Pittsburg, July 28. When Henry C.
Frick .was shot last Saturday he said,
while the doctors were engaged iu probing
the wounds, that the tragedy would have
no effect whatever upon the policy of the
company toward the Homestead troubles.
That he meant what he said was evinced
yesterday, when Secretary Liovejoy
appeared before Alderman McMaster and
swore out thirty-six informations against
as many of the ex-employes of the com
pany, and upou which warrants were
immediately issued. It was significant,
however, that these informations made a
change in the nature of the offence, the
men being charged with aggravated riot,
instead of with murder.
Two Significant Facts.
It is taken as indicating that the com
pany now doubts its ability to sustain the
main charge against any of the men, and
has concluded to content itself by pre
ferring a charge upou which there may be
a chance of obtaining some convictions.
It was significant also that among the
names of those included in the informa
tions were those of nearly every ex-employe
who has testified before the coro
ner's jury that the first shots fired on the
morning of July ti came from the Pinker
tons. Tlie fact that the company should
have selected these men as victims, es
pecially in view of the fact that as wit
nesses before the coroner's jury thoy
would most likely be expected to testify in
court, has created a great deal of com-

Tlie Advisory Committee on the List
The policy of suppression of names in
the matter of informations was again car
ried out vestertiav. and the ma
jority of the men against whom '
warrants were issued will have no
knowledge of tlie fact until they are
placed under arrest. It is understood that
new informations will now be made from
day to day for some time to come, but the
advisory committee is prepared with ample
bail and not one of the men will be al
lowed to stay iu jail an hour longer than
the machinery of the law will allow. Pri
vate information is also to the effect that
the informations sworn out include

Attempted Outrage in a Mill.
A remarkable escape from almost cer
tain death ou the part of the 144 workmen
iu the forge department of Carnegie's
Twenty-ninth street mill has just been;
made public, while the perpetrator of the j
fiendish act is yet unknown. An attempt,
was made .onday evening to blow up the (
boiler Hud engine departments of the lower
Union mills at Twenty-ninth street.
Tliese departments are in direct connec
tion with the heating and forge depart
ments, which iiave l-en in constant opera
tion since the remainder of the mill shut
down. One hundred and forty-four were
at work at the time the attempt was
made. Few of the men knew of the
threatened danger until it bad passed.
The engineer in charge of the machinery
had left his post but a few minutes.
Waft Only a Slight Kxplosion.
The waterman, whose duty is to keep
gnard of the gas, fires .and water, left his
positon to breathe fresh air on the outside
of the building. When he left his post
the gas was burning under the boilers.
Tlie gas is fed to the boilers through a two
inch pipe and the flow is enormous.
When the waterman returned he noticed
that t here was no tire under the boilers.
Not thinking to observe the usual precau
tion of shurtiug of the gas, he threw a
piece of lighted waste iuto one of tb-
grates. A slight explosion occurred.
Five minutes delay would have permitted
an acunimulatiun of gas sufficient to blow
the building to atoms and the workmen
PROPOSE TO EXPEL STREATOR,
. -c -
Private lams l'iiidn Champions in the
A sensational feature iu the Private
lams case was brought out when mem-
bers of the Randall club announced they
would take steps to have lieutenant
Colonel Streator expelled from the Ran
dall club. Colonel Streator takes an
active interest in the Democracy in Wash
ington county, but is a member of the
well-known Democratic organization re
ferred to that has its headquarters in this
city. Attorneys Dickey, Frank P. Iaois,
S. W. Trent, ami J. D. Watson held a long
consultation in Mr. lams office yesterday
in regard to t he proposed civil and crimi
nal action to !e entered against Colonel
W ill ISrliig a Civil liii:iSe Suit.
Attorney lams said after t he meeting:
"We have just wired Colonel Freer, of the
West Virginia national guard, to help us
in this matter. Colonel Freer is an uncle
of Private lams and is one of the promi
nent criminal lawyers of the state of West
Virginia. We expect to receive a reply by
telegraph aud we shall at once arrange a
tonference. We have spent several hours
in examining the Pennsylvania law, and
is shown clearly that Streator had no
authority for his actions, by either civil or
military law. V do not propose to take
any steps against Colonel Streator's mili
tary position. If tlie officers of the Na
tional guard will serve with him, and
Governor Pattison and General Snowden
take no action aud keep fcira tor a subor
dinate, then we have nothing to say. We
rbail prosecute Colonel Streator for dam
ages and for aggravated assault and bat
tery. Threatening Letters to Frick. -
It was learned yesterday that Frick bad
keen leceiving ihreatenidg letters for
Nearly every J
Ii. ore than u "month past.
li:iu brought lam one ot two iuceuuiary
missives, some ol which are said to have
been nce!iiiL'lT lurid. lu almost evetf
instance tliey were anonymous. Frick i
Iaid little act cut ion to these repeated
warnings, ami after showing them to one
crlwoof hii person;-.! trieuds destroyed
them, treating the matter more as a joke
than real menace to tiis life. About two
weeks ago the letters ceased, and this fact
excited some surprise. Last Friday, how
ever, Frick received a letter written iu
red ink in which was the following sen
tence: "Iu twentv-four hours you will be
YIany n True Word Spoken in Jest,"
The letter annoyed Frick no more than
did its predecessors. That afternoon
Frick and P. C. Knox, one of the com
pany's counsel, took dinner together at
the Duquesiie club. "Knox, I'll be dead
in twenty-four hours," Frick laughingly
said, as he handed Knox the letter. The
two gentlemen laughed about the matter,
but it is said that Knox retained posses
sion of the epistle and thereby hangs an
important clue as to the conspiracy to
"remove" the millionaire stell man.
Opinion of Carnegie in England.
Couucilm.-.n J. J. McGuire, of Pittsburg,
returned from a tour of England and Ire
land yesteruay. Mr. McGuire snj's that
Andrew Carnegie, by his course since the j
Homestead strike, has earned for himself
Vie contempt of all Europe. Ho says
the aristrocarcy and the working people
unite in denouncing his apparently uu- J
concerned altitude in the present trouble, j
They believe the great ironmaster should j
have taken the first steamer for America)
when lie learned of the
Homestead riot. J
They consider his recent actions a com
plete flop from the principles of his
Triumphant Democracy, ami say he
would build a more enduring monument
as a philanthropist bv raising his woiic-;
ingmen's vises than by the erectiou of
Tile Manager Out of Danger.
The surgion iu attendance upon Mr.

