Ohicaco, July G, 1S04.—Shortly after eleven o'clock a mob of 3,000 men and boys hold up a milk train on the Pittsburg aud Fort Wayne tracks at Fortieth street and stoned the engineers and fireman. Lieuten ant O'Neill, with a squad of thirty police men, charged the crowd with drawn re volvers. but the mob only jeered ana hoot e 1, and finally commenced to throw large stones at the officers. The police then fired into the mob, and several persons are re ported fatally injured. Chicago, July f>, 1831.—At ten o'clock this morning a mob of 500 men attacked the Illinois Central road at Kensington. In a tew minutes bos cars were run on the main line, switches were turned aud the line completely blockaded. Officials of the com pany at once called upon the police depart ment and General Miles for assistance. It was reported shortly afterward that the United States marshals at Kensington were firing on the mob, aud that one man had been killed. HOPKINS WANTS TBOOPS. Mayor Hopkins at 10:30 this morning stated that unless he became convinced that the police"could handle the big mobs that he had learned were gathering in various parts of the city, he would telegraph Governor Altgeld within an hoar to cull out the First, Leconcl and Seventh Regiments as well as ail the cavalry troops aud the artillery. ■T have just received word from Chief Brennan that several mobs of from 3,000 to 7,000 persons are gathering at a dozen points," said the Mayor, “and I am eon vim ei that the crisis is reached, and noth ing but tho troops can save tho city from ri^ts and perhaps worse. The militia could , be ready for duty within two hours after they received orders.” MORE FEDERALS ARRIVE. Two companies of regular infantry from Fort Brady, Mich., arrived in Chicago this morning, and at. eight o'clock marched from tho Northwestern Depot to the lake front to join the troops mobilized there under Gen eral Miles' command. The men had a long, hard and hurried trip from the upper Pen insula, and looked dusty, fatigued and not in tiia best of humor. The complete roster of troops now mobil ized on the lake front and uwaiting orders to march to the Stock Yards is as follows:— Troop "K”, Seventh Cavalry and Battery “E”, First Artillery, from Fort Sheridan. Two companies infantry. Nineteenth Regi ment. Fort "Brady, Mich. Two companies of infantry. Fifteenth Reg iment. live companies of infantry of various regiments at Fort Leavenworth. Company C aud G. Thirteenth Infantry, and Company K, Seventh Calvary, are under arms and awaiting orders at Camp Dexter, about one mile from the yards. The troops will not be ordered to the yards until trains have been made up and are ready for despatch. No call for aid had been received from tho Lake Shore and tho Rock Island people ud to eleven o'clock. GENERAL MANAGERS’ REPORT. This morning the General Managers made the following reports:— The engineers of the Illinois Central at Centralia, 111., met yesterday "and decided to stand by the company. All the perishable freight which was blockaded on the Illinois Central at Mounds, 111., has been released. The Illinois Central sent out two freight trains from Chicago yesterday—the first since the tie-up. Giving to interference with trains and the blocking of tracks the Baltimore and Ohio ran no trains this side of South Chicago last night. The Illinois Central freight switchmen at Freeport returned to work at six o’clock last night. '1 ho Rock Island commenced this morning, with a wrecking crew, to clear up its main line from the Van Buren street station to Englewood. A number of Chicago and Erie and Wabash cars were burned in the yards of these companies last night. MISERABLE ALTGELD. The Intrr-Ocean, commenting on Gov. A it.-old's nrntpst anaiiisD the use of Federal troops ill Illinois, says:—“Just at this junc ture neither tho President nor tho Mayor , seeilis to care much for the Governor, ami each has full power to act.” The Tribune says:—“In times like theso some idea may be gathered of the infinite distance that "yawns botween John P, Alt geld and Dick Yates ” AT THE STOCK YARDS. A Bleak Scene of gluln—flnlet While Troop* Are Awaited. Union Stock Yards, III., July 5, 1894.— When daylight dawned this morning there was evidence of violence all along tho Stock Yards Company's tracks. Switches had been torn u p, cars turned over, railroad buildings destroyed and in several places freight cars broken into, and their contents scat tered along the tracks. On the Fortieth street tracks of the Lake Shore Company, half a dozen box cars had been overturned during the aariy hours of the morning, nnd the road completely blockaded. evil night long scattering mobs continued their notous work of destroy ing railroad property. During the night thirty-one alarms of fire were sent into the Fire Department in the stock yards district, but owing to the prompt action of the firemen and police the blazes were ex tinguished before any serious damage re sulted. QUIET IN CAMP. All was quiet in the camp of the United States troops at Dexter Pari: dining tho • night, and the soidiers were aktir at an early hour today ready to respond for duty at a moment's notice. At six o’clock thri morning a Western Indiana wrecking train started in clearing the tracks of the five cars which tho mob / bad overturned at the erossiugof tho Laso (Shore road, at Fortieth stn'ot, yesterday afternoon. The wrecking crow worn pro tected !