workmen have arranged a temporary
settlement, to be followed by a perma
nent agreement to' seitle the contro
versy which caused the strike of .40
men morethan a week ago. The work
men returned to their labors this morn
ing at the usual hour, and thereafter
terms of the agreement are to be ar
ranged. Men on the 12-inch mil) are
the only ones involved. Since their
strike 10 days ago the department has
been shut down. Employes demanded
.a short time ago that they be paid for
changing rolls, a stipulation not pro
vided for in contracts. This demand
was refused by the company officers,
and the men walked out. Their action
was taken as a violation of the present
working agreement. Head officers of
the national union came here to con
sult with factory men and they decided
that the men shall return to work to
day. The controversy will be settled
while the men are at work. It is said
the company will grant a part of the
demands made and that the men will
yield some points so that a compro
mlse satisfactory to both sides in the
matter may be reached.
