THE PUTCHERS' UNION HAS CON- !
CEDED EVERY POINT ASK- |

BUT ONE.

THE PACKERS CONTINUE TO EMPLOY
OUTSIDE HELP IN
CARRYING ON THEIR
BUSINESS.
. - CHICAGO; July IS.?The second
, /week-of the great packing house
strike . loomed up this morning with
& Voohaitions to a peaceful settlement-of
*v- ~ the difficulties between employers and
employes having an added grimness
of determination openly expressed by
both, sides. Failing in the conference
between the packers and President
Donnelly Saturday afternoon to reach
2. l>asis OI sememeuc, tu.tr situ auuu
resolves itself to-day apparently Into
' ' a long, continuous and bitter struggle.
The Butchers'. Union conceded all
the points proposed. to reach an arbitration
plane, with the exception of
one, namely, the re-employment pending
negotiations of all strikers. This
th^jjhckers absolutely refused to entertain
so that all the favorable in-dicationsAtfaat
preceded the preliminaries
faded away.
Donnelly, who left soon after the
close of the conference for St. Louis,
returned to Chicago this morning
and went into consultation with the
leaders of the allied trades at the
yards. With-the .thermometer hovering
around the nineties, the opening"
incident of the day was the bringing
in of 100 non-union men on the Lake
Shore Railway. These'were escorted
to an Armour plant by a lieutenant
and twenty-five policemen. There was
no disorder en route. At 11 o'clock
another shipment came in. Knots of
strikers gathered about the street corners,
despite the withering rays of the
' sun, growling disapprobation, but
withholding from acts of violence.
The packers ?oiy4nued- to .employ help
of all kinds, using the. agencies for
ij ' that, purpose and claim to have a '
v .: large number of men on the way who,
-a-bev cav efinn will be taueht the ins
. .and outs of the business upon arrival.
. Including this morning's shipments
The packers assert they have employed
1,600 men thus far, while a great
many of the laborers in whose behalf
the strike was inaugurated, have returned
to work.
The serious outlook is appreciated
b3" the police and 120 extra patrolmen
were assigned to the district this
morning, making a total of GOO officers
now on duty.
NEWPLAVERS
SIGN WITH THE LOCAL BASE
BALL TEAM?NOTHING SHORT
OF THE BEST IS GOOD
ENOUGH.
The local ball team has been
strengthened by Bero, the fast young
infielder, and possibly Conaway may
be secured for first base. Bryson's
work on the first sack has been more
than satisfactory to the management
"And fans, hut as he is one of the best
outfielders in the business, his many
friends would like to see him in one
of the outer gardens where he could
demonstrate his ability to shine.
In case he should be placed there,
a first baseman would be needed, and
Conaway will be offered the berth as
he is at liberty now, the Grafton team
having gone up in smoke. Bailey,
Grafton's catcher, has signed with
Jlorgantown. The latter team will lie
here Thursday to play the third game
of the series, each team having one
to its credit.
Manager Brown, of Morgantown,
witnessed yesterday's game and states
that his aggregation will make this
team go to the tall ones. Brown has
a fast team and the largest crowd
of the season is expected out to see
them perform.
Tom Quailey, the young pitcher
who won the only game on the disastrous
eastern trip, shut "Weston out
and beat Morgantown on their home
ground, has resigned, and will leave
for his home in Dennison, Ohio, this
evening. "
Quatley was very popular, not only
with the members of the team, but
with many town people, and all regret
to see him go.
Jim Lucas, who wore a Fairmont
uniform several years ago, and who
has been with Fred Drumm's
Zanesvllle team for quite a while, and
incidentally gave Fairmont a severe
drubbing last year, received a broken
arm in a game between Zanesville

TORRID
WEATHER WILL CONTINUE FOR j
A FEW DAYS ACCORDING TO
the forecast sent out.
CHICAGO, July IS.?Continuation
of blistering hot weather was the foreeast
sent out to-day by the weather
bureau. The hot wave although accompanied
by southwest winds, does
not come from that section of the
country; it is most felt in the northern
group of western States, but is
gradually spreading eastward. His
brain affected by the heat, according
to the police theory, a man leaped
into the river from a dock near Clark's
street early to-day. The act was witnessed
by firemen, but they came to
the rescue too late. The man, who is
not yet identified, had been lying on
the dock, evidently suffering greatly
from the heat.
Eight dead and seventeen prostrated
was the record of the torrid
spell Saturday and Sunday.

