That the strike will spread to other labor unions to - night is practically certain. certain. The firemen at the yards, together together with oilers and others essential to the operation of the big plants, will meet to - night and will vote to strike if the situation remains as it is row. In that event the packers will be confronted confronted with a new obstacle that will be hard to overcome. , Carpenters, electricians and allied unions are also very restive over the delay in the negotiations lor a strike settlement and are in a mood to walk out. Meantime prices for meat are soaring soaring higher and higher, packers are increasing increasing their working forces at the stock yards, foreign speaking strikers, fired by liquor, are developing an ugly mood, incipient riots are going on in the streets, police are doubling their vigilance vigilance against violence and destruction of property, and the whole air is full tf menacing minors of trouble, prolonged prolonged and bitter. On top of all, vague but persistent reports are current that one - political faction is trying to foment trouble in the hope that federal troops will be called out, and that the opposing faction, faction, headed by President Roosevelt, is bringing tremendous pressure to bear to end the strike. ', There are kindred rumors that the packers relish the strike because it will give them a chance To dispose of their reserve product at a high premium, and that the labor leaders precipitated the strike on the verge of a Presidential Presidential campaign in the hope that President President Roosevelt will intervene, as lie did in the anthracite strike, and bring about a settlement advantageous to the men. i 'Not one of these'stories can be traced to any definite source. Louis F. Swift, speaking for the packers, said to - day there was no politics In the strike so far as the employers were concerned, and he expressed the belief that thert was none so far as the strikers are concerned. concerned. President Donnelly, of the butchers' organization, dismissed the subject of politics with scornful curtness. Notwithstanding Notwithstanding these denials, the rumors are spreading and finding credence. POLITICIANS ALARMED.

The packers re ject this proposition and propose as a substitute thai they re - employ the strikers as fust as they need them, preference preference being given in the order of application. application. President Donnelly objects to this plan for the double reason that it would tend to humiliate the men and would lay the unions open in the future future to a body blow from the packers. "The men must he taken back in u body or not at all," said President Donnelly and his associates. As to the wage scale, pending final adjustment of differences by arbitration arbitration the strike leaders insist on the pay that prevailed prior to May 28; In other words, unskilled labor to be paid tH'i cents an hour. Instead of 15 and 17 cents, the pike JWild after May 28. The packers insist that the temporary temporary wages shall follow the schedule in effect at Xhe time of (lie strike and that wap - es and labor conditions shall all be submitted to arMtivitors without restriction of any kind. ' Rejection of the arbitration proposal proposal of the packers was the result of a meeting held yesterday by President Donnelly and his chief lieutenants at the Briggs House. Present at this conference were President Samuel Oompers, of the National Federation of Labor, and President Morton, of the International stationery Firemen's Union.

