STARTING WITH NEW MEN. The Carnegie Works Bringing in Steamboat Loads. EMPLOYES EVICTED FROM THEIR HOSES Plea of the Workman for Justice— The rinkertons' tta!<ni<nt Before the Congressional In veslisaling Committee. .Special to The Mossing Call. pRTSBUBOc, July 22.— The Carnegie Com pany this morning began to carry out its expressed intention to put non-union men in the Homestead mills. The steamers Tide and Little Hill left with loads of new men this morning and will continue to make trips all day. From the number of men com and going at th edifices of the company it looks as if the claim that the company has all the men necessary to start the mills is true. A high official of the Carnegie Company says everything is very encouraging at Homestead. A number of new men have gone to work nnd me of the striker** wen t back. The company has more workmen than it can easily handle. The applications for work are plenty, but only pood men are engaged. lie says the lid-inch plate mill and tbe 32-inch slab department are run ning in full. The other branches are being put In readiness for immediate resumption. The steamer Tide arrived at Homestead this afternoon with 52 carpenters and mill-work ers. They were landed without 'incident. There is no change at the Union or Beaver Falls mills. :-yy,rjZr^ ■ All old employes occupying honses owned by tbe company were served with eviction notices this morning. Under the contract with the company they are obliged to deliver possession in 10 days. Tbe strikers report the ranks as still solid, bnt the line at the relief committee, rooms this morning was noarly twice as long as before. A committee from Braddock reported to the strikers to-night that the men in those mills iron strike to-morrow. The skilled workmen at the Duauesne steelmills of tbe Carnegie Stee l Company, to the number of 300; went on a strike to night in sympathy with the Homestead men. The men announce that they will not go to work until the Homestead matter is set tled and the Amalgamated Association recognized by the Carnegie Company. The strike was a surprise, as the Duquesne mill was supposed to be non-union, but it seems (be workmen organized a lodge tbeie within the past two weeks. PLEA OF THE WORKMEN. Addresa Issned by the Advisory Com mittee on the Sit v.l I on. Homestead, July 22.— Tbe Workmen's Advisory Board Issued an address to the men and the public generally Ibis morning. Tbe address calls attention to the tendency to concentrate business in the bands ol a few men, giving them despotic power over their employes, who constitute the ureal mass of the people. Instead of it being the "right of employers to manage their own business," it is coming to mean the "right to manage the country." The employes of the Carnegie Company at Homestead have built up tbe town, worked faithfully with the company many years In the business of the mill, and in vested thousands of dollars of tbeir savings In the mill in expectation of working there as lung as they are able to work, The Gov ernment taxes the country to foster this bnsiness, and tbe State of Pennsylvania is spending large sums to protect the mills. Therefore the belief Is expressed that the employes and the public have equitable rights i: tbese mills; tliat the employes have the right to continuous employment without regard to religion, political or trades-union affiliations. The position of tiie company is de clared to be unconstitutional, anarchistic, revolutionary and Id contempt of public and private interests, and the address adds: "The committee wishes it kuown that wo will prosecute tbe said pub lic and private" interests in the courts of law and equity, and we demand of Congress and the btate Legislature the distinct as sertion of the principle tbat the public has an interest in such concerns as that at Homestead, and that the State has a duty to Judge the affairs of sucb concerns when occasion may reauire." The address closes with a pledge to abstain from all violence and rest on the courts lor remedy. THE ARRESTED LEADERS. Finkerton Detective"* Identifying the Ac cused in the i'ltthliur .1 nil. PItTSBUBO, July 22. — This afternoon eight men, supposed to be Pinkertons, who were at Homestead during the riot, called at the County Jail to identify Hugh O'Don nell. He was brought into the corridor wltb a dozen other prisoners, and identified by each of tbe eight men. It it believed tbis is a move by the Pinkertons for the purpose of preventing O'Donnell's release on bail by bringing a charge of murder In th" first degree against him. Judge Magee this morniug fixed the time for hearing the applications of O'Donnell and Kos«, labor leaders, for release on bail for to-morrow morning. Informations were made in Pittsburg to day on a charge of murder against Peter Allen at.d Matthew Fay. both Homes! workmen, alleged to have been leaders in the Pinkerton repulse. LOOKING KMI SIEN. The Carnegie Company Off* ring Higher Wages in Other Iron Centers. St. Louis. July 22.