r that'he saw others rubbmjr lams' hands
and otherwise ministering to him after the
ordeal. He was also positive thai he saw
Jams spit tobacco juice while he was hang
up. In essential matters he corroborated
Another private of Company K, Robert
V. Kent, who was on guard when the hang-ing-up
occurred, told a very similar story,
but hadn't such a good opportunity to see
whether lams' feet touched the ground, or
indeed to tell generally whether the punish
ment had been cruel He also told how
lams was drummed out of camp. The next
witness was A. F. Myers, corporal in Com
pany K, and all the' difference in his evi
dence from the others was that he had posted
the guard to keep back men of the company
who wanted to see the punishment of lams.
He couldn't testily positively as to how
much lams suffered.
Private Kent was recalled and subjected
to exhaustive pumping by the Common
wealth, as a result of which he told how on
the Mondav night after the lams incident
he had heard Colonel Streator say at the
britrade headquarters to Colonel Hawkins
and Adjntant Hays that lams had better
keep out of his way, or he (Colonel
Streator) would shoot him, as he could hit
him at 40 yards.
1-ad Heard of lams Threats.
Under cross-examination by Mr. Braden
and Judge Porter, the witness said Colonel
Streator's remark was connected with
lams' presence in Homestead, as Colonel
Streator believed, with the purpose of kill
ing him. A rumor to that effect had flown
about the camp.
John H. Gladden, a ennbnrt, curly
mustached, good-looking warrior, the hos-
pital nurre at Camp Black last summer,
gae his version of the haneing-up of lams,
and went into noTe! particulars about the
effect of the punishment upon lams. Three
minutes after being cut down lams was a
pretty sick man, witness said. 15y Dr.
Grimm's orders he gave lams a dose of
whisky with six drops of ammonia, rubbed
his hands to promote circulation, for they
were cold, poured cold water on his heal
and did all he could to revive
him. Dr. Grimm afterward told Glad
den that lams' sickness was caused by
his swallowing achew of tobacco. lams lay
very still in Giadden's presence, and,
though the medicine revived him, half an
hour later he was still pretty sick. Glad
den felt his pulse at this time and found it
about 65. Under Mr. Braden's cross-fire
Gladden did not weaken very mnch, the
tact coming out that lams was unable to
take the medicine glass from Giadden's
hand and Gladden had to administoi u. At
witness' suggestion supper ras. however,

1-mai v. n. Hush, of Company K,
Tenth Hrciment, and Lieutenant A. J.
"Worley, of the same company, told of the
prosecutor's calamitous experience. The
former was one of the detail that
guarded lams w hen he was drummed out,
and the only important corroboration of
preceding witnesses for lams in the latter's
evidence was the statement of Lieutenant
"Worley that when lams was cut down his
eyes were shut and his face paler than
usual. Lieutenant Worley also assisted in

E. E. CritchQeld, Inspector of Rifle
Practice in the Tenth Keginient, told upon

lams first punishment to Major General
Snou den, and had brought back that report to
Colonel Hawkins with the indorsement
upon it "dUcharze him in disgrace, drum

The witness added: "When Major-General
Snowden handed me the paper he said,
'As a turther mark of humiliation and dis
grace I order that halt the prisoner's head

with the oral oider to Colonel Haukins."

GATES AND STEPS COYETED PRIZES
Modern witches, fairies, spirits and gob
lins were nearly as plentiful last night as
the stars which studded the clear
heavens. They were everywhere, a-d
to escape their attacks was impossi
ble. Everything movable was theirs
and that which was stationary was
open to attack. This fairy land pop
ulace traveled in squads, companies,
regiments and brigades, armed with an un
surpassable nerve and a plentiful supply of
corn, cabbage roots, tick-tacks and a hun
dred other Deaee-disturbing devices. To
walk alone in a quiet East End street could
onlybe compared to beardinga lion in its den.
Even a pedestrian on Fifth avenue was safe
only when he had police protection. Home
had no privacies last night, for its peace
was liable to be disturbed at
any moment by a fusilade of corn
or the incessant rapping of a tick-tack.

