The formal revocation lmt nixtit by
the General Eiwntive O mmittee of
their order to tha Knights cf Labor
to rrturo t work, makes the outlcok
to-day leas bope'nl, and the rika
may not be o nearly ended as it was
thouxht. The Missouri Paciflo baa
already cuployed a auilicltmt number
of new men to carry on its busini,
and tbe tlulnls of that road anticipate
no tronlln in keeping the read open
in spite of tbe renewal of the strike.
IN bast it. touts,
however, the situation is different, for
those who have already returned to
work, aa well is those who announced
their intention of returning to-day, are
Kolgbts of Labor and are subject to
the era el me fexecnuve Uommtt

those who nave none to work will to

will withdraw their applications for
their old rit'ons when they shall
receive the official announcement of
the committee's action.

Dallas. Tax.. Anril 5. Among tbe
men in bumble circunu Unces who
bavs been throat into sudden noto
riety by tbe strike on tbe Gould Bouth-
wettern system is Charles A. Hall, tbe
former foreman of the j asenger-car
repair shops of the Texas Pacific ra 1
road at Marshall. It was he whose
discharge from tbe strvice of tbe Texas
I'aouc railroad precipitated trie pres
ent labor revolt on ths Southwestern
railroad. A vear aeo Mr. Liall waa
attivs io tbe first great strike on tbe
Gonld Southwestern system, when
tbe men won aa increase of w'g4s
and bettsr torma geneially in their
relatione with the railroad. These
benefit were secured through tbe
Knights of Labor. Hail at that time
was quite conspicuous in the local
management of tbe strike at Marshall,
although he waa only an ordinary
wot k man id tha raxenger-car repair
shop. A few months a'tr tbe settle
ment oi that strike he waa piomotea
to the foremanship of tbe shop. He
was discharged on February 14th.
'I have every reawn to believe,"
add Mr. Hall a few dayj aso, "that
I was promoted to the loremanihtp,
became at that time I waa the mm.
competent person ot hand to take
clia'ge of the shop. I waa constantly
impressed, however, with the fact that
the railroad nad a grudge against me
on account of my activity in thestrilie,
and early this year felt Hire tt at the
tlli' u's wfra only waiting a piott-xt
to diecbarge roe and put in my place
someone a ho was not a Knight of
Labor. Mr. Wbeelock, one of the
officials under the receivers, indicated
aa much a day r.r two ago when, in
speaking of my csBe. hesiid: 'The
case of Ha 1 was a pait'cnlarly aggra
vated one. He made himself obnex
ions in the double of a yesr a 40, and
no oaly took him back for tbe sake of
peace. Hoping 10 encour'gs him and
secure his good will for the company,
we promoted him t) be foreman of
the car repiir shop. But be proved
more trouolesome than ever, and be
sides he wai Incompt tent.' Tbis shows
that there was a grudge against me
nd that the company was watching
me, and only waiting for soma pretext
t) turn me adrift. When, therefore,
I attended the Knights of Labor meet
ing of my rsiembly, Mr. Crcsbie, the
geneial shop foreman, who is a bitter
opponent of the order, was the instru
ment tbey usd to bring on this entire
trouble by discharging tee, on the al
legation that I was absent three days
without leave, although I can prove
by good men that I hid Groabie's per
mission to be gone one, two or three
days, sa circumstances would rtauire.
I told Mr. Groeble further, that if there
wai any objection to my being absent
I would not go and he said, 'That's all
right.' It wai a direct answer to my
question, snd was the only kind of
rei mission anybody got for leave of
absence, verbal consont. No one re
coived written permission, and as my
absence was only to attend a meeting
in my own town, veibal permission
was ail that I deemed necessary.
had been off a desen times, aud tha1;
was the only form of per nr sunn I had
ever received. After my discbarge the
Knights did all they could to have me
reinstated, but without avail. The
higher cflicials were appealed to, and
they would do nothing. They refused
to reuogniaa tbe Knights of Labor aa
an organisation that had a right to try
to secure the just treatment of ita
members. Alter the Knights bad ex
haut ted all bossible effort to arhitra,
tion, the strike came. No one regrets
it more than I do, because of the loss
and trouble the men who are out have
sustained and the inconvenience the
business public have experienced.
But tbe strike was right and founded
on iuttice and on toe broadest of prin
ciples. After Crosble bad positively
refused any concession whatever in
the premises, be and I met, and refer
ring to the matter he remarked: The
men in the sbop are not afraid of you,
and I want a man pver them they will
be afraid of ti which 1 replied: 'No.
tbank God, they are not afraid of me,
aud, I hope you will have to hunt a
long wbile before you and a man
whom they will fear.' This was my
lsst taiat wun Nr. uroDie.
Mr. Hall has many sympathiser in
Texas, lie is not a m stuerous mi
later, and was only a helpless inttrj.
mnt in bringing to a head the ques
tion at itue between the Knights and
the railroad companies. Tbe Knights
here ta ert that the discharge ot Hall
aai oaly an incident in tbe studied
policy of the ra lroa ls to crash out
all temblance of organisation among
their eropliyea, but the matters bad
reached such a pass tbat nothing more
than art incident like this was needed
to produce an cpan rupture.
Gov. Ireland arrived here this morn'
ing from the capital of the St ite, and
has been in consultation all the moru
ing with the railway cilkiala and the
miliary commanders. W hen the
Governor's train stopped at Waco on
its way here 'ait night, several strikers
mounted the engine and killed it.
Another engine wai procured snd the
train arrived tbis morning without
further hinderance. Gov. Ireland
said that he waa determined that the
lawlessness which has prevailed here
must cease, and that the railroad offi
cials must be permitted to run their
trains even if it required the assist
ance of every man in the State able
to bear arms to aid in accomplishing
thin end. , ''

