GENEBAL WALKOUT POSTPONED.
Federated Trade Unions of Chicago Await- i
Ing the Arrival of President Compcrs.
Passenger Trains Moving Troops Guard
ing Union Pacific Employes Entire
Illinois Militia Ordered Ont.
Chicago, July 10. Peace reigns in
Warsau. The same cannot be said of
Chicago, for the tread of armed men is
still heard in her streets and the wheels
of commerce still lag at the bid of the A.
R. 17. Nevertheless the warcloud which
has overhung this city and this land for
the past 10 days show distinct signs of
lifting. Instead of stories of additional
railroads tied up at various points
throughout the country Monday's dis
patches almost without exception
brought advices of strikers returning to
work and an increase resumption of
traffic, amounting in some places to a
return to normal conditions. The day
in Chicago passed without a serious con
flict between the roiters and the armed
forces now on duty here. The feature of
the day was the action early Monday
morning, after an all night's session of
the federated trades union of Chicago, in
deciding to call out all classes of labor
on Tuesday at 4 o'clock unless George
M. Pullman should have agreed before
the meridian of that day to settle the
differences between his company and
his striking employes by arbitration or
General Walkout Postponed.
For reasons not known to the public,
Grand Master Workman Sovereigu of
the Knights of Lalxr and his advisers
subsequently decided to iostpone the gen
eral walkout and n paralytic stroke
which they propose to inflict upon the
business of Cliicago until 7 o'clock
Wednesday morning. Late Monday
afternoon the atfiiouuccment was made
that President Samuel Gompers of the
American Federation of Labor has
called a meeting of the executive board
of that body to be held in this city on
Thursday and that he is now enroute
from New York to Chicago. In viow of
this it is not believed that tho federated
trades of Chicago will take precipitate
action before his arrival. As Gompers
cannot reach Chicago before Wednesday
night, it will bo impossible to decide on a
line of action to be pursued before
Thursday and probably if it should
finally be resolved to declare a general
strike of all these combined forces, it
could not be put into effect before Fri
In this connection the
question arises whether or not if Presi
dent Gompers allows himself to be
hauled from New York to Chicago by
nonunion engineers and firemen, his
visit will be cf any particular profit.
One leader in Chicago said that if he did
bo he might as well stay in New York.
Many Would Decline to Obey.
Another feature to be noted iu con
nection with federated labor is the fact
which was developed that there was in
the meeting a large and influential con
servative element, vvhose action had
practically blocked the plans of the
more hotheaded leaders until the latter,
iu the excitement consequent upon the
reading of President Cleveland's procla
mation, were enabled to stampede them
and carry the strike resolution. There
fore there is reason that even if the
order for a general strike goes forth
many of those to whom it is directed
will decline to oley it. So that with
tlio men nlrcady mado idlo ly tlia oft'oot
of the tieup the walkout will not bo

What effect, if any. the action of Vice
President Wickes. of the Pullman com
pany, in refusing in the most positive
manner to even meet a committee to
consider the quetion of arbitration will

leaders and their followers remains to Imj
Monday night's action of the city coun
cil in" rosp?ct to President Cleveland's or
der bringing federal troops to Chicago
was forestalled by a large number of in
dorsements of his action sent him by
prominent business men of the city. The
list of signatures include those of almost
every conspicuous merchant, manufact
urer and banker of Chicago.
PaeiiRrr "rnlim Moving.
Touching the situation in general, it
may be said that in Chicago tho roads
were all doing better than on any pre
vious day since the strike begun. Pas
senger trains were moving with more or
less regularity, and some freight traffic
has been cared for. A large number of
striking freight handlers of the Illinois
Central returned to work, and other
roads noted accession to their operative
At St. Louis, Kansas City and Denver
it was reported that railroad business had
abont returned to normal conditions.
Nashville also reported an improvement.
About the only points at which the strike
managers showed any gain were the
partial walkout of firemen 'at Fort
Scott, the freight men on the Kenawha
and Michigan at Charleston, W. Ya..
and the strike of the A.. R. U. men on
the Big Four at Mattoon. It will thus
be seen that at the lpading railroad
centers the strikers have made percepti
ble losses, while their gains are at com
paratively unimportant points. Regnla-
tions which prevail in the government
building are a near approach to martial
law. Deputy marshals are stationed on
ever- floor and everybody is challenged
who cannot show that he has business in
Managers' Side of the Story.
John 31. Egau of the Association of
Railway General Managers, when asked
for an official statement of The conditions
of the roads represented in that associa
tion, said: "With the exception of two
or three minor instances there was no
trouble or disturbance reported Monday.
All the iinea ran their regular passenger
ana mail trains'and a number of lines
resumed their suburban trains. All of
the lines commenced work in theii
freight yards and many freight trains
were run in and out of the city. The
Union Stockyards company are clearing
their tracks of wreckage and repairing
damage done during the past week.
"The total number of trains that ar
rived were equal to the total moved in
the four days previous. It is true that
trains have been guarded to prevent their
being molested, but the action of the
military towards the mobs and rioters
during the past two days have had a
most salutary effect. The president's
proclamation, together with General
Miles orders, have produced excellent
results. The men who have replaced
the strikers are good men and satisfac
tory to the lines that have emploved
nebs Feels Confident.
President E. V. Debs of the A. R. TJ.,
when seen said: 'We are stronger than
ever: nothing can break our forces but
usurpation and tyranny. I am threat
ened Avith srrest What for? For or
ganizing labor. We say to capital,
Here is our labor and these are our
terms.' Tms is lesral this is tlie snirit
age. Mr. Havemeyer organizes a

