TRUST MAKING GALS Steel Mill Officials Receiving Many Applications far Work. SETERALPLAXTS SOON 10 BK STARTED Little of Interest About the Auislga- Dated Association lldciirteri Yw tanlajr-Offldale at MoKeeeport Aek lot Police Protection. v PlttBburg, Pa, Aug. 30.-Ofhclals of the mills of the United States Hteel corporation that were cloned by the strike of the Amalgamated associa. tion stated yesterday that they are receiving many applications from former employes for work. The an aouncement that the company would Start their mills non-union has, the officials beliefs, caused a weakening; in the ranks of the strikers and many are seeking cover. The Amalgamated officials, however, claim that their ranks are unbroken and strong as ever. One of the steel officials said yesterday that there was a general mistake being made regarding the tine It would take to train Inex perienced men and make t hem capable 01 operating mill machines. This has been believed to be the case so long that few have taken the trouble to prove it otherwise. It is now deter mined, he said, to hare new men placed in positions that will give them chance to learn the skilled work and many of the men who held menial positions in the union mills are to be taught skilled work with which they are in a measure familiar 4h....k . 1..tlA til.

It is confident ly asserted that before many months pass It will be possible to produce many new men and plenty to man all the plants that are now idle and which union men hnve refused to Iske hold of. The strikers say It Will take years to accomplish this. Beports from all Hie mills of the corporation show that sternly gnlns are being mnile In the force of non union men. The strikers claim to have Induced six ion-union men to desert the Star mills yesterday and to have shipped them buck to Chi rago, whence they cnine. On the other hand Superintendent Viper, of the SI ii i' plant, announced Unit, lie Is nearly ready to shirt up the other mills In the plnnt anil the men now waiting for the improvements to he completed arc In the mill. In the ratntcr mills tlur work In progress ing smoothly mid no desertions lire reported. N'ew men are being se cured, though the compmiy officials say that on Riindiiya, the strikers make an active ennvuss of the homes of the men nt work anil seek to In duce them to remain iiwny from the plnnt. The last two mills in the Talntcr plnnt were to have been start ed yesterday, but It wits found Im possible to have them ready and the Starting was postponed for a few toys. Pickets about the Lindsay VeCntcheon plant In Allegheny claimed to have turned back a new man yesterday who was bound for .the mills. Other than this there was 'fio change In the Allegheny plant. 1 The only significant action In Law rencevllle yesterday was the success ful starting of the guide mill In the lower Union mills of the Carnegie company, The start wns made, ac cording to the officials, with n full crew and the mill will be run with out Interruption. Regarding the ru mor that the steel workers' strike would affect the opening of the win dow glass plants this fall, a promi nent manufacturer yesterday said the reason given for this was absurd. The building tnnles, he said, have not been affected by the strike In the least, as wns claimed. The struc tural steel mills have not been stopped at any time and buildings have been carried up without Inter ruption. If there Is a delay In start ing the glass factory fires, they say, It will lie for other causes. There wns little of interest about the hendUiirters of the Amalgamated association yesterday. The American Tin I'lnte enmpnuy has announced that It will stnrt the Dcmmler mills nf the comnnnv nevt. Mnndnv. Police- protection has been asked from Muyor Thick, of McKeesport. Officials of the Amalgamated asso ciation will not discuss the report of Injunctions being served against their members St Canal Dover, 0., until they hear officially from their dis trict officers, it Is believed by ninny of the lay memliers of the associa tion that some effective way will he found by which Injunctions can be circumvented. Heports last night from outside points Indicate no change whatever In the strike situation. Much interest Is being taken at. McKeesport over the announcement Hint the Dcmmler plant will surely be slnrted on Mon day, and the strikers say every pos sible effort will be peaceably and lawfully made to prevent the com pany making a success of Its venture. Turned Down tht Arbitration Proposal. Pittsburg, Pa, Sept. t. The prin ciple Interest la strike matters yes terday was centered in