Crisis Looked lor Today — Stale
Troops. Federals and Police Kcady.
Chicago, July 7, 1S94.—The report sent
out of rioting at fifteen minutes to six this
morning is not true. The city at half past
eight A. M. was quiet, and the presence of
large numbers of soldiers gave assurance
that it would remain so.
At half-past two this morning Company
M, Third Regiment, I. N. G., from Galena
and Company L of the same regiment,
reached the city and were at once trans
ported to Thirty-fifth street and Wentworth
avenue and campeu on Baseball Park. Two

The massing: of troops at the most affected
points of the Rock Island and Western In
diana tracks indicate that tne embargo on
transoortation within the city limits will be
raised this morning.
United States officers and the police be
lieve that the crisis of the big strike will
come today. They believe that the day will
either see trains runulng on all the roads or
the crowds fired upon by the soldiers.
Late last night an order was sent to the
commanding officers of all police stations by
Superintendent Brennan saying that all
tracks must be guarded by police and sol
diers vitkin the city limits, At seven
o’clock this morning, according to the
orders sent out by the Chief, a
final attempt will be made to move
trains. The order goes on to say that all
crossings and tracks must be kept clear, and
that if bullets are necessary to enforce the
clearing of the right of way to use them.
The strikers insist that they will not allow
trains to run if they can prevent them by
moral suasion. They have the rieht to urge
• men on the trains to join their ranks, and as
sert that if today’s work results in the loss
of life, the railroad companies must bear the
blame. The more conservative say they
will keep away and allow the roads to send
out trains if they can get crews to man
them. They also say they will respect the

Union Stock Yards, 111., July 7, 1894.—
The troops were called into action at an
aarlv hour this morning. Shortly after

the yards west of Halstead street, where a
train of beef is standing on the tracks. A call
was quickly sent to Dexter Park, and Cai>

panies of infantry, proceeded to the qpene of
disturbance. The troops drove the crowd
from the yards and established a dead line
two hundred feet from the cars. The mob
then scattered along the Lake Shore tracks
toward the Fort Wayne crossing.
* Fire inspectors were busy this morning re
pairing broken locks and wires of the fire
signal boxes which had been plugged and
broken by the mob last night. In several
instances the police were compelled to go
half a dozen blocks out of the way in order
to send in an alarm of fire.

Tlie i Building Trades Council Pro
nounces for a fienernl Strike.
Chicago, July 7, 1894.—There was little
friction in the session of the building trades
council last night. It was practically unani
mous in favor of a strike. All the varied in
terests were represented. The session was
prolonged until nearly two o’clock this morn
ing. One faction desired a more emphatic
expression than was contained in the minutes
of the session given herewith. The more
conservative element prevailed, aud these
declarations were agreed upon:—
“The Building and Trades Council of the
City of Chicago, representing 25,000 organ
ized workingmen in the Buildiug Trades
Council, in regular meeting assembled
Friday evening, July G, 1894, passed the

rtlovars Is such as cells for tke earnest con
siderotion of all classes of organized labor:
"Whereas, It is apparent that capita! is
organized in conjunction with tho said rail
road corporations and the Pullman Company,
backed by the State and Federal militia,
to defeat the just demands for arbitration,
therefore be it
"Resolved, that the building trades coun
cil declares in favor of a general cessation
of all industries throughout the country,
provided such demand for arbitration is not
conceded. We, therefore, call on all or
ganized labor throughout tjje country to im

step, and be it further.
“Resolved, That this Building Trades
Council calls upon the American Federation
of Labor and all executive officers of all

Fire* and Bloodshed Followed by
Paralysis of Industry.
Chicago, July 7, 1894.—-For the twenty
four hours ending at midnight there were
sixty-two fire alarm calls from burning rail
road property, nearly all being on tho south
side. This is a remarkable record according
to Chief Sweenie. Several times railroad
shops were fired. The Strain was great on
the F’ire Department, and at th e headquar
ters in the City Hall a double force of opera
tors was at work. Chief Sweenie stayed at
headquarters and directed the movements of
his companies.
The number of alarms from July 1 to ten
o’clock last night was 884, the largest ever
recorded in the history of the department in
that time 11’eief Sweenie said last nitrht it
was a question whether the firemen on the
South side could hold out if such wholesale
incendiarism continued.
Three killed and live more or less seriously
wounded is the bloody record of yesterday’s
riots in Chicago. This is the list:—
Letters, William, shot through the heart
at Western avenue.
Richie, S. F., Pinkerton detective, acting
as deputy marshal, attacked a boy who was
stealing melons from a'car. He was set upon

struggle, clinched and fell to the ground,
Lehmann on top of Letters. Mrs. Lehmann

killing him instantly. The body was taken
to the MoraueV and Mr. .and Mrs. Lehmann

