Cleveland's Proclamation In Dis
favor—Naval Reserves Go
to San Jose.
Two ugly Galling nans, like fierce bull
dogs, followed a force of artillery on to the
s'eawboat Alameda as she was moored at
Ihe Presidio wharf yesterday morning.
The pets were the property of tbe Light
Artillery, usder comniaud of Colouel
Graham, and they were ordered to follow
their owners to Oakland— to Ogden if need
be. The President of the United States
had proclaimed the regime of virtual mar
tial law in California, and two days pre
viously had ordered General Kuger, com
manding the military forces In California,
to open up the railroad between San Fran
cisco and Ogden. At an early hour
yesterday morning it was made evident by
the activity on all sides at the Presidio
that both orders were to be executed.
The troops, which had been under mobi
lintlon for nearly ten days, at the-sou^d
of the bugle turned in to pack knap«:»cks
furbish steel and shift the field piece*.
The steamboat Alameda crept up in a
quiet but business-like way to the wharf
at about 11 o'clock. Forthwith the sol
diers detailed to the quartermaster's de
partment commenced to hust'e munitions
of war aboard. In boxes and cans they
carried provisions and supplies. In innu
cent-lookiug. cases branded "U. M. C."
they bore the deadly chunks of lead. It
was a martial scene.
The soldiers had little time or disposi
tion to jest or be merry. They were
und*r the orders of the commander-in
ctiiff of the Atrericau army and they
were going out, perhaps for the first time
in the lives of most of them, to enforce
the laws against men of their own color
and blood.
The stores carried aboard were reck
oned for a thirty days' war/are. Cava ry
as well as artillery were detailed with the
expedition. First light mounted bat
teries. L, H, X and A, of artillery
took ship with all the:r pieces ; then Troops
X and I of cavalry led their horses aboard
and were ready to embark.
Wives, children and loved ones of a few
of the soldiers stood aroimd before the
Alameda cast moorings, and were given
the privilege of.bidaine: eood-oye to their
"bonnie good lads." Few of them un
doubtedly had aDy serious expectation of
losing friends or relatives in whatever
trouble might brew, for it was felt on all
hands td ;<t the presence of the tronps at
any given place would be sufficient to
quiet ii)ol>3 and move trains without inter
ference. Soldiers and commanders seemed
to feel that they were going out to impress
the strikers or rioters, or whoever might
bo concerned, with the dignity and actual
power of arms of the United State 9 Gov
ernment. Serious or long-continued re
sistance was not to be expected.
Just whither the Alameda with her Iron
clad force aboard was bound the officers
did not see fit to confide to the public. The
last seen of the vessel she was going to
ward Angel Island, but tbe broad hint had
been passed about that shs was bound for
Experts said the steamer draws too
much water to go to Sacramento in the
present low condition ol the river, and
later it was ascertained that she would
transfer her troops and armament at Jtio
Vista to vessels of lighter draught.
A Company Starts at Midnight for
Guard Duty.
Last evening there wa9 another military
exodus from this city. Residents on Fourth
street were startl»d al bearing the rumbling
of gun-carriage wheels and the tramp of
drilled men about 11 o'clock.
It was a company of the Naval Battalion
en route for San Jose to take charge of a
passenger train and bring it back this
They embarked in three passenger-can,
and took a mail-car with them, but there
was no Pullman attached. The men, 45 in
number, had a Galling gun with them, and
were individually arme.l with rifles.
Colonel Denis Geary was down at the
depot at Fourth and Towusend streets to
give a parting send-off to the "boys," who
seemed in high spirits at the thought of
active service.
The Railroad Keeping Back Fay.
Orover's Proclamation.
Excited groups of strikers discussed the
President's proclamation at Oakland yes
terday. To say that it came as a thunder
clap is to say little. The general talk is
of a decidedly revolutionary character.
The strikers claim there is no ground for
declaring martial law. They joint to the
good conduct which has marked the strike
from the beginning, and they openly de
clare that the aurainis tration has sided
with Pullman ia the fight. Many of the
strikers are men who voted for Cleveland
last election, but it is safe to say that they
would not do so again with their present
The railroad company has added another
and paintul grievanca to the strike. It
absolutely refuses to pay Its men the
money which is rightfully due them.
