The guards nt shaft No. 47 had u pltcUvd
battle with a inch of strikers at ID-.IiO o'clock
tonight. The mob approached the mine
quietly und llred Into the shaft. Deputy
Sheriff nrant , who was on patrol guard , re
turned the llro and calling Iho other guards
defended the mine against the mob. Over u
hundred shots were llrcd , but none of the
deputies Injured. When Iho mob saw that
the guards were standing iholr ground they
lied. It is not known how many , If any ,
of the mob were shot.
Shaft No.17 of the Kansas ft Texas j
company started up under armed guards
with a full force of men. A large crowd of
Ridkers and women ( 'uUicrod In the vicinity
of the shaft anil were planning to make a
raid upon the shaft when Sheriff Arnold ap
peared upon the scene. Ho addressed the
crowd , tolling them that although his sym
pathies were with them ho was bound to do
Ills duty. Ho had placed armed guards at
the mines anil had ordered them to protect
the properties and Iho men ut work upon
them. If ho found thut his deputies were
powerless lo guard Iho properly in Iho
county und the lives of Its citizens ho would
so inform the governor und the executive
could put W)0 ) militia upon the ground In.
three hours. It was useless to altack the
men al work , ho said , nnd ho ordered Iho
mob lo disperse. The mob obeyed Iho order
and there was no disturbance.
The Strip pit men were nil ut work today
nnd , so far as heard from , were not molested
by the strikers. Now thut the sheriff has
shown lhat ho can and will guard the work
ing miners other minus will start up. Shaft
No. IS of the Kansas & Texas company and
two of the Kellh & Perry shafts will be
Blurted in Ihe morning.
The only thing that now causes apprehen
sion Is tbo rumor that Uio foreign mlucrs

KANSAS Cny , Julv 2-1. There Is no longer
doubt that the Central Coal und C'gko com
pany and Ihe Kansas & Texas Coal com
pany Intend to bring an end lo Iho slriko in
their mines In southeastern Kansas in the
next few days. The Central Cole and Coke
company has nearly finished the building of
stockades around its mines at Weir City and
Scaminon , nnd has built bouses for the
workmen within the walls , and Ibis morning
President U. II. Kellh told u reporter that
the mines at both places would bo opcraled
before the end of Iho week.
"What day will you begin work ? " ho
asked. ' '
"I don't know. That has not been de
cided definitely. " '
"Whore are the men who will work in
thorn to from ? " ' ' "
como - J-
Kusy I'noufili to Oct Men.
"Some of our old men will bo given n
chance to go lo work again if they feel so
disposed. The -others , tbo men who have
given us most of the trouble , we don't want
nnd we won't have. Then there are some
men coming from Colorado nnd some men
coming from the south. It is easy enough
to got the men. "
"Are the men who como -from the south
negroes ? "
"I guess they arc. Negroes make good
miners and what wo want Is men who will
dig thu coal. "
"Will they be furnished with the arms
thut are stacked nl Springfield and else
where ? "
"Wo are not going to pub men into our
mines co bo shot down like catlle. There is
no use trying to disguise the facts. Wo have
no reason lo believe thut they will be pro
tected by the slate. Our experience with
the stale nnd county ofllcers has been such
that wo can expect lllllo from Ihoni. Wo
must do something. It would bu folly and
"it would bo cruelty on our part lo put work-
ingmcn in those mines without protection.
When Iho miners go Inside of Iho slockades
Ihey will bo prepared lo defend themselves
ncalnst attack. "
The Kansas it Texas company is preparing
for worlc. too , but neither company-will teli
when work will begin. Manager Crandall
of Iho Kansas A ; Texas company is al Iho
mines and will probably slay there until
mailers are settled. It is expected ho will
take some decided action during the next
two or thrco days.

party of bicyclists last week. From a flssuro
In the bluffs n blast of hot air Is Issuing with

since. The river In the neighborhood has
been eating into tlio bank and destroying the