MR. DAVIS SAYS SENATOR GORMAN
CAN BE NATIONAL
CHAIRMAN IF HE CARES ?
TO BE.
NEW. YORK. .Tilly IS.?Henry G.
Davis, of 'West Virginia, the Democratic
nominee for Vice President,
who arrived in this city last night,
is holding important political conferences
to-day with Wm. F. Sheehan,
David B. Hill. ex-Senator Murphy,
August Belmont, National Committeeman
Head, of Tennessee, and several
other prominent politicians.
It is expected that Senator Gorman,
of Maryland, may run over from his
home in Laurel, JId., to take part in
the conference.
Several reports will be made on the
situation in New Y'ork, Illinois. In
diana and Wisconsin, where the Democratic
party will make its greatest
fight.
There has teen much discussion
about the chairmanship of the National
committee. When llr. Davis was
asked if it would be Senator Gorman,
he replied: "There certainly has
never been a time when Senator Gorman
could not have it, if he wanted
it."
Thomas Taggart, of Indiapanolis,
is the most pronounced candidate for
the chairmanship, and his friends are
using their best influences in the
East to bring about his selection.
Mr. Davis purposes a visit to Esopus
to-morrow to meet Judge Parker,
and it is well within the range of
political probabilities that the heads
of the ticket will indicate their
choice for the chairmanship.
The King Land Case.
Judge Mason, of the Circuit Court,
is now busy listening to the arguments
and motions in the renowned King
land case, a history of which was
given in the West Virginian some
weeks ago.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., July IS.?At 10
o'clock last night. Judge Holder, of
the St. Clair cougty,-.Circuit Court,
at Believue, issued a sweeping injunction
directed against the striking
butchers in the packing houses at
East St. Louis. It restrains them
from in any way interfering with the
operation of thg plants or with nonunion
men hired to take the places of
the employes who walked out. Every
member of a union connected with
the packing house trades is brought
within the scope of the injunction, although
but two persons are specifically
named. They are P. Moran and
John Smith, union leaders and organizers
among the butchers.
The writ was applied for last night
hv the managers of the Armour. Swift
and Nelson Morris companies.
President Donnelly addressed the
strikers at East St. Louis yesterday
and counseled them above all to keep
the peace. Obey the law, he reiterated
again and again.
Sheriff Thompson secured service
on several strikers' leaders and members
of the union against whom the
injunction was directed Monday
morning. This action came as a surprise
to the strikers, who realize that
until other action is taken, the packing
houses have the protection of the
courts in the employment of nonunion
operatives. Just what move
will be taken by the strikers to circumvent
this procedure on the part
of the packers is not known. The
packers are operating with partial
forces, having secured men Saturday
and Sunday whom, it is reported, are
being housed and fed at the plants
on both sides of the river.
Mrs. Ulysses Price Dead.
Mrs. Ulysses M. Price died at hei

