represented their tide r( the trouble

they were wiWog to resume work

there have not been any orders Issued
for the State militia."
"Have you determined whether
yon will order them out? There is a
report in Ht. Louis that tbey were all
under orders at JSprinftfield and other
points of the State; that extra trains
were wailing in readiness, and 20,000
rounds of ammunition had been dis
tributed." "No, sir; I have not made np my
mind. It is a serious thing to order
them on', no matter how much care

TBI eTBISK STILL CONTINl'ES.
Contrary (o the general x?ctal!on
that the Kxecntivn Committer of Dis
trict Apembly 101 wouli denipna'c
the hour tf 10 o'clock this morning as
the timet when the striking KuigtiUot
Libor should ro to work, no order to
that fleet was Issued, and nt 10 o'clock
the strike still continues. None of ti e
strikers have applied this morning ti
the MiMourl Pacifio clllclals for work,
and they say that thoy will ni t r!o so
until ordered by their Executive Com
mittee. Tns 1IICDTIVK COMMITTEE;
of PUlfiit Assembly No. HtlfeO, the
members of which include the Mis
souri Pao(lc shopmen and mechanics,
appointed a committee to call upon
Master Mechauio Uartlett and ascer
tain what men he would re-employ.
The committee has not yet had a con
ference with Mr. Uartlitt, and neither
the demands of the committee nor the
lane of Mr. JJartlett are oilluially
nowo. A member of the eommiitaa.
however, said this morning that they
wonld demand that all the man, with
out exception, who struck,-shall he
re-employed.. - Mr. Bartlett was seen,
and ia reply to an inquiry aa i to
wbatmem he would take bask, replied
that he would exercise his own judg
ment in the matter that none of those
who had destroyed the company's
property weuid , lis re-em plnj-ed, and
that the number whom he should take
back would be determined by the
number tf men actually needed, which
was to', iny that competent men who
had been engaged during the strike
wonld not bediDchnrgedt ) make room
for the strikers. The final settlement,
therefore, of the M rike on the Miwotiri

THE MBET1NO OP THE STRIKEKt
at Tnrneri Hall this morning greatly
decreased the number of strikers con
gregated around the Relay depot and
. the railroad vards jn this city, and the
,. officials of the Vandalia road thought
tbey would take advantage of thia by
.sending out a freight train. One was
accordingly made up, but upon ftut
ing from the yards the engine was ap
proached by a number o! strikers who
pemueoVd the engineer -to desert bis
jwet. The engine was then detached
from the train and ran back to the
round-bouse. At the same time a
freight train was made np on the Illi
nois and Kt Louis tracks, and was
about to start out when several strikers
requested the engineer to abandon his

train departed without further inter

HUH MClia MEN AND TUB GOVERNOR.
A bint nion to-day several repre
sent itlves ol the MeirhanU Ki
change, headed by Mr. D. R. Francis,
Mayor i'f the city, csllet on .Gov.
Ogleoby at the Martell Houfc, in East
Kt Iiuls. Hpeecbea were made set
ting forth the situation, the delay to
commerce, the injury to the tity, the
lawlen ai ti of tbe strikers, etc., and
urging npon him the neceeet y fur
call I UK out the militia at once to re
st ire order and efl-'Ot the resumption
of trelght t'aflin. The Governor re
11 e l that, while he knew the au
tnoritiesof Ka;t St. Louis were un
able t cope with the situation, tbe
county of Nt. Clair was large and
populous, and that ths powers cf the
Hheriff were very great, 'l't ee had
not been exhttueted, and until tbey
were he o uld not, under the law, call
on the military for aid. He greatly
r.'gretted the sitnatlon of affaire, but
did n it fend authmtand to take more
forcible measures at present. If,
however, he should be actually
obliged to bring Boldiers here they
would come for active service and
resolute work; theio would be no
nonsense nor child's play about it.
The KlinAlion M fenal Ml, LenU,'
.East 8t. Louis, III April I. Owing
ta tho absence of any definite orders
from their Executive Committee rsto
the exact time when they shall return
1o work, tlte strike of the yardmen
and switchmen in this city still con
tinues. ' The Blrikersjhave asembled
in great numbers this morning in the
railroad yards and aiound tbe Rolay
depnt, hut 1)0 serious disturbances are
reported. They have expressed their
Intention cf not resorting to violence,
however greet the provocation, and
will pursue the fame course as that of
vesterday in the attempt to render
freight traffic an impossibility by per
suading the engini era to desert ttieir
poets. In view of this determination
the mcersty of calling upon the
militia to protect the railroad property
is not row seriously considered. The
prestn eof the Depnty United Ktaes
inatHlials has a restraining influence
upon the ni-wt ihiiionstratwo memheis
of the crowd, ami thn efforts of the
VVabu-h roml, which is under conin-1
of thn United StUea (Joint, to aUit
cut freight trains, are iot interfered
with. Hie knowledge that the Gov
ernor of the KUUti ami Adjtitaut-tien-eialVanieare
wa'chlng their ev;ry
nnvenient, in order to determine
whether or not it snail ha necesrarv to
cull out the militia, alro restrains the
strikers from violence, and the crowds
are in consequence unusually ordeily
nrSINRSH RfcH'MIMl.
Iepite thn continuance of the
strike npsrt this side of the rive-, a
c msiderahie number of new switch-
m?n and yardmen have been em
ployed to fill tbe places made vacant
by the strikers, and all appearances
this rooming indicate a snntdv re
sumption cf freight traffic by the dif-
lerent road, bwilcn eoKinea are now
running hick ward and forward in the
yards preparatory to starting out
freight tra ns. None of the switch
engineeis have as yet been prevailed
upon to leave their engines, and if the
regular freight engineers shall be
equally faithful in performing their
uuvy mere is no doubt but that
freight fatlic on the roads hers will
be at least partially resumed to-day.

