5 UNLIKE GOV. ALTCELD Claude Matthews Has the Cour age to Do His Duty. President Cleveland and Secretary La mont Unstinted in Their Praise of the Conduct of Indiana's Governor. ANOTHER CALL FOR TROOPS Regulars Xeedetl in Idaho to Sup press a Miners' Insurrection. Sunday Conferences at the White House General 3Iiles's Reinforcements on the Way to Chicago. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WASHINGTON. July 8. -President Cleve land and Secretary Lamonti are unstintel to-night In their expressions of praise at the energetic conduct of Governor Matthews. His promptness and determina tion to uphold the law are In such strik ing contrast to the policy pursued by his executive neighbor across the line. Gov ernor Altgeld. that the President cannot find words sufficiently strong to express his indorsement of all that Governor Matthew? ha3 done. Ills action In shear ing in the militiamen as deputy United states marshals before sending them to Hammond and thereby placing them be yond ail possible intervention of Sheriff Fredericks. Is so cordially indorsed at the White House that there is reason to be lieve that Governor Matthews adopted this stratagem after telegraphic consultation with Attorney-general Olney. The ne.vs that the regulars had promptly opened fire on the mob was received with gratifi cation. President Cleveland has not been entire ly satisfied with the halting policy pur sued by General Miles at Chicago and be lieves that the entire trouble and excesses of the past few days In Chicago could have been averted if there had been more determination shown by the regulars at the first hostile demonstration after their arrival on the scene. Hence the energetic action of the regulars at Hammond meets the entire approval of President Cleve land and Secretary Iamont. The latter 13 Ht this moment at the White House in consultation with the President, and It can be stated on the highest official authority that the federal government is deter mined to hesitate at no step, however ex treme, to restore the authority of the federal government. The subject of pro claiming martial law has been discussed, and while It is believed that the situa tion at Chicago as well as at Hammond Is not yet sufficiently grave to warrant the suspension of the act of habeas corpus and the proclamation 'of martial law, there will be no hesitation when the emer gency arises. All the members of the Cabinet except Secretary Morton were present. Senator Squire, of Washington, called at the White House' and laid before the conference a telegram from Mayor Phelps, of Seattle, stating that he was authentically advised that strikers and an industrial army were conspiring to cause trouble in Seattle, Spokane and Tacoma, and asking that the officers of the revenue cutter Grant, now In the harbor at Seattle, be instructed to land forces if necessary to assist in main taining order. Senator Squire was in formed by Secretary Carlisle that the offi cers of the revenue cutter already had au thority to land troops to protect United States property, but that the forced could not be used to maintain the peace, unless called for by the Governor. The Senator was assured, however, of the co-ooeration of the government in so far as it had author ity. No report of an actual outbreak at Seattle had been received up to a late hour to-night by Senator Squire or the President. This morning Senators Dubois and Shoup, acting on the advice of the President, telegraphed to Governor McConnell, of ld.-.o. who had asked for troops, that it wouH be necessary for the Governor to certify to the President that the local authorities had exhausted every means within their power to tjuell the dis turbances, and that they were unable to cooe with the situation before the govern ment could furnish troops. To-night the following reply was received: "Your telegram citing me to the law re ceived. I am famlM?r with the statute to which you refer, but It does not cover this case. We have to deal with hidden and organized assassins and dynamiters, sev eial hundred strong, provided with arms. Guided by their experience f two years ago they are not now In open insurrec tion but are fighting secretly and under cover. Many pe:iceable citizens have been ordered to leave the country. The sheriff declares his inability to protect life and property. We have not sufficient militia to support him. and nothing but the presence of troop? will restore confidence and safety. This is no time to quibble over ouestions of law and precedents. The conditions are -now and serious; blood has been shed and property destroyed. I therefore believe my iecuet t th President for troops em bodies all that should be required and ask that you unite in petitioning him for the aid we need." ACTIOS OF Or'FIC'IAI.M. Conference ut the While House An other C'nll for Troops. WASHINGTON. July 8. The President and his Cabinet are watching the develop ments of the strike with unabated vigi lance, and soon after breakfast, this morn ing, when, in ordinary times, the Presi dent would b: taking a pleasant drive in the country, he was surrounded by his con stitutional advisers, reading, bulletins from the West and discussing the probabilities of the future. Befors noon, there had called at the White House Secretary Gresham, Secretary Carlisle. Fost.rr.jster-general Ilis sell. Major General Schofield. commanding the army, and Adjutant-general Ruggles. Secretary Lament of course, was already present. During the morning. Senators Dubois and Shoup, of Idaho, called at the White House to urge federal protection for Wallace, Id.., where riot'.n? Is reported. The Gov ernor of Idaho, lut night, made a strong appeal for troops to quell the rioting. The Senators were admitted to the Cabinet room and the whole matter was discussed. The situation in Idaho presents a different phise fron the troubles elsewhere. Inas much as the troul Je Is not connected with the railroad strike, and the Governor has called for federvi troops. It was pointed out to the Senators that the Governor roust certify that he has exhiusted all of Awarned Highest Honors World's Fair. MOST PERFECT MADE. A pire Crape Cream of Tartar Powder.