the Duquesne plant, where it was expected the strikers would make a decided move toward closing down the cutire works. The report from there luat liight said I lie situation was critical. The night turn is badly crippled, but men were brought from the Bessemer department to help and the mill Is running full. Sixty of the day turn men were off and the strikers any not a man will report to-day. If the open hearth is shut down the 40-inch mill must also shut down. This mill suppllea Monessen, Vandergrift and tin mills, hence the movement is lm vortant to the strikers. Mill officio'1 admit that a strike Is on, lift say no serious results will follow. President Simon "Burns, whose re puted interview with President C. M. Schwab in New York over the long distance telephone is generally be lieved, said yesterday that he had not henrd anything new from New York. He remained absolutely non-commit-till regarding his plans for bringing about peace, but he is hopeful and evidently believes that some solution of the present serious predicament of (lie Amalgamated association will ultimately be found. The attempt, of the Star tin plate mill officials to bring in additional forces early yesterday morning had the effect of keeping a large force of striken' pickets about the mill yesterday. It is reported that the company ran In eight men from Phil adelphia and that the strikers pulled out four deserters from the mill. There was nothing attempted in the way of picket duty about the Painter mills during the day. The strikers spent a portion of the day making personal rails to the homes of the men working in the mills and who live In the west end. These visits are repeated every week and thus far hnve accomplished but little. Tieports from the other plants show an unchanged condition. It is given out that the officials of the strikers will not permit any relaxation of the picket duty to-day, In spite of the special ceremonies going on In the Interest of organized lalior. The force of pickets will be maintained In every vicinity and nil mills will be kept continually under the eyjs of the strikers, who will be able to act promptly should non-union men ar rive nt any hour of the day or night, It has been generally believed that the corporation would take advan tage of Labor day to rush In a Inrger force of non-unionists than usual and this has been provided for. Between 20 and 110 non-union work men arrived at Cumil Dover, 0 yes terday by special train to go to work In the sheet plant. The management claims that four mills will be running one turn this morning and that the bain nee will be In operation In the near future. The strikers continue to watch the milt from a distance, but nothing approaching Interference oc curred to-day. The strikers stole a march on the manager of the Star tin plant at about miduight Inst night and took from him nine of a pnrty of 12 non- unionists being tuken to the mill. A dispatch from Milwaukee says that the. members of the Hnyvlew oilge of the Amulgamatnd association listened to a statement by J. D, Illckey Inst night In which Mr, Hlckey reported In detnil what trans pired at the meeting of the Amalga mated association officials and the officers of the United States Steel cor poration, Mr. Iliekey snys the strike is practically lost, as 72 per cent, of the mills are now working. No ac tion wns taken by the lodge there. Another meeting vill be held in a week. NEBRASKA REPUBLICANS. rhey Nominate a Jostleo of the Supremo Court and Two tfnlveralty Regenta Hartler'a Case. Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 2!), Republic ans of Nebraska, in stnte convention esterduy nfternoon, after a night of conflict and a morning of uncertainty, nominated the following ticket! Jus tice of supreme court,v Samuel II. Sedgwick, of York county; regents f university, Cnrl J, Ernst, of Lan caster, and H. L. Ooold, of Keith. A platform was also adopted In har mony with pnrty policies. The ac tion of Gov. Savage in paroling from the penitentiary former State Treas- rer Joseph 8. M. Hartley furnished, s was expected, the only real excite ment of the convention. An effort to isposc of the vexed question of an indorsement or disapproval of the governor's action outside the conven tion signally failed. Supporters of the governor did succeed In having all resolutions referred to the committee on platform without debate, but the committee Itself reported In turn gainst the parole, and, while not mpugnlng the motives of the gov ernor, dcinnnded the return of the ex trensurer to the penitentiary and wns sustained by the convention.

