These instructions, in my opinion, embody
con eet Tien s of the lair. In addition to the
lbregolUK instructions I add tuo following:
In the language of the statu tesor the United
States, section 2019, It is the duty or the su
pervisors, in their respective oloctlon dis
tricts or voting precincts, to bo present oil
the day of lclstrution, and on election day,
"to take, oocnpv and leinaln in sucli posi
tion, from time to time, whether before or
behind the ballot boxes, as will in their
Judgment best enable them to see each per
son offering himself for rejistration or offer
ing to voir, and as will bpst conduce to their
scrutinizing the manner in which the regis
tration ur voting is bolng conducted; and at
tlio closing of the polls tor the reception of
votes, they are leqnlred to place themselves
In such position, in relation to the ballot

work of canvassing tho ballots, as will en

spect to such canvass provided herein, and

Duties of Officers Very Plain.
By section 2022 the. deputy marshals are
authorized to arrest "with or without proc
ess any person who commits, or attempts or
offers to commit, any of tho acts or offenses
prohibited herein, or who commits any
offenses against the laics of the United States;"
but no person shall be arrested without
pi occss lor any offense not committed in the
presence of the Marshal, or one of his general or
special deputies or one of the suienisors of election-
Aud the supervisors iiae llaepocr
to make arrests.
Any attempt to interfere with the super
visors or deputy marshals in the proper dis
charge of their duties is a violation of the
law and subjects tho wrongdoer to a severe
penalty. The duty and the authority of tho
supervisors and the deputy marshals in the
premises are too plain to be mlsundei stood.
Hearing in mind always that thei are offi
cers of the peace as -well as officers of tho
election, and never forgetting that where
the Stale statute conflicts tvlth the statute
of the United States touching these elec
tions, the national statute i paramount
and must be obejed, these officers should
go forward quietly, but resolutely, in tho
discharge ol their duties, without fear or
Javor, but with the Aim determination, so
far as in them lies under tho law, to eo that
there is an honest, free and Jair election.autt

dicliarcing tlielr uutles it is certain that
they will not bo resisted by any good clti.
zens; and it is not believed, that without the
support of good citizens, buch resistance
will be made by anvone.
or course all officers will be expected to
keep tho expeuses or supervisors and
deputy marshals at the Ion est point con