fortable day; that not the slightest unfa
vorable symptom developed. The surgeon
now considers Mr. Frick practically out of

Six More Men Arrested.
More arrests for complicity in the
riot were made today by Constable Morris,
of Pittsburg. The meu arrested were C.
W. Mansfield, a real estate agent and re
porter for the Homestead News; Peter
Xau, an ex-saloonkeeper;! Peter Allen,
Matthew Foy aud Thomas Connelly. The
charge against these meu is "aggravated
riot." Constable Morris had oilier war
rants with him. One was for Burgess
McLuckie. who is out on bail pending
trial for willful murder. The secoud
chirge is "aggravated riot." He was not
arrested, but will give himself up. An
other warrant on the charge of "aggravat
ed riot" was served on Captain O. C.
Coon, formerly a captain in the national
guard. Captain Coon went to Pittsburg
last night and gave himself up and was
released on S-.'.UUObail.aswere all the others

The Carnegie Com puny Will Act as Hank
ers No Longer.
PiTTsri'i;;, July 28. From his sick
room yesterday Chairmau Frick issued
orders that 800 of the following notices
should be sent to the employes of the com
pany who have quit work jjt Homestead,
vuTe3 lh he agreement covering the spec- I
la 1 deposit of money made by you with
Carnegie, Pjipps !c Co., limited, you are
hereby notified that, having left the em
ploy of the company you are no lougeren
titled to receive interest on said deposit.
Interest ceased at this date, and the prin
cipal will be paid you ou demand at the
general offices, or on one day's written no
tice sent in from the works."
Aui'iuuti to m Large Sum.
This special deposit arrangement was
inaugurated by the company iu 1Ss6 and
aggregates about $180,000, ranging from
small investments to as high as 2,U00, the
limit of investment allowed. The plan
was put in force to allow the men an op
portunity to secure homes for themselves.
It is in operation at all of the works of the
Carnegie Steel company. All of the
salaried meu paid by the Carnegie com
pany at Beaver Falls were paid off iu full
yesterday. The company will make no
effort to start these works soon.
Arrests of Anarchists.
The shooting of Manager Frick baa
demonstrated that there are 1,000 anarch
ists in Pittsburg. The police hold that
these meu or some of them are impli
cated in the attempted murder. One bus
picious circumstance they speak of is that
though those arrested were known to have
received many letters just prior to the
shooting not a line can be found at their
bouses, and they (the police) claim that
this shows that the letters were criminat
ing and that they have been destroyed.
Among Bauer's papers, however, was
found a list of Pittsburg millionaires aud
Iheir residences, including those of Frick,
rhippa and others.

Somebody Making ISombs.
Last evening the police authorities came
into possession of facts lending them to
j believe that bombs are now being made in
I this city. A merchant iuSmithfield street
reports to the police that within the past
three days he lias sold unusually large
quantities of small glass tubes and other
uialeris'N that are used in the construc
tion of the usual anarchist bomb.
