Reported Labor Blot Near Alar The Tanderhllt R. Strike. By Associated CLEVELAND, Aug. Associ- ated Press dispatches from Albany yesterday stated tliatit was repoited that Grand Master Sargeant had ordered out the New York Central lireuien. Sargeant, who arrived here this morning from Terre intercepted by an Associated Press re- porter, and when told lie was expected in Cleveland to arbitrate the strike question on the New York Central, he said: "I have come to Cleveland to meet a committee of our nteii from Youngs- town to consider the question of busi- ness relative to a convention. My trip has nothing to do with the strike on the New Central." Grand Master P. M. Arthur of the Brotherhood ot Engineers, is also here and both are stopping at the same ho- K This seems significant., ALBANY, Aug. Man- ager Young of the Delaware Hud- son this morning said: ''Nearly all the men who wero out have reported for duty. They said, however, they could not go to work until they re- ceived orders from their committee, which is in consultation with the leaders of the Central scriko. Unless they go to work at noon their places will be filled by other employes of the company now on the way here from various points along the road. The employes of the Delaware Hudson are only oiganized between here and Troy and there are no fears of a geneial tie-up." NEW YORK, Aug. Presi- dent Webb of the New York Central said this morning that the only delay incident to the strike was at East Al- bany. Webb did not put much faith in the rumor that the firemen will be called out, and the strike on the Dele- ware Hudson he regarded as a small matter, easily The local assembly of the Knights of of Dover Plains denied to-day the truth of the report that the assem- bly had disbanded. Lee affirmed to- day that everything is progressing sat- isfactorily and that the men are as de- termined as ever. BUFFALO, Aug. 14 Knights of Labor held a session here this after- noon and state that by to-morrow noon the Central will find out that the strike is not over. The walls of the Central depot hear a lot of freshly made signs similar to those that ap- peared the night before the strike. A general meeting is called for to-night.

Arthur Chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, says positively his organiz- ation is not to take any part whatever in the strike and does not believe the firemen will either. Proceedings.

Aug runner who arrived early this morn- ing, after traveling 50 miles from Stonewall, reports that a row was nar- rowly averted at that place and that hostilities are only prevented by the superior forces at the command of Governor Byrd, who has so over-awed the disfranchised whites that, after some display of arms, they prudently withdrew. Stonewall was the largest voting place, and was tne center of in- terest in the election. Both candidates for Governor, Sam Paul and Win. Byrd, were at the polls all day. Each had a large number at his back. Paul's'supporters were the whites, while the full- bloods and most of the half-breeds wero for Byrd. The latter also had the militia under Jihrpay. Everybody was heavily armed, and when the polls opened matters looked serious. Governor Byrd brought the militia about the polls, forming a circle about it. The first squaw man was refused the privilege of voting and retired. The whites gathered their forces, and a time it looked as if they meant battle, but Byrd with with his militia stood firm, and the whites, seeing they would be worsted in a fight, left, and Byrd and his militia ran things to suit themselves, and even prevented In- dians from voting whom they knew were for Puiil. The result was: Byrd, 100; Paul, 6, and Burris (Independent) 15. Enough is known to assure Byrd's election and the success of the so- called Indian party, but the election is bound to be contested.
