THE PITTSBURG DISPATdH, WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER T, .1892.
THE EIGHT-HOM LAW.
The Builders' Eichanw Will Talk on
This Question To-Day.
TWO MORE AMALGAMATED LODGES
Tin Flate Manufacturers Discuss the
CDEEEXT ETEXTS IX E1E0E CIECLES
Bome icportant questions will come np
for discussion at the meeting of the Build
ers Exchange to-day. The attendance
promises to be unusually large.
At the last meeting a resolution Tvas in
troduced, but held over, favoring the adop
tion of the eight-hour lasr by the Exchange.
The resolution was printed and mailed to
each member, informing them when it
would come up.so that they could be present
The issuing of these resolutions has met
with a hearty response irom all the mem
bers, and the lines between those who favor
or oppose them are clearly drawn.
"While this question has been often
brought up in the Exchange and as often
opposed, it is thought the conditions now
are 80 changed that a majority of the mem
bers will favor the adoption of the eight
Preparing Tor Next Tear's Work.
The discussion of this question at this
time is particularly pertinent The year's
work is about over and plans are being laid
for the coming season. For this reason the
question is brought up, so as to allow ample
time for discussion. It is not likely that
any final action will be taken at to-doy's
meeting, as the opinions of the members
seem to be prettv evenly divided. This
promises a determined contest
The chief objections come from the own
ers of planing mills and manufacturing
concern, as they claim should eight hours
become a legal day's work they could not
do ttie required work in that time with
their present equipment This would ne
crssitate an increase in their plant of both
machinery and men, and they will oppose
the resolutions to a man. As opposed to
this element are those who claim that wbilo
n increase in the plants would be neccs
tarv a two-turn svsteni conld-be adopted,
and the manufacturers would not only.se
cure a greater output, but the aluc ot the
concernFwould be enhanced. The adop
tion of the system of hourly compensation
will also be discussed. This system is now
in vocrue in many parts of the couutry, but
chiefly in the shops of large corporations.
Favor Paying by the Ilonr.
The members of the Exchange seem to be
pretty generally in favor of this plan and
therj will likely be little opposition to the
plan, though it is not probable that it will
be acted upon at to-day's meeting, as the
eight-hour law will take precedence,it being
considered the most important at this time.
The question with the builders is how will
eucji a change be accepted by the workmen,
as they have not yet intimated how they
look upon such a move.
Another question that will demand much
attention is the holding a conention of all
the exchanges in Western Pennsylvania,
Eastern Ohio and West Virginia in this city
in a short time. This subject has been agi
tated for some time, and at the last meeting
a committee was appointed to make the
necessary recommendations. Since the
withdrawing of the Pittsburg Exchanje to
gether with nearlv all within a radius of
100 miles of the city, from the National
Exchange at the last National Convention
these exchanges have existed as indepen
dent organizations. There has been a grow
ing Jeeling for cliser unity of these bodies,
and a meeting tor a general discussion of
questions relating to the trade is probable.
The Exchange here has about 1,000 mem
brs, the largest membership of "any ex
change in the country, and would take the
responsibility of such a move. No date has
been set yet, but it is thought it will be
near the middle of January.
TO ADOPT BES0LTJTI0H8.
The Prosecution or the Sand Diggers Occu
pying the Attention of Kivermen.
The Pittsburg Coal Exchange held a
meeting yesterday morning. It was not
xerg well attended, as it had been hastily
called to take action on the death of Joseph
"Walton. A committee, consisting of Harry
Brown, S. L. Wood, B. T. Wilson and
Secretary Tilley, was appointed to draw up
resolutions and present them at a meeting
The prosecution of the sand diggers who
persist in leaving the river bed in such a
lumpy condition as to senouslv interfere
with navigation was the principal subject
of comment among the members, though
nothing more -was done than urge that
more evidence be gotten aeainst the sand
companies for suitsto be entered soon.

The Puddlinc; Tnrnaccs at New Castle May

A special from New Castle says that
during the past year the chanced conditions
in the manufacture of iron have been
severely felt by the puddlers of New Castle.
A great many puddlers have been laid off,
and at the present time there are no less
than ten idl fnnttn., t k. !,.. :n

mated Association are ei-Presldent William
"Weihe, Vice President W. A. Carney and
"William E. Hubbard, of Hubbard, O.
At this convention it is expected that a
number ot questions of great importance to
the labor world will come up for discussion.
The Federation took a prominent part in
the Homestead strike, and this struggle
will come in lor its share in the discussion.

