"The strike," said Hyan, "will not atop

ers of the east. I am confident of succeed
ing. My -work up to the present time has
borne fruit ten times more than I expected
it would. 1 was cautious at lirst about
approaching the lenders upon tlie subject
of striking in sympathy, but my first at
tempt has convinced roe that there was no
ground for holding back. I was some

"I ko to Boston on the next train. I

will not say that labor in this city will
strike out of sympathy for the men in

POSITION OF THE ADMINISTRATION.

Says Aliout Tltis I'oiut.
Washington,.! uly 10. "The administra
tion will not cease, its efforts until the con
stitutional right of every man to obtain
employment free from intimidation is
thoroughly established. If that should be
the outcome of the present struggle it will
be worth the price paid for it. dear as it
has been." This statement by a high offi
cial sets out concisely the position of the i
government. It, means a guarantee not
only to protect the i.p-ratioas of the mails
and to keep opeu inicr-state commuuica-
thin, but to nrnteet the ri.-'.t of tl... i,..ti-
