Tlilhlt They ttavu f;t'l<lonce Gnnngh to «;rmvlct On« of the Suspects— Strlku New« BAN FHANOISOO, July 13.— Since Wednesday's horrible work at the trestle I west of Sacramento the strike situation J In California has been less alarming. In Oakland there was rioting of a more or less serious natnre during Thursday. The trouble began at daybreak, when a fnob of several hundred strikers rushed into the yards on the mole. They killed all the locomotives that had been tired tip «nd in order to further block the tracks derailed one locomotive and a long line of coaches. Later in the morning another crowd of strikers ran to the yards and wrecked a turntable by flhoving a heavy freight car into the pit. Damage was also done at the roundhouse. The railroad company's deputy sheriffs and deputy United States mar. ehals offered very little resistance to the "'riotous strikers. The trouble came to an end in the evening, however, when a ' force of H50 United States marines from Mare island were landed there by the ferry steamer Alameda, which transported them from the navy yards. This force of marines is under command of Lieutenant Commander Will- It. Boeder, executive officer of the crtiiser Charleston, and is drawn from the crews of the Charleston, Monterey, Thetis and Independence. The equipment includes five G-atling guns and several Hotchkiss cannons. The marines are to act under the direction of General Euger and will be supported by a company of artillery from Presidio. At Sacramento the "conditions of martial law prevail. No trains are running there, however, and General Superintendent Fillmore stated »bnt no more regular trains would be run before Sat- tirday, by which time ho hopes to have repaired the trestle. The wreckers have not recovered the bodies of Engiuoor Clarke and the three soldiers who lie in the water beneath the wreck. The people of Sacramento are practically living under a military government. Hmivy Reward! OIToroil. Colonel Graham has thrown a cordon of troops around the railroad property, and citizens are not allowed through the lines. Along the railroad and in the Vicinity of the disaster, cavalrymen and •quads of infantry are scouring the tnles and underbrush. Several suspicious characters found in hiding there have been arrested and pnt in a guardhouse at Sacramento. Spurred on by the heavy rewards offera for the apprehension of the men responsible for Wednesday's disaster at the trestle, the peace officers at Sacramento are unusually active. The railroad company has offered a reward of ffi.OOO. Attorney General Olney has offered $2,000 and Governor Mark- bam has offered a reward of $500. The sheriff's men are confident that they have evidence enough to convict one of the men now in custody, a striker named Worden. A boy has been found who drove Worden and several other men to the bridge where the train was wrecked. The boy declares that these men carried wrenches and a crowbar and that they wore heavily armed. He says that when the men left hit wagon, before walking to the trestle, they shut him in a boxcar on a sidetrack and warned him to stay there until they returned. It was not until the lad returned to the scene after the wreck that be realized what had been done. He positively identified Worden. Other arrests will be mode. The trains are running regularly out of San Francisco on tho ooast division. In southern California the blockade is broken, though very few trains are ran there without a military guard.

LISTENED TO PRESIDENT DEBS, Tells Them What Hut Seen Done In the Or cut Pulltnan boycott—Number of Sag - gestionR ftelnff Considered—Telegram Sent to Prcaldent Cleveland—Dobs' Strike Telegrams Read to the Grand Jury, CHICAGO, July 18.—The strike situation throughout the country Thursday was in general one of quietness. The central point of interest has been the meeting of labor leaders with President Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, at their head in this city. It is admitted that the action of that body, if | taken unanimously, will have marked effect on the situation, and persons well ] informed as to the opinions of the persons composing it express the opinion that unanimous action by it, except in the action of quieting the present agitation or turning it into other channels, is unlikely. It is known that several suggestions are being considered by these leaders. Among them are the following: First—That the striking Pullman em- ployes on high patriotic grounds, appeal to President Debs to declare the strike off because of tho infinite damage which is being done to the business of the country. Second—That tho leaders unita in an appeal to the public to quit patronizing Pullman sleeping, drawing room and dining cars. Third—That President Cleveland be requested to appoint a commission to investigate the strike and the causes which led up to it in expectation that the report of such commission would justify the action taken by the strikers, and free them from the charges of rioting and disorder. Fourth—That immediate efforts be made to secure the impeachment of Attorney General Olney. Fifth—That an effort be made to secure the passage of a compulsory arbitration law by congress. Sixth—That complaints be lodged looking to the indictment of the railway managers for conspiracy to obstruct the movement of United States mails by refusing to run mail cam except in connection with Pullman cars. The conference sent a telegram to President Cleveland requesting him to come to Chicago or send a representative. Deb* Addreises the Conference.

Owou for Debs was introduced by Mr. Gompers and told in detail the history of the strike. He then went on at length to tell what had been done in the boycott, of the number of people who had gone out as) strikers and of the sympathizers who had come forward for their encouragement. He explained the line of action here, in Chicago and elsewhere throughout the country. He said he was much elated over the work which had been accomplished. The A. R. U. had brought about one of the greatest strikes this country bad seen, and he hoped to see it carried through to a grand success. He had no doubt that this could be done most effectually with the alliance of the American Federation of Labor and the other labor organizations. He asked the federation to give the A. R. U. whatever assistance they could in the work they were doing on the part of the workmen of this country. Immediately after his speech Mr. Debs retired to his hotel, leaving the meeting still in session. The conference lasted until 19:30 a. m. and was marked by several heated arguments, the hotheads be ing in favor of a strike atonco, while the most conservative counseled moderation, No decision was reached, however, and the meeting adjourned for the night. AI the close of the session President Gompon was asked if the Federation of Labor wonld be willing the present strike should be called off, relying on the moral force of the government to effect arbitration. Gompers said: "To call off the strike would be for one of the parties, that one of conre the workingmen, tc surrender and after peace was restored there wonld b« 'nothing to arbitrate'" At the conclusion of Mr. Debs' speech j Mr. aouipors took the floor and spoke at some length. He counseled moderation and while avowing the most profound , sympathy for the Pullman employes ai well OH for the A.

