would easily have been taken for a

THE GREAT RIOT!
It Reaches St. Louis and
It Strikes th jlissouri Riter.
St. Louis, July 25.
The citizens of St. Louis awakened
yesterday morning with a feeling of
relief. It se med when they had read
the morning papers, that all fear of vi
o'ent results from the agitation of the
past few days was past. But a gener
al feeling of disquietude wa3 noticea
ble in all places where men who think
themselves the leaders of social organ
ization congregate. The anxious ques
tion that was passed from lip to lip
was, "What will the secret governors
of the laborers do?" There was a very
apparent general distrust of what this
secret society would do, but there was
also an equally manifest general de
termination to preserve the integrity
of society at all hazards. Men seemed
to be aware of the gravity of the situ
ation, and with this wariness was a
of determination. It seemed during
the day that the strikers themselves
had become imbued with the idea that
they were being made the tools of an
unlawful body, and among them the
general tenor of conversation was hos
tile to tiny submission to the orders of
the Commune. Rumors were afloat,
and to be heard at all the street cor
ners, of a generally contemplated strike
among all the industrial classes; and
many were the threats of the agents
of the Internationalists that this strike
should be made the death-knell of all
existing conditions of civilization.
A noticable feature of this state of
affairs was the almost ubiquitous pres
ence of men who, in ordinary times,
would be deemed lit candidates for the
rock-pile. Idlers and vagabonds of all
descriptions were to be seen (and smelt)
blowing obscene clouds from Qlthy
pipes, while they bent their heads to
gether in foul conspiracy to burn, kill
among tiii: kist citizens,
by which is meant the honest and in,
diistrious classes", there were frequent
temperate expressions of sympathy
with the men who ;ue supposed to
lie suffering from the economical op-,
pression of their . employers. But a
sentiment of universal deprecation of
the incendiary doctrines preached by
the lawless and turbulent classes was
to be observed. In short.it wa3 plain
ly to be seen that, as far as the strik
ing employees of the railroads .and
their immediate friends are concerned,
there was no longer any desire left but
to get out of an uncomfortable position
with the least loss of self respect.
GEN. JEFF. C. DAVIS
was to cuine in shortly on a train from
Leavenworth, accompanied by a bat
teryof artvlery and a full regiment of
United States troops. As a counter ir
ritant to this information, half a hun
dred men around the depot were ready
to assure and did assure, the reporter
that the train of cars bearing Gen.
Davis command had been ditched and
could not pjssibly arrive in the city.
Where they were ditched and how they
were ditched was an entirely different
thing. On this subject no one could
say anything further than that the
"accident" had happened somewhere
between Sedalia and Leavenworth.
however, was shortly shown in all its
deformity, when, about 5:15, a train
of the Missouri Pacific rolled into the
depot, carrying in its foremost cars
Gen. Jeff, C. Davis and his officers,
and in the rear two flat cars, on which
were stationed the like number of gat
tling guns, and some 200 non-commissioned
officers and men of the United
States Army the 4th infar.try.
No sooner had the train come to a
stadd-still than a crowd gathered
around it. "What you come hre for?
You going to fight the strikers?" and
a dozen other similar queries were at
once addressed to the soldiers by the
onlookers. But no quest iotis could ov
ercome the diciplined indifference of
the United States troops. They only
knew two things: 1. They were dusty
and thirsty, and 2. They were to obey
After awhile the reporter got tired
of talking to these impassable boys in
blue, and made a raid into Ihf officer's
car. Here he found several shoulder
strttpped gentlemen, who. his business
being explained, treated him with the
utmost courtesy, but who, in obedience
to the regulations in such cases made
and provided, had nothing to offer the
news gatherer beyond a courteous "We
know nothing." Suddenly a
LITTLE MAN IN A DUSTER,
and with a most suggestive plaster on
his left cheek, appeared upon the
"I want to see Gen. Davis," said the
"I'm Gen. Davis," was the abrupt re
sponse. "Well General I wan', to know the
number of men ou have with you;
whether any troops are following, and
w hetheryou met with any obstructions
on the road.
The answeas to these somewhat en
cyclopedic questions were epitomized
with soldierly brevity. Said the Gen
eral, "I've brought 216 men and two
Catling guns; my orders are to pro
tect the property of the United States
and nothing more. You understand
me; nothirg more sir, and I want you
to put it down in your paper just so."
"Certainly General. But don't you
expect other men down.
"I expect some more men down in
the morning. But I want you to be
sure and state it just as I tell you. We
come down here solely to protect the
property of the United States.'
With this final dictum thcH General
waved the reporter away, and that
funcionary of the press speedily sought
fresh fields and pastures new for the
