PRESSMEN REFUSE TO WORK
.
.
Reverse Their Decision Reached
? Monday and Vote tc Stay Out
New York, Nov. 12.?The print
ers' stride situation was more com
plicated than ever last night. New
York presmen's union No. 51, which
had previously decided to reojin its
international organization if per
mitted to do so in a body and then
return to work, reversed its decision
today and voted to stay on strike.
Criticism by other "seceding press
men" is believed to be responsible
for the change of attitude.
Meanwhile hundreds of pressmen
and feeders who reported for work
were prevented from carrying on
their trade because of the lack of ;
compositors, who are on a "vaca
tion." Compositors are said to
. hold the key to the situation and un
til they return to work little hope
is held out for a fell resumption of
woik in the larger shops of the city.
It was stated that 20 more shops
resumed partial operation yester
* da*, making 130 operating in all, but
a canvass of the plants showed lit
tle improvement over conditions
Monday.
Charles Gaiicn, Elwood Melsy and ;
George Crowe, representing Phila
delphia pressmen, attended a meet
ing of local No. 51 and promised
that the Philadelphia local would
ccnrribute $7,500 weekly if the local
pressmen would fight employers to
a finish. A letter also was read
from the Chicago pressmen prom
ising a weekly contribution of
$5,000.

October 10 pending action by the ?

on their wage demands,. The'
