During the day a number of new recruits
were gathered in, among them Repre

of absentees have shown up, and two or

The "Old Objector" Objects.
Holman and his associates are driven to
a threat of filibustering against the biU.
Holman last night made the declaration
that the appropriation should never pass
the house, and he has as chief assistants in
his coutest, besides Little aud a number of
other New Yorkers, Outhwaite of Ohio
and IJiiiley of Ttx.-is. The latter threatens
to defeat th- appropriation if he has to!

however, a quorum here, with seventy-five j
votes to spare, aud it is detiintely known

Judge Altgeld was on the floor of the
house yesterday. How he got there was
a mystery for a timp, but it was explained
that Fithian, Wil.iams and Formau pre

their escort without objection. The joke
was considered a very good one, for it he

Col. Iluvli and Judge Altgeld Talking
for the Fair K. of I- Orievance.
Washington", July '-2. Director General
Davis ami Judge John P. Altgeld (Demo
cratic candidate for governor of Illinois)
lave arrived in Washington to aid iu se
curing favorable action on the World's
fair appropriation. Davis said: "We need
just alHiut c7,OiO,O00 to rescue the exposi
tion from failure, and of this amount
ask congress to appropriate $5,0X),(XiO. The
remaining 2,'iOO,(XX) we will raise some
other way. The money must be forthcom
ing in order to complete the buildings and
provide more space. England is urgent
for additional room; so is France; so is
Germany; so is the Argentine Republic,
and scores of others. We have applica
tions for 1,000,000 more square feet of
space than we possess. Every nation that
has a language wants representation. The
credit and prestige of this government are
at stake. Having invited these people to
come over we must show them an exposi
tion that comports with our grandeur as a
Altgeld on the Political Aspect.
Judge Altgeld is confident of the success
of both the national and state Democratic
tickets in Illinois this fall. "Hut," he said,
"the failure of the World's fair appropria
tion may have a very considerable adverse
effect. The fact that a Democratic house
did not concur in the action of a Repub
lican senate will strike a good many voters
unfavorably and handicap the Democratic
ticket to an uncomfortable degree, but
just bow great a political factor the nega
tive action of the house may prove is dif
ficult of prediction."
Powderly's Complaint Committee.
J. W. Hayes, secretary and treasurer of
the Kninghts of Labor, and Joha Devlin,
of Detroit, and A. W. Wright, of Phila
delphia, members of the executive board,
are here with a grieveauca against the
World's. fair commission. They say that
foreigner have been given work upon the
fair grounds and buildings in preference
to Americans; that the eight hour law has
been violated; that the police have arrest
ed union workmen and that wages bave
been cut down- Concerning these charges,
Wright said: "We have no objection to

lutimation of a Boycott.
"We want American workmen employed
rather thmi aliens. One great trouble has
been the influx of thousands of workmen
into Chicago; there is not employment for
one tenth of them, and, consequently
wages have fallen materially in the build
ing trades. I hope to see all these matters
satisfactorily adjusted. No, we don't wish
to go into the boycott business, and wou't,
txcept as a la-t resort."
THAT ALLEGED SANDBAGGING.
Somebody Seems to Have Forced a
The story that Hayes and Devlin, the K.
of L. men, had tried to get $10,000 for cir
culating petitious for the fair has falieu
through itself. Gen. St. Clair says he has
been outragously misreported. What he
did say was that the knights said to him
that if they had $10,000 to do the work
with they could secure expressions from
all Ae labor organizationsthroughout the
country, and by thus bringing pressure to
1 ar upon congress, defeat the Sunday
closing Amendment nnd insure the passage
of the co,'0,0oo appropriation. This
makes a whole lot'' of differ
ence and acquits the knights of the
St. t lair and the Knights.
The Knights of Labor representatives
had a talk with St. Clair yesterday and
he repeated the above to them. They did
not deny having used the language at
tributed to them. Hut it was at once
seen that while an improper construction
could be il:iced upon the words t here was
no necessity of doing so, and after mutual
explanations the matter was dropped.
Will Work for the A ppropriat ion.
As a result of the conference the repre
sentatives of the knights expressed them
selves sat islied that the treatment of labor
organizations at the fair grounds would
le unobjectionable in the future, and they
promised to do what they could to assist
in passing the $.", KM, XKi bill through con
gress. The three men were at the Capitol
in the afternoon working for the senate
TliHt Meeting nt ili ieuijo.
Referring to the meeting ut Chicago be
tween the knights and the fair managers,
recounted in these dispatches yesterd.-',
the representatives of the K. of L. now
here said yesterday that they did hold the
conference; that an agreement was drawn
tip satisfactory to them, but that it was
necessary th:.t it bo approved by the direc
tory executive committee. St. Clair agreed
to secure this approval and they now un
derstand that tliis was done, though for
wine reason, an oversight probably, they
did not receive a copy of the resolution,
nor were they notified of its passage.
HAD STONES IN HIS LUNGS.
Remarkable Surgical Operation Per
formed at Chicago.
CillCAt.o, July -2. Surgeons K. W.
Andrews aud C. W. Crary, of the medical
board of pension examiners, have per
formed a remarkable surgical operation
on Major O. C. Tonne, a veterau living at
Argyle Park. He has been confined to
his bed for nearly a year from an abscess
in his right lung. Two months ago the
abscess was cut aud drained. His condi
tion became worse. Iwist Sunday Dr. An
drews determined upon another operation.
He opened the lung cavity for the better
draining of t he diseased spot.
Suhstance as Huril as Marbles.
After the incision was made almost' 'the
entire lung was found to be allccted, and
so four ribs were removed. In the cavity
was found a quantity of stony substance,
some of the pieces in-ing as large and as
hard as marbles. The wulls of the cavity
were petrified. Wednesday the patient
was feeling lietter than in weeks. The
physicians say the case is the most re
markable one tiiey ever handled. Nothing
similar lias been reported iu medicine.
They look for the major's recover.

