Theio has been a decided Impiovemcnt in
the condition ol nlTaiis in Chicago diirlni ; the
day , and pcojilo's apiirehenslon of future
tioublcs Is Kiadually bclnt ; lessened , The
cause of this feeling is due. moro than any
thing else , to the determination and activity
which has been displayed by the city author
ities since Tuesday's massacre by thoun-
nrehlsts. The piompt action of Uiecoionci's
jury , In holding Iho socialist Kang for mur
der , has also had a most salutary elfect , and
their adlieients have been keeping very
quiet. Any plotlln they may bo engaged
in , Is done In secret. In alt the freight depots -
pots lylni ; south of llaulson street , an elToit
was miido to lesnme ojiorations to-day. It
was not a vciy successful one , not on account
of Intel feicnco on the jiait ot strlkcis , for
very few of them weio to bo found in the
.vicinity , but because of the Inability
of t' o companies to obtain men
to take the jilaccs of the
old hands. The tow stilkeis who were found
In the vicinity wore very quiet. They
seemed dlsphited and icfused to talk about
the situation or their Intentions. When the
icpoitor asked them about their meetings to
day and their opinion ot the situation they
replied by asking Him if ho wished to join
tholr oiganl/atlou , and when Informed that
ho din not belong to their calling they said
that what they did 01 were going to do or
what they thought was of no In
tel est to anyone outside of their ovv n associa
tion. The whole appcaianco of things in
that vicinity looked very much as If the back
bone of the stilko was bioken , and as If most
of the bojs would bo glad to letimito their
places so iccoiitly vacated by them it they
could only do so without appealing to do
violence to their feelings of sell icspcct and
The socialists have really helped the capi
talists , anil damaged the cause olmaiiy vvoik-
ingmeii who have ju t gilovauces. Kvciy-
thing was e\tiemoly quiet aiound the may-
oi'.s olllce , it being in marked contrast
with the Dtistlo of the jiiccceding day.
The niayoi was late in airiviiig. having been
extiemely fatigued by the jiiessuio of tlio
excitement under which he has labored since
the tumbles bewail. As on tlio day jucvlous
he was constantly visited by piomlncnt citi
zens , w ho nave odv Ice , but there was nothing
amounting to a demonstration dining tlio en
tire day.
When Interviewed by a reporter this aftci-
noon the maor said ho had been talking
strike until ho was sick of it. Ho had spent
two hours this moinlng In ildlng about tlio
lumbci dlstiicts and other places where thcio
have been disturbances , and Ids pioclamation
seemed to Mmvo boon obeyed. Thcio were
no cio.vds , and eveiythliig was quiet ,
llo thinks that the shooting Tuesday night
has led the strikers to sco that it is useless tor
them to act as they have been doing. In fact
the backbone of the btilkc is biokcn. The
police aio aloit and leatty for r.ny emergency ,
and In a slioit time the fiouhlo will bo over.
In view ot the declaration ot the state's at
torney in effect that ho has discoveied and Is
in possession of ample evidence Implicating

Hie situation has assumed a sciious aspect

eral emphatic opinion among leading mciu-
bcisot the bar that tholr ciiiues aio well de-
llncd , and , under the mo tclrcumssect Intei-
pretation ot the law , are punishable
by death. With such opinions it
is moially ceitaln thnt the hanging of tlio
tiio of exponents of Nihilism Is a matter of
the near tutiire. The question of their doom
Is agitating the Iciral minds of the bar , and
methods pieserlbetl tor their punishment me
mimcious. It was lecommended bv some
that at thooidoi ot a Judge , a special mand
jmy should bo impanelled and the ca a pro

