The moat disconsolate man in the
whole Eleventh congressional district, is
said to be Hon. W. II. Oest. Advices
from Washington are to the effect that
he has been seriously troubled with in
somnia since the 6th iost. A dispatch
sent to him by one of his former sup
porters just after Cable's nomination
didn's serve to quiet his nerves, either.
In speaking of the political contest in
Illinois this year the Peoria Journal re
marks that "a special fight is to be made
upon Oest, Cannon, Hill and Payson. and
in all probability some of them will be

St. Loins Republic: Chairman Pbelp9,
of the democratic executive committee, is

when John Sf. Palmer is at the bead of

Gkst's office holders are now indus
triouaty circulating the report that Ben
T. Cable is opposed to the Flennepin
canal, and ask for a definition of his
Jricwaon that measure. While Mr. Ca
ble has frequently expressed a desire to
have the canal bill pas? congress, still it
is not improper to have an expression
from him on that and other matters of a
public nature, and they will be fortbcom
log at the proper time. With Mr. Cable
we take it that it is different than with
Mr. Gest. It makes very little difference
what the latter gentleman's Ideas are on
such questions. He never emphasizes
them with sufficient force to be felt one
way or the other.
To bat that the Oest people are "uhak
ing in their boots" over the nomination
of B. T. Cable, Esq , is putting it mildly.
The result of the Monmouth' convention
was hardly known before the party or
fans and postmaster correspondents com
menced their vituperation and mud-sling'
ing. Ilappily, their poisonous shafts
fail to make an impression, and only
stultify the men who use them. The
invulnerability of the democratic nom
inee's character, integrity and ability,
however, apparently intensifies the splene
tic disposition of these doleful harpists.
The very hopelessness of their case seems
to play havoc with their sense of pro
priety and respect. While the Argcs
sympathizes with this sorely afflicted
class, it begs to inform them that their
abuse of Mr. Cable will fail of its object.
It is impossible to draw the attention of
the public from the fact that the present
republican congressman is a lament
able failure, and that he has done noth
ing since taking his seat in the national
legislature to warrant a further support
from a misrepresented constituency.

New York. Aug. 11. Everything in and
ind around the New York Central rail
way statiou was quiet and orderly yester-
iay. Nearly all of the trains ran on sched
ule time, the only ones that were not
started out being the 8:40 Croton local and
the Peekskill accommodation which was
to start at 10:25. The railroad company
elaim that they have received a number
of applications for the posit ious vacated by
the strikers and that a large number of
the places have already been filled by ex
perienced railroad men.
The Company's Position Stated.
Vice President Webb has given out the
following circular to the press: "The po
sition of the company is this: We will se
lect our own men and we do not propose
that they shall be designated by the
Knights of Labor or its committees.
When men are dismissed we shall iet rid
of the inefficient, the most vicious and
those least in accord with our interests.
When promotions are to le made we will
liot be bound by the seniority rules pro
mulgated by the Knights of Labor. A
due consideration will always be given to
length of service, but the first and most
Important rule wilt be the qualifications
of the men for the place. If our men have
grievances the proper officers will be will-
log to grant hearings and see that consid
eration is .given, but we will not allow
outsiders to intervene or interfere between
the employer and employe.
No Olijecllou to Labor t'nloiis.
Tor this reason alone I refused to al
low Mr. Holland to discuss any differ
ences alleged to exist between the com
pany and Its men, and not for the 'reason,
as stated, that we object to our employes
being members of labor organizations.
These are my. views, and I aw satisfied
that they are concurred in and approved
by every official of the company, by the
board of directors, and by the gentlemen
who are most interested in its securities.
The strike is Unadvised, cannot succeed,
and we wil put it down and maintain
the position we have taken." Mr. Hol
land was not at the hotel, and his views
of the circular could not be learned. Mr.
Webb also sent out a statement of the
movement of trains yesterday, showing
that most of the outbound trains left ou
The Firemen Ordered Out.
J. J. Holland and Secretary Hayes, of
the executive board of the Knights of La
bor, have ordered all the firemen on the
Vanderbilt lines to quit work. The strik
era spent yesterday hoi ding meetings and
encouraging each other to hold out, while
pickets watched all railway stations to
discourage any persons arriving from
abroad from taking service on the Cen
tral. During the day Secretary Hayes
callod on Vice President Webb, bearing a
letter from Father Ducey favoring arbi
tration. Mr. Webb firmly declined to
treat with Mr. Hayes, as he said there
was nothing to arbitrate and that the
company would not take back the dis
charged men under any circumstances.
