GANS & ILEIN ,HABGED rH TREASON tn Entirely New Step in the Tariff Baron's War on American Workmen. Darnegie Involves the State in the Matter Through the Su preme Court. trkllers to Be Followed Unrelentingly in All the Courts and The,,r Organizl tion Wiped Oas. PrrTrsnno, Oat, 1.-The issuance of war rants against the Homestead strike lead ire, which charged them with treason, at be instance of Chief Justice Paxeon yes ierday cassed a decided sensation, not only smong the strikers, but also among sym pathizers here and at Homestead. This is the first time a charge of treason has been )ronuht in any state for acts arising from Sstrike or labor trouble. The strikers are eady to laugh at any charge of riot or murder brought against them by the Car oegie company, but when the great state of Pennsylvania takes the matter up it is an entirely different thing. The informations were lodged after long consultations be tween all the members of the supreme nourt and the district attorney. The novel point in the case is that the chief justice will hear applications for bail before the cases go to the grand jury, nd will call that body before him and deliver his special charge on treason. ihould true bills be found, an unprece lented thing will occur. Chief Justice Paxson, as ex-officio judge of the court of Dyer and Terminer, will sit and try the uases. The attorneys for the strikers de clare the proceeding a perseoution of the defendants and assert that the ebarge of treason cannot be made to nold. The hint of the long contemplated suits for treason against the Carenegies is now to be hushed. O'Donnell, Critchlow aad Clifford are now in jail, making nine that are under arrest. Homestead is quivering with excitement. There is some talk of taking a band and flag, marching to Pltts burg in a body and apply for admission to the jail. Under all this is a deep-sesated anger which is liable to take almost any unexpected turn. 'I his afternoon an informal discussion was held by Chief Justice Paxson and at torneys for both sides. Justice Paxeon has decided that the accused may give bail in $10,000 each, but no to a late hour none of the defendants now in jail have secured the necessary bond. Attorney Knox said the reason the eases were begun in the supreme court was because it always has been the practice in this and other countries to be gin suits for treason in the highest courts. This is done in view of the gravity of the offense. The highest executive authority is resisted and it to proposed that the high est judicial authority of the state should frst take cognizance of the offence. W. J. Brennen, attorney for the amalgamated as sociation, characterized the acrests as the crowning outrage of the great Homestead affair. "Why," said he, "we were just talking about bringing suit against the Carnegie people for treason for bringing an armed force into the community and attempting to usurp the power of the government of the municinality and state." The strikers at Carnegie's city mills, and the friends of their cause, are greatly exercised to-day over the report of an un expected movement by the Carnegie firm. The advisory board, it is said, is to be held on the charges of conspiracy, treason and as many other bills as can be entered against it. On Monday or Tuesday of next week warrants will be served on the mem bers of the board and arrests will be made immediately, so the suits may proceed sim ultaneously with those at Homestead. Supt. Dillon, of the Thirty-third street mill, acknowledged the truth of this state ment this afternoon. TELEGRAPHERS RETUItN TO WORK. Two Versions of the Terms of Settlement Secured. CFDAP RAPIDs, Iowa, O.t. 1.-The strike of the telegraph operatore on the Cedar Rapids & Northern was declared off to-day. The company agreed to recognize the Order of Railway Telographers and the men will return later. The companies agreed that all voaancies in the ranks of dispatchers, agents and operators at present existing shall be tilled from the ranks of men who struck. Any who are not thus provided for will be given preference over others in fill ing varcaciee. The officers of thecompany will not hereafter interfere or discrimin ate against em Iloyes on account of mem bership in the Order of Railway Telegraph ers, and if they desire to send a committee to the propel, officers tor the purpose of again considering the question of the schedule of pay the proper officers of the company will meet and treat with them, uninfluenced by any occurrence connected with the strike. This evening representatives of the Buar lington, Cedar Rlapids & Northern issued the following stattement: "I he strike wae deolred off to-day by Chief Rnamsey.

