Those Interested in Conference
as to Steel Workers'
THE PEACE EIT0ET8 MAY FAIL
Status of the Situation at Pitts
burg Late This After
noon. IMtsburg, Au. 1. The third pcs
slon of the meeting of tho executive
board of the Amalgamated association
began at 10 o'clock this morning with
full attendance. Decisive action,
either for continued war or peace, is
expected tcday. President Shaffer
ppears to be exceedingly anxious to
iriDg about a settlement, but it does
at t seem that he will be successful in
persuading tbe m j irity c f his asso
ciates unlesa be will be able to obtain
tome modification of tbe terms laid
down by the big corporation. The
unsettled condition of affairs has pro
duced great restlessness among those
mteretted in the outcome, and while
everybody fervently brpes today will
ormg an end to tbe strife, many are
rittsTnirp, Aiijr. 1. outside of th in
ner Hivl of tlit A nialauiatotl asso
ciation oxpfiitivo Ixjjinl wliii li has Ixmmi
considering Hie proposals for a ettle-
ment of the steel strike for two days
without agreement, uoliod.v knows
how tb matter stands. How the niciii-
lert of the hoard feci Is known to no
man on the outside. The seeontl tiny
of tlie executive lniard's deliberations
was notable for the many rumors in
circulation and for the conspicuous
dearth of results. The absence of
three of the principal member of the
Iwiiirtl from the sessions gave rise to
the story that the meinltcrs were di
vided in their ideas of the peace pro
posals, and that in order to satisfy
all Secretary Williams hail leeu sent
to w York to seek modifications at
the hands of Morgan d Schwab,
while Assistant Secretary Tighe and
Trustee Morgan had received a com
mission to visit Senator Haniia to se
cure his aid In bringing aliout an ami
rrrs t"leml Ppentl a Weary Hay.
Nothing tangible could bo learned
concerning these supposed tris. how
ever, and nil talk in relation to them
must remain merely conjecture until
the return of these nien;lcrs and their
lips are unsealed. The newspaper
men, in their endeavor to get news eon
errning the progress of the conference,
spent a weary day on the sidewalks
around the headquarters, orders hav
ing been issued that reporters should
not Im admitted to the building during
the session of the ..oard.
No Change In the Situation.
The condition of affairs: may b
nmiiied up in this paragraph: The
steel workers' strike against the t'nited
States .Steel f'oritomtioli Is still unset
tled. The f-tntiis of the contest is un
changed: the men are fighting Tor every
advantage, while the -companies in
volved are strengthening their posi
tion aa much as possible. The con
ference of the members of the Amal
gamated executive board, which was
expected to settle the trouble one way
or the other yesterday, adjourned at
fl p. in. without accomplishing its pur
pose. Opinion or Ona of the Worker.
A number of strikins steel workers
from the nttsbing mills of the Amer
ican Steel Hoop company were among
the watchers aix.ut the headquarters.
One who claiiiKtl to le among the old
est memlcrs of the Amalgamated asso
ciation, and who has passed through
no les" than four great strikes, said he
hoped the strike would not 1e settled
on the terms offered. He wanted the
IsKiie fonirbt to a finish now. He saitl
that there was no use in teniisirizing
In this matter, and if the settlement
was made now it would only mean that
It would have to le fought oil over
again at some future time.

had as a patient a young lady sixteen
years of age, who had a very bad at

she was growing worse every hour.
Her parents were sure she would die
She had become so weak that she
could not turn over in bed What to

for me. bat 1 thought of Chamber
