SAN FRANCISCO, July 11. For over
twenty-four hours United States regulars
have been in the Held In northern Cali
fornia, but the railroad blockade has not
been broken. In fact, the situation to-night
is deemed more serious than It has been
at any time heretofore.
Human life has been sacrificed at Sac
ramento In a horror which the strikers are
accused of having perpetrated. All of the
victims but one were soldiers. It is clear
that the strikers realize the folly of openly
resisting the United States army as they
have resisted all municipal and State au
thorities, and that the more barbarous and
more deadly tactics of guerrilla warfare are
to. be resorted to. Twice during the day
the troops were aibushed. The first at
tack from tinder cover was early In the
morning.. - .
At 6 o'clock Colonel Graham landed at
Sacramento with a force of over six hun
dred regulars. No effort was made to re
sist their progress. The troops marched di
rect to the Southern Pacific depot and took
possession of the buildings and railroad
yards. A few hundred people, gathered at
the depot, dispersed when ordered to do
so. At tho wharves a detachment of State
militia had been left to guard the water
front. The regular troops were no sooner
out of sight than this little band of mi
litiamen was fired upon with rifles by a
force of some twenty-five men who were
concealed in the bushes on the opposite side
of the river. The militiamen returned the
fire, and about two hundred shots were ex
changed across the river before the at
tacking party fied. A Japanese boy who
stood on the river bank was killed by a
bullet from the militia. None of the at
tacking party was apprehended.
Under cover of the United States troops
the railway officials went ".nto the yard3
and resumed work unmolested. The tracks
were cleared and trains were made up. At
noon a train was dispatched for Oakland
under a strong military guard. Among tne
crowds of the strikers In the streets were
men who openly boasted that the train
would never reach Oakland, but no one
thought they spoke knowingly. An hour
later, when the news came back to Sacra
mento of a horrible wreck, in which at
least four men had perished, these same
men were as loudly denying that the men
were strikers who had sawed away the
supports of the railroad bridge. The disas
ter at the bridge caused the railroad com
pany to cease Us efforts to move trains
out of Sacramento. Until the wreckers now
at work shall have repaired tne damage
done to the trestle, no trains can be run
over that line.
At Oakland, to-day, the outlook was also
warlike. An extra force of 150 special po
licemen and deputies had been sworn In.
The railroad oiflcers were making prepar
ations early In the day to start trains
simultaneously with those sent out from
Sacramento, After the full force of depu
ties had arrived a band of strikers charged
in the yards. The deputies gave way.
After all the engines that had been run
out were killed the strikers withdrew.
Then came news of the disaster near Sac
ramento. "When Division Superintendent
Wilier heard that the train had been
wrecked he stopped further preparations.
"We want to know where we stand," he
said, "before we go ahead. If bushwhack
ing is now to prevail we do not projose
to send out our men and Jeopardize their
A train was also sent down the Sorr.ona
valley branch from Calistoga this morn
ings, but It Is stopped at Vallejo, where
strikers killed the engine. To-night trains
are running In northern California only on
the coast division. Neither in San Fran
cisco nor at San Jose did the strikers
cause any disturbance during the day.
At Los Ange'.es the blockade appears to
have been effectually broken. After the
slight disturbances at that point on Tues
day night the guard In the yards was In
creased. This morning the wrecked cars
were cleared away and trains went out
on time, a guard of troops accompanying
the overlands. The Southern Pacific over
land train from the East arrived In Los
Angeles at 9 o'clock in the morning under
a military guard. Another overlanl
train, similarly guarded, was dispatched at
When the United States' District Court
convened at Ixs Angeles this morning
Judge Ross called the grand Jury and re
ferred briefly to the wrecking of cars In
the railroad yard.- on Tuesday night. He
told them to indict all the parties they
found violating the law. Jud;e Ro?s alsi
charged the Jury relative to the obstruc
tion of the malls and Interstate commerce.
He declared that the railroads, under the
law, were obliged to carry the nails oa
their passenger trains, and their failure to
run these trains did not constitute an of
fense. If they ran passenger trains, and
did not carry the mails on them, as pro
vided by law, then the railroads would
have been guilty of Infraction of the
law. He declared that under the
Interstate commerce law the railroads
could do as they saw fit in making up their
trains, and could In their composition put
on any kind and as many cars as they
thought was fit for the purposes the train
was Intended. Any attempt on the part of
the employes to uncouple the cars they
did not desire to have go would constitute
a conspiracy on the part of the men to
Interfere with the transmission of the
malls if they were on trains made up.
He declared that under the laws the rail
roads were obliged to carry commerce be
tween the States and they were not dis
obeying the law If they were coerced
Into not running the trains fcr fear of
Four Men Killed and Four "Wounded
SACRAMENTO, July 11. A train was de
railed two miles below this city this after
noon. Three regular soldiers and the engi
neer were killed ard four soldiers injured.
The dead are:
The wounded are:
PRIVATE UAUMLER, Injured about the
PRIVATE "WILSON, left leg seriously
PRIVATE DUGAN, left arm cut off.
PRIVATE ELLIS, internally injured.
Shortly after 6 o'clock this morning the
steamers Alameda and Acme, carrying the
regular troops, steamed up the river and
