AWARD OP THE BOARD OF
Dispute Between the Scranton Rail
way Company and tho Union Em
ployes Is Finally Settled Com
pany Must Give the ex-Strlkcrs
Prcccdenco Ovor the Imports or
Pay tho Former What They Would
Earn if Glvcntho Imports' Places
on Regular Runs.
When tho union Htrcct car men de
livered to General Malinger Sllllmnn of
tho Scranton Railway company, a
grievance with a demand for redress
that was equivalent to an ultimatum,
The Tribune made demand In tho name
ot tho most largely Interested party
the general' public, that the question
at issue he arbitrated.
A sentiment was aroused In favor of
arbitration which neither side could
well stand out against, nnd, In a very
brief conference between representa
tives of tho company nnd the men, ar
bitration was agreed to.
Tho arbitration has taken place, a
settlement of tho dispute has been
reached and tho community Is saved
the nnnoyuncc and other ills of anoth
er street car strike.
Tho result of tho arbitration In which
Tho Tribune and the community is
primarily Interested, tho averting of a
strike, has been achieved. How the
company and men fared Is Interesting,
but, comparatively speaking, It Is In
teresting only In an "also" sense.
The strike Is averted that's tho main
Sept. 30, 1001, the 307 employes of the
company went' on strike. April 7, 1002,
they returned to work under a written
working agreement. While the strike
was on, tho company recruited nearly
one hundred men from various places
to work Us cars. A few of this one
hundred were ex-sti lkers.
In the agreement which formed the
basis of settlement of the strike was a
clause, No. 6, which read in effect that
when the number of men In the com
pany's employ should be reduced to
307 the number employed when tho
strike began the company would re
arrange the runs and give preference
to the men according to "length of ser
vice." OLD CONDITIONS OBTAIN.
Juno 20, last, the number of men In
the employ of the company was re
duced to 307. The returned strikers
made demand for a re-arrangement of
the runs which would give the old men
the regular runs and put the new men
on the "waiting list." Tho company
said "all right," but when It came to
selecting men according to seniority,
the company placed all the ex-strlkera
behind the men who had been imported
during the strike, or old employes who
had returned to work before the strike
was ended. In support of this action,
the company contended that "length of
service" meant length of continuous
or uninterrupted service, and that the
ex-strikers' "length of service" should
bo measured from April 7, 1902, the day
the strike ended and they returned to
the company's employ.
This would leave forty-five union
men on the waiting list, and give regu
lar runs to all the non-union men.
The union didn't propose to stai.d for
this and protested that tho men who
represented the company In tho settle
ment of the strike gave them to under
stand that "length of service" meant
that the time a man served before tho
strike was to be taken into the com
putation, or, in other words, that the
ex-strlkers were to bo preferred to tho
General Manager Sllllman Insisted
that this could not have been tho un
derstanding of the clause in question,
as he had declaied all along that come
what might the company would never
agree to anything that would disturb
tho men who served the company In
its due extremity and so forth.
The ex-strikers made answer that It
was true Jlr. Sllllman held to this
declaration light along during tho ne
gotiations for settlement, but finally
deserted this position and agreed to
give- the old employes their old standing
atter old conditions had been re-established.
In support of this contention
the men pointed to the fact that the
ex-strikers, came under the high rat
ing as to wages while the Imports were
classed us llrst year men, at 17 cents
an hour, and also that there was a
clause In tho contract reading "There
shall be no discrimination on account
of tho fatrlke."
Ater hearing evidence for two days
from each side the arbitrators, yester
day afternoon made tho following
Tho undersigned board of arbltratois,

It Is my Intention to liavo him go on with his training.

Mr. J. Alfred Pennington.
Dear Sir: I regard tho "Faclten System" ns tho most thorough and Intelli
gent, that I have yet scon. One who plays equally well In all keys cannot fall
to progress rapidly In tho moio advanced work, and I commend it, with much

C. All men now on "wnltlng list," who
woro on "waiting list" prior to Septem
ber 30th, 1901, shall remain on "waiting
list" until regular runs can bo provided
for them, but with the understanding that
they aro cither to bo provided with regu
lar runs promptly on the ending of tho
present coal stilkc, or, It regular runs
cannot then bo provided for them, the
company at that tlmo shntl commenco
to pay each of these men on tho "wait
ing list," In ndditlon to what ho Is then
earning,, an amount equal to tho differ
ence between what ho Is then earning
and the rate he would receive for a regu
lar run, until such tlmo as a regular run
Is provided for him.

