Plena That At to b Carried Into Effect at Meeting to ba Hald Mast January Tha Federation f Labor Will Not la Represented. Chicago, July S3. The Herald prluti a long artlole giving la detail the plant of (he American Railway Unlou to ab orb the older railway brotherhoods and of the recently organized American Labor Union to take In every clau of labor ezoept railroad employe. The artlole oy (hat aome broad ttateniept were made by offlolalt at the Amertcon Railway Union headquarters yesterday as follows: That on or about January 15, 1895, there would be held In Chicago a con vention composed of representative men of the American Railway union, the United Mine Worker of North Amer ica, the KnlghU of Labor and the Amer ican Labor union. That the American Federation of Labor and the old rail way brotherhood would not be repre sented In this convention. That at this convention all branches of labor represented would be called on to present a succinct report as to the then existing wage aoales and how and 1894. much they had been cut in 1892, 1893 That these wage scales should then be formulated into a demand to be pre sented to the corporations and railroads fixing then on May 1, 1895, with the de mand that they be adjusted to the basis existing prior to the panic and hd times and that if this demand was not granted a general walk-out would fol low. As one officer of the Railway union put it: "The present strike will never be declared off by Mr. Debs, and we expect, if the Chicago switchmen re main firm that the Chicago roads will eventually compromise on a basis sat isfactory to all. There will be a full analysis of wage-scales before any de mand is made on capitalists 'or a change and the east will be as strong ly represented in the new labor organi zations as the west The movement of May 1, 1896, then will be only a re enforcement of the strike begun on June 86, 1894." In this plan much is expected of the new American Labor union, whose membership Is now claimed to be 1,000 and which has opened Its ranks to every class of labor except railroad em ployes. The cost of membership In the American Labor union is the same as that rn the -American: Railway union, tl for a card, the card being good for a year.'"'"'1'"'"4 ' Those behind the plan for the Janu ary convention expect the acquittal of Debs by the courts and that following this he will make a tour of the east, delivering speeches and organizing branches of his order. While cam paigners from the American Labor union will follow him to make Inroads in the ranks of the Qompers followers. The American Railway union officials point to the ruin of the Mutual Aid Association of the Switchmen and with out the rest as soon as soon as it pro vides Insurance and beneficiary depart ments. The union officials regard the Broth erhood of Engineers as practically offi cially dead. They cite the dissolution of lodges of this order at Champagne, Danville, Terra Haute and in all parts of the country, but the east as evidence that the engineers either wish to be Independent or are ripe for a new organ ization. The American Railway union officials oount on a convention In Jan uary of 2,000 delegates, representing every branch of labor from a newsboy to a railroad engineer and with Debs presiding. POWDERED XEAB SHORE. Quests at Seabrlght Witness a Wreck and Rescue. Branchpoint, N. J., July 22. The guests of the Hotel Normandle and res idents along the shore in the vicinity of Seabrlght to-day witnessed the foun dering of the schooner Robert H. Mitchell of Baltimore, Md., about two miles off shore. Captain West of the Seabrlght Life Saving Station and a volunteer crew of seven men reached the wreck in a lifeboat after a hard struggle against the waves, and rescued the crew of five, who had been cling ing to the schooner's rigging over an hour. The schooner sailed from New Tork this, morning for Norfolk, Va., laden with salt Shortly . after noon It was found ;that she was leaking badly. The captain decided to beach her and stood in for shore. The Mitchell, however, soon sank in about seven fathoms of water. Captain Prartt could give no reason for his vessel's springing aleak. She was pretty -old, however, and that may account for the disaster. '' MTUST QTFB UP THE USIOS. "rotable is Anticipated on the Mobile and Ohio Road. Jackson, Tenn., July 22.