landed at the levee. They were met by
several companies of militia, who had been
ordered to keep the crowd back, fearing
an attack by the strikers and their sym
pathizers. Shortly after 7 o'clock the regu
lars and marines marched to the depot,
headed by Colonel Graham and staff. The
usual rush of spectators took place, but
they were quickly dispersed. The strikers
had abandoned the situation and were no
where to be seen. Sentries were at once
detailed to keep the crowd at a safe dis
tance and the Gatling guns were placed In
Shortly after 9 o'clock General Superin
tendent Fillmore had a conference with
Colonel Graham, and when It was con
cluded the latter ordered his officers to
drive every one out of the depot, Including
newspaper reporters. Division Superintend
ent Wright, with an engine, then cleared
the main track, and orders were issued
to take the overland train, which had been
delayed here since the Inauguration of the
strike, to San Francisco. Samuel Clark,
one of the oldest engineers in the employ
of the company, took charge of the engine,
acting under instructions of Colonel Gra
ham. Soldiers belonging to Battery D,
Fifth United States Artillery, accompanied
As the train pulled out of the depot there
was a silence among the strikers, who were
evidently not In a happy mood, and fre
quently hinted that the train would not
reach San Francisco. Such proved to be
the truth. Shortly after the train left the
depot word was received here that it had
been fired upon by strikers and ditched. It
was reported that engineer Clark was killed
by a bullet and several regulars perished In
the wreck. Later advices, however, show
that not a shot was fired. The strikers had
unspiked the rails for a distancfe of about
one hundred feet and covered their das
tardly work with sand. Engineer Clark,
notwithstanding that he was on the alert
for such cowardly tactics, plunged into the
trap. The engine was overturned and sev
eral cars upset. Engineer Clark was killed,
and privates Byrne, Lubberding and Clark
met a similar fate. Private Daumler, who
was also on the engine when it upset, was
seriously injured about the head. Private
Ellis was hurt Internally and is likely to
SANK INTO THE MUDDY WATERS.
The train consisted of nine cars, five of
them Pullmans. On the engine were pri
vates Lubberding, Byrne, Clark, Dugan,
Ellis and Wilson. The engine plunged
through the trestle and none of the men
had time to jump and save themselves.
Those of the men who were not Instantly
killed were weighted down with their heavy
accoutrements and sank into the muddy
water. Engineer Clark was pinned under
the engine and his body has not been re
covered. The trestle was about eighty feet
long and was comp.etely shattered. Fully
one-half of the filling was torn out. The
engine Is burled in the mud and water with
the four forward cars. Another car is
hanging over the edge of the embankment.
They were all man cars and none of the
Pullmans was injured.
Shortly after the report that the train
had been derailed Division Superintendent
Wright ordered the wrecking crew to the
scene. General Graham also sent a com
pany of cavalry to head off the strikers.
Soon after 4 o'clock this afternoon two of
the wounded men were brought to the city
and taken to the hospital, where their in
juries were dressed. The regulars are In
an ugly mood on account of the death and
injury to their comrades and seem anxious
for a skirmish with the strikers. Many of
them clnim that Superintendent Fillmore
assured General Graham that the road
had been carefully gone over, and further
declared that he knew the strikers would
not resort to any desperate measures to
win the strike. It was not until he assured
General Graham of the supposed good con
dition of the road that the latter consented
to send his men to assist the train to San
Harry Knox, the leader of the strikers,
has issued the following: "I desire to
state in behalf of the A. It. U. that this
order has not the remotest connection with
the ditching of the train between Sacra
mento and Davlsville this afternoon in
which several people lost their lives. "We
condemn this act as outrageous and bar
barous and entirely contrary to the spirit
of the A. R. U., which is engaged in an
honorable struggle In the Interest of labor
and is opposed to violence or the sacrific
ing of human life. This act was done by
sympathizers, and we regret it the more,
as it is calculated to injure rather than
help us. We sincerely trust that this first
act of violence will be the last."
Order were given this evening to ex
tend the guard 'lines to E street, fully a
block from tha depot. This Is to prevent
the strikers from getting near the com
pany's property. General Graham has de
tailed I troop. Fourth Cavalry, to patrol
the railroad in the vicinity of the wreck
and 'arrest all suspicions characters. The
men in the troop are bitter against the
strikers since the derailing of the traln.and
their comrades at the depot predict that
they will deal severely with any of th
strikers that they may encounter. The reg
ulars say they came here to do fair fight
ing and not to kill like rats In a trap, and
they do not propose to submit to this kind
An examination of the bridge reveals the
fact that one of the stringers had been cut
off and a small piece of wool substituted
in such a way that it would fall through
as soon as a heavy weight passed over
the rail. Two men have been arrested on
suspicion of having been concerned In tho
wreck. They are now In the guardhouse.
They wre arrested by a deputy marshal.
Engineer McCoy, who was on the train,
saw the men Just before the train left the
track. They were alarmed when arrested.
The depot and yards have been cleared
and the picket has beea extended to I
street, a block north of the depot. The
picket line now surrounds the depot at a
distance of about a block in all directions.
There have been rumors of dynamite

