The speakers were of an the in- August Spies, editor cendiary paper called beitler ^Zeltung, A. R. Sam Fnnliug. The police were held in re- Ar- At first the socialists fell back, but this was only momentary. The meeting had begun with about 2,000 present but not more than one-half of that number remained when the police ordered the meeting to disperse. As the police renewed the order to disperse, two or three bombs were suddenly thrown into thiir ranks, and they exploded with great force, and in a mo ment twenty or thirty officers lay dying or wounded on the ground. The suddenness and unexpected choracter of the deadly at tack for a moment discencerted the police, but those uninjured soon rallied and draw ing their pistols fired indiscriminately upon tli'j crowd. The mob seemed to be well armed and returned the flie, wounding a good many more of tho polici'meu. Still the desiro of the larger number was to got away and iu a few minutes the police held undisputed possession of the square. At 11 o'clock, twenty police men lay ou the floor of tho Desplaines station, all disabled, aud probably half that number seriously so. Others were reported to be still lying in the open square, either dead or badly wounded. A telegram sent out at that hour ou the night of the 4th, thus described the scene. On a table iu the station house, where the wounded policemen are, one poor fellow lies stretched on a table with ter rible bullet wounds in his breast. A few feet distant a man with tattered clothes and a mortal wound in hi« side is lyiug in sensible on a cot, Around tho room in chairs, with their legs bandaged up and resting on supports of different kinds, are some fifteen or twenty of the officers who were wounded by tho bombs. Not a groan or complaint is heard from any of them. Another officer who was found ly ing in a doorway where he had been car ried, or whore he had dragged himself, has just been brought in frightfully wounded. There are some twenty of the Socialists in tho cells in the basement. Nearly all of them ara wounded and one of them, a young fellow of about 29, is dead. A latter report makes the following re capitulation One socialist dead, two officers dead four other officers who may not survive and thirty police who have wounds, many of a most serious character. Iu addition to this probably fifty people, nearly all members of the socialist crowd of citizens of the vicinity were shot or otherwise wounded A great number of these were quickly taken to different hospitals and private houses, so that it may be days be fore the full extent of the horrors can be brought to light. The 8th inst. in Chicago WOB a day of a good deal of excitement but no .very serious disturbance took place. The indignation agaiust'tlie bomb throwing socialists was Intent and outspokcu. August Spies, editor of the Arbeitor Zeitung and Michael Schwab associate editor aud Bam Fieldling were arrested and locked up without trial. Parsons, the third orator on the night of the bomb throwing, is iu hiding. His negro wife was arrested but would not de clare his whereabouts. Schwab is suspect ed of being the man who threw the deadly bomb. AU the prisouers will be held on the charge of murder. Tho coroners jury in Chicago found August Spies, Chas. Spies, M. Schwab, and Sam Fielden guilty of inciting the killing of the police aud they are a" held to the grand jury without bail. Thoro is a strong demand for their speedy trial and oxecu tion. Twenty-eight thousand dollars has been subscribed in Chicago for t.he families of the killed and wounded policemen. Two more Socialistic organs have been captured by the police in Chicago and the editors locked up.

There was a Berious conflict In Chicago on the 8d between the eight hour strikers and tha police. A crowd rf 6,000 strikers held a meeting near the McCormick reaper *.°d then went to the works and at tacked the building* and the workmen. Police were sent for and a severe battle raged. Finally 150 policemen were assem bled and they succeeded in despersing the 5*®/' No one was killed outright but ten or twelve were wounded, and some may die.

