Sacramento, July 10.— When the news >
rtaebed this city this afternoon that tbe ;
troops. of the United States army were on
the way to clear the railroad yards and
. mo Ve the Southern Pacific trains there was
commenced an era of excitement which
has never had its parallel in Sacramento
history before. The spectacle of men. ex
cited bat determined, hurrying through
the public streets with several Winches
ters on their shoulders and their Dockets
bulging with pistols and cartridges is of
rare occurrence, and Sacramentans are lib
eral in their appreciation of the fact. Men
and women and children gathered along
every thoroughfare and talked and conjec
tured en tbe numerous possibilities that
: the soldiers and strikers would clash and
that the blood of both be shed in the ter
, rttory where railroad property is located.
Crowds hurried down to the vicinity of the "■
headquarters of the Airier. can Railway
Union and gazed in open-moutbed wonder I
at hundreds of men thickly gathered and ;
desperate of aspect.
The scene at Knox's headquarters and
at the depot buildings, a snort distance be
low, gave splendid token of the arrival of
a climax in Sacramento's part in tne great
national railroad strike. There could be
no mistaking the fact that the beginning j
o-f the end was swiftly approaching. The j
strikers took on a more serious demeanor, !
aid talked in guarded tones about tbe .
brilliant nroppeets lor trouble. The c.ti- j
zen-s of the town paled perceptibly at the !
discouraging prospects for peace and cr- j
der. Militiamen agreed throughout their :
. camp that the time for action was not far j
. off. and so they played no more cards on ■
drumhead 1 ? nor washed tneir clothing ie a
tin pail. No more of that for a few hours.
The fearless ones were only jubilant over j
tbe prospects of a chance to redeem their j
lost honor, and show themselves of stuff !
better than that of which the public think |
them made. There were as many more '
• who w-ere not so jubilant. These were the '
youDg men whose parents and friends,
were worrying at their homes for their
blue-bloused darlings. But then this was
i case where duty was to do, and every j
man of them would be ready when the I
bugle sounded the advance.
It would have unpleasantly thrilled the
. mos*. unconcerned spectator to have seen j
tne preparations for what striker and
soldier and citizen believed, with surpri?- j
' ing unanimity, was to be a short era of j
carriage in tbe assertion of the authority j
of the great Government against the
. flesp-rate protest of thousands strong in a
-%^^^Z^lL^ '"'^^ «*^ lj^»l—^
"truggle for their bread and their very
life and for those of more thousands de
:' pendent upon them.
There was a remarkable show of desper
. ate purpose. There was no boasting
among those men down at the head
quarters of the leader, Knox. Men
of their stamp and in their position are
not greatly giveD to loud-mouthed ex
, . pr.e9sio.QS of overcouhdence. So deter
:■: mined and desperate and full of fieht
.-"'•for the great principle they had charged
themselves to defend were they that
fur from empty boastiug they were
sufficiently reserved and cautious to
keep every detail of their plan of
operations from eager listeners. No one
. could hear their purpose. One could see
it, though, in the huriy of armed men, the
massing of crowds about the yards and
• t&e general startling indications of develop
ments that would be numerous and full
of danger, backs of ammunition were
carted quickly to the arsenal of the
: striking trainmen, down near the depot.
Rifle?, shotguns, pistols, knives—every
thing in the weapon line that would count
. for. success in a desperate conflict were
packed to the arsenal through the prin
..cfpftl streets and through back alleys.
.:"\y.hafever thoroughfare afforded the
easiest and quickest route to Kuox's
headquarters was taken advantage of.
The time had arrived when strikers left
all care for secrecy aside In the matter of
carrying firearms through the city.
Measengers were immediately dispatched
The Morning Call.
' to every quarter of the town with tbe news
of the approach of the regular troops.
Couriers went hurrying In every direction
; with startling reports, and within half an
; hour from the time the first news was re
: ceived there were 3000 striking railroad
employes in thick throngs all about the
Southern Pacific property. They came
from everywhere and gathered with sur
prising haste and without disturbance.