United States troop? from Fort Sherman will be speedily dispatched to Wallace to :uell the rioters. The only official report that cam to the White House before noon was a telegram from General Miles, saying that the night had passed quietly In Chicago and that he expected no serious trouble to-day. Of course this was encouraging to the adminis tration and it confirmed General Mlles's forecast last evening, when he was In com munication with Secretary Lamont by long distance telephone. Much gratification is felt here at the issuance, by Archbishop Feehan. of his circular to all Catholics, enjoining them to impress on their congre gations the patriotic duty of yielding re spect and obedience to the lawful authori ties. It was believed that, as a large pro portion of the strikers are church-going people, the Chicago ministers of all de nominations to-day would counsel their flocks In the line Indicated by the Arch bishop. It is explained bv the War Department officials that the reinforcement from north ern New York and from Omaha, ordered last nisht. were sent at the suggestion of General Miles, not because he doubted the sufficiency of his present force to deal with hi. share of the responsibility at Chicago, but as a measure of precaution, to cover emergencies at other points in the Depart ment of the Missouri. The General believes that it is good mkitary practice to main tain a strong force of reserves at some central point where they can be forwarded cuickly to suppoxt the detachments at threatened points. Fort Sheridan Is ad mirably situated for this purpose, and while no further reinforcements have been or dered there to-day, everything is In train to hurry many more troops to the fort from General Brooks's command at Omaha, where there does not appear -to be any present necessity for their services. Prob ably to that end to-day Captain Harry, Secretary Lamont's military aid. and Col. Corbin. assistant adjutant-general, were summoned to the White House and re ceived the necessary Instructions to prepare orders for further concentration of troops, if it shall seem desirable. At present the exact strength of the mili tary force at General Mlles's disposal is not known here. ovlngto the absence of recent reports snowing the numWr of men In each company troop and battery, but steps have been taken to get this informa tion by telegraph, so that the department can move advisedly in further transferring troops. Nothing has yet been seen at the White House of the message said to have been addressed to the President. last night, by Messrs. Debs an 1 Sovereign. The pub lished report in the newspapers, of course, has been noted, but until the formal com munication ccve3 to hand the President will not take?gnizance of the letter. At the suygestion of Governor Matthews, of Indiana, three companies of infantry were ordered to Hammond this afternoon. A report has been received here that one rioter was killed this afternoon at Ham mond by United States deputies. General Miles reports that the situation at Chicago is practically unchanged and that riots have been few during the day. The President and his advisers, including Secretarlss Her bert, Gresham and Carlisle, Attorney-general Olney, General Schofield ar.l Postmaster-general Bissau, were again In con ference to-night.

