ANOTHER DAY OF QUIET.
Meetings and Conferences That Accom
HoHBSTBAD, Pa., July 9. Yesterday was
day of quiet, marked by no unusual
incident to disturb its peace, but the
troubles which caused the tragedy of
AVednesday are seemingly as far from ad
justment as ever. Funerals of three of
the men killed in the battle on Wednesday
were held, but they were attended only by
that reverential conduct that prevails at
cercmouies cf a similar character in times
of peace. The most important event of
the day, other than a mass meeting at the
rink, was the conference held during the
afternoon between Sheriff McCleary and a
committ e of citizens of Homestead. The
sheriff had been invited to meet this com
mittee and endeavor to effect some arrange
ment for the prevention of further trouble.
Proposition Made to the Sheriff.
Dr. Stadilen, a prominent citizen, acted
as spokesman. He told the sheriff that he
would agree to put a sufficient number of
reputable citizens in the Carnegie works
as a guarantee for their protection from
violence if Mr. Frick and other persons
interested would also go there. The sheriff
gave no promises and went back to Pitts
burg. On his way to the station he was
stopped by a saloonkeeper and asked why
it was necessary to keep ail the saloons
closed. The argument between McCleary
and the saloonkeeper attracted quite a
crowd, which grew so large that a police
man was obliced to disperse it.
Meeting; or the Mill Men.
The mill men held a mass meeting yes
terday, at which Attorney Brennan, coun
sel for the Amalgamated, told them that

that when the mi.itia came to the town it
would not lie for dress parade, but to
shoot; that the troops would occupy the
works and defend the non-union men put
in there. Other speakers urged that the
sheriff be permitted to occupy the mill,
because he was in sympathy with the men
and his deputies would le their friends.
The' all knew the law was against them,
said one speaker. Nothing was agreed
What Wiehe Keally Said.
Referring to manager Frick's statement
that while the rioting was in progress
Wednesday an Amalgamated representa
tive had i ffered to concede everything
except the change iu date of expiration of
the scale. Wiehe (who was the representa
tive referred to) yesterday said: 'What I
said was that the only point of difference
was the question as to when the scale
should expire, and with that out of the
way I was satisfied that the rest couki be
arranged amicably. Tiiat was all I said. I
simply wanted to do something to stop the
dreadful doings at Homestead. What I
did was in the interests of peace."
Drove Ont a Reporter.
The strikers liegan last night to carry
things with a rather high hand regarding
newspaper men. Those not known to be
in sympathy with the men were taken to
headquarters and examined. If they gave
a good account of themselves they were let
go with apologies. Robert Herbert, how-
oer, ui mr i - .... . . -;.,. was
snipped oui oi town, it was admitted that
his dispatches to his paper were not preju
diced against the strikers, but claimed
that he was personally unfriendly. His
answers not being satisfactory to his
cross-examiners as tohis personal opinions,
he was "bounced," and Mr. Hall, another
reporter for the same paper, was ordered
some ReuiarkH of the Leaders.
One of the leaders of the men in the
present difficulty said to a reporter yester
day that the difficulty could not be placed
on a basis of settlement until the men laid
down their arms. "We must take the
arms from the men," he said. "There
must be no more trouble and the orders of
the sheriff must be obeyed."

CONTROVERSY AS TO THE GUARDS.
Were They Sworn in or N'tit? Kemarks
by "Billy" PInkertoa.
PlTTSBUBO, July 9. The statements as
to whether not the Pipkertons were or
were not sworn as deputies, are very con
flicting. Sheriff McCleary says they were
not, but the Carnegie people insist that
they were. K. H. Spear, of Chicago, who
is at the West Pennsyluania hospital, con
firms the statement of the Carnegies. He
says they were sworn in by Deputy Sheriff
Gray. The latter admits that he was with
the party, but asserts that he did not ad
minister the oath to them.