General Master Workman Powderly, of the Kuights of Labor, acting under the authority vested in him by the generai ex ecutive board, has issued a call to the various assemblies of theorderfor a special session of the general assembly, to be held iu Cleveland, Ohio, Tuesday, May 25. The causes leading to the calling of tne session are given as follows: First—Thera 01 4 vi vwoiug UIOUlUCI DUiy the order requires changes in the laws which the generai executive board have no authority to make. Second—The laws in relation to the gov ernment of boycotting are wholly inade quate to compel obedience on the part of assemblies that believe in boycotting for evory offense, whether great or small. Third—The laws in relation to strikes do not give the generalsxecutive board power to interfere in such matters until after the strike has been inaugurated. —The order has become involved ties with trade societies, and an effort is being made to create a rupture be tween these societies and the Knights of Labor. A.t Milwaukee a crowd of eight hour strikers visited the Milwaukee & St. Paul shops on the 3d and compelled 1,500 work men to stop to avoid a riot. Not more than 300 wanted to quit work but all were compelled to. The Reliance Iron works employing 1,200 men were next assaulted, and the proprietors decided to close until tbe excitement subsides. It is repoited that the Knights of Labor have expellod Martin lions because he refused to obey Master Workman Powder 1) '8 orders and because he refused to ar bitrate the southwestern strike. beventeen hundred men employed at the Deering Harvester works in Chicago have struck for ten hours pay for eight hours work, double pay for over work, and 20 per ceut. advance on piece work.

Cook, a wealthy Louisville woman, who, as she drove homo one day in her carriage, discov ered a brutal-looking ruffian emerging from aside entrance to her premises with a well-stored bag upon his shoul der. The man's wholo appearance breathed the word "burglar" so plain ly that Mrs. Cook whispered to her coachman to shadow him, and the equipage was turned around and fol lowed slowly after the retreating vil lian. After many devious windings he was tracked to his lair, which proved to be a respectable hotel. Tho carri age vas at once driven to Police Head quarters, and two detectives in plain clothes, accompanied Mrs. Cook back to the lair.

This city is situated on a "live stock trail," so to speak. Montana shipped through this city from seventy to eighty thousand beeves. The shipment this year will be larger, and shipments will probably increase for several years to come. Thousands of yearling3 are driven yearly to the Montana ranges to be fed a couple of years or more, and then shipped east through this city to a mar ket. When, by immigration and nat ural increase, tho ranges will bo so heavily 6tocked that none will fatten on the range, which time 1 have heard variously estimatod by the ranchmen at from two to five years distant, Mon tana will not ship beevos but tho frame —tho bono and muscle which must bo fattened elsewhere to make beef. Now tho question occurs, how can this stream of animals beprolitably stopped here, bought from the ranchmen, and sold to tho consumer or otherwise. That would bo a market. The incen tive to buying and selling is a profit. In this case tho ranchmen would es teem it a profit to them if they could sell here so as to net them as much money as in Chicago, thus saviug the time and troublo of going to Chicago. But tho man or men who buy here must make a proiit. LA HUE CAL'ITAI, NEEDED. To make a proiit by slaughtering and distributing dressed beef over the country requires an enormous capital and organization, numerous cold stor age warehouses, refrigerator cars, etc. As beef dressed can only bo preserved a comparatively few days, it follows that these concerns must slauglitor every (lay and must have beeves to slaughter every day. For about throe months only fat cattle come from the ranges, beginning say in August and ending in November. The farms of Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Iowa and other corn growing states furnish the slaugh terhouses the other nine months. Now, whilo I havo estimated from the best data at my command that our local consumption and that of the country west and north of here is fully equiva lent to the present annual product of Montana and our own state, I can see no reason why wo should not bo able to at least kill beef for our own consumption except the difficulty of holding the animals here so as to give the slaughter-houses a daily sup ply. This can only bo done by feeding. If tho resources of our state aro such that cattle can be profitably fed here during the winter months and fattened, I believe it is practicable to establish a market here, otherwise I am unable to see any basis for such a market. It is upon this point that information is desired by our friends from Montana, and it is upon this point that we as citi zens of Minnesota would desire to