Last Stasro of the Tariff Bill Reached After a Spirited Debate. WASHINGTON. July 7.-The intense in terest and wild excitement which marked the passage of the Wilson bill by the House some months ago. and which was then transferred in a modified and more dignified form to the Senate, broke out apain in the House to-day, when the tariff bill was put In conference after some lively debate In the House, the amendments being disagreed to in gross and without opportunity for separate votes on special schedules. Mr. Reed took occasion to twit the Democrat for following the precedent set by the Re publicans In the Fifty-first Congress, a pro ceeding which they had violently denounced at the time. Mr. Wilson then urged on the House the necessity of standing steadfastly by the two cardinal principles of the House bill rree raw material ana the ad valorem sys , tern of taxation and of thus keeping faith ; with the people who had sent them to Con ; grvss to effect this reform. He was an swered by Mr. Reed, Mr. Tayne and others, and then, after th adoption of Mr. Wil son's motion and the appointment of con i ferees, the House at 1:55 o'clock adjourned out of respect to the memory of Repre- sentatlve Lisle, of Kentucky. ew York Itnnker Arretted.

Numerous Smaller Riots During? the Day ilethods of the Fire Bugs Dispo sition of Uncle Sam's Soldiers. CHICAGO, July 7.--"Ai d It is further or dered that If any act of hostility be com mitted, such as firing upon railroad trains, assaulting trainmen, marshals or soldiers, by throwing at them rocks, pieces of iron, or other missiles, those assaults shall be repelled by the use of firearms." So wrote General Nelson A. Miles, in his order, issued this afternoon, detailing fed eral troops to assist United States marshals in preventing obstruction to the movement of mail and interstate-commerce trains. It was, in short, notice to all rioters that tem porizing with them had ceased, and there after the policy of the government would be put to an end to their'riot, arson and pillage, by shooting to kill whenever and wherever necessary. As chance would have it, however, it did not fall to the lot of the national troops to be the first to carry out the spirit of this order. Company F, Second Regiment, I. N. G., had that dis tinction. The story of the encounter be tween the thirty-eight young militiamen composing this company, and a vicious mob at Forty-seventh and Loomis streets, Is '.old elsewhere in these dispatches. Up to 4 o'clock in the afternoon the day had been a comparatively quiet one. To be sure, small mobs had been going about all through the district west of State 6treet and south of Thirty-ninth street, burning a few cars here and there, and threats of firing railroad shops and the like, but it was more in the nature of bushwhacking than anything else and not at all like the massed bands of strikers "who gathered along the railroad tracks yesterday and the day before, absolutely blocking all movement by sheer force of numbers. This state of affairs was doubtless the outgrowth of various conditions, such as the presence of a vastly increased force of soldiers and the fact that yesterday's wrecking and firing of cars had left a large share of the tracks to the south im passable, so that about all the discernible movement was in the shape of wrecking trains endeavoring to bring order out ot the chaos which existed all through that re gion. The disturbed section to-day em braced a space of about twenty-five square miles, not to mention the sporadic bit of incendiarism on the Burlington road at Ciawford and Western avenues, the latter having the distinction of being the work of women and children. It is estimated that In the district mentioned not less than fifty thousand rioters ere out at one time and another during the day, but the ground was so thoroughly patrolled by the police, the marshals and the military that they found little opportunity of getting togth.et In large numbers, as they have been doing heretofore. Still some of them at the stock yards found time for indulging in the grim humor of laying out a graveyard in due order, electing headstones at the graves therein, bearing the names of their pet aversions, including that of the President of the United States. The feature of the day was the showing of it3 teeth by the Building Trades Council of the city in calling out the steam fitters in the big packing houses at the stockyards, with the threat, that it was merely a pre liminary to calling out its 25.000 members, and the tying up of all building in the city. Another feature of the day wa3 the pa trolling of sentries before the federal sub treasury, in whose vaults lie some fifteen xniilioa dollars of Uncle San' money. which General Miles feared might prove & temptation to some of Debs's followers not to be resisted, especially in view of the fact that they are not very flush Just now. For the first time since the strike opened there were several distinct notes of Im provement In the situation, and these were not conflned to Chicago. Here the postal au thorities reported a noticeable improvement in the movement of the mails. Outside of Chicago it was to be noted that the strike, while it made no progress worthy of men tion at any point, gave many evidences of having received It3 culmination and of fall ing Influence. To begin with, the promise that the seaboard trunk lines would be tied up at Buffalo was not fulfilled, and