Getting Ready to Strike.


PITTSBURG, Pa., Dec. 10. The flint glass blowers of this city held a meeting last evening, the object of which was to make final arrangements to inaugurate a strike in resistance to the reduction demanded by the manufacturers. The question of getting the apprentices to cease work is one that puzzles the minds of the strike leaders, although the older apprentices are strongly desirous of assisting the workers who intend to strike. One of the leaders said they had public and private funds that will enable them to maintain the strike until next year at this time.
