Kbw Yoiik. uly 20. John Hoach the
ship builder who constructed tliu dispatch
boat Dolphin and has been doing business
under the name of John Hoach & Sou made
an assignment Saturday lo George W.
(Jillutard of this city and George L. Weed
of Stamford Conn. Tho assignor first
directs that the wanes and salaries of all
employes bi paid and then prefers William
Rowland of New Brunswick for money
loaned work nud labor done and materials
famished to the extent of $rw217.0i for
52000' of which (hat r-ntlemsu ho ds four
promissory notes made by the assignor
bearing date June 10 1885 and payable In
three month". These were discounted by
tho Mechanics' and Traders' Bank ot
Brookl)n which Is alo preferred. P. W.
Collandel & Co. of No. 2 Wall street for
money loaned and advanced are also pre-
ferred to the extent of S'JO.OOO. loaned
about June 37 last 810000 on July 3 and
StO.OOO-ou July 11. Tho total liabilities arc
estimated at 912000000.
Wasiiisoto.v July 20. Tbo failure and
assignment or John Hoach & Son has been
an exciting topic of discussion to day al the
hotels nnd other public places. The im-
pression prevails that Itoach Is not finan
cially embarrassed but lias pursued this
coun-o m uio nope of forcing the Govern-
Erant to Mime comproinlso with him con-
cerning not only tbo Dolphin but the oilier
three cruisers now being constructed by
hlnnt the Chester shipyards. The navy
needs ships and John J loach Is crafty
cnottgn to take all the advantages ot the
situation now that the steal crulM-rs are
neorlng completion. As n gencml rule but
llttlo sympathy Is exprvexed for Mr. Itoach
either In public or prlvato circles. Tho as-
signment places the Government lit the
position of taking chances with all other
creditors should itoach bo sued for the
money paid him on account of the Dolphin.

A BATTLE WITH STRIKERS.
The Police nf Cleveland Kncnunler ths

Cr.r.vr.rAB O. July Id. The antici-
pated collision between tho strikers and
polleo occurred yesterday afternoon al
four o'clock. V meeting of tho striking
Iron vrorkers was icld at Newbcrg yester-
day afternoon and several reporters who
entered were savagely thrown out Aftci
the ( meeting 700 men n-ostly Poles and
Bohemians formei Into line and marched
lo the Plato mill which was in operation.
Tho men In the Plate mill are not affected
by the redaction and wero opposed tc
stopping work In tho first place They
were forced out by tlio foreigners and re-
mained Idlo until yesterday. Tlio mob In-
creased In numbers as It progressed and
when It arrived at the mill It aggregated al
least 1000 men. Tbo strikers were armed
with clubs studded with nails pieces ol
Iron and largo stones. The fifty
policemen on duty Titw -1-r!ird with
maces twenty-two Inches long' and with
self-acting revolvers. They were stationed
at the A'Aiw street entrance to the mill
yards. A ticket fence fifteen feet high en-
closes the grounds. Tho gale was ope
and near It were tlio police. .lUna street
at this iKihit Is sixty feet wide and Is
paved with cinders and slag from the neigh-
boring furnaces. Thirty-four additional
policemen were scattered In tho mill. Al
3:45 the patrolmen wero ordered homo to
rest preparatory to going on duty at night.
They started down A'Anu street nd met
the strikers. They turned and double
quicked It to tha mill. They wero
hooted nnd stoned by Ihe strikers.
Depnty Superintendent MeMahon gave the
order to fall In ami n linn was formed aboul
thirty feet from tho mill gale. The mob
approached and MeMahon asked what was
wanted. One of the leaders replied thai
thev were determined to close tins mill. Tha
ixillce officers argued with them but to no
purpose. The men In the rear ranks began
to throw stones. There was considerable
hard talk a push forward nnd then a rush.
Tho police advanced and the two forces
met. Ths strikers threw stoncA slags and
cinders and flourished their clubs. The
policemen used their nlaces and drove the
strikers back. Inch by Inch. Ybo strikers
fell by the score and reeled away with
blood streaming down their faces. They
tiourod a terrific shower of stones however
Into the police but could not use their clubs
to any advantage. Finally they fell back
very rapidly nnd the polico seeing their op-
portunity charged on a run yelling as they
went. The whack of their maces could be
heard for lung dIUn:cs. Fallen strikers
lined --Ktna street and their wives and
sweethearts bore them away as fast as
possible. The mob broke nud ran bnt the
police kept up an untiring whack until
every striker was driven out ot sight of the
mill. The result of the battle was as fob
lows: Patrolman Manzclman two deep cuts
on the head; Patrolman Caldwell badly
cut on the bead; Patrolman White hit on
tbo brad with a club; Patrolman Ilcese
struck on the wrist and badly Injured;
Patrolman Eckart cut over Die eye; Patrol-
man lies cut on the bead with piece of Imn.
Thirty-five strikers were lying on the ground
when the skirmish was brought to an end
but only seven of them were arrested. The
remainder were carried off tho field by tbclt
friends. The names of Ihoie arrested
were: Thomas Sanders Charles Doolittle
James Mulkeyka John Welskofsks Joseph
Pollock Mike Kobeck and John Lyons.
Mulkcska and Welskofskn will probably
die whllo Kobeck Is bidly Injured. The
fight lasted but five minutes. Gorsuch the

