STRIKE IS' ENDED On Erie, Dig Four, Lake Shore an a Other Roads. Grosscup Compels Milchrist to Return JJrbs' Letters. Chicago, July 11. The general strike which wis tj have been inaugurated last night to forte arbitration of the Pullman failed to materialize today. Througiiojt the city this morning there was lit lie evidence of the business paralysis wLich has been so confidently predicted by the labor leaders. Every street car 1 no in the city was running, the elevated roads carried the usual number of trains and the early morning crowds of worki.ngmen on the way to their shops and benches seemed undi minished. Of ad the trades which had threatened a a'rike. the seamen, the ciji armakers and iho carj enters were the only unions which aigu.lie 1 their intention of stop ping Bur,;, today. Reports from these trajes were anxiously awaited, but their action one way r another, wa regarded as only a ir' p in tiie bucket. At 1 o'clock p. m. the threatened pen feral paralysis of labor of all sorts in Chi- a20, and the general walk-out of the II. of L. uud their sympathizers in all parts of tho country which were to have taken place this morning, have proven failures. In this city in the shops and factories, in the buiidng trades and in the lines of interurbaii travel, there are no signs of obedience to the order issued by the representatives of allied labor; not only that but the railroad lines centering here Show decided improvement in trallic. Passenger trauis.through local and sub urtan are n ovinia everywhere and their freight, business is assuming a normal condition. For the first time within a week train loads of live stock were re ceived at th-t fctock yards and other train loa ls if beef and hog products to the east w ere sent out in very considerable vol u me. Advices to the Associated Press from the great centers of population of the I'n. ted .State-, and from many of the less important c.ties, fail to show that the or der or request of Grand -.Master Work mau rjvereifji) has met with the slightest recognition by the members of thai order. From t he Paci.ic coast comes the in telligence tint this morning federal troops entered Sacramento unopposed. At this hour the situation at Oakland continues 1 1 be one of open revolt, but it is expected that order will be restored there witiion bloodshed. A d. spate l from leveland stated that a message si;;ued by Sovereign, saying: 'Do not strike, tee press reports,"' was received there. '1 he story that Graml Master Workman Sovereign of the Knights of Labor had wired his men at that place not to strike, is emphatically denied by lal or leaders. Secretary Simpson of the local union K. of L. Bait, that r. Sovereign had been privately i-i firmed of the Cleveland me-sage. "That telegram was a forgery." aid Secretary Simpson, "aud -Mr. Sover eign has aheidy forwarded a denial to Cleveland. There has been no counter mand of !af t night's order." Ill K. at I., strike it f allurfi. In spite if the statement that Sover eign did no; cll off the strike, it has up to thii tiiiH at least, beeu a dead flat failure, as the followiug Associated Press bulletins sh nw: Toledo--Up to 1 p. m. the K. of L. here paid to attention to Sovereign's ordr. Oniaha No strike had materialized here at II a. m. Indianapolis There are no K. of L. men here. Sovereign's order had no vis ible etfect. Columbus O. There are no Knights of Labor in Columbus. .New York--The request of Grand Master Workman Sovereign that all Knights of Labor quit work in sympathy with the Pi.Iiman strike has met with no response here. Knights assume that the address contains no mandate, and that therefore ttey may exercise their own discretion i l the premises. Cincinnati. District Master Workman Huffh Kav-iuaugh of the iinights of La bor, when asked today what" would be done here under the order of Grand .Mas ter Workman Sovereign, said the grand master had no authority to order a gen eral strike. All he could do was to ad vise and request it. The request would then go to the local assemblies for con sideration, and unless they agreed there ould be nu fctrike. Mr. Kavauaugh has not yet received official notice from Sov ereign, and until he does, no action whatever will be taken by the order in Cincinnati. Milwaukee The strike order fell flat in Milwaukee. Not one quit work. St. Joseph, Mo. -iNo strike here. St. Louis No K. of L. strike here up to 11 a. m. Fort Wayne, Ini. No K. of L. quit work here. Thero were many more dispatches sim ilar to the above. Working In the -Stork York. Switch engines were puffing around the stock yards today. Several meat trains were sent out and business was in a fair way to lie resumed on the usual footing. The Lake Shore company had an engine at work, and a switch train on the Wabash was running under com mand of Master Mechanic Jamieson, Superintendent Merrill and Trainmaster Balou. The yards switching company had three engines at work clearing away the wreckage that has blocked the tracks. Police and militia euarded the trains, but no violence was otfered. Morris received forty-two cars of cattle over tne Burlington and three over the Santa Fe. Two meat trains were started from the yards. Their departure was not hindered. Last night two hundred yard employes refused to load a meat train and the work was do,ie by new men. This morning the strikers told Superintendent Ashley that they did not intend to quit work permanently and asked to .be reinstated. '1 heir request was refused. G.and Trunk passenger trains carry ing Pullman cars passed through the yard district without molestation this morning. The men on the west division street and cable car Lues hel l a meeting this morning and decided not to strike. The i resident of the Team.