Homestead, July 26. An indirect re
Buit of the shooting of Frick gave Home
stead its one existing topic yesterday. It
was the case of W. L. lams, the private of
Company K, Tenth regiment, who shout
ed "Hurrah for the man that did it" when
told of the act of Berkmann, and as a pun
ishment was strung up by the thumbs,
had one side of his head and half his
mustache shared and was drummed out
of camp. The lams case threatens to be
come national. Homestead people talk
of nothing else. Kven the return of Hugh
O'Oonnell after his release from prison
was subordinated by it. I setters and tel
egrams denouncing the treatment of the
young man have been received in Home
stead, in Pittsburg and by the governor
Correspondents Better Look Out.
When Colonel Streator was told of
the 'action of the Washington cor
respondents he said that if these
correspondents . came over to his
camp and made any such treasonable re
marks as those made by lams, he would
treat them in the way he-bad treated
lams. Young lams threatens to bring
suit against Colonel Streator and Major
General Snowden, but this is by no means
the most serious aspect of the case, if re
ports le true. It has caused much feeling
in the National guard, particularly among
the rank and file, and members of the
Tenth regiment are authority for the
statement that Company K, to which
lams belonged, will have to be disbanded
because its men do not intend to re-enlist
after their present terms of enlistment
The Officers Stand by Streator.
Oflicers of t he troops almost generally
approve Colonel Streator's action. Colonel
Case, of the Fourth regiment, told his
men that if any of them indulged in any
jubilation overlJerkmaun's crime he would
treat them the same w-ay. Officers of
lam's regiment were seemingly a unit in
upholding Colonel Streator. They grew
heated in their condemnation of the dis
graced private and lauded their com
mander for his action. A few of them,
however, made comments not flattering to
Colonel Streator's action.
lams Looking for the Colonel.
lams, the disgraced man, came to Home
steod yesterday from Pittsburg, where he
spent the night. He was looking for
Colonel Streator. He crossed the river
to the camp of the Tenth and was told
that Colonel Streator had crossed to the
other side. lams came back, bat did not
find the colonel. He then went back to
Pittsburg. Before leaving Homestead, he
told a United Press reporter his story.
"I was lying in front of Colonel Streator's
tent Saturday afternoon." said lams,
"when t he news came that Frick had been
shot. I shouted out 'Hurrah for the man
that shot him,' in a thoughtless manner.
His Manner Was Insolent.
"Soon after Colonel Streator mustered
the regiment and asked who shouted
'Hurrah for the man that did it.' I stepped
forward and Colonel Streator asked me to
make a retraction. He asked, in such an
insolent way that I refused to retract.
Then I was taken to the guard-house,
where Colonel Streator again asked me to
retract. I again refused and he ordered
me to be strung up by the thumbs. I was
hanging there twenty-eight minutes.
Every few minutes Colonel Streator or
some officer would ask me if I had enough,
or if I would apologize. I refused to apolo
gize." lams Will Sue for Damages,
lams said he did not like Frick, but
that be would have retracted what be
said had he been asked to do so in a gen
tlemanly manner. "I am an American
citizen and I propose to take civil action
to have this outrage righted. Nearly all
the men and many of the officers sympa
thize with me." The most interesting
feature in the case is whether corporal
punishment can be inflicted on a soldier
in a militia camp tinder any circum
stances, even when martial law is in force,
and whether a sentence such as that
passed on lams could be legally executed
without the formality of a court martial.
CHARGES OF A CONSPIRACY.
Pittshurg Police Say the Shooting of
rick Was the Ilrsult of a Plot.
Pittsisl"1:g. Pa., July 26. Karl Knold, a
local anarchist, was arrested yesterday in
connection with the attempted assassina
tion of H. C. Flick. Berkmann.the would
be murderer, stopped at K Hold's residence
for eight days btfore the Commission of
his crime. Knt.ld admitted this to the
police and said that he knew nothing of
Berkmann. The latter had come to him on
his arrival in Pittsburg and told him that
Most had giveu him his address, and he
thereuon gave him lodgings. Knold said
he knew nothing of Uerkmann's purpose.
The police insist that this Is not so, and
adhere to their first theory that a con
spiracy is at t he bottom of the affair They
do cot present any evidence, however,
that looks very stroug.
Berkmann l uite Chipper.
Berkmanu likes notoriety and the re
porters are giving him all the opportunity
possible to achieve the same. He says be
was born in St. Petersburg and educated
at the Gymnasium, one of the foremost
college in Russia. He speaks four lan
guages. He claims that the workingmen
of the country are with him, and scouts
the idea of a conspiracy. Said he: "I did
the whole thing myself, and all the credit
belongs to me." He has no fear of pun
ishment and is willing to taXe the conse
Condition of Manager Prick.
There was no change in the condition
of H C. Frick tLat would indicate that
his chances for recovery were other than
excellent. Last evening the surgeons
made a careful examination of his
wounds. No symptoms of blood poison
ing have developed and the greatest care
is being taken to prevent it. The exces
sively hot weather is a factor liable to
prove serious and retard Frick's recovery.
Dr. Litchfield hopes that bis patient will
be able to be out in about six v-eeks
Frick suffered sorno Sunday night and
was in considerable paiu throughout yes
terday also, but gave little sign that he
Still Manager of the Itasiness.