Ihe Sprlnters Have a Great Day at Mor ris Park. Mounts PAnR Oct. 1.-The rich Matron stakes was decided this afternoon at the psening day, before 15,000 lovers pf the race horse. The weather was perfect. A strong wind was blowing down the straight away and made a lightning fast track-a record breaking one. Much of the import unce of the Matron stakes was lost to' sight when Dr. Hasbrouck, with 122 pounds. chopped two full secnnds off the Ave fur longs record. No one thought him faset enough to lower :59, the record originally made by Aides over the same track, and da. plicated by himself and others afterwards, and when :57 was hung up by the official timers the spectators were amazed and in olined to be skeptical. When Yemen beat iff his opponents to the second race of six furlongs and lowered the record for that Bistance from 1:10% to 1:09%, doubters were convinced that it was surely a record breaking track. There were seventeen starters in the Matron stakes. The betting was one-sided, Miss Maude and Sir Francis being respectively first and second choice it two and two and a half to one. The others were backed at from eight to one to 100 to ten. Rebecca lowett colt headed the bunch half way down the hill and looked a sure winner a sixteenth from the mnish.

He won't, however, pay any at tentiocn to Mitchell unless he comes over here. CORNER IN RIB8. Two Cunning Chicago P'akers IMay Be Prosecuted Therefor. CHIrcAoo, Oct. 1.-Thomas H. Roush swore out warrants to-day for the arrest of John Cudahy and Austin W. Wright, charg. ing them with conspiracy to run a corner on short ribs. When the cholera scare be gan, many packers being afraid of heavy losses, made haste to sell. Wright, it is claimed, was on the long side of the market and much of the ribs were unloaded on him. lie believed that as soon as the cholera scare blew over Iie would be long on a staple article of limited production, while everybody else would be at his mercy. The allegation is made that Cudahy, Chicago representative of the big Omaha-Chiago firm, agreed to hack him in carryine the ribs. Thus rein forced, Wright carried out the campaign. To-dar there were 142,000) barrels of pork, 23.000,000 pounds of ribs, and 22, (X)0 tierces of lard in the Chicago market. Ribs went from $10 to $10.50 during the day, and deliveries amounted to only 4,000,000 pounds. It is said Cadahy and Wright got the whole quantity. The deal is of great importance in view of the fact that the visible euaply of ribs is only 23,0(0).000 pounds, against a short interest of 45,000,000 pounds. T'he shorts are in hot water. Neither Cudahy nor Wright had been arrested up to a late hour to-night. TIlE PUBII(JC liElIT. rhowing tlhe CondlitiLon of tihe Governmuent Finances. W*ASrINrorN, Oct. 1.-Poblio debt state mnut.

