children who are scattered among some 400 small fac tories Tho peculiarity of the strike was that tho manufacturers combined with the men to try and prices from tho export merchants whoso1 business is chiefly with America When tho strike had lusted six weeks and tho operatives were being re duced to great distress representatives of a New York house suddenly offered the manu facturers the advance in prices which they demanded provided they would work until further notice for his firm only This put an ond to tho strike and tho operatives who under tho old ttirill1 could barely earn four ilorins

feet wide and widening fast The last re port was ihat tho water was three feet deep at Fairview aud the operator there could give no further information Ho says ho is alone them and afraid to go to bed for fear the water might catch him The telegraph lines have gone down at the break and all indications are that this is a bad one A great many of our people aro preparing to move their livestock out while others say they aro going to stay and fight tho floods RESIDENTS WARNED OF THEIR DANGER VIOKSBURG March A telegram from President Maxwell received late to night states that the break in the Raleigh levee is now 400 iect wide Maxwell re quested tho residents of Louisiana in Madi son and Tonsas parishes to be notified and warned them of serious results THE LAUGH ON THE BOOMERS Backward the Settler Now Weuds His Weary Way Troops Ordered to Drive Out the Cherokee Gloomy Outlook for the Gattlomen KANSAS CITY March boomers were stampeded into the Cherokee Strip much the same as the cattle were stampeded out of it They misconstrued the passage of tho Oklahoma bill into an act as providing for the immediate opening of tho country to settlement and each company of boomers alarmed lest it not be first on the ground to select the choicest town sites aucl claims rushed pellmell over the border Fear is expressed by cooler heads that this premature and illadvised move ment may bo entirely useless that tho Government may deprive them of their ad vantages and drive the settlers out to wait the formal opening of the country and give allprospective settlers equal shares This view is entertained only by a small minor The great majority are already set tling down on their claims as if assured of permanent residence They believe now that the invasion has been accomplished they will allow them to remain and permit others to take up land whenever rive The majority are settlers and carried on their wagons yesterday enough lumber to dwellings and today the white tents and wagon covers that dotted the prairies iii all directions are being replaced with less picturesque but more substantial board shanties Especially is this the case at the settlement at Ponca only yesterday a small station of a hundred people on the Santa Fe just over the line from Guthrie Oklahoma today a city of 3000 inhabitantssprung up over night The gambling fraternity is here iu full force moiite men wheel of fortune and the walnut shells with the illusive pea all being manipulated in the open street with the usual degree of success Several dis turbances have occurred over these gamb ling devices and many fights took place but nothing serious resulted At Guthrie boarded the train in which the representatives of the Cherokee Strip Cattle company wore returning from the Ft Worth cattlemens convention The iirst intimation they had of the invasion of their leased lauds was gained at Guthrie They couM not believe it but a few minutes later campfiressurrounded by the invad were seen glowingin the darkness and eon firmed the report The cattlemen are greatly disturbed at the in vasion appointed a committeito to notify the Secretary of the Interior of the fact for troops to restore them to their own lands No military force is on the ground now and as far as have been ordered to proceed Captain Caveuaugh commanding the forces at Guthrie and Captain Buibank at Oklahoma City have both officially noti fied Geneal Merritt at Ft Leaven worth commanding the Department of the Missouri of the invasion and the cattlecompany has requested protection from Washington No repliesso far as known have been received to these dispatches and surely orders have been given to move the troops into aded country THE CATTLEMEN ROUTED The cattlemen are completely routed fences cut tho cattle stam pededand the range completely destroyed fcai the neariluturev will be compolled to get their cattle together as well as possible and jhunt other pastures Professor Cpppak thei Indian schools telegraphed last evening for troops to expel the boomersf lands THE trSBOF TROOPS Marcli jutantGen oral Kelton has telegraphed General Mer ritt at Fort Leaven worth to uso troops if necessary and with prudence as hcro voforc to enforce the proclamation issued by tho President relative to the Intruders upon the Cherokee Strip lands This order was sent by direction of the Secretary of War THE LAUGH ON THE BOOMERS KIOWA March laugh is on tho boomers That is tho expression of the sentiment with which the Prosidcnts proclamation was received here Tho boomers who had the good sense to refrain from joining yesterdays invasion are doing the laughing while their more hot headed companions look upon tho matter as anything but laughable A third per haps of the whole number of boomers who crossed the line yesterday have already returned aud arc on their way to this place They come stniggiing back with a good deal of their impetuous energy lost to await as near their prospective claims as possible