Ciui Aiio, July 12. The atrike sitna
ti'in throiighoiit the country today waa,
in general, one of quietness. The cen
tral point of Interest has been the meet
ing of the labor leailora with President
iiiipers, of the Federation of labor, at
the labor heiidiuarters in theclty. It is
admitted that the action of that body,
If taken unanimously, will liavo
marked effect on the situation, and per
ona well informed as totho predilictlona
of the persona cun laming it express the
opinion that unanimous action by it,
except in the direction of quieting the
prcitent ugitution or turning it into
"ther channels, is unlikely. It is known
that several suggestions are being con
sidered by the leaders. Among them
Are the following:
I-1 rat, that the striking Pullman em-
r'"j",uu niK11 patrioiiu griHuiue, wi
peal to President Ihiba to declare the
strike otr by reason of the infinite dam
gi which is Idling done to the uminees
of the country.
Second, that the leaders unite in an
Hppeal to the pub ic to quit patronising
Pullman sleeping ears, drawing-room
Third, that President Cleveland lie re
pii'ited to appoint a committee to in
vestigate the strlko and the causes
which led up to it, in expectation that
..ie report of such comiuiKaion would
justify the action taken by the strik
ers and free them from the chargcx of
rioting and disorder.
Fourth, that immediate i-M'urts he
made to secure the impeachment of At
torney (ieneral Olney.
I'iflh, tbut un elfurt he made to aucure
the paasuge of a compulsory arbitration
luw by congress.
Sixth, that complaints he lodged look
ing to the indictment of the railway
nmnngcrs for conspiracy to obstruct the
movement of the United States mails
by refusing to run mail curs except in
connection with Pullman.
At noou today he union uiuchinists
threw down their tools and joined in the
general sympathetic strike, which was
inaugurated yesterday. As is natiul in
such caaes, the strike ullocts the large
shops fur morn than Die smaller ones,
whore only a few men are employed.
Promptly at 12 o'clock the 7U0 men em
ployed by Fraaer & Chulmers laid down
their tools and went on a strike. lie
fore doing so, they bud notified Presi
dent W. J. Chalmers of their intention,
and held a conference, wherein the men
stated their position. They tiaid they
hud no complaint nguiust the company,
nor any grievances of any kind, but bud
bt on ordered to strike out of sympathy,
nnd would do so to fchow their senti
ments. Mr. Chulmers made a speech,
in which .he suid he hoped that the
strike would cunse no hard feeling be
'ween the company mid its employee,
'iid with a liaiidHhuke and well wishes
all around, the men left, and the big
shop, which a few minutes be (ore bad
been all bustle and confusion, was silent.
Over 100 men employed by the Gates
Iron Company walked out at the same
hour, and a number of other shops were

WAhutxdTON, July 13. The appoint
ment of Senator Dolph as one of the
conferrees on the river and harbor bill
means that many of the increases in
the bill for Oregon and Washington will
be retained. It is probable that the ap
propriation for the boat railway will
now stay in the bill. Squire called up
and passed the bill granting the
Columbia Irrigation Company the
right-of-wny over the Yakima reserva
tion. The bill hue passed the house,
and will no doubt be signed by the
president. Squire's canal project went
through the senate without the least
objection. An attack was made on the
boat railway, which Dolph defended.

