Many New Meu at Work at ' Anuour'a W bat tbe King Packer Says or the Situ ation A Piukerton Man Assaulted and Nearly Killed Reported Rioting nt Minneapolis. Chicago, Oct 19. The fstriking packing - house employes at a mase meeting hold near trw stock yank Mon day afternoon resolved to go back to work Tuesday on the ten-hour plaa The strike ia therefore at an end. A meeting of the Packer's association, i: which all the Arms at the stock yards whose men are now on strike were represented, was held In the directors room of the xwrd of trade at 3 o'clock Momlay afternoon. The enwrftm was short, lasting only till 3:45 o'clock. It was announce! at its close that i ha members had adopted resolu tians binding them together more firmly than ever for the ten-hour day. Notices were ordeml printed and nailed up in all the houses M onday to the effect that uniubs the men returned to work at once their places would not be re served for them, and that the new hands just taken on would not be discharged. After ordering the advertising committee to Advertise for men in all the city papers the meeting adjourned. lie fore the Settlement. Chicago, Oct. JO. At 9 o'clock Mon day it was almost itiiossil)le to reach the desk of Mr. l D. Armour at his city office. The broad stairway and hall of the Home insur ance building were thronged with sturdy, smiling laborers who were flocking to the tag packer for employment .Before 10 a. m. several car-loads of these men were sent tc the stwfe yards. Mr. Armour minuled freelv with the new employes and each one seemed to regard him as a friend. When a reporter got a minuted interview Mr. Armour said: "Things are looking very favorable. We now nave all the beef butchers we want. Th vy have come from all cvei the country. They are not as ex pert as old hands, but everv bo iy now sres that no one has a patent on the neef-kiUing busmess, and that there it nothing aliout it but what any man can learn in a few weeks if he is a moderately good workman to uecin with Our weekly rat roll at the time the men quit work wa $65,4 "W. A good portion of this is now going to the new men. We now have 1,5U0 men iu our bouse altogether. Five hundred cattli were killed and cared for Sunday. I syteaM lor ail the parsers when 1 say that there t no power on earth that will be allowed tc interfere with these new workmen. Tint does not mean that we have any ill-wil toward the rtnkmg men, for we prefer to set ttam at work as before.'" Tltere is little doubt that the strike will bi settled in a few days by the men returning tc tne ten-hour system, or, in other words, real Izing the fact that tl packers can not com pete with other places on the eight-hour svs tem. It is well known that Mr. Fowderlv thinks that under the present circumstances the present effort to inaugurate eight hours ia unwise ana premaiure, ana as air. Harry has been (riven full power to act it Is hiirhlv probable 1 hat the men will be ordered back and that they will obey. It is aknost certain that Barry is trnng to induce Mr. Armour to discharge the "scabs1 hired during the trike, and if thi is done the men will gr back to work. Should Mr. Armonr refuse, the strike may be protracted indefinitely. More "Brans,;! or them, arrived at Ar mour's Monday; also 100 more Pinkertoii men. Packingtown is in a state of siege, and some of the Pinkertn men are charged with conaueting themselves m an arbitrary man ner, which mav lead to trouble. At the yards men gathered in small groups. lauung excitedly. Mere nd there a man is waylaid and hooted nt and sometimes kicked and abused. Hbmes are freipiently thrown at the Pfnkerton men and other unwekome pt'rsons in and about the parking houses, and small boycotts exist here and there, but there is no general outbreak nor is there likely tc be. The scouts sent out hy the knights tc learn the progress of affairs at tn "packing houses reiwirt oix-nly that the pstablishmenU are all broken up, but their reports to their organizations are of a different nature, for a great deal of work is actually being done ny new men on the inside, and even the who openly deny it know it to be so. The new schedule of rates talked of will in crease the wages received under tlie eight hour plan about W cents a day. A man wearing a Pinkerton uniform was passing through the yards Monday morning, and, when near tbe Exchange building, wa set upon by a crowd of young "terriers, who at first only hooted and howled, but finally commenced to throw the loose piece of slag used in making roads. He was struck and stunned, but not to such an extent that he became confused as he reached for his hip-pocket, but before he could get out what ever was there another missile bit him and sent him reeling for a moment. He then un dertook to gt away, but was run into a gauntlet, as it were, enfiladed wjth a crowd of strikers and sympathizers who pelted and worried the man until he fell exhausted, and then th pnvages kicked him about the head until he was senseless, when they stripped him off his coat and tore it into shreds, leaving the man dying in hfs blond in the middle of the road w here he fell. All this happened within a few yards of tbe Lnka Town ball, the headquarters of the police force for tlie town of Lake. The Knights at Richmond.

Scores of them departed from the city on Sunday night trains. Offi cers say the work of revising the laws will lie taken up seriatim and pushed through. There will, it is believed, be nothing radical done in the matter of boycotts. Nearly every one is in faor of increasing the salar ies of the general offlcera. That of general master workman will likely go up to 2,frtlU or $3,00 from $1,500, and the other officer may get $1,500 and $!,?W, whereas they now receive $1,003 annual I v.
