I*** E THE MEN CLAIM TO HAVE MADE THEIR PROMISES GOOD AS TO RESULTS. EMPLOYERS SAY NOT&ING An Almost Complete Tieup of the Three Companies in the District. But One Tin Mill and One Sheet Steel Mill Remain at WorkThe Walkout of the Stationary Firemen Throws Thousands Out of Work. Pittsburg, July 17.The second atrike day closes with the Amalga mated association in a satisfied mood and claiming to have made good every promise as to results. On the other hand, the manufacturers will not say a word concerning the strike and refuse to be quoted in any way. Repeated efforts to secure statements from offi cials have been met with the response that there was no change and nothing to be given out. The Amalgamated people say that nothing has been said to them of any plan for mediation or arbitration and they will continue to carry out their programme as orig inally announced. The closing down of the Clark mill and of the Messen sheet steel mill are looked upon as telling victories and almost *a complete tieup of the three companies in the district. But one tin mill, that at Monessen, and one sheet steel mill at Duncan ville, remain at work. The following telegram has been received: "The Wellsville rolling mill will be run and it will be run non-union. It will start in the morning. If it could not be run non-union it never would -'be run at all." This statemet was made by P. F. Smith of Pittsburg, district manager for the American Sheet Steel com pany. The announcement 'that the mill will be started non-union has given rise to no little speculation and uneasiness among the citizens. Wellsville is looked upon by both sides as an important point and de velopments are anxiously awaited by all. Conferees' Statement Disputed. According to the official statement made by the managers' conferees who met the Amalgamated association committee and failed to agree on a settlement, the managers did not re fuse to grant to the Amalgamated as sociation the right to organize their mills. According to the Amalgamated association officers all that was asked of the manufacturers was the right to organize the plants, and the reason for the strike therefore has not been niAoHy ^ifiedT President Shaffer, when ^en on this statement, said: "No matter what they now say, the fact remains that they refused the Amalgamated association the right to organize their mills." Asked if the statements on this point fiom Vice President Warner are correct, he said: "If they are and the manufacturers are willing to allow the Amalgamated association to organize the millsthen the strike is off. We have never asked the manufacturers to compel the men to join our organization. We do not wish to coerce men to join the Amal gamated association. If the manufac turers will abrogate that part of the contract with non-union men in their mills, which keeps them from joining our organization or any other, remove the restrictions that are now on those men and allow us to work unrestrict edly among them and seek to get them to come to us, we will not ask any thing further. Our demand was that they should allow us to do this. We asked them to sign the scale in order that the men might become union." ORDER PROMPTLY OBEYED. Nine Hundred Stationary Firemen Re fuse to Go to Work. Wilkesbarre, Pa July 17.The strike order of President Mullahy of the Stationary Firemen's association of Pennsylvania was promptly obeyed and 900 members of the organization in this section of the state refused ito go to work. Most of the strikers [are employed as firemen at the coal mines and their failure to report for duty caused nearly all the collieries in the northern anthracite region to suspend operations, throwing out of work, it is estimated, 30,000 men and boys. Some of the individual coal op erators conceded the demands of their employes on condition that the short hour day was not to hold if the men employed by the big companies did not get the same concessions. The big coal companies, however, refused to make any concessions. The employers contended that the demands of the firemen were unrea sonable, that they had received a 10 per cent advance at the time the wages of the miners were raised last fall and the demands now made upon the companies are equal to a 20 per cent advance. The duration of the strike will de pend upon the miners. If they sjtand fcy the striking firemen, the lockout may be a long one, but if the miners return to work as soon as the com panies fill the places of the strikers, the strike will be lost to the firemen. Despite reports to the contrary, it Is known that a difference of opinion exists between the miners and the firemen. The miners think the strike inopportune and that the firemen should have waited until April next before pressing their demands. ^SAQAIN8T PICKETING ONLY. i _____ Judge Wil Not Enjoin Either Violence Bbycotttng.^f^rf" Cinulnna ti, July 17.Judge Cl D. Clark of the United States district court, during the^ hearing of the mo tion to dissolve the temporary in junction issued against the striking machinists, indicated very plainly to [counsel for the defense what his opin ion would be on two points involved. He said that for picketing an in junction would he granted, but that acts of violence and even boycotting were not to be met by injunction. described picketing as intercepting men while going to and from the fac- tory,^ anywhereeven miles awayby one man or by more than one, an in terference with ingress and egress of workmen. But violence, he added, is not to be remedied by injunction in this court. It is found to belong to the criminal jurisdiction of the state courts. He announced that thfe de cision of the case would rest on the point whether or not it had been shown there had been picketing. FUNDS ARE SHORT. Machinists' Strike in Milwaukee Vir tually at an End. Milwaukee, July 17Unabl to hold out any longer on account of the scarcity of funds, 50 machinists vol untarily have gone back to work at the works of the Allis-Chalmers com pany, thus virtually putting an end to the strike in Milwaukee. This was practically the first break of any im portance in the ranks of the machin ists, but it is admitted it is almost hopeless to hold the men out in Mil waukee any longer. A general return to work of the men in every shop in the city is expected. The Allis com pany expects every one of its former employes will be back soon and all will be reinstated in their old places as far as possible. The end of the strike here is regarded with satisfac tion by the employers as a body, and there is no disposition to deal harshly with the men. It is said the shops which have been crippled for so long will be running full handed by the first of next week. FATAL COINCIDENTS. Elevator Boys at New York and Chi cago Instantly Killed. New York, July 17.Robert Moore, 19 years of age, was killed while at work on an elevator of the American Can company, at Whitestock, L. I. The elevatolr was a new invention and was opened at the factory ofr the first time during the day. After running a few times, it refused to work, and in trying to repair the break the boy fell to the bottom of the shaft and was killed instantly. The American Can company has a factory in Chicago and an elevator of the same kind was placed in the factory there and oper ated for the first time during the day. Almost at th same time that Moore met his death word was received from the factory in Chicago that the ele vator boy was killed there. PENSION LIST GROWING.

