Chicago, July 5
PRESIDENT DEUS. of tfca Atu-ri-eau

of the great strike ot wblcb be is

art as follows:
Tie Pullman employes who struck on

cord. Tbe officers of the American Riil
vay nniou us-ed all tbeir influence to pacify
the employe, and advised ihetn repeated

leen repeatedly reduced, but rent and
ether expenses remained the name.
WILLING TO ARBITRATE.
, The employes from tbe beginning have
been willing to arbitrate tbeir differences
with tbe conipuuy, but tbe company arro
gantly declare that there is nothing to
arbitrate. If this tie true, wby not allow
a board of tn'r and impartial arbitrators to
determine Ihe f net r Committee afier
committee wait' cl up- n tbe ufllcir.le of the
I'lillinan compan , but all their advancos
were repelled. Finally, on June IU, the
deleguies ot tbe American Railway uuion,
repiysnlini 4.5 locul unions of railway
wiloyes locate i on the principal lines of
A.uit-ricau tuilnnys, discussed the Pulliuau
trouble-nt Chicago, and, as a lust resort,
tbe delegate di ti'im. ned that unloss the
i'ullmau company couH ugree to do justice
to tbeir employee wituiu live days, tbe
members of tbe order would decline to
haul Pullman cars. This action, be it te-lm-mbeiud,
was not taken until the strikes
liart been on six weeks.
Up to this point tbe trouble was confined
to the Pullman company aud its employes.
How, then, did tbo stuke t xtoud to the
railways? Let tbo answer be given in ac
rorliii.cu Willi l lie facts as they are. The

fight upon the employes, thin they would
haul Pullman ears, and that they would

Incidents of th Dig- Strike EnaoteO. in
and Near Chicago.
Chicago, July 5. Wild scenes were
enacted ou a stretch of railroad terri
tory occupied by the tracks of tbe Lake
Shore and Rock Iilutid, and rnuning
south for some three mile from the
board of trade structure in the heart
ot tbe tujiaeis district. Within tbis
district, hardly m re than a block in
width, and fringed on either tide with
tenements or the bumble bom-s of rail
road men aud other wage workers, a
mob that aggregated not less tbau 25,
000 men, women and children, had
complete control. Nearly a score of
cars were overturned on tbe main
tracks, others were fired, s witches were
unlocked und rendered useless, regular
troops were jeered and police hooted at
aud dared to do their best, or worst.
The riotous demonstrations began
just before noon at Thirtieth street
und tbe Lake Shore tracks. Word
came to a mob that had gathered there
that with the aid of the cavalry and
deputy marshal, a ueaviiy-loadsd
cattle train for the New York
'Jeutral road had been moved
ont of the yards and was on its
way over the Transit line. With
a yell that was beard blocks away, the
mob at tbis time about 2,000 strong,
moved west to where several empty
freight cars stood on the main track.
There was a rusb for tbe freight cars
and in the twlukling of an eye two of
them bad been turned completely over,
trncks upwards, and effectually block
ing tbe track over wbioh tbe approach
ing cattle train was making its way.
MANY CARS OVERTURNED.
The mob retruced its steps eastward
to tbe tracks ot the Rock .Iiland and
Lake Suore. Here it proceeded to
overturn cars by tbe wholesale.- Two
were placed across tbe crossing ot tbe
belt line in order to rivet the obstruc
tion to the cuttle train in the event of
the blockade farther west being raised.
Then other cars were turned over on
the Luk jshore and Rook Island tracks
at the rate of two a block for nearly a
mile southward, while tbe mob hootad
and yolledand cheered the crash made
by each car as it turned a somvrsault.
At foment street, shortly after.
noon, one of tbe string of freight cars
Fuel was added to the strikers' fury
about 2 o clock, when three Rock

und deputy marshals from Blue Island,
aud ttin others day and Pullman coach
es filljd with through passengers,
were 8eo in tbe distance. No ob
struction ou tbe main track was en
countered south of Thirty-ninth street.
nnd here the forward train came to a
full stop. Half a block ahead two
empty frc-ig.its were lying across
the track, Tbe passengers of the
trains 1" tbe rear were advis
ed of the situation and with one accord
tbey concluded to disembark there and
trust to to tbe cable cars to reach their
destination. In tbe meantime tbe
molar troops, comprising companies
Uand 1) ot the Thirteenth infantry
ntider the resp ciive commands of
Captains Corrjid uu4 Cornish, had left
the first train and were drawn np on
either side of the cars. The mob,
wnicii by this tim had ifotten itujlf
out of the font'fs, greeted the troops
wlln n stolid silence.
RAILROAD OFFICIALS WORK.
Tel'-erams were tout to th? yards for
a wrecking crew, bnt the reply came
back tbat not a man could be had lor
love or money, and so the group of of-
Gcials that hr.d met the train at this
point, and wbii h included G.mral Su

