THE crucial point iu the railroad
strike will t reached within
twenty-four hours from mid
night. This is the opinion oou
fiJeutly expressed at the headquarter s
of the railioad managers at n lute boor
tonight. It ie likewise the first expres
sion emanating froia the managers'
end since the commencement of hos
tilities with which the representatives
of the strikers ere io complete accord.
Both elements are sanguine that tb
beginning of the end will be in sight
Wore sundown Tuesday.
As to the tueans by which this de
sirable coosuiDUiutioa is to he attained
however, there is a radical dtffrenee of
cpinioii. The general managers pro-f.-ss
to believe that the extraordinary
injanotion issnsd today by Judges
Woods sod Crosscup will prove to be
worthy of the tree yet epigrammatic
dtitiif ui.tion given it by t tie merubars nf
the Ptdoral judiciary first named, "A
Gatling kuu uu papir"
The strike is tying np lake trafflo
five! ually. The grain trade is com
pletely puralyzd. as the railroads are
unable to get any corn or oats to the
elevators, and the stocks for shipment
ure well niirh exhansted.

Locomotive Firemen at Brighton pirk

word from snbordiuates that the

The NhUuiimI Association of Street
Employes wired us today that it will
do everything possible to help ns win,"
said Prtsident Debs to J ay. "The pres
ident of the Sen man's union came here
todiiy and reported that his organiza
tion was perteily willing to obey an
order for a walk out. The committee
of the Statidiird Oil employes in this
city ulso cnuiB to us. They stmd ready
to quit work. The trade and lalior
assrinhly of Chicago bus Kivn os aur
ranee that it will ordr a general
strike at our request. This would par
.tilyze the industries of the town, but
' we have no intention of doing sush n
thing. Jnt us long ns we can wh shall
confine tis fitfbt to the railroads. This
forenoon I issued nn order tying up the
remainder of the D'nvor mid Rio
Grande system. Wo feel encouraged at
the outlook to lay and shall fight on
with renewed hope and confidence in
oar ultimate victory."
When Mr Dobs' uttention wus called
to the minors that have been in circu
lation for the two days, to the ef
fect that ni'guiiations looking to m set
tlement of the strlko were being con
dncted between himself and M. Studo
baker for the Pullman company, he
declined to answer direct questions,
tut contented to outline the terms npon
which the officers of the union would
settle the strike: "First, we will settle
with the Pullman company upon
any terms that the employes of the
company may desire. We will settle
with the railroads on the oondition
that they restore their striking em
ployes to their former places. We want
the settlement to take place with ail
the corporations at ouce. This is a
general fight between employes and
corporations. The middle people and
the working people are wltb ns."
Aroording to the law, hb expounded
by United States District Attorney Mil
Christ tonight the publication "of the
decree in a widely circulated paper, Its
posting in a poblio placs where it is
certain to be read and its contents dis
seminated, or the formal reading to a
dtnioDstratlve crowd by a deputy mar
shal, may be ruled upon as constitut
ing sufficient servlee to place Uose
guilty of a breach of its provisions
under the ban of the law. Under this
Interpretation thousands of strikers
might be srrested day after day and
. be arraigned and summarily dealt with
for contempt of court, and tbls is pre
cisely the policy, according to the re
ports at the government building to
night that it is intended to pursue. If
it is carried out there wUl be no need,
o It is believed, for the employment of
lther state militia or federal troops.
ToPEXi, Kan., July 2 General
Manager Frey reported wore p isseng-r
trains in service between Chicago und
Denver than at any time since the
strike began. Ho also reports freights
rnnuing out of several important
points. The strike sentiment Is rapidly
increasing here, and mail belonging to
the old organizations are joining the
new. The tflioers of the engineers'
and conductors' l.rotherboods admit
that it is a deuth struggle between
Dets and the old brotherhood lenders.
Meetings are being held tonight of
every class of railway employes and
orders will be issued tomorrow.
Strong efforts are being made to In
volve the telegraph, operators and train
Denver, July 2. The strike sltnn
tion here is not materially changed. AH

