All Knights of Ijibor asacrntjllcs In Chi-

the recent labor conference , all members be

President Debs said today that the Indus
tries of Chicago would bo completely tied up
bo tomorrow morning. Mr. Debs made this
statement *
"This trouble has Rene beyond my control
completely and beyond the control of the
railway union. It Is posslblo that the com-
mlllco that neck * to settle the trouble by
arbitration may bo able to do something beFore -
Fore night , but I am very much In doubt
about It. It certainly looks as If a gigantic
Btrlko were Biiro to come.
"So far as the cause of the A. II .U. Is
concerned , things look brighter than ever.
The strike Is still on , and there Is now no
violence. That Is what wo have most to fear ,
the dcstructlveneSH of mobs who are not
connected with our trouble. With so many
companies of mllltla here , though , there will
not bo much violence. The greater strike Is
practically sure to come now , but I hope It
Will bo conducted peaceably and quietly. "
Thomas Kldd , secretary of the Interna
tional Woodworkers' union , and tcveral mem
bers of the arbitration committee appointed
yesterday , had a conference today with Vice
J'resldent Howard and Director Hogan of the
American Hallway union. At the close of
the conference one of the committee said
there was absolutely no avenue through
which arbitration might bo secured. The
strike of the labor unions was now a cer
tainty. Their representative were taking
measures to tccuro Its success.
The plan of the loaders for tomorrow Is
to call out first all organized labor In Chicago
cage and then to proceed from town to
town until the entire country Is paralyzed
or Pullman gives In. The Immediate effect
on Chicago , If all trades obey the strike ,
will throw 150,000 men out of employment
The Chicago Seamen's union has decided
that should the railroad troubles not be set-
nnd before Wednesday , that the sailors would
go out on a sympathetic strike. This will
llo up all the sail craft In the harbor.
Four assemblies of the Iron Molders' union
have struck , 2.GOO men going out. The clgar-
mnkcrs union , -1,000 strong , has voted to
ptrlko. None of these bodies have any griev
ance , but have decided to Btrlko solely be

jnAn Sovereign's call for the mcmebrs of his
organization to go out will affect 5,000 em

Nearly 5,000 people jammed themselves In
to the tpaco bounded by Jefferson square on
one sldo and Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets
last night to listen to what George M. Pull-
-ian would probably denounce as an "Incen
diary" speech. The meeting had been an-
nouiiced as a rally of local populists to listen
to a 'discussion of the political Issues of the
day. The speaker of the evening , Ilov.
George Muller of Illinois , changed the char-
nctor of the meeting from a political gather
ing to a strike propaganda. Ho discussed the
Btrlko In Its various phases , leaving politics
nlono. Ills powerfully drawn pictures of the
distress of the laboring men , the exactions
of Pullman and the greed of the railroad and
corporation managers caught the sympathies
of the crowd and every blow ho delivered
was applauded by cheers. In the judgment
of many conservative men present the prob
ability of a strike among all union men In
Omaha was greatly enhanced by the speeches
delivered last evening. Men lukeWarni In

The speaker of the evening wan Introduced
by Oeorgo Magney. Hev. George Mullcr began -
gan by saying that he had Intended to speak
upon the politics of labor , but that owing to
the Impending crisis he would talk of the
strike. Ho laid down the general proposi
tion that all strikes were the Inevitable ? re *
suit of the Inordinate greed and uncontrolled
selfishness of men and the purpose of these
willing to take advantage of circumstances
nnd conditions was to extort from men under
dlro necessity as largo a portion ns posslblo
of the profits of their labor , and , when they
can do BO , to leave to the producer the
smallest portion of their product that will
enable the latter to sustain llfo nnd so bo
enabled to continue production to enrich
their masters. This , together with the prin
ciple that labor hai no rights that capital Is
bound to respect , had caused moat of the
great strlkei of modern times. This was the
cause of the Pullman strike. Pullman was
n man who possessed special opportunities
for placing the general public under tribute.
He qxactcd from hfs patrons the most ex-
tortlonato rates , and carried on his buslneii
with the most high-handed methods. He
pursued the name policy with his employes.
