He Secures an Amendment of the Sugar Schedule. Tha Pullman Boycott Venoed In tho Beiiato — Tha Prealdeat Wakes Up (fo tha Sarloaaaess or tha Strike. By the Assorlstel Press. Washington, July 2.—The senate be gan foimal consideration of tbe tariff bill, as amended in committee of the whole, today, and when a recess was had tonight much progress bad been made. The sugar eebedule, which over shadowed in importance tbe other schedules, being considered tbe pivot upon which tbe fate of the measure de pended, went through the trying ordeal and escaped with only one amendment. That amendment made the repeal of the sugar bounty and the sugar schedule go into effect immediately on ths passage of the bill instead of January Ist. The adoption of this amendment Bignalizsd the firßt victory won by Ssnator Hill. In addition to the Republican votes in favor ot it, four Democrats—Measrs. Coke, George, lrby and Pngh—and Mr. PelTer (Populist) joined Mr. Hill. The following amendments to the tariff schedules weie agreed to : Chang ing the rate on bottles holding more than a pint to ■' ,c a pound; on vials holding not more than a pint, l}ge; tbe duty ou polished plate glass, not exceed ing 24x(i6 inches, from 20 to 22>£o per square foot. Hanabrough presented an amendment to the tariff bill providing for the free coinage of American silver at 10 lo 1, and that a duty be platted on imported silver equal to tbe difference between the London and the face value in this country. The amendment was defeated. Hilt made a proposition to make the repeal ol the sugar bounty take imme diate effect, instead of January 1, 1805, which was adopted—3s to 32. The udoption of Hill's amendment v;as o defeat for the finance committee. The Democrats standing for tha amend ment wore: Coke, George, lrby, Hill and Pugtt. Of the Populists, Allsn and Kyle voted against Hill's motion. An amendment offered by Kyle to make tho sugar Bcbedule go into effect on the passage of tlie act was agreed to without division, also an amendment offered by Jones, whicb be eaid had tbe approval of tbe secretary of the treas ury, to relieve sugar imports from the additional one-tenth of a cent from im ports from bounty-giving countries, Upon the production of proof that such bounties had not been received. Jones of Arkansas gave uotice of an amendment which would be presented tomorrow in the shape of a proviso to he added to section iS2, repealing the bounty proviso of the McKinlev law and to continue in force tbe bounty until January 1. 181)), to the extent of 9-10 of a cent on sugar testing 00 de grees by tbe polariscope and X 10 on sugars testing not less than 80 degrees. PefTer moved to strike out the sugar schodule and place ail sugars on tbe free tint. Lost—33 to 3D. Tbe final vote was taken on the adop tion of the sugar schedule and it was agreed to—3B to 34. Allen and Quay voted for tbe final adoption of the schedule. Hill, lrby, Kyle and PefTer against it. O.berwise it was a strict party vote. Stewart ol Nevada did not vote. Thia disposed of the BUgar echedule. On motion of White an amendment to tbe still wine paragraph was adopted, providing tbat the ptr cent, of alcohol on all wine and fruit juices should be determined according to the regulations prescribed by the secretary of tbe treas- ury. By a vote o! 31 to 21 the committee amendment striking cotton bagging from the dutiable list and transferring it to the free list waa agreed to. Mills moved to transfer burlaps, as well as bags for grain made from bur laps, from the dutiable list, thus putting it in the same category with cotton bag ging. This gave Chandler a cbunce to deliver a satirical remark about Mills' great rally for iree trade towards the und oi tbe bill, after getting dutiable coal, dutiable everything else. Uefore a vote was taten on MIIIb' mo tion Harris, at 7:35 p. m., moved tbat the session take a recess until 10 o'clock tomorrow. Tiie motion was agreed to. GROVER WAKES UP. A Conference at tkn Whlto iTonse on tha Strtka Situation. Washington, July 2. —The president, who was at firet disposed to regard tbe etrika as existing to a large extent in the minds of what he calls sectional process, after listening to Olney'd offi cial story, declared tho government must protect ite own property, see tbat its business ia transacted, and be ready to (rive prompt assistance wherever it could legally do co. Upon receipt of tho news that the United States mails bad been etopped at Bos Angeles on the Southern Pacilic road, Attorney-General Oiuey called on the