A Detailed Statement of the Differ-
encea by Both Workmen and
OHICAOO , Juno 1. Twelve hundred
men at Irondulo mills , n few miles
south of this city , went on a strike
this morning. Mr. Jarrol ) , president
of the Amalgamated Association of
Iron workers , is expected to arrive to
day from the vast for consultation with
the men and manufacturers.
ST. Louis , Juno 1. A lack of har
mony among the employers and the
men on the question of wages has
caused the shutting down of the La
clcdo rolling mill , Helabackor forge
and Harrison wire works. All throe
closed this morning. The Nut and
Boll Co.'s works in East St. Louis
have also stopped for trio present.
CINCINNATI , 0. , June 1. All. but
two iron mills in this noiuhborhood
shut down this morning , the men re
fusing to work. Twelve hundred men
are ouc of work , which will probabiy
necessitate the closing of establish
ments dependent on the mills for a
supply of iron.
SPRINCI KIELU , 111. , Juno 1. At 6
o'clock this evening fires wore put out
in the rolling mills here , the men go
ing out and , locking up the doors. Up
to noon the proprietors believed the
strike would not occur , if at all , before
the Ijxh. Over 900 men are thrown
out J employment and neither opara <
ti flfnor employers have any idea
"ynon work will bo resumed. Every-
is orderly n
J rolling'mill in" this city'is idle to-day ,
/ all having refused to sign the scale

n ciation. The outlook indicates a long
< \ strike.

the mills , signed the scale this after-
A ttsburg dispatch (30th ( ) to The
Philadelphia Press says : The only
interesting feature of the iron , situa
tion is the question of the length of
the struggle which is certain to coni-
tnpnce on Thursday morning. Work
will prjbably bo continued in the
steel establishments , but private tele
gram * received to-djy contain assur
ances that in Pittsburg nnd through
out /ho / entire west work -vill bo sus
pended in the rolling mills. Thodespo
rate measures decided upon the Amal
ganuted association have added new
complicatioiii to the situationand man
ufacturers who before had resolved to
Zct on the defensive now openly favor
/in / aggressive movement. Said one of
the most prominent to-day : "If this
atato of olfaira keeps on , I shall bo in
favor of reducing the basis of the aca'o
to 2 conta instead of 2 , aa is the case
at present. The latter figure is too
high and should have been changed
long ago. As to the present situation ,
the iron men of this district are show
ing a moro determined and united front
than ever before , and it is impossible
to state how long the period of inac
tion which will begin on the 1st of
Juno will last. "
WHAT VKEHIDENT JARRKTT HOl'ES.
President Jarrott , of the Amalga
mated association , said : "I endorse
word of Swank in his state-
nts of the condition' of the iron
fcsk j " , and admitted tliat the best
clement of the association had been
overruled by the hot-heads. Ho
thinks the strike will not bo of long
duration , and is phinly hopeful that
after a month or two of idleness the
members of the Amalgamated will BOO
the injustice of their demand , and recede -
[ cede from the stand taken. Manu
facturers state that this ia the only
[ thing that will end the trouble , They
ire prepared to ahut down their mills
? or a year.
If the length of former determined
itruggles may be taken as & criterion ,
hey will likely have an opportunity
0 wait that length of time.
1 Business men expect a long struggle ,
ad on every hand there are evidences
t preparation. One representative
f an eastern jobbing establishment
'tated ' to-day that he usually sold
' 15,000 worth of goods every tune ho
iflitod this city , but during last week
is aales amounted to only $150 ,

jrkmon consider the break very sig-
Gcant , but the few manufacturers

CAUSE OF THE STRIKE ,
BOTH HIDES OK TUB CASE ,
. Louis Itepubllcan , May 80.
The Btnke of the iron workers last
wr lasted from Juno until October ,
lirjng which time the proprietors in-
aisled that their employes should con
tinuo work at PitUburg prices. At
the end of this strike the men resumed -
sumod work at prices they obtained
when they ceased"work. When they
went to work again at the end of the
strike in question , they agreed to con
tinuo their labor until Juno , -882 ,
under an agreement entered into in
Cincinnati , Tno Cincinnati agree
ment between manufacturers and
workmen , it is claimed , bound St.
Louis workmen , as St. Ljuis work
men at that time belonged to the
snmo district-tho third district.
This allegation is drniod , however ,
by the St. Louis workmen , * who claim
that they were not represented in
Cincinnati at the time the agrcoraonl
was niado. The Cincinnati agroemonl
reads as follows :
CINCINNATI , p. , Oct. 20 , 1881.
The following is the agreement on-
torcd into this day bptwnon the pro
prietors of rolling mills in Cincinnati
and vicinity , und the workmen in con
fcronco for that purpose : '
We , the proprietors of the rolling
mills in Cincinnati and vicinity , agree
to pay the prices ruling herb immedi
ately prior to Juno first ( Ij , 1831 , for
skilled labor , until June 1 , 1882 ; tmc
from then forever after the pricof
bhall bo the same OBJ ' may bo adopted
in Pittsburg , Pa.
In the oyont of no prices being
fixed as the Pittsbmt ? and vicinity
scale of wages on Juno 1 , 1882 , the
men hero are to continuo work at the
scales in force hero prior to .Juno 1 ,
1881 , and when a ecilo of wages bo
agreed upon at Pittsburg , said scale
of wages shall bo the wagon dcalo for
Cincinnati and vicinity. ' '
It is ngreod that where scrap and
cinder fix is used in boiling , fifty cento
per ton shall bo paid for boiling in ad-
tion to the price established where
cold or patent ere fix is used.
It is also agreed that the proprie
tors , in consecration of the work
men having accepted the i'ittaburg
scale of wages us above specified , the
proprietors nil furnish all the labor
as furnished by Pittsburg proprietors
to men working ; at rolls , furnaces or
other skilled work.
We oflrtify the above to bo correct.