-ters union claimed this morning that 1.500 of his men had gone on strike, but careful in quiry failed to verity this statement. 'l he wholesale stores reported their teaming go.ng on as usual and it was im possible to rind a striking teamster. 'lhe president ol tiia building trades counc.l says his order numbers 20,000 members and they will all quit work be fore Sat urday night Up to noon today there was no evidence that any of them had struck. The Seamen's union claims a member ship of lu,0 J' and all have been ordered to strike. At noon none had struck to amount to anything. The German BaKers' union No. 2 in 50 West side baite siiops, couiaiuing 800 members, met this morning and decided to go out. The journeymen Lorseshoers this morning postponed action on strike till tomorrow evening. uy -J, .TOO. After an exhaustive investigation cov ering practically every tit-Id of labor, the Chicago Kveuing Post finds thai 1,700 cigarmakers have struck, and that Hoi) German bakers will go out tonight. All other Hues of indmtry going on as usual. Limihoim, m aster wti k man of the X. of L. claims that there aro 10,000 K. of L. in this county. City Llectrician Barrett said this morn ing the prospects of having to close down the city electric light plant for want of fuel is apparently certain. The four city plants have been burning hard coal, slabs and other kinds of fuel for the last week. That supply is almost ex hausted. Trouble occurred this morning at the freight houses of the Burlington. A mess age was sent to the .Maxwell police sta tion by a representative of Marshall Field (k Co., which state 1 that their team sters were being intimidated. The po lice sent five ollieers to the freight houses and drove the crowd away. lhe Brewers' association held an im portant meeting last night. Their em ployers with whom they are on particu larly friendly terms told them the condi tion of affairs as they existed. Their men frankly declared they did not want to strike, but that if others went out they would be compelled to. As a result it was decided to close up tiie brevveries but to keep the men ou the payrolls. Then each brewery stored in it's vaults about the city enough of tiie fluid to keep it's saloons go.ng for some weeks. Col. Schatf ner reported to the mayor this morning that lie was in receipt of advices from his reserves ou the battle ship Illinois, that a mob was burning cars near Jackson Park. He a.-k-dthat his troops numbering :1J0 be aimed. At present they carry only side arms. The mayor referred him to Gen. Wheeler, w ho promised to arm t:ie command. At noon the mayor had investigated Col. Schaffner's report :md sta'ed that a mob had burned four freight cars be longing to the Burlington, near the World's fair grounds. Suveri(ii Not niaa p po I n teil. Referring to the threatened strike of the iv. of L., General Master Workman Sovereign said he was by no means dis apipoimed; that it was too early yet to say what action the unions would take. He declared he did not expect there would be any change in tho situation today. If the order issued by himself went in effect by SaLurdav night he would be satisued. Mnyor J'iuree LeiTPS Detroit. Mayor Pingree left Detroit last night to try to force the Pullman company to arb.trale. At noon the Ptillman people report that they have not seen him and the situation is likely to remain unchanged. Ibs" Frlvs PnpM, Judge Grosscup seat for Debs and also for District Attorney Milchrist todaj-. When both were before him he said: "1 understand from statements published in the newspaper that i m ug the books and papers of the defend mis there were private letters, some of which were still unopened. They want to know the truth about the matter." "It is true," said the district attorney, 'that the bocks and papers in Debs' of hce were seized by government officers and some of thorn are i nvate papers, hut since they came into tiie possession of the government, the p ipers have been locked up in the vauit in my oiiice and have not been iutei fared with by any one." "Mr. Debs." said the court, stands ac cused in this court of a grave crime, but he has all the rights of a private citizen. His private affairs are not to be inquir ed into, and if you , have in your posses sion any private papers or letiers or oth er documents of that character it is your duty to return them and without making any copies of them. If there is any question as to the character of the pa pers whether they are private or not, the district attorney will bring them before the court." -VJr. Milchrist said the officers who made the seizure had taken papers which they should not have seizeiL This was due, he said, to the excitement of the moment, and not to any desire to disregard private rights. The papers, Mr. Milchrist said, had not been copieL and had not been seen by any one since they were brought to his office. The sealed letters had not been opened. Debs said he was satisfied with the 6tat ment of the district attorney. 