RULES OF THE ARMY
Were the Authority for the
Punisliment of Priyate
lams, According to
COL. HAWKINS' TESTIMONY.
He Relates Several Similar Cases in
the Eegnlar Service.
LIEUT. COL. STEEATOE'S STORY.
It Differs Little From That Told by the
A SPEEDY EKD OP THE CASE EXPECTED
The lams case, as heard in court yester
day, might be divided into three chapters.
Colonel Streator furnished one chapter, in
which he gave his Tersion of lams' punish
ment and the events which led up to it.
Colonel Gray, as deputy sheriff", contributed
another chapter, picturing the Homestead
riots and the causes which led Governor
Pattison to send the troops to the scene.
Of the last and the most interesting chap
ter Colonel Hawkins was the author and it
dealt with his share in the punishment of
lams, a vivid account of the alarming crisis
brought about by the attempt to kill Mr.
Prick and all the veteran soldier knew
about the punishments in vogue in the
Federal army during the War of the Rebel
lion. Colonel Hawkins' war stories in this
connection were as entertaining, if grue
some, as any that have been told
at camp fires. Judge Porter's contribution
was more important than at any previous
session of the court, for he practically ruled
that the main issue of the case had nar
rowed down to this: Were the defendants
actuated by proper motives in administer
ing the punishment to lams?
May Throw tho Case Out of Court.
Taking the court's several rulings yester
day it is fair to draw, the inference that
Judge Porter is satisfied that ths (punish
ment inflicted was in accordance with the
United States Army regulations, under
which, generally applied, the net organiz
ing the National Guard directs that body
shall be when in active service. In conse
quence of these rulings the probability that
Judge Porter will throw the case out of
court to-day, or so instruct the jury on the
law that under the evidence they will not
be able to convict, was freely discussed
when the session ended.
The proceedings began yesterday with
the imposition of a fine of 5 upon
W. J. Cooper, the youth who had ap
plauded in court the afternoon before. The
prosecution called two unimportant wit
nesses tnd then rested. Senator Bobbins
opened for the defense, which the line of
cross-examination had previously revealed
pretty fully. Mr. Bobbins proposed to
prove that the punishment of lams was
legal, called for by the crime, and properly
and humanely administered. The first
witness called was Colonel Gray, who re
lated at length what he knew ot the Home
stead troubles preceding the arrival oi the
militia. It was a repetition for the most
part ot what Colonel Gray has told in conrt
before in the cases against the strikers. He
showed, of course, that the condition of
Homestead at the time the Iami incident
occurred was critical, as it had been for
Questioned the Governor's Authority.
In his cross-examination the prosecution,
raised the question of the Governor's au
thority to call out the National Gnard as
distinguished from the enrolled militia,
Mr. lams contended that the Governor had
exceeded his authority, and that his order
calling out the troops was no protection'for
the defense in this suit. The Court over
ruled the objection and the Governor's
order was admitted.
At this time the conrt adjourned till 1
o'clock, at which hour Colonel Streator
took the stand. The story he told of the
whole lams matter differed very slightly
from that told bv the prosecutor's wit
nesses. The new light consisted in brief in
these facts: Colonel Streator had lett the
carrying out of the punishment to the regi
mental surgeons. The purpose of the hang
ing up was to prevent repetition of mutin
ous conduct. Dr. Neil bad reported to
wi tness that lams had swallowed tobacco
and was sick from that, and Colonel
Streator had told the doctor to cut him
down as soon as physical injury
seemed likely to result. Colonel Streator
had investigated other coincident cases of
improper comment upon the Frick assault,
and had reprimanded two -men who had
withdrawn the offensive remarks. It came
nut, also, that ill feeling existed between
Company I and Colonel Streator, dating
irom a previous encampment For this
reason the Colonel had delayed punishing
lams till Captain Worley, ot" K Companv,
returned to camp. Crosc-examination did
not shake the witness' testimony to any
Colonel Hawkins' Army Experiences.
After General Wiley had testified upon a
pnrely technical point. Colonel Hawkins,
another of the defendants, began atwo
hours' sojourn in the witness box He re
peated the narrative of how the message as
to the assault upon Mr. Frick was received
in camp. He graphically described the
critical aspect of affairs when lams uttered
the famous words which made all the mis
chief, and as to the punishment he testified
that he noticed particularly that lams' heels
alternately rested on the" ground while he
was banging, for half a minute at a time.
Incidental to this portion of Colonel
Hawkins' examination Judge Porter ruled
that all facts tending to illustrate the recti
tude of the defendants' intention in punish
ing lams might be broncht out, as the
Court believed that to be the mam issue.
In answer to Attorney lams' contentions
that the Court could alone instruct the
jury as to the lawfulness of the acts, and
that Colonel Hawkins' expert opinion as a
veteran soldier as to propriety of punish
ment was therefore incompetent, Judge
Porter held that the law plainly said that
the discipline of the National Gnard in
active service should conlorm with United
States regulations generally, and that
where a certain punishment is not for
bidden the legality of its infliction rests
upon the good faith of the officers and their
intention to enforce discipline. These rul
ings evidently pleased the defense.
Punishments In tho Regular Army.
So Colonel Hawkins opened a chamber
of horrors, and trotted out all the blood
curdling penalties he had stored in his
memory of active service in the Union
army a quarter of a century ago. For
lams' oflense Colonel Hawkins said he had
seen men shot to death, hung up by the
thumbs, bucked and gagged, spread-eagled
or staked out in the sun, tied to wheels,
and otherwise tortured till they fainted.
He remembered seeing 1G men at once of
the Thiriy-ninth Indiana Infantry in the
winter of 1833-4 hnng up by the "thumbs
for continual drunkenness and disobedience.
This hanging was much more severe than
the dose lams got because only the ball ot
the foot was allowed to rest on the ground.
The hanginz-up was always controlled by a
medical officer, as in lams' case, the conduct
of which Colonel Hawkins considered per
fectly regular. Another instance cited by
the witness was that ol man in the
Chicago Board ot Trade battery in the
Army of the Cumberland, who had insulted
a woman of the country, which was loyal.
General Thomas had theoffender tied to the
fifth wheel of an artillery caisson, and upon
It he was carried through the army for
miles. Colonel Hawkins said'he considered
this a good custom, but'- not severe enough
punishment in this case. Ho would have
shot the man. ,
Staked Out on the Ground.
Near Battle Creek, Tenn., Colonel Haw
kins had seen a man stretched out on the
ground as far as his limbs would go, and
then staked down. He considered this
commensurate punishment for disrespect
shown by the culprit to an officer. A pri
vate in his regiment, a substitute, was tied
up by his thumbs twice, till he fainted in
each case, before he would go on guard as
ordered. The witness said he did not
know that at one time it was
the correct thine for officers
to knock the men's teeth and eyes out He
considered the other punishments men
tioned authorized by custom in the United
States Army. He did not know that they
were no longer in use, but bad been in
formed by regular army officers that in In
dian wars, etc., of recent date, these penal
ties had been in force.
Colonel Hawkins also testified that after
denying lams a pass on the eventful July
23, at Colonel Sehator's special request he
granted it Under cross-examination he
had to repeat his belief in all the grotesque
ly horrible punishments as "good customs"
of an army in active service. Mr. lams
made a good deal out of this ghastly recital,
tBe eflect of which upon the jury was pro
nounced. A strange coincidence was that
while this dark side of military life was be
ing shown a military band, escorting the
County Democracy, and playing a quick
step, passed the Court House.

