The Coke Strike Quite Likely to be
Settled This Morning.
OPERATORS ESDBAVOE TO MEET.
Mammoth Assemblages of Strikers in the
Heart of the Itcjrfon.
WHY CONCESSIONS AKE COUNSELED
A meeting of the. cote operators of this
city was called for yesterday afternoon to
discuss the strike. The offices of the Hecla
Coke Company, corner of Liberty and Sixth
streets, was the place. The meeting was
evidently intended to be held as quietly as
possible, and none of the operators wanted
to say anything about it Prom what could
be learned afterward, it appears, however,
that no discussion took place. Several
operators being out of town, nothing defi
nite could be determined upon. H. C.
Frick.JjMr. Schoonmaker, of the J. M.
Schoonmaker Coke Company, and also a
representative of the Moore Coke Company
MB. FRICK NON-COMMITTAL.
When Mr. Frick was seen at his office, and
asked as to the purpose of the meeting, he
said, very reluctantly:
"Of course under the existing circum
stances in the region, it is quite natural that
the operators would hold a meeting to dis
cuss a question so interesting to us all. "We
did not hold a conference, however, this
atternoon. It is true we intended to do so;
but we abandoned the idea because there
are so many of the operators out of town."
"What is your opinion of the situation at
"I am really not able to say anything
about the matter. Mr. Lynch, our Super
intendent at Connellsvilie, will meet a com
mittee of the men to-night; but what will be
the result I cannot loretelL I have not
given him any instructions in regard to the
meeting with the men."
Mr. Schoonmaker, who was also seen
coming from the Hecla Company's office,
said that there had not been a meeting. Mr.
Kutledge, of the Moore Coke Company,
stated the same, but remarked, with a very
"You better wait & few days longer, and
you will get some news on the coke
A WONDERFUL UNANIMITY.
The following special telegram from Scott
dale last night shows that the strike is
bringing things to a head rapidly:
bo far ns the manufacture of coke Is con
cerned the Connellsvilie region is dead to-day.
Never in the history of this region has there
been an agitation so uniformly successful as
the present strike. Every one of the 76 coke
plants and over 14,000 ovens are idle. As the
situation appears to-day. the strike will end
soon, favorably to the men. A preliminary
conference was held to-day and it is possible
the final settlement will be reached to-morrow.
The news of the success of the men in the
Gallitzin resrion was received with every evi
dence of satisfaction by tbe strikers here, and
they opine that it will materially advance
their chances ol success in this section. The
superintendent of one of the coke plants near
this place, when shown tbe telegram from
Gallium, said: "That settles the matter in this
rczlon. We must get our works started, or we
will lose our orders, and we cannot afford to do
It is possible the present week will see the
termination of tbe best planned and best con
ducted strike that ever occurred in the Con
An immense mass meeting was held here
this afternoon. It is estimated that nearly
6,000 strikers m ere in town. Tbey were in a
good humor, and seemed to be enjoying their
A SETTLEMENT IN SIGHT.
Later and more important advices from
Connellsvilie last night appeared to change
the whole situation. Tne special that
brought them is appended:
The conference between the representative
of the Frlck- company and strikers continued
until late this evening, and adjourned until
moraine, when a settlement will probably be
effected. It an agreement is reached with this
firm, it is thought the others will follow, and a
general resumption take place shortly.
Between 8.C00 and 9,000 strikers attended the
mass meeting ol miners and cokeworkcrs here
to-day. The meeting was undoubtedly the
lamest ever held in the Connellsvilie region,
and tbe greatest enthusiasm prevailed. Ad
dresses ere made by Master Workman Rae,
of National Miners' Assembly, K. of L; Peter
WiscSecretarv Vatchom.and Miehnoi niim.n
in which the strikers were congratulated for
the success so far attained, and praised for the
quiet and peaceable manner in which they
were conducting the strike.
Resolutions were then adopted declaring in
favor of establishing a uniform rate at once,
and fixing 1 cent per bnsbel as the minimum
rate. The men were then formed in line and
marched to town, where they were dismissed.
Notwithstanding the immense crowd on the
streets all day. not a single arrest for disorderly
conduct was reported.
THE COKE REGIONS STRIKE.
A Serious Situation That May be Satisfac
torily Settled by Conference nnd Conces
sions ALabor Organ's Views.
The Rational Labor Tribune, in its next
issue, will contain the following editorial
review of the coke regions strike: r '
It was on February 2 of this year that we
published an editorial in which the follow
When it became apparent that the Frick
Company lead in a scale was not to be followed
by the balance of the district, there conld be no
other conclusion man that the Frick rates
would come down to the lower level or the
other operators would have to bring their rates
up to the higher level of the Frick schedule.
There never was a considerable difference in
wages in the same district, under similar con
ditions as to terms of labor, that either tho low
er rate was compelled to meet the higher, or the
higher was broi ght down to the lower. The
surprise in the Connellsvilie instance has been
in the long delay to a movement in the one or
the other direction.
