Coeur d'Alene Growing More Warlike.
Homestead, Pa., July 20. The two
features of the situation here yesterday
were the arrival and military reception of
Governor Pattison and the commence
ment of work in the mills. Pattison did
not get off the train at the station, where
BUGn o'don-nelu n
there was a crowd of citizens waiting to
see him arrive. His car was switched off
and sent through the mill property, and
the first intimation the inhabitants had
of his presence was the booming of the
cannon giving the governor's fsalute of
seventeen guns. He was escorted from
the mill to Camp Black by cavalry and
was soon at home in a comfortable tent
erected for him. During the day he put
In his time inspecting the troops, which is
his business here.
Non-l'nion Men at Work.
The other feature was of infinitely more
moment to the strikers and their families.
It was something of a suprise to them to
see smoke issuing from the armor plate
mill yesterday morning, and they were
still more surprised at noon when the big
whistle was blown for the dinner hour.
The full power of the whistle was not put
in operation, but the people recognized
the old-time sound and many of them
looked down toward the entrance to the
works to see if gangs of workers were not
pouring out on their several ways to din
ner. But none came. There were work
men inside the works, however, and they
were pursuing their dtSties in a business
like way, seemingly without thought
that an armed guard was necessary to pro
tect them. These men were brought into
the works secretly by the company within
the past week.
How They Got Into the Mill.
Tbey came a few at a time until Mon
day when the company succeeded in get
ting in a number of workers sufficient to
gUHrantee the starting up the armor plate
mill. Some of these men were probably
landed at the mill between sunset Mon
day evening and daybreak yesterday
morning by the little Bill under protec
tion of the military. Later in the day the
Tide, a small stern-wheel tug, brought a
numlHT of men up the Monongahela from
the direction of Pittsburg and landed
them at the works. The company is be
lieved to have 175 men in the armor plate
mill; included nmong these are five steel
workers believed to have been brought
from the works of the company at Brad
dock. All the men in the mill, are, of
Turned Out a riece of Work.
Yesterday afternoon some of the new
workmen made a protective shield for
heavy marine guns in the presence of a
numlier of the militia officers. In spite of
these facts the leaders of the men "keep a
stiff upper lip" and do not appear down
cast. They stand by their contention that
the company cannot get the skilled work
men, and that if it does its work will be
boycotted by eveiy branch of trades union
ism which comes in contact with it.
Meanwhile the non-union men are in the
mill ready for another day's work. They
are provided with sleeping accommoda
tions in the armor plate mill and have
every comfort that the company could
provide. Their meals are cooked inside
the works nnd every preparation for a long
siege has been made.
THOSE COUNTER PROSECUTIONS.
The Amalgamated I'eople Not Certain
That They Will Stand.
The members of the Amalgamated as
sociation have practically decided to apply
for warrants for Frick, Andrew Carnegie
and others, but are still iu consultation
with counsel as to whether the warrants,
if sworn out for murder and treason, will
hold. They are determined to offset
the action of the company's officials by
obtaining these warrants. If possible, and
the men are confident that tbey will suc
ceed. The delay in making information
against Carnegie is said to be due to the
hesitancy of W. J. Brennan, counsel of
the association, in advising such a course
until permanent counsel has been secured
for the coming battle in the court.
SuhpoBuas Served at Homestead.
No attempt was made yesterday to
erve warrants on the five men in Home
stead who, with John McLuckie and
Hugh O'Donnell, are charged with mur
der committed on the day the Pinkertons
were repulsed. Constable Webber, one
of the trio sent out by Alderman McMast
ers Monday to arrest the five men wanted,
came to Homestead early in the afternoon
with subpoenas for people whose evidence
Is wanted at the hearing Barges Mc

was accomplished without trouble. When

tirely established. General Snowden hat
carefully considered the situation and he
evidently does not place reliance in tht
statements made that matters will remain
as peaceful as they apparently are at
presenter the troops are withdrawn.
After Kight More Strikers.
Secretary Lovejoy yesterday swore in
formations against eight more leaders ot
the mill men and warrants were issued
for their arrest.
The officials of the com
pany are not at ai
I worried over the report!
that informations will be made against
them. Secretary Lovejoy smiled when
asked if he had arranged for bail and
said: "We have no fears of any arrests ot
informations, and do not believe they can '
be so ill-advised as to take this step. 1
They were the trespassers and aggressors 1
nd are in no position to charge any crime
on the company or its agents."
Detectives Saw the Battle.
K. Y. Beck, one of the company's coun
sel, said yesterday: "It is not only true
that the company had Pinkerton men on
the ground, but that they had other detec
tives right in the works. These men saw
the whole battle and took notes of names
and events, and they are prepared tc
identify the men whom we have prose-1
cuted and those yet to be arrested in the
bloody affray. It is also true that they
took kodak pictures of the scene, which
are good enough to be placed in evidence

Conductor Threatened with Death.
A report that a Northern Pacific train
was stopped Monday night was confirmed
last night. Three armed men did it and
were boisterous and defiant in the work.
They waited for the train on the summit
nearthe Montana line, and after bringing
it a standstill told conductor Bradley
that he had been warned three times to
keep away from the country, and that if
he returned he would be killed. It was
this circumstance that lead to the sending
of troops to Saltese.
Warrants for tlirrest of Strikers.
Boise City, Ida., July 20. United
States Marshnl Pinkham started for the
Cceur d'Alene today with warrants for the
arrest of the leaders of the insurrection
against whom judgments were recently
issued. Warrants were issued yesterday
afternoon after Judge Haan had made a
showing on behalf of the Mine Owners
association before Judge Beattie. The
names of the men against whom warrants
have been issued are not obtainable, but it
is known that, only the leaders will be
taken at present.
Suicide and Superstition.
Cincixxati, July 2J. On Sanday, July
10, Frank Srewart, the son of wealthy
parents, but with a penchant for betting
on the races, shot himself in the side, in
flicting a fatal wound. Stewart was in
the employ of Colonel M. J. Enright, who
conducts a pool room in Covington and
has lost heavily. Superstitious fear on
the part of pool room proprietors caused
them to issue an order Monday prohibit
ing all their em ploy e3 from betting in any
pool room. The men threaten to quit
work and boycott the rooms if the order is
