Xo one disputed the possession of Home stead with the locked-out workmen yester day. Nothing of a warlike character ex cept the continual watch developed np to midnight. The several barrooms in the town remained closed until evening, and there was no drinking or dissipation. The principal streets of the tewn were aban doned all day, and the people who did not attend the funerals of their dead associates remained on guard on the river banks, about the great Homestead works, and at the railroad station. Under the surface of tbe almost painful quiet, however, there was a nervous cur rent that at times seemed ominous. Wild reports reached the labor leaders from every direction that armed invaders are headed in the direction of tbe recent conflict and the active spirits, while endeavoring to keep down even an evidence of concern, moved hurriedly along the guard lines, keeping the watchers on the alert and prepared for any surprise that might be given them. "rhe disposition of the worKingmen to re gain away from the Homestead works smed significant. Forks Now In the Watchmen's Hands. In the advice of the leaders of tbe, ed-out men, tbe great ,works, ,ara ieft sfnyandwjysjlylrrthe hSn'dV of ine" XXChmeV, and.pt no time since " !. surrender of the Pinhertons has there been any necessity to protect the broperty of the Carnegie Company. ' The Carnegie interests are certainly in the bands of Carnegie's authorized agents here, and Hugh O'Donnell, the recognized leader of the men, said yesterday evening just before leaving for Pittsbnrg, and prob ably for Harrisburg to see the Governer, that his men would under no conditions touch violently any part of the company's property. "So long as our places are not endangered, just so long will the steel company's possessions here be jealously guarded by the locked-out men,'.' Mr. O'Donnell said. "Our interests are like - Mr. Carnegie's here; our homes, our fami lies are here aUo, and only the presence of unfriendly invaders will force us into a de fensive position." The Men Very Much Encouraged. Wednesday morning's victory has Bome what flushed and encouraged the men. They would now face, without the remotest evi dence of fear, any part of our standing army. Their presence, with a few revolvers and an abundance of clubs, repulsed, held back and subdued the 300 Pinkertons when they ap peared here with the daylight on Wednes day morning, but since then they have armed themselves, and they are now pre pared with all the implements of modem warfare. Besides their own weapons, such as one small brass cannon, rifles, Floberts, double barreled shotguns and pocket pistols, they took from the Pinkertons after surrender at least 200 repeating rifles and much of the ammunition found on board tbe barges after the unfortunate invaders had given them selves up. In addition to this guns have been sent there from Pittsburg and other points. Rone of the guns sent are new. They are till old and of different varieties. Considerable ammunition has been pur chased. "Where the Dynamite Was Secured. The dynamite used in Wednesday morn ing's bombardment was purchased in stores and shops at Homestead. The oil used in endeavoring to burn the Pinkertons and their barges belonged to the steel company, and was taken from their tanks in the workshops. Since tbe workmen strengthened their position by the capture of the repeating rifles and ammunition, enough for a pro tracted battle, they have been content, and have not endeavored to secure additional arms. The leaders, however, have received encouragement from several labor organiza tions throughout the country, and ,an un signed telegram received here yesterday morning, said: "Five thousand workingmen are ready with guns to help yon at Homestead." Many congratulatory telegrams from other pointB were received and they greatly encouraged the workmen. , It was reported yesterday morning that many of the Pinkertons perished, when the iron-clad barges were burned, after the sur render. This report could not be verified. The old hulks ot the barges were searched last evening, but nothing was found that would indicate the burning of the men. The nnburned portion of the barges were floated down the river, about a square, and are now safely moored to the Edna, a pretty little steamer, which has been used by the work ing people to patrol the rivfcr while guard- ins nsrr'nst invaders.

