Twelve hundred men at Irondulo mills , n few miles south of this city , went on a strike this morning. Mr. Jarrol ) , president of the Amalgamated Association of Iron workers , is expected to arrive to day from the vast for consultation with the men and manufacturers. ST. Louis , Juno 1. A lack of har mony among the employers and the men on the question of wages has caused the shutting down of the La clcdo rolling mill , Helabackor forge and Harrison wire works. All throe closed this morning. The Nut and Boll Co.'s works in East St. Louis have also stopped for trio present. CINCINNATI , 0. , June 1. All. but two iron mills in this noiuhborhood shut down this morning , the men re fusing to work. Twelve hundred men are ouc of work , which will probabiy necessitate the closing of establish ments dependent on the mills for a supply of iron. SPRINCI KIELU , 111. , Juno 1. At 6 o'clock this evening fires wore put out in the rolling mills here , the men go ing out and , locking up the doors. Up to noon the proprietors believed the strike would not occur , if at all , before the Ijxh. Over 900 men are thrown out J employment and neither opara < ti flfnor employers have any idea "ynon work will bo resumed. Every- is orderly n ' J rolling'mill in" this city'is idle to-day , / all having refused to sign the scale i presented by the Amalgamated asso- n ciation. The outlook indicates a long < \ strike. I James Ward , proprietor of one ot the mills , signed the scale this after- 4 j LENGTH 01' A ttsburg dispatch (30th ( ) to The Philadelphia Press says : The only interesting feature of the iron , situa tion is the question of the length of the struggle which is certain to coni- tnpnce on Thursday morning. Work will prjbably bo continued in the steel establishments , but private tele gram * received to-djy contain assur ances that in Pittsburg nnd through out /ho / entire west work -vill bo sus pended in the rolling mills. Thodespo rate measures decided upon the Amal ganuted association have added new complicatioiii to the situationand man ufacturers who before had resolved to Zct on the defensive now openly favor /in / aggressive movement. Said one of the most prominent to-day : "If this atato of olfaira keeps on , I shall bo in favor of reducing the basis of the aca'o to 2 conta instead of 2 , aa is the case at present. The latter figure is too high and should have been changed long ago. As to the present situation , the iron men of this district are show ing a moro determined and united front than ever before , and it is impossible to state how long the period of inac tion which will begin on the 1st of Juno will last. " WHAT VKEHIDENT JARRKTT HOl'ES. President Jarrott , of the Amalga mated association , said : "I endorse word of Swank in his state- nts of the condition' of the iron fcsk j " , and admitted tliat the best clement of the association had been overruled by the hot-heads. Ho thinks the strike will not bo of long duration , and is phinly hopeful that after a month or two of idleness the members of the Amalgamated will BOO the injustice of their demand , and recede - [ cede from the stand taken. Manu facturers state that this ia the only [ thing that will end the trouble , They ire prepared to ahut down their mills ? or a year. If the length of former determined itruggles may be taken as & criterion , hey will likely have an opportunity 0 wait that length of time. 1 Business men expect a long struggle , ad on every hand there are evidences t preparation. One representative f an eastern jobbing establishment 'tated ' to-day that he usually sold ' 15,000 worth of goods every tune ho iflitod this city , but during last week is aales amounted to only $150 , ONE OPERATOR GIVES IN. At a I > o hour to-night the general iliccra fthe \ Amalgamated aseooia- on vmfi notified that Whitakor & Jf the Orescent iron works , ? oung , had signed the scale. This . .i manufactures sheet iron exclu yoly , anil employs 300 men. The jrkmon consider the break very sig- Gcant , but the few manufacturers tie could bo seen say that it will tvo no effect on the situation. CAUSE OF THE STRIKE , BOTH HIDES OK TUB CASE , . Louis Itepubllcan , May 80. The Btnke of the iron workers last wr lasted from Juno until October , lirjng which time the proprietors in- I aisled that their employes should con tinuo work at PitUburg prices. At the end of this strike the men resumed - sumod work at prices they obtained when they ceased"work. When they went to work again at the end of the strike in question , they agreed to con tinuo their labor until Juno , -882 , under an agreement entered into in Cincinnati , Tno Cincinnati agree ment between manufacturers and workmen , it is claimed , bound St. Louis workmen , as St. Ljuis work men at that time belonged to the snmo district-tho third district. This allegation is drniod , however , by the St. Louis workmen , * who claim that they were not represented in Cincinnati at the time the agrcoraonl was niado. The Cincinnati agroemonl reads as follows : AGREEMENT. CINCINNATI , p. , Oct. 20 , 1881. The following is the agreement on- torcd into this day bptwnon the pro prietors of rolling mills in Cincinnati and vicinity , und the workmen in con fcronco for that purpose : ' We , the proprietors of the rolling mills in Cincinnati and vicinity , agree to pay the prices ruling herb immedi ately prior to Juno first ( Ij , 1831 , for skilled labor , until June 1 , 1882 ; tmc from then forever after the pricof bhall bo the same OBJ ' may bo adopted in Pittsburg , Pa. In the oyont of no prices being fixed as the Pittsbmt ? and vicinity scale of wages on Juno 1 , 1882 , the men hero are to continuo work at the scales in force hero prior to .Juno 1 , 1881 , and when a ecilo of wages bo agreed upon at Pittsburg , said scale of wages shall bo the wagon dcalo for Cincinnati and vicinity. ' ' It is ngreod that where scrap and cinder fix is used in boiling , fifty cento per ton shall bo paid for boiling in ad- tion to the price established where cold or patent ere fix is used. It is also agreed that the proprie tors , in consecration of the work men having accepted the i'ittaburg scale of wages us above specified , the proprietors nil furnish all the labor as furnished by Pittsburg proprietors to men working ; at rolls , furnaces or other skilled work. We oflrtify the above to bo correct. L. M. Dayton , Charles Avery , 0. J. Tranter , John G. Lewis. J. L. P/au , Soc. , G.Sumera , jr.Sec. , Special Com. Special Com.

