AFRAID TO GO
BACK TO WORK
EVEN THE WATCHMEN DESERT
THE WAHNKE WASHERY.
Fifty Men Wero Engaged to Work
Thoro but Only Flvo of Thorn He
ported for Duty, Because of tho
Tear Prevalent of tho Duryca
Strikers District President Nich
olls Claims There Aro No Union
Men Working at tho Oxford nnd
Cayuga Othor Strike News.
No now collieries or washerlos start
ed up, yostouluy, contrary to expecta
tions, It was announced on Saturday
that tho Woodward at Kingston would
resume operations, yesterday morning,
but tho effort was not made. Inquiry
at tho company's office elicited only
the statement that It was not definitely
known what day the start would be
made.
Frederick Wnrnkc had fifty men en
gaged to operate his washery at Dur
yca, but only live of them showed up
for woik. Some of tho othcis sent word
that they were afraid to wenk in Dur
yp.i on account of tho bad name tho
place bears. Even the men employed
nt tho Wnrnkc washery us watchmen
nic deseitlng thiough fear. Mr.
Warnko nnd members of his family
are compelled now to take turns at as
sisting tho watchmen still on duty.
The Oxfoul nnd Cayuga continue to
woik, and according to the claims of
the lcspectlvo companies the forces ut
each place are augmented dally by de
sertions from the strlkeis' ranks.
Dlslilct President Nicholls claims
there aio no strlkeis buck at woik In
these places. The claim Is made In a
lengthy statement Issued yesterday.
Picsldcnt Nicholls' statement follows:
NICHOLLS' STATEMENT.
Notwithstanding statements appearing
In the piess coming from ofllclalt. of va
iloiu coal companies, to tho effect that
they will not make any effoit to stait
their collieries until the Illinois apply for
their woik again; wo aio daily notllled
that the local mine officials or agents mo
ery actively engaged In trjlng to per
suade tho men to rutin n to woi k.
Tho effort made to cause dis&atlsf.iction
by fallacious niguments concerning the
dl&tilhtitlon of "lcllef" has been a com
plete falluie; and we now fear no evil
lesnlts from that coulee.
Tho mlncis decided that it will be s-afor
to accent the plan of disliibution as sub-
,mittcd by Picsldcnt Mitchell, than the
equal distribution plan as buggehtcu oy
some of the officials of the co.il coipora
tlons. They icasoned that Picsldcnt
Mitchell would natuinlly plan to use tho
lundh that the e.pcndituie would bring
vlctoiy: while they also reasoned that
the opera tots' plans would just as natui
ally be to have the money so expended
that it would weaken Instead of sticngtli
ening the stiikc and eventually bicak it,
as they did In a similar Instance some
eais ago, when they wcio fciicccssful in
getting the men quairellng among them:
selves.
Tho funds so far have been found sut
llclent to meet tho actual necessities.
While the number of those In need will
natui.illy incease as time goes on; the
tneioaso in the amounts lcculved, which
will commence with the bcginlug of net
week, when the assessment lc led on the
bituminous mineis will bo foi wauled to
the national office. This, together with
the aid we expect fiom the other labor
oiganlzatlons and sympathize! s, will so
Incrcaso our fund as to enable us to meet
the inci cased demands for aid.
Wo also expect a continual exodus of
mlno woikeis to other Holds, which will
also fctiengthcn our position, llach miner
is trying to foitlty himself and family
for the winter If necessary by getting
woik, which will make him independent,
and wo do not expect after a time to
have any lnoio icmainlns than the old
men and u low who may bo unable to
obtain woik.
NOT EX-STRIKERS.
While It has been lpported far and
near that the Oxfoid and Cayuga collier
ies ate In opeiatlon, tho tacts aio, aecoul
Ing to lepoits lccclvcd at this ofllce fiom
our local olilceis, that none of our mineis
nie woi king at these places, and that
only coal which was loaded befoio tho
strike and left In the mine cais is tho
gicutest poitlou if not all the coal that
Is now being hoisted to tho sui face. The
opeintors' only hope at this tlnio is tho
moial effect on our membeis of seeing it
colliery In opeiatlon. They liopo this will
dlscoui.'tgo them. The mineis, however,
know that a half docn mineis at any
or each colllciy cannot till tho placcn, or
do the woik of tho hundreds of men
usually employed, and aie not dlscour
uged thereby.
Tho beginning of the thirteenth week of
tho btiiko tiuds the men moie steadfast
unci dctei mined than cer, and with In
ci eased strength to continue the strug
gle tor tho substitution of an honest wes
tern for a couupt system of employment;
tho old system has destroyed all coull
deuee between employer and employe.
