the Problem Which the Railroad
Manaoers Are Now Studying No
jv Sinn of Relief
ot
zoail offlelals view
the Western Oj v tlOn with a groat
deal of alarm > Ait eceptIon ibcy
dei lare that unless ralu comes within he
next three days the entire corn crop ot
wveral States will be almost a totjl loa5
The States which are particularly alfecteil
uie Kansas Iowa Nebraska Missouri
Arkansas the Dakotas and a portion of
Wisconsin Kansas is probably the woist
sulTeier The loss Of the tiafllc tcprescnt
cd by tho corn erop of these States Is not
worrying railroad officials so much as tho
lobs that will como later If there is no
corn to fatten the cattle nud other stock
there will be no cattle and stock to cairy
to market In the fall and winter
This Is where the shoe pinches In the
railroad world and local ofllclals havo
finally admitted that tho situation Is to
be lewcd In a serious light The ques
tion of bow far the crop falluic will af
fect revenue as compared with last year
Is another matter The general opinion
tcems to be that most of tho Wiitcrp
roads wilt show as large freight earnings
as the did the previous year it not
larger It was expected however that
the year would be a recoul bleaker and
disappointment Is consequently great
The railroad men depend upon the
wheat crop to keep up tho averages of
last year In most of the States affected
the wheat crop haB been harvested and Is
out of the way of drouth and there is
nothing to be affected except the corn
For 1 number of years the corn carry
ing traffic has been but an infinitesimal
poitlon of the business of Western roads
tunning tlnough tho corn States The
time Is not long pissed when corn was
the mnln freight lmklng product of u
number of the Western States and the
tnllroads showed marked decrease In nn
mini earnings whenever there was an ex
tended failure of the corn crop
Iu late years however tho farmers have
been using gieat deal ot th r corn for
fuel and to fatten stock so that the com
traffic has fallen oft materially It has
however been the means of producln
much mote re omic than formerly becaube
of t he lnerei e In stock raising When
theiefoie there Is a failure of corn titer
Is a scarcity of meats and lle stock for
bhlpment
In cettaln sections notably tho Arkansas
vallev In Colotado the farmers are rals
ing a large acreage of alfalfa grass which
Is a good substitute for corn In fatten
ing stock but It Is not every soil that Is
adapted lo the growing of alfalfa
All of tho Western roads which extend
Into and through the drouth States re
celvc dnllv weather reports which are
carefullv Bcinnod Inquiry made today
at the offices of tho Northwestern St
laul Rock Island Santa Fc and Hurling
ton elicited the general statement thnt
there was nn tellef In sight In any of the
afflicted States
The general view of the situation was
exprcafed by President Purdy of the
Itock Island as follows
Unless there nro heavy rains within
the ncM two or three days the corn ciop
tit re > eral Western States will be a total
loss TJieio has been great damage done
already enough to make the situation n
serious one it Is Impossible to estimate
tho loss lo the farmets or to the railroads
In freight until the extent of tho damage
is known
So far as I have been able to learn
there Is no sign of relief In anv of the
Western States today and about all wc
can do Is to pray for rain to come
Forttmatelv for the railroads the whoatl
eton In the same States hasbeen harvest
ed and It Is greatly In oxcOfcB ot tho crop
last vear For this reason there may uol
be a great loss Iu tonllnge o > er last year
lint this does not help out the farmers
who are golnt to suffer this fall for lack
of coin to feed their stock

