conclave at the Terre Haute house UK all day long that place was throned Ijy reporters and other with a mini to find out what was going on It took Chief nearly all day to pre sent the of ficts etc ho

not announce any plnn Saturday and yes terday the only one ac work was Debs who locked himself LIJI for eiyht hours writing a report it LH presumed which will be considered today At S p m yes terdiiy tbe committee was in session con sidering the report the Keilurattoii Cnnnot Do There is probably some mistake in the public mind as to what the Federation can do it being taken for granteci that it just conclude to order out every man connected with it grievance or no grievance Thin is not so Neither the bodies federated cim be ordered to strike unless one of them has a grievance which the employers refuse to redress That is the constitution and the strike cannot be ordered for the whole Federation except by a unanimous vote of the council The question is consequently complicated But If the council lituls that it cannot order out its men without overritliny the consti tution it will without question come to the rtlief of the knights in some other way hat has yet to be determined Wlmt It On Do There are three courses open to the FtMkrution it can call out its members ami thereby increase tho numerical pro portions of the attacking ing there is a grievance it can present u hill of grievances of its own to President Webb and his associates and thus harass the enemy on its flank or ic cnn make the cause of the knights Its own by affording them material assist ance and sustenance ns long as the strug gle continues What it will do is not to be told at this writing A telegram sent to Pmvdcrly by Sargent Saturday at 10 p m was noncommittal to a degree It slating that no decision had been arrived that the inter ests of the knights will receive duo con sideration A SemlOmdiil Announcement It was announced last night that the result of the meeting the supreme council would be made public by noon today POWDERLY ON WEBB AGAIN The Muster Workman Ioea Not Kellovo tho Vico rrwtiiUiits Lutest NEW YOUK Ana 25 Iowclerly in a re pjy to Vice President Webbs atatemenfc in which he says that the causes which led to the discharge of tho New York Cen tral employes wera drunkenness incapac ity insubordination etc begins by prac tically calling He then pro Cecils to say that Webb relies upon the statements of subordinates iu regard to the man Onu of tho subordinates is fore man John Briggs Powilerly submits the allidavifcs of severzvl men whoallege that they were required to pay a month to their boss in order to keep their positions under Brijrgs also that the use of liquor was condoned if the liquor wrvs shared with the boss Something More to the Point Powderly says that by refusing an in vestigation Webb has made it impossible to expose such abuses which are going on under his nose Powrlerly then quotes some utterances of Depew in favor of ar bitration Ho also asserts that reliable meu have informed him that they wero asked by their foreman if they were Knights of Labor and on replying iu the affirmative they were ischarged no other cause being assigned An investigation would have shown whether Webbs in formants or Powclerlys informants told the truth Kpforpncr to Chief Arthur Powderly was asked what he thought of Chief Arthurs utteranco He said he had wired Arthur when he went to Cleveland to meet him but never saw anything of the chief nor could he find him anywhere Referring to Arthurs statement that he had not of engineers taking tho places of striking firemen Powderly said Of course he would not hear of such a thing but if the Knights of Labor did anything of the kiml I would very quickly honr of it Why his meu would just as soon go to Mr Depew with their com plaints as they would to him All I want Mr Arthur to do is to declare which side he is on Its an easy matter for Mr Ar thur to settle the doubting it he feels in clined to do so Powderly Goes to Albany General Master Workman PowderlySec retary Hayes and John Devlin of the ex ecutive board of the Knights of Labor loft last night for Albany The board will be joined at Albany by J J Holland and its future movements will be determined It has been decided however to establish headquarters here to conduct the opera tions of the strike Devlin and Hayes said that nothing definite had been heard from Terre Haute TALKING OF MORE TIEUPS All Railways That Handle Central freight To Be Struck Against ALBVST N Y Aug which li likely to spread the strike on the Cen tral to other roads is the handling by the latter of Central freight Central j freight is freight that has boon car ried over the New York Central in any direction as far as the latter line can take It and then turned over to a connecting i line to carry the remainder of the way to its destlnntion the connecting Hue of course being paid for its service not by the Central but by tbe shipper although the Central may act as the shippers agent i 11 the matter On account of handling i Central freight the Delaware and Hud SOD has another strike on its hands like that of last week But now the railway afllcials say they will serve shippers by handling Central freight or know why they can not In consequence of this question of j untiling Central freight the situation tare last nieht was more than tny stags since the strike began Despite the fact that no action has been taken at Terre Haute it is altogether probable that by noon today every railroad run ning into this city will be tied up These roads are the New1 York Central Wrist shore Delaware and Hudson Boston and Albany and Fitchbarg roads The Cen tral and Delaware and Hudson are now partially crippled The unions threaten to shut down every road that handles freight that comes here over the Central tracks What the Ballwsy Officials Say The rail way officials say that they will consider every man discharged who does not report for work today and proceed to nonunion men The D and H did little business yesterday It is the di rect connection for the north for the Cen tral the West Shore and Pennsylvania railroads The strike if general will cut off the supplies of such summer resorts as Saratoga Luzerne Lake George and oth ers all of which depend on the large cities for them THE STRIKE AT CHICAGO BOBEAL ZEPHYES Stones und CouplingPing Make the Tie Up Developments CmCAGO Aug 25 7000 and 8000 men were temporarily thrown out of employment in the stock yards on ac count of the strike of the engineers and firemen of the Railway Switching associ tion but if the strike continues at least 15000 men will be in idleness One firm tried to move refrigerator cars by hand so as to enable them to get out a big con signment of beef but the their men touched the cars they were set upon by a gang of switchmen who drove them into the packing house before a fusillade of couplingpins and stones If the rocn do not return ti work volun tarily at once on the terms that have been offered them by the railroad superintend ents the latter will declare the switching association dissolved The men through their representatives yesterday said that they would not resume work until the engineers were paid SO and I he fire men 20 cents an hour The switching etc at the yards is done by an association which hires engines from the roads and otherwise la independent of them ItsdRsso lution meians that the engines will be sent back to the roads to which they belong and the work will be done if done at all by the railways Aye Theres the Rub But will it be done 81 ally That is the question The association managers say yes the strikers say no The latter de clare that such action will make a bigger tanglethan ever and the packers seem to agree with them arid it looks at this time us though if the strike is not settled before dark tonight the entire packing industry will probably have to suspend operations throwing over 12000 men into temporary idleness The strikers so far have been generally successful in prevent ing packing house employes from unload ing and moving curs Some Alii and Comfort for Webb AMSTERDAM N Aug largs number of manufacturers of tnis city have signed u letter which has been sent to Vice President Webb in which he is congratulated on the manly stand he has taken against the strikers The manu facturers say they

