Washington-, Aug. 4. After many
boors spent in a seemingly fruitless
exiilravor to come to some agreement on
the World's fair appropriation matter, the
committee, of ten Democrats appointed
Tuesday to arrange compromise looking
to the brea&tng of the deadlock decided
yesterday afternoon to report to a cancns
of Democratic members the only arrange
ment they could effect with any degree of
mnanimiiy. This compromise was not
agreed to by any direct rote. It was prac
tically a last resort, and consent was
Siren to (t by some of the members of the
committee almost in desperation.
Con Id a t Recommend It.
The committee agreed to suggest (not
recommend; this means of breaking the
deadlock to a caucus of Democratic mem-
minister to the fair people is thns far
frilded. There were assurances last night
that ten or perhaps fifteen men who roted
against the &.U01MM) nibcriDtion of gor
ernmeut f uoti to the stuck of the Illinois
corporation will vote for the proponed
t2,500,( gift. If thee figures be correct
the new measure will go through with a
large majority. There is no fear of adverse
action in the senate.
VETOED A LAND SUIT BILL.'
bers, but each member of the committee
reserved his right to rote as he pleased in
. the rcatter. The result was by no means
acceptable to ail the members of the com
mittee. The & L' r m n t t L t Vi annm.
prist ion out of the sundry civil bill, cuts!
tt in half and makes a separate measure
of it. Kilgore of Texas and others threat
en to fife lit any um given to the fair, and
say they will beat it if it takea until
March , 193.
" The Cancns Meets A fain.
The Democratic caucus met pursuant
to the above arrangt-ment and was well
attended. Three members of the Texas
delegHtion Kilgore, B.iiley and Anthony,
who hare bitterly opposed the World's
fair appropriation clause iu the sundry
civil bill withdrew from the hall of the
hu,se early in the caucus, refusing to
place themselvrs in a poitiou where ther
night be bonud by its action.. Holman
presided and Heilly of Pennsylvania was
secretary. When Ho:mu had called the
caucus to order there were some prelimi
nary inquiries by a few members to ascer
tain whether the action of the caucus
would be binding.
' "o Itiudioe on the Individual.
They were apparently satisfied with
Reilly's explanation that it was not in
tended that action fcbouM be binding on
individual members, but that it was hoped
a harmonious agreement would make the
caucus action satisfactory to all members
oa the Democratic side. This over Keilly,
as chairman of the committee on adjust
ment of the difficulty, prevented the report
of the committee and entered into an ex
planation of its detail.
Text of the Agreement.
The agreement in full is as follows:
This committee submits to the Democrat of
the bouse the following proiiooition. it being
mnuenttood that it doen not commit any Eueui
berof the committee or of tLe liotue for or
avaicst the World's fair appruj rial ion:
Itecon'.der the vote by wbiea the Loumc has
receded rum its dkafrreemens to the sena'e
amen'lmeets and send the sundry civil LiU
back into conference.
That pending the conference on the sundry
civil bill the Llurborow bill, appropriating
S6.00.Uiai, be taken up. reduced to o.i in.
appropriating this sum to aid the success
of the fair, and that a final rote upon it with
out interruption be taken not later than
Saturday, Ante- , at 2 p. m.
That meantime last year's sundry i Ivil bill
appropriation be extended, and the power of
the house be exerted to enforce the attendance
of absent members.
That whether the Uurborow bill as amended
be carried or defeated the vote thereupon is to
be regarded as a settlement of the question,
and the sundry civil bill shall b: considered
with the senate amendments.
ADOPTED IT UNANIMOUSLY.
Keilly Tells 'Km It's a Oround Hog Case
Reilly told the caucus that the commit
tee bad labored lougand earnestly to reach
a satisfactory agreement, and that it could
reach no better understanding than that
shown by the re port. He explained the neces
sity lor its adoption, holding that the dead
lock wonld be continued indefinitely if it
were not agreed to. He outlined the mode of
procedure planned, and begged the caucus
to' sanction the agreement in the interest
of peace. When Keilly concluded his ex
planation there were loud cries of "Vote,
rote." There was no attempt to oppose
the report, and when Chairman Holmau,
yielding to the cries for the question, put
the motion that the report be adopted
there was a loud chorus of "aye," while
not a member roted in the negatire.
Suppose Kilgore Says JS'oT
If the programme endorsed is carried out
the rote on the scaled-down Durborow bill
will be taken Saturday. An advocate of
this plan of settlement said that some at
tempt at filibustering may be made to pre
vent the bill coming to a direct rote, but
notwithstanding the assertion of Kilgore
and some others that they will fight the
rift of any sum if they keep congress in
session continuously until March 4 next,
the day the Fifty-second congress expires,
it is almost certain that the action of the
caucus will be carried out to the letter. .- A
strong feature in the report of the com
mittee is the section providing that whether
the Pfrborow bill be carried or defeated
tbi5roon It shall be regat ded as a settle
xndqi of the -whole question.
Tho 8am Xs n Olft.
It sfrpftld be understood that the 12,500,
000 proposed to be appropriated is a gift; the
United States will bare -no claim on the

