Two young men from Lock Haven had been visiting a oousin in WiUiamsport, who by the way has been married nearly three years. Saturday the cousin and her husband were at the illation to depart for a visit to friends at Rooheeter. At the same time the two young fellows were to return home on Niagara. While waiting for the trains to be made up these young wagB ran to a near-by grocer and each bought a package of rice.

Y. Central and Hudson River Railway, involving abont eight thousand men in the employ of the said road, who were members of the great labor organization known as the Knights of Labor. The reasons set forth by T. V. Powderly, Chief Executive of tho order, may bo summarised as fn| lows: The peremptory discharge of be tween fifty and sixty employes of tho roa.;t: ; jearu m t'jfc-r o...- def-nise in l.iu j:r.?---iiut* of Webb auu iiirrwii.

Tho Council baviuj? hoard tue$' itement of its members who ha.^ visited New York for tin' p'irpnfc rf ascertain;- tin true condition of affair: t exliausti"oIy discussed every important position and ai-rivod at the conclusions as follows: First. That tho position of theKuightu of Labor, as set forth to T. V. Powderly, General Master Workman, and tho Gen oral Executive Board of the Knights of Labor, meets with our qualified approval. Second. Thai the course pursued by H. Waiter Webb towards Powderly and the Knights of Labor, notwithstanding his declarations to the contrary, evinces a purposo to disrupt and destroy tho labor organizations of tho New York Central and Hudson River Railroad, p.h was done oy Austin Corbin on Philadelphia r.nd Reading. Third. That the policy of LI. Waller Webb is despotic to an extent that outrages every principle of American citizenship; and if generally adopted would, if successful, reduce the American work-ingmon to tho most degraded condition of serfs. Fomth, That H. Walter Webb, by the employment of Pinkerton thieves, thugs and murderers, vilo wretches from tho slums and brothels of New York and other oities, to kill workingmon because they dared to protest against his rule and struck for their rights, is a crime of such enormity as will associate the name of II. Walter Webb forever with those who, dressed in a littlo brief authority, have used their money to secure power to degrade their fellowmen. Fifth. That the efforts now being put forth by II. Walter Webb to destroy the Knights of Labor would, were the circumstances changed in like manner, he made to destroy the organizations of tho engi ueers, firemen, conductors, trainmen and switchmen, and if auccesaiul it is only a question of timu when a similar effort will be made tu seal the fate of other labor organizations. Sixth. That II. Walter Webb, by tho course he ban pursued 'owards tho Knights of Labor and representatives of labor organizations, iias .-diowu a total dis regard of those principles of citi/oa sovor- , eignty desired by every American worthy of the name, and considering only his money power and the corporate puwor ot the company he represents, hin acts, which speak louder than words, nay in the language of W. H. Vauderbilt, mice thu autocrat of tho Now York Central: "The public bo damned.'' , Seveutu. H. Walter Wtbb seeks to 1 support his arrogant attitude tuwaid thu | working men and labor orguuizanuas by 1 assuming that tho New York Central & , Hudson River railroad is private property r.nd that his acta in tho treatment of his employes is in no matter of public concern; that he can with impunity discharge men and remand them to poverty and render them homeless wanderers without giving thorn any reason or explanation whatever for his conduct, disregarding the fact that tho corporation for which ho plays autocrat is a thing created by lawc, iu Lho making of which tho men ho seeks to de-gntdy have a voice, which urnu1 unified will brine h'M corporation to tho bar ot 'r" !:o|!iiu;s and the o;^;- oiueutWebb is as unquivocaliy condemned. Yl:e power oi" -he Supreme Co-an-.ii the mavtar of tho strike has boon expected to aid iho Knights of Labor through tbeii rc-pvyLiontauves, to secure the recognition of meii uruor hy the omoial of a ric!'. and puweiiul corpuratiou, to seimre tor !l e v, en ikingUKiU, thu victim of automatic power, u heariug, and to perform such other kindly ofiuos as were proper under Uk* oiicaoiBtauccs, demonstrating sympa-j iby and good will thereby aiding tbo j ICnlghu of Labor to bring the s:r;kc to a c. 'se iipon tbo princip'o ol right aud jut -tioe. In this tho council mot with a fai-lire owing ' 3 the autocratic attitude of I), Waiter Wohb. It now becomes necessary i for the Supreme Council to see, that ow-| ing to the fact that the order of the Knig'.ts of Labor is not a member of tin Federated Orders of Hvlway Employee, the laws of tho Supreme Council do not porinif more than it has done to aid the Knights of Labor and its inability to participate otherwise in tho strike, is now known and appreciated by Mr. Powderly. In conclusion tho Supreme Council places upon record its high appreciation of the manliness of the Knights of Labor employed on the New York Central iu struggling to maintain the principles sacred to evory workingman on tho continent, aud to all who love justice and hope for triumph of right over wrong as flagrant as evur attained in the paces of history. 'Signed, ^kank P. Sakoka -i, President. 1 AtUlNt.. W. W. SllEMIAN, Secretary. Vi ."r* l'KF.*!mONT we 11 is hears TilV. SF.Wg, New York, Aug. 2~>.~-Vice President . Webb took with the utmost coolness tho news that the Snprome Council of the United Order of Railway Employes had, at Tcrre Haute, declared against tho strike. In reply to the question "What do you think of tbo action of tho Supremo Council of the United Order of Railway Em- I ployes at Torro Haute?" Webb said that this was she ouly wise course to take.' There was no principle involved in which fhay e;>uld be interested. The entire, tri'ub'.e was local in characior, and had n.tihi'ig whatever to do with organized I labor. Wnetber the Kuights of Labor will now tako further steps will make but ; littlo difference. There aro only a few Knights in the employ of the New York Central. I'OWPEKLY Oi TLINE? THE L"UT>"he POLICY 11F Til K STRIKE. Albany, Aug. Ten of the dis- charged employes of tho Centra! Hudson were examined this morning and twenty this afternoon by Mr. Powderly, and it was shown with a single exception that until their connection with the Knights of Labor there were no charges of drunkenness, iusubordinatiou or iucompotanoyj and that the charges were trumped up against them. A preamble and resolution was adopted calling the State board of atbi\ratioa to order an investigation of tho existing dif ticuity. Before the meeting adjourned Powdorly and Devlin sddrossed tho dolo-gattjs, outlying the course which would be pursued iu case tho Federaliou did not ocdui a general strike. They also dwelt at length upon tho means as the command of the order fo support 'he strike, aud said tho major part of the money would ho furuinhed by the Knight* ail ovei the country.

There were a large num her of candidates iu the field and it was a free-for-all fight until about ten days ago, when the powers that betook a band and the result was several surprises to a few candidates that supposed they were all right and the coveted nomination bad been as good as secured. The happy dreams of these candidates were soon dispelled, however, when the result of the primaries laat Saturday was known.
