SAN THANCISCO , July 31. The Examiner
says this morning ; Among the passengers
who arrived on the Gaelic yesterday was E.
M. Ilycrs , a rich Iron manufacturer of Pitts-
burg1 , who came In company with Dr. Samuel
A. Hoyd , a physician who has lately been
traveling with him. According to the
stories circulated , nyera had tor some time
been abroad because of 111 health. In fact
some stories held that ho was not In his
right mind. Besides this , as was stated ,
Dyers' brother , who Is his partner In the
Iron business In Plttsburg. was anxious to
keep htm abroad , there being $2,000,000 con
cerned In It.
According to the story , Dyers was
shanghaied from his home In Pitts-
burg two years ago. Ills wife was In great
grief , and besought the brother to give her
Rome clew as to her husband's whereabouts.
This ho would not do. She then engaged de
tectives , supplied them plentifully with
money and urged them to use every endeavor
to find him. They , through their agencies ,
searched throughout the United States with
A year ago they succeeded In locating him
In Japan. When the detectives arrived
there , however , Dyers was gone. The de-
tcctlvo sent to bring him home followed him
to Australia , China and to the Hawaiian
Islands. The sick man was ilnaily again
discovered In Japan. The wife's detectives
found out by this time that Dyers' brother
had been using detectives , and furthermore
that he had a doctor engaged to travel with
the missing man. Necessary legal papers
were procured , and Mrs. Hyers' detertlvcs
took the Invalid In charge and started back
with him. All went well till ho reached
Honolulu. There the detective em
ploy od by Djers * brother endeavored to
prevent their coming any further. Ho suc
ceeded In getting away , however , and there
was no more trouble until Dyers and the de
tective arrived here yesterday.
After some trouble between detectives rep
resenting the different Interests , Dyers was
taken cast on last night's Overland , thwart
ing the efforts of his brother , who was trying
to set out a habeas corpus.
Mis. Byers had her husband taken from
her In a peculiar way , and by the same
brother. She had followed him when he
had been spirited away , and was attending
him in his illness. She stepped from the
room for a moment , and when she came
back he was gone. The doctor In attendance
had been bought over by the brother , and he ,
with the attendants , also Influenced by the
brother's money , disappeared with the hus

fact that there was little wind prevented
a general conflagration. ,

The strikers now numb r fiOO , the situation

ctusc of the walkout , he was Informed that
no roiuou whatever had been given by Iho

that the 1 OR butchers struck through sym
pathy for the beef butchers.
At the Hammond phut all the woikmcn
ire well organised In fact. It Is said that
the hog butolurs In tlo other lionrea do not
bclon _ to the union , and It was for that
reason that they did not go out. An hour
iftcr the Hammond hog butchers went out. a
meeting wits held , and a written proposition
sent to the hog butchers In each ot the
other hoiihcs. The proposition was for the
men to walk out , and as fast as they could
go through the Ceremony , they would be Ini
tiated Into the un'on. ,
GO OUT AT CUDAHY'S.
The first result of this action was that
In the aftern on the hcg butchers al

work for lunch a session was held and II
was decided to quit. Nothing was bald to
the foreman until all the men were ready ta
go out In a body. They then simply salil
that they would be back "lat.r. " But they ,
did not come and those who da not report for
work at 7 o'clock this motnlng will not bo
rclint-ited. Manager Cumeron had his men
make out the time of all the men who walk deut
out and If they do not show up for duty they ,
will be given their time when they da come ,
The strikers gay that the hog butchers at
Swift's will go out today. Seme of the men
wcro asked about this and refused to dis
cuss the matter It U als > predicted thai
the botio trimmers will not be at work totliy ,
Strong pressure Is being brought to bear
on the union laborers to glvo the r support