It Is conceded that a few of the Pinkertons es caped in the confusion of the surrender. The officer in charge of them got away, but it seems improbable that many oi them could escape the crowd that received them when they yielded to the superior lores of the workmen. It was claimed Wednesday night that Only the wounded were taken down the river in the steamer which brought them here, and nobody is able to make even an effort at accounting for the discrepancy in the count of the officers. The whole matter is clouded, but no one at Homestead had any information of the exact number of men who were on the barges. The men after their surrender refused or were unable io give any definite information. There are none of them at Homestead now. Hone of them escaped by way of the water, and nobody believes that more than & dozen of them could have gotten aWay by mingling with the excited and confused crowd, after they had been allowed to come ashore. Dr. Gladden said last night that the two still at Homestead will recover, but both are sericttslv wounded. NO PROPERTY INJURE!). The Carnegie Company's TVlltclir m-ri Now area or the Works They AM rarer . by lha Company The broken fences Repaired by the Sirlfc-xs. The mills of, the Carnegie Company, Lim ited, at Homestead, the" scene ot the awful battle Wednesday, rtere as siill as the grave yesterday. AVhere the cannon belched forth its deathly loads ot iron and steel Wednesday, yesterday there was not the least sign of. life save the watchmen who walked up and down the river front The Carnegie Steel Company, Limited, yesterday was in charge "of its works. The strikers, content with their overwhelming victory the day before, had left the com pany's property and all day not & striker set foot within the whitewashed walls. They knew that they had nothing to lose by staying- out, but they were careful no one went in. The Pemickey road, the one entrance to the battlefield, was guarded all day by the strikers, and not a soul was allowed to pass them. The other gates were all kept closed and inside of each was one of the company's policemen. There are seven of these guardians and their chief. It is very evi dent that they do not feel altogether safe. The Company Holds the Fort. Yesterday morning Assistant Superin tendent Wood issued an order forbidding all press representatives entrance to the grounds in the future. He said Secretary Lovejoy was the authorized press agent of the company. A Dispatch reporter yes terday afternoon tried to get id. A visit was first made to the main entrance npat'the offices. The chief of the watchmen guards this entrance. He kindly, but firmly, re fused admittance. He is a talcative old fellow, however. '"We are in control to day," said he, "but I haven't any idea how longit will last. lam constantly ex pecting another outbreak, and when it comes we will do as We did Wednes day, quietly withdraw. We are employed and paid by tbe company to de fend the plant, but not from a mob like had possession Wednesday, but our duties are more to keep out the worthless rabble. To them alone I look for any destruction of property that may oocur." The clerks in the offices at the mills came down to work every morning, but their work is not very arduous just now. They stay inr the building all the time, be ing afraid to venture out. It is even very seldom that one is seen at any of the tnany windows. Bather Mervons, bat Still There. The only way to view the spot where the battle was fought is by rowing down the river shore in a skiff. This was done. Two old men guard the battlefield, and to say they are nervous is.not an exaggeration. While the boat was yet quite a distance from shore the guardsmen commenced wav ing their clubs and shouting out orders about coming ashore. They are suspicious of everybody, and all requests for permis sion to land were refused. An. elegant view of the improvised fort and different barricades is obtained from the river. The strongholds are all standing yet just as they wero whsn the victors left them. The only other very noticeable reminder oi the battle is the smokestacks along the hank Where the model barges lav. The barges are gone. The burned hulls have been floated down to McCIure street, where the strikers' steamer is moored, and are being held as trophies of war. Here and there in the steep embankment can be seen little gullevs made by .the oil which was intended to destroy the barges. There is a strong disposition in Home stead to protect tbe works. This was mani fested in Wednesday's battle. So success fully was this managed that the company lost nothing so far as its property Was con cerned. Some of the striken my they would be glad it the militia were brought to Homestead to guard the plant. Their opinion is not a prevail ing one, however.