The Public Satisfied Steel Strike Is Now One of Endurance. PREPARATIONS FOR OPESISG PLANTS rear That Striken May Commit Dnlawf al . AcU-A Force of Men Pat to Work to Dismantle the MclUr Cbala Work. Pittsburg, Pa,, Sept. 3. The big La bor day demonstration monopolized tha attention of workmen and atrik ers here and in the surrounding towns, but the steel manufacturers went on making preparations for the opening of the plants that are shut down by the strike and increasing the number of men at the milla al ready in partial operation. Public In terest In the strike itself is lagging, as the contest seema to have settled down to an issue of endurance. Evi dences of impatience are cropping out on the side of the strikers, and the authorities fear that the unlawful acts participated in by the strikers Sunday night and yesterday about the Star tin plant may multiply and spread to other quarters. The officials of the Star plant claim that yesterday picketa about their mill held up a special delivery bo from the post office with a letter for the office while he was coming down Twelfth street and inspected the let ter before he was allowed to proceed. The matter will be reported to the postal authorities at once. It is also charged that the strikers stoned the company carriage on Penn avenue yesterday morning, but did no special damage to the occupants. The ag gressiveness of the strikers was fur ther demonstrated late yesterday aft ernoon when a mob Surrounded Wil liam Jones, a colored 'man, who was mistaken for a non-union man from the Star works. He made a narrow escape from serious Injury by the ap pearance of Police Lieut. Crossan, who came to his rescue. Before Crossan could 1 secure additional aid he was almost overwhelmed by the large crowd that had gathered. The prompt arrival of a large force of of ficers probably saved Jones from se rious injury, as the mob appeared a desperate one and many demands were made that he be strung up. During the parade most of the pickets were away from the Star mills and the company succeeded in secur ing several new men. Of the lot that arrived In Pittsburg early yesterday morning it, was said that a good many of them were for the Dcmmler plant nt McKeesport. The Lindsny-Mctutcheon plant in Allegheny did not start up yesterday, and the management suid the . men there wanted to celebrate Labor duy. The mills will be operated as usual to-day, The Painter mills In West Carson street started up as usual, with increased forces. There was no change In the Lnwrenceville district. The failure of the Amalgamated people to cripple the Carnegie open henrlh plant at Duiiiesne yesterday morning Is looked upon by the steel officials us the death blow of the strike in the Carnegb mills at least. Sunday night the strike managers at McKeesport announced that a march would be made yesterday morning to Duquesne and predicted confidently that the men would not go to work and that the entire plant .would be tied up. Yesterday morning no pa- raders appeared, the men went to work and the plnnt Is in operation as usual. It is more than probable that this latest failure at Duquesne will have the effect of making the strike malingers withdraw nil efforts in that direction, While there Is visible Indication that the National Tube company in tends starting Its plant nt McKees port in the near future, the foremen In the mill say that the entire plant will be in operuti.m next week. A force of men was put to work yesterday dismantling the plant of the McKay chain works. The com- pnnv has erected u much Inrger plant at McKee's Hocks and will abandon the Lawreneevlllc plnnt. Strikers were notified yesterday that the new plant would open in three weeks and those who wanted to return at the old wages could do so. CHARGED WITH LESE MAJESTE Uov.

Judge Jef ferson Ward und Clerk William Hen derson, of the Indian court at Spiro, I. r, have been arrested at the in stigation of (lov. (I. W.

The outgoing officials give up the keys, but de clined to deliver the books and pa pers to their successors.