The Presence of Oleveland and Leading Demoorats Full of Importance. Conference Held With Demoerats From All Over the Country-The Third Ticket Matter Unsettled. Niw Your, Oct. 1.-The week politically closes upon a situation so congested with possibilities that the probabilities of the coming week may be considered problem atie. The foreground of the political field is at present oacupied chiefly by democratic generals. The republican forces lie back, watch, and waite the movements of their adversaries. The rathering here of demo cratio state and national committeemen and the presence of Cleveland and Hill, all contribute to the growing interest of present democratic movements here. The arriving democratic club men for next week's meeting also adds to the spectacle of the democratic sortie. Cleveland has not yet decided how long he will stay in New York. His stay will be determined in a measure by the progress of the work on his new ofty residence. In any event he will remain here till Tuesday or Wednesday and attend the convention of the national association of democratic clubs. Since his arrival he has seen nearly all the democratic leaders of the city and state, and a large number of prominent politicians engaged in the work of the national campaign. Political conditions in all parts of the country have been laid before Cleveland by the democratic national campaign com mittee and he is said to be well pleased with the outlook, especially in thin state and the northwestern states, which the democrats hope to carry. He told Don M. Dickinson yesterday that he considered Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Illinois debatable ground, and expressed great pleasure with the work of the Chicago branch headquar ters. Cleveland has so far refused to inter fere with the work of the Syraouse convention men. His friends say it is his intention to keep his hands off local poli tics and leave the municipal fight to the men engaged in it. He is confident the state will go democratic, whether there is a third local ticket or not. Talk about his being adverse to a ticket in opposition to Tammany is pure conjecture, based on the statements of Chairman Harrity and Dick ineon, who ate supposed to express Cleve land's sentiments. It is not altogether certain yet that the third tick ticket will be pyrt in the field. -Lest night the Syracuse convention men continued their committee which called upon the national committee and instructed it to confer with other democratic organizations. This may or may not mean combination with the county democracy and Voorhi's democrats. The question is to be decided during the coming week. It is the general opinion to-day that if Cleveland pursues the policy of non-interference Tammany will have a fight on her hands this year. Croker says he does not oere whether there is a third ticket or not so far as Tammany is concerned, but he is apprehensive that a fight among dem oarats might result in the loss of the legis lature and a United States senator. The state committee is apparently taking no interest in local affairs. Its work is con fined to the state above the Harlem river. It has left New York city to Tammany Hall. It is known, however, that Edward Mur phy, Jr., and Lient.-Gov. Sheehan are op posed to putting up two democratic tickets in this city. OHIO DIEMOORATS. Open the Campaign With a Great Meeting at VWoodsdale. WOODSDALE, Island Park, Ohio, Oat. 1. The democrats opened the campaign in this ata tehere this afternoon. Crowds of peo ple entered the grounds long before trains from Cincinnati began to deliver their car goes of uniformed democratic clubs. Vice Presidential Candidate Stevenson and other speakers were escorted to the grounds by a special train. I1he exercises opened with an old-fashioned picnic. Mr. Stevenson, in his address, said he brought good news from North Carolina and Virginia, as well as from Illinois. He spoke hopefully of success in Iowa. Speaking of the reasons for Cleveland's re-election, he said Cleveland's administra tion was admitted, even by republicans, to have been an nonest one. Bonds were paid as fast as matured, nearly a hundred mil lion acres of land rostosed from wrongful holders to the people. lie turned over the government with almost a handfed millions of dollars in the treasury in money eaved by the economical administration of af fairs. The question then was what would be done with the surplu-. Now it is, where shall money be obtaned for the expeunses of the government, 'this yeoar the estimated detctt will be fifty-two millions, and the treasury is confronted with bankruptcy. T'he caune of this is the lavish, even unnecessary appropriations by the billion dollar con grass. The prose!t houso is made to ap pear extravagant because in addition to the necessary rxpenditures it was forced to pay an item of $72,i000,0t left by the billion dollar house and had added to it $32:,t00),000 by the republican senate, while the Me Kinloy tariff cuts off $50,000,000) of national revenue. In the one instance where the republicane removed the tariff, namely, on sugars, they had by that same ball taken $15,000,000 a year for fifteen years from the people to pay the sugar growers a noonty, a clear ease of making one class rich at the expense of the county. Stevenson deolaied that the tariff does not regulatp wages; they are irgulated by the law of supply and demand. \VWges are higher here because lively Anuericau metri ode of labor are more iroduotive than those of the listless European workmen. Dealing with the force bill he declaled its elnactment would nut into the field on elec tion day an a imy of t00,000 federal ollaee hIoldere to be paid fiom the treasury of the government. EK-Gouv. Caimpbell made a humorous speech in which hle spoke of Steviason'a record as the orountor of demooratio post Inaters, relating an incident where the present eandillte lor vlce-president hiad, as a favor to ilun (Ctampbell) decapitated sixty-*ive republiocnu ustmaseter iln two minutes, 110 regordid a luna of that sort as a rvigorous adlt true democrat. When the oheee following this statuement sub dlued, Stevenson arose and said he consid ered that the highest compliment he had irsceived in his whole Ilie. No I'art Il I'.atiuaonl Qalarreals. Borbch to.da received a letter from ex-Presidnot Cleveland referring to his much talked of alleged interfer slce with the factional fight anung the dmooerata In 'oeas, Mr. Cloevland lays he has not in any manner or form in terfered withththe controversy and doesn't intend to do so. "Whever there are demo. orate earnestly supporting the principle of the democratic party," said he, "I am in sympathy with them, but where there are factiona I shall take no part in their diffi cultises.".: .

In the afternoon it was discovered that the drums, which were to head the proposed parade, were missing. After considerable search they were dis covered on the top of the First National bank building, and the parade, consisting of about thirty small boys, got started rather late. Theo crowd did not filll the house to its full capacity, but was orderly and attentive, and included matny ladies. Hon. Allen Miller, of Ogden, Utah, was the first speaker introduced. lis remarks were principally on the tariff issue and English manufacturers. The old questions of wages and protection were gone into, but the usual rmass of statistics that are generally fired at political mass meetings were not produced. After Mr. Miller had closed his remarks a number of the audi ence arose to depart, and Judge Francis was introduced to about two-thirds of the original crowd. lie dilated on the force bill, southern elections and the war record of the republican party. BIy the time he concluded what he had to say the audience was much smaller than when he com menoed. The meeting could be styled as particularly enthusiastic. The remarks on the force bill were particularly pleasing to a number of republicans present. Populists or Yellowstone.

