for the release of the three Dunsmulr
strikers before Ju'Ik? Catlln this after-
noi'n, a detachment of regulars
marched Into th courthouse with th)
evident purpose of taking the prls-

and called upon the persons present to

Portland, July 18. For the first time
Ince the strike, the Northern Pacific
took out a freight train today. The
company has not yet commenced to
receive freight, however, and that
moved today Is freight received be
fore the strike was on, and which has
been held since that time. The through
passenger train has been resumed, and
eaves regularly every day.
The Oregon Hallway & Navigation
this morning resumed Its freight ser
vice, and Is now receiving all light
freights offered, no heavy freight being
taken on account of having to transfer
by water between Cascade Locks and
The Dalles and again between Cclllo
and Arlington. The road damaged by
the floods has been repaired from
Bonneville to the Cascade locks, and
trains run, commenting today, as far
east as the locks without transferring.
All river and steamer freight offered
Is being handled by the Oregon Kail
way & Navigation, and, notwlthstand-
ng Its damaged track by the floods,
It is In good shape to do business.

ling all local freight and passenger
business offered, but no through freight
or passengers for points south of Ash

on time, with the strike extra running
between Portland and Ashland on the

A great deal of freight for Portland
has been held in the Kust awaiting
htpment, and merchants are anxious
to have it started. Orders have gone

SAN FRANCISCO, July" 17.-The
Southern Pacltlo company continues to
run passenger trains more or Wr.i reg
ularly during the hours of daylight,
but nil the night trains are still being
abandoned. For the present but one
west-bound and one east-bound over
land train a day will be run on the
Ogden route. Non-union train crews
are not flocking to division headquar
ters end this Is probably the reason
why so few freight trains are being
moved, The first fruit train dlspntched
for the east since the strike was or
dered by Debs waa sent out of Bac-
amento this morning.
Sacramento, Cal,, July 17. The rall-
oud company Is meeting with consid
erable trouble tn getting out trains
this morning. Yesterday crews were
easily obtained, but for some reason,
presumably through fear, only a few
trainmen put In an appearance this
morning, A dozen or more switchmen
who worked yesterday, . quit today.
They claim the strikers waited upon
them last night and threatened to kill
them If they continued In the employ
of the railroad company. As far as
can be ascertained, only a few men
aro working In the shops. Several
hundred who returned to work yester
day morning, tearing violence nt the
hands of the strikers, did not go near
the shops today. Trouble Is feared at
Dunsmulr this morning. Division Su
perintendent Wright received a dis
patch from a railroad official at that
place, informing him the strikers were
In an ugly mood and requesting that
additional troops be sent there. Col
onel Graham was notified and a spe
cial train with sixty regular on board
left for the scene.
Information has come to military
headquarter to the effect that threats
have been made, presumably among
friends of Worden, against the life of
oung Sherburn, who drove Worden,
Hatch and othera over to the treatl
where the train was wrecked last Wed
nesday. Sherburn I at present kept
at military headquarter under
heavy guard, He 1 not allowed to go
out and few are permitted to o him.
It I said now that hi testimony will
be sensational In the extreme at the
preliminary examination at Woodland
tomorrow, and that detail of th
crime which hav been purposely aup
pressed, then will b mad public.
Sacramento, July 17, Th Portland
express, tied up at Dunsmulr on th
second day of th strike, left there last
