Speedy Action Upon Hearing the
News From Homestead How the
Matter Is Tiowed by Powderly and
Other Men of National Prominence.
The Carnegie mills at Homestead were
fbrxaally declared open by the Amalga
mated Association yesterday, and the great
est strike of modern times was ended. This
strike lasted 20 weeks. It cost, directly and
indirectly, a score of lives and millions of
Daring the past week there ,ha8 been
many breaks in the ranks of the loeked-out
men. These had become so serious that the
greater part of the men had applied for
their old positions and were anxious and
willing to return to work at once.
Several closed meetings of the Amal
gamated Association lodges had been held
last week, and before adjourning Saturday
night another conference was arranged for
yesterday morning at 10 o'clock.
Thr tuetIou Was Soon Decided.
The men were instructed to come pre
pared to take decisive action. When the
motion was put, whether the strike be con
tinued or the mills be declared open so all
who could get their old positions could
take them without interference from the
association, the question was soon decided.
The mectine nas presided over by Vice
President W. A. Carney. Secretary J. C.
Kilgallon, Assistant Secretary Stephen
Madden and Assistant President P. H. Mc
Evoy, of the National Council, were pres
ent and made short addresses. They did
not urge the men to vote either way, but
let them decide as they thought lest. A
i.umber of the steel workers made speeches,
but the opinions expressed varied. It was
evident that the spirit of determination
was not dead, and if the mills were declared
open, the Amalgamated Association at
Homestead would die soon.
Carried by a Close Tote
The motion to call off the strike and de
clare the mills open was carried. 101 to 04.
This was sufficient and the will of the ma
jority ruled. A few speeches defining the
attitude of the association toward the men
ere made by the officials and the meeting
adjourned sine die. The men hurried to
their homes and little was seen of them
about the town during the afternoon. They
kcjrt the action taken discreetly to them
tehe and the many inquirers as to the re
sult of the meeting were given no definite
A prominent member of the Amalga
mated Association was found at his home
by a DisrATCK reporter during the after
noon. He had attended the meeting, an'd,
wh le feeling keenly the result of the
strike.took in the situation philosophically.
The grate was piled high with burning
No Further Use for Them.
Pointing to them, he said: "I have no
more use for them. They contain the laws
and rules of the Amalgamated Association.
I hardly think the Amalgamated lodges
will be continued, for what benefit is it to
remain iu the union where nothing can be
derived from it? As to what was a potent
factor in our losing the strike, I would say
our own members. Too many of them re
turned to work, and helped
the company get its mills into
working order. Had all stood
out firmly I believe we would have won. I
Eay, therefore, it was not the company, but
our own men that lost the strike. As
everyone is now iree to do as he pleases, I
will make application for my old position
in the morning. I don't know whether it
will be given me, but I will try neverthe
less. Will Keep Up the Organization.
Secretary Kilgallon was seen after the
meeting. In speaking of the action taken
during the forenoon, he said: "The men
have made a brave fight, and the Associa
tion did all it could to assist them. When
it was hopeless to fight longer we
thought it useless to unnecessarily
sacrifice the men and exhaust , the
reserve funds of the Association, but the
men were allowed entire lreedom in the
matter, and we did nothing more than ad
vise what we considered the best course.
Uur efforts will now be directed to getting
all as well located as possible and without
further trouble. As to forfeiting the char
ters ot the Homestead lodges, that is entire
ly in the hands of the men. We have noth
ing to say in the matter, as they return to
work w ith the consent of the association.
and all are now in good standing. Benefits
to all the strikers will be discontinued. The
Amalgamated Association will go ahead
and not let up one dot in the earnest prose
cution ot its work, as this was only one of
the many disputes that arise between capi
tal and labor."
Homestead Again Hopeful of Prosperity.
The more conservative men of Homestead
were not surprised at the action taken yes
terday by the Association. The breaks of
last week left little else to be done. Every
one without exception,, expressed himself
as pleased that the end bad come and that
Homestead could once more settle down to
its nontcd business activity. Affairs of all
kinds in tne town have been paralyzed since
the strike began and the change is heartily
hailed by the business men. ,
Tne workmen seemed to think that all,
nitli the exception of those blacklisted,
would be ultimately given positions, though
they thought many would have to wait some
tim'e. A feeling "of assurance was every
where apparent in Homestead yesterday
and more satisfaction was expressed than on
any day since the stride was inaugurated.