They endorsed the following candidates on the democratic ticket: Milburn for judge, Morse for treasurer, Mann for clerk of the district court, Smith for assessor, Mrs. Crampton for superintendent of schools, O'Donnell for representative, Toole, Herbert and Grn well for commissioners. The following candidates on the republican ticket were endorsed: For attorney, Clements; for surveyor, Lamport, and for administrator, Wilkinson. Fire in Queer Alley.

An Improvement Noticeable as thebo Work Neared the Ead. Now that the paving of Main street from Cutler street to Helena avenue has been completed there is a noticeable improve ment in the last third of the work over the other parts. While this may in a measure be due to the fact that the men at work on the paving became more expert as they went along, the bulk of the credit belongs to the Montana Lumber company, which furnished the blocks for the last third of the paving. The blocks furnished by the Montana Lumber company were of fir, the same as those for the other part of the work, and they had the advantage of being thoroughly dried and free from sunp. There was no delay in the delivery of the blocks, so that work was not stopped at any time for even part of a day on that account. The contract for the delivery of the blocks, and the manner in which it was carried out. only adds another notch to thealready high reputation of the Montana Lumber company for vrompt dealing and best quality of goods.

Ancient Telegrams, an Old Maid and a Bird the Prominent Features. Ueoming Mr. Carter for senatort and Trying to Tell How Seven Is a Majority of Sixteen. MILes CITY. Oct. 1.--fpecial.]-J. E. Itickards, the republican candidate for gov error, is running one of the most unique campaigns on record. It is a Carterian explanatory campaign, in which the only things that figure are some telegrams, Ben jumin Harrison, a bird story, the legisla live candidates, and "How I declared re cults in the senate deadlock," Mr. Rick ards started on his campaign about ten days ago, and after a while got to Lewis town, in Fergus county. From there he worked his way down, visiting Red Lodge, Billings, and Miles City to-night. He does not travel alone, his principal assistant be ing Judge Hamilton, of Butte. The speech of the lieutenant governor is the same at all places, with just a little local spice thrown in, and the Carter ear marks are so plain in the introductory portions as to be readily recognized by any one who has studied the ex-land commiesioner's methods. The re publican gubernatorial nominee does not touch the tariff issue, nor the silver ques tion, nor the mineral land dis cession, nor the third party move. ment, nor any thing else save as it affects directly Harrison, Riekards and Carter. And the methods employed to enthuse the faithful before the explana tion begins are ieally the result of much, thought. The modus operandi are the same at all places where a meeting is held, so the story of the gathering at Billings Friday evening will illustrate them all. When the party gets to a town where Mr. Rickards is to speak the chairman of the county or precinct is placed in possession of a telegram. soiled and worn from fre quent handling, and requested to read it when he calls the meeting to order. If the town happens to be on the railroad the state committee, during the day, sends a leading republican a dispatch. The pre liminaries thus arranged when the meeting is opened the local manager takes the plat form, and with little or no preface reads the following: To lion. J, E. Ilickard--'lTle campaign is looking splendid. ieports from all over the atale are, the most promising. We will carry Silier IBow for you by l,(ie majority. Keep up your end and we will win. BrATv CoIsarTTLa Of course this is duly applauded, and then the chairman, if on a railroad line, reads the following: To -- --- We beapak for 'r. Rickards a cordial recepti ~r by tihe repubaieans of -- STATE CoarirITTcua. Then Mr. Itickards is introduced. He begins by saying he will not discuss the tariff issue and other vital questions, but will leave them to the gentlemen who will follow him, promising his auditors a feast it thgv will but remain to hear them. Then he tells the people that this is the first time the residents of Montana will have the chance to make their voices heard in a national contest. Text comes a reference to President Harrison, including an ad monition to all republicans to vote for the republtcan electors. This section of the speech occupies just three minutes by the watch in its delivery. Then Mr. Rickards tells with great detail the story of an old maid and a bird, a story that was old In campaign literature when Mr. Rickards was a boy. It takes just two minutes to rehearse the bird romance.
