PACKERS' STRIKE IS OFF AND iBITRfIS
SOUTH ST. PAUL MEN
HEAR THE GOOD NEWS
President Donnelly Sends Word
of Settlement at Close of
Dull Day
The strike is off, and the men will
return to work in the South St. Paul
stock yards Friday morning.
The South St. Paul strikers last
evening received the news that the
questions causing the walk-out had
been submitted to arbitration with the
greatest enthusiasm, and the official
announcement from the national offi
cers in Chicago was awaited with the
greatest eagerness.
When the first announcement was
made it was received with some doubt,
the strikers apparently fearing that
the news was not correct. With con
firmation the tired pickets took on new
life and discussed the situation in an
animated manner. Nine days of strik
ing had somewhat exhausted the men,
many of whom had, during the entire
time, been on picket duty on an aver
age of sixteen hours out of each twen
ty-four.
The large number of pickets gath
ered about the headquarters could not
( suppress their elation, and with a glad
cry they sent the news of the settle
ment to the non-union men in the
plant, most of whom spend the even
ing hours sitting on the fence sur
rounding the buildings.
Being in doubt as to the nature of
the settlement in detail, the men on
the inside wondered whether they were
being sacrificed, but the strikers did
not worry. They held that Swift &
Co. need all the non-union men now
employed and all the strikers also, and
in the flush of success many of the
union members expressed the belief
that the men who had accepted work
•would be permitted to become mem
bers of the union and retain their po
sitions.
News Pleases All Parties
The news of the settlement was also
gladly received by the officials of
Swift & Co., and by Gen. M. D. Flower,
president of the Stock Yards company,
who joined with the officials of the
union in expressing the greatest satis
faction with the end of a strike that
apparently threatened to be tedious
and long fought. Not one of the men
mentioned had any idea that there was
any definite prospect of a settlement
so soon.
Without exception the officials of the
company and of the union said that
they would abide by the agreement
made in Chicago, and that the South
St. Paul men will return to their places
at the same time as do the Chicago
men. The union men were loud in
their piaises of the masterful manner
in which President Donnelly had con
ducted the strike, and the company
officials said that, as the grievance
really existed in Chicago, and that
there had been no feeling in the mat
ter in South St. Paul, they would not
feel in the least embarrassed in tak
ing back the men who walked out
Tuesday of last week.
"The announcement that the strike
is settled is the most welcome news
that has come to me in many months,"
paid President George Willis, "and you
can rest assured that so far as the
members of the South St. Paul union
are concerned they will carry out the
agreement made in Chicago to the let
ter. The pickets will be removed from
around the plant as soon as orders to
this effect are received from President
Donnelly. As the strike was ordered
from Chicago and has been settled
there, the South St. Paul union mem
bers will not return to work until or
dered to do so by the authority that
ordered the walkout"
Mr. Steep More Than Pleased
"I am more than pleased," «aid
Business Agent George Steep, "for the
crucial time in the conduct of the
strike had arrived, and I feared that
there would be some difficulty in con
trolling the men. When I first re
ceived news that the strike is off I was
out making a personal roundup of the
pickets, and was inducing them to give
up their clubs. It has been my expe
rience that after the first week of a
strike it requires the greatest care on
the part of the officers of the union to
preserve order, and on this line I have
been busy for the past two days.
"In my opinion the South St. Paul
men will not return to work before
Friday morning. «r They are tired from
long hours of picket duty, besides
which it will be necessary to hold a
meeting of the union tomorrow and
officially declare the strike at an end.
When the men go back it will be in a
body, and not a few at a time. The
men have been warned that their con-*
duct from the time of the receipt of
the news of the settlement until they
go to work will count for or against
them, as with the signing of the agree
ment, as I understand it. they virtual
ly become employes of Swift & Co.
and are subject to the rules of the
concern."
"It will be a pleasure to again have
a full force of men," said J. S. Bangs,
manager of the Swift plant, "and cer»
tainfy I am pleased that a settlement
has been affected. The South St. Paul
men had no grievance, but were strik
ing to uphold the stand taken in Chi
cago, and therefore the workmen can
be restored to their former places with

One of the Few Pleasing Sights in South St. Paul During the Strike
a complete absence of feeling preju
dicial to them. Labor troubles are a
great menace to business, a strike par
ticularly affecting the productive pos
sibilities of a plant of the size of the
one at South St. Paul, and it will bfc
a great relief to have the old men re
turn and have them take up the du
ties they so well understand.
