THE DAILY OAIRO BULLETIN: SATURDAY MOKNING, MAY 8, 188.4.
A GREAT STRIKE.
Inaugurated by tho Employes ol

Uoriiontal Measures not Popular With
Men Who Toil and Sweat for
Their Daily Bread.
Probability That No Less Than Fifteen
Thousand Men Will Thus Enter
Omaha, Neb., May 2. All tho shop
men, switchmen and brakenicu of the
Uiiioii Pacific Company left their work
this morning, and are now out on a strike.
The business of the Union Taciflc Is com
pletely blocked, and nothing is beiug
done. The strikers are qui it, but deter
mined and hopeful, and think that the
difficulty will be settled within twenty
four hours. A large crowd of men are
now gathered around the Union Pacific
Depot and insist that no trains shall go
out. The dummy train td Council Bluffs
started with two cars this morning, but
upon returning to this city
TB ST1UKEHS ORDEUK1)
that one car be cut off, which was done.
The trains west will leave with a mail
car, no baggage or passenger cars being
allowed to go out. At Summit, two
miles west of tils city, the strikers huve
possession of the switches, and refuse to
let any trains in or out. It is thought
that the company will soon give in, but
a visit to the headquarters failed to elicit
any information as to what course they
propose to pursue. Pully 15,000 men will
be ou strike in a few hours.
Dejsvkr, Coi.., May 2. The horizontal
reduction of salaries of employes of the
Union Pacific has been followed by a
general strike among the shop and yard
men to the number of 50. The Kansas
I'aclfic shops and the South Park shops
ore both closed, the men going out in a
body from each. The trade unions have
taken up the fight aud tho Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers have promised
to stand by the strikers.
At St. Louis.
St. Lons, Mo., May 'J. Railroad men
in St. Louis connected with the Union
Pacific aud the Gould roads say that there
is a restless feeling among the clerks,
agents and trainmen here and all along
the line. The strike fever may yet be
come general, they think, and if so it
will be a difficult thing for business to go
on with only engineers aud firemen
left to do it. If the cutting
down process should extend to
outside lines, the opinion gen
erally prevails in railroad circles
that a strike will take place, the magni
tude of which has never before been
seen. The men who are now out, while
they lack organization, it is said are re
ceiving pecuniary support In a quiet way
by those who still hold over, but sympa
thize with the strikers.
Railroad stocks were much depressed
to-day, owing, it was claimed on 'Change,
to the strike of the Union Pacific em
ployes. A foeling prevails that it is but
the beginning of a series of railroad
strikes, and a crash in stocks is antici
pated. FROM WASHINGTON. j
HQiUa Appropriation Bill.
Washington, 1), C, May 2. Almost
every member of the House has received
petitions from military organizations
praying for prompt action on the bill In
creasing the annual appropriation from
$200,000 to $000,000. The bill now on
the House calendar, if possible, will be
called before the expiration of the present
session. General Cox (of North Caro
lina) made several efforts to secure Its
consideration, but owing to the pressure
of business he as yet has been unsuc
cessful. A bill similar to that reported by
the Military Committee composed In the
Senate is now before the Committee on
Appropriations of the House. This com
mtUec has leave to report at any time.
Considerable pressure is being brought
to bear upon Itaudal!, the chairman," in
vtew of securing a favorable report on
the Senate bill. The present aunual an-
propriatiou in aid ol State militia, fixed
by the act of 1808 is conceded bv both
branches of Concress to be inadequate to
the present contingencies, and the pro-
poseu increase is ho lustiiiable that noth
ing but the mass of business on the House
calendar can prevent its favorable con
sideration. A gentleman thoroughly in-
iorraea on me suoject saia that the only
nay w insure action on ine measure dur
ing this session will be through the House
Kellogg to be Investigated.
Washington, D. C, May 2. Tho
Springer committee has decided to
thoroughly investigate Congressman Kel
logg's connection with the Star-route
matters and permit Colonel Ingersoll to
cross-examine witness. The examina
tion can not effect the right of Kellogg to
his seat in the House, because one Con
gress ha no jurisdiction over the offenses
committed in a previous Congress, and
furthermore Mr. Kellogg was a Senator