Some trotted along with shotguns, others
with Winchesters, and not one of the
hurrying multitude but had a revolver
and tbe cartridges that go with it in pock
ets bulging conspicuously. A great meet
ing was called at once. Thousands of un
shaven, eoatlessand rough-handsd fellow* !
surged about Knox's headquarters. They j
went in by large squad?, for tbe ball could j
j not hold one-hundredth of the mass. Knox j
1 ana other chiefs were there, and from
• these the rank and file of the labor
; ing army heard tbe news and re
'M'^^X
I ceived instructions as to what should
!be done about it. The men came
| out of the well-guarded assembly-room
; with countenances hopeful but fearfully
defiant. Yells and cheers shouted above
the babble of voices in the room at inter
, vals, and were strong to stir up an increase
i of enthusiasm among those who thronged
[ about tbe entrance and along the streets
j and sidewalks. Scores of strikers, with
' guns on their shoulders, started off and
crossed the river, and generally located
themselves In localities sufficiently far
distant and secluded to remove any chances
of interference. There they set up targets
i and tried their skill at rifle-tiring. Shots
were dangerously numerous along the river
sides, and targets were bit with a fre
quency that told of skill and long ac
: quaintance with the use of firearms.
i These were the men who are believed to
i have been selected to do snapshooting.
They practiced foi hours, and all tbe
while citizens talked of their firmness of
purpose and their certain participation in
hostilities quite as certain. Work like

that meant business, they said, and no one
ventured any dissenting voice.
When the strikers gathered about the
streets in the vicinity of the railroad yards
there was great consternation among the
! Chinese who reside in this vicinity. They
crowded the sidewalks in front of their
stores and dwelling-places, and viewedthe
| spectacle with a wholesome fear. Some of
the strikers volunteered them the infor
mation that fighting was soon to Begin, and
! that tbey had better close shop and lie
j low until tranquillity prevailed again. The
Chinese needed no more. In a moment
there was a banging of doors and a ciap
j pin? ot window-shutters, until one would
nave thought the sounds were the rattles
of mußketry. The strikers thought it
! quite s juke, but the Chinese were not of
• that mind, and they are lying low with
j admirable persistence.
Mayor bteinnian and Marshal Baldwin
were not obi ivious of the dangerous aspect
i of affairs. "There Is nothing tame about
this," said the Mayor. "By heaven, but
things look serious." And bo they do;
and every one in Sacramento is beginniug
to think so. Early this afternoon there
was a copy of President Cleveland's
proclamation in circular form distributed
about town and particularly in the local
ity where strikers congregate. The circu
lar was addressed tocitlz*ns of Sacramento,
in this fashion :
Proclamation to the citizens of Saciaraento
aud all others:
Whereas, The President of the United
States has issued a proclamation addressed to
SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY 11, 1894.
tbe people of California and other WesteiW
Stales, calling attention to the f;ict that unlaw
ful obstructions, combinations and assemblages
render it impracticable to enforce by the or
dinary course of judicial proceedings the laws
of the United States at certain places, and con
cluding as follows:
"Now. therefore, I, Grover Cleveland, Presi
dent of tbe United States, do hereby command
all persons engaged in or in any way connected
with such unlawful ODslructlons, combinations
or assemblages to disperse and retire peaceably
to their respective abodes on or before 4 o'clocK
of the alteruoou of me lOili of July"; and
Whereas, Under the laws of the United
States said proclamation has the legal effect of
placing tnis State and city and other places in a
state of insurrection and rebellion, thereby ren
dering all persons still resisting and opposing
Hie authority of tbe United States and the laws
thereof liable to additional and severe punish
ment for such resistance and opposition.