Every man who Is out in Oakland has two
months' ray due him. The paycar was
to have arrived on the second day ol the
Strike, but It has not appeared yet. The
men live on credit. Most of them are now
in the third montb of their credit with the
grocers. Many ol them are actually
pressed for the necessities of life. The
matter Is becoming urgent. A committee
was sent over by the A. B. U. to interview
A. N. Towne as regards their money.
The committee first saw James If. Han
lord, the paymaster at Fourth and Town
send streets. That official stated that no
Vuoney would be paid until after the strike
was settled, tie was asked if a portion of
tbe amount due could not be had. Mr.
Eanford declined to accommodate tbs men
to tnat extent. TDen Mr. Towno was
seen. That official just as emphatically
refined to pay the men who are out.
"What is tbe reason?" asked the com
"We bare no money until we enrn it,"
was the eo'.d response.
Then Mr, Towne was asked if be could I
nut issue a time card or check rending that
the bearer was entitled to so much money
firm the Southern Pacific Company.
"We could negotiate that," said Mr.
Towne's visitor.
"Are you an A. R. (J. man?"
"Yes, I am," was the answer.
"Well, who would negotiate that caper
for you?" asked the magnate, curiously.
"That is my private business, sir." re- I
turned the striker, "but I may tell you j
that if you give me such a paper a friend j
will negotiate it for m«."
"Why can't that friend assist you with- !
out?" inquired Mr. Towne.
"Can the Southern Pacific Company set
any money without good security?" de
t mande.l the visitor.
"No," replied Mr. Towne.
"Well, neither can I." said the striker.
"Wei!, I enn't agree to any such
method," replied Mr. Towne, quietly. "It j
would put the paper of the company into |
negotiation," and Mr. Towne went on to i
tell a story about sheep, which be consid
ered pertinent to tbe occasion.
This conversation with Mr. Towne was
repeated to tbe meeting of tbe A. R. U. at j
P% ~ vi/ A<L , Qv^/3
Ilansen's Hall yesterday morning and
served to increase the bitter feeling of the
men fur the company. To make matters
worse the grocers are shutting down on
credit to the men. Places like Walc;>t's,
on Seventh street, where the men have
been dealing for years, have refused credit
absolutely. The strikers gay that the hand
of the Southern Pacific Company is evi
dent in this. Several men reported at yes
terday's meeting that Walcoi's had re
fused to give them credit.
Salaries of engineers on the Oakland
division vary from 8117 to $165 a month of
twenty-eieht day*. Conductors' salaries
run from £90 to Sl2O a month. Brakemen
get anywhere from 565 to $75 a month and
switchmen from J75 to $80. Clerks at the
mole have been busily engaged in the last
few days making up the payrolls for that
So well are the strikers keeping watch
on the movements of the authorities that
no sooner had the steamer Alameda
reached the Presidio wharf than it was
known at West Oakland. It was well
known that four river pilots had gone
aboard the steamer, and that a kitchen
had been fitted up and larder stocked for
the troops. The news was no sooner
known in West Oakland than it was wired
to Sacramento, so tMat tbe people tbere
were very quickly in possession of the fact
that Uncle Sam was bestirring himself.
In the meantime everything was got
in readiness at the mole for the swift and
sudden <!eparture of a train. Six liremen
were brought over on a tug from San
Francisco and set to work on the various
engines lylue "dead" at the mole. The
tenders were stocked with wood, the gear
ing cleaned and oiled, tbe boilers watered
and everything put in such shape that in
side of two hours Mr. 'Wilder declared ho
could run a train out. The deadline of
deputies kept a atricier watch than ever
where these firemen were at work, and no
deputies were allowed to iromenads in
tbe depot. A rumor reached the mole that
the strikers were cuing to visit the depot
just before 4 o'clock, tbe time when tbe
President's proclamation went into effect
and take out the firemen who were
straightening tilings on tne engines.
