fday morning 300 Plnkcrten dutcctlvcs
attempted te mnu at uomcsicae, irem a
Jsmall beat They were fired upon by
f.'&tecl workers who were en watch and
Jfa skirmish took place. About 100 shots
.'wcre exchanccu. Twe strikers were
"shot. The- Pinkertons were repulsed.
f In all about a dozen were wounded
Eer two hours before, the beats ar
rived 5,000 or 0,000 persons awaited
" thcir coming en the river banks.
V. The mills have a landing for beats
' within tlie, enclosure of the fence,
.nnd at first it appeared that thcre
if: .would be no way te prevent tluj Pinker
fjft ten's entering the mills. Shortly be
fore the beats reached Homestead a
horseman riding at a mad gallop spread
the alarm that the Pinkertons wcre
coming. As the beats steamed toward
the landing it was Impossible te longer
restrain the crowds.
With n. wlmnn and veil of derision an
f onslaught was made en the fence. Soen
one hundred feet of the enclosure was
tern away and 1,000 men were at the
A second battle took place shortly af
ter 8 a. m. The captain of the steamer
Little Bill, which carried the Pinker
tons there, was shot The firing for
senre time was almost continuous. The
strikers attacked the barges from both
pities of the river. It is said that four
Plnkcrten men were killed in this
scrimmage, and that their bodies fell
from the barge into the river.
At 11:30 a. m., the beat -'Little Hill,"
h j T wnicn teweu uie earges te iieinusieau,
V was seen coming down the river, a
large United States Hag Uying from the
masthead. The appearance of the
beat was the signal along the river
front for renewed activity both en and
off thc barges.
"She's coming te take the barges
away," was the cry rafecd en the shore.
As the beat enme nearer it was seen
that-she carried a squad of armed men
who were lined up en the side uext the
Homestead mills. When opposite the
converting department the men en the
' beat opened fire en these en the shore.
Fer ten minutes firing continued, the
Pinkertons In the barges joining the
men en the beat in the sheeting. The
men en the bank returned the fire from
"behind the furnace stacks, which they
used as a shield.
. Se warm was the fire from the nhore
that the men en the beat were driven te
"cover. Several men en the beat were
seen te fall, and it is certain that they
were wounded. Ne one en shore was
' Injured by the firing from the beats.
The Little, llill made un attempt te tie
tip with the barges, but this was impos
sible. The attempt te set fire te the
barges did net 'prove successful by the
raft process, and .another attempt wns
' Frem the converting department of
the mill te the edge of the river where
the barges are moored runs a switch.
On this was run a car filled with barrels
of oil, lumber and waste. Te this a
j lighted torch was applied and the car
cut loose. The flames sprang up a dis-
. tance of a hundred feet, while great
volumes of smoke rolled heavenward.
The crowds en the hillsides overlook
ing the scenes sent up a lusty shout as
word reached them of the intended
burning of the barges and ull en beard.
The car of lire rushed down the steep
incline in the direction of the barges,
and the men en the barges watched its
- approach with blanched faces.
Just then the steamer Little Hill
pulled in between the barges and the
' shore, "but en reaching the water the
car of flre came te a step. Tlie heat,
. however, was intense and the little
steamer was seen smoking het All
this time a continuous fire was kept up,
and it is estimated that 1,000 shots were
..'exchanged during this brief cngage-
ment Fer some reason these in charge
' of the cannon en the opposite shore did
. net fire a shot during the buttle.
The steamer Little Hill, which had
evidently received n fresh supply of
ammunition and reinforcement of Pink Pink
'erten's, continued down the river.
At 0:10 p. m. a flag of truce was dis
played by the Plnkcrten men nnd was
shot down. It was heisted the second
". time with the same result The third
time the flag was riddled with bullets
and hardly enough of It left te heist

f PiTTSUuiten, July 7. At a o'clock
Thursday morning a complete list of
killed and-wounded was net obtainable,
but as far as could be ascertained eleven
workmen and nine detectives were
killed; eighteen workman and twenty-
.. ene detectives injured in tne nattie.
in luuimen te uus uv icnst one iiunureu
detectives were seriously injured by the
strikers while en their way te the jail
Wednesday evening. One of these
-victims has since died of his injuries,
and another is dying.
