Bditors-in-i!hief, city editors, and *ven stockholders are gathering and writing the news fcr this paper, and tlie proprietors declare the editions will be "issued as early as usual. The strikers, members of the Jewish Writers' Union, demand a mini-muni wage scale of $25 'weekly., an agreement that no reporter shall be forced to write more than three columns a day, and less blue-pencilling of "copy" by the editors. Strikes in three big industries are in progress in this city, and efforts of various mediators to ssttle the difficulties had accomplished nothing up to tonight. Summed up, the situation ; vote of tan to one,' about five thous- tonight'is as follows: . Afore than 150,000 workers are. involved in the great strike in the garment-making industry,, .which, .has been in progress for weeks and has grown rapidly in proportions in- the last few days. Continued conferences today had no- apparent results towards ending the shrike, and further meetings between managers and operatives are necessary. Tonight' a committee of thirty, representing the Hotel Workers* Union and the Industrial Workers of the World, was in conference, to decide whether to issue a strike order, calling out 17,000 waiters, cooks and helpers of various classes in an effort to tie up the hotels and restaurants of the city in enforcing wages and other demands of the men. By a and hotel 'employees!, it was announc. ed, voted in favor of the proposed strike.
