THEIR PRECAUTION .
PROVES DEATH TRAP
' anpednl Dttpelrh to the Jnornal.)
Seattle. Wash., July 24. Tied In th
rigging of their upturned fishing, sloop,
the bodies of two men were found by
th steamer Arrow in extreme south
eastern Alaskan waters last Thursday.
In ths hops of Saving themselves In, a
. frightful storm 'and bellcvljig the winds
would carry them In safety to the shore,
the two, J. Malone and Charles Thum
burg, laahsd themselves to ths spars of
ths little ' craft It capatsed in the
heavy seas. , Their precsutlorf proved a
death trsp. Thumburg's mother lives
in Med ford. Or. .... . ...
Ths fishermen had been Cruising all
sunmer on the flablng- banks A week
ago they left Lowe Inlet for 'a short
trip. Then ths weather gave promise of
being good, but a herd blow that night
carried them far out of their course,
and it was probably at ths height of
the storm thst they, aa a last resort,
lashed themselves to their boat ".The
captain Of ths Arrow cut them free, -snd
the two corpses were taken to ths near

Oolden at noon today had received no
reply from the telegram a which lis had
addressed the various members of the
national committee and to ths teamsters'
headquarters at Indianapolis asking. for
sanction to strike. . ,
. Orea,t Mass Meeting. '-' .:
This forenoon there was a great masi
meeting of strikers In a hall near the
yards. -Eight thoussnd men attended it
and ths crowd wss augmented. ty syra
pathlsers ' until it overflowed into the
vacant lots adjoining.-
Finally regular overflow ' meetings.
were - organised and speeches ana de
bates were taking place in half a. down
places simultaneously. Ths . meetings
were unaccompanied by threats of vio
lence, but In fear that anarchists' might
seek to address the crowd, plain clothes
policemen . circulated through -. th
throngs at ths different meeting feeling,-
aa It were, ths pulse of th crowd's
temper. . , . -
In almost all cases th meetings wer
sddressed by union leaders who asserted
that they had no complaint to make as
to th situation snd buoyed the hopes of
their- hearers by declaring that whlls
the strike might last a few weeks It was
certain that victory would mark ths end.
. Pack are forestall Engineers.
The packers, it' developed this morn
ing. : have -.forestalled ths engineers'
strike by making arrangements to use
electrical pbwer. Bo far this reooiirse
has not become necessary, aa they have
had sufficient steam in their boilers to
carry out ths limited amount of packing
that Is being done. '.
Almost at ths very; time th strikers
were -holding their meetings ths packers
wer In conference, and their action has
dons much to sdd to ths gravity of the
situation. Troubled as affairs were' be
fore and constantly promising lawless
ness, ths strsln was put almost to th
breaking point through the' packers
themselves, who choss a poor tlms to
maks any statement of other than a
conciliatory nature. ..... .
Regardless of diplomacy and . appar
ently with no deslr except to show
their defiance, the packers Issued a
statsment to ths publlo in which they
declare that-all negotiations with ths
striking butchers, and' craftsmen who
are out on a sympathetic strike, are
closed and thst under no circumstances
will they be reopened. - v
' Unions Betaliate,
Following ths packars' definite ulti
matum, ths striking butchers threw out
their picket lines and covered svsry im
portant point about ths district and be
gan to use tactics, hitherto not em
ployed. ' s . . . . ,
The' packers' announcement had th
effect of further Irritating the" strikers,
who at once abandoned all hope of a
peaceable settlement and practically de
clared war. .
At the Laurel street entrance to thal
stockyards the pickets, stopped throe
wagons destined for - Armour's and
turned them back. The teamsters drove
to their headquarters but mads no complaint,-
President Oolden Immediately
protested to the butchers' officials.
At 1 o'clock ths prospect for disorder
and possibly bloodshed was Increasing.
The packers hsvs used up nearly all the
surplus csttle in ths yards belonging to
the commission men and In ths future
will order all cattle assigned direct,

cattle from ths cars to the killing

In but four cities of the United

In this city it registered 100 degrees; In
Fresno. Cat. 108; in San Diego, Cel., 194;
in Red Bluff, Cal., 102. and in Yuma,

thermometer went as high as 101. -
So far as learned there was only one

When the weather was at Its sultriest
about 4 p. m.. John Joyce, driver of a
city water wagon, was overcome and fell
from his seat to the pavement - He
struck tbs pavement bead first and sus

For a time It looked as thoagh naviga
tion of ths Willamette river was going
to be blocked. . Th rail In th steel
bridge began to expand, and some little
tune elapsed before the draw could be

Finally blocks of wood were driven be

ths draw from the other sections of th
bridge snd by turning on more power
the tenders succeeded in opening a pas

down the river. "Ihe blocks of wood

District , Forecaster Beala attributes
the high temperature yesterday to a
freak of nature. He says it is one of
those unaccountable conditions which

Another feature about It Is ths fact that
th hot area was confined entirely to
the Willamette valley. Beyond the Cas

was being experienced.
At 10 o clock this morning th tem
