HAMMOND. Ind., July 8.-In attempting
to move the north-bound Monon mail
train at this point this afternoon regular
soldiers were compelled to shoot Into a
crowd of strikers and their sympathizers
and the following persons wero killed and
bowels, and died Instantly.
WILLIAM CAMP HELL, shct In thigh.
VICTOR VASETER. shot in le?.
MRS. FLEMING, shot in knee.
VICTOR BITTE. shot In leg.
UNKNOWN MAN, shot through the
wrist. . .
Had the troops been at shorter range no
doubt the loss of life would have been
greater. Persons standing fully a half mile
from where the shooting was done say they
could hear the bullets flying past them. It
was learned late this evening that a girl
several blocks away had been hit by a
spent ball and quite badly Injured. Her
name could not be learned. It Is a dis
tressing fact that none of tha persons shot
were strikers, but were only onlookers.
At 10 o'clock the city Is comparatively
quiet, but the riotous spirit Is liable to
break forth at any time. The action of the
Mayor In closing ths saloons to-night has
no doubt done much good, as not an Intox
icated man can be seen on the streets.
At 10 o'clock this morning Company B,
Ffteenth Infantry, United States army,
came here from Chicago and has been here
all day. The company Is In command of
Major Hertz and Captain Hatch. The
south-bound mall train on the Monon had
been stopped about an hour previous and
the engine "killed." As soon as the troops
arrived the train was coupled up and sent
All day long the crowd had been grow
ing, until 4 o'clock this afternoon, when
the mail train from the south over the
Monon came in. The troops had gone
down the road to meet It with the special
train which had transported them 'from
Chicago. It was their Intention to escort
the mall through the city. As the special,
which was In advance of the mall train,
came around the curve about three hun
dred yards south of the deoot the crowd,
numbering at least five thousand, was
standing on the tracks. The captain of the
company motioned for the rioters to stand
back, but no heed was paid to the order.
The command was givfn to fire and the
order was Immediately obeyed. A volley
was poured Into the rioters and the men
Ml back off the right of way of the rail
road, carrying the injured.
Many threats wore made by the crowd
that the. troops would be mobbed if they
stayed here to-night, and ciles could be
heard all along the line of strikers to "Go
home and get your gun and we will give
these dogs all the shooting they want."
At 5 o'clock this afternoon ten cars
came in over the Michigan Central, brinu
ing about two hundred more soldiers. The
train also had a wrecking car attached.
The crew had been clearing up the tracks,,
which all the way from Kensington hat!
been blocked by overturned box cars. The
Mihlgan Central succeeded In removing all
obstructions by 7 o'clock and several
trains have been run out from Chicago.
As predicted in last night's dispatch, the
strikers shortly after midnight took pos
session of all the railroads running through
here. The agents were driven out of their
offices, box cars were overturned and an
attempt made to burn the three sleepers
taken off of train No. 3 on the Mcnon last
night. The first coach attacked was the
Ollnde. All the windows were broken and
tha car set on fire In two places, but It
did not burn. All the windows in the other
two cars were broken.
The mob then went to the Erie and
the Monon depots, and after driving out
the operators the buildings were saturated
with oil in several places, but from some
cause the torch "was not applied.
All the notices of the injunction ordered
by Judge Woods were next torn down and
trampled under foot. By Uils time the
crowd had swollen to a howling mob of
fully two thousand, and no attempt was
mada nor was It possible to control the
mob with the handful of United States
marshals and deputy sheriffs. Encour- 1
aged by their success thus far in their
lawless enterprise, the mot attacked the
freight cars standing on the various sid- '
ings. They first visited the G. II. Ham
mond company's yard and pulled several
cars on the main track of the Michigan :
Central and upset them.
From there they -went to the other roads
and did the same thing, and when the
people woke up this morning the town
looked as If It had been swept by a cy
clone. Daylight, had no sooner put in its
appearance before another mob of rioters
began gathering at the principal railroad
crossing-, and by 9 o'clock the crowd had
reached nearly a thousand. About this
time the south-bound mail train on the
Monon arrived and was soon disposed of.
About an hour later the first company of
soldiers put in their appearance and drew
in line all along the mall train. A guard
was placed around the train and a detach
ment sent to look after tjie head engine.
Soon as enough steam "wls up the train
pulled out. From that time until 3:30
o'clock this afternoon the troops were sub
jected to all kinds of insults from the
mob. but no attention was paid to them
except to now and then, drive the mob
back at the point of bayonets "whenever
they would press up too close.
No violence was attempted until the mall
train from the south was due, when the
mob started to overturn a Pullman on the
track. The soldiers were then just round
ing the bend, and, seeing what was being
done, the commander gave his orders to
make ready to fire. After warning the
mob the order was given to fire, and the
troops who were on the engine obeyed.
Altogether about twenty shots were fired,
and it is surprising that r.o more were In
jured than were. The tracks were packed
with people from Sibley street to State.
To-night Mayor Reilly has issued an or
der for all saloons to close and remain
closed until to-raorrow morning. There is
some talk of putting the city under mar
tial law, but it has not yet been done.
An Impromptu meeting of the citizens was
held in Germanla Hall this evening, which
was addressed by many of the leading cit
izens. Among the speakers was Rev Fath
er Plaster, to whose congregation many of
the strikers belong. He counseled the cit
izens to go to their homes and not congre
gate on the streets to-night. A committee
was appointed to draw up resolutions con
demning , the actions of the soldiers this
afternoon, these resolutions to be sent to
Governor Matthews and Congressman Ham
mond. '
An order has been given out for every
laboring man in the city to go out to-morrow
morning. This means that the Lake
side nail mills, the Tuttle spring works and
many smaller concerns will shut down and
thousands of men will be out of work for
some time. It is understood that this order
includes the employes of the Chicago rolling
mlll3, the Famous Manufacturing Company
and the Grasselll Chemical Company, of
East Chicago, and the Standard Oil Com
pany, of Whiting. The last named com
pany employes about two thousand men,
and is the support of that place.
A report reached here late to-night that
Governor Matthews had ordered out six
hundred of the State militia to this point,
