There was no hreak in the forcea of the lower re ills or the Carnegie plan Is t"dav and tbera is nu other i.'hart'e in the situation. tiotti sulpn are as determtoeu 89 ever to continue the strutrL'lB lu the bitter end and hoth are still confident of ultimately Winnies the light. A non-union wurker employed in the velisviii) pinn was seriously beaten by a parly of strikers early this morn ictf. He hart been to Vaodercrift to spend Sunday and was returning to work " Tbe steel mills nt Monesen. after a lotifct period of inactivity, were roftly put in motion by strike breakers gathered in some of the southern slates, to n.cre mills in the Painter plant were started up and another Urge mill at the Clark property was also operated for the first tinifc There was some disorder in the streets of Monessen during the day, but the loeal pilice never lost coptrol of the detnor.Btrative crowds Bod there was no serioua trouble. The previous developments in the great strike in the p.st four days had uceo ratner in favor of the men. After the Joliet workers swuny into line the Hay View nun at Milwaukee decided Friday by a vote that was made unanimous to obey the strike order. The plant of the Illinois steel eorncany nt Hav View will be shut down indefinitely, and about 1 400 men will be thrown out of worn. At a iti.is9 meeting at Cnicairo Sat urday it was votui that everv iron moulder io tbe citv should contribute 50 cents a dav to the support of tbe men still on strike. This will brirc 12.100 a week into tbe .ink"' fund and will make a siz able addition to the amount which tbe strikers now hare to draw upon A aetermineu effort is now to be made to induce the South Chicago men to reverse their aetioo and join and to break in tbe solid combination of Tbe Can.enie properties. There is prowioi; belief that the L'ood order, whieb has Ix'en gecersl, will not prevail much longer. The trikers show rtstlessnes? and irrita tion at the points wher? they come into contact with non-union men. partv of strike-breakers brought up from tile South by special train were safely delivered in tne steel mill at Monseo. l'a, earlv Sunday mortiirn. he strikers were watch iri; tbe railroads aril river and had expressed a iletrmination to prevent the entrance of the strike breaker... The rcen who hp.nnlej the movement for the steel corporation successfully veiled their actions, however, and linded their charges safelv within the plant hours before it as known definitely bv anv one on the outside tbtt the men had arrived. The milU are cuBrded and the men will be kept or the premises until nil daPfer of trouble ceases. A fence has been thrown ariutid the property and euards have been posted to keep out all intruders. The strikers will undoubtedly make an effort to induce tbe strike breakers to ijuit, and fear is expressed that there will be trouble if any demonstration is made atrsinst tbe men or property The situation there is regarded as very delicate. Presideot Shaffer of the Ama!(;iii atei association is ill. Meanwhile there are rumors that the trust is preparing a profit, sbarine scheme. Its managers will not talk about it. It begins to look is if the steel trust made a serious blunder in or tiering tbe dismantling of tbe iteel works at McKeeeport. Pi, and tbe removal of the industry to another town. The Pittsburg correspondent of the Baltimore Sun sayj it is lie lieved in that citv that "the threat of the trust to move its mills and destroy communities as tbe thing tbat finally induced tbe Joliet men to strike, and, is greatly aiding tbe Amalgamated association leaders to recruit, in the Carnegie mills." Very likely. OTBEK LABOIl TltOCBI.ES. Do You Send '.iO.UOOCarrlaa;. Men Shut Ont at Clmln n.il Th Work ofa Trim. Cincinnati. (). Aug 19.

Another letter from F W Cross of South HoyaUtoti, Mass, who was a witness at the Inquest, encloses one from William li'iisseluer Williams of Schenectady, N Y, Bristol's comrade and tent mate of the Spanish-American war, who says: "I never saw Sidney walk In bi sleep, but more than once when we slept side by side in camp I was suddenly awakened to llnd him on his knees bending over me anil holding me. cm tnese occasions I never attempt ed to wake him up, but simply kept still, and In a minute or two lie won, d drop back ioto his place. 1 do not know how many times that Imppeoed, but probably about three times during that summer." Mr Crawford tuppleinents the above letter with tbe following signed staiemed made to the Hartford cor respondent of the Springfield Mr-publi can : I became acquainted with Sidney Gray Bristol in October, 189S, ahea he entered our class from Williams college. He had before him the ex tremely difficult undertaking of car rying a heavy course of study and at the same time earning money t'i pav all expenses. It ws co doubt the overnork ai.d overetudy occasioned by these circuuistaoces tbat at nigbt caused the mental disturbances n-en- tioned below. I list) before rue nearly the same problem, . though a considerable acquaintance in New Haven made my way much easier than his. Our similarity of circum stances threw us together, and, need ing a roommate, I was glsd to take him in. We occupied No liKi, North college, a room unlike ill others in tbe building in tbat tbe partitions between the bedrooms had I een re moved. Thus we slept in the same room, and .1 became familiar with Mr Bristol's nigbt habits. The electric light a few rods from our west win dow made it possible to tee bis ac tions plainly. In tbe first place, it was Mr Bris tol's regular babit to visit tne toilet room once in the tight. Whether be awoke at this time or not. I do not know. But of bis somnambulistic habits I do know, both from observa tion and from instance, which he re lated to me. While awake he refused to waste energy in worrying. In sleep however, he apparently worried over both his finanuiiil dilticuHics and his lessons for frequently talked aloud of these matters, sometimes intelli gently, sometimes only iocoberently he would arise and attempt, to recite a lesson. Occasional!) he would rise entirely. It was my custom on all these kccseions to speak to him occe. 1 will relate two iostances which 1 remember distinctly, on account of tteir extreireaess. One night we had ben studying our ethics lesson acil he had com plained of its incomprehensibility. Io the nigbt lie w a lieu me by suddenly silting up on the edge of his beo. Then he made a gesture ard eaia: Logic ana etrics all mixed up. nackward and forward acil everv wav everybody's hats sc. tiered all over. " l.ugtied ana said, lee, nut never iniuil. Bris; we'll fix tbat .11 right ic the morning, " and laid dow n again. I hied bis words in tuv mind, in order to remember them. In t ho morn icg he knew nothing of the incident. Another night lie awoke me bv tud- deuly rising in his bed. He gave a quick glance all round, and then sprang toward iny bed. fell along directly upon me. I put up n-y hands and caught htm as be fell, and heard him siyicg. "Stop thetn! Stop them'' 1 quieted him and got back to bed. In tbe morning told him what be bad done. At first he could remember nothirg about it, but fioallv he re niFinhered that be bar dreamed. He had dreamed, be said, of having a large amount of mony, all in bank notes These were beiog blown out of the window, and he was trying to stop them. The wicdow toward the electric light was just over my bed. Knowing the facts stated aiiove, I can easily credit Mr Cressey's story as beirg as near the truth as one suddenly awakened and alarmed could e expected to remember. However, would like to advance an explana tion, which to me seems most prol.- il.le. If- is this: That Mr Bristol had been up making bis usual visit to the toilet room, anil was returning to bed. In doicg so aroused and alarmed Mr Cressey, who seized the revolver. Tninking to save himself, Mr Bristol caught bis wrist and tried to tike the gun from bis friend. This only increased Mr Cressey's alarm and led to tne fatal struggle which fol- loxed. lhis solution seems reason able and is so nearly in eccord with Mr Cressey's storv us not to ccttradict it in my point.