From an actual Investment of something
IIko $10,000.000 the Pullman company was
capitalized to the extent of $30,000,000 , and
had n surplus of $18,000,000. And yet , at
the very t'me that the Pullman employes
were preparing their grievances for tub-
mission to the company the Pullman di
rectors were preparing to declare a dividend.
Almost on the very day that the employes
were denied living wages the Pullman stock
holders divided among themselves a divi
dend amounting to $600,000 ,
The speaker then rapidly sketched the
history of the present strike. Ho declared
that Webs did not dictate the boycott , but
that the boycott wai declared by over 400
delegates , and that the vote In Its favor was
unanimous. The boycott Was not the result
of dictation , but the declaration of n body
representing the dignity of American labor.
Pullman Incited the controversy , but he did
not stop to think of the general public , of the
1,000,000 employes of the railroad companies ,
of the various brotherhoods , ( and hero the
speaker denounced the Urotherhood of Lo
comotive Engineers no an aristocratic organ
ization ) , and of the possibility of embroiling
the American people In the dlfllculty. The
Pullmans nnd the railroads thought of none
of these things , but they organized the first
sympathetic strike by deciding to uphold
Ouko Pullman. They made the contest a
strike of the board of railway managers
against the employes for the benefit of that
"prince of tyrants , George M. Pullman. "
How did they dare do this ? Uecauso they
believed they would be able to do as they
always have been able to do to keep labor
divided , aml lo use the bludgeon of one or
ganization to beat out the brains of other or
ganizations. They could not do that this time ,
in splto of the subserviency of some of the
so-called labor leaders , who were at present
not very far from the city of Omaha , hob
nobbing with railroad managers. These
tools of the railroads , who were disgracing
themselves by their relations with the rail
road managers , would continue to do so as
Ions as they had Iron rings In their noses
with strings attached , which the corporations
could twitch whenever they cared to do so.
The speaker then turned his attention to
the government and made the air resound
with cheers from his auditors by his stric
tures upon the present administration and
the United States courts Ho said the rail
roads were not disappointed In the govern
ment , for when the occasion arose the exec
utive and the Judicial branches of the admin
istration. In their Infinite and Immeasurable
wisdom , evolved the principle that Pullman
cars were a necessary and essential part
or the mull service of the United States , and
In the attempt to carry out this principle
the courts had Issued Injunctions more far-
reaching than any ever Issued by any court
In any country. These Injunctions were more
all-embracing , more absolute and more
tyrannical than even the courts of Russia
would allow. And on what right , on what
law did the courts case these Injunctions ?
On the Interstate commerce law. a law that
had been riddled and torn to shreds by the
very corporations that were now using It for
the purpose of trampling labor under foot.
God save a country guilty of such damnable
The- speaker then related the facts con
cerning the recent conflicts between the
mobs and the troops In Chicago. He quoted
the remark of Brigadier General Wheeler ,
who thanked God that blood had been shed.
Whoso blood had been shed ? One of the
killed , was an 18-year-old girl , who was
viewing the conflict from the top of n house
several blocks away. She was killed and
thejlust of Genejal Wheeler for blood was
partially satisfied. John Durke , another
man killed , was Identified by the police ns
n dangerous crook nnd a criminal of the
deepest dye. It was lucky for the country
that Burke was killed before-the United
2tates marshal discovered him or he would
have been sworn In as a deputy. Among
the wounded were five women , sir boys and
n baby In Its mother's arms. Wheeler's lust
for blood must have been fully satisfied
when this dangerous and lawless * baby fell
from Its mother's arms. \
Judges Jenkins nnd Dundy. then came Infer
for their share of the general denunciation
nnd the worklngmen were warned'that ' even
Jud < ro CnldwelPs recent decision was looked
upon ns an experiment by rnilroad men.
In closing , the speaker urged laboring men
to stand together. He told them that they
could accomplish all their ends by an np-
peal to the ballot and urged them to vote
for no ono who was not a friend of labor.
