Will Compete with the St. Louis Railroad Companies on July 4.
ST. LOUIS, June 30.—At a meeting of the Committee of Fifty, representing the trades and labor unions of the city, it was decided to-day to canvass St. Louis on July 4 to collect funds for the purchase of omnibuses for the strikers, to be used for competition with the St. Louis Transit Company.
Mayor Zeigenhein has decided that he will not interfere with the usual celebration of the National holiday because of the strike. He issued a proclamation, however, prohibiting the discharge of guns, revolvers, or pistols and the explosion of dynamite, cannon crackers, bombs, or powder on the Fourth.
