paient facts In the status of the stilko
today was the deteimlnatlon of the

this time all but one of tho mills of
this company are union nnd are Idle
from the sttlke.
The sltatlon of the American Tin
riate company Is well undei stood. All
of the mills of that company urn
working under union rules excepting
the Monessen. The story told of this
mill Is that under the ngrement made
at the time It was seemed by tho
trust, the management of the plant
was to be left In tho hands of tho
former officials for n period of live
years. This was done In order to
wove the value of the patent meth

This plant Is still tunning as non

been discharged fioni the plant for

Allegheny, of the IlamburR-Anieil-cati
line, which 111 lived today, re
ported that she was held In the har
bor ol CaitaKcii, Colombia, mid Abel
Munlllo was seized bv the Colom
bian nuthoiltles and taken fiom the
ship. Mm rlllo claimed to be on
tltleel to the protection of the Ger
man Una. It did not receive con
sldoiatlon by the Colombian authori
ties'. The steamship was forcibly de
tained for elRhteen hours. Jlurrlllo
Is said to be secretin y of (leneial
Cilbe-Crlbe. He went to Colombia,
It Is leported, with a paspport given
by the tepiesentatlve of the Colom
bian government at Washington,
stating that his mission was a peace
lul one.
According to signed statcmenti
made by three of the Allegheny's
lassengcis. Murlllo left the United
States about four months ago on a
pawspoit signed by the Colombian
minster In Washington, when on his
anlval at Ka vanilla,! he was ar
lested and taken to Bogota, vvhero
he was released on the understand
ing that he would sail on the first
vessel for the United States. This
Jlurlllo did, boarding the Alleghany
at Savanlll.i,
Murlllo Feared Arrest.
He repressed fenrvt t.iat be would lies
ai rested nt Cartagena nnd when the
vessel arilved at that poit, lui refused
to go ashote, when wotd was biought
that the gov ei nor wanted to see him.
Ills airest followed The statement Is
made by the passengers that Captain
I.owe. of the Allegheny, protested
against the anest, sajlng It was
against Intel national law, and at the
fame time the captain told the mate
to put the (lei man Hag on the gangwVy
so that the Colombian ofllcers vvcyild
hesitate to tiead on It If they took
.M111III0. The at 1 est did not take place
at this time nnd the polite wlthdiew
on tho captain's piotest. Liter, how
ever, the ship's cleat ance papers weie
icfused and the statement was made
that they would not be tuinished until
Muilllo was .suirtndeted A signed
stntement comemlng the Incident then
says: "The captain then went on land
anil after awhile, i etui tied with more
poller men and we then thought that
ho was going to give up the ptlsoner
In exchange for bis papets. The po
lice went' up to Murrlllo and taking
Horn him that "dirty lib.' as they
called the Hag of Kalner Wilhelm,
took the pilsoner fiom tho ship." This
statement Is signed by Kdwaid J.
White, a Hiltlsh subject; Alma Van
Don Hogaetrle, a Helglan, and Charles
K. Tope, a clti.en of the United States.
Neither the olllceis of the Allegheny
nor olllclals of the line would make
any statement concerning the anest
of .Munlllo.
Aituni Ie liilgaicl, Colombian con
sul In this ilt. said today that he hod
not bend nfllclally of the anest of
Muiilllo. He said, hovvevet, that he
undei stood that I'llbe-Urlhe had again
become active, and, when It was learned
that Munlllo. who was Uilbe-Uribe's
secietat), was falling on the Alloghenv,
