"I am very glad that you called, for ths
story has now gained such general circula- i
tion and credence in certain quarters that j
it is high time to state the facts of the case, j
Last Saturday some men called on j
me and tried lo induce me to let J
them have the use of the tower for |
signal purposes. They came again on |
Sunday upon the same errand, and on j
Monday a couple of young men met me
downtown, nsar Front s'reet, and em
ployed all the eloquence at their command
to induce me to yield to their request. In
every Instance I politely but firmly de
clined to allow them the use of the tower
or any portion of the cathedral for any
such purpose. Who the men were, Ido
not know, but they ere evidently striker*.

Something to the Credit of the
Militia at Last.
Sacramento, July 11.— Uuder the di- |
rection of Colonel Graham, who assumed j
command of the situation immediately |
upon his arrival this morning, three com- j
panics of militia were detailed to make a j
thorough search of Die lower cud of town j
with a view of appropriating any arms j
found in the possession ot persons known
to be affiliated with the strikers. When
the State troops marched frnm tneir camp \
at -he capitoi citizens who saw the form
able array of citizen soldiery Indulged in \
much speculation and conjecture as to the
motive of their movements.
Immediately upon reaching the lower I
end of the city a search of all the houses
was instituted, lv many instances the i
inmates were seated at the table enjoying
their evening meal when the measured j
tread of soldiers aroused them from tlieir
peaceful surroundings to the fact that they
were io be dealt with by unyielding mili
tary law.
Fear and consternation ran rampant |
throughout every household visited. The
demand of the troops for all the inmates
to surrender whatever arms they had in
their possession met with prompt re
sponses. They seemed to realize that a
serious condition of affairs existed, and, !
being informed of the penalty of diso- j
bedience of the order, made haste to de- j
liver whatever arms they had.
An immense crowd gathered about the j
troops and watched their movements with '■■
bated breath, The strikers' headquarters
at Front and I streets was the first place j
to be inspected. When the militia arrived I
there they found an immense crowd con
gregated without the building, while
within was a great crowd discussing the
events of the pending hours. When the
object of tne visit was stated all the men
present declared that no arms were
secreted about the premises. This denial
was in contradiction to the authenticated
report that the strikers could arm a great
force of men from the arms at head
quarters. A diligent search resulted in
unearthing several sword bayonets which :
were stolen from the armory of the Ber- j
sigliari Guard several weeks ago. These j
Implements ot war wero taken possession
of and the militia proceeded on a tour of
inspection amid ominous silence.
From the strikers' headquarters com
mand was given to search the old Wells,
Fargo & Co.'s building, which has been
a stronghold of Knox, Compton and Mullen
ever since the injunction was served on
the former last Saturday. This building
has been regarded as a veritable strong
hold of the strikers, and was thought to
contain arms without number aud of all
descriptions. '.'. The structure, however, did
not yield much, as after a thorough search
less than a dozen rifles, pistols and swords
were secured. Every rooming-house on
lower J and X streets was Inspected here
and the small arms were found and con
At a late hour to-night the search is
being continued, but without further sen
sational developments. The determined
manner of conducting the search on the
part of the militia was a matter of favora
ble comment by all who witnessed the
operations. They evinced a thorough
knowledge of what was required, and fear
lessly executed all commands. The result
of the search is given as fifty rifles, 100
rounds of ammunition, seven sacks of bolt
heads, which were undoubtedly intended
for use in the cannon which was stolen
yesterday from a citizen, as reported.
The Southern Pacific to Be Opened
From Ogden.
Ogden, Utah, July 12.— Late last night
a train left for the Weston the Southern
Pacific road bearing four companies of the
Sixteenth Infantry, How far the train is
expected to go is not known. Mail and
passenger trains will be sent out this
morning. It is believed that one company
of soldiers are to be stationed at Truckee,
one at Wadswortb, one at Reno and one at
Carlin. until the present trouble is set
tled. The four companies of the Sixteenth
Regiment that went West are under com
mand of Colonel Poland of the Seventeenth
Salt Lake, July ll.— Four companies
of ihe Sixteenth Regiment at Fort Douglas
are held under orders to go out on the
Southern Pacific road on short notice. The
Union Pacific road will start out a thorough
train for Portland to-night, being the first
since the big floods of last month. With
the exception of a short stretch the road
bed has been put in good condition. ,
Still No Orders Have Been Given for
More Troops.
