A Cowardly Crime at Sacramento
Two Killed and Six Wounded
There This Morning.
Shot From Arabuh.
Sacramento, July 11. Train No. 4,
bound for San Francisco, was ditched
two and a half miles west of Sacramento.
Fireman Clark was shot by the strikers
and three soldiers wounded. Four of
the cara are in the water under the
The engineer, Bremen and three sol
diers were shot and killed by the strik
ers after the train was wrecked. The
strikers did the shooting from ambush.
It has since been ascertained that
the strikers, after tearing up the rails,
waited the approach of the train. They
were concealed behind the dense brush
which skirts the road at that point, and
as the train was a short distance from
them they opened fire on the regulars
with their Winchester rifles. Engineer
Clark fell at the first fire, and before the
regulars could respond the train was
ditched. A later dispatch received at
the railroad office states that four regu
lars were injured by the ditching of the
train. Engineer Clark was shot in the
shoulder and will recover. The fireman
The supports of the trestle had been
sawed away, but the rails were intact.
The moment the train' went on the
bridge it was ditched. Strikers then
fired, into the engine and killed the en
gineer, fireman and several soldiers.
Reports in regard to the number of
killed are conflicting, but the above
comes from authentic sources.
Immediately on receipt of the news
here General Graham ordered a com
pany of cavalry to the scene. They
were instructed to carefully watch the
strikers and prevent them from inter,
feriug with the trains. The fact that
only a few strikers are in the vicinity of
the depot indicated that they have de
termined to prevent the moving of trains
from distant points. It is known a large
number of strikers left here last night
for Davisvtlle, and railroad officials are
positive that they are responsible for
the ditching ot the train this afternoon.
At 2 :30 this afternoon railroad omcials
were notified that three men were killed
in the wreck. They were Privates

Done Upon Olney's Instructions.
Washington, July 11. The action of
. Judge Grosscup in Chicago today, in di
recting Debs' papers seized last night be
returned to mm, was the result of a
telegram sent to Special Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Walker, this morning,
Attorney-General Olney, upon reading
the press dispatches of the seizure, im
mediately indited a telegram, took it
over to the preeident at the White House
and filed it himself by 11 o'clock. The
telegram read ;
"Seizure of Deb' paper's is not accord'
ing to law. . It should be publicly dis
avowed and the papers at once returned.
Even if the seizure were strictly and
technically lawful the papers should be
returned. The government in enforcing
the law, cannot afford to be itself lawless,
nor even if it be within its strict rights
should measures be resorted to which
are unusual and come dangerously near
invasion of personal rights. The govern
ment is too strong and its cause too
righteous to warrant or require anything
of that nature. Please wire at. once
what has taken place and what, is done
in pursuance of these instruction."
i Debs in Court.
Chicago, July 11. Judge Grosscup
sent for Debs and District Attorney Mil
christ today. "Mr. Debs," said the
judge, "stands accused in this court of a
grave crime, but he has all the rights of
a private citizen. . His private affairs are
not to be inquired into, and if you - have
in your possession any. private, papers or
'Highest of all in JLeavening Power. Latest U. Si Gov't Report. V '
letters or other documents of that char
acter it is your duty to return them."
Milchrist said the officers had taken
papers which they should not , have
seized. This was due to the excitement
of the moment. He stated the letters
had 'not been opened. Debs said he
was satisfied with this statement of the
district attorney. "I desire to thank
the court," he said, "for the kindness
and consideration and protection given
me." ' He then accompanied Milchrist
to the latter's office and the letters whi-ih
were seized last night were given him.
All the, books of the railway union
and records filling a large basket were
kept for the use of the grand jury. The
indictment -against Debs and others
contains but one charge, that of inter
fering with the mails.
The L'nion'n Caution.
Oakland, Cal., July 11. President
Roberts has issued the following notice
to nrembers of the American Railway
"It is rumored that a secret organiza
tion calling itself "the Avenger" has in
anticipation a project to dynamite and
mutilate Pullman cars, pretending to be
doing such unlawful acts in sympathy
with our association. Now, I take this
method of warning you all of tbe danger
to our cause by countenancing such acts
of violence and lawlessness, and charge
each and every member of our organi
zation to closely guard and protect all
railroad property in whatever place it
may be, and for whatever purpose it
maybe used, so far as it is in your
power to do so. While we are all
pledged not to handle or haul ' Pullman
cars, it is none the less our duty to use
all reasonable efforts to prevent the
distraction of property and all acts of
lawlessness. And we furthermore call
upon all good citizens to Aid US' in bur
endeavors until such time as all these
matters can be amicably adjusted."
, Started for Sacramento at Iast.
San Francisco, July 11. Governor
Markham arrived from Los Angeles on
the steamer Santa Rosa this morning.
He did not waste a moment, but boarded
the steamer Modoc and started for
Sacramento. He will council modera
tion and do all in his power to have the
whole matter submitted to arbitration.
One of the strikers said this morning :
"Governor Markham is a great iavor-
ite with all ot the railroad employes.
He has a lot of influence with them, and
he may succeed in persuading them to
arbitrate. He is to use all his influence
with the Southern Pacific, and be may
be able to settle the trouble, but I doubt
it." ' .
A Restraining- Order at St. Joseph.
' St. Joseph, Mo., July 11. Leading
members of the American Railway
Union here have been served with an
order by the United States marshal re
straining them from interfering with or
obstructing the business of any lines of
railway entering St Joseph. The order
was- entered upon application of the
railway companies to United States
Judge Philips, of Kansas City. The de
fendants are summoned to appear for
examination at Kansas City the first
Monday in August.
The Cruiser Chicago Damaged.
Washington, July 11. A cablegram
received at the navy department con
firms the report that the cruiser Chicago
was in collision this morning at Ant
werp with the steamer Azoff.' The dam
age is estimated at $12,000, and as the
Chicago was at anchor at the time, the
owners ot the Azoff will have to pay the
damages.. The collision, occurred off
Austerweel. The . bow of the Azofl
struck the Chicago amidships on the
starboard side, bending and breaking
the latter's plates: ' '
