Chloago, July 9. The oounoU oora
liitte on arbitration and oommittoe of
leven appointed at last night's meeting
tt the trade1 nnloni, met at 184 MadU
ion street at 1:15 o'olook. T. J. Elder-
kin of the Seamani union presided.
Jlrlef addresses were made by delegates
Slastte, Llndholm and Our tie, setting
forth the position of the unions and ex
pressing a oloar realization of the grav
ity of the present situation. Alderman
fcloGrtllln responded, briefly sketching
Joe fruitless efforts of the committee of
srbltretion, and oonoluding with the
higgestlon that as the Pullman Co., hod
laid there was nothing to arbitrate,

HoGillen. Marrener, Muelhoefer and
Powers and delegates Elderkin, Ryan

broposition before Vice President
Wickes of the Pullman Co., for his ao
leptance or rejection, and to report at
1:00 p. m.
' e shall make this offer to the Pull
man company," said Alderman McGil-
)en, "as representatives of the city of
Chicago and its laboring interests. If
the company rejects It there will no
longer any doubt as to where the re
sponsibility for this grave trouble
The sub-committe repaired at once to
Ihe office of Viae President Wickes and
was granted an interview with that
tentleman. Every man present felt the
extreme gravity of the hour, and the
Hence, through which the voices of the
.ipeakers teemed painfully distinct, was
"Do you come as aa official of the
ity?" Mr. Wickes asked of Alderman
McGIUen. t.
., "I dOi'VrepIled the alderman. . "
v "Doou represent the mayor in this
laatter?" inquired the Pullman official.
. "The mayor will endorse our action
here," the alderman replied. Alderman
MoGlllen then addressed Mr. Wickes
nd placed before him the proposition
SB authorized by the committee. Once
18 the alderman halted for an instant
Mr. Wickes said:
"The company cannot recede from the
position It has already held."
The interjection aroused Alderman
McGlllea and he eloquently portrayed
)he situation in all its bearings and the
Inevitable consequences unless a settle
ment were reached. Mr. Wickes list
ened attentively. He seemed touched
by the appeal, and when the spokesman
had concluded retired with Attorney
Runnels of the Pullman company for
consultation The delay was of brief
titration and when they returned every
one present read In Vice President
Wickes stern face "the fateful answer
he would make. The feeling was in
tense, and the little throng composed of
eommltteemen and members of the
brass' anj news association waited
ireathlessiy for him to speak.
Addressing Alderman MoGillen, Mr.
Wickes said: "The Pullman company
has nothing to arbitrate."
. Then there, was a painful silence.
Alderman McGlllen seemed paralyzed
for a moment. He could not believe
Jhe Pullman company would assume a
responsibility so tremendously grave.
' "Am I to understand," he slowly said,
"that the Pullman company refuses this
)llght request made at so grave an hour
ind upon which so much depends?"
"The Pullman company has nothing
lo arbitrate,'" reiterated Mr. Wickes.
Alderman McGlllen then said with
treat impressiveness:
"Mr. Wickes, your company demands
Ihe police protection of the federal gov
ernment, the state of Illinois, the coun
ty of Cook and .Chicago city, and yet
you utterly ignore" a fair request made
. by the city, a request the fundamental
Idea of which Is the preservation of
peace. We have come to you as con
lervers of the peace and you have as
. jumed grave responsibility in thus re
futing the request we make responsi
bility greater, perhaps, than even you
are aware."
'. "There is a principle involved in this
Matter,'. said Mr.: Wickes, "which the
Klman company will not surrender,
s that employers must be permitted
to run their business in their own way
ind without interference from their em
ployes or from anybody else. We shall
hot allow anyone to tell us how our
business shall be conducted and we
shall not' consent, to arbitration. Our
business is our own private affati) and
we want no interference from federal
ir state or any other government"

'1 make this postponement to await
the outcome of the fight among Chi

it Impossible that the tremendous Im
portance ot a paralysis of Chicago's

American Railway union half way In

time that public sentiment should
move th corporations to arbitration.
"Mr. Debs has all along evinced a
willingness for arbitration and the gen