aro to bo called for performance of extra
work in regular rotation.
Wm. II. Taylor, John Mitchell, Wm.
Corlcss, W. F. Hallstoad, M. J.lloban.
WHAT IT MEANS.
Tho award Is a decision in favor of
the men. It practically says:
1. The cx-strlkcrs shall have pre
cedence In tho matter of regular runs.
2. If the company wnnts to keep
faith with tho Imports, by not tuk
ins them off the regular runs, it will
have to p.iy tho forty-live cx-strlkprs
now on the waiting list, the same wnges
as they would earn If they had regular
3. Men on the "waiting list," who
were on the "waiting list" before the
strike, will have to be content with tho
"waiting list" until business picks up
after tho ending of the miner's strike.
The men would have been-bettor satis
fied if the arbitrators had ruled that
the "Imports" should nt once go on
the "watting list." They don't like
the Idea of seeing these Imports on
regular runs while union men aic re
legated to the waiting list, even though
these relegated men aro making as
good wages as those who work regular
ly. The company believes the arbitrators
went too far, in prescribing what
should and what should not bo done,
when they were only called upon, to
Interpret the meaning of a clause.
Both sides, however, agreed to abide
by the decision of the arbitrators, and
the arbitrators have decided.
President Mitchell of the Mine work
ers when asked which side tho decision
favored said ,"If is not a victory for
either side. It's a victory 'for arbitra
'tlon: for business methods In settling
disputes between capital and labor.
SCOTT A COOL ONE.
Expressed Regret That His Victim
Was Not Dead Troubled Only
About His Dress.
For cr-jl effrontery and iron, nerve,
Frank Scott, the colored man from
Paterson, N. J who was arrested here,
Monday night, charged with murder
ously assaulting Newton Beckett, comes
pretty near to being the limit.
Although the chances aro almost cer
tain that when he Is taken back to
Paterson he will be arraigned In the
Jersey courts for murder, ho Is not in
the least afraid. The only thing which
worried him yesterday was a Beau-Brummel-llko
aversion to leaving his
cell, before he had donned another suit
He was arraigned before Judge H. M.
Edwards, and committed to tho custody
of Sheriff 'Schadt, pending the arrival
of requisition papers fiom Paterson.
Detective John 11. Taylor, of Paterson,
and John Jackson an eye-witness of
the shooting affray, were present, and
The latter, does not deny his guilt.
He shot Beckett ns the result of a quar
rel over a disreputable woman, and,
nccotdllig to the Pateisou accounts,
did so In a very cold-blooded manner.
He calmly enteied his house and secur
ing a revolver, came back and shot
Beckett thieo times through the head.
Beckett wasn't lacking In nervo either,
for after being shot, he turned, entered
his own house, climbed two (lights ot
steps, and only fell after ho had en
tered his own room. His recovery Is
dispalicd of. Ono shot btruck him in
the moulh, and another enteied his

all right, ain't he, boss."
"No, not yet," ho answered. "You
dont say so! Well, If that ain't
too bad," Scott commented with a re
gretful nod of his heud. "Say, boss"
he continued "I nln't no bad man, Dat's

Refusal of City Ponds Is a
Hatter for Legislation.
Action on tho refusal of Hayes &

Issue of city bonds, which was award

ference, a good part of yestorday and
Monday, with City Solicitor George M.
Watson, and tho heads of the city de

As the Ohio firm has been allowed
ample time to definitely decide upon its
coin so -of action, and notify tho city
whether or not It will take the bonds,
which were formally tendered them,
two weeks ngo, It seems to the muni
cipal authorities that It is now time for
the city to take the initiative, in In
stituting vigorous stops.
"There are no new developments in
the matter," Recorder Connell remark
ed yesterday to a Tribune man. "It will
now bo given over to councils for fur
ther action." There Is a possibility
that a communication will be submit
ted by tho recorder, touching upon
Hayes & Sons' refusal, at tho meeting
of councils tomonow night. It is the
regular meeting of select, and a special
meeting of common will be hold. Ac
tion can be taken on it in one of the
branches, and the communication can
then immediately go over to the other
The recoider will probably, recom
mend that the bonds be sold on Hayes

entailed the city shall proceed to make
evpn by retaining tho $3,000 forfeit post

of It as may be necessary to make up
RUMORS CAUSED TROUBLE.
Members of Thirteenth Reported at
Tho fake rumors circulated about the
Thirteenth regiment had been ordered to

where a largo number of the soldier

Nearly all the members of Company
K and D were present, as well as a
fairly largo representation from the
other commands. Second Lieutenant
John M. Edwaids, of Company K, was
called up by 'phone yesterday afternoon
by some practical Joker, Impersonating
an officer of the regiment, who inform

