ABOUT DEBS ARREST: He Says That Is Was an "In famous Outrage." Howard, .Keleher and Rogers Were Also Arrested. BAIL FOR 810,000 GIVEN All of Debs' Correspondence Seized and Confiscated. Chicago, July 11. The federal g-ra&d jury yesterday afternoon re turned indictments against Eugene V. Debs, president of the American Railway union; George- W. Howard, Its vice president; Sylvester Keleher, secretary, and L. W. Rogers, one of its directors, and shortly thereafter the men were arretted. They are charged with conspiracy to commit an unlawful act, that is, to block the progress of the Unit-id States mails. Joined in the indictment with the four leaders of the railway union was Tames M. Murwin, the Itoek Island striker who threw the switch which derailed a mail train at Blue Island on the nisrht of June .'!0. Debs, lloward, Keleher and Rog-ers were taken into the office of District Attorney Milehrist immediately after their arrest, and after a few hours de tention were released on bail by Judsre Grosscup, their bonds being 10,000 each. The bondsmn are Alderman Fitz gerald, who qualified to the sum of J50.000, and William Skakel, who qualified for 50,000. The federal grand jury spent but a short time on the ciise of Debs and the other leaders of the strike. The case against them for conspiracy had been prepared some days ag-o by Attorneys Milehrist and Walker, and the grand jurors had not been at work two hours when the indictment was ready to be presented in court. It was based on soma of tha public utterances of Debs and the other leaders, and this was clinched by the orig-inal ordars in writing sent out by Debs directing- men en the different railways to quit work, and this stopped the running- of mail trains. A large number of telegrams sent by Debs and from his headquarters, giving- directions which extended the blocade of the trains, were submitted to the grand jury by E. M. Mulford, manager of the Western Union tele graph company, und-ar a subpoena issued by the United States court. Judge Grosscup overruling the tele graph company's protest that tha messages were privileged documents and exempt from seizure. While the bail was being arranged Attorney John F. Greeting joined the r-arty in the district attorney's offlce. ie was retained" by thi railway union officers on Monday evening to assist in their defense in oase they were ar rested. Mr. Greeting-said the defense of the men will be d reeted by Clar ence S. Darrow. who is the attorney of the union. The inJ.ctment ajiiast Debs, Keleher, Howard, Rogers aal Murwin is founded on sections 5503 and 53116 and 553J of the federal stat utes. An Interview With Deb. While waiting for bail to be ar ranged, Debs, in an interview, said: "We have been placed under arrest to answer to an indictment found against us by the federal grand j-iry, in which we are accused of con spiracy to commit, and of com mitting, offenses against the United States by obstructing and interrupting the n.aUs of t4ie country. Our bail has been fixed at S10.0J3. We don't know when the case will come to trial, since I have been brought here, I have been in formed that otiicers of the court have gone to our headquarters in the Ash land block and taken my personal correspondence and some of the records of th A. R U. I do not know by what right this act has been committed. It seems to me to be an infamous outrage. Not only did they take my personal effocs and papers, , but carried away with them ray unopened mail. I have never heard of that before in this country, and I do not wish to peak further about it until X am in formed by what right the act was committed. In Russia, and not out of that country, have such things been done. It seems like the act of the czar of Russia, instead of the act of a free country. The seizure wa made by an oftfeer of the court and the postoftlce officials. I am not running- a lottery and I cannot understand under what law the postoffiee authorities are a party to the seizure of my pri vate mail. It is an outrage and you call this a free country. It seems to me not to be computable with the tars and stripes. It is no longer a question of right in this country, but a question of force and absolute force at that. "As to the arrest, I h ive absolutely nothing to say. We h ive not com mittee any offense or crime. We are responsible for our sets and will answer at the proper time and abide the consequences. The arrest will not deter us from our work. We will po on just exact ly as we have done. If we were to do differently it would be an admission we have been in the wrong. " District Attorney Mtlchrlst Talk. District Attorney Milehrist, when questioned about the seizure of the effects of Mr. Debs, said: "These men; were arrested on a si.bpoenie duces tecum, a perfectly legal operation, whereby they are commanded to bring with them everything apper. taining to their business. In this ca'e we have a corporation to deal with tha A. R. U. the effects of that organization can be brought Into court on a warrant of the kind issued to-day. These men were indicted as officers of their or ganizations for offenses committed as Fuch ofiicers. The records of the organization are subject to t:ie eom- i manr) of the" court. It is not an un- usual procedure in this court. Only recently when we were trying- the railroads for violation of the inter state commerce laws we issued the same process. "When the officers went to the office of the union none of the officials were there. " "Under the subpoena they had a right to take the effects of the organization, and did so. Mr. Debs will discover in due season the act was perfectly legaL I will say, however, that if" the officers of the .court; took any of Mr. Debs' private mail it will be returned to him unopened. The stuff is now locked up in the safe. Whatever there is of a personal nature will be returned, but I will say that no letter will be returned to Mr. Debs which is addressed to him as president of the A. R. U. Isone of the letters or documents or papers will be opened until an order is given bv the court, and they will b, kept in ,the safe until such an order is made. They are a part of tiie evidence of this court to be used in the trial if any-thins- should be found in them of a J criminating character in the line of dieted." DEFISIJfO CONSPIRACY.

