The troops arrived by train from
their rendezvous at (Jtu ensburn and

eoininatid of Cieneral Snowden, to
gether with two atlin uns and
three field pieees. Their sudden ar
rival in the absenee of the leaders
of the strikers diseoneerted the pro
gramme for the reception ami the
soldiers evidently did not desire
Htieli treatment from the men whom
they were sent there to keep in or
der. They were received with per
fect respect and here and there an
attempt at a cheer was set up by the
on looking populace.
The troops descended from the
train, formed silently and marched
in perfect order to take possession
of the mills, displayed artillery
ncroH.s the y ononahehi, opposite
the mills, not picket all about the
works and settled the cpiestinn of
taking the town by marching one
company direct to the HtrikerH head
quarters, smother to the vicinity of
the depot and a third to a slight
eminence overlooking anil com

the town, then Homestead was in
the hands of the military and mar

reign of the advisory committee.
The citizens of Homestead are
deeply disappointed that the mili
tia thought it necessary to occupy
the whole town, instead of confining
themselves to the mills, but gaveno
open evidence of the fact. It was a
complete acquiesce in the power of
the state, and they gracefully ac
cepted the inevitable.

strikers' pickets, locate! in the
neighborhood, left their posts and
congregated to watch the soldiers.
The strike leaders at once sent them
back to their stations, telling them
they had no business to leave their
posts, and instructing them not to
let any non-union man or detective
through their lines. The leaders
tohl them the troops would not in
terfere with them in this. Similar
instructions were given the other
watchmen, and the strikers' picket
was re-formed outside of the picket
of the troops.
What They Will Do.
Prnsiii'iv'ii, July 1'.'.-President
Weihe of the amalgamated associa
tion, substantially admitted this
morning that the workmen in all of
the Carnegie plants, to the aggre
gate number of ''M N i, would be
called out if the company attempted
to start up the Homestead mills
with non-union men.
The congressional investigating
committees arrived at noon and held
a preliminary conference with Car
negie's attorney ami others. The
attorney said the company would
like the fullest investigation and
that h'riek would appear before the
Committee ami testily. The com
mttee went to Homestead this after
noon and will begin the taking of
evidence .it 1 p. m.
