Union leaders met behind locked
doors yesterday and completed
plans for the great railroad strike,
which has been called for 6 o'clock

The first strike blow will be felt at
the following places: The entire Chi

Lines (except the Michigan Central),
the B. & 0., Erie, Atlantic Coast line,
Southern Railway, Louisville &
Nashville and the Seaboard Air Line.

its sheets with reports that the
Kansas City and Denver locals,
among others, were opposed to the
strike order and might refuse to walk
out. Delegates from these locals in
sisted their members would comply
with the order.

which he insisted his belief that his
employes would not strike. He said
he believed the men on other lines
entering Chicago "would remain
loyal" to their employers. Brother
