WABDSBB, Idaho, July 15. Despite the
threats of the strikers and the fears of the
people peace lias been restored tempora
rily at least. As late as yesterday morn
ins; the union men announced boldly that
they would not surrender to colored
troops and that t! e first black man, sol
dier or civilian, v ao showed his face here
would be fired upon. Telegrams were
sent out to the effect that a mistake had
been made in Bending the "black brigade"
to the scene of trouble; that but for their
presence the trouble might have been
settled amicably, whereas now dreadful
slaughter would ensue.
liefer Kenpectfully to Blue Coats.
Last night the threats of the miners were
unfulfilled. The strikers have restored
the Hunker Hill and Sullivan mills to
their owners without damage ;nd the dis
trict is as quiet as a section under martial
law can be expected to be. The soldiery
are respectfully referred to and not even
threats of what will be done in case non
union men are brought in to work are
heard upon the streets. Perhaps Gover

THREATS MADE AT WALLACE.
Noa-Vatoa Labol Ta He Resisted Ilcgard
lesH of Coaaaaeaeea,
WALLACE, Idaho, July hi. Yesterday
morning the members of the Mines" union
took twenty-one men non-union men
who had been working in Delashmutt'a
mine and had taken refuge in the bank
for protection from the bank and
marched them out of town. Some sixty
miners are being marched on toward
Thompson Falls and are fearful of being
slaughtered as were those who went out
Wednesday from the Gem and the 'Krisco
to Old Mission. Dalashmutt himself
has been in the C'OBUr d'AIene for several
days. Word was sent his bank that an at
tack Would lie made on it.
President O'llricn's Ultimatum.
The officers took the funds from the
bank and put them in a private vault and
put men in then; to defend the cash.
O'Brien, president of the Miner's union,
sent word to Del&shmutt last night that
his property would Yjot be disturbed, but
that any attempt to bring in non-union
men to work the mines would be resisted,
no matter Low much blood was shed.
Things were quiet here last night; the
presence of the troops caused peace. It is
probable that the mine owners will bring
in others to work the mines, if they are
He Sympathised on the Wrong side.
The report sent to General t'arliu at
Ward net that men were being run out of
this place because the; sympathized with
non-union laborers is confirmed. Wednes
day night a man named Kutlidge, who has
been expressing himself in sympathy with
the non-union men. came to the Fuller
liimsc. Yesterday morning alout fifteen
men went to his room, told him to fall in
and matched him out of town. When on
t lie railroad bridge some one said: "Let's
put his life to an end right here." The
miners consulted in private and made him
take an oath that he would leave the
( ceur d'AIene forever. He went.
Tile Arrival of the Troops.
Two companies of regular soldiers un
der Captain Randall are now here, and
one of Idaho militia. Other troops are Ile
itis brought in as rapidly as possible, and
it is thought that some of the rioters will
lie arrested very shortly.
LAW TAKES A STRONGER GRIP.
Homestead Practically Vnder Control of
HOMESTEAD, Pa., July 15. Martial law
has not been declared, but it is in exist
ence in Homestead. Major General Snow
den yesterday issued orders looking to the
prevention of further illegal arrests by
special policemen of the borough and
others. It was pract ically decided by the
general to issue orders much more radical
thau he did, but on representations made
by friends of some of the persons arrested
and insulted he changed his mind and
issued an order that places the town to
all intents and purposes in the hands of
the military, and subordinates the power
of the borough authorities.
Will Supervise the Town Omclals.
Had not these representations been
made to him, the police force would prob
ably have been suspended in its functions.
The orders give authority to the military
in all matters, except breaches of the peace
and criminal acts, and even in these the
action of the town authorities is to be
supervised by the state representatives.
It was impressed on the men that they
should take measures to prevent indigni
ties, such as illegal arrests of strangers by
immediately taking all parties concerned
into custody and bringing them before the
provost marshal for examination.
May Even Arrest Policemen.
The men were leii'd to make no excep
tions in the case of special policemen but
to take them into custody if they offend
ed. Pickets in uniform have taken the
places of the pickets of the workers on
the street corners and at the station. In
fact the whole town is picketed by the
provost guaru, anu VOL Kreps, the
prevost marshal, has been invested with
authority little different from that he would
have assumed uuder martial law. Under
the orders the lines of Camp Black have
been extended to include the town.
Gatherings or the Mill Men.
Three hundred men were discovered as
sembled in the rear of the buildings on
Eighth avenue, just below strikers' head
quarters, by the patrol shortly after dark
last evening. There were other gatherings
iu out of the way places about town. The
guards at important points were doubled
at once and orders issued which placed
the soldiers in readiness for any emergency
which might arise. A picket line one
mile in length was thrown out between
the town and the Carnegie mill.
Will (live Up Those Winchesters.
