Tue Cabinet was in session two hours
yesterday, and all of the time was occu
pied in discussing the existing labor
trouble. Though it was not deemed
necessary that the Federal government

Cabinet were of the opinion that quiet
will soon prevail throughout the coun
try- ___________
JUDGlNcffrom the nature of the res
olutions passed upon by capital unions
in large cities, the present working
man's war is having some effect. Fear
will accomplish where petitions fail, as
tlie following dispatch indicates: The
Commercial and Maritime Exchanges
and Board of Trade of Philadelphia
adopted resolutions requesting Presi
dent Hayes to use such force by nil
increase of the military forces of the
nation, not only to suppress all unlawful
violence, but to secure protectiou
against any recurrence of the same.
The workingmen’s strike lias reached
its zenith, and in point of extent is
unequalled lu the annals of labor
movements. Business throughout the
country is paralyzed and transportation
entirely suspended. So far, very few
compromises or concessions have been
made, but wherever offered were ac
cepted by the strikers. Ample ar
rangements have been made in all of
the larger cities to protect property
and suppress lawlessness; and in many
places plans are being perfected to fur
nish work at living wages and other
wise relieve the wants of those who
were driven to the extreme of demand
ing that which has been denied them
too long—employment and just com
pensation.

The Chicago Commune.
Chicago, July 25. Those engaged in
tlie strike yesterday assembled again
to-day, and early in the forenoon the
whole city became a scene of excite
ment. The crowd at 22d street were
ordered to d isperse by the police but
refused, and were attacked by them.
In tlie fight that ensued several were
seriously injured. Only two of the
police were hurt and they not seriously.
Tlie gang are about of the same mate
rial as that of yesterday, and dispersed
when the police fired at them.
Other branches of tlie so-called work
ingmen have scattered all over the
town. Tlie Union stock rolling mills
and malleable iron works, on the South
side, have been closed and their 500
hands are idle.
A gang are running the street cars
into tlie stables ou the Soutli side.
Tlie railroads are in statu quo. with
tlie imssenger and mail trains running.
Tlie North side mob is the most dis
orderly and are busy breaking windows
wherever resisted.
The strikers drove tlie police back
from tlie Nortli side rolling mills, and
they were compelled to return to their
station. Gen. Torrance, commanding
tlie militia, has lieen notified.
Many arrests have been made, cliielly
of vagabonds and thieves, who consti
tute tlie crowd.
Some sailors struck lust night, but
this movement lias met witli but little
success. About 250 veterans are now
enrolled. Vast liuiuliers are said to be
assembling in the lumber districts. All
saloons on tlie West side are closed.
Early this morning some roughs board
ed tlie outgoing train on the Illinois
Central and compelled tlie engineer to
return.
Tlie strikers ditched an incoming
train, from Omaha, last night.
Chicago, July 25.—11:15 p. m.—Tlie
night so far lias been one of excitement
and trouble. The meeting which was
to have lieen held by the Communists
on Market street, was broken up in its
incipiency by a good force of police.
After a battle witli stones and sticks
ou one side, and witli blank cartridges
and billies on the other, the mob run
away, but . not without notifying the
IKilice that they would have revenge.
After they separated from (lie police a
band of them broke opeu a gun shop
on the West side, taking some fifty
fifty guns and a quantity of ammuni
tion.
At about 7 o'clock a bloody row be
gan at tlie corner of 10th and Halstead
streets, where the police, in attempting
to disperse the crowd, were overpow
ered and compelled to take refuge in
tlie round house of tlie Chicago, Bur
lington & Quincy railroad. They were
soon reinforced, niul made a stand on
tlie Halstead street viaduct, where the
crowd became aggressive, and a regu
lar battle ensued, which has just been
concluded. Tlie police used their clubs
ami revolvers with considerrble effect.
They killed a young man named l’at
Cooney, a striking brakeman, and Ed.
McGeury was fatally shot. Besides
these, some 20 others were more or less
injured. The police received nothing
but bruises from stones, fists, etc.
The rioters were finally driven off.
Various exciting rumors are abroad,
but these are the only facts that can tie
gleaned of actual encounters.
Tlie rioters have compelled tlie West
side street ears to lay off.
News lias just been received of a
light between the mob and police ut tlie
corner of Canal and Jackson streets,
in which tlie former came off worst,
several of them being laid up by blows
from clubs, and others being lodged in
tlie station house.
Tlie coal men at Waterford's have
been compelled to quit work, and tlie
shot tower lias been closed.
Shamokin’s Shindy.
Pottsville, July 15.—Workingmen's
meetings were held at Sliamokin, this
evening. A number of men were of
fered work at SI per day, hut refused.
Others who were willing to accept this
were hissed and hooted. Crowds par
aded the streets. An effort was made
to raid tlie Northern Central railroad
depot, but 700 citizens, fully armed,
dis|>crsed tlie mob.
The mob gutted tlie Reading depot,
carrying off considerable goods. Tlie
operator on duty and others escaped
through back doors.
