"What tLe Armor Plate Investi

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
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
.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
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

An Ugly Looking Bomb Found
at Linwood.

Powder and Pebbles.
Three Girls Killed by a Train
Near Lenexa.
Lawbesce, July 7. Rev. W. IL Ir
win, whose home is in Lawrence, and
who has been conducting a revival meet
ing in Linwood for several weeks past,
has just brought in a story that caused
great excitement at that place. lie
brought with him a bomb that had been
found very near the revival tabernacle
On the afternoon of the 5th of July,
1804, one of Mr. Lawson's children dis
covered a bomb located about 100 yards
east of the tabernacle belonging to Mr.
Irwin. This bomb, on examination, was
found to cousist of light sheet iron about
fuur iucUes iu diameter and about two
feet, four inches in leug h, and filled
with eight pounds of the best blaotiug
powder and amail pebbles and stones;
also two fuses entering the end of the
pipe just opposite each other, apparently
calculated lor the assurance ol the ex
plosion, lhe inference by some is that
this was calculated to be used to kill and
mangle those who were in attendance at
the meetings which were being held at
the tabernacle, but as there is uo imag
iuable reason why there should be auy
incendiary feeling agaiust the evan
gelistic effort there must oe some other
cause for its presence.

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:

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
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

New York, July 7. The New York
World contains the following criticism of
the action of the administration on the
"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
"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."
