NEGROES TAKING THE PLACE OF STRIKERS Vort Wnyno anil Lnko Shore ItontM Try nil Experiment Train of Cunl Drought ' In with the Asulntiinco of tlio Troops. While the storm about Chicago seems to i&avo spent Its force , or , at any rate , to have abated Its fury , Its effects are being mani fest In a dally widening circle , and the trouble that wan at first confined to a com paratively limited section of the country Is now almost national In It } scope. From the great lakes to the gulf and from one ocean to the other trains arc hindered In their movements by reason of the operations of the A. R. U. In pursuing the Pullman boy cott. Mr. Pullman has gone to "Castle Host , " his summer cottage In tha Thousand Islands , and says he has nothing to arbitrate. Very little disorder was noted at Chicago yesterday. The presence of the troops and the president's proclamation had , for the ( Imo at least , a quieting effect. It Is probable that every union man in Chicago , of all branches of Industry , will be called on to go ut today In sympathy with the railroad strikers. On the Union Pacific trains were moving nndor military control , mall and express get ting through without any trouble. U Is an nounced that freight will bo moved after today. Members of the Federated Board arc in Omaha to confer with Manager Dickinson today concerning the matters Involved In the trlke and tho'relnstatement of the men who -rent out and are willing to return. On the Northern Pacific trains were moved under military escort. President Cleveland has Issued another proclamation , similar In tone to the ono now governing Chicago , applying to the states of North Dakota , Montana , Idaho , Washing ton , Oregon. California , Colorado , Wyoming and the territory of Now Mexico. Miners In central Illinois arc on the war path again , and have had brushes with the troops , as well as serious conflicts with bcrlffs' posses. There was also a serious conflict at Scottdale , Pa. , where negroes . who took the place of strikers assaulted the strikers , and the local authorities tool ; a hand In U , and ono negro was shot and probably fatally wounded. Business has been partially resumed on the Banta Fe In California ; at St. Louis the roads are moving almost regularly ; In north ern Ohio the tie-up Is almost complete ; on the Big Four the A. R. U. men have gone out again , and similar reports are received from other places. Boston authorities are preparing for the trlke there. Secretary Chris Evans of the federation predicts a general strike. Tbero was no more shooting at Chicago. The general managers report that the total number of trains moved yesterday was equal to the total ot the four days preceding. rilOCI.AMATION FHO.1I MILKS. J.uv Abiding Citizen * to Separate Themselves from IM\Y Breakers. ' CHICAGO , July 9. The following order was Issued this afternoon by General Miles ; 'To All United States Troops Serving In the Department ot the Missouri : The acts of .violence committed during the past few days In the stopping ot mall trains and postroads , the blocking of Interstate com merce , the open defiance and violation of the Injunction ot the United .States court , the assaults upon the federal forces In the law ful discharge ot their duties , the destruction , pillage and looting of the Inland commerce property belonging to citizens of the dif ferent states , and other acts ot rebellion ai.d lawlessness have been ot such a serious character that the duties ot the military authorities are more clearly dellned by the president In his proclamation. The land and naval forces and the mllltla , when called upon , Is understood by the military to act In the Interest of humanity and to fcvold the useless waste of life , If possible. It Is well for all law abiding citizens to eparate themselves from the law breakers and those In actual hostility to the laws of the court and those of the government. Ho lias defined the attitude ot these lawbreakers to be enemies ot the government , and hence It Is the duty ot the military forces to aid the United Stutcs marshal to disperse , cap ture or destroy all bodies of men obstructing the mall routes , and In actual hostility tu the Injunction of the United States court and the laws of the United States. This does not change the relation ot the federal officers with the local , as U U expected the Btatc an * municipal governments will main tain pcaco and good order within the ter ritory of their jurisdiction. Should they fall or be overpowered , the military forces will assist them , but not tu the extent of leaving unprotected property' belonging to or under protection of the United States. The officer In the Immediate command of troops must bo the judge as to what use to make of the forces at his command In executing his orders In case serious action IMS required , and there be time , ho Will Cu.nmunlc.ite with his next superior for his Instructions. The earnest cftorts ot the law abiding eltUens liave done much to Improve the condition ot affairs during the last tow days , and 1 can earnestly request all law abiding citizens to do whatever possible to assist In main taining the civil government and the author ity of the municipal , state and federal gcv- rnments In preserving peace and K ' 0d rdcr. " President Egan of the General Managers association said this morning that every road In Chicago without exception was mov ing trains , and most ot them on time. Sev- fal freight trains , ho said , departed this morning. The general superintendent of the Illinois Central posted