PAPER MAKERS' BIG STRIKE IS SETTLED. nuslnrss Interests nt Helloirn FnlU llnll Outcome nit h Itellef A Com. promise -fTrc(cd nn Three-Tour jHyn. tem. Bellows Fnlls, Aug 7. The paper strike Is settled Is the news that Is given out to-night. It was the result of a series of conferences between of ficials of tho International Paper com pany and of the Pnper Makers' union, beginning In New York last Thursday and ending In Bellows Falls yesterday. At the New York conference Thurs day the company agreed to put the three tours on Jnnunry 1, inns, on such machines In the Fall Mountain Plant ns In Its opinion could be operated with profit under thnt system nnd shut down such machines ns could not he operated with a profit. President Gary of the union asked the company to make the date September t Instead of January 1, but the com) -ny refused. At a meeting of the strikers Saturday evening the January 1 proposition was turned down, the vote being 107 to (5 President Cary, who came to Bellows Falls Friday, then got busy with the New York office of the International Paper company and A. N. Burbank nnd W. A. Whltromb came to Bellows Falls Thursday afternoon. A conference was held thnt evening and another yester day forenoon. The result was the fo. lowing agreement. THF, OFFICIAL AOREKMBNT. "It Is mutually agreed between the In ternational Paper company nnd the In ternational Broth Thood of Paper Makers, Pulp Sulphite and Paper Mill Workers that the Fall Mountain mill will start operations Immediately under conditions same as existed June 11, 17, when operations ceased, nnd furthermore thnt upon Mondav. October 14, 1M7, the two-tour system will be discontinued and the three-tour system adopted at the Fall Mountain mill It Is further under stood that there sha'l lie no discrimina tion against any former employees on nccount of the recent trouble. (Signed) "For the International Broth er hood of Pnpennakers, Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill workers, J. T. C.iry, president; for the Internatlonnl Paper-1 Marjorle Phelps, who has been visit makers Co., W. A Whlteomb, manager Ing her aunt, Mis. Votey of Burlington, manufacturing department." The men are to go to work ns rapidly as the plant can be put In readiness to manufacture paper and by Monday all the wheels will be turning ns usual. On June 1 the company voluntarily raised the wage-s of the tour workers 10 per cent. and the lnc-rense holds under the present agreement. The men nn the three tours will receive the same pay that they now do on two tours. This sottlf tnent does not effect the three Inilependant com panies, whose mills nre shut down, or partially so, hut the number of men employed Is small and the union does not Intend to force matters nt piesent. What ever difference of opinion there may be ns to the necessity of the strike, now that It is settled, or the largest part of it, tho business community breathes easier.