largest number ol strikers were assem

chosen remarks, bearing upon the
strike. He cautioned them against re
sorting to violence In anv form and in

obeyed and enforced; that if the
county autberities were not equal to
the task of preserving the rilroed
property there was a power still
stronger, which would be called npon
to prevent its destrnct'on. The Gov
ernor invited them to meet at Turner's
Hall at 11 o'clock, where he desired to
talk with them upon the general situ
ation. One of the crowd intimated
that tueb a meeting would be accept
able to them, provided the strikeis
could lave a chance to "talk back"
and present their side of the care. To
this the Governor agreed, and the

At 9 o'clock thia morning Inspector

by Judge Cowing, was, in company
with Detective Philip Reilly ol the

When thn train on which tho ox-Alderman
had come from Knsox, on Ike

speetor Byrnes stepped np to him and
said: ''Mr. WniUywe want to see
you." The ex-Alderman, who wiw not
in the least disconcerted, seemed to
underHtand the purtiort of their mis-
siein even before the warrant wan pro
duced and he wiw informed that he
was under arrest.
It is generally believed that Waite
is the man that wrote the nnnh
talked-of letter to Judge Gildersleeve.

An evening paper publishes an in

which the judge says Waite iH the
man t hut wrote the letter offering to
tell nil he knew about the Bromlwav

District Attorney Martine now-stout-

Tho District Attorney refused re

fact that Waite was met at the depot
by Police !nsector Byrnes and taen
at once to Mr. Martine's office, where
a long conference was held. Waite is
now closeted with Byrnes, nnd it is
said that he is making u detailed con

under actual arrest, but is being held
as a witne s.

During an acute attack of Bronchitis, a
ceaseless tickling in the throat, and an
exhausting, dry, hacking cougb, afflict
the sufferer. Sleep is baulsbed, and great
prostratloa follows. This disease Is also
attended with Iloaneneas, and sometime
Loss of Voice. It ia liable to become
chronic, involve tbe lungs, and teriuiuato
fatally. AVer's Cherry Pectoral afford
speedy relief and cure In caaci of lirou
ehltla. It controls tbe disposition to
cough, and Induce refreshing sleep.
I have been a practicing physician fol
twenty-four years, and, for' the pat
twelve, have surt. red from annual attack
of Bronchitis. After exnauatiug all tbe
nsual remedies
Without Relief,
I tried Ayer Cherry Pectoral. It helped
me immediately, and effected a speedy
cure. O. Stoveiul, M. Tn Carrollton, JIUa.

I was attacked, last winter, with a severe
Cold, which, from exposure, grew worse
and finally settled on mv Lungs. By
night sweats I was reduced almost to a
skeleton. My CJouijli was incesnant, ami I
frequently spit blood. My pliysiclun told
me to give, up biislneiN. or 1 would not
live a month. After taking various reiue
dies withont relief, I wa liually
Cured By Using
two bottles of Aycr'a Cherry Pectoral. I
am now In perfect health, and able td
resuirfe business, after having been pro
nounced Incurnble with Consinnptlou.

For years I was In a decline. I hnd
weak lungs, and suffered from Bronchitis
and Catarrh. Ayer5 Cherry Pectoral re
stored me to health, and I have bceii for a
long time comparatively vigorous. Ju
case of a sudden cold I alwavs resort to'
the Pectoral, and And speedy relief.
Edward E. Curtis, Rutland, Vt.
Two years ago I suffered from a severs
Bronchitis. The physician attending me
became fearful that tbe disease would ter
minate In Pneumonia. After trying vari
ous medicines, without benefit, he finally
prescribed Aver' Cherry Pectoral, which
relieved me at once. I continued to take
this medicine a short time, and waa cured.
