Dru Til. June 20. The workmen at the
Minnesota mines at Tower struck last
week and Friday stopped the engines and
took possession of the mine, driving off
ny one who attempted to work and gen
erally doing as they pleased. The strikers
are nearly all Austrians and other for
eigners and are armed, and defiant, declar
ing that the work shall not go on until
demands are acceded to. The civil author
ities at Tower being two weak to cope
With rioters, called on the governor and
he ordered Company A of this city to pro
ceded to the scene of the disturbance. In
the meantim? the sheriff proceeded to en
roll deputies to do duty at Tower.
ShenfT and Deputies flagged.
The slierilT got his force of deputies col
lected and went to Tower Saturday, arriv
ing there on a special train Saturday
evening sixty men in all. The posse
formed in line on Ston1; Hill and awaited
the coming ot the strikers Previous to
this a detachment had been sent on the
hill to start the fires under the boilers at
No. 4 engine house. Xo sooner diil the
strikers see smoke issuing from the
smokestack than they formed in a body
and proceeded toward the mine. (In see
ing deputies lined up injtheirpath the
body broke into four detachments and
completely surrounded the sheriff's posse,
coming together from four side. The dep
uties immediately surrendered, and left
for town. The sheriff's posse was armed
Militia Arrives 0B the (irouml.
Yesterday morning at 4 o'clock forty
members of Company A, under command
of Captain Gear, arrived on a special train
and are stationed at the old machine shop
to await developments, as the strikers
were not expected to take any decided ac
tion until today, when Manager Racon
Bays the miners will start to work. Another
special with Company I of the West Du
luth militia are expected.
Threaten to f'se Dynamite.
The strikers have possession of all pow
der and dynamite belonging to the Minne
sota company and say they will use it if
necessary. They also claim that they will
have all the milters at the Chandler mine
at Ely up in arms to assist them in the
strike, but trains between Tower and Kly
will be carefully guarded to prevent auv
help from that quarter. The citizens of
Tower and Soudan have laid it! a plenti
ful sup': of ammunition and will lie
ready to receive any hostile demoostra
tiou against their private property from
Twenty Leaders Arretted.
It was whispered around yesterday that
this morning a detachment will be sent
out to every miner's bouse and every man
compelled to join thestrikers' forces. The
situation at present is the most critical it
has been for the past three days. Water
in the mine is rising steadily and much
damage done already to machinery and
other property. Twenty of the leaders
have been arrested, and will be brought to
Duluth. Among the parties arrested was
"calumet,"" one of the principal leaders of
Finns and Swedes Ask rrotectinn.
A great many of the Finns and Swedish
miners have asked the management to
protect their homes and families. Fear is
entertained here that there is a plot to
blow up the tngine midshaft Ionises, as
large quantities of dynamite used for
blasting has been taken from the maga
zine. The strikers are defiant and not the
least overawed by the presence of troops.
TWO RICH STAKES WON.
The Derby at Garfield Park Chicago
Suburban at Coney Island.
Chicago, June 20. The was a great
race at Garfield Park Saturday and ac
cording to the man who estimates such
thing 80,000 people saw it. The race was
the "Derby" every track must have its
Derby now and the stake was worth to
the winner so it is said 20,0)0. The
track was muddy a soft ooze some dis
cribe it and so was the time. The dis
tance was miles and it took the winner
8 n inutes 40 seconds togetover the dis
tance. YoTambien was the winner, while
Corrigan's entries Huron, Lew Weir and
Cicero were not in it even for a place.
The Coney Island Suburban.
New Yohk, June 20. Montana won the
auhurh.ui at the Coney Island course Sat
urday, beating such horses as Poet Scout,
Major Doiuo, Lnmplighter, and Kingston.
There was only a head between Montana
and Major llomo at the finish, but it was
enough to make the former's owner about
$16,000 richer, while Major Homo's share
of the stake was 15,000 and Lamplighter as
third won 2,000. The distance was lf
miles, and the time was very respectable

characterized its utterances have evident

E HILL MEN SUDDENLY CONFIDENT.
They Say They Have Cleveland Beaten
and Are Feeling Good.
The Hill men developed a sudden confi
dence last evening which puzzled their
opponents and set them wondering what
was under v ay. It w is evident from their
expressions that something gratifying
had occurred. They vre reticent about
it even to their own ft iends, but to one of
the eastern anti-Cleveland men Sheehan
unbosomed himself o fur as to say: "I
can't tell yon how, but Cleveland is beaten
tonight." This conference is supposed to
be the outcome of missionary work which
has been quietly done. Indeed the Hill
men have been very quiet. Their men
were told not to shou , and their delega
tions' arrivals were unheralded by music.
Hasn't a Doubt About It.
General Sickles, when asked the mean
ing of the policy pursued, said: "A good
general never dislays h s line of attack to
an enemy." District Attorney Ridgeway,
of Kings county, said 1( st night, "We are
feeling good tonight Ik cause Cleveland is
beaten. There is not ai y doubt about it.
He is beaten. He cannot be nominated on
tiie first ballot, and after the first ballot
his strength will be dissipated. I tell you
there isn't any doubt about it. He is
Reply to the Cleveland Figures.
The leaders gave out a statement review
ing the services and the strength of David
B, Hill. Among other things it instated
that David II Hill was dected lieutenant
governor in New York i; 1S.S-J by a plural