'I desire to thank the court," he said, '"for the kindness and consideration and the protection given me." The leader of the strike then accom panied Mr. Milchrist to the latter's office and the letters which were seized last night were given to him. All the books of the Kailway L'nion and the records rilling Beveral large baskets were kept for the use of the grand jury. ii C harge Aaiu lts. The indictments against Debs and the others were made public today. It is not a lenghty one and contaiua but one I charge that of interfering with the mails. The first proceeding for contempt against the strikers in the U. S. circuit cuun under the injunction issued by Judges Grosscup and Woods, has been begun by District Attorney Milchrist. , The defendant is D. M. Delozier, who is charged with interfering witn trains on the Santa Fe road in violation of the in junction. Affidavits were tiled alleging that, he had boarded several trains and endeavored to prevent employes from performing their duties. Mr. Sovereign was in consultation this morning by long distance telephone with General Secretary John W. Hayes, wuo with T. B. -tlcGuire and Guarles A. French, members of the executive cow- t mittee, are iu Washington. After the conference Air. Sovereign said: "Pro ceedings will be commeuced in Wasn ingtou today under directions of the. ex ecutive committee d" the K. of L., who are iu that city to impeach Attorney Gen eral Oiuey." Mi. Sovereign did not think the pro ceedings would be hroug-ht through an appeal to congress, but in what manner he could not say. He added: "If it were the president, congress would be the only way, but with a caoiuet oliicer it is dilferent. We have the be5f legal advice iu Washington, and the petition against the anoruey general lias been drawn up and is ready lor tiling." Will I.-uo is'o M .re. Order. President Debs, when seen today, said he had issued no further orders and ex pected to issue none. "The matter is en tirely out of my hands now," he said, "and I have nothing more to a ay. lhe leaders of the labor organizations have ordered strikes, not t my request, and they are handling the affair. That the general strike will be successful I have no doubt. It makes no difference if iho roads can run trains; they .vill have no freight to carry with the general tieup of business in effect." laate of the Deluy. The halting attitude of the strike lead ers is explained by themseives to be due to the fact that everything is to bo settled tomorrow at a big meeting at the Briggs house. The meeting is being arranged by Samuel (jumpers, president of the American Federation of Labor. lhe military forces guarding the gov ernment building were strengthened to day. A Hotchkiss tield gun, its muzzle pierced by eight small bores was trained to command the approach to the building from either Clark or Jackson streets. 0-n-r.l Mainifnrii, loo. It is reported that when the federal grand jury coucludes its investigation of the A. 11. U. it will begin an inquiry in to the policy and methods of the general managers' association. Among the lead ers of the workiugmeu the charge has been made openly and repeatedly that the obstruction of the United States mails and the interruption of interstate commerce was due quite as much to the general managers as to the A. R. U. It has been alleged that the managers agreed that no trains should be run on any of the roads until all had gained their points in dispute with the men. This was doue, it was charged to hold back such companies as had any inclina tion to treat with the employes and bring about a resumption of traffic ou its line. It is asserted by the men that they can prove that telegrams were sent out from the general managers' association order ing certain lines not to -end out trains un til a designated scheme had been ac complished. All this, the men insist, is a clear case of conspiracy on the part of the general managers as the acts of Debs and his associates. Judge Grosscup aud Milchrist have said that justice will be meted out impartially to all violators of the federal statutes. No more men will be brought to Chi cago by the General Managers' associa tion to take the place of strikers. Gen eral Manager Eijau said today: "Eitrly last week the General Managers' associa tion engaged ,5jo competent men iu all departments of railroading and has distributed them among the various roads. In addition to these the roads have them selves engaged many and brought them here direct from the east. Fully 3.000 men have taken the places, of railroad strikers iu Chicago." IT HAKKUIS BLOOD BOIL. G'noriil Danial Sickle 3Iwl Iicue More l'pl Wr X K. Washington, July 11. "Ii makes my bloo i boil," remarked Gen. Daniel E. Sickles, "to hear of tue indignities aud insults heaped upon the soldiers sent to Chicago in the interest of law and order. While I endorse most unqualifiedly, the action of the president, there is one