CnicAno , Oct. 15.-Special [ Tele ram to
Hie Br.i : . ] The opinion Is general that a long
and blltcr striiL-glo between the packers and
employes at the stork yards Is Inevitable.
The ordering out of Armour's beef men Is
looked upon as the pinna ! for war , All at
i ! tempts by Delegates Hariy and Butler to ne
gotiate or compiomlsc the queHtlonsraised bv
the strike have signally failed. The pack era
have not shown a disposition to discuss
the matter In nn official manner and the
stiikcrsnro disposed to reiciird this treatment
In the light of a challenjc. After the meet
ing of district assembly 57 early this moinlng
Mr. Harry cnhl to a reporter : "We have
formally declared war on the big
poik speculator and It \vlll be
war to the knife and the knife to the hilt.
1 shall uot to Richmond now before the con-
\entlon adjourns and jou may depend upon
It that Armour'HiucatstliroughouttheUiiltcd '
States will be an unknown ciiantlty | In less
than tlnce months. Wo Intend to light nn
aggressive battle , and Aimoiir will either
be hiought lo terms or he relegated to the
position of n dead packer , nol withstanding
ids millions. As tar as the men aie concerned ,
\vcslmll take care ot themicsldcs ( the closing
down of the Industiy here dors not of neces
sity do awa > with it. The demand Is bound
to lie supplied elsewhere If not hcie. " Illus
trating inu general feeling among the packers ,
one ot the most prominent ouc.s said to a
icporlcr when npproachcd on the subject.
"We won't submit to any system but that of
ten hours foi a day's woik at the ten boms'
pay. In other welds , an unconditional sur-
icnderoi nothing. I attended a meeting nf
imekcr.s theotherday when the matter was
fully dlsciis-ed. Green hands wilt
be hired and biokcn In lapidly. This
can ho easily done , but of couise it will
take time to till all places. We , as an a'-so-
elation , intend to start big conceins again
llrut. Wo ha > c ailvcitlsed lor men all over
the country , and alicady men are beginning
to come In as a result of these amende" .
Armoiit and the Anglc-AiiK'iicau will be
running With full forces next week. This
will win our battle. When those two houses
me running lull-handed the light Is piactl-
cally won. Wo can easily lav up for a few-
weeks , or months , for that matter. Ten hours
we will liavc and we don't want to see any
committee either. II the men wish to leturn
on that basis they can do so as indix ( duals. "
The opinion ol this packer was read to
othcis and pictty gcneially indoiscd.
Thegieal tight between the employcis and
emplojes of the slot'k yaids has assumed
nioieseiious propotllnns. Aimour .fe Co.
aie to make the test case and establish the
pieccdent of which shall have the siipicmacy
labor or capital. Allcfloits at a compio-
mlso or even consultation with the packers
having failed , tliostiikcin met last night anil
decided to call out the bed butchers and the
result was about one thousand live huudicd
men quit work. Immediately a committee
of men weiito\er to Aimonvicualr shops ,
at Foity-nltli street , near HalstiMil street ,
where between titty and sev.-nty men aie
eiuplojed. Thej went in , had a shot t talk ,
and the men quit in a bodv. nil , including
the machinist ; , going out. The engineers nt
Aimoui's also quit woik this moining. New
men continue to nirive houily , and this
inornlnir the Lake Shore dummy brought
over two loads to Armoui's hoiibe. On the
lost tiip , about 10 o'clock , the ti.\In was
blocked all the way down from Forty-seventh
street , freight Kirs having been lutt on the
side ti.icks and swltclie.s in such a manner
that thn train couldn't pass. Ulti
mately the men were compelled
to get out and walk. The new
arrivals all enter by the tear entrance , and
Immediately go to work. From tlio icgularltv
with which each house luliigH its quota there
Is little doubt that the packers have agents
oat hit Ing men. The new comers are looked
an contemptuously by the locked out men.
and they aie called " 1 hosiers I" "Scabs 1"
"Mossbacksl" and other choice names. It Is
estimated that Armour has twelve bundled
of them at work.
The scale of wages whlcli the packers offer
their men is as follows : Scaldeis. 3:1.00 : and
54.00 ; seraoers , Si.'ir ; ; shovers , sS.OO ; mess
nork trimmers , S--S ; mess poik choppers ,
: i.OO : trimmers , S'J.25 and SJi.ofl ; cellar men ,
$1.7.1 and J'J.'i'i ; lank men. 51.73 and S'J.i'i ;
coopers , SU.OO. This Is on a basis of ton
houis' iiay for ten hours' pay.
Cudany cxnressed some surprise that the
men should blame Armour for the trouble.
Nelso Moiils denies the Htatementciedlted to
Him that the affair was n move on the pait of
Armour to drive Swift and himself out of the
trade , and Unit ho was endeavoring to dilve

