the news of walkouts all over this
section responding to the strike or
der. Charleston and Tampa reported
at 7 o'clock that every man on duty
had walked out. Wlpston-Salem wired
that every telegrapher was out and
the offices permanently closed. Spar
tanburg sent a similar message.
Charlotte wired that every man on
duty .with the exception of three of
fice messengers, not telegraphers, had
answered the strike call. New Or
leans wired that a large percentage
was out. Other messages were re
ceived announcing complete walkouts
and the closing of offices.
The order for a general walkout
in all Southeastern States was issued
late yesterday afternoon by Interna
tional President S. J. Kbnenkamp, of
the Commercial Telegraphers' Union
and Telephone Operators1 Association.

The "strike breakers' special" from
New York, which came in .over the
Southern railway last eyening, was
met and" stopped aC'Chairfblee by the
Western Union officials, with auto
mobiles to drive them into the city.
On account of the large crowds who
were gathered both at Brookwood
Station and the Terminal Station
awaitin g the arrival of -the strike
breakers, it was found advisable to
remove them from the train before
reaching Atlanta and spirit them into
the city secretly.. No violence has
been threatened, however, and only,
small committees bad been sent by
the union to meet "and inform them
that a strike was on here.
Officials of both telegraph and
telephone companies expressed pleas

former owners might be1 free to make
a fight against the union.

The police believe that the man
was given some aid In locating the
Palmer home when he arrived here
about an hour before the explosion
on Monday night. That the. terrorist
was met by some confederate at
Union Station and accompanied to R

are following up this theory.
While the police last night con

said this morning.
