THE PITTSBUR& DISPATCH, THURSDAY, JULY 7, 1892.
8 J ACROSS JTHE RIVER. "Viewing the Battle From the North Shore of the Monongaliela, THE HILL-TOPS CROWDED With Thousands of Interested Eesi dents of the East End. PEERING THROUGH TELESCOPES. An Interesting Stroll From Brown's Station to Braddock. CAREFDL SCRUTINY OF BTRAKGERS Zip! Zip! Zip! Zip! like the flifiht of a startled duck across the gleaming face of the river sped a rifle ball and buried itself in the shaly bank. "Ah, sir," said a woman who stood with her arms rolled up in her apron, "'twere better they did all go into the bank like that one than into the bodies of the poor men over there." The whistle of a train at Swiss vale sta tion sonnded shrilly. Below shone the Monont-ahela and over yonder directly in front frowned the blackened, silent chim neys and stacks of the Homestead works. There to the right lay the tonn of Home stead stretching back from the smoking chimneys of the glass works to the hills. The town that "Carboline" Kennedy saw in his mind years ago lay there brave in new brick homes and yellow, freshly cut streets. Then came the rambling buildings and the green spots of Chief Elliot's farm. Here began the line of white new fence which skirts the river bank and can be seen along the railroad track between the build- ings of the mill plant. The Mills nn.-l the Hirer. Then came the long lines of idle work shops, the great piles of metal in ingots, ore and merchantable forms, ranged one against the other for halt a mile along the crescent of the river bend. Cutting the glistening line of the water, just above ns to the left, were the -neblike lines of the railroad bridce, and there, on the northern shore, were the tall stacks of the Carrie Furnace. Lying close nnder the sheer, tall bank, just above the bridge, were the causus belli, the two barges loaded with Pinkerton men. That is hardly exact they were loaded with such freight a few moments ago, but now iher have a mixed and motley crowd on them, for the surrender has taken place and victors and vanquished are together at closer quarters than they have been since the early morning. Along the bare knobs on the high north ern side of the river, hundreds of people armed with opera glasses, telescopest and field glasses have been standing for hours. TJp at the Carrie Furnaces there are five or six hundred men in a fro up. Here and there on the hillside and own along the bank, near the roadway of the Baltimore and Ohio, were snap-shot artists taking what they could get jnst as the people across the stream were doing fill the furnishment of the boats they had ptured, only they had no cameras. Tlie Shout of Victory. A great shout comes across the water.and, een through powerful field glasses, a stream if men, women and children climbs up the lank from the boats and is soon lost sight jf behind the mill buildings. In the center jif this strenjjire men. carrying bags and oundrei, men wllo are evidently under guard. They are the prisoners, going they know not where in the wilderness of wort shops. Derisive cheers and cries come clearly up from the valley and now and then there is the crack of a revolver or the louder boom of a gun. Those who went first, those who formed the main body of the captured, were hustled and jostled as they walked slowly through the crowd, and sticks and stones were be- stowed upon them from the outer edges of the throng with cheerful liberality. Those who tailed the procession, the men who struggled along singly or in pairs, were the ones who suffered most. They were beaten with clubs or struck with chunks that lay handy, and which were hurled in right good earnest. Occasionally one of the men would be thrown down, and then some stalwart, coatless ficuie would do a skirt dance on the stomach of the common foe. It was too far an ay to catch the expression on faces, but there was a limpness and a staggering nd a dragging of arms and legs after these little scenes that was as pathetic and spoke as loudly of pain and suffering as words or groans. Hurrying the Men Ashore. For half an hour this went on. How and then some man would be rushed up the bank and out into the mill yard. These laggards raid well for their taridness, whatever its cause was, lor they ran the guantlet of the angry crowd like in the days when the squaws wielded rods and tomahawks and white men ran between the lines. At last this came to an end and there was more cheering,and then it seemed as though anfant hill had been opened and its in habitants were fleeing in every direction. These human ants bore burdens. Some had glistening burdens, some bore loads of a brilliant red and others white or brown. These on inspection became coffee pots, tin pans; bedding, mattresses, packages of