the various railroads The report in made np almost entirely of bitter denunciations of Brotberbood of Locomotive Engineers The following are extraoU It is unnecessary to do more than call tbe attention of the of the order to the fact that divisions of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers have passed reso lutions 5hat after tbolr trouble with the 0 B t Q should fcave been settled no mem ber of the order should be permitted to run a train where a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive were employed and why Bacauso forsooth the members of the order have not beeu willing to mabe Of stepping ttones for the engineers to mount higher bscanse they have uot joined in n fiqht agaioat their owu interests to accommo date the baoause iu a word they Uave dardc to bemon and to atteud ta thsir duties I say with einpbasia tbe time ban come when conductors should in averv instance oppose this organization in its de mands of the railway companies because every time yon aid tbe engineers you injars your own standing and probable increase of remuneration Wbere it there au instance on record where the engineers have aided in tbo degree any other than themselves They apply to the switchmen brakeinen firemen one whom they think can be persaadsd lo aid them and soon as tbe trouble is orer commence to prats that their organization keeps itself free from alliance with any other that its members are skilled labor and oanuot afford to place their skill on a par with the unskilled of other organizations by assisting them Behold them now on their knees to the switchmen and brakernena associations It IB time for the conductors to teach tbe railway officers what tha engi neers themselves already well know and are aniious to conceal that ninetenths of the conductors of the United States are capable and trustworthy enijineerf The conductors on tbe Chicago Burlington and Quincy have already demonstrated this and they are ready to do it on other roads I hope sincerely that the time is closo at hand when they will not only ba ready but rilling to do so all over the United States Today the engineers receive pay for the intelli gence ikill experience and responsibility of tbe conductor They have been able to ac complish this result only through the aid or at least the sympathy of the themselves A POLITICAL APSOT MILWAUKEE an early hour this morning General Manager

was moving smoothly Mr Millera attention wa1 called to an opinion that the order promulgated yesterday onttiag down the working force of tha road would givs 1000 votf 3 to the Labor ticket iu Milwaukee Ha said It is my business to take care of tho St Paul rotd and not of the tickets nominated by tho politwal parties I dont believe the order will make any difference I am that most of tne men employed by ths St Paul road will see that their interests Will ba subserved by the iueoeas of tbe ticket which ia acceptable to the business men of the oity Certainly that is for the Interests of

would be sent by the Burlington was refused at tbe Burlington offices An inklirg of bow tbe Burlingtons general advance tomorrow may be met in some quarters lies in the fact that in order to reach the