the strike was not extended to Pittsburg as was predicted, and at a number of points In the tied-up territory the strain was light ened. At one or two points men who had agreed to go out failed to do so; but, most significant of all, perhaps, was the refusal of the A. R. U. men at Louisville, Colorado Springs and Denver to obey Debs.'s order to strike. Jollet also reported a defection from the ranks there, the employes of the Joliet, Elgin & Eastern returning to work. On the other hand, the friends of-law and order had occasion to be pleased on ac count of the massing of troops here at the ordering of a decided movement of the troops by the President with a view to lifting the embargo on Tacific coast business, both by the north and central routes. To this end he ordered General Merritt, at St. Paul, and General Otis, at Vancouver barracks, to see to the opening of the Northern Pacific lines, while General Ruger, at San Francisco, and Gen eral Brooke, at Omaha, were similarly in structed to set things to moving on the Central and Union Pacific systems. To all this the only foil which the mana gers of the strike were able to show was an arrangement between President Debs and Grand Master Workman Sovereign, ut the Knights of Labor, to call out the mem bers of that organization, some 150,000, pro vided the other four members of the ex ecutive committee would agree to the order calling them out. It is estimated that Debs has now about 73,000 men, so that if the agreement goes, It will be no small addition to the forces of idleness. FIGHT AVITII A MOO. The Mlllttn. Kill nnd Wound u Num ber of Rioters. CHICAGO, July 7. The strikers and the State of Illinois came together this after noon, and a pitched battle was the result. The number of killed and wounded will never be known, as the mob carried off a number of men who were seen to fall, and whether they were dead or wounded, or how many of them fell, it is impossible at this time to ascertain. As far as known, the casualties were as follows: ' JOHN BURKE, striker, killed by a bay onet thrust through the abdomen. The wounded are: LIEUT. HARRY REED, Company F, Sec ond 'Infantry, I. N. G., struck on' the head by stone; condition critical. , THOMAS JACKMAN, shot in back; will die. JOHN KONDER, stabbed with bayonet; will die. UNKNOWN MAN, shot through liver; will die. UNKNOWN BOY, seventeen years old, shot through abdomen; will die. TONY GAJEUSKI, shot in right arm. HENRY WILLIAMS, shot in left arm. JOHN KERR, shot in hip. JOSEPH RHINEBERG, three bayonet wounds; may die. ANTON KOCMINSKI, ehot in right side. JOfcEPII SZCEPALSXI, shot in shoul der. UNKNOWN BOY, shot in left leg. ANNIE SIEGLER, bone in left leg so badly shattered that amputation was neces sary. , The fight occurred at the Intersection of Forty-ninth street and the Grand Trunk tracks, a locality -which has always had an evil name and which can produce any day two toughs for every square yard of ter ritory within a radius of a half mile. Seri ous trouble was expected here early this morning. Before 9 o'clock in the morning a mob had gathered and made threats of burning the Grand Trunk roundhouse. Aid was asked from the authorities, and Com pany F, of the Second Infantrj', thirty eight strong, commanded by Captain Kel ly, was hurried to the spot. The militia was reinforced by a number of deputies, and the xrob was pressed back from the roundhouse. The mob gathered again at Fiftieth street and began to turn over freight cars and tear up the track. A squad of police under Lieutenant Duffy attacked the mob and several shots were fired on both sides, but nobody was hurt. The mob then went back once more to Forty-ninth street, and while a portion of the crowd, which by this time was fully eight thousand strong, occupied the militia and the deputies, others ran a freight car into the pit of a turntable and made the machine useless. Superintendent Atwater and Yardmaster McKee, of the Grand Trunk, with a gang of men set to work to remove the obstruction, while the mob, which had now grown to be very ugly, stood around howling and hooting and oc casionally letting fly a stone at the soldiers. This condition of affairs prevailed for two or three hours, the militia behaving with excellent spirit and showing good discipline.. Finally the mob, encouraged by the fact tnat the troops did not fire, began active hostilities. A crowd of men pushed a freight car from a siding onto the track, where the train which had brought the militia to the scene was standing, with the evident intention of blocking the tracks so that the militia would have no line of retreat. Captain Kelly conferred with Superintendent Atwater and concluded that it was impracticable to clear the track, and that as the mob was growing wildtr every moment, the be3t thing to do was to leave the place before the strik ers proceeded to such extremes as would necessitate his opening fire on them. He accordingly detailed the half of his com pany to move the car which blocked the track on which the train was standing, a&J with the remainder held back tfce crowd which began to press closer and closer, as it saw signs of the troors mak ing a retreat. He drew his men back slowly, several times turning them to con front the crowd when it came too close. Again and again the mob, shouting, howl ing and using the vilest language, made a rush, but every time Kelly met them steadi ly with his men, and the crowd paused bo fore the