JiMES EEDSHiWS 1PPEAL HEAED
"Hare been refused ball; nut remain
here until tried by court," were the words
telegraphed by Hugh O'Donnell irom the
Jail to his wife in Homestead yesterday
Immediately after retiring from the court
room. There he had listened to Judge
Porter's reasons why the prisoner, charged
with the murder of Captain Klein in con
nection with the Homestead trouble, could
not be admitted to bail. '
O'Donnell had been called into court
shortly after 9 o'clock in the morning to
hear the Court's decision. He listened to
the unfavorable opinion without showing
nervousness. Hit jail life had apparently
agreed with him, and he looked iresh and
pleasant. There were but few people in
the courtroom when the important session
opened. The delay in the decision had con
vinced the prisoner that it would be un
favorable to him, and he listened attentive
1t to the reading of the opinion without ap
parent concern. After hearing the decision
O'Donnell shook hands with one or two of
his iriends who had gathered about him,
but, without remaining to talk, followed the
deputy sheriff back to the jaiL
O'Donnell Anticipated the Decision.
After being returned to his cell the pris
oner telegraphed his wife, and then took up
a morning paper. To Warden McAleese he
said he was not disappointed in Judge Por
ter's decision. "I realized the delay in
reaching a conclusion was against me, and I
would haTe been agreeably surprised had I
been admitted to bail," O'Donnell said.
"I have no fear of the trial in court. I am
content in the belief that a jury will decide
that I had no part in the killing for which
I am charged."
The opinion in the case handed down by
Judge Porter is appended:
Upon the hearing of this application the
Commonwealth produced evidence that
prior to the killing, which Is the subject of
lnquiiy.the defendant had at various times,
In substance, declared that there was a com
bination or men, himself among the number,
whose interests were in charge of an Ad
visory Board, of which he was Chairman,
and that they had made arrangements nnder
which the approach of any person to the
works of the Carnegie Company, Limited,
wonld he strictly reported to the rooms of
the Advisory Comriittee; that they wonld
protect the property, preserve order, and by
force, If necessary, prevent the dntranoe of
parties to whom they objected upon the
Prepared to Beslst an Invasion.
They had arranged to have a certain
whistle blown as a signal to call ont the
people in case they reoelved intelligence of
the approach of any parties to the mill; that
they held consultations with the Sheriff of
Allegheny county, who had been notified hy
the owners of the property to take charjte of 4
end proteotlt, and that tbey bad told the
Sheriff that they would protect the prop
erty, but they would not permit htm to put
In deputies unless such deputies were
known to and approved by them. That at
the last visit of the Sheriff, he had notified
them'that he could not accept their terms,
and that they had thereupon declared that
the committee or Advisory Board was dis
solved. That after this the defendant de
clared that they wonld permit the Sheriff to
put In deputies who were known to ana ap
pioved by them, hut they would not permit
him to put in deputies that they did not
It Is further In evidence that at one time
during the existence of the trouble and
prior to the killing, the Sheriff did send a
number of bis regular deputies In charge of
the ex-Sheriff of the county to take charge
of the property, but they were met by a
large crowd of men who refused to permit
them to perform their duty, and by sheer
force of numbers prevented their entrance
upon the property and compelled them to
goawav. Upon one occasion information
was brought to the defendant, at the rooms
of the committee, that workmen, or de
tectives wero on their way to be
Introduced into the mill, and shortly
thereafter the signal was blown.
Armed aicn Respond to the Signal.
A large number of men, some of whom
were armed with revolvers, quickly re
sponded to the alarm, which proving to be
false, the crowd dispersed. Subsequently to
the time w hen the Advisory Committee was
declared to be dissolved, the men who had
composed it continued to meet at the same
room. Upon the morning of the Oth of July
tue defendant received information that a
steamboat with two barges containing men
to be Introduced upon the pioperty ot the
Carnegie Steel Company was on the way to
Homestead. Shortly afterward the signal
was again blown and a large number oi men
assembled upon the bank of the river, and
the defendant was seen going In the direction
of the mill. The fence surrounding tho
property was torn down by the crowd,
the property of the company entered upon,
and v. hen tho steamer landed a largo num
ber of men, many of whom were armed with
deadly weapous, wero theie to oppose the
landing. The defendant was there present
upon the ground, a parley ensued and
threats were made by those on shore. When
some of the men on the boat were starting
to disembark a volley was fli ed from tho
shore, which wounded a number of men on
the boat and killed the man Klein, whose
death Is the subject of Inquiry. The de
fendant remained upon the ground during
the greater part oi the day counseling,
assisting and directing those engaged in the
deadly attack on the men on the bo.it.
thougn tnoie was no evidence tnat the
defendant was armed.
Praise for Amalgamated Officers.
During the afternoon the general officers
of the Amalgamated Association went to
Homestead and to the scene of the conflict
and mado a creditable appeal to the assail
ants to desist from the attack upon the
barges, warning them that if they did not do
so troops would be upon tbo ground that
night, but the rioters refused to listen to
their suggestions. Somo time after this tho
delendant made a speech to those upon the
ground, saying that the men in tho barges
had raised tho white flag, and advising that
they be permitted to untie the barge and
float them down the river. It was finally
voted that they bo permitted to givo up
their arms and surrender, which was done.
That night the defendant, speaking
of the conflict, said: "We have a
glorioui victory; we killed six of
them." During tho afternoon, while the
attack upon the barges was in progiess, and
dynamite was being thrown on them, and
E reparations made to burn them with oil,
e said: "We are going to win." All this
testimony Is liable to be contradicted, ex
plained or impeached on a trial, but in this,
as in nil preliminary hearings, wo must ac
cept the testimony offered by the Common
wealth as true. It Indicates that the killing
In question wm done in a riot by a body of
men who had a common understanding or
agreement that they should resist all who
opposed them to the extent of taking life, if
necessary, to accomplish their purpose; that
the defendant was a party to this combina
tion, and that he was present upon the
f round with full knowledge of tho proceed
ngs of the rioters and giving tbem encoui
agement. We must, therefore, reluse the
nrplicatlon to admit the delendant to bail,
Ed it Is ordered that be be remanded to the
custody of the Warden of the jail to await
ilj-j further order of the Court.
jjudge Porter yesterday afternoon heard
the appeal of James Bedshaw from the de
cision of Judge Gripp, who nnder the act of
1865. committed Bedshaw to the workhonse
for 30 days. The case is one from Home
stead. Bedshaw is one of the locked-out
men. He lives at Man hall. On September
9 he met two of the non-union workmen in
the Homestead mill, named Collins and
Littell. As he passed them he said: "Go
on, you scabs." Some words were ex
changed and the men called a deputy sheriff,
who arrested Bedshaw. He was subsequently
brought to the city and taken before
Magistrate Gripp, who committed him for
30 days to the workhouse without the alter
native of a fine. This action was taken
under the act ot 1863, known as the work
house act. Bedshaw appealed to court, and
was released on bail pending a hearing. At
the hearing yesterday he was represented
by W.J. Brennen, while B. B. Petty, Esq.,
attorney ior the Sheriff, opposed the ap
peal. Mr. Petty's position both before tho
Magistrate and in court was that the clause
in the act of 1866 which provides "That it
shall be lawful for any Magistrate to com
mit to said workhouse a disorderly person
for not less than 30 days nor more than
three months," extended the powers of
Magistrates in cities and boroughs to cover
townships, and that under it Bedshaw,
whose arrest was in Mifflin township, could
be committed under it without a fine, no
fine being mentioned in the act
Attorney Brcnnen's Point Overruled.
Mr. Brennen said the clause in the work
house act was only an incidental one, hav
ing reference to the new workhouse and
that it was not the intention of the Legisla
ture to extend the powers of magistrates to
apply in townships. He asserted that in a
township disorderly condect was an indict
able offense and Bedshaw should have been
held for court, the magistrate not having
the power of summary conviction.
Judge Porter, however, ruled that if the
Legislature had not intended to increase
the powers of the magistrates it should have
said so. He overruled Mr. Brennen and
the hearing was proceeded with.
The testimony was then taken as to the
occurrence. Bedshaw claimed he called the
men "scabs" because they pushed against
him. When the testimony was concluded
Judge Porter said he would give his deci
sion in the case Monday afternoon.
A similar case, that "of J. Miller, will be
heard next Saturday.