Ho then presented the following resolutions ,
which were adopted with n mighty shout :
Whereas , It Is the province of govern
ment to protect Us citizens In the natural
nnd Inalienable rights of life , liberty , and
happiness , and In the performance of its
functions It should niukc no discrimination
between thw-poor and the ilc'h. guarantee
ing to each nnd all , by virtue of their
manhood and womanhood. Irrespective of
property or station , the full opportunity to
use their faculties for the Individual nnd
gcnenil welfare ; nnd ,
\Vherens , Certain creations of govern
ment , known as corporations , have con
stantly nnd without limit sought to In
fringe the rights of the people , having be
come n vast mechanism of Inordinate
greed , tyranny nnd lawlessness , disregard
ing every human right and subverting the
pwposes of Kovnrninent to the vilest nnd
most destructive ends of a few conscience
less men ; anil ,
Wheiens , The president of these United
Status did , at the demnnd of the corpora
tions , their aids , and their abettors , cull
thft congress of thc.se states to meet In
extraordinary session ono year ngo to carry
out the behests of the enemies of the re
public ; nnd
\Vhercns , In the present crisis all depart
ments of government nro present nt the
cnpltul ready to perform tholr respective
functions , nnd can by immediate action de-
line the position of the government In Its
ielation to said corporations , nnd compel
their submission to the fundamental prin
ciples upon which the pcrmancy of our na
tional institutions depend ; therefore , Ue It
llesolvtd , That we call upon the congress
of the 1'nlted States tn piovlde by Imme
diate legislation for the adjustment of dif
ferences arising between enporatlons en

employes , nnd to recognize In the eniiot-

Sam Nedrey then addressed the crowds.
He urged everybody to go out on the strlko
this morning at 7 o'clock nnd predicted the
success of Iho strlko commenced by Eugene
Debs. Ho denounced In strong terms Iho la
boring man who would refuse to stand by his
brothers In the present controversy , and said
that Ihe slrlko ordered by Sovereign would
bo general all over the United States. The
crowd applauded his utterances liberally and
every allusion lo the general strike was
greeted by cheers. The meeting then closed
after the announcement that another mass
meeting would bo held at the same place
some ovenjng later In the week.
Judge OroHncup ( IIvon Them Lengthy In-
Ktructlon * on Their Duty.
CHICAGO , July 10. The special federal
grand Jury to Investigate the strike as
sembled today. It Is drawn from the coun
ties of the northern part of the state.
When nil Iho grand Jurors had been sworn
'they were charged as to their duties by
Judge Grosscup ns follows :
"Gentlemen of the Grand Jury : You have
been summoned here to Inquire whether
any of the laws of the United States within
this Judicial district have been violated.
You have como Into an nlmosphero and
nmlil occurrences lhat may well cause rea
sonable men to question whether the laws
of the United States nre yet supreme.
Thanks to resolute manhood and to that
enlightened Intelligence which perceives the
necessity of a vindication of law be
fore any other adjustments are pos
slblo , the government of the United
States Is still supreme. You doubt
less feel aa I do that opportunities of life ,
under present conditions , are not entirely
equnl nnd lhat changes are needed lo nr-
rest some of the dangerous tendencies of
current Industrial life. But neither the torch
of Ihe Incendiary nor Iho weap6n of the
Insurrection , nor the Inflamed tongue of
him who Incites to fire and sword Is the
Instrument to bring about reforms. To the
mind of the American people , to the calm ,
dispassionate , sympathellc Judgmenl of a
race that Is not afraid to face deep charges
nnd responsibilities , there has as yet been no
appeal. Men who appear as the champions
of great changes must first submit them to
discussion dlscuss'on that reaches not simply
the parties Interested , but the wider circles
of society and must be patient nnd per
severing until the public intelligence has
been reached nnd a public Judgment , made
up. An appeal lo force before Ihal hour Is
a crime , not only against the government
of existing laws , but against Ihe cause it
self , for what man of any Intelligence sup
poses that any settlement will abide which
is induced under the light of the torch or
Ihe shadow of an overpowering threat. AVith
the questions behind present occurrences ,
therefore , we have , as ministers of the law
and citizens of the republic , nothing to do.
