WHAT THE MEN SA1

M UK llLOOUSHED IMMINENT.
Why They Are Opposed to the Sher-Iff-.-Anv
Attempt to Install
Deputies Jn the Works
Will Start the
Homestead, Pa., Jury 7. If Sher
iff McCleary attempts toenter the
enclosure surrounding the Carnegie
steel works with a posse of deputies
in the morning, a more serious and
bloody battle than that of yesterday
morning may be expected.
This information was not ob
tained 'from the leaders of the
strike, nor from the committee ap
pointed by them to give out infor
mation to the press, but from the
strikers "themselves. Nearly 100
of them were seen at their homes by
a reporter this afternoon, and they
were of one mind. The works must
stand idle until the strike is de
clared off. The high sheriff, the
Pinkerton men, or the state militia
will not be allowed to take posses
sion. Well Armed and Desperate.
Since the awful encounter with
the Pinkertons the toilers of this
town have become more desperate
and determined than ever. They
have secured from some source a
large quantity of arms and ammu
nition. Those known to be good
marksmen have been selected to act
as a band of sharpshooters. They
will be concealed and pick off the
deputy sheriffs, Pinkertons or mili
tia, as the case may be, as soon as a
landing is attempted.
The strikers are not boisterous,
nor do they show signs of excite
ment. But there is a more ominous
sign, if there is anything of truth in
the saying, a calm precedes a storm.
Fortunatel3' the strikers are not all
Hungarians and Slavs. Fortunate
ly the men in the lead are men who
know their success depends largely
on their bravery.
But the talk of the men them
selves will show which way the
witid is blowing. They gave their
honest opinions, unbiased by any
crowd or agitator, for they were
away from their companions and at
"We will see that the works are not
harmed, and that nothing in the
way of property belonging to Mr,
Carnegie is destroyed, unless it be
the boats used in attempting tq land
officers," was the reply made ly D.
Corker, a steel worker, yesterday
"The managers of the works know
this as well as we do. What they
want is to put the sheriff in posses
sion of the,works and then the coun
ty will be res'posible tor any dam
age that may result from any dis
turbance that may follow. It will
insure him against loss and we
property owners will have it to pay.
You see, as soon as the managers
install a sheriff at the- works, they
will then bring in the 'black sheep.'
They know this may incite the
strikers to riot and that serious
damage to the works may follow.
They know that many of us own
our homes, and that we do not care
to incur heavy taxes to pay for dam
ages done to the works while the
sheriff is in possession. We do not
fear that thePinkertons or any oth
er body of officers will gain posses
sion of the works, but we do fear
Ready to Die If Need Be.
"Not that we are cowaids, for
every man of us is prepared to sac
rifice his life if necessary in this
struggle for what we believe to be
just and right. But we are fearful
of the sorrow it is bound to bring to
many of our homes. We are not
thirsting for blood, but we will not
stand idly by and see the bread
wrested from the mouths of our
wives and children without making
a vigorous effort to prevent it."
This story in substance was re
peated scores of times by men in
all parts of the town and men from
every branch of work at the mill.
Ma ii3T added that arms had been
supplied and that they had secured
plenty ot ammunition to use in
case an attempt is made to put the
works in the hands of the high
sheriff of A lleghany county.
The expression of the men found
backing from the aged paator of
one of the Methodist churches here,
who in a very remarkable sermon
preached over the body.of Johu
Morris, the best known and most
popular of the killed workmen, said
in unmistakable words that in his
opinions the Pinkertons had been
sent here for blood if that were ne
cessary for the non-unionization of
the mills. He gave commendation
to the workmen and evidently is firm
in his belief that to Mr. Frick is to
be attributed all the trouble between
the employers and employed, and
spoke of him in scathing terms as a
man with no more sensebility than
a toad. His speech aside from the
negative feature of the almost un
natural quiet and hush of the town,
was the event of the day.
There were three funerals during
the afternoon and it was not un
naturally expected that they might
culminate in some sort of disturb
ance, but they passed off with all
the decorum that should attend
such a solemn celebration.
Up to a late hour there are no
deaths in addition to those named.
Three men are in a very dangerous
condition and it is doubtful whe
ther or not they will recover.
WHAT THE CARNEGIE STRIKE IS
As we understand the situation at
Homestead three questions are in-
1. A reduction in the scale from
$23 to $23 for 4x4 Bessemer billits.
2. A change in the date of the ex
piration of the scale from Tune 30 to
3. A reduction in tonnage rates
at those furnaces and mills ; where
important improvements have been
made and new machinery has been
added that has greatly increased
their output and consequently the
earnings of the workmen. Where
no such improvements or additions
have been made no reduction is
asked. American Manufacturer.
PATH'S WONDROUS WARDROBE.
Her Collection of Kiueraldit Pats to Shame
the Majority of Royal Gems.
Patti's wardrobe is something that
fashion writers rave over. At every
performance she of course wears the
newest concert costume. In the opera
that follows 6he wears the dress requi
site for the part she plays. The concert
costumes are the productions of the first
Parisian milliner, and one may be sure
that the wily milliner, getting an ordei
from Patti, would exert himself for this
queen of song as he would for no crowned
Her jewels are the most elaborate
worn by any woman outside of royaly,
and even royalty s gems fade before hex
matchless collection of emeralds. In
some concerts Mme. Patti wears a cos
tume of pink and silver brocade, ovei
which is worn a delicate green satin d
imperatrice. With this costume sht
wears a dog collar of emeralds set with
diamonds, a bouquet of roses made of
diamonds and emeralds completely cov
ering the front of her bodice. Also
tiara, garniture and comb of emeraldw
and diamonds. This bit of jeweled orna
ment is said to be worth over $50,000. It
is a peculiarity of Patti's that she will
wear nothing in the way of decoration
but what is absolutely real.
