Matters of Especial Interest To and Con
cerning Those Who Do the
Work of the World
Springfield. IU. Officials of the
United Mine Workers look forward to
a steady increase in output of the
mines and consequently a resumption
of work on part of members of the
union in Illinois. Of the 70,000 miners
in the state, but 30,000 are now ac
tively engaged and they are working
but half the time. Only the mines
controlled by the railroad systems,
including those operated by the Chi
cago & Northwestern at Girard and
those of the Illinois Central in the
southern part of the state are now
employing their regular force of men.
Officials of the state body are of the
opinion that general improved trade
conditions will result in active em
ployment of at least 50 per cent, of
the men now out of work. This condi
tion is expected to ensue by the first
of August. Various mines through
out the state have been increasing
their output and force in the past few
weeks. Where the plants were work
ing but two days out of the week
in June, thev are now operated three
days in many cases. AUowng for the
regular increase of business in August
it is expected improved trade condi
tions will result in a large increase of
work for the miners.
Milwaukee. After agitating the
matter for more than three years
three machinists lodges in the city
have voted to consolidate and will
hold the first meeting on Aug. 6.
A committee of eight Is perfecting
the plans for the consolidation, and
the meeting probably will be held at
226 Grand avenue. Lodges that have
voted to merge are 300, 301 and 248.
By affiliating. . it is thought, the
strength of the unions can be concen
trated and the work in this district
facilitated. The lodges that will join
are composed of shopmen, and it will
leave two lodges in the city, the
other consisting of railroad men.
New York. Necessity for old-age
pensions becomes more and more im
perative every day as it is seen that
young men are being insisted on by
those employing iatfbr. A report of
the special employment bureau of
New York, conducted for the purpose
of securing employment for men more
than 50 years of age, conducted by
charity organizations, says that in a
year it has been able to find work
for only 75 men out of 193 who were
more than 50 years old. and in each
case of refusal the applicant's, age
was the only Abjection.
Port Huron. Mich. That the Ma
rine engineers who are now out on
strike are still on a solid footing is
shown by letters received by members
of M. E. B. A. in Port Huron. One
well-known engineer has been offered
$2,000 for the season if he will leave
the ranks of the strikers and take a
berth, and it is stipulated in the let
ter that the money will be paid In ad
vance. Another has been offered $2,
300 for the remainder of the season.
Both of the engineers, however, have
positively refused to accept their of
fers. Milwaukee. The sweeping reduc
tion of 50 per cent, in the price lists
on all grades of ware sought by the
glass bottle manufacturers will be op
posed by the Glass Bottle Blowers'
association, in accordance with action
taken at the convention in session in
Pabst Theater building. While no
definite action was taken on the re
duction sought by the employers, it
was the general opinion that the as
sociation should strenuously oppose
a sweeping reduction in wages.
Indianapolis, Ind. Hundreds of
thousands of workingmen -are inter
ested in the dedication of the new
International unions' headquarters
building in this city on July 22. The
International Brotherhood of Team
sters and the Barbers' International
union are to have their offices in
the carpenters organization borne.
The Typographical union and the
Mine Workers of America have na
tional headquarters here, but they are
to continue in their present offices.
Pittsburg, Kan. It was officially an
nounced at the district headquarters
of the United Mine Workers of Amer
ica here that an agreement to restore
the check-off in the Kansas coal fields
had been reached as a result of the
conference of the miners national
board and the Southwest Coal Op
erators' association. A general strike
of 32,000 coal miners is averted.
San Francisco. The Union Labor
party leaders have nominated P. H.
McCarthy, president of the Building
Trades council, for mayor; Thomas
Finn for sheriff, and II- L. Mullevy for
county clerk. These are the three
principal offices to be filled at the
coming municipal election in that
Indianapolis. The Udell works an
nounced that the plant will resume
work with a full force of workmen.
The plant has been closed for some
time making repairs. About 200 men
will be put to work soon.
Pittsburg. James Ashford was or
dered reinstated and allowed 20 days'
pay for the time he was off duty in
the decision of the arbitrators ap
pointed to adjust the single issue of
the recent street car strike.
