ILL EFFORTS TO SETTLE STRIKE Street Railway Companies De cline Offer of The Com mission PARADE PLANNED FOR TOMORROW May be Followed by Sympa thetic Walk-out Alleged Plot Discovered byv Detectives (By Associated Press.) New York, Sept. 13. The Inter- borough Rapid Transit and the New York Railway's Companies formally rejected today the public service com mission's recommendation for a strike settlement. The two companies, controlling the subway. "L" and "Green" car sur face lines, declined to hold further conferences with Union representa tives and announced their intention to continue operation of their lines on present basis. Brooklyn detectives, it was disclos ed today, are investigating reports of a plot to damage the property oft the Interborough company. A cylin drical package, 4 inches by 3 inches in diameter, was found by a track walker near Borough Hall subway station, in Brooklyn, last night. It contained, according to officials, dyna mite of the powerful kind, general ly used in undersea, operations. But few of the surface cars were operated today and passengers were forced to use the roads. Although subway and "L" traction officials i claims more trains tfaan normal are in operation there was congestion at the station. Platforms- were crowd ed and many narrow escapes were experienced by passengers. There was little or no violence during the night, due especially to the fact that policemen were stationed on roof tops from where attacks were made en "L" trains. Hugh Frayne, state organizer off the American Federation of Labor, announced today that between 12,000 and 20,000 will take part in the pa rJde and demcfistration tomiMTqwt Although he declined to discuss the proposed "sympathetic" strike, other Union leaders said plans were be ing made to call out all trades close ly allied with the street car lines in the event the demonstration tomor row and the efforts of the public ser vice commission prove unavailing to settle the trouble. Following the reply of the traction companies the strikers, through Wil- j mm d. uzgeraia, general orpmsr ui iuv hireet car employes uuiuu, .u- . formed the committee that the strik ers could not accede to the request of the commission to bring the strike to an immediate conclusion, in view t of the stand taken by the traction com panies. He accepted, in behalf of the union, the recommendation that the questions at issue be submitted to ar bitration.

C, Sept 13. Henry B. Varner, chairman . of the state prison board, attended the meeting of that body yesterday and returned home in the afternoon. Mr. Varner is just' back from' Lex ington,. Kentucky, where he attended ti good roads convention. While out there Charles Evans Hughes, Republi can candidate for the presidency, came in the hotel at which Mr. Varner was stopping. The Lexington, North Caro lina, "newspaper man met the former judge. "Fairbanks is super-heat in compari son' Mr. Varner saidi. ;Wihy, when that doggone man came into that hotel, he didn't create as much excitement as I would have done had I turned up -at good roads speaking at Fuquay Springs where probably ninety percent of the people would have been against me. Teddy. Taft or Wilson would have caused the hotel guests to tear down the house. But they d'idVt seem to pay a particle of attention to Hughes. I think if we can't beat him we might as well go out of business. "WoodrowWilson is running in the west like a house aflame. I don't be lieve they can beat him, not with Hughes. And understand that in say ins: this I don't pretend to be the orig inal Wilson man. I am one man who never was for Wilson until after he was nominated. I was for Underwood. But Wilson is the greatest fellow in the country and he is going to make a clean sweep this year." AGAIN FAILS TO Ml L Old Trouble Breaks Out . Again Jn Wake County i lownship (Special to The Dispatch.) Raleigh, N. C, Sept 13.-County Superintendent D. F. Giles vainly strove to open Mount Vernon School ! yesterday morning, but when he closed his beautiful appeal to the manhood of the place, parents led away their chil dren1 and precipitated the old trouble. The school failed last year when J. R. Medlin's children, about the like liest looking to be found, it is said, came for registration. Mr. Medlin's children were pronounced pure-blooded by the superior court, by the su preme and by all the law that could be scraped up. They were therefore within their perfect rights. But the neighborhood swears by all the horns of the altar tat they have an infinitesi mal tinge of black blood in tern and the community will not support the scnooj year when SuperIntendent Giles . . . toQnWa out there the school broke into hostile camp and a subscription session was taught near that place which is three miles from Raleigh. Mr. Medlin thought he had overcome the prejudice which is not against him, and announced that forty or fifty would stick this year. They did show up today and Mr. Giles is against his immeorial trouble. The community has not persecuted the Medlins. It has simply refused S attend the school since the Medlin ixed-blood controversy arose. When it came up the board of education ruled against the Medlins. They appealed to the superior court and there the jury deciding the issues of fact pronounced the children of pure blood. The appeal went up. and Chief Justice Clark writ ing the opinion relied upon the jury. Justice Walker dissented. This morn ing Professor Giles tried to appeal to the community by telling it that its citizenship, good and true, had decid ed the children - all white. The pat rons demurred to his flattery. They said the jury had been picked for a peculiar purpose. Mr. Giles naa commissionea air. aua r Mrs. R. L. Hoke to teach the school and these be good people, relatives of the soldiers and jurista who bear that name, it is said. The teachers began as though they had never heard of trou ble. They, weren't troubling trouble until trouble trbiibled them. Which was uncommonly early. ' 1 -w RUSSIANS REPULSED IN CARPATHIANS. ' (By Associated Press1.)