provisions or clothing the plunder of the barges. For another half hour these busy ones carried off their find ings through 'the yards, up the tracks, along the river outside the fence, or loaded them in skiffs and carried them across the river. Then came a cloud of boys, little girls and women, who seemed to ransack the barges of smaller articles, and then as if disgusted or satiated they began throwing '.hings into the river. AVash tubs, pots and bright tinware floated slowly down the uggish stream and bobbed up and down ove where the bodies of some of the nkerton men lay. 3v this time the crowd on the bank had lbly lessened. Hot more than 300 or 400 id about on the top of the bank or lined bridge. Karnlnff thi Model Barges. uddenly there wag a quick movement on barges. Children were off first and then . and women followed them. They hur- 1 off a hundred yards, half above and if below the barges, and stood looking at em as if something was to happen. Some- .ing did happen very shortly. From a ornerofthe barge furthest out from the bank came a puff of smoke, then a ame shot up into the air and tv the time one conld count 100, both of the barces t ere brilliantly .ablaze. There was oil and tar in plenty on the barges if one could judge from the smoke, for in a great, dense column it rose straight in the air until it seemed to join the rose tinted mackerel clouds. Blacker and blacker, bigger ana bigger grew the smoke cloud, and wild were the cheers from both groups of strikers. They waved caps and hats, guns and clubs. Just then a locomotive, black, with men, run across the bridge, and when it was mid way over the water a tall man stood up on the tender, waved a white rag and danced a jig. Soon the smoke decreased as the fire less ened, and the hulks with their cargo of glowing embers or burning timbers came "V clearly into sight, while the steamboat land ine blared merrily. . "Women and Chtldren na Spectators. All this time the crowds on the hills In creased. The green slopes above the mills were alive with women and childreu, while hundreds of people who had come out to Swissrale on the evening trains came hurrying through the woods. The twilight came, lights began to twinkle in the homes on the hills and in the valley. The light of the embers gleamed across the river mingling with the stray sun rays. Night was coming. It was said that bullets broke some glasses In the houses nearby, and one woman showed a bullet which had buried itself in the door of her kitchen. A tall and rather pretty girl with a book tinder her arm watched the flames. "I wouldn't care If all those men were in there now," said she, smilingly. "They had no business to come and try to hurt these poor people. Tes, they ought to be burned up. She was quite in earnest, and on the book in gilt letters ran the title, "Hymnal and Song Service." "Well," said a brawny English workman, "this is the first of it. I wonder how much of a bill the taxpayers will have to pay." INTERESTED IN HIM. A "Walk From Brown' Station to Bra-dock That Was Fall or Incident Strangers Regarded With Considerable Caution Men Who Had Opinion. "When a reporter for The Dispatch made a trip along the north side ot the Monongahela river yesterday afternoon there were some queer things developed. The reporter started from Brown's station, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, with the purpose in view ot finding out just ex actly where the cannon was located which had caused such deadly e fleet. The cannon could not be found on the north side of the river. The face is it had ceased its boom- ing when the clock struck the hour before noon and was taken across the river. The reporter so soon as he landed at Brown's station was made at once aware ot the fact that he was a center of interest. It may have been from the fact that he wore glasses. At all events he seemed to be a man who was worth looking after. A leisurely walk up that miserably cobble stoned road with three men dogging "his footsteps was not an encouraging outlook. Took a Great Interest In Him. "When he had reached the City Farm station the reporter began to feel just a lit tle nervous. There were three men follow ing him, but about every hundred yards he was stopped by gentlemen who insisted upon knowing his business. It was all done colitelv, but then it was the least bit em barrassing. It was a question of give a sat isfactory explanation, wait for the next train, or take the river. Taking the river meant that a roan should be able to swim. As the reporter could not swim, it was Making and Sending Exciting A'ews. agreed after a few persuasive words, that he be allowed to follow the roadway leading to Braddock. "With a heart full of greatfulness he started up the road with an idea