Chicago, Pec. 10. Tn convection with
the Rock Island strike the most important
development t y sterday was the confer
ence held at the Sherinnn . house between !
Chief Ramsey, of the Older of 'iViegr.-iphers;
Chief Wilkinson, of the Tmininen, and
Chief Clark, of the Order of Railwoy Con
duct' rs. The conference wns secret, nnd
that some serious step was considered is
evidenced by the persistent refusal of the
gentlemen wlio were present to reveal any
thing as to its nature or conclusion. Chief
Rim::cy left the Palmer Ilo-.ise at 2 o' lock
alone, and went immediate ly to the Sher
man House, where he was met by Wilkin
son and Clark and a representative of toe
Brotherhood of Locoiuot i e Kiiunneors. 1".,e
consultation, which took place intaeclnb
room, lasted till close upon 5 o'clock.
ConMilercfl a tieneraj Strike.
At ils conclusion Ramsey, when ques
tion il its to is object ami po-sihle results,
Bbsoliilely declined to discuss the subject.
One of 1 he oibcials liowcve.' Acknowledged
that il was called together for . lie pnrpo. o
of coiisidcrir.u wheilier or not a strike of
the switchmen, firemen, on rinccrs and con
duct ors as ;dvi-able. '-You may state,"
he said, "that wlule.we have, not reached
any decision i o fro into i i'ect atoi.ee. the
representatives of tiie onhrs mentioned
were favorably inclined to in.- idea, nnd
that if the I. ck Island cr.;..;any should
succeed in rcplm-inss oar men by non-union
hands to any l.iruc extent a s'rike anion?
the members of ti e various railroad or
guniza'ioiis on the line is inevitable."
How It May Kf I?rouht About.
Additional importance is given to the
conference referred to by the fact, that the
commiitee received atelcgrr.m from Wich
ita, Kan., Bating that s.v. n conductors
had tieen uucejemoniously dismissed fro;a
the sen ioe. The dispatch did not state the
details as to the cause of the dismissal, but
the committee presumes that the action of
the company was due to the refusal on the
part of the. conductors to take orders from
the new hands employed. Those in the
best position to judge of affairs declare that
if the strike of the telegraphers continues
it will be but a question of time till a
strike anions the other railroad men fol
lows. The engineers, conductors, liiemcn,
etc., find ample reason for a strike in the
declaration that it will r.nt he safe to run
their trains on dispatches received from
the "incompetent" operators whom they
allege the company has engaged.
Fact Mill at Losgprh il.
The possibility of 'the other r. Jlroad em
ployes walking out is practically the only
change in the condition of affairs so far.
While the company states emphatically
that but few of their men have quit their
keys. Chief Kanisey and his coilea ues as
sert with equal confidence, that practically
cyc.iy man has gone out, and these state
ments seem to be supported by the tele
grams they are receiving from different
poiu;on the. company's road. If the tele
grams can he relied on the Hock Island is
suffering mulch more inconvenience than
Conerul Manager St. John is inclined to
admit. For example, a telegram was re
ceived from Troy, Kan , yesterday after
noon, having evidently been sent by one of
the striking operators, which read: Must
heard message from Denver to Allen saving
no trains left there since 3 p. m. yesterday
on account of conductors and engineers
refusing scab orders. Kvcryl hing lovely."
St. John Admits Nothing.
On the. other hand General Manager St.
John assured all comers that there was no
strike. "We are doing business as usual,"
sain he, "and we know nothing of a strike.
A few operators may have left their sta
tions, but we don't feed their absence, and
our trains, both passenger and freight, are
moving on schedule time, except when
snowstorms have caused delay. We want
no operators, and have, authorized no inan
or agency to encage operators for us."
A Denial from Chief Kanney.
With reference to a dispatch from Den
ver stating that, a message was received
from the Chicago committee saying that
the switchmen would strike within '24
hours in Chicago, Kansas City, St. Joseph,
Denver and Omaha and all the principal
cities unless the difficulty was settled,
Chief liamsey denies that any such tele
pram was sent to any official at Denver.
He points out.too.that Brennan, mentioned
as grand master of the switchmen, holds
no such position and that t herefore the tele
gram is erroneous. He cannot account for
its publication and cannot imagine its
origin. It is curious nevert heless that the
telegram contains certain information
which subsequently proved to be correct,
as for example the meeting between Wil
kinson and Ramsey.
SWITCHMEN WILL NOT HELP.
An Officer of the t'nlon Compliment St.
John ConflirtlnK Claim.
A prominent officer of the Switchmen's In
dustrial Aid association said yesterday:
"There is no chance of our men on the Rock
Island going ont to help the telegraphers.
The officials of the Rock Island have al
ways treated us well, and General Manager
St. John is one of the best and easiest rail
road officials to approach in the country.
He will always listen to a grievance, and if
possible set it aright."
Bulletins of the Striken.
Two bulletins were issued by the strikers
last nighL The first was as follows, and
was addressed "To all dispatchers and
operators:" "Do not be discouraged if the
company cute wires out of your ofhoeor
puts a scab in your place. This is only
temporary. Stand firm and ye will win
sure. All reports leceived are most favor
able." The second was is aied at a late
hour and it is an follow s; "We are in better
shape tonight than at any ume since strike
began. Freight trail c ill ;;hei'.. A;.n
In train service will retiise to work ivitti
scabs if majority of you ivoonu loyal. '
Late Statement froui su John.
General Manager St. John w.'s not in the
least worried over the stare .f ati lies last
night. He said: uThe trouble is as good as
over, and it really was not wort h bothei inj;
about. The only strike seems to be over at
the Palmer House. I am afraid some of
the dispatches given out to the papers were
manufactured there. I have received a
dispatch from Assistant General Manager
Allen that the men on the Iowa division,
west of Brooklyn quit work at 2:30 yester
day morn !n. Mr. Allen telegraphed that
be had fiftv applications from new men.
and that every vacancy would be filled at 9