Coroner McDowell has commenced the preliminary vork of his inquisition which is to take place as Soon as peace can be sufficiently restored at Homestead to enable him to arrive at the facts that led to the sacrifice of the lives of the men who died in the Homestead engagement Wednesday corning. He is determined that no effort shall be lost sight of that may in any way lead to the detection of anyone that may lurnlsh evidence leading to the cause of the trouble. The District Attorney has beeni con sulted concerning the most effective method of conduoting the inquests, and when the PINKERTON MEN RUNNING THE GAUNTLET. time arrlveslor taking evidence he will be present to assist, "A jury has already been drawn, and the Coroner says he has en deavored to exercise special care that lrieh of unquestioned honesty shall be secured.

The number dead reported to theCoroner up to. 5 o'clock yesterday evening is eight It was reported, however, that several others were killed or had died since the battle, but eight are all that have been officially reported. Of these reported there are but two Chat were Pinkerton men, the rest having been residents of Homestead. The correct list of the dead reported is as follows: J. W.

OLD-FASHIONED GUNS. The Weapons Osed by the Men Were Small Fowling: Pieces and Rifles The Cannons Were Used for Parades and Celebra tions. An all-important question, and one which has been discussed rather freely without so lution being reached, is, where did the workmen obtain their cannon, arms, ammu nition and dynamite. The two cannons used in the Wednesday engagement and operated from tbenorthbank of the Monon gahela river are -three pound brass guns of an ancient type, and ate familiarly known as Napoleon pieces.. They are mounted UDon a cumbersome carriage of wood with a , trail attached, and in all are abont 5 feet in length, xne guns are loaaea at tne breech and are worked with the old style primer and cord. It is stated they have been in the town for a number of years, and were heretofore utilized only during parades and upon national holidays. The arms and ammunition in possession of the steel and iron workers during the fight were lso an old feature Of the town. They consisted mainly of shotguns and small caliber rifles, there being but a few good pieces in tbe whole outfit. These be longed to the sportsmen of the borough, and have been used only for hunting small game, shooting at glass balls and target firactice. It was reported yesterday morn ng tbat the ammunition of the workmen at Homestead had been greatly rednced in the engagement with the Pinkerton men, hut this is denied by everyone. They say that Homestead was never better fixed with rifles ahd ammunition than they are at the present time. Before firing the barges yes terday it II said that the workmen rescued three boxes ( containing 1 210 new 10-shot Winchester repeating rifles with many rounds of ammunition for each weapon. Where tbe dynamite was obtained that was used so freely during the battle? cannot be learned from any reliable source. It is re ported by some that quantities of it, are to M nod in this district, while others say it was brought from Pittsburg in wagons or other conveyances. That the weapons used in the War by the workmen consisted of only shot sans and small caliber rifles is very Probably true, as it is stated if the men had been as well supplied as they are now great damage .Would have been done both to life aid property.

