WARD. International News Servlc. Staff Correspondent. Cleveland, O., Msrch IT.—Tbe 60,- 000 railroad men In Ohio belonging to the four big brotherhoods are ready to quit work until their ftgbt for an eight bour day is won. Freight trainmen on the New Tork Central. Baltimore & Ohio, Nickel Plate, Big Four, Ijike Erie & Western, and Pittsburgh A Lake Erie roads will take out "no runs" after 6 o'clock tonight unless mediation proposed by President Wilson Is accepted, or tbe railroads come to terms. Freight trains en route at 6 o'clock will be deserted wben the destination Is reached. Practically all the roads ln the state have put 09 complete freight embargoes. Uttie freight was accepted Friday; none is being taken today. Thlg caused a rush on express companies. At depots of the American, Adams, Wells-Fargo, and other express companies throughout Ohio freight was plied tp the roots. In some depots It overflowed onto the sidewalk. At Columbus today Governor Cox wss being showered with telegrams from elVic bodies, commending his drastic avowal that In case of a strike the state will he placed tinder martial law and railroad men forced to return to their trains—at tbe point of bayonets, if necessary. To enforce his orders Governor Cox can utilize only the Seventh regiment, under Col. Harry D. Knox, Marietta, First regiment, headquarters at Cincinnati, under Col. Frederick Galbreath, and the Ninth colored battalion. Major Jqftrt Fulton, Columbus. These are the remnants of the Ohio National Guard. The others, sworn Into T'nlted States service, are under President Wilson. The railroads are taking steps to cope with the situation. In Cincinnati, Columbus. Toledo, Alliance. Cleveland. Youngstown and other railroad centers they are advertising for men. Pennsylvania employes have been asked to return to the throttles and brakes: loyal firemen are being drilled as engineers: warehouse employes and track men are being Instructed to fire engines and serve as conductors and hrakemen. In practically all population centers in Oblo tbe food on hand will be exhausted within a month, if freight cars are idle. In no center will the meat supply hold out over three months: in some places the food wlll be exhausted in ten days. Grocery stores and meat shops did a land office business today. At noon many shelves were devoid of canned goods, and limits of ten or fifteen pounds of sugar and a quarter barrel of flour to a customer were established. Several Industrial concerns followed the example of the Youngstown Sheet & Tube conipany, wbich offered its 12.000 mcjt to -Governor Cox for train service. The Cleveland chamber of commerce offered 3.000 men. Strike operations on eight lines will be directed from here by Edward Cor- rigan, of the Engineers, Martin Carey of the conductors and David Robertson of tbe firemen's brotherhood. The passenger service in Ohio will not be affected until Wednesday. At that time crews on the express and accommodation trains expect to join tbelr brethren, leaving interurban Unea and automobiles tbe sole means of transit between points in Ohio: Automobile traffic can continue only as long as the gasoline supply holds out. The tentacles of the strike if It lasts long, will reach Into every home In Ohio. The skilled trades will be idle when the coal and raw material now on hand runs out; lawyers will have no clients; requests for credit will force merchants to close their doors. Tbe railroad men hold between tbelr thumb and forefinger the pulse of the nation; wltb the cessation ot transportation It will cease to beat. ; i-i i'M-1 ■M-t-■M"i 1; 1111 in 1 i-i 1 n 1 m 1:11111- L 1700 ALLIANCE RAILROADERS WOULD BE .J- I.

London, England, March 17.—The heavily fortified works of Bapaume, one of tht chief onjectives of the allies on the western.front, fell to the British today, according to a despatch from tho front. Despatches from the front Indicate that the Germans did not give up the great position peaceably. Tbe flrst despatch to reach London said ""Stiff fighting" preceded the Britisb*<Vn- trance. The German retirement straightens out tbe German line to a great extent. Bapaume was a jutting peninsula- snaped wedge in the allied lines. Le Trunsoy and Aehlet Le Petit, around wbich heavy fighting bas centered for dsys, were captured by tbe British. British troops entered the city amid flames, set by the Germans as they withdrew. The troops, however, did not stop In tbe fortifications, but pressed on and outwsrd after the retiring Oermans. The capture of the shell-shattered fortifications marks tbe successful completion of the second stage of the presAt allied offensive in Picardy. The fall of Peronne was the first and now Bapaume. Comoes is already In British bands and Peronne the nextob lectlve and Its fall already has been predicted by military experts. Bapaume was the most Important of the German defenses on the whole western front. Field Marshal Von Hln- lenberg once said it was the "Gibraltar of tne western front." The successes of tbe Allied troops in the last few weeks are believed lo make necessary thp retirement of the Hermans from the entire line from Bapaume to Arras, positions they have held since tbey were hurled back ln the advance on Paris.

Secretary Lane issued the following statement: "At our request, and out of an appreciation of the national situation, the brotherhoods and the railroad managers have resumed negotiations, and in the hope that some adjustment may be had that will avoid the necessity for a strike, the brotherhoods have wired or telephoned their general chairmen asking that all action be postponed for 48 hours, and unless prior to that time, advised of a settlement the men will leave the service undr the authority already given."

The mediators then went Into session with the railway manager* and presidents. Brotherhood chiefs and government mediators were still struggling with the problem of averting a nationwide railroad strike thia afternoon. This wss the first sign of peaee elnce the conference began, for prior to thia time the brotherhood chiefs have been staunch In their demands and have held but short conferences. No word came from the conference room In the Biltmore hotel as to what the situation was though the conference hsd been on since 10 o'clock thia morning. Length of the conference was taken to Indicate that the brotherhoods have reaohed the point where they are will, teg to discuss some proposition other than their demanda.

Secretary Lane haa been working to obtain this postponement ao that more lengthy discussion of a propoaltlon for settlement may be had. When the Joint aeaslon began optl. mism was at its highest point since the conference began.
