he had been investigating the cause of the Central and asking for an in terview Monday to discuss the question of arbitrating the differences which ex isted between the New York Central and its Knights of Labor Webb in granted tho but at tho same time wished that the matter be presented to him in Powderly replied the next saying he had been called away front tho city and that he was obliged to commit to paper but would rather discuss the matter in per He says If I am correctly old and faithful employes of the New York Cen tral have been summarily dismissed from the service of the because they were active membersof the Knights of It is represented to mo that up to the time of ther discharge they were faithful to the interests of the company and not one mark of discredit stands against the industrial record of any of these men who were discharged prior to August in brief is tho statement of thc men The frequency of the dismissal left but little room for doubt in the minds of the men that they were all in danger of dis Railroad Trainmen and Frank grand master of the Switchmens Mutual Aid Association of North when asked in regard to the said Powderly had invited them to meet with

the most difficult of these her majestys parliament the was and ministers laid before charge at a moments notice and hence the The whole question hinges upon thc discharge of the knights of labor because they are If it can be shown that these men were were working an injury to their employers right minded men will say they were treated as they If they were discharged for cause the railroad com pany has everything to gain and nothin to lose from If they de served dismissal from the service of the company none of us will ask for their how they were displaced because of their connection with Knights of Labor it should be for if it is to be the policy of the New York Central that no Knights of Labor are to be employed then a statement to that effect will clear up all doubts and there can be no future There will be noth ing then to arbitrate so long as you hold to that The interests of the the interests of tho company von and the rights of men toor ganize for selfprotection are all involved in this Thc policy of the order of the Knights of Labor is to work peacefully in the line of educational and legislative It is not the policy of the no matter what its enemies may to enter hastily upon The present strike may be pointed to in refutation of that last Hundreds of cases that have been peacefully and quietly adjusted through the intervention of the Knights of although not
