RAILWAY STRIKE IN
BRITAIN IS ENDED
Companies to Arbitrate Differ
encos With Men, Who Have
Returned to Work.
. London. A great wave of relief
wept over the country when shortly
attar 11 o'clock the announcement
was rnnde from the board of trade of
fices that the railway strike had been
settled and that the men would re
turn to work immediately.
The settlement followed a day and
a night of fierce rioting. This was
especially so In portions of Scotland
and Wales, -where the military and po
lice were absolutely defied by the
workers, who bitterly resented the in
terference of the government, which
had manned the signal boxes and
trains by railroad men drafted from
the ranks of the red coats.
It also came in time to prevent an
absolute famine in many cities which
depend on the railroads for the food
supply. The fact that bread riots
"were threatened In many places and
that cotton unlll employes in the great
centers of the north and the Scottish
and Welsh miners were preparing to
lay down their tools, caused the gov
ernment officials to bring the strong
est pressure on both sides to consent
Most of t,he credit for the ultimate
success of the efforts toward peace
appears -to rest with David Lloyd
George, chancellor of the exchequer,
who worked for conciliation when all
others of the interested parties
seemed to have given it up.
