department respond, and about three
quarters of an hour later two engines were
engaged in fighting the flames, but the
strikers soon cut the hose and the steamers
were rendered powerless. The Lehigh
Valley officials then appealed to Brig. Gen.
Doyle for immediate aid.
Buffalo, Aug. 16. The first battalion
of the i-ixty-fifth regiment left their arm
ory at 1 o'clock this morning for the
Cheektonega freight yards. They were
followed later by the second battalion and
both battalions of the Seventy-fourth
reyiinent. At 2 o'clock this morning the
strikers were iu secret session at Gatn
niell's hail, but it was learned that no
more strikes were ordered at this meet
ing. Several small fires were started last
eveninir, but they were quickly extin
guished. Kew York Central lemandi Protection
At a late hour last niht Sheriff Beck
was notified by officials of the Xew York
Central and West Shore roads that they
would exjM-ct him to protect their proper

There is not the slightest doubt in the
minds of those posted in railway matters
but the Xew York Central and West

work unless the difficulty between the

Kntirely on Top.
BUFFALO, Aug lfi. Incendiary fires
lighted up the railway yards In and about
this city all Sunday niht. It i- estimated
that over 100 freight cms were destroyed.
The master of the Switchmen's union de
clares that the strikers are not responsi
ble for the fires, but if they are not direct
ly guilty (and most, people believe they
are) their sympathizers are, and it is
the opinion that if the strikers wanted the
vandalism to titop they could have it so.
Little progress was made yesterday by
the railway company in moving cars. Sev
eral engines were at work iu the yards of
the Lehigh Valley last evening, but they
did little work except to make up a few
trains and kept the yards clear. On the
Buffalo Creek road nothing was done.
There was no chance to do it, as no men
eould be had.
Stopped a Train From Moving.
During the afternoon Y'ardmaster Hues
ter, of the Erie, got everything in readiness
to push the freight that was blocking the
eastbound track out of the way, when it
was discovered that the switchmen, who
Were loitering everywhere, had set the
brakes. Hueater ordered the yard em
ployes to open them, but they respected
tbe angry gestures of those surrounding
the train and refused. "Then I'll do it
myself," said Huester, and mounting the
cars he loosened the brakes, only to have
them set again by a dozen different men
who clambered on the cars. Not satisfied
with this, theyjpequested the yardmaster
to desist or to be thrown out, and he de
cided to comply with their wishes. The
train therefore remained set, coupling pins
missing and keys gone out of the bulk
beads. The Claim of a Striker.
"It is not right to charge us with all
this wrong." declared one striker. "The
damage was not done by our men and we
are not responsible for it. We tried to
argue this thing peaceably for several
months, but when Grand Master Sweeney
and our grievance committee were grossly
Insulted by the Philadelphia and Heading
and the Erie officials, we had nothing else
left but strike. We want ten hours for a
day, with a dinner hour and the same pay
as now. That's what they have on the
D. L. and W. Central, Lake Shore. Nickel
piate, and W. N. Y. and P., and we want
It too. We exhausted all possible peacea
ble means before striking."
persuaded the New Kmployes.
It was expected that there would be
some interference with the Lehigh Valley
passeuger train, but it ran into the station
withotit a stop. It carried seventy-two
men picked up from along the Rending
system and they were taken to the United
States hotel, where rooms had been
engaged for them. No effort was made
to put them at work, as with the blockade
at William street it is impossible to move
any freight. During the day the men
seen by a commiltee of the strikers and
asked not to go to work. They agreed to
return to their homes if the lecul union
would pay their fares.
Trouble at Sayre, Pa.
SAYRK, Pa., Aug. lfr Sheriff Powell, of
Bradford county, accompanied by deputj
Convicts at In man Keleased and Stock
Nasiivillk, Teiiu., Aii. 16 The east
Tennessee :uiners are again on the war
path. About S o'clock yesterday morning
300 of them, heavily armed, marched into
Inman, a little mining town in Sequatchie
valley. Taeir object was well known aud
citizens packed up and ded. The mob
went to tbe coal mines And captured (ha
seventeen guards, marched them to the
stockadas and put them under guard. The
27 convicts who were at work were then
taken to Victoria, a little village near-by,
packed in box cars and started to Nash
ville. The telegraph wires had been cut
and pickets bad been posted so as to pre
vent interference with the business.
