New York, July 14. Meeting in Web
ster hall, the committee of 1,000 repre
senting the Older of Uallway Conduct
ors and the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen ratilled the strike resolution
Which was adopted by the two organ
lzations. The announcement that the
resolution had been ratified was greet
ed by cheers which were heard for
several blocks. Immediately after the
the result of the vote of the committee
was made known the members of the
committee were ordered to leave the
city at once and return to their homes
to await the word of ordering out more
than 00,000 conductors and trainmen.
The railroads were given until to
morrow noon to make any peace offer
ings they may desire. If no word is
heard from the roads by that time it is
practically certain that the strike will
be called Immediately.
The result of the meeting will be
formally transmitted to Elisha Lee.
chairman of the conference committee
of the board of railroad managers. Al
though the men have voted to strike,
such a move may yet be averted if the
eastern railroads consent to the arbi
tration of the questions at issue, as
provided for In the Erdman act.
This course was followed by tho
rallroads when demands for more
money and changes in working condi
tions were made by the engine drivers
and subsequently by the firemen, when
tho men won substantially that for
which they asked. Under tho Erd
man act the arbitration board in such
disputes shall consist of three men.
Tho railroads contend that a board of
three men is unjust to both sides and
that as the third member of the board
has tho deciding vote It places too
much responsibility on him.
Puts It Up to Roads.
As soon as the result of the vote bad
been made known and tho cheering
had subsided in the hall, the commit
teemen left the building rapidly, pro
paring to leave tho city at once. A. B.
Garretson, representing tho conductors,
and W. G. Lee, representing the train
men, were in high spirits.
"If tho railroads persist in their at
titude," declared Mr. Garretson, "there
Will bo a strike on the forty-five east
ern roads this week."
"Yes," agreed Mr. Lee, "and wo
know tho date on which tho strike
will be called, as the Eastern associa
tion has given us full permission to
decide on the date.
"Wo have asked each man to leave
the city as expeditiously as possible
and return to tho local of which ho is
executive committee member to await
the call. Wo will notify tho board of
rlillroud managers of tho action we
have just taken. Tho general chair

has forty-five, and tho ten executive
officers will remain hero until to-morrow

"What effect will the pending situa

"Our action shows what wo intend to
do," ho answered.
"Wo will make no more propositions
to tho railroads," added Mr. Garretson.
"Unless tho railroads accedo to our
demand," Mr, Leo resumed, "and sub
mit the question to arblrtatlon as
provided for under tho Erdman act.
there will bo u strike by Wednesday."
The samo secrecy which attended tho
first sesslou In Webster hall was ob
served yesterday. No man was allowed
to enter until ho and his credentials
had been carefully scrutinized. Every
door aud window was closed, but al
though the thousand men packed in
tho hall must bavo suffered greatly
from tho heat tho sound of cheering
and applauso roso every few moments

Cheers Greet Results,
Tho voting began about noon. The
union representatives of each of tho
affected roads got together and voted
for the locals of that particular road,
Tho result of this was reported to Gar

the vote was finished Garretson and

of wild cheering. Tho following

By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington, July 14. Special.
Many witnesses that have appeared
before tho investigating committees
and reluctantly told or skillfully avoid

port of senators and members for or
against measures and procedure by tho
administration and tho courts. Of
coarse they did not have tho "goods"
to deliver, but they made their buyers
believe that they were dealing ln Job
lots of senators and representatives.
The contempt has not only extended
to tho witnesses who told how they
duped men with money seeking favors,
but also to thoso who were duped by
such palpablo frauds. Tho wholo in
vestigation lias developed reasons why
men sell gold bricks, why bunko busi

After men bavo been holding office
ln Washington for sixteen straight

they become too arrogant for public

have been placed ln positions of au
thority. Tho greatest blessing which
changes of administration bring ls tho
elimination from. the public service of
thoso who grow to believo that they
"own tho government." These thoughts
are inspired by tho removal of a num
ber of men by tho present administra
tion who had becomo barnacles mid

Congress recognized the necessity of

the army must servo with their com
mands every four years. Secretary
Garrison has supplemented tho legis
lation by ordering all officers who have
been four years ln Washington back
to their commands, thus making "Man
chus" of all. Secretary Daniels has
made a like movo ln tho navy. Bo It
ls becoming recognized ns a necessity
ln tho fixed service to havo changes,
and similar changes in tho civil serv
ice, whero men hold positions of au
thority, are oquayj jleslrable.
Senator Bacon has ono regular stuui
every day. Ho puts the senato in ex
ecutlvo session. That seems to bo the
prerogatlvo of tho chairman of tho
committee on foreign relations. It was
the most Important act each day of the
venerablo Senator Cullom when ho
held tho samo position which tho Geor
gia senator now occupies.
Not a Junket.
A trip by tho members of tho houso
commltteo on naval affairs to tho dif
ferent navy yards along tho Atlantic
coast ls not a Junket. They go ln a
navy ship, ono of tho small dispatch
boats, but they pay their own mess
bills. Tho government has no extra
expense because tho ship is in commis
sion and tho cost would go along Just
the same. Of courso It is a pretty nico
trip at this tlmo of year.
Plenty of Tim.
Tho house, of. representatives will
nave plenty of time to consider the
currency bill. Tho senate will afford
that opportunity while the tariff dis
cussion is going on. And by tho looks
of things it will bo necessary to give
the members of tho banking nnd cur
rency committee ample time to consid
er tho bill.
If tho Democratic members really
agree on the terms of any kind of
bill-it will be little short of a miracle.
Every man has n different Idea of what
kind of currency legislation should be
enacted. Uncle Joe Cannon once said
that all that seemed necessary to make
men absolutely ln disagreement with
each other was to make them mem
bers of the currency committee.
Trying to 8ave His Face.
Admiral Dewey once said that he
was devoting all his tlmo now to liv

quently ho hesitates about having a
plaster cast made of bis face. Quite
a number of persons are Interested ln
Jrying to "save their faces" for future
generations, but the hero of Manila
Bay has somo doubt about the possi
bility of an accident.
"It Pays to Advertise."
"One thing Is sure," remarked n
member of tho house, "the pure food
law lost a lot of advertising when Dr.
Wiloy retired from the agricultural de
partment. I don't know whether he
accomplished much or not. but ho cer
tainly did keep pure foods before tho
public with mighty little expense, for
It was mostly free advertising."

(From the Erie Daily Times, July 9).

Tener has spent much of her time on

and a party of friends were taken
for a ride on the tug Commodore

noon was devoted to watching fisher
men remove the flnny denizens of the
sea from tho nets.
Mrs. Tener manifested keen inter

auest will be taken on a second ex

He exnects to make a rigid examina
