a Miscellaneous Charnctor.
ly F.xcluilve Wire from The Associated Press.
Pittsburg, .Inly 1!S. Tho expected did
Kit happen today. Neither nt the look
ed tor programmes fur WellsvUle or
McKcrsport wore carried out. At
WellsvUle the Importation of iiipii fail
ed to materialize and at MeKeesport
the attempt to resume at the Dowcus
Wood Tube plant was not made.
At both points It was considered by
cadi side to bo the strike centers, the
situation In statu quo, neither of the
parties to the controversy having
made any decided move. I'Yom tho
other point, DuncHiisvllle. conflicting
reports are received, and the result nt
the quiet struggle going on between
the American Steel Jloop company and
the Amalgamated association Is still
uncertain, with the company's chances
probably better for winning In the end.
Late thli afternoon the Amalgamated
association issued Its llrst strike bul
letin from the general ofllce. The bul
letin Is printed In the Amalgamated
Journal ofllce. and Is Intended to slve
the members of the organization ofll
clal news concerning the progress of
the strike. In the future It will be
is-sued on each Monday morning, and
will be followed by the regular Issue of
the Journal during the latter part ot
the week. The bulletin of today gives
an outline of the conditions prevailing,
and reproduces abstracts of President
Shaffer's lecent address at WellsvUle
and MeKeesport.
Advice to Mon.
In the most prominent part of the
bulletin Is printed the naming nerds:
"Do not drink, especially If the trust
tiles to break the stiike by Importing
non-union men. Don't hnlleve anyone
who ,,iys the mills will b clcsed for
ever, or taken out of the community If
you don't go to work." Further on are
the woids: "Theie were not enough
men In the country to run the mills
befoie the stiike, so all yon need to do
to win the strike Is.' don't work. Kit
Joy your summer shut-down. There
will be more work next winter. That
Is the time for mill work, anyhow."
Absolute denial was made by Presi
dent Shaffer of the story that n dele
gation from the JkjjindorBrlft mills of
the American Sheet company had been
in conference with him. lie said that
he had seen no one from Vandergrlft
and knew nothing of their piesenee In
Pittsburg or MeKeesport. Whatever Is
being done by the Amalgamated people
at Vandergilft Is being kept so quiet
at present that few of the general offi
cials of the organization are acquainted
with the status of affairs. There has
been no change in conditions. The hope
is still general among these oillclals,
however, that a way will he found to
bring about a settlement of the diffi
culties. What His Friends Say.
President Shaffer has never yet de
clared that there wa no possibility ot
concessions on the part of the Amalga
mated association. "When asked his
opinion on this matter today, he re
plied that ho was unable to answer the
Friends of the president who have
talked to him on this line express the
Arm belief that If tho proper steps were
taken the manufacturers would nnd the
association In a conciliatory mood and
teady to meet any reasonable proposi
tion consistent with honor. They say
the whole tone of President Shaffer's
leniarks Is Inclined toward peace, If he
can secure It honorably.
From Monosscti tonight came the
following: "There Is suppressed ex
citement hero tonight and It Is likely
that trouble of a serious nature will
result Inside of twenty-four hours.
Notwithstanding all efforts to the con
trary, tho National Tin company
workers started up full time this
morning. Superintendent Donncr hint
placed a heavy guard around the mill
and If any effort Is made to Intimi
date the workmen there certainly will
be bloodshed. 'JJhe organizers have
been able to get a few men a'way, how
ever, but l.t Is said their places were
quickly' filled. To a reporter, several
of the men said that If the tin. mill
workers came out they would have to
leave this part of the ctunry. They
cannot work at anything else, and say
that they won't joint the union. Tho
patents belong to w. H. Donncr and
ire In use in no other mill In tho coun
try." Garment Workers' Strike.