PRINCETON, 111., July 8.-The general merchandise store of the White Hreast Fuel Company, at Ladd, was looted last night by a mob of twelve hundred alien miners from Spi.ng Valley. The stock was valued at $30,(XK, and will be a com plete loss, such articles as could not be carried away being destroyed. The mob was composed of Italians, Poles and Lithu anians, being of the same class that has caused the depredations at Spring Valley, and most of them the same men. The strikers have become so emboldened l-y ihelr success of the last three daws that they made known for the first time their plans for th future. It is the sacking of the buildings of coal companies, the de struction ofhe machinery and the burning of the mines. The work, the miners as sert, will be accomplished before Tuesday .light. The companies, the property of which the miners are determined to de stroy, are the Spring Vallev Coal Com pany, of Spring Valley: the White Breast Fuel Company, of ladd: the Chicago, Wil mington & Vermillion Coal Company, of rfeatonville. and the Charles J. Devlin Coal Company, of Toluca. The first three men tioned companies to-day served notice on the County Supervisors that they would hold the county liable for damages to their property. REAM' FOR TIIK TARIFF. House Will Drop Everything When the Conference Report Is Made. WASHINGTON, July S.-The House of Representatives will be renting during the coming week, ready at all tinus to lay aside Its regular business and take up a conference report on the tariff or any ap propriation bill. On Monday night the rules committee will meet to arrange an order of business, but whatever It agrees to take up will be conditioned on Riving way to the tariff or appropriations when ever a confarence report is presented. Dis trict of Colunvbl.i legislation will occupy the House to-morrow. For the rest of the week the rules committee will probably give several days for the bill to elect United States Senators by direct vote of the people, and also several days for nu merous bills of a legal and judicial char act:r reported by the judiciary committee. The first effort to reconcile the differences between the Senate and House on the tariff bill will be made to-morrow. The Demo cratic conferees met at noon in the Senate finance committee room. The Republican conferees have hot been asked to be pres ent. It Is not as a committee, therefore, that the meeting will be held, and it is un derstood to be the purpose of holding no meetings of the full committee until the four Democratic Senators and four Demo cratic Representatives have reconciled their differences. The Democratic members ot the committee say they ea: expedite their work better among themselves than they could if constantly exposed to the harass ment of the minority conferees. With tnis programme in view there may be no meet ing of the committee as a whole for a week or ten days, in the meantime the Demo crats will proceed with the work, and when agreements have ben reached in whole or In part the Republicans will be called in and the committee as a whole will act on what the Democratic members of it have previously agreed. '1 his is sim ilar to the plan followed by the Democrats of the ways anil means committee in orig inally framing the bill, and by the Demo cratic members of th finance committee when it was before that body. Chairman Wilson left for West Virginia Immediately after his appoint merit as a conferee yes terday, so mat there has reen no oppor tunity for consultation with him to-u:iy, end the Democratic conferees will assemble without prearranged programme.

