Chicaoo, Bept 6. Neither Mr. Armour
nor any number of tbe alleged dressed beef
"combine" appeared before tbe senatorial
committee Investigating the dressed beef
Industries yesterday. Mr. Armour, In an
Interview, snid: "t he reason we uiu not ap
pear U'f'Te tbe senatorial committee was
that we knew we could not expect fair treat
ment from the hands of Mr. Vest, who is
notoriously on record as opposed to tha
ilrwtl interests. We are perfectly
willing to appear before an impartial com
mittee and give them all information per
taining to our business that is not of a strict
ly private nature. "
Tbe ccmmiitee adjourned yesterday after
noon to meet to-morrow morning at Des
The Chairman Was Wroth.
It was eusy to see tbat Chairman Vest was
in no good humor when tbe committee met
yesterday, and tbe "Big Four" were not on
hand. Another thing that tended to in
crease the Missouri senator's aggravation
was (he refusal of one of tbe witnesses ex
amined in the morning Oeorge T. Will
iams, secretary of tbe Stock Yards company
-to answer a question. He bad been or
iered to produce a list of tbe names of tbe
toi-k holders of the company, but when he
took the witnesV chair he coolly announced
tbat be bad consulted a lawyer and decided
to refuse to produce the list. He was not
wanted any longer.
Vice President Sherman, of the Union
Stock Yards company, was tbe next wit
ness, but developed such a quantity of ig
norance as to points tbe committee was after
that be soon got bis release.
Had Knowledge of a "Combine."
Tbe most important witness examined was
Paul Danin, a young man who was formerly
a book keeper and a subordinate manager for
Nelson Morris. Ha testified that be saw an
agreement signed by Armour & Co., Nelson
Morris, and others, stating tbat on and after
a certain data prices on dressed beef would
be so and so in different states. Ha had a
general idea tbat the combination fixed prices
in about eight states.
Will Report to the Senate.
At the close of tbe session Chairman Vest
aid the committee could issue attachments
for the big ' shippers, but could not force
tbem to testify if tbey were brought before
tbem, therefore be proponed to report the
matter to the senate and leave it in their
band. Tbe penalty for refusing to obey a
senate committee's subpcana is a floe of from
$100 to 1,000, or impriaoument for from one
to twelve months.
A Telegram from Armour.
"I thiuk it is also proper to say," said Sen
ator Vest, -that I have tha following tele
gram receive ! from a gentleman of respecta
bility. It was my intention to bring it to
the attention of Mr. Amour had he been
present. 1 now desire it to be made part of
record. The telegram is dated Chicago,
Dec. 18, 1XH8, and la addressed to H. p.
l-ac-y, Freeland, Pa. It reads:
Cannot allow Schwahe to continue killing
live stock. If be will not stop, make other ar
raiigHments and make prices to get his trade.
Ahuoi;h Jk Co.
With reference to this telegram Mr. Ar
mour said yesterday: "The telegram tbat
Mr. Vest read this afternoon for the purpose
of getting it on the record was direct id to
our agent, whom we had a perfect right to
tell tbat he should not kill cattle if be sold
our dressed beef, and Is entirely stripped of
its force when it is understood that the man
was our own representative.''
Hrnator Vest's Comments.
Senator Vest, upon returning to the hotel
last evening, got back at the Chicagoans by
making the following statement to Tbe Her
ald reporter in his own handwriting:
"Mr. Armour's pretence that he was un
willing to appear before our committee be
cause of my hostility to tbe dressed beef In
dustry is very thin. I am only one member
of tbe committee, which is composed of five
senators, one from each of the great cattle
producing states of Illinois, Missouri, Kan
sas and Texas. It is as fair and Just a com
mittee as can be selected from tbe senate,
and one of tbe committee, Senator Far well,
is Mr. Armour'iaaownsraan.
".understand Mr. Armour says that tbe
tl. gram mt by bis firm to H. P. Lacey, at
Freeland, Pa., and which I read before tbe
committee, was sunt to his agent, and that he
bail a p irfect right to tell him that 'he should
not kill cattle if he sold our dreewd beof.' "
Mr. Vest here read the dispatch, an 1 con
tinue.): "Ho it seems Mr. Armour wanted to
got the trade of his representative, for, if his
explanation means anything, it is that
Scwabe was bis agent and not Lacey. This
is s.mply nonsense.''
iot the Cold Hhake.
