"Victory " We have them now." and
like erica raiic out Then Hugh O'Don
nel. aeeompnaind by two ar three of the
old advisory committee, ran down the
teen bank to receive the message of peace.
The spokesman of the Pinkertons an
Bonnced that they would surrender on
condition that they be protected from the
violence of the mob. After a short parley
this nraa agreed to, though a multitude of
enraged people were how lrng for the blood
of the men who killed their comrades.
The Two BargM Looted.
As soon a--the mitnittee had arranged
the preUmlnariea a hundred or more from
the shore climbed upon the boat. A re
porter went into the frail craft and there
found one dead and clever, wounded Pink -erton
men. The steel worker- did not let
them talk long, but ordered them to hurry
out. The first one to leave had his Win
chester rifie with him. The rifles were
then taken away from all, and became the
property of the man who took the gun.
Then began a looting of the boat. The
Uniforms the guards had intended to wear
were either thrown Into the river or given
to the Hungarians. Everything of the
lightest value that was portable was
juried away by the crowd.
Aii Account of the Capitulation.
John .Martin, ticket agent of the Pan
handle and Pittsburg and Virginia and
Charleston roads, at Fourth avenue, this
city, was a spectator of the surrender of
the Pinkertona. He returned to Pittsbursr
at 8 o'clock last night. Agent Martin said: '
"The hills on all sides were black with I
people mined together. The strikers took
the Pinkerton men from the boat In double !
file, and for a moment did not know what
to do with t hem. Cries of "To the woodsl"
"To the woo lsp "Lynch the dogs!" etc., I
were heard on all sides. Every striker !
Named as it he wanted a particular man I
among the Pinkertona, After considerable 1
parley lOOH one suggested that the guards
De marched to the big skating rink, and
there tried for murder.
Clamored for Wholesale Slaughter.
"Many of the canton would not listpn to
thia. Some wanted to take the scared
Plnkertoni and shoot them aa they tood. I
Cooler heads, however, prevailed and the!
march to the rink began The temper of '
the crowd was very much in favor of
hanging at once, and the Pinkerton men I
were badly frightened, a- they bad a right
be. Several thousand people crowded I
around them on ad -ide. and demanded
revenge (or the killing of the strikers
daring th? day. In the crowds were bun
feeds of w, men, who seemed worse than
the men. They crowded around afl d tore
the clothes from the backs of the guards.
The latter had their Pinkerton uniforms
on over tlu ir citizen's clothes and these!
were palled off an thrown into the river. I
After considerable fighting the leaders
forced n passage through the crowd.
BSU tO WnlU tbs (iiiiitlet. 1
i hen the scene- really began. The
poor guards, with moat of their clot lie
torn i IT them. ere compelled to march
through he towi, to the nuk. On both
aides of thetl) stood lines of striker, ami
their friends, hooting and yelling as they
passed. A- the men passed through the
gantlet they were kicked and caffed on
all sides. Their Captors tried tO protect
them. Imt it was a physical impossibility.
They might as well have tried to stop a
foaillade ol bullets. Women and girl-ran
oat of the two lines and with sticks ami
club- beat the poor wretches. One wom
an bad a stocking filled with iron anil she
struck one of the Pinkerton men over the
head with it. I do not believe that uny of
hem c- ape 1 without having been cut
The Barge PI red mi Destroyed.
"The leaders of the strikers could not
keep the people away from the prisoners.
Scenes that almost beggar description were
enacted all the ;way to the rink. It was
the general supposition that the men
would lie given n speedy trial and con
victed by a .Indue Lynch jury. After the
barges had been looted they were set on
nre and soon they and their freight were in
ashes. The leaders of the mill men final
ly got their passengers safely to the large
Skating rink and Opera house where they
were kept under heavy guard. The
leaders then sent word to Sheriff McClcary
to come in person anil take care of the
The Prisoners Start for Pittsburg.
Shortly after U o'clock this morning it
was rumored about Homestead that the
prisoners were to be taken to Pittsburg on
a special train brought up by Sheriff Me
Cleary. About 12:90 President Weihe, of
the Amalgamated association, appeared
on the stageof the opera house and ordered
the hall cleared of all outsiders. Hugh
O'Dounell, of the advisory committee,
took charge, and formed the men in ranks.
He then informed the waiting crowds that
the outrages of yesterday afternoon were
cowardly, and that when the prisoners
were marched to the staiion they must be
protected. His remarks were received with
Hooted at Every Station.
A few minutes later the procession
started for the station. The wounded
brought up the rear, several being carried
in chairs, and no demonstration was made
on the way to the station. The trip down
to Pittsburg was made quietly, but at
every station a large crowd was gathered
and jeered and hooted. En route one of
of the men, Peter Gorman, of New York,
had a fit, requiring four men to hold him
in his seat. On reaching Try street sta
tion, Pittsburg, the wounded men were
taken from the train and removed to the
West Pean hospital. The train was then
taken to the Twenty-eighth street station
of the Pennsylvania railroad, another en
gine attached and the train pulled out