he Instigated tbo attack.

which has been greatly Intensified by the
Insult offered by the Mormons to tho flag.
The end Is not yet and serious trouble may
occur any hour on the slightest pretext
The Gentiles and the United Stales soldicn

have been retalued t those posts. A col-
lision between the Mormons and Gentiles It
looked for on the 24th of this month whlct
Is a great day with the Mormons it belnt

They come In by thousands on that day U

uulto hi the celebration. Should they at-
tempt to repeat auy such performance ai
they carried out on the Fourth of July
there' will probably be bloodshed. The
Mormons lu Salt Lake are all armed. Oc
tho Foutth of July thev gave evidences o
this by freely nourishing revolvers In tht

lug them. Backed by tho many thousand)
who will be at Salt Lake on the annlvcr

Bt Loom Mo. July 17. TheJIspflte
between tbt holders ot lands In tho neu-

strip has assumed a now phase and un-
less the nentrat strip men withdraw thoHr
opposition to the nse of tho trail adopted
by tho Dallas convention hold In Texas
several months ago Ihs Toxins threaten
to make a personal matter of the fight
Mr. A. L. Mercer editor ot the North-
vetlern I 'ce block Journal at Cbcyonne
Wyoming who passed through the city
en route for Washington speaking on
the subject at the St. James Hotel aaldt
"the niatiT or way
throngh the Cbcrokco strip Is not the
question at present. The trail through
It leads directly Into Kansas through
Which Slate Texas cattlo can not pass
owing to tho laws rasscd by the last
Kansas Legislature nud tbo trail Is prac-
tically worthless. What the Texas men
want Is the trail throngh tbo neutral
strip which Is pnblto domain. That
leads Into Colorado Once In that State
they can get north or cast as they de-
sire Tho Bccrelnryof Slate Attorney-
General and Commissioner of Agricul-

