OPERATIVES ON STRIKE AT THE BR060N MILLS FOLLOWING NOTICE POST ED BY MANAGEMENT * ON MONDAY NO STATEMENT For the Press From the Manage ment and Operatives Have Not Much to Say. Yesterday morning the operatives at the Brogon mill failed to go to work at the usual hour and all of the machinery in the mill was idle all day yesterday. Monday afternoon thc management of the mill posted a notice reading as follows on the premises. "Notice ls hereby given that the Brogon mills will shut down for an indefinite period for the purpose of curtailment beginning on Monday. September 27. 1915. Signed. "Jas P. Gossett, "President and Treasurer." "C. W. Causey, "Superintendent." Yesterday afternoon the manage ment of the mill stated to a reporter of Tue Intelligencer that for the pres ent they had no stntement to give to tho press except that the above notice had been posted. Sometime during .Monday night it is supposed that the operatives held a meeting and dismissed the advisabili ty of going on a strike. Yesterday morning the operatives failed to go to work and when the su perintendent of the mill appeared he found every door leading to the mill guarded. At first the guards tried to prevent his entrance but after talk ing with them for awhile his argu ment prevailed and he entered the mill. Later one of the employees In the mill office came to go to work but he was refused entrance. He went around to all of tho doors but failed to be admitted to the Interior. He then went on un to the company's store where he remained until Sheriff Ashley appeared. He asked them not to attempt any violence and that they allow those wishing to go into the mill alone. This was done .and everything was quiet yesterday. Some of the help state the trouble has grown out of tho discharge of some of the employees. About three weeks ago, lt is stated, an employee was discharged because he advocated another employee joining the labor union. Later a committee of three waited on one of the overseers and asked that this man be reinstated. Later, lt is stated, the members of Ulis committee were discharged for interfering with the management of the mill. Later a committee called on the superintendent and anked that tho men be re-instated. Yesterday the help stated that a lady representative of the American Federation of Labor had come from New Yo.-k to investi gate the discharge of the men. The help also declared that by striking they wore doing what they consid ered right and were only trying to get what they thought just and rea sonable. The Brogon mill carries appro ximately 575 on their pay rolls and about 2,200 aro affected by the strike. It is supposed (that the Brogon mill, like many other mills in the United States which tnanafuctun colored goods, ls short of dyestuffs and Intended a close down for awhile In order to make the dye last over a longer period. Many other mills in this country aro doing this althone they bave a limited supply of dye stuffs on hsnd.
