PACKERS STAND FIRM Despite Fire, Tumult and Picketing Todayr. SLAUGHTERING STOCK anname bsam a~ T== cm CAGO STOE TA First Strike Victim Dies Hi Hospital Excitement Over Confagra tion at Swift Plant. CHICAGO, July 27.-Fire, tumult and picketing contributed to stirring scenes at the stock yards today, while the packers, firm in their stand, went ahead slaughter ing stock and doing as much other work as was possible in the circumstances. Con vinced of an improvement in the situa tion. as far as available non-union help and capacity otherwise of the plants were concerned. the packers had sent word. to shippers to be somewhat more generous with their consignments, and as a result the receipts of cattle, hogs and sheep were considerably larger than had been the rule during previous days of the strike. There were more men working, according to the employers, and more work for them to do. The chief excitement of the day centered about Swift's lard refinery far in the in terior of the stock yards, almost a mile from the main entrance. Flames were seen bursting from the up per floors of this building, and before long the whole of Packingtown was in a turmoil. Teamsters by the hundreds, who had failed to go to work as a result of the action of their joint council. had added their num bers to those of thousands of men who had already been on strike, and a large major ity of them were loitering about the yards waiting for something to turn up. Wild Rush to Fire. The fire was enough of an incentive to cause a wild rush in all directions and de spite the efforts of the police the fire en g.nes found great difficulty in making a way through the crowds. The flames raged for about an hour, but were kept from sur rounding structures, though showers of svarks fell. Naturally the rumor spread that the fire was the result of incendiaries, but this was later declared emphatically to be erroneous. Not far away from the damaged building is the centralized power house, from which above the tire-swept lard refinery ran a net work of 118 electric cables, which were damaged to a large extent. A feature of the blaze was the temporary imprisonment of nine young women stenographers in an ele vator in Swift's office building. The cage was caught between two floors and the young women were in a panic, fearing the fire would spread from the burning refinery building before they could be rescued by the office force, members of which put up lad ders and, cutting the wirework of the ele vator cage, took the fair prisoners out and carried them to safety. Rain Disperses Crowd. This afternoon any tendency toward-gen eral rioting was checked for a time in a most unexpected way. There was a sudden downpour of rain, amounting almost to a cloudburst. The crowds disappeared as if by magic, and the streets were temporarily changed into the appearance of rivers. MANY SUFFERERS. Disposition to Conceal Destitution-No Complaints Made. CHICAGO, July 27.-Despite the fact that a relief fund of $Ct,O00 was voted last night to alleviate the distress of strikers and their families who are in wunt; ;there was little change today in the condition of the thousands of poverty-stricken strike suffer ers huddled in the squalfd district generally referred to as "Back of the Yards." instead of complaining, there is a dispo sition to conceal destitution, lest the fact of the impoverishment of the strikers be coming known might operate against the success of the union's struggles. Like the Spartan mothers of old, hungry wives and mothers of strikers sit in silence in their spare homes, purposely avoiding those who might seek them out with chari table motives. Two elements enter Into the silent. grim fortitude of these women loyalty to the unions and pride. Applications for relief are rare indeed, aithough it is said that want confronts hun dreds and scores are actually hungry now. QUIET AT ST. PAUL. Strikers' Treasury Depleted - Eenent Pay Day Passed. ST. PAUL, Minn., July 27.-At South St. Paul today the Swift plant was running as ustual, and the strIkers were quiet and or di rny. The treasury of the strikers is becoming depleted, and the officers have been obliged to pass the benefit pay day. Assistance fri t the international organization hias been asked for. FOUND UNCONSCIOUS. Workman Attacked by Strikers and Wounded. CHLICAGO, July 27.-Joseph Vharam was found today unconscious in front of his haome near the stock yards suffering from seveura.i knife wounds. The man was taken to a police station. When he recovered consciousness he said hec had been attacked by strikers. Two arrests were made. ANOTHER PEACE CONFERENCE, Labor Leaders Confer Today Over Strike Situation. CHICAGO, July 27.-Amid all the war like demonstrations there were reports of plans for another peace conference between the packers and the striking butchers. Members of the state board of arbitration appeared at the office of President Donnelly today and hel-1 a conference with the labor leaders. The. strike situation .was gone into thoroughly, and the arbitrators then left the office to seek a conference with the packing interests. Later President Don nelly and several of his aids left strike headquarters for a second conference with the state board of arbitration. DREW THEIR GUNS, Police Have Trouble in Removing an Efigy ('IIICAGO July 27.-Repulsed in an al temipt to remove a banging effigy police men were compelled to draw their- revoly era at 51st and Loomis streets today before they could disperse a mob of strike sym patiziers armed with clubs an.d base ball bats. The trouble arose from the refusal of John Witrie, formerly ,a metqbec of the firemen's union, tO 'go on strike. Retall atting for his defection the strike sympathis cra hanged him in efigy near his home. On the lay figure ,ee .pinned a placard bearing his name and an opprobrious epi thiet. The mob were throwing stones at the dummy when interrupted- by the police.

