The situation In regatel to the Lake. Sinn o
switchmen Is a erlous one , and It looks to
night as It the matter could not bo settled
\v Ithout the calling out of the troops. Town
of Lake oniclals have demonstrated tlielr
Inability or unwillingness to afford the rail
way piopcr piolcctlon. and the strikers , fe > r
the past two davs hav e been complete urns-
teisol the situation. Not a cat of freight lias
been semi out or icceived. This morning the
Mi Ike'ia , the curiosity seekers anel the sympa-
thl/ei.s vveic early distributed In groups about
the Lake Shore tiacks at Twelfth street ,
Fonr.h and Pinty-thitel sticets. This morn
ing the strikers' safety committee , looking
after the piotoctinn e > f the company's pioper-
ty , weio alsei scattered along the line. The
sun was scatccly tip bufoio the men began to
ciovvel foith liom box cats anel shanties llko
cat.s In seaich of their moining meal. They
had been on watch all night. Some
time during the nicht a "scab"
was hanged In elllgy at the coiner of Itoot
street at the tiacks. It boio this inscription :
"The icmalns ot a scab. " The men came up
nt daylight and viewed It , uttering cries ol
derision. It wasa very lagged , dirty elllgy ,
and was suspended fiom n convenient lamp-
jiot. It diew forth many gibes and jests.
Tneio was a futile attempt to pull together a
train e > f refiicerator cais at 8,0 : o'clock. En
gineer Wcavci pulled engine r & out of the
lonnd tionsoat Hoot street , and twenty armed
police sat on the tender or walked on either
f > ldoacuanK The engine slowly steamed
up loFeuly-filth stieet , whcie a number of
ictilgeintor cais and a caboose lay Hide-
tracked. The stilkets and their sympa-
thl/eis gatheied about the sccno about a
thousand stiong , anel sevcial of the men
icmonstiateet with Engineer Weaver , but
without avail. Eluding it Impossible to iu-
llucnce the engineer , the stilkcis lan to the
cars and quickly pulled the keys out of the
eltavv-bais to disable them so that no train
could be iiiaile up. The caboose sat on tlio
opposlio siele of the track. It was un
coupled anel pushed away by Itself.
While thostilkeis were working llko Her
cules with theirslioiildeis against the caboose
pushing it away , a diminutivebiakeman
who was iccognl/ed as "a scab" appeared In
the door and vehemently denounced the
ciovvel. A htalwait striker stepped up anel
told him if he did not go about his business
bo would bo : oiuhly dealt will * The little
brakimiun icfused to move on. The stalvvait
icllovv hit him a gentle tap and leLt him un
conscious em the hack. Later ho was
revived with water anel cairied away.
In the midst of thu trouble Conductor
Geycr , who was to take charge of the train ,
appealed at the window of the caboose and
blandished a pistol In the lace of the crowd ,
tlncatcnlng vengeance on any wlio attempted
to molest him on tlio company's piopeity.
Alter waiting lor a few minutes it was de
cided to inn tlio enslno back to the round
house anel make no tinthcr attempts to move
trains.'iTlie stilkeisgieeted this , which they
call a-victory , with lusty shouts and cheer * .

