PITTSBURG Aug 11 Jhc efforts of
the strikers to cripple the Carnegie lon
er mill apparently met with more succes3
At noon today ten cmplojes -went
out and at least fixe of them were ex
pert men Tonight a good many of the
evening shift promised the crowd of strik
ers before the gates not to go to work
but walked down a side street and en
tered the mill the back way
Later in the evenlag a meeting was
held in the hall of the American Mechan
ics who route d out the strikers as it
was their lodge night Then the meeting
adjourned to a barber shop A lot of
men took the Amalgamated Association
nbllgation and the reporters were told
that they were emplojes of the lower un
ion mil If this be true the mill will
hardly operate in full tomorrow But un
til then the truth or falsity of the claim
that ICO men now belong to the mill lodge
will not be known
At C oclock this morning the da shift
will go on and from it the Amalgamated
Association claims its recruits The A mor
tem Sheet Steel Company today an-
unce d that it had decided to dismantle
remote another mill the Chartiers
e et Steel plant in Carnegie ten miles
from Pittsburg The mill emplojs 400
skilled and unskilled men who are idle
on account of the strike The mill will
probablj go to the Kiskiminetas Valley
where the Deuces Wood mill of McKces
port is to be taken
The strikers were very Jubilant tonight
Lewis T Brown the general superintend
ent of the Carnegie lower mill admitted
that twelve of the regular men hid iuit
but said that he hid filled their places
and the mill was running as usaal
At Wellsville the Amalgamated men are
going to work on street improvements
and through the aid of the pottery oper
atives union Amalgamated men are rill
ing the places of laborers in the potter
ies Recently contractors engaged in rail
road and county work needed laborers
and secured manj men who belonged to
the Amalgamated Association
Several hundred bojs struck at the tube
works In McKeesport today and seem to
hae crippled operations there throwing
the tube workers -out of work but this
sfike was against the wish of the Amal
gamated Association The union had
stated that it preferred the tube workers
to remain at work so that they may make
as much money as possible before the
inevitable shutdown that must come when
the tube workers are out of material
Hence the strikers sought to Induce the
buttweld boys not to go out
XrW YORK Aug 13 -Ralph M Eas
lc Secretar of the National Civic Fed
eration still hopes that there is a possi
bility of bringing about a meeting le
tween Gompers and some of the olllcials
of the United States Steel Corporation
with a -view to arbitrating the strike
Now that all the building trades and
many other labor organizations here have
pledged themselves to support the strik
ers financially and otherwise the New-
York unions are now as arioas to have
the strike settled as the strikers them
selves Mcst of the New York unions
were talking arbitration today
WELISV1LLE Ohio Aug IS -George

Plate Mill and the four men who with
him started for Cleveland but were
mobbed in Nles and were locked up in
the Jail for safekeeping arrived here to
day He and his companions hired a
team and were driven to Lisbon There
thej w ere met bj a crowd of striktrs
who cheered the party and escorted It
home
The management of the Welisville Sheet

strikers Todaj ten turns were run two

BOY STRIKERS A PROBLEM
Lender Find It llnril lei Kern Them
In Order
McKEESPORT Pa Aug 13 The
rlrike of the bojs this morning in the
butt weld department of the lube works
has given the strikers a serious problem
to wrestle with John Bannon one of
the leaders of the strikers Jaid this even
ing the officers at the head of the move
ment greatly regret the walk out of the
tube works bojs as they are difhcult to
Veep under control
An effort Is being made to organize
them and keep them off the streets by
holding plenty of meetings for their ben
efit but the bojs do not take kindly to
the idea They want some excitement
and It was with difficulty that they were
kept back today from going Into the mills
to drive out the men jet at work
All day long several hundred of the
youngsters stood along Gould alley front
ing on the lap weld department of the
works and jelled at those who were
working inside The tube company ap
pealed to the major to have the disturb
ers disperse but the major refused on
the ground that cheering and j clling does
not constitute a breach of the p aee and
that the bojs congregated on streets
only
The feeling between the major and
corporation Is growing more bitter and It
was pointed out that although the major
refuses police to guard the mills the
chief of police Patrick is con
stantlj with the major since he began to
receive threatening letters
At noon a crowd of a cpuplc of thou
sand strikers gathered at the gates of
the tube works and booted the workers
as came out to luncheon The crowd
remained around until the day turn went
off and the night turn went on an en
deavored to dissuade the men from ioing
to the mill
Twelve of the furnaces In the lap weM
department are In operation tonight but
the butt weld department Is idle

