CHICAGO, March 14.—Both sides to
the controversy between the 25,000 Bre
men on the western railroads and the
railroad managers assumed an attitude
of waiting today, and While union offi
cials declared a strike seemed immi

dancer point was passed.
It is thought the managers' commit

manager of the fit. Kouix .<• Ban Fran
cisco railroad, will invite W. B. Carter,
president of the Brotherhood ofLOL'o
motive Firemen and Knginemen. and
his committee to another conference.
The brotherhood has Utken the posi
tion that unless all the questions In dis
pute are submitted to arbitration under
the Krdman act. a strike on all the
systems between Chicago and the Pa
cific coast would be necessary. The
railroads today reiterated their asser
tion that they would continue to re
fuse to submit to arbitration anything
but the waffs demand.
"We know a strike will not b<>
called." said O. 1./. Dickeson. assistant
to the president of th" Chicago, Rur

game is over. It is now only a question

"The railroads are trying to make
light of the situation." said President
Carter. "It Is Indeed critical. We have

The Santa Fe Is the only road operat

DENVER, March 14.—A. I>. Parker,
vice president and general manager of
the Colorado Southern railroad, and

Local union officials announced they

Should the men be called out it is

TO HEAL BREACH
ROOT UNABLE TO PLACATE
NEW YORK FACTIONS
WOODRUFF CLINGS TO OFFICE
OF STATE CHAIRMAN
Republican Leaders Fear Bitterness of
Political Row May Result in
State Being Won by
NBW YORK, March 14.—"Tho tame
and inconclusive ending of Senator
Hoofs brusque descent on New York"
found expression today In the cheerful
and bustling activity of Chairman
Timothy t,. Woodruff and the moody
countenances of the election captains,
who straggled from state headquarters
to county headquarters and then sat
down in back rooms to talk it over.
Chairman Woodruff was all smiles.
"I see," he said, "that the morning
papers quoted me today on my con
ference last night with Senator Root
as making but one comment, three
times repeated, with varying degrees
of emphasis—'ask Root.' That's right."
It la felt now that even the most
progressive and ambitious spirits be
lieved that for the present the policy
of those in charge will be to run with
the wind, keeping a sharp ey,- ahead
for reefs and breakers, pending the ar
rival of Theodore Roosevelt,
Woodruff will remain chairman, but
he does not say himself he will run
for that place again.
With the departure of Senator Root
today for Washington to inform Presi
dent Tart of the result of his confer
ences with State Chairman Woodruff
and the local Republican leaders on
the question of Woodruffs retirement
from the chairmanship, looms a politi
cal situation which in its larger mean
ing bears directly, not only on the
coming state campaign next fall, but
on the national campaign of 1912.
Fear Democratic Success
The administration, through Senator
Root, has made It clear to the party
leaders in this state that New York
must not be lost to the Democrats in
the gubernatorial election, for such a
defeat would endanger the party's suc
cess two years later.
To this i nd, Senator Root informed
Chairman Woodruff that the opposition
to Governor Hughes and his measures
must cease, and the suggestion is said
to have been directly made that the
federal power would be used to thwart
such opposition If it continued.
Whether Senator Root sought to
force Mr. Woodruff from the state
chairmanship as an initial step to
wrest control from the so-called "ma
chine" lawyers, was the subject of
much conjecture at Republican state
"I am still here," said Chairman
"There's much more than the chair
manship of the state committee in
volved in this matter," said an Up
state leader today. "President Tuft
and his friends are setting the stage
of the national campaign of 1013 and
the administration feels that unless the
president's state organization joins
with Governor Hughes a party split will
follow that will Rive, the state to the
Democrats next November."
Roosevelt May Be Leader
It is persistently asserted that in the
event of a threatened split Theodore
Roosevelt may be asked to assume the
leadership of the party.
A close adviser of Mr. Woodruff said
"The Hlnman-Green bill for direct
nomination won't go through, but the
bill drawn by the special committee,
which Is a modification of the Hlnman-
Green measure,' will bo accepted.
Chairman Woodruff tells me that the
stories told by certain congressmen In
Washington that Senator Allda is to
be whitewashed have no basis in fact."
MINERS WILL MEET
BUT HAVE NO PLANS
SUB-SCALE COMMITTEE FAILS
Special Convention Is to Be Held on
Broad Lines —Pies. Lewis Says
That Demands of Men
Will Be Granted
CINCINNATI, March Contrary
to expectations the special convention
of the United Mine Workers of Amer
lea will organize In this city tomorrow
without anything definite in view.
This stats of affairs has been, brought
about through the inability of the sub
scalo committee of the joint conference
of miners and operators of Ohio, In
diana and western Pennsylvania to
reach an agreement regarding the
wage scale for the coming two years.
The convention will adiourn subject
to the call of the chairman, which will
be issued when the scale committee of
the joint conference is ready to report.
Tills subcommittee adjourned today to
In speaking of conditions tonight
President Lewis of the, miners said:
■I am still convinced that ilu-re will
he no strike and that the demands of
the miners will be granted."
Mr. Lewis declared the miners will
fight in the supreme court of the
railed States the adverse decision
given Saturday at Richmond, Va. Mr.
Lewis was one of the defendants in
"The decision, if allowed tr rtand,
would be the most detrimental to or
ganized labor of any ever handed down
in the country," he said, "but it won't
Stand. All through the. various trials
we simply have been building the
foundation for the presentation of the
entire case to the supreme court.
"The injunction affects only three
mines and would not hinder us In our
efforts to close down West Virginia,
should the present Cincinnati negotia
tions terminate unsuccessfully."
