ALL PARALYZEa The Santa Fe Situation Shows Little Improvement. No Freight Trains Yet Moving Oat of Kansas City. Fassener Trains Running as Far as Nickerson. STRIKERS CONFIDENT That the Itoad Can Not Re sume Operation. Managers Sure the Trouble Can't Last Much Longer. DON WHITE RIBBONS. Ladies Worn by the Strikers and Sympathizers. Numerous Meetings Held and More on the Slate. General Manager J. J. Frey sail this morning tha' it is true that there is some trouble iimotir tho engineers on the New Mexico division because they are afraid to handle trains, tut that they are stand ing' by the company all right. Three companies of United States troops have left Santa Fe "f jr Katun aud will be there before uigah The company say they succeeded in moving seventeen freight trains on the eastern grand division yesterday and ex pect to move that many today. There is Utile change in the general situation sun e yesterday. The company ofliciaissay they are sat isfied that thoy can get all the men they wars', to operate the road. Mr. Frey eaid: "I am receiving hundreds of applica tions lrom all over the country for work, from men wl.o have worked in all de partments in the railroad business. One from Creston. la., off.irs ten men. Hero Is one from St. Louis which says we can get all the mu we need from the south, where there .6 little sympathy for unions. I have no doubt we can get all the me:i we want iu ensu we have to call for them and will proticf them." The foKiw n telegram was also re ceived tin? morning irotn a man nobody knows: In'owksdexce, Kan., July 3. J. J. Frey. T !.: Want to enlist to put down the rebel lion. Answer at Fredonia. Signed. G. A. Coi.ton. The reporter read fere'al letters aud law several r lore. Mr. Frey has answered pome of the litters and wiil accept some of the offers. Woarlnj While Itbunn. As a resi-lt of the announcement in last eveuing'-i Jolknal that President Debs iiad as ted all sympathizers with the strikers 1o wear while ribbons, a great many are being worn on the street loday. This is done iu accordance with the request ma le by the union that all in sympathy with its strike make them selves known bi this manner. Nearly all of the wearers are railroad men but many are being worn by citi zens ani several women have been seen with tu" whi o emblem who are perhaps railroad men s wives and daughters. A eoium t'.iw of the A. 1 i. U. distribut ed the ribbons on the street this morn ing. The wearing of the ribbon is ex pected to spreaii. Both of lie meetings ye " were at Trades' Assembly hall ana d out the usual sulfonating crowd. The crowd was if anytiing more enthusiastic than usual and though there were no resolu tions pased, there were plenty of speak ers and they kept the crowd enthused. At tha afternoon meeting, ex-Conductor J. W. Lyons wus the principal speaker. Among of the remarks he made was the fu!!jing: Sot ilrunl of the Array. "There ar. now over 400,000 men out on tins strike and the number will soon be much latger. There are only Co, U0 men iu the United States army. Do you think thess iaen can stop us? "Men, for G id's sake, stand by your fellow laborer-: Will you. as men, as citizens of the United States, take the bread out of the mouths of these men w ho are now striking T Will you de scend to the level of a scub J At this there were cries of 'No, No.'J The men have been very lenient to the Santa Fe company. V'hy, they have even gone so far as to loan ihe company two months' wages with which to do business." It was Ht this meeting that the com mittee was appointed to call on the road officials and demand the two months' pay now due the! j. It was the intention of the employe? that if this demand failed they would take the matter to the courts. '1 he comm.ttee got no satisfaction out of the officials and so reported to the ineeung. The committee then tallied with a lew lawyers and the upshot of the conference was that there will be no at tempt made o have the courts adjust the diilk-ulry in legari to the overdue wages. The men are too poor, they say, to carry the expenses of the suit The road's cilicials say that the men at the shops arn not discharged; that they are simply iaid off. This the railroad men say, is done in order to avoid payin the men off i.t present. Mr, Wilder, the treasurer of the compmy says that the road is iosiua money at tne rate of $40,00 J a day, and that there is no money with which to meet all the bills. The men re gard the layt-if yesterday as simply a dis charge. Tht - nay they were all ready to go out, and taat if