merit and we have neither wish nor in tention to hinder the carriage oi mails. MB. MBS ENCOURAGED. 'The situation grows more encourag ing each day. There have been no out breaks thus far and we shall do onr beßt to prevent, one. As to the intention of the railroads to import men, I will say that ail they can produce will be only a drop in the bucket. There are too many skilled bands out to fill their places so as to give them even half a chance to ran trains. Anyway, tho Americon sen timent is too strong against men to take strikers' positions to permit a very large body of workmen to act as substitutes ut this time." THE SANTA FE*S DETERMINATION. General Manager Kobinson of the Santa Fe said to an Associated PreßS re porter today that his road is determined to move its trains regularly and on time. "We have sent out a force of switch men with 40 deputy marshals as a guard," Baid Mx. Robinson, "and we intend to eeo our trains suffer no further delays. No arrests will be made unless our men are interfered with but any in terference will be promptly met by the deputies." JUDGE WOODS' ORDER. The deputies sent out today to guard the Santa Fe were appointed under a new order, an injunction issued today by Judge William A. Woods of Indian apolis. Attornejy Bancroft, representing the road, comtaunicated with Judge Woods last night, and this morning the judge telegraphtii instructions to the United States circuit court. Attorney Bancroft uaid it was the intention of the company to start its trains with new men who will be hired to take the places of tbe strikers, and deputy marshals will lie expected to protect the men from interference under judge Woods' injunc tion. Judge Woods left Indianapolis this morning for Chicago, and will be in readiness to enforce the order and issue Other orders if necessary, JBUSINESS STOPPED AT THE STOCKYARDS Many of-the commission houses at the atockyards regard the situation as seri ous, and have notified their clients in lowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and other states not to ship stock unless the railroad agrees to deliver the shipments and to be responsible for any losseß on account of delays. The result is tbat shipments have beea stopped in many instances, and the price of meat is ex pected to make a rapid jump upward be fore long. STOCK YARDS CARS BOYCOTTED. The packers at the stock yards tried to induce the strikers to take eight train loads ol beef held by them through, as their refusal to do so would result in throwing thousands of men at the yards out of employment. The men refused and the trains were returned to the pack ing houses. The packers say they will be afraid to Bend perishable freight out rjf the yards while the etrike continues for fear it will become tied up on the >oad where it will spoil. As a result the business of the atock yards will be tied ap, whether the employees in tbe yard strike or not. Today two trains of live Btock on the Santa Fe and Illinois Cen tra!, outside of the yards, remained on the tracks becauae the trainmen refused to move them. CHICAGO AND ALTON CRIPPLKD. The Chicago and Alton io badly crip pled. Passenger traina have been handled in fairly good shape. Freight traffic ia badly congested and much per ishable goods is being ruined. The American Railway union officials claim they will have the road tied completely. A LIFE OR DEATH STRUGGLE. President Debs says that within 24 hours matters will so shape themselves that a strike on the Burlington will be effective. Said Mr. Debs: "It is life or death with one of the sides. We must kill the managers soon or they will disrupt organized labor for years to come." DEBS AND LYNCH TO BE ARRESTED, It was reported today, in connection with the general managers' conference, tbat plans have been formulated for tbe arrest, on charges of conspiracy, of Presi dent Debi and Organizer Dynob. It was Baid that the general managers had been advised to arrest these men and have them searched for papers that, if found, would furnish indisputable evidence that certain men were amenable to the conspiracy law. MILWAUKEE SHOPS CLOSED. The Milwaukee and St. Faul railroad •bops at Milwaukee were shut down to day on an order from the general offices pf the company in this city. Fifteen hundred men are thrown out of employ ment. This step was taken because many of the employees were dissatis fied, and also on account of the exist ence of the general strike. The general manager said the shut-down was on his order, tbat the officials meant business and would fieht it to the bitter end. MARVIN HUGHITT'S CIRCULAR. The following was distributed this afternoon: to the Employees of the Chicago and North