Mr. O'Brien. however, was not to be so easily suppressed. He hurried over to the so-called "Wetita .tackada,? the strikar' headquarts, and insiytsd on a prompt interview with President Donnoi. Mr. O'Brien got the Interview, but it failed to yield him any satisfaction. "I don't see how we can help you," ,Mr. Donnelly Is reported as saying. "The teamsters' strike is on, and none but union drivers are supposed to be about the yards.' Then Mr. O'Brien played a trump card. "If you stop us from delivering furni ture," he told Donnelly, "we will shut down our plant and throw hundreds of union woodworkers out of employment. Think it over." And he stalked out of the head quarters. LIFE AND DEATH STRUGGLB. Itatement From President Shea of Teamsters' Union. CHICAGO, July 27.-Cornelius P. Shea. president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, said today, analysing the strike: "This is to be a life and death struggle for the international organization of butch er. workmen. The packers, in my 6pinion. had carefully planned for a gigantic war to disrupt the butchers' union. Had teamsters remained at work the butchers' union would have been imperilled. The teamsters could not be a party to any such move as the packers had planned. We will not stand for that and cannot. Coirmon sepse teaches workingmen that unions must either stand or fall together." In defense of the teamsters' strike, Presi dent Shea said: "There is nothing In the constitution of the international organization as far as I can learn, nor between the packers and the packing house teamsters, that would pre vent a sympathetic strike. The decision of the union to strike was confirmed by a two-thirds vote of the local union and re ceived the indorsement of the local joint council and a majority of the executive board of the international body. This com plies with the conditions entitling the pack ing house teamsters to strike benenits. AS to the agreement with the packers. there was no clause against a sympathetic strike." TO MINIMIZE RIOTING. Police in Chicago Watch Teaming on a Certain Street. CHICAGO, July 27.-To minimize the dan ger of rioting, should the packing com panies attempt to deliver meat to local cus tomers with non-union teamsters, Chief of Police ONeill has given instructions that all hauling shall be done on Halstead street. The chief declares that all teamsters will be protected from violence, but to make this possible the hauling must be confined to one street, which will be strongly patrolled. The order calling out the packing house teamsters affects many other drivers as well. Those employed on market and gro cery delivery wagons, trucks. tallow and bone wagons, bakery, ice and express wag ons are prohibited from handling any goods to or from the packing plants. While it Is said to be the intention of the packers to ship practically all of the meat to outside points by rail and make no effort to take care of the by-products. the strikers expect to cause them much inconvenience by shut ting off supplies of all kinds as far as pos sible. Nine wagons loaded with meat were sent out today from the Schwarzschild & Suls berger plant at the stock yards. The wag ons had been repainted, the lettering re moved, high sides placed on them and cov ered with tarpaulin as a disguise. They were escorted from the yards by' a dozen policemen, who were relieved by ahother detail to guard them on their way to the north side of the city. FIRE AMONG PACKING HOUSES. An Overheated Dynamo Eurns a Swift Lard Refinery. CHICAGO, July 27.-Fire broke out among the packing houses -in the stock yards today In the lard refinery of Swift & Co., and soon gained such headway that every available fire engine In the stock yards district was called out. Rumors of incendiarism were rife. Examination. how ever, apparently showed the 'cause of - the blaze to have been an overheated dynamo. The building, 150 by 250 feet and three stories high, was filled with tierces of lard, many of which exploded, spreading the burning grease in every direction. Louis F. Swift was on the ground, and directed the firemen in their attempts to reach the blaze. The firemen were hampered in going into action by numbers of cattle and sheep which were being driven along Exchange avenue, the main thoroughfaire of the stock yards. The fire threatened a number of buildings near by, but the firemen managed to keep the flames from spreading. Thousands of strikers attempted to get near the burning building, but as soon as the police arrived ropes were *pread. block ing the streets for three squares away. No crowds were allowed to pass through the streets near the building. The top story of the building was of wood and burned like tinder. The contents of the building were said to be valued at $400,000. When the fire was discovered scores of non-unionists were working in the building. Stifing smoke, which quickly filled the ele vator shaft, was the first notice of the fire. Ideas, however, that the blaze was the work of an incendiary were scouted by the offioials of Swift & Co. L. F. Swift said: "The fire was caused, we have found, by the burning out of a motor. The grease-coated walls and ceil ing of the rooms caused a rapid spreadinig of the fire. There is absolut*Ly no reason to think that the blaze was of incendiary origin." Most of the men in the building were on the first floor when the fire broke out.I Others left the building chiefly by the maini stairway. Few found I-t necessary to resort to the fire-escapes. The damage was principally confined to the upper part of the building. According to Louis F. Swift, the actual loss would be only a few thousand dollars, fully insured. FIRST STRIKE VICTIM. Clarence Hall Died From Random Pis tol Shot. CHICAGO, July 27.-'Clarence Hail is the first victim claimed by death as a result of the stock yards strike here. Hail is dead at the Continental Hospital. Last Tuesday, he, with R. F. Keating, his em ployer, an ice acealer, was driving past' a ci-owd of rioters. Two shots were fired, one of whicn struck Keat'ing, passed through his leg and struck Hall. The police never ascertained who fired the shot. KITTY ENGLISH MOEBED,. Attacked by a Crowd of Gir,! Strike Sympatizers, CHICAGO, July 2.-Kitty English, fore woman in the sewing.department of Swift & Co.'s plant, was mobbed and badly hurt by a crowd of girl strike sympathizers at Halstead and Root streets. Fully a dezen girls took part in the attack, They beat the forewoman with their fists, tore her cloth ing and finally slashed her face with a knife. After a desperate struggle, Miss lngish escaped.

