REPORTS FROM THE FIELD Local Artillery Section Dis patched on a Special Train. Aid Offered the Governor from All Tarts of the State Old Soldfers Meet Hero This Evening. LOCAL LABOR SITUATION Engincers'Indorse the Loyalty of Brotherhood to Contract. Marshal Hawkins's Dispatehes Indicate Kerions Conditions in Several Tarts of the State No Local Trouble. While the trouble at Chicago and Ham mond was almost the sole topic of con versation here yesterday, the Sunday was a quiet one In the main. There was some very natural excitement over the situation and a widespread interest In ascertaining how matters were progressing at the scene of the difficulties. Rumors of possible strikes among the labor unions here were heard, but they all proved unfounded, and were due to utterances of some of the local agitators. The latter were not numerous nor were they at all vociferous, and the sentiment everywhere waa strongly In favor of law and order. Expressions could be heard on all sides to the effect that lawless ness must be suppressed at any cost. Grand Army men were busy arranging for their law and order meeting to-night, and ten ders of assistance voured in upon the Gov ernor from organizations and citizens who are determined to see national and State authority upheld. The departure of a section of the ar tillery with a Catling gun for Hammond attracted many people to the Union Sta tion in the afternoon, and the soldiers were cheered as their train pulled out for the front. The Statehouse was an unusually busy point, though It was, as usual, closed to all excepting those who had business there. The offices of the Governor and Adjutant general were open all day, and that of the latter official all night. Governor Matthews remained until evening in his office, and his private secretary, Myron D. King, was there until midnight. Major T. M. Defrees was in charge of the Adjutant-general's office after the departure of the latter with the artillery section, and he remained there all night. A Western Union wire was run in and telegrams received and sent direct from the office. About the hotel lobbies groups of men could be found at all hours discussing the situation, and frequently some one could be heard relating his experience in the big railroad blockade or at Chicago during some of the skirmishes of the pa.9t few days In that city. It was the unanimous opinion of well-informed men la all sta tions who had made a careful study of labor problems as they affect Indianapolis that there would be no trouble of a serious 'character here. Too many of the em ployes of railroads and other companies own their homes to permit of other than a conservative course to be taken by them. This, they all agreed, is to the everlasting credit of the city. There was absolutely no trouble of any character reported dur ing the day or night, nor was any ex pected. The purchase of rations for eight hundred men for four days is a matter of some mo ment. Very little time was wasted yester day In laying in these rations and they were sent to the train in big transfer wag ons which the soldiers unloaded into the four Lake Erie & Western baggage cars. There were cases of tinned beef, canned corn and various other vegetables, pick axes, shovels and axes in plenty. Tents for eight hundred men were taken from here. Forty rounds of ammunition for each man, or about thirty thousand rounds in all formed a portion of the supplies. As there are in the Indiana Legion 2,455 officers and men. the force sent to Ham mond compromises about one-third of its strength. The Governor believes that the presence of a large force often has the salutary effect of putting a stop to lawless ness without the necessity of using more heroic measures. The militiamen and fed eral troops, he says, will work together, the former for the protection of the lives and property of citizens, and the latter for the moving of railroad trains and the mails. Seven of the companies met the Indian apolis command at Itochester, alout 11:3') last night, while the others joined forces at Griffiths, a station ju?t east of Ham mond, and the point agrfeil upon for mob ilizing the troors. The plan was to wait at this point until all the companies arrived, ami then to march into Hammond and go into camp or on duty if the services of the militiamen were immediately n"?dM. At 1 o'clock this morning Major Defrees received a telejrram that between six and seven hundred troops had arrived at Crown Point and would proceed at once to Griffith), where the remaining companies are. There they will remain until day light, when they will march into Ham mond. Major Defrees received a telegram at 11:10 last night from Capt. Hush G. Prown, of the Twelfth United St.Ur-s In fantrv, at Hammond, stating that the railroads were all clear there and that everything was quiet. Troop Ordered Oat. Adjutant-general Itobblns, early yester day morning, received Instructions from Governor Matthews to order out sixteen companies, Including a section of artillery, and start them for Hammond without de lay. Being Sunday, It was difficult, in some Instances, to get word to company com manders. Some of the telegraph offices were closed and the dispatches had to be sent through the railroad offices. In spite of the difficulties, however, the work was accomplished speedily and replies soon re ceived from all the companies that they would get under way at one?. In all, 790 men aYe in the Held as a result of the Governor's order, and this morning they are in camp at Hammond. The com panies ordered out are as follows: Second Hegiment. Maj. E. 1. Thayer, of Grfenlield, in Command x'ompany It. of Rochester, fifty men. Captain A. H. Skin Mfr: Company F, of Klwood. fifty men. Capt. V. F. Vanarsdel; Company H. of Knox, fifty men. Capt. A. H.

