GATHERING OF THE DELEGATES.
The Sentiment an to the N ominee The
Omaha, July 2. The following state
meut has been published here regarding
the proposition to make Gresham the
nominee of the People's party. "We, the
undersigned members of the People's par
ty of America, called upon Judge Walter
Q. Gresham, at his residence, 2o02 Prairie
avenue, Chicago, on the night of June Ja,
1892. This pleasant conference lasted over
an hour, and during the time numerous
addresses were made by various members
of the People's party, in which every
member declared his desire that Judge
Gresham should be the People's party
nominee for president. To these expres
sions J udge (iresham made no dissent.
He Didn't Say He Wouldn't.
"While he did not, and could not as a self
respecting man, accept a Domination
which this committee had no authority to

done, say 'I will not accept the nomination
of t lie People's party at Omaha. ' Judge
Gresham is a statesman distinguished for

The sentiment for G-esham developed
rapidly yesterday until last night two
thirds of the delegates seemed to be in his
favor, and only waiting for a definite as
surance from him that lie will accept if
nominated. They are a illing to wait for
this until Monday, if they have to. Gen

the nomination. It is the friends of Geu

It is Weaver against the lield, with the

PlTTsiJuno, Pa., July 2. "Hereafter the
Homestead Steel works will he operated as
a nonunion works. We shall not recog
nize the Amalgamated Association of Iron
and Steel Workers in our dealings with
the men. The mill will be an opeu mill
where all men may woik regardless of
their affiliation to a labor organization."
The above is part of a statement made
yesterday afternoon by the secretary of the
Carnegie Steel company, limited, the new
86,000,000 organization. "It is our pur
pose," continued Mr. Lovejoy, "to run
that mill. It will be an open mill. No
doubt there will be a scale regulating em
ployes' wages, but there will be no ques
tion as to whether he belongs to a labor or
ganization. We shall do at Homestead
as we do at Braddock deal with the men
individually and no distinction will be
made. Such a thing as a union will not
be recognized and there will be no further
conference with the Amalgamated associ
ation." A Life and Death Struggle.
The above plain statement leaves no
doubt as to the company's intention with
regard to the fight at Homestead, and
narrows the fight down to a life and death
struggle with the Amalgamated associa
tion, the leading labor organization in the
world. Mr. Lovejoy also outlined the
policy which will be pursued by the com
pany in the present struggle. "We will
do nothing for the next week or so. That
time will be fully occupied in repairs. As
a matter of fact, only 800 men are directly
interested in this fight. The wages of
that number only are in question. Mr.
Prick is directing the policy of the com
pany in this matter. Mr. Carnegie know
ing only in a general way what is going
on at Homestead. Altout July 20 notices
will be served that the old employes may
return to their work at the mills by mak
ing applicat ion at a certain date. New
men will be put in the places of those
who do not thus apply. We can easily get
new men into the company 'sjworks."
Statement from Manager Prick.
Manager Frick says that three questions
are involved in the situation at Home
stead: 1. A reduction in the minimum of the
scale from to fc!3 for 4x4 Bessemer bil
lets. 2. A change in the date of the expira
tion of t lie scale from June 30 to Dec. 31.
3. A reduction in tonnage rates at those
furnaces and mills where important im
provements have beau made anil new ma
chinery has been added that has greatly

earningsof the workmen. Where no

made no reductfon in tonnage rates is
Effect on the Men's Wages.
He says thai of the 3.S00 employed at
the works only some 3S0 men are affected
by these tonnage reduction, and the
total number of employes who are affected
both by the reduction in tonnage rates and
in the scale minimum, including the 280,
is less than 828. Prick also contend that
there has been such an increase in output
ns to justify a reduction and Still leave the
earnings of the workmen practically un
changed, or in some cases but slightly re
duced, even at the reduced minimum, and
that in the near future these earnings will
be greatly increased.
THE MEN THINK DIFFERENTLY.
They Say the Cut At ill He 10 Per Cent,
nnd in Some Cases 40 Per ( out.
At 10 a. m. yesterday a notice was posted
at the entrance to the company's office At
Homestead enjoining all employes from
the highest to the lowest that they would
be paid off in full between the hours of
noon and 5 o'clock. About 4,000 men in
all w ill receive their money and also no
tices of discharge. A member of the ad
visory board of locked out workmen sai.l
yesterday; "Mr. Krick's statement that
only 886 men were affected by the new
scale is a mistake. Every man in the
mill sufTees by it and we can prove it. The
general reductions in all departments
range from t- to 20 per cent, and in some as
high as 4'i per cent."
Established a State of Siege.
Five hundred scouts are now guarding
Homesiead against t he approach of would
be workers, and the town is now an im
pregnable Gibraltar. These picket lines
extend to the opposite of the river. The
men doing guard duty, it is said, are
armed to ihe teeth. Each of the entrances
to the mill property is guarded by a force
of fifty men. All aflics clerks, watchmen
and superintendents of departments are
permitted to go and come unmolested.
None other, however, dare to even attempt
to enter within the gates.
Threaten to Dtirn Property.
It is rumored that two boats are being

large calliope steam whistle, to be used by
the men as a general alarm, was erected in