Vai.i.kjo. July 11.-— All day long the
sound of volleys of musketry has vibrated
from one end of the island to the other.
From early ln the morning until sundown
the blue jackets were drilling in the yard.
They were put through all manner of evo
lutions and engaged in firing in all manner
of positions, even to lying down behind
trees and buildings. It is proposed by
the commandant of the navy-yard that it
his men are ordered away for duty they
shall have sufficient practice In the firing
of their arms.. Over 100,0.0 rounds of
blank ammunition have been used within
the past day or two.
At the f'fficial headquarters all was ex
tremely quiet during the day so far as offi
cial orders were concerned for the moving
of forces. Scarcely a move was made on
the outside that Captain Howison was not
notified. Within twenty feet ol his desk
is a telegraph operator, who has kept him
Informed of the situation. It is not ex
pected that any orders will be received to
night, though If they come the command
ant will be ready to fill them.
Quite a crowd gathered at the South Val
lejo depot this morning to see if any of the
trains sent out last night would return, and
to see what the strikers would do if they
should. They did not have long to wail, as
engine 1190 with Engineer John Ruther
ford and Fireman Shortridge in the cab,
pulled the Callstoea passengers in just a
little behind time. Shortly afterward En
gineer Gedge, accompanied by a strange
fireman, came in with the train irom
Suisun, carrying mail and express from
the Vac a Valley branch of the railroad.
No strikers were in sight and the passen
gers and freight were quickly transferred
to the Amador and started for the city.
Gedge's engine, 1562, was taken to the
roundhouse, while Rutherford's engine
was turned over to Commodore o'K>efe to
in ike up trains, their regular switch-engine
being dead at tbe roundhouse. Just as
the job had been finished and the engines
started for the roundhouse, the strikers
met her near Shaey's warehouse and sig
naled the engineer to stop. As soon as he
did so the strikers took possession, and
after some little altercation with O'Keefe,
both he and Rutherford left the engine and
returned to the shop. The strikers ran
the engine on the main track, and after
blowing all the steam and water out of the
boiler, drew the fire and emptied the water
tanks, but did no further damage. They
then proceeded to the roundhouse and
mounted engine 1.62, which had brought
in the Suisun train, and running her out to
the main line, killed her as effectually a->
they had the previous one. The water
was then run out of three spare en
gines in the roundhouse, and the strikers'
work was completed except to keep watch.
This the leader said should be done to pre
vent any movement to start up the engines
and to keep any persons from injuring
The strikers this morning were uuder
the leadership of a man from Benicia,
Hale, the Sacramento man who started
the strike here, barms been called to San
Francisco. None of the trainmen running
out of South Vallejo are striking except
the firemen who took their trains out last
night but in two instances refused to bring
them back this morning. The Santa Kosa
train is held up there by Fireman Laurie,
aud Tom Kelly left his engine at Suisun,
refusing to fire on the trip down. The
oiler at Suisun shoveled coal on the down
trip, but the strikers' committee had a talk
with him and h» promised not to go back.
He sat in the roundhouse and looked
cheerfully on while the engines were being
killed. The situation at South Vallejo
seems to be such that it is impossible for
the company to send out trains even it
they could get firemen to man them. Six
engines are dead, three iv the house and a
like number, including the Yolo, on the
tracks. Meanwhile tiie strikers are on
guard and apparently have the best of the
situation. They say their work is done
and they are waiting for the company to
make a move. Passengers who came up
on the steamer Amador from San Fran
cisco this evening for Calistoga, Suisun and
other points were obliged to take private
conveyance or remain in town. No engines
were allowed to go out. Sheriff Hender
son was ou the groutid with deputies and
officers from Vallejo. No disturbance was
raised and no attempt was made to fire up ■
the dead locomotives.