LABOR'S GREAT BATTLE.
Kesnmo of tlio Causes That Led to the
Homestead Strike Thousands of Sym
pathizers Quit Work Sensational Inci
dents That Drought tho Big Borough
Into International Prominence.
The formal declaring off of the Home
stead strike yesterday closed one of the
most dramatic events in labor circles ever
in this country. The contest was brought
on by a demand for a reduction of about
33J4 per cent on certain classes of work in
the Open Hearth Departments Sa 1 and 2,
and in the 119-inch and 32-inch plate mills
at Homestead. The reduction directly con
cerned only a small proportion of the men
employed by the Carnegio Steel Company,
hat the other workmen took up their cause
through sympathy and agreed to standby
them in cas.e of a strike.
The scale underwhlch they were working
expired on June SO. The company wanted
Hie Amalgamated Association, which con
trolled the workmen in the mills, to sign
the scale at the reduction, to run until Janu
ary!. This the association refused to do. The
men threatened to strike should the request
not bo granted before July 1. On June 29
tho company locked out all its men, not
giving them the opportunity to put their
threat Into execution. The wage question
was soon lost signt of, and the contest for
the lecognition of organized labor begun.
Has attained International Fame.
Through this strike Homestead has at
tained an international name and has been a
potent factor In national events during the
past four mouths. It lias been tho rallying
point of all lahoi nnions in the country.
The town and Homestead mills were thor
oughly policed by the strikers from the be
ginning of the lockout and strangers had to
give a good account of themselves to remain
in the boiough limits. The company ap
pealed to the Sheriff lor protection. The
locked-or.t men advised Sheriff McCIeary
not to take po-session of the works, and
when a squad of deputies was sent to pro
tect the company's property they were or
dered out of the town.
Things went along in this way until the
morning of July 6, when tho company tried
to import two barge loads, or abo'ut SOD
1'inkcrton detectives into the mill as
nntchmen. The locked-out men rallied to
prevent their landing, and the memorable
riot of Homestead took place. The event
as heralded from one end of the country
to the other and the strike at once took on a
national aspect. Congress took up the mat
ter and bent a committee to make a special
inve&tliration of the case. In this riot nearlv
a dozen men were killed or fatally injured,
and tho number of wounded will never be
known. Governor Pattison was asked to
order out tho National Guard. He hesitated
to do so until on July 10 when, on the recom
mendation or Adjutant General Greenland
and a letter from Sheriff UcCleary, the
whole Pcnnsylt anla division was ordered"
Troops Take Charge of Homestead.
Within 1 hours tho Second and Third
Brigades wore encamped at Homestead,
while the First was held at lit. Gretna,
ready to move at a moment's notice. Wltn
the introduction of the State troops quiet
ms again restored to the town.
In order to induce tho company to Ttccept
the terms of the locked-out men, the men at
the other Carnegie mills were persuaded to
go into a "sympathy strike." By doing this
the men hoped to cripple the company.
On July U the men at the Upper
and Lower Union and Beaver
tails mills camo out. Attempts were
made to start up the Homestead mills non
union, but with little success. The leaders
in the strike weie arrested onJulvlSfbr
murder and riot. The troops atMt-Gietna
were sent home on the lollowlngaay, but
all the soldiers at Homestead lemained on
dnty. The efforts of the locked-out men to
organize an Amalgamated Association lodge
at Duquesne, among the locked-out men,
were successful, and on July 22 the men at
this plant came out In smrjathv with the
.Homestead locked-out men. The efforts of
tho Amalgamated Association to get the
men at the Edgar Thomson works at Brad
dock out were futile.
Taking New Men to the 3II1I.
Tho company meanwhile was directing
all its energies to the securing of non-union
men to take the place of the old workers in
the mills. On July 19 the steamer Tide, that
had played so tragic a part in tho riot of
July 6, took her first load of 17 non-union
men into the mills. This steamer continued
to make two and sometimes throe trios
daily to and from the mills and the Pitts
burg wharf. The number of non-union men
cairiedinto the plant by this means is esti
mated at 5,000, besides all the necessary pro
visions for keeping them in the mill in
closure. as few men went into the town.
