OOO Itail Frick Rapidly Recovering.
Washington', July 30. Powtlerly np
penred ytsterrJny before the house
comitte investigating the Home
stead affair and rend a statement
principally devoted to the Pinker
tons. He said he had investigated
the reputations of the men engaged by
PiuKerton ai.d hn;l found at least eight
men who were charged with crime, four
being credited with burglary. Then they
Jiad ncted as spies in Knights of Labor
souncils. The statement made by the
Pit-kertons that but three men had been
killed by their employes was incorrect,
lie thought that seven were killed by
them in the Kast St. Louis strike. The
Knights of Labor, he said, never prevent
ed non-union men from accepting work,
and lie thought employers could replace
union men by non-union men if Pinker
tons were not employed.
liucsn't .Justify the Vse of Force.
Replying to I"oatner he said that; or
ganized labor did not justify the use of
force to k eep non-union men away. He
thought that many of the lalor troubles
could lie settled without the loss of life if
Pinkerton men were kept away. He
thought that each state and locality
should care for his own affairs. He pre
ferred in cases like that of Homestead to
have men selected from the locality, as
such persons were more careful and con
siderate than those gathered from dis
tances. The Pinkertons, he said, was the
bone of content ion. The labor people did
not want to exterminate them if the law
would do it.
Tha Committee Is M illing.
Dates and liroderiek desired to know
what measures Powderly thought would
be satisfactory on the subject of the Pink
ertons, and Oates implied that the com
mi t tee was against them, and against
their hire and transportation, liroderick
asked if a law were passed prohibiting
their transportation would it be satisfac
tory, and Powderly thought it would. The
labor people were in favor of compulsory
-arbitration. The government protected
the Carnegie company and labor t lso
Some Rights of Owners.
Witness would not justify strikers in
preventing non-union men from entering
the works in any way but through per
suasion. He also admitted the right of
the owners to protect their plant, hut was
against the bringing of irresponsible men
to protect the vorks. Men who were
picked up any where and who sneaked off
after the trouble and were not held respon
sible. The company had the right to dis
charge men with whom it could not agree,
but thes3 rights were frequently altered
by contracts. He was in favor of govern
ment ownership of the railways. The
committee adjourned subject to the call of
HOMESTEAD NOT SO QUIET.
Strikers Brgin Talking of Routine the
Homestead, Pa., July 30. Last night
the old scenes that were familiar prior to
the advent of the National guard were be
ing re-enacted in Homestead. Knots of
strikers were to be encountered every few
yards on the principal streets discussing
the best and safest means of routing the
non-union men now in the mill. While
much interest is taken in the discussions
the leaders continue to caution the more
radical men against the employment of
force. Were is not for the presence of the
provisional brigade, however, the fence
around the Carnegie steel plant would
not long separate the union and non-uuiou
Threats of Violence Frequent.
At the company's Homestead office
last evening it was announced that forty
two Amalgamated men are at work;
that all told, ninety men, who went out
on the 28th of June, have applied for and
received their old positions. Mauy of these
men are working in daily fear of their
lives. Nearly every man has received
warning of dire punishment if he does not
quit work. They receive letters contain
ing bloodthirsty threats, and six of the
best paid men have quit for fear of vio
lence which had been threatened them.
Several men have been severely beaten
and with others have been personally
warned to quit or take the consequences.
Notice to KuD-l'nlou Men.
The "Society for Iuvention of Craelty to
Strangers" is again transacting business.
Yesterday morning the following notice
was found inside the works: "All non
union men desiring to leave Carnegie's
works without delay will be provided for
by the union men of Homestead, but all
who stay at work will seek his God. All
Are being spotted. Beware!" This is the
result of the liberal withdrawal of troops
during the past lew days.
Turned Some Workmen Hack.
The advisory committee received news
that thirty-five men were coining to Home-
stead from Cincinnati. A committee was
aeiit to meet them, and the committee has
. reported that every one of them had agreed

who were obtaining men fur a new rail
way were mobbed Thursday night because
it was supposed that they were trying to

