Exploding bombs kept the rail strike fever at a high stage In some of the nation's rail centers, however. A tremendous explosion early today in the Chicago-Alton roundhouse at Venice, Ills., shook buildings for three miles around. troops declared needed at shawnee, okla., shops Shawnee, Okla., Aug. 23.—Declaration that troops are necessary to cope with the shopmen's strike hère, was made by United States marshal Mac-Donald today, who is directing protection of the properties of the Rock Island and Santa Pe roads. Approximately 100 federal deputies were on duty early today. rail executives determined to oppose seniority plans strikers with seniority rights unim paired. •The decision of the steel corporations to raise the wages of laborers announced just twenty-four hours prior to the scheduled meeting of the executives, was hailed by the strikers as a point in theli- favor. It not only justified their refusal to accept wage cuts fixed by the railroad labor board, they said, but was ample proof of an Impending Industrial boom which would put the railroads, with their thousands of bad order cars, mona than ever In need of their old repair forces. "This wage increase will put considerable fire into the veins of railroad labor," declared David Williams, secretary of the Eastern strike com-imlttee. "The railroad man will find It hard to understand why he should get $2.75 a day when he could get $4 for the same work in the steel mills. "If the railroads don't settle with the shopmen, it will be doubly difficult for them to hold the unskilled crafts in line." Rail heads refrained from discussion of the possible effect of the steel com; panics' move on rail strike negotiations. They were, nevertheless, quick to offer numerous reasons why the steel interests should grant their men a raise at this critical stage. One was that some of the steel corporation bankers, who are also large investors in the railroads, took such means of making untenable to position steadfastly maintained by the Eastera "die hards" headed by L. P. Loree, that the strike be allowed to continue "asa finish fight" rather than It be settled by returning seniority rights to the strikers. In other quarters the raise to steel men was interpreted as an attempt to forestall a shortage of labor when coal miners get into full action again, and roads are called upon to take up the additional burden of record crop movements.