Now, therefore, we, B. U. Steiuman, Mayor
of the city of Sacramento, and Barry Baldwin,
United States Marshal lor tbe Northern Dis
JUDGE ERSKINE M. ROSS.
trlct of California, do call upon all citizens and
residents of tills city and others to obey the
proclamation of the President and to refrain
from all unlawful combinations and assem
blages, and to disperse and retire to their
respective abodes on or before 4 o'clock, July
10, 1894. B. U. Steixman.
Mayor of the city of Sacramento. j
Barry Baldwin,
United States Marshal.
Dated Sacramento, Cat., July 10, 1894.
In a very short time after the
proclamation was on the streets every
one of the strikers had read it
and laughed at it aud tore it to pieces.
Little they cared what Mayor Steinman or
Barry Baldwin desired. They stood about
in fearless defiance of the order, and when
4 o'clock came their attitude was of the
"what are you eoing to do aDout it" sort.
The men were told to disperse by their
I leaders, but they failed to obey. This
I could not have been disobedience in so ex
■ cellent and superbly managed an organiza
tion as that of the strikers. They doubtless
I knew what they were to do and their
I leaders knew even better what they
would do. There Is everything in the
way orders are intended to bo Interpreted.
All the afternoon and all night too
those strikers maintained their positions
on the streets and on the railroad prop
erty, and all this time Mayor Steinman
wondered, and Barry Baldwin wondered
in company with Steinman. Baldwin
called a conference of military chiefs at
the Golden Engle Hotel. General Dickin
son of the Second Brigade and General
Sheehan of the Fourth Brigade glittered
in the Marshal's inner office. It was de
cided that the situation is serious and that
lightning is beginning to loosen up to
strike with extraordinary violence. Baldwin
directed tbat immediately upon the ar
rival of the regular troops General Shee
ban should report to Colonel Graham of
the Filth United States Artillery and
place his entire militia force located here
under orders from the commanding officer
of the troops of the regular service.
Thus far there hus been no other plan
of operations decided upon. Unless these
orders are countermanded and the militia
ordered out sooner, the citizen soldiers
will not take any active part in the r>ro
ceedings until the regulars begin what will
probably be transactions of rich interest
with the strikers' contingent.
The reports which startle most now are
those concerning the departure of about
500 strikers down both sides of the Sac
ramento River with Winchester rifles and
plenty of ammunition. It was also reported
that men have been sent down the river
almost to Courtland, a place twenty-three
miles from here. They have instructions
to uo some sharpshootine and make things
generally interesting for Colonel Graham's
command.
Marsha] Baldwin received news that
when tbe steamer Alameda with Fed
eral troops on board passed a short dis
tance above Benicia tbe companies were
transferred to two small vessels, and in
these the journey to this city is being
made. The information continues to tbe
effect that there i? a troop of cavalry on
each side of the river proceeding north
just as rapidly as the troop transports and
instructed to prevent any of the proposed
sharpsbooting. Gatling guns, it is under
stood, accompany these troops of cavalry,
and in tbe event of a disturbance tbey
will be effectively used in thinning ont the
biggest crowd of sharpshooters that can
gather on tbe river bank. The troops are
expected to arrive bere at about 5 o'clock
to-morrow morning.
Citizens here are greatly concerned over
the extreme probability that the city will
be placed under martial law immediately
upon the arrival of the Federal troops. In
the event of a declaration of supreme
military control, all business will very
probably be ordered suspended and all
manner of communication prohibited. The
commanding officer may order every store
in town closed and generally cause a com
plete stagnation or all affairs until tho
supremacy of the National Government is
acknowledged by the belligerents. Any
violation of military regulations will con
stitute rebellion or insurrection against tbe
Government. The prospect is a gloomy
one for tbe business men of the city, but
these things are inevitable when trouble of
this character reaches so serious a stage,
and the business men are about resigned to
their misfortune.
