The Vanderbilt Strike Ends
In a Fizzle.
Traffiic Resumed on the New
Nearly All Trains Again Running;
on Schedule Time.
The Engineers and Firemen Refused to
Join the Strikers—lncidents
of the Strike.
Associated Tresa Dispacches. |
New York, August 11— Vice-Pres
ident Webb, of the New York Central,
says he is confident tbe backbone of the
strike is broken. At oo'clockthis after
noon there was much to sustain his
position. At this end of the line every
thing seems to be working the com
pany's ways. Danger of serious trouble,
however, is at Albanj and Syracuse, and
points beyond. Reports this morning
said the strikers at those places were in
an ugly mood. At Syracuse several
companies of militia are under arms
ready to move to any threatened point,
while at Albany there is a large force of
Pinkerton men, whose presence is like
ly to lead the strikers to acts of violence.
An interview with Chief Arthur of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
reports him as saying the engineers on
the Central will not strike unless they
have grievance; that they have nothing
in common with the firemen's or con
Passenger Trains Kunning.
The officials of the New York Central
and Hudson River railroad announce
the fact that there is now no interrup

the New York Central, all through pas

The Chicago mails due at 6:45 this
morning, reached here at 2 :o0 this after
noon ; also the Chicago mails that were
due Sunday evening. The train from
Chicago, due at 11:30 this morning, and
which contains the weßtern mails and
those of trans-Atlantic connections, liad
not readied here up to five o'clock. All
other mails were more or less late.
Slowly "Petering Out."
All through the night and early
morning, it looked as though the strike
on the New York Central was slowly but
surely "petering out;" nevertheless
both parties, so far as words went, at all
events, were as stubborn as ever. The
Buffalo express, a newspaper train,
moved out on time at 5 a. m., and be
fore 7 o'clock two trains had been sent
out over the Harlem division. Soon
after the announcement was made that
all trains would be run today. Police
arrangements remain the same as yes

Vice President Webb contradicted the
statement made last night that the fire
men had struck. He declared that all
passenger trains were runing fully man
ned. Everything, he declared, was in
fine shape all along the road except at
Syracuse, where proper protection was
not accorded, and he had telegraphed
-Governor Hill 'for troops. He added:
"Arrangements are being perfected for
moving freight to-day."
The First Freight Train.
The first freight which moved since
the strike, lift yesterday for Albany at
9a. m. No opposition was made by the
strikers, as a heavy guard of police was

the first shipment of freight was made is

At 10 o'clock everything was in good
shape at the Grand Central Depot. There
was, no statement around the Depot,
except that large members were applying
for work at the temporary employment
The Firemen Did Not Go Out.
Vice-president Webb said regarding
the statement in the morning papers
that the firemen had been called out,
that an order calling them out had been
issued a fey days ago, but had tfx-n
disregarde 1 by both engineers and fire
men. "I aave every reason to believe,"
added Mr. Webb, '"'that neither engi
neers nor firemen will go out." The
number of trains to leave Grand Central
depot today, is 120, the customary num
ber leaving on week days is 138. The
trains which have been' suspended are
local trains, and oi comparatively little
importance. So far to-day no incoming
freight has arrived at any of the yards.
The West Shore road is handling New
York Central incoming freight. Every
train which left the depot this morning
was promptly on schedule time, which
will be observed all day."
All Oatet at De Witt,
Albany, N. V., August 11. —Governor
Hill had a consultation with some of the
strike managers to-day, and after listen
ing to their grievances, he called their
attention to the situation at De Witt,
and asked that all the hostile demon
strations there be stopped, and they
promised that his request should be
complied with. The company has now
peaceably resumed possession of its
property at that place, and its trains are
running through there without molesta
tion. It is doubtful whether any troops
will be now needed, unless an unexpect
ed change in the situation occurs.
Adjutant General Porter has received
word that everything is quiet at De
Witt. Passenger trains are moving.
A Kick Against Plnkertong,
A committee from the Knights of La
bor waited on Deputy Attorney General
Whittaker today, and inquired as to the
right of a central road]to employ Pinker
ton detectives to guard its property.
Whittaker told the committee that the
company had a perfect right to protect
its property and hire agents for the pur