>v a squad of thirty policemen, who compelled tile strikers to keep off the tracks. At eight o’clock a. crowd of nearly 1,000 determined men and boys commenced to gather at tho Crossing and serious trouble is expected if the wrecking crew attempt to clear the obstructions from the Stock Yards tracks. MANAGERS PARALYZED. The yards, however, remained quiet. The events of yesterday aud the work of iu cendiartes last night have paralyzed the managers and they are without plan or purpose. knowing not which wav to turn. The mobs along the rail way tracks passed unhindered and tho United forces of Federal troops and police seemed powerless ro check their advance. No attempt is being made to run trains in or out of the yards, and the military admits it self checkmated at -the outset and over whelmed by superior numbers Everybody in authority hero is sick at heart aud dis couraged, and no way out of tho difficulty seems apjiareut “We are simply waiting for more troops; that's all we can do,” said a stock yard offi cial. “So far as getting trains in or out is concerned there would be no use of doing it, if we could, until the blockade on the main line is lifted.” ** l "Via VII HIV Western Indiana tracks at Fortieth street, but the thirty police who are guarding them will be utterly inadequate to withstand the onslaughts of the mobs, which are rapidly growing larger all along the liue. WARRANTS FOR DEBS & CO. Chicago, July 0, 1894.—JAnu Hayes, a non-union witchman, employed by the Fort Wayne Road, swore out warrants for the arrest of A. Tracy, E. V. Debs and George W. Howard, liefore Justice Wallace yester day. The complaint charges the defendants with conspiracy to impede and obstruct the business of a railroad company with out due process of law. Hayes swears that Tracy is the man who assaulted him night before last near Thirty-first street and the Fort Wayne tracks. He asserts that Debs and Howard wore in the conspiracy to have him assaulted. He was working for a railroad company, and a conspiracy to as sault him was a conspiracy to obstruct the business of a railroad. PIG HEADED ALTGELD. Tacit Assistance of file Strlkcrs-One State Company Out. Sprixgfield, 111., July (i, 1S94.—Governor Altgeld last night received a - telegram from Jlavor J. F. Hopkins of Chicago, asking that IUC 1 1131 >tuivu xo uw aw into camp at Camp Lincoln, near this city, Saturday, be retained in Chicago and or dered to report at their armory, as they may be needed by him in twenty-hour hours, lu reply the Governor telographed Mayor Hop kins:— We will of course hold First Regiment In Chicago If It is needed, hut nobody has intimated heretofore that Its service might be wanted. The Governor also wired Brigadier-Gen eral H. A. VV heeler not to allow the meu to leave the -city. Last evening at seven o’clock the Governor, at the request of U. S. Marshal Brinton, ordered Company B of the Fifth Infantry at Taylorville to report to the Marshal in this city to assist in moving the Wabash mail trains that have been lying in the de]>ot since Monday. The Mar shal has been powerless to control the crowds. Finding it impossible to move the trains, Marshal Brinton drove over to the Execu tive Mansion and laid the matter before the Governor, and Company B was ordered to the city. The Springfield company is in Danville. Last evening two companies at Danville and two at Decatur were re lieved from duty. disobdebIhst. LOUIS. lllany Trains Tied Up and One Slaned—Another “Omnibus.” St. Louis, July 6, 1894.