, le . lature Ibave acted honorahly and
committed no crime. The United States
, authorities are bringing, themselves into
contempt by their wanton violation of
, a th' constitution The coinmon
people are beginning to understand this.
Capital insists upon looking upon labor
as it did upon slavery, that it has no
right like capital to ask or exact terms.
This is the principal of slavery.
"I want to call the attention of tho J
people of this country to this: The Pull
man strike is not the underlying cause of
this trouble. The people of this country
are paying over $5,000,000 a day in in
terest. This is draining productive in
dustry of its profit and is piling up
money in the money centers. What old
England failed with soldiers in the
Eighteenth century, she is doing now
with the gold standard. Over $200,000.
000 a year goes there to pay .interest. We
are not responsible for the lawless ele
ment and loss of property. Not even dis
ciplined armies have ever been able to
keep this element from rising. We ask
the public to be patient while labor
stands with its back at the door that
leads to serfdom and says to its oppress
ors, 'Thus far and no farther.' It is
better to lose a little now than more in
the end, and with it constitutional lib
erty." At about midnight Monday a crowd of
Poles and Hungarians gathered at Ash
land avenue and the Grand Trunk
tracks and before the authorities were
warned, had torn up several hundred feet
of track. A company from the Second
regiment charged the crowd and dis
persed it after linng several shots. No
one wa3 hurt as far as known.

COST OF GROWING WOOL.
The American Sheep Kaiser Cannot Com
pete With the Australian.
Ignoring the difference in freight
against the American woolgrower, the
Australian woolgrower has the advan
tage of pasture all the year round, the
pasture iu Australia being better in
winter than in summer. Tho wool
grower in Australia rents his laud from
the government for a smaller charge
than the Ohio woolgrower in many cases
pays in taxes alone, and the latter, ow
ing to our rigorous winter climate for
five mouths in the year, feeds his sheep
hay and grain, nearly the whole of
which is labor. It costs nothing to grow
hay or grain. Nature does that.
Tho main cost to the farmer of hay
and grain is in the preparing of the
land, in cultivating, in harvesting and
the feeding, which are all labor, and
which represent 90 per cent of the whole
cost of production, the remaining 10 per
cent representing interest and taxes.
Under these conditions the cost of rais
ing wool in the United States is at least
11 cents per pound in actual outlay
greater than the cost of raising the same
class of wool in Australia or the Argen
tine Republic, and the McKinley tariff
law placed the duty of 11 cents per
pound on imported unwashed wool to
put tho American woolgrower on even
terms with his foreign competitor. The
latter has advantages of cheap land, of
climatic condition and cheaper freight,
which to him are fully equivalent to 11
cents per pound.