U. to Tic Up the Koads in that City. MANY SUNDAY MEETINGS At Which Sympathy Was Voted the Iiailway Strikers. President Cleveland Denounced at Some of the Assemblages No Likelihood of Trouble in the East. HUFFAIiO, N. Y., July S. There Is no doubt that President Debs has planned a strike at Buffalo, but there Is considerable doubt as to whether he will be able to bring his plans to a successful Issue. Karly to day he sent this telegram to Stuart Reid, his organizer here: "We ask your co-operation in Buffalo. We are making a great fight for labor and deserve the support of all railroad Em ployes. Capital has combined to enslave labor. We must all stand together or go down In hopeless defeat. It is Impossible for the companies to fill the vacancies. We can solve this problem only by quitting in a body and standing together, one for all and all for one, upon each and every road throughout the land." . About 7 o'clock a telegram came to Pres ident Malacan, of the local branch of the A. It. U., directing him to call out his men and. giving him Instructions as to what course to pursue. The telegram also begged Malacan to keep the men from rioting. Notwithstanding this order, there will be no strike in Buffalo to-nfght and there may rot be one for several days. President Malacan has decided that there Is nothing to be gained by calling out his men. The A. R. U. Is a new organization in Buffalo and has not to exceed four hun dred members. Unless Malacan could get support from the other railroad men his strike would not make much of an impres sion. Malacan' said to-night: "I received a telegram from Mr. Debs to-night, but there will be no strike to-night, and I can not tell when there will be one. I am not at all averse to calling out my men when I see something to be gained by the opera tion. I cannot say yet whether there will be a strike or not. As soon as I think a strike Is necessary there will be one. That time may never come. The roads leading west from here are tied up, and until they get open again there would be no sense of striking in Buffalo. It certainly will" not come to-night." The Central Labor Union, composed of delegates from 11 the unions in the city, be!d a meeting to-day and passed resolu tions of sympathy with the strikers. Th German Trades Assembly to-day passed resolutions in which Grover Cleveland was called the foe of labor. The troops of the Ninth Regiment, from Sackett's Harbor and Oswego. wmt through here at 11:10 o'clock to-night. The garrisons at Fort Porter and Fort Niagara are still under waiting orders. There Is absolutely no trouble in any of the railroad yards. Hallway MnmijrcrM I-Vjir Yo Trouble. NBW YORK, July 8. General Eastern Passenger Agent Daniels, of the New York Central & Hudson River road, said to day: "I think the big strike is nearing its end, especially now that the Ninth Regi ment has started for the scene. Mobs can't stand against the United States army As far as Buffalo is concern?d. In spite of the alarming reports, I do not fear any trouble. At 11 a. m. I received a dis patch from our general agent there say ing that the men were qulst and will not go out. Our trains are running better than they have been for several days, and the delay is hardly noticeable. We bgan to day selling through tickets to Chicago, with sleeping-car berths." The employes at the Grand Central Station said that there was no prospect of their going out. At th? Pennsylvania Company's Jersey City terminus. It was said that all trains from Chicago were running on fairly good time. The Chicago limited, which left that city Friday night, arrived here this morn ing, eleven hours late, but the Saturday night train that started from Chicago on time was coming through all right. The Atlantic express, due here at 4 p. in., was late, but the delay was due more to heavy cars than anything else. The Baltimore iVr Ohio company stopped to-day selling tickets to Chicago. and would not take passengers to any point nearer Chicago than GarrMt. Ind. Charles Dodge, who is hiring switchmen In the United States Hotel, did not keep his recruiting office open to-day. He sent away sixty men last night, but not over th? New York Central, as he did their predecessors. It is believed that they were sent over the Pennsylvania or the Balti more & Ohio road. Mails were arriving a little more prompt to-day, but none were received from the Pacitic coast. The last matter from there leached New York duly 1. Chicago mails of July 6 and 7 arrived here to-day at 1 a. m.; Denver malls of July 4 and arrived at 10:Z) a. m. ; Milwaukee malls of July 5 and arrived at 10 a. m. and 12:;i0 p. m. ; Omaha mails of July 6 came in at 3:U0 p. m., and Cleveland malls of July 7 reached here at 12:00 and 5 p. m. No mails were reeeiv?d from the West over the B. & O. road. Although the railroads are moving very little freight they reported to-day that they were carrying extraordinary large quantities of live stock into New York. Tn?-total receipts of lambs and sheep for the past week were 78.7tl. the largest recorded. They came from Ohio. West Virginia. Virginia and Kentucky.

While one or two lodges of labor organizations have passed resolutions of sympathy, none of the men is disposed to enter into a sympathetic, strike. Number of ranroad employes ,,f the better class are going West to take the place; of the strikers. Secretary .las. Russe'.'. of the local branch of the Ameri can Railway Union, says that he has re ceived several communications from Presi dent Debs, but there is no likelihood of th fifty members being called out, as their idces could bo so easily tilled. Railroad otllcials do not anticipate any trouble here notwithstanding the report sent out to the contrary. B. O. trains are going through as frr e Garrett, Ind. Only one train reached here from Chicago to-day and none yesterday. AT .i:Y YORK. Ki:iuhtt of l.afxtr nod Printer Hold .Mer I i NEW YORK. July S. District Assembly No. K. Knights of Iibor, held a protracted meeting to-day. The meeting adjourned ut o'clock, when it was said that a dis patch was awaited hourly from Grand Mas t.T Workman Sovereign ordering out the numbers of the crganlzation. A res olution was passed cotideninir.g the employ nurd of State and federal troops at ('id ea go and denouncing Attorney-general ol ney "and the rest of th" capitalistic crew !a ordering the destruction of human life to give a few dollars a year to Pullman et al." The action of Grand Master Work man Sovereign and the American Railway I'uioii was Indorsed. At a special meeting to-day Typographical Union. N'o. 0. passed resolutions of sympa thy with the A. R.