P. S. Prices paid by mills in St. Louis and vicinity have always boon the same as tho/o paid by mills in Cincinnati , to which district they bo long. Since tht > Cincinnati agreement was signed , it is claimed , Sf. Louis work men have worked under it for several mouths. A DIVISION , however , has taken place under the Ampgamatod ! union's direction which has placed the St. Louis branch of the society in the fifth district The object of this change was to give the S/- Louis division a vice president in this vicinity in order that misunderstand ing in the local lodges of the union might be settled with less traublo and uxponso. Prior to this arrangement the St. Louis committee found it necessary to visit Cincinnati whenever they desired to present a question for arbitration ; whereas at ttio present time , und the' revised order of things , they can now have their mis understandings adjusted at HolloVillo bv their now vice president , Mr. White. The manufacturers say the men have work d under the Cincinnati agreement for some time to their own advantage , yet they are determined to strike for the simple reason that the Pittsburo ; workmen have struck , PitUburg workmen demand an advance of 50 cents per ton , and St. Louis workmen place themselves in the field demanding 50 cents advance en the ton aboyo Pittsburg. The workers who make this demand fortify them selves by advancing arguments. THEY AtLEOH that the coal they use is inferior to Pitteburg coal. The former fuel , they claim , burns to an ash , while the latter leaves in its wako cinders that must bo picked from grates by great labor , The Laclodo mills are preparing to shut down , and will take their invnl. untary holiday with a large stock of finished material on hand. In fact , according to the statement made by those high in authority at the Laclodo mills , they shut down thoroughly prepared - pared to moot the demands that are likely to bo made upon them for six months to come. While the proprie tors claim they are in bettor shape than they ever were in the past to combat a prolonged strike , the work men say that their powers of endur ance will enable them to stay out a year , as they have a sinking fund of 8150,000 or $100,000. During the first two weeks they are out the men will receive no assistance whatever , but after that time they will bo ac corded by the national union $4 a week , individually. In the west there are about 10,000 iron workers and in the east as many more. This being the case the $160,000 is not as great a sinking fund for an emergency as might bo supposed by those not fa miliar with the vastneas of the army of pensioners that will demand their allowance of § 4 per week WHILE THEY ARE OUT. It has been ascertained that the large mill at Wheeling , W. Va. , will not join the strike , aa the demands of the employes have boon acceded to by the mill operators , This mill makes light ; alioct iron , whioli happens to bo in great demand at present. For this reason , rather than bo forced from the market , the Wheeling mills will continue operations , while its other competitors remain inactive. The Lnclcdo mills manufacture Trails , all kinds of ban , railroad spikes , street car rails of various patorna , boiler iron , light sheet iron , etc. Besides the articles enumerated above , the mills turn out castings for their own uio and for outside customers. The Laclcdo mills employ 020 men , nearly half of whom have families * relying upon them for support. About the only mills m the vicinity of St. Louis that will not join the strike are the Holt and Iron company's mill of East St. Louis and the Stcol works at C.T rondolot. The mills that WILL CKASE OPERATIONS are the Laclodo , the Harrison wire mills on Choutoau avenue , the Grauito rolling mills , Holmbachor a forgo and rolling mills and McDonald Brothers' forgo and axle works. The Liclcdo mill has worked its stocks off in raw material thoroughly , and is well prepared pared for a lock-out of many mouths , but Bomo of the other mills will feel the blow mnro seriously. Of course , it is generally admitted that manufactured iron will advance in the market during the strike , while raw material will decline.- Said a prominent mill owner to n Republican reporter yesterday : "Wo are willing to pay Pittsburg prices , but no moro , for the reason that wo cannot afford to permit ourselves to bo handicapped by eastern manufac turers , At present wo can compote with eastern manufacturers , but the moment wo are compelled to pay more for labor than Pittsburg pays , that moment wo will find our selves handicapped. At the pros ( . nt time the mills of S Louis supply Utah , California and many of the territories with iron , which will bo supplied by Pittsburg and eastern manufactories in general , if the cost of production is increased in St. Louis. No , we can't afford it. This fight is a fight ter existence with ui. The moment it costs moro to produca iron in a manufactured shape in St. Louts than it does in Pittaburjr and Cincinnati , that moment the iron works of St. Louis will begin to de cline. Fully sixty men in ono of the largo mills of St. Louis are making from $4 to § 25 per day and only work nine hours a