In passing sentence Justice .Oarret

PARIS STRIKE NOW
NOTHING BUT TALK
Paris, May 17.—All that now remains
of the strike of postal emploves of

on the part of the revolutionary pro

now ojienly affiliated with these ex

to talk loudly of precipitating a gen
eral strike. But the more sagacious
realize that the movement is unpro
pitious and the general opinion Is that
the agitation will not go further than
words. The total number of strikers
in the country today is 1,028 as against
1,598 yesterday. There have been
twenty-four

the protection offered.
Money Greatly Needed.
The greatest danger is from epi

sions. Measles and typhoid fever al
ready exist. It is urgently necessary
that the refugees disperse as soon as
possible. Money contributions are
greatly needed.