Talking Orer the Jolly 'Celebration of Its
RECOLLECTIONS OF OLD CAMPAIGNERS
A man of rather small stature, bending
low with the weight of his 68 years of a
hard worked life, wearing the time-honored
uniform of the G. A. B., and showing from
beneath his soft turban, the wiry features
of a brave old soldier, encircled with locks
of the most .immaculate white. Suoh is a
"fair pen picture of old Jack LongstafT, of
Kansas, who served his country during tho
Mexican War, fought for the flag of liberty
in a dozen of the biggest battles, and mus
tered in a second time as a loyal American
to serve the North in its late struggle with
It was in ex-Alderman J. S. Kennedy'
office, on Grant street, that the old man sat;
his kindly countenances lighted up with
recollections of the long dim past By his
side sat the late 'Squire, another relio of
the veterans' day. Both faces were a study
for the observer as one reminiscence after
another passed between them, ever brimful
of the tendcrest thoughts of more than half
a century. A round of hearty laughter, as
young and happy in its ring as that of any
7-year-old boy, followed every story and
every joke. There they were, well ripened
in the sixties, blissfully unconscious for the
time being of every worldly care or pres
ence, and buried mentally in the memories
of their long-gone boyhood. It was, indeed,
refreshing toget a glimpse of these warriors;
the earliest members of the famous Da
Can't Forget the Greys' Reunion.
"I could not forget it if I were to try,"
observed old man LongstafT, as he revived a
few reflections of the "Greys' " reunion in
'77. It was then they were thinking of,
and devising an appropriate way to cele
brate the semi-centennial ot their organiza
tion. "It was a great old crowd," he continned,
"a happy jubilee. The boys were out in
their numbers, too. How they cheered and
sang, and eat and drank. But ah met how
the ranks have scattered. I'll tell you,
Judge, it would take a whole year to even
think of the days we had, mnch less to relate
the occurrences that took place."
"Indeed you are right," remarked the
'Squire. "All our little experiences at the
front and in camp did not happen in a day
or two." .
LongstafT then broke in with a story of
Brigadier General Bichard Drum, ex-Adjutant
General of the United Statei army.
When the Greys were fitst organized on
September 5, 1831, Dick Drum was one of
the first to join. He was' only a
private, with little idea of ever
reaching the commission of Brigadier
General. He is retired now and wandering
at his ease in dreamy climes of California
and Colorado. Back to that golden wedding
of the Greys, juBt 11 years ago next Oc
tober, did' the sturdy pair of veterans go
again. Back to the hour in which they
gathered round the board to toast the health
of Dick Drum, and Sam Black; George
Bradv who became Lieutenant Colonel of
the United States army and died out West
a few years ago; Captain William Troville,
who lead the company in the hotest battles
it had seen; Colonel Bob Anderson a private
in the early days of Mexican tronble;
General Neg'lev, now retired from army
service, and Major B. E. Leiper who
dropped before his company in the second

