'Admittedly tho rnnksoftho strikers

Tho highly paid skilled men aro for

Foster Belittles His OJd Syndicalism

piTTSBURG,. Sept. 21. When asked this morning: about; tho Red
pamphlet on "Syndicalism and Sabotage" attributed to him and
quotod in editorials in THE SUN of Saturday and Sunday, William Z.
Foster, secretary and moving spirit of tho steel strike hero, said ho
believed the document to bo a forgery.
Later upon seeing the quotations in THE SUNhe refused out
right to repudiate the pamphlot.
"It's old stuff," said ho; "it has whiskers on it I haven't seen
it for ten years. Wo know who's now Bonding it around, however.
They'vo dug it up and reprinted it to discredit tho men. In a day or
two I'll have ready for you a new pamphlet But you won't be fair.
You won'J print that, becauso it might bo creditable."
Despite tho radicalism in the pamphlot which heart his name
there is no record here that Foster has ever voiced these sentiments in
tho present strike. Ho spent the better part of half an hour's speech
to-night warning tho men at a big Pittsburg meeting to avoid violence.

Bworn in as special deputies. This
measure was taken, according to an
official of one of the most Important
companies, purely as a measure Of pro
tection for the men themselves and for
the plants. It Is taken in accord with
the declared policy of fighting, out ths
strike on the lines as they aro drawn
on the ground.
In addition to these men the com
panies have thousands of their own spe
cial officers regularly on duty at thu
plants. Every community has Increased
its police force in every possible way.
Thesa Increases and additions of hun
dreds of special officers are for tho
most part in the hands of the local
chambers of commerce.
Despite tho protestations on both sides
violence is an ever present possibility.
Tho companies and the local officials
for the most part friendly to the com
panies, insist that they are but taking
reasonable precautions. Te strike
leaders assert that all this show of
force only Incites to violence.
If the occurrences of to-day are any
criterion tho strikers seem to be Justi
fied in their contentions. Certainly the
violence occurred only where the local
authorities denied the rlgnt of peace
able assemblage on the ground that no
assemblage could be peaceable In these
times, and where they broke up the
meetings by their own show of force.
Whero tho meetings were permitted they
wero admirably conducted.
Point Used by Strikers.
This denial of the right of assemblage
Is proving one of the most valuable
cards in tho hands of the strike leaders.
Their wrath centres on Sheriff Haddock
of Allegheny county and on JIayor Lysle
of McKeesport. Tho Sheriff and the
Mavor have Droclalmed that no meet
ings can be held within their Jurisdic
tion.
"They say these boys fought for
democracy," sneered Foster, the leader
of the strikers.
"Upon what grounds have you for.
bidden thesa meetings?" tho reporter for
The Sum asked Mayor Lyslo this after
noon.
"On the grounds that no meetings
can be held without a permit," he re
plied, "and we are not giving any per
mits. I'm determined that law and
order Bhall be maintained."
The Mayor had boarded up all the halls
In his' town early, last night. At the
time scheduled for the meeting this nf
tetnoon 3.000 strikers gathered, at the
edge of the city In an open field. The
chief of police, with a big force of spe
cial officers, uniformed nntl ununlformea.
descended upon the meeting.
The crowd moved acroei the town line
into the borough of Qlassport. The
Glaesport authorities refused to tolerate
the move and started to chase tho meet-
,lpg back into McKeesport. The, JaJtter

