week abut what they Intended to do a goon
M the soldiers wont away that the timid people
Buffalo cannot entirely convince themBolves
that something dreadful will not happen but
th re does not appear to the careful observers
t be the illghtost cause for alarm Outside
of an occasional Isolated case of assault on
em of ttie men who came here and tc1 the
plaoos of tho mon who forfeited them by strik
ing It Is not probable that thore will be any
more violence or lawlessness of any kind I

clall ralrold companies provided
for them
Orand Master Sweeney loft town about 1
oclock bound for Chicago That he was not
I pleased with Buffalo was plain lie was un
happy Ha was ovon prepared to swear ciT as
a labor leader and was ready to reform and
j wanted to become a newspaper reporter He
was captured at tho depot beforo his departure
br a Buffalo reporter His opinions of the lost
cause of Switchman Quinn who thumped
him and his resolves to reform are reported
1 as follows
Alono unfriended and melancholy Grand
Master Swooney sat on his satchel In an ob
score corner of the Central train shod this
I I morning reading a morning papers account
of tho assault committed upon him yesterday
t
and of tho utter failure of tho switchmens
1 strike He had come by an hour too soon to
take the Michigan Central train for his homo
in Chicago The rain pattered dismally upon
the roof of tho train shed while ho waited
toro alone with his eye swollen and his face
i cut from tho cruel blows dealt him yesterday
In an Interview had with him while he waited
a Commercial reporter was enabled to gather
up and tie fast all dangling threads of specu I
lation and doubt as to some things that have I
happened and as to otliors which bad been
predicted
Before yOU leave this town Mr Sweeney
Will you definitely state the Inception and
of tho movement yesterday toward
progress a
resumption of the strike asked the reporter
Some of these men who found they couldnt
get their places back began the response
were angry with me because the strike was
off and they wanted to do something and
I J didnt know just how They held a meeting
U though yesterday afternoon and they pro
posed t override my action and were going
to cal on the strikers again and go ahead to
fight the railroad company all by themselves
The decision of the meeting came on a motion
Ignore my official acton and goahead again
with tho strike They were very loud and tho
notion was passed and the Grand Master was
to be rebuked So the matter stood Overnight
they cot cool a little They began to see
where they stood Some folks advised them
that their action was secession that they
practically outlawed themselves from their
k order and that anyhow there was not enough
oUhem to cut any great figure This morn
fnl < they came up to see Third Officer Barrett
I of the order They cried and hollered They
1 wanted him as they said to gtvo them a re
lease Barrett told them to get out What did
they want A release from and what did they
I want release for Ho told them that
It the Grand Master had declared the
strike off and that was all tho roloase they
f needed to have Then he gave thorn some
more hot talk that made them think They
went out and called another meeting at
I Which I understand they have called off tho
rump strike which they ordered on yesterday
1 Now all who can regain their places are coins
back to work
Mr Barrett then has not at any time
to such guerrilla strike
given encouragement a Iuerlastrike
f I as tho men decided on yesterday l
s Oh no Barrett wouldnt take any action
official closing of the strike He
against my ofcial co lng 10
t has just gone over to his hotel for his bag and
is to travel West with mo on tho 1250 train
It Is believed by many who seek as a just
cause for the assault of I Quinn upon you that
Quinn charged you with betraying tho men
that you told him he lied and that he then
used his lists Will you give the exact conver
sation that preceded the assault l
That thing was premeditated Those fel
lows woro sore and hot because they oould not
let tholr places back again They wanted to
hold somebody responsible and there is no
doubt that the crowd who came up to that hal
where I cave mytestlmony yesterday before the
r Arbitration Board had done so In order to get
1 satisfaction out of ml When I started the I
S balance ot the strikers were down In Kaisers
Bal where they had gathered to wait until I
t should porno alone after giving my testimony
and talk with them These other follows
couldnt watt so they came up to the
hall When we started down the
1 ftlra together thin mal Quinn to whom
r lance lent 2b to get home from a convention
y came alougdo of 10 and said How abput
j thll Alonlelde the strike of1 I said Yo
Johnnie we have made a hard fight but there
U Housekeeping It up any longer By this
time we were on the Street and while the most
ao of the crowd fell lack Quinn walked alone
j with me and said Well how atout this 1
Am I to lose my job over this strike Well
ohnny1 answered when men go out on
atrlke somebody must make acrllleei I had
Just reached that word when he struck me in
the face He must hare had something In hU
band ace there Is I no doubt but what he had I
tere
Game up there t do me
They lay Mr Sweeney that you sold out
their cause to the rahiroas
I havent seen the color of a dollar of rail
road money The rail roads dont spend money
on strikes that way There will always be men I
t raise that cry when a cause fall I This being
labor leader I guess dont par There never
was a labor leader rut who didnt finally got on
his uppers I you win you are all right I
you lose you are no good and you have been
bought and all that sort ot thing I believe I
shall go Into newspaper work I could com
mand 140 n week In Chicago and I could get
Iet
about among labor folks very well

everything connected with tho recent HtrlLu
some newspapers today and notably In
Buffalo and New York city described thu
going out again of tho old emploj eos who had
b on taken back on the Lackawanna and the
Nickel Plate an 1 renewal of the strike They
declared that the whole strike was on again
that Grand Master Hwecnty had neon deserted
by the great switchmens organization and so
on Home of f them even went so far us to quote
the Grand Master Switchman In an Interview
In a manner that made him appear t saY that
he declared the strike off simply to secure the
departure of the troops and would declare It
on again as soon as the troops wore gone I
Bwseney of course didnt say anything of
the kind and men with good common sense
would never intimate that he did He was
more sick of the strike than he ever a of any

