A ^TICKLISH JOB.
That of Printing the Big Brooklyn
!v l '.' r ; Registry List.
New York, Nov. 3.—The managers
of the Metropolitan Job Printing com
pany are wondering, after an experi
ence that they had, if.it pays to run a
printing office. About- 800 compositors
went on strike, althongh they were get
ting full wages, and their action threat
ened the company with a forfeiture of
a bond of $40,000 for the completion of
the printing of the Brooklyn registry
lists. A timely order from Secretary
Ferguson of Typographical Union No.
6. sent the men hack to their cases after
they had bepn out an hour or so, but
the managers were not at ease until
evening, when the presses had rolled off
enough work to make reasonably sure
of the completion of the contract in
time to save the bond. •
This work is secured by competitive
bidding. It must be rushed along. The
company engnged 300 extra compositors
to get it out as qu ; ‘kly as it wjis want
ed. From tbe start the new composi
tors seemed to understand that they
were on special work and to appreciate
the importance to the company of hav
ing it done quickly. They began to de
mand extra pay for rush work. The
company yielded to'save dispute. The
men proposed to work all night That
meant double pay. The management
would not agree to it, whereupon it be
came evident that trouble was brew
At 10 o’clock in the morning the crisis
came when a delegation of the men
waited upon the superintendent aifd de
manded $3 per hour for the rest of the
job. Their demand wa3 refuse! with
the explanation that such wages for 300
men would leave the company witu a
large loss on the job. The men threat
ened to strike if they were not prom
ised that pay. When the management
again refused every one of the 800 laid
down his stick and went out.
A message was sent to the office of
Typographical Union No. 0. Secretary
Ferguson responded. After hearing
the company’s story he went among the
men. They persisted in their demands.
Finding that they would not be reasoned
with, Mr. Ferguson peremptorily or
dered them hack to work. They re
turned, hut many of them were so sul
len about it that the managers were
kept in a nervous condition all day.
They felt $40,000 richer when the pack
ages from the press room, piled shoul
der high ia the office, showed that the
work was moving along as planned.
"This experience,” said Commodore
Tooker when the danger had passed,
"has nearly convinced us that it does
not pay to take immense contract jobs
with bond attachments —TuS’caprice
of men who were well paid and who
came to ns glad to get work might have
ruined us. We will let big short time
contracts alone hereafter, I think. ”

Boston, Nov. 3,—A member of the