—The firemen on the ’Frisco road went on strike this morn ing. All traffic is suspended. It is be lieved they quit work in anticipation of the expected injunction of Judge Thayer. The railroad yards here are beginning to show signs of life, and that an attemp t is being made to raise the freight embargo. About 20J non-union meu have been secured, and were set a1 work in the different yards this morning. The strikers have so far offered no violence. It is feared, how ever, that there will be a conflict between the strikers and the non-union men at work in the Burlington yards. KTONED A TRAIN. While the Iron Mountain passenger train was passing under a highway bridge in the southern portion of the city this morning, miscreants fired a volley of stones at tbo coaches. A number of windows were smashed and the passengers were considerably frightened, but none were injured. The act is not attributed to the strikers. Sheriff Hots of Madison County, 111., with twenty-eight deputies, ar rived at the eastern approach to the Mer chants’ Terminal Bridge this morning for the purpose of protecting the switchmen at work. ’ They were ref used breakfast at the V** -V.V.V— ----*----J-1-J for the strikers. Nearly every railroad succeeded in get ting its passenger trains out on time this morning. another injunction asked. W. H. Clopton, United States Attorney for tho Eastern District of Missouri this morning petitioned petitioned Judge Thayer, of the United States Circuit Court to grant au omnious injunction covering IT railways in this city. Tpe prayer for tho injunction was accompanied by a lengthy and elaborate argument called a ‘’bill of equity” in which the United States District Attorney sets forth the great hardships and wide spread damage which the Btrike has already imposed upon tho people of Mis souri and St. Louis, and points out the menace to the general pro3j>erity of the country which continuation of the railroad tie-up and the traffic blockade will cause. Mr. Clop ton asks that the persons named in tho writ preyed for be enj oinod from entering the yards, stations or upon the rights of waj- of the raiiroad companies entering St. Louis for the purpose of dis suading, by threat, intimidation or persua sion, the employes of the companies from performing the duties which their positions demand. The persons named in the petition include nearly every prominent member of the A. R. U. in this city and also include Vice President Howard aud Director Eliiott of that organization. Judge Thayler took the petition under advisement. It may lie granted this afternoon It covers the Santa Fc, Baltimore ami Ohio, Temilnal Railroad Association, Missouri Pacific, Iron Mountain, Cotton Belt. Frisco, Keokuk and North western, Terre Haute aud Indianapolis. Louisville ami Nashville, Missouri, Kansas and Texas, Chicago and Alton, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, Merchants’ Bridge Terminal, Big Four, Wabash and Mobile aud Ohio Railroad. VBEIGflT TIED UP IN CLEVELAND Cleveland, . Ohio, July 8, 1891.—Tho meetiug of local railway men to consider the question of striking lasted until- nearly day break this morning, and ended ip a practi cally unanimous decision to go out. Com mittees were sent to the various yards to in form the men of the action taken aud to notify them to quit work at 0 A.M. At that hour every mail obeyed the order, and there is not a freight wheel turning in the Cleve land yards today. Passenger trains have not yet been interfered with, and the strikers say they will be permitted to run. RAILROADS MUST MOVE Why an Injunction Was Served on the California Manager*. Los Angeles, Cal., July C, 1^94.— In re gard to the injunction served upon the rail road officials yesterday the District Attorney said:—"The purpose of the government i3 to show that everyone oa whom the injunc tion applies shall be served with it. There Ls now nothing to prevent the companies from moving trains, uaa as the government has furnished ample protection, it wants to know why the roads do not move trains. The injunction was the first to be issued in the United States and District Attorneys for other district are sending for copies of it ami it is probable that the same injunction will be used in all parts of the United States. The Conductor Heart's contempt case was taken under advisement by Judge Ross un til half-past ten today. The railroad called all train crews yes terday who resigned last week and asked them to go to work, and take out trains, as they would be well proteetod. The men re company, and" had no interest whether trains ran or not. The company so far has refused to accept tho resignations of tho men. The men believe this to bo a test to get them in contempt of court. The men are standing together with very few de sertions. A. E. U. IN NEW ORLEANS. New Orleans, July 6, 1SU4.—A lodge of the A. It. U. was organized here and after a stormy meeting lasting until one o’clock this morning, decided to inaugurate a strike on the Illinois Central here today. The L. & N. will bo the next road tackled. The Amalgamated Council of Labor Unions here has agreed to assist tho strikers and with such prestige there is likely to be trouble when the affair develops. MINOEPHASES. Denver, Col, JulyO, 1804.—The Denver and Rio Grande morning train from Puebloe went out as usual, and the shops at Burn ham are working. The order from Debs of last night seems not to have oajried much weight. Coal' is being moved, as well as other freight, and all passenger trains are moving. Little Hock, Ark., JulyO, 1804.