in the melons and extracting there

New York, Oct. 1. Ten thousand
members of local printing trades
unions employed in 250 local plants,
which publish virtually all the trade
journals and magazines issued here
and a large percentage of the books,
were forced out of work by a simul
taneous "lockout" and "strike." This
action follows the refusal of the em
ployers to grant a 44-hour week and
a weekly increase of $14 in all wage
The most important development
was the strike of 450 compositors in
support of the striking printers and
in defiance of the International
Typographical Union, which, with
the other- international bodies, has
denounced the strike and "outlawed"
the striking pressmen.
The "lockout" of printers was or
dered by the printers' league section

County Attorney Says He Will
Hasten Trials of Men Arrest
ed, Charged With Participa-
T tion in Sunday Lynching.
NAMES ARE DRAWN FOR
SPECIAL GRAND JURY
Four Alleged Leaders of Van

lice in Roundup.
A large mass of information
against men alleged to have par
ticipated in the riots of Sunday
night yesterday was placed in the
hands of County Attorney Shot
well, the police, city officials and
Deputy County Attorney Coffey
said yesterday that 500 men and boys
may be indicted for participation in
the riots of last Sunday night.
No time has been set for ar
ranging those already under arrest.
They are all being held without bail
and may be so held until the grand
jury meets next Wednesday.
Names Are Drawn,
The judges of the district court
have drawn the 23 names of grand
jurymen from which the 16 who will
serve will be taken.
"I shall proceed with thesCprose
cutions with all possible speed,"
said Mr. Shot well. "The men now
being arrested will be put through
the ordinary legal process of ar
raignment in police court, including
the taking of their pleas and the
binding over of them, to the dis-:
trict court if the evidence in the
respective cases is sufficient.
"Then they will either give bond
or be held in the county jail.
Work On "Informations."
"Procedure will be by means of
'informations' : up to the time the
grand jury meets, a week from to
day. After that the grand jury will
return indictments directly on evi
dence offered in each case.
"The most flagrant cases will be
pushed to trial as rapidly as possi
ble. Trial will be delayed, how
ever; because of the burning of the
court house which caused a post
ponement of the October term of
court for four weeks.
"There are also at present from
ISO to 175 felony cases awaiting
trial and from 30 to 40 of these are
held in jail and can demand trial
before the riot cases.
"The unprecedented number of
criminal cases have all accumulated
this summer. Last June there were
only four or five felony cases on
Various Riot Charges.
"The charges to be filed against
the rioters will be arson, assault
with intent to do great bodily in
jury and murder, the latter for the
persons who actually did the lynch
ing." The criminal court room on the
fourth floor will be used for the
trials of the riot cases. This is now
occupied as a temporary office for
the county treasurer. But the treas

No Change Noted in
Steel Strike Situation
In Pittsburgh Region
Pittsburgh, Pa., Oct. 1. Nothing
developed in the steel strike in the
Pittsburgh district Wednesday ma
terially changing the situation.
Strike leaders and their organizers
showed the usual activity in their
campaign to further cripple the big
plants in operation in this territory.
Steel company officials had little in
formation to impart except the daily
claim that more men are constantly
applying for work each day.
The Carnegie company maintains
that its big works at Homestead,
Duquesne, Braddock and Clairton
continue to increase their produc
tion. Reports that men are return
ing to work in increasingly larger
numbers also came from points out
side of Pittsburgh and vicinity.

OPEN SHOP SOLE
ISSUE AT STAKE
Chairman of U. S. Steel Cor
poration Tells Senate Com
mittee He Won't Yield.
Washington, Oct. 1. Declaring
that the question of the open shop
the right of a man to work ir
respective of whether he was a
member of a labor union was the
sole issue in the nation-wide steel
strike, Judge Elbert H. Gary, chair
man of the board of the United
States Steel corporation, told the
senate investigating committee that
his corporation would never yield.
Even now, he said, the strike is
"There was no reason for this
strike," said Judge Gary. "The men
did not want it. It was forced on
them from the outside by the or
ganizers of labor unions. The open
shop is the question here the right
to bring about fullest production
with only the interests of the em
ploye, the employer and the pub
lic in sight."
Labor leaders, he told the com
mittee, were seeking to unionize all
industry in the country. Should
their efforts be successful, he as
serted, industrial decay would fol
low. "It means the condition I fear
England is in today," he added,
"though I have hopes it will come
out of it."
Judge Gary will be examined
again Thursday. He gave way for
an hour to several employes of the
corporation's mills, who told the
committee they knew of no reason
for the strike. All agreed that the
men who voluntarily responded to
the strike call were mostly foreign
ers and one of them, John J. Mar
tin, a Youngstown machinist, at
tacked the leaders of the national
steel workers' committee.
"I think John Fitzpatrick (chair
man of the workers' committee)
with Wm. Z. Foster (secretary of
the committee) as an able assistant,
head a band of buccaneers who will
overthrow this government if they
are not stopped," said Martin, who
explained that he himself formerly
was a union man. They were en
gaged, he said, in "scuttling the
American Federation of Labor." -

Him Out of the Box.
Cincinnati, Oct. 1. Cincinnati to

was the unanimous choice toninht.
He not only held the White Sox
to six scattered hits and really de
served a shut out, but rolled up a
batting average of 1.000 for himself.
If there was anything in the game
that was better than his hurling it
was his work with the stick. Two
of his three hits were mighty
triples. He drove in two runs,
scored one himself and was the in
stigator of the mad romping of Red
legs around the bases in the fateful
fourth. The Sox were in the fight
up to that time, but when he pro
pelled the ball into "No Man's
Land" in left , center and romped
around to third, while two scored
ahead of him, the heart seemed to
go out of the American leaguers.
Sad Day for Cicotte.
It was a sad day for Eddie Ci
cotte. leading pitcher of the junior
league. Never before was so de
cisive a beating administered to the
Michigan wonder. He was simply
pounded out of the box. Five runs
were recorded against him in the
fourth before Manager Gleason gave
him the sign to retire. His team
mates gathered round him and

mond with his head hanging.
Roy Wilkinson succeeded him on
the moundy while the last inning
was pitched by Grover Loudermilk,
but it made little difference to the
National league champions. They
kept the air fairly clogged with fug
itive hits, while the Sox fielders ran
their legs off after terrific flies.
After the game Garry Herrmann,
owner of the Reds, who came pant

stand, stopped long enough to" re