During the all-day battle the beat
was bombarded for several hours with
a brass ten-peundcr cannon.
. Tlie stout oaken timbers forming the
sides of the beat wcre splintered, but
the heavy steel plates en the inside pre
vented the balls from penetrating the
interior. Jinny of the strikers, how
ever, were expert marksmen, nnd they
'sent shot after shot Inte the pert holes
in the beats, and inflicted terrible in
jury te the imprisoned nien.
When it was found that little iinprcs-
?, slen could be made by tho'ennnen en
' the beats, an effort was made te lire
' the barges, and thus compel the detec-
Uvea te leave the vessel "erTsuffcr the
horrible fate of being burned alive,
llose were procured and oil wnsgprnycd
en the decks and sides of the barges.
While this was being done, barrel after
barrel of oil was emptied into the river
above the mooring place, the object be
ing te allow it te float against the
beats and then Ignite It. This terrible
deed was attempted several times, but
the bouts did net burn, and then the
mob became infuriated and hurled dy
namite bombs at the vessels with great
Towards dusk efforts were again
made te hum the beats, with their liv
ing freight, and they would .doubtless
have succeeded, had it net been for the
interposition of the leuding elllccrs ei
the Amalgamated assoslatien, who went
te the scene of war In the afternoon.
Through their efforts it was agreed te
allow the detectives te surrender, but
this was net secured without the great
est objection en the part of the men,
many of whom have lest friends and
acquaintances during the day. Hesides,
as in all such outbreaks, there were
thousands of turbulent characters at
tracted te the place, and us they owed
no allegiance te any organization, could
net be controlled. They wanted te sec
the carnage go en, nnd it was net until
some of the strikers pointed their guns
at the outsiders that a hearing was ob
tained. At a o'clock the Plnkcrten men hung
out another white flag, and this time it
was respected, and a committee of
strikers went aboard te prepare terms
of capitulation. They guaranteed safe
conduct for the Pinkertons provided
they left their arms and ammunition
behind and agreed te leave the place
under guard. The detectives had no al
ternative, and promptly accepted the
terms, some of the men saying that it
was the first time they had ever sub
mitted te such a humiliating surrender.
When un inspection of the beats was
made, it was found that at least seven
of the Plnkcrten men had been killed,
and twenty or thirty wounded, many
of tlrem se badly that they will die. As
they were brought from the beat, they
presented a terrible appearance. Many
of them were besmeared with bleed,
while all of them showed signs of ex
haustien from the long confinement in
the close quarters between decks.
The most shocking and dastardly
deeds were committed while the prison
ers were being escorted through the
streets by the escort of guards appointed
by the strikers. An angry mob lined
the street en both sides. As the men
passed by, each in charge of two
deputies, the mill men and their friends
kicked and threw some of them down.
The unfortunate detectives begged for
mercy. Seme of them had pistol shot
wounds in their heads nnd three were
seen that had their eyes shot out Sev
eral were shot In the shoulders, arms
and legs, and could scarcely limp along.
Meed was running In streams down
their shirts, and they fairly yelled with
pain. Full thirty Injured men were
taken te the town halL One of them
had his eye punched out by an umbrel
la in the hands of a woman. Sand was
thrown in their eyes nnd they were hit
with clubs and ether missiles. Many
were knocked down with clubs, tramp
led upon, nnd some were tee weak te
walk when they started for the town
hall. The mill men used the stocks of
their rifles and struck the detectives
ever the head and shoulders, inflicting
serious and in some cases, perhaps,
As the precession reached the Amal
gamated association building, the de
tectives had te remove their hats and
salute the Hag. When they removed
their hats, men and women hit them
with umbrellas and sticks, nnd abused
them in every way imaginable. There
seemed te be a determination te kill
the prisoners, nnd it was with the
greatest difficulty that the demon-like
crowd could be restrained. The men
were finally ledged in the opera house,
where they were te be kept for the
night Theusunds, however, gathered
around the building, and the wounded
men were kept In a constant state of
terror, and It was long before their
wounds could be dressed.
