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.

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
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

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

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. The first shot
caused the strikers to rush out into <.be
rain, thinking another fight bad begun.
On arrival at General Snowden's head
quarters he was heartily greeted by the
commanding officer. The object of the
Governor's visit is to inspect the troops.
Be will probably remain one week. It is
not thought he will make any attempt
toward the arbitration of the labor differ
ences. The Governor is accompanied by
bis staff and other < flicere to the number
of 20.
Lkbaxox, Pa., July 19.— First Brig

.New Yoi:k, July 19.— The Evening
World's special from Homestead says: It
has not vet been decided by Governor Pat
tison whether he will address the men at
Homestead. He will remain here two days,
during which time he will carefully study
the situation. " Can you 6tale bow lone the
troops will remain at Home«:fad?" asked
a reporter. Tho Governor replied evasively,
"I cannot. I may, however, say I fear the
troop* will be here some time yet"
Ka More Criminal Prosecutions Probable
by the Company.
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.

A Story That Miners Were Marching
on the Cor d'Alenes.
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

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

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.

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.

New York. July 19.— National Dem

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

they fear that flarrltv's selection would be
displeasing to the regular New York Democ

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

last month communicated to United States
Minister Egan the disposition of the Chilean
Government to come to an adjustment of the
Baltimore indemnity. Julyl Minister Egan
was informed by Secretary Foster that the
President was much gratified at the disposi

doubt it would be ready to make a liberal
indemnity to the families of the deceased

App«ala in Indian <>•»■«.
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. The first provision of the
bill, the President thinks, would defeat the
purpose of Congress in constituting inter
mediate courts. The chief objection is the
third section, which provides that no ap
peal be allowed in such cases. There are
30,000 such claims, aggregating $3^,000.000.
The President said he could not approve a
bill which denied the Government an op
portunity to appeal such cases. 'i he mes
sage was referred by the Senate to the Ju

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

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
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

was not satisfied, and fimvl.y the diamond
tray was placed on the showcase. Bent then

dresses well aDd speaks intelligently. He

The crime ia one of the boldest ever

wanted to get into the penitentiary as he
could hardly have hoped to escape through
the crowded street in broad daylight.