Com pany C of the Fifth reg-ulars, com manded by Captain Conrad, came into collision with the mob at this place yesterday.and af terpatiently enduring volley after volley of stones, fired into the mob, killing- two men and wound ing- several others. The casualties are as follows: Killed. Dominick BAELMiR, Italian, shot through the head. John Siloc, Italian, shot through the breast. Wounded. Walter Gregory, deputy, ribs broken, badly bruised Lush Ko'.p deputy, shot in the thish S T. Powell deputy shot twice in face. Unknown Italian rioter shot by Powell Unknow n rioter, hand and arm badly lacer ated by bayonet while militia clearing- the streets The fig-ht occurred at 4:30 o'clock last evening when a Rock Island train bearing- the troops pulled into the depot. At the time of its arrival a larsre mob of Poles, Lithuanians and Huns were g-athered upon the hill overlooking- the depot. The arrival of the train was greeted with yells and jeers, and stones beg-an to rattle down on the depot platform before one of the soldiers had left the cars. As the men tiled out on the depot platform they were greeted with a chorus of yells and the stones rained down around them. Captain Conrod raised his hand and called to the mob to cease throwing stones. It obeyed him an instant, but, seeing- the troops remain passive, regained its vicious ness, and sent volley after volley of stones at the soldiers, at the same time drawing- closer and becom ing more threatening. Captain Con rad ordered his men to aim, and as more stoues came at the regulars he gave the word to fire. The mob broke for the time being- when the firing began and has not assembled since. The troops went back to Chicago. Early in the morning as a party of deputies was traveling from Prince to Sprinsrvalley in wagons, some strikers in ambush tired upon them, wounding Deputy S. T. Powell in the face. The fire was returned and one man was seen to fall. He was, how ever, carried off by his companions, and the extent of his injuries is not known. THE STillKK HROKEN.

The following statement was issued last night by Chairman Egan, of the general man agers' association: 'To-day the railways in the city of Chicago handle I their usual num ber of through passenger and mail trains. Many of them have resumed suburban service. The number of freirrlit trains, both in and out of the city. on all lines. has large ly increased since yesterday. The backbone of the strike was broken yesterday. Nearly all of the requisitions for men wanted by the different railways have been tiled.

