Tbe Ba'tiniora and Ohio this morning attempted to start a freight but the train now stands at South Chicago minus links and pins which the etrikurs have taken. Tlie Chicago and Grand Trunk and Wabash railroad experienced little or no delaye. The switchmen of tbe Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul held two meetings today, with representatives from the company. The latter tried in vain to indnce tbe men to return to work. While a number favored resuming, the majority insisted upon continuing the Btrike. All today three Rock Island passenger trains stood on a siding at Blue Island, where they had been thrown Saturday night by the strikers. Nearly b'UO pas sengers, including many women and children, passed Saturday and today with very little food and less water. Early this morning some of tbe male passengers endeavored to connect a hose with the village water main to proenre water for tbe blockaded cars for drink ing and toilet purposes. The strikers on watch immediately interposed and said if che attempt was made tbey would cnt the bose. Such of the passengers aa could afford it hired conveyances during the forenoon and drove to West Pull man, whence they came to the city on the electric care, but the majority of tbe unfortunates spent the day sweltering and hoping in vain the company would find some way to relieve them. Several raids were made on the village stores for food, bnt tbe supply waa inadequate. Tbe two or three little hotels established prices ior sandwiches and imitation iced tea whioh would nave horrified a viaitor to tbe world's fair, and altogether the passengers pat in a moat miserable day.

Requi- Bitions for additional men began coming in from the various railroads aa coon aa the offico was opened. The Santa Fe asked for 20 men to be used at Eight eenth street, and announced that it would want more tomorrow.

Superintendent Troy,of the railway ser vice, asked that more depntiea boeentto Bine Island as he had been notified that the strikers there, numbering about 000, were becoming nnrnly, and tbe officera were unable to do anything with them. More deputies were cent. Thirty depu tiea were sent to Harvey to help move trains. Marahal Arnold said about 300 deputies had been sworn in. Tbe great est difficulty he encountered waa in arm ing the men, but revolvere were bought at pawnshops and various etoraa, and there was no delay in Bending the men •nt on this account. He thought he wonld be able to fill all the requests made on bim for depntiee. nfeThe firemen on the Northwestern went ont here today, refusing to work with scab labor. The Illinois Central sub urban firemen have quit for tbe same cause and the auburban service is again abandoned. Tbe Brotherhood of Engineers of the Rock Island held a meeting today at Blue Island to discuss the strike situa tion and decide on their attitude toward tbe company.

All trains on tbe other lines arrived and departed as usual. The Santa Fe people announce that they will resume freight traffic tomorrow morning, which will, in a measure, test the strikers' strength to the utmost. If the road succeeds in moving ita freight traina it will go a long way towards de feating tbe ends Bought by the etrikere. The latter feel confident, however, of their ability to maintain an unbroken front, and bold that the Santa Fe can not get the asaietance necessary to carry out their purpose.

The strikers are confident that they can keep the road blockaded from this point. The railroad officials announced last evening that they would run a train to San Franciueo and they succeeded after a good c'etl of trouble. It was tbe in tention to havo the 7 o'clock passenger train for Ban Francisco leave on time, but the strikers were on watch to inter cept scab firemen and the crowd was bo iarge that it was feared a riot would be the reault. The chief of police and sheriff were on band, and while the ciowd was at the depot the eherilf, chief of police and a deputy sheriff slipped to the freight yard whero a passenger train, composed of three coaches aud a baggage car were already made up. The yard hands had some steam up in the engine in the round house nnd the chief of police and sheriff took charge of the cab while the deputy sheriff looked after the tender. A crowd of Btrikers surrounded the engine, but the officers refused to let tbe men aboard. Presently Engineer James Hewett ap peared on the ecene and took his Boat on the engine.

