FEW DISTRICTS HOSTILE. Yorkshire and Flfeshlre Chief Centers of Resentment Because of Decision to End Coal Strike. LONDON, April 7 Only In a very few districts is any hostile feeling shown on account of the decision of the National Miners Federation whereby the great strike has been ended and the men will go back to work. Yorkshire and Flfeshlre are the chief centers of resentment, but even In those places It is expected that the bulk of the men will return to the collieries. Trouble with the engine men and surface men may delay a general resumption of work in South Wales and Durham, but practically throughout the United Kingdom the coal mines will be under full operation by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Boston Central Labor Union yesterday, by a unanimous vote, indorsed the order, now before the City Council, providing for the consolidation of the park, public grounds, music and batn departments. Under a decision of the A. F. of L. executive board the Boston Bricklayers' Union 3 and Stonemasons' Union 9 lost their membership in the C. L. U. The decision waa the result of a protest made nearly a year ago by the Boston A. F. of L. Building Trades Department. when the Bricklayers and Stonemasons' Unions withdrew from membership in that body. As the International Bricklayers. Masons and Plasterers- Union Is not a part of the A. K. cf L. and the local unions had been given membership the Boston C. L. U. when they were attached to the local building trades department, the building trades doiuirt-ment claimed they could not continue as members of the C. 1- U. after withdrawing from that body. There has beer, a considerable exchange of correspondence on the mailer wlrnin the past year and yesterday came a letter from Sec Morrison of the A. F. cf L. stating that the unions In question w-ere not eligible to further tnembe shin In the Boston C. I U. There being nc objection made by ary egales. the A. Fl of order of the delega terminating the membership of the two unions was carried out without As is the custom of the National executive board of the American Federation of Labor to hold its meetings In various Urge cities, the meeting, by a unanimous vote, extended an invitation to the board to hold Its nex, session In this city. Atty Gen Swift Explains. A letter was received from Atty Gen James M. Swift in reply to the resolution auopted by the C. L. U. several weeks ago protesting against the Injunction asked for In connection with the Lawrence strike fund of the Atty Gen Swift. In his letter, stated; "So much misunderstanding appar-entl exists with reference to the action the Supreme Court that it may be of If I explain precisely what i his action Is. Th petition primarily is for an accounting and not for an and the Question of Injunction has been too much emphasized by the press accounts. An Injunction Is required by the petition only in case illegal use lias been found to have teen made of tne money. "Your resolution is the first inttlma-tlon or suggestion that has come to me that this will in any way hurt the cause of organized labor. It was not intended for any such purpose. There are certain persons, a good many more than the three- who appear as petitioners in the bill, who have felt that money which they contributed solely for the purpose of supporting the hungry and needy was being used for other purposes, and desired an accounting to see Whether or not this was so. --As It concerned a public charity the Attorney General was required by law to become a party thereto, and so the action is brought In the name of the Attorney General at the relation of the real part'es In interest. I have taken no persona! action In the case and do not know Us present status. The action Is precisely the same as would be taken In case your union had contributed funds to a put he charitable cause which you believed to have been diverted to other and requested the use of the Attorney General's name to get an accounting In such a case." Big Labor Reception Planned. One resolution adopted charged unknown person or persons with an effort to create class feeling through the press by statements that the recent textile wage Increases will be paid by the publlc. Severa! of the Pacific Coast Central Labor Unions sent coinmunclatlons warning tne workmen to keep away from the coast as there was a surplus of workmen in every line, and the employers' associations and "open shop" advocates are trying to bring additional help to those cities so as to break the labor unions. Word was received that Pres Samuel Go per of the A- F. of L. would I come to Boston week after next with i A Mendelssohn's Oratorio, St Paul," Is Sung. Mrs Williams and Earl Cartwright Find FaYor-as The Handel and Haydn Society gave a performance of Mendelssohn oratorio "St Paul at Its Easter concert last night at Symphony Hall. The soloists were Mrs Grace Bonner Williams, Miss Jennie F. W. Johnson, 'Franklin Rlker and Earl Cartwright. Mr Tucker was organist, the Boston Festival Orchestra played and Emil Mollenhauer conducted. Mendelssohn's musical setting of this Biblical story of the Apostles conversion from a persecutor of the faithful to a preacher among them. Is at least one abounding with melody. It falls pleasantly upon tne ear, although this facility and suaveness often exists at the expense of strength and dramatic force. There are expansive and Imposing climaxes and there are passages of mere sentimental tunefulness. It Is music that is Inherently vocal and there is much to reward a chorus. There Is also agreeable muslo to those who will overlook the superficiality and simpering of some portions of It for the sake of Mendelssohns grace and euphony in others. Of the soloists. Mrs Williams had the most to do. 'What she sang was done with pleasurable vocalism and good taste. Mr Cartwrights voice and grow ing authority of style are always wel- Ri come. Mr Rlker was adequate. The chorus acquitted Itself with credit In sonority and In various requirements of phrasing. There was an exceedingly large audience, which listened with every evidence of appreciation.

