While They Do Not Believe In Coins Out On Ntrlke They Will (live financial A. distance Prealdent Clampers Itoundly I)e- nounoad at lbs Mooting;. Chicago. July 15. This was tho quietest day In the history of the rail road strike. The American Railway union people devoted the day mainly to encouraging their followers to stand firm, and appealing to those not in the ranks of the strikers to join In the movement. The railroad msn, employed and unemployed, attended the meeting in large numbers, and there was no wavering or lack -of enthuBlattm, es pecially when Messrs. Debs and How ard were the orators. A brief meeting of the executive board was held in the morning to hear reports from committees representing their re' spectlve roads as to the condition of the strike and organization. Only a few committees reported. They claimed ac cessions to the ranks and many new' members enrolled who were at work but could be relied upon to go out when ordered. The state and national troops, deputy marshals and police had little to do except to rest on their arms and watch the thousands of sightseers who con gregated wherever there was a military camp. The telegrams received from the Rail way union officers from their organizers and strike leaders In the western states indicates that there was more of a rail road strike on the transcontinental lines outside of Chicago than here and the strength of the union Is expected to be concentrated at those points. The decision of the American Federa tion of Labor to the effect that no actual support would be given to fhe American Railway union strike was virtually an nulled so far as the local trades unions are concerned, by meetings held this afternoon and evening at Bricklayers' hall. In the afternoon the trades and labor assembly, which controls all the labor organizations in Cook county, af filiated with the Federation, together with several outside organizations, such as the briokmakers, resolved to support the American Railway union under all circumstances with financial assistance and by all other means. It was the sense of the meeting that to strike at present would do no good to the union end for this reason no positive action in this respect wa taken. .During the ' meeting -ther action of President Gompers in striving to de feat the object of the' strike was bit terly condemned and the president of the federation was attacked upon all Bides. The name of President Cleveland was Jeered and hissed at both the meet ing of the assembly and at the meet ing to-night. The president of the Sin gle Tax club of Cook county was vir tually hissed himself off the platform because of an ambiguous reference to Cleveland, which was taken as an en dorsement. The endorsement by the trades and labor assembly is considered a most valuable aid to the American Railway union, as the body controls over 103,000 men, included In which are the affili ated orders of the building and trades council, which through President Ryan Ryan renounced all connection with the Pullman boycottera and strikers. The night meeting was held for the purpose of ratifying the action of the Spring field convention. The mention of Debs' name called forth the most vociferous applause and those present were unani mous in endorsement of the American Railway union leader and his methods. It has just developed that Chairman Heathoote of the committee of. strikers at Pullman, sent a letter Thursday to President Debs, of the American Rail way Union, asking him to call off the boycott and strike. No answer has been returned as yet. It is given out that the request of the Pullman strikers to declare the boycott off and permit them to return to work was the real cause of the sending of the conciliatory proposi tion to the general managers. The ma jority of the Pullman employes are anxious to return to work. Fargo, S. D., July IB. The Northern Pacific strike situation is more compli cated to-night than for the past week. The member of the Switchmen's Mu tual Aid association, who had returned to work, all struck at 7 o'clock. The re port of the shooting of Engineer Mar tin, a non-union man, and his fireman out in tne jjaa lianas, Montana, was confirmed to-night. A cowboy rode up to the trsjin and shot both. Both men are said ip have died. Martin was con sidered a leader . for the company against the American Railway union. A committee of Minnesota Farmer's Alli ance men conferred with the Ameri can Railway union and assured them of provisions and money. TROUBLE CAUSED BY RIOTERS, Switches Were Thrown and Freight Trains Sidetracked. Chicago, July 15. Rioters caused trou ble last night in the Belt Line yards at 81st and Wallace' streets. They threw switches leading from the West tern Indiana main tracks into the yards and two freight trains went from the main tracks into the sidings before the engineers discovered their error. No damage was done, but the track was .blocked for some time. Afterwards twitches ; at several points in the fards were thrown and for several hours the road was tied up. Chief. Deputy Marshal Donnelly and twenty-five deputies were on reserve at the government building to-day, but no call for their services was received. Late last night Chairman Egan of the General Managers' association' made-a requisition for ten men for service at the yards of the Chicago and Western road at Forty-seven.th, street and for ix men