THE PITTSBTJR& DISPATCH. THURSDAY AUGUST 4 192L
returned Mr. McConnell, "bat tra th to tell
"Did tou expect to be arrest ed to-dav?"
"I really canuot talt to you," replied
"But did you?"
"No, I aid not. I knew it would come
sooner or later, but scarcely expected it to
day." 'Did either you or Mr. Dovey call upon
Mr. Lovejoy to-night?"
"No, we did not;" and beyond thit the
prisoner refused to say. The clank of the
bolts in the corridor next broke the still
ness and the Warden's new guests filed in
for tneir night's sleep.
Constable Stewart said there wts no partic
ular hurry about the commitment, and as
the prisoners wanted dinner they took their
time. He said the trip ont Fifth avenue
was for the purpose of allowing Mr. Dovey
to call upon a friend.
General Manager Potter could not be
found last night- He was believed to be in
Pittsburg. It is thought he will surrender
Workers Fleas rd br the Arrests.
The Homestead men were feeling very
jubilant over the arrest of the company
officials; more so because they thought the
arrested men would hare to at least
spend a night in jaiL The gen
eral impression was that the court
had adjourned and it would be impossible
to admit the men to ball. The locked
out men were in a happier frame of mind
than they had been for several weeks.
Their spirits suffeied a fall, however. Jt
was about 7:30 that a bulletin was received
from Pittsburg. It stated that all the men
had been gitena hearing, and they had
been admitted to liberty on $10,000 bail.
Boon the men were loud in their de
nunciation of the court in its speedy ac
tion. Their feelings were relieved consider
ably when they learned later that McCon
nell and Dovey were in jail. The where
abouts of Bowen was as much of a mystery
to the Homestead men as it was in Pitts
burg. Last night Mrs. O'Brien, who keeps a
restaurant on Eiehth avenue, Homestead,
came into the citj. Her purpose was to
furnish bail for Bowen. Slie first
went to the jail, and he was
not there. A. visit to Central
station was as fruitless. She then called at
both Aldermen McMasters' and King's
offices, but Bowen had not been heard of at
either rlace. Up until midnight he had
not turned up.

.Robert Watkins committed suicide last
evening by cutting his throat with a razor.
He was a widower, 62 years of age, and
lived with his married daughter, Mrs. John
Mcllroy, and her husband at the corner of
Craig and Ridge streets, Thirteenth ward.
Despondency at what he termed ill-treatment

His home was originally in Inniskillen,
County Armagh, Ireland, where he has two
sons living, one an attorney and the other
a well to do merchant. He has been in this
country some years and worked at various
iron mills as a laborer. He quit his work
about a vear ago and having acquired a
little land "about his modest habita
tion, sold it for 5400, and went to
live with Mrs. Mcllroy. He resolved to
use the money in getting back to his native

sons he intended staying there until his
death, but one of the sou's, the attorney,
told him America was the best place for
him. bought him a ticket and sent him
back. He reached Pittsburg eight days
ago nith but 2 cents in his pocket. Mrs.
Mcllroy took him in but could not console
him. He became melancholy at his lot and
a lew days ago began to drink.
Last evening about 5 o'clock he walked
into a front room. A few moments later
Mrs. Mcllroy found him lying across the
doorway with his throat cut and the blood
runninc from a gaping wound. The instru
ment of death, a keen-edsed razor, was
grasped tichtly in his hand. Dr. Penny
was called at once, but aid was unavailing
and he died two hours later. Coroner Mc
Dowell investigated the case and found the
facts as stated. The body was removed
later to the morgue
H0EE0W.AND HIS FIGHTS.
He 'Will Spend Much of His Time In the
Courts Kelt Month.
Controller Morrow, In his efforts to pro
tect the city's interests, expects to spend
considerable of his time in conrt next
month. He will appear as defendant in the
suit of the Manchester Locomotive Com
pany, who demand 55,000 for the new Amos

known as No. 2, and which the Controller
refuses to pay for because he says the con
tract therefor was illegally let. He is plain

of departments, who constituted the old
Department of An ards, and wants them
enjoined to annul the Amoskeag contract.
The latter suit has been before a master for
three years and he is expected to report next
The suit brought against the city by the
State Treasurer to collect State tax on the
city's railroad compromise bondf, which
were exempt from taxation by act of As
sembly, will require the Controller and
City Attorney to spend some time in the
Dauphin county conrts next month.
The Controller's fight to compel Councils
to pass resolutions in approval of contracts,
so that they must then be submitted for
approval by the Mayor, will likely come up
in court during the next term. The suit
entered by Henry & McCance last week
opened up the way to a settlement of the
point. The Controller refused to issue war
rants to the firm for supplies furnished the
fire department under a contract let by
Chief Brown. The Controller says the
contract is illegal because it was not ap
proved by the Mayor; and he won't pay
any snch contracts until the court decides
DEATH OF H. C. FEICK'S CHILD.
The Little Boy Born Since the Troubles

