KANSAS CITT , March 0. [ Special Tele
gram to the Bnn.J It sceins to bo the inten
tion of the brotherhood to continuo its pres
ent mode of wnrfard on the Chicago , Bur-
Imgton & Quincy , and rend shows
moro ovldcnco of victory than at present it
is not probable that any moro radical meas
ures will bo resorted to. The local commit
tee men state that the conference that is in
session at Chicago was called , not for the
purpose of agreeing upou any measures to
force the strike , but for the purpose of bring- Chief Arthur the local heads of the or
ganization that ho might get a better grasp
on the runs of the brotherhood to enable him
to act moro promptly and oftltiently in case
of an emergency. The men declare that the
rood is gaining no ground , and that
the outlook tor the cause is brighter than
over. They claim that it would be impossi
ble for the road to run all Its trains according
to schedule even if it had u sufficient number
of men to do so , as the danger of filling the
road with trains all run by new mon would
bo too great for the road to incur. The rail
road officials continuo to assert that the road
is rapidly getting back into shape and that ,
as far as the Burlington system is concerned ,
the strike is over. The trains continuo to
arrive and depart with about the same regu
larity as during the past few days. No. 6 on
the Kansas City , St. Joseph & Council Bluff a *
and No. 15 on the Hannibal were marked
"abandoned" and most of the other passenger
trains were from twenty minutes to two
hours lato. A freight was sent
out over the Kansas City ft St. Joseph

LINCOLN , March 3. To the Editor of , th

Though not the largest strike , T consfder I
the most Important that ovcrocourred in thl
country. Should tb < Chicago , Burlington .
Qslflcy bo , successful in froejlng _ out th
brQUvorhoodmen I consider ( t a de"ath bloi
to all labor organizations in this countr ;
It should bo remembered that foreign. corp <
rations are tha most oppressive monopolk
In this country. They have no sympathy fc
or Interest in their employes and would r
duce them to serfdom if they could profit , t
It. I have , liowovcr. tpo much confluence in
the honesty nnd Justice of the business men
Budr the people gcrwmlljr to bollovo that they
will over accomplUt ? thfllr purpose.
Should the Chicago- Burlington Quincy
become masters of tya ' .pltuation , there will
soon bo n reduction of , wages where foreign
capital predominates. ' 'A reduction of wages
means a decrease1 of ' business and less
profits on small'-1 ; investments. Every
business man iMtbtflA do all in his
power to prevcrtti" such a result.
I am Informed ttmt Vfcctlbn hands only got
11.10 per day nmV wffrs get only U.2. > per

wages 1 The lattur Class are sometimes

tra tlmo. The Intb' Ohnrles OfConor said "a
roriraration is n thfhp Vlthout a soul to snvo ,
a hell to shun or a heaven to gain. " The con-
duet of the Chicago , Burlington < k Quincy
would confirm O'Conor's definition of the
word corporation. I have too much confi
dence in tlio honesty , charity nnd executive
ability of T. V. Powdcrly and the willingness
of Mr. Arthur to repair the wrongs of the
Reading trouble , as far as In him lies , to al
low the enemy to divide the ranks of the la-
.boring men. Unltod wo succeed , divided wo
sleep the sleep from which no labor organi

Give mo a thorough labor organization and I

Startling Rumors.
( Crtpj/rtB > > t HS8 ITJflmw rtordoti Ucnnett. }
LONDOX' , March 0. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special .to. . the BKB. ] A startling
minor reached the Herald bureau from a
highly Important-authority. It Involves the
succession to the Immense possessions of the
Rutland family , Its hbnors and titles. It is
oqly within , thq-p st few hours that what
was whispered yesterday has become the
rumors which rapidly lead Into history. The
rutfior riVy t extends. to only the friends of
1110 ; " diikd" wild , now 'lies unburlcd. What
, rcacWs mo is to the following effect , which
reminds mo of the plot of A novel or drama :
The dukp is known many years ago to have
fo'hn&I'ft"1 aeeV attachment for a lady
under circumstances which gave rise
to , a general impression that some form of
mrfaB cerbmdny. 'had taken placo. The
ladjlhad lived'In'great ' seclusion , nnd after a
time , was1at last forgotten by those who hod
frequently , speculated on her relation to the
duko. SinceVlhnt'period tlio duke Is known
tlttYcvbeerj'-reMccnt on the subject. Ono
rfac { w ? frequently-remarked by his intimate
f ii ; u\lf \ | that , ho. was never known to acknowl
edge In any shape Henry Manners as the
presumptive "Tiolr , although never denying
the apparent holrshjp of his brother , Lord
John Manners * ! X i
iVerious causes were assigned for this , but
the ono .ventured to address the duke any
iiuitilry on so delicate a suojcct. It was ,
howcvor , universally felt to bo strange that
( no next holr Vn" the ordinary course of events
for his father had reached the scriptural
* ) lan of llfo should receive no recognition
Direct or fnflircct , from the duke , particularly
'as Henry Manners now by courtesy , if the
prcs.umptlvoheirthe Marquis of Granby was
'of'lrreproachnblfecharacter and had long
fllt J a position of trust nnd responsibility ns
'flrat ! private secretary to theprimo minister.
Bui an explanation of the mystery is now
given by the rumor nnd if it is true it is
amply sufflclcrit to account for the duko's re
serve toward Henry Manners. It Isjsalrt the
rightful heir to the Dukedom is forthcoming
in the person of the oldest son
of the late duke by his sccrot
marriage with the lady with whom many
years ago ho fell in love. His existence , it is
authoritatively said , has long boon suspected
byLord John Manners , and now communi
cations have been made which leave no
doubt that the claimants will shortly appear
on the scone. I am told , however , that a
great doubt exists in the minds of thu Man
ners family as to the validity of the
marriage in question , and that their
rights will certainly not bo aband
oned without a struggle. It may
o the question will have to bo decided
by a law suit before the house of lords or
that a private settlement may bo arrived at.
In any couo the duko's death has caused n
cloud to arise over the prospects of these
whom the world has long known ns the late
duke's exclusive kinsfolk.
After the funeral on Friday there will not
bo much probability of secrecy for
either a now writ must bo moved
for" to fill up the scat left
vacant , if thcro bo a true transfer of Lord
John Manners to the peers , or else nny lolay
in moving for the writ would indicate that
the chilmcnt was about to take steps to make
good his pretensions and and that the posi
tions of Lord John Manners nnd his son
Henry wcro doubtful.

