According to the Louisville Courier
Journal' Washington correspondent,
"the mad threat of Speaker Reed that he
would keep congress in session until De
cember if the senate did not pass the
force bill has helped to drive some nails
into the coffin of the measure. Some
senators say that they do not intend to
allow Tom Reed to bulldoze that body,
and they are resenting bis threat."
The Union is still coddling the delu
slve hope that Mr. Ben T. Cable will re'
fuse to accept the democratic nomination
for congress in this district. Ilasn't Mr
Oest a friend in the city with sufficient
influence to induce tho morning sheet to
refrain from so conspicuously admitting
at the very beginning of the campaign
that there is no chance for Oesi's election
with Cable in the fl-ld
The Union savs that Mr. Oest con
tinues at Washington "serenely saying
nothing and sawing wood." While it is
generally understood that a profound aid
uninterrupted silence has been the chief
characteristic of Bro. Oest's congresn'onal
existence, it will be refreshing intelli
gence to his constituency to know that he
has also been otherwise encaged. We
would advise the Hon. Mr. Oest, how
ever, to limit his supply to next winter's
demand, or he will be compelled to pav
freight charges to Rock Island.
Reciprocity an a Hop.
Two years ago the national convention
of protected mill owners and railroad at
torneys that nominated Benjamin Har
rison for president declared that rather
than surrender any part of the protective
system the taxes on whisky and tobacco
should be repealed. The Chicago Ilerald
ays that immortal pronouncement
shocked the country, but in spite of it.
and with the aid of an enormous corrup
tion fund, the candidates who stood npon
it were elected, and are now in office.
The monopoly platform of 1SS3 went
Joo far. It was the indiscreet work of
men who believed the people to be ignor
ant, and who, for the first time under the
protective system were daring enough to
throw off all disguise and avow tbcm
selves open and defiant advocates of pri
liege and monopoly. Many of these
politicians have since seen their mistake,
and under the leadership of Mr. Blaine,
s clever a leader of corporate and capi
talislic greed as the world ever saw, ibev
are now vociferously advocating the
quack remedy of reciprocity as a cure-all
for the manifold evils that bear so heavily
upon tbe people of this country.
As urged by the masquerading agents
of tbe protected barons, reciprocity is the
veriest humbug, and the superficial argu
ments with wuicii it. is sustained are of so
litt'e consequence that no one of intelli
gence should be deceived by them for a
minute. The whole scheme is a tub to
the whale and nothing more. It is in
tended to divert the people, to make
them believe that something is really to
be done in their behalf, and to intrench
still more impregnably behind the barri
ers of privilege and monopoly the favored
interests that have grown powerful on
plunder of the people.
Every utterance of these new convt rts
to reciprocity during the hst twenty
years shows them to be enemies of free
and unfettered commerce. They do not
now favor reciprocity in quarters where
it would be of service to the people and in
jurious to the monopolists who keep them
in place. They have selected the poorest
markets on earth with which to establish
reciprocal trade, and they ignore wholly
all those markets in which so large a por
tion of tbe agricultural produce of this
country must find purchasers. How not
to do it is their motto. To fool the peo
ple is their aim.
Frightened politicians and hysterical
editors who have seen and perhaps felt
tbe wrath of tbe people are hurrying
hither and thither in agony and appre
hension urging, begging, threatening, in
behalf of the foolish reciprocity fad. as
though that alone were sufficient to
placate the plundered masses, but tbe
average republican congressman's face is
turned toward the tariff god and he sees
and hears them not. The spectacle is
amusing and in some respects pitiful, yet
it can deceive no one who is capable of
distinguishing between right and wrong.
It is error's last ditch. Wrong offers a
op to the right. With courage and per
severance justice must aoon triumph all
along the line.
Ills Arm fulled from Its Socket.
Cincinnati, Aug. 12. The fast mall

The New York Central Looks
Like a Winner.
A BOLD MOVE BY THE BAILWAT.
Action Determined Upon ts Force tbe
Rtata to Show Its Band A Victory at
. Syracuse and the Yards Cleared of
Strikers The Most Aggressive Work
of the Strikers Being Bone at Albany,
Where Trouble Is Likely to Ensue
The Trains Bloving All Along the Road.