"Tho law , as It Is , must first bo vindicated
before we turn aside to Inquire how law or
pracllce , as II ought to be , can be effectu
ally brought about. Government by law Is
Imperiled and that issue Is-paramount. The
government of the United States has laws , ,
ifirst , to protect Itself and Its authorlly . .as' ,
a government ; and , sec'o.ndjy/ protect Its'
aulhorlly over those agencles to which , undqr
the constitution and laws.Mt extends'goVerri-
mental laws. For "the fb'rmer purpose ,
namely , to protect Itself and its authority
as a government , It has enacted 'that .every
person who entices , sets on foot " , assists or
engages In any rebellion or "insurrection
against the authority of the United States
or the > laws thereof , or gives aid or comfort
therelo , " and 'any two or more persons In any
stale or territory who conspire to overthrow ,
put down or destroy by force the government
of the United States , or to levy war ngalnsl
Ihem or to oppose by force the authority
thereof , or by force to prevent , hinder or
delay the execution of nny law of the United
Stales , or by force lo seize , lake or possess
any property of Ihe United Slales contrary
to authorlly' shall bo visited wjth cerlaln
penallles therein named.
"Insurrection Is arising against civil or
political authority ; the open nnd nctlve op-
poslllon of n number of persons to the opera
tion of the law In n city or a' state. Now
the laws of Iho Untied Slates forbid , under
penalty , any persons from obstrucltng or re-
Inrdlng Ihe passage of the. malls and make
It the duty of the officer to arrest suoh .of
fenders nnd bring them before the court.
If , therefore. It shall appear to you that any
person or persons have wilfully ohstrucled or
retarded the malls and that their ntlempted
arrest for hucli offens.0 hns been opposed by
such n number of persons as would consti
tute a general uprising In that particular lo
cality and that threatens for the time being
Iho civil and political authority , then the
fad of an Insurrection within the meaning
of the law has been established , and 'ho who
by speech , writing , promises or other Induce
ments assists In selling It on foot or carryIng -
Ing It along or gives It aid or comfort' Is
guilty of n violation of law. It Is not neces
sary thai lliere should be bloodshed ; II Is
not necessary that Us dimensions should be
so porlenllous as lo Insure probable success
10 constitute an Insurrecllon. It Is neccsr
sary , however , that the rising should bo In
opposition to the execution of Ihe laws of
Ihu United States and should be so formld-
nblo for the time being ns to defy the nu-
Ihorlty of the United States. When men
gather to resist Ihe pollllcal or civil power
of Ujo Unlled Slates or to prevent the exe
cution of Its laws and nro In such force lhat
the/civil / nutliorillca nre inadequate lo pul
them down and n considerable military force ,
Is needed to accomplish that result they be-
cotno Insurgents , and every JiCjyon who know
ingly Incites , aids or nbels them , no matter
what his motives may be. Is likewise an In
surgent. This penalty Is severe , and , ns I
have said , Is designed lo protect the govern
ment nnd Its authority agalnsl direct uttnck.
There are oilier provisions of law designed
to protect tlrtise particular agencies which
come within governmcnlnl control. To these
I will now call your attention.
"Tho malls nre In the special keeping of
the government nnd laws of the United
States. To Insure unhindered transmission
11 Is made nn offense lo 'knowingly nnd wil
fully obstruct the passage oflhe mall or nny
carriage , horse , driver or carrier carrying
Ihe same. ' It Is also provided lhat 'If two
or more persons consplro together to commit
any offense against the United Stales , * *
nnd one or more of such parlies do any act to
effect the object of the conspiracy. ' alt par
ties thereto MiaU be subject to a penalty.
Any person wilfully or knowingly doing any
acl which contributes or Is calculated to
contribute to obstructing or .hindering mall
service , who willingly or knowingly takes
part In such net , no mailer how trivial , If
Intentional , Is greatly In violation of the first
of these provisions , nnd nny person who con
spires with one or moro persons , one of
whom subsequently commits the offense , Is
likewise guilty of an offense against the
United States.
