DEADLOCK IN RAIL
Employes Flatly Beject Compromise
Offer Presented by Bepresenta-
tires of the Companies.
ALL OB HOTHDTO," SAT KEN
New York, June 12. The confer
ence between the representative of
the railroads of the United States and
their 350,000 employes, called to evert
e threatened general strike, came to
a Sudden halt shortly arter resuming
sessions here today, when the rail
roads submitted a counter proposal
to the demands of the men.
' The workers have asked for an
eight-hour day, time and a half for
overtime and the continuation of the
existing rules calling for double com
pensation for different classes of ser
vices during the same working day.
The conference adjourned until
later in the day, when the railroads
will make a reply to what is consid
ered the ultimatum of the men, declin
ing to consider the railroads' proposi
tion, described as ' the "yard-stick"
method of compensation.'
. . . Railroads Offer Compromise.
The railroads' answer to the men's
demand was a tentative offer of com
promise, granting the eight-hour day
and overtime, providing the double
compensation rule is wiped out. In
other words, the railroads maintain
that if the men desire a shortened day
they must put in the full time in
whatever class of service they are as
signed. Under existing rules an en
gineer on a 100-mile run, usually con
sidered day's work, is granted over
time if within his working day he
performs aeother class of service.
The break came from their reading
of the outline of the "yard-stick
method by Elishs Lee, chairman of
the railroad managers. Heated objec
tions were immediately made by the
; ' Ultimatum from Oarretson.
A. B. Oarretson, president of the
Order of Railroad Conductors,' voiced
the sentiments of the men when he
said in reply to Mr. Lee:
"Our proposition is not modifiable
it is either It or nothing. Our propo
sition's chief demand is the eight-hour
day. The overtime is simply a penalty
to enforce iL Our answer is that if
the 'yard-stick' is your united offer
there is no reason for the continuation
of this conference."
Chairman Lee declared the attitude
of the men made it impossible to pro
ceed and he ordered an adjournment
until the afternoon, when he would
announce, he said, whether the rail
roads will continue with the confer
ence Or not - i

val of the republican candidate here
from Washington. It was the revival
of the Hughes alliance, an organize
tion of republicans, democrats and
independent voters, which came, into
existence during the second campaign
of Mr. hughea for governor of New
York in 1908. . .
The announcement was made by
Travis , H. Whitney, public . service
commissioner, one of the first to meet
Mr. Hughes on his arrival on an
early morning train.
Mr. Whitney accompanied the pres
idential candidate to the Hotel Astor,
where Mr. Hughes has established his
headquarters. He said that the same
rnen who were identified with the
Hughes alliance bad decided to get to
gether to work in New York state
for the election of their candidate,
probably - under the name of the'
Hughes Nonpartisan league. The or
ganisation, he said, would establish
headquarters here and co-operate with
the regular republican organiration.
He added " that his organization
planned to provide Mr, Hughes with
personal headquarters for his visits to
New York. ... i
Hughst Arrives. ; ";,
, "I have nothing to say on politics
ft this time," Mr. Hughes said, greet
ing newspaper men who met him on
the ferryboat which brought,him over
the Hudson. This waa in response to
question as to whether he would
see Colonel Roosevelt during his stay
here. . ., .
, ' "I have eome here primarily to
make my plans for the aummef," con
tinued the presidential candidate.
"New York, by the way, is where I
belong, and I am glad to get back
Mr. Hughea admitted (there were
certain "important matters to dis
ease but-efforts by the newspaper
men to learn at this time what his spe
cific plansswere proved futile.
Just as Mr. Hughes went aboard the
ferry the sun came out for the first
time in nearly a week and the illumi
nation of the New York skyline was
very evidently a pleasing sight to him.
His presence on the train that
brought him from Washington was
unknown to all but a few of i;is fel
low passengers. When he left the
tram be attracted no attention, but
aboard the ferry was recognized by
commuters coming to the city from
their Jersey homes. They made no
demonstration. No appointments had
been made with republican leaders
for this forenoon, according to' Mr.
Hughes' secretary, who added that
the length of his stay in New York
at this time was uncertain. He said
also that it wss as 'yet undecided
whether Mr. Hughes would receive
here or in Washington the 'conven
tion committee which is to formally
notify him of his nomination.
V Duty Supremely Clear. -
Mr. Hughes received newspaper
men during the forenoon, but de
clined to discuss his plans. He was
asked how it felt "to be drafted for
the biggest job In the world."
, "I can onJy say," he' replied, "there
ere certain circumstances under
which a matter of duty is supremely
clear and which leaves no ground for
hesitancy in this case. There was no
Juestion in this situation as to what
should do. I did it and in my an
nouncement to the people I endeav
ored to make my attitude clear."
, "I came here to bold consultations
in regard to arrangements for the fu
ture. I can sey nothing in respect to
lue details at this time."
Mr. hughes then posed, smilingly,
for moving picture men.

John C. Wharton, who also knew

"He demonstrated more thoroughly

without influence and without ex.

yellow parasols will stand in silence

to make their points.
Seats for Contributors.
Contributors who gave $5 or more
to the $100,000 fund that brought the
convention to St. Louis were made
happy today by an ' announcement
that they would get tickets to at least
one of the sessions. The association
which raised the fund has 2,300 tick

Kick on Long Sessions.
The convention managers are hear

are being told by the leaders that a
convention has more purposes for the
party than nominations and adoption
of a platform. It brings all the lead
ers together in one assembly to plan
the campaign. t
"All the expedients adopted by
George W. Perkins and his fellow
workers at the Ghost Dance conven
tion in Chicago last week, to prevent
a nomination are likely to be resorted
to here," said one democratic leader.
"The whole business actually could
be finished in a day if that were de
sirable. The platform is as good as ,
written and the balloting is only a
formality, but the city of St Louis
contributed $100,000, and we have
agreed that the convention shall run

The convention managers realize
the necessity of keeping the delegates
entertained. It was understood that
at some time during the speech mak
ing, William J. Bryan might be in
vited to address the convention on
party achievements. Today there
still were no indications that , Mr.
Bryan intends to take part in the ac
tual oroceedenKS by proxy.
Mr. Brvah. however, who. his
friends say, will support President
Wilson, is expected to appear before
the resolutions committee at open
hearings to urge the adoption of

other questions he advocates.

More influential members of the na
