Compromise Offer of the Scranton
Railway Company Is Ac
cepted By the Men.
CARS WILL RUN TODAY
Yesterday the Officers of the Scran
ton Railway Company Communi
cated to the Executive Committee
of the Strikers an Offer Which In
cluded a Ten-Hour Day and a Con
siderable Increase Over the
Amount the Men Have Been Re
ceivingAt a Meeting of the Strik
ers, Which Ended at 2 O'clock
This Morning the Offer Was Ac
cepted and the Men Agreed to Go
to Work at Once.
The strike Is settled!
It was called off at l-'.-ir, o'clock this
morning, after n. spirited two hours'
discussion of a compromise proposition
from the company, resulting' from the
negotiations which The Tribune told of
exclusively Saturday morning' and
which every other puper, excepting tho
Free Press and Klmlra Telegram, de
nied were under way.
The men secure almost all that they
They were getting: First six months,
12i cents: second six months, Vi'x
cents; second year, 14 cents; .third
year, 1" cents; fourth year, 15 S3-100
cents; fifth year, 16 67-100 cptits.
They are to receive: First six
months, 14 cents; second six months,
15 cents; second year, 16 cents; third
year, 17 cents; fourth year, lS'.i
cents; fifth year, 19 cents.
This was their demand:
1. A llMiour day.
'J. All coiuluctois and niotumieti in liie im
plny of the .Suantnn li.iihiuy company lur one
(1) year or ocr, 20 cents per hour.
.'!. For new men: l'ii-l tluee months, 1., mils

fourth time mouths, lb cents per hour. AH

Uarn men employed hy the company -i- months
or more shall leceive 17' tents per hour, and
when woikir.e; with a helper shall leceive Ji ccnls
per hour. Men cinplojed in teh iiiaililno shop on
the floor shall leceive IT1,-, cents per hour, ami
when employed on iloor and lathe .shall ioceie
20 cents per hour, after one year. 'IVn horns
shall coistitnte a day's uoil..
This scale is to prevail on all lines ,pci.iliii
between Forest City and 1'itlstou.
"WHAT TIIKY GET.
The ten-hour day Is granted, but the
adjustment of the wages of the barn
men is left for future consideration.
The barn men objected to this at Hist,
but after a committee of their own
number had had a conference with
President Clark and General Manager
Sillhvian, they withdrew their objec
tions. The Carbondale men wanted to be
placed on the same footing as those of
this city, but this the company would
not concede. When the Carbondale
company was taken In by tho. Scran
ton company last March the men were
placed in the second year class. This
gave them a twenty per cent, advance
over the -wages they were receiving
before the consolidation.
The new scale is to take effect to
morrow. The men are to be paid from the
'time they take the car out of the burn
until it is returned by them.
Meal time is to be deducted and not
Straight, runs are to be arranged as
soon as possible.
The re-arrangement of the runs will
reaulre two more men for every ten
now employed. Tho company oflicials
suggested that as they had a lot of
extra men on hand this would present
no great dllllculty. The strikers' con
ference committee said they could not
for a moment even consider the idea
of working alongside the Imported
men, and the company agreed to send
them all away,
Hecauso of his son being among the
strikers, It was very cmbanasslng for
Dispatcher Charles Powell to continue
to act with tho other nlllclnls, so Gen
eral .Manager Sllllmau considerately
gavo hint a leave of absence until tho
strike was settled. The strlkeis' con
ference committed wanted assurance
that Mr, Powell was not to be made to
suffer for his conduct during' the strike
and the assurance) was readily slvcu.
It was further stated by Mr. Whitman
and President Clark that no man
would be discriminated against be
cause of his connection with the strike,
no matter how prominently he may
have figured in it.
RESUME THIS SIOitNIXG.
The men at first decided to resume
work at noon after a parade In uni
form, but at the solicitation of the
company officials they will get around
tills morning as early as they can. It
Is expected tho road will be in full op
eration by noon time.
Tho negotiations for the settlement
of the, strike began Friday. Henry J,
Collins, the Lackawanna avenue cloth
ier, prompted by an Interest In the
city's business welfare, arranged u
meeting between Director Timothy
llurUe, of tho Rullway company, and
a committee of tho strikers, consisting
of P. J. siessett, .George Keglar and I
J, Tlgue. They met In Mr, Uurke's
otllce In the connell building at 4.30 and
were In session for over an hour.
The committee suld it had made a
proposition and had no other proposi
tion to make. It would, however, glva
due consideration to any proposition
the company might muke, 'Sir. Burke
promised to see what could be donu.
After consulting Sir. Sllllman, he te'e
graphed for President Clurk and Sir.
Clark came on that very night, arriv
not exiect him so soon and was not 'it
town when he nrtived,
Mr. Burke and his brother, John, who
is Jointly interested with him in the
trolley company, returned to tho city
at 11,30 Saturday night nnil nt once
hastened to the Jurmyn and had a. long
consultation with President Clark unci
General Manager Hllllman.
At midnight the strikers' conference
committee was given notice to meet
the company oflicials at Burke Bros.'
office yestcrdaymornlngat 10.30 o'clock.
They met and conferted, and the com
mittee came away with a proposition
from the company. It was submitted
to the executive committee of the
strikers' union, but was not satisfac
tory in some minor respects and an
other conference with the officials re
sulted. The offer was reconstructed
and in Its new form was given the
unanimous approval of the executive
A meeting of the union was called
for !l o'clock in Carpentets' hall, Wyo
ming avenue, to consider the proposi
tion. Nearly all the employes from
every line were In attendance.
P. .T. Mes.sselt presented the com
mittee's report and recommendation,
and made a scries of strong- speeches
In favor of the acceptance of the pro
position. Others of th? committee,
various of the members, and National
Executive Committeeman Howes nlso
spoke in favor of acceptance. The
Carbondale men made a mild objec
tion, but when It came to a vote, few
voices were raised against tho motion
to accept the offer and call off the
OBJECTIONS OF BAHN MKN.
The objections from the barn men
kept the meeting In session much
longer than it otherwise would have
been. A recess was taken to give
them an opportunity of consulting the
olllcials of the coinpauy, who were fit
tho Jerniyn, waiting to hear the action
of the union. "When the barn men re
turned, the expressed themselves as
satisfied to let the strike be called
oi'f, having been assured of th same
liberal consideration given the car
men. Their wages arc to be regulated
according to tho individual's worth in
tho estimation of tho master me
chanic. Most of them are practically
assured of a generous increase.
When the vote had been declared a
committee was sent to invite the com
pany officials to come to the hall. They
accepted and were given a rousing wel
come. President Clark, General Mana
ger Sllllman and the Messrs. Burke
each made happy responses to the
greeting extended by Chairman Pat
rick Shea and Executive Committee

