PiTTsni'iio, October 1(1. Tho Inter
national Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers held their annual open meet
ing in tho Grand Opera House this af
ternoon. A number of letters) were read from
prominent gentlemen, expressing regret
at their inability to be present; among
them were Governor Cainplell, of Ohio;
Governor Heaver, of Pennsylvania ;
George W. Chillis, of l'liiladelpliia;
President Roberts, of the Pennsylvania
Railroad, and ntlier prominent railroad
After prayer by Grand Chaplain Sor
rity, Mayor Gounoy welcomed tlie dele
gates to the city.
Chairman Adams then introduced
Hon. Chauncy .M. Depew, President of
the -Sew York Central Railroad Com
pany. Tlie ap)earauee of tho dis
tinguished gentleman was the signal for
the wildest of applause.
When ortior had been restored, Mr.
1) -pew proceeded to deliver an address,
which was listened to with great inter
est. Several times he was compelled to
pause, owing to the deafening applause
ui his hearers.
Mr Depew spoke highly of the
Brotherhood of locomotive Engineers
and said that during the period of its
cx.stenee and prosperous growtli hun
dreds of labor organizations have been
lormcd and li-olved. "They had Itcon
started to carry out novel theories or :o
put "m practice unusual and untried pro
cesses. The success ot your body is duo
to its rigid adherence to tlie right prin
ciples upon which it was founded. .No
laixir organization can permanently
succeed whose sole and only object is to
increase wages and diminish hours.
'The fundamental principle of the En
gineers' lirotherhood is, tirst, charily,
in support of the sick or injured mid
contributions to the family of tin; dead ;
second, education, which perfects the
artisan in the theory and practice of his
trade and broadens him lor larger use
and fullness us a citizen ; third, protec
tion in securing and maintaining your
"Your record is unexampled in tho
history of the country."
Mr. "Depew spoke of tho all pervading
incidents of the past few years, of trusts
itiul said : "This universal effort to ab
sorb the individual, to divide tho peo
ple into temporary companies and to
destroy competition, will inevitably end
in disaster and hostile legislation, and
the laws of trade will have only the
legitimate enterprises remaining. In
the same way and from tho same
causes, there have boon several am
bitious attempts to form gigantic lum
ber trusts, which should combine under
a central and autocratic authority.
"Every occupation in which wage
earners could engage lias such associa
tions; certain qualities of audacity,
fluency of speech and capacity for
manipulating caucuses and conventions,
push to the front many men who know
little of the great interests confided to
their cure. Labor must bo as intelli
gent in capital. On its own grounds
tho committee which calls upon the
employer or railroad olllcer must know
its owii business as well us lie knows
Ins. Otherwise, from angry contentions,
because of ignorance, comes the exer
cise of brute force, and violence fails to
secure the success, in nine cases out of
ten, that could havo been had by an
"Hundreds of committees of our em
ployes have been to eco mo and 1 can
safely say that after u full and free dis
cussion, which ulways took place, not
one of them went out of my oflice except
to carry back a satisfactory message to
their constituents. Tho reason for theso
ready settlements wa9 that tho men un
derstood their own business, knew pre
cisely what they wanted anil how much
tho company could afford to concede.
But in the operation of what 1 may call
the labor trust, 1 have had different ex
periences." Mr. Depew cited an instanco whoro
fifteen men at ono point on the lino were
ordered out by the chief of their local
assembly who "took that action because
he had had a row with a passenger con
ductor. On another occasion, a high
ollicial in thoordor called on Mr. Depew,
who soon discovered he knew nothing
of what ho was talking about. Tho
ollicial confessed that ho hud never been
in tho railway service in his life.
"Such representatives of organized
lnlxir ." said Denow. "brim: it into disre-
puto both with employers and tho
"A noininitteo called upon mo last
fall with a series of complaints, all of
wiiieh wurn ouicklv and satisfactorily
adjusted. They then made a demand
on behalf of tho locomotive engineers,
when I informed them that that body
could speak for themselves. They then
said their object was to break up the
organization of locomotive engineers
and to gather into one organization
every department of railway service. If
tho management of tho New York Cen
tral would recognizo the engineers only
through them this result would bo
brought about, and upon n much lower
basis than tho Brotherhood could admit ;
and if wo did not do so they would
strike and tio up tho road."