When their work was dove, therefore, the
mea were placed on board a tug aad sent
to Sao Francisco. When tbe engines are
ready to leave there will bo enough engi
neers to man them. The Brotherhood has
so far resisted all efforts to make it stand in
with the strikers and the men are ready
for duty on the trains at a moment's
The strikers have notified the train dis
patchers at the mole th;it they cannot go
to work after yesterday. Kessermole, one
of the six dispatcher?, was met on his way
to work yesterday afternoon and told that
he could not go to work. He nrgupd the
question with the strikers who finally de
cided to let him finish tbe day's work,
with the understanding that be would not
goto work to-day. They met the other
men as they left work and pave them the
same information. Some of the dispatch
ers are in full sympathy with the strikers
and declare that one request will be suffi
cient to keep them from going to work.
"They tried to move us with the mili
tary," said a prominent striker yesterday,
"and that failed. Now tuey give us the
The name of this gentleman is not
divulged for obvious reasons.
Early yesterday morning, despite tbe
fact that the skies were overcast and tbe
rain pattered persistently on the tin roofs
in W<>st Oakland, the strikers were abroad.
The rumors of the evening before had pre
pared them for President Cleveland's mar-
tial law proclamation, and they read it
eagerly In the papers. The stern order
that they 9hou!d hie them homeward at 4
o'clock in the afternoon had a sort of
depressing effect, and many of the leading
lights of the A. E. U. were soon in con
clave on the situation.
They sat for about an hour, and whun
they again appeared on the 6treet It was
apparent that some weighty question had
been under consideration. Two minutes
later Riding Delegate Hall, mounted on
his Kc-inante, was seen spurring madly
around trip corner of Pine street, ilis
speed bt'ffied pursuit, and the war cor
respondents of the various newspapers
were compelled to stand on the sidewalk
and gnaw their vitals in the consciousness
that something portentous was occurring
and they were not In it.
For an hour the Paul Ravere of Seventh
street was absent and matters were assum
ing alarming proportions when his figure
was seen rounding Wood street, his steed
covered with lather. A few minutes Inter
the strikers assembled in camera mid an
hour afterward the news of the conclave
and the wild ride was announced hy the
Dress committee:
Wherf.as, One Grover Cleveland has or
dered us to disperse and go to our bomes at 4
o'clock on this (Tuesday) nftrrnoon; and
whereas, tlie chickens of this county of Al.i
nieda are allowed until the going down of the
sun, as per report of Kidlne Deleeate Ball here*

respectfully, but firDily, decline to emulate the
residents of the barnyard In the first effort on
the road to wealth. The "early to bed" racket
went out with the Pullman.
"Ye», sir," said Mr. Hall, "after an
hour's careful study of tie inhabitants of
the various henneries in Oukland, from
the plebeian dominick to the domineering;
buff cochin, 1 came to tbe conclusion that
we could not begin to compete with them
on the early roosting proposition. That is
a physical rcas n. I hare another and a
better one. Should we go home early and
stay there what would prevent the South
ern Pacific from getting out a train auy
moment it got ready?
"Not on your life will they get us in bed
And the strikers just hung around the
Point all the moraine and inquired from
eveTy one who came along what they
knew concerning the troops, ana every
body evinced an eagerness to know
whether or not there would be a con
flict between tbe troops and the A. R. U.
The genernl impression was thai ihere
would not, although conic could not rec
oncile this view with the fact that a large
quantity of ammunition had been pur
chased in West Oakland in the j.ast ten
days. Genree Fonda, who keeps a gun
store at 1728% Seventh street, says he has
sold SCOO cartridges since Saturday, and
that all he has left are of the smallest
caliber. •
It Will Await Railroad Action on
Strikers' Proposition.
Another secret session of the committee
of fifteen appointed by the Merchants'
Association, the Chamber of Commerce
and the Board nf Trade, was held yester
day forenoon at the rooms of the Chamber
of Commerce.
The session lasted two hours, nnd re
sulted in no ddiuite action being taken
toward the furtherance of their efforts to
bring about arbitration between the rail
road strikers and thHr employers.