BUFFALO , Wyo. , Julj 24. [ Special Tele
gram to Tin : BUB. ] A llro * broico out Friday
about two miles from hero , on the Buffalo
side of the old T. W. ranch in the red hills ,
where J. G. Oliver it Co's. sheep camp is lo
cated. The news was brought in by some
wool freighters from the cam ] ) , in the aftnr-
noon , and Just about sundown the flames
were plainly visible on the divide. As tlio
darkness increased , the burning prairie pre
sented a beautiful , but terrible appearance.
A glowing ridge of lire extended for about
ten or twelve miles from south to north , and
was seen to bo advancing with great rapid
ity , while every moment great tongues of
Ilamo leaped up as tlio lire caught the long
grass around some rocky eminence.
It seemed as if the llro would make its
way down to the meadows and hayliclds of
Cle'ar creek , and Messrs. Conrad and Hlne
dispatched a force of IIU.MI to their ranch to
aid In lighting the llro if necessary. U. J.
Daley and Danny Mitchell hitched up a
light rig , and taking a largo tub of water
nnd about a halo of old gunny sucks , started 1
for the scene of operations. From their
account one of the most fertile sources of
danger lies in the buifnlo chips that are
scattered around In such profusion. These
retain the lire for a long time , and their
smouldering ashes are liable to bo taken by
any high wind to start the llro In a new
place. Another dllliculty is the sago brush ,
wiilch cannot bo beaten out us easily as the
grass , and thu glowing stump * of which con
tinue to throw oil' sparks long after thu llro
has passed. Any shift in the wind is thus
apt to carry thorn onto new ground.
M. T. Hodman and his whole crew were
out to defend their pastures , and doubtless
every ono on the crcelc was on the alert.
When the party from Buffalo returned the
llro had died or burnt out along the wcstnnd I
north sides of the divide , but was steadily
advancing to the east and northeast , 'lUiis
morning it Is still seen to bo burning , though :
at u greater distance. The red hills , the
scene of the conflagration.is onoof the favor
ite winter ranges lor the cattle of this vicin
ity , and the loss of the grass this year , when
almost all the range feed Is short and scarce ,
will cause considerable trouble.

Solicitor General John M. Thurston of the

He said :
. ' The Union Pacific company hns not ap

that it will do so.
"At the mecllngof the railway prcsldcnls In

which will be Hi-force on and after August 1.
By a computation of rates it appears to tbo
managers of our company that the
now schedule will almost bankrupt
our lines of road in this stale , but
there is no doubt that we , and the other
roads , too , will lest the consliluUonallty of

' As to Iho intention of tbo application for

CHICAGO , July 24. Heads east and south
from Chicago were thrown Into a state
of great excitement today by the discovery
that the market hero was literally
Hooded with Big Four tickets , which were
uoing used to scalp rales from Chicago to St.
Louis , Chicago to Indianapolis and Indian
apolis to St. Louis. These tickets are pur
porlcd lo bo round-trip World's fair tickets.
They arc , as a matter of fact , one-way tick
ets from Cleveland to St. Louis , via Chicago
and Indianapolis. There is nothing to show
that the portion of the tickets reading from
Cleveland to Chicaco has been used at ull
The brokers are selling the portion from
Chicago to St. Louisvia Indianapolis for f."i.
This is u scalp of Sl.ftO on the reduced one-
rales by Ihe direnl lines. It is really giving
512 worth of transportation for ? 5. The rate
from Chicago to Indianapolis is now $4.50
and from Indianapolis to St. Louis is $7.50 ,
making $12 for the sum of Iheso locals.
Freight tralllc in and out of Chicago con
tinues to bo exceedingly unsatisfactory to
the roads , eastbound dead freight last week
suffering a considerable decrease ns com
pared with That of iho previous one. It
amounted in the aggregate to 47,509 tons ,
against W,2.)7 ) tons for the previous week and j
62,240 tons for Iho corresponding week lasl
year. Through shipments of flour , grain
and provisions amounted to 19,848 tons ,
against 20.551 tons for the corresponding
week last year.
All Iho lorritory from Chicago to tbo Pa
cific coast is now practically under Iho pro
visions of the Western Passenger associa
tion agreemenl. All the roads in the nsso-
elation have become parlies to the .local
agreements at San Francisco nnd Oakland ,
which virtually einoody the principles of iho
association agreement. These local ngree-
inonts have for their object Ihe putting an |
end to the demoralization that has played
havoc with transcontinental rates for moro
than u year past. Peace and stiff rates are
now oxpeclcd to prevail in California terri-
lory.An
An immense amount of lobbying wns In-
dulgcd in today by iho we torn roads among
themselves to bring about an ngreemrnt be
fore the meeting tomorrow on World's fair

hopeful feeling prevailed among ihom that
they hud succeeded. The Santa Fo pro-
fessed a preference for nn agreement to act
independently. At the same li no it wauled
to have the agreement on Its own terms and
persisted in ils demand for u flat one faro
rule from all iransmissourl territory. The
other roads wanted to compromise on t\ \

