of tho American Railway uniou, left
today to begin the work of organizing
the uwn in tho northwest Htid
the country west of the Misiis
fjippi. There are now oight of these
organizes out. "Oar policy, said
Mr. Dobs, "is to keep these organ
izes with the men, so the strikers will
not weaken. We have everything
solid west or tho Mississippi. That is
our strong point. I claim that as loug
as we have tramc stopped at one point

smoothly on the different roada, does it
no: t Mr. Debs was asked.
''Oh, well." ndmittod tho labor
leader, "the passengT business in and
out is being transacted fairly well, but
there are no freights moving at all to

At the depots, Mr, Deba statement
that freight traffic is naralvzed is not
by any means borne out. Most of the
roads are moving freight without th'.i
slightest trouble.
When shown a United Press dispntel
saying that Mr. Heathcote, leader of
th Pullman strikers, had asked him to
call off the strike, Mr. Debs denied it
flatly, "The Pullman strikers are just
as firm as ever," he said. "They have
no intention of going b.ick to work. If
Pnllman is R-ttislind, they are. Mr,
Heathcote has not made me any propo

The resolution was opposed by Ponce.
(Pop, Col.), and conditionally by
Hland, (U in,, nio ), wuo denounced
the action of the federal otuodals in bis
own state as wnoiiy uunecp'sary.
Pence criticised the attitude and Mo
tion of Attorney General Olney to

charging that he had selected a rail
road nttorney of Chicago s special
assistant district attorney to prose
cute the strikers and their lead
ers in that city. He also re
ferred to the charges made in Demo

representative of corporations nnd
trusts, us a reason why bo should not
be in the position he occupies, and why
bis action should not be approved.

Conference Spends tho Day in Fruit
less Discussion Mr. Wilson Is
Suffering from Illness.
Washington, July 10. The tariff
conferees spnut the day in a fruitless
discussion of ths ameudments bearing
upon the dill-rent schedules of tho
bill. An explicit denial is given to the
report that a compromise had been
made on sugar. No such compromise
has resulted nor is any likely to result
within the uext forty time hours. This
schedule is the real oone of contention
aud it will probably be settled
last beo.mse of the concessions ou
other articles which lnunt be u neoes
snry part of any solnMon on the sugar
problem. It was said this afternoon
and for a time somo credit was placed
iu the story thai the conferees had
agreed to reduce the difL'rentiiil or.e
uighth of a cent given to refiners one
tenth of a cent, but this statement h
denied on the authority of a number of
tbe conferees. The senate is contend
ing for the senate provisions and tae
house still insists that lhe oue-eighth
be striken oil before the talk of com
promise. Mr. Wilson is ill nud his dntioB wero
assumed to some extent today by Mr.
Br' ckinridgo, of Arkansas, wiio is also
one of the member. of tho ways uufl
means. Mr. Wilson is suffering from
au aggravated attack of neuralgia, but
his physical enndiciou Is alarming to
his friends who fear that if the confer
ence be protracted it will result ju
brcukimr him dowu again.
Tho bouso conferees are op in arms
over the senate selr-diile in woolen
goods and will listiin to no argnmetit
undo in its favor. They insist that it
must bu scalded down, and just how
to do this as a concussion on the part of
the senate, un 1 yet not alfoct the miu
who wove insufficiently powerful to get
the schedule tbrougii in the face of tho
most determined opposition iu the seu-
ate, is a matter to winch iMr. Jones is
applying himsolf with much zaal but
wttn little apparent snccos.t. As soon
as the conferees adj Hiroed this after
noon Mr. Jones locked himself up ii.
his room uud assisted by two treasury
experts went over a lot of samples ot
woolen goods nnd duta tbat had beer,
provided, in the hope of reaching
some sort of a solution to the problem.