Washington, D. C, May 2. Mr. Van
Wyck offered a resolution directing the
Secretary of the Interior to state what
action has been taken in regard to tho
Colorado land compuny promoted by the
Karl of Dunraven. The Senator said
that immediate action was needed to pro
tect the public domain from fraudulent
entries by foreign companies who were
inveigled into those schemes, and it was
imperative to save trouble aud avoid
scandal at home and abroad that there
should be some ventilation of this sub
ject. The resolution passed.
Senator Dawes offered a resolution,
wnicu was agreed to, directing the Secre
tary ol State to report all agreements
made with foreign cable companies and

Mr. McMillan from the Committee on
Commerce, reported favorably the House
bill, amending the act authorizing the
construction of a pontoon wagon bridge
across the Mississippi Uiver at or near
Dubuque. The amendment merely mod
ules the width of the draw, which, in
stead of being 5(10 feet, may be of such a

scribe; not however, less than 4'J0 feet.
Mr. Cullom from the Comml ttee on

Without delay the House went into

Mr. Wemple (of N. Y.) took the floor

the abolition of the duty on wool as a
measure of benellt both to the manu
facturers and farmers.
Mr. Belmont favored the bill.
Mr. McMillian denounced the present
tariff as a moustrous piece of injustice,
inequality and false pretense. It had de
stroyed commerce, cut dowu the sales of
American manufactures and depleted the
revenues of Americau agriculture.

News from Evansville concerning Capt.
Moore, received here yesterday afternoon,
was to the effect that he died Thursday
morning at 0 :30 o'clock, or about fifteen
minutes after reaching home. He was met
at Bhawneetown by his family who accom
panied him home. He did not regain con
sciousness before his death, but lay in a
stupor from the time the Fowler left
Mound City until the end. Mr. Ford re
grets very much that he was not at home
when the Capt. was first stricken and kept
him here, beliering that the removal so soon
after the stroke hastened the Capt's death.
The Voice of Randolph, one of the
livliest little Democratic weeklies in the
district, believes that "in point of fact Hon.
W. W. Barr, of Carbondale, Jackson County,
is the proper man for the Democracy of the
Twentieth district to nominate for Congress.
He is the people's choice, but as Hon. Wm.
K. Murphy, of Pinckneyvillc, Perry Coun
ty, iu 1882, made a gallant race the Demo
cracy owe it to that gentleman and te
themselves to give him the field in 1884.
Murphy can be elected this time, and there
ought to be no kicking about his nomina

