Pittsburg, March 7. The strike of
the miners of the Pittsburg district is on
in full force. It is expected that today
will see a general suspension of work.
There are three companies whose min
ers, it is thought, will stay at work.
Near Monongahela last night the men
held a meeting and, after completing
the loading of a barge at the request of
the superintendent, qnit work.
All the miners of the fourth pool are
expected to come out this morning.
There is a good boating stage aud the
operators are desirous of continuing
work. Some of them have proposed
compromise, but in each case they have
beeu rejected with the demand for the
rate decided upon by the convention.
It is estimated that before night 15,000
miners will have quit work in support
of the demands of the convention.
Reports received at the miners' head
quarters in this city up to noon show a
general suspension of work tliroughout
the district. From the report of the
commissioner of labor,showing the num
ber of miners employed in the district,
it is estimated that the number who are
on strike is over 21,000, and that the
number employed at the mines where
there will be no strike is about 1,300.
The men are determined to win, al
though each one will have to rely on his
own resources for sustenance during the
suspension, as the organization has not
the funds to pay strike benefits.
T.cirge Meeting of Operators.
Des Moines, March 7. The largest
and most representative meeting of coal
mine operators ever held in Iowa is in
session here, but no definite results have
been reached on any subject before it.
The conference with miners' repxesenta
tives will occupy tomorrow. The min
ers will demand the restoration of the
scale of 1893. The operators are divided.