llio Situation In Chicago.
CIHCAOO , May 0. [ Special Telegram. |
There has been no nppaient Impiovcment in
the Industrial situation within the past twcn
ty-four houis. The thousands of stiiKers In
the southwestern section of thu city still
persist in dcfylm : the law. There were three
outbioaks yesterday at the coiner of Eigh
teenth street and Center avenue , hi which
the jiollco onicera weio subjected to a heavy
llio of bullets and stones , fiom an ambus
cade , The shooting was ictuincd , but with
no elTcct save that of scattciing the iloters.
Tliofiltfatlon in the lumber dlsti lets this
moinlng was much the same as it 1ms been
fclnco the bojinnln of the week. There
ate enough of wasowoikers willing to leturn
to woik to btait up in full ojioratlon every
Inlll , factory and yard In the district , but
ovvlnctotho hostile incendiary attitude of
the aniuchUts nnd socialists , the peaceably
Inclined aio afraid to resume operations.
J'ropiictors aud uiauufactuiers nio as much
afraid as tlio employes , nnd no attempt will
bo mada to start up until the excitement sub
sides and im > j > orty and life can bo protected.
Fully three-fourths of the entire force went
Into the McCormlck factory this morning
which Is a larecr number of men than have
been at work there since Monday. Sergeant
Knrlght and thirty-five police were on nuard
at the gates. No crowd ot rioters were col
lected. Kdward ( } lss6w , a Bohemian , was
caught throwing stones nt the police and ar
was posted In hand bills throughout the dls-
diet In English and German. Its warning
seemed to have the desired effect , for no
ciowds were congregating along the black
road or anyvv hero else , excepting that trou
blesome sjot ) at Eighteenth street nnd Center
avenue. The crowd of nihilists there this
morning was much smaller and quieter tliau
Armour's glue factory at Thirty-fifth street
and the river was this morning at a stand
still with ten policemen on hand to protect
the pioperty trom the ilot"rs.
Last night was one of comparative quiet
hi the dlsoiderly districts. The socialistic
1'oles and llohemtans In the vicinity of
Eighteenth sticct aud Center avenue con
tinued theli liotons conduct until very late ,
and the police weio kept liom firing Into the
crowds by the jiresenco of women nnd chll-
dicn , although the htttei wcie as dlsoiderly
as the men. Women In a dellcato condition
were caught hurlUK ! stones , and infused to
move on when oidcicd to do so by tlio police.
The women also acted as sjiles for the men
by paj Ing frequent visits to the police sta
tions at Twelfth street and lliuman street.
After nl ht tall the Hohemlans adopted the
tactlc-s of jicltlng the jiollco from the windows
dews oC their dwellings , llundieds of
shots were ftred by the police ,
but generally they fned high.

Is still very bad. The most encouraging
tcilturo Is the attitude of the switchmen , who
resolved not to Intcrfcio In the strike of tlio
freight handlcis. The jirojierty of the roads
involved in the present tiiimoil Is gmudcd
byolllceis. Thus far no serious tumble has
oeouircd , the strlkeis contenting themselves
with lighting their emplojers with strategy
known only to hue diplomatist ? .

The chair stated that the senate had already

merce bill was thciefore laid before the sen

piovidlng that tlto piovision oC thu bill
against receiving moiu tor shorter timn for
longer haul should 'not be constuied as au-
thoti/lnc aiiyrallioad company to charge
as much for snorter as for longer hauls. ' Ho
did this , ho said , to picvcut the companies
iroiu holding that thu bill gave them an Im
plied authority to charge as much lor n haul
of 100 miles as for a haul of 1,000 miles.
Mr. J n trails said th.it the Ion ; : and short
haul clause , as now amended , was like n
crowbar thrust Into the vvoiks of a watch.
Mr. Cnnulcn's amendment , Mr. Ingalls bo-
lleved , was In such absolute hostility to the
Interests of the west that if the bill became
law which ho ( Inpills ) thought doubtful
there would nnvcr bo a bushel of grain nor a
pound of beef or poik brought cast from
Iowa , Kansas or Ncbi.isku. Mr. In-
palls said that the senator from
West Virginia , Mr. Camdon. lived on
the line of raihoad that was directly Inter ,
estcd In the short haul clause , and those voting -
ing with him wcie also Interested In It. The
direct olfeut ot the Camdcn amendment
would ba to make producers ot the west pay
short haul rates on every pound of freight
brought to the seaboard. The senator liom
West Virginia , Mi. Camdcn , was too astute
not to know that tact His design was to
compel the men who raised the ceieals of the
west pay local rates all the way to the sea
Mr. Hoar said he could not votefortho Ions
and short haul clause as amended by Mi.
Camden. It would Btiiko a fatal blow at our
foielgn commcicc.
Mr. Allison said that under the provisions
of the bill , as they now Blood , It would bo
practically Impossible Idr tlio people ot Iowa
to get their ceieals to market llo thought
the tntioductlon ot lout ; ami short haul ques
tion Into the bill was a mistake. In states
that wcic said to have laws on that subject ,
lallroads paid no attention to the laws. Not ,
only would the people of Iowa , under this
iron clad provision , bo unable to send their
produce to fie east , but they could not got
troin the past anthracite coal of which they
used n eoiisjdeiablo qinntlty. Jlr. Allison
would prefer a bill den tine u commissionbut
without this Ions and shott haul
clause , at least for a year or two ,
until time , and experience in the vvoiklng
of the commission should show what was
best to bo done with that . .complicated ques
tion. The iiroposed'nnangement would , ho
feared , bo aery serious embanassinent to
the commerce of tlio country with Its many
ramifications. The gcnorafprovisions of the
bill , however , met Mr. Allison's heaity ap-
pioval , andhcoxpicssed the hope that the
scimto would adhere to them.
Mr. Cullom said in his opinion tlio enforce
ment ot the bill , as now amended , -would ic-
qulro that Hie ncaicr a person lived to the
scaboaid , the cheaper he would "et his tians-
poitation , and this rule , if rlcidlv enforced ,

