REPORTS DENIED AMD NEW ONES
Started About m Fut-Th? Variou* Cooperative
Project and Their Pro?pecU
and Proffreee?No Offer* of a Compromise
by the Mannfactnrere.
The Pittsburgh Commtrcial Gazelle yesterday
contained a statement that "\yithin
the past few days three nail faatoriea
have offered compromises to the striking
nailers, which in each case was refused.
The factories are situated in the Wheeling
district, and the compromise was
handed to the mill committeei first, by
tbem riven to the various lodges, and by
the lodges sent to the Executive Board of
the Nailer's Union. ;ln neither case waa
it affirmatively recommended. The compromise
oifrfvd was to the effect that the
dlmu uo uhi'u ui1 n n-vouii ioid aw??^
I card, to increase or decrease 1 cent with
each '2b cento increase or decrease in the
card rate; the claoM that breakages should
bo charged, to the nailer was cut oat, as
well as the clause demanding a 25 percent
extra reduction on self feeders; but the
compromise demanded that a certain percentage
of fedder nailers ^should be retained."
It was this demand which made
it impossible that the compromise could
even bo considered, according to the paper
quoted.
Secretary "Wise, of the Western Nail
Association, was yesterday seen by an
Intklliubncbh reporter. He pronounced
the report quoted above untrue and unfounded.
Another published report to the effect
that a notice bad been posted at the Belmont
mill, informing the new nailers that
they would be required to pay for tools
and machines broken by them, was also
enmhaticallv denied yesterday by Mr.
Dubois, President of .that company.
The Bellaire JndtptixdcU is authority
for the statement that "The probabilities
are that the Bellaire Xail Works will
close for an indefinite length of time the
day before Christmas?it may run a week
longer." A gentleman aaid laat night that
the Bellaire mill had offered its workmen
a longer run if they would accept a
reduction to a nineteen cent basis. Probably
this is the origin of the Pittsburgh
story of an oiler of compromise.
The following, from another exchange,
also seems to throw some light on some of
the reports that aro current: "It is now
pretty well known that at the last meeting
of the Western Nail Association, which
lasted far into the night, some of the manufacturers
not running and some who aro
using feeders as nailers threatened to sign
the 21-cent sole and go to work in full
unless tho factories who have been running
on the 21-cent scale without any*
trouble whatever cease work. This provoked
a long discussion, with just what
real result is not known to any certainty,
but the fact that the card price of nails
was advanced to $2 50, which gives to the
feeder-nailers one cent increase, and the
other fact that on the strength of this one
cent increase they were all notified that
they must now conform to the other provisions
of the Cincinnati icale, which provides
that they shall pay for all breakages,
looks as though there was something in
the wind, and the nailers are not discouraged
in the vicinity of Wheeling, though
they are expecting the present situation to
keep up nearly if not quite all winter.
Some of the feeders, too, regard this action
as a blow at the feeder-nailers that
will virtually displace three-fourths, if
not more, of them."
NEW TAUTFACTOBY
On th? 0<t*op?rattr? Pita to be FarnUhcd
wllh Machines from flora,
Hon* A. J. Sweeney returned home yesterday
from Bjlleville1 111., where he
went to bid on a contract for furnishing
thirty nail .machines to the new co-opei
V ... ? J
erative Company receuuy lornjea mere,
which is largely made up of atrjkirg nailers.
Tne mouied mau in the enterprise
is understood to be a wealthy lawyer,
Mr. Sweeney tecurcd the contract for the
firm of* Mweeney A Sun, of this city,
after sharp bidding ugaiust Pittsburgh
men, but it was at a price, so reported,
about 10 pe>?jnt below what machines
were made for last year. Rather
than reduce wages ho held a
conference with his men yesterday, explained
the situation and asked them to
exercise 10 percent more care and skill,
in order to let the firm get out whole on
the job and avoid a reduction o( waxes.
It iB almost needless to state that the
workmen cheerfully promised to do what
was asked of them. The finishing up ol
theso machines will involve an expenditure
of between $10,000 and $12,000 in
wastes during the next three or four
months,
The Hills Klaewhor*.
The Sou th Chicago Calumet saj s: ''Things
it the Cummings nail mill remain in itaiu
quo. In the factory we recognisod the
usual number of hands at the machines,
:here being no increase and no loss. In
(he mill some changes of men have occurred,
but nothing affecting the general situI'-.I?