in his nod dle that all dangers had been overcome. "What are you going to do here?" was a query that stopped the reporter suddenly within five minutes after he bad parted from his supposed friends. The reply was satisfactory. Along up the river similar delegations were met. It was question and answer un til the Pemicky bridge was reached. At' this point a man fired a shot and it knocked the reporter out. It t"n Not a Salute, The reporter thought this a salute, but the whiz of a bullet made him stop and think. He did not have to thiak long be fore out of the bushes above the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks came a great, big, brawny fellow, who also wanted to know what the intruder wanted. The answer set tled everything. But shots Were being fired in the air and they were for fun. The fun, however, was far reached. Op posite Homestead it was kept up until the poor fellows on the barges had put out the white flag of surrender. When this was done the tnauy boats struck for the shore, and wo men were the gayest of the gay in them. When it was learned that the men on the barges had surrendered one of the most inde scribable sceneB occurred. The boats which had been lying upon the opposite side of the river practically dropped their rough crews and their places were taken by women. Along the road clear down to Braddock were men who were dressed in evidently their best suit of clothes. They were all either bound for Homestead or therefrom. They were all telling the story of their experiences either among the fighters or among those who showed their sympathy with them. To say that they were enthusiastic would but put it mildly. There was not a man among them who had not an opinion to express and a strong one at that D Witt's I.tttle Earlv Risers. No crrlnlnp nu pain, nu nausea: easy pui to laze. J SI ' HEARD OfTTHE CURBS Sentences Canght Here and There Among the Bulle tin Board Crowds. PITY FOE THE PINKERTONS Was Lost in the Remembrance of Their Deeds in the Past. THE CONDUCT OP THE COMPANY Discussed From the Standpoints of Both Capital and Labor. THE CALL FOR A CITIZEN'S MEETING All conversation in Pittsburg streets yesterday was on the one all-absorbing topic of the terrible troubles at 'Homestead. And to all practical purposes public opinion was united in condemning the manufacturers to a greater or less degree. Plenty of deep regrets were uttered that the strikers should have been ill-advised enough to disregard the orders of their leaders and resort to violence; but even the most conservative among the talkers laid the blame at the manufacturers' door for provoking the anger THE BATTLE WITH THE BARGES. of the crowds by importing men for whom there is so deep a hate as is universally felt for the employes of Pinkerton. As the bulletins appeared one after an other, the talk wonld change with the cur rent of events at the scene ot action, but it always returned to a diatribe against the mismanagement which had fired the pas sions of the workmen. "Surely the trouble could have been fixed before it came to this pass," said one peaceable looking, well clad man. "Of course it could," replied another whose whole bearing breathed of labor, "but the managers of the works didn't want to fettle it; what they wanted wbb to in cite the men to riots and they did it too." "But," said the first speaker, "what ob ject could they have in so doing? A Laborers' View of the Action. And the man of labor replied: "Can't you see that they want to be independent of union labor once and for all? If that's not what they want, I'd like to know why they refused to accept the services of mem bers ot the Alatnagated Association as deputy sheriffs with bonds filed as a guar antee that they would properly discharge their duties. If they didn't want to make trouble, whv did they choose men who are the hated of the labor world to be the de fenders of their property, and if they must have Pinkerton men why didn't they take 'em rightinto the yard y the railway?" And this is only a sample of many simi lar sayings. Another opinion ot the tactics of the Carnegie people was that they should either have Imported no men at all or have made such a show of strength as would have been irresistible. Many were the reminis cences of 1877 recalled and chatted over during the day, ana many were the com parisons drawn between then and now. There was a strong inclination to doubt Ihe news sent from the front. and as item alter item was confirmed and the absence of exaggeration was definitely ascertained the bulletin read ers were convinced and saddened the more bv their convictions. Yet there was no sug gestion of a panic, and, with characteristic American nonchalance, laughter was in dulged in whenever a spark of humor