The Last or the Carnegie Works at Beaver
Palls Begin Operations.
A special from Beaver Falls last night
says: The Carnegie Company's nail mill
resumed operations this morning on single
turn with about 150 men at work. In case
the former wirej drawers who are now in
other cities report for duty and the wire
mill gets to running ftill-handed so that
enough wire can be turned out, the nail
mill will go on double turn the latter part
of next week. Peter Crane, of Salem, O.,
the new superintendent of the nail mill, ar
rived this afternoon and will take charge at

A special from Monongahela City says:
The colored miners employed at the Cats
burg mines quit work, yesterday and
brought out their tools. They want an ad
vance in their wages, and say tbey will not
return until they get it The present strike' '

THE TIN PLATE INDUSTRY.
Tho Scml-Annual Convention or Manufact
urers Held In This City Tho Probable
Bepeal of the TSIcKinley Bill Discussed
Ths View Taken of the Situation.
The tin plate manufacturers of the United
States held their semi-annual meeting in
the office of Secretary Jarrett yesterday.
The meeting was well attended, there being
representatives here from all parts of the
country. This was the first meeting since
the election, and the result received the
greater portion of the discussion.
This industrv was directly dependent
upon the McKmley bill, and the prospects
for its repeal being bright, this industry is
considered in a precarious position. Plants
have been built in all parts of the country,
but they have not been in operation long
enough to become firmlv established. The
early repeal of the McKinley Bill would
likely work great'injury to the tin -plate
industry, though the manufacturers took a
hopeful view of the situation and decided
to go ahead with the work as rapidly as pos
sible. Thev considered that entirelv too manv
plants had been built and too much capital
invested to allow the present plans to drop
through. The opinion as expressed that
they could stand tinkering with the tariff
as well as many other industries and need
not be afraid, as the price of work will fall
with a change, and all in all they took a
hopeful view of the situation. No special
effort will be made to hare the law kept as
it is, as it is thought remonstrances from
workmen employed in this industry will be
sufficient to prevent any radical change in
the tariff relating to the tin plate xnanuia:i-
New Amalgamated Lodges.
The Amalgamated Association has estab
lished two new lodges during the past few
davs. One is at the New Castle Steel Works,
of New Castle, at which about 200 men are
emplnved. The other was at the Benwood
Iron Works, of Benwood, W. Va., at which
about 100 men are employed. The New
Castle works started up only a short time
ago, while the Benwood works have just
started, alter lying idle for a long time.
WANTED MORE CAKES.
Mrs. Scanlon Could Not Satisfy Her Hus
band With Twelve A Lover Who Pur
sued Her Until She Married Him
Forced From Home a Dozen Times.
Twelve times Mrs. Thomas Scanlou was
forced to leave her husband, but she was
brought back every time, only finally to be
thrown into the street with her aged father
because she wouldn't bake more than 12 po
tato cakes apiece for her husband and his
two boys. Mrs. Scanlon, accompanied by
her father, who is about 65 years of age, ap
plied to Central station about midnight
Monday for shelter. They were given quar
ters lor the night and were referred in the
morning to the Anti-Cruelty Society.
The story told by Mrs. Scanlon is an ex
traordinary one. "She said: "I have left
my husband 12 times on account of his
cruelty, but each time he has brought me
back by sending officers after me. I even
went as far as Kansas City to escape him,
but was brought bsck from there. I wen
to the police station on the Southside to
day and told them it would be useless to
send foj me again, for I would never re
turn. We have been married three years.
My-husband, his mother and his two chil
dren by his first wife live in the house we
occupied on Excelsior street, Southside.
He makes good wages, but lie never gave
me enough for provisions for the house. T
couldn't get money from him to clothe my
self. My father, although very rioor, bought
me clothes. Jlv husband almost forced me
to marry him. I was a waitress in a board
ing Louse, He commenced to take his
meals there, and almost as soon commenced
to make love to me. I tried to evade him,
and finally left the place. As often as I
changed my place he followed me. He has
treated me frightfully since I married liini,
but in this regard he makes no distinction
with his 80-year.rild mother, who lives with
"Monday I had done a big day's washing
and was very tired. We had potato cakes
for supper, one of hh favorite-dishes, and
after bending over the hot stove cooking 12
cakes each for the boys and my husband,
he ordered me to cook more. I refused and
all evening long until he got out of bed at
11:30 o'clock to go to work (he worked on
night turn), he abused me. Then he took a
poker and threatened to kill me. I called
my lather, who had come up from his home
in Wheeling to look for work and was stay
ing with us overnight My husband com
menced to abuse him irightfullv. He then
told us both to leave the house at once,
hurling vile epithets after us. I am now
determined to get rid of this man for slavery
days are over and I know I can make a liv
ing for invself."
The Anti-Cruelty Societv took Mrs. Scan
lon before Alderman Cahill, where informa
tions were made against the husband for
surety of the peace and non-support The
society will see that Mrs. Scanlon's case is
properly presented in the courts. '