—Gov ernor Fisliback last night issued a proclama tion calling upon all officers and others in authority to arrest tho leaders of the strike, if in Arkansas, and, if in another State, the proper warrants should be sued out to bring them to tho scene of their crime tor speedy punishment. Memphis, JulyO, 18B4.—The* Little Rock and Memphis employes at half past two o'clock this morning voted to strike. The order weut into effect at six o’clock this morning. Attorney General Olney hak tele graphed the United States District At torney here to prepare an omnibus injunc tion against all strikers today. Indianapolis, Ind., JulyO, 181)4.—A cat tle ti ain on tho Belt Road, south of the city, wus derailad this morning by strikers. A switch %’as thrown and eight cars were wrecked. The train was running slowly at the time, which probably prevented a fpnrful accident, as there were eleven deputy marshals and a gang of trainmen on the cars at the time. One of tne deputies was hurled to the ground and his leg was broken. A switch was also thrown in the Vandalia yards, but it was discovered in time to prevent an accident. As a result of these acts the police and depu ties are again on tho alert, and arrests will be made. Sacramento, Cal., July 0, 1894.—Instruc tions have been received by Southern Pacific officials In this city to start all freight, fruit aud local trains without Pullmans. It Is believed the strikers will uot allow this un less the Pullmans on the overland be aban doned also, or until the trouble with the company be adjusted. Los Angeles, Cal., July 6, 1894.—The Southern Pacific did not start a train for San Francisco last evening. The train was made up with Pullmans. When about to start a mob of o.000 persons stopped it. United States troops were applied for, but refused the com mander, referring the application to head quarters. _ ALL EIGHT HEEE One of the officials of the Pennsylvania Railroad, when Interviewed by a reporter of The Jersey City News in regard to the possibility of the railroad strike reaching the Jersey City end of the road, said:— “ VV e have no fear of trouble here. All our trains are leaving and entering Chicago on time. The seven o'clock train arrived here on time last evening and at a quarter past twelve o’clock this afternoon our regular sciieduleil train left for Chicago. The men employed on the road have no griovences. Tho engineers receive from $125 to $175 per month, the salary varying according to tbelr mileage. The firemen are all well paid and in addition to their salary they are allowed a rebate on coal if they run the trains on a less amount than we deem necessary. In this manner the firemen often earns as much as twenty dollars a month extra. There can he no trouble with the switches. All the switches in the Jmxev Citv vard are eon trolled by one man. They work automati cally with the aid of electricity.” ILLINOIS SOILNOT SACKED Attorney General Olncy Criticizes Governor Altgeld. Washington, July 0, 1894.—Attornoy General Olney being asked this morning by a United Press reporter as to the legal aspect of Governor Altgeld’s position, re plied with much deliberation:— “It is hardly worth while to discuss at length the false premises and the il logical uon-seqiiitors of the Altgeld mani festo. As a campaign platform, it is a sate prediction that the author will be found to be the only person to stand upon. The soil of Illinois is the soil of the United States, and for all United Stabs purposos, the United States is there with its courts, its marshals and its troops, not by license or county, but as of right. The paramount duty of the Presi dent of the United States is to see that tha laws of tho United States are faithfully executed, and in the discharge of that duty ho is not hampered or crippled by the necessity of consulting any chief of folice, mayor or even governor, u the present instance nothing has beon done and nothing ordered which the most captious critic can condemn as any in vasion of State rights. The action of the National Executive has been and exclusively directed to the enforcement of tho United States laws, tho execution of the orders and processes of United States courts, and the prevention of any obstructions of the United States mails. The notion that tho territory of any State is too sacred to permit the exercise thereon, by the United States Gov ernment, of any of its legitimate functions, nover had any legal existence, and, as a rule of conduct, became practically extinct with tho close of the civil war.” A NEW YQeFaNAROHIST Town of tho Conolitutlouai Conven tion Itenolules on the military. Albany, July 0, 1894.—As soon as the Constitutional Convention was called to order this morning. Mr. Town’s (dem..