New York, Aug. 13. Vice President
Webb, of the New York Central, yester
day morning applied to Col. Judson for
militia protection at tha yards at Syra
cuse and DeWitt, where the strikers were
practically in charge, and ordering mat
ters to suit themselves. The reply was to
the effect that no troops would be ordered
out at the request of the railway com
pany; that the officer in command would
first investigate the situation aud then de
cide what to do. When Mr. "Webb re
ceived this reply he called a conference of
the Central officials. They decided to in
struct Pinkerton's detectives employed at
the above yards to charge the strikers
upon any show of violence, and if neces
sary to give the governor a casus belli for
the ordering out of the troops. Shortly
after 1 p. m. a train of five freight cars
heavily loaded moved from the St Johns
park freight 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 were made
to move freight last night.
The Apparent situation.
It looked all day yesterday as if the
strike was decidedly in a bad way. A:
soon as daylight appeared there was a
scene of hurry and scurry at the Grand
Central station. Trains went out on time
or very nearly so, and although all trains
did not go ont, enough were forwarded to
demonstrate the fact that the tie-up lacked
a large majority of being complete. As
the day wore on and some freight trains
were made np and sent out the prospect
looked BtiU darker for the strikers, who,
nevertheless, continued stubborn and san
guine, declaring that they would win in
the end. Policemen were everywhere
through the yards, and the usual strikers'
amusement ou these occasions that of
pulling coupling-pins and throwing
switches was noticeable for its absence.
Wrbb Makes a Few Remarks.
A reporter tackled Mr. Webb as soon as
he appeared at his office yesterday morn
ing, and said:
"It is reported, Mr. Webb, that the fire
men of tbe road have joined the strik
"That statement Is nntrne. The Bre
men have not struck and all trains so far
are running all right, and every one of
them left here fully manned."
"What about the signal towers?'
"They are also fully manned and the
men changed their shifts this morning
as though no strike had ever occurred.
The fact is, my young friend," continued
Mr. ebb, warming np aud Bmiling,
"everything is beautiful all along the
road." He corrected this a moment Inter
by saying that Syracuse was an exception.
There the road was not getting sufficient
Men Applying for Reinstatement.
The situation bad not changed at this
point of the New York Central railway
strike at midnight. At the Grand Cen
tral station trains were arriving and de
parting nearly on time. Neit her Holland.
Hayes nor Lee were "to be found. Dur
ing the day many men applied for rein
statement. Mr. Webb said that the Cro
ton locals, comprising ninety trains,
would start to-day again. The Spuyten
Duyvils locals eight trains will also
tart again. Yesterday 150 cars of freight
were handled by the company in this city.
No word has come from Mr. Depew, but
Cyrus t ield called and approved of Mr.
Webb's actions. Several other directors
ALL CLEAR AT SYRACUSE.
The Strikers Drlren from the Tarda by
Stracuse, N. Y., Aug. 13. "The yard is
cleared of strikers and the Pinkerton men
bave possession," was the message that
came over the wire from East Syracuse at
about 6 o'clock last evening. The Pinker
ton detective force reinforced by others
from the fwest went Jto East Syracuse
about 4 o'clock p. m. with Under Sheriff
Austin and several deputy sheriffs and an
outside force of railroad employes. At
the yard they formed in a line and ad
vanced through the freight yard there, the
strikers all retiring before them withont
resistance, and the Pinkerton men and
railroad men began tba work of making
np and forwarding the freight cars con
taining perishable property which were
tied up there.
Starting the Tied-Up Trains.
At 4:05 p. m. the train bearing tha mail
from the east, which should have reached
here at 1:30 p. m., arrived in this city and
was the first train to go through East
Syracuse yesterday. At 4:30 a train that
should have gone east at 2:30 p. m. pulled
out of the Central station, closely followed
by a special train of four cars filled with
the Pinkerton forces and railroad men.
At 6:80 p. m. the first freight from East
Syracuse pulled into the city. It was a
long line of loaded refrigerator cars. A
United Press reporter was informed that
the secret of the whole matter was that
Oovernor Hill felt compelled to take some
action in reference to the strike.
Gov. Hill Calls Time.
The day bad been occupied by Acting
Sheriff Austin, Assistant Superintendent
Goold, of the western division, and the
military officers in holding consultations,
the results of which are said to have been
quickly communicated to Governor Hill.
