ACTION IS UNWELCOME COUNTRY IN NO MOOD TO TOL ERATE PARALYSIS OF BUSI NESS, IS REPORT. iWnurß Nfwspßpßf I'Blon Stwi Strtica.) Washington. Railroad employ**, should they strike, will find public sentiment overwhelmingly against them. The country, now struggling to get back on its feet, is in no mood to tolerate a strike which would cause general parulysls of business and gen eral unemployment. Reports from every section of the country indicate that the railroad workers will commund no public sympathy. The public resents a strike threat. Official Washington is determined that, strike or no strike, there must be u reduction in freight rates which have worked such a hundicup to in dustry ami agriculture. The ruilrouds already have made some reductions, but more must come. Tin* adminis tration is determined on that point. The recent unemployment conference held freight reductions essential to prosperity. If present wartime wages, higher than those of any other calling, will justify freight reductions, all well and good. But if operating costs must be further reduced to admit of freight reductions, then they must come down, strike or no strike. The public is strong in its demand for lower trans portation costs. “The simple fact in regards to such a strike as is proposed is iliut it is as intolerable as It ought to he unthink able,” comments the Albany, N. Y., Press. The Hartford, Conn., Courant, doub ing if the strike threat will be carried out. “credits the leaders with too much intelligence to attempt it at this criti cal time when the inequitable nature of the present ruiiroad wage scale is so generally recognized, when bushiest is poor, when the roads are so neur bankruptcy, when thousands of men are seeking work, and when the public is not in a mood for delay to the imped for revival of industry." “Without sympathy and support of the nation, the ruiiroad workers can not count on winning the strike," de clares the Detroit Free Press. The New York Times says that at any time the complete tying up of the railroad system would he an outrage and that “under present circumstances it would be a crime." It poiuts out tliat at a time when unemployed men are the subject of national concern, 2,000,000 employed men proposed* to quit their Jobs and cause unemploy ment of tens of millious of men anx ious to have work. The Philadelphia Public Ledger comments that what the “nation wants Is a deflation of both wages and freight rates." The Pittsburg Dispatch declares “tlds, of all limes, is no time for in terrupting the just recovering indus tries and business of the country by a railroad lieup." First Woman Juror Dead. Ogden, Utah. —Mrs. Amelia Heath, who died here at the age of 70 years, was a member of what is declared to lie the first Jury which included wom en among its members.

Coastwise steamship lines prepared to meet extra burdens which might be imposed on them us a result of the strike. At the same time, steps were taken to feed the city by use of trucks and airplanes, iu case of emergency. City officials de | dared nearly 00,000 motor trucks could be mobilized if necessary. Aerial transportation companies had ambi tions of moving food supplies, while from Hackensack, N. J., came work that the Postoffice J>epartment had asked manufacturers to speed up de | livery of mail planes. Give Up Ku Klux Probe.