and that they left Fort Wayne this morn
ing, but were laid up at Argus on account
of the engineers refusing to pull the train
because of a "scab" fireman being sent out
with him to fire his engine. If this report
be true they will probably reach here to
morrow. In an Interview with lieutenant Tagne,
of The United States troops, to-night, he
said that all of the officers In command had
received orders before they left headquar
ters to protect property at all hazards;
that if any of the rioters were found ob
structing the passage of trains or In any
way destroying property, to fire on them,
and shoot to kill. That the officer in com
mand of the troops who did the firing to
day was but obeying the command of his
superior officers, and that It was a wonder
that no one else wa3 killed.
At a late hour to-night all Is quiet, al
though several groups of rioters have
made threatening demonstrations at differ
ent points about the city during the even
ing. The officers commanding the United
States forces made public to-night the fol
lowing telegram received by him from Gen.
Miles this afternoon:
"Commanding Officer of United States
Troops General Schonell wires that) Gov
ernor Matthew?, of Indiana, his asked. th?
President that three companies of United
States troons be sent to Hammond to dis
perse the mob of rioters. This makes your
duty and that of the troops plain. You
are directed to fire on anj- mob or any men
obstructing lines of road, and hold the
place until further orders. By command of
Engineer McLean and fireman Cooper, of
the Michigan Central, who were dragged
from their engines and brutally beaten by
the mob last night, are in a serious condi
tion and not expected to recover. II." 13.
Miles, superintendent of the interlocking
system, who was badly Injured in this
morning's row, will recover.
Moli Arum Kmelf to Attack the I'nitcil
Mate Troop.
Associated Press Dispatch.
CHICAGO. July 8. The rioting at Ham
mond, Ind., culminated this afternoon in a
conflict between the mob and Company B,
Fifteenth United States Infantry, in which
Charles Fleischer, a laborer, was killed,
Victor Vaseter fatally wounded, and Wil
liam Campbell shot through both legs. A
number of other people were slightly In
jured, but were carried away by their
friends and secreted, and It will be Impos
sible to learr the exact number wounded.
The trouble began last night when the
Michigan Central train crews were hauled
from engines and beaten, switchman
Miles fatally pounded und telegraph oper
ators driven from the offices. The rioters
kept their work up all night, burning cars
and diiablins engines. Thi3 morning they
burned a Pullman car. Most of this work
wa3 done inside of the Illinois State line,
and a3 soon as the Illinois militia arrived
on the scene the mob retired Into Indiana
and Jeered at the troops. About 9 o'clock
this morning a great crowd gathered again
about the Monon depot. Several freight
cars were overturned and the Michigan
Central tracks blockaded. The sheriffs dep
uties and the marshals were powerless to
restrain the mob, and as there was no hope
of the Indiana militia arriving before late
this evening an appeal was made to the
federal authorities in Chicago. Company B,
of the Fifteenth Infantry, thirty-five men,
was sent out at once. The troops were sta
tioned about the Monon depot, as that
seemed to be the center of the attack, and
their presence quieted things for a while
and the blockade on the tracks was finally
raised at 1 o'clock in the afternoon and sev
eral passenger trains pulled through. This
seemed to anger the mob, and with an in
crease of number Its passions grew to a
frenzy. The regulars were greeted with
baths and shouts of derision, and volleys
of sticks and stones were showered on
them. The men stood their ground, how
ever, and kept the mob for several hours
from approaching the buildings. By 3
o'clock fully five thousand rioters were as
sembled. They had been arcused by their
leaders to a frenzy that made an encounter
with the soldiers certain. Several times they
rushed on the company of troops, but were
met by fixed bayonets and driven back. At
last, however, the entire body of strikers
made a determined rush toward the spot.
"Make ready! Fire!" was the command,
and the thirty-five Springfields rang out
in response, quickly followed by a second
volley. The first volley staggered the riot
ers and the second stopped them as effectu
ally as if they had run against a stone wall.
Several men were seen to fall, but they
were taken away by their comrades, and
the extent of their injuries could not be
learned. Fleischer fell in the front rank of
the rioters. He was taken to the hospital,
where he died in a short time. In the rush
that followed scores of women and chil
dren were trampled and a ha'f dozen women
fainted on the tracks. The soldiers then
took up a position on the track at tne
Russell-street crossing.
The news of the killing spread with re
markable rapidity, and ten minutes after
wards the streets in the vicinity were filled
with a threatening mob. Major Hartz left
his company for a few moments to assist
the firemen and doctors in placing Vaseter
in the patrol wagon, and was immediately
surrounded by a crowd.
"Kill him!" "Shoot him down!" were the
cries of the excited men, as the mob Eurged
around the Major. Hartz, however, did not
pay any attention to them, and was not
The excitement by this time was intense.
Men ran from house to house, borrowing
shotguns, rifles and other firearms. "To
arms!" was the cry heard on every side,
and fully three thousand people responded.
Matters looked so threatening that a call
was sent to Chicago for reinforcements and
two more companies were sent out on a
special train. These additional troops were
stationed at the scene of the trouble, and
effectually cowed the rioters for the time
Major Hartz arrested four of the leaders
of the mob and took them to Chicago with
a small detail Of troops. While the train
was pulling out of the city a crowd
gathered and stoned it, but quickly dis
persed on the approach of a company of
A special train on the Monon arrived late
to-night from Hammond, bearing a detail
of United States Infantry, "under command
of Major Hartz, having in custody four of
the ring leaders in this afternoon's disor
ders there. Major Hartz was seen on ar
rival by an Associated Press representa
tive and spoke very tersely of the trouble,
observing very significantly in conclusion:
"Things have quieted down somewhat at
Hammond since the trouble this afternoon."
In reply to inquiries. Major Hartz said:
"We succeeded in moving mail trains w hich
were being held by rioters at Hammond. In
moving one train we were confronted by a
gang who lined up in a solid mass in front
of the engine. They were warned to make
way, but no attention was paid to the ad
monition, and we gave it to them. One man
was killed so far as I know, and four or
more wounded; how badly I am not in
formed." When asked for further information, the
Major referred all questioners to depart
. ment head quarters.