"White ribbons hung from the doors of the
Carnegie buildings yesterday and a card told
that the infant son of H. C Prick had died
during tlie morning.
The little boy was born two days after the
riot at Homestead and has never been
healthy. The immediate cause of death
was the breaking of a blood vessel.
Mrs. Frick's health has not been good
since the sad death of her daughter, a bright
child of seven, a year ago. The death of
this child will be a heavy blow to both of
its parents. Expressions of sympathy came
from all sorts of people after the notice was

Agent Hesser, of the Liquor Dealers'
Association, has instituted a crusade
against illegal liquor dealers in the two
cities. "Within the past day or two he has

John Lovantosky, Frank Marsick, George

PRESIDENT WEIHE EEPDSE3 TO TALK
It required much questioning to get "W.
J. Brennen, the legal representative of the
Amalgamated Association, to talk about
the latest phase of the situation, and much
he did say was of an inferential nature.
He positively declined to say what further
prosecutions would be made against the
Carnegie people or the Pinkertons, though
intimating that other charges than murder
would sooner or later be brought against
certain persona connected with the firm.
Asked if there would be any other persons
charged with murderby the locked-ont men,
he said: "I know of no others, though I
can't say there will be no more. I don't
know what information the men may have.
They may, for instance, know and be able
to prove crimes against certain individuals
that I have heard nothing about "When
such points are brought out, suitable action
will be taken."
"What bo you expecttobethe outcome of
the informations made to-day?"
Expect to Prove the Charges.
T can't answer that. It would be pre
judging the case of the defendants and the
action of the Court In such a serious mat
ter as this it seems bad taste to lightly dis
cuss probabilities. These men are charged
with mnrder. "We certainly expect to prove
the charges or we should not have brought
them. The whole matter is so serious and
of such vital importance that we could not
afford to make a false move in the conrts."
"Do you think any of the defendants will
be held for first degree murder?"
"It lies entirely with the Court to fix the
decree of the offense. The fact that no op
position was made to the release on bail of
Mr. Potter and others to-day would indi
cate that we do not charge them with first
"But don't you expect first degree in the
case of the Pinkerton men who were on
"I don't care to answer that"
Raising; the Question of Duress.
Mr. Brennen would talk no further about
the present court cases. When asked con
cerning the report that an injunction was
to be asked for restraining the Carnegie
agents from bringing men to Homestead
under false pretenses the attorney first said
he did not know, but later he said:
"There certainly should be some steps
taken to protect workingmen in other cities
from the imposition practiced on them by
the Carnegies. "We are informed by men who
have come here that they were engaged to
come to Pittsburg to work. They told the
agent that under no circumstances would
they go to Homestead, but were told that
they were not wanted at Homestead, but at
Pittsburg. Supposing Homestead was 30
or 40 miles from the city, they were taken
there before they knew it When they
found themselves in the mill they could not
get out I don't care what Superintendent
Potter says, no man can get out of that mill
without permission. The State Guards have
no right to stand at the mill gates and pre
vent men from leaving of their own free
will, but that is what they are doing.
Getting a Pass to Go Oat
"When a poor fellow has been inveigled
into the works under false pretenses and
wants to get out, he is told he must have a
permit from Mr. Potter. But Mr. Potter is
not to be found for possibly two or three
days and the man must stay, harassed by
the importunings of the men around him,
who coax him to stay and subjected to
virtual imprisonment When he does find
Mr. Potter, who has probably been about
the mill all the time, but not recognized by
the prisoner, who does not know him, be
gets a permit to leave, but must wait until
the next day to ret a boatio take him
away. In the meantime they were subjected
to another conrse of harassment, and finally,
when the boat was ready'to go and the men
had declared their manhood and refused to
stay, they were let go."
"Mr. Potter thus -makes out that he did
not illegally imprison the men, but they
were, nevertheless, illegally enticed to the
mill by the company's agents. It seems to
me that such treatment of men would not
be tolerated in a court of justice, but I am
not yet in position to say what we propose
to do about it"
EIGHTS OF PE0FEETY H0LDEES. '
A Carnegie Attorney Discusses the Home
stead Affair From Bis Point of Tisw.
E. Y. Breck was seen by a Dispatch re
porter last night, and, upon being asked
what he thought of the proceedings of the
day, said: "Judge Bwing was not at all
backward in expressing his opinion as to who
were the aggressors in the Homestead fight
His language could not be mistaken on that
point The Carnegies at the time of the
fight were in possession of their property in
a'kind of a way. That is, they had the
watchmen hired hy them on duty there, and,
being in possession, had a perfect right
to put whom they pleased in the
works. Why, If they wanted, the law
gave them the privilege of putting a band
of savages armed with bows and arrows and
spears as far as that eoes, but some people
think that because the company wished to
put only watchmen in their works they
were violating the law and were intruders,
justly meriting the reception their men re
ceived. Xo; Indians, Zulus, Pinkertons or
watchmen the name makes no difference
in the law on the point, which is that a per
son can piece whosoever he will on his own
property. It would not be proper for me
to discuss 'the mistakes of Moses,' as Inger
soil would say, suffice it to say that they
will not be able to prove many of the points
on which they base their case. We will
have Mr. Potter and the other men in court
to-morrow morning to apply for ball."