When asked regarding the result of tbe
conference M. P. Jones of the press com
mittee said :
"Things are simply in statu quo with us.
! Each Bide to the controversy was repre
! sented at our meeting and heard what the
I other had to say."
A. S. Towi/e, as representing the rail
road company, appeared in order to learn
; officially just what proposition had been
laid before the committee by the repre
sentatives of the American Hallway Union
on Monday night, and the American Rail 1
: way Union delegates came to listen to
1 what the other side might have to say.
They submitted the terms upon which a
i compromise might be effected as far as they
: were concerned.
They were similar to the propositions
which they have "stood pat" on— that Is
, that all men who went out on strike be re
instated, and that they were willing to
run any and all trains for the company
with the exception of Pullmans, It was
upon these terms only that they would
agree to compromise In any way.
The committee of fifteen took no active
part in the discussion.
"The strikers submitted their terras to
the railroad people," said Mr. Jones, "and
they went away saying they would con
sider then:. The committee then ad
journed, subject to the call of the chair
man, when he has been informed as to
what action the railroad officials desire to
take regarding the proposals of the
strikers." _
The Union Pacific Gives Notice It
Will Handte Freight.
Editor of Th* Call— Deab Sir: The follow
ing telegram lias just been received from our'
Omaha office:
"Our train service bavin* been resumed, we
are now prepared to receive and promptly
handle freight of all Kinds including livestock
and i erlshables, for all potots on the Union Pa
cific system excepting points on the Pacific
division west of Umatilla."
Tne reason which prevents us receiving busi
ness for points located west of Umatllia to Port
land is owing to Uie bad condition of trade
i caused by washouts, which have not as yet
! been repaired, although there Is a force con
; stantly at work, and we hope very snortly to
j have the line open through to Portland.
j This may be of Interest to tlia readers of your
] valuable paper Is the reason why we advise you
of the condition of our service, and it also Indi
j cates that the general strike recently ordered
by President Debs has been raised, so far as
the Uulou Pacific system Is concerned. Yours
truly, G. W. Luce.
Trains Are Once More Running Reg
ularly on That Branch.
Once more the wheels are turning on the
coast divisien. The officials of the road
•tated last evening that the entire train
service would be resumed to-day if no un
foreseen contingency should arise.
It is thought that the strike is at an end
so far as this division is concerned. The
organized effort on the part of the authori
ties in the different towns, cities and coun
ties alone the road to protect railroad
property and assure the movement of trains
has had the effect of greatly encouraging
the railroad officials, and they were in a
comparatively happy frame of mind yes
During the day all the trains which
usually go out of the Third and Townstnd
depot, with two exceptions, were dis
patched, the first to leave being the 8:15
. Monterey express, which departed a little
over an hour late. This morning the early
train, which carries the morning papers as
far as San Jose, will be sent out.
1 It is probable that the freight service
' will be resumed to-morrow, and one train
, may be sent out to-day.
The first passenger train sent out yester
, day was watched, accompanied as far as
) the county line by a detail of twenty no
i | licemen, who disembarked there and came
'<■ J back on the incoming train from San Jose.
A squad of United States deputy marshals,
i however, went through with the train, and
' at the line of each county through which
i it passed a sheriff's posse came on board
: and remained until the territory within
I their jurisdiction bad been passed,
i Few passengers were on hand yesterday,
i the disappointments of the past few days
i having had the effect of creating a belief
1 that the blockade will not be raised witb
- out trouble.
' The railroad officials will not yet hazard
even a guess as to when the overland serv-
I ' ice will da resumed either to Los Angeles
or to tne East, bat the proclamation of the
President *nd the movement of regular
troops has caused them to express the
opinion that the deteution to this class of
travel will continue but a short time.
It Will Qo and Come by the Southern
The Superintendent of the Railway Mall
announced yesterday that overland mails
will hereafter go to Los Angeles, whence
they will be forwarded over the Santa Fe
road. Mails for the coast will also be
transmitted over the southern route.
