The day opened threateningly, and ominous signs were visible everyvhere in Chicago. At an early hour this morning mobs began to assemble atot.t the junction points of roads, and before 9 o'clock it was evident that a great battle for supremecy was on. Mayor Hopkins telegraphed hastily to the governor ns-kioj for five regiments of militia to .iid Liin in preserving the peace. Thousands of people gathered at Kensington, a suburb adjoining the town of Puilmari and the junction of the ilichigan Central and the Illinois Central lines. There were no troops there, .but the tracks were guarded by a small company o United States mar shals. Very soon a milk train arrived on its way to Chicago and this was the signal for hostilities to begin. The mob began an assault and were met with great vigor, by the marshals, who began tiring niraost instantly. Two of the I rioters were k lied outright and a number ; w ere wounded. j A mad frenzy seized the people and i they rushed in and seized the niiik train j and began toppling the cars over. They then detached the engiue and ran it off a : half a mile on the track, stopped it, re- j versed it and opened the throttle wide j md. drove it back into the mass of over- j turned freight car? striking the cars with fearful force. A frantic appeal was sent ; at once to Chicago for assistance and troops were d spa'.ehed to the scene. Fifty tr!g!it Care Murned. j At Buiiisk.e, a station three rnile3 i near Chicago th in Kensington, fifty ' empty freight cars were standing upon the track?. The mob sei lire to these and j they were all practically destroyed. Only a few of the south-bound roads ) attempted to dispatch trains and were j waiting anxiously for developments, i while the majority of the United Slates ! were calmly tenting in camp on the lake ! front waiting for the arrival of addi- j tional troops from Fort Brady and Fort Lafayette. These rami) in about 11 o'clock and 1 niaicupcl to the lake Iront and. went into camp. The situation is better at St. Louis today and more threatening at Chicago. There is a general strike at Cleveland j and 'he C. Sc 1'. road is tied up along its j whole length. The Big Four is tied up j everywhere. Particular of the Kennlnton Riot. Two strikers were killed outright and others and tl ought to have been seri ously injured in the riot in the Illinois Central vardi at Kensington today. The strikers began collecting on the tracks j eaily, and at 10 o'clock 500 men were j rushing up and down the yards over- turning freight cars and destroying the ; tracks in every manner possible. A force ' of about lot. I'. S. deputy marshals and j Cook county deputy sheriffs were in the j vicinity and charged the mob at various j place, driviig small squads of men from j the yards. The strikers forces were rapidly re- ! cruited and oy half past ten, a thousand j frautio men were howling ami throwing 1 htones over a stretch of tracks a. mile in length. At that time the Illinois Central milk train came steaming plowly up fr ni the south attempting to reach the city. The mob immediately charged on it and in a trice the engine was detached and the cars overturned. The crew had already tied and the strikers mounting the engine carried it back a quarter of a mile, when opening the throttle, they jumped from the cab and the locc motive rushing f orward at full speed, (.lushed into the wreck and tore through the derailed cars until it was thrown upon its side. The Vlob iu Fall Control. The crow 1 mounted the wreck with exultant cheers and held high carnival until toe fcrce of deputies prepared to Af tney came on the run they met with shower of stones and 4e'r-ag pins and halting, opened lire. .Tut' a moment the mob wav ered as the bullets cut their the ranks, and then with a howl they charged the little force of deputies, which retreated to a safe distance to await reinforcements. Police details were hurried to the scene, and the riot ers continued the derailing of cars while waiting for the expjected attack, care fully concealing the dead and injured men. The idle mob resumed its work of de struction at the stock yards this morning. In the vicinity of Forty-third street and Ashland a.'enuo cars were overturned, switch ehj.nues burned and switches tampered v--:t ;i. The police and deputies effected li'tl3 restraint upon the lawless throng. Tacre were no federal troops in the neighborhood. ..lilliiK With Fire Wire. The interference with the fire and po lice alarm --olographic system was anew and dangerous feature of the riot today and the oBicrs were, ordered to arrest aty oue caught in this kind of work.

