New York. Sept. 29. Labor un'on
officials who attempted to organize a
general strike here and in Westchester j
county in sympathy with the striking
street car men refused today to ad-j
m l defeat and still claimed that near
ly 200,000 men were on strike. j
They announced, how.evfer, that ef
forts to call out others will be post
poned until Monday next.
The most serious disappointment
suffered by the labor chiefs was the
action yesterday of the allied build
ing trades with a membership of 100,
000 and teamstejrs with'' 20,000 in
postponing a decision on the strike
issue. '
The strikes in trades outside the
street carmen include about 10,000
