Telegrams encouraging to the strikers
were received at union headquarters
late Thursday- night. - One was from
Miss Julia O'Connor in Washington, I,

were near. The message follows!
."Conditions here extremely favorable

These telegrams are Interpreted by lo
cal union officials to mean that the end
of the strike is very near. If the fun
demands of the strikers are granted, the
strike may be called off as fast as tele
grams can travel. If, howevet con
cessions are made by tne sinners- rep
resentatives, then the settlements must
be put to a referendum vote which must
travel by mail to the union headquar