exercise of his genius. He soon found
something whereon to browse. At the
time spoken of the soldiers were busy
unloading the flat cars of the guns,
while a dense crowd of the curious was
doing its best to create an obstruction
to the work, an obstruction that was
perfectly idle and good-humored in its
fashion, and which was carefully kept
within the bounds of propriety by Col.
D. II. Armstrong and a solitary police
man. It was funny to observe these
peaceable officials industriously doing
their duty, while a solemn sentinel
marched up and down with his mus
ket on his shoulder, and apparently
Xerfectly indifferent to anything but
having a clear gang way between the
guns and the people.
TO THE ARSENAL.
About fifteen minutes of hard labor
sufficed to bring the guns down to ter
ra fir ma ar.d to hitch them on the rear
of a baggage wagon, into w hich was
piled the sundries of a soldier's camp
equipment, some two dozen warriors,
and the Globe Democrat reporter, who
is indebted to Maj. Grimes for the
privilege of thus riding down towards
the Arsenal. The crowd attending the
cortege was generally good humored,
though some of its members got off
sundry . witticisms on the reporter,
some of them cordially inviting him to
"iake hold of a musket and prove his
Then came a dusty march down to
the Arsenal, in the course of which the
officers ordered their men down from
their lofty perches on the baggage
wagon and made them foot tt through
the pulverized macadam, much to their
THE MOB ATTACK TIIE POLICE.
Chicago, July 25.
It is reported a mob came in contact
with the police on Twenty-second
street; that the latter, being assailed
with stones and sticks, fired their re
volvers over the heads of the crowd
and for a time quelled the disturbance.
It is also stated that they have been
reinforced and will clean out the riot
ers. A branch of the crowd went this
morning to E. W. Blatchford's white
lead and oil works on Fulton and Greek
streets, where two hundred men are
employed, and demanded that the place
be closed up. This being refused they
began stoning the building, breaking
windows, and committing other depre
dations. The latter part of the night
passed without trouble of any kind.
THE RIOT AT TWENTY-SECOND STREET.
The report of a riot at Twenty-second
street was correct. But two po
licemen were injured, and tliey not se
riously. The gang are of about the
same material as that of yesterday,
and dispersed when the police fired at
them. Other branches of the so-called
workingmen have scattered all over the
town. The Union Stock rolling mills
and malleable iron works on the south
side have been closed, and their five
hundred hands are idle. The mob
were making at last accounts for Mc
Cormick's great reaper works, and will
there meet opposition. A gang are
running street cars into the stables on
the south side as fast as they come in.
The railroads are in statu quo, with
passenger trains and mails running.
Except in a few cases many who were
compelled to quit work yesterday have
gone back to-day. The north side mob
is the most disorderly and busy, break
ing windows wherever resisted. The
Phenix distillery has been seized bv
them, and the proprietors have called
for United State3 troops. Strikers
drove the police back from the North
Side rolling mills, and they were com
pelled to return to their station. Gen.
Torance, commanding the militia here,
has been notified that many arrests
have been made, chiefly of vagabonds
and thieves who constitute the crowd.
The troops will arive this afternoon
from the Indian country. Swearing in
of special police is progressing rapidly
Some sailors struck last night, but this
movement meets with little success.
About two hundred anil fifty veterans
are now enrolled. Vast numbers are
said to be assembling in the lumber j
districts. All saloons on the "West Side '
are closed. Many others are also shut j
up. There has been no incendiarism
yet. Early this morning fifteen or
twenty roughs boarded the outgoing
train on the Illinois Central and com-
J pelled the engineer to back up and re
: turn An attempt was made to stop
! the dummy from the stock yards to
day, but the conductor, with revolver
in hand, defied the mob. The strikers
ditched an incoming train from Omaha
at Sixteenth street last night,
freight cars were thrown off.
Sax Francisco, July 20.
During the day there has been a
stream of citizens pouring into the
rooms of the committee of safety and
all available force at the disposal of the
committee has been doubled or tripled.
An appeal has been addressed by Will
iam J. Coleman, president of the com
mittee, tto workingmen, calling upon
them to aid in supression of the riot.
Invitations have also been distributed
by the committee among all good citi
zens, inviting them to attand a meet
ing of the committee at Horticultural
hall at G:30 p. m. tonight. Resolutions
drawn up uy the committee of ten of
the peoples reform and anti-Chinese
parly will be introduced at the con
vention which meets at Crusader's
hall, repudiating any connection with
rioters and pledging the convention
to assist the authorities in preservation
a battle in progress.
Special dispatch to the Bee.
Chicago, July 25.-3:15 p. m. The
climax is approaching. There has been
street fighting since last night. The

