VERY LIKE A FIZZLE.
The Backbone of the New
York Central Strike
Except at Syracuse and De
Witt There Is No Sign
Trains Are Running Regu
larly and Pinkerton Men
Gov. Hill Refuses to Order
Out the Militia at First
New York, Aug. 11.— During this af
ternoon and evening the Graud Central
depot was as quiet as though no strike
had occurred. Trains were continually
arriving and leaving in the usual man
ner, and the entire business of the
depot had resumed its normal condition.
Vice President Webb said at 9 o'clock
in the evening (and at midnight the
situation is the same) that the strike, so
far as the New York Central railroad
was concerned, was at an end. The en
tire passenger and freight service will
be resumed to-morrow morning, and all
trains will leave on schedule time.
All freight yards will be open for the
reception of Western freight. At 4
o'clock p. m. to-day a special last freight
train, composed of twenty cars, left the
Hudson street depot with a squad of
police on the engine. Train No. 21,
known as the fast mail, which left the
Grand Central depot at 4:25 this morn
ing, was the first train to get to Buffalo
over the New York Central's track.
This train reached De Wilt, where the
trouble occurred yesterday, and found
the yards, where it was impossible to get
a train through yesterday, entirely. in
the hands of the railroad company. The
switches were all manned .and every
thing was in thorough running order.
This was the first train
To liaise the Blockade.
On to-day's schedule at the Grand
Central depot there were 188 Central
railroad trains. Of these 120 left the
depot almost on schedule time. The
conductors of trains of . the New York
Central railroad that arrived at the
Grand Central depot to-day, complain
bitterly of the brutal conduct of Pink
erton's men who are stationed at West
Albany.' These men treated all who
had business iv the yards at that place
in a most insulting manner and, in the
opinion of the conductors, their conduct
indicated that they were doing
their best to foment a disturb
ance. ' When . Vice President
Webb received Col. Judson's re
ply to his request for protection of the
men and property at the Syracuse and
DeWitt yards, he called a conference of
the Central officials. They decided to
instruct Pinkerton's . detectives em
ployed there to charge the strikers upon
any show of violence, and if necessary
to give the governor a casus belli for
the ordering out of troops. Shortly af
ter 1 p. m. a train of five cars heavily
loaded moved from the St. John's Park
freitrht depot to the yards at Thirty
third street. A return trip was made
with a number of Michigan Central cars
from Detroit later. No other efforts
will be made to move freight to-night,
All is quiet around the freight depot.
LET THE MILITIA LOOSE.
Young Mr. Webb * Tries to Bluff
New York, Aug. Vice President
Webb, for the Vanderbilts, still refuses
. to submit the case to arbitration, or to
confer with the Knights of Labor. He
said this morning that the backbone of
the strike, so far as the New York end
was concerned, was broken. He was,
however, much concerned about the
trouble at Syracuse and Albany. This
morning he telegraphed Gov. Hill as
Capt. Michael Aure, commanding the
militia at our De Witt yards, near Syracuse,
and who has been there with the militia for
the past twenty-four hours, notifies the sher
iff of Onondaga comity that he has been di
rected by the commanding general to sus
pend operations until the arrival of "Maj.
Gen. Farnsworth. who has been ordered, to
investigate. The fact is that the strikers and
rioters ha*; c now been in possession of our
property at De Witt for twenty-four hours
and have prevented our using or occupying
it; and as far as I can ascertain, little or no
action has been had by the authorities to pro
tect our property or permit us to take posses
ion. The sheriff of Onondaga county was ap
pealed to Saturday. I ask that you will
cause prompt action to be taken as will per
mit us to operate our road.
11. \V_ltek Webb, Vice President.
Gov. Hill replied to the dispatch that
was sent by Mr. Webb as follows: "I
will do all that is necessary." Mr. Webb
said later that he was in receipt of
numerous letters from stockholders in
the company, who expressed the utmost
satisfaction with the course he was fol
lowing. One letter, the author of which
he refused to divulge, said that "he
must not deviate one hair from the posi
tion taken, and lam willing to sustain,
gladly, my share of the loss that may
fall upon the company." Mr. Webb
added: " That gentleman holds over
1.000 shares of stock in our system."
Nothing has been heard by the officials
from Mr. Depew. _
WILL MAKE HASTE SLOWLY.
Gov. Hill Is Not Ordering Out
■ Militia at First Call.
Albany, N. V., Aug. 11.— Gov. Hill
was busy this morning sending out
telegrams and receiving delegations.
f Treasurer E. J. Price and a committee
from D. A. 246 called at 9 o'clock. Mr.
Price said that they came to assure the
governor that the men would remain
quiet, and do no harm to the railroad's
property. Mr. Price said that one of.
the officers of the order had gone to
De Witt to quiet any disturbance exist
ing. The governor in reply said that
no militia would be ordered out at the
request of the railroad company. If
there were trouble at any point a mes
senger from the adjutant general's
office would be sent, and no troops
would go out unless he deemed it nec
essary. Gen. Farnsworth had gone to
De Witt and Syracuse, and was report
ing things qitfet there this morning.
The following telegram was sent from
To F. Donovan, State' Arbitrator, 123 Nine
teenth Street, Brooklyn: ' ■ -
The employes of the New York Central &
Hudson railroad will submit the difference
between them and the company to the regu
larly constituted authorities of the state. If
the company is willing to agree to the same, .
please notify the undersigned. E. J. Lee.
The following answer was received,
New Youk, Aug. 11.— To G. D. Robertson,
State Board of Arbitration, Albany: See Lee
or representative and inform him - that the
company refuses to refer matters iv dispute,
DAILY ST. PAUL GLOBE
or to enter into conference with a view to
settlement, claiming that the men are: not
now in the company's employ. . -
E. F. Donovan.
Adjt. Gen. Porter, when asked re
garding the movement" of the state
troops in connection with the strike on
the New York Central road, said: "Up
to this hour there has not ; been a dol
lar's worth of property destroyed or a
single act of violence committed, so far
as 1 can learn. As a whole, the strikers
are behaving admirably, and are ~in
good temper. Gov. Hill had a consulta
tion with some of the leaders this fore
noon, and after listening to the ; griev
ances, he called their attention to the
situation at Dewitt, and asked that all
hostile demonstrations there be stopped,
and they promised 'that his request
would be complied with this afternoon.
.Immediately after the interview some of
them started for Syracuse, and the re
sult is that they have brought about
what they promised. The company has
now peaceably resumed the possession
of its property at that place, and its
trains are running through there with
out molestation, lt is doubtful whether
any troops will be now needed unless an
unexpected change in the situation oc
curs. The state authorities are pre
pared for any emergency, and will act
without fear or hesitation, vigorously
and promptly, whenever such action is
really necessary; but they will only use
force as a last extremity and then only
for the protection of property, and the
prevention of violence. The strikers
profess a desire to avoid violence, and
we shall believe them to be sincere
until we see evidence to the contrary.
MAY BE FORCED TO STRIKE.
Trainmen Fear to Work AVith In
/,';; competent Switchmen.
Albany, N. V., Aug. 11.— A peculiar
feature of the strike, as noted this
morning, is that the engineers, firemen
and conductors claim that, no matter
what their sympathies are, they will be
forced to strike to protect their lives.
They say that the few new switchmen
engaged are incompetent and ignorant,
aud that they take their lives in their
hands when they run a train. Two
thirds of the switches have uo attention
whatever. They further assert that the
trains of fifteen and seventeen cars sent
out have but one trainman, and in case
of danger could not be stopped. The
men claim that they are thus forced to
the wall. It is thought that the men
will make this their excuse.
BLUNDER IN TRAIN ORDERS.
It Results in a Fatal Collision of
Rochester, Aug. 11.— A bad freight
smash-up occurred to-day on the Auburn
division of the New York Central at
Railroad Mills, about twenty-five miles
cast of this city. At 12:45 p. m. Regular
Freight No. 42 collided with au extra
freight train at that point. Both engines
were completely demolished. About
twenty cars were wrecked. The cars
actually leaped over the telegraph wires
along the track and tore them down.
The regular train was in charge Of Con
ductor Addison and the extra was in
charge of Conductor Bath. The acci
dent was the result of a blunder in the
orders given to the two trains. A list
of the killed and injured follows:
Fireman GEORGE LIGIITIIEART, pinned
under the tender; both legs broken. He
died in a few minutes from internal hemorr
Urakeman FRED HARRIS, head injured.
Doubtful if will recover.
GEORGE HORSTLER, burled over both
engines, back hurt; hopeful. .'_ !Bj#h \A**W*Wk
Engineer LOUIS PALMER, jumped; badly
hurt. '.'■•'■ •'
Engineer JESSE DA*NZY, still beneath
the wreck; probably dead.
The road was blocked for several
TRAINS BEHIND TIME,
But the Situation at Buffalo Is
Buffalo, N. V., Aug. 12.— the
oay advanced the situation appeared
considerably improved. Trains were
arriving and departing more nearly ou
schedule time, aud through trains ar
rived from the East on better time than
yesterday, and Western connections
were not so greatly delayed. Train No.
5 arrived from New York at 10 . o'clock
nearly four hours late, all ot which
time was lost at Syracuse, as she ar
rived at Canastota only fifteen minutes
late. The Chicago and New York lim
ited trains got away all right. The
engineers and firemen are doing their
own switch this morning, and do
not appear to be much in sym
pathy with the strikers. Superintend
ent Burroughs went to Lockport this
morning. Attaches of his office re
ported affairs on this division in much
better shape than yesterday. Every
thing about the depot failed to corrobo
rate the statement that the Lake Shore
and Michigan Central trainmen had
been ordered out. All the men ou these
roads are going out with their trains as
usual. A Central switch engineer who
had just pulled a heavy train into the
train house with his engine, said:
"There is no chance of the firemen or
engineers being affected by this strike.
There have been no attempts to get
either the firemen or engineers out that
I know of." This was corroborated by
his fireman. Gen. Doyle said that while
the militia here are in readiness to act
should they be needed, he did not con
sider it likely that their services would
be required. . *' ■ ,*2-~-*''"-'
PIXKERTONS ON GUARD.
Imported Fly Cops Clear the
Yards at Syracuse.
Syracuse, N. V., Aug. 11.— At 4p.
m. 50 Pinkerton detectives and 100 rail
road men went to East Syracuse. y The
Pinkertons formed iii line and cleared
the yard, the strikers yielding without
a struggle. The strikers are now iii
session. The other men at once went
to work making up freight trains,
It : is reported that the : strikers
were advised by their leaders at
Albany to surrender on having
word from Gov. Hill that the military
would be ordered to East : Syracuse at
once, if the running of all trains was
not permitted. At noon to-day Yard
master Sherman at East Syracuse noti
fied the strikers that all who wished to
return to work must report to him at 5
o'clock this afternoon, when the pay
car is expected. He said that those
who do not report will be discharged
immediately. . This was misunderstood
by the Knights to mean that the militia
might return again this evening. They
held a meeting at ; 3p. m., but only
evasive answers were made to inquiries
concerning the meeting's object. *

