The Strike and Riots.
The sensation of the past two weeks has
been the great railroad strikes of the Amer
ican Railway Union directed against tbe
Pullman Company. The cause ol the
strike is much as follows:
In the first week of May there were em
nloved in the car manufacturing depart
ment at Pullman, 111., about3.oMpersons.
On May 7th a committee of the workmen
asked for a cessation of certain shop
grievances and objected to a proposed re
action of wanes. On the company not
acceeding to the question of wagei the
men went out on a strike on May inn,
2500 going out and only 600 remaining at
their places. The company not being able
to run the work; wi& 600 men. closed
down and laid them off. No work has
since been done in the shops.
The American Railway union nei.t took
up the fight, and President Debs declared
a boycott on all trains which were made
up, or partly made up, of Pullman
As everyone knows, the Pullman company
does not sell Us sleeping car butrunsit
over the diflerent lines under the direct
control of the Pullman company. The
first trouble was. as the principal trouble
has since been, at Chicago. At many
other points west, where the J;
ion is strong, the strikers have prevented
the running of trains, but Chicago, with
its dozens of trunk lints has been the
gtage ot many exciting events in this great
29th the strike besan to assume
the proportions that have since required
the presence of U. S. soldiers. The boy
cott of Pullman cars had been declared by
the Union and at a conference of the rail
road presidents of 23 trunk lines it was de
cided to resist the efforts of the Railway
Union. Telegrams from the Northern Pa
cific and Santa Fe stated that every em
plovee had quit work. No Pullman sleep
er had left Los Angelos or San Diego that
day. An attempt was made to handle
trains with new men but in most cases it
was unsuccessful. On most of the grtat
lines a few trains were moving. One of
the gTeat leatures of the strike was begin
ning to show in the tieing up of the stock
yards. The cold storage and refrigerator
oars could not be moved and in the eastern
cities beef was rising and selling 5 to 10
cents higher. California fruits were not
being shipped and fabulous prices were
complicated feature was beginning to
show itself. The boyeotters were interfer
ing with trains containing U. S. mail cars
and the authorities at -Washington were
notified. . t .
The first act of violence in the history of
the strike occurred on Friday, June -8,
where the engineer and fireman of an Il
linois Central surburban train were driven
from their engine by a mob of 200 men and
pelted with rocks and bricks. It was said
that there were 17,850 men on strike.
On Monday, the 2rd, a determined effort
was made by the railroad officials to move
their trains. Deputies armed with riot
guns were sent out with trains but the
strikers did not let many pass. In the
suburban districts, trains with passengers
suffering from hunger and thirst, were
stopped and the railroad yards were alive
with strikers. Some arrests were made by
U. S. officials for the stoppage of mail
As a result ot the tie-up coal was getting
scarce in Chicago and many plants were
shutting down. The ice manufactories
were closing operations, and much loss
was threatening to the dressed meat deal
ers, who oould not ship their meat and
could scarcely get ioe enough to preserve
it, '
On Tuesday Uncle Sam took a hand and
marched troops from Fort Sheridan into
the city of Chicago. Several skirmishes
between the city authorities and the strik
ers resulted tavorably to the strikers. U.
S. troops were under orders to suppress
the disturbances at Chicago and in Califor
nia and Colorado.
There was riotisg at Blue Island all the
morning and afternoon. Revolvers were
frequently drawn, but there was no serious
clash until the strikers had gathered in suf
ficient numbers to drive back both the
United States and Cook county deputies.
Then about 2,000 of them charged and the
deputies were driven away.
Marshal Arnold, who waß on the grounds
in person, at once telegraphed District At
torney Milohrist to take steps to have the
Fifteenth sent to his assistance, and the
Sheriff's force applied to Governor Altgeld
lor troops.
On Thursday, the sth, the railroads were
claiming victory. Trains under the pro
tection of Federal troops were moving
freely and many arrests were made of
strikers. Next day 100,000 idle workman
were too many for tbe limited number of
soldiers and many were the victories of tbe
strikers. Cars were burned, trains stopped
and discontinued, switches tuned, and all
the skillful tricks of veteraa trainmen re
sorted to.
