July 6, 1892. This was it. The strikers would start fighting everypony that got in their way. First, they were going to kill the Pinkerton's on the Monongahela River.
Jack: There they are. Shoot them! *Shoots Pinkerton ponies*
James: *shooting at Pinkerton ponies*
Pinkerton Ponies: *getting shot* AAH!!! *Falls into river*
Pinkerton Major: Return fire! *Shoots at strikers*
Jack: To the plant!! *Runs*
Strike Ponies: *Follow Jack*
Pinkerton Major: They gave up already.
But the strikers didn't give up yet. They were going to blow the launch whistle to alert the plant. This would get thousands of ponies to go to the steel mill.
Pinkertons: *Park boats on land*
Pinkerton Major: After them everypony! They couldn't have gone far! *Runs to plant*
Pinkertons: *Following the major*
Random ponies: *arriving at the mill*
Martha: Why are آپ doing this?
James: I'm sorry. This wasn't what I wanted, believe me. But if I don't do what Jack, and Larry say, I die.
Martha: Then die as a good pony. Not one that caused violence, and murder.
James: *Hugs Martha* I'm sorry. I promise when this is over, everything will get better.
Jack: James, get over here! The Pinkerton ponies are coming!
James: I love you, and tell Toby, and Melissa that I love them too, if I don't survive. *Runs to Larry*
Martha: *Goes home*
Jack: We gotta get into Fort Frick. *Climbs over fence*
Pinkertons: *Shooting at Jack*
Larry: I got a better idea.
Jack: *Gets to other side*
Larry: *Knocking on fence with gun* Cover me!
Strike ponies: *Shooting Pinkertons*
James: *Knocking on fence*
Soon, the fence fell over.
Larry: Good job. Now, let's find Jack. *Runs to Jack*
James: *shooting Pinkertons*
Pinkerton Ponies: *return fire*
James: *Dodging bullets, and runs to Jack*
Strikers: *Follow James*
Pinkerton Ponies: *Shoot one strike pony*
Strike Pony: *Falls on ground, and dies*
James: What are آپ doing Jack?
Jack: Using the water میں تپ, تپ *Shoots water at Pinkertons*
Larry: Good god man, آپ shot nearly all of them.
The Pinkerton ponies that didn't get frozen were shot to death.
Pinkertons: Ok, we surrender!
Strike Ponies: *Cheering*
James: Finally. It's over.
On July 7, the strike committee sent a telegram to Gov. Pattison to attempt to persuade him that law and order had been restored in the town. Pattison replied that he had heard differently. Union officials traveled to Harrisburg and met with Pattison on July 9. Their discussions revolved not around law and order, but the safety of the Carnegie plant.
The company had waged a سیکنڈ front in state court, and was winning. On July 18, 16 of the strike leaders were charged with conspiracy, riot and murder. Each ٹٹو was arrested for one night and forced to post a $10,000 bond. The union retaliated سے طرف کی charging company executives with murder as well. The company men, too, had to post a $10,000 bond, but they were not forced to spend any time in jail. One judge issued treason charges against the Advisory Committee on August 30 for making itself the law. Most of the men could not raise the bail bond, and went to jail یا into hiding. A compromise was reached whereby both sides dropped their charges
The Declaration of the Strike Committee, dated July 20, 1892 reads in part,
The employees in the mill of Messrs. Carnegie, Phipps & Co., at Homestead, Pa., have built there a town with its homes, its schools and its churches; have for many years been faithful co-workers with the company in the business of the mill; have invested thousands of dollars of their savings in کہا mill in the expectation of spending their lives in Homestead and of working in the mill during the period of their efficiency. Therefore, the committee desires to express to the public as its firm belief that both the public and the employees aforesaid have equitable rights and interests in the کہا mill which cannot be modified یا diverted without due process of law; that the employees have the right to continuous employment in the کہا mill during efficiency and good behavior without regard to religious, political یا economic opinions یا associations; that it is against public policy and subversive of the fundamental principles of American liberty that a whole community of workers should be denied employment یا suffer any other social detriment on account of membership in a church, a political party یا a trade union; that it is our duty as American citizens to resist سے طرف کی every legal and ordinary means the unconstitutional, anarchic and revolutionary policy of the Carnegie Company, which seems to evince a contempt for public and private interests and a disdain for the public conscience.