The Peace of the Nation d angered, He Says. En- Chicago, July 11. Knights of Labo throug-hout the country, numbering" nearly 1,000,000 men, have been called upon to strike for the cause of organized labor. General Master Workman Sovereign issued an order late last evening- to all members of the ora-anization to cease work until the conflict orig-inating- in the strike of the Pullman employes shall have ! been settle Folio wing-is the text of j the order: ! "To the Knisfhts of Labor Greeting-: I "Chicago, Jul 10. Acrisis has been I reached in the affairs of this nation 1 that endang-ers the peace of the re I public. Every fiber in our civil struc j ture is strained to the breaking-point, i The shadows of factional hatred , hover over our fair land with terrible ; forebodings. The arrocrant lash of superiority is being applied by the corporations with relentless fury, and . the chasm between the masses and the classes is growing deeper and wider with each succeeding day. If peace is restored, and this nation is saved from acts repulsive to the con science of all Christian people, there must be wise action, and that quickly. Sincerely believing that the names of disccrd are being purposely fanned by the railway corporations, at the risk of the life of the government, I take the liberty to appeal to you, and through you to the conscience of the whole people, imploring you to lay down the implements of toil for a short Reason, and under the banner of peace and with a patriotic desire to promote the public welfare, use the power of your aggregated numbers through peaceful assemblages to cre ate a healthy public sentiment in favor of an amicable settlement of the issues growing out of the recent strike of the Pullman employes; and you are further requested not to return to your usual avocations until a settle ment of the pending troubles are made known to you through some authentic source. In the present strained relations between comora tions and their employes is involved a principle near and dear to all Ameri can citizens, the right of labor to pre sent its grievances to the owners and representatives of corporate capital. 'The Pullman Palace Car company refused to arbitrate the differences between itself and its employes on the ground that cars were built below j cost and therefore there was nothing to arbitrate. But the conclusion of every unprejudiced mind must be that if such were the true facts it would have nothing to fear at the hands of ! an arbitration committee. Iiut the I Pullman company goes farther in its . autocratic policy than a refusal to arbitrate. It has refused to join j with the business men and the board j of aldermen of Chicago in a committee ; to discuss the question as to whether j th'-re is anything to arbitrate or not, I and behind this autocratic policy j stands the Managers' association of j the railway corporations, backed by ' the United States army as the aiders and abettors of this 'ocial crime. "Suppose the Pullman company had 1 invited organized labor to urbitrnte ami orga sized labor had declined the ! invitation and refused to discuss the j question as to whether there was any- tiling to arbitrate or not, it is need- ; less to say a wave of popular indigna- j tion would obliterate every labor or- I ganization from the face of the conn- i try. and no mere could be formed for I the next fifty years. The stigma of such 1 a posit on would follow every name I connected with organized labor to the ' grave. But in the present crisis the j corporations, whose wealth has bo:n j created by labor, takes the position that they are prior and choke their j creator. Like the brigands of old, j they rob the laboring masses and em- ; ploy the sword and the bludgeon and ; set up a throne on the vanquished : and declare their divine right to rule I over the balance of mankind. "The Pullman company claims that j notwithstanding the wages of their ! employes were reduced to the starv- j ing point there is nothing to arbitrate because cars have been built at a loss, yet it neglects to state that the stock of the company has been watered three times over and that the com pany has not only been able to Day its regular dividends on water and all, but that it's stocks have long been and are at the present time at a premium on the stock markets. Mr. Pullman cries poverty to his starving employes and then retreats to his princely summer mansion on Pullman island in the St. Lawrence river and wires the business men of Chicago that he has nothing to arbitrate. Like a Nero, he laughs in luxury while de voted martyrs burn. "If the present strike is lost to la bor, it will retard the progress of civilization and reduce the possibility of labor to ever emancipate itself from the thraldom of greed. The dignity of labor and "all the victories won in the past are at stake in this conflict. I beseech you to be true to vour obligations in this hour of trial. Court the co-operation of the gener ous public. Stand firm and united in our common cause, and the victory will be one of peace and prosperity for the faithful. "J. R. Sovereign, 'Grand Master Workman." All Knights of Labor assemblies in Chicago were notified by the district master workman to take action on the plan adopted at the recent labor conference, all members being ad jured to maintain peace and order.

