WEDNESDAY EVENING SEPTEMBER 27, 1916 TO STRIKE IN NEW YORK (By Associated Press.) New York, Sept. 27. Union work ers to the number of 125,600 went on strike today in sympathy with the striking traction, employes, accord ing to figures given out at a labor meeting today. These were the figures reported to the meeting by the union delegates, according to the state organizer of the American Federation of Labor. The trades effected by the call he said are the United Garment workers, house-wreckers, painters, and a num ber of small organizations He de clared that 203,000 more would go out tomorrow. (By Associated Press.) New York, Sept. 27. The general strike of labor unions in sympathy w th street car men wa3 supposed to be in effect today and although labor leaders declared that some 250,000 men went out, there is nothing to in dicate a response. Private canvassers among the la bor unions reported that at least 22 unions failed to respond to strike calls this forenoon. The only report received at police headquarters was that 250 members of the painters union had refused to go to work. Attempts to estimate the number of Jewish strikers are futile, as thousands are on holiday because of the beginn ng of the Jewish New Year. Those directing the strike say 209, 000 will quit work today and that in addition to those who will quit work they will be able to call out 100, 000 a day for the next few days.

In all this Minister Whit lock has stood between our people and the rigors of the German military administration, and such lenience as we have received has come largely through his energetic and discrete in tervention. "But," added the minister,"the name of Americans who have shown this good-will: toward Belgium Jn very practical ways is almost unlimited Dr. Watson of the American church at Paris, and Mrs. Watson, Mr. Bliss, charge d'affairs at Paris, and h!s wife, Mrs. Wharton, the well known Amer ican writer, and many, very many, others. To all of them Belgium is deeply thankful." Turning to liniternatonal affairs, in which he had taken such an aetive part at the debut of the war, Baron Beyens went on: "We had every reason to remain at peace with Germany. Belgium had no hostility to Germany. We had many Germans among us, as you have in America, and many of our people spoke the German language. A spirit of good-feeling and of con fidence prevailed, as far as we were concerned. I have reason to know this as I was m'nister at Belgium up to the opening of the war, and had opportunity to observe the mutual re lations existing.

Suppose France had been the one to ask the right to cross Belgium and to attack Germany. We would have been bound to refuse it. And had such a demand ever been made, and ever been granted, what would Germany have said? It would have- denounc ed us as violators of a treaty, and as false and dishonorable. Doubtless the world would have agreed with this view, had Belgium taken such a course. But, . happily, this contingency ! did not arise France never sought , a icfcena uiai r rencn aesigns on tfei- glum led to the German invasion of ihe country.

"But Belgium will have her com pensations when her complete inde pendence and freedom are establish- ed as part of the peace settlement and an adequate indemnity has been provided for her and the time of reck- Kumama cast the and power in the balance on the side of the al lies. Belgium has shaped her course, and with the powerful support of her allies England, France, Russia, It aly, Japan, Portugal, Serbra, and now Roumania she will sustain her part of the burden of war to the very end. Belgium will come back to her own, in her place in the sun, and to complete freedom and independence."
