The final as sault on the positions held by the republicans in Sackvllle street was begun at 9 o'clock this-morning and was still continuing nearly an hour later. The other areas held by the in surgents in various parts of this city were occupied- by the Free Staters during the night.

Despite the great danger from stray bullets, a large crowd is watching the fighting from a dis tance. Details of the operations of the national corps, as revealed in the latest official communiques, are regarded as pointing to Impaired morale on the part of the Irregu lars and to- the rapid crumbling ot their defenses when seriously at tacked.

Journal July 4 closed all day MINERS FIRM IN STAND FOR LIVING SCALE Owners and Labor Fail To Reajh Agreement In Third Conference Held At "Capital Washington, July 8. (By As sociated Press.) Deadlocked over a basis of negotiating a settlement of the bituminous coal strike, the conference of operators and miners workers officials accepted the sug gestion of government representa tives today and, adjourned unti next Monday. Lines of differences were drawn more tightly than ever today when representatives of bituminous operators and officials of the strik. ing coal miners union went into their third joint conference in company with secretaries Hoover and Davis. Prior to the meeting ifwas evi dent that the operators intended to force some sort of a conclusion today without yielding to their re fusal to meet the union for the purpoes of making up a national or semi-national wage scale. From the views of John L. Lewis, presi dent of the United Mine Workers, sider It necessary to prolong the it was evident that the miners con- strike rather than agree to nego tiate for district wage scales. Operators Are Defiant At a lengthy meeting by them selves, the bituminous operators' representatives prepared a resolu tion incorporating their view, and although its detail was held confidential - it was understood that if the joint conference broke up today, the , operators had de termined to open a large number of union mines in former union territory on a non-union basis on Wednesday. The principal property so under stood to be ready for opening was a 6,000 ton dally capacity mine of the Pittsburgh Coal company in Pennsylvania. Various other mines in strategic points through out the central coal field were also understood to be selected for im mediate operation. Officials Are Hopeful The, old wage scale calls for a base wage of $7.50 per day under ground, while the mines that will open are expected to offer to miners the 1917 scale, which has a base of about $5 a day undbT- ground. Both the union officials and operators seem to be fully In formed of each others' determ ination, and the only doubt re mainder concerned the govern. ment's proposal. Secretary of Labor Davis appear ed still hopeful before the meet ing and was again the chief source of the impression that the admln lstratlon would intervene further before letting the gathering fail of accomplishing a strike settle ment. Positions Are Forfeited. The board requested employes remaining in the service and the carriers to take steps immediately to form new organizations for the purpose of representing the shop men before the-board.

With the call ot the river al OPEN SHOP IS PROPOSED TO BREAKJTRIKE Action of Way Men Is Now Awaited By Heads of Lines Affected By General Strike. Chicago, July 8. (By Associ ated Press.) Railway strike In terest, which centered over the week-end on the shopmen 's walk out Saturday, today turned to developments dependent upon the canvass, at Detroit, of the strike vote of 400,000 maintenance ot way employes and acting by their union officials. A potential railroad crisis far more acute tnan any foreseen threat to traffic by a strike ot shop crafts alone, hinged on the couree taken by the maintenance of way men. A strike by main tenance employes would double the number of railway strikers and more than double the effectiveness of the suspension. Situation Is Acnte Should the clerks, freight hand lers and signal men join the walk out, the total number of railway employes called off their jobs would aggregate approximately 1,200,000. Edward F, Orable, president of the maintenance employes, who returned to Detroit after cohfer ences with officials of other unions, kept his promise to the railroad labor board to hold strike orders in abeyance until today at least, although the vote of his union was reported to be over whelmingly in favor of a Btrike. The key to the strike situation was apparently held this morning by President Brable upon whom hope was banked of averting furthei walkouts. t Union Men Pleased Claims on the completeness of the effectiveness of the shopmen's strike differed according to the sources. Union officials asserted that the walkout was virtually 100 per cent and would seriously hamper railroad operations. Rail way executives on the other hand tentatively fixed 90 per cent as the maximum number ot strikers among the 401,000 men In. the shop crafts and declared that over the week It had heen impossible to check up and determine the num ber of men who responded to the strike order. In some rail centers, plans were in preparation for replacing strik ers with workers Under open shop arrangements. The railroad labor board which failed in Its efforts to forestall the walkout last week, today marked time pending further developments. SWgfhit damage resulted iSatur day night when an automobile driven by A. P. Chamberlain, of Loa Angelas, was struck by a car driven by Hubert Budd. No one was Injured according to a report made to tho police. most too loud to be Ignored five Salem lads who elected to go swimming worried little when they remembered they had no bathing suit.