The strikers will,adl return to their tor mer work this eventasg or tomorrow meorn Ing, and the non-tm on fremen who filled their plages will ig displced. This Infor matlon - was given- to a Star reporter late this afternoon by Mr. Healy. A committee 'oi 'the strikers will confer with Mr. Heurich this evening and complete arrangements will te made for their return to duty. This conference will take place at the request of Mr. Louis B. Scram. who has played an important. part in brihging the trouble to a settleipent. Mr. Scram Is can officer of the United States Brewers'-Association and owner of the Indian Wharf Brewing Company of Brooklyn. N. Y'fe is also a prominent member of the National Civic Federation and has taken a great interest in labor mat ters. He has in the past few years given a great deal of time to disputes between capi tal and labor and Is. anxious at all times to use his good offices to bring capital and labor together. Conference With Mr. Scram. Mr. Healy talked ever the long distance telephone yesterday evening with Mr. Scram, who was in Brooklyn. They made an appointment to meet at an uptown hotel here today. Mr. Scram came to Wash ington on the midnight or "owl train," and the conference took place this forenoon. At its conclusion Mr. Scram had a conference with Mr. Heurfeh and Attorney Tobriner. After all phases of the situation had been d'scussed, the decfsion was reached which resulted In President Healy this afternoon declaring that the strike was at an end. In a talk with a Star reporter, Mr. Healy said everything came out satisfactorily to all parties concerned and the striking fire men will promptly return to their posts. "Mr. Scram is a close personal friend of mine," said President Healy, "and.he came here at my request .to try and settle this strike, and he has succeeded in doing so." Their is joy in the camp of the striking firemen at the outcome of their difficulty, which threatened ,to continue indefinitely. They are well 'bfitl|fed with the arrange ments whict. have been made with Mr. Heurich. Ai their- eeting last night Presi dent Healy requkbted that a committee with full poiFer tOct be appointed in con nection witt0dr. Scram's proposed confer ence with M-t. IfeuAich. This committee was appointed abd its decision, which is in favor of the st1ikers resuming their work, will be final. This will render unnecessary the holding of a meeti of the Firemen's Union to ratify the eetlent arrived at to declare the strike o . The Profered AId. It is said the greater part of the $2,000 placed at the disposal of the strikers by the New York irernen's Union will now be declined with grateful thanks. It is said Mr.;Heurlch- is equally satisfied at the .outcoula of .the,matter, and. will to morrow eritg illg new contract with the f'remen. A $ignal Victory: Friends of the jeurich Brewing Com pany ci Ini that concern nas won a signal victory over the local Brewers' Association, as the price of tie Heirich light beer will not be increased, but remain at the present figure. They iso say the firemen and Mr. Heurich "now -nderstand each pther." and claim the strikers were justified in breaking the strike under any circumstances since their "throw down" by the Central Labor Union, as Mr. Healy termed it. Last Night's Meeting The local firemen's union held a meeting last night, and it was unanimously decided to continue the strike. President Timothy Healy was present and encouraged the strilrers to stafid firm.- Later he said the union would not "Yield an inch" until Mr. Heurich submitted to the terms of his re quest that he (Heum'ich) meet in conference with the firemett, the Central Labor Union representativce'*td, ths members of the brewers' associtiQ*n. Unless he does, added Mr. Healy, tlie strike will continue indefi 'nitely. Contilgning, President Healy said he was weilling to meet Mr. Heurich at any time and place he may elect but he posi tively-declined to mneet Mr. Tobriner. -Mr. Healy gaysa the striking firemen will all be fGirnished' withb jobs in New York If they -care''to 'ko there. The New York union wilt see to it. that none' of them re main idle. The local firemen deny that they held a secret conferegece maeeting yesterday. The only meeting held was that of their union last night. Backing the. Strikng Fireman. The striking firemen, backed by President Healy and their. international organisation, appear to be deterinined that so far as they are concerned, the strike shall continue "until taeir grieVances are satisfactorily settled." A fund of $2,000 has been placed at their disposal by the Firemen's Union of New York city, and it Is stated that unionsg in other cities 'will make additions to the amount, until the meeting in this etty of the International Brotherhood of Firemen on August 8. A regular union pay roll will be established "und' the strikers paid the amounts they received as salaries wIrlle working for the Heurich company. It is bdlievegl that $250 a week will be sufficient to meet the demands of the pay rolL. ~r. Tdbfiner's Statement.. Being .aked it he had any statement to make,- . Leon Tobriner, attorney for the''H4mbrich Bi-ewing Company, .said to day tbSat his ije had ,nothing further to remark as to the general sitution.. "I will say." ie- added, "that all this side talk sa pm gattacks on 'Mr. Heurich and myself Is simply- for the purpose of di verting the4j.s fMomi .tJW position -taken by Mr. HoaybTat a strike would be or dered unless the Cheistian Heurich Brew ing oxaJp~ ed the .;Brewers' Asscia tion and. raibe .t rie Af its light beer to $6 per batrel.'