Two Experts to Be Sent to Australia to See What They Can Do, There are probably no more tklllful limea in the world than the wocxl shoppera of the Pacific Northwest. Some of them can saw or chop a treo that will fall in any desired direction, nd it is eves said that they can drive stake into the ground and fell a tree so that in striking- the ground it ihall bury the stake out of sight Two of the picked lumbermen of the Northwest are to be sent over to Australia to compete with their fel low craftsmen in that part of the world. The following- letter to the Puyet Sound Lumberman from Lat robe, Tasmania, explains the manner of the competition in which they will be entered: "In your issue of Septem ber, 1S93, you mentioned the United Australasian Axmen's association, and also the fact that you have splendid axmen in the Pacific Northwest. Now these latter are just what we want to reach, because we want the best men among- them to come and see if they can compete with the Tasmamans and Australians in wood-chopping con- tests. We hold our next annual con test in Ulverston, Tasmania, Nov. 23 and 29, 1894, for which I enclose a ; program. We are offering liberal ; prizes, and if two competitors come from the Pacific Northwest and come by reference from you that they rep ; resent your country in these contests ! we will guarantee them 25 ($125) each for traveling expenses, or 50 (S250) for the two; besides we will give free entry to all contests. They will have to meet our champions on level terms in the championship con tests, but if they enter handicaps they will get starts from our best men. Private matches could also be ar ranged, AUSTRALIAN BOOMERANGS. le te TeUi What a Clever Bushman lild With One of Them. "Yes, ther cur'os'ties!" said Aus tralian Pete, when the subject of boomerangs was mentioned. "You've seen the mysterious stick thrown?"

I remember once seein' a bnshman named Hullaloo throw a boomerang in an exhibition before some English officers. He was a lithe, wiry fellow, an' didn't look as though he could knock down a cat. Takin' the crooked stick in his hand he fixed his gaze on a spot about seventy tive yards in front of him, an' giving the stick an awkward whirl he struck the exact spot. Then it bounded 300 feet in the air, an came flutterin' down like a wounded bird, until within six feet o' the ground, when it flew across in front of us an' began to circle gracefully upwards. It went, an' went " "Ah, and returned, killing a rabbit fifty yards behind you?" "No, sir!" "Perhaps killed a dove on a tree far to the right " "Not much!" "Came down without hurting- any thing?"

A man with a whip in his hand and mmldy cowhide boots upon his feet tramped up into City Clerk Alien's room in Lewiston, Maine, and de manded: "Can I get married here?" "You can take the first steps to wards it." "First steps? I have taken the first steps for the last six or seven years, and now I'm going to finish it up. I tvant to be married right off. My gal is down there holdin' the horses, and if you'll marry me, I'll hitch em and she'll come up. Hey?" "You will have to get published and wait a while before you get married." "Wait I Wait! By the sweet apple tree, I won't wait. Jane's been tell ing me to wait all these years, and I'll be cussed if I'll wait. Wait! Pooh! See here, young fellow, if you don't marry me I'll have you discharged. I'm forty years old and my own man. I won't be fooled with." The clerk finally explained to the man that the law required him to wait, and he consented and was pub lished. A Man With a Double Heart. When the Mercer county, N. J.f med ical association was in session a few years ago a colored individual named Win. King came before them for ex amination. He claimed to have two hearts, but a careful examination re vealed the fact that bis heart was double instead of being two separate blood-pumping organs. Besides hav ing two distinct pulsations, which could easily be felt, he had wonderful control over his double life engine, being able to stop its beating for sixty seconds without inconvenience.

At the are of 11 cnoriUij h breathed his last. Thus we laid Our Darling Child In the grave. On Aug. 4, 1891, another boy was born unto us. At the age of two months he be came afflicted with the same disease. I bflievel the boy's trouble was constitutional, ami not Common sore mouth. I procured a bottie of Hood's Sarsaparlila and commenced to (ire it regularly to both mother and baby, aud ocuia sionly washed his mouth with a syrup of buck brush root. Improvement began at once. We have succeed In eradicating the scrofulous blootf from the system and to-day we are blessed wit's, a nice, fat baby boy, eighteen mouths old. lie la the very Picture of Health, all life and full of mischief thanks to Ilood's Sarsaiiarilla. I am a minister in the Methodist I'rotestant church. 1 am here to back hat I say and I am in no way Interested in any ;rof,t In the matter, except it affords me much pleas ure to recommend Hood's Sarsapariila to all ai Hood'ssv"Cur a safe, sure remedy.