THE SUN SHINES.
NEW YORK PAPER OWNS UP TO
It Helped to Elect Grover Cleveland as
7jTsident and Now Tears Its Candidate to
Pieces Facts That Ought to Have Been
Discovered Year Ago.
Tho exposure by the New York Sun
May 2G cf the socialistic teachings of
Grover Cleveland deserves more than a '
mere passing recognition. Only two
years ago The Sun waged a vigorous
warfare against the prosperity of the ,
United States by advocating the election '
of Mr. Cleveland to the office of presi
dent of the United States. It did so
largely by creating class discrimination,
and its cry of "No force bill! No negro '
domination! will be long remembered.
It set the south against the north. It
advocated a policy that has damaged
and destroyed the mauufacrurine and
the wage earning interests in both sec
tions. It descended to the level of the
pro-English and anti-American organs
that disgrace tho American press of to
day, yet which vere successful in the
campaign of 1892.
It is indeed gratifying to know,
though two years late, that The Sun
finds tho idol which it shono npou in
1892 to be mere clay, dross or brass.
But this should have been discovered
sooner. It was just as easy for The Sun
to refer to tho speeches and letters of
tho presidential candidate in 1892 as it
is to do this in 1894. Tho documents
of 1SSG, of 1888, of 1891, of April and
July, 1892, were all at the disposal of
The Sun as matters of public record
prior to November, 1892. The Sun knew
then, or should havo known, tho char
acter of the man whom it wished to
elect to the high office of president and
that his teachings wero "the teachings '
of the disturbers of society, and some
times such teachings bear terriblo fruit. "
Thei'o can be no excuse whatever for
a journal of the high standing of the
New York Sun lor advocating such
teachings through its candidate. They '
wero un-Amcricaa and should "have
found no place either directly or indi- j
rectly in the columns of a reputable
American journal. Wo trust this will j
prove a lesson to all American newspa
pers such as are truly American and
have the interests of their country at
heart. It is far better to take the trou
blo to ascertain whether tho candidate
for tho high ofiica of president has at
any time been a socialistic agitator, an
advocate of anarchy, a promoter of strife
or a disturber of classes before his elec
tion than it is to do this after his elec
tion. Tiie light has coma T ho splutterings
of the fag ends of the candle are ex
tinguished. Now the light is good.
The light is divided from tho darkness.
Let The Sun so shine.
WITH WOOL ON THE FREE LIST.
Sheep Will Be Sent to Market and Our
Flocks Forever Disappear.
If wool be put on the free list, the
American woolgrower will have to
submit to the disadvantages of raising
wool iu this climate on even terms with
his foreign rivals, who do not liave such
difficulties to contend with, and so with
out adequate protection must necessari
ly bo driven out of tho business. Our
seventh largest agricultural industry,
producing annually $60,000,000 worth
of wool and representing an investment
of $ 100, COO, 000 in sheep, will be de
stroyed by free trade.
Sheep will be fattened and will then
bo sent to market as food, and flocks
will disappear forever. Our food supply
will iu time thus ba decreased, and our
manufacturers eventually will be driven
to buy their wool in London or in Aus
tralia. Gold will be thus sent out of the
country again, increasing tho harmful
influences that must follow with the
balance of trade permanently against us.
The woolgrowers will be forced into
some other industry. They will proba
bly plow up their present sheep pastures
when tho laud is suitable and raise
wheat, of which wo already havo an
overproduction and a surplus, aud the
probabilities are that iu consequence of
the great increase in our surplus of
wheat in a short time wo will have
only 40 cent wheat. It is to the interest
of American farmers to diversify their
industries and to produce such articles
as will find a market at homo instead
of abroad. Tho farmer who can sell di
rect to the consumer closo to his home
saves the middleman's profits and the
cost of transportation, which otherwise
always lesaen tho net price to him when
he has to find si market abroad.
Pledged to Free Trade.
Australasian Wool Exports.
The latest available statistics of ex
ports of colcuial wool from all sources
for a period of nine months ending
March 31 in each of the given years
show tho following:
SINE MONTHS. JULY 1 TO MARCH 31.
New South Wales...
1,790,565 1,(2)2,611 1,652.050
These figures show increased exports
of almost 140,000 hales -within the three
given periods. Comparing these nine
months exports with tho total clips for
the entire season, given elsewhere, we
find that only 07,000 bales remained on
hand on March ai, 1894, as compared
with 115,000 bales on hand a year ear
lier aud 137,000 bales not exported on
March 31, 1892. Perhaps tho recent
hard times in the colonies have com
pelled the quicker marketing of the clip
this last season so as to secure prompt
returns for the owners.

