This tune Delegate Morrissey, of tho Tra.nmon. who had also h.ippenod to lie, in Xeu York at the inception of tho tro-iblp. set the ball rolling with a care- fully prepared statement which was strongly favorable to the knights. After this a general discussion was initiated, It was very quickly developed that a decided difference of opinion was enter- tamed concerning the adrisability of the 1'Ji ration taking- up the cause of the Icmsriits. Everybody present was agreed tl e main question that the cause u: the knights uas a just one; that Fow- Qfirly had throughout pursued a wise and course, and thit Mr. Webb an.i -solely to blame for the situation by hi? persistent re- j to an amicable adjust- of the difficulties, but whether, ail these facts, tho way was f fie Federation to take unarms o.

T.-.e kirsrhts, however, were not with- their and oral stirring pro made in which tho coun- s-as urged to display its manhood by star, ling shoulder to shoulder with It was contended with emphasis that even if it rofraineu from entering ring at this time, it was evident, pairing from Webb's attitude, that'it "DP compelled to do so in its own in tho near fuftire. inasmuch as was clear that the Contra! proposed rid of orjranizod labor. Finally t.ir; debate had dragged along for hfi-irs and at least two of the wavor- :.ad bf-on brought around to the decisive action, a committee of appointed to prepare certain as tbo member of tho  H that UIUL-, and tVs :s o suggestion wade by llelerate that tho trdejrr.H. h w.'.i ha.o plenty to do to-day. At eight o'clock last night tho sub- committee again went into session to consider the paper prepared by Secre- tary Dobs. In a lengthy interview Cniyf Sargent indorsed the pjsitio.-i in the letter addressed to Mr, but .ide no further statempiit-, bep.ring upon the probable outcome of UK- pvoaeiit nieot- iny. ALII vy v, N. Y., Aug. At Warner's a few trains of general merchandise are st-ill stalled, but one oC was moved out yesterday. At Albany the blockade has certainly been broken. The first week of the strike there was not a clear track evcr-pt the passenger track. Sunday it was found that there wero as many as eight sidetracks com- pletely cleared, while the two freight tracl-s u-ed for freight are both in U-.P. The trains uu through yesterday were the Unrest since the strike began, and that went west had sixty cars, each heavily lade.ii There were also five trains bound south, of equal length. At noon Saturday A -2 K. of L, ordered all its members emplovedat the Green Island yrud, of the ,'i Hudson railroad, as well as those, at work in this city. Tho oi.1'. r was generally obeyed and the Delaware Hudson company finds itself con- fronted with the samo .sv.to of affairs that existed about a week ago, wuen a similar tie-un went into The trouble grous out of the .ui.'.Hnr of Central freight bv the Delaware Hud- son road. The situation hem is mom critical than at any MIICO the strike be- gan. Despite the fact that no action has been taken at Tr-i'-p U-utp. it al- together probable that by to-day noon every railroad running into this city will be tied UP. These roads are, the New York West Shore. Dela- ware Hudson, Boston >fc Albany and Fitchburg road. The Central a.ti'1 Dela- ivarc Hudson are now partially crip- pled. One of the prominent men of District Assembly 210 said night: Fitchburg and oc Alb.ir.y continue to roll Central freight and we shall shut them down. Fitchburg and Boston will be trie central places." Last night Pinkerton dispatched fifty of his men to Rotterdam Junction, where the West Shore and Fitchburg roads connect. Jt is thought there will be trouble at that point. Mr. Hammond, superintendent of the Delaware Hudson, was asked last night if it was true ;h.'.t men brought from Canada ic the sauc- ers' places. 11" said the was false. but in tV% light of fii i-e his answer looked queer. Yesterday ho telephoned to Chief of Police Wil'lard asking for police to-dav, as he oxDUfted to freight trains new men. The strikers say that if tlv qtfen'p: is riale with the v. hols road will tied up. The or.lv freight rnui.ed yc-Dtenlay by the D. was a couple of through trains and some emp- ties. The road is a direct connection for tho north for the Central, West Shore and Pennsylvania railroads. YOP.N. Aug 2" Work- man Powderly. Scrretarv Hayes and John Devlin, of tne Executive Doard of the Knights of Labor, left last night for Albany, where Mr. Powderly .vill address a mass meeting to-night. The board will be joined at Albany by J. .T. Holland and the future movements of the board will be determined. It has been decided, however, to establish headquarters here to Conduct tho opera- tions of the strike. Messrs. Devlin and Hayes said that nothing definite had been heard from Torre Haute. Interest now centers in the meeting of District Assembly 340 to bo held at Albany to- day.