An exhaustive canvass of the industrial
concerns of the city yesterday reveals au
appalling slate of affairs, and warrants the
statement that tonight 75 per cent, or them
will stop their machinery and keep it so un
til the embargo on traffic is raised. The
effect will be to throw into idleness upward
of 100,050 workers.
The Deeriug Harvester Company’s Works
will stop tonight, throwing out 8.000 people.
The Illinois Malleable Iron Company's
furnaces were allowed to die last night ior
lack of fuel aud pig iron, shuttiug out 800
men. The nineteen furnaces of the Illinois
Steel Company’s plant are ■ bonked
for need of coke, and all
the company’s mill at South
Chicago. North Chicago, Joliet and Mil
waukee are closed, throwing into idleness
3,000 men at South Chicago, 1,500 at Joliet,
1,000 at Milwaukee and 250 at North Chicago,
a total of 5,750. The Union Foundry Com

allied concerns, cannot get iron and those
plants are idle, adding 350 more to the army
of unemployed.
The Great Western Refining Company has
fuel for but two days, and will then close.
The Chicago Tire and Spring Company shut
down last Tuesday for lack of fuel, throwing
out 150 men. Cook County Hospital has
been burning hard coal for two days because
of Contractor Kelly’s inability to secure
soft coal. The Chicago Packing Box Com
pany closed, throwing out 300, because no
body wants boxes wheu goods cannot be
shipped. _
Blle Island, 111., July 7, 1894.—'Two
companies of Regulars are still guarding the
yards here, but their presence is almost un
necessary, for the reason that most of the
strikers have left town, either through fear
of arrest or in order to join in the turbulent
scenes being enacted in Chicago. Then, too,
no attempt is being made on the part of the
railroad officials to move a single car,though
a large number of ears of butter, eggs and
other perishable goods are held
here in the blockade. The Deliver passenger
train that arrived here Thursday noon is
still lying in the yards and with it is an
Omaha special with eight Pullman sleepers.
The passengers for the most part have
walked to West Pullman and have reached
the city by means of the street care. Dur
ing the night the strikers cut all the electric
light wires and left the yards in total dark
ness Several arrests were made ou suspicion
and a couple of intoxicated men were locked
up, but they were released yesterday.
Companies Will Mot Weaken—Mani
festo from Debs.
San Francisco, July 7, 1894.—When the
attention of General Manager Towne was
called to the published statement that the
Southern Pacific Railroad Company
had made ‘ overtures to the strik
ers, asking their permission to
ruli its fruit and freight trains
and other passenger trains which
were to contain no Pullmans, he said:—“No
such proposition has been made by the rail
road company and no such proposition will
be made. No offer of any sort. Is contem
plated, for the company has none to make.
We will do all we "can to run trains, both
freight and passenger, and if the trains are
not run it will be beeaiiae the strikers will
not allow them to move.”
Mass meeeiugs last evening held in this
city and Oakland endorsed the railway
strike. The , Metropolitan . Tetrtple was
crowded, and thousands who trere unable to
obtain admission organized an overflow
meeting in the open air. Corporate
monopoly was characterized by the
speakers as a common enemy, and every
point against the Pullman Car Company
was greeted with cheers. The President and
his advisers were condemned and every men
tion of the name of C. P. Huntington was
received with groans and hisses. Speeches
were made by A. W. Thompson, who pre
sided; E. T. Hoyt as a representative of the I
A. II. U.; N. K. Collier, Alfred Fuhnnan,
M. McGlynu, A. T. Rogers and R. T. Allan.
Resolutions were adopted promising
moral support to the American Railway
Union, condemning George M. Pullman and
the Southern Railroad Company, endorsing
the strike, attacking Federal interference in
the difficulty, and demanding that the
military service of this State and the nation
should be remodelled, classifying men fit for
duty in such a way that those who have the
most property siiall be drafted first into the
militia and army and ordered first to the
front in time of insurrection.
West Oakland, Cal., July 7, 1894.—The
following dispatch from E. V. Debs was re
ceived last evening by E. IC Roberts, Presi
dent of Oakland Lodge, A. R. U.:—
“Chicago, July t», 1894.
“We have assurance that within forty
eight hours every labor organization in the
country will come to the rescue. The fight
is on, and our men are acquitting themselves
like heroes. Here and there oue man
weakeus, but our cause is strengthened
by a dozen going out in his place.
Every true man must quit and remain
out until th8 fight is won. There can
be no half-way grounds. Men must be for
us or against us. Our cause is gaining
ground daily, and our success is only a
question ot a few days. Do not falter at nis
question. Stand erect and proclaim your
manhood. Labor must win now or never.
Our victory will be positive and complete.
Whatever happens do not give credence to

