HAKBISBDBG, Julv 11. The governor
has issued the following to General G. R. I
Snowdon: "Put (be division under arms
) ad move lit once with ali munitions to
the support of the sheriff of Allegheny
county at Homestead. Maintain the
peace, protect all persons in their rights
under the constitution and laws of the
state." Governor Pattison received the
following last evening from Pittsburg,
dated July 10:
"Governor Pattison: The situation at
Homestead has not improved. While all
is quiet there the strikers are lu control
and openly express to me and to the
public their determination that the works
shnll hoi h. t.,1 im them -
selves. After making all efforts in my
power I have failed to secure a posse re
spectable enough in numbers to accom
plish anything, and I am satisfied that no
posse raised by the civil authorities can
do anything to change the condition of
affairs, and that any attempt by an in
adequate force to restore the right of law
will only result in further armed resist-
anceand consequent loss or life. Unly a
large military force will enable me to con-
trol matters. I believe if such force is
sent the disorderly elemeut will be over- j
awed and onler will be restored. I there
fore call upon you to furnish me such

The governor replied as follows: "Have
ordered Major General George K. Suow

Guard of Pennsylvania to your support at
once. Put yourself in communication
with him. Communicate with me further
Signed. ROBERT K. Pattison-,
Snowden Orders the Troops to Move.
In response General Snowden sent the
following to Brigadier General J. B. S.
tiobin, commanding the Third brigade:
"lu compliance with orders from the
commander-in-chief, you will move your
command at the earliest moment, concen
trating at Lewiston, moving west on the
Pennsylvania railroad. Take with you
three days' rations and all ammunition on
ham!. Use every precaution to insure safe
and successful movement. The supervis
ion of transportation is in charge of Quar
termaster General McClellan."
General Snowden sent similar orders to
John A. Wiley, commanding Second
brigade, and Robert P. Ueohert, com
manding Firt brigade.
How the Troops Will Move.
The National guard aggregate? $.400
men, splendidly equipped, and as prepara
tions have been in progress for sevoral
weeks for tbe annual encampment of the
different commands they are in admirable
shape to go into the field. It is understood
that the Second brigade will occupy
Homestead, and in case it meets with
much resistance I he Third brigade will at
once move to its support. The First brigade
will follow on in case it is needed. In
other words, the Second brigade will be
the skirmishers, the Third brigade, made
up mainly of sharpshooters, will be the
line of battle.
THE NEWS AT HOMESTEAD.
It Appals the Strikers Advisory Com
mittee's Action The Outlook.
Homkstead, Pa., July 11. The report
that Governor Pattison had ordered the
entire national Kuards to Homestead was
received here at about 11:20 o'clock last
night, and it created intense excitement
among the comparatively small number
who heard it. A score or more of the
workingmen started out to investigate
and found the report true.
Action of the Leaders.
At a midnight meeting of the advisory
committee it was decided to co-operate
gT" -.T-T" "'"'""'"'"B
order and to impress upon the workmen
the necessity of preserving peace.
(tuanUmen Look for Trouble.
There is a feelimr amomr the national
guardsmen here that in case the guards
are ordered to Homestead they will be
nred on outside the city limits of Pitta-
burg, and it would be a fighting march all
the way to Homestead, where the final
battle would come.
A NIGHT OF VIGILANCE.
Reports ot Advancing Piukertons Keep
HomkstkaI), July 11. Saturuay night
was a night of alarm and v;gilance here.
About 11 o'clock information which was
received as alleged from a reliable
source in fact from a member of the A.
A. I. S. W. stated that a large train lod
of Pinkertons was en route to the mills..
Immediately Ii00 men armed with Win-
shesters were thrown out to the hill tops
to watch while other parties were sent
out as scouts. These scouts reported the
discovery of a number of small oarties
of men, some carrying picks and shovels
which were evidently new, in the valleys
back ol the town.
Said lliey Were lias ripe Men.
When questioned these men said tbey
were gas pipe men and were looking for a
a leak in the mains, but tbey were uot
believed. However, they were not molested,
and the scouts came back and reported.
The watch was kept up all night, but no
trouble arose. The alleged Piukertonsdid
not put in an appearance, and the usual
pickets were stationed while the night
watchers went to bed. The bt lief that
Pinkerions were near was joined to a belief
that some were in town in disgviise, and
led to the close scrutiny ami examination
of every man who could not be vouched
for. This was kept up all day yesterday,
ami tbe usual guards were set la-t night.
Plnkerton Men Gathering,
One of ,tlie leaders of tbe strikers was
ask"d by a reporter yesterday what the
outlook was for i he advance of the Pinker
ton force which was supposed to b assem
bling over luck of the hills south of the
Carnegie mills. He replied: "There is no
question ab Ut the presence of armed men
just south of ti e range of hills. Our scouts
have located them in a dozen places. They
are in groups and are moving about. They
are gradually getting together and will in
all probability make a feint upon some
P""1,1 " ,our
lines which tbey believe
weak. 1 do not think their tirst attack
will be a serious one. They are back from
two to three miles from the river and are
evidently waiting for reinforcements."
Advisory Committee Reorganized.
When the heriff paid his first visit to
Homestead Tuesday last and held a con
ference with the advisory committee, after
that committee hail permitted him to go
into the works, he told them that he could
not accept their proposition to supply a
posse to protect the mills, but must bring
his own men. He was told: "You briug
them at your own risk," and the advisory
committee thereupon dissolved. How the
sheriff's deputies appeared at Homestead
the same afternoon, and how they were
met at the railway station by a mob of

