Yet There Was Much Hesitancy in
Obeying the Order of the
LO3 Angelas, July 9.— The local situa
tion is amicably settled now aud railroad
officials are turning their attention to open
ing up the overland lines with all possi
ble dispatch, thoueh the Southern Pacific
Company manifests an inexplicable re
luctance te try tbe'experiment of sending
ireigut or passenger trains beyond South
ern California. The leeal developments
r f the last lew days, however, have caused
them no little uneasiuess aud the cli
max came to-day when, after a
very tlong consultation witii the
IMstrict Attorney aud Judge Ross, they
premised to 6end a freight train to Yuma,
;i regular train to San Francisco and an
otlier (iverlat.d via the Sunset route. II id
the Federal authorities not taken a firm
and determined stand there is no aoubt
that si'ch an intention would not be held
for some time at least. liut the Govern
ment menns business. "Ifs" and "buts"
are out of the quesuor, and the United
States mails ami interstate commerce
shall not be blockaded.
District Attorney George J. Dpnis would
not swerve either way from his position,
and will not listen to unreasonable ex
enses. He a-ke.i why theSonthern Pacific
canuo! at least try (he experiment of send
ing out mail nnd reeular freight trains
via Yuma. There are no large bodies ol
>t,rikers alone that route, an>] no trouble
bus been anticipated at any time over
the Southern line. The railroad people
could not answer or show just cause
why they should not be punished for
stupuing tbe mails and interstate com
merce in th»t direction, and so the
ntendents repaired to tbe yards and
made uo a freight train for Yuma and a
passenger train for the same route. They
then asked for Deputy Marsnnls to travel
with all overland trains and were prom
ised ample protection. Fifty deputies
were ordered to acci mpany the San Fran
cisco train and to arm themselves with
Winchester rities. This encouraged the
railroad men and patient passeagers. who
remained on the train for five days at the
depot, and a flurry of excitement wa^ cre
ated around the town. Later, however,
the order regarding lifles was counter
manded, and the time for starting the
train north was again indefinitely post
District Attorney Denis claims that the
position of the Government officials in this
district bas not changed in any respect
since the commencement of this movement.
"All persons will be prosecuted," said he,
"for violating the laws of the Un'ted
States, no matter who they may be. The
strikers have been indicted by the Grand
Jury for conspiring to ob-truct the mails
and in conspiracy in restraint of in
terstate commerce. The Government
now inquires if there are any other
violations of the law, either . by
the strikers or the railro; d officials, and to
that end inquires why the interstate com
merce of the country Is paralyzed. It has
aever been pretended in this district that
the inability of the railroads to get men to
move their trains is not a defense to the
charge of oDstiucting the mails and inter
state commerce. So far in this district
there has been no interference whatever
l-y-any person or persons with the process
of the courts. I have yet to hear
ot a single freight-train being obstructed
within this judicial district. The Govern
ment authorities in this district have un
fllnehiisgly said that this Government will
not take sides, but w ill punish nil alike,
aad that remains the attitude so far as the
Southern District of California is con
cerneil. I repeat that all I intend to do is
to have the laws of the United States
courts obeyed if mere Is power enough in
this country to have them obeye-l, regard
less of person."
It is evident this evening that the South
ern Pacific Company fears the department
of justice of Southern California, and
with very good reason. United States Spe
cial Counsel Call If* counsel in the present
case«. He was in the same office when he
fought the Southern Pacific on the land

establishing the right of the Gov

Only two weeks since a case he prosecuted
before Judge Ross resulted In taking

The Santa Fe overland train left this
morning with mails and a Pullman coach,
in which were six passengers. It is the
third < verland from the La Grande sta
tion for Chicago since the strike began.
The Government is not satisfied with the
running of the mail and passenger trains
on the hanta Fe, and consequently freight
for Arizona and beyond will go out im
mediately, or as soon as competent crews
can be secured.
The condition of affairs so far as th«
-trike is concerned is remarkable. A. R. U.
men are praised on all sides for their ex
cellent behavior. The Mayor, Dis
irict Attorney, Colonel Shafter and
even the railroad superintendents
have only good words to say for them.
They keep away from the depot?, and Dot
nn arrest has been made in their ranks.
Trains come and go as usual, only tbe
Santa Fe overland and the Santa Barbara
mail trains being guarded by troops.
The Southern Pacific had its regular
local service in operation to-day, but no
attention was given to trains that made
fifteen round trips and in so doing raised
the total of arrivals and departures to
thirty in one day. The locals of the
Santa Fe line were also running on or
near schedule time without molestation.

