The most IntPtost attaches to the
paintets' mill on tlio South Side and
to that of LlncKay A McCtitchcon, In
Allegheny. Holli mills ate (ontiolled
bv the Ameilian Sheet Hoop iompan,
anl hae bltheito been iggiesivedv
non-union, and niiiib dt ponded upon
the aitlon taken bv the men In those
plants The oinplovos of both mills
held open meetings toda and both de
cld il to stilke tomonow. The Painter
i .' employs about Ida men, and the
Lindsay & MiCimhPon mill about ."00.
I W Jenkins, manager of the Ameri
can Steel Hoop compan, said tonlRht
that he had hcaid of tho attempt to be
made to tie up tlio two mills, but he
had hea id sin h stiikc talk for seeial
months past.
Both Sidos Are Stubborn.
Mr. Jenkins .t il hnth mills would ie
ume tomonow morning ns usual. The
fiRbt at the Paintei mill is to be made
thp fight of the stilke Both slds will
make stubborn leslstmiee If the Amal
gamated people tan ( lno this mill they
believe they will haw won the Ricaler
pait of the stilke. Thp mill l not onlv
an Impoitant one. but the SIppI Hoop
company has foi yenis succeeded In
thwattlnB tho clients made to utilonle
Piesldent Shaffei was asked todav If
he had set a time when, if no settle
ment having been cfie ted, he would
extend tho stilke to - s'lhMdltiiy
steel companies of the e ' Mates
Steel coiporatlon. Ho said he h.ust de
dine to make his plans known at pips-.
It iiiav bo .'aid, however, on the
stienRth of tollable Infoimatlon, that
the stilko within Its piesont limits Is
intended meiely as a show of sttonglh.
At the (onlPieiKO last wiok the iep-
tesputathes of tho stee! (oipoiatloii
were lepeatedly warned that the asso
( lotion was muih stinnger than tl.oy
knew, They were oen told of tho 01-'
K'nilatlon of mills of which they hud
no knowledge Hut the isteel men would
not believe that tho association was as
strong us II was claimed to bo.
Thus It Is believed tho Hist puipoo
of tho assoi lation l.s to show Its
stiength by confining tho stilke to the
three companies When that show of
strength has been made, whatever It
may prove to bo, the association ex
pects the companies to ask for another
conference. If the companies show no
Inclination to makp a settlement, the
strike will be extended to thteo more
companies. If the trust will not yield
then, the stilke will be extended to
such independent companies as sell
their finished pioducts or law inateilals
to companies against which a stilke
has been decl.ued. Should the stilke
attain such piopoitlons, It would bo
likely to go still further. The Amalga
mated association and the Fedeintlon
of Labor two yeats agofouned a seciet
alliance, It Is claimed, when li was
agreed that tho association, when on
strike, could also call out the steel men
of the Kedeiatlon.
The latter has oianl?atlons in many
mills whoso workmen aie not eligible
to membership in the association,
The Conference,
In dcsrilblng the final conclusion of
the ronfpionce In tho hotel Lincoln on
Saturday, President Shaffer said that
after tho tlnal pioposltlou of the man
ufacture! s had been taken up and
from tourtesy on tho pait of the
woikers had been dHcus3cd theio was
n pilnful silence for about five min
utes The workeis waited for some
futtlior lemnik on tho pait or the
tiiaiiufiK tuieis and tho latter nppeared
ti bo watlng for a teniaik fiom the
woikois. Finally one of the mauufar
turois eoinmltteo bioko tho stillness
b, saying:
"Well. I riioss thpro is no fuithpr
uo In waiting for other developments.
Tho men have nothing to otfor and tho
manufacturei have gone as far s
they can in justice to themselves."
Prpsldpnt Shaffpr ippllod that he
accoided with this view. If tho inati
ulaituiPis had no other pioposltlon to
offer. It was useless to remain.
llaih side uioso to leave Warner
Aiiu, president of the Ameilean
Steel Hoop eompiny, said then'
"I am soi iv that our fi loudly io
latlons lu tlio past should have to be
luokPii In this way. Wo have done all
In our power to moot this trouble In an
amicable manner. With this breach
onco opened, It must be uudeistood
that tho onus Is on tho side of tho
Amalgamated association and the pub
lic will undei stand this "
While kei nlv logrcttlng the bioak In
the peaceful lelatlons between the or
Ranbiitlon and the manufacturers.
Piesldent Shaffer said that theie
sec mod no other com so to put sue. Ills
offer to the hoop company to trcon
sttuct tho scale for cotton tie mid hoop
mills, was one of the most impoitant
saciillcos that had ever been offoted
by thp association. Again, in tho offer
to exclude the tin plate mills, thp hoop
mills nnd the shept mills fiom all fur
ther dltllcultles with plants owned by
the I'nltPd States Steel corpoiatlon,
should the ngteemnt be leached on the
final proposition of the Amalgamated
association was giantlng the manu
facture! s their movt earnest wish, of
recognizing the individual responsi
bility of each of the constituent corpoi
atlous of tlic paiPtit organization
known as the I'nlted States Steel coi
poratlon It was thought that the
m.iiiufacluteis would have (illicitly ac
cepted this dual proposition. Their
refusal was a surprise to tho Amal
gamated men. Of course, this proposi
tion is not now open to the manufac
tuieis. Willis L. King, lcc chaliman
of Jones & Laiighlius, an indeppiidcnt
corporation, did not hesitate to say
when apptoached today that the In
ability of the (onfeiees to agiee was
a most unfortunate condition nnd
meant an immense less, not only to all
concerned, but to tho countiy gener
ally. No Chance for Arbitration.
"A claim for lncieascd wages on the
pait of the wotklugnien," ho said, "Is
a conipaiatlvoly easy nutter to nibl
ti ate. foi, as a ililo, both sides will
make some (omessions, butwheie thpie
Is a pilnciplp Involved, as thpro soems
to bo In this i ase, then It reaches a
point wheio aibltiation Is Impossible,
nnd elthoi one side or the other must
acknowledge defeat by surrendering.
"Mr Moigaii and associates, as I
understand It, nio not opposed to
unionism, wheiever It exists, but they
ate opposed to taking stub a step a
will neees-dtato their non-union cni
plojos joining the Amalgamated asso
ciation If In these non-union mills the
Amalgamated association has mu h a
bold as It claims, then, In m.v judg
ment, It Is a veiy easy matter and only
light that it should show Its stiength,
and if tlio majority of the oniplojes
aie in favor of mganUatlnn, possihly
it would be in a better position to go
befoio a boaid of .ubltiatloti and ask
contiol of such mill or mills, but If It
has not sinli a innjniit.v, 1 cannot spo
any justice in Its claims, Theie Is but
one phase of the tnattei which I think
can bo left to aibltiation, so long as
the piesent pilmlple I involved, and
that Is whether It Is light foi tho steel
coipoiatlon to foice Its: men Into an
oiganlatloti against their will, I think
the men nio nrblttaiy In this inattei."
Will Stand by Shaffer.