Washington, July 17.Reports have been received by Commissioner Evans* of the pension bureau from all the pension agents of the country showing the entire pensions business trans acted for the fiscal year ended June 30, last.

The deaths among pensioners numbered 38,082 in 1901, or 257 more than in 1900. Run Over by Fire Engine.

'*l TER ON iyiStONSWTHE LIBERA!. PARTY. ^'t I SEES NO FAVORABLE ISSUE It Is a Source of Sorrow to Him to Find a Weak Government Confront- ed by a Weaker OppositionBe. lieves That the Present Crisis May Have Unlimited Effect Upon Great Britain's Future. London, July 17.Lord Rosebery has issued a manifesto on the divi sions in the Liberal party. It is con tained in a letter to the City Liberal club, which had invited him to deliver an address. He disclaims any desire to re-enter politics, but speaks out "under the re markable charter" agreed upon by Liberal members of the house of com mons of "hearty and undisputed al legiance to the leader and complete liberty of action to dissent with regard to one vital question before the coun- try." The Liberal party can become a power, he says, when it shalL have made up its mind on the "imperial questions which are at this moment embodied in the war." After assert ing that "the whole empire has rallied to the war," he discussed the attitude of the Liberal party. "What is the attittrde of the Liberal party?" he asks. "Neutrality and an open mind? Now I contend that this is an impossible attitude and spells, impotence. No party can exist on such conditions." He declares that -the differences would not cease to operate when the war is over, "be- cause statesmen, who disassociate themselves from a nation in a great national question, such as the war in which we all strive to suffer together, disassociate themselves for much longer than they think." He considers that the severance is a "sincere fundamental and incurable Antagonism of Principle with regard to the empire at large and our consequent policy." As there is this "honest and irreconcilable differ ence of opinion on questions of the first importance," he can see no favor able issue. Lord Rosebery concludes with a gloomy touch. "It is a matter of sor row and anxiety," he says, "to see a weak government confronted by a weaker opposition at a juncture of foreign hostility and international competition which needs all the vig ilance, power and ability at our com- mand." He believes that Great Britain is at a crisis which may have unlimited ef fects upon its future. Lord Rosebery's pronunciamento is regarded by The Daily Telegraph as severing his last connection with a hopeless opposition. The Daily Chron icle says: "It is destined to have a profound effect upon the contemplated forma tion of a national Liberal party, nu merous materials for which are scat tered within each." The Daily Chronicle meaningly asks if Lord Rosebery will take his part towards realizing the desired end. The Daily News regards Lord Rose bery as "standing outside the vine yard and throwing stones at the work- ers." Going on to analyze the letter, the paper ^defines it as a "deliberate and mischievous effort to prevent re union." The Conservative papers generally commend the letter. RECEIVED AT WASHINGTON. Porto Rican Free Trade Resolution in Secretary Hay's Possession. Washington, July 17.Secretary Hay has received by mail an official report from Governor Allen of Porto Rico, enclosing the resolution adopted by the Porto Rican legislature provid ing for free trade between the United States and Porto Rico after July 25, next.

