TAYLOR’S NEARLY LYNCHED.
Masked Men Were Waiting for Them at
Brookfield, Mo., June 30.-—A lynch

day. Sheriff Barton was expected in
from St. Louis with George and Will

for the murder of Gus Meeks and fam
ily, near Browning. But the sheriff
had been notified by telegraph at
Shclbina that there was danger should
he bring his prisoners to Brookfield,
and he stopped-at Macon City and
placed them in jail there. When the
7:45 p. m. train arrived there were
fully 1,000 people at the depot, and in
the crowd werc'many strangers.
As the train pulled in fifty masked
men, well armed, rode down the Main
street to the depot, and the excite
ment ran high. It was supposed that
the Taylors were on the train, and
when the opposite was learned a sigh
of relief went up from part of the
crowd and the strangers looked dis
appointed. They were a determined
lot of men and came here with a pur
pose which would have surely been
carried out had not Sheriff Barton
been warned by some friends here.
The strangers had been noticed com
ing into town quietly for two hours
before train time, but their purpose
was not fully understood until the
masked riders arrived.

stated that they were all from Brown

The mob finally decided not to go
to Macon on the 10 o'clock train.
They realized that their departure
could be telegraphed to Macon and
the officers there would have sulficieut
time to prepare for them.

their discharge, and the employment of others
to take their places. All the powers and au

Kansas City, Mo., June 30.—The
boycott on Pullman ears on the Santa
•Fe railway, which was enforced in
Kansas City with complete success by
.the American Railway Union from 9
a. m. until 6 p. m. yesterday, was not
successful to-day, the Santa Fe com
pany having- sent out its passenger
trains on time with the usual number
of Pullman cars. The freight busi
ness, however, of the Santa Fe com
pany in Kansas Git.y and Argentine is
totally stopped on account of the
strike of the switchmen. In fact the
company has refused to receive freight
excepting subject to an indefinite de
lay and is doing no freight business
whatever here to-day. One switch en
gine out of about twenty is at work
in the Argentine yards and it is only
handling cars used by or destined to
the Kansas City Consolidated Smelt
ing and Refining company.
Twenty-six United States deputy
marshals under command of Hubert

THE GREAT RAILROAD STRIKE
ROCK ISLAND SYSTEM PARALYZED.
Reports of Walk Outs Are Touring in

ed Out—Santa F'e Hiring New
Men and Calls for Moro
Chicago, July 2. — The apparent
lightening of the boycott of the
American Railway union on Pullman
cars yesterday was seemingly but a
mere temporary rest in the gigantic
movement. To-day the reports from
all points indicate that the struggle
has been renewed with fresh force by
the union and that the strike is in
volving fresh lines and more seriously
crippling the railroad business of the
West than ever.
None of the general managers of
the various systems now make any
positive predictions as to the immedi
ate future. Mr. Frye of the Santa Fe
declares that the prospect on his lino

freight service is completely para

who belong to the A. R. U. have re
ceived an order to strike at noon
Sunday, and if it is obeyed, as it
doubtless will be, the local situation
will become serious.
In Chicago the stock yards switch
men are all out and the business of
the yards and the packing houses is
completely paralyzed. The Rock Is
land is tied up tightly to-day and the
Illinois Central is paralyzed worse
than ever. Strikers have begun re

