There is a cloud in the East no big

threatening cloud, one that betokens
war. Rftiasia is massing ber troops for a
descent on Tun ey and the Ciar is soon
to inspect the armies that are to make
another effort to reach to and enter

Mies Anna Morgan tells the Chi
eago 3faU that she was the first person
in this country to recite '"Ostler Joe."
8he says: ''It was sent me in mann
script from London by pne of my
friends when t first appeared under
the non de plume of 'Dagonet' in the
London Timet. I was so much taken
with it that I recited it fifty times at
. least, I guess, and I never beard any
criticism of it. 1 he story ia a broad
one, but it ia told in so ixithetie a way
that I can't see how anybody could re-
i gard it as vulgar."
A viav interesting letter ' from the
- Constantinople correspondent of the
Vcw York Herald will be found on
another page. It tells the story of
England's preparedness for Russian
aggression and the steady purpose of
the Car to unseat Victoria and push
' her out of India. This correspond
ent gives it as his opinion, based upon
statements made by German officers
who attended the winter military
maneuvers in India, that the contest
is likely to take place within the next
throe year.
Tub strikers have placed themselves
at a great diuul vantage with the public
by their conduct in disabling the en
gines of the Texas nd Pacific railroad.
The destruction of property can never
be' consonted to under any circnm-
stances. , It does no good for the strik
ers, but a great deal of harm, and Mr.
Powderly should li sten to counsel
them to a more sonRible and lawful
course. Workingmen have a right to
strike when aggrieved, but they have
no right to cripple tbe machinery or
destroy the property of their employ-
Gen. Vaugham las retired from
the canvass and is no longer a candi
date Tor tho office of Oounty Trustee.
Elsewhere we givo his reasons for
this course, which will, no doubt, be
read with surprise by the public, es
pecially State, county and Taxing-District
officials. Gen. Vaughon has as
Criminal Court clerk given the utmost
satisfaction to the public. He has
been a faithful officer and has per
formed his duties with rare discretion
and tact Hit statement published in
another column bespeaks the charac
f the man painstaking, cautious and
careful and proves that in declining
to be a candidate for any office the
public loeeaj an opportunity for con
tinued service by a man of capacity
and high integrity.
Mb. Pabmua, in the course of the
interview had with him on Saturday,
declares that Mr. Chamberlain, in op
posing Mr. Gladstone's Joint measure
of home rule and land equity, is un
doubtedly guided by a desire to "keep
the Irish members in Westminster in
hopes that they will assist him in
carrying out the Radical programme,
but if he by any chance succeeded as
the result of his present action in
dashing the cup from the lips of Ire
land, so far from the Radical pro
gramme being assisted by Irish mem
bers, a chasm would be created be
tween them and the Radicals that
would not be bridged over in twenty
years;" and Church and State, the
House of Lords, primogeniture and
entail, cate and class and privilege
would take a new lease on life.
Mr. Parnbi.i., in the course of an in
terview had with him last Saturday,
expressed the opinion that if Mr. Glad
stone's health holds out, home rule is
secure. He thlnis that the "Grand
Old Man" can manage to carry his
measures through the House of Com
mons without Mr. Chamberlain's aid,
and says that "apart from the effect of
Mr. Gladstone's influence, the number
of new members in the present Parlia
ment on the Liberal side, and the
number of members on the Tory
side who owe their seats to the Irish
vote are considerable enough to make
the House little anxious for another
general election. Moreover, the Irish
landlords, notwithstanding their pre
tended hostility, will he ho eager not
to miss the great opportunity of tbe
land purchase scheme that their in
fluence under tbe rose will be calcu
lated to take the backbone out of Tory
opposition." Mr. Parncll' also things
that "the Lords will hesitate bufore
they reject tbe scheme if it passes the
Commons. They will be more likely
to confine their attention to making
the land purchase scbvjine as favor
able as possible to landlords, 'and to
minimising by amendments in com
mittee the measure dealing with Irish
autonomy."

