Bituation in this inhospitable , turbulent
town becoming. Mob rule has prevailed for
clmast a week , and mnro uneasy set of mon
than Chairman Hugh O'Dannell ana his
associates on the advisory committee
would bo hard to find. They
look upon the town as rcstlui :
over a slumbsrlng volcano , liable at any
time to break forth in H tcrnblo riot.
Last week tne advisory committee was dis
solved , anu for three days the town ran its
eeir. Evoty striker and ruffian in town was
n aclf-appointed policeman with almost the
power of the czar. At lenglh
affairs i cached such n point that a stranger' *
life was not safu ithin the borough. Tno
loaders saw tho'.r control was fast ebbing
nwny , nnd hoping to regain their power the
advisory committee reorganized and an
nttomot has been made to resume con

more intelligent , but tbo nordo of vicious
hoodlums w no have enjoyed a few days of

The efforts of Mr. O'Dsnnoll und his capa

suspicion. It is not uncommon
to near complaints against the restraints es
"Wo can govern ourselves nnd we want no
committee to tell us what to do , " Is the pro-
Ati example of how the turbulently In

noon when Chairman O' Douncll came 10 iho

"Thill's Just why I came in. " responded
the ruffian. " 1 want lo know something

HOMKSTKUI , Pa. , July 10. Tbontmoiphoro
ot Homestead is pirvaded by mild symptoms
of hysteria these days. The intense str-ln
of excitement nnd expectancy to which the
ttriuar * have bun subJjjtoJ for the pan
week is beginning to till on the men unlll
the fueling but rjjatud suoh a lonsion that a
renewal of hostlllitoi would bj a positive
teliqf. Alarm after alanc has owept ever
the town and the mon huvo so often respond jtl
to those alarms that ttio scramble of a telegraph -
graph Day through tso strjats ii aimit
mfllcluiii for a call to armt. At various
tnnoj last night and during tac cor.y houri
of mornmv' reports were circulated that the
PitiKerious were at thi clt/'e outskirts
end the Kcnxmblu that succocilo.l those an-
uouucoiiH'ius would have been ludicrous butler
lor the gravity of tha situation. Men ru boa
to ihelr homoi , and propirod ths'aiiflves for
the Itupetidlng bmlo , only to bo apprised
an hour Utor thnt the report was f&lso , and
that His Pinkerton invasion wai again rclo-
Katml to the future. So oftoa has iho cry of
"wolf" tfono out that when tha true alarm
does come It uny fall ou unhosdlntf oarj , and
the enemy oo within the city limits before
the call to battle Is aoundud.
Think Aniitliur lluttlu Iiu'iltulilc.
There U uo doubt of the settled conviction
In the ulud of the atrikoH thai mother bat
tle is inovltablc. They have received at least
a dozen teloerams from various points , slit-
log that tbo Plnkcrtons are moblllzlne de
tachments at ns many points , preparatory tea
a grand debut of this private nrmy upon tha
city ol Hem slcaJ and Un loutarj of the
strikers have accepted most of this inform ilion -
lion as authentic nnd concluded that
tbo decisive struggle is not far dis
tant. The estimates of tbo strength of
this Plnkorton Hrmy U bv a mysterious
unanimity ot opinion fixed ntSOO mnn , and
the strikers foe I , confident that with the
nrms at their command nod their strength
of from Jl.WX ) to fi.lKM able-bodied men , they
can easily repulse this force. Of cno thing
there can bo no doubt another Invasion nt
the Pitikcrlons will oa followed ov another
batlle , moro sanguinary , moro terrible , but
moro decisive than thu Hi-it. When its
smoke clears nxvay Iho strikers will bo sub
merged nnd Carnegie once moro nine of tbo
iron region , or the power of the Pinkertons
will bo forever broken , and tdo industrial
nrmy of Homestead a mliilant organization
which no force but the military ot the state
or nation can subdue.