strikers will then demand that they
be taken back in a body and another
difficulty will be presented. Two union
engineers on the Sauta Fe took their eu
giues out to-day with scabs. McNeill went
out on the overland run, and Shortly be
fore noon Harry Knott, regular engineer
on the kite-shaped track, left the strikers'
ranks and took a train arourd the valleys.
His old fireman went with him. Some ex
citement was caused by this news among
tlm striker?, who said little, but evidently
felt bitterly over the surprise.
All the A. R. U. men met this afternoon
and adopted the following: resolutions,
which were addressed to the Merchants'
Association of Los Angeles:
We. like yourselves, realize the great damage
resulting io Hie industries of Southern Califor

good that can be accomplished by a court of

place Hi* our humble opinion that if your re«olu

of necessity be unconstitutional, according to
section 1 of the thirteenth ainendmeut, which
reads as follows: "Neither slavery nor involun
tary servitude, except as a punishment for a
crime whereof the i<ai ty shall have Dfeu duly
convicted, shall exist witbin the United States
or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
There cau be no half-way ground in this
matter. A man is either a free man or a slave;
aud if such a law as you suggest were to pass
the constitutional tesi and a man i* forced to
render "Involuntary servitude" such man Is
unquestionably a slave, and the late civil war
was a woeful waste of human life and human

The Santa Fe overland train from Ra
ton, N. M., arrived at 9:30 p. m., with m«il
and over 1100 passengers. The mail repre
sented the accumulation of seven days
and overflowed the postoffice car 9. It was
the first to arrive here since the road was
tied up through New 51>xico.
Late to-night Deputy Marshals are mak
ing preparations for taking out freight
trains from the Southern Pacific yards
over the Sunset route. The prospective
movement of all throush trains is kept
secret by the Southern Pacific officials,
hut it was learned from Government offi
cers that the first freight train will steal
away from here at 4 a. m. to-morrow.
The remainder of the programme is to
follow the freight with a regular passenger
overland carrying mail and Pullman cars.

can to step the trouble.
WALKED TO LATHROP.
A Three Days' Tramp Which Could
Have Been Avoided.
FBXSXrO a July 9. — The local freient train
arrived from Stockton at 4:30 p. M. to-day
with carloads of merchandise for merchants
here. The American Railway Union men
say the train will not go out to-morrow.
About twenty Visalians arrived on the
local last night. Among them was a well
known resident of Visalia, who went to
San Francisco on an excursion ticket and
aot stranded. He determined last Thurs
day .to get home if he had to walk every
step of the way. Iln took the ferry
to Oakland, knowing that the
walking was good to Visalia.
He concluded to go via Lathrop, hoping
to catch some kind of a train there, and he
did. He reached Lathror> yesterday
about an hour before the local for
Fresno started out, and there met other
Visalians on the way home. He told his
story and was asked why he did not take
a boat to Stockton.
"What," said he, "does a boat run up
thf river to Stockton?"
"Yes. We came up on the boat last
night. The fare is only 25 cents."
"That's tha first time I knew it, and I
have been walking three days when I
could have gone to Stockton for two-bits."
The weary Visaliau took the train ami
was landed in Fresno last evening. His
first name is "Pat," and he is generally
known bs "Old Man Print's son-in-law."

