TO DELAY STRIKE
Railroads Will Apply for In

Federal law to tie Invoked br the
railroads to Interpose a double block on
the plan of the trainmen's brotherhoods
to tie up tho railroad trafflo of the
country next Monday morning. The
first of the obstructive methods will be
an effort to gain n delay of the strike
tluoiigh Injunction. It Is expected such
delay will go far toward breaking the
backbone of the strike, which ticces-
sarlly depends on concerted action for
effectiveness. The. second means will be
In tho uso of thi courts to force at
least 100,000 of the strikers to man their
train despite the. brothehnods' edict.
Until these methods, devised as a pri
mary step by the railroad board of
strategy now In t ashlngton, were
