The information states that the defendants, who are inhabitants and residents of the .commonwealth of Pennsylvania, "did ordain, prepare and levy, war against, the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to the end that the constitution, laws and authorit}- were defied, resisted and subverted; and that the said defendants, on" t July 1, with hundreds of others, armed and arrayed in warlike manner, that is to say, with .guns, revolvers, cannons, swords, knives and clubs, did unlawfully, maliciously and traitorously assemble together ia the borough of Homestead, in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and then and there with force and arms did falsely and- traitorously and 'in hostile and warlike manner array themselves in .insurrection and rebellion against the commonwealth of Pennsylvania contrary to' the duty of allegiance and fidelity of the said defendants. ' TFarrantB Issuod. Chief Justice Paston at once issued warrants for the arrest of "the accused' and officers were dispatched by the sheriff to Homestead to serve them.

At the station a crowd of 150 angry men. assembled -u'ith astonishing rapidity and their determined looks caused apprehension. Two deputies tried to keep them back, but by the time the train arrived they had almost surrounded the group of prisoners and officers. When the train pulled out a .sullen jeer of defiance went up and Chairman' ira-wford said: "They can persecute, us, but they can't make us go to work." Moch Uneasiness. • .. Business is practically 'Suspended, and ansious groups stand at every corner discussing the latest blow. "What docs it mean?' 7 That is the. query on every tongue.. The 'thought of the state of Pennsylvania interfering in the struggle is frightening the sturdy workers. They would, accept with derison murder, riot.or conspiracy suits brought by the Carnegie Steel Company^ but to be arrested by the state, and on a charge of treason, ;hat .is different What the result will be no one here attempts to predict, what the effect will be is risible on every face—desperation. • Men soberly propose to their fellows that ;hey secure a band and flags and march .nto Pittsburgh and apply en masse for admission to jail to save further uneasiness and to end at once all suspense. Fully if ty strikers were interviewed and bitr «rly denounced the arrests, claiming. :hat the sole object for the constant prosecutions is to terrify them -into gong to work. Levrts In Custody.
