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

companies of United States troops have

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

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."

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.

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. It looks much as though the

! 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.

"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."

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.

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.

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.

10 FUSI01I,
The Sentiment in Its Favor Has
Died Out
Among Members of the Demo
cratic Convention.
A STRAIGHT TICKET
Is Now the Programme Ac
quiesced In.
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."