Frick insisted upon having the news- j
papers read to him and discussed the J
Homestead situation with some of his call
ers. He expressed satisfaction last evening
that a lare number of men were at work
at Homestead. He is still in control of the
business of the Carnegie Steel company,
lie insists on being posted upon every
thing that is going on in Homestead,
Dnquesne and the Union and the Heaver
Falls mills. Kvery move that is being
made is the result of the orders issued
from the sick chamber.
O'Dhnnell out on Ball.
Judge Magee gave his decision in the
O'Dounell case yesterday, admitting him
to bail in $10,000, and the other arrested
men were released on the same bond by
consent of the prosecution. In giving his
decision the judge said: "The first shots
came from the shore. There was a devilish
malignity on the part of the mob. The
evidence shows the defendant was not an
active participant in the killing, it shows
he was in sympathy with the crowd, and
he, by his idly standing by, is responsible
for the acts. The way it stands he is
charged with murder in the second de
gree." Slipped Quietly Into Homestead.
After his release O'Donnell left the
court-room by the rear and avoided the
crowd that wou'd have given him an ova
tion. Then he took a hack and drove to
the train and went to Homestead. Here
be got off before the train reached the sta
tion and went home, where it goes with
out saying he was warmly received by a
very happy wife. There was no demon
stration, these tactics preventing any such
action on the part of the strikers.
Situation at Homestead.
Two carloads of workmen, many of
them rkilled iron and steel workers, were
lauded at the mills yesterday. There
were about 00 of them. A Philadelphia
firm is employing men for the Carnegie
works and a telegram from there says they
had seventy employed yesterday, a good
proportion of them skilled. The Carnegie
mills in this city are now guarded by
police and it is expected that the company
will shortly begin putting new men into
TOM MANN ON AMERICA.
He Seems to Think We Have the Record
LoXDOX.July 26. The'attempted murder
of Frick, the Carnegie manager, has
aroused widespread attention among the
working classes. Tom Mann, the labor
leader, who is noted for the moderation of
bis views, is reported as saying: "The
British working classes will strongly con
demn any attempt at assassination under
the pretext of avenging the wrongs or as
sisting the cause of labor. Indeed, we
working people of Great Britain have
every reason . to oppose anarchy for we
have the making the laws ourselves, and
will soon have the full control. Then, if
capital treats labor unjustly we will pass
laws that will make the capitalists the
anarchists if they attempt to resist the
Our "Famous Assassins."
Mann added: "I am surprised to learn
that the assassin in this case is a foreigner.
All the famous assassins I have heard of
in America have been Americans, includ
ing the men who killed Presidents Lin
coln and Garfield, the noted Fisk and the
man who recently attempted to kill Sage.
The American record on the subject of as
sasinatious is an awful one. Two presi
dents have been assassinated within little
more than a quarter of a century, whereas
it is more than 400 years since the assas
sination of a ruler of France. Even des
potic Russia has only seen two rulers
assassinated in the present century, and
Mexico, the neighbor of the United States,
has not, I believe, seen a single ruler die
by the assassin's band."
Makes an Irish Application.
A prominent Tory said that English
men would feel inclined to condemn such
a crime as the shooting of Mr. Frick most
strenuously b&i for the slightly veiled
sympathy extended by Americans to as
sassinations and outrage in Ireland. In
view of the record of several hundred
lynchings and other murders reported in
the United States during the past few
months he did not think one more or less
made any serious difference to the outside
world. He did not believe there was any
danger of that method of settling labor
disputes being imported to England. It
was not the British way.
The Times Tackles the Question.
The Times says in regard to the shoot
ing of Mr. Frick: "Berkmann overstepped
the line, but his crime differs in degree
more than in kind from deeds of lawless
ness and violence which not many strike
leaders venture heartily to discourage and
which some even openly advocate aud de
fend. Mr. Carnegie's position is singular.
The avowed champion of trades anions
now finds himself in almost ruinous con
flict with the representatives of his own
views. He has probably by this time seen
cause to modify bis praise of unionism and
the sweet reasonableness of its leaders; or
are we to assume that the doctrine is true
in Glasgow, but not in the United States,
or that it ceases to lie applicable the
moment Jlr. Carnegie 'a interests are
Correspondents Make a Demand.
Washington, July iC. The Pennsylva
nia newspaper - correspondents located
here sent the following protest to Got
ernor. Pattison yesterday against the pun
ishment of Private lams: "The shocking
treatment of Private lams, Company K,
Tenth regiment, who was punished with
out trial at the bands of Lieutenant
Colonel Streetor, is a disgrace to the
military establishment of the state. Such
barbarity perpetrated by officials of the
state is a serious reflection on the com
monwealth. We therefore ask that Lieu
tenant Colonel Streetor be relieved from
further command. It appears that Gen
eral Snowden and Colonel Hawkins ap
proved the atrocity, and, therefore are
The Net Treasury Balance.

notwithstanding the fact that $11,300,000
has been paid this month on account of
pensions and nearly c7,UO.i,mo for the
quarterly interest on United Slates bonds.
"The Pinkertous Must io. "
New York, July 20. The Herald says:
A vigorous crunde against the Pinkerton
men, the initiative of which has been
taken by the members of the New York
Waiter's union, has just been started in
this city. The waiters claim that Pinker
ton men are employed at several near by
summer resorts, notably at Manhattan
Beach and Gen Inland; that this is a clear
violation of the anti-Pinker: on law recent

and therefore it Whooves all organized
workinginen to insist upon a rigid enforce