The following telegram was sent from

-Tho trails sought to be trareled by tho

practicable one to Colors lo Great In-

"President Texas Live Stock Association.''
On the 11th Inst. Messrs. W. A. Towers
and tTbumas A. Lee signing tbcmselrei
as representatives ot Colorado Kansas
Northern Texas Missouri and Indian
Territory Cattle Orowcrs and Live Stock
Association telegraphed their version ol
the dlfficnlty to Secretary Lamar to the
effect that the right of trail throngh the
neutral strip be denied the Texans.
Subsequent Investigation develops that
Towers and Leo are interested la the cat-
tle business In the neutral strip terri-
tory and whllo tbey may represent tht
Kansas and Indian Territory associa-
tions since the stand they take In tbeli
telegram Is Identical wlta tho Interests
of those Slates tbey do not represent
nor vclco tbe sentiments of Colorado
icxasanu aiissonrt associations this
discovery Is the new phase referred to
above and will doubtless be urged agalat
mem oy tne icxans as ground lor disre-
garding tbelr statements. It Is claimed
that tbe "Northern Texas Live Stock As-
sociation" docs not exist and that should
the men belong to the
COLORADO AXD MISSOURI ASSOCIATIONS
tbey wcro not antborlzed by them to
make any statement to the Secretary as
corulm from tbem. At a meeting of the
Colorado Association At Denver a reso-
lution was unanimously adopted expres-
sive ot tbo sense ot that Association that
owners ot healthy cattle had tho right to
dn- them over public domain. This
" - j l?n Is In direct opposition to the
V . u Uken by Towers and Leo In ob-
structtng drive through tno nemtral
strip. Al v f tho Texas cattle associa-
tions bad leprcscntatives at tbe Dallas
meeting and concurred In tho adoption of
what Is known as tbo Dallas trail which
traverses tho neutral strip and leads Into
Colorado and It ls safe to sssmnc that
Towers and Leo have been selected
by them io resctud their action
In tho matter and nudo all ot their
work at that meeting. Messrs. Hunter
and P.ransanda large majority ot the
cattlemen of this Slate are in sympathy
with the action of tho Dallas Convention
and no one baa been authorlz.-d by Ibom
to represent to tbe contrarr. Tbe law
prohibiting the passage ot Texas cattle
with certain restrictions through Kan-
sas It Is alleged was passed through tbe
lnllucnce of Kansas ami Cherokee anl
neutral strip cattlemen for the purpose
ot Injuring the cattle Interests of TeXis
and benefiting tbelr own. Tbo repre-
sentations contslncd In ths Towers-Lee
telegram that tbe Texas cattle are In-
ftclcd are denied In a letter to Commis
sioner Uolman from lino. Joseph M.
Wt son Treasurer of the t ulorado Cattlo
Growers' Association aud Director ot
the German National Bauk ot Denver
who says that Towers and Lea are seek-
ing to stop eattlo from Crockett Ed-
wards Nolan and Milcbell Counties In
Texas which are perfectly healthy. John
N. Lytilc a member ot the Kxccutlvo
Committee ut tbu National Cattle and
Horse Growers' Association has tele-
graphed saying that tho cattle arc healthy
and .isklng that an Inspector be sent to
Texas to establish tbo fact. Dr. Georcu
J. Fuville veterinarian of tbe Colorado
State Sanitary Board examined tbe cattle
and Issued bills ol health for them.
Towers aud Leo slate that there Is no
objection to Texas cattle being driven
over the old trail vvlilcu leads Into Kan-
sas. Kansas being Impassable however
the old trail 1 therefore useless to the
Texans. Tbelr expressed desire to leave
tho question ol the right ot passage over
the ueutnal atrip to tho courts for deci-
sion Is objected to by the Texans for tho
reason that the time which won d bs oc-
cupied lu Its adjudication would Inter-
fere seriously wlib their business and
prevent tbe drtrlus of thalr cattlo until
too lata to reach Northern ranges this
season. The Texans claim to havo
suffered a loss already by depreciation In
values of tbelr stock to the extent of
8(0000000 and a speedy solution ot tho
difficulty Is asked for. The land occu-
pied by tbe Neutral Strip Association Is
Eubllc domalu aud they say that no one
aa a right to obstruct Its passage.
The above facts havo been placed be-
fore Commissioner Colmsn and Secre
tary Lamar and R ls thought they will
aid materially m Drinking anout a settle
raent aud have considerable weight in
favor ot the Texans.
