hlKh otliolals say thut they are receiving 8T*at
numbers of ar-i'ii< atl*.ns for work. Th-' sink?

of th.se mm was the question that bothered the
strikers. They decided t.> try moral suasion and
Kieeni.a* ks. They tried lt and found it
to be su.rossf.il. in thifl way three en
gin-ers who took the nla.es of strikers at
Perth Atnboy wore Induced to quit work
yes-erday. A passenger on an incoming train

The movement of freight was extremely Blow
j-esterdiy. The fust freight train left the yards
at 10:30 a. m. There waa a "Qregory man" on
each car. and there w re two in ihe engine.
T_eir presence se,.ms to be unnecessary, for
the strikers wisely keep away from the yards.
Their headquarters are fully a mile from
the yards. Five freight trains 1* ft the city in
ihe course of the day and evening.
In the Lehigh freight -Ace it was announced
that hereafter all Lehigh trains would enter the
yards over the singl-* track owned hy the Le?
high road, inst.-a.'. of over the Jersey Cen?
tral's tracks. The Lehigh road has one track

Philadelphia, Nov. M.?As mewed In this city
both parties to the I.?hi|j'n Valley strike have made
gains In the last twenty-four hours, hut those of
the company have been the granter. 'lhere ls bu',
little chance in the psaeeugor service, hut the
blockade of freight has hon partially broken, an i
loaded trains are being g_0TS_ much mora freely.
This ls mainly clue to the lHri;e number Of recruits
B*cured hy the company to lill the st rik-!-' pisces,
and. while not a few of the new naen have I.n
Induced to Join their lot with those who sara gone
out. lt ls, nevertheless, a fact that the (B-SBpsny
has made a considerable addition to its working

viewed from the company's standpoint, is outlined
in a dispatch received at th.- B*a*ral othes in

It ia thought hire that the storm centre of the
atrike has shifted to Sayre. All depends upon the
ability of the leaders of the strike to keep lu
check such turbulent spirits arr.onx their follow?

B.000 troops could be thrown into Sayre within
two hours.
The leaders of the Grievance Committee called

?* hkmm'.kaiii.i: i:r.\i!.f>v PBOP IBO.
"On page 8. after briefly adverting to some of
the obnoxious legislation of Kalakaua's reign,
while Ignoring thc main quantics! then at Issue,
he proceeds as follows: "None of the legislation
complained of would have been considered a
cause of revolution |n any one of the United
States, but Would have hedi used 111 the elec?
tions to expel the authors from power. The al?
leged corrupt action ,(f Um King mold have
been avoided by more careful legislation ami
would isl.) ha\e bean U complete remedy for the
future.' My reply to this ls thal the chief flin.
culty lay in the autocratic p..wer of the King,
who had the appointment of the Upper House
and packed the Lower House filth servile ofIlc*>
holder.", while he also held an unconditional
veto on all the legislation. At the same time,
naturalization, besides being conditioned on live
years' residence and the possession of real
estate, was entirely at the discretion of the King,
who refused it to those foreigners who were op
jxiseil to his corrupt schemes.
"Colonel Ettount speaks of the 'alleged* cor?
rupt action of the King. This was proved by
his own witnesses in a trial held before the
Supreme Court. Information of which I furnlshel
to Colonel Blount. The remedy suggested by
Colonel Blount had been tried for several suc?
cessive sessions in vain. All constitutional
means of redress had fulled. Tn Kr.fl, the good
people of Bag Fran, isco, finding themselves In
ii similar plight, took up arms and expelled
the rascals who had controlled all the machinery
of elections, and in several of the Southern
States the 'shotgun' has been resorted to as
th'* only means of deliverance from 'carpet-bag'
rule and negro domination. lt ill becomes
Colonel Blount to deny the 'sacred right of rev
olutlon.'
PB-SfUDICB I'i.Ai.vr.v shown.
"His strong prejudice against the reform
party ls shown by his comments on the consti?
tutional amendments, which Kal.tk.ua was
compelled to accept In ISkV. He shows no ap?
preciation of the r.ugnanin.lty and forbearance
Of the leaders In that movement, who allowed
tb* King to retain the throne and revenues
which hg had forfeited and did not touch a sin?
gh- right of the natives. He entirely Ignores
a most important article of the revised Consti?
tution; viz, that No executive or judicial
..Seer, oi- any contractor or employe of the
('e.-eminent, or any parson In the receipt of
salary or emolument from th** Gtovernment, shall
be eligible t.. election to the Legislature ?.f the
Hawaiian Kingdom, or to hold the position of
un .?!?? 'ix*- member of th* same. And no mem?
ber of tho legislature shall, during the time (ni
which he ls elected, be appointed to any civil
office under the Qovernment, except that of a
member of the Cabinet.' This struck at the
root of the King's us*- of his patronage to con?
trol Legislature* The power to appoint nobles
waa taken from the King and rested in electors
pnaaesaed of a moderate property qualification.
Thus the control of the Upper House was taken
from an Irresponatble, semi-barbarous despot,
and -riven to the better .lass of natives and
wbltea. it sa. the only way in which the
property and Intelligence of the country could
be assured of any voice In national affairs.
Colonel Blouni would apparently be in favor of
leaving all the great Interests of the country
to the unrestrained mercy of an Ignorant por?
tion of the population, which pays about one?
r-nth of th.- taxes nnd ls largely controlled by
dei i ia Rogues of the lowest type.
"Th" first free snd fair election by secret
ballot f ir twenty years araa held after the revo?
lution of 1>*sT. There Ware no troops except at
Honolulu, anti th- y ware not "risible. The utter
collapse of the Royalla! party at that election
was due to moral cause*, especially to the con.
BtitUtional amen.Itu.-nt cited above. The Com
mlasloner is especially hitter against the Portu
guese settlers, whom he would disfranchise if he
could. He even goes so far as to say that 'lt ls
wrong to -lass them as European*.' Perhaps he
..insiders them as Astatic* Thus he disposes of
12,000 of th- most Industrious, thrifty and moral
p.-.ple iii the ,, un try. Their crime, in his .'yes,
consist* in their unanimous support of the Pro?
visional Oovernmenl and their admiration of
American Institutions.
OPIUM *XD i. rn:uv k-ROS lOXOBED,
"Passing over minor points, it is surprising to
lind thal In his Sketch "f tho legislative session