hear an expression from them. Demonstrate that range cattle can bo bought in tho fall, fed by our farmers or otherwise during the winter, and increase their woiglit sufficiently that the increased weight added to tho increased price usually obtainable iu the winter and spring will bo sufficient to make a sat isfactory proiit to the feeder,and a mar ket. will follow easily and naturally. OUR LOCAL CONSUMPTION. If it is true that the local consump tion is equal to the surplus of Montana and our own farms together, by slaugh tering here this market would havo tho advantage of tho Chicago market equivalent to tho freight both ways, viz: from here to Chicago and from Chica go back hero, amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars, which could be divided between tho Montana producer, the feeder rnd the consumer. Statistics show that Minnesota can raise com. In 1879, tho last report which I have seen, shows a production of 15,000,000 bush els. If we can raise 15,000,000 bushels of corn, wo can raise 80,000,000 or 100, 000,000. Tho census tables show that the average corn production of Minne sota in 1879 was thirty-four bushels per aero, while in Indiana it was only thirty ono, Ohio thirty-four, Illinois thirty-six and only seven states in the Union pro duced a larger average, one-half of them being in New England, where tho fields are small and highly cultivated. The same census shows that tho aver age per aero in Minnesota was: Corn, 34 bushels wheat 12 bushels. With wheat at $1 por bushel, as it was then, and corn at 25 cents, an acre of wheat would bring-SI 2 and an acre of corn $7.50. Notwithstanding the increased cost of raising an acre of wheat, it was probably a slightly more prolitable crop but as now wheat is worth say GO cents, and the avcrago production is reduced to 7 or 10 bushels, an acre of wheat will bring 84.80 to $6, while an average acre of corn at 25 cents will bring $8.50, an it oven at20 cents acorn crop is undoubtedly moro prolitablo than wheat. T1IE FEEDIND QUESTION. As 1 havo said, 1 havo had no experi ence in feeding, but within the last few mor.ths I havo soon ligures, said to bo accurate, which seemed to prove that the farmers of Minnesota can "feed cattle" say for four winter months during the fattening process, at a net profit of say $10 to $15 per head. If this is correct, and we could by any moans place it wiithin the reach of tho reach of the farmers of this state that each could care for say thirty lioad, and make a profit of $10 per head or $300 for the winter, do you realizo what a boon it would be to the farmer? Three hundred dollars net proiit to each of tho 100,000 farmers of Minnesota means $30,000,009 net profit to tho state. Do you realize how much tho average far nuo of this state needs additional in dustry which will give him an addi tional incomo? Take the United States census tables of 1880 and you will find tho statistics of the crop for 1879. You will find in that year that Minnesota farmers produced 85,000,000 bushels of wheat, 215,000 bushels of rye, 23, 000,000 bushels of oats, 15,000,000 bushels of corn, 3,000,000 bushels of barlov, 41,000 bushels of buckwheat, a little flax, a little sorgum, poul try, eggs, butter cheese, garden truck, potatoes, etc., etc, that the whole value of all these products, ex cept live stock,on tho farms before it had paid any freight, including all sold and consumed by the farmer and his fam ily, amounted to $49,469,000. This was the gross value, without deducting tho cost to raise it. Now divide the gross sum, $49,469,000, between 92,400 farms then in the state, and I am sure you will be astonished, as I was, to find it amounts to only $533 to each farm. Mind this is not profit, or what tho crop brought over and above the cost or production. Applying the same test to our neighboring slate of Iowa, we find tho average farm pro duces $734, about 40 per cent. more. HOW TO DO IT. What can we do to enoourage tho adding of live stoolvraising to the agri cultural industries of Minnesota? In my ju4gment nothing would do so much as an established market. As it is now, if the farmer raises wheat he can turn it into cash by hauling it to tho nearest railway station any aay in the year at its market value. If he raises steers, ho must wait till some itinerant purchaser happens along and makes him an offer or perchance, ho may sell it to tho local butcher on sixty days time and take his chances of getting paid. For the average farmer to ship directly to Chicago is evideutlyimpraoticable and if he can't soil Btock what is the use of raising it? I have demonstrated, to my satisfac tion, at least, that we can't have a market hero unless tho farmers can feed stock, and that the farmers can't keep stock until there is a market. The farmers have no money to buy stock with. Tho most of them think they caD't feed cattlo ."because they can't raise corn." Tho question is what to do about it. My own judg ment is that somo of us who have the conrago of our convictions must