lit up the situation, and there was a general feel ing that "it'll all come out right in the end." At The Dispatch llnlletln Bnarrt. Talks in front of The Dispatch window were passed from mouthy to mouth, and the second received a comment from the third and so on. All sorts and conditions of men were represented in the crowds, and women made remarks en passant. "This is terrible," said one. "It hurts both sides," remarked another. "I'd give anvthing," said a quiet looking tradesman, "if the men hadn't fired the first shot" "Well, now its started, I hope thev'll give them Pinkertons such a lesson as'll keep 'em out of this State for the future," went on a man who looked like a clerk of some kind. Tben a lawyerly looking individual adaea: "xney may be able to run the country round Chicajro or Cleveland with Pinkertons, but when they come into Pennsylvania the sooner they find out their mistake the better it'll be for their health." "Home stead ain't going to run Pittsburg," said a dapper, dignified little man. "Homestead doesn't want to," replied a brawny specimen of athletic humanity, "it wants to manage J its own analrs, and wants outsiders to leave it alone, as It leaves them." When the bulletin announced that the Pinkerton ammunition was giving out, a bystander whose outward appearance was more that of a man of fashion than ol a man of muscle, chuckled as he remarked to his companion, "It isn't our ammunition, "and his neighbor replied: "You bet it isn't; we're going to drive those Pinxertons to the bottom of the river or off the face of the earth." Th Sentiment for the. .strikers. And this use of pronouns of the first and second persons was far commoner than that of the third, and the pronoun used always indicated an identity of interest with the strikers. Words of commiseration for the Pinkerton men on acconnt of their inferior numbers and the violations of their flags of truce and the conditions of their surrender were rarely made, and were mild when heard, and yet were greeted with well nigh unanimous disapproval. Even the accounts of the brutal and cowardly treat ment accorded to the surrendered men as they appeared in the window evoked little but remarks to. the effect that "it served them right " 'This is a Republic," said one man, with the form and semblance oi a sturdy son of America, as he accentuated he "is." And a similar man replied: "It's childish; that's what it is." "But it's no child's play," said another. "It will give the labor cause a bad set baok." "That's what it was provoked for." "What a name Pittsburg will get," "It's got it already." "If the manufacturers simply wanted to protect their property there should have been no sneaking in about it If their property was in danger they should have brought a strong force in by daylight, as tbey had a right to do, and not tried to smuggle in a few men at the mercy of the strikers by night," said an iron manufacturer. Refusal to Accept Union Deputies. The general opinion seemed to be that so long as the oiler of the Association men to be sworn in as deputies was refused, the Sheriff was powerless to get together any considerable force of local volunteers. As to the militia, attention was called to the fact that many militiamen, even from a distance, aro mill workers, and that even those who are not would be likely to let tneir sympatny wun labor rather than their military sense of duty control their movements. Pittsburg was well posted as to the fight and not a few went back of that to discuss the differences in the scale. Most of the debaters, however, expressed an opinion that the rioting and the strike were due to no petty differences as to rate of pay, but that it was a fight deliberately entered into by the manufacturers to free themselves from the power of organized labor. There were plenty of sarcastic allusions to free libraries and the men who made gifts of tnem as tne result ot others' toil. Dlfferenoi In Theory and Practice. Temperate talk was by no means com mon. A remark that the workers had no right to use force to prevent others from accepting the terms they had refnsed brought out a man who looked as if be had weathered many .strikes, who -said in a sar donic tone of voice: "That's all right in theory, friend, but impractice it is found rather hard to deal with capitalists, without making a show of determination to equal the tremendous strength of capital." But in general the opinions were that the strikers had injured them selves by the use of arms and force, and that the real blame for the matter lay with those who had placed temptation in their way. There was a talk of monopolies and monopolists in the air- and the tendency of manufacturers to combine with or absorb one another, and several speakers