Not Likely to Be Any Trouble at
San Jose.
Sax Jose, July 11. Trains are arriving
and departing this morning with ac
customed regularity, guarded by United
States Marshals and Deputy Sheriffs.
Officials report all quiet at way stations iv
this crunty. At 2:30 o'clock this morning
Company C of the naval reserve arrived
in this city by special train and camped
near the roundhouse, west of the deoot.
The company numbers fifty men, in c m
mand of Lieutenant Douglas. The com
pany brengbt along a II tcbtriss gun.
A number of deputies went to Gilroy
this morning, it being reported that a large
crowd of strikers and sympathizers had
gathered at that point. There are no
Knights of Labor organizations here now.
There are numerous labor unions in the
city, nearly all of which belong to the
Federated Trades. Their organizations
will hold a meeting to determine the ques
tion of the 6irike on the order of Sover
eign. The meeting has not yet been called,
but will be.
A trass-meeting was held at Turn Ve
rein Hall this evening under the auspices
of the A. R. U. and the Federated Trades.
The speeches were all mild in tone, ad
vising respect of law and order. No reso
lutions were adopted. Ten additional
Deputy United Slates Marshals were
sworn in to-night for service on tbe trains
to-morrow. At ten o'clock }o-night a train
of thirty empty freight cars was sent out
to Santa Cruz. No resistance was offered.
Fo rmed to Replace the Militia if
Ordered Away.
Bakersfield, July 11.— Late last night
Company G, Sixth National Guards, re
ceived orders from General Dimond to
muster at the armory at 6 o'clock tliis
morning for active service. The company
is still waiting orders. Fearing the com
pany would be called away from here
fifty of the principal business men,
including bankers and lawers, together
with Hulburt Post of the Grand Army of
the Republic met at the Opera-house and
organized themselves into a company.
They then passed resolutions pledging
their moral as well as their physical sup
port to officers of law In the protection
of property and the enforcement of the
statutes. A solemn oath was taken to
uphold the constitution of both the United
States and the State of California, and to
protect any and all public or private prop
erty, even at the risk of their lives. The
company is well armed and is composed of
intelligent and d etermined men.
They Were Excellent Soldiers and
Exemplary Citizens.
The muster-roll of thu Fifth Artillery
was taken to Sacramento with the regi
ment, and the only duplicate of it is in
Washington. The ages and length of
service of each man Is known approxi
mately, however, at the Presidio.
All the killed and wounded men bear the
highest reputation in the regiment. They
are said to have been model soldiers in
every respect, obedient to their officers
and efficient in the fulfillment of their mil
| itary duties. Among their comrades they
are spoken of with esteem and affection.
It happens fortunately that all the men In
Battery L of the Fifth Artillery are un
married, and consequently none ot the de
ceased leave widows or familes.
A particularly sad fact about Private
James Burns is that, after twenty years'
service, he would have retired on a pension
had he lived nine more days. He was a
man 40 years of age, still hale and active,
and an excellent soldier. At the end of
each term he had re-enlisted, but was
looking forward to leaving the army for
good on the L'Otb inst. and living quietly
the rest of his days. His comrade, were
alt aware of his hopes and aspirations, and
the fact that he should have been killed on
the eve of his retirement, after twenty
years of service, aroused as much comment
and commiseration as the painful circum
stances surrounding his death.
Private Lubberden was a bright, intel
ligent young fellow 22 years of age, who
had only been a short time in the army.
Private Clarke had seen ten yesrs" ser
vice. He entered the army at the age of
18, and was consequently 28 years ol age.
tie was an efficient soldier and was a gen
eral favorite.
Private Dougan. although 26 years of age,
is serving his first enlistment. He is
rather a small mau in stature as soldiers
go iv the artillery, but is spoken of as being
full of energy and pluck.
Private Ellis, who is only 22 years of
age, is a new and promising recruit.
Private Wilson, 27 years old, has only
been in the army a year, during which
time he has won an excelleut record for
He Was One of the Oldest and Best
Known on the Road.