To sum things up, tbe committee has been
treated with decided coolness by tbe big
peckers of this ity. Why they did not use
their power to oomr-t attendance is not
known, as they were reticent on that noinL
i he feeling of the men interested wee that.
Chairman V est was forniust Chicago, and
looking out for oints in the interest of St.
Lou ib, and this feeling was manifest in tbe
newspaper communte and bead linos.

THE FIRST BLOOD.
A London Striker Mortally
Shot by Policemen.
THE MEN THREATEN VENGEANCE,
KloUra Force tha Polleemea to Use Their
Pistols to Pre rent aa Attack on Labor
ers A Stormy Meeting of Barns Com
mittee Resnlta In a Decided Back
Down Prospect That Business Will
Soon Begin at Several et the Docks.
London, Sept 5. Blood was shed yester
day morning aa a consequence of the dock
laborers' strike, and the strikers are terribly
excited about it, tbe victim being one of
their number, and a policeman's pistol the
weapon used. Tbe event took place on the
Peninsular and Oriental company's dock.
Here a large number of men were at work
unloading a vessel and. the eight of tbe work
going on made the strikers frantic. At first
they contented themselves with applying in
sulting epithets to the workmen, but this
having no effect they started to attack them,
when tbe police interfered, and finding
notning else would keep tbem back, tbev
fired, wounding one man, whom tbe doctors
say will die.
Threats ot Vengeance.
The news of the fight spread among the men
like wnonre, and created tbe greatest ex
vitement Threats of vengeance were heard
on all sides. The men speak of tbe shooting
as "unprovoked murder," although eyo-wit-
nesses or tbe light are positive in the state
ment that the police drew then- revolvers
only when tbe strikers, who outnumbered
them ten to one, charged upon tbem with
tones and clubs. Even aftr tbe first fire
the men stood their ground, apparently an
certain whether to continue the attack or to
turn and flee. It was fortunate for the po
lice that at this critical moment the men
lacked a leader, for they certainly were not
wanting in courage to face the deadly re
volvers, pointed at tbem. With a leader to
give the word tbey would undoubtedly have
made short work of the handful of police
men who opposed tbem.
The Strikers Hard to Restrain.
Tbe strike committee met early yesterday
afternoon and were still in session at 2 a. m.
to-Aiy. Tbey discussed some new proposals
advanced by the wharfingers, but tbe most
serious businexs before the meeting was the
preparation of a manifesto denouncing ths
action of tbe polios in firing on the strikers
yexterday. Tbe committee had considerable
difficulty in agreeing upon the wording of
tnis manifesto, some of tbe most violent urg
ing mat it should call upon tbe strikers to
arm themselves in defense of their lives. It
is reported that Burns, the leader of the
strikers, is having great trouble to keep his
committee within bounds, and tbat a prop
osition to arm tbe strikers out of the funds
contributed by charitable citizens for food
was defeated by only two votes.
A SIGN OF WEAKENING.
The Dock Laborers Decide to Allow Men
to Go to Work.
London, Sept 5. Tbe strikers' commit
tee has decided to allow the men now out to
resume work on any wharf where 6 pence
is paid for ordinary work, 8 pence for over
time, and where tba "plus" on piece work is
equally divided between the journeymen
and tbe foremen. Thaaa are t)i tor lw
which the strife waa inaugurated, but not
withstanding tbe fact that at several of tbe
wharves tne strikers might have gone to
work on these terms any time during tbe
past ten days, tbe committee refused to al
low any man to go to work cntil tbe dock
companies had been brought to terms. The
consent now given is therefore accepted as a
sign of weakening, and the early collapse of
tue smite is again confidently predicted.
Wharflncers Coneodo tha Advaneo.
air. Ltioone, a wnamnger who em
ploys fully 700 dook laborers, has concedod
the advance, and it is expected that be will
bave a full complement of men at work to
morrow. Tbe managers of tbe Milwell and
tbe Royal Albert docks will, without
doubt, follow Lafoone's lead. Tbe lighter
men sun noia out.