at the Erie yards. Reports were received to-day that the men had been required to protect dead freight in Its movement eastward and that the work had been accomplished without trouble. A big crowd assembled at each of the yards, but no attempt was made to attack the marshals or to Interfere with the dispatch oft the trains. It was ascertained at the United States marshal's office to-day that tho total number of deputies to whom the oath has been administered since the beginning of the trouble is 3.402, of these 2,006 were railroad men, watchmen and others sworn In as special deputies at the request of the various railroads and on whose account no per diem will bo charged to the government. This leaves about 1,400 men to be paid at the rate of $2.60 per day and expenses and for terms of service ranging from six to seventeen days. The total cost of the service rendered from the marshal's office has not yet been calculated. It was learned to-day that quite a number of deputies were sworn in at the request of agents of steamship docks, sky-scraping buildings and big wholesale and retail establishments. This Indicates the existence during the thick of the troubles of an undercurrent of alarm on the part of local capitalists and business men that was not per mitted to appear on the surface at the time. . IK GOOD CONDITION. Five Thousand a Week for the Hallway Union. Chicago, July 15. There is no truth in the report that the American Rail way union Is bankrupt and from pres ent indications there is no probability of such a thing occurring. A prominent officer of the American Railway union to-day made an esti mate of the running expenses of the office force at $400 a week. The largest telegraph bill for one day was $500, and the association has been accumulating money for over a year. For June the receipts at headquarters for dues alone were , over $10,000. One day's receipts for the dues this month footed up nearly (1,000. ' As the local lodges cover the incidental expenses and the general assessment Is coming in at the rate of $5,000 a week the officers of the or der say they are In' a better condition financially than ever to proceed with the strike. TROOPS PATROL TUB TRACKS. Regulars Have Placed Town Under Mar tial Law. Wichita, Kans., July 15. Temporary quiet has been restored in the Cherokee StripB, Round Pound and South Enid, by the arrival at- eaoh place of two troops of regulars from Fort Rend, who are under orders from Washington to place the towns under martial law and to cause the arrest of all persons im plicated in the outrages of Friday. Troops now patrol the Rock Island tracks. The bridges and track blown up with dynamite have been tempo rarily repaired and trains are again running as usual. YALE-OXFORD GAMES, Keen Interest Is iakeu and All Ticket! Have Been Sold. London, July 16. Neary all the morn ing papers have articles on the Tale- Oxford games to-day. They concur that it is difficult, if not impossible, to fore cast the result, chiefly owing to Tale's different methods of practice. Fry and Swanwlck of Oxford and Sanford nni Sheldon of Tale have virtually recov ered from their injuries. Captain Hickok now walks with ease, yet feels a slight stiffness of the knee. The others are In the pink of condi tion. The rain has rendered high jump ing from the grass impossible, and the event will take place on the raoing track. AH tickets for the games have been sold, and keen Interest Is mani fested in the events. C. B. Fry, the captain of the Oxford team which will battle with Yale to-day, has obtained a unique position in Eng lish sports. He is a Londoner by birth, twenty-two years old, and received his education at Repton school. He went to Oxford three seasons ago, entering at Wadham college, and in his freshman year obtained his "blue" for cricket, association football, and athletics. He signalled his first season in the cricket eleven by a fine score of 108 ' agaiust Somersetshire, and afterward played for Surrey, while this year he is captain of the cricket eleven, and a few days ago soored 118 against Sussex. He was captain of the association football eleven last season, one of the best elevens either university ever had, and he is now president of the Oxford University Athletic association. He is entered for the 100-yard sprint against Yale, and for the broad jump, in which he last year tied the English amateur record at 23 feet 9 inches. He is a very clever billiard plaver, and intends play ing Rugby football next season, with the idea of getting his "blue" at that also. He is about 5 feet 4 inohes tall, but well built, wiry and exceedingly active. no match for zixmeAxan. He and Harry Wheeler Did Good Work at the Paris Races. Paris, July 15.-The American wheel men did fine work at the Veldrome de la Seine to-day. Harry Wheeler was second In the race for the Liege prize, which was won by Louvet. The match between Zimmerman and Bar- den, which was the event of the day, was won in fine, style by the Ameri can. In the first heat of one mile Zim merman finished five lengths m the lead. Barden gave up the second-heat of. five miles after covering but two miles and Zimmerman covered the rest of the ground alone, his time for the total distancebeing 11 minutes, 59 seconds, . Zimmerman won easily In the final heat. In the race of 2,000 metres for the Valenciennes prize Harry Wheeler fin ished second.

