WILL DEMAND ^ I _
RAILROAD MANAGERS TO APPEAL
TO UNCLE SAM.
Decide to Take Advantage of Act of
Congress to Prevent 8trike of
Western Trainmen.
Chicago, 111., March 28.—The United
States government will be asked to
Intervene to prevent a strike of tho
conductors and trainmen ou the West-
ern railroads and If the plans of the
general maagcrs do not miscarry tho
whole controversy will be submitted
to arbitration for settlement. Late
last night the general managers issued
a statement in which they declare they
will demand arbitration under the Erd-
man act. As a strike of the men
would interfere with interstate com-
merce the railroad officials believe
that they can prevent a strike by ask-
ing the government to step in and
take command of the situation. The
Krdman act. issued In 1898, provides
for arbitration of labor difficulties
where Interstate commerce is involved
by the chairman of the Interstate Com-
merce Commission and the Commis-
sioner of Labor. The general mana-
gers' statement given out lato last
night follows:
"I^ate this afternoon the committee
of managers received an official noti-
fication of the vote of the conductors
and trainmen rejecting the last propo-
sition on an lncroase amounting to
1ft& per ccnt in wages and also au-
thorizing a strike in case no settle-
ment of the matters at issue could be
effected. The committee, accepting
this as a conclusion of the negotia-
tions ,bas notified Messrs. Garretson
and Morrissey, the leaders of the two
labor organizations Involved, that they
will demand arbitration under the Erd-
man act."
CONFERENCE WAS A FAILURE.
Strike on Western Railroads Seems
Near at Hand.
Chicago, 111., March 28.—The 45,000
men of tfae Western railroad seemed
nearer a strike last night than at any
time since tho negotiations were be-
gun two months ago with the general
managers for an increase in wages
and a shorter work day. The confer-
ence yesterday between the represen-
tatives, of the men and the railroad of-
ficials lasted four hours, but was a
failure, so far as bringing about a so-
lution of the trouble. The railroads
offered increases of 7 per cent to pas-
senger conductors and 10 per cent to
the minor employes. The latter in-
clude brakemen, firemen, baggagemen
and allied workers. The men had de-
manded an Increase of 12 per cent
and a nine-hour work day, and when
the railroad officials declared the'r of-
fer was tho best that could be made
the conference came to an end, as the
men, by a referendum vote taken last
week, had decided not to accept any-
thing but what their demauds called
for.
Immediately after tho Joint confer-
ence l>rojco up the representatives of
the men got together to consider the
advisability of calling a strike In or-
der to bring the railroads to terms.
Just what decision was reached was
not known last night, as the union
men decline to discuss what had tak-
en place at the meeting. They were
unit, however, in declaring a peace-
able settlement of the controversy can
only be reached by the general man-
agers offering concessions.
Another meeting of the union men
has been scheduled for this morning
and the general belief last night was
that a strike will be called within the
next forty-eight hours unless the rail-
road oflfcials request another confer-
ence to try and settle tho matter wl th-
ou t resorting to a fight.
AN ALL-DAY CONFERENCE.
Conductors and Trainmen in Confer-
ence at Chicago.
Chicago, March 2S.—Tho conductors
and trainmen, who yesterday rejected
the offer of the general managers of
Western roads, are today In Confer-
ence. Tho meeting will probably last
all day.

New York, March 28.—This afteiv
noon will see the first session of the
commission which Is to determine
whether Harry K. Thaw Is sane or in-
sane. It consists of David McClure,
who became Its chairman upon the to-
tally unexpected withdrawal from
the commission yesterday of ex-.Ius-
tice Morgan J. O'Brien; Dr. Leopold
Putzell and Petor B. Olney. The hour
when tho commission will bold Its
first sitting is 2 o'clock and the place
will bo the court room wliero the trial
of Thaw has been going on. It is un-
certain what the commission will do
today. Nothing more may be accom-
plished than to organize and to accept
from counsel the affidavits filed; with
Justice Fitzgerald when he was seek-
ing information as to whether or not
to appoint the commission. District
Attorney Jerome had copies made last
night <t>f all tho affidavits and exhibits
of the \prosecution for presentation to
the commission.
Daniel O'Reilly of counsel for Thaw
said yesterday that Thaw will surely
take tho witness stand before the com-
mission and answer all of Its ques-
tions, and further that ho will submit
to a physical examination by any ex-
perts sent to him for that purpose.
Thaw's other lawyers had nothing to
say on this subject
It was said about the Criminal
Courts building last night that It ma
require a week or more for tho coi
mission to hear all of the witnesses
who will be cited to appear. In any
case the commission will expedite Its
work by all the means In Its power.
As It Is, Thaw Js becoming nervous
and excitable un<i|or the strain. His
friends and relatives fear that he will
break down unless the case ends
soon. His wife, too, Is giving way.
When she was In court, yesterday with
the prisoner's mother and brothers
and sisters, | It was noticed that her
cheeks were pale and sunken and her
brow wyinkled. When she and Mrs
William Thaw went to Thaw's cell in
the Tombs, after he hsd be n .told by
his lawyers that Justice Fitzgerald
had appointed Mr. McClure In place of
ex-Justice O'Brien, it is said that, she
collapsed. But the elder Mrs. Thaw
is reported to have borne herself
with much fortitude. Thaw is said to
have been almost violent over the
prospect of further delay.

KINGSTON
L
HAS IT.
New York, March 28.—E. H. Harri-
man said yesterday when asked for
his opinion of Jacob H. Schlff's plan
for a conference between the Inter-
state Commerce Commission and a
committee of railroad presidents, that
the best way to clear up the railroad
situation was not to ariango confer-
ences, but for Congress to amend the
Sherman anti-trust act.
"I have thought for years, and I still
think," Mr. Harrlman said, "that the
best thing to do to improve tho rail-
road situation would be to amend the
Sherman act so that , railroads could
make agreements among themselves.
Then we railroad men could look each
other in the face, and do business as
other people do. Give the railroads a
chance to piake contracts between
themselves regarding the handling
and distribution of traffic, and the rail-
road situation would pretty soon right
Itself."