Be 'Will Mot Talk or the Arrest of Lovrjoj
The report of the arrest of the Carnegie
Steel Company officials upon the charge of
murder created much surprise yesterday,
and there were very few people who had
not some comment or opinion to advance
upon the subject Prominent among these
close-mouthed individuals was President
Weihe, of the Amalgamated Association.
When asked what he thought of the unex
pected move he replied: "I have nothing
whatever to say."
THE MEH XHUfK II TOFAIB.
Homesteaders Say the Court Did Mot Act
The leaders of the Homestead men were
not inclined to talk much about the arrests
last night Acting Chairman Thomas Craw
"Our men were arrested, and the company
Is just as liable to arrest as we. If ours was
a crime, theirs was just as great a breach of
the law. We did not bring the charges
against the men that it might have a eood
effect on our case. We propose to win this
lockout in a far more honorable manner
than that would be.
"To my mind it was unfair to grant these
men hearings and release them on bail bond
afier court hours. MoLuckie, O'Donnell
and the other strikers had to Stay in jail
over night, and it was nj more than right
that the agents of the company should re
ceive the same treatment"
TREAT IT AS A JOKE.
The CBrargle Officials tra Mot Surprised at
the Action of the Homestead Men Sec
retary Lovejoy Says the Action Is Simply
The arrests were the only topic of dis
cussion at the big Carnegie offices yester
day. A number of conferences wer held
there during the afternoon, both in the of
fices of "Vice Chairman Irishman and also
in those of1 Secretary Lovejoy. All seemed
to take the matter coolly and regard the
affair much in the light tif a joke. On ac
count of the rumors that have been flying
for nearly a month they were all expecting
arrest, yet doubted. As Secretary Lovejoy
laughingly remarked, "It is a condition,
not a theory that confronts us." Then he
said? "We regard the arrests very much as
a bluff, and are satisfied nothing can be
done. To tell the truth, there is not very
much that can be said about it Everybody
knows of the talk about entering these
suits, and there is nothing new save that
the talk has been carried into effect
"All the members of the firm that have
been named on the informations are arrested
exept Manager Potter and Mr. Carey.
They will appear in court to-morrow morn
ing and give themselves up. There is no
danger of them staying away. It will only
be a formality. We have all waived a
hearing before the magistrate."
Chairman Prick only smiled when asked
abont the matter and said it was not a thing
to be troubled about Vice Chairman
Leishman was not the least'bit worried and.
didn't think there was any necessity for
saving anything about it
Yardmaster Dorev, Superintendent Mc
Connell and Mr. Childs were all seen at the
Alderman's office. They declared they
were not worried .abont the outcome. Both
Dovey and McConnell waived a hearing.
SYMPATHY FOB THE ITEM.
Bonders Pass Resolutions Commending; the
Stand of the Carnegie Company.
Members of the Builders' Exchange held
their regular monthly meeting in their hall
on Ninth street yesterday afternoon. After
the minutes of the previous session had
been read and adopted, the Chairman
announced that the first business matter on
the day's programme was the admission of
new members. There were seven candi
dates. Each of these was balloted for separately
and all received an unanimous vote. The
lucky candidates were D. G. Bealer & Co.,
bricklayers and contractors; J. C Fulton,
carpenter and builder; the Electric Manu
facturing and Supply Company, electric
supplies; the Pinkbam Electric Company,
electricians; Iron City Electric Company,
supplies and construction; Granolithic Pav
ing Company, cement paving; A. Northrop
& Co., iron ceilings. Following the admis
sion of new members the ordinary routine
business was transacted. Just before an
adjournment was called, however, the fol
lowing copy ot resolutions was presented
"Whereas, The members ot this Ex
change have learned of the insurrectionary
and unprecedented action of the employes
of the Carnegie Steel Company, Limited,
at Homestead on July 6 and subsequently.
"Resolved, That we affirm the absolute
personal independence of individuals to
employ or not to employ, to work or not to
work "as a fundamental principle which
should never be questioned or" assailed.
That upon it depends the security of our
whole social fabric and business prosperity,
and employers and workmen should be
equally interested in its defense and preser
vation. "Besolved, That we approve of the action
of the Carnegie Steel Company, Limited,
in maintaining their rights to operate their
works with persons such as they may choose
to employ, and comme'nd its firmness in
carrying into effect a principle of so much
importance to the American people."

