GLASS WAGE SCALE
Committees of the Blowors' and the
Manufacturers' Associations Pro
gressing' at Atlantic City.
Ily Fiiholi Wire from The Aswclitrd Prcj.
Atlantic City. X. J., July 31. The
wage committee of the National Urcen
Glass Hottle Manufactuieis associa
tion and the Oreen Ctlass Hottle Blow
cis' union today continued considera
tion of rules and regulations for the
government of factories during the
coming year Manufacture! and men
tup divided on several Important rules
principally upon the amount of wages.
Herptofoip In most factories, blowers
have recpled $40 every two weeks, the
amount of $.'0 a week being paid at
the end of the month. In some cases
employes have allowed their extra pay
to iciiuiln In the hands of the em
ployers u,ntll thp end of the blast.
Todny hloweis asked for payment
of the full amount of the earnings
pvpi.v two weeks They claim the
manufacturers have the use of their
money without paying intripst. When
the morning spssion adjourned, the
question was still under discussion,
there being opposition on thp part
of sotup of the manufacturci s.
The matter of working hours has been
settled The hlovvci endeavored to
havi. factories close at I o'clock on
Saiiitdny, Instead of 5 o'clock, hut the
emplo.vers would not make this conces
sion, and the old basis will stand.
Piesldent Hayes, of the blowers' union,
who was stung by a poisonous Insect, Is
teioveilng and attended todaj's ses
sion. Thf wage question occupied the at
tention of the ronfprence dining the en
tlie afternoon session, and was finally
ilei Ided in favor of the manufactuieis.
The existing system of payment of
wages will not be changed. Piesldent
Haves, of the Class Hloweis' union,
wns n st long advocate of a new sys
tem, his aigument being that If the
men were paid In full semi-monthly
they could Invest their cxti.i parnlngs
to bettei advantage than by leaving
their money In the hands of the eni
ploveis. The manufactuieis' cotumit
tee weie not willing to grant the de
mand of the hloweis, and the hitler
finally agreed to make no further effort
to alter the wage svolein at this time.
It has been decided that although the
tlncp delegates from the poitlon of the
Flint Class Woikers' association, vvhlth
leeently Joined the Oreen Class Hottle
Hloweis' association, may sit in the as
sociation, the. ,irc not entitled to Note
on any question that may arise.

Both Employers and Laborers Are

but few changes In the local labor
situation todav. Hoth employe! ft and

Arriving vesesls today vveie deserted

The dilveis for the Pacific Tiansfer
company werp called out today. This
will huvp a seilous eltect on tho hand

vveie also unified out. This new de
velopment may put n stop to building
opeiatlons tluoughout the city.
Hy the best Informed students of the
situation it Is deflated that the out
come of the contention Is mainly de
pendent upon the coal supply. Only one
large bunker wns in opeiatlon this
moiniug, and It Is said there Is not
enough ooal In the tlty to meet the de
mand longer than two weeks.
A scaulty of fuel will not only nip
pie the uiauutac tilling Intetesls, but
evei.v household will feel It.
Fiom leninrks diopped by some of
the fedeiatlon leaders today, It is ap
paient that the importance of prevent
ing the unloading of coal Is fully real
ized by them, nnd that special effort
will be made to keep the embargo In

of PlttsbutgeiK tonight, outside of the
Inner elide of the Amalgamated nso

consldeilnr the proposals for a settle

without ngiecment. How the nieinbcts
of the boaid feel Ii known to many on
the outside. The second day of Ihe
executive hoaid's deliberations was
notable for the many rumors In ch fil

of lesults. The absence of three of the
pilnelpnl nieinbeis of the board fiom
the sessions today gave tie to the
story that tho membois vveie divided In
their Ideas of the peace ptoposab and
that In Older to satisfy all, Secretary
Williams had been sent to New Yoik
to seek modltlcatious nt the hands of
Messrs. Morgan nnd Schwab, while As

