Practically all of the Delaware,

Tho Wllkes-Harre shop of the AIIIb

yesterday moinlug with Its full force.
There wan an expectation that some
friction would come of throwing the
teturncd strikers nnd Imported men
together nt the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Western shops, but the expecta
tion was ull awry.
Tho Imported men numbered nbout
323, nnd 140 of these were professional
sttlke bteakers, supplied from the
Drummond agency In New York. They
were paid thirty cents nn hour nnd
given ftee lodgings nnd meals. Pome
of them woiked day and night, with
only a few bouts' test, nnd cat tied ns
high ns $5 it day. As long as the big
wages continued they were content,
but the moment the strike was de

wages substituted, off they went for

good, green and long.

It now develops that a large number
of tho Imported men were boarding In
hotels and private houses throughout
the city. One of tho piofessional
strike breakeis was stopping at a
leading hotel In the central city and
came to work every day In a frock
coat, striped trousers, patent leather
f.hoes and high silk hat.
Sixty of the "professionals" went
from here to help break a sttlke In the
Missouri raclflc railroad shops. Othets
of them, it Is said, ate going to Read
ing. There was a report In oh dilation
that the whole crowd of Diummond
men were to go to the Allls-Chnlmers
shops this nioi nlng, but Superintend
ent JIcLaten denied this, saying he
had had no negotiations whatever with
any strlke-breakcts' agency.
The claim Is made thnt the Drum
mond agency offered to supply the
Delaware, Lacknwnnna nnd Western
company with eight hundred flist-class
machinists. The company, however,
contented Itself with Just enough to
keep up the Immediately necessary re
pairs. Tho reason more of them wete
not taken was that they command
thirty centH an hour, with free board
and lodging, and the man who supplies
them must be paid a commission tor
every day each one of them works.
The statement that the Allls-Chal-mers
men ate n unit In their detctmln
atlon to stay out till they win a vie
tory Is taken exception to by Superin
tendent McLaren. Ho says that thir
teen old men who went on strike re
turned to work yesterday, and that he
learned from various sources that mnny
mote contemplate icturnlng today or
tomorrow. Ho also says that as many
as thirty men who reluctantly went on
sttlke left their nddrcsscs with him
when they went nway to seek employ
ment In other places, with the request
that ho send for them nt the fltfit signs

STRUGGLE FOR THE
BODY OF C0MPT0N
Divorced Wife and His Alleged Son
Are Arrayed Against the Father
and Brother of the Deceased.
Cornelius Compton, aged 44 years, of
Ninth stieet, died yesterday aftetnoon
on the opeiatlng table tit tho Moses
Taylor, hospital nnd now his father
and brother, on one side, and his dl
otced wife nnd his alleged son, nn
the other, nte contending for posses
sion of his body.
As soon ns he died at tho hospltnl
yesterday afternoon, tho young man
who claims to be Compton's son, went
to Undertaker Pi Ice nnd told him to
temoe the body to his undertaking
establishment to await his ordets. He
said thnt his name Is Claude Edwards
and that he lived with his mother,
I.auta Edwards, of 113 South Hyde
Patk avenue, who was divorced from
Compton about five yeats ngo.
Undertaker Pi Ice took the tcmalns
to his establishment, on North Wash-
Inton avenue, and was much surprised
ently in the evening, nt a visit from
the dead man's father nnd brother,
Jacob and Jehlel Compton, lespec-
tlvely, both ot Hnllstead, who de
manded that they be given the body.
They stated that Compton's wife
and the young man who claims to bo
his son had not lived with him for
live years and that accordingly they
had no legal or moral right to his
body. The undei taker was in a quan
dary, but finally decided not to release
the body until ordeted to do so by
Edwards or by coutt.
Young Edwards consulted Attorney
John V. Sctagg before taking pos
slon of the body and can ho expected
to fight any attempt on the part ot
the other side to secure It. Tho two
Comptons, father and son, after con
sulting with Mr. Price, decided to see
Attorney E. C. Newcomb and bad a
long conference with hltn late last
night. It Is understood that legal pro
ceedings will be begun early this
morning to secute possession of the
"This young man who claims to be
my brother's son has no right to his
body," said Jacob Compton last night
to a Tribune man. "Both he and his
mother have neglected him for five
years, and he has so littlo respect for
him that ho doesn't even use his name,
but calls himself Edwards. He won't
get the body If I can prevent It."

jD QL 111 mortgages have
considered among the safest in
vestments. The one drawback
which they have always had has
been the lack of convertibility. It
the mortgagee desired to sell, he
must wait until the title has been
examined, and then possibly lose
his purchasers because of some de
lect or irregularity in the tltle.whicb
the purchaser's attorney may dis
cover. The mortgagee's policy of
this company may be assigned with
a bond and mortgage by the simple
endorsement of the mortgagee.
There is no expense ; it is as simple
as endorsing a check or note.
