1'relght tralllc on the Lake Shore road Is
still blocked , but the trouble has not thus far
extended to the othei roads. It was icported
thlsafteinoon hy the Lake Shore ofllclals
that no conference will bo held to-day with
the switchmen with alevv of settling the
strike. GovernorOglesby Is still icmalnlng
in the city , hoping for a peaceable olutlon
of the trouble as outlined In his speech to the
Hlrll.ers. He appichcnds no Immediate out
break of violence , and expects to leturn to
Springfield to-moriow. The company has
Imported thlity-tlve oi foity switchmen from
Bntlalo , Toledo and other points east , who
uiilvcdln the city early this moinlng and
mo Intended to tike the place of strikers.
The assistance and protection of armsd dep
uty sheriffs and the police will be called Into
icqulsltlon It necessaiy. The stilkors are
claiming that the tine situation ot nllairs has
not been laid befoio the govci nor , and they
desliotohave him undeistand thelrcrtov-
nnces fully.
At the conference to day they assci ted tliat
tlm swltihmen's union has nothing whatever
todo with the sti Ike , as it is not a union
alfalr. Men who belong to no oiganhatlon
nro striking wllh the ic-st , and the unionists
have no objection \\oiklng alongside ol
them. 'Jhe whole tumble , they say , Is based
on tno objections of the men to working with
the scabs who took the places of union men
dining tlm big sti Ikes of ' 77 and ' 81. These
B.abs they want icniovrd to some other de
partment wheio they will notcomo in con
tact with them , They do not demand the
discharge of the scabs.
'I ho outcome of the trouble is regarded vvitli
tlm greatest apprehension by the business
men of town. The Times assails Govemor
Oglesoy for his tempoil/ings , and tugcs the
calling out ot the militia without tinihei
delay. _

The SoutliwcBtoru Labor Troubles.
\\A iii.Nn ox' , April 21. 'ihc second ses
sion of the house committee to Investigate
the labor tioublcs In the .southwest was held
to-day. Mr. McDowell , of the Knights of
Laboi , was the first witness called , llo re
viewed the featines of the several Intel-
views between Powderly and Gould , In
cluding the discussion on the subject of ar-
bltiatlon , at consldeiablo length , hut nothing
was ii-vealed which has not already been
made public. Then , afteran examination as
to vvlicthei the men on sti Ike would have
oboed the older to lebtuno worklflloxlo
had compiled with that sent him by Gould ,
to which witness answered In the altirma-
tive. Witness at the lequcbt of Mr. Cniln ,
enteied into a long statement relating to
the position of the lahoi side of the qestlon.
Ho said It was the thooiy that the exactions
made upon the men weio caused by tlm at
tempts of the tallioad companies to pay
dividends on watcied slock , t'uitheron In
the examination , witness declined It was his
belief that lloxlo was responsible foi the con
tinuance of the bttlke. Witness stated that
he did not believe that there was a lalhoad In
America which had been pu-bbcd to half Us
carrj ing capacity. He favoied the abandon
ment of competing lines and the concentia-
tlon of all business on others. This would
reduce the numbei of cmplojcs one-half pci-
haps , but they would Immediately lind em-
plojmentin othei walks ot lite wheio they
would not bo living by a tax on the country.
Powdeily was then icc.illed and give tlm
hibtoiy ol tlio oiigln of the Knights of
Labor. "The organization was Intended , " ho
said , "to take In not only the man who
worked at the bench or mine , but any man
who tolled by hand 01 bialn in any honest
occtipition. Weleltoutoneoi two honest
occupations law ) eis and bankers because
wo telt they were fully capable of taking
c.uool themselves. "
Clialiman How about pieachcis ?
Powdeily Once in a while wo pet one of

Chaiiman Aio women mcmbeis of the

Clialiman When vvero women ad

Powdeily In 1831. Wo claim that if
women pcitoim equal % voik , they should
icceivc equal pay. We have one assembly ot
women with a mcmbcibhlp ot 1..500 , and Irom

Powueil ) Vespiinclpaliy. ; I havowork-

McDowell , upon being recalled , and asked
as to his connection with the Knights ot
Laboi , said ho had been connected vvitli the
oiganl/atloii about eight > eais ; that he was
a m ichlnlbt by tiade ; and that to dav bo was
at thu head ot one ot the Uigesl machine
works In the countiy.
Clialiman 'llicic is nollilngjon know of
in tlio organisation which is inconsistent
with tlm obedience ol law and with the ad-
mlnlstiatlon of the goNcinmcnt ?
McDowell Nothing whatever. On the
othci hand it is a peilect biippoitei ot law in
Buchanan Vonr observation Is that the
falrci tii ated , bettei paid and the moio con
tented the Aineiiein woikiiigman is , the bet

McDowell That's exactly Irne.
