Monster Meetings in Spite of the Injunc

in Forty- Eight Hours.
PITTSBURG, Aug. 2.— At 1:15 this
(Monday) morning, the strikers at
Camp Determination were aroused and
500 men ordered to march to Sandy
Creek and 500 to Plum Creek mines.
The marches began with President Pat
rick Dolan heading the force going to
Sandy Creek. After proceeding a short
distance, Dolan was served with a
writ ehargmg him with riot and un
lawful assembly at the Instance of
Thomas P. D e Armitt. For a time
great excitement prevailed among the
marchers, but Dolan quieted them by
saying that he would be all right and
scon join them. He was then taken
back to the justice's office and the
marchers proceeded. Secretary War
ner, Organizer Cameron Miller and
other leaders are included in the writ.
A citizen of Turtle Creek stands ready
to furnish ball for Dolan, and it i 3
presumed he will be released. The inci
dent has caused a very ugly feeling
among the strikers, and if the other
leaders included in the order of ar
rest should be stopped in their work,
decidedly vigorous action will likely be
taken at the big meeting this morning.
PITTSBURG, Pa,, Aug. I.— All roads
led to Turtle Creek today. Marching
miners from all over the district were
converging toward Camp Determina
tion, and if all those reported as being
on the march reach the scene before
morning there will be at least 6,000 dig
gers present at the big meeting, which
is scheduled for 11 o'clock at McCrea's
school house. The miners expect 8,000
to be on hand.
The borough of Turtle Creek experi
enced the liveliest day in its history
with Its large transient population of
miners and curious visitors, but the
day passed without trouble of any kind.
Burgess Teats, of the borough, visited
the miners' camp today, and said he had
no reason to order the crowd to dis
band. There was a complete shift In
the make-up of the campers today.
The men from the Wheeling division of
the Baltimore & Ohio, who have been
oti guard ever since the big movement
against the De Armitt men was inaugu
rated, left during last night for their
hrmes at Finleyville, Gastonv lie, Snow
den, Whitehall and Banksville. These
same men, after reaching home and re
cuperating somewhat, have formed new
divisions an r J are returning to the seat
of war in order to attend the big meet
ing in the morning. While the old
guard was flitting last night, new men
were taking their places and took
charge of the watch that is to be*kept
up until all of the New York & Cleve
land men quit work.
Sheriff Lowry spent the afternoon in
Turtle Creek consulting with his depu
ties. Chief Deputy James Richards
was in the district all night. Sheriff
Lowry said that he would not interfere
With the strikers in holding meetings,
if they acted orderly. He will not al
low them to go on the property of the
New York & Cleveland Gas Coal com
pany, nor will he allow them to act
disorderly while marching on the road.
T. B. De Armitt, manager of the Oak
Hill mine, said today that he had been
importuned by men for positions in the
mine. He said he had given fifteen of
them places, and they would go to work
in the morning. He added that two
men had offered to supply him with
fifty good miners to go to work Thurs
day morning. He was receiving letters^
in every mail from miners in various
portions of the district, asking for
places in the New York & Cleveland
mines. Concerning the action of some
of his men, he said they had come to
him, saying that they would be glad to
work as soon as the excitement is over.
He was emphatic in the statement that
if the old men did not return to work
soon, he had many others who would
take their places. Secretary Warner
says the miners' officials have decided
to bring an action in equity against
Sheriff Lowry, asking for an injunc
tion restraining that official from ex
ecuting the provisions of the procla
mation. He said the proclamation was
in violation of law and they would go
into court to have that point settled.
"I believe the proclamation is illegal,'"
said Warner, "and we are going to
try and find out if the sheriff has a
right to interfere with a peaceable
FAIRMONT, W. Va., Aug. I.— "There
Is a surprise in store for the operators
of this region," said John W. Rea to
night. "Inside of forty-eight hours there
will be several additions to those out."
There is more in Rea's words than
many people think. He has been here
since last Wednesday and has had two
or three meetings each day. Not in
the usual way, but has quietly gone to
some school hourse or public hall, and
the miners have gathered there as if
by magic. This afternoon at Mononga
ttela, the meeting was a repetition of
the si' .cess at Palatine last night, and
Catawaba yesterday afternoon. To
morrow at Worthington, he will make a
speech to the men. Four more organiz
ers will join Mr. Rea and Ed Davis, his
aide, tomorrow. Davis went to Clarks

