Letter of the President.
LOCAL LEADERS TO
FORM NEW PARTY
Believed That End of Strike
Has Come and All Will
Be Back Tomorrow.
Resentful at the patriotic attitude
of organized labor toward the strike
of the Bridgeport machinists, the lead
ers of the strikers are said to have
decided to revolt from the American
I Federation of Labor and renounce
the leadership of Samuel Gompers.
According to a statement "Issued to
day they Intend to form a new labor
body t be known as the American
Labor Party and announce that It will
(be patterned after the British Labor
Party. Action on the new organiza
tion will be taken today at the State
treet Casino Immediately after the
; President's message Is read to the
trikers and a vote taken as to
I whether they will return to work as
'directed by the country's chief exec
utive or not.
There seems little possibility that
the vote will be anything other than
oompllaneo with the chief executive's
request. No opposition will be made
' by the employment departments of
the various factories towards the
.striking machinists. They will be ac
cepted upon the basis as employed
; when they struck. This attitude Is
, expressed not only by members of the
Manufacturers" Association but toy the
. management of the large munition
The management of the Remlng
', ton Arms Co., Union Metallic Cart-
ridge Co., the American & British Co.,
: the Liberty Ordnance Co., the Amerl
1 can Tube and Stamping Co., the
! Bridgeport Brass company, and oth
! er big factories and munition ships
' report that a large percentage of the
; men were In line to go to work this
I morning and that they expect all of
I the ir.yi to be at work when the
! whistles low tomorrow morning.
Another big feature was added to
the situation today when It was re
i ported that a large number of men
; who left town to avoid trouble have
j returned to Bridgeport and have ap
Iplied for and received their old Jobs
' back. A large number of these men
worked Sunday In order to get ma-
chinery which was out of order into
j running shape again, for the big one
! hundred per cent production effort
which will start this week.
Another letter has been received by
the strike committee from William M.
i Johnston, president of the Interna
jtional Association of Machinists at
j Washington, again counseling the men
to obey the mandate of President Wil
son and the Federation of Labor. Al
though not made public the business
agent of Local 30 stated that it would
be read at- today's meeting and is
much less threatening than the pre
vious communication which was hot
Immediately after the President's
message Is read this afternoon a sec
ond meeting will be called by the
strikers to form the new labor party
and to nominate a senator to run In
Connecticut., Fred Cederholm, for
mer alderman of Bridgeport elected
by the Socialist party, who participat
ed in the labor agitation of 1915, is
being pushed forward prominently by
the Socialist element in the machin
lsts' organization here. Cederholm U
said to be a labor organizer in Boston
now, but has 'been requested to accept 1
Isaac K. Russell, Held representative
of the War Labor Board, has been re
called, it is reported. Confirmation
of the fact was not possible owing to
the absence of Alpheus Winter, exam
iner of the board. Russell was
strongly opposed by Interests at vari
ance with that of organized labor.
The manufacturers of Bridgeport
now consider the strike at an end and
are devoting their entire energy to
getting the machinery of their plant?
In order.- A great deal of the ma
chinery was out of commission owing
to the strike of machinists and much
of the work upon which the strikers
have had no part being; tied up as a
result of the walkout.