The strikers nro psrfectlng their organizi-
llon loday and appear to > o gaining strencih
In every way with the exception of the
press. Tno prominent nowspapars of the
country , of wnlch copies are being received
in this city , appear to bo resenting the
espionage ai > a restrictions imposed upon their
represontalives. Tno leaden of the mill
xvorkers now realize thnt the allcmpt to cx-
orcUo ownership over the press dispatches
has been the most soriouserror. Everything
that cun be dune by Hugh O Djnnell to pro
tect the newspaper men from harassing in
terference has been done , audit Is safe to say
that so long us bo Is the dominant spirit no
moro reporters will bo ordered out of town.
O'Donnell is in advance of hi * lellows , and
Iho spirit of toleration whlco he evinces Is not
shared by many others in the rank and
file. The great majority of the strikers are
still disposed to regard the ncwspapar nun

thn is Irritating to the nowspapsr mon , and
u hen the strikers make their uu U assertion
that p acc reigns at Homestead and parfect
freedom maintains on every hind the vic
tims of their martial law methods wonder
how. If that bo true , they should have boon

that everything ibat was done was to the In

Tlio stumbling : block in tbo legislative bill

to iufusB a mira confidj-it tone into the m ir-
ket. Tbo crop reports were daily affording
more definite protniso of an abandint har
vest and tno doubts about ludia-t corn were
diminishing ; the tra'l'.c returns ot the west-
em roads wera sho.vmg gratifying gams ;
the semi-annual reports of railroad con
struction wcro exhibiting a commend
able conservatism in th&t branch of enter
prise ; and LSradstreot's returns of failures ,
for the first half of the year , showed a falling
off of J ) u-r ctiut in liabilities , compared with
Ib'Jl , which indicated an important Improve
ment in the intrinsic condition of trade
throughout the countrv ; whilst the results of
the party conventions were regarded as un
usually free from nnstjttllng suggestions ,
whichever of the candidates may ultimately
receive the choice of the people.
At this conjuncture of rhopeful conditions
came the revelation thnt the free colnase
mania bad gained the ascenduncv in tbo sen
ate. The shock was alt the greater from iis
being so little expected , and Its effects were
the moro marked because Ihoro was no assur
ance llmt tha senate hill would not bo ac
cepted by the house of representatives. The
first effect appeared in Tuesday's market ,
when largo sale * were made ou London
account as well us on orders Iroin both local
and interior holders , causing u decline of two
to three points.
This brcan of confidence is to bo attribu
ted rather to the indirect bearings of tbo
senate's action than to its real intrinsic im
portance. It will bo viovod by surface ob
servers as revealing now accessions of
strength to the frec-comago movement , and
therefore may disturb foreign confidence in
our securities , causa them to DO returned
homo nnd correspondingly derange our fiaan-
clal relatlu.is with Kuropo and augment tbo
current exports of gold about which the
market is b-coming Increasingly sensitive.
As to the InnudJIalo future of prices thera is
considerable uncertainty. Speculation In
stocks has baen paralyzed by the silver oil' ' ,
and In crain and cotton by the anti-option

silver agitation , lenders already showlnc a

Tno situation , ihnroforc , Is ono that calls for
prudence , no matter how roseate iho market
uny scorn in certain directions ; nnd until
the horizon is cleared of lhsa two draw

at about 10 p. m. a stable nt the head of Long

was blowing a strong gala from the west.
IJ\ln hod not fallen for three weeks , and the
buildings of the town , which were of wood ,
with the exception of these on Water street ,
were extremely Inllammablo. The houses
adjoining the stable rapidly cunght lira and
in a few minutes Long's Hill was a sea of
flames. Human effort was powerless to cope
with the fire. So rapid was the work of de

a sufficient number ot housjs to mauotlo
fire break. The paoplo secmoa paralyzed.

About 8:40 : o'clock tha Wator-Mdd rnorcan-

began to get out from the piers to the middle
of the harbor. The Anglo-American
telegraph offi.-e becntno untenantable

outside world was cut oil. The fire
was irresistible. Five hundred people
who baa the temorltv to remain indoors
wcro compelled to lloo to tbo rear and mane
thnir escape aboard vessels. The buildings
on Water street were built or stone and
brick but fell almost as quicklv as the
woolen structures in other streets. The