Mr. Depow said ho informed the com
mittee that they might do their worst,
but in a matter affecting tlio Brother
hood ho would recognizo only that body.
Tho threatened striko never came.
Speaking of tho great Central strike
Depew said: "Years of success with
employes of tho New York Central had
led mo to believe that n strike was im
possible on that road." In that trust ho
went abroad on his annual holiday, to
have Ins hopes suddenly shattered by a
cablegram announcing tho strike, but
'the engineers," ho added, "were truo
to tho relation which for many years
had been established and suitained and
reinvigorated my failing faith in the
ellieiency of my ellbrt to maintain a
satisfactory mid permanent understand
ing between capital and labor. The
citizens of New oik and of the whole
country owe to tho Brotherhood of
Locombtivo Engineers a debt of grati
tude, for tho courage, fidelity and in
telligence with which thcyBtood by their
posts and performed their duties during
tho recent troubles on tho New York
Depew touched briefly on tho matter
of generalownershipof railroads. "Time
does not permit," he said, "a discussion
of tho efforts upon our institutions of tho
appointment ot a million public servants
being given to an administration and
made the patronage of party bosses."
Ho referred to the letter earners in
England, who worked long hours and
got on an average six dollars a week.
After vain ellbrt for tho amelioration
of their rendition, they struck. Tho
Government instantly lilled their places,
nut notice beside each new man and
dispersed the gatherings of tho old ones.
in Germany "io Government owns me
railroads mid a locomotive engineer re
ceives about !f-15 a month, and if lie de
serts his engine ho becomes subject to
"In the varying conditions of our
complex civilization, no general rule
seems possible which will bo applicable
to al! cases, as a relief for the antago
nism between capital and labor. Every
difficulty must bo solved upon its own
merits. It is just hero that intelligent
labor organizations, composed only of
that occupation which seeks to secure
right or redress, can meet its em
ployer on grounds which will show
their mutual dependence and pn
inoto theso common benefits. A
period ought to come when em
ployers in any industry shall not bo
uriaved in hostile camps over the
whole country against their employes
in the same business, when combina
tion will not be of workers on one hand
and ollicials on tlie other against 'each
other, but, with good senso and with
friendly disposition?, they shall meet
upon common ground forcommom good
and in the service of common in
terests." Grand Chief Engineer Arthur was
next introduced and was enthusiasti
Ho congratulated the Brotherhood
on the healthy condition of its affairs,
and said in part :
" Though there is n oneness oi pur
pose, there is a diversity of opinion, and
wo hope, in the course of our dobates,
to find means by which the problem
of our difficulties and differences may
bo solved. It is by honorable action we
have achieved success as a labor organ
ization, not by might, not by loud,
boastful assertions of what, owing toour
number, wo might compel corporations
to do; no. that never has been our pol
icy. Wo ask but our fair, just dues,
"If there have been those who would
array labor against capital, I am not one
of tliom nor with them. If there lie
those who regard tlie interests of Ialor
and capital as naturally or properly an
tagonistic. I do not airree with them.
Tho interests of lulioraiid capital are
identical, or to bo more accurate, recip
rocal. An argument respecting labor
topics which does not distinctly recog
nize .and concede tho truth of this
proposition must need be fallacious and
as matter of fact it is recognized and

Tho insurance featuro of tho Brother
hood was touched upon nt length by the
speaker. Dining the past fiscal year the
Brotherhood had paid to widows and
orphans and disabled members, SO'.'J,
500, making a grand total of $:1,122,G(I9.
Aildres-es wero also made by a num
ber nf delegates.
Referring to a Chicago telegram stat
ing that a party of western engineers
hail left for this city to champion tho
cause of federation, l irst Grand Secre
tary Hayes said: "I know nothing
nltout them. We anticipate no trouble.
When the time comes for considering
tho question of federation, 1 understand
tho majority of tho western delegates
are in favor of such a plan, but as to
what tho outcome will be I will not ven

was playing an engagement at the Grand
Opera House and had a room in tho
Guard lines wero stretched across tho
streets, but were inadequate to keep
back the surging crowds of people that
packed in the streets leading to the
hotel, and police were stationed all
around tho building.
Tho scones and incidents connected
with the rescue of the inmates are
heartrending in the extreme. Tho cries
of women standing in tho upper
windows and of tho excited crowd below
were deafening and, added to this, the
constant roar of the many fire engines
created a babel of confusion and excite
ment in and around tho hotel.