Fo refused to listen to this. It is figuring

Toi'ii-A , July 2-1. United Slates il
John Martin who left for Washington ls
afternoon said thai he expected the extra
session of congress to run into the regular
session. Ho would vote for tlio ropa.il of
the Sherman act only upon the condition
that the repealing not should Include better
silver legislation than the Sherman law.
Ho regards ttio Sherman law lib an Iniquity
and a crime , wtilch was put upon thocounlry
by the gold standard men for the purpose of
discrediting silver money. But liu would
not consent to Us repeal without a gooit sub

thai it will never i gut through Iho senate
and that in the end a compromise will bo

bee the Impossibility of forcing an absolute

The position the eastern wing of tha

that unless the democratic parly abandons

July 21. [ By Mexican Cable to Iho Now
York Herald Special lo TUB BEU. ] The
Herald's correspondent in Klvioru telegraphs
that the Brazilian government has unearthed
a plot among some of the officers of Iho
troops stationed in Sun Gabriel to surrender
lhal city to the revolutionists of Kio Grande
do Sul. The plot wus discovered just In
time lo prevent Us execution and the ofllccrs
implicated have been sent as orisoncrs to
Porto Afegro. The correspondent adds thai
In an engagement near San Louis the revo
lutionary forces were defeated.
From Montevideo the Herald's corre
spondent telegraphs that the Uruguayan
cabinet has deckled that the request of
Brazil for the arrest and surrender of Sil-
vlera Marline and other members of Iho
revolutionary committee cannot legally bo
compiled with. It was supposed thut this
demand ot the Brazilians coupled with an
ordur for thrco war ships to proceed to
Montevideo mount thut war would follow a
refusal , but the Brazilian minister loday as i-
sured the Uruguayan foreign minister thut
the war ships were on a cruise and that no
hostile net was Intended. This nssuraneo
has tended to < iulot the fear that war would
at once be declared but It by 10 means In i-
dicates that ii. ro will not be serious trouolo.
Modified 'Ilii'lr Action.
Possibly the knowledge that Argentina
would como to the assistance of Uruguay has
caused Brazil to call the visit of her wur
ships to Montevideo u "cruise" instead of a
hostile uet. Meanwhile Ihe ships will be
near Montevideo and also close to Buenos
Ayrcs , if wur should actually bu declared.
The Montevideo correspondent says that
only guerilla warfare U now going on in Kio
Orando do Sul. Ambulances have been pro
hibited by the government from going t ; the
relief of these wounded on the
frontier. Nothing Is known in Montevideo !
of u reported revolution In Santa C.itiutrina ,
thu Bra/.ilian stale north of Kio Grande do
Sul. News which goes to London from Kio
ioI
Janeiro is from government sources. Noth I-
ing is allowed to coma to Montevideo and the
situation in the Brazilian capital Is not
known. It is'bolleved that the report of llu
revolt in Santa Culharinu grow out of efforts :
of emissaries from Kio Ur.indo do Sul to SB.

granted from June 4. 1S7S , and $72 a month
from Juno 17 , 1H7S , does not improve matters

ISIili , and $111.25 per month from June 4 , 1)72 ! ,
to Juno 4 , 1S7This ) second rcr.Uing netted

It is further remembcrod by several pen
sion otllcc employees that Judeo I.OIIK was
on Iho ground himself when the pension
bureau took its Ilrst j'o'nnrldblc action und ,
together with Major Wright of the pension
bureau , seemed to bo looking carefully after
his intorcsls.
The papers also show lhat despite the
fact that the ofllce medical board which ex
amined ' ' Judge Long on March 21 , " 183-1 , "only/ /
fouh'd h'iinentitled to ! 0 per' month , which"
dofealtd any right of liis to an increase , fo'r
ho wus then in receipt of S0 ! per month pen
sion. In August , 1SS4 , his pension was arbi
trarily Increased by Commissioner Dudley

'It should bo stated , however , in Justice
to Mr. Tanner , that before no grunted Judge
his llrstrcratim * , he obtained from the
chief of the l'iw division Mr , . Bailey , a legal
opinion prepared by Captain Lyon , which
sought to Justify the contemplated rerating
by the commissioner. Ills needless to say
