"Cox Runs True to Form,
Again False," Says Hays
CHICAGO, Aug. 31. "Candi
date Cox runs true to form,"
said Will Hays, Republican Na
tional Chairman, when shown
Gov. Cox's statement made at
Columbus.
"The Senate committee has
the evidence and the records,
which speak for themselves," Mr.
Hays said. "These show that
there have been 12,38!) individ
ual men and women who have
contributed since the convention
with an average contribution of
$82.11 each. Eight of these are
more than $1,000 and none more
than $2,500. During the ap
proximately nineteen months be
fore the convention there were
18,515 separate contributions.
"Of these 18,515 contributors
there were thirty-nine who gave
more than $1,000. Later the
limit was suggested, and two
gave more than $1,000 before
the rule was suggested. The
average contribution of the
whole 18,515 was $99.13. This
makes a total of 30,904 contribu
tions, with an average of $92.30
coming from all States. Candi
date Cox runs true to form and
his statements again are fulse."

Text of Judge Mayer's Refusal to Negotiate
With "So-Called Leaders" of the Strike
JJERE is the letter sent to Acting Public Service Commissioner
Barrett by Judge Julius M. Mayer of the United States District
Court, which even the strikers admitted was the worst blow they have
received since the B. R. T. strike began:
"Mi Dear Commissioned
"You called to see me this morning after a conference with
Messrs. Shea and Fridiger to present to me some view expressed
by them to you.
"I am of course always glad to see you, both because of
your official position and of my high personal regard for you.
"I decline, however, to consider anything coming from these '
two men or from the committee which has heretofore purported
to act for the employees.
"Either these men are responsible for this indefensible
strike or they are not; if not, then they have not truly represented
the men.
"The proper way for the strike to be settled is for the men
to return to work. After that the receiver and the court will be
pleased to receive any duly and properly constituted committee
which truly represents the employees.
"I cannot emphasize too strongly that there will be no nego
tiations, directly or indirectly, by the receiver or the court with
the so-called leaders who either incited the strike or were power
less to prevent it."
Judge Mayer presides over the court in which the B. R. T. re
ceivership proceedings are pending. Louis Fridiger is counsel for the
union conducting the strike and Patrick Shea is the union officer
directing the strike.