Superintendent Fillniore was visited this
morning at his beadquarters in tbe Golden
Eagle Hotel by a large number of locomo
tive engineers who offered their services
to the Southern Pacific Company when
ever called UDon. They had never gone
out on a strike, as their order had no
grievance and is not sftiliated with the
American Kailway Union. Superin
tendent Fillmore received dispatches to
day to the effect that an eastbound Pull
man train left Los Angeles this morning
one hour late. A northbound train left
the same place under protection of Uuited
States troops and Deputy United States
Marshals.
"An impression has gone forth," said
Mr. Fillniore, "to the effect that the South
ern Pacific Company discharged three men
for refusing to operate a Pullman train oa
tbe Oakland mole about a week ago. I
wish to say that we have not discharged a
man. The men resigned voluntarily."
A report, generally supposed to have a
"cry reliable so arc-, was circulated this
afternoon that Company l>, Sixth In
fantry, of Stockton had deserted tbe Na
tional Guard ranke. It is true that two
members of that company escaped from
camp and joined the striking trainmen,
but it cannot be positively stated that the
entire company intended doing so. The
fact is, however, that Company B has not
been overtrusted since this railroad trouble
began, and invariably throughout camp
to-night the opinion is general that the
Stockton company did propose to quit the
job, notwithstanding all the denials of the
members that such a thing was intended.
At headquarters other than the Sixth In
fantry it is considered that the charges
against Company B nave more truth than
error in them.
Tbe military authorities are trying to
locate the source of the report that the
strikers have secured a Cold piece which
belonged to the Second Infantry, and is
supposed to have been taken down tbe
river to be used in the action with the
regulars.
The mediation committee of the Ameri
can Kailway Union, of which H. A. Knox,
Thomas (Jompton and James Mullln are
members, to-day sent the following tele
gram to A. N. T owne of the Southern
Pacific Company, which is really the first
open and definite statement of the union's
position, which lias been issued from head
quarters here:
We. the mediation committee ol the Ameri
can Kailway Uuton. desire to express to the
public our position in this trouble, and wish it
dlstiuctly understood that, notwithstanding
all press reports to the contrary, we, the mem
bers of the American Railway Union, are now
ready and willing, and have so notified the
officials ol ihe Southern Pacific Company, to
moye, man and safely see to their destination
all mall, passenger and freight trains. Our
only objection and the sole cause of our present
position Is the affinity of the Southern Pacific
Company to the soulless Pullman corporation.
The Southern Pacific Company have only to
mcci aud agree to place all members of the
American Hallway Union and each and every
one of Its employes who went out in support ot
the American Railway Union In their respec
tive positions and state that, any action of
theirs during the present trouble sliall not
be charged against them, and that no Pullman
cars shall be attached to any train until such
time as Marquis Pullman condescends to come
down from his perch and treat nis employes in
just manner.
We again repeat that we are ready, willing
und able with experienced men to have every
wheel on the Southern Pacific system moving
within three hours after the amicable settle
ment of this matter.
aealn affirm and say that so loDg as there
l« aDy vitality In the American Railway Union
Marquis Pullman's cars shall not be considered
part of a mall train.
There was great activity out at the mili
tary camp on the Capitol grounds to-night,
and officers and men were earnestly dis
cusslog the seriousness of the present sit
uatioD. Orders are out for immediate prep
aration of rations for a day or two, and de
tachments from the various companies are
busy making coffee in immense boiler?.
This will be distributed to the men in the
morning, and will be carried in canteens
in the event of the militia being ordered to
co-operate with the regular troops. An
immense amount of corned-beef and hard
tack has been purchased, and squads of
men are busy preparing this for distrlbu
tion. It has been considered very prob
able tbat tbe militia will be ordered out
again to-morrow, and tbe entire night will
bo spent in preparing them for any contin
gency.
An effort is being made to impress Chair
man Knox and the other leaders with the
fact tbat tbe men of the hospital corps are
entitled to consideration as non-com
batants, and should be afforded every
facility for the proper care of tbe wounded
in case of a cotiict.
