The steel workers employed at the
Wheeling1 Iron and steel works met In
the Bemvood city hall yesterday afternoon
to consider the reduction of wages
proposed by the president of the company,
Mr. C. TL Hubbard, last Satur*
The meeting, which was well attended,
was called to order at 2 o'clock. Th einen
unanimously declined to accept the reduction,

company had nothing definite to offer;
even at the reduction it did not guarantee
any work. The failure of the company
in this respect was probably the
greatest stumbling block to the men's
consideration of a reduced scale.
Jt was aiso shown that, -were the steelworkers
of ?uis particular plant to wont
under such ?j reduction, one which averaged
a cut of ten to fifteen per cent, on
all the employes wages, excepting those
of the laborer, the tfteelworkers employed
in other local plants, would soon have
to face a similar reduction. The men at
their meeting expressed themselves as
being totally opposed to accepting the
reduction, which would practically be
working under the scale of 18$4.
The present agreement between the
company and men requires either side
.to give thirty days notice before a
change in the scale will go into effect. I
The men are hopeful that the market I
wii be so improved in a months time that
no reduction 'will be Justifiable. Ben- j
wood citizens do not anticipate any eerious
hkch, though it is said the steel
plant will be closed if the men persist in
their refusal. The situation has been
very gloomy for some time, and as the
steel workers have had comparatively
little employment for the past year. It
will not cause s?? much surprise If further
idleness is the outcome of the present
