Bulletin.
Buffalo, N. Y., April 11. In re
sponse to complaints of many promi
nent citizens, the district attorney
today took action to present before
the grand jury evidence that the
street car company involved in the
strike had violated the law in employ
ing untrained motormen as strikebreakers.
Buffalo, N. Y., April 11. Striking
street car men "were offered rein
statement today by the company,
whether they had joined- union or,
not. The company offered within ten
days to receive committee of em
ployes and take up all grievances,
arbitrating if an adjustment was im
possible. Leaders of the strike objected to
the word "employes,"' demanding
that "association'.' be substituted for
it. On this one word the conference
deadlocked.
Conferences will be continued to
morrow,' when the state board of
mediation will investigate tne causes
of the strike. Officials of the com
pany and representatives of the
strikers will be heard.1 '
In declining to return to. work, and
present' their demands within ten
days, some of the strikers pointed out
that the. company in that time .could,
fortify, itself "for' a strike importing
strikebreakers, and then break off
negotiations with if semployes, dis
charging all who had joined the
union.
One hundred power and repairmen
struck today. The traction company
will be severely crippled if all the re
pairmen quit work.
At a meeting last night, at which
practically every union in the city
was represented, the executive board
of the central labor body was in
structed to work with the street car
men and to prepare for any action
that may be necessary to win the
traction strike. This was taken a
an indication that a general walkout
would be ordered if such action was
requested bythe street car strikers.
Cars were run on a few lines in
the city today. Militia guarded
power houses and car barns. . No
more troops have been sent to the
city.