WORKMEN CRAYE FOR RELIGION.
Pittsburg the Center of a Tremendous
NEW INTERPRETATIONS OF OLD DOGMAS
"Pittsburg is the center of the most tre
mendous force. There is a great deal of phen
omena afloat in this city," Miss Annie M.
Stabler, of Sew York, said last night in a
brief but pointed address she made to the
Pittsburg branch of the General Theosophi
cal Society of the United States.
Miss Stabler is a pretty girl of probably
28 years. She is a comparatively recent
convert to the doctrine she preaches, but
she is just as earnest and sincere in her
cause as though she had grown gray in the
service. The young woman said she had
come to Pittsburg on private business.
The peculiar conditions she found prompted
her in inquiring abont the theosophists,
and the meeting last night followed her in
troduction here. The meeting was held in,
one of the anterooms of the Mercantile Li
brary. Old and Young Together.
Probably 50 persons were present, 'a
majority of whom were women. There
were, however, a dozen men in the gather
ing. The young man with his first concern
for religion sat with the old warrior, whose
shoulders were bowed with the weight of
years aud whose hairwas white as slackened
lime. Both listened with equal interest to
the peculiar teachings of the pretty girl.
The bnlk of the women were past middle
age. Not a few of them had embraced the
reconstructed religion in the evening ot
Miss Stabler was neatly and plainly
dressed. She wore a Drown frock with vel
vet trimmings. In her corsage she wore a
pink chrysanthemum. She did not remove
her jaunty brown hat She was introduced
by A. M. "Gow, President of the Pittsburg
branch of the Theosophists. In his intro
duction Mr. Gow explained that theosophy
meant a universal brotherhood of the human
race. He said the Pittsburg branch had in
the rast been decidedly inactive, but he
was hopeful that a revival was now at hand.
Miss Stabler explained that she wat not
an authorized speaker for the New York
society. She promised, however, that
during the winter other and abler speakers
w ill come lo Pittsburg. She told of the
comparatively recent conversion to
theosophy and with a bewitching smile the
said she had never been entirely happy
until she had abandoned dogmas and had
begun to think for herself.
Old as the Universe.
The lady referred to the fact that the
osophy was as old as the universe, and she
argued that the teachings of Christ bad been
warped and twisted beyond recognition.
She said hypnotism was just now demand
ing general attention, and she said that the
theosophists of old had predicted the exist
ence in the future of the present conditions.
History taught that a new theosophical
society had Deen formed at the beginning of
The prettjlittle woman said many more
things about her religion and then she
talked of the peculiar conditions she found
existing in Pittsburg. The labor disturb
ances had interested her and she explained
that people generally thought it was caused
by a struggle for money, but she insisted
that all the trouble was caused by an unsat
isfied craving for religious knowledge.