A Had Feature of the Strike.
One of the worst features of the strike
will lie the lack of milk to the people of
New York. Not a can of milk came into
the depot Saturday morning. This will
sorely affect the hospitals, orphan asy
lums, hotels, restaurants, bakers, poor
people aud hosts of others. Over 22,000
cans of milk, each can containing forty
quarts, are received every morning at the
Grand Central depot between X and 4
o'clock. Many milkmen, who heard of
the strike, hurried over to the West Shore
Railroad and purchased all the milk they
wanted. But the agents there soon
heard about the strike and raised the price
of milk from fJ.38 per can to F-2,
then to t-, and at last accounts
were getting f6 and $7 a can for it.
The Latest Reports aud Rumors.
It was rumored last night that a tie-up
on the JSaltlmore and Ohio, the Delaware.
Lackawanna and Western, the Pennsylva
nia, the hrie, and the Jeswey Central had
taken place. At the stations of the Penn
sylvania and Jersey Central roads the ru
mur was denied. The train dispatchers at
both stations gave assurances that if there
was a tie-up they knew nothing of it. At
11 o'clock at the Grand Union hotel it was
reported that the order was given for the
Bremen to go out at midnight. Several of
them bad already left their engines. Mr.
Webb at the above hour denied all knowl
edge of the firemen striking. -He said the
company would move freight at St. John's
park to-day. A large force of police will
be on Iiaad to insure success.
Actual Situation Yesterday.
The only trains that were running yea
terday were passenger trains. No attempt
was made to move any of the 2,000 cars
that were stranded in the Sixty-fifth street
freight yard. This yard will have to be
cleared before it will be possible to handle
the freight that ia in St. John's Park and
the Thirtieth street freight yard. In ad
dition to the freight in the Sixty-Gftb
street yard were seventy-five carloads of
west-bound freight on barges at dock O
Notices posted all over the yard announc
ed the determination of the railroad com
pany to fight the strike and promised
protection to all employes who remain at
work. At a conference held at 1 o'clock
In Third Vice President Webb's office It
was determined to begin moving the
freight from the bixty-flfth street yard
SITUATION AT ALBANY.
Militia and Plnkertons on Guard Oov
emor Hill's Remarks.
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 11. The situa
tion here heebmea more serious every min
ute, and the intense quietness which pre
Tails among the men and at the railroad
yards is viewed with alarm by the rail
road officials. At West Albany not a man
was visible, but the 8,000 cars laden with
merchandise were still, and the tracks al
ready beginning to rust. The yard ia
guarded by Pinkerton men, who watch
the oil trains and lumber piles very close'
ly. Passenger trains were passing through
the yard with the aid of the militia, but at
oue time a struggle took place between
the strikers and soldiers.
A K. of L. Official View.
Secretary Proutley, of the K. of L., said
when asked about the progress made:
'The strike is yet in its infancy, and its
extent and power, if our demands are not
met, will surprise people. The men are
remaining quietly away from the yard,
and will avoid trouble if possible. We
Ire not interfering with passenger trains,
and shall not attempt to atop them, but
the road must not attempt to move a
pouud of freight or there will be trouble."
That the railroad people are greatly
alarmed is evident from the fact that 800
Pinkerton men are here, and Robert
Pinkerton himself lain command. Each
man is armed, and they are spread out
over the tracks between Albany and West
Declare It a Fljrht for Life.
District Assembly 147, K. of L., com
posed of various bodies, held a meeting
yesterday afternoon. An address was is
sued to the strikers. It reads as follows:
'District assembly 147 sympathizes with
District A-serablv Si3 in tl e grave situa-
that to-day confronts your district. To
our minds it means either a oomplate vic
tory or a total demoralizi Xina of your
magnificent organisation. District As
sembly 447 pledge their unwerving and
unstinted support and assistance until the
end. We urge you to remain cool. Let
no rascally bands of Pinkert on cut-throats
goad your members to any acts of vio
lence. Should your membe r weaken, ac
cording to the threat of Vice President
Webb, you will receive no c moderation."
Governor Hill Gives H la Views.
Governor Hill was asked 1 tat night If he
had ordered the . militia to report for
service at Syracuse. He sa d that it was
untrue. He had not been called upon and
probably would not be. Tie sheriff of
any county could call upon the militia to
act in case of an emergency. Asked if he
would give his views upon the strike he
declined to talk, but intimated that the
men would not be molest i by militia
unless in case of riot. He hoped the men
would obtain their rights.