a notice on Sunday announc ing that all freight handlers who did not return to work by 10 o'clock this morning . would bo discharged. Enough returned tenable nable the road to resume Us freight busjs ness , and five freight trains had been ; jsSm out up to 12 o'clock today. About .one- third of the firemen who had struck l.uve returned to work. The passenger service ot the road has been resumed In full. The- Chicago & Erie road officially reports that Hammond was very quiet thl * morn ing. An Erie train went through the town at 6:30 : a. m. without trouble , and the Indi cations were for a peaceful day , LITTLE INTERFERENCE WITH MAILS. Tha postal authorities say there Is less In terference with the malls today than en any flay since the strike began. The tire department reports that the total amount of damage done to railway property by flro during the past forty-eight hours omouiU to $1.500,000. President Debs , "Address to the Public , " Issued several days ago , was today being distributed In pamphlet form to the work- Ingmcn of this city. A report was received at Uhllch's hall at 11:30 : this morning by the officials of the A. R. U. that the Illinois Central firemen had gone out. Fort Wayne and Lake Shore officers are trying to replace the strikers with negroes. The appearance ot the blacks this morning called forth Jeers , but no violence. This afternoon the Baltimore & Ohio road , under escort of the United States troops , brought In a heavy train loaded with coal for the city water works. U Is said that had It failed to get here the works would have been compelled to shut down. An Immense labor meeting has been called to meet at the corner of Forty-eighth and Paulina streets , which Is In the stock yards district. Mayor Hopkins was Informed that this meeting would be held In spite of his orders preventing a congregation ot the people. This order has caused great excite ment among the labor element of that vi cinity , and they will hold the meeting , mayor or no mayor. NO BUSINESS AT THE STOCK YARDS. The stock yards and packing house offi cials went Into consultation early today to arrange for sufficient protection to run stock trains In and out ot the yards. The receipts today were eleven ehcep and lambs and twenty-two cattle. The yards were quiet this morning , but It waa generally felt that the crisis was near. Little work was done In the yards today. John B. Sherman an nounced that no attempt would be made for a few days to resume work. Armour & Co. sent out 100.000 pounds ot. dressed beef be fore daylight this morning to the city mar kets. It was shipped In wagons guarded by yard employes. The commission men have organized for the defense of property Inside their yards , and protection outside will bo delegated to special police officers. ARRESTED FOR BURNING CARS. Six freight cars were burned this morning before daylight on the Illinois Central tracks at Burnsldes. Ed Hogan , John Coleran , John Grady , Ben Leenan and Robert Blair were found , at the fire and were arrested on "sus picion , of being firebugs. They were taken to Kensington police station. They were flned $20 by Justice Bobbins. Wabash trains were delayed In reaching the city today and finally came In on the Fort Wayne tracks. The detour Was neces sary because a. bridge at Clark station had been burned during the night. The bridge was a small affair , but Us destruction blocked the road. Rioters are supposed to have llrcd the trestle during the night. Its destruction was discovered before any trains T.'erc due , and the danger of an accident was averted. FIRED WITHOUT WOUNDING. At an early hour this morning some boys and Idle men who gathered at the Forty- ninth street crossing of the Grand Trunk road threw stones at a squad of state mlll tla stationed at that point , The latter first made a charge upon the mob and then , on a renewal of the stone throwing , fired n vol ley Into the crowd. Tha crowd escaped Into the adjoining houses and It was not learned whether any one was hurt. Early this morning the stock yards police had another encounter with rioters. Several shots were fired , but hobody Injured. The trouble occurred at Forty-ninth and Emer ald. A packing firm attempted , to move some dressed beef. The strikers discovered this and tried to Intimidate the teamsters. The police were called and the crowd re sisted efforts to disperse them. The police then fired a volley over the heads of the strikers , which caused them to disperse. Six ot them were arrested charged with riot ing. ing.There There were fifty men who attempted to .stop the wagons. Tlie wagons were sent out In a body early with the hope of outwitting nny marauders. The teams started east on Thirty-ninth street nnd were unmolested un- nl-.they reached Union avenue , where a gang of ' fifty emerged from behind houses and sheds , grasped the bridles of the teams and attempted to put the drivers oft their seats. The police authorities had heard of the pre meditated attack and had stationed a police man at every corner along the route. When the alarm was sounded the police came to the aid of the drivers and their assailants were driven oft after a severe clubbing. ANOTHKU PROCLAMATION. KImlllnr to the Chicago One , Except It la Directed to Westerner * . WASHINGTON , July 9. The attorney gen eral , Secretary Lament , Secretary Blssell and General Schofield were again In conference with the president early this evening and as a result the following was given out : A proclamation by the president of the United States : Whereas , By