BREAD WASTED, A STONE OFFERED
Th Supreme Council Approve the Strike
and Denounce. Webb, bat the llomb
hell Promised Falls In the Ranks of
the Striking Knights Why the De
cision Was Thus a Explained by Debs
What la Thought of It by Webb; Pow
derly Can't Do the Subject Justice
Another Strike at Chicago.
TERRK HACTK, Ind.. Aug. 26 The su
preme council of the Federation of Kail
way Employes came to a conclusion in re
gard to the Central strike at 5:15 p. m.
yesterday, but ordered that it be not given
the press until 9 p. m. Consequently at
that hour the document was made pub
lic. It is addressed "To All Labor Organ
izations, " and the pith of it in given be
Powderly' Coarse Approved.
It begins with a history of the strike up
to date, giving the reasons alleged by the
knights for striking, the attempts of Po or
derly to settle the matter with Webb, and
all the facta connected with the applica
tion of Powderly to the federation, and in
this part of the document the action of
Powderly is approved and that of Webb,
condemned. The whole matter (which is
now ancient history to the reading public)
is summarized up to the time when it was
decided to couvene the supreme council of
the federation. The council says that all
the statements made to them by Powder
ly were corroborated duriug the visit of
four of their number at the seeua. of the
trike, and the conclusion is reached that
Webb's purpose Is to disrupt the knights
and destroy all labor organizations 011 the
"Pinkerton Thugs" Denounced.
Iu the summary the council formulates
seven propositions, the gist of three of
tnetn being given above. The fourth is as
follows: "That H. Walter Webb, by the
employment of Pinkerton thieves, thugs
and murderers, vile wretches from the
slums and brothels of New York and
other cities, to kill workiugmen because
they dared to protest against his rule aud
strike for their rights, is a crime of such
enormity as will associate to the name of
H. Walter Webb forever with those who,
dressed in a little brief authority, have
used their money to secure power to de
grade their fellow-men."
More Indictment of Webb.
The sixth declares that Webb shows a
total disregard of principles of American
citizenship dear to every man worthy of
the name and reiterates the alleged words
of W. H. Vanderbilt: "The public. 1
d d." The seventh declares that Webb
assumes that the Central railway is pri
vate property, aud that his acts in the
management are not matters of public
concern; that he has a right to discharge
men without giving them a reason for
their discbarge, "disregarding tbe fact
that the corporation for which he plays
autocrat is a thing created by laws,
la the making of which tbe men
he seeks to degrade have a voice, which
once unified will bring his corporation to
the bar of justice where his millions and
the other millions be represents will
cease to he potential in directing ques
tions of right."
Encouragement for the Knights.
The pronunciamento then goes on as
follows: "In view of the foregoing facta
the supreme council puts upon its record
its unanimous and unqualified approval
of the strike ou the New York Central
and Hudson River railroad for the cause
set forth by T. V. Powderly, general mas
ter workman, as also the efforts made by
Mr. Powderly to bring the strike to an
honorable termination. In this general
xpresaion of approval of the action of
the Knights of Labor the course of Vice
Presideut Webb is as unequivocally con
demned.'' The next paragraph recites the
effort made by the council to obtain a
hearing for the discharged kuigbts, and
Can Mot Join In the Strike.
The important paragraph in the docu
ment is given below: "It now becomes
necessary for the supreme council to say,
that owiug to the fact that the order of
the Knights of Labor is not a member of
the Federation of Railway Enployes, tbe
laws of tbe supreme council do not permit
Its doing more than it has done to aid the
Knights of Labor, and its inability to par
ticipate otherwise in the strike is now
known and appreciated by Mr. Powderly."
The process of ordering a strike by the
supreme council is next given, and is very
similar to the usual course and amounts
to the proposition that if any organization
connected with the council has a griev
ance and tbe employer will not redress the
same, a strike is ordered as a last resort.
Hon Sawder for the Strikers.
The conclusion is as follows: "In con
elusion the supreme council places upon
record its high appreciation of tbe
manliness of the Knights of Labor
employed on the New York Central
and Hudson River road in strug
gling to maintain a principle sa
cred to every working man on the conti
nent and to all men who love justice and
hope for the triumph of right over wrong
as flagrant as ever stained the pages of
The paper is signed by Frani P. Sar
gent and W. A. Shehan.
THE DEBATE IN THE COUNCIL.
Some ef tbe Members In Favor of a Gen
The session of tbe council began at 9 a.
m., and did not adjourn until 5:15 p. m. ,
and during those eight hours a good deal
of eloquence was uttered on both aides.
It is impossible to say who voted for or
against the strike, but it is stated that
tbe vote was b to 4. It is also believed
that tbe representatives of the switch
men were dead against a strike, and they
could have defeated such action alone, as
it requires a unanimous vote to order a
strike. An attempt to change the con
stitution, so that a two-third vote could
order a strike was also defeated by a vote
of 8 to 4.
Not Organised to Strike.
The fact is that the Federation is not
organized to promote strikes, but to avert
them. The constitution is very plain on
this point, and in refusing to order a gen
eral strike to aid Powderly, the council
has simply obeyed the law to which it
owes its extstance. Down here the re
mark is that tbe Knights of Labor asked
the Federation for bread and has been
slven a atone not even the balm af
pecuniary support being offered. What
ever may be the opinion, however, of the
effect of the action on the strike of tbe
knights, there can be no doubt that the
council has at the first opportunity given
it to show it colors, choseu those of con
servatism, prudence and obedience to
its own laws.
Status of the Federation.
In discussing the action of the council
last night K. V. Debs, grand secretary,
aald: "The question of rendering financial
support to the striking Knights of Labor
was not considered in any form. That is
something with which we have nothing to
do. We have given them our moral sup
port and we can go no farther. If any of
tne separate orders composing the Feder
ation want to assist the knights financial
ly they are at liberty to do it. As a mat
ter of fact the knights have not asked for
anything of the kind, and I believe that
Mr. Powderly will be satisfied with - onr
decision and I certainly do not believe
that he expected us to order a strike in
behalf of his men."
As to Individual Members.
"The position of the strikers who are
members of the federation and also of the
Knights of LaborJ' continued Debs, "is
just "this. By striking they have acknowl
edged their allegiance to th3 knights and
to that body they must look for support.
Not having acted under our constitution
or by our orders we cau not help them.
They violated our laws in strikiug. al
though we coiucide that, having subse
quently obtained tbe sanction of the exec
utive board ol the knights tueir actions
were legalized by that body.'1
A Question for the Future.
"Does to-day's action closti the connec
tion of the Federation with the Central
strikef Mr. Debs was asked .
"That," he replied, uia a t uestion that
cannot be answered at this time. The
council has adjourned subj-ct to tbe call
of the chair. New developments, compli
cations or entanglements aro likly to arise
at any time. Some of otr firemen, for
Instance, may be asked to take the plaoes
of the strikers. Should they refuse, then
they may be discharged. Iu nu.cn nn event
the services of the supreme body would
again be called into play."
Paralyzed the Local nights.
Ixlenl Knights of Labor art paralyzed at
the result of the appeal of their chiefs.
They had confidently expei ted that the
Federation would rush to Powderly's as
sistance and through the medium of a
general tie-up endeavor to bring Webb to
terms. The cause of the me'i on the Cen
tral, they say. is a lost one nud with the
defeat goes the union, the prestige and
the strength of the order.
A Telegram to Powderly.
At 6 p. m. Sargent seut the following
telegram to Powderly. "The supreme
council adjourned this aft -moon after
carefully considering the strike in all its
details. You will notice the ret-ultof ourde
liberations in to-night's dispatches, which
it is hoped will meet with yt ur approval.

