Special to The MORNINO Call PirrSßtntG, July 19. —An Associated Press reporter made a tour of the Home stead 6teel mills to-day, being the only newspaper man who has succeeded in gain ing admission behind the great fence. lie found about 150 men at work, most of them cew employes. Four furnaces in the armor plate department were charged to-day, and the complete resumption in this department will take place to-morrow. The open hearth departments and the mechanical department were also being worked, but in a desultory way. The assistant superintend ent is confident, if the mill resumes opera tions successfully for a day or two, many of the former employes will return to work. A large number of colored men arrived in Pittsburg to-day and visited Mr. Prick. Their destination is surmised to be Home stead. WORK RESUMED. Fires Lit In Some of the Furnaces In the Homestead Mills. Homestead, July 19. — Smoke Issued from half a dozen stacks on the Carnegie mill to-day, and to-night lights are gleaming in many furnaces. Acentleman who has been through the mills said that about 140 me chanics are at work, the chief focus of activity being in the mill where the armor plate Is bent to fit the fides of battle-ship*. A casting was made in the presence of the visitors, but the workmen say that this is the most rudimentary part of the armor plate work. The attitude, of the mechanical depart ment was rather a surprise to the mill owners. Manager Potter was confident that a great ninny men would return to work Monday and to-day. They did not do so. It has developed that men can be, .» lipped into the works without knowledge of the locked-out workmen very easily, and it is be lieved now that Mr. Potter will find no difficulty in introducing such persons as can be induced to go into the company's employment TIIE ARRESTED EN. Claims of the Company That They Can Fill Their 1 lace.. Prrrsßuno, July 19— It was expected that Burgess McLuckle of Homestead would have a hearing this morning on his applica tion for bail, but his lawyer failed to give the requisite notice, so he was remanded to Jail till to-morrow morning. The officials of the Carnegie Company claim to have no fears of airest on com plaint of the men. They say the men are the aggressors and know they could not sus tain a prosecution, berretary Lovejoy ad mitted to-day the company has the names ef many of the men who took part in the at tack on the Pinkertouß, and will continue to cause their arrest from day to day. lie. declares that there is no truth whatever in the reports that the company are getting men from abroad. He asserts that there is no need for such a course, because the company can get ail the men it wants in tbi*« country; in fact, it already has applications from enough who nave applied in person, not counting those who have applied by letter. He Bays the company if. going glow to give the old men a chance, but after the 21st inst. their places will be filled by nun-union men, of whom, he aver-, the company will have all it needs. He further «ays non-union men have been going into the mill every day nnd night for some time and this will be continued. It is nut thought any opposition will be made to McLuckle's release. When this Is dene it is believed other men will surrender and give bail. A number of men for whom warrants were Issued yesterday went to Pitteburg this morning for the purpose of surrendering. The locked- out men at Homestead pro pose to tnnke a great legal fight for the acquittal of those of their number atrainst whom proceedings are taken. They hnve secured the service* of General B. F. Butler and ex-Governor Hoadley of Ohio to defend them. It is now believed C'Donnell's East ern mission was to confer with Butler on the subject Butler is expected to reach Pittsburg to-night. The men are waiting (or the advice of their attorneys before tak ing action against the Carnegie officials. RECEPTION IN THE. RAIN. Governor I'nitUon Arrive? at Homestead and Is Received by the Militia. Homestead, Pa., July 19. — Governor Pattison arrived this morning. He was es corted by a detachment of cavalry from the depot through a pouring rain to General Snowden's headquarters, while the cannon on the hill boomed a salute.

Bomestead, July 19.— Barring surprises, the indications to-night were that however many criminal informations against the strikers might be cited by the Carnegie officials in Pittsburg a truce to arrests was, at least temporarily, the programme to be pursued in Homestead. During the day innumerable rumors of warrants kept the excitement at a high point, and a constable hat serving subpenas had a narrow escape from violence in the afternoon, some of the mukcular strikers at one point thinking they were to be arrested. In the military camp to-day, despite the Inspection of the Second Brigade by Gov ernor Patti«on, matters were extremely quiet. The Governor expressed himself de lighted with the condition of the troopn. He declined to discuss the Homestead situation and be would say nothing about a report that a provisional regiment would be formed to stay here all summer, but among militiamen such a (Cory is current, it being said that 500 volunteers would be asked lor among the men now here, to be paid by the State. Many of the soldiers are anxious to get home, not a few of them being business men, whoso bume interests are suffering.