In St. Louis, 2,000 yardmen have

slightest improvement and on the
Northern Pacific the promised lifting

From many points in the West and
Northwest come fresh reports of

growing darker, particularly ' at
smaller towns before unaffected.
That the American Railway union
has more strength than had been sup
posed is now unquestioned, and where
it has been weak it has been materi
ally assisted by sympathizers in other
railroad orders, many of these latter
acting in direct defiance of their
chiefs. Roth sides are evidently pre
paring for fresh moves, and the next
day or two is likely to have sensation
ROCK ISLAND T1ED-UP.
That liig System Almost Paralyzed at
the Chicago End,
Chicago, July 2.—The packing
houses and stock yards district is par
alyzed, all of the switching crews,
300 men, having quit work last night.
Only one engine was in service to
daj-, and it was used to handle pack
ing house products for roads which do
not use Pullman cars. Xo stock was
delivered to consignees this morning
by many of the roads, and several
have declined to accept shipments.
All was quiet at the yards to-day.
The tie-up of the llock Island road
was almost complete at the Chicago
end to-day. The switchmen, switch
tenders and tower men went out
almost to a man, over 400 stopping
work at 7 o’clock this morning. They
were not expected to go out until
noon and their une.\peeted action left
the road in bad shape.
■General Manager Egan of the gen
eral managers' association bureau and
General Manager St. John of the
Koek Island road were in consultation
to-day with Sheriff Gilbert at the lat
ter’s office. The result was that the
sheriff soon began swearing in dep
When the Monon mail train reached
the state line at Hammond, Ind., at
10:42 o'clock last night, it was sig
naled to stop. The engineer had
scarcely done so when a crowd of
strikers surrounded him. Then a
striker took the place of the regular
Monon men and while the strikers
yelled the train was pulled slowly i
into the city. It was run on a switch j
and will be left there until the strike j
The Western Indiana tracks at the
state line are completely blocked. Five i
passenger trains are standing there
one behind the other—four trains be
longing to the Erie and one to the
Monos. The first train has been
there since 4:40 yesterday. The pas
sengers are tired and hungry.
The Illinois Central suburban ser
vice is completely tied up. The en
gineers and firemen tc.-uay refused to
take out their engines.
Employes of the Fort Wayne rail
road began quitting work in the
suburban district to-dav. One or two
trains were manned by officers of the
road and kept in service, but traffic
was practically suspended.
Vice President Howard of the
American Railway union to-day issued
an order tying up the Milwaukee and
St. Paul road in all branches at 6
o’clock this evening. An order was
al«o issued to tie up the Rig Four at
The Chicago and Northwestern re-,
ports to-day that its passenger service
is moving without interruption.
Sheriff Gilbert sent forty special
deputies and many regular deputies
to the border of the county at
the Indiana state line and near Ham
mond, Ind. There is considerable suf
fering among the passengers on the
trains held at Hammond which have
not been moved to-day. There is no
water on the trains nor any to be
found near the trains. Women and
children arc complaining bitterly.
Twenty deputy sheriffs who started
for Blue Island were stalled a long
time at Fifty-fifth street. Superin
tendent Hubbell threw the switches
but the strikers threw them back and
forbid any interference by officers of
the road. The deputies walked
around and viewed the situation but
took no action. A large crowd gath
ered but no violence was offered.
The last train to reach the blockade
was a mail train, and some of the
strikers advised that it be allowed to
proceed, but the switchmen were
firm and the train was held.
WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY.
The General Managers’ association
issued the following to-day: “There
is no attempt made to deny that the
strike is widespread and is serious.
This embarasses the freight traffic of
the West to the most serious extent of
any strike since the Eastern labor
troubles in 1377 and JS78. The
companies have no idea of entering
into a compromise with the strikers,
on any basis whatever. The railroad
companies fail to see the justice of
the position taken by the A. E. U. of
fighting Mr. Pullman over the heads
of the railroad companies, who have
no control over Mr. Pullman’s move
ments or his manufacturing business.
The men who are now on a strike are
considered as employes who have re
signed their positions and who are
not anxious for work. Any men
who desire employment under
the railroad companies center
ing in Chicago and who are
competent will be furnished po
sitions and will be afforded all the
protection that lies in the power of
the companies, police of the city7 of
Chicago, sheriff of Cook county and
the state of Illinois. Men are now
being hired in the East and brought
to Chicago to take the places of men
who will not work. I has been
charged by the A. R. U. that the
general managers' association is im
porting men from Canada. This
statement is absolutely false. The
railroad companies do not propose to
employ any men to take the places of
the men now on strike, unless such
men are American citizens and where
ever we can find a man who wants to
work, to take the place of a man who
will not work, whether the substi
tute comes from New York or Cali
fornia we propose to give him a job
and see that he is protected.”
ON THE SANTA FE.
General Manager I rey Thinks the Situ
ation Is improving.
Topeka, Kan., July 2.—General
Manager Frey says that the strike
situation on the Santa Fe system
shows a decided improvement over
yesterday, and he believes that it will
grow better hourly until the final dis
solution of the strike, which he is
confident is not far off. Passenger
trains were reported moving on time
this morning except in Colorado and
New Mexico, where the strikers still
have possession, although last night
the company moved three trains with
Pullman equipment out of La Junta.
The management is not undertak
ing to move freight trains, and their
agents are instructed to accept freight
only subject to delay and no perish
able freight at all.
Referring to the statement that
10.000 men were out ou the Santa Fe
system, Mr. Frey said that he did not
estimate the number of actual strikers
on the entire system at to exceed
1.000 men. An entire train crow
could be forced out by the refusal of
a single fireman to perform his duty,
hut only the fireman could be classed
as a striker.
Denver, June 30.—Train No. 8 on
the Santa Fe, after a wait of twenty
four hours, left last night, a fireman
willing to fill the deserted post hav
ing been found. All A. R. U. men on
the Santa Fe road at this point have
stopped work on the order of Presi
dent Debs. No trains with Pullmans
have arrived on the Santa Fe. The
Santa Fe California train over the
Colorado Midland was sent out to-day
hut is not likely to get beyond Colo
rado City where the Midland em
ployes have joined the strike.
Florence, Ivan.. June 30.—All the
Santa Fe employes here except the
station agent, cashier, roadmaster
and roadhouse foreman are out.
Twelve federal officers are here, but
all is quiet.
Ottawa, Kan.. June 30.—The Amer
ican Railway union shopmen here are
out and the Santa Fe shops are idle.
The yard crews have not yet struck,
but they have nothing to do as no
trains are moving.

