The Riot in Oakland. '
Oakland, July 16. About 1 o'clock
this afternoon a freight train waa started
for Mendota. Strikers interfered, pull
ing pins from the drawbeads and cut
ting the air pipes. The police and mil
itia charged the crowd and several per
sons were bayoneted, one of them be
ing a woman. The first intimation
received at the camp that the presence
of troops was required was brought by
an orderly from an outpost, who rushed
into the presence of Lieutenant-Colonel
Geary, stating that the strikers had at
tacked a train and were proceeding to
destroy the property. The long roll
was at once sounded, and troops were
rushed to the scene of disorder, where
the outpost guard of the cavalry had . al
ready put in an appearance. The sol
diers came to "port arms" and began
operations by pressing the crowd back
alongside the train. When the soldiers
finally reached the first crossing, the
first company wheeled into line to pro
tect the street from the crowd. The
other companies continued to march
down Cedar avenue, and on reaching the
crossing there turned into Gross street,
where a crowd of several . hundred 'peo
ple was slowly, but. firmly, kept mov
ing. Whenever an obstinate spectator
was encountered persuasive force was
employed to bring him into submission
with bayonets fixed. Women mixed
freely with men, and elbowed their way
where they could obtain the best view
of the conflict.
Midway down Seventh street from
Cedar avenue the soldiers rushed into a
crowd pursuing them to the door of a
house kept by a man named Monroe,
and which is said to be. the headquar
ters of the strikers. When the. soldiers
first appeared on Gross street there was
a wild rush from the street. The gen
eral excitement which seized the spec
tators also affected the soldiers. Even
women were not exempted from the
street. One of them, Mrs'. Haley, a
corpulent, middle aged woman, was too
slow in making her escape, owing to
which one of the soldiers prodded her
with his bayonet. The troopers charged
up Cedar avenue, urging their horses
into the hottest of the charge.
Among others charged on by the sol
diers was a blind man named Fleming,
who had just arrived from San Fran
cisco, and was going down Cedar avenue
when the crisis occurred. Unfortu
nately for himself he was for some time
carried along by the crowd until the
corner of Cedar avenue and Goss street
was reached, and the soldiers then came
along and arrested him, and he, with
twenty others, were conveyed to the
guardhouse, which had been improvised
in a tent. Subsequently, all the prison
ers were turned over to the police after
a sensible speech from Colonel Geary,
explaining the position of the national
guard and the imperative necessity to
maintain order and protect life and
property. Fleming, the bund man,
was sent to his destination. A peculiar
feature of today's excitement was that
whatever duty had to. be done in the,
suppression of the attack on the trains,
the federal troops were conspicuous bv
. ineir absence. i h military Hi.nia,
was entirely by the national guard.
Approved by the House.
Washington-, July 16. With less than
half an hour's discussion and with prac
tically no opposition, the house today
adopted the following resolution, offered
byMcCreary, of Kentucky :
"'That the house of representatives
endorses the prompt and vigorous efforts
of the president and bis administration
to suppress lawlessness, restore order
rand prevent improper interference with
, the enforcement of the laws of the
United States, and with the transpor
tation of the mails of the United States,
and with interstate commerce, and
.pledges the president hearty support,
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
and deems the success that has already
attended bis efforts cause for public and
general. congratulation." ' ' , ', '
. The resolution, was opposed by Pence,
of Colorado, and conditionally by Bland,
of Missouri who denounced the actions
of the federal officials in bis ovfn state
as wholly unnecessary. Pence criticized
the attitude and action of Attorney-General
OIney toward and upon the recent
troubles, charging that he had ". selected
a railway attorney of Chicago, as special
assistant district attorney, to prosecute
the strikers and their leaders in that
city. ' He also refered to the charges in
democratic papers that Olney was the
representative of corporations and
trusts, as reason why he should not be
in the position he occupies, and why
his action Bhould not be approved. The
resolution was advocated byMcCreary
aud Hutcheson, and passed by an over
whelming viva voce vote. A call for
the yeas and nays was unavailing. The
republicans took no part in the debate.
Agreed to Disagree.
Washington, July 16. The demo
cratic members of tbe tariff conference
committee adjourned earlier than usual
today, and the situation at the time of
adjournment, from the best information,
was that the conferees were far from an
agreement, and that within a short time
a disagreement will be reported to the
senate and house. The question which
has been agitating tbe members seem to
be just what kind of a report to make,
but an impression seemed to be prevalent
that it would be of a general disagree
ment, with, perhaps, some of tbe main
points specified. It bad not been de
cided to call the republican members ol
tbe conference when adjournment was
taken, but it is possible a full conference
may meet tomorrow or next day. It
was evident from what could be learned
that the meeting showed a tendency to
get further apart than before, and the
discussion of .the. main question . showed
there will have to be instructions from
the : respective houses before tbe con
ferees will feel warranted in yielding the
positions they have taken from the first.
