New Yoiik, Au?. 22.—With the close 0f‘unlay ends the second week of the strike. The men who, two weeks ago, left their places with the confidence of reinstatement upon their own terms are .ordering the situation to-night in 'heir local assemblies, where they are i0jned in council by the members of the Executive board. Undoubtedly it is true the rank and tile of the men feel at present strong in Hie near presence of their leaders. The heads have been considering their immediate interests and the men are pleased. They feel reinforced and mor ■ hopeful. The beard of arbitration once more r08cnted itself perfunctorily to aid the settlement. Powderly has hastened ,0 accede but the railroad has declined. There is a growing belief among the perron* who are following the course of events closely, that there will be no farther strike. It was rumored that possibly the next move would be the ordering oui of all mechanics along the line of the Central road. On this point Webb was questioned. ••Anticipating.*' lie said, “some ten days ago that by allowing the men employed >“ onr various shops to remain, I was furnishing amunition to the Knights, I at once ordered the shops to he closed and directed that only enough “,eri he retained to perform the actually necessary repairs that were required each At the present time we have fully thousand, ears in the course of construction at West Albany and twelve hundred men have been laid off.” Stat*1 Arbitration Commissioner Donovan this afternoon sent a letter to Vice-President Webb stating:    It    having    come to the knowledge of the state board of mediation and arbitration that another strike was seriously threatened on the lines of your road, he is instructed by the boar*i to again communicate with von aud invite a joint conference in the offices of your company between you and the representative* of your employes, with a view of devising some means, either by arbitration or such other thod as may be mutually agreed as whereby the threatened , may be averted and an it interruption of travel and transportation be prevented. A similar letter was sent to Powderly. Powderly, in his n-ply, stated that the general cxeeutiv* board of the Knights of Labor is willing to comply with the request and holds itself in readiness to respond at a moment s notice. Powderly savs: “We hold ourselves in readiness to" de any honorable thing to terminate the strike or to avert another one, and sineefcly hope this arbitration or such .tiler method as may be agreed upon will have the desired effect.' Mr. Webb responded thus:    “The further strike referred to by you will, or will not take place as the efforts of the persons who have left our service may or may not meet with success. I believe that such efforts will fail. I am not aware of any dith rence or grievance existing between the company and its employes, and I must assume that Abe conference suggested by you was designed to be between the officers of the company and the officials of the Knights of Labor. Those officials represent , not our employes, but person- who have left our service and have not asked to be re-employed, but who. through these same officials of the Knights of Labor have asked that thedischai'-'    ■    company    of    certain persons !><• -a.    i    r.>    their    investiga tion and to arbitrate by some tribunal to be selected in suim way. a request which I have felt it to be my duty to decline.

