PirrsBrno, July 12. The movements of
the National Guard are jealously kept
aecret and it was almost impossible to say
where the troops were. Misleading reports
were given out as blinds. Correspondent
who got aboard the military trains were
held a W famuli and not permitted to
teleifraph unytriing. The whole force
entered Homestead this morning before
daybreak, thus presenting the strikers
from carrying out their plans of reception.

THEY DOTE ON THE MILITAIRE.
Homestead Striker Knthusiastic Over
the Coming of the Troop.
Homestead, Pa., July 12 A mass meet
ing of the locked-out workingmeu was
held at the Homestead rips' vesterday aft
ernoon for the purpose of considering the
reception of the military. Those w ho were
radical in their utterances against the
coming of the National guard stood in
their places and cheered w hen it was de
cided to receive the military with open
arms. All the speeches were conciliatory
in their tone. About 00 were present.
Hugh (J'Donaell, of the advisory commit
tee of the Amalgamated association, called
the meeting to order and invited members
of the advisory con mittee ana tne news
paper men to seats n the stage.
Taffy for the Press Hang.
Referring to the newspaper representa
tives in Homestead he said they were the
people who were wi h the locked-out men,
and had won fori hem the sympathy of
entire people of th United States. The
cheers that follow d this announcement
sounded strangely :o men who had, de
pite the efforts of the advisory commit
tee, suffered indign ties at the hands of
some of those who .oined in the cheering.
O'Donuell called on Burgess McLuckie to
preside. The burgess spike: "We are a
little anxious abot t the reception of our
friends, the militii ," he said, 'liome
think their coming bodes danger. They
are not dangerous j long as the dignity

the burgess. uHe u iderstands our posi

I say Robert E. Pattison will not per
mit insults to the iople of Homestead
snd surrounding cou itry." Great applause
followed. The burgess said that the
Pinkerton w ere com entrating their forces
and he realized that w hen their hireling
hordes struck the shores of Homestead
there must be bloodshed. "Every one

The governor, said Cirter, told hiai that
the jieop'.e at Homest.-ad were the most
intelligent ami honest people in Peansyl
vania. They had not done fSS worth of
dsmagetotiie Carnegie projierty. When
he talked with the gov -rnor the latter told
him there w-;us no probability of sending
troops to Homestead. "I think his reason
fordoing so." said Mr. Carter, "was lie
cause he believed ti e Pinkertons were
massing and he wanted to protect the jieo
ple of Homestead and not others."

they did. Tlie meeting finally adjourned
with cries of "Hold the fort" on the state

meeting the em my niiht be approaching.
"We have despatches that they are con

Tteiorlers Io So ne Scouting.
This report had licen circulated several
times daring the day, ; nd in onler to find
out just what truth there was in it two
newspajier men made a trip on horseback
through the Furrounding country. On the
outskirts of Homestead the strikers' pick
ets were seen watchi ig for snspicious
strangers. They made no attempt to detain
the correspondent eith-r going or return
ing, and it was plain th.it the strikers had
relaxed some of their v gilance in guard
ing the tow n. There ii a series of small
hills back of the Carnegie mills, and while
the country is open, most of the land being
under cultivation, there are several strips
of woods which would easily secrete several
Couldn't hind a Single "Pink."
Leaving the highway he reporters rode
through a section of tin woods which was
free from underbrush, but no men were
concealed there. Returiiug to the road a
detour was made by way of half-abandoned
cross-roads so tha the country for
three miles back of Hi mestead was cov
ered and the towu was intered at a point
nearly opposite to thi t from which the
start wes made. A nunberof workmen
in small bodice were ene mntered making
their way to town for he avowed inten
tion of seeing the militi i enter. No signs
of the presence of any of Pinkertou's men
mere is ."So trail for Worry.
The expedition disproved thetHtements
made by the members of the advisory
ci mmittee that Pinkerton men are mass
ing only a short distance back of the hills.
The Pinkerton force hovering on the out
skirts of the town and waiting an oppor
tunity to swoop down upon the strikers'
pickets and force their way through to
the mills is for the present a least a myth.

