local in Chicago appointed. The trust newspapers have lied consistentfy about the newspaper situation since the day they lock ed out the pressmen. They may be lying again. On the other hand, some agent of the publishers may have sent a telegram From San Francisco and signed it L. P, Straube, just to discredit the Federated Trades Tiere. The Day Book has wired, San Francisco repeatedly today for news as to the action of the Ster eotypers' convention. We .have received no answer. Until The Day Book does re ceive an answer Mo those tele grams, or receives a. full report of the convention over the wires of the United Press, The Day Boole can not say whether the trust newspapers' story, or its own story of yesterday, based on the Straube telegram, is correct.
