President Cleveland takes a Patriotic Stttiid Against Anarchist Altgeld—Declarations'. by Att'y-dan, Olney, and Others. The present strike has been the ocea- sion for a broader assertion of authOr- itybj the federal government in the suppression of railroad strikes than was ever before made. The fact that this assertion has been made by a democratic administration renders it unlikely that it will ever be receded from. The interference of the President is for the purpose of protecting the United States Mails and inter-state Commerce and aiding United State Marshals in enforcing the orders of the fedefal courts. United States Judges Grosscup and Woods, Whose jurisdiction covers Illinois and most of Indiana and Wisconsin, have joined in a writ of injunction restraining all persons from interfering with the operation of mail trains and trains, whether passenger or freight engaged in inter-state commerce. This was the most sweeping exercise of federal judicial authority ever promulgated, and it made every act of violence in restraint of railroad operations an act of contempt of the United States courts, an d punish able by th em. * # * ' CLEVELAND TO ALTGELD Governor Altgeld of Illinois has contributed to the documentary literature of the strike ( two long letters to President Cleveland, demanding the withdrawal of the federal troops and arguing that in sending them into Illinois he had transcended his constitutional authority. To the first of these epistles the President responded as follows: EXECUTIVE MANSION, WASHINGTON, July 5,1894.—John P. Altgeld, governor of Illinois, Springfield, 111.: The federal troops were sent to Chicago in strict accordance with the constitution and laws of the United States, upon demand of the postoffice department; i ing United States troops at a safe distance. "Resolved, by the senate and house of representatives of the United States of America iri congress assembled, that no warrant or other process, civil or criminal, shall be issued by any United (states commissioner dr out of any circuit or district court of the United States against any person or persons tor the alleged obstruction of any railroad train or trains unless it shall appear that such persons or persons have odstructed or hindered such train in such manner as to interfere with the safe and convenient movement of the train or trains, as is essential to the safe and convenient transportation of the United States mails; the detachment of lullman or other parlor or sleeping coaches from any railroad train or trains shall not constitute any offense against the laws of the United States. To a request from A. E. U. men at Duluth that he support the above resolution Senator Davis sent the'folio-w- ig Very emphatic response: To D. D Molnnis, Duluth, Minn. I have received your telegram. I will not support Senator Kyle's resolution. It is against your own real welfare. It jsablow at the security, peace and rights of millions of people who never have harmed you or your associates. My duty to the Constitution and the laws forbids me to sustain a resolution to legalize lawlessness. The same duty rests upon yourself and your associates. The power to regulate commerce among the several States is vested by the Constitution in Congress. Your associates have usurped that power by force at Hammond and other places, and have destroyed commerce between the States m those particular instances. You are rapidly approaching the overt act of levying war against the United States, and you will find the definition of that act in the Constitution. I trust that wiser thoughts will regain control. You might as well ask me to vote to dissolve this Government. C. K. Davis.

[Signed.] ., GBOYER CLEVELAND. Altgeld's second lengthy telegram of expostulation was sent at a time when the strikers had full possession of the railroads and when apparently no effort was being made by the state militia to restrain them, The President's reply to this was brief but suggestive, as follows: Hon, Jno. P. Altgeld, Governor of Illinois, Springfield, Illinois; While I am still persuaded I neither transcended my authority ro duty, in the emergency that confronts us, it seems tome in this'hour ofjdanger and public distress, the discussion may well give way to active effort on the part of all jn authority to restore obedience to law and protect life and property, (Signed,) GROVER CLEVELAND, The commission created by the'regiji- lature to provide. for the erection^ of •'$ monument at Spirit Lake to commemorate the Indian massacre at that place ? ?r h- ?';.

The base will be 14x14 feet. Above this will be two massive^ections, then the die upon which will appear the inscriptions— on one side the names of those killed in the massacre, : on another the names of the relief party, on another a brief historical statement and on the other words denoting that the monument was erected by order of the 25th general assembly. The shaft at its base will measure 5x5 feet. Each alternate section of about two feet will be polished, the intervening one to be left natural. The top will take the form of an Indian arrow head, From base to point the monument will be of eastern granite. The conuract figure is $4,500, including an iron fence about th,e monument. The Beacon does not liesitate to express the opinion that in the adoption of a design, and the selection of material the commission has chosen wisely, and that they have made a most excellent deal for the state. The monument is to be located a short distance south of the Gardner cabin, where a lot 100x180 feet has been dp'nated by the Okoboji South Beach Company, of which Col, Gatch, of Des Mo-jnes, is president.
