On account of the action of the Mil waukee in handling Pullman cars and refusing to withdraw from the managers* association, a general 6trike on that road was ordered, but the men returned to work at r p. m, A committee, not mem bers nt the union, waited upon the union officials this aft^.ioon to try to nave the strike order postponed until a definite an swer could he secured fioin the company, but the request for a delay was refused and th« order is now in effect. The men, however, will not strike until morning. The action of General Manager Newell of the Lake Shore, In worklhg the switch tower for Rock island trains caused the uition oourd to declare a strike on tliat road this afternoon, strikes were also declared on the Nlckle Plate; the North ern Indiana; Big Four, and the Colorado Midland. On the Big Four, the complaint is that the company has Pullman cars at Cincinnati. The order for a general strike on the ticmld systems was also issued this afternoon. On account ot the Micm gan Central being, a memner of tne Man agers' Association, a strike was ordered on that, road, -and almost immediately a number’of yardmen and roadmen went out on a strike. It was reported at union headquar ters that the railroad people had asked the Western Union and Postal Teiegrapih Companies w supply men to take the places of the striking opera tors on the differentd irtslons, and acting'on the same the union officials ar threatening >to cause a strike among Western Union operators who have re cently Joined tihe union. A general tie up on the Union Pacific has been at- temped, and the men on the Chicago Grea/t Western have been ordered out. Union officials say 'that there Is noth ing ';n the reports ifhat the employes of the Chicago elevated roads and the street car lines have b.-on asked to strike. A complete tie up was reported on «0he oMnon as far south as La,- fuyette, Ind. .Late' -tomight it was an nounced that an understanding Jhnd been -arrived at by- the union otiidhls and the grand officials of the Fore men's Broftherthood, whereby all fire men would be permkted to act either in ,a body oi individually In support ing the union. Strikes among the fire men will be ordered on all roads fn consequence. The engineers of three divisions in Chicago hive agreed to take advantage of the .interpretation of Lhe rules by Chief Arthur and re fuse to work wl3h green crews. What Is looked upon as a. significant move on the part of the 'capitalists, as the union deai-gnates all employers, wan the visit -to headquarters today of p. H. Studebaker of Stwdetoaker Bros. Mr. Studebaker is a large tttockholder in the Pullman Company, and while the conference between he and the union officials was secret It was given out that it was for the purpose of ar ranging for a meeting tomorrow. It is not known whether the subject will be a compromise witih the Pullman Com pany or a protection to the Studebaker works. The strike assumed such prominence today tha*t over ten roads abandoned nH autempts to run any but in.ill and passenger train*. Freight bu.wiess 1a almost entirely suspended and many^goads have refused to accept business'or any nature. The suburban service on all of the railroads except the Milwaukee has practicably been abandoned. The general managers of the roads centering In the city met Ir* executive session at 12:20 o’clock -with the pros pect of a prolonged meeting. Half an (hour Later an official iitauan*nL_®aa. is sued in which the managers say it is useless to deny that the strike is wide spread and serious and that it haa. em barrassed the fffelght traffic of the West to the most serious extent of any strike since the Eastern labor troubles of the 70’s. At the same time the roads have no intention of entering into a compi’o-' mlse with the strikers on any- basis whatever and they regard the men on a strike as employes who have resigned their positions and who nre not anxious for work. The companies fall to see the justice of the position taken l»y the American Railway Union of fighting Pullman Over the heads of the railroads that have no control over his move ments or his manufacturing business. A later and supplementary statement says men aro being hired In the East and will be brought to Chicago at once to take the strikers’ places and gu.*.ran-| tees to all unemployed permanent posi tions and the protection of yht com pany, police, sheriffs and state/ autho.

