WILL SETTLE EVERYTHING ^Member gays the Board Will be a Un |t In Doing What They Con- sider For the Best Interests o f The Station. A meeting o£4*aIuU board of control of the Now York Agri8ultur.il Experiment Station has been called for Friday, August ad The board is made up of the following numbers, viz: Governor Morton, Chas. Jones, Geneseo, W. 0 . Barry, Roches- ter, Monroe Co., Phillip N. Nicholas, Ge- neva, Ontario Co., Adrian TutWe, Watkins, 8,-bnyler Co., S. H. Hammond, Geneva, On- tario Co., William D . Barns, Middle Hope, Orange Co., Martin Va n Bure'n Ives, Pots- dam, St . Lawrence Co., Luman D. Olney, Watertown, Jefferson Co., and Col. Chase, of Syracuse, lately appointed by Gov. Mor- ton in place of Mr. Mills, deceased. Mr. Ives, a prominent republican of St. Lawrence county, is chairman of the board We are not advised what matters other than routine work, will come before the board. At the last meeting, held early i n June, a vacation of three-month^ was grantedDoc tor Collier, who was then a t the end of a long sickness, confined more or less to his bed. Doctor Van Slyke was made temporary director during Doctfcr Collier's vacation. That there i i more or less friction occasioned by this condition of things cannot be .denied if we credit the various rumors heard on tho street, and i t looks very much as if the friends of both parties had started a boome- rang which the Board of Control is likely to settle in short order. , We showed a copy of the memorial to Dr. Collier, to a member of the board to-day and asked him what h e had t o say about it. He replied ' It the statements contained in the memorial are true, certainly the fact of their truth must have been unknown to al- most every person whose uame is signed to the paper.\ When asked \What effect will the presen- tation of this memorial have on the hoard?\ he replied, \I do'n'ot see an y relation be- tween the memrjrral ;and t'hJB' dutigs 'of the board of control. The board is not interested in any personal difficulties between mem- bers of the staff at the Station,, except BO far a* they interfere wil|h the efficiency of the work.\ * * Asked again, \ Has Doctor Van Slyke ever been considered as a possible successor to Doctor Collier? answer, \No do notthink the board or any member has ever consider- ed hini in the line of succession, '• and he added,\ you may be quite certain the board will be a unit as they always, have been in doing what they consider for tjhe best int rest of the station and the state and will not V e moved by any motives of politics or sentimont. Possibly the injudicious action of would-be friends may have created a crisis, but per- sonal!) it will have no effect on m y own a. turns as I believe it was done with goud motive*.\ The Tailors Return to Work. NEW YORK, July .11.—About 1,500 tailors of the protective Brotherhood resumed work this mining. The strikers stated that many of the contaactors wh o have signed the new contract an prominent members.of the contractors association. The contractors deny positively that thsir ranks have been broken, and con- tinue to state that they Will not grant any concessions to the strikers. The strike is being conducted in a very orderly manner, and s o far not a single arrest has been made among the strikers. The strik- ers, as a whole, Boent to be very well satisfied wi h the course affairs are taking, and aro verj ruiilident of success.

MANY OOUTBAOTOES SETTLING. r&e 81 rllio Proceeding: In an Orderly Blituiier and Employes 'Are Confi- dent That Their Demands Will Be Conceded. Strikers Jlleet. NEW YORK, July 81.—The tailors'strike is still on, although upwards of 1,500 em- ployes have returned to work, having se- cured what they asfee'd lor from the con- tractors. All day long- the settlement I mmitteo of tho brotherhood wa s busy it thoir Grand street headquarters with the contractors, talking over an d signing tho now agreement, which displaces tho piece work 6ystom, an d i n its place creates a weekly scale of wages. More than 100 contractors have signed the ne w agree- ment. Th e settlement committoa will continue to hold sessions daily until all the contractors have ha d ample opportun- ity' to sign the new agrocniqnt, Tho striking tailors gathered i n a great mass meeting in Cooper Union hall, and after listening to speeches by these load- ers, adopted resolutions endorsing the strike. Tho meeting was undgr the auspices of the Brotherhood of Tailors and tho hall was crowded to suffocation. Charles P. RPichers, president\ of the United G.irment Workers of America, presided. In his opening speech the chair- man said: \Wo must win this fight or> lose what we havo already gained. Wo must do away with the tenement houso evil—tho crowding of hard workers in tho sweat shops and the systom which allows that iniquity. Last year w e did away with tho tack system. It was a hard flght and a long one. This year we must do away with the system that permits the contrac- tors to bleed our workers. W e must deal direct with tho mannfi.oturers. It will be a hard thin g to do, bn t we arc going to do it. Wo will suiely succeed.\ Thero was a good deal of applause dur- ing Boicher's addtos>, whloh burst into a storm when ho introduced Snmnol Goni- pors, tho national labor leader, as the next speaker. Gimipors started in by declaring that thepreseut striko by tho tailors was in line with the goneral movement of the workingmen all over the country for loss hours of labor. \Why you even work on Sundays nn- der the proscnt oppression,\ he went on. \Sunday is for rest. This movement of yours is against going down in the social Bcale. It is t o make you sharers of tho re- sults of your toil.\ Chairman Reiehers thon introduced Meyer S/hnenfeld, the organ'ZT of tho union, who made an address in Hebrew. Mpyer Hohoen'ild, m'be ci.ur-e of his roinni'k?, urgvil upon tho strikers the ab- soltiti- neaps'ty of upholding their pusl- t;i> i as mcinhors' of tho Biothorhood of Tailor^ against the attomptB of the con- •fcfttoGprs to force them to work longor hours for a minimum ealnry.

