Chicago, June 10. A pitched battle has
tMken place between strikers and employes
of the contractors on the drainage canal.
The fight took place at Romeo, the strik
ers coming down from Ienjont and others
coming from the north, they being divided
into two mobs. They at once began firing
on the contractors and their men. Coming
from the north, they drove off the men on
section 10. The men retired lighting, font
they had only gone a short distance when
they were set upou by another division of
the strikers. The workmen returned the
fire of the strikers and several were killed.
Three of the men were killed in Will coun
ty, two of them in the Illinois und Michi
gan canal, one was lying on the tow-path
and two others in the bushes just across
the line in Cook county.
Four Men I'ntully WtmiitlttJ.
The list of wounded is hs follows: Mich

Sheriff and lralnage lioard Confer.
The first news of the battle and its at
tendant fatalities reached this city in a
telegram to I'resident enter, of the
drainage board, and was delivered to him
at a conference on the situation taking
place in the drainage board rooms. In ad
dition to a iiumlKTof contractors who were
present, several quurrvmen were at the
meeting, tog.-iher with Sheriff Gilbert, of
Cook county; Sheriff Sharp, of lnipa.ee
count v, and Sheriff Ileiuieby. of Will
county. All these men hail insisted that
it was n proper case for the governor and
recommended . military interference,
Sheritt Gilliert said that he hail no funds at
his disposal to pay for the 1,' deputies
that would lie ro juired and the other
sheriffs joineil him in thus opinion. Sit;riff
Gilbert said lie would at once cll upon
Gov. Alt geld for aid.
AltKfhl Will Cull Out the TroK.
A dispatch received from Governor Alt
geld says he has decided to cull out the
Second regiment. A previous dispatch was
of an entirely different tenor, in that the
governor refused to call out the militia, for
the reason, as lie stated, that, the authori
ties in charge, from all tlie fa-ts he could
learn, had so far the Itest of the encounter.
He said that the deputy sheriffs appeared
"to foe holding their own and the only jier
sons so far injured were those of the strik
ers' party. He also said it was the usual
custom in similar cases for the IocjU au
thorities to attempt to shift the responsi
bility that should rest upon them, and ho
urged that the sheriff himself see to the
suppression of all violence.
LATER. Tlie governor has ordered the
Second and Third regiments to the scene of
STRIKERS TELL ANOTHER STORY.
They Say They Were Kntlrely Peaceable
and Were Not Armed.
The strikers tell an entirely different
story from that given in the foregoing.
They say they were to hold a meeting to
discuss the situation; tnat they were going
to that meeting to foe held at Romeo
unarmed and were attacked without prov
ocation. Tlie facts of the situation previ
ous to the shooting are that for a week the
strikers have lieen visiting the drainage
canal camps driving off the men 'at work
and Iieating those who refused to join them.
The contractors finally armed their men,
mostly negroes, with shotguns, rifles and
revolvers, and told them to protect them
selves. There is no strike of the employes of the
drainage canal contractors; it is among the
quarrymen; and none of the canal lafoorers
have quit except on the compulsion of the
rioters. Having lieen armed the latorers in
the employ of Ixtcker, Smith & Jackson,
King Bros, and Johu McCormick posted
lookouts with field glasses to give notice
of the approach of a mob, and when the
party going to the. meeting at Romeo, as
alleged, came in sight the hostilities were
Tlie strikers say tney were surprised as
they approached to foe met with a volley
of bullets. They deny that they fired a
shot or mnde a hostile demonstration; but
at the first shot they started to run; the
negroes pursued, firing. An hour later
another party of strikers, also on peaceable
designs intent, approached, and when
-within 500 feet 100 rifles turned loose on
them. Many of them fell at the first fire,
while those uninjured started to flee. They
were almost surrounded, however, and as
the fire continued they became thoroughly
bewildered. At last an avenue of escape
was discovered and then began the mad
race for life.
The negroes gave pursuit, firing as they
ran, bringing down a hapless striker every
few rods. For a mile and a half the chase
was kept up, and marking the road for
this distance with a trail of blood. Two of
the wounded strikers were saen to fall into
the canaL The others who were killed out
right died where they fell into the road
way. While the battle was in progress j
LiUrtwig rvruger, a section man employed
on the Santa Fe road, was mistaken for a
striker and shot through the abdomen.
While the canal laborers were chasing
the strikers along the canal twenty of the
latter were overtaken and made prisoners.
They were locked in a freight car and from
there taken to the commissary department
of King Bro. 'scamp. One of tlie Kings
turned the men over to the chief deputy
sheriff of Will county. The chief refused
to take the men into custody until he
knew what they had done to foe arrested.
King said if he did not take them there
would be more foloodshed, and to protect
them the chief locked them in a box-car
and sent them to Joliet. Thirty-two of
the strikers are locked up in the Will
JAMES GORDON BENNETT HURT.
Thrown from His Carriage and Very Serl
PARIS, June 10. While James Gordon
Bennett, proprietor of the Xew York Her
ald, was driving his horses lecame un
manageable and one wheel of his carriage
struck a gate post violently. Mr. Dennett
was thrown from the seat and struck his
head on the iron step. He was unconscious
when picked up. The wound on his head
is a severe one, but Dr. Robins says there
is nothing in his condition to cause alarm.
After the medical examination Mr. Ben
nett asked the doctor to be perfectly frank
with him. After learning that his condi
tion was serious Mr. Bennett added a codi
cil to his will and then announced that he
was ready for the operation. Since the
Ojieration Mr. Bennett has had no fever
and his friends feel very sanguine over his
recovery. Mr. Bennett is said to have lieen
seriously hurt in the abdomen, hut only
conflicting statements as to the nature of
his injuries can be obtained.

IMPORTANT STATEMENT ISSUED.
Ieclaratlon That the Fair In Complete by
All the leading state executive commis
sioners to the World's fair have signed a
circular to the people of the United States
urging them to visit the fair, which is de
scribed as complete. The stories of extor

The text of this circular has been revised
and reversed during the last week, until it

met with the approval of all the commis
sioners, and the printed copies have now
lieen issued. Each of the executive com
missioners will receive a sufficient number
to lie enabled to distribute them to all
newspapers in their respective states and
territories. The press will lie asked to give
the widest publicity of this statement.
Its importance is derived from the fact
that it does not emanate from either of the
bodies that are managing the fair, the lo
cal directory or the nationnl commission.
It is the testimony of the commissioners,
each of whom is resjionsihle directly to the
board in his own state. The eople are ex
pected to place confidence in this unbiased
statement of tlie present status of the
World's fair, as the result of personal in
vestigations by the state commissioners.