At noon he inquired what the civil offi
cers had done. On receiving a reply it U
aid that tbe governor called about bin
half a dozen leaders of tbe Knights of
Labor at Albany, and told them in very
plain terms that the embargo must be
lifted or he would certainly order the mil
itia out at once.
Holland Promisee Pence.
This brought 'things to a crisis, and the
result at East Syracuse -is supposed to
bave been brought about in part, at least,
by this information. Mr. Holland, of the
Knights of Labor executive board, ar
rived at East Syracuse on one of the first
paasenger trains from tbe east that ar
rived after the Pinkerton men arrived.
He met Under Sheriff Austin, and is re
ported to have said that he would do his
best to prevent any violence.
Notice to tha Strikers.
At noo"n Yard master Sherman, at East
Syracuse, notified the strikers that all who
wished to return to work must report to
htm at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, when
the pay car is expected. He said that
those who do ant report will be discharged
Immediately. This eras misunderstood by
the knights to mean that the militia
might return again. They held a .meeting
at 3 p. m., but would not aay what actlpn
THREATENING AT ALBANY.
Trainmen Warned Not to Run After Dart
Status of the Flnkertons.
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 13. There is now
more difficulty here over tbe Central lin
than at any other point of tha road. Tha
strikers are active and aggressive. At S
o'clock last night a train on the Central,
bound for Troy, was stopped at the iron
works. After warning the trainmen that
if they attempted to run after dark they
would be atoned tbe train was allowed to
proceed. A committee of the striken at H
p. m. held a conference with Delaware
and Hudson raanaicers. i.nd they agreed to
refyse to aid the Central road.
About the same time Sheriff Kooney
was notified by the Ctntral that then
West Albany shops wete in danger and
i!i at they should ex peci. him to furnish
protection. The Important switches at
Albany were filled yesterday afternoon
with three sets of men, etch set going out
when appealed to by the strikers.
Pinkerton Guards Are Legal.
Late in the afternoon a committee of
the strikers waited npon Attorney General
Tabor for his opinion as to the legality ol
the Pinkerton men beiu.r allowed to pa
trol under arms. He decided that the
railroad could have them as long as they
remained npon their pre pert y, but if any
of them intruded on the public streets they
were liable for arrest.
A Green Swltchmnn's Work.
At 7:30 o'clock the Nw York Central
local to Troy run off an open switch and
the engine was derailed. It was found
that tbe green switebma i had turned hii
key the wrong way. The track was
blocked for over an binr. The freight
train which left New Yook in the morn
ing arrived at East Albany about 8
o'clock. No attempt was made to bring
it across the bridge.
A Fight Brewing.
There is a suspicion that an attempt
will be made to break the blockade at
West Albany. Engines bave been called
for and a new lot of Pinkerton men ar
rived last night. These men, now num
bering 850, will form a cordon at West
Albany and tbe work of moving the
freight will he begun. 1 he men say thej
will not allow the freight to go and the
road officials say it will go. Tbe knight
are jubilant. The Federation of Labor
met last night and expressed their sympa
thy, pledging their support and assistance
to the knight,.
A WRECK ON THE CENTRAL.
Half a Ttoien Men Killed or Badly
Wounded by a Inlander.
Rochester, N. Y., Aug. 13. A bad
freight smash-up occurred yesterday on
the Auburn division of the New York
Central at Railroad Millt, about twenty
five miles east of this city. At 12:45 p. m.
regular freight No. 43 col. ided with an ex
tra freight train at that point Both en
gines were completely demolished. About
twenty cars were wrecked. The cars
actually leaped over the telegraph wires
along the track and tore I hem down. The
regular train was in chance of Conductor
Addison and the extra vaa in charge of
Conductor Bath. The accident was the
result of a blunder in the orders given to
tbe two trains.

Improred Situation at Buffalo.
Buffalo, N. Y., Aug. 13. As the day
advauced the situation apjieared consider
ably improved yesterday. Trains were ar
riving aud departing more nearly on
schedule time, aud through trains arrived
from the east on better time than Sunday,
and western connections were not so
greatly delayed. Train 5 arrived from
New York at 10 o'clock nt arly four hours
late, all of which time wsh lost at Syra
cuse, as she arrived at Car astota only fif
teen minutes late. The Cldoago and New
York limited trains got nway all right.