"What constitutes conspiracy to hinder or
obstruct the malls will ba touched upon lu
connection with the subject o which I now
call your attention. The constitution places
the regulation of commerce between the sev
eral states and between the states and for
eign nations within the keeping of the United
States government. Anything which Is de
signed to bo transported for commercial pur
poses from one state to another nnd Is UOT
tunlly In transit , and any passenger who U
actually engaged In any such Interstate com
mercial transiicllon , nnd any car or carriage
actually transporting or engaged In. irons ?
porting such passenger or agencies ,
uro subject matter of Interstate com
merce , nnd any conspiracy In , , , re-
slralnt of such trade or commerce Is an
offense against the United States. To re
strain Is to prohibit , limit , confine or abridge
a thing. The restraint may be permanent
or temporary ; It may buJntendcd to prohibit ,
limit or abridge foPIdlTl tnno or for n day
only , The law draw IT m > distinction In this
respect. Commerce ot ( his character IB In
tended lo be frre , except when subject to
regulations by law at all times nnd for nil
periods. Temporary ftltralnt Is , therefore ,
as Intolerable as permanent , nnd practical
restraint by actual physical Interference as
criminal ns that' whjcljnows from the ar
rangements of business n'nd organization.
Any physical InlcrfWe'hbc , therefore , which
has the effect of retraining arty passenger ,
car or thing constituting tan element of Inter-
slate commerce for pis the foundation for this
commerce. IJut to complete this offense , as
also that of consplrapy.to obstruct the malls ,
thcro must exist In addition to the resolve
or purpose the element of criminal con
"What Is criminal conspiracy ? If It shall
appear to you that any one or moro persons
corruptly or wrongfully agreed with each
other that the trains carrying the malls and
Interstate commerce should bo forcibly ar-
rcsled , obslructed and restrained , such would
clearly constitute a conspiracy.
"If It shall appear to you that two or
moro persons corruptly or wrongfully agreed
with each other that the employes of the
several railroads carrying the malls nnd In-
lorslnle commerce should quit , and lhat suc-
cestors should , by threats , Intimidation or
violence , ba prevailed from taking their
places , such would constitute n consplrncy.
"I recognize , however , the right of labor
to organize. Each man In America Is a
free men , and so long as he does not Inter
fere wllh the rights of olhers ho has Iho
right to do with that which Is his what he
pleases. In the hlgho't sense n man's arm
Is his own , and aside from contract rela
tions no oner but. himself can direct when
It shall bo raised to work or shall be dropped
to rest. The Individual option lo work or to
quit Is the Imperishable right of a free man.
Hut the raising or dropping of the arm It
the result of a will that reside : In the
brain , and much as wo may deslro that
such will should remain entirely Independent ,
there Is no mandate of law which prevents
their association with others and response
to a higher will.
"Tho Individual may feel himself alone
unequal to cope with the conditions that
confront him , or unable to comprehend Iho
myriad of considerations lhat ought to con
trol his conduct. Ho Is entitled lo Ihe high
est wage the slralegy of work or cessation
from work may bnng ( and the llmltallons
upon life Intelligence and opportunities maybe
bo such that he does not cheese to stand
upon his perception of strategic or oilier
conditions. His right to choose a leader ,
ono who observes , thinks and wills for him
a brain skilled to observe his Interest-
Is no greater pretenllon thnn that which Is
recognized In every other department of
Industry. So far and within reatonable lim
its associations of this character are not
only lawful , but nre , In my Judgment , bene-
flclnl , when they do not restrain Individual
liberty and are under enlightened nnd con
scientious leadership. But Ihey are subject
to the same laws aa other associations. The
leaders to whom are given the vast power of
Judging and acting for the members nre
simply , In Hint respect , their truilees ; their
conduct must be judged like that of other
truslees , by Iho extent of their lawful au
thority and the good faith with which they
have executed It. No man In his Individual
right can lawfully demand and Insist upon
conduct by others which will lead to an In
jury to n third person's .lawful rlghls. The

nro simply Interlopers for mischief and are
guilty of a conspiracy against the employer
of the carpenters. But If , upon a trial for
'such resulls , they prove that instead of be