build a big barn like the}' havo near Omaha, and till it this fall with say 2,000 head of steers and feed them during the winter on tho available products of tho country, and demonstrate that a profit can bo made in fattening cattle here the same as the bonaza farmers demonstrated that wheat could be raised in the Red River Valley. Onco demonstrate by actual figures that it is profitable, the farmers will take hold of it. Men of capital and our banks will furnish money to carry tho cattle whilo being fed by the farmers. THE HESULT. A steady daily supply of beoves will be produced the wholo year through then follow slaughtering houses and their accompanying industries in their natural sequence, adding directly to the wealth, population and retail trade of our cities, and by adding to the wealth of the farming community in directly adding largely to the whole sale commerce and tho manufacturing industries—increasing the demand for lumber: and by bettor cultivation of tho land while decreasing tho acreagc cultivated in wheat will actually in crease the quantity raised. Thus all classes will bo benefited. It seems to me to be a matter of so much import ance that it should claim tho best thought of our best men. Looking to tho future, tho question of a proper location foryards, feeding and slaught ering establishments may bo a proper one to consider, though I consider this of secondary importance. Upon this matter I have tried to consider the question fairly and upon its merits. It has occurred to me that tho location should be outside the city proper, easi ly accessible to tho city with good drainage and plenty of water. Such a location I havo secured, located about four miles down tho river from tho city. It does not follow, cf course, because I havo purchased this land for this pur pose, it is tLvi best location, or that such establishments should be located there. In whatever wo may do in this matter I want tho hearty co-operation of ovory business man and citizen—and all these matters must bo decided on their merits. •I* J. niU'8 Remarks. Mr. Stickuey spoko about the corn crop of Minnesota in 1879. If he had taken the figures for 1885 lie would have found that Iowa—and Iowa I con sider in tho front rauk of agricultural states—in 1885 raised thirty-fivo bushels of corn to tho acre, while Minnesota raised thirty-seven and a half bushels. [Applauso]. Wo havo a county— Kandiyohi—where it was said no ono could raise corn. But that county raised last year 90,000 bushels on poor land too, and didn't ship a bushel, but fed it to cattle. 1 had 138 acres in corn and raised an average of fifty* three aud one-half bushels to tho aero. It was not touched with frost and I harvested it. A few years ago it was said a man was pretty far from home when he was where they could not raise corn. Now a man goes a good ways from home and finds ho can raise corn. It's hard to say what you can and what you cannot raise. There is ono thing the people lose sight, of when they undertake to feed cattle—that they can do it without corn. The highest price paid in the world for cat tle sold on the hoof is in a country where they never raise an ear of corn and don't feed it. That is in tho northeast of Scotland. in tho county of Aberdeen. They send their animals to market in better condition and get one cent or three-quarters of a cent a pound at least moro for them than any other cattlo in the market, and they can't raise corn. Now I can't afford to bo wasteful in my farming (laughter), and so I imported a mail from that country just to feed my stock. We havo an agricultural university in Minnesota with a largo endowment, but no place where a man can learn to feed cattlo. Now I pay my farmer $2,500 a year [A voice—"Don't ho strike?"] and he don't strike. Now the difference between intelligent farm ing and farming as carried on iu our scato, is the difference between poverty and wealth. Nowhere where there is a civilized state of things is the soil culti vated with as little intelligence as in Minnesota. If there is a left-handed way to do it our farmers will iind it out, aud continue in it. A man will got a farm, and he wants a big one— 500 or 1,000 acres. He will cultivate 300 acres and put a mortgage on it all, and expect to work four months in the year. Now there is no place out side tho tropics wliero a man can live by working four months in a year. Now it seems that they don't catch on they don't find tho way to do better. I thought the trouble was with tho railroads, I heard so much about it, and I examined our own consciences. [Great laughter.] After considerable raking I found ono. [Renewed laugh tor.] All well regulated railroads have one [laughter and remark bv Gen. Becker, "He must havo used a"micro scope."] I wanted to seo if it was our fault. In tho competition for settlers we Iind that they go to Kansas and Ne braska, wherj land is worth $15 to $20 an acre. They can't live here. They can't raise corn. Thov want to feed stock instead of going broke on wheat. dou't