The Central Vermont railway In the event of a trike will trent with its men Inde pendently, so a high official ot the oad said last night. President Ld- ward C. Smith has notified the As sociation ot Railroad President.-, that he will not act In concert with them. In so doing he has not been alone. Several presidents of the smaller rail roads. Fast and West, have done the same. The men themselves, this same of ficial said, have not voted with their fellows on the big four brotherhoods to go on strike. Like thousands of employes of the Pennsylvania and one or two other smaller systems, they have taken no positive action. So far as known they have signed no petitions against a strike hut have kept out of it as far as possible. There are at present about 100 con luctors. . 20o brakemeii. including trainmen. 100 firemen, P0 engineers and BO ynrdmen who would be affected in case they joined in a general conn- try-wide strike. The Central Vermont is short handed at present. "The relations which exist between th- railroad ofHci.ils and the men at the present time we consider very friendly," said the official In question tlie men had never struck, he added. and they were receiving standard pa the same wages as prevailed on tin big railroads The Central Vermont said this official, was In a peculiar position because of its u (filiated own ersblp with the Grand Trunk. Tin latter, along with the Canadian Pad He and the other Canadian roads. Is In little danger of a strike unit I after the war. although they all belong to the Internationa brotherhoods. The later network the whole continent ami ordinarily Canada, would be as much Involved us the United States In case of a general strike. The Canadian members of the (our brotherhoods, however, the O, V. offi cial declares, have as mnch as prom ised 001 lo strike while the greal war Is in progress.

SI6NIK&0F8-K0UR GUARDSMEN SENT BILL SATURDAY STOPS STRIKE Brotherhood Leaders Say Threat- ened Walkout Han Be Averted WASHINGTON MORE HOPEFU Trainmen Still Vigorously Opposing President's Plan of Compulsory Investigation. Washington. Aug. 31. The strike situation. In the opinion ot congress men has changed from one of pessi mism to one of hope within the last 24 hours. The biggest factor in this change Is the statement of W. G. Lee, head of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, that the enactment ot a law incorporating an 8-hour day would uvea the strike. It is expected that the 8-hour bill will be before Congress tomorrow. Lee also informed the committee that provided the 8-hour bill was signed by Saturday night the trainmen would be able to Hash an or der calling off the threatened strike. Washington. Aug. 31. All the In fluence of the administration was brought to bear yesterday in an effort to persuade the railroad brotherhood leaders to cancel or postpone the or der calling a nation wide strike Mon day, while leaders in Congress began paving the way for legislation design ed to prevent or stop the threatened Industrial catastropher. Little tangible progress was made in either direction, but In official guar tera at Washington last night there still prevailed conhdenee that in one way or another the walkout would be averted. To the spokesmen of President Wil son who encroached them, all if the brotherhood Officials gave the same re ply; that they had no power to recall the stiike order and that only one thing "a satisfactory settlement could keep their men at work after 7 a. m. lbor day. Further pressure will be brought to bear, and a.- a ljst resort the president Is eouside: ,ng a public appeal to the men tneniselves to have the order rescinded. Apparently the 'egislatlon which is being counted upon to stay tb broth erhoo ls is that par of the pre . dent's program which would fix an eight hour day for railroad employes engaged In operating trains in interstate com merce, ami provide for an investiga tlon of Its effects by a commission or board. This embodies ihe principal icatures of the president's original plan ac Cepted by the trainmen, and W. G Lee. bead of the trainmen, said last night that its enactment with a guar antee of the present rate of daily pay would be regarded by the brotherhood leaders as a "satisfactory settlement Immediately upon its becoming a law. he said. the brotherhood leaden would send out the code message no tilvlng general chairmen that the strike order should not go Into effect. Fven some of the congressional lead ers wiio oppos. i'IIki- featmes ol :he progiam say such a law couPi bf passed.