WAR CLOUDS IN MONTANA. A Story That Miners Were Marching on the Cor d'Alenes. IT PROVED TO BE OSLY A HOAX. There Was a Hurried Movement or Troops to the Front, but the Invading Force Did Not Materialize. Special to The Mobvixo Call. Wallace. Idaho. July 19.— Reports to the effect that miners were coining from Montana armed and resolved to assist the union miners in the Coeur d'Alenes to-day caused a movement of troops to check mv such attempt. Colonel Carlin and staff, with three companies of infantry, arrived here at 11 a. m., and Colonel Page's com mand has been under anus and ready to move at a moment's notice. The town of Saltez, Mont, is the objective point of the invading miners, and Captain Bubb, with three companies, marched to Summit last night from Gem and holds the trail leading from Saltez. The lender of this movement of invasion Is Breen, who is the president of the Unite Union. Requisition papers have been sent to the Governor of Montana, and it is prob able that he will soon be under arrest. He is and has been the leading agitator in the Carat d'Alene trouble. Martial law may yet have to be declared in Montana, a* the theater of the operations of the troops will continue to be along tie border line of tint State. It is thought that Colonel Cariin will he perfectly able to cope with any armed body of men that may be deluded into entering upon an invasion. NOBODY IN SIGHT. The Armed Bodies of ■«■ Were Rather of thn Mythic <1 Sort. Wardxki:, Idaho, July 19.— Colonel Car -lln returned here this evening with his command from Lookout, Mont. The hur ried departure of the troops from here this morning was due to a report that a large body of armed men was assembling just over the summit near Lookout. Two com panies were taken from here. Company A, lil iho National Guard, was picked up at Osborne and taken to Wallace, and at that place General Cur.is. with Colonel Page and two companies of 200 infantry joined the command, with three deputy mar shals, who were supposed to be ac quainted with the country. The command reached Lookout nt 1 p. m., when it was met by Conductor Bradley of the Northern Pacific Railroad, who had been ordered to meet the command there and conduct it to the rendezvous of the a rim miners. After the train reached the point where the troops were to leave the railroad, it was found that the conductor was not on the train. Lieutenant-Colonel Page had been sent forward in charge of the troop*, and, as no one knew where the trail was which had to be followed, he ran the train to Ballot and came back on the. regular passenger. The two companies with Colonel Cart in marched down the railroad about two miles and rested until the other- came back. On the return to Lookout the conductor was found at the station, and when he was Questioned said he had been on the train, but was told t« get off when it started. The story of armed men being seen alone the border line appears to have no founda tion, but Colonel Carlin's promptness in moving the troops will have a good effect, as it shows the utter folly of attempting to send a body if men to the assistance of the miners iraprls< here. Every precaution dad been taken toguaid against an attack on the expedition. Major Randall, with a detachment, rode in the engine, and before reaching the summit a skirmish Hue was thrown out and sent for ward in advance. When it was learned that no indications pointed to the assembling of armed bodies of men, the troops returned to their stations. A FALSE ALARM. Men of Uikorne Turn Out to Search the IMlls for Miner*. Wards eh, July —After the company of the .Slate National Guard was taken away from Osborne to-day quite a flurry of excitement was occasioned by an alarm that armed men were visible on the hills back of the town. A large posse was organized to scour the hills, but after a fruitless search they returned to town. Two prisoners were turned over to Colonel Carliu at Oaborne to-day by Captain Stevenson. The Black brother?, "Sage Brush" and "Jack Long," who have been leaders in all the depredations committed by tie union men in and about Wallace, are still at large. All are desperate men. and being provided with good horses, they are constantly cross ing into Montana and returning by obscure trails. HELD Ul* A TRAIN. An Entirely New Development in the J.i li.. Country. Wallace, Idaho, July 19.