It was a year or more ago that this paper
fave its advice on the subject, namely, that the
rick scale set the rate for the entire region
that it was voluntarily given by tbe company,
and that the other operators should be com
pelled to pay the same ligure. It was
NOT FAIK TO THE COMPANY
that awarded without contest a better schedule
of wages, to permit competitors to have a lower
schedule. Nor was this fair to tbe workmen.
It was not fair to those who were paid the lower
rate, for they were entitled to more; it was not
fair to the Frick workmen, for a lower rate
elsewhere constantly threatened tneir wages.
The fact is that the Frick Company in adopt-
mc me scaie mat it did gave the workmen
about what could have been seenred for the
whole legion had that unfortunate d.fflculty
anent the "umpire's award" not occurred.
This company was fair and gave what was re
garded by the management, and by the large
operators generally, as a reasonable
scale of wares. The others
not so fair and did not act
so honorably and justly. It was then the duty
of the workmen to have insisted, and it wasour
plain advice, that the Frick scale be regarded
as the accepted price and that the district be
brought up to it without delay. There has
been a long season of constantly increasing out
put and demand for coke beyond the capacity
of transportation. That was the time the Frick
scale could have been made the unirorm dis
trict rate, yet little or nothing was done toward
that end; and now we find mat the disposition
to demand a uniform scale has developed at
la6t, but it comes when furnace yards are
stocked and the metal industries are not yet
pulled together sufficiently to know what to
do. There should be a uniform
scale on basis rates. The workmen are richt
In beginning an effort toward this; they would
have been nearer right had they begun when
we wanted ttem to, namely, when the Frick
scale was made and the other operators refused
to make a similar scale.
THE FEBRUARY AOBEEMENT.
It was only a tew days alter the appear
ance of the loregoing that an agreement

A SUEPBI8ED OFFICIAL.
The other day William Mullen, who was
secretary of the M. and L. A. A. and the
N. P. TJ., remarked to the correspondent of
a Pittsburg paper:
Retarding the present strike, I am somewhat
surprised to see the Frlck employes taking the
initiative and the others at work. The Frick
company paid higher wages man any ether
i toon 2vC ujauapreJ April
1, 18S9, and then only reduced metrites to the
average of wages paid at the other'works after
it was f onnd tnat the wages arbe other works
could not be bronght np.v ih'e Frick standard.
Futhermore, the present wages paid by the
Frick company apfl other conditions, such as
hours of labor, and a provision that six days'
uw.ux? w icuiu; ciuior eiuo uciore suspend
ing work, and she component parts of a scale
signed by tbprrepresentatlves of each one of
tbe Frick works in tbe region. Had the strike
been brought about at the other coke works in
the region, it is sale to say that no strike would
be needed at the Frick works, as that company
hasall along declared its willingness to pay any
wages or sign any scale agreed to by the other
It will be observed from all this that the
Frick men, having been unable to bring
the remainder of the district up to their
level of wages, came down to the lower
level of the other workmen. For two years
the Frick company had paid a material ad
vance on the wages paid by other operators.
This is greatly to the credit ot the company,
and should have secured them the services
of intelligent workmen, who then, as now.
should appreciate the consideration which,
for two years,
HELD UP WAGES
in the vain hope that the remainder of the
workmen of the district would level up to
the top rate. Yet the public sees these men
breaking faith disregarding an agreement
between themselves and the Prick com
pany. How must they be regarded by that
public? Why, simply as men who are so
unreliable that it is impossible tor an em
ployer to have business relations with them,
for it cannot be foreseen what agreement
they will or will not keep. Did not the
district have a sufficiently severe lesson in
the loss of hundreds of thousands in wages
by violation of the umpire's award, that
the men should deliberated refuse to ob
serve the agreement of February? And
now one of "the leaders" is quoted by the
press as saying that tbe agreement was
violated honorably, because all the re
gion had not agreed to it. That is a sillv
plea, for every man who has worked under
the agreement is as much bound by it as
thongli he had signed andsealed it. As for
the others, thev are entitled to no considera
tion from tbe Prick men, for the very good
reasontbat but for them the higher rate that
the Prick company paid for two years would
have yet been the rate. Furnace coke had
gone up as high as $1 60 during those two
years, yet nothing was done by the under
paid "remainder." In February it was
$1 25; in April, $1 15, and not well main
tained; then fl 05, and finally it looked as
though the 90-cent days were coming back.
Latterly it bas been $1, with pig metal
stocks increased some hundreds of thous
ands of tons over what they were at the close
of 1888, though with somewhat better pros
pects than was the case a month ago.