DEPARUENT REFUSES 1 HEARING The Declilon Uphold Wood' Entry and Saji Hit Selection of the Form of lroet Wa Blf ht Under the Provlilon of the Homestoad Law. Washington, Aug. 31. In the con test case of J. L. Calvert against James B. Woods, coming from the Lawton, Ok, land district, and . in volving entry No. 1, the acting sec-' iciHi v ui me interior oas rendered a decision refusing to order a hearing on the case. The charges upon which the contest was founded were substantially that Woods' entry, was msde in violation of the homestead law by reason of its location -on the south line-of ' the town of ..Lawton. and that the entry embraces 'a tract a mile long and only a quarter pf a mile wide, and was so taken .for speculative purposes and . not for agricultural purposes, and that the entry was made at a .time when there were a large numoer or townslte set tlers on the land who occupied it for trade and business purposes. The decision holds that the selec tion and entry of land adjacent to the town of Lawton was not in vio lation of the letter or spirit of the law and that the fact that there may have been alleged townslte settlers on the land at the time he mnde bis entry does not affect Woods' right of entry. The land was not subject to -appropriation for townslte pur poses, nor was any person author ized to enter upon It or occupy !t for purposes of trade or business, and no such occupancy could operate to defeat his right to enter. It Is fur ther held In the opinion that Woods' entry is not bad on account of the form of the tract embraced; that 'he special provisions of the act of May 2, 1890, do not control In this matter, but that the general provisions qf the homestead law do. The secretary says that under the act of June 6,1 1000, making provision for the dispo sition of these lands. It is directed thnt they shall be disposed Of under the general provisions of the home stead and townslte laws of 'he rnlteil States and that under this lnw Woods' location Is valid. THE TRENTON DISASTER. Almost a Certainty Thnt Twenty Elgin Person Perished by the Kiploslun on the Steamer. Philadelphia, Aug. 31. It is now reasonably certain that at least 28 persons perished us a result of the explosion of one of the boilers of the steamer City of Trenton on the Dela ware river on Wednesday afternoon. This conclusion is reached by the police authorities through the fact that 17 persons, who are reported by their relatives and friends to have been on the steamer1, have not yet been found. These missing persons, with 11 bodies already recovered, make a total of 28. Ten persons are still in a serious condition as a result of the disaster, of whom four are in a critical condition and may die. Two bodies were recovered from the river yesterday. Up to a late hour last night they had not been identified. The city and federal boiler in spectors are rigidly pursuing their investigation, though the exploded boiler was blown clean out of the vessel into the middle of the river. The owners of the steamer have con sented to raise and place it at the disposal of the authorities. The wrecked vessel was floated yesterday and towed down the river to the Neafiet Levy shipyard, where a more minute inspection of the interior of the steamer will be made. HOWISON'S DENIAL, Tha Admiral Say fle Did Not Comment Adversely Schley Schley's Lawyer DISMUeaed with the Statement. Washington, Aug. 31. Acting Sec retary Hackett has made public a let ter received from Admiral Howison, dated Yonkers, N. Y, August 24, de nying the authenticity of the inter view attributed to him in which is made a' comment adversely on Ad miral Schley. The acting secretary has, therefore, continued Admiral Howison as a member of the Schley court of inquiry, leaving the court Itself to determine any further ques tion as to his competency. Admiral Schley's counsel, howertr, Is entirely dissatisfied with the posi tion of Admiral Howison as disclosed In his letter. The lawyers hold that it is not a comprehensive denial nf the statements attributed to Admiral Howison, nor, they say, does it dis close sufficiently the admiral's free dom from bias.

New York, Aug. 31, Uradstreet's sajrs: A further improvement in com advices, confidence in the eurly end ing of the Bteel strike, a further ad vance in cotton due, however, to crop deterioration us much as to the better tone of dry goods trade and last, but not leust, the advent of cooler weather, are unitedly responsi ble for a still further enlargement of general trade distribution at nearly all markets and a perceptibly better and more cheerful tone of businesa generally. The air of patient serenity with which the iron and steel trades view the strike situation is significant of the confidence growing that the end of the strike is in sight, Leaving out this matter, the trade is in good shape and consumption is large. Fin ished products, such as hoops, tubes, sheets and tin plates, are still bring-, ing high premiums. Structural ma terial, plate and bar mills have or ders for months ahead. Wire is scarce at Chicago, owing to the Jollet shut down. Wheat, including flour, exports for the week aggregate 6,607,611 bushels, as against 6,606,080 last week and 3, 248,313 this week last year.
