Pittsbckq, July 25 Chairman Frick
did not come down to bis office this
morning, aa he jokingly assured his as
sociates lie would as he was carried to
the ambulance Saturday night, nor is it
probable that he will be seen at his
desk for many months. He passed a
restful night, despite the closeness of
the air. His extraordinary vitality
was strikingly demonstrated as yester
day, although it was the hottest day
experienced for ten years, his wounds
apparently gave little trouble, while
mentally he was bright and active. The
wound was examined and dressed this
morning but there was not the;faintest
trace of blood poisoning or of any
greater amount ol inflammation
than would be expected under the
circumstances, and the results of the ex
amination are decidedly encouraging
both to the surgeons and the patient.
After the examination Frick asked for
the morning papers and read with inter
est the accounts of the movements of
the would-be assassin during Sunday.
In interviews had with them as to the
future of the sufferer the surgeons
eay it will not be possible
lor him to leave his bed even to walk
about the room for a month or six weeks
at the earliest. The fact was developed
that Saturday Frick received in the
morning mail a letter ivhich informed
him that he would die before the next
day. He passed it to his associates witft
the joking remark: "iuave but 24 hours
to live." He said alterwards he
placed the missive in a pigeon-hole in
his desk. He referred to the matter
last night, and it is being investigated.
It is not thought to have any connec
tion with Bergman's act. The would-be
assassin was quietly taken last night
from the central station to the county
jail, where he will remain until the
trial in September, lie was Dooked lor
felonious assault. The maximum pen
ally for this is but seven years, but
other charges are to be ad lo I.
Chief of Police Omora, of Pittsburg,
culled at headquarters tins forenoon and
was closeted some time with Chief In
spector Steers in regard to the attempted
assassination of Frick. City detectives
are hard at work on the case.
I'lTTt-iiuuG, July 25 A man whose
name the police refuse to give was ar
rested this afternoon as an accomplice
of Bergman, the attempted assassin of
The situution here and at Homestead
is perfectly quiet this morning. All par
ties have settled down to the fact oi a
long siege and are preparing to wait it
out. Secretary Lovejoy announces that
the company is in no hurry to start tl.e
mills here, and will devote attention
first to Homestead.
Bergman, the would-be assassin, when
told this morning that Frick would re
cover, said : "Well, I'm sorry for that."
Bergman says he was born in St. Pe
tersburg, Russia, and educated in one
of the leading colleges there. When
told that the people considered his act
most cowardly and that he had no sym
pathizers, he replied : "1 know tne peo
ple be with me, and am sorry I made a
bad job of it. 1 am willing to stand the
consequences." Bergman declared that
he had no confederates. He asked lor
the newspapers, and said he wanted to
see what they said about him.
Robert Sterling, a starved, Bhabbily
dressed young fellow from Chicago, who
was arrested on Second avenue last
night while telling a small crowd that
he had walked all the way from that
city to kill Carnegie, will be sent to the
work house today.
PiTTsiiuuGii, July 25 The Westbound
fast mail on the Pennsylvania road
brought two hundred non-union men for
the Homestead mills from Philadelphia,
New York and Boston. They will be
taken to the mills this afternoon. They
are said to be skilled iron and Bteel
PiTTHHURn, July 25 Hugh O'Donnell,
the leader in the Homestead strike, was
released on bail t .is morning.
The action of Judge Magee in admit
ting O'Donnell to bail is just whut was
anticipated by those who heard the
evidence adduced by the prosecuting
attorney. The court reviewed the evi
dence at length, cited the law in the
question and announced as ins conclu
sion that no case of murder in the
first degree could be made out
against the prisoner. It was
apparent, he said, O'Donnell
was not an actual participant although
there are grounds for belief that he w.is
a sympathizer, but there is evidence
enough to justiiy an indictment for mur
der in the secoud degree. He hoped,
however, when the deiendant came to
trial, he could show he was in no wise
participating in the atfray that had re
sulted in the loss of so many iiveB. It
was the court's duty to admit the de
fendant to bail and that bail would be
fixed at $10,000. .
It was received with a buzz of satis
faction from the crowded court room.
It was fully a minute before they could
apt silence. It was then announced that
no evidence would be offered against
Boss, Foy and Allen and bail in the
same amount was fixed for each defend
ant. The bail was promptly given for
all four prisoners, and they were re
London, July 25 Andrew Carnegie is
at Bannock lodge 35 miles Irom tele
graph, and it has been impossible to get
any statement from him in regard to
Homestead affairs or the shooting
of Frick. He refuses to answer
telegrams or letters. There is
much feeling against him here. A. large
meeting of laoorers adopted resolutions
Btrongly condemning Carnegie's course
in regard to the Homestead troubles and
expressed the hope that the workmen
would contemptously refuse any lurther
philauth opic giftB from him,
the Striker. wliNot Allow the R.im
load Mill! to He Workid.
Homestead, July 27 It is evident
the Carnegie com pay is able to operate
the mills under the protection of the
militia but there are other means of
righting, according to a member of the
advisory committee, who said: "We will
not under any circumstances permit
those millB to run it here is any agency
which may be employed to prevent it.
We have already selected men who will
go into those millsasliast as they can se
cure employment, who are instructed
and sworn to carry out our
orders in consummating
policy which we have agreed
upon. hen we are sure there ia no
longer any hope for us, our representa
tives in me mill win place explosives
where they will do the most harm to
the machinery. We have definitely de
termined that the mills shall not bi op
erated by non-union men. and one of
the principal ways to prevent it is to
contract or wreck the property. 1
might say a great deal more, but under
the circumBtauces I have gone as far as
I dare."
Hugh O'Donnell says he did not
authorize correspondents to treat with
the Carnegie people with a view to end
ing the trouble by the surrender of the
men. The correspondents took a jok
ing remark of his in earnest and en
deavored to negotiate a settlement.
Pittsburg, Pa., July 27 The police
are keeping a strict lookout for an
archists, inspector McKelvey save
Bergman is only a tool of conspirators.
The anarchists were getting ready to '
carry out gigantic schemes, and an at
tempt would have been made on the
lives of several prominent citizens.
This afternoon two anarchists,
Charles Finater and August Tirnopk, of
Allegheny, called at the station to
see Bauer. They were arrested. It is
just learned an attempt was made to
blow up Carnegie's union mills in this
city. During the absence of the engi
neer some one tuined on the unlighted
gas in the furnaces. The discovery of
the lact was made in time to prevent an
explosion. One hundred and fifty men
were in the department at the time.
Many lives would have been lost. Bauer
Bays there are 500 anarchists in Pittsburg
and 1,000 in Western Pennsylvania.
Frick passed a most satisfactory night.
Pittsburg., Pa., July 27 The Carneg'e
company, alter consultation w ith the dis

