Itengan, State Industrial Mediator. Tho Mayor llrst asked Mr. Khonts con cerning tho charge made by Mr. Mahon that four New York Hallways employees bad been discharged for Joining the union. To which Mr. Shonts replied: "That Is absolutely untrue. Only one man was dismissed nnd that was for flagrant and open Insubordination. Mr. Shunts then went on to say that lit had addressed meetings of the men and had been advised that they did not wish any outsider to act between theim and their employers. Then he read a Utement which he had prepared. Itrlatlone Are Pleasant. "We are not resisting our own men." read Mr. Shonts. "We have h.ul no communication from any of our em ployees. W'c had believed and we still believe our relations with the men nre ns satisfactory as human rel.itl ns usually arc and constantly Improving. "We do not know whether the com munication you handed us represents our employees or not. "We do know that nt two large and enthusl.iHtle mass meetings of our em ployees which we addressed Inst night there was every Indication of loyalty and of a di.pittlon to settle our family af fairs within our family ranks." Mr. Shunts said that "wo can very quickly ascertain whether these demands repiceent the views of our men If a strike should tie called. We know that there h is been no Mrlke vole among our employees. We know that the rank nnd file, of tin- men have given no cue au thority to call a strike. "We. nevertheless recognize the unlim ited possibilities arising cut of threats and Intimidation nnd that In the event that A small number of men should be Inductd to strike many others. In no sense desiring to leave their Jobs, might out of fc.ir or on account of threats consider It better policy to remain away from w -rl; until the trouble Is settled. Always Willing; to Confer. "We have always been willing to meet with mir men. Ilut since receiving the communication handed to us by you yes terday wn have instituted steps which will, we hope, enable us to ascertain more definitely the sentiment and the wishes of our employees. We have had a very happy family In the years In which I have Irfen associated with the manage ment of these companies, and no ques tions have hitherto urlsen which cjuld not be satisfactorily settled without ne cessity for outside Investigation. "We have asked our men to select from their own number a group of rep resentatives who shall meet with us and discuss the existing crisis as well a any other matters of common Interest." After Mr. Shonts had finished read ing hi statement he was asked by the Mayor: Are you willing to allow your men to organize without Interference?" "I'ntll I have Unlabel my Investiga tion," said Mr. Shonts, "I believe It would be very unwise nnd impolitic to discuss question, nt this time. I believe In tho sincerity of my men." "Hut there couldn't bo any harm In answering; that, could there?" persisted the Mayor. Shouts Sny "We'll Walt." "We'll wait until we havo decided the attitude of our men." "You will nt Jrnt agree to arbltrato the wnge scale, won't you?" "I believe that no question will arise that we can't settlo ourselves. Why anticipate trounie.' Mayor Mltchel then turned to Presl-1 dent Mnhon and said he would like to be set clear on one or two things. "I I would like to know," he said, "whether i reeognltlnn of the union would mcun a closed shop." " "We have made no such demand." said Mr. .Mahon. "Such a demand would have to come up later at a con ference between the men and the com pany." "I thought, Mr. Shontu," said the Mayor, turning to the other side, "that a strike might be avoided If the com pany would allow the men to organlre nnd not necessarily recognize them. Are you certain you don't want to discuss these matters?" "I don't think there Is anything left for me to say," replied Mr. Shont. "Will you agree not to discharge men for Joining the union?" "Oh, yes," answered Mr. Shonts. Hea!l7.lng the hopelessnos of nnv further conference, the Mayor adjourned the meeting, waiting for the arrival of President Wood of the New York anil rjuei-n.

While both companies made it clear yesterday they would not deal with the union, they said emphatically that they would be glad to treat at all times with employees who had a grievance. me general managers of both companies will make It a point to have nn Interview with both sides before 3 o'clock tnis afternoon nnd will give them definite answers. The union had branch headquarters In Queens nnd In Manhattan, where there were men to welcome recruits or to tnlkjf ,,, (mm ol!)er P,Pf" t0 rue the , with the other members of the union President Wood of the Queens Hallway held a meeting of his employees nt the Woodslde car barn last evening, More than 200 men were present and voted to stick by the company. The Inquiry by the Public Sen-Ice Commission Into the merits of the Third Avenue Italtn-ny controvery was ex tended yesterday to take In the demands made upon the New Vork Hallways Com pany and the Queens Hallway Com pany A motion to make the Inquiry broader was presenttd by Julius S. Cohen, attorney representing the com mission In the Investigation. When the meeting was called to order nt 2:30 P M. Chairman Straus Im mediately aroused the fear of the strike leaders by his statement that the "great public" must be considered In the con troversy. "I feel that nothing should be done," he said, "to Increase the dlDlcultle now existing, and whatexerslde doe that will place Itself In a prejudiced position be fore thn public" Mr. Straus said the public Is entitled to know the facts In the controversy and In the course of the Investigation If either side does anything to create fur ther disturbance than now exists "it will place iteelf In the wroris. Thoroaah Probe Promised, "The commission," he said, "wilt go Into the fact thoroughly and we will not shrink from placing the blame and blame there Is where It belongs." Tho request to the union leaders not to start any more strikes Immediately aroused the opposition of Louis Frldlger. representing tho' union men. He ex plalmI that the men had been "stilled for years In their efforts to obtain recog nition nnd fair treatment " He said that the employee of two other lines had been organised and wer- threatening to go out on strike. He said that demands had been served upon the companies. "If the men go on strike In view of the statement made by the chairman they will be placed In a prejudiced posi tion. That Is not Just to the men." Mr. Frldlger argued that the commis sion hud announced that It was not try ing to settle the present controversy, but was seeking fact on which to reach a decision as to who was In the wrong and to use as a basis for recommenda tions n tn future legislation. When Mr. Straus asserted that neither side should take any step that "would advance the conflict further," Mr Frldl- ger objected, saying that If the men stopped their work now and awaited the decision of the commission their oppor- ' tunlty would be lost. Strike Asralnat Dismissal f "In the event that men who have Joined the union are discharged, would the chairman ask the men to refrain going on strike?" "You will not be defenceless," an swered Mr. Straus. "If you are preju diced In your right to organize you will have ample opportunity to present the proof to us. "If the railways aggravate the situa tion by discharging men, they will be prejudiced In the eyes of the public and of the commission." Still Mr. Krldlger was fearful and asked the chairman to take hack the re quest he had made to both sides not to caue further nlsturnance "You have given tho railways by that I statement something which they want and which they could not have bought with all the money In their treasury. The expression by the chairman tends to prejudge nny action that our union may take In Its present fight." Rdn-ln A. Mnhrr I Mentioned. After his discussion had ended Kd 'wln A' Mn,icr. Sr- vice-president of the Third Avenue Company, wn called. One of the questions first nsked him was con eernlwt n resolution passed by the board of directors of the Third nvenuc railway system on June 2ti, referring the question 'he Yonker local' demands for higher wages to Mr. Whltrldge with power to act.

He had arreed in preaume that he forgot all about that agreement." In answer to further questions by Mr. Cohen', Mr. Maher said he personalty waa In favor of arbitrating the wago differ ences between the company nna mo Westchester men.