much pleasure out of these timeworn tricks
as though they were the production of a
brain of to-day.
"ut Vendors Made to Treat.
The fruit and nut stands in the down
town districts were the scene of many at
tacks last night. Crowds of oddly costumed
urchins, with blackened faces, visited all
the vendors and made life miserable to
them until they treated. They were armed
with anything that would make a noise.
Some tooted horns, others jerked horse
fiddles, while still another crowd cried
themselves hoarse in uttering "nuts!"
"nuts!" This was kept up until the stand
keeper produced and then the foragers
marched on another business place.
Another thing, which had to be borne be
cause it was Halloween, happened fre
quently on Fifth avenue last night Misses
just budding into girlhood were scattered
through the crowd. Their months were
filled with peas. Watching for a good op
portunity they would shoot their peas at
some unsuspecting dude's head. Occasion
ally one of their own sex would be singled
out for bombardment. Each time their
bullets struck a fair one, her blood was
raised and in several cases unpleasantnesses
were narrowly avoided.
Gates Locked Up for the Night.
In the East End these witches of a
night did everything that they could think
of that would cause trouble and annoy
ance. People who had gates which were
movable took them into the house and
locked them up as they would their dia
monds. This was done with many other
articles, but still there was plenty left for
the small boy to take possession of.
Front steps seemed to be one of the
tilings coveted by the Halloween celebra
tors. It was scarcely dark last night until
the squad doing business on Broad street
sallied out for their night's work. The

warning he commenced an attack on a pair

A CONFERENCE OF 60ME IMPORTANCE
The unsettled condition of affairs at
Homestead is just now demanding the at
tention of the military authorities of the
State, and there is considerable talk of
again concentrating the militia at that
point It was reported yesterday that the
Governor's attention had been called to
the many assaults that have been made on
non-union workmen there since the troops
were removed. Dr. Foster, whose son was
recently attacked and beaten, wrote the
Governor that the troops are necessary, and
as a result the Governor referred the
matter to the proper military authori
ties for investigation. As a result
Major Hartranft, of Major General Snow
den's staff, is now in Homestead, quietly
watching the progress of affairs there. He
arrived there on Sunday afternoon and he
has been there ever since. Major General
Snowden is himself in Pittsburg. He at
tended the lams trial yesterday, bnt it is
generally believed that he, too, is here in re
gard to the Homestead disturbances.
Commanding Officers Confer.
General Snowden, General Wylie, Colonel
McKibbin and Colonel Hawkins held a con
ference at the Duquesne Club yesterday.
They refused to sav what they were con
sidering. General Snowden said he had
come to Pittsburg to witness the trial of
Colonel Streator and others charged with
assaulting Private lams.
Major Hartranft, however, said to a Dis
patch reporter that he was going to Home
stead to investigate the conditions there.
He also said the military authorities were
fearful that it would yet be necessary to
again order the troops there.
Major Hartranft's report will be made to
General Snowden probably to-day and will
then be transmitted to the Governor for

were told to return to-day for further con

absence of yard laborers. The Hebrew

There was one assault yesterday and the

There was considerable excitement in
Homestead yesterday over the appearance
of a gentleman who registered at the Hotel
Amity as "H. Sando, London, Eng." Mr.
Sands hunted up A. F. Colgan, J. Schultz,

Brown, E. J. Atwood .ind Dr. Gladden. He
represented that he was an advance agent
for a party of cauitalists in London, Phila
delphia, Washington and Baltimore who
would build a co-ODerative steel nlant on
the Hays estate, tit Hays station. All he
wanted was co-operation on the part of the
locked-out men. After a lengtby consulta
tion he departed, as he said, for the East to
interview Eastern capitalists and would re
turn on Thursday.
May Spoil tho Scheme.
Mr. Sando was seen at the Union depot
fast evening. He was surprised when he
heard that somebody had leaked about his
plans. He said the talk was premature,
and would hurt the enterprise. He claimed
he represented considerable English and
American capital, ana ne was anxious to
know how the public regarded the strike,
and whether the people would support
a new venture. He thought it
too bad that such a body of
skilled men should be idle, and he hopes to
employ them. He admitted that he con
trolled, valuable irou lands in Virgiuia that
he intended to put on the market. He had
been in Chicago, and thought he would
stop oS on his way East to see some of the
Homestead men. He is favorably im
pressed. The 33-inch mill, which was shut down
to put in new pipes, will probably be

