CniCAOa, Minali 7 Special .?The situation in
regard to the Burlington strike, though
idly mixed, mema to bs growing critical. There
is no question but that the mad hus hud much
the best of the light fio fur, but it may now have
t: able with tbs other isdlways. Tbs mn .agers
of all the lines hers nra nervous les! ths strike
should extend to their . .ads, nnd u, y are mak?
ing all sorts of premiss of neutrality to tho
Brotherhood, Severn] of them havo waited on
Chlel Arther and endeavored to nasuis him that
they would la no way uss,--t tba Burlington. So
far as heard frost, Bot a single rond spca which
the Chie.'i'ro, BnrlingtoB nnd Quincy has made s
(lenniii'l to handle freight has responded favor?
ably. Ths Wabash refused point blank, Ths
bt. Taul declined, and a heavy train switched on
tu its traci's liuni liui'liugtou tracks at Western
ii\e. f.,r tnuisportat-oa over tho Chicago, Mil
wankes nnd St l';iul Lins wns hauled back.
Other Wcetern roads to whom thc formal i
v...* sen1 lui'.o either refused ur are prepared to
lejecl freight winn offered.
raul Morton, wbo is the authorized spokesman
for the Burlington Company, said: "We pro
pans to Maud by our rights, bom a* regardi our
employes and oilier railroads. We have won the
tight with our employes, and we nre sure to win
the other. Tia law compels other rca.is to ram
our freight when ws deliver the cns on their
tunks. Wo nr,)]>o-_; to maintain our rights nt
all hazaida, lbs position of tbs otk r roads is
decidedly mure uncomloi.able than that ol the
(.hun. ,., Burlington and Quincy. Whether
the ott,er reads nre willing to incur tbe unger
of their mon and t*i_o chalice- on tlie lawsu ts,
or iii. . fjigpae the other horn of the dilemma, the
situation ls extremely uncomfortable.
?? We are running forty-seven pa Been ger traina
and im freight trains od the Iowa division. Ail
around we un- di dug wclL"
The nirsi_t.ni freight agent, Mr. Ripley, said:
M We haven't nsked all the roads, hs we hnve only
got to work with our height, but so tar we have
only found four road* retuning to handle our
freight, the Wabash, tho Belt Line, the North*
western and tbe Rock Uland. What tbe others
may do winn WS get around to them I don't
BBOW."
I he erip, neera on all tbe Western and Nurth
Westem roads, and in twx all lines connecting
with the Burlington, seem determined to lian.ile
Uo Chicago., Burlington and Quincy ears. Tho
moment nn engineer on one of these lines is dis
eharged for refusing to Couple his engine to a
Burlington ear. a .trike will take ph. ..n that
line, and if neoeeaaiy. on all tbe connecting linea,
Chief Arthur said to-day to tho strikers who coiled
at his headnuartnraI
" 1 want io impress upon yon all the no,- -
of keeping a close watch upon the actions of yous
roads in toe mailer. 1 would not be lurpriaed to
-*r-e some dismissals soon, and tbs moment that
anybody la discharged Iel lt be reported to head*
ouarters hero und a btrilce will follow immo
dintely."
He fcaid to B r(-]>orter, " There ls serious dnn_er
that, the strike w.ll spread widely, it ia Im?
possible to appease uar men when they know
that tbs railruii'l wanpunies all over the oountry
an* divine ail io tbe Burlington. We are con

Fhure engineers refused to take a tram of Bur*
liii_tun cars from E-Uglewood to Bixteentb-at**
de. aring timi they would quit before tbej wonM

vt-ns said to be dying at 7 p. tu. to-day. The a'>
acnt m-mheni 0. hil family were immedintely
telegraphed for mid the BoBdesmtb waa summoned
for an extraordinary silting. At 0 o'clock t.o
Emperor pnrtook of a .light nourishment, and an
hour inter, notwithstanding his frmMimcnB. showed
signs of rallying.
At midnight the ag"<l monarch waa nn better.
Ile talked a little in the evening with his aids*
d.-eainp, but his mind wand-red somewhat. It
is stated that lt ls. lmpna.sil.le to administer
remedies, and that his ree.,very depends SpOD
bis rccu-lenitive power. Another (Stating (lt would
probably prove fatal. Ile Ls now in an almost
comatose, state.
On Sitt'irday tlie Emperor caught, cold and waa
confined to his bed. A baHetlfl was issued on
Sunday savins that his illne>-: w.is alight, but tliat
his physicians had advised him to kc-p his room
for several days. His Bleep was much broken,
and the doctors prescribed injections of morphine.
Thi- morning the ? Reichsaagei" publisher]
tbe following bull, lin ilgsed by thc palBOS phy?
sicians.
" To the penernl symptoms of cid which have
affected the Emperor since Saturday, together
with nn affection of the mucous membrane of
tbe throat and Irritation of th.- membrane of tbe
eyelids, have been added during thc past few dnys
painful abdominal disorders, which have occurred
frequently _ine. yesterday. The Emperor's ap?
petite bas materially diminished, owing to which
there bas been a marked decrease in his StrSBgth."
The royal patient was restleaa Inst nif-Iifc up to
2 o'clock, when be f, ll Into a deep shep, fr. tn
which be did not waka until 3:30 this afternoon.
His condition was unsatisfactory and I'r.nce Ilis
narek was sent for. The Emperor took snme
nourishment and for a willie appeared to mst
easily, but at 4 o'clock he suffered a serious re
laps-. Prince William, Trinee Risman?_, ('..nut
Von Moltko and tho court physician were then
it bis bedside. The Chancellor immediately 1. ft
the palace to convene a meeting of the UinistCTB
Af thc s.ssi,,n of the Budget Committee late In
thc afternoon, Count Von Sch dlendorf, Minister
of War, referring to tlie Emperor's illnesg, said
lhat thero was no Immediate danger. It It r_
pnrtcd that the closing of the Reichstag will be
postponed until there ls some decided change in
the patient's condition.
Fnncc William remained nt, his grandfptlicr's
bedside a quarter of an hour. Before having
the palana Princess William visited the Empress.

Late to-iiii'ht, the r*np.T"r Baked fer food, and
on partaking of it felt refreshed. The members
of the Ministry of tlie Imperial House wero in
attendance dining the night, and Hie telephone
to Potsdam was kept oi>> n. It ls state] tliat In
addition to the kidney affection, the Emperor
ls also suffering from Intense psta due to inflam?
mation of the part, affected by the rupture which
he suffered some time aro. It lias been found
tHnt the morphia administered to alleviate the
pain ls too much for bis strength and has a bad
effect upon hts appetite. Ihe Injections of the
drug will Therefiire bs discontinued, Doctors
von Latter nnd Leut'i dd do not lenvo thc Km?
peror an instant. _ 'io rn-ntest excitement pre?
vailed in the Pnliicc all day, but to the general
publio llttlo was known until toward evening.
Among the various reports sent abroad wns one
fjiat Inst night the Emperor had a serious faintitiR

by the MatfBBf, and mont of the employee who
SSSBBSd found their way to the ground by way of
the roof In the rear. The unfortunate men and
women who ciowdcd into the edtorial room* were
cut off from eM-ape in the par and hud to faco tha
alternative of buming to death or jumping to tha
sidewalk below. The tim department Mpsaisi
promptly, but lt seemed an age before the firemen
reached the windows in tho fifth story. A ladder
WM placed to reach to the fourth story, and tha
sulit. of reseiiat no near seemed to madden tiie
Bullering people St tbs windows, and, one by ona,
they dropped to tha sidewalk below. Six persona