Will Abide by Chicago Agreement
"Of course we shall abide by what
ever agreement was made in Chicago
and will live up to its provisions. It
is doubtful if, for a few days, we can
put all the men to work, as the receipt
of stock has been light since the strike
and will doubtless continue so, to~~som&
extent, for a few days after the official
announcement of the settlement, but
the old men will be given employment
as fast as the receipt of live stock will
justify."
"The past week has been a strenu
ous one," said M. D. Flower, president
of the Union Stock Yards company,
"and it is a satisfaction to know cer
tainly that the difficulty between the
men and the strikers has been adjusted,
and that business at South St. Paul
will be allowed to assume its former
volume. With the strike settled I
would like to advise all stockmen that
we will buy all live stock at the high
est market price, and that particularly
choice butcher cattle are needed. Such
stock will command a good price, in
my opinion, and there could not be a
better time to ship."
The last day of the strike at South
St. Paul was the most quiet of the
nine in which the men and the com
pany contended for mastery, the block
ade 'inving- been raised according to
the order of National President Michael
Donnelly.
Entrance Was Not Blocked
At no time in the day was the en
trance to the plant blocked, although
pickets were constantly maintained
and an effort made to induce persons
desiring to enter the plant in search of
work to forego such intention. In all
but about fifteen cases the arguments
were successful, the workmen being
induced to seek other employment.
The picket system, as usual extended
around the works, and at the end of
the day, and before the news of the
settlement had arrived, the union offi
cers expressed their satisfaction with
the outcome of the first day without a
blockade, and promised that the prac
tice would not be renewed. An addi
tional telegram was received from
President Donnelly, in which he reit
erated his former command that the
laws of the state be obeyed.
The signed statement of Judge C. C.
Doss reflecting on Mayor Lytle com
manded much attention and was one
of the principal topics of conversation.
Judge Doss stood by his assertions and
reiterated that the statement contained
his opinions of the mayor and that he
would under no circumstances retract.
Mayor Lytle denied a rumor generally
circulated that he intended to have
Judge Doss arrested on the charge of
criminal libel, but that it was possible
that he might seek legal satisfaction
from the judge after the settlement of
the strike, and gave out a statement in
reply to that made by Doss. Mayor
Lytle said:
Gives Doss the Retort Courteous
"Replying to the statement of C. C.
Doss concerning my conduct and re
specting me personally, I will say
"My conduct during the strike was
vindicated on the very day on which
Doss' charges were published. Since
the walkout I have contended at all
times that complete order would be re
stored unless arbitrary action was
taken by the authorities before the men
had come to the conclusion that they
had no right to blockade the street.
The piping of Doss cannot take from
me the credit of having correctly sized
up the situation and acting in a man
ner that caused the crisis to be passed
without serious trouble. If a hot-head,
like the judge would have us believe
that he is, had been in charge there
would have been a riot that might
have resulted in the loss of life."
Business Agent George Steep, for the
union, said that the demand of Presi
dent Donnelly that the blockade be
raised at once and not again be put
in force will be carried out in the fu
ture. He further said:
"Of course the members of the union
will bow to the demand of the presi
dent, and there will be no further
blockading. The outcome of the first
day without a blockade has proven so
satisfactory that no effort will be made
to restore the practice, and in fact
there is no desire on the part of the
men to have the condition restored.
"To our minds it was proven that the
claims of the officials of the company
that there are a great many men ready
to go to work was not well founded,
and we contend that not more than
eight new men took advantage of the
free entrance to the plant. More than
this number came with the intention of
going to work 4 but when we showed
them our average earnings for the
three months before the strike they
were willing to go in search of other
work."
Company's Officers Surprised
The officers of the company were
evidently surprised upon their arrival
to find that the blockade had been
abolished and that entrance to the
plant was not blocked. They went in
without being stopped by the strikers
standing about.
When John Weir, who has been 1
member of the union, started along the
street entering the gates he was ap
proached by a cumber of the strikers
THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. THURSDAY, JULY 21, 1904
and was urged to forego his determina
tion to go to work. In the quarrel that
ensued the epithet of "scab" was ap
plied to Weir, following whch, it is
claimed, that he struck Michael
O'Brien, one of the strikers. Weir was
arrested and taken to the police sta
tion. Supt. Burns gave $25 bail to
guarantee Weir's appearance for trial.