As Perna reached the exit a crowd of frenzied men sprang upon him and kicked and clubbed him without mercy and he would have been hanged but for the timely arrival of a constable ac companied by a number of cooler-head ed citizens. The mob, however, fought against giving up the prisoner, and be fore the officer succeeded in reaching him he was nearly kicked to death, The prisoner was given a hearing to day and held in $1,000 bail, FIERCE WORK OF A CYCLONE. Crops Are Laid Low and Hundreds Fowl Blown In the Oeean. ' Newport, R. I., July 15. The cyclone and hail storm of yesterday passed through the very heart of this city and it is estimated that BOO buildings suffered from the effects of the storm. A number of small cottages, each show from twelve to fifty broken window panes. Besides the enormous break age of glass in dwellings business places fared even worse. The Boston store lost 300 large lights and the Perry bouse 200. Examination reveals the fact that many plate glass windows have been cracked. Of course the florists were great sufferers. Carl Jurgens, who had acres of houses in the direct path of the storm, will have to reglaze entirely and he lifts tele graphed for $6,000 worth of glass. This Is a small part Of his loss, for all his plants and fruits were destroyed. In Middletown the farmers while hav ing suffered some breakages of glass and received interior drenching' of their houses, are principally aggrieved over the condition of crops. Corn, wheat, potatoes and all garden prbduoe have been laid so low or' -so beaten to pieces as to be beyond recovery, while their loss of fowls is also dis couraging. In many poultry yards fowls were pelted to death by the hall. In one place 400 fowls were blown into the ocean and drowned. Thousands of dollars' worth of dam age has been done to farmers and In many instances they will be unable to recover from their losses. It Is said that sixty years ago. a similar storm struck Jamestown, across the bay. TAKEN FROM THE TRUST. Pacific Bondholders Should Con test Such Action; ' ' ' - Chicago, July 15. The Kansas Pacific bondholders' oommilte announces that It baa made a thorough examination of the affairs of the trust constituted for the benefit of the bondholders. The ex amination discloses that securities which were deposited In the trust have been taken therefrom. This statement the committee asserts is established by incontrovertible proof. The bondholdv ers, it says, should join in conferring authority upon the committee to contest the legality of such action. If this col lateral can be recovered these bond holders do not need reorganization. AH that they require Is the collection of the property that belongs to them. The committee is advised by counsel that the proceeds of these securities can be recovered and can be made to realise sufficient to pay and discharge v the Kansas Pacific consolidated bonds at their face value. As the mortgage upon the railroad and land grant is Inade quate it is vital to the interests of the bondholders to recover the diverted col lateral assets. It is, however, neces sary, the committee says, that the ac tion of the bondholders should be prac tically unanimous in this essential mat ter. The committee has, therefore, decided to accept deposits of bonds with the Continental Trust company of New Tork and with the State Street Safe Deposit and Trust company of Boston until July 20 before adopting approprl-1 ate measures xor compelling restitution to the trust ' ; r J Grand Opening To-Day. The opening of ex-Councilman George F. Reif s new "Humboldt" sample and pool rooms at the corner of State and Whiting streets, will take place, .this afternoon and evening. An excellent col lation will be served, Dlebel catering. The place is one of the. finest in the city. - , .?. I Drowned While Bathing, Burlington, la., July 15. Martin S.

Tlie munagers of the bouse think they see daylight ahead and that Ihe present week will put all measure of gem.rsJ Intercut and Importance out of the way. , To-morrow will be given up to the consideration of Representative Diilloy's bill for a uni form system of bankruptcy, the vote on passage to be taken at 4:30. In case the bill U out of the way in time the Judici ary committee will be reooguied so that It will have all of Tuesday's session for the discussion of measure reported from It. Nine bills have been selected by the committee for presentation, but It will be Impossible to ctousidcr them all. One of these which Is considered . oX much Importance is that to establish a system of salaries for the marshals, clerks aud attorneys of United States courts and abolishing the practice of paying fees. The bill Is lu some sense un outcome of the investigation into the reported abuses by officials of the United States courts 'u Massachusetts and Ala bamu. Wednesday will be given to the com mittee on military affairs to clear up the more Important bills the passage of which It has recommended. This Is as far as the committee on rules has dis posed of the week, but the probabilities are that before the week closes the bill to amend the interstate commerce act so as to permit the railroad companies to arrange freight and passenger pools will be called up. Considerable opposi tlon to the bill has been expressed and several applications have been made to the committee on rules not to let It have a day until next session. But the expe diency and justice of the proposition are recognized by the managers and they say It shall have consideration. Unless the friends of the measure will consent to strike out the provision permitting appeals to be taken from the rulings of the Interstate commerce committee it is