STRIKE AT CHICAGO.
Walkout of Telegraphers May Spread
to Windy City.
Chicago, July 10. Chicago will, in
all probability, be the next large city
to feel the telegiaphcrs strike. Just
at the time when ace prospecta seem
ed brightest, I'leaiilent (Mint 1 1 announc
es his (Ivterminatlon to trcal the
strike. Commissioner Neil I jrul the
executive committee of the internation
al union are on their way to San Fiau
ciaoo to counsel peace and attempt to
bring alxmt a settlement, while Presi-
lent Small will start from the coast
tomorrow to spread the movement. A
telegram received from him tonUht
says he will be here Minuav. 1 hat is
the date set 'or a meeting of the union
here, and it is almost certain a strike
against laith the Postal and Western
Union companies; will be then declared.
Tea-grams havo been sent to intercept
Nelll and the executive committee, ami
they will probably return, as there is
no prospect for peace. The sudden
warlike attitude Is due to the refusal of
the Western Union at Han FranciHco to
confer with the union, as a union. It
will be necesaary, before a strike la
called here, to obtain tho consent of the
international executive board.
What course w ill be pursued by Com
missioner of Labor Neill was a subject
for much simulation today. It Is said
that while in Chicago he mdae it plain
to the union oflicials that "war talk"
and threats against the Wejtern Union
Telegraph company would only serve to
hinder him in bringing both sides to
gether on a peace basis.