Lovuox , March. 0. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to the BEE. ] In the mem
bers' lobby to-night thcro were many eager
inquiries and some curious reports were
afloat. Who is to have Lord John Manners'
office or will anybody have it. Strange sto
ries are in the air. Some of them are truo.
Lord John will not yet pass to the upper
house at any rate. The survivor of the young
England party , the life-long friend of Dis
raeli will not leave us Just yet.
Then there is much gossip over Lord Ran
dolph's probable ilnoon Thursday night. - Is
he goinc to attack the government over its
war estimates or fire a broadside
into 'the system of which they
are the product. In either case
ho cannot fail to make some very damaging
disclosures concerning the extravagance and
folly of the English army administration nnd
if tho.govcrnmcnt defends the system they
will bo seriously damaged. Then It is kno , - \ n
that a great scandal in connection with con
tracts will bo brought before the house by
ttyOj or three Independent members. Alto
gether , Thursday nigh * will bo full of inter

edge of that fact would alone have caused to-
nighVp proceedings to have fallen very flat ,

Ho referred to himself an a Scotch member ,

unwilling to limit the possibilities of his own

thing Judiciously open for another uharctor-
Istlc bit which fell from him. Ho said ho
had tried to got the Scotch business bettor
looked after. "In that work I have exerted
such ingenuity as nature or practice may
have given mo. " This modest allusion to
his parliamentary ingenuity , which has never
been equalled , produced a burst of laughter
and cheers. After that furtho
speech was in vain. The leader ofr
both sides went away to dinner and the
speaker retired to scramble down the mutton

Produced in tbo Glorious Climate of
Iloro is a story from the Albina ( Oro-
gou ) Courier , bcstdo which all accounts
of big steers , pumpkins , etc. , at county
fairs palo into insignificance. The story
under hood ' 'A '
appears the Big Spud ,
ana reads as follows : "Thoro Is a big
potato on exhibition down at the Conti
nental hotel bar that is perhaps the
most immense vegetable grown in this
country or any other. It was raised by
A. Lapelle , ton miles north of this city ,
and measures 11 feet in length- feet
in dinmotor , mid 9J foot in circumference -
once , and when weighed on a pair of
hay scales was found to tip the beam at
8H8 pounds. When Mr. Lapollo was
digging his potatoes last fall and came
across this monster ho thoughtat first ho
had struck the root of the giant yamaho-
tiisa tree of the eucalyptus ex
tinct. Further investigation , however ,
proved it to bo a potato. It took three
mon and a span of horses a day anil a
half to dig this potato out of the ground.
It was then swung upon a big logging
truck and brought to town. Though it
may HOOIII curious , this potato is as tine
grained as its smaller brethren , and
when sliced up and fried cannot bo dis-
tinguibhcd from an ordinary potato of
good quality. The above figures may
not bo exact , as the editor lost his notes
on tbo subject , and is compelled to rely
on memory , but they are near enough
for all practical purpo > es , and oiler a
weighty argument in favoi-of the pro
ductiveness of our Pucitto boil. "

something to turn to got them out of the rut.

May corn opened at MJj'c , which was
lower than last night's close , under the in
fluence of larger receipts than was expected ,
but the bearish-minded scalpers were
disappointed again. There were "plenty
of buying orders and when the price began
to advance early , the sellers were the sharp
est bidders and there was a steady advance
to 5-lc , when the balance turned the olhor
way and with more sellers than buyers , a
down turn began , which , with lively fluctu
ations in the meantime , finally brought May
delivery to Klps't SS c , but there wore not
more than one or two transactions nt that

and outsldo speculators appear to have taken
hold of corn. The short Interest is largely
of the kind that runs to cover and presently
tries it again , nt n higher level , and is no
therefore nt any tlmo olmluntcd from the
market. The same cause which brought
about it bulge early in the winter , namely
short crops Is talked about us an inducement
to present good buying , but probably
n stronger Influence Is the railroads strike ,
and the belief that It will spread and out off
receipts in this market. The present. re
ceipts , however , are not small , and oven the
Burlington road brought in some corn to-day.
