Steel Planta Well Prepared It i? stated that ample supplies of arms have been laid in for the depu'y sheriffs and special policemen. All dis? play and sa!? <>f firearms has been forbidden.

The strike is set for midnight Sun- i ?lay, but it has really betrun already. The great majority of the steel work? ers in this district went to work to? day, to-morrow being Sunday, for the . last trr-H" before the contest stay*?;j i?eports cam? in ail day to-day of weal] strikes, lockouts, shutdowns or what? ever name might be given to suspen? sion of usual manufacturing activities. The plants of the Allegheny Steel j and the West Penn companies were i.hut down tiiis morning ?<. give the. men a chance to voto on the question of "slicking" or striking. In the sheet mill of the Allegheny ?ompanj the '?ote stood 610 in favor of "sticking" . ?gainst 31 for striking. American Element Loyal The employes in that mill arc almost entirely American, using the term in the broad sense of one who speaks English and observes American cus? toms and standards of living. In three other departments, where the men are overwhelmingly foreign in immediate origin, the vote was about as strong tor striking. Speaking of nationality in its rela ? to*i to the strike, it is generally ob scrvi?d that most of the Americans or Americanized foreigners have no sym? pathy with either tht purpose or the methods of il.'.' organizers of the im? pending walk-out. It is also observed that, ?>f the foreigners, the Poles and Italians are inclined as a rule to stand with the Americans. The line up is thus roughly comparable to that in the great war, most of tin? races of Austro Hunirary being represented among the would-be strikers. Kays Issue la Patriotism At the West Penn Works, president 6. M. Hazlett in addressing the men, prior to taking the vote, did not hesi? tate to declare that the strike would ?e a clearly defined test of patriotism .and that no loyal American would join **. The secret vote at this plant was ?-?ported to be stronglj in favor of V"> Walk Comfortably Men just out of the Service ant keen judges of footwear.