CHICAGO, July 27.-The storm saved the life of J. B. Joyce, a negro strike breaker. A mob which had attacked the man was dispersed by the sudden bursting of the btorm, the assailants who had been beating the strike breaker fleeing to places of shel ter rather than expose themselves to the fury of the elements. There appeared to be no chance for the negro to escape alive until suddenly the storm broke, although the police were club bing. their way toward the center of the mob. As quickly as the mob had gathered it dispersed, every one rushing for shelter. The police did likewise, rushing with the Injured negro aboard a street car. AFTRNOON SESSION. Fourth Charge Against Superintendent Stutler Discussed. At the afternoon session of the Stutler in quiry Mr. Robinson was the first witness called. He 'made a statement substantially the same as that contained in the charge. Judge Cole. while examining Mr. Robin son, asked him if his charges against Mr. Stutler were not prompted by jealousy of Mr. Rusk because the latter secured the contract for street sweeping. "They are not," replied Mr. Robinson. "I was never jealous of any one in my life." "Didn't you have some trouble with the city of Buffalo over street sweeping?" "No, sir. We had to sue the firm to which we sold our contract." Georgetown Notes. Rev. J.

Losses ap proximated a point in a few cases, and reached 3% in Hocking Valley. The de clines ceased before 11 o'clock. but there were no decided rallies. United States Steel preferred sold down 36 in the second hour, and losses ran to about a point in some of the other leaders. including Missouri Pacific, Canadian Pa cific and Norfolk and Western. There were, no engagements of gold for export, as was feared. and the market rallied. Union Pa cific. Reading and Amalgamated Copper got a fraction over last night, and Ten nessee Coal a point. Intense dullness fol lowed the rally. Bonds were irregular at ncon. The market held up pretty well until large offerings of United States Steel pre ferred were again thrown on the market. These were supplemented by free selling of the grangers and Pacifics, especially Union Pacific, and the entire market declined again to about the low point. United States Steel preferred' sold down to 50%, and Union Pacific fell off to about 95. United States Steel preferred touched 59%. making the maximum decline 1%.

Tids year It . a source of re.re. to not only the enior. but to the undergraduates. th.' faculty and the friends, that "Sam." or the "p)rofessor." an he Is familiarly called, is seriously ill. He always attended last chapel. and spoke words of advice to the young men and wo men. but this year Ill-health prevented the customary address, and he was not even able to attend the exercises. But to, him the disappointment was no greater than to the students, and after the service wan at a close the class marched to the" home o,f the honorea Janitor, and, gat herng in front of the house, gave him a hearty heering. The sick man was touched by the demon stration, but he wan unable to say a word. In the college catalogue and the Y. M. C.

