EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL.
SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1877. * THE BIU MI.T1SU M IT. We present ibis morning ibe main features of the proceedings of the fifth day of our great mining suit. The court adjourned yesterday over to Monday, at which time the defense will begin to put in its testimony. From this announcement it is to be inferred that the plaintiff lias rested, although by agreement two more wit nesses will be offered in rebuttal. The Kureka Consolidated has examined five witnesses to wit: Read. Keyes, Raymond, Hunt and James. The two witnesses to be placed on the stand next week will make a total of seven. The Richmond is to be a! lowed an equal number. Frointbecon cluding portion of our telegraphic re port it would appear that the Court is still determine! to reach the end of the case with all possible dispatch. 7t was intimated that the trial should terminate with next week, one day to aach side, being devoted to the arguments of counsel. We do not, however, quite understand how the trial is to be finished at that time with justice to all parties. The Kureka has already consumed five days in the examination of as inauy witueases, and still has two more to place ill the witness box. To commence the arguments next Friday will necessitate the taking of the te*li mony of nine witnesses, seven for the Uichmoud and two for the Kureka, in four days. This would hardly be fair to the Richmond. It would appear that the respective parties should lie treated alike in point of time as well as in the number of witnesses allowed. We extract that tlie Court will arrive at tbis conclusion as the trial pro gresses, and tbat the whole of next week will bo devoted to the testimony, allowing the arguments to be made at the beginning of the week follow ing. TDK OHIO DEMOCRACY. The approaching campaign in Ohio is destined to attract a very great share of publie attention. Tbe Slate Ccnvention of the Democracy was held at Columbus on the 2oth Inst., when the following nominations were made: For Governor, R. M. BLhop; Lieutenant Governor, J. W. Fitch; Judge Supreme Court, J. W. Okey; Attorney General, Isaiah Hellar*; Treasurer, A. S, Howells. Following is the substance of the platform adopted; A strict constitution; home rule; su premacy of the civil over the military power; equality of all citizens; no sumptuary laws; opposition to subsi dies; public land for actnal settlers; common schools; regard the instal lation of Hayes, despite the ma jority vote for Tilden, as a most dangerous encroachment upon pop ular rights; that depression of Industries is due to various Re publican legislation; demand tbe repeal of the resumption act; de nounce the demonetization of silver; demand a law restoring silver to a monetary power; favor the retention of greenbacks an 1 oppose further con traction; congratulate tbe country upon tbe pacific policy of local self government so long advocated by the Democracy and adopted by the Ad ministration, which lias produced har mony in tbe South; the tariir should be for revenue only; the Government should issue all circulating mediums, paper or metal, always of equal tender and Inconvertible, and condemn tbe use of Federal troops to interfere with elections and politics. Senatorial..—Tbe Stock Report says interior Democrats are astonished and yet delighted over the progress Mark McDonald is making in the senatorial tight. They want, aays the same au thority, a new man and new blood. Mark is doubtless prepared to bleed freely for the senatorial persimmon. And after all, Mark baa more brains and nerve and energy than many who have been prominently mentioned for Nargeni’s seat. We would as soon see him carry off the glittering prize as any man in the Golden State. Saruknt’s Suit*.—Senator Sargent 1* alter tome of tbe Bay papers with a sharp stick. He has lately instituted two suits of $25,000 each against the Chronicle and a third against Frank M. Pixley, of the Argonaut, for a similar amount; total, 975,000. Tbis looks like business: also it looks like tbe Senator would bare a pretty healthy bank account for tbe senatorial contest, In the very doubtful event of auoceae lu his Hulls._ The Mining Army.—The Virginia Chronicle baa taken pains to ascertain from the pay rolls the exact number of miners employed on the Comstock at the present time. The whole num ber foots up 3,247. Of this number 1,800 are employed in mines controlled by the Bonanza Arm. 806 in mines under the management of Sharon, or the Bank of California, ami 641 in mlnea run by the Schultz A Van Bar gen partv. The labor prospects ou lb# Comstock are improving slowly. Occident vs. Pcrdy.