"Every union man at the yards Will strike if the packers' do not yield," said President Morton. As ttie first step the stationary firemen will ask for an eight - hour day instead of the twelve hour day they now have. Mr. Gompers will direct the strike In Its entirety. He came here especially for that purpose. He will be assisted by International Vice - President Thomas and Thomas I. Kidd, of the American Federation of Labor. Donnelly ,will have full direction of the meat cutters cutters and butcher workmen throughout throughout the strike. ' , CHICAGO PREPARES FOR THE WORST. If the situation shall develop Into such a walkout as Mr. Morton outlines outlines here is none wise enough to tell what will happen. To - night Chicago is prepared for the worst, although still hoping a peaceful nettlement will be made. A large percentage of the men employed at the yards are for eigners, many of whom speak little English". Among them are men prone to impulsive acts of violence. They can be kept well under control when not inflamed with whiskey. President .Donnelly has an influence over them which 1b peculiarly strong, but he will find it hard to curb the passions of the ignorant If feeling once reaches the fever stage. To guard against an outbreak there is talk of closing all the saloons in the vicinity of the stock yards. This will not be done until the emergency emergency demands it, but that it is being contemplated shows with what concern concern the authorities expect a, long - continued continued continued strike. There was a suggestive evidence of the temper of some strikers yesterday, when a small fire broke out in the yards. The firemen on the way to the blaze were subjected to taunts and insults insults and there was at one place a show of interference, but no overt act was committed. This - may have been due to the close espionage of the police. When the fire alarm was sounded, a great crowd of strikers and their sympathizers sympathizers gathered at the yards. The police had a theory at first that the fire was of Incendiary origin, but it developed developed that crossed wires were to blame. Mumbled regrets here and there in the crowd that the blaze was so easily conquered gave a hint of an indercurrent of feeling that bodes no rood. ' The commotion that a small disturb - tnce causes in the 'streets demonstrates demonstrates to the police how weak is the barrier between order and violence. Official vigilance at the yards was redoubled redoubled this morning, owing to a small riot that took place late last night, when one striker was shot, three others injured and three policemen hurt. This disturbance was precipitated by an intoxicated man, who threw stones at the police. The police sought to arrest arrest him, and two strikers who were fighting each other. TROUBLE FOR SALOONKEEPERS. There was a small riot last evening in Halstead street, when strikers' pick - es tried to overturn a wagron load of bedding which they thought was to be taken to the packing plants for nonunion nonunion vorkmen. For a time, the situation situation was menacing, but vigorous work by the police quelled th trouble. Chief of Police O'Neill gave orders to Inspector Hunt, of the stock yards district, district, to close immediately all saloons w hich tolerate the presence of men who are intoxicated. The licenses of offending offending saloonkeepers will be taken from them. Chief O'Neill said he feared the bad whiskey, which Inflames the Poles more than he feared the feeling growing1 out of the strike issues. NEW YORK STRIKERS ARE CONFIDENT OF SUCCESS. New Tork, July 16. "We will win out. Within forty - eight hours ' the packers will have exhausted their supply supply and be glad to take back the men." was the declaration made today by H. L. Eichelberger, who has charge of the local situation in the butchers' strike. Anticipating further disorders in the slaughter house district, the authorities authorities sent extra, details of police to guard the district today. It is feared that any attempts to employ strike - breakers would result in violence. A gang of non - union men leaving Schwarschild & Sulzberger's were stoned last night and the police were forced to use their clubs to disperse the crowd. Eichelberger, Eichelberger, in specfklng of the outbreak, said : , "Jt was hoodlums who started the trouble. The union is not responsible. From the outset, my advice to the men has been to stay at home and Veep a.way from the packing houses. The packers can hire as many non - union men as they wish, but. it means more trouble for thern. Our men did not participate in the rioting. It is reported that many of the strikers strikers are anxious to return to work, but Eichelberger denies it. Sympathetic strikes are looked for if the butchers' strike is not settled. No killing has been done in any of the local packing houses since the strike, and the reserve supply Is almost exhausted. exhausted. OWNER OF HOUSE EVICTED BY HIS "NO BABY" RULE. Pes Moines, la., July 16. George E.

In Toklo the report is utterly dls - creaitea. - JAPANESE ARE WAITING. Affairs on land , near Taschi - Kao, where the opposing armies are massed lor a ciasn, are, according to dispatches at hand this morning, unchanged. The Japanese seem to be waiting for rein forcements under General Nodzu, and possibly for the column of General Ku - rokl to get Into a better position for a combined assault. On the Russian side, if reports received received are to be credited, it is a case of Inability to take the offensive and compulsion to wait till the onslaught is made and then put up the best de fense possible. . A most sensational report Is at hand from Chinese quarters this morning, which states that. General Kuropatkin is in a serious dilemma. He is said to have Inadequate forces with him to properly cope with the Japanese, and is accordingly retreating from point to point, hoping against hope that he may thus, - by avoiding a serious clash. eventually reach a point where heavy reinforcements will reach him and thus rescue him from the position, strate gically weak, in which he Is at pres ent. If this remarkable statement is authentic, Kuropatkin's present stand near Taschi - Kao must indicate that the Japanese have him in a tight fix, from which he can only escape by fighting. CHARGES AGAINST ALEXIEFF. The dispatch adds that much of his trouble is due to the acts of Viceroy Alexieff, who, it is said, js hampering Kuropatkin, his old time enemy, in every way possible. Alexieff is said to have stopped reinforcements enroute for Kuropatkin's headquarters on the flimsy pretext of desiring to look them over and see if they are in 'efficient fighting condition. . This attitude of Alexieff Is thought by many to be likely to prove a serious menace to Russian success in Man churia. The Times' correspondent at Berlin sends a dispatch this morning which he says contains news received from New Chwang, and which contains serious serious charges against Alexieff. The correspondent correspondent says: , VICEROY'S PRESENCE DANGER OUS. "The Viceroy appears to assert his right to retain a considerabe body of troops around his person at Mukden, much to the disgust of the officers, who are said to refrain from mutiny only from the consciousness that the representative of the Czar cannot be gotten rid of by violent means. Admiral Admiral Alexieff himself lives in his state car on the railway. A roof has been constructed over the car, and flowers have been planted around it. The VI ceroy countermands military orders and detains forces by Inspecting them and his chief of staff is sent two or three times a week to Taschi - Kao in order to observe the movements and disposition of General Kuropatkin. "The telegram from New Chwang de clares that only the Immediate recall of Alexieff can ameliorate this undesirable undesirable state of affairs, since at this Juncture the Viceroy's presence in the Far East is not only, useless but posi tively dangerous. JAPS OCCUPY MANY POSITIONS. St. Petersburg, July 16. Lleulen ant General Sakharoff, who is with General Kuropatkin's force, reports that the Japanese during Thursday and Friday occupied many positions. and placed cannon on the heights near the railway, north of Kai - Ping. There have been but a few skirmishes thus far. JAPS LOSE HEAVILY. London, July 16. A dispatch from Mukden yesterday reports that the Japanese losses aunng tne ngnting on the right flank of the defenses at Port Arthur on July 3 to 6, inclusive, were 2,000. The Russian losses were lnsignl ficant: The dispatch adds that the Russians drove back the Japanese and occupied the heights commanding Lun - santan .fass. St. Petersburg. July 15.

