The trouble is the result of a reduction of
fones on freight trains, made by remorlng

drawn by mogul engines. I'.llurls were
made to send out trains with only two brake
men. The braki man eUitii that the state
law rcipilrefi one man for every ten cars.
The mogul engines are used only to draw
thirty nrs. When (lie men saw that two
men would lie required to manage the train
a relusal was iniule to go out and trains were
kept at a stand-still. An nttempt to send
out a train resulted In the brakeman
pulling the pin, cutting trains In ten or
twelve parts nnd threatening injuries to per
sons. Onu nlhiial threatened to shoot and
for n time it looked as though n not was im
minent. Two lenders of the strike were ar
retted anil plaifd in jail, but were soon re
leased by the adviceot the company's attorney
tor fear their confinement would lead to
fcrealer I'leileinint and further trouble. Con
durtors refusid to go out without regular

Postmaster (leneral Vilas, after eonsiilti
tlon with the President ami Cabinet, has fully
decided not to advertise for bids for foreign
mall service) under the iierndsslm tmvverot
last Mareti, appropriating $400,000 for tho
benefit of American sle.imslilp lines engaged
In tho foreign in. ill service1. Tho reasons as
signed as governing this edelslon are as fol
lows: It Is not nis'i'ss.iry to liuiku such con
tracts In order to provide for thu transput ta
tlon of these) mills, and the tales now ptld
give niuplu ciiiiin'iisitiou wherever mails
nro of liny considerable volutin', while pie-
Ions statutes alford all tho nuthoiily to thu
department necessary to provide tor other
cases. This being so, tbu iiuthoiity could
only bo exercised with a view to the distri
bution of money neee-ssary, in fact, to eoni
jKMisato the mall carriage for the purpose; ol
aiding American titVainslilpiimipiulcs. I)e
si ruble as is tho development of thesu
lines, tho act ilea's not piolcss to put llio
money at thu Postmaster (leneial's desire,
for any other puriioso than to carry tho
malls, lie-sides, If so tei bo distiihnted, no
reason for, eir rulo of, discrimination bo
tweon ditferi'iil American lines Is provided,
and yi't it would miuiro nearly three linn s
the niithnrlzeiil sum to givo all existing lines
tho authorized rate ef fifty ce-nts t mile.
No other means of discrimination arc given
tho Postmaster Oeneral exceqit to reject, In
his discretion, and as there are but two In
stances of American lines to plying between
the same) ports as to bo conietltois, bo
must, tliereforo, either chooso sometimes
for favorablo consideration, rejecting tho
bids and claims of others, or cute r a gener
al understanding with all th,. possible Did
ders beforo their bids sbould be m.ule, to
fix a limit such that while contracts with all
should absorb, they should not exceed tbu
limited appropriation. 'Hie one course!
would be chaigeabio as unwarranted favor
itism and the latter as nn indolent nbuso ol
nr authority preifcsMslly designed ti bu so
employ od as to exe lie not dislrov compel,,
tion. Neither course could fall of doing In
justice) ti thu steamship lines or tho public,
or promise any development of steamship
service or Increase of mall facilities. If a
general distribution of Ihu appropriation
among all tlin Aineiicaii steamship Hues
on tho basis of mileage) wero to
bo made, tho amount to e.ich
would bo so small as to nv nil
nothing as a stimulant tn Incieaso thu