proclamation was received I knew
there could be but one event the

Boston, July 9. The proclamation by

Cbioago, July 9. There were no Indi
cations within the limits of the oity to

He Is a Graduate of a Gold Cure Institute
Health Wrecked by Drlak.
New York, July 9. There is a grave
suspicion abroad that Eugene V. Debs,
the man directly responsible for all the
Industrial disorder of the day, Is not
mentally sound.
A few months ago, so the story runs,
Debs came to Mew York to b treated
for dipsomania. He was a physical
wreck at the time, and his mind was in
such a chaotic state from drink that he
was subject to hallucinations.
Debs came with a letter of introduc
tion from Robert G. Ingersoll to Dr. T,
S. Robertson, of No. 28 East Twentieth
street, a specialist in diseases ot the
nervous system.
He was treated for neurastehnia and
dipsomania, and at the end of a month
returned to the west apparently cured.
On Thursday of last week Dr. Rob
ertson having noticed with alarm the
actions of Debs sent him the following
As your friend and physician, I Im
plore you to stop where you are. The
condition of your nervous system" and
the great strain upon it make you ir
responsible for your own orders. Yours
in friendship, T. S. R,
No reply was received to this dis
patch. When asked by a reporter to
speak of Debs, Dr. Robertson said that
the continuous strain to which he is
subjected cannot but affect his nervous
system and the soundness of his judg
"In moments of excitement he is liable
to be carried away by his own enthu
siasm, and his judgment of men and
affairs necessarily must be mistaken.1
Dr. Robertson added that when Debs
called upon him he was suffering from
nervous prostration as a result of ex
cessive use of stimulants. He was earn
estly desirous of reforming, and he
cheerfully submitted to treatment.
A dispatch from Terre Haute says
that Debs is a graduate of a gold cure
Institute and president of one of the
"alumni associations." Since his "grad
uation" he has been on occasional

ise of Great Speed.
Boston, July 9. Eighty horse stalls at
the Mystic park track were burned 'to
night and five horses perished In the
flames. The fire originated from an un
known source and the building being
built lightly of wood, and containing
large quantities of hay and straw,
burned almost like 'a train of powder.
So rapidly did the flames liok up the
structures that it was only by the live
liest sort of work that the large part of
the horses that were quartered there in
readiness for the trotting meeting which
opens to-morrow were saved. The ani
mals burned were Hadley, jr., a pacer,
and Gllmore, a well known trotting
stallion, both owned by B. Demorest of
Baltimore. The horses were valued at
least at $5,000, .,
Narcissus, Corazzo and Hoey, three
horses belonging to the string of pick
Wilson of Binghamton, but owned in
Scran ton, were also burned to death.
All were green horses, but had .shown
great speed and were nominally valued
at several thousand dollar each by
their owner. Idle, a trottiug mate.
owned by McFarland & Co. of Bridge-
ton, N. J., was severely burned about,
the legs, but probably not fatally. The

In three of the work rooms of the Insti
tution became tired of obeying the rules
and started a revolt For a time they
succeeded in making It very lively. The
prison officers crushed out the entire
disturbance, but not until the Boston
police force had been called to stations.
The Insurrection was quell-id by the
prison officers alone, however. When
things began to look serious a call was
mad to police headquarters.
As near as can be learnad the strike
was part of an organized attempt at
a delivery of prisoners, xne oiiceis
were armed with revolvers and many
of them had clubs. There was a short
battle, in 'the oours ot which several
shots were fired and orjuof the prison
ers was hit in the cheek by a bullet
from an officer's revolver.
The mob was speedily overpowered
and all the members locked up in their
cells, where they made the prison ring
with their yells.

New Haven and the Strike.
The announcement that the various
employes on the railroads leading into
this city had taken or would take steps
to show that they were in sympathy
with the strikers in the west is positively
denied, and there is every reason to be
lieve that they are not even in sympathy
with the men excepts fellow workmen.
The same Is the case in Hartford. No
participation in the strike is indicated
in our sister city. It seems that a
branoh of the American Railway union
was organized to this oity six weeks ago
and that it has a good-sized member
ship. Recording Seoretary Morton of
the Central Labor union said yesterday
that the Central Labor union would not
go out on a strike here on the orders
from President Debs. The union would
have to take action first. - He said Debs

The meeting was unusua-.ly exetl.'n
and many were the expressions of cont
tempt and denunciation of th federal
uower given ent to during thi evening
by the more vehement .if the- r-penkers
on the question at issue. Not onlj(
were the resolutions unanimously
adopted, but a standing committee wa(
appointed which will hold meeilngt
every night and watch the progres(
and movement of the strike tn the west
so as to be ready to call a spoola(
meeting of the Central Labor . un!o

Be It resolved. That we, Ihe Centra)

vention assembled, do heartily sym
pathlze with the American Railway
union In this struie with organized
and concentrated capital, nnd that we
pledge ourselves to support them lnj
every way morally and materially thr.fc
lies In our power. .
And, further, be It resolve-I, That we
condemn the leaders cf the various
labor organizations who have wl-.-iheld
their support from the American Rail

Resolved, That we also condemn thej
action of the attorney general of tha
