Abstention From Work. Seems to Be
the General Rale.
Youngstown, Ohio, July 15. —Not a wheel
was turned this morning in any of the
plants of the American Steel Hoop com
pany or American Sheet Steel company
in the Mahoning valley. The sixth dis
trict is the strongest numerically in the
Amalgamated association and the men are

sued by President Shaffer. The steel
hoop company has five plants in Youngs
town, Girard, Warren and Grenville and
the sheet combine has four in Struthers
and Niles. All are organized. In this
valley 7,500 men are directly or indirectly
affected by the strike.
Cleveland, July 15.—Between 400 and
800 men employed at the Crescent Tin
Plate mills in this city obeyed the strike
order of President Shaffer to-day and as

The Crescent is the only plant affected in
Cleveland by the strike order. It is

Anderson. Ind., July 15.—A strike of 500
men was inaugurated in the tin plate
mills here to-day. All members of the
Amalgamated association obeyed the
strike order and the mills are closed. At
Middleton. Ind., the mills also were shut
down by the strike. At Elwood the strike
order in the mills of the American Tin
Plate company were obeyed without ques

the mills have been idle, although
ordinarily there is a shut down of one
to three months. Two thousand men are
affected at Elinwood.
Niles, Ohio, July 15.—As a result of the
Strike order issued by the Amalgamated
association, the 800 men employed by the
American Tin Plate company did nqt re

American Sheet Steel company here has
been closed since July 1, but preparations
have been under way for an early resump

Youngstown, Ohio, July 15.—Local
Officials of the American Steel Hoop com
pany were somewhat surprised to-day by
the appearance of a number of foremen
from the mills of the Republic Iron and
Steel company among the former's work
men who joined the strike to-day and
offering them all jobs. The republic com
pany is independent of the United
States Steel corporation and is gathering
in many immediate delivery orders which
formerly went to the steel hoop company
and with the assistance of the strikers
these orders can be filled.
Their Abundance Makes- the Strike
New York, July 15.—Vice President
Arms, of the American Tin Plate com
pany, said of the strike, that the ques
tion at issue was the right of the three
companies to run their own mills and
to protect the men who worked in them.
No question of wages was involved.
Under this year's scale the men were
getting higher wages than ever before.
The company d*d not consider that it was
the aggressor. The demand of the Amal
gamated association was that every plant
be made a union plant. The companies
had offered to give the union more mills
than ever before, but Insisted on protect
ing the non-union men in the non-union
plants, many of whom did not wish to
become union men. Many of the man
ufacturers who went into the combina
tion owning non-union plants did not
vrlah to have their factories run on a
tin ion basis.
Mr. Arms said the company would ask
Jfor no more conferences, but would be
•willing to meet the representatives of
the strikers if they had any concessions

Trill not be able to turn a single wheel
to-morrow. We have our forces thor
oughly organized, and there will be some
Burprises in store. I have not heard to
day from a single lodge in answer to my
strike order, but an answer is not neces
■ary. The order will be promptly obeyed
by all our men. But there will be no trou
ble. Labor organizations have changed.
The amalgamated association is not the
association it was twenty years ago—not
•yen five years ago. The men are more
readily controlled; in fact, we have our
men under control."
President Shaffer watj asked if he
had set a time when, no settlement having
been effected, he would extend the strike
to all the subsidiary eteel companies of
the United States Steel corporation. He
said he must decline to make his plans
known at present.
It may be said, however, on the strength
of reliable information, that the strike
■within its present limits is intended mere
ly ?.« a show of strength.
At the conference last week the represen
tatives of the steel corporation were re
peatedly warned that the association was
much stronger than they knew. They
were even told of the organization of mills
of which they had no knowledge. But
the steel men would not believe that the
association was ac strong as it was
claimed to be. Thus, it is believed, the
first purpose of the association is to show
its strength by confining the strike to

