Id THE LAW'S CRIT
Debs ancl His Associates Put Under Arrest at Last. I TIK'AGO, .July 11,—Eugene V. Debs, president of the American Railway union; George W. Howard, Sylvester Kclliher, M. W. Rogers and J. S. Merwin have nil been indicted by tho grand jury for con spiracy to interfere with the United States mails. Debs was arrested at the Leland hotel at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon and Kclliher at Uhlich's hall half an hour later. Bail was fixed nt SIO,OOO in each case. The penalty is a flue of from SI,OOO to $5,000. Around town the news of the arrests, while it intensified the strained feelings referred to, failed to produce any pro nounced manifestation either of approval or indignation. People that had been as suring one another that tho arrest of Mr. Debs would be the signal for a movement by the masses upon the building in which ho might be temporarily confined proved themselves false prophets. Although the announcement of the arrests was spread broadcast by word of mouth, and through the extras of evening papers, tho interior and surroundings of tho government building presented an appearance little different to that of tho usual rush and bustle that characterizes the hour preced ing the closing of out-of-town malls. Took Arrest Calmly. The arrested men took the situation in a nonchalant mood. No glitteriug of steel bayonets or tramp of military forces marked their progress to the government building, nor wore any handcuffs brought into requisition. They came like free citi zens, joked aud laughed and enjoyed the hospitality of the district attorney's office while waiting for bail, put their signa tures to the bonds as a matter of personal recognizance and then returned to their headquarters to resume tho work that had been temporarily interrupted. Their re appearance was the signal for enthusiastic cheers and greetings from the crowd in waiting and which in the meantime had been venting its fury over the arrests by denouncing the action of tho government and hurling maledictions upon the heads of those of the federal officers responsible for the proceedings. Hull Given. Tho bonds for the men in tho charges above mentioned were made out shortly after their arrest, but the brief delay in the appearance of the bondsmen caused the appetite of Chief Clerk Durnham to get the best of him, and he disappeared for supper. In the meantime Marshal Arnold's men had been busy collecting evidence. A sub poena duces tecum had been issued for J. G. lit lues, who is one of Debs'assistants in the A. R. U. headquarters. Deputy Marshal White was given the paper to serve and the marshal's office effected a junction wi th tho postal authorities to make a clean sweep. Major James Stuart, chief inspector of the Chicago postal divis ion, accompanied the group of deputies. Confiscated All Papers. On entering Room 423 of tho Ashland block, where the office business of the American Railway Union is conducted, the deputy read the subpoena and then tho search began. The officers had a mail sack and they gathered everything iu sight. Records, letters, circulars and telegrams aud miscellaneous matter were thrown in a heap and then the private correspondence of the office was gathered iu. The place looked as bare as a garret when the officers finished their cleaning up, and with a warning to Haines to ap pear before the United States grand jury to-day at 10 a. m. without fail they departed. The mass of confiscated matter was taken to the federal building in a hack and was carefully deposited in the vaults of the district attorney's office to be used in the trial at the October term of court. District Attorney Milchrist, in discuss ing the legality of tho seizure, declares that ull Debs' personal letters will be re turned to bim immediately and without an attempt to pry into the secrets, but that official matter will surely be offered iu evidence against tho officers of tho order. When Mr. Debs heard of tho raid on the correspondence at his office he was wrathy and denounced tho affair as a high handed outrage. Tho Arrests Expected. Although, to some extent, it had been anticipated, the arrest of President Dobs and his associates caused a sensation yes terday. Tho president of the American Railway union and his colleagues wore brought in quietly and without any of the lurid outbursts of popular indiguatiou that sensationalists had predicted. Tho federal grand jury, composed almost entirely of out of towu residents, occupied less time than had been expected in reaching tho decision that the evidence presented for its consid eration was sufficient to justify tho return of true bills aguiust the leaders of tho union. No other result had been expected by those who listened to the charge of Judge Grosscup, and while although de nounced with fury at tho headquarters of the