The officials expressed the hope that
the men would turn in and give their

property of the company on a paying
basis and nil expressed their satisfac

The strikers went in a body yester
day morning to Elm Park church and
listened to n sermon doliver.-'d by Dr.
At 11.35 last night ten more
men arrived in the city from
New York in charge of two de
tectives and wore taken ,at once
to the company's office on Lacka
wanna avenue and later to the Lin
den street barn. There was no ob
jection to the landing of this- party of
"imports," as the strikers were in at
tendance at the meeting in Carpen
Two of the "imports" were taken
from the Linden street barn yesterday
to the Scranton private hospital. One
is suffering from pneumonia and the
other from grip.
Quiet, Then Disorder.
Though It was tho Sabbath, the
strike sympathizers could not restrain
their tendencies to demonstrate their
sympathy in an active way, and as a
consenuence a number of exciting In
cidents are to be recorded. The un
warranted denials by the afternoon
papers of The Tribune's story of tho
negotiations for settlement were re
sponsible In no small measure for this.
The company took out n dozen cars
and had as many as eight men on
some of them, but the assaults were
so numerous and vkioiis that it was
deemed advisable to take the cars In
at noon. Every car had some of its
windows smashed. No attempt was
made to take tho cars out again.
A Green ltldso suburban car, with
eight Imported men aboard, was held
up on North Adams avenue, near tho
Consumers' Ice company plant, during
the morning, by a crowd numbering
several hundred. Tho crow became
frightened when the crowd commenced
to dose In on them, nnd when the
crowd saw they were thoroughly
cowed, some of the leaders jumped
aboard, pulled tho crew from the plat
forms nnd ordered them to decamp,
Boston Head Lettuce,
Long Island Celery,
Very Fine Jersey Sweets,
and Grape Fruit,
Fresh Huyler Candy,
F. 6. Coursen
The "Imports" beat a hasty retreat
through the fields lit the direction of
Dunmore, followed by a couple of hun
dred boys, who pelted them with stones.
What became of the fugitives could
not bo learned, i
A car on the laturel Hill line was
held up, near tho Dunmore Lumber
company's office, and tho crew assault
ed. The crowd ngreed to let the crew
off If they wotlld desert the company,
nnd upon their promise to do so they
were released. The wreck car brought
ln the two deserted cars.
On Capouse avenue, between Gibson
ami Pine streets, bricks had been piled
up along the curb, preparatory to pav
ing between the street car rails. Yes
terday morning boys curried these to
the trucks and piled them on the rails.
On "Washington avenue, near Phelps
street, thete was a pile of obsl melons
made up of all sorts of rubbish,
Swetland street was made almost Im
passible by the obstructions piled up to
block the car tracks. Old wagons, a
bob-sleigh and an old bellows tilled
with rocks are some of the obstruc
tions brought Into use here.
On North Muin avenue, near Price
street, a, mound was built up of a bob
sleigh freighted with barrels, pieces of
timber and a large amount of rubbish.
In front of Becker Bros. factory, on
Hoblnsoit street, another mound ws
built ot' a varied mass of material and
atop It was displayed a placard read
ing: "Union Job. Eight Hours."
Barrels Jllled with stones were placed
on the tracks on Prescott avenue. At
the corner of Pcnn avenue and Linden
street rubbish was piled on the track
and tho latch pried froniK.the switch
with a crowbar.
In Mlnooka the rails were torn uo
In several places and Immense rocks
placed on the Hacks.
The Tribune's exclusive announce
ment of the negotiations for settling
the strike resulted In a comparatively
riuiel Saturday. The strikers',, sympa
thizers thought that further demon
strations of sympathy by means of
violence were not called for and con
tented themselves with hooting and
jeering the imported men who ran half
a. dozen cars about the central city for
a few hours of the day. Some cars
were stoned while passing through the
suburbs, but there was no throwing ot
missiles on Lackawanna avenue, as
was the case on the previous day.
.Mayor Moir had given orders to the
police to rigidly enforce the law, but
they found that the order had been
made finite unnecessary by The Trib
une's appearance with tho exclusive
story of the negotiations for strike
settlement. A teamster, "William A.
Young, who evidently had not heard
that the war was over, persisted in
blocking a car on Franklin avenue and
was taken Into custody by Patrolman
Neuls. Me was discharged with a rep
rimand. Imports and Exports.
