1 Philadelphia March 14 Interest In
the general strike today centered In
the ability of the labor unions to hold
tilt striking workmen together and
I prevent a brenlc as predicted by the
employers nnd tho city authorities
Imports show that while some men
f did return to work after n weeks Idle
r cess there was no Indication of n
I general break but on the other hand
some unions which had hesitated
t alQiit joining the sympathetic strike
l In nld of the trolley men cast their
lot today with tho strikers
Tho calling out by the Central La
bor union of all union men employed
In the supplying of milk bread and
other necessaries of life bud no nyl
ons effect Union men declare that
the action of the Central Labor union
yesterday did not become known gen
erally until today and that all union
mon engaged In the handling of food
products will eventually obey the or
der to strike Large milk dealers and
others however assort the strike will
not seriously affect the food supply
of tho city as the men In these lines
of trade are not strongly organized
The strike declared against the
hanks Is a new wrinkle In labor war
fare The new move of the labor
leaders In calling upon all working
men and women not only in this city
hut throughout the country to with
draw their deposits from nil banking
institutions and thus deprive capital
ist they say of one weapon with
which to fight organized labor Is be
ing watched with groat Interest This
I action was taken by the Central La
bor union which Is conducting tho I
fl general strike because the local bank
ing interests are disinclined to inter
fere Jn the fight between the trollev
I men and the Philadelphia Rapid
Transit company
The committee of ten of the gen
eral strike movement announced to
day that there would he no sudden
I
withdrawal of union funds from the
l I financial fnsfUutlons The deposit
It was further stated would be grad
r ually withdrawn
Commenting on the strikers move
to withdraw funds from the banks a
high official of the clearing house
I said
It Is all buncombe and wont came
a ripple
The declaration of the Central La
bor union lenders to use every weapon
to win the present fight may insole
many unions with their employers i
When tJi general strike was ordered
the unions as a rule were at pcaco
with their employers but the action
of the central body In calling upon all
workmen whether organized or not
to seize tho opportunity to dem nd
hlshor wages or better working condi
tions may bring about an extended
hibor struggle In other Industries
Several large Industrial establish
ments scenting trouble have mode
s concessions to their emloyea and
have thus prevented strikes on spar
I
cine grievances Whether the unions
will follow up the action of the cen
tral body at this time cannot he pre
dicted
I The printers musicians and several
other unions that decided not to Join
the strike last week It Is Relieved
will stick to that decision and refuse
to obey the orders of the Central La
bor union
The Philadelphia Rapid Transit
I company operated almost Its regular
I number of cars today Officials of tho
I company said today that they had em
played 235 new men recruited In Buf
I falo The company declares it now
has 5000 conductors and motormen

there was no chance of a walkout
The railroad managers committee

will he taKon Into consideration It
Jif not likely that the railroads will
change their attitude If it were a I
ctuetlon of yielding we might con
sider It but to submit the question of

W S Carter president of tho Broth

order the men to strike If an unfavor
able reply to their last letter should
be received He said he would leave

The railroad managers talk of vio I

It Is a subterfuge on their part to

Thornton Green an elevator operator
21 years old has been suffering for
1 I
years from a constant feM and his
physician has just discovered the
cause two extra entirely unnecessary I
ribs According to members of the
Jos Angeles Medical association
Greens case Is something new In
medical annals and It Is asserted that
the young man will have to undergo
an operation for the removal of tho
ribs If he wants to avoid sweating to j
death t
Since lite small boyhood Greens
temperature has been ranged from i
two to four degrees above normal and 1
his respiration Is so copious and ener
allng that he cannot sleep under any

covering nor endure physical effort
The supornumeraiy ribs are fully
developed They begin at the cere I
bral vertebra and curve downward
crossing the natural ribs down to the I
fourth Ho suffers constant pain and
his lack of shoulder development the I

It is very wrong bays tho state
ment for the wireless companies to
ask congress to prevent studious
American boys from competing for
the millions and millions of dollars
which come in the persons who make
the valuable discoveries of the ftituro

They talk about interference by

Then they could cut out the Interfer I