various labor organizations, is gener ally commented upon in commercial and professional cirelos as a masterly exposi tion of tho line between tho legal aud jus tifiable methods of trades organizations, and defence of the laws, or rebellion against the authority of the United States. Man's Right To Work. The jurists took tho ground emphati cally that while the right of labor to or ganize could not be successfully attacked and that while it was the imperishable right of w free man to work or quit work as be saw fit, and that while moreover he was entitled to all the fruits and strategy of work yet that, at the same time, trades organizanizations are subject to the same laws ns other associations; that their leaders are also subject to tho same laws governing nil other men and that no organization, nor tho leaders of such organizations could with impunity violate the laws enacted for the govern ment of interstate commerce or the pro tection of the mails. It was a memorable scene, when, lookint straight ahead, with finger uplifted, and speaking in clear cut tone, as though ho would drive his words like a dagger of steel into the hearts of the jurymen, Judge (iroescup said that the present emergoncy was to vindicate the law aud that only, and that if that law had beon violated there should be prompt and ade quate indictment. When the jury turned towards its con sulting chamber there was not a man within reßch of the judge's voice that had not already made up his mind that a re turn of indictments against the leaders of the union would be as quick and prompt astnose responsible for the putting into operation of the machinery of the federal courts could possibly desire. Labor Strikes Hack. Organized labor was prompt to strike buck at the latest manifestation of federal power and authority. Hardly had the word been flashed across the half a mile of intervening ground between the gov ernment building and labor headquarters that indictments had been returned and warrants for Debs and his associates placed in the hands of the officers of the law when the committee appointed by the trades and labor associations of the city to urge upon the Pullman company the de sirability of submitting the dispute with its employes to arbitration, and which had been endowed with autocratic authority in the eveut of a re fusal being returned, attached its signa tures to the ordor calling out every union man in the city from midnight. Sovereign's Appeal. Almost before the ink was dry on this document General Master Workman Sov ereign, of the K. of L., placed the official seal of the ordor upon a in mifesto ad dressed to members of the organization throughout the country, declaring that a crisis had been reached in the nlfairsof the nation that endangered the peace of the re public, that the llanies of discord were being purposely funned by the railroad corporations at the risk of the life of the government and appealing to the order and through it to the whole people to lay down the implements of toil for a short Season and under the banner of peace and patriotic impulse tocre.ito turough peace able assemblage a healthy public sentiment in favor of the amicable settlement of the issues involved. FOLK TIMES THE VICTOII. The Britannia Wins tho Clyde Corin thian Cup Hucc. GLASGOW, July 11. —Yesterday's contest for the Clyde Corinthian cup, valued at £OO, while ostensibly sailed by amateur skippers, was practically a professional eveut. Mr. W. Jamleson was at the tiller of the Britannia, and Mr. Nat Herreshoft' manipulated the tiller of the Vigilant, but they were advised by tho racing skippers of their craft. The Britannia was again victorious, but the winds were mostly very light and var iable, and it was really almost as incon clusive a battle as that of Monday. The gentle forco of tho wind is indicated by the fact that the Britannia eoverod the 50-mile course iu 7 hours, 45 minutes aud 5 sec onds. There was much light air sailing, some drifting, and a bit of real racing in a modest breeze. Britannia won the cup by 0 minutes and 1 30 seconds, elapsed time, and 0 minutes and 30 seconds, corrected time. It is regarded here as improbable tlmt, in ordinary weather, the Vigilant ever will be able to worst her antagonist ovei tho fifty mile course with eight turns, where success depends so largely on quick handling and jockeying. Tho hope of the Americans Is that they will have a chance soon to meet the Bri tannia in nil outside race to windward and back or the reverse. They think tlmt they have tho bettor boat, but they are too unfamiliar with the erratic Clyde course to do much on it unless they have a rattling breeze and and a lump of a sea.

J., July 11.—Fully 3,000 teachers took part iu the initial ses sion of the 33d annual meeting of the Na tional Educational association at tho audi torium.

