Arrangements were made with Farwell
to meet representatives of. the general
committee, when, according to. the labor
leaders, the settlement "of 'the 'strike -will
be completed with the 'exception of .tak
ing a referendum vote by the strikers on
the proposition. \u25a0 . .
CHICAGO. June 23.— A1l the obstacles
which have prevented an ending of the
teamsters' strike appear to have been
eliminated, and the indications to-night
arc that unless something unforeseen de
velops hostilities between the opposing
interests will cease within a short time.
At a meeting to-day between the com
mittee representing • the strikers and J.
V. 'Farwell for the Employers' Associa
tion, the question of a conspicuous dis
play of the union button, which has been
opposed by the employers during the
peace negotiations, was - settled. This
question is to be left to the employers
individually, the association agreeing to
withdraw the demand for the elimination
of the union emblem. As the button
proposition has been the chief stumbling
block during the latest efforts to reach
a peaceable settlement of the difficulty,
it is the general belief that the trouble
is drawing to a close, as all the other
terms of settlement made by the employ
ers have been accepted . by the officials
representing . the strikers. '. During the
meeting with Farwell, the 6Ub-committee
of the Teamsters'y Union assured: the em
ployers* representative that his terms- of
settlement would be satisfactory _to . the
men, but~that~the result "of t the meeting
would have to be reported to the general

LODZ. Russian-Poland. June 23.— Eince
•arly this morning this city has been
the scene of several bloody encounters
between the troops and the strikers. Sol
diers stormed the barricades erected in
the rtrcets by the strikers and at least
fifty. persons were killed and 200 wounded.
Martial law has been declared. "The
strike is general and all the factories
and shops are closed. Rifle volleys and
revolver shots are heard continually. It
is impossible at present to ascertain t^e
total number of dead with any exactl
tu£e # owing to the general character of
the disturbances. The mob sacked a
number of liquor stores and broke the
street lamps. Street railroad traffic is
WARSAW, Russian-Poland. June 23.— A
man carrying a bomb was arrested this
morning in front of the Malewki police
station. He refused all information re
garding his identity. Disturbances are
anticipated here in consequence of the
shooting of workmen at Lodz.
ST. PETERSBURG. June 24. 3:ls'p. m.—
According to advices received here the
situation in Poland is again exceedingly
serious. Censored dispatches from Lodz,
„ though, giving few details, indicate that
fierce street righting was in progress yes
terday (Friday) between the military and
the striking workmen. The latter barri
caded the thoroughfares in various quar
ters cf the city and offered resistance
which the troops met with volleys. The
list of dead and wounded presumably is
large, but not even an estimate has been
received here, Russian correspondents
telegraphing that the streets are entirely
in the hands of the military and the mob
and that it is unsafe to venture out to
obtain details. It is not known whether
the fighting was continued last night,
but it is feared that order can be restored
only at a heavy, sacrifice.
Lodz has been in a turmoil for the past
three days. The strike; which embraces
60.000 workers, appears to have entirely
lost Its economic nature and Is now a
vast political manifestation. All forms
of public business activity have been sus
pended, the peaceful inhabitants remain-

inflamed by intoxicants from the vodka
shops, which were broken Into and pil
At Moscow a strike has commenced and
disorders are looked for. The trial of

station on March 26, will probably result
In other bomb outrages. A man was ar
rested yesterday morning armed with a
bomb, which was evidently intended to
be used In court during the trial. "
In the meanwhile the Government has
publicly disclaimed all designs as to the
Jtusslncaticn of Poland, the committee of
Ministers in its deliberations on the so
cialist question, which were published
yesterday, saying:
'The committee considers it absolutely
necessary to establish the fact that the
RussiScation and denationalization of the
Poles cannot possibly lie within the in
tent of the Russian Government. The
aim must rather be the amalgamation of
the Polish Government with the Russian
administration and the welding of the
Polish people with the general body poli
tic of Russia by peaceful ties, which will
preserve Polish individuality, culture and
