Eastern Illinois, Santa Fe and j Million roads enter the city, wns liund ling pasmMiger trains with a reasonable degree of elliciency np to last night. Tuiluy all Ihe-e roads are again in tmiililc. A new difTlciiIty is presented by the refusal of the engineers and fire men to risk lives by working with green bands, and the railway managers them selves are not anxious for fighting. They are exceedingly fearful of precipi tating a battle on the 4th of July, and will make no serious effort to move trains before Thursday morning. They also say a suspension of business at this time is not an unmixed evil. "We know perfectly well the freight Is in the country and must be moved sooner or later," said one today, "and we shall ultimately get our share. It will not lie tung before tlie inconvenience resulting from this suspension will be keenly felt everywhere, and then we believe public sentiment will lie a great factor in the extinction of Iub and his people. The price of provisions is advancing verv rapidly, and fruits, ice and all kinds of perishable property are commanding high prices." All the engineers, firemen and track men on the Chicago end of the Nickel I'late struck today without warning, leaving things in a desperate state of conltision. In a swamp several miles from the city a trninload of passengers from the Fast were left to their own re sources. A telegram from the military authori ties at Washington was received at local army headquarters late last night order ing the Fifteenth regiment at Fort Sher idan to be held in readiness to proceed to Dine Island at a moment's notice. The dispatch was sunt after a confeence with 1'ren'uleiit Cleveland. It was reported ut the General Mana gers' AtMocintion headquarters today the strikers luid broken into freight cars at Laimlng, 111., and stolon sixty eight kegs ol powder. Tresideiit Debs was served this noon itli a chancery suhpirna, a simply formal notice to appear before the court at the August term to answer a bill. After a talk with tho leaders of the boy- Mtt today, I'eter K. Studebaker said it was true he was trying to bring about a settlement of the strike. A pasxctigcr train on the Baltimore & Ohio was ditched at Bock Island junc tion today iiy strikers. The engineer was hadlr hurt. Tho roud was com pletely blockaded by a derailed train. Strikers stopped a train on the Nickel Mate roud which left the city at 7 :II0 a. in., at Ninety-second street and Stony avenue. The engineer and fireman w ore eonipelled to leave the engine. Twenty- five deputy marshals were sent with orders to recover the train. The plan ing mills have shut down, as they cannot ''ove lumber. This will throw out of work over 15,00 men. Not a Kock '"land train was moving today at Blue Island. The switch tracks are filled with dead engines and stalled trains. All the switchmen employed at the nion station yards have struck. The Wabash is tied up. Firemen on the Kock Island were in- 'tructed today not to work with non onion men. The Illinois Central engi neers passed resolutions endorsing tlie "trike. Master Workman Lindholm, Cl.iefofthe Knrghts of labor in Cook county, was In conference with leaders "f tho American Kailwav Cnion today. He said w when asked.

Judges (.irosscup and Woods, in the I'nited States court, issued an injunction today restraining tlie strikers, haHed IkMIi upon the muni- eipal law mid tlie interstate commerce act. It in a very sweeping order, and aims to protect the roads in the trans- portation of freight oh well aw in carry- lug the United States mails. The in - junction names twenty-three roads, all in the membership of the railway asso- ciution, and the Union Stock Yards Transit Company, that must not be in - terfered with. All members of the union, and "all persona whatsoever" are ordered to refrain from interfering w ith the trains, freight or passenger. rho men are also ordered not to enter the yards or premises of the companies with intent to do unlawful acts, or to compel, by threats, violence, or by any other means, tlie employees of the road to quit work. The order also enjoins the defendants from inducing by "per-! suusion, threats, violence, or by any other means, the employees of the companies to leave the service of the company, or to induce them to refuse to perforin their duties." t ight at Klue l.land. j Chkaoo, Jalv li. Today's develop-! ments In the great Pullmun-Amcriean Luilway Union strike have been prolific in sensationalism, the principal theater of action bring in Chicago and adjoining , -uouros. uu rumors were rue, ana hen it was announced more orders had beeu issued for the Second regiment to proceed at once to J'.lue Island, IS miles out, extra editions of all the even ing papers with warlike headlines were eagerly scanned bv thousands of r.eoi.le. i This report proved luter to 1 unfounded. ! The first serious clash occurred today, ! when 200 deputy I'nited States nmr- j shala were surrounded at Blue Island by ' 2000 strikers, who openly defied th i federal authority. eapons were drawn on both aides, and Deputy Mar-1 not ""dle Fullmans, and Suiierinten shal Logan badlv cut with a knife, but I dt'"t Kli,,e discharged them. This when a bloody conflict seemed immi- morning he was equal to the emergency, neat, the deputies retired to their bar- tt,,d l,J non u"Ion en8'" i re" ready racks to await reinforcements, leaving the strikers masters of the situation. During the battle United States Marshal Arnold was pulled otT a car platform and kicked and rolled over in the dirt by strikers. Wur.fi at at. Lnnli. St. Loi in, July 3. The strike situa tion in the territory tributary to St. Louis is decidedly worse today. All the American Hallway Cnion men on the Western division of the Wabash struck today, and the engineers refused to work with "greenhorns." On the Cotton Belt, the American Railway Cnion men went out during the night, leaving that system in bad shape. The First Regi ment of the Missouri National Guard has been ordered in readiness for service. At Fast St. Lonis all tlie wureliousej laborers struck closing every freight ; house. Not a single road on that side of the river has a complete switcbing crew. One road on this side w hich has j been handling its own business with its i own crews la the St. Louis, Keokuk & j Northwestern division of the Builington. This morning the switchmen and yard-1 men in the St. Louis and Southern St. I Louis yards, of the Iron Mountain j road, returned to work. ! Krrio. Troui.1.