He was associate editor of the American Meteorological Journal from to 1896; lectured in the Lowell Institute course In 191 and 189S; was librarian of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and was a trustee of several educational institutions In Boston. He edited the "ooservations and Investigations at Blue Hill," published in the annals of the Harvard College Observatory since 1887 and was the author of "Sounding the Ocean of Air, "The Conquest of the Air. and numerous iqi articles in scientific journals.

Sweetheart WATCHES FRENCH TOILETS OF TAFFETA. weather predictions made dally at the observatory were published in the Boston newspapers until the Government Bureau began similar forecasts in Boston and they are still signaled bv flags from the station to neighboring towns. The work of the observatory, however. was mainly research, which is widely known to meteorologists througn Clouds especially were studied. The first exact measurements in America of the hight arid velocity of clcAyls, by trigonometrical and other methods, were made there In. 1890-91, and the measurements weie repeated in 1896-97 as part of an international system. Fromoter of Kite Research. On Blue Hill, In 1894, the first meteorological instrument recording graphically and continuously lifted by kites was sent up. and the possibility of obtaining data simultaneously in the free air by means of kites and on the ground was thereby demonstrated. This method of exploring the free air was Improved by the aid of a grant from the Hodgkins fund of the Smithsonian Institution, and very valuable results were obtained, automatic records of atmospheric pressure, air temperature, relative humidity and wind velocity being brought down from an altitude exceeding three miles, and nearly 300 series of observations secured at smaller hlghts in various weather conditions. The first meteorological records over the ocean were obtained in this manner by Prof Rotch in 1901 on a voyifBe across the Atlantic Ocean. The use of kftes to obtain meteorological data is now general in Europe and on a fixed day each month cooperative flights are made on Blue Hill. Under his direction, with the assistance of his staff, H. H. Clayton, meteorologist, S. P. Fergusson, mechanician, and A. Wells, observer since 1887, at the joint expense of Harvard Cuiversity and Mr Rotch, a series of most Interesting and valuable annals and bulletins was printed. A library building, erected In 1902, contains copies of the has reliefs on the tower of Andronikos Kyrrhestes In Athens, the eight allegorical figures of the winds. The library Is perhaps the best of Its kind In the United States, outside of Washington. Wireless Experiments. An Indefatigable student of every science in the remotest degree related to meteorology. Prof Rotch conducted some extremely Interesting experiments with wireless telegraphy and kites in 1899. Messages were sent to he station on Mt Chlckatawbut and some very valuable data were obtained. While his work was yet so novel as to inspire great curiosity, a number of balloons were released over Berlin In 1902 as part of the program of the International Aeronautical Commission. The president of the German division. Herr Von Bezold, warmly praised Mr Rotch's labors and said he hoped enough money would be raised to enable him to continue his study of the atmosphere above the Atlantic. Prof Rotch was professor of meteorology In Harvard University since 1906. He was a member of the International Jury of Awards in the Paris Exposition of 1899 and was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. He received the Prussian Orders of the Crown In 1902 and of the Red Eagle in 1905 in recognition of his efforts in advancing the knowledge of the atmosphere. Observations Over the Ocean. He made the first observations high above the Atlantic Ocean with kites In 1901 and he was the first man to make observations from 5 to 10 miles above the American continent with balloons. This was achieved in 1904. Again, In 1909, he obtained the first trigonometrical measurements of pilot balloons In the United States. He collaborated with Telsserenc de Bort In sending a steam yacht to explore the tropical atmosphere In 1905-06, and participated In a number of scientific expeditions in the United States, South America, Europe and Africa. He was an authority on balloons and frequently delivered lucid and Interesting lectures on that subject, from Its beginnings to the latest efforts of aeronauts. Prof Rotch was deeply Interested in airships, was president of the Harvard Aeronautical Society and waa one of the principal agents in the great exhibition held here in September. 1910. It was he who developed the Idea of the exhibition, wmen surpassed anything of Its kind previously undertaken Marry Me, 5.50 ELGfN tdfi J30 EI.GIN TH1X MODEL Remember for Monday and Pit Tuesday.

He remained at home until Friday, when he was removed to the hospital. The funeral services will be held in the Emmanuel Church Tuesday afternoon, probably at 3 oclock. Abbott Lawrence Rotch was known throughout the civilized world aa one of the really great scientific men of the century for his achievements in meteorology. He was born In Boston Jan 6, 1861, the son of Benjamin smith and Annie Bigelow Rotch. He- was educated in private schools and by a tutor and continued his studies in Pari3, Florence, Berlin and Boston. He was graduated a bachelor of science from the InsUtute of Technology In 1884 and awarded the honorary degree of master of arts by Harvard University In 1S9L He established the Blue Hill Observatory In 1885 as a private meteorological station and supported and directed it since. His work was of such Importance in the world of science that he is ranked by many with Benjamin Franklin as a student of the upper air. His observations in his chosen fieldWere received In every country of the globe as au-tive. thorltati Plonesr in His Field. Excepting the Municipal Meteorological Station In New York, the Blue Hill Observatory was the first In the United States to be equipped with Instruments, which recorded graphically and continuously all the meteorological elements, save the forms and motions of clouds usually observed at a station of the first order, and commencing la 1886 hourly values were printed.