of the trains are considerably delayed
Cleveland, O , July 2. The strike
and boycott against Pullui'iu throatous
to work bavos with the attendance of
the Christian Endeavor convention
which meets in Cleveland next week.
Messages from pussenger agents of all
the local Hues who are now looking np
this business, indicate that the people
are pretty well scared and many wiil
stay at home rather than run the risk
of being laid out along the road.
Cincinnati, O., July 2 There has
boen a slight change io the strike sttn
tion here. Seveuty-elght non-union
men employed in the Pullmau shops at
Ludlow, Ky., quit work this morning,
giving as their reason that they were
afraid of being assaulted by the strik
ers. The engineers sind firemen are
still at their posts, but a n timber of
thetu individually are willing to join
the strikers. When Strike Manager
Phelrn was asked this morning if the
eugineers were ready to go out as a
when called upon, he answered: "Un
fortunately they are not, but I am
hopeful for a change very soon. Many
of the tbe engiueers are with us."
By order of the war department the
Seventh reglinent.United States troops,
left their barracks at Fort Logau early
this morning, proceeding to Triuidad
where they will protect the property
of the Gulf and Santa Fe railroads
against violence ou 1 lie part of the
strikers. Brides this regiment, ' the
calvary at Fort Wing:, at New Mexico,
and the Tenth infantry stationed at
Sauta Fe will probably be moved to
the Sauta Fe line. Not a patseuger or
mull train has left Oden since yester
day morniug.
rUEliLO is loaded.
Denver, Colo., July 2. Marshal Is
rael has isaud orders to the deputies in
Pueblo to lirj if any attempts are made
to attack or disarm them. The depu
ties there are patrolling the railroad
yards, but the passenger traius at the
lepot are said to beio possession of the
strikers. Tbe federal troops, upon their
arrival in Pueblo, will disperse the
mob and place all railroad property in
possession of the railroad officials and
TJoited States deputy marshals, after
which tbey will push ou to Trinidad.
All trains left Denver on time this
Minneapolis, Minn., July 2. The
features of the strike situation in
Minneapolis today were the strikes of
of the firemen on the Chicago, Mil
waukee and St. Paul roads aud the
strike of the employes of tbe Minne
apolis eastern trunler. By tbe latter
strike a number of the mills are shut
off from railway communication, and
already half u dozsn tt jur mills have
had to shut. dowu. The Milwaukee
continued to run pissonger trains.
All freight business on the road af
fected by the strike is paralyzed.
New York, July 2 The railroad
strike has not as yet alTectcd the Nxw
York Central's traffic. All the weateru
trains are arriving at the Grand Cen
tral station practically on time. On
the Luke Shore Mere has been as yet
no trouble at all. The Central officials
look for no serious trouble as far as they
are concerned '1 hey nre of the opinion
that tbe American Railway union will
never be able to obtain a sufficient foot
ing on either the Like Shore or the
Michigan Central to cause any suspen
sion of business. But even in the event
of a general strike, on the two lines,
the Central would still have the Nickel
i'lrt- road to fall back on. The idea of
the strike becoming general in the east
is not considered at all by tbe Central
San Francisco. July 2 Up to 9
o'clock this morning no reports of
trouble with strikers rn the Southern
I'arllio system had been received.
Trafliois still virtually at a standstill,
Thositnatioi at S icritnento is ex
tremely critical. The United Stales
marshal is there with u small force,
while the strikers number close to
3,000. They are congregated about the
depot and are determined to resist the
moving of trains. The railrond people
are rqnally determined to reanuij traf
fic nnJ if they do tuorj will certainly
lie a disastrous .collision between the
contending forces.
New York, July 2. "This city Is
threatened with the worst fresh
nmat famine it has experienced In
twenty years on account of the rail
road strike," said a big dealer today.
"There has been no time within that
period when Chicago was shut out en
tirely for so long a timo us it has been
since the strike begun."
Nothing in the way of live or drossod
meat has started from Chicago to this
city sines last Friday. Customers be
gan to feel the advance today as there
tail butchers tRcked from 2 to 5 cents a
pound on nearly all fresh meats. The
city has been drawing considerable
quantity of Us supply of fresh meat
trom Baltimore and Pittsburg, but af
ter today the city will begin to draw on
New Jersey aud eustern Pennsylvania
for beef, but this supply will not last
California fruits have suffered most
through the railroad strike. Dealers in
smoked meats havo taken advantage of
the scarcity of fresh meat to advance
the price of hams and baoon. A
lengthened stride would interfere with
the utter supply.