Bad News From ’Frisco.
San Francisco, July 25.—Arrange
ments are ]>erfected here for tlie preser
vation of peace, although a serious
time is anticipated. The anti-Chinese
movement seems to be gaining ground
and it is probable an attempt will lie
made to destroy tlie Chinese quarters
to-night. At Bp. m., while the citi
zens’ meeting was in session, an alarm
of fire from the Pacific Mail dock crea
ted much alarm. The fire is still rag
ing in the direction of the Mail dock,
and spreading nortnward along tlie city
front, in tlie lumber yards and west
ward towards Front street. The mob
are becoming more demonstrative and
with difficulty are held in check. They
> are attacking tlie police and vigilantes
i with stones. Tlie force charged on the
| crowd with clubs and pistols, firing
j about titty shots, and forced them back.
Gen. Cobli, In charge of the vigilantes,
reiiorts tlie riot increasing, and asks
that the military be dispatched to his
assistance, but Chief of Police Ellis
declines to have tlie troops ordered out
except as a last resort.
Reinforcements of vigilantes have
been dispatched to the scene, and now
about 400 are on duty there besides the
police. A strong force of vigilantes
are held at the City Hall, to be sent
when required, and a number remain
at Horticultural Hall.
Later.—The city fire alarm was
just turned on the corner of Mission
and Stewart streets, a few blocks from
the present conflagration, and in the
immediate vicinity of the extensive
lumber yards and manufacturing es
tablishments.
The Trouble in Toledo.
Toledo, July 25.—The stevedores and
laborers to-day adopted a platform that
all workingmen and mechanics co-oper
nte with the striking railroad men, and
ask a reasonable price, on tlie basis of
82.50 to *3.00 per day for mechanics,
and 81.50 for laborers, requesting all
mechanics and laborers to join the
railroad men, who have struck; asking
the mayor to close all saloons; deplor
ing vandalism; the object being merely
to obtain their rights; recommending
the appointment of a committee of
safety to protect all property.
Mayor Jones made a Bpeecli, counsel
ing moderation and firmness. The
crowd then proceeded to tlie manufac
turing places and ordered all the men
to quit work. Their demands were
universally complied with, and every
large establishment in tlie city is now
closed. There will be an immense mass
meeting of citizens to-night.
Probable Compromise Between the Erie
and Strikers.
Ilornellsville, N. Y., July 25. —A
private conference was held this morn
ing between Supt. Bowen, of the .Erie
road, and Hon. Horace Bemis and
Miles W. Hawley, council for the dis
affected men. No definite result was
reached, though tlie council have hopes
of an honorable settlement. Both sides
have made concessions.
No Passengers, No Mail.
Scranton, July 25.—Tlie excitement
here is intense. All trains on the Del
aware, Lackawanna & Western road
liave lieen stopped. When the mail
from Binghampton for New York ar
rived there ttiis morning, two passen
ger care were detached by tlie strikers,
who said nothing but tlie mail could
be allowed to run. Superintendent
Halstead said tlie mail car would not
run unless tlie passenger cars were also
I>ermitted, and this made tlie strikers
very indignant. The superintendent
was firm, however, and the mails were
taken from tlie car, which was promptly
switched off on a siding. The strikers
telegraphed at once to the state author
ities that tlie company refused to run
tlie mail, and they would run it if ne
cessary, and furnish a fireman and
engineer. A dispatch to tlie same
effect was sent to tlie postollice author
ities at Washington.
Tlie streets are thronged with men
from tlie mines, roads and iron mills.
He Agreed to an Increase.
St. Louis, July 25.—A delegation of
about 300 who were sent to the levee
by the workingmen’s executive com
mittee, boarded the steamer Centen
nial, just as she was pushing out for
New Orleans. They stopped her and
demanded that the captain should
sign an agreement to pay a specified
increase in wages. He did so, and tlie
boat departed.
Enrolled in the Army of Strikers.
Harrisburg, July 25.—Freight trains
on Schuylkill & Susquehanna railroad
were stopped this morning. Passenger
trains uninterrupted.
Louisville, July 25.—The laboring
men on tlie 1/. & N. railroad not in
cluded in tlie number whose wages
was raised yesterday, liave quit work,
and so liave tlie moulders and workmen
generally.
Patterson, July 25.—Tlie strike on
tlie Erie railway here is at a dead-lock,
and the Western road is blockaded at
Kingsland. Tlie striking silk weavers
here are becoming demonstrative.
Bridgeport, Conn., July 25.—The
monlders, some forty in number, in
Howe’s sewing machine factory, struck
work yesterday. They say they will
not resume work until they receive the
back pay due them.
St. Thomas, Ont., July 25—A Great
Western railroad train, ordered to take
the Canadian southern passengers, was
taken possession of by strikers at 1
o’clock this afternoon, and had to go
back to the depot. The strikers refuse
to let the express train go east.
Newark, N. J., July 25.—The engi
neers on tlie Delaware, Lackawanna &
Western railroad, after a long session
in Hoboken, decided to strike at (i
o'clock tliis evening, and no trains liave
passed here since. Tlie tracks and
depot are deserted.