— Some days ago an advertisement appeared in a local paper for puddlers, heaters and ironworkers to go East A union ironworker, who ap plied, says the advertiser is an agent of the Carnegie Company from Homestead, bunt ing men to take places in -the mills there. The wages offered are 15 to 40 cents a day higher. than the strikers were receiving at the time of the lockout. New Yokk, .Inly 22.— Advices from Phil adelphia and Boston report that the Carne gie agents are actively recruiting non-union men for Homestead mills. THE STATE MILITIA. Another Brigade Ordered to If oin extend and Departure of the GoTernor. Homestead, Pa., July 22.— Governor Pattison left for Harrisburg at noon. Just before leaving be stated emphatically that no change bad been made in the orders to the troops and none were contemplated* The departure of the Governor cuts off all hope of the strikers that he would inter vene in their behalf. he tension between the troops and the strikers grows and serious results are likely to follow at any time. Owing to the increasing friction between tbe soldiers nnd the strikers the Governor betore leaving to-day made an arrangement which, it is hoped, will settle the trouble. A force of Deputy Sheriffs will be brought In from Pittsburg, and together with the borough officers will be placed in control of the town, the only duty of the militia being to aid them when called upon. The soldiers for the last two days have been more vigorous than usual in clearing the streets, and much bitter feeling bus been developed among the people. The women ■re more bitter than the men 111 their lan guage about the troops, and in the camp tbe hostile feeling was continually returned warmly. Thn prospect for an indefinite stay In camp here is not an inviting one, and tiie militiamen aro eagerly king for or ders which will permit them to return Lome. Philadelphia, July 22.— The First Brigade, State troops, has been ordered to be in readiness to go to Homestead. This brigade was ordered home only a few days ago. it is not known what this order por tends, but itit believed it is merely to re lieve the troops already tbere. I'LNKtIiTO.N'S STORY. Statement Made Refore the Congres sional Investigation Committee. Washington, July 22. — The special committee inquiring Into the Homes?*:.;; troubles beard the Pinkerton side this morning. Itobert Pinkerton presented a statement covering the history of his agency since its organization in 1870, stating that for 20 years be has furnished men to pro tect property during etrikes. These men The Morning Call. are carefully selected and seldom permitted to cany arms except under public au thority. They bave never wantonly bred a shot in any strike. The men were sent to Homestead only on the assurance that the Sheriff would swear Ihem in as deputies if necessary. Many of these men were regular employes, thor oughly tried and trustworthy. The others were vouched for. They did not go into Pennsylvania :is an armed force. The arms were shipped from Chicago and ordered not to be given to the men unless deputized by the Sheriff. As a matter of fact, the boxes were not opened until the strikers opened fire, and It became a matter of life and death. Klein had been killed and five others wounded before the Pinkertons returned fire. The Pinkertons were handicapped in the fight by the fact that the strikers made a breast work by placing the women and children in front. Not a single woman or child was in jured. Acts Claimed to Ite Legal. The statement declares the acts of the strikers after the surrender of the watch men "a disgrace to savages." yet because done in the name of American labor it is upheld by some newspapers and political demagogues. It declares that on tin- trials for murder It will be shown the Pinkertons* acts were legal. Tin* statement then reviews the history of strikes, aad says it shows thatorganized labor everywhere will murder and destroy property out of sheer wanton ness and revenge, and it is morally certain from the threats of the men themselves tbat the Homestead strikers would have done likewise if tho company had tried to supply