ernment was proclaimed by the shah
of Persia, that country has been in
the throes of a revolution, which has.
been general in character, and in
eluded within its scope the inhabi
tants of larger and smaller cities
The shah reluctantly proclaimed the
constitution and has cast his lot with
the reactionaries, who are opposed to
it because they hold that it is con
trary to their best -interests. The
other party, the constitutionalists, have
been fighting to maintain their rights
guaranteed to them by the constitu
tion. It is stated that during the few
years of warfare between 30.000 and
4-0,000 lives have been sacrificed.
One particularly significant dispatch
received within the last few days was
that which described the warlike prep
arations of the shah in arming the
camp which he has established with
out the confines of his capital. There
he gathered troops and a large quan
tity of munitions,' and the camp, it
was said, had become a fortress. As
his commander in chief there the sov
ereign appointed Amir Bahadorjenk,
well known for his decision and se-
; verity , of discipline.
The vital question between the
shah and his people has been the at
tempt of the latter to compel their
monarch to abide by his pledge to ob
serve the constitution, the institution
of which in this ancient, oriental king
dom, has been one of the marvels of
the 20th century. This pledge, the
people and their representative -as-sfunbly
said, has been broken In every

' Pittsburg. June ' 24. jThe Republic
Iron and Steel company has decided
to break with Its union employes, de
spite what, according to report, has
been powerful pressure on the part of
the persons conspicuous in republican
party affairs, who are anxious to have
uo labor dissensions now and who
have urged that the wage scale for
union men be signed without quibbling
for a year from July 1.
The Republic has refused 4o listen
and has served notice on its thousands
of Amalgamated Association employes
that unless they accept a cut of great
proportions said to be 33 1-3 per cent
the union will be thrown out of all
the mills beginning July 1.
Heady to Afit 2 Per Ont Inm.
The workmen, who were ready to
accept a cut of 20 per cent', have re
fused to agree to so large a cut. and
the 'announcement is made' that the
mills will close June 30, the expiration
of the scale year, and that when they
reopen the owners will deal with the
workmen as individuals, and not as
union men. '
Officers of the Amalgamated associa
tion admit that efforts to arrange a
schedule wi'-h the Republic interests
for the ensuing year have failed, and
that they cannot accept the great cut
in wages demanded. It is declared by
the workmen that the Republic sought
only to drive organized labor from the
mills entirely when the'eut was pro
posed. Not In Politic.
The stand taken by the Republic
will work great injurf to the republi
can campaign, it is thought, and one
of the high officials of the Republic in
the Pittsburg office said: "We are not
in politics, nor do we care who "is
made president; we intend to run our
business, from this time out at least."
HEAT AFFECTS DELEGATES
Attendance at Sunday School Conven

Louisville, June 24. Yesterday's
session of the international Sunday
school convention saw a perceptible
decrease in the attendance of dele
gates, many of whom, after three days
of intense heat, had departed for
their homes. The program, owing to
the long struggle Monday . over the
next meeting place, has been greatly
disarranged, and President Stiles an
nounced that a number of papers
which had a place on the program
would not be read, but .would be
printed in the record and mailed to
all members. Among the speakers
yesterday were Rev. J. A. McKamy,
