A QUIET BUT DETERMINED STAND No Trouble in Any City OD Day, bnl Great Confidence in the Success of Bed Displayed at New York. CHICAGO, May 2 <lay, with Its dem- onstration by organized labor in behalf of the eight hour workday, has come gune, and the predictions of riot and blood- shed and an almost universal strike by thi trades have not been realized Labor, in dcod, was in a great measure suspended, but those who dropped their tools tor the did not do so for the purpose of up stick" and paving stones and indulging in riotous demonstrations. The Strike Fever Subsiding. The talk of strike at the stock yards IB a failure. There has been no concerted action toward ceasing work by the men, and the only trouble that is now feared is that the packers may refuse to allow some of the men participating in the parade to go back to work Squads of police were on duty at the various large packing houses, but YIW no call for their services. The decision to forego a strike at the stock yards ami the general idea among the Inmber shovers and others along the "black road" to let well enough 1 alone greatly diminished the ifangerof During thn last three days fooling in favor of a strike has been greatly allayed. A he miners' Conference. The conference between the coal opera- tors and miners lias thus far resulted in nothing When the joint committee met they were practically agreed upon a profit shin-ing system, the miners to receive the arale of prices of and to share in the profits above a certain figure. The committee reported to the convention at 2 o'clock that certain complications had arisen which made it impossible to perfect a plan at prcsnnt, And recommended an ad- journment and a study of the question, so that it could be put in operation next The Situation at Pittsbufg.

M'COY WINS. He Defeats Reagan Easily In the Tenth Round. LONG ISLAND Cm, N Y, May Kelly was chosen referee for the McCoy- fight last night after 9 long discus- sion. McCoy offeraLto bet Reagan he would win. Reagan did not accept. Mc- Coy then offered to to any man in the house, but no taker. In the first round Reagan rushed McCoy to the ropes twice, but no serious damage was done In the sec- ond round Reagan landed right and left on McCoy's face and rushed him to the ropes. McCoy looked tired. Tn the third and fourth rounds Reagan did the boxing, but was getting tired. Reagan did the rushing, but McCoy landed several upper cuts that seemed to tire Reagan 7n the fifth round McCoy Upjwr cut Reagan several times on the jaw. Rea- gan fought wild and was losing strength. In the sixth round McCoy smashed Reagan hard and all over the ring Reagan weak. Tn the seventh round Reagan waiuiedup and punched McGoy two blows to one In the eighth round McCoy landed nine blows, all hard, and Reagan made no defenwi gan was pretty groggy. The ninth round was slow, McCoy evidnrttly waiting for a vhance to get m a knockout. In the tentV round McCoy made twu hits on Rea- gan's breast and Reagan could not retiiiu a hard blow. The referee gave the decision to McCoy. Ralph Beaumont's Criticism. minors are nffeoled by thi change.

Shot Through the Body. Thomang 1 HE CHICAGO BEEF EVIL. An Exhaustive Repoi I from the Senate Coiiunittee. JlHMOUR'S STATEMENTS DOUBTED Committee's Investigation the of witnesses Wbo Vtaretl the Wrath of the "Big Four." Common Carriers Create the Monopoly. May 3 In the senate Mr. Vstl, from the select committee on meat products, made a report and accompanied R with an explanation He said that the committee hod investigated the subject fully and had now reported four measures for the consideration of the senate The first was a concurrent resolution asking the president of the United States to in- augurate diplomatic coi [impendence with the authorities of Great Britain to bring a repeal or modification of the exist- ing quarantine regulations of the United Kingdom A National Inspection The next provided for a national inspec- tion law and requiring that aft live cattle (ball be inspected when Imported, and also cattle intended for exportation ahall be to inspection at the places where killed. Another was intended to prohibit toe monopoly now practiced to the itorage capacity of causing cuttle to foreign countries Another of the reported was intended to prevent the discrimination which now existed on all thefTftilroads belonging to the Trunk Lines Msociation, under which no mileage is given to any of the improved oattle ing live cattle from the west to the The Committee's Report. In thta report the committee says that when the examinations of nltnesses began in St. Louis it was evident that industri- ous efforts were being made to prevent the inquiries of the committee affecting inju- riously the dressed boof Interest of Chi- cago. There was no diversity of opinion among the w itnesses PS to the prices and to the fact that the methods of telling boof oattle bad boon entirely revolutionized in the past ten years. The committee gives histoiy of the combinations by which Chicago has boon able to centralize the oattle business, beginning with the Evener combination, which began In 1873, and con- tlnad five years. This combination between the throo tiunk lines be- tween Chicago and New Penn- sylvania Central, New Central and Kris which by agreement charged 1115 for carload of cattle shipped from Chi- cago to New York, and allowed certain in Chicago knowu as "Evejiuia" of amount on each carload. The result of this was to destroy the St. oattle market and to concentrate the trade at Chicago, where it has since remained. Tn the Grasp of Fonr To 1878 the dressed beef business first as- ied an important character and through antagonism the Evener combination ec-sed to exist In 1887, 75 per cent, in 1888, 66 per cent, of all the re- ceived at Chicago were used in the dr-vod bsof and canning business. This business is practically in the hnnrla of fonr x toblrth ments in Chicago A ruionr Co., Swift Co Nelson Moirls Co. and Har- WhateverdifferenceofopMion nag expressed as to the existence" of a com- bination between these firms not to bid "uainrt each other in the purchase of cattle there was no hesitation on the part of wit- nesses in stating that the control ot the market was absolutely within the giaip of thtse four houses, if they choose to ex- ercise it. Silenced by "Big FOOT." A a result of the influence of these honagg when the committee visited Chicago it found impossible to obtain and full testimony fiutn commission men or em- ployes of packing houses, In private the former stated to mvibeio of the committee that there no doubt combination existed between the "Big Four" not to compete other. When put on the stand they shuffled and prevaricated to such a degree M In many rwies to com In an BO hostile id by such influences the commltUa found their duties singularly and s that congress m the bill recent ly passed by the senate on the subject of trusts has gone as far as its pon er extends State legislation must supplement that b) congiess to punish combines operating within state lines, and active intelligent, honest officials must be found to enforce the laws enacted. Stricken Producers. In conclusion the committee says "It is impossible that the Chicago market should continue to control the cattli interest of the whole country as it does now, or that a few large operators shall retain their hold upon that market. It is only a ques tion of a short time when the problem will be that of supplying our own people with hoof without regard to foreign markets There is no excuse for panic The worst feature of the cattle le is the fact that so many cows and calves are being thrown into the market, the indication being that the producers are panic stricken and anx- ious to realize now without regard to the future There marketed at Chicago during the past jear cattle, of which 35 to 30 per cent, were cows and 4 per cent were calves No combination can keep the price of beef cattle at the present quotations What Should Be Done. "The foreign demand for American cattle is growing, and in a short time our cattle will be admitted into the United Kingdom Until we escape from the ruinous central- ization of the cattle market and its domi- nation by a few men and railroad corpora- tions every effort should be made by deep water improvement on the Gulf of Mexico, diplomatic or to remove quarantine regulations in Great Britain, national in- spection ami the prohibition of monopoly in steamship transportation to enlarge our foreign market" THE BASEBALL WORLD.
