In fact there is twice as much water poured on the streets everywhere ut twice the cost there ought to be to Mr. Crowell and Mr. Stockwell, and not doing half so much good as half as much water would do. The effect can already be seen, on Main street where a passing team makes seV' eral times as much noise as it did a year ago. The puddles of water soften some of the stone which is then worn down, making the street rough and rapidly destroying the ma cadam road. All that is wanted is to Keep the dust laid, not to have the streets a perpet ual mud puddle. The sprinkler ought to be finer.more spray like and the cart ought not to pass so often. Gov. Fuller was the leading spirit of the good roads conference held lust week at Ash bury Park, N. J., under the auspices of the department of agriculture, the first gathering of the kind every held in the country. Tliere were 400 delegates present, representing 41 states and one territory, and there was a good deid of information exchanged and interest created in the matter. Among the most prom inent of those who have engaged in the work and who contributed to the instruction of the occasion were : Geo. A. Perkins, president of the Massachusetts highway commission; J. W. Vatley, chairman of Vermont's commis sion; G. AV. AVhittaker of the Connecticut Board of Agriculture; Rowland G. Hazard of Rhode Island and many able men repre- seuteu in one way or outer special interest in good roads. Gov. Fuller presided and in his address said that there are a million and half miles of poor roads in the Union. The roads, he said, in this countrv are as bad as those in the Sahara desert. He denounced the method of allowing the farmers to work out their taxes on the road. . "Let them pay taxes and we'll pay them," Said tho governor, Me torn oi ine wont mat nau neen none in Vermont and estieclallv at the Franklin ! ty plan, of county meetings of road commis sioners, each bringing with him samples of tne gravel, clay, loam or sou or nis locality and then building a miniature road of these materials as an object lesson a plan which he thought productive of much good. Too many of our people are entirely ignorant about tne maKing or our roaus, wnue scores upon scores of the road commissioners do not know the difference betweeu the bank gravel and the river-washed pebbles. Road laying has come to be a question of science, and we need geologists as well as engineers A committee on organization was then ap pointed. It was resolved that such a confer. ence of organized societies and individual friends of the cause should be held each year, and that an advisory committee be selected by the delegates to aid in spreading literature on the subject aud securing legislation, while a central executive committee of three should be chosen from this larger one. Gov. Fuller was made memlier for that state of both these committees aud chairman of both. THE GREAT STRIKE. SATURNALIA OF ARSON AND BLOODSHED AT CHICAGO.

The great strike, whose storm center has been Chicago, reached its climax of violence Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and since then owing to the vigorous action of President Cleveland and the Federal government, has been on the wane, though a desperate effort is being made bv the trades unions of Chicago and the national organization of Knights of Labor to sustain It by ordering sympathetic strikes in Its support. The area of disorder has embraced the whole country, except the extreme enst and the south, ror the first time in her history, Chicago was unable to unload, for several days, a single car load of live stock. So complete was the boycott that not one steer, not a sheep, not a solitary hog arrived by means of steam transportation. AVednesdav of last week there was but one day's supply of ice in Chicago.

On the train were many invalids en route to Califor nia, who were obliged to suner ior hours in that horrible locality. In another instance a train load of passengers from California was abandoned within ten miles of Chicago, and the people had to be transported to tbe city iu teams. ' The strikers Had everything m i Chicago completely tied up on Thursday. They broke the glass in every train which attempted to force a passage, stoned the engineer Uud fire men and forced them to leave tneiri engines and blocked the tracks by tearing up! switch es and overturning cars. A train tarrying two companies of soldiers arrived at She scene of trouble on the Rock Island trades that moi'iiitiL' and as soon as the soldiers' formed on the tracks the mob started for tneni. The soldiers drove them away at the point of the bavonet. but 'without firing a shot. The strike reached the climax of excitement and peril on Friday, whenlthemob begun to wreck and burn cars and stone engineers. They were fired upon by the police with fatal re sults. For the 24 hours ending at midnight Friday, there were 62 tire alarms in Chicago from ' burning railroad property, nearly all being on the south side. Several times the railroad shoos were on fire. Miles of their track were ruined bv the fierce heat;hun dreds of switch and signal towers with their exnensive mechanism were utterly ruined Thousands of cars and untold quantities of merchandise of every description fed the flames and irorsred the larder of thieves; Valu able locomotives have been wrecked and dis abled: miles of tangled wires and private nnles litter tbe ground.

The most serious trouble occurred on Sat urday. A wrecking train was at work clear ing awuv the debris of some cars which hud been fired bv the strikers, and was guarded by a company of militia. A mob of 2,000 people, composed largely of Poles and Hobe- mians, gathered iu tbe vicinity, and content ed itself, for a while with hurling impreca tions at the soldiers and police. Becoming emboldened at the pacific attitude of the troops thev eoinmenoed throwing stones, bricks, coupling pins and anything that could be ued for missiles. It became evident that stern measures were necessary, and the sol diers were ordered to tire.