— Late last night three armed men stopped a Northern Pacific train on the summit near the Mon tana line. They were very rude, boister ous and defiant They told Conductor Bradley that be had been warned three turn to keep out of this part of th«) coun try, and that if he ever came back up there they would kill him. Bradley repotted this to the Northern Pacific officials, and they urged Colonel Carliu to send a military force to Baltr-l to protect their train*. This was done, and Calonel Carlin is them in person to direct the disposition of the troops. A gang of denperodoes is reported to be entrenched In the hills along the Montana line under the leadership of Webb Leisure, a tough of the hardest caliber, and Conduc tor Bradley said he saw at least 50 men in the vicinity of the train when it was held up. "WARRANTS (OK THEM. Union Mlneri Moat Settle With the United States Court*. Boise, Idaho, July Warrants for the arrest of the leaders in the Cceur d'Alene riots were Issued out of Judge Beatty'a court this afternoon. The prisoners will probably be brought to Boise, and the question of jurisdiction settled afterward. The offense charged is the violation of the injunction issued out of the United States Circuit Court. The bill dividing the State Into divisions removes all business to the division In which it originated, and thus the Caiur d'Alene business would go to Moscow if it should be transferred. It Is the general opinion that it will be necessary to hold a special term of the United States Circuit Court if the cases go to Moscow, and this can only be called by Justice Field. INTERSTATE CUMMEKCE CASES. Damaging Testimony Against a Firm Charged With Bribing Officials. St. Joshi'ii, Me, July 19.— The testimony In the interstate commerce case In the United Slates court, In which Howell, Jew ett & Co. are charged with violating the law by undcrweighing cars and bribing the agents of the Kock Island road, was ex tremrlj daaiafbu to the defendants.

Coleman Dray ton tailed for Bremen to-day upon the Aller of the North German Lloyd Line. Her name did not appear on the passenger list. John Jacob Astor attended his sister to the vessel and took an affectionate leave of her before the shin Hailed. From Bremen Mrs. Dray ton will repair to Wiesbaden to join her mother, Mrs Astor, and her sister, Mrs. Orm Wilson, both of whom have been far from well since their great bereavement by the death of William Astor. J. Coleman Dray ton was not at the dock. He is In Pennsylvania, whore h« has gone to cet his four children in readine->a for their trip lo Bar Harbnr, Maine, where Draytou has leased a cottane for the season. Trie reconciliation between Mrs. and Mr. Drayton has been an accomplished fact for several weeks and was formally ratified in * meeting at the Astor mansion on Fifth avenue, about two weeks since. At that time they met, and attended by their attor neys agreed upon business arrangements necessitated by William Astnr'a will. A thoroughly amicable settlement was made, by the terms of which Draytou will receive a certain amount fortlie maintenance of the children of the coin le, a* it was provided that the income resulting from S-Co.o.hi was to go to the children in tru-t. For the present Draytnn, being their custodi-in, re ceives the amount specified, the, principal being invested in real estate, as is the Astor custom. POLITICAL AFFAIRS. The Democrats Preparing for the \ational Campaign— Opposition to Harrity. New York. July 19.— National Dem ocratic Committee will meet in this city to morrow evening for the purpose of organiz ing aud laying out the preliminary work of the campaign. On Wednesday the commit tee will effect a permanent organization, and immediately following this will come a conference between the committee and Cleveland and Stevenson. The indications are still favorable to the selection of Willi F. II in i ty of Pennsylvania as chairman of the national committee, but there has sud denly developed some opposition from some of the Southern States. The committee me a who express doubts as to the wisdom of se lecting llarrlly are frank in stating that they fear that flarrltv's selection would be displeasing to the regular New York Democ racy. The influence of Harrity was potent In throwing the solid vote of Pennsylvania" to Cleveland, and many think the selection of a Peunsvlvanian to lead the campaign might be construed into an affront to the New York friends of Hill. Efforts to secure an expression from the Tammany leaden on this point have so far proved unavaiHn g. A careful canvass of the national COM mltteemen late to-night shows that what ever doubt there may be in some quarters as to the wisdom of Harrlty's selection; there is a unanimous desire to sstect as chairman the man who