CHICAGO. Aug. SO. Shop, crafts
leaders remaining i Chicago in the
absence of B. M. Jewell, head of
. the striking shopmen, and other of
ficers of the six unions, who are
still in Xew York in connection
with peace negotiations, tonight ex
pressed belief that the strike would
end this week.
Among these was John Scott, secretary-treasurer
of the shopmen's
organization. Mr. Scott said he
based his optimism largely on a let
ter received from President Jewell,
who reported prospect of early set
tlement as "good."
However. Mr. Scott scouted a re
port that President Jewell already
had ent out a notice to general
chairmen that the workers probably
m would be ordered back to work "not
later than Monday."
"Any such order," he said, "would
come to the- headquarters here first,
ard we would send them out."
The report as to this notice orig
inated in a press dispatch from Ard
more, Okla. . '
Msdill McCormick, United States
yenator, arriving in Chicago today,
said a conversation with a man
who attended joint conferences1 be
tween railway executives and chiefs
of the bisr four brotherhoods, led
him t believe a settlement may be
expected this week.
J. F. McGrath, vice-president of
tile strikers' organization, tonight
issued a statement in which he said
the strike continues to spread on
the Pennsylvania and New York
Central railways, despite reports to
Officials of the Santa Ve railway

RETURN ORDER IS DENIED
Union Heads Hare No Knowledge
of Reported Instructions.
CHICAGO, Aug. 20. (Bv the As
sociated Press.) Officers of the
railway employes' department of the
American Federation of Labor to
day denied all knowledge of lnstruc
tions reported sent by B. M. Jewell,
head of the striking shop crafts,
telling general chairmen to hold
themselves in readiness to call off
the strike. Shop crafts officials said
it was impossible that Mr. Jewell
couia nave sent the telegram re
ported received at Ardmore. Okla.

he was the union representative at

gether all members and hold them
in readiness to return to their
places ordered vacated by me July
1." read the telegram that was tele
phoned to an Ardmore newspaper
irom a man who said he was Scags.
"We want no delay in getting back
on our jobs. We are confident call
will not be later than Monday." The
message had Mr. Jewell's name
signed to it and was addressed to all
general chairmen of the federated
Shop crafts officials at strike
headquarters here said that in case
a decision was reached to call off
the strike it would not be according
to union procedure for Mr. Jewell to
send such a telegram and even had
he sent it n would have been
code or would have been preceded
oy tne coae messages.
The name of the man who said he
received the message is not listed
among the general chairmen. John
Scott, secretary of the federated
shop crafts, said.
wnile union officials maintained
the situation was too critical to in
dulge in speculation concerning a
settlement. Senator Medlll McCor
mick, who arrived in Chicago from
me eti, in a statement said ne was
nopeful of settlement.
1 talked to a man who attended
the meeting between brotherhoods
executives and railroad officials in
Xew York last week," Senator Mc
Cormick said, "and this man said
that a settlement of the rail strike
within a week seemed assured as a
result or isew York meetings.

The caravan's progress was easy
yesterday and over paved roads for
the most part. The first event of the
day after the departure from Eu
gene "Was a detour from Monroe
which took the caravan through the
great Oako orchards there. After a
brief stop in Monroe, the caravan
proceeded to Corvall.'s under "escort
of a committee of Corvallis citizens
who had come out tomeet it. The
campus of Oregon Agricultural-college
was toured and then Mayor N.
H. Moore welcomed the caravan at
meeting in the park block. C. E.
Ingalls, editor of the Gazette-Times,
had arranged with the pastors of
the churches to dismiss their con
gregations a little earlier than
usual, and a good attendance at the
caravan meeting resulted.
Mayor Baker Speaks.
Mayor Baker made one of his
characteristic speeches advocating
co-operation throughout all of Ore
gon by all of its people, and Otto R
Hartwig explained the exposition
amendment to go on the ballot.
Walter Jenkins sang "Mv Oregon."
At Albany the caravan had lunch
eon. E. r. Cusick was chairman of
the reception committee. 'An out
door meeting was held practically
oenticai witn tne corvallis meet
ing, and sti another was held at
Salem. . . .
Some 23 cars comprised the offi
cial caravan as it sped from Port'
land toward Hood River the after
noon of Saturday, August 12. In the
procession that whirled down Sixth
street into the city last night were
only 12 cars. -
Pace-Maker Goes 140O Miles.
The pace-making car had covered
almost 1400 miles, though the orig
inal schedule listed the journey as
one lHOO miles long. The difference
was accounted for by numerous de
tours from the original itinerary
and various little side trips made
for one reason or another.
Several cars had developed such
mechanical troubles that they
dropped from the party soon after
it started.- Some two or three cars
failed to arrive from Salem with the
party because delayed by troubles
in the previous 12 hours. At least
one car had sped on to Portland
direct from southern Oregon, ar
riving Saturday. The official pho
tographer's car, manned by George
U. Sanderson, best known as
"Sandy," had left the caravan at
Salem and hurried to Portland to
get the final motion picture record
as the cars arrived here. This car
reached the city just before 6:30
o'clock and parked before the old
postoffice building to await the
coming of the caravan.

Quit knocking your neighbor and

lay George L. Baker, mayor of Port
land, in his final address on the last
lap of the 1925 exposition caravan.
Upon the arrival of the caravan in
Salem it had covered approximately
1400 miles and had visited many of
the more important sections of the
Prank Deckebach, member of the
1925 exposition committee, presided
at the meeting here and introduced
Dr. F. L. Utter, who, in the absence
of Mayor Halvorsen, delivered the
address of welcome. "
Or. Utter said the caravan had
proved a peacemaker as well as a
pacemaker, and that the visit of
the Portlanders to Salem would have
the effect of wiping out those dif
ferences which had been injected
into the exposition campaign. "Al-
tnougn saiem was the battleground
of the exposition factions in the
start, the progressive people of this
section hope to see the fair a suc
cess," said Dr. Utter. "Orego'nians
should boost for Oregon, and the
exposition is an Oregon product."
The caravan, on the way to Port
land, made a brief stop at the state