The steamer State of California, from
Portland, and the City of Puebla ln.m
Pnget Sound, arrived with mails from
Oregon and Washington yesterday. The
steamer Homer, with mails for Willamette
Valley, the Arcata. with mails for Coos
Bay and vicinity, and the Point Lonia.
with mails for Grays Harbor, left yester
day afternoon.
The steamer Eureka, with mails for
Southern California, will depart to-day.
The coast division trains for San Luis
Obispo, San Jose and Monterey will go
out as usual.
None Will Be Allowed During the
Present Excitement.
Chief Crowiey has issued Instructions to
captains in the various districts to allow
no open-air meetings to be held during the
present excitement. If any such meetings
should be attempted a sufficient force of
men must be promptly detailed to disperse
the gathering. Persons disobeying the
order to disperse will be arrested and
The Chief thinks that in these times an
ounce of prevention is better than a pound
or cure. The Incipient riot on Sunday night
has shown him that it would take very
little to precipitate a riot, as there is al
ways a certain element in a crowd eager
tor such a chance to further their own
evil ends.
Some Are for Fight, but the Majority
Counsel Moderation.
Some feeling was manifested yesterday
by a meeting of the *A. R. U. at George
Walton going over to confer with the busi
ness men of Sau Francisco on the situation
ard the prospects. Many men were averse
to meeting the business men at all, and
they were angry at Walton not notifying
all that he had taken such a step. At tbe
meeting yesterday Walton explained his
action satisfactorily to the men. Walton
is one of the hardest workers and most
modest and retiring naen of the union.
He stated yesterday that the Chamber of
Commerce Dad met tbe committee in a
kindly spirit, and tnat he wbs satisfied
they understood better now the points at
issue than ever before. President Roberts
expressed tbe same sentiments.
He claims that his men will not attempt
to resist the United States trooDS should
ther land in Oakland. Notwithstanding
Mr. Roberts' naeiuc assurances there Is a
strong fight-element among the A. R. U.
men. The opposition, however, will not
in all probability be made in Oakland.
The men state that there are enough ob
structions along the main line to tßke
weeks to clear the track 3. Still there is an
uneasy feeling everywnere. Every one
seems to think that no one knows what
a day will bring forth.
Manager Dailey and His Talent
Studying Martial Law.
Manager W. B. Dailey, who has inter
ested himself so far in the present strike
as to arrange two benefits for the American
Railway Union— one at ihe Mechanics'
Pavilion on Thursday evening and a sec
end one for the Sacramento Union on
Saturday evening— is in a quandary as to
just what action would be judicious, aDd
the hundreds of performers who are in
hearty sympathy with ihe strikers are also
guessing whether the strict Interpretation
of martial law would lay them liable to
Immediately uDon the call for assist
ance by performers In tuis city all respond
ed with one voice, and Manager Dailey
found himself asked to condense a pro
gramme that wouid entertain steadily from
8 o'clock until tbe small hours of tne
rooming, and hundreds have since prof
fered tlieir services. Following close upon
this comes President Cleveland's procla
mation declaring this State under military
surveillance, which seems to cover tbe
case in question.
The portion of the proclamation per
taining to the case reads sis follows :
"and any one aiding or abetting It. or giving H
encouragement, or assisting the Insurgents In
suy way. Is deemed an insurgent and liable
upon conviction In the United States court to
be Imprisoned for t>'n yearn and lined f 10,000.
or both such flue and Imprisonment."
Now if the enemies of the A. R. U. wish
to keep that body in an impoverished con
dition they would have to swear out a
wholesale batch of warrants, and the
ninoole acrobat, the serio-comic, the grace
ful song and dance artist and the negro
delineator would have a jolly time under
tbe law, for a few hours at least, in which
to study ud something new.
Many of Manager Dailey's friends have
advised him to withdraw, but Billy is not
constructed on that line and moreover be
firmly Delieves that even the strictest in
wrpretation of the written law does nnt
affect the benefits. He will carry them to
a successful termination and place a few
hundred dollars in the treasury of this
new yet powerful organization, tlie mem
bers of which were his former working
