Thomas, the firemen's representative, gives the opinion of firemen: From, the present outlook," writes Mr. Thomas from the hot oed of affairs in Chicago, "a strike will be called on all the western roads in the near future The date for the walk-out has not beer, decided. Tell all the boys back home that they will be expected to act Just as they voted. II they do this there will be no question of who shall nm." Both englnemen and officials in Decatur deplore the stern aspect which t n e strike situation has assumed during the last twelve hours. There seems to be no question in the minds of Decatur firemen and many Decatur engineers but that, if a walkout is called, they will stand f i r m l y as they \ oted Rev. W. O.
