The St , Louis Knights Openly Eebol Against
Chief Powderly's ' Orders.
An Appeal to the Public From the
Q DlRtrlct Itonril Parsons nnd Fort
Worth In Control of Mobs
The .Situation In St. Ionl.q.
ST. Louts , April L It Is not by nny means
certain that cither the knights on the Gould
system or those In Knst tst. Louis would re
turn to work to-day in obedience to tlio order
Issued by the oflleors of their assemblies. Tlio
chairman obeyed the Instructions of the pen-
i-ral executive board by an order to 8,000
knk'ht.s of this assembly to resume work ,
but neutralized it with an appended notice
that tlio time at which they could apply for
their positions would bo telephoned to
later. At a late hour last night he said he
bad not .sent any telegram announcing any
hour lor resumption of work and refused to
explain why. The dllllciilty of sending back
to work the Kast St. Louis knights comes
from local assemblies and not from the ex
ecutive committees , which Intended to have
ordered them to resume yesterday , but met
with a protest from the knights themselves
based on Individual grievances which
they demand shall bo adjust
ed before they seek rc-cmploymen t.
Their oxccutlvo committees liavo issued or
ders so worded as to throw the responsibility
of tlielr action to-day on their own lodges , so
unless the three committees take decided
ncllon and Issue precise orders for the re
sumption of work , Iho general executive com
mittee when It reaches there to-morrow will
find that Its order has not caused the clfect
Intended. Notwithstanding the failure of
the knights on tlio Missouri Pacific railway
to return to work , freight traflic on that road
has assumed nearly the normal condition.
This mom Ing the different freight depots
throughout tlio city presented nn animated
appearance. Transfer trucks and wagons
were heavily laden. In the railroad yards
universal activity prevailed In marked con
trast to the dullness which existed during tlio
strike. Ficlght trains are being made up
preparatory to starting and placed
In position to receive their loads without
any attemptat Interference from tliostilking
knights. The general ollices of the com
pany have assumed their normal activity ,
incident upon tlio icsiiniption of Irelght
tralllc on the system , and to-day the clerks
who were temporarily suspended dining the
strike resumed work. Governor Ogle-shy and
1 his adjutant general arrived In East St. L'liils
last evening. Soon after tlio go\ernor'.s
arrival he received a delegation of knights
who represented their t > Ido of the trouble to
him. They told the governor they were will
ing lo resume work when tlielr grievances
shall liavo been ml lusted , and deprecate all
acts of violence. They explained the stop
page of the Vandalla train after thoudjiilant
general had been told that they should be
moved without. Interference , with tlio state-
nienttliat they had notsiitliclcnt timeto notify
tlio lailroad men of the promises they had
made. They said the companies were willing
topay the wages asked of them Individually
hut refused to deal with the Knights , and
they could not understand why If the com
panies reeogiii'/.ed the Brotheihood of Loco
motive Engineers and Firemen they could
refuse to deal with them , and yesterday
morning they offered to couple npat'aln on
thu Chicago , Burlington A ; Ouincy railway
but their services were refused. All they had
done was to persuade the men not to run
their tialns and had notliitlmidated them.
Governor Oglcsby , after breakfast this
morning , proceeded to the relay denot , where
tlio largest number of strikers wcro assem
bled , and addressed to them .some well chosen
lemnrks Hearing on tlio stiikc. He cautioned
. .ai.uvyniii > .i using violence in any case and
informed them that tha Ia > "s must be obeyed
and enforced ; that if the county aiithoritles
were not equal to the task of preserving rail
road property , there was a power still stiong-
er which would bo called upon U\v its pi o-
tcctlon. (
Six freight trains , three each upon'the Mis
souri Pacific nnd Iron Mountain roads ,
started out of this city to-day , No pollco
protection was requested by tht ; 'oflleers of
nny toads and no hindrances of'any kind
were olfercd by tlio strikers nt nnv point
along tlio roads leading out of tills city.
A meeting of the sirlkers atTiirnei'shall ,
Kast St. Louis , greatly decreased tlio number
of men congregated around the iclay depot.
A Ymidalia train was made 1111 , and upon
starting from the yards the engine was ap
preached by strikers who ner.suailed the en
gineer to deseit his post. The engine was
then detached trom the train nnd run back
to the round house. At the same tlmo a
freight traliOvas made iiphvtho Indianapolis
& bt. Louis , and was about to stait out when
several stilkeis requested the engineer to
abandon his engine. This ho refused to do
and the train left without lurtherlnterfer-