Thomas Lawler, one of the strikers,
appeared at the court room window
while arrangements were being made
for Weir's release, and pushing his
head through the window called out:
"What's the matter with making that
man give bail. I have not seen the col
or of his money, and he is no better
than any other man."
"Keep still, the court is in session,"
cautioned Chief of Police McCormick.
"I won't keep still," persisted Law
ler. "That hungry-looking guy should
be compelled to put up the money."
"Arrest that man," commanded the
judge.
Whereupon Lawler bolted down the
street. Chief McCormick went to the
door, but did not pursue Lawler.
Engineer Shows Sympathy
A Great Western switch engineer
demonstrated his sympathy for the
strikers in a decided manner. A cou
ple of boxes of meat, to be taken to
St. Paul Park, were put on the engine
according to a custom. While the en
gine was in the yards the engineer de
liberately kicked the boxes from his
engine, and they were taken back to
the depot. The engineer was cheered
by the strikers, but went about his
business without comment and refused
to -give his name.
Al Haynes, the man accused of hav
ing called for a rope with which to
hang Charles Fitch, was-dismissed by
Judge Doss, Mr. Fitch declining to
prosecute, and Wenzel Nechville,
charged with assaulting a non-union
man, was taken to Hastings for trial
by Sheriff Grisim, who made the ar
rest.
The evening was spent by the men in
celebrating, and it would have been
difficult to find in the country a hap
pier set of workmen. Without excep
tion they expressed themselves as anx
ious to return to their old places with
out delay, it being the unanimous dec
laration that doing picket duty is
harder work than that required in the
packing plant.
It was admitted by some of the men
that as the days dragged by without a
settlement they had become somewhat
doubtful as to the outcome. Several of
the men asserted that they made up
their minds to seek other employment,
it being impossible to find one who
would admit that he contemplated re
turning to work before an agreement
had been reached.
A dummy dressed to represent a
non-union man was carted about the
streets by the happy unionists, who,
although they indulged in considerable
hilariousness, were orderly. The pick
ets remained on duty throughout the
night, and a number of men left the
Swift plant. As these passed by they
were closely scrutinized by the pickets.
The union men declared that fully half
of the non-union men will have de
serted their posts by morning, prefer
ring to leave their employment to fac
ing the union men when they return.
Doss Has Striker Arrested
Thomas Lawler, one of the strikers
at South St. Paul, went to the office
of Judge C. C. Doss, of the municipal
court, last evening, and owing to the
trouble that the men had previously a
quarrel at once ensued.
Doss claims that Lawler threatened
to strike, and Lawler is very sure that
the judge drew a revolver and said
that he would shoot. The judge exer
cised his authority and called upon
Patrolman Robinson to place Lawler
under arrest. The officer did as di
rected, and Lawler was turned over to
his father, Patrick Lawler, the city
jailer, who was compelled to put his
son in a cell.
The incident aroused much feeling
and it is said that Lawler will today
secure from County Attorney O'Keefc
a warrant for the arrest of Judge
Doss. It is claimed by the friends of
Mayor Lytle that an -effort will be
mads to oust Judge Doss from office
in consequence of the attack made on
Lytle by Judge Doss.
Mayor Lytle was in St. Paul last
night, returning from White Bear
when informed that the strike had
been settled, and started at once for
South St. Paul, saying that he desired
to see the people and have them recog
nize at last that he had acted wisely
in pursuing a conservative course in
refusing to run the risk o$ creating a
Gov. Van-Sant heard the first news
of the settlement of the strike from a
Globe reporter.
"It gives me more pleasure than
anyone can understand to learn that
the strike has been settled," he said
"It is certainly the best news that
could be heard, and I am more than
glad that there was no violence worth
mentioning at South St. Paul on the
part of the strikers. It is certainly a
fine termination.of what looked like a
most serious struggle between the men
and the managers of the packing
plants. I trust that the negotiations
will come to a successful termination
and that work will be immediately re
sumed at South St. Paul. The settle
ment of the strike will be a great re.
lief to many men not directly inter
ested in" its outcome, for it jeopardized
interests which everybody wants to sei*
prosper, for on them depends largely
the prosperity of the country."