ing strangers they are the truslees , agents or
leaders of the twelve , -with full power to
determine for Ihem whether their wage Is
such that they ought to contlnuo or qull , and
lhat they have In good faith determined that
question , they are not then , so far as the
law goes , conspirators. But If It should fur
ther appear that the supposed authority was
used , not In the Interest of the twelve , butte
to further 'a personal ambition or malice of
the two. It WQUld-no''longor Justify their
conduct. Doing a thing under a cloak ot
aulhorlly Is not dolnp It wllh authority. The
Injury of the two to the employer In such an
Instance would only be aggravnted by Ihelr
treachery tp the associated twelve , and both
employer and employes should with equal
Insistence nsk the visitation of the law. If
It appears to you , therefore , applying the
Illustration lo the occurrences that will be
brought to your atlenllon , ' Ihal any two or
more persons , by concert , Insisted or de
manded , . under effective penalties nnd
threals , "upon men quitting their employ
ment to the obstruction of the malls or In-
terstale commerce , you may Inquire whether
Ihey did these acts as strangers to these
men , or whether they did them under the
guise of truslees or leaders of any associa
tion to which these men'belonged , and If the
latter appears you may Inquire whether their
acts and conduct In thai respect were In
Iho faithful and conscientious execution of
their supposed authority or were simply .a
ruse of that authorlly as a gulso to advance
personal ambition or satisfy private malice.
There Is honest leadership among these , our
laboring fellow citizens , and thereIs doubt
less dishonest leadership. You should not
brand nny act of leadership as done dis
honestly or In bad faith unless It clearly so
appears. But If It does so appear. If any
person Is shown to have .betrayed Iho Irusl of
these tolling men , and their acts fnll within
the definition of crime as I have given II lo
you. It is alike Ihe Interest , Ihe pleasure and
Iho duly of every citizen lo bring upon them
swift and heavy punishment. It-wish again.
In conclusion , to Impress upon you the fnct
the present emergency Is lo vindicate law.
If no one has violated the law under the
rules I have laid down It needs no vindica
tion , but If tiero ) has been such violation
there should be prompt , quick and adequate
Indictment. I confess Iho problems which

as citizens to take themup and by candid

CHICAGO , July 10. For the first tlmo
slnco Thursday , July G , a train was sent
out of the stock yards nt 10:20 : n. m. today.
The train was made up of forty cars , some
of which will go lo lloslon , nnd the others
to Charleston , at which ports the meat with
which Ihcy nro loaded will bo sent to Eu
rope. The tracks nt the stock ynrds had
boon cleared during the night , and when It
was announced this morning that the train
was ready to bo moved , two companies of
Iho slalo mllltla encamped at Dexter park
were sent out to protect It. The men were
stationed along Ihe tracks within and with
out the yards , and were vllllfled by a great
crowd of onlookers. Ther was no attempt
to intcrfero 'wllh the movement Of the
troops and no violence against the troops
was attempted. The yards are guarded by n
company of mounted hussars , as well as by
the special detail of Infantry , nnd Iho tracks
nre gunrded outsldo the ynrds by mllltla
for a distance of thrco miles to the connec
tion with the main lines of the eastern
President Egan of the General Managers'
association this morning reporled trains
moving on nil roads. Several meat trains
were sent out of the slock ynrds last night
and this morning and a number of consign
ments of live Block received. Freight busi
ness U beginning to bo resumed. Some of
the tracks used for freight trains only In
the yards have not been cleared , but Ihey
are being cleared rapidly of the obstructions
Ihrown across Iho Irack last week by Iho
rioters. Mr. Egan claimed the outlook to
bo decidedly encouraging. Ho said thai Iho
railroad companies would continue lo Ignore
Mr. Pullman and his striking employes in
the present dlfllculty.
Several of the general managers predicted
thai In ono or Iwo days more Irafllc would bo
resumed In all departments on schedule time.
All the roads reported that they had enough
men now to operate their lines and that the
outlook was brighter tlian It has been since
Juno 2G.
Word was sent to Iho yards this morning
that the Northwestern company had a trainload -
load of 0.000 sheep within six hours run of
Chicago and that it would bo started In If
the cars could bo handled In the yards. Re
ply was made" that the lines in the yards
were clear.