their places. Tbe employment all over the country by banks and private people as watchmen is referred to, end then the subscribers to the statement affirm their counsel assure tbem they have violated no law, Federal or State; that they had a right to employ and send men to Homestead to net as watchmen tnat if tbey were attacked, they had '.be right to kill, If absolutely necessary for self-defense; tliat tbey bad a right to bear arms on the premises of the Carnegie Company, in order to protect life and property, whether or not they were deputized by the Sheriff of Alle gbeuy County; that "we had the right to snip arms from Chicago to the Carnegie yards at Homestead for the purpose of aim ing nnr men after they were deputized by the Sheriff; that in view of the attack on the barges our men had the right to bear arms and defend themselves, and that all their acts In firing in self-defense from the barges after the attack on them were fully justifiable under the laws of the United States and the laws of the State of Penn sylvania." X l.^rt riakerton's Testimony. Eobert Pinkerton was called to the stand and required to answer a long list of ques tions, which were prepared by lie repre sentatives of the Knights of Labor. His replies, la substance, were as iollows: The . Pinkerton Agency owned about 250 rifles, 400 pistols and an equal number of chilis, ail deposited at Chicago In all of their various branches the firm never had at any one time more than 800 persons in its employ. Their employ, were advised ex actly what tbey were to do and were per fectly at liberty to refuse employment to which they objected. All the men scut to Homestead knew the nature of their em ploy meut. Tbe barges were not constructed for the purposes of protection, and were not lined with iron or steel, and could not resist small arms. The men won d never have been allowed to star: on the expedition if it bad been known that they a ere to be at tacked before landing. Barges were em ployed because it was believed tho men would be able to land without a breach of the peace, and the lending was made at night for the reason thai the Sheriff's f ?rce had been resisted in the daytime, and it was expected the strikers would be in bed. Tbe sole desire was by ail means to avoid a breach of the peace, otherwise the men would not have been ; ermltted to go, unless authorized by the Governor or depul by tbe Sheriff. The only purpose was to nit the men upon private property and then protect it from attack. The men would not have fired, except as a matter of self-defense. It was understood tbat the Carnegie Company had applied to tbe proper legal authorities, and tbat the men were going to Homestead with the approval of the Sheriff. Pluker ton though if bis men had fired M kill many more lives would bave been lost, and tbe works could have been taken at that time, but not without great loss of life. The th urge of Cow., rd Ice. Chairman Gates asked the witness What be bad to say of the statement that 50 go* soldiers could have scattered the Home stead mob and tbat cowardice was shown by the Pinkertons. The witness replied that he had talked with his men. and they said they could have taken possession of the works almost stany time before 10 o'clock, but would have h<id to kill men, women and children, and they would not de anything of th- kind. The first firing they did was over the heads of the crowd. Boatuer having asked how it was that tie trouble occurred, when the strikers claimed they did not encourage violence aod the Pinkertons were instructed not to use vio lence, Pinkerton made a reply that hit squarely at the Knights of Labor repre sentatives present. He said bo bad never seen a strike when the labor organizations or their men bad not abused the non-union men. He had seen men knocked eff trains; he had seen them beaten to Jelly; he had known members of tnis very Knights of Labor, whose representatives were here, to put obstructions on the tracks and dyna mite under cars; he bsd seen men who wanted to work treated worse than savages could have treated them by the representa tives of the secret labor organizations. « William A. Pinkerton corroborated all that his brother had said. N»t»I Work Delayed. Philadelphia, July 22.— The work on the cruiser New York is being delayed be cause of the non-receipt of armor from the Carnegie works. The boat will bo launched next week, but without her side armor, the Carnegie works having this contract also. No armor for the Massachusetts is here, tho Carnegie people also being tbe contractors.