—A grand trot ting match for 92.000, between Occi dent and Purdy, baa been arranged and will shortly take place in San Kranclaco. H. R. Covey la to drive Occident god James G a a non drive* Purdy. EASTERN NEWS. (SPBC1AL TO THE DAILY SBNTINKL*' YESTERDAY’S DISPATCHES. The Big Strike. THURSDAY NIGHT Ilf CHICAGO. Several Volleys Fired and Many Biotcn Killed or Wcnndei. Chicago, July 26—11:0.» p. m. The firing at the viaduct was lex* deadly than expected. Two volleys were sent into the mob, which had the effect of dispersing it probably for the ■light. No causalties are reported. Three cavalry men came Into Hie sta tion a little while ago con-lderably hurt, but not dangerously, by stones and missiles. Wild rumors are afloat, and some have been telegraphed hence of fearful carnage which has not yet occurred. The total number of those kuown to have l>een killed cannot ex coed fifteen. Of these, three bodies are at the morgue, and the others have been taken in charge by their friends. The name* of the killed are so differ ently reported that they cannot be given with any degree ot certainty. They are Jgenerally unpronounceable, being Polish, Bohemian and oilier for eign names. None of the police have received dangerous wounds, or aught but bard blows. Chicago, July 26—midnight. The situation at this hour is briefly this: The police have retired to a well-earned rest. The Second Regi ment is encamped on the viaduct, where they inteud to stay all night. The mob appears to be dispersed, and few are in sight, but it is not unlikely that they w ill appear before morning and reuew the fight. The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy freight depot is guarded by two companies of United States troops. The armories are gar risoned and all is quiet now. Ail re ports of riots in other parts of the city are false. No trouble has occurred to night, except at the viaduct. The two volleys last fired were fired by the Second Regiment, and resulted in no deaths, so tar us known. Chicago, July 27. At 2 o’clock a. m. the city is very quiet, and will remain so until morn ing. Various estimates were made to night concerning deaths from the •druggie. It is certain that at lea-t a half dozen have been seen to die, but the mob, Indian like, hurried the wounded away before tlieir names could be learned. Doubtless many names of the wounded will appear in the weekly mortality list next Mon day. Some claim that as high as 50 have been killed or mortally wounded. Meeting of the Cabinet—The Gov ernor of Dakota Asks for Troops. Washington, July 20. At a Cabinet meeting to day General Hancock was ordered to proceed to Pittsburg with a large force. He will start immediately. The object of Gen eral Hancock going over the line of the Pennsylvania Railroad to Pitts burg is to aid the Governor of Penn sylvania in protecting workmen in ro building the road, that supplies may be sent to various cities along the line and communication between Philadel phia and the interior of the State be reopened. Another subject in connection with the strike, which was discussed at length, was in regard to United States Courts sustaining receivers appointed by them lor certain wards. The courts are to issue writs to Marshals, in structing them to sec that tlie roads and boards of receivers are not inter fered with by rioters; and the Mar shals have power, if necessary, to summon a force to enforce the orders of their courts. This brings rioters in direct opposition to the power of the Federal Government, should they at tempt to interfere with any roads in the hands of receivers; and it was ar gued that the whole power of the Gov ernment should be brought to bear to sustain the United States Marshals in case of necessity. The following telegram was received to-night from Yankton, Dakota Terri tory, by the Secretary of War: The following telegram is just received from Dead wood, dated July 25: “The Agency Indians are murdering citizens and destroying property in all parts of the country. Twenty ranch men are already dead. Seth 'Bullock. Sheriff of the Territory, has no arms or ammunition. Can a disposition of troops be made tbat will give the Black Hills settlers some protection? (Signed) Jno. C. Pennington, Governor.” The dispatch was referred to Lieuten ant General Sheridan. Itlrlke «*f Pennsylvania Miners. Scranton. Pa.. July 26. The atrike has extended to every branch of industry in Lackawanna Valley. The miners met to day in the woods to the number of 10,000. The answer of President Sloan that the Company could not grant the demaud of twenty-live per cent, advance was read amid profound silence, and res olutions adopted to the effect tbat the men would die before returning to work at starvation wages. The min ing engineers and dump hands struck to-night at six o’clock. They drew the tires out aDd the mines are now flooding. If allowed to become flood ed it will take a year to prepare them for work again. A meeting of prom inent citizens was held to-day at the call of the Mayor, and will meet twice daily till further notice. A Mum Hnlluc at Dmilnoml. Dkadwood, July 26. A large mass meeting was held here this evening for the purpose of organ izing lor home defense against the In dians. The County Commissioners issued a proclamation offering a re ward of $2.'i0 for every Indian killed or captured in the limits of me county.