The Central Lalor Union to-day discussed the railroad strike and appointed a com mittee to confer with committees from Tj" pographlcal Union, No. 6. the Knights of Labor, and other organizations to hold a mass meeting to express sympathy with the strikers. This meeting will be held in a lew days. John R. Bell, secretary of the Atlantic Coast Seamen's Union, presided, and James p. Archibald made the llrst speech. He said it would be the veriest cow ai dice not to take action showing that the Central Iabor Union was in full sym pathy with the American Railway Union. Numerous speeches were made In sympa thy with the Chicago strikers, praising Gov. Altgeld. denouncing President Cleveland and defying the New York police to inter fere with the proposed labor union mass meeting. A resolution was adopted con demning the Chicago fire bugs as enemies of organized labor; also, expressing sympa thy with the strikers. AGAINST STItlKIXG.

The tenor of the pro ceedings in the meetings held by the vari ous labor organizations connected vith the railway service In this city to-day was de cidedly against striking. An organization of railroad inspectors was effected this afternoon, but its members, declare they will belong to a national organization of their craft rather than join forces with the A. R. U. A telegram was received here last niKht by an A. It. U. organizer from President Debs Instructing' him to form a committee at once and be prepared to call all railroad men out on the principal roads leading into Boston to-day. A reply was sent to President Debs, stating that thing was impossible. At a. number of other labor meetings held here to-night the strike was Indorsed and the action of Pres ident Cleveland in using his prerogative as Commander-in-chief In ordering the fed eral troops to Chicago was universally con demned. Many of the organizations are waiting the call for subscriptions, which, when made, will be responded to Immedi ately. AT riTTMUHG. llullvrny Kinployes Tliere Xot Afflict ed with Hie Strike Fever. PITTSBURG, Pa.. July 8. There seems to be no prospect of the strike fever reach ing Pittsburg at present. Eight or ten reg ular Sunday meetings were held by the railroaders, but the American Railway Union trouble was not formally considered, except at one or two. Lodge 300, of Fort Wayne engineers, passed resolutions de claring that they would have nothing to do with the strike and would remain loyal to the company and public. The A. R. U. or ganizers spoke at a special meeting at Ben nett Station, where they succeeded in en rolling tifty new members. Trains from the West are reaching here in fairly good time. Baltimore & Ohio ticket agents received orders to resume the sale of Pullman tickets to-morrow. I rged to Stnnd Firm. BROCKTON. Mass., July 8. The Central Labor Union held a meeting this afternoon. Fervid resolutions against the Pullman company and President Cleveland, as well as others In favor of the A. R. U. and the governmental control of railroads, were adopted.

Three thousand organized workmen in Brockton are with you In the fight against the tyr anny of the Pullman company and of the railroad monopolies, and pledge you our hearty support." Will Not Strike at Washington. WASHINGTON, July 8. Local railroad business is not greatly- affected by the strike, except the Western freight and passenger trafllc. Tickets to Chicago are sold to-day at both the Pennsylvania and Baltimore & Ohio offices. Railroad men here say that they do not belong to the A. R. U., and have no intention, of strik ing. Reports that the Knights of Labor are to be called out are discredited by local officers of the order, who declare they have received no notification of such a step. 31 ay Strike hn Individual. DENVER, Col.. July 8. The Brotherhood pf Railroad Trainmen of this district held a meeting last night. S. D. Clark, of Pocatello, Ida., who represented the train men, was present. The officers refuse to give out any information regarding the meeting, but one of the members said the lodge had refused to indorse the stand taken by the federated board at Cheyenne and would allow the men to strike as in dividuals. Many are now out and they will be given fullest protection. ,eltitcli Men Have Had Euouffli. WILKESBARRE, Pa., July 8.The at tempt to form branches of the A. R.