Every man of the corps wears a white
brassard on his arm. with the red cross in
the center. It is desired by Major Galwey,
surgeon or the First Infantry, that Chair
man Knox issue some sort of circular in
forming tho men of the A. R. U. that the
work of the hospital corps would not be
confined to wounded soldiers, but would
be given to the strikers as well, and re
quiring that all persons refrain from
molesting the men of the corps. These
militiamen are not provided with weapons,
end would be is no position to do any
fighting.
UP THE RIVER.
The Steamer Alameda Loaded With
Soldiers and Marines.
Vallejo, July 10. — It has been an ex
citing day at the Mare Island Navy-yard.
All day long companies of bluejackets,
fully armed and equipped for duty, have
•^"^L— —^-T~ -' '^^^^^e^^S^Mj^BMsk^^^^^^ 3^^^^^^^^^^^^
been on, the march and deploying in all
manner (fof positions. Since Monday
morning early the men on the various
ships have been under arms at the bar
racks, three companies selected, under
the command of Major P. C. Pope
of the United States Marine Corps. Word
has been received by Captain Bowison,
the commandant of tbe yard, to get all bis
available men ready to move, excepting
a reserve of fifty men for the magazines,
without delay. Rations were issued in
sufficient quantities to last for several
days, and thousands of rounds of ammu
nition were broken out and distributed
to the various commands. The sailors
were each provided with blankets and a
complete kit of clothes and eating utensils.
It was expected ail day Monday that
word would be received at the command
ant's office for the men to be ordered to
co-operate with General Kuger's forces, it
having been represented that his com
mand at the Presidio was so depleted that
it would be necessary for him to have
assistance from the navy-yard. The moni
tor Monterey had steam up all day and
expected to receive orders at any moment
to go either to Oakland or to San Fran
cisco with not only her men, but compa
nies from the marine barracks, the Inde
pendence, the Marion and the Thetis. In

all, some 350 or 400 men were under arms
all during the day and until late at
nieht. Extra hospital itoreg were re
quired for and soon delivered on board the
monitor. A large lot of supplies were
taken down to the freight-shed to be
shipped along with the men, as Govern
ment troops do not travel, like the .Na
tional Guard, without taking a supply of
provisions along with them. Among the
stores were a lot of spare guns, gear and
equipage.
The Charleston arrived at the yard
about 4 o'clock, and her arrival added to
the Interest of the i!ny. Word was sent to
her commanding officer to have his meu
ready to march onboard the Independence
and the Monterey.
Late on Monday word was received that
they would not be required until 4 o'clock
this afternoon. At that time, if no other
orders were received from the Secretary
of the Navy or General linger, they
would leave on whatever steamer might
call for them. All settled down quietly
for the night, bat at a little after 12 o'clock
the guards were startled by the announce
ment that two suspicious characters had
beeo arrested at the magazine grounds,
they having landed in a shore boat and
built a fire to cook, some supper at that
hour of the night. The men were marched
up to the marine barracks under a guard
and locked up in a cell for the remainder
of the night. This morning, by order
of the commandant, they were brought
under guard before Commander McCalla
and closely interrogated as to what they
were doing on the island at that hour of
the night. They explained that they had
been out on the river, and, the wind blow
ing fresh, they had made a landing not
knowing they were on a Government reser
vation. The captain, being convinced of
their Innocence and warning them in the
future to keep away from the island at
night, allowed them to go. They were
taksn to the lower end of the island on
one of the yard tugs and put in their boats.
It is believed by many that the men had
more or less to do with the present trou
bles, as they were blight looking and
smart. Extra precautions are now taken
to see that no other persons are allowed
on the yard, either day or night.
To-day sailors have been on the march
about the island drilling and firing guns.
Early iv the morning word was received
by the commandant that the steamer
Alameda was going up to the yard with
the intention of receiving the three com
panies of marines, and for them to report
to Colonel Graham, United States Army.