Tbe engineers and Area en were doing
their own switching yesterday morning,
and did not appear to bo in sympathy
with the strikers. There .vs no sign of a
strike on the Lake Shore or Michigan Cen
Chief Arthur's Opinion.
Cleveland, Aug. It Grand Chief P.
M. Arthur, of the Brotht rhood of Ixtec-
motive Engineers, was a. iked yesterday
whether there was any probability of a
strike of tbe engineers on theNewlork
Central railroad He replied: "I don't
think there is the slightest probability of
a strike. I bave received no complaints
and I don t think the eng neers have any
to make. The New York Central is gen
erally looked npon by engineers to be
about the best in the coun try to work for
and the men who are on it. will probably
stay. The engagement of 'scab' firemen
would not cause a strike among the en
gineers if there was no tther cause lof
No Strike nt Cbl.iago.
Chigaoo, Aug. 14 So far as present in
dications go there Is no possible chance of
the strike on the New York Central road
affecting the Chicago road t belonging to
the system. Grand Master Sweeney, of the
Switchmen's Mutual Aid axaociation, pos
itively asserted yesterday tliat "There will
be no Btrike in Chicago. 1 he Knights of
Labor will have to 'fight it out alone, and
they have no jurisdiction whatever on any
lines centering here. The oounoil of tbe
Federated railway organizations alone
can ordor a strike, and thai at present Is
not even remotely probable, or even pos
sible." An Jem Famine Apprehended.
POOOHKEEP8JE, N- Y., Ang. 14 This
eity is suSdring from an ice famine
brought on by the Centra) strike. The
local dealers have consignments of ice on
the way which have been dslayed by the
strike. The hotels and re-itauraaU are
suffering greatly and some of them may
have to close aoon. Railroad official here
say that the backbone of the strike baa
been broken. All train passed along 7s
terday nearly on time.

A (Terrific Explosion Tears Up the Earth
and Rocks, Vyheavine; a GraTeyard
and Exposing bead Men's Bones The
Shock Followed by Lurid Flames,
Which Burst from the Waters of tbe
Rlrer and Other Points.
Shklbtvillk, Ind., Aug. la Yesterday
morning at 0 o'clock a terrific explosion
occurred near Ogden's graveyard, three
miles south of Waldron, this (Shelby)
county, causing great excitement through
out the county. Ten acres of land were
blown to pieces. One acre was de
molished to the depth of ten feet: The
river flat rock was blown np and large
atones were thrown fully half a mile from
the scene. The gas is burning fifteen feet
high from the center of the river and from
fifty or more points of tbe land torn up.
The whole country is in eicitemant, and
no means are known by which the flow of
burning gas may be stopped.
What an Eye-Witness Saw.
J. II. Lowe, who lives on tbe farm
where the explosion occurred, says that he
heard a terrifie report and felt tbe earth
quivering beneath his feet. He went to
ward the graveyard and was soon con
fronted by a sheet of flame 200 feet high.
Then fifty or mora1 fountains of fire burst
from the earth. These were interspersed
with six or eight active geysers. The
river bed was torn to pieces and the huge
fissures were receiving the river's water.
Sheets of flame swept over tbe water and
a crater covering an area of about one
acre was quickly converted into a huge
hole, from which a continuous roaring
and rumbling noise proceeds.
Bodies of the Dead Exposed.
Within the bend of the- river and for
one-eighth of a mile along the stream
great rents are in the earth and the river
bed. At the bend of tbe river in tbe bank,
which is of limestone, is a fracture a quar
ter of a mile long. Stones the size of a
bouse have been hurled from their places.
The graveyard was shaken np, the skele
tons of tbe dead being distinctly seen in
the f ract unes of the earth. Gas flows free
ly from the entire surface of the ten acres,
Waa the Vpheaval Volcanic?
Many theories have been advanced as to
the cause of the upheaval. Many people
contend that it was a spontaneous com
bustion of natural gas. Others think
that the upheaval was volcanic. Mr.
Lowe, who got to the scene before the gas
ignited, is sure that the upheaval was vol
canic. The inhabitants in the locality be
came wild with excitement, and many
left their homes. Within tbe last eighteen
months there have been thirteen gas wells
sunk in the locality of the graveyard, and
while each lias had some gas none bave

arranged lengthwise of the room, with a
third one across the upper end ot the hall.