Shot at and Whipped a Courier.
Clarence Livingston, who had been sent
from Whitewell at midnight to notify the
Inman authorities that danger was near,
was discovered by pickets. His horse was
shot from under him as he tried to pass
on and bear the message entrusted to his
care, and he was caught and whipped. At,
this time no damage was done to property,
but they returned in the afternoon and
partly destroyed the stockade and houses.
The Sheriff (iives It I' p.
The sheriff of Marion county telegraph
ed to the governor last evening in reply to
the message ordering him to sum
mon assistance and arrest members of the
mob, that he was helpless and could do
nothing. The governor has not indicated
what further steps he will take, but says
he will go to the full limit of the law. lie
can only order out troops when called
upon by a sheriff for aid, and then the
memlK.-rs of the militia must be sworn in
by the sheriff as civil officers.
Further Vandalism C mmitted.
The miners at Tracy City yesterday
morning pulled the coke ovens out of the
ground and destroyed them, which is un
told damage. They say the mines shall
never agaiu be operated unless by free
labor. Tom Corrich. who led the miners
at Tracy, was leader of the same crowd at
Inmnn yesterday morning. Coal Creek.it
is said, is their next objective point. A
bloody battle is expected, as the 200 sol
diers at the garrison will fight.
Fault of the Legislature.
The convicts from luman arrived here
last night and were put in the states
prison. As there are over 1,000 and only
accomodations for they are packed
away like sardines in a box. Mr. Baxter,
vice president of the Tennessee Coal, Iron
and Railroad company, said yesterday:
"The company is willing to surrender its
lease contract and leave the state free to
make such disposition of the convicts as
the state authorities may deem best. The
company offered this to the last extra
session of the general assembly, but no
action was taken upon It. This offer has
stood open to the state authorities since
that date aud is now open to them."
THEY CALL FOR A BOYCOTT.
A. A. 1. S. W. Demands Rejected by the
PlTTsUCRG, Aug. 16. The Amalgamated
association committees which are calling
on the manufacturers to close up the scale
agreement are all demanding that a boy
cott of Carnegie's products be made part
of the contract. At J. Painter & Sons,
and the Republic Iron works the men
were firmly told that the boycott feature
would have to be left out or tbe firms
would be compelled to operate the mills
as non-union hereafter. After a brief con
sultation the committee agreed to with
draw the boycott demand.
Will Fight It In the Courts.
A member of the Carnegie firm said
yesterday that if any of the manufactur
ers agreed to the demands being made
for a boycott such action would immedi
ately bring the matter into the courts,
were suits for conspiracy would be enter
ed. He said, however, that they did not
believe they would meet with any trouble
on this account. "The Federation of
Ijibor," said he, "have declared that our
output is so inconsequential ' and bad
that it is not worth boycotting, and so
long as they,, take this cheerful view of
the matter both sides, I am sure, will be
Homesteaders Getting Restive.
The locked-out men at Homestead were
somewhat restive yesterday. Some of the
strikers pursued a non-union man and the
militia fired several shots to scare them
away. Epithets were exchanged over the
fence between the strikers and some of the
mill men; also between the strikers and
some men at work on tbe new bouse for
tbe non-union men.
Trouble Ahead for the It. A O.
Cumberland. Mil., Aug. 16. It is quite
probable that within the next week the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad will be offered
a new schedule of wages by the order of
Railway Telegraphers to sign. In tbe new
list higher salaries are asked by the men,
and the advance wanted will average $10
per month more than the present rate. If
the railroad company does not grant the
advance a strike along the entire line will
probably be ordered. About 2,500 operators
will be affected by the strike.
Chill Appropriates the Cash.
Washington', Aug. 16. Acting Secre
tary Adee, of the state department, has
received a telegram from Minister Egan
Ml Valparaiso saying that the Chilian
senate and chamber 'of deputies have
unanimously passed the appropriation for
the payment of claim growing out of
tbe Baltimore incident. Also that tbe
two legislative bodies bad approved tbe
treaty for a commission for settlement of
claims of American citizen against tha

New York. Aug. 16 A crucial test
of the policy of the government was made)
yasterday when Heidelbeck, Ickelheimer
& Co., who are looked upon as the best
exaruple of small profit gold expo rters,
indorsed 11,000,000 of treasury notes which
were issued on account of silver purchases
and demanded for them $l,000,0ti0 in gold
for shipment to Germany by today's
steamers. The treasury officials made no
demur, but paid out the $1,000,010 gold in
exchange for treasury notes, and the gold
was carted away and put on the steamer.