O'Donnell and Ross Co to Jail In the
Pittsburg, July 2-J. Nearly 100 more
non-union men were put to work in the
Homestead mill yesterday. They were
brought np from Pittsburg on the steamer
Tide, together with 000 cots and a great
load of provisions for the men who are al
ready inside the works. The arrival of
the new men enabled the company to al
most fully man the building at the east
end of the works known as the armor
plate mill. The taking of the 000 cots to
Homestead yesterday is an evidence that
the company is going to do just what its
officials have said they would do if the
old men did not return to work yester
day, namely, man the works with new
men. There are now, with the things
taken up yesterday, accommodations in
side the big fence for at least 1,000 men.
Will Kvict 11 mis and I'oles.
The company has decided to evict the
Hungarians and Poles who occupy the
twenty-five company houses on Shanty
hill, just back of General Snowden's head
quarters. The heads of these families are
day laliorers in the mill and are on strike.
Just what will become of these families
when they nre thrown out of doors is not
known, as there are not twenty-five vacant
houses in Homestead which they can ob
tain. The company intends to use the
houses for non-utiion men, as they are
within the lines of Camp Black and will
be safe from molestation as long as the
Weihe Confers with Fattison.
President Weihe, of the Amalgamated
association, and Brenuan, counsel for the
strikers, called on Governor Pattion yes
terday, and were with him for an hour.
Wcihi? said they had come on private busi
ness, and the result was perfectly satisfac
tory to him. Brenuan would not say any
thing. It leaked out later that these two
men had ccme to ask the governor to try
and arrange a conference between the
strikers and the ollicers of the Carnegie
Steel company. Governor Pattisoii would
not say anything about the conference.
O'lloititcll ;o-s to Jail.
O'lionnell and Ross went to Pittsburg
yesterday and gave themselves up. They
were both put in jail pending a hearing on
an application for bail. O'Dounell has
written to the New York Herald a state
ments of the strike matter from his stand
point. It does not differ materallv from
statement he has made before. He says
he opposes vVilence and favors moral
suasion; that the Homestead outbreak was
not a common one; that he favors arbitra
tion and that the trouble here has not
been brought about by the workmen, who
were unusually generous and reasonable.
The Other Accused sneers.
Samuel Burkett, James Flannairan, Syl
vester Critchlow, and Anthony Flaherty,
the four men accused of murdering Pink
erton men in the battle of July . are be
lieved to be in Homestead. Burkett and
Critchlow say they will surrender them
selves if Hugh O'Donnell and Hugh Ro-s
are admitted to bail. Flannagan and
Flaherty are said to have determined not
to give themselves up or allow themselves
to be arrested under any circumstances.
Strikers Not Applying for Work.
At ti o'clock yesterday the limit set. by
the Carnegie company for applications for
employment had expired. With the ex
ception of a few laborers not one of the
old employers took advantage of the offer.
The situation ut the Pittsburg mills re
mains unchanged. The strikers have their
pickets out, and drive off any one attempt
ing to enter the mills to go to work. Three
hundred of the Homestead laborers were
given work yesterday on u new railway
near Millvule, a short dUtatice ftom here.
ATROCITIES IN IDAHO.
That Mysterious Foil rth of .July Canon
ArTuir Were liodiea Itnrned?
WaLLacK, Idaho, July 2. Rumors
were rife last night of startling discov
eries in connection with the Mission affair,
where in it was reported that many non
union men were shot, others wounded,
Ftfme robbed and their bodies disposed of
iu such a way that no clew either to the
perpetrators of the outrage or the disposi
tion of the bodies Las ever been found.
This much is known that a body of union
miners followed a car load of non-union
men into Fourth of July canon and that
much shooting was heard iu that direc
tion immediately afterwaid; that one man
of the non-union party is in the hospital
here wounded, uud that a numlier of men
I'.xniiiining Suspicions Ashes.
It is reliably reported that the authori
ties have full details and proof of the
crime committed there. Ashes supposed
to be of human bodies are undergoing
chemical examination. It is almost cer
tain that dark aud bloody deeds will be
brought to light. The perpetrators are
now iu the stockade here.
Caught a lyitainlter.
George A. Pettibone, captured and
brought in, is regarded as quite a take.
He is the man who put giant powder down
the penstock of the 'Frisco mill aud blew
it up. He is also charged with the killing
of Bean, a non-union miner, the first man
shot at Gem. He is in solitary confine
ment. Half a dozen prisoners against
whom there was no evidence were dis
charged on parole yesterday. The parole
is an iron-clad affair, binding the paroled
man to in no way interfere with the opera
tion of the mines.
