Opinion Prevails Agreement

Amalgamated Advisory Board Draws
Dead Line on RcporVvhi nnd Noth
ing Positive Is Obtainable Shaffer
and Williams Are Absentees.
Plttsburg. Sept. G. The prevailing
opinion in I'lttHburg IB that the great
BU'cl strike is practically Bottled , but
absolutely nothing positive can bu
lunrncd Iroin olthur sldu to the con
troversy. The day was spent by the
Amalgamated advisory board in secret
conference behind doora Hint were
guarded closer than ever before. The
newspaper "dead lino" was drawn
most efft'i'tiially. When the final ad-
JourmiHMit for the day ciunc , nt about
G:3j : ( p. in. , those who had been Insldo
headquarters refused to nay a word
In answer to Insistent questions , or
volunteered no statement.
When the meeting was over , It was
learned for the first tlmo that Presi
dent Shaffer had not been with his
colleagues during the afternoon BCS-
Blon. Secretary Williams also disap
peared shortly after the adjournment.
It was learned that at the request
of the conciliation committee Mr.
Schwab agreed to extend the tlmo for
the acceptance of his offer to this
evening. The advisory board of the
Amalgamated association will meet In
Plttsburg today to consider Mr.
Schwab's proposition. This , tt is un
derstood , differs from Mr. Ptyrgan's
proposition In only that It stipulates
the mills which the United States
Steel corporation had succeeded in
opening as nonunion mills should re
main nonunion , the company being
unwilling to abrogate the contracts
It lias made with the men now at work
In.tilioso mills.
The only approach to a statement
of the condition of affairs was made
by Trustee Pierce , who said it was Im
possible to accept the proposition
made by the steel corporation , as by
doing so some of the members of the
Amalgamated association would suf
fer. "It would bo unjust to our mem
bers , " said Mr. Pierce , "to accept such
terms. Wo have made no counter
proposition and still insist on the
terms made and are willing to arbi
trate. The commltteo that visited
President Schwab had no authority
from the Amalgamated association to
eettlo the dispute. The members were
acting on their own responsibility.
Ttyo strike is In the same position to
day , as It was before the conference
was held in Now York. The local sit
uation Is practically unchanged , but It
is in better shape than it was last
weak. We have made some gains and
are still confident that we will win.
It will be impossible for the combine
to operate its plants satisfactorily
without the aid of Amalgamated
men. "
Mr. Pierce would not say that all
negotiations had been broken off , and
his intimation that the association IK
willing to arbitrate would indicate
that all has not been abandoned.
Aside from the mysterious confer
cure , there was nothing much of a
startling nature transpired in this
city. The steel officials claim a \ > \K \
gain in the addition of 225 men at the
National Tube works at McKeesporl
making the total number nt work G25 ,
and accessions at the Pennsylvania
Tube works and Continental Tube
plant in this city. The strikers offset
this by claiming that the Demmlei
tin mill could not be started yester
day , as officially scheduled , because ol
the lack of men.
The only trouble reported from any
district yestor Bas that from Canal
Dover , whcreTMnnager Kl ! " the
Bheet steel njpttf vaa knocked down
nnd narrowly escaped severe treat
ment at the hands of a party of 'strllo
Advices from Canal Dover , O. , say :
"The attempt to operate the mills at
this place has been a failure. Two
mills started three days ago. Last
night the flres v ro drawn. The com
bine has darned for some \days to
have enough men to operate at least
four mills. The strikers have denied
this and declared Mt would bo impossi
ble to run the mills with the men in
the mills at present. It was learned
that there arc GO men within the mill
enclosure. "