-Mr. J. W. Hill returned several davs
ago from St. Louis. The Kimbrough is
again on her way up the Osage river. He
sojourned Beveral days in St. Louis and he
says there is general complaint among the
business men there of the dullness of the
times, lie was in the great Famous cloth
ing house the day beiore leaving und iQere
were not half a dozen customers in the
whole mammoth establishment. But St.
Louis is no exception to the rule. Every
large city in the country is likewise alllict
ed, and small ones, too, as is evident from
letters received by business men here from
friends in various parts of the country.
One ol the newly elected alderman,
speaking to Beveral friends in a down town
saloon a day or two ago stated in the course
of his rather excited remarks, with every
cvidenco of the profoundest indignation,
that, though he had lived in this cjty for
tlnrty-hve yeaars, he had never before been
"approached" as he had been "approached"
since his recent election to the City Coun
cil. What he meant he did not deign to
explain; but it seems to us that such a re
mark, coming from such a source mado
under tueli circumstance?, would need
some kiud ol an explanation in order to
avoid an interpretation that would convey
to the inquiry mind vague impressions of
corruption in our local public service.
Mr. C. A. M. Schlierholz, of Waterloo,
III., chief engineer of the Illinois Southern
& Paducah Railway Company, was in the
city yesterday. He feels assured that the
road he is connected with will bo an ac
complished fact before long if the authori
ties of Metropolis will bo reasonable in
their demands and offers. Yesterday's
Metropolis Democrat gives the following
as the proposed contract between the rail
road company and the city: "Tho compa
ny agree to build a levee one foot abovo
the flood mark of 1884, 14 foot wide on top,
with a slope of 1 to 3 on the river side and
1 to 1 on the inside in good workmanship
manner and to the satisfaction of tho city
council. The company further agreo to
place a single line railroad track on the
levee spanned with steel rails keeping it lu
repair for 00 years, and further that tho ap
purtenances shall be held in trust by the
city for the faithful performance of this
contract. In consideration the city on its
part agrees to deliver to the company 14,
000, 0 per cent 20 year bonds on the com
pletion of the levee aud ten miles of road
The revival meetings which have been
in progress at the Baptist Ciiurch for the
past few weeks were closed Thursday even
ing and Rev. Mr. Whitney returned to Car
bondale yesterday afternoon. His remarks
Thursday evening were based on the text:
"Launch out intothe deep," and were main
ly devoted -to the encouragement of the
young converts and the church in geueral.
The church and christian people of the city
who have heard him feel indebted to Mr.
Whitney for his labors during the meetings
which were characterized by earnestness
and zeal- his sermons beiug among the
most forcible ever delivered in the church.
As s result of the meetings there were
twelve additions to the church. The ordi
nance of Baptism was administered to
seven candidates at the close of the services
After all, Capt. Thomas is nt the
unanimous and harmonious choice of all
the Republicans of the district ; nor Is he a
politician exceptionally pure in his meth
ods that ii, if the following from the
MurphyaboroEraof Friday, tho most rad
ical of Republican papers iu the district,
edited in the firecest Republican manner by
one of the gentlest of gentlemen, is true:
"Capt. Thomas having bought off R. Mc
Cartney from the Congressional race by the
promise of a United Spates Ju Igeship,
thinks he has smooth sailing over the
course. It looks to us as though he had
made a great mistake."-But-, then, though
the Era sings lustily for Mr. Smith, it
sings a solo and there doesn't appear t be
any prospect for much of a chorus uutil
after the nomination when the Democrats
will sing a song that will mike the R-pub-lican
party of the district tremble with fear.
Another Startling Occurrence
Sudden Death of Mr. .Samuel Wilson,
Of the several painful events that have
kept this commuuity iu constant excite
ment for several days past none was more
painful than the sudden death, yesterday
about noon, of Mr. Samuel Wilson, Senior.
Early yesterday morning he csme into the
saloon of Mr. Louis C. Herbert and taking a
seat in a chair complained of being very
sick. Mr. Herbert offered to hire a hack
and have him conveyed home, but he re
fused, saying that he would not go home
under any circumstances. He also refused
medical care; but called for a little liquor
and peppermint which was given him. He
remained there several hours, going out
several times and ret urine again, uutil
about 11 :30 o'clock when Mr. Herbert, go
ing out into the back yard heard loud
groans in one of the out houses. He called
"who is there" and Mr. Wilson answered,
saying "come in here Louis and help me
up." Mr. Herbert entered anil found Mr.
Wilson lying ou the floor in a heap, evident
ly in great agony. The sick man was taken
back into the Ealoon and Dr. Gordon whs
called, who pronounced him to be beyond
the reach of medical skill. A hack waM
immediately procured and Mr. Wilson was
taken home and carried into the house by
Mr. Herbert and another gentleman, and
within ten minutes afterwards he died, sur
rounded by his grief-stricken family. He
never spoke after he had been picked up
by Mr. Herbert, and sank steadily and rap
idly. When Dr. Gordon arrived to attend
him, the sick man seemed as a man in the
last stages of cholera, but it is the op'nion
of the Dr. that congesiion oi the bowels
was the fatal cause.
Mr. Wilson was born in Livingston
County, Kentucky, August 14'h, 1824, and
he was therefore uearly sixty years of age.
He was married in Smithland, Kentucky,
removed from there to Paducah and came
to Cairo from there, in 1854. Soon after
coming here he embarked in business in
company with Mr. Solomon Littlefield,
but dissolved partnership toon after and
has since conducted the business by him
self, and his effirts have been attended
with that success that comes to true merit.
In 1800 he sold out his store to Capt. O.
D. Williamson (who still runs it in the old
place) and started where his present store
stands. Here he was burned out twice,
once in 1803 and again in 1807; but rebuilt
again each time and continued to prosper
as before. He has built seven or eight
houses in all in various parts of the city.
He was a businessman of tho strictest in
tegrity, of excellent judgment and the
greatest liberdity toward his competitors;
a man pleasantly disposed to all he met, a
steadfast frieud, generous to a fault, esteem
ed by all who knew him.
His wife and four grown childicn survive
him to moura his death, and they will be
joined in their sorrow by the community
