The United States Steel corpo- ration in re-opening mills closed by the first strike call to show its in- dependence of unionism and gathering strength wherever it may to lighten the effect of the general strike or- der and the Amalgamated associa- tion bends its energies to the exten- sion of its membership and to ob- tain the support ot co-operation of the American Federation of Labor. The general strike order becomes ef- fective on Saturday night and the claims put forth on oltbur side as to the results that ,wlll accrue from It are widely at variance- Officials of the steel company admit that thousands of men will obey the or- der of President Shaffer, of the Amal- gamated association, and go out but they positively deny tbtat the tie-up will bn they point to their success in re-opening four mills that wore and say that they have strong holds at points where the Amalgamated .claims the greatest strength.

The Rev. Katt, of Terre Haute, Delivers a Scholarly Argument Against It. Thursday's session oC the Lutheran synod meeting at St. Paul's church opened with a prayer service, followed by hymns by 'the congregation. There a full attendance of delegates. The chief feature of the day's pro- gram was the paper read by the Rev. Katt. of Torre Haute, on the subject of This paper dealt at length on the question and was alto- gether a comprehensive and scholarly definition of socialism as it exists. In the course of his address the Rev. Katt said: "Socialism is essentially commun- ism. Socialists all have this in com- mon, that they are all opposed to the individual ownership of property. It their ideas of revolutionizing affairs were carried out we would have a new state and the classes worth! be ar- rayed against each other. The danger of socialism liqs not so much therein that they seek to ulloviale the suffer-' ings of two poor labor but in this, that they tell him to abolish' and destroy the present order of things. They ad- vocate little work and few hours of work; more games and more amuse- ments. Yet reason tells us that labor is necessary, yea, almost a condition of life. Socialism carried out in prac- tice would not only destroy labor but also reveionee and regard for the scriptures and the government." The second paint of tho Rev. Knit's argument was t.o show that the doe- trlno of socialism could not be carried out Men are not equal but, unequal, therefore there is no greater difficulty than that ol making .unequal things equal. This might do if all men were exemplary Christians but they would needs be exemplary without passions or human nature. So- cialists claim to be better Christians than most orthodox believers. They appeal to the Bible. Yet thei question with them i snot whether their posi- tion be just or right but whether it is profitable. They call Jesus a great socialist and claim that the first ehurch in Jerusalem was a commrin- istic society, but on looking closer we find these statements to be a great perversion of facts. When Christ speaks ot the poor He does not mean those j poor in worldly goods, but those spirit- ually poor. For His gospel is for all creatures. Socialists say "Thine is mine." Christ says "Mine is thine." The afternoon session was taken up with'a report from the Rev. H. Wesoloh, of Cleveland, a member of tho mission commission of tho Mis- souri synod for the middle west. In i general the report showed that the I progress of-the mission work in this j field, including the states of Indiana, Ohio and a part of Kentucky, was en- jcouraglng. It was decided to drop j New Albany from the list ot stations, these being considered an unsatisfac- tory point to work from. Tho sum ot appropriated to carry on I this work the coming year. Last regular church services were held and to-day the subject of "Labor and Trades Unions" will be discussed. Tho meeting of the synod will last until next Tuesday and much import- ant work is yet to be done.

JOSEPH, Mich., Aug. confessional has been the means of saving worth of jewels to an Anderson, Ind., firm of jewelers. Wil- liam Washburn, president of the jewelry company, came here to-day from Chicago, bringing with him the tray of jewels returned to him by a Catholic priest who had received them from the penitent thief. The thief and his whereabouts are known, but Mr. Washburn thinks the man' fully penitent and will not prosecute him. On July S last tho jewelry house of William Washburn Co., of An- derson. Ind.. was entered by burglars in the night and a. trap of expensive diamonds was taken, along with other plunder. There were absolutely no clows.

Seymour, of the local detective force, has disclosed the identity of the man whom the police department has in custody on suspicion of being im- plicated in the robbery of worth ot gold bullion from the Selby Smelter works at Vallejo Junction. The suspect is John Winters, 37 years- old, a former employe of the smelting company. Captain Seymour also out- lined the evidence on which Winters Is being held as follows: "A man's cap which was found in the railroad tunnel last Tuesday morning has been positively identified as a head covering worn by Winters, and to strengthen this fact, there is the further one that the suspect has been wearing a new cap ever since the'time of the robbery. He -explain his loss of the old one by saying that it blew away. "Tho cover of the tunnel excavated by tho thieves was constructed of laths upon which some cloth was fas- tened with tacks of a peculiar pattern, and tacks similar to these were found to-day In Winters' cabin. Portions of lath similar to those composing tho framework oC the cover have been found at the same place. "A pistol owned by Winters and] found In his cabin In covered with mild which corresponds exactly with, the earth taken from the tunnel. "In the tunnel wo'found cubes of peculiar chalk which bill' evidently been used to smother thB grinding sound made by the drill, by which the floor plate1 of the vault hail been, bored, and pieces of chalk ex- actly like them were discovered In Winters' residence. "In the cabin was also found a new implement designed to cut gas A small electric battery and a tiny electric bulb, the latter being cov- ered with dirt, similar tfc that in 'the tunnel under the vault was found in tha cabin. "Winters had boon seen late at night in the vicinity of the railroad tunnel six or seven .times by penons who had occasion to pass that stoutly claims he knows nothing whatever about the robbery. The theory upon which tho detect- ives are now working U that tho roti- licry was executed by one man only. It is thought that the two bars of gold found on the water's edge were placed there designed for the purpose- of creating the impression that the gold had been carried away In a boat. On this hypothesis a strict search is be- ing made, near the vicinity ot the rob- bery for the stolen gold.
