ago, that tho committee of tho Feder
ation did not givo the managomeut
time onouh to contidar the soak
Thoy wantod time to compare with
tho wages on other systems, and the
employes would only allow until Do
comber 25. Commenting on this, ono
of tho strikers said to a News repor
ter yesterday, that tho rocoivers had
time plenty to decide that thoy
would not Eign tho contract and
that was all tho timo thoy need
ed. Ho said the (employes demanded
an answer on the 25th but never
went out until tho 28th, after they
had boon anuworcd; that tho receivers
would not sign tho contract.
A dispatch was received here last
night, stating that a car load of con
ductors, ongineers, firemen, brakemen,
and tolegraph operators loft St, Louis
last night for San Antonio, to go into
tho employo of tho San An
tonio and AransaB Pass
company. This telegram was ''sent
down tho lino" and this morning every
member of tho federation is posted.
It is not believed that any violence
will bo used by the strikers to pro-
vont them taking their places, but
will only uso persuasion. It is said
the argumonts aro irresistible when
tho proper attention is secured and the
word"&oab" figures proininontly in tho
talk. The emigrant car in whioh tho
new reoruits aro spinning Tcxusward
will pass through Waco tomorrow at

This is tho statement ina nutsholl as

As soon as Mr. Sentor camo in