Governor Altgeld of Illinois addressed a
long telegram to President Cleveland ob
jecting to the presence in his state of U. S.
troops, and Cleveland sent the following
in answer:
WASHINGTON, D. C., July 5, )
Hon. John P. Altgeld,Governor of Illinois,
Springfield, 111.:
Federal troops were sent to Chicago in
strict accordance with the Constitution and
laws of the United States, upon tbe de
mand of the Postoffice Department that
obstruction of the mails should be remov
ed and upon the representation of the ju
dicial officers of tbe United States that pro
cess of the Federal Courts could not be ex
ecuted through tbe ordinary means and
abundant proof that conspiracies existed
against oommeroe between the States.
To meet these conditions which are
clearly within the province of Federal au
thority, the presence of Federal troops in
tbe city of Chicago was deemed not only
proper but necessary, and there has been
no intention of thereby interfering with
the plain doty of tbe local authorities to
preserve tbe peace of the city.
On Saturday, July 7th, the mob of strik
ers begin the lawless work which destroy
ed tbonsands of dollars worth of property.
Although opposed by 10,000 militia, regu
lar soldiers, poiice, deputies, etc., they
burned 300 cars belonging to the Panhan
dle Co. and other roads suffered severely.
At the stock-yards that night abont fifty
toughs, few of whom were railroad men,
were sulking from point to point and set a
large number of fires. Their method was
thoroughly unique. Loading several hand
cars with buckets of "waste," and oil they
wonld glide aronnd among the cars in the
darkness, lighting wads of the inflammable
staff, which would be thrown into the open
doors of the cars as they passed by them.
Fires sprung np on every band and no or
ganized effort on the part of the police
seemed to be under way to intercept them.
This is the banner district of the city, if
nst of the country for all around toughs,
and it is as much as much as a man's lite
is worth to interfere with them.
Troops were moving south; company
after company in heavy marohing order,
moving to the turbnlent districts from the
center of the city.
The aggregate of the losses to the rail
roads will be enormous. Miles of their
tracks have been mined by the fierce heat,
hundreds of switch and signal towers with
their expensive mechanism utterly ruined.
Thousands of cars and untold quantities of
merchandise of every imaginable descrip
tion have fed the flames and gorged the
larders of thieves; valuable locomotives
have been wrecked and disabled; miles of
tangled wires and prostrate poles litter the
Telephone, telegraph, electric light and
fire alarm wires were the especial object of
attack, the plugging of tire alarm boxes
constituting a new and doubly dangerous
element in the tremendous wave of incen
diarism then sweeping over the southwest
section of the city, preventing as it did.
Dotice being received of the starting of
fires until, with the poor water supply in
theso outlying districts, a tire bad attained
such headway that it could not be stopped
exctp through lack of further material on
which to feed.
The anarchist in Chicago received ft snd
den check on Saturday the 7th when a
company of militia under Capt. Mair drove
back a mob of folly 8000 strikers. The
trouble occurred at the 49th itreet crossing
of the gTand trunk lines about 2 o'clock in
the afternoon. Employee* of the railroad*
were removing wrecks when a mob of 8000
made them desist. Capt. Mair with 3S
men were ordered to the *P°t where they
found the police in ineffectual struggle
with the mob. Mair deemed it advisable
to draw off the railroad bands and give the
mob possession before they were too much
infuriated but the violence of the strikers
did not permit of this and Mair wm forced
to order a volley fired into their midst.
The men scattered like sheep before the
leaden hail, followed as it was by a bayo
net charge. How many men were killed
is unknown but there were at least a dozen
and many were injured.
After the action of the troops on Satur
day the heart seemed taken out of the
strikers. Less trouble was experienced in
rnnning trains and many strikers applied
for positions with the railroads. On Mon
day, President Cleveland isaued another
proclamation which covered seven states
and two territories and it was followed by
determined and successful efforts on the
part of the trunk lines to get trains
through. Eastern roads which had stop
ped the sale of tickets for the west in
tructed agents to again place them on sale
On Tuesday, President Debs of the
strikers was "arrested in company with
other A. R. U. officials and placed under
SIO,OOO bail, on charges of conspiracy and
obstruction of mails. The Federal Jury
returned indictments sgainst all the ar
rested officials.
An attempt was made by Debs to call
out the Pittsburg railroad men was a fiz
ile. The P. <k W. was the only road that
there was any strike attempted on and it
only lasted 15 minutes.
The strike seems to be about over,
Debs attempt to get out railroaders
generally has been a failuie.
At Sacramento, Wednesday, the strikers
killed four men by derailing a train con
taining the militia.
