Says There Is Politic* In It. •WASHINOTON, July «,—Thursday even- £ig President Cleveland received a tele- igram from Governor Altgeld of Illinois, •cUmanding that federal troops be imme •diately withdrawn from that state. It was as follows: •"lam advised yon .have ordered fed- *raltroops to go into service in the state of (Illinois. Surely, the facts have not been correctly presented in this case, 01 you would not have taken this step, for it is entirely unnecessary, and, as it seems to me, unjustifiable. Waiving all questions of courtesy, I .will say that 4be state of Illinois is not only able to take care of itself, but it stands ready today ito furnish the federal government •ay assistance it may need elsewhere. Our military force is ample ,ond consists of ae good soldiers as can be .found in the country.. They have been ordered promptiytwheuever and wherever they were needed. We have stationed iu Chicago alone three regiments of infantry, one ibattery «nd one troop .of cavalry already, and no better soldiers can be found. They have been ready every moment to gc.on duty, and have been, and are now, eager to go into service. tiisys There Is Politics 1st K. ••They ham not been ordered because nobody in Oook county, whether official or private citizen, asked to have their as- •istanoa. Bo far as I have been advised (he local officials have been able to handle the situation. But if any assistance wore needed .the state stands ready .t» furnish it. Notwithstanding these facts tho federal government hut boon applied to by men who tod political and selfish motives for wanting to ignore the state government. Weihavejustgaito through a long coal strike more extensive Iteru than iu any other state. Wehuvenqw bad 10 days of railroad strike mul wv wave promptly given military aid wherever the local authorities needed it, ID two instances the United States marshal for the southern district of Illinois •which worked a number of men who did Hot belong to the railway union and who could run an engine. They were appealed to to run the train but they flatly refused. We were obliged to hunt up soldiers who could run an engine and operate a train. Sheriff Didn't Need Mllttta. -."Again, two days ago, appeals which •were almost frantic came from officials of another road, stating that at an important point on their line trains were forcibly obstructed and that there was a reign of anarchy at that place and they asked for protection so they could move their trains. Troops were put on the ground in a few hours time when the officer in command telegraphed me there was no trouble and had been none* at that point, but the road seemed to have no. men to run trains, and the sheriff telegraphed he did not need troops, but Would himself move every train if the company would only furnish men to run them. The result was that the troops •were .there 14 hours before a single train •was moved although there, waa no attempt, at interference by anybody. It is .true that in several .instances the road made efforts to work a few green men .and A crowd standing around insulted >them and tried to drive them away and in a, few other cases they cut off Poll* man. can from trains. But all these troubles were local in charactei and could easily be'handled by the state authorities. .•Newspaper Aeeonats KxMgerated. '{Illinois has more railroad men than any other state in the Union, but, as a role, they;are orderly and well behaved. This ia shown by the fact that so very little actual violence has been committed. 'Only a very small per cent of these tuen have been guilty of any infractions of .the law. The newspaper account* havein.many cases been pure fabrication?, and. in others wile! exaggerations. I have.gone thus'into details to show that it is, not soldiers that are required BO much, as men to operate trains, and the conditions do not exist here which bring the. cause within the federal statute—a statute that was passed im 1861, and was in reality a war measure. This statute authorized the use of federal troops in.a state whenever it shall be impracticable to enforce the laws'of the United States within such state by the ordinary judicial process. Such a condition does not,exist in Illinois. "I repeat that you have been inrnoi en m this-matter, but even if lay afor< construction it were held that the oondi tions came within the letter of the statute; 1 submit that local self government is a fundamental principle of our const! tution and .to absolutely ignore aloca government in matters of this kind, no only insults the people of this state by imputing to them an inability to govern themselves or- an unwillingness to en force the law, but is in violation of a basic principle of the constitution. The question of federal supremacy is in no way involved. So one disputes it for a moment, but under our constitution fed eral supremacy and local self govern ment must go hand in hand, and to ig noretlie latter is ,to do violence to the constitution. "As governor of sthe state of Illinois, 1 protest against this and ask the im mediate withdrawal.of the federal troopt from active duty jn <this state. Should the situation at any time get so serioui that we cannot control it with the state forces, we will promptly ask for federa assistance, but until snob time, I protest With all due deference against this on called for reflection upon our people ant again asked the immediate withdrawal of these troops."