western: The efforts now being made by irre sponsible persons to induce the em ployees of the company to abandon their employment with the avowed object of crippling the company in the discharge of its duty as a common carrier, should meet no favor whatever. There is no grievance between the company and any class of its employees. Every promise and obligation has been and will be faithfully kept. You are therefore urged to continue faithful to the company's in terest in the discharge of your several duties and not to listen to the appeal of Bny persons whatever to make the Chi cago and Northwestern Railway com pany and its employees parties to tbe adjustment of alleged griev ances between another company and its employees. The duty of tho company, under tbe law, both state and congressional, iB so plain that it does not appear to be necessary to make any explanation nor to olfar an apology. It mußt and will operate its railway with out fear or favor, and it will exhaust its resources to theuttermost under the law to protect ite property and the men who are engaged in operating it. You are therefore urged to remain steadfast in your respective placeß and in the dis charge of your duty. [Signed] Marvin Hugiiitt, President. STRIKE NOTES. The General Managers' association, which mot todsy, is fitting up head quaitere and preparing for a long tight with the railroad euiployoea. William Pinlterton waa called in. The .American Bail nay union officials are making threats against the Wabash road, which allows boycotted Western Indiana trains to run over ite trackß. Vice-President Wickes of tbe I'ullmari company b»- c ihe Mobile and Ohio road, which has ta!:en off Pullman care, ran Dnly four Pullmanß and ite comrsct had tr.#iied. ) A Btrike on the Milwaukee and St. Paul is still threatened, as the company has not cut out Pullman care. The strike order tias gone into opera tion on the Chicago and Great Western, which is tieJ up at Deb Moines, St. Paul and Duluth. The baggagemen at the Dearborn sta tion have struck. Twenty marshals were sworn in today to protect the Santa Fe in starting trains. Representatives of tho local Switch men's union report the members are in b> mpattiy with the strikers. What they wili do rs a union will be determined at a meting tonight. Four thousand switchmen ; n Chicago are likely to act as a unit. The Panhandle road brought In 70 men today from Cincinnati, Columbus and Louisville and put them at work in the Uurtis otreet yards under police pro tection. Ail the suburban trains arrived this morning on time. Most of the switches previously operated from the tower house near the union depot have been changed to the old style, making it pos sible to employ inexperienced men. General Manager John M. Egan oi the General Managers' association bu reau says there is no truth in tbe state ment that the Milwaukee and St. Paul will withdraw Pullman cars from its trains. One hundred men have been engaged in Baltimore and Philadelphia to take tbe places of the strikers and are on the way to Chicago. Egan declares tbere will be no difficulty in getting all the men wanted. AT OMAHA. Debt' Order to Strike Not Obeyed by the Local A. ft. I. O.MAnA, June 29.—President Debs of tbe American Railway union has wired Secretary Noble of the local union to etrike at noon. Mr. Noble conferred with President Miller of the local union and others connected with the organiza tion on the proposition, and an answer was returned to the effect that tbe local situation is such that, in the wiedom of the local union, it is deemed highly im practicable to precipitate a strike here, and the argument was made that posi tively no hope existed for the successful carrying out of a boycott, as tbe local union consisted entirely of men not in the train service. An Omaha railroad man explains that the Northwestern boycott arises from the fact that a crew ran a car with an A. R. TJ. grievance committee out to the shops, and the company let out tbe crew when it heard of it. The Chicago roads have agents in Omaha hustling up men to take the places of the A. R. U. men in Chicago. They are meeting with poor encourage ment, for, as far as known not a single man has gone. There are a number oi railroad men in Omaha who aro out of work, and they have been asked if they would go to Chicago and take the places of the strikers if they were wanted. The answer has been an emphatic "no." While the men in Omaha are anxious to go to work they declare they will starve before they will take the places of men who are out for a principle. It is stoutly maintained tbat tbere will be no trouble in Omaba or Council Bluffs transfer, but all admit the condi tion of affairs is extremely critical, and tbat it would not require much to pre cipitate a Etrike. AT TACOMA. The TU-np of the Northern Pacific Ia Not Complete. Tacoma, Wash., June 29.