to That KfTcot.
ST. LOIMS , April L Contrary to the gen-
cial opinion expressed on every hand tin
executive committee of district assembly
No. 101 would designate the hour of 10 tliip
morning as Iho tlmo when tha striking
knights should return to work , no order U
j that effect was Issued , and at ID o'clock t ho
strike still continues. None of the strikers
have applied this morning for work to tlio
Missouri Pacllic olliclals , and they say they
will not do so till orders art ) Issued by thcli
executive committee.
Despite the continuance of tlio strlko upon
this side-of the river , a considerable niimboi
of now switchmen and yardmen liavo been
„ employed to till the vacant places of the strilt'
> iV \ crs , and nil appearances this morning Indl
J > cato a speedy icsumption of freight trnlllc on
ok tlio different roiuK Switch engines aio run
nlng back nnd forward preparatory to start
Ing out freight trains. None of the switel
engineers have yet been prevailed upon to
quit work , and If the regular freight engi
neers hhall bo equally faithful In performing
their duties there is no doubt that
freight tralllc on nil the roads will
bo nt least paitlally resumed to-day.
The executive committee of district assem
bly : > * ' . ( ) , the members of which Include Mis
souri Pacllic shop men nnd mechanics , ap
pointed a committee to call upon Master .Me
chanic Battled to ascertain what men ho
would lo-cmploy. The committee has not
yet had aconi'eienee with Bartlett , and nei
ther the demands of the committee or the
plans of Bartlett auioftlclally known , A mem
ber of the committee aald this morning they
would demand that all Iho men , without ex
ception , who struck , shall bo ro-employed ,
Bullion scon and In reply to an inquiry
ns to what men ho would take back , lephed
that ho would liavo to exorcise his own judg
ment In Unit matter ; thntoionoof tho-.y who
had deployed the company's propeily would
Uo re-employed , and that the number ho
would ttiko b.iuk would bo determined by the
number of men actually needed , which was
to MI.V that competent men who had boon en
gaged during the strike would not bo dis
charged to make room for striken. A Hunt

ers have all gone back to wotk.
The following document has been Issued
for publication : . .
To the Public As'showing the sincerity of

the Knights of Labor , we respectfully state
thai pursuant io thu order Of our'-general

lirongh his snbordlnntes , to recognize any of

lould and himself have conveyed to the

ind suirerlng public , on whom Is falling all
ho weight of this great conflict. If we liavo
not been deceived enough. How much

Illro Those They l''col Inclined.
ST. Lot'ts. April L It now develops that
indcr Instructions from the executive board
of districts 101. IKl nnd 17 , n committee from
ocnl assembly 3,050 nwaited upon Master
Mechanic Bartlett last evening at the Mis-
iourl Pacific shops and tendered the services
if tlio old shop employes. Tlio men , they
mid , were icady to go to work
his morning and they desired to lind
out if they nil would bo taken back , and a
istof lifty-two names was handed Bartlett ,
vho after scanning itcnecked off seventeen
of them as the names of tlio men whom ho
voitld employ. Thu others , ho said , ho would
lot take ock. Attempts of a similar
laturo wcro made by committees
if strikers at prominent points
ill over the Gould system.
, n every Instance the executive board claim
hat the committees received the same reply
, o their offers on the part of the strikers to
ctiirn to work. Tlio railroad olllcials stated ,
t is claimed , that they did not require the.
services of all their old employes ; that
hey would not take them all back
and could use their own discretion
D selecting the men they wanted. The ratio
if men tlio roads were willing to take luck to
ho number who are on strike , llio executive
ward says , Is about the same all over the syn-
cm seventeen out of lifty , or thereabouts.
1'ho reports these committees icceived by
elcgrnph determined the executive board lo
ssuo their addiess this afternoonnnd to con-
inuo tlio strlko until the road consents
o take back all of the stiikers.
1'ho members of the board want it distinct-
y understood that tlto Knights of Labor will
lang together : that one will not leturn to
vork without the others ; and that the men
vho came out through sympathy with the
iiembers of district assembly 101 must bo
upported before the strikers , In whoso inter-
ist they went out , will consent to a settle-