They Distribute Circulars That Stir Op the Workmen Threat! to kill Them ftlade by the Crowd Locked Op for Eafe Keeping Ontll the Heating. Quite astir was Created this morning among the workmen assembled at the head quarters of the Amalgamated Association when One of the pickets announced that two Anarchists had arrived on the last train from Pittsburg and wero how dlstrlb- utlng a bloodthirsty circular along the Btreets which advocated the use of dynamite in settling the present labor trouble, and invited th&meh to become Anarchists. Upon hearing the full circumstances of the case, the workmen proposed that a committee be appointed to go out and look up the two advocates of anarchism. Before any such arrangements conld be completed, however, ihe two disciples of the equality of man, meeting with no opposition on the streets, became emboldened and walked into the headquarters. ' Boldly they marched to the center of the room and began banding their circulars around. Here thev met with their first nn- r.JaeilSnvibe papers were torn up Into . t . - "-', .small pieces and thrown into their faces. They Conld n't Explain Their Position. Workmen clrpled around them and as sumed threatening attitudes. Becoming frightened at this state of affairs the two Anarchists made a break and ran toward the stairway, but here they were inter cepted. They tried to explain their posi tion, but became confused and told a rambling story, which was nothing but a series of contradictions. Finally the workmen, concluding they had done no serious barm, decided to let them go on condition that they promise to return im mediately to the city. This they gladly assented toand a force of men accompanied them down the stairway to see that they carried out'their promise. When they reached the street it was whispered that the men were two of Herr Most s disciples and that they had donea great deal of injury to the causes of the workingmen throughout the iron And steel mill districts. It was said they had been run out of McKeesport and they had been warned not to hold any meetings in Alle gheny. When this was learned by the more hot headed df the men cries rang out "Give it to them,""Arrest them," ''Kill them,"etc.t . - By this time they were thoroughly fright ened and shaking as if they had the ague. They were hurried down the street, but not to the railroad depot. Taken to Ihe Jail for Beeps. They were taken to the station house. Here the apparent spokesman of the two men gave his name as John Powers. He said he had done no harm. "I did not come here to give out circu lars," he said. "I found the circulars on the street, and thinking they belonged to the strikers gave them 'out to everyone I met. " Notwithstanding this lucid explana tion he was placed in a cell. The man that accompanied him was too badly frightened to speak and his nameconld'hot be learned. They will be given a hearing this morning The men state that they can ficht all their battlfiB without any advice from Anarchists, and that they Will not tolerate visitors of this character.. The i circular begins by saying that "re sistance to tyrants is obedience to God," and continues in about a thousand words to describe how tyranny was practiced by the Carnegie firm. Alter a rambling statement the writer concludes by advising all the workmen to stay in the mills that of right belong to ',Kem, The closing words are: "Brother become Anarchists." A 'MIDNIGHT ALARM, .Homestead i-ouied by the News That More ,Plnkoxtons Were-Comlns;. Just at mldiyght a general alarm was sounded from be steam whistle ot the Homestead Electric Light Works. It was declared that another body of Pinkertons was lev be thrown into the Carnegie works, buft it was not known whether they were cowing by rail or river. Men, women and children bouned out of every house. The' men were all armed, sflme with the rifles captured front te Pinkertons. Three thousand men were reldr to receive the Invaders, and scouts werevhrown out to eive warning the moment iby of them nnneared. A diligent search was made f n this city at the depots, along the wharVes and at Lock No. 1, but up to 3 A. m. no sign of the expected arrivals could be found.

LIST Oi1 THE HURT IX ALL THE WARDS The sad results Of the strife at Home Stead are seen at the hospitals, where men lie wounded and suffering. Twenty-eight of the unfortunate Pinkertons are now at the West Penn Hospital, and a sadder lot of patients has seldom been seen. There are men with broken arms and disjointed ankles; Others with broken noses and cut faces, and many with bruised heads and injured backs, presenting altogether, as they lie in their various wards, a pitiful picture of human misery. As soon as it was known that the Pinker ton men had surrendered at Homestead Superintendent Cowen, of the West Penn Hospital, sent Surgeons Lewln and Walker, accompanied by Clerk Woodward, to the scene of disaster to care for the disabled. Arriving at Homestead, they found many of the Pinkerton men badly in need of medical attendance, and after ministering to their wants so far as possible, they brought those who were most badly injured to the West Penn Hospital. Their names follow: The Disabled at the Hospital. EDWARD McGUPF, Philadelphia, shot in leg- . FRED PRIMER, Philadelphia, scalp wound and Internal injuries. E. A.

