THE IBIUEB1 AID JtTMrL.
The strike; in ant) about St. LouU
. ha grown In aeriooBneea since yester-.
day. Jajr Gould's impolitic and bous
" ' bastic card, with the threats of civil
and criminal suits againrt members of
the Knights of Utbor, has been met
with a card f om the strikers, who
characterise his "silly emanations" as
"mi' insult to the intelligence of our
school boys and challenge to the
courage of our grandmothers." This
is word for word. His declaration
of a determination to make no com
promise but to fight it out has been
met in a moat terrible way by a strike
by the switchmen of East St. Louis,
embracing the ferrymen, which ef
fectually blocks all traffic except by
tin- MiftBifippi river. This, too, is an
answer to the insolently partial reso
lutions of the Bt. Louis Merchants'
Kxchange, which sided with the rail
road monopolists and had no word
for the workingmen either of
advice or counsel. But this,
had as it is, is not the
womt. There is reason to fear that
the strike may extend eastward with
still more disastrous, if not actually
destructive, effects to traffic and trade.
Thus "bad begins and worse remains
behind." The workingmen have made
every overture possible to them for
compromise and arbitration, but Mr.
Gould, in tho pride, plenitude and
pomp, of his millions, and backed by
the eagerly-given opinions of his rail
road lawyers hired to construe his
will and wiah in every law, refuses,
and declares war, hoping, no
doubt, that the exasperated men
may be driven to acts sub
versive of law and that may
put them in the power of the courts.
But past experience, that of Wednes
day especially, ought to warn the
workingmen that destruction of prop-
erty i not the means they should em
ploy if they desire the help of a favor
ing public sentiment, such as has
generally suutained them in their en
counters with power. Strong in their
intrenched position, as stated in the
dispatch from Fort Worth, Tex.,whicb
we publish on tho second page, an act
of violence would be an act of folly.
Self-restraint must characterize them
if they would win. In silent
selt'-containedncHS they munt' await
the issue. The result cannot
long be delayed. Their power, man
aged with discretion, will insure them
the continued respect of the people
everywhere, and increase the sympa
tic)' their conduct has aroused. They
must bear in mind that if they make
a misstep now they will not oidy en
danger their present position and the
prospect of a triumphant vindication,
but may postpone or delay the coming
of the day now hastening apace when
lalxir will be elevated to a plane with
capital and its claims be considered not
from the basis of degradation which it
has so long occupied, but as a quantity
without which -human . movement
' and growth were' impossible. The
present contest should have this as its
greatest outcome. The immediate
gain of money or time, or both, is a
boon worth contending for, but tho
ultimate of the elevation of labor
must not be lost sight of. As Mr. An
drew Carnegie says in a paper which
we publish on our sixth page, we
must make a rapid advance from
strikes and lockouts, just as civ
ilized nations are getting farthor
and farther away from war. They
are, as he says, " mere exhibitions of
strength and endurance " that are ex
cusable because they are the only
present means to the end desired.
But they must be put away as bar
barous and tending to help as low
wages and long hours do, to the brutal
izing of the race. Strikes must be left
far behind, and the more civilized and
civilizing plan of arbitration, and ulti
mately a sliding scale of wages or co
opera ion be adopted as the only ra
tional and reasonable way of guaran
teeing capital and labor in anything
near to continuous and profitable em
ployment. This ought to be kept
steadily in view by the managers of the
strike in St. Louis and in Texas and
Arkansas. They must be itrong now
to be strong hereafter. Every gain
made of time or of wages is an ad
mission of the justice of the working
man's cause, and every strike like
the present when conducted with
dignity and in peace an argument for
the necessity for arbitration that
has weight, especially with freighters
and other? whose interests are most
immediately affected. Interstate com
merce and trade cannot stand any
more strains like that which has al
most paralysed St Louis, and threat
ens the whole country. The money
loss already sustained . would more
than meet, for many years to come,
any demand for lessened hours of la
bor or increase of wages. As a mat-
ter of economy, therefore, this
strike h's its lesson, and it is one that
is not likely soon to be forgotten. It
proves that strikes are agencies of loss
and must give way to arbitration,
which will conserve labor and capital
and the public peace, and prevent the
disarrangement of commerce and
trai1 that is now menacing the whole
etnifUry north of the Ohio river.
Where labor ami capital are con
cerned, as in everything else in life,
"an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure."

Washington, March 25. Secretary
Manning's condition is alarming.
When he fell he ruptured a blood ves

fered a slitrht hemorrhaee. Fears am
entertained that he will have another
attack of apoplexy. It is a settled
met mat Air. Manning will never re

told the President weeks ago that he
wanted to resign, but Cleveland asked
iiiui iu remain unm congress ad

prominently mentioned to succeed
Mr. Manning are Assistant Secretary
Fairchild and the Hon. Orlando B.
rotter ot xsew York.