MISTAKEN FOR ADMIRAL IN
THIS CITY YESTERDAY.
Experienced All Sorts of Trouble
Hero and in Wllkes-Barro Owing
to tho Striking Resemblance He
Dears to tho Hero of Manila Mrs.
Roso Was Also Mistaken for the
Admiral's Wife Thoy Aro Guosts
at Clairmout, Mt. Pocono.
Tho citizens' committee appointed to
Walt on Admiral Dewey nt Mt. Pocono
nnd Invito him to enjoy tho hospltnllty
of Scranton, will have a 'double mission
to perform, after the experiences of
Dewey's double, who visited this city
First of nil It will bo necessary for
them to convince themselves that the
admiral was not In Scranton yester
day, and that the gentleman who was
here Is not the famous hero of Manila,
but -In reality tho Rev. Frank B. Rose,
chaplain, U. S. N., retired, with the
rank of captain, whom tho local repre
sentatives of tho press were privileged
The experiences of Rev. nnd Mrs.
Roso yesterday, according to their own
story, would make interesting reading
were It all written nnd printed.
Thoy are guests at tho Clalrmont cot
tago at Mt. Pocono. Admiral nnd Mrs.
Dewey are at tho Montenesca, Mt. Po
cono. Tho former left there yesterday
morning to enjoy a trolley rldo through
tho far-famed Wyoming valley.
Tho remarkable resemblance Rev.
Roso bears to Admiral Dewey at once
plunged them into all sorts of annoy
ing circumstances. As soon as they
boarded tho train tho word was passed
among tho passengers that Mr. and
Mrs, Dewey were on board, and during
the journey to Scranton, a number ot
people wanted to shake the hand of-the
hero of Manila.
Tho railroad employes aided In carry
ing out tho joke by telegraphing ahead
that tho distinguished seaman and his
wife were enrouto to Scranton nnd at
a number of stations along the line
small crowds congregated to got a
glimpse of them. According to Mr.
Rose's own story, they enjoyed the
experience vory much at first, and he
was Inclined to keep up the deception
during his visit, but Mrs. Rose objected
nnd insisted that he disclose his Iden
tity. THOUGHT HE WAS JOKING.
This he tried to do, on the train
coming to Scranton, but It seemed the
people they encountered would not lis
ten to such a statement nnd Insisted he
was the admiral, notwithstanding his
protestations. When tho train reach
ed Scranton a largo crowd congregated
on tho station platform and gave tho
couple a hearty welcome.
As quickly as possible they boarded
a Duryca car at the corner of Franklin
nnd Lackawanna avenues and their
presence on tho cars was soon com
municated to tho passengers, who star
ed at them continually during the trip
down the valley. Nothing of Incident
occurred until tho visitors boarded an
other car at Duryca, and there they
were subjected to another such ex
perience as they encountered upon their
ai rival In Scranton.
The advance agents seemed to have
notified everybody in Plttston nnd
Wllkes-Barre of their coming, nnd
when they passed through these towns
the people greeted them in largo num
bers, hailing them with such expres
sions us "Dewey Did It," and "Three
Cheers for the Admiral," etc. A num
ber of them insisted on shaking hands
with Mr. and Mrs. Rose.and when they
insisted that they were not the Deweys,
one womnn remarked: "Ah, I know
yo; yo can't fool me; you're Dewey
all right, all right."
Upon their arrival at WIlkes-Barro
the now thoroughly embarrassed couple
registered at tho Sterling, nnd there
experienced much difficulty in convinc
ing newspaper men and others that
they really were Rev. and Mrs. Frank
B. Rose. During their stay, newsboys,
bootblacks, and others followed them
about until the experience really be
came aggravating, and finally they
bonrded a car for Harvey's lake, and
while en route obtained some relief
from tho crowds which followed them.
But they did not cscnpo even there,
and were compelled to leave owing to
the annoying circumstances.
They returned to Scranton on an
evening train, nnd as soon 'as they
were observed, the word was passed,
and again they experienced much
trouble. The couple went to the Scrnn
ton House dining rooms for lunch, nnd
while there were "positively Identified"
by a number of people, among whom
were Victor Koch und others who had
seen tho admiral In tho naval parade In
Shortly before 8 o'clock, Rev. and
Mis. Roso went to the waiting room of
tho Lackawanna station, and while
there were Interviewed by a Tribune
man. They positively asserted that
their naino was Rose nnd that the
day's pleasure which thoy had antici
pated had boon spoiled entirely by the
curious crowds that followed them
As soon ns tho newspapermen began
talking to tho couple, a crowd assem
bled In tho waiting room and formed a
