Buffalo, Nov. 23. At 1 30 y ester,
day aft rnoon a special train of three
eoacJies was started out at the William
street yard for Sir re, fx A new en
gineer, who had eouie here from tbe
Chicago, Burlington Jt Quincy road,
was at the thruitle and forty-eight en
gineers occupied the coaches. An old
employe was put in the cab with the
new Chicago, Bu-.mgton & Quincy
man to pilot him over the road. An
other old employe also acted as con
ductor. It is stated, and some of tbe
new men confirmed the story, that tbe
exodus from the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy has been in the nature of
crews rather than individuals. In
many instances tue conductors, en
gineers, fireman and the brakemen,
making up a regular freight crew on
the big western road, have started for
Buffalo in a party and made applica
tion tor work on trains on the Lehigh
So far as consistent, it is said the
Lehigh people will complv with their
One of tbe men made the following
statement just before tbe train pulled
out: "Most of us men who went out
on the great Chicago, Burlington A,
Quincy strike. Men from the eastern
roads who claimed to be brotherhood
men, and some of them rom the Le
high, came west and took our places.
Tbe company gave tbem the preference
over such of us as they took back.
When tbe strike was finally settled,
the new men were given all the regular
runs and we had to go on the rounds,
Brst in and first out. Many of us
made very little time and we could Lot
make a living."
It was stated a party of Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy men who arrived
here were met by a committee from
the strikers and offered 1500 if they
Would return home. Tbe reply was
"We have come here to get work and
we will not go home. We are going to
make a living and if it lsjscabbing we
will make the most of it."

Washington, Nov. 23. As said in
an Associated press dispatch before
tbe officers of tbe State department
fuliy believe the Queen has by this
time been restored to ths Hawaiian
throne. While they do not fix any
precise time as to when the reinstate
ment took place, they believe force'
was not necessary. It seems, however,
that while actual force may not have
been authorized, there, was to be such
a show of force as won hi make the
provisional government ielieve the
United States would use all the power
at its command to bring about the res-'
toration. The statement was also
made that if Mr. Dole refused to
accede to the demands of Minister
Willis he should be thrust aside and
restored, even if the administration
would have to go to congre s for au
thority. At tbe time it was claimed
that there would be no necessity for
any such action, as the information
from the islands was to tbe effect that

Barcelona, Nov. 23. Another fol
iation has been caused here by the
discovery of a nest of anarchists at 29
Rona san Pablo in this city. Since the
attempt upon the life of General Mar
tinez Campos and the bomb outrage at
the Lybeo theatre, the police hare been
most active in searching for anarchists
and in watching all thore suspected of
being in anyway connected with anar
chist conspiracies. It now appears
that 29 Rona san Pablo was the place
where the chief anarchist club of Spain
met and from which IU chiefs directed
the policy of many other anarchistic
clubs in the kingdom.
At the anarchist headquarters tbe
police arrested Miguel Nacher, presi
dent of the .Spanish anarchists, and
two women who are said to have acted
as messengers extraordinary for the
anarchists in conveying message to

which they were transmitted to their

dubitable fact is that those in the con

felt and expressed the utmost assur

news that ex-Queen Liliuokalani bad

Assertions as to Minister Wil.is' in

It is possible that Minister Willis has

before President Dole that the provis

without force, and so has deuunined
to await further instructions. It"

The Rill road Strike.
Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 21. The
freight blockade on tbe Buffalo section
of tbe Lehigh Valley railway is com
plete. The promise of the officials to
move the usual trains was not even
partially fulfilled. The Lehigh Valley
yards are crowded by long avenues of
freight, trains all ready to move, but
they are without engines or crews. Of
the thirteen yard engines only two are
working, and one of these did not go
to work until late in tbe afternoon and
It is manned by a green crew. Eighty-
four freight trains bound east and
thirty-seven bound wet are stalled in
the buffalo yard -121 blocked trains in
At the office of the Reading freight
agent it was learned that that road had
not refused to handle any of tbe freight
offered to it by tbe Lehigh Valley.
We not only are handling Lehigh
freight," said Chief Cli-rk Powell, but
we are taking freight for Lehigh pointi.
Superintendent Rouiter, of the Cen
tral, whs also seen and asked if that
company accepted freight from the
Lehigh. "We are not doing any dif
ferent than we always have, and I do
not know of any reason why we should.
If the Lehigh has any freight to offer
us we will carry It. We certainly shall
not refuse any freight that is offered to
It was said, on wbat ought to have
been very good authority, that the
switchmen will probably decide to go
The most interesting and serious
question with regard to the strike is
whether it will spread to other roads.
A prominent engineer said: "If we can
beat the Lehigh Valley alone, tbe men
on other roads will not be called out
We think we have the road now where
ItwiU have to come t;terms, but if
they get enough men to do without us,
tbe Lackawanna, Erie, Jersey Central
and New York Central men will be
called out, and perhaps those on the
wbole Pennsylvania system.
Tbe strike on the western division is
assuming rather a serious aspect.
While the officials in reply to all in
quiries say, "All passenger trains are
running," tbe fact remains tbat al
though this may be pratially true, it
does not reflect the situation by any
means. Coal aud freight traffic Is tied
np as tight as a drum, and the few pas
senger trains which are allowed to run
on account of the mails have to crawl
along from point to point and do not
attempt to follow the schedule. Even
tbe may be abandoned at any time,
although the strikers say they will not
interfere if the company secures non
union men to run the mails.
Superintendent Ksson was much an
noyed when several strikers who had
signified their intention to go to work
failed to report. They bad been visited
at their homes by a committee of
strikers and persuaded to quit.

Greenhut, of. the whisky trust, Is at the
Grand Pacific. "We are running at
full head In all our distilleries," he
said, ''In anticipation of the increased
tax. Whether it will be increased I
have uo knowledge. I have only press
dispatches that the committee on ways
and means is likely to report lu favor
of the increase. The deficit in the
revenue must be mado up; whisky has
no organization to light a raise and I
think one will be made. 1 do not put
any faith In the report that the in
crease will affect the stocks in bond.
Such a law could not hold. When we
put our spirits in bond we give security
to pay the tax at the rate then prevail
ing, and have three years within
which to withdraw. It is a contract
that no act of congress can violate."
