THE TIMES: SEPTEMBER 16, 19lA .
MANY MACHINISTS RETURN TO JOBS THIS MORNING Mass Meeting This After noon to Take Action on 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 plants here. 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 beyed. 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 the nomination.- 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.
