PiTTsnuno , Kept. 5. Agitation and
uneasiness prevails In the ranks of the
' strikers tonight , caused by the tip-
parently unfavorable developments of
the day. The leaders , however , pro
fess to be satisfied with present condi
tions and claim that ultimate victory
will be theirs.
Much was hoped for from the peace
conference In New York , but the an
nouncement of the failure to reach a
decision put a damper on those hopes.
Still many hold to the belief that the
matter now being up to the strike

President Shaffer's only remark was

adjournment without decision : "I

say no more on the subject. He said
further that tonight he would posi

men and would make no statement.
He said ho would be in his olllce as
usual In the morning , when he might

without comment by President Shaffer
of the amalgamated association.

"We the members of Crescent lodge of
A. A. ofl. S. and T. W. , assembled ,
denounce the statement made by J. D.
Hickey when he says that this strike
was instigated by President Shaffer
and Is not constitutional as absolutely
false and as not worthy of any eon-
sideration by the members of the A.

per cent of the mills of the United
States steel corporation are at work.
STKVB DAWSOX , President.
W. G. EVANS Secretary.
The above , together-with the telegram -
gram received by Mr. Shaffer today
from President Gompers of the Amer
ican federation , denying that there
was a meeting in Buffalo to consider
the charges made by Mr. ITickcy ,
would indicate that the charges have
The steel olllcials were I n a very con
fident mood last night and appeared
to think' the strike was effectually
broken and that only a few days more
will be required to make it a thing of
the post. The return of the 400 tube-
workers at MoKeesporl and the re
port that ten or more went in at the
Pennsylvania tube works- , and the
protection of Sheriff McKinley and
his seventy-five deputies at Demmler ,
'Where a start will be made tomorrow
morning , gave much weight to this
belief. Jn addition to these breaks
the steel olllcials claim increased num
bers at the Star , the Lindsay and Me-
Cutcheou , Painters and the Clarks
mills , and say other plants will now
be put Into service rapidly.
Organizer Schwartz of the Ameri
can federation , who organized the
Pennsylvania tube workers , called a
meeting of his men yesterday af ter-
noon , when it was decided that none
01 tne men wouiu return until Presi
dent Shaffer gave the word. Mr.
Schwartz said not a man ot the organ
ized tube workers at this plant had
pone to work and that the report that
150 of them had gone in yesterday was
false. A few laborers and repair men
areat work , putting the plant in or
der for work , but aside from these no
other workmen are in the mill.

TKXAKKAXA , .Tex. , Sept. 4. The
Ix men who held up the Cotton
" Belt passenger train at Eylau , Tex. ,
last night are still at large. The robbers -

kin creek and left them standing in

car and went live miles north , as the
Land car was found where the train
was stopped. After looting the mail
and express car the robbers returned
to the creek , mounted their horses
and again rode down the stream , thus
obliterating their trails.
The robbers secured one package of
- $10,000 and it is said the entire haul
was about $35,000. The express men
and the railroad and government of
ficials are very reluctant to discuss
At noon today the pursuing oMlcers
returned to Texarkaua and reported
they could not lind a siugle clue that
would show who the robbers were or
which way tncy went. This afternoon
a special train went to the scene of
the holdup , with Colonel O. K. Wheel

WASHINGTON , Sept. 4. 'It Is ascer
tained that on August 24 , during Sec
retary Hay's recent visit to Washing-
tJii , a telegraphic message was sent
to the minister at Caracas and Bogota
directing them to Inform the foreign
secretaries of Venezuela and Colom
bia of the distress with which the
president had heard or the likelihood
of a disturbance of the relations be
tween those two republics. Advert
ing to the possibility of the Influence
of the United States being exerted to
cimposc the pending questions , the
ministers wore directed to say that ,
while the relations of tills government
with both nations are equally inti
mate and friendly , and every oppor
tunity is taken to show the good will
we bear themtan offer of the president's
kindly offices lo arrange any. differ
ences which exist between Colombia
and Venezuela would be ineffective
without the acqulescnce of both. Nev
ertheless , inspired by the sentiments
which arc common to all the govern
ments of the American republics , the
United States would sincerely deplore
a breach of the amicable relations
that at this time happily exist be
tween the sister nations of the west
ern world , and would especially regret
any action by either of them which
might menace the security of transit
across the Isthmus or the neutrality
of I Us territory and thereby constrain
the government of the United States
to consider its responsibilities and
functions under existing treaty en
gagements with Colombia.