Ci.KYKhANn. ()., Aug. 22.—Chief Arthur, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, was asked this morning what reply he wished to make to Powderly'* open letter to him. He said lie would be pleased to give Powderly the information sought A letter, however, must be addressed to him officially, as he never paid any attention to letters through the public press. The position of the engineers is well known, but Arthur would be glad to emphasize it if Powderly addresses him a letter in an official way. Washington, Aug. 22.—The result of last night’s caucus seems to have definite-* ly settled the fact that the election bill will go over until next session. It is understood that an agreement was made that no further effort should be made to get the election bill up this session, but it will bt* taken up early next session, and that the president be asked to call an extra session after the November elections to give more time. The members of the house generally, while dissatisfied with the fact that the election Dill goes over, are delighted with tin* prospect of an early adjournment, and while a few suggest a refusal to adjourn until the election bill is passed, there seems no prospect of any such action. It looks now as though the election bill might never become a law, as it will be very easy for its opponents to talk it to death in a short session. A New Question us to Silver Purchases. Washington, Aug. 22.—The treasury department will make another effort for the re lease of more money by the purchase of silver to a large amount, provided the offerings are not greatly in excess cf the market rates. An interesting question has been presented to the department with regard to the enforcement of the law so far as the purchases during the present month are concerned. The law requires the purchase of 4,500,-000 ounces of siver each month, but it (lid not become operative until the nth inst., and the question arises as to whether the requirements will be met by the purchase for a proportionate part of a month of an amount, less than the legal quota for the month. If this i* decided in the affirmative the department will not be required to purchase more than 2.780,000 ounces 'during the present rn out h. Wiiuloiu's Remarkable Bond Scheme. Washington, Aug. 22. -At the treasury department it is predicted that the extraordinary and unprecedented proposition of Secretary Windom to redeem the outstanding 4 per cent bonds will result in offers aggregating at least ninety per cent of the cutin* series within the next sixty days. It is stated that the secretary realizes that something must be done to counteract the stringency in the money market, caused by the heavy exports of gold consequent upon the exceptionally large purchases by importers, who are anticipating the adoption of the McKinley tariff bill, and that this is why he proposes to now pay all of the interest which may accrue at tic time of maturity if the 4U bonds are offered for redemption at this time. completed cases this mom It was Marriny tfc Co., Cooper’s friends. This concluded the commissioners’ examination, and Martin Bailey, chief of the law division of the pension bureau, was called and gave testimony relative to the office practice, adding that no particular consideration had ever been shown in the treatment of Lemon’s cases, as he know absolutely. Commissioner Raum next produced the stock book of the refrigerator company and furnished a list of stockholders which were verified by the committee. Ile testified that it contained the name of no employe in the pension office except his own and that no stock was ever off* red to any employe. Cooper declared the proceeding was exparte; that it was beneath the dignity of a member of congress or a respectable attorney to parti* ipate in such an investigation (he had not been permitted to look at the stock book). The committee offered to allow him to inspect the verified list, but he refused to do so unless he could obtain excess to the books themselves. Adjourned to September I. FIGHTING THE UNION.

Aug. 27.—Mr. Webb comes with a prepared state-rcmpted bv Powderly** manifesto. Webb start* out with the statement, that “no man has been discharged by this company because he was a Knight of Laborer a member of any other organization.’* Then for the first tim** .-inc*' ti.** beginning of til** controversy, Webb names the list of offenses among which ar** those because of which th*' Knights of Labor ar** said to have been discharged. Webb continues: "The eoinpanv discharged the men irrespective of their member--hip in the order of Knights of Labor for drunkenness. incapacity, breach of duty, insubordination and for lack of sufficient work to employ them: and it will continue to do so whenever proper occasion arises.

Nevx Vouk, Aug. 22.—This is a day of expectancy in the railroad situation. No one knows what to-morrow will bring forth—whether the great strike which is now believed must come will be declared on, or whether it xviii be postponed until Monday. There were plenty of rumors afloat this morning. The difference between the statement of Sargent, ot the firemen and Sweeney. of the switchmen. is commented upon freely. Sargent said yesterday that he and his three colleagues, chiefs of the orders which comprise the federation, were unanimously in favor of Powderly’* declaration in favor of a strike. Sweeney said the position of the supreme council on the matter was tile same a* the conference with Powderly, and that the four chiefs xvcre not unanimously in favor of a strike. Haves, Wright and Delvin criticised Sweeney's statement this morning. Hayes said:    “Sargent    was    th** only one of the four who wa* authorized to speak on the subject. What he said was not only correct, but so far a-the four chiefs ar** concerned, official. If Sweeney made such a statement yesterday as has been attributed to him he bas certainly changed front.* “It is immaterial what Sweeney said,” says Wright, “I believe th** council will endorse Sargent’s views. They see there is nothing else for all of us to do but strike.’* AN INVESTIGATION To HE MAUK. Commissioner Donovan, of the state board of arbitration, reached hen* this morning.

In ease no settlement can be reached here it is understood that the -'tat** board of arbitration will at once investigate tin* The Republican Order of Business Committee Reaches a Conclusion. Washington, Aug. 22.—The republican order of business committee has reached a conclusion, but some details remain to be settled. The tariff bill, after a date to be fixed, i* to be considered under th** five minute rule until a vote is taken. The date of this hanoi been decided and will be subject to arrangement with the democrats. It is expected that a vote will be reached about the 5th of September.