the formal opening of the strip ARKANSAS CITV March every quarter section of land for eighteen miles south of this cify is at present staked oft and many of thorn occupied by squatters The report that a company of cavnlry would arrive this afternoon onuscd some uneasi ness but as tho hours rolled by without tho troops putting in in appearance confidence was restored aud feelings of security pro vailed This however was shortlived for at 4 oclock the news that the had issued a proclamation ordering all settlers oil the strip was received In a minutes largo numbers of men who had stakedclaims and returned hero for provisions gathered to gether at the street corners and discussed the situation Some counseled a prompt compliance with the Presidents order but others insisted that it was a arood plan to hold their claims until expelled by the troops anri then as soon as tho troops woro oat of sight to return and begin farming operations The advocates of the latter plan are evidently in the majority The old soldier element seem to be more determined to retain their grasp upon their claims Should the soldiers attempt to remove them there will be AN ORGANIZED RESISTANCE And it is believed it will take an army of 3000 men to keep them from settling back on the strip The cattlemen hero did not receive tho news of the Presidents proclamation ordering the invading settlers off tho strip with much interest From Ponca Willow Springs and other settlements hi the outlet comes tho news of burning prairies It seems to liavo been generally agreed upon that the first thing for tho settlers to do was to start a prairie iiro and much of the strip has been burned over These prairie iires served a double purpose they drove most of tho cat tle before thorn and also destroycd the fod der which those remaining might have fed upon Therefore the cattlemen arc natur ally depressed by the gloomy prospects Said Hewins of the Cherokee Strip Cattle company today There are now or rather were before the invasion about head of cattle on the strip I do not believe the most energetic action on the part of the part of the cattlemen and tho Government can save them from irreparable loss If left in the strip the cattle will starve for there is nothing for them to eat there and we can not ship provender to them it would bo a losing investment so there head of cattle good for nothing but hides giuo and bone dust THE PROCLAMATION IGNORED March this afternoon a telegram was received announc ing that the President had ordered the settlers out and that soldiers would bo sent to enforce the order This fact an nounced but it did not stop thft whitetopped wagons that continue to appear and disap pear Many of them contained families who are going prepared to stay and ono of them to whom a reporter talked this evening voiced the sentiments of the majority when he said aregoing If we come out we will be brought out EEBS OF NOTABLE GRGOKS A Mexican Lottery Company PAtJk March Joquiue of Paso Del Norte representing the San Ju arez Lottery of Mexico was in tho city last night on his way to Bismarck and talked quite freely of his companys plans It ap pears Dakota company will be con ducted by tho Mexican company and Joa qnino says tho offer to tho Legislature has been trebled On bis way up to St Paul he had been taking up all the Louisiana tick ets and replacing them with Mexican slips under the as yet unquestioned supposition that a foreign corporation can evade the law The general impression in the South is he says that the Dakota bill will pass A BASEBALL DECISION The Reserve Clause Does Not Bind a Player for Life PHILADELPHIA March Court of Common Pleas this morning rendered a de cision in the suit of the Philadelphia League Club William Hallmau The court refuses to grant the injunction asked for to restrain Hallman from playing with the Philadelphia Players Club Hallman played with the Philadelphia League Club last season and the latter claimed that he was under the reserve rule and that the club held an option on his services for 1S90 In the course of his decision which is a lengthy one Judge Thayer says A care ful readingof paragraph 18 discloses that there is nothing whatever contained in it to bind a player to sign another contract All that is enacted is that the club has the privilege of reserving him for another year but they failed to state upon what terms This failure renders the contract incom plete and ineffective and the fault lies with the Philadelphia base ball club as the contract was drawn up in their In terest If it were true as claimed by their counsel that the contract binds the defendant to sign a similar con tract each year it is then apparent that lie must sign it so long as itsuits his employers Paragraph 17 of the contract states that the club has a right to discharge a player at ten daysnotice for any cause and by this 5n conjunction with their reading of paragraph has sold himself for life to them at a salary of no fur ther hold on them than ten days notice and is at their mercy It Is perfectly apparent that such a contract is so unfair and lacking in mutuality that no court of equity would lend itself to its enforcement He Made It Lively CHICAGO March special from St Paul John Williams an English man owner of one of the largest sheep and cattle ranches in Montana with headquarters at Great Falls came to this city yesterday morning Owing to his desire to make he is S1000 short to day one of the hotel runners at the union depot is at the county jail Williams arrived here Thursday ex pecting to stay
