Closing Chicago Building Material
Supply Houses and Yarda Will
.... , Be Widely Felt .....'
CHICAGO, June 26. Business in
many parts of the country probably
will suffer ag a result of thto shut
down In this city's building industry
which, ordered by allied building
and material interest as a war meas
ure against striking carpenters, went
into effect today James Pryor, a
member of the press committee of
the employers, said he had tele
graphed out of town concerns to can
cel orders and stop consignment al
ready on their way to Chicago.
The shutdown will not become general
for a week or more. It wa said. In some
case where It needed only the orfer to
top machinery it took place today; but
lb other, where perishable goods are
handled, there may be a continuant for
several days. Employers would venture
no definite statement a to the n"mber
Of men involved, but the estimate t anged
between IfiO.OO and 800,000, with approxi
mately or.e-quarter of the dry's -ware
earner dlreotly or indirectly affected.
Herbert Baliou. a carpenter contractor,
waa stabbed, it Is thought fatally. In a
dispute early today with" a man who con
tended that the carpenters' demand for
" oenta an hour waa Justified.
Predict Great Labor War.
Th ahutdown I regarded by contrac
tor, and labor leaders a the beginning
of one of the greatest labor wars In re
cent year. The action wa taken at a
meeting last night of representative of
allied bulldtng and material interest a
an answer to th referendum vote of
16,000 striking carpenters, who overwhelm
ingly defeated the proposal to arbitrate
all questions In dispute.
Th carpenter have been on a strike
since April 80. Th men demanded a
wage Increase of from cent to 70 cent
per hour.
By" mean of th shutdown th em
ployer, It wa said, hope to prevent the
independent carpenter contractors from
getting supplies and thus throw out xt
work th Ki.OnO carpenter, who are work
ing under Individual agreeroenU.

Ben Stutheit, suspected of being "the

of any connection with the case through
word received by the Omaha police rom
Broken Bow. J. M. rem'ng. a farmer o
Cuser county, positively asserts that
Stutheit wu working for him on th day
of the murler. The' police have been
holding the man owing to his not being

He will probably be turned over to some
Institution for examination a to hi
