Chicago, Aug. 23.—Officials of the Western Union and Postal Telegraph companies were called upon Thursday to prove to the public their oft-repeat ed claims that they are handling all their business satisfactorily. President Small of the Telegraph ers' union said the companies were not telling the truth, and he challenged them to throw open their operating rooms for inspection by an impartial committee of business men, that the public might know the real facts about existing conditions. Mr. Small says such a committee will find the operating rooms filled with managers of branch offices, com pany officials and dummies, with here and there a/"real operator," and that only such business as makes the best showing of results—the tickers and the work of the great business houses —is being cared for, while the public at large is not getting service. Help for the Strikers. Chicago, Aug. 22.—President Sylvester J. Small of the Commercial Telegraphers' union received assur ance from President H. B. Perham of the Order of Railway Telegraphers' union Wednesday that the financial support of the railroad men had ali ready been asked. President Perham Tuesday address-! ed a letter to the members of the union requesting a voluntary sub scription to aid the commercial men now on strike. He told President Small "WHERE'S THAT COXJ^Of^BUTTONI1* LABOP """"ram 'V that the first request for assistance would yield at least $100,000. Can Last Until Dec. 1. The strike leader at noon Wednes day declared that he and his forces on strike were able to hold out until Dec. 1, without further financial as sistance. Local officers of the union re ceived requests from several railroads asking for experienced operators. Many of the telegraphers have been offered clerical positions. Telegrams and letters from brokers in all parts of the country are coming to the union headquarters commend ing their action in securing contracts with the broker firms and preserving the brokers' leased wire system. Many Railway Positions Open. Twice as many railway telegraph, positions as there are striking teleg raphers must be filled before Jan. 1, according to estimates made by offi cials of the Commercial Telegraphers' union. The estimates are based upon a new interstate commerce law going into effect at the beginning of 1908 under which the time on duty of rail way telegraphers is shortened to a maximum of nine hours a day. This law, it is generally conceded, will necessitate an increase of from 30 to 40 per cent, in the force of rail way telegraphers, without any large number of men, except commercial telegraphers, now available to fill the new positions.

Then her par ents admitted to him that she was in America but refused to tell him where. Nothing daunted, the young man came to America and renewed his search.
