TUBE MEN ANXIOUSWhat Will Amalgamated Do With

'Sympathetic" Strikers?


Meanwhile Even v Microscopic Ex-amination Would Disclose

No Olive Branch.

Pittsburg, Aug. 27.The steel strine

situation was featureless to-day. Nosooner are rumors spread of negotia-tions for another peace conferencethan both sides hurry deny theaccuracy of the reports. In themeantime, the leaders of tl*e work-ers assert that they are constantlymaking fresh inroads upon the mills ofcombine* while on the other hand the |great steel combination officials announceplacidly that In every Instance wherethey have attempted to start one of theirplants they have succeeded and that theycan get all the men they want.

That success has attended their ef-forts is evident at Wellsville, Painters'mills, Clark's and Lindsay & McCutch-eon's. The first three named are run-,ning practically full to-day and new menare being taken on every day. Fifty ad-ditional men were added to the force atPainter's yesterday and several addi-tions to the force at Lindsay &McCutcheon's were made this morning, jThe management of this plant expects to jresume in all departments within a week ior as soon as the new boilers can be con- Inected up. The Carnegie upper and lowermills and the works at Homestead andDuquesne are running with the usualcomplement of men and there are no in-dications that tee strikers will succeedin getting the employes to join them.It is understood an effort will be made Ito-night to put on a third shift at the ii tar Tin Plate mills and that - the menliave been engaged.

Anxious to Know.

Labor officials and workmen represent-ing the Continental and PennsylvaniaVube company of Pittsburg and the Na-tional Tube company of McKeesport werein sesion all day yesterday discussing !Lie strike. It was finally decided to aski resident Shaffer tor a formal expres-sion of the altitude of the Amalgamated iuaeociation towards the workers who are |on a sympathetic strike and who, it is !understood, have struck without ordersfrom their lodge leaders. The workmen jdesire to know what will become of them jin case of a settlement and whether the jAmalgamated association will include !them in future agreements.

The striking machinists of the Na-tional Tube company have been asked, it iis said, to return to work in order to)!make extensive repairs to the machinery. ]This move was received by the mer- !chants of McKeesport with considerabale !joy. The machinists are considering the irequest and will act definitely in a dayor two. The works were in steady opera-tion before the strike for more than a!year and extensive repairs are necessary. !

So far no plans have been laid for the \resumption of operations in the Tube !plants and so far as known there is no Iintention of. starting up in the immediate !future. At the Demmler works of theAmerican Tin Plato company the fires are jstill kept up, but no attempt has been jmade to resume. Manager Pittock claims !to have the promise of a number of mento return when wanted. ,

Galesburg, 111.. Aug. 27.Mrs. MaryLark, a negro prophetess, caused a stam-pede in the African Methodist church herelast night. Mrs. Lark had been appeal-ing fervently to a large congregation torepent of their sins and there had beenbut few "amens." Finally, shouting atthe top of her voice she denounced Gales-burg for its wickedness and hard-hearted-ness.

"I foretell," she screamed, "the de-struction of Galesburg in the near future.In Tennessee I predicted the overthrow ofa town, and in a few hours the Lord 'senta floo.d and the streets were filled withdead bodies."

As Mrs. Lark said this a vivid flash oflightning dazzled her audience, which wasalready highly excited. Thunder roaredand a dark cloud was seen through thewindows. The entire congregation brokefor doors and windows and in five minutesnot a soul was left in the neighborhood.While no one was hurt in the jam therewere narrow escapes.

A year ago he became a memberof a Boston company, and soon after hisremoval to this city suffered an epilepticfit, caused, as the physicians said, by toogreat mental strain. Four weeks ago Mr.Morse and his wife went to Fitchburg.Mr. Morse was ill from overwork, and onSaturday he developed unmistakable signsof insanity. His wife is heartbroken.