ers and the meeting broke up. A State
trooper and a McKesport policeman
.each made an arrest.
At Clalrton .more of a struggle oc
curred. When the police rode up they
were greeted with a shower of stones.
Shots were also fired. It Is not clear by
whom.- It was there that tho largest
number of arrests were made.
A big meeting was held to-night on the
South Side In Pittsburg without inter
ference from tho police.
Foster nnd Democracy.
Foster told of the arrests this after
noon, the fact that tho men were being
.held without ball and Incommunicado,
and cried:
"If that's democracy, I want none
of Itl"
The situation, as well as it can ba
stated Impartially, is: Both sides are
, making extravagant assertions. Both
aro waving the American flag; hard.
Each is accusing the other of trickery
and worio.
Steel officials, for Instance, charge
that the whole movement Is Bolshevism.
They say that all ot the malcontents
are tho non-English speaking employees.
Tho strikers refute this with a long list
of American names. The strike litera
ture and announcements, nevertheless.
are printed In every dialect ot southern
and eastern Europe.
Mayor Lyle of McKeesport says scorn
fully that not more than twenty Ameri
cans were In the whole meeting that
he broke up this afternoon. Even ad
mitting that their adherents come largely
from tho foreign element the strike
leaders protest the patriotism of these
men.
Thoy bought Liberty bonds up toMhe
hilt," said Foster this afternoon. "They
stuck through this war like any sol
diers. They were fed up on the doc
trine that they were helping, the fight
for democracy. Now they want to get
some of that dtmocracy.
All this district is In the grip or the
steel corporations. They own every
thing officials, papers, schools, yes,
even some of the churches.
Our men resent bitterly the charge
that they live like hogs because they
want to, that they are saving money
to go to the old country. It's the same
charge that was made when we or
ganized the Chicago stock yards. Yet
when the men got better wages the
bunk houses and the shacks ot stores
disappeared.
The men spread out into comfortable
homes, while decent stores and picture
theatres grew up. were fighting ror
that class of men here, laborers getting
from 37 to 44 cents an hour and trying
to live and raise families on It.
"Every constitutional right they have
Is abused. They 'can t .meet. wnen
they are arrested ball Is denied." )
Gruesome Strike Literature.
The strike headquarters is full of
documents bearing out this sentiment.
A copy of a Chicago paper contains
photographs of three men 'In their cof
fins, about to be burled, and surrounded
by weeping relatlves.imany' of tho men
relatives In uniform. ' The picture de
scribed what happened to. four organiz
ers In Hammond, who wero ruthlessly
shot down by company guards when
taking part in a peaceful meeting nway
from the plant.
Another frightful picture attributed to
,the minions of the' company is a picture
of a head or Mary Bneiung, who mas
fair to become the martyr .of this strike.
The picture shows her head crushed by
Hubs. Strike leaders Rlleirn she was
thus mihllated after she had been shot
to death when guards attempted to
break up a meeting.
Both these pictures are being circu
lated by thousands among the strikers.
Nor is there any reason to 'itoubt thai
uuicr iiioaua ui urbumeui even juuio
'sensational are resorted to.
According to the tales which tho men
.themselves repeat to their women folk
.they are striking "to bring booze back,
"because they'll bo killed If they don t,
"because their pay will bo cut If they
don't" and "because their pay will be
raised If they do." A powerful effort Is
being made to have It appear that Fresl
dent Wilson Is behind them.
Secretary Foster played hard on the
Wilson name at the meeting at Rankin
this afternoon. He told his hearers that
lns the courso of an hour's conference
with the President in Washington Mr,
Wilson had promised to do all that he
could for the strike cause. Ho Is also
telling them that Judge Gary turned
down hard President Wilson's request
for delay when It was made to the ateel
head through Bernard Baruch. Every
mention or me resident s name Is well
cheered at the strike meetings.
The steel officials charge the most sin
ister motives to the strike leaders. They
maintain vigorously that the union ef
fort Is rnerely for the vindication of the
power of the American Federation of
Labor. They accuse Foster of the most
radical beliefs. They Insist that In fight
ing the strike they are fighting; the battle
ot American Institutions. They say that
their precautions against violence aro
more than Justified by the previous rec
ords of the strikers and their leaders.
The strikers assert that the plants
have been "fortified." Union leaders ad
mitted to-dy that they had not been
able to pin down stories the men have
told of big shipments of rifles and of
machine guns mounted In the Plants.
Hugo stores of cots and provisions have
been brought into many of the mills, but
tne company officials Insist that they are
merely enough for the guard which pru
dnc dictates.
With regard to the Importance of the
strike on the Industry Itself an Impor
tant omcial said to-night i
"if io per cent of the men go out It
will mean thut wo will havo to bank
many ares. If more than 60 per cent go
out It will mean that the blast furnaces
will be 'pulled.' They will go down ab
solutely. We cannot run them without
adequate crews. If they go down It
will take many days to start them again.
The rolling mills also will be closed It
there are not men to operate them."
it is this man opinion that no one
can foretell how far this shutdown will
go until the end of the week at the very
earliest
Donora Looked on as Key.
As Donora goes, so go the other
plants of tho American Steel and Wire
Company in tho Pittsburg district."
That was the assertion made this
afternoon by an official of tho corpora
tion after a prolonged meeting ot heads
of various departments hurriedly called
this forenoon. When the big chiefs re
tired last evening, they had been In
formed that the Donora plant, at that
late hour, was still 95 per cent loyal to
the company and that no anxiety need
be experienced on account of It
Besides being one of the biggest and
most Important of the corporations, it
was also tho model as far as concerned
its attitude toward the American Feder
ation of Labor. Local company officers
made the announcement on Thursday
that It was actually at that time 100
per cent, aeainst the federation and that
despite what happened to the other
plants of tl.c various corporations in
this district the great Donora .plant
would bo preeminent by keeping In con
tinuous operation.
When tho officials of the national com
mittee for organizing Iron and steel
workers had been confronted with these
declarations of the company officials the
Invariable reply was that Donora did
not differ from any other plant and that
unionism was pretty well represented in
all the works. William Z. Foster, sec
retary of the organization, had stated
that the corporation officials were over
confident as to the Donora plant, as
was also the case in a good many others.
Between tho time the officials retired
last night and 10 o'cfhpk this forenoon
something happened at Donora or some
thing was discovered at that plant
Chiefs wero notified by telegram and
special messenger, while somo were
called even from church services they
wero attending.