they had not been laid oil they would not be working any way. Th Kvxntnir Mmltn(. Tha t veuir g meeting waa fully as en thusiastic as the "-o"ious one, and waa addressed by Fire main J. S. McFaddenof Argentine, and Firetain James Appleby, an Argentine fireman, and also the pres ident of the A. K. U. there. The speeches reviewed the strike and the union, and were tilled with bitter attacks on the "scabs." No blame was attached to the heads of the orders for advising the men to use caution iu ttriking. It was considered their duty. After the meeting an opportunity was given all who wished to sign the roll and become members of the A. Ii. U., and many took advantage of the chance. Reports differ as to tiin much disputed result of the union meeting at B. of L. K. hall yesterday morning. The A. IS. U. men nay thaC the res jluti on for the switchmen, "tiremen and brakemen to go out carried unanimously, but the road officials, who claim to have their informa tion from a reliable source, eay that the call for the votes in favor of the motion were responded to by n minority vote an 1 that tue uays v-?re not asked for at alL It is a fact at least that a sutlicient number of the men in these departments are working in the yards here to carry on ail business required. The road officials say that none of the men at the mueting have as yet refused to work. A I :p ti ( on i eraelty. President Sloat gays that in stating that tho resjlution to strikn did not carry at this meeting the oiliciuls show a very indifferent regard for their reputa tions for veracity, or words that convey tho same meaning, but the otli cials say they do not care what Mr. Sioat or his few followers think of them or their statements, as it is quite sure they will never again be called upon to ask those gentlemen anything in regard to the starting or stopping of a train. "In other words said on.? of the gentle men they are tired bodily and will not be taken back under any consideration." It is certain that the railroad company is discharging all the leaders and sym pathizers as fast as they make themselves known and put themselves on record as such. Harry Chaj man, who is the recording secretary of tat? union here, was let out of his job as tireman Sunday. He was called to Mas!er Mechanic Smith's office in the morning and asked if ho would go on board No. . when she came in from Kansas City. 'Will she carry Pullman cars?" asked Chapman. "Yes.' "Then I won't go." said tho A. R U. man and ho was discharged. Moat ll-mise.l by O. It. C. It will be remembered that a few days ago when Conductor Ii. J. Sloat, presi dent of the local union, was discharged, he said that he was a member of the O. li. C. aud add.?d that they would attend to his case. They have. At the meeting of the order Sunday Mr. i51o.it, wl.o, by the way, was not i present, was arraigned as an agitator and , a menace to the order and summarily ! disrnisie 1 from the order by a vote that ! is sa. d to have been practically unani- I JJIOUS. This is the story at least, uud though 1 none of the numbers of the or ler are at ; liberty to say so Superintendent AlcLel- ' lan said this morning that enough had j been told him to make him sure of it. It j is further staled by tho. -e who claim to j know that Conductor J. W. Lvons was ! also treated iu tiio same way at the same ' time. S'tnviin at Km pori j A Santa Fe tireman whocaino in on his ' run from tiie west last eveui.ig said that ' the situation at Emporia is still no better for the roa.l. ! "Nothing is i eing done in the yards there. A tug meeting oi the union was held yesterday ufrernoon and it was very enthusiastic he speeoaes were re ceived with cheers and tue offer of the Farmer's Alliance to feed the strikers was renewed. A committee of three i liundred Populists was at the meeting j and among iheui were two of me cuu y j Commissioner.--. There is no doubt that I tue men there cau live a long tune with- ! out work. The sympathy for them there ! is intense A meeting is to be called in a few days at which there wiil be a divi sion of supplies furnished by the farmers and the latter say taey will keep the strikers a year if neces-ary. "At .uulvaae the y mpathy for the strikers is fully as strong as at Fmporia. 1 was down there yesterday. I admit I was scabbing but if they didn't notice it I didn't take the trouble to i all their attention to it. I got back alive and sent in my resignation this morning. 