OBEY ORDER OF SHAFFER AMALGAMATED MEN WALKI4 OUT ,GENERALLY. TODAY MAY DECIDE MUCH' Conference Called By Manufacturers to Determine Upon Some Definite Cause. Pittsburg, July 15-Reports received from all sources connected with the great strike of the steel workers to day indicate that the members of the w. amalgamated .-association have mat ters well in hand and that the strike order generally has been obeyed. e Telegrams from various points where mills of the American Tin Plate company, American Steel Hoop and American -Sheet Steel companies are located told of the shutting down by these plants in large numbers. In many cases- plants had been shut down by the first strike order, which affected the sheet steel and steel hoop companies only. The' last order brought out all of the union plants of the American Tin Plate company, with the exception of the new mill at Moriessen, which is still running. The strike, although one, of the greatest that has been declared in re cent years, will affect Pittsburg but slightly. Despite the fact that this city is, and for years has been the recognized industrial' center of the world, President Shaffer's action in calling the mten of the AmericanSheet Steel, American Tin Plate and Amer ican Steel Hoop companies out on strike, will have but little bearing on the commercial life of Pittsburg. Of the 74,000 men idle, 2,500 are in Pittsburg, 800 in Allegheney, and 1,500 in McKeesport. President Shaffer has it in his power to close 1 many more- Pittsburg mills, bult it is of a radical nature until he shall be compelled to do so. The American Steel Hoop comn pany's supposedly non-union mill, known as the "PaJnter mill, in West Carson street, was .iosed this morn ing in all its branches. The tie up at this mill was said to have been a surprise to the- mill owners and of fiqials in charge of it. Another plant, kfiown as the Lindsay-& McCutcheon mill, in Allegheny, was shut down completely in the puddling and bar. mills. All skilled workmen refused to enter the mill this morning and the company did not even operate five furnaces. The finishing department of the mill was working during the day ,as the men are not in the union, but it is claimed by workers that the employes in that department will not go to work in the inorning, . The American Steel Hoop comp1any mill at Monessen was not- closed to day. It has been non-union since it was built, two years ago, and- the company says the men there will re main loyal. The Amalgamated peo ple would not discuss the situatiop in the mill. While all- the mills *of the United States Steel corporation are included in the general conflict, the three com panies are first attacked. What the iext move would be the -workers. Would not say. It is announced to night that a circular letter, which was expected to be sent out today; call ing out the men in the mills of the three companies would not be issued at present. The most interesting report to the Amalgamated association -today was aPdlspatch from New York which said that a conference of ianufaecturers was to be held in New York tomor .ow at which Warner Adams, vice president of the American Tin Plate oompany. will present a detailed ac count of. the experiences of the com itttee that met tue 4Amalgamated as sociation in this city laq '`week. It wase stated that the question of again extending the olive, branch to- the strikers or of taking up the fight and erushing the association would be'.de= termined. AT NEW -.YORK. Nothing Known Conoerning Reported ColpferenL ,of Manuf~ctIwtusr Wow Y owkv - ` u *-None of the the leading hotels had been engaged by any of the steel company officials in which to hold a conference tomor row and nothing was known about such a conference as reported from Pittsburg. A visit to the headquarters of var ious organizations of the Federation of Labor failed to elicit anything that related to thegreat strike. It was said that unless a general order was issued no action would be taken by the` labor organizations in this sec tion. THE NEW BOARDS. Names of Some of the Men Who Will Be Directors. New York, July 15-The Press to morrow will say: It developed yes terday that J. P. Morgan and company will have a representative on the Union Pacific board of directors in the person of Rosewell Miller,, chair man of the board of directors of the St. Paul, who resigned from the Union Pacific board, but who will be rein stated. The Kuehn, Harriman, Gould faction will have a representative in the Nortthern Pacific and E.- D. Adams, it is expected, will be retired in the reorganization of the manage ment of that property; but the com. 1 positionof thenewboardwillbe under the direction of J, P. Morgan, James t J. Hill and their associates. W. K Vanderbilt it is said will be' elected Northern Pacific director. MITCHELL IS CAUTIOUS Refuses to Discuss Effect of Steel Strike on Coal Miners. Kansas City, July 15-John Mitch ell, national president of the United Mine Workers of America, was ask ed today what action the coal miners would take relative, to the strike of the Amalgamated association of steel workers, which has been declared at Pittsburg. "I can tell you better what effect the steel strike will have on the coal miners,"' he replied, guardedly. "The coal and steel industries are so close ly allied that a great strike of the steel workers and the closing down of the great steel mills will very greatly lessen the consumption of coal. That will mean that many coal mines will cease operations." "Is there likely to be a sympathetic strike ordered among the coal min ers?" "I do not care to say anything about that," replied Mr.. Mitchell. "The strike of the steel workers has not assumed definite proportions. It cannot be told how far reaching it will be, even within- the order imme diately affected. I would not care to say whether or not the coal miners Will be drawn into it, or even whether such a thing has been considered." -KILLED lI LIGHTNING One Bolt Kills Two Women and a Child and Injures Two Other Children. Newcpnierstown, 0., July 15-Dur 1 ing a heavy rain astoiS this afternoon lightning struck a' straw shed dn the farm of Mrs. C.
