, , , Clinton Brlggs' harness racing meeting
during ( ho past week at Union Park waa
rightly named "The Dluo Ribbon Race * , " for
no other nearly so successful meeting l\r
ever been held In cither ( he Mississippi or
Missouri valleys. With the exception of
one day ( ho weather was all tlmt could be
desired , and ( ho only drawback was ( ho
light attendance of ( ho first day. Tim
meeting wnffMull of sensational events and
oil sorts of records were broken. The
ntartfirs numbered somu of the fastest ani
mals that ever looked through n bridle.
The fields of starters were plenty large
enough , and every horse went out to do
his best ; In fact , It was one of ( hose rare
occurrences an honest horse race In every
The fastest mile ever traveled by a horse
In harness west of the Father of Waters
was recorded by Flying Jib In 2:05' : , > and
there were thirty-three heats ( rotted and
paced In an average of 2:17 : 4-5 , which Is
tlm fastest , average made on any regulation
association track. The fastest mile was
jnudu In 2:05V& : , while the slowest time was
- " 2:20. :
The nUendance was no ( ns Inrge'ns such
n meeting deserved , but Air. Urlggs IH sat-
iKfled because .of being * uccen.Mftil In every
other way , nnd fln.inco.s did not cut much
of a figure with him In his desiretn gjlvc
the people one good nice meeting. He encountered -
countered all tortw of obstacle * , nnd put up
ovt-ry pnri < o out of his own pocket before
lie would let u race be started. This nlonc
required nn outlay Of over J5.000 besides
the rent for the groundf , which wris con-
pldernbly higher tliiui It Hliould have been ,
for these races have made the track known
nil over the country , when It hail , hereto
fore remained unknown. Some of the corre-
pponduntH across ( be river bud the nerve to
Bend out the statement that the races were
Rotten up by Council HlnffH people , when
no u mutter of fact nil the money came
from Uimilm nnd three-fourths of the at
tendance \VIIH from this city nnd South
Omaha. Still there Is no reason why good ,
legitimate rnces nhould not be well patron
ized. Here are three cities adjoining each
other with a population of about 215,000. In
the three cities tliere arc many lovers of good
racing , but they have been "jobbed" by
Fcvernl hippodromes , nnd it takes some
thing unusual to bring them out now. Mr.
Drlggs accomplished tlmt much , nnd If ho
Was to give another meeting within a week
It would be liberally patronized.
Clinton UrlBBE was ncked yesterday If
ho wiifl going to bold another meeting. He
nnld : "Not this season , but I hope that
about this time next year I can hold the
biggest , speediest nnd best harness meetIng -
Ing ever held In the west. Of course this
depends on a good many things , among
which Is securing rates for the park. This
time I put up n pretty good price , but hope
tlmt they will assist mo next year. I have
the promise tlmt all tbo horses Unit have
been here this meeting will come again
next year If I bans up the purses. I be
lieve tlmt this meeting has satisfied the
people , nnd If I get up another meet I will
make It better than the one just ended , for
I can get the pick of the grand circuit
liorseH next year for early engagements. "
Mr. Brlggs was ably assisted In glvlns
the meeting by W , I' . McNnlr , Ed Duliols.
W. H. Mclntyre , D. T. Mount , Harry Leper ,
K. P. Peck and 11. II. Reed. AH of these
Kcntlemen are' well known turfmen , and
any meeting sanctioned by them has tn
be a legitimate one. Mr. McNalr will start
today for Helena nnd other points , where
the northwestern circuit races arc held ,
lie will net as starter for that association.
Colonel Harry Leper , who nave such Rood

circles In this part of the country Is the

record 2:07 : : > 1 , .on July 4. There will be sev
eral other events , but this will be the stel

under the wire In the final heat. Alix will
undoubtedly lower her record -this year ,
nnd Jones promises to cut the trotting rec
ord down to equal the one made by Flying
Jib In pacing. Flying Jib Is In line fettle
this season , and he can go faster than 2:01 : ,
for he has been showing spurts of quarters
nt a 2:00 : gait. Hut there Is a little Ne

Dick Tllden , driver for Clinton Ttrlggs , left
last night for Minneapolis , where he has
entered several of Ilrlggs' horses for the
races which bcKln the coming week. Dick
nays that his string Is rapidly getting Into

liable to draff off a picrc of the big purse
on July 2. Alamlto Is the horse whlrh Mr.
Drlggs named his breeding and stock farm
after , nnd Is considered ono of the coming
youngsters. Nearly all of these .horses won
either llrst or second place In the events In

