New York, Jan. 2. In pursuance
of the Invitation sent by President
Harrlman to the leaders of tho strik
ing Union Pacific bollermakers, to
meet him In conference, President
McNeil, of the International Boiler-
maKers union, and president u uon-
noil, of the International Machlnlts'
Union, arrived In this city today.
Other labor leaders interested In
tho strike situation on the Union Pa
cific are also here, and it Is thought
an early settlement will be reached,
owing to the intolerable condition of
traffic on tho Union Pacific.
The motive power Is absolutely un
fit for use. For six months no expert
work has been done on boilers and en
gines ,on account of tho strike. Poor
workmen, boys, "scabs" and helpers
have patched up defects until now
-the power situation Is critical.
The Union Pacific has received In
timation from tho government that
mail contracts would be cancelled If
conditions do not immediately im
prove. The boileimakcrs have had the un
divided sympathy and support of all
other railroad organizations and they
can hold out all winter If necessary.