A man and woman was seen locked in
each other's arms in a window on the
fifth floor at the northeast corner of tlie
building. Below them was a perfect
sea of Humes. No possibility of escape,
except by the window, was open to them
and that seemed inevitable death. No
assistance could reach them. The
woman seemed anxious to jump, but
her husband was earnestly entreating
her to desist. The crowd below waited
with bated breath. Tho woman made
one last elfort to jump, but was re
strained by her husband, and a cry of
the crowd signalled the awful end that
must have befallen them as they fell
backward into the room, into a mass of
At a window on the fourth floor, al
most di-ectly under thi, a woman was
surrounded on all sides from the interior
of tlie room by fierce Humes. She seemed
irresolute as to whether to jump to the
pavement or to face the fiery foo that
was fast encroaching on her liberticsand
life. She stepped upon tho sill of the
window and placed her hands above her
head. Tlie people in the street shud
dered and turned their faces to shut out
tho horrible sight that must meet their
gaze should the woman jump to the
ground. She seemed to bo withheld by
either fear or a feeling that escape would
come from some other source. She
stepped from the sill into tho room, but
remained at the window an instant,
when the whole room iieramc enveloped
in Humes and she sank back from view.
Tho frightful shrieks of the guests
and tho crackle of tho flume could be
heard for blocks away. Tho building
burned so rapidly that most of the peo
ple in tlie upper floors wore obliged to
use tho lire escape's or jump for their
One woman appeared at a window in
a room on the north side of the building
with a baby in her arms. Her pitiful
cries for help wero heartrending, -is tho
flames gathered around her. Firemen
tried in vain to raise a ladder on this
sitle of the building. Tho woman was
told to throw out a rope or jump from
tho window. She threw out a rope and
as she was climbing out of the window,
the Humes enveloped her and she fell
back into the building and perished.
Seven or eight men and children
jumncd from tho upper stories on to u
shea in the rear of tho hotel. At one
time seven persons were struggling
together on the shed, which had already
caught fire from flying sparks.
The victims wero half naked. Several
of them were seen to tear olf undergar
ments that had caught fire.
Ono woman lay on the ground, where
she had fallen, tearing the hair from
her head. Her hair had caught lire and
it was with difficulty that the Haines
wero quenched. She, together with
others who had jumped from the rear
windows, was picked up and carried in
a streicner io a saioou in me neignuor
hood. In this saloon several persons
lay on pool tallies, in all positions. One
woman was Annie Shnltz, a laundry
girl, employed in the hotel. She was
rescued from the rear of tho fourth floor
by a colored man, who had already
saved several other lives.
The doors of Gray Brothers, shoe man
ufacturers across" tho street, were
smashed in and several persons were
carried in there on stretchers. The
police oflico was turned into a hospital
and patrol wagons into ambulances.
One of tho most frightful incidents of
tho firo was tho terrible death of a
servant, Annie Cunimings, who jumped
from the fifth storv. Several policemen
stood on the sidewalk holding nets,
ready to catch guests as they jumped.
Two persons, a man and woman, jumped
into one of the nets almost at the same
time and escaped with broken limbs.
The next to jump was tho woman, who
appeared in tho window of the fifth
story in her night clothes. She leaped
out of tho window and, missing tlie net,
was dashed to pieces on the stone side
walk. Sho was picked up and removed
to tho morgue.
Ono of the firemen told this Btory of
the woman who was killed by jumping:
"When wo first camo wo wore hampered
by telegraph wires on West Fayette
street. In trying to raise a ladder, it
became caught in the wires. The
woman stood in tho window, crying for
holp. The flames wero leaping out
toward her and sho was frantic with
fright. 1 went up tho hiddei to cut the
wires. While I was iioing this sue
jumped, thinking we could not reach
her anil the awful result was that she
misrd the not and was killed."
William I Inn-op lowered himself with
a rope half way down from tho fourth
lloor, when tho ropo burned off. Ho
dropped to the ground and wns killed.
Hose Schwartz and another hotel do
mO'tir jumped from the fifth floor and
were also killed instantly.
When tho Humes began to sweep
through tho hotel, night clerk Jones
set an automatic firo alarm bell ringing.
