MUNTRKAL. July. 19.-A new turn was
(elvrn to the situation In the strike of thi
Grand Trunk railroad conductors and train
nun herw shortly after noon, by the receipt
of a dispatch from ths minister of labor ar
Ottawa, 'offering on behalf of the 'govern
ment to appoint a board of arbitration on
tlm trouble between the ceiiipuuy and its
employe, the finding to be binding on both
and the government to bear all expenses in
The offer was submitted in the form of a
letter to President Hayes of the Grand
Trunk and to the head officials of the
unions Involved, and is now under consid
er nt I ti by them.
While there is no intimation of how they
will act upon the offer it Is known that
Mroiig pressure Is being brought to bear
tixm both sides to accept. It Is thought
that from the fact that President If aye
bus already made an offer to arbitrate thai
difficulty that the company at least will
accede to the proposal.
Advices frcm all divisional points of the
Oraad Trunk In Canada and from Port
Huron and Detroit Indicate that the com
pany Is. having greater difficulty in keep
lntf Its tmitis moving than was at first
apparent. At some points no tickets are
being sold because of the Inability of the
company to guarantee a complete journey.

Kansas Insurgent Talks of Wlatleld
Speech, lu Which Ha Makes Claim
of Exposing Alleged Trust
TOPEKA, July 19. Senator Joseph L,
Brlstow, the "insurgent," In a speech here
this afternoon, pronounced Speaker Cannon.
, poor Judge of rubber. Speaker Cannon, at
Burllngam yesterday, replying to a former
speech of Senator Brlstow's said the sen
ator had either'"wlllfully or knowingly or
ignorantly," misrepresented the facts when
he said that the Increased duty on manu
factured rubber had resulted In a lament-
tile decrease In importations of that com
The senator, Mr. Cannon said, liked .to
brand everybody who disagreed with him
as dishonest and that these remarks on
rubber gave him a chance to accuse Mr.
Aldrich of being a member of the rubber
Robber and Rubber.
Mr. Cannon," said Mr. Brlstow this aft
moon, "forgets that there is rubber and
rubber. When he says that, the Increased
uties on manufactured rubber did not re
suit in a decrease in Importation he would
seem to refer only to hard rubber, the kind
that Is sometimes used In making rules.
Let the speaker look up the robber question
nd he will find that there are several
kinds of elastic or soft rubber to which my
statements apply exactly." ; "
I am told that Speaker' Cannon said he
did not know that Senator Aldrich organ
ized a tf ust. In my ' Winf leld address I
set forth facts as contained In official
documents, in Poor's Manual and in the
Wall Street Journal, which are considered
reliable authority by every business man In
this country. "Whether or not Senator Aid'
rich Is guilty of a technical violation of
the statutes I do not know. It la the duty
of the attorney general of the United
States to Investigate violations of the Sher
man anti-trust law. But I do know that
he Is guilty of violation of political 'de
cency, of political honesty.
"It would have been better taste for
Speaker Cannon to demand that his com
mittee of representatives stand by the
house tariff schedule than to ask them to
siana xor tne Aiaricn schedule, and then.
that' Cannon t hould come to Kansas to de
fend the tariff bill and the men who dic
tated Its passage."

Texas Visitor's Adventure
With Misguided Trunk
This is not exactly a heart-throb story of
the Joe Mitchell 'Chappie type, yet there
was more or less heart fluttering when
j William A. Rice, business manager of the
Amarlllo Polly Js'ews, who Is In Omaha
for a summer vacation, opened a trunk that
he supposed to be his, but wasn't.
Expecting to be away from Amarlllo for
several weeks, Mr. Rice' packed his trunk
rather liberally as to sartorial equipment,
and soon after arriving In Omaha he had
the trunk rempved to his room. Desiring to
gentleman would consent to wear. What
r. Klce said well, his utterance of sur
prise may well be omitted. Being of an
Inquiring trend, he searched further and
brought out as fine a wardrobe as modiste
ana laaie' rurnlsher ever sent forth.
Somewhere along the line the baggage
man made a mistake and somewhere else
along the line there Is a woman pining
for her misguided wearing apparel. From
papers found in the trunk, Mr. Rlc deduces
that the trunk he acquired by mlsteVe bo-
