Men Will Stick to Work if Officials
Agree to Stay $60,00b,000
Wage Cut
ftailway Executives Asked to Restore
Working Conditions For
merly in Effect -
Chicago, June 27.-A strike of
he 400,00 'Orailway shopmen of the
couhtry will be called for July 1
unless the railroads agree to stay
the $60,000,000 wage cut due the shop
workers on that date and to restore
certain working conditions formerly
in effect. It was made known tonight
through a elegram from J. B. Jewell,
head of the shop crafts, to the 9sso
elation of Railway Executives.
Decision to call a strike came
late today after a lengthy discus
d sion by the executive committee
of the six shop crafts unions based
on the strike vote of the men thus
far tabulated.
Should the rail heads arrange an
immediate conference, agreeing mean
while to continue present wages, re
store working rules modified by the
Railroad Labor Board and discontinue
farming ;out railroad work, however,
a walkout can be halted, the tele
gram said. Otherwise a "sanction of
withdrawal from employment on 'July
1, 1922, as voted by the employes,
will be unavoidable."
Telegram to Cuyler
The 2,600-word tele gram address
ed to Dewitt Cuyler, e airman of the
Association of Railway Executives
khrew no light on the actual strike
vote beyond saying it was an "over
whelming majority." Ballots were
still coming in, it was said, as they
, were not returnable until June 30. A
two-thirds majority is required by
the union by-laws to call a strike.
Although the actual call for the
walkout was made dependent on
the railway executives reply to
President Jewell's ultimatum, little
expectations was expressed in rail
road circles tonight, that the execq
tives would agree to such sweep
ing demands as those made by the
Six international union presi
dents, forming ' the executive coun
cil of the mechanical section, rail
way employes departinent of the
American Federation of Labor, were
responsible for the strike decison.:
Closeted for: two days in seer1
session, they remained silent on their
actiors until tonight.
Declaring that the railroads have
acted on a common program to re
duce wages and obtain other ad
vantages to the carriers, President
Jewell's . message pointed out one
benefit which may come to the
carriers an dtheir employes and to
the general public, from the fact
that there are national spokesmen
, of the conflicting parties who might
be able to halt a nation-wide with
drawal of men from employment
mi the railway service, if the railway
executives really desired to avoid this
consequence of their previous course
of action.
"Then for this reason," the tele
gram said, "in behalf of and by the
authority of the executive council
of the railway employes depart
ment, I am Anformnmg you and
through you I inform the responsi
ble heads of the various systems
in the United States and also the
Pullman Company most of which
are represented in the Association
of Railwav Executives, that unless
an immediate arrangement can be
"(1). To continue the payment. of
the wages at present in force.
"(2). To restore operation uinderi
rules 6, 10, 12. 14, 15, 46 and 1771, as
e they existed prior to the amendment
Athereof proposetl in decision 222; andl
"(3). To dhircontinue the contract
ing work and shops pending dtegotia
tions 'between the Association of
Ranilway Executives and the railway
cnmlloyes departmeint looking towvard
adjustment 'of the existing diseputes
Supon these questions, a sanction of
withdrawal from employment oni July
1, 1922, as voted by the employes,
will be unavoidable."
.The three reports on which the
executives are asked to meet the
'demands are idlentical with three
questions on which the unions are
,now completing their strike ballot.
'rhe first ballot covers the $60,
000,000 wage cut ordered by the
board, eff'ective July 1. The second
ballot involves seven rules regard
f ing overtinte and property; phy
,sical examinations, fought prmin,
pally by the union because they
wiped out time and one-half pay
for overtime and Sunday wvork. The
third strike question involved the
practice of numerous roaras in
farrning our~ certain work, dleclared
to be in order to avoid the rulings
on wages and working conditions
by the federal labor board.

Presentmert of Grand .Jury, sum-.
ner term of Court for 1922:
To his Honor, Judge John S. Wilson,
iresiding judge: We have passed on
Ill indictments handed us by the
olicitor. Committees appointed at
.he March term of court will make
heir reports at the Fall term.
Complaints have been made to the
3rand Jury in regard to the manage
nent; of the County chain gang, and
hese will be imvestigated and reported
mn at the Fall term of court.
It appears from our investigation
)f the case against Frank Washing
on for transporting whiskey, that the
Iriver of the automobile in which this
.vhiskey was being transported, is a
ife term prisoner on the chain gang
md when arrested had a considerable
luantity of whiskey on his own per
son. There are conflicting statements
Pron oflicers of the County in regard
o the ownership of this car and the
:lisposition which has been made of
t. In order to clear i) all misunder
standing in regard to the matter, we
recontmmendl that the car be sold for
Nash and the proceeds turned into the
County Treasury.
In our opinion, too much leniency
has been shown to prisoners on the
hain gang. We recomnmend that
hereafter no prisoners be allowed to
leave caip except when it. is neces
sary for hint to do so in the pertor
mance of a duty or duties asigned him
by an oflicer in charge. We recom
mend that trusty's be limited to the
smallest number possible.
The supervisor has shown us plans
and estimates for repairing the jail,
an appropriation has been made for
this work, but a sufficient amount has
not yet been received from taxes to
pay for the work. In view of the ur
gent need for these repairs, we recom
mend that the Supervisor borrow the
necessary amount if possible and have
the repairs made immediately.
We thank your Ionor for all cour
tesies extended to us.

Addresses, Latter Reading
Ills Platform
Allendale, June 27.-Surrounded by
an audience composed of citizens wh'o
boast that the youngest county in the
State is the best, aspirants for State
oflices today in the city hall of Allen
dale, deliverel their appeals for suf
frage. A pproximately three hundred
voters attended the meeting and a
large portion rentined until the
last speaker had been heard.
Senator George K. Laney, of
Chesterfield County, who is offer
ing for Governor of the State, took
a major .portion of his time today
to a demial of the report which is
current that he is an active sup
porter of former Governor Blease
and denounced emphatically the per
sonl who had started this false rumor
as a "cowardly cur."
Ir. Laney turned to his opponent.;
on the platfore and Cxoneratel
them of any connection with this
report, and referred to the and;
enee his public record in the legi..
lative halls of South Carolina as
the best proof that he could offer
im refutation of this statement. Mr.
I aney invited investigation of his
public record and private life and
declared that in n1o way had h"
ever aligned himself with forme.
Governor Bilease other than at tinos
when he thought it was to the beoi
interests of South Carolina and her
citizens. "I am not, nor have I ever
been : supporter of the politics 'of
Cole L. Blease. but I have always
labored for the best interests of ag Ii