Legislation Proposed by the Sew Leaders—States men .lamed for the Adiainistraliou— Com position of Parliament. Ccpyrlplitt'C. MM, by the New York AMoclated I'resa. London, July 42.— To inquiries addressed to Douglas, the chief Conservative whip, to-day, as to whether the Government, it defeated on the vole of "no confidence," would persist in remaining in office, ha re sponded: "Tbe Government will act in ac cordance with precedent and the constitu tion." As the balance nf the precedents is distinctly toward Immediate resignation on defeat, the whip's reply cnu be taken as opposed to the reports that Salisbury will challenge the validity of Gladstone's major ity and try to govern with a minority. The article in the Post adopting tbe suggestion does not carry much weight Tho Post is not an Inspired orgau, and ttie result of re searches made to-day in ofli iai quarters by the representative of the Associated PraM has coufirmed the previous statement that both tho Conservative and Liberal-Unionist leaders bave decided to resign on the first vote in which the majority is against them. The result of a meeting of a small group of Radicals in the house -.of Harcourt yes terday has been the introduction of lbe first note of discord in tiie party. After the meeting several members ofthe Commons who were present appeared at the National- Liberal Club, when they announced that a memorial would bo sent to Gladsl urg ing hiui to put the leading planks cl th« Newcastle gramme te the forefroiu and home rule in the background. Although the general feeling at the ciub is distinctly in favor of this rourse, vet the desire to leave Gladstone unfettered is stronger, and the proposed Radical protest, as likely to embarrass bim, is disapproved. The move ment is causing so internal row. The reseived attitude of the Irish leaders is in contrast wiih this premature activity of the Radio Dillon and O'Brien and other MeCarthylte chiefs will not be inter viewed for the present An analysis of tha personnel of the new House shows that lawyers bold Jti-2 seais, merchants 55, army and navy .-flieers 53. of ficers of the auxiliary forces 52, journalists 35, manufacturers 57, peers' sons ami broth ers ■:.. gentry and land-owners S3, ship owners 19, brewers 18, farmers 10, labor represent 15, railway directors 50, while the remainiuE seats are occupied by men of various other vocations or classes. the .NEW c vi;ivi:r.

London, July 22.— The Post this morn ing contained a leader headed "Why Re sign?" which is causing a sensation, in vieyv of that taper's close relations with the Gov ernment. It say-: "Assuming that the opposition has a sender majority on tbe motion that the Government does net pos sess the confidence of i'u' country, why should the Ministers immediately resign, iii view of the fact that they have not lo deal with a compact opposition, bur only with a disjointed horde of factions? The Min istry." the article continues, "should not act beyond advising the sovereign to pro rogue Parliament until the normal period of assemblage arrive*." THE CHOLERA SCOURGE.

Commercial Relation* Rill With Canada Paused— Against Anti-Option Kill. Washington, July 22.— After unimpor taut business Poller addressed the Seuate on his resolution to inquire into the relation of employers and employes. He said there were three ways to meet the labor troubles; one was for the Government to keep its hands off; another, for the -Government to establish and regulate wages, ana the third, the Government to take possession of pri vate establishments and conduct them. At the close of his remarks the resolution was referred to the Committee on Education and Labor. Bate addressed the Senate In support of Voorhees' resolution for the establishment of a tribunal of arbitration in labor contests and then lute resumed His speech against the anti-option bill. White called attention to the anomaly that if the Dill had not specially excepted the Government of the United Stales, the Government would have been amenable to the realities of the bill. Were not nil the bills for supplies tendered to the Govern ment made by parties who did not at the time the contracts were made own the sup plies? he asked. Kef erring to the fact that retail dealers were excepted. White said there were so many exceptions in the bill it minht well be called an exceptional bill, so entirely so that he thought it ought to be defeated. He went on la de lare the bill pernicious and vicious. It would strike a blow at tho commerce of the country, and it was the consensus of opinion on the part of the commercial bodies that the country was against the measure, anil in this line lie had read protests from various commercial asso ciations. Speaking of ••futures," White said that before that system cam*- into existence the cotton business was confined to men of large capital, whereas now, under the "futurede liven " system, all men were on a footing of equality and men with small capital were equals with those of large capital. lie had telegrams read Irom many cotton factors in New Orleans. As to the effect of the "fu ture system on wheat. White quoted Mr. P llsbury's testimony before the House Committee on Agriculture to the effect that fur the last teu years the millers had paid mure for their wheat than they bad re ceived forth- ti mr made from it. White would like to know what became of the argument that under the "future" system the farmers didn't receive for their wheat na much as they otherwise would have dove. i Speaking on cotton again, be said he bad seen lately a letter from a German mer chant In Hamburg stating that he noticed that there was an intention to 6irike down the exchange business here, and he hoped it would come over there. White spoke nearly three hours, and the bill went over without action. The House bill to enforce recipro cal commercial arrangements between the United States and Cauada was passed without division. After a brief executive session tbo Senate adjourned. THK HOUSE. Clalma of raclfio Kill road* for Trans portation of the Mail* Defeated.

