of "Gun-Play" by tbe Strikers. .
Findlay, O., Aug. 22 The strike on
the Lake Erie and Western railroad is ex
tending, and unless some terms are soon
"greed upon the entire line will be block
aded, pnssenger trains and all. Thursday
the yardmen iu this city quit work, join
ing the strikers and dinmniling pay for
extra work. The agent and his ofike
force were busy throwing switches and
handling cars, which are transferred to
other lines and rushed through. The
officials of the road refuse to talK regard
ing the mntter, and theircontinued silen e
causes the strikers to fear that a move is
on foot to hire men to take their placei,
and that it will be sprung on them almost
A Blockade of Grain Cars.
A dispatch from St. Mary's reports a
similar state of nffuirs existing there. An
other from Lima, O., says.that owing to tbe
protracted strike on the Lake Erie and
Western the main shops of that road, lo
cated there, shut down Thursday. This
throws 3n0 more men out of employment,
but, as the road is practically tied up,
there was no worl for them. The traffic
of the line has, wherever possible, been
diverted to competing roads, but hundreds
of carloads of grain are lying along the
track, with no relief in sight. General
Manager Bradbury returned home yester
day, and is now looking closely into the
Threaten to Hold Passenger Train.
Trainmaster Cook posted a notice to
the men, stating that all who wished to
do so eoald retnrn to work. He gave
them until midnight, and stated that
after that hour those not returning would
be discharged This action has created
some excitement among the men, but they
are very quiet aud firm, and show no
Btgns of weakening. Some threaten to
hold passenger trains if the management
refuse their demands much longer.
ON THE INDIANA LINES.
Hiring New Mm to Take tbe Placet of
IXPIANAPOLIS, lad., Aug. 03 Thursday
night General Superintendent Hill and
Master of Transportation Bell, of the
Lake Erie & Western, left for Lafayette,
where they attempted to move trains
early yesterday morning. A force of (K
trainmen has been secured from various
surrounding points, and no tronble is an
ticipated from the strikers, most of wh( tu
intimated that they will return to work.
The method adopted by the men to enforce
their demands is not sanctioned by their
own rules or those of the federation, and
they have no support from this qum-it r.
May Return to Work.
The men may return to work, having
the assurance of the management that
their demands will be fairly considered.
Those who refuse to receive time checks
will be discharged. The strike has not
spread to tort Wayne, Cincinnati and
Louisville as was reported. Private ad
vices received here state that President
Kamsey, of the Peoria aud Pekiu Union,
has secured enough switchmen to break
up the strike at Peoria. The strike
presented no new phases last night. No
trains were moved yesterday at Lafayette,
and Superintendent Hill, who was, there,
states that no effort was made to run a
train. None vt the strikers offered to re
turn to work. Employment bureaus at
Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis, Cincinnati
and Cleveland hare lieen enlisted and
have hegun to hire men who will co to
Lafayette. No violence is anticipated.

New Men Coming.
Teoria, LK, Aug. Si There was no
practical change in the strike situation
yesterday. Owing to an error in tele
graphing, th? men who were to tiike the

from the yards of the Peoria uud Pckin
Union road by deputy sheriffs and are ill
drawn up in a long line aloug the Chi

Het Majesty Visits the French Admiral's
LoxudlT, Aug. 2i Yesterday Queen Vic
toria ruitde her formal inspection of tha
French fleet in Osborne Bay. The fleet
was dra va op inline flying the French
and British flags, and every officer and
sailor a his post. Admiral Gervais re
ceived h it majesty on board his flagship,
tbe Marengo. As the queen reached the
deck of --he vessel the cannon of the fleet
thundered a royal and imperial salute.
Her majesty was shown through the Mar
engo, a:id expressed herself as highly
pleased with all that she saw. The waters
were alive with excursion steamers, and
the shorjs lined with people to witness the
Tender of French Susceptibilities.
The B Ttish vessels, led by the flagship
Duke of Wellington, also took part in the
display, which was the most magniiicent
ever seen in the Solent. Last evening
the officers of the French fleet were enter
tained at dinner by the admiral, the Earl
of Clanwiliiam, and the naval officers of
the port, the banquet taking place at the
admiral-y house. At first there was
thought of having the banquet on board
the Iluke of Wellington, but it was feared
that the name might ba suggestive of the
memories of Waterloo. After the banquet
there wt.s a ball in the town hall, Ports
mouth, given by the naval authorities.