WAsuiOToy, March 22. - A delega

the President Unlay in tho interest of
Mr. John G. Stall of that State for
public printer. The President in
formed them that he did not intend
to make any change in the place of
public printer during this sesnion of
Congress. He said that the position
was a very important one, and that
Mr. Rounds was conducting the woik
with efficiency. He could sec no rea
son why a change should be made at
this time at tbe risk of causing con
fusion and interfering with the work
of Congress. The delegates wentaway
very wrathful, some of them predict
ing that the Democrats would lose
everything in the State this fall, and
that a Rvpublicau Senator would bo
elected to succeed Harrison.

Washington, March 22. -Casey
Young continued his testimony before
the Telephone Investigating Commit
tee to-day. He said that Gen. Atkins
was not a member of Congress at the
time tho Pan-Electric contract was
drawn. Witness was a Congressinan
elect, but Gen Atkins went out on the
4th of March, 188't, while the contract
was entered into on March 13th. Wit
ness never offered ta sell or give a
share of the stock to any member of
Congress. No member offered to buy
a dollar's worth of stock from him, nor
did he offer to give any. Mr. Dunn of
Arkansas had talked with witness
about the stock, and asked what he
thought about exchanging a house for
it, to which witness had replied by ad
vising him to keep the house and let
the stock go.
Mr. Ranney asked if witness could
tell what members of Congress he had
conversed with about the Pan Electric.
He replied that he had talked with
Messrs. Dunn, McMillin, Taylor, Hop
kins and Stockslager. There were
fifty or more at leat. and witness
could not mention all of them. . T ey
(the company) did not dream that
Congress would ever have anything
to do with the telephone and that
legislation would ever result. There
was never a bill introduced by him or
any of his associates that related in
remotest degree to the enterprise.
Mr. Van Benthuysen wrote to witness
and said he was going to have gov
ernment suit brought if he could
under the law, whether Garland be
longed to the comp ny or not He
w as going to make Garland bring suit,
and if Garland would not do it he
would go to the President about it.
Subsequently witness too" Benthuysen
and his counsel over to introduce
them to the Attorney General. One
of the counsel stated what they came
for and Garland said ho was inter
ested in -a telephone company and J
could not talk o mem anoui n. ine
counsel insisted an1 Mr. Garland
said: "Gentlemen, I cannot talk to
you on that, subject. I am not the
attorney of the telephone company,
and cannot talk to you." Mr. Van
Benthuysen said: "I have a right to
have a suit brought. If the law re
quires you to bring suit I will see that
it is brought." Garland said: "I
cannot talk to you," and the gentle
men retired. The interview lasted
about five minutes, and took place
some time between tbe 30th of July
and 2d of August. Van Benthuysen
said he would go to the White-House
about it. He did write to the Presi
dent. He said he was not going to
have his rights imperiled by Garland
or anybody else. Witness never
wrote a letter to or spoke a word to
Garland about the government's
bringing suit. The company, he said,
could never get Garland to do any
thing. Adjourned until Wednesday.

Washington, March 22. The Su

The Commissioner of Agriculture of
South Carolina figures that it costs 9
cents to raise cotton in thut State, and
the Commissioner of Agriculture of
Georgia arrives at the conclusion thnt
it can be produced in the latter State
for 8.3:'J cents. In the latter estiinute
nothing is allowed for rent of land,
but one-filth of the cost is chargeable
to fertilizers. Accepting that calcula
tion as true cotton can be raised in tho
bottom lands for about 7conts, leaving
the planter nothing for the use of his
land.

