NEW YORK, Nov. 16. History's greatest industrial strug

dollars of capital, employing seven million persons. It pro

voritism to labor.
The railroads are rushing preparations to tvrevent th n.
forcement of the Adamson law. More suits coverinir all Hiim
and all districts will be filed within ten days.
Railroad brotherhoods are ioinin
forces, preparing to fight for the In
troduction of an eight hour day In alt
Industries, contemplating strikes and
force the employers to surrender.
The railway managers' conference
have adjourned. They were unable

willing to enter conferences.
