STEEL WORKERS DEFY POLICE Hundreds of Armed Guards, Barbed Wire, and Search lights Protect the Mills. BOTH SIDES ARE CONFIDENT. Meetings Are Broken Up at McKees port, North Clairton and Glassport. Sheriff Forbids Public Gatherings. Pittsburgh.—Clashes between Penn sylvania state police and crowds bent on holding labor mass meetings in the Pittsburgh district ushered in the strike in the iron and steel industry. The most serious disturbance occurred at North Clairton, 20 miles from Pitts burgh, where the state troopers charg ed a crowd of union men holding a mass meeting and broke it up. Resist ance was offered, and it is charged by union leaders that the mounted police men used their clubs vigorously and injured a number in the crowd. Nineteen men were arrested, includ ing two American Federation of Labor organizers, Joe Etchison, who works among the foreigners, and P. H. Bro gan, an old mill hand. They were re fused bail and held for hearing later. The meeting was broken up at the re quest of the local authorities. According to eyewitnesses the meet ing was proceeding quietly when the state police appeared. The crowd scattered, and some ran up a railroad embankment and threw stones and oth er missiles at the troopers. During the melee several in the crowd were struck on the head by die policemen, it was said. The crowd soon scattered, and as far as can be learned no one was seriously injured. During the melee the horse of one of the troopers suf fered a broken leg. It is alleged that several shots were fired by some one in the crowd. Some of the blast furnaces of the Carnegie Steel Company are located at Clairton. Secretary Foster sent a telegram to Governor Sproul protesting “unwar ranted attacks” by the state police on the strength of the clashes between members of the constabulary and iron and steel workers and sympathizers at North Clairton and McKeesport. The telegram follows: “At North Clairton while officials of the American Federation of Labor were holding a meeting of steel work ers at a place especially designated for this purpose by the borough offi cials a detachment of state constabu lary suddenly appeared on the scene and began riding down and clubbing the helpless and innocent bystanders in murderous fashion. Many were se riously injured and many others were thrown in jail. Similar events trans pired at McKeesport at a meeting held on onr own property. We protest against these outrages and appeal to you to restrain the state constabulary from these unwarranted attacks.” There was a slight disturbance at McKeesport, where union organizers attempted to hold a mass meeting in defiance of proclamation of Mayor George Lysle forbidding public gather ings. More than 2,500 steel workers and sympathizers were gathered near the southern limits of the city when a squad of McKeesport police dispersed them, driving the crowd into Glass port, an adjoining borough. When the crowd again began to as semble in Glassport the local police ap peared and ordered the meeting dis persed. The crowd refused to moYe and a detachment of mounted state po lice appeared and, with drawn clubs, broke up the meeting. No one was injured. Two aliens were arrested for refusing to obey the orders of the po lice to “move on.” After dispersing the Glassport meet ing the state police returned to Mc- Keesport and patrolled the streets. Crowds were dispersed without diffi culty. , ***** *l * . * * n WORLD'S OIL CONTROL $> * SOUGHT BY BRITISH. *| * m Loudon. —Mackay Edgar, head tr, of Sperling & Co., expresses the V, opinion that England will con trol world’s oil market in a few I? years—indeed, will be sending oil to America. | Writing in the current issue of Sperling's Journal, Mr. Edgar *£ says America is rapidly running S through her stores of domestic 9? *? oil and is obliged to look about I? for future reserves.

BREAK OVER FRONTIER Withdraws Ambassador at The Hague, and Holland Recalls Envoy from Brussels. London. —An official wireless dis patch from Berlin says that the Bel gian ambassador at The Hague having been withdrawn, the Dutch arbassador at Brussels also has been withdrawn. Mercier Not Astonished at Break. Baltimore, Md.—When Cardinal Mercier was informed at Cardinal Gib bons’ residence of the reported sever ance of diplomatic relations between Belgium and Holland, lie said: “I knew there were difficulties, but had not reason to suppose a rupture was imminent.” Others in his party did not seem sur prised over the news. Francois Dessain, the cardinal’s secretary, who speaks for him on mat ters requiring exhaustive explanations, and who is a military as well is an economic expert, explained the trouble between the two nations, which he described as military and commercial, involving posession of that portion of the province of Limburg extending as far north as the northernmost bounda ry line of Belgium and the domination of the south bank of the Scheldt river, west of Antwerp, as an insurance against Dutch blockades in time of war, or against trade agression in time of peace. . “Germany is recuperating,” Cardinal Mercier said. “And,” put in M. Dessain, “should she he allowed to reconstruct her strength. Belgium may well expect an other invasion—unless we insure our selves by fortifying the frontier facing Dutch Limburg. This we are unable to do. because our guns would lie trained on neutral (Dutch) territory. Belgium should have put in a stronger claim at the Peace Conference for safety measures on the east boundary, but unfortunately, Belgium’s vote was very weak at the session.” Asked whether Belgium expected war, neither Cardinal Mercier nor his secretary would deny its possibility. “Many Belgians would welcome it,” M. Dessain volunteered. Several times recently there have been reports that diplomatic relations between Belgium and Holland were badly strained. \ WORLD NEWS IN \ CONDENSED FORM * NEW YORK.—It is reported that banking clerks in Wall street are form ing a union.