The blackboard of the Cotton Ex
change that contains the records of
receipts and shipments was gaily dec
orated yesterday w th blue ribbon,
suspended on either side of a m ma
ture cotton bale, and Secretary Hot
ter went about smiling a smile that
was visible from the rear a distance of
100 yards. Assistant Secretary La
Hacho was, if possible, more mercu
rial than usual, and even Mr. Wiggs
was able to smile when chalking
down had news on the New York
board, a thing he has never been
known to do before. President Craw
ford, who knows how to smile even
when the market tumbles at the rate
of 10 points a day, was just a trifle
more cheery than usual yesterday,
and his smile a shade more pro
nounced. Tho average factor studied
the board with a look thut denoted a
sense of personal triumph, and the
walking encyclopedia of statistics,
who is too well known to be
referred . to by name, found new
material for the exercise of his favor
ite pastime, figuring. Even the buy
ers, who aro nothing if not chronic
growlers, forgot their usual habit, and
joined in the general hilarity. The
cause of all this festivity was the fact
that thus fur this season Memphis has
received 512,942 bales of cotton, a
record unprecedented in its history.
Tbe nearest approach to it was in 1871,
when the receipts of the whole season
footed up 51 1,43-' bales. In 18S2 tho
season's receipts aggregated 510,789
bales. These figures have now been
left behind, and everything points to
5(10,000 bales before the season isover.
This result is largely due to the pluck
of our factors, who will stand by their
patrons and bold cotton up when it
wants to go down, and who will run
the market up an eigitth at a clip, but
have never lowered the peg more than
one-sixteenth at a time. That's the
kind of a market cotton is looking for,
ami the figures show thut planters have
discovered it.