Just as the firBt or had been cloared
otf the tracks, a mighty shout was
heard a few blocks uortb, and im
mediately after a rpmbling, hollow
noise told the story tbut more obstruc
tions bad lo-.-n placed in tbe passage of
tbo trains. At the r-qu-)st of Murbal
Donnelly, Captain Conrad started olf
at double quick time at the head of
Company C. but by tbe time the
troops reached the scene, tbe mob had
cleared itself from tbe tracks to the
roadway ou either side, and the soldiers
were treated to a round of ironical up
plause by way of recognition for their
trot, it was nearly an hour before tbe
main traok had been cleared of the
overturned cars, and then tbe three

Beauchamu Clark, of Missouri, today
in speaking of the tariff bill as it past
ed tbe senate.
'Are not you 'better latlefied with
tbe senate bill than yon are with the
law as it is now on the statute books!"
be was asked.
"If it were a Republioaa bill, yes, I
wonld clap my bauds over it with joy.
I would hail it as tbe dawn of a brighter
era in the destiny of the Repnblio if
the Republican party would father
such a bill. But as a Democratic
measure I do not like it. It is not tbe
kind ot a bill we passed through tt;e
house. If tue bill bad come to us from
the senate last December, it would not
have lived twenty-four hours.
"Suppose tbat tbe conference report
that they have agreed to leave sugar
as It now stands In the bill, what is the
house likely to do with it?"
"That is pretty hard to say. Over
here we want free ingar and we are
going to get it it we can, It tb con
ferres will put coal, iron and lead ore,

duoe woolen manufactures, we shall
be pretty well satished with it. but
we are far from sattsued as tbe bill
"Do you think a conference report
agreeing in tbe main with tbe senate
amendments will pass tbe house?"

Satanita After a Spirited Race for
the Muir Memorial Cup the Vigilant
Is Overtaken and Beaten by the
Firth of Clyde, Juiv 5.
THE regatta of tbe Mudboak Yacht
club today opened amid popnlar
excilement, which was soon af
ter much increuaed by a colli
sion between tbe Valkyrie aud
Sutanlta, which resulted in the
sinking of the former yacht and
the serious disabling of tbe
latter, All on board were rescued. Tbe
race proceeded, notwithstanding tb
disinter, aud Britannia, which had the
best of the start, wus overhauled and
(lasted by Vigilant In the ruce for tbe
Muir memorial cup. Ua the seoond
round, however, Vigilant lost and was
finally beaten by Britannia by about
bait a minute.
Owing to the suddenness of the
accident to tbe Valkyri-3, neither Lord
Duuraven nor any of bit friendt are
able to tell how it ccunrred, The
Sataoita out through tbe Vulkyrle to
tbe cabin, which tilled long before tbe
yacbt went down. Tbe tuuken yacht
now list in fourteen fathoms of water
ou a fishing baDk. Ten feet of the
Satanita t rail wus carried away wben
tbe Valkyrie collided with her.
Lord Dunraveu was taken on board
Hobe. Tb captain of Satanita raid
that he did not have room to turn, ow
ing to th large number of steam aud
other yachts wbicb gathered about the
starting line. Valkyrie is completely
lost to far as racing is concerned, and
will probably bave to be raised in
pieces, as the crew declare tbat she
was virtually broken in halves.
HILL TO BE BOYCOTTED,
His Course with Reference to the
Tariff Bill Is Not Relished by
Washington, July 5. The Demo
erats of tbe senate are determined that
Mr. Hill snail not longer bs regarded
as a member of their pirty. It has not
yet been definitely decided whether Mr,
Blackbnru's plau-of having the senior
New York senator formally read out
of the party by a caucus reso
lution will be adopted, but tbore is a
determination that be shall not be
taken into Democratic caucusss or con
ferences, nor cousulted iu any way as
to party matters. The boycott is in
augurated against him even if no for
mal action is takn.
It is likely, however, tbat there will
be some caucus action upon him. A
movement wus started for such aotioti
before it was known definitely that be
would vote against the tariff bill, but
tbe more conservative teuatort urged
tbat nothing be done until after the
bill bad been voted on, and it Wat im
plied that if be did vote against tbe
bill be would be formally expelled from
