Homestead (Pa.), July 18.—At mid
night an unverified rumor was current
that the steamer Little BUI, which towed
the Pinkertons into Homestead and pre
cipitated the tight, had more successfully
accomplished another dangerous mission
to-night. The report had it that the Little
l.ill brought up l_n nou-union men, who
were safe landed behind the higii fence
at the works.
Two brothers named MeConnell, Eng
lishmen, who worked as foremen in the
Homestead Mill, have not been seen for
three weeks, and the locked-out men be
lieve they have gone to England to en
gage non-union men to take places in the
mill. One of the-Carnegie foremen was

v. itii ridicule, saying there were plenty of
non-union men in this country, and that
part of the works would be BhUted by
The tension between llje strikers and
the military is increasing. There are
many Irresponsible, reckless men in
town, mostly with some sort of arms, and
an untoward event might precipitate the
conflict, The military, while not expect
ing such an outcome, aro evidently pre
paring for it.
Large and additional amounts of am
munition have been received from Frank
ford. There are at lea.-t 250,000 rounds oi
ammunition here, and 50,000 rounds more
aro expected. Another regiment was
brought over ihe river this morning, and
it is understood three others will be
brought over day by day.
The Amalgamated officials here say
they know nothing of a paper Baking for
aid, said to be circulating in New York,
and pronounce it a fraud.
The railroad men deny the truth of the
rumor that they wiii refuse to handle
freight for the Homstead Mill.
WIRE WORKS CLOSED DOWN.
FiTTsmiu*, July 18.—The Homestead
steel works strike has indirectly caused
the Indefinite suspension ofthe Braddock
Wire Works plant at Rankin Station,
and somo six hundred more men aro out
of work. Tbe mills, nail, reed, barbed
wire and win- drawing departments are
all closed down, owing to the lack of
Steel billets to make wire reeds, etc. A
stockholder of the Pittsburg Copper
Wiiv Company's works at Braddock
stated to-day that unless some change for
the better was made by the mills making
billets they will shutdown on Saturday.
Late to-night a scout, who had been
m nt through the mill, reported that thero
were no non-union mechanics inside the
fence, and the story about the boat-load
coming in must have been an error. The
rumor of imported labor coming from
Europe was taken up, but little attention
paid to it.

to-night that counter informations will
be laid against Messrs. Frick and Love

The general impression is that this is
only the beginning of a great legal

It is supposed the company will en
deavor to procure men from some of the
surrounding mills to start, the induce
ment being to give them better positions
than they have now. When they will
start is not known.
Homestead is filled with detectives in
the employ of the Carnegie Company
Their mission seems to be to watch the
movements of the leaders and bring in
fiuenoe to bear on the men composing tne
rank and die of the locked-out laborers
and mechanics. As to the latter object it
can be safely said that they are no
.ceding io any noticeable degree. Every
train brings unprincipled lellows into
the place. The majority come for no
other purpose thau to "work the strike
ess for a five or ten dollar bill and a free |

certainly becoming the Mecca for tramps, j
who represent themselves as non-union
workmen, but are willing to get out ofi
town again if tbe strikers give them a |
little cash and free tickets. But there is
another class drifting in here, they being i
sent by the ('arnegieSteel Company, and
it is thought the town is gradually filling
up with non-union men.

When they reached Levore's undertak

San Francisco, July 18.—When the

Howard Mac Sherry and District Attor
ney Barnes appeared for tho prosecution
and J. C. Campbell for the defense. A
largo number of witnesses was present
from all parts of tho State. Mr. Mac-
Sherry began by asking for a continu

unable to secure the attendance of Ticket
Scalper Ottinger, who, ho understood,
was at Anaconda, Mont.
.Mr. Campbell objected strenuously.
Mr. Reddy, he said, was hurrying back
from Arizona, and is anxious to go on
with the case. The defense expects to go
to trial to-day.
Judge Wallace said this could not be
done until tho defendant pleads, which
he has not done. It seemed that this lit
tle formality had not yet been complied
with, and Bruner at once arose and
pleaded not guilty.
Upon the question of a continuance, a
protracted debate took place among the
lawyers. Campbell objected to three
weeks, although be consented to two.
Foote said the disappearance of Ottinger
at this time was very mysterious, where

This meeting of the Ways and Means
Committee about completes the work of
the committee at the session. Tho policy
of some Democratic members for a post
ponement of further attempts at tariff re
vision has prevented action on sugar,
salt, lumber, iron ore and other proposed
bills. The improbability of any addi
tional tariff bids emerging from the Ways
and .Means Committee is increased by the
fact that the Kepublican members of tho
committee are not disposed to assist the
Democrats on tho committee to secure a
quorum. Word was received by the
Democratic members that the Republican
members would not attond any session
of the committee except for consideration
of tho adjournment resolution reported
to-day. The number of Democratic
members makes it impossible for the
committee to do anything, The refusal,
if persisted in, besides preventing the
report of an additional tariff bill, will
render it impossible for tho committee to
do anything with the adverse report on
the sub-treasury bills, and also onDal
zell's resolution of inquiry with refer
ence to tho losses sustained through
national and through State banks.
In case the House decides to adjourn
Monday next, the committee investigat
ing the Homestead troubles will probably
report progress. Ii tho adjournment is j
set later, the committee will investigate !

horizon but masses of vapor that ex
tended for many miles. The Great Sangir,
which before the explosion was iv mil
sight, could not be seen. Six sailing ves

A LITTLE SENSATION.
Rumor That Gladstone Will Not Be
Called Upon to Form a Cabinet.
London, July 18.—The I'all M<ill Ga
zette says that a rumor is in circulation
that the c^ueen will not summon Glad
stone to form a Ministry, but that a coali
tion Government under the Duke of De
vonshire is possible The l'<ill Mall '.'"
zette connects the rumor with the visit of
Lord Salisbury, Joseph Chamberlain and
the Duke of Devonshire to Windsor
t'astlo last week. Tho best-informed
Liberals ridicule the Devonshire coalition
as outside of all possible contingencies.
jJThe Times gives prominence to abetter
trom Sir Edward Watkin, a Liberal-
Unionist member-elect of the House of
Commons for Rylhe, and Chairman of
the Southeastern Railway Company, urg
ing tho settlement of tlie liisii question
by a compromise between Gladstone and
Salisbury, and by the construction of a
ship carud across Ireland, and a tunnel
connecting Ireland and Scotland.
The construction of the ship canal, Sir
Edward says, would place Ireland on
the shortest sea route to all the great
West, and to the East by way of tho
Canadian Pacilic Railway. Surveys havo
shown that the project is feasible and that
the cost would not exceed £20,000,000,
Sir Edward further says that the con
struction of the ship canal and tunnel
would restore prosperity to Ireland by
affording work for thousands of men,
and by the impetus that would be added
to her present commercial industries and
the creation ot new ones.
The sum of to-night's position, as
stated by several Liberals, is that they—
meaning to play for two or three at ssions
before dissolving Parliament—will not
rush the home rule bill, ii constrained
to give it precedence, they will not accept
its rejection by the ".House of Lords as
necessitating immediate dissolution, but
wiii proceed with measures tending to
strengthen the Liberal vote throughout
the country. Gladstone will movi
ply a "no confidence" amendment to tho
address instead of one alleging specific
reasons, and thus be enabled to limit the
scope of the declaration of h;s own