The discussion of the conference report on the deficiency bill was not ended when the House adjourned. SHORT PEACH CROP. Small Yield Predicted in Delaware and In Jersey. New Your, July 22.— Goodsell, a well known auctioneer, says: "This is an ex ceptional year, so far as the peach business is concerned. There has been almost com plete failure in Delaware. Reports to the railroads of the number of baskets of peaches that Delaware will have this year show that not more than 300,000 baskets cau be expected, ,as against 3.000,000 last summer, ln New Jersey, where 3,000.000 were expected, there will probably be not over 500,000 baskets. In consequence Cali fornia will be the only souice of supply during August and September as was the case two years ago." "The fe.ture this season which makes It unlike any preceding years is the Georgia supply. For the first time Georgia peaches are cutting a considerable figure in the market. At present about ten carloads of fruit from tbe orchards about Marsballville, Fort Valley and Griffin are being received bere daily, and they are undoubtedly the bnest peaches that are growing in the United States. They are of the Elberta and Chinese freestone varieties, but chiefly Blbertes, about 200,000 pounds a day. There are about 50.000 pounds of Californias being received likewise, dally, of early Crawfords and Hales' early variety, which retail at about £1 a basket. Georgians can be hi.d at 50 and 7.". cents a box, holding about three dozen. The California crop is light this year. It takes seven days to bring a car of peaches from Georgia to this city, and the transportation amounts to SPOacar, while it takes nine days to bring iv a car from California aud the freight on it is £320."

A 311 itary Post likely to Do Established in Shoshone County— Bath Wallace ami IVardner Are Anxious Tor the Location. Special to The Morning Cai.u Wallace, Idaho, July 22. — Governor Willey has received so many appeals from members of the Idaho National Guard now in the field for furloughs and requests from members of the Legislature for a return of local companies based on business interests that ordeis have been Issued for the return home of the State troops. In relieving the battalion from duty at Warduer Colonel Carlin says in order: "The colonel com manding troops iv the Cceur d'Alene coun try takes occasion to thank the Idaho troops for tlieir good conduct at all times while under his command." Colonel Carliu and staff left Ward ncr this afternoon en route to Wallace to confer with General Curtis on a number of matters pertaining to the prisoners under arrest. The retention here of Uuited States troops is believed to be a foregone conclusion, and already Wardner and Wallace are fighting for the location of the post. Tbe departure of the State troops will necessitate a guard beiug furnished from ttie Uuited States troops to convey prisoners to Boise, a task that should have fallen upon the State troops. It is believed that affairs are in such shape now .hat the civil authorities can successfully cope with any turn events may take by the aid of one or two companies. The remainder of the troops could safely be withdrawn and sent to their respective station-. Colonel Carlin and the troops from Fort Sherman will probably be re tained until the War Department definitely decides to establish a post in tbis district. Confinement in close quarters is beginning to tell on the prisoners, and many of the men are beginning to realize that they stand in a dangerous position. There appears to be unnecessary delay on the part of State officials in serving warrants upon the prin cipal's and then taking them, to Boise for a hearing. MARTIAL LAW MODIFIED.