Evansville, Ind., July 25.—The em
ployes as the St. Louis and Southeast
ern struck to-night, and freights have
been ordered not to leave after
midnight. An enthusiastic but quiet
meeting was held to-night.
Jersey City, July 25.—The strike oil
tlie New Jersey Central is complete.
Passenger cars liave been detached at
Fhillipsburg and the passengers de
tained.;
Newark, N. J., July 25.—The engi
neers on tlie Morris A Essex railroad,
at Hoboken, struck this evening, and
travel is suspended.
St. Louis In tbe Lead.
St. Louis, July 25.—This afternoon
a large crowd of striking mechanics
visited a large number of manufactur
ing establishments in tlie southern part
of the city, and compelled all tlie em
ployes to stop work. In addition to
these quite a number of estabilisliments
were closed by tlie employes voluntarily
quitting work.
Tlie workingmen’s party held another
meeting to-night, and marked out a
programme for to-morrow. It now
seems probable that the movement will
not stop until nearly all the mechanics
and laborers in tlie city liave either
joined of their own volition or have been
coerced into it.
The employes of the Vulcan iron
works nt Carondelet, numbering sev
eral hundreds, struck to-day.
CREDITABLE CARD.
Praiseworthy Action of Strikers.
Erie, Pa., July 25.—Tlie passengers
blockaded here liave issued the follow
ing card to tlie public: ”We, tbe un
dersigned passengers who liave been
detained in the trains at this place
during the past twenty-four hours, wish
to express the indignation we reel tow
ard the railroad company for what we
liave every reason to believe lias been
an uncalled for abandonment of their
trains at this point. The strikers here
liave been remarkably peaceable and
orderly, and liave shown every mark of
kindness to the passengers, and liave
used every exertion in their power to
forward all mail and passenger trains
from this point, and have been pre
vented from doing so only by the imper
ative orders of the railroad managers.
As an example of tbe kindness of tbe
strikers towards us, at tlieir meeting
last evening a contribution was taken
to defray the expenses of_the passengers
who were unprepared for delay, many
ladies and children being provided for
at tlie hotels at the expense of tlie
strikers. We desire also to express our
thanks for tlie kindness shown us by
the citizens of Erie.’’ Signed by 71
passengers.
CALIFORNIA.
Americans at the Mercy of Mexicans.
San Francisco, July 25.—A San Die
go dispatch to the Union, lias tlie fol
lowing from Campo this evening: Our
frontier difficulties are still raging.
Tilings are coming to a focus. The
Mexicans have formed a kind of mar
tial law and are preparing for any
attack that may appear, but througli
aid and influence, brought to bear ujion
the officials, we arc in hopes of saving
tlie lives of our friends, at a sacrifice
of all property taken from them.
THE IDAHO INDIAN WAR.
Digging the Pit for Joseph.
Helena, July 25.—A letter from Mis
soula, dated July 23d, via Deer Lodge,
July 25th, from William Silverthrone,
who says he started for Lewiston two
weeks since, to buy horses, and was
captured by Joseph’s band and detained
eight days. He escaped last night and
came to Lient. Woodbridge's picket on
the Lolo trail. He says tlie hand is
within 40 miles of Missoula and are
300 strong. Capt, Hawn starts up
Lolo to-day with 75 volunteers and 50
regulars, to meet them. Silverthorne
says they have only 30 horses. Rifle
pits are being dug at tlie post.
Other letters confirm the report, but
suggest that it is Looking-Glass' band.
Capt. Rawn proposes that whoever they
are they shall surrender or fight.
As an evidence “how far 810 will
go,’’ tlie Ashland Press relates this
story of a recent tourist thither: "Stop
ping at Marquette, lie chartered a car
riage to take him to the hotel, and
found on iiis arrival that lie lmd nothing
smaller than a ten, which the driver
could not change, so the amount was
charged until the bill could be broken.
He purchased at different places two
shirts, 85;cigars81;billiards,81.50;lem
onades, 84.80; mining stock, 75 cents;
carpet bag, 83.50; gloves, 82; hotel bill,
83, and divers other articles amounting
to 843.75, but did not find any one able
to break tlie note. He says the people
about the streets pointed him out as tlie
man who had 810, and that although lie
had read the story of Mrs. Brown’s
boarding house, lie had not, before his
Marquette trip, any realizing sense of
‘how far 810 will go.' ’’
Now is the time to advertise.

had run my Wheeler No. 5 Mower, and If so,
how It worked. I will say that I started It
In July in the heaviest Alfalfa I ever saw. It
seemed almost Imnossibleto cut It with any
thing. It was lodged and tangled in many
places; but to my surprise the Wheeler walk
ed through It with ease, shaving the ground
clenn and smooth. My machine lias cut the
hay on throe ranches this season, and with
the exception that I have ground off the
sections In sharpening, it is now apparently
as goes! as new. Yours, Etc.,
