Last Night's Deeds of Destruc tion and Blood. Thousands of Freight Cars Burned by Eioters. OYEii A MILLION LOSS. Six Strikers Were Shot Dead, Large Numbers Wounded. An Overwhelming Force Nec essary for Peace. Chicago, July 7. Six dead and an indefinite number of injured is the record of casualties in the strike con fiicts in Chicago yesterday. Last nig-ht with flaming: torch law less hordes of fire-bug's were at work at a score of points in the Bouth half of Chicag-o. Fires were rag-irigr ia every direction among' the numerous railroad yards, hundreds of cars and tens of thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise have already rone up in smoke or been carried off by the frenzied mob of rioters. Incendiarism was rampant, alarm after alarm followed in quick succes sion all day and night and at 11 o'clock the glare reflected from the heavens showed that the dastardly pastime continued unabated. From early morning1 until midnig-ht reports cf fresh fires followed each other with, startling- rapidity, being1 confined, however, principally to railroad roll ing1 stock and building-s, against which thus far the greater part' of the mob's fury has been directed. Early yesterday morninj a blaze started among some overturned curs at Kensington, quickly communi cating to other tracks lillod with long lines of cars, many containing- valua ble merchandise, were soon blazing furiously. Fanned by strong winds, there were at this point a total of eighty cars -wiped out. At the stock yards one blaze after another was re ported, and from the outlying dis tricts came urgent calls for engines and police protection, increasing ia frequency. Climax of the Fiery Carnival. But with the falling shades of nisrhi came the climax of the fiery festival. The Panhandle yards from Fifty-fifth to Sixty-third streets, eight blocks, were a mass of fire. Ten tracks con taining from 1,000 to 2J)0 cars, half of them loaded, were a total loss. No water being at hand the lire had to burn itself out. The Panhandle station at Sixty third street was also tired an 1 de stroyed. The Grand Trunk yarls at Elston was a sea of flame. Five hun dred box cars are supposed to have been burned, and efforts to check the flames were futile. At midnight all the cars in the yards had been destroved. The mob showed much method in its inefndiar ,sm ami hundreds of cars were rilled and their contents carried away before the torch was applied. The loss in this yard is estimated at SI. 2 J'KOOO. The flag shanties and other railroad property were burned, and no water, except from one plusr at Fiftv-tirst street, could be obtained. Wui e di rect. ncr the movenv-nt of X.he V, t-venth battallion at this point Fire Marshal Fitzpatrick v.ms seized bv the thor oughly frenzied mob of "are-bug -i n n 1 thrown into a pon 1. from wiiica ie wa rescued by the poiic? more i a I thnn alive. Ev-rrth nr at this no nt will prohibly be i total loss. I'irea In I lif tocl yards Iitr!et. At II;. de park, near the world's fair g-roun is the ashes of forty cars are no - smouldering an I after numerous t-fforts the mob succeeded in bring the Illinois Central shops at Jiurn sidi s At the stock yards about r00 toughs, few of whom were railroad men, were skulking fro n pj:ut to point and set a large number of fires. Their method was thorough Ly unique. Loading several hand cars with buckets of waste and od, they would g-lide around among the cars in the darkness, lighting wads of the stuff which would be thrown into the open doors of the cars as they passed by them. Fires sprung up on every hand and no organized effort on the part of the police seemed to be under way to intercept them. This is the. banner district of the cit- if not of the entire country for all around toughs, and it is as much as a man's life is worth, to interfere with them. Miles of I'roprrty Destroyed. The aggregate of the losses to the railroads will be enormous. Miles of their tracks have been ruined by the fierce heat; hundreds of switch and signal towers with their expensive mechanism are utterly ruined. Thousands of cars and untold quan tities of merchandise of every imagin able description have fed the flames and gorged the larders of thieves; valuable locomotive's have been wrecked and disabled; miles of tangled wires and prostrate poles lit ter the ground. Only one residence has been burned thus far as a direct result of the, in cendiaries work, and that one iu the stock yards district, and business buildings have escaped altogether, but the wanton destruction of railway property continues unchecked and with increasing destruetiveness. To illustrate the tactics resorted to by the incendiaries to hamper the work of the firemen," empty car tridges were forced into the keyholes of the fire alarm boxes, firemen were knocked down with stones and bricks, and while working at the fires the horses of the department were stolen. An Overwhelming Force XeeileJ. The developments so far have led to the firm conviction that nothing short of an overwhelming1 armed I j force with instructions to shoot to ! kill can settle the trouble, or, as Colo I nel Crofton put it, "it has