Charles L. No lan; Company D, of Wabash, fiftv m n, Capt. E. M. Tolan; Company H. of War saw, fif ty-sflx men, Capt. L. E. Harter. Total. C men. The only soldiers to go up from this city were fifteen men in charge of the Gatling gun of Company A, Light Artillery. This command was in charge of First Lieut. Dan A. Thompson, who looked the typical campaigner, with his bronzed face and his big gray slouch hat. While the drill squad of thl3 famous organization Is on its way home from Little Hock, its brows bound with victorious wreaths, so to speak, and that fiy purse in its pockets, the other section is seeking new laurels on the field of action. E. S. K. Seguin, adjutant of the Second Itegiment, and Major William M. Wright, medical director of the First Pri gade, accompanied the ISattery A boys. The latter had his case of surgical instru ments and a full ocmplement of medicine. Adjutant-general Robbins also went with the boys and assumes command of the troops at Hammond. THE GOVEIlXOIt WIIIKS ALTGKLD. Executives Arrnnge for Troops Cross ing the Line. Mayor Hopkins, of Chicago, telegraphed Governor Matthews, yesterday, asking his permission for Illinois troops to fire Inside the Indiana line at Hammond and else where. The Governor replied that he did not think the request should come from the Mayor, but that it must come from Governor Altgeld. Nothing further was heard from Mayor Hopkins on the subject which has been engrossing the attention of Indiana's executive.- Shortly after this General Superintendent Miller, of the Panhandle, telephoned from the Denlson Hotel, asking what was to be done about the matter of troops crossing the State line. The Governor replied that he was Just about to wire Governor Alt geld, suggesting the propriety of co-operation in the matter of troops and urging that in case of emergency the State line be ignored. . , Immediately afterwards, at 3:30 o'clock, the Governor sent the following telegram to Governor Altgeld at Springfield, 111.: "I have found it necessary to order State troops to Hammond. Owing to the peculiar situation there, the State line dividing the town, I believe it would be well to have our respective forces co-operate In suppress ing lawlessness at that point. To accom plish this I suggest that we each accord to the other the right, if it should be necessary nnd best, to permit troops to cross the line, and In all respects aid in establishing peace and order. You con senting, construe this into a like consent on my part." Governor Altgeld's reply, which was re ceived at 9:30 last night, is as follows: "I heartily approve of your suggestion and our troops will act in the most friend ly accord with yours. Mayor Hopkins has already Informed me of your consideration and forethought and the Illinois troops have been directed to go into Indiana whenever it is, deemed necessary to com pletely suppress lawlessness, enforce the law, maintain Order in Illinois, and your troops will, of course, come into Illinois at any point when It is deemed necessary to have them do so for the purpose of upholding the laws and maintaining order In the State of Indiana." Maj-or Hopkins, of Chicago, also tele graphed Governor Matthews to the effect that he had received word from Governor Altgeld concerning the communication re garding the State line and desired to thank , Indiana's executive for so promptly acting upon an important matter. STATE LIXC Ql'ESTIOX. Federal Official AVnnteil Militia Tnt In the Federal Service. At the conference between Governor Mat thews and the federal officials, which lasted until the early hours ye.-terday morning, the State line question as it affected Ham mond, was the chief topic of discussion. That State troops must be sent to that point without further delay was obvious to all parties, and the talk was directed main ly as to how to solve the State-line problem. The federal officials first suggested that President Cleveland issue the call for the State militia, and In that way place them under the control of the government with the same power3 possessed by federal troops. In that way they could cross the Illinois line without violating the State's constitutional provision. Thl3 proposition was combated by Governor Matthews, who urged that if the control of the troops were taken from the State and vested In the federal authorities the soldiers could be marched as far into Illinois as the latter wished, and. possibly, they miht be with drawn from a point needing protection when there were no other troops to take their place. The Indiana Lesion was com paratively small in point of numbers, he said, and the State government could scarcely afford to let the troops get away from its jurisdiction. Then it was proposed by the federal offi ciate that the militiamen be sworn in as deputy United States marshals in order to give them authority to cross the Illinois line at Hammond, should it become neces sary to do so at any time to prevent depre dations. The Governor also opposed this, as it would, In a measure, tend also to di vide the authority of the troops. He be lieved that Governor Altgeld