Industries Coul Miners mid Owners Kind No Common Ground to Meet Upon CHICAGO May great purarle labor Thursday seems to have been the signal for action among thu dissatisfied workmen of this city and now the ranks of the actual strikers have been swelled to twice the number that was on strike Wednesday The most unfortunate feat ure of the situation is that the bulk of the uew recruits cornea from that portion of the city called the black road where so much turbulence took place in 1886 and if signs count for anything they are ready for the same scenes this year No sooner were the men out of the shops than the latter were picketed and the word went the rounds that no man should work This spirit pervaded the girls and women em ployed and those who hung back yester day they were a majority of the promptly bulldozed into going out with the rest Mulders Lead the Movement The first to strike were the molders at the Chicago Malleable Iron works where 700 men banked the fires and quit Their demand is eight hours a day and pnyand ahalf for qvertirne The other employes of the concern then struck out of sympathy The Deering Reaper works next fell into line and the Illinois Steel companys men wpuld have quit but the cornpauy conceded the demands The men m the Wells French Cos car works the Ajax Iron works and several other iron manufactories also quit work to the num ber probably of 2000 more WoodWorkers Follow Suit Tiiese man had hardly been heard from when the planingmill men started the ball but the strike was not general less than 500 men going out The furniture factory men also took the strike fever and several factories had to closedown pending negotiations The men employed at the Goodwillle box factory struck for eight hours At noon their demands were ac ceded to and they returned to work The men at the Cooper Lumber companys yards were also victorious The firm agreed to grant the eighthour day and the men went to work at noon Lumler Men Growing Restive Trouble is brewing in the lumber yards ami the prospect is that unless grauted eight hours and more pay the lumber thousand quit work If these men strike it will shut down work in most of the yards and tieup all the southwestern lumber trade The union waiters are also threatening to strike unless certain demands are com plied with Four hundred men employed by Demma Sc Durkiis furniture factory struck for eight liouro Seven hundred men em ployed by the Cottage Organ company are also affected by the strike fever and re fuse to work until granted the eighthour day IUtle Progress with the Carpenters The carpenters strike is still on and the situation remains exactly the same as when the arbitration committees were ap pointed At a meeting yesterday after noon tiie bosses conceded eight hours but when it came to granting 40 cents an hour there was a hitch as there was also in the apprentice question While discussing the latter question the subject of the ability of the uew bosses association to employ enough men to justify the carpenters in completing the negotiations was brought up The carpenters insisted that the bosses furnish a guarantee to employ 5000 men within thirty dtiys To this the bosses ob jected 3eeision of tho Umpires The umpires decided in favor of the strikers limiting the number it is under stood to 4000 men The carpenters pro tested and finally demanded a statement fropi the bosses showing exactly what each could do They were not prepared for this and ilnally after a heated discus sion the conference adjourned to meet to day The bosses held a meeting last night aucl it is understood completed arrangc rnents for the conference The umpires in these negotiations are Judges Tuley Briggs and McConneli Other Strikes Settled The Garden City Springs works compro mised with their men by granting them an eighthour day with uiue hours pay and the Morgan Sash Door and Blind company settled with their employes on a similar basis A strike at Maxwell Bros Box factory was settled by the employers agreeing to consider the grievances of their employes at an early date They are now working eight liocirs No Grievances Formulated Everything was quiftt on tlw black road at latest reports The striking mold ers have made effort to procure a meet ing with the employers the latter are in absolute ignorance of what is demand ed The bulk of the men also do not seem to know their own ruiud and say that they struck because ordered by their lead ers to do so ThD whole affair has the appearance of being a simple case of strike fever The authorities apprehend no fur ther disturbance but the neighborhood is well patrolled by officers and any incipi ent outbreak will be speedily repressed NO WORK FOft COAL MINERS The Men iind Operators Fall to Patch Up mi Agreement CHICAGO May will be no more coal dug in any of the northern nor in some of the southern coal districts of Illinois for an indefinite period of time This is the result of the three days confer ence between the operators and miners which has been in progress at the coal exchange in the Temple Court building When the joint committee met Thursday morning it was thought that all it had ip do to bring about aii settlement of all differences between yie two parties and so prevent any striSe dAiring the com ing year was to adoptinfi profitsharing system An Important Omisftiop During the night however the operators discovered that they had left out of their calculation the daylaborers and if ttey too had to have a share of the profits at the figures upon which the plan ifas based there would be no profit left satisfactory to the mineowneia After three hours of discussion