STRIKERS ARE CAST DOWN.
News From the East Rather
THEY WILL EMPLOY NO FORCE.
Nevertheless It Is Apparent That
They Depend L'Don Their Sym
pathizers Doing So.
San Jose, July 9.— The backbone of the
blockade in this city is broken, »nd the
three pas«enger trains that have been
standing h«re since last Thursday will be
started at 6 o'clock to-morrow morning.
Tiiere is scarcely any room for doubt of
this statement. Sheriff Bollinger swore in
100 deputies this afternoon and they have
been ordered to report at the yards at 5
o'clock to-morrow rooming. He will also
be assisted by twenty deputy United
States marshal!>, and companies Band D of
the National Guard will be in easy reach
in case their assistance shall be needed,
which is doubtful.
The deputy sheriffs and deputy marshals
have each been provided with a revolver
and a club, but it is not likely the neces
sity for their use will arise. The strikers
have weakened to-day in the face of the
resolute movements of the authorities, and
they no longer talk of u«ing force to pre
vent the movement of the trains. The
leaders say that if their sympathizers shall
see fit to resort to vtoleDce they may do so,
but they will take no part in the proceed
There will be au immense crowd at the
depot in the morning, and a demonstration
of some kind will undoubtedly take place.
The news from all points had a depressing
effect on the strikers to-day. The action
of President Cleveland in proclaiming
martial law at f^hicago was a great sur
prise, and was closely followed by the
news that the Sheriff was raiding the
town to secure able-bodied deputies.
In the afternoon a citizens' meeting was
held at Germania Hall to discusi the situ
ation. Resolutions were passed favoring
the movement of all trains not carrying
Pullmans. The resolut:ous were as fol
Resolved, That It la the sentiment and our
pose of the people of San Jose that during the
existence of tbe present strike all breach's of
tbe law, disturbance of the ueace. riots and un
lawful Rssftinhlles, ;md also all Interference
wltb the movements of railroad trains with
out Pullmau cars, carrying the United Slates
mall?, cat tying passengers and freight to, from
and through the city of San Jos; , must be jup
pressed and ;>revented by tb« officers of the
law, and that Id Hit ir effort to preserve the
public order and prevent unlawful Interfer
ence wltb the movement of travel and traftic
and malls our. city officials shall have the sup
port and assistance, both moral and puysical,
of the citizens of San Jo se to tbe fullest extent
necessary to accomplish these results.
The resolutions seemed to cap the cli
max of the strikers' forebodings. The
number about the depot decreased and
their determined stand of Sunday was
abandoned for a more pacific attitude.
Many men took off their badges, and the
leaders announced thai they would offer
no resistance to the officers of the law.
To-night everything is very quiet at the
yards. Few strikers are seen, they evi
dently having gone home early to enable
them to be at the depot at 6 o'clock to
ruorrnw morning, when the trains go out.
Master Mechanic Gregg, when seen this
evening, said that everything was in readi
ness for the movement of the trains. Crews
have been secured, the boilers of the lo
comotives filled with water and the tenders
laden with coal. Two of the trains are
bound for San Francisco and the other one
for Pacific Grove.
The strikers have made several attempts
to induce the scabs among the crews to
leave their posts, but without success.
The only hope they now have of prevent
ing the trains pulling out is that their
sympathizers will take up the fight and
The fear is expressed that there may be
trouble before the trains reach San Fran
cisco. It is rumored that the strikers will
send men ahead to intercept trains aud
capture the crews. To prevent such an
act in this county Sheriff Bollinger will
send a force of deputies on each train,
who will be instructed to see that the trains
get out of ihis county without molestation.
John Dart and Frank Welch, who
have caused much trouble In this city
since the strike began, were arrested to
day. Dart threw a truck across a track

D»nvkb, July 9.— A supposed attempt
to extort money from D. 11. Moffatt,
president of the First National Bank, or to

entered tbe bank and asked for Mr.
The watchman asked them their busi

they were informed that they could not
see the bank president unless they made
known their business.
They went away, but returned twice,
with the same result. Upon their third
call tbe police were communicated with
and an officer was sent to the bank.
Late ibis afternoon the two strangers
were seen outside the bank, arrested and
& charge of vagrancy entered against