refer to ceitain phases of Gonld which
Lis fli.t-'rers and toadies do not dwell
upon. The attempt to raiee Mr. Gould
ripen a pedettal of popnlaii y and to
labtilLim an honorable man is w.rt'iy
only cf a lnnatic cr knave. Io tbaone
case the work is a labor of love, in the
other for revenue or.ly. In neither
cute, however, is any one except tbe
individual wfco makes toe a'terupt
likely to be fooled. Wben h's time
come he will realist the fate of Barn
ham, Heath ai d others who were t nee
courted, and finally lured todestiuc-
tion by that very tquure man, Gould.
Tbe effort to make it appear th.t
Mr. Gould has laid the who e country
under a debt of kiia'itcde because of
his ac'.icn laU Sanday snd Moodav is
tbe product of unadulterated impu
dence. Let his intentions with n gtid
to tbe strikers have been what tbey
may, and let hia court e have been a
public benefit or wrong, tbere is cne
phase of hia; conduct which indira'ea
what manner ci man be is. Un Moo-
day mcrnicg nearly every paper in
the city announ cd thut the s riices
were ovtr, that Gould and Powderly
bad agreed to arbitration, arid all the
men were rriered to return to work.
Mr. Powderly may or may not bavd

no question that Mr. Gould did nt
mlsuudeiB ard wbat the pipers said.
cr,sf er rtaling them, fail to knowlhnt
Mr. rowdeiiv ftKU in:nnaen tcoa
him, if Gould tails the truth.
Take these facts then, at they can
not be denied. Did Mr. Gould, kn iw
ing that a misnnderstaudirg bad been
published, correct it piomptly 7 Not
lie. Brokeis known as "Gould bro
kcrtj" pnt in their appearance tt tbe
Stock Kxchange at the openirg Mou
day morning, and rxa ie a pretence of
bnyicg slocka at repidly advancing
prices. Did they buy on a misunder
standing, or did they hny at all T Tha
belief is tht t they sold every sbaro of
stock they could market while prices
wete moving upward. It was not un
til tbe afternoon that Mr. Gould gave
any inkling of the fact that tbe news
papers bad misstated the resu't of the
Sunday meeting. That Adonis of fi
nacc'al virtue which would-be valets
of Gould would make him at leaet
took advantage of the mil-understanding
even if he did not create it. Every
man who bought a share of etock on
Monday morning on published reports
of the settlement of the strike im
agines tbat Mr. Gould put np tbe job
that enabled him to be swindled.
We find the old trick revived rof
manufacturing a repntAtloa for Mr.
Gould by reciting the names of co-directors
with him in omt of his enter
prises, particularly Wet tarn Union.
The nsmesof President Depew of New
York Centre), President Roberts of
the Pennsylvania, President C. P.
Hunliugton of Central Pacific, Mr. H.
J. Jewett and others are mentioned ai
au indorsement pf Mr. Gould. We
notice, however, that all the courting
is on one side. While Mr. Goald is
vory anxious to have these gentlemen
in tbe directory of his companies, thry
never invite Mr. Gonld m o theirs.
They do not court Mr. G.iuld at all,
and tbere is cot the elinLtest Intimacy
between them aod l.im, which speaks
very plainly of the degree of confi
dence they put in him. It would be
very much to ask that every resecta
ble mau owning stock in a corpora
tion should sell it out whenever Mr.
Gould managed to get a contiolling
interest. Such a policy would make
Mr. Gould's bad reputation a mine of
wealth to him. It would be better to
hi oa than a big bank account on wide
margins; better even than misunder-