; ovcral representative members of tlio
Merchants' exchange , headed by D. It.
'rands' , mayor of the city , called upon Gov-
irnor O lesby at the Martcll house in Kust
St. Louis. Speeches were made selling forth
attention to the delay to commerce , the in-
ury to the city , the lawless acts of strikers ,
file. , nnd urging upon him the necessity for
calling out the militia at once to restore
order nnd effect a resumption of Irelglit
rallley Tlio governor replied that while ho
enow that the authorities of Kast St. Louis
were unable to cope with the situation ,
Ire county of St. Clnlr was largo and popu
lous and that tlio powers of the sheriff were
very great. These had not been exhausted ,
and until they were ho could not , under the
aw , call on tlio militia for aid. He-really
regretted Hie situation of affairs but did not
leel authorized to take moro forcible measures
at present. If , however , ho should bo actu

A Conflict Between Htrikers and Citi
zens nt b'ort Worth.
FOIIT WoitTii , Texas , April 1. Fort Worth
is In the hands of a , mob. A citizens'posse
was summoned by the sheriff to assemble
this morning. At tlio Missouri Pacific yards
they met , some ! ! 00 strong , according to
orders. About -100 strikers , armed , desperate
and ready for bloodshed were on the scene.
Fifty well armed ofllcers wcro also on hand. A
freight train was made tip and the Mlssoml
Pacific engine came along to pull out the
train when there was a grand rush by tlio
strikers for tlio engine. Arms wcro pre
sented on both sides. The engine was not
molested but all the cars were uncounted , nnd
oven the nuts were taken out of the draw-
heads. Some of the knights were arrested
and the engine sent back to the round house ,
and all attempts to move the train
were abandoned. The citizens lacked organ
ization. They had no leader , while every
man In tlio ranks of the strikers was a leader.
Mayor Smith addressed the mob , but tlio
strikers cried , "liats , no moro Peter Smith
for mayor again 1" The sheriff is summon
ing the citizens to go armed to-morrow to the
Missouri Pacllic yards. The striker's place ?

The Effects of tlio Southern Freshet
Worse TImti Anticipated.
, AIn. , April 1. Specials to
he Age from river towns of Nortli Alabama
, lmw that the effects of the freshet arc worse
ban telegraphed yesterday. Gadsden reports
hat Coosa river is at its highest mark and
till rising , with alarming reports from
[ ibovo. All the railroad bridges on the branch
oad between Attalln and Oadsden nro
swept away , and a number of washouts on
be Alabama Great Southern are reported on
both sides of Attalln. The mill and lumber
ntcrest at Gcdsden sulTered immense dam-
ige. The Tennessee river is reported out of
ts banks at several points. From Tuscola
ind Warrlon advices are serlou ? , though it
s believed the worst lias passed. Many
louses on cither side of the river have been
abandoned , nnd the water Is
mining through the doors nnd
windows. Some families occupy the upper
stories of dwellings , nnd skill's and canal
> oi'ts are used for transportation. The vil-
ago of Nortliport , across the river , is almost
submerged now , and the iron bridge connect-
gg tire two placosjjis under water at botlr
mils , and fears are entertained for its safety ,
i'ho water Is a foot deep In Tuscaloosa cotton
'actory ; work had to be abandoned. Just be
fore dark the wreck of a small house passed
down the river and several persons were ob
served clinging toj the timbers. lEcscuing
parties in skill's started out in pursuit
: rom Tuscaloosa shore , nnd were rapidly
"lorno outside by the rapid current. Mnny
lersonslivlneon the lowlands below Tusca-
oosa had to be rescued from their homes In
kiir.s. No calculation can yet be made ns to
: bo amount of damage done to the farming
Interests , to the railroads nnd other high
ways. From every place with telegraph
olliccs como tlio same reports of no iralns
and no malls since .Monday night. Regular
trains on the roads centering hero have been
discontinued till further orders , and no
work is being done by the companies'em
ployes except in repairs and construction.