After the conference between the mayor
nnd the three generals commanding Iho
brigades now In sen-Ice In Iho clly Mayor
Hopkins said Ihls afternoon lhat there would
bo no Immediate change In the disposition
of the troops except In cases of emergency.
The mayor said he anticipated no reason
for additional police protection In the down-
lown district on account of the projected
strike of tomorrow. There was some talk
pf having the mllltla do regular patroi
service In the streets of the city , but that
plan was abandoned. "
The labor wing of the arbitration com-
mltteo which called on Iho Pullman com
pany yeslerday called on Ihe mayor this
morning , but gelling llred of wallIng -
Ing , left before they had seen him.
They would not stale their business. The
fact that Assistant Counsel Rankln and Gen
eral Manager 0Browno of the Pullman com
pany were present In the mayor's office at
the time gave rise to a rumor thai there
mlglit bo arbitration. The Pullman of-
flclals , however , , came simply to aak for
more protection at Pullman.
Chief Brennan reported that his rcports'ln-
dlcated that all Is quiet all over the city.
For answer to President Deb's call upon
all his sympathizers to wear white ribbons ,
miniature United Staates flags are being dis

The Pullman building at Michigan avenue
and Adams street , the homo of the Pullman
Palace Car company , as well as the head
quarters of General Miles and the Depart
ment of the MIssourl.U.S.A. , Is under n strong
guard of armed men , said to be Plnkerton
detectives. The big building , which Is one
of the most palatial and elegantly furnished
In the city , has been under guard ever since
the beginning of the Pullman strike , but
within the past twenty-four hours the force
of detectives has been Increased threefold.
At the present time there are five or six of
them at every entrance of the building ,
guarding the stairways and elevators at
every landing. In addition to this they are
distributed on all Ihe floors nnd In every
ofllce of Ihe Pullman company. A slranger ,
especially should ho be not particularly well
dressed. Is accosted upon entering thfi build
ing , and If he succeeds In passing the outer
guard ho Is slopped every few feet by n
guard. They are everywhere and teem to
walk out of every closet and room In the
place. About the offices of Second Vice
President Wlckes there are nt least half a
dozen of the detectives , nnd that official
never leaves the olllce unless ho Is accompa
nied or followed closely by one or two of
them. When questioned , the men deny
that they are Plnkertons , but admit that
they are guards employed by the Pullman
Armour & Co. moved a train of meat cars
this morning In spite of a mob that gathered
along Loomls nnd Forty-seventh streels to
oppose the train , Slones were Ihrown and
the crowd Indulged In hooting , but the ap
pearance of a detachment of troops put an
end to the scene of dlorder , A train of sixty-
five cars loaded by Swift , Armour and Morris
was cent out this mornlnc over the Balti

Ihls morning that Its Iracks were clear and
lhat all cars sent to it by outsldo roads

Additional United States troops from Fort

Mr. ColiiMi Sityn Thry Would Obry nn Order
In Unit ,
M. Cohen , district master workman for
Omaha , had not ytt received the general
order to strlko from Grand Master Work
man Sovereign nt midnight. Ho stntcd ,
however , lhat ho had been ap
prised uriofilclally lhat the order was coming
and that ho expected to rccclvo It by tele
graph any moment. As soon as he received
It he would Issue a direct call ordering out
nil the Knights of Labor under his
jurisdiction , comprising the cities of
Omaha , .South Omaha , Florence nnd Lincoln ,
Personally Mr. Cohen seemed lo bo warmly
In favor of a general strike. IIo staled thai
he had given his whole tlmo to the consider
ation of the subject far the past two days ,
and1 that ho had mndo a personal canvass of
many of the- Industrial establishments of
the city for the purpose of ascertaining the
sentiments of the Knights of Labor In re
gard to the situation. As a result of his
inquiries Mr. Cohen feels satisfied lhat nearly
all of the Knights of Labor In this district , to
the number of nearly 4,000 , will refuse to go
to work when tie | call conies.