The scale suggested by the Knights of
Labor convention of April 13, and now the
demand, is: One dollar per 100 bushels for
mining room coal; 1 20 per 100 bushels for
mining heading coal and all other narrow
work; 52 10 per day of eight hours 'or drivers,
cagers, horsebackmen, timbermen, track
men and roperidera; chargers, 4c per oven;
GOc per 100 bushels of coal charged tor coke
drawing; 10c per oven for leveling; black
smiths, 1'2 25 per day; helpers, $1 85 per
day; carpenters, $2 35 per day; car greasers,
1 75 per day; all other classes of work in
OBSTACLE TO A- HIGH SCALE
is that it may be too heavy to carry its own
weight; tbe rate might require so large ad
vance in the price of coke as to curtail tbe
demand very,matenally; for there are other
coke regions, and furnace operators have a
way of using more largely than usual of
bituminous and anthracite coal when Con
nellsvilie rates go too high in' proportion to
those tnels. It would not be wise to touch
that point. It would be wise under all the
present aspects to make concessions on Doth
sides 'and thereby incur no loss from pro
longed shut-down, aud secure a higher rate
of wages and a better figure for coke. And
it would be wise for the Frick men to not
let the grass grow under their feet in
hustling back in pursuit of the honor they
dropped when they broke the agree
ment. The Frick company workmen
were for two years treated most honor
ably and liberally by the company, and
judging from that experience it is more
than probable that this treatment may be
continued if the parties in interest will but
come together resolved on a solution of the
trouble on business principles, which would
include what we recommended in our edito
rial advice of February 2, published in the
foregoing, namely, insistence that the rate of
the district be uniform. They can get the
February scale with a 6-cedt advance if
they follow this advice, and they know from
the'history of the last two years that the
National Labor Tribune gives good advice.
Better have your committee call on Super
intendent Lynch at once, and likely enough
it will end, if not nrecisely in a "love
feast," at least in something which will be
infinitely preferable to a prolonged strike.

Supreme Conrt Does Not Help Them.
Homer L. McGaw was quietly sitting in
a printing office on Fourth avenue yester
day afternoon when a reporter asked him
what would be the next move in the Jean
nette glass workers' case.
"Mr. Lyon did just what I expected he
would do," he said, "and, as far as I can
see, he could not do anything else but
recommend the return of the men to their
native country. I have no doubt that the
Secretary of the Treasury will indorse Mr.
Lvon's recommendation, and then the case
will be put in the hands of Robert D. Lay
ton, the Immigrant Inspector."
"But, suppose the case is appealed to the
"Well, I am not sure whether that can be
done. I have an idea that Secretary Win
dow's decision will be final. But even if
tbe case is taken before a higher tribunal,
the men will have to leave the country
while the case is being tried. They cannot
wait here till the Supreme Court's opinion
is known. If the decision should be in
their favor, they might come back; but, so
soon as the Secretary of the Treasury de
cides that these men were brought over here
in violation of the contract labor law, they
must go back. I helped to frame that law,
aud I ought to know something about it."

general discussion of matters of interest to
miners, two resolutions were passed. In
the first the action of the Connellsvilie
cokers, insisting on 1 cent per bushel for
mining coal, was unanimously indorsed.
In the second they resolved to financially
aid the striking coal miners of Indiana.

REACHING FOR NEW TERRITORY.
A Renewed Interest In Passenger Railways
for Oakland and Twenty-Third Ward
No Fear ofRlvals.
Promoters and builders of street railways
are of late stirring their stumps actively tor
the right of supplying locomotives to the Oak
land and Squirrel Hill districts. Mention has
already been made of the feeder to be built
on Atwood, Boquet and Ward streets for
the Pittsburg Traction Company. This is
to be furnished with power from Oakland.
Though the accepted ordinance only gives
the right to horse-power, that is so slow and
antiquated that, with the indorsement of
nearly all the property owners, an amend
ment is asked for, giving the privilege to
use electricity, which, it is supposed, as a
matter of course, will be passed at the next
session of Councils. Quick upon the heels
of a project to extend this line up Green
field avenue, and out toward a point opoo
posite Homestead, comes a charter to other
parties for an electric road from the junc
tion of Craft and Fifth avenues over WH
mot street to Sylvan avenue, and thence
along tbe same Greenfield avenue route.
This latter plan is supposed to hitch in
with the charters issued already for Forbes
and Diamond streets. It is thought to have
in view a through line competing with the
Pittsburg Traction. The Pittsburg Traction
people, however, seem to have the "call" on
the Greenfield avenue part ot the route, as
there was a lormer company chartered for
that route, with which they are understood
to be in negotiation.
One of the Traction people, who was
spoken to on the subject yesterday, said that
the latter company is not greatly trouoiea
by prospect of immediate or early competi
tion; that a good many things have tone
done before rights of way for an opposition
line are likely to be secured into the heart
of the citv, and that, as for the electric
rights in Oakland, they will hardly be re
fused when public convenience and the
property owners demand them, merely to
await undeveloped ideas in other directions.
The territory through which these new
roads will pass now consists mainlv of open
fields, but the common idea is that, with
means of travel furnished, it would become
rapidly settled and prosperously populous.