proved of the tact that they ha\e been
brought there and would contribute toward

It was false thnt ho was in the way of an

denied. Armour expressed svmpathy for

Into session this moinlng at t ) o'clock the
lirst business to be completed was the elec
tion of the remaining Kcneial otlicorx and
two members of the co-oneratlve boaid. It
was expected that this would take but a short
time , and the consideiatlon of the icpoit on
the revision of llio constitution picscntcd by
thecomn.lttee on law would be u'sumed.
This. In tin n , was to.be loll , wed bj reports

niont is chaliman. This lepoit eiidoiscs the
icpoit of the committee on legislation , of
which Beaumont is chairman , and iccom-
mends that the supplementaiy repoit of the

In his lepoit Mr. Litc.liman recites that the
hearings weie held \aiiousplaces in Texas
and Arkansas , and sa > s : "The testimony in
bcliidl ol the lai road was mainly to show
what great damage had been caused by the
striKc to tlio laihoad pnmeity and com
merce , that il had uten begun on a frivolous
pit-text without leal cause , and that the
older ot the Knights ol Labor was dlicctly
responsible lor all the damage done and all
tint acts ot violence couiiiiittcd With the
unlimited ii'somecs at their command , it was
compiiativcly easv I or the lailroad olllcials to

statements which .should lit eacli other , and
this pitlimiinii1 } drilllnir was painluUy an-
paient In the teHliimmy iriven. Like a lot ot
parrots they all re-echoed the statement that
the only cause they hae ever heard assigned
foi the strike was the dl < ; liaigo of a man
named Hull , of Maishall , Te.v.

this morning was thoconipletlnnof the list of

Tlio following resolullon was presented by

WHKIIUAN Hepoits have been circulated

Kcsolved , That tlie oigaui/atlon of the
Knights of Labor promises civil and political

botli sides of the question at considerable
length and says It Is easy enough now to
make Maitin lions a scapegoat and say he

truth Is that every local assembly voted

While he was at the post word cnino to tlio
statHdcpartiiicnt of his peculiar conduct , and
It was tliniiL-lit , of couise , his nomination
would bo withdrawn fioiu this senate. Hut
It was not , ninl lltmlly the senate did con Him
him , the slnUMlep.n tmoiit not telling It of
Greenhaum'.s action. Kin advices again
came to tliu deputme.nl of his peculiar
acllons In Samoa , so that when he inlonucd
the depaiimunt that ho Intended to come

him to come hero.Vlien \ he
did come , utiuiit two months ago ,
Sec.ietiuv Bayaid inlonucd him Hint Ins

was e\picted to it-sign at once.
Gti-eiib.uim asked tor tlino to go

ntiiilly Hates leached Samoa , llo found

Kienchnian had died In Somoa and lelt an
estate , and ( iiccnbaum , as American coiibtd ,

reason he was selected was because the
American nation was supposed to bo ttie
most Iriemlly to Fiance and the. Kiench had
no lepiesenlative theie. liate.s continued
Ills investigations and tound that Gieen-
j.ium had been unlsiilhtiil as trustee to tin *
estate and had mlsappiowiate.d some of the

atouci' . Then began a conespondence be-
iween Hates and the dcp.utmcnt which has
harr.is.sed the secietary gicatly. The ollicial.s
aie. veiy cautious as to what they say. They
icknowledgo thetaettli.it Greenuaum was

no iiioio about the matter. The state depait-
ment is , however , negotiating through Hates
tor a settlement of the estate. While peiiiaps
the United States could not bo held legally
to account for ( iii'onbaiiiu's shortcomings ,
the department thought it would be best lor
the United Stales' honor to settle the little
matter out of Unelo S.im's po-ket without