Watte Morgan Thinks Iteliginu and

Washington, JuIt 12. The last few
DC urs of the senate session yesterday were
devoted to a debate on the queuion
whether the World's fair should be closed
on Sunday . The apprcpriat ion of fSOOO,
100 fur the fair is contained in the sundry
civil bill, and when the consideration of
that measure was resumed the question
was on (Quay's amendment requiring that
the fair be closed Sunday. While the
matter was up for disevssion Saturday
tjuay had sent his argument to the clerk to
read, saying that he thought it would
prove conclusive. It w as the command
ment, -Remember that thou keep holy
the Sabnath day," etc. Yesterd ay Man
derson of Nebraska opened the debate
with the claim that the state of Iliinois
could be tru-ted with the matter.
"salilnlh" I Not a QssJ tVord.
He then criticised the language of the
amendment. The -Sabbath day" was t. t
ear Sandey. While he would not desire
the clang of machinery to tie heard in the
Columbian exposition On Sunday, he saw
no reason why the grounds, the art gal
lery and other parts of the exposition
should not Is- opened to the countless vis
itors. He instanced the beneficial res:;; s
which had followed the opening of the
Metropolitan Museum of Art of Sew
York on Sunday, and moved as an amend
ment to Quay's proposition to strike out
the words "Sabbath day and to insert a
proviso that the mechanical portion of the
exposition should be closed on the first
day of the Week, common! v called Sun
day. Patsaei af nilaats Agrees.
Palmer suggested that it would only b
fair and riglil to assume that the officers
of the exposition, who were appointed from
all parts of the United States, would
respect the opinion of the people of the
United State-, and would do nothing to
demoralize but everything to make the
exposition a source of elevation and im
provement. Personally, be concurred with
the views of Manderson, and thought it
Very desirab.e. w hile stopping the machin
ery, to have the grounds and all that was
beautiful open to the laboring classes and
visitors, instead of driving them eisewhere
for the Sunday. He thought the proper
course would le to refer this matter to the
discretion of those who were entrusted
with everything else which pertained to
the management of thi s great enterprise.
Pettigrew Strong for Closing.
Pettigrew was strong forSunday closing
and Sanders of Montana, equally strong
for the fair being wide open in every de
partment. He opposed both Quay and
Manderson. Vest said he should at the
projier time move an amendment similar
to Manderson "s with the additional pro
vision that a hall should be provided for
religious services for every sect aud faith.
The Nation's Salvation Involved.
Frye was proud to say he would vote for
locked gates Sunday, and would not vote
for the appropriation if not acco'iipauied
with this condition. He believed that the
salvation of the country depended upon a
nearer approach to the Sunday of the
early days. '1 here never was an English
speaking people on the face of this earth
that assented by law to the opening of
places of exhibition on Sunday.
MORGAN NOT A SABBATARIAN.
The Sunday Closer' Contention Has None
of His Sympathy.
Morgan said he supposed the return to
the Sundays of the early days meant a
return to the old blue laws of Connecticut
or Massachusetts, which made it a high
misdemeanor for a man to kiss his wife on
Sunday. Israelites.or Seventh Day Baptists
might justly consider the closing of the ex
position on the first day of the week a
hardship. He often thought it a merciful
dispensation that we did not know exact
ly the day of the week the "Sabbath"' fell
on. Much persecution had doubtless been
The Church and the Politician.
He opposed all attempts to unite church
and state. Who but the church made
this demand. Who but the politician con
cedes it? Not only was this au attempted
uuion of church aud state but it was an
attempted union of politics and religion.

The only o'her Sunday law illustrated
very forcibly the morality of congress in
dealing with the Sabbath, and he would
read it: "No malt, corn, grain, or other

wort or beer brewed or made, nor any still
used by a distiller at any time be'ween
the hour of !1 o'clock on Saturday night
and the hour of 1 of the next following
Monday, and every person who violates
this provision shall be liable to a fine of a

''There's a uuion of church and state of
politics and religion," said Morgan. "Brew

o'clock on Saturday night, then suspjeud
uniii 1 o'clock Monday morning, and then
go to work again, says congress."
THAT PLEDGE CHICAGO MADE.
It Ha Heeii Redeemed Fully and More
At this point Harris, after expressing
himself in favor of Vest's amendment,
asked Cnllom: "Did or did not the people
of Chicago pledge themselves that con
gress should not be asked to appropriate
further money for this exposition?''
Cullom They did not.
Harris What was the character of the
Cullom The character of the pledge is
incorporated in the act. They guaranteed
to furnish tlu,000,090 in aid of the exposi
tion, and according to the testimony of
the house committee which recent y visit
ed Chicago, ten millions and a half are
already paid in, or as good as n od into
the treasury, so that Chicago has not
only done all it agreed, but more,

Cullom added: "It proposes to do still
more. Chicago proposes to furnish from
IS.000.liOO to 3,000,000 more after the $5 -000,000
provided for in this bill shall have
been appropriated aud ued. for it will
take from 115,000,000 to $lT,.'.'n0 to ?et
this fair open. It is not the fault of Chi
cago: it is the fault of the earth, because
every country has come forward to ask
for nn.re space to exhibit."
Peffer Sees Moeh Hypocrisy.
Peffcr said that although the states of
the Union had laws requiring the observ
ance of Sunday none of them enforced
them. Senators themseloes. though now
engaged in theological discussion, received
their mail twice every Sunday and went
OB their little private excursions down the
river or elsew here. A great deal of this
talk of ours about the observ
ance of s md.iy was sher hypocrisy. He
favored stopping the running machinery
on Sunday and prohibiting the sale of in
toxicants at I'll times.
About this time tjuay concluded that
the debate could not be closed with the
session, and moved an adjournment, which
was agreed to.