Twenty-three of the twenty-five
men brought on-by the company from
Philadelphia and who laid over In
"Wllkes-P.arre during the night, ar
rived here Saturday morning nt 0
o'clock, in charge of Special Agent
Sweeney. Nino of them deserted im
mediately upon their arrival and ac
companied the strikers to their head
quarters. They told that they had
been engaged as special officers to
protect street car property, and were
to receive $5 per day, board and trav
eling expenses. The treatment the
loceived at the hands of the "Wilkos
Barreans caused two of them to desert
on the spot. The nine who deserted here
would have turned back from "Wilkes
Barro, they said, but they had no
money and tho company officials re
fused to send them home.
They were sent back by the strik
ers Saturday night. Six others, four
lrom Cleveland nnd two from Now
York, were sent back yesterday morn
ing. Some figure that the company has
brought In 210 men and that there are
about ninety of them still in tho city,
most of them working for the com
pany. Tho strikers say they do not
know how many men the company
has Impoi ted, but they do know that
they have sent back 157 and that there
arc only between thirty tind forty men
on duty for the company.
To Appoint Specials.
In 1SC5 an act was passed by the
legislature empowering the governor
to appoint special officers to protect
railroad comfiany property, the ap
pointments to be made on petition of
tho railroad company and tin com
pany to hire and pay the officers.
Claiming that it was unable lo se
cure police protection hero the Scran
ton Railway company mi Saturday
despatched representatives lo llar
rlsburg and made application for
commissions for special police, The
act has never been brought to apply
to street railways and the authoiltles
it llnrrlsbui'g were somewhat diffi
dent about Issuing them, but when
the trolley company's representatives
ramo forward with n decision saourei'f
from the Dauphin county court that a
trolley road came within the moaning
of tho act, the governor agreed to Is
aio tho commissions.
If the strike was not settled, Presi
dent I'iuik said yesterday afternoon,
and tho Interference with tho running
ot the cars did not cease, tho company
would proceed lo engago enough
specials to assure full protection In
"Wo could secure a thousand men
under this act, if we wanted thorn,"
President Clark went on to say, "They
would not be under the direction of
the .sheriff, the mayor or any other
nubile official, Tho company would
have full direction of them and would
ho sworn to do the company's bidding.
They can be recruited from any
who'ro In the state and tho commis
sion gives them the same powers as
those of a city pollen rllleur, Tho ict
prescribes that their powers shall bo
the sumo as those of n pollen officer
of tho city nf Philadelphia,
"I hope we will not havo occasion
to bring special officers here, but we
are determined that our .iroporty
shall be protected, "Wo applied to the
mayor to give us protection, but ho
has failed to do so. "Wo wanted htm
to swear In specials, but this he re
fused to do, AVn went to the sheriff
and asked him to appoint deputies to
guard our property, Ho promised to
do so, but didn't, Ills excuse was that
ho could not secure any. Ills deputy,
a Sir, Ferher, was sent out, I under
stand, to secure deputies and re
turned with tho statement that he
could not secuto oven one man to take
lio job. That was probably true, but
we offered to furnish men secured
cllned to accept theim The public
Bhould understand Hint we did Hot go
looking for stnte aid tttttll we had

SERMON FOR MASONS.
Special Services Conducted in Penu
Avenue Church Last Night.
l!uv. Dr. Robert F. Y. Pierce, pastor
nt' the Pcnn Avenue Baptist church,
delivered a special sermon last night
to the members of the Masonic order.
There were a large number of Masons
present from all parts of the city,
though they did not come In a body.
"The Glorified Vision," was the topic
of his sermon, and he found his text
In Rev. v: 5, "Tho Lion of the tribe of
.ludah." He dwelt especially upon the
wonderful principles of the order,
which has endured the persecutions of
centuries. He said that with the ex
ception of the Chtlstian church, thciv
is today no single organization doing
so much for the uplift of mankind and
the softening of humanity as the Ma
Tn Its ranks, he said, might be found
the foremost Christian men of overy
prominent city in the land. There are
not attracted, he said, by the high
sounding titles or by the regalia of
office, but bv the Christ-like princi
ples of the organization.

The fire was of unknown origin, but
