Fittsburg, Oct. 18.- Theindicationsare that the strike now on in the window glass factories will be broken by the workers themselves. A meeting of the blowers and gatherers numbering nearly 600, representing five states, who desire to overthrow the regime of Simon Burns, held a meting last evening and it developed that the majority present was anxious and willing to go to work. A resolution was unanimously passed repudiating the Burns addenda to the original scale as signed by the wage scale committees of the blowers and gatherers and the manufacturera two weeks ago. Simon Burns, however, issued notice that work cannot be resumed unless the blowers and gatherers are paid a relative advance over the cutters and flatteners.