Washington, June 3(f.— Secretary Her bert issued an order [today suspending all work in navy yards that is paid for out of appropriations / for the Increases of the navy. This Is caused by the fail ure of congress to pass a naval ap propriation bill, Attorney General Ol- ney agreeing wfrth /Secretary Herbert that the Joint replution extending currency appropriations does not cover the matter. Ships qow building under contract, 'including the ba jtlesnlps antt* the armored cruiser Brooklyn, are not uffivt^d, nor wfll die repairs Dot pvo> grassing In the governni- ok yanln be terminated, but the Maine. Texas, Cin cinnati and Raleiglh must remain un touched until furilrer congressional action is secured. The naval bureaus haw kept barely within their appropriations, not over $30,000 remaining to theflr credit today, but they may continue ttie services of clerks and workmen for another monrh, using a portion!of the 3150,000 made available b>J the Jplnt resolution, was feared at} first /that all naval pairs would bef shutf d*nvn ami tht barely sufficient ;mondy remained to keep lhe yards closed ami maintain an ffleb-ru force of watchmen. In that nergency U would have been tieces- ry to call on the army to guard na il property. As u is, offly W.*or 500 bjrkmen will suffer from the order filch the secretary was compelled to S3B«. iJL.. ii r ; c 3 d Ai d In 1- 1 R ant atf to make it impossible, by rea- the gret expense that would have tobe incurred in collecting '9he /evidences of their commendable progress In the mechanic and other useful arts. The location of Atlanta is certain for them to do that which was lmpojjdble at Chicago. The colored peoi^A|e living In peace and friend- B'nli^Vh their white fellow citizens ajnd^piy are working out their des- bln^^n such a mauner as to elevate thetnselves In -the scale of humanity. The white people are deeply concerned In/improving the moral and material otmditlon of the negroes and they are doing everything possible to .educate them and to advance Ohedr religious oind social well .being. The race prob-* eiu, if it ever existed, has been solved 'and the whites and blacks in their re spective spheres are working amicably to build up the South. "The donhant wealth of the South cannot be exaggerated. The industrial possibilities pf the Southern states are limitless in every field .of human en deavor—in agriculture, fn mining and In manufactures—no other part of the Union affordd like opportunities for In vestment and profitable development In coal. Iron, marble, granite, cotton and timber and in climvte and water power the South is the richest country in the world. These facts are forcing themselves to the attention of invest ors and there is no more certain way to impress them upon the public mind of the country than through the Instru mentality of the proposed national and International exposition at Atlanta. "Il-nry W. Grartv. th* brilliant and accomplished young Georgian, whose genius and patriotism were appreciated throughout the Union, died while liter ally 'loving the sections Into peace,' but h(s spirit still lives among the people of Georgia and animates to deeds of noble enterprise. "The Atlanta exposition 4s national and international In its purposes and aims, embracing all the states of the Union and the republic of Mexico, Cen tral and South America, Cuoa nnd the \\Vst Itultv. I r, nM-b-r it the duty «>f congress to make the appropriation were the sum twice ns great: It could not be appropriated to a national enterprise | more, worthy of the support cf the fed* • eral government nnd the patronage of all intelligent and patriotic American citizens." HIS SPEECH WAS.WELL RECEIVED He Diclarnd lltmaelf » RtinMatllat at * Ilatlo or SO to l->.tn Inlvieitlng Colloquy Ulih m Mnu iu the Audieneo* Atlanta, June 30.