president and at Ihe war depart ment and steps were taken to relieve the situation there iv lino with the policy definitely determined on of having tbe mails go forward nt all hazards. Government orders have heen issued to we that mail trains at Los Angelea ohall be allowed to move, word having been received ibat they have been held by strikers. An extended conference was held at the Whits Ilonne, la6ting from !) o'clock to midnight. There were beanies tho president, the secretary of war, Attor ney-General Olney, Maj ir-General Scho- Held, Secretary Gieiham and General Miles, who hai been on leave, and wilt return to bis headquarters at Chicago tomorrow. When the conference was adjourned the officials were very reticent in regard to the result. It was learned, however, that the situation had been reviewed iv detail, and tho general policy of the ad ministration, as outlined in the early dltpatches, was leiterated. The views were to the effect that while the strike was likely to fall of its own weight and from lack of thorough organization, yet it was necessary for all the authorities to beon tho alert. It was held that the law was amply sufficient to authorize federal intervention whenever conspiracy was shown, as well o» whan mails were in terfered with or tbe interstate com merce act infringed upon. Specified directions were given General Miles. He will leave for Chicago tomorrow and resume control of his forces concentrated near that point. A SHARP REJOINDER. Seaator Davis Will Not Support the Kyle Keaolatton. Washington, July 2.—Senator Davis today replied as follows to a telegram from D. D. Mcluait, president of tbe A. R. U. at Dulnth: "I will not support Senator Kyle's resolution. It is against your own real welfare. It fa also a blow at the secu rity of peace and tbe rights of millions ol people who never harmed yon or your association. My duty under the consti tution aud the law forbids me to sustain a resolution to legah/.o lawlessness. Tbe same duiy rests upon you yourself and your associates. The power to reg ulate the commerce of tbe several states is vested by the constitution in congress. Your associates bave usurped power by force at Hammond, Ind., and other pie ces, and have destroyed commerce be tween states in these particular in stances. You are rapidly approaching an overt act of levying war against the United States, and you will find tbe da tinition of that act in the constitution. I trust wiser thoughts will regain con trol. You might as well ask me to vote to dissolve this government." ECHOES IN THE SENATE. Relolatlona lutrncinc.d Boarloa; on tha Pnllmau Bun,.-. Washington, Joly 2. —The Pnilman strike had its echo in tho senate today. Call offdred a resolution appointing a committee of five of the house and Ben ate to inquire into the canee of tbe ex isting Pullman strike and the justice of the demauds of the men, and to report hy a bill or otherwise.

No Signs ot Weakening on Either Side. The Companies Will Parley With No Striker*. An Injnnoilon Issued Agitn.t the Strik ers on Tsventv-thrae Lines—Riot lug at Bias Island -Latest Bolletlaa. Dy the Associated Pre is. Chicago, July 2.—The genera! mana gers of tbe Chicago roads this evening issued tbe following bulletin: The worst reports come from the Rock Island, which was not able to move any trains on account of a crowd of 2000 people at Blue Island, who controlled the situation, tbe United States deputy marshals and tba Cook county sheriffs being powerless to handle the mob. On the Michigan Central tbe indica tions are for considerable trouble, on ac count of tho employment of new men to take tbe place of striking switchmen. The Illinois Central is still in bad shape regarding suburban business, but is moving through trains. The Milwaukee and St. Paul is also badly embarassed by the striking em ployees. Seventeen roads in Chicago are more or lees embarrassed by Hie Btrike, and many passenger trains are being moved, as en tbe Pan Handle, under heavy guards of deputy marshals for mail trains and deputy sheriffs for other trains, in order to get them through the • strikers and sympathizers who congre gate along the tracks. The railroads have not altered their position, the bulletin continues, and will not parley with tbe men now on a strike. The places of mm who strike will be tillod as last as possible, and force will he met with force, to the extent of ask ing the state for troops to keep the roads wherever this action becomes necessary. If the state cannot afford ample protec tion the railroads will r.Bk the United States government to send troops to the scene of the disturbances. Dispatches to tbe General Managers' nenocietion up to 8 p. in. are as follows: Chicago and Uiorthwestern—The rail road has abandoned all its suburban business for the night. Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul—No freight has been moved into or out of Chicago today. Ali passenger traine on time. Baltimore and Ohio—All passenger trains, with full equipments, nearly ou time. The Chicago and Northwestern, Elgin, Joliot and Kastern, and the Chicago, Milwaukee and Sc. Paul have issued notices to connecting lines and shippers tbat they will not receive perishable freight or livo stock. Wisconsin Central —All passenger and freight trains are running. Chicago and Northern Pacific—Sub urban trains on tune. Freight moving without interruption. Chicago and Calumet Terminal— Switch and transfer employees all out. Chicago, Burlington nnd (luincy—The situation lias changed for tbe worse. A large body of striking switchmen and thoir sympathizers are congregated at Western avenue and to avoid uu open conllict with the mob the yards have been closed. Passonger traffic is moving. Mayor Hopkins and four mamoers of the city council will confer with Ktigene Debs and the General Managers' asso ciation with a view to adjusting the great railroad strike. Thin derision was agreed upon by the council, a reeolution to that effect having been unanimously adopted at tonight's meeting. RESULTS OF THE STRIKE. Bualneaa at tha Chicago Stock Tarda Huapefided. Cuicaoo, July 2.—Business wiil be necessarily suspended at tbe stock yards by tomorrow whether thorn ie a formal strike of ihe packing bousoemployees or not. The peoe are almost entirely empty. The cars loaded with dieeeed beef are etanclin); on the tracks and the beef is in danger ol spoiling, »ud the ice-making machinery must 6onn Btop running owing to n lack ol coal. There are 4!) l) cars of live stock on the BnrliDgton road on the way to Chicago, but there Is little prob ability of their reaching their destina tion under the present conditions. Kvery switchman, fireman, engineer and yard foreman at tlie yards has quit work, and each ia watching to see that no train moves. Tbe ice companies in the city are bringing lee by boat, and the price has already advanced greatly. Tho grain trade on the lakes is com- Tiie lei y paralyzed, as the railroads aro unable lo get any corn oi oato to the elevators. President Debs received a messaee from Colomboe today declaring that the National Association of Street Em ployees stands ready to assist tbo strikers. Uniied States Marshal Arnnld was pulled oil a car platform at lilue Island today after the fight, and kicked and rolled over in the dirt by tbe strikers. The representatives of the Santa Fe road at the general managers' meeting today said that informaticn had been received by tho road to tho eSect that the telegraph operators had gone out at j'mporia, Kan. The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul today discharged two-thirds of the force in its general passenger department. There ib no work for the men because of the strike. Other roads are alio making large reductions. Lodge No. 283 of ths Brotherhood o." Locomotive Firrmen, at Brighton Park, gave up Ihoir charier in the organizt tion today and joined the American Rail way union. the lodge included tbe firemen nn the Chicago and Alton. The Grand Trunk ollicers announced today tbat tbey would be compeHed to abandon the funeral train service to Mount Oiive. This decision wae con veyed to the Btrikers and a meeting was calied to consider the subjsct. Resolu tions were passed by the employeea by which they agreed to operate funeral trains and prevent interference with them. The committee was appoints! to wait on tbe officials ami tell them of the decision. The committee reported thai tbe company refused to operate funeral traine until it was allowed to run Pull man eleepers on its other trains. INJUNCTION ORDERS. Striker* Kestralnert From Interfering With S3 Kuaili. CiticA-ao, Jaly 2.