The Chairman A to th re any in
junctions on the Knig'its of Labor
tinder which the public could not
know all that you have stated ?
Ihe witness I do not undernfand
that there is anything in the rules ol
the organisation which prohibit any
member from telling just the facts
that have been brought out by your
u remponse to question by Mr.
Crain the witness mado a statement

to arbitrate Id t Ween lh Kn'.uU "of
Labor. repwBfmted by Mr. Powderly,
tad the Missouri Pacific, represented
by Mr. Goa'd. He read the letters
which passed between those gentle
men on March 27 and which have
already been published.
The witness not having a copy of
one ol trie letters una. bwayne rose
and said, that as counsel for the rail
road company, he would be glad to
supply the copy,
Mr. Buchanan said that while he
did not object to the admiaaion of
papers in the possession of anybody,
he did not wish it to be uudtirstocd
that the committee had taken any
action in regard to pnrticj being pres
ent by connsel.
The Chairman We have no cotin
Gen. Swnyne apologized for having
addretsed the committee in the capac
ity of counsel ; he thought it was an
understood thing that counsel was in
attendance. The witness then pro
ceeded with his statement.
Allur delivering Mr. Powderly's
second letter to Mr. Gould he bbw Mr.
Gould personally, and that gentleman
expressed a desire to see Mr. Powder
in ..J 1,1,,11.. !,.. .I--
They mt Mr. Gould on the fallowing
day. Mr. Hopkins joined in lha in
terview. Mr. Gould expressed him
self fo strongly in favor of arbitrating
the differences that it seemed, to wit
ness, that an agreement was sure to be
reached. They met again in the even
ing, and Mr. Gould produced and read
to Mr. Powdarly, as a result tf the
morning conversation, a telegram he
proposed to send to Mr. Hoxie. Mr.
Gould read the telegram down to the
woida "We see no objection to arbi
trating any difficulties between the
employes and the company past or
futqiv," and then asked Mr. Powderly
if it was satisfactory, "Bo far," Mr,
Powderly answered. Mr. GouiJ said :
'Then 1st it end there." The witness
suggested that Mr. Gould should put
the telegram t lit j the form of a letter
to Mr. Powderly, and Mr. Powderly
agreed that if the General Executive
Board approved of the rest of the let
ter the men would be ordered back to
work. After Mr. Powderly left Mr.
OoulJ placed Uiu letter in wit
ness's hand with the understanding
that it the order t o go to work was
issued ti e order and the letter
weie to be given to the press thnt
night. Toward the end of the inter
view Mr. Gould received a telegram
which seemed to disturb him and said
thtrj was something wionst iu (St.
Louis. The witness said: "Don't at
this stage split hairs. Tell Mr. Hoxie
in taking the men back tow. rktj
that pud. Mr. Gould wiahed to see Mr.
Powderly, but that gentleman could
nctg), ami witness attl Mr. Turner
went to see Mr. Gould with the ques
tion from Powderly: "Do 1 uuder
stand from your personal let'er of this
date that your company refuses arbi
tration and must I so telegraph to
Martin Irons?" i Mr. Gould was not
in and Mr. Hopkins answered bv say
ing: "No; we do not. He is not so
to underttind that letter."
Mr. Buchanan inquired whether iu
fact an order for the men to go to
work had been issued by the Execu
tive Board as a result ol the negotia
tions and correspondence.
Witness replied that such an order
bad been issued on the evening of
March 2Mb.. The order was piedi
cated, be said, on the correspondence
and on . the undtirstauding that an
actual tolulion had beeu arrived at.
It was not until noon ol the utit day
that any suggestion cf a misunder
standing had reached him. The ulti
mate result was that three members of
the Kxecutive Board went to S:. Louis
Mr. Hays could not tell the committee
what took place there. Witneaa was
not present. Another attempt was
made at New York, through Oyrns W
Field.to bring about a conclusion, but
Mr. Burns Have yon sufficient evi
dence to enable vou to state that the
men on s'rike at St. Louis would have
promptly obeyed the order to resume
work if Mr. llcxie had complied with
toe order sent to bim by Mr. Gould.
Witness I have not the slightest
donot ol it-
Mr. Burns Have you any evidence
tending to show any secret instruc
tions from Gould to Hoxie inconsist
ent with his teli graph dispatch em
bodied in his letter to Mr. Powderly?
Witness Nothing except the allu
sion in Powderly's lpatch to the
"letter of instructions" that and the
