n highly disorderly expression and he
warned Mr Redmond not to repeat It

Why dont ou keep order

ed quiit in the House during the rest of
the session
Mr Redmond -wanted to raise a point
of order but the Speaker refused to lis
ten to him and as the offender would not
stop the Speaker named him which the
rules provide is tantamount to suspen
sion although a motion to suspend the
member must be made immediately after
the naming
When the motion was made the Irish
members amid the noise of cheers and
counter cheers tried to raise a discus
sion contending that the method of nam
ing was not in accordant with the pro
per procedure and Mr Redmond who
was sitting with his hat or began to ev
plaln that he had not interded to dlsobej
the Speaker The latter however cut
him short and the House decided to sus

ed him to leave the House This request
called forth derisive laughter and cheers
from the Nationalists Mr O Brien made
no movement to leave and the Speaker
asked

sponded Most decidedly
The Speaker then named him and he
was suspended by a ote of 307 to 55
The debate was then clotured and the

Daily Mall had been excluded from the
list of newspapers which received official
war despatches because of Its reports In
regard to the shooting of British wounded
by the Boers after tht Vlakfonteln light
Mr Brodrick added that the reason for

uments which both the Times and an
other journal for patriotic reasons had
refused to print

TO END THE STRIKE TODAY
A Settlement of the Steel Trust
DiliicuIticoLiolmlile
TerniM on A Iileh the Mnurnnte Will
Enter Into an Inn emeu t With the
Aasocintion VII the 11111s to He
Opefntod Open In the Future
PITTSBURG July 20 Unless the rank
and file of the Amalgamated Association
has acquired the idea that the steel strike
Is to be settled on terms laid down by the
association the strike will be declared
oft tomorrow The associations officers
know tbey have lest the game and will
close at the manufacturers terms but
some fear was expressed that the work
ers will object to a cessation of the strike
unless they clear gain b the settle
ment
For this feeling Shaffer is responsible
as he had buoed up the hopes of the
members of his organization by his pre
dictions of a speed and triumphant
strike settlement There is no serious be
lief however that the disappointment
which the rank and flic will feel when the
terms of the settlement are made known
will result In a general refusal to ac
cept them but it Is the belief that Presi
dent Slnffer will hear something said
which will not be to his liking
Shaffer and some members of tho
executive board of the Amilgamated As
sociation met tod i In private session
which as was afterward stated consid
ered the terms under which the strike
will -be termimtcd 11 tomorrow morn
ing all the vice presidents and trustees
who make up the executive board will be
In Pittsburg They will hold a session
at 10 a m ami at 1 p in the will meet
the manufacturers who will be represent
fd bv Warner Arms Veri Preston Per
cifcr F Smith conferees at the last Joint
meeting and a few others
These are the terms of the settlement
The Amalgamated Association must drop
the contention that each company must
sign for the non union mills it controls
all mills are to be open mills In the full
est sense of the terms which means that
the association must not object to union
men working In non union mills and must
grant the compapy the right to place non
union men In union mills and keep them
there The Amalgamated Association Is
to have the right to organize the men In
nnj mill union or non union
The strike is directed against three com
panies the American Tin Pi ite Company
the American Sheet Steel Company and
the American Steel Hoop Company The
Steel Hoop Compan will sign the Amal
gamated scale for the Painter Clarke
Lindsa McCutcheon and Monessen Steel
Hoop plants The first three are at Pitts
burg the fourth Is in Monessen The
American Sheet Steel Company will sign
the Amilgnmated scale for the W De
wees Wood plant In McICeesport Wheth
er the Wellsville Sheet Steel plant will be
under the Amalgamated scale or a special
scale will be decided by the conference
The American Tin Plate Company has
but one non union mill the tin mill at
Monessen The company will sign a spe
cial scale Just as It offered to do at the
conference that ended In the declaration
of a strike
Anabsls of these terms shows that the
trust has gained a ictory The conten
tion that each company must sign the
Amalgamated scale for Its non union mills
caused the strike Now it is dropped
There will be no more union mills for all
mills are to be open and the union and
non union men will work side by side
It Is true that the association gains
three hoop mills In Pittsburg and one in
Monessen but It demonstrated at the
beginning of the strike that It controlled
those mills and the United States Steel
Corporation finds compensation In this
loss by not being obliged to give up the
Old Meadow Scottdale and Saltsburg
mills which it offered to hand over to
the association The association gains
apparently in being allowed to organize
all the mills
Of course the signatures to the agree
ment have not been afilred and there Is
alwajs a possibility that the conference
will fall of its mission Members of the
executive board may object to abandon
ing the contention that each company
must sign for all its mills Even if they
flnilly recede from that position they
may object to the permission accorded
tho companies to place non union mill
men In union mills Shaffer however
assured J P Morgan and C M Schwab
that there was small likelihood of a dis
agreement and so it Is believed that to
morrows meeting will result In the ter
mination of the strike
STRIKE LEADERS ARRESTED
V Huh on the AmnlKumntcd Camp