Concluded to Reorganize
But the advisory committee has reorgan
ized. When it disbanded July ball the
reconsls were burned for fear that memliers
might be held responsible for any trouble
that might ensue. In the reorganization
Hugh O'Donnell has been chosen chair
man, and he says their purpose is to pre
serve order. The members of the associa-
tion are all right, he said, and will lie
j orderly, but there is always a lot of "riff
raff that follows a strike and that must
be kept within bounds, and it is this busi
ness that the committee will attend to.
CENSORSHIP OF THE PRESS.
I'ackages of Newspapers Horned by the
The press men are tolerably safe from
interference now. F.ach reporter or corre
spondent has a badge with A. A. I. S. W.
printed on it and a written pass from the
leaders. But no unfriendly matter is per
mitted to be sent into the town.-whittever
is sen) out. A bundle of several thousand
copies of a Xew York paper, which was
said to have published an Unfriendly edi
torial, was received Saturday. Bach paper
was addressed to a resident always a
lOCKea-out worKman. I tie papers were
taken to headquarters, where a committee
opened them and examined the matter
printed. It was not satisfactory and all
the papers were burned.
Talk About Arbitration.
A report is current here that the mem
bers of the committee which will begin an
investigation of the troubles between the
Carnegie company anil their men will in
their individual capacity suggest arbitra
tion, and that a canvass of men who
would be eligible has resulted In talk of
selecting James G, Blaine, Major McKin
ley and Governor Pattison. Governor Mc
Kinlev is named to represent the protec
tion interest and Governor Pittisou for the
other side. There is some doubt as to tue
aveept ability of Blaine, as he is known to
j be a close friend of Andrew Carnegie. It
I is also doubtful if he woul 1 accept.
The Proposition Not Popular.
The mill men say they will not listen to
i any proposition in favor of submitting
matters in dispute to arbitration until
Frick or some one higher in authority
i retracts the ultimatum issued by Flick
1 that no union workmen would ever in the
future be employed in the mills. The
' workmen are also averse to submitting
' their troubles to arbitration by strangers
1 to them. They hold that if there is any
disposition to make a Settlement the agents
of the company can confer w ith their rep
resentatives and a basis of agreement
found, if one is possible. Neither do ther
believe the company will accept anything
less than the employment of the men as
individuals without the intervention of
the Amalgamated, and they say they will

OFFICIAL REPLY TO FRICK.
The Advisory Committee at Homestead
Sends It Out.
Homestead, Pa., July 11. Besides the
reply (already printed in these dispatches)
made by Hugh O'Donnell to Frick's state-
' ment of the facts in the case at this Doint
the strikers' advisory committee has con-
eluded to send out an official one, which is
given below, as furnished by the commit-
tee to the lress

a statement of the points in dispute, which
makes necessary a reply in onler that
wrong impressions of the conditions may
not be received by the public. It is as
serted that the employes, combined with
others of their trade forming the Amalga
mated association, have absolute control
over the Homestead works. This charge
can only be supported to the satisfaction
of those who deny the right of theeniploye
to enter objection to any conditions offered
by the employer.
Want the Privilege of Discussion.
"Neither the workingmen at Homestead
nor any other of the hundreds of mills or-
Kamzed lnlo the Amalgamated associat
have any desire to dictate the wages thev
shaH receive, but they see no good reason
why they should not exercise the privilege
of engaging with their employer in the
controversy through which the rate of

workmen are now, as they always h&ve
been, preftared to meet the representatives
VHS. CLEVELAND NOT RUNNING.
The Ex-I resident Says That His Wife Is
Not in the Knee.
BUZZARD'S, BAT, Mass., July 11 Mrs.
Cleveland has received a letter from Mary
Frost Ormliy, of New York, informing
her of the formation thereof a Frances
Cleveland Influence club, composed of
wives, sisters, and daughters of Democrats
to do campaign work. The following let
ter ha? been sent in reply:
"MY DRAB Madam: Mrs. Cleveland hns
referred to me your letter informing her of
the organicaMon of a 'Frances Cleveland

ant to dissent from the methods which sin
cere friends adopt, when their efforts not
only demonstrate their friendliness but
when they also seek to subserve the public
good and are, therefore, engaged in a pat
Cunnot Approve the Idea.
"It is, however, impossible for us to
approve of the use of Mrs. Cleveland's
name in the designation of clubs designed
to do political work. We trust you will
uot undervalue our objection, because it
rests upon the sentiment that the name
now sacred in the home circle as wife and
mother may well he spared in the oigau
izatiou and operation of clubs created to
exert political influence. Yours very
truly, gkovek Cleveland."

The house devoted the day to the con
sideration of conference reports, those on

naval and tbe legislative appropriation
bills were disagreed to and new confer
ences were ordered. The committee on
rules decided to report a resolution setting
aside next Wednesday and Thursday for
the consideration of the silver bill.
Prospects for Adjournment.
Washington, July 11. The question of
the adjournment of congress hinges upon
the disposition of tbe appropriation bills
now in conference and the silver bill. The
former are in coIiiTit'on tha they can be
disposed of in the next ten das. but the
return of the silver question adds an ele
ment of uncertainty to the situation. No
reason for deferring adjournment will
exist if the bill is defeated, and the speaker
and prominent members of both parties
believe that congress will adjourn by
Scolding at Our Institutions.
London, July 11. The Telegraph says
Pittsburg has been disgraced by atrocities
unparalleled in the annals of the old
world in modern times. The supineness
of tbfffederal government places the riots
on a par with the New OneaBs lynching.
These anil other similar incidents in
America suggest a serious dotih; whether
home rule works as satisfactorily in
America as it is the fashion to assert.
