Developments are Few
Chicago, April 26. Developments
In the strike of insurgent railroad
workers In the Chicago district today
were confined to issuance of state
ments by the railroad managers and
itrikers. The managers asserted 1892
men were at work yesterday, and that
freight traffic was 90 percent of nor
mal. The strikers asserted the num
ber of men the railroads said were at
work was less than one fifth the nor
mal number, that the industrial sit
uation rapidly was growing worse,
with l number of plants facing shut
downs because of lack of Tjoal, and
that a compromise would be forced
sooner or later.
Elsewhere in the central and far
west a gradual' return to normal
freight movement was reported.
"Blaekllstuig" Feared.
New York. Apr. 26. Fear of a
blacklist which would bar them per
manently from employment appeared
to be one of the driving forces today
behind the steady break of the rail
road workers strike reported by rail
road officials. .
No hint of such a plan has come
from the managers.
Officials of the lines continued today
their optimistic statements of last
week that traffic was fast returning to
normal and that the effect of the
strike would soonvholly disappear.

for a portion of each year In a flow

took his place in the flying boat at
the appointed hour. Another guest of
Pilot Walter E. Lees, was the Capi

given the pleasurable assignment for
the purpose of giving Journal readers
a sketch of the Cherry city.
Flying by air route has progressed
so much during recent years that to

the "sensations" Is not necessary.
There is a sensation however, and a
very agreeable one of safety and sta

passengers on this trip considered
themselves veterans, having made
flights previously, In land machines.
However they became converts of
this flight system when the Sea Gull
demonstrated that the hydroplane
glide obviated the jolting and oft
times distressing earth contact.
Once in the air, and away from the
water there is really no sensation of
movement. Although the, plane forges

The government's policy, as regards
the May day demonstration would in

Alt. Success .
' Not " a single feature entered Into
the day to mar the success of the oc
casion. -Responding as only thorough
public spirited citizens can hundreds
of Salemites were on hand with their
cars ready to do the bidding of the
city's guests.
; The delay of the Southern Pacific
train from the north, that bore sever
al hundred. visitors, caused some confusion-among
auto drivers, who de
parted without guests when the 'train
failed to come at the right time. The
visitors 'were picked up by drivers
later, however, and it was believed
today that no one who came to the
city to see' the blossoms went away
disappointed. -
Citizens Respond Nobly
Many citizens, anxious to do their
part and further the popularity of the
city and county as perhaps no other
means could have made more than
their quota of trips, some making as
high as eight tours with passengers
through the orchard areas. -'Although
blooms were not out as
fully as they miajht have been had

cloaked in their sheens of pink, white!

In spite of the fact that there were
more than 10,000 machines moving
through the city .and, t the outskirts
pot one accident or . collision was
brought to the attention of police.
Seaplane is Feature
At noon the seaplane, bearing Will
Carver, reporter of the Capital Jour
nal; and P. E. Fullerton, secretary
treasurer of the Webfoot Aircraft
company of Salem, soared over - the
city dropping a halo, of flowers and
blossoms. This was followed by num
erous other flights over the blossom
ing vales and hills around the city.
Signs placed along "Blossom way"
marked the route and the actual tour
of the cars through the county south
of Salem was made without confusion
or delay. After returning from the
trip many of the visitors visited state
More than 6000 persons from all
parts of the state, making more than
500 automobile loads of persons, aside
from the 100 or more automobiles
that were furnished by local citizens,
thronged to Salem during the day to
make the tour through JPhezland and
the vales of blooming orchard. The
coming of the trains did not repre

Fifteen hundred persons visited at
the state house during the day, and
615 curious sightseers climbed to the
top of the building and gazed over
the city and surrounding country
from the capitol dome.