—Hon. Henry G. Turner practically opened his cam paign for the tinned States senate i>u a speech litre tonight. His candidacy has been announced for some iplme, but this i« the first speech Jnlge Turner has delivered in Georgia »liice he entered the contest. Thu pthvru Jn the race are Senator Patrick .Walsh, who w.ia appointed to succeed tlie late Senator Alfred if. Colquitt; A. O. Ba con and Loots F. Garrard. Speaker Crisp may also enter the race. Judge Turner ha-I a large audience at Do Give's Op ra House. He was intro duced by fiqa. N. J. Harpmond. Judge Turner was received with flattering applause. / : . « In his spt*ech he declared himself a bl-metallJsi at aie ratio of 20 to 1. He declared I<^r the Tepeal of the-10. per cent, tux on state banks and for tariff reform. Itjs theme was the capad'ty of the Dcncra.dc parity to do business. On the financial question he spok? as follows: * ."What about silver? In 1893 the rep resentative men of the country, voicing the desires’ of both sections, met to gether for the Liurpose of reconciliation, and the result was the Democratic platform on which we marched to vic tory. A. number of my colleagues' in the house Hook the position 'that tJho parity and Interchangeuble value of gold and silver oould be secured by the free coinage of sliver in the ratio of 16 to 1 and so voted in tthe special Ijos- slon. I did not believe that suoh «. par- Ky could be restored on the basis of that ratio*, and I furthermore be lieved i'Jhnt instead of checking the coinage of*sllver the people desired to have more silver put Into the coin. I voted for u- ratio of 1?Q to 1, not that. I was satisfied with such ratio as a permanent thing, tou't only as a be ginning. 1 have seen it qharged in the nowspapefb and have heard It pro claimed from ttoe platform that by re pealing 'thfe purohaslng clause of the Shermanwt we had struck down haiff of (the money metal of the world. Tho charge is Ridiculous and absurd. We repealed 'purchasing clause because of flhtt panic which -It brought upon this country—*the greatest, • perhaps, ever known Iff its hlwtory. We divided as to the colmage of silver, but where is the man who can furnish the true basis of agreement on which the whole oountry, with Us diversified dfltereets. can be united?"’ A * "The free coinage of silver, shouted a man In the audience. • . "On what ratio?" inquired Judge Tur ner. * , "Sixteen to one," replied the unknown speaker. . , - „ "That would never do, my friend, resumed the judge. "It would be tolly to adopt such a ratio. You may as well cut the yardsticks of the country in two as ttuadoptt such a ratio in the hope of securing a parity. Would it be fair to all concerned for a mtn who owns a mine to go to the government nnil convert his sliver into double its intrinsic value nnd put the proceeds in his pocket? And yet such would be the result if an insufficient ratio of this kind waB adopted. "Tlie Democratic party of *thls coun try is a blmetailJjrt party. Mr. Bland, who started the silver question, has just reported a 'plunk in his own state fer readjustment. The platform of tho state of Georgia also contemplates a re adjustment in the hope of a restoration of parity. It is difficult to agree on a ratio because it Is not 'a locat but a universal question, in which the entire civilized world is interested. Gold is not a sufficient basis: the 'demand for sliver is ateidlly improving." BACON AND STATE BANKS. A Montezuma Correspondent Makes a Good Point for the Major. and Democrats fiyru. those sections feli unprepared to voo fer state bank« and a dual currency without further In structions from heir constituents. The measure was ahV presented and sus tained by the Soithern mamber*, and the moat able argiment on the subject was from Judge j.«wson cf Georgia. He gave to Maj. Bacon's remedy form nnd existence, breath'd Into (t the. breath of life nnd applied to the North nnd West to grant tlis tllof to the South. He pleaded for t*K» dual currency sug gested by Maj. Bacon and bogged that the notional barks and state banks be allowed to compete as rivals, giving to’ the people a istlonal currency and a local currency Upon this kubject I heard MaJ. Ba con remark i» few da vs since that touch ing this question "the fight was on" and would be pressed until the North yielded to the demands of the South. Ho regret*etl that our congressmen had nut begin this battle years ago, as it takes tl/>e and labor to gain clvio vic tories. Whet, the oool of evening came on the loquaaoua party dispersed, but nil agreed that It was beet to fight our battles within the party nnd that to fol low Hines and Watson was political sui cide for us. ns it would divide our poo- p’e.

