OFF WAR ORDERS
Convinced That There Will Be
No Strike Senate Will
Reach Vote On Question by
6 O'clock This Afternoon.
(By Associated Press.)
Washington, D. C, September 2.
The enactment into law of enough
of President Wilson's . program to
prevent the railroad strike seemed
assured when the Senate reassembled
this morning at 10 o'clock, with the
prospect of a program which called
for a vote not ater than 6 o'clock
It was the belief of administration
leaders that the Adamson bill, as
it. passed the House late yesterday
and as approved by President Wilson
and formally accepted by the labor
leaders as meeting their demands,
would eventually be accepted by the
Senate, thus obviating a delay in con
ference to reconcile differences with
As soon as the bill is finally passed
a special messenger will carry it
to the summer White House, at
Shadow Lawn, so the President may
sign it at once and remove the men
ace' of a general paralysis of the
.country's transportation lines early

amended, becomes a law' A . B . Gar
retson said today, "the-strike order will
That. was all Mr.. Garretson would
says regarding the probable time of
calling off the strike. This was the
first official statement showing that
the House bill was wholly satisfac
tory to the brotherhoods.
From other sources came the per-
0;0tDnt , ronnrt that arrangements
OiObVUV w " -
might be perfected whereby the strike
. . i
would be-caUed off officially before
the President actually affixed his sig
nature to the bill .
f At a meeting of the thirteen broth
erhood officials today in Washington
it was formally decided.. that cancella
tion ot the strike order should not be
sent -out, until President Wilson ac
tually 4ias: signed the . eight-hour bill.
The officials meet again tonight after
the' Senate has acted and will decide

It is probable that the Rumanians '
are encountering the more severe
