Over Seventv Cooks and Waiters
Out or the Mills.
Homestead, Ph., Aug. 11. Seventy-two
cooks and waiters came out of the Carne
gie steel works Inst evening. As they
marched down Eighth avenne the desert
ers were 'cheered by the strikers, their
wives, and children. The trouble began
in the mill yesterday morning when J. A.
Rayborn, who entered into a contract with
the company several weeks ago to furnish
meals for 0 men, became involved in a
dispute with another contractor in the
same line of business. Superintendent
Potter was called upon to act as arbitrator.
He decided against Rayborn, whereupon
the latter decided to throw up his contract.
He went to the dining hall over which he
had supervision and begun making out bis
accounts, fixing up the time of the men in
ilia employ, etc.
leather H ifh-H untied Arrest.
While thun engaged Rayborn was wait
ed upon by five members of the Carnegie
special police force under command of
Captain Newton. The lat ter ordered Ray
born to leave the place, but he refused to
comply. The officers then placed him un
der arrest, conducted him to a little blick
building on the river bank, where they
locked him up. He vra kept
a prisoner for over two hours.
In the meantime the seventy-two
waiters and cooks employed by Rayborn
learning what had taken place quit work.
Thev Hacked their valises and lien their
employer was released from the company's
nrison bis men Ieil in line
Rayborn to the office,
Marched to Strikers' Headquarters.
This was given to him mostly in bills of
large ileuominations.making it impossible
for him to pay off his men, on account of
a lack of change. Rayborn then led the
waiters down into Homestead to the
strikers' headquarter where he paid
them, aftar which they were accompanied
to the station by fully 500 men, women
and boys, who looked upon the deserters
as real flesh and blood heroes. After get
ting rid of his men Rayborn, accompanied
by Constable Stewart went to Rankin,
where he preferred charges before Squire
Glunt, ngainst Special Officers Newton,
Powers. Smith and two others for assault
and battery and false arrest. Constables
Stewart and Gingher soon had the five
specials under arrest.
Two Views oT the Incident.
Last night the strikers were Jubilant.be
ing under the impression that the depar
ture of so many cooks aud waiters will be
a serious blow to the company, but Su
perintendent Potter looks at the matter in
a different light. He says the places of
the men who left yesterday can be filled
inside of twenty-four hours, and that the
sympathetic" strike of waiters and cooks
will have no material effect or subject the
company to iucon venijuce. Nearly 100
new men, the greater part of them lieing
machinists and practical steel workers,
came to the works yesterday. Inside the
mill last nifr,ht everything seemed to be
running smoothly, and Superintendent
Potter reiterated the statement that the
work being done by the non-unionists is
perfectly satisfactory and that so far as
the firm is concerned the Jstrike is a thing
of the past.
Other Desertions Kcpnrted.
A non uuion man who left the mill last
evening said: "I do not think there are
over 650 mer. now at work for the Carnegie
Steel company." He further said that
over ,400 inen have deserted since last Sat
urdayt.iexcltisive of the cooks and waiters
who went out yesterday afternoon. At
last night's meeting of the advisory com
mute the treasurer reorted that the men
who came, from the works yesterday had
tontribated 40 to the relief fund.
