' C. F. OF L. CALLS THAT HEARST
BLUFF ON ARBITRATION

O'Donnell in his trap on that so
called'trades union edition, there was
a daily story in" the Examiner about
how union men' were taking an inter
est in it
When union labor all over town got
to slamming the Hearst-O'Donnell
deal, the Examiner got hard up for
news about the edition and began
running stories about the great fight

the impression that all union labor
that didn't bow down to O'Donnell
was fighting arbitration. Now the
Chicago Federation of Labor calls
Hearst's bluff by asking him to sub
mit his differences with union press
men to arbitration.