WASHINGTON , April 20. Giand Master
Woihman Powderly and Ilajcsand Tinner ,
of tlm Knights of Labor , airlved in Washing
ton tills morning and were at the capital at
an early hour. Povvdeily rcpahed at once to
Ihc room of the nppiopriatlon committee ,
where ho had a short chat with Randall.
The special committee of the house to In-
qulie Into the labor tioublcs of the southwest ,
leld Us first public session to-day. Among
those piesent In attendance were Mr. Pow-
dcily and Haves , Turner and McDowell , of
Iho executive committee ot the Knights of
Labor. Major Svvaync appealed as counsel
for the lallwajs. Powdorly was the Hist wit
ness. Ho repented at lengtli the stoiy and
ilstoiy ot the recent tioubles In the south
west , but piesented no new featuies In the
"While I was In the west , " said Powderly ,
" 1 beaid from the men of little abuses which
I do not think the manager of the Missouri
I'aclllc load knows anything about. Along
; bo lion Mountain rallioad they have a sys-
: em of taking twenty-live cents a month irom
the wages of a man who receives a dollar a
day , and fitly cents fiom the wages ot a man
who iccclvcs S3 a day , and so on In proportion
tion , for what they call a hospital fund.
Then the men claim that as soon as tltov arc
taken sick they aie dlscliaigcd and are do-
nled the right of entering the hospital. Then
there aio Instances which can bo proved
where the men have made contracts to buy
land of the company on regular yeaily In
stallments , nnu vvheic , having paid all but
the last installment , they weio dischaiged
horn employment. In that section ol coun
tiy it is ( litleient trom the cast. Men cannot
go Into tlio next town anil get situations , and
the consequence has been , In at least one
pat tlcular , that a man have been obliged to
remain idle so long that he lost his piopcity.
Tlio men claim that theio were buveral In
stances ot that kind. "
Cliaiinian Can yon have witnesses called
betoie the committee to show these lacts.
Powdeily Undoubtedly , it I amcoiiectly
Buchanan In your inquiries you have
found that these causes ot discontent existed ?
Cliaiimau Will you state the puiposo of
the oigani/ation of thu Knights ot Libor.
Whether Its pmposes aio the protection of
the inteiests ot labor , and whether it Is
peaceful in all its actions ?
Powdeily The aim ot tlio organi/ation of
the Knights ot Labor Is to beneiit the laborer
and to secmo a better feeling between him
ami Ills ouiplojer. All our methods are
peaceful. We never counsel aii.vtliing ot a
violent natnie. Mcmbeis ot thu oigani/ation
may , once in awhile , commit an act ot vie
lence. Wo can't help this. It is a matter
beyond our control , because when the ir.cn
leel that they have endiued wiong theio Is
no law which can piopeily lostialn them.
Chairman Do 1 understand that the
Knights ot Labor , as an oigani/ation , do piO-
tcct labor , not only on the laihoads but also
in mines and factories' *
Powderly We attempt to do that. Our
association is Intended to bo a national one.
We aim at having oiu membeib study the
conditions by which they aie Miironnded
not only their own conditions , but also those
for whom they woik.
Chaitman In order to pave the way lor In
telligent action ?
Powdeily Yes , sir. I have claimed that it
is no more than right foi both to meet on
equal terms and have a thoioiigh undei.stand-
ing of the wants ot each oilier. And itbcenib
to mo that until they do that they cannot
piopeily lixtii ) their dllleiences.
Chilli mm 1 do not ask yon to divulge any
ot thesccietsof the Knights of Labor , but
yon have stated that the obccts of the socie
ty are to motecl the labor of the countiy so
lur as possible against exactions or incorpoi-
a leel capital.
Poweleily To protect not only the labor of
the countiy , but lo piotcct tlio uianufactuieis
as well. Woelesiie that the inaiiulactuieib
shall be in hiich a condition that they will bo
able to pay good wages. We hav ono euiai rel
with legitimate enterprise. If you discover
tliat membeisof the Knights of Labor alonir
the ralheiads have violated tlm. law ol the
land , or its own laws and tlio committee
will discover that fact we will bo as icaely
lo assist In punishing them as we aio In up
holding then rights. When 1 said 1 was will
ing to expose eveiything in connection w itli
tlio oigunlzation of those who manage the
railioaels , or if onomaii in paiticular , would
do the same thing. 1 spoke lulily and truth
fully. 1 believe that the law of the land Is
higher than any oiganUation. and when men
violate the law of tno land cither ns Knfulits
ot Labor , or as private cltl/ons , or as mem
bers of coipoiatioiib they sliouhl bo punished
for It , unet that his connection with an oigan-
l/atlon should bo no shield for him. And I
have thought , on tlio other hand , that a man
who violates the law , and is woith millions
ot dollars , should sutler the same as a poor
man. 1 have made that .statement , and the
people have seen tit to see In it an Invitation
toanaichy. It that is anaichy , in thu name
ot ( Sod , what Is law ?
Bums Tlio country generally , and I
doubt not properly , seems to place a good
deal of conliucnco In your Integrity , jour
intelligence and your patriotism. Being
disposed to consider the question practically ,
1 ask if you have given thought to Iho < im- _
tlmi lor legislative lemedy lor the evils to
which you have allueled ?
Povveleily I have never worked it up
piopeily , I have thought it over , but hav o
not lollovvod it to Its conclusion ,
limns Will yon bo able , during the sit
tings of this committee , to gho us your
views on the eiuestlon of the lemoily for the
Powderly How long is the committee
likely to sit ?
Chairman About two months.
Powelerly I think 1 will bo able , because
In that time yon will have an official dcclaia-
tion fiom the chlet men of om oiganUation
on that point.
Bums 1 would suggest further , that It
may bo well to cjiislder what , In jour judg
ment. can be constitutionally done , and what
might be done1 , and what ought lo bedone by
amendments to tlio constitution.
Poiv elerly I shall elo s.o , and I thank you
for the suggestion.
At this point the committee adjourned.

Cook moved out ho lias no opposition. Ho
thinks the opuosllion have no other man
competent for the position , and that ho will
liavo a "walk away. " The Dostolllco ques
tion , however , troubles him , and lie dreads to
meet some of his betiayed suppoitcis , whom
ho paid off with biokcn piomises , and their
name is legion. There are soveial appoint
ments yet to make , anel be will allnw the 10-
pnbllcan incumbents to hold on till utjor the
election , If they will keep quiet and not get
him into tiouble. The Giiiincll ol-
lice has beitliereel him no lit/lc / , and
he has permitted tlio republican theio
to hold over since last December , when
his commission o\piied , latlier than face the
stoim lie will bring about his cais by the
selection of ono ot the number ho lias piom-
ised the ofllce. The Newton appointment is
another ono in which ho tears lo make a
choice , though a man named FJovveis Is
booked as the lucky one. Other oflices not
jet tilled are thorns in the flesh to him and
loses him much sleep , and all because ho lias

as lie has oflices to fill them with.

ney was not only bent on bieaking down the
American naval const. ! uctois , llko John
Itoach , but that ho was anxious to ignore

ho had contracted with a Uiltlsh Hun for
piling the lion plates with which the new
American men-of-war now undeigolng con

ed that English naval deslgncis hnvo been