Tacoma, Wash., Julv 7, 1894.—Twenty
shots were fired by ambushed men at the
Carbonado passenger train as it passed the

ambush are supposed to have been strikers.
No one was hurt.
Indianapolis, July 7, 1894.—The Indiana
troops will be ordered out today to take a
hand in mov.ng trains at Hammond. Gov
ernor Mathews received a call for troops
late last night from Sh eriff Fredericks of
Lake County, and replied that he would
have men on the way the first thing this
morning. Troops from the northern part
of the State will probably be called.
Governor Matthews said:—Those trains at
Hammond must be moved. I have waited
several days now for United States marshals
to accomplish something, while all tho time
I have been flooded with messages asking

ment marshals have arrested a number of
strikers, brought them down here and then
let them go on their own recognizance. That
kind of work will not lift the blockade at
Hammond, and 1 have decided it is time for
more effective measures.”

The BOSTON started out to close at 6 o’clock on July

EOoTON, for which please accept our thanks.
Some of our neighbors object to the high rates charged
for gas, and want to petition to the Legislature for a re

Fokt Smith, Ark., July 7, 1894.—The
strike has broken out at Van Buren on the
Missouri Pacific road, and two trains carry
ing sleeping cars are lying in the yards at
Van Buren. A fireman was brought up
from Little Rock, but he refused to take
out the train- Trains without Pullmans go
through. No freights, however, and no
trains with sleeping cars attacked get be
yond Van Buren. Deputy Marshal Houck
arrested eleven of the firemen tonight on
writs charging them with conspiracy to stop
the mails. They were released ou bail.
Colorado Springs, Col., July 7, 1894.—
The Colorado City division of the American
Railway Union, representing practically all
the tributaries of the Western division of the
Colorado Midland Railway, has decided not
to strike. The vote for the strike was 27
against 07.
Kankakee, 111,. July 7, 1894.—All the
factories here are shutting down for lack of
coal, and the electric light, street railway
and water plants are economizing to the
Omaha, July 7, 1894.- -The Cudahy Pack
ing Company has laid off 800 men in its hog
killing department. Swift laid off 250.
Other companies are still trying to run full
forces. The working force of the Union
Pacific system may be laid off today. The
Omaha smelter is nearly out of ore and
must soon shut down.
Harrisburg, Pa., July 7, 1894.—The
strike in the West having cut off the
supply of cattle for the Philadelphia
and New York markets, the South
is supplying the demand. Today
n n stock train of thirteen loaded ears
came over the Cumberland \ alley Kail
road. and seventeen cars passed over the
same line yesterday for New York.
Denver, July 7, 1894.—There is slight
change throughout this and adjacent States
in the American Railway Union strike.
Generally conditions are slightly more fav
orable to the railroad companies. A bridge
was found burning on the Midland
near New Castle last night, but it was re
paired so as to permit the passage of trains.
At La Junta the yards yesterday were
cleared of passenger trains for the first time
in nine days. Trains are moving at nearly
all points.
Followihg the example of the engineers of
the Denver and Gulf system, the conductors
of the Santa Fe, it is said, have requested to
lie sworn iu as Deputy United Stares Mar
shals and armed. Their desire will be com
niied with.
The order of United States Marshal Israel
to his deputies to arrest, without warrants,
strikers, especially leaders, for counselling
men not to work on railroads in
the hands of receivers, has created
great excitement among labor organiza
tions. The strikers declare that the depu
ties will not dare to take them without a
warrant unless they kill them.
President Heberling, who is direct
ing the strike here, said:—“I have
advised all the men in no way to offer vio
lence to officers, but w ill fight and resist any
arrests that are made without the process of
the courts.” _
Secretary Carlisle Will Walt I'usil
Times Are Safer.
Washington, July 7, lb94.—Secretary
Carlisle has directed during the pendency of
labor disturbances in the West that no money
be sent from the Treasury at Washington
or the sub-Treasury at Now York, to West
ern points, where trouble now exists, or
to further Western points when the money
has to pass through the disturbed districts.
This means that United States disbursing
officer’s balances will not be increased at
present, and os pension payments are now
due at Chicago. Illinois, it may delay tnese
pension payments.
These precautions are taken as the Gov
ernment contract' with the United States
Express Company provides that the com
pany shall not be liable for money lost in
transit, but that any loss of moneys or secur
ities occasioned by persons in arms or any
mob or riotous assemblage must be borne
by the United States. United States Treas
urer Morgan has sent the following tele
gram :—
“Washington, D. C., July 0, 1894.—To
Assistant Treasurer United States, Chicago
and St. Louis: Make no shipment of public
money to the Treasurer of the United States
until otherwise directed. For your own pro
tection and the Government, use every pre
caution in regard to the movement of public

