Unionists Defer Extension of War
Against Packers for Another
Chicago, Aug 6 "Take mother out
of the packinghous e, so we can have
her care at home."
Two hundred little children, dressed
in white and waving tiny flags, bore
this appeal on placards as they
marched at the head of the women
workers in the strikers' parade of
40,000 unionists that surrounded be
leaguered Packingtown in a formi d
able but peaceable array to-day. For
the rest, a platoon of police, brass
bands and rough-ridi ng cattle-hand
dlers, beneath flying banners, lent
color to the line of more than 450
representative labor bodies.
Business was practically suspend ed
In the streets until shortly after noon,
when the last of the procession
marched towaid a big grove, where a
picnic was giv en to increase he fund
for the support of the strike.
Except for some of the banners
borne by the children, there was a
marked absen ce of inscriptions calling
attention to present strike conditions.
One of the children's banners bore
"Give father living wages, so that
we can go to school."
he crowds along the line of march
were very orderly.
Consideration of the Question of
calling out truck teamsters and others
hauling meat from cold storage ware
houses and of formally forbidding de
livery of ice to dealers handli ng meat
from the combinati on packers was
again postpon ed today by he execu

It was decided that nothing could be
done until the return of the teamsters'
union officials Monday from Cincin

The action taken then will depend
largely on he attitude assumed by
the teamsters' organization.
FIGHTING I N STOCKYARDS

Sioux City, Iowa, Aug 6.A clash
between the police and sheriff's forces
in the stockyards district last night

Huntley, while escorting a meat wag

In this attitude he was found by

The work will follow the usual plan

candidates will have an opportunity
to show their mettle without over-ex

About thirty aspirants will respond
to the first call. The number may be
increased, as Minnesota's agents have
not been idle. Among the old gua rd

several good gains or Macalester. De

gaps and is a hard man to stop.
Before leaving for Europe, Dr. Wil

Places to Filled.
The places over which the Minne

return, but this is uncertain. Last
year's halves, Davies and Irsfleld, are
out of the going. Davies is not ex
pected to return and Irsfleld did not
register for the last semester of last
year. Only a special ruling could
permit him to get into he game.

hails from the Aitken high-school
team. will probably enter he law
school and try for the team If any
thing by the name of Rogers tries
for a football position, it is almost a
foregone conclusion that he will make
thp team. Young Rogers will try for
quarter. In his past playing he has
been as fast as could be asked for
and as tricky as his brother.
There is little hope of material
from he city high schools. Most of
the players available are too light.
On he other hand, Minnesota agents
are said to have cruised the high and
prep, schools in legitimate territory.
One of the most likely looki ng pro s
pects is held in abeyance for various
reasons. It would be no breach of
faith to add that he is a player of
two years' experience, fast and game,

said to be well started.

THE WAR-FOR THE WEEK
arms an a giving5
Driven back by a series of Japanese on
slaughts, which began July 31, and have con
tinued daily, Kuropatkin has the Russian army
drawn up on the line of a flattened semicircle
whose center is at Liao-yang. The length of
this line is about forty miles. The Russians are
being slowly pushed back toward the walled
The Japanese line is parallel to this and close
to it. It overlaps the Russian line at each end.
Kuroki's right has reached a point on the flank
and in the rear of the Russian left. Oku's left
has, in alike manner, got in behind the Russian
Indications, therefore, are that Kuropatkin
must either withdraw into Liao-yang or fight.
He can hardly get completely away. He might
decide to sacrifice a rear guard to save the rest
of his army but a rear guard holding a line
forty miles long would be a force so tremen
dous that its sacrifice would be a fearful calam
ity. Even then, the main army in its retreat
would probably be intercepted by Kuroki's
right and held until other Japanese forces
could be called up.
If the Russians do not try to escape along the
railroad they would have to strike oft: to the
northwest, abandon their stores and lines of
communication, and become victims of an easy
pursuit. They could travel but fifty miles to
the westward before they reached Chinese ter
ritory, which they could not enter without
either laying down their arms and
parole, or violating the law of nations. Appar
ently, therefore, Kuropatkin is caught in a trap.
At Liao-yang there is an immense quantity of stores and ammunition, and the place has
been well fortified. Kuropatkin may, therefore, have his choice of standing siege or giving

HAY WELL PRESS CLAIMS
Dilatory Tactics of the Sultan Must

From The Journal Bureau, Colorado Building:,
"Washington, Aug. 6.No money is
involved in the present long drawn out
dispute with Turkey, which has now
assumed an acute stage. The claims
growing out of the last trouble, it will
be recalled, were settled by a subter
fuge of Secretary Hay by which
the sultan agreed to pay he
Cramps $95,000 more for his
ships than he would otherwise
have paid, and they reimbursed he
governmen t. The American state de
partment agreed to this device for
saving he Turk's face at home, pro
vided the money should come from he
sultan and not from the cramps, as
was he case. It was not the amount
of the claims, but the principle at
stake th at lead to the lo ng efforts of
the state department to secure re
The situation is much he same to
day. Turkey is not giving American
schools and missions within her do
mains as liberal treatment as she a c
cords to similar institutions and in
terests of France and Germany.
The American demand has lo ng
been for equality of rights and oppor
tunities with he most favored nation,
in this and several other respects per
taining to our citizenship. It is now
proposed to put this demand thru to
a successful issue, just as our govern
ment insisted on he collection of the
claims already alluded to, altho in
the aggrega te they were not of large
Same Old Trouble
In accomplishing this second -task
the government has experienced he
same old difficulties it always meets
in dealing with the Turk. OUr diplo
matic representative would argue with
the Turkish minister of foreign affairs
until the latter, after repeated delays
and postponements, would agree to
recommend our contention to the
sultan for his acceptance. "When our
representative would call for the an
swer, the minister of foreign affairs,
who had himself no power, would say
th at he sultan had giv en no reply
and was not ready to act.
Then our representative would try
to see the sultan. This request would
would then, backed by the state
department, insist on calling on the
sultan, saving he had an important
message from he president which
must be delivered in person, and in
this way an audience would at last Ire
granted. JJut that would be he sig
nal for another series of delays.
Here an interesting consideration
in diplomatic etiquette appeared. Mr
Leishman is a minister merely, and
he sultan is not obliged to see any
bo dy who is not an ambassador.
sometimes does so at the special in
sistence of our government, but this
Leishman would naturally like to
be an ambassador, but the president
is powerless to make him one, since
the law which congress passed on he
subject specifies th at the foreign gov
ernment must raise its representative
here to ambassadorial rank before we
can make a similar move, and Turkey
cann ot do this. She does not want
an American ambassodar the re with
the privilege of access to the sultan,
which he would have.
Efforts which have been in progress
for some time to secure an adjustment
of this question would have be en
much more successful, it is assumed,
but for the frankne ss of he Ameri
can press. "We already have a squad
ron of he navy at Fiume, but it was
soon cabled abroad that it would not
go further, but from there would re
turn to Gibraltar. The Turkish of
flicials naturally saw this information
and bore it to he sultan.
From this time forth the state de
partment will try to convince he sul
tan th at he cannot always believe