J Resolved, That we. the representatives of the peo - pie of the State of New York. In constitutional con vention assembled, view with alarm the extraordi nary and arbitrary action of the national govern ment. and condemn It as fraught with peril to the peace and happiness of the Republic, subversive of the rights, privileges and liberties of the citizens; and as an exercise of national powers not author ized or implied by the Constitution of the United states or the laws thereof. Mr. Dean at once moved the previous ques tion, and Mr. Towns was prevented from speaking upon it. The resolution was de feated overwhelmingly. When asked why ho offered it, Mr. Towns said:— **I have offered this resolution because I think this convention, the verv reason of whose existence is to repair and strengthen the rules of freeman’s government, should not let pass without notice the present im perial tendencies of the National Govern ment. Never since the devoted band of yeo men fired on Concord Hills the shot which was heard around the world have the funda mental rights of the American people been in such danger. “Never before has the consent of the gov erned been so little respected by the govern ment. Their servants have become their masters, legislators grown rich in a half generation, sit in the Senate of the land de fying the will of the people, entrenched be hind the pilth aud booty of legalized robber : ies while they enrich themselves, enlarge the powers and wealth of trusts, and devote the time which should be used tor the promotion of the happiness of the people to the protec tion of monopoly. ‘•Pseudo aristocrats, whose metalic hearts are as hard as tho clinking coin which con stitute their pile of wealth, turn deaf ears to the prayers and suffering of the masses. “In every direction the work of centraliza tion goes steadily on and tho head of the ad ministration sits and nods, an imperialist fillod with complaints against the people. Surrounded by paid protectors, he shuns the people who choose him. TARIFF BILL PROGRESS Washington, July 0, 1894.—The reference of the taVilf bill to the Committee on Ways and Moans was made this afternoon in the House in the most informal manner possible. After the opening prayer. Speaker Crisp laid before the House a communication from the Secretary of the Treasury relating to additional aids to navigation in Tampa Bay, Florida. He then announced “House Bills with Senate amendments. ” Reading Clerk Houghtaling seized a printed copy of the tariff bill and read “House bill No. 4801, a bill to reduce taxa tion, to provide revenue for the Government and other purposes.” Nobody apparently paid any particular attention to tho matter, although several republicans dropped the papers they were reading, and Speaker Crisp calmly remarked, “Ordered printed and re ferred to the Committee on Ways and Means.” And that is all there was of tho proceed ing. » All the members of the committee will bo present at today’s meeting, which is cal led for at one o’clock, with tho exception of Mr. Montgomery of Kentucky and Mr. Whiting of Michigan. Both gentlemen have been telegraphed for, and Mr. Mont gomery has replied that he will be here to morrow. The Speaker has notified him that lab desires him to serve on the conference committee. The bill will not remain in committee longer than this afternoon. W hilo Chair man Wilson has formulated no programme covering the business of tbe day, it is under stood that tho amendments made by the Senate will be read, and when this shall have been done, these changes will be in formally discussed. Tf. is nnf. l’oivnrf'.pfl no nrnVwhlft tlinf flin T?o publican members of the committee will insist upon keeping the bill in committee in definitely. At the' conclusion of today’s mooting the bill will be reported back to the House, a motion made to non-concur in the amend ments. and that, conferees bo appointed to meet those already selected by the Senate. The Speaker will today order the b ill to be printed CALLED TO HIS DEATH Edward Meyer Shot By an Unknown Caller, New York, July (5, 1834.—Edward Meyer, a racetrack tout and messenger, was called to the door of his house, No. 1503 Avenue A, early this morning and shot dead. He died in five minutes and the murderer escaped. It is believed by the police that the murder was committed by George Dougherty, whoso address is unknown. He gave Meyer $5 yes terday to place upon a horse, and when t he horse won, Meyer absconded with the win nings. When Meyer was called to the door, he told his brother, with whom he lived, that the caller was a friend of his, and the brother heard Meyer address him as ‘‘George.” THE WINDMILL IN INDIA. The windmill, which is so conspicuous in Dutch and Belgi an scenery, is likely to be seen in India. It is proposed to drain the unhealthy flats around Bombay by means of windmill pumps on the system of the Low Countries.