PinLADELriTiA, Sept week's Journal of the Knights of Labor, undor the caption of "A Deed of will say: The wrecking of a passenger train on the New York Central railway Fri- day morning has filled the public mind with horror. Kothisar more fiendish has been recorded in criminal annals. Tha almost miraculous fact that no lives were lost does not lesson tho hideous- ness of the crime, and if, as it Is devout- ly to he hoped, the perpetrators can b3 discovered, the only regret will bo tht; the penalty which tho law provides is altogether inadequate. What prospect there is of tne perpetrators of the crime to justice we can not toll. Mr. Webb says ho has a oluo.

Rasbach, A mechanical engineer, tastifled to bein? an expert in mechanical refrigeration. He had raet a man by the oi A. Smith, who claimed to bo tho inventor of tho Universal refrigerator. Mr. Cooper began to Question the witness as to the value of the refrigerator: whether or not it was, In his opinion, worthless and a fraud. Mr. Raum objected to this s-vi of evi- dence, claiming it was not for in tho resolution. Mr. Cooper cl-insd that it was a part of the resolution and snid if the committee suppressed this testi- mony he would go to the House and tho country and show that the committee were suppressing thus venting him proving the charges he uad made. Mr. Cooper said he intended so by this witness that ilr. Smith had crot up a stoc't company of his own in Mom- phis and collect-ad Innre sums of money then decamped; that ho came to Washington and that Mr. Raum was now presenting the refrigera- tor to the company. The coti'nittee de- cided to look into the matter pend- ing their action Mr. Smyser was called. He retold how ho had bought stock in Of Fivo Members ProYldcd fot by tha TavifT BilL lldrich Reciprocity Ar Passes the Senate. fe A FCSIOSJTICKET.

Still it seems harcUy possible that a crime so j the refrigerator company, tha amount horrible could be committed without he owned, how and when be paid for It. some tt-.ce of its parpotrators boinij found. That professional procurer of assns- sinations and subornor of porjury, Rob- ert Pinkurton, and that employor of as- sassins, Mr. Webb, do not hesitate, in the absence of the pretense of evidence, to assert that tho crime is chargeable against the strikers, and ttie formor adds that he has evidence that some or.o high in the councils of the Knignts of Labor instigated the deed. Knights of Labor could afford to ignore tho state- ments of these men; Pinkerton's tongue can the character of no one; while Webb's untruthfulness.even when restrained by tbe solemnity of an oath, has been abundantly demonstrated. But while we need care little for what the Pinkertons and Webbs may say, it is of the utmost importance to us what the public may believe or oven con- jecture, and no good end will be served by closing our eyes to the fact that, however unjustly, a certain measure of suspicion rests in the public mind unon the strikers. When we consider that tho of the men would be certain to suffer- if property were destroyed or injured, we can not believe that any Knight of Labor was concerned in this Aovili'h but it is useless to ignore the fact that there is in the public mind some suspic- ion that strikers or sympathizers with the strikers are the guilty parties. What Is the duty of Knights of Labor, then? Clearly to do every thing in their power to assist in the discovery of tho culprits. If, as we believe. It turns out that no metnb'T of tho order Is among the guilty ones, then the strikers will be cleared of even a doubt. If, on the contrary, it should be proven that any Knight of Labor Is implicated, none are more interested than the members of the order in clearing themselves of all suspicion of sympathy with lawlessness and crime by assisting in bringing the perpetrators to justice._____ Mr. Cooper aslied him if he had not told Mr. that he did not have any money in it. Ho dsaicd tolling Mr. Lewis anything of tho kind. Ue said he had a talk with Mr. Lewis aod had told him he did not own all tho stock he represented, as he some of it in bis name for other parties Mr. Lewis said they had had the conversation referred to. He had understood Mr. Saiysor to say that ho did not have a cent in the company, but simply represented others. BiCUTES JAILED. Democratic Convention, ST. Minn., Sept.

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