reason of unlawful obstruc tions , combinations and assemblages by per sons , It has become Impracticable In the judgment of the president to enforce , by the ordinary course of judicial proceedings the laws of the United States at certain points and places within the states of North Da kota , Montana , Idaho , Washington , Wyom ing , Colorado and California , and the terri tories of Utah and New Mexico , and espe cially along the lines ot such railroads traversing these states , and as the railways are military roads and post routes and are engaged In Interstate commerce and In car rying United States malls , and Whereas , For the purpose ot enforcing the faithful execution of the laws of the United States 'and protecting property belonging to the United States or under Us protection. and of preventing obstructions ot the United States malls and ot commerce between the states and territories , and of securing to the United States the right guaranteed by law to the use of such roads for postal , mil itary , naval and other government service , the president has employed a part of the military forces ot the United States ; now , therefore , I , GVaver Cleveland , president of the United States , do hereby command all per sons engaged In or In any way connected with such unlawful obstructions , combinations and assemblages , to disperse and retire peaceably to their respective abodes on or before 4 o'clock ot the afternoon of the 10th day of July.

Uvcry Thri-utHMliiu 1'olnt on Unlou 1'aclllu HIM Its Solillvri. Up to " o'clock yesterday afternoon General Brooke had received reports from every point along the Union Pacific to which lie had dispatched troops but one. These reports from the commandants ot the several posts showed without exception that no trouble was anticipated and that the strikers and their attaches , the members of the mob , were quiet and Inoffensive In the presence of the military forces ot the United States. The disposition ot the troops along the line ot the Union Pacific hts Dually been settled and Is as follows : Captain Hadcn of the Eighth Infantry Is located at Laramle with t'two companies , Lieutenant Hubert Is com manding two companies of the Eighth Infan try at Rawllns. at Green Hlver Captain Wll- h lm commands two companies ot the Eighth Infantry. At Hock Springs , or Camp Pilot Butle , the garrison before the strike com menced consisted ot but one company of the Seventh Infantry , The garrison his ben reinforced by two companies of the Seventeenth Infantry , and will bi further strengthened by one company of the Eighth from Fort Washeka , and the entire force there will be under command ot Lieutenant Colonel Brady uf the Seventeenth Infantry. The situation at Rock Springs looked upon by the department as a little the mcit serious , and for this reason a larger force U maintained there. At Pocatcllo , on the Oregon Short Line , two companies of the Seventeenth .Infantry under command of Major Blsby have been stationed. It Is be lieved that this force will bo sufficient. Ogden It another weak point , and Captain Palmer ot the Sixteenth Infantry , with ilx companies , has arrived there. This completes the details of troops from the Department ot the Platte up to the present time. The four troops of the Sixth cavalry sent from Fort Nlobrara to Chicago arrived at that city yesterday under command of Colonel Brady. CHICAGO'S CONDITION AT SUNDOWN. All Itoad * Appear to Ho In Hotter Slmpe Tlinn Yc tertl y. CHICAGO , July 9. Peace reigns In War saw. The same cannot bo said of Chicago , for the tread of armed men Is still heard In her streets and the wheels of commerce still lag at the bid of the American Railway union. Nevertheless the war cloud which has overhung this city and this land for the past ten days shows distinct signs of lift- Inc. Instead ot stories of Additional rail roads being tied up at different points through the country , today's dispatches al most without exception bring advices of strikers returning to work , and an Increased resumption of traffic , amounting In some places to a return to normal conditions. The day In Chicago has .passed without a serious conflict between the rioters and the armed forces now on duty here. The fea ture of the day has been the action early this morning , after an all night session of the federated trades unions of Chicago , In deciding to call out all classes of labor on Tuesday at 4 o'clock unless George M. Pull man should have agreed before the meridian of that day to settle the differences between his company and his striking employes by arbitration or otherwise. For reasons not known to the public , Grand Master Workman Sovereign of the Knights of Labor and his advisers subsequently decided to postpone the" general walkout and a paralytic stroke which they propose to Inflict upon the busi ness of Chicago until 7 o'clock Wednesday afornlng. Late this afternoon the announce ment was made that President Samuel Gom- pers of the American Federation of Labor has called a meeting of the executive board of that body to be held In this city Thurs day , and that he would leave New York for Chicago tomorrow evening. In view of this It Is not believed that the federated trades of Chicago will take precipitate action before that time. Presi dent Gompers cannot reach Chicago before Wednesday night , and It will be Impossible to decide on a line of action to be pursued before Thursday , and probably , If It should finally be resolved to declare a general strike of all these combined forces , It could