the committee through A L Sweet reported to the convention ft had been unable to accomplish anything Prvsident Rae said the profitsharing sys tem was a success in other states and he hoped it would bo adopted here The dia ctvssion lasted for two hours and then the joint convention udjournecl sine die tittle Hope for a Compromise The miners went into executive sessioj 3nd after four hours deliberation Strike They faoee t9 rebjjen tions and can do so as soon ae they can secure the cooperation of the southern miners They will lay the whole matter before the executive board of the National union and their decision will determina whether or not the strike will be pro onged The operators and miners of the Indiana bituminous fields were present at the convention but took 110 part They met and decided that they could not give an advance in price for mining The Irreconcileable Julian NEW YOPK May Most was at work all day Thursday in The Freiheit office and took no part in any of the labor demonstrations Before him upon a desk at which he labored were two gallowses reminders of Chicago He said he would not attend the meeting in Union Square This is a scheme of capitalists entirely this whole eighthour business Most said It is all stuff aud nonsense Politicians only are anxious for aworkday of eight hours because they believe they can get the workingmeus vote if they preach eight hours It is not so much a question of hours as it is the overturning of the present condition of society No make shifts will do The whole thing hHis got to go No halfway methods will bs per mitted when the Anarchists begin work Situation at Milwaukee MILWAUKEE Wis May yesterdays developments indicate the final outcome the eighthour movement iu Milwaukee will result in a victory for the carpenters The strike which it was thought might occur yesterday did not materialize the change from thu tenhour system to thu eighthour system was effected with out any excitement and without any pub lic demonstration whatever There will still be some uncertainty however until after the massmeeting of tho unions to be held Sunday evening at the West Side Turner hall Apprehension ut Boston BOSTON Mar is now feared that there will be a general strike iu all the buildiug trades or at least n very serions

ancl testi fied that one night during his illness the doctors gave him up saying he could not live twentyfour hams but after they left he went down stairs and ate a heaity meal He afterward Mrrote a letter to the doctors thanking them for their opinion The testimony for the defense thus far has been very sitrong and public opinion is less severe against Mrs Vandorgrift than it was Hoard To Be the StlinUurtlBearcr MILWAUKEE AVis May Payne of the Hepubliean state committee was asked yesterday what the course of his on the Bennett law would be He said I do not know the central committee mny recommend I have no doubt that such a course will be mapped ont as every Republican in the state may follow without a sacrifice of one iota of principle I should suppose Mr Hoard would be the party candidate for govern or I have no reason for believing other wise The position of Hoard on the Ben nett law is well known Not Drifting Wider Apart NEW YORK May Heralds cor respondent says he is able to positively deny the statement telegraphed from Washington City to the effect that the governments tbe United States and Great Britain are drifting wider apart on the Bearing sea question He says he

the annual dinner of the Butler club Thurday even ing Gen Benjamin P Butlar made a lengthy speech which was devoted almost wholly to the present alleged deplorable financial condition of the farmer of the country He referred to the Farmers Alliance and said that with its formidable proportions if held together it will be ir resistible It claims to be nonpolitical but if it is successful it will destroy both political parties and become a political party itself The general compared the condition of the farmer as a workman with that of a carpenter showing that while the farmers profits would be for his crop the carpenter for a less ex penditure of time and energy would get fflCO figuring upon the basis of the present value of corn within twentyfour hours ride of Chicago A Financial Cyclone Predicted Referring to the mortgage debts of the farmers Gen Butler said that taking simply the agricultural lands of the west ern states the mortgages amount to the stupendous sum of 3450000000 the in terest on which is at rates averaging from 7 to 9 per cent The payment of these mortgages is simply impossible and they never will bo paid for the simple reason that as all statistics provethe average prof its on farming industries are only between 4 and 5 per cent The general presented some other startling statements showing the hopeless condition of tho farmers and predicted a financial cyclone among them before many years Propositions liiilicnleil He ridiculed the project of the govern ment building storehouses and loaning the farmer money on his garnered crops The storage certificates given by the gov ernment would be bought up by speculators who would thus con trol the market for the grain as they do now He concluded by saying that when tho bill was introduced in the senate that the government loan the farm ers to relieve them from their financial difficulties he calculated that the full amount would only pay twothirds of a mill on each dollar of western farm mortgage debts alone or in other words would only pay the interest on those mort gages for five days A fmmly Auditor In Trouble CoLrjinrs O May state auditor has hud investigated the
