Among the cases decided by the Su

that of C. F. Ackerman, of the Guarantee

against State Insurance Commissioner
Kinder. It is a motion for mandamus
to compel the commissioner to license
this company to do business in Ohio.
He refused to do so, because he thought
tho company did not meet the require'
ments of Ohio's laws. It is not an in
corporation but an association of 100
persons, each paving in $1,000 for caDi-
tal and obligating himself to par 1-100 1
part ot tne losses oi the company and to
accept the 1-100 part of the profits. The
court sustained the commissioner in this

An old story is being resurrected
ftttinst a usually quiet but somewhat ex
citable resident of the suburbs. It is al
leged that tliogentlemiu in question dis
covered that a lire had been started in
the attio of his house through the heat of
one of the chimneys. "With rare presence
of mind he rushed down stairs and seized
n milk-pitclier from the kitchen table,
rushed out to the cistern, threw the milk
out of the pitcher, pumped soma water
into it, and rushed upstairs, only to find
that his wife had seized a large pitcher
of water from one of the b.-droomsin the
upper story, and extinguished the incipi
ent conflagration. As there were four
large ewers of water on the two upper
Etnrie, the progress of meutal reasoning
which induced the excited resident to
make such a ferocious onslaught on the
milk-pitclier would be extremely inter
esting to trace, if such a thing were pos
sible. lie should have had the presence of
mind possessed by another property
owner, who discovered that a spark from
a neighboring conflagration had lit upon
the slightly slanting roof of his house,
and had set Are to the shingles. All the
buckets, tubs and pitchers had gone for
use in the big fire, and there was no one
to send over to bring them back. Bat
the owner of the house, even in that mo
ment of peril, kept cool-headed. Ha
rushed to the pond, which stood by the
house, and deliberately sat down in -the
water. To ra. e upstairsaud out upon the
roof was the work of a moment, and
then he "sat on" the tire, in more sense
than oue! He saved the house.

PiTTSBDBO. July 6. -Blood baa flowed
at last no a reauu 01 the labor troubles
at the Homestead Iron works. A fierce
battle took place at 4:30 a. m. between
the Pinkerton detectives and the locked
out men, and it is now reported twelve
were shot; some of them probably
fatally. Five Pinkerton men are said
to be among the dead. At2a.rn.it
was reported that a steam boat had left
Pittsburg for Homestead with a large
force of Pinkerton detectives on board,
and it was learned later that 300 of
these detectives had arrived at an early
hour from the east. They had quietly
marched to the barges, and started for
Tho news created the wildest excite
ment among the amalgamated men who
were wired to be on the watch and
when the tug. Little Bill, teeming the
barges arrived at Homestead, there waa
a crowd of about 5,000 men awaiting
them. The Pinkertons at once began
to land, but were mot with firm resist
ance, and a fight began almost immedi
ately. Tho Pinkertons opened fire and.
two workmen lell at the first volley.
The comrades ot the latter were at first
dazed and many retreated hastily up
the bank toward the trestle leading to
the .Pemicky" railroad bridge. About
three hundred men stood their ground,
however, and began firing with revol
vers at the advancing Pinkertons.
They did but little damage appar-
Earentiy ana were driven bacK slowly
y the fire of Winchesters with which
the Pinkertons were armed. Martin
Merry, a heater in one of the mills, and
a Hungarian who stood close beside him
were the first to fall. The retreating
crowd were aroused to action by tho
sight and rushed with a cheer to their
wounded comrades and bore their bod
ies to a place of safety where they were
examined by a doctor and pronounced
probably fatally injured. Five others
were wounded, two very seriously, but
tliey were quicKly removed by Inends
and" their names are unknown. At pres
ent a report says inat lour nnicertons
were wounded by the return fire of the
men, one or two very seriously.
The Pinkertons did not succeed in
landing and at 7 o'clock were still con
cealed on the barges, which were an
chored about twenty-five yards out from
the bank. Their captain was among
those wounded, and one report says ha
has since died from his injuries. No
one is allowed to board their boats and
the exact condition of affairs there can
not be definitely stated. The most re
liable reports say that five Pinkerton
men are dead.
The foreman of the mill was killed and
about ten men injured. The names as
iar as obtained are : Wm. Frey, proba
bly fatal; Andrew Sourler, seriously
wounded ; Michael Murray, dangerously
hurt; John Kane, Harry Hughes
and two unknown men were badly hurt
The strikers are now out in search of
arms and ammunition to resist the land
ing of the Pinkertons. They say they
will bold their ground to the last, and
not a Pinkerton man shall enter the
mills. All is wdd excitement in the
expectancy of another attempt to land
irom tne Darges, wuen learlul carnage is
almost inevitable, as both sides will be
more ready to ofler a stubborn fight
than on the first occasion. The strikers
have assaulted tho fence surrounding
the works and torn down about 100 feet
of it
The sheriff is quoted as saying that he
regards the situation as very critical,
and that he will appeal to the governor.
A second attempt of the Pinkertons
to land at Homestead was prevented by
the strikers, who are now in full posses
sion of the bank and have three cannon
to aid maintaining in their position. Up
to 9:30 the fight had not been renewed.
It is reported the strikers will pour oil
into the river and set it on fire so as to
drive the Pinkertons from their anchor
age. One report says that in the two
fights eleven were killed, including
even Pinkertons and from twenty to
twenty-live were wounded on both sides,
some latally:
When tho Pinkertons attempted
their second ianding, the officer in com
mand shouted to tho crowds on shore