KllUU. I'UUDI HIU i UHU| l/? ?..vu.v.wU.
Weihe some new men have taken' their
old jobs. Tbe output of nails yesterday
was 1JK) kegs? nineteen thousand pounds.
This strikes us as not a bad yield for the
uumbor of machines running."
Tbe Steubenville Herald, speaking of
the co-operative mill there, says: "The
machinery has been promised to the company
in ten 'days. Stonemasons are at
work on foundations, which will bs completed
on Wednesday. In tbe eait end of
the laiga room an office has been built and
the lumber for the flooring ordered. The
first machinery to arrive will be the
engine, 75 horse power, and boiler, both
of whloh are entire new machines. Five
grindstones, three face and two bead
tonos, together with phasing, pulloys,
etc., are expected gt thn same time, aud
January 1st will see the naij machines
here, it is expected that nails will be cut
in th? first or second week of the coming
month."

Vice Preaident Bradley, of the Cilumet
Iron and 8teel Company, recently aald
[hat he feared no immediate outbreak in
the ranka of the striking nailtn there.
"There ia no indication of such a thing
happening," aald Mr. ttrfdley. "The
men, of course, atill continue to demand
tbo 21-cent rate, but the reply invariably
received ia that they may work at our
rate?1" conta?or nothing. Tuey feel
displeased, aa was expected, bat they have
gone to work under the idea, no doubt,
that half a loaf la better than none."
Sometime ago It was autod by a member
of an iron firm that manufacturera would
not employ atriking nailera ao long aa they
remaiued members of the Nailera Union.
Mr. Bradley waa aaked if there waa any
truth in the aaaertion, and without heaiUncyheaald:
"I do not think that the
man who made the atatement hid the
leaat athority for doing ao. Our worka are
always opened to nailera whether they
are union or non-union if they wiah to
commence work at our pricea, and I believe
that every nail manufacturer in the
Wratwill say the aame thing. Now we
have begun to break our feeders in aa
nailera, and considerable time matt necee *

liclent; but when a feeder bu acquired
the work of keeping the knivea in running
order he la given a machine to
operate, and then we hire new feeders.
By spring time I believe we will have
sufficient feeders broken in to run all the
machines and jut aa.aoon aa the time arrivee
the mills will be running to their
fullest capacity."

thouaanda of readers of the Intklliokncir,
Jewelry is a popular article in the ChriBtmaa
time, and Mr. J. W. Grubb's store
starea you in the face from the middle
of the page. You need go no
farther if you seek a reliable, enterprising
dealer, with a large and varied
stock. Musical gifts, from a piano to the
lateat popular composition, are announced
by Mr. fiaumer. Fine furniture, in a
great range of styles and prices, gives a
-rare chance to please and benolit a friend,
and the Messrs. Mendel speak of something
that ought to interest all. Harrington
& Go.'s mammoth stores certainly afford
aa wide a range as can be demanded
by tbe moat divers tastes in ury goous ana
kindred lines. A suit of clothes from
Moffatt?what could be more acceptable
to father, husband or brother. Mr. Gundling
calls attention to specialties always
in liberal request in the holidays.
With "Ease" a man or woman
can select at Frew A Bertachy's storerooms
a car-load of presents. Their furniture
is all new, and necessarily just in

and novelties especially fitted for tbe season,
J. B. Wilson speaks. Her stock
speaks more loudly for itself than tbe

Smyth or Warthen & Tiemann can furnish
everything requisite for th3 Christinas

that is a comprehensive page!
To the gentlemen, a word of advice:
For Christmas?and at other seasonssend
your linen to the Home Laundry if
you want it returned ''like newgo to
Lewis & Clemens for a clean, satisfactory
shave; buy your cigars for your own or
your friend's use, at Loos's; get your cutter
lor a Christmas sleigh ride at Luke's;
that box of candy you want when you
mako that lengthy call, at Durst's; and if
you need direction in their lines, read the
tempting remarks of Messrs. Kraus, McLaughlin
& McGinley or John Sheekey.

