Several railroad labor chieftains to

"" of Union Leaders.
Washington, D. C., Oct. 17. The
government through its various d
partments began to-day a survey of
the situation as developed by the call
of railroad union leaders for a gener
al strike beginning Oct. 30,
Officials from President Harding
down to departmental bureau chiet
and secret service agents were known
to be watching the situation closed
meanwhile hoping that some means
might be found for averting a paral
ysis of the nation's transportation sys
tern. The whole range of possibilities
at present was regarded ty officials, as
Postmaster General Havs in the only
public statemeil issued up to noon, de
dared "the mails will be moved."
"I am sure, the parties to the . con
troversy will not permit development
which will interfere with government
service," sad Mr. Havs. "This is no
time for statements from this depart
ment. A time may come for action. 1
sincerely trust that it will not. If it
does there will be action. The mailj

To Avert Impending Railroad Strike
Official Washington Inter
ested in Plan. '
Washington, D. C, Ort. 17. Official
Washington's interest in the impend
ing national railway strike rentered to
day in the reaction of railway execu
tives and labor leaders to the proposal
of the public group of the railroad la
bor board, of "one feasible plan" to
prevent the tie-up of the country'
In brief the board proposed:
(IT That the railroads immediately
put into effect freight reductions equiv
alent to the wage redactions authorized
(2) That requests for further wag
decrease be withdrawn.
(3) That the employes withdraw
their strike order pending action of
the board upon any request for fur
ther wage reductions which the car-'
rim subsequently might file.
Federal action in connection with the
strike bad been confined up to to-day
to toe conference arranged by Presi
Vnt Harding between the public group
er too labor board and the interstate
commerce commission. There was sou
expectation, however, of n statement
from Postmaster General Havs in re
ply to the announcement that ma;l
trains would not be given special eon
aideration in case the strike developed.

Proposal to Reduce Freight Rate,
Cleveland, Oct' 17. The nroposal
of the public croup of the railroad
labor board to reduce freight rate to
prevent a railroad strike would not
prove feasible. Warren S. Stone, grand
chief of the Brotherhood of Bail road
Engineers declared to-dav.
"The suggestion cannot be worked
out, Mr. Stone said. "By the time
the eduction got to the consumer it
would not amount to one half of one
per cent. The middleman would ab
sorb all of the difference."
W. (J. Ioe, president of the Brother