General Manager Alien said today the Rock Island road would not at tempt to move any trains today. This applied to both freight .and passenger traffic, ! The Rock Island officials today closed all their ottices and locked them up. Ail their clerks and otiice men were sworn in as U. S. deputies. A mob broke open three cars loaded with general freight on the Wabash tracks at -iota street early today and were raided by the police and eleven rioters were arrested. There are now massed on the lake front Ave companies of the fifteenth infantry, live of various regiments from Fort Leavenworth and two from Brady, troop K,' seventh cavalry and battery E first artillery about 000 officers and men. Gen. Miles today said the mobilization of the regular troops ou the lake front was prompted by a beliet that their presence near the business center of the city was necessary. The idea was to fore stall all concerted movements on the part of the strikers against prjminent down town buildings. jt'o-ii eriut; load Carcasses. One of the most serious aspects of the strike from the standpoint oi the city officials is that horses art1 living in the city from 00 to 100 a day and there is abso lutely no way of removing them. For some days a train of these carcasses has stood at Thirty-eighth street on the Michigan Southern tracks, consigned to the I'an Handle road, wh.ch is to carry them to the establishment of the Union Rendering company. 1 he carcasses are festering in the sun and the health of the community is seriously threatened. The same is true in other localities, where these carcasses are left because the city cannot remove them. At tho stock yards today there seemed to be no attempt to bring iu any live stock and the total receipts consisted of three wagon ioads of lambs and two cows from the adjacent farms. The train of cattle r-ent out yesterday on the Michi gan Central and over hich was such a ttruggie was returned to tiie yards and all attempts at shipment will be abandoned.

This morning three mail trains on the Fort Wayne road were sent through the district between Forty-lift h and Fifty fifth streets, where the blockade ex isted yesterday. During the night the freight cars that had I eon dumped across the track were removed and the trains were sent out without trouble. P.irt of the mob charged a gang of work men engaged in icing meat cars at 45th street under t-uperviaion of Alderman Carey. 11-3 showed the men a permit from Debs allowing sucu work to be done and the rioters b it.

Tweufy-one freight cars are reported burning on the Fort Wayne tracks at 55th street by tiie mob. The conference of labor leaders called by President Debs today, was attended by representatives from every union in tho city. The tone of the talk was stroneiy in favor of sup port in ? the strike. An engineer ou tho Rjck Island, who was reported to be stoned to death, is said to have had several ribs broken, but to be still living. His name is Grogau.

When asked for a statement of the situation from the posi tion of the United States army, Gen. Miles said: "If the order of Mayor Hopkins is carried out there will in my opinion, be no further trouble. It is a plain and unmis takable order to the police to suppress all rioting, disperse all mobs, and to stop the destruction of property. If the police do this, and I believe they can, there will be no further trouble any where iu the city." 'Do you anticipate that this order will be carried out?" "Most certainly. I believe that not only has Mayor Hopkins taken the right step, but he will be obeyed, and the po- ; lice will use all their power to quiet these I disturbances. We are certainly not doing j police duty for the city of Chicago and ! until the police fail we cannot be expec ted to disperse these mobs except when we come in contact with them in protec ting moving trains. Our action now de pends upon the roads and our troops are here to protect them and when they are ready to move them we are ready to pro tect them." SIirATION AT DENVER.

Vou took occasion a few weeks ago in a judi cial proceeding iu your court to which neither myself or any member of the stale administra tion was a party, to denounce the present state administration as composed of "imbeciles anil anaicliisis." The events upon winch vou com mented have passed into history and "the state administration can well abide the verdict which the future will pass upon the acf criticised. Without clanu inir that tiie state administration has made no mistakes, it has faithfully attempt ed to sustain law and order aud to protect the lives aud liberties of the people. It has sought to prevent sheriffs from organ izing private armies to overawe the jeopie. It has sol l i 1 1 1 to prevent anarchy, and permit me to say mat the most dauLrerous "anarchy" in the state of slorado has been that of the Uni ted Mates court in Denver, which lias allowed the Vuued Slates marshal to enlist a private army to suppress aliened state troubles, of which neither the coumy or state authorities had any notice, aud has called into active service Timed States troops without rciuesi of or not.ee lo the iroveriior of the state, and is wa-ini; actual war m Colorado w ithout any declaration thereof by the 1'uiicd Stales or notice or knowledge thereof by the slate authorities and in utter viola lion of law, When it was deemed necessary to eatl out military force the state administration culled out ilie national guard the reutar citizen soldiery, whose loyally to order and law cannot I,, questioned.