The committee xviii probably report to-day. ALIEN CONTRACT LABOR BILL. tin* -t Tike. The Amended Measure Presented House. Washington. Aug. 22.—The amended alien contract labor law bill was presented in th** house to-day from the committee on labor. Its principal features ar*1:    It    i- made unlawful on th** part of an alien to enter the United States under any contract to perform labor or service. If the master of a vessel shall bring any such alien into th** United States he shall, besides being subject to a fine and imprisonment, be required to return th** aloin to the port of embarkation. It shall not be lawful for any person or corporation to encourage any alien laborer, mechanic or artisan to emigrate from any foreign country to th** United States by promise of employment through advertisement or otherwise. The provisions *tf the aet shall not apply to professional actors, artists, lecturer- regularly ordained ministers of th** gospel. learned professors for colleges and seminaries, or professional singers. THE FIFTY-FIRST CONGRESS. The Semit e Proceeds Wit Ii t he Consideration of the Tariff Rill. Washington, Aug. 22.—In the senate the tariff bill xvas taken up, the pending question being on th** amendment to the paragraph relating to files, tile blanks and rasps. Tho amendment is to substitute for classified specific rates th*-uniform rate of twenty-five cents ad valorem. Rejected. The tariff bill was laid aside and tile house bill to amend the aet of th** 22d of June, 1874. for the relief of the settlers on railroad lands xvas t:ik«*ii from th** calendar and passed. 'I ii*' tariff bill xvas then again taken up. As one paragraph after another was taken up amendments wore offered, principally by McPherson, but they were all rejected. The paragraph relating to -hot guns was passed over informally, Aldrich -tilting thut the finance committee had some modifications of it under consideration. The paragraph relating to wood screws having been reached Carlisle said that was an article which American manufacturers were selling abroad very much lower than they were selling them at home. He produced price lists in sup-oort of the statement. This was another I!list ration, h** said, of the policy adopted by th** other side by allowingdraw backs on export articles. He went on to say that offering American good- at cheaper prices than they were offered at home was not confined to goods where a draw back was allowed on free material. Mr. Stewart said that the assumption that there was anything wrong in toe sole of American manufactured goods in foreign countries cheaper than at home alose from the want- of information. Na amendments were agreed to until p: ragraph one hundred and ninety was r* ached, which was, on motion of A Urich, amended so as to read: "bullion * I gold, silver or other metal, not .-{eeially provided for, twenty-five per t < ut ad*valorem.” Having reached th*1 paragraph a- to lead ore, the -enate adjourned. Th** House. Washington, Aug. 22.—In the house this morning the conference report on the bill making an appropriation for an increased clerical fore** to carry out the provisions of the dependent pension law xvas agreed to. Mr. Henderson, of Illinois, submitted the report of the committee on rivers and harbors on the senate amendment to the river and harbor bill recommending non-concurrence in these amendments and agreeing to the conference asked by th** senate. The house then went into committee of th*- whole on th** measure. Mr. Henderson said the senate amendments increased the appropriation carried by the bill about 85,000,000. It was 1 this increase xvhich the committee asked the house to non-eoncur in. After concurring in about one-half of the senate amendments the committee rose. Mr. Mason, of Illinois, rising to a question of privilege, said some days ago a resolution had been adopted alleging that certain gentlemen had been fraudulently using the mails to create a sentiment in favor of th** Conger lard bill, and calling on th** postoffice department for information on th** subject. A resolution had b** sent to the postoffice department with the request that the papers in regard to tho matter it** transmitted promptly. This had not been done, ll** had railed at the department thro** or four times and been informed that probably th** papers would not bt* sent up until Saturday night. Then they would be of no use as th*' previous question on the bill was ordered at four o’clock to-morrow. Ii is charge was that improper influence had been brought to bear upon th** department of the government to retain certain papers in its possession. He moved a committee of throe members be appointed to wait on th*' postmaster general and ask t hat th** papers be furnished in time to be used in debate. Before any action wa- taken, th** house took a recess. At the evening session the hous** passed thirty-three private pension bills including one granting a pension of 850 a month to tho widow of George B. White, late chief of th** bureau of yards and docks, and then adjourned. Labor Troubles Imminent—Details of Emperor William's Visit to Russia Shrowded In Mystery—The Pr rtuguese Settlement. London, Aug. 22.