the Investigation at Chicago Feffer's '
Comment! on What Has Keen Learned. I
the lawyer from
22. George W. Argo, '
Sionx City, was chosen !
by the defense in the Critchlow ease to
make the opening statement, the prosecn-
lion having ressted. He said, referring to
the arrival of the Pinknrtons at the nrivate :
landing of the Homested mills Jury 0 last: !
"We say this was an invasion by a foreign !
armed force; an assault on the county; an 1
assault on the commonwealth; an assault '
., . , .
tL lir T r?" 1
the people of th eounty and state. This
armed body of men who invaded this state
were not employed as laborers; they were
men who could not have been made dep
uty sheriffs; they were emissaries for
what purpose? When they reached Home-
stead they made an attack on the people of
this county and this stale. So far as has ;
been shown thev were not there to nrotert
property; no evidence to show what they !
were doing there.
Had a I:ight To Me a Mob.
"We say all persons on the banks of the
river when this armed body attempted to
land had a right there; that eaeh had a
right to defend himself 'and all others
present; that a'.l had a right to use deadly '
weapons when attacked by such weapons.
as these people on shore were attacked; !
they had a right to defend themselves and
each other; that Critchlow had nothing to
do with the death of Connors." The ora- '
tor then declared the Critchlow defonse to
he an alibi; that he was riot there at all; '
that it was a Critchlow, but not this !
Critchlow; this one leing at Braddock half
the day and at home the other half; that
he had a gun when seen Joly 0, but it 1
wasn't loaded, and, indeed, he even did not
have any ammunition. After Argo was
through the court took recess.
Swear tbe Flnkertona Fired First.
Upon reassembling the first witness
called for the defense was Captain O. C.
Coon, of Homestead. He testiaed: "I left
home about 4 o'clock. When the prank
was thrown out my attention was called to

was tantalizing the man; the latter raised
his gun to shoot thai the boy, I said to him;
"For God's sake don't shoot that boy for he
is only a boy.' I asked bim if he was a
deputy sheriff, he said no; I asked him if
he was a guardsman, he said no, 1 then
said, 'You are a Iinkerton.' He replied
that he was, and holding up his gun said
his party was goin to enter the mill in
fifteen minutes. The hoy on the shore
oontinued to call the man on tha barge
and the latter raided his gun and aimed at 1
the boy, lmt some one pushed his nun

"When he raised it ngain he had it drawn '

there was a shot from the barge, and I :
heard afterward thr.t the boy ou the pl.mk

Comments hy Senator Peffer.
OniCAoo, Nov. K. The principal wit
ness before the sorbite Homestead commit
tee yesterday, w.-a Chief of Tolice Mc
Claughrey, and the pith of his teetimonev
was that, politics in the police department
should he utterly annihilated and that all
tur'otlanre sh.mld 1v qucllod by officers of
the law inster.d of Pinkerton guards. Ex-
I Sheriff Hitchcock said the reason for the
existence of Pinkerton guards was the diffi
culty of raismg a posse comitatus and
that some penalty should attach to a re
fusal to nerve in a posse. The committee
has gone to Pit tsburg.
As to Those Treason Proscruiions.
Referring to the effect of the investiga
tion, especially on the proserntions for
treason, at Pittsburg, na'or Peffer said:
'I thiqk the committee will make some
recommendation to bring altout a termina
tion of the struggle, lo continue these
prosecutions will only euilritler the feeling
all round, and Senator Galiingvr and my
self are so thoroughly in accord on the
subject that I think we will r port some
what on the lines I have indicated. For
the rest, the first result of our labors will
be to cull the general attention of tbe peo
ple to the whole stibji ct of the relat ions
between capital and labor.
The tilea of Force Mont
He complimented the woi kingmen who
had appeared before the committee for
their evident respect for law, and said that
employer and employe, must get into closer
relations wit (i caeh olher. "We must do
way with this suspicion which now un-
ts between them, and that
. extinction of the prof-s-

ilirninai-ed Irotu our ptditiral system as
much as possible. It is the dangerous Ue
ment, a:.d t ' e -.ouer we get rid if it the