NORFOLK Vn Aug 13 Somew here
about the hour of noon tomorrow J
Eli sen Chairman of the Democratic
party of the State of Virginia will call
to order in Armory Hall a State conven
tion of that This day and date
promise to be long remembered not onlj
by the delegates who will be present to
gether with the visitors but also by the
State at large by reason of the Import
ance of the matters to be disposed of by
the convention
Of course the nomination or State offi
cers is to a certain extent a feature
but because of the fact that some of these
officers have been decided upon
hv the vote of the people In sending their
delegates to the convention this will be
of secondary consideration Ihe
questions of prime issue will be those
which will come up before the Committee
on Resolutions for initial consideration
Tlds means the platform of the State
partj the de clsion of the referendum
clause nbout which so much has been
written the general primarj plan the
election of United States Senators the
people and the fellow -servants bill
The Is already the host of a large
majority of the delegates to the conven
tion both large and small They came
prepared to talk as well as to act and as
to the former they are fulfilling expecta
tions to the limit Almost man of
the 1100 or IM now In the city who
will be present at the convention tomor
row has to some extent at least a
scheme up his sleeve by which he will
nominate his candidate But for each
scheme there is another until nt this
moment there Is no absolute of
Just what In the nature of deals will be
consummated
It is a settled fact that no deal will be
made without the sanction of the friends
of Montague The red fox will cer
tainly control the convention so his
friends sav and they do not propose to
nllovv an j thing to happen which will In
the slightest degree militate agalnt the
favorite Not that IJiey fear anything of
the kind happening for believe and
their belief is founded upon the present
situation that the Norfolk convention
will to a certain ext3nt be like the Roan
oke convention of four jears ago but one
real candidate for Governor the other
places on the ticket to be filled after
a fight
At one time it appeared as if Judge
Robertson would be a figurehead
in the fight for Attorney General but de
velopments of today seemed to bring him
forward quite For exam
ple a month ago his name was men
tioned in the nature of a dark horse It
was or seemed to be understood at that
time that Senator Jeffries had almost a
walk over for the place but when the
name of Major Anderson was brought
forward there was a change In the situa
tion Finally the contest for the secur
ing of delegates grew warm and warmer
and then it was that Judge Robertson
became a factor In the fight Ills friends
had decided hopes and after several con
sultations with leaders of other candi
dates here today these hopes became
much stronger
As In days of jorc the of
the State promlsts to cut some figure in
the nominations Tor example Senator
Jeffries and Senator Willard are both
from the Eighth Congressional district of
the State The latter is receiving the
hearty support of the friends of Monta
gue and for that reason is confident of
winning jet when the friends of Senator
Jeffries met and considered it advisable
to make n light to hive the contest for
the generalship settled before
that for the lieutenant governorship It
was in the nature of throwing a bomb
shell in the camp of the other candidate
from the same district
It was pretty well believed with how
much truth it is impossible now to tell
that the State vould not stand for the
selection of two of Its principal oiheers
from the same section There is but one
countj w hlch separates the home of Sen
ator Willard from that of Senator Jef
fries both being in the northeastern part
of the State and with the tidewater sec
tion asking for recognition It would seem
manifestly- unfair to no attention to
it and give all the favors somewhere
else
Now the supporters of both candidates
from the Eighth district recognize this
and arc inclined to realize that one or the
other must lose Just how far this In
clination will be borne out by the facts
cannot now be state d with any material
degree of but to saj the least
thej will not take any chances The
Willard supporters hive precedent and
ability to support their contention that
the ticket should be filled up in the reg
ular order Of course this will make the
fight Senator Jeffries harder than It
might have been hut it Is stated that
shoud his friends after a conference de
cide that it would not be advisable to
make struggle to have the attorney
generalship settled first will ex
pect some support from the Montague
forces
In this connection it Is stated that the
delegates from Culpeper County will not
vote as a whole for Jeffries there being
two or three delegates who will oppose
him but asjthe same is true of the posi
tion of other counties on the same ques
tion this may not mean anj thing to the
hurt of the senator
In view- of these facts the strength of
Judge Robertson now appears not as a
dark hosc buj rather as a compromise
candidate It is stated In the lobbies that
he is cloer to Montague thin iny
other candidate for the general
ship
It is said also that should Willard be
named as the Lieutenant Governor Jef
fries will not have a brilliant chince for
the third place on the ticket and tint
this then being true Judge Robertson
can belt Major Anderson Of course this
statement I- only given for what It Is
worth as the supporters of Jeffries are
jet confident that he will win Ills badges
are to say th least more numeiously
worn than th iso of any other candidate
for the same oPlce and this imj or may
not mean anything There may he a most
Interesting struggle on the lloor of the
convention to have the third place on the
ticket filled before the second Should
this he done It Is the general opinion th it
Jeffries will win otherwise he will hive a
bird fight
Mr Montague did not arrive here until
the middle of the d ty but his apartments
were open from early morning with his
brother in charge
Another qjestion which was largelj
discussed among the delegates today was
that of embracing national issues in the
conventions platform Senator Barks
dale of Halifax who will be temporary
chairman of the convention is epeictetl
in the course of his speech to maleo some
pointed remarks on free silver and the
policy of the Republican

