Oh, it is perfectly horrible! The company is in readiness to move to the cali of necessity in the great strike. At 3.45 this morning the following order was received: Lansing, July 3, 1894: Capt. John C. Fischer, Commanding Co. A, M. N. G.:- Assemble Co. A at armory, in fatigue uniform. Get ammunition ready. Have everyman there. Await orders. W. W. Cook, Ass't Adjutant General, M. N. G. The boys were tumbled out of their beds and hurried out their military clothes as soort as possible, and 54 out of a possible 62 breakfasted at the Germania. The strike and threatened trouble and possible obstruction of mails by strikers, is the cause or the order to the company.
