Kill Non Union Men.
HE MADE A CONFESSION.
The Poison Said to Have Boon put
In tha Mons Food by Hired As-sasslns-Union
plicated in the Plot.
PlTTSHi'Kc, P.., Dec. II. A Sun
day paper published a startling
story today of a conspiracy to pois
on by wholesale the non union men
at theCarnegie steel plant at Home
stead, and as a result of which it is
alleged several person lost their
lived while scores of others are suf
fering from the effects of poisonous
drugs. Developments made, im
plicate members of the advisory
committee, tneinbetsof the amalga
mated association and officers of
the other labor organizations sym
pathizing with the locked out men
at Homestead. Today niueormore
persons are under arrest, ostensi
bly on less serious charges, but
really for the purpose of averting
suspicion until others in the nl
leged conspiracy can be apprehend
ed. The only name given i that of
Robert Heatty. who was arrested at
Louisville last night.
It is stated that the chief cook in
side the Homestead mills confessed
to having placed poison in the food
prepared for the non-union men;
that he did so at the instigation of
the striker's committee, and that he
is also under pay from them, as
well as from the Carnegie company.
If he caused deaths and sickness
sufficient to frighien the non-union
men from the mill and compel its
closing he wasto receive $T,000. Two
assistants whom he engaged to aid
him in his plot, it is stated, became
frightened and informed Mr. Frick
of the crime. This led to the arrest
of the chief cook, and as stated
above he made a full confession.
The matter was kept quiet. The
workmen were instructed to get
their meals outside. The cook and
two assistants were kept in the mill
under close surveillance. During
the time that meals were prepared
in the mill a number of workmen
became sick and Charles Glossier
died two weeks after going to I Ionie
stead. Mr. Frick positively refused to be
interviewed on the subject tonight.
E. L. Heck, counsel for the Car
negie Steel company, was seen to
night and confirmed the story of
the poisoning, lie says his infor
niation is that at least six deaths
resulted from poison. A Ilotues
stead druggist and physician are
implicated. The powder was given
to a dog and it died in a lew min
utes. A number of arrests will
probable be made in a few days
Coroner McDowell has not yet been
notified. He will go to Homestead
however, tomorrow, to investigate
the cause of the death of Isaac lur
ries, who died suddenly about two
weeks ago. Juries was a wittness
in the Critchlow case. The coroner
is of the opinion that the death was
due to alcoholism.

Cincinnati, o Dec. 13. A female
footpad is operating in this city.
She is desperate and bold and lias a
male accomplice. Isaac J. Loch, a
tailor, reported to the police today
that Saturday evening, at 8 o'clock,
he was walking in the West End at
Eighth and Mound, when a woman
who had been walking in front of
him suddenly turned, and siezing
him by the wrist, dealt him a
vicious blow with her fist, and then
gave a quick signal, which was re
sponded to by a man who emerged
from an alley. The man struck
Leob, and they were about to rob
him, when he cried for help, and
several pedestrains came up. The
man and woman lied and escaped.
The woman was of medium height,
heavily built and rather respectable
looking. She wore a black dress,
cloak and hat. Two other young
men living in the neighbor of the
attempted robbery have had a
similar experience with the woman
and her male confederate. Those
who have seen the female footpad
are certain! t is not a case of a man
in woman's attire, but a genuine

Hloodhas been flowing freely down
in the Llkhoiu mining region the
ist few days. As the record now
stands, two men have been mur
dered, one lynched, and a faithful
officer of the law lies mortally
wounded. The fust victim of the
murderer was Officer James Hrooks
who was killed at Keystone, on the
Elkhoru River, in an attempt lo
suppress disorder growing out of
a too free indulgence by the miners
in Liquor on pay-day. Officer Dil
lon and Countable Hurtou attemp
ted to regulate a tough colored man
named Cornelius Coffee, when Cof-
ee opened lire on them. Dillon
was shot through the right breast
near the nipple, and died. Con
stable Hurtou received a ball in the
body, but is expected to pull
throuirh with close attention. This
shooting, following so clocely on
the murder of Officer James Hrooks,
stirred up great excitement, and a
close search was made up forColfee
who succeeded, however, in board
ing a Chesapeake and Ohio train,
and was soon over the line into
Virginia. Conductor Griffin recog
nized Coffee on the train and tele
graphed ahead to the officers at
Pecahontas, who arrested him on
the arrival of the train. The West
V'erginia authorities were notified,
and Detective ICugene Robinson
went to Pocahontas, secured his
man and started back to IClkhorti.
When Keystone, the scene of the
tragedy, was reached a mob of de
termined men entered the train,
quietly relieved Robinson of his
man and proceeded to a tree close
by the track. Colfee was dangling
from a limb in u few moments,
while the inch riddled liis body

leaving the corps dangling at the