doubtful whether the bill will pass. The senate has made, such rapid progress with the appropriation bills that It is quite possible that the close of the week will see all the departments provided for for the present fiscal year. When this has been accomplish ed the minority will occupy a position of singular advantage 1 regard to the conference reports' on the tariff bill. Should ithose. features of the house bill which the conservative demo crats most object t be'le4nBtated it will be In their power tlsay we are quite ready to vote to adjourn, or to stay here and discuss this matter un til the fourth of next March if need be. There is no rule by fsJtlch you can shut off debate or- compel thfe adoption of a conference report .JSfnich does not concede something to our views. If after the appropriation bills are disposed of the republicans in both senate and house should, combine to break, a quorum it is doubtful whether the democrats would be able with ex traordlnary effort to hold their forces together and to command sufficient votes to adopt the conference report. Some more aggressive, republican op ponents of the tariff bill are hinting at the possibility of such a contingency, But the better opinion seems to be that some kind of an adjustment will be arrived at, though not until after the first of August the date fixed for the bill to take effect has arrived. The anti-option bill was talked to death in the senate in the last congress and it would meet with equally strong opposition If called up for senate ac tion at this session. Almost as much opposition would meet the bill to tor- felt unearned railroad lands which the house passed last week. . NOT A SINGLE BITCH. The Work of the Minneapolis an Har Trip Was Perfect. Boston, July 15. The Post will pub lish an interview with Lewis Nixon, superintendent of construction - of the Cramps, in regard to Saturday's trial of the cruiser Minneapolis.. "If we had had seventy fathoms of water we could have made 21 knots easier than we made 28.06," said Mr. Nixon. "At one point of the course the water was as shallow as nineteen fathoms. The course averaged about forty fath oms, and had it been at that depth all the way along the ship would have gone even better than she did. It is the best course we can get on this coast and of course we are very well satisfied." "How long could she maintain a 24- knot speed?" was asked. 'Oh, as long as you like,' was the re ply. "For four hours, at least, with one gang of men, and for an indefinite time if you make use of relays pro vided, of course, that the vessel could carry the necessary coal. We have all the relays we waut, but the trouble is that the men will not be relieved. There is a sort of sentiment about them wbloh would revolt . against re lief, as they look upon it as a boundless honor to have the running of such a vessel. But with proper relief and careful watching the cruiser could be run for a week or so easily. Theordlnary ocean steamers, you know, can run at top speed, driving and driv ing day after day. Then you are iperfectly satisfied with the work of the Minneapolis?" "Perfectly. She was well timed and there was not a single hitch." FREIGHT TRAIN CUT LOOSE. Striker Cause a "Wreck That WW Cost .

The total registration reached 40,000, of which uumlHir 18,700 came from points outside of Ohio. The total registration at the Montreal convention a year ago was 16,500. There was a very large attoudanoe at the early prayer meeting to-day. The forenoon was spent by the delegates in attendance kt vity. churches. Many of the pulpits were supplied by visiting ministers. Iu the afternoon the bull und tent were filled long before the time; for beginning the servioes aud thousands were unable to gain admit tunoe. Greetings were presented from representatives of the missionary boards of tho various churches. Rev. Herman WarBzawlak of New York spoke of the movement among tho Jews toward Christ. "The Jews," he sald,"have been badly neglected during the past centuries. I plead with you to take the gospel to my people and bring the Jews back to the Saviour. There are 30,000 Jews In Cleveland and but one man seeking their salvation." Miss Frances L. Wlllard was Intro duced as one of America's uncrowned queens. She was greeted by the audi ence Btandlng and giving the Chautau qua salute. She spoke of "Woman and Temperance." In part she said: "I wanted to see you for you do so much good. I wanted to bring you au elder sister's love. It is with joy that I think of these fresh young soldiers; this generous enthusiasm and the beau tiful hopes you represent. In this city twenty years ago the Women's Chris tian Temperance Union was formed. I am oue who believes that women will bless and brighten every plaoe they enter and that they will enter every plpoe. I believe that we are getting ready for greater victories and more wonderful accomplishments than we have ever dreamed of. Woman's mission is not only in the home, but to make the whole world more home like. Protection for the home will become the watchword for the twen tieth century. I am glad you are with us on the picket line for the victorious army of prohibition?" S. Li. Mention of Chicago spoke on "The Christaln Endeavor Missionary Course," and Rev. Gilbert Reld brought a greeting from China. Overflow meetings Were held in the evening. Resolutions were adopted recognizing the sale and use of intoxi cating liquors as the greatest evil of the day, deploring the desecration cf Sabbath day, indorsing the movement for Christian citizenship and express ing faith in the future and the coming of the kingdom of God on earth. Sermons by President B. P. Raymond of Middletown, Conn., and