One hundred and forty years ago Jon

ot religion in the world."

The Board of Trade met last night
and discussed matters of great imp- rt
ance, but nothing definite will be nevei

city's welfare, and which will both sur
prise and please our citizens.
The national shipping register is an
interesting record. 'The names of f amou
Americans appear thereon in largo num
bers. The name of Grant is inscribed or.
a great many American vessels. Nearly
a dozen ships aro called after Andrew
Johnson. Three boats bear Benjamin F.
Butler's name, while five us the nime of
Winfield 8. Hancock. Gen. McClellan
has eight vessels named for him, Robert
E. Leo three and Jefferson Davis on-.
There is a boat in Boston called Grover
Cleveland, and two in New Orleans beai

scholar. . "W ith a few of their friendi- I
they went to a photographers yesterday
to get their photos taken. The scholar
has been in thehibit of addressing the
teacher ai "Mi" on account of the above
incident, and the photographer overhear
ing that word whilo he was grouping th
young ladies, came to the conrlusicr
that some relation existed bee ween the
two, which caused him to remark, "Now
ladies, you ere in nice positions, if the
'mother would only step back a little."
This utterance is causing no end of mirth
among a few intimate friend.", but you
would have to ees a Bird drinking from
a well, Spa or Ford before you could as

"Some Say This and Some Say
That," Form Your Own Con
clusions. "So long as no other road will handle
through freight from the C, B. & Q., the
strike will be coafined to that road only.
If other roads commence to handle such
freight, then there will be a general
strike of every road in the United States.
We do not care if the C, B. & Q. aro
able to procure men for all their engines,
so long as the road docs merely local
work, or in other words, are not aided
by other works to transfer their frcighi.
I went from Chariton, Iowa, a short time
ago, us the Iowa Secretary of Joint
Board of Adjustment on Burlington Sys
tem, which is now in session in Chicago.
We have forwarded telegrams to the
"boys" to remain firm, but thought it
expedient that some one should be select
ed to go and visit them personally, cheer
them up if necessary, and answer any
auestions rouceruinir the strike: but I
find my mission to this city is needless,
for the boys require no encouragement;
they are firm to their principals and cheer
full. In fact, although I am glad to
see them, still, if I had been aware that
they were such a jolly lot of determined

"It will make no difference to us if we
are out twenty years, because there are
40,000 engineers and firemen in the Unit
ed States belonging to the Brotherhood,
and the C, B. & Q. members are only a
drop in the bucket, aud if our funds be
come exhausted, which is not likely for
years to come, the assessment on those
not on strike for our support, would be
a mere trifle. But as long as the C.,B. &
Q. are not running through freight they
are losing money every day, ana it is
madness for them to continue the strike
for very long. General Manager Stone
has already offered propositions and is
weakening every day. Good night, sir."
This conversation took place at 9 r. m
last night is the "Brotherhood" meeting
rooms, between a Herald reporter and
Mort. L. Bixlcr,a member of the Broth
erhond board in Chicago, and exubiius
the situation concerning the present, and
what is likely to happen in the future.
There is no secrecy about the meetings
of the Brotherhoods. Anyone can visit
their rooms in K. of L. hall, over Weck-
bach's store, and will be made welcome.
At 9:30 last night the rooms of the
Brotherhood were crowded with as hand
some and well-dressed ladies aa ever
graced a mechanic's assembly. Theii
lady-like deportment, polite and intelli
gent conversation, is seldom surpassed in
circles who have better opportunities of
display and learning. Mothers were there,
whose ruddy cheeks bttokened health
and contentment. Their littlo prattlinc
babes leaped and jumped with joy as
they were handed from oue to the ;h?i
iu playful glee. Rollicking children,
overflowing with the exuberance of vouth
were in abundance, while the young men
and their sweethearts played cards or
sang selections. What are usually called
the "old and grave'' where laughing,
joking and as happy as children just let
