Paterson. N. .1., Apiil 24. The opin
ion was cxprcFed this afternoon that
there would be an early settlement of
the dyer's Hit Ike. Tho operators of
the dyeing plain have icfused to con
sider the demands of thu men for 20
cents an hour for Icuiuers and a five
year contract but have shown 11 dis
position tu make concessions on lite
general wage scale, it was thought
that if the employers agreed to ad
vance wages that the strikers would
recede from their extieme position and
accept a compromise.
An extended suspension of the dye
ing trade would seriously nffecl all
other branches of the silk Industry
and It was said that there had been
pressure from Interests not affected by
the piesent strike for a settlement.
The Mississippi Senator Mixed
Up with a Trolley

Washington, April 24. Senator H. D.
Money, of Mississippi, had an alterca
tion with a conductor on a street car
today. The senator received two se
vere blows from tho conductor, and
tho conductor was cut severely on the
right hand by the senator's knife.
As Senator Money relates tho circum
stances, he was proceeding from his
home to the Ilalllmorc and Ohio Hall
road station to take the 9 o'clock train
for Hnltlmore. where he goes frequent
ly for treatment by nu occnllst. Ho
had taken a car on the Fourteenth
street branch of the Capital Traction
company line, and bad chanced to
board a car which stops at the Peace
Monument, half a dozen hlocks short
of his destination. Ho had fallfd to
notice; tho circumstance until the car
began to turn around the monument.
The cai bound for tho station was im
mediately behind the ear on which be
was seated. The senator says that ho
had only three or four minutes in
which lo catch his train. After ho
learned that ho was on the wrong car
he called to the conductor for a trans
fer ticket to the car bound for the
station. He does nol recall what the
conductor said Jn reply, but failing to
receive the ticket, and recognizing that
he bad no time to lose, , he jumped
from the car ho was on and boarded
When tho conductor of that car ap
proached him nnil asked for his ticket,
the senator said that ho had nol had
time to obtain a. transfer, and reminded
the conductor that he had been a wit
ness lo the circumstance of bis change
from one car to the other. The con
ductor icplicd thnt the senator would
either have to produce a ticket or pay
his fare, whereupon the senator told
him that, having paid one fare and
being entitled to a transfer, which he
had asked for, hut had not received, he
would not pay another. Thereupon the
conductor told him that if he would
not pay bis fare be would put him off
the car and immediately proceeded to
carry his threat Into execution.
The senator resisted by grasping an
upright post and engaged in a struggle
with the conductor, who was nol mak
ing much headway, when a passenger,
who had been sitting next to Senator
Money, volunteered to assist the con
ductor, Uy their combined strength
they contrived to break the senator's
hold upon tho post and to force him
from the ear.
The senator says thnt when they first
undertook to eject him tho car was In
full motion, and he feels that If they
had succeeded at that time ho would
Inevitably have been badly hint. Tho
conductor nnd his assistant did not,
however, succeed in their design until
the car stopped at the next crossing to
permit other passengers to alight, Ho
says that both the conductor nnd the
passenger were abusive in their lan
guage, and that after ho had readied
the street tho conductor hit him a se
vere blow over tho heart with his
clenched fist. The blow, the senator
says, was painful, and in order to pro
tect himself bo took a small penknife
from his pocket and opened It, Thnt
weapon the conductor grasped and in
doing so cut his hand so that It bled
The senator was not badly hurt, but
his trip to naltlmore wan prevented,
He, however, proceeded with his cus
tomary duties about tho capltol during
tho day as if nothinv had occurred,
The name of tho streot car conductor
with whom Senator Money had trouble

