Kan Fram isco, July 14.—Seventeen
flays have intervened since the gen-
eral strike was inaugurated on t| e
Southern Pacific system. During the
entire period railway traffic has been
at an absolute standstill in Northern
California. At least seven, and prob-
ably nine, human lives have already
been sacrificed in the desperate strug-
gle that is on between the railway
company and the Federal government
on one side and tlie A. II. P. on the
other. The commercial loss has been
enormous. Not only is general traflic
almost at a standstill, but a season's
fruit crop, to the value of hundreds
of thousands of dollars, is perishing
in the orchards.
There is every indication more men
are to be slaughtered in this indus-
trial war; that the fruit growers are
to see more of their crop spoil on
their hands, and that the embargo on
commerce is to be indefinitely con-

Washington, July 12.—The day the
president's signature is aflixed to the
i'tall admission bill will see the
launching of the greatest railroad
enterprise of tho year. A transcon-
tinental scheme has been matured
and is only held back until :
Utah can be dealt with as a
state. With th> quietness charac-
teristic of the Mormou leaders, the
surveys have been made, the es-
timates compiled, the resources of the
country carefully investigated. The
woik is in such nil advanced stage
that the blue prints of the engineers'
maps are now here and ready to use
for construction purposes.
The road surveyed and to be built
extends from Salt lake southerly and
westerly to a Pacific connection in
the Los Angeles country. If the con-
nection cannot be made with the San-
ta Fe in Southern California then this
| Utah road will be built through to the
Rut it is probable that a tratlic nr-
rangement will be made with the
Santa Fo from The Needles through