The action of the lodge of the American Railway union In the city declaring the Southern Pacific strike oft was brought about by a committee of citizens who showed the strikers that their cause was helpless, and persuaded the men to try to get back while there was yet a chance. A few days ago Superintendent Fill more promlssed a committee that If the strike was declared off unconditionally all the strikers, except those who had taken an active part in the destruc tion of the company's property and committed other overt acts, would be taken back into the employ of the com pany. Yesterday General Towne Informed the committee that when the strike was declared off the company would employ in addition to those now in its service and a few coming to under engage ment, such men as it might need, who had not during the strike wilfully dam aged railway property or forcibly pre vented employes from performing their regular duties. Each case was to be con sidered separately, and to be disposed of according to the merits of the ap plicant. The company would be careful that no individual suffered wrong or injustice at its hands.

Senator In Favor of the Compromise Stand firm It Must Ba Hi areata BUI or K'othlng-lt May B That tha Bill Will B Defeated. Washington, July 22. There Is now no measure on the house docket of such Importance as to command the assign ment of a day for Its consideration. The committee on rules will meet to morrow to decide what committee shall be recognized during the week for presentation of business deolded upon by them. It has finally been de cided by the manager of the house that the Patterson bill to amend the Interstate commerce law so as to permit the railroads upder regulations to be established by the Interstate com merce committees to pool their earnings shall go over to the next session for action. This decision was reached af ter consultation with friends of th measure, although there was great pres sure brought to bear In favor of Im mediate consideration. It Is believed by friends of the bill that Its passage, together with the recent demonstra tion of the ability and determination of the government to protect and pre serve free and untrammelled move ment of commerce between the states will create a foreign demand for rail road securities that will go far toward terminating the present business de pression. All interest In congress the coming week centers about the senate, where the fate of the tariff bill may be de cided by the vote to be taken on the conference report, which Is now before that body for action. Senators charged with responsibility in connection with the tariff bill called upon their col leagues to-day and endeavored to get some light upon the situation. A prom inent democratic leader, chairman of one of the most important senate com mittees and who does not belong to the "conservatives," said that unless something altogether unexpected hap pened before the senate met to-morrow all hone of tariff legislation at this session of congress would be doomed' 'to disapointmertt. This view comes from a senator honest and earnest in his efforts to secure a bill of some sort, and was candidly expressed only after a consultation he had this evening with some of the members of the senate finance committee. There will be no caucus to disouss the situation and It Is known that thus far. the senators who Insisted that th compromise blU Be passed or nonrf have kept clear of their colleagues and have declined to talk the situation over. They stand as firmly as ever where they have always stood, and declare that there is' nothing to discuss; it must be the senate bill or nothing. The managers of the bill on the part of the senate realize this and one says "We went to the extreme of comprom ise when the bill was In committee and there is nothing further that we can yield except immaterial matters. The house asks us to do something that is impossible and the president, who knew beforehand what we were compelled to do, has turned and placed the responsibility upon the shoulders of the senate." When the conference report comes be fore the senate again to-morrow it will be with four motions bearing upon its disposal pending. These are the two motions of Mr. Hill to Instruct the con ferees to recede from the senate amend ment placing coal and Iron ore on the dutiable list; Mr. Vilas' motion that the senate recede from the one-eighth of,a cent differential duty, which it has placed on refined sugar, and Mr. Gray's motion that the senate insist upon its amendments and agree to the house's request for a further conference. There is thought to be no doubt that the oc cupant of the chair to-morrow will rule Mr. Vilas' motion out of order. If Mr. Vilas could secure votes upon his motion it is believed It would prevail. If, as is expected, it should be ruled out it is said by parliamentarians that he can accomplish the same result by moving that the senate Instruct Its conference to recede from that part of the senate amendment which provides for a differential on refined sugar. Mr. Hill's and Mr. Gray's motions are in order and would be gladly voted upon by the senate. But It Is none of these motions that the managers of the bill most fear. According to democratic In formation before Mr. Vilas gets a chance put his motion striking at refined sugar or before the motion can be voted upon one of higher parliamentary standing will be made. It will be a motion that consideration of the measure from the house asking further conference be In definitely postponed. The managers of the bill have some reason to appre hend that this motion may secure five democratic votes. The republicans would vote solidly for it Should the motion to indefinitely postpone the con ference report prevail the tariff bill Will be defeated so far as the senate is con cerned, for it would be a refusal on the part of the senate to agree to a further conference. ' , Mr. Gorman,' Mr. Mills and Mr. Brlce are expected 'to speak to-morrow. Mr. Gorman will reply to some of the 'state ments made by the president in bis let ter, and it is said will claim that Mr. Cleveland knew ' before the -public did what concessions the senate committee had to make. Mr. Gorman will also,' It la said, quote from Mr. Cleveland's in terview about the time the Jones amendments were prepared, and this as going to show that the administra tion knew of the difficulties In the path way of the senate and gave the com mittee its support in Its arduous task.