Cleveland, O., July 17.-^The official call of the "Bryan Democrats" of Ohio was issued during the day. It Is ad dressed to "the Bryan Democrats of Ohio," and" charges that the Ohio con vention repudiated the two last Demo cratic national platforms, and that the action of the convention was the result of a conspiracy "mapped out at the headquarters in New York." The address concludes as follows: "If the action of this convention stands unrebuked, then it must be un derstood that the Democratic party, as such, has repudiated the principles enunciated in the Kansas City plat form, and ratified and approved of the course pursued by the Republican party on the money question. If the Democratic party abandon the prin-' ciples laid down in the platforms of 1896 and 1900 then it may as well close its political career, for there is little else of importance to fight for." AN EYE FOR AN EYE. I ti- The Laws of the White Man and dian in Collision. Omaha, July 17.Bird Head, a Ponca Indian buck, aged 86, and his squaw, aged 81, pleaded guilty in the federal court to manslaughter, com mitted on the reservation more than a year ago, and were released with suspended sentence. Perry Laravie, also an Indian, had unintentionally slain their son Peter, and, following the tribal tradition, he handed his rifle over to old Bird Head, who shot him. Then the squaw cut him up with an axe. They had ful filled the Indian law, but collided with the white man's code. This disposi tion of t\e case was making the pun ishment fit the crime, in the view of the court. WITHOUT A PRECEDENT. Peculiar Damage Case Against the City of Decatur, Ills. Decatur, Ills., July 17.The city of Decatur has compromised the $15,000 suit of Mrs. Anna Hatfield for $7,500, making about $14,000 that will be paid because a number of boys had a pri vate telegraph line across a street. Mrs. Hatfield's son was maimed for life and James Lee's son was killed while playing in Lee's yard. A storm broke the wire and it fell partly in the yard and on a trolley wire. The courts held that the city allowed the wire, a dangerous element, to remain in the streets and was liable. The cases were of importance as being without a precedent. HARRISON'S SUCCESSOR.

DEADLOCKED FOR A MONTH Radical Difference Between Great Brit- ain and Russia Regarding Details of the Plan for Paying the Indem- nityGovernments and Not the Min- isters Are Held Responsible for the Prevailing Condition. Peking, July 17.The ministers of the powers now freely admit that the prospect for a conclusion of negotia tions is growing darker. "Phe situation is most serious as the deadlock has continued for more than a month. The meeting arranged for the day was postponed because it was apparent that the proceedings would be fruit less. It was at the meeting of July 11 that the ministers reached something in the nature of an agreement as to indemnity, but almost immediately a radical difference developed between Great Britain and Russia as to the de-. tails of the plan of payment. All the ministers were in accord with the scheme early in June, subject to the approval of their governments, but Great Britain disapproved of the ar rangement on the ground that it did not adequately protect her commercial interests. The neutral ministers assert that either Great Britain or Russia must make material concessions before an agreement is possible. Meanwhile the ministers of the powers are working upon comparatively unimportant de tails, such as improvements in navi gation, but if the financial question were settled the negotiations could be closed in a day. Li Hung Chang keeps sending strenuous requests to the min isters of the powers to present a com plete plan. He represents that China is willing to accept any reasonable terms and is chiefly anxious to know definitely what the powers require so that she may begin compliance with the terms. The ministers regard newspaper ac cusations of procrastination on their part as exceedingly unjust. The gov ernments and not the ministers are re sponsible, the ministers say for the deadlock. DROUTH NOT BROKEN YET. Rains in Kansas Have Given But Lit tle Benefit. Topeka, Kan., July 17.While rain has fallen during the past 24 hours in various parts of Kansas, the drouth is not yet broken and little benefit has been experienced by the crops. The rains have been small local affairs and the only effect has been to cool the atmosphere and freshen vegetation to a certain extent. The refreshing breeze from the South made the weather more bear able than any during the past month. Two places the state report a tem perature of 107, but the average has been about 99. Reports of blighted crops continue to come in. A hopeful tone pervades most of the reports, however, and the determination is generally expressed to make the best of the situation. GOOD CHANCE TO WIN. Lipton Has Every Confidence in the New Shamrock. London, July 17.Sir Thomas Lip ton, speaking to a representative of the Associated Press, said the results of the triaj between the two Sham rocks in the Firth of Clyde had given him every confidence in the challenger and had undoubtedly stamped the challenger as the fastest yacht this side of the water. Sir Thomas said he thought Shamrock II was able to beat Shamrock I by 8 minutes in a 30-mile course, and he therefore believed she had a good prospect of success against her American competitor. He also said the challenger had done all he had expected her to do. Sham rock II will sail for New York July 25. CLEVELAND NEGROES ANGRY. Accuse G. A. R. Committee of Drawing the Color Line. Cleveland, O., July 17.Cleveland negroes are angry over what they con sider an attempt of the citizens gen eral committee of the G. A. R. en campment to draw the color line.

Berlin, July 17.The Vossische Zeitung publishes a statement to the effect that the Spanish government meditates proposing to the powers that they guarantee the integrity of Spain on much the same way as they do that of Belgium.