1 believe if I'd go down their scabbing again I'd bo hung. Tiiey won't feed a man there that is not a sympathizer. A scab firemen went down there Saturday aud stayed over Sunday but he didn't get anything to eat nor any place to sleep. Wnile I was at Emporia yesterday sorno fellow saitl the strikers wero a set of fools anyway, and he had to take it back or take a licking. He took it back." Stories of this kind come in with every train crew. No .Strikn on Tliis Uit lalon. Superintendent McLellau and Train master Tice are at their de-ks at the Santa Fe today and say that, everything is running smoothly. "There is practically do strike on this division," said Mr. Mel.ellan, "and our passenger trains are miming all right No. 0 came in today with three Pullman cars and No. !- came in from Denver this morning with three Pr.llmans at o o'clock. No. ti, due at .":10 a. m., was annulled. The trains from the east are coming all right and the trains from the west are expected on time. An otlic ial said this morning: "None of our men are out that will prevent work. Our Atchison freight has been annulled today for an indefinite time. There is no business. People are as afraid to ship as they are to travel.'' At the rouui house no freight engines have been brmght in or taien out, ex cepting for the Atchison run. since one went in Saturlay night. The only thing being handled there is passenger en gines, and not tho full number oi those. While it is true that trains are run ning and Pullman cars are still being carried, the trains that go through To pekaouly run to Nicserson and back, it. is also true that very few people are trusting themselves to the tender mercies of the railroads and their strikers at present.

Debs Says There'll Be a Truce ; Over the Fourth. Chicago, July 3. President Debs of i the A. Ii. U. was served this noon with a chancery subpu-na tiled in the United States circuit court today. He was found at the Telaud hotel by a deputy marshal. Tho subpiena was simply a formal notice to appear before the court during the August term to answer the bill. Before President Debs aud Vice Presi dent Howard left the Leland this morn ing for headquarters they were visited by P. E. Studebaker, who had a brief conference with them in the hotel lobby. After the talk with the leaders of tho boycott, Mr. Stude baker said it was time that he was trying to bring about a settlement of the strike. "I don't waut any noto riety," said he. "But I have talked sev- eral times w ith Mr. Debs, who is a friend of mine, and I will do anything I can to bring about a compromise and settle ment of the trouble." l.t lailti t!i? Injunction. President Debs of the American Rail way union was called upon by a repre sentative of the Associated Press this morning, and asked his opinion of the effect which the injunction process of the federal court would have upon the boycott. "I have not yet ben served with any injunction," said President Debs, "and perhaps I had better uol cross the bridge until 1 get to it I waut to say distinct-, ly that none of our officers are ruuuiug Irotn any court process: we are all hero and can easily be found if wanted. "I t-hail not deny mat I have seen the injunction as it has 'been printed in the newspapers, and I am fuiiy advised of its purport as the newspapers gave it. Aa I re id it, it eeks to restrain the men from doing what we have always for bidJeu them to do, that is to iuterlero with the moving of trains, committing acts of violence t:ui violating the laws of the bind generally. "liaurow.l emplo3res have the unques tioned rigid to withdraw individually or iu a body lrom the service of a company, but they have no right to interfere w.tn others who may be employed to lake their places. Tin .r rights end w here the company's rig it i begin, and if ihe com; ii.iv secure other employes to suc cessfully operate their road, they have unquestioned right to do so. ii in -So 31 i -1 n r' ; '. "We rely solely for success upon our men standing out together iu all things, t-upported as we are financially and otherwise by all of the lab r organiza tions of the country without an excep tion, we have no misgivings as to what the outcome will be." S j far as the law and order are con cerned, court injunctions are not re quired, since the policy of our board of Uirectors has always been, is and will be, to restrain members from committing acts of depredation, and those who disre gard our instructions should be held in dividually liabie and be punished ac cordingly. "H e are making every effort to pre vent trouble on the Fourth," added Presi dent Debs. "We are warning our people everywhere to