STATES STEEL COMPANY AIMS VITAL BLOW AT STRIKERS. !laat (ran Torn. Whose (men Sympathise With Strikers There are gravely -- important developments In tbe strilcs situation. Tbe United (states Steel corporation has moved decisively in Ha strike campaign with a peremptory order directing that the great Dewees-Woo- d plant at McKeesport, Pa , be dismantled and removed to the Kiskiininetaa valley. The Deweea- - Wood plant w as founded about forty years ago, and is one of tbe best known plants in Pennsylvania. It yards and mills cover between twelve and fourteen acres; it has employed 1,300 men at it busiest" times, and its cost i placed at 15,000,000 by officials of the steel corporation. It Isa blow at ruck at the vitals of Amalgamated association, and the consternation and dismay carried into the hearts of tlie striking employees at the mill was visible all over the city. Tbe business men say that the loss will be something which cannot be replaced. Many of tlie company officials are inclined to blame Mayor black's utterance for the move made by the bead of the combine. The mayors proclamation they aay, while it did not in itself indicate hostility to tlie trust, waa so twisted aud rniscou-strue- d throughout the country that it has done the town an almost irreparable injury in the eyes of the capitalists, who do not know the actual conditions. The steel officials declined to give any reason for the order, but it is openly stated that the pronounced sympathy of citizens and city officials at McKeesport with the strikers is responsible for it. Jt is also said that the plant of the National Tube company at McKeesport will beabardoned and the old Carnegie plan for a tube plant at Connaut, O., revived. On the orher hand, President Gom-per- a of tbe American Federation of Labor, after a two days conference with President Shaffer and his associates, has issued a formal atatement specifically pledging tlie federation to the moral and financial support of tbe Amalgamated association. His written review of the train of events leading up to the industrial quarrel sustain the course of the Amalgamated association, and declares that nothing remains for labor but to battle for the cause of uoiouiam.
