GONE TO SACRAMENTO
Troops and Gatlins: Guns on Steamer
CONCERNING BRICKS IN LIVINGSTON

On their Way to Sacramento.
San Francisco, July 10. There are
many conservative men of affairs here
who fear and believe that tomorrow will
develop a deeperate conflict between
federal troops and the striking American
Railway Union men and their allies.
Sacramento is the threatening point.
The seriousness of. the situation is shown
in the. warlike precautions that the
army authorities have taken. Dp to 11
this morning the federal authorities had
made every move in secret. At about
that hour the big ferry eteamer Alameda
steamed out from the Oakland mole and
steered directly across the bay to the
Presidio wharf. At 11 :45 the steamer
had effected a landing, and there was all
the noise and bustle of a hasty embarka
tion of horse and infantry. Two troops
of cavalry and five batteries of light
artillery were rushed on board. Gatling
guns and two HotchkiBS cannon were in
evidence, and Colonel Graham, com
mandant at the Presidio, was personally
in command of the expedition. The
Alameda with her formidable-looking
cargo steamed direct toward the month
of the Sacramento river, but so guarded
Jad the army's movements been that it
fc'aa not known until ebe entered the
river channel whether her destination
was the state capital or Oakland. It is
probable that the troops can be landed
at Sacramnnto before midnight. .
The publication of President Cleve
land's proclamation extending the con
ditions of the military regime to Calif
ornia, caused intense, excitement in
Sacramento, but this afternoon when it
became positively known that Colonel
Graham and soldiers to the number of
300 were en route to reinforce the state
troops at the capital, the excitement
there became wild and ominous. The
strikers grew loud in their threats to
resist any further attempt of the troops
to clear the railroad yards and depot,
and their leaders loudly proclaimed that
the Southern Pacific Company would
not be permitted to move its trains.
Nor were their hostile demonstrations
confined to talk alone. Armed "men
soon appeared on the streets. As if in
preparation for battle, they transferred
their guns and ammunition from their
storehouse on J street to their head
quarters nearer the railroad yards. No
attempt at concealment was made. -.The
strikers marched boldly through the
streets, bearing their weapons on their
shoulders, and they were loudly cheered
by hundreds of sympathizers. It is
claimed that the American Railway
arsenal holds at least 1600 rifles and
shotguns and quantities of ammunition.
The strikers who came into the city on a
train, seized at Dunsmuir brought over
200 rifles which they had collected at
"Dunsmuir, Red Bluff and Sissons
Another train from Truckee also brought
in guns and ammunition. This after
noon a number of strikers were practic
ing with their rifles on the Yolo side of
mere are now over suuu strikers in
Sacramento to resist the federal and
state troops. Flushed with their victory
over the United States marshals and
police on Tuesday last and a complete
victory jover more than lOOO state militia
on the following day, they are in just
the mood to resist United States regulars
tomorrow. The steamer Alameda, with
300 soldiers from the Presidio, arrived
at Mare island this afternoon - and took
on 300 marines. There the Alameda
steamed around the point and the men
were transferred on two Sacramento
river steamers, which had been lying in
wait.1 " One troop of cavalry was landed
on each bank and will march to Sacra
mento along the river as an advance
guards to the boats. General Graham
while at Mare island, received orders
from Washington directing him to pro
ceed to Sacramento, and teaving the
conduct of. the whole campaign to his
discretion. It is anticipated that the