Mitch Speculation a« to tlin Probable Action of Conference TnrllT Committee. WASHINGTON, July 1H,—The air about both houses was full of rumors as to what had been done by the tariff conference committee Thursday. The most persistent of these rumors was that coal and iron ore were to be restored to th« free list as they were when the bill passed the house. The members of the committee spoken to on the subject after the adjcrjrnment declared no action had been taken upon these two items and- they went so far as to declare they had not even been discussed. They made the same denial of another story which was current to the effect that changes had been decided upon in the sugar schedule. Ever since the Democratic members of the conference committee began their meetings last Monday without inviting the Republicans to be present there has been manifested a disposition on the part of the Republicans of both honses to criticise this partisan method of proceeding and this dijaatisfaction took shape Thursday in the introduction by Senator Halo of a resolution calling at- ention to the failure of the Democrats o call a full conference of Democrats and Republicans. Senator Hale said the resolution was the effect of an under standing among several Republican sen stora. He expressed the opinion the resolution would develop an interesting debate in the senate. 'This proceeding by the Democratic conferees is," he said, "unprecedented in the history of our country. The law says conferences between managers on 'he part of the two honses shall be full and free and contemplates that they shall be held after the appointment oi managers. The meeting between the Democratic senators and members is practically unofficial. We, of this side >f the chamber, think we have a right to mow what is being done with so important measure as the tariff bill am nave decided to make our opinion known." Sen >te Rushing Bunlneu. WASHINGTON, July 13.—The appropriation bills are fast being considered and at the present rate of progress, it is probable nest week will see them all disposed of. Thursday two more important bille were passed—the army and the fortifications bills—while some progress was made on tho river and harbor bill. The only interesting discussion of the day oc cnrred during the consideration of the army bill. Several bills of minor importance were passed and conferees were appointed on the military academy and the diplomatic and consular appropriation bills. Rudnon'i Arbitration Bill.

Sailors have more than their fill of irango sights nud strange experiences, lie fact that we on shore hear so little bout them is owing to their absolute ommonness, from the mariner's point f view, and it is only when some acoi- ent accompanies the occurrence that, aa rule, we ore treated to any details bout it. Big waves rnnk among these expert- nces. We do not refer to those waves which are tho immediate consequences f high winds and atmospherical dis- urbances, but to those single waves of mnieuse height which show themselves uddeuly in the midst of a sea compara«- ively smooth. A vessel may bo sailing, long in fluo weather, and with no swell u worth mentioning, when, without he least warning, come*sweeping along a wave that towers like a mountain, falls n the deck and carries.awayeverything movable, members of the crew among the rest. The steamer San Francisco was onco struck by a tidal wave of thia ort in tho gulf stream and 179 persons wept into the sea and drowned. In ilarch last all the crew save one of tha >ark Johonn Wilhelm were washed overboard by a single wave. In June, ast year, the shipHolyrood encountered another such sea, which is said to have risen up "suddenly like a wall,'" and to mve flooded her decks fore and aft. Tho Innarders Etrnria and Umbria have loth encountered the phenomenon, and he former had one man killed and sev- >ral others injured. The case of the Pomeranian will be fresh In the minds of all. Sometimes these waves are the result of submarine eruptions and loud earthquakes occurring iu close proxim- .ty to the sea. An English bark crossing the north Pacific met one of these big waves, and .mmediately afterward the ocean seemed ;o be boiling, and the sulphur fumes ;hat emerged from the water were so E«werful as to drive the crew into the rigging. Certainly there was on eruption' here as the ship sailed over, and tho wonder is that the great wave did not do more injury. Again, the American schooner Dora J. Ward, while on a voyage to Seattle, Wash., from Copper island, was soiling quietly along when suddenly she was lifted as if a whale bad struck her bottom and then experienced n succession of shocks which cost everything loose about her decks and knocked the crow off their feet There wero a few big waves succeeding tho main one, and then everything waa smooth again. The biggest solitary wave ever known was that caused by tho Peruvian eorth- quakcjof Aug. 13, 1868. In no other instance, we ore assured, has it been known that » well marked wave of enormous proportions has been propagated over the I'irgcst ocean tract of tho globe by an earthquake whose action has been limited to a relatively small region, and that region not situated in the center, but on one side of the area traversed by the wave. At Arica it was 50 feet high and enveloped tho town, carrying two warships nearly a mile beyond tho railway to tho north of tho town. The single sea traveled northward and westward Its height at Sou. Pedro, iu California, was 60 feet. It Inundated tho smaller members of the Sandwich group, G, 300 miles away, and reached Yokohama in tho early hours of the morning after taking iu Now Zealand on tlio way. It spout itself finally iu tlio south Atlantic, having traversed nearly the whole globe. A singular occurrence was reported recently by tho English, ship Luoipara. She was about midway, between the capo and Australia when she encountered a hurricane. About midnight of Aug. 4 lost the sea suddenly full almost calm. "It appeared aa if tho sea was affected by BOUIO tremendous pressure," when, suddenly tho whole vessel, fore and lift, was ouveloped in shoots of flanio that rose half way up tho musts and overran tho (looks for three-quarters of mi hour.