Samuel C. Clark, the dead engineer, was
one of the oldest employes, both lv point
of years, in actual service and in age on
the Southern Pacific road. He was born
in .Stetson, Me., and was in his sixtieth,
year. He commenced work on the Sacra
mento division in the capacity of a firemati|
on August 25. 1866, and in 18119 he was
transferred to the Western division and
given charge of an engine, and he has re
mained in that division ever 6iuc*. He
ran what is technically known as Nos. 3
and 4, between Oaklaud and Sacramento.
For a long time he ran the Berkeley local,
and he has a brother, Lem Clark, who is
now on the same run.
Mr. Clark was a married man, and his
| family resides in Oakland. Among botb
the officials of the road and bis fellow-
I employes he was always a great favorite.
In 1892 he wrote a letter to the officials
{ of the road in which he summarized his
work for the company, and in which he
stated that he had up to this time been
! twenty-one years in continual service, hay
! ing covered a distance of 1,000,051 miles, or
! an average of 114.4 per day, and had only
| met with two slight accidents.
He stated in his letter that he thought he
j had reason to be proud of the record, as in
I all his experieicshe had never heard of
: nn engineer who had either excelled or
equaled the same.
F. V. Meyers, chairman of the Brother
! hood of Locomotive Engineers on this
; coast, in speaking of Mr. Clark's death
| last night, expressed bis great sorrow and
| spoke feelingly of his many admirable
j traits of character. Mr. Meyers added
1 that the engineers who have remained on
; duty have in several Instances been
j threatened with death and warned that if
i they persisted in working they would
return only to find their homes destroyed.
Mrs. J. M. Jordan, sister of Engineer
Clark, was notified of the probable death
of her brother on the ditched train at
Sacramento, and about 4 o'clock she came
down to the point and called up Stockton,
wbere another brother is a physician. He
also had been informed by telegraph of
tbe tragedy and their conversation was
j confined to the sad affair.
Mrs. Jordan leaves for Sacramento by
| boat this morning.

Who Obstructs the
Trains ?
How They Violate the
On the Make-Up of Regular
Mail Trains.
No Man Who Is Responsible for
Delay Can Escape in the
Los Angeles, July 11.— After the first
show of lawlessness last night, both Fed
eral and railroad officials were greatly
agitated to-day and a new line of action
had to be pursued. The feeling of security
hail tended to a relaxation of patroling
and closely guarding the railroad tracks
and yards. Deputy Marshals' and Deputy
■fceriffs were not kept so strictly to duty
■jsd even the police details were reduced,
,J|js-day all Is different, guards are doubled
where and after dark fully 150 men
HKll be stationed at the San Fernando
street yards and the Southern Pacific and
Santa Fe depots.
The first acts of violence proved to have
been worse than was imagined last night.
Out at Aurant station, nearly three miles
from town, five freight cars were run off a
siding upon the main track and two were
derailed. This happened about midnight,
and early this morning the blockade was
discovered and word was sent to town by
telephone. Tho Monrovia local was first
at the blockade at 8 a. _£„ but as no wreck
ing crew appeared until after 9 o'clock the
passengers walked to the city. The de
railed cars were replaced by th. crew of
the local tram, which then moved into the
blockade at the Alhambra-avenue bend.
Two other locals came up shortly after
and all tho passengers left the cars and
walked a few blocks to the cable-cars.
The wreck was cleared by 10 o'clock by
a crew working under the protection of a
strong guard of police and soldiers. The
road was then clear for trains and a
patrol was placed on the tracks. Cars were
transferred to the backward siding to the
yards where they can be watched. The
arrival of the train from Santa Barbara
excited a gang at a station outside of town
to throw rocks, one of which crashed
through a car window and terrified the
passengers within.
Officers of the A. R. U. say that the
order expressly discountenances acts of
violence or Interference with railroad
property, and assert that the strikers had
nothing to do with the accidents of last
night. Tbe matter was taken up by rail
road detectives, police detectives and the
United States Grand Jury, but so far no
arrests have been made. A railroad de
tective stated this afternoon that some of
the parties implicated in blocking the line
were known and that arrests would be
made immediately the chain of evidence
was closed around them. The police say
they could not succeed in getting informa
tion of the character desired, but they
knew that a large number of eye-witnesses
have refused to inform on the culprits.