As matters now stand the indications point

They run at a high rate of speed and cut

Major Crawford Explains How the Mob
In Bpeaking of the threatened riot over
the Dovey and McConnel arrests at Home
stead last evening Major Crawford, of the
Fifteenth Begiment, said: "I went to the
scene with two companies. As we reached,
the station the Sheriff had read a proclama
tion ordering the men to disperse. They
would not and many hooted. The Sheriff
then returned and told me he was powerless
to keep the men back. I said to them, 'You
must disperse and at once. You are defy
ing the law.' My Adjutant gave orders to
the men to be careful how they used their
bayonets but to press forward. They did
so in a firm manner, forcing the crowd back
ward. Bowen, who was arrested, yelled
,Toa have no right to disperse us. Boys,
don't move.' Then we arrested him and
this action frightened the crowd."

SAY THERE HAVE BEEN NO BREAKS
No Attempt let Made to Start Tip the
Duquesne Works Again,
BEATER FALLS MEN GO AWAY TO WORK
But one mill was in operation yesterday
at the Thirty-third street plant. This one
is known as the So. 2 or small plate mill.
In the morning of the day before the firm
was rnnning four departments, but since
that time a number of their non-union
workers have deserted, leaving just enough
men behind to form a single turn crew for
the small plate mill.
The attempt to operate the guide, 12
inch and scrap mills has been abandoned.
The reason for shutting down the guide
mill Is not known, but the 12-inch and
scrap departments will close because there
are ''stickers" in the rolls at both mills and
In addition to this there are 15 cobblers
lying in the scrap mill which are practi
cally ruined, snowing that the men em
ployed in that department Monday were
little acquainted with their work. Al
though it is said that the No. 2 plate mill
is in operation, the men assisting the roller,
are doing little or nothing. At 11 o'clock
yesterday the first heat was on, while under
ordinary circumstances three heats should
have been finished by that time.
AToke on tho Non-Unionists.
The work on the carpenter shops is com
pleted and they now present the appearance
of an improvised hospital ward with the
little cots all in a line. The scrap sheds
serve as kitchens.
Although the dwelling of the non-union
men is situated almost on the banks of the
Allegheny river the occupants do not enjoy
the usual freedom of guosti at watering
places. Early yesterday morning a practi
cal joker placed a row of railroad torpedoes
upon the Allegheny Valley tracks and a
passing train exploded them. This caused
a commotion in the boarding house. Every
body had retired for the night and all was
quiet when suddenly there was one-half
dozen deafening reports.
Some one yelled "dynamite" and in less
than a minute all the non-union men were
on their feet looking for their clothes.
Many ran to the limits of the yard and
scaled the fences. One of the latter in red
underclothing was captured by an Amalga
mated scout. When the fugitive had
recovered his brea'.h sufficiently he ex
plained that he was a non-union man, but
would be one no more. Besides some five
or six men, who left during the excitement,
the Amalgamated Association persuaded
six men to leave the mill yesterday after
noon and 15 additional men offered to come
out, but the Amalgamated Assoclation.sent
them bock to work, telling them that when
they needed them they would let them
know. They are now working for the as
sociation inside of the mill.
Colored Cooks Leave the Mill.
Among the recrnits who left the works
yesterday were three colored cooks.
This only leaves two in the mill. The
three that came ont say they will never
cook another meal for a non-union worker.
A member of the Press Committee who
claim to have received his information
from a reliable source says: "There was"
but a little over one ton of bars turned out
on the 12-inch tmiU Monday, the regular
output being 400 bars or 21 tons. To make
matters worse for the workmen inside their
beer supply has been cnt short When the
firm first attempted to supply their new
workmen with beer they experienced much
trouble in getting a brewer to serve them.
At last the Phoenix was induced to take
their trade, but fearing that the brewery
will be boycotted that company has also,
it is alleged, refused to deliver any more
beer at the works. The firm is now obliged
to go to the Willow Grove Brewery."
80LDIEES GET INTO ACTION.
General Wiley Deolares the Iocked-Oat
Hen Are Completely Whipped.
The soldiers at Camp Sam Black had a
little excitement outside of the routine
yesterday when they charged bayonets on
the mob during the arrests of Yardmaster
Dovey and Superintendent McConnell, of
the open hearth department.
The Fifteenth Begiment, which was on
provost duty, had one of the companies in
the bloodless battle and a part of Battery B
also took part Colonel Mechlins himself
took charge of the squad at City Farm sta
tion. Back in the camp, though, there was lit
tle excitement. The military there seem to
expect a long stay, and all are putting
floors in their tents and trying to make
themselves comfortable. The Fifth Begi
ment was out on battalion drill yesterday
morning, and a part of the Sixteenth was
also drilled. Before the platoon of Battery
B was released the entire battery was put
through a drill.
General Wiley put In a quiet day. Ex
Adjutant General Guthrie was there as his
guest and the two discussed the situation.
Both declared it was a pity that the men
did not realize they were whipped, as each
day put them further out in the cold.
General Wiley said: "This morning I
met a thorough iron and steel man who had
just been through the milL He told me
there were over 1,200 men in the mill and
they were turning ont as good steel as any
he had ever seen. These men think be
cause smoke is not coming from every stack
that the mill is not in operation. All of
them that are idle are being repaired, and
In a few days the big converting mill will
be in operation. It is foolishness for these
men to stay out any longer. They ought to
go back now if the firm will take them."