Now that there has been a revival of
Interest In harness racing It seems as If
Omaha had enough moneyed men who loved
Buch sport to club together and build one
of the finest mile tracks In the country
nnd make nn Ideal driving park for such
llrst-clnss events. There are rnoimli people
here to give such nn enterprise good sup
port , nnd with the right kind of people
lit the head of It It would be a success
from the beginning. Omaha has many line
trotters and pacers , and the Brings nnd
1'axton strings of horses jiiro away above
the average , even In the far eastern coun
try. Then ( hero are the strings nt Denver ,
Kansas- City , Sioux City. Dos Molnes , Lin

could bo secured for very rcnsonnlilti purses.
With reduced rates on the railways good
races would bring 20,000 visitors to the city

A special call for a meeting of lodge No.

strike situation , was Issued at 3 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. Owing to the short notice
only a small number of members of No. 12
answered the call nnd met In Knights of
Labor hall last evening.
President Miller was In the chair.

It was decided to appoint a committee of

The members of the American Railway
union here will canvass the other labor organ
izations and endeavor to work up sympathy
In the present strlko and ascertain what the
feeling of these orders are In regard to strik
ing for sympathy's sake. Those present
seemed to feel ( hat a strike hero would be
useless , at least that was the general feeling ,
but they did not declare themselves boldly
against a strike , as It was deemed best to
feel around for a day or two and find out
Just how the land lay.
A telegram from Debs was read. H re
iterated his former request that the Omaha
American Railway union go out on u strike ,
and promised that the strike would not be
called off until every American Railway
union man had been put back to work In
his old place. This was encouraging , and
some of those assembled were In favor of
taking Debs at his word and going out at
After a long discussion It was decided to
wait until Monday night , when a joint meetIng -
Ing of lodges 12 and 193 will be held at
Gate City hall to discuss the question. It
Is expected that some decisive action will
be taken then.
The extent of the boycott , while not being
felt in the passenger service of the roads en
tering Omaha , Is seriously Impairing the
handling cf freight. At noon yesterday
the Northwestern Issued an order declining
to receive shipments for Northern Pacific
territory on account of the complete tie-up
on that road. It also declines to receive
perishable freight In less than car load loto
for the Union Stock yards , Chicago , and
points cast. They are taking-- however , all
car load shipments for the Union yards and
points east , having received no advices as
yet from the eastern lines as to disposition
The Milwaukee and Burlington on th&
other hand are not taking shipments from
South Omaha consigned to the Union Stock
yards for the reason that the switchmen in
the yards refuse to handle freight of roads

No trouble is anticipated by the Missouri
Pacific officials at this point , Superintendent
Rathburn being so fully Impre sed with that

their recent trip over the Missouri Pacific.
A careful canvass of the men on the Mis

three of them are members of the American

Everything Is arriving and leaving on
time on the Union Pacific. While the offl-
clals at headquarters are aware that Presi
dent Debs sent a general order to all union *
on the Union Pacific to join In the boycott ,
up to noon none of the men had compiled
with the order of the president. At Chey
enne , Laramle and Green River meetings
were held Friday by the local members
of the American Railway union at those
points , but nt headquarters It was given
out that a decided difference of opinion
cropped out among the leaders as to
whether the time was ripe for the western
employes of tlfe Union Pacific to Join ac
tively in the boycott. In consideration of
tills uncertainty among the men them
selves , passenger and freight service on
the "Overland" Is moving along very peace
fully. At Salt Lake and Ogden trains left
on time yesterday , and Superintendent
Molloy telegraphed from Cheyenne that his
division was entirely peaceful , all trains
moving with full equipment. . Superin
tendent HrlnkcrhofT of the Kansas divi
sion also reports a peaceful condition of
affairs with him.
General Manager Burt of the Elkhorn
stated that the Northwestern would be one
road to adhere rigidly to a principle. That
while It avoided a fight wherever possible ,
the present condition warranted the North
western In staying In until the boycott was
flattened out. .

control of Judge Gundy , he Is liable to run

who strike In Jail , as the Judge emphatically
declared yesterday that even the refusal
( o handle Pullman cars by the employes of
this road would bring them In contempt of
court and they would bo dealt with accord
Judge Dundy was shown the letter pub
lished In The Bee Friday from Judge
Caldwell and ho said : "I believe that
Judge Caldwjll will do Just what he says he
will , and L have made up my mind to the
L-fTcct that In case the men go on a strike
on the Union Pacific lines In my jurisdic
tion I will deal with them promptly and
effectively If they attempt to Interfere with
any ot the trains or cars. I understand
that this Is also the position taken by Judge
Snnborn , as well as Judge Caldwell , but I
will not wait for them to act. I will pro
tect ( he Union Pacific with all ( he law at
my command If necccssary , and seu
that the orders to the receivers of the road
are faithfully carried out. No men can re
main In the employ ot the Union Pacific In
this state and refuse to handle any cars that
may bo turned over to them. Tliere are some
laws controlling the Union Pacific which are
much more stringent than those given the
receivers of any other road. The orders
make It unlawful for the employes to refuse
to handle-'any cars and If they should refuse
these men would be dealt with accordingly ,
and the laws will be enforced by this court ,
Debs or no Debs , and any violation of the
laws will bo followed by severe penalties.
"Any employe has a right to quit the serv
ice ot the road any time he wants to , but
his place will be filled with other men Imme
diately , and he will not interfere with the
rules or business of the company except at
his peril. The men who wish ( o continue
In the employ of this road must discharge
their duties regardless of outside Interfer
ence , or they will bo discharged from the
service , The agitator will receive little en
couragement to start a strike on roads In the
hands ot government receivers. "