Tho attempt of Anarchist Bergman to ns
sassinate Ciialrman Frlck. of the Cnrnegie
Steel Company, on July 23 in his office, on
Fifth avenue, was so bold that it caused in
tense excitement. His arrest and the sub
sequent search for Anarchists In the city
was tho sensation in police circles for some
time. The lams incident directlv crew onl
ot this, and this trial was so noteworthy that
ii auracieu gt3uerui,ubiGULiuii. i ueu tnings
had quieted down, tho Third Brigade was
relieved Horn duty and ordered homo on
July 26. From this the troop in the Second
Brigade were gradually reduced, the Fif
teenth and Sixteenth being the last regi
ments to leave the place. The latter regi
ment was on duty 95 days, the longest con
tinuous service done by any Suite troops
since the Rebellion. During the campaign
typhoid fever caused a number of deaths. ,
The Beginning of the End.
The work of introducing non-union men
into the mills continued with varying suc
cess in running the plant. The desertion of
skilled steel workers from the ranks of the
Amalgamated Association gave the com
pany encouragement and enabled them to
do better work.
Chirges of treason were meanwhile pre
f cried against the men who had partici
pated in the strike and taken the most
active part in its progress. Little change
was noticed in the ranks of the strik
ers until after election, when the spirit
of uneasiness became apparent. The men
stood firm until last week, when
after a loug conierence of 10 hours at the
Amalgamated Association headquarters
last Monday, a mass meeting of the strikers
was called last Wednesday in the rink at
Homestead. Meetings were held dally until
Friday, when, the first considerable break
occurred, the laborers and mechanics ap
plying tor their old positions. The Amalga
mated Association held out until yesterday,
when It lollowed suit, thus ending one of
tho greatest labor battles on lecord. The
amount lost In wages Is estimated at $1600,
000: for State troops $500,000; the company's
loss is enormous, out cannot bo estimated,
while tne expenses ot the trials now going
on will be considerable.
WILL MEET TO-DAY.
The Lawrenceville Strikers Call a Meeting
on Hearing Tliat the Homestead Strike
Was Off Many of Them Have Gone
Away So That Only a Few Kemain.
When the news reached Lawrenceville
last evening that the Homestead strike was
declared off, the leaders of the strikers at
the Union Mills at once issued a call for a
meeting; It will be held this morning at
10.30 o'clock. It is the general belter that
after the meeting the Lawrenceville men
will apply to Manager Dillon for work.
On June SO the Carnegie Steel Company
signed tho scale or the Amalgamated As
sociation for their Thirty-third street mill,
and on the day following the scalo was
signed for the Twenty-ninth street works.
At this time the Homestead strike was on
and a serious outbreak was threatened.
In order to bring about an amicable settle
ment between the belligerents the mill
workers in tne Twenty-ninth and Thirty
third streets works called a meeting on July
10. At this gathering a committee of five
was appointed to wait upon H. C. Frlck, of
the Carnegie Steel Company, with a view of
bringing about a settlement of the Home
stead tronble. Mr. Frick refused to receive
this committee. On July 12 another meet
ing was called at which the committee re
ported the non-success of their expedition.
It was then decided to appoint another com
mittee to visit Manager Dillon to give the
manager 48 hours to induce Mr. Frick to
open negotiations with tue Homestead men.
On the failure of Mr. Frlck to comply with
Mr. Dillon's request, the workmen were to
goont on a, sympathetic strike. Mr. Frlck
refused even to consider the proposition of
the men through Mr. Dillon. Accordingly
on July 14, the men of the upper mill, mini-
uering aoout i,tuu, ana tne nanus in tne
lower works, numbering nearly 1,000,
stopped work and declared a strike. Since
the strike is as inaugurated less than IS men
employed in tho finishing departments at
the two mills have returned to work.