'It would be hard to get them all to

"Indeed, it wonld, Judge," remarked old
LongstafT. "They were all privates in their
day, aud good ones, too. I don't believe
that the boys were ever happier than they
were at the big blow, nearly 11 years ago,
singing the praises of the fellows that rose
to such commanding positions in the na
tional service. It took me back to the
times we spent at the front and made me
think of how uncertain was the life that
bore us through.
"It drew before me a picture of 'Gains'
Mills,' where Black fell like a hero, of
Pair Oaks where the noble Bippey achieved
a splendid victory, of Chancellorsville,
Malvern Hill. Wilderness and Gettysburg,

with pain and sorrow; and yet a tinge of

used to have. Going away back to 1846 and

yon, Judge. And when people talk of
things that happened but a Jew years ago,
why I feel like telling them what I well re

Brave Men "Who Didn't Pear Death.
"Those fellows who fought with us as

The spirits of their thoughts will walk the earth.
"Still we wear the good old blue. How
many changes have taken place since we
met then? How many families are broken
up? Old comrade, the old time is lost in
the new. You don't hear of manv soldiers
now-a-days having to work in the dykes and
ditches of the plains without a thing to eat
for days at a stretch. They were tough
times and I hope they won't come again."
"Well JC should say they won't," re
marked Mr. Kennedy, "Only it is a pity
time should separate the boys that
loved each other so much, How I'd like to
see them all together once again. Talking
of that reunions, don't you remember when
Captain Kennedy took up that beautiful
basket of flowers at the gathering of '69,
and read the note that was tied on top? It
was from Mrs. David Campbell, who sent
the tribute as a token of regard for tho
boys that were then living, and of reverence
lor the comrades that had bravely fallen."
"I remember it well," said. Mr. Long
staff. And then the 'Squire took down his
own history of the Duquesne Greys, shak
ing off the dust that gathered on its covers,
and handed it to his friend and comrade for
perusal. After skipping through the pages
of the old book hurriedly, Jack saidgoodby
to the "Judge" and said he had to go and
see Comrade Petrie before he left town.
He intended going to the encampment at
Washingtonbut got sick on his way from
Kansas. "I'll start for home to-night,
Judge," said the old vet, as he left the
doorstep, waving the end of a campaign
handkerchief in what will possibly be the
last farewell he will have a chance to say
to Comrade Kennedy of the Greys.