Hugh O'Donnell has wired Attorney
General liensel, at Harrisburg, asking
What disposition should be made of such
Winchesters captured from the Pinker
tons as might be recovered. Many of the
workmen who participated iu the battle
with the Pinkerton men have already ex
pressed a Williness to tu rn over capt ured
weapons to the proper authorities. It is
thotryht that possibly half the guns may
WALKED OUT OF THE MILL.
Carnegie's Pittsburg Workmen Jo on a
PiTTSBlK'i, July 15. Yesterday after
noon the members of the Amalgamated
association employed in Carnegie's union
iron mills at Twenty-ninth and Thirty
third streets, carried out their threat to
stop work unless a confeience was opened
by Frick with the Homestead workmen.
Shortly after 19 o'clock as their heats were
run the men began leaving the works in
squads. By 5 o'clock the mills were
practically deserted. The move was in
sympathy for the locked-out men at Home
stead and independent of the Amalga
mated association, the strikers voluntari
ly forfeiting any claim upon the associa
tion's treasury in the nature of strike bene
fits or financial assistance.
Just What the Mill Men Want.
This is just what the Homestead men
want. The grand lodge A. A. I. S. W. ad
vised all lodges in Carnegie mills to go
out. and in reply to the charge that such
a course would be a breach of contract,
the other mills having sistied the scale,
they take the position that the different
Carnegie mills are only branches or de
partments of one plant, and a refusal to
recognize the lodge of the association in
any one mill is an attack upon the associa
tion as a whole. Such an attack they claim
is sufficient to warrant the men goiug out,
though their own has no grievauce. They
Maim that the breach of contract is on the
part of the Carnegie people.
Meeting of Foremen at Homestead.
A meeting of foremen, superintendents
of departments and Ihiss mechanics of the
Carnegie mill was held yesterday at
Homestead and resolved tha' they would
not operate the works under an armed
guard. One prominent leader of the mill
men said that it would be utterly impos
sible for work to be resumed without the
co-operation of the foremen, as no men
can be found to take their places even if
non-union steel workers are obtained.
Well Fixed Tor a Long Siege.
One of the leaders said last night that
the steel workers could stay locked out for
six months without difficulty. The higher
priced men are in good circumstances
and none of the relief funds will go to
them. The day laborers and those who
ate maimed on iek or infirm will be at
tended to, and also t he widows and fam
ilies of the men killed in the battle with
the Pinkertona. The advisory committee
is receiving 600 letters a day offering as
sistance and sympathy.
THE STATESMEN GET THROUGH.
Close of the Investigation at Pittsburg
Into the Labor Trouble.
PITTSBURG, July 15. The congressional
committee completed its work in this city
yesterday and left at 8 p. ui. for Washing
ton. The lirst witness yesterday was
Superintendent Potter who distinctly con
tradicted Huberts, who gave testimony
Wednesday, by declaring that Homestead
mills were the finest in the world, the outr
put was 50 per cent, greater in proportion
to number of employes than any other
mill, and the pay higher than any other
for the same class of material. He was on
the Little Bill at Homestead the day of
the riot anil he swore that the strikers had
wounded three or four of the Pinkertons
before the latter returned the tire. Captain
Kennedy, watchman on the Little Bill,
gave similar testimony as to who tired
lirst. Oscar Colflesh swore that his wages
under the proposed Carnegie scale would
be reduced one-third, or from $144 per
month to $S5.
Frick on the Stand Again.
Manager Frick took t he stand again and
said that the firm lost money on every ton
of blooms, billets or sabs sold this year.
The company bad mortgages on the homes
of some employes, paying tl per cent, in
terest. Jr had never foreclosed one of
these. The men were allowed to pay
monthly. The company had $140,000 of
the men's money on deposit for which it
paid the men 6 per cent. The total
amount of mortgages held was $42,0X0.
He would not tell just what it cost to pro.
duce a ton of billets at Homestead, but
said that the average price for the whole
country was about $24. The McKinley
bill did not cause the fall in prices; it was
McLuckle's Conspiracy Charge.
The charge of McLuckie that there was
a conspiracy to reduce the market price
of billets he characterized as absurd. Mc
Luckie was a poor financier. The state
ment that the poorest paid men suffered
most under the proposed reductions was
not true, and he gave figures to back him
self up in this, and also in the statement
that only 325 men in all were reduced in
National Mining Congress.
Helkxa, Mont., July 15 The news
from Washington late Wednesday after
noon fell like a wet blanket on the free
coinage delegates iu the national mining
congress. The defeat of the silver bill was
announced while the committee on resolu
tions were trying to harmonize their views
on the subject. Events prove that the free
silver men will not have things all their
own way and it is probable that the
straightout old party men will secure the
adoption of resolutions on the silver ques
tion, following toe same lines the plat-

plan of raising campaign funds. It has
