STATE JOTJItXAT SATURDAY EVENTXG, JULY 7 1S9I.
ABOUT "BLOWHOLES" "What tLe Armor Plate Investi gation Has Proved. Huch Talk About "Cherry Ked' and "Purple." A DISGRACEFUL THING The Fraud ? Havo Been Practiced All Alon Washin'Gtc v, July 7. Fpeci.il. no investigation into fraud on the navy Craws to an or d. and another 1 about tobo Kin. Of course there is much to be learned as to the d jii as of the Carnegie company, and there is conipuK.UveJy little yet known cf t!eallc3-ii fraud by the Fcun steel Cast ing and Machine company of Chester, Pa., but it lias nt hast been proved that there Is a. deal of creaked work and that the mea who ougbt to have prevented it are extremely unwilling to testify. The in vestigation byAuiDS CuiMuings' commit tee, progressed r.nthcr t-lowiy because oZ the demand upon tho members for their duties in tho Iioum, und tho testimony was s-j largely of a technical nature that oiJv tlicsj -who v.i tched minutely from day t day could form any conspiohensive idea of tho ilnal summary. Much was said about beating the p'aies to a c herry red or u daik red, a purple or otherwise; about cooling them in ti e furnace or the i.hes; about annealing an i I t 'tempering and blowluics and toumlc Uiu and ballistic te.-ts and a score of otner p. recesses known only to ex. petti, but i:i F iteof all the technicaiii,ies a vase ma s of very ugly facts has been twirced otis cf the unwilling witnesses by processes i: 'ar-aLin to a surgical operation. Wii.it Has lieen l'rovrd, A very brief history cf what has been proved will give tho reader a clear idea of what; the Committee expects to prove v hen it goes hig:t :r untl the points which Mr. I'rick, of whom tho public heard a pood deal just tv.o years aj.;o, will now bo called on t explain. It appears that the Carnegie company has furnished 11 sets of armor plate, about tOo tens ia a set, and the first information tho public tfot of any trouble was in the announcement last January that the president had remitted part of the line imnns'-d on the company for furnish ingrilafes slightly less perfect than it might bave f uriiisiied. Secretary Herbert went to the Pacific coast not long afterward on what wa. suj posed to bo a tour of pleasura ami syem-ral i ispeet ion, but it is now known that his prin ,-ipal object was to look into charges of fraud in the materials Used there. The bo;r: miinsr was in Septemler last, when Attorney .Tames II. (Smith of Pitts burg informed Mr. Herbert that four clients of hi employed by the Carnegie company could prove fraud if they were assured ii. formers' fees. They aid prove them and received one-fourth of the $140, 464.04, whi :.i the company had to pay. It was decided that of tho 11 set3 of armor there were fraud in but two, and the pres ident expressly stated in his letter that ho accepted tho statement of Mr. Prick that the faulty ccnttruetion began on tho 3d of November, la'-Jii, and was corrected on the 10th day of September, lb03." On tho contract price for all the armor made dur ing that period he deducted 10 per cent. Another attorney of Pittsburg, Mr. J. K. Wallace, then appeared upon tho sceno with statements that lie had clients who wauled to reveal something and jiet some thing therefor. The houso of representa tives had in the meaniimo got interested and called for tho facts, and in due time tie investigation began. It has been proved that plates selected, for tests were retreated secretly at night so as to make a better showing; that "blowholes" wero secretly plugged up; that false reports about heath. and tempering wero forged; that testing machines wero juggled with and a great variety of tricks ot that sort practiced by the three buperintendcnt-i, Schwab, Ciir.o and Corey, the men next in rank to i l.o 1 ad of tno Carnegie com pany. This defective armor is on the New York, the Cincinnati, tho Minneapolis, the Monterey and tho Terror and prob ably on four other vessels. lilt wholes In tlie Armor. The po ca led "blowholes" are made by the escape of gas hi the cooling process, and it was proved that dome of theiri were arco ctimiga to sec a pint cup in. One of the witnesses testified that ho put his card in one before it was plugged, and he doubled not that the card could now be found in tho plate. To complete this part of