THE PITTSBTJBG DISPATCH, SUNDAY, fcUflHTEMBEB ' SB,
To Be Considered at To-Morrow's Meeting
of Councils Four Tears to Put Wire
Underground Poolroom Ordinance to
Be Passed More Police Needed.
Councils meet to-morrovv afternoon, a
regular session. A number of important
ordinances are to be considered, but the
meeting is not expected to be specially in
teresting. In the select branch the under
ground wire ordinance has been made the
special order of business for 3 o'clock. No
opposition has developed against this
measure, but it will probably be amended
to its original form, allowing the companies
affected four years to put the electrio wires
all underground west of Grant street.
The Public Safety Committee amended
the original bill limiting the time for doing
the work to two years, but the companies
claim it can't be done, that half the streets
in the business part of the city would have
to be opened up at once, and the expense
involved by such haste would be enormous
and unnecessary. As a matter of public
safety and convenience Chief Brown holds
the same view. His ideas will be presented
by Mr. Lambio and it is probable the elec
tric companies will have representatives on
hand to furnish any information that may
The poolroom license ordinance is also
specially to be considered following the
underground wire ordinances. There is
considerable opposition to this bill among
poolroom owners, but it is expected Coun
cils will pass it without much difficulty.
The resolution authorizing Chief Brown to
add CO policemen to the force after the first
ol next February, the ordinances regulating
the disposal of garbage and authorizing the
purchase of ground for a police station in
the Twenty-eighth ward, together with one
prohibiting the driving ot cattle over cer
tain residence streets in the East End will
also receive consideration.
There will be a large number of street
improvement ordiuances acted upon, but
none of unnsual importance. Chief Bige
low will have several contracts for the pur
chase of small lots inside the Highland
Park lines up for approval. The ordi
nances were presented several months ago.
As the total sum required for them is less
than 2,600, no opposition is expected.

termined as any battle ever waged, was
fought to a finish on Liberty street, at the
foot of Pifth avenue.yesterday. The strug
gle continued all day, yet it was conducted
so quietly and with such vigorous determin
ation that policemen walked by without
even knowing that anything was going on.
Street Commissioner Hunter was the only
city official who took any part in the con
test, and he remained on the ground most
of the afternoon just to see that the street
crossing was not blockaded by either of tho
One of the tracks of the West End horse
cars on Liberty street is being relaid, and
as a resnlt the company at that point has
been using but one track. The Manchester
line forms a loop by going along Duquesne
way from the Sixth street bridge to Pifth
street, up Pilth street to Liberty, and along
Liberty street to the station at Liberty,
Market and Sixth streets.
Both Wanted the Track.
Along Liberty street the track now being
used by the West End cars and the
Mauchester line lap each other, and
since the tearing up of one of
the West End tracks the two
roads have been conflicting with eacn other.
Yesterday morning, however, the war broke
out in earnest when a West End car going
out met on the same track a Manchester line
car coming in. There was a parley, and
finally the West End conductor yielded,
and had his car pulled back out of the war.
Again and again during the morning the
contending lines met on the same track, and
each time there were ugly words and
prolonged delay. Finally, in the early
afternoon, cars of the contending companies
met J. D. Callery, of the West End line,
instructed his conductor to stand pat just
where he had met the Manchester car.
Some ugly threats passed between the em
ployes, aud while the war of words was in
progress another West End car came in on
the same track, sandwiching the Manches
ter car, and preventing it from going either
back or forward.
Superintendents Take Up the Quarrel.
The superintendents of both roads were
notified and both promptly appeared on the
scene. The superintendent of the West
End line refused to move either of his cars
until the superintendent of the Manchester
would agree not to come over the West End
line again. The one refused to accept the
conditions of the other. The Manchester
car was held fast The West End cars did
not come up to Pifth avenue, but the
passengers were compelled to walk down to
Pifth street, and in that way the road was
The attorneys of both companies were
consulted and at the request of Johns Mc
Cleve a warrant was issued by Alderman
BeHly for the arrest of the Manchester su
perintendent and his employes involved in
the dispute. It was just 20 minutes after C
o'clock in the evening when Constable Mc
Inerny appeared on the scene with the war
rant The superintendents saw him com
ing and before he could read the warrant
the war was declared off. The Manchester
superintendent agreed to interfere no fur

Gas Zlrnth Will Have to Answer to a Charge
Gui Ziruth yesterday had a hearing be
fore Alderman Gripp on the charge of per
jury made against him by Coroner's Clerk
Miller for false testimony given in the
Cooley murder case.
Judge Gripp decided that the evidence
was so strong that it was unnecessary to
hold a detailed hearing. Ziruth was held
for court in 51,000 bail. He-could not get
bondsmen and is now in jail. It is said the
man has quite a record. This will be
hunted up, and Ziruth will get everything
that is coming to him.
He Failed to Get Away.
John Hess, charged with assault and bat
tery by Zella Edmunds, escaped from Con
stable Simms at Magistrate Gripp's office
yesterday and started down Grant street
Two or three officers followed, a crowd
gathered and the excitement was great
Hess finally turned into the alleys and
landed on Second avenue, where Captain
Hennigan, of No. 2 Engine Company, cap
tured him. He is now in jail