It was then communicated to the
leaders that Donora could no longer bo
placed In the van of the first 'division
of loyal plants. As additional informa
tion reached tho captains of Industry It
was ,seen that all previous plans had to
be thrown Into the discard and heroic
efforts had to be made to prevent the
great Donora plant from being captured
by the enemy almost without a blow be
ing strucK in us defence.
As the nrst step in this new campaign
most of the actrve field operators and
several company officials were hurried
from this city In high powered automo
biles this afternoon, with Instructions' to
remain at Donora until It had beon defl-
Initely .ascertained whether the plant will
remain In operation. This may be de
cided within the next twenty-four hours.

against unionism In their own way. Tho
American sicei ana wire nviuvaiir
decided to take a definite stand against
the strikers from that of the Carnegie
Steel Company.
Tho steel and wire plant wilt pro
vide and arrange work for their em
ployees if their men cars to work, but
if an insufficient number of workers re
port for duty to-night and Monday
morning the plants will not be kept
open. No efforts will be made .to run

with small forces.
Loyal Forelsrners Threatened.
Many foreigners are "loyal" to the
plants, as that term Is now understood
by the operators, and are willing to
work, but It Is asserted that they have
been terrified by threats against them
selves and their families. Most of the
loyal American workers appear to be
undaunted by tho same threats and they
havo expressed their Intention of re
porting for work. If enough of these
report for work at the plants at Donora,
Rankin. New Kensington and Fifteenth
street (Shoenberger mill), this city.
continuous operation will be malntainea.
If not the plants will close down until
other plans have been approved.
With tho Carnegie Steel plants it will
be different This company came to a
decision to-day to fight tho union, If
possible, to an absolute finish and to
furnish adequate protection to all Its
employees willing to go to work. If one
of its plants has not sufficient men, late
to-r tight or early to-morrow morning, to
oDe.-ato to its normal capacity it will not
bo closed down. Arrangements will be
made to keep the plant going somehow
until by a process of Infiltration enough
workmen have been obtained to operate
It adequately.
In this way the chiefs of the Carnegie
Steel Company have planned to beaf the
American Federation of Labor. At flrst
sight it looks as If the Carnegie people
were inviting trouble by determining
from tho beginning to afford absolute
protection to their loyal employees. It
Is contended, however, thnt the only way
to render a nettle harmless Is by firmly
grasping It and that that Is what they
are to do so far as Is concerned their
resistance to unionism at this time.
Somewhat of a surprise was caused
to-day shortly before Secretary Foster
Jeft the city to make addresses at uraa
dock and Rankin, when It was reported
that six or seven large Independent
plants had been In negotiation with tho
organizing committee ior some time ana
that they were now ready to "sign up."
Foster said these .reports were true, but
added that It would be some time before
the names ot the corporations could be
mado public.
Says All Plants Will Start.
Lawrence "E. Riddle, superintendent
ot the Isabella, Lucy and Neville Island
plants of the Carnegie Steel Company
and ono ot the six members of the
Carnegie Steel Company a operating
board, said to-nleht :
"All the plants with! which I am
personally connected, as well as all the
other Carnegie plants In this district,
will resume. operations in full to-morrow
morninir. accordlnir to mv latest renorts.
I have kept in touch personally with'
my men "and I havo found that the
general feeling Is that the men wish to
be left alone, asserting that Secretary
Foster and his crowd do not represent
them.
"I have no doubt tnat some few men
will not show up at some or all of the
various plants In this district, as somo
of them have been intimidated by
threats. I know of some cases wltere
followers of Foster have gone to the
wives Ot not a few of our workers and
have urged them to keep their husbands
away from the plants when they open
Monday morning:, and I have no doubts
that the wives, frightened, will carry
their point
"These men will be absent, not bo
cause they belong to the Foster organ
ization, nor because they havo pledged
to remain away.
"It all the men report at the plants
Monday morning, the plants will operate
In full. If half the men put In an ap
pearance, then the plants will operate
half capacity. If fewer than half the
men report for duty, then the plants
will close and stay closed. I do not
look, however, for any such contingency
as only half of the men reporting or
even less than half. I anticipate full
crews with full capacity.
"Personally, I know the men wish to
b left alone and that they have no
Interest In Foster, asserting that he has
no real interest in them. For years, cer
tain union organizations, such as brick
layers nnd others, have worked In the
Carnegie plants without the slightest op
position on the part of the operators
and thr.t'ts the principle of the 'open
shop.' It Is under that principle that
these plants will continue to bo op
erated." Sixty per cent of more than 5,000 em
ployees of the Allegheny and West Penn
Heel companies at Brackenrldge are ex
pected to report for work at 8 o'clock
to-morrow morning, when all depart
ments of both plants are scheduled to
resume operations after a two day sus
pension, In which time the men got an
opportunity to vote on their attitude
toward a strike.
Officials of both companies declared to
night that no difficulty was anticipated
In operating mills to-morrow because
the vote of the men Saturday showed
they would return In large numbers. At
the Allegheny Steel Company T& pet cent
pt the workers were expected back, com
pany representatives said.
American Federation of Labor organ-
zers said that tho mill authorities would
get "the surprise of their lives" and,that
only a few hundred men, mostly em
ployees ot the sheet mill departments,
would report for work. As a proof of
their assertion, they pointed to a de
partment In the West Penn Steel Com
pany, where, they said, sixty-seven of
sixty-nine men hold union cards and
would walk out.
STRIKE PAMPHLETS
QUbTE RABBI WISE
Steel Worhers Protest to Gov.
Sprout on State Police.
PiTTSuuna, Sept 21. When Secretary
William Z. Foster of the steel workers'
national commttteo spoke to-night in a
Polish hall on the South Side he told
tho workers: '
The man who makes steel to-morrow
Is a strike breaker."
Pamphlets were distributed at the
meeting containing statements said to
havo been made by Rabbi Stephen S.
Wise of New York In favor of organ
ized labor In the steel Industry.
The steel workers sent to Gov. Sproul
to-night a telegram of protest against
the action of the State police in break
ing up the strike meeting at Clalrton.
The message was signed by William 55.
Foster, secretary of the strike organ
ization. He charges that the State
police Invaded a place set aside for
the meeting by the local authorities,
"riding down and clubbing helpless anl
Innocent bystanders In most murderous
fashion."
"Many were seriously injured and
many others were thrown into Jail,"
the message concluded. "Similar events
transpired at McKeesport at a meeting
held on our own property. Wo protest
against these outrages and appeal to
you to restrain the State Constabulary
from these unwarranted attacks.

