WAS DONE FOR EFFECT Sh.-'oi Stol Company Cuts Prices to Frighten CVrtain Independents. PRESIDENT SHAFFER'S VIEW OF IT. AsspR'niPiifg to He Levied Upon Amalgamated Iron and Steel Woikers Status ol the Great Strike. the Pittsburg. July 2. The second day of the btrike of the sheet steel and steel hoop workers of the Amalga mated Association was without Inter esting or exciting features. As Presi dent Shaffer remarked, the conditions of the present strike were peculiar, and no decided results were expected for 10 days or two weeks. By that time the manufacturers having all necessary repairs at their mills com pleted, would be anxious to resume operations. The struggle would then begin In earnest. The belief is quite general, however, that the real test will not come until the close of the hot weather and .the general resumption of business In the eaily fall, and In the meantime it is thought that the conflicting Interests will see their way clear to recede from the present position. That President Shaffer of the Amalgamated Associa tion is preparing for the rainy day which may come If the strike Is pro longed Indefinitely, Is evidenced fioin the circular mailed to the association lodges. The circular directs the lodges to lay assessments upon their mem bers, the money to be used for the re lief of such members of the associa tion as might be out of work. The money collected by these assessments of the lodges will be forwarded to Pittsburg, where it will be placed In the general fund of the association. Outside the combine plants there is little apprehension over the situation. A number of independent companies have expressed a willingness to grant the demands of the men. The announcement that the sbct company had cut prices occasioned surprise, as It Is known that all the mills have been busy and many or ders remained unfilled. The heaviest cut is on No 28, the standard guage, which is reduced from $3.35 per 100 pounds to $3.10. The lighter guages have been cut in price from $10 to $3 a ton. The move puzzled the Amala mated officials, and President Shaffer said: "It has been done merely for the purpose of having an effect upon the independent sheet manufacturers who have signed our scale." The advisory board of the Amalga mated association has not yet been called to consider the situation, but a meeting will be held soon If the Amer ican Sheet company shows no disposi tion to reopen negotiations. Presi dent Shaffer says the call for a con ference will not come from the Amal gamated association, as the ultimatum of that organization was given at the last conference. Cash Register Strike. Dayton, O., July 2. In conformity with the agreement reached in Wash ington Monday, many of the machin ists of the National Cash Register company leturned to work.

The pay for 10 hours is understood to have entered In 'he agreement. It is not denied that some of the union mold ers have also returned to their places. The National Cash Register company has now adjusted almost every diffi culty with the possible exception of the carpenters and woodworkers. Reading Strike Over. Reading. Pa., July 2.