time struok a new nuase of parliamen
tary procedure. Up to thisj tiim the
bill has been pending in committee of
the whole where bills receive their
first dressini, but now it is before tbe
senate proper.
At lO.itU a. m. tbe bill was tukon up,
and various propositions were made
and discussed in un informal way ns to
the mode of procedure. Ultimately it
was agreed thnt the (inundiuents to
which there was no special otjection
should be voted on in bnlk. Then
senators indicated amendments ou
which they desired special votes. Mr.
Sherman, Ohio, Belted that the entire
wool und wooleu schedule be reserved,
mid Air. McLxuriu, Miss., demanded a
separate vote on tbe amendment exclud
ing the salaries of the president aud

was antagonized by Mr. Hill, New
York, but it was agreed to yens 58,
nays 5 the negative votes being tliosj
of Senators Allen, Hill, Irhy, Kylo and
Peffer. . .... . . .
The longest aud closest struggle of
tbe day was over tbe sugar schedule,
and Mr. Hill was the only senator who
scored a signal victory over the fiuauce
committee on that field of action. Ho
offered an amendment, which was car
ried by a majority of 3, making the re
peal sugar bounty take place on the
passage of the act instead of on tbe first
of January 1895. Tbe vote was as fol

Washington. July 2.
SENATOR Dubois (Idaho), who hss
just returned from th meeting
of the League of Iiepublicau
Clubs nt Denver, brings enconr
uiug reports for the Republieans as to
tbs deeliue of the Populist party iu tbe
west. He said today that while
Ihe silver resolution adopted at
tbe uiotting was not all tho
silver men wanted, it wus
sufficient to bold tho western states in
the Republican lines. While tbe league
has no right to make party platforms
every state in the Union was represent
ed at the meeting, and it was regarded
as the herd 11 in advance of tbe next
national convention, aud as the only
source of authoritative or suuri-authoritative
expression for the party before
the ls30 national convoutiou,
The westeru Ropublicuns accepted
the silver resolution, he said, almost ss
in the nature of a promise tbat the
next Republican national platform
would declare In favor of tbe full res
toration of silver. With this under
standing of tho situation and expicta
tion for the future, the western states
would staud by the old party. Ail in
dications arc, be said, that the Popu
list party has gained no strength, bat
rather ou tbe contrary it may have lost
through a genera! disgust at their bad
government in those sections where
they have bad control, aud by their
general tendency towards anarchy.
Tbe genuine sllvsrmun regard the
Populist course as injurious to the sil
ver cause, and their dissatisfaction on
account of the treatment of silver dur
ing this congress has not drivsn them
to join the Populists. Notwithstand
ing the widespread discontent which
has been looked npon as likely to in
crease the strength of the Popnlist
movement, reports from tbe Populist
"strongholds" showed a weakening- iu
their lines iu all quarters, and an
almost universal disgust with them,

tueaal to the fkranton TW&une.
Pittston. Pa., July 2 A stormy
session of conucil was held tonight and
atone time tbe session became so turb
ulent tbat it was deemed expedient by
some to call in tbe presence of a police
uihu, thiukiug that would have a pa
cific effjet.
Tbe cause of the rhetorical couflict
was a political one, and had to do, in
part at least, with a resolution offered
by Councilman Konruey, but refused
recognition by the chair. It is under
stood that this resolution bore upon a
rumored compromise with the minority
element said to have beon made during
the day by President Mangnn; but of
this there was no evidence, since the
resolution was pocketed. Interesting
developments are expected.