Morgan had received 11 commission to

In bringing about an amicable ni

however, and all talk In telatlon to

day adjourned nt fi o'clock tonight
without accomplishing lt purpose.
History of tho Day.
The hlstoiy of the day follows:
It was after 11 o'clock when the
committee finally got together. Thiee
of the official, Secretary John Wil
liams, Assistant Secietary M. I Tlgho
and National Tiutee Moignn, wete
not present. It was subsequently
lentned that the three absentees vveie
out of the city and had taken their
depaitute on eaily trains. After elus
ive answeis regarding their location,
It was said they were not very far
awny and vveie expected to he present
when the board was called together
tomonovv morning. Whcie they had
gone nnd what their mission was,
could not be learned. President Shaf
fer was called to a seciet conference
with some one, supposed to be a lep
resentatlve of tho United States Steel
roi partition, (luring the early morning
hours. After the meeting began Its
formal proceedings, the discussion wast
appaiently lifeless. Much of the time
wns spent by tho nieinheis wandciiiig
about the other offices of the otgnnl.
atlon, only icturnlng to take up points
that were nppniently under dispute
At noon, the olllclnls adjoin tied for
lunch. They lemalned away until af
ter 2, o'clock and then again took up
the conference with the same uncer
tain discussions. Piesldent Shaffer
was called repeatedly to the telephono
nnd talked long and earnestly with
some one at the other end of the line.
A recess was taken at fteriuent Inter
vals and showed that much of the
meeting was devoted to tho killing of
time, during the nh-ence of the offi
cials who weie on nivsterfous mis
sions. Joseph Bishop, secietary of tho
Ohio board of aihltiatlou, was present
at the discussion today. He left tlm
headrtunrtets late In the afternoon,
without making any statement. At
4 o'clock, President Shaffer and Vice
President David Reese came down
stairs from the ofllces and stalled up
Seventh avenue. They wete halted
by the newspaper men nnd Piesldent
Shaffer said that he had noting to
say. Hint theie would be no stntement
given nut today. The two Amalga
mated association olllclnls started In
the direction of the l,nlnn station,
and the rumor nt once became cur
rent that they weie about to leave
for New York Instead, the ofllclah
made a clicultnus loute to the far
liegle building, where they hld a brief
1 (instillation with Joseph j;, Schwab
nnd Hervl Pieston. who spent most of
tho day In the Carnegie otlheii. Within
an hour, the two Amulgnniatd.itien
I etui lied to the general olllces of the
Shaflor is Silent.
Another hour was spent In the eon
fereme loom and thflii tho meeting ad
journed. When President Shnffer
enme down to go home, ho vvhh nznln
aikii( tor wile statement )lrt tll (10
condition of the conference, and tho
probability of a settlement. In reply he
'There will he no statement given out
today. I expect to call another meet
ing of the boaid tomorrow at 10
o'clock. 1 will be present at this meet
ing and will not be out of the city to
night." With this statement Piesldent
Shaffer left for a car to go to his home.
All of the other olllclnls who wete nt
the meeting during tho afternoon de
clined to talk stilke. They htitrled
away from the building to avoid meet
ing newspaper men.
About the entiattcc of tho headquar
ters building In Seventh avenue groups
of men were gatheied all nflernoon.
Some vveie membeis of the Amalga
mated association who wete on stilke
and Interested In the progress. Others
were private detectives who vv notched
every move made by Piesldent Shaffer
nnd other leaders of the Amalgamated
nssoiiiutlon seemed to be closely
watched during the entire day. Whose
lntetests vveie thus being guaided
could only be surmised, but the Amal
gamated men llrmly believe that the
vvalcheis were In the employ of the
inaiiufacttirerH. President Shaffer said
he knew of 110 reason for his move
ments being watched, but became
deeply Intciented In tho state of af
faiis when told of It.
A number of striking steel workers
ft 0111 the Plttsbuig mills of the Atneil
1111 Steel Hoop company were among
the vvntilieis about the lieadquartcrs.
One who claimed to bo among tho
oldest meinbcts of the Amalgamated
association and who ha passed
thiough no less than four great strikes
said that he hoped the stilke would
not be settled on the terms offered. He
wanted tho Issue fought to a finish
now. He said Hint there was no use
In tempo! Izing lu this matter and It
tho settlement was made now It would
only mean that It would have to be
fought nil over again nt some future
time. While tills striker spoke un
officially, he seemed well posted on the
situation and gave what appealed to
be the last evidence of the cause of the
holding up ot the .settlement at this
Confidence was felt In some elides
today that the stilke would eventually
be settled on the propositions made by
Mr. Motgau. The olucials of the steel
companies who have been acting for
the 1'nlted States Steel corporation In
this matt, r vveie apparently hopeful
and light-heat ted. The delays In the
settlement nie fully undoiptood by
the Motgan tepiesentntlves and while
all maintain the sternest silence le
gardlng the matter, they are not able
to conceal their feelings of contentment
and satisfaction over the way things
aie going. One of these olllclnls ic
marked to a ft lend today that If the
strike was not settled ho would bo
11101 e than sutptlsed.