Press representative showed itrand. Mas
ter Workman Powderly the dispatch from
Terre Haute saying tiiat the t trike would
not be ordered by the Federntion. Pow
derlr said that it was the first intimation
lie had received of such act ion, but de
clined to talk, saying that it would not
lie policy for him to make any comments.
He did not sevin to be very much sur
prised or downfalleu at the result, but
went to bis supper in good si irits. Lo
cal labor leaders, however, I Hiked very
glum, and were evidently very much dis
pleased at the action of the cot neil. Sec
retary Hayes said: "If the dispatch is
true it meaus a single-handed light with

El Paso, Tex., Aug. 2a Sunday after
noon this city was visited by the heaviest
rainstorm ever known in this section.
The streets were rushing torrents of water,
two and in some places three feet deep.
Considerable damage was done by the
flooding of ground floors and cellars. At
the same hour there was a cloudburst just
across the river on the side of the moun
tain alove Paso del Norte, and a mighty
river came rushing down the mountain
side, sweeping mountain huts and people
before it. Almost the entire city was
flooded, but tbe main body of the turbu
lent water swept into the residence street
and passed through the city, leaving de
struction in its wake.
Itarely Ksraped with 1.1 le.
Between thirty-five aud forty residence
houses were leveled to the ground. People
living iu I ho hotiees swept down by the
flood barely escaped with their lives.
They did not have time to save furniture
or clothing, all of which was lost. A

them away. The Hood left sixty families

of the most terrible ever seen on this
coast. The vessel sailed from here last
March with 'MO Chinese fishermen and a
full salmon canning outfit. In April she
struck on a sunken rock in Cook's inlet
and sank iu aliout twenty minutes. The
Cbineso went mad with terror and came
swarming tip from tbe hold and tried to
capture the lifeboats.
Abandoned to Their Fate.
Tlie whites launched the boats, and
allowed about 100 Chinese to get in them.
Then they putolT and left the remainder
to their fate. Many of the Mongolians
rushed into the rigging, others jumped
into tbe sea, and the remainder went down
with the ship. Only thirteen were after
ward picked up. One was not found un

Mary's Bad Bargain.
Ansonia, Conn., Aug. 26. On Friday
afternoon a happy couple boarded the
Housatonlc express at a small town up in
Massachusetts. Instead of taking tbe
drawing-room car they went into the
smoker and made themselves perfectly at
home. From their conversation it was
soon learned by all tbe men in the car that
they had been married that day and were
on their way to speud the honeymoon at
the groom's home iu Jersey City.
The Bride Develops a "Msh."
It was also evident that there had been
a great deal of liquid refreshment at the
weddiug feast and that it was just begin
ning to get in its work. When the train
reached Merwinsville the couple had had
several little spats and bad blood began
to get warm bet ween them. At this sta
tion a dapper little chap, a drummer, got
on the car and sat in front of and facing
the bride. She was at once smitten with
bisdtidish charms and began an outrage
ous flirtation with him.
Resulting in an arly Klopcnicnt.
Tbe groom objected to this, and chas
tised the little chap, but tbe bride sided
with the vanquished. When Hawleyville
was reached the little man left tbe
train and stood at the car window. Just
as the traiti started be beckoned to the
bride, who jumped up, reached the car
platform, aud swuug gracefully off. Her
husband of a few hours started after her,
but as the train was going at a good speed
a brakeman detained him.

At the next station, Botsford, thirteen

the rabbi, who is one of the lead
ers in the progressive movement in Ju
daism, determined to aid him. Being un
willing to act in the matter himself, Ber-