Naval Appropriation Bill Con
sidered In the Senate.
SENATOR ALLEN'S AMENDMENT.
Naval Cadets Mut Ite Actual Resident oi
Their District Two Years Before Theii
Appointment Pamed the Mining Claim
Bill Difference on the Tariff Discussed.
Striker Going IRto Court.
Washington', July 10. After the
transaction of some business of minor
importance Monday the senate took up
the naval appropriation bill. White (Ual.)
called attention to the action of the com
mittee in striking out the appropriation
of $30,000 for a steam tug to Mare Isl
and navy yard and had read a letter from
the secretary of the navy indorsing the
necessity for the tug. The appropriation
was allowed to stand.
Senator Allen offered an amendment,
which was agreed to, providing all ap
pointees as naval cadets shall have been
actual residents of the district from
which they are appointed for at least
two years prior to their appointment.
The bill, as amended, was passed.
The senate passed a house bill relative
to miniug claims. It provides for the
temporary suspension of the requirement
that a certain sum of money shall be ex
pended each year on mining claims
until a patent shall have been granted.
Senator Blackburn announced the
death of Representative Marcus C. Lisle
(Ky.) last Saturday, and after the adop
tion of the customary resolutions the
Differences on the Tariff Discussed.
Washington, July 10. The first day
of the conference of the Democratic con
feres of the two houses was without
practical results or visible progress so
far as can be learned. The day was de
voted to a general discussion of the main
features of the bill and the principal
points of differences between the two
honas. The conference on the part of
the representatives was used to point out
the radical change in the policy involved
in the senate's departure from the free
raw materials and the ad valorem sys
tem, and they asserted that the senate
bill was not all the country demanded
in the way of tariff reform. The senate
representatives said it was the most rad
ical bill that could be passed in the sen
ate and announced a determination to
stand for tho bill practically as it passed
Treasury Officials Encouraged.

This is an increase in the cash balance
since June 27 of nearly $7,500,000, and
an increase in the gold reserve since
June 23 of nearly $2,230,000. The
treasury officials are greatly encouraged
at the seeming cessation of the gold ex
port movement and the great increase in
internal revenue receipts and are very
confident these conditions added to the
probable early passage of the new tariff
bill will result in a large increase of the
cash balance and the gold reserve.
Strikers Coins Into Court.
Washington, July 10. The state
ment is telegraphed here from California
that the strikers are about to apply to
the United States court to compel the
Southern Pacific railway company to
show cause why they should not b9 com
pelled to operate their road under the
terms of their charter. This was not
disagreeable news to the war depart
ment and they rather hoped that such a
step would be taken for it would oblige
the railroad company to supplement the
efforts of the military by every means
in their power and there is a suspicion
that it has been a little lax in this
respect so far.
Issues Another Proclamation.
Washinotc, July 10. The president
has issued a proclamation like the one
issued Sunday night, but referring to
the troubles in the Dakotas, Monta'0,
Idaho, Washington, Wyoming, Colorado
and California. The proclamation named
3 p. m July 10, as the time before
which all mobs must disperse and law
abiding citizens return to their abodes.
Declined to Arbitrate.
Washington-, July 10. Reports to the
postoiiice department say that the rail
roads have positively declined to accede
to the demands of the strikers for arbi
tration. Their action is based on the
theory that there are no grievances to ar
bitrate. Presidential Nominations.

Why Should They Fear?"
There is much reason to fear that the
tariff policy of President Cleveland and
the American Democrats is doomed to
complete failure. The Wilson tariff
bill, as it has come back to the senate
from the committee, Is completely met
amorphosed. The duties are raised on
almost every class of article the lauding
of which in the Wilson bill indicated a
leaning to a free trade policy. A com
promise it may be, bnt it is a compro
mise that virtually surrenders the prin
ciple and which pleases nobody. New
castle (England) Journal.
San Francisco, July 10. Everything
passed off quietly Monday. The strikers
have temporarily retired from the depot
and are massed at the headquarters
waiting orders from Labor Leadei
Knox. In anticipation of regular troops
being called oat a number of the Sacra
mento strikers have been sent to Stock
ton to blockade the road and also to warn
the men of the approach of the soldiers.
It is their intention to seize a train and
blockade th road, so it will be some
time before the troops will be able to pro
ceed to the city. In the meantime
the strikers at Sacramento will have
been warned of the advance of
the regulars and a concerted effort will
then be made to resist the troops. The
strikers are armed with Winchesters and
an attempt of the military to dislodgi
them will most certainly result in blood
