ered the ultimatum of tho men, de
clining to consider the railroad prop

The railroad's answer to tho mon's
demandrt was a toutatlvo offer of
compromise, granting tho eight hour
day and overtime, providing tho
doublo compensation rule. Is wiped
out. In other words, tho railroads
maintain that If tho men desire n