would co operate with him In the matter of permit ting the troops of either State to enter the other whenever the necessity for such en trance arose. After a long argument over the matter the Governor convinced his con ferees, that his view was correct and that the best thing to do wa3 to ask that sev eral companies of federal troops be sent to Hammond at once pending the arrival of the State militia at that point. It was also urged, as advisable that a small force of regulars remain at Hammond to co operate with the State troops upon their arrival there. A telegram was sent to United States Attorney-general Olney, signed by Judge Haker, District Attornev Ilurke and Marshal Hawkins, to the effect that lawlessness was prevalent at Ham mond, and that while the Indiana troops might prevent depredations In the Indiana portion of the town they would be power less to do so In the Illinois part. The order for troop would have been is sued by the Governor Saturday had not the telegrams from both Sheriff Frederick and Judge Field, general counsel of the Monon road, been of the most reassuring character. As late as 3 o'clock that after noon he received dispatches from both offi cials stating that everything was quiet, and that trains were being moved all right. It was the calm before the storm, and they were deceived by the passive attitude of the strikers. The Governor did nothing more toward issuing the order for the militia to get under way, and went home only to be deluged with telegrams a few hours later of the alarming outbreak at Hammond. He telephoned Marshal Hawkins, and was then urged to meet that official and District Attorney JJurke at Judge Uaker's room in the Denlson Hotel, which he did, with the result above stated. WA S II I X GTO.V CO II H KS 1'OX DRXCR. Governor Call for Hesrulnr Troop lleferreil to General Miles. In accordance with the action of the conference the preceding night Governor Matthews, at 10 o'clock yesterday morn ing, sent the following telegram to Presi dent Cleveland at Washington: "Sine? Judge Daker, District Attorney Burke and Marshal Hawkins wired Attorney-general situation at Hammond grows more alarming. Mail trains are held and all traffic stopped. The town in control of mob and overrun by desperate characters from Chicago. Available State troops will soon be on tha way to Hammond. Other points In the State in dangerous condition. It is absolutely necessary that at least three companies of United States troops be ordered to that point without delay. Will use every means at my command and co-operate with government troops." The following answer, sent at 4 p. ni., from WashlnKton. was received by the Governor late yesterday afternoon, signed by Daniel S. Iimont, Secretary of War: "Your telegram of this date addtessed to the President has been referred to Major General Miles, commanding Department of tha Missouri, headquarters at Cnicago. who has full authority to act in the premises. Please communicate with him at that place." Prior to receiving Secretary Umont's telegram Superintendent J. F. Miller, of the Panhandle, .telegraphed the Governor that he had unofficial information of the arrival at Hammond of two companies of federal troops. The Governor thinks that, quite possibly, this was the result of his telegram to the President, which he sup poses r:as repeated to General Miles at Chicago as soon as received at the White House. THE AHTILLEHV LEAVES. GntlliiK Gun Section, I'nder Lieut. Thompson, Goes to Hum moml. A section of the Light Artillery, consist ing of fifteen men. left for Hammond by special train over the L. E. & W. at 3:13 yesterday afternon in command of Lieut. Dan Thompson. Early in the afternoon a train of three baggage cars and a day coach was run upon a side track west of Capitol avenue and loaded with tents, blankets, lamps and various other camp paraphernalia. There was . a lively scene about the old Vandalla freight depot. Hun dreds of people congregated upon the street and watched the busy preparation for departure to the scene of the riots. A doren members of an Infantry company patrolled to and fro as a guard to prevent the crowd from surging for-.vard and im peding the progress of the work. The battery boys worked Industriously loading their munitions of war. The Catling gun was run down and yanked. on to a coal car in a few seconds. Then the members of the gun section mounted the car. It was backed down and coupled to the baggage car and the train pulled through the Union Station with a soldier on either side of the engine pilot, with gun resting between the bars of the pilot. Dr. Wright, superintendent of the City Hospital, ac companied the battery as surgeon. The departure of the soldiers was the subject of general conversation about the station, and the comments that were made were varying. While one person was "ex pressing satisfaction at the departure, an other immediately behind him was express ing condemnation, and one man. empha sizing his statement with an oath, wished that every one of the soldiers be brought back in a box. CIVIL "WAR II V A 3IOB. Sheriff Frederleli Alnrmlng Mes nnKC to the Governor. After being up nearly all night Governor Matthews was at his office in good season yesterday morning. The first telegram he opened was from Sheriff Frederichs, of Lake county, and it read as follows: "United States marshal saved; they are In bed. Send militia to get them home. Everything else wrecked. About