Homestead, Pa., July 12. The
flight p:iMHfl quietly. All Home
stead was in holiday attire this
morning in anticipation of the mili
tia. It wa. eviectetl the troops
would arrive by daybreak and the
people turned rut in anticipation of
that event, ready ;tt welcome the
blue-couted representatives of the
state with a procession, brass bands,
school children anil llowers, but
the situation became ' somewhat
ludicrous as the hours passed ami
the militia did not appear. The
hands did their best to keep up the
spirits of the multitude, with in
different success. It was 9 o'clock
when the cry went up "The troops
The troops arrived by train from
their rendezvous at Juceiisburjj-aiid
consisted of the Second and Third
brigade, iiiuiiberinp; 3.000 men under
command of General Snowden, to
gether with two gatling guns and
three field pieces. Their sudden ar
rival in the absence of the leaders
of the strikers disconcerted the pro
gramme for the reception c"id tie
soldiers evidently did not desire
such 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 look ing populace.
The troops descended from the
train, formed silently and marched
in perfect order to take possession
of the mills, displayed artillery
across the !onongahela, opposite
the mills, set pickets all about the
works and settled the question of
taking the town by marching one
company direct to the s4-ikers head
quarters, another to the vicinity of
the depot and a third to a slight
eminence overlooking and com
manding the commercial center of
the town, then Homestead was in
the hands of the militaiy and mar
tial law had succeeded thearbitiary
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
'"lemselves to the mills, but gave no
open evidence of the fact. It was a
complete acquiesce in the power of
the state, and they gracefully ac
cepted the inevitable.
The battery acro'ss the river com
mand the whole town as well as the
When the troops arrived, the
strikers' pickets, located 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
told them ie 4 -oops 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.
PlTTSBUKG, July 12. 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 '20,000, would be
called out if the compati- 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 and others. The
attorney said the company would
like the fullest investigation and
that Frick would appear before the
committee and testifj. The com
mttee went to Homestead this after
noon and will begin the taking of
evidence at 4 p. m.
After Non-Union Men.

Still on Guard.
Patrols of the strikers outside of
the town and railroad depots will
be continued, and everj- effort will
be made to keep the Piukerton
watchmen and non-union workmen
out of the town.

must, how will the situation-be