T J . V-
j-.x-ocimior i. it. uruce and ex-
longressman John K. Lynch of Mis
sissinpi calbd on the President yester
day in reference to the massacre of
inirteen negroes at Carrollton, Miss.,
on the 17th instant, stating that they
had received numbers of letters from
colored people in that section who are
almost paralyzed with fear bv the out
rage. A number of them had fled tn
tne woods, tnd it was to-day unknown
now many were Killed and had died
ot the wounds. The attention of the
President was directed to the fact that
tne uovernorof Mississippi had taken
official action in the premises. The
President expressed himself in decided
terms against such affairs as a hlio-ht
to civilization and expressed himself
as surprised that the State authorities
had taken no steps to have the out
rage investigated and the guilty parties
brought to justice.
TUB EDUCATION BILL.
About fifty members of Congress
held an indignation meeting in the
House Rivers and Harbors Committee
room yesterday to protest nioiinst tho
action of thetommittee on Kducation
in pocketing the educational bill.
They passed resolutions expressive of
their feelings, and instructed Mr.
Willis to introduco a new bill and nsk
to have it referred to another commit
tee, lliey directed, also, that two
members from each . delegation be
selected to work, up a sentiment far
year ended the 10th day f January
last. The exhibit thus made of tho
operations of the commission account
thus presented of the results follow
ing the execution of the civil service
law cannot fail to demonstrate
its usefulness and strengthen the
conviction inai mis scliemo lor a
reform in the methods of administer
ing the government is no longer an
experiment. Wherever this reform
has gained a foothohl it hassteadilV
advanced in the esteem of those
charged with public administrative
duties, while the people who desire
good government have constantly been
confirmed in their high estimates of
ita valus and etliciencv. With the
benefit it has already secured to the
public service plainly apparent, and
with its promise of increased useful
ness easily appreciated, this cause is
commended to the liberal care and
jealous protection of Congress.
The report says applicants huve
been examined within the vear from
every State of the Union and every
Territory, except Utah. The whole
number of persons examined during
the year has been 7602, of whom 8S7
were males and ".SO were females. The
whole number thus far examined
since the act was passed has been 17,
491. Of those examined a trifle less
than two-thirds succeeded. The I
whole number of appointments made
during the past year from those exam
ined has been 1876. each for the nm-
bationary period of six months. If to
these we add 2200, the number made
during the previous eighteen months
under the rules, it shows that 4176 have
been appointed in two years. Every
one of the examinations has been
open to all alike, without regard to
political or religious opinions. About
2OC0 Republicans and alout 2000
Democrats have secured places In the
public service under the civil service
act. The report states many particu
lars of the evils that were to be re
moved, and how far thev have been
remedied under the new svstem, based
upon free and open competition of
merit. Political assessments hnvn
oeen in a considerable measure Bit
ihvhimsu, anu solicitation and pressure
for appointments have been great
ly umuea. fliemoers ot Congress
u"ve oeen relieved ironi much
annoyance. Those administer'ng the
government have had their time much
less taxed by office-Bookers than for
merly, and have conseoiientlv Imd
much more time for doing the public
work. The ability to dictate appoint
ments and enforce assessments, which
has been the strength and the profit
of partisan manipulators and dema
gogues, has, the report says, been
diminished in the same degree that
faithful study in the schools and good
character and reputation in private
life have been encouraged and re
warded. The renort cnnclurlna u-ith

apprehension alvout h.m to-day, that
the switchmen in tin- y:irdsot till the

Southern railroad throughout Arkan
sas. lie says the people have waite
patiently two weeks for an amicable
settlement. They have un interest in
the regular r-iniiing of trains, am
commerce and good onler and the
peace of the country should not
jeopardized lv a longer suspen ion oi
business on the great public highways
by a common carrier whose duty
it is to regularly operate trains
for the convenience and welfnr
of the country. Therefore, the rail'
way is requ red to proceed at once to
regularly run trams over the road un
der tno penalty of liemir nroceede
against at law for further failure to do
so. In order that the corporation
may freely and without hindrance
discharge its duty to the public, all
persons are not i lied to refrain from
any interference with trains, tracks,
motive power ami appliances und
penany oi law, and Nientls in coun
ties penetrated by the railway are
charged specially with the execution
ot tliese commands, and all good citi
zens are expected to preserve onler
ami retrain irora acts calculated to
lead to breaches of the peace, and
from all tresspassers on or interference
with the railway or the operations
bridges have been burned, spikes
have been withdrawn and trains
derailed to tho great detriment of
commerce and travel, and the placing
of life in great peril. It is said that
this condition of affairs has been
brought about by the organisation
known us the Knights of I-abor, and
tlmt persons engageil in these lawless
deeds are members of that order.
Whether this is truo or not it
is hardly creditable tbat this
order, or the licst elemeuta in it,
can countenance the violations of law
mentioned. Emidoves have the un
questionable moral mil legal right to
quit the service of their employers
w henever their employment is not
remunerative and satisfactory, provid
ed such action does not violate
their contract ; but when they quit
and sever their relations, ' it is
the duty of those quitting to
get out of the way and allow
any others who may wish to take the
service abandoned free to do so. In
timidation or interference is a gross
violation of the right of freemen,
and cannot be tolerated in a free gov
ernment. Now, therefore, I, John
Ireland, Governor of Texas, do
hereby issue this, my proclamation.
warning all persons, whosoever they
may be, engaged in any of the said
unlawful acts that they ant entailing
on themselves disaster and ruin, and
that offended and outraged justice
