John F. llayes, member of the Una
oral Executive Board of the Kulghts
of Labor, returned to this city last
evening. lie says that no progress has
been made toward ecti lenient of the
difHcnltlos between the s'rikers of the
Uoald system and the railroad officials.
The caae Is now, however, in a shape
from whleh it is expected that when
tbe Congressional Committee reaches
St. Lonia and meets with the Citisens'
Committee thoee two bodies may be
Able to hit On some plan whereby
settloment may e efltscted. lie aays
the reports eeat out by the railroads
that they are handling all the freight
they waut to every day are untrue,
Tbe roads are all blocked np and what
freight is inn out goo under the pro
tection of deputy sheriffs and tbe mi
llt;a. The railroads claim and Mr.
Hay in admits that thoy have now all
the men to do the work they have lo
do, which is very li'.tle on account of
the blockade. There have been, he
says, 16,000 loaded rare standing in the
vards far l.iur week.
Mr. llayes stys that the uncalled
for miieracre of innocent people by
the deputy sheriff i was instigated by
the railroad auttmritios. They knew
they could not get the help of the
State mllitiu nntil somu act ftf violence
was committed. They therefiro got
together gang of roughs, who
brought on the trouble, ami the Gov
ernor then ordered the militia on the
cone. Ha further says that the law
yers employed by tne ICnights of
Labor have now in their posseseloa
ample evidence to convict prominent
officials of the Louisville and Nash
ville road of inciting ttiia riot. Being
asked his opinion of the Third Ave
nue, New York, strike, Mr. Hsyes said
that It was 6ne of these strikes ordered
by the district assembly without the
authority of. .the General 'Executive
Committee. The whole r-idrlt and In
tent of tbe order, said Mr. Have, is
opposed to the Idea of strikes and
boycotts, which have arisen because of
tbe want of lawa to prevent them. It
is in tiew of the great succets of
strikes and boycotts that the General
Executive Board have Juit called a
special session of the General Afncm
bly.to meet in Cleveland on May 2Hh,
to take action on the great question
brought up by the recent strikes and
boycott). An endeavor will be made
to prevent in the future auy such up
risings as am riow in piogreta with
' oat tlio authority of the Ueoeral As
sembly. Mr. lip. yea returns to Nt.

Naw Youk, April 23. Tho strike of
workmen in the Williamsburg sugar
refinance has boomed prices and the
consumers of sugar are paying the
fiddler for tho dance of the strikers.
Granulalod sugar was air tod at tile
on Saturday last ; yesUnlay it reached
7ic. . It is said that r rices are sure to
advance still higher. Tho stock ol re
fined sutfir amounts to practically
nothing. ButdtioHS has been slack and
dealers have been buying sugar in
quantities just sufficient-to supply the
deiosnds. Now Unit the country de
mands have increased, the strike has
caused prli cjt to advance out of pro
portion to the natural course ol trade.
Baw sugar waa quoted at 6 U-ltle on

Chlrf Secretary Turner of the
Eulghts of Labor as a WHiiess
Power of tbe Older.
Washjsqtom. April 23. The fourth
day's tension of the Hones Select
Committee ou the labor difficulties in
the Southwest was opened at 1 1 o'clock
this morning with the examination of
rtfZ "li
Mr. Frederick 6. Turner, general sec-
Labor. Mr. Uwayne waa again pres
ent to watch tbe proceedings in the
Interest of the railroad eompaniea.
Mr. Honew villa, of the Western Union
Telegraph Company, who yesterday
accompanied Mr. Gould, waa also pres
ent. Representative Warner of Ohio
waa introduced to and bad a long con
versation with Messrs. McDowell and
Tnrner. Tba latter is a short, stout
and rather, youthful-looking man of
Ir.rty years.
MR. TURNia'S TESTIMONY.
He described himself as a resident
of Philadelphia and aa secretary and
general treasurer of tbe K bights of
Labor. He had been a gold-leaf beat
er, but bad not worked at that busi
ness since 1870. He was now in the
grocery bus nens. He bad taken patt in
tbe attempt to arrive at a settlement
and waa preeer t at Mr. Povderly'e in
ter view with Mr. Gou'd. The sono
graphic report of that interview was
substantially corrict. There wan a
general talk about arbitration, and all
seemed pleeaed with the subject. It
was thought t) be the proper war cf
set'ling disputes.
In reply to Mr. Parker, he ftuted
that there were twenty-one district
assemblies of tbe Knights of Labor
in the United States, with about 60,000
local assemblies. In these local as
semblies there were from ten members
to 3000 members. Tbe Knights of
Labor bad no political object, and did
not seek to li fluence legislation. He
bad known of no such movement on
tbelr part
Mr. Parker banded to the witness a
petition in favor of the unlimited
coinage of standard silver dol'a s, pur
porting to be signed by 700 local as
semblies. Mr. Tumor stated that be had never
teen or heard of tho petition before,
but that the oiganiaationdid not deny
the right ol any assembly to petition
Congress. It was not responsible ai a
bod v for the action of particular as
semblies. This movement in favor of
the unlimited coinage of silver waa
not a general movement of the
Knights of Labor.
