The national lodge of the Amalgamat
ed Association of Iron and Steel workers
has issued a circular to the American
public relating to the recent troubles at
the Carnegie iron works at Homestead, in
which the troubles are reviewed, and in
which the facts are stated to be as fol
lows: So many erroneous and false state
ments have been published as to the
cause for which the men are so nobly
contending, their conduct duriog the
struggle, the present situation, and tbeir
prospects of victory that we feel called
upon to issue this statement to the Amer
It is not true that the men are receiv
ing the high wages generally supposed,
nor do a large number own their homes.
We have made a careful investigation,
and find that just before the lockout
there were 3.431 employed in the mills;
of this number there were 13 whose
wages averaged about $7. SO per day ;
46 averaged between $5 and $7 per day ;
54 averaged from 94 to $5 per day; 1,
677 averaged from f 1 68 to $3 50 per
day. and 1.631 received 14 cents per hour
or less. And further, we find 8 to 10
per cent own their homes, and about 15
per cent mo.e have their homes under
mortgage; the remainder pay rent, and a
number of these have been evicted by the
It is not that the men are only defend
ing the wages of the higher-priced work
men. It is in defense of the 14 cents per
hour men as much as any other that the
Homestead workmen are making their
gallant fight. Notwithstanding the mili
tary forces of the state of Pennsylvania
have been under arms at Homestead for
nearly five weeks and the entire country
had been ransacked to find beings so low
as to hire themselves to the company,
there are less than 600 persons in the
mills, and less than a dozen skilled work
men who can perform thd work required.
The situation is such, we coufldently as
sert, that at no time duiing the struggle
were the prospects of victory as bright ss
they are now.
What the. men in this contest need is
your substantial support as well as your
sympathy. The poorer paid men in
Homestead and other Carneeie mills
where the men are now out to help tbeir
brothers at Homestead are the ones who
need your immediate help, and money is
required to maintain their manhood,
honor and interests. Every worker and
liberty-loving citizen should contribute to
the financial support of the brave men
who today occupy the position of the ad
vance guard of the labor movement of
America. The struggle at Homestead
represents the issues between freedom
and slavery, progress and reaction, and
must be maintained until the workmen
have some fair measure or recognition
from the Carnegies.

gamated association, will be thanktul for