When tho pi lea of hon or steel ln
ciease.s tho iiillioad ofllclals do not closo
down the railioads and lefuso to pay
the pi lee; but just as soon as men de
mand a just system of employed and In
ci cased wage they close down their mines
anil light tho demands with till tho power
tliey contiol, and with bltfeniess of spliit.
Should not tho demands of man bo at
least w oi thy of as much consideration as
tho demands of a plcco of lion? I hope
the opointois will pay the incieabo de
manded by the mineis; I would llko to
seo them pay, because they rcalizo tho
justlco of tho demands, but If not then
for tho same leason that they pay the
pilco demanded for lion nnd steel; 1. o
because they cannot set tho bervlco of
tho men unless they pay the piopert
v.tluo demanded, T, D. Nicholls,

LABOR MEN INDICTED.
Chicago Strikers Hold for Employing
Thug3 to 'W' "Scabs."
Something new In tho evolution of
strikes Is lopoitcd from Chicago, hav
ing boon put In evidence before the
Cook county grand Jury. A local bruss
mouldots' union recently had difficulty
with a firm of employers, went on
strike and piocecded to devise means
to keep other workers from filling the
vacated places.
As soon us the strike was called they
union voted an emergency fund and
appointed a committee to superintend
its disbursement. This committee
used It in employing sluggers nnd
bruisers to commit physical assault
upon men who Interfered with the
union's plan. Says the Record-Herald:
The scale of ptlces vailed. For a plain
"slugging" match, J5 Is tho price credited
with having been paid. It bones wore
bioken, so the evidence showed, the "op
eiatois" weio paid accoidlng to tho ex
tent of the Injury as affecting the abil
ity of the victim to perform his dally
duties. In leekonlng the rate to bo paid,
comparatively, the general plan adopted
by accident Insuinnco companies was fol
lowed, making a bioken arm equivalent
In value, or thereabouts, to a bioken
lower limb, with a bioken hand or linger
lated nt a lessor value. An assault, with
lesultant effects siilllclent to send the In
juied one to the hospital, was classified
as woik of a supeilor giade, and com
pensation conunensuiato with tho service
londeied allotted the "flying squadron"
or "wrecking crow" In charge of the
case. Tho story repeated to tho jurors
dilated upon the allegation that the num
ber of weeks the victim was confined In
the hospital also entered Into tho ques
tion of the nmount of compensation. It
was testified that $78 was paid out in one
instance, so complcto was the service
lendered by tho "wiccking crew." The
definitions of tho two sobiiquets applied
to the committees describe adequately
and nceuiatcly the difference between
their grades of woik. The "flying squad
ron" was so called because its members
would nttack the object of their enmity
In somo public place, wheio tho electilc
lights shone biightly and tiollcy linos
ciossed, affoidlng thorn soveial avenues
of escape. Tho members of tho "squad
ion" would pcuneo upon their victim
even while pcdcsti Inns and others wit
nessed tho assault, ai.d then separate and
lun to cover. The "wrecking crews" op
erated along entirely dlffeicnt linos.
They went out In search of their man
and followed him homo fiom his work.
In somo secluded spot they would sur
lound him nnd boat and malm him to
their satisfaction.
Eleven members of this union arc
now under Indictment and their trial
will afford further Information as to
the methods used In terrorizing non
union workers. It Is proper to add
that this kind of industrial battle has
the approval of only tho lower grades
ot labor leaders. Intelligent unionists
know that it cannot win.

and workshops during this hot summer
weather, and women weighted with tho
work und cares of home, aro critically
ncur the brouklng down point. The
symptoms ot coming sickness and dis
ease aro manifested In sleeplessness,
nervousness, tired feeling, languldness,
Irritability, falling appetite, und poor
blood circulation.
Pnlne's Celery Compound Is a preci
ous boon to the ailing, sick, and run
down In this August weather. A bottle
or two used nt once will quickly bestow
tho needed strength to bnttle against
tho weakening and enervating effects
of the oppressive heat, and will enable
men und women to go through the ncc
essary routine of dnllv toll with heart,
soul, and energy. Pnlne's Celery Com
pound Is specially distinguished for Its
ability to build up rundown systems In
hot weather.
Mr. George W. Demurest, of 128 West
67th street, New York, says:
"I am a licensed stationary engineer,
and although my work is not very
laborious, I suffered so Intensely with
severe pain3 in my back and kidneys
that I was compelled to leave my work
nnd remuln at home for six months. 1
suffered greatly with headaches ,und
soreness In chest and lungs, nnd my
Joints became very stiff. I uctually felt
I was doomed to fill an old man's grave
at the age of thirty-two. As a last re
sort, I used two bottles of Palno's Cel
ery Compound, when I was able to re
sume my work, and after using the
third bottle, I am In perfect health. The
value of Paine's Celery Compound Is
inestimable, and I urge others afllicted
as I was to use it."
