Very Complete NEW YorK Aug proposed interview between Vice President Webb of the New York Central and General Master Workman Powderly did not take place yesterday Instead the K of L ex ecutive board held a meeting and formu lated a communication to Webb which was delivered to him by a committee from the executive board consisting of J J Holland and A W Wright with a request that he read it carefully and let the board know what he thought of it as soon us pos sible Webb promised to have his reply ready by 1 p m and the committee took leave of him The K of L board meet ing took place Sunday and Powderly left for BuftiihO Sunday uight Tho Preliminary Correspondence It was a mooted question yesterday whether the correspondence would bo mado public before today but that was settled lnit night when Webb gave in out for publication In the statement issued Webb says that on Saturday last Pow derly wrote him stating that he expected by Monday to have completed his in quiry into the causes of the strike and he would be glad if an interview could be arranged for Monday morning between 10 and 12 oclock He desired to discuss tho question of arbitration of tho differ ences between tho company and its knight employes who were discharged prior to Aug 8 Webb replied agreeing to the interview but suggesting that as the reports of interviews already had be tween himself and Holland Hayes and Donovan on the Hume subject had boon greatly misrepresented it would be for the interest of all concerned if tho matter which Powderly wished to present were put in writing A General Strike Coming Tlie Sun this morning says that the re sult of the deliberations at Buffalo has not been publicly announced but two members of the conference are authority for the statement that a general strike will be ordered today on all the roads in which the Vanderbilts own a controlling interest These lines are the New York Central the West Shore the Lake Shore the Michigan Central the Canada South ern and the Chicago and Northwestern Tho Central Will Fight Vice President Wobb said to a reporter last night after giving out the lettersi I dont know that I can add much to what I have written Wo are in this fight to stay We will not arbitrate We will fight Some of our men have been dis charged for cause and we will neither take them back nor submit to arbitration our reasons for discharging them They wore not discharged because they wero knights That wo have stated again and again We feel that we havethe support oJ nil rightminded men in our course Reiimrks ly Mr Wright Wright and Holland of the executive I board were unaware oE tho nature of Webbs reply to Po wdorlys letter until told lute last evening by the reporters They were unwilling to discuss it and said that nothing could be done in the matter until Powderly returned Wright said lex poet tho chief and the supreme council of the federation at tomorrow morn ing As soon as they arrive they will go into session and will probably confer with tho general executive board of the knights 1 have no doubt that they will take prompt action Could Tic It Up for a Year When asked if there was any possibil ity of the supreme council ordering agen eral strike he said I cannot say what will be done Should they take that Bption I think that we could keep the road tied up for a year or so POWDERLY STATES THE CASE return to the city as soon as my enggaements and if you address me at the St Cloud hotelit will be carefully attended to and placed before on my return Vice President Webbs Beply Webb in his reply says I have to say that no one of the per sons discharged from tho service of this company prior to Aug S and refered to in your communication was discharged be cause he was a member of your order The immediate superiors of each of said persons reported to the superintendent good cause for the discharge and the superintendent investigated each case The management also investigated them and the action of the superintendent was approved The management does not deem it consistent with its continuance and prosperity in business and with the discharge the duties it owes to the peo ple to submit the propriety ot its action in the discharge of any of ita employes to arbitration I have read your communi cation with care and I think the forego ing answers tbe points presented by yon ind defines the position cf this company ALONG THE STRIKE LINES A Gathering That May Mean a Good Deal for the Railways BUFFALO N Y Aug meeting took place here yesterday of railway union magnates that is

North America The proceedings wen secret and the inembers ol the conferenci would say nothing as to its probable re suit Tllff Blockade of Freight The freight yards here are full of can so full that until they are sent away there is no room morej The company has iv new force of men which the yard musters say will work if the strikers will let them Freight agents were in despair because their freight isnot forwardedand altogether the situation could not have been worse Much of the freight in the yards is perishable such as dressed beef and in spite of fresh supplies of ice it is beginning to smell to heaven Powderiy left for New York last night and Sweeney followed him Very little freight was moved in the yards during the day An Ominous Cipher TelegrBm BOSTOX Aug Lee represent ing the

Webb to De clare Ilia Position On Sunday Powderly wrote Webb that he was called from the city nnd ivns there fore obliged to commit to pnpor what he would rather discuss personally He was informed that old and faithful employes had been summarily dismissed because they were members of and active in the Knights ot Labor that up to the time of their discharge they were faithful em ployes with good records Tho frequency of the dismissals left little room for doubt in the minds the men that they were all in danger of discharge nt a moments no tics and aeuce tho strike The whole question hinges upon the discharge of Knights of Labor because they are such If it can be shown thnt these men were working injury to their employers right minded men will any they are treated as the deserve Is It Wi Against tno Kuijjlita If they were discharged for cause the company has everything to gain and noth ing to lose from an investigation If they deserved dismissal from the service none of us will ask for their reinstatement If however they were displaced because of their connection with the Knights of La bor it should be known for if it is to be the policy of the company that no mem bers of the Knights of Labor are to bo em ployed then a statement to that effect will clear up all doubts and there can be no future misunderstandings There will be nothing then to arbitrate so long as you hold that opinion A Community of Interest Powderly then says that the struggle involves the whole question of the rights of men to organize for selfprotection and that it is not the policy of the knights to strike hastily and tbun proceeds The interests of the public reqnire that freight and passenger traffic should work smooth ly the interests of ths company require exactly the same thing and in addition that such traffic prove remunerative the Interests of the working people are the same ns the others but their right to or gauige and select the organization they wish to belong to is fully as dear to them as their pecuniary interests can jrossibly be and that organisation surely has right to question why liny its members were discharged ostrikoof their engineers flremen and trainmen which is likely to occur this week The men want higher wages and more extra time on Che run between Dan villf and Chicago They will have a final audience with President Porter in Chi cago next Friday

New York agents to Washingtoi City for a permit to ship goods in bom to Mexico The department has replied refusing to grant the permit on th ground that it was not disposed to ex tend the bonding
