Return of strikers and improvement

first session to consider wages de

In the New York district there were
conflicting reports concerning the
number of men who had returned aft

would expire tomorrow noon. Some
roads announced that strikers were
flocking back but others reported

Some brotherhood officials express

ultimatum as a challenge and protons

With passenger service generally
imnroved throughout the country, in
creased freight shipments were report
ed In the New York and New England
districts. New England points report

he was from the first the genius that
promoted the popular use of the tele

Mr. Vail was 31 years old when Alex
ander Graham Bell invented the tele
phone, and, notwithstanding his age,
he was filling the' responsible post of
general superintendent of the railway
mail service. Still earlier, however, he
had been a telegraph operator, and,
interested In the possibilities of elec
trical communication, he had visions
that Bell's "toy'' would some day be a
great factor in American life. Bell and
his associates had equal faith in Mr.
Vall's organising genius, for he had al
ready made a name for himself as an
organiser In the promotion of the rail
way mail service, and he was readily
Induced to resign his government post
to become the general manager, in
1878, of the first American Bell Tele
Even the most optimistic backers of
the telephone then thought that the in
vention would serve only for local com
munication, but Mr. Vail had visions ot
Its long distance use. It was he who
Inagurated successive steps ot inter
city communication. The first lint
from Boston to Providence was ridi

of the persons who Indulged In the
ridicule at that time lived to see Mr.
Vail telephone, not only from Boston
to Providence, but from New York to
San - Francisco, in 1015, thirty-five
years later. Further, In October in