It is just learned that the Pinkerton
men were shipped out of the state. When

of Allegheny county, shortly before noon
yesterday, asking for protection from the
Homestead strikers, an 1 giving briefly the
fa.ts of the riot. Tht governor renliwi
that the local authoru es would be com
pelled to bring forth every effort in order
to protect themselves before the state oonld
lenil assistance In preser ring onler. Several
more dispatches were received, and the
governor seeing that he situation was
becoming desperate had a private consulta
tion with Attorney General Henael and
Secretary of the Commonwealth Han-icy
as to what would be tl e best position to
take before arriving at any decision. Sev
eral telegrams were sent to Sheriff Mc
Cleary asking for more definite information
before any state aid wot id be extended.
Pattison to sherl t McCleary.
PtTTSBCBO, July 7. Sheriff Mc
Cleary'a office was the scene of
many consultations yesterday. The
culmination of the sitm Hon by the attack
upon the barges contaii ing the Pinkerton
men sent up to Homeat ad to tak.- posses
sion of the works, and the scene-of dis
order and bloodshed ci atinuing through
out the day and ending In the Surrender
of the invading force ad led to the sheriff's
responsibilities and ai xiety, and made
hi- position one of the greatest difficulty.
After threoi telegram- to the governor
for state aid in suppressing the fast in
creasing disturbances, Sovernor Pattison
wired the following to Sheriff McCleary:
'Your telegram Indicates thai yon have
fot made any attempt t execute the law
to enforce order, and I must insist upon
your calling upon nil citizens for an adc
quate bomber of depot! - "
A Call on the Citizens.
That shows that the governor was deter
mined not to proceed In the matter. An
other consultation was held with Judge
Ewing, P. B. Petty and others, and at 5
o'clock the sheriff issued the following
proclamation which was ordered to be
printed and posted p: "All good citizens
are hereby notified to a;. pear at the sher

CROPS IN FOUI! STATES.
The Outlook in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois
TOLEDO, O.. July 7. During the past
three days King & Co. have received re
plies from over 1,200 grain dealers in Ohio,
Michigan, Indiana nt d Illinois. They
cover all the important wheat counties in
those states. The replies indicate that
the wheat crop in these states will be un
even iu yield and qui lity. Nearly half
say that the prospects nre excellent; a
third say an average crop, and the other
sixth indicate about 60 er cont. of n good
crop. Most of the Illinois crop is raised
in the ceutral and si uthern counties,
where the prospects nr.' very favorable;
southern Indiana has nearly as large a
crop and southern Ohio not quite as good.
The I'romiae in Mtehignn.
Michigan promises mr re than an average
crop, but the northern h ilf of Indiana has
the poorest outlook, the northern half of
Ohio nearly as bad, and the northern half
of Illinois has only a fair prospect. The
shortage in winter wbeaathia year as com
pared with last is most I;, in Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois, and Missouri. Prospects now are
not quite as favorable in the four states as
they were a month ago. Illinois has im
proved in the southeri. part; Indiana is
worst in the northern ha f, and the outlook
is a trifle worse in tht northern half of
Ohio, while Michigan ilso promises less
Cause or Recent Damage.
The recent damage has been caused
by the excessive rainfal and
hot weather. A third report no
damage; an eighth i amage by rust
and a smaller number complain of blight,
insects, scabs, smut a id lodging. The
quality promises to aver ige worse than a
year ago when it was very good. Quality
is good in southern Illinois and southern
Indiana. The new wheat movement will
be small until the middle of July. A few
iu southern Indiana am Illinois report it
moving now and have told for first half
of Jul v delivery here, but these are exceptions.

His Party Doesn't Do as Well as was
IxiMxix, July 7. The to.al number of
members so far elected, incl tiding yester
day's pollings, is M0, of whom there are
122 Conservatives and twenty Unionists,
making a total of 142 Tory-Unionisns.'
The Liberals have ninety-four members
and the Irish Nationalists have four. In
yesterday's elections the Liberals captured
twelve seats heretofore held by Conserva