After tbe train bad gone the strikers learned that tbe fireman waa Ed Hoff, a scab who was taken off of the Monterey ex press Saturday. The officers accom panied the train aa far as Mountain View, where they boarded train No, 6, which left San Francisco for Monterey at 10:40 o'clock. The train arrived in this city at 11:50, with Engineer Hib bard aud tbe scab fireman in tbe cab. The sheriff and chief of police would not allow the strikers to board the engine to talk to the fireman. Division Superintendent Haydock and Resident EngineerCulver iil were dv the train and took the place of the striking brakeman. Tbe train pulled out of San Joae and reached its destination without further delay. Tho chief of police and the sheriff were hissed by the crowd for the stand taken by them. This afternoon tbe officiate attempted to start a train for San Francisco but the fireman refused to leave the ticket office. He was afraid the crowd would mob him. After several attempts to get other firemen the idea of dispatching the train was abandoned. No train arrived from San Francisco thia evening on tbe coast diviaion.

Aa long as the ice holds ont, and there is enough to last about 12 days, the fruit wiil be all right. Tbe dining car that wua brought to Tiuckee on Thursday night is still here. Not even the yard engine has been out since Fri day noon. An attempt was made early this morn ing to burn the Truckee Lumber com pany's box factory and sawmill. The fire was discovered by employees before it waa well under headway, or it would have been almost impossible to save tbe town from destruction. The question of wages between some of the employees and tbe company ia supposed to be the cause of the incendiary act. AT LATHROP.

Several deputy United Statea marshals were guarding the ensine and the sheriff had also reeponded to the call of the railroad oliiolals for protection. The engine bad not been in the yards live minutes when it was disabled and there is little likeli hood of the company being able to move the train tonight. Three engines already in the roundhouse here are rendered unfit for nse until repairs ara made, and this makea the fourth ono that the strikers have tamporod with. Four Puliman cars on tbe delayed train are also disabled. Tho Btrikers laugh at the efforts made to move the train. THE OREGON EXPRESS. Its Further Fraerfiii Stopped at Red Bluff.

Several hundred people met tbe train at tbe depot but there waa no dieturbance. Ineffectual attempts to induce the engineer and fireman to quit wero made by the A. R. U. men, but the preaence of a poese of United Statea deputy marshals aaeisted in the maintenance of order. The train proceeded to National City after dis charging the moils, and it ia announced that a train will be made up to leave on echedulo time in the morning. The Btrikeia insist that notwithstanding the marshal's posee thia wiil not be per mitted, and trouble wae anticipated at National City tonight. No disturbance there has yet been reported.

Hayes, general secretary of the Koighta of Labor, ia doing bia beat to have the United States governor nt keep ita hande off in the preaent fight between the railroads and their employeea. He haa written the following letter to con greesinen and senators in support of a resolution to be introduced by Senator Kyle tomorrow at the instance of Mr. liayea. To tho Members of the House of representa tives and Senate, in Gongress Assembled: Gentlemen: —We beg leave to call your attention to the joint resolution introduced by Senator Kyle in the United Statea aenate today, Monday, July 2, 1894, and ask for it at your hands immediate favorable consideration. The United Statea government, if we are correctly informed, contracts with the various railroad corporations to carry the United Statea mailß. In no case do the contracts call for the attach ment of other cars than mail cara on mail trainß. The various companies whose em ployees are now on a strike are seeking to enlist the services of the United States government in coercing their em ployees to perform services against their wiil, under cover of tha eaid contracts for carrying mails. It is well known these employees Btand ready at all timea to do service on mail traina. In view of these facts and the hereto fore declared policy of the government in no way to interfere with private en terprises, auch as railroad corporations, unless the laws of the land are violated, we hereby petition you to carry out this declared policy now by the passage of the Kyle joint resolution. Tbe railroads are either public or pri vate enterprises. If the former it is the duty oi the government to assume con trol thereof and give to the employeea the came fair emolument and just treat ment accorded to all other employeea. If the latter, the government haa no right to interfere in any way between the railroad corporationa and their em ployees, or render the former the aesia tanco of the United State 3 courts and armies to coercing Baid employees. If the mail contracts of the govern ment with their companies are not com plied with, there ia ample remedy in the penaltiea attached and iv tho courta of the land. Ilelieving the above to bo the facta in the case, we respectfully petition you to do justice to the great mnaa oi your con stituents by the immediate passage of the Kyle joint resolution.

