spectators were Kiank II. Thorn. Deputy
Stale Industrial Commissioner, and Col.
M. J. 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
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

the meeting, waiting for the arrival of

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."