not be put Into effect before Friday morning. In this connection the Interesting question arises whether or not. If President Gompers allows himself to be hauled from New York to Chicago by nonunion engineers nnd fire men , his visit will be of any particular profit. One leader In Chicago said today that If he did so he might as well stay In New York. Another feature to be noted In con nectlon with federated labor Is the fact which was developed that there was In the meeting a large and Influential conservative clement whose action had practlclly blocked the plans of the more hot-headed leaders until the latter. In the excitement consequent quent upon the reading of President Cleve land's proclamation , were enabled to stam pede them and carry the strike resolution. Therefore , there Is reason to believe- that oven if the order for a general strike goes forth many of those to whom It Is directed will decline to obey it. So that with the men already made Idle by the effect of the tie-up the walkout will not be nearly so Important as anticipated by the leaders. What effect , If any , the action of Vice Presi dent Wlckes of the Pullman company this afternoon In refusing In the most positive manner to even meet a committee to con sider the question of arbitration will have upon the final decision of labor leaders and the followers remains to be seen. BUSINESS MEN ENDORSE CLEVELAND. Tonight's action of the city council In re spect to President Cleveland's order bring ing federal troops to Chicago was fore stalled by a large number of endorsements of his action sent him by prominent busi ness men of the city. The list of signatures Included those of almost every conspicuous merchant , manufacturer and banker of Chl- caco. Touching the situation In general , It maybe bo said that In Chicago the roads were all doing better than on any previous day since the strike began. Passenger trains were moving with more or less regularity and some freight traffic has been cared for. A large number of striking freight handlers Of the Illinois Central returned to work , and other roads noted accession to their opera tive 'orces. At St. Louis , Kansas City and Denver It was reported that railroad business had about returned to normal conditions. Nash ville also reported an Improvement. About the only points at which the strike mana- cers showed any gain were In the partial walkout of firemen at Fort Scott , the freight men on the Kanawha road at Charleston , W. Va. , and the strike of the A. R. U. men on the Big Four at Mattoon. U will thus bo seen that at the leading railroad centers the strikers have made perceptible losses whtlo their gains are at comparatively un important points. Regulations which pre vailed in the government building today were a near approach to martial law. Dep uty marshals were stationed on every floor and everybody was challenged who could not show that ho had business In the build- Ins. Tomorrow's sunrlso will see In this city 1,000 more federal troops than were hero this mornlne. These , with the forces al ready In the field , It Is believed , will be able tomorrow to make a further betterment In the conditions In this city , and the mobil ization ot troops and marines at San Fran cisco and of regulars at other points on the Pacific coast will suffice , In all probabil ity , to start traffic on the transcontinental Hoes tomorrow. HANDLING riUtHT : : AT ST. LOUIS. Mnny Striker * Kctiini to Work nnd Trains Movlni ; Quito 1'rcely. ST. LOUIS , July 9. The strike situation among the railroads here today Is In line with the Improvement noted yesterdiy. On the west side of the river every road ? nd yard has practically a full complement of men and the handling of cars on shippers' private switches has been resunud. The passenger service Is also on a normal basis " except"for tha few duplicate trains not now running for lack ot business. On llio east side decidedly larger forces of yard and switchmen are at work and the returns of strikers to work are Increasing In mmbjr. On that side all freight offered Is being handled. The exceptions to the rule there are the Louisville & Nashville and Mobile & Ohio , which have difficulties with their road crews , which , however , are In a fair way for adjustment. WILL riHUT Till : TUOOPS. Preparations Helm ; .Miido for n Iluttlo by California striken ) . SAN FRANCISCO , July 9. The strikers have temporarily retired from the depot and are massed at their headquarters await ing orders from Labor Leader Knox. In an ticipation of regular troops being called out , a number of the Sacramento strikers have be in sent to Stockton to blockade the road and also to warn the men of the approach of the soldiers. It Is their Intention to seize a train and blockade the road so It will be some time before the troops will be able to proceed to the city. In the meantime the strikers at Sacramento will have be n warned of ( he advance of the regulars and a con certed effort will then be made to resist the troops. The strikers are armed with Winchesters and an attempt of the military to dislodge them will most certainly result In bloodshed. At West Oakland the A. R. U. had Us picket lines extended clear out Into the bay last night. Three boats were tent out In different directions awaiting the expected ap pearance ot the regular troop * beaded from the Presidio In tl''s direction. The tip was quietly given out thnt fuderal soldiers would land some tlma after nildalKht , but they did not appear. The leaders of .he strike ray that If the troops land 