Why Ihty Ihc'liM'd to Aorrpt thf
Pr xsli ions of tbe Ino
iioTemors.
St. Loi u, Mo., March 22.-The fol
lowing was issued tiy the Knights of
Labor at a late hour to-night :
Hun.r to mr. iioxik's lbttkh.
To the Pub In A (tut-nmnt in rarlr U.
M. Hoii' ledrr to tlie Governor" of Mm
oarl and Kn.-m.
In response to the proposition con
tained in A note written to Mr. Hoxie
by tike Governors of Kansas and Mis
souri, and also the reply of Mr. Hoxie
to the Governors, we beg to state :
Fini. That while in conference in
Kansas City we were sent for by the
Governors, and, out of respect for
theut, a committee was appointed,
consisting of employes of the Gould
roads only, which met with them, and
by request stated tho cause of the
present withd awul of active lulor
from tho roads of the Gould South
western system. On their suggestion
thew gentlemen went to see Mr.
Hoxie and attempted a settlement. It
was. agreed, in deference to their
wishes, that wo should submit to
them all oar grievances, with tho un
derstanding that they would ar
range a . meeting between Mr.
Hoxie knd ourselves. They
desired permission to settle as best
th y could, on an understanding that
we would abldo by their decision. To
this we demurred unless we were first
permitted to pass upon tho terms of
settlement. With this understan ling
we consented to their interposition l
tween Mr. Hoxie and themselves. Mr.
Hoxie refused to receive a delegation
from their employes or the Knights of
Labor, and the Governors received
from Mr. Hoxie the document pub
lished yesterday, which was given to
tho press even before wc were perm it ted
to see it. . Now, in justice to ourselves
and the truth of history we desire to
make the following points of fact:
F'irst-Tbc interposition of the Gov
enors whs voluntary on their part,
coming to Kansas City and seeking an
interview with our borad.
Second We refused them the privi
lege of adjusting our difference or ac
cepting terms of settlement without
first submitting to this committee for
approval. Notwithstanding which,
they received Mr. Hoxie 's proposition,
qualifications and all, and turned them
over to the press and public before we
were even permitted to see them.
Third They say to Mr. Hoxie. after
careful investigation we are unable to
find wherein the Missouri Pacific.
Railway 'Company has violated the
terms and conditions of the agreement
made on the 15th of March, 1885,
touching its mployes iu our rc
Bective'States. To say the least of such a statement
it is not creditable to the minds mid
hearts of men to whom has been com
mitted tlie welfare of a great people,
to say that they will hike advantage of
'ouf wailful skll in legislative techni
calities and wink ut gross violations of
a sacred agreement in its plainly man
ifest spirit because its technical letter
cives an apparent advantage to a great
corporation. Tho Governors state
further: "We recognize the fact that
the Missouri Pacific Railway Com
pany may justly claim that the strike
of March ti, 1880, relieves it of the
obligations it assumed in the circular
of March 15, 1885."
In rendering this verdict the Gov
ernors have blindly ignored the fuct
that the obligations assumed in said
circular at that time too' effect on all
the roads operated and leased by
the said Missouri Pacific Railway
Company, as was fully understood so
to apply, although by oversight but
two roads and States were mentioned
therein. Kvidence is at hand that the
striting employes of that State. were
up to the date of tbe strike
woriing for less pay than be
fore the stri:e of lust year,
showing not a restoration of old pay,
mil reaiiy a reduction, in violation ot
said circular agreement. Evidence is
at band that bridgemen huve been
compelled to work many hours over
time without receiving the agreed
over timo pay.
Evidence is at hand to prove thnt in
order to make it necessary to reduce
the force of workingmen, work has
been sent to contract shops,and in one
instance, a whole foundry sub-let in
order to bring the men under a new
supervision, thus depriving the men
of the provisions of the circular agree
ment. All this done to create dissat
isfaction and induce tlie men to leave
the company's employ, after which
the men were ennloved. and alwavn
at reduced rates. Evidence is at hand
that whole (tan its of men have been
discharged notwithstanding that Mr.
lioxie agreed on May 18, 1885, Hint
rather than reduce the working force
he would reduce the honrs.
Every effort to have these men re
instated was refused by tlie company
on the ground thut they were not cov
ered by the agreement, which agree
ment says: "Wc will reduce the hours
of work instead of reducing the force,
whenever the necessity arises."
Tho outrages on the lexus ami 1 a
cacific railway are sought to be made
a matter entirely out ol tlie range ot
tbe agreement. Men were, out of sheer
prejudice, discharged without an effort
to reduce the hours of work. The re
ceivers refused to comply with tho
agreement of tho company's ollicials
with the employes, after the institu
tion of the receivership, notwithstand
ing mey uo noi repudiate oiner agree
ments of said ollicials, showing a clear
intent to use tho United States court
and its ollicials for dishonorable pur
poses, It is charged by Mr. Hoxie in pre
vious statements' thut the agreement
of March 5, 188', has lcen violated by
the employes. Said agreement is pub
lished in the morning papers of March
22d, and we ask any intelligent person
to read with cure, and note if it be pos
sible for the employes to violate any
provision of sniil agreement, Isj they
never K" desirous and thut for the
solo reason that it is un agreement on
the part of the company to do certain
tilings; but requiring nothing what
ever of the employes.
But why should we say more? If
Mr. Hoxie did not now that he was
guilty of Kross wrong and injustice
why would lie reluse to listen u our
evidence and hear our apH-al for re
dress? Why would he shelter him
self bebind subterfuges and techni
calities? Why would he refuse to
treat with the men ho has wronged
and write evasive letters to Governors
who cannot possibly enter into the
merits of the controversy? The truth
is simply this: Mr. Hoxie wante
trouble. Ho has provoked it. He is

stating that for many lays tho com
merce of tlu- country traversed by the
Missouri I'lM-itic, the Missouri, Kansas

and inasmuch us tho KnlghU of Lubor
have mode overtures for tho purpose
of arbitrating grievances long pre
sented to tho railway pfiicials, which
overtures have .been ignored; as
the withdrawal of the forces of

merchants and business men of this
city to combine to bring to bear the
jiower of the law to comel tho re
sumption of business on tho railroads
in accordance with the provisions of

suites that the committee will do all
in it power to prevent the withdrawal
of tho men at other iints, and on

of their rights being recognized, yet,
if these men strike, the responsibility
shall not rest with them. Tbe com