RUMOR OP A PREMIUM
On Oil "Which Was to Be Placed To-Day
Circumstances "Which Led Producers
' to Believe the Report-Conference of
National Transit Officials.
In some mysterious manner a rumor
gained circulation yesterday among the
oil men that the National Transit Company
wonld place a premium this morning on
McDonald oil. The report was said by
John Fisher to have originated in Oil City.
The present market value of petroleum
is 50 ,. cents a barrel, and a
premium wonld come to the oil
operators like the manna to the wanderers
in the desert. Unless some unforseen acci
dent occurs, the Crescent Pipe line will be
pumping oil through from McDonald to
Marcus Hook, its shipping point on the
Delaware, before the end of the week. The
Crescent gets its oil in the McDonald field,
and it was this fact which led many to sup
pose the report was based on something
Another featnre which gave color to the
rumor was the arrival in Pittsburg last
evening of Joseph Seep, of Titusville, who
has control of all the purchasing offices of
the National Transit Company; C N.
Payne, of Titusville, Chairman of the Ex
ecutive Committee; J. E. Campbell, of Oil
City, Treasurer of the National Transit,
and Henry McSweeney, of Oil City, the
attorney of the company. The first
three named held a conference at
the Monongahela House last evening, with
a fourth party whose identity could not be
learned. They were also in communica
tion with Thomas Chester, the agent for
the company in Pittsburg. Mr. "Chester
said early in the evening that if such a
step was to be taken he knew nothing of
it, and thought that if it was to be done
to-day he would have been informed.
A couple of years ago there was a
premium of 25 cents a barrel on
Washington oil. It was subsequently cut
to 20 and later to 15 cents, and about a year
and a half ago it was chopped off alto
gether. The actions of the company at that
time were enveloped in the deepest mys
tery until it was ready to spring the trap,
and the chances are that if it contemplates
putting a premium on any oil it will not
make the matter public until the official
notices arc posted.

him, some of it broken jewelry, some of it
The half dozen boarders were allowed to
inspect his stock, and it made their eyes
dance. He had a peck of it. An acquaint
ance of the woman who kept the house, one
Goldberg, was told of the wealth of Mr.
Schwarzman, and that he would sell some
of his gold at a low figure to permit his
friends to resell it and make a little
money. Goldberg is a second-hand dealer,
and has quite an extensive little
shop on Forbes near Pride street,
and by thrift has accnmnlated a
little bank account. He entered into
negotiations with Schwarzman for the
purchase of some of his stock, ancfto make
sure that the gold was all right, was
allowed to take a lot of it to Samuel Bock,
a manufacturing jeweler at 3G Fifth ave
nue, to learn its quality. Mr. Bock, after
testing it, decided tbe spec men to be of
the very finest quality. This satisfied
Goldberg, and yesterday he took a quan
tity of the dust from Schwarzman, who
weighed him ont an amount equal to 51,800.
Goldberg expected to realize 100 per cent
on the stuff. To make sure that it had
been weighed all right, he took the whole
of it to Mr. Bock, but the minute he
saw the stuff he knew it was not gold. To
satisfy Mr. Goldbsrg, however, he applied
the test, and told him he had bought a lot
of brass. Goldberg went back to the
boarding house on a run and announced
that he had been swindled. The boarding
house mistress fell in a faint, and her sister
nearly followed suit. They had each
loaned Schwarzman ?30, and he stepped out
of the houBe to get his shoes blacked. He
did not return, and the police were asked
to look for him. He is a short, heavy set
Hebrew, about 36 years of age, and claims
to be unable to speak English.