Bills, a Texas negro, who accompanied Loo - mis on the trip. When the body was washed ashore tode - it was identified by these and other papers which were found in . the clothing. As to the . disappearance of Loomls reports vary, One report had It that he was seen leaving the steamer at Plymouth while several of the steamer's officials claim they saw him On board while the boat was going from Plymouth Plymouth to Cherbourg. When the first report of the strange disappearance was made public, theories theories galore were advanced. First there was a theory that he had been murdered murdered and his body thrown overboard. Working on this Idea the police of Scotland Yard and of the French department department made inquiry regarding certain certain persbns who were known to have been in close company with the missing missing missing - man during the voyage. All inquiry inquiry in this line ended without a clew pointing to murder being discovered. A few days after the disappearance a man who had ' seen Loomis on board the Kaiser Wilhelm II. claimed to have seen him again on the streets of Paris. Later he said he bad been mistaken. The last theory, and the only which now seems probable, was that Loomls, in a moment of temporary aberration, committed Suicide. Two theories remained, remained, and either of these might easily easily be correct. Either Loomis committed committed suicide or fell overboard." No reason Is known why he should tike his own life, and as a result his friends are inclined to believe that he lost his balance while standing In a dangerous position and fell into the sea without any one noticing his fall. The dead man was manager of the Parkersburg, W. Va., Dally News. He was highly connected socially and in business. His wife had a child only five weeks before his risappearance, and the shock resulting from the Intelligence Intelligence prostrated her and for a time she was very low. The police say they have not yet officially officially Identified the body as that of Loomis, but they have small ddubt in the matter. The American consul is now en route to confirm the identification. identification. BROTHER NOT YET NOTIFIED, Washington, D. C "July 16.

The police authorities were completely completely surprised by this disclosure, for it came directly after the Coroner's Jury had rendered a verdict that Marzzo was killed by Tomaso Niglio, the woman's woman's husband. The police are also surprised, in view of her statement, that the woman did not confess before the inquest. The Italians Interested in this case are ignorant of English, and preserve a stolid demeanor when examined by interpreters. I The police are therefore having hard work to follow up their statements. According to Mrs. Niglio's statement to Detective Crawford, on the morning of last Saturday, Marzzo, the murdered murdered man, attacked her with a knife. He stabbed her in the right shoulder and forced her up the stairway leading leading from the first to the second floor of the house. A struggle ensued on the stairway between the man and the woman. Mrs. Niglio's clothing was torn and she received numerous bruises on her body and limbs from the fist blows of her assailajit. The wound in the shoul der and the bruises were all located by physicians. Mrs. Niglio wrested the knife from Marzzo's hand and thrust the blade of the weapon several times Into her as sailant's chest. He realesed her, stag gered up stairs, and fell dead at the door of her bedroom. Mrs. Niglio said that she then car ried the bodv down stairs and sewed It up in the mattress, in which It was found. She said that her husband. Tomaso Niglio; her son. Nicola, and Antonio Canfrangesa carted the body away and threw it Into the wissa - hlckon creek, where it was found last Sunday morning. Mrs. Niglio's confession flatly contra dicts that of her son, who declared that his father murdered Marzzo because of jealousy. The police accept Mrs. Nig llo'g story as true. RAILROAD TIME TABLES.