itindings with Knigbta of Labor,
But who are the men w ho herd with
Jay Gould and are his intimates?
You can look for them in the Exe
cutive Committee cf Western Union
in which is lodged the real control of
the compsny. We do not find any cf
the gentlemen mentioned above tbere.
Oh, no I We find Cyrus W. Field, at
present a martyr to an investigation in
Massachusetts; Russell Sage, tarred
with tbe rame stick ; George J. Gould,
son of ths old man; Alcnzo B. Cor
nell the bl'nd poolstu'esman ; Thomas
T. Eckert, whose corns pain when it
nins at Jay Gould's summer resi
dence ; and John T. Terry, who is a
Gould man all the time. Here are
seven men, Jay Gould making e!gbt,
out of the twelve who run Western
Union to suit Jay Gould. That vision
of virtue dotsu't risk his wealth on
tbe honesty of highly respectable
men not much. He sees to it that
he coatrols the business, although be
sneaks behind respectable names
when he can.

THE MEXICAN PENSION BILL
PASSED THE HOUSE.
Debate on Logan's Army Bill Con-
tinned in tbe Senate llou
Washington, April &.Houe.
After the call of the 8.ats f r the in
troduction for bills, the Speaker an
nounced the ncfioiahed business to be
ths motinn to susr.end tbe rules and
pass the Mexican pension bill. It was
sgreed tn ye a, 158; nays, 68.
The following is tue text oi tne Din :
Tbat the Secretiry of tbe Interior
he directed to place the names tf all
the surviving ofheerr. soldiers and
f a i lore who enlisted aud served in tbe
war with Mexico for any period dar
ing the years 1845, 1840, 1847 and
1818, aod were bouorably discharged,
and their surviving widow, on the
pension roll, at the rtte of 18 per
month, from and after the passage of
tb'a a t, during their lives.
Bee. 2. Tbat tbe Secretary ot tne In
terior is directed to make such inies
and regulations aa are necfB'ary
tn carry this set into effect:
Provided, That where it thill
appear that a discharge is lost,
setoodary evidence mey be permitted;
and where it shall appear an applicant
bai received a land warrant, tnatenaii
be sufficient evidence of an honorable
discharge, unless the evidence shows
that be procured it by fraud ; aud, pro
vided further, that this act shall cot
aptdy to pcrtons nnder political disa
bilities. Mr. Laird Neb. moved to suspend
the rules and rasa bill for the relief
of certa'n settlers snd purchasers of
lands on the public domain in tbe
States of Nebraska and Kansas. Agreed
to. (Ibis is similar to a bi 1 previously
paseed by tbe Senate)
Mr. Singleton Mifs. moved to sus
pend tbe rules and pass the Cjngres
ei'inal library bill. Agreed to veas,
159; nays, 62.
On motion of Mr. Savers Texas
Senate bill was passed for ths erectiou
of a public building at San Attonio,
Tex., with an amendment reducing
the appropriation from $200,000 to
The House then adjourned.
In tbe Sanate to-day Senator George
reported unfavoiably from the Com
mittee on Territories a bill to enable
the Northwestern Trading Company,
a private corporation, organized under
the general laws oi Oregon, to pur
chase certain lands in the Territory of
Alaska. The committee, Senator
George said, recommended the indefi
nite postponement tf the bill. Sana
tor Dolph asked tbat the bill be placed
on the calendar. He had expscted.
he stid, that tbe debate on the bill
would bring up the whole question of
the disposition of lands in Alaska, and
he still thought that question an im
portant one for Congress to look into