rittsburg Pa July 14 From present
Indications It looks probable that Presi
dent Shaffers strike order Issued last
night to tho Amalgamated association
members In the employ of tho American
Steel Hoop company the American Sheet
Steel company ami the American Tin Plate
company ill be obeyed nnd the great
ruggle between the Amalgamated asso
clntlou and the steel companies will bo on
In earnest tomorrow
In tho union mills ot the three companies
against wjiloh ft strike bus been declared
It Is predicted that not a wheel will turn
tomorrow
An effort wilt bo made also to close
flown some of tho nonunion mills and to
cripple the rcrlt
The strike was not of our own seeking
hald President Shaffer today It was
forced upon us Wo were not contending
for wngqs but for principle for solfprcs
crvatlon The tin and sheet people will
not be able to turn a wheol tomorrow We
ha > e our forces thoroughly organized and
there will bo some surprise In store llut
there will bo no trouble Labor organiza
tions have chauged The men are more
readily controlled In fact wo have our
men under control
Developments today Indicate that Pitts
burg Is going to be a pretty lively strike
center iho most Interest attaches to tho
Painter mill on the joiith side nnd to
that of Lindsay nnd Mrf teheon In Alle
gheny Doth mills nro controlled by the
American Steol Hoop coinpjuy and have
hitherto been aggressively nonunion and
much depended upon the action taken by
the men In theso plants The employe ot
both mills today decided to strike tomor
row
i W Jouks manager of the American
Steel Hoop company said tonight that both
mills would lesutno tomortow morning as
usual
Tho fight at the Painter mill Is to be
made tho fight of tho strike Both sides
will make stubborn resistance It the
Amalgamated people can close this mill
they believe they vlll hae won the great
er partvof the stride Tflt mill 18 not
uiily an Important opt > ttut the steel hoop
company has for ycays Hccceedcd in thwart
ing the efforts made to unionize It
At the conference Intit week the repre
sentatives of tho Steel Corporation were
repeatedly warned that ilic association was
much strongepthan they Uicw They were
even told xif thl or anlzatlon ot mills or
Which they luiif no Knowledge But the
steel men would m > t believe that the as
soclatlon was as strong as It chimed to
be Thus It Is believed the first purpose of
the association Is to show Its strength bj
confining tho strike to three companies
When that show of strength has beeu made
whatever It may prove to be the associa
tion expects the companies to ask for an
other conference If the companies show
no Inclination to make n settlement the
strike will be extended to three more com
panies If the trust will not yield then
the strike will be extended to such Inde
pendent companies as sell tbelr finished
products or raw materials to companies
against which a strlko has been declated
Should the strike attain such proportions
It would be likely to go still further The
Amalgamated association and the Federa
tion of Labortwo years ago formed a
secret alltanco It Is claimed when It was
agreed that the association when on a
strike could also call out the steel men
ot the Federation The latter has organ
izations In many raljls whose workmen arc
not eligible to membership In the associa
tion
President Shaffer late tonight said he re
ceived on Saturday night from the Ameri
can Steel Hoop company officials n re
quest for tho Amalgamated wage commit
tee to meet them at tho Hotel Lincoln
ucxt week Tho proposition tho company
made was that they would algn the scale
for the puddling department ot the Lind
say McCutcheon mill Mr Shaffor said
be Imitation was refused because the
association could sign only for the entire
ilaut Including puddlers finisher and all
Uhcr skilled men alike
President Shaffer also announced that to
norrow he would preparo a circular letter
vhlch will bo mailed tomorrow evening
0 reach member of the association em
ployed by any mill operating a constituent
plant of tho United States Steel corpora
Jon The letter will state fully the pres
ent conditions facing the workmen the
cagons for tho failure of the conference
i f last week and order every man to go on
t strike to uphold tho principle Involved
In addition to tho 71000 men already af
fected by the original strike order calling
out tho sheet steel steel hoop and tin
workers this general order will Increase
the number to more than 1D0O00 and
will Involve the Federal Steel company
the Nntlonal Steel company nnd the Na
tional Tube company
Flvo thousand workmen In Wheeling and
lclnlty will be affected by the strike
Warner Ames president of the American
Steel Hcop company said then I am
orry that our friendly relations In the
past
should have to be broken In this
to
way We have dono all In our power
tnoet UiIh trouble In an amicable manner
With this Dreach onco opened It must be
understood that the onus la op the sjdo ot
the Amalgamated association and the pub
lic will understand this
Wbllo keenly regretting the break In the
peace of the relations between tbo organ
ization ond the manufacturers Prcsldant
Shaffer said that there seemed no other
courso to pursue His offer to the hoop
company to reconstruct the scale for cotton
le and l oop mill was one of the moat
important sacrifices that bad ever been
offered by the association and In addition
In offering to exclude the tin plate mills

proposition of the Amalgamated associa
tion J10 was grunting the manufacturers
their most Piirnest wish of recognizing tho
Individual responsibility of each ot tho con
stituent corporations of the parent organ
ization known as the United States Steel
corporation Their rrfuxal was a surprlso
to tho Aninlganiatlou men
Willis L King vice chairman ot the
board ot managers ot Jottus Laughlln
an Independent corporation said today
Mr Morgan and his associates as I tin
durstand It arc not opposed to unionism
wherever It exists but they nre opposed to
taking such a slop as will necessitate their
nonunion employes Joining tho Amalga
mated association It In these nonunion
mills the Amalgamated association has such
a hold ns It claims then In my judgmcut
It Is it very easy matter and only right that
It should show Its strength and If tho
mnjorlty of the employes are in favor ot
organizing possibly It would bo In a bet
ter position to go before a board of arbi
tration nnd ask conttol nt such mill or
mills but it It has not such r majority
I can not see any Justice In Its claims
Should the fight become very bitter and
bo long drawn out I can see no earthly
hope of the worklugmen winning They
could cause much trouble but I do not
think they could over como out victorious
I can seo no possible chance of a sym
pathetic strike upon the part ot the nou
unlonlsts
A report from Newcastle Ta tonight
says Fully 4000 men will bo affected In
this city by tho Amalgamated strike Ot
these 2000 are employed In the Sheuaugo
plant and 1400 In the Greer plant of tho
American Tin Plato cCmpauy and 000 nt
tho steel plant ot the National Steel com
pany Tho men of the latter mill were
not called out by President Shaffer but
notices were posted there today stating
that tho plant will not be In operation to
morrow The hot mills departments of
both the Grocr and Shenango plants will
be ldlo tomorrow affecting 000 men at
the former and 000 at tho latter Thene
dcpaitmeuts are untuned exclusively by
Amalgamated men The bslance of the
employes of both plants are either unor
ganized cr affiliated with the Inlet national
Protective Association ot Plato Workers
Unougb black plate Is now on hnnd at
cither place to laur only two weeks when
both plants will be thrown Into total Idle
ness until the Amalgamated men resume
work In the hot mills whlrh turn out black
plate for the other departments to work
Tte local members of the Amalgamated
association are highly pleased over the
decision to strike They will staud by
President Shaffer to a man Tomorrow
morning not ono wheel will be turned In
either the Oreer or Shenango tin mills the
largest plants of the kind In the country
The men are ready for a long strlko They
have been preparing for this light for
months Newcastle Is one of tho strongest
union cities Jn tho country The tin work
ers who are not members of tho Amalga
mated also feol a vital interest Iu the pres
ent situation Local men believe this will
be the greatest strike In the history of
the country They will offer no violence
At Greenville some 700 men will be af
fected b the strike and tho groat majori
ty are favorable to a hojd out to the end
In support of tha demands of their lead
ers The members of thp Amalgamated asso
ciation employed In the Pittsburg and

The Post tomorrow will say Fifty
