WALTER WEBU. Third Vice President. BUFFALO, Aug. executive committee of the Supreme Council of the Federation of Railway Employes went into session shortly before one o'clock Monday afternoon. General Mas- ter Workman Powderly was with them. Mr. Sargent said that he may decide 10 call together all the members of tho Su- preme Council in New York, but de- clined to say whether the strike would be taken out of the hands of the Knights of Labor. When tho conference took a recess Mr. Powdorly was seen by a re- porter He said the conference had mado Mr. Sargent its spokesman. The question as to whether Mr. Webb is to be called on by the executive committee remains undetermined. It is conjec- tured, however, that Mr. Povderly has offered to give tho strike into the hands of the Federation of Rail war Employes, thus ending it as a district K. of L. con- cern, but making1 its influence moro widespread. The New York Central and its con- nections are running their passenger trains through on a fair approximation, to schedule time, but while the passen- ger traffic remains practically uninter- rupted tbo freight situation at this point has grown very much more se- rious Every siding has Its complement of freight cars, mainly loaded with per- ishable freight, and even the Lake Sbore sidetracks for a distance of twen- ty milcs out, are packed with abandoned trains. Between East BulTalo and Idlo- wood a very long "dressea beef" train lies motionless, its contents, to say the least, not improved by the delay. Theie is no strike as yet on the Lake Shore road, but tho switching of freight for that road is all done in the Central yards and they are not only already glutted with freight, but have no switch- men. So the management has been ob- liged to find other placns to store its ac- cumulations andhas utilized every avail- able siding. Grand Master Sweeney, of the Switch- men's Mutual Aid Association, yesterday. [Ie was as conservative as ever, but was evidently smarting under the insolent treatment he nad received at, the hands of Superintendent Burrows. Mr. Sweeney said: "The strike Is a question of endurance betwqen tho men and the company, and I don't think the mon will be the first to giro in, as they are in tho right In tttis matter. The Knights of Labor strike was a separate atTair: the strike of our ordor the rail- road authorities prroipitated upon them- selves by ordering our members to take the places of strikers, which they de- clined to do." AI.BAXT, N. Y.. Aug. Hatton. tho Pinkerton man who shot the boy Dwyer Sunday night, was held yesterday for assault in the Srst decree to tho result of the boy's injuries. So bail will be accepted, as the attend- ing physicians say that the boy will probably die, the bullet baring lodged near his spine. Robert Pinkorton said that, a personal examination of his moo showed that in every case they had been stoned before they fired, and in some oases fired upon. Chief Wulard. of the poiioe, rewired ietter from Mr. Bissell yesterday in which he claimed that the Pinkorton only fired in self-defense, but that the road would warn them against the hasty use of their guns. The Knights of Labor are issuing bulletins in which reiterate the caution to keep away from the trarks and preserve the peace. They say they are as sttwnjr as ever and tr-a: has jnst IxMraa.

Tho dcpa'tment has replied, re- fusing to grant tho on tho ground that it was not disposed to ex- tend tho bonding s for Canadian coods that they were offering to other countries. It is that this action of the Anirrifari fore- shadows a general action against Cana- dian bond'ine priviloa-es. and there is great uneasiness in railway circles. A Itrutal Content.