The transaction excited some comment, as
no home institution or home banking firm
has ever in the history of the govern
ment made a like demand on the treas
ury, and in some quarters an impression
prevailed that the exporting firm took
this step not to take the profit on the ship
ment, which in itself is too insignificant
Tor a banking firm to consider, but really
for the purpose of forcing a crisis.
Will Pay Gold On Demand.
Assistant treasurer Roberts was at the
tub-treasury while the gold for Germany
was being carted away. He admitted that
it was the first time that such ademand had
been made, although gold has heretofore
been given partly for old and partly for
new treasury notes. He said in reply to a
question, "Xo steps have been taken by
the administration to prevent or obstruct
the export of gold. Thegovernmentstands
ready to meet all its obligations in gold
and will pay them all in gold. Its free
.tcold balance now amounts to $112,000,000."
By this statement of treasurer Roberts, it
is clear that the government has already
decided on a plan to pay all the silver
treasury notes in gold if it is demanded.
A Hank Official's opinion.
Vice President Cannon, of the Fourth
Xational bank, said he did not think that
the gold surplus would be reduced at
present, but that it would be increased in
stead, as the treasury is now receiving
gold from the eastern banks for trans
shipment to the west, and in the west is
paying out currency on account of these
shipments. Hy this step last year the
government increased its gold holdiugs
SURE THING FOR FIELD.
Dr. McCnne Thinks lie Will Preside
Over tlie Seuate.
Washington, Aug. 16. Dr. C. V. Mc
Cune, chairman of the executive board of
the Farmers' Alliance, who is directing
the campaign of that organization as far
as it is controlled from this city, has fig
ured out to his own satisfaction that
whatever may be the fate of Weaver, the
Alliance candidate for president, Field,
their vice-presidential candidate, can
count his calling and election sure. "I
feel," said Dr. McCune yesterday, " that
Field's election is practically assured. He
is bound to be elected if the election of the
president is thrown into the house, which
is very likely to happen.
Keid aud Stevenson Ruled Out.
"The bouse would of course elect Mr.
Cleveland to the presidency. Then the
senate would have to select the vice presi
dent from the three candidates who had
receiv d the highest number of votes at
the polls. The constitution prohibits the
president aud vice president bot h coming
from the same state, and the house having
chosen Mr. Cleveland first, Mr, Reid would
be rendered ineligible. The senate would
therefore be compelled to choose betweeu
Mr. Sievenson and Mr. Field, aud there is
little room for doubt that they would se
lect the latter."
Will Bops the New House.
The People's party managers claim that
at the very lowest calculation they will
have 100 members in the next house
in addition to a number of Repub
licans and Democrats who will be pledged
to Alliance or People's party principles.
They expect to dictate the selection of the
next speaker and direct the policy of the
house. All the People's party and Alli
ance managers in Washington deny the
story that they Lave a secret, oatb-bouud
order known as the "B.ud of Gideon."
THE NEW DEAL IN MISSISSIPPI.
Out of 257, 305 of Voting Age There
Are Itut 76,742 Voters.
Jackson, Miss., Aug. 16. The net re
sult of the registration under the educa
tional aud poll tax provisions of the new
Mississippi constitution is as follows:
Whites over 21 years, 110,100; registered,
t.5,127. Negroes over 21 years, 147,205; reg
istered, S.Gib. In 1SS0 there were 130,27$
colored voters, a colored majority of 22,
024 Every county in Mississippi now has
a white majority. Thirty-three counties
have less than 100 negro voters Yazoo
county with six thousand negroes of voting
age, has only nine registered voters, or one
to each oti".
No Danger of Negro Domination.
Noxubee has four colored voters, or one
to each 1,500 colored men. In Lowndes
there is one colored vote to each 310 men.
In tbe southern tier of counties on the gulf
about one negro man in eight or ten is
registered, which is the greatest average.
Elections have become so certainly Demo
cratic in Mississippi under the new consti
tution that many of the whites do not feel
interest enough to register, and one-third
of them have forfeited the electoral fran
chise for the approaching presidential elec
tion. BUCHANAN RUNS INDEPENDENT,
