York Stute Arbitrators Correspond with Arthur Says the Kngincera AVI 11 Saw Wood TEltliE HAUTE Ind Aug will not be the fault of Frank P Sargent or due to any dcflc incy in his powers of per suasion if every employe of the York Central railroad who Ls a member of any of the various orders identified with the Federation of Railroad Employes does not find himself enrolled under the banner of the strikers by sundown today The grand master of the Brotherhood of Loco motive Firemen reached here shortly after U oclock yesterday afternoon Ilia mind Is fully made up that the of the situation demand heroic action He first had a conference with Grand Secretory Debs mid later with Grand Chief How ard of the conductors brotherhood and Grand Master Wilkinson of the train men A Talk with Sargent Mr Sargenb was interviewed and said that Powderly was right in the stand he had taken He mud that the real animus of Vice President Webbs action was a war on organized labor that if he beat the knights he would then proceed against the engineers firemen etc who are mem bers of labor unions Sargent said that Webb bluntly told him that if a similar condition of affairs were to obtain relative to the firemen and he Sargent wanted to investigate the cause of the discharge of a man he would not be permitted to do it the company Webb said was fully able to attend to such matters without outside interference J Will Indorse Towderly Continuing Surgeat said I have never hud ft railway official to say such a thing aa that to men They have always been willing to have cases of discharge investi gated I shall heartily indorse everything he haa done when the question comes up tomorrow as to what action we shall take regarding the request of Powderly for that is the form into which the matter will resolve itsalt It is not now a question as to how much beef is buried on the New York Cen tral but whether organized labor shall be crushed and buried to boot Probable JCxtent of the Strike Sargent when asked the question point blank as to whether in the event of a strike being ordered it would be confined to those portions of the New York Central DOW affected or extend to the connections west of Buffalo and tho Yunderbilt lines in general said that this would be on11 of the specific questions for the supreme council to decide If they ecided to call out the men they would also designate the lines upon which the order shouM go into effect He did not however consider it prudent at this time to discuss the scope of their probable action Mr Sargent was positive upon one ttriig and that was that the council would bo unanimous in whatever action it took and as ho is in for a strike it would seem that strike it is though the conclu sion of the councils deliberations may not be reached before Monday AT THE NEW YORK END Another JropoHition for Arbitration He jiCteil NEW Yimiv Aug Donovan yestLrday sent the following let ter to Vice President Webb and one of similar import to T V Pow derly It having como to the knowl edge of the state boaril of mediation and arbitration that another stiikpis seriously threatened on the1 lines of yo ir company I am instructed by the board to again communicate with you and invite a joint conference m UILoincjs of your company between you and representatives of your employes with a view of devising some means either by arbitration or such other method as may be mutually agreed upon whereby the threatened strike may bo averted and abrupt interruption of travel nnd transportation of freight be pre vented i Webbs Uncompromising Reply To the above Mr Webb sent a reply in which he first says that a large number of men have quit the employ of his com pany have not asked for reemployment but are continuing with the leaders of labor organizations and seeking to pre vent by threats intimidation and in other ways the conferrance in lawful employ ment of the persons who did not leave the companys service and others who have been employed in the place of those who did This he says constitutes the pres ent strike The further strike may or may not take place and he believes it will not Clnlma a Full Complement of Hiimls Mr Webb then proceeds The operat ing force of this company is full the pas senger service of the company is regular ly performed and there is no obstruction to its freight service except lawless inter ference and the apprehension thereof I not aware of any difference or griev ance existing between the company and its employes and I must assume that the conference suggested by you as between the officials of the company and therepre sentativeii of our employes is a confer ence suggested between the officers of tne company and the officials of the Knights of Labor Xu Not Represent Employes These officials represent not our em ployes but persons who have left our serv ice and have not asked to be reemployed but who through those same officials of the Knights of Lnbor have asked that the discharge by he company of certain per sons prior to the Sth of August be submit ted to their investigation and to arbitra tion by some tribunal to be selected in some way a request which I have fejt it my doty to decline And he then declines the proposal ot the slate board He depre cates interruption of traffic bat promises that if the stjue will sea that the road and its employes is kept free from lawless in terference there will be no interruption Mr Powderlys reply is a simple state ment that the knights are not only will Ing but anxious for arbitration and hold themselves in readiness to submit the question at any time Webb Makes an Mr Webb said last night that no man has been discharged because he was a K of L or a member of any other laoor or ganization He said some sixty men were dismissed for drunkenness incapacity breech of duty insubordination and for lack of sufficient work to employ them and he had been asked by Mr Powderlj to arbitrate in order to avoid a threatened strike He said he would decline to sub mit the Question of dismissal of to arbitration as long as Be helu His posf tion on the road CHIEF ARTHUR TALKS Mo Declines to Reply to the Open Letter but Speaks Significantly CLEVELAND O Ang Arthur of the engineers brotherhood was asked yesterday what he was going to do about Powderlys letter to him He said he had no official evidence of any letter having been written to him and would take no notice of it If Powderly wanted hia views let him write officially to him and they would be forthcoming He had no reason to doubt that Powderly wrote the letter published but that was not the way to address him if Powderly wanted an answer under Arthurs own signature Minding Their Own BuBinetM Continuing Mr Arthur said You may I know no way of putting it we are minding our own business and will continue to do so I notice thatPowderly complains that en gineers are acting as flremen and taking the places of strikers No word or notice of this has been received by me In fact our position in the whole trouble is thor oughly independent I know nothing more of the strike than has been published in the papers I was not consulted or ad vised of the affair in the beginning and therefore have no interest in it only so far as I am in sympathy with all classes who are trying to better their condition The engineers will strike only on their own account The order will taka no of ficial cognizance of the Central trouble unless complaints come from our owp members Features of the Situation NEW YORK Aug latest deirel opmeut of the strike is a massmeeting to express sentiment against the exist ence of Pinkertons private army aud in behalf of the right of citizens to organ ize to take place next Tuesday evening The meeting was

