In his telegram to the electrical
workers Mr. Donovan advised member
to return to work, with the assurance
that if demands are not granted an
other walkout may be arranged. Some
of the workers expressed the view
that latest developments will be found
a ruse to get strikers back to work
until such time as telephones pass out
of government control, after which the
companies will ba free to take such
action ii theydeem proper. This view
was not general among the men.
The telephone employes, according to
Instructions from San Francisco, are to
return to work under the scale guaran
teeing a minimum of IS per day for men
and tit per week for girls, which scale
became effective June IS, and was an
nounced here the day the operators left
their switchboards. Electrical workers
art not informed as to re-classification
of men, they said yesterday, but
said they were satisfied the reclassifi
cation, would not cause any of their
number to work for less than per
General Confidence Felt.
The fact that the two western" dele
gates to the Washington conference
had been ordered to stop off at Spring
field. III., en route has led to the belief
here that retroactive pay and other de
mands are assured.
That the feeling of the workers Is
prevalent in other quarters is shown
by a letter from W. K. Woodward,
chairman . of the state conciliation
board, to Governor Olcott. expressing
thanks for prompt action taken in re
sponse to appeals made by the board.
It says:'
"Thanks are due you fofyour very
prompt action in the matter of the
telephone strike. The morning paper
brings news of a form of adjustment
which. If true, does not in any way ap
peal to my persona V conception of the
rights of the men and women who are
out. However, resumption of work, even
under unsatisfactory conditions, may
lead to later and better consideration."
Owine to the sudden turn of events.
the mass meeting that was to have been
held in central library hall last night
was postponed Indefinitely.
Force Quits While Talk or Settle,
