The issues between the ninety
eight western railroads and their en
ginemen weer placed directly in the
hands of President Wilson last night
by members of the United States
Board of Mediation, who declared
that they wished to "wash their
hands" of the whole affair.
The men have already threatened
to strike on August 7 unless the rail
roads agree to the terms offered by
the mediators. The enginemen con

now refuse to abide by their decision.
President Wilson will meet the
managers at 2 o'clock this afternoon
and the engineers and firemen at 5
o'clock. He will then hear both to