twenty eight box cars turned over across the tracks. One Pullman car burned: two with windows all smashed. On the Monon every telegraph operator driven from bis office. Employes pounded. I was powerless to stop the rioting, which I have told all along. There will be no danger now in the daytime, but look out for breakers at night. I have been up all night, and am going to bed." Then came a message from W. H. Mc Doel, general manager of the Monon, In forming him that two trains of that line were In the hands of the Hammond mob, and asking when the troops promised might be expected. Winston Si Meagher, of Chi cago, attorneys for the Michigan Central Railroad Company, then wired to know If any steps had been taken to furnish mili tary aid and urging that troops be sent to Hammond at once. The telegram stated that the Michigan Central mail trains were all held up by the mob and travel suspend ed, and the situation au described In the morning papers was briefly recited. At noon came a long message from E. St. John, chairman of the General Man agers' Association at Chicago, to the sama purport, and A. M. Tucker, general mana ger of the Chicago & Erie road, sent a message containing similar information. Sheriff Frederichs wired the following brief but comprehensive message to the Governor: "There is no strike here. This is a civil war by a mob' To all these telegrams Governor Mat thews responded with ths assurance that the Indiana troops had been ordered out and would soon be on their way. At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon the Governor telegraphed the following mes sage to Mayor Iteilley, of Hammond: "Troops are now on their way to your city. They go to assist the authorities to restore order and enforce law". I trust their mission may be peaceably performed It will not be their fault If otherwise. I would suggest and request that you im mediately issue a proclamation to your citizens to abstain from collecting In crowds on the streets or about the rail roads, and especially that women and children be warned of the danger should a mob resist the authority of law." To this telegram the Governor, at 7:20 last evening, received the following unique reply from Mayor Reilly: "Your message has been received and complied with, and, furthermore, they have shot down Innocent people on the street, which I think is unnecessary. Is our city under martial law? United States deputies are useless. No one to act but myself and eight policemen." Judg E. C. Field, general counsel for the Monon Railroad Company, telegraphed Governor Matthews from Englewood, III., at 7:30 last evening, as follows: "I have spent day at Hammond. Destruc tion of property gTent sad .fears enter tained lhat mob wilh burn all railroad property to-nlgrht. A company of United States troops passed our mail trains to day, but was obliged to fire on the mob." The Governor received a telegram from Sheriff Friederich, at Crown Point, last night, that he had been up three days and two nights, and must Ret pome sleep; that his deputy. Maynard, had full author ity to act, and that he would return to Hammond to-day. MESSAGES FHOM DEPUTIES. Nltiiftt Ion A 1 n nil Ini; in Severnl fluees The Klot ut Hammond. Yesterday was a busy day at the federal war headquarters. Telegrams bearing in fotmation of a hostile nature began to flow In to the United States marshal at an early hour. The first startling news arrived at noon yesterday from Hammond, to the effect that Monon train No. 5 was in the hands of the mob. Quickly following this came the message that the Illinois militia had been driven back, the Pullman cars upset and that the engineer and fireman had abandoned, the engine. This news was not reassuring, and the marshal was not in a particularly happy frame of mind when he was informed that Deputy Roberts had arrested a str:et-car employe named Bow ser at Fort Wayne for assault on one of th3 government's deputies. The marshal was preparing to issue Instructions for the detention of Dowser when he was appealed to by the manager of the Fort Wayne & Chicago railway. The manager was decid edly, uneasy, and Implored the marshal to refrain from further prosecution of Dow ser as he understood his detention would precipitate a general riot among the strik ers and street-car men. Marshal Hawkins was a pretty angry maii after the perusal of this telegram, and he promptly wired deputy Roberts to hold on to his man. Later he instructed him to see that the bond was made a good, stiff one, and If the prisoner failed to furnish it to send him to Indianapolis. "I don't propose to have my men beat up by these fellows and let them get away, said the marshal. "I expect to get ev?ry one of those men Who assaulted Harry Ryan if such a thing Is possible." He learned yesterday afternoon that liowser had given bond in th? sum of JGC0. Deputy Marshal Agnew wired from Gar rett, yesterday evening, that the situation there was growing worse every , hour. He had succeeded in starting one freight train, but the strikers were threatening to stone the fireman. At Ashley, a small station on the Wabash road, the situation was re ported as dangerous all day yesterday. At 7 o'clock last night deputy Fletcher, who is stationed there, telegraphed Marshal Hawkins that the situation was extremely critical. The marshal at once sacured the services of thirty-five deputies and sent them to Ashley by special train.1 The forces left at H o'clock fh