your city or elsewhere. On receipt wire me

to Congress in a few days.
Philadelphia, July 7, 1394.—The Marine

New York, July 7, 1894.--The effects of
the big strike in the West are being felt in
this city more and more each day, and un
less there is a settlement of some kind very
soon the produce market will become para
lyzed, and the supply of food products will
be nothing like equal to the demand.
The most alarming feature of the situation
In this city is the scarcity of meat. Iu con
sequence of the supply growing less, the
price of meat is advancing slowly each day,
and the downtown business men say there is
no telling now mgu me price win go neiore
the strike is settled. New York dressed beef
advanced one-half a cent today, and the
most conservative merchants say that by
this time next week, the price of meat, should
the strike continue, will be far beyond the
means of the poorer classes. Sixty-five per
cent, of the dressed beef consumed iu this
city comes from Chicago, and as
there has been no shipments here
since Friday last, the cold stor
age houses aud refrigerators are
being rapidly exhausted to supply the de
mands of Boston and other iSew Kngland
cities, who depend upon the metropolis for a
large share of their meat.
A prominent butcher said today that if the
strike lasted through next week the price of
meat would be higher than it was ever
known in this city, and that the supply
would be nothing like equal to the demand
next week. _
Delayed Bags From Chicago Reaeli
New York—Much Tied-Up.
New York, July 7, 1894.—The distribu
ting clerks in the General Post Oiiice, as
well as in most of the sub-stations, had'their
hands full lust night and this (Saturday)
morning with the delayed mail from
Chicago, which came in all in a hegj» ' Ter
the New York Central road last night.
Up to date all the mail from the snene of
the headquarters of tbe big strike has ar
rived except that posted in the Windy City
between 10:80 A. 51. and 4:80 P. 51. July ti.
This mail came by the way of Detroit and
has been blocked "somewhere on the road.
No mail was received from Detroit last night
nor has any been received today.
No mail has been received here from San
Francisco since July 1, and nothing from
Salt Lake City since .J uly 2.
The Cleveland mail which was tied up
yesterday arrived all right this morning.
The mail from Missouri, Arkansas and the
Southwest arrived a trifle late this morning
Pannowlirotn'o rno rl TKa mul'lc