threatening rifles. Finally, several toughs on the edge of the mob made a rush at Yardmaster McKee, one of them flourishing a revolver. McKee drew his own revolver and fired, but the bullet flew wide. The strikers by this time were fairly wild with rage, and brick., stones, chunks of coal and coupling pins rained around the troops. Lieutenant Reed was struck twice on the head in quick succession by stones and fell to the ground like a dead man. Kelly then concluded the time had come, and, wheeling his men quickly, gave the word to charge, and the handful of militiamen sprung forward with leveled bayonets. John Burke wa3 standing in the front of the mob throwing coal as fpt as he could move his arm. One of the first soldiers in the charge plunged his bayonet clear through his body, the point coming out at the back. Burke went down like a log and died in a few minutes. The mob broke before the charge, but quickly rallied, and after , a short pause came on again, sending a pattering of revolver bullets before It. The troops, the deputies and the police watted for no or ders, but the rifles came to a level, re volvers were drawn and a storm of lea led hall swept into the mob. Men fell right and left, but the militia and deputies and the police pressed forward, rapidly driv ing the crowd before them in the wildest confusion. It was all over in three min utes, and the militia marched into their train, and with the deputies returned to the city. They looked as though they had been through a b&ttU when they dl embarked at Dearborn Station. Their uni forms were torn, hats gone, they were covered with dust and dirt, and many of them had been badly bruised by flyinz stones. As the train withWhe militia on board moved off fully twenty thousand people crowded about the handful of police left be hind. From all sides they rushed upon them, hurling stones and iron in their mad as sault. The men, realizing their position, drew their revolvers, and backing up( against each other, prepared for a desp:r- ate battle. The crowd halted for a raorae.it and officer Ryan, breaking from the crowd, hurried toa patrol box and called the pa trol wagon. LieutenantKeleher and twelve men responded, but in the meantime the crowd had closed in again on the no.v re treating police, following them with a volley of stones. The work that had been done by the wrecking party was attacked as the police retreated. A car was set on lire, the switch close by broken, an 1 rails torn up. An alarm of fire wa3 sent In, and with it a second call for police assistance, to which Captain O'Neill and thirteen men re sponded. The condition of things was extremely critical. Loomis street, the heart of the Anarchist settlement, was crowded by a howling, shrieking mob. The patrol horses were urged through it, the crowd sullenly parting. Without flinching they clubbed their way through to their fellows, and then all started back against the crowd. At the sight of the reinforcements the crowd fell back. Each officer thought his life in danger, and without any order they raised their weapons and f.red as fast as possible directly into the crowd, which wavered, and then beat a retreat, first replying to the unexpected rain of shot with a shower of stones. As they retreated, leaving several on the ground, the police followed with clubs, showing no mercy. At every step they knocked a man down, and as they advanced the crowd showered stones on them like hall. Rushing into near by saloons the mob barricaded the door and made a stand, but were driven out through win dows and back doors like rats, clubs de scending on their heads at every jump. Windows In the hjuses adjoining were suddenly thrown open and a volley of shot was poured into the police, who returned the fire, and the mob finally scattered into alleys and side streets, ending the pur suit. The ground oer which the flht ha 1 occurred was like a battle field. The men shot by the troops and police lay about like logs. Hats kr.ocked off and coats thown oft to lesse.i weight in the fight were scattered abo it, while on the Loomis street crossing, w'aere the eight police of ficers had made their stand, were fully five hundred large stones that had been thrown by the mob. "I believe," said Superintendent Atwa ter, "that ac least a dozen men were killed. I saw men strewn all over the tracks, and they were dead men, too. The mob was not far away when we began to fire, and for about three minutes the militia, the deputies and the police, who fought like devil3, were simply pouring lead into the crowd. We were close enough and the mob was big enough, and I don't think many bullets went wile. There were more killed than we will ever know about." The statements of Superlnt:n lent At water as to the number of men shot down are upheld by the militiamen and by the deputies, many men declaring that they had seen the strikers carryinj away men who were either dead or woundrd. The Injured man whose names are rin were brought to the city by the po'ke and placed In the hospital. The report of the light oc casioned great exciten.ent at army head quarters, and the request of Pj'.Ice Inspec tor Hunt that several comp:ir.:?.i cf rerru- ' lars and a Gattling gun bo s.'nt out to the ! scene added to th feeling. The mob be- came quiet at evening, however, and the . regulars and artillery w-:re hcid r.t the de- 1 pot all night. ! When Informed of the soriDus cone- j quences f the rioting this afternoon.