the story it ouiy remains to add that the 'blowholes' were found in the armor on the vessels in actual service. One of the witnes, W. P. Brown, told how be deceived the government inspector by smuggling short bolts among those which had passed muster; how the conspirators stele tho inspector's stamp and stamped the bud l ol as correct; how he "swelled" bolts with rreao and dirt, and finally how tho tricky superintendents were so de-iighted with his work that they gave him a liioauh's vacation and raised his salary. .Finally came Professor Alger and tes til.ed that the frauds began at tho very beginning of armor manufacture by tho Curni gie company and that in his opinion the $ -.ou,0 ) iirss assessed by the secretary eg dust tlie company was too little. With this broad foundation laid tha committee called Superintendents Cliae and Corey, and a queer hguro they made under the searching examination of Chairman Cum iiimgi. It was pia.n enough by their ap pearance when the first questions were aaked that iaey saw they were in for is and that it was no use to duujre. Mr. Cline sipuhiued all over the end of the committee ro-jm pretty nearly, but finaliy owned up to having mado bogus returns and burned tho real records. He had sup posed that there was no other written evi dence, but an .employ e named Siil had kept a private record lur his own use. Su periutoudc is Corey made a much better appearance. Ho started out by admitting that the plates were "jockeyed, " but seem ed to think that they wero good enough aLyhow. The Afterpiece. The committee's next action was to make arrangement for taking the sus pected places oif the vessels ind testing l-:em thoroughly, and now the interesting question is, Will congress rest content with the excuse that all this rascality was the fault of tho superintendents, or will an at tempt bo made to prove the cornany of ficials responsible? Mr. Corey somewhat defiantly challenged the committee to take surjecui f Uus c2 the Teasels and put them to a ballistic test, meaning shoot at them with tho most powerful projectiles, and said that he and the other superin tendents and no doubt tho company would be willing to submit the final judgment to such a test. Tho whole matter is just now in the most interesting Etae that is, fraud conclusively proved and tha respon sible man or men not id entitled. It's a, queer afterpiece to the Homestcati tragedy OX 1S92. A. K. U. DENOUNCES Tlie Employment of V. S. Mar h its By J. J. Kinney of the banta ITe. At the meeting of the Topeka mem bers of the A. R.

The order simply restrains tho men named from interfering with or obstruct ing the business of the roads engaged iu carrying the mails or iu the business of interstate commerce. Strikers will not be arrested for merely striking as a morning paper erroneously stated. This morning the order was sent to the deputy United States marshals iu charge of the various posses along the lines of the roads. They were instructed to serve them upon the men who are named in the order who reside at the point where the officers are stationed. The hearing ou the injunction is set for August 1st in chambers, iu this city. Signs Crowing iirilitr. General Manager J. J. Frey was ex amining the reports of trains moved along the line of the Santa Fe system during the last twenty-four hours when a State Journal, reporter called on him this morning. '"How is that for a record of moving trains?" asked Mr. Frey, as he held up two large sheets covered with inky marks indicating where trains had moved yesterday. Continuing, he said: "We are in better shape today than we have been at any ime siuce the strike. We moved freignt both east and west out of Argentine yes terday, and have raised the blockade at Emporia, Dodge City and other places in the state wnere the lie-up was the worst. ke expect to get most of the delayed traSic out of the way today and we are ready for regular business.'1 "Are you receiving all kinds of freight for shipment?" "I have not yet issued the orders to that eHect as we want to get all the de-" laved freight out of the way hist but we expect to do that today aud will then be ready for all classes of business." Here is an order 1 am just sending out and he handed the reporter the following: II. U. Mudjre. Topeka; C.

