pursued by Webb towards Powderly and the Knights of notwithstanding his declarations to the evinces a purpose to disrupt and destroy labor organizations on the New York Central and Hudson River railroad as done by Austin Corbin of the Philadelphia and policy of Webb is despotic to the extent that he outrages every principle of American and if generally adopted if reduce the American workingman to a degraded condition of by the employment of Pinkcrton thugs and vile wretches from New York and other to kill workmen because they dared to protest against his rule and strike for their is a crime of such enormity as will associate the name of Wobb forever with dressed in a little brief have used their money to secure power to degrade their fellow the efforts now being put forth by AVcbb to destroy the Knights of Labor were circumstances in like manner bo made to stroy theorganizations of trainmen and if it is only a question of time when a similar effort will be made to sealthe fate of other la bor by the course he has pursued toward tho Knights of and the representatives of the labor or ganizations has shown a wish to disre gard those principles of citizens over desired by every American worthy that and considering only his money power and the corporate power of the company ho his which speak louder than say in tho language of once autocrat of the New York Central The public be seeks to support this arrogant attitude towards the working men and labor organizations by assuming that the New York Central and Hudson Oliver railroad is a private property and that his acts in the treatment of his em ployes is 111 no sense a matter of public concern that he can with impunity dis charge men and remand them to idleness and poverty and render them homeless disregarding tho fact that the corpora tion for which ho plays tho autocrat isa thing created by In the making ot which tho men they seek to dgrado have a voice onco will bring his corporation to the bar of justice where his millions and tho other millions ho represents cease to bo potetial in decid ing a question of this In view of tho foregoing facts the su preme council put upon the records its unanimous and unqualified approval of the strike on the New York Central and Hudson Kiver railway for tho cause set forth by as also the efforts made by Powderly to bring tho strike to an honorable In this gen eral expression of approval the action of the Knights of the course of Webb is unequivocally Tho power of the supreme council in tho matter of the strike has been exerted to aid tho Knights of through their repre to secure the recognition of their order by the official of the rich and powerful corporation to secure for the the victims of an autocrat a hear and to perform such other kindly offices as were proper under tho demonstrating sympathy and good and thereby aiding tho Knights of Labor to bring the strike to a close upon the principles of right and In this the council met with owing to the autocratic attitude It becomes necessary for the supreme council to say that owing to the fact that the order of the Knights of Labor is not a member of the federated orders of railway nor supreme council prevents itsdoing more than it has done to aid the Knights of and its inability to participate otherwise in the is now known and appreciated by Eeferrlng to the laws of the supreme council relating to the matter is concisely presented as follows If tho members of either on any havea grievance it is submit ted to the proper officers of the road by tho local grievance In event of a failure to obtain proper the chief executive officer of the having the grievance is called upon and in connection with thc committee seeks to amicably adjust the If failure still appends the efforts to adjust then the supremo council is convened at the headquarters of the railroad with whom the confer ence is requested and its influence is to be to obtain a just to all If failure still fol lows the efforts to remove the cause of complaint and the by unanimous decides tho grievance to be of such gravity as to justify a it is promptly in which event all of the members of tho various organizations employed on the road where the grievance fire trainmen and switch abandon their In tho supreme council places upon record its high appreciation of the manliness of the Knights of

only wise course to Whether the Knights Labor will now take further steps will make but little differ There are only a few Knights in the employ of the New York It is a queer commentary that council