McKEESPORT Pa July 29 Deput
sheriffs from Greensburg Coal and Iron
police from the National Tin Plate
Works In Monesen and Monessen police
raided the Amalgamated headquarters at
a fishing camp at Lock No 1 this after
noon and arrested David Henderson
President of the Monessen lodge George
Cooley and August Berg They are
charged with selling liquor without li
cense and on Sunday Timely warning
enabled a large number of the members
of the fishing camp and the lodge to es
cape the officers These three were cap
tured while rushing through the bushes
surrounding the camp In an effort to es
cape
A week ago Deputy Sheriffs R B Alt
man and George Nefi of Westmoreland
County were sent for by Mr Donner
manager of the Jlonessen tin mill and
requested to go to the camp and secure
evidence igalnst the parties there and
arrest them It was Intended to make
the arrts on Sunday In the hope of
catching a crowd but the plans
miscarried
The deputies went to the camp several
das ago and have been stopping there
with the strikers who organized the
camp and w rc uslrg It for mlssionar
work among tl e men In the Monessen tin
mill The camp was arnnged at Lock
No 4 when the strike began It Is here
that officers from the Amilgamated head
quarters in Pittsburg go over Sunday
nnd talk unionism to the men In the
Monessen mill who refuse to strike
This aft moon the deputy sheriffs ac
companied by D G Cooper Chief of
Police of Monessen David Madison Chief
of the Coal and iron Tollce In the tin
mill and James Ialrd a Coal and Iron
policeman started for the camp Several
persons saw them going and the com
pany was warned The crowd in the
ramp ImmedUlely started for the bushes
The three prisoners ran into the arms of
the officers as they rushed out The of
ficers drew their revolvers and stoppe d
them They vwre taken to Monessen and

Beginning July 8 all traina Kridaji and Sat
urdays pochI to return until following Tuesday
to Atlantic City Capo May Sea Isle City and
Ocean City 4 for the round trip
liquor without license and on Sunday
The plan was to charge a fee of a dollar
for membership which entitled the mem
ber to all the beer he wanted for a dav
and his dinner Sunday was the big day
and last Sunday 75 was taken In
Donner says the camp Is a nuisance
He claims the Amalgamated officials are
responsible and he is going to make an
information against one or more of the
national officers of the association He
says they cntlco the men from his mill
to the camp on Sunday set them drunk
and send them home entirely unfit for
work n the mill next day He sas he
has discharged forty men this week and
will discharge forty more if necessary
The strikers he sas have stated that
he discharged the men for attending un
ion me tings at the camp He is angry
about this and proposes to fight to a fin
ish
In the raid on the camp some of tho
lodge archives were captureel which con
tained some information of value to the
arresting officers and to Mr Donner
These papers nnd books were seized by
tho officers and demanded by tho pris
oners
At the office of the Justice the prisoners
renewed their demand for the books nnd
papers During the hearing a large crowd
had gathered most of them friends of
the prisoners A flght stnrted for the pos
session of the books Officers beat oft
the mob and finally were compelled to
draw their revolvers before they were able
to quell the crowd
As soon as the tumult subsided they
took their prisoners across the river and
started with them for the county Jail at
Greensburg Monessen is wllcfty excited
tonight over the arrests and friends of
the pri orTs are making threats The
prisoners are of the most prominent men
among the strikers and have hosts of
friends In the town
Donner does not anticipate any trouble
from them however and declares that
he will carry the prosecution to a finish
The Monessen mill is running In full and
there seems no lack of help nor any Im
mediate prospects of the men striking
In McKeesport the strikers are quietly
awaiting the result of the expected con
ference between the wage committee of
the American Sheet Steel Company and
the AmalgamatedAssociatlon The re
port that the tin plate mill here had start
ed up with lmporttji help proved to be en
tirely unfounded iThe mill could not be
started for a week or more as extensive
repairs are in progress

bled around the covered platform that
had been erected on the vacant ground
In the north part of the town Long be
fore 9 oclock the entire population of El
Reno amounting today to probably 13000
or 20000 people had gathered in the vicin

