CARNEGIE'S - REVOLT.
Reip of Terror in Consepence of
the Great Lockout.
PINKERTON DETECTIVES CRINGE.
The First Bloody Fruits of an Immense
.Crop of Bloodshed.
DBEAD RESULTS ANTICIPATED.
Burning Oil to tha Kirer to Capture
Private Detectives Set on tbe
Cjiicago, July 7. The sreat lockout
in the iron industry in this vicinity has
borne its first bloody fruits. Between a
dozen and twenty Pinkerton officers and
locked-out iron and steel workers are
either dying, dead or more or less seri
ously wounded as the result of an en
counter between tbein yesterday morn
ing. . About 300 Pinkerton detectives
arrived at Pittsburg from the East, and
marched quietly to Monongahela,
boarded barges and started for the Home
stead works, towed by the tug Tide.
The locked-out employes were notified
of this move, and when the barges ar
rived at Homestead 5,000 people, includ
ing men, women and children, were
waiting to meet them. As soon as the
Pinkertons attempted to land, they were
warned off by the men, and a battle fol
lowed. The Pinkertons were armed
with Winchester rifles, and the opposing
crowd chiefly with revolvers. The Pin
kertpns opened Are, and at the first vol
ley two workmen fell. This enraged the
crowd, and they bore down on the Pin
kertons with resistless force. The Pin
kertons fell back, but continued firing,
and finally, the crowd on the bank
retreated, but soon again rallied, and a
bitter war ensued, in which many were
killed. Suddenly forty or fifty detect
ives attempted to jump ashore. The
strikers responded with a sharp volley,
driving the invaders back to tbe semi
shelter of the lower deck. The captain
was carried to the pilot house of - his
steamer. One of his men informed an
associated press man that, although his
wound was serious it was not fatal. A
number of other detectives were more or
less seriously wounded in this encounter,
Then there was a lull in the battle, the
Pinkertons gathering on the lower deck
of the steamer and the workmen on
shore sending a committee to scour
Homestead for ammunition.
Fighting was renewed at 7 a. in., pre
cipitated by another effort by the Pink
erton men to land. , The workmen built
a fortification of steel bars on the river
bank, and over 2,000 men are behind it
It is supposed several Pinkertons were
killed on the boat. Before the pecond
attempt was made to' land, -the officer
in charge announced to the workmen on
the bank that his men. would land if he
had to mow down everybody in sight,
and then ordered them to advance.
They were met by a shower of lead from
the rifles and pistols of the scattered
-workmen. . The officers stood back for an
instant, but rallied, . marching eight
abreast. They endeavored to get ashore,
bnt were driven back. The people
seemed crazed1 by the bloody work, men,
women and children running through
the streets crying for revenge and blood.
" At 11 a. m. the strikers fired a car of
oil standing near tbe works for " the
purpose of burning tbe boat in the
river. In the meantime the cannonade
on the boat continued. ' A steamboat
was sent to take the Pinkertons off the
barge. Firing was kept ' up from the
strikers with fatal effect,. Pinkerton's
captain says: "The men were picked
up in. Chicago and New York They
were a very fair lot, and numbered 200.
I gave them strict orders not to shoot
nntil fired on. When we proceeded to
land a whistle blew, and the strikers
imrnediately-commenced to shoot, and
'to protect ourselves we bad to -return
thefirv Seven or eight-of our iuen
were hurt. I do not know, their names,
The strikers are denounced by friends
of the move for their cowardly actions
They bad a fortification and ' before any
act was made. by the Pinkertons, fired
upon them, and shot them down like
dogs. A flag of truce was displayed by
the Pinkertons and was ehot down. ,' It
was hoisted two or three times with like
result. ' Men were lying in wait on both
sides of the river opposite the barges for
the ' detectives to show themselves,
Every moving object on the barges was
fired on. The conference between the
sheriff. Amalgamated officials and the
Carnegies was fruitless. The outlook is
far from encouraging. Flames from the
burning oil in the river spread along the
water front, and the mills were threat
ened. Several explosions .were heard,
and people fled to the hills to escape the
fire. The actions of the strikers is de
moniacal. .. The ' Pinkertons raised
another white flag at 2:30. The arm of
the man who raised it was hit with a
bullet. This afternoon the strikers cap
tured a 600-gallon oil tank; eet.it on fire
and let it run into the -river, but an ad
verse wind blew it away from the barges.
