income to meet the increased cost of
living. Therefore, it should be the ef
fort of all to establish and maintain
i reasonable basis of prices other
wise the government must interfere."
The attitude of the corporation on
prices, Mr. Gary added, "has had con
siderable Influence In preventing in
creases in the general selling prices
of steel, although some (manufac
turers) have made them."
"Moreover, it is believed that, the
selling prices of most of the diverct
fied products of the corporation, for
the present at least, are high enough,
thoughjt is pertinent to say that
when, the actual value of the proper
tlea and volume of business of the
carporation are considered, the net
return Is at least moderate."
Reviewing last year's steel strike,
Mr. Gary said:
Stands for Oieii Shop
"We stand for the open shop, which
permits a man to work when and
where he pleases, on terms mutually
agreed upon, whether he does or does
not belong to a labor union.
"ff do not . combat labor unions
as such. We, of course, acknowledge
the natural right of labor to organ

isation should be subjected to govern
mental control and regulation like
other organisations. Discrimination

Interests of the general community."

Butte, Mont., Apr. 19, The strike
called yesterday by the Butte branch
of Metal Mine WoHkers Industrial Union-No.
800,4. W. W., for $7 wage and
six hour Jay was put into effect in ie
Butte district this morning. Pickets to
the estimated number of 800 men turn
ed back miners on the way to work
with the result that operations in many
of the mines are suspended. About 30
per cent of the usual force of miners
reached the mines and where the crews
were large eough to permit operations
to go on they were lowered. For the
most part work is confined to proper
ties on the east side where the miners
arrived at the shafts before the picket
ers got busy. Hundred of miners tele-!
phoned their shift bosses that they had
been turned back from work. About
13,000 men are employed in the var
ious mines of Butte and of that num
ber 8000 are in the employ of the
Anaconda Copper Mining company.
Plckots Busty Early.
Under the leadership of men'of for
eign birth, plcketers at an early hour
stationed themselves on North Main
street, on Anaconda road, and on other
thoroughfares leading to the mines. As
miners with buckets reached these
streets they were turned back. Several
streetcars loaded with miners were
stopped in Centervllle and the men
were dragged from the cars and sent
down the hill. In several cases min
ers were beaten by plcketers.
No attempt was made by either offi
cers from the sheriff's office Orthe
police force to protect the men who
wanted to fro to work. No arrests were
made. At the police station and at the
office of the sheriff it was said this
morning that no complaints had been
No demands have been presented by
the strikers to-the mining companies.
Action Follows Meeting,
Today's strike followed action taken
yesterday by members of the I. W. W.
and One Big Union held at Finn hall,
headquarters of the Industrial Work
ers of the World. Arrangements were
made Inst night to picket the mines
arid organization perfected,. Both meet
ings were attended by crowds that
were in very large part composed of
Finns and others of foreign birth. The
men were addressed by I.W.W. leaders
some of whom had only recently ar
rived in Butte and were not miners.
I. W. W. songs were sung and I. W. W.
literature was distributed. This morn
ing circulars calling on miners to
strike were distributed throughout the
city. These circulars bore the name
of Nick Radlvoeff, secretary of the lo
cal branch of I. W. W. mine workers,
and contained a statement as follows
of demands agreed to yesterday.
"Release of all Industrial and politi
cal prisoners, six hour day from collar
to collar, minimum, wage scale of $7
a day for all workers in the mining in
dustry, abolition of the rustling Sard,
abolition of contract and bonus and so
called efficiency system, two men to
work together on all machines and two
men to work together in all workers."
Danger of "Gas"
Famine Here Is
Held To Be Over
With shipments of gasoline arriv
ing here over the week end, local
gasoline dealers today declared that
the danger of a gasoline famine -in
Salem seems to have passed. Each
dealer representing the four com
panies today asserted that they .have
recruited their supplies, and have an
almost normal amount of gasoline on
hand - Because of the general short
age of gasoline throughout the coun
try, however, local dealers urged gas
oline consumers to continue to use as
little as possible, and to avoid buying
huge amounts. This la necessary,
they aatd, to insure mors equitable
distribution among consumers.