Army ule Never Known to Kick. From like -Nebraska State Journal. Col. George E. Jenkins of ralrburk, quart termaster and comlisary general of the Nebraska Guard at the recent school for National Guard officers In the city, says: "After a lifetime of close association with the mule I have never known him to kick a man; nor have I ever met a man who knew another man of his own knowledge who had been kicked by a mule. tThs is a bold statement, but It i tre nevertheless. You can question soldiers of the army everywhere, and I confidently predict that they will bear me out in this I know I am uprooting a popular belief. but I ask you to atop and think and se if I am not doing our mule friend a deserved justice. Horses kicks ore plenty - mule kicks are as rare as progotions. Were you ever riding at night on the prairies. far away from comrade and camp weary. looking for the nvstant twinkling camp fires not to be found? Did You ever at such a time see your mule friend lift his tireles head and blow his resonant trumpet of dis covery of the sought for haven? He has not nen it but he has smelt it. and In a mo ment In trotting a bee-line for the distant picket ane and forage ration. Were you ever riding across a dreary, dry, dusty country, thirsty, no water in night and its whereabouts undiscovered? Throw the bri dle loose on the mule's neck and give him his way; he will take you to water as un erringly a a carrier pigeon wings its way to its roost." p Acet Diebtn foage ratin.

The view of the Indian as the father of modern military tactics may seem farfetch ed.

The aIm of every general is to 'hurl the mass of his troope upon the weakest spot of his adversary's defense at an unexpected moment. With cavalry the best use i. made by fighting as infantry while a fractional detachment guards the horses in reserve. Those tactics counted in the revolution and have counted ever since in the regular and the volunteer armies of the United States. The London Military Mail now com mends the Indian as the model scout. The Army and Navy Journal properly pro nouncen the regular cavalryman of our regiments as his superior, but in so doing gives credit where. it is due by saying that "all the really desirable methods of the Indian as a mounted fighter were long ago adopted and in some respects improved by our mounted forces."

From Leslie's Weekly. Our business at the post ofice attendsIg u to. we started at once for the Nunanu Pall, and as we went up and up through the wonderful valley of all clors my en- e thusiasm grew apace and my spirite rose. Such flowers! such foliage! aud palms! such a soft, perfumne-laden airl It is all so beautifully indemcribable that I must exult In the fact that my memory can retain it all in detail. The driver got out of the carriage here and there to gather great red blossoms for us, tropical flowers much a I had never seen, and he did it with such an air of nonchalance-ms if he particularly wanted us to know what an old story It was to him,. We had been deriiey re ferring to the Nunanu Pal as the piece de redastance of Honolulu, and wondering if after all it would. be worth our six-mile drive. but the moment the valley dipped behind asand we wee thust, as it were, thbagoIa a narrow pass out of Its warn, soft *etter into a battle of the elements on a bmttisid -as widS as earth and heaven and a deep as the deepest aea, the laegk died upon ear lUps and we pasd ae the glry of .God in iln To try e bsaie it semso lk hding the scene ftem the minds eye behind a fabris of esp,esnic less weedse What mnam is there with which to onavey an hessa er ete thm that Eltis weed?