late Senator Beck As is always the case when he speaks on a sub ject the oration of Senator Ingalls was one of the most notable He said in part To exist is exultation to live forever is our aublimest

universes is no more than the flash of fireflies above the meadows of summer a colossal power by which these stupendous orbs launched in he abyss like bubbles blown by a child in the morning sun and whose sense of justice and reason cannot be less potential than those immutable statutes that ffire the law of being to the creatures he hns made and which compel them to declare that if the only object of creation Is destruction if infinity is the theater of an uninterrupted series of irreparable ca lamities if the final cause of life is death then nime Is an inexplicable tragedy and

are worse than the Minne apolis census returns and are utterly use less ns a basis for outsiders to mske cal culations from It is fortunate that the figures upon which predictions as to j which club

creator of tthe union and who is looked up to by them as almost superhuman delivered a spirited harangue He referred to the proposed union of ship owners and said he had heard that they were considering the ad visability of establishing a Pinkerton force similar to tiiat which is by private corporations in America He excitedly declared that if this were at tempted the dockers would raise the hair of tbose hired assassins in less than twentyfour hours We will compete with these Janizaries revolver to revol ver cried the orator and his words were greeted with tumultuous applause Unnecessarily Excited Burns remarks were probably intended chiefly to rouse the feelings of the men and stimulate their enthusiasm for he knows as well as any one that Che Pinkeir ton system would not be tolerated in Eng land The chief of the London police would be obliged to retire in disgrace if he should admit his impoiency to protect property by allowing the employment of private armed police by business concerns Nor would any corporation think of going to the expense of hiring such a force for nothing is more certain under English law than that every penny of damage done to property by strikers or rioters can be recovered promptly by the injured party from the pubic funds Nor does the necessity of employing private police exist here to tbe extent that it seems to in the United States for there is not the same hesitancy here iu calling upon the military to aid the civil authorities Have it Corner on Labor Matters are different in England in an other way The trades unions practically include all the workingmen of the king dom When therefore as in Wales a British railway 13 stopped by a strikeit need not expect to replace the men and go on with its business It is a question only of whether the railway or the strikers caa hold out the longest Strikes have al ready driven much shipping teom the port of London so much so that ship owners as well as dock owners are alarmed nnd are looking about them as to what can be done for relief HOOSIEEDODIG8 Romantic Wedding of a New Albany Maiden Anybody Seen This Man MARLBORO Mass Aug B Morse aged 21 a native of this town