exercise the greatest ciire to avoid any conflict with the companies on that day. There will be by greneral consent a sort of truco and the effort will be made to let our differences lie over 24 hours, while we observe the nation's holiday. If there is any trouble it will not be of our making." Tlrl f lepiity Mxr.tiuU. United States District Attorney llil christ. Attorney Edwin Walker and United States Judge Grosscup decided today to call for federal aid. A telegram was accordingly at once sent to Attorney General Oluey asking for regular troops for Blue Island. No more deputy mart shals will be sworn in. One hundred and fffty applicants for service as deputy marshals, were turned away from the United States marshal's office today. A telegram from the military authori ties at Washington, was received at local army headquarters last night orderiug that the Fhlteenth regiment at Fort Sher idan be held iu readiness to proceed to Blue Island at a moment's notice. The dispatch was sent from Washing ton, after a conference ' between President Cleveland and his advisers at which the situation in Chicago was care fully considered. Not a Kock Island train was moving today at Blue Island, but the switcii tracks were occupied w ith dead engines and stalled trains. The planing mills have shut down as they can not get cars to move their lum ber. This will throw out of work over 15.0J0 men. Not Particular Which Regiment. At the conference held at the federal building this morning between United States Attorney Milchrist and Attorney Edwin "Walker and Judge Grosscup, at which it was decided to call for federal troops aid from the authorities at Wash ington for the Blue Island crisis. No particular regiment was designated. Judge Grosscup expressed the opinion that the strikers at Blue Island clearly violated the injunction issued yesterday by the United States court The strikers stopped the train on the Nickel Plate road which left the city at 7:30 a. m., at Ninety-second street and Stony Avenue island. The engineer and firemen were compelled to leave their engines. Tha train is now in the hands of the strikers. Twenty-five depui ties were at once sent to the scene with order to recover the train and dispatch it on its way east A, passenger train on the B. & O. was ditched at Kock Island Junction today by strikers. .The engineer was badly hurt in jumping and the road wa com pletely blocked by the derailed train. Mck.i 1'lute Xletl I p. The Nickel Plate road caught it today in earnest All the engineers, hreineu, brakemen and trackmen on the Chicago end of the line stopped work simultane ously and without warning, leaving things in a desperate state of confusion, 'ihe worst effect of the walk out was in the swauapy regions several miles from the city near Kensington. Here a whole traiu load of passengers from the east were left to their own re sources near tho Stony Island station. They had been brought hundreds of miies aud then left practically in a wil derness though almost within sight of their destination. It was reported at the general mana gers headquarters today that the strikers had broken into a freight car at Lausing, Ills., and stole OS kegs of powder. The car stood on the Pau Handle side track. Kii-Ht Tinii in diic.4jt IdiMiury. Today, for the first time in the history of the live stock business of Chicago, not a siugle carload of animals reached tho union stock yards by rail. The effect ot the Pullman boycott on the railroads was so overwhelmingly complete that not one steer, not a sheep, not a solitary hog arrived by means of steam, transportation. Absolutely the only live stock received was one little bunch of 13 hogs that came in wagons from a farm hail a dozen miles out from the city. Shipments were almost equally at a standstill. The thousands of packing house employes aud other workmen who go to make up the population of Pack iugtown were made idle as thoroughly and suddenly as though all had quit at a givon signal from President Debs, though only a comparatively insignifi cant traction are members of the A. K. U. Two attempts only at getting out packing house products were made. The Michigan Central tried to make up and btart a traiu load of dressed beef last uight. The trainmen abaudoned the cars wnh scant notice, aud the beef was left to rot on the tracks in the yards. The Panhandle road got nineteen cars of beef through to Brighton, a distance of two miles. What became of the train between Brighton and Blue Island uo one seemed to know. I. C K ,;ioiii K id 'r the Strike.