'they will be allowed to move mall trains with no Interference , but that the troops * lljnot bo able to con duct any other business. ' It Is still announced at headquarters that the blockade will be maintained at all hazards. General Rugcr summoned back from San Gruze Lieutenant Colonel Younics and troops J and K of the Fourth United States cav alry. They have been on a four months' campaign In the Interior of the state , and were hastily recalled , arriving at the Pres idio today. They .number 200 men. Twenty thousand pounds of ammunition have been Issued for the troops at the Presidio and Black Point. . Hotchklss and Galling guns are alt In readiness for transportation. Troops can be ready to march out of the Presidio In twenty minutes otter the com mand from the department headquarters Is given. HAS HAISUH Tilt : Ht.OCKVDK. Oeneral Ilrooko Opens the Union 1'aelflc nnd Trulm Are Jlmming. General Brooke as an operator of railroad properties Is having considerable success In his new field , the presence of troops at Laramle , Rawllns , Rock Springs , Green River , Evanston , Ogden and Pocatello , di vision points on the Union Pacific , acting as a deterrent to the mobs which have threatened the destruction ot Union Pacific property. Sunday night fears were entertained that the mob might commence firing cars In the Ogden yards , and the presence of six com panies of Infantry hastily mobilized at that point proved an object lesson to the crowds of Idlers , and nothing resulted but loud and Incendiary talk. Yesterday , although 'the Ogden yards were cramped with cars , freight as well as passenger , the Union Pacific officials man aged to get No. 2 out with full equipment eastbound. The train has a lot of mall on board , and any attempt made to stop No. 2 will be the signal for beginning the war on the Union Pacific. Everything was reported quiet at nil other points on the system yesterday , although the Idle miners nt Reck Springs have been riotously Inclined since Thurs day of last week , but the presence ot the military has done wdnders toward allaying the strike feeling. It Is not the Intention of General Brooke to place regular troops on trains , but , rather , to keep them at division points , where their presence will act as conservers of the peace. Freight resumption will probably bo In augurated today on 'the Union Pacific If present conditions obtain , and It Is the gen eral belief about headquarters that so far as the strike Is concerned on tne Union Pacific Wednesday will show complete restoration of .he service. "Some difficulty maybe experienced with the machinists , " said "an official , "but I have great faith In the Integrity of our men , and I don't belfeve the Knights of Labor will go out even at the call of Mr. Sovereign and the local division officers. I believe our men wll do the right thing at the right time and any other view of the situation would seem to mo to be prepos terous" Some little expression of discontent was heard yesterday about the union yards over the action of the Federated Board which met In Cheyenne last week , some of the men going so far , as to Intimate that the members of the1 , board had received money from railroad officials , but the rank and file of the employes were pronounced In sympathy "with the' resolutions adopted at Cheyenne , and thought the men were actuated by the hlghestraotlvcs , In. view of their promises to Judges Caldwcll " "aria" Rlner. i No fear Is entertained by the Union Pa cific officials that the machinists in the west will go out , notwithstanding the utterances ot P. J. Conlln. of district No. 1 , Kansas City. They are sanguine , on the contrary , that the action of the Federated Board rep resents the majority of the employes , and upon , that basis they will endeavor to lift the blockade and start freight trains both west and east today. . Troops from Fort Nlobrara are stationed at Laramle , Rawllns , Green River and Evanston. and with each company arc two deputy United States marshals to serve processes. Assistant Superintendent Harry Fox of the Rock Island stated that the blockade was about lifted on his line and that an east and westbound local freight would be sent yes terday. No. 1 arrived on time , and No. 4 went out at 10:15. : No. 2 was sent forward. General Agent Nash of the Milwaukee an nounces that his road has commenced re ceiving freight at the Chicago freight house , and he had Instructions to take freight for St. Paul , Minneapolis. Sioux City , In fact all points except Chicago proper. Eastern points are also Included In the Instructions , freight being given eastern lines via the Elgin , Jollet & Eastern , known as the "Outer Belt Line. " Passenger trains on the Milwaukee are leaving and arriving with regularity. "The Northwestern.1 said General Agent Ritchie , "has been taking all classes of freight for all points .with the exception of the Union stock yards , Chicago , and no road can get In there at this time. Trains are running regularly , and : we hope shortly to bill goods without the saving clause 'subject to delay.1 " While other roads have commenced to see light ahead the Missouri Pacific people are fearful still as to the outcome of the strike , and they continue to refuse packing house product , although they brought In twenty car loads of merchandise yesterday. The Knights of Labor are particularly strong on the Gould system , and should a general order come for this branch of labor to go out U would seriously Interfere with the operation of the system. While the