day. Notwithstanding this they insist upon an advance. Wo are doing all wo can for these men , and they are standing in their own light by doing cyirything in their power to retard the growth of the manufacturing it1 tores ta of the west. " Last fall business waH brisk , but on the first of January , 1SS2 , IT BEGAN TO ( JET DULL. Business full uway because railroads stopped their construction work or track systems and made an effort to ' 'claim the work of iron workers in St. Louis is more laborious than elsewhere is con cerned , it can bo said , unofficially and officially at the same time , that St. Louis mill owners deny that such is the case inasmuch as most of the fur naces used at the Laclodo and other mills are gas and air furnaces , in winch little or no coal is consumed. The furnaces in question are the most modern in existence , being what are known as the regenerative gas fur naces. THE OTHER SIDE. A puddler in high authority and skilled , bos this to say : "Thoy want CO cents on a ton moro for boiling and 10 per cent , in the finishing depart ment department over the Pittsbur ? mills. They claim that it is moro difficult to work , on account of the inferior western coal which they are required to handle. Pittsburgh coal , they maintain , is both hotter and easier to work with than any other fuel they have been called upon to handle. The western iron , they al lege , is harder , and the firca less in tense than in other soctionB. Hence their demands. " In addition to facts already stated the workingmen claim that St. Louis manfactorios in shipping their iron tea a western and "profitable market" are much moro accommodating to their purchasers than Cincinnati and Pitts- burg. St. Louis ships , they claim , principally to Utah , California , Ari zona , etc. Inasmuch as St. Louis manufacturers have always paid 60 cents moro per ton for manufactured iron than Pittsburg , the men claim the advance to-day simply because Pittabarg has increased her demands 50 cents on a ton. The demand of the St. Louis mill employes appears to bo arbitrary , yet they deny that such Is the case. THE DK.ALKUH. Dealers in manufactured iron as well as the raw material have their word to say , The dealers who have manufactured goods are jubilant , as they maintain the stiiko will cause their property to advance. The "raw material" men , on the other hand , are trembling , as they know their stock will take a tumble. Bomo political economists who have boon maintain ing that the country has been afliictod with an over-production of metallic property will , of courae , maintain that the strike will bo a blessing , as it will give the country an opportunity to readjust itself on the labor question , That is to say , it will teach men to sock profitable sources of employment , casting away those that depend upon dictations from extraneous and unnat ural influences.

A BLOODY STRIKE. Pour Non-Union Iron Workers Fa tally Doaton. National Associated 1'rem. CHICAGO , Juno 1. A terrible riot occurred this evening at Brighton Park , five miles scvth of this city , where the iron works of the Joliet Iron and Stool company are located. The company has been employing men from Joliet , This evening while Jfi workmen were on the train proceed ing homo , about 100 strikers rushed aboard the train armed with pistols , knives , clubs and strips of iron , and commenced a murderous attack upon all passongera. Judiro Pittsburg , ot Pontiac , was shot through the hip and dangerously wounded , Four colored non-union men were terribly and fatally beaten , and many passengers badly wovnded. Judge Pittsburg is judge of the second district appellate court , and was a passenger on the Chicago & Al ton train proceeding homo at P mtiao. Ho is universally respected , and the rioters certainly could have no spite against him , but the hundred infuri ated norkora belonging to the union rushed madly through the carashooting right and loft , and clubbing every body or slashing thorn with knives All the passengers worn more or leas wounded , but none fatally , except Judge Pittsbun ; and the four colored non-union iron workers. Judge Pitts burg was brought to this city , and physicians probed unsuccessfully for the ball which lodged in the illium. Subsequently the judge was convoyed on the midnight train to his homo in a very critical condition. The four colored men who wore so terribly beaten wore also taken to their homes at Joliet on the same train , and will probably dio. It Booms the object of the rioters waa to intimidate the scabs who had taken the places of strikers at the mills. When the evening train first stopped at Brighton Park station , several rioters boarded the cars , and with pistols intimidated the engineer to hold the train until the murderous work was accomplished , A largo force of police repaired to the econo later , ana at midnjght had arrested Boveral of the rioters . Eye-witnesses state the attack of the rioters was so sudden and savage that the wildest confusion provailnd among the passengers. The hundred rioters dashed into the smoking-car and' coaches , yelling like demons , an'd brandishing pintola , bowie- knives , crow bars , clubs and all sir Is of. weapons.
