if she saw him now, flushed with
his unusual effort and struggling
to stifle the tough which fol

that she might not lose him.

I day in Pittsburg Itself is not prolific of results; !
I considerable, however, was done in surrounding |
: towns. In this city all the idle mills are In the j
j same condition as before the failure of the con- 1
ference to settle the strike, and no apparent
move is being m-ide by the manufacturers to
j start the mills, consequently there has been no
I break in the strikers' ranks.
The most important strike points to-night !
I seem to be Leechburg and Wellsvllle, with Me- i
j Keeapon ■ possible trouble centre. From [
Leechburg this telegram was received:
At 4 O'clock this afternoon the My.!, park mill.
' Which has been idk- since the ttrst of this year,
i was started. K. S. Pargny, manager of the
j American Steel Association; Harry Davis, d!s-
I trict superintendent, and Hubert Lock, local
j manager, were on the ground At 3:43 o'clock ;
' this afternoon a train arrived at Hyde Park,
coming from Saltsberg, Vandergrlft and Apollo.
, The train stopped at the works and fifty-five |
: nun. clad in working garb and carrying dinner
' buckets, left the train and hurried Into the
: works. There was no excitement, and the mill
owners and managers to-night claim they now
have enough men to operate all of the five plant
: mill. Sentinels are out. and no on. 1 is allowed
to get into the mill without a password Late
this afternoon fix mill m.-:. from Leechburg
sauntered down toward the mill, passed the
: guards and walked Into the mills, where to- •
night they are at work. Tins makes sixty-one
men now employed at the works. By outsiders
, it is claimed that this number cannot operate
; the mill in full, but however this may be, the ;
i mill is running to-night in good shape.
The Amalagamated men however, are on the
ground, making desperate efforts to keep all
union men out. They make the bold assertion
; that in two days after President Shaffer Iffucs
his general strike order not a wheel will be 1
turning In either Vandergrlft, Apollo or Hyde
From WeUsvillc, Ohio, the following report is
The last four of the striking steel workers
who were arrested on Saturday, charged with
riot, were released from Jail late this afternoon
upon bail. There are warrant! yet In the hands
of the police for seventeen more of the strikers
which have not yet been served. The officers. ,
i for some reason, seem to be afraid to serve the
warrants. Henry B. Henderson, a potter, for :
whr>m the police have a warrant, has been try- :
ing to get himself In the wry of the officers all
day, to have them arrest him, but they will not
'iii it. for the reason that Henderson is backed
by the National Brotherhood of Operative Tot-
Lets, and the officers fear the vengeance of the
potters, once they are aroused, as they would
be if one of their number were put under ar
rest. Secretary Duffy of the potters, when seen •
to-day, denied that the brotherhood had any 1
Intention of calling the members out in sym- j
pathy with the steel workers.

Cleveland, Ohio, Aug. .I.— Relative to the

railroad men. the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers and the Brotherhood of Trainmen,
which have their national herdqunrters here,
nay become involved in the steel strike, of

The policy of the brotherhood has always

orders of his employer to hand freight for J
; mills operated by non-union men who ha >■ i

brotherhood could do nothing In his behalf and :

Washington, Aug. -Assistant Secretary Taylor
of the Treasury Department, to-day received tele
grams from shipowners •"•■! Blasters of vessels
lately arrived In San Francisco, saying that, owing
to the strike there, they are unable to unload their

the snips' be permitted to unload the vessels, the
masters and owners guaranteeing to the govern
ment that they would not be permitted to go beyond
the wharves and to prevent their escape, Mr. Tay