GATHERING ABOUT KlAURIN
Frlendn of the Ilenulillcnii Movement
Welcome His KxihiIhIoii
CHARLESTON S C July 29 Reports
whlch have been received here in the last
few das by local managers of Senator
McLaurlns White Republican campaign
indicate that the McLaurlns position has
been greatly strengthened by the action
of the State Democratic Executive Com
mittee in trlng to drive him out of the
part
These reports come from the various
counties where the new movement has
met with favor and the managers here
have been highly elated by the news
They are convinced that the otcrs have
realized that Tillman was behind the
whole scheme and this animosity to the
Senator is working right into the hands of
his colleague In several of the counties
the McLaurin organization Is being quiet
ly perfected and experienced politicians
have control of the campaign
Members of the Executive Committee
who voted against the resolution that
was meant to force Senator McLaurin out
of the party are out in interviews In
which they say that the scheme was
carefully planned In advance and that It
was due to the domineering work of Sen
ator Tillman The general belief is that
this resolution will be the wedge which
will split the party and by the time the
campaign opens the leaders expect to
see a demoralized condition of affairs
Charleston friends of Senator McLau
rin have been officially advised that he
will ignore the matter altogether and will
let the people pass final judgment The
Mcl aurln movement seems to be growing
and the element opposed to free silver and
the other element still bitterly opposed
to the policies of Tillman are mrking
the foundation for the McLaurin strength
Senator McLaurin has a child ill with
Uphold fever and he sas he will not
consider politics while the little one is in
danger At the same time his political
friends from all over the State are gath
ering to confer with him It is believed
he will be heard from this week

th circumstances of tho affair
According to the story told by the pas
sengers of the Allegheny Murrillo left
this country about four months ago to
visit the State of Colombia Before go
ing he provided himself wth passports
signed by the Colombian Minister ia
Washington Upon his arrival at Sava
nllla he was arrested by the local authori
ties for being in smpathy with the Lib
erals who were to ins to overthrow the
Government
Although he protested that such was
not the case and showed his passports
properly signed by the Washington repre
sentative of the Colombian Government
be was taken to Bogota the capital a
prisoner Here he was taken before the
Secretary of War who examined him and
his papers and decided that there was no
grounds upon which to hfild him He was
ordered however to return to Savanllla
and take the first vessel returning to the
United States During his Journey from
Bogota to Savanllla he was practically a
prisoner In charge of Castro Urtcochla
commander-in-chief of the army
Saanllla hb was placed on the out
going Hamburg American steamship Al
legheny which vzs to rail the same day
for the United States by way of Car
tagena The Allegheny originally belong
ed to the Atlas line and was under com
mand of Captain Lowe an Englishman
Upon arriving at Cartagena the vessel
was boarded by the chief of police of that
port who commanded Murrillo to go
ashore with him as the Secretary ot
War wished to see him again at Bogota
This Murrillo refused to do sajlng that
he had a passport irom the Secretary
guaranteeing him safe conduct from the
country and furthermore he was already
outside the Jurisdiction of the country
being on board a German vessel and
under the protection of the German flag
Failing in his attempt to get Murrillo to
go ashore with hlra the chief of police
left the vessel threatening to return with
a force of rollco and remove Murrilla
To avoid trouble the purser of
the steamship went ashore to get the
ships papers tho captain intending to
proceed to sea as soon as Jie obtained
them The harbor authorities refused to
give the papers to the purser saying they
would hold them until Captain Lowe gavo
Murrillo up This Captain Lowe refused
to do
Later in the day Captain Lowe went
ashore to see the local German Consul
While he was ashore the chief of police
and a force ot officers again boarded the
vessel and attempted to secure Murrillo
But the first mate who was acting cap
tain with the aid of some of the crew
also Engiisnmen refused to give Murrillo
up and by a show of force compelled tho
Cartagena police chief and his men to re
tire The captain returned from his In
terview soon after this The German
Consul had said that he was unable to aid
him
The captain was followed sb
chief of police and
backed up in person b
sul who being half i
oughly in smpathy wit
Government Again the -
Murrillo was demanded a n captain
was informed that unless he as delivered
at once the entire company would be car
ried away to prison for endeavoring to
aid an escaping prisoner In the meantinio
Murrillo had barricaded himself in his
cabin and the marines under the chief
of police proceeded to beat down the door
Seeing that escape was impossible Mur
rillo removed the barricade to confront
the drawn revolvers of the mrrines Ho
was hurried to the passengers cabin
where the way was blocked b the as
sembled passengers After further trou
ble Murrillo was gotten ashore
Matters at this point seeme d about to
assume an international aspect for the
passengers were Germans Americans
and English all of whom were in empa
thy with Murrillo When the argument
was going on In the cabin sotae cf the
passengers passed a German flag to
Murrillo who quickly tied himself to the
b misters of tbe stairs leading from the
passcngtrs cabin to the dining room
w and defied the chief of police and
marines to remove him from the protec
tion thereof The officers of the steamer
refused to permit the police and marines
to remove Murrillo but the German Con
sul came to the rescue of the Colombian
officer and as a represeitative ot the
Germ in Government ordered the captain
to allow the chief of police and the ma
rines to proceel in the discharge of their
dtit He threatened that in case this
was not done he would order the captain
and anv who might assist him in protect-
1 Murrillo to be locked up This In
Colombia would probably mean Im
prisonment for an indefinite period
owing to -the slowness with which Justice
is disnensed there
To obtain his papers and to avoid fur
ther delay Captain Low final signified
his willingness to give up Murrillo So
again the marines proceeded to tear Mur
rillo aw a from the banister to whicn

bined protest of the passengers of the
