Washington, Aug. 8. Oates' report on
the Homestead trouble, which was sup
pressed by the full committee oa the
ground that it did not cover all the
grounds ot the investigation, says that had.
Frick stated the bottom facts (the cost of
making a ton of steel billets) to the com
mittee they would have agreed that the
proposition to reduce wages was justifia
blc; but they took issue with Frick in his
conclusions that the tariff did not cause a
decline in prices. Oates finds further that
the conduct of the company towards its
employes was kind in many respects. It
loaned them money at low rates of interest
to build them homes, and never foreclosed
a mortgage. The men were pifid satisfac
tory wages, but the work much abbrevi
ates the natural period of life, and should
be well paid for. He thinks that the com

Frick Wasn't Sufficiently Snare,
But iu the negotiations the officers did
not exercise patience.indulgence and solic
itude, and Frick. according to Oates' opin
ion, ws too stern, brusque and somewhat
autocratic Oates is persuaded that if
Frick had appealed to the reason of the
employes and shown them the state
of the company's affairs the reduction
might have been made and no trouble
would have followed. Sheriff McCleary,
he asserts, was very inefficient, but had
Frick aided him and joined in his appeal
to the governor instead of employing
Pinkertons the state would have fur
nished a sufficient force to have protected
As to the rinkertona.
The Pennsylvania law contains nothing
to prevent Frick from employing Pinker-
tons as watchmen at Homestead, but
Oates condemns their employment under
the circumstances. The company did not
appeal to the county or state authorities
in the first instance for protection. The
report says that the Pinkertons who sur
rendered were brutally and outrageously
treated, principally by women and boys,
and Oates is loath to believe that any of
these women are native Americans. He
says that the indignities to which they
were subjected were a disgrace to civiliza
tion. The Strikers and the Law.
Oates condems as unlawful the acts of
the workmen, in turning awav the sheriff
and in hanging in efiigy Frick and Potter.
He says it was the purpose of the Amalga
mated association to prevent the employ

Chicago, Aug. 8. Colonel John C. Bun
dy, editor of the Religio-PhilosophicaJ
Journal, died in this city Saturday, aged
51, his mind clear and unclouded to the
very end. He had been ill for seven weeks,
and there were great hopes of his recovery,
when suddeuly he grew worse and passed
away in a few hours. He was born at St.
Charles, Mo., Feb. ltt, 1S41, and his fathei
and mother are yet alive at their home at
Englewood. Colonel Buiuiay served

Characteristics of the Man.
Colonel Buudy was a strong character
independent, assertive, positive in his
convictions, and possessed of the courage
to maintain them under all circumstances
regardless of pecuniary gain or worldly
glory. In religion he was a spiritualist.but
he was an untiring opponent of every kind
of deception practiced by professional
mediums. He believed firmly in con
tinued life nfter death, and also in the
possibility of communion between the
spirit world and this under favorable cir
cumstances. He made no claim that we
could predicate positive knowledge of the
conditions of the future life, and believed
that all communion with spirits, not
fraudulent, were more or less colored by
the personality of the medium and by the

J"o Help from Congress.
In conclusion Oates finds that congress
has no power over the questions involved.
The enactment of a satisfactory arbitra
tion law is well nigh impossible. As to
whether congress has the power to regu

he has no conclusion to express until the
completion of the investigation next ses
