About the same time Kooney was notified by the Centra] that their West Albany shops were iu danger and should exjuct bim to furnish .prr i on. The inn rtant switclies al. Ertbi, Albany were tilli- in the afternoon >v2b three sets of ma- -ach set going out when appealed to by .IB strikers. Five switches are without any cure und tho others are under KICOU hands, and un acci- Uyt ia probable at any time. At o'clock New Oeatra] local to Troy ran off an switch the engine was derailed. It was fouuii that the green switchman bad turned bis key the wrong way. The track blocked for orer an hour. Tlie freight train whioh left New York yesterday morning arrived at Albany at 5 o'clock and an attempt was maile to bring it across the bridge aod it iien stalled on the freight track. It is believed that it will be moved this morning and their is suspicion that a bold attempt will be made to break the blockade at West Albany. Engines have been called for and a new lot of Piukerton men arrived last night. Karly in the morning these men, now numbering 350, will form a cordon at West Albany and the work of moving the freiifht mil be begun. The men say they will not allow the freight to go, and the road hay it will go. There IB the greatest anxii-ty over the fact that the new- men engaged are very ignorant of the business and travel is very light, people refusing to risk their lives. to Swear In Pinkerlon Men. At 8 o'clock lust night Superintendent Bissell received a telegram from Vice President Webb, telling him to have the sheriff swear in the Pinkerton men deputy sheriffs. Sheriff Koonev, when applied to, refused emphatically to do anything of the kind, but said he would swear in any reputable citizen brought to him. This action prevents the Pinker- tons from acting outside the company's lines. The knights at this hour (11 p. m.) are jubilant. The Federation of Labor met lust night aud expressed their sympathy, pledging their support and assistance to tho knights. This order ig of the largest in the country. The strikers will this morning make ap- plication to Judge Guttman for the ar- rest of one the Jfrnkerton detectives upon the ground of personating an offi- cer. They will thus make a test case. The second freight train from New York arrived here at 11 o'clock, but no attempt was made to bring it across the bridge. The first train to come from Syracuse wince Sunday arrived at 8 o'clock last night. Firemen May Strike To-Day. The Brotherhood of Engineers and also the firemen held separate meetings last nlKbt lioth were iu session for about four hours, and when they adjourned an- nounced that there was nothing for publi- cation. It is understood that the engineers will not go out, but that the firemen are to -strike to-day if any attempt made to move freight. The engineers in such case will refuse to run engines with green fire- men. Mr. Bissell said late last night; "We will get steam on twenty engines to- day and will move freight rapidly." Hen. Porter is here but says that no militia will be ordered out unless there is absolute necessity. AT EAST SYRACUSE. Strlkern Not to Interfere Wltn Movement of Freight. N. Y., Aug. The "yard Is cleared of strikers aud the Pinkerton men have was the message which came over the wire from East Syracuse at about o'clock lust evening. The Pink- ertou detective force, re-enforced by others from the west, bad gone to East Syracuse about 4 o'clock in the afternoon with Un- der Sheriff Austin aud several deputy sheriffs and an outside force of railway employes. At the yard they formed in a line and advanced through the freight yard there, the strikers all retiring before them without resistance and the PlnJier- ton men and railroad men began tha work of making up aud forwarding the f i eight cars containing perishable prop- erty which were tied up there. At o'clock the train bearing the mail from the east which should have reached here at liSO p. m., arrived la this city and was tbe fimt passenger train to go through East Syracuse yesterday. At o'clock a train that should have gone east at p. m. pulled ont> of the Cen- tral station, closely followed by a spscial train of four cars filled with the Pinker- ton forces and railroad men, At p. 111. the fast fraught from East Syracuse pulled into the city. It wag a very long line of loaded refrigerator cars. A United Press reporter was informed that the secret of tlie whole matter was that Governor Hill felt compelled to take L'ome action in reference to the strike. The day bad been occupied by Acting Sheriff Austin, Assistant bnperintendent Gold of the Western division and the military offi- cers in holding consultations, the results of which are said to have been quickly communicated to Governor Hill. The Hmuargo Must be Lifted. At noon the governor is alleged to have inquired what the civil officers had done. On receiving u reply asserted that the governor culled about him half a dozen lenders of the Knights ol Labor at Albany and ml- 1 them in very plain terms that iche embargo must be lifted or he would cer- Inmlv order the militia out at once. This brought thing-, to a crisis, and the revolt at lOnst Syracuse is supposed to hare bei-ii brought about in part, at least, by this information. Mr Holland of the Knights of Labor ex- ecutive board arrived at Syracuse on one of the first pa.ssenger trains from the e.iKt Unit arrived nfter the Piukerton men. arrived. He met Under Sheriff Austin. and is reported to have said that he woul'd do his best to prevent violence. The strik- ers will not make any demonstration. To Take tlie Strikers' Places. CHICAGO, Aug 12 800 men haye been hired in this city by a representative of the Xew York Central railroad to take the plnces of tlio striking switchmen an4 brnkemen in the east. The men are nof told to what point they will op sent, the UHtal answer- tu them being! "You, will learn when vou get on tlie train."

BUFFALO, Ant-. horrible discov- ery was miidc in u sewer pipe leading from a waler closet in Robinson Dick's con- fectionery manufactory at No. 110 street yesterday morning. The pipe had been cluidftnl for some days and plumbers were engaged in learning what the trouble was. The engineer of the establishment, while milking an examination, poked a stick down the pipe and it came in con- tact with nn obstruction which proved to be tho large and badly-decomposed body of a mrile infant. Coroner Konney hud the remains taken to the morgue, and word was sent to the police, as ft was bclkived that the child was born alive. Detectives were detailed on the cose, and after an investigation in-rested Belle Nicholas-Benedict, a grass widow, who was appointed forewomau of the place yesterday morning. The woman's arrest caused great sur- prise to everyone, aa it was known that she had not beau absent from her duties for a long time. When she was taken be- fore Superintendent Morin, however, confessed, and stated that she gave birth to the child lost week, but in order to con- ceal its birth has kept on working, bear- ing up under agonimng pains ever since, She was examined by a physician, who found her to be in a terrible condition, and she was sent to the General hospital. There is strong doubt of tlie woman's living. Shi- hail not lived with her husband for some lime, but lioard.-ii with her mother, who lives on Hamburg street. NO ferred wlio can furnish a horse und give their whole Jmc to the business. Spare momenta may be profit- ably employed also. A few vacancies In lowtu and cities B. K.