cause for criticism iu this deplorable busiuess, and that is the dilatormess which has prevailed since the strike began. "Mobs cannot be put down by procla ination or injunctions and when the troops are sent to a scene of disoider they should have instrueiions to shoot upon the commission of the tirst overact. Nothing will cause a stampede of rioters quicker than a dose of steel aud hot lead, but wheu a mob gets the idea into their heads that troops are sent for show and not for action they are very apt to take advantage "of the situation. "What should Lava been done at tid very outset of this disturbance was the arrest of Debs and his incarceration un der guard at Fort Sheridan. No com munication should have been permitted with him and no bonds accepted for hia good behavior. He should have been held as a hostage as a protection of inno cent people and his misguided followers, as well aa the preservation of law and order. -'Had the head of a snake been cut off the tail would not have caused much trouble. Gen. Miles served under me during the rebellion, and I know the stuff of which he is made. It is not in his na ture to act in a dilatory manner when the opposite side is desirable, and had his hands not been tied in some myste rious manner he would have settled the strike problem as soon as its head was reared. "Prompt action by 500 regular troops last Tuesday would have done as much good in fact, would have been more beneficial than the mere presence of 5,000 troopa in Chicago today. A ahow of force is not all that is necessary in such an emergency as this, but rioters must be taught a salutary and lasting lesson. These are my sentiments, and no temporizing should be tolerated." THE FIRST ISLAWFIL ACT. CommltleJ by the S rilmri at Lo A n ge- 1 ImppdiDg Trnffic. Los Angeles, July 11. The first un lawful act that lias been committed by strikers in this city since the day the boycott was declared here was perpetra ted last night when forty or fifty men walked to u point near the Sau Fer nando depot aud threw a box car across the tracks of the Southern Beach com pany with the evident intention of im peding traffic this morning. Two other box cars were run off the track. WANTED TO KILL, WICKE4. A Man Wlih an Infernal Arresleil. MucUine ! Chicago, July 11. An attempt was made ou Monday afternoon by a man whose name the police will not divulge, to kill Vice President Wickes, of the Pullman company, with an infernal machine. The man entered the building carry ing a small bundle under his arm. lie asked to see Mr. Wickes aud was con ducted to his office, where the special officers who guard the buildiug quietly took his bundle away. It was found to be a gl.iss bottle with a fuse attached and filled with cart ridges, irou scraps aud a substance un known to the ollieers. Tiie bottle was contiscated and the man taken out of the building. Today an aualysis of the sub stance iu the bottle was made, and it was found to be a dangerous explosive, which would explode with great violence upon the application of a gentle heat.

What would be doue wheu such notice received, be declined to predict Later The meeting adopted a resolu tion expressing sympathy with the Chi cago strikers and offering help if it is wanted. Secretary Donovan said that this was much better than to order a sympathy strike. DOKSXT MEAN A ftKNKKAL STRIKE Officer of llie K. of I-.Kxpliii Sovereign S r ke O. iler. Wasdingtox, July 11. Messrs. J. W. Hayes, general secretar3 T. B. McGuiro and C. A. French of the executive board of the Knights of Labor arrived here last night on business unconnected with the strike. McGuire said they were here partly for the purpose of working up an interest in the bill recently introduced in the senate by Mr. George of Misssis sippi which provides for compulsory ar bitration. From statements made by the mem bers of the board the strike appeal of Grand Mifster Workman Sovereign con templates a progressive strike and not a universal one. "The press order of Mr. Sovereign," Messrs. Hays and McGuire said, "applies to Chicago, and was issued by Mr. Sovereign on the application of the local labor unions. It applies to no other place than Chicago. It does not contemplate a gen eral strike, and Mr. Sovereign has not the authority to orde- such a strike ex cept by the consent of a majority of the executive board of the Knights of Labor. If the labor assemblies in other cities want to go on stride, they cau do so by virtue ot the appeal of Mr. tovereigu, but the present order has reference merely to Chicago." JOHN T. WILSON'S CIKCILAK. He Did Not Intend It lo Ke Printed for Gen-ral Circul it Ion. John T. Wilson, grand chief foreman of the Brotherhood of Railway Track Foremen of America, has written a let ter to the lodge in Topeka, in which he says that the Circular recently published by the general managers of railroads over'hi- signature, advising members of the order to keep out of the A. li. U. was printed without his consent. In hia letter he says: "I want it dis tinctly understood that I intended that the circular should be received and read by members oaly and if any of them have been received by railway managers it was without my knowledge or authority."