Manitoba Schools Under Consideration. SEEKS COMPROMISE A Peaceful Settlement of the Difficulty Desired. WORKING OF PRESENT ACT The Communication to the Manlto- ban Government Will Be Treated Respectfully and be Con- sidered Carefully. NEW YORK, July 31.—A Times special from Winnipeg, Manitoba, says: Lord Aber- deen, (}, v. General of Canada, having con- cluded his conference with John Sbultz, governor of Manitoba, and Premier Green- way left for the west ; esterdny. His lord- ship declined to be interviewed on the sub- ject of the ci uference. Premier Ureemvay, however, upon being asked for a brief statement, dictated this: The Dominion Govt rntnent, through its official bead, has transmitted to the Manitoba government a communication in regard to the 1 estoration of Catholic parochial schools in Manitoba. This communication is in the form of a request that the Manitoba government shall -ay what it can offer in the way of a com- promise on the school question; or in other words, that it shall make some suggestion for a peaceful settlement of the difficulty. There was no mention or suggestion in the communication of a n official visitation or committee of inquiry into the working of he present school act, compared with the results of the old system of education.\ To the question whether the Manitoba government would agree to a compromise, Premier Greenway made this reply;. \The •omtnauication will be treated respectfully, and .arefully considered.\ SPORTING EVENTS.

PEOPLE VERY KIND TO HER Yet She Is Gone and a Frantic Husband Can Find no Trace of His Missing Wlfe-A Messenger From the .Dead. BOSTON, MASS., Jul y 31 Enough has be come known about Mrs. Gardiner, of Arca- dia, Ne •., who disappeared in Boston dur- ing the week of the Christian Enveavo convention, to make the case one of the most perplexing that the police have had to deal with in a long time. Evei y antecedent circumstance in the woman's life is against the presumption that she has deserted her imsband and three children. She left home with her ticket and $100. in her pocket. No 1 ne ;cnme with her to that part of the state, and during the long journey she was practically alone. The night of her arrival July 1 Ith, she sent this letter to her tuiBbam:! \I am all right and at a house where Michigan people are to be entertained, if theycome. I did not have uny trouble in (jetting a place. My money will do me nicely.\ The day before her supposed death, July 13th, she sent a letter which says in part: \Dear Husband: My day has been well spent, and i t is over a t lust. Iiitid that my strength is hardly equal to tue meetings of i.he Endeavorers, and every one else seems so well. Really it i s very hard work, and I need lots of strength and determination. 1 have enough of the latter to last me through I think. People here are very kind to me.\ That night, according to the evidence in the lett r, she was taken very ill and on the Sunday following died. She realized that ner end was near, an d wrote a third letter to her husband, beginning: It has come at last \ saying she was dying and bidding him and her children an affectionate farewell.\ The next day, July 14, another letter was written signed Mrs. M. J. Brown, South Boston, which said in brief: I have sad news t o tell yon. Your wife passed away at 7 o'clock p. m., Sunday. Saturday evening and Sunday she was very ill, and we t sked for advice in the case, but it wa s too late. Sold effects, and enclose a i-ing nnd pin which she got ready herself. James W. 4 Landers, of Arcadia, is here looking into the case. He says that tb. news of Mrs. Gardiner's death was unques- tionably accepted i n Arcadia at first, and Mr. Gardiner at once started for Boston to claim the body. Ht, could not find any trace of the place where his wife stopped, and re- turned home in despair. Funeral services in memory of the missing woman were held in Arcadia. Inquiry thus far failed to discover any M- J. Brown in South Boston or elsewhere, and no Mrs. Brown who knew anything about the case. PHELPS HOLDS THE FORT. The Canandalguas Were Beau n the Bat. at BU-RBAU OF THE TIMES, P helps, J dy 81,180.1. EOWABD KIKK, Manager. The home ground seems to be the strong- hold for the Phelps base ball club, as may possibly be the case with the Genevas. I'm htler of course had a right to crow lustily and loud over the complete blinder bestowed upon Phelps Monday afternoon, but they cannot ignore the f-ict that they were 1 ffei-tively repulsed by the Phelps battel j on Saturday. Yesterday afternoon the Canandalgnas were treated in the same fashion by a score of 0 tofa in favor of the home team. Dooley took the bat a t the opening and was given his base on balls. Robert* followed with one-bagger sending Dooley to second, fro a which he stole fiird, Leak sent a fine fly t o right field and was put out by Marks to Fergensen, Dooley scoring. Roberts finished the second trying to steal third and got out, and Namack went out on a strike. Pison of the Canandaiguas made a safe base hit an d was brought in by C. Fahy and Fergensen who were both put out» Billiard took his base on balls and Massettb died at 1st. In the second inning Case struck out, New- and made a two-bngger, reached 3rd on n base bit by Middaugh and the home plate on a tw o base bat by Meeban. Hicks and Dooley were caught out. Harris scraped the clouds but was caught in centre field, J Fahy and Saxton also perishing in quid, succession.