—The Pacific division of the Northern Pacific is not fully tied up, as several local trains were moving today. This morning, after in itiating 200 men, the American Railway union took another vote on tbe subject of striking, and decided to strike by a very small majority. The engineers and conductors belonging to the order still Btood out, and so far all engineers, con ductori, and most of the switchmen have been ready to carry out traina. But for the lack of firemen, other trains, in cluding the overland east, would have gone out. Two hundred and seventy-five em ployees at the Tacoma car shops and 21 freight clerks and 22 truckmen struck today. No freight is moving. Five solid car loads of tea which arrived Sunday from the Orient, are tied up in the yards, and 4,000,000 shingles are piled up on the wharves awaiting shipment. AT ST. LOUIS. A Strike Ordered on the Entire Oonld Bysteni. St. Louis, Mo., June 29.—The dis charge of a Missouri Pacific boss switch man, John Lally, for refueing to handle Pullman cars, will result in the com plete tie-up of the Misßouri-Pacitic and Iron Mountain roads, indeed the entire Gould southwestern system. Only two switch engines are today at work in those yards. President Debs has been requested to order the entire Gould southweatern syetem tied up unless Lally is reinstated. Later—Director Kern of the A. R. U. has received word from President Debs, that a strike has bsen declared on the entire Gould syetem. AT CINCINNATI. Five Thousand Railroad 31 en Oat In the Citj and Enrlrons. Cincinnati, June 29 —Fnlly 5000 rail road men are out here and at Ludlow, Covington and Newport. Acroßa the river the superintendent and office men are making up passenger traina. The railroad posted notices tonight that all who will not come to work tomorrow will be considered trespassers.

Stockton, June 29.—Three passenger steamers left hero this evening with large passenger lists, and every berth is taken on three steamers for tomorrow. Many travelers are coming here ia wag ons to take passage on the steamers. The only trains running from here are to Milton and Merced. Minneapolis, Juno 29 —The Northern Pacific is not turning a wheel. Trains on all other rouda arrived this morning with Pullmans. The Minnesota Central Pullmanß wore placarded with notices that the road is under government con trol, and interference will be punished by the United States court.

General Managsr Frey Says the strike Will Boon Spend Itself — Trains r- Under the Protection of the Courts. San Diego, June 29.—There was no change in the strike situation locally today, except tbat the effect of the Southern Pacific strike reached the city and closed all freight and passenger bnainese. The Santa Fe is in statu quo, Agent Keeler having visited National City and interviewed the train crew as to their wishes in taking out a train. They re iterated that they stood ready to take out the mail, but beyond that would stick to the orders of President Debs. After a long argument Mr. Keeler returned to the city. It is understood that the engineer and conductor of the overland tied up at Na tional City are not in sympathy with the strikers and are ready to take out any train, whether with or without Pull mans. It ia possible that an effort will bo made to get a new crew of subordin ates and get the train out. A prominent member of the A. R. TJ. said tonight that if the worst came, and the company did not capitulate, the fra ternal unions would be called upon to act in unison with the A. R. U. The 'Longshoremen's union, numbering 300 men, is said to stand ready to tie up the company's coal supply, and the coal miners in New Mexico, it is claimed by tbe strikers, are in sympathy with the men. MANAGER PREY'S STATEMENT. TorEKA, June 29.—General Manager Frey of the Santa Fe says: "Our trainß came out of Chicago last night with the Pullman equipment. The moat serious trouble is on the western grand division. Everything is tied up at Raton. Last evening one of our train dispatchers there, named Smith, was chased by 500 men to the hills. The mob notified the chief night train dispatcher that if he went on duty they would kill him. We are handling very liitle freight. In my opinion the strike will soon spend it- Belf." PASSENGER TRAINS MOVING, Kansas City, June 29.—The Santa Fe is moving all passenger trains out of this city today. The road is cot attempting to make up freight trains, as most of the switchmen are out. Pullmans are going through. judge Phillips' order.