blockade Is practi cally lifted at St. Louis' , officials of the Mis souri Pacific are declining freight for all southeastern points , particularly packing house product. The Burlington continues to run trains with regularity , even their freight trains being sent out on schedule time. A tele gram received from Mr. Harris yesterday stated the road was In excellent condition , and all classes of freight would be accepted except for far western points and Chicago proper. Everything was quiet at the Webster street yards yesterday , the Omaha trains being on time , and a special freight being sent out at 1 o'clock. A telegram received ] by H. S. Dlnklns , commercial agent of thq Santa Fe at Omaha , announces that his road will take all classes of freight , perishable as well as live stock for all points on the Byitom with the single exception ot the union stock yards , Chicago. LOCAL LAUOlt FUKLINO. Milan Meeting till * , ' Kvtnliin Kxpectcil to Determine Ifuluro Action. None of the local labor leaders pretend to predict what action will be taken In Omaha since the unlonj and assemblies In Chicago have all decided to quit work Wednesday mornlnc unless the trouble Is submitted to arbitration.The meeting to be held this evening at Jefferson square will most likely develop a sentiment ono way or the other , but no ono can tell at this time what action will bo taken. There are a number of Idle men In the city now , anil as a rule , they are In favor of striking without further ceremony , and'the effect of their presence at labor meetings tends to develop a strike feeing : which extend ! to those who are employed. Besides there are any num ber who think that to quit wtirk for a few days would hare the effect of compelling the government to talc * some action In favor of the pcoplt. So far. everything has remained very quiet Ir local labor circles , as the most of the leaders arc level headed men who do cot believe In acting hastily , but the.feeling Is spreading rapidly that the strike of tha A. It. U. Is thecause of ell working people , for the reason that It It thought If the wen are beaten U will be a death blow to all organized labor. This feeling has' grown rapidly the past twenty-four hours In Omaha , and It Is having the effect of getting the sympathy ot several labor leaders who heretofore took very l > tth notice ot the sir ko , It k general meetttc ut the officers of the labor organizations Is called , na Is now being agitated , they will no doubt sub mit the itriko question to a vote of the various unions and assemblies. TO IIILP : TIII : KICIIVIUS. : : Federated Honril OmdnU to Confer With Ulcklnnon With Till * Hint In Vlow. George W. Vrooman , chairman of the grievance committee of the Brotherhood ot Locomotive Engineers ; C. D. Clark , presi dent ot the Brotherhood ot Railway Train men ; J. N. Corbln , general secretary of the Union Pacific Employes' association and secretary of district assembly No. 82 , Knights of Labor ; C. A. M , Pctrlc , chair man ot the Brotherhood of Locomotive- Firemen ; F. E. Gllllland , chairman of tha Federated board and of the Order of Railway Telegraphers , and J. L. Klsslck , chairman of the Order of Railway Conductors , arrived In the city last evening and have an ap pointment to hold a conference with General Manager Dickinson of the Union Pacific this forenoon , as representatives of the Federated board. They would not stuto the object of the conference In detail , but said that they were anxious to have an end of all trouble on the Union Pacific system , nnd the con ference would be In futhcranco of that end. It would bo their object to assist the re ceivers and manager In restoring complete harmony and regular traffic. This was as specific a statement as they would make. It Is not Improbable , however , that one of their objects Is to facilitate the return to employment of members of the organiza tions which they represent who have joined In the strike , and It Is understood that they hold that many of these forsook their posts on account of Intimidation. Their present position Is considered an being of disad vantage to the general strike Inaugurated by Mr. Debs , and It Is stated by the latter's sympathizers that they now design to more closely ally themselves with "the enemy" In an effort to nullify any pressure that may be brought to bear by the American Railway union or Its supporters on the Union Pacific system. Speaking for his official associates. Mr. Vrooman said .that while he would like to see Pullman ground down to dust he did not approve of the method which Debs was pursuing. He did not believe that In the fight parties should be made to suffer who were not directly In Interest. Ho believed that In no event would any more men go out on the Union Pacific than are now out , and that a call from Sovereign for the Knights of Labor to walk out would have no effect. Mr. Vrooman called attention to what ho said was the unique position at this time of the organizations comprising the Feder ated board on the Overland system. Unllko their brethren on the Santa Fe or the Northern Pacific , they had been In court. There they had received more than they had asked for and had come to an agree ment with the court. If now they had grievances , which they had not , they would not seek for a settlement In the ordinary way , but would apply to the court for re- llet on Its promise already made that they would have a fair hearing and be dealt with justly. "Therefore , " concluded Mr. Vrooman , "whatever may happen we will not walk out or