Mr. Buchanan, after examining the
petition, stated that he thought the
petition could be traced to societies
outside and unconnected with tbe
Knights of Labor
Mr. Turner went on in reply to
questions from Mr. Ciain to describe
the interview which he and bis col
league, Mr. Bailey, bad had With Mr.
Hoxie in St. Lou's, He caid that Mr
Hoxie a treatment of them was very
diecourteous; that he stated that he
would have no conversation with
them ai officers of tbe Knights of
Labor, but that be would receive them
as American cit'juns. They informed
htm that they did not desire to stand
on thttr (tignitv. and were wuuok to
talk with him eg private citizens; that
all they wanted was to have tbe tron
ble settled, peace restored and tbe
men set back to work.
Mr. train Waa tbe strike over
then?
Mr. Tamer None of our people
were at work : the strike was not over.
Tbe Chairman In your atatement
you uiod toe word "order" in refer
ence to tne men going back to work
I want to know whether the central
power of your organisation can order
men ti work or order them to quit
work t
Mr. Tamer The general laws do
not contemplate strikes.
The Chairman That is not the
question.
Mr. Turner (beeiiatingly) Well. I
do not understand that if we issued an
order for men to go to work they
would refuse to go no matter who or
dered tbein out.
Mr. Orain You have no power to
order a strike, have yon T
Mr. Turner Yes.
Tbe Chairman (with an air of sur
prise) Yoa have?
Mr. Turner Yes. Tbere is no law
in our constitution governing strikes,
We do not believe in strikes.
Mr. Grain Then where do you de
rive your power to order strikes I
Mr. Turner We have r.ot the pow
er, directly, to order a strike, but we
have the power to approve or disap
prove a stiike.
M r. Crain Was this strike approved
or disapproved"
Mr. Turner We never knew any
thing about it until we received the
telegram from Mr. Hopkins.- It has
never been approved.
Mr. Crain 1 hen I suppose the pow
er is vested in you to direct men to re
turn to work r
Mr. Turner Yes.
Being questioned on the subject of
arbitration. Mr. Turner said be had
read the Presidsnt's message on that
point to-iay, and thoroughly agreed
with it. He believed that there should
be some fixed tribunal of arbitration,
not one raised on the si ur of the mo
ment. He thoroughly believed In ar
bitration, and would like to see arbi-
tra'ion compulsory.
, Mr. Ciain Suppoae the arbitrators
reported that the Knights of Labor
shonld go to work at $1 a day when
they wanted $1 50, are you willing, as
an American citlien, to aay that you
wonld ask your fellow-members ot the
Knights ot Labor to abide by that f
. Mr. Turner If I entered iuto- an
agreement to abide by arbitration I
ould submit to tbe award.
MR. M'DOWXLL
was recalled, and made a statement (in
the line of one of Mr. Gould s sugges
tions veatrr.lavi aa to the nronrietv of
having railroad engineers and officers
licensed bv the general government
He favored that finding au analogy for
it in the licensing ot suaimitiip cap
tains aud pilots, these men were
bonnd to brisg their vs?els into poit,
and so railroad engineers should be
bound to bring their engines to their
d.s'ii a'ion. The laws governing in
teinational cemmerce were drawn up
with cie.it care. The railreaJa had
come in and taken the place largely rf
that kind of commerce, and interstate
oomnierce 1 y rail could and should he
governed by the earns sort of laws.
As to arbitia'ion it must necessarily
be volui.tiry. It seemed to htm that
the d tlr.'iiee between the President.
i;nd tho House on tl nt eutject was p.s
t j the arp -it-t:nent of the third arbi
trator. Toe selection by a United
Judge tha President seemed to regard
an unusual thing.
Mr. Crain Kvidently the President
had rot rt ad the bi 1 as it passed the
House, There is nothing ot that kir.d
in it. An arbitrator U to be appoint
ed on eat h side and the two are to
select a t'.lild.
Mr. 13ucbau.au la other w . rd the
APPEAL SATURDAY, APRIL 24. 188G.
President's criticism was of a bill not
paeeed by the House.
Kelernng to a remark maoe yetter
day by Mr. Hopkins as to prominent
persona connected with the Knights of
La'ior having been seen around stock
broken' efflcee, most positive denials
of all Btock speculations were made
by Mai are. Powderly, McDowell and
Turner.
MB. THIOD3M r. BYNOgB
of Centre county, Ta., made an appral
to the committee on behalf of the
miners in Pennsylvania, Maryland and
West Virginia, that tbe committee
should have its powers enlarged so as
to investigate the trouble in the min
ing regions. The Chairman said tbe
committee would, on its return, ask to
& ArajS fwi?h the9Pr"sid
dent'a measure except that it did not
go far enough. There should be soma
power in tba government .to prevent
interruption of railroad ttavel by the
quarrels of railroad owners and their
employee.