SACRAMENTO, Cal.. July 11. At the re
quest of the mediation committee ex-At-torney-general
Hart has written a lengthy
opinion defining the rights and responsibil

that to resist the troops Is treason. The
opinion says, in part: "It cannot be de

authority of the United States would be
treason against the government, which
would not receive the support of the large
majority of citizens who sympathize with
your cause. I advise you not to permit
yourselves in these times of danger to at
tempt disorder and devotion to your cause
to entangle you in a conflict with the ar
mies of the federal government. I hope
that the excitement of the hour may not
induce any of the men who are norr banded
together In labor organizations in this city
to commit any act which may under any
circumstances be denounced as criminal."
Harry Knox, chairman of the commit
tee on mediation, said late last night that
the strikers would abide by the opinion
of their attorney by making no resistance
to the troops.
LOS ANGELES. July ll.-The first un
lawful act that has been committed by
strikers in this city since the Puilman boy
cott was declared was perpetrated last
night when forty or fifty men walked out
to a point near the San Bernardino depot
and threw a box car across the tracks of
the Southern Pacific company, with the evi
dent intention of impeding Eastern traffic
this morning. Two other box cars were run

STINSOX MEMORIAL KALL.
Marion Soldiers' Home to Have a
Chapel Costiiur About SG.5M).
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
WASHINGTON, July 11. A memorial
chapel in memory of Daniel Stlnsoa, is to
be erected at the Soldiers' Home at Ma
rion. Ex-Governor Steele, who Is here at
tending the annual meeting of the board
of managers of the soldiers' homes, gives
the following Interesting story of the
chapel, which is to cost $5,500:
"About a year and a half ago a gentle
man by the name of Stinson who belonged
to the jiavy, desired to leave a sum of
money for the benefit of old and Infirm
soldiers. After examining the system, etc.,
at Marlon, and believing he could in no
way benefit them better, he left a legacy of
$10,000 to the home to be disposed of as
the' managers thought best and proper.
Religious services, both Protestant and ,
Catholic, have been held In the basement
of the barracks for want of a better place.
The governor of the home informed the
board that to erect a chapel according to
the plans he now had would cost 16,500.
The chapel will be in keeping with all the
other buildings and will be called the
Stinson Memorial Hall and Chapel
"There is now a bill before the Senate,
which has passed the War and Treasury
Departments and the House, appropriating
$24,000 for additional barracks. Last year
over four hundred men who made applica
tion for admission to the home were
turned away. We have now three hundred
more men than we had last year. It is
conceded by all persons that the barracks
at Marion are the finest in the world. As
sistant Inspector-general Lawton advised
that hereafter all structures should be or
a temporary nature, as the maximum was
reached, or nearly so, and that it would b
unnecessary' as the soldiers were dying
rapidly. The board did not accent his ad
vice and feel perfectly confident of man
aging this business themselves. The board
does not believe it Is wise, especially from
an economical standpoint, to erect tem
porary structures, nor does It wish, by
such buildings, to erect, as It were, a large
sign reminding the soldiers that thev have
?orneVew,thn t0 ,lve-, Everythlnff at the
home, with the exception of a temporary
wooden dining room, is all brick."