elated over the prospects and thinks
West Virginia will yet come out. Ma
hon telegraphed from Charleston today
that the Kanawha and New river men
had struck for 50 cents a ton and a
check weighman. Rea says he intends
to call on Special Judge John W. Mason,
who granted the injunction, tomorrow,
and that he wants to know what the
judge means. He does not know
whether the injunction attempts to ke;-p
him from holding meetings in the pub
lic roads or not. Tonight there are
mere signs of a general laying down
of picks than there has been since the
strike began. None of the operators
have contracts of more than ten days
in length, and the men say if they do
not come out, the other miners will go
back, and they will return to the 25
WHEELING, W. Va., Aug. I.— There
has been a decrease in the amount of
coal coming out of the Fairmont
region on the B. & O. road, compared
with the same period last week. Last
week the average number of cars re
ceived at Bellaire was 200, now the
average is probably not over 100. Last
week the Wheeling & Lake Erie was
handling 75 to 100 cars daily, now not
more than fifty cars are handled. The
Cleveland, Lorain & Wheeling compari
son is the same as the Wheeling &
Lake Erie. In the Wheeling district
the condition is full of uncertainty.
The break at Bogg's Run has made it
very difficult to keep the men at Glen
dale, Moundsville and Randell Grove
out. Some are working now, but this
week will witness a desperate effort
to make the suspension general
throughout the district. The operators
claim to be sure of their ability to
keep at least half of their usual num
ber of men at work.
Interest in West Virginia is centering
on the "Miners' day" demonstration,
recommended at the late Wheeling con
ference of the labor leaders of the
country. Although the assignments of
speakers have not yet been made by
President Gompers, of the American
Federation of Labor, it is said he will
send his best men into this state with
the hope that a result of the demon
stration will be the tying up of the
mines throughout the state. At the
Wheeling meeting it is probable Ma
hon, who is in charge in West Virginia,
will be the principal speaker.
SCOTTDALE, Pa., Aug. I.— Coroner
Owens today held an inquest over the
remains of William S. Cummings, the
non-union mill worker w r ho was killed
last night during a quarrel with strik
ers. A large number of witnesses were
examined, but the only one who gave
positive testimony was Constable
Longanecker, who testified that he was
standing within a few feet of the par
ties when the shooting took place, and
plainly saw the flash and smoke from
the revolver beside William C. Hubbs.
The jury found Hubbs and he
was at once arrested. * The town to
night is quiet.
AGREED O\ A SCALE.
Puddlers Accept the FignreM Of-
IVrcil by Muntifaettiri't-s.
TOUNGSTOWN, 0., Aug. L— lt was
daylight this morning before the iron
manufacturers and the puddlers of the
Amalgamated association conference
committee agreed on a scale for pud
dling. There were twenty-five puddlers
on the amalgamated committee of 100,
and the puddlers had the say about
accepting or rejecting the proposition
directly affecting them. The puddlers
made several attempts to effect a
compromise" and obtain $4.25 a ton for
puddling, but the manufacturers posi
tively refused to recede from their de
mand for a reduction from $4.50 to $4.
When the puddlers held their last se
cret meeting to consider the matter the
vote stood 13 to 12 in favor of tp.King
the whole reduction, and this portion
of the difficulty was at an end. The
new scale adopted is as follows:
Four dollars a ton on a 1 cent card
rate; $4.25 on a 1.1 cent card rate; $4.75
on a 1.3 rate; $5 on a 1.4 rate, and $5.25
on a 1.5 rate; a 1 cent card rate mean
ing when bar iron is selling for 1 cent
a pound, etc.
An adjournment was taken at 7
o'clock this morning until 10 o'clock
Monday morning, when it is expected
the finishers' scale will be adjusted,