striker seemed as if he wanted a parti
cular man omong the Pinkertons.
After considerable parly some one sug
gested that the guards be marched to
the big skoting rink and there tried
for murder. Many of the captors would
not listen to this. Some wanted to take
the scared Pinkertons and
Cooler heads, however, prevailed and
uiemarcn to tuo rinK began.
"The Pinkertons were seared half to
death as the looks of the strikers were
not calculated to inspire them with any
hopes of mercy. Many of them quaked
with fear, and had to be sunported to
keep from falling to the ground. Sev
eral thousand people crowded around
them, on all sides, and demanded re
venge for the killing of the strikers
during the day. In tfie crowds were
Who seemed worse than the men. They
crowded around and tore the olotbeg
trom the backs of the guards. The lat
ter had their Pinkerton uniforms on
over their citizens clothes and these
were pulled off and thrown into the
river. AH thoir fire-arms were taken
from them, and after considerable fight
ing, the leaders forced a passage through
the crowd. Then the scenes really be
gan. The poor guards, with most of
their clothes torn from them wero com
pelled to march through die town to
thermic On both sides of them stood
lines ot strikers and their friends,
as they passed. As the men passed
through the gauntlet they were kicked
and cufled on all sides. Their captors
tried to protect them but it was a phy
sical impossibility. They might as well
have tried to stop a fusilade of bullets.
Women and girls ran out of the two
lines, and with sticks and clubs beat thii
poor wretches. One woman had a
stocking filled with iron, and she struck
one of the Pinkerton men over the
head with it I do not believe that any
ot them escaped without having
Tho leaders of the strikers could not
keep the people away trom the prison
ers. Scenes that almost beggar discrip
tion were enacted all the way to tho
rink. It was the general supposition
that the men would be given a speedy
trial and convicted by a Judge Lynch
While the men were beini? formed in
line for the march to the rink part of
the strikers boarded the boats. Thev
ransacked everything and secured
rifles. The men just took from the
boats what they thought was of value
and then burned the barges. In one
boat was found everything in the way
of edibles. There was enough provisions
to last a regiment a week. The Win
chesters were divided up among the
men and many of the residents are now
the possessors of first-class rifles. It did
not take the barges long to burn after
they were fired. Scores of shots were
poured into the boats by the strikers, as
the flames were licking up everything.
There was little pity expressed for the
captured guards.
How the Strikers Foneht.
ITovestead, July 7. Hugh O'Donnell
took'a representative ot the press into
the yards of the steel works and es
corted him around and among the work
men who were ghing battle to the two
barge loads of Pinkertons. The men
who were doing the shooting kept them
selves concealed and every few minutes
peered carefully out and tired at what
ever they thought worrh shooting. It
is believed that they killed or badly
wounded four or live men from 10
o'clock until about 1 1, which was tho
time, that the third fusilade of the day
was thickest About 500 men congre
gated in knots about the works, or
upon tho railroad overlooking the river.
and exposed themselves to fire from
the Pinkertons in the barges with the
utmost recklessness.
from the barges would strike one of the
riflemen and he would have to be helped
out of tho works. Stretchers were
brought into play two or three times
during the morning and the dead wagon
of an undertaker was driven almost to
the river bank after the only man who
had up to that hour been shot dead
since the first attack on the Pinkertons.
The tug boat -'Little Bill" came in for
an equal share of the strikers fire
with the Pinkerton barge, and twice,
as men upon her were seen to drop, the
crowds on the railroad sent up a mighty
cheer. The boat flew the American
tlae and the strikers ancer seemed to be
augmented by sight ol it, they thinking
that a boat which came on the mission
of bringing men to make war upon
them had no right to display that em
blem. Several efforts were made to flood the
river where tho tug and tho barges lay,
with burning oil, but without success.

