declare with apparent eonlldcnee will
make them master of the situation
anil win the strike. The steel officials,
on tlio other hand, say the strikers are
n'arly at the Hood of their siirccs and
when the ebb conies it can never be
stopped. They don't seem to be dis
turbed by tecent events, and with n
confidence equal to that of the sti liters,
talk of certainty of ultimate success.
They itsrert that popular sentiment has
lfver been behind the strike, and that
the general Interest which was oner
aroused by the contest Is quickly wan

1n that city and the tie-up Is now as
complete us possible there. Many of
the tube workers, although on strike,
have refused to Join any union and the
opinion Is expressed that there will be
soon u break among the strikers. The
leaders plan another rally for totuor
iow llicht to re-enthuse the men and
heel an btcak that may be possible.
They have asked Piesldent Shaffer to
go thete and speak, but he bus not yet
said dellnitcly thai he would. The
cngatil.ers aie working Indefiitlgably
to keep the men In line. They nie also
exleiidliu their operations to Duquesne

were held during the day.
Mr. Shaffer's Stntement.
Mr. Shaffer discussal the situation
rather freely. He said:
"The icwtilt cannot help but be far-
ranking, not only In the west, but
here as well. Accordlntr to a telegiain
from Tight received this tnoiulng, It is
not Improbable that the Milwaukee
men will go out. Mr. Tlghe Is in Mil
wattkoe today, nnd mo may hear some
thing from Hayvlew before the day
"I cannot predict what may happen
In South Chicago. I think It likely that
Tlghe will go to ChlciiRO as soon as he
pets his work finished at Milwaukee."
Mr. Snaffer was asked if ho had
heard from Vice-President Davis, of
South Chicago, elnco the western

Assistant cVcretnry Tishe. however,
rays Davis Is with him in iMIIwaukco
today. "I do not know whnt Mr. Da
via' etund is on the western situation,"
Concerning the local situation. Presi
dent Shaffer said It was unchanged to
nil outward appearances.
"The nuwH from the west will have
a Rood effect on the local situation. It

Private advices from all tlio local mills

for effect. We know by the amount of

they nre consuming and the output

attempt to get the mills going has not
President Shaffer refused to discuss
the absence of Trustee Pierce In the
cast. It Is probable he Is with the or
ganlzntlon'.t attorney, Mr. Hrennan, on
business connected with the Amalga
mated association. The sheet mill at
lluncansvllle, who have hitherto re
fused to Join the strike, are still ob
jects of concern to Mr. Pierce and lie
Is likely making another effort to have
them Join t!i" Amalgamated associa
tion forces. For some reason the Am
algamated headquarters have again
been tightly closed, locked doors bar
the entrance of even mall carriers and
messengers. The object of this move
as explained by Secretary Williams Is
merely to allow the oflleers to catch
up with the enormous amount of busi
ness which has accumulated since the
general strike order went Into effect.
The Amalgamated officials hint at an
other surprise In the way of closing
mills In the local district.
"I receive reports from every mill In
the country dally." President Shaffer
said today. "It would not be wise to
say any certain mill will strike until
It does. We like to let the newspapers
tell about thnt first."
Regarding: Tin Plates.
Tlio lodges of the International Tin
Plate Workers' Protective association,
throughout the country are passing
upon tin question of handling the
Welsh plates which the American Tln-
plate company plans to Import to re
plenlsh the supply cut off by the strike
and their decision will have nn Import
ant bearing on the strike. The Tin
plate Workers claim that on certain
occasion" In the past when they asked
for the aid of the Amalgamated asso
ciation they were Riven no satisfaction
and that the Amalgamated association
Itself furnished precedents against
A lengthy statement In behalf of the
tin worker has been made public here.
After stating that the Welsh plates are
made by union men, the .wtntenicnt re
views the hlstorv of the organization
after the American Federation of
Labor convent lor. In Kansas City In
President Shaffer conducted Hip for
malities of Its organization-, nnd the
"Feeing at this time that the inlet -ests
of the tin bouse men were Identi
cal with the members of the Amalga
mated association, we solicited Shaffer
to enter Into a del'enwlve alliance, to
strengthen the position of both organ
izations in trade disputes. Shaffer ob
jected. He told us that the Amalga
mated association stood for the ob
sei value of Its contract, and thnt It
could not entei Into any defensive com
pact which would obligate- the assoi I
atlon to violate either the spirit 01 the
letter of its signed agreements, lie
said he lould only promise the 'moral
and financial' aid provided In the laws
of the American Federation of Labor,
for which he acted when he organized
the tin house employes. We finally got
our scale adonted without any assist
ance from the Amalgamated associa
tion. "Two years ago. while we were dis
cussing scale points with W. II. lira
bain, vlce-piesldeut of the American
Tlnplate company, that gentlemen
showed iw a communication fiom
Piesldent Shaffer, which was sent In
reply to n itnteitieiit by Mr. (irahuni
that If he granted certain wnge ad
vances to the Amalgamated members
employed In the hot mills of the com
pany, he would have to grant an ad
vance alo to the tin hnu-'e men. as the
union of the tin bouse men would un
doubtedly demand It. Shaffer tppllcd:
" 'The tin house employes are not en
titled to recognition in this discussion.
They aie not skilled men, and should
not be organized.' "
The .statement closes with an asser
tion that one year ago the Amalga
mated men refused aid In settling the
scale and that at Conncllsvllle and
Cleveland the Amalgamated men aided
the company In lining the places of
sulking tinplate workers
Prospects nt Carnegie.
A despatch from McKoosport says:
"The .likers expect the Duquesne
plant of the Carnegie s'tcel company
will be out In thiee days. They say
It Is organized and is waiting to co
operate w.th Homestead and Hraddock
mills and t'.inl this Is the trump card
President Shaffer has been holding.
Trouble Is expected If men are Import
ed or any old men return to work.
"The tube welders published nn an
nouncement today that they will Join
no union, but will remain out while the
strike Is on. Mayor Hlack refused per
mission to the Socialist Labor party to
hold a street meeting. He says politi
cal meetings are more dangerous than
gatherings of strikers nn the streets,