Not Too l'oor to Stand a Strike.
At the nitf linK of the Hilvisory commit
tee yesterday there was present a commit
tee from tlie I rick Coke works lu the Con-
neiisville region. The visitors told the
couimi::ee that if the Carnegie company
is successful ia starting "P 't Homestead
plant with i'.ev men the I'rick coke work-
era would go out. iney sum tne men
were fully organized, were not so poor as
is generally supposed, and could stand
several mouths' strike.
ASSASSIN BERKMANN ARRAIGNED.
lie Acknowledges Ills Crime and Goes to
Jail r'rick Recovering.
PlTTs-Bl'lM;, July 80. Berkmann was ar
raigned yesterday. Few wituessen were
examined. They were not needed. Berk
mann defiantly admitted that he wanted
to kill Frick. He said he did not want to
kill any one else, lie went to the office
to kill the manager; that was his sole
business. His bail was fixed at $24,
000 on several charges, and as he could not
get the bail he was sent back to jail. Xo
one else was implicated in the crime.
An Anarchist Ioes Some Talking.
Paul Eckhardt, an anarchist leader, is
looking after the interests of the others
arrested. He has applied for their release
Mi bail and says that bail can lie obtained.
He says the law cannot do anything with
liauer or Knold. They are anarchists, it
Is true, but that, he said, is not a crime.
Frick and the 1'inkertons.
When asked what the Allegheny group
thought of Frick he said: "Well, they
think he is an oppressar of labor. Ho did
more, however, to help ovir cause along at
Homestead than all the circulars or
tracts we could have published."
fcVhat do you think cf the Pinkerton
"I think they were not treated badly
enough. They should have all been killed.
The men should have never let them leave
the town. You see what is happening
now; the strikers are all being arrested."
Moro Threatening Letters.
He said he believed llerr Most had been
at Homestead, but grew v.rathy when it
was suggested that Most was an anarch
j ist for revenue, only. The time would
j come he believed when Most would be
! honored by every workingnian. Threaten
. ing letters continue to reach several of the
Ift-ading officials of the Carnegie Stel
company. The letters are said to be
anonymous and mostly written in red ink,
while a few are adorned with suggestive
skulls and crossbones.
Frick Rapidly (letting Well.
Last evening's bulletin issued by the
attending surgeon indicates but little
change in II. C. Frick's condition, save in
the direction of continued improvement.
Frick's recovery from his very dangerous
injuries has been so very rapid and sat
isfactory that his attendant s are now com
pelled to admit that the plucky iron mas
ter will be or: his feet again in two or
three weeks at the latest.
Thry May Try Arbitration.
The differences between the mannfacNir
ers and the Amalgamated associp-i icn
wage committee will now doubtless be
settled by arbitration. D. B. Oliver, rep
resenting the manufacturers has made a
proposition to arbitrate the differences
under the, as yet, untried Wallace act, of
l!-!ii. The Amalgamated committee, after
s. private con sultation, announced that the
matter would be considered, and it looks
ns though the consideration would be
For Arbitration with a String.
Rev. Amanda leyo, of Hcranton, has
been here trying to get both sides to agree
to arbitration. The Carnegie people told
her flatly that there was nothing to arbi
trate. Weihe made a statement that the
men would arbitrate everthing except the
change of date of expiration of the scale.
It is claimed that there are now VM men
at work in the mills.

Watson Charges the Members with
Drunkenness Investigation Ordered.
Washington, July 30. The senate had
a field day on the tariff, transacting no
other business. Aldrich's speech on the
Republican side was replied to by Car
lisle. Senators Proctor, Sherman and Al
lison prolonged the debate untit 5 o'clock,
when an adjournment was had.
In the house Watson was arraigned by
Wheeler for writing a book in which he
charged members with drunkenness.
Watson reiterated the charges and a com
mittee was appointed to investigate their
truth. A couple of members then blocked
business and would not permit a
vote on theWorld's fair bill. A nigiit session
was held, at which nothing was done.
Put I.lfe Into Monotony.
The monotonous proceedings of the
house were enlivened for two hours by a
personal explanation of Wheeler of Ala
bama, who charged that Watson of
Georgia had misstated facts regarding him
(Wheeler), and had also published in a re
cent third party campaign book which he
(Watson) had issued matters reflecting
upon the dignity of the house and the con
duct of its members. The citation from
the work was as foilows: "Drunken mem

to the republic; drunken speakers had de
bated grave issues on the floor and in the
midst of maudlin ramblings have been
heard to ask: 'Mr. .Speaker, where was
Watson Will Retract Nothing.
Watson arose to reply, but was con'
stantly called to order by several members
who submitted that he was out of order
and was not confining himself to the ob
jectionable language excepted to. In the
course of his remarks he said he stood by
every word he had written in the book
and was ready to answer any charge of
falsehood that might be made against
him. Traeey of New York then called
him to order and he took his seat, by di
rection of the speaker. Subsequently, the
house, by a vote, allowed him to proceed
and be made a statement reiterating the
charges, which he said were true, and de
fied "any action which the house might

justice which dwelt in the hearts of the
American people" for his viu lication, if,
indeed, any were needed. A resolution

truth or falsity i f the statements made.