instanced the Homestead works as rapidly approach ing the position of a Pittsburg monopoly. Alter the Sheriff's proclamation appeared all passersbV noticed it and a large per centage ot them indicated by their remarks that the attendance of volunteers at the Sheriff's office would not be overwhelming in its numbers. Several ladies were heard to remark: "I am no good citizen" and a great many men made a like response to the appeal. Attending the Sheriffs Meeting. A lady and gentleman with a noticably newly married appearance walked past the bulletin and held the following dialogue en passant: He Did you .read that? She Yes, it's infamous. He "Subsistence," that means grub. She Well, you won't go, dearest, good citizen or bad. Others were heard to mention that "if he thinks his commands mean my obedience, he will find himself left." No citizen was good or boastful enough to advertise him self as a volunteer, and there were numer ous suggestions that by the morrow there would be little rioting' to quell, and what there was the military might deal with by itself. Comparisons between Governor Pattison's inaction now and Beaver's behavior at the time of the coke strikes were often to be En Route to JJomatead. heard. Sometimes the past was compli mented at the expense ot the present, but more generally the feeling ran the other way. As the evening wore on spectators of the violence appeared and were rapidly, sur rounded bv knots of excited auditors. But even the barrowinj description given by the eye witnesses of the dastardly treat ment given to the Pinkerton men after their surrender failed for ihe most part to draw forth any condemnation ot the strikors or sympathy lor the abused prisoners. It ap peared on all sides that the odium In which Pinkerton men are held is such as to drown all pity, or suoh charity as there is must have begun and stayed within the walls of home, tor it was unheard of on the side walks.

A MEETING OP THE CABINET BELD fBFECIAL TKLEOKAU TO THE DISPATCH. Habbisbuko, July 6. When Governor Pattison retired at a late hour last night he closed his eyes with the consciousness that the Homestead labor troubles would be peacefully settled, but he had scarcely en tered the Executive Chamber this morning before he received the startling news of an outbreak that had already resulted in the death of several persons. This information was supplemented a short time afterward by intelligence announcing the death of ten men. The Governor was shocked at the serious turn of affairs and anxiously awaited official information concerning the fight About 10:45 a dispatch was received at the Executive Department from Sheriff Mc Cleary, stating that the civil authorities were utterly unable to cope with the strik ing workmen, 5,000 of whom were on the ground. He spoke of his deputies having been driven away by the strikers and briefly referred to shots that had been ex changed and to the fact that several men had been killed. Prompt measures were suggested to prevent further bloodshed and to avert great destruction of property. The Governor and the SherlK . The Governor was evidently not satisfied with the message, as it did not show what efforts the Sheriff had made to secure a rea sonably large force of deputies to preserve the peace. A reply was promptly wired that the "local authorities must exhaust every means at their command," after he had eliminated from the dispatch as origi nally framed a statement that there would be no military interference until it had been demonstrated that the civil power was inadequate to the preservation of peace. The Governor during the early afternoon received a large number of dispatches of a private nature from residents of Pittsburg and vicinity making suggestions as to the policy he shonld pursue with relation to the violent disturbance. Some of the writers urged him to have the troops ordered out promptly in the interest of peace, one of them expressing the fear that if such action were not taken the riots of 1877 would be more than paralleled. Any Quantity or Advice. Host of these dispatches were from per sonal friends of the Governor. Other friends counseled him against too much haste in shoving the military to (he front, as this mode of meeting the difficulty might be attended with more serious consequences than an attempted suppression of the out break by the civil authorities. Several persons, who kept the Governor posted as to the progress of the fight, insisted that the Sheriff had not exhausted his means to restore peace, and that, in view of that fact, military interposition was not justifiable. One of them strongly intimated that the active presence of Pinkerton detectives had precipitated the conflict, which was not started until these obnoxious