Question of the Guilt of the Men
Is to Be Determined by n Commit
tee of Three, but in tho Meantime
the Men Want the Discharged
Employes Put Back to Work.
Unless General Manager Sllllmnn, of
tho Scranton Railway company toda
meets certain demands made upon him
by the street railway employee's union,
a general strike will go Into effect to
morrow that will tie up the street
railway service not only of this city
but of C.trhomhilt' also.
The decision to strike wan made nt
a meeting of the union which began nt
2 o'clock yesterday morning nnd which
lasted until nearly C o'clock. Tho vote
declaring n strike for tomorrow morn
ing, unless certnln demnnds are grant
ed today, was unanimous.
The following Htntemetit given out
yesterday from tho olTlco of tho com
pany explains In detail the negotia
tions which were carried on between
tho executive committee anil General
Mannger Silllman prior to yesterday
"On Monday, September 23, two con
ductors on tho Carbondale division
wore discharged, one for falling to
collect nnd register the faros ou his
car and the other for Issuing a great
er number ot transfers thnn the num
ber of passengers on bis car.
"On Wednesday, tho executive com
mittee of the organization of conduc
tors and motormen caled on Mr. Silll
man and demanded that proof of tho
charges against the men be furnished
to the committee. Mr. Sllllmnn de
clined lo do this on the ground that It
would not only be unfair to his sources
of Information, but that It would make
this source of Information valueless In
tho future, but he offered to show
proof of the charges against the men
to a third disinterested part' to be
agreed upon nnd to abide by the de
cision nf that party as to whether the
facts as alleged by him were sustained
bj- reasonable proof.
"This the committee declined to do
but agreed to a similar proceeding
In which there should be three parties,
one to bo named by the commlt'ee, one
to be named by Mr. Silllman, and a
third to bo named bs tho two so chos
en, nnd their decision to be binding.
In case the decision wns favorable to
the case of the men, tho Railway com
pnny wns to pay the men the amount
of money that they would have mado
while on their runs from the dnte of
their discharge. Tho committee there
upon named their man, but stated that
ho was out of the city at that time nnd
the matter would not be attended to
until after his return ou Saturday
"On Friday morning tho committee
came to Mr. Sllllmnn's olllce nnd re
pudiated tho ngreemont which they
hnd made and notified him that the or
ganization Instructed them to tell that
the men must bo reinstated by Satur
day night or olso satisfactory proof
of the guilt of the discharged men musu
be shown to tho committee. Mr. Silll
man Informed the committee that ho
would not agree to either of these
DECIDED TO STIIIKE.
Tho men decided yesterday morning
thnt they would strike tomorrow
morning unless General Mannger Sil
llman agrees to ic-lnstate the dls
chatged conductors nt once and miIi
mit tho charges preferred against itutn
to a board of nrbltraloru, one to bo
chosen by tho union, one by tli- iom
pany and the third to be selected by
thee two; the conductors to be kept
In their position until tho board finally
decides. The men further demand that
at tho hearings before the board, both
sides be represented.
One ot tho members of the executive
commltte was shown tho statement
given out by the company last night
and admitted that it was substantially
correct, except so far as the alleged
chargfH against tho men are pointed
out. He volunteered a statement out
lining tho position of tho men In tho
"Tho statement," Fald he, "Is sub
stantially correct, nnd nlvo.q .i fair irinn
of the negotiations carried on between
.uiiiiager ftiiiunan nnd tho committee.
AVo submitted the plan of arbitration
which was finally agreed upon nnd
wn Htlll stand by that plan,
"During the last conference that we
had with Mr. .Slllman prior to the
meeting held on Friday morning last
be told us that the man whom the
conipany wanted to net ns arbitrator
would not be in the city until this com
ing Wednesday. He would not agree
to re-lnstato the dlsrhnrrrpi! tnon In tv,
meantime, but Insisted that they be
Kepi out or work until the arbitration
board arrived nt a llnal decision.