At the present time, out of the 2,4 UU lJivr
renceville men who originally went out on
a strike, only one-half of the number are
still around. It is the opinion of the leaders
that most or these will return to work now
that the strike has been declared off. but tho
question that agitates them is will Mana
ger Dillon take them back.
HOW KNIGHTS LOOK AT IT.
Labor Leaders Express Their Opinions on
the Homestead Strike Would Like to
Have Seen the Men Win Seasons
Given for the Failure to Win.
A telegram from St. Louis last night said:
A copy of the dispatch from Homestead an
nouncing that the strike had been officially
declared off was shown to the leading men
in the .Knights of Labor.
General Master Workman Powderly had
not heard of the action of the Amalgamated
Association. After reading the bulletin he
shrugged bis shoulders and simply said:
"What have you to say regarding it,"
asked the reporter.
"Oh, nothing. I was not expecting such
news, but do not care to make any state
ment. I suppose the Amalgamated officials
know what they are doing. I would, of
course," he added, "have preferred to see
the workmen win."
Member or the Executive Board and Congressman-elect
from Kansas John Davis
said: "I regret that the workmen did not
win, hut I think it is better to have the ac
tion come now than later. It teaches the
workingmen this lesson: They can't fight
money and go hungry; they can't whip Car
negie's millions while their stomachs aro
empty. Evils of this kind must be met
at the ballot box. They must defeat the
agents of the corporations when they are
running for office. Some years ago our
Kansas farmers thought thev conld get
along by borrowing money at 6 or 7 per cent,
bnt they have learned differently. They
have also learned that, while experience is a
sad teacher, it is an effective one. I think
the Amalgamated Association did all they
conld under the circumstances.''
Messrs. A. W. Wright and John Devlin
tqok practically the same view of the mat
tor as did Mr. Davis, saying they were sorry
the workmen did not win, but that it was
better to give in now than later.
Mr. Dempsey, of Pittsburg, one of the
leading Knights of Pennsylvania, was mad
and plainly showed it, "Those men could
have won if they had only held out a little
longer." said ho. "I don't like the sur-
l ender a bit. The Amalgamated Associa
tion is all right; it has done its best. But if
it bad not been for the men at the head of
the Federation of Labor the Homestead
workmen would have won. This strike has
been run by that renegade Samuel Gompers,
who is President or the Federation,
and his followers. They could not
conduct anything. I have nothing
against thoFederatioh, but5he-Jmen at tho
head of it aro renegade fools. The Knights
or Labor of Pittsburg have done more foi tho
Homestead people than the whole Federa
tion, outside of the Amalgamated Associa
tion, and were still assisting them. But it is
through Gompers that the strike has been
deolaied off, and it Is bis fault that the men
did not win. And, because of his interfer
ence, a majority of the men will hot get back
In the mills. I don't like it a bit, and am free
to say so."
BETTER TIMES WILL FOLLOW.
The Mills at Beaver Falls to Kesumc To
Day With the Old Men.
Tho resumption of work at the Beaver
Falls mills of the Carnegie Company to-day
ends one of the sympathetic branches of the
strike growing ont of Homestead. The men
there had maintained a bold front throngh
the great struggle.andonly gave in at the last
moment and while there was a chance to get
back their old positions. The situation at this
place diffeied irom the other Carnegie plants
in that no effort was made to start tho mills.
When It was decided last week to begin
operations, and the old employes were of
fered their positions, they were released by
the association when the struggle was about
over, so that last Saturday they made ap
plication lor their former places. They
manifested little disposition to return so
long as tne Homestead strike was on, but
when one went the others followed in quick
succession. The company has signined a
willingness U take' back the old men, ex
cept six, who wero blacklisted for their ac
tivity in the strike.
The citizens or Beaver Falls are greatly
elated over the resumption or work in the
mills, as the town has been doing little busi
ness since the strike was declared. They
think that an era of prosperity will follow
the present dull spell, as tlm Carnegie Com
pany have stated that the plant at that place
would be enlarged soon.
SAVED BY THE SHEEP.
How the Life of a Schoolgirl, Lost In a
Storm, Was Preserved.
