1 BOTH SIDES MAKING GAINS.
Painter Mill Starts Up , but Tube
Works Are Finally Closed.
Plttsburg , Aug. 15. There were
victories on both sides of tbo great
etool strike yesterday , but they furnish
no direct line on the ultimate result of
the conlllct. The strikers succeeded
In finally forcing tbo National Tube
works at McKeesport , probably tlio
largest Individual plant in tbo United
States Steel corporation , to close
down. On the other hand , the steel
corporation reopened tbo big Painter
mill In this city and also resumed oper-
-ntlons with nonunion men at the Crescent -
-cent plant of the American Tin Plato
company at Cleveland. Two mills
were run at the Painter plant , although
one of them broke down during the
tiny , and half tbo mills In tbo Crescent
plant were moving. The forces nt
both the plants named are to bo In
creased and the managers claim they
will soon have them working In full.
There was a great labor demonstra
tion nt Wheeling yesterday and Prcsl-
lent Shaffer made a stirring appeal
to his followers to fight on.
There were few other developments
of Importance during the day. Local
ly the strike seems to drag and Inter
est to flag. Great numbers of the strik
ers have gone away , cither for recrea
tion or to work , and there has been
scarcely any excitement , much less dis
order. McKeesport nnd Wheeling are
Btlrrcd up periodically , but there has
been no violence at cither place. Ru
mor again settled the strike nnd lent
n hand to restart the stilled mills of
commerce. It was related that Presi
dent Shaffer had acknowledged that
ho could not win , that the steel cor
poration feared that Us rivals would
jiroflt by an extended strike and that
they wcro going to settle. No shadow
of confirmation of the story was pos
sible. The general situation is thus
briefly summarized :
The spread of the strike nt Me-
Keesport and Wheeling has brought
the number of men who answered the
final strike order to something over
20,000 nnd Increased the total number
of men rendered Idle by the three or
ders to about C5.000.
The strikers are fully In control nt
McKeesport , Wheeling , Newcastle ,
Uellalre , Mlngo Junction , nnd show
eome strength here. The manufac
turers hold South Chicago , Bayvlew ,
Jollet , Youngstown , Columbus , the KIs-
hlinlnetns valley , the tin plant at
Mpnessen and the Carneglo group.
Of the last named property some doubt
Is expressed as to the lower Union
mill In Plttsburg. Some men have
left their places there and the strikers
boast that they will close It down.
Both sides express their satisfaction
jdth the progress or the strike.