Ciiicaoo, July 13. Judge tlrosseup
culled the grand jury before him this
morning and instructed them if evidence
is presented that the ruilway managers
ugreed to have tho mails or interptute
commerce stopped they lire guilty of
conspiracy. Then, after hearing a state
ment from the foreman, the jurors de
cided to adjourn until Tuesday, in order
to return to their homes for Sunday.
In giving his consent the court said :
"It is my duty to give you further in
structions. No man is above the law.
The line of criminality is drawn be
tween those who violate the law nnd
those who do not. The fact that a man
occupies a lower position does not pre
vent him from making known his griev
ances. Your door ought to be open to
all w ho may come w ith evidence that is
tangible and not bused upon mere hear
say. It is stated in the public prints
that some of our fellow citizens believe
that the interference with the mails and
interstate commerce was the result of a
conspiracy among men higher in the
roads than the employes.
"If two or more men wrongfully agree,
either for the purpose of creating public
sympathy or for any other purpose, to
have the mails or interstate commerce
stopped, they are guilty of conspiracy.
If two or more men ugree w rongfully
among themselves for the purpose of
creating public sympathy, to discharge
men, intending that their discharge
would stop the passage of the mails or
Interstate commerce, they are guilty of
coimpiracy. If two or more men wrong
fully ugree not to employ men to take
the places of men who bad quit work,
and allowed trains to stand still in or
der to create public sympathy, they
would be guilty of conspiracy, unless
tho circumstances were such that the
employment of new men would lead to
the danger of those men or to the pub
lic interests. Every man is entitled to
bring his complaint in, if be bring it
with tangible evidence. It is the duty
as well as the pleasure of the district at
torney to submit such evidence to you if
it is presented, and it is your duty to
It is probable that the grand jury will
send for the telegrams sent and received
by the managers during the strike, as
was done with the telegrams of Debs
and other leaders of the strike. The
grand jury adjourned until Tuesday, und
the investigation of the railways may
not begin till next week.
He Killed Two Men anil Was Tliuu
Killed by Ills Wife.
Lovki.ock, New, July 13. A triple
murder, due to jealousy, occurred about
twentv miles from here last night.
Robert Logan shot and killed Dan
Lovelock and Fred Sullivan and was in
turn killed by his own wife. Logan's
wife had applied for divorce, and Logan
was insanely jealous of her, and threat
ened to kill some of her male friends.
A few days ago Mrs. Logan went to
Cottonwood. Logan followed and at
tacked Dan Lovelock, tho stage driver,
wounding him severely in the head.
Lovelock was unable to return here,
and Mrs. Logan drove the stage. She
returned to Cottonwood Wednesday to
bring Lovelock home. On the return
trip, Mrs. Logan drove, Lovelock was
on the front sent, and Fred Sullivan a
passenger, was on the rear seat.
At dusk Logan rode up, armed with a
Winchester, and said he was going to
town with his wife. He rode on behind
the atage, and after going some distance,
shot Sullivan from behind, the bullet
passing through his heart. ' Then he
picked off Lovelock, and the socond vic
tim fell dead in Mrs. Logan's lap.
Logan then said he was going to drive
the stage to a well five miles distant,
where he intended to throw the bodies
of the murdered men, after which he
was going to cut his wife into small
pieces and throw her in after the men.
Instead she pursuaded him to water the
horses, and when lie stooped to secure a
bucket under tho stage, she took a pistol
from lovelock's pocket and shot her
husband. He cried for mercy, but she
shot again and he fell behind the stage.
Sho dismounted and gave him one more
bullet as settler. She left lagan's
body lying In the dust and drove into
town with the other bodies. Lovelock

Knox was arrested for conspiracy in

that the proofs possessed by the prose

St. Pai l, Minn., July 15. The farm
ers fears they will suffer from a sym
pathetic strike growing out of the Pull
man strike. On account ot the strike
shipments of binding twine have been
few and far between and the wheat
crop is suffering because it cannot be
harvested promptly. Much twine has
lieen secured. Hut much more is needed
and all parts of the Northwest report a
a great scarcity. Much of that already
shipped has gone over the roads that
have been boycotted because of the
Pullman strike and a boycott in the
twine trade is threatened on account of

tioi.DKNUALE, July 13. Many Golden
dale citizens are making an effort to in
duce the Grant's distillery to remove its
plants to Goldendale. It is stated that
1,000 subsidy has already been pledged.
The promoters offer much argument in
favor of the location of the plant at
Goldendale. One point made is that
wood can be purchased at Goldendale.
Another point made is that there will be
a saving of 7 cents on every bushel of
grain purchased. It is further advocated
that the savings on purchases of material
shrinkage and freights would fur exceed
the cost of hauling manufactured goods
to Grant's station for shipment.