iticiiMOND. Va. , April 1. The James river
nt tliis point has been risinc steadilv all
day. and at 9 p. in. nearly all that portion of
the city known as tlio "Rockets" was sub
merged to n depth of eicht to ten feet.
"Water has also Inviided the streets , the old
market between Fifteenth and Eighteenth
streets , cutting off communication between
the upper ami lower part of the city except
by boats or by golns a long distance around
towaids the north. Street cars run
only as far as the St. Charles
hotel. The water is still i Ising at llio rate of
six inches per hour , and it is expected that it
will continue to do so until 4 or 5 o'clock to
morrow morning. Tlio precautions taken by
the people in the threatened districts will
keep the damauo down to com
small figures. Many poor families living In
the "Hocketts" have been driven from their
homes , r'rom present indications this flood
will surpass those of 1870 and 1617.

Under hoclc and Key.
Nr.w VOIHC , April 1. Charles 15. Walto
was arrested at 9 o'clock this morning nt the
Grand Central depot. IIo was not in the
least disconcerted , and seemed to understand
thopurpoit of the ofllccr. and oven before
the warrant was produced lie was Informed
ho was under ancst. An evening paper pub
lishes an interview with .ludgo ( illdursleevo ,
in which the judge says Waite Is the man
who wrote the letter offering to tell all he
knew about the Hrondway franchise bribery.
The Commercial Advertiser publishes a
three column Interview \yith Kx-AIderman
Walte , calling It his confession. The sub
stance of Walto's statement is that as n re
ward tor his tcrviccs in sccurlint the election
of Kirk ns picsidcnt of tlio board of alder
men In issi , ho was given the privilege
of appointing the railroad committee.
IIo appointed such men ns ho know
ho could easily "control" and
know "Jim" Richmond. They voted on the
franchise bill just as lie dlct.itcd. Tlio ox-al
derman claims ho did all of this out of pure
friendship for " .11m" Richmond , who was Ja
cob Sharps' rklit bower in the deal , and
that ho ( Wallo ) never got a dollar.
Wnito mentions n number of aldermen who
ho thinks did not secure money , but makes
no positive statement. Walto linnlly ac
knowledges his Interest In getting the
lirondway franchise bill throiit'li , and was
stimulated by a promise of the llro coiumls-
Late this afternoon detectives loft tlio city
hall with a number of warrants. It was
almost positively stated that they were for
the arrest of the franchbo aldermen of thp
board of 1881. Later District Attorney
Marline said ho concluded his interview with
Waltn ; that Walto had not bee.ii arrested ,
nnd It was true that tlio ex-alderman had
made a statement about the Uromhvay
franchise. What Its substance was
would not bo told. The otliclal could
not tell what might bo clone in
the futuio as to arresting Waite. Tlio ox-
aldcriiian's statement bad been very satis
factory to the district attorney. The onlvial
Elated ho would not go home to Harlem to
night but would remain down town , because
important matters might turn up at any
time during these troublous periods. Later
In the evening the detectives returned to
pollco headquarters having in custody ev-
President James P. Kirk , of the board of
aldermen of ISSI. Inspector liyrns .said the

