SHOPMEN APPEAR TO HAVE NO LACK OF FUNDS. Stoux 0ity, Aug. 16 Branding re ports that striking shopmen are tak ing other jobs in order to support their families as untrue, L. O. Ham mer, chairman of the strikers' pub licity committee, declared that no shopmen have received other em ployment, and that there was no suf fering among the strikers due to lack of funds. Labor officials declare that some crafts have dfcided to donate a day's pay a month 'to the support of ti e strikers. Mr. Hammer also declared the re port that machinists had been ship ped from the east to the west and M§froili the west to the east wasr with out foundation. Roads are filling their shop* with inexperienced labor, however, he said. Ia Sioux City practically no competent labor is being employed in the shops, he alleged. Reports of the strike situation throughout the country were read at a mass meeting of shopmen held at the Labor temple this morning Engineers and fireme i h'ld meeting Saturday evening, Mr. Ham mer declared, at which the question of a sympathetic walkout was dis cussed. However, no official report of the meeting had been reecrved by him. Efforts are being made, according to Mr. Hammer, to minimize indi vidual cases of violence o nthe part of striking shopmen. Resolutions have been passed, repudiating any activity of this nature, and where ia isolated cases violence had been practiced, the unions have given iu- structions that it is entirely ocn trary to the spirit of the walkout that these taetlcs should be em ployed.

Pierre, Aug. 16 perative that the people of South Da kota be fully advised as to the ser iousness of the coal situation, Gov ernor McMaster late today issued a Warning in which he pointed out that Information at hand showed a coal .Shortage inevitable. The governor iaid that even if the coal strike should be settled immediately there would still be use for substitute fuels for power and heating pur poses and warned the farmer to stack their grain in preparation against threatened lack of fuel and transportation. The statement said: "It is imperative that the people ttf South Dakota be fully advised as to the seriousness of the coal situa tion. There is no anthracite coal to be obtained. As to bituminous coal there should be at this time of the year approximately two million tons of coal on the docks at Duluth and a proportionate amount at other lake docks but the facts of the sit uation are there is no bituminous coal at any of the docks at the pres ent time. "During the past four months un der normal conditions the mines of the country would have produced ap proximately eight millions of tons a Week, but during this interval there have been approximately only about three and one-half millions of tons produced per week and that wholly ty the independent mines of the oast. "The independent mines are op erated at full capacity but owing to the congested conditions of rail roads operating between the inde pendent mines and the lakes, the public is not receiving the maximum benefit from this production. From the information we are able to ob tain in the event that the coal strike should be settled immediately t*iere still would be a shortage of coal and therefore I feel that it is my duty to warn the people of the serious ness of the situation advising that where substitutes for coal can be used for power or heating purposes the same should be done. "At a conference recently hell in St. Paul, North Dakota, Minneso'a, Wisconsin, Iowa and South Dakota decided to act as a unite in the is tribution of coal allotted to these northwestern states and therefore +mch coal as is allotted by the fed eral administration to the north west, South Dakota will receive its equitable share. The fact that the machinery for the distribution of coal in South Dakota is being per fected does not mean that we are to receive anywher near enough coal for all purposes. "I particularly at this time wish to advise the farmers of South Da kota who have not stacked their .grain that they should do so at once unless they have positive informa tion and assurance that their local coal dealers have on hand sNffic ient supply of coal for threshing purposes. And further it would be the part of wisdom to stack grain owing to the fact that railroad trans portation facilities may be seriously handicapped particularly in the event that railroad labor (roubles are not. speedily adjusted.' O Fail to Blow Safe at Huron Huron, Aug. 16—An unsuccessful attempt was made to blow the safe at the Standard Oil warehouse here. The job was apparently the work of amateurs who procured tools by breaking into the Great Northern tool shed and with these forced open the door of the warehouse.