Chicago, July 13. The American
Railway Union officials have determined
to make a desperate struggle to regain
for that order the prenige it has lost in
toe great strike now rapidly approach
ing a close. The executive board of the
union held a meeting this morning, the
objct of which w as to map out a course
for the future. After a long discussion
it was decided to send out "revivalists"
to all important sections of the west.
Six agitators wero sent out Saturday,
and it was decided to augment this
number. Debs said in an interview:
"The names of those sent out Satur
day will cot be given out, for fear of
inciting a riot."
It was learned elsewhere, however,
this morning Director Kern was tent to
St. Louis to rally the forces there.
Hogan w as sent out over the Northern
Pacific to stir up the employes of that
company, and Goodwin was sent over
Northwestern to use his influence with
tha employes of that system, and if
possible induce them to go out. These
delegates are all members of t tie execu
tive board of the union. Other emissa
ries were eent out to work with em
ployes of many lines entering this city.
After the executive committee ad
journed an enthusiastic meeting was
held in Ulrich's hall, President Debs
presiding. He made a rousing speech,
reminding one of the early days of the
strike, lie said :
"The strike is now, right now, more
prosperous and encouraging than ever
before. We can and must win. The
men whj have gone back to work will
again rome back to us, and victory is
ours. Grand Chief Arthur, of the en
gineers, is a 'scab' jobber, and he will
go down in history as a traitor to organ
ized labor. He instructs his men to
work with 'scabs,' he tells them that
scabbing is honorable. He is a tool in
the hands of the general managers.
The strike is weaker in Chicago than
elsewhere, but it will grow stronger,
just as in the west it is growing stronger
Fifteen meetings were held in differ
ent parts of the city during the after
noon and evening, several of which
were addressed by Debs. He will to
morrow give out a statement in answer
to the one made by Pullman.
Debs said that several of his com
mitteemen had reported to him that the
Rock Iiland, Lake Shore, Eastern Illi
nois, Grand Trunk and Eastern Indiana
men would all be out again tomorrow.
Nothing could be learned outside to
verify this assertion, however.

President Debs visited the strikers to-

themselves violently against the men
who have taken their places. Ttie
switchmen and enginemen were espe

that the contempt proceeding against

j To ICeport Next Week.
Washington, July 14. Tho con
j ferrees on the tariff bill have agreed on
j the following: Pottery rates are in
I creased 6 per cent, making them the
same as the house bill. Glassware is
rednced to the house rates. The cotton
schedule is scaled down about 5 percent
from senate rates. The woolen sched
ule is brought down considerably, mak
ing it more in accordance with the
house rate. The house rate of fl on
wrappers in the tobacco schedule is
substituted for the senate rates of $1.50
to $2.50. The metal schedule is not
changed materially from the rates fixed
by tho senate. Neither iron nor coal
has been carried back to the free list,
and probably the senate rate of 40 rents
a ton will stand. It is quite definitely
settled lead ore will remain at three
fourths of a cent a pound, as fixed by
the senate bill.
Senator Brice was laconic tonight
asked for information as to when the
tariff conferrees would report. He said ;
"The report will lie made to the two
houses Wednesday of next week. The
conferrees will report a disagreement,
and both houses will instruct another
Other senators also declared a report
would be made during the week.
The Deserted Cook.
Missoula, Mont., July 15. The Col
gate searching party, sent out by the
Evening Missoulan under tho direction
of Ben F. Keeley, the trapper w ho es
corted the Carlin bunting party out of
the mountain fastness last fall, and
which left the city June 6, returned un
expectedly this afternoon. The party
made a thorough search of the river
banks and surrounding country for a
distance of seven miles in all directions)
from the spot where the nnfortunate
cook was deserted by his companions.
Not a single trace of the missing man
could tie found, nor waa there anything
to indicate he had wandered from the
camp There he had been left. The
Keeley party encountered many hard
ships on the trip, but stuck faithfully to
its task until all hope of tinumg Col
gale's bones had to lie abandoned. It
is now generally believed that the old
man perished near the spot where he
was deserted, and that his remains
were carried away by the waters which
attained a hight of 40 feet above low
water mark during the spring.