A Great Monopoly Exposed.
WASHINGTON , April L [ Special Tele
gram. ] Senator Van Wyck has drawn blood
In his unrelenting war on monopolies and
In his strife for tlio Interests of the laboring
people here. IIo succeeded In his clforts to
reduce the workine hours of the street car
men without uduclnir their pay , and then ho
turned his attention to that gigantic
monopoly , the Washington Gas Light com
pany , n corporation that was a few years ago
granted a charter by congress on a toported
capital of only iuCO.CCO , but which has now a
capital of S-J,000X)0 ( ) , worth on the market
S4OX.000 ) , attcr paying enormous salaries
and unprecedented dividend ? . The com
pany has succeeded In smotheiing all propo
sitions of rival companies buforo consrc.s-i ,
and at this tlmo occupies the Held without
competition. Senator Van Wyck het out to
force tills corporation to fuinisli gas lor 51
Instead of Sl.fiO per 1,000 feet , and to show
that at least two ot the three commis
sioners of this district are largely
Interested not only In the gas com
pany , but In other corporations
operating under charters Issued by authority
of congress. In taco of the fact that the dis
trict commissioners are icoiilred to see that
the laws Imposing certain restrictions upon
these corporations are enforced , lie has
already succeeded In ono object and Is likely
to bo successful In tlio other.
3lr. Van Wyck yesterday Introduced a
resolution in the senate callingtipon the com
missioners of the District to Inform the sena
tors whether any commissioners arc inter
ested In street railways , national banks or
the gaslight company of the District. The
resolution was objected to and went over till
[ onlay. Commissioner Webb has already ac
knowledged that ho is guilty of the charge.
He says : " 1 own stock In the Corcoran Piro
Insurance company , Arlington Flro Insur
ance company , in ono of the national banks
and in the Washington Gaslight company ,
of which I am one of the directors. I have
also been for the .last twenty years the af
torney of the gas company. " Commissioner
Webb states further that Commissioner
Wheatloy owns stock in the gas company ,
These acknowledgments , published here
this morning , created almost a sensation ,
and when Mr. Van Wyck called up Ids reso
lution In the senate'shortly ' alter noon , ho
liact everything Ills own way and It was
passed with a whirl. Mr. Vnn Wyck said tlio
only law givers for Washington city were the
two houses of congrcs ? , . When questions
arose between caplfalvnnd1abor here , nnritho
commissioners of the District were required
to do anything in referv matters In dispute - *
puto , it was proper for'congress to know the
personal relations .of those personal Indi
viduals to the corp"qratidns. Those commis
sioners had declared that only one gas light
company should liavo the right to supply
gas to this city. Dlscussina the rules of
this company , Mr. Vnn Wyok referred
to the requirement of a largo deposit in ad
vance from citizens using gas , and Hie enact
ment by the gas company itself of a special
Hen law in Its own favor. Who gave the
company tlio power to say that If an out
going tenant did not pay his bill the incom
ing tenant would get no K.IS ? Congress had
given millions of acres of land to
the various Pacific railroads In or
der to secure competition , only to find
that competition "did not compote. "
But hero wcro the commissioners of the
Districtof Columbia publicly andspecilicnlly
declaring that there should bo no competition
in gas , and giving excuses as to why there
should bo no competition. The gas company ,
on an Investment of S500.000 , had now a cap
ital of $2,000,000 , worth S4.000.003 in the
market , and declared dividends of from 40 to
CO per cent , paying in ono year Sl.UOO.OOO In
dlvldcds. The commissioners knew tlieso
Mr. Van Wyck animadverted Ion the poor
qualltyof gas supplied. Ho albo refeiredto
tlio cheapness of gas in Baltimore compared
to Washington.
Mr , Gorham of Maryland said there were
several competing companies there and it
was admitted tnat the prices charged as tlio
result of competition would ruin any com
pany. The consequence was that there was
yearly amalgamations of such companies.
Mr. Van Wvck said that only showed that
congiess and tlio legislatures were In tiio
hands of corporations which bid defiance to
all law. It was the knowledge of this fact
that was spreading the universal discontent
of labor. The moral sense of the civilized
woild having got rid ot chattel shivery , was
now faced by these corporations with a wide