Boise, Ia., Ifov. 20. A heavy snowstorm
prevailed in Southern Idaho during the last
few days. Monday morning 2 elite Logan, the
0-year-old daughter of James Logan, of Hill
side, taking a well-filled lunch basket
in her hand and accompanied by a little ter
rier, started across the divide for school. A
short time after the girl's departure snow
commenced to tall heavily, and as she had
not at noon reached her destination it was
known that she was lost.
An active search was instituted and day
and night parties of white men and Indians
wandered over the snow-clad hills hoping to
uau a iruco ui lun missing cmia.
Her dog was found Wednesday frozen
stiff. At midnight yesterday the lit
tle wanderer was found alive and
well, bnt terribly weak, in one of Wilson &
Palmer's old stock sheds, with no compan
ions save a dozen fleecy sheep, among which
she had snuggled, and thus escaped death
by freezing. She said she lost her way
Monday and had been attracted to the cattle
shed by the bleats or sheep.

IFTECUI. Tlt-ICOIIAJI TO TU1C DISPATCIT.l
New YOBK, Nov. 20. It was announced
this evening tjjat it is Mr. Cleveland's in
tention to leave town either to-morrow or
Wednesday for a short holiday. Should he
carry.out his present programme it is his
desire that neither newspaper cor
respondents nor political friends break" in
upon his vacation. He has been pestered'
lately by reporters who want 10 know what
he bad for breakfast.
The news that the Pennsylvania Demo
crats are to urge William Frank Harrity
for a place in Mr. Cleveland's Cabinet was
received with satisfaction to-day by the
friends Mr. Harrity made in New York
City. They recalled that early in the year
Mr. Harrity started the Cleveland boom in
the Empire State, and that he is entitled
to recognition, not only for that fact, but
for his valuable services as National Chair
man during the campaign. Mr. Harrity is
now Secretary of State lor Pennsylvania,
and he is an officer of several banking in
stitutions in that State. He is not a rich
man, and his friends say it is a question
whether he could afiord to accept a Cabinet
office, a place worth $8,000 a year.
A Debt of S7.000 to Bet Met.
There were a good many Republicans in
town to-day left-overs from the .recent
deluge. Deacon Hackett did not observe
Sunday much, in his efforts to straighten
out the accounts at Kepublican State head
quarters. In all, the deacon is forced to face
about $7,000 in debts. Several eminent Be
publicans have had a discussion as to how
these will be met, and it is said that some of
the lucky ones will be paid in full, while
with others all sorts of compromises will
have to be made. Tho deacon has been in
Uttca since election day, sick in bed.
Ex-Collector J. Sloat Fassett is in town.
Certain Bepublicans believe that he should
receive the complimentary nomination of
the Bepublicans at Albany for Frank Hls
cock's place in tho" United States Senate.
Very few except those on the inside are
aware how nearly young Fassett came to
being made one of the Big Four at the Ke
publican convention in Albany, called for
the purpose of electing delegates at large
to the Minneapolis Convention. On that
memorable alternoon, when Naval Officer
Theodore B. Willis and his little coterie of
Brooklynltes arrived in the City ot Hills
and opened headquarters In tho Kenmoro lor
tne purpose oi ngnting xnomas L., natt, tne
anti-Harrison men were at first very much
tickled. They felt that they could beat Mr.
Willis without raising a hand, but when the
harmony of the convention was threatened
by Mr. Willis Senator Hlscock was ditectod
by the powers to visit Mr. Willis and comb
him down. , k .
How Hlscock' Was Brought to Time. .
Senator Hlscock did not wish to undertake
the task, and he would not until he was
flatly told that unless ho did so Mr. Fassett
would be sent to Minneapolis as a delegate
at large in his place. Even after that it was
all that Mr. Piatt, ox-Senator Warner Miller
and their followers could do Irom prevent
ing Mr. Fassett's nomination in tho conven
tion. Strangely enough the Bepublicans are
doing more talk about Federal patronago
than most of the victorious Democrats.
Now that President Harrison has appointed
John H. Gear, of Burlington, la.. Assistant
Secretary of the Troasury in place of Lor
enzo Crouse, resigned, ex-Senator George B.
Sloan, of Oswego, would like te fill tne other
vacancy in the Treasury Department caused
bv the letirement of Mr. Nettleton. Mr.
