Wardnek, Ida., July 10. Three passen
ger coaches loaded with the non-union
men who were recently sent out of the
county returned here at 2 p. m. yesterday.
They were escorted by a special train
loaded with regular troops. The trip to
Wardner was uneventful. General Carliu
had 400 troops drawn up around the
Bunker Hill and Sullivan mills and the
railway station. The strictest martial
law was enforced and there was not tue
slightest sign of disturbance while the
non-union men were being unloaded. The
returning non-union men were armed
with Winchesters. At the station they
leave up their rifles and marched unarmed
to their destination.
Kigorous Measures Against the Rioters.
Gen. Carlin issued a proclamation call
ing upon all the members of the Miners
union to surreLdcr. He later issued an
other order commanding all the strikers
to be arrested wherever found and dis
armed and imprisoned. He also dispatch
ed searching quads to Fourth of July
canon to hunt for dead bodies. He thinks
that the men who were killed weie thrown
into the river. When the surrender to
the union rioters took place there were
twenty men of the Ifeinkpr Hill and Sulli
van mines whorcrtitied themselves in
the mine. These men were found by the
soldiers greatlv exhausted by their contin
ual vigilance. They were relieved by a com
pany of soldiers." The,entire workinu force
of the mine will pick up tools at once and
begin operations in thetnine.
Arresting Tbem Right and Left.
At 4 o'clock the troops began scouring
Wardner, bringing in union men and
placing them in confinement in the guard
house at the camp on the ball grounds.
Fred F. Dean, secretary of the union, was
among the first arrested. President
O'Urien was another. At Wallace also it
is reported arrests are being made. The
Coeur d'AIene is virtually in the hands of
the military. Unless the union men com
mit some act of violence soon the time for
such conduct will be past. The men at
the mine will be supplied with Winchest
ers by the owners to protect the property.
MEN IN HOMESTEAD MILLS.
Some Non-l'nionists Do What the Pink
erton C'onld Not.
Homestead, July 16. There is no doubt
that non-union men are inside the gates of
the Carnegie plant. These men entered
the works quietly at an hour when sus
picion was stilled and arrangements for
their comfort have been made until a
larger force comes to join them. Some of
them are believed to have entered by the
river front while others have come by train
to Homestead and mingled with the peo
pie without exciting suspicion. Their
number cannot be ascertained, but it is
certain that no great body of men such as
would be requirrd to run the works could
have entei-ed the mills without being seen.
Two MsteriUK Canes of Smoke.
Smoke seen issuing from the chimneys
of two of the Carnegie mills for a short
time yesterday caused the suspicion to be
come prevalent that non-union men were
in the works. This suspicion died out
with the smoke, however, and while
the presence of the latter could
not be explained the workmen
felt confident that the fires from
which it came were not built to start the
mills. Last night more smoke was seen
issuing from what is known as the cupola
chimney and the caie of this, too, re
mained a mystery, laformation on the
subject was not obtainable from the mill
oflices. When the smoke began to issue
from the mills yesterday morning some
workmen who saw it made a dash for one
of t he gates and were kept back at the
points of the buyonets of the military
No Great Mystery About It.
The men who were supposed to be on
watch must have been very negligent, as
there was really no mystery about the
matter. The Tide came up the river from
Pittsburg yesterday morning and proceed
ed direct to the landing place at the
works. A gang of men were waiting her
and her freight, consisting of cots,
blankets, tents and camp utensils was
unloaded and placed in-ide the mill proper
ty. There is plenty of room inside the
mill fence to accommodate enough men
to run the works, and it is doubtless the
intention of the company to do this. At
any rate it can do uothiug else, for non
union men could not get a scrap bread in
Homestead. This is emphatized by the
fact that all the help at the Carnegie hotel
struck yesterday rather than proida
food for Gen. Siiowden and other officers
of the militia.
ANOTHER FIGHT COMMENCED.
Short and Sweet Correspondence That
Speak lor Itself.
Pittebuvg, July 16. The following is a
copy of a letter from H. C. Krick to tlft
superintendent of his Beaver Falls mills,
Jos. Wrigley. The letter is dated July 15:
"I am just in receipt of i he following tele
gram from Beaver Fulls: 'We, the Amal
gamated association of Beaver Falls,
the rod mill, wire mill and nail mill, have
come to the conclusion that we will re
fuse to work until such time u EC