A Wonderful Income From Southern Enterprises, -Chattanooga, June 30.—Tb* Trades man, in reviewing tho cotton seed oil mill industry of the South, gives a list showing the present number of nctlvo cotton seed mills to be 253, Texas lad ing with 89. Investigations prove that the best mills produce 40 gallons of oil, 675 pounds of cotton seed meal. 950 pounds hulls and 30 pounds of Uni cot ton, to the ton of seed. The mills exported In tlie year ending May 12. 1894. cotton seed to the value o-f #1.033; oil cake and meal to the vMc of $6.r,84. and oil to tlie value ot $5,203,675, mid In quantity over 6.000.000 pounds o-f seed, nearly 600,000,000 pounds of oil cake, and n-'arly 13,000,000 gnIlona of cotton seed oil, Tihe Tradesman’s -report shows that abmt 1,500,000 tons of ootton seed, that a few yeirs ago was a waste product, were reduced to oil, jncul. lint and hulls during the yea<r,t yielding over $18,000,000 to the farmers, and added about $40,000,000 to -the wealth of the country. The reports show the num ber of mills to be steadily inoreaMpr in the South. *- MORE ABOUT SANTO. Further Particulars o*f His Selection as the Slayer of Carnot. Paris, June 30.—A dispatch from Mar-* sellles this morning announces that a soldier detained in the military prison at that place, upon henring of the as sassination of the president, gave the authorities full details concerning tho plot, which was hatched nt Cette, and also furnished tho names cf seven An archists, who. after the execution of Vaillant and Henri, drew.ldts in order to decide which of these was to kill Carn’ot. The lot fell to Sanito Cesnrlo, which now seems to be the real name f the awmssin. the mistake in the In version of his name having resulted from the Italian custom of writing the family name first. Cesarlo is described as having been "wild with doy" when ha found’-that he bad been selected to commit the murder. THE SOUTHERN LEAGUE. HAWTHORNE RACE TRACK.

There is no statute on j which the Washington Park Club In- I dictment can be based, but the Jury In looking up the law found that boiling tripe or skinning fish may be indictable offenses if attended by unpleasant odors and reasoned that the smell from the stables must be unpleasant, and the in dictment was issued, THE SILVER QUESTION. • London. June 30.—The silver -question was brought up in the house of lords by the Earl of Uvlen'l attack upon the policy of closing the Indian mints. Lord Lansdawn, viceroy cf India from 1888 to 1893 defended this policy. The Times comments thus: "Whether | the nuMi-ure origiiully were right or Wrong, it would certainly be a mistake to reOp^n the mints until the present policy snail have been fully tried." * day has been Inexpressibly hot, and tlie boys 'fathered under the shade or tho trees and discussed the political situation.

The Demo* cyds aro to bLme for not giving tho country remedial legislation. But the delay is caused ty the unfortunate fact that what is remedial to t^o South is objectionable to the North. When in terests /dash results come stnwly. The query came up, whit remedial legislation clo we want? There being such a dearth of money the crowd agreed that more money was the South’s ne*dC Ir» what shape can we get it? The unsw«*r was thit if Mr. Cleveland’* view that .silver should not be added to the currency without inter national agreement, then our only hope was in the repeal of the 10 rent, tax on state banks, f.n thit thjf Scu’h cbuld supplement the national bank currency with a local currency. The acceptance of this view led to comment* on Maj. Bicon, who was tho first Hcutherner to urge the local cur rency as a remedy./ When silver was demonetized Maj. ,B.icon, with wonder ful foresight, wrot: u letter fifteen j";irs ago showing how the demonetization of silver would put the country In the power of the national binks; How con traction of the currency would foli’ow, bringing disaster to bus!n«->gi nnd para lyzing the entorpri*jes of <»ur people; how all value* would be depress* d, de stroying InduHtrU-f cau*!:ig prices to fall and prostrating ieulture, and (n view of these thlnfj ** urged upon our members of congress not to await lhe inevitable culUpze, but move at once (1878) for rtp4*J of the tax on state banks so as to prevent the d^ntterx which would Otherwise overtake the South.