THE WORKINGMEN STILL DE FIANT. They State their Grievance* to the Governor and Mayor. St. Louis. July 27. Tli# following were received Iasi night by ihe parlies to wboin they are addressed: Headquarters Executive Com ) M1TTEE OF UNIC To John S. Phelps, Governor ot Mis souri: We request your speedy co-opera tion in convening the Legislature and calling for the Immediate passage of an eight hour law, its stringent enforce ment and a penally for all violations of tile same ; ttie non employment of all children under 14 years of age in factories, shops and other uses calcu lated to injure them. Your attention is respectfully called to the fact ttiat a pjouipl compliance with this, our rea sonable demand, and living wages paid by our railway*, will alone bring peace and prosperity, such as we have not seen for the last 15 years. Noth ing less than u full compliance with ibis, our just demand, made purely in the interest of our national welfare, will arrest the tidal wave of revolu tion. Threats, or organized armies, will not turn the toilers of this nation from their honest purpose, but rattier serve to intlaiiiH the minds of the mul titude and lead to acts of violeuce. Yours, in the nation’s welfare. (signedj Executive Committee of Union Workingmen. To the Hon. Henry Overstolz, Mayor of St. Louis: Sir: —We, the authorized representa tives of the industrial population of St. Louis, have called upon you to request your co operation in devising means to procure food for those actually in a destitute condition. In order to save a useless waste of your time, it is neces sary, and weal once say, that al I oilers of work during tiie national strike can not be considered by us as a remedy uuder present circumstances; for we* are tuliy determined lo hold out until the principles we are contending tor are carried. It is llie earnest desireol every honest toiler iu St. Louis to ac coir.plish their purpose in as orderly a way as this dire contingency will al low. The contingency tor food is al ready being tell, therefore to avoid plunder, arson or violence, by persons made desperate by destitution, we are ready to concur with your Honor in taking timely measures to supply the immediate wants of the ioodless, and respectfully offer the following sug gestions, viz: If it is not in our power to relieve this distress, we request that a convention of the ineichants he called by you, to meet and couler with us as to the shortest and best way to proeure food for our distressed brothers and their families. Each member ot all organizations will lin'd himself individually and collectively responsible to pay for all food procur ed by this order: that we, the tin fortunate toiling citizens desire to faith fully maintain the majesty of the lawr, whilst we are contending for our un alterable rights, therefore, we in good faith give you earnest assuiance to assist in maintaining order and pro tecting property. Further, in order to avoid riot, we havedetermined to have no large processions until our organ ization is so complete as lo positively assure the citizens of St. Louis of a perfect maintenance of order, and full protection to life and property. In the name of all the workingmen’s asso ciations, bv the Executive Committee of the U tilled Workingmen’s party ol St. Louis. St Louis, July 27. The streets are less crowded and there 19 a general impression that the worst is over. The M. P. road Las commenced running freight trains. Tile Latest from t'taletttin. Chicago, July 27. The list of casualties indicates tiiat the police received more injuries iu proportion than the crowd. Such, however, is uot tbe case. The fact of s man acting in a reportorial capacity militated against him with the mob, and any inquiry directed to any of the rioters as to the name or circum stances of killing or wounding, was the signal for suspicion on the inquir er, and for an attack upon him w lien ever it seemed safe to maae it. A fea ture of the tights was the frequent par ticipation of women, who tired shots from inside and outside of their houses, and hurled invectives, stones and mud in liseriminately at all who wore unite shirts or blue costs. Much dissatisfaction is expre-sed at tile or ders given tbe latter through tbe May or to avoid kilimg. It is stated tiiat should tlie moll gather and meet ilie police again, that the la t-r are in structed to -pare no more lives. The thoroughfares of the city have been divested of lhe thieves, tramps and loafers who usually infest them and wlio How have gone to join the mnh. Depredations are uot uncommon, and yesterday them were several robberies iu broad daylight. It is stated that tramps are coining into the city. 1 p. m.