Of this he had a doubt. ALL UKARB OUT Chicago's Industry Almost Paralyzed. CmcAoo, July 11.—There is no dis guising thofuct that tho local situation in tiie labor troubles is more gravo than it has been at any time for two weeks, when the American Railway union issued its boycott against the rolling stock of the Pullman Car company, with tho view of enforcing the demands of the strikers at tho town of Pullman. This is not the view of the alarmist or of the biased idea of tho radicals among the striking ele ment. It is tho opinion entertained among all classes of tho community, which are looking forward with fenr and apprehension to what another day may bring forth. There is that same feeling of unrest and foreboding in tho air that those who have witnessed uprisings on tho part of tho masses in England and on tho continent remember full well. There were three times as many people on the streets to-day as were to bo seen on any day for months past. Nino-tenths of them, men and women alike, displayed some emblem. Tho majority wear the white ribbon emblematic of sympathy with strikers and against tho use of which the white ribboners of tho Women's Christian Temperance union have made a fervent, but apparently ineffectual, pro test, The people on the streets keep moving. There is no congregation of crowds except about the military camps on tnelake front and the government building and in the region of tho various headquarters of tiio labor organizations. Hut as they walked they talked and the present and future of the labor situation was the engrossing tonic. So it was at tho clubs, in the res taurants, in the saloons and in all other places of public resort. In commercial circles there were lamen tations loud and deep, for retail business of all kinds is in a state of paralysis and the wholes lie trade is faring but little if any better. Everobody agreed that affairs had been wrought up to the highest ten sion, and that, to use the vernacular, "something or other must speedily drop" to bring relief. FOREBODINGS AT CHICAGO. No Telling What a Day May Bring Forth. CHICAGO, July 11.—The working men are out on strike. Chicago industries are al most completely paralyzed, and the last call for the greatest struggle between la bor and capital lias been made and re sponded to so far as tills city is concerned. Beginning yesterday at 4 o'clock the mem bers of the different unions began to strike. It had been given out that nothing in tho way of a settlement could be effected, and without waiting for the final report of too committee which bore the news of the re fusal of the Pullman company to arbitrate tho union men began to quit work. Almost the first men reported out were the stage employes, und following those were tho carriage and wagon workers, teamsters, moulders, machinists, brewers, bakers and iron workers. All of these trades gave no tice that they would strike and reported at noon to the chief officers as on strike. During tho afternoon other trades followed in rapid succession. It had been agreed that a meeting should be hold at Uhlich's hall for the purpose of receiving a report from the committees. It was decided to then issue tho call for a general strike, but the action of the mayor and others in attempting to secure a com mittee of prominent business meat and citizens to effect some sort of an agree ment whereby tho strike in general might be avoided, delayed the call. Mayor Hopkins, acting upon the sug gestion of citizens, bod appointed a com mittee of three consisting of Judge M. F. Tuley, Willis J. Abbott, editor-in-chief of the Times, and City Comptroller Acker man, to select a citizens' committee of 25 to call upon the Pullman company for a more amicable policy. Tho meeting was prolonged until after 4 o'clock, the hour set by the joint meeting of the trades and tho efforts of tho citizens to avert the striko were fruitless. Chairman Kidd and Secretary McCor mick of tho joint trades meeting delayed the issuing of the call until 0 o'clock, but at that hour met with tho committee of seven selected to try to induce the Pullmnn people to arbitrate, and concluded to issue the call. The call was issued and reads U) tho effect that acting upon the unani mous vote of tho joint conference Sunday night a general cull of all laboring men in the city of Chicago to unite in a sympa thetic strike and to quit work at once in n uniform movement to assist tho American Railway union by remaining out until tho Pullman boycott and strike was settled. Before the call was issued fully 30 uuiona had given notice that they would strike. Situation at Cleveland. CLEVELAND, 0., July 11.—Tho indica tions are that the back bono of tho strike has been broken. One crew has been put to work in every yard in the city, and each of tho roads has succeeded in making up and sending out at least one freight train. There have been no signs of disturbance. All tho firemen ornployed by tho Big Four who have been on strike hero returned to work. It now looks as though tho striko would speedily break down and every yard be fully manned and actively at work clearing up tho accumulation of cars. Marines To Check Strikers. WASHINGTON, July 11.—The United States cruiser Charleston has arrived at Mare Island navy yard from Central America. She has a force of marines on board, and those with her blue jackets will be held its a reserve force in the event of further outbreaks in the vicinity of San Francisco. To Compel Arbitration.

McDon nell, president of the Now Jersey state board of arbitration, has communicated with United States Senator Smith, urging him to introduce in tho senate a bill mak ing it compulsory on the part of corpora tions to arbitrate labor troubles.
