1 the Day Call Next at Milwaukee.
Jollct , Ills. , Aug. 1C. The four
lodges of the Amalgamated associa
tion employes of the Illinois Stool com
pany at the Jollct mills by a unani
mous vote decided last night to obey
the strike order of President Shaffer ,
The steel mills were closed at noon
to enable the members of the associa
tion to attend the meeting , which was
called by National Assistant Secretary

Ho was accompanied by Vice Presi

PEACEMAKER TAKES A HAND.
Efforts of B. M. Caldwell May Bear
Fruit In Settling Strike.
PIttsburg , Aug. 1C. Once inoro
there are efforts afoot to settle the
Btrlko being waged against the United
States Steel corporation by the Amal
gamated Association of Iron , Stool and
Tin Workers , but their success Is prob
lematical. Neither side will admit
that there has been a single step to
ward bringing about a rapprochement
or Jiat tVere is ary prospect < .t au- -
change ot peace proposals. B. M.
Caldwell , formerly a mill owner of
Mlnpo Junction , is known to have
conferred with the strike leaders with
a vlow to sketching a basis of settle
ment which ho plans to place before
the officials of the steel corporation.
He Is believed to be the mysterious
man who conferred with President
Shaffer for more than two hours at the
strike headquarters yesterday. Both
Bides vigorously denied that they had
either made overtures or received pro
posals , but It is known positively that
the plan Is under consideration. Mr.
Caldwell Is acting Independently and
does not represent either the manu
facturers or the men.
Meantime the contest between the
ereat Interests Is being waged with
vigor and slightly varying fortune.
The steel corporation seemed to be
eomewhat stronger at the lower Union
mill of the Carnegie company In this
city , although the strikers are still
working hard to cripple or close It.
, The corporation also added to the
force at Wellsvlllc and announced that
at last they had the plant running to
Its full capacity. It had boon antici
pated that the day would show some
move on the part of the American
Tin Plato company toward opening one
or more of Its plants with nonunion
men , hut nothing was done and there
was no attempts at extensions In other
directions. Three hundred men em
ployed at the Seamless Tube plant at
McKeesport , an auxiliary of the Na
tional Tube company , threw done their
tools and joined the strikers. It Is
Bald they quit because they would not
handle nonunion made material. Dur
ing the day the strikers kept a close
watch on the plants that are being
operated with nonunion men and also
kept alert pickets around the Carnegie
plants and the works that are com
pletely closed down. There were few
developments , and except In the In-
etanccs enumerated there have been
no changes In the general situation.
Good order was general throughout
nfl the strike districts.

I New York , Aug. 1C. The Press
cays : J. Pierpont Morgan has planned

Atlanta , Aug. 1(5. ( The tropical
storm which has boon raging along
he gulf coast for two days has com-
> lotoly Isolated the city of Mobile , Ala. ,
rom the outsldu world. It IB known
hat considerable damage has been
lone along the water front In Mobile ,
nit whether there baa been any loss
of llfo or not Is moro conjecture ,
s'othlng hud been heard from the
country south of Mobile up to the
time the last wire to Mobllo failed.
At 4:30 yesterday afternoon the West
ern Union olllce In Mobile was aban-
loned , the water at that time bolng
hreo feet deep In the operating room.
Two hours later communication was
iad for a few minutes with Mobllo.
The Associated Press operator there
tad made his way to the operating
room In a boat. Ho took up his posi
tion on top ot the switchboard , sov-
erul feet above the flooded ofllco , and
letachlng the Associated Press wire
'rom Its place In the board , sent this :
'Am on top of the switchboard here
with a lineman. The water Is over
three feet deep In this room and It Is
still rising. The wind Is blowing at
Jio rate of 50 miles nn hour and wo
ook for worse things tonight. The
justness district Is deserted "
Here the wlro failed and nothing
more could bo heard from him , al
though the most persistent efforts were
made. The water at 3 p. m. was re
ported as high as In the great flood of
1893 , although at that tlmo the wind
was not as high. From Mobile to Fort
Morgan , a distance of 15 miles , and on
both sides of the bay , summer resorts
and summer houses are located. These
were. It Is believed , In the direct path
of the storm. It Is feared there has
been loss of llfo on some of the Isl
ands In Mississippi sound located just
outside the bar below Fort Morgan.
Advices from Flomaton , Ala. , wore
to the effect that the gulf storm
struck that place at 9 o'clock on Its
flight to the north. At midnight the
storm was raging with no signs of
abatement. No damage had boon
done In the city of Flomaton up to that
hour. Flqmaton Is GO miles north of
Mobile and no trains o'h the Louisville
and Nashville have gone south of that
place since yesterday.
A report received over a railroad
wlro says that the mill of the Dixie
lumber company , two miles north of
Mobllo , was carried away by the storm
and several emplojes were killed.
STOR'M STILL CONTINUES.
Tempest is General All Along tlie
Now Orleans , Aug. 1C. The storm
which has been sweeping the gulf
coast from Pensacola and moving
west during the past two days has
prostrated telegraph and telephone
wires to such an extent that news from
the outlying sections is hard to g 't.
The greatest fears have been enter
tained for the safety of the people
living at Port Eads , which is at the
mouth of the Mississippi river , and for
the ships that started for sea just be
fore the storm began. The wires to
Port Eads have been prostrated sliu-f
Tuesday night at 8 o'clock , but tin
Picayune reached a man who left there
at 2 o'clock Wednesday. Ho was at
IJuraH , which is CO miles down the
river , and the farthest point with
which there Is wire communication at
the present tlmo. This man describes
the storm which swept that section
as a regular tidal wave , similar to the
ono which resulted In such awful loss
of life In 1893. Ho Bays all the peopio
living on the east bank of the river
have moved up to the "jump , " which
Is 15 miles from the mouth of the rlvt-r.
The house of a man named Cobden ,
half a mile above the quarantine sta
tion was swept away , and the 15 mem-
bora of the family , Including nine chil
dren , were drowned. The quarantine
buildings were badly damaged , but no
one Injured. The government boat
General Reese Is believed to have been
lost. The pile driver at Port Eads was
sunk. The tugboat Buras was driven
ashore near the lighthouse , and later
It was reported that she had sunk.
Her crew were said to have been
saved. The tugboat Velasco went
down to Pass L'Outro , which Is the
eastern mouth of the river , with two
barges. When last seen she had her
decks awash , and Is believed to have
gone down. If this boat and her
barges have been lost , 20 moro peopio
have been drowned. There are numer
ous reports of Individual casualties
along the river from Buras to the
Not a single vessel has passed up
the river slnco the storm began and
great fears are entertained for the
ones which arc expected. There Is
serious apprehension concerning the
Chenlero Camlnadn and Grand Isle
sections , on the south Louisiana coast ,
west of the Mississippi river , where
2,000 lives were lost In 1893 by the
tidal wave. Up to this writing no
word has been received from that sec
tion , which Is largely Inhabited by fish
ermen , mostly Chinese and Malaya.