A conference of southern men, delegates
and others, was held at tl e Palmer house
last night. Then- were present Represent
atives Allen and CatchingS, of Mississip
pi; Clark, of Alabama: De egate Owens, of
Kentucky; St. Clair, of W -st Virginia, and
several others. The statement was made
that every southern state v tsjrepresented at
this conference. It was an anti-Cleveland
meeting and a few defect i as from the ex
president's ranks were rep irted.
Trying to Brine Onl Gorman.
A tremendous effort was made last
night to bring out Mr. Gorman, but so far
it has been unsuccessful. A constant
stream of people poured i ito hi- private
rooms at the Palmer II use last night,
and he held a continuous ovation. Gor
man's friends, when asked when he would
be formally presented, sail in a knowing
way, "Wait until tomorrow."
VI bat Mnkes Them Bo Happy.
The Gorman movement has assumed
unexpected proportions, and it is whispei .-d
about that the deal over which the Tam
many men are smiling so broadly is a com
bination of Hill and Gormm strength on
Gorman. This would draw votes from
Cleveland in the south, whe e Gorman lias
peculiar strength. The plan, it is said, is
to put enough favorite sons in the field to
prevent the nomination of Cleveland on
the first ballot, and then, if necessary, to
cast the strength of Hill to Gorman. New
York is bound to cast her vote for Hill on
the first bal lot, unless he withdraws his
name, and he has said (this s stated with
authority, that he will not withdraw his
name before the first ballot.

The conference last night was the long
est that has yet been held by the Cleve
land managers. All the di legations iu
which Cleveland has a partial vote were
represented and there was a full and free
discussion of the situation in nil its de
tails The presence of a delegate from
Illinois was especially significant. An
Indiana delegate reported tl at Senator
Voorhees had telegraphed to Indianapolis
that Indiana would go for Cleveland.
When ex-Secretary Whitney ei lergedfrom
the conference room for a moment at mid
night and was told of the cl litns of the
Hill men that they had Cleveland beaten,
he said: "There is absolutely nothing in
it, and we have gone throut h the list
thoroughly tonight, including those re
garded as doubtful, and which lad not be
fore been considered, and it c in be said
that we have 550 votes absolutely that we
can hold to the end. There is no More doubt
of Cleveland's nomi nation than of the fact
that I am standing here."
Some Losses and Galni .
The Hill men in their estim te gave
Cleveland ten votes from Mississippi The
delegation got in last night and according
to a personal canvass there isn' a Cleve
land man on it. On the other hand the
Connecticut delegation formal y decided
to cast its twelve votes for Cleveland,
where only nine were claimed. The abso
lute refusal of ex-Governor Campbell to
be used against Cleveland is working to
the latier's interest, and the ex-p -esident's
friends in the Ohio delegation eh im a ma
jority now. All these matters w ill be Bet

New York State SenatorWilliam L. Brown
arrived here last night. He said: "I am
for the Democratic party, Tammvny Hall
and Grover Cleveland. 1 have no persoual
dislike to Hill, but I believe that the
people want Mr. Cleveland. If he gets
beaten, that is their business. Mr. Hill
would stand a better chance of being
Dresident if he should wait for four
Michigan Records Its Choice.
The Michigan delegation held a meeting
yesterday afternoon at the Palmer house.
It was called for the purpose of putting
the delegates on record for Cleveland. A
story had circulated during the afternoon
that several of the delegation had mani
fested an intention to go to Hill. Every
district but one was represented at the
meeting by delegates or alternates, and
all of those present pledged themselves to
vote for Cleveland.
Arrival or Senator Palmer.
Senator John M. Palmer arrived here
just before midnight from Washington.
He said that lie had found no reason to
change the position indicated in his former
utterances. There was no candidate from
Illinois who would contest the nomination
of Grover Cleveland. He himself was cer
tainly not a candidate in any way or in
any sense. In his opinion the nomination
of Cleveland would furnish all the neces
sary strength to carry Illinois; the name
of Gray for . OOnd place would secure the
electoral vote of Indiana, while should
lioies be named Iowa and Wisconsin
would certainly be found in the right col

The Governor's Friends in Good Spirits
As to (he Silver Issue.
The programme of the adherents of
Governor lioies is a simple one: "No deals,
no dickering, no combinations until after
the first ba.lot lias determined the rela
tive standing of the various candidates.'
To tins policy they are strictly adhering.
To visitors they sound the praise of the
governor, and their hopes are high that
their work will bring forth results. They
have several telegrams from delegations
en route notifying them of ndherents in
those delegations. They are in good spir
its aud certain cf eighty to ninety votes on
first Lai lot.
Some Reports That Harass.
The leaders of Hoies, campaign say that
they have been Considerably harassed by
thecirciilation of reports that their can
didate is unsound on the silver question,
ana also that his former affiliations tended
toward making him as much of a Repub
lican as a Democrat. This phase of the
situ, tion was discovered at a meeting of
the leaders during the day, and John C.
Kelly, of Sioux City, who was chairman of
the committee on resolutions in the state
convention t hat instructed for Boies, and
who is a strong anti-free silver man, was
deputized to give out a statement in reply.
Silver Qnestioa of No Moment.
Mr. Kelly said last night: ' Why should
the silver question affect Boies at all?
With fr. e silver Missouri here pledged to
a goidite, and single standard New York
fighting for a silverite, there is no reason
to think that the silver question will be of
any moment in the campaign. Men are
not sincerely in earnest about it. It is not
nn accepted trouble, at least. The Repub
lican platform was designed not to make
it au is-ue, and if Cleveland should lie
nominated the only people who can get
any benefit out of it would be the third

at the home of his father-in-law, Cyrus

The cause Kmmon's Blaine death was
blood poisoning ari-ing from a disease of

of his visit to Minneapolis during the con

incident thereto. Ex-Secretary Hlaine
