CASH HOT TALK THE ESSENTIAL The Workman Makes an Appeal to the ulid to Organized Labor for the hinews of HauU Webb and the riiikertona Over Hot Straight Jutjntion to Chief Asked to Stand Up Uo Counted on One or the Other NEW YOKK Aug statement yesterday that General Master Workman Powderly had issued an appeal to the Knights of Labor calling on them to strike against the New York Central was Bomewhttt premature tis was the sensa tional report that the firemen at Buffalo had iuit work The firemen say they will not quit until they get the word from their officers but it is evident that they expect thit word in the near future and will obey it with alacrity Powdeflys ap peal waw Isrue 1 last night asd is to the people anil gives the situation us seen by the Knights of Labor and their leaders at great length ApiHl of the Chief K of Mr Powderlys appeal is as follows To THE PEOPLE For some timti the management of the New York Central and Hudson River railroad have been dis charging employes who have been active In labor affairs It happens that all those who have been dismissed are members of the order of KnightB of Labor and have at one time or another been officers ol the order or have served on committees which waited on the officials with a view to pre nenting grievances Theso discharges be came so frequent and were so clearly evi dence of a settled purpose on the psirt of the company to disrupt and destroy the organization of the Knights of Labor on the Central system that the executive board of District assembly No 340 in which the Knights of Labor upon the sys tem are enrolled found it necessary to call a special meeting in Now York to con sider the situation llallnndH Interview Witli Webb In the meantime the executive board having been apprised of the condition of affairs sent one of his members Mr J J Holland to Nrew York with instructfons to use all possible efforts to bring about an amicable adjustment the difficulty On his arrival iu New York after a con ference with tho representatives of the district assembly in tho course of which be obtained a full knowledge of the trouble from the standpoint of the he waited upon Mr H Walter Webb third vice pre sident and acting matiager of the company to adjtftt the difficulties Mr Webb denied was any trouble existing between tho company and its employes and frequently declared that he would not discuss the matter with any one not an employe of tho company and closed the interview No Alternative but to Strike Finding all eftortst to effect a peaceable settlement of their grievances impossible and being convinced that it was only u question of time when they would onsi and all bu discharged unluns they forfeited their manhood and abandoned their privi leges as citizens of a free country by renouncing their right to join their fel lows iu an organization calculated topro tect their just rights without intrenching upon those of others the distiict execu tive board had no alternative but to order a strike which they did KfTortB of 1owdUily and Devlin Mr Powderly then goes ou to give the details of the interview with Toucey and Webb on Wednesday substantially as re ported in these disparchus with the addi tion that Devlin asked if he was to un derstand that Mr Webb assumed thnt the public and the employes had no rights that he was bound to consider and if he looked upon the mutter simply as though the railroad was his own private property If so there was no need of saying any thing further Mr Webb hesitated and then took refuge in silence The public may have formed erroneous impressions of tho position of the Knights of Labor iu the controversy We do not pretend to dictate to tho company that it shall not discharge employes but iu all fairness the discharged man should bo told why he is dismissed Blacklisted for promoting Legislation During the session OL the state legisla ture tho Knights of Labor of Nuw York were active in tho passage of the weekly pay bill The committee of the knights representing the etriployes of the New York Central railroad were met at Albany by the attorneys of tbo railway and brow beaten questioned anil terrorized Somo of the members of that committee who were at the time employed by the New York Central were discharged without any given cause There is not a doubt in iho minds of tho committee that men were singled out for endeavoring to secure the passage of tho above mentioned law Will Stniul by the Men After thoroughly investigating the causes which led to the strike and after making every effort in their power to In duce the company to arbitrate or submit to an investigation by impartial men of tho question at Issue the generalexecutive board have by an unanimous vote determined to stand by the men who whether their strike svas op portune or uo had no alternative consis tent with their manhood I have no doubt that it is the determination of the management to destroy tho organization of labor along the line of the New York Central unless that organization sub serviently bends its knee to the will of the A Question of Veracity During the controversy Messrs Toucey and Webb stated and repeated the state ment that the men were not discharged becausa they were Knights of Labor aud they expect the public to believe them simply because they siay so Both of these gentlemen deny certain things in relation to their conversation with me which both Mr Devlin and myiwlf are prepared to tnoke affidavit to I may therefore be ex cused if I am not prepared to accept as true beyond qnestion any denial by them of statements made by men whose words should be of equal value with theirs Wants Monoy Hat Moral Support Mr