At 2:30 this after noon a passenger train on tho Baltimore & Ohio which had been held in South Chicago all night was started for the city under the guard of several deputy marshals. At Forty-third and Ash streets it was met by a mob which got on train and at the same time poured iu volley after volley of stones. The trainmen aud dep uties at once returned the lire and for throe minutes a lively fusilade was kept up. Four of the strikers were hit and were carried off by their friends. None of the trainmen were hurt, and tiie train pro ceeded to the depot without further in terruption. It was reported later that at least tour strikers were killed iu the fight aud several others injured. A short time after the train had ar rived at the depot tiie through train for Isew York pulled out and was compelled to stop at 3!Kh street by a long line of blazing" cars which had been fired by the strikers. Several cars had also been thrown across the track and were set on fire. The train was compelled to return to the depot. At West Pullman this afternoon a mob of twenty men came over from Pullman, ordered the telegraph operator to close his oilice, drove him out aud turned over a lot of boxcars and blocked the Pan Handle road. ENGINEERS TO ACT. Lake Shore Men Want an Objection able Rule Rescinded. Cleveland, July G. It is learned that the grievance committee of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers on the Lake Shore road, went to Chicago for the purpose of obtaining a conference with President ZSewell, who is in the city. The engineers' business in connection with the rule which was sometime atro put in force by the Lake Shore virtually holding engineers responsible for any pecuniary ioss resulting from accidents in cases where the company considers the engineer negligent in duty. The engineers will ask to have this rule rescinded. The result of the con ference is awaited with much interest, as it may have an important bearing on the present strike. OLXET OS ALTGKLU. Says the Idea of State Rights Was Settled In the War. Washington, July G. Attorney Gen eral Oiney was today questioned as to his views "of the Altgel 1 letter to the president lie said: "It is hardly worth while to discuss at length the false prem ises and tho illogical uon-sequiturs of the Altgeld manifesto. As a campaign platform, it is a safe prediction that the author will be found to be the only per son to stand upon it. Tho soil of Illinois is the soil of the United States and for all United States purposes the United States is there with its courts, its marshals aud its troops, not by license or comity, but as of right. The paramount duty of the president of the United States is to see that the laws of the United States are faithfully executed and io discharge of thnt duty he is not' hampered or crippled by the necessity of consulting any chief of police, mayor, or even governor. "In the present instance nothing has been done and nothing ordered which the moet captious criticism can condema as any invasion of state rights. The action of the national executive ha3 been simply and exclusively directed to the enforcement of the United States laws, the execution of the orders and the processes of U nited States courts and the prevention of any obstructions of the United States mails. The notion that the territory of any state is too sa cred to permit the exercise thereon by the United States government of any of its legitimate functions, never had any legal existence, and as a rule of conduct became practically extinct with the close of the civil war." 1894. IT REACHES CLEVELAND, Complete Tlenp of all the Railroads Kun nltiy Into That City. Cleveland, O., July 6. Slowly but surely the great railroad strike is sweep ing eastward. After an all night's ses sion of the members of the A. It. U. in which every road running into the city was represented it was decided at au early hour this morning to tie up every line centering in Cleveland. By 7 o'clock the Big Four yards were report ed dead with the exception of an occa sional passenger train. The night men had quit and the day men failed to appear for duty. A like condition of off airs prevailed on the Cleveland, Canton Sc Southern road where work ceased at an early hour aud the yards were silent as the grave. As soon as the long session of the A. IU U. came to an end, numerous commit tees were started out in all directions to notify the men in the numerous yards to quit work. At b o'clock the Lake Shore men struck. Out of 4t yard crews and engines, on that road in this city, only one engine was working, and the men said they had not yet been notified. One or two passenger trains arrived and departed during the early morning hours, but as long freight trains were be ing constantly pulled into the yards and I deserted on the main track, it seemed I probable that a blockade would soon re ! suit. The Cleveland and Pittsburg men promptly stopped work when notilied to do so by the committee, and at b:b(J a. m. . only one crew out of thirty was at work. The men who struck are exclusively i switchmen, aud passenger trains will only be affected by freight blockades, j The engineers, firemen and trainmen will not go on the strike, but the train ' men say they will not even couple up 1 their own cabooses to trains that might I be made un. In other words they would ! perform none of the duties of the strik j ing switchmen. I Assistant United States Attorney Brins ! made the rounds early this morning, and informed of the morning news he said: i "I have received instructions from the j attorney general of the United States j to file a bill praying for an in junction it it is absolutely necessary. 1 had hoped there would be no occasion for any proceedings in the United States court here, however it ap pears that measures have been adopted by the A. R. U. during the night, in this city, loookinir toward the prevention and I obstruction of the passage of the United i States mails and that the interstate com I inerce laws are being violated. I shall therefore) file a bill in the circuit court here in obedience to my instructions from the attorney general at once, or as soon as the names of the parties respon , Bible can be learned." almost to rirrsutiRG.

All the through passenger trains from the west were delayed this morning, the only trains arriving being those made up at Fort Wayne and Columbus. In this city the situation is more alarm ing than at anytime siuce tho strike was inaugurated iu the west. the men on the C. & P. road are expecting orders to go out, but the prospect of striking has not been received with enthusiasm by the railroaders.