Tho President Intimates That Congress
Wasn't Very Wide Awake.
Washington, Aug 4. The president in
his message retoing the bill to provide for
the bringing of suits against the United
States talks very plainly, and tells that
body that it could not have realized what
it was doing when it passed the bilL He
objects to the bill because there is no
necessity for it. The land office work is so
efficient and its policy. so friendly to tha
settlers that all the cases which had ac
camulated bare been swept away, and
the office is now engaged on current busi
ness. The proposition therefor to trans
fer these eases to courts some of whose
dockets are overcrowded now does not
look to the executive like a measure to
expedite settlement of these land cases.
Business of the Land Ottee.
The president says that the adjudication
af land cases is a function of the land of
fice and the proceedings are informal and
inexpensive. But the bill proposes to
throw the cases into courts where the ex
pense would necessarily be much greater.
The bill is called an "oversight" that would
burden the homesteader and pre-emptor
with the penalties and expenses incident
to ordinary court proceedings, and they
could be brought all the way to the capital
from far western points to defend their
claims. Generally the bill is too radical
and indefinite, he says.
BEGAN COLUMBIAN CELEBRATIONS.

yesterday, which is near I los, from which
bitter point Columbus started on his voy

Alaria was towed over a part of the course
taken by Columbus, and a large number
of vessels of all nations took part in the
exercises. The caravel Santa Maria is a

PiTTSBcnG, Aujj. 4 The strikers bare
struck their counter blow in the matter of
prosecutions for murder, and yesterday
made informations in the name of Hugh
Ross against Frick. Lovejoy, the two Pink
ertons. Potter, Leisbman, and Curry all
except the Pinkertons being officers of the
Carnegie company. Besides these there
were informations against several Pinker
ton guards and others. The charge is mur
der in connection with the fiht on July 6.
Frick 'a infant son, only a few weeks old,
died yesterday, and he will not be arrested
for awhile, but warrauts were gotten out
for several of the men at Homestead,
among them Superintendert Potter and
two men named Nevin McConnell, and
James Dovey. Constables were sent to
Homestead to serve the warrants.
Curious Feature of tho Case.
The men who are mentioned in the in
formation as having been killed are all
strikers and among them is Silas Wayne.
Now Wayne was killed by a cannon ball,
the cannon being fired by the strikers
themselves, and Kosn is under charge of
his murder. When Rosa went to Alder
man King to file his information that of
ficial demurred. He did not like the job,
but as a magistrate he could not refuse to
issue the warrants if the men were willing
to swear to the informations. He tried to
dissuade them, but Rosa told him that he
bad made up his mind and he could not
Strikers Jeer the Prisoners.
When it became known in llomest end
yesterday that deputies had entered the
Carnegie steel works with warrants for
the arrest of Nevin McConnell and Dovey,
on the charge of murder, strikers to the
number of several hundred gathered in
the vicinity of the works, but were dis
persed. On the station platform was a
crowd of strikers who began jeering the
prisoners. The few militiamen and
deputies fouud themselves unable to
handle the excited throng and the situa
tion grew serious. Won', was sent to
General Wiley. Five minutes later a
company from the Fifteenth regiment ar
rived, fixed bayonets and charged upon
the crowd, and arrested Thomas Bowen,
who had brandished a knife.
Sent Bowon Along Also.
When the train pulled up, Dovey and
McConnell with several constables and
deputies stepped aboard. Major Crawford
requested two deputies to tae liowen to
Pittsburg and lock him up. This was not
relished br the crowd, which made a more
as if to attempt Bowen's rescue, but the
blue coats drove the crowd back t Major
Crawford detailed eight members of his
command to do duty on the train. At

body of strikers, but to this place also bad.
been dispatched a company of infantrf.
The scenes convinced the officers in com
mand of the provisional brigade that
despite the repeated protests of the people
of Homestead the presence of the troops
is still necessary. t
Baffled the Prosecntion.
It was evidently the intention of the
prosecution to bare several of the officials
sent to jail, but this was avoided by waiv
ing preliminary examination and going
before Judge Ewing where bail was given
in $10,000 for Frick, Lovejoy, Leisbman,
Curry and Fry. Judge Ewing said to the
prosecution pointedly: "I don't think that
any good lawyer would hold these men
guilty. I think the people on the bank
were clearly in the wrong from the start."
The Mill Men Itejoice.
There was great rejoicing among the
locked out workmen when they learned
that informations had been Xnade against
the officials of the Carnegie company.
This .-b.tisf action was intensified by the
know ledge that Hugh Koss had attached
his signature to the papers, which are
hoped to set the wheels of justice in mo
tion. Superintendent Potter treated the
matter lightly, and thought that a huge
joke had been perpetrated. He said:
"Well, they know where to find me when
they want me."
Bonding: Houses for the SfW Men.
The Carnegie Steel company yesterday
broke ground for a number of bouses
within Fort Frick. The buildings will be
of brick and wood and will accommodate
nearly 200 families. "It will be necessary
for us to take care of some of our men for
f nlly six months, even if the tremble is set
tled in that time," said an official of the
company, "and the only way we can do is
to start a little town within the enclosure.
Order of American Mechanics Involved.
It is now probable that as a resuls of the
wage conflict in Homestead a secret
society will be involved. Complaints
have been made to the Junior Order of
American Mechanics council that in the
mill are a large number of men wearing
badges of the order, and that in taking
the places of locked -Out members of the
order they are violating their oaths and
should be expelled. The officers of the
local council hare begun an investigation,
and if the reports prove true will appeal to
the state councillor.

Practical Meaning of the Verdict of the
Pittsburg, Aug. 4. The inquest iuto
the deaths resulting from the riot at Home
stead was concluded yesterday afternoon
before Coroner McDowell. The jury was
out about an hour before their verdict was
returned. There were no witnesses exam

the coroner, which impressed on the jury
the importance of the investigation. The
jury's verdict reads almost alike in the
case of each of the seven strikers killed.