charge of de tective Jeffreys, of the Rig Four. One of the least reassuring telegrams received dur ing the day came from the U. & O. offi cials, stating that their men were to strike at S o'clock last night. Advices to the marshal from Fort Wayne, yesterday even ing, were to the effect that all was quiet, and that deputy Ryan, who was brutally assaulted Saturday, was Improving. A message received from deputy Scooler, at Hammond, at 4:2) o'clock yesterday, had the effect of quieting the fears of the forces at headquarters. The d?puty stated that the United States troops had arrived from Chicago, and that they had moved two Monon trains. The message said that there was intense excitement, but that no trouble was -anticipated before night. In less than an hour the officials about the office were again thrown into a flurry by another message from deputy Scooler an nouncing that the troops had Just fired on the mob and that two had been killed. Marshal Hawkins grew alarmed for the safety of his handful of men at Ham mond, and wired their leader to act coolly and conservatively. Since the strike began at this point the marshal has enlisted over three hundred men in the service of the government. He says the railroad compa nies furnl.h them transportation and sul sistence while on duty outside of the city, JtST RECEIVING SM1YTI1Y. Outsider nt A. II. V Hendqunrtern lleer Driver Contribute. The local lodge A. R. U. met yesterday In committee of the whole. The meeting partook of an Informal discussion of the strike by the members s they dropped 1 Into headquarters. During the day a large number of the members called at the hall, but as they were continually passing in and out there was not a large number of them present at any one time. The topic of rioting and shooting wai a forbidden subject In the hall, and was not brought lata the discussion even Incidentally. Out side the hall several of the members did not refrain from expressing their opinion upon it, but it was not broached in the room. The press committee of the lodge gave out the Information that the crievance committee of the L. & N. system had called upon the lode and gave expression to hearty sympathy with the strike. The grievance committee promised a more prac tical and positive assurance than promises within a few days at the furthest. The committeemen assured the local members that within a day or two the L. & N. sys tem would be tied up, and said that the Southern roads generally were in sympathy with the strike and would all be tied up if it became necessary. The press agent claimed that a committee from the Broth erhood of Locomotive Engineers also called to give assurance of the sympathy of that order with the strike, and accompanied the expression of sympathy with the dona tion of a substantial sum to assist In the continuance of the strike. The amount do nated by the engineers was not given out by the press committee. The Deer Drivers' Union of this city also sent a contribution of $50 to the union to aid in continuing the strike. During the day a number of new members were taken into the union from the St. Louis division of the Big Four. This division of the road was, a few days ago, almost practically tied up, and the members of the American Railway Union claim that they are now able to completely tie it up again. This accession of membership to the order from that division Is taken as an evidence of the intention of the order to tie up the division as soon as they have members sufficient upon it. At 4 o'clock a telegram was received from Debs in which he said the outlook for a victory was more favorable than ever before and encouraged the local union to hold out. He added that the prospects were brightening every hour. During the afternoon five hundred coptes of the Chi cago Times were received and put on sale upon the streets at a penny each. The pro ceeds of the sale are to be put in the fund for the benefit of the strikers. The papers sold readily among the strikers. Committees from Wabash, Anderson, Kankakee and Urbana visited the head quarters to get encouragement, and from statements by members of the union it would seem that they got it in abundance. The Anderson committee said the women were on a strike there and urging the men to stay out. It was rumored upon the street last night that the machinists, with several other unions, would walk out on a strike to-day. This rumor was probably as foundationless as many of the other ru mors that have been circulated since the strike begun. John Greig, of the machin ists, said there was no truth in the rumor as far as he was concerned. Members of the saw-makers, paperhangers and several other unions said there was no intention on the part of their respective unions entering the strike. A number of them expressed sympathy with the strikers, but failed to see how it would benefit the cause for unions not connected with railroads to go out. ENGINEERS TAKE ACTION. Division o, 11 Approve Loyalty to the Mouon Contract. Division No. 11 of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, with headquarters In this city, has taken positive steps against any participation in the Debs strike. This division is the third largest in the order and has always been con sidered a conservative division. It held a meeting yesterday afternoon and thorough ly discussed the situation. As a conclu sion the division adopted the following res olutlons unanimously: "Resolved, That