As soon as this was known, the marines
were ordered to again make preparations
for their departure. About 3 o'clock the
excitement on the yard' and at Vallejo was
intense when it was noised about that
ARCADE STATION OF THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC.
black smoke was seen down the bay and
that a large sidewheel, double-ender
-teamer had been sighted. Soon the hill
>ops were lined with people, and as the
steamer swung around the point every
small boat was brought into requisition
and put off for the navy yard. Word was
passed along to allow no one to land on
the yard.
The marines from the barracks left
their quarters and came marching steadily
down to the water front, under the com
mand of Major P. C. Pope and the various
officers wfco were to lead the companies.
The Bteamer came on up the river, and it
was seen that she was loaded with troops.
She passed up by the island, swung around
and came back and veered in alongside of
the wharf just below the great stone dry
dock where Commandant Howison, Com
mander WcCalla and a large number of
naval officers were congregated. As soon
as a gangplank was thrown out Colonel
Graham steDped ashore and reported to
Commandant Howison, who, after ex
changing a few words, gave orders for the
companies of marines to be marched
aboard. They numbered some 135 men.
The ferry-boat, which proved to b« the
Alameda, was a perfect arsenal. Two
Gatling guns were half hidden in the bow
of the boat by bales of hay. There were
found to be some 500 already on board,
consisting of cavalry, battery and artillery
men. Great piles of provisions were stored
in the lower deck. In one portion of tbe
boat was ammunition of all kinds, with
sentries pacing about it. In other parts
were horses, ambulance and other wagons.
Tbe men all had a determined look on
their faces, and General Graham remarked
that he should be firm with tbe strikers,
and that no chances would be taken while
on the way up the river. Four river pilots
were en board. It was not known, or at
least tbe news would not be imparted,
how far up the river the men would be
taken.
The steamer was delayed until twenty
minutes past 4 o'clock, on account of tak
ing water on board. While she was wait
ing Captain Howison received a telegram
from the Secretary of tne Navy, which
was intently read by the two commanders.
All of tbe bluejackets were left at the
navy-yard to be in readiness for another
call, which is expected at the yard. As
the steamer was waiting at the wharf
sharp volleys of musketry and Galling
guns were frequently heard from the
rifles of the sailors over the bill.
At 4:25 the^ Alameda cast off from the
yard and steamed down the river and
passed on up toward Benicia. As soon as
sbe rounded the straits, leading toward'
benicia. General Grabam was to hold

The steamer landed at the Benicia arsenal
wharf and took on board a company of
fifty infantry soldiers. Captain C. C.
O'ConneM commanding. They also took
on board four Gatllng guns and 100,000
round 9of riflo ammunition.
It is anticipated that the Alameda will
proceed up the river as far as Colllnsville
and will be there met by two river steam
ers. The entire troops will be transferred
to the boats. They will then proceed on
up to Sacramento.
At 11 o'clock to-night all is quiet at the
navy-yard. There are 358 sailors ready
for service under command of Lieutenant-
Commander J. H. Reader, executive offi
cer of the Charleston.

destination is Sacramento. Sha brought
the troops from the Presidio and the
marines from Mare Island. The Alameda

ble that her load will be transferred to
some other steamer at or near Rio Vis?a.
Antioch, July 10.--The Alameda passed
the junction of the San Joaquin and Sacra
mento rivers about five miles west of An
tioch at 7:45 o'clock.
Rio Vista, July 10.— The Alameda ar
rived here at 9:25 and transferred to trie

Another boat is expected soon. There are
no accommodations whatever on the Acme,
as she is used only for carrying wheat.
The Acme left at 10:30. Sho travels
about seven miles an hour. She took
about a third of the soldiers. The balance
and the cavalry stayed on the Alamedn,
which left at 10:35, following the Acmo.
It could not be learned wnere the cavalry
would get off the boat, but some say the
Alarneda draws too much water to make
the trip to Sacramento. No other boat ar
rived.
Several soldiers were interviewed, and
they said their sympathies to a man were
with the strikers.
