Very little disorder was noted at Chicago
yesterday. The presence of the troops and
the president's proclamation had , for the

J.uv Abiding Citizen * to Separate

' 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

ot the road has been resumed In full.
The- Chicago & Erie road officially reports
that Hammond was very quiet thl * morn

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
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
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
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.

with the president early this evening and
as a result the following was given out :
A proclamation by the president of the
United States :

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
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
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-
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
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

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.

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
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

campaign In the Interior of the state , and

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
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
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"
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
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

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
The Burlington continues to run trains
with regularity , even their freight trains
being sent out on schedule time. A tele

and all classes of freight would be accepted

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.

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.

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
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
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
"Therefore , " concluded Mr. Vrooman ,
"whatever may happen we will not walk
out or strike. "

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. After
this the crowd dispersed , and no further re
sistance being offered , the troops returned
to their train , which had been coupled In
front of the passenger , and the trip to Dan
ville was made without further Incident.

WASHINGTON , July 9. 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.

CHICAGO , July 9. John M. 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 ,
"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
"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

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-

to pay Interest. Wo are not responsible for

Tire Stores nt I.a ( hi , 111. , Looted anil the
LADD , 111. , July 9. Two stores were
looted at this , place this afternoon by a mob
of over 100 foreign miners. The city Is being
guarded tonight by fifty deputy sheriffs ,
farmers and miners. The national banks
have removed their valuables from the city
and many of the business houses have closed
temporarily. Reports from the surrounding
districts are to the effect that the anarchists
ot Peru , LiSalle and other towns are moving
towards Spring Valley for a midnight attack
on the place. The town Is now guarded by
two mll.tla companies and 125 deputies. One
hundred deputies from Princeton have been
ordered to Spring Valley and they will ar
rive during the night. Half the population
of Bureau county Is remaining up tonight In
the various towns , receiving the latest re
ports from the seat ot trouble. The great
est apprehens'on Is felt for the
safety of the men who have gone forward.
Ninety deputies are on guard at Seatonvllle
tonight. Everything Is quiet there , as It Is
thought a large part of the men have left
the place for Spring Valley. Home guards are
being organized at different points In this
vicinity. The citizens are In a great state
of excitement. At Tlskllwa two companies
of thirty men each have been organized.
Other towns having an organized force and
ready to move nt once are Maiden , Arlington ,
Walnut , Buda , Neponset. Depue , Bureau and
Laccyvllle. All last night and today scouts
on horseback have been out from each town
on the public highways watching all means
of approach to the various towns. The rioters
liave cut the telephone and telegraph wires
to such an extent that It Is difficult to get
news throughout the country from the
mining towns. Between Spring Valley and
Ladd and Laceyvllle , not only the wires
liavo been cut , but the poles as well , either
being pulled out or cut down.

A regular pitched battle was fought between
the negro coke workers and the town au

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

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
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.
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.
