The Wells Street bridge over the Chicago River was stuck open for nearly an hour this morn­ing. El­e­vated train traf­fic was dis­rupted. The cause for the delay was flood­ing of the elec­tri­cal mech­a­nism by melt­ing snow and ice.

An ef­fort was made to­day to set­tle the strike of gro­cery clerks work­ing for Jewish gro­cers on the South­west Side. A meet­ing was to be held be­tween the con­sul for the gro­cers and the Union or­ga­nizer. Work­ers want a weekly salary of $ 16 and a 60- hour work week. Strik­ers say they have been work­ing 72 hours per week.