At Senator Dolph's request the bill
was placed on the calendar.
Senator Cameron offered a resolu
tion wLich was agreed to, appointing
Senator Khirjran, cbaiiman of the
Committee on Foreign Rulalions;
Senator Harrison, a member of the
same committee; Senator Spooner, a
member of the Committee on the Dis
trict of Columbia; Senator Stanford, a
member of the Civil Service Reform
Committee, and . Senator Mitchell
Ore., a member cf tbe Committee on
Additional Accommodation for the
Senator Piatt formally submitted his
proposed amendment to the resolu
tion heretofore introduced by him, in
relation to executive session. The
amendment recites specifically tbe
Senate rules affected by thereto ution.
Senator Pla't's object bei g to avoid
a point of order on hia resolution that '
it did cot recite the rules which it
proposed to amend. Tbe amendment
lies over under the rule, Senator Piatt
saying he hoped to add rasa the Senate
on the subject. . ,
The army bill was then placed be
fore the Senate, the pending question
being on Senator Hale's motion to
strike out section 2, which provides
that hereafter the army shall consist
of 30,000 men, and Senator Plumb
took the floor and continued his re
murks in opposition to the bill.
He (Senator Plumb) had recently
received a letter from "AnOldCiti
zsn" of New Yoik, censuring Senator
Plumb for his opoositiou to this bill.
The "Old Citixan" informed Senator
Plumb tbat there were 40,000 Socialists
in New York, and tbat the present
army would not afford the mince
meat. Senator Plumb Lad no doubt
this "Old Cit'zon" was a man of con
siderable wealth, and that as he as
quired wealth he neglected by degrees
his duty ss a citizen until now he feels
it beneath him to perform these
duties, while at the same time he
called .on the general government to
do for him what he had neg'ected to
do for himselL - This letter, Sanator
Plumb thought, fairly represented the
idtas on which the proposed increase
of the army was favored by some. , He
hoped the hill of the Senator from Il
linois (Senator Logan) for tbo equal
isation of bounties would be passed
before the ta'ariea aud emoluments of
the regular army were piled up to
high that there should be found no
more money in the treasury..
Senator Frye interposed with eome
remarks on his resolution about the
fisheries. He regarded it as very im
portant tbat the matter should be dis
cussed and settled. It involved a mat
ter, he said, that looked to war.
' Senator Cock re 11 then took the
floor in opposition to the army bilL
There was, he paid, ample power to
protect onr institutions without a sin
gle regular soldier. Our liberties did
not depend on a standing army, but
upon the- patriotism of our citisvns.
We needed no standing army in this
country. "Eternal vigilance Is the
price of liberty." A standing army
was a danger to any republic, and wai
in direct contravention oi the repub
lican system of government.
Senator Logan maintained that Sen
ator Plumb was inconsistent in oppos
ing the proposed increase of the army,
and in proof of this read from a report
made to Congress in December, 1878,
by a joint select committee of both
hou-ws, signed on behalf of the Senate
by Senatois Borcside and Plumb. In
this report a reorganiaition of the
army waa recommended and a bill far
tbe purpose introduced whh'h, Sens
tor Logan stated, provided fcr a greater
increase of the army than tbe bill now
before the SoDate. He inquired how
Senators could reconcile such. Sena
ter Logan spoke at considerable length
in further explanation of the details of
After aa executive session, the Sen-
1 ' adjourned.
