Sajt Fjuscuco, Oala., July 5.?Tho
Btrikiog railroad men haro placed Oakland
under aeise. They are abtolnte
CDMtorsof tbe ferrysystem. Theyhavo
stopped ths trains on both Must tad
.connection by rail with >11 tbe oltlea
acroti tfa? bi? bu boon cot oO. They
4itTO selzod the railroad yards it Weat
[Oakland, They are la possession at the
Oakland Molo. Not a wheel in moving.
The striken accomplished tholr work
within an hoar and a half and not a
band was raited against thorn by the
aothorltlo*. Several companies of tho
national guard are under arms and
ready to march at a moment's notice
end was telegraphed for and throe com?anle?
of tbe Fifth regiment arrived
lit nigbt. The city Is in a state of
great excitement.
Whon the railroad officials know
that thoy could not ran their trains
thoy stopped all bat tlio boats on tbo
coast routo and thus complotod tbo
blockade. During the night tho broad
gauge pier was goardod by a few deputy
sheriffs. Tbe day was most sensational
in its events of any of tbe groat strike.
Tho trouble did not begin until 10
o'clock, whon tbo striken, in obedionco
to orders, moved npon tho yards and
round bouse at West Oakland. Both
wore captured, nolthor the officers oi
the city ner officials of tbe company
making eny resistance.
Tho Alameda, Berkeley ana uakiana
trains wcro soixod and stallod. The
towers on tho molo wore captured and
liold, and tho switches so arranged as
Co be useless without ropair. Bands of
etrikori went on the run to tho narrow
jraugo lino, and at Fourth and Webster
vtreota signalled and seizod tho train,
running ono of the coachos down the
road antil it rested across tho tracks of
tho Alameda broad gaugo. As the Alameda
has not boon rnnning for several
days tho blockade on tho ontlro system
is comnlote.
During tho aftornoon tho strikers
made another raid on the round hoase
and finished a small part of their work
loft undone in tho morning. Tiioy aro
determined now to maintain tho
blockade as thov havo established It.
Tho railroad is relying solely on the
assistance of the militia and United
titato8 troops if it is posaiblo to obtain.
Last night tho naval bataliion was
ordered to bo ready to march at a
moment's notice. This branch of tho
military forco, wbilo auxiliary to tho
United States navy, is a part of tho
national guard. Tho bataliion roportod
to headquarters and tho threocompanios'
remained in their armories during the
liy tho FoJcral Troops at tho Stock Yards.