our corporate industrial system was. Sena

Some surprise was expressed by Xebraskans
hero when the nomination of Kgbert I ! . Wat
son to bo postmaster ut Kearney was sent to
the senate this afternoon , as it was well
known that J. 0. Morgan was nominated for
the same place on January 11 last. Later It
was ascertained that the nomination of Mor
gan has been withdrawn'on account of ob
jections made to him by Nebraska democrats.
The nomination of Watson Is spoken of as
a very gocd one.
The enormous waste o'f valuable raw ma
terial , wherever flax nnd hemp arc grown for
the seed , has at last been , brought to the at
tention of congress by parties Interested in
the manufacture of textile fabrics. A dele
gation of eastern men Interested In these
goods Is now here to try to Induce congress ,
through the commissioner of agriculture , to
provide some means to stimulate the manu
facture of Improvediiiachliiery for the .separ
ation of the liber hi order that the straw
which Is now wasted may be saved to com

the states of Iowa , Nebraska nnd Minnesota
seta , nnd the territory of Dakota , thousands
upon thousands of tons of llax straw nro
annually wasted which might bo saved to
the material Increase of th'o Incomes of the
farmers of these states , if the department of
agriculture would attempt to btimulato the
production of better machinery.

Logan's Army l tl ! Discussion Creates
Homo Itittcr Feeling.
WASIIINT.TO.V , Apill I. ( Special. ] The
de'jato on tlio bill by Senator Logan to in-
creasn the elllciency of the army , by Increas
ing It a few thousand in number of men , lias
licen niarued by more feclimr and Interest
than Is usually shown in the senate. Tlio
statements reiterated by Senator Plumb of
Kansas , that Mr. Logan wanted a larger
army to keep down labor riots , brought out
some feeling on both sides. The friends of
Mr. 1'himb , who is a strong Blaine man , liavo
tried to make it appear that Mr. Blalno was
jclilnd tlio Kansnn , and some of the Illinois
talesman's friends liavo mentioned that it
was a Blaine suggestion.
None of such talk lias any effect upon those
who know the fncts. Mr. Plumb is known
to be bitterly opposed to permitting the
soldiery to Interfere with Intcinnl disturb
ances , like those growing out of labor
tioublos. It Is hi nted , however , that Mr. Lo-
; au has been urged to tlio step ho has been
taking by men in Chicago nnd other huge
cities , who fear the results of riots In the fu
ture. The question opens up the whole mat
ter of calling United States troops to sup
press local troubles. Many contend that the
cities and states should nlono suppress labor
und other riots.

The committee on library reported favora

Abraham Lincoln.
Mr. Cullom said he had the honor of intro
ducing this bill. It appropriates $ 00.030 for
the erection ot a monument at Washington
to tlio memory of Lincoln. Time , said Mr.
Cullom , would not dim or lessen the glory
that clustered around the name of Lincoln.
His great deeds and nobility of character
would show only more plainly as time passed.
Ills name and fame would exist for nil time
among all the nations of the earth. Mr. Cul-
lorn was proud to say that Lincoln had been
his personal friend. He was a man tliatcould
not diverge from Ids duty. Generous and

"with charity for all , with malice towards
none" 'twas he who had said : "i have not