As to the number of knights In the employ
of the several railroad companies centering
In Omaha , Mr. Cohen was unable lo slalo
wllh any degree of poslltvcness. He said
there wns some question ns to Iho railroad
men going oul , but he Intimated that there
was some movement on foot which was to bo
sedulously guarded from the public until
the opportunlly for Us development became
ripe. As to the other classes of knlgbts he
was certain lhat Ihcy were all anxious lo
enler upon a sympathetic strike , and that
they were able to stnnd the strike several
weeks without any berious impairment of
the finances of the order.
But there are surface Indications Hint Mr.
Cohen's order to quit work will
not meet with the enthuslnsllc recepllon
anticipated ! . Had the order been Issued lasl
Saturday night It Is likely that a largo
majority of the Oninha labor unions would
have ohccrfully obeyed It. At that time
Ihe slrlko of Ihe A. II. U. In Chicago seemed
about to be successful. It looked then ns If
a general strike was all thai was needed lo
Insure a victory and that such a strlko
would be of short duration. Hut
the situation In Chicago and
In other largo cllles affected by Iho Pullman
boycott seems to have materially changed
since Inst Saturday. In the ilrst place , Ihe
mobs of vicious characlers who do not be
long to the labor organizations , but who
seized upon the strike ns a pretext for their
acts of violence , have been Ihoroughly cowed
by the severe punishment administered to
them by the state and regular troops. The
members of the A. R. U. cannot enforce the
boycott by peaceful means nnd they will nol
resort to force. The blockade has been
raised and trains of all kinds are beginning
to run with something that approaches their
old-time regularity. The Knights of Labor
In Omaha seem to realize this fact
as quickly ns nnybody. They begin
to see that a sympathetic strike will
hardly be successful. Consequently they are
beginning to discuss the matter of a local
strike with considerable reluctance. It Is
stated on good authorily lhat the Knights of
Labor employed on the Union Pacific will
not obey the order to strike. A canvass of
the packing houses In South Omaha reveals
Iho fact that a largo majority of the men
employed there nre not In favor of n strike.
The street railway men have no grievances
and they are not well organized. The other
organizations nro equally reluctant. The
sentlnienl lhat a sympalhellc slrlko nt the
present lime would be useless seems to bo
rapidly spreading in Omaha and nothing but
unusual pressure will turn the tide the olhor
John B. Schupp , president of the Omaha
Central Labor union , said when told of the
contemplaled order for all lo slrlko that , as
the Central Labor union would meet In reg
ular session this evening , ho would take no
acllon loward calling nn earlier meeling. ns
he did not know what the general sentiment
was In the city regarding n strlko. He
would not predict the action likely to betaken
taken nt the meeting this evening nnd said
that he was willing to do whatever the Cen
tral Labor union delegates wanled to do.
Ills action would be governed entirely by
the notion of the union. Other members of
the union expressed themselves ns being
satisfied with the sentlmonls of President
Schupp nnd they did not think this n llmo
° ItnCs | current talk that If all railrond men
were to quit work the various trades and
labor assemblies would not hesitate to walk
out. which would bring n crisis , but as the
railrond men. In these parts keep on work ,
ing olher Irades hesitate to anticipate them.
Superintendent of Motive Power McConnell -
nell of the Union Pacific , In discussing the
report that the Knights of Labor would bo
called out all over the country , said to a
Bee man that he didn't believe the members
of the order on the Union Pacific would go
"While not certain as to the number of
Knights connected with the Union Pacific
nt this point , I believe I would be safe In
saying that they do not number more than
200 members. The great proportion of Iho
membership Is found at Ihe shops , divided
among the blacksmiths , foundrymen and ma
chinists. Time was when this organization
was particularly strong on the system , Sec--
relary Corbln at one time making the state
ment that It represented 0,000 men. But
with the rise of blacksmiths , machinists
nnd other unions the men hnvo largely left
the Knights of Labor and have Identified
themselves with these unions.
Asked If the knights should go out at the
shops whether It would seriously Interfere
with the running of the shops , Mr. McConnell -
nell replied that ho thought they would bo
able to run without them.