flying the president's flag, and bearing
President Harrison, Secretaries Rusk
and Noble and Private Secretary Hal
ford, entered Boston harbor this after
noon she was met by the other vessels
of the fleet,, the cruiser Atlanta, the
Kearsarge, the gunboats Petrel and
Yorktown, the dispatch boat Dolphin,
the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius and the
torpedo boat Gushing— all save the
Kearsarge and dishing firing salutes.
The revenue cutter Gallatin, with Gov.
Brackett, Collector Beard and Mr. and
Mrs. McKee on board, escorted the Bal
timore to her anchorage. Mayor Hart
and other members of the city govern
ment also went down the harbor.
Then came the chief magistrate, while
Mrs. Noble and other ladies were
on board the Vigilant. President Har
rison landed at about 5:40 p. m., amid
the thunder of cannon, at Rowe's wharf
and was escorted to the Hotel Vendome
by the First battalion of cavalry. The
route was through Broad, State, Wash
ington, School, Tremont, Boylston and
Dartmouth streets. The sidewalks and
windows along the line of march, which
was nearly two miles in extent,' were
packed with enthusiastic multitudes,
who greeted the president with hand
clapping and cheers. The president
rode with Gov. Brackett in a carriage
drawn by four dark bays. . He carried
his hat in his hand and
V.'.. ;: - Bowed Right and Left,
at the greetings of the throng. -'Behind
rode Secretaries Rusk and Noble, and
in a third carriage were Private Secre