—Exchange. FLOOF MFJMTNIl Cellars Inundated and Eleetrie Cars Stalled by the Storm Damage In Other Piaees. Considerable damage was done by the storm this morning. The heavy peals of thunder and bright flashes of lightning struck terror to the hearts of the employes of the consolidated Traction Company at the power house In several instances motormen were shocked, and Anally as a precautionary measure the danger ous current was temporarily cut off. Traffic was delayed for about a half hour duriug which time passengers in open cars were treated to a delightful drenching. The fall of rain was too heavy for the Mont gomery street sewer at the foot of the Hill. It burst at half-past eleven, and basements were flooded to a depth of two feet in several instances, Brunswick and Monmouth streets and the upper eud of Mercer and York streets were flooded. RAILROADS SUFFER.. Much damage was done to the preliminary work of the New Jersev Junction Railroad i on the Montgomery street meadows. Mill I Creek filled up, flooded cellars, and carried away temporary plank walks, which ran out to isolated houses on the west bank of the creek. The Morris Canal got in its Any work. At the lower end, near the sugar house, it overflowed and drove j occupants of ground floors up stall's, j Piers along the river front were flooded, end I some damage was done to goods ready for i shipment. The tracks of the New Jersey ! Junction Road, at the head of Seventh street, j were submerged. The driveway to the | freight depot was covered with two feet of water, making it impossible for truckman to reach it. The West Shore and Erie tracks are also covered with about four inchos of water. Near Sixteenth street there wore two or three slight washouts which, however, did not affect trafflo. WATER IN HORSE CARS. The tracks of tho Summit avenue line of the North Hudson County Railway were covered with a foot of water, which splashed over the platforms and up through the bot tom of the care, soaking passengers. At Montgomery and Gregory streets the receiving basins became choked up and three feet of water make it necessary to walk up half a block to cross tho street. At the foot of Pavoniu avenue the usual difficulty wa3 encountered, which compelled the street cars to stop a block above tho ferry to allow passengers to alight. At the turn-table the water was three feet deep. On tho Newark avenue Hill, where the re paving is done, a large quantity of sand was washed away and newly set [Jocks under mined. Fire Department V .res became crossed with the police signal system and a number of boxes were burned out. It was believed by many that lightning hud struck downtown, but up to oue o’clock no acci dents had been reportod by the police. STORM DAMAGE IN NEWARK Floodod Streets Stop tUe Electric Cars. Special tn the Jersey City JVews. Newark. July 6, 1894.—Heavy damage was caused in the lower end of tho city today by the storm which broke about ten o’clock and continued unabated for two hours. The rain fell in torrents and the sewers in that section, many of which aro in part under the high water mark, were unable to carry off the water. In con sequence cellars were flooded and many families were compelled to desert even the first floor. On Bowery street the water rose clear to the platforms of tho trolley cars and it was found necessary to lamvuvrai'iltr cncnnmi] trnflHf* On tillA Bowery street lines. The stoppage of traffic caused a rumor that the plank road bridge, which is crossed by the New York line, bad been washed away, but it was found untrue. The bridge is old and rickety, hut it can stand a more severe storm than that of today. Lightning burned out more than half the telephones in use and rendered the service practically worthless. Telegraph and trolley wires suffered too, and traffic in many sec tions was impeded. No casualties occurred. LIGHTNING STRIKES FERRYBOATS New Yoek, July 0, 1894.—A heavy thun der storm with almost incessant lightning began here at ten o’clock this morning. While the ferryboat Westfield was on her way from 'Staton Island lightning struck her forward flagstaff, creating great alarm among the passengers. Light ning also struck the pavilion connected with the Bay Ridgo ferry, tearing off-half of the roof. Two or three persons were hit by fly ing timbers, but no one was seriously hurt.

HOBART’SCOPTEY Passaic's Statesman Flirt ing With ilie Guberna torial Nomination* BUT HE WON’T TALK POLITICS. • t Would Not Have Said What He Hid Had He Known Election Was So Far Off. Spec ial to the Jersey City Neil'S. Paterson, July 0, 1804.—The kittenish nanner in which the Hon. Augustus Ho" 3a rt has been ilirting with the Guberna 33rial nomination has harl a disastrous effect ipon the remainder of the small army of Republican candidates. The sudden roac ;ion from the depths of despair into which ;hey wore thrown by his announcement that le was after the nomination, to the giddy Mights of ho^ie to which thoy rebounded when it was said that his declaration was a joke only to be hurled back again by his 3wn statement that ho was not joking, but was in dead earnest, has brought the other juuumuics luu vcigo ul uci vuua tration. At the same time Mr. Hobart’s coquetry has aroused the public curiosity, and one of the questions of the day is:—“Is Hobart joking or in dead earnest:” It was for the purpose of obtaining, if pos sible, a definite answer to that question that a reporter for The Jersey City News called on the Hon. It. Augustus at his office this morning. The National Committeeman was hard at work at his desk, but he greeted The News man cordially and enquired in his blandest tones what he could do for him. The reporter stated his errand, INTERESTED IN CHICAGO. “What is the news from Chicago this morning!” asked Mr. Hobart, castiug one of his benign looks upon the newspagerman. "I have not had time yet to read my paper.” The reporter mentioned a niece of news, and Mr. Hobart began to talk of the great strike. “Yes, but Mr. Hobart, my reason for calling upon you this morning was for the purpose of ascertaining whether you were iu earnest wheu you said you were a candi date for Governor or wheu you said you w ere joking and w ere not a candidate, or whether you ever said you were or you weren’t a candidate.” Another benignant smile bathed the re porter in its refulgence as Mr. Hobart asked: “Do you know Mr.