July 22.-There will be no general strike ot railway shopmen in Canada at least for the present. The Intervention of the railway department ot tho American Federation ot Labor, following the action of tho adoption by the ralhyays ot the Mc-Adoo schedule with amendmente last week, was sufficient to prevent tho sending out of a strike call to railway, shopmen's unions throughout Canada. It also had the effect ot causing a decided split In the shopmen's committee that had been In Montreal for several weeks negotiating with the Ralhvay War Board. East and west clashed, the eaet lor retaining go&d relations with the American Federation of Labor, and the west tor taking di'ostlc action and that at once. Western representatives, strongly supported by their membership, declare that a strike will yet bo called and that the American Federation will be defied. At four o'clock Saturday aft(?rnoon the shopmen's committee which had been in conference at the Alexandria Hotel, adjourned* Indefinitely and at 10:15 o'clock Saturday night the American meriibers ot the committee, who had come to be called "tho left wing," boarded the train for Winnipeg. This action followed the receipt of returns from the latest ballots submitted to the membership, as to whether they wore willing to strike In defiance of the railway employes department executive council of tho American Federation of Labor. Tho returns clearly showed that it would be Impossible to tie up the railways effoctlvoly, especially in the east. For Instance, 'In Montreal Itself, only one local lodge cast a majority to strike and hand back Its International charter, the ponolty of such action. On the other hand, tho west came out strong with a determined strike vote, It Is said that 2800 out of 3000 shopmen in Winnipeg voted for the walk out. Tho conflict ot opinion is thus sharply defined, the oast holding to the Internatioh&l fealty .and tlits west out tor Independence. The next move In the long game mdy bo expected thus to come from Winnipeg. \^ Paris, July 22.-Strong counter, attacks delivered by the Germans last night on the front between the Ourcq and the Marne were broken by the allies, the War Office announced today.^ The allied positions have been 'maintained.
