Three lines of railroad have been forced to abandon their tracks at East Atchison, Mo., on account of encroach ment by the river. The effects of the great railroad strike were beginning to be felt seri ously with the opening of the month in Chicago and other cities dependant upon outside supplies of food stuffs, the prices of many commodities, by reason of the real or anticipated scarci ty, having been raised to almost pro hibitive figurees The executive board of the Chicago Trades and Labor assembly were, on the night of the 1st. given power to de clare a strike in all the branches of trade in the city in support of the Pull man boycott. The noticeable feature in the spread ing of the railroad strike in support of the Pullman boycott, was the organiza tion, on the 1st. of a-strong A. K. U. division in Philadelphia.

THE CRUCIAL POINT In the Great Railroad Boycott and Strike Believed to be Very Near at Hand—All Parties Apparently Agreed Vpon This. But Widely at Variance in Their Opln J ions as to the Means to The Knd. Chicago, July 2.—The crucial point in the railroad strike will be reached within twenty-four hours from mid night. This is the opinion confidently expressed at headquarters of the rail 1 road managers at a late hour. It is likewise the first expression emanating from the managers' end since the com mencement of hotilities, with which the representatives are in complete ac cord. Both elements are sanguine that the beginning of the end will be in sight before sundown Tuesday. As to the means by which this desira ble consummation is to be attained, however, there is a radical difference of opinion. The general managers pro fess to believe that the extraordinary injunction issued to-day by Judges Wood and Grosscup will prove to be worthy of the terse yet ephigrammat ical designation given it by the first named members of the federal judi ciary of “a gatling gun on paper;” a veritable dragnet of verbage; one of those peculiar instruments that punishes an individual for doing a cer tain thing and is equally merciless if he doesn't do it—it is difficult to under stand how the strikers can maintain their present policy and at the same time evade its operation or escape its influence. Even personal service is not an absolute necessity to its legal en forcement. According to the law as expounded by United States District Attorney Milchrist to-night, the pub lication of the degree in a widely-cir culated paper, its posting in a public place where it is certain to be read and its contents disseminated; or the formal reading to a demonstrative crowd by a deputy marshal, may be re lied upon as Constituting sufficient service to place ithose guilty of a breach of its provisions under the ban of the law. Under this construction thou sands of strikers might be arrested day after day and summarily dealt with.for contempt of court. If it is carried out there will be no need, so it is believed, for the employment either of state militia or federal troops. A goodly for»e of deputy marshals armed with power to make arbitrary arrests, and with the knowledge on the part of the strikers tiiat, once within the clutches of the law, a peremptory sen tence to prison for contempt, instead of a preliminary hearing, bail, and a final trial months hence, when the echoes of the strike may have died away—will be their portion, should the managers create such a combine of circumstance as to cause the strikers to pause and reason before acting. Hut the strikers themselves reason differently. At their headquarters this evening the interference of the federal court was denounced in vigor ous language by one and all of the hundreds if not thousands of railroad men that passed in and out, and the most intelligent of the number voiced the general sentiment in the declaration that the far-reaching and dragnet character of the injunc tion would tend toward defeating the very ends to which it was directed. Instead of inducing men to return to work, so it was contended, it would re I suit in driving out the thousands of ! members of railroad organizations af filiated with the union or apparent ly in sympathy with its present operators, simply liecause these men would not tolerate the cracking over the shoul ders of their fellows the lash which, some day or other, under similar cir i cumstances, might he used as a lash I for their own shoulders. The opinion was confidently ex pressed in the camp to-night that the engineers and firemen of every road that attempted to resume operations by virtue of the injunction would immediately leave their posts, and that consequently the last state of such roads would be worse than the first. Not only this, but it was asserted that it needed simply the formal request of the officers of the union to bring out every man. woman and child in Chicago identified with organized labor in accordance with the formal resolution adopted yesterday. The federal and county officers con tinue to swear in deputies, and an army of over 2.000 of the toughest look ing citizens that Cook county can pro duce, armed to the teeth and wearing the insignia of state or national dig nity, is subject to orders to-night, and will, doubtless, lie brought into service to-morrow. Lights were burning in the windows of the government and county buildings alike at midnight, and the authorities were preparing for any emergency. THE PULLMAN BOYCOTT Will Work Havoc With the Attendance at the Christian Endeavor Convention. Cleveland, O.. July 3.—The great strike and boycott against the Pullman cars threaten to work havoc with the | attendance on the Christian Endeavor convention which meets in Cleveland next week. Messages from passenger agents of all the local lines who are now out looking up this business indi cate that the people are pretty well scared and many will stay at home rather than run the risk of being laid out along the road. On July 5 a spe cial train load of endeavorers was to have left San Francisco for Cleveland. As there is not a wheel turning on any road out of that city they w-ill not bt. j able to get here. STRIKERS ENJOINED. A Sweeping Order Restraining Interfer ence with Trains Issued by United States Judges—Neither Government Mali Nor ! Inter-State Freight or Passenger Trains Must l>e Interfered With—The Mana gers’ Association Full of Fight. Chicago, July 2.