is most agreeable to Cleveland and Stevenson. The re-election of S. P. Mierin of Indiana as secretary of the committee is a foregone conclusion. One of the most important matters to ba considered by the committee is the estab lishment of branch headquarters in Chicago In charge of a sub-c»mmittee of the Na» tional Committee. This sub-committee, it is contemplated, will have charge of the campaign in Illinois, Indiana. Wisconsin; lowa and other Western and Northwestern States, held to be in the doubtful list "It is my intention," sain Chairman Pbelps of the Illinois State Central Commit tee to-night, "to appear before the National Committee and urge the establishment of Western headquarters at Chicago. 1 pro pose to convince them that, with proper effort, Illinois can be carried for Cleveland and Stevenson." In the vast the notification of Presidential candidates has been of a formal character, and usually the public has not been ad mitted. This year, however, both candi dates will receive the notification at the sp.niti lime and in the presence of many thousand people. The Madison-square Gar den* has been fitted up with decorations typical of the national Democratic conven tion. Tie crowd that will assemble there to-morrow will complete the parallel, and it Is probable that the enthusiasm of the oc casion will rival the scenes in Chicago a few weeks ago. Tbe demand for tickets of admission has been so great that a <iall five times as large would not accommodate all the applicants. The notification ceremonies will occur to-morrow evening at 8:30 o'clock. Going to the Conference. Buzzahds Bay, July —Messrs.

A message was sent to the Senate to-day by the President, returning without his ap proval the bill to amend the act as to the Circuit Court of Appeal* incases of Indian depredations.

Remarkable Boldness of a Desperate Sacramento Thief. TOE HATE TOOK A TRAY OF DIAMONDS. Throwing Black Pepper Into (he Dealer's Eyes, He lade Off With the Stones as Fast as Bis Legs Could Carry Dim. Special to The Morning Call Sacramento, July 19.— A sensational robbery was attempted here this afternoon. A young man well dressed and of respecta ble appearance stepped into Klune & Floberg's jewelry-store and askod to .see a diamond. Mr. Klune stepped up to wait on the young fellow, taking out a tray ot preci ous stone, which the young man-proceeded to examine. After the lapse of a moment or so the man dashed a handful of black pepper into Rhine's face, seized th« tray and ran. Kluue pursued him at once and several persons joined in the chase, and cries of "atop thief" went up from several throats. The daring scoundrel ran down to Fifth street, and then to I, down which he turned, evidently intending to hide him self in the Chinese quarter*. At the corner of Fifth and I Andrew Walton, Governor Murk ham's messenger, undertook to stop him, but the thief eluded him. At Fourth and 1 Special Officer Kripp joined in the chase, but the mau wan too fleet to be caught easily, and Kripp and Walton chased him to the passenger depot, where they finally cap tured him. Wheeling suddenly around the thief ex claimed : "Well, 1 give up" and Kripp placed him under arrest and took him to the police station. At the prison the man, who is not much over 35 years of age, displayed remarkable coolness. The tray of diamonds was taken from under the fellow's coat, and it was found that all the gems were still there, ex cept one, which the thief explained that he must have dropped while he ran. The dia monds were worth about $2000. At the station, after some hesitation, the man finally admitted that his uam« was Eb >n Bent, lie says he has been in Sacra mento about a year and half. lie showed very little concern about his capture, and coolly remarked that if he had once got on a train he would never have been caught. Mr. Klune said to a Ben reporter that the man came in and asked for an engagement ring. Several trays were produced, but he was not satisfied, and fimvl.y the diamond tray was placed on the showcase. Bent then Raw asv i with his left arm and a lot of black pepper at the same instant filled Klune's lace and eyes. A3 he spoke to the reporter his eyes were seen to be somewhat bloodshot, but he said he experienced no pain. Bent is not known to the police. He dresses well aDd speaks intelligently. He had £2 in his pockets when arrested. The crime ia one of the boldest ever known here, and it looks as if Bent actually wanted to get into the penitentiary as he could hardly have hoped to escape through the crowded street in broad daylight.
