Operators Threaten to Close V
Chicago Plants if Enough Work
men' Do 2vot Return
Chicago, Sept. 29.?The crisis in th'
GteeO! strike in the Chicago district i
expected -to come today, when an ef
fort will be made to operate the mills
at full capacity. Both'sddes were lin
ing up for the'strugle today.
Mayor Hodges of Gary issued a
proclamation that even,' worker de
siring to reiburn would get police pro
tection. A.t the same time it was an
nounced that a citizens' police force
of 600 had been organized. It was
gTveh out that the big mills were pre
pared to opei'ate on a more extensive
scale than at any other time si:
the strike.
The American Steel and Wire Com
pany at Waukegan "announced unless
the men returned in force the plar.
would be shut down for a perio.'
of six months and' no attempt would
be made to reopen it, no matter wha;
the outcome in. the strike situaticr
might he in' the meantime. Othc?
companies issned similar notices m.
nu;s the time limit.
Luxemburg. Sept. 29.?The plebis
cite hel'd yesterday resulted in a ma
jority in favor of the retention of
Grand Duchess Charlotte as ruler and
for a customs union with France.
Women, old and young, notwith
standing the heavy early morning
rain, werit to the polk and voted with
the men-. It is believed that the wo
men's vote proved the decidiinfg factor
in favor of the present ruler.' Grand
Duchess Charlotte. The clericals, who
are supporting the Grand Duchess,
paved the Way for woman suffrage
in Luxemburg.
: Chief local interest was displayed
ih the question of an economic alliance
?whether this should be between the
Grand Duchy and Belgium or France
owing to the dependence of the iron
industry on outside raw materials.
. An alliance with France was urged
on the ground that France is the only 1
i^ower able to give the coal needed
for iron industry.