ceased to be a mere movement of troops, and has become a campaign." The local and state authorities have awakened to the critical gravity of tke situation which is affecting the nation generally and Chicago particu larly, and are taking steps to apply adequate measures. The city police force has already been recruited up to 3,000 men, and by request of Mayor Hopkins and by order of Governor Altgeld, two brigades of state militia have been ordered to aid in quelling the disturbances. Washington Authorities Alert. At the nation's capitol also the fact is recognized that the prevailing con ditions are entirely out of ordinary, and that provision must be made for such a massing of fighting men as has never before been seen together in the history of this nation in time of peace, if the authority and dignity of the government and the processes of its courts are not to be laughed to scorn lor an indefinite time. The strike infection is widespread, and so menacing at many points that the president and his advisers believe it would be unwise to withdraw any more regular troops from the country west of Chicago. It is, therefore, in contemplation should the forces, federal, state and municipal, already gathered here be unequal to the task of restoring order to send here the ten companies sta tioned oi the Canadian border in the state of New York, with the reserved intention if circumstances demand it of exercising his right to call for 20,000 from the crack militia compan ies of New York and Pennsylvania. The movement of Trains. In general the order of things, com pared with that of Thursday was re versed. Then th3 railroads were try ing to break the blockade by sending trains out. Yesterday they recognized the futility of that method of proced ure, and practically gave up any at tempt at outward movement. But there were some incoming passenger trains on several of the roads, togeth er with a few of the regular milk trains. Between these classes of traf fic the strikers managed to make trouble for nearly every road running in a southerly direction. The Fort Waj-ne, the Lake Shore, the Michigan Central, the Baltimore & Ohio, the Il linois Central, the Alton, the Panhan dle, the Western Indiana, the Rock Island, the Monon, all experienced difficulty in a greater or less degree at some time during the day. The trick of scaring a crew from a train, cutting the engine up the track, opening the throttle and letting it run back full tilt on the standing train was a new one, and of a charac ter likely to be imitated. The ston ing of incoming trains was a common pastime with the mobs, and several persons (vers more or less injured by liying missiles. Deputies Shoot to Kill. The assaults of the mobs, however, were not met with the passive re sistance which characterized the course pursued Thursday. On two occasions, at least, their attacks were met with accurately aimed lead. During a riot over an incoming milk train at Ivensington a deputy United ; States marshal shot and killed two strikers and during the afternoon the deputies guar.l'ng an incoming Balti more and Ohio passenger train re plied to the volley of shots and stones which the strikers showered upon th m by turning their revolvers loose, killing- four of their assailants and wounding a number of others. A new and j4-r;ivo feature was added to the situation wnen a meeting of representati ves of all the bodies of organized labor in the city, after a protracted discussion, in which a gen eral sympathy strike was favored, ap po'nteJ a committee of three with full power to act, and at the same time called a meeting of al! organized laoor for next Sunday to ratify their act on. Ot th? situation in general, it may be said to have been broadened and strengthened in its grip. The most" significant feature of it is the carry ing; of the strike enst to Cleveland, tieing up all the connections of the seaboard trunk lines there with the promise that by to-day. it will reach the trunk Lnes themselves and so practically resell the Atlantic sea board by tieing up the railroads at Buifalo. Thus, the strike would be extended from ocean to ocean. There is no notable relief at the points heretofore placed under em bargo. The Pacific coast remains in paralysis, from which their is no indi cations of relief, and a significant note comes from Seattle, Wash., where tlie stevedores were called out by the chief of the Knights of Labor to pre vent the unloading of a steamer from San Francisco, indicating that Grand Master Workman Sovereign's promise to Debs to aid him in every possible way was not merely for effect. The day closed with no rift in the pall which overhangs the nation. THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR. Grand Master Woricruau Sovereign May Call I lie iu All Out. Chicago, Jul3' 7. Grand Master Workman Sovereign of the Knights of Labor arrived in Chicago yesterday from Des Moines. He said he had come to Chicago to render what as sistance he could to the American Railway union and ha should do whatever the officers of that organiza tion might determine would best serve the interests of the strike. He thought the