A nimbly sea, lashed up by a westerly gale, caused oonslernutlon ou ths Cunurd steamship Luoanla on Monday forriio.ni, when he wa about 600 inlli-s out from Queouttown, bouud for thin port. The Luoanla was bounding went ward nearly at top speed, when tbe ware toppled over the port bow and rolled it ft. It spray broke on the proiiiHiiuda deck. The bridge railing wa bviit and twisted. Passenger wbo bad been sitting on chair and looking at the angry sea from tbe main duck, fled from the In vading wuter. A sullur who win kuooked against an Iron railing lout everal teeth and three of hi rib were brokeu. A cablu poasenpr wns throwu against a rail by the iullen checking of the ship' progress. His head wa cut. Just after tho first big ea rolled aboard another followed It, Increasing the ooufusiou, especially among the steerage passengers, of whom there were 465. A wyinun wus knocked dowu and bruised. A part of the torrent i mashed in the thick plate-glass win dows of the library and flooded It, ruin ing some of the upholstery. Au Iron ventilator under the bridge whs twisted out of shape, and other veulllutor wore washed away. The steamship was slowed dowu and no more water camo aboard. One of the passengers on the Lucanla, Mr. D, De Sola Mendes, said yesterday that when the big -Wave came aboard nearly all the ladles were In their berths the sea being pretty rough for such as were not good sailors. Mr. Mendes, to whom big waves, according to his own account, are familiar visions, thinks the wave was a pretty good sized one. A good many of the men were below. Mr. Mendes was one of a party of about a score who were sitting on steamer chair looking at the tumult It was not raining and the sky was almost cloudless. The fair weather gall was pil ing up the seas. He thinks that It was not so much the height of the sea as It was the tremendous forward motion of the ship, which was being run at full speed, which created the disturbance. She plunged her sharp prow deep Into the first wave, the crest of which, Mr. Mendes thinks, cs.me up almost to the bridge. The biggest part of 1C was a solid green mass and swept athwart shlps and tore away about fifteen feet of the port rail. A part of It reached the promenade deck and wrenched from their fastenings two heavy benches. The passengers In steamer chairs on the promenade deck retreated aft and some of the chairs were swept back with them. Vv-V. One young man w'a"- had been enjoy ing the- rlot of the seas was knocked down by the sudden plunge of the ship.

