Tho orolu- tions were remarkably unfortunate in this respect, souio of the most extraor- dinary collisions and other mishaps oc- curring, either as tho result of ineffici- ency on tho part of the men or faults In the construction of the vessels. Despite the enormous costliness of tho maneu- vros the naval journals ridicule the whole affair as a fiasco. So shots were exchanged, and in fact opposing sections of the fleet did not sijjht each other. The critics severely condemn tho Ad- miralty for allowing such slovenly work to bo douo by the fleet, and on every side are hoard iudisruant com- plaints of corruption in tho buroau of naval construction. It. is eharct'd lhat the deterioration noticeable in acrv- ico is only tho natural aud inevitable Afreet of the jobbery ubich prevails at headquarters. TJIT.Y WOULD IHKIGATK.

Cinoin- of the Federation to the press dis- j patches for the official reply to his ap- ueal. The outcome may prove a death blow to tbe knights. At the same time it is t vindication of the conservatism of the Federation. It was formed to prevent strikes, instead of promoting them, and in tbe very first case upon which its su- premo tribunal has been called to sit in judgment it has demonstrated its intojj- tion of living within its laws, and yet it only after a warm struggle that tbo conservatives prevailed as against the supporters of war to the knife. When the members of the council came to- gether Monday morning the report of tho commutes was debated in detail. Downey, of Chicago, one of the repre- sentatives of the Switchmen's Union, made a two hours' speech in which he brought sledec-harcmer arguments to bear aeainst the proposition embroil the united orders iu a striUo. was no lack of speakers on the othc-r side and the debate went on for nearly five hours. Finally a vote was reached. .Tust how it resulted numerically is knowii -oniy to the delegates and will appear only in the secret records of tbe order, while the former aro as tight mouthed as ciiins. It is belie-, ed, however, that the three delegates from tho Switr-.h- mon's Union, two from the conductors, two from the trainmen and one from tho Sreraon voted in the negative. This would make the vote eight to four, and it required the vote of two of tho three members representing each order to de- cide wbich way that organization should vote, but it also required a unanimous vote of all four orders before a strike could be ordered. Hence even had two representatives of throe orders been in favor of backing the knights by a gen- eral tie-up, the opposition of the three switchmen would have defeated the pur- pose. As it was, tho friends of psaco had enough votes and to sp'ira. Following- is the rnr.r.ifosto of tho Federation: QE lttrirAHTER'5 OF SrrREME OOUNCtr. OF TNIIED OF RAJI.WAV EM- TEKUF.