strikers will attempt to interfere with
the progress of the troops, but as each
boat carries Gatling and Hotchkiss guns,
an attack from the strikers on the river
is not feared, and. the guard on shore
will prevent offensive operations there.
Theie was some idea of transporting the
troops from Vallejo by train, but as soon
as the strikers at South Vallejo heard
they were coming, they killed all the
engines, .ditching one, and spiked the
witches, tnus ettectuany DiocKing trie
This afternoon the crews from the
Charleston, Monterey, Thetis, Marion
and Independence were landed at Mare
island for riot drill. They comprise
about S00 men, and will leave for Oak
land tonight. In case of general prepa
rations of strikers for resistance, the at
titude of the locomotive engineers is
attracting attention. Representatives
of that brotherhood wa; ted upon Gen
eral Superintendent Filmore at Sacra
mento this" morning and announced
that they were ready to return to
work at a moment's notice. Superin
tendent Filmore promised to notify
them if he decided to accept their ser
vices. At all points in the state, save
Sacramer to, and possibly Oakland, the
events of today have turned in favor of
the railroad company. At Oakland
trains were moved; The strikers and
railroad officials there are anxiously
awaiting the appearance of the United
States marines that have been ordered
to that point. In this city and San Josa
passenger traffic was resumed today
over the coast division. Railroad offi
cials say freight trains will be moved
tomorrow. At no point on the coast di
vision was violence offered by strikers.
In Southern California the blockade is
broken. Local trains are running on
the Santa Fe, and the Southern Pacific
dispatched its Los Angeies passenger
train for New Orleans. A. passenger
train will be sent north from Los An
Debs Under Arrest.
Chicago, July 10. The federal grand
jury, after receiving the charge of Judge
Grosscup this afternoon, returned in
dictments against. Eugene V. Debs,
president of the American Railway
Union,; George W. Howard, its vice
president ; Sylvester Keliher, secretary,
and L. W. Rogers, one of its directors,
and shortly afterward the men were ar
rested. They are charged with conspir
acy to commit an unlawful act in at
tempting to block the United States
mails. Joined in the indictment with
the four leaders of the railway union
was James Murwin, -, the Rock Isl
and striker who threw the switch
which derailed a mail train at Blue Isl
and on the night of June 30th. Debs,.
Howard, Keliher and Rogers were taken
to the office of District Attorney Mil
christ immediately - after, their arrest,
and after a few hoars' detention were
released on bail by Judge Grosscup,
their bonds being $10,000 each.
While wafting for bail to be arranged,
in an interview Debs said : "We have
been placed under arrest to answer to
an indictment found against us by the
'ederal grand jury, on which we are ac
ensed of conspiracy to commit, and of
committing offenses against the United
States by obstructing and intercepting
the mails of the country. Since I have
been brought here, I have been in
formed officers of the court have gone to
onr headquarters and taken my personal
correspondence and some of the records
of the American Railway Union. I do
not know by what right this act has
been committed. Not only did they
take my personal effects and papers,
but carried with them my unopened
mail. It is an outrage, and you call
this a free country. It seems to me not
to be compatible with the stars' and
stripes. It is no- longer a question of
right in this country, but a question of
force, and a resolute forcts at that.'
Troops on the Way to Sacramento.
Vallejo, Cal., July 10. At 3 o'clock
this afternoon the steamer Alameda ar
rived at the navy-yard with Brigadier

and 50 sharpshooters, 50,000 gallons of

Hopkins Censures Pullman.
Chicago, July 10. "It is labor lost ;
not fifty mayors would have the slight
est effect on the Pullman Company,"
said Mayor Hopkins when asked if May
or Pingree, of Detroit, had asked him to
become one of the fifty mayors to join
in an appeal to George M. Pullman to
allow the differences between him and
hia men to be submitted to arbitration.
"Mayor Pingree thought there was no
need of asking me to join him in such
an appeal," said the mayor. "My po
sition is pretty well known. But fifty
mayors will have no effect on the Pull
man Company; no, nor 150' nor 500.
Everyone is ignored by this company.
However, it will tafce Pullman, years to
recover from this trouble. He will fin,j
he is boycotted without unft in action or
effect by the American people. The
business will go to Pullman's compet
itors. Then he will realize the mistake
of his position today."
Coast Trains Pass Billings.
St. Paul, July 10. Day passenger
trains are running on schedule time.
No night trains will be run on the Du
Iuth branch to Omaha until the road is
sure of protection at Schooner. All the
wires have been cut at that place and
the situation is thought to be grave.
The Northern Pacific coast train passed
Billings, Mont., today.
The mayor of Livingston telegraphed
General Manager Kendrick : "Don't let
a train pass Livingston ; if it does not
a brick will be left standing here."
Kendrick replied : "The train will go
by. If interfered with not another brfck
will ever be laid in Livingston." The
train passed Livingston without moles