Strike and Lawkawtw Daring the
Year l0.
OT . iniiti.nu All HO Thft art.
vanne sheets of the report of Joceph
U. Weeks, expert and special agent of
tbe Census Bureau, upon strikes and
lockouts occurring within the United
States duriDg the calendar year of
IShO have been received by the In
terior Department. The records show,
be savs, that many strikes aid lock
outs still grow out ol the most trivial
causes. It Is eh o true, especially io
localities where large bodies of work
men are gatberei, that there will al
ways be found men who.too frequent
ly Irani sinister end mercenary bio
t.vee, create distentions and endoavor
to inaugurate strikes. When strikes
are in projrees their duration is liable
to be prolonged by tbe efforts of such
pei sons. let the tendency, as stated,
is toward lees fiequent strikes and
lockouts. The number ol strikes in
certain of the prominent trades, as
given in the report, is as follows: Iron
and steel industries, tM; coal mining
158; textile trade, 46; cigar,
making, 42; building trades 36;
transportation, 36 ; printing trades, 28 ;
gla'S industries, 27; piano making, 14 ;
boot and shoe making, 11. Much tbe
greater portion (71 pel cent) of the
strikes and lockouts reported npon
were caused by diflerene-a as to rates
of wages. A total of 603, or 86 per
cent, of those relating to rates of
wages, or 62 per cent, of all, were for
an advance, and 77, or 14 per cent. Of
those relating to rates of wages, or 9
per cent, ot all. were against a reduc
tion. Strikes growing out of demands
for an advance are much more uni
formly peaceful than those against a
roduction. In conditions of trade that
justify an advance it is much more to
the interest of the employer to give
In than to have his works stop. Of
the 813 strikes the tesulti of 481, or 59
per cent., are given. Ol these 1(19, or
35 per cent., weie successful, 85, or 13
per cent., were compromised, and i'Sl.
or 47 percent., were unsuccessful.
it will be noted that while the
larger number of strikos, 503 out of
713, were for an advance in wagep, a
larger proportion of strikes for this
cause were succeeslul than for any
other important classes. Of the 307
strikes f ot an advance, of which tbe
ret u ts are given, 127, or 41 per cent.
were aucceseiui ; .', or M per cent..
were compromised, and 118, or 39 per
cent, were unsuccessful. On the other
hand, of the 45 strikes cr lockouts
whore the demand was egainet a re
daction insisted on by the employer,
three of those which the result is
given were successive, 18 were com
promised and 34 were unsuccessful
Of the other classos, those involving
questions relating to the payment of
wages were qmti uniformly success
ful. Out of the iO strikes in connection
ith the payment of wages which the
risulta are given, 11, or 55 per cent,
were aucceseiai, six were com pro
cesiful. Un tbe other band, every
atrike in connection with hoars of
labor, of which the result is given,
was unsuccessful. In questions rela
ting to administration and methods of
work tbe strikers were, as a rule, un
successful. Of the 813 stoppages by
causes reported npon 610, or 88 per
cent, were strikes : 85, or 12 per cent.
were lockouts. Of the 610 classified
as strikes the results of 369 are given
Of these 143, or 39 per cent, were sue
cexful ; 156, or 42 per cent, were un
successful and 70, or 19 per cent, were
compromited. Ul the No lockouts
that are classed the results of 52 are
given. Ol those 10, or 19 per cent
were successful; 34, or about 65 per
cent, were unsuccessful; while 8, or
about 15 per cent , were compromised.
From 414 of the 76'- of tbe strikes re
ports weie received, showingitho num
ber of the idle in those cases to have
been 128.262, making an average of
about 310 men to tHch etrike.
Tbe repoit co a eludes: "As to wages
lest, it appears 'hat 04,79 employes
lost $3,71 1,097. This wonld be at the
rate of f )7 each. A the entire num
ber of employee estimated was 228,138
the tctal loss of wage ou this average
would be il3.O03.tih6, which would
have been received bad the woik run
constantly. Of course there would be
a number of oflgets to this. In case
tbe strikes wero euccefHul, the addi
tional wages would compensate tor
portion ef this loss. In other easee
where umouisaa existed in the trades
in which there were strikes, tbe men
received strike pay or strike benefits
but the etrike benefits were, in most
cases, simply refunding money that
bad been pieviously paid. Then, in
many cases, the parties on etrike se
cured employment in other industiiee.
and bence their actual loss would be
what wagas they would have earned
at their old laber, minus what they
did earn in presumably lees profitable
employment."
Nntar Bwh'a Idea f Labor
tannlwloa.
Washington, April 23. Senator
Beck is outspoken in piaise of the
President's mestage on the labor ques
tion. He rays if he could have his
way he won'M name Alleu (4. Thur
m in, Joeph E. McDonald and R jscoe
Con kling as labni' commissioners, and
give them JIO.COU a rear. Such a
commission would command the re
spect ' f all p:.i ties, and would settle
the labor troubles.