there is no evidence sufficient to warrant
any steps being taken against llerr Most
at the present time.
He Shot a Mao Year Ago and the Man
Geti a Pension.
Boise, Idaho, July 22 An incident
which has just come to light here will
probably lead to the investigation of
one George Hunter's right to receive
favors at the hands of the federal gov
ernment. During the Nez Perces Indian
war, which raged in Idaho during the
year 1877, Hunter was captain of a com
pany of volunteers and one of hia lieu
tenants was a bright young fellow
named Eugene Wilson.
Hunter, it is said, was a hard man to
serve and he and his lieutenants fre
quently indulged in bitter quarrels. It
is lurtlier stated that Hunter was a nre-
eater and that one day he savagely at
tacted Wilson, who had to shoot in order
to preserve his lile. lhe bullets from
his pistol entered one of Hunter's arms,
but he speedily recovered. Now, h w-
ever, as a reward lor a serious wound re
ceived upon the field of battle, Hunter
is an attache ot the pension othce in
Washington city, drawing a monthly
salary of $77. The lieutenant who shot
him is said to be lamiuarly Known as
"Gene" Wilson, and is now a candidate
for gubernatorial nomination in the
State of Washington.
iLDiit sh Subjects L.auf-uish lu a Mexican
City ok Mexico, July 26 Messrs.
Chihen, Wyniun and Sharlock, three
Englishmen who are languishing in Be
len priBon here on suspicion of having
caused the death of their friend, host
and countryman, Douglass Crosby, are
fated, it would seem, to Buffer all
the iniquities of the law's de
lay. The dead man stated,
in his ante - mortem declaration,
before the local authorities that he had
shot himself accidentally. This state
ment was corroborated by his three
friends who were the first to discover
him after his fatal accident. Since their
incarceration, no evidence has been
found to the contrary, yet the judge who
has charge of the investigation has re
fused to grant the prisoners their
liberty, which has been demanded
by their counsel on writ of
habeas corpus. The judge ruled that
the prisoners had failed to dispel the
suspicions entertained against them
from which it would seem that they
were expected to prove them
selves innocent instead of the prose
cution proving their guilt. The result
of the investigation conducted so far has
not been made public, and it is believed
that no discoveries have been
made pointing to the guilt
of the prisoners or the
nrosecution would have entered charges
against them. The English colony
manifests strong interest in the case,
and much sympathy is expressed
for the prisoners, who are looked
upon as victims of an arbitrary
and unprecedented abuse of judicial
authority. No one will credit the
abominable suspicionentertained against
them by the court, and Sir Lionel Car
den, the British charge d'aifa.res, will
make formal demand for their liberty
from the government in a few days.

