Leaders of Unions Call Off Scheduled 0
Walkout, By Unanimous Vote of '"
Chicago, Oct. 27.-The rail strike g<
scheduled for October 30 -was averted ni
tonight when leaders of the switch- te
men, trainmen, conductors, engineers
and firemen at a Joint-meeting adopt- ii
ed a resolution withdranving authoris- d4
ation of a wsalkout and officials of the fc
railroad telegraphers' organizations tc
announced t'hey would take similar ac- It
tion. These were the only unions r<
which had authorized a strike. .
The vote cabing off the strike was tt
unanirous -'iy organizatios, W. G. ti
'Lee, residet of the Brotherhood of
-Railroad Trainmen, announced. The si
official working of the resolution CNl
adolvyted was that "the strike be de- Ia
clared not effectiXe." ti
The vote 4n the individual unions at
-was runusually close, however, the fire
men particularly holding lengthy ar- si
guments before agreeing to cancolla- a
tion of the strike order, the labor u:
chieftain said. -In some of the'groups
the ballot was described as "the clos- f(
est in history on a similar question."
All of the differences (were ironed out
,by the different unions, however, and
the final show down found all of them E
casting their ballots for "no strike." E
L. V. Sheppard, president of the
Order of RIallway Coiductors, said 81
that the unions had decided to call off it
the strike because of "the growing I
,public opinion that the strike would
be against the labor board, conse
quently the government, and not
against the roads. n
"It was evident also that the entire E
Washington administration was op- G
-posed to us and that we 'had little a
chance of gaining our objectives," said .
Mr. Sehppard.
"We called this strike to gain cer
tain rights to which our men were
entitled," Mr. Sheppard told the As
sociated Press. "It soon became evi
dent, however, that the roadso were
succeeding in their misleading ipropa
ganda to the effect that we really
would be strikin-g against the govern
ment. This railroad propaganda found
its way to the United States railroad
labor board. This governmental agen
cy told us that it would look oi a
strike as against it and the govern
ment and not against the roids, and
that the full force of the govornment
wold be brotight to 'oear against us
If we Ndlked out. Under such cir
cumstances there was nothing to do
but annul our orders for the October
30 walkout."
The first announcement of the ex
ecutives' action was made by Mr. Lee.
Rushing to the floor'below the hotel
meeting room nwhere dozens of news
paper reporters were congregated, lie
smilingly shouted,:
"The strike is off, boys, but I've only
got one copy of the resolution and I'll
show that to you tomorrow."
All of the union men were smiling
as they came out and many of them
Jocularly pushed and shoved each
other down the stairs. To all queries
most of them replied:.
"It's all settled. See you tomor
rowls .
The code messages ca'lling off the
strike, arranged in advance, will'be
sent out tomorrow morning, the union
'heads said. A' code word will be
sent to each general chairman of the
unions and he wilT in turn forward
the orders to eacfr of the subordinate
offcfals 'under' hina.

Special to The State.
IEdgefield, Oct. 30.-The fall term of
the court of common pleas adjourned
yesterday when the suit of the Bank
of Parksville against 1Dulie B. Dorn
was completed This case attracted
considerable attention, as it is 'prob
able that other suits of the same char
acter will be brought. In July, 1920,
'Mr. Dorn, the 'ilefendant, gave a note
for $2,500 to the Fisheries Products
company of Wilmington for stock in
the company. Soon after the note
was given it was sold to the Bank of
Parksville by a representative of the
comiany. When the note became due
Mr. Dorn refused payment, alleging
that the note was obtained from him
through fraud. The bank was an in
nocent holder, having purchased his
negotiable note in good faith, know
ing the maker to be a representative
citizen who is responsible for his obli
gations. The defendant alleged that
the bank had informatdion that the
note was obtained from him through
fraud at the time that it purchased the
note. An officer of the .bank stated
during the trial that the 'Bank of
Parksville now holds notes of this
character aggregating $28,500. The
jury rendered a verdict in fa'vor of the
defendant, the maker of the note, but
.judge Sense at once set the verdict
aside upon the ground that it was
a negotiable paper and that the pur
chaser of the note, according to the
testimony given, did not have evidence
of the alleged fraud at the time the
spurchase was made.
The case has been closely watched
as there are in this section a consid
erable number of persons who pur
chased stock in the Fisheries Products
company and gave notes in payment.
The statement has been made that
the notes given in this section of the
state will aggregate $750,000.