WASHINGTON , June 30. Despite the
developments of ( he Pullman strike today ,
the Postofilce department considers the
dltlon of the mall service very much
proved. The postal situation In California
remains unchanged. At St. Paul the situa
tion Is reported Improv.ed. The Great
Northern carries no Pullman cars , but uses
its own sleepers , and thp Northern Pacific
Is sending out trains again , though there
are some trains ; blocked at Billings and
Livingston , Mont. , and Hope , Idaho. Re
ports of tlie delays In Montana and Idaho
were forwarded today to1 the attorney gen

TERRE HAUTE , Ind. , Juno 30. Chief
Sargent of the Loco t've ' Firemen author
ized the following olllqlal statement :
"The local firemen ; . as an organization ,
can take no part In tnfs boycott , as Its laws
do not permit It , and I have no authority , as
Its chief executive , to order a sympathetic
strike. In fact , I cannot order a strike .at
all , and can only give approval to one after
( he order has voted a strike , We desire It
understood that we shall In no way antagon
ize the American Railway union In Un pres
ent struggle , and have eo advised the offi
cers of the organization , "

Rtnml helplessly by uiul hope for a speedy
settlement of the trouble. Every hour th.it
tli j struggle Is prolonged places the perliha-
blc product of a vast section of country In
greater Jeopardy. If the strike shall be pro-
lor.gcd many days fruit products to the
vnluo ot hundreds of thousands of dollars
will rot Ir the hands Of the growers and
commission men. Under a hot sun , peaches ,
apricots , cherries , berries and ninny other
varieties are ripening rapidly. The crop
must be moved at once or become a tola !
loss. Fruit has become too ripe for ship
ment and must be thrown away. Even the
canneries cannot bo reached by many
growers. It IB estimated that 200 car loads
of fruit arc perishing between California
points on the Missouri river , but this loss
will bo very Email as compared with the
loss In the orchards. The San Francisco
fruit market was glutted today and there
was a general tumble In prices. All the
steamers from Sacramento river.points and
around the bay came In loaded. Every
grower who could reach the tide water
rushed tils fruit to the city , lest It should
be his last and only market. Much of the
fruit has been mider a hot sun on river
beds and had become very soft. The city
market , too , IK limited. Most of the big can-
ncrles arc at Interior points , dependent al
together upon the railroads.
OAKLAND , Cal. , Juno 30. 7 p. m. The
strike Is broken , lit least temporarily. Trains
with PullmaiiB attached are going out on
time without disturbance. At 0:30 : a local
train with the Yoscmltc sleeper pulled out ,
and a few minutes later the Los Angeles
express followed. This train was composed
of two mall cars , four passenger cars and
a diner and four sleepers. On board were
two United States deputy marshals , who
will go as far as Mendota , where the Juris
diction of the Northern district of California
ends. At Mendota deputies from the souih-
crn district will take charge. There were
cjulte a number of passengers on board ,
though none of the ears were well fllled.
The overland express , via Ogdcn , will not
go out tonight , but the Oregon train will
Master Mechanic McKenzIc ot the South
ern I'calflc stated tonight that the Pacific
coast head of the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Firemen had received a dispatch from
Grand Chief Sargent , telling him that un
less firemen employed by the Southern Pa-
clflc company returned to work Immediately
that they would bo expelled from the order.
Mr. Sargent further stated that the firemen -
' men had no Interest In the light against
Pi'llman and had no business to strike.
The Oakland lodge of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers decided today , after
a protracted session , that they will not par
ticipate In the strike. Furthermore , they
decided that they would work with non
union firemen , but not with any renegade
union man who takes the place of a striker.
This action will hurt the American Railway
union , as they have depended upon the en
gineers to assist them.
LOS ANGBLES , Cal. , Juno 30. This after
noon's train , made up of an engine , mall
car and day coach , pulled out on the Santa
Fe without obstruction. The train had a
nonunion engineer , fireman and conductor.
The passenger coach contained no passengers
other than twelve deputy marshals. It is
stated that their destination Is Ilarstow , and
that they will bring down from Darstow all
the cars they can haul and also all pas
sengers who are stalled tliere. United States
Judge Ross has prepared an opinion In which
he contends that the em'ployes of the Santa
Fe are violating the law In refusing to handle
trains on whIcH'JUfeUnited' ' States malls-
should -be carried so' long as" they consider
themselves employes of the road. He there
fore Intends Issuing an order compelling
the men to perform all their regular and
accustomed duties so long as they remain
in the employ of the Santa Fe company.