Tested at Governor's Island Vo'jft Use to Soldiers, Lieutenant Treat Says. New York, July 23. W. F. J. Leon ard of 071 Park place, Brooklyn, ex hibited his bullet-proof shield before the officers stationed on Governor's Island yesterday. Two three-inch oak planks were used as a target. A bullet fired from a Winchester rifle penetrated tbe plank 2 1-16 inches. The cartrid ge contained 70 grains of powder and 450 grains of lead. A ball fired from 45 oalibre Springfield rifle penetrated the planking 2 1-4 inches. The cartridge oontalned 70 grains of powder and 500 grains of lead. A second shot was buried 2 1-2 inches in the board. The firing distance in each case was 40 feet. The balls, if fired at a pine wood target, would have penetrated to a depth of 20 baches. A flat shield was strapped to the tar get! The first shto from a 45-calibre Winchester rifle passed through the edge of the shield. Inventor Leonard said no composition covered thispart of the shield. The second shotehMrat- ed the shield one inch. Lleuteqpht C. G. Treat of General O. O. Howard's staff fired the shot from a 45-calibre Springfield rifle. The bullet was buried 1 Inches In the shield. The armor Is 214 inches In thickness. The shot would have broken the wearer's chest. A convex shield was substituted for the flat shield. Lieutenant Treat fired two more shots at a distance of forty feet, using a Springfield rifle. Both balls penetrated the shield seven eighths of an inch. This answered all the claims of the Inventor. The test was deolared off because of rain. Cap tain Coffin refused to allow Leonard to wear the shield, which was now full of holes, and be fired at by one of his men. The army officers at the test were Major Phipps, Captain Coffin, Captain Van Ness, Lieutenant Harris. Lieuten ant Treat, speaking of the shield, says: "The armor has marvellous resisting power. It will turn any rifle ball, but would. not resist a ball thrown by a Hotchklss field gun. If It can be made to - turn, and Is lighter than steel, it will be very useful as defensive armor for field guns, but It would not be use ful' to Boldlers. They would not carry them, If they did, men would throw them away when In action." Captain Coffin says the only advan tage of the shield lies in the fact that it Is about half as heavy as a piece of steel with an equal resisting power. Captain Coffin Invited Inventor Leo nard to a second test with the new shied. Cut to the Water's Edge. Savannah, Ga., July 22.

ISSUED FROM THE 1X101 BEAD QUARTER IS THE J All. He Calls I'pon the Trarellng Tublle Not to PatronlM tin Pullman Care-WIII Tarry tha strike Through and There Will be no surrender. Chicago, July tt -President Deb, Vice President Howard and Secretary K either of the American Railway union, and Editor Rogers of the Railway Times, to-day Issued, from "Headquar ters American Railway union. Cook County Jail," a manifesto calling upon the traveling public to stop patroniz ing Pullman cars a another means of bringing the company to term. The manifesto, in substance says: It Is amost universally conceded that the Pullman company, through oft repeated reduction of wages, excessive rent and mnny causes has grievously wronged Its employes. The refusal to submit to arbitration In any form I proof positive that the company had not faith In the justice of Its cause. In view of the heavy loss entailed such obstinacy on the part of the Pullman company Is deserving of the severest condemnation. The Pullman company makes the plea that tt Is asked to run Its works at a loss. The statement Is false. What was asked was arbitration and .this would have resulted In even handed justice. The Pullman company has robbed Its employes and an investiga tion would have disclosed a state of affairs that would have horrified the nation. This Is why arbitration was refused. The company, while making extortionate charges for sleeping car accommodations, pays Its conductors and porters such paltry wages that they are obliged to depend on the public for support. The Pullman company, still defiant and as cruel to its former employes, as it Is indifferent to the public weal, is de termined to starve its employes into submission. Shall the Pullman com pany have the support of the public in carrying out this hellish policy? We know what the answer will be. The American people uphold justice and they love fair play. And now, in the name of justice and fair play, we appeal to the great Amerlcon public not to ride In a Pullman car until the Pullman company doe jnstice to its employes. Let the oars be absolutely empty. We will then see how long the railway com panies will oe bound by their alleged oontraots to haul Pullman cars. We propose to continue this strike against the Pullman oompany through good and evil report and without regard to ookaequance until - justice shall be done. There will be no surrender. We will use every available means to press the contest. Dungeons shall not daunt ub. The struggle is for humanity and against . the most cruel tyranny and must be crowned with success. QOXTERS ISSUES AS APPEAL.. Be Wants Funds for the Defense of Deb and the Others. New York, July 22. President Gom pers, of the American Federation of La bor, has written an appeal to the public for contributions toward "the Debs le gal defense fund." The appeal pays a high tribute to Debs, and says: "The corporations have their claws ready to fasten them upon the body of Debs, not simply to try and crush him, they hope to awe the men of labor into silence and submission. Debs represents the rights o labor before the law to or ganize to quit work In the defence, protection and advancement of its in terests. "The corporations have their creat ures, Attorney General Olney and others, most skilful to prsecute Debs. He must be defended by counsel equal ly able, and With equal zeal." It Was Vigilant' Day. Kingston, Ireland, July 22. Luck In faint breezes and ability in brisk winds gave victory to the American sloop Vigilant in the fifty mile race yester day, three timeB over the kite-shaped course of the Royal St. George's Yacht club.