Going to Force Crisis.
At last the road authorities are. con
fronted with a big problem. All the em
ployes on the Central road are ready to
assist the strikers. At 4 o'clock yester
day afternoon the strikers held a secret
conference at which were repi esentatlves of
division 830, locomotive nimen ot Al
bany; 310. of Schenectady; 815, of East Al
bany, and division 40, Brotherhood ot Lo
comotive Engineers.. It wa determined
to force the crisis, and - to-day engineers
and firemen will refuse to draw trains
containing anything excepfi the United
States mail. No passengers of any de
scription are to go out and no freight.
NARROW ESCAPE FROM BLOODSHED.
Syracuse Striker' Defy the Militia and
Nearly AVin the Hj ht.
Stkactbe. N. Y., Aug. 11. An attempt
was made to move a freight train in the
yards here yesterday morning under a
military escort and there was a narrow es
cape from bloodshed in an encounter with
the strikers. The movement of the tram
was resisted by the striking railroad men 1
and a cull was made for the militia's pro
tection. At one time a conflict seemed
imminent. Deputy Sheriff Kratz had his
pistol at ene time pointing into the face
of a striker and four or five of the soldiers
were surrounded by about thirty strikers
who pressed them into quarters so close
that they could not use their bayonets.
The trains were finally moved up into the
yard under the state soldiery.
A Good Frospect for Bloadsheed.
JTaj. Auer received orders to have his
entire battery under orders, and was notV
fied that te of the separate companies of
the state militia would report here at the
earliest hour. Two companies are to
come from Oswego, one from Elmira. and
the Sixty-fifth regiment from Buffalo.
The companies from this section of the
state for the most part are in camp at
Peekskill. The officers 6f the military
companies have orders to char the East
Syracuse yards at all hazards as soon as
the companies can be massed. If necessa
ry they will turn the batterry guns on the
strikers. The dissati.tfled mil road men
say that no trains will be rrovedif they
can prevent, even if bloodshed follows.
THE FIREMEN QUIT- WORK. .
A Strike Also Teclded Fpon ou Three
Other Lines of Road.
New Yokk, Aug. 11. Jus', after midnight-
this morning all the locomotive
firemen, members of the Br itherhood of
Ijocomotive Firemen) on the Hudson river
divison of the New York Central and
Hudson River railroad joined the striking
Knights of Iibor who went out Friday
night. This defection of firemen will, it
is feared, completely block travel over the
New York Central between this city and
Albany, as the Brotherhood of Locomo
tive Engineers are pledged not to run
with any firemen except tho belonging
to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire
A Tie-rp to Chicago.
It has been definitely decided to strike
on the Lake Shore, Michigan Central and
Michigati Southern to-day. It is deter
mined to tie up the main line of the Cen
tral all the way from New Y irk to Chi
cago. As to whether the Vanderbilt lines
west of Chicago will be tied up, if the
strike is' not settled soon, on thf other lines
of the system will be considered.
On the Qui Vive at BuB ulo.
Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 11. There were
few evidences of a strike on the railways
In this city. Trains were promptly for
warded on all roads. A body of Pinker
ton men passed through during the day,
while the state troops here ha e been or
dered to oe m readiness for emergencies.
There was an attempt at violence, how
ever, at the east end, about 10 j. m.. when
two men boarded a train and t -ied to pull
the engineer and fireman of!'. The men
resisted and their assailants fl d, pursued
by policemen, who failed to catch or iden
tify them. The strikers say that the
trouble is only begun so far.
Powderly Charges It to Gould.
Sckanton-. Pa., Aug. 11. A reporter
asked T. V. Powderly what he thought of
the Central strike. He said it would be a
big one; that Channcey M. Cepew knew
all about it and was fully responsible, and
that he had seen an assertion that soma
of the officials ot the Central were in the
Cay of Jay Gould and were anxious to
ring trouble on that company, and
therefore influenced the officials of the
Central to make war on the workmen.

ern Clubs Met Help.
Chtcaoo, Aug. 11. There was little of
special interest in the base ball field last
week. The two great rivals for public fa
vor went on the even tenor of their
way, with the attendance part of the week
in favor of the league, and part in favor
of the Brotherhood. The fact that Mr.