"You will please say to Mr. Thornton,
chairman of the committee, and ask him
to so notify the men, that if they, compos
ing Amalgamated association at Beaver
Falls mills and who signed an agreement
with us for one year, do not go to work on
Monday next, or when you are ready to
start, we v- ill consider their failure to do
so as a cancellation of the agreement ex
isting between us, and when those works
do resume it will be as non-union, and
former employes satisfactory to us, who
desire to work there, will have to apply as
individuals. You can eay that under no
circumstances will we confer with the
men at Homestead as members of the
Signed. "The Carnegie Steel Company,
"By II. C. FniCK, Chairman."
1'ItiniMtiim to the I'nion Millmen.
S-'-retary I-ovejoy, of the Carnegie
f teel company, said last evening that the
employes at the Twenty-ninth and Thirty
third streets (Union) mills, now on strike,
had been verbally informed that theirfail
are to return to work by Monday of next
week would be considered by the firm as
a cancellation of the existing agreemeut,
and that when those mills do resume it
will be as non-union, and no one will be
treated with in this matter except as indi
viduals. This ultimatum is final, as is the
one given to the Homestead men.
Defense of These Strikes.
It has been supposed that the strikes of
the upper and lower Union and Beaver
Falls mills were not lawful, but a clause
in the constitution of the Amalgamated
association gives the necessary authority,
as construed by one of the officials. Sec
tion S0 of the by-laws reads that until the
scale as arranged in convention shall have
been signed by all the departments in
every mill the workmen shall remain
idle; and demands that the scale lie signed
by all departments. Consequently, the
strikes at Beaver Falls and the upper and
lower Uuiou mills, while the Homestead
scale h.s not been signed, are justifiable,
and the men in those mills will receive
the support of the general officers.

estimation of our rights and wrongs.

offered nou-uuion men coming here, but I ,
cannot offer I ha same guarantee to Pink-j
ertons, for every man, woman and child in
Homestead goes wild at the mention of
one. Mr. Carnegie may be able to get j
non-union laborers, helpers, blacksmiths,
mechauics.carpenters and painters, but all
these have to depend on the skilled men
who make the steel. Without the rollers,
beaters, shearers, cutters, and other high
priced workmen the mills cannot start,
and it is this class of men on which we
have the hold."
Have Always Favored Peace.
The leaders are evidently in earnest in
their instructions concerning non-resistance
to any attempt of the company to
put non-union men in the works, but tbey
find their fforts in this connection seri
ously hampered by the disposition of some
of the workers. The leaders claim that a
peaceful and legitimate fight has always J
been counselled by them and that the as
sault on the Pinkertons was merely an in
cident that could not be checked iu time.
Relieve They Will Win in the Kud.
According to the statements made by the
chief men in the association it will take at
least two years for the Carnegie conipauy
to train non-union workmen in the pro
cess of improved manufacture of their
prodncts, and during the period the com
pany will be seriously crippled by the nec
essary slowness of it work and the many
accidents and mistakes that would proba
bly occur owing to the ignorance of green
hands. A belief in the failure of the com
pany to secure proper co-operation in
maintaining its plant has given the lead
ers great encouragement (according to
their own stptements), and they sUtte that
a maintenance of the struggle on this line
will ultimately briug them victory.
A Foreman Ouits Work.
A number of incidents tending to en
courage the locked out mea in their posi
tion have happened already. Allen
Hubbard, the foreman of the armor plate
shop of the Carnegie mills, quit work yes
terday. He ref used to work under police
protection and declared that if the malitia
were to be used for police duty in order to
operate the mills he would not work;
there, but. would seek employment else
where. The entire force of the civil engi
neering department of tne mills also quit
work out of sympathy with the locked out
L'elp from the ltuildlng Trades.
Another source of encouragement to the
strikers is the indorsement of their coarse
by the labor unions throughout the coun
try, and tbey are elated at the stand taken
by some of these organizations of 'work
men in deciding to boycott the Carnegie
company by refusing to work on any build
ing or other erection where structural iron
or teteel manufactured by the Carnegie
company is used. Sentiment in this line
will be encouraged and urged at every op
portunity. Thirty-five bricklayers, . not
members of the A. A. I. S. W.,- hare re
fused to work in the mills pending' the
Itoycottlng Finkerton's Men.
Washington, July 16. It seems to be
the purpose of the congressmen to shut
out the hated Pinkertons from any busi
ness that congress can control. When the
house began the consideration yesterday
of the sundry civil bill there was no
trouble until the provision was reached
appropriating $tt,000 for a special force to
maintain order in the District of Columbia
at the G. A. It. encampment next Septem
ber. Then O'Neill (Dem.) of Missouri of
fered an amendment forbidding the em
ployment of any Pinkerton detectives as
a part of the force. Holman said be hoped
the gentleman would not obstruct the con
sideration of the bill at this time, and
promised that an opportunity to offer such
an amendment would be given hereafter.
With this assurance O'Neill withdrew the
amendment. . ...

The Railways Are Doing Better.
New York, July 10. Railroad gross
earnings, as reportetl to Bradstreet's, ag
gregated 58, 140,000 in June, 8 percent,
more than iu that month a year ago. The
gain in May this year over last was less
than 3 per cent., and in April less than 4
per cent., so that the last month is seen to
have brought a distinct improvement, due
for the larger part to granger and eastern
railways. For six months the total gross
earnings were $259,509,000, also about 8
per cent, more than in the first half of
1S91, during which period the increase
over six months of 1890 was less than 5