San Francisco, July '.'2. Wholesale
and retail business houses today ex
perienced great difficulty In having
their goods hauled, on account of a
strike of tho teamsters, about a hun
dred of whom have quit, and It is
thought this number will bo greatly

The employers are, It Is stated, deter
mined not to yield a point to the
strikers. If the strike shall continue,
other branches of labor will be af
fected. Porters undoubtedly will go

ever, as the company Is under contract
to pay them for tlftccn days. There
were no accessions to the ranks of the
strikers. There was no effort today to
make a settlement, though wch is not
far off and may come before the end
of the week.
Refused to Strike.
Harrlsburg, Pa., July 22. A secret
meeting of the employes of the Phila
delphia and Reading Railroad company
in Harrlsburg and vicinity was hold
last, night to consider the strike situ
ation. From what can be learned the
men refused to Join the strike, although
the sentiment among them Is snld to ho
strongly in sympathy with the striker.
Situation at Reading.
Reading Pa., July 22. The Philadel
phia and Reading raflroud shop stiike
situation In tills city remains the same
tonight. At the request of Chief ot
Police Miller, all the coal and Iron
police, (the company special force),
have been withdrawn, that the vicin
ity of the locomotive shops, excepting
a few. Tills was done, after a con
sultation with one of the Reading ofll
clals and has created a better feeling.
There nre several elements now at
work which may lead to a settlement
of the strike, if no unforeseen circum
stances arise. Superintendent of Mo
tive, Power Prince is ready to confer
with the committee representing all
the men, but the parties have not
yet gotten together. Such a confer
ence, It Is claimed, would result In a
settlement, but It will requite diplo
macy to bring It about.

Washington. July 22. Commander
Waiuwright, commandant of the Unit
ed States Naval academy, under date
of July i'0, has made the following reply
to tho navy department's) Inquiry con
cerning the use of Maclay's history:
"Having seen so much In the papers
in regard to the third volume of Mac
lay's naval history and having received
a letter from you on tho subject, 1 think
It right to put you In possession of full
knowledge of the case as it stands at
the naval academy. There has been no
proposition to adopt this third volume
as a text book or teference book by tho
academic board or any person within
my knowledge, Ihere Is no intention
hero of requiring the cadets to study
the history of such recent events as
those lu the Spanish-American war.
and their time Is too limited to require
them to study a full volume on any
one war.
"Maclay'n naval history was adopted
with the consent of the department in
ISO.", when tho Knglish course here was
extended beyond Its former limits. This
intention not to adopt tho third volume
of Maclay's history Ik entirely apart
from any consideration of Its value as
a history of the war or knowledge of
the facts and criticisms contained
thetcin. I don't know of a copy of the
third volume at the naval academy."
Boston, July --. Iteferrlng to the
discussion of Maclay's naval history,