—The striking rail- , way employes within the jurisdiction i of the United States court for this cir- • cuit, which includes Illinois and the ! greater part of Indiana and Wisconsin, j are confronted to-night by the strong 1 arm of the law in the shape of the ! most sweeping injunction that has ■ ever issued from a federal court under | similar conditions. Compared with it, i according to the views expressed In corporation attorneys of long exper ience, the now celebrated injnn ction of Judges Jenkins and Dundy were but mere verbiage. All last night United States District Attorney Milchrist, in accordance with instructions from Washington, was busily engaged in preparing a bill cov ering the entire situation, and when completed it filled no less that forty pages of typewritten legal cap. Im mediately upon their arrival in this city Judges Wood ond Grosscup re paired to the government building, and the bill was submitted for their con sideration. In the meantime Edwin Walker, who on Sunday had been commissioned by Attorney-General Olney as special counsel for the government, had also reached town, and was on hand to take part in the conference. When the bill had been roughly reviewed he raised the objection that it was drawn en tirely upon the grounds of violation of the interstate commerce act: whereas, according to his own views of the situ ation, interference with trains carry ing the United States mails should form a salient feature of the complaint. The judges were inclined to take the same view, and so the bill was returned to the lawyers for amendment. In the running decision, Judge Gross cup expressed himself as somewhat op posed to federal interference until the state resources for protecting life and property and maintaining order had been exhausted, and Judge Wood, while believing that the time had ar rived when the federal power should show its hand, was determined that the injunction should l>e carefully drawn. When the attorneys again returned the amended result of their labors it proved acceptable, and the restraining order was promptly issued. In part it reads as follows: E. V. Debs, George W. Howard. L.W. Rogers and the American Railway Union: Sylvester K. Eller, Lloyd Hotchkins, A. Piaobok, H. El fine, James Hannin. John Mastebrook, Wil liam Smith. Charles Nailor, John Duflln. Wil liam McMullen, E. Shelby. Fred Ketcham John Doyie. and all other persons combining and conspiring with them, and all other persons whomsoever, are en joined absolutely to refrain from interfering with or stopping any of the business of railroads entering Chicago engaged as common carriers of passengers and freights from dif ferent states, and interfering with mail trains, whether freight or passenger, engaged in inter state commerce and from destroying property; from entering their grounds for the purpose of stopping their trains or interfering with prop erty. * * * * Compelling or inducing by persuasion or violence of any of the employes of said roads, to refuse or fail to perform any of their duties as employes of such road in con nection with interstate commerce of such rail roads or the carrying of mails, passengers or freight: or attempting to induce by threats or intimidation any of the employes of such roads engaged in interstate business or operation of mail trains to leave the service of such roads or preventing any persons from entering the service of such roads. The order goes on at some length in such wording as to prove a veritable dragnet, completely covering any demj onstration of violence or interference whatever with trains, on the grounds that such interference would be a hin drance of United States mails and a violation of privileges granted rail roads under the interstate commerce laws. Every road entering the city and affected by the strike—a total of twenty-three—are specifically named, and the employes thereof are specific ally enjoined. It enjoins all strikers, their friends, sympathizers and those whom they may incite from interfering in any way in the United States court district of northern Illinois, with the United States mails, and with any interstate traffic, either passenger or freight. Those arrested for violation of the or der will he brought before the court and required to show cause why they should not he punished for contempt of court. THE RAILWAY MANAGERS’ ASSOCIATION KTLL OF FIGHT. From now on the railroad officials will adopt coercive measures, for the strike situation to-night is worse than at any previous time. Ky coercive measures the managers of therailwa\’s mean that they will simply decline to do anything. That they will not ac cept freight of any description and that with the withdrawal of passenger trains, they -will simply force the United States government to interfere and afford them protection, as soon as they can get train hands to take the places of the strikers. This line of policy, mapped out in the general managers’ meeting to-day, is being steadily followed with the idea of forc ing a wail from the travelling public, and thereby causing government in terference to gain protection. The Chicago A Northwestern abondoned its suburban service this evening, and in line with the before-mentioned policy, the Milwaukee A St. 1'aul. which was recently tied up bv the strikers, to day discharged all of its office force, with of course a reservation SOUTHERN GLEANINGS. Spring and Winter Ho Xot Agree. A Gretna Green marriage on May ?R startled Chattanooga, Tenn., owing to the prominence of the groom, who is W. L.