strike. " TIIKKK KILLKI ) HYO'IIH MILITIA. I'lrctl Over the Heads of Itlotlnp : Miners and Killed Three Spectators. DANVILLE , 111. , July 9. Mrs. Michael Glennan and Miss Clara James were killed and an unknown man mortally wounded at Westvlllo this afternoon by a volley fired over the heads of a crowd of rioting miners .by a company of mllltla. . .The mlneruPnad- been rioting In thtp vicinity since yesterday afternoon. During last nlglit a number of freight cars were destroyed In the Eastern Illinois yards by Incendiary fires. This forenoon a number of cars were derailed at Grape Creek on the Shelbyvllle branch. When the wreckage had been cleared the Inbound passenger train proceeded without molestation until Wcstvllle was reached. When It stopped there It was surrounded by a crowd of miners and held. Word was tel egraphed to Danville and a special train with a company of state troops started at once for the scene of trouble. About one mile from Westvllle a large crowd of miners had collected , and upon the approach of the train bearing the mllltla began warlike demonstrations. Several pistol shots were fired at the soldiers , who returned the fire , shooting over the heads of the mob from the train , Intending to scare them. Miss Clara James , the 17-year-old daughter of Jonas Jamet , was standing In the doorway of her home. A bullet struck her just bslow the right breast end she died almost Instantly. Mrs. Michael Glennan , a widow , standing In her own yard , was also struck and died In flve minutes. An unknown man received a mortal wound and will die before morning. The mllltla then left the train and charged the crowd , securing three prisoners.

The statement Is telegraphed here from California that the strikers are about to apply to the United States courts to compel the Southern Pacific Railway company to show cause why they should not bo compelled to operate thc.i road under the terms of their charter. Thl& was not disagreeable news to the War de partment , and they rather hoped that tuch a step would be taken , for It would oblige the railroad company to supplement the ef forts of the military by every Means In their power , and there Is a suspicion that It has been a little lax In this respect so far. Sen ators Dubols and Shoup of Idaho called at the white house tfils morning to lay before the president Governor McConnel'B mo-sago urging the president to send troops to Wal lace , Idaho , to restore order. The senators were In conference with the president for some time , but apparently the governor's statement was not entirely satisfactory In demonstrating that the conditions are tuch as to warrant sending troops to Wallace , for no orders to that end have been Issued.

Egan of the Asosclatlon of Railway General Managers , when asked tonight by the Associated press for an official statement of the condition ot the roads represented In that association , said : "With the exception of two or thrco minor Instances , there has been no trouble or dis turbance repeated today. All the lines have run their regular passenger and mall trains and a number of lines resumed their sub urban trains. All of the lines commenced work In their freight yards and many freight trains were run In and out of the city. The Union Stock Yards company Is clearing Its tracks ot wreckage and repairing damage done during the past week. They expect to commence operations tomorrow ( Tuesday ) morning. The total number of trains that arrived today was equal to the total moved In the past four diys. It Is true that trains have been guarded to prevent their being mo lested , but the action ot the military to wards the mobs and rioters during the past two days have had a most salutary effect. The president's proclamation , together with General Miles' orders , have produced excel lent results. All the lines of railway expect to show far better results tomorrow. The men who have replaced the strlkars are good men and satisfactory to the lines that hava employed them. JOHN M. EGAN. " President E. V. Debs of .the A. R. U. when seen by an Associated" press reporter said : "Wo are stronger than ever ; nothing can break our forces but usurpation and tyranny- I am threatened with nr'rest. What for ? For organizing labor. Wo say to capital , 'Here Is our labor and these lire our terms. ' This Is legal this Is the spirit of the ago. Mr Ilavemeyor organizes a sugar trust nnd says to the public , 'Hero Is my sugar and these are my terms. ' Ho has polluted the national legislature. I have acted honorably and committed no crime. The United States authorities are bringing themselves Into contempt by their wanton violation of law and the constitution. The common people ple are beginning 'to understand this. Capital insists upon looking upon labor as It did upon slavery , that It has no right , like capital , to ask or exact terms. This Is the principle of slavery. I want to call the attention of the people of tills country to this. The Pullman strike , while acute , Is not the underlying cause of this trouble. The people of this country arc paying over $5,000,000 n dr.y In interest. This Is draining productive In dustry of Its profit nnd Is plllns up money In the money centers. What old England failed to do with soldiers In the Eighteenth century she Is doing now with the cold t-Und- ard. Over $200,000.000 each year goes there to pay Interest. Wo are not responsible for the lawless element and leas of property. Not e.von < dlscipllncdjjarmles liavqlever ! < been able to' help uils"1 > lifmcntfrom rising.