mean the men who get rich aising wheat in Chicago. [Laughter.] NO MORE HIGH-PRICED WHEAT. The day for high-priced wheat is gone forever from this Country, and will never return as long as wheat is raised for export. Some governments want cheap wheat and are willing to put up nioney to get it. Groat Britain paid threo hundred millions sterling to open the wheat fields of India. The rent paid is $3.50 per acre, and the price of transportation from the interior to tho seaport at Calcutta is moro th^ from Devil's Lake to Liverpool and yet they sell it in Liverpool for 75 cents per bushel. We havo been ex porting 70,000,000 or 80.000,000 bush els per year. Not over 15,000,000 bush eJs will be sent, however, Of tho prcs ent crop. Tho average crop in this country is 400,000,000. Of this we use for bread and seed 365.000,000. This leaves 45.000,000, bushels, and thiB res idue makes the price for all the balance. ftirmcr8 would buy this 45,000, 000 bushels and dump it into Lake Michigan they^ would, make money bv it, But they needn't do it if they re duce the production 15 per cent, they would reduce the 400,000,000 to S4(V 000,000, and this against 315,000,000 for bread and seed would leave 15,000 000 deficit, which would bring Dakota wheat up to $1 a bushel. Now, bo side, saving this 15 per cent, in area, expense and time, the farmer can put in another crop that will be even more profitable. For tho last four years-every man must do something for a living [laughter] —I hare beeu raising cattle. commenced in a small way. I fed my steers on grass and cabbage, a little ground oats and oil cake, and tho last two weeks I put in a handful of cheap brown sugar. I sent four steers to Chicago to compete in the stock show with six hundred fat cattle, from older states and states that make a business of feeding cattle. At Chicago I found it an Illinois show, and they didn't like to seo people coming from Minnesota and compete with them on fat cattlo. Ranchmen were thero watching them, and the result made thom look blue. I took tho sweepstakes prizo lor the best two-year old, and then killed and dressed bim. He dressed at 1,384 pounds [applause], and ho dressed 71.4 per cent of his gross weight [ap plause], and that was better than and other steer over soen in Chicago. Then tho butchers came and didn't know whoso ox was being gored, so they wore unbiased. They gave me the first prizo for tho best carcass of dressed meat, the first, prize for tho largest per centage of edible food in tho carcass, the first prize for the largest per cent of dressed meat to the live steer, the first prize for the best moat and the gold medal. I took theso prizes with Four steers in competition with COO. [Applause.] I fed no corn. I fed them cabbage, turnips and ground oats. My farm had been cultivated for twen ty-fivo years, and was pretty bad land. WHAT HE KNOWS ABOUT FARMING. I sowed my turnips with a drill, cul tivated them twice, thinned them out and when ripe cut the tops off with a hoe. It cost $12.80 per acre to raise them, and I got 680 bushels to tho aero, the cost being less than one and a half cents to tho bushel. Now tho daily rations for 100 steers—and one man can take care of. a hundred steors— the rations consist first of 1,000 pounds of hay at $3 per ton, and I will say that there is onougb hay burned in Minne sota annually, if sold at $3 per acre, to pay for the entire wheat crop of tho state for five years. There will be also 4,200 pounds of roots or seventy bushels, at two conts a busliol—and mine didn't cost one and a half cents, and were raised on poor soil. Next comes 400 pounds of ground grain at ono ceut per pound, and 200 pounds of oil-cake at $20 per ton. Tho total rations then for 100 steers for 0110 day arc 5,800 pounds of foed. or fifty-eight pounds for each animal, which costs $8.90 or $801 for ninety days. Now, good stockers at a good price, three and one-half years old, average weight 1,150 pounds, can be bought for three cents a pound, or $3,450 for the hard of 100, making the total investment in feed and steors $4,251. Now, 100 steers should gain 250 pounds each dur ing the ninety days, making their av erage woight 1,400 pounds, or a total of 140,000 pounds, which at 4J cents a pound, would bo $6,300. Now the manure from those animals is worth one-third the whole cost. It would bo cheap at $267, or a total on the credit side of $6,507, or a proiit of $2,316, or $23.16 to each animal for threo months. [Applause.] Tho following is tho above informa tion in a tabulated form: Daily rations for 100 steers— 1,000 lbs. hay $3 per ton 4,200 lbs. roots, 70 bu. 2c per bu. 400 lbs. ground pram lc per lb. 200 lbs. oil cake (tf $20 per ton....

Theso figures all allow a margin on the safe side. We can raise corn in Minnesota, but we can raise something better than corn to produce beef. It is impossible to estimate what tho growth of roots would bo in tho Red river valley— probably 50 per cent, more than 1 havo given. FAST PASSENGER TltAINS AT liAST.