Harrisburg, Pa., July 27 The pun
ish.nent of Private Lams, who was
shamefully treated by Colonel Streator
for proposing three cheers for Bergman,
the assailant oi Frick, is the subject of
much unfavorable comment here among
civilians and they denounce it in very
plain language. Governor Pattison re
fuses to be interviewed on the subject.
He has not as yet received the protest
of the newspaper correspondents calling
for investigation.
Bishop Thomas McGovern, the head
of the Harrisburg diocese of the Roman
Catholic church, has written a protest of
Lams' punishment to the Daily Patriot.
He bitterly denounces the act as a dis
grace to civilization and aa tending to
have a demoralizing effect upon the

Citizens In Pursuit of a Dangerous
Hand of Outlaws.
Uniontown, Pa., July 27 One of the
most daring and dangerous bands of out
laws, next to the Molly Maguires, that
ever persecuted the citizens of this
State, waa until last Friday led by Jack
Cooley. Cooley's band robbed travelers
and the farmers of the surrounding
country, fleeing to the coke regions
whenever a sheriff's posse would start
in pursuit. Once in ti e coke regions it
was impossible to make an arrest. A
trap was aet for Cooley, and last week
he waa captured and shot. His last
words were: "See that my death is
Today the facts in a horrible crime
came to light from the sheriff who ar
rested a man named Rankin, one of
Cooley's band, lor stealing a flock of

said to have been chief of the outlaws.
The sheriff' secured irom an eye witness
the story of the methoda pursued by the
band in avenging tne ueatn oi meir
leader. After the theft of the flock of
sheep, the outlaws drove on to this city
where they sold the flock to a butcher.
With the proceeds liquor was bought
and the men revelled in the foreat dur

Last evening the band, numbering a
dozen men, proceeded to the house ol
Wesley olBier, near nayaentown. oieier

he was seized by the outlaws and
pinioned. Hia only child, a young girl,

I am in receipt of yours of the 13th

China, stop at your port. Let me say at
the outBet that this steamship company

Neither the railroad company nor any

The stock of the steamship company is
owned exclusively in Great Britain, and
its management is in the hands oi Mr.

that we cannot do business without

view of showing the tourists and pasaen

assumed that there is plenty of time and
of opportunity for them to see euch

that there was no law to prevent pasBen

they wanted to look at Seattle they
could get off here on their way back and

that Sullivan made in this morning's

Beady to Hack Up His Jeclsloa of a
Horse Kitoe W.tli His Fists.
Fort Dodoe, Iowa, J uly 25 The Rev.
Mr. Tyrrel, pastor oi a church at Clar
ion, occupied a seat in the judges' Btand
Saturday and officiated as time keeper
in a race between two local trotters. The
spectators questioned his decision,
whereupon he promptly pulled oil' his
coat and announced that he could whip
any man who called him a liar. Mutual
friends prevented the affair irom going
further, but it has naturally caused
mucn attention.
Mr. Tyrrel ia a well-known lover of
last horaea, but ao long as he took no
part in racing his congregation did not
object. Now many of his fiock are in
dulging in harsh criticism of his conduct
and the matter may be brought before
the next coni rence.

from Puget Sound to Mare Island, where
the damages caused by hre will be re

the ttugiish and Ueruiau crops Hare
San Francisco, July 28 William
Darby, hop buyer for Bass & Co., of
Burton-on-frent, England, probably the
largest brewers in the world sa.d yester
day : "1 don't know where we are to get
our hopa this year. For many years the
county ol Kent has been the point of
hop producing in England, but except
last year when the crop was very large
the yield lias become steadily smaller,
compelling us to use hops grown
in Germany and other coun
ts ies in Northern Europe. American
hops contain a larger percentage of ex
tract than the European variety, but
until quite recently they were care
lessly cured and badly packed and con
sequently sold for lar less than they
would had proper care been exercised.
This year the English and German hop
crops are a lailure owing to too mucli
heat early in the growth of the plant
and the wet weaiher just as
the blossomB came. The hop louse,
too, alter an absence oi a
year or two, reappeared, bo that
the crop this year is the smallest lor
some years. In the Eastern Bfaiea the
intensely hot weather that has prevailed
for weeks has done much damage while
in eastern Oregon where some of the best
hopa in the country are grown the cold
dry weather ior the last few weeka has
greatly retarded the growth and de
velopment ot the plant. I expect to
see higher prices for hopa than have
ruled lor aome years."