All day the Grand Jury was in session
devoting its energies to the detection of
the lawless gang that so unexpectedly
broke the peace of the city. Several rail
road employes were examined, but though
indictments were expected au adjournment
was taken until to-morrow, when the in
vestigation will be continued.
Judge Ross gave instructions to the
Grand Jury to-day covering fully every
question that arises in the legal aspect of
the strike. They go deeply iuto the sub
ject and by many are viewed as a decision
of the Judge, as they are an opinion from
that fearless jurist. The events of last
night are also reviewed. As a thoughtful
view of both sides of the situation these
opinions are given. >
"Gentlemen of the Grand Jury: You
have already been informed by the court
that uuder and by virtue of the provisions
of the statutes of the United States ail
railroads, or parts of railroads now iv
operation, are post roads, and every rail
road company in the United States whose
road is operated by steam is authorized to
carry upon and over its road, boats,
bridges, ferries, all passengers troops,
Government supplies, mail*, freight and
property on their way from any State to
another State and connect with roads of
other States so as to form continuous
hues for transportation of tbe same to
place of destination. The railroad which
is a link in a through line of road by which
passengers and freight are carried into a
State from other States and from that
State to other States is engaged in the
business of interstate commerce, and
every combination or conspiracy in re
straint of such trade or commerce is by
statute declared to be illegal, and the per
sons so combining or conspiring are by
law guilty of the commission of a crime,
whether they be railroad presidents, man
agers, superintendents, conductors, engin
eers, brakemen or firemen.
" 'Commerce with foreign countries and
among the States, strictly considered,'
said the Supreme Court of the United
States in County of Mobile vs. Kimball,
102, U. S., 691-702, 'consists in intercourse
and traffic, including in these terms navi
gation aud the transportation and transit
of persons aud property, as well as the
purchase, sale and exchange of commodi
ties,' and Mr. Pomeroy, in his work on
constitutional law, section 378, referring
to the signification of the word commerce,
says, Tt includes the fact of intercourse
and of traffic, and the subject matter of
intercourse and traffic. The fact of inter
course and traffic again embraces all the
means, instruments, and places by, and in
which intercourse and traffic are carried,
and furthest of all comprehends the act of
carrying them on at these places and by
and with these means. The subject
matter, of the intercourse or traffic
may be either things, goods, chat
tels, merchandise or persons. All
these may, therefore, be regulated
"Congress has passed laws to regulate
such commerce, thereby requiring car
riers engaged in such transportation of
persons and property to transport them in
accordance with and subject to the pro
visions of the act, and has provided,
among o'her things, that any common
carrier subject to the provisions of the in
terstate commerce act, or whenever any
such common carrier is a corporation, any
director or officer thereof, or any receiver,
trustee, lessee, agent or person acting lor
or employed by such corporation, who,
alone, or with any other corporation, per-
son or party, shall willfully omit or fail
to do any act, matter or thing required to
be done by the act, or shall cause or will
fully suffer or promote any act, matter or
thing so directed or required by the act to
be done, not to be done, or shall aid or
abet such omission or tire, shall be
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and pun
ished In a certain prescribed way.
"lv respect to the malls of the United
States, it is declared by statute that any
petson who shall knowingly and willfully
(T i [
I £jt#STO»r
\ /OS AA/G£L£5 I \
obstruct or retard the passage of the mail
is guilty of a crime and shall be punished.
It is further provided by statute of the
United States that the Postmaster-General
shall in all cases decide upon what trains
and in -hat manner the mails shall be
conveyed, and that officer has, through his
subordinates, designated the Southern
California Railway Company end the
Southern Pacific Railway Company in this
judicial district and the regular passenger
trains of these roads for the carrying of
the United States mails. Neither of these
companies is by the law required to run
any other trains than their regular passen
ger trains for the carrying of the mails,
and their failure to do so is not a violation
of any law of the United Stales. But on
all of their regular passenger trains
whether they be local or through trains,
they are required to carry the mails, and
failure or refusal to do so is unlawful.
