FITT8BURO, Aug. 26. Some re
markable chances in the condition of
the ctrike-ridden mill of the United
States Steel corporation are promised
for the present week that wilf change
the a pert of affairs considerably if
carried out It was stated on good au
thority today that before the end of
the week those of the plants that have
been operating on single turn will
be ran with full force and for the
usual three full turns each day. Men
enough have been secured tor this
purpose, the officials say, In spite of
the claims of the strikers that the
companies could not get enough men
to operat their plants, and the man
agers of the mills say they will be
ready with all the skilled men requir
ed to start up the machinery and turn
cut a heavy tonnage.
The most Interesting situation is in
the Star mill of the American tin plate
plant here. This plant was until this
summer conaidered as doomed. The
tin plate company had, it is said, de
cided to abandon the mill and move
the machinery elsewhere. Since the
strike has come on them and It was
demonstrated that the operation of the
mill with non-union men was possible
under the protection of a well equip
ped police force, the officials decided
to keep this mill, make extensive Im
provements In Its equipment and make
It a permanent fixture of the company.
The most significant feature of this
plan has been carried out during the
past week. That consists of fitting tbe
mill In the same manner as that of tbe
Monessen (Pa.) plant The former
eight mills have been changed to four
double mills. Other Improvements have
been added that will give the plant a
larger capacity, increase its force of
men and make it one of tbe most mod
ern of all tbe tin plants In tbe coun
With the completion of these Im
provements, the company will be pre
pared to place a sufficient number of
men in the plant to work tbe four
double mills three full turns. This is
said to be expected to take place dur
ing the present week. Before Satur
day, according to Superintendent Piper
of the Star mills, tbe plant will be op
erated to its full extent
Referring to the present condition of
the mills, Mr. Piper said: "We received
eight skilled men early this morning.
J. R. Phillips of the company ac
companied the men to the mill and It
was not until after they were in and
comfortably settled for the night that
the strikers discovered their presence.
Those men are of the best in the trade
and will enable us to move the plant
on a better basis than before."
Outside tbe Star plant today a large
umber of strikers were on picket
doty.. They were quiet and orderely,
but had their eyes and ears open for
any signs of newcomers. The pecu
liar feature of the strike about the
Star plant ia the good feeling display
ed between the strikers and the man
ager of the plant When Superintend
ent Piper left the building early this
morning he met tbe strikers and laugh
ed good naturedly to tbem. He said
to the anxious pickets: "I bad more
fun ia getting those last aiett into tbe
plant than at a game of checkers."

MANILA, Aug. 26. In the city of
Manila there are now less than 1,000
effective soldiers and it has been decid
ed to increase this number by four
companies of infantry. The otnrtai
reason for tbe Increase Is that the,
guard duty Is too hesvy for the pres
ent force. As a matter of fact, bow
ever, there ia a felling that although
there Is no apparent prospect of trou
ble, nevertheless in the event of an
uprising In the future, such as Is al
ways possible among tbe Malays, it
would be better to hsve a sufficient
body of troop available. .
General Chaffee says he considers
the city of Manila to be perfectly or
derly and he can see no prospect of
an uprising. Commissioner Wright
thinks the people "extremely peace
able." He Is satisfied that, although
among a certain class there Is some
discontent on account of the land tax,
which is not yet understood, this class
is not likely to foment trouble.
Many army officers say they are
gratified at the increase in the mili
tary force. They think that with the
military guard withdrawn from tbe
prison another uprising there might re
sult in the release of about 1,800 pris
oners. This possibility is regarded aa
a menace to the city by those who
take that view of the case, as they
regard the -white guard as insufficient.

HAVANA, Aug. 26. Gustav Beck,
In the course of a report to the cigar
manufacturers' union regarding the
outlook of lae cigar and tobacco in
dustry, expresses the opinion that
there ia nn ganger to apprehended
from American competition so far as
Cuban cigars are concerned. He takes
the ground that, even if Cuba sent
all her cigars to tbe Jnited States
and produced 20,0.0.000 last year, this
could not seriously affect tbe Amer
ican producers and manufacturers,
who sold 5,500,000,000 cigars in tbe
United States. Even if Cuba were to
more than double her present output
and to send all to the United States
this would not change tbe situation.
Mr. Beck points out also that the
tobacco soil in Cuba is limited and
that the American grower has tbe ad
vantage of the Cuban grower in view
of the fact that the cost of his pro
duction of tobacco is greater in Cuba
than in the United States.
