' Federation t'aaw ml pllt.
Striking employes are united In the
rplnlon that the greatest and practi
cally the only principle Involved In the
struggle I the recognition of their
federation. Heretofore the railroad ba
dealt only with the Individual unions.
vhll they are willing to continue
their relation with the aeveral unions,
the Harriman Interest are opposed to
"dealing with them aa a federation.
Tht Is virtually the pivot upon which
the entire situation revolves. It Is not
question of wages or hours or of
working conditions.
. The union are well prepared for a
long-drawn-out struggle. Their Inter
national organization liaa ample mnl
to finance the campaign, and enough
ynoney to pay benefits to all the men.
After the first week, the men wl'.l
start to draw allowances from the
union treasuries. This averages a
k for the married men and I a
week for the single men.

In spit of the strike order, a -few
Tnen continued at work yesterday.
These were either non-union men or
deserter from the union rank. The

ever, with the extent to which the men
answered the call. A few real old men

8everal non-union men yesterday
joined the ranks of the strikers, saying
that they preferred to cast their lot
with their associate to remaining at
work during a strike.
Though the sl.or at La Grande were
reported here yesterday to have been
deserted, official deny they are hiring
strikebreakers to replace the 102 who
went out Many common laborers are

at La. Grande are watched closely by

Following the assurance of local
j strike leaders that the dispute between
1 the railroad shopmen and the Harri
man roads would be conducted orderly,
the pollca committee of the Executive

With apparent reluctance the. men In
the Albany carhops and roundhouae
collected their tools and working
clothes and left the shop. There was
no vindictive spirit and several said
that they were opposed to quitting, but
believed that the principle involved
necessitated the walkout.

the Inspectors there, yesterday morn
Ing. "The railroad company haa aald a
great deal about lta pension system,
and haa led the pnblto to believe that
all old employe are pensioned. But
we personally know of Instance where
old workmen, who have grown gray in
the service of the company, have been
turned out without a pension. Knowing
these thing from the Inside, we are
forced to fight for recognition of our
federation to protect ourselves. We

low a letter from County Judge Wor
den. of Klamath County, relative to a
recent order emanating from the ex
ecutive office, placing a quarantine

Veterinarian. Concerning the condi
tion In Klamath County the County
Judce write:
"Relative to the recent order emanat
ing from the State Capitol compelling
the dipping of cattle In Klamath Coun
ty on account of supposed scab or a
disease so called, supposed to be prev
alent here. I wish to say that after
careful Investigation on the part of the
County Court and various capable and
conservative atockmen throughout
Klamath County, we are unable to find
any evidence of this disease.
"The order la going to work a great
hardship upon the people of this county
for the reason that many of them raise
and sell their hay each Fall, depending
thereon for their livelihood. The prea-
ent order prevent the bringing of cat
tle here from other localities to leea
the same.
-The County Court therefore ug-
gest that you chanr fhla quarantine,
so that only cattle which are found to
be afflicted with thl disease will have
to be dipped. In euch action you will
have the support of the County Court
snd a large majority of the people of
Klamath County. The altuation la a
aerioua one here and you should take
quick action."

W. I Park, vice-president and gen
eral manager of the Illlnola Central. Is
sued a circular to employes of the road
tonight, characterising the demands of
the men as radical, relating the story
of the negotiationa and charging that
the contracts between the men and the
unions had not been abrogated by the
necessary 10 days' notice. He added:
"It Is well known that the Interna
tlonal officers of at leaat some of the
crafta supported our position and bit
terly oppoeed violating their contracts
by consenting to cell a strike on the
Illinois Central. The conservative
aeemed to be In the minority, however.
and thl Is on of the most uncalled
for walkouts of labor in the history of
hls country. The shopmen at Mem
phis and New Orleans quit their work
In defiance of the Instructions of the
same grand officers responsible or call
Ing the strike.
"The Illinois Central ha not sought
this controversy and haa no quarrel
with organised labor aa such, but It will
use all Its resources at its command to
retain such control of the management
aa will enable It -to continue the exer
clae of the public functions for which
It waa created and which aubsequent
events have ahown it could not have
continued to exercise, had the manage

Traffic Official Declares Less Than
Half or Employes Quit.
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10. Com
parison of reports from the shops of
the Harriman system Indicate tonight
that the atrlke order affecting the
Federated Shop Employes was more
generally obeyed in the East than on
the Pacific Coaat. In the district in
the Jurisdiction of E. E. Calvin, vice
president and general manager of the
Southern Pacific Company. 10,000 men
are employed In the shops and a state
ment leaned tonight from tbe office of
the general manager said a fraction
leaa than 10 per cent of these men
obeyed the strike order.
Calvin's Jurisdiction extends to Ash
land. Or. on the north, to Sparks, Nev.
on the east, and to El Paso, Tex. on
the south The statement appllea to all
ahopmen embraced In tMa territory.
In San Francisco the strike order waa
more generally obeyed than In any
other of the large ahops on the Coast,
almost every man walking out. In
Oakland, Cal. about 1200 men are em
ployed, of thla number about 400 being
unorganised repairmen. Of the car re
pairers about 11 per cent went out. The
awitchmen quit work for an hour, but
went back again and their future
course probably will be decided at a
meeting tonight.
In contradiction to the statement of
the railroad officials, Ernest Leguln,
president of the Federated Shop Em
ployee In this city, asserted tonight
that the situation was more than satis
factory to the strikers and that it ex
ceeded expectations. He said that here
tl per cent of the men went out.
In Sacramento, where are situated
the largest shops of the Harriman llnea
on the Coast, only about 400 of more
than 1000 men went out. The labor
leadera expressed the belief that this
number would be greatly Increased by
Monday. In the atrlke of 1894 the men
employed in Sacramento went out al
most to a man.
From Loa Angeles It was announced
tonight that labor leaders announced
that 1600 men had walked out. repre
senting the employes of the Southern
Pacific and of the Salt LaKe Railroad
shops, the employes of the latter num
bering 220. This estimate Is about 300
less than the number announced by the
union leadera directly after the strike
order went Into effect this morning.
The railroad officiate said that there
were only 1007 men at work In the
shops yesterday and that nearly 400 of
them remained at work today.
Superintendent Piatt, of the South
ern Pacific, said tonight that between
2S0 and 100 men remained at work In
the Loa Angelea ahopa and that these
are aufflclent to do the work necessary
to enable the road to transact business.
No Disturbances Mark Suspension of

SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 10. All of
