Xew York, May & Henry C. Frick,
a the Carnegie Steel company, of Pitts-
burg, and K. H. A. Gray, secretary and
treasurer of the Illinois teel company, of
Chicago, are in town. These two gentle
men represent the largest steel Interests
In the country, and the fact that they
were together at the same hotel gave
rise to a rnmor that they were here for
conference upon the steel business.
"Has the demand for steel Increased to
nchan extent that the PennsylTanla
companies have increased wages as Is
rumore 1 by dispatches in the dally
press?" Frick was asked.
"I have noticed no such an Increase, If
there has been one, and I do not believe
that any companies are going to raise
wages just at present," was his answer.
Mo Immediate Raise of Waft-en, i
Later he said that while business Is in
creasing and there Is a more active de
mand for rails and structural iron the
business la not in a condition which he
hopes it will attain. Gray, In answer to
a question, laid: "With our company
business has been very bad, but Is im
proving, and I am in hopes that we shall
have a better year than we had last.
Our company has just erected and has
had in operation for the last six weeks a
plate mill which Is turning out a great,
many orders. As far as wages are con
cerned I think they will tie raised, but I
think that any statement that they are
to bo raised immediately is premature."
BIOTOFS STRIKE AT STEEL WORKS.
Laborers at Konth Chicago Have To Bo
Charged by the 1'ollee.
1 Chicago, May 8. About a month ago
the men employed in the South Chicago
works of the Illinois Seeel company quit
work because of a reduction from $i 10 to
11.60 per day. Hungarians and Poles were
employed in their places, but they also
have become dissatisfied and concluded
that they were doing too much work for
the money. The result is that of the 3,
6U0 men employed 1,3U0 have struck, clos
ing two furnaces, with the prospect that
the other four will also have to shut down,
the strike promising to spread.
The dissatisfied employes were nnder
the contract system and bad agreements
to work for a year, three weeks of that pe
riod having now expired. As the men
began quitting they lined up across tho
street from the mill gates and discussed
their claims. They woro quiet and no
demonstrations of violence were noticea
ble until news of the strike became
known and applicants were seen enter
ing the mill. So violence was then of
fered, but the talk became nioro decided,
- and some of tho men spoke as though
troublo might bo expected in tho future.
The strikers were quiet for awhile, but
when they saw numbers of men applying
for work they began to get angry, and it
was not long before they attacked the
men at work. Police were sent for, and a
detachment, soon arrived. The police
charged the mob, but they stood their
ground, and it was only by free use of
clubs and firing thoir revolvers over the
heads of tho mob that it was forced to re
tire. Four men two officers, a striker,
and a machinist were seriously injured.
Twenty -eight ni"n who were said to be
tho leaders were arrested and locked up.
These police officers all received bruises
and contusions more or less severe from
pieces of slag thrown by the rioters. Fred

Sharon, and the Sharpsvllle and Sharon
furnace, at Sharpsvllle, the men have
shown no disposition to strike, but things
are so unsettled that there is no telling
when they will come out. Manufacturers
have stopped shipments of coke.

Cosio, Colo., May 8 The coroner's
Jury has found the killing of School Di
rectors Wyatt, Taylor and McCardy, of
the Tars tall district, by Benjamin Rat
cliffe to be felonious. The triple murder
was the outgrowth of a most unsavory
scandal. Katcliffe lives with his two
young daughters alone. The girls have
never been allowed to visit the town or
even neighbors. A few months ago pas
sersby claimed to have seen things re
flecting upon the father. Ratellffe had a
dislike for the school board because they
bad refused to build a school house on his
ranch and he imagined the members
originated the story about hi in.

, This week he heard of a rumor that his
daughters were in a delicate condition
for which he was held responsible. He
went to the school house, knowing that
the school directors would be together. He
waited for awhile for E. R. Crosier, whom
he also connected with the matter, to ar
rive. Finally he entered the school house
and killed his enemies. Crosier was only
saved by his tardinees. Leaving, Kat
cliffe went toward Coma, looking for Cro
sier, but missed him. A meeting of citi
zens was held at Jefferson and arrange
ments made to go to Fairplay to lynch
Katcliffe, but Sheriff Wilson hustled his
prisoner away and his whereabouts are

Williams entered her shop at 8 o'clock on
the night of her disappearance. She had
her hair dressed, leaving the shop at 8:25.

Touchers but what is all straight as far

"The employes in the office said they
thought they ought to be paid for wots:
they did for the state during the inaugu
ration. I proposed to pay them out of
my own pocket. They would not listen
to my proposition to pay them, but insist
ed that tha work was done foJahe state
and the state should pay for it They
asked that the vouchers be made to read:
"For extra services during the legisla
ture," but I would not listen to that.
The money involve.! in the vouchers has
all been covered back into the state treas
