Kew Bedford, Mass., Feb, 16. The
proposition has been under considers
tlon by tha local labor leaders for several
days to call out on strike tho employes
of all the yarn mill In the city, which

This proposition Is Independent of that

indications tho rerntnmendation of tho
conference oomr tt , which met at
Boston Sunday, aavooattng general

land, will fall flat In this city. Presi
dent William L. Klnsclla of the Wear
era' union said lost night:
"There will be no strike here as long
as tho professional agitators keep away
and allow us to manage our own affaire."
At the meeting of the King Spinners'
union the reoommeudatton of tha oou
feronoo wax entirely Ignored, while at
tbe meeting of the Union of Drawing
in Girls, Warpers and Spotters It was
decided that It waa Inadvisable to con
elder the recommendation, and that all
efforts should be concentrated upon the
strlko at Now Bxlford for tbe prerent.
At the latter meeting it wwi also voted
to commuuioate with the two local sen

AgsnU of the local mills Interviewed
do not take tho recommendation of tho

a general shut down of the New Eng