PULLMAN TALKS FREELY.
The Trouble Now Beyond tile Car Com
pany—The l'iglit of the Bonds.
Chicago, July 2.—George M. Pull
man, president of the Pullman Palace
car company, who is now at his home
here said last night of the
great boycott: “The strike is
no longer a fight against the
Pullman company alone. It
has spread and grown beyond us until
now the Pullman strike is a subordin
ate feature. The railroads are now
trying whether or not they have the
right to control their own roads and
manage their own property. While
the strike was confined to our com
pany we at no time asked the rail
roads to assist us, and when, a few
days ago, the general managers of
the great roads centering in Chicago
decided to oppose the American Rail
way union they asked neither
advice nor assistance from
the Pullman company. It was
plainly, distinctly and decidedly their
fight, as was patent to everybody. In
reality this movement is a demonstra
tion of anarchy. Here are men
organized and banded together at
tacking and endeavoring to crush in
stitutions which are necessary and
are operated for the welfare and con
venience of the general public. We
have done all that could be done—all
that we could do at least—for the
comfort and welfare of our employes.
As high wages were paid as could
possibly he afforded in these hard
times. So far as I can see, there was
nothing left undone for the good of

minal men struck last night and as a
result of conferences held anil orders
from headquarters the switchmen on
both sides of the river refused this
morning to handle any cars whatso
ever and freight movement immedi
ately stopped. Passenger traffic,
however, moved as usual, all trains
leaving on time, not with the assist
ance of the striking American Rail
way union men, however, but with
the aid of the Terminal association
yardmaster and assistants, who had
never been allowed to join any labor
The strikers at this point now num
ber in the neighborhood of 2,000 men.
These include the switchmen of the
Terminal association, 200 in number,
and also tiiose in all tlie individual
railroad yards, between 1,500 and

came general the idle men began to

Chicago, Juno 38.—Lhe Illinois Cen

strike has precipitated a coal famine
on the steamboat docks, and the busi

Arrangements are being make to put
hard coal on some of the tugs that can
use it. The strike came so suddenly
that it found the coal men utterly un
prepared for it, and, while they have
plenty of coal in the switch yards of
the Illinois Central, they cannot get
it to the docks.

The Mob Makes an Attack on tho Ital
Grenoble, June 28.—At 3 o’clock
yesterday afternoon the Italian cafes
were attacked. A number of Italian
stores were treated in the same man
ner. The mob marched through tho
streets, shouting “Down with tho
Italians.” Several Italians who were
met in the streets were beaten and
kicked. The mob was reinforced and
proceeded to the Italian consulate.
The police vainly tried to check’
the mob. The leaders procured
a ladder, fixed it to the balcony of
the consulate, and several rioters,
headed by a drunken carpenter,
entered the consulate, tore up tho
Italian flag, smashed the escutcheon,
broke the furniture, threw the stat
ues upon tho floor and kicked them
to pieces and, seizing upon two largo,
handsome oil paintings, representing
King Humbert and Queen Margaret of.’
Italy, threw them into the street.
A detachment of military engineers
was summoned and the soldiers
charged upon the mob. After a short
conflict the rioters were driven out of
the consulate, which was then occu
pied by the troops and the prefect
made an apology to the Italian consul.
