Tills is one of the si i)iie s of the late strl1 e
undone .f the most significant ones. By
the terms of their i iilltrtet the A-soeiated
Press is compelled to dischirge anv oper
ator who Is obj. tionatile to the eoinp ly . A
demand appears to have been made
from New York by the Western
I'nionthat Mr. Lavertv hould be dis-mis-ed.
and he wa lonhwllh nolilied that
his services were no longer required.
"1 anticipated Ibis action." Mr. Lavertv
says. ' U was forced Upon tho Associated
Press people. I am not sure that the Wes
tern I'nion company go so far in thcr as
sertion of tb'dr dictatorial (sowers as to
claim that any man connected with the
iisoeiatlon who is objectionable tutist be
discharged if they demand it, but they
might in case of necessity even go so
far. The Western Union practically does
as It please ill Associated Press matters. I
doubt not that the telegraphers w ill form an
other association organization, hut don't
believe there will be any more strikes, at
least for several years. The operators'
association can do more t it.i the companies
without threatening to go out Than by mak
ing the strike an ultimatum. This opinion
I have held all along, and It wan only be
ratis? the great body of the Brotherhood
decided to go out at the last strike that I
went with them, akhough I W as opposed to
such a course from tho start."