Helena, Mont. Montana laboring
men have 16 card men in the house
of representatives and two men carry
ing union cards in the senate.
Pittsburg. The United States Steel
corporation here offered the rate of
$12 per day and guaranteed steady
employment to strike-breakers wanted
to work in the tin mills throughout
the district. This is at least double
the wages earned by the workmen be
fore the strike. About 25 men were
engaged. The strikers are jubilant
over the outlook, claiming the tin
mills have not yet secured an expert
tin worker. The strikers also claim
that the corporation is trying to
starve them into submission, that the
grocers and other shopkeepers have
been warned not to extend further
credit to the strikers. Some alarm
is felt over the announcement from
the steel corporation that it proposes
to establish a tin plate center at Gary.
Milwaukee. The glass bottle blow
ers have a plan of their own for
keeping peace with the employers and
yet maintaining fair labor conditions.
It consists of a conference system,
by which both . sides come together
and give and take, as the logic of
conditions requires. President Den
nis A Hayes, in his report to the con
vention, quoted from the statement
of the National Association, of Glass
Bottle and Vial Manufacturers the
following: "We believe nothing
which has become a part of the in
dustry has done so much for the de
velopment of all engaged as the con
ference system for the settlement of
wages." Because of this system, the
organization has not had a strike in
MiiwauKee. Harmony between em
ployer and employe as the founda
tion of the best results was the
scheme of a talk by John Mitchell,
former president of the United Mine
workers of America, before the Glass
Bottle Blowers association of the
United States and Canada. Mr.
Mitchell reviewed labor onditions
generally. He said the glass blow
ers should gain control of the ma
chines employed in their trade, the
same as crafts in other lines had
reached the point whereby they gov
erned machinery which lessened the
number of employes.
Milwaukee. The proposition 'of
erecting and maintaining a sani
tarium for afflicted members will be
considered at the convention of or
ganized barbers, which will be held
in Milwaukee in October. The mat
ter is being agitated among members
and a well defined movement for its
erection has been started. It is pro
posed . to maintain a sanitarium
similar to that conducted by the or
ganized printers, who are the pioneers
in this line as far as organized labor
Pittsburg. The resident manager
of the H. C. Frick Company received
orders to obtain at least 6,000 men for
the company's coke ovens through
out western Pennsylvania. New
York, Chicago, Philadelphia and Bos
ton contract employment concerns
have been instructed to ship all men
obtainable to Pittsburg at once, to be
sent out from here. The Frick Com
pany will advance their coke produc
tion from 65 to 90 per cent, capacity
and the increase calls for the imme
diate need of the additional men.
New Haven, Conn. Beginning at
once the men in the mechanical de
partment of the New York, New Hav
en & Hartford railroad will be given
six days work weekly instead of four
days, the time to which they were re
duced when the business depression
was at its worst.
Milwaukee. A $3,000 damage suit
is one of the side issues of the marine
firemen's strike, the sequel of a recent
street fight in which Joseph Smith, a
nonunion man. was beaten, it is al
leged, by Robert Clark, business agent
of the union, and Thomas Cunning-'
ham. In a criminal action Judge
Neelen fined Cunningham $25 and
Clark $20. Smith has instituted suit
against them for $3,000 damages.
Galveston. Texas By 41 votes the
International Longshoremen's Asso
ciation of America refused to seat as
a delegate its former president,
Daniel J. Keefe, federal commissioner
of. immigration and naturalization.
The opposition to Keefe as a delegate
was alleged to be solely because he
is not actively engaged as a dock
Sharon, Pa. With the exception of

The pig Iron production from this lo
cality has increased 50 per cent, dur
ing the past four months. It was of
ficially announced that five of the 20
hot mills of the local plant of the
American Sheet and Tin Plate Com
pany will be in operation by Friday
of this week.
Denver, Col. At the convention of
the International Machinists onion in
this city next September, a general
movement will be started to secure
the eight-hour day throughout the
country. There will be nothing hasty
or rash in the demand, and a year
may elapse after the request before
the unions take steps to enforce it.
Loi'don. Eng. Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation
