Steel Employes Satisfied With Condi- I
tions of Existing Agreement
Pittsburgh, Dec 17-.—Employes of:
the I nited States Steel Corporation do
not believe there will be any cut in i
wages for the coming year. The men
have been working along on two and
three days' worn a week. In the last
two weeks there has been a slight im
provement and they are working from
half to three-fourths' time. A fe>v|
I men occasionally get in a full week's
1 work.
! Since the strike of 1892 the various!
mills have b'>en operated under an
agreement. This has been one-sided, as !
: the company will not deal with com
mittees and the men accepted whatever
j they were offered. Two years ago the
i companies gave their employes a volun- ;
I tary increase and, although the agree
ment declares notice shall be given by !
, both sides before any change in scale
lis made, the company has not given
I the required notice.
Ninety per cent, of the 10,000 em
; uloves in the Homestead Steel Works,
i Carrie Furnaces, Howard Axle Works
arid Schoen Steel Car Wheel Works, it
is claimed, are satisfied with the pres
! ent agreement. The workmen say they
j realize the conditions are such that the
companies cannot operate their plants ;
fully, anil that in the absence of any !
cut they feel they are being treated j
' fairly. The operation of the plants on
I >-hort time was devised to give all men j
: some work, while the policy of re
| trenchment was being carried out. j

The President spent some time in a
large department store, where he was
recognized by many of the shoppers.
The pla e was crowded, but nobody
bothered the President or showed any
offensive curiosity as to his purchases.
One woman, who appeared to know him,
shook hands with -Mr. Wiison and talk
ed with him for a moment.
The President was in excellent spir
its. The shopping tour kept him away