them was found to have eight sticks of dy

are out of funds, and only wished to ask

The Britannia Once More Defeats
Huntress Quay, Firth of Clyde, July
9. — The Vigilant in to-day's racing in the
Royal Clyde Yacht Club regatta spread a
new mainsail. It was slightly altered in
its trim. At the start the Vigilant crossed
the line two seconds ahead of the Britan
nia. At tne Cloche Lighthouse the Vigi
lant was two lengths ahead and gaining.
The Vigilant's topsail did her but little
good aud it was lowered. When under
Weymss the yachts stood a long distance
out on the port track, the Vigilant going
further out than the Britannia. Near
bkelmorlie, the first mark, the two yachts
had been for some time traveling in close
As the Vigilant lost the breeze first the
Britannia hauled her in, but the Vigilant
in ligbtair soon pulled out clear from the
Britannia's lee untilsbe was eo>ne lengths
ahead at Skelmorlie mark. Time was:
Vigilant, 12:14:18: Britannia, 12:15:21.
At Innelan, near Ascome, the Vigilant
was becalmed and the Britannia roiled
past ber. Bounding Ascog mark the time
was: Britannia 1:13:03, Vigilant 1:17:01.
At Cloche Point the Britannia was lead
ing the Vifti'ant 3 minutes and 5 seconds.
Off Gourock the Vigilant carried faint air
aud reached clean Dast the Britannia's
weather. The Britannia was leading when
nearing Kilcreggan boat by two minutes,
and she easily won. .
Passing Gourock the Vigilant led by a
length. The winds were light and varia
ble on the way to Kllcraggan, calling for
the best seamanship of the yachtsmen.
The yachts from this point had a weari
some drift home. The Britannia won,
crossing the line at 5:34:45 and the Vigi
lant at 5:44:19. With time allowance the
Britannia won by 11 minutes 4 seconns.
The people here cheered the yachts as
they came id, but the universal opluion is
that to-day's contest was no test of the
relative merits of the boats and that the
question of superiority is not yet decided.
The Vigilant and the Britannia will have
another chance to-morrow, meeting in the
race for the Clyde Corinthian cup, valued
at £60, over (he same course.

were prominent members of 'he Olympic
Club, left this city in a slood for An
tioch, where they intended to re
main a week shooting and fishing.
When about eight miles from Antioeh and
sailing alone briskly with a strung tide
and wind favoring the craft, a squall
struck the sail and the boom, in its sudden
change, hit young Gerring on the
head, the force of which knocked him
overboard. The sloop was going at full
spped and Fred Carter, a well-known
amateur boxer, shouted to Gerring to Keep
cool and hold his head above water. The
sloop was turned too, but before tne occu
pants nt it got within a few yards of the
unfortunate young man he sank
within full view of his companions
and was never seen again. His parents,
who live in Chicago, were notified by tele
graph of the unhappy ending of what
was intended to be a pleasant
outing, and tl'ev replied by station
that a reward of SSO be offered for the re
covery of the body. Several parties of fish
ermen have beeti searching for the
drowned man, but up to last evening noth
ing has been heard of the poor fellow.
Gerring arrived lv this city from Chi
cago about five years ago, during which
time he has been in the employ of Mr.
.Leipuitz, the well-known druggist, who
was probably better known as the "snake
doctor." His many friends are very
anxious concerning the recovery of his

The Acme and Olympic Clubs are now
on the most friendly terms, and it is ex
pected that there will be a large number
of Acme Club representatives entered for
the next boxing tournament.
Frank Allen, the pugilist who joined the
courageous men that were employed re
cently to defend railroad property against
the strikers, is now training for bis fight
against Jim Barron at Blankeo's
six - mile bouse. His opponent is
housed at Barney Farley's emporium
of sport near the Industrial school, and
according to the latest reports be is of the
opinion that pig's head and cabbage is fur
better food than game chickens or squabs
which Allen is said to be feeding on.
Wittmer the wrestler is expected to ar
rive from the East next month, and, in an
ticipation of a bard contest, Dan McLeod
will keep himself in training at Milbrae.

good success, having returned with a nic»
basket of fish.
The secretary of the Olympic Club,
Billy Kennedy, has returned from iEtna
Spring*, with a very swell dose of poison
oak. His eyes are in mourning, and Mr.
Kennedy i« very much afraid that lie will
be confined to his home for some time to
come. Professor Miehling had intended
leaving to-day for the sDrines, but when
he took a peep at Kennedy's "knobby"
face he concluded that he would take an
opposite direction and drive to Santa Cruz.
Strange to say Professor Al Lean will
leave for the same place next week, and a
lujr-of-war is consequently inevitable.
On the 24th inst., Brown of the Acme
Club and F^ynn, an unattached member,
will meet iuTiie Acme Club's building and
contest six rounds for a trophy. The box
ers must weigh in at 155 pounds. Preced