were the Republic Iron and Steel, the
Sheet and Tube Company, the Brier Hill
Steel Company and the Ohio and Union
plants of the Carnegie Steel Company.
Youngstown to-oay is recalling the
riots of 1916, Labor meetings were held
this afternoon and to-night in all parts
of the city.
Merchants handling firearms have re
ported to the police that their entire
stock has been sold out. Special depu
ties have been sworn In and the police
have made preparations to handle the
situation as It develops.
Five thousand sfeel workers, the ma
jority of them foreigners, 'Joined the
Iron and Steel Workers Union to-day.
The attendance at the meetings to
day and the great number who Joined
the union at this late hour, prove to
us that the strike will completely tie
up tho steel plants In this district," de
clared J. E. McCadJen, district organ
izer for the union.
Organizers expressed the fear that
they will be unable to hold their men
in check If the mills attempt to put to
work the several thousand strikebreak
ers who havo been Imported.
"Wehave warned the men repeatedly
not to attempt any violence of any sort
and to conduct the strike ln a quiet,
orderly manner," said Patrick A. Treat,
organizer of the American Federation of
Labor, "but if the mills put these strike
breakers to work I don't know what will
happen."
Officials of the union and company
officials differ widely In their views as to
the number of men who will go out
to-morrow morning.
"We will tie tho mills up tighter than
a drum," said MoCadden late to-night
"There will be practically no one at
work to-morrow morning."
"I don't bellevo many men will strike
In our mill, said Thomas J. Bray, presi
dent of tho Republic Iron and Steel
Company. "But whether the men strike
or not, we are going to operate the
mills Just the same. The same thing
holds good for all the other mills in
the Youngstown district"
Word was received to-night at tho
steel workers' headquarters, that the
rauroaa tnvuenmen piannca a sympa-
thetlc strike in an effort to tie up all
shipments of steel from this district.
Approximately S 5,000 men will be af
fected by the strike in the Youngstown
