Chicago Strike Will Be
!: Called Off.
Important Meeting of National
. Officers to Be Held
It I Expected That a Definite Con
clusion Will Be Rsaohed at Meeting
of the Federation of Labor and tho
Member of Striking Teamster.
Chicago, May 1. Although no. di
rect facts have transpired today to
warrant an absolute prediction, still
It is asserted both by the member of
the Employer association and by the
conservative element in the ranks of
th teamster who have taken an ac
tive Interest, that the atrlke wjll prob
ably be celled off within 48 hour and
certainly by the end of the week.
It la not likely that any definite
action looking to an adjustment of
the trouble will be taken before the
meeting of the national officers of the
union, which I expected to be held
t'pnorrowl Bamuef Oomper presi
dent of the Federation of Labor, ar
rived In tha city ttjhtghk and will
confer with the labor leader and de
cide upon the best method to be pur
sued and will call off the atrlke.
Chief among the cause which l?d
to the prediction of a settlement of
the strike Is the firm stand taken by
Mayor Dunne when In conference with
President Shea and officers of the lo
cal union.
The teamsters union will be aa
sued that any furlhw spread of the
strike will certainly make It necessary
for him to call out the troops. Presl
dent Gomper of the American Fed
ertlon of Labor, who reached the city
this evening, declares that there la
every hope that the end of the atrlke
Is not far distant
Early tonight, Immediately after
leaving the train, Oompers went' into
a conference with President Shea and
the local officials of the teamsters'
union. The employers' association and
express companies increased their
scope of deliveries still further today
and business for tho most part wa
transacted without hlnderance of any
kind.. Three hundred and fifty men
were brought to the cltyj today to
take' the places of strikers and as
many more are expected tomorrow,
At a meeting of the board of educa
tion tonight warrant were sworn out
for eight boys who have been leaden
In tho recent strike at the schools who
were In sympathy with the striking
teamsters. It was announced by the
superintendent of compulsory . educa.
tlon that he had information of the
effect of the strike at the schools and
that It had been Instigated by hood
lums, who told the pupils it was their
duty to refuse to attend school be
caues the school were buying coal
from tho wrong firms. Threat to ar
rest parents of those children who did
not attend school had the effect of
settling three strikes today and the
normal attendance Is expected tomor
After leaving the meeting of the la
bor leaders, Samuel Oompers met a
number of the team owners who stood
by tho unions and they Informed him
that the time had come when they
could no longer refuse to. deliver and
take goods from boycotted houses
without losing all of their business
and facing financial ruin. It la sold
that Gompers suggested to the team
sters? union that they allow the team
owners to do business with the boy
cotted firms. It Is expected that the
teamsters will accept the proposition
and In this manner the strike will be
called off.