San antomo, Tex., Aug. Judge
Hoy Bet.n, of Langley, has beeu arrested
for smu.'gting. It is alleged that he has
been cot cerned in running horses from
Mexico nto the United States. He is one
of the n ost celebrated characters of the

WORK OF THE RAIN-MAKERS.
Ilallooin Explode and Itain Falls.
Nothing Has Yet Keen Proved.
Midland, Tex., Aug. 22 The raip
makers discharged two balloons at 2 p. m.
Thursday. At 4 p. m. a good rain fell,
the clot (Is gathering from the north and
west. Some claim that the explosion and
the rain were respectively cause and ef
fect. It rained on Tuesday last from the
same p-neral direction, and on Wednes
day the -e were clouds, but no rain. Many
citizens claim that according to the ordi
nary course of nature cumulus clouds and
perhaps rain may be expected each even
ing. The circumstance of Thursday seems
to favor the experimenters, yet nothing
has ben proved. The elaborate pro
gramme at first mapped out by the
scientists of the party seems to have
grown mpracticabie because no allow

There is a large quantity of explosive ma

is fearfully dry except in spots.

Advised to Hold Wheat.
TOPEKA, Kan , Aug. 23 Prank Mc
Grath, president of the Farmers' Alliance
of Kausas. stirred up a big row in the
Alliance Commercial convention yester
day. He declared that it was time for
them to quit howling about calamity and
talking repudiation. He said his otlice
was besiegid with letters every day frnm
people in the east who wanted to know
whether the Kansas farmers are really
repndiators and whether they really in
tended to confiscate everything that did
not belong to them. Of course he ha t to
write ba;k to these inquirers that the t.i.k
bout repudiation was nil wind or sensa
tional lies from the newspapers of tluir
enemies. He thought it was time to qi it
talking about bttrviug farmers of Kausas
and leil the truth.
Views of a "Oalamit yite."
Most cif his remarks were directed at
Fred S. Bailey, AUiiace lecturer, who
had made the opening speech, aud had
roasted the loan companies very severely.
A caiaaiityite answered Mctirsth. His
idea was that the mortgage men were ras
rals, and the Kansas people were none too
hard on that. 11a would place matters in
tuch shape the loan company could take
no advantage of the farmers, and thought
talking calamity was all right. Bailey
said that the Alliance people were not re
pudiates, but they proposed to keep even
with the loaa companies, ft looked for a
time s though Mciirath was getting the
worst of it..
Where the Mortgagor Was Cnte."
But Hammers, of Kiowa county, came
ti his rescue, and read statistics showing
that Bailey had overestimated the farm
ers' indebtedness. Easter, of Osage, toot
np McGrath's side declaring there wete
just as big rascals am mg the farmers
ss there were among the moneyed men.
He tcid of numerous instances where
men mortgaged their farms for more than
they ost them, lived oa them as long as
the mortgage would allow, let everything
goto rack and ruin snd only moved olf
n hen the mortgage was foreclosed.
Came Near Having a "scrap."
At this poiut N'uah Allen, of Wichita,
finding that McGruth was getting the Ut
ter of the light, went for the slate presi
dent. He was not a repudiator. but if
saving the property of the mortgagor
debtor from the avarice oT the money
Lwiier was repudiation he would repudi
ate The row became very pers uial and
for a few minutes it was thought 11c
Grath and Bailey would engage iu a per
sonal eneouuter. The debate went 011 for
some time and during the talk, when it
became more calm, the farmers were earn
estly advised to hold their wheat until
litxt May or June.
The Resolutions Adopted.
Finally resolutions were adopted saying
that as "in the Alliance Mutual Benefit
association, the American Live Stock as
sociation, thpAliiance Excbauge company,
tbe Alliance Ben -fit society, the Farmers'
Alliance Benefit association, and the Mu
tual Protective association we have co-operative
organizations worthy the conti
dence and support of every good citizen,
therefore, resolved, that further enterprise
in the direction of combined effort by the
people to transact their own business wiih
their own capital iuall directions iu which
pucctssful effort can he made are just and
cecessary, aud deserves the encourafe

freely of bis crime. During a talk with

no outside influence we would have got
along much better."

rain and wind storm that this city has
experienced in five years came yesterday

an hour. Trees were torn up and small
buildings leveled, while iu' two instances

ceptible shock of an earthquake in tha
eastern part of the city which caused a
violent trembling of the houses.
Talking of patent medicines
you know the old prejudice.
And the doctors some of
them are between you and us.
They would like you to think
that what's cured thousands
won't cure you. You'd be
lieve in patent medicines if
they didn't profess to cure
everything and so, between
the experiments of doctors,
and the experiments of patent
medicines that are sold only
because there's money in the
" stuff, " you lose faith in every
thing. And, you can't always tell
the prescription that cures by
what you read in the papers.
So, perhaps, there's no better
way to sell a remedy, than to
tell the truth about it, and
take the risk of its doing just
what it professes to do.
That's what the World's
Dispensary Medical Associa
tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., docs
Golden Medical Discovery,
Pleasant Pellets, and
Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy.
If they don't do what their
makers say they'll do you
get your money back.