—The seat of the ha-al war lias been moved, and is now in I lie vicinity of Archer avenue and Hal stead street, four miles away. The moli began to gather this morning, but not in great force. Nocara are allowed to run on Halstead street north of the viaduct, snd none are running on Clinton «m1 Jefferson s'reets. Some laborers at the Wcs'ern avonue stables 1 struck this morning, and formed in line, intending to force other stable* into the strike. They were dispersed. Last night, as James J. White, a re s|>eotpd member of the Chicago Hoard of Trade, wh8 patrolling bis beat at I^wndale, lie discovered a suspicious : character and arrested him. He had taken his prisoner some distance when tlie trump drew a revolver from his pocket, placed it to White's forehead, tired, and instantly killed bis captor and escaped. The railroads are resuming business, both freight and passenger. They have had no trouble with their men al any tune, except In relation to wages, and it is believed they have either compromised that question or left it to arbitration. The officials and men are equally reiicent on the subject. At lt'JOa S|iecial from the scene of contl cl says a crowd which assembled at the corner of Halstead street and Archer avenue, was charged and dis persed by tlie police. The rioters are evidently demoralized. Texas Knllroads Join Ike ktrike. (Jai.vicsto*, July ‘li. The employes of the Texas Central Railroad at Corsicans struck yester day.

A special from Vienna says peace rumors still circulate. Everybody is couviDced it is the result of the main tenance of an understanding between the three great powers. It is felt Dial tile moment for action is approaching. The barbarities committed by Mo hammedans at all fioiius, as well as by Russians and Hulgarians, will no longer allow an unconcerned view of tlie position of the unfortunate Chris tians. The population of Austro Hungary in particular is interested. The schemes attributed to England of occupying, first, Gallipoli, and next, perhaps, Cons'ant iuople, do not pre cede the belief in any early peace. Constantinople, July 27.

The Time*’ Ruchare-i corre«i on-lent stales that the Ru-sian Commander, after requesting Roumanians to occupy Nikopo l-, so dial the Ru—ian garrison might lie able to act against ibe Turks from Pienua, appears to have succeed ed in coneentraling -ulllcient troop* around Pleona to enable biin to dis pense with the Nikopolis garrison. Thereupon die Roumanians were in formed that their division would not be Deeded, proving an understanding by which the Roumanian troops are to i*i called upon when needed, and also that the Hn«sian« do not anticipate any danger from the Turk* at Pleona. It i* believed that the Russians have completed their linearouud Rustchuk, which lias been advanced in some places near enough for them to throw shells a* far as the inner line of forti fication*. hut ttje actual aiege has not liegun. Reinforcement* have been sent from the Csarowits’ army around Rustchuk to join the Russians before Pleona. A dispatch from Kalarash says the Russisn shells have already caused several fires in f*ili*tria. This, how ever is unconfirmed aud thought to be highly improbable. PACIFIC COAST. BAN FRANCISCO.

Tills morning a fellow entered Shaf fer's cigar store, on Kearny street, and demanded that Shatter instantly dis charge all Chinese employed in his manufacturing department, or take the consequences.

Two boys were arrested this morn* In* for participating in the attack on tile San Francisco fuse factory on Channel street. Chinaineu are em ployed in the building and occupied the adjoining house, which the hood lums tried to burn down.