Denver, Jnne 29.—Santa Fe train No. 8, which should have lelt here at 11:50 last night, is still here. The train which should have been made up at 0 o'clock had not been switched to the station at 8 o'clock. Trouble is antici pated at midnight, and COO deputies are within reach. All the Denver and Rio Grande traina moved as usual today. In reply to a telegram from the Amer ican Railway union committee at Pueblo asking what policy the Denver and Rio Grande railway would adopt in the Pull man boycott, "President Jeffery replied that his company could exercise no choice in the matter, because of their contract with the Pullman company obliging them to haul the sleepera upon its trains.

STRIKERS HAVE THE UPPER HAND Traffic on the Southern Pacific Paralyzed. The Pacific Coast Division Tied Up as Tight as Wax. Nearly All Class** or Sinployni en Ihe Strike—P.ii.nrir Trains at a Standstill-No Effort to MOV* Them. By tbe Associated Press. San Francisco, June 28.—At the close of the cecond day of the great struggle between the American Railway nnion and the Southern Pacific the strikers eeem to have the upper hand. Traffic en the great railway system la paralyzed, so far as the Pacific coast is concerned. No trains are running north or south, and from Ogden, Deming and £1 Paso west not a wheel is turning. Even tbe company's suburban trains out of San Francisco and Oakland are at a stand still. The ferry boats are running, it is true, but at the Oakland and Alameda moles there are no connecting trains to bear suburban residents to their homes. Many thousands of people who do busi ness in San Francisco and live on the opposite side of the bay are thus put to the greatest inconvenience. NO EFFORT TO MOVE FREIGHT. Little effort has been made to move freight. Evidence that the company expects a protracted struggle was given this afternoon, when from the general office an order was issued closing all the freight offices and informing all the clerks of that department that tbeir pay would cease until further notice. And it is this freight blockade that is the moet disastrous to the business in terests of California. Heavy losses to the fruit-growing interests are inevita ble, and many fruit growers and fruit dealers are face to face with bankruptcy. Hundreds of cars laden with perishable fruit are sidetracked. In Northern California this is tbe fruit men's busiest season, and peaches, apricots, cherries, plums and berrieß are feet ripening in every orchard. A blockade of only a few days will see fruit to the value of hundreds of thousands of dollars too ripe for shipment. All this will be a total loss to tbe growers. A GLOO.MV OUTLOOK. Tonight there Beems little prospect that the blockade will be raieed for at least several days. In tbe Oakland and Sacramento yards a few locomotive en gineers have shown a disposition to stand by the company and take out trains, but, notwithstanding this appar ent willingness on the part of the en gineers, no trains have been moved. The firemen, brakemen and switchmen, almost to a man, stand by tbe union, and co far have effectually blocked all traffic. shops closing down. The company's shops at many points have also shut down. The initiative wr.s taken at Sacramento this morning $& e R MerSß?a wa i& d flßh L'/ISSr pany's telegraph operators all along the coast nave declared in favor of tbe union, and that they are refusing to. transmit railroad business over the wires. OFFICERS NOT DISCOURAGED. Notwithstanding the apparent ad vantages of the American Railway union, tbe general officials of tbe Southern Pacific declare that tbe suc cess of the strike is only temporary, and that tbe company is as determined in its policy of resistance as expressed by President Huntington and General Manager Towne last night. NO VIOLENCE RESORTED TO. Tbe nearest approach to violence so far reported here, occurred at Sacra mento this morning, when tbe strikers threw open tbe drawbridge across tbe Sacramento river and refused to allow an overland passenger train, westbonnd, to pass. Though probably 100 deputy sheriffs and United States marshals have been sworn in here and at Oakland, the company has made no special effort to police its yards and tracks. THE MARSHAL'S POSSE SIDETRACKED. The eastbound overland passenger train that left Oakland late last night was under the protection of United States Marshal Long and a strong posse. This morning the train was sidetracked at Rocklin, beyond Sacra mento, and the marshal's poßse has so far been unable to get back to the city. BROTHERHOOD OFFICIALS DEPLORE THE STRIKE. M. V. Stafford, general