pies the state suite at the Vendome,
and the reception room has been put in
regal floral shape. The great arrival of
the day was the Nebraska train of fif
teen coaches, bringing Department
Commander T. S. Clarkson in the state
department headquarters car. The vet
erans seemed to breathe easier as they
emerged from their cramped quarters
so tired, and the expression, "Been
standing most of the way," -.was heard
on "all sides. Interest, centered in a
thin-visaged veteran surrounded by
congratulating comrades, a survivor of
four prisons -Anderson ville, . Libby,
Savannah and Milieu— A. K.
Comston. The report was current
among : this delegation that 1,000
veterans from Western districts
were obliged to turn back at
Chicago for lack A-} of accommo
dations. The busiest place in-town this
morning was the headquarters of the G.
A. R. bureau of information, in charge
of the Sons of Veterans. It was esti
mated that 10,000 people bombarded this
bureau with a fire of questions between
7: and 11 a. m. The branch bureaus
throughout the city were equally busy.
That these institutions were a" happy
provision was early apparent, and it
would have been fortunate if they could
have supplied comprehension as well as
information. Said one grizzled veteran:
"They have told me where to go, but my
boy, this is the crookedest city I ever,
saw.and 1-don't know how to begin to
go anywhere." The following dispatch

state officials. The company sat down
shortly before 7 o'clock, and it ; was past

carriages were in waiting. This was
the only audible speech that was ,
made, during the entire banquet, the
entire absence of speech making being
one of the conditions upon which Gen.

