Boston. April 29. According to the
union officers and business agents ot i
worklngmen's organizations, the In
dustrial situation In New England,
May 1, will bo marked by fewer con
tenllons between capital and labor
t.fian foi' many years. In the building
trades several small strikes aro
threatened in a number of cities, but
in Boston there promises to be little
suspension of work In any Industry.
The building laborers' uulons,
the members of which arc unsatisfied,
have requestod new wage rates In'
Boston and vicinity. It Is understood
that the prospects of a settlement
without a strike nro excellent. Tho
painters of eastern .Massachusetts are
endeavoring to establish a uniform
wage ot 3 a day minimum In llostou,
but thcro will beo strike on Mny I,
as tho wage question will not be nd
lusted until later.

in wages, but the Indications are that
there will be practically no trouble In
putting tho new schedule Into effect.

tions for May 1 this year than for
many years past. Practically all