"If the historian has taken facts

Investigation of this whole matter by

"Schley's first statements regarding
the bottle of Santiago were moderate

some time afterward were not at all

ny Exclusive Wire from The Associated Vttm.
Wllkcs-Uarre, July 22. The strike
of tho stationary firemen was
ofllclully declared off tonight at a
Joint meetings of tho strikers and
e.xoeutlvo boards of United Mine
Workers held In this city. Tho
meeting was a stormy one. Tho
committees appointed by tho Joint
conference yesterday to call on tho
coal operators and ascertain how
many of the strikers could hope for
reinstatement, reported sixteen of the
companies as being in favor of taking
back the old men and seven as re
fusing to do so. Among the latter was
tho Lehigh Valley Coal company,
which employs about tf.OOO men.
Tho Traders' Coal company, of
Wllkts-Harre, refused to reinstate Its
old firemen unless they consented to
work for decreased wages. The hoist
ing engineers who went out In sym
pathy with the firemen were also re
fused reinstatement at many of 1110
mines. The ofllcers ot the Stationary
Firemen's association made a power
ful plea for tho engineers and asked
thnt tho United Mine Workers not
consent to a settlement of tho strike
until the engineers were taken care
of. State Secretary J. A. Oerrlty, In
behalf ot the llrcmcti, said tho calling
off ot the strike under present condi
tions would be a disgrace to the
United Mine Workers.
President Kahey replied warmly for
the United Mine Workers. Ho said
If 11 mistake had been made, the blame
could not be placed on the United
Mine Workers. A resolution was then
offered, telling all strikers to report
for woik today, and If they arc re
fused by any of the companies, then
tho United Mine Workers will take up
their cause. Tho resolution was
adopted by an almost unanimous
vote. A motion to ofllclally declare
the strlko off was then passed by a
large majority.
It is thought In a day or two all
the strikers will be back In their old
places, despite the stand taken today
by some of the companies. Th? Le
high Valley company Is opposed to
taking the strikers back because it
Is allrgcd that a number ot union
firemen drove a number of non-union
workmen from work at tho Maltby
mine and compelled a suspension of
Tho firemen's strike In this part ot
tho anthracite region collapsed almost
completely yesterday, tho strikers In
nearly every case resuming work with
out waiting for news of the result of
last night's conference In Wilkcs
Barre. The Delaware. Lackawanna and
Western company succeeded In resum
ing operations at tho Cayuga and Hrls
bln mines, tho strikers returning as
agreed on Saturday to their places
with no concessions granted, Tho
company expects to be able to start
work this morning at the other two
collieries down tho valley which were
closed down as the result of the strike.
At all the Delaware and Hudson
mines In North Scrnnton the strikers
presented themselves for work yester
day morning, and operations were re
sumed at all of them except the Leg
gott's Creek, where certain repairs had
to bo made.
This company, however, did not suc
ceed tn resuming operations at any
nf Its mines further up the valley.
Work will also be resumed at tho
three collieries of the Ontario and
Western coal department which havo
been closed down since last Tuesday
as a result of tho strike, Tho tlremen
presented themselves at theso mines
for work, but it was decided not to
open them up until today.
President Mull.-hy was In tho city
for a few hours yesterday morning and
left Instructions with the local offi
cers that no men should return to work
If tho strlko was declared off nt any
initio where all were not taken back,
nnd that no man should work at any
tulno whoro any person lost his posi
tion because ho refused to take the
places of tho strikers until that person
or persons was reinstated.
It Is believed that there will be no
discrimination against the strikers In
and nround this clty.and that they will
be able to secure their positions back
In all Instances. Tho action of the
companies In taking back all strikers
who havo so far npplled is taken as
being Indicative of this.

Py Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Pittsfleld, Mass., July 22. James
Fosburgh was called today as a wit
ness for the prosecution In the trial of
his brother. Robert S. Fosburgh, for
tho murder of their sister, May Kos
burgh. Tho summons was a sudden
nnd startling one, made as It was by
District Attorney Hammond, who
heretofore had taken no part In the
examination of witnesses. Young Uos
burgh said he was awakened by a ter
rible shriek, coming apparently from
his father's room. He got out of bed,
turned on tho electric light In his room
and then rushed up the front stairs,
taurnlng on various lights as he ran.
He heard several exclamations front
above and was met at the head of the
stairs by his sister-in-law who scream
ed, "Your father's gone crazy.' He
brushed her asldo and went 9111 to his
sister May's room. She was lying on
the floor. The electric lights had been
"There was only one thing that made
an Impression on me," he said: "that
was the fact of my sister's body lying
on the floor. Something had to be
done. I saw, so I said: 'Get towels and
ammonia,' I did not wait to see If
this was done, hut Rot ready to start
for a doctor. I saw brother Robert
come Into the room behind my father.
He was staggering, and when In the
middle of tho room bo collapsed and
fell to the floor, his head resting on my
sister's body In an opnpslte direction."
AVitness then described his trip for a
doctor. Ho did not know his sister hf.d
been shot, or how she had been hurt.
He knew sho was unconscious. Said
the district attorney: "You called a
doctor, not knowing what tho matter
was, or that there was a claim that
other persons had been In the house'.'"
"Yes," replied the witness, "1 did not
know what happened until 1 returned."
In contradiction of the testimony of
a previous government witness to tho
effect that he had seen James Koshtirgh
In the house after tho murder with his
suspenders hanging down, young Kos
hurgh today swore that he had not
owned a pair of suspenders for five
Today also witnessed the production
as a witness of Dr. W. W. Schotield,
the first physician to visit the Kos
htirgh homo after the tragedy. Though
called by the government, his testi
mony was of little or no value to tho
prosecution and It apparently told in
favor of the defense. In an Interview
tonight, Lawyer H. C. Joyner, counsel
for the defense, stated that it was prs
slble that at the conclusion, of the
presentation of the government's caso
he would make a motion that the court
order a verdict of not guilty.
