The general officers of the American

hut It was stated thete today that
President W. K Corey, who Is also ex
etutlve head of tho National Steel
company, had nothing to say concern
ing thp plans of the companies in
meeting the difficulties of the strike,
nor ns to what conditions tho mills'
were In wheio non-union nien had
Joined the forces of the strikers. The
policy of tho nianufactuiers, It Is said,
Is to remain aulet for a time and await
developments. The otllclals of the
Ameilcan Tlnplate company are all In
New York and the company's side of
the trouble was not obtainable heie.
At the dlsttlct ofllceH of the Ameikan
Bheet Steel company a meeting of
managers was held today, it was a
closely guai ried meeting and Infoinin..
tlon was hard to secure. It was said,
however, that the reports fiom the
managers refened to the condition of
affairs In the non-union plants of the
company. It was claimed that tho men
In the old Meadow mill In Hcottdule
would not go out on strlko. The Scott
dale Iron and Steel mill Is also woik
Ing and no signs of a strike aio visible
there. The attempt on tho part of the
association to attaik tho forces In the
big Vandergrlft mills In Vandei grift,
Ta., was not lrgarded seriously, though
the company Is wntchlng closely alt
such movements.
When Piesldent Shaffer was Inform
ed of tho granting of thotidvnnco to
thf Mfoespoit Tube workers he said:
'I anticipated such notion on the
part of the manufai turers and have
wamod our mon to guard against being

ods The tube men In McKoespoit nre
tinoigiiiilzed and this advance coming
with tho beginning of the strlko of the

that tho steel corporation appreciates
tho strength of the Amalgamated as
sociation and Is trjlng to thwart Its

have boon adopted In McICeespmt I
export that similar advances will bo
given to tho men In other woiks of the
I'nltod States ooi potation that have
not been affected by tho stilke oider,
In the hope that the workers may re

extend the strlsV to nil thp plants of
tho corpointlon."
Surprises of Strike
In addition to tho very general, and
In some lnstnnces rather unexpected,
compliance to the strike order, the
Amalgamated association tonight has
added two mote mills to Its list, both
of which weio claimed today b the
companies to be bevond the reach of
organbatlon. VMien the William Clarke
Sons' company's mill at Thirty-fifth
Ft! cot, which opoiatod all day non
union, came to shift tho turns tonight,
none of tho skilled men lepoited for
dittv and tho plmt had to close down.
Later the following was received con
tenting the mill lonslderod by the
manufacturers unext optionally lojal
"Moonosson. Pa -Thp' Moenesscn steel

a meeting tonight to elect ofllecrs and

Tlio conquest of these two plans is
considered by the nwoc latlon people as
an Instance of theli strength, nnd an