ultimatum of the move ment was aboii reaehed, and it was important that every labor organiza tion should put in its best blows to win the strike. He added: "As regards the walk-out on the part of the members of all trades union? in the city, I will say that I think it might bring about great good. Certainly it would force upon the people a stronger realization of the necessity of the settlement of these struggles, and the populace would rise en masse in a demand for arbitration. The Knights of Labor are with the American Railway union heart and soul and I know that what ever I do now to aid the strikers will be fully and heartily indorsed by the 150.000 members of the organization." During the afternoon President Debs sent out a large number of tele grams to various labor organizations and assemblies of the A. R. U-, urging them to stand firm for at least twenty-four hours longer. If by that time the strike situation has not improved for the better Mr. Debs announced organized labor all over the country will be called out without any reserva tion whatever. At a meeting of the representatives of all the trades unions held at Ulhich's hall yesterday, it was de cided to issue the following: Resolved, That all labor organizations meet not later than 5und3y, July 8. lw, to select a committee of three members whom they su ill dele ate absolute power to act In their judgment shall be conducive to the suc cess of the strike now beinir conducted by the A. K. TJ. in the cause of humanity. Every industry in Chicago had rep resentation at the conference. Vice President Howard said more trades were included in the attendance than he had ever seen before. CLEVELAND TO ALTGELD. The President Says It's Time for Action and Not Discngslon. Washington; July 7. The watchful ness of the officers of the administra tion here continued unabated last night. Attorney General Olney, Sec retary Gresham, Secretary Lamont and General Schofield reached the White house shortly after 8 o'clock and renewed their conference, which, has been practically continuous since July 3. Frequent communications from General Miles and others at the scene of the trouble were received and the officials were also kept in formed of the situation by bulletins of the Associated Press. Another communication was re ceived from Governor Altgeld shortly before 9 o'clock. It was taken imme diately to the president, and consid ered by the conference. The letter came over the wire to the White house and occupied a con siderable time in transmission. It was nearly midnight when the fol- lowing reply of President Cleveland was given to the press: Executive Mansion, Washington. July 6. 1J. Hon John P Altgeld. Governor of Illinois. Sprin.-fl-ild, III : While I am still persuaded that I have neither transcended my authority nor d-aty In the emergency that confront ui. Ii seems to me that in this hour of danger and public distress discussion may well Kive way to active effort on the part of ail authority to restore obedience to the law and to protect life and property. AT KANSAS CITY. Burlington Switchman Go Out Move ment of Passenger Trains. Kansas City, Mo., July 7. The changes of the local aspects of the great railway strike are decidedly for the worse. Not only did the men already out show no signs of intend tending to resume work, but they were also joined by the entire forces of the Kansas City, Fort Scott and Memphis and ten men constituting the night force of the Hannibal and St. Joseph. The Memphis men went out early in the morning, and that road is com pletely tied up. Ten passenger trains arrived and thirteen departed from the union de pot after 6 o'clock last night. The Rock Island sent out a freight train last night, first since Saturday. Several of the passenger trains on the different roads are coming in with out Pullmans. The Alton had one train from the East yesterday with out Pullmans. The Wabash had no trains in or out. The Rock Island has closed its offices here and entirely suspended operations. SITUATION AT MOBERLV. Several Persons Arrested Charged With interfering With the MaiU. Mobkrlv, Mo., July 7. Thirty-six men were brought from St. Louis yes terday. They are to take the place of strikers. . Sheriff Dameron swore in about 100 deputy sheriffs. Deputy United States Marshal Quayle has sworn in four deputies. Mr. Quayle arrested four strikers and J. A. McCurry, a furni ture man, K. A. Willott. proprietor of a barber shop, James Hackley. a well known traveling man and politician, on a charge of interfering with the mails and they were taken to Han nibal. A train which has been standing i here since Monday night went north ! with Engineer Barclay and an im- 1 ported fireman yesterday. A train rived from Kansas City yesterday. Engineer Brookins started out, but when he came to the railroad cross- 1 ing, a mile south of the depot, a ganjr j of boys who had been playing ball i came running across the field. The green fireman, who had come from j Kansas City, fell out of the window, ; bursting his head. Brookins backed up his eDgine and there left it. IK MISSOURI. Governor Stone Will See That Disturb ances