Spalding has gone to Europe would seem
to indicate that he is somewhat weary,
and needs a rest. It was reported that
Buck" Kwing would cast his lot with
the league next year, but the report is
Unconfirmed. The Washington club of
the Atlantic league is "busted," and the
Sioux City, of the Western, is in a bad
Way, but will play the season out with
the help of certain enthusiastic base ball
men. The Des Moiues has been pur
chased by Lincoln, Neb., partie a, and will
continue in the game.

Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri and Wiscon
sin. There was a very large number, too,
who had split . from Posts 5 and 28 in Chi
cago, one faction going by wy of New
York and one taking the St. Lawrence
route. They were four hours late at Niag
ara Falls, which they "saw" in tweuty
Storm Clouds Gathering.
They got to Kingston at midnight and
ate cold suppers, and at 4 o'clock Satur
day morning five big steamers loaded left
there to go through the rapids of tbe St,
Lawrence. All the boats were packed
with Grand Army men and their fami
lies. Tbe Bohemian, the largest of the
boats, was the last. She had between 600
and 700 passengers aboard. The long
Sault rapid was passed safely and the ex
cursionists began to congratulate them
selves that the discomforts of the trip had
ended. The entire day was very pleas
antly spent, albeit that the boat was fear
fully overcrowded. About 7 o'clock great
thunder clouds began to gather in the
west and the sky to darken. The wind
freshened considerably, too, and a big
storm was predicted.
Commencement of the Trouble.
There was yet oue series of rapids to go
through, tbe Cretan, as dangerous as any
on the river, and tbe captain of the Bo
hemian thought he could reach there be
fore darkness set in. The upper deck for
ward of the boat was packed with people
watching the first plunge of the steamer,
when a brilliant flash of lightning ran
across the steamer's bow. Then thnnder
pealed and rain began to fall in sheets.
The people made a rush for the cabin and
shelter, and tbe steamer entered the rap
ids. She rolled fearfully, and the people
urged from side to side. Suddenly the
sound of cracking timbers was heard, and
women shrieked and fainted.
A Wild Fanle Kreaks Out.
Then there were heard several hoarse
commands from the pilot house to the
crew to clear the tiller chains. The upper
deck beams bad cracked and the floor in
sinking had jammed the tiller chains
leading from the pilot house aft and the
steamer, in the midst of the broiling
rapids, wasentirely beyond control. hen
it became known that the boat was un
manageable close to the awful rocks an
indescribable panic ensued. Women
rushed here and there, those that hadn't
fainted, and, worse than all, the crew and
waiters on lioard made a rush for the pile
of life preservers in the center of the
cabin and on the after deck, and began
strapping them on.
The Meamer Strikes a Rock.
The war veterans aboard kept their wits
about them and fought the cowards away
from the life-preservers, while as quickly
as possible they strapped as many as they
could find on the women and children.
There were not enongh to half go round.
The boat in tbe meantime bad turned en
tirely around and was now going down
tbe rapids stern first. Snddeuly there was
a terrible jar and everybody's heart stood
still. The steamer had struck a rock, and
from the peculiar grating sound that fol
lowed the shock she apparently slid off.
The captain yelled that there was no dan
ger and everybody expected the next min
ute to be their last.
Three More Rumps to Safety.
The steamer slowly began to torn
round again and then came another
shock, followed by another, each of them
heavier than the first. Again the captain
shouted: "Keep cool, there is no danger!"
and the passengers anxiously peered
through the pouring rain over the foam
crested rapids, vainly trying to see the
shore. Another shock came. The fourth
and the steamer gave a mighty heave and
plunge, for all the world as if she was go
ing down head first, and then slowly
titmed her head to the rapids. The shock
was another rock she had touched, and
the plunge was the last jump through the
rapids out into the open, clear waters.
FrerytMng Lorely Again.
The captain yelled, "We are all right
now," and a sigh of relief went up that
almost put to shame the tempest that was
howling over the river. The crew had
got over their panic, and were working
hard clearing the tiller chains, daring the
most critical time, and by the time they
cleared the rapids the steamer was under
control again, her head was tnmed shore
ward, and within twenty minutes the
party were disembarking in the Bean
harnais canal pier. An examination of
the steamer showed that she was making
very little water.
She Was Built That Way.
The vessel's bottom was especially built
for just such an emergency. The upper
deck, which started the panic, had sunk
two feet, and it is a miracle that it didn't
fall entirely. If it had there would have
been a horriole tale to tell. The passing
through tbe rapids with no worse result
than it was, was a miracle. The (100 or
more people did not reach Montreal un
til early yesterday morning, the most dis
gusted party that ever struck Montreal.
