Pittsburg, July 2.?As the result of
the failure of the joint wage conference
between the manufacturers und the
Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel
and Tin-Plate Work;rs to agree upon a
scale of wnges at the Youngstown, Ohio,
conference yesterday, all the union mills
are closed to day and between 75,000 and
y?.OOO men are idle.
President Garland,of the Amalgamated
Association, returned from Youngstown
last night. He said he was not discour?
aged at the outlook, but expected] a set
tlement aftei the annual repairs at the,
mills have been completed.
Three more slit natures to the Amalga?
mated scale were received "to-day. They
are those of the Munclc Iron and Steel
Company, the Peninsular Car 'Company
and Jones & Laughlin's structural de?
Andrews. Depuy & Co., operating a
non-union ivid at McKe??'s '.Recks, "near
Pittsburg, ordered a cut in wages of from
10 to 20 per cent. The plant employs
The general suspension of work cannot
be regarded as either a strike or a lock?
out. Repairs are always made at this
season of the year and many manufac?
turers do not sign the scale until after
their plants have been overhauled. Tins
usually consumes two or three weeks.
In the meantime the. conference com?
mittees will meet again and try to settle
the differences. If the committees find
that un "agreement is impossible a bin
strike will doubtless begin.
The conference oti the *tln-plute?wage
scale will bo resumed to-morrow by the
committees of the manufacturers and'tbc
Amalgamated Association. All the tin
plate plants in the country, with the ex?
ception of the four non-union concerns,
are Idle and a number of manufacturers
are anxious to get to work. The workers
insist, that they will make no concessions,
while the manufacturers are wi'ltng to
grant at least 10 per cent, advance over
the present rates.

before the bar cou'd be 'run between

nuke his escape, the large male lion
seized him by the leg and ciushed it very
badly. Mozart was only rescued by the
prompt action of the circus employes,
who held the lion back by using pcinted

MINERS WILL STRIKE.
They Will be Galled Out All Over
Terre II,into, Ind., July 1.?Next Sun?
day, or prior to that day, circulars will
bo placed in the hands of all bituminous
miners In the United Status,calling them
out on strike. It is estimated that 250,
000 men will be involved. Pennsylvania.
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and .parts of
West Virginia and Kentucky will con?
tribute to tbe movement.
The strike is to enforca the Columbus
scale, 00 cents per ton for Pennsylvania,
(30 cents for Ohio, 00 cents for Indiana,
and 55 cents for Illinois. When the
Columbus scale was adopted 'it was not
thought advisable to attempt Its enforce?
ment. A committee was then appointed
to take in hand the matter of a strike,
and to order one as soou as such a course
seemed opportune. This committee has
decided that the time has come to act.
The strike will be general. In Braid
wood, 111., a mass meeting wns held to
day, at wtiich the miners in evjry place
in the northern district, agreed to lay
down their tools. At Streatbr 2,000
miners decided not to wait, but to strike
at once, and at Altnoua, Pa., the Gallit
/.in miners who went back to work Tues?
day, quit work again late this afternoon.

Chicago, 111..July 2.?W. D. Ryan, sec?

Uuitcd States Senator Mason, iu which
"The stand taken by you in behalf of
the patriots iu Cuba deserves the com?
mendation of all liberty-loving people,but
let me call your attention to the condi?
tion of '10 000 of your constitue-its?the
coal miners"of 1 ilinois. The insane com?
petition inaugurated by the coal opera?
tors has brought about a condition of
suffering and destitution which was
never equaled. We have been forced to
accept reductiou after reductiou until the
price now paid is so low that miners can?
not earn an average of ?? cents a day,and
mines work only half timo. Taking
an average of a dollar a day and three
days work a week, a miner earns ."$12 iv
month. With a family of live?a fair
average--thc wife has less than 15 cents
for a meal, to say nothing of clothes,
rent, etc. f doubt if any more lives have
been lost In Cuba since the insurrection
commeneed than in the mines of Illinois
during the same time, and I am certain
there are no more women and children
hungry in Cuba at pr?sent than among
the families of the miners ot Illinois. Do
something to pur. the idle miners of Illi?
nois to work at a fair rate of wages, and
I will guarantee that every miner in Illi?
nois will contribute at least one day's
wanes every month for the beuellt of ?he
down-trodden people of Cuba."

Three Democrats Kept White Pine
Off the Free List.
THE AMENDMENT WOULD HAVE
BEEN EASILY CARRIED" BUT FOR
THEIR OPPOSITION?FOUR RE?
PUBLICAN SENATORS BOLTED
THE CAUCUS AND VOTED TO
REMOVE THE DUTY?WILL SOON
BE IN CONFERENCE.
Washington, July 2.?Three Demo?
cratic Senators?Martin, of Virginia; Ba?
con, of Georgia, and [McEnery, of Louis
iana?prevented the placing of white pine
lumber on tho free list by their votes in
the Senate this alternoon. The same
three voted against a reduction of the
duty on Mils lumber from $2 to $1 per
thousand feet, but there were enough Re?
publican votes cn?t in favor of the propo?
sition to secure its adoption.
The two votes taKeu on the amend?
ment to the whue pine paragraph were
the mcst noteworthy of the (lay and
among the most .remarkable of the ses?
sion. Upen the propositio" to put white
pine upon the free list four Republicans
?Messrs Carter, Baker, Quay and Hans
brough?broke away from the caucus
agreement and voted with the.Demo?
crats. Had Senator Martin alone voted
with his party, the proposition would
have carried. The existence of a few
white pine trees in Virginia and Georgia
account for the action of Senators Martin
and Bacon. Senator McEnery voted
with the Republicans simply as a protec?
Every ctTort will be made by the Re?
publican leaders to secure a vote upon
tho bill Saturday afternoon, but they
have no means of telling bow much dls- I
mission will be "occasional by the pro- j
poseil anti-trust amendment. They f.re
satisfied, however, that if a [vote is not
secured Saturday oue will be taken not
later than the middle of next week.
When the tari.billff reaches the House,
after it has passed the Senate, it .is not.
probable there will be any attempt to op?
pose the motion, which will be made
either directly by Chairman Dingley of
by the operation of a special order, to
disagree to the Senate amendments anil
send the bill to conference. The Repub
lienn leaders do not think there '.is au\
necessity for debate until the bill Is re?
ported back by the conferees, aud the
Democrats are inclined to the same opin?
ion. Mr. Bailey, tho leader of the minor?
ity, said to-day that he would not oppose
a motion to get tho bill into conference,
provided the Republicans would agree to
a reasonable time for debate when the bill
1 was reported back to tho House. He
thought three or four days for discussion
at that time would be sufficient.
The number of conferees to be appointed
on behalf of the House has uot yet been
decided, nor the political division, but
the conferees,as is usual, will be the rank?
ing members of the committee from each
side. It is probable there will be seven
conferees. The political .division may be
five and two or four and three. The Re?
publican members of the committee, in
their ranking order, are Dingley, chair?
man; Payne, Dalze.l, 1 Hopkins, Gros
venor, Kusssll, Dolliver. Steele, Johnson,
Evans and Tawney: the .Democrats,
Bailey, McMllHn, Wheolor. McLuurin,
liooertson and Swauson.
The estimate of the time the. bill will
1 be in confeience ranges from two to ten
lays,but the best opinion is that tho con
j ferees will repDrt the bill back a week
from next Monday, If it comes over from
i the Sonate on the latter day.