The Pullman official? say that they will
not arbitrate.
As near as could be estimated 16,u0u
men went on a strike in Chicago on
nesday in answer to Soverign's call. He
expects 100,000.
An Editorial Excursion.
Two-hundred and sixty Pennsylvania
editors, the majority of whom were accom
panied by member# of their families, left
the Broad Street station of Pennsylvania
R R. in Ph ; l'a. on Tuesday morning tbe
2nd inst for Asbury Park. The crowd oc
cupied a special train of six coaches pro
vided by the P. R. R. Co., the ride across
that alleged foreign state called New
Jersey was a pleasant one, and by noon
the excursionists were housed in the hotels
of the handsomest summer resort on tbe
coast. , ...
That afternoon the state ass n held a
business meeting at one of the hotel" and
the national Editorial Ass'n, then in ses
sion in the Auditorium, and consisting of
delegates from all the state ass'ns. invited
the state ass*n to take part in their pro
ceedings. which invitation was accepted.
Six hundred delegates to the National
Convention were present: two-hundred
York state editors arrived Wednesday so
that altogether there were over a thousand
editors in the town during the week, and
tbe daily meetings were well attended.
Asbury Park contains a resident popula
tion of about five-thousand, its street# are
wide, well paved and level; it has three
hundred hotels, some of which will accom
modate a thousand guest>, and the best
beach we have ever seen. The bathing is
delightful; the constant passing of steam
ers and sailing vessels vary the ocean
scene, amusements of all kinds have been
provided, it is a temperance town, it is as
quiet and orderly as the adjoining borough
of Ocean Grove; and taken altogather is a
model place of its kind.
It i» largely patronized bv New Yorkers
of moderate means, who take their famil
ies there for their summer outing, and the
usual summer population is 50,000.
The visiting editors will ever retain
pleasant recollections of Asbory Park and
alio of its people, who entertained them
with a concert, an excursion to Monmouth
battle-field, a bicycle race, and as grand a
display of fire works as we have ever
The convention itself, with its essays,
and social intercourse was one ot inspira
tion and education, a benefit to all.
THE oonferrees of the Senate and House
at Washington have looked horns over the
Tariff bill passed by the Senate, and no
agreement seems likely at present.

to the school building. Ilence forward
in the matter of generous hospitality
North Liberty will as example and
illustration of "where there is a will there
is a way." Sunshine and tbe greetings ol
old friends without, and flowers and
tasteful decorations within the church, all
had a part in preparing each one to enjoy
the services which were introduced by
devotional exercises led by Mrs. Colbert.
The first honr of every session was a
prayer and praise service bringing bene
diction upon all the business of the day
A welcome was cordially extended by
Miss Ella Moore of North Liberty. In
the name of the helpful, useful Marthas
who have said: "We must see that the
comfort of our guests is first secured;"
and of the Marys who have said: "We
must seize this "opportunity of learning
all we can of this blessed work;" in behalf
of these the weloome was heartily given.
This welcome was responded to by i i*s
Eva McJunkin. Our hearts were lifted
to our Heavenly Father a? we listened to
the beautiful duet, "Rock of Ages." A
new feature at this meeting was tbe Pres
byterial Record, a paper edited and read
by Mrs. W. S. Bell. It evinced much
thought and careful preparation, lack of
space will prevent all but the motto of this
worthy production: "Pray, Plan, Push.
Miss Ada Welch conducted an interest
ing Christian Endeavor Symposium. She
explained the need of the organization.
The pledge with the several committees
was ably discussed by the young ladies
The deepest interest always centers m
the missionaries, who seem as visible
links between Christian effort and heath
en need, and in them is seen not only
their own work but the vast mission field
they represent. Mrs. Dodd with seven
years' experience amoug the Laos people,
told of her work teaching the Bible to ihe
Laos women and how eager they are to
grasp the simple truths of the Gospel.
Said they had been praying for the last
year tor more missionaries. Miss Carlon,
who expects to leave soon for Siam, was
then introduced and spoke very earnestly,
taking as the keynote of her address, why
should I not go to the Foreign Field,
answt red this important question from
our Lord's commands and promises.
Miss Jessie Wortman unfolded the bright
side of mission work amoug the poer
whites of Concord, N. C
Prominent in the session was tbe Child

of which was to urge increased diligence