told them he had nothing to say. "i don't
want nny spiritual advice." said Prender
gast. "Neither do I want any priests here,"
and then he retired to the remotest corner
of his cell and refused to either speak or
look at the visitors. Afterwards Prender
gast remarked: "These people keep away
from me until they think the nd i3 near;
then they come around with their advio'
I shall not bother with them. I dn't rcd
any spiritual talk, and will not have it
that's all there Is about it." '

CHICAGO, July U.-The ultimate effect
of the appeal issued last night by General
Master Workman Sovereign, of the Knights
of Labor, calling on all Knights throughout
the country and those in sympathy with
them to quit work and the order Issued a
about the same time by the representative
of allied labor In Chicago to do llkewlsi
cannot yet bo certainly foreseen. All that
is now definitely known is that the Knights
of Labor, at all points heard from, include
ing nearly all of the large centers of popu
lation in the United States, remained at
work to-day with practical uzianlmltyr aaci
that, in this city, the number of member
of the allied trades which retrained at
work so far outnumbered those who quit as
to make no appreciable change In the In
dustrial appearance of the city.
. The leaders, howcrer, say that there is
nothing in the situation to cause them dis
couragement; that the public, through lack
of knowledge of the machinery of Industrial
organization, has been led to expect results
whicL were not In contemplation when the
strike orders were issued. Mr. Sovereign,
for instance, points out that his appeal was
not an order to strike; that, In fact, he has
no power to order a walk-out, bat that
persons acquainted with the working of the
organization would know that, in effect. It
would be the same as an order. In short,
he was perfectly confident that, by Satur
day next, after the various local and dis
trict assemblies had time to meet and take
formal action, on the appeal and to rally
their friends outside the order, the result
would show one million of men idle as a
consequence. The local leaders also claimed,
that a little time was the only necessary
condition of a wal'c-out of the hundred
thousand men whom they represent, and,
that,, by Saturday, after the various or
ganizations had had time to consult to
gether, the proposed tie-up of business
would be fully as effective as they had pre
dicted. Surface Indications, so far, however, do
not bear out the claims of either Mr. Sov
ereign or the Chicago men. It Is not re
corded yet that any "district assembly off
the Knights of Labor has voted to strike.
On the other hand, the Urooklyn district,
which Is composed of railroad mn, and,
therefore, naturally nupposably In sym
pathy with their fellows in the Wst, at a
meeting, to-day, confined their expression
of sympathy to a tender of financial aid,
but declined to strike.
Ixcally several of the organizations, mem
bers of the federated trades, have given it
to be understood that they do not lntenl
to go out. Furthermore, It Is known that
there was a large conservative element in
the representative trades meeting which
passed the resolution having a strike in
view, and It is understood that they have
been earnestly at work ever since to mla
imlze the results of that action.
In the meantime continued Improvement
In the railroad situation here and else
where, except at Sacramento and Oakland,
CaL, is noted. At the former federal troops
were landed, but the State militia stationed
on the water front to cover their landing
were fired-on from ambush after the reg

it was sought to snd to San Francisco
under guard of government troop wa
thrown from a trestle. The engineer and
three soldiers were killed, and four soldiers
The general public, as well as organized
labor, is looking forward with marked In
terest to the meeting of the executive
board of the American Federation of La
bor, perhaps the most powerful organiza
tion of the kind in the country, in this
city to-n.orrow, and Its action Is expected
to have a marked effect on the outcome
of the present Industrial struggle. It is
knoan that the position of Samuel Gom
pers, its president, has been one of opio
sltlon to a sympathetic strike of federation
mrn at this time, and that he looks oa
the existing situation as critical He has
invited the head.- of other labor organiza

the belief Is that he will strenuously advo
