CHICAGO TEAMSTERS' STRIKE.
Question aa to How Many Striking
Tmtr Will B Reinstated.
Chicago, May 20. Oplnfona vary aa
to th number of atrlker who will be
reinstated now that the teamstcra1
strike practically I ended, but th gen
eral belief I that IS per cent Is ft con
servative figure. This estimate comes
largely from union sources.
The employers maintaining that the
Employers' Teaming Col pan y was a
permanent Institution, placed the per-
centage of striker who would get thetr
old place back at even ft lower figure.
Th Employer' Teaming Company
will employ no union men at all.
The total number of men on strike,
Including 500 helpers, at the end, is
2772. From th moat trustworthy
estimates 1300 of these will get their
places back In the course of time, leav
ing 2472 who will hav to seek oth?r.
