Homkstkai), Pa., July 20. Four regi

terday morning Major General Snowdon
discontinued division headquarters and
turned over li is command to Brigadier
General Wiley. Provost Marshal Green
also relinquished his authority and
lieutenant Colonel Mechlins, of the
Fifteenth regiment, assumed charge of
the maintenance of law and order. Iatcr
in. the day General Snowden left for
Philadelphia. A brigade has (succeed tho
division, with General Wiley in command.
The brigade consist of three full regi
ments, the Sheridan Troop of cavalry and

Kays He Will Sue I'otter.
Uurgess I Luckie find Klnier E. Bait,
Tor whom warrants charging aggravated
riot were issued, surrendered in Pittsburg
yesterday ami were admitted to bail in
$.',000 each. Bait says hi- will sue Super
intendent Potter for malicious persecu
tion, saying that he w as discharged for his
activity m the Homestead strike of ISO,
and that in every mill in which he has
tried to secure work he was refused when
he mentioned his name, and he claims
that Totter had him blacklisted among
the manufacturers. William Blakly, an
other alleged rioter, was arrested at Home
stead and taken to Pittsburg last even
ing. A number of the poorer clashes of
workingmen. on whom notices of eviction
were served by the company, moved into
houses provided by the advisory commit
Stoned the Men at Work.
Some of t he strikers went, through the
Carnegie works on a Pittsburg, McKees
port and Youghiogheny train and created
great excitement by throwing lumps of
coal at some ot the non-union men in the
works. As a result, of this incident orders
have been issued by the military authori
ties requiring all freight trains on this
road to stop and be searched for would-lte-
rioters at the entrance to the works.
Hugh O'Ponnell has again left for the
east in the same quiet mannerjwhich char
acterized his former trip.
Fired a Trio of Anarchists.
An attempt to convert the non-union
workmen in the Homestead mills to an
archistic beliefs and to incite them to
leave the works has resulted in a failure.
A few days ago some anarchistic litera
ture was found among the workmen and
an investigation resulted in the discovery
that three disciples of anarchy were inside
the big fence in the guise of mill workers.
These men had been talking among the
mill hands, but had apparently made i o
converts. Their literature was confiscated
and they were dismissed from the employ
of t he company.
SITUATION INSIDE THE MILLS.
A Reporter Goes Through Them
Tells What He Saw.
A United Press reporter was taken
through the Homestead mills yesterday
by Superintendent Potter. He saw be
tween 250 and S00 men at work in the vari
ous departments. Potter said that 700
men were inside the works. They worked,
he said, in two turns, and only the day
force was on duty at the time. The work
men appeared to be a very intelligent
class, and few foreigners in the works, but
Potter said that some more Hungarians
would lie brought in to do a class of work
that American workmen refused to do. A
number of the men are intelligent Ger
man mechanics, but a majority of the
workmen are Americans.
Stories of Ieserters Ienled.
A visit to the kitchen, bath house,
laundry and dormitories showed that the
statements by some of the non-union men
who left the mills were exaggerated, if not
entirely without foundation. The dormi
tories, or bunk bouses as they are called,
are clean and neat; the kitchen was a
model of itB kind, and the other arrange
ments for the comfort of the workmen
were complete with every convenience.
The storehouses were filled with superior
articles of diet. Potter said the men were
boarded and lodged free, and that a
laundry has been established and is also
at their disposal gratis.
The Mills Are Making Steel.
There can be no doubt that steel is being
made in the mills. Xo attempt has been
made to manufacture the full output of
the plant. The work is principally on
armor plat, while some bridge iron and
bolt iron is bring turned out. The re
porter saw sis pieces of armor plate, each
of ten tons, made Wednesday in the armor
plate rolling mill. Three furnaces are
going in open hearth mill Xo. 2 and one
set of rolls is being operated in the armor
plate rolling mill. The press shop end
the armor plate machine shop are also in
operation. Potter said ten or fifteen non
union men had leen discharged for in
competency, and some of these had, he
thought, started the stories of dissatisfac
tion among the workers.
