PimuURO , May 4. The action cf
the conference committees of the Iron
manufacturers and the Amalgamated
association yesterday In adjourning
eiuo die without any satisfactory
agreement having been reached makes
a strike on Juno lit at this tlmo ap
pear Inevitable. Both sides are firm
and exoress determination to hold
out. The committee of iron manu-
factuiors consider their work com
plete , and say that If the workmen
desire another conference they will
have to make the request and another
commltteo bo appointed.
Mtnufaoturora say that they cannot
run the mills with a profit at the pres
ent wfs and prefer to shut down
rather than sign the scale presented
by the amalgamated association. In
event of a strike the manufacturers
claim that their strength will be
greater and that of the worktngmon
weaker than last year. The trade Is
such that suspension would bo a
benefit , bee Id PS slnco the non-union
plants have started up all over the
country and ars running snccetsfully
and If a strike oconrs these could bi >
relied upon to supply pressing de
mands tor an indefinite time unless a
radical Improvement of trade oconrs
On the other hand the employees
say that the trade is not as bad
as the iron masters would have the
public and them bollevo , and Instead
of being weaker they would bo
stronger than when the last strike
occurred , the reduction proposed be
ing so general as to cement the ranki
and prevent desertion.
In the mlnais' strike the only now
feature to day was the returning to
work of the men In one pit at the
reduction , Ono of the tfiblals says
that the action of those few will have
no effoot upon the general result , as a
break is Insignificant , and that It must
bo expected that a small number of
weaker ones would bo found among
so macy strikers.
