made up, at Seventh street, where no

the train, and after it had been made

At Hnmmit avenue alaa crowd of
men had ongregated and upon their
making a hostile demonstration were
charged by the police, who diepewed
tbe mob, and the train passed that
noint safalv. Further on, bowerer,
one of the strikers eeparated from a
crowd of his friends and, jumping
npon the side ladder of one of the
ra-w. attempted to d'nwthe ccupling

don't tee how much improvement
could be expected in the near future.
Railroad men generally would not be
surprised to see the strike extend."
Marshall, Tix , March 25. Noth
ing of importance transpired yesterday
in connection with the strike. The
men still remain firm, and declare
their intention to win if it takes all
ummer. Leading members of the
Knights of Labor say they are now on
the aggressive aud have no idea of
yielding. A walk through the shops
shows that a few more men are at
work each day, and it looks vary much
like the company are going to run in
spite of the strike. Marshall was
never more quiet aud ordnrly.