here. He said eight had so far dropped
off and tiie Brotherhood engineers re
fused to work with any but union fire
men, and would not go to New York
with green men. Superintendent Bissel
whe"n asked about the matter emphati
cally denied the rumor. He said every
train which came either from the West
or the South passed through Albany
with the same crew with which they
came. Not a passenger fireman had left
the service today.
The Stench of Decaying Beef.
The freight train wluch left New York
at 11 o'clock today, arrived at East
Albany at 0 o'clock, and will not be sent
any further west for the present. AVhen
the train drew into tbe station, there
was a crowd of 000 there, but they
did not molest the train or crew. No
attempt will be made to move freight
out of the West Albany yards until ad
ditional I'inkerton men arrive. The
train which blocks the upper railroad
bridge, is still lying there, and the
stench which arises from the decaying
dressed beef, is sickening.
A Wreck Narrowly Averted.
At tiie superintendent's office it was
said freight would be started west to
morrow morning. At West Albany, be
low Black Rock, the Western express
had a narrow escape from being wrecked
today. The switch at this point was
half open when the train came along at
lightning speed. Happily the engineer
noticed the switch was misplaced and
succeeded in stopping his train just in
time. The assistant superintendent
said the switch had been left open by
one of their own men, and a danger sig
nal was flying, which was not observed
by the engineer.
The Situation at Syracuse.
Syracuse, N. V., August 11, — All is
quiet. The railroad trouble is confined
to the yards at East Syracuse, which
seems to be the present key of the situa
tion. The Central authoritie today
began running all their passenger trains
over the West Shore. Pinkertou men
are acting as deputy sheriffs, and three
companies of militia are at the armory in
this city awaiting orders The. fifth battey
moved out this morning but was ordered
back. It is reported that at East Syra
cuse an order has been issued ordering
tbe engineers and firemen out, and that
Chief Arthur is expected here within
the next twelve hours, but tiie report
At Other Points.
Buffalo, N. V., August 11 —The situ
ation on the central road is unchanged.
The strikers are few in number and are
quiet. Trains from the east are coming
in several hours late. The Chicago
limited, due at 8:35 last night, got here
at 5 this morning, and at 10 :110 o'clock
was still standing at the depot.
Jersey City, N. J., August 10. —There
no change to-day in the situation at any
of the railroad depots in this city. There
was not the least sign of trouble. The
men employed in the yards said a strike
was not probable.
Chicago, 111., August 11. —Agents of
the New York Central are hiring brake
man and switchmen here and sending
them on. Pinkertons are also hiring
men to guard the Central tracks.
About 200 negroes and perhaps a score
of white men attended a mass meeting
tonight in the interest of the federal
election bill. Speeches were made by
Representative Kerr, General Chalmers,
Jno M. Langston and others. The reso
lutions adopted recite that the South is
greatly indebted to the negro, but he is
deprived by the southern democrats of
his vote by every means in their power.
The resolutions then urge the passage of
the federal election bill, approve Presi
dent Harrison's administration and the
work of the present congress, express
admiration for Speaker Reed and the
Republican press and tender thanks to
Arthurs'* and Powderly's Views.
Cleveland, August 11. —Chief engi
neer Arthur of the Brotherhood of Engi
neers, when asked today concerning his
views of the strike said: ''There is
really nothing I can say on the part of
the engineers, because they are not in
volved. I have received no official in
formation whatever, not even as to the
cause of the strike. The engineers
would not neccessarily be involved even
if the firemen should join with the
Scranton, Pa., August 11. —General
Master Workman Powderly says the
New York Central strike will probably
be considered at a meeting of the gener

and firemen will join the strike.
The Central Strike Ended.
During the afternoon and evening the
Grand Central depot was as quiet as
though no strike had occurred. Trains
were continually arriving and leaving,
and the entire business of tbe depot had
resumed its normal condition. Vice
Presedent Webb said at 9 o'clock this
evening and at midnight that the situa
tion was the same, that so far as the
New York Central was concerned the
strike was ended. The entire passenger
and freight service will be resumed to
morrow ,and all trains will leave on sched

open for the reception of western

TUESDAY MORNING, .AUGUST 12, 1890.
The Senate Debate Drags
Sherman Is Impatient to Get
1 Through and Go Home.
Teller Wants a Fair Discussion If It
Takes All Summer.
The Kansas Senators Continne Their
Opposition to the Senate Measure.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, August 11.—In the sen
ate today, after routine business, the
'tariff bill was taken up, the pending
question being Plumb's amendment to
reduce the additional duty on iron or
steel hoops cut to lengths of bailing pur
poses from two-tenths to one-tenth of a
cent per pound. The amendment was
rejected, three Republicans, Ingalls,
Paddock and Plumbvoting in the affirm
McPherson moved to amend the para
graph by making the duty on iron or
steebjhoops five per cent ad valorem in
stead of one cent, one and one-tenth
cents, and one and three-tenth cents per
Sherman spoke of the little progress
that was being made with the bill.
Nearly three weeks, he said, had been
spent upon it, and not one-fifth of it
had been disposed of. Unless the
senators on the other side would be
satisfied with one vote upon a question,
and would then go right along, the
senate would have to continue in per
petual session. He did not wish to see
any change in the rules of the senate if
it could be avoided. If the other side
would forego the needless repetition of
amendments, and of yea and nay votes,
the senators might soon see daylight and
soon be able to go to their respective
homes. The bill had passed the house
and been considered by the senate
finance committee, its general outlook
being on the scale of the protective
tariff. Even the high protective tariff
Republican senators did not deny that.
It was a tariff that wouldjprotect Ameri
can industries and build up nearly all
the industries that could be employed in
this country. It was a pretty high pro
tective tariff, and there were points in it
which he .would be willing to yield.
Still, it had been reduced in several im
portant particulars below jjthe bill passed
the senate two years ago. It seemed
that the senate ought to make more
progress with tbe bill.
Vest said the senator from Ohio had
stated that the bill was acceptable to
his side of the chamber. The record
did not show that to be a fact; on the
other hand the most aggressive attacks
made upon the bill had come from that
side of the chamber, and from the state
that had given the largest majority for
theßepublican party in the last election.
The record would also show that a pro
portionately larger number of Demo
cratic senators responded every time the
roll had been called. He gave notice
that every item in the bill would be dis
cussed, if necessary, unless it was pre
vented by force applied in some sort of
The discussion having turned on sepa
rate farming property, a statement was
read by Vest as to business depression
in some of the best farming counties in
Pennsylvania, and Cameron remarked
that while the statement was correct,
the tariff was not, in his opinion, the
cause of it; the cause was the demone
tization of silver in 1873. Ever since
that act the price of land and farm pio
duce had decreased. Since the passage
of the silver bill prices had risen some
20 per cent. '
Teller said that as to the question of
haste in passing the bill, he was not dis
posed to deny its opponents a fair and free
discussion. He was willing to stay and
discuss the tariff question or allow" it to
be discussed, because he believed the
American people wanted to know wheth
er the bill was a proper revision of the
Finally a vote was reached on Mc-
Pherson's amendment, and it was re
jected without division.
The paragraph relating to tinned piate
having been reached, Vest said it was a
bold, naked attempt by Pittsburg manu
facturers to create another monopoly in
their own interests against the consum
ers of the United States. He moved to
reduce the rate 2 2-10 cents per pound,
to one cent, the present duty.
Edmunds asked leave to offer an order
to be printed, and to go over. It is to
the effect that during consideration
of the tariff bill, no senator shall speak
more than once, and not longer than 5
niinutes, on or in respect of any one
item, or any one amendment, without
leave of the senate such leave is to be
granted or denied without debate, and
without any other motion or proceeding,
except such as relate to procuring a quo
rum.' The unit bill shall be gone through
with, to the point of its third reading,
No general motion in relation to it,
other than to take it up, is to be in or
der. All appeals are to be determined
at once and without debate.
Finally Edmunds withdrew the order,
saying he would present it again to

How He Did Up Colorado Banks and
Denver, August 11.— E. F. G. Hall,
representing himself as a contractor of
the Nicaragua canal, travelling West for
his health, is wanted here for passing
forged drafts on New York banks for
nearly $5,000. The same man visited
Glenwood Springs in July and swindled
banks and merchants out of $3,500 by
the same means. His plan of operation
was to gain the confidence of a prom
inent citizen who would introduce him
to the banks and merchants. He then
makes a deposit in a bank and issued
drafts which were promptly paid. He
would then deposit a draft for a large
amount, drawn by a Kansas bank upon
a bank in New York, get a part pay

all of his deposits, and with considerable
jewelry paid for with forged paper,
leave the town before his crookedness