WANT VEST TO CONTINUE
Stroiif OppeNltlin to III Retirement
rrom the Jennie
ST LOlIS Aug 13 At the
erate reunion in Springfield last week the
question of the proposed retirement of
Senator George Graham Vest from the
political arena wair discussed and
it was there determined that strong
t
sure should be brought to bear to Induce
the Senator to consent to re eiectlon
Those who nre urging the election of
Senator Vest rs his own successor saj
that thej are not animated by hostllitj
to ex Governor Stone or other candidates
for the toga They urge simply that
the Senators achievements for the State
and his piestlge In the Senate should en
title him to continuance in his seat as
long as he retains his powers of mind
and body
It would take ten j cars said one of
the Vest adherents nt Springfield last
week for a new man In the Senate how
ever capable to attain to the place In
the upper branch of Congress which Vest
now holds undisputed
What has been said of Vests prestige
applies equally to Senator Cockrell who
Is now considering the question whether
he will retire at the end of his term
A number of Democrats In Missouri
will never be satisfied with having either
Vest or Cockrell put aside until they arc
relieved of their duties by death or ab
solute phjslcal Incapacity
None of the prominent politicians of
the Stte has become openly Identified
with the Vest movement but it is said
to have reached a stage where It has at
tracted the attention pf the managers of J
the State Senatorial campaign
Afier the sentiment of Democrats
throughout the State has been ascertain

Department Suit IlrouRrht Annlnnt
Him by Pearson Hie Boer General
NEW ORLEANS Aug 13 Arthur Van
sittart British Consul at thl3 who
Is charged with having denounced the
press and the American people apropos
of the Mechanician explosion was noti
fied today that the Department or State
might give his case some attention to see
if his hostility to the American Govern
ment and people did not render him a
persona non grata Mr Vanslttart de
nied the language attributed to him and
said
It is perfectly absurd j ou know I
could not have said such a thing 1 have
had these things happen so often that
are getting to be a nuisance Do
jou blame me for being bluff and some
times Impolite- to reporters when go
away and put such things in my mouth
as these words It Is a shame you know
to take advantage of a man when jou
know that his high official position for
bids him from writing a denial
I know- that I have a lot of enemies
here I do not know who are but
I krow that I have them and I know
that they are trjlng in every way to se
cure removal but the evidence of
the confidence of my Government in me is
the fact that I am still here Three
jears ago jou know they tried the same
game and it failed miserably This
scheme will fall to the ground in the
same I have to put my word
against that of a reporter and the de
partment at Washington will believe me
know where I came from and I do
not know where the reporters come from
and that is all there Is to It you know
But it is getting to be a nuisance to make
these explanations and can j ou blame me
if I get gruff at times
All that I will have to do about this
matter Is to say that I did not say it
and I know that the of State
will take my word against that of any
reporter I can laugh at tho reporters
when they try to put me In a hole like
this because I know that they cannot
do It j ou know
I think that the whole thing arises
from the fact that I treated a reporter
rather discourteously the other morning
The Consul seemed to be much
worked up over the Interview and said
repeatedly that he could not possibly hav e
uttered such words as were ascribed to
him but during the conversation he once
or twice touched on the political situa
tion and he did not seem to believe from
the tone of his expressions that the
American people were helping him sup
press the Boers quite as much ns he
thought he had a reason to expect
The matter it is said will not be al
lowed to rest When Vanslttart during
the Spanish war made uncomplimentary
and even hostile remarks about the Amer
ican people he got out of the difficulty
bj denjlng the remarks and placing his
word against that of the reporter who In
terviewed him This time however Ir
ritated by the Mechanician explosion he
became more excited and made the same
remarks against America and the Ameri
cans as those objected to Several re
porters separately and away from each
other Interviewee him and are all
willing to make affidavit as to his lan
guage
It has also come out today that even
In the transaction of consular business he
has frequently- treated his visitors to ti
rades against the American people and
a number of business men are willing to
testify to that effect The entire mat
ter will probably be laid before United
States Senator Foster with the request
that he call it to the attention of the
department and ask for Vanslttarts re
moval
General Pearson the Boer agent here
through his attornej s Messrs Clegg
Qulntro has determined to bring suit
against Vanslttart for K0000 The action
is the result of the statements made by
Mr Vanslttart to the chief of police when
the Consul demanded to know why Gen
eral Pearson had not been arrested in
conne ctlon with the blowing up of the
Mechanician with the result that detec
tives wero detailed to follow the Boer
officer Several bjstanders heard the
statements made by Mr Vanslttart and
forwarded them to General Pearson wno
consulted his lawjer and decided upon
prompt and vigorous measures
General Pearson was Indignant
over the suggestion of the British Consul
that he Pearson was instrumental In
trjlng to blow up the Mechanician and
announced his intention of making the
Consul produce evidence he had for
so foul a charge General Pearson has
been anxious to get the Brltlsh Boer case
before the courts here in some waj and
has brought several suits to be
thrown out of court on the ground that
his complaints were matters to be set
tled the State Dcpirtment not the
courts The present suit Is a personal
one and cannot be thrown out on anj
diplomatlc grounds
The Mechanician has been repaired and
will leave tomorrow but with a
short crew of muleteers She will be dock
ed and thoroughly repaired In England
after this trip to Africa In the mean
while the other British mule transport

muleteers mutined and are now in Jail at

and even assaulted because he protested
agiinst the treutment of the men Dr
Stulb saj s that much of the food was

result of the wretched foeid was a serious
outbreak of Dr Stulb denies
that there was any mutiny aboard the
vessel the men however refuseel to work

put in irons for this and imprisoned at

On the trip back to New Orleans Dr