Omaha, which were due to arrive here last
night had not put in an appearance this
morning. The malls from St. Paul, Minne
apolis and throughout the northwest as far
as Portland, Oregon, arrived last night, but
none have been received today.
All during the morning the postmaster
and assistant postmaster were l esieged by
people seeking information regarding let
ters which should have neeu received
yesterday or before but which failed
to arrive.' Applicants for information
were turned over to Superintendent Morgan,
who assured them that all mail would be de
livered just as promptly as possible. He
was unable to say anything regarding what
would happen in the future, as everything
depended on what the strikers might do to
delay the mail trains.
Strike in file Air, But the Jleu Have
No Grievances.
New York, July 7,1804.—General Super
intendent Van Etten of the New York Cen
tral Railroad said this morning that his
latest advices from Buffalo indicated that
all was quiet there.
“Men employed by Debs, or the American
Railway Union, have been in Buffalo for
“I was weak and nervous, but Hood’
Sarsaparilla has made me feel better in
every way.” Mrs. A. P. Dunlap, Arlington,
several days trying to organize the switch
men of all the roads,” said Superintendent
Van Etten.
“I do not know yet what success they met
with, but very few of our employes belong
to the union, and we have a number of men
in Buffalo on whom wo can depend, even if
there was a general strike there.
“Strike seems to be in the air. It is no
longer the Railway Union. When these
big strikes once get started the spirit of the
thing seems to get in th3 air, and then rail
road men everywhere imagine that they
lutve a grievance. So we will not be sur
prises if the strike extends to Buffalo.
“Our men have no grievance, and we are
sure they will not take the initiative in a
strike, but if the switchmen of the other
roads entering Buffalo go out it may delay
our trains.
“We are in very good shape today. Ail
our through trains, including the Chicago
limited, are running. The limited East
bound today is about four hours late, but I
do not kuow yet where the delay occurred
or the cause of it,
“Until a few days ago the American Rail
way Union had a very limited membership
among the railroad employes at Buffalo, but
they have been organized there since the
strike began, and they organize in such a
way it is difficult to find out what success
they meet with.
“An agent of the union goes about the
yards and asks every man if he wants to
join, it he says he does the agent collects *1
initiation fee,hands the man a card and says:
‘You’re a member of the union’.
“Tnat is the way tho American Railway
TJnion has been organized. The iuitiation
fee is only 41, and the dues are twenty-five
cents a year.
“The situation on tho Lake Shore road is
better today than it was yesterday. There
is some delay in handling freight, but pas
senger trains on both the Lake Shore and
Michigan Central roads are going through
all right.” _
All Its Chicago Trains Hast De
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company is
feeling the first effects of the great railroad
strike in the West. Its Chicago business
is seriously interfered with. The Chicago
Limited which should have arrived in the
city at 6:22 last evening, the Day Express
which is due at 9:37, and the Eastern Ex
press duo at 7:32 this morning, nad not ar
rived up to noon.
It was said at the depot this morning that
they would arrive about noon, as they had
all left Pittsburg and were on their way
East. As far as could he learned the trouble
iu getting out of Chicago, where the strikers
interfered with the movement of the trains.
The Chicago Limited West, was de
patcbcd from Jersey City promptly at
10:14 this morning, the schedule time for its
departure, and it is the intention of the
compauy’s officers to despatch the other
Chicago trains on time.
Trainmaster Staples of the New York,
Lake Erie and Western Railroad said tills
morning that as yet his road had experienced
no trouble whatever and that, ail trains are
leaving and arriving on schedule time. At
ten o’clock this morning he heard that all
was quiet at Buffalo and that uo serious
trouble was anticipated by the Erie officials.
Iu case the strike should extend to Jersey
City, the officers will have in readiness,
enough men to operate at least half of their
traius. As soon as the men quit work, word
will be sent to police headquarters, and the
men which the road have iu waiting will be
put'unmediatel v in tUe.strikergi .places, ami
an nttefiipt ffiacTe to operate the road.
Mr. Staples said that forewarned was fore
armed and his company was preparing to
meet all emergencies.
The strike has already affected the prizes
of meat in this city, and by next week it is
expected that butter, California fruit and
other groceries coming from the West will
be higher in price. Mr. W. H. 'turner, tho
well-known grocer when interviewed by a
reporter of The Jersey City News this
afternoon said:—
“1 he strike has not yet affected the price
of groceries, but there is no doubt that West
ern butter and California fruit will advance
m price next week, me longer me strike
continues the more costly will these articles
All the butchers that were interviewed
said that the price of meat would also ad
vance next week. James Forbes of Rail
road and Newark avenues said:—“The
average increase in the price of meat during
the past week was three cents a pound. This
increase was made by the wholesale people
and not the retailers. It is certain that there
will bo another advance next week if the
strike is not settled. There seems to be no
trouble about the supply, nor is it likely that
there will be any. The wholesale dealers at
the abattoir have their icehouses well
stocked with meat and the retailers will
be able to have all their orders filled.