The uneasiness after eating, fits or nerv

Dyspepsia is such a miserable disease
that the tendency to it should be given
early attention. This is completely over

made, whatever it may prove to be, the
association expects the companies to ask
for another conference. If the companies
show no inclination to make a settlement,
the strike will be extended to three more
companies. If the trust will not yield
then, tho strike will be extended to such
independent companies as sell their fin
ished products or raw materials to com
panies against which a strike has been
declared. Should the strike attain such
proportions, it would be likely to go still

UGLY IN SOUTH ~AFBIGA
BRITONS NATURALLY DISSATISFIED
They Find the Smallest Possible
Amount of Comfort In the Pres
ent Aspect of the Wat,
London, July 15.—Returning British offi
cers do not speak hopefully of the situa
tion in South Africa. They assert that the
railways are securely held and that there
are small zones around Bloetnfontein,
Pretoria and Johannesburg where it is
possible for inhabitants to settle down and
to resume their usual occupations without
fear of disturbance, but apart from the
pacification of these small spheres of Brit
ish influence there are few signs of pro
gress. The railway line from Johannes
burg to Laings Nek is still menaced and
the Dutch section along the South Orange
river is ravaged by guerrillas, and broad
districts of the Transvaal and the Orange
River colony are only kept quiet by being
emptied of their population through re
peated marches of strong columns. In
Cape Colony Scheepers is giving to Gen
eral French considerable trouble.
The feeling in England is far more bit
ter against Mr. Steyn, who has just nar
rowly escaped capture by Broadwood's
column, than against Mr. Kruger, the for
mer being regarded as Interfering in a
quarrel not concerning him, and, apart
from the impression which his being made
prisoner would undoubtedly have made in
the Orange River colony, his escape will
cause great disappointment.
Of the generals in South Africa, Lord
Methuen is the most highly commended
by the officers serving under him. He is
described as one of the most energetic
and reso:urceful generals at the front. In
stead of complaining of the harsh criti
cism to which he was subjected, he has
remained in the service and displayed un
tiring industry and gallantry.

Sleet To-morrow at Fargo.
Special to The Journal.
Fargo, N. D., July 15.—The Tristate
Drainage Canal association convenes here
to-morrow for a three-days' session. The
attendance is expected to be larger than
at any of the former meetings, and direct
results of an important nature are an
ticipated. The plans for having the sur
veys made and interesting congress in the
proposed appropriation will be elaborated.
There is a lot of data necessary upon
which a proper Bhowing can be made be
fore congress, and this material will be
secured at the earliest possible date.
Preliminary surveys of the proposed
reservoirs are absolutely necessary. The
fact that the plan has the indorsement of
the United States engineers as to its feas
ibility and the indorsement of the legis
latures of Minnesota and the Dakotas as
to its necessity is expected to be an im
portant factor in influencing the action
of congress. The further fact that the
amount of the entire appropriation asked
for is no more than the damages by flood
in one year, is also a strong showing.
With a rainfall of a foot in thirty days
—as occurred here the last three weeks of
June and the first week in July—there is
no longer any question as to the need 6f
better methods of getting rid of the sur
plus water and controlling the supply
from the source. If the claims of the
engineers that the reservoirs will control
a third of the water is true, the problem
of flood prevention seems solved.

Wheat Not So Badly Hurt, After All
HIT ONLY IN SPOTS
But Little Damage to Wheat Re

And That Seems to Be Restricted to
Parts of South Dakota—Har

: tion. :

: Chinch bugs are working in the :
: grain in some sections. Many :
: authorities say that the wheat :
: plant is too far advanced to suf- :
: fer serious damage from bugs. :
That is a fair estimate of the damage
to northwestern crops by the extreme
warm weather of the past few days,
made from reports received by local grain
and railroad men this morning. Many of
the grain men sent inquiries to the coun
try last night asking for reports of dam
age, if any.
South Dakota Reports Vary.
South Dakota and southern Minnesota
are having the most trouble. The hot
weather in the former state and the
chinch bugs in the latter section have
been the main causes of the alarm. There
is much difference of opinion as to the
damage the bugs can do at this time,
but the largest estimate will affect the
general result slightly.
Reports received from Aberdeen and
other points in northern South Dakota
vary greatly as to the extent of the
damage. Yesterday and the day before
the farmers of that section were more or
less discouraged. Yesterday many were
estimating the damage done to grade as
high as 30 per cent and to the yield from
30 to 40. The change to a lower temper
ature which occurred this morning cooled
the figures off and the highest estimates
of damage did not go over 20 per cent.
The same difference is noted from the
Yankton section, but a fair estimate of
the damage done to the grade in that
section is 10 per cent.
E. C. Wearne of Webster, S. D., in the
city to-day says the wheat is all right
in sections where there has been plenty
of rain—which means most of the state.
The stand in such cases is so good as to
furnish shade and protection for the roots
and lower stalks. He believes that while
the heat has done some damage, it has
been much less up to date than reported.
Worth Dakota Is O. K.
North Dakota has fared well. The
wheat plant is vigorous and there has
been plenty of moisture. The north state
has not had it quite as hot as South Da
kota, the latter scoring as high as 103.
The North Dakota grain has had a rank
growth and is well rooted. It has re
quired warm, dry weather to advance it
properly, and. while it could have got
ten along nicely with a few degrees less
of heat, it has come through the warm
spell in good shape.
W. C. Leistlkow, the Grafton miller, is
in the city to-day, and says that the grain
in the valley could stand several days
of weather at 95 degrees or possibly a
little warmer. Reports of rain are being
received to-day from various parts of
North Dakota. Grain growers in that
state hope that the showers will cease.
Several of the local elevator men say
that the crop situation in North Dakota
is most encouraging.
What reports the railroads have re
ceived on North Dakota or Minnesota
report little damage. The Soo has a re
port from one of its superintendents re
porting trifling damage at a few sta
tions. Soo reports indicate that the
general conditions in Minnesota are not
as good as on the Dakota lines. Some
parts of Minnesota have not had enough
rain and many stations report chinch
bugs. The Minneapolis & St. Louis has
had few reports of damage.
A report from Aberdeen says that har
vesting will begin there the latter part
of the week.
What reports are received from Ne
braska indicate about the same extent
of damage to wheat as in South Dakota.

Bd Mart's Frightful Experience

Jamestown, N. D., July 15—Ed Mart was
fatally scalded shortly after midnight Sun
day morning. Mart crawled into an exhaust
box near the Northern Pacific roundhouse
earlier in the evening and went to sleep.
Shortly after midnight Engineer McCabe took
engine No. 91 down to blow off some steam
through the exhaust box. The engineer
turned the steam into the box for a few"
seconds and then decided to turn the steam
into the box on the other side of the en
gine. This decision was all that saved Mart
from being instantly killed. After a while
Mart succeeded in getting out and walked
half a mile to the Capital Hotel. From there
he was taken to the city hospital. The flesh
on his body is cooked in places and his lower
limbs, which were nearest the engine are
an awful sight. He cannot recover. Mart
was a recent arrival from Minnesota and re
fuses to state what town he came from. He is
21 years of age and unmarried.

Specials to The Journal.
Aberdeen, S. D., July 15.—Nearly half
an inch of rain fell last night, greatly
benefiting crops. Wheat in Brown coun
ty is not nearly as badly damaged as it is
reported to be by "sidewalk farmers" and
speculators. The crop will mature early
because of the hot weather. Some of the
stalks have been "tipped," but the crop
is good yet, except the latest sown. Har
vest will begin the last' of next week.
Men for harvesting and threshing ma
chines are badly needed.

A general prayer meeting was held
just before the rain came. Some asked
the Lord to fetch rain in his own good

It began to lighten and thunder before
the meeting was over.
Bath, S. D., July 15.—The hot weather
of Friday, Saturday and Sunday greatly
hastened the ripening grain. Some farm
ers expect to commence cutting wheat
the latter part of this week. While the
yield has been reduced some and the
quality lowered, the damage is not as
great as claimed by some.
Owing to the heavy growth ot straw it
will take just as much help to do the
harvesting, but the work will be lighter
and won't last quite as long. Men coming
in to harvest can get a long job thresh
ing which promises to last all fall.
Help is scarce and wages high.
Flandreau, S. D., July 15.—Harvest be
gan in this county the middle of last
week. A large acreage of barley has
been cut. The recent hot winds have
been maturing wheat and oats very rap
idly, and it is feared farmers will not
have help enough to properly attend to
their crops as they ripen. The wheat
crop still looks better than the average,
but flax and corn are ,suffering from the
dry weather. The thermometer has reg
istered heat from 90 to 100 during the
last three days.
Big Stone, S. D., July 15.—The hot
south winds have been drying up the
crops. The grain was just filling and the
damage was heavy, but just how much
cannot be estimated until the weather
changes. The westbound freight set fire
to the grass beside the track in four
places between here and Milbank. In on*
place the fire ran a quarter of a mile and
burned off a dozen telegraph poles. In
another, near the Milbank slaughter house
it burned the grass off from about forty
acres and destroyed some fencing. The
section crew from Milbank arrived in time
to save the slaughter house.
Britton, S. D., July 15.—A1l the wheat
crop that has been well put is is looking
fine. Oats are the best seen in this sec

a late severe frost will be light. Flax
in general is very weedy and outlook
very unpromising. A magnificent growth
of grass is seen, and perfect hay weather
prevails. The mercury has been regis
tering 98 in the shade.
Milbank, S. D., July 15.—The present
heated spell is a record breaker in this
state. Never, as far as known, has the
thermometer ranged above 100 for three

damage to crops by hot winds will have
to be increased, but cannot be accurately

Ortonville, July 15.—The weather is ex

Special to The Journal.
lowa Falls, lowa, July 15.—The appear
ance of the dreaded chinch bug in this
section has added to the troubles of the
farmer, who at present is badly worried
over the continued hot weather that is
having a bad effect on crops in many lo
calities. The bug has as yet made its ap
pearance in isolated spots, but fear of its
spreading and* becoming general in this
locality has made many apprehensive of
full crops of small grain.
Dubuque, lowa, July 15.—The continued
drought and intensely hot weather has
seriously hurt all crops except possibly
corn, and that is not so well situated that
it will escape destruction unless rain falls
soon. The ground is dry and hard, actual
ly baked, and to place it in proper condi
tion will require several days' heavy rain.
The best estimate of farmers on the hay
crop is about one-half, while a majority
express the opinion that it will not ex
ceed one-fourth of that of 1900. Oats
have matured too rapidly, the result be
ing a very small and light grain, while the
straw is short and thin. The army worm
has appeared in places, but so far has
done but little damage. Early potatoes
are a failure, and without copious rains
the late varieties will not do well. Very
little wheat is raised in this section, but
what is growing seems to be in fair condi
tion, considering the weather. The bad
effect of the crop situation upon stock is
already apparent, and farmers who had
prepared for stock raising on a larger
scale than for several years before, now
say that the enterprise will result in
heavy loss because loss of pastures and
storage of feed compel them to sell to
feeders at a sacrifice.
KAISER AND EARL
Wilhelm Said to Have Prevented the
I: f Rosebery-Albany Betrothal.
2T»u> York Sun Special Servian.
' London, July —It is now believed that
the betrothal of Lord Rosebery to the Duchess
of Albany was prevented by the Emperor of
Germany. The objection is based on the
fact that Rosebety is not of royal blood,
that the duchess Is not only a princess of the
blood royal, but the daughter-in-law of
Queen Victoria, the sister-in-law of the reign
ing King of England, the widow of the kai
ser's uncle and the mother of a German
sovereign, the Grand Duke of ' Saxe-Coburg.
In some quarters it is believed that the an-
nouneement of the engagement was prema
ture and that the denial is only a diplomatic
more on the part of King Edward, who is
known to favor the union. The marriage
may, therefore, -fft take place.

INDIGNANT IOWA MOB'S WORK

Sioux City, lowa, July 15.—A special

beating his wife last Friday morning.
The mob took the prisoner to the Rock

country. He was given strict warning
that if he ever came back to town a
worse dose would be given him. The

three little children and has supported
the children and the father by taking

had deferred sentence until Sunday at

of the mob and is putting forth every
effort to discover Puls, and if possible
locate and punish the members of the
