Saturday, Sept. 4,1909. THE TIMES. I LL VOTE OH QUEST! OF STRIKE NEXT WEEK an club was an Important factor In the last campaign anj many of the young members of the party are aa anxious to get Into another fray aa they were last year. Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, the carmen In Hammond and the other cities of the Calumet region will have an opportunity, individually, to express their opinion of the Fisher plan for the settlement of their difficulties by means of a referendum vote. The union employe of the Chicago City Railway company in a union meeting at Gerrity's hall, 4200 State street, voted last night to refer the wage ' schedule proffered by "Walter L. Fisher, city traction representative, and approved by President Thomas E. Mitten of the company, to a referendum to be held next Tuesday or Wednesday. The action was taken after a spirited meeting. In which union orators endeavored to have the matter held open until the employes of the Railways company on the north and west sides could settle their differences with President John M. Roach. President W. D. Mahon of the International union, in two speeches to the men, talked against arbitration, saying that the men could not tell what they might get were th dispute to be arbitrated, and that he would prefer to see It settled outright. According to an understanding arrived at In the recent negotiations, the dispute will go to arbitration if the offer of Mr. Fisher is rejected-While the meeting developed considerable sentiment against the Fisher suggestion, the crowd largely was made up of radicals. Conservatives among the car men said they were glad of a chance to have the wage schedule passed on by each man In the south side union according to his conscience. Union Ladrn Cauttoas. Early In the evening, preceding the meeting of the south side employes. Mr. Fisher had a talk with President Mahon at the Briggs House. Clarence O. Pratt, chairman of the executive board of the Amalgamated Association of Union Car Men, was present at the meeting, but immediately after it left for Pittsburg, Kas., where he is scheduled to make a Labor day speech. The situation at that time had assumed a doubtful tinge. Some of the union officials thought it advisable to try to bring about the passage of the Fisher proposition in mass meeting and avoid the delay contingent upon a formal referendum vote. Other union of ficials feared that the proposition would be "turned down in mass meeting, and that a resulting referendum vote con sequently would be prejudiced. Case Continued. The case of the State of Indiana vs. Walkowski, who Is alleged to have embezzled a sum of money which belonged to his father, was continued In Judge Ames' court until Sept. 18. Five Assault Cases Filed. The Wilsons and the Dubovltehs are having a terrible time to adjust their neighborhood difficulties. Between the two families there have b-een five cases of assault and charges of provoking assault filed In Judge Ames' court. The trouble arose over a trivial mat ter, but it has assumed large proportions. The case has been contfnued so frequently that Judge Ames says it will have to be tried tonight. ADES THE ORTH SIDE W. II. Gostlln announced today that he is buying Ilohman street frontage on the north side and that he will buy all of the cheap frontage that is for sale. Mr. Gostlln has already secured eight lots and he will buy as many more as he can get cheaply. When asked If there was any particular reason why he should interest himself in Hohman street frontage, Mr. Gostlln said that he believed that it would increase In value. However, he said there was no immediate reason that the property would show a sudden increase In value. The people of the north side who have been complaining that there was no market for their property should sit up and take notice. The interest that is being shown by the firm of Gostlln, Meyn & Co. in their north side holdings is significant. , , "Somedlg DolnV The fact that their holdings In this part of the city are being continually strengthened is taken as an Indication that they have faith in the north side. Just as a State street German said when W. H. Gostlln bought some fron tage on that street, "Veil dere must be somedig dcln' yen Billy Gostlln kooms by our streed." The people on the north side are looking forward to better times. Mr. Gostlln says he will buy all of the cheap proerty that can be bought there and he expects to clean up all of the bargains there is by next week. SAY THAT ITS UP TO f HQ! not only abutting property owners but among property owners between Hohman street and the state line and the propert yowners in West Hammond as well. JLIREQ M DESERTED N S R D William Nauman, 527 Indiana ave nue, was taken home in an ambulance from the corner of State and Hohman streets after he had been brought from the vicinity of Douglas park, where he is said to have fallen from a street car. Nauman is one of the old residents of the city, and was on a fishing trip with a man by the name of Borchert. After Nauman had been brought to the cor ner of State and Hohman streets by a short line car he was deserted by Borchert for some unknown reason, and was left sitting on the curb. Captain Rimbach ascertained his condition and attempted to put him on an eastbound East Chicago car, which would take him home. , The injuries were ao painful, however, that It was necessary that, he be removed to his home In an ambulance. Emmerling's ambulance was called and the injured man was given the proper medical attention after his ar rival home. HAMMOND NEWS To Build Block Soon.

"The project has been up before," said Adam Ebert, president of the board of public works, this morning, "but it has always fallen through. If the property owners want the improvement there will he no interference on the part of the city. I realize the benefit it would be to Hammond, and when West Hammond can give us assurance that they mean business we will proceed." "I surely favor the improvement of State Line street." said Peter Davis, another member of the board, in speaking of the proposed improvement this morning. "But it seems to me that it can never be carried out without a big fight." The Times' story last evening of West Hammond's renewed step to get together with Hammond on the improvement has aroused new interest among 1 Roth Opens Saloon.