"As respects interstate commerce, rail
road companies engaged in such com
merce should, unless prevented by circum
stances beyond tlieir control, run their
trains in a reasonable manner as often as
the ordinary business of commerce re
quires. At the same time, as owners of
the property they are legally and justly
entitled to determine how many and what
cars and engines shall constitute the
trains, and when the composition of trains
as usually and ordinarily made up by them
is reasonable and appropriate to the ser
vice required of them the law does not,
upon the refusal of their employes to
move the usual and customary trains, re
quire of such companies to divide the
train and send a less number of cars.
"The court has further instructed you,
and again repeats, that any and every per
son, whether an employe of the railroad
company in high or low position, or not
employed at all, who shall knowingly and
willfully obstruct or retard the passage of
the -mail is guilty of a crime against the
United States, and that any and every
person, whether an officer or employe of
a railroad company ornot, who knowingly
and willfully interferes with or obstructs
any interstate commerce, is guilty of an
offense against a law of the United States,
and that if any two or more persons, it
makes no difference who they are, con
spire to commit either of these offenses
against the United States and one or more
of such parties do any act to effect the ob
ject of the conspiracy, all of the parties to
such conspiracy are guilty of a crime
whenever such acts are of a character to
prevent and obstruct the carrying of the
mails or interference with or obstruct any
interstate commerce, and are done for the
purpose and with the intent to prevent or
obstruct the samo a crime is committed.
When the acts which create the obstruc
tion are in themselves unlawful, an inten
tion to obstruct wiil be imputed to their
author, although the attainment of other
ends may have been his primary object.
"Since preparing the foregoing instruc
tions the court is informed that certain
lawless and criminal acts were committed
in this city last night, and you are in
structed to forthwith inquire whe her any
such acts fall within the criminal statute'
of tbe United States, as heretofore pointed
out and explained to you by the court, and
if you find that any of the laws of the
United States were thereby violated you
should forthwith indict the offending per
Strikers at Los Angeles Say They
Are Not in With It.
Los Angeles, July 11.— The chief train
dispatcher of the Santa Fe depot said to- i
night tbat double service of trains to Santa
Monica and Redondo began at 6 o'clock A.
si. and a regular overland with Pullman
and mails left at 7 a. M.
The Santa Fe system is preparing a new
time schedule as a part of the new man
agement under the United States receiver,
and it will go into effect in a few days.
Passenger train service is to be reduced,
and that means a decrease in the number
of employes.
All the striking employes had to resign
or accept the alternative of being In con
tempt of court for refusing to obey orders.
They'are being paid off and their names
scratched from the rolls, while new men
with experience are taking their places.
A detail of twenty-five regulars weut out
on the overland aud returned on the incom
ing train from the East, which came in three
sections at 9 A. M-, 10:30 A, M. and 3p. m.
There were twenty-four cars, including
five mailcars, seven baggage, and the rest
passenger coaches, Pullmans and sleepers.
As many as 250 passengers were on the
three sections.
The regular service on the kite-shaped
track of three rouud trips daily is main
tained. The freight trains were dispatched
to-day, one for San Bernardino and the
East, another for San Diego and a third
came from San Bernardino to Los Angeles
via Orange. Besides, freight service,
mainly for lumber, from Redoudo wharf
was opened.
Ordinary local trains came and went at
the Southern Pacific depot as usual, but
the San Francisco train lies outside the
building and is deserted, the passengers
having made up their minds that it would
not leave.
A freight train is made up for San Fran
cisco to start at 4 A. M. tu-morrow under a
strong guard of deputy marshals. The
Sunset overland left at noon witn Pullman
and mail guarded by troops and deputies.
The overland that left the day before was
tied up at Yuma, but moved east this after
The conductor refused to work with non
union brakemeu, but the difficultly was
settled and immediately the train moved,
and to-day the overland went East at the
same time. Last night the following dis
patch was received from Arizona:
Tucson, July 11. 8 p. K.