atruggle between the friends and opponents of
the lottery and opium rings, allied with the
Crown, or to th" final pare*gt of the Lottery
bill, only on** white man voting for lt, and the
appointment of a Cabinet from the ranks of its
supp..iters. This Lottery bill, which waa forced
through by wh>lesa*e hrlbery and the personal
Influence of the (.neon, was expected to be a
s,cine nf revenue which would render her inde?
pendent of loans. It was also believed that the
Lotter. Company, being outlawed in the United
States, could be relied upon to counteract Ameri?
can Influence in thc islands. The virtual sale of

wen be denounced as an gd unfriendly t<> the
Ui Ited State* and th.- omission of any reference
to lt hy Colonel Itlount ls significant.
"As the first half of Colonel mount's report

Boston. Nov. 21?The banquet of the Hornaj
Market Club in Mechanics' Hall to-night wa*
the finest affair of the kind ever witnessed In
Massachusetts, and was a fitting climax to
the recent Republican victory in thia Stat*.
Xearly 1.-00 men occupied sents at the table*,
while not far from 5.000 women and men oc?
cupied the galleries. The hall was elaborately
decorated with flags and bunting, while large
portraits of Presidents Washington. Lincoln,
Grant, Harrison, Arthur. Hayes. Garfield. Gov*
ernor-el-ct ("reenhalge, Governor McKinley,
Thomas H. Reed nnd Lieutenant-Governor Wal?
cott were suspended In front of the balconies.
On the platform were seated, among oth?
ers. Governor McKinley. Governor-elect O reen?
halge, Collector Heard, William H. Bent, presi?
dent of the club; ex-I'ostmaster Thomas af.
Hart, the Rev. K. A. Horton, Senator George
F. Hoar, Congressman Thomas B. Reed, Con
gress-jian Robert G. Cousins, of Iowa, and Gov?
ernor Levi K. Fuller, of Vermont. President
Bent, In behalf of the Home Market Club, wel?
comed ul! to the feast of reason and flow of
soul. He said that a year ago an organ of
the Democracy Invited the Home Market Club
to surrender, but this club knows no such word
as fail. The club rallied its forces, and it still
I lives. He concluded by introducing Senator
Hoar, who was received with great applause.
?BBATOB BOAB IX A MERRIE MOOD.
Senator Hoar was cordially received. "Since
the last meeting of this club," he said, "it ha*
not been our turn to play; it was our Demo
j eratic friends' time to move. Well, since our
j last meeting they have moved and we have
I movtd. They moved when the President called
the extra session of Congress, and we have
I moved tn the elections In Massachusetts, in
New-York and New-Jersey and Ohio and Penn- ?
sylvania and Iowa and Kansas, ami I think, to
follow the metaphor of the game of chess a tts
j tie farther, though perhaps some of our an-J
tagonlsts may understand some other game a ?
i little better, we have said and are entitled to
I say 'Check' to the King. It ls now for our'
, Democratic brethren to move again. This as-,
sembly ls evidence enough that you agree with
me that this is r.o time for the business men of
New-Kngland to abandon their efforts; this ia
: no time for the Home Market Club to give up
! or to disband. There is nothing upon which
good government depends, there la nothing
j which is essential to sound finance or to coni
j menial prosperity to which the party now In
I power in this country ia not a standing aud
constant menace."
Senator Hoar then briefly alluded to the attl
] tude of the Democrats on the silver question.
I He also said:
