PiTTsnriMs, July 19. John McLuckie,
burgess or chief municipal officer of Home'
Kend, slept last night
on a cot in one of
the cells of the county jail. Telegrams
were bfing sent to a dozen different points
between here and New York seeking the
aid of police authorities for the arrest of
Hugh O'Donnell, the leader of the strikers,
and warrants are in the hands of the officers
of the law for seven other participants in
the troubles at Homestead, and who are
but the vanguard of a small army of strik
ers that it is proposed to bring before t.he
bar of the law. The intention of the Car i
uegie company to institute criminal pro
ceedings against the Homestead leaders in
the event of the county authorities failing
to take cognizance ot the recent riot was
carried into effect much quicker than had j
The Informations I'iled.
Shortly before noon yesterday Secretary
Lovejoy, of the Carnegie company, enter
ed the office of Alderman McMaster and
asked the aldermau to draw up informa
tions against Hugh O'Donnell, John Mc
Luckie, Sylvester Crichlow, Anthony !
Flaherty, Samuel Burkett, James Flan
niean and Hugh Ross. The charge was
murder, and was based upon the claim
that these men had caused the death of T.
J. Connors, a Pinkerton watchman, and
Silas Wayne, a workman in the mills. '
Two informations against each of the ac
cused were drawn up, one for each of the
dead men, in one of the informations '
O'Oonnell's name standing first and in
the other second.
The Warrants Sent to Homestead.
The fourteen warrants were made out
and given t j constables, who went with '
them to Homestead. Colonel Ureen de- j their mothers, and did likewise. It is cer
tailed two companies of the provost guard ( tain that the leadeisof the strikers had an
to accompany me coustauies. upon going
to the homes of the accused none of them
was found at home and most of the resi
dences were kicked and vacant. Upon re
turning to this city it was found that Mc
Luckie had evaded them, come to the
city and surrendered himself. He said he
had sent word to the other men wauted to
come in and do likewise. McMaster
waited until S p. m. for them but they did
not appear, and he committed McLuckie
to jail without bail pending a preliminary
Will Return the Compliment.
While in McMaster's office with his
counsel and ot her friends, McLuckie said
that he had O Donnell were not leaders,
but among the smallest of the strikers;
and as for himself he did not know if he !
was any longer a member of the associa
tion. He went ou to sny: "I might as well '
come out with it and say that infornia-j
tions will be laid against Frick, Carnegie
and Pofter. Whether we will bring any
one else into it, I cannot say at present. 1 1
tell you we will make this man Frick
come down on his knees so hard that the

At Homestead a member of the advisory
committee said that the warrants to Ite
applied for against Frick et. aL would
charge murder and treason.
SECRETARY LOVEJOY FELT GOOD.
Every Man Known to Have lleen in the
It lot To lie Arrested.
Secretary Lovejoy was in good spirits
last night over this sensational move.
said: "There are good cases against 1,000 of
these men, and from now ou twelve to
fifteen informations will be made every
day. The idea is to make them just as
fast as the authorities can handle them.
We have evidence against 1,000 men, and
we propose to push these cases. The laws
of Pennsylvania are very broad on this
subject, and iersons who wenon the
premises at the time of the shooting are
liable, not only as accessories but as prin-'
cipai. Onr preparations Tor these prose-
cutions began ou June 21), when the uego-
tuitions between the company and the (
association ceased. Seeing the turn that
matters were taking, and receiving intima- !
tions and threats of the things the strikers
s i.h strikers
proposed doing we began our precaution
Detectives with Cameras.
"The names of the leaders who were
driving the strike into the groove that it
has taken were procured and arrange-!
ments were made to secure evidence in
certain emergencies. There is the strong- 1
est foundation lor the statement tut we
had detectives with cameras iu the mill at
the time of the shooting." He further
said that this was not a bluff; that the
cases would be prosecuted to the end; that
the law made presence, even if not a finger
was lifted, an implication in the crime,
because presence implied consent. O'Don
nell was regarded as the leader; men who
bad no band in the 'shooting and who ap
plied for their old positions would prob
ably not be prosecuted.
Will J'nt in Nun-l'ulon Men. .
He then went on: "We expect to bring
non-union men into the mill this week.
The non-union mon will only be sufficient
in numbers to till the place of men who
were engaged in this thing and whom we
will not take back. There are plenty 0
steel workeis in other mills who would be
glad to get work in the Homestead mills
by reason, of the good positions to be bad
there. We do not want to embarrass
other firms by drawing their men away
from them, but of course, it tney are win

Homestead, Pa., July 19. Never since
the night that Governor Pattisou ordered j
the state troops to Homestead was this !
littie borough thrown into such a state of
feverish excitement as it was last evening '
when the news went abroad that
Warrants, charging the leaders of the
strike with wilful murder, had been issued
in I'lttsourg, ana tnat six or seven men
charged had given themselves up to the
authorities. About 3 o'clock in the after
noon two men walked into the office of
quire Knhn, the local magistrate, and
inane some inquiries concerning the
iimtia ui raiurnce oi rsurgess .ncuucKie
and other strike leaders. They -g'nsed to
tell why they desired the inclination.
The inquiries were continued at other
places and suspicion as o the real charac
ter of the business of the two men became
aroused when they were recognized as
constables Price and Irwin.
Turned Jubilation Into Despondency.
That news soon became noised about.
While a suspicion that t he arrests were
anticipated had been prevalent for two
days, it was not supposed that the charge
against the strike leaders would be so

A few took the news quietly, the greater
number indulged in bitter words, but
took care that outsiders were not near
when they spoke them. Women gave way
to tears and declared that all was lost,
while little children, seeing their elders
weep, clung trembliugly to the dresses of
inkling of what the company intended,
but nevertheless, the news that warrants
had been issued came like a shock of a
thunderbolt to them. They had expected
that conspiracy would be the nost serious

Hasty summons brought the leaders to

town council also met. Their purpose was
to consider the arrest of John McLuckie, j
the burgess of the town. The talk of town '

outrage and the whole blume was . on '

respect for these two men. They fairly
worshiped O'Donnell. He was considered
a yonng Napoleon among them. He was
a born leader, quick to think and act; a
man of remarkable intelligence, who had
practically guided the workmen iu their
struggle. Hurgess McLuckie was also a
counsellor of peaceful methods, and had
done much to restrain the men from vio
lence. He was burgess at the time of the
strike of 1 !9, and was elected by the work-
men again this year, as they saw another

Wallace, Ida., July 19 The condition
of affairs in the Cceur d'Alene continues
to be alarming. There seems to be a con
victiou setting down that there is ou foot

The Troops on the yul Vive.
Scouts reported seeing many here ai r!
l,lere aua occasionally some would show
themselves at points round about. It was
lc"rlu an attacK was contemplated,
and the indications were that a move was
likely on their part to blowup the Granite
mill just below the town of Gem. Sunday
night reinforcements were ordered to Gem
from Wallace, and they were sent up on a
special train. Guards at the Granite mill
were doubled and the sentry force also.
Pickets were sent still farther up on the
hills, and all points werectrefully watched.
Yesterday morning another detachment of
troops was sent to Gem.
Threats front the Strikers.
A squad of twenty-five regulars started
up Xiue Mile canyou yesterday morning.
They will camp up there. The strikers in
the mountains have sent down word that
they intend to carry on a guerilla warfare.
This move has been expected lor some
time. Promised action on the part of the
troops in cutting off supplies from the
strikers, thus forcing them to come down
out of the mountains, would shorten the
Very Few Gun Captured.
With all the prisoners captured num-
bering two or three hundred, only five
i;uns have been found. They have either
been "cached'' someV here, or put into the
Lands of others. The Gem mine will start
up with a full force of non'-union men to
night, and the 'Frisco will start tomorrow
also with non-union men. eix of tha
prisoners against whom no charge can be
brought were liberated yesterday, and it
is probable that many others will be set
'ree ou parole.