After the prisoners had been removed
from the barges the rioters had their
revenge. They carried oil into the
holds, poured it ever the bedding and
furniture, and then set it en tire, first
securing them se that they could net
float flown the river and cause damage
at points below. When the flames
broke through the decks the cheers
which rent the air were deafening, nnd
the noise could be heard miles away.
The hills en either sh e of the river
were literally crowded with people who
could witness from this high point all
that was transpiring en tlie battlefield
and be out of range of the deadly bul
lets. The day wns ene that will be remem
bered with horror by the people of the
borough, as well as the citizens of the
entire county, who for the second time,
will be called upon te pay the enormous
amount of money entalled In the bhape
of riot losses.
This was the bloodiest labor battle In
the history of the country nnd the sec
ond ene that has occurred in this vicin
ity. This time there was no property
destroyed, as like there was during the
railroad iriet of 1S77. This mob was
thoroughly well organized, well disci
plined aud had efllcient elllccrs at the
head te conduct the operations. The
force embraced all the men employed
in the extensive plants of the Carnegie
Iren nnd Steel Ce. at Homestead, some
eight miles enst of Pittsburgh, aud a
bnttle, which for bloetlthirstlness and
boldness of execution has net been ex
celled lu actual warfare, waged from 4
o'clock in the morning until 5 o'clock
in the afternoon, and only ceased when
the force of Pinkertons, brought te the
plnce te suppress the strike, uncondi
tionally surrendered, leaving their
arms in the barges in which they had
been transxerted te the works.
The riot of Wednesday was the cul
mination of the troubles which have
bceif brewing at Homestead for the
past month. The Carnegie Ce., sub
mitted a scale te govern their workmen
In the steel plants, and announced that
It was thelr ultimatum. The scale made
a sweeping reduction in the wages of
skilled men,1 and ifWas officially an
nounced that unless the terms were
complied with bfcfore July I the places
of the workmen, would be filled by
ethers. This was followed by a premp premp
tery refusal en the part of the
company e recognize the Amalga
mated Association of Steel and Iren
Workers as such, or te confer with any
committee of the workmen, short of an
ncccptance of the terms offered. The
men stated they would nevcr submit te
the proposed reduction, nnd nnneunccd
their determination te resist any effort
en the part of the Carnegie Ce. te start
up their plants with non-union men.
As both sides were determined, "both
proceeded te prepare for the contest,
which culminated In such deeds of vio
lence and bloodshed that were wit
nessed Wednesday in the big hive of
Industry en the Monengnhela.
At !!:; Thursday morning a dispatch
from Homestead says thatanether boat

A flume I'inkcrtim Man.
PiTTsnuiten, July 7. Among the
scenes nnd incidents attending the sur
render and landing of the dis
comfited detectives from the barges at
Homestead, Wednesday, one especially
worthy of note shows the bravery and
coolness of one Plnkcrten man. As he
reached the river bank with his com
panions, they were assailed from all
sides by tlie angry crowd. In a shower of
stones and missiles of all kinds, this
man separated himself from the
ethers and begged for a hearing. In
the silence which followed he said: "I'd-low-citizens
When I came here 1 did
net understand the situation or 1 would
never have come. I was told I was
te meet and deal with foreigners. I
had no idea that I was te light Amer
ican citizens. I am a member of the
junior order, and I appeal te you for
permission te leave aud get myself out
of this terrrlble affair." The crowd
cheered him, and he proceeded un
molested. Antl-Sllverltc Will Net Kuithrr OpMic.