order issued on the line.
v Mr. Crain What was the original
cause of the strike?
Witness in reply to this question
made long statement, involving the
difference between the principle of
payment of day work and piece work,
and tuoted Gc aid as saying that by
making a change of that sort in the
Western Dnicn Telegraph Company
he bad effected a saving of 80 per
cent He ' ceded that the general
came of this strike and of recent
strikes all ovei the co unrrv had been
the successful strike on the horse-tar
lines in New York but February, that
ha 1 commanded fuch universal public
sympathy that workmen, whenever
they had a grievance or wrong, j jined
together and made applications to
form assemblies of Kuigh'sof Labor.
This wan eo general O at the order
had increased more in the month of
Februa-y last than it had in the prior
eight years. As an a idit'or.al reason,
be alleged the universal system of
watering railroad eto k, which made
it necessary for railroad managers to
eciew down the rates of labor as mnch
as possil la.
, Mr. Crain asked what remedy be
could suggest for that, -
Wit was replied that the remedy
was te enforce the law. The law of
veryMta'e required that dollar for
dollar should be paid for railroad
stock, but that provision of lsw was
evaded by the railroad managers form
ing themselves into a credit mobilier
and a Cons ruction Company and is
suing to themselves $100 of stock for
every fl or $10 of work.
The Cbairmau And your theory is
that tho exactions made upon the
men employed nn the road arc caused
by the attempts to enable the railroad
cioipiiniea to pay dividends on wa-
tumi tu: !
Witueae Tha. is the theory, and
there Is groat irritation about it all
over the country.
Mr. Grain la there no way In your
orKaniiitiob by wh'.ch the action of a
District Assembly ordering a strike
ran be pased npon by the Kxecu'ive
Cjinniitee bef ire the strike is per
mitted? WitnessThere is no law ol the or-
ennis ition on the subject. This whole
thing was unexpected and unprepared
for. The whole epirit of the organiza
tion is contrary t j strikes. It has an
educational (jiei n'z ition.
Mr. Crin Dj yon not think (it has
so struck met that Mr. Gould himself
was verr firly disposed toward your
Witness TLat has been my full
impression from what I taw of him.
My impression was that he wanted to
be fir; that he intended to be fair. It
has always ssemed to roe that Mr.
tloxm Zr. ! r m BOra.
wuigo. UO wai unwilling to come
d0T, and that when Mr. Gould found
him rebellious in not carrying out the
arul'rauoa he ouiint to have issued a
Eositive ordr ti that effect, or possi
ly bad Mr. Hoxie resign. But he
turned round and split hairs with the
committee. He had agreed to arbi
trate everything, past, present and
future; but be would not take this
special arbitration out of Mr. Uoxie's
Mr. Crain You mean that Gould
permitted himself to be controlled by
Witness That is the way it has ap
peared to me. Still I cannot under
stand the letter of instiuctions
offered by Mr. Hoxie.
Mr. Cruin With the exception of
thnt, eiicuimtnnco, which seems sus
picious, your impression is that Mr.
Hoxie is the responsible party for the
continuance of the strike?
WitatsE Yep, sir. I never met
him personally, but, from talking
with thoie who nave met him. I am
s r ingly inclined to that opinion.
Mr. Buchanan A statement has
been in ado in the newspapers to the
effect that you and Mr. Gould were
working this maiter together for the
purpose of Its effect upon tha stock
market. I do not wish to humiliate
vou enough to ask you if that be true,
but I simply mention the fact so as to
allow you to make any explanation
The Witness I never saw any state
ment to thai effect; I never had any
acquaintance with Mr. Gould until I
met him la connection with this mat
ter; I have never bought or sold a
share of stock on a margin. There is
not a word of p ossible troth in the
Mr. Burns Do you think that the
system of pooling the earnlnge of the
railroads bad anything to do with the
strike? i '
Wits -INo. The mofet economical
management is that which necessi
tates the least expenditure. The gen
eral theory eu to the building up of
new lines of railroads, causing com
petition and reducing rates, is a grand
mistake. Business should be done
with the least possible investment,
not only of labor, but of capital; sud
until the possibilities of a single rail
road are exhausted a second line
Bhould not be built. But there is
lomething in the way of government
