CHANCES FOR SETTLEMENT OF
CINCY CAR STRIKE BETTER
Cincinnati, May 16. Service was
resumed on two more street car lines
today, tied up tfy the strike of 2,000
motormen and conductors. Four po
licemen guarded each car, and hun
dreds protected the routes. Three
lines out of forty are now in opera
tion. Chances for a settlement of the
strike brightened this afternoon
when strike leaders announced that
"union recognition," demanded be
fore the strikers will agree to arbi
tration, does not necessarily mean a
closed shop. With this concession on
the part of the strikers, it is believed
that negotiations between the com
pany and its employes will fie re
sumed. Twenty thousand union men this
afternoon paraded tQ, the National