Sloan was deleated for the Congressional
nomination in his distiict, and Oswego did
not sbotf up very well on election day. The
drop in General Harrison's vote was 1,550
from the vote he received four years ago.
Some of the Bepublicans do not believe that
Mr. Sloan Is entitled, in view of this fact, to
Another feature of the 'patronage talk by
the Bepublicans is the objection in certain
quarters raised to the attitude of Collector
Hendricks, Surveyor Lyon, Naval Officer
Willis and Appraiser Cooper, who are quite
ready to accommodate the Democratic op
position with their resignations as soon as
Mr. Cleveland is ready to fill their places
All Advised to Hold On to Office.
The-nrgumcnt was advanced to-day that
these men should hold on" to their places
until they are removed by Mr. Cleveland.
In fact, it was said that none of the high
Kepublican Federal officials should resign,
but that they should wait to be removed.
In other words, the Bepublican opposition
wish to put President Cleveland on record,
and see what he will do.
The commissions of these four high Fod
eral officials are for four years, and the com
mission of Mr. Hendricks dates from Janu
ary 1 Iasr, Tho commissions of Mr. Lyon,
Mi. Cooper and Mr. Willis date from Janu
ary 1, 1890. All were appointed by the Presi
dent between sessions and weie confirmed
at the first ensuing meeting of the Unitod
States Senate. Tho Bepublicans eagerly
point out that the commission of Mr. Hen
dricks entitled him to serve until January
L 1&95, and that the commissions of the
other thieo gentlemen entitle them tore
main in office until January 1, 1S91.
It is known that very eminent Democrats
were very much displeased when Collector
Daniel Magono nut his resignation at the
service of President Harrison. Indeed, Sir.
Cleveland, who hail just leit the White
House, made it known tluough Senator
Charles P. McClelland, then the Collector's
special deputy, tbnt no Democrat should re
sign, but that all should wait to be removed.
Mr. Magone did not teel like accepting the
suggestion, knowing that President Harrison
wautea nis piace ior a uepuDiican.
It can bo said authoritatively now that
Mr. Hendricks. Mr. Lyon, Mr. Cooper and
Mr. wiuis leei just as Air. .magone aid at tue
time. They are perfectly aware that the
Democrats want their places, and Collector
Hendricks said last night that he couldn't
with self-respect do anything but endeavor
to accommodate the. opposition fairly and
sauarely. The Collector added tnat it had
been his intontion all along, even in the
event of the re-eleotion of General Harrison,
to resign as Collector on March 4 next.

ALMOST LYNCHED BT CMJRCn-GOERS
Chicago, Nov. 19. The annals of Chi

that which brought death into a home this

double murder was committed, two people
were wounded and the murderer narrowly

Herman Siegler, a German, living with
his wife and three children at the home of
his wife's parents, Henry and Carolina
Siles, shot his father-in-law and mother-in-law,
instantly killing each. His next vic
tim was his wife, but she was only slightly
wounded. Before the police were able to
disarm and arrest Siegler a number ot shots
were exchanged, and ne was wounded in
the right side by a bullet from a police
man's revolver. He was removed to the
Siegler occupied the lower floor of the
hause, while his wife's parents lived on the
floor above. It was in the front "part and
the. hallway downstairs that the shooting,
occurred. At 8 o'clock this morning Sieg
ler told his wife he intended going hunting.
He went to the house of his brother Will
iam, where he borrowed a shotgun. He re
turned at once to hls'own house.
His Mother-in-Law the First Victim.
He soon brought tho gun -into the parlor,
where the children were. His wife was in
the rear part of the house, and the first inti
mation of any disturbance was when Sieg
ler's littlelson began to scream. Mrs. Siles
hurried down, and as she entered the room
Siegler aimed the gun at her. She rushed
up to her son-in-law and, throwing her aims
about his nerk, tried to face the gun from
him. Then, pointing the gun against her
breast, he filed. She sank to the floortlcad.
Mrs. Siegler, hearing the shot, ran into the
house of Mrs. Fredericka Ueyden, calling
for assistance. As she passed through the
hallway she took her children with her.
Leaving the children in Mrs. Heyuen's care.