—English's labor troubles are on the increase. A conference of British ship owners, representing a capital of £4,000,000, yesterday decided to fight the labor unions. Their men had not struck, nor threatened to strike, but the lockout of tile officers of th*- merchant marine in New Zealand has led to demands for officers from England to take their places. These ended in failure, owing to the fact that nearly all the capable officers in England are membersof a trades union and sympathize with their friends in the colonies. This angered th** ship owners and the resolution to tight the union xvas the result. What form the fight will take is not indicated, but tiler** can be no doubt that any effort to rid themselves of union sailors and officers, or to discriminate against them in the matter of promotion, would lead to a gigantic strike, which .would paralyze British commerce. Another sign of the times is tile determination of the London Docker's union to have their officers take contracts for loading and unloading vessels. This, if agreed to by th** ship owners, would at one stroke abolish th** middlemen arui give th** men a -liar** of th** profits as well a- their daily wages. In Belgium 8,(MIO miners have struck in the Morinago district near Mons, and as usual, the conservative press puts tile trouble down to the socialists. Emperor William’s visit to the czar is not well covered by th** London papers, owing to th** excessively strict precautions taken by the Russian police to prevent strangers from getting too much in- ! formation. Nothing but meagre reports of reviews and dinners is allowed to leak I out, and Europe, which i* watching th** I visit with deep anxiety, must wait for : some trumpet blast from tho kaiser or some big movement of the czar's soldier- I before it can even guess what concio- * siotis may have been arrived at by the i txvo autocrats. In the meantime Bulgaria I is as quiet as a lamb and no sound comes from the Balkans to indicate whether the storm is about to burst or not. In Armenia it is the revers**. Both Turks and Armenians ar*- acting as if they expected to face each other in the field at an early day. The Ottoman government has decided to arm the savage and fanatical Kurdish tribes xvith Martini-Henry rifle.- purchssed in England and several Armenian prisoners have been quietly strangled in prison in Erzeroum. The Armenian peasantry have cut the telegraph wires between the Turkish garrison- and matters are rapidly approaching a crisis. The papers ar** congratulating Lord Salisbury upon tho successful settlement of th** dispute between England and Portugal, which at one tim** threatener' to result in war. By the terms of th*-agreement England recognizes as Portuguese territory th** “Hinterland.” or territory back of Angola, from ll degrees of latitude to the northern boundary of th** German sphere of influence, Groat Britain having fro** way between lier northern and southern territories, and all th** country to the westward of the Nyassi to be British. Though a conflict at arms with Portugal could hardly have end*'*! otherwise than in a victory for England, yet th** popular feeling was very strongly averse to a resort to fore**. ami the peaceful conclusion of th** affair is hailed with pleasure by all cla-sos and parties. The sentiment of the English people displayed throughout ibis controversy is a striking indication of the change xvhich has gradually come over the public mind in recent years in regard to war. Some year-ago the mere fact that Portugal was a small and weak nation would not have been regarded as any reason fur refraining from a war which promised to add considerable area of valuable territory to its rich dominions. The war with lh** brave little community of Boers in South Africa, which ended so inglori-j ously for England, i- a proof of this fact, and it can hardly be doubted that the shame which that barbarous but f ut ii** attempt to crush a liberty-loving and inoffensive people reflected upon England is largely re-ponsible for th** chang* of feeling. Lord Salisbury has by his course in the Portuguese affair recovered some of the prestige which had been lost on account of the ill-sueeess of many of hi- effort in home polities.

