The long expected strike of telex
graph operators went into effect
Monday afternoon at 1 oclock in
New York City when a shrill whistle
was heard in the main office of the
Western Union Out of 400 men on
duty 201 refused to obey the call to
strike The strikers went to their
homes As they left the building
they were cheered by other qpera
tors in Dey Street and there were
indications of disorder but the poi i
ice dispersed the crowd f
WHAT THEY WANT
The New York operators wantS
hours work per day for 6 days 30
per week and 60 cents per hour for
over time Night work of 8 hours
per day 35 per week and 80 cents
per hour for extra time
IN CHICAGO
Tuesday the Western Union arid
Postal Telegraph Companies asses f
ed that they had the situation in
better shap than at any time since
the strike began claiming that they
d
had over 300 men on duty and could
handle the business pretty well under
the circumstances Messages were
accepted subject to delay in trans
mission The officers of the Tele
graphers Union denied the truthful
ness of the above staterrenc and
said the companies had about 100
men at the tickers and many of
them were students and incapable
of efficient service

Companys operators had been in
tructed to await the action of the
Western Union employes When
informed of the abandonment of
oftheir
their instruments by the Western
Union men the latter announced
30 andwalked out leaving only
the chief operator in the office He
afterwards had ten other men to
keep him company in the deserted
officeEven
Even the messenger boys caught
the strike fever and went out after
having surrendering their badges
saying they would not work with
scabs Some of them afterwards
applied for reinstatement and were
put on duty

the strike Wednesday The paraly

The strikers claim and there is ro I
doubt of its truthfulness that they
have a large fund behind them to
make the fight Strike orders were
also sent into Canada and Mexico
and the orders were promptly
obeyed

Loss of 4000 Falls On
Prominent Farmer of
ofI
Casky Neighborhood
OCCURRED AT 1 OCLOCK
Mr Garnett Has Been a
Member of the Association
More Than a Year
The large tobacco barn of J T

mated at 4000 There was no to
bacco in the barn but Mr Garnett
is left without barnroom for his
growing crop
The origin of the fire is a complete
mystery Mr Garnett believes it
j was of incendiary origin and that
it was the work of some private
J enemy He has for a year or more
been a member of the association

peaceable in his nature

I
not the man to arouse antagonisms
This makes the fire all the more a
my tery The barn was in a field
and was approached by those on foot
I One theory is that the fire may
have been accidental the result of
tramps sleeping in it or negroes
shooting craps
There was no insurance on barn or
contents