We are now i early to take anything you send
us. We have all agreed to live happy together
and work in harmony.
J. _s. Noble, Division Superintendent.
The Sunset freight overland was de
layed here because the fireman declined to
go out. Iv the afternoon, however, he
changed his mind, and the train is now
miles out. Freights will move after dark
for the present.
The United States Attorneys nave been
informed that an intimidation committee
is working among the railroad men now
at work.
Whether the committee is self-appointed
could not be determined, but the names of
several engineers who were approached by
its members and threatened with personal
violence were given the attorneys. This
startling^ information aroused tbe officials
to take firm stand, and it is being closely
investigated. . "
It is said that the threats go so far as to
include the families of engineers and rail
road men in its vowed vengeance. A. R.
U. men declare with anger that it is not a
true story, as none of their members have
thought of such action.
As in the case of derailing and turning
freigh tears, the blame is placed on the
rowdy element, whose sympathies are
stronger than their scruples.
The Santa Barbara train arrived at 9:10
P. M- with a guard of troops and several
detained passengers from Bakersfield, who
drove to Saugus and came here on the

Pacific deoot stated to-night that the fire
men had held a conference and decided to
report for duty in a body to-morrow.
These statements are denied at the Ameri
can Railway Union headquarters; At a
late hour all is quiet here.
__TMA, Ariz., July 11.— The strike has

Chicago, July 11.— The ultimate effect
of the appeal issued last night by General
Master Workman Sovereign t.i the Knights
of Labor calling on all Knights through
out the country and those in sympathy
with them to quit work, and the order
issued at about the same time by the rep
resentatives of allied labor In Chicago to
do likewise, cannot yet b j certainly fore
seen. All that is now definitely known is
that the Knights of Labor at all pom s
heard from, including nearly all of the
large centers of population in the United
States, remained at work to-day with prac
tical unanimity, aud that in this city the
number of members of the allied trades
who remained at work so far outnumbered
those who quit as to make m> appreciable
change in the industrial appearance of the
city. The leaders, however, say there is
nothing in the situation to cause any dis
couragement, and that the public through
lack of knowledge of the machinery of
industrial organization his been made to
expect results which were not in contem
plation when the strike orders were issued.
Mr. S ivereign, for instance, points out
that his appeal was not an order to strike,
(bat, in fact, he has no power to order a
walkout, but that persons acquainted with
the working of the organization will know
that in effect it will be the same as an
order, In short, he was perfectly confi
dent that by Saturday next, after the
various local and district assemblies bad
time to meet and take formal action on
the appeal and to rally their friends out
side the order, the result would show
1,000,000 men idle as a consequence.
The local lenders also claimed that a
1 ttie time was the only necessary condi
tion to a walkout of the 100,000 men wh om
they represent, and that by Saturday,
after the various organizations had had
time to consult together, the tie-up of
business would be fully as effective ns
they predicted. Surface indications so
tar, however, do not bear out the claims
of eitlier Mr. Sovereign or the Chicago
men. It is not recorded yet that any dis
trict assembly of the Knights of Labor
has voted to strike.
On the other hand, the Brooklyn df--^
trlct, which is composed "t railroad men.l
and therefore naturally supposed to be inj
sympathy with their fellows in the West, !
at a meeting to-day confined their ex
pressions of sympathy to a tender of finan
cial aid, but declined to strike. Locally,
several of the organizations, members of
the Federated Trades, have given it to be
understood that they do not intend to go
out. Furthermore, it. is known that there
was a large conservative element in the
representative trades meeting, which
passed the resolution having a strike in
view, and it is understood that they have
been earnestly at work ever since te
minimize the result of that action.
In the meantime continued Improvement
in the railroad situation here and else
where, except at Sacramento and Oak
land, California, is noted.
Tne general public as well as organized
labor is looking forward with marked in
terest to the meeting of the executive
board of the American Federation of La
bor, and, perhaps, the most powerful or
ganization of the kind In the country, in
this city to-morrow and is action is ex
pected to have a marked effect on the out
come of the present industrial struggle. It
has been known that the position of