The strlko Is now on here In all Its force
and traffic Is rapidly coming to a standstill.
As a result of a conference held last night
and orders from headquarters the switch
men on both sides of the river refued this
morning to handle any cars whatsoever ,
and freight movement Immediately stopped.
Passenger traffic , however , moved as usual ,
all trains leaving on time. Not from any
asslttancc of the striking American Railway
nnlon men , however , but because the Ter
minal Ralllway association's yardmast'.rs
and assistants , who have never been al
lowed to join any labor union , formed a
sufficient force to make up the passenger
trains completely and promptly and to start
them on schedule time.
The strikers at this point now number In
the neighborhood of 2,000 men. These In
clude the switchmen of the Terminal as
sociation , 200 In number , and also those In
all the Individual railroad yards , between
1,500 and 1,800 In number.
As the strike became general the Idle
men began to gather In knots In the vari

The strike of the switchmen on the Mis

tenders and tower men went out almost to n
man , over 400 stopping work at 7 n , m.
The men were not expected to go out until
noon and their unexpected action left the
road In bad shape. One of the switchmen
at Knglewood threw his switch and locked
It , ( paving the yards just before the heavy
Omal.a train arrived. The train was brought
to n standstill In time to avoid a wreck and
after a delay the switches were set and the
train pulled Into the depot , carrying Its
I'tillniuns. The suburban service Buffered
severely , Switches at many places were
spiked and several trains were stopped and
serious trouble narrowly averted In the sub
urbs. Crowds of striker * swarmed through
the yards , uncoupling cars as fast as they
were attached to the engines , and Interfer
ing with the work in many ways. Two of
the "dummy" trains were detained for llvo or
six hours and the ofllclalH of the road were
compelled to man the switches and trains.
At several points In the yards police were
called In to maintain order. General Super
intendent Dunlap. after a lour of the yards ,
admitted that the situation was serious.
"We expect. " Mr. Dunlap said , "to have
trains running smoothly In a short time.
We will put now men In the places of the
strikers at once and believe thai many of
cur men will go back to work shortly. "
All Ihe trainmen at the Union stock yards
have struck In obedience to Debs' order.
The number of the strikers Is only 300 , but
no cars can be switched In or out of the

CHICAGO , Juno 30. The General Mana
gers association In session today Issucn. the
following statement regarding the strlko :
"Tliere Is no attempt made to deny the
strike Is widespread and serious. This
embarrasses the freight traffic of the west.
It s the greatest strike In extent since
the troubles of 1877-78. We. have no.In-
tentlop of entering into a compromise with
the strikers on any basis whatever. The
railroad companies fall to see the Justice
of the American Railway union fighting
Mr. Pullman over the heads of the railroad
companies , who have no control over Mr.
Pullman's movements or his manufacturing
business. The men now on strike are con
sidered as employes who have resigned
their positions and who arei not anxious fo >
work. Any men who desire employment
under the railroad companies centerIng -
Ing In Chicago , and who nro com
petent , will be furnished positions
and will bo afforded all the protection that
lies In the power of the companies , police
of the city of Chicago , sheriff of Cook
county , and the state of Illinois. Men arc
now being hired In the cast and brought
to Chicago to take the places of men who
will not work. It has been charged by the
American Railway union that thp General
Managers association Is Importing men from
Canada. This statement Is absolutely false.
The railroad companies do not propose to
employ any men to take the places of the
men now on strike , unless such men are
American citizens , and wherever wo can find
a man who wants to work to take the place
of a man who will not work , whether the
substitute comes from New York or Cali
fornia , we propose to give him a Job and
see that he Is protected. "
There was a big crowd today at the United
States marshal's office , men who wanted po
sitions as deputies. Marshal Arnold said ho
could procure thousands of good men with
out any delay. The men were mainly work
men out of employment. The government
does not furnish the deputies with arms of
any kind , nothing but a commission and a
star , but each applicant Is required to have
a revolver of his own.
United States Maishal Arnold received a
reply this afternoon from Attorney General
Olney to the telegram sent by the marshal
Intho morning. Mr. Olney Instructed the
marshal to grant the request of the Rail
way Managers association for deputies to
protect the mall trains. The attorney
general's reply was : "You are nuthorl/-Ml
to employ sufficient deputies to prevent the
obstruction of the mails and to arrest all
persons who may attempt such obstruction.