THE TRUTH OUT AT LAST.
Chairman Crawford Thinks Ha Has
Clincher on Treasurer Curry as to the
Number of Old Man Who Returned to
The arrests of the two officials at Home
stead drowned out everything else yester
day and the day otherwise was very quiet
The meeting of Tuesday had a good effect
This was shown yesterday by the renewed
firmness of the men.
Of the situation, Chairman Crawford, of
the Advisory Committee, said: "We have
at last mode Treasurer Curry own up to the
truth. In an interview in an afternoon pa
per he says this: 'Three of our former em
ployes have come back.' That is the truth.
The company has been giving
out each day "that anywhere from 15
to 30 old men had returned on
that particular day. This they cannot
truthfully keep up, as the Advisory Com
mittee can too well keep tab on the goings
and comings of its men. The company has
realized this and yesterday gave out the
truth in part Only lu part for the reason
that those three men hare since quit work,
and now not one of the old men are within
the gates of the Homestead mills.
"I was up In Pittsburg yesterday, and
among other things that I did. was to "take a
run out to the Twenty-ninth and Thirty
third street mills. The men in both plants
are very firm. Indeed, they are more con
vinced that they are in the "right than ever.
The attempt to work the Lawrenceville
mills has been a dismal failure. The Du
quesne men are with us still. The mills
will not be started as long as the Duquesne
men can aid us by staying out"
' BO CHANGE AT DUQUESNE.
Statements of the Managers and the Strikers
The situation at Duquesne last evening
was quiet, but a great change may take
place before the mills set started. Tester
day morning a number of Homestead men
were stationed near the mill entrance ex
pecting an effort would be made to start up
the mill with the turn that should go on at
6 o'clock, but no effort was made. And old
man named Edwards who has charge of the
store house at night came out at that time
and was stopped by the men. He resented
the Interference and came near having a
fight with the men on guard.
Vice President Carney says the effort to
stiffen up the movement at Duquesne on
Monday night was highly successful, as he
stated that the men had agreed to stand
firm and those who had reported for duty
would again withdraw their applications.
The company officials say the men have
failed to do this and that more of them re
ported for work yesterday. About 150 men
reported to the office during the day, the
majority being old employes, the officials
say, a number ot them formerly strong
Amalgamated men, and two of them Amal
gamated men from Homestead.
The management will hardly make an at
tempt to start up before the first of next

Sonthslde Wants No Arbitration.
Twolodges of the Amalgamated Associa
tion met yesterday afternoon on Fifteenth