"When we reported this to tho men
at Friday morning's meeting, they de
cided to instruct us to nsk Mr. Sllll
mnn to either re-lnstnte tho men or
submit his proofs of their guilt to us
before Saturday night. Ho told us on
Friday that he would give uh nn nn
swer on Saturday but we couldn't find
him on Saturday nt nil nnd were told
at the ofllce that he was out of town.

E. Q. Coursen
"When thCRc facts were brought to
the nttcntlon of the men yesterdny
morning they felt highly Incensed nnd
declared a strlko for tomorrow morn
ing unless Mr. Sllllmnn accedes to
their demands before then.
"Wo are asking nothing that Is not
reasonable. The men agreed unani
mously to abldo by the decision of tbl
board of arbitration but they think
It no more thnn right that the accused
men be kept nt their work until a final
conclusion Is reached. We ure simply
acting on the old axiom that a man Is
innocent until he Is proven guilty.
"These men tiro clamoring to have
tho evidence against them mndo pub
lic nnd are very desirous of having
their case tested In court. They main
tain that they are absolutely Innocent
nnd the men nro Inclined to believe
them, though perfectly srllllng to nc
cept them ns guilty if the proposed
board of arbitration should find them
"Not very many weeks ngo two con
ductors were shnlllarly accused nnd
Were dlsehatgod. The matter wns con
sidered by the executive committee
and during a conference with the gen
eral manager, the latter offered to re
lnstnte the men If they would submit
to arrest nnd a erimlnnl prosecution.
This proposition was agreeable to tho
committee, but tho accused men
wouldn't agree to It nnd they ipilt tho
union. Those, men wore undoubtedly
THEV WERE WILLING.
"These men nre willing to bo nrresl
ed. but tho general manager won't
ngreo to nrrest them. We asked him If
the offer he made In the case of the
other men still held good, nnd ho re
plied that It did not, but gave no rea
son. AVo are Inclined to believe that
this shows that there is not much
ngninst the two men.
"If wo go out on strike tomorrow
morning, It will be n fight to the finish.
It won't bo simply an Insistence that
these men bo reinstated, If wo onco
jult work. It will bo a demand for a
thorough understanding with the com
pany ofllclnls na to the ngreemont
which wns signed last winter.
"If wo go out ou strike the company
will claim that we are breaking that
agreement. AVe claim thut theie Isn't
a clause In tho agreement that hasn't
already been broken by the company
itself. If wo wanted to go into detail
we could point out a hundred Instances
In which this agreement has been
"Tho company officials pledged them
selves to keep no extra men on duty at
the main ofllce nfter 6 p. m. They are
keeping them on duty every night until
3 p. m despite the fact that their at
tention has been called to this viola
tion tlmo and time again.
"The company officials pledged them
selves to discriminate against no mem
ber of the union who might be en
gaged on committee work. Only this
past week Mr. Shea, who Is the presi
dent and a member of tho executive
committee, wns refused his regular car
one day because he bod absented him
self ou committee work the dns' before.
TAKING CARS TO HARN.
"Tho company olliclals pledged them
selves to allow the men credit for the
time consumed In taking the tars to
tho barn nt night. This Is not being
done. The Inst run on most runs Is
shortened fifteen minutes, nnd thnt
tlmo Is counted ns the tlmo for the
running to the barn.
"The company otllclnls pledged them
selves to keep no non-union mnn nt
work for a period longer than thirty
days before be Joined tho union. Only
a few weeks ago a non-union man was
kept on for several weeks over the
time limit, despite tho complaint nnd
vigorous objection of the executive
committee. It Is useless to go into nny
further detnlls. There Isn't a clause in
tho ngreement thnt bnsn't been vio
lated, as I said before, nnd some of the
clauses are being violated every das.
"Tho now men who nro being hired
nro given tho best runs, from a finan
cial standpoint, nnd tho runs that pan
out the lowest wages nre in many In
stances being given to the older hands.
There is no question but that this is
being done to fow dissension In the
ranks of the men.
"We hope that tho whole affair will
bo amicably adjusted tomorrow, but If
It Isn't, we mnkc a fight to the finish.