J. J f'KKr. Office Men Laid Off. Mr. Frey explained that the men who were laid off on accouat of lack of work are not to ba included in the order, but that they are still regarded as employes of the company. About titty clerks in the general office building were laid off last night on ac count of dull business. There was noth ing for them to do and if the strike con tinues much longer, there will be still greater reductions. The matter of laying off the clerks is left with the heads of departments, and most of those affected iu the first lay oil were in the stationery department and in the ollice of the auditor of freight re ceipts. A few of the wen with families who were laid oil are temporarily em ployed in the office of the geueral audi tor, but about fifty clerks are out of work, who were at their desks yesterday. In the general passenger department there is rejoicing because the Santa Fe is the only road now open to the Pacific coast, and although it was the last road tied up on California business it is the first to resume regular traffic. A private dispatch from Dodge City says that the reports of turbulence there have been greatly exaggerated. The mayor and citizens say there have beeu no tights there as reported. It is announced from the office of Train Master Tice of the Santa Fa that there are nine freight trains running on the eastern division of the road today. This forenoon none of them were headed for Topeka- out of Argentine. The road claims to have loosened things up in the Argentine yards completely and to be able to get" trains out of them in any direction. The trains that left Argentine this morning gp over the cutoff to Emporia, south to Chanute and north to Leaveu worth. The passenger trains are on time here today and it is again emphatically announced by the officials that the road is open for passenger traffic from Chicago to California. Even No. 4, the afternoon train that has been abandoned so many times lately, is running today aud will be here at 2:40. City Tick?; Offic- Closed. On account of the decrease in the pas senger business occasioned by the strike, the Rock Island has seen fit to close all of its city passenger offices along ita entire system for the present. The city oliice was closed here yesterday, throwing two men out of work for the present at least. They are Harry Garvey and his assistant Lamont Gregg. The general offices at Chicago are ail closed, and only three men are at work there. Of course the depot of lices all along the line are still running. Ail together there will not be forty men thrown out of work by the change. The trains are all running through here to day as usuaL The local situation on the Union Pa cific remains the same as yesterday. There have been no deputies sent out from Topeka to any point today and no more are being hired at present, tlie offi cials saying that they have all they need. A car load of forty-rive deputies from Kansas City went through on No. 5 at noon today and took dinner here. They are on their way to Raton to help protect company property. Claim Aeut C. M.

The New York World contains the following criticism of the action of the administration on the strike: "The World holds that all violent in terference with the railway companies in performing their duties as public carri ers should be preve.iled if possible, aud punished if it cannot be prevented. This should bo done, however, through the local authorities in the manner provided by law. That the federal government could be called upon to intervene in such a matter would not have beeu dreamed of ten years ago. "Through the encroachment of the fed eral courts it is now being dragged iu on all possible occasions, but the effort to make a federal question of quarrels be tween employers and employes should be reaisted with the whole force of en lightened public opinion. Such an in junction as that druwn by two corpora tion attorneys and granted yesterday by Judges Grosscup and Woods is a mon strous invasion of the people's rights." Tlie font Dispatch'! Opinion. St. Louis, Mo., July 8. The Post Dis patch says editorially: "If the railroad managers are wise they will go slow in iuvoking federal aid to crush the Debs boycott. "The only justification at present for the interference of federal authority is the clear violation of law not punishable by state courts. But if the principle of governmental regulation of interstate commerce is applied under the law to the protection by federal force of every foot of railroads and to the punishment in the federal courts of every person who obstructs railroad transportation by combination or violence, the conse queuces will be fraught with profound import. The next logical step of federal authority will be prevention of railroad management from giving cause for strikes aud the practical settlement of all dsvfferences between railroad corpora tions aud their employes aud the final control of railroads by the government. There is no stopping place ou this path way. 'If the force of federal authority can be invoked for one side it can be invoked for the other. If the railway service is to be treated as a public service to lie supervised by government the people would far rather have it completely under govermeutal control than to have the great engine of federal authority subject to the greed of corporations on the oue hand, or the caprice of irresponsi ble labor leaders on the other. "Under the stimulus of the apparent eagerness of Attorney General Olney and the federal judiciary to serve their purpose the railroad managers and attor neys are iu danger of committing as great a blunder for their corporations as Debs has committed for orgauized labor by his reckless strike orders."