A regular pitched battle was fought between the negro coke workers and the town au thorities and one negro Is fatally shot and w.ll die before morning. This afternoon the negroes came Into town and made for the Painter coke plant , which they attacked with stones and club' . Six Hungarians were found near the plant and badly beaten and a rush was then made for Scottdale , the maddened negroes entering town , each armed with clubs and revolvers. A fight was soon raised between the negroes and the police authorities. The colored men became frantic and In a few seconds resolved themselves Into a mob and commenced ihootlng. The ofllcera called upon the citizens for help and a rush was made for them , when tlioy all took to their heels and ran nut of town. They were followed by 300 or100 citizens , who gave them a close pursuit In the face of volley after volley of shots from revolvers In the hands of the negroes. When 200 yards out of town ono negro fell , shot In the head , while the others made their e-cape. Word has been received from the pumping plant that negroes are arming themselves with- Winchester rifles and will return to rescue their comrade taken In charge by the police. The Sons of Veterans' head quarters have been looted ot Its guns nnd every firearm to be found has been brought Into requisition.

OVERWHELMING VOTE FAVORS STRIKING KiBhty-Sovoii Organization ! llcprcicutcd I the Conference l'ri > i"'etn Ihut th Walkout .May Ito General All Over the Country. CHICAGO , July 9. Hinged upon th remote - mete contingency that Gcorgo M. Pullman will , \vltlilu the next , twenty-four hours agree to submit to arbitration , or otherwise settle the inferences existing between the Pullman company anil Its ex-employes. Is the question whether or not the next twenty-tour hours will witness a cessation of all labor on tli part of the allied trades , not only In Chicago cage , but through the country. Probably never beforeIn the history of this country was n meeting of organized labor called to gether that was fraught with more Im portance than that which met at Uhltoh's hall lust evening. That all was not harmon ious , notwithstanding fiery speeches by Messrs. Sovereign of the Knights of Labor , Debs of the A. H. U. , and other labor leaders , Is evidenced by the fact that It was 4 o'clock this. morning when the convention finished balloting on the proposition. The question was decided In the affirmative , by an overwhelming vote , however , and the ultimatum propounded that If Pullman doe * not reach a definite understanding with his late employes before noon Tuesday , the allied trades unions of Chicago will open the ball at 7 a. m. Wednesday by walking out In a body. C KMillTTEB TO URGE ARBITRATION. The conference occupied the whole night , A committee of seven was appointed to wait on "Mayor Hopkins to endeavor to have him make a last effort to bring about arbitration. The committee Is comprised of J. W. Hastle , T. J. Eldcrkln. B. J. LIndholm , J. J. Ryan. James Currle , A. Cattermul and Thomas I. Kldd. Shortly before 3 a. m. a motion was made providing that George M. Pullman bo given until 4 o'clock this afternoon to decide whether he would submit the differences be ; tween the company and UHJ former employes to arbitration. If he refused to comply with tlQu.dematidthpn the strike wna to be con- stdere'd * on7 ' Some "of" the delegates wanted to leave the matter undecided and take the" final action after Mr. Pullman and the rail road managers had declined to arbitrate. Earnest speeches were made on both sides of the question , but It was voted down on a viva voce vote. A motion was then made to call out every union at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning unless some adjstmcnt could be made with Pullman , and on call this was adopted. It Is under stood that this move Is much less Important than was at first supposed. LIST OP TRADES AFFECTED.