He Causes Bitter Debate in
the British House of
By i:.iluive Wire from Tlie Aioclted Pref.
London, April 21. The forcible de
tention In South Africa of Albert Cnrt
wrlght, who, while editor of tho South
African News charged Lord Kitchener,
prior to the engagement with (Jenernt
De Wet, with ordering bis ofllcers to
shoot all prisoners, formed the subject
of a heated debate in the house of
commons this evening.
John Morley, Liberal, moved the ad
journment of tho house, the success of
which proposition would practically
amount to a vote of censure on tho
government In general, and on Lord
Kitchener and Lord Mllner- In particu
lar. Mr. Morley ("poln ted out that Mr.
Cartwrlght, who find served a. year's
imprisonment for libel, now desired to
come to England and that the deten
tion was illegal, unconstitutional and
tyrannical. Ho added that the explan
ation of Lord Stanley, the financial
secretary of the war office, who served
in the South Aft lean war as chief
press censor, that tho government did
not think it desirable to Increase the
number of nntl-Hrltlsh propagandists
in this country, was the most outrage
ous heard in the houso since Simon
De Mont fort invented parliament.
The secretary of state for war, Mr.'
Brodcrlck in the course of a reply,
raised a storm by saying thai, al
though Mr. Cartwrlght bad served his
legal sentence, the question of his lib
eration whs still sub-justice. This
brought forth a vehement protest from
Sir William Vernon Hnrcourt, Liberal,
who declared that such a proposition
was senndulous and contrary to the
elementary principles of freedom.
Winston Spencer Churchill. Conserv
ative, also delivered a few caustic sen
tences, saying he hoped tho house
would force tho government to with
draw within the limits of the law and
observe the constitution.
Mr. Balfour, the government leader,
came to the support of the sorely hnr
rassed war secretary and contended
that the government was justified In
detaining even a British subject If It
thought his wanderings were calculated
to Injure the interests-of South Africn,
Those voting for the adjournment would
be condemning Lord Kitchener nnd
Lord Mllner. In whose keeping, at this
moment, rested their hopes of peace.
James Bryce, Liberal, and Sir Hobert
Held, Liberal, twitted the ministers for
again interposing Lord Kitchener as a
buffer between the government and the
They both scathingly denounced the
present action of the government as a
gross abuse of power.
The spirit of revolt spread to the gov
ernment benches. Ian Malcolm, Con
servallve, who Is saltl to have been
heretofore an unswerving supporter of
the government, warmly lepudlated
Mr. Balfour's argument that those
voting for the adjournment would be
showing themselves careless of British
honor. After such an Incident, he no
longer felt sure the members of the
government could say they had clean
hands in this regard. War or pence
would not be facilitated by such vio
lations of the liberty of the subject.
Other supporters of the government
followed In the same strain, oven Ivor
Chut chill Ciiiest, eldest sou oe Lord
Wlinborle. a Conservative niid a cousin
of the Duke of Marlborough, urging the
government to realize that Its position
wan untenable mid lo make some con
cession. The house then divided, and the
motion for adjournment wns defeated
by 25fl to 1S2 voles.

Philadelphia, April 21. Ban Johnson,
president of the American Rac Ball
league, arrived here today. During the
afternoon he held n conference with
President Shibe", of' tlie local American
league club and counsel for the organ
ization. In an interview. President
"1 do not expect to see u permanent
Injunction Issued against Jaijoie. The
American league will not Interfere ns a
body in the light for players. Kach club
will defend Its own rights. As to Jho
outcome of this legal sejunbble, l do not
see any cause for worry. I anticipate
a complete and sweeping victory for
tho American league. It does not follow
that because the Philadelphia court bus
seen fit to Issue a temporary Injunction
that the ruling will be made perma
nent. On the contrary, after the situ
ation has been fully reviewed, I am
satisfied that Lajole, Fraser and Bern
hard and the other former National
league plnyeis will be seen with the
American league teams, to which they
are now attached by legal contract."
President Shibe said:
"We shall light this case to a finish
and shall oppose to the last ditch any
attempt to restrain Lajole from play
ing for us this season."
President Johnson left this evening
for Washington. He expressed himself
as fully salislled with the legal situ
ation from an American league view
point. Mr. Johnson will return here on
Sunday evening, and will bo present in
court on Monday to hear the argument
on the motion of tho American league
lawyers to dissolve the injunction
Tho attorneys for Lajole this after