A committee of agitators from Chicago have been working among the men for three days past, but left for Buffalo to-day. thoroughly disgusted. The railroad men have not yet recovered from the effects of the Lehigh Valley strike of last year, and hence are not enthusiastic over the prospect of going out again. Will Work Intll Ordered Out. DENVER, Col., July S. Rocky Mountain division, O. R. T., has decided not to go on strike until ordered by the grand chief. This policy was agreed on at a meeting held last night. The members uphold the A. R.

All Night SeBnIon. CHICAGO, July 8. A mass meeting of representatives of all the trades unions in the city is in session to-night to consider the question of going on a strike in sym pathy with the Pullman boycott.

Ky., July S.-Kelly's wealers, who captured the east-bound freight train on the Chesapeake & Ohio at Vanceburg last night, arrived at Keno va, W. Va.. at daylight. Governor Mc Corkle ordered Companies I and G. of Huntington, to proceed to Kenova and in tercept the army. Under directions of Sher iff Lmbert. the militia arrested them and are now guarding them near the depot. The Governor and four legal advisers ar rived at Kenova on a special train to-day and tried to induce the men to go back to Kentucky, which they refused to do. The men received three meals to-day and seem well contented. The general impression is that Governor McCorkle has made a mis take by stopping the men at Kenova, as they would have proceeded on through the State towards Washington. Probable Murder mid Suicide.

No Prospect of a General Tie-Up in Ohio, but Strikers Are Increasing at Toledo and Cleveland. SITUATION IN THE FAR WEST United States Troops Now Guard ing the Union Pacific. Incendiarism at Various Points Cars Burned at Danville, 111. Attempt to Wreck a Train. ST. LOUIS, July S. The great railroad strike, so far as St. Louis is concerned, may be said practically to be approaching an end, and the only desideratum now is ability to transfer to outlying railroads traffic originating here and hauled over divisions having St. Louis as the originat ing point. On the west side of the river the return last night of the Missouri Pa cific switchmen and yardmen has resulted in the trooping back to work of all but about SCO men hitherto engaged In freight yard work In the various yards on the west side. Passenger traffic, all of which is han dled from the west side of the river, is on a normal basis, the only trains not run ning being a few "duplicates," as thay are called, and one or two accommodations; and these are laid oft from lack of bus iness, not inability to handle them. The Terminal Railway Association has a full force at work on the west side also. One exception to all this is the Wabash rail way, which is still crippled, but has so far progressed as to be prepared to start away freight each way on each division to-morrow morning. With thes will come a test of whether the quiet at Decatur, 111., Mo berly. Mo., and other outside division points indicates the end of the trouble there. On the east side of the river, devoted, as the facilities there are, entirely to freight traffic, the situation on the surface Is quite Improved, each road moving sev eral freight trains, with the assurance, al most, that trouble will cease to-morrow as a result of the almost complete resump tion of work on the west side by the strik ing yardmen. On the east side the excep tions to th? improvement in busineas are the Louisville & Nashville, which has un settled trouble wdth its trainmen on two divisions, as well as with the switch and yardmen, and the Wabash. Thus It is that St, Louis traffic is practically unimpeded by conditions existing within her own bor ders. The General Managers' Association, which still maintains its bureau, now esti mates that not to exceed a hundred new men will be requ'red to fill vacancies among the 1,300 who originally Hruck. In this es timate it is assumed that the unskilled labor will scarcely dare hold out ' against the good men. ' According to a statement made by General Manager Gays, of the associated railways, all the striking switchmen in St. Louis have returned to work, and by to-morrow morn ing the lines running from the city, north, west and south will be in full operation and In a position to handle passengers and freight. Five switching crews on the Wa bash were the last to return to-day. A telegram was received to-night from President Debs by J. J. Reifgraber, secretary of the District Assem bly, K. of I. ordering him to be ready to call out the members of that organization In St. Ixuis in support of the Pullman boycott.