The train cume to a dead stop, and a few min utes later the Northern Piiciuc train for Fargo came from behind at a rapid speed. A collision was averted by the prompt action of the engineer, who stopped his train within eight feet of the Burlington. A large crowd of strikers and many women are at Westminster street, aud serious trouble is looked for tomorrow. Many special police and extra United States marshals were sworn in today. Nothing is moving except passenger trains. Coxey oa th Stump. Minnacoi.is, July 3. "Gen." Coxey arrived today to fill an engagement to speak at a local labor picnic tomorrow.

THE MILITIA NOT IN IT And Tbey Mused to Cbarge When Ordered. THE MIIMVIXTEK FAIR EXDIiD The Regular Troops in Chicago March Beside the Trains But the Strikers Get There. Keg-Mlar In Chicago. Chicago, July 4. Taken in its en tirety, the day has been a quiet one in strike circles, barring an occasional flurry caused by the gathering of mobs in the stockyard district, which, how ever, were held in check by police and deputies, backed a p by the near prox imity of a detachment of regulars from Fort Sheridan, for whom the strikers have a wholesome respect. Trains are once more moving at Blue Island, the turbulent element having suddenly scattered down when confronted by pieces of ordinance and glittering bayo nets. After the troops disembarked at the stockyards, the strikers vented their spieen by ditching the two rear coaches of the troop train, and disabled the en gine by shoving -xiupling pins into the cross-head guides, being careful, how ever, to wait until the regulars were a safe distance away. The Chicago and Northwestern today resumed its passenger service, which is now running regularly and without in terference. The Illinois Central an nounces that its suburban passenger service will be resumed tomorrow. The Atchison & Topeka and Alton service is seriously crippled, though the former's passenger trains are moving on time, the Baltimore & Ohio passenger service is normal, while the Nickel Plate's freight service is at a standstill, and passenger trains are irregular. The Chicago & Calumet Terminal is at a standstill. The Michigan Central sent out a train of 40 cars of meat today. The Pennsylvania announces that it will be moving perishable freight to and from Chicago tomorrow. AT TUB STOCK YAUUS. Cnion Stock Yakdk, 111., July 4. Soon after 2 p. m. a train was seen com ing into the yards on the Lake Shore road at Fortieth and West avenue. The mob that bad been loitering around Halstead street since the first trouble this morning, immediately started to ward the train with the intention of in tercepting it. The train was made up of three passenger cars, containing six arti.lery and five cavalry companies of u niied Mates troops, in all about lio men, together with ten cars of cavalry horses and two fiat cars loaded with half a dozen gatiling guns. On the en gine and tender were stationed eight ar tillerymen with a pistol in one hand and a rifle in the other. Troops were on top of the boxcars with loaded rifles. which they held in a threatening posi tion. With this formidable showing tlie troops failed to intimidate the crowd, who at once uncoupled the two rear cars and threw several switches. Then they crowded around the engine and succeeded in getting the engineer to abandon his post. A nonunion man who accompanied the soldiers, and who is said to be a cousin of Wiiliain linker ton, the detective, volunteered his ser vice to act as engineer. The train started again, after connecting the cars that had been uncoupled, but it had not proceeded more than about a block when the cars were again uncoupled, this time in the center. The troops were then ordered out of the cars and marched along the train on both sides, clearing the way and keeping the mob back until ihe train was made up and started for the yards, arriving at the depot at 3 o'clock. The troops im mediately went into camp at Dexter Park. ttaeraiuento' Must Kxcltlng lay. Sackamknto, July 4. This hag been the mosc exciting day in the brief his tory of the strike. Early this morning 1,000 armed militia arrived here from San Francisco and Stockton and pro ceeded to the armory. As they pro ceeded down L. street countless thous ands of people lined the sidewalks and alternately cheered and hissed the troops. The anniversary of the birth of the nation seemed to have been forgotten in the great struggle het veen capital and labor. After reaching the aruiory the troops halted and were received by General Dickenson. Subsequently they entered the big building, where they were served with breakfast. Soon after K o'clock General Dickenson ordered the troops to load their guns, prepara tory to going to the depot. During the loading process a gun in tho hands of a member of the company from San Fran cisco exploded, seriously wounding (). H. Wing, a local fireman, and injuring two soldiers. Wing was shot through thelKJwels, and will die. One of the soldiers was shot through the right leg, and is now in the railroad hospital. The other escaped with a flesh wound. In anticipation of a lively sreimmage between the soldiers and strikers, an immense crowd gathered at tho depot this morning. It was not until 10 o'clock that the San Francisco First and Third regiments and the two companies from Stockton marched up Sixth street to J. thence to Second to the depot, with companies G and K of Sacramento, at the right of the column. As soon as this body of nearly 1,000 men were ob served heading for the depot, a stream of people