There have been no new arrivals at the other hospitals since those reported yester day. Captain Fred W. Hide, David Lester, Bussel Wells and J. T. Hoffman, of the Pinkertons, are still at the Homeopathic Hospifal and are doing welL George W. Butter, a mill worker of Homestead, is alto there and Js in a fair way to recover. J. T. McCurry. who was a watchman on the Little Bill and who was wounded in the groin, is at the Allegheny Hospital and is considered out of danger. Joe Zsldo, a Hungarian and a striker, who was shot in the thigh, is at the South Bide Hospital. Miles Laughlin, a striker of Homestead, is at the Mercy Hospital. This makes a total of 30 disabled men now in the hospitals Some of the Pinker tons feel very bitter to,ard the Homestead Strikers for abusing them after the surren der, while others make but little com plaint. One man who was interviewed and who requested that his name be withheld from publication, said: "About i o'clock, when we hod given np all' hooe, a Bteamer came down the river- and we implored its captain to take as down the river, but he refused and went on, little caring, apparently, whether we lost oUr lives or not After this there was but one hope, and that, was in surrendering to the mnh ' "How long have you been with the Pink ertons?" was asked. , "About three days. I live in Philadel phia and was out of work; so when they advertised for men I offered my service, not knowing where I was going or lor what purpose. Ah Experience Not to Be Forgotten. "I have had an experience never to be forgotten and never to be repeated. It was the first naval battle that I was ever in, and I want it to be the last." "It has been reported that the Pinkerton men receive ?5 per day. Is that so?" asked the reporter. "We receive f 15 a week sometimes more when the job is short 'and the work danger ous. I went to Homestead for 15 a week, but would not go back for $15,000 a minute. " The man who lay upon the next bed was a toreiguer bv birth. He had his eyes blacked, his jaw broken, his nose broken and a rib fractured. He said: "I received all these bruises after we sur rendered. I wish vi e had staid in the boat. We might as well have been shot to death as clubbed into cripples and have our faces mashed." John Smith, of Philadelphia, who bad been shot iu the left arm, said that he was a watchman, meaning a regular jfinKeriou emolove. "I hare been in tbe service.a good while," he continued, "but I neyer saw such de termined, blood-thirstv people as those of Homestead. This is the first time that the Pinkerton men ever tailed in on under taking, but I guess they haven't had much experience in the marine business. There are good marksmen at Homestead, Every time a man passed an opening in the board the rifle balls came splashing through like hail, and often in time to catch the man, as my arm will show." One man made inquiry in regard to ther Pinkerton men who were shipped away, and nekoil vchn rvtlirl their exneiisei He said hn was out of money, and did not know how he would get home unless some one should assist him. The reporter sug gested that iis employers ought to take care of him, when he replied: "Yes; but I snppose monopolies and their agents have no further use for a man when he is crippled and of no.uae to theni' , GREENLAND'S PLAIN TALK.

