"T have announced my continued Mr. Webb, ''and defined exactly the position the; com- pany has assumed towards the strikers. In that every point was touched upon and the men know from it what to ex- pect" At the headquarters of the strikers in this city the fact that the executive officers of tho Knights of Labor had at last decided to take an active part in the struggle gave ronowod encourage- ment to the men, who expect great ry- sults- They declare that it is more than likely that the knights employed on the whole Vanderbilt system will bo ordered out unless some sort of settlement is reach by the eomtmny and the General Executive Board. Tho latter body will hold a conference with the district load- ers to thoroughly learn iho situation of alTairs. This accomplish''.1, it is under- stood the Executive Board will call upon vice president Webb and to sub- mit tho whole matter to arbitration. If this proposition is declined it is claimed the Executive Board will order a tie-up. AtrnrKX, N.

Aug. 10.--William Barnie manager of the Baltimore base ball club last night received a tolograrn from th Hartford, Conn., club which stated tha the club had disbanded. This will, owing to tho disbandmont of the Wash- hat of last year. Wheat has ,'d with sales of 30.IWU.000 bushels ore. Corn having been pushed quite igh before the report appeared, has inco declined on large sales. Pork s half a dollar per barrel lower, but ogs are coming forward in groat num- ers and do not advance. Cotton has) alien throe-sixteenths, but is still ao igh that, purchases are limited. A heavy decline appears in the week- y output of pig iron, which was ons August 1, 175.727 July 1 and June 1. Prices show littlo hange, though one largo Southern con- ern is reported to be cutting liberally, .lie demand for finished products is ained and some form1; of plate iron aro i little higher. The wool manufacture hows no improvement and many mak- TS express growing disgust at the .cantinoss of purchases for tho Cheaper grades. Wool does not ad- -ance, and the heavy imports of goods ;ontinuc. Coal is very dull and the out- itit still falls below hut year's. Dry goods jobbers note that Southern aud Western buyers arc more Humorous in this market than usual, bun while cot ton goods are well sold up the demand or woolens is only fair. The? reports from other cities aro gon- erallv f.ivorable, no complaint boint; anywhere made as to the volume of cur- rent busines-j. Chicago notes that Irought in some localities has alToo.tod jrops so that purchases will bo dimin- shed, but the injury is not supposed to DO of serious magnitude. The dry goods and clothing sales exceed last year's and co'ileetions wore never better. Tho exports of merchandise from Now York fall balow last ye.-ir's by twonty- ninc percent, for half of August, while tho imports continue very heavy and those conditions, with the advance in speculative markets, are not entirely favorable.
