Pittsburg, Aug. 21. The steel strike
situation underwent no change today.
Thete was no extension of the stt Ike
nnd the steel nianagets did not at
tempt to start any more mills. Lat"
In the day the tltes weie lighted In the
Deininlar tin tilate woiks at McKees-

ate it. it Is believed, however, that
the movement is preliminary to it start
with non-union men. The manageis of
th" company have been nretiarlng for
several da) a to reopen a number of
th If properties and It Is thought that
they have decided to act at once. The
Monessen plant is moving abend un
interruptedly with full crews and their
Ciescent winks at Cleveland has about
half the machines In operation. Theto
has been no break In theCarneglegroup
and the mills that have been started
with non-union men since the strlko
began are going ahead with about the
same force of men. The leadeis on
either side were busy all day, but at
nightfall both said there weie no an
nouncemtnts to make.

Carnegie Steel company and confeired

Shaffer was at the ofllce of the Amalga

most of the time conferring with dele

was a day of exciting ipiiorv, begin

plot to destroy the Monongahela tin

Strike Breaker's Story.
John Sternsdorf, a rougher from
Plehmond. Vn., who claimed that he
was a member of tho party of strike
breakers brought to .Monessen on Sun
day by "Alabama Joe" Carter, was at
strike headquarters today. lie said
that Carter had entirely misrepresent
ed tho facts to him and that he had
slipped out of the works the first time
a chance had presented Itself. He
says fourteen men left P.Ichmond;
that five deserted en route and that
three left when ho did. He placed the
number of men now In them 111 nt
eighteen nnd saltl vety little work was
The strikers welcomed Sternsdorf
and were elated over his statement.
When he told them that another party
was being formed to come north, they
took steps to head It off. According to
the strike leadeis, only two men who
were membeis of the association have
gonp to work In mills that are now
being opciated partly or In full with
non-union men. Assistant Secretary
M. F. Tlghe said today that he was
still of thp opinion that most of the
men In the Chicago mill would be out
before the end of the present week. Ho
said that he had received word from
the mills, but of a personal nature,
and he could not give nny of the dp
talls. I'ipsldetit Shaffer said that tho

said that he was still prepared to dis

with the steel corporation, but that hp
did not look for any move In that
direction for some time to come,
Mr. Shaffer's Plans.
President Theodore J. Shaffer, of the
Amalgamated association, said tonight
that he hiifi well defined plans to btlng
the strlkP to a close This Is to be
done by bringing about such a crisis
In the differences between the steel
i'orporatlon and the Amalgamated as
sociation as will force a settlement.
Just how nil this Is to be accomplished
Is a mystery, but It will not bo by
arbitration or litigation.
In answer to questions about the
numerous stoiles going the rounds of
mediation or arbitration, Mr. Shaffer
dismissed all by salng:
"We have not heard from the other
side; we have not placed anything
before, them nnd I know of nobody act
ing for either side or on any side.
"Wo are not hunting for nt hit union.
Arbitration, reptcsentlng both hides
might be woie than the strike Itself,
Two willing champions, one for each
Ide, might havei ii vwux light In
choosing a third party and In settling
the differences than we In the con
tinuation of the stt Ike.
"I have told the other side that per
sonally I would consent for disinter
ested arbitration In the hands of such
public men as are Archbishop Ireland,
Bishop Potter and Seth Low, although
I dll not as an ofllcer of the artoela
Hon, suggest such a move, I was will
ing to advise it."
A squad of non-union tin woikera
are bcheduled to arrive In Pltuburg
at 10.50 o'clock In the morning, their
destination lielng either Demmler or
the Star tlnplate works-.
Seven strikers were arrested near
the gates of the Pennsylvania tube
works In Soho. When the whittle
blew at 30 o'clock a crowd of about
1 T.Oi) gatheied to give a watm recep
tion to any vvnikers who might come
from the mill. None came, but the
eiowd became noisy and the large force
of policemen on hand run the lead

and culled for the patrol.
American Federation nlltelals offeied

with disorderly conduct, but the mag

Philadelphia. Aug. 21. Hy the cot.
apse of a burning oil tanik today at
the Atlantic Rellning company plant
at Point Hi coze, where a tire has be.n
raging flnce Monday afternoon, about
100 persons, lliemeti, employes of the
company and spectatom were more or
less Foverolv burned. Most of tha
cases were tt rated on the ground by
ambulance surgeons, but a few of
them were seriously Injured and te
nioved to the hospitals. It was short
ly after 2 o'clock this afternoon when
the tank fell, the heavy Iron sheathtns
separating nt the senilis precipitating
Bfc.it ciunntltlcA of blazing- petroleum
Into Passyunk avenue. There was
a wild stainde among the people In
the vicinity, but many of them were
badly huriicd by the fiery spray which
fell among them.
Dykes weie hastily thrown up by
the firemen and employes of the com
pany nnd tho blazing fluid -was con
duct! to an aiea of about two hlork
cm Passyunk avenue. At one time It
woh thought the llamfs would com
municate with the purifying house of
the t'nlted flas ltupiovement company
which Ik separated from the oil works
by a vacant lot. The burning oil over
flowed the dykes to the lot and only
the most determined efforts saved the
gas company's, property. Trenches
were dug ami eight lines of hose wero
kept constantly playing on the puri
It Is feared that other exploding or
collapsing tanks may cause the oil to
Hood the trenches, In which event It
would bo extremely dltllcult to save

Oil in the Sewers.
After yesterdays c.ploslon a small
quantity of burning oil entered a few
of ttie seweis, but burned out before
reaching the river. Today the hastily
construe ted dykes prevented the oil
which pouted Into the stt est from en
tetlng the sewer Inlets. The firemen
are exerting every effort to prevent tho
blazing lluld fiom reaching the river,
as much destruction to property would
undoubtedly result If this should oc
cur. Tonight tvjji o.l tanks ate In flames.
On either side of one of them are two
benzine tanks which are in imminent
danger. Mnes of hos ate constantly
playing on the benzine tanks, but oill
clals of the tire depoitment express the
fear that they tatinot bo saved. Tho
company's otllellas dec line to state thj
number of tanks thus fat destroved,
but It Is claimed by the firemen that
fifteen have ceitalnly been burned and
It Is iliopubic that the number la
greater. The aveiage quantity of oil
In each tank Is said to be about 20,000
