point. Now that the nuony is over the
the men are not backward about expressing
their opinions of the men whohae posed as
leaders, confidently promising a victory
when they knew for a cerliiintyth.it the
battl-.s was hopelessly lost. It is ex pec: e.l
that the Amalgamated men will join iu the
rush for positions tod-iy. According to
Supermt. ndi lit Vv'ood, of ti e Homestead
wort.s, not more than ts)3 or 0.:0 of the total
number of old employes will be able to
secure, esuployment. 1'efore the break o(
last Thursday there, were left in Home
stead about -2:0 of the ariginal 3.S00 men
who were locked out on Jttuo 25. Of these
men, .t.'-OO were mechanics aud lalwrers
and 000 Amalgamated association men.
Up to date 1,000 men have applied for work
and it is estimated that not more than 350
men have been supplied with employment,
l.rginning of the 1 lac (.down.
The question of declaring the mill open
began to agitate the minds of cert Jiin Amal
gamated mentis soon ns it became appar
ent that Hie mechanics intended breaking
away in a body. Not only the rank and
file, but manv of the leaders recognized
that without the numerical aid of the me
chanics aud laborers they could not hope
to carry the day. Money, or lack of it. also
became an important factor. '1 lie failure

That Terrible Closing Scene.
The arrest of the Pinkertons after twelve
hours' lighting during which pistols, rifles

used, was followed by the terrible gauntlet-running
and barbarous abuse of the
captive Picket-tons, oue of whom was driv

A number of laboring men on pavement
work got on the boat at Ashport and they
wire soon ia a beastly stale of intoxica
tion. It is thought that four of these men
w ere burned to death, as the engineer was
not able to arouse them. The stern of the
boat swung around, aud it was thought
for a few minutes that the vessel would
break away and drift against other vessels
in the harbor, but a current of w ind drove
her shoreward. The boat cost 470,000 when
built five yeais ago, and she is a total loss.
She had a cargo worth $25,000. The lat
was insured for ?27,0O0 aud 337 bales of