the corporation would be affected for a time,
th- re would be no necessity for stopping or de
creasing the dividends oh its preferred or com
The belief that the strike would not reach the
proportions indicated by some recent threats of
the strike leaders was strong in Wall Street, and
helped to keep up the price of Steel stocks. It
was said by bankers and brokers who have kept
themselves well Informed about the strike situ
ation that there was a division in the ranks of
the Amalgamated Association previous to Satur
day's conference of the leaders in this city, and
that there was reason to believe that the situ
ation had become worse for the association since
tjne abrupt ending of that conference and the
breaking off of negotiations for peace. A sign
of weakness, it was declared, was the coming
of the strike leaders to this city without an in
vitation, to ask for new terms from the Steel
Corporation. Another sign of weakness, it was
said, was the failure of President Shaffer to
give Immediate orders for an extension of the
strike. His reported talk about delaying orders
for a week and trying to extend the strike at a
later date seemed to convince many operators
in Wall Street yesterday that the Amalgamated
Association bad been losing ground and might
not be a.i'l to close many more mills.
Estimates made in Wall Street yesterday were
thai -20,000 loves of the American Sheet
Steel the American Tin Plate and the American
Steel Hoop companies, the three subsidiary com
panies of the United States Steel Corporation
ut present affected by the strike, were idle,
causing a loss of about $130,000 a day In wages.
The most serious loss of business to the steel
corporation. It was said, had been In the tin
mills the output of other mills being duplicated
by mills not yet affected by the strike. It was
estimated that employes of the Federal Steel
Company, the National Steel Company and the
National Tube Company, three of the steel cor
poration's companies Into which the strike lead
ers have threatened to carry the fight, number
T'.mhh. and earn about $230,000 a day. There are
many mills of the three companies which are
believed to be non-union mills of such character
as to Mis! an order to join in the Ftrike. Only
an actual order for a trial of strength, it is
said, will show to what extent the strike can be
Spread in the mills of the three companies.
The return of C. M. Schwab to his office at
No. 71 Broadway yesterday led to ■ report that
the Steel Corporation would give out a state
ment In reply to the one issued by President
Shaffer iind other strike leaders on Saturday.
Mr. Schwab was in his office most of the day.
hut he stuck to his policy of silence, and other
officials of the rorpo.-ation declined to say any
thing about the strike situation. J. Pierpont
Morgan was at his office in Wall-«t. before noon
and remained there until about 1 p. m.. but It
was said that he had no conf rence with offi
cials of the Steel Corporation, an i he declined
to talk about any phase of th strike.

Butte Mont., Aug. 5. — Latest developments In the
■ensational Minnie Healey case reveal still new
complications, It is now asserted that the Bracket!
woman has been in the employ el the h —l— tee
company for some time; th.-it she cam.- to Butte to
get employment with Hainan worked into his con
ndenee and got assigned to the work of Influencing
Judge Harnej In the decision. In, all of this, it is
alleged, she succeeded, Harae) fulling in love and
Helnze and his company having eomplets confidence
in her. She had for a confederate, it Is said, an
attorney who always was Informed when Judge
Harney or the l£i-lnz<> people were i" call. Then he
always ''happened In."
The copies of letters she sent to and received
from Judge Harney. which purported to show how
i,,. was influenced into giving the Minnie Healey
mine to Hclnz.-. were. It la asserted, all Copied by
the Bracket! woman. According to this latest
story, when she came to Hutte she deposited 515.0C0
In a 'bank, went Into luxurious quarter* at the

get the Job of stenographer with Helnze. She Is
about forty, homely and yet It la said one of the

were made the basis for the application for a new

All the parties, including Judge Harney and Mm.
Adit H. Brackett. who iiuve been held In contempt
of court for refusing to testify before a notary,
were to-day granted a writ of habeas corpus by
Judge McClernan. This simply decides) that a
notary public had no authority to commit to Jail
for refusing to testify before him. As in in.- let

number of married men. the chances are that there
rill be "some warm divorce proceedings as a result.

William E. Whiteman, fifty-four years old. a
wealthy dealer in bottles at No. 144 Chambers
st., was found dead in his apartments at No.
'A' 2 East Forty-fifth-st. last night under some
what peculiar circustances.
Mr. Whiteman was in business with his
brother Abram V. Whiteman. The house in
which he lived is a boarding; house conducted
by Mrs. Townsey. Mr. Whiteman occupied a
suite of rooms on the parlor floor. When he

and meant to take a good long sleep.
Yesterday morning the servant went to his
room with some oatmeal and milk, She knocked
at the door, but getting no answer, went down
stair*. She went to the room again at noon, tak
ing: a light luncheon, but there was no response
to her knocks. When a third attempt was made

ordered the undertaker not to disturb the body
until the Coroner had made an autopsy.
It is said that when Mrs. Townsey discovered
the dead man th*re was a bottle lying on the

some of the citizens. Carr was determined : thai
Lawton should be run on "wide open" nri

close several gambling halls.
This morning Miss Beals, who is now at work
building some small houses on her farm adjoin
ing the town site, was called on by a delegation
of citizens and asked to become Mayor of tha
town. She is not really eligible to hold las offlce
because of the fact that she has not resided la

serve as city marshal and Mayor until th» tow a
was redeemed from Its present troubles. She re
fused at first, but finally agreed to take the
matter of becoming city marshal under advise

rate. She said that she is not fit for that, but
she thinks she can keep the bad men quiet Sh»

thought she will continue to serve.
Asked about how she would prevent shootint

"I will not use six shooters on the boys, but I
will teach them what kindness is. and aass
little doubt that I can win them over to my way

Reports received here to-day from Wag.oner
and Vinca, Ind. T. are to the effect that m.
e:al tboasaad members of the Cherokee Indian
tribe are holding big medicine dances at various
places in the Cherokee Nation. At these dances
prayers are being offered to the Great Fattier
to send rain. Only the thoroughbreds are takir.r