When the . conference adjourned, one of
the conferees summed up the, situation
as follows :
"We have accomplished nothing to
day. We have not advanced an inch,
and, after being together all day, we are
exactly where we were last Saturday."
Receipts Greater than Expenditures.
Washington, July 16. Receipts from
internal, revenue so far this month
amount to $16,664,537, as against $8,197,
915 during the same period last year.
The almost unprecedented increase is
no doubt due to the expectation that in
the pending' tariff bill the tax on spirits
will be materially increased. The re
ceipts from customs for the first half of
tbe present month amounted to $3,-535,-000
which is 5 per cent more than last
year. For the first time in many
months the receipts of the government
are exceeding the expenditures, the ex
cess so far being over $2,500,000.
. Many Lost Their Jobs.
St.' Louis, July 16. National. Di
rector M. J. Elliott admitted . today that
so far as St. Louis and vicinity are con
cerned, the, union has lost the contest.
According to Director Elliott fully one
third of the strikers have returned to
work. These, with the new men em
ployed, almost fill tbe vacancies. The
situation is the same on both sides of
tbe river. The erstwhile strikers are
makiDg every' effort to get back to work,
but so far as their former employers are
concerned, while a large number of men
will have to wait, until business picks
The Troops in Northern California.
. Washington, July 16. Governor Mc
Connell of Idaho has telegraphed Sena
tors Shoupand Dubois that the strikers
have re'used to allow any trains to be
run to Coeur d'Alene, and that the
troops there must be retained, and pos
sibly others sent to .reinforce them.
The Idaho - senators were informed by
the eocretary -of war. that the tropps
would remain in North Idaho, and that
more would be sent to the scene of the
trouble if it is deemed necessary.

The Cholera Virulent.
London, July 16. A dispatch to the
Times from St. Petersburg says the
cholera epidemic is assuming alarming
proportions. The present visitation of
of a more intense and more fatal charac
ter than waa the outbreak of the two
previous years. . The disease bas even
penetrated into Finland, which has
hitherto been free from cholera.
IN SPANISH THEATERS.
Even the Babies Love the Drama In the
Cities of Spain.
; After a bull fight, the Spaniard loves
the theater best. A true Spanish
home is so dull that Spanish men and
women alike scarcely ever spend a
quiet evening in their inner circle.- It
is not to be wondered at, therefore,
that they should prefer to leave their
uncomfortable rooms to get warmed
and dazzled for a few hours in the
glare of the teatro. It is there, also,
they see their friends and continue
their habitual tertulia or gossip. Even
the children, writes Dulcineo del Toboso
in North American, love the drama,
play or sainete, and on Sunday after
noons and feast days . their mammas
deck them up in finery and take them
to see the latest sensational play. It
is curious, indeed, to watch a box full
of baby faces keenly interested and de
vouring a terrible drama full of har
rowing scenes or laughing at a Short
play full of wit and piquant jokes. It
does not seem at all natural to see chil
dren taken to these spectacles, but
Spanish children are little old men and
Women, andja fairy pantomime would
be too dull for them.
A. Clever Stratagem. ..'
Once during the Iron Duke's cam
paign in the Pyrenees, it happened
that Gen. Picton's dispositions . for re
ceiving the assault of Marshal Soult
displeased him. . The danger, threat
ened from in front, and the difficulty
' lay in delaying the attack until Well
ington could effect the change he
wished. . He was, as ' usual, equal to
the occasion.- Waving his hat in the
air he galloped to the front of a regi
ment as if he meant to order a charge.
The whole of Picton's line cheared tre
mendously, and as the roar died away
-Wellington was heard to remark, half
to himself: "Soult is a cautious com
mander and will not attack in, force
without' ascertaining the meaning of
these cheers. . That will leave time for
the Sixth division to coma up, and we
shall beat, him." This was exactly
what happened, and Soult sustained a
bloody 'repulse where he might have
won an easy victory.
S. H. Clifford, New Gassel, Wis., was
troubled with neuralgia and rheumatism,
his stomach was disordered, his liver
was affected to an alarming degree, ap
petite fell away, and he was terribly re
duced in flesh and strength. Three bot

his leg, doctors said he was incurable,
one bottle Electric Bitters and one box
