The Union Pacific ma chinists, after being on strike for over eleven months, on Wednesday reach ed an agreement with the company, the enscsMal points of which are thoe stated above. The boiler mak ers having previously adjusted mat- tera with President Burt and Presi dent Harriman in New York, only the blacksmiths now remain without the fold and they began negotiations for peace with President Burt immedi ately upon the conclusion ot the ma chinists' affairs. They will continue their conferences until an. end Is .reached. Every indication, points to a settlement with them The anal settlement of the ma chinists was effected and ratified Tuesday afternoon. For three days the five members of the machinists' international executive board had been in conference with President Burt and Superintendent McKeen at headquarters here. The local and dis trict committees took no active part in the deliberations until the terms of the agreement had been reached and then the local and district men were invited to participate in the ratifica - tion. This procedure was mutually agreed on at the outset. From the first of this " conference the utmost secrecy as to the deliberations has been observed. The only statement made came at the conclusion of the conference Hugh Doran. chairman of the ma chinists' executive board, officially an nounced for the workmen that the strike had been settled along the lines indicated above and thai the terms were entirely satisfactory to the men. Late in the day this statement was made officially at Union Pacific head quarters, as comprising the cardinal features of the settlement: L The settlement was made on the same basis substantially as that of the. boiler makers, which, was in ac cordance with the recent telegram of 3lr. Harriman to Mr McNeiL 2. All old men are to be reinstated, without discrimination, if they desire to be and make application within sixty days. 2. Strike is declared off June C and men return to work June S. 4. The matter of piecework is to be 4eft to the men themselves. 5. All men are to return to work in the spirit of friendliness, cherish no animosity and old discipline is to ob tain. No new men are to be employed. I durinz the sixty days within which old men are siven to return to work. The machinists say their wage schedule has been raised on a grad- -uated scale, averagmg about T per cent. The question of what to do with the non-union men who took strikers' places and those who were employed m the shops when the strike began and remained there was not dealt with in the terms of peace, but was left to adjust itself.