American Humane Association. He de

befote 1.G00 boys of Girard College last
week. Prof. Eaton, as wellas City Super
intendent Luckey, says that it is not
generally known that fatherless boys of
Allegheny county are taken in at the col
lege and provided for. They are received
'at the ages of 6 to 10 years of age, and kept
till thev are 14.
People prefer to hire boys that have been
brought up at this college, because their
training has made them rood and trust
worthy. Prof. Eaton is delighted with the
college, and he thinks the good work it does
should be better known.

Better Speed on a Ft. Wnyne Train Would
Help the Chicago Fostofflco.
Captain White, General Superintendent
of the Bailway Mail Service, was in the
city yesterday. He consulted with the
officials of the Ft Wayne Boad abont re
ducing the time of No. 7 a half hour. This
is the morning train to the Windy City.
Captain White says the present connections
of the train beyond Chicago are very bad,
and its arrival 30 minutes earlier would
reatly facilitate matters. The officials are
isposed to shorten the time when the
winter schedule is made up.
Captain White has been very busy for
some time making arrangements for the
World's Fair mail. Additional cars and
postal clerks will be put on. About ten
mail cars will be run daily to the fair from
the Bandolph street station, and the postal
matter for the exhibition will not pass
through the Chicago office.

NAMES TAKEN OFF THE PETITION.
Workers to Fe Hired as Individuals, Not
u Members of a Union.
H0XET FOE HOMESTEAD FK01I MDXCIE
A pres dispatcb last evening stated that
tbe committee of citizens who took tbe pe
tition of Beaver Falls buciness men to the
Carnegie Company in Pittsburg say tbat
they were assured the mills would be
started at the company's earliest con
venience. Both Mr. Frick and Mr. Dillon
are responsiole for the statement tbat the
plan is to operate the mills to the limit of
their capacity when they do resume, and
to make big improvements in the plant Mr.
Dillon will go to Beaver Falls on Thursday
or Friday of this week, and post up notices
stating when the mills will resume opera
tions. Engineering experts say, however,
that the salt water in the Beaver, at the
present low stage of the river, will effectu
ally preclued a start right away; and that
so lone as tbe discharges from the oil wells
continue the salt water will binder steam
ing with the Beaver river water at all
stages. In time of flood the difficulty may
not prevent the use of the water for this
purpose, but with things as they now are it
will cause trouble nine months in the
The Strikers Keep Their Secrets.
Several of tbe business men who signed
tbe petition to the Carnegie Companylhave
asked to have tbeir names taken off the list,
giving as 'a reason that at the time they
signed they did not fully understand the
import of the paper. The strikers gave no
sign to the general public as to what they
propose doing. It is an open secret, how
ever, tbat tbey are not unanimously in favor
of standing out to tbe extent of compelling
the company to fill the mills with non
union men. '"When asked as to their pur
poses they cive the answer tbat they are out
to stay until tbeir demands are conceded.
If this is the case, then the Carnegie mills
at Beaver Falls will be running with non
union men within a month. There, is good
authority for the statement that when
the notices are posted they will say, in ad
dition to an announcement of when the
mills will be opened, that the company will
have no further dealing with members of
the Amalgamated Association as such; that
they will re-employ most of their old hands
if the men choose to make their own labor
contracts, without reference to any labor
union. The additional clause that the
company will not presume to inquire
whether men so acting as individuals are or
are not members oh the Amalgamated As
sociation will have no significance in that
or any other community where the situa
tion is well understood asit means noth
ing so far as any concessions are concerned.
The members of the Amalgamated Asso
ciation must fight for the right-to make
their contracts as such members, or else stop
fighting these so-called labor battles alto