The cannon are bombarding the barges
every few moments, each shot carrying
away pieces of the vessels. The Pink
ertons seldom return ' the tire. The
Pinkertons are in a dreadful position,
exposed to a perilous fire of bullets, can
non and dynamite. Workmen attached
a hose to an oil tank, to squirt oil on the
boat and set it on .fire. They next laid
natural gaspipes toward tbe boat to send
strong streams of gas to envelop the
boat, and then light it with a torpedo.
Congress, and the state of Pennsylva
nia,. have awakened to a sense of the
situation. . In the house yesterday.
Caminetti, of California, introduced a
resolution authorizing the speaker to ap
point a committee of five to investigate
and report on the cause of the strike

is the finest ever discovered in - any
country, Gen. Grant is cited as author
ity for the statement that the Rogue
river -Indians 'were the best painted
and most neatly decorated tribe in the
country during the time of the war.
These Indians used the natural mineral
paints to e m heirs h their persons with
the insignia of war, and early settlers in
these regions say that these decorations
were indelible, the skins of the Indians
shining with such a glow a year after the
application of paint that the palefaces
could easily see to part- their hair using
the red men as mirrors.

How the Czars Goo Temper ft Ac
counted For. -
FRIENDS WANTED, BUT N.0T ALLIES.
Holding the Peace of All Europe in His.
GERMANY PEAKS THE ALLIANCE
Italy- in Stress for Want of Fundi .,',
Jlenefit of KuHslait Famine.
Mluer Topics. '''.,
Berlin, July 7. It is a great mis
fortune that does not drag a compensa
tory good behind it. . Russia, for in
stance, has been suffering from grievous;
woes, and it may yet appear that those
troubles have inoculated all Europe .
against a greater woe.- The comment
excited by the czar's recent affability
toward his various neighbors has been ,
generally based oh the theory thai
Russia wishes to make friends, but not
allies. There is an obvious advantage
in keeping open several resources, for
getting assistance without definitely
joining fates with any one of them. It
gives the holder of the resources an
opportunity to select at the critical
moment -which one proves strongest.
This may be one secret of the czar's
good temper. But Mr. William E.
Henley, a London editor, has another
explanation to offer, that the czar holds
the peace of Europe in his hand and .
that he realh desires' to keep it in
definitely. Germany, says Mr. Henley,
dare not attack France, and France fears
the triple alliance. And that alliance is
crippled, for Italy would be a weak
fighter. Italy can hardly pay her
soldiers now. Russia would naturally
be the factor most likely to disturb
things, and Russia has on hand &
famine, a financial difficulty and an
ugly political problem to settle. Hence
the czar's antipathy to fighting and
hence his promiscuous chumming. The k
bedevilment of Russia is the safety of
Europe, concludes Mr. Henley. Cer
tainly Russia is very mu.-u bedeviled.
But her misfortunes distressing as
they are may be simplv warding otf.
THE DALIES YoRTAGEV
A Good Streak of Speculation in Secui-
Ing the Rails.
Oregonian. Captain George Pease, .
who is in charge of the work of remov
ing the cargo" of 2,500 tons of steel rails
from the wreck of the British ship Aber- -corn,
which went ashore just north of
Grays harbor about th'ree years ago, (ie
now in Portland. He reports the work :
as being carried out successfully. A
wharf 1,500 feet long, and with a front of
140 feet, has been built from the . shore
out to the wreck, some of the piles being
driven through the sides of the ship.
Two hoisting engines and derricks are
stationed on the end of the wharf, and
as the rails are almost entirely under
water several divers are employed to at
tach the slings to them, and from one to
five rails are hoisted at a time, about 200
being hoisted out each day and sent
ashore on a tramway along the wharf.
Nearly the entire cargo will be saved
and will be .hauled to Grays harbor, six
miles, for shipment. The rails were all
coated ' with coal tar, or asphalt,., and
when this is removed are as bright as
now. Owing to the rails having been
cast away so long there will be no duty
to pay on them, and they will yield a
handsome profit to Mr. Paul Mobr, of "
Spokane, who bought the wreck some
time since.- It is understood that the
rails are intended for the portage rail-.
way at the dalles of the Columbia, which
.was begun some time since. -
