"A milkman at n fair mado 50 rupees

Edward Eggleston originated the
Christian Endeavor Society in his pop

ter," which ho wrote In 1872 In a small
houso In Schormcrhorn street, Brook
lyn. It Is In this fiction also that may
bo found "Tho Church of tho. Good
Licks." In 1877, when Mr. Eggleston
became; the pastor of tho Loo Avenue
CongregaMonal Church (now the Leo
Avenuo Theater), ho organized for the
young people a Society of Christian En
deavor, in imitation of the one in his
book. The weekly meetings in tho
church drew together such a company
of bright young men and women as that
town never witnessed in similar gath
erings before or since. All the pro
fessions were represented; nnd the ob
ject was chiefly social culture. It was

OEBS AID HOWARD TALK.
VIEWS OF THE AMERICAN RAILWAY
DO NOT THINK THE SAME.
Howard Declare That the Order Is Vvnti
Tno' Still Imprisoned President
Hold Tlint tho Organization Will
Soon He Stronger Than Ever
Their Plans for tho
l' t tire.
Chicaoo, Aug. CO. Oeorgo W. How
ard, vieo president of the American
Railway union during tho great strike
last year, , who wiis sent to jail by
United States Judge Woods for con
tempt of court In violating Injunctions
preventing tho order from interfering
with trains during tho strike, was re
leased yesterday from tho Joliot jail
and enmo hero at once. Regarding
the future of tho order, ho said: "Tlio
American Railway union is a thing of
the past. The efforts to reorganize
it, 1 am sure, will never succeed.
Every railroad official has received
notice from some of tho
other railroad organizations that ho
will allow tho American Railway union
to raise its head with peril. Only last
week a railroad man at Joliet was dis
charged because It was rumored that
ho had belonged to tho American Rail
way union. In regard to the order of
Master Workman Sovereign of tho
Knights of Labor, which requests la
boring men to refuso bank notes in
payment of obligations, I think It is
tho sheerest nonsense, tho worst kind
of bombast, and ninety per cent of tho
working people of tho country will
look upon it in that light. The pooplo
need money in uny shape and I predict
that the order will bo ignored."
Dobs was visited by his wife and sis
ter. He declares that he has much
work to do answering letters and look
ing after the order. He says: "What
wo Intend to do is to build up tho
American Enilway union and mnko it
tho strongest organization in tho
country. There aro 880,000 railroad
men In tho country, nnd 1 know that
seven-eighths of them aro with us.
But they do not speak their minds, at
tond meetings or join tho union for
fear of the blnclcllst. Tho General
Managers' association has declared
that ho man who took part in tho
strike or who joins our union can work
in this country and it passes
tho blacklist around, although
there are n few laws against con
spiracy, which, it seems, are Intended
only for labor unions,- not managers'
unions. Wo aro going to get around
tho blacklist simply by having n secret
union. There will bo no public meet
ings. No one will know who joins It
anil the man who denounces it to the
company's agents may bo a director.
By January 1 wo will have agencies in
all tho principal cities of tho union.
Bums will work In Chicago. Good
win is going to Winona, und from
there he will work to the West. Kel
ler will establish headqmuters at
Minneapolis, wh'cli Is his home.
Rogers is going to Pueblo, Col., Hogau
to Ogden, Utah, and Elliott will work
in the East. It Is u, gigantic task, but
with tho help ft our friends wo will
succeed. Each district supervisor will
havo a lot of assistants who will go to
tho homes of the men who des.re to
join and there enlist 'them In the
union. It is the only way to over
come tho system of espionage under
which wo constantly work. As soon
as I got out I will go to Terre Haute
unit 1 exnect it will tauo mo a montli
or moro to straighten up affairs in tho
business office of tho union. About
January 1 1 will start on a tour of tho
country, speaking and organizing
unions, with tho ultimate object of
unifying and harmonizing all labor

limine Shrink it Mule on Account of
Nbw Yokk, Aug. SO. II. G. Dun &.
Co.'s weokly review of trado says:
Tho volume of business shrinks, ns is
natural in August, nnd tho shrinkage
seems rather larger than usual, bo
cause transactions in July wore some
what inflated for that month. Some
industries nro doing moro than over
beforo in August, nnd the prospect for
.fall trado is good in others, although
much depends on tho crops, and tho
outcome is less clear than tho specula
tors on either side are disposed to ad
mit. Industrial troubles havo not en
tirely censed, but during the past week
havo become much less threatening.
Tho price of whedt has fallen 3?
cents during tho week, recovering a
fraction on Thursday, in spite of all
efforts to hold back supplies from
farms and to encourage buying.
Wheut ought to go abroad freely at
present prices, but Atlantic exports,
flour included, havo been only 1,052,
C02 bushels for the week, against
2,004,704 last year, and for four weeks
only 4,348,002 bushels, against 10,937,
447 last year.
Impressivo stories of short crops
abroad havo little weight in tho pres
ence of such a record, and the absten
tion of foreign purchases proves moro
effective than tho withholding ot
wheat by western farmers. Natur
ally the tifty-scven cent wheat of tho
Pacific coast still goes forward freely

Corn has also declined four and one
half cents, while pork and lard, with
accustomed inconsistencj-, rise a shado

open tho door and let them in, which
he did by informing tho baggngo man
that they wero held up and that tho
robber had a gun at his head. Upon
getting into the car tho oxpressman
was compelled to open the smaller safe.
He could not open the larger one. nnd
tho robbers proceeded to blow the top
of it out with dynamite In tho mean
time the fireman managed to to give
tho robbers the slip, and going forward
ho uncoupled tho engine from the train
and made tho run to Gothenburg to
securo a posse of men to help capturo
the bandits. In a 6hort timo twenty
voluntcors were enrouto to the scene of
the robbery, but before they arrived
tho men had disappeared.
Tho bandits wore black slouch hats,
with black silk handkerchiefs for
masks. They were about five feet ten
in height and would weigh 150 pounds
each. They wero roughly dressed and
tuned their voices to disguise tho tone.
They rode horses and evidently camo
in from the hills. Tho windows wero
all blown out of the baggage car by
tho explosion ot the dynamite and ifc
seems that tho bandits were experts in
using tho explosive.
When the dynamite exploded tho
passengers wcro considerably excited,
but wcro not molested.
The section foreman at Woman ha3
seen men around tho place of the rob
bery for several days and has a good
description of them.
