where It had been It swung west again through tall timber in those days and Judge Allen who hurried ahead of the rest found a Sp3Ce of i50 feet south of Twenty-sixth street and too feet west of Baltimore ave flue which was accepted by all as bung part of the trail At the Fiore lholt home south of Twenty-seventh street the trail was definitely marked as crossing under where the front porch is now Mr Bernard told a story of a minister who built a house fifty years ago alongside of the trail There was a huge stump where the cellar was dug out and Bernard and some friends got eight or ten men and as many ox teams and tried to pull the stump out It was slippery and the chains would not hold The drivers talked to the oxen in the language of the day and the preacher got tired and told them to give it up Ile had an Irishman working for him and the Irishman buried the stump tinder the house Mr Chick made some disparaging remarks about the story but at the Eggelhoff home it was said that the stump was still there and Alr Bernard was vindicated Where the trail crossed what is now the entrance to Penn Valley park a stake was driven It is directly south of the Eggelhoff house and the park board will be asked to mark it with a suitable monoment The trail then turned eastward Mr Chick and Mr Bernard said the old trail followed Main street to Thirty-first street Lemuel Fuqua said they were wrong lie showed how the trail went west and came aroun t to Broadway Mr Duke was inclined so accept his view When the party reached Hunter avenue there was a long argument "We went on down Broadway and wound around that side of the hill to the Eggelholl place" Fuqua said Bernard said he was wrong Duke supported Fuqua Mr Chick explained "Bill McGee" he said "had a forty west of I Main and about south of Hunter avenue The trail ran across it diagonally to Thirty-fifth and Broadway McGee wanted to Iplant corn on the forty so he fenced the trail out ' "Then the teams followed Broadway and ' went around on the west side of the hill the way Mr Fuqua says but that was years after the first trail was laid out and it only lasted about three years That is what makes the confusion" However Mr Fuqua was not satisfied and he had considerable support from the younger men There were differences about how the McGee forty was crossed but Mr Bernard defended his contention that the trail was diagonal to Thirty-fifth and Broadway by showing that in excavating for foundations near Thirty-fourth and Central contractors have dug out half rotten logs that were laid down sixty years ago where the trail crossed a marsh It made a "corduroy road" South from Thirty- fifth the trail ran almost straight but whether on Broadway or east of Broadway to Shaffer avenue is a bone of contention that remains unsettled but at Shaffer avenue it turned west and reached NVashington street at Fortieth street following nearly if not quit Hamilton avenue to Westport avenue DRINKS S19350

Difficulty Still to de Settled by Elm preen Companies Oman° May 20--rem'e terms tentatively accepted by the teamsters' joint council were ratified by the international president Mr Shea to-day The acceptance has atill to be fully indorsed at a meeting of the joint council to-night Unless well laid plans for a termination of the struggle are overthrown by radicals in the ratification meeting the teamsters it is believed will be back at work Monday— as many of them as can find work That the union committee A J Reed secretary of the Furniture Drivers' union President C P Shea and President W J Gibbons of the teamsters' joint council did not represent all of the elements within the teamsetrs' organization was a report current to-day about labor headquarters THZ PROPOSED TERMS Little time was consumed by the strike committee in Mr Mayer's office in announcing their acceptance of the employers' terms in general A transcript of the several propositions submitted last night to the teamsters' joint council includes the following points: lhe strikers are to be reinstated wherever vacancies occur expept that the employers will not consider applications of men convicted of violence or violation of the law the settlement does not include the express companies union men must deliver to the express companies when ordered to do so the Employers' Teaming company to continue having non-union men the open shop to prevail working conditions wages and hours to remain the same as before the strike REPRESS COMPANIES CAVSZ TROUBLE The only point on which the strikers' committee was tenacious was that per-taming to express companies The latter had expressed a determination not to take back strikers They asserted that by striking the latter had broken their contract In agreeing to a settlement the union representatives were understood to waive the question of reinstatement of employees of the express companies Anticipating a refusal by the officials of the express companies to modify the stand taken by Chicago representatives it was conjectured that the labor leaders might endeavor to center a fight upon the express companies and lift the ban from all other concerns No definite steps in that direction were taken however pending a reply from the higher officials of the express companies This afternoon Mayer attorney of the Employers' association made the following statement: TO DECIDE TO-NIGHT "Mr Shea and Mr Reed who are now with tue join with me in saying that the question as to whether the strike will be continued or be declared off has not yet been determined but depends upon the conclusion which Shea and Reed arrive at when they take up the matter with the teamsters' joint council this evening In the meanwhile none of us will or can predict what the outcome will be This statement is authoratitive and any reports to the contrary are unfounded and mere guesswork" To-day committees from the various local unions of teamsters visited the employers to make the best terms possible regarding reinstatement A committee of coal teamsters called upon the officers of the Peabody Coal company and a committee visited the officials of the Coal exchange the officials of the Commercial exchange the organization of wholesale grocers Still another committee made a call upon the express managers The various department store managers received committees from the delivery wagon drivers TEN MEN STRUCK To-DAY Notwithstanding that the strike seemingly is at an end ten drivers of flour wagons quit to-day They were teamsters for John Weckhart & Co and they went out because they were ordered to deliver goods to boycotted stores Mr Gompers president of the American Federation of Labor returned to Chicago to-day His arrival was in accordance with anntiuncernent that he would come back to aid if possible in the settlement of the strike Patrick E Blackwell a policeman died to-day at Mercy hospital His death is the tenth ascribed to the teamsters' strike Blackwell was injured while guarding a Wells-Fargo express wagon THIS TOWN HAS NO BABIES The Cry of au Infant Would Be Must° in - Markaboto N J MARKSBORO N J May 2o--Marksboro a town
