on tho part of the men or a protest against tho tyranny of tho rail road officials was presented to us Under the circumstances such a surrender would bo unmanly It would be cowardly and unworthy of the scoresof men who ou two hemispheres struggled and died for the rights of humanity We did not seek tho quarrel The Gen eral Executive Board knew nothing of it until it was thrust upon Now that we have to face it ask tho entire order of Knights of Labor to come to our assist ance with means to win the strike We have to fight a power which owes it lofty bearing to the wealth ithas piled up from the labor of the employees of the road Untold millions are at its command and we want money to carry on the struggle only ask the Knights of Labor to come to our aid but we ask it of all tho members of all organized labor We not only ask of labor organizations but we ask of tho great public away beyond our organization of labor to come to our side Wo arefighting against a ppwecfar more than that which laid clown ns arms at Yorktown one hundred years ago Their light was against one King Today it is against a hundred une of whom m an afterdinner speech notlong ago said There are fifty men in this country have it in their power to con trol the currency of tho United States con trol her commerce and at a days notice stop every wheel in territory of tho United States The struggle is far more momentous than it was during tho American revolution Then our fathers fought for liberty now wo aro fighting to maintain it enemy was ypOO miles today he is entrenched in our own dominions Ho has his fingers aroundour Legislature ho stands at the doors of Congress to bar out leg islation in tlio interests oftho masses presumes to dictate to tho Executive of the Nation he attempts to strangle and corrupt tho judiciary and he docs all these by no shadow of Divine right but by the power of money wrung from the bending backs ofthe railway laborer wrung from the tho farmers of the laud wrung from tho business interests of America wrung from tho very heart of the best and noblest of nations It is againstsuch a power as power COrno right but its own that wo whether wo win or lose the present battle will go onuntil that power is weakened forever publio is damned The real animus of this strike lies in the fact that our order has been strug gling with questions which concern the control of trusts corporations and syndi cates by theGovernment of tho people The allied forces ofthe Knights of Labor and Farmers Alliance are marching on to to securelegislation favorable to the Theyare going there to secure the repeal of certain unjust laws which standin the way of progress and which antagonize justice It is with She hope of turning our attention away from these matters that this warfare is iiade upon the allied forces It is to weaken us when we can do them tlio worst harm and the country the greatest amount of good that theseattacks are visited upon The order and lawabiding conduct of the men on the strike has won the admira tion public and yet the best feelings of tho community havebeendestroyed by ho introduction of an armed force under Robert Piukerton the man who boldly aolds no commission from tho State orNatiou to recruit or arm men for mili tary duty Had the interests of the State of New York required it there are many of old veteran soldiers within her borders who faced death a quarter of a century ago It was not necessary to call upon them and ycfc a hireling mob Of the worst characters in the land has been quartered upon tho people of New York to terrorize1 her citizens to provoke them to anser and wrath to shoot down those who asked for the right to be heard in their own behalf The of the New York Cen tral ofliclals is by tbe nvan ncr in which they violate tho laws of the land During this strike Robert Pinkerton is an agent of thxt railroadcompany He Advertises for men they respond and are hired without regard to the qualifications of manhood Apparently the brute alone is sought for and such creatures will any deed of desperation Adolph Polleshok came to New York August aud made affidavit that he wash irediii New York by the New York Central Company as a watchman and sent to Albany and upon arrival there was a commission appointing him a dcp expense to tlio county andi given a club and pistol and to use Polleshek scarcely

system would bo ordered As he and his three associates havo endorsed the action of the general executive board of of Labor he thoroughly believed tho Supremo Council of the Federation would sustain it Ho also said that tho action of Webb last night in adhering so firmly to the stand taken rendered tho action they had taken necessary Webbs arbitrary methods find utter refusal to arbitrate the situation made it useless to deal with him any longer VicePresident Webb this morning said he did not believe the strike would be nearly so gigantic as the Federa tion and Knights of Labor would have people believe Webb did not doubt that the Supromo Council would call out tho men but he was of the opinion that the number who would respond would not lie so great after all Secretary Hayes of tho Executive Board announced this afternoon that qnrMpnday next at Albany a meeting of District As sembly 246 would bo held Jit which the fix ecutive Board would be present for the pur pose At this