Xiirdys police surprised a gang of toughs armedwith rocks and couplin pins at the junction at dusk last night They were waiting tc bombard a traia and the police didnt catch them Sheriff Tappan denies Powderl3s charge that he gave deputy sheriffs commissions to ignorant men The Delaware and Hudson managers have been warned not to receive Central freight There are plenty of nonunion men at Buffalo but they accomplish little because of the work of strikers or toughs who are carrying on the usual style of warfare in such cases It is stated that Vermont railway em ployes are rapidly bing enrolled in laboi xitiions and getting ready to give the managers trotible Mau3 of the nouuuion men brought to Buffalo claim that they did not know they were to take stdkeri places Getting Ready for Trouble

Lemon money he put in the Gypsum mine Making It Comprehensive Cooper wanted to know how much stock Raum owned in the Gypsum mine how much he paid for it and whether he had any stock in a smokeless powder company There were protests and objections to the last question Then Cooper said that he was endeavoring to test Raums judgment by asking these questions He was trying to show that at the time when Lemon went on Raums notes Raum was insol vent He expected to prove further that Lemon knew that this WHS so Cooper added somewhat dramatically that turpi tude was in every element of the case turpitude bad been shown by Raum when he allovred Lemon to go on his notes Kaum Dennett the Question at Igaue Raum here roao and said he had not been guilty of any misconduct in office Tbe men who

to bring asingle witness to prove the charge Not a single man woman or boy of the 1500 employes of the pension offico would testify in support of the charge Under the guiso of friendship Cooper had stated he was seeking to break down his Raums character The issue in this case was Did I corruptly per form any act while in office He was prepared to meet that charge Ho did not propose to have his

Raurn H the article was prepared in bis office or written by him Raum answered in the nigativte to both questions He thought he could name the author but declined to do so Cuoper said that he expected to prove that the article had been supervised or author ized by Raum Gen H V Boyutou Washington corre spondent of the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette testified that the article pub lished Gn June yth had been sent out by him He bad asked Raum for a state ment but the article published had been handed him by another correspon dent wbo said it was something that Raum would probably like to have pub lished One ou the Indiana Statesman Raum described in detail the operation of business in pension cases When he had finished Cooper said he objected to taking cases from the pending and placing them on the completed tiles on certificates of attorneys vhat they were completed You did not always object said Ranm Cooper asked for an explanation Why was the answer you have filed 3000 cases for one firm of attorneys There was much laughter at this Ranm read a statement giving the num ber of claims placed on the completed flies to Aug 16 last The total number was and of these Lemon filed the great est number by an individual 811ft No Favors Given to Lemon Bailey chief of the law division of the pension office said Lemon had never received any preference in the of fice nor had Ranm ever given any orders to that effect Bailey said these things could not happen without his knowledge Raum then submitted a list of the stock certificates of the refrigerator company showing that he was the only man in the pension office connected therewith He would let Cooper examine the books only in case the committee agreed to the pro position The committee concluded that Cooper should be satisfied with a look at the list of stockholders but he declined this he was allowed to examlne the booksalso The committee then adjourned to Sept 1 CARLISLEON CUTLERY He Presents Some Papers as to Firicea At

Platt said that the case was not made oat until it was shown that the same goods were sold at a higher price at home Some MorcBills Produced Carlisle then produced bills of North ampton Cutlery company quoHid their figures and asserted that they proved con clusively that the prices to the American dealers were from 24 to 28 per cent higher than to the foreign dealers He notified Allison therefore thatthe point had been reached which required that gentleman to carry out the promise he had made some weeks ago That senator had said substantially that if tne evidence could be produced in any case to show that the American manufacturer was selling his goods abroad at less prices than at home the duties might very well be reduced Contention on the Other Side Platt said the case was not made out yet as it wasincredible that the Ameri can manufacturers could sell their goods abroad so much cheatMr than at homa ings iu Congress WASHINGTON CITV Aug whole of yesterday in the senate was

interesting and practical papers read before the American Association for the Advancement of Science was that by State Geologist Orton of Ohio on Mu nicipal and the Natural Gas Supply He said that there is not the faintest doubt that the natural gas sup ply in the Indiana Hiid Ohio fields is not only exhaustible but is rapidly and sure ly being exhausted He said he was yet to find a man conversant with existing facts who does not entirely agree with bum The gas is stored in the rocks he saya where it has been for untold age Lt is not now being generated and every foot that escapes to the surface leaves the quantity remaining for future use just so much smaller The Statement Butty Proven The truth of this Dr Orton says is in controvertibly proven by facts to be easily gathered The pressure of gas in the in the Ohio and Indiana fields is steadily diminishing the decrease already having amounted to 30 or 40 per cent In view of this Dr Orton urges the imperative necessity for cities and states to take action restricting the lavish and wasteful use of gas Even the strictest regulations he says cannot prevent the exhaustion of the supply of gas in a few years but they may put off that exhaustion some time Fertllliers for Wheat Biological Fa ctors in the Nutrition of Farm crops was the title of a paper by Professor Manly Miles of Lansing Mich The writer related a number