are Quelled. Jefferson City, Mo., July 7. Gov ernor Stone last night received a dis patch from Moberly from the sheriff of Randolph county, which, read: "All quiet here. Wabash company moving its trains." Adjutant General J. A. Wickbam was ordered to Mo berly. He will investigate the situa tion there and report to the governor at once. The assistant attorney gen-' eral will go to Moberly to assist the prosecuting attorney of Randolph county in prosecuting strikers and others for interfering with the mov ing of trains. The wires have been kept hot be tween the executive office and all threatened points in the state. The police boards of St. Louis, Kansas City and St. Joseph were instructed to notify the chief of police of each city to swear in as many extra police as may be deemed necessary to guar antee full protection to property, and to quell any disturbances. MACHINE KIT WILL STOP. Chicago Industrial Concerns Compelled to Close Down 100,000 Men Idle. Chicago, July 7- After to-dsy smokeless chimneys will give Chi cago's smoke inspectors nothing to look for. An exhaustive canvass of the industrial concerns of the city reveals an appalling state of affairs and warrants the statement that seventy-five per cent of them will stop their machinery and keep it so until the present embargo on traffic Is raised. The effect will be to throw into idleness upward of 100,000 work- DKBS TO THE STRIKERS. He Calls t'pon Them to Abstain From Acts of Violence. Chicago, July 7. President Debs has issued the following proclama tion: "To All Striking Employes: In view of the report of disturbances la various looalities, I deem it mv duty to cau tion you aeainst beln? a party to any violation of law, municipal, state or national, durlnsf the existing difficulties. We have repeatedly declared that we respect law and order, and our conduct must conform to our profession. A man who commits violence in any form, whether a member of onr order or not, should be promptly arrested and punished, and we (Should be first to apprehend the miscreants or brinr him to Justice. We must triumph as law abiding citizens or not at alL "The railroad managers have sought to make it appear that their trains do not move, because of the interference of the strikers The statement is an unqualified falsehood and no one knows this better than the mm aers themselves. They make this falsehood serve their purpose of calling out the trooas. 'Respect the law. conduct yourselves as be comes men and our cause shall be crowned with success EiGtm V. Dibs." KILLED BIT A WOMAN. A Striking Burlington Employe Shot by m Fireman's Wife. Chicago, July 7. Herbert Letters, a striking C. B. & Q. employe, was shot and instantly killed by Mrs. William J. Lehmann. Lehmann took the place of a C. B. & Q. fireman who went on strike. Accompanied by his wife, he started to go to work. The couple met Letters who immediately entered into conversation with them, his ob ject being to persuade Lehmann to join the strikers. A fight ensued and Lehmann threw Letters down. Dur ing the tight Mrs. Lehmann stood looking on, but when she saw her husband struggling on the ground with his assailant she lost her self control and drawing his revolver from his hip pocket she fired a shot at the man. The bnllet struck Letters in the heart. He died instantly. NOT A WHEEL tCKNIXQ. The Southern Pacific Blockade Is Worse Than Eevr. San Francisco, July 7. The South ern Pacific company seems to be no nearer to the management of their road in California. The striking A. R. U. men still control the road. At Oakland the blockade is still complete, not even suburban and ferry trains running. At Sacramento, where lie situa tion is most serious, not a wheel is turning. At Los Angeles the situation is still practically unchanged. Sixteen strikers have been arrested for inter fering with the mails. STRIKE OFF AT SLATER. All Employes Have Reported for Work Freight Trains Moving. Siater, Mo., July 7. The strike is practically declared off at this di vision. The conductors, engineers and two-thirds of the brakemen have reported for work. It is thought that the firemen will go to work, provided the company will re-employ them. Two through freight trains were got ten out last night, one east and one west. Buffalo May Next Be Affected. Buffalo, N. Y., July 7. A tele gram has been received from Presi dent Debs by a sympathizer in the cause stating that the Buffalo mem bers of the American Railway union will be called out inside of twenty four hours. The railroad managers are growing a little nervous, though they profess ability to cope with the strikers. Pullman iiefuses to Talk. New Yokk, July 7. George M. Pull man declined to see reporters or to make any statement concerning the desire of Mayor Hopkins that he re turn to Chicago and arbitrate with -the strikers. Neither would he dis cuss the general situation. General Zanders Married. Leavenworth, Kan., July 7. Gen eral John Sherman Sanders, whose army of common wealers were recent ly sent to jail by Judge Thomas of the United States court sitting here, and Miss Etta Bell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
