At n Meotlng In Carpcnteis' Hall tho
Men Decided to Give Up the Strug
gle Tho Company Has Made. No
Concessions Nor Has It Agreed to
Take Back Any Men Buffalo,
Kingston nnd Hoboken Stilkers
Will Abide by the Decision Ar
rived nt.
Tho protracted strike ot the Lacka
wanna nn builders was declined off
last night nt a special meeting of the
sttlkeis held In Cm pouter's hall on
Wyoming avenue.
The meeting was i ailed as the ie-
stilt of a (onfetence held on Tticsdn)
between Muster Car llullder Canlleld
and Piesldent McAndiew, of the car
builders' union. At this eonfeienco Mr.
Ciuilleld announced hat the company
was as lit m as ever In lis position nnd
would make no concessions whatever,
lie told Piesldent McAndiew that ho
could not promise to take the sttlkeis
back If the sttlke was declined off,
but that those who might deslie to
come back could sign the icgulatlon
application blanks, which would be
caiofully considered by the company.
I he sentiment mining the men in
favor of having the stilke declnred oft
became so strong that President Mc
Andiew i tilled last night's special
meeting foi the put pose of consldpilng
thp (luesllon
Tpegialii" wcie sent on to the piesl
dents nf ilir cat bulldeis' unions at
Huff alo, Kingston and Hoboken, whero
stilkes have been In progress simul
taneously with the local one, and re
plies weie leielved yesteiilay announc
ing that the stilkeis at each of these
plaies would abide by the decision
leached at last night's meeting.
Piesldent .McAndiew made a bilof
address at the meeting setting forth
the statements made by Mr. Canlleld.
The motion to dPclatP the stiike oft
was almost unanimously adopted, theio
being only a few who faxoied fighting
It out.
It seems tu be the geueial belief that
only n part of the men will sign appli
cations to be leinstated to their old
positions. A number who weie gath
eied in the hall last night after the
meeting insisted most foielbly that un
der no consideration whatever would
Uiey ngiec to sign an application.
Kxcciitlve Committeeman Co.vne, In n
lonveisation with a Ti Ibune man In
leg.nd to the cleclailng olf of the stiike,
"The ptliulpa leason for the calling
off of the stiike was in order that the
stilkeis might t-ccuic employment
fiom some of the other laige compan
ies in and about the city. Veiy tew
will, In my opinion, letuin to vvnik for
the Lackawanna. Kver since the stiike
began the sttlkeis have found It Impossible-
to get wotk from anv other
lallioad or manufaetuiing com
pany "The officials of these companies, as
soon as they learned that a man was
a knwanna strike, had no further
use for him and would not hlie him
under nny consideration. We believe
that the giving up of the stiike will
enable these men to secuie places, and
that Is why it was dec lined off."
The local car bulldeis went out on
strike on May 4 In .synipathv with thp
ar buildeis at Dover, who stiuik two
davs befoie bei ause t lie company ic
fuied to iidnstnte a icitnin Iran who
was dlschai god. They had been out
but a few dan when they decided to
demand a nlnt-hour da, and with
this as n slogan the c.n bulldeis at
Huffalo, Hoboken and Kingston went
out and have been out since.
The number of men in this city who
oilglnally stiuck was TIL', and the
stilkers claim that only 2'.0 of this
number have since letuined to weak.
The company ofllelnN, on the other
hand, maintain that neaily all of the
stilkeis aie back at their old jobs.
The approximate number of men who
have been out on stiike In the other
cltiecs mentioned above Is as follows:
Hutfalo, 4."i, Kingston, I.'.-.; Hoboken,
The Dover car bulldeis, who weie
the original stilkeis, did not decide to
abide by the decision of last night's
meeting nnd their piesldent, C. A. Nel
son, who atended tho meeting, said
that ho wasn't at all sine that they
favored giving up the snuggle. A spt'

Caso of City of Seranton Agninst E.
B. Sturges May Be Taken to a
Higher Court.
Theip Is a disposition about city hall
fo take an appeal fiom tho decision of
the local couit In the eap of the City
of Seranton ngulnst 11. H. Sturges, and
City Solicitor (leoige M. Watson sa
if councils ask hi advice he will coun
sel an appeal.
The cao Is one in which Mr. Stuiges
Is sppklng to p'lnbllsh a contention
that legally lie need not pay for the
paving on N'tth Washington avenue
in front ot properties he owns Indi
vidually nnd oil pi held In common
with othPip. He claims the paving wns
not properly clone, nnd that the clause
In the contract relating to rcpait was
wholly Ignored by the paving company
and also by council, when It came to
releasing the company' bond.
When the case came to tilnl the de -fense
was made that the statute of
limitations hatred collection; that the
city was obliged to how the ceitaln
fixed amount Mr. Stuigps was owing,
and that the contract was Invalid be
cause It sought to charge the prop
erties with a gieater buiden thnn the
statute nllcnvs, in that It calls for pav
ing and keeping the paving in icpalr,
when the law .tlpulatcs- that the cot
of oilglnal construction is as much n,s
can be assessed against abutting prop
erty holdeis.
The city held that the statute of
limitations did not Inteipose a bar to
collection because some paments weie
made by the defendant within the six
ear period,
As to the ( 1 1 obligation to prove a
fixed and ceitalu amount owing from
Mr. Stuiges, the city held It did not
have to do this, that all that was nce
csMiiy was to show the amount n
sesed. Tho burden of showing that
the debt was less than the amount as
sessed rested with the defense, tho city
contended, just as In the case of a suit
on a Judgment note, wheie the plain
tiff can rest after presenting the note
and the defen.'e lo called to show what
payments, If any, were made.
The city admits that nn abutting
propei ty can not be taxed with nn
thlng mnie thnn the cost of the niig
nnl contiuctlnn, but contends that the
contract 1 not Invalidated bj the fact
that lepalis weie also conttai ted foi,
because It Is possible to prove liter
ally what the icp.ilis weie woith and
by siibtiactlng this from the whole
amount atsc.".od1 the cost of the oilg
lnal construction can be a-iPitalncd
Attorney C Comeg.vs, who was as.
soi lated with the plaintiff as represt n
tative of ceitaln of the holders of the
paving bond, I likewise dhposed to
inrry the (ase to an appellate couit.
The probabilities arc that it will bo

that, in Mechanical Knglneerlng