''The whole question with Governor Pat tison and the authorities now isthis: Have Carnegie & Co; possession of their works? If they have possession then the Gov ernor has nothing to do with it. If, the men have possession end refuse to vacate, then the authorities will sayi 'Gentlemen, you must surrender this property to its rightful owners.' "- At this point General Greenland was in formed that Carnegie & Co. had possession, and he continued: Soldiers Will Not Do Pdllce Dnty. "That ought to settle the matter. The National Guard'of Pennsylvania was not or ganized 'and does not exist simply to per forin police duty. To compel it to do such work four or five weeks every year would demoralize it. There is no danger that it will be called out at present, and the Governor is not coming to Pittsburg or Homestead. These people at Homestead are not the kind that ran .rampant in the coke region a little over a year ago when the troops were called out. Over 60 per cent ot the Homestead workers ore intelli gent Americans who own their own homes and are good citizens except under great provocation. In the coke region 70 odd per cent of the workers were ignorant foreigners, and the troops were not sent among them until the I Sheriff of the county had made a strenuous 1 FUNERAL PEOCESSION AT nOMESTEAD. effort to preserve the peace, and had been unsuccessful. He deputized the members of the militia companies, to which I am opposed, but I presume a sheriff might com pel them to serve, until they should be i called "upon by the Governor. No Politics, Bat Prlnelp-e. "Yon can say once and for all time that politics does not enter into the considera tion of this-question by the Governor. He does not believe it is bevond tbe control of the Sheriff of Allegheny county. He believes that official has yet to - make a determined effort to put a stop to the trouble, and he refuses to prostitute the National Guard by having it do police duty. If it is called upon it will be used only to queU open dtstnr ban cesandnotto keep men in or out of the works. "Tbe Governor has received as many,or,I believe, more messages, from Allegheny county stating that the Sheriff has not yet exerted his full power, and that the militia is not needed, than he has asked for the militia. It is a notable fact tbat not a Judge of the county has sent a message either for or ocainst calling out tbe National Guard. This is a big county with a population of over half a million neople, and it will bC a curious thing if it cannot handle a disturbance like the prevent It has not become a riot like that of '77." The Pinkerton Have Had Enoneh. "What do you think of the fight with the Pinkertons?" "It was a well planned raid, but like many another tt ell planned scheme it fail ed to connect It Mr. Frick Had succeeded in rushing those men into the works he would have been lauded as showing great generalship in completely outgeneraling the workers, but as it turned out the work ers bagged Mr, Frick." "Are you opposed to the employment of Pinkerton men?" "Well, I don't believe they will care about going back to Homestead retf soon. They have been taught a lesson they are not likely to forget for some time." "D'o you intend to Visit Homestead?" "I rnav go up to-morrow afternoon. My visit to 'Pittsburg is strictly on private business and. has n6 connection whatever with the present trouble. I'was in Harris burg all ot last week as I be lieved there might be some trouble and wanted to be near headquarters. Sat urday I came to Tittsburg and looked over the ground. This talk about Philadelphia troops being likely to be ordered out is all nonsense. There are surely enough good men in the Second Brigade, composed of Western reuiments, to put down any out break that would occur. V until the Sh-rifl to Act "Wait till tbe Sheriff has exerted himself and then there will be plenty of time to talk about troops. It 'might have been a good plan if he had taken tbe offer of the locked-out men to furnish deputies from among their number to guard tbe works. It looks as though his action on the day before the arrival of the Pinkertons was only a ruse to cover the advance of 'the Pinkertons on Carnegie's works.

It was a solemn day of funeral rites, of tears and of lamenta tions. IhrongS of Bad-faced men and women turned out to pay a lost tribute to the memory of men who but four and twen ty hours before were in the full flush of life, and' who fell victims of the death dealings of the Pinkertons. It was a strangely silent crowd these men and women made, as totally unlike that of the previous day as a June morning is to a December night The men were fresh-shaven and carefnlly groomed; the women were attired in their best garments and subdued in manner. Moans and sobs replaced the groans of the preceding day and order reigned where but a few hours before disorder had been ram- paut For the first time since that terrible battle on the river front the people seemed to realize the awful ordeal through which they had passed. The awful solemnity of death had soothed them, and for the time being, universal sor row drove from their minds all thoughts of "else. It was difficult to believe that the tear-stained faces gathered about the coffins of John E.

At 1:45 o'clock in the afternoon the somber wagon of Undertaker Gillen, to which was harnessed a sleek white horse, drew up before a vine-clad cottage, which fronts on Eighth avenue near McCIure street A solemn faced man in black, sat on the driver's seat He jumped to the pavement, and making his way over the narrow path of emerald turf, mounted the stoop of the cottage. The door was open and the man in black entered. The small cluster of men and women gathered on the sidewalk, say him lay a wreath of fragrant white roses on the lid of ot the cloth-covered coffin which stood on its two wooden supporters at the end of the pasa;eway. Then tbee envious eyes watched him as he spoke a few words to a white-faced woman who stood at the head of the coffin. A moment later the under taker's assistant came out of the cottase, climbed into his wagon and drove away. Then from up the narrow roadway rose a cloud of yellow dust and as it slowly cleared away a hearse decked with plumes and drawn by a team of black horses was seen.

At this juncture strains of music floated np the street, and a moment later a band of blue-coated musicians drew near to the solemn harmonies of the Dead March in ''Saul," the hearse and its escort moved slowly down the avenne.
