THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. VOL. IL NO. 208. SALEM. OHIO, WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 3. 1890. TWO CENTS. BALL AND BAT. Investigation of the Xew York Central Trouble. Vice President Webb Refuses to Tell About the Hirin? of Puik- ertoa Men. Say They Were tor to the KuightA of YORK, Sort. Puroell, Bobertson and Donovan, of the State Board of Arbitration, yRSterday began ;heir investigation of the causes of the itrike on the New York Central Hud- son River railroad. H. Walter Webb, third vice president of the company, ap- peared with frank Looruis, counsel for the road, and Flaiauton Harris, of Al- biny, to advise him. General Roijer A. Pryor acted as counsel for the Knights of Labor. J. J. Holland and A. W. Wright, of tboGonr-ral Executive Board oi the kniirhrs. v.-ore present. Vice Pri'siueiu Webb .said: "Tbo com- pany has had no controversy with any of its employes. On August 3 a number of our employes voluntarily left our service. Since then their places have been filled nn.i the road is operated suc- cessfully. The cause alloged for these men leavin? was because seventy-eight men of tue on the rond had been discharged because they were Knights of Labor. These men were discharged, by my order, for good and suQicient cause. The company had a right to dis- charge any of these men without giving reasons for so doing. On August 9 Mr. J. J. Holland culled upon mo as a repre- sentative of the knights to talk the mat- ter over. I refused and have done so each time a proposition bas boen mado to me since." On being cross-examined by General Pryor, Mr. Webb said the men had been lischarged for unsatisfactory service. JJis knowledge was obtained from the secret service bureau of the road. Wit- ness could not produce the reports made by his secret service mon, as they were oot now in existence. Mr. Webb was then asked a'hen hs first arranged for the employment of Pinkerton men. Mr. Harris objected, but the board held that the employment of agencies to protect its property was a matter of public in- terest and not a private matter as held by the counsel. Thereupon Mr. Harris directed Mr. Webb not to answer. On being asked if he ever requested aid and protection from th-- police before heem- ployed Pinkerton men, Mr. Webb said that he had not. This ended the testi- mony for the Central. W. A. Valentine, Master Workman of Assembly 10509, and one of the dis- charged employes, was the first witness for the knights. Tne witness received a written communication from the as- sistant superintendentwhich stated that his services would not be required after August 4. Then tbe witness told how ho had boen cautioned not to appear too prominently as a Knight of Labor, as it would interfere with his promotion. Dennis McCarthy, train baggageman, testified that ho was discharged on 31. On August 1 he asked Mr. Toucey if his discharge was final. Then Mr. Toucoy accused him of being one of tbe "kickers'5 and a Knight of Labor. The witness appealed to Mr. Toucey to re- member his twenty years of faithful service, and the latter revoked the dis- charge, but when witness reported for duty afterwards he was ordered to give up his badge and keys by a subordinate of Toucey's and was then discharged. E. J. Lee, Master Workman of Dis- trict Assembly 24tJ, testified that fSe Assembly ordered the strike because tne company bad violated an agreement with the men in which it was agreed to give the reasons for all discharges. Wit- ness had always perfcX-med bis duty faithfully and at the time of his dis- charge was an ortra hand and was on leave until ho was ready to report for work. On August 8 told tne witness that be was an agitator and would not be taken back, but that he would not be blacklisted and if ho could a situation on tbe New Haven road he (Tnucoy) would give him a reotfm- nxindation. Mr. fowderly was called and related his interview with Mr. Webb, but- said nothing new. Pending the strike, he said, be had no interview with any the road's officials. Grand Circuit, Kuccfl.

Uo was toidto run his trnin up to the Escambia rivor bridge, some tniles distant, and stop on the bridge. Tliero was nothing left for him to do but obey and ho did so. Thera the train stopped on the bridge. The engineer was told to get off bis engine and did so. Then the robber directed Sizer to go to the express car and force an entrance, the robber putting a heavy mallet in his hand. Sizer did so and burst open Lha car door. Express Mes- senger Archie Johnson was standing in the car with his pistol in his hand, but seeing Sizer he lowered it. The next minute he was covered and told to lay down his gun and he obeyed. Then the robber standing iu the car door com- pelled tho messenger to open his safe and hand him ail the money. While this operation was going on the fellow was standing in the door looking at his victim and firing first to one side of the train and thon the other to overawe thn passengers and tho train crow. When he got the money the rob- ber told Sizor to follow him. The man showed tho way to the engine, bade Sizer to pull out, and with a parting shot and a wild yell, dashed off in tho bushes and was lost to sig-ht. A posse has left Flomaton and another has left Mobile in pursuit of the robbers. Sur- prise is expressed here that the robbers selected this particular train, as it is well known that the other trains carry tbe most of the express money, No. 0, the robbed train, carrying very little at any timo, and a small amount on this occasion. It is said that Rube Burrows was sf-en in Florida, and there is a possibility that he ordered the of his gang at Flomaton and joined thorn there to superintend.-the affair, but this robbery looks like tho work of Captain Bunch.