NEW YORK, Aug. I.— The general strike
of the Pants Makers' union, a branch of the
Socialist Trades Alliance, went Into effect to
day In the two hundred and fifty shops in the
Greater New York district. The strikers are
enthusiastic, and believe this effort on their
part will end the sweating system, and will
restore the old rate of wages. Under the
present system they are able to make only
$1.50 for a week's work. Under the old
schedule, which they want restorpd, the opera
tors made from $10 to $12 a week. There are
nearly three thousand operators out, and in
consequence of the strike five thousand fin

adding: "Nor is it likely that Germany's

papers express similar opinions. All
are agreed that a great step has been
taken, which wni bring England noth

WASHINGTON, Aug. I.— The mean
est man in Washington came here from
Minnesota. That statement was made
to me by a senator from an Eastern
state. He said that the Minnesota man
was trusted with a fund of $120 per
month, to divide between himself and
a young lady stenographer. The young
lady is an orphan, having lost her
father and mother when she was very
young; and she is now not more than
nineteen years old. She has learned
short hand and typewriting and sup
Instead of giving that little girl her
$60 per month, the Minnesota man, who
is a man of property, and well to do,
gave the little girl only $5 per week,
and kept the rest of the money himself.
The little girl feared to say anything,
because she supposed the Minnesota
man would discharge her if she com
plained; and she had to find board and
lodging, and cloth herself, on $5 per
week; while the Minnesota man kept
the money which she earned.
Accidentally, the senator who had
trusted the Minnesota man heard of
this blood money proceeding, and he
put a stop to it. He denounced the
Minnesota sneak thief, and hereafter
he will draw the money himself, and
see to it that the little girl gets her
pay. She is an innocent, hard working
little body; and how any man with
any particle of conscience could have
rebbed her in such a sneakthief man
ner is beyond comprehension. The
senator tells me that he is a whining,
pretentious church member, and a lead
er in prayer meetings.
And yet some people believe there Is
no hell and no need for such a place.

MARQUETTE, Mich., Aug. I.— Land
Commissioner Binger Hermann has
Bent back to the Marquette land ofnee
the contest between the Michigan Land
and Iron company and the settlers.
This will cause an open court contest
for 50,000 acres of land and may Jeop

much. The land claimed by the Mich
igan Land and Iron company is the
old Marquette, Houghton & Ontonagon
railroad grant, which was given to aid
the construction of a line from Mar
quette to Ontonagon in ISSI. It con
sists of 460,000 acres. Since passing to
the new corporation its title has been
in dispute, and settlers have squatted
on 50,000 acres of the best homesteads.
The company filed an application for
patents covering swamp, timber and
mineral lands. The commissioner's ac
tion in granting an open hearing in
the land office requires all the settlors
to be notified, and the company v will
have to prove in open court that it
comes under the railroad grant con
firmatory act passed in 18S7. The sot
tiers say it will be impossible to do
this, and are rejoicing in their victory.

Tariff Will Injure Commerce
WASHINGTON, Aug. I.— ln a late
number of the Congressional Record,
containing speeches on the tariff con
ference report, is a speech by M. N.
Johnson, of North Dakota, in which he
makes a compilation of the protests re
ceived by the state department from
the representatives of foreign govern
ments against certain duties imposed
in the Dingley tariff bill, while that
measure was pending. Some of these
protests have been made public, others
have been referred to the committees
of congress having the tariff bill in
charge and little or no attention has
been paid to them. Nearly all these
communications revert to the commerce
between the several countries and the
United States. They in.- Ist that the new
tariff will retard that commerce, and
some of them intimate that it will ti -
suit in decreasing the demand tor
American goods. Among thus,' filing
protests are Denmark. Italy, Belgium,
Turkey, Switzerland and England.
Pome of tho ministers disclaim any in
tention to interfere in the international
affairs of the United States, but make
the representations for the benefit of
the commerce between the countries.