The contest was long drawn out, the average speed of the dualists being about 6.6 nautical miles per hour. The Vigilant covered the course in seven hours, fifty minutes and three seconds, and the Britannia in seven hours, fifty-three minutes and forty-two seconds. There were moments when there was some real racing, but, taken ae a whole, the contest was in conclusive.

The Commercial Appeal this morning prints an author ized Interview with Senator Harris by its Washington correspondent In which he refers to the concessions incorpor ated by the senate finance committee and says: "I had two Interviews with the pres ident after the concessions were agreed to and before the passage of the bill and one Interview after the bill had pawed and gone to the conference com mittee of both houses, and while my most distinct understanding was that while the president regretted, even as I regret, the necessity of making such concessions, he thought It wise to pass the bill and so advised, as it materially reduced the rates of tariff taxation im posed by the existing law." Referring to Senators Caffery and Blanchard, who are demanding further oonoesslons and threaten to defeat the bill if they are not granted, Senator Harris says emphatically: "They have secured their utmost limit and while they might delay the final passage they cannot defeat It. If they pursue this course they will lose their differential sugar bounty altogether. The finance committee will now fight It out on this line If the present session Is prolonged indefinitely."

This forenoon the ball grounds at Savin Rock will be scraped and. rolled in order to get them in fine condition for the game between New Haven and Walllngford whioh is to be played there to-morrow, Four of the new players will report this afternoon and lndulee in some bard practice. The team in the future will practioe every forenoon, and this will be something which has been looking in the team's work hereto fore. The reorganized team will by no means be an aggregation of stars, but they will be something wblch is by far more successful in a ball game, and that is to deuelop a system of team play. In the future the tickets for tbe game will be sold at the place where the cars stop at the green, by a man stationed there for that purpose. This will be more convenient for those who go to the game. There is a probability that O'Brien, who pitched for the Holy Cross college team this year, may be secured by the local management. At present he Is visiting friends in the olty. POLICE HAVE CLUES A to the Identity of a Murderer, New London, July 22.

Hunt preach from Mlcah vl, 7, i, 9, the sub ject, "Justice to Worklngmen." lie Oral revlowud the Pullman side of th strikt then stated thut the oaue of thee trouble lay further than the Pullman strike. The great cause of these troubles wa the oppression of labor by capital at tho presvnt, and second, tha prevailing Idea that labor was sj marketable commodity. Rich men gel together, Invest money, buying as low as poMlble, go Into the labor market and buy their labor at the Idea that ths men stand in the market pen, and with a label pinned on their bocks, statins; their market price, whioh has often been fixed by speculation on the re sults of oomblned labor and capital. "I detest this, for In God's sight labor ing men stand clothed with as much dignity and honor as the millionaire, I believe thut Instead of going Into tho market to buy labor they should senki the laboring men to invest their capital of body and mind and have a right to know whether they receive a fair share of the profits. When this view prevails then we shall have a law compelling ar bitration, and the working man's capi tal will be plaoed on a par with monef capital. The law now gives the money capitalist If not satisfied with dlvl dends, the right to ask for an account lng from those In charge before th( courts." He concluded by severely an raigning the Pullman oompany for ltd treatment of starving employes. QARROTBDIX SEW YORK. Two Swindlers Attacked Hanoseok When) He Refused to be Cheated.
