WHAT THE MACHINISTS'
HARD BLOW FOR THE WORKERS
Foundry Will Not Be Restored to Its
Former Proportions—Gave Away Its
Contracts, and Will Hereafter Be
Only a Repair Shop—No Place for
liore Men to Work.
(Special to Inter Mountafn.)
Anaconda May 3.—The payroll at the
foundry department of the A. C. M. Co.
amounted to $10,500 during the month
of April. During January it was nearly
four times that amount or something
Tlv.se figures show what the late
strike- inaugurated i>y the machinists
and mo ,lets has done. On account of
the troubles which have existed for a
Idttie" more than two months, according
to Superintendent Hickey, about $60,000
in wages has not circulated among the
laboring men of this city, which other
wise would have done.' Sixty thousand
dollars is a lot of money, yet that rep
resents what the foundry employes have
lost by going on a strike.
A reporter of the Inter Mountain vis
ited the foundry this morning, and it
was found that every department was in
operation, but on a much smaller scale
No Increase for tlie Present.
Superintendent Hickey was asked if he
Intended to increase the force, and he
replied: "No, not for the present, at
least, and in all Likelihood not for some
little time to come. The fact of the
matter is, I have no use for any more
men, and if I were to put on a half
dozen additional men there would be
nothing for them to do. The foundry
ihas been reduced to just an ordinary
repair shop, and it will remain so in
definitely, consequently we have stopped
looking for any big contracts for heavy
work and will not try to for sometime
to come, if at all.
"Some of the big jobs we had on hand
Jtave been contracted for in the east,
so we will run along in a quiet, unas
suming manner, conducting an ordinary
Advance if They Had Stayed In.
Mr. Ilickey again declared that had
the men who walked out remained at
their posts they would have received the
present schedule of pay on the first day
of May. Tùe company could not have
done otherwise very well after granting
an eight-hour day in the smelters at
the «aine rate of pay. It would have
been inconsistent to have done anything

Is just what the men have contended
for, yet the strike leaders have not de
clared the trouble over or designated a
willingness to do so' unless the union is
A good many of the men ihave returned
to work, however, regardless of the
union, but since doing so have been ex
pelled from the organization. There are
•some of the cooler heads who have never
hesitated to say that the strike was
ill-advised from the very start, but were
outnumbered when the matter was dis
cussed in the meetings.
The least that can he said is that the
whole trouble was unfortunate, coming
up, as ilt did, at a time when the out
look for prosperous times was never
brighter. It caused business men to be
extremely cautious and citizens to be
come skeptical as to the future.
CHILDREN NEEDED A SCHOOL
Sectional District at Mill Creek An -
nexed ta the Anaconda
(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Anaconda, May 3.—Miss May Mc
Laughlin, county superintendent of
schools, returned last night from a brief
visit to some of her country charges.
Some lime ago, the residents of upper
Mill ('reek, who are included in district
24. petitioned the county superintendent
to be attached to the Anaconda school
district, pointing out that in that locality
there are 21 children without school
facilities. A part were in the Willow
Creek district and the balance in the
Anaconda district, but not a sufficient
number in either to establish a school.
The matter was thoughly discussed,
and Miss McLaughlin decided to grant
their petition. The change gives to the
Anaconda district four sections of land,
and takes away one and one-half sectioA.
A half section is also cut off from the
Willow Glen district.
Lives and Property Menaced
Thoughtless Boys Rolling Boul
deri3 Down the Hill.
(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Anaconda, May 3.—There is going to be
some trouble out in the south part of
town. That is, if the small boys do not
stop rolling stones down the hill frog»
the trench which was dug last wlntel
for the pipe line which will convey water
to the Washoe Smelting works.
During the warm days recently a
crowd of small hoys have congregate 1
along the trench almost daily and found
pastime in rolling huge rocks down the
hillside. Scattered all along the foot of
the mountain are residences, ajid the
youthful capers have caused considerable
alarm among the citizens who occupy
these houses. They are living in perfect
terror lest some of these days their
homes will be punctured by some of
these tumbling boulders.
One house had a close call last Sunday
and had it not been for a slight elevat
tion in the contour of the mountain side
one of these places would have been
struck; and as it was'the building was
only missed by about two or three feet.
The boulder weighed nearly 100 pounds
and it came down from its former rest
ing place at a terific rate of speed, hav
ing gained its velocity while covering
a distance of about 40 yards. Another
time some small children while out play
ing came near being hurt or killed by
one of these rolling stones which fur
nished so much amusement to the
youngsters upon the banks of the trench.
Mr. E. E. Lyman, who occupies the
last house at the head of Oak street
found a Iboulder whizzing past his place,
and it came mighty near crashing into
his Belgian hare rabbitry. He decided
at once to stop such proceedings, and
set out after the young miscreants, but
they made good their escape before he
could reach the point where they were
so busily engaged.
The chief of police was appealed to
and also the officials of Sheriff Con
ley's office ahs promised to take
a hand in the matter and will put a
stop to such depredations in the future
and will arrest the first lad who con
tinues to perpetrate such sport upon the
peaceful citizens of the south side.

features and Justice Quane found it nec
essary to order the room cleared.