At tho close of tomorrows matches the

on Monday and when ono man has been de
clared tho winner of tho first prlzo in the all
comers of 1802 then on Tuesday morning
Oliver 8 Campbell will stand ready to defend
his title and trophy as the singles champion of
America
Dark clouds which every now and then let
fall a shower of rain made today a most un
propitious ono for the continuation of the play
In the fourth round of tho tournament The
courts were In a soggy slippery condition
caused by last nights heavy rain and for
some time It was doubtful whether or not any
playing could be done Hut at last Dr James

caused Hall and Chnso to bo sot to work on the
star court Time covered cullorlos of tho club
house worn filled to overflowing and around
the edges of tho court was a thick fringe of
tho latecomers
Hal had tho first service In what afterward
proved to bo a rather exciting fiveset match
From tho very start It was plainly seen that
Chaso was playing a very steady and accurate
game of tennis very much better than his play
nt Nuhant cave any Indication of The court
was soft and fllpuury a fact very much to his
a J unlace as ho prefers tho low bound ot r the

strokes mid this HIUIIO fact ot tho slippery

Hull plus ed brisk steady bull us ho saw he

The funeral ot Fur man Schenck the col
ored tat boy at New Brunswick yesterday
afternoon attracted many ot the residents ol
thc town to the old frame house In time suburb
whoro ho had lived and died No ono knows
just how much Furinan Hchcnck welshed itt
the time of his death Last spring on his
40th birthday ho weighed exactly 470 pounds
Soon after that ho began to grow even
fatter and was forced to give up bin
dally walks Many people Imagined thai
ha had accumulated considerable money
while traveling with Barnums circus
Ho received a good salary at that time but In
his easy goodnatured way ho spent It as fast
aa ho comfortably could After leaving the
circus and becoming tired ot posing aa a freak
in n Coney Island dime museum ho wont to
work In the kitchen ot a private family In Now
Brunswick But his suddenly increasing
weight compelled him to quit work and ho
went to live with his brother at 340 Comstock
street the last street at ono end ot the town
l
TURMAN BCUEKCr
All day long ho rat at the open window With
hands folded and eyes gazing abstractedly at
the trees The rest of the household were too
busy to devote much time to him and he
lived day after day with his own thoughts At
night he climbed a narrow winding flight of
stairs to his bedroom and so much did he
dread this climb that he would sit up long
after the others In the house had retired try
Ing to make up his mind to go up stairs He
grew fatter and fatter until he must have
weighed at least 520 pounds Last Sunday he
complained that he had lost his appetite On
Monday he took to his bed Wednesday morn
Ing ho died
Undertaker James L Rogers took measure
ments ot time bedroom the width the stairs
and the width of tho doors He found that the
body would have to bo lowered down the stairs
by ropes and that the coffin could pass out
only through the kitchen door tn the rear ot
the house At 11 oclock Wednesday fore
noon he began his work With tlio aid of a
broad plant and some strong straps and
ropes he and his assistants got the body down
stairs with on hours work The coffin was an
oblong box U feet 3 i Inches long 2 foot 8 inches
Wide and 2 feet 2 inches high
Yesterday afternoon a groat many colored
persons crowded into time parlor and sat there
waiting for the minister to come A large
crowd gathered In the street waiting to seethe
coffin At 2 oclock time liev leo C Aylor a
very young colored minister arrived Ho
preaches In time Zion Methodist Church at tlio
other end of the town Very few of the persons
tn the room knew him and he hardly knew a
soul there He appeared to be a little nervous
Ho said among other things
c7i
THE nay OEOROK C ATLEIt
My brethren I did not know our dopirted
brother except by sight But that doesnt
make a bit of dlffetonce I can give u man
JUst as good a funeral If I never saw him he
fore in my life As far as size was concerned
time departed was a champion Ho ranks
with the largest men that ever lived In life he
weighed over 51X pounds they tell mo but
now he does not weigh anything Ho Is not
dead It Is only his flesh that remains below
His size calls my attention to ancient hU
tory to time time when men grow to be largo
to Saul and Oollah who were moro than nine
feet high But this man was unlike those men
in many re pects For instance as to height
ho was no higher than an ordinary man But
lie was very stout Unlike Haul and bush he
was not head und shoulders above all mon
JoMma as his stone couch shows was nine
cubits or more tall and four cubits through
Ho lit all probabilIty stands on record as the
largest man that ever lived Mr Schenck
ranks very much in the line of those three
groat historic characters as to size
I wonder If there Is any resemblance be
tween a mans mind ana his body The
ancients thought that thcro was They bo
le ved that great men could live only In big
bodies Kocratcsbuing the greatest man that
over lived excepting Solomon was of Interior
site and ho proved that there was no relation
between a mans mind and the size of his body
I I think that IH reasonable too Time mind Is
tiio driving wheel of the human body When
hero are more cars than there Is steam
the train wont move There was too
nilfth flesh In tlllR mnn fiftO nnnnHa
anti not enough mind to push It along That
is time reason ht died Had he been twice as
pmnll ho would have lived twice as long proh
ftbly eighty years His mind wa not moro
tlmn yours but his body was more He died
exactly when ho was full grown His body
was too big for his mind We will now take up
tuft text
Then followed a short sermon After It was
over eight men carried the coffin out of time
kitchen and through the small garden and
laced It In the livnrse Two carriages fol
owed It to the cemetery

called on Mr McNeil last night Ho was at

right forearm which wits swathed in ban
dages
Is it really true that you wore bitten by a
shark Mr McNeil
Ho nodded solemnly blow out a aloud ot f
smoke and said

And Is it really truo that you pulled the
shark into your boat und punched him and