—Judges Croescup and Woods In the United Stetos court issued an injunction today restraining the strikers, based both upon the mu nicipal laws and the interstate com merce act. It is a very sweeping order and aims to protect the roads es com mon carriers tn transport freight as well as carry the United Sates maile. The bill was originally drawn to en join tbe strikers from interfering with the mails, but was modified under or ders from Washington to enjoin from interfering with any trains, under the interstate commerce act. It was be lieved at the government building that the injunction wbicn was issued would stop tbe strike, for the power of tbe government can be called upon to en force it. Judge Woods eaid marshals will be expected to enforce it, nnd, if unable to do co, troops can be called ont. It is not necessary, said he, to issue an injunction to prevent in terference with the mails, for snch interference is in itself a crime for which the guilty party can be arrested and in dicted. It is more necessary to issue a restraining order to prevent interference with interstate commeece. The only reason for issuing tbe order at all is that it is a means to meet the present emer gencies, for the process of arrest and in dictment is slow. Tbo judge said tbe order applied to Illinois, tho seat of trouble, and can be entered in tho courts of Indiana and Wisconsin. Tbe men arrested will oe brought before the court for contempt and can be punished with imprison ment. Tbe injunction orders of tho federal court names 23 roads, all in the membership of the Railway As sociation and the Union Stock Yards Transit company that must not be in terfered with. Ail tbe members of the American Railway union and "all other persona whatsoever" aro ordered to re frain from interfering with traine, freight or passenger. The men are or dered also not to enter the yards or promises of the companies wiiit inte.it to do unlawful acts or to compel by threats, violence, or by any other means the emDloyees of the road to quit work. The order also enjoins the defendants from inducing by "poransion, threat?, violence or by any other means, ihe employees of the companies to leave tne service of the company or to induce thorn to refuse to perform their duties." United States Marshal Arnold pro ceeded to Blue Island early this evening nfld served nolice on the strike leaders there of the injmotion granted by tiie federal court. The news quickly spread among tbe men, and matters quieted down as soon as it became generally known. Alteran hour orso, however, the riotous spirit reasserted itself.and shortly after 10 o'clock a crowd of tbo strikers threw a frsight car across the Hock Island tracks to lock ths passage of trains. They laughed at tbe in junction issued by tbe United States court and tore down ihe injunction placards. So far as known no one has been seriously hurt, although there bave been many email slugging matches. The Rook island has decided not to attempt to put. any more trains through Blue Island tonight. United Stales Marshal Arnold, it is said, wired tbe at torney general saying his men cannot control tbe mob and asking that the Fifteenth infantry he ordered out. TERMS OF SETTLEMENT. President Debs Kormulataa the Dtninndi of the M ' li. CniCAGO, July 2.—President Deba eaid tbig afternoon a settlement will be made ou there terma only : 1. There muat be an armistice be tween Pullman and hia employeea on a basis satisfactory to the men (they are willing to accept a reasonable comprom ise) and all men muat he taken back to work. 2. There mtißt be an adjustment be tween tho railways and Btrikers; nil must he restored to their old positions and no wagea ehall be cut, nor thai! thfy diecrim'nate. 3. The General Managers' nesocia tiou has made common cf.use with the Pullman company, and we cannot set tle with either side. There must be an agreement with both or none. This statement was made alter an in terview with Peter Studebaker. At thoir meeting today tbe board of directors ol tbe A. R. U. requested all men, womtn and children in Chicago in Bympathy with the elrike, or engaged iv it, to wear a white ribbon. President Dobs eaid: "We will give up this strike if this appeal to the public does not re sult in our favor." Debs eaid today: "Thia forenoon I issued an order tying up the Rio Grande and tho Denver and Rio Grande system. This was in response to urgent entreaties from Colorado. We feel encouraged at the outlook today, and ehall fight with renewed hope aud confidence in our own ultimate victory." AT BLUE ISLAND.

Chicago, July 2.—Tne Hock Island railway otliciala ami a squad ol deputy marshals nnd shoritrs at the yards in Blue Island today began trying to lift the blockade in effect sineo Saturday. Tho first move was toward clearing the tracks filled with passenger trains. Strikers formed across the tracks and placed themselves in a position that would result in inj.iry to thamselven should the fains ho moved.