this division indorse the action of brother C. F. Craig, chairman of the grievance committee on the Monon road in advising the engineers of that system to remain with their engines and not violate their contract with the com pany." D. A. Byers is chief engineer of the di vision and William Blythe secretary. The meeting was largely attended and the fact that the resolution was passed unanimous ly goes a great way to show the feeling of the engineers on the trouble. OFFERS FROM ALL SIDES. Patriarch Militant Hold Themnel ves In Readlne for State Service. W. W. Canada, brigadier general com manding the Patriarchs Militant of the I. O. O. F. of Indiana telegraphed the Gov ernor from Winchester last night as fol lows: "I hereby tender to the State, to aid In restoring peace within her borders, six regiments of the Patriarchs Militant I. O. O. F constituting the department of In diana. They are well drilled and we await your orders." Geo. w. II. Kemper," of Muncle, formerly assistant surgeon Seventeenth Indiana Vol unteers, also telegraphed the Governor as follows: "Commond ma for any medical service with militia." . Governor Matthews expressed himself as much gratified at the loyal proffers that are coming in from all sides. He says that during Saturday and yesterday many Grand Army posts and other organizations, as well as numerous citizens, had wired him offers of assistance In maintaining the supremacy of the law. Several citi zens proposed that they raise companies to enter the field, and all declared them selves as ready to go to the front at any time. One noticeable feature of the departure of the artillery yesterday afternooon was the expression on all sides of the belief that the only way to suppress rioting and lawlessness was to send troops to the scene as soon as possible. There seemed to be no other sentiment among the crowd that gathered to see the train pull out. OLD SOLDIERS TO 3IEET. They "Will Take Action "by Resolu tion und Otherwise' To-Mht. An open meeting has been arranged for to-night at Grand Army Hall of all mem bers of that organization and other old soldiers, to take action indicative of their readiness to support law and order. This meeting Is expected to be a very large one and to voice a healthy sentiment known to exist In Indianapolis against the lawless ness now prevalent at Chicago, Hammond and elsewhere. Prominent members of the Grand Army posts here were busy yester day arranging for this meeting. Following is the official call for it: "To All Comrades of the Grand Army and ex-Union Soldiers: "You are requested to assemble at G. A. R. Hall, on Delaware street, opposite the courthouse, to-night, at 8 o'clock, to take action, by resolution and otherwise, to show our loyalty to law and constituted authority, and to aid, if need be, in the maintenance of law and order." This was signed by Zach F. Lander, com mander Anderson Post: D. R. Lucas, com mander George H. Thomas Post; James Dunn, commander Chapman Post; H. J. Pontius, commander Phil Sheridan Post; John W. Scott, commander Joseph R. Gor don Post; D. X. Huey, commander John F. Ruckle Post; I. R. Miller, commander Alvin P. Hovey Post: C. W. Conrad, commander Major Gordon Post; Wm. 11. Johnson, com mander Martin Delaney Post; X. R. Ruckle, James R. Carnahan, Wm. H. Arm strong. J. M. Paver, John J. Langdon, Jo seph R. Perry. SHIELDS' SUI1LIME NERVE. He "Wire the Governor nnd Asks State Protection. Alexander Shields, president of the Ham mond lodge of the American Railway Union, who is under bond to keep the peace, telegraphed the Governor at C:30 last evening as follows: "United States regulars shooting down citizens, apparently without provocation. Cannot we have State protection? Several citizens shot already. Something must be done at once. Will rely on your discre tion." This message was signed by Shields and "Dr. T. E. Hell." The Governor wired the following reply: "Have sent State troops to restor? order, enforce law and protect the lives of law abiding citizens. Lawlessness and rioting must be suppressed. Citizens obeying law have nothing to faar. Resistance to national or State authority must be punished. It will lx? a matter of extreme regret should Inoffensive citizens suffer. It is the duty of the good citizens of Hammond to assist in speedily restoring that i?ace and quiet which ren ders unnecessary interferance by national or State authority. Give to them your as sistance." A RIG FOl' II III M OR. Report That Men on St. Loul Divi sion Are Golittf Out. Members of the American Railway Union announced at 11 o'clock last night that the employes of the St. Louis division of the Rig Four had gone out again. The Amer ican Railway Union men claimed that the Big Four men only went to work last week on the strength of a bogus telegram. Superintendent Van Winkle was at Mat toon last night and passed through In dianapolis on his way to Cincinnati The clerk In charge of th5 Big Four telegraph offices here claimed that he had not hrrd of the strike, but admitted that the Mat toon employes were having an all-night session. NOT EVEN A FOOTPRINT. A Sqnnd of Police Found Not li luff nt the Hominy Mill. Yesterday was a quiet day for the police. There were but two calls for officers. At 9 o'clock a report was received that a large number of men, supposed to be strikers, were on the J., M. & I. tracks, and were moving southward to the hominy mills near Lincoln lane. It was also reported that the