CHICAGO, July 22. (By the Asso

sues now prevent a possible settle-
". ment of the railway shopmen's
strike, B. M. Jewell, head of the
railway employes department of the
American Federation of Labor said
in a statement tonight. These is
sues, he said, are found in the re

discontinue contracting work; (2)
to establish a national board of ad-

losses to the railroads, to the com

upon that small but dominating
group representing the New York

Pointing out that the railroad

; practice of contracting railroad
work in certain cases, Mr. Jewell
, asserted that the Erie railroad, the

"Manyi other roads," the statement

of the three issues on which a strike