by the ineomjietency of a "scab" operator it

that lives were lost.
A New Operator Boycotted.
Dks Moinks, la., Dec 10. The lines of
the Rock Island are not seriously embar
rassed by t he strike. Not to exceed seventy
five men are out in the state, and quite a
number of tuem have asked to be reinstated.
The only trouble is reported from Stuart, a
freight division point forty miles west 'of

FIGHT FOR A LEGISLATURE.
The Vote of One Precinct in Montana Will
HELEXA, Mont, Dec. 10. The great fight
for the control of the Montana legislature
began before the supreme court yesterday.
The suit was brought by A. J. Leech, Rep.,
to compel tbe returning board of Choteau
county to issue to him a certificate as rep
resentative from that county. The board,
composed of two Republicans and one
Democrat, became convinced that, a large
number of votes had been purchased in
Uox Elder precinct and threw out the vote
of the precinct. This action gave the
county to Hamilton, Dem., by a majority
of seven votes.
A V. S. Senator Involved.
It became known after the canvass had
been completed that the Democrats h;ul se
cured a majority of one in the legislature.
Yesterday's fight was begun by the Repub
licans to knock out that majority and pave
the way for the return of a 'epublican sen
ator. A writ of mandamus was issued in
the cast-by Chief Justice Ulake l est week
during the court's vacation.
The ftemorrats Raise a Point.
Attorneys for Hamilton yesterday raised
the point that, under the state constitution
no single justice of the supreme court had
the right to issue a writ of mandamus, but
that it must be issued by the court during
one of its regular terms. The constitution
specifically confers the power to district
judges. The case was taken under advise
ment. Miss Ella Knowles, the brilliant
female lawyer, was one of the attorneys for

What O'born Will Probably Do.
Yesterday Thomas M. Patterson and

to Chief Justice Groesbeck, of the supreme

to use the returns presented by county
clerks, or show cause for the change. Gov
ernor Osborn will probably issue certifi
cates to all contesting Democrats for mem
bers of the legislature, and in that event
Wyoming t,x payers will have the pleas