chairman of the Pacific division of the Order of Rail way Conductors, and 0. E. Swayne, general chairman of the Pacific division of the Brotherhood of Railway Train men, issued bulletins this afternoon de ploring the strike on the Southern Pa cific system and advising members of these orders to retain their positions and attend to their own duties, regardless oi the American Railway union strike. MAILS FORWARDED BY STEAMER. At the United States poatal headquar ters here it was announced this evening tbat arrangements had been made to for ward mails for Sacramento, Napa and Stockton on the river steamers. So far no steps have been taken to send mails to north andeouth coast points on ocean steamers. WILL CLOSE DOWN. The Chronicle says that a number of prominent business housos, including Holbrook. Merrill & Stetson, Clinton E. Worden & Co. and Spreckela Bros., will cloae up if the tie-up continues two days longer. The closing of the Sprock ets interests, including the sugar re finery, will result in a lobs of employ ment to over 2000 man. Holbrook, Mer rill & Stetson is one of the largest bard ware lirina on the coast, and Worden & Co., manufacturing pharmacists, also have large interests. THE COAST DIVISION TIED UP. The strike haa extended to the coast division of the Southern Pacific between this city and San Luis Obispo. Trains loft Fourth and Townsend streets as usual this morning, but everything there was tied up at noon. AT WEST OAKLAND. Tho Railroad Remains Tied Up as Tight ac Wax. West Oakland, Cal., June 29,—At 5 p. m. the railway tie-up is aa tight as ever, and the only trains running on thia side of the bay are one local run ning to Oakland and a narrow-gauge train to the name point. The American Railway union triad bard to stop these trains, and managed to tie up the nar row-gauge train for an hour. One man, a fireman, quit work, but another man was found to take his place, and traffic was resumed. The one train on the broad-gauge was operated by a regular engineer and tugboat fireman. The union tried hard to pull down tbe engi neer, but without success. Deputy sheriffs are thick at all points, but there is no disturbance of any kind. The railway yards are filled with trains, made up and ready to start, but there is no one to take them out. The rail way officials are making uo efforts to get out trains, and seem to be waiting for something to turn up. Late this afternoon Oakland lodge of tbe Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, comprising 115 conductors, brakeraen, baggagemen and switchmen, held a meeting and deoided not to join the strike. A committee from the A. R. U. was present, but their arguments were unavailing. Tbe railway trainmen ex pressed sympathy with the A. K. 1., but said their bylaws forbade a strike unless they had a grievence of theu own. The A. K. U held a big meeting but did not accomplish mucb. Bakersfield lodge, where the railroad shops are located, telegraphed that a general strike had been ordered there. President Roberts, of the local lodge, said tbat tomorrow the narrow gauge road would be tied up. Division Superintendent Wilder, of the Southern Pacific, said this evening that no attempt would be made to run regular passenger trains. The energies of tbe company are at present devoted to maintaining the suburban service. An attempt may be made tonight, but if the railroad men have any such in tention they are keeping it very quiet. At 9 o'clock there is no change in the situation. No trains except tbe Alame da, Berkeley and Oakland looals are run ning. The railway officials are concen trating their efforts to re-establish this suburban service, and are making no move to run regular passenger trains. A thousand strikers and as many more sympathizers are congregated at tho West Oakland yards, and are showing Bigns of boisterousnees. On the last trip of tbe Oakland local train Engineer Jefferies was hooted at and stones and gravel were thrown at him. One arrest was made by the police. A secret meeting of the A. R, TJ. is in progress, also of the Brotherhood of Lo comotive Engineers. These latter are expected to indorse the strike, if not to participate in it. It is stated that the railway telegraphers are expecting sn order for them to go out. At 11 p. m. West Oakland was as or derly and quiet as any town in Califor nia. The crowds on the street bad gone home, and what promised early in the evening to be an ugly demonstration against Engineer Jefferies proved to be very mild. The crowd became tired of using bad language and throwing stones. The American Railway union