MORE
PEOPLE
TALK
ON THE EXCELLENCE OF THE
STATE TICKET?ALL SAY THAT
.WE HAVE A UNITED
FARTY ONCE MORE.
Postmaster. A. Howard Fleming is
enthusiastic over the ticket. He says:
"I don'i know that my opinion as to
the State ticket will be worth much
in the eyes- of the people, but'having
taken an active part in the convention,
and although having made tny fight
tor the Hon. Charles F. 'Fetor in this
county, t consider that from the voice
of the people expressed in that convention.
the nomination ol Wm. M. O.
Dawson was a wise conclusion, as we
have long Known him to he a great
politician and organizer, and since his
battle for the nomination has been
won. we all take our hats off to him
as being one- of the best organizers in
this State or any place else that I
know of. As a citizen of Marlon
county, and a Republican. It is gratifying
to know that Marlon county 1s
large enough to have two candidates.
The popularity ot our friends Charles
\V. Swisher and Prof. T. C. Miller
was very much noted In the convention.
1 think as a whole, the ticket
could not be bettered; we will carry
Marlon county by a large majority
and the State by twenty-five thousand."
Capt. J. \V. Sliroyer, one of our
old wheel horses, says 110 mistake was
made. "If 1 had been a delegate, I
would have voted to do just what was
done. I have Just been out in the
country a few days and I find nine
out of every ten?yes, I might say,
ten out of every ten. in fnvor of Dawson
and tax reform. We are bound
to win."
Joe P. Fleming, ex-city clerk, said:
"The ticket suits me p.il right. I
think it is a good one."
Deputy. Sheriff Z. F. .Davis,; said:
"i think the ticket is.^ihvulnera.ij'JGF;
and can't, be beaten. It is ail right."
Mi L. Hutchinson, one of the leading
business- men and coai operators,
says: "The ticket is all right, so far as
I can see. I think all interests are
well represented."

15 BEING HANDED OUT TO TRANSCRESSORS
AT THE TEMPLE
OF JUSTICE BY JUDGES
AND* JURY.
The trial of Ed Jackson ended Sat; T Vurday
evening. .Prosecuting Attorney
Powell waived the felons' charge and
the counsel agreed upon the Yferdtc^aBjBMB
of guilty of attempt to commit a
felons', which the jurs' was
t fir.'!. It was done, and special
Judge Butcher sentenced Jackson to
(lie eoutuy jail iur stvuu uiuwu? wu ;
imposed a fine of $20 upon him. He y'\
has been In Jail since the . last of. :.;v>
March, and by' the* time he has servot!
out the sentence and the fine," he
will have been there' almost a year.
There is no doubt of his guilt, and he
may have been the cause of several
other fires hcsldes the one in the stable
in Hull alley. It is hoped that by
the time the sentence Is" served out
he will be cured of such tricks.
After the trial of Jackson. Jogepb
Adams. Frank Royster, Sam Draydeh;'and
Charles Raster were brought lntd>'V~^^
the court to receive their sentences. '
The last three arc the negroes who
were arrested for entering the houses
of some Italians at New England a
few weeks ago. When brought out for
trial a few days ago Las tor confessed
to entering the houses, and Royster
and Drayden were found . guilty of '
petit larceny." Judge Mason sentenced
Laster to the penitentiary- for five
years and.the other two to the county
jail for four months. They would
have been given a longer sentence,
but the Judge thought that four
months is long enough to board them,
and they will likely leave the State as
soon as free. They stood outside and
watched while. Laster entered- the

goods hut sentence was withheld until
Saturday evening. He was given
the lowest sentence?five years in the- .
penitentiary. His conduct afterwards
showed that his sentence should have
been at least ten years. He seems to
he a bad man, and told the court that
his sentence was a put-up job because
he told the grand jury that Shafer was
innocent. This was ignorance on his '. t
part, for he was given the shortest
sentence. When asked if he had anything
to say, he said that two men,
whose names he did not ltnow,
brought the goods to him at the 2
Miners' Hospital stable, where-he was

ot these other two men, who may be
caught.
When Shafer was arrested, Adams
asked that they be kept apart?that
Shafer would kill him for telling on ;~il
him. They were later put together,
and it may be. that Shafer told Adams '
to clear him or die. But the presence
of two people at the glass house,
where Shafer was caught, leads some
to believe that there may be somts.-:' iVvSli
thing in Adams' last story. It all
be brought to light soon, or nothing,
may develop, and Shafer may be set
free at the next term. Both men seem j
to have experience with the courts, jjj
and are likely bad men. y: ]