strikers seemed demonstrative. Four pa trolmen, under charge of officer Fickle, were hurriedly sent to the place, but to usa the language of the patrolmen's report, "not even a foot print was found." At 2 o'clock In the afternoon ten men, under Captain Campbell, were sent to the Union Station to guard the special train on the L. E. & W., bearing the militia ordered out for Hammond. There was no trouble. DARLINGTON'S MOVA11LE ARSENAL. Train Fitted lp with "Winchester nnd Manned by Determined Men. Superintendent Darlington, of the Penn sylvania Company, Is fully prepared for any emergency that may arise in this city. While he does not anticipate that his extraordinary precautions will be necessary, he has taken them to afford absolute safety. He has a rolling arsenal at the Union Station garrisoned by a num ber of special deputies picked by the com pany and paid by It. Darlington's arsenal is a baggage car and switch engine. Both the engineer and fireman are armed to the teeth in order that they may be able to defend themselves In case of attack, or outbreak anywhere. The baggage caf is supplied with a full equipment of tools of war of the very best pattern. It is armed with Wincnester rines. revolvers and a plentiful supply of ammunition, suf ficient to last the men for a long and hard fought battle should one become necessary. This engine is kept at the Union Station night and day ready to go to any part of the city upon a moment's warning and carry right to the scene of any trouble a force of armed men with courage to face any crowd of rioters that may present themselves. The men assigned to the car are men who have been accustomed to struggle with men. They are men who have served as officers of the law in various capacities and are cool and determined. Some of them are regularly In the employ of the company and have been for years. It was the presence of this engine at the station Saturday, afternoon that enabled Super intendent Darlington to go at ence to the hominy mills when a crowd had captured and were attempting to "kill" an engine at that place. A Hnmor About the Van. One of the many vague rumors flying around the city yesterday had it that, to day, the Vandalla would dismiss a .num ber of its trainmen on account of the slack ness of work. Statements made by a switchman, yesterday morning, started the rumor. He was reported as working in the yards at West street and was approached by an employe of the Big Four. The latter asked' him how he was getting along when he spoke as follows: "Oh, we fellows on the 'Van' have had, up to to-day, no kick coming, for we have had steady work and have been treated all right both as to Wages and hours. However, to-morrow, this rule will be changed. I understand that the road is going to drop a number of U3 on account of the hard times. If the company does this, it is a sure thing that the rest of the boys will go out and won't return to work If things should happen to change and plenty of work follows unless there is a little more coming." Superintendent Darlington, of the Penn sylvanla,was seen and told of these state ments. He said that was the first he heard of them but he did not think much of It. He said: "What, the Vandalla boys! Why, they are the best men In the State, next to ours. I don't believe there is a thing in it. If there is, I will give every man let off a Job on our road and send the men brought to this city back to their homes and give them work there." The Vandalia has no high officials in this city, the main office beinK at Terre Haute. John Howard, nipht yardmaster, was seen last night, and when questioned about the matter, said: "I am positive that there Is no such movement on foot, for if there had been I would surely have been informed of it. It is possible, though, that if the pres ent condition of affairs exists for several more weeks that the freight handlers and other like workmen will be let off until there is some freight to handle. At, pres ent, these men are almost idle. However, we are running all trains and paying the men just the same as when times were good. The Vandalia and the Pennsylvania, were the only roads In the city that have not cut wages or hours since the beginning of the hard times. The road is solid with the boys and the boys are willing to stand by the. road." Several officials of other roads were seen but they, too, said they did not know any thing of the matter. They suggested ' that this would be a suicidal policy to start. They said that the Vandalia would be courting trouble If it did this and they were of" the opinion that the rumor was un founded. An Incident of 1H77. The announcement yesterday that Gen. Lew Wallace had tendered assistance to Governor Matthews, If needed, during these trying times of lawless mobs and riot, recalled to the minds of many Indianapo lis people the railroad strike of 1877, when, for several days, the peac3 and dignity of this city was threatened. On the bright Sabbath morning that saw the demoraliza tion of the strikers. General Wallace was in command of the famous Montgomery Guards, of CrawforJsville. On the Saturday preceding the decisive step taken by the State, General Wal lace was in Indianapolis and learned that the troops were to be massed here. As commander of the Montgomery Guards he felt that the organization should have a share in the distribution of military honors and, although the company was an Inde pendent one, he telegraphed