and the pith of it is given be low Jowtlcrlys Course Approved It begins with a history of the striko up to date giving the reasons alleged by the knights for striking the attempts of Pow derly to settle the matter with Webb nnd all the facts connected with the applica tion of Powderly to tha federation and in this part of the document the action of Powderly is approved and that of Webb condemned The whole matter which is now ancient history to the reading public is summarized up to the time when it was decided to convene tho supreme council of the federation The council says that all the statements made to them by Powder ly were corroborated during the visit of four of their number at the scene of the strike and the conclusion is reached that Webbs purpose is to disrupt the knights and destroy all labor organizations on tho Central JJnkurton Thugs Denounced In tho summary the council formulates seven propositions the gist of three of them being given above The fourth is as follows That 11 Walter Webb by the employment of Pinkerton thieves thugs and murderers vile wretches from tho slums and brothels of New York and other cities to kill workingmen because they dared to protest against his rule and Strike for their rights is a crime of such were legalized by that body A Question for tha Future Docs todays action close the connec tion of the Federation with the Central strike Mr Debs was asked That he replied is a question that cannot be answered at this time The counci 1 has adjourned subject to the call of the chair New developments compli cations or entanglements are likly to arise at any time Some of our firemen foi insta nee may be asked to take the places of the strikers Should they refuse then they may be discharged In such an event thu services of the supreme body would again be called into play Paralyzed the Local Knights Local Knights of Labor are paralyzed at tho result of ihe appeal of their chiefs They had confidently expected that the Federation would rush to Powderlys as sistance and through the medium of e general tieup endeavor to bring Webb to terms The cause of the men on tho On tral they say is a lost one and with thi defeat goes the union the prestige an the strength of the order A Telegram to Powderly At 6 p m Sargent sent the following telegram to Powderly The suprem council adjourned this afternoon afte

The sixth declares that Webb shows a total disregard of principles of American citizenship dear to every man worthy of the name and reiterates the alleged words of W H Vanderbilt The public he dd Tlio seventh declares that Webb assumes that the Central railway is pri vate property and that his acts in tho niniirtgemant are not matters of public concern that he has a right to discharge men without giving them a reason for their discharge disregarding tho fact that tho corporation for which he plays autocrat is a thing created by laws in tho making of which the men e seeks to degrade have a voice which nco unified will bring his corporation to he bar of justice where his millions and he other millions ho represents will ease to bo potential in directing ques ions of right Knrouragrilient for tho KnlgHts Tho pronunciamcnto then goes on as follows In view of tho foregoing facts he supreme council puts upon its record ts unanimous and unqualified approval of the strike ou tho New York Central nd Hudson River railroad for the cause set forth by T V Powderly general mas er workman as also tho efforts made by Mr Powderly to bring tho strike to ar honorable termination In this genera expression of approval of the action oi the Knights of Labor the course of Vici President Webb is as unequivocally con demncd Tho next pirHgrnuh recites th effort mndo by the council to obtain hearing for the discharged knights uni its failure Can Join in tho Striko Tho important paragraph in the doeu ment is given below It now becomes necessary for the supremo council to say that owing to the fact that the order of the Knights of Labor is uot a member of the Federation of Railway Enpioyes the laws of the supreme council do not permit its doing more than It has done to aid the Knights of Labor and its inability to par ticipate otherwise in the strike is now known and appreciated by Mr Powderly The process of ordering a striko by the supreme council is next given and is very similar to tho usual course and amounts to the proposition that if any organization connected with the council has a griev nce and tho employer will not redress the same a striko is ordered as a last resort Sott Sawder for tho Strikers The conclusion is ns follows In con elusion the supreme council places upon record Us high appreciation of the manliness of the Knights of Labor employed ou the New York Central and Hudson River road strug gling to maintain a principle sa cred to every working mau ou the conti nent and to all men who love justice aud hopo for the triumph of right ovar wrong as fiagrunt as ever stained the pages of history The paper is signed by Frank P Bar gent and A Shahau THE DEBATE IN THE COUNCIL earnestly hope that tho right of which you are the champion j i the great conflict on the New York Central may finally and powerfully prevail The COMMENT ON THE DECISION Muster Workman Has Nothing to Remarks ALBASY N Y Aug 26A United Press representative showed Grand Mas er Workman Powderly the dispatch from Terre Haute saying that the strike Would not be ordered by the Federation Pow le rly said that it was the first intimation he had received of such action but de clined to talk saying that it would not be policy him to make any comments Ho did not seem to be prised or downfallen nt Eliott Block Pension Agent Ind very much sur ths result but went to his supper in good spirits Lo cal labor leaders however looked very glum and wora evidently very much dis pleased at tho action of the council Sec retary Hayes said If the dispatch is true it means a singlehanded fight with the knights doing the fighting and the other organisntlons niillng financially Notes of the Situation NEW YORK Aug from Al bany say that more trains are moving and thatrthe strike on the Delaware and Hud son has collapsed again places ofthe strikers ara being filled with new men and a general resumption of the local freight traffic has taken place The strik ers are getting ugly again aud two of the new men were assaulted and brutally beaten At Buffalo trains are moving but much difficulty resulted from the new switch men not being acquainted with the yards Conductors were doing much of the switching much against their will Preparations were making to clear up the blockade and the railway officials de clared that everything would be all right gain in a few days Vice President Webb says that he has nvestigated the charges made by Pow erly against Foreman Briggs and others on the strength of affidavits of strikers anil finds them baseless At all points however the strikers de clare that the Central is hopelessly crip pled nnd doing no business to speak of YFlmt Webb Thinks of tho Decision NEW YORK Aug Vicepresi lunt Webb yesterday in reply to the question What doyouthink of the action of the Supreme Council of the United Order of Railroad Employes at Terre Bante said It was the only wise course io take There was no principle involved in which they could be interested Tht entire trouble waa local in character and and nothing whatever to do with organ ized labor Whether the Knights of Labor now take further steps will make but little