( A young woman who was watching the con flict was killed by a stray bullet. A desperate attempt was made to burn the packing houses at the stock yards. AVaste soaked with oil was thrown "into cars in the yards and set on fire and the police and firemen were stoned when thev arrived. Marshal Fitzgerald was seized and thrown into a pond of water. But the police stuck to their ground aud finally succeeded in driving the rioters away and extinguishing the flames. All day long the troops were kept busy guarding railroad property and the mob surged from one point to anotlier, creating trouble everywhere they appeared. thorn. Gov.

They have agreed to the Morgan said, would be considered public enemies, und it further said that there would bo no hesita tion in the decisive treatment of the guilty. Monday evening the president issued a second proclamation, broader in its scope than the first. The proclamation commanded all per sons engaged in or connected with unlawful acts in North Dakota. Montana, Idnho,AVash Ington, Wyoming, Colorado, California, Utah and New Mexico to disperse on or before 3 p. m., July 10. The situation has steadily improved since Saturday. On mommy suburban, as well as through" passenger trams were running with out interference, and indications were that the regulars und militia bad broken the back of the strike. Nearly all of the' passenger truins in Chicago were running on time, and a train of 50 cars, loaded with beef, left the stock-yards for the east tho first one since the strike began. The danger points in the city continued to be guarded by regular and state troops, deputy marshal!) and police, and few attempts at disorder and almost no dam age to property were reported. In nearly every other state, except California, the rail roads seemed to be gaining ground. There were clashes at many points hi the west and southwest, however, and some blood was shed. The seat of war was transferred from Chi cago to Hammond, Ind., just across the har bor line, and where from an early hour mob violence reigned supreme. Two companies of regulars were dispatched to the scene. them aro calculated to remove offensive fea tures. The House conferees have already ac cepted most of the reductions made by the Senate including those on china ware. The main contest will be on the sugar schedule, to which the oppositon In the House is very de ckled antl strong numerically. That some change will be made in the schedule is certain. The Senate conference will make an effort to include bounty allowances on the coming crop. That allowance was included in the Senate caucus agreement and was abandoned at the last hour for the reason that it was de sired to dispose of the bill last week Tuesday. There seems to be an understanding among Democratic senators that the bounty allow ance will be arranged in conference in a man ner that will be acceptable to the sugar grow ers. The intention has been raised whether the growers of domestic sugar are not entitled to a bounty under the existing law. It is provided that producers of such sugar, to be entitled te bounty, shall tile, prior to July of each year, with the commissioner or internal revenue application for a license, together with notice of the place of production and an estimate of the quantity of sugar to be pro duced In the current vear.

That, be opined, would teach employers to treat their men fairly. Davis, the new senator froin Minnesota, I law ley of Connecticut anil Gor don of Geoigia, answered him with vigor. "There was no doubt." Davis said, "that there are vast questions of the rights of labor and capital to be settled bv the American peo ple. But this is not the Mine to settle them. The proposition Is just as foolish as if some one, when the buttle lines were drawn at Gettysburg, had Insisted that the impending conflict should be withheld until Lee and EUGENE V. DEBS.

That senator would annihilate the legislative and executive departments of the government ami have tho public affair ad ministered by a 'committee of safety' as In the 'days of terror of the first French Involu tion.' " Gordon recalled "at no little pain and some misgiving," the prophecy of Macaulav that in some great public upheaval, like that which confronted the country to Inv, the republic, would either lose its civilization through mob law, or in putting down l.i .v bv the' strong arm of power, would lose Irs liberties. , He did not believe it; but he confessed that if such doctrines as the senate had heard that day were to become popular the people would have to pause and consider, whether Ma caulay's prophecy were to be realized or not. He preferred to think, with Gambetta, that at such times all the libertv-loving people of the country would unite tin.l "are the govern ment, however much they 'might tight each other about politics. He denounced the tleprU i ig of men by Debs or anyone else of their ri.rht to sell their labor as the inauguration of a system of slavery never known in the past history of the republic; and as so utter abhorrent to every right of his us to make it impossible for him to treat, it with a y consideration whatever,- Antl he declared that the men who wore the gray from ISfil to is(i5 woukl be found side by' side with Ciose who wore the blue, following the same flag mid uphold ing tne dignity ot tne republic over winch it floated, and every law upon i;.; statute books.

The agitation of the silver tiuestion appears- to be practically over for the present session of congress.