his first lieu tenant at Crawfordsville to prepare the members for marching orders. Col. I. C. Elston, a prominent Crawfordsville banker, was the first lieutenant, and lost no time notifying the company of General Wal lace's desire. At 4 o'clock on Saturday even ing the orders came to start for Indian apolis and, although there was some grumb ling over the announcement that the trip was to be made overland, the Montgomery Guards turned out loyally. All night, through a driving rain the "band box." mil itary company of the State, composed of Crawfordsvllle's society swells, traveled through the storm, but Thrived here in time to enjoy the round up and were led to the Union Station by their illustrious captain. dunrrittiK Train In the AVet. William L. Taylor arrived in the city at 3:30 yesterday afternoon, having come di rect from a point four hundred miles west of Denver, Col. He said the trouble with the Western roads was mainly west of Denver and in the heart of the mountain regions. The railroad men about Denver, he said, were well satisfied with their treatment by the companies and would not go out. He described the manner in which trains were guarded. Each train as it pulls in is guarded on cither side of the engine. Then each coupling is guarded by four deputies, two on either side. The deputies are sometimes grim-visaged cow boys from the plains and attired in the regulation cowboy garb. They all carry Winchester rillc and the moment t! ' train stops these are brought down in :i I position for firing. Th men hV.dinfr the guns are tied to a rough life and are nt afraid to fire, in fact, they sem.to court i provocation to fire. This is known to no body better than those who might hiv a desire to stop the train, anl they respect J the Winchesters. He says all passenger trains between hre and Denver are run ning as usual and the companies are hav ing no trouble. StrnluhtenlnK Ont the Ills Four. Superintendent Ben1?T. of the Ch'.cnpo division of the Big Four, said yeterdty afternoon that the affairs of that division were about straightened out, anl t.ia; there was no trouble at all upen the di vision locally. He said trains upon it were running in and out of Chicago and he re ceived information from that point that only in some of the outlying districts was there any attempt to Interfere with their trains. In these districts removed from Koroeef makes the home cirri complete. Toil preat Temperance Drink gtve plrp ure and heaitn to every mtmir of toe family.

The strikers at Ashley, Steuben county, telegraphed Marshal Hawkins, yesterdaj morning, requesting him to arrest the fire man and engineer of a certain train thai had paseed throush the village the night before. The message stated that while th strikers and their wives were congregated near the depot three shots were fired Into the crowd from an engine cab.

Chicago Inter Ocean. Forty years ago broom corn gTOwn to quite an extent in the Connecticut val ley, and the Hndlcy broom was a well known article of commerce In the New England States. With the opening of rich land in the more recently settled iortion of the country the center of production of this plant moved rapidly to the West. It ha almost disappeared from the Feaboard. but is a profitable crop In some of the central Western States If it receives suitable attention at th right time broom corn is not a difficult crop to produce. While late planting U to be avoided, it is not well to go to the other extreme and do this work while the ground is cold. A well-prepared seed bed is of reat importance and it is a good plan to plow the ground some time before the planting is to be done. This will cause the seeds of weeds and grass which .may b-j in the land to gf rminate before the prepara tion of the surface sil Is made. A thor ough pulverization of the surface Just be fore planting will Uestrny the? intruding plants, and will thereby greatly aid In keeping the crop clean. As the plants of broom corn are rather weak and make only a slow growth during the first few week after they apiear, the providing of a clean and mellow fee 1 bed Is a matter of consid erable consequence. Planting In hills, which was at one time almost universal, has largely been super seded by drill culture. Toe old custom was to make the hills from two to two and one half feet apart, in rows from three to four feet from each other. A llUral quantity of seed was usol. This made it necessary to thin the plants at the second hoeing and In volved a fcreat deal of very hard work. If good machines are used - and are properly Kauged Just the right quantity of seed can be planted. When care W used in selecting Feed this Is by far th? best way as thin ninj; the plants is both exieislve and tire some. On ordinary noil the stalks may stand three Inch-s apart in the drill, or tv stalks together every six or evn inches. Either very thirl: or very thin planting will ?eriouMy injure th pu ility A the brush. In case a. dwarf variety is ; :row:i t'.ie planting can be much closer than i the distances alve named. Cultivation should be commenced an coon a the plant.- are well attove the ground, it sh-MiM bi? shallow un i be rep ite l fre quently. If Weeds appear bettNeMl ll.Q plants in the drills they inut t e removed. If allow. 1 to remiiti they will retard the growth of th crop and greatly increase the labor of harvesting-, mk well as provido for a succession of their klnJ la future years. Iie- Muy Mot Accex't.