Hear AJiuiril L. Wordcn, the h'H-inr of thr' C'-icsson Moni- tor in the battle of It impton Roads against the Confederate ram Merrimac, March 0. ISOO. was an object of interest to many. The white cruiser Kaltivnore, which was selected to bear Ericsson's ashes to his native land, was anchored northeast of Ellis Island in the harbor. The other naval vessels were anchored on a line west from the Kaltimoro. In the order was first the old monitor Nan- tucket, and as the tug Xina. bearing tho remains, p-issed on her way to tho 15al- timore, minute euns wore fired from a battery on the Xantucket. Colors at the navy yard and on all naval vessels in tho harbor were dis- played at half-mast The flags at Gov- ernor's Island and Forts Hamilton and were lowered. The puns on Cattle illiam. on Governor's Island: Forts Wadsworth and Hamilton and on each of the United States war vessels fired a national saluto of twenty-one guns as the Kaltirnore passed down the bav. Early in the morning tho marines from ail the war vessels in port wero collected from the dilforent ships and taken to tho navy vard. Then with tho marines fro.n the navy yard a hittalion was formed and the men transferred to the foot of East Third street. The bat- talion marched to the rrarblo cometerv in Second street. Here the entire col- umn was to form. Rear Admiral Braine was in general charge of the ceremonies, in co-operation with Maior General O. O. Howard, commanding the Depart- ment of the Atlantic. During the removalof the casket from the vault to the h'-arse the Swedish hymn was sung in the cemetery by the Scandinavian singing society. As the casket was borne to tho hoarse the bat- talion of marines presented arms. Tho casket was decorate.1 with Swedish ami American flags intertwined and hand- some floral wreaths with tho name of Ericsson laid on tho lid. At the Battery the marine battalion formed line and presented arms as the hearse passed. The band played the Swedish national hymn. Commander W. II. Whitney and aids superintended tho embarkation of the body on the navy yard tug. The tugboat preceded by tho of the vi ssels of the lleot in doubh column and followed b" the talna aiid 'joats from all the naval ves- sels in a double column. When the fleet of boats arrived at the Baltimore the line was broken and all returned to thrir respective vessels. The casket was placed on tho c-i tafalquo on tiie Baltimore and tho invited g'insts y. turned to the Whore. Tho Baltimore then voir'ned anchor and steamed the bay. ___________ and llrokrr A Half Iiirii of "the MII.TOX, Pa., Aug. tempera tnre that was up in tho eighties Friday afternoon, with occasional flashes of lightning, changed shortly after mid night and at threo o'clock Saturday morning there was a quarter of an inch of snow on the awnings of the stores in tho business part of tho town.

Mr Willuuus did not think that tho striKers would endeavor to carry the war beyond .their owu ranks, but that they would resume connection with tho roads for which they worked before tho association was formed. The men say- that the fight will go on. and that tho dissolution of the association will only make a bigger tanglo than over. Pack- ers and their representatives take tho same view of tho matter and do not look forward to immediate relief except through an amicable adjustment. If the strike is not settled to-dar the entire packing industry will probably havo to suspend operations, throwing over men into temporary idleness. JLUOKs SQUALLY.

Hofsrox, Tex., Aug. ia every reason to beliovo that a strike will be inaugurated on the Southern Pacific by the Brotherhood of Locomo- tive Engineers. Four engineers wore recently discharged for what tho com- pany considered irood cause and some of them were reinstated. The engi- neers then demanded pay for tho timo they wore laid olf, which was rofused. After full discussion between (ronei al Manager Ivruttschmitt and tho griev- ance committee the company oll'ored to arbitrate the question, but the engi- neers would not sgroe to this and the alfair looks squally. The whole matter has been referred to President Hunting- ton for his decision. Should he sustain the position of tho general manager thu men will go out. CKIMB OF MANIAC.

Sawtolle for tho murder of his brother, Hiram. Jt is said that a inass of strong evidence has boon secured to prove that the crime was committed in New Hampshire and not iu Maine.