Pinkerton Don't Believe If.
CnicAGo, July 6. Wm. Pinkerton
said that he had a telegram saying that
absolutely none of his men were killed
and not more than two wounded. He
said that they are private watchmen
who are unarmed and unprepared for
an attack.
rinkerton Mea Picked Off ny Sharp
Shooters. PrrrsBmjo, July 6. A number of
Pinkertons were drowned when the
barge was fired. The Pinkertons and
strikers opened up fire again and are
picking each other off one by one.
At 3 o'clock eighteen bodies ha
been taken out of the part of the Home
stead mills extending over the old poor
farm. Nine are dead. Two were Pin
kertons. A Pinkerton on a barge has
just been shot dead.
The sheriff appealed again to the gov
ernor for troops. The men have se
cured another cannon and three ot
them are now bombarding the barge.
The other workmen are trying to blow
up tho barges with dynamite cartridges.
Another Pinkerton has just been shot

Governor Paulson.
Harrisburo, Pa., July 7. Governor
Pattison is not from information given
from Pittsburg, satisfied that Sheriff
McCleary has done his lull duty in call
ing to nis assistance deputies to pre
serve peace and has sent the following
to him.
"How many deputies have you sworn
in and what measures have you taken
to enforce order and protect property?"
The above telegram was sent altor a
protracted consultation between the
governor, secretary of commonwealth,
and attorney general The governor
has received a dispatch from a member
ot his start placme the number of dead
at eight, and representing the situation
as exceedim-lv ccrce.
"Victory! we have them now," and like '
cries rungout Then Hugh O'Donnell
accompanied by two or three of the old'
ndviory committee, ran down the steep
lank to receive the message or peace.
The spokesman of the Pinkertons an
nounced that they would surrender orr
condition that they be protected from'
thoviolence-orthemob. Alter a short
parley this was agreed to, though a mul
titude of enraged people were
of the men who killed their comrade.
As soon as the committee had arranged
the preliminaries a hundred or more
from the shore climbed upon the boat
A reporter went into the lrail craft and
there found one, dead and eleven

and th rifles were then taken
irom an, and became the property of
we man who took the gun. Then
can a looting of the boat The uni
forms the guards had intended to wear
were either thrown in the river or givea
to the Hungarians. Everything ot the
slightest value that was portable waa
carried away by the crowd. When tho
boats had been looted the march of the
captured crew began. Down the gang
plank, onj by one. they came, and that
they might be distinguished from the
men on the bank, so that none would
get away, they were forced to walk with
uncovered head.
The workers finally laaded their cap
tives in the large skating rink and opera
house where lhey were kpt under
heavy guard. The leaders then sent
word to Sheriff McCleary to come is
person and take are cf the Pinkertons.
Mieriff McCleary is now on the scene.
It is reported thata huge mob surrounds

Thlrtv-EIelit Killed.
PiTTSBORo, July 7. The report that
barges containing Pinkertons were com
ing down the river was true. The
steamer, "Little Bill" attempted to re
sist them but was driven oil The pilot
was killed. The fight continues; many
are killed and wounded. The Pinker
tons displayed a flag of truce three
times only to have it shot away. The
strikers aro evidently determined not
to let them get awoy. The strikers are
transferrins their cannon from the north
to the south side to get closer to the
barges. A large military force will be
required to quell the riot Twenty-five
are killed and a great many wounded.
One report says thirty-eight aro killed
Governor Pattison has gono to the scene
of the riot ana it is said has ordered
out a brigade of state troops. -,
Sheriff McCleary has gone up the
river with fifty deputies.
Bnrnn.g es.
Pittsbcro, July 7. The attempt to
burn barges proved a failure because a
strong current changed the course of
the blazing ma3s and it drifted past the
enemy without doing any harm. One
of the causes lor the transfer of the bat
tery from the opposite shore to the
company yard was the fact that David
Davis, an association man,was beheaded
by a cannon ball which whistled harm
lessly over the barge and landed among
a cluster of workmen. Davii was in
stantly killed and several of his com
rades were burned and bruised.
The steamer that assisted in towing
the barges to Homestead has arrived in
this city. Captain Rogers was very in
dignant at the action ot the strikers,
which he termed 'digraceful and a blot
on humanity." He said, "I never saw
such coivaidly attacks as those strikers
made. They had a fortification of pig
iron and the minute the boat arrived
there they commenced firing. Not a

Pinkerton men. To save themselves
from death in fire they would have had
to face tbe reflex ,of the mob and the

Senator Vorhees assailed the Republi