Mrs. Siegler hastened back to her home, and
as she entered tho front door another shot
was fired by her husband. It is supposed
that it was intended for Mrs. Siles, but soiie
of the shot struck Mrs. Siegler. One entered
her right ear, two found lodgment in her
left arm and one in her breast. None of these
wounds will result fatallv.
These shots aroused Mr. Siles and he de
scended Into the hallway. As Siegler fired,
Siles raised his right arm to shield his race.
It received the full charge. The fiosh was
torn from tho bone and a number of shot
entered his right side. It is believed that
Siegler then aischarged the other barrel of
his gun in his father-in-law's face, for por

Almost Lynched by Church-Goers.
The shooting occurred while, a large con
congregation was leaving a church cioso by,
and soon between 1,200 and 1,500 people were
surrounding the bouse. Tho murderer
stood a short siege by the police during
which several shots were fired. When Sieg
ler stealthily emerged from the house, he
was promptly seized and disarmed by ono
of the officers.
On the way to the patrol box threats pt
violence wore heard on every hand, and the
police saw a number or revolvers drawn by
citizens. Siegler was struck repeatedly In
passing through the crowd. At the police
station be made his statement. It was biief,
Incoherent and Indicative or insanity:
"As I was told by our Lord up above to go
and get a gun, 1 did it. I was bom to save
this country. The Lord said to me: To-day
is the day or judgment and you've got to be
there.' My mother-in-law is a witch. Shu
said to me: 'You've got to die,' and I said:
'I will not go where you want to send me.'

downstairs, and I was confused. I filed at
the old man and shot him. I ;lien went out
on the steps and the patrol wagons came np.
Then I was confused altogether. I have
been sick and have bad trouble."
Siegler's wound did not seem to pain him,
hut it bled profusely, and it was thought
best to send him to the county hospital,
where the docto-s, after a brief examina
tion, announced that the wound not prove
fatal. Mrs. Siegler, the wife, said:
"There was nothing to indicate that theie
was anything wrong with the mind oi my
husband." Late to-night Siegler talked
again of the shooting. "I only did what the
spirits told me, and when I get out of here

Holmes comit, first on the supposition that
It moves in a parabolic path, and secondly
on the assumption that its orbit is elliptical.
On the first supposition, tho distance or the
comet comes o"nt greater thin 100,000,000 of
miles; on the seconn, the distance appears
to be about 150,000,000. While these figures
are liable to be very greatly modified here
after, there appears to b" everv probabil
ity that this'comet is very far beyond the
orbit of Biela. It .also appears
almost certain that the distance or the
Holmes comef from the earth is increasing,
rather, than diminishing. Whv it was not
discovered weeks or months ago is a mys
tery, for it should have ben brighter in
Octobor than it now is. The ascertained
facts in regard to this comet will cause a
collapse of public interest in the matter,
but to astronomers it will continue to be of
great interest, since it presents problems of

and physical point of view.

Ashport at 6-30 o'clock and tho officers were

The officer of the watch ran through tho

Engineer Bailey attempted a similar duty
below tho decks, and 30 passengers camo
ashore. A number of laboring men had got
on the boat at Ashport and were soon in a
beastly state ot intoxication. It Is thought
that four of these men were burned to death,
as the engineer was not able to rouse them.
The stern of the boat swung around, and
it was thought tor a few moments that the
vessel would break away and drift against
other vessels in the harbor, but a current of

Social Democratic Congress has been a
disappointment to all the party's enemies
and to many of its friends. Its proceed
ings have been conducted with moderation
and skill, and have not been marred by the
unseemly scenes of former annual meetings.
To the Social Democrats themselves this
event came as a surprise. Up to the last
moment the men of brains in the party
feared an open conflict between Liebknecht,
the North German leader, and Vollmar, the
idol of the Bavarian contingent. Only the
Bavarian and Badcnese leaders knew that
the differences of the two men had been
The extremists and physical force advo
cates in the party are chagrined by having
been brought tamely under the same
standard with a J oral German like Voll
mar, and they are likely to stir up trouble
f about it after returning to their constitu
ents. The Conservatives, National Liberals
and even the Independents (Freisinnige)
are reduced to the extremity of merely
poking fun at the Social Democrats.
