Labor Begins to Yield
So, in all strikes there cam?-- a time
when the laborer surrenders uncondi?
tionally, ;f the forces that tend to
presa the employers into humility have
not operated more rapidly thai, those
that hear i pen the laborer. (n an
orderly strike th-il is all there is of
the contest jus! waiting foi the for?

Crane Operators Quit
While the wounded milis up the va
ley are slowly gaming, the big Jone
& Laughlin plant in the city was s<
back to-day, to about the extent of tii
ordinary effect of a 1'olish wedding, a
\V. T. Mossman, of the company, est
mated it. .Here it was not the ord
nary common laborer that quit, bi
the American-bom boys who opera!

these wild youngsters after three daj

defection was serious enough to mal
the thousands who remained Ktn tr

the normal. Their quitting was moj
damaging for the time being than the
temporary loss ?f several hundred 1b*
borers. A serien of strikes like this
would put a well-manned plant hors du
combat for a timo.
The employers made undeniable
gains in other' part* of the Pittsburgh ?
district, ?.lore workers than hereto?
fore reported ?t Sharon, Farrell and
New Castle, and a general resumption
of activity In the Shenango Valley
was predicted within five days. The
American Steel and Tinnlato Com?
pany's report on the general situation
showed twenty-eight plants operating.
with 54 per cent of the Companys

On the whole, however, the situation I
is not enough changed from yesterday
to justify a detailed summary. |

sniping strikers fired on a plant there.
The troopers finally located the house
whence the .?hots were coming, and, j
entering it, seized the only occupant
they could find. As they were inking,

they we're beating him into submis- !

from the same house. Tin* building
was then surrounded, and presently a
trooper caught sight of a Serbian

sniping post. One bullet finished him, ]

A- a patrol of police, were taking j
payroll money to the offices of tho j
Ciairton mills before dawn this morn- j
i ri fr a dozen shots were fired at them, ?
but the shooters could not be located.'
Intimidating Letters Sent
There were sundry other minor dis
orders, itnd many reports of warning '
?otters to loyal laborers, threatening tc
burn their houses nnd kill them <>r
their wives and children. One such
letter, seni to a laborer at Rankin,
reads, in part: "You will not gn" to
work any more, as I will go before
your door to-morrow morning and give
you one shot, and if one is not enough
! will give ynu three shots. Do not
think that you will live very long. 1 ?
-t'A sorry for your wife and children." ,
Tjlie man who received this letter
was bravo enough to go to work, but
tho police say that few of the foreign- ?
ers require morn than one such letter
t? keep them away from the mills.
The mounted police say that the'
only way to neutralize this sort of :
thing is to "get" every man who re-'
sorts to a gun, as they "got" the
.. pers at Sharon this morning.
The reluctance of the steel executives,
(ven in-their frankest moments, to let
the public know just, how hard hit the ;
industry is, was evidenced this evening
when an officer of the < arma;]?? Com?
pany, after admitting that some blast |
? a :? h ces had b.een "pulled," rcl is? cl
point blank to say how many of the
fifty-eight blast furnaces were --till

One phase of the labor troubles in?
volving the book anil job printing
houses was tentatively settled yester?
day when seven unions of the print?
ing trades agreetl to arbitrate all their
differences with the employing print?
But the differences between Typo?
graphical Union No. ?1 and the Associ?
ation of Employing Printers still are
unsettled. Leon Rouse, president of
"Big 6," announced that there would
be no arbitration of the forty-four
hour'week demand of the members of
his union, ami walked out of the joint
conference of employers and printers
when it was nade plain by the em?
ployers that nothing but arbitration
w ould '? ; acceptable to them.
yesterday's conference, which was
held in tin- offices of the Typothettfi
in the Flatiron Building, was the re?
sult, of tin? request of "Big 6" for fur- i
ther efforts to reach an agreement.
When tho conference was called the'
seven unions of bind'erymen and mail?
ers, as weil as ihe representatives of!
"!!'.;? >'.," par? ?cipated in ;f.
Have Arbitration Agreements
A canvass of the union men revealed
that all bul the typographical union ?
have arbitration agreements extend
.,;.,! October 1. Asked if they
were prepared to abide by those agree?
ments, the union men sait! they were.'
Then President Hows?- was asked if
his organization would join the others:
and arbitrate their demands.
"We'll arbitrate the wage question,]
but the forty-four hour week cannot;
be arbitrated," he said.
Previous to this it had been atrreed '
by tho various unions of the print-:
inc trade to permit House to act as
pol - -man for them. Since all but:
Louse accepted arbitration It was? de?
cided that this arrangement could not
rhon fore the head of "Big
G" relinquished this position and with?
drew from the meeting.
The other unions remained for nn
conference, at which sub-com?
mittees were appointed and the task
of working out the details of a peace
