PITTSBURG, July 17.?"Get busy I and discover a plan to meet the win- dow glass making.'machine on Its onward course or get out-of the business," Is in a nutshell the word that . Is being passed down the line to the window glass workers, by their offl- ' ! *$. " $v:That there Is cause for alarm' Is shown by the fact that during the last lire, 132 machines, each one of which 1 displaces 10 hand workmen, produced ' 1,000,000 50-foot boxes, or almost onehnlf nt tho antira winrinw fflaas oat put of the country. Every machine in nee in this coun- ' try la operated by the American Window Glass Company. The company employs no member of the militant union of window glass workers, the f Amalgamated Association, with headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio. All the ' men in this union are employed by the independent or hand-operating manu faeturers... Conflict In both production and prices, therefore, has been the ruie for I some time between the machine and | handoperatlng producers. Up until the last two fires the Independent manufacturers have - had the best of the battle, due to the tact that while the machine would produce the smaller sizes satisfactorily; it wMjAJttjjjfcrtij: b weak [i ill nil Hi lis i iafl.11 'i i n.. 1 ni[l n douBut all is different now. lAfter many experiments, the machine has been perfected and all sizes are produced s in good quality. The result was, last v year, that the machine-made product b was the dominating factor in the mar- e ket. The workers were, therefore, t hit both coming and going. Displaced f by the machine their glass, made in I independent factories, was thrown a aside for the product of the Iron man. Hence the ukase from their leaders, t A LONG WALK | MAN OF EIGHTY-FIVE ON ROAD 3 FROM BALTIMORE TO CON- ? NELL8VILLE A-FOOT. h h CUMBERLAND. Md?

PABKBRSBTJRG, July 17.?After a conference of sereral hours last night wlfh^ President C. B. Power, of the Yeat Penn hue ball league and Tom Haymond, manager of the Fairmont team; Manager Herman Krull, of the Parkerabnrg Professionals, said he could not announce that the deal to get Parkerabnrg Into the league had been closed, but he would say that the plans are likely to be consummated within, a week. President Power thinks Parkersburg should be a winner, and soya he would rather hare It In the league than a aozen lowns iikb somerset, m., wmon Is,to be dropped. He and Haymond arrived from Fairmont early last evening and departed after midnight They were met at the Chancellor by Mauager Krull, Captain. Poland and several others. President Power waa very enthusiastic over the proposltloa The president said he would be greatly pleased, to have Parkersburg join the league, and that he wou.d give this city a franchise free of charge. The other cities In the league have jjaid considerable for their franchise, but this Is the Becond season of this summer fft; the West Penn and: the teams are willing to let Parkersburg try It without cost The only drawback now is to find a suitable th'e'proper party, however, and expects a definite anBwer to-night. At a meeting of the members of th< local ball team the members agreed to go Into the league on a percentage basis. If the team makes any money they will get an equal share. If It loses they are out the same as the manager nd others to be connected -with the team. , It the team joins the league it will play as many games away from home as at home and will play here every | Sunday. Sundy ball it not permitted In Pennsylvania, but It goes in this State, and as & result President Power will fix the schedule so that Parkersburg will play at home every Sunday. Visiting teams are assured or $40, or they can take 40 per cent, of the gate receipts. They pay their own expenses at all times. To make any money it Is absolutely necessary that a team get good support at home, and It is thought the Parkersburg team would likely have the biggest crowds in the league. On Sunday the crowds should Dot be less than a couple of thousand, snd it so the local team could afford to play to some small crowds away Erom home. Only two games have been played by each team in the league, and 1L Parkersburg can get started in a week it will be able to fill the schedule which s for almost 56 games and will Insure local base ball until late in September.