Powderly then with much elabora tion down to the pith of his document He says the strikers do not need moral support but money and this he asks not only of organized labor but also of the general public whosij battle he claims the knight are righting He charges that real anrimus of the action of the Xew YorX Central is the work tiie krcightg are doing SJ the crusade for control of corporations ind syndicates and government by the people He then makes a vigorous attack n tb3 Pinkertons whom he calls a hire ling mob employed to provoke men to an jer and shoot down those who ask for their riorhts A FromiiM of Good Ord er He promises that the knights will com mit no unlawful act from the beginning the end of the strike and then returns a the attack on Robert Pinkerton and his nen and says that a man named Potte Ihek who could scarcely speak English was hired as a watchman by the ind then given a deputy sheriffs eornmier lion a club and a pistol and told to use He wants to know why these blauk commissions are placed in the hands 5f such men and says he wrote to the heriff of Kenssetaer county to know if he would swear in 200 deputies to protect the and was refused Jumping on H Waiter Webb The document then proceeds H Wal er Webb never did one stroke of work to secure the wealth he now abuses It jame to him by inheritance and he does act fully appreciate it and regards it as something to be used for himself alone The elder Vanderbilt was a workman and tnew something about the feelings of the man who toils It was during his days that this record of the New York Central or generous treatment of workmen was uade and riot under the present manage ment He concludes by reiterating the appeal for funds and an appeal to the men atwork to come out Contributions o the fund are to be sent to John W Hayes 314 North Broad street Philadel phia A BLAST AT CHIEF ARTHUR Tho Stouter Workman Calls on Him to State niD Position Later in tho day the master workman turned his battery on Chief Arthur the engineers brotherhood He colls at tention to the fact that there is a strike on the Central on a principle which you can not afford to ignore and says that in many cases the places of the firemen are taken by the engineers who get off their cabs to pick up the shovels dropped bythe firemen He does not ask Arthur to offi cially sanction the strike but to see that his men do not do the work of the strikers as the man who ttkes the place of another in this fight is untrue to the cause of or ganized labor Choose Whom le Will Serve Mr Powderly says The Knights of Labor desire to know where you stand on this question for you are authorized to voice the sentiments of your order The members of the various brotherhoods of railway employes are desirous of know ing where you stand for on your answer and we desire a public one depends tho future of your association We desire to know where to place it Shsil it be classed among the organizations of in dustry or among the allies of capital We want to know from your own lips where to assign the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers in the roster of organizations Your voice must be heard either on the side of the railway or the men Which will it be An Alleged Plnfcerton Plot President Cleary of the K of L told a mass meeting Wednesday that he had been approached by a well dressed stranger who gave him signs and passwords now not used in the knights and then proposed to him to go intoa scheme to blow up Central bridges with dynamite Cleary charged that the man was a Pinkerton sent among themto get them into plots of that kind and had resolutions passed re iterating the charge and declaring that the men would win this fight by legiti mate means Doesnt Order a Strike Mr Powderly said last evening I never ordered a strike in my life In this case we have come to the aid of the men who are out Unless we say the strike is off there is nothing for us to do We have offered to arbitrate to investi gate and to question the men and thus secure evidence but the company will accept nothing can we do except fight Powiloriy Watched by NEW YOKE Aug Powderly was much exercised over the way in which he had been shadowed and hounded by detectives for the purpose supposedly of bringing a criminal charge before the grand jury Mr Webb said It is untrue that have been hounding Mr Powderly and his associates with de tectives for the purpose of making crim inal charges against them before the grand jury but added that he would do all in his power to find out what was going on in the enemys ranks Situation nt Albany ALBA5TT Aug was an air of jubilation about the headquarters of the strikers yesterday They were figuring up the loss to tho Central so far and esti mated it at They claimed that the men employed to take the strikers places were frequently deserting and leaving the company in the lurch The railway officials said that they were moving freight and would move more as each day came along The crossings are still guarded by police and Pinkerton men Not for Trouble Before CHICAGO Aug is a report afloat that the Lake Shore and other east bound lines in the Vanderbilt system were refusing perishable fruit yesterday con signed via the New York Central This however was denied by

Chicago CHICAGO Aug A Hall of the switchmens association left today for Terre Haute Before leaving he said he hoped that there would not be a gen eral strike but if one was ordered it would be a big

was intensified when Cooper rose from his seat ana walked out of the room evidently very angry The exami nation of Raum was then continued with ouc Cooper With Keference to Lemon On crossexamination