Liehknecht Denounced as a Traitor.
The editors of the organs of these partiei
try to make out that Liebknecht is a traitoi
to his socialistic principles because, when
the salaries or the VarwacrC s editors were
under discussion, he claimed for his mental
labor in writing leaders, etc., higher wages
than the compositors and other manual
laborers in the office received.
Some strange reports are to bo heard to
day in political qnarter3 as to the reasons of
Liebknecht and Vollmar for clasping hands
over the wide chasm between them and
their principles. These reports may be
taken for what they are worth. They credit
the Social Democratic leaders with having
accurate information that they are about to

Bismarck Not Tet a Dead Issue.
While ridiculing the idea that the Em
peror may recall Bismarck to introduce
another era or repression, the Socialist lead
ers feel in their hearts that such a turn of .
affairs is not impossible, despite the ap
parently widening breach between the
throne and the ex-Chancellor. It traced to
their proper source, these reports, however,
would piobably be found to emanate from
the neighborhood of Varzin.
The fact, plain to all, U tnat the modera
tion of the present Congress is distinctly a
personal triumph of the Emperor and nis
policy. The attitude of the Government
toward Liebknecht, Bebel & Co. has been
such that the latter could not beat.tbe big
drum without making themselves ridicu
lous. Hence the absence or lurid speeches,
and covert treason, such as distinguished
the congress held under the shadow or the
The most interesting incident of the dis
cussion on the resolution on state socialism
In the congress, yesterday, was August
Bebel's speech. The effort was entirely im
promptu, as Bebel learnod only a few min
utes before rising that the North Germans
would oppose the resolution on the ground
that it was not worded with sufficient force
An Absurd View of Rescripts.
The imperial rescripts of February I, ISM,
he said, were supposed by many to herald
tho advent of the socialistic state. This
view of them was absurd. They were, in
fact, a very commonplace statement of old
truisms, and were not even novel as Gov
ernment proposals. When Bismarck, ini
166-', began his fight against the Liberal'
bourgeoisie of Prussia, ho had thought it
possible to buy the support or the working
men with measures which nowadays would
bo included under the head or state social
ism. Bismarck tried to inaugurate the execu-
tion or his plan with the purchase of the
socialistic leaders. He offered to Karl Marx,
said Bebel, the editorship of the Prussian
Offlci'il Gazelie and to Wllhelm Liebknecht
the editorship or the borth German Gazette.
at the same time making promises ot social
and political reforms for the benefit or the
masses. The socialistic leaders took Bis
marck's offers and promises at their true
value, as they still refuse to-day to sell their
birthright for a mes of pottage.
"Socialism has made great progress since
then," continued Bebel. "The so-called
state socialists are to-day more numerous
than ever betore, and are to be found In tho
ranks or every party. Yet I venture to say
that Ktatn socialism ha3 never existed and
can never exist, becauso it is fatuity and
Stato Socialism Not Now Possible.
"It is the easiest thing in the world for
monarchs and their statesmen to promise
state socialism, but in society as organized
to-day it is impossible for them to translate
their words into deeds. Tho Social Democ
racy alone is able for deeds, because it alone
recognizes the necessity of first transform
ing or revolutionizing society. In this sense
the Social Democracy is revolutionary. The
Social Democrata must obtain possession of
the machinery of Government, and after
achieving this they will bo able first to re
generate the State and then society. At
such a time state socialism will mean some
thing, but not before." . . .. ,, ,
Bismarck's open acknowledgment that he
"doctored" the fatal Ems dispatch which
precipitated the Franco-i'rnssian War has
brought lorth a cloud of surmises as to his
object In thus revealing the most delicate
state secrets. The Coelnisch YolkszeUung, a.
clerical dailv, offered three days ago the
most probable explanation. It said: "Sev
eral recent pamphlets have questioned
Prince Bismarck's skill as a diplomatist,
and have urged that circumstances and not
Bismarck brought about the union of tho
German States. The pamphleteers have said
that the French declaration or war made
against Bismarck's will, or at least without
his interference, was alone tne nammer