Ban Francisco, Jnly 2.—Six compsn ei of the First regiment, United BtatcJ infantry, left tonight at 10 o'clock for Lob Angeles on a special train. The sol diers are in command of Colonel Shatter and number about 250 men. The detachment of soldiers is made) up,as follows: Comnpny B, 50 men, in command oi Lieutenant Strother and Lieutenant Kil bourn, company C, 45 men, Lieutenant Roudiez; company I), 4S men, Lieuten ant I'bister: company F, 48 men, Lisa tenant Star. A guard of 18 men under Lieutenant Martin was stationed at the front and rear of the train with orders to allow no one to board it. At Benicia, company Q, 50 men, under Lieutenant Coleman, will join the regiment. Tbe soldiers were taken from Angel Island to Oak land mole on the government steamer McDowell and tbo tug Vigilant. Ths soldiers were in marching order,wearing slouch hats and leggings, also cartridgs belts filled with ammunition. Tho train was made up of three bag gage care, three mail cars, oix pasaengor coaches and one Pullman. Supplies or 303 men to last 30 days were taken. The report that United States troops are to start for Sacramento tonight by beat cannot be verified. Tne fact that all of tha First infantry iias left ostensi bly for Los Augeles is agiiusi the re port that Sacramento will bo supplied wfth troops. No more infantry soldiers are left iv San Francisco} Those at Fort Meson, tbe Presidio u'jd Aicatraz ars artillerymen and cavalry. Although the destination of tbe soldiers that left to* night is given as Loa Aug9ies, there is a suspicion that some of them may go to Sacramento, where they seem to bs needed most. THE A. R. U. ON TOP. Thus Far the Btnk«r* Have tha Heat of tha sllruggl a. San Francisco,* July 2. —Tonight, at the cloae of the fourth day of the sting | gle between tbe Southern Pacific com : pany and the American Railway union, i tbe Btrikers appear to have the upper tiand. Iheir blockade of the entire ! system is practically complete. Tne western divisions of the Sauta Fe road are in much the same condition. In , fact, railway traffic is almost ut a stand ! still at all points on the Pacific coast ! south of Portland. North of Portland there is also much troubio, the Northern Pacific road being practically tied up, and the Union Pacific is involved. All overland trains have been effectually blocked and the only trains running anywhere aro locals. TUB TWO POINTS OF INTEREST. Tho two points of particular interest in California tonight are Sacramento and Loa Angeles. In Oakland every* thing ia quiet. The Southern Pacitio company tnie morning posted notices ut tbe Oakland tnolo announcing that until further notice no attempt would be made to dispatch overland traius. Suburbau trains and a few traina to near-by country towns were dispatched from | Oakland during tho day, however, and I met with no interference. The Oakland yards are still patrolled by deputy sheriffs. From this city traius were run I south irregularly over tiie coast division. j No crowds have been permitted to enter the company's yarda at Fourth and \ Townsend streets, lUd policemen and 35 ; Buecial policemen having been stationed there to keep tbe strikers and idlers from euteri.ig. Though everything is quiet in the im mediate vicinity of San Francisco ex citing developments are anticipated at j Los Angelea and Sacramento, the two points at which tbe Southern i'aoitic I company is directing its forces against I tbe strikers. FKIIERAI, INTEItrKr.KNCK. At Los Angeles the Southern Paciflo and Santa Fe companies appear to have I the co-operation of the United States authorities. On Saturday last the United States district attornov at tbat point wired Attorney-General Olney that United States Marßbal Covarrubiaa was critically iii and unable to muster an efficient force of marshals. Attorney | General Olney replied to District A'tor j noy Denis that brigadier-General Rufter j would furnish troops lo execute tbo pro- I cesses of the United States court and j prevent the destruction of the t'nited States mails. Attorney-General Olney instructed tbat General Roger be fur nished with proper warrants for other o roars. TROOP." ORIIKRStO TO LOS ANGSI.BS. Geneial Ruger was at once notiiied by telegraph. Tonight it is telegraphed from Beuicia that Company Gof the First infantry, Uoited'S:atee army, haa received ordern to proseed to Port Costa, thero to join tbe rejt of the regiment and i rocued south.