The jewel box and jewels in "Faust'
are her own, and the pearls are positively
real. Her courier, whenever she sings,
is on the stage, waits for madame in the
wings and accompanies her from the
stage to the dressing room that is, when
her careful husband, Signor Nicolini, it
not around. He is very careful of his
precious wife, and she is never on the
stage but that he is an intent observer of
everything that is going on.
Patti's passion, of course, is her appear
ance before the public. She is one of
those creatures who, without the excite
ment of public applause, could hardly
exist. The applause of the public is
positively meat and drink for her.
There is no debutante more eager to
know whether she has done well than is
Patti at this day. She comes off tht
stage smiling and pleased. .
Her eyes sparkle, and the first thing
she asks her husband is: "Well, was
that good? Listen how pleased they
are." On being reassured that she is
the darling of the public's heart, she is
in an ecstasy of pleasure, and for the
next performance she is all the more
eager to do her best. It is this wonder
ful desire to be at her best that uphold.,
her in her magnificent art.
There are few people who have
achieved the fortune, the fame and the
great notoriety that Patti has who would
deny themselves the many human priv
ileges that she does merely to preserve
her voice and to be able to maintain the
matchless charm of her art.
At every hotel where rooms are en
gaged for herself special stipulation is
made and rooms selected for her servants
as well. The price is never an object.
Mme. Patti and suite generally occupy
about ten rooms and a parlor in every
city in which she sings. She gives two
concerts a week, and never travels on
the day she sings. She requires perfect
rest and refuses to speak to any one on
the day of a concert. Spare Moments.
Like a restless, troubled spirit.
Self accused beyond excusing,
becking rest where none la offered.
Vainly striving for release
Writhes the bellbuoy In tbe ocean
As each wave in mad commotion
buffet it without relenting.
Or a whispered word of
Sunbeams may each day caress It,
Or the storm king howl above it.
To each one the wall goes upward
k In a never ending moan.
And the glistening sea galls hear It
As they hover and pass near it.
And the rocky shores repeat it
In a muffled undertone.
Oh, tbe pathos of Its life song.
Changing not as years roll onward
Its one note of weary wailing
Outward borne unceasingly!
Prisoner in Neptune's clasping.
Chafing under cord and hasping
Angel thou of mercy! warning
Countless sails that pass thee by.
Katharine H. Terry in Good Housekeeping
The knack which French photogra
phers, and especially those of Paris,
possess in relieving their sitters of a
constrained and distressed look while
sitting for their portraits has long been
the. envy and perplexity of photogra
phers ' of other nations. An American
photographer, on a recent visit to Paris,
took pains to study the means by which
this very desirable result was reached.
He reports that it all lies in a very
simple device, which well illustrates
the nature of the Frenchman.
When a lady, for instance, la sitting
to a photographer for. a portrait, the
operator does not, in a perfunctory
manner, coldly request her to "Look
pleasant now, ma'am!" He says to her.
in the most natural and graceful man
ner in the world:
"It's quite unnecessary to ask madam
to look pleasant; she could not look
The lady of course acknowledges the
compliment with her most gracious
and highbred smile. "Click I" goes the
camera and the picture is obtained, re
vealing the sitter at her highwater
mark, as it were. Youth's Companion.
How a Prisoner Escaped.
If we will only rightly use little things
it is surprising how much may some
times be done with them. A vizier, hav
ing offended his royal master, was con
demned to lifelong imprisonment in a
high tower, and every night his wife
used to come and weep at its foot. "Go
home," said the husband, "and find a
black beetle, and then bring a bit of
butter and three strings one of fine silk,
one of stout twine, another of whipcord
and a strong rope."
When she came provided with every
thing he told her to put a touch of but
ter on the beetle's head, tie the silk
thread around him and place him on the
wall of the tower. Deceived by the
smell of butter, which he supposed was
above him, the insect continued to as
cend till he reached the top, and thus
the vizier secured the silk thread. By it
he pulled up the twine, then the whip
cord, and then a strong rope, by which
he finally escaped. Detroit Free Press.
The Earth to Be Like the Bloom.
The water of the earth is all destined
to disappear from the surface of the
globe by being absorbed by subterranean
rocks, with which it will form chemical
combinations. The heavenly spheres
exhibit sufficiently striking examples of
such an evolution. The planet Mars
shows what will become of the earth
in some thousands of centuries. Its seas
are only shallow Mediterraneans of less
surface than the continents, and these
do not appear to be very higli; and in
the appearance of the iaoon, all cracked
and dried up, we have a view of - the
final state of the earth for the absorp
tion of the water by the solid nucleus
will be followed by that of the atmos
phere. Popular Science Monthly.
The Modern Way.
In India they drown a great many of
the girl babies. li, is a time honored
custom, but not universally approved
from a therapeutic standpoint. In civ
ilized countries they put corsets on the
girl babies, which brings about the same
results, without the shock, which is a
sure concomitant of the Indian method.
Moreover, babies last longer under the
modern system, and it is especially
prized by people who prefer to keep
their girl babies for a few brief years.
What a Flood Leaves Behind.
The worst feature of a flood is the fact
that the river is apt to leave a deposit of
sand, varying in thickness from one inch
to ten feet, over a large extent of land
that was formerly fertile. In the flood
of 1838 a great many farmers in the
American Bottom on going back to their
premises after the subsidence of the
waters, found their property covered
with river sand in beds so thick that
two or three years elapsed before good
crops could be raised. St. Louis Globe