This city will probably be under martial law before to morrow night. The sheriff to-night wired Governor Matthews that it wa impossible to any longer control the strikers, .and sev eral companies of militia are expected heie early to-morrow morning. The situation tc.ok a serious turn this evening, and what may happen before morning is hard U surmise. The telegraph operators of all roads in the city have been warned to keep inside their offices and give no information, uii pain of having their heads broken. Th :m i.ager of the Postal Telegraph Company has be.n chased out of town. At 9 o'clock the mob vent to the Western Union file and chased out four operators. The Michi gan Central operators and the Monon nlghl operator' had to flee for their lives. It il expected that all communication vh the city will soon be entirely cut off. ,11 p. m. it was reported that the Michigan Central operator had been caught by th mob and beaten and kicked nearly to death. At an early hour this evening the Michi gan Central attempted to nun a freight tra'n into Chicago, in charge of englneci McLean and fir.man Cooper. The traia was stopped just west of the State line and the strikers charred on the engine. The cmw, after attempting to resist th striker's", was compelled to surrender. Brakrman Hudson was badly injured ia the Kght. IL B. Miles, superintendent ct interlocking switches of the illchlg? Central, who happened to bi at the'CTit at the time, was seriously Injured ly tha mob and may d'e. , , At 11 o'clock to-night everything wai quiet, but the most conservative admit that it is only a calm before the stoma. Th action taken by the strikers iicd their sym pathizers when the Monon attempted tc run trains with Pullmans attached to night Is a fair sample of what may be ex pected. President Shields, of the locaJ American Railway Union, says lf troopi are brought it wl!l be a case of starving them out. Any person who gives or eelli them anything to eat will be spotted and dealt with accordingly. At a late hour 1o night all the employes of the George lL Hammond company struck. This meani that the main support of the town will shut down, and it looks now like tmi one else would starve besides the troops. None of the roads hs run any trains through here to-day except the Michigan Central. Monon and Erie. When the first section of train No. S. on the Monon, ar rived to-night at 8:3-, one hour ahead of time, the streets seemed to be deserted and the citizens were congratulating eae.i other over the fact that there was r.o pros pect cf any trouble to-night. The train ha 1 scarcely come to a stop before strikers b gan to flock toward the depot in drove'. No effort was made to molest this traia while it was standing at the depot, hut it had only gone a .hort distance after leav ing the slatlon before It wis stopped and an attempt made to detach the p'.ecpera. The stiikers were not successful, however, and the train continued on its way. The second section came in as eoon as the first had left, and i still hrre. This train was the Indianapolis and CiTiCiniuil fast train, and carried three Pullmans. As soon as it had stopped Kume one cut out the air on the front sleeper and the tral i was unable to proceed. By this time the crowd had swo'.itn to at lta?t iwo thou.in I and Deputy United States Marshal Scrol ler and his twenty deputies were unable to do anything toward moving the train. The train was In charge of conductor Stevens, with engine .No. 4'. An attenu t xas made by the strikers to get the engineer and fireman to desert their en gine, but without avail. After tho strikers had detached th sleepers the train pulled down the tracte a snort distance, and the Mrikers pushed the sltepers on the sid'ntr Just south ( Sibley nre-t. While this was being don-i some one in the crowd cried out 1j bun them, but cooler head prevailed, and for a time they woie saved, but It If fx pected by many that th torch will le applied before morning. There Is one car on the train with mail, tome of which is three days old now. The Krie began running train out of Chicago at noon to-day. The first to arrlva nt this noint fr: four das was the WI1 Fargo fast express, which came In at 3 o'clock this afternoon. Several more pasvi throuch durin? the afternoon, one of which was No. x, w?h two pu'imans None of these was molested by the strikers, who Rc-er-.el to tx waiting for night to come before doing Anything".