Raee on Aeeount of Time
By Cable to the United Press.
Glasgow, July 7, 1804.—The Vigilant and
Britannia started this morning In the Clydl
Regatta for the Queen’s Cup. The weathet
was superb. The wind was southerly and
somewhat softer than on Thursday. Thera
was a mild sea and a slight swell. Tha
conditions of the race, the course, tin
1 rules for rounding the various marks,
etc., were the same as on Thursday,
Thousands of spectators lined tho shores
and hundreds of excursion boats filled with
sightseers from all parts of the United
Kingdom were early on the scene.
Today’s race, the Queen’s Cnp contest, it
regarded as one of the greatest yachting
events, and every possible preparation was
, made for it by both contestants. Captain
Carter of the Britannia had the assistance ot
| O’Neil, who sailed the Irex, Iverna and
j other crack boats. O’Neil loaned the
• Britannia sixteen nicked inen from the crew
: of the Iverua, making tbe Britannia's total
company forty-six men. The Vigilant car
ried forty-nine.
The Vigilant's water line was a shade
lower than on Thursday owing to the two
tons of extra lead she shipped yesterdaV
Her rating has been fixed at 175 tons, and
she concedes three minutes to the Britannia.
When the boats came up for tbe start
both had their jackyarders up and ail their
other plain sails set. The starting gua was
filed at 10:30. The Britannia had the bet
ter position and had the weather berth in
crossing the line. The Brittannia crossed
the line at 10:30:17 and the Vigilant at
10:21:20. Both yachts bore off to the star
board and lay well in shore prior to putting
about. The Brittannia headed better than
the Vigilant and uily maintained her lead.
The position of the boats favored tha
Britannia, being a dead beat to windward.
The Britannia continued to lead, and, at
10:57 broke her tack, the Vigilant followed
her example, and exactly a minute later both
luffed. The Britannia determined to keep
the weather berth, put about. Both boats
hard a board into Inverskip Bay, and
emerging therefrom the Vigilant gained
Passing Skelmorlie mark the time of tha
Britannia was 11:40:55: Vigilant. 11:41:50.
The Britannia reached Ascog at 12:01:35;
Vigilant. 124)2:05. At Kilcreggan the
Britannia’s time was 1:16:10; Vigilant’s,
The first round was made by the Britan
nia at 1:35:39; Vigilant, 1:36:46.
Getting into mid-channel the Vigilant ap
peared to have gained somewhat, but tha
Britannia clung to the weather board. The
race was now close and exciting. Both boats
were close-hauled. Ascog was rounded by
the Britannia at 12:01:35, and by the Vigi
lant at 12:09:05.
In mid-channel Captain Harff got tha
Vigilant's bowsprit in. but did not get the
weather berth. Both boats were headed up
channel. The Vigilant had her spinnaker
canvas run out. Getting further into tba
wind both yachts set their balloons, but tha
Vigilant did not set her enormous reaching
jib. At half-past ten both boats were scud
dim: before the wind. Tha- boats..sailed a
close race up the channel, the V lgilant did
not set her racing jib. hut carried her large
hatloon jib. The Britannia carried sails
identical with those of the Vigilant and
continued to hold fully half a minute
On the second round the Britannia
reached Ascog at 3:02:15 and the Vigilant at
At the Ascog turn both boats fetched at a
wonderful rate of speed, their starboard
rails being wholly submerged. The utmost
was done on board the Vigilant to reduce
the Britannia's lead, but the latter pointed
much better on the wind, which was stiffen
ing from the south. A couple of long boards
took the boats to SkolniOrlie mark, which
they rounded, the Britannia at 2:41:07 and
the Vigilant at 2:42:27.
The Vigilant was the first, to cross the line,
at 4:17:55. The Britannia finished at 4:18:55.
