Tile notkes posted by Muster Car
Builder L. T. Canfleld and Superin
tendent of Motive Power and Machin
ery T. S. Lloyd, announcing that nil the
striking employes of the car and ma
chine shops departments wiio did not
return to worki yesterday morning
would bo discharged mid elforts made
to All the men's places, failed to have
any effect, n not a man reported for
duty yesterday morning.
No work Is being done at (lie car
shops, save that performed by the few
foremen who have been there since the
beginning of the trouble. At the tnn
ehlne shops the men Imported Tuesday
morning were busied during tho day,
but the strikers reported sending a
number or them back to New York,
together with the others who came in
Tuesday night and members of a party
of about eighteen men who arrived
yesterday afternoon.
Yesterday was the day upon which
Stipcrlnlemlent Slade, of the luinmnro
Iron and Steel company, was expected

i aluiiavtei's' during tlio early part of
tin week, Mr. Slade, however, when
interrogated by a Tribune man, denied
that ho had fixed any date for giving
the committee his reply, and declared
that work was going on as usual at
the shops, lie declined to discuss tho
situation, or to make any statement
regarding the posMblo course of action
of I lie Dunniore employers.
Kihleen iiien arrived in the city
from Iloboken on the 1.5." o'clock train
yesterday afternoon, but when they
learned of the existing conditions re
fused to go to work. Two of them ap
peared at tho car builders' headquar
ters and stated they were employed at
Iloboken, being offered $2 a day and
board. One of tho men said lie was a
street car employe by occupation, and
the other claimed to be a sold boater.
Twelve of these left during the .'ifter
noon, and about twenty were sent back
to New York during tho morning, both
machinists and car builders defraying
the expenses. Some of the men sent
away in tho morning belonged to the
crowd brought in Tuesday morning and
quartered in tlio paint shops. Chair
man Campbell yesterday stated that
the outside help imported evidently
were in awe of the strikers, as one of
their number reported at the machin
ists' headquarters yesterday morning
and asked if they would be harmed if
tlioy left tho shops.
The messenger was assured of proper
treatment, and then loft to join ills
companions. Tho Lackawanna strikers
mot yesterday afternoon in Ilulbert's
hall and discussed matters generally,
and tomorrow night the Machinists'
union will meet. The Federal Labor
union was in session Tuesday night,
and adopted the recommendation of the
council of affiliated employes, regard
ing the course of action to be adopted
Monday in case of a negative answer
from ttie different companies.
This union takes in over eight hun
dred helpers in the city, all of whom
will go out Monday, unless tlio nine
hour day is granted. Saturday night the
council will meet at 7.30 o'clock and
hear the reports of the delegates from
tho different unions regarding the no
tion taken by them on tho matter. The
machinists' delegates will act for them
selves, as empowered by the local.
Chairman Campbell in a conversa
tion with n Tribune man declared that
It would be the policy of the strikers
to keep away from the shops and In
no way interfere with tlio men working
there. From now on it will bo a wall

