ed walk-out of a number of allie
tradesmen. President Small declare
that the operators never would sum

and that the only possible way to se
cure their return was through the teli
graph companies granting the de
mands of the new wage scale. "Tb
men and wohen of the Telegraphers
Union are ready to starve. They wi
sleep in the streets if necessary, an
I will go with them before they wil

Wires to outside markets were nc

I SITUATION IN NEW YORK I
SOfficers of Companies Say Strike Or- e
der did not Hurt Them. e
New York, August 16.-Officials of o
- th telegraph companies in New York a
a said today that .the general strike or- t
der issued from Cicago at 1 o'clock v
e this morning by President Sam Small, e
r of the Commercial Telegraphers' Un
ion, had no -effect on the situation t
i either in this city or elsewhere. All 1
the telegraphers who were in sym- c
pathy with the.strike mov nent had t
already gone out, they said, without s
orders from Small, and the latest s
mandate from' the head of the union
was, because of that fact, practically
The union leaders in Chicago main- s
tain that at least 5,000 men will be a
added to the fold of the strikers by r
the new order. The only operators in
New York likely to be affected by the
latest strike order are those tele- r
graphers employed by wire houses in g
Wall street that have hot-yet signed s
the recent -schedule with Local No.
16. Though most of the brokers in
the financial district are reported to
have agreed to the increased wage a
t scale, there are s6me of the houses, F
I notably that of J. S. Bache & Co., 42 1
e Broadway, that have refused to agree a
e to the demands of their telegraphers,
a but no reports.of walkouts from these
I houses were made today.
Although union men declared that it
they expected many of the wire chiefs C
employed by the Postal and Western
Union companies to be influenced. by
r the last general 'order officials of
those companies denied today that a
there had 'been any break in the ranks
1 of the operators that remained loyal ~
s in the walkout of Monday last.
1 A report reached the union's head
5 quarters at 56 Pine. street this after- ~
t noon to the effect that the officers of
- the American Telephone and TelIe- ~
s graph company had signed a new
wage-scale and immunity agreement
with the Telegraphers' union, which I
should be binding on all the com
- pany 's officers throughout the coun
try. Thiis report was promptly. de- ~
s nied~ by C. 'H. Wilson, general super
intendent of the Telepone- Company.
''No demands have been made on our
company in behalf of the. telegraphers
we have in our e'mploy,'' said Mr.
Wilson, ''and we do not expect any.
B We have heard no initimation of
grievances among our telegraphers.''
Mr. Wilson explained that the 1
American iTelephone and Telegraph 2
company did not employ more than }
froma 300 to 400 telegraphers through- 2
out the country.' There are about 35 1
f in their New York offices.
I ''The telephone does not send gen
a eral telegraph messages,'' said the su- 1
r perintendent, ''it merely works leas- 1
e ed wires in conjunction with its tele- 1
e phone service.''
- Daniel L. Russell, chairman of the 1
strategy board of the telegraphers' )
i local, called again at the attorney
-general's office today and had a con
s ference with Deputy Attorney Gen- t
eral Chas. R. Dolson. The deputy a
told Russell that in order to have the
alleged incompetency of the telegraph
e companies to deliver messages by
wire in timely season brought legally
[1 before the attention of the attorney
general, it would be necessary to draw
.1 up formal charges and append thereto
whatever proof the union officials
t might have in suppor,t of their claims. c
The strategist of the union said af- t
ter his conference that the union had
:, secured proof that the telegraph com-.
panics were receiving full rates for
-messages which were sent out of town
a mai! or in cases of urgeney, by
L long distance telephone.
e ,He believed that Attorney General
-Ja. - n would see in this an infrae
s tion oi e charter rule& under which
r the telegraph companies operate.
a. Today was pay day at the offices of*
the telegraph companies. According
-to -the custom of the companies of
a witholding a' week's pay on the run
t ning account of each operator, the
strikers drew today a week's pay
s lus the wages for the unfinished
week interrupted by the :strike. Offi
f cers of the union said today that
a in many instances the pay vouchers
e were mailed to the homes of the strik
ers with the word ''final'" stamped i

New York, August 16.-Interest in
be telegraphers' strike centered to
ay in the probable effect of the gen
ral strike order issued by President
mall, of the National union, which
alled upon all operators employed by
le commercial telegraph companies
iid those working private and leased
-ires not under contract to go out.
hroughout the East there were few
any response to the call. This was
xplained on the ground that all op
rators who would now strike had al
eady quit work, and here the strike
rder was given importance only as
ffording official sanction to the ac
ion already taken by the strikers
ithout the previous approval of or
onsent of the national officer.
Both the Western Union and Pos
al companies claimed not to have
een affected by President Small's
all and to be working their wires
etter today than before since the
trike was declared. Business, it was
aid, was again moving smoothly.
The Associated Press was not af
ected adversely. On the contrary
