When the eonfeience opened this
morning It was confidently expected
that nn ngicemcnt would he reached
In n shoit time, but after a session
lasting fioni a.30 a. in. until H 30 p. in.
the meeting adjourned without arriv
ing at any conclusion so far as known,
to meet again tomorrow morning The
piotracted session Indicates that the
boa id Is not satisfied with piovlslonsof
the compium'so measures and un
less home modifications aie made 1 1
r.itltlcatlnn Is doubtful. The opening
of union mills to non-union woikmen
Is the principal point which It Is be
lieved the board hesitates to accept,
and the long distance telephone be
tween New York and Plttsbutg whs
woiked frequently today to get a
modllkatloii of this clause The woik
men hold that this would gle the mill
owneis full oppoitunlty of ciushlng
the union without a strike by finding
excuses to dlschaigo union men and
then fill their places with non-unionists.
Another lock of dissension Is
said to be the retention In their pres
ent jobs of men who woiked as "strike
bteakers" at tho various mills during
the stilke. It Is said that these men
have been piomlsed the piotectlon of
the manufactuiers In case of a settle
ment and that they will not concede
theli dismissal at the lequest of the
organization. The workois. It Is said,
nie willing to declare the mills now
working non-union, open mills, but
r.tienuously object to having all the
mills of the combine classified as open
mills. All Is, however, conjectuie, as
it Is Impossible to get any definite
s'ntcment from any of the patties m
teiested concerning the day's confer
ence. Members Will Not Talk.
When the board dispersed at fi.30,
every member was w a) laid by peislst
ent newspaper men, seeking Infot (na
tion, but eveiy question was answeiod
by the stereotyped phrase. "We can
pay nothing. Their l absolutely noth
ing to give to the public at this time."
It Is doubtful If the inemheis of the
Keneial executive boaid of the Amalga
mated association ever were moie un
communicative and ipseived than dur
ing and after the meeting of todaj.
The Impoitance of the matter In hand,
the fate of the strike and the welfare
of thousands of members of the oignn

rision. Tho full bnaul was piesent, with

Williams Offers Report.
Secretaiy Williams offered the 10
poit of the conference which ho bad
prepared and also the propositions that
had been made by the officials of the
United States Stppl enrpnt niton. The
members of the board listened with
close attention to all that was said,
and the discussion that followed wuw
carried nn In low tones This dlcus
slon continued until the afternoon hour
and then the meeting was adjourned
until 1.30 o'clock. At the afternoon
Fesslon the members wpip prompt in
getting together, but It was an hour
and twenty minutes after the time set
for the lesumptlon bpfoie tho membois
3f the boaid weie called to order. In
Ihe meantime messengeis weie sent
from the offices and had i etui nod. Tho
telephone was used considerably and It
wns stated that n portion of this time
was spent In vvoiklng the New York

Williams declined to talk nt all. As
plstant Kpcretary Tlgho was agreeably
happy and cheerful, hut said ho kiipw
nothing of Interest to the public. M.
M. Garland, who was piesent at tho
first session of the board, did not re
turn 'luting the aftprnnon, but as ho
left the ofllcps of tho organization he
peeniPd to be satisfied with tho discus
sion that ho had heard there. Whlln
Mr. Oarland has nil along maintained
that he had taken no active pait In tho
negotiations for a settlement of the
Ptrlke, ho Is believed to know much
more about the preliminary movements
that resulted In this conference than
ho wished understood. Mr. Oarland
declined to discuss the meeting and
would give no Idea of the piobahle re
sult of the confprentp. Under these
conditions the result of the meeting
bocamoa mattcrof purpconjecture dur
ing the afternoon. At 2.40 o'clock tho
tho meeting of tho board for the af
tirnoon began. All wpip pipsent who
had taken part during the earlier ses

land Soon after tho session began a
significant Incident took place. C.
W Hray, chief engineer of the Ameil
can Tin Plate company, and one of the
former conferees for the manufactur

Shaffer wns called from the room and
held n llvp-inlnulp conversation with
him In tho hall and then leturned to
tin- meeting, while Mr. Hi ay left the
building. Tho eonfeience between
these two men was appaicntly of a
filendly chin ucter and Indicated that
there was at least no strained feeling
Close Watch on Results.
Close watch was kept for results of
the meeting. Twice President Shaffer
mine to the hall and attacked an Ice
water tank, and then said ho could
not give any statement, pvpn as to how
long thp coufeionce would last,
"When such a piopositlon as this Is
befoiP lis," he said, "It is likely to he
discussed anil discussed again and It
might be a long time befoie It was
discussed to a finish."
He could make no piedlctlon as to
the time that would be required to
complete tho woik In h'ind. At the
dose of the day's session, tho nipmbeis
of the board skipped away one by one
to their lespectlve homes, until no one
was left at headquarteis, but President
Shaffer nnd Secretary Williams. They

The whole city unl'ed in plviiig Hex
such a loceptioM as will male nlni glad
to got bacK t- New Oilcans nftci the
Kaiatoga festivities. No Mardi Oras
ciovvd ever tiented King Hex more
chlvaliously than he was tieated today.
At a banquet given King Hex here liit

to duplicate the New Orleans Mardi

the north to the gorgeous and beautiful
way In which celebintlons weie con
ducted In sunny Louisiana.
For weeks past the loyal palace has
been the scene ol din and bustle In
preparation for King Hex's departure
for Saratoga. Two months ago his re
splendent lloats, golden chariots and
bejeweled piocesslonal robes weip sent
to the Now Yoik watering place, so
that today the King and his ictlnue
weie left alone to go.
The stmt was made at !i o'clock this

grand pageant filed out.
The piocpssloti was preceded by tho
Royal band of nlnet pieces, and a
company of the King's Own Knights,
In their gorgeous uniforms. King Hex
lode a snow-white stnlllon, with gold
trappings. Ainund him were one hun
dred of his courtiers, who will accom

tode coal black horses, with silver or
naments, and behind them came a bat
talion of the king's soldiers in the shape
of a hollow s(iiaro, containing tho car
i luges in which lode the ladles of tho
Kingly pal ty. Hex wore a golden
thieadod lobe, tin mounted by a flow

fashion of a bishop's cape. His head
was protected by his jewel ciown, and
In his hand he held the glltteilng scep

once owned by Julius Caesar and which
has over been the great magnet for all
eyes at tho Maidl Oias paiades, From
his saddle streamed scot ret of different
colored ilbbons, held by oung boys
nnd girls, dressed as nymphs, cuplds
and mermaids. The attendants woie