rupted the spring wheat harvest.
'Che steel strike has affected prlce

advance has been greatest, while hoops,

sales are at private terms. Confidence
Is steadily shown by placing nf dhtant
deliveries at regular pi ices. Consump

Official tignres of condition were far

BETTING IS VERY LIVELY
Best Raco of the Afternoon That of

Class This Season Many Starters

Py Kilubo Wire from The Ae.-iocl.ited Pre".
New York, Aug. It!. Ideal weather
prevailed at Brighton He.ich today and
although the crowd was small In com
parison with that of yesterday, still
there was a fair attendance and the
racing was of a high class. The best
race of the afternoon was that of the
three-year. old and proved the bet
contested and fastest of Its class this
season. In the first heat ut the finish
the leadeis were tally heads apart and
In the second beat the clip was such
a fast one that three fell by the way
side, Including the winner of the llrst
heat. Kach of the other beats was
equally as Interesting and In the fourth
the finish was so close that the Judges
hesitated for a long time before decid
ing It In favor of Carrie Hell. The
daughter of Lynncbcl gxit the finishing
heat, but only after a bard struggle.
Petting was decidedly lively In the
IMS trot and with eleven starters Ivn
Deo was a strong favorite. Juno T.
managed to secure the llrst heat, but
In a rattling finish In the second Mau
rlng was llrst under the wire, but for
breaks was placed second to lva Dee.
The latter lost the third heat through a
break at the start and this and the
fourth went to Mnurlne. lva Dee won
the next two heats hiul the race.
The great betting race was the '.'.OS
pace, ami In the early pools Dan Patch
brought $1,300 to the same amount on
the rest of the Held. Another of $1,000
against an equal amount and one of
$;i0t) on similar terms were recorded.
There were seven starters and It was
very evident that Dan Patch was not
driven to win in tho llrst heat and he
Mulshed well back In fourth position.
It was quite different In the second,

WILL FLOAT TODAY
Will Swing Her Anchor Off Staple
ton Nenr the Steam Yacht
Py Kxcluxbe Wire fiom The AiMiciatccI Prcwa,
New York, Aug. lfi. Sir Thomas Hil
ton's Shamrock II will be floated out
of dry dock before noon tomorrow It
the plans of the officers of the yacht are
adhered to, and before sunset she will
be swinging to her anchor off Stapleton
near the steam yacht Krln. The work
of polishing the underbody was con
tinued throughout the day and com
pleted Just before midnight, the work
men putting the finishing touches on
the bright metal under the glare of
electric lights until It reflected the rays
like a mirror. The coat of green paint
which was to have been applied to her
topsldes will not be given until she Is
hauled out into the open vfnter.
The frequent statement that the
Shamrock II Is hard to steer. Is slow' In
stays, experts say. Is shown by an
analysis of the lateral plans of the
yacht as compared with the position
of the center of the sail plan. Tho
carrying forward of the yacht, it Is
stated, would have obviated this error,
which, of necessity, make her carry a
lee helm. Thnt this error In trim has
been noticed by Mr. Watson Is shown
by the preparations for a larger main
sail to lit the new boom, thus bringing
the centre of effort n trifle aft of the
centre of lateral resistance, giving the
yacht a slight weather hem. This will
make the yacht quicker In stays and
remedy the only fault that her sailing
master admits does exist.
