I AIM TO STOP POWER PLANTS
Subway and "L" Service Maintained -Surface
Lines Crippled Shonts Says Demand
Would Cost $5,000,000 More a Year.
Against the advice of Sumuel Gompcrs the chief's of the
big federated labor organizations that control perhaps 700,000
wage earners recommended last night, at their conference in
the Hotel Continental, a general sympathetic strike as the surest
way to force the New York transportation companies to accept
the unionizing of their employees.
The conference which overrode Mr. Gompers's temperate
suggestions was made up of representatives from the New York
Central Federated Union, the Brooklyn Central Labor Union,
the New York State Federation of Labor and the Amalgamated
Association of Street and Electric Railway Employees.
Recommendation of a sympathetic strike to affect every
trade and activity which could possibly help the striking street
railway men or injure or annoy the street railway lines and
the Interborougli will reach these bodies this morning and they
are expected to act at once.
Unionists Predict General Industrial Tieup.
Whnt they will do is prolilumati
cnl. The lubor chiefs nt the Hotel
Continental last night talked largely
of certain success, insisting that a
few days will sec a general tieup of 1
all sorts of trades, together with al
tremendous expansion of the strike ,
on the t-urfacc lines, in the subway 1
and upon the elevated.
On the other hand, it appears' to'
he the fact that all they really ex-
pect is to paralyze work in the great
power houses that give impetus to
cms and train., and to draw into
the controveis. a very few other
trades actively connected with the
operation of the transportation sys-'
terns in New York, New Hochelle
and Mount Vernon. '
Theodorn P. Shonts, president of the .
lnlerbntniigli and upon whoso shoul
ders ha.s fallen tho task of lighting the
massed forces, of labor unionism,
seemed neither surprised nor down
cast at the news from the labor war
conference at the Continental,
Mr. Shonts says In so many vvordw
that the tight might as well cony now
as later; that It is ridiculous, tn mako
any further contracts with men who
cynically break every agreement; that
tho whole labor union drive against the
street ear svstcm.s Is not for the pur-!
pose of bettering wages or conditions
but to enforce unionism an the closed
shop upon the Urns, and tills ho and
his directors will not tolerate.

Gnnipers's Attitude Astonishes,
There was astonishment when, after
the conference ended at 0 ;30 P, M., it
was found that the htatenunt IssumJ by
Pamne! (lumpers contained no recom
mendation for a s) nip.ithellc strike nr
any note of approval of a general valk
tin. and th-t the separate statement
sued by Hugh Fray tie. chairman o( tho
conference committee, dtilnltely and dis
tinctly called tor a sympathetic sttik"
and 1. 1II1 n to imitulo even a compllmiii
tary relet ence to Mr. (lompers, who hid
been inv.ted here especially to help th;
li.ral unlo'i men solve their problem.
There weie superficial Indications of
friction, hints that thn conference hail
ind been peaceful, ruiiwrs that Mr. Com
pers had bfl the meeting In nnger
after doing what ho considered was hH
.liitv. imnt'ovhur nf thn strlka nrlncliile
I but promising only the "moral support
and financial assistance or lauor,
Thn tension was so marked after the
meeting bioko up that the labor leaders,
Mr. Fraynr und William H. Fltrgerabl.
general organizer fur tho Amalgamated
and director of the strlko on surface
lines, subway and elevated, rsenter any
questions ns to what Mr. (lonipers's at
titude hud been.
They characterized all such questions
as unfair and Impertinent. They nnd
their associates threw back their shoul
ders In asserting that this was a loc-tl
situation und that Mr. CJompers had no
powet whatever. '