supervision of railroads, by means of
hieh the dpih H a resulting from non
competition shall not inura alone to
the railroad company but to the whole
people. Take, for instance, two cities
like Bnffa'o at.d New York. The New
York Central had a line of railroad
between those two cities, and had a
monopoly of the business. It cost
that company 00 per cent, to operate
the road, leaving 40 per cent, of net
earnings. Another line was built
along side, sod there yott have got 100
per cent, of expenses. If the
thing could be regulated so that
one railroad should do the busi
ness it would get not only a fair
ritoro of its capital but it would be
enabled to give lower rateB of traffic
and bettor wages to its employes.
Mr. Burns There being already
two riilrciUs built and beimr ooerated.
is it better for a majority of the work
ing people ol the country that there
should be competition Letweon those
two lines, or that there should be a
pooling of their earnings ?
WiUiess It would be better that all
tho business should be done ou the
one 10 ul at the minimum of cost, and
that the benefits of it should go cot
alone to the owners of the road, but
to the country at large. In other
worde, you must not double expenses
in orucr to got economy.
nr. iiuins would you then sug
gest the abandonment of one line of
road and the concen'ratiou of all the
business on the other?
WittietE I certainly should..
Mr. Burns That would reduce the
number ol employes one-half.
Witness Yee, 'it would; but they
would immediately rind employment
in other walks of life where they
would not be living by a tax upon the
country. I do not think there is a
railroad in America which has been
pressed to half its carrying capacity.
Mr. Parker Does not the trouble
arisi partly from competition of labor
ers? Is not that ons of the bottom
sources of all this trouble?
Witness No: you will find that the
greatest difficulty ban not been a de
mand for increase of wages.
Mr. Parker I would like to hear
your views as to an adjustment of this
competition in labor.
Witness The subject is a verv
broad one, and it is one which bus
been the subject of discussion since
thepe troubles began. One of the best
suggestions thst has been made to me
on the subject I wonld like to repeat
It is that a conference should take
p'ace between representative men
frrm the labor ognizatioDS and rep
resentative men f on trade organizt
tions; tbat they should meet and
thoroughly disco ts the whole subject.
As to this c-n'eet between capital and
labor, I look npon them a being nec
essarily p rtners, as much so as man
and wife. Such a discussion as tbat
would be approached by railroad men
in a different spirit from that which
they would manifest in a ditcuis!on
with subordinate brakemen. In this
way there would be gathered the wis
dom of able men who have been
thinking oyer the subject. I don't
feel th it I have had enough experi
ence to be able to lecapitu at a the re
suits of cuch a conference.
The Chairman Do you think that
the time has arrived when this coun
try will be compelled to f ay who may
come to it and who may not come ?
Witness It does seem to me tbat
our capacity to absorb Chrittsndom is
somewhat strongly taxed.
Mr. Buchanan We sre troubled as
much by pagan as by Christendom.
was then recalled and gave a history
of the Knights of Labor. The organi
sation, he said, was intended to take
in not only the man tbat worked at
the bench, but every man who toiled
by hand or train in any honest occu
pation. We left out one or two occu
pations, lawyers and bankers, because
we fslt they were fully capable of
tak ng cire of themselves.
The Chairman How sbjut preach
Mr. Powderly Once in a whllo we

but from the organization.

of all kinds of people who toil aud is

Mr. Powderly Yes; it is entirely
within the law.
Mr Parker What is the number of
the present membership.
Mr. Powderly Our present mem
bership does not exceed 500 000, al
though we bave been credited with

membership of 1300, and from the
day of the oran'zalion to the present
day a single expulsion or suspension
has never taken place. They manaie
their affairs in such a way as to reflect
credit upon them, and to be a pattern
for the men.
Mr. Crain Do you make any differ
ence as to the admission of colored
men into the organisation?
Mr. Powderly We make no dis
tinction in regard to color, creed, sex
or condition, We have one assembly
in New Y'ork where the president is a
Roman Catholic, the vice-president a

tho witness, "that I did not come to