Not a shot was fired; not a man was pricked by a bayonet, which argues that With force enough the soldiers would have done the work expected of them.

At one time they set fire to a signal tower and an interlocking box, though the flames were extinguished before serious damage was done. In two instances there was bloodshed. On the Western Indiana tracks a hard pressed special policeman fired at his pursuers, wounding a striker in the leg. On the Lake Shore road an official of that company in charge of a train which he was endeavoring to force through, emptied his revolver pointblank into the massed strikers about him wounding two or three, it is believed.

When tt opened there was a general feeling that its passage would go far toward clearing the atmosphere if indeed it did not practically lift the embargo on commerce which has held this city in its grip for a week. That expectation was caused by tho presence of federal troops iu the most dangerous districts. Tho situation at the close of the day is such that it must be admitted that the hope indulged iu this regard bos not been justified. The troops were few in numbers tit best uud when they were divided into squads and distributed at points separated by considerable distances, it soon beoiiuie evident that their prestige as overawing bodies had been dissipated at tho same time. I'luyetl All forts of H«Uro»a«r«' Tricks. Instead of flaoiug in fear before the faces of the soldiers, as was expected they would do, the turbulent thousands surged about the, little band, jeered and tioutod ut them, cast vile epithets at them and literally played hide and sook with them, stopping trains at will and generally rendering the embargo in the military distrlut wore effective, if potisj. ble, than before, The throngs of strikers tliil not resist Uncle Bain's poliue. Again and again when tuere wore thousands of them about a train, which it was sought to move, they gavo way like water before the leveled bayonets of u •Inglo company of infantry or the tramp* ting of a single squad of cavalry. Like water, too, they closed in again at a point just beyond. They turned switches, derailed freight ours iu fiont of the slow moving trains and pluyfd all sorts of railrouderti' tricks, with which the soldiers were uuaoquuiuteu. Thutt it was that the troops ut tho stookyards in perseverance and patient* spent the entire day in a vain endeavor to get one train load of dressed beef out of sight of the starting point. Another and pleusuutoy this experience showed, and that was the ttdinirable ooolueas, self and Ml control of tke troop* Birennan went down to the Lake Shore rojid with an offlc al of the road, intending to go to the stockyards. • Their course was' obstructed and they were compelled to, finish the journey on foot. Of the striking men it'may be said the situation has broadened. On the Big Four, on which iV was presumed traffic would be resumed immediately, it is practically tied up. At Joliet everything is practically at a standstill because the yardmen have gone out and the city waterworks have shut down for lack of coal. The federal troops quickly put an end to the ttoubles at Baton, N. M., arresting a laige number of strikers. '•"'.'.^Majror Hopkins' Proclamation. Afper a .personal inspection of the scenee.of viplence near Fortieth street Mayor Hopkins returned to the city ball, and for a half hour was closeted with •Cai-poYfttton Counsel Rubens. At the expiration of'their interview a letter was dispatched to Chief of Polios Brennan and the following proclamation issued: The evenb» of the lust B4 hours render it necessary extraordinary measures be takou to pri'Bevve penco nud order. The mayor of the city of Chicago has the legal right to demand the services of every able bodied man in tho city and to call out the militia, if necessary, to suppress riots or other disorderly conduct, and ho will certainly exercise every power vested iu him by law for the protection of property and the preservation of the public peace. Ho expects every citizen to do his duty in preserving the peace by avoiding all places where crowds are coiiKrexated, to Attend strictly to hie own particular affairs and to see thut nil women and children are kept away from the public streets and rail way tracks. The mayor Intends t* enforce every law of the state and ordinance of the city, and ho confidently calls upon tlii- poodle of Chicago to aid him iu bin elTin-u ia this behalf. If the well disu'tsecl comply with his request, as herfin indicated, h* will no doubt flnd a invatiH of preveuMug tho evil dliposed from violating the laws.

JOHN P. HOPKINS, Mayor. Tho mayor baa instructed the chief of police to suspend all police officers who were in the liuko Shore and Michigan yards und did uot interfere with the strikers who overturned freight cars by score. "The immediate cause of the issuance of my proclamation was tho overturning of cars on the Luko Shore and Michigan Southern railroad," said Mayor Hopkins, "Thut sort of business must bo stopped. I dusire that my luttur to Chief Breiumii in reference to tho duty of polico be pub- llshod, so all ofllcura may road it.
