No Stoppage of Ooerations in Trust Companies' Plants Has Yet Occurred. BUT EVERYTHING CURTAILED. Uteaaive Preparations for the Strike ', Breakers Mob Oatbreaks Team. stera' Sympathetic Strike New Workmen at Plants. ' BT TelegraDh to the Homing Star. Chicago, July 13. To-day bore out predictions of the packing house pro prietors that the big strike would not cause a atoppage of operations. In the great abbatolr district things moved slowly indeed to-day, but they moved. All the packing houses reported that they were slaughtering a little. Every department was said to be doing some work, not much, but aome. and waa expected to increase the activity to morrow. Loading and anionine waa in progress, though heavily curtailed, aa.was the buying or cattle. Some hundreds of new workmen were hired and put to work in the places which had been vacated )n thousands. On the other band the strike spread aomewhat by the action of teamsters in considerable numbers, but ostensi bly acting as individuals, refusins. to handle products touched by newly hired non-union men. This refusal was usually based on the time honored plea that a different course, contracta notwithstanding, would put the team ster in peril of his life. . Extensive installment of sleeping cots and cook ing apparatus tor strike breakera at the various packing houaea waa apparently tne main irritant cauae ror action by tne teamsters, aunougn tnere were.a number or sporadic mob outbreaka on small scale. The packing house proprietors did not appear to share tbe alleged fear of mobs. One of the most interesting state ments made today regarding the atrike aitution came from Miss Mary E. McDowell,of the University of Chi cago settlement near the stock yards. Bhe said that tho great difficulty the union workmen had to expeet was that presented by the "casual work- err," who, she said, were at the beck and call of the, Plant superintendents There are about 5,000 of thla class of laborers around the yards looking for work, according to Miss McDowell, and the regular workmen are in con- atant fear that they will be supplanted Many or tneae workmen, It la said, are now being engaged to take the places of the strikers. Miss McDowell made the remark: "I do not expect serious trouble unless troops are called out." Attacking afresh the allegations that the atrike Is for Increased wages, Pres dent Donnolly, the strike leader, gave out the following statement to-day, ad dressed to the public: "Our organization is taking a stand against a reduction In wages for labor In the plants owned and controlled by the rollowlng companies, which are those affected: "Armour & Co., Swift & Co., Nel son Morria & Co., National Packing Company, Bcnwarz & Sulzeberger, Cudaby. All our organization asks is that 18 18 centa an hour ba the minimum. Io view or the fact that in nearly all of the departments the average working time la forty hours a week, it can be readily seen that our demands are not unreasonable. All or tbe Independent companies are pay log a much nlgber rate than we are asking the trust companies to pay Our organization haa never Interfered with a reduction of working forces ex cept where our members were die crlminatrd against." No Advance at Atlaata. Atlanta, Ga , July 13. Local rep resentatives or the packers whose plants are affected by the butchers' atrike reported to-day that they have on hand and in transit about one week's aupply of meats.

Here is a bit of work thatwill strengthen the muscles involved. The two opponents may be designat ed as No. 1 and No. 2. No. 1 should stand in front of No. 2, with bis back to the latter, taking No. 2's right " arm over his shoulder and seizing No. 2's right wrist in the encircling grasp of his own right hand. -No. 2 should make- the 6ame kind of closp around No. l's left wrist with his own left hand, hold ing the latter's wrist at the sidQ, When this position has been taken, et No. 1 sway 6lowly around to the eft, No. 2 making just enough' re sistance as will not altogether pre vent the twisting of both bodies. After three exercises m this posi tion the two boys should ; change places and then again twist inlthe same fashion to the left. A breath ing spell should now follow. Then the original No. 1 may again take his position in front of hia adversa ry, but with the other's left arm drawn over his shoulder -with the hand encircling clasp and withhia adversary's right hand encircling his right wrist . at the side. The twist should now be to the fright and should be firmly enough" resist ed by No. 2 as almost to', prevent the success of the twist. After ihis Nos. 1 and 2 may againichange-po-sitions, but remember that which ever contestant ia in front of the other should be allowed gradually to obtain the victory, though" not without fair resistance on'the part ofNo. 2. The Puaslea' Tea Party. Seven little. pussy cats. Invited out to tea. Cried: "Mother, let us go. Oh, do, for good we'll surely be. We'll wear our bibs and hold our things as you have shown us how Spoons in right paws, cups In left, and make a pretty bow. . We'll always say, .'Tea, If you please,' and 'Only half of that.' " "Then go, my darling children.'.' said the happy mother cat. The seven little pussy cats went out that night to tea; Their heads were smooth -and glossy"; : their tails were swinging free; They held their things as they had learn ed and tried to be polite. With snowy bibs beneath their chins they were a pretty sight. But, alas, for manners beautiful and coats as soft aa silk I The moment that the little kits were ask ed to take some milk They dropped their spoons, forgot to bow, and, oh, what do you think! They put their noses in the cups, and aU began to drink! Tes; every naughty little kit set up a "me-ouw" for more. Then knocked tho teacups over and scampered through the door. 'Baby World. Feeding tha Birda. A dear old lady, told about in an exchange has such a fanny pretty idea about the birdies. She thinks they are like some chickabiddies and that they need plenty of exercise in winter, so she makes little netted bags, fills them with bits of bread and hangs them in the trees. ' Then, when the birdies peck at them, bob, bob, bob, up go the bags, swinging right up in therair, and Master Robin and Miss Sparrow have a pretty game before they se cure their savory morsel, flying backward and forward. How would you like to, jump for your pudding every day, swinging from the nursery ceiling? But the birds do get a lot of exercise, with out a doubt, by this device. Cahlingn In riedare.

There was never a platform, taken in its entirety, upon which every member of the party for which it was written could unite, but the mass of Democrats of the country will subscribe to all the material planks In this one. It is powerfully written and the only objections urged against it are tbe omission of reference to the money question and its too great length. The omission of a money plank cannot be regard ed as oi consequence iu view ui Judge Parkers telegram on this i subject and his well known poaition in the matter even before that tele I gram was sent.