and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers are still in session. The engineers will indorse the strike, but will not strike themselves unless they find some griev ance. They will refuse to work with scabs, and individually will help the A. R. U. men all tbey can. Division .Superintendent Wilder to night confessed tbat tbe outlook was very blue for tbe railroad, and said that the company would probably not make much progress for the next two days. The citizsns of West Oakland held an tEe'sVrlkV'lgitafdTrs - Yrom cieoo were present and spoke. They counseled the strikers to commit no vio lence, but to take care that no one hurt them. AT SACRAMENTO. Two Thousand Shopmen Go Oat—The Tle-np Complete. Sacramento, June 29. —Two thousand msn in the Southern Pacific shops here went on a strike this morning, as tbe re sult of the discharge of union brakemen at Oakland last night for refusal to han dle Pullmans. Ths tie-up here is now complete. Tbe west-bound overland, containing Pullmans, was stopped this morning by the strikers throwing open the drawbridge across the Sacramento river. The strikers said they would al low the mail coaches to go by, but not a pound of freight or a single passenger. Two hundred cars of fruit are on the side tracks between Sacramento and Ox den. Fruit is also ripening rapidly in the orchards and if tbe blockade is not raised within a week many ranchers will be ruined. The fruit will soon be too ripe to ship. Steamboats on the Sacra mento river are doing an enormous busi ness, and the crush at tbe landing calls to mind the good old days before rail roads. Portland passengers are going to San Francisco on steamers. The strikers have telused to allow mail cars to move. They say that not a wheel shall turn. The engineers are holding a meeting. A meeting of strik ers is called at Armory hall at 2 p. m. The United States marshals who came up from San Francißco this morning were powerleae, and are sidetracked up the road. An engineer namsd Trembly, who took up a train this morning in op position to the orders of tbe strikers, waa hanged in effigy today. When be gets back his iife will bo in danger. AH is quiet here in railroad circles this evening. A train arrived at sp. m. from the Shasta division, but stopped on the Yolo side of the river, as the main track on this side ia obstructed by the tied up overland express. At 7 o'clock a mixed train came into the city from the San Joaquin valley, but was abandoned by the crew at tbe foot of X street. The strikers are holding an open meeting tonight at Turner ball. The American Railway union sent a committee to Superintendent Wright and Master Mechanic H. S. Small to tender them watctmen to protect rail road property. The officials received the committee courteously and informed them that tbev had watchmen enough, but if they should require their services they would be pleased to call on them as private citizens. The Southern Pacific company today saved the city from a water famine caused by the strike. The city water workß is supplied with coal by the lone Coal and Iron company by train loadß from its mine in Amador, and the sup ply was about to give out to today. As no trains are running the contractors cannot send any coal to the city, and ths engineer of the water works applied to Superintendent Wright for enough coal to keep the city pumps running. Mr. Wright notified him to Bend carts to the railroad company's coal binß and get ail tbe coal necessary while the Bupply holds ont. AT DUNSMUIR. Pullman Cara Cut Ont and Paasengers Delayed. DuNSMCin, Cal., June 29.—When the southbound Oregon train came down yesterday evening tbe Pullmans were cut out, and tbe trainmen offered to take ihi rest of tbe train, but the whole train was held here. This morning a special was made up, and all who wanted to go were taken to Red Bluff. Five families for the east are still in the oars here. The American Railway union has fed them at the hotels. Tbe freight from the south was sidetracked today. The shops are oloted, and not a wheel turns on this division. Twenty-five ladies attending a W. C. T. U. conven tion are detained here. AT PORTLAND. The Southern Paolflo nni Northern P« elHo Tied Op. Portland, Ore., .Tune* 29.—The tie-up here is complete. Neither the Southern Pacific nor the Northern Paclfio took out trains tonight. The Northern Pa cific's Atltntio express was made up ready to leave, but the firemen refused to go. The Southern Pacific's California exoress was also drawn up at the sta tion, but the firemen left the cnb. The United States mails on tbe two trains were taken back to the post office.