*ta|i of the Water and Movements of the
Steamboats.
The Katie Stockdale is due down this
morning.
During the past two days a number of
towboata have passed thia point with (rood
sized tows of coal from the Monongahela
region for Cincinnati and Louiaville.
The Hibernia, which has been chartered
by the Bay Bros., will be brought back
from Indiana and take the place of the
Hosedale in the 1'arkeraburg and Charleaton
trade,
The O'Neal raised steam at Steubenville
yesterday morning but did not start out
on her regular trip. A large quantity ol
ice had accumulated on the hull and all
morning was spent in breaking it off. She
will bo down this morning.
The Andes is this afternoon's packet for
Cincinnati. Her hour of departure is 3
o'clock. Capt. Charlie Muhletnan is in
command and Measrs. Mart Nolh and
Charlie Knox do the honors in the office.
The Audes is a deservedly popular packet
and enjoys the full confidence of ail who
have ever patronised her.
The Km ma Graham disaster occurred
just a few rods below where the Sidney
burat her steam pipe three years ago.
The Graham was the boat that picked up
the ntutaemrera of the Kidnev at the time
of the occurrence. The Graham will
doubtless prove a total loss, aa she will be
completely submerged by tne coming rise.
The old steamer Hudson has met her
fate. A few days since in attempting to
get over a bar a few miles below bt. Louis
she ran hani aground and was tinable to
get off. It was reported to the steamer's
officers that there was seven and a half
feet on the bar, but this was a mistake.
The steamer was well loaded And drawing
over five feet. Afterrunnlng on the river
commenced falling and at last she broke.
She was insured. It is understood that
she was to have been sent to Pittsburgh
this winter to have her machinery and
part of her cabin placed on a new hull.
uapt. Kees, oi ntuuurgli, is a urge owner
in the steamer.
The river was still falling at dtuk last
evening. The depth in the channel waa
IS feet y Inches. A rise may be looked
for, however, within the next twenty-four
honra, notwithstanding the cold snap that
set in last ovening. The Signal Service
officer at Pittsburgh reports that all the
confluents of the Allegheny and Monongahela
are rising and there nave been anow
and rain etorraa along each. At Pittsburgh
last evening the river was 0 feet 8
inches and rising; Morgantown, 12 feet
and rising; Parker, S feet B inchea and on
a stand; Lock No. 4,13 feet U inchea and
riaing; Jlrowaville, 13 feet 6 inchea and
rising; Oil City, i feet and stationary;
Greensboro, 17 feet 1 inch and riling.
THE W. P. B. 80C11UT
Adopts a Nsw Plan for Replenishing Its
Depleted Treasury.
Yesterday the Women's Union Benevolent
Society, ol this city, sent out
l through the mail 2,000 circulars addressed
to citisens. asking for a contribution of one
dollar from each. Attached to each circular
is a aiip on which the name of the
contributor is to be written and enclosed
with the money in;thr addressed envelope
that accompanies each circular. It is not
1 expected that those who feel that they
i can give more than one dollar will confine
. themselves to that sum. The mors re,
ceived, the merrier will be made
the hearts ol the ladies of the Society,
1 who are engaged in a grand good work,
! that benefits not only those forced by unfortunate
circumstances to sppeal to them
forbid, but in a general way the entire
city. Nor is it expected that those who
failed to receive ope of the circulars and
who feel themselves in a position to aid a
worthy cause will refrain from contributing
because not asked; they may have
been accidentally overlooked in sending
the requests out, or their names may not
have been know^o the committee. AH
contributions wm be gladly received if
directed to the Society, in care of the Exchange
Bank.
Ever since the cold weather set in, the
demands of those in urgent need of aid '
have been ateadily increasing, and the
funds of the society have as steadily de- '
creased, until the treasury is at a very
low ebb. Instead of giving an entertain- ,
ment, baziar or festival, as in the past, <
which entails much hard work and a i
large expense, not only to the Societv but
those that attend, the present mode has
been adopted. It should prove successful. \
This society was organised three years
ago. It is non-sectarian and it provides
only those necessaries of life, food and '
clothing, which are not furnished by the
city authorities. No money is given in
any case, but all charities are distributed
by means of orders for the articles to be
supplied. All cases are investigated, and 4
care taken to pervent imposition, by the ,
various Ward Committees before the J
society acts.