WABASH, Ind., July 8. The officials of
the Big Four and Wabash railroads are
making desperate effoits to run passenger
trains, and excitement late last night ran
higher than at any time since the begin
ning of the strike here. The north-bounl
express on the Big Four got into Wabash
seven hours late in charge of Elijah Roda
baugh, a brotherhood engineer. About the
same time No. 7 south-bound and two
hours late, arrived. The streets were
densely crowdel with strikers and their
friends, and as the train pulled in women
and girls surrounded the engine, yelled
"scab" and roundlv abused the englnemen.
The fireman of the south-bound train was
pulled off the engine and run up to the A.
R. U. hall, where the strikers labored
with him. He Is a stranger, employed at
the Benton Harbor roundhouse and twice
returned to his engine and was- persuaded
not to go on. He finally said he would re
main with his engine until he reached An
derson and would then quit. Women
grasped him by the arms and walked him
away, begging him not to run, but he was
inflexible and got away on the train at
midnight. The special passenger train als-j
went south, being held here six hours
afUr it was made up. The strikers thought
Master Mechanic Doebler intended firing
it after a half dozen firemen had refuel
to go. Doebler shoveled cnal until the
yard limits were reached. where Cal
Jones, who had been secreted, rushed out,
got on the enelne, DoeMer got off. and th
train proceeded.

after a full discussion In the Cabinet meet

it will give him more ample authority in
the city. None of the Cabinet officials

from the War Department to General

measure, to interpret the intention of the
President's action:
