tarted lanl evening for New York, on bis
Way to Europe, leaving behind him a

of Chicago. Abso

has been going on
for a year past to

will be known as

to Chicago all that the Drexel insti
tute ia to Philadelphia and the Pratt in
stitute to Brooklyn. In addition to it
Mr. Armour gives $1,400,000 for its
support. All that money and Ibrains
and labor can do will be done towards
Baking it the greatest institute for manual
training, science, and art in this country.
For the "Claaxe and Mum."
It will be a school good enough for the
richest and it will reach out for the poor
est. Mr. Armour's wealth came to him in
Chicago. He desires now to do something
for the young men of that city. Upon his
return from Europe he will, to a large ex
tent, go into a sort of partnership with the
young men and young women who have or
desire to have a future. He conceived this
idea years ago and the plans have been
carefully gone over with George W. Child.
John C. Black and Mr. atnuour's sons,
Ogden and Phillip. He diires above all
things that his millions may aid in making
life beautiful. Inspiring and useful to the

The building and funds for its support

While the general public has never been
allowed to know much of Mr. Armour's
doings, those in a position to known state
that the mutmificeirt i gift U but a slight
intimation of the conMaut .stream of phi

Armour has been sending out for years.

To crown the above and supplement its

Hired by the determinative action

of the board of trustees of the Americaa

negotiations and confer ee which have
been going on since last 'July! The New

JUDGES AT THE EXPOSITION.
Aa Innovation in Awarding World's Fair
Chicago, Dec la. Individual judges, not
juriea, will award the medals and diplomas
a the World's fair. This is a decided In
novation, as board of judges nave always
been employed at great expositions. It is
too cheaper, as 050 judges, instead of 8,500
to 4,000, will do the work. The new plan
was proposed by John Boyd Thatcher, of
New York, and adopted at yesterday's
meeting of the committee of awards. The
judges will begin work June land finish
aa soon as possible. Another important
innovation is that these judges shall say iu
their award of medals and diplomas, why
they give those coveted prises to certain ex
hibitors. The specific points of excellence
must be stated in each case. American
judges receive !00 for their services aud
foreign judges $1,000. The difference, $400,

HI Kxperlenee Treating Sick Non-Union
PlTTSBrriG, Dec 13. The alleged con
spiracy to poison the non-union workmen
at the Homestead mills is the principal
topic of discussion here and at Homestead.
The strikers discredit the story und cluini
they are being persecuted, while counsel
for the Carnegie assert that they will be
able to substantiate the charges. Secretary
Killgallon, of the Amalgamated associa
tion, was seen yesterday and said:
"The idea that the Amalgamated as
sociation, would take part in such
a fiendish plot is preposterous. 1
do not know this man Beatty and never
heard of him In-fore. I assure you the
Amalgamated .'isisociatiou lias had nothing
whatever to do with this case in any shupe
or form." E. Y. Breck, ofie of the attorneys
for the Cai negies, was averse to talking on
the subject yesterday, but finally said t'.int
the company's case would be made stronger
by waiting, as at was gathering more evi
dence every ilnjf.
Tio Abmiril tor tiHruinn.
Treasurer (laches, of the Homestead ad
visory Ixiard said yesterday: "This, the
latest sensation sprung by the Carnegie
company, is almost too absurd to warrant
a discussion. 1 will say that the charge
that any member of the advisory lioard was
a party to any plot to poison iion-uniou
men is as false a- it is ridiculous. If poison
was administered to the non-union men
and I do not believe there was the guilty
parties were in no wy connected with the
lockeii-out men. Some individual may have
done it. but you can rest assured he did not
act in accordance with instructions from
the advisory committee. The whole story
is to my nihui. a fake, but for w hat pur
pose it was sprung I cannot imagine."
Not relieved at Houielemi.
The story is given no credence by the
majority of the people at Homestead,
whether they have leen identified with tne
strikers or not. Some of the striken who
hare failed to secure employment say that
the story is frompted by the Carnegie firm
for the purpose of profit, through any in
fluence it illicit have ou the murder and
riot case, yet to be tried in court. The
county coroner claims that no report of the
six deaths from this alleged cause have
been made to him. The opinion prevails
that if Frick and his associates were aware
of this poisoning, or even had reason to sus
pect it. the coroner would necessarily have
been not i lied.
O'lKomcl Want an Inquiry.
Hugh O'Donnell, the ex-leader of the
Homestead s:rikers, was interviewed in
jail yesterday on the subject of the poison
ing. O'Donnell denounced the reports as
false, and requested that his frieuds at
once take steps for a searching investiga
tion of the charges. Such an investigation
is also demanded by almost everybody at
Homestead. It is admitted that the man
Beatty may have plotted to do such in
famous work, but the idea that the leaders
of the striker-or any of the latter them
selves are involved is scouted. President
Garland, of the Amalgamated association,
said it was ua fake; a gigantic f.ike."

Beatty, who was arrested at Ixmisville,
has applied lor a writ of habeas corpus.
Attorney Brevk and some officers went to
Iiouisville yesterday w ith requisition pa

dence well in hand, and when the time
came for ot her move?, they would be made.
TALK OF A HOMESTEAD DOCTOR.
He Says the Xon-lTnion lf fi Wrrr Strnp
While the large majority of the residents
of Homestead look upon the poisoning
story as without foundation or fact, nearly
every physician in the borough is inclined
to look upon the matter as a very serious
one and worthy of a thorough investiga
tion. One of the must prominent physi
cians there said to a reporter last night
that he had some experience in treating
cases of diarrhoea contracted in the mill,
and found the cases very obstinate, He had
never before or since treated bowel com
plaint of a similar nature. The idea that
there might be something wrong with the
food or coffee served to the men in the mill
had often occurred to him.
Got Better by Eating Ovtolde rood.
He had invariably advised his patients to
cease partaking of food and drink obtained
in the mill. All of his patients who ob
served the instructions, he said, speedily
recovered. This physician, who declined
to permit his name to be published, also
aid: "I do not hesitate to state that, in my
opinion, all the facta go to show that the
detectives working in thin ease hare not
labored in vain." The doctor said that
prominent c-itixens of Homestead were
aware that an investigation of this charac
ter waa in progress; that they know the
names of three prominent Homesteaders
who are claimed by the detectives to be
implicated in the polsouing.
No Analyses Made Tot.
So far an can be learned no Pitta burg
chemist has been called upon to analyse
the stomachs ot any of the men alleged to
have been poisoned. Captain K. Y. Breck
said: "I cannot at this time tell you what
other arrests will be made. We know just
who we want and the persons are under
constant surveillance, so have no fear of
any one escaping. When we are ready the
arrests will be made and the evidence se
cured as to the truth or falsity of the state
ments will not be made public until the
case cornea up for trial."
