MONONGAHELA VALLEY MINERS.
Their Condition Fast Ilrcoinlng Critical No
Work Tor Them.
SPECIAL TO THE WORLD.
PnTRBuna, Nov. 22. A number of coal
miners from tho Second and Fourth pools
were in the city yesterday searching for em
ployment. Thoy report that tho condition
of the miners is fast becoming critical, and
there is now but little expectation among tho
men of securing any work in tho banks, and
n large number aro moving awav. Thoro ore
between 7,000 and 8,000 miners in tho Monon
gahela J'alley, and during tho last three
months not more than 3,000 have secured a
fortnight's steady work. The reason of this
is that when tho river falls below a naviga.
ble stage coal cannot bo shipped, and as coal
raining is tho only business of tho Mononga
hela Valley, everything is paralyzed.
Not a coal boat has left l'lttsburg since
June 20 last. Tho drought sinco then 1ms al
lowed tho river to fall so low that no empty
craft could reach the pits. Consequently,
nearly all tho pits had to shut down. In the
neighborhood of Elizabeth tho miners appear
to be in a worso plight than at any other river
point. The shutting down of tho mines has
Btognatcd'husiuess nnd tho little stores with
which the minors dealt have been in a bad
way, because of their inability to collect any
STEEL-WORKERS' SCALE ALMOST READY.
Increase of 10 Frr Cent, to be Asked For
Men and Mnnnrartuters Ftatlsflcd.
SPECIAL TO THE WORLD.
PiTTBBtJno, Nov. 22. Tho steel-workers'
new scale for 1888, which is to go into effect
on Jan. 1, isnbont ready tobe taken to the
manufacturers to be signod. It governs tho
wages of 8,000 men who belong to tho Amal
gamated Association of Iron and Steel
Workers of America. In tho scale for
1888, an increaso amounting to about 10
per cent, all around will bo asked for ; calls
lor work to be paid for by tho hour or
day, which is a movement towards doing
away with tho contract system moro thau the
one job system. Tho iron-workers' Bcale is
never signed until July 1. Tho January
scale for the steel men has been carefully re
vised, and a fixed price for wages by tho ton
nnd day has been so arranged that every
workman in a stool mill outBido of common
labor has been providod for. Thcro has
nearly always been a spocial sealo for steel,
workers, but it only embraced little more
than half the skilled work in a steel mill.
Tho first stop to thoroughly roviso tho
Btoel-workers' scale was taken at tho time of
tho trouble at tho Mingo Junction Steel Mill.
The scalo now has been so carefully made
that tho men are all satisfied with it, and tho
manufacturers have not been able to find any
great fault with it. It is so accurately gotten
up that it is impossible' for the Knights of
Labor to revise or make anything of a scale
like it. That has been the main point aimed
nt. Tho Amalgamated Association has formed
new sub-lodges in steel mills, where hereto
fore thero have been none, and whore they
have existed and wore partially or altogether
dissolved they have been reorganized ; but
o very w horo tho members hav e been all noti
fied that those who are Knights of Labor
must abandon that order by the 1st of April
next year, and in tho mean time become mem
bers of tho Amalgamated Association.