HELD HIM FOR MURDER.
On of the Homestead Strikers who Was
Soon to Fire en the Marges.
FlTTSBrr.Q, July 29. Yesterday Judge
Magee, in criminal court, had before him
a dozen attorneys and about fifty specta
tors in the hearing for the release on bail
of Sylvester Critchlow and James Close,
the Homestead strikers charged by the
Carnegie Steel company with murder.
Three Pinkertou detectives sat in the
audience. Before court opened attorneys
for the defense and prosecution engaged
in a general discussion. William J. Bren
nan, representing the prisoners, was angry
at the Carnegie officials. "Why," he ex
claimed, "Secretary Lovejoy is a bigger
anarchist than Berkmanu, who shot Frick.
He is a bigger coward because he commits
legal rather than physical murder. Lovejoy
shows he is a coward by turning his pro
secutions into persecutions."
Will Itring Frirk Into Court.
Captain Breck, for the Carnegie com
pany, asked why Brc-nnan did not arrest
the l'inkeiton detectives then in court
and charge them with murder. "We are
after bigger game than Pinkertons," re
torted Breunan. "Frick being shot, is the
only thing that saved hint from arrest for
murder, and we are bound to bring him
before the court yet." Then the proceed"
ings in court began, and the prosecution
called its witnesses, being apparently de
termined to make good the charge of
murder in Critchlow's case.
Direct. Testimony Against Him.
J. X. Dixon, a plate worker in the
Homestead mill, and H. H. Hervey, as
sistant, paymaster, testified to having seen
Critchlow on the morning of the battle
with a gun over his shoulder going toward
the Pinkerton barges. Samuel Stewart, a
clerk in the Homestead oflice, who fur
nished his company the names cf all strikers
who carried guns on that day, said he saw
Critchlow with a gun in the morning, and
at 4 o'clock p. m. he saw him behind i.ho
strikers' barricade, lying on his face, peep
ing through a port hole. Stewart saw him
aim, press the trigger and tire, and saw
the smoke from his gun.
The Prisoner Refused Kail.
Critchlow's lawyers tried to break this
testimony, but Judge Magee intt rnoscd,
saying: Here we have the direct testi
mony of a man aiming ami firing a gun,
and of the death of a man. This case is
different from O'Donneli'a, The letter's
association wit h the rioters was solely for
the purpose of preserving peace." Judge
Magee added: '"I will refuse, to accept
bail and hold the prisoner fur murder in
the first, degree." ' An awful pallor over
spread Critchlow's face at these words.
He trembled violently. He had firmly cx
pic'ed that he would be released as was
O'Doniicil and the .'thcrs.
Kiot .in a Xm-l'iiioii Train.
A ri)t occurred yesterday morning oa a
Baltimore and Ohio train, on which a
party of fifty-six non-union men were
being .transported from Cincinnati to
Pittsburg to work in the Carnegie stiel
works iit Homestead. In the melee one
man was stabu ! in the forehead with a
bayonet in the hands of an armed guard.
Another h:.d a thumb chewed otf and
nearly a score of others were badly bruised
in an attempt to regain their liberty.
Thirty-five cf them escaped. The story
of the others is that they were told they
were to work at Pittsburg and that when
they found that the work was at Home
stead they demanded their lilerty and
were oppose by armed guards.
Arrival of the Long ltrmia-h Anarchist.
Frederick Mullock, Berkmann's alleged
arch-conspirator, is behind the bars at the
Central police station. lie came in on
the limited from Philadelphia last night,
in custody of Superintendent O'Mara,
Mulleck is the baker arrested at Long
Branch, and is accused of complicity with
Alexander Berkmann in the attempt to
assassinate Chairman Frick. He denies
any complicity in the crime. The two
men who were arrested Wednesday for
wanting to see Berkmann were released
yesterday, there being no evidence against