By night men und horses bad become so exhausted that they could only move ut a slow walk to ans wer the most urgent call. There . were fre quent threats to burn the town of Pullman, and soldiers were sent out to guard the place. Every railroad station in the city is now in the hands of troops. 1 on Sunday there were many small demon strations by the strikers, but they had become pretty thoroughly cowed by the military force", and the day was much more quiet. Kv Kriilav it had evidentlv lieeuniethedutv of Uncle Sum to interfere and on the repre sentation of the post office department that the transmission 0f mails was being interfered with and of the officers of the United States courts that the orders of the courts against Interfering with the mails and interstate com merce were defied, the president ordered troops to the scene. This action was necessary because oov Altgeid with his auarcnist sym pathies was not doing his duty. Though the mob had accumulated about the raiwuy sta tions ami the stockyards, fov AltgeldJIook an optimistic view of the situation, H'iegraph ing President Cleveland that there was no occasion for tne use or federal troops, as tne militia was abundantly able to suppress any disorder. Hitherto he claimed there had been no violence; the cars were not obstructed by force but for want of men to otrate tnem As a precautionary measure. President Cleve land sent forward i.jtsi federal troops umier (ien lil. lieside the 5.oo National Guard. The Governor, nettled bv this movement of troops without his request, telegraphed again to the president asking for a Darter : but the president briefly replied that the exigency re quired action rather than words. The gov ernor tlien telegraphed a king argument iMiut state rights, to which the nreshient made this reply : While I am still persuaded that I have neither transcended mv authority or duty In the emer gencv that confronts us.

Sovereign, the General Master workman of the Knights of Labor ordered the whole of that order out Tuesday. He said, "Sincerely believing that the flames of discord are being purposely fanned bv the railway corporations at the risk of the life of the government, I take the liberty to appeal to you, and through vou to tbe conscience of the whole people, im ploring you to lay down the implements of toil for a short season aud under the banner of peat and with a patriotic tlesire to pro mote the welfare, use the power of your ag gregated numbers." He and his associates figured that this would call out 230,000 men and 750.000 more would be affected. Hut as a matter of fact the scheme proved a farce. Up. to yesterday not over 5,000 men at Chicago had obeyed the or der. Many of the lutior unions flatly refused to strike, among them the typographical union. Delis' order was disregarded wholly at Buffalo, Baltimore and Plnttsburg. The Missouri Pacific conductors joined the St. Louis switchmen and others in refusing to strike. "Stick to your engines," was the stern order that went" out from the headquar ters of the Brotherhood to every member tbropghout the west. There are 10,000 regulars and militia in Chi cago. Gen. Miles has baud let I the problem with both energy and discretion. He im prensed upon the'muyor during their talk the fact that the troops are there to protect the government buildings and to see that the in terstate commerce law is not violated. If it liecoines necessarv to call out the troops down town, the mayor has been given tounderstand that the trooiisareat bis disposal and await his orders to fire. The situation seemed threatening in Califor nia especially San Francisco and Sacramento for a while longer, because the militia behav ed shamefully, and the civil officials, from the governor" down, have done not much bet ter. Tbe governor skulled onhtide bis own capital on the fllinsv pretext that the strikers prevented him from reaching it. and where the striker had absolute control of the South ern Pacific and the whole system tied up, so that not an overload train arrived for eight davs. But, (ten Kuger' moved energetically with regular troops and the strikers sulwide.1 All tbe nenl-tiD fnrv of I our d'Ah-ne in Idaho has broken forth again. atur.lay night Wardner was in a state of terror and help lessness, and the bill surrounding the town were tilled with armed rioters.

The sugar men have discovered that thev mav lose the differential duty by a vote of fie or lib against five and still have no power left to defeat the biil except by stubbornly refusing to permit agreement on subsequent" amendments. The trust would be left with a beggarly handful of votes, and a simple revenue "duty would be imposed upon sugar. Tho friend's of some of the textile schedules are In a more fortunate position, for certain paragraphs passed bv the house were not changed in the senate and are not a subject of conference. The fact that the house has the situation to a large extent in its own hands is just begin ning to le understood bv liiauv members of both houses. The seutite conferees nre per sonally In favor cf the house bill, but thev are kieping faith with the conservative senators whom they promised to assist in kcepingtheir amendment in the bill. The one resource of the conservative senators in case of a report against tneir amendments will be to talk In definitely against its acceptance. They will have the assistance of the Kenublicans' in do ing this, mid the latter are developing into warm supporters of the senate bill. There is a tlesire, coupled with a strong hope on the part or tne Komocratic managers, that the points upon which the two houses disagree may lie settled speedily, aud that the bill may lie sent to the president for bis signature le fore the first ofjnext month, but the Repub licans say tnat this is impossible. The rep. resentatives of special interests arc already beginning to pourhack into the city, deter mined to bring all the pressure! thev can on the conference committee to keep the rates at tne maximum nxeu in the schedule. Both Chairman AVllson and Speaker Crisp have had repeated conferences with President Cleveland this week, and all three are as one in tbe determination to hlae the senate bill modified so as to make it as much like the w ilson bill as possible, Mr Cockrell has got as many appropriation bills in shape as possible, so that the senate can discuss tnem this week.

There was another battle ut Danville, III.. und Grape Creek. The militia fired into the mob and two women were killed and two fatally wounded. Two men were killed and five wounded in the Burea County (111.) coab fields, when a train bearing United States troops was attacked by anarchists. The president and secretary of war have received a large number of letters and tele grams from all parts of the country, tender ing the government the support "of larjre bodies of men in the event of an emergency.
