"There ain't agpin' to be no Strike."
At least, so say the men most directly
pgfected, the union members themsel-
ye. "Of ourse, the thing is right
where we want it, and we're agoin' to
hold out, but the government ain't
agoiU' to let it come. They'll settle
It before it starts." This from the
section hand, with his red and white
A. F. L. badge.
The attitude of the union men is
one of confidence as to the outcome.
"If the roads had cut their rates like
they promised the last time they cut
our wages no one would think of
striking. But they didn't do it. The
only way to settle the thing once for
all, is to make them reduce their
freight and passenger rates, so that
business can pick up. Then prices
will be lower, and we can live on our
wages. We'll get what we want.
They'll have to give it to us."

lofty perch and said, 'Of course we'll
