"MAY 1 WILL BE USHERED IN
WITHOUT SERIOUS STRIKES,
WORKERS IN PROSPEROUS STATE
Wage Earners Busy at Higher Pay
Than Ever Before Secretary of
Citizens' Industrial Association Says
Outlook Was Never So Promising.
Cnlea'go. April 2-1. Iir tlio first
fcruiu In years May J will ho ushered In
without any serious disturbance In
t.ho IticliiBtrltil world. This peaceful
condition applies not only to Chicago,
but to the Inn-go cities throughout the
oiintry, according to .lames A. Kmory,
wecrotury of tlio Citizens' Industrial
association, who is in Chicago.
"There is hardly a cloud on the In
dustrial horizon unywhero," said
Mr. Emory. "Wages are higher than
nt any time In tho history of tlio coun
try, and in most of tho country ttio
relations between the employer and
employe aro harmonious. Through re- J
ports from our different associations, i
am kept In touch with Industrial af
fairs In every part or the count ry, aii'l
1 have never seen tho outlook as
promising. In nearly ovory Instance
where working contracts have been
renewed, wage Increases have been
granted, so that May 1 this year will
not only bring fewer strikes, but also
higher wages than ever before."
Government Will Be Asked to Mediate
in Rio Grande Dispute.
Dnnver, Colo., April 21.-The United
States government will be asked , to
mediate between the Denver and Rio
Grande railroad and its trainmen In an
1 irort to bring ubout a settlement of tho
differences existing over the scale
question. L. 10. Sheppard, assistant
grand chief of the Order of Hallway
Conductors, and W. T. Nownian, third
Aico president of the llrotherhood of
Uallroad Trainmen, held a final con
fi renew with tho officials of the Rio
Grande road and notified them that
tho trainmen had rejected almost
unanimously tho offer of the com
pany's management of an Increase
averaging Il.til! per cent, and nothing
1 ss than the Chicago scale would bo
acceptable to tho Itio Giaude men.
They wire told that this could not bo
granlo'l and wero notified that tho
road would appeal to Washington.
The representatives of the trainmen
icspondod that as a concession to tho
public they would withhold further ac
tion until Washington could be heard
from, hut that only mediation and not
arbitration would be consented to.
They also declared that a strike would
be declared unless word came that
the national government was willing
to extend Its good offices, and that
very soon. Ninety-one per cent of the
conductors voted to reject tho com
pany's offer and !" per cent of tho
other trainmen did likewise.
