God i per s Sure Men
Will Win Strike
Expresses a Personal He"
gard for Judge Gary,
hut Attacks Hin Ideas
Success for the striking steel work
? ?i-i is inevitable, in the opinion of Sam?
uel Gompers, president of the Ameri?
can Federation of Labor.
Mr. Gompers, in an interview yester?
day, described as "inspired and untrust
worthy" reports from Pittsburgh and
other centres that the strikers' cause
was waning, He asserted that the
?trikers will come- out victorious "not
aloe?' because of the false position of
the steel corporations, hut also because
public sentiment since the war has em?
phatically given to workers the right
of coll? cl i\ e bargaining.'
"No?clique of men, such as are rep?
resented by Judge Gary, can rob tin
workers of the benefits of the new or?
der of things, and no propaganda
falsely charging radicalism or alienism
can bring back the old order," declared
Mr. Gompers. "Judge Gary, for whom
i have much personal regard, repre?
sents a time when ?. corporation re?
garded itself as a trustee of property
and its employes as its warda. That
i ?me has gone by."
Mr. Gompers talke?! while he was
packing his grin in a room at the
ilotol Continental. He left last night
for Washington. He said important
developments there might be looked for
this week. The strike may lc- dis?
cussed at President Wilson's confer?
ence with employes and empiovers on
October 0, he said.
"It is unthinkable that this strike
will be lost," said Mr. Gomper3. "It ia
hound to win, because the men are in
hi right. They are striking for better
living conditions. Throughout the
world tho mind of the worker is
awakening to his right to enjoy fair
play. He realies thai it is this for
which he made sacrifices during the
dark daaa of the war. Any lowering ol
labor s fa n.l ard s or wages now would
bo a calamity. It would bring about
.. ci sis. With lower wage3 consump?
tion would decrease, and with less
consumption there would necessarily
have to be curtailment of production.
Reversely, a recognition of the prin?
ciple (?!' fair play on tho part of em?
ployers will incuease our prosperity.
"Now, did the steel workers receive
fair play when they went to Judge
Gary and asked fur consideration ?
They did not. They were refused a
conference. Judge Gary held that the
lenders who called on him did rot
represent a majority of the workers
in the steel plants. How did Judge
Gary know? If he had conferred with
the men he might have been in a posi?
tion to know. The fact is that many
of the steel workers had been sub
orned by the corporation's system of
selling stock and through other in?
fluences, Vet more than 300.(100 of
them are out on strike in spite of
Judge Gary's contention that they do
not belong to the union. With 300,000
men on strike you cannot take the
position that they have no griovances
to consider. No, the attitude of Judge
Gary and his associates is untenable.
"Talk that the strike ha? ulterior
motives?that it is backed by men ob
sessed with revolutionary ideas?is
nonesense. It is a deak defence. Here
we have the attitude of the oldtime
employer, that he is the guardian of
his workers, the trustee of property,
and must exercise a restraining in?
fluence over those who agitate for a
"In support oi the contention that
the strike was fomented by agitators,
. ?t has been pointed out that William
Z. Foster, secretary of the National
Committee for Organizing Iron and
Steel Workers, once advocated syndi?
calism, and that John Fitzpatrick,
chairman of the committee, was an ex?
tremist. These men long ago have re?
nounced those preachings. Besides, if
they still believed in them to-day, you

Pittsburgh Strike Zone
Ruled by Sunday Calm
Steel Workers Hold Meetings, but Order Is
Maintained; Leader Fitzpatrick Circulates Letter
From Judge .Calling Foster CwModerate"
By Theodore M. Knappen
PITTSBURGH, ?Sept. 28.- The Sun-1
day calm of a placid, sunny autumn j
day lay upon tho hills and valleys of'
the Innd of coal and iron to-day and
communicated itBclf to the men of the
furnaces and forges. it was n day '
when the joy of existence overcame
the trials of life and the strikers took
delight in their leisure, rather than in
the trouble of their struggle. They
strolled the streets, motored, played
football and even golf, went, to church,
romped with the babies, visited over1
the back fences and across the front
porches, attended orderly meetings in
halls and generally comported them?
selves like men who had little to worry
about. Hero and there groups gath- j
ercd to discuss tho handbills from j
headquarters, urging them to stand !
firm nd win the strike.
Eve. :hu mills and furnaces showed!
the Sunday influence, though clouds of j
smoke all up and down the sooty val- '
leys that lit' between the fair, rolling
plateaus, as bucolic as the valleys are ?
civic, were as signals of the struggle |
that is to be resumed when the em- |
ployers will seek to take the offensive
all along the linn to-morrow.
Clairton Meeting Orderly
It Is one of the briefest aspects of
this Intense industrial district that the
topography of the country confines the
mills and tho mill towns to the bot?
toms of the narrow valleys, so that at
no place outside tho city of Pittsburgh
itself is tho open country of farm and
forest more than a mile or so from the
most complete mutilation of natural
beauty that man is able to make. Agri?
culture and manufacture, rural leisure
and urban activity are side by side
and the most primitive and the most
complex of man's activities confront
each other in startling contrast.
Thus it happened that the strikers
of the Clairton mills, having no hall
at hand, mot this afternoon in halls
in a rural village in a tributary valley
two or three miles back in the hills.
While a squad of state police guarded
against possible disorder, the strikers
listened in the best of good humor to
speakers who nssured them that the
great stee! .struggle was going their
way and warned them to observe the
Principle of Struggle Stressed
The speeches here, as well as those
delivered at tho many city meetings,
were remarkable for the fact that
there was practically no reference to
the wrongs of the mill workers, which
are so much dwelt on for outside con?
sumption. It takes a very convincing
speaker to convince well-clothed men.
Wearing $15 shoes, $10 silk shirts and
$7 hats, with brown automobiles wait?
ing without, that they aro starving, or
that their lusty chujdren are waning
The speakers not being equal to that
task, dwelt, on tho stiike as one for
a great principle?tho principle of
recognition of labor by capital. The.
steel companies were represented as
autocratically seeking to deprive their
men of the right to organize and deal
with their employers through their
chosen representatives. Beshtes deal?
ing with the issues of tin* strike the
speakers gave the men the facts of the
strikt from their side, assuring them
that they could place no confidence in
the newspaper reports of the course
of tho strike.
Financial Situation Explained
"They tell you." said one of tin
speakers, "that thc Edgar Thompson
mills at Braddock are running full.
N'ow, the fact is that there are just
twenty-four men working in this plant,
or rather there were twenty-four, for

CHICAGO, Sept. 28.?The big test in
the steel strike in the Chicago district
comes to-morrow morning. Some plants
will try to reopen. Those running with
skeleton crews will try to operate at or
near capacity. Worker? will be called
back to their jobs.
Strika pickets have been ordered to
redouble^ their vigilance. Pay day is
over. No man going into the plant
now can say he is going to draw his
money. The pickets are ordered to I
stop every man and try to dissuade
him from going to work.
Mayors and police in every town and
city in the district have promised to
protect any man who wants to return
to work. They will undertal ? to pre?

"My acquaintance with Mr. Foster
began in February, 1918, with the hear?

he seemed to act as an adviser to the
representatives of tie employes and
was apparently relied on for the pro?

references,as they were wanted in the

many questions arose both as to in?

which would indicate that he still har?

.Mill Owners Optimistic
At the end of Sunday's rest, which
gave the strike leaders an Opportunity
to try to get a fresh grip on theirr Col
'owers, the steel company officials were
gratified to receive reports from most

reporting than usual and that else?