This Seems to be the Prevail ing Opinion Among Many Delegates at the Convention. The Second district Republican con gressional convention in session at Law rence started out this morning as though it meant business, but it soon drifted back to the old "Xo choice, no change," which had charactized the the announce ment of the 11)00 ballots taken up to to day's session. The convention held but a short ses sion when it convened at 4:30 o'clockyes terday afternoon. The first ballot Taken the 881st re sulted as follows: Funston 40, JSuchan a8, Howard 21. Smart 14, Parker 13. After the 914th ballot the convention adjourned to 8 p. m.. and when it recon vened the balloting was continued with out change up to tue luUOih ballot, when an adjournment was taken until 8 o'clock this morning. Most of the delegates spent the night in caucusing and the Jonnson county de legation was not long iu doing some thing. After it had been in caucus but a short time the delegates announced that tney had decided to no longer fctick to the anti-Funstou compact which they signed. Ihis action released all the other dele gations from the compact and it was ex pected would result iu a nomination on the first or second ballot this morning. Tne Buchan backers were made very mad, when they learned wiiat the John son county delegates had agreed to do. There was a great doal of swearing in the Wyandotte county headquarters, and several members of the delegation (three) said right out that they now pro posed to vote for Funston. Kuchan protested, and his supporters protected, but the three delegates de clared ttiey would vote for Funston for the nominat ion. aud would then organ ize an anti-Fuuston campaign and beat him at the polls. This occurred at 2 o'clock, and a per sonal encounter between tho two factions of tho delegation was narrowly averted by tho adjournment of the caucus. Immediately after breakfast this morn ing this delegation held another coucus, and remained in their headquarters until a half hour after the time lor the con vention to convene. Mr. Buchan got in his work, and tho delegation continued to vote solid for him when they went back to tho opera house. In the meantime Buchan had gone be fore the delegations from Douglas, Franklin and Johnson counties with a proposition that they defeat Funston by selecting a Wyandotte county man, he being willing that the other counties should name the man. Douglas county positively refused to be a party to such procedure, but the Johnson and Franklin county delegations showed by their votes when the conven tion met that they had beeu seen by Mr. Buchan. On the 1003rd ballot the first change came when Frauklin county was called; instead of casting her twelve otes for Smart as she had done since the begin ning, her twelve votes went to J. K. Cub bUou of Wyandotte county. Johnson county followed by changing her eleven votes which had beeu going to ParKer aud giving them to Cubbison. Wyandotte county was listened for with great interest and it was a great disappointment when her thirty votes wore announced for Buchan as before. Aiiami county continued to give two votes to Smart, even after Franklin county had gone to Cubbison, and Frank lin county alter six or seven ballots changed back to Smart. Johnson also left Cubbison and went back to Parker, leaving the vote as it was at the beginning The Wyandotte county friends of Cub bison were afraid to vote for him, fear ing that the other faction would go over to Funston, which would start the A len county farmer's wheel roiling towards victory. . Mr. Funston still insists that ho will be nominated, .and it was expected his nomination would be made before noon today, but those who expected it wtfre disappointed. Up until last night there had been the best of feeling between the delegates, but after tho auti-Funston agreement was broken many of the delegates began to show signs of getting mad, and today, while they smiled on the convention floor, they scowled in the lobbies unii many threats of revenge were indulged in. What the convention will do is still problematic except it is well understood that Buchan never will be nominate. L An acceptable dark horse has not yet been found and it looks aa though the prediction made yesterday to a Static Journal reporter by Farmer Funston tha he will either be nominated or the contention will adjourn sine die, will be f ud Ued. Later w From Lwreno. Law KKNCis, July 11. Ou the 1006th ballot in lhe Republican congressional convention Franklin and Johnson coun ties voted fr Charles F. Scott aud he got 29 votes. This continued till three bal lots were taken, and then Frauklin, John son and some scattering votes went to Smart, giving him iiu. On the 1012th ballot Wyandotte county made the first break since the convention began and gave Barnes three votes. Ha had tit others from FranKlin and Johnson. On the next ballot Barnes lost all but three. The vote wad then Fuustou 3d; Buchan '61; Parker 11; Smart 1!; Howurd I'-: 1 ; 3. The convention theu adjourned p. m. uritiKi) T.Vif Ii:oPij:.
