Chicago, June 2ti.—The crisis In the
big strike of the Illinois Central train
men was reached this evening. After
an all-day session, the conference be
tween the strikers' committee and offi
(ials ended with a positive refusal on
the part of the company to discharge
Superintendent Russell. This was an
ultimatum, so far as the company was
concerned. When the conference broke
up the men went at once to the strikers'
headquarters to report the result. Specu
lation was rife as to whether a general
strike throughout the Illinois Central
system would be ordered and a gigantic
At the strikers' headquarters the mat
ter was discussed several houis, and
when the meeting finally adjourned it
was given out that a conclusion had been
reached. A rumor was in circulation
tonight that the strikers decided to ask
concessions limiting the power of Super
intendent Russell. Other reports said
such concessions had already been re
fused, and that the strikers are now only
seeking an excuse to let themselves
down easy. The way for this was opened
by the company's statement, made to
night, that while declining to remove
Superintendent Russell it censured him
for lack of courtesy to subordinates, and
declares the displacement of capable
hands not in contemplation.

Associated Press Dispatches I
San Jose, June 26. —Tlie railroad con
vention met at 10 o'clock. The chair
man said nothing would really be done
till Col. Crocker came, and if he did not
come, they might as well adjourn *irre
die. In the meantime an adjournment
was taken till 11 o'clock. Col. Crocker
came, but said he could give no definite
answer to the resolutions which had
been adopted without consulting with
his associates in the Southern Pacific
Company. Personally he was in
favor of completing the railroad through
the coast counties as soon as possible.
When asked whether $500,000 in cash
would be more acceptable than the same
amount in bonds, he said practically it
would make but little difference. Five
hundred thousand dollars is but a frac
tion of the amount needed to build the
road, as it would certainly cost nearly
$5,000,000. What the Southern Pacific
Company wanted was an assurance that
the investment would pay. He would
say, however, that the whole amount of
bonds necessary to build the road could
be floated in eastern markets easier
than a small part. Sundry questions
were asked Mr. Crocker by various dele
gates, but none of great moment, and
the convention adjourned till 1 o'clock.
At the afternoon session the committee
presented a report stating that it is the
sense of the convention that to induce
the Southern Pacific Company to com
mence and complete at an early day the
connection between Santa Margarita
and Ellwood, the convention agrees to
obtain and deliver to the Southern Pa
cilic Company as soon as practicable
deeds for the right-of-way aud depot
grounds along said connection, and to
also collect and deposit in a savings bank
$315,000, or securities satisfactory to
the Southern Paeilie Company for any
uncollected portion thereof; the same to
be made payable to the Southern Pacific
on the following conditions: That the
company shall, within thirty days after
the notification of the procurement of
rights-of-way and depot facilities, coiiv
mence a survey for the location of said
connection, and that within sixty days
after the notification of the deposit of
cash, to commence the construction of
the road, and to proceed dili
gently and continuously with the
same and complete the road
as part of its southern over
land system within twelve months
thereafter. These conditions having
been complied with, the sum of $315,000
shall become due to the Southern Pa
cific, one-third on the completion of the
road, one-third one year thereafter and
the remainder two years thereafter, to
gether with such interest as may accrue.
The committee recommended indefi
nite postponement of the resolution
adopted yesterday ; also that a standing
committee of three persons from each
county be selected by the delegates
from the respective counties to carry out
the purposes of the convention.
The committee also recommends that
if the offer is not accepted by the South
ern Pacific within thirty days that the
chairman be instructed to reconvene the
convention within thirty days thereafter.
After a long discussion the report was
finally adopted by a vote of 35 to 4, and
the convention adjourned.
Commissioner Ricu Says the Year is an
Unusually Good One
San Francisco, June 20. —George
Rice, of the state board of horticulture,
said today: "Fruit prospects for Cali
fornia are unusually good this year.
While the crop will not be as large as it
was last year, the money value of it will
be much greater. The short crop will
be due to the destruction of trees by the
great floods of last winter. A great
many were destroyed, but where the
trees are left uninjured the crop will be
well up to or beyond the average, and
the shortage in the eastern fruit crop
will raise tlie value of California fruit to
an unprecedented figure. The mysterious
grape disease of Southern California has
left the vines there entirely. The new
vines are wholly free from it, while the
old vines, whose roots have not been
killed, are sprouting up with a vigorous
growth. The disease has disappeared as
mysteriously as it came."

In the Ranks.
New York, June 20. —The national
convention of the North American Turn
ers adjourned today to meet in June,
1802, at Washington. New York Cen
i tral Verein feels very sore at the
j adoption by the convention of a socialis
tic platform, and it is probable that the

grants and sales to individuals or cor

I introduction of German instructions in

Keeping Water Cool.
The simplest device in all the world
for keeping water cool is one that may
not occur to some persons with whom
ice must be a seldom enjoyed luxury
during the summer months, "it consists
only in swathing the vessel in which the
water is kept—a porous vessel, such as a
jug or earthen jar, is the best for this
purpose—in folds of flannel which is to
be kept wet from time to time, so as to
keep up a constant evaporation. This
evaporation will keep the water in the
vessel at an even temperature, and one
that is much more healthful than that of
water cooled with ice.—[New York Even
