Directors Goodwin nnd Hognn, of tho American Railway uniou, left today to begin the work of organizing the uwn in tho northwest Htid the country west of the Misiis fjippi. There are now oight of these organizes out. "Oar policy, said Mr. Dobs, "is to keep these organ izes with the men, so the strikers will not weaken. We have everything solid west or tho Mississippi. That is our strong point. I claim that as loug as we have tramc stopped at one point wo have uot yet lost the fight. It is as if you stop the llow of blood iu an artery you stop the circulation of tho whole system. ''But everything seems to be runuing smoothly on the different roada, does it no: t Mr. Debs was asked. ''Oh, well." ndmittod tho labor leader, "the passengT business in and out is being transacted fairly well, but there are no freights moving at all to day, and thnt's where we have the best ot them. Inula where we expect to cripple the enemy." At the depots, Mr, Deba statement that freight traffic is naralvzed is not by any means borne out. Most of the roads are moving freight without th'.i slightest trouble. PULLMAN STRIKERS ARE FIRM. When shown a United Press dispntel saying that Mr. Heathcote, leader of th Pullman strikers, had asked him to call off the strike, Mr. Debs denied it flatly, "The Pullman strikers are just as firm as ever," he said.

On the contrary, he bns nosureu me of his continued co operation."

An explicit denial is given to the report that a compromise had been made on sugar. No such compromise has resulted nor is any likely to result within the uext forty time hours.

It was said this afternoon and for a time somo credit was placed iu the story thai the conferees had agreed to reduce the difL'rentiiil or.e uighth of a cent given to refiners one tenth of a cent, but this statement h denied on the authority of a number of tbe conferees.
