JUDGES' RULING BRINGS LULU
IN LABOR STORM
Arbitration of the troubles of the
plasterers by Judges Gemmill, New-
comer and Sullivan brought a tem
porary lull in the labor storm today.
The judges decided that the agree
ment signed Feb. 17 should have kept
the men on their jobs until their diffi
culties could have been settled.
The claim of the labor men was
that when the lathers were locked
out the plasterers could not work
with nonunion men. The judges de
cided that the plasterers should have
been notified when their fellow-workmen
were shut out and that they
could not have worked under condi
tions" they were.
The success of the arbitration has
caused the hope that the other nu
merous labor troubles may be arbi
trated as well. Another meeting will
be held at 10 o'clock tomorrow.
That a general misunderstanding
of the difference between the labor
men and their employers is the cause
of most of the trouble was the opin
ion of the judges. They advocated
publishing the claims of each party,
so that the arguments could be
quietly reviewed and hasty action
"The board learns from the evi
dence of all parties that the contract
controversy has not been generally
published, and we are unanimously of
the opinion that that may have con
tributed at least to some extent to the
differences now existing, and we
would recommend that hereafter any
contract entered into between par
ties be generally published, so that
each member of the respective -par-,
ties may have a copy thereof, that
there may be no misunderstanding,"