The majority of the house judiciary com

constitution submits but a formal lepoit rec-
ommeudingjhat the proposition llo upon the
table. The minority report , which Is signed
by Messrs. E. IJ. Taylor , Hciiburn , Caswell
and llanncy , commcnla upon this fact , but
says tlio Impoitanco of tlio question of
woman suffrage is foiclnp full discussion
everywhere , and the silence of the commlttco
will nave no tendency to withdraw It from
public attention. In a government by tlio
people tlio ballot 1 ? at once the badeo of so v-
erelcntv and th6 means of cxoicislng power.
Women mo people , and , wo submit , thatthoy
are neither morally nor Intelligently incapa
ble , mid that no necessity for their rtlsfran-
chiscmont can bo suggested. On the con
trary , wo bcllcvo they are entitled to immedi
ate and absolute enfranchisement ; tlrst.be-
cause their own peed demands It , Give
woman the ballot nnd she will have addi
tional moans nnd Inducements for broader
nnd bettor education , including knowledge
of affairs , which she will not fall to avail her
self of to the utteimost , and which she
will add to her mean * of protection for her
person and estate. Thohlstoiy of women Is
for the most part a history of vv roug and out
rage. Created the equal companion of man ,
she early became his slave , nnd still Is In
many parts of the woild. Man has not been
consciously unjust to woman In the past , nor
Is ho now , out no believes she is In her tiun
sphere , not icall/lnc ; that ho lias fixed her
splieie , and not God , as lie Imagines. Yet as
man advances , woman Is elevated , and her
elevation In tin n advances him. No llbeity
ever given her has been lost or abused or 10-
gretted. Whcro most has been given her , she
has become best. Liberty never degrades.
Slavery alwavs docs.
Second. Woman's vote is necessary for
good of othcis. She Is the enemy of forelcn
war and of domestic tin moll. She Is the
fiiend of peace and home. Her Influence for
good in many dliectlons would he multiplied
It she possessed the ballot. She deshes the
homes of the land to bo nine and sober , and
with her help they may become so. We do
not Invite women to the dirty pool of politics ,
nor docs she intend to enter that wool. 1'oll-
tics Is not necessarily unclean , if it Is un
clean , she Is not chargeable with the gicat
crime , for ciiine It is. Politics must bj purl-
tied or we aio lost. Hut it is sometimes
said that women do not desire the
ballot. Some may not ; many do not ; per
haps a majority do not , tint such indltleienco
cannot alfect the light of those who aio not
indifTeient. The conservative woman who
feels that her present duties aio biudcnsome
can boar them when she leali/es what she
can accomplish for her country and man
kind by the ballot , and she will as reverently
thank God for the opportunity , and will as
siduously dlschargo'lirr new obligations as
will her moro ladical sister , who lias long and
wearily laboied and leivcntly played for the
coming of equality of i Ighls , duties and hopes.

him for all the papers in the eases
which had passed congiess last night.
The clerks In the pension department
were kept busy all nlirht copying the recoids
so as to have them ready foi the president in

for pensions have passed congress when
they have been icfu'sed at the pension de-

evening :
"So tar as vv hat I said abo.it Mr. Davis is
conccincd , I liiivo no apologies to make.
Much ot the feeling that seems to have been
aroused Is due , no doubt , to the taut that only
misleading extiactsot my icnurks seems to
have been published In eastein and southern
papers. 1 should not have said a woid about
Jell Davis in the .sense used in speaking
about him , only , as I consider him , a veiy un-
impoitant man. I retened to him , as
von will see , only In Ids relation to
the people of iho south who were
lionoiing liim. Iiespect the soldiois of the
south tor their heroism and bi.iveiy anil
never have any tumble getting along with
them. Hut I tlospiso such men as Davis , who
has biought so much misery to his country
nnd shall never hcsltato to .say so ,
whatever otheis may lesont. This man
Jell Davis , who talks about llbeity
repiescnts only human slavery , the dogiedu-
tlon of labor , tlio tieason of secession and
icbellion , the honors and inUmiicsol Libhy
and Andeuonvllle , all , In slioit , that is most
malicious , vicious and damnable in Ameilc.in
hiitoiy. To talk of him as an Illustiions
statesman , who Is to bo honoicd witli Wash

ment of ioynltv and decency In tills gicat
country ho wickedly did so much to destiny. "