of the G. A. It. and a section of artil
lery have been ordered to the front. The
mob holds control from Sixteenth and
Halsted streets to the city limits. As
fast as they are driven back they col
lect in other places and move up. So
far five policemen have been wounded
two it is thought, fatally. Five com
munists have been killed. A lively
time is expected to-night.

PROSPECTS OF A GREAT FAMINE
Pittsburg, July 2G.
Pittsburg lies under the overhang
ing shadow of a great famine. The P.
C. railroad will certainly not yield,
and until the back of the strike is bro
ken no provisions can reach the city.
The papers do not mention the fact
that troops are concentrating, and the
country presents the appearance of an
army encamped. This force can be
thrown into the city by railroads in an
EFFECT OF TIIE STRIKE.
is beginning to be pretty generally felt
in Omaha, ami is becoming mora se
rious from day to day. Business of all
kinds is fast seeking stagnation basis,
owing to the freight blocade that has
extended all over the country. A re
porter of the Bee yesterday took occa
sion to call on some of the leading
wholesale houses and business men to
learn to what extent they were being
effected by the strike. Among the
wholesale grocers he called on Morgan
& Gallagher, Pundt, Meyer & Raapke,
Whitney, Clark & Co., ar.d Steele &
Johnson, and J. J. Brown & Bros., and
was informed by all of them that they
had large lots of goods on the road all
the time, and of course the strike was
consequently interfering with their
business, although they were? filling
orders for the west as usual and doing
quite a lively trade in that direction.
They had received no goods for the
last two or three days, and it would
not be long before their stocks would
be broken in certain staple articles,
especially sugar, a scarcity in which is
already being felt. One dealer assert
ed that if the strike continued there
would not be a pound of sugar to be
had in Nebraska inside of ten days.
Other articles that were in equal de
mand would soon be played cut'

WHAT IS THOUGHT or TIIE STRIKE.
New York, July 2G.
A cable from London says extraor
dinary anxiety is felt in all ciicles con
cerning the distui bances in the United
States. The suddenness, rapidity and
general extent of the strikes aro
regarded as surprising and unexam
pled. The strikes have made a deep
and more painful impression in En
gland than any event since the out
break of the war in 1861. As yet
neither the English people or newspa
pers have been able to form any clear"
theory or realization as to the cause of
the outWeak. The Daily Telegraph,
however, thinks that the corruption
and mismanagement of railway man
agers have given to employes the temp
tations and opportunity. The effect
of the strike must be calamities to
American interests abroad.
The Herald's correspondent at Ber
lin telegraphs that intense interest pre
vails in the German capital regarding
the strke. Most of the papers have
daily editorials on the subject. The
Socialist's leaders are loud in their
eulogies of the iaartyred Molly Ma
guires, and to show their sympathy for
the strikers have opened subscriptions
in their favor.

Sound Advice to the Business Men of
New York Tribune.
Recent news from Europe does nut
indicate a speedy termination of llu
war; on the contrary, it warrants the
belief that shipments of grain from th'.
Black Sea will be very small and that
the enormous consumption of product
will sensibly affect demand and price,
in European markets.
POSSIBLE UNFAVORABLE EFFECTS O
As yet, the war has been of sma"
benefit to American producers and
is beginning to be understood that th
industries of European nations were '
