that encircled him Hughes was un

Anxious For a Settlement.
It is quite likely- Hugh O'Doniicll
will resign the chairmanship of the
advisory' committee on the Home
stead troubles if he has not al
ready done so, ami the indication
are that the committee if casting
about for a new leader. The break
up was caused by the refusal of the
committee to approve an almost
unconditional surrender in the
fight on hand. Mr. O'Donnell ex
pressed himself as anxious for a
settlement even if he had to be sac
rificed. He authorized two news
paper men, F. I). Madeira of .'lew
York aud ,Hampton of Philadel
phia, to see Superintendent Potter
and ascertain upon what terms the
old men could return to work.
When they had executed the com
mission O'Donnell wanted to bring
them before the committee, but
that body would not admit them.
This rebuff ultimately will cause
O'Donnell's resignation, as he said
he would resign if his colleagues
did not endorse his sentiments.
The mediators called upon .Super
intendent Potter aud wantd to know
upon what terms he would accept
the old employes. lie said there
was no vindictiveness in their deal
ings with their men, but they would
not take back certain objectionable
strife-makers under any circum
stances No names were mentioned
but he said those against whom
criminal charges had been made
were among them. Kven these
might not be rejected if the infor
mations against them proved incor
rect. He further stated that the men
would not be questioned about
membership in any organization
but they would be required to sign
an agreement as individuals fixing
the scale of wages and based on the
$20 billet rate. There would be no
dealings with any association com
mittee, except as provided iu the
agreement for a committee of work
men and officials and workmen to
meet quarterly and lix prices of bil
lets. So men now in the employ
would be discharged if their work
was satisfactory. The mediators
were assured that the places were
being rapidly filled.
The advisory committee refused
to admit the newspaper men, but
they would hear the report through
the chairman. This was refused as
they- had no interest in the matter
except to bring the two parties to
gether. Superintendent Potter was
informed of the result and ex
pressed regrets, a the places of the
old men were being rapidly filled.
Mr. Curry, who was present, took
occasion to deny the report that
Andrew Carnetrie would interfere.
He stated that in a cablegram just
received Mr. Carnegie said he had
ntention of returning to Amer
ica at present and that he would
not interfere with the management
or interpose to settle the strike,

were played on the burning build

headway that the efforts of the fire

absolutely nothing was saved, the

A rough estimate places the value
of the baggage at $1,000, though it
may be in excess of this. No esti