Pay $450,000,000 in gold as repa ration for damages. Renounce the treaties of Brsst-Li tovsk and Bucharest. The treaty of peace between the allied and associated powers and Bul garia was presented to the Bulgarian mission at the French foreign office. After the delegates had assembled Georges Clemenceau, president of the Peace Conference, spoke briefly in opening the resion. He was followed by General Theodoroff, head of the Bulgarian mission. M. Theodoroff spoke for fifteen min utes, pleading that the Bulgarian pt -i --ple were not responsible for the war, hut that the Bulgarian government had thrown the country into the struggle. He realized, however, lie said, that the people must share the responsibility. “They are wiling to do so,” lie said, "but feel that in no way have they committed such a crime as will com pel them to accept servitude.” Kiug Ferdinand and Vasell Radosla voff, Bulgarian foreign minister in 1914, were blamed for Bulgaria’s entry into the war by M. Theodoroff. He said the Bulgarian people did not ap prove of the German alliance, which, he declared, “came to them as a cataclysm,” but they realized they must accept part of the responsibility! “We have committed faults,” he said, “and we shall bear their con sequences within the bounds of equity, but there is a punishment no crime can justify, and that is servitude.” Each of the twenty-seven govern ments participating in the conference, including Rumania, was present. Frank L. Polk, head of the United States delegation, sat on M. Clemenceau’s right and Sir Eyre Crowe, the new British plenipotentiary to the Peace Conference, sat on the president’s left. The Bulgarian delegates, M. Theodo roff, M. Ganeff, M. Sakessof, M. Stam builiwsky and M. Harzoff, entered after the other delegates, who rose when the enemy representatives appeared. The Bulgarians showed courteous con fidence in their demeanor. The delivery of the treaty was marked by little ceremony. Led by Gen. Theodoroff the Bulgarians entered the foreign office, their dark visages show ing not a trace of emotion, contrasting sharply with the pale, drawn coun tenances displayed by the German plenipotentiaries at the Versailles cere mony and with Dr. Renner’s almost jovial appearance on the occasion of the Austrian treaty signature at St. Germain. They were ushered into the large dining room where the plenary sessions of the Peace Conference formerly were held —a departure from the course adopted with the German and Austrian delegations, which were not allowed to come to Paris. The Bulgarians have been in Paris since July 25 and have been living in the beautiful Chateau de Madrid, in the Bois de Bologne. They have been allowed grat freedom of movement and have frequently been seen promenad ing the street in the warm sunshine. Last Sunday two of them were seen apparently deeply interested in watch ing the running of the Omnibus Stakes from a vantage point outside the Long champs race track. SEX IS NO HANDICAP.

London. The Italian government has appealed to the allied powers to send an allied force, exclusive of Ital ians. to drive d’Annunzlo out of Fiume, according to a report current here which is considered reliable. It is understood that the American naval authorities here, who control the operations in the Adriatic, have declin ed any assistance whatsoever xiending the final decision from Washington or by the peace delegates in Paris. The Italian government, it is report ed, has pointed out in its appeal that it would be difficult for Italy to handle the situation in view of d’Annunzio’s popularity with the Italian people, and also because of the fact that the Fiume decision lias been a thorn in the side of the Italians. It is understood that the Italian gov ernment declared that it deplored the situation and did not wish to take the slightest action against the decision of the peace conference, but pointedly in ferred that if d'Annunzio’s hold tin Flume was to be weakened it must be done by other than Italian troops. The Associated Press learns that, even should the appeal he favorably received, no American troops are avail able to respond to it, and, pending in structions from high authority, Ameri can naval vessels would stay outside the three mile limit. American navy headquarters here, which is in direct communication with Adriatic ports, has no confirmation of the report from Rome that American marines have been landed at Buccari, near Fiume. Naval authorities here are not inclined to credit the report, there being no reason that they know of for the United States to interfere. The fact that an American ship is in the harbor of Finnic is of no s!g:'’fi cauce, in the opinion of naval officers. At attempt hy Jugoslav forces to land on tiie Dalmatian coast is report ed in official dispatches reaching here. The landing was frustrated by the Ital ian naval and military authorities. Pershing to Wed Aide's Widow.