Shall Martin Be Endorsed a Doubtful Question. The Democrat Btate convention was called to order this afternoon at 2:30 p. m. at Hamilton hall by "W. C. Jouea, chairman of the state central committee. United States District Attorney W. C Perry of Ft Scott, was elected temporary chairman; W. IL L. Pepperill of Concor dia, temporary secretary. S. D.Scott and and H. "W. Stewart were named for assis tant secretaries. The Democrats have shown better taste in the decoration of the hall than either the liepublicans or Populists. There is no profusion of decoration though the same faded red, white and blue strips of cloth are stretched across the top of tha hall. There are no flam ing banners, but the front of the stage is rimmed with ferns, while a beautiful bouquet of roses adorns each of the press desks. The gavel used is made from the broken door of tho last house of repre sentatives. A pictu.-e of Jefferson adorns one side of the stale and one of Jackson the other side. The committee on dec orations could not get pictures of Hanni bal and Alexander the Great or they would probably have gone that far back into ancient history. The Democrats are experiencing one difficulty seldom known at a state con vention. There are few candidates, and those who are mentioned modestly say that they do not care to be, sacrificed on the altar of Democracy. The only office lor wdiich there will be a contest is that of governor. There are two candidates, David Overmyer of this city, and W. C. Jones, chairman of the state central com mittee. The chances are that Overmyer will be nominated though Jones has gained strength today. The fusiouists decided to put up a man, but the senti ment is so overwhelmingly against, them that they will probably not nominate any one. There will not be fusion. It has been thought that George W. Clark, the Populist candidate for asso ciate justice, and W. A. Harris, Populist congressman at large, would bo ou Uoroed, even if the rest ef the ticket id iguori'd, but Clark has abandoned hope of endorsement, and the supporters of the scheme to endorse Harris have also dw iudied down to a corporul's guard. A plan was tiilked among the dele gates to do.vu Overmyer with McCIbv erty and nominate a ticket wdiich could be pulled off tue track before the elec tion. If Overmyer is nominated he wjl not consent to a withdrawal. This, too, fell through, aud with it the last remaining hope of the fusiouists disappeared McCleverty will probably be nominated for associate justice, though Charles llayden, Hol tou lawyer, would like to have the nomi nation and wiil have some streugtli. The candidates for lieutenant governor are hard to find. Lee Jones says he doesn't expect the nomination, as Topena can't monopolize the entire ticket and it would loos that way if Overmyer is nominated for governor and Charley Iloliiday for auditor. Tully Scott, the brilliant young Demo crat from the northwest, waa mentioned in connection with the nomin atiou but he says there isn't enough money in the Democratic party to hire him to accept. W. F. Sapp, of Cherokee county, who has a small body but a big aud thoroughly Democratic stalwart brain would accept the nomination aud there is a probability that he will be named. Only one candidate for secretary of state has appeared. He is J. A. Kegnell of McPherson couuty. If present indication counts for anything there will be no contest for the office of state treasurer as Charles Stack -house of Osage county, is the only man who has had the courage to say that he is a candidate. W. E. Banks of Kussell county, wdll probably be nominated for auditor. No one has yet been found to take the nomination for attorney general or su perintendent of public instruction, but the man will be forthcoming when the office is reached in the list of nomina tions. J. G. Lowe of "Washington county is being urged for congressman-at-large, but he says he doesn't want the nomina tion, whiie the friends of Congressman W. A. Harris still hope for an endorse ment. The Shawnee county delegation hold a meeting last niht and adopted the unit rule in voting. They also decided to vote for no one who is not in favor of the policy of Senator John Martin. When the convention assembled the Modoc club entertained the delegates with one of their characteristic songs and were recalled. After the call had been read, Rev. Dr. Longe, of oalina, read a lengthy prayer. The delegates stood and impatiently fanned themselves. W. C. Jones, chairman of the state cen tral committee then delivered an ad dress. He said: "Two years ago the Democrats had ad journed their state convention with the purpose of defeating the Republican party and to take control of the congress of the United States out of the hands of the Republicans. But no such condi tion exists now and we are here to up hold straightout Democracy." This statement was greeted with cheers and applause. Tue speaker reviewed the record of the Democratic party, and when he i. ferred to Grover Cleveland there was u plause, but it was not of the unani.'no., enthusiastic kind. In closing the speaker said: I r. people demand that we shall go tef r them with a straight ticket, ar. i by t!i action next November we will ttiurs i i fall." T1IK CO 31 Ml XT n .