of this change was to give the S/-
Louis division a vice president in this
vicinity in order that misunderstand
ing in the local lodges of the union
might be settled with less traublo and
uxponso. Prior to this arrangement
the St. Louis committee found it

The manufacturers say the men
have work d under the Cincinnati
agreement for some time to their own
advantage , yet they are determined to
strike for the simple reason that the
Pittsburo ; workmen have struck ,
PitUburg workmen demand an advance
of 50 cents per ton , and St. Louis
workmen place themselves in the field
demanding 50 cents advance en the
ton aboyo Pittsburg. The workers
who make this demand fortify them
selves by advancing arguments.
that the coal they use is inferior to
Pitteburg coal. The former fuel , they
claim , burns to an ash , while the latter
leaves in its wako cinders that must
bo picked from grates by great labor ,
The Laclodo mills are preparing to
shut down , and will take their invnl.
untary holiday with a large stock of
finished material on hand. In fact ,
according to the statement made by
those high in authority at the Laclodo
mills , they shut down thoroughly prepared -
pared to moot the demands that are
likely to bo made upon them for six
months to come. While the proprie
tors claim they are in bettor shape
than they ever were in the past to
combat a prolonged strike , the work
men say that their powers of endur
ance will enable them to stay out a
year , as they have a sinking fund of
8150,000 or $100,000. During the
first two weeks they are out the men
will receive no assistance whatever ,
but after that time they will bo ac
corded by the national union $4 a
week , individually. In the west there
are about 10,000 iron workers and in
the east as many more. This being
the case the $160,000 is not as great
a sinking fund for an emergency as
might bo supposed by those not fa
miliar with the vastneas of the army
of pensioners that will demand their
allowance of § 4 per week
WHILE THEY ARE OUT.
It has been ascertained that the
large mill at Wheeling , W. Va. , will
not join the strike , aa the demands of
the employes have boon acceded to by
the mill operators , This mill makes
light ; alioct iron , whioli happens to bo
in great demand at present. For this
reason , rather than bo forced from
the market , the Wheeling mills will
continue operations , while its other
competitors remain inactive. The
Lnclcdo mills manufacture Trails , all
kinds of ban , railroad spikes , street
car rails of various patorna , boiler
iron , light sheet iron , etc. Besides
the articles enumerated above , the
mills turn out castings for their own
uio and for outside customers. The
Laclcdo mills employ 020 men , nearly
half of whom have families * relying
upon them for support. About the
only mills m the vicinity of St. Louis
that will not join the strike are the
Holt and Iron company's mill of East
St. Louis and the Stcol works at C.T
rondolot. The mills that
WILL CKASE OPERATIONS
are the Laclodo , the Harrison wire
mills on Choutoau avenue , the Grauito
rolling mills , Holmbachor a forgo and
rolling mills and McDonald Brothers'
forgo and axle works. The Liclcdo
mill has worked its stocks off in raw
material thoroughly , and is well prepared
pared for a lock-out of many mouths ,
but Bomo of the other mills will feel
the blow mnro seriously.
Of course , it is generally admitted
that manufactured iron will advance
in the market during the strike , while
raw material will decline.-
Said a prominent mill owner to n
Republican reporter yesterday : "Wo
are willing to pay Pittsburg prices ,
but no moro , for the reason that wo
cannot afford to permit ourselves to
bo handicapped by eastern manufac
turers , At present wo can compote
with eastern manufacturers , but the
moment wo are compelled to pay
more for labor than Pittsburg pays ,
that moment wo will find our
selves handicapped. At the pros
( . nt time the mills of S
Louis supply Utah , California and
many of the territories with iron ,
which will bo supplied by Pittsburg
and eastern manufactories in general ,
if the cost of production is increased
in St. Louis. No , we can't afford it.
This fight is a fight ter existence with
ui. The moment it costs moro to
produca iron in a manufactured shape
in St. Louts than it does in Pittaburjr
and Cincinnati , that moment the iron
works of St. Louis will begin to de
cline. Fully sixty men in ono of the
largo mills of St. Louis are making
from $4 to § 25 per day and only work
nine hours a day. Notwithstanding
this they insist upon an advance. Wo
are doing all wo can for these men ,
and they are standing in their own
light by doing cyirything in their
power to retard the growth of the
manufacturing it1 tores ta of the west. "
Last fall business waH brisk , but on
the first of January , 1SS2 ,
IT BEGAN TO ( JET DULL.
Business full uway because railroads
stopped their construction work or
track systems and made an effort to
the work of iron workers in St. Louis
is more laborious than elsewhere is con
cerned , it can bo said , unofficially and
officially at the same time , that St.
Louis mill owners deny that such is
the case inasmuch as most of the fur
naces used at the Laclodo and other
mills are gas and air furnaces , in
winch little or no coal is consumed.
The furnaces in question are the most
modern in existence , being what are
known as the regenerative gas fur
THE OTHER SIDE.
A puddler in high authority and
skilled , bos this to say : "Thoy want
CO cents on a ton moro for boiling and
10 per cent , in the finishing depart
ment department over the Pittsbur ?
mills. They claim that it is moro
difficult to work , on account of the
inferior western coal which they are
required to handle. Pittsburgh coal ,
they maintain , is both hotter and
easier to work with than any other
fuel they have been called upon to
handle. The western iron , they al
lege , is harder , and the firca less in
tense than in other soctionB. Hence
their demands. "
In addition to facts already stated
the workingmen claim that St. Louis
manfactorios in shipping their iron tea
a western and "profitable market" are
much moro accommodating to their
purchasers than Cincinnati and Pitts-
burg. St. Louis ships , they claim ,
principally to Utah , California , Ari
zona , etc. Inasmuch as St. Louis
manufacturers have always paid 60
cents moro per ton for manufactured
iron than Pittsburg , the men claim
the advance to-day simply because
Pittabarg has increased her demands
50 cents on a ton. The demand of
the St. Louis mill employes appears to
bo arbitrary , yet they deny that such
Is the case.
Dealers in manufactured iron as
well as the raw material have their
word to say , The dealers who have
manufactured goods are jubilant , as
they maintain the stiiko will cause
their property to advance. The "raw
material" men , on the other hand , are
trembling , as they know their stock
will take a tumble. Bomo political
economists who have boon maintain
ing that the country has been afliictod
with an over-production of metallic
property will , of courae , maintain that
the strike will bo a blessing , as it will
give the country an opportunity to
readjust itself on the labor question ,
That is to say , it will teach men to
sock profitable sources of employment ,