Mr. Platt consented that the Washington

President Adams K.vnlalns the Finan
cial Condition ol'tho Company.
BOSTON , April L [ SpecinlToIegrnm. ] At
the annual meeting of tlio Union Pacllic
stockholders yesterday , President Adams
made a short review of the progress made by
Hie road during the year. The most Interest
ing portion ol his letnarks was In answer to
two questions propounded almost simultan
eously by Hastings , that U the. surplus last
year was S2,5.,100.55 , when would the stock
holders receive any dividend ? To tills , sev
eral pieseiit.criedout : "Vcs.that's the point. "
riie other was a request for information as
to the existing relationship between the com
pany and the government. Mr. Adams , in
icply to tlio question , said : "Slnco I
took charge of the affairs of tills company , a
shoit time ago , my solo object has been to
place It uiion a sound linancial and business
baslsand lo do was necessary to devote
the entire surplus to the liquidation of just
claims against the company. The transconti
nental war , which 1 have tried to prevent ,
nnd the growing compctiton from rival roads
have , you know , badly reduced our receipts
from through busness ! by taking from us a
largo share of the traffic once entirely our
own , but the bulldini ; m > of tlio west and the
necessities of the day hjvo so increased our
local business that If air cquitabm under
standing can bo made with the government ,
I hope to be able lo talk with the stockhold
ers In reference to the subject of dividends
within a comparatively short time. " This
remark was greeted with applause. In
speaking of the relations of the government
and the company the president said that the
present policy of the government was dis
graceful , disreputable and embarrassing. Ho
said that thoTliurman act had not worked as
Us franicr intended ; In fact , Thiiniian had
acknowledged to him that as long as It re
mained In effect It would bo n continual
drawback and an embarrassment to the
company. The bill now being prepared by
the senate , which the public believed to bo
one of the company's preparation , neither
ho nor any ofliccr or representative
of the company had been allowed to see , and
if ho only knew what IU contents were lie
would be only too pleased , as lie could then
decldo on some dullnlto policy for the future ,
wldlo at present his ignorance caused him ( o
ho all at sea. What tlio company wanted
was to bo treated exactly as any other credit
ors of the government , and bo permitted lo
discharge its obligations by the ordinary sys
tem of annual payments , and if they settle
iion ) ) the tlmo to ha allowed , the company
could manage its own atfalrs , like any other
Tlio Warring Presidents Meet.
Niw YOIIK. April L There was a meet
ing of the presidents of the Southern Pacllie ,
Union Pacllic , nnd Atclilson , Topckn &
Santa Fo railroads at the residence of C. P.
Huntington to-day. Hiiutlngtoii , when
asked about It , said : "Yes , Strougand Adams
wcio both here , but tlio nll'alr could hardly bo
called a meeting because nothing -positively
was done about a settlement of existing dif
ficulties. We talked ov.'r tlio situation in a
friendly way , and several points which had
not been well understood were explained. 1
do not like to say that wn came to an under
standing or that a sediment Is sure , because
many things might occur which would upset
our plans , but 1 think It Is safe to say
there will probably be a settle
ment within thirty days. Mo other
meeting has been arranged for , but corre
spondence will bo continued as It has been
for several weeks pasl. 1 thought , wo wcro
near a settlement when wo had the last meet
ing , but ceituin things came into tlio discus
sion which pieventcd it. Our ships carry
about 5,000 Ions weight , and a measure which
means 4.0CO tons dead weight , nnd peilmps
ono-fomth of this fielght was tor through
t'oints ' , the balance being for Louisiana and
Texas points , where rates were not cut , so
we liavo made money on every vessel which
has gone out. Of course wo have lost
n gieat deal in through business , but I would
feel that my titty years of existence was
wasted if wo could not cniry on the light on
ono ot our lines for twelve months. Any
way , before n settlement can bo made our
traillo managers will liavo to .settle details. 1
think that Strong and Adams have icturned
to Boston. "
At tlio unices on Broadway nothing was
known positively about the meeting of the
ine.-lilents. Hates are not being guaiantced
beyond Satiii'day , however , and there is a disposition -
position to do as little business as possible.

On July 4 , 1SS4 , a celebration was lmt"u ' " '
in Auburn and a vast number of "people had
como to town to spend the day in amusement
and fun. Fully 10,003 people were in attend- '

When lie was brought back to town many