this sort of manouevring will eventu

large amount of business wus tran

An important feature of the session
was tho outlining of a, policy to bo

made to operato the car shops with

Michael Cummlsk Committed Suicide
in the Large Body of Water at
No. 5. East of Minookn.
Mk-hael Cummlsk, of Minookn, met
death by drowning In the big No. u
reservoir, two miles east of that place,
yesterday afternoon, and according to
the story of Michael lliggins, who was
with htm at the time, it ivas a case ot
Cummlsk and Ulgglns were tvio of
n small party of men who. wore loafing
In front of a saloon on Main street,
Minookn, about - o'clock In the after
noon. Cummlsk invited Illgglns to go
for a stroll in the woods and iHlggins
accepted. They walked along leisure
ly, chatting on ordinary topics, and
Cummlsk, so Iliggins says, gave no
indication that he was contemplating
any rash deed.
After nn hour's walk they reached
the reservoir and began to stroll along
Ity edge. Suddenly Cummlsk stopped
and, facing Iliggins, said something
about having just received a letter
fioin his wife in Ireland and of his
not having opened it. The next mo
ment he reached iirto htb itrousers
pocket, drew out what little money he
had and threw it to Higgins, saying:
"There, Mike; good bye," and before
the words were fairly out of his mouth
he turned and plunged head first ino
the wafer.
AVlien ho re-appeared Iliggins jumped
in, grabbed him and tried to drag
him ashore. Cummlsk fought desper
ately and succeeded in tearing him
self loose. Higgins grappled him again
and continued the struggle sometimes
on top of the water and sometimes
beneath the surface. Cummlsk was a
powerful man and, made the more
powerful by desperation, it was more
than Iliggins could do to bring him
ashore. It was not, however, until
Cummlsk had broken away again and
disappeared that Higgins returned to
the shore. He watched for Cummlsk
to come up again, but the vigil was
"When he was satisfied there was no
longer hope of saving his friend, Ilig
gins hastened to Minookn. and gave
the alarm. A parly was organized to
seek to recover the body and at f)..'.i)
last night they succeeded, under direc
tion of Iliggins, in locating it and fish
ing it out. It was brought to the home
of his sister in Minookn.
Cummlsk had lived in Minookn for
a number of years and was reported
to bo ii man of good habits and sound
sense. Ho was an occasional drinker,
but was perfectly sober yesterday, and,
ns far ns any one noticed, perfectly
rational In every other respect.
No ono could bo found Inst night
who could throw nny light on the prob
able cause of Cummisk's rash action,
The fact that just before he jumped
into the water ho spoke of having
received a letter from his wife, whom
he left in the old country, is taken to
bi significant,

f 1. R. Leo Huber, Scrim-
-t- ton 3
The first return ot points In-this
year's Educational Contest was made
yesterday afternoon. Three were hand
ed In by Ii. Leo Huber, of Seranton,
who thus becomes the leader.
There were more entries in the con
test yesterday Frank Kemmerer, of
Factoryvllle; Charles R. .Tones, of
Green Ridge, and Robert Campbell, of
Green Ridge. Mr. Kemmerer Is a
brother of Arthur Kemmerer, who
cninc in second in last year's contest,
winning a three years' scholarship in
the Bloomsburg Normal school. Rob
ert Campbell was In last year's con
test, and although ha did not finish
among the first ten, he received enough
encouragement from the commission
he earned to enroll his name for the
second time.
Although the applications for the
books of subscription blanks have
come In in encouraging numbers, there
is plenty of room for now material and
plenty of territory for thorn to work
In. As yet there Is but one contestant
who has scored points, so all who start
now will do so on equal terms with the
rest who have entered. It would be
much better for all who arc hesitating
to start, now, when they can "toe the
line" with the whole field than to wait
until a number have scored, and thus
have to begin with a handicap.
Where There Is Room.
In the city there should be at least
thirty contestants, in order to cover the
ground in anything like a thorough
manner, while outside of Seranton there
are more than three scores of towns
where an energetic worker should be
able to do first-class work. Among
these towns which are as yet unrepre
sented in tho contest are such places
as Pittston, Avoca, Moosic, Olyphant,
Winton, Arclibald, Jermyn. Mayfleld,
Forest City, Vandling, Uniondale,
Thompson, AVaymart, Honesdalc. Mos
cow, Stroudsburg, Elnihurst, Clark's
Summit, Glenburn, Dalton, Nicholson,
Foster, New Mtlford, Montrose and
Hallstead, in each of which The Trib
une has a good circulation and many
friends, and whore thoro are excellent
prospects for any young man or wo
man who enters. Besides tho places
named there are many others offering
first-class opportunities for an ener
getic canvasser, who works under the
conditions of The Tribune's Educa
tional Contest.
Make Returns Promptly.
Those who have already enrolled
their names should make returns to
the Seranton ofllce of The Tribune as
soon as possible, as their new sub
scribers will be much bettor satisfied if
they receive their paper the morning
after they have paid for it. Those con
testants living in Seranton should come
to the olllce before l" o'clock each day
they have points to record. This course
will greatly facilitate the necessary
work in connection with the contest.
As fast as points are received they
will bo credited to the contestants, and
