The announcement was made by offi

give you every possible opportunity to
reach a solution of the present contro

however, that considering the existing

made to you and your organization in

further our opinion that we cannot re

ULTIMATUM ISSUED. '
Sheriff at St. Paul Warns the Striking
ST. PAUL,, July 1C Sheriff Grlslm
of Dakota county this afternoon issued
an ultimatum to the striking butchers
nt South St. Paul, that unless they
show a disposition to recognize the au
thority of the Sheriff and his deputies,
the situation will be brought to the at
tention of Gov. Van Sant. and that
the State militia will be asked to take
churge. The ultimatum is the outcome
of the disregard shown today for the
Sheriff's orders and the treatment he
personalis' received in an effort to open
the cordon and send men through the I
packing plants. J
A Inter report from South St. Paul
puts a more serious aspect on the J
trouble there today, and says, It was
due to an attempt on the part of Super
intendent Burns to rush a party of
twenty men through the dense line of
pickets in front of the entrance to
the- packing plant. The effort to put
the men through came Immediately
after Sheriff Grislm's arrival from St.
Paul. A conference was held and Su
perintendent Burns collected his meu.
Headed by the Sheriff, Superintendent
Burns and Secretary Beek of the Citi
zens' association of St. Paul, the party
made for the lines.
"Line up," shouted the chief picket,
and the men formed a solid wall in
front of the party. Sheriff Grlsim par
leyed for a few minutes and, forclifg
his way into the line, took a strike

One.' of the strikers threw him to the
ground. The struggle with the pickets
broke die cordon .and distributed tho
strikers' force, when the Sheriff suc
ceeded In getting the strike-breakers
through to the gate.
The invaders, when they marched .up
to the entrance, were surrounded by
strikers and a fight began. In a mo
ment all - was confusion. Maj Tuffle
of the Minneapolis branch of the com
pany, who was with tho Invaders, was
badly Injured. Sheriff Grisim rescued

said to be bombarding, and of the ur-rlval-

The Admiralty was unable ,to confirm
or deny cither report, hot having re
ceived any communication from Rear

generally were not Inclined to credit
them. If true. It would mean that Ad

official reporter of the United States
Senate. Mr. Murphy has been here sev

and Its suburbs but will go to San
Francisco probably today. Having been
in the Senate since 1S60 he has a fund
of anecdotes to relate about all tho
men who have helped to make history
and who have added fame to the not
able ohamber. His two brothers, as
.already told in The Tribune, have been
engaged in the same work, the first
one of the name accepting the position
as early as 184S. Mr. Murphy has an
other brothor, D. I. Murphy, who is
secretary of the Panama Canal com
mission, and both are personal friends
of Senator Kearns of this city, with
whom Mr. Murphy dined last evening.

the, ones who make the speeches, how
everr, he says, that are the best In

the interests of their States, because
the spoech-makors often give offense
to others, whllo thoso who are more re

State, in the end do the groatest
amount of good.
"Sonator Kearns," he said, "mindful
of tho traditions of the Senate, has
not attempted to wax hot on the floor
before he was warm In his seat. He
has thus far made but ono speech In
the Senate, which was a eulogy on the
lalo Senator Hanna, with whom Sen
ator Kearns was on terms of the closest
Intimacy and friendship. The eulogy
was brief, but well worded, and most
sympathetic In Its tone. I waB In

most highly appreciated this sincere
