Just after midnight nit tbc locomotive firemen niut members of the Brotherhood of Locomotlvo Firemen on the Hudson Iltvcr Division of the Now York Cen tral joined the striking Knights of La Lor who went out Friday night. This defection of firemen will, it Is fonrod, completely block tmvol over tho New York Central between this city nnd Al bany, as tho llrothcrhood of Locomo tive Engineers are pledged not to run with any firemen except those belong ing to tho llrothcrhood of Locomotives Firemen. It 1ms been definitely de cided to Btrlko on tho Lako Shore, Michigan Central and the Michigan bouthern today. It Is determined to ttoup the main lino of the Central all tho way from New York to Chicago. The New York Central olllclals say this inomlng that tho firemen are still on duty, and that no one of them hare deserted their posts. An air of quietness prevails In and Ml through the Grand Central freight nnd passentrcr doonts during last night and this morning. No olllclals were seen about the depot last night. Additional notices woro posted ab jut the yard. announcing the determination of the company to tight tho strike and promising protection to nil employes who remain nt work. 3111k cars came In (luting the night, between 1 and i o'clock, but not as many as usual. Only 1 100 cans of milk were received. Usually 2,200 cans come In. Tho equal price of milk at the yard Is from $ 1.10 to $1 liu per can. This morning It was Fold at $1 73 per can. Nearly all the dealers were sunplled, and to morrow It Is expected all will be right and milk selling at tho usual price. At !1 o'clock this morning Inspector llyrncs was informed by the New York Central Company that It was proposed to move the immense accumulation of freight which was stored on the tracks on tin- west side of the city from tho freight depot. In St. John's Park, to Seventy ninth street and the North Itlvtr. More UiBn 2,000 loaded cars have accumulated on the West Side tracks since the strike began at 7 o'clock on Friday night. It Is the purpose of the company to move the cars by dummy engines to the fnlght yards at Sixty Fifth street nnd tbc Hudson Itiver, where the trains will be then taken North over the road by the regular engines. Inspector Steers was uttaiieuio tawe cnarge oi tite sttua tku at !t. John's Turk, ami an extra culinary force of wen was put under Ids command, who were at once sta tioned along the line of the road from fit John's l'ark to the uptown yards on the river front. The police boat Patrol was ordered to the pier at the foot of West Slxty flflh street, where she will He to prevent any disturbance at that point, In the event of an attempt on the part of the strikers or their sympathisers to com mit any acts of violence in the yards of the company at that point. According to the programme, as laid out by the company's oUielaU, no effort will probably be made to move any trains on the freight lines until this afternoon, but that plan may be altered os a mo ment's notice In the event of an emer gency Other police arrangements are similar to those of Saturday. Three passenger trains were run out this morning from the Crawl Central depot Iirotherbood firemen ami en jdtecis were on duty, hut General Com uilitceinan Holland awl Secretary lUyei of the Knights said they would go out in a few hours. No attempt was wad bv the Central to run the regular New York and Harlem local trains, though some through trains stopped at the f mall stations. Two freight trains were f!Ot out of the Sixty-flftk-street yard One hundred awl twenty-live policowen were on guard there, but the striker made no demonstration. These freight trains were run by green hands. No freight trains could be run out frow the Thirty third street or St John's l'ark yards. The anticipated strike of the Knights en the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Kite roads did mot take place. Vice President Webb for the Yaader biltsslill refuses to submit the case to ailiitratiun or to confer with the Knight tf Labor He said thu woreieg that the bat kbone of the strike, so far as the Kcw York end was etweeraed, was broken. He was, however, much coa cirued about the trouble at Syracuse and Albany. Early this storting he telegraphed Governor Hill as follows. C j: tilu Michael Auer, """'wt-ilBg the loiiuU sit our livwitt yards near Syracuse, iiul Uo has been there with the wwtiii for tU ('Hat twtuty-four hours, t-f'f-rl the hlitnil of Uuuudaj: County that he has Uiuiiuu.til by the commanding general to &LrLud operation until the arrival of M-joi lieueral faraswottb, who ha Uiu ordered to investigate.

N o reply to this had been received ub u lo o clock. uc PrudoVnt Webb says that all of the New ork Central through trains to the West will be run out to day. West ii u ldtlioad uica have beea brought oa ly i Uc liaderbiUs to take the place of the bi i tkcra. Four new tower ae were ttciutd to lake the place of those work it,g ou Saturday. ii icpi has out as yet sent any WUJ rtllh u,;mJ to the troLblc ou the I , ' eiv. of the Wiiku.,; iWtteUuicU, ami yardmen returned to work on the Weil Shore this mornlne. The engt mers and firemen stuck to their posts. Tire 585 freight train was got out, but Sttrxilntemlent Williams sfld that no mote freight would be moved until 3 o'clock to night. Secretary Hayes and Mr. Holland of the Knight' executive board had nothing to say this morning. They, tn well as Mr. Valentine, the local head of the Knights, knew nothing of the various reports relative to the strike of the engineers and fire men. The trains on the New York, New Haven and Hartford itond were all on time. At 8 o'clock the Company ills patched a special for Boston, on board of which were the members of Grand Army Post 140. They expect to reach Boston by 3 o'clock this afternoon. Mr. Webb said later that he was In receipt of numerous letters from stock holders In the company, who expressed the utmost satisfaction with the course he was following. One letter, the author of which he refused to divulge, said that he "must not deviate one hair from the position taken, nnd I am willing to sustain, glaJlv, my share of the loss that may fall upon the company." Mr. Webb added: "That gentleman holds over ljOOO shares of stock in our syctcm." lathing has been hoard by the ofllclals from Mr. Depew. Vlco President Webb says that on account of tho abandonment to-day of four local trains between hero and Poughkccpsto All trains except the through express trains have been ordered to stop nt every station north of Spuyten Duyvll. Trains on the Harlem I Oil road will also be sent out promptly except six locals between hero and White Plains, which will bo left olT the timetable for the present. The Buffalo express loft promptly nt -i.STin. m. At 0 o'clock a passenger train rolled over the Harlem Ihilrond on lime, and nt 0:20 another passenger train left on tho Central track. As the day woro on trains came In nnd went out pretty much as If there was no strike at all, and the general opinion of those not interested was that the back bone of tho strike was broken. The trains arriving and departing were manned by Western llallroad mon In most Instances. The sum nnd sub stance of the situation was expressed by a striker, who said: "Unless the firemen nnd engineers join us, we are lost." Later Governor Hill replied to the dispatch that was sent by Sir. Webb, lie telegraphed: "I will do all that Is necessary. Mr. 'W ebb received a dispatch from Spuyten Duyvll stating that this morn ing's freight trains had pasted that point safely. Tho Mltcmtlon at Albany. Ain.sv, N. Y.. Aug. 11. A pecