MORE TROUBLE BREWING, Thn Men of the Huston and Albany Bmul May be Called Out. AI.BAXV, Aug. H.

It is said that rhe men of the aud Albany and Fitehburi; which have beeu the Central road to move freight will be ordered to go out nhen tin- general strike order comes over the route from the Federation of Railway Employes ut Terre Haute. There promises to lie trouble, too, for the Delaware nnd Hudson railroad again. The Central has been sending freight to West Troy and Greeii Island, and from there having it transferred to the Dela- ware nod Hudson.

Hammond says that he does not understand that he j.s doing any more than receiving freight orimnally consigned to his road. To a I'uiu-d Press reporter Mr Treu- h.ilm said. --J have come over here to sec tlie situation tor myself and to make ar- rangements for assisting our brothers. I cannot say lor certain ihnt we shall strike forth.it depends a great deal upon the action taken by the federation at Terre Haute S iturdny. This much I can say, how, ver. ...nd that i.s that our sympathy f.r the sinkers will be .substantially I backed by contributions of money. "It may be that we will go into the i strike on our own account, but that can- not be determi, ed now. At any rate we shall strenuously object to Central freight being handled by eastern roads nud a strike on our awn account will be precipitated by such nction on the part of any road iu our section. believe it is a common cause of labor."

This tuiuUlutes Ihe existing "strike" and the further strike referred to will or will uot take place ILS the efforts of the per- iiis who have lufl our service may or may not ieut with success. I believe that such efforts will fad. The operating force of the company is full, the passenger service of the company ia regn- Inrly performed, and there is no obstruction to its freight service, except lawless int'-rft-r- enceandthe apprehension thereof. 1 am not awure of any diffeionce or Krievancq existins between the Lompuny and its employes; and I must assume that the conference sugsesied by j itn as between the officers of the company and the representatives of our employes, is a conference siiKKcsled be! wei n tho offleers of the company and the ollli ials of the K. of L. Tbe-e otlieialb represent not our employes, but pel-suns who have left our service and have not asked to be re-employed; but who, through these same officials of the K. of L., have asked that the the company of certain persons pnnr to the Mh of AilKllst be sub- mitted to their intcitiu'Hlinll and to arbitra- tiimbysoim nibun.illo be selected iu some waj; a whuul have felt it to be my duty tu de( line.

For the above rea-son it seems tii me inappropriate and unnecessary to have the conference -.uw-teil Otl. H. WA I.TEH WEHB, Tliird Vice President. Mr. Webb vras also interviewed at some length on the situation. He says: "No man has been discharged by this company because he was a K. of L. or n member of any other labor organization. This com- pany has discharged men, irrespective of their membership in the order of K. of L., for drunkenness, incapacity, hreach of duty, insubordination and for lack of sufficient work to employ them, and it will continue to do so whenever proper occasion arises. The people of this state grunted to this company its franchise and made it obligatory upon it to render cer- tain services to the public, and provided tlmt nil its duties, including the emploj-- meiit and disclmine of all clas-es of audits, should he performed liv certain ollicers; and its do not propose to surrender, alunnon ur transfer the dis- charge of those duties, nr any part of them, to anyone ex.-ept their duly ap- pointed successors." Mr. Webb went on to say that some men were dismissed for the above causes, and he been Ly Mr. Povvderlv to arbitrate in order to avoid a threatened strike. Mr. Webb concluded by saving that us us he holds his po- sition in the railro i-l c he de- cline to submit the question of dismissal of employes to arbitration. Kilted In u Shnm Battle.