CHICAGO , Juno 1. A terrible riot
occurred this evening at Brighton
Park , five miles scvth of this city ,
where the iron works of the Joliet
Iron and Stool company are located.
The company has been employing
men from Joliet , This evening while
Jfi workmen were on the train proceed
ing homo , about 100 strikers rushed
aboard the train armed with pistols ,
knives , clubs and strips of iron , and
commenced a murderous attack upon
all passongera. Judiro Pittsburg , ot
Pontiac , was shot through the hip and
dangerously wounded , Four colored
non-union men were terribly and
fatally beaten , and many passengers
Judge Pittsburg is judge of the
second district appellate court , and
was a passenger on the Chicago & Al

Ho is universally respected , and the
rioters certainly could have no spite
against him , but the hundred infuri
ated norkora belonging to the union
rushed madly through the carashooting
right and loft , and clubbing every
body or slashing thorn with knives
All the passengers worn more or leas
wounded , but none fatally , except
Judge Pittsbun ; and the four colored
non-union iron workers. Judge Pitts
burg was brought to this city , and
physicians probed unsuccessfully for
the ball which lodged in the illium.
Subsequently the judge was convoyed
on the midnight train to his homo in
a very critical condition.
The four colored men who wore so
terribly beaten wore also taken to
their homes at Joliet on the same
train , and will probably dio. It
Booms the object of the rioters waa to
intimidate the scabs who had taken
the places of strikers at the mills.
When the evening train first stopped
at Brighton Park station , several
rioters boarded the cars , and with
pistols intimidated the engineer to
hold the train until the murderous
work was accomplished , A largo
force of police repaired to the econo
later , ana at midnjght had arrested
Boveral of the rioters .
Eye-witnesses state the attack of
the rioters was so sudden and savage
that the wildest confusion provailnd
among the passengers. The hundred
rioters dashed into the smoking-car
