TO PREVENT STRIKE
Washington, Mai, 14.,-Thnt Pres
idem Wilson will take a hand to
check fulfillment of the railroad
strike orders, was the belief here to
day. Some believed he would wait
until after tomorrow's session In New
York between brotherhood chiefs and
railroad managers, but others
thought he might before then make
some kind of announcement aimed at
stalling off the great Industrial strife.
His advisers early today did not
know certainly, though, what he may
have In mind.
The president's condition appeared
to be better today, but everything Is
being done to relieve him from men
tal and physical strain. He Is still
very weak from his grippe attack.
The brotherhoods professed before
leaving for 'New York last night to
be grimly set upon carrying out their
strike plans should th manager fall
to grant their demands. The union
men say that their "progressive
strike" Is so as to give as little Incon
venience and suffering to the public
its possible, compatible with winning
their own cause.
They point out that they have open
ly notified the president that the
strife would not be carried to a finish
If war came.