-?” naming a news paper man well known throughout the State. The reporter replied that he did. and Mr. Hobart became eulogistic. When he paused for a second to take breath the reporter ventured to remark: “A definite statement as to whether you are a candidate or not through the columns of The Jersey City News Mr. Hobart will go a considerable way toward clearing the political atmosphere which just now seems somewhat hazy.” relating to newspapers. . “The Jersey City News!” remarked Mr. Hobart musingly. “How do the papers in Jersey City get along these days. I should think-in a-city of that size good newspapers would flourish. Now take the Newark News, the success of that paper has been wonderful, wonderful,” and away Mr. Hobart went expatiating upon the trials and tribulations of struggling newspapers wnn a aeptn or ieeiing wmeu can only come from actual experience. This was most beautiful and instructive, but as it was not what the reporter was sent for, a sort of getting-goods-under falso-pre tenses-feelinz came over him, and ho made another effort to do his duty. “Would I be authorized, Mr. Hobart, in stating that you emphatically declan' that you are not a gubernatorial candidate ?’ “All, what’s that!” exclaimed Mr. Ho bart as If taken bv surprise, but quickly re covering himself he said:— “I don’t want to say anything about poli tics so far before election. Had I known the election was so far away I would not have said what I did.” “Do you mean you would not have said you were a candidate or you were not a candidate?” asked the reporter. “You aro credited with having mado both stato ments.” "1 am very glad you came to see me,” was Mr. Hobart’s reply, “and I would like to talk with you upon any subject except politics. On that I have nothing to say. Nothing to say.” Furthoi questioning soon showed that Mr. Hobart meant what he said, this time at least, and the great ques tion, “Is Hobart joking or in dead earnest,” still remains unanswered.

A. a*. Luuia^, Arlington, MORE BALLAST FOR VIGILANT. Sailing Programme of the American Yacht—Air. Gould Talk*. Bv Cable to the United Brew. Glasgow, July 6, 189-t.—The races of the Mudbock Regatta at Hunters Quay, today were contested by the small raters. Tho Vigilant will race tomorrow for the Queen’s Cup in tho contests of the Clyde Re gatta. Captain Hart' will steer the Vigilant and Carter the Brittaimia. The Vigilant will sail in the races to be contested on the Clyde July '■>, 10 and 11. Owing to the fact that ho steamers were allowed to follow the racers yesterday, news paper representatives were obliged to des cribe the movements of the yachts from the shore. This state of affairs made tho timing of the boats from point to point extremely difficult, owing to the thick niist which hung over the course all day, and sometimes a matter of mere comjecture. Air.George J.Gould was seen on board tho Vigilant at Gourock this morning by a representative of the United Press to whom Mr. Gould said he was greatly pleased at the performance of the \igilant yesterday. She showed plainly that she was faster in l eaching than the Britannia, reaching being the latter's best point, and also that with equal chances the Vigilant could beat the Britannia. Tho result of yesterday’s race, lie believed, was brought about r>y lues.. The Britannia, which had closely followed the Vigilant on the first round, kept further out from the laud in running home on the final round, thereby keeping the wind. Continuing, Mr. Gould said:—“Prepara tory to the race tomorrow, we have shipped two tons of lead. We are in no hurry about measuring the Vigilant. She wants perfect trim first. Her head sails do not draw as well as we should like and they will be alter ed” Mr. Gould expressed his great regret at Lord Dunraven’s loss of his yacht, which, from the point of view of a sportsmau. also means a loss of interest in the succeeding races. He hoped that the batanita would be repaired as quickly as possible, Mr. Gould said he had received a great number of cablegrams from America congratulating him on having won yesterday's race, some body evidently having cabled the Vigilant a winner at a time when it looked certain that it was her race. Mr. Gould said that both the Vigilant and the Britannia had thoroughly fair play in yesterday’s race. He believed the Britannia to be a better boat than the Valkyrie was. The handling of the Britannia was per fect. The accident to the Valkyrie spoiled the day’s sport. Lord Dunraven, Mi*. Gould said, was a thorough sportsman, and he believes his Lordship will be seen in Ameri can waters with another racer. The Scotch method of starting, Mr. Gould thinks, is very dangerotis. The crew of the Vigilant were hardly ready to start when the signal was given, and no one on board knew of the accident which sunk the Valkyrie and disabled the Satanita, or the \ igilant would have been turned back immediately. Mr. Gould invites free criticism of yester day’s race and its comparison with tnat of tomorrow, the result of which he thinks will be different. Captain