The other grades will retail in pro portion. The cheaper classes of beef, known as chucks and plates mercifully, were eft at their old prices, ranging from down to 4 cents. Hash converts are expected accordingly. Pork Prices About aa Usual. One more slight ray of hope for the family provider was discovered In th fact that the price of veals remaine. unchanged and that mess pork had risen only a fraction of a cent. Pork loin, however, has risen 1V4 cents In the last few days and is now retailing from 1T to 18 cents. The local dealers say they are help less In the matter and that their prices are regulated by those of the whole saler. The statements of the experts In con nection with the unusual Increase say coolness unusual for this season of the year has led to an Increased consump tion of meat, and for a reason that remains unstated of the most expen sive cuts. The consequence has been a shortage In the supply of beef in the packers' coolers, they say. Cattle Receipts Falling Off. In addition, the experts said there recently had been a falling off In the receipts of cattle, and there were rumors spread abroad that It will be a long time before the receipts in crease sufficiently to enable the pack ers to restock their refrigerators. Thus, It was said, the packers reached a conclusion that the public appetite for tender, thick and Juicy steaks must be curbed. The rise in prices is the appetite restralner. Had the situation not been, extreme It was said had not the cool breezes aroused the appetite of normal man to an abnormal pitch and given it an extreme tendency in the direction of the porterhouse and sirloin, the increase might have been made In the ordinary way, without the housewlve "getting wise" unless she watched her accounts cloisely; that is, the increase would have been made by half-cent steps until the necessary height was reached. phone system, an underground one, was started this morning, when work on the conduits, to be laid In Foraythe avenue, was begun at Chicago avenue. , The work Is In charge of A.

WHERE- ABE HER IHREE passage over to the land of promise, they, tearfully bade farewell to the group of little wistful facts they were leaving behind them, and ventured' forth over the seas, to win a home for them. The children had an uncle who was able to provide a temporary home for the little brood, and as soon as they were able, the parents were to send over the money that would pay for their passage to Amrica. Fortune did not always favor them after they arrived in this country, but by dint of hard work they managed to make a little home for themselves, and by the most rigid aconomy they saved enough to warrant them in sending for the children. Albert Mocarny worked hard at the mill, and all day long, when her household duties did not require her presence at home, his wife toiled over the wash tub whenever she could find work, until the needed sum was raised. Early this year it was determined to send for the girls. The mother's heart could bear the separation no longer. She arranged it so that as she believed they could be with her Easter. But she did not realize the quantity of red tape which It would be necessary to unwind before it would be possible for the steamship company, and the United immigration inspection bureau would consent to take charge of, and receive the minors. ' Weeks and weeks went by. Many papers had to be signed and there were numerous visits to the office of the consul representing the home government of the Mocarnys, before the glad time arrived when the children could start on their long Journey. It was only a week ago lost Saturday, when they were permitted to start, and they arrived in Castle Garden last Monday. This last was reported by a man who lives In Whiting, but whose name Mrs. Mocarny did not know. He had been on the same boat with the children, and visited the Mocarny home on Wednesday, having come straight on from New York. Eagrly Awaits vr. The news that her children had arrived In this country, and yet she had not heard from them, made Mrs. Mocarny frantic with fear least some evil HERS (Special to The Times.) East Chicago, Sept. 4. In an upper flat In a tenement In Baring avenue near One Hundred and Fortyelghth strtet, sits a mother who is almost distracted by doubt as to what may have befallen her three daughters on their way alone to East Chicago from far away Budapest. One of them Is a wee girl less than six years old, whom her parents have not seen since she was a tiny baby. The others are aged 14 and 16 years. That tne children arrived at Castle Garden is known, but what has become of them since, or whether they are still there, is the question that is driving the mother frantic. The woman's name Is Mrs. Henry Mocarny. Her husband Is Albert Mo-cary and is employed at the Interstate mill. Four years ago the couple left the fatherland to seek their fortune in this country. Things had not gone well with them at home, and taking what little they could scrape together, which was barely enough to pay their PROVING THE TEMPER of both tool and user is many a bit of steel today.

Yesterday she sent a special delivery letter to the immigrant office there, enclosing money for a telegram, and although it was Impossible for the letter to have reached its destination until this morning, she made three trips to the Western Union office to learn if there was a message for her. She has had scarcely any sleep since she firEt learned her children arrived in Castle Garden, and declares in broken English, that she is almost crazy. If yesterday's special delivery letter is not productive of definite information regarding the whereabouts of the children, the consul in Chicago will be communicated with and his aid asked in searching them out. Mrs. Mocarny has learned the term "white salvers" and understands Us signiScance and she is not unaware of the dangers to which her own little girls are subjected on this long and perilous journey.