Memphis, Jnlv 27 In the trial of Alice
Mitchell for the murder of Freda Ward,
thedeiendant took the stand in her own
defense. She told the Btory of the kill
ing substantially as heretofore re
hearsed. She admitted her infatuation
for Freda and sai . she tried twico belore
to kill her but was prevented once by
the racr sticking in her pocket and
once by the publicity of the
place in which she found her.
She told of her intention of
marriage to Freda and how she pro
posed to raise a moustache by shaving.
She doclared that she used to like Miss
Joe Ward, Freda's sistor, until she went
on the stand and swore to a lot of lies
about her. Now it would not be safe
for Misa Joe to thrust herself in the
witness' power. Miss Mitchell occasion
ally gave evidence of a loss of somo of
her heretofore remarkable Belf-posses-aion.

The Faribault System
Adopted in thi Town of Faribault and
at Stillwater, but Now It Has Been
Given Up at the Latter Place Arch
bishop Ireland Favored It.
St. Paul, Minn., July 28 The famous
Faribault plan to fight for which Arch
bishop Ireland went to Rome, has
proved a lailure at Stillwater, Minn. It
is announced that St. Michael's parish
of that city, which haa concluded the
past year under the new plan, will con
duct its schools aa parochicals this year.
The origin oi the schoo.a is aa lollows :
On the 22d day of October, 1891,
Father James Conry, priest ol the lead
ing Cathonc church ut F'aribault, sub
uiitied a verbal proposition to the board
oi education oi the city of Faribault ior
merging the parochial schools oi that
church into the public school system.
The board, which was composed of
three Proiestante and one Catholic, re
ceived the proposition with much sur
prise, and after fully weighing the mat
ter it waa decided by a unanimous vote
to accept fattier Conry'a proposition.
One month later, Father Corcoran, of
Stillwater, having obtained Archbishop
Ireland's permission, made a tender of
the parochial schools of St. Michael's
church to the public school board of
that city, and that tender one week later
was alBO accepted.
Then came the storm. The matter
would in all probability have caused but
little discussion il the Alinneapolia Min
isterial Association had not had its at
tention called to the matter, and at once
prepared a lengthy and fearful document
calling upon all people of Protestant
iaith to witness the bold attempt of the
Roman Catholics to inculcate the prin
ciples of their faith in the minds oi ail
young children, and thus seduce them
from the religion of their forefathers.
"It is but a bold plan of the pope's,"
they cried, "to gain a strong foothold in
the public schools of America, and if
permitted, a second Inquisition is not
lar away."
At the time of the transfer the state
ment waa made by the ministerial asso
ciation above mentioned that there was
a tacit understanding that the nuns
teaching in the schools should use their
time and the buildinga devoted to
school instruction at other than school
hours for teaching the doctrines of the
Roman Catholic church. This state
ment is true as concerning Stillwater,
but it ia not true about Faribault. On
the contrary no religious instruction
whatever is given, although it is well
known that Protestant schools over the
entire country give a short Bible and
religious iesBon every morning before
the regular exercises ot tne day are
The nuns do the teaching, and have
general charge, except over Bpecial
brunches where it is necessary to bring
about the best results to employ sp cial
teachers. The Stute prescribes the text
books, and pays the teachers, and super
intends the classes during school hours,
as is done in all other schools in this
Archbishop Ireland knew nothing
whatever about the mutter of the trans
fer when Father Conry submitted his
proposition to the Board of Education.
Father Conry probably knew what
Archbishop Ireland's views were in re
gnrd to such matters, as it is not likely
that ho would have taken the full re
sponsibility on himself.

men of capital and possibly ot repute at

task to Miil to the French group off tho
coast of Newfoundland and there take
board the dregs from tho Boston

carried down tho gull dtslributing it