Hank Half, in an interview on beard the Vigilant at Gourock this morning, declared that the Vigilant could give the Britannia three minutes in a race over a fifty-mile course, and predicted that the muoi iuiu uuciu •’vmu -- races lu the United Kingdom All hands on loth yachts are busy today making preparations for tomorrow’s race. Experts say it would be worth while to raise the Valkvrle for the lead that is in her keel, but the depth of tho water in which she lies offers too great an impediment to the work. The seaman, Brown, of the crew of the Valkyrie, whose leg was crushed in yester day’s collision, recovers from the shpek very slowly and it is likely that his leg will have to be amputated. Lord Dumaven has received a telegram from the Emperor of Germany expressing his regret at the loss of the Valkyrie. Lord Dunraven has received a telegram from the Prince of Wales expressing regret at the loss of the Valkyrie. A diver examined the hull of the Valkyrie this morning. He says she lies on an even keel on the bottom, but there is a hole in her side “the size of a hottse window.” Xlie Press on tlie Bare* Eu Cable to the United Press. London, July 6, 1S94.—In its comment on yesterday’s race between the Vigilant and Britannia, the Times says: — “It may be said that the holder of the American Cup will find Britannia a very formidable antagonist. It is too early to pronounce a decided opinion, but Vigilant's strong point is unquestionably in sailing to windward in long boards, when the centre board is most effective. She is slow in stays and does not start fast, but when warm tore reaches very fast and goes where her head points. “She did nothing with Britannia going full and by, while the latter ran faster ex cept when Vigilant could get her twa spin nakers to fill, which was done in a really wonderful way. It was a breathlessly ex citing finish. ‘Mr. Jrc’ - ’s fine helmsman ship kept Vigilant sire astern. "Vigilant could not out wind or headreach the Britannia, and after a magnificent rac ing display, the latter won.” SANTO’S COOL REQUEST. By Cable to the United Press.

Mr. Pullman, he declares, is an in dustrial Czar, Who makes his philanthropy pay dividends. He (Mr. Stead) would not be surprised if the prosoui struggle should show how easily an industrial war can de velop into a civil war.

Frank Stevens Appointed to Sell the Property Bought In Under the Martin Act* FIVE HUNDRED PARCELS _ J Elaborate Preparatory Work—Ful Descriptions For Buyers—Ques tion of Fees. Tho Finance Committee os the Board oi Aldermen met in Mayor Wanser’s p rivat4 office yesterday and formally appointed Mr. Frank Stevens, President of the Real Estate Trusts Company, to auction off the five hun dred pieces of property acquired by the city under the “Martin Act.” Mayor IV'anser, who appears to have an eye open for saving the city every dollar possible, stated that certaiu auctioneers had offered to sell the property without the city | having to pay any percentages. President y Stevens replied that if a bona tide proposi* 1 tion of that sort had been made, ! lie too would do the selling with | out a percentage from the city, j It was not ileflnitely decided, but is pro’oa j lily that Mr. Stevens’ only fee will bo $3 | from each ourchaser. There has Been con siderable strife amongst local auctioneers to secure this work, but Mr. Stevens has had tile inside track all along. The committee having the matter in charge consisted of Alderman Dolirmann, Mitchell and Day. MK. DAY'S POSITION. Alderman Day last night asserted that he had not been notified to attend the con ference. He understood that the committee meeting was to have been held today. He is perfectly satisfied with Mr. Stevens’ selec tion, but declares that he is opposed to al lowing him to do the work for nothing. "As individuals wo would not expect Mr. Stevens or any other auctioneer to! sell property for us and allow him to take his chances on the £1 fee on each parcel sold. I would have insisted upon a percentage hav ing been paid, but as my colleagues ignored me apparently, I will say nothing moro about the matter.” SYSTEMATIC PLANS. Mr. Stevens has cone to work in a sys tematic manner. He does not intend selling any person a "jack in the box”. This after noon competent men will engage to go over every piece of property to bo sold and to furnish a slip giving the exact location of each piece. The search will also show what kind of property it is, what the amount of the lion is, the surroundings, whether the street is sewered or bagged, the material of which the houses are constructed, the dimensions of the same, number of rooms, condition and everything else appertaining to each piece will be read before it is exposed for sale. Appraisers will furnish a lair price for the property and Mr. Stevens or a competent representative will get every dollar possible for each piece. This work will require considerable time. -This information is to be correct in every particular and the auctioneer will be respon sible tor all accidental misrepresentations if any occur. ft was deemed advisable to sell about thirty pieces at a time. In this way it i* hoped better prices will be procured. The committee has not as yet decided when t!*» first sale is to be held. It will probably be arranged for a time satisfactory and con venient to Mr. Stevens. There are bar gains to be had at these sales, and specula tors and homo seekers should watch for them.
