NORWOOD, Sept 13 Capt J. Stearns Cushing, candidate for the republican nomination for the governor's council, a position one of his ancestors filled generations ago, yesterday entertained members of the Suburban Press association at his home in Norwood. Chaperoned by schoolhouse commissioner Thomas W. Leavltt of Boston, secretary of the association, they left Dudley st on special cars yesterday forenoon at 11 o'clock for Norwood for Capt Cushing's residence. They arrived shortly after noon and were welcomed by the captain, Mrs and Miss Cushing, who had prepared an appetizing luncheon for the visitors, spread on the lawn of their beautiful estate. After luncheon the visitors were taken over the plant of the Norwood Press, where they saw one of the largest printing, eleclrotyping and binding establishments in the country in operation. The workings of the monotype were a revelation to most of the visitors and when they reached the bindery where nearly three-quarters of a million books were stored ready for shipment, the visiting newspaper men got a good Idea of the capacity of the immense plant. Capt Cushing Informed them that the three concerns interested in the Norwood Press turned out 13,000 books a day, mostly educational works. They were also Informed that three-quarters of the text books used in the schools and colleges of the country and ri.any foreign books were set up printed and bound in the town. The plant averages a carload shipment to New York daily. Among those who participated in today s outing were: Mr and Mis Geo. C. Fairbanks, Natlck Bulletin: Mr and Mrs Wm. White Mansfield News; W. J.

Compromise Expected on Return of Mill Chief. ket become more settled, but this Is, of i course, simply a surmise and cannot oe continued ifrom any authoritative source. 3--ALL RIVER, Sept 13 There are no new developments in the strike of the weavers at the Iron works mills today Supt Hathaway is understood to be in New York, having gone there Sunday night, supposedly to consult with M. C. D. Borden, the owner. At the office of the company it was said that there was no information to be given out. The strikers held a meeting at the Weavers' building in the morning, at which about 1000 were present, and discussed the situation for nearly two hours, but without taking deilnite ac-I:on of any kind beyond resolving lo stay out until their demands were ac- ceeded to. This aCternoon Sec Whitehead of tho weavers' union gave out the following statement: "The weavers in theBe mills have ' tried every way posalble to have their grievances remedied without resorting to a strike. Two or three conferences havo been held with the superintendent and he has refused to make conditions right. It was up to the weavers, therefore, to either keep on working under conditions which had bfeconie intolerable or refuse to do so. "They chose to refuse to work any longer under these conditions. When you And 1000 weavers responding so unanimously as these weavers did to a call to come out on strike there muat be something wrong. The speed of the looms has been so high and the woik so bad that ft has been a case of work hard from morning until night. "It has been my opinion that the trouble all along has been that the speed of the machinery in all departments has been too high and bad work has resulted which ha& ail come to the weaver to contend with. There has been too much effort made to get off large production In the various departments and in the end the weaver has had to stand for ull of the bad work. "In some of the oMier departments, too, the help has been on the verge of making a protest agiinat the driving. The weavers would have liked to have had these condition - remedied. Their feeling now is that if u settlement isn't reached immediately they will go somewhere else to work. Many of the mill In this city would only be too glad to get these weavers." It is expected that when Supt Hathaway returns from New York some proposition may be made by the management looking to a compromise. It is suggested in some quarters that perhaps Mr Borden may not be averse to suspending operations in his mills at this time for a few weeks, inasmuch as he is understood to have a large amount of gray cloths ahead either In his storehouses or contracted for and would prefer not to use up his cotton which he bought at prices materially below the preaent quotations for the staple in manufacturing it into goods, at least not until conditions in the ootton iniu- ALL OF 2200 WENT BACK. Weavers Resumed Work in York Mills, Saco, Me Old Pay, But Management Promises More Soon. SACO, Me, Sept 13 After an idleness of about three weeks the 2200 employes of the York mill of this town, who were thrown out of employment by the strike of 150 weavers, returned to work today. They quit for an advance in pay, and a few days afterward the entire plant was closed down. The weavers went back to work at the old rate of wages, but the mill management promised to do something for them as soon as possible. The strikers appeared to be all glad to return, as the layoff has been an expensive one for them, they having lost between J30.000 and $40,000. Agent Page of the mill declared today that the owners of the mill were in no particular hurry to resume operations, as the shutdown had not caused them any loss. He said that during the time the mill was closed all its orders were maue up by other cotton mills of New England, which have formed an 'association to insure themselves against losses by strikes. BAGGING WEAVERS STRIKE. Cut in Wages to About $9 Opposed in the Gunny Department of the Ludlow Mills. LUDLOW. Sept 13 Following th-' doing of the gunny bagging department of the Ludlow manufacturing associates two weeks ago because of the strike of the creel boys, who were refused an increase' from $5 to $5.50 a week, the company posted a notice last Friday declaring that when the mills opened today they would pay the weavers in that department only 20 cents a hundred yards, a decrease or. four cents, because of the low tariff and their consequent inability to compete with foreign manufacturers, especially India. When the department opened this morning none of th6' 160 weavers started work and a committee was appointed to demand their old wages. The committee consulted with agent Sidney Stevens today, but was unsuccessful, agent Stevens declaring that heretofore and even under the proposed decreased wage's the company pays more for gunny bagging weaving than any similar manufacturing establishment in the country. The strikers met tonight and the committee reported its failure to win tho old wages. None of the employes of the company are' organised, but the striking weavers made a futile effort to persuade the other employes to strike in sympathy. At the meeting tonight it wan decided by the striking weave'rs that they would leave town, as they Informed agent Stevens that they would not be able to live properly under the new wage, which amounts to about M a week. At the old rate of 24 cents a hundred yards they got about $11 a week. ThH is the second cut within a year. The other departments are working at full time. The gunny department has again dosed down for another week. Moat of the employes are Poles and French. RATS OUT FOR LICENSE TOWN May Drive Worcester to Wet Column. They Enter the Fight by Their Attack on the Merchants. No Saloons Costs Them a Living, It is Charged. WORCESTER, Sept 1S-A feature of the no-license regime in Worcester t complained of by the merchants in the center of the city, who are repot ting the loss of large amounts of property by the depredations of rats. The proprietors of the big department storos declare that until recently their places of business were signally free from the rats, but lately their stores have become overt-un with the pests that eat everything that they can bite. The reason for the Invasion is said to be the absence of the nearly 100 saloons, which gave the rats a fat living in the days and nights they were open. Tho demolition of the old buildings at Washington sq, to make room for tho new union station, Is also held partly responsible for the new troubles of the merchants. The rats have also a;ot Into the theatres around Harrington corner, and It Is not an unusual thing to see a big gray fellow walk up or down an aisle during a performance. Convention on Sept 29.