The men nro Just as enthusiastic and
just as determined ns they were when
they struck before, nnd wo nro hope
ful of winning out In Just nbotit ns
short order. If we aro forced into a
Tho executive committee hnd a con
ference with General Manager Silllman
yesterday afternoon, but, according to
a statement given out by the commit
tee last night, It resulted In prnctlcnlly
nothing. Mr. Sllllmnn said that he was
not ready to give a definite nnswer to
the proposition submitted to him by
tho committee, nnd did not say
whether he would make reply today
The men will meet tomorrow morning
nt 2.S0 o'clock, according to present
plans, nnd will then receive from the
committee nn official announcement of
Mr. Sllllmnn's answer. If he agrees to
reinstate the men nnd submit tho ques
tion to nrbltrntlon, thero will be no
strike, but If ho refuses the demands
or nsks for more time, tho men will
depart for their several homes nnd
leave the cars to rest In tho barns.

Guaranty and Trust Company.
Promotion of Lieutenant Frank
Llttell Police Captain Williams,
A man possessed of rare tact and dis
cretion, of refined nsd courteous ad
dress nnd ono who is well Informed in
nil matters municipal Is required to fill
the responsible position of prlvnto sec
retary to the bead of the city govern
ment of a lnrge city like Scranton, and
such a man Is Murk K. Edgar, private
secretary to City Recorder W. L. Con
nell. It Is questionable if any chief ex
ecutive of this city has ever had such
an altogether capable private secretary
as Mr. Edgar. During Recorder Con
nell'g term as mayor, some years ago,
Mr. Edgar ncted as his private secre
tar', ntul when the recorder retired
Into prlvnto life he took Air. Edgar svlth
him to nsslst him in the management
of his large business interests.
In tho past few years Mr. Edgar so
thoroughly familiarized himself svlth
the recorder's business nffatrs that his
services became almost invaluable, nnd
ho svns ngnln the only man for tho
place of private secretary when the re
corder became chief executive of the
city n few months ngo. He Is a born
diplomat, nnd handles the hundreds of
callers In the recorder's olllce with a
tnct and a cleverness thnt is fascinat
ing to tho onlooker. Ho Is In the re
corder's confidence nnd knows Just
what his Ideas und views on certain
matters are, nnd Is thus able to deal
with visitors most lntelllgentl. When
the recortler Is out of town, Mr. Ed
gar's advice Is frequently sought by
eounciltnen nnd city olliclals. This
phows the confidence nnd high esteem
In which he Is held, perhaps moro
plninly than might else.
Youth nnd progresslveness form a
combination that has nchleved great
results. Among the many young men
in this city whose success Is clue to
theso two excellent qualities, a dis
tinctly sclntlllnnt example, Is Ralph S.
Hull. Not yet SO years of age, Mr. Hull
Is secretary nnd trust olllcer of tha
Title Guarnnty nnd Trust company, a
responsible position, which has been
bestowed upon him In recognition of
his ability to conduct successfully the
business connected therewith.
Cpon graduating from Yale, five
years ago, Mr. Hull entered ns a law
student with AVillard, AVnrren &
knapp. Soon nfter ho became a stu
dent nt tho Columbia Law university,
of New York. His course completed
there, bo wns associated for a year
with a prominent law firm In New York
cits. Thero he mastered all the details
of tho business of title guaranty nnd
trust compnnles. Mr. Hull saw the pos
sibility of such a company In this city.
and came here about a year ago to or
ganize one. He succeeded in forming
a surety compati-, which has nlrendy
met success, and tinder the guiding
hand of the energetic Mr. Hull Its sta
bility Is assured.
Ono of the j-oungest members of tho
Lackawanna bnr who Is forging rapidly
to the front ranks ot his profession,
without any unnecessary show of clien
tele, Is Attorney Palmer L. AVIIIIams,
"the only lawyer In Patagonia," ns
some ono said of him by reason of his
residing In the Fifteenth wnrd, which
wns long ago known by that name.
Mr. Williams Is a veteran of the Spanish-American
war, a prominent mem
