The home of II. .1. Schubert, on

about llfteeii minutes when she
glanced toward the door. Sho was
startled to behold a man standing mo

up things preparatory to entering.
Mis. Schubert screamed to her hus
band, telling him there was a man In
the house, and he jumped from the
bed und made for the door. The
burglar dashed down the stairs and
when Mr. Schubert made to follow
him, he llieil his levolver Inot the
lloor to show that he was prepared
tn shoot In case he was followed.
This caused Mr. Schubeit to leniem
her that he had no revolver with him
and he went back to his rom to get
one of two which he had In he house.

FIGHT IT OUT
CAR BUILDERS ARE NOT AT ALL
At a Meeting Held Yesterday After
noon They Unanimously Decided
to Remain on Strlko Until a Reas
onable Concession Is Granted.
President Mc Andrew Says Strikors
Will Now Tako the Aggressive.
Wealthy Citizon Said to Bo Ready
to Advance Money to tho Strikors.
The striking car builders met yester
day at 4 p. tn., in Carpenters' halt, and
after hearing tho report of Secretary
1. S. Coyne, of his f utile effort to
effect a compromise with President
Trucsdale, voted unanimously to stay
out on strike until a tcusonablo con
cession Is secured.
The proposition made to President
Truesdalo was that the men should
xecedo from the nine-hour demand If
tho company would reinstate them at
a reasonable Increase In wages. Presi
dent Truesdalo refused to make uny
concessions whatever, saylnjr he had
never lost In a strike conlllct and
didn't piopose to lose In this,
Piesldcnt McAndrow said to a Trib
une reporter at the conclusion of the
"It was tho most enthusiastic meet
ing we ever hold. There was not as
much as n word to Indicate the slight
est wavering anywheie. We have
more money In our treasury than we
had when the strike was declared, and
the men are more determined than
ever to gain a victory, If It takes all
summer. Thus far, wo have been on
the defense. From this out we will
take the nggiessivo. Wo have plans
In mind that will surely lead to vic
tory. Hcfore putting them Into execu
tion wo want to consult with our na
tional ot -crs. President A. T. Fish,
of iiuffali was telegraphed for today,
and will be' with us tomorrow. After
we have had a conference with him,
we will be ready tn act."
President MeAndicw reported to the
meeting that 11 wealthy citizen had
offered to advance money without In
terest to meet the payments that so
many of the members, especially those
from the South Side, are making In
building and loan associations.
Secretary Coyne leported that while
in New York he had Interviews with
national ollicers of various labor or
ganizations, Including the garment
workers, and that they pledged them
selves to secure aid fiom their re
spective organizations tn help the car
SURFACE AGAIN SETTLING
Breaker at the Bull's Head Mine Is
Damaged to a Consider
An extensive cave-In occurred early
yesterday mnrnlin; at the colliery of
the Hull's Head t'oal i'Otiiiany. near the
corner of Providence road and Xurth
A squcezo In the lower vein, known 11s
the "rock" vein, was noticed on Sun
day, and though .stops were taken to
prevent lt spread, they were of no
avail and It continued all day Monday.
On Monday nlsht It cxuld lie s-ecn that
the surface In and around the bteukor
was slowly settling; Into the Diamond
or upper vein. It slowly settled all
nlsht and at fi o'clock yesterday morn
InK tin crash came, the surface sct
tllns about one foot all at once.
The boiler room was pilnclpally af
fected by the cave. The brick founda
tions on which tho boilers rest partly
caved in, thiowliur the latter all out nf
position. The walls of the boiler room
ate about a foot out of plumb and
threaten to fall any moment.
The track leading tip to the breaker
from the slope Is built on a pile of
culm and underneath It tlieie are many
deep holes, produced by the cave,
which will have to bo tilled in before
any curs can be taken up.
The hoisting: engine was thrown out
of place by the cave find there nre
numerous cracks In the walls ot the
engine room. Thero are deep craeks
for several bundled feet up the road
leading from Main avenue to the mino
and fear Is expressed that a large por
tion ot this may fall In. The ground Is
still settling, nnd every now and then
an ominous ciaekllng can be heard In
the breaker, which would eem to bode
ill for its safety.
Mine Superintendent Kvans, however,
Is of the opinion that all danger Is
past, and an effort is to be made at
once to clean up the debris and re-prop
the mine. A serious cave-in at tills
same mine a short lime ago succeeded
In depopulating the old red barn which
had been a residence for Italians for so
many years back. Tho red barn at
that time was split in two by the cave

OPINIONS OF COURT.
Judge Edwards Deals with tho Cases
of Fallon Against Costanzo and
Spruks Against Connellet nl.
Two opinions were handed down by
President Judge Kdwiirds yeslerdny,
one in the case of Mary Fallon
against Antonio Costango. and the
other In the cose ot David Spruks
against J. J.,. Connell ft Co.
The llrst was a suit ti secure tho
correcting and reforming the contract
for the purchase ot un Old Forge prop
erty. Mrs. Kallon owned throe ndjolnlnc
lots. Two of them were conveyed liy
deed in IRSti to her son, V. .T. Tallon.
In contracting to sell to Costango In
1S!i her attorney included a descrip
tion of all three lots to the contract.
Costango upon making: the Until pay
ment proceeded to take possession ot
all three lots. Mrs. Fallon then for
the llrst time, so she says, discovered
the ullesred mistake in the contract.
Costango held that It was no mistuke,
that It was nil three lots, and not only
one, that Mrs. Fallon bargained to sell
Judge Kdwnrds finds In favor ot Mrs.
Kallon. He savs It Is evident the ron
ment of the p.irtlc. That a mistake
tract dooi not express the true .agrce
was made in drafting the contract, he
says. Is Hear, precise and induliltlble.
The judge directs that each party
pay his or her own costs, and that the
other costs bo equally divided.
The case of Spruks against Connell
& Co. was an Injunction proceeding to
restrain the sale ot a brand of rlznrn
know)) as "(Junker Girl" on the ground
that It was an Imitation of tho brand
of cigars known as "Pennsylvania
Tho judge finds that the plaintiff's
case rests mainly nn this allegation
the Imitation nf the name. There Is
nothing, he says, In the boxes, labels,
device or picture, In color or form, con
nected with the "Quaker CSlii" cigars
showing an attempt to Imitate the
other brand. Indeed, the bill docs not
specifically allege this. When the two
brands were submitted for Inspection
the dissimilarity was Instantaneously
perceived. Therefore the only question
in the case Is the right ot the defeml
ntns to use the word "Quaker" In the
designation "Pennsylvania Quaker."
Further lie says: "There Is no evi
dence tondlnjr to prove that the de
fendants adopted the 'Quaker Girl' as
a designation of their brand of cigar
with the Intent to imitate tho plain
tiff's 'Pennsylvania Quaker;' nor can
I find tliut anybody has been misled
Into buying one cigar for another.
"The trade-mark 'Quaker Girl' doea
not Infringe upon the trade-mark
'Pennsylvania Quaker' because It Is not
calculated to deceive, mislead or con
fuse persons of ordinary Intelligence
using ctistoninrv caution,"
The bill Is dismissed at the costs
of the plaintiff.
