Official .circles here were startled late this afternoon by the sudden announcement of Postmaster General Burleson that he had returned the actual "control of operations" of the wire systems to tho companies owning them. Immediately after the action taken by the Postmaster General had been brought to his attention, S. J. Konen-kamp, President of the Commerical Telegraphers' Union, issued orders extending the Atlantic wire strike to cover the entire southeastern district ot tho country. A few hours later he announced that the strike would later be extended all over the Western Union system and asserted that It would probably Involve the other telegraph companies and the big telephone companies. Postmaster General Burleson gave out the text of his order for the re turn of the "actual control operations" of wires to the companies and also issued a statement In which he explained that the order given by him today does not effect questions ot rates and finance with which Con gress may determine to deal. The decision of the department was seemingly reached suddenly. Only a few hours before Mr. Burleson made his anouncemfnt the First Assistant Postmaster General, John C. Koons, Chairman of the Wire Control Board, testifliag before the House Interstate and Foreign Commerce Comrr.fl tee had suggested that June 30 would bo a good date for turning over the properties to their owners. He urg ed, however, that tho companies be notified as early as possible ot the date they would receive their prop erties so that they could have time to-prepare for reassuming-control Postmaster General Burleson's ac Hon was like waving a red flag at n bull in its results upon Konenhump who had been In Washington several days endeavoring to prevent a strike by obtaining concessions from the Postmster General, and It was brought tho Postmastrer General and Koncnkamp alone that this could have been accomplished. But tho moment that Konenkamp heard of the action taken by the Postmaster General ho waited only verification of that action, by obtaining a copy of the order, before ordering tho ex tension of the Atlanta strike to Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Kentucky and West Virgin- la. Postmaster Generr.l Burleson In his prepared statement does not re turn full control over their proper ties to tho wire companies of tho de partment, who pointed out that it merely returned to tho companies the "control of operations" of tho wires. In his statement, Mr. Burle son asserted that rates now in force and the financial relations between the Government and the companies "will continue unless Congress, in Its wisdom, may decide to chauge them or the temergenry is terminated by the pdocliunation peace."
