A RADICAL CHANGE

P1TT8BITRG R, Pa., Aug. 7. David B.
Oliver, yesterday, discussing the pro
position of the manufacturers sub
mitted to the Amalgamated associa-,
tion to arbitrate the wage scale differ
ences, said: I am convinced that un-
the . Amalgamated association
makes a radical change in its methods
the manufacturers will be obliged ta
free themselves completely from its con
trol and that very soon. Year by year
matters have drifted into the condition
that brings about a total stoppage of
business for from four to six weeks
each recurring scale-signing period.
With our works stopped and our
non-union competitors hare and all over
the country in operation thia ia a very
nnbnain ess-like management and must
be changed. The matter is aggravated
by the fact that of all the manu
facturers of structural material m the
country, all bnt three or four are out
side of the Amalgamated association
and can make contracts and deliveries
at a ruinous disadvantage. '
Despite the desire of the manufactur
ers for peace, all these drawbacks and
discriminations are working the manu
facturers to theonon-union point, and
nnlesa the Amalgamated changes its
eonrse we will be forced to get there.'

Philadelphia, Aug. 0. The pa
pers were signed in Kew York Thurs
day for the new pipe line..- which
threatens to become a formidable rival
of the Standard Oil Co. For a long
time the independent refiners and pro
ducers of the old oil fields in the west
art part of the state have been seeking
to secure a free outlet for their pro
duct, and by this latest movement they
think they have succeeded.
The new line will start at Bradford
and ran directly eastward to a point
on the Kew York, Ontario A Western
railroad, at or near Hancock, N. Y.;
thence it will follow the line of the
railroad to Kewbnrgh, on the Hadsoa
river, where it ia proposed to erect re
fineries, or where the oil can be shipped
to New York by rail or boat
The pipe line will be IIS miles long.
and will cost about $ll,00d,00u. The
right of way has been obtained for the
entire distance, and it is expected to
have the line in operation by spring.
The new line ia backed by the members
of the Independent Producers' Pro
tective association. ...
