3,800 MEN IDLE,
The Carnegie Steel Works at Homestead
Shut Down.-A great Strike
I'lTTsni'itoil, Pa., July 1. Yesterday every
department of the immense Carnegie steel
works ut Homestead wu shut down, throw
ing about 3,Sikj men out of employment.
The men received notice of the shut-down
quietly, as they had been fully prepared for
It by the following notice posted up in many
places throughout the great works:
"All i-mplnyes nf the several lie piirtlncnt will re.
pnrttnthi' nrtiee nn Kuluril'i.v next, July 2, when
they will reci-lvo their lull puy."
This notice is simply a notice of dis
charge, It has been the custom of the Carnegles,
nnd nil other mills, to discharge their men
on the night of the expiration of the yearly
contract. The men bud declared positively
that they would strike at the date of tho ex
piration of the yearly contract. This term
of expiration was to occur either nt 0 o'clock
this morning, or li o'clock this evening, just
ns the authorities decided. At midnigh' the
firm clcverlv forestalled tho men, and llatly
declared b shut-down. Instead of being a
strike then tit the great steel works, tho ac
tion of the linn ha made it a lock-out. This
rather puts the men on the defensive.
Tlie Amalgamated Association ha not yet
declared a strike. They had accepted the
oiler of the firm, and instead of declaring a
strike nt the date fixed by the firm, .liiuel,
tlie men had waited until June iM before
their final move wa made. Of course the
action of the firm inclosing all department
with tho possible exception of tlie beam
department forces a lock-out instead of a
strike. As the Amalgamated has disbanded