proceeded them and crowded the west end of the depot. The Sacra mento regiment wa9 ordered to clear the depot of the crowd, but the further ad vance of tho regiment was blocked by a dense mass of people who refused to re treat from the soldiers. They were reasoned with by United States Marshal Baldwin and others and urged to permit the soldiers to enter without a collision, but they refused to move. General Sheehan then reported to Marshal Baldwin, by whose request the troops were sent here, and under whose command they were, and explained that it was impossible to clear the depot witnout using torce, and asked tor a written order to fire, but the marshal refused to give such an order. At first he said that he was not aware that the troops were under his control, and that he would give no orders until the law setting that fact was pointed out to him, and it was made plain that the troops were under his orders. He was then asked by the military authorities what he wished the troops to do, and replied that he wanted the Yolo and American river bridges guarded. General Dimond wag asked to make a detail to carry out this desire of the marshal, which he did by ordering General Sheehan to detail one company to guard the Yolo bridge. Company G, of the Sacramento regiment, was detailed for the Yolo bridge and company E, ot the same regiment, for the American bridge. Companies G and E were reported as ready to obey orders. Acting under instructions from the United States marshal, Genaral Shee han commanded the Sacramento com panies to clear the depot of strikers. The men marched into the depot amid the wildest cheering, but when the order to disperse the mob was given they lowered their guns and marched from the depot. This was the signal for a tremendous amount of cheering. The strikers shouted and yelled, and one of their number climbed upon an engine and triumphantly waved an American flag. The Stockton companies were then culled upon to clear the depot, but, likewise, laid down their arms and re turned to theif barracks. As the Sacra mento and Stockton companies marched up Second street to the armory they were enthusiastically cheered. Realiz ing the futility of further attempting to disperse the mob. Marshal Baldwin ordered General Sheehan to have the troops return to the armory. Amid the wildest cheering the soldiers then marched back to the armory. Illue Inland's Blockade ICalHed Bi.i e Islano, 111., July 4. The block ade on the Rock Island was entirely raised at 1 :1") p. m., and trains that have been tied up for five days began to move. The first of the trains that were stalled at Joliet came np to the track guarded by soldiers. Ten cars, half of them Pullmans, made up the train, w hich was followed every few minutes by six other trains of equal length, all guarded at the point of the bayonet. The spectacle of this procession of empty trains on the track was more novel and interesting than any Fourth of July procession which could be produced. All the deputy sheriffs have been with drawn, and a large number of them have gone to Riverdale, on the Illinois Central, where trouble is expected. The Midwinter Vair Is Ended. San Francisco, July 4. The end o California's Midwinter fair came today, when San Francisco day and the na tional holiday were jointly celebrated. The exposition was formally opened January 27.

REFUSE ALL SUBSTITUTES. Genuine made only bjr N. K. FAIRBANKS CO., ST. LOUIS and CHICAGO, NCW VORK, BOSTON. THEY'RE ALL L yobody Ever Saw Two Women Win Were Just Alike. One of the constitutional opinions of the average man is, that women are all alike, writes Junius Henri Itrowne in the Ladies' Home Journal. It crops out in his Npeeeb perpetually, some times in the way of kindness and sym pathy, oftener in the way of derision and contempt. hen a wife has for given some (Treat wong done by her husband, when a mother has sacrificed herself for her children, we hear: "It is just like a woman." We hear the same thing if she has deceived her lover or involved her father in debt. This dis sent is due to tho fact that some men are sentimentalists, and that more men are cynics. The former are always praising women; the lutter are jenerul ly sneering at or decryinr her: but both think that she has only one nature. The sentimentalist believes her to be good, ffcntlo, loyal, truthful under every circumstance; the cyni: pro nounces her bad, harsti, inconstant, hypocritical on instinct. Neither is wholly rijrht or wronpf. She is good and bad, fjentle and harsh, loyal and inconstant, truthful and hypocrital. Her qualities depend largely on tho in dividual, and tiio individual varies with mood and environment. She is not cut out cf tho ideal, nor is she. drawn front debasement. She is primarily human, as man is; a compound of brain and body, of strength and weakness, of feneroMty anil selfishncbs. of charity und prejudice, of altruism and egotism, of affection und aversion. Some wom en are fa.- better, some, wom-.m aro fat worse than the mass; but, lictter or worse, t'iiey are fundamentally unlike one another, and often unlike them selves. Poets nml novelists may, to a great degree, be responsible for the average man's opinion.of woman. The. poets have ordinarily used her as a vehicle of passion and romance; us a source of light to set off tho darknessof men's sins. She has been portrayed an their better angel, as turning them from vicious courses, as comforting them in illness and affliction, as recom pensing and blessing them after all their trials with her unalterable love.