it , Neb. , Sept. 4. John and
William Walk , two Omaha Indians ,
brothers , who have the reputation of
being very quarrelsome and ugly ,
made an assault last Sunday on Little
Doer , another Omaha Indian , at his
home near the Omaha agency in this
county , and with a long willow pole ,
having several nails In the end of It ,
beat their victim into , Insensibility.
Ills head , eyes and face were bruised
and lacerated in a horrible manner
and probably his skull is fractured.
The doctor who is attending the In
jured man thinks it doubtful if lie
will recover and should he not the
ass illants will no doubt be tried for
murder. They were Intoxicated , it is
charged , on whisky obatained at Whll-

way home that they committed the
crime. Sheriff Daley of this county
arrested and brought them to this
place Monday , wiiero they are lodged
in jail awaiting a hearing before Uni

here and in the surrounding towns ,

the strike , and increasing the num
ber of men at the mills already in par
Public interest in the strike itself is
lagging , and the contest seems to have
settled down to an Issue of endurance.
Only the unusual incidents connected
with each day's doings receive notice
by those not directly affected by the
struggle. Evidences of impatience arc
cropping out on the side of the strik
ers , and fears that unlawful acts par
ticipated in by the strikers last night ,
and today about the Star tin plant
may multiply and spread to other
quarters. The olllcials of the Star
plant claim that yesterday the pickets
about their mill held up a special de
livery boy from the postofllco with a
letter for the oftlce while he was com
ing down Tweltth street and inspected
the letter before he was allowed to
proceed. The matter will be reported
to the postal authorities at once. It
is also charged that the strikers stoned
the company carriage on Pennsylvania
avenue yesterday morning , but did no
special dauiage to the occupants.
ATTACK A COI.OHKD MAN.
The aggressiveness of the strikers
was further demonstrated late yester
day afternoon , when a mob surround
ed William Jones , a colored man who
was mistaken for a non-union man
from the Star works. He made a nar
row escape from serious injury and
possibly death by the appearance of
Police Lieutenant Crossan , who came
to his rescue. Before Crossan could
secure additional aid he was almost
overwhelmed by the larire crowd that
had gathered. The prompt arrival of
a large force of ollicers promptly saved
Jones from being lynched , as the mob
appeared a desperate one , and many
demands were made that he be strung
During the parade most of the pick
ets were away from the Star mills , and
the company succeeded in securing
several new men. Of the lot that ar
rived In Plttsburg early yesterday
morning , It was said that a good many
of them were for the Demmlcr plant
in McKeesport and were now in that
plant where the operations are to be

KANSAS UITV , Sept. 3. Labor day
was marked by the largest and most
Imposing parade of labor unions ever
seen hare and by the participation of
William J. Bryan In the procession
and exercises. Eight thousand men
marched through the streets , grouped
in their unions , each union wearing a
distinguishing uniform. Mr. Bryan
occupied a carriage at the head of the
line and was cheered whenever recog
nized. The pavillion at the park was
crowded to suffocation. Mr. Bryan
took ifor his text the Bible verse ,
'Muzzle not the mouth of the ox that
treadeth out the corn. " He warned
his hearers against trusts and 'said
that their remedy was at the ballot
box. Mr. Bryan went in a carriage
from Electric park to Shawnce park ,
Kansas City , Kan. , where he addressed
an open air meeting of 10,000 persons.

MINNEAPOLIS , Sept. 3. Vice Presi
dent Roosevelt was the orator of the
day at the formal opening of the Min

Minnesota agricultural society. He
shook a thousand hands at a reception
following the exercises , was the guest
of the fair association at lunch on the
grounds and reviewed the Third In
fantry and Kirst artillery , Minnesota
national uuard. Colonel Roosevelt oc
cupied the Judge's stand at the race
track with General Miles , Archbishop
Ireland and Governor Van Santot
Minnesota. The grand stand was lit
erally packed and when Governor Van
Santln introducing Roosevelt , asked
the ladles to wave their handkerchiefs
nnd the men to give three cheers , the
result was a response which the vice
president will long remember. The
audience was responsive throughout
the vice presidents address.
The vice president In beginning his
address paid a high tribute to the
character and energy of his hearers ,
descended he said , from a race of pion
eers which had pushed westward Into
the wilderness and laid the foundations
for new commonwealths. The man
with axe and pick and plow , who , ho
said , had pushed to completion the
dominion of our people over the Amer
ican wilderness , had shown by their
qualities of daring , endurance and far

success in American life the law of