Omaha, Neb., Aug. 11.— Fascinating
| Mrs. Oliver Lynch, from Dublin, in-,
stalled herself at a fashionable board

up to be a widow with a small: annuity,
aad soon ensnared several suscepti
ble young professional men and their
pocketbooks. Remittances were de

wealthy friends for all there was in it. ;
The suspicious of her landlady were;
araused and Mrs. Lynch was .
usted. She left her boarding _
house and to-day, through an ; in
discreet attorney's clerk, her story
came out. She is the daughter -of a
respectable washerwoman of Louis
ville, Ky., and was there married to
Joseph . Lynch, a prosperous cabinet
maker. With him she went to Dublin,
and on her return to America,
deserted her penniless husband
in New York. She . returned
to y Ireland, and in Dublin was
presented to Dr. Arthur Macan, who
stands in the front rank of the medical
profession in Ireland. Mrs. Lynch was
represented to be a niece of I.T. Lalor,
a prominent Dublin official, and heir
ess to £30,000. Dr. Duncan had a
wife, but the prospects of a blushing
bride with a handsome dot proved too
-much for him. He married her. The ;
■£30,000 failed to show up and the doctor
•Started an investigation. His ; new
wife calmly confessed her bigamy, and :
he started her to America with £100 cash
and the promise of £50 annually. She
has . commenced divorce proceedings
here against Lynch, and claims she wil
be remarried to Macan in New York.

ing the denizens of Waldron and vicin
ity living near the - ; Ogden graveyard,
ten miles southeast of this * point, were
thrown -into great excitement by the
upheaval of the earth 'and the falling
of stones .and mud ;in the neigh
borhood. About three miles .south of
Waldroa, at a point where Conn's creek
empties into Flat Rock .* river, '■■:■- the \
Streams form ".'. a horseshoe bend, and :
within the bend are about ten acres of
land. At this point a terriffic explo
sion or upheaval occurred, tearing holes '
in the ground and igniting surrounding
objects" from burning gas. J. H. Towe,
who lives on the farm where : the : ex
plosion occurred this morning, says
he heard a terrific report and felt
the earth quivering beneath his feet.*
Tie went toward the graveyard," and was
soon confronted by a sheet of " flame 200
feet high. Then fifty or more fountains
Of fire burst from the earth. These were
interspersed with six or eight geysers.
The river bed was torn to pieces, and
the huge fissures ;, were receiving the
river's water. Sheets of flames swept
over the water, and a crater covering ,
'tin area of one acre was quickly'
! converted into a huge hole, from which
a continuous • roaring, and rumbling
noise proceeded. Within the bend of
the river, and for one-eighth of a mile
'along the stream, great rents are in the
earth and in the river Ded. At : the
'bend of the river in the bank, which is
of limestone, is a fracture - a quarter of :
a mile long. Stones the size of
a house have been hurled \ from'/ their
places. The graveyard was shaken up,
the skeletons of the dead being dis
tinctly seen in the fractures of ? the
'earth. Gas flows freely from the entire
surface of the ten acres. Many theories
! have been advanced as to the cause of the
: upheaval.; Many people contend that it
was a spontaneous combustion of nat
ural gas. Others think that the; up
heaval was volcanic. Mr. Towe,- who
got to the scene -of the gas ig
nited, is sure the upheaval was vocanic.
Inhabitants in the locality became wild '
with ■ excitement, and many left their
: homes. ' Within the last eighteen
months there have thirteen gas wells
sunk in the locality of the graveyard,
and; while each has had some gas, none
have been gushers. _E_6

volvers and rushed through the crowd.
Several of the strikers drew re
volvers, and matters looked dangerous
for Messrs.* Gowan '; and Rigby, but the
timely arrival of a squad of special
police on the scene had its effect on the
mob, and their prisoner was taken away
from them. The mob was very ugly,
and remained near the planing mill
until 7 o'clock. Later two Finlanders
were arrested and placed under bonds
to appear at the next term of the dis

that law and order. can. be maintained.