Rev. A. J. Behrens of Brooklyn, N. Y., were fol lowed by consecration services and the thirteenth annual , convention ended with mlzpah. UNION OF COLLEGES. Columbian and Chicago Universities Are to Consolidate. Chicago. July 15. The Columbian uni versity of Washington, D. C, has made a proposition to the University of Chi cago looking to the consolidation of that institution with the University of Chi cago. Dr. Harper left last night for Washington, and it is generally under stood In university circles that the union will be consummated without de lay. The Columbian university has at present about 1,000 students, over one half of whom are connected with the law department. JuBttce Welling was until recently president. At present the institution has no head. The faculty numbers 110 professors and instructors. The value of the property of the uni versity is estimated at $760,00. LIKES ENGLISH METHODS. Talks Abont the Coining Games With Ox ford. London, July 15. The Sportsman prints an interview with Charles H. Sberrlll, Jr., of the Yale graduates' ad visory committee. Sherrill condemned the attack made by some American newspapers on English athletic methods. He could not speak too highly, he said, of the fairness of English starting. judging and measuring. The American method was far too striot. He believed that Sheldon would have an apprecia ble advantage in the broad jump, doing perhaps twenty-three feet. Sherrill expected wooahull to win the half-mile run,- while the contests in throwing the hammer and putting the weight certainly would be won by Yale. He believed, too, that the quarter-mile run might be added to the probable Yale victories. The Queen's club track. he added, was the best be had ever seen and was admirably arranged. The reporter was , much Impressed with the modesty, and courtesy of Mr. Sherrill and his companions. The Chronicle says that Scott of the Oxford team has a lame ankle owing to his striking a hurdle while at practice. Fry and Swanwlck have bruised heels. Robinson has imitated the American by using a steel-handled hammer, with the result that he has beaten his former record by ten feet.' ' , Cholera Still Spreading. St. Petersburg, July 16.

When the steamer Lakine came Into port yester day morutng from PribylohT Island and Dutch Harbor, Captain C. 7. Gilford, of the lost whaler. Abrnm Barker, was aboard as a passenger. Captain Glffoid was brought on bourd May 7, forty miles off Cape Navern. Tho crew were picked up by bark Horatio. It is a thrilling story that the captain tolls. D"The 3d of May," said he, "we were working through the ice in a strong breeze. The Horatio and the Adam Barker were together. We did not hit the loe hard enough to stave In the ship, Sometimes it was hurd to tell what the result would be. Iu the morning we started the pumjis and were startled to find ten feet of wata'. The provisions were under water and our supply of fresh water wus spoiled. We slguallod to the Horatio and she came to us, Some of the crew came aboard, and we started up the pumps to their full oapacity. We pumped until 12:30 and gained only six Inches, Our steam pump gave out and the water gained rapidly on us. Under the circumstances we took our personal ef fects and went aboard the Horatio. Two hours after that the Barker sank in the soa." Captain Glfford further explained that the vessel had "no catch." It left this port December 9. The Barker was built at Fair Haven, Mass., In 1846 and was owned by J. Wing of New Bedford. Little was known by the captain re garding the operations of the Bering sea patrol fleet. The British schooner Wanderer had been overhauled by the Mohican and taken to Dutch Harbor. HIS MOTIVE A PUZZLE. An Unknown Man Knocked Down a Girl and Cnt Up the Furniture. Portland, Me., July 15. A strange affair is reported from Old Orohard Mrs. A. A. Dennett and her daughter Grace, aged sixteen, of this city, have summer cottage there. Last night Grace was alone in the house, her mother being at Saoo, when a man knocked at the door and asked if the young lady was alone. He attempted to enter, but the girl told him to keep out. He knocked her down, hitting her in the stomach and leaving her insensi ble on the floor. He then went into the parlor, toppled over the furniture, throwing small articles on the floor and doing much damage. He then went up stairs to the young lady's room, out all her dresses and underclothes to pieoes with a knife, He also cut the bedclothes and sofa cushion. , When Mrs. Denne-t returned she found the outside door and her daughter insensible. A physloian found that no violenoe had been done her nor was there an attempt at criminal as sault. The man's motive is a puzzle. This is the same young lady whose death was printed in a Portland paper, a notice having Deen received on a postal card. It is evident some one has a spite against her.

The official investigation which the government has been conducting the last few days into the affairs of the postoffice department of the city and other parts of the repub lic has revealed a startling condition of affairs, and there will be a wholesale weeding out of the dishonest employes In the service.' It has been shown that local officials have been systematically robbing of sums of money, which in he aggregate amount to over $100,000. The shortage of the postmaster, Manuel Nava, amounts to over $5,000, and of the oashier of the office to $14,000. Six employes of the city bureau have also been arrested. Their shortage amounts to a considerable sum, but the exact amount has not been made public. Big shortages have been discov ered in outside offices. Postmaster Nava of this city is still a fugitive.