people made their appearance on the scene. Owing to the divergent views as represented in the various telegrams and the unsatisfactory character ot the shenli s appeal tor help, the Governor was unable to make up his mind as to the best policy he should pursue. Action or the Executive. In order to reach an early conclusion he addressed a dispatch to Sheriff McCleary asking htm how many deputies he had sworn in and what measures he had taken to en force order and protect property. Over two hours elapsed before he received a reply, which stated that 12 deputies selected by the.Sheriff had been driven away by the strikers and closing with the statement that the civil authorities were powerless to meet the situation, that an armed and disciplined force was needed to prevent further loss of life, and that immediate action was de manded from the Executive. The Governor read the replv with evident displeasure and promptly dictated the fol lowing: Vonr tftlp urn indicates tlmfc vnn linvo not inado any attemnt to execute tlio law tp enlotco order.and I must insist on your call ing upon the citizens loran adequate number or deputies. During the morning and afternoon the Governor had several conferences with Sec retary Harrity and Attorney General Hensel relative to the situation at Homestead. Adjutant General Greenland, who had been in Philadelphia, reached Harrisburg this afternoon, and just before Sheriff McCleary 's telegram, which elicited the sharp answer from the Governor, was received, the Chief Executive and his Adjutant General had a consultation as to tbe advisability ot dis patching a portion of the National Guard to the scene ot the labor troubles. A Meetlnz of the Cabinet. At a late hour there was a full meeting of the Cabinet on the same subject The Gov ernor is thoroughly convinced that tbe mil itary should not be called out to suppress the outbreak until clear evidence has been tecured that the civil power is inadequate to the emergency. As rq illustration of the virtne and force of the exercise of the civil power he refers to the settlement of the strike at the Pennsylvania Steel Com pany's works, two miles east of this city, nearly a year ago. The Dauphin county onenir anu ins uepaiies men nau nu uu ficulty in pieserving the peace, although nearly 4,000 men were on a strike. Pattison received' a dispatch from Pitts burg to-night from one of the Governor's staff as follows: "Pinkerton men have sur rendered and strikers have allowed them to land. They are now on their way to this city. Everything is quiet now and no trouble is apprehended to-night Your last telegram to the Sheriff has induced him to issue n proclamation calling upon citizens to meet at 9 a. m. to-morrow, pre pared to go to Homestead and restore order. Your course meets general ap proval." I'lrmij Opposrd to Sendlnc: Troop. Governor Pattison said to-night that he had at no time to-day intended to call out the troops his information not justifying such action. Soldiers are not policemen, he said, to be sent for to quell any disturb ance, however small. He was satisfied that if a resort had been had to military inter ference that the settlement of the troubles at Homestead would have been deferred much longer than under existing circum stances. The Governor took occasion to deny em phatically the truth of" the dispatch from Atlantic Citv printed in a number of papers stating that he intended to visit Pittsburg in response to an alleged petition asking him to go there. .He had no knowledge ot such a petition and also denied having sent several dispatches to Attorney Generar Hensel relative to the Homestead situation. Everything in the telegram he declared to THE WANT AND MISCEL LANEOUS ADS WILL BE FOUND ON THE NINTH PAGE OF TO-DAY'S DISPATCH, be a misstatement, as heknew nothing then of any serious trouble at Homestead, The Governor said the idea of Sheriff McCleary having performed his duty in pressing Into service ten deputies to suppress tbe out break was absurd.

A n Artery In Joseph Lupa'a Leg Was Sov ered by a rtuliet, end Ho Pled, Yesterday afternoon a pine coffin stained red, a figure in blue overalls, a black driver and a gray horse, rattled down Stevenson street, and all that was mortal of Joseph Lupa, a striking workman of the Homestead Steel Compauy, was hauled over the uneven streets ot Pittsburg to bis home in St. Mary's cemetery. Joseph Lupa and a Icllow workman were wounded early yesterday morning, when the Pinkertons attacked the guard at the works. Both were shot below the joint of the knee, but the bullet that struck Lupa had been billeted and cut one of the mai n arteries of the leg. His case was hopeless when he arrived at the hospital, but it was thought his robust strength would pull him through.