MURDER AND ROBBERY. Dastardly Work of M.alced Raadlts at Holflredg;*, Neb. Holdredhe, Nob., July I.—Laat night two masked men took possession of toe streets and held up everybody who came along. A young man naniod Roberta waa caught first and aearched. lln bad but lo cents in monoy. J. A. Fredericks, a merchant, escaped by running.

A REMARKABLE BLIND DRUGGIST.^ The Sixth Souse rosec.werl by n Sightless but Sprightly MJchlsander. William J. Garrison, tho blind druggiMj of Wyandotte, is a man who excites great! admiration. He was born und grew up in Vernon, Mich., and came to Wyandotte about two years ago to become a member of the firm of Dorencc & Garrison. When about two years of age, he lost his; eyesight and cannot, remember that he ever saw. Ho is n highly educated man and, keeps himself thoroughly posted fn polit ical affairs and all the topics of the time. Besides being a pharmacist, ho is a piano tuner nnd realizes n good income from his work in that capacity. It necessitates his going about the city a Eject deal, nnd his ability to pet about, cov ering long distances, and by crooked, wind ing ways without inquiring the direction is a wonder to all who sen liim. One would never suspect that a man who moves about with head erect nnd brisk step, seemingly thoroughly acquainted with every inch o< his path, was treading his way in absolute darkness. In Mr. Garrison that indefinable instinct that we term the sixth sense is de veloped in a marvelous degree. He carries a correct map of the city in hf* memory, and when he goes out to tuno a piano ho takes his cant! and tuning instrtt. monts, and inquiring in what street and block tho house ho wishes to reach is lo cated goes directly to the place withouH further inquiry. His ear is remarkably correct, and he possesses great skill in ma nipulating a piano, "When his work is done, Mr. Garrison retraces his steps without fur> ther inquiry, as if the way was a beaten path beforo him. People often watch him, as he starts to cross the street to see how 1 accurately he is able to judge of the dis tance between himself and passing team* and uf tho speed at which electric cars are approaching. He usually gives himself a block the advantßgo of a car. In the store Garrison is vary quick to serve his patrons, although he never gives out poisons. Ho can toll any brand of cigar in the case as soon ns his hand touches tho box. No man in the city ie quicker or more accurate than he at making change. Ho oiiihns to keep the most exact time in totvi and will dispute the timo to a second with any one. Mr. Garrison does all of his own trading, and a clerk who can deceivo him in the quality of a piece of cloth or of any provenderhi the market must be pretty slick, iiis ability to get along as well as those who have all their senses is a contin ual marvel to all who know him.—Detroit News. ■* ** " .* «. ..._ Tariff of Wives. In tho earliest times of purchase nj Woman was bartered for useful goods or for services rendered to her father. In this latter way Jacob purchased Rachel and her sister Leah. This was a Bcenaj marriage, whero a man, as in Genesis, leaves his father and his mother and clcavos unto hia wife, and they become one flesh or kin—the woman's. Tho prico cf a bride in British Columbia and Vancouver island varies from £20 to £40 worth of artislea, In Oregon an Indian gives for her horses, blankets or buffalo robes; in California, shell money or horses; in Africa, cattle. A poor Dauiara will sell a daugbtel for a cow. A richer Kaffir expects from threo to SO. With tlie Banyai, if noth ing be given, her family claim hor chil dren. In Uganda, whero no marriage recently existed, she may bo obtained for half a dozen needles, or a coat, or a pain of shoe?. An ordinary prico is a box ot percussion caps. In other parts a goat or a conplo of buckskins will buy a girl. Passing to Asia, wo find her price is sometimes 5 to 50 rubles, or at others a cartload of wood or hay. A prinoesa may be purchased for 3,000 rubles. In Tartary a woman can bo obtained for a few pounds of butter, or where a rich man gives SO small oxen a poor man may succeed with a pig. In Fiji her equivalent is a whale's tooth or a musket. These and similar prices elso whero aro eloquent testimony to the lit tle valuo a savtge sets on his wife. Hen charms vanish with her girlhood. She is usually married whilo a ohild, and through her cruel slavery and bitter Ufa she often becomes eld ,aud repulsive at 2o\ r-Westminster Ecvicw. StrWOCO If. Germany.
