New York, Aug. 2 2. Throe big
steel corporations, employing marly
300.000 workers, today announced
a 20 per cent wage increase for all
day laborers in their manufacturing
plants. The United States Steel cor
poration tok the bad. but was qhirk
ly followed by the Midvale Steed and
Ordnance company and the Youngs
town Sheet and Tube company.
In the absence of Charles Schwab
and Eugene Grace of the Btfhlehem
Steel corporation, no other official
of that company won 11 commit him
self. Secretary Brown said, how
ever, he did not know of any action
that had been taken on the wage
question. President Matthews of the
Crucible Steel corporation said his
campany has taken no action "as
yet." It was generally believed in fi
nancial circles that all important in
dependent steel firms would announce
increases within a few days.
News of the increase came as fi
surprise to the financial district,
probably because wage adjustments
in other industries have been gen
erally downward. It was followed by
slight recessions in the price of steel
j No explanation of the increase was
I given by the steel corporations. How
ever, it is known that the immigra
nt ion law hns cut off the supply of
unskilled laborers which formerly
drifted to the iron and steel centers.
When the labor shortage became
acute last spring and the steel indus
try began to show simis of rehabili
tation, temporary relief was afford
ed by the employment of men thrown
out of work by the coal strike.

This afternoon Deputy U. S. Mar-
hal Carl Newman departed for Om

against whom a complaint has been
filed in the federal court by members
of the Burlington guard camp at
the shops. The charges grow out of
the mix-up at the station here last
week and which was the cause of a
great deal of excitement at the time.
It is claimed that the young man
had called the members of the guards
several names, but this is denied by
the friends of the boy and who are
acquainted with the circumstances
of the case. The matter will be heard
before Judge Woodrough in the U. S.
court this week.

HEALTH OF TROOPS GOOD
The health of the troops at Camp
Barry is the best that can be found
in a gathering of 1,400 men any
place, is the assurance of Major P.
II .Bartholomew, camp surgeon. Very
few cases that have required treat
ment have been reported at the camp
infirmary and these have been of such
slight a nature as not to be serious
in any way. The excellent facilities
of the camp for caring for the sick
are the best that can be found and
very few army camps have the advan
tage of the fine array of medical as
sistance as is found at Camp Barry.
Major Bartholomew is one of the old
officers of the guard, and had expe
rience in this line with the troops
at Lia Grande, Texas, in 1916 and in
1917 was sent with the Nebraska
national guard to Camp Cody, New
Mexico, as surgeon of the 6th Ne
braska and later served there as sur
geon of the 135th infantry, and
ranked as one of the best and most
efficient officers of the medical corps,
stationed at the camp in the sandy
New Mexico desert.
