Pittsburg, J1j 6 The much dreaded
has come. The PinkertonVand strikers
have come together with results of the
most intensely alarming nature.
Early this morning 300 Pinkerton men
on two barges went to Homestead to
guard the works of the Carnegie Steel
company. A great crowd of mn op
posed the landing of the Pinkcrton's, and
firing at once began between the boats
and the shore. The boats drew off short
and a battle rged hotly for several min
The s'.rikers then rocured a cannon
and trained it on the boats, and also
poured oil in the river and set it afire,
surrounding the ban;e with flames. The

ers, turned their suns on the strikers.
many of whom were hit, several being
fatally injured. The Pinkertons, how
ever, also suffered seriously.
Several thousand strikers hare arms
and intense excitement prevails.
The sheriff has reported the gravity of
the situation to Gov. Pattison and asfeed
HOMESTEAD, Pa., July C The first ag

of the Carnegie Steel companv to start
their mills in opposition to the wishes of
the locked-ont men was made yesterday,

those men whom, they claim
and Anxious to go to work, but are in fear
of bodily harm from the strikers.
Sheriff McCleary, accompanied by
Sheriffs Gray and Cluly, came from Pitts
burg at noon and repaired to the strikers'
headquarters, announcing that they j
would assume control of the Carnegie
Steel company's property, And would send j
some deputies to guard the works later in
the day, but before doing so. wished a tier-'
sonal inspection of the grounds.
The Sheriff Asks for a Pass.
They asked for a pass to visit to the in
terior of the mill, which was no only
given by the advisory committee, but a
body guard of ten men was furnished the
sheriff to show him everything in sight.
After an inspection of th
sheriff was escorted bsek to headquarsers,
where a committee was awaiting him.
The chairman of the advisory committee
addressed the sheriff as follows: "Mr.
Sheriff, the Homestead people, both be
fore this trouble came and since its precipi
tation, have expressed their intention of
not only guarding their own property,
but the property of their employers, the
Carnegie Steel company, as well. The
property is not endangered, but the bring
ing into Homestead of deputies, ostensibly
for the purpose of guarding, what is notin
danger, is unnecessary. Now we, the peo
ple of Homestead, wish to make an offer.
Offered to Protect the Property.
"We will place from fifty to 500 of our
best citizens inside of that mill to guard
that property if the firm think it is in dan
ger, and these men will protect the prop
erty with theirown lives, if necessary; and,
further than that, a bond of $10,000 will be
given for the faithful vigilance of each
man posted. We don't want deputy sher
iffs here, as it will precipitate trouble,
and therefore make this offer." Sheriff
McCleary said that he was unable to ac
cept the offer, although he acknowledged
the sense and fairness of the proposition,
and stated that he had been instructed to
bring fifty deputy sheriffs to Homstead
during the afternoon, and would do so.
Applied for an Injunction.
"You bring them at your own risk. We
hereby dissolve the advisory committee,
and we will not be responsible for any
trouble which may accrue from their com
ing," said the chairman. The sheriff then
left for Pittsburg.
SENT FOR GOV. PATTISON.
A False Beport About Pinkerton Men
An Indescribable Scene.
The word that the advisory committee
had been dissolved, and that the sheriff
would attempt to place his men inside the
works before night, caused great excite
ment, and in less than an hour a petition
was in circulation among the leading mer
chants of the town praying Governor Pat
tison to repair to Homestead immediately
and take some steps iMrard averting
trouble and possibly bloodshed, which ap
peared near at hand. A few minutes after
4 o'clock word was received that seventy
five blue-coated Pinkerton men had just
landed at the Union station, Pittsburg, on
their "way to Homestead, and fully 2,000
men within a few moments were distrib
uted along the railroad track near the sta
tion in readiness to receive the Pinkertons
should they attempt to land in Home-

o'clock word was received that ex-Sheriff
Cluly with eleven deputies, was rapidly j
nearing Homestead on the Pittsburg, Vir- j
ginia and Charleston railway, due at 4:48. j
A rush was made toward the City Farm ,
station, and when the train passed about
8,000 profile had congregated about the sta- '
tion, but the deputies did not appear. A
few momenta later a mighty shout came '
from 1,500 people gathered at Muuhall
station, above which is the main entrance '
to the mill, telling the crowd below that
the deputies had landed. The scene
which followed was indescribable.

brawny mill men. The deputies came
close up to the determined mill workers
who looked them square in the face with
out flinching, or moving an inch. Ex
Sheriff Cluly advanced and in a clear
voice said: "Men, we command yon to
fall back and give us entrance to the
property of the Carnegie Steel company,
which we have been detailed to guard."
And What Labor Hrplled.
There was silence for a moment, when
one of the workers stepped forward and
said: "We cannot permit you to enter the
mill. The mill property is not in danger,
nor does it require your guardianship, and
we think that should we admit you to this
mill it would be against our interests; so
we will not allow you to enter. Should
you wish to return to Pittsburg we will
see that you get safely out of town."
Labor Escorts Law Out of Town.
Ading Sheriff Cluly. after a few mo
ments' consultation with his aides, said:
"We will go back to Pittsburg, and will
depend on you for a safe conduct out of
town.'" A largo guard of workingmen
formed about the deputies and started
toward Amalgamated headquarters, where
the men were to be kept until the little
steamer Edna could be summoned to trans
port the deputies to Glenwood. There was
but little if monstraiion. Half an hour
later the march to the Edna, a quarter of
a mile distant, was bejun. Each deputy
was escorted by a workman, and none was
permitted to follow in their rear. Not a
loud word was spoken. Acting Sheriff
Ciuly brought up the rear of the procession,
with Burgess Mcliluckie. of Homestead.

As Sheriff Cluly steuned unon the trans
plank he turned and said: "I am much
obliged, boys, for your kindness, and now
I will walk the plank." The Edna pushed
off amid dead silence, and the little crowd
quietly dispersed. The Edna returned
from Glenwood at 3 o'clock, after placing
the sheriff's men within easy reach of the
electric cars for Pittsburg. The town is
now quiet, though every guard is at his

PlTTSBl lto, July 0. Secretary Lovejov.of

ing: -e uo not anticipate tnat auy at
tempt will be made to damage or destroy
the Homestead steel works. Our object in
placing the works under the protection of
the county is to protect our employes. We
expect to begin repairingour plant by next
Monday, and will put 400 or 500 man to
work, possibly more. We have a railroad
running directly through the plant, and
the men will be sheltered and fed inside
the works. If necessary, we can put 1,000
men to work, and there will not be the
slightest necessity of bringing them from
a foreign country.
Charges Breach of Contract.
"There are plenty of idle men right here
in Pittsburg who will go to work when
they see that protection is guaranteed.
We ask the sheriff for no specific number
of deputies, but expect that he will em
ploy a sufficient force. We do not think
that 100 deputies would be enough. We
have 700 men under contract at Home
stead to work for us. They have broken
their contracts."' Owing to dullness in the

we will do so tomorrow and the next day
if necessary, as we do not propose to give

it would be foolish for us to expect that
this will be the last attempt on the part
of the Carnegie Steel company to get dep

He Found Everything Quiet.
sherifft Cluly said, on returning from
Homestead, that he bad found all quiet
there. The decision to send the deputies
was merely a precaution, and they would
only be on duty inside the fences surround
ing the mills. Before leaving Homestead
Sheriff Cluly issued and posted the
customary sheriff's proclamation, warn
ing all individuals against any breach of