Avoid Colds, Sora-Throat r.nd INFLUENZA remaining at work. Six hundred of the men signed an agreement binding them? selves to stand by the company. On the other hand, word came from the Carnegie Company works at Bcll aire, Ohio, that only live men out of a thousand voted to continue at work. From Wheeling came the report that the officials of the Wheeling Iron and Steel Company had made :, futile ef? fort to come to an agreement with the unions. Everywhere employer.- wore striving to get in touch with their m?>ti through speeches, notices and petitions. lind 79 Per Cent Loyal '1'he i'na! result of the voting at the Allegheny Company's mills showed Til per cent of the total in favor of stay? ing at work. Anticipating the strike, the Bellaire plant at Steubenville, Ohio, shut down this evening, putting -1,600 men out of work. .Many plants are meeting the promised trouble in this way, but most of thorn are going on the as? sumption that the men will report !'?>r work Monday morning,? preferring to await the verdict of the facts as to the effects of the strike. Regret was often expressed that th? situation had boon so long viewed with indifference by the employers, while the men wore being stirred up at meetings night after night and buttonholed bj organizers by duy. Generally speaking the propaganda for the strike among ; jjfreot mass of unorganized men hai 'teen allowed to proceed without offsei or contradiction. While the campaigi of disaffection was being vigorously pushed there was no counter offensive The first fight of the strike occurre? ?it the plant of the National Tube Com pany, near Wheeling, W. Va., yesferday when the company tried to poll the met for and against the strike. No seriou injury resulted, but the row brough out the first inflammatory statement from a labor leader. Want Workers Pro|?pcted At Braddock the citizens called for the state poiice as a protective meaa ' ure to the thousands of men there ' who purpos?? to go to work Monday. Officials of ?he steel companies re | ported that many of the loyal men are ? receiving warning letters threatening! dire things if they report for workj | Monday. Secretary William Z. Foster, of the | ; committee of twenty-four in charge of I organizing the whole steel industry,! \ which has its general headquarters I ? here, in a statement to-day deprecated : assertions that the coming ?strike is j crystallizing along lines of Americans : and foreigners. He declared that any uno who thought that a numerous body of the English-speaking steel workers was not identified with the ; strike movement would he grossly de? ceived. He also insisted that a large i proportion of the returned soldiers in ' the ranks of the workers are associated i with the organization. | "The strike order stands?," he said, "and I know of nothing that, can in? terfere with it. We have huil no tele? gram from Samuel GomperB, and we do not expect an answer to our letter I to rPcsidcnt Wilson for a week yet. Dur organization is growing by leaps1 ' and bounds as the hour approaches. Not to Conserve Property "No mon will be permitted to stay j in the shops in order to terminate processes, and thus avoid incidental physical injury to plants or property i The employers have had twelve days j in which to get their plants ready for ; this strike. If they are now caught unprepared it is their conc?n and j their fault. "The spirit of the men is wonder? ful. In spite of the most un-American persecution and repression, in spite of arrests, discharges and forbidden '. meetings, in spite of threats and even | of violence, the workers have stood firm and exercised their rights to or- ' ganizc, and now they are going into | the strike in the same strong spirit. ' We shall exercise every precaution to maintain order, "Our strength will be demonstrated Monday, and by the middle of next , week we shall be able to provide sonic- ! interesting statistics of the results of the strike in all sections. 1 never saw . u strike in which the men responded t,) promptly to suggestions ;fs in this. That is because the movement was al? mo.-: spontaneous. No complex or ?lab?rate organization is required un? der such circumstances." Industry to Ik? Crippled After talking with men and leaders on both sides, of the coming struggle and weighing carefully all the news 'developments of to-day and other per? tinent facts, my conclusion is that un? less some bolt from the blue post? pones the strike the Pittsburgh district certainly, and probably th<- stool in? dustry as a whole, will find when the reports come in Monday that it is confronted by a far reaching and crip? pling strike. In some plans the walkout will he ?m-;.< tically tola!, either from will or ? from fear, but a few key men out in any one of a dozen trades will tempo? rarily paralyze a mill, and there will be many such cases. Chicago Steel Milk Plan to Fight Strike \\ ill Try In Keep Plants Run? ning ant! Will Pay Their Loyal Employes. A n y ir a y CHICAGO, Sept, 20.?With the na i tion-widc strike of steel workers set I for Monday, officials of the steel com ! panics in the Chicago district wore completing plans to-night to combat the strike, while union loaders renewed their pledge that the strikers would in ? resort to violence. Conflicting reports were in circula . tion regarding the operation of the ! plants Monday. Officials of the steel companies were reticent regarding i their plans but it was reported they were prepared to open the plants if en? ugh loyal employes responded to the call already sent, out. Other reports were to the effect that the plants were ; prepared to shut down. .Employes who , reporl for work Monday will be kept on the payroll regardless of whether | the plan!* close, it was said. i The Wisconsin Stool Company plant in South Chicago, an Independent con- i cern employing 2,300 rnenj was reported to have drawn its fires to-day. Officials of the company said: "We have closed down for repairs." Union workers de? clared that the shut down of the plant Wat* really the beginning of the strike. Chief of Police Gnrritv visited the threatened district in/ South Chicago to make finul plans of the disposition of police reserves which will be sent out Monday. Twenty-five union organizers have received instructions from John II. De Voting, assistant secretary of the Chi? cago district, on how to handle the strike, and they have taken tu> their tasks in Gary, Hammond, Souni Chi? cago, Milwaukee, Wnukegnn. Indiana Harbor and other steel towns involved. llend.s of stool companies stand by their assertion that not more than 1!? per cent of the workers will strik??. while union officials declare the tie-up will be complete. At Gary there are approximately 19,600 employes and in the South Chi? cago mills 1(1,150.

All the mills are scheduled for operation? at prac? tically ful! capacity. No figures can be obtained as to ihe number of men who will strike on Mon? day.

Industrial Truce Urged by Palmer Attorney General Declares 6 Months' Armistice IS c& essary to Solve Problems FREEPORT, Penn., Sept. 20.?An absolute industrial armistice for six j months was urged by Attorney General 1 Palmer hero to-day to merit the solu | tinn of eijonomic problems arising out of the changes wrought by war. Such a period of freedom from un? rest,, ho declared, would result soon in increased production, whioh would bring about an era of "easier living and better times" for all. On the other hand, the Attorney General warned, selfish demands by any one class could not stimulate the national pro perity <?r permanently benefit even those ob taining such demanda by force. lie strongly discountenanced strikes. The campaign to reduce the cost of living, which he is directing, evidentlj ?vas foremost in the Attorney General'a mind in his speech, delivered a: ;: te. union of the 78th Regiment of Penn? sylvania volunteers, which also was a homecoming celebration for men who served in the world war. He said th;;? although many problems besot men's minds in these days of reconstruction, there, was none which could not be worked out "in the general irreres ' it: a government where the people were ?.lu- i/iiiy rulers. "Bu*, unies.) v." shall bo satisfied with that which is for the general in? terest," he continued, "and do not in? sist upon that which is in our own par? ticular interest there will be trouble and delay in the settlement.