New Yohk, Aug. 22.—Then* was an enormous crowd of brokers on the stock exchange at th** opening, answering for a renewal of loans and money. The crowd all day was the largest ever on the floor. Renewals were nearly all made at the legal rate of 8 per cent per annum with a premium of >4 per emit added. Toward noon as high as pr*-niiurn and and intere>t was paid for money but the urgent demand was easily supplied and then the rate fell off gradually and a hopeful feeling generally prevailed. It was th** general belief that the last circular of the treasury department assured easy money after September I, and that th*' danger line has been passed. .Judge Fair.iii Decide** Against the Railway Commissioner*—They Wilt i’roh-ahly Appeal—The Blue Gras* Palace Iowa News. except th H;- At who has j damagi Shout.-i it Cai ■af** II.

Senator Plumb'* Resolution to Prevent Hie Sale of Intoxicants in til*' Senate Wing. Washington, Aug. 22. -Senator Plumb's resolution to prohibit tit** sa!** and .drinking of liquors in the senate wing of the Capitol is intended to correct an evil xvhich has grown to large proportions, and which is already nominally under the ban of the committee on rules, which is in charge of the subject. Speaker Reed's order against drinking in the house wing is practically a dead letter. Instead of the drinking being done at the counter, it is done at tables, but the results are about the same. In the senate end, for some time at least, there has been no attempt at concealment of the sui** of liquors, and anything from ginger ale to benedictine may be had on demand. It has really grown into a scandal, and the resolution of the Kansas senator is a timely protest against the custom.    _    _ RAUM'S DEFENSE.

Aug. 22.—Commissioner Raum continued his testimony before the investigating committee to-day. IL* said that some of the money obtained from Lemon went into tho referagter company, but he declined to state how much. Cooper presented an article, published in the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette on June 9, containing a denial of tho truth of the charges brought by Cooper. The commissioner denied that the article had been prepared in his office and taken to General Boynton. He had a number of interviews about that time with newspaper men on this subject. The intcrxicw was, he said, substantially correct. The commissioner said that probably Lemon had spoken to him about the advanced cases before he submitted his letter. Certainly other attorneys had done so. As to the system of completed files the witness said that the pension office relied solely upon the* certificates of the attorney, who was assumed to be a credible person, boing accredited by the court, that the case was complete and ready for action. The commissioner produced a statement of the cases on the completed tiles showing there were noxv 115,564 of such cases, including S,110 of Lemon’s cases.

Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 22.—When President Harrison left here to assume the duties of chief executive of the nation, lie had a valuable cow which he refused to sell, she being of the Jersey breed and a most excellent milker. Tit** cow had been purchased in order that “Baby McKee" might have pure, fresh milk any hour in th** day or night. Tho animal xx as so gentle that the family became very much attached to it. During the day the cow browsed upon the spacious lawn at the Harrison residence and at night was -tailed and bedded with as much care as were tile family horses. To find tile animal a good home during his four years* absence was one of th** cares that occupied the president while arranging for his departure to Washington, but the matter was ti nail y settled by placing the animal in the hands of a gentleman who resides near tho city. It seems that the trust thus accepted was faithfully observed till last week, when he animal wandered into the city imits and was taken up and impounded by Patrolman Mefford. The ifficers had no idea whose cow it .VMS. and of course made no inquiries. Ihe temporary owner never thought of oohing in th** pound for the missing :ow, as he supposed it to be well known, and thought that no one would dare to impound the president's cow. The animal would have boon sold yesterday but for th** fortunate discovery of her identity. 'rite fees were promptly paid and the animal returned to the possession of its temporary owner. With the discovery that Harrison’s cow was in the pound came also the discovery that Consul General New's cow had be**n taken up and impounded also. Harry New promptly [taid the fees and the favorite bovine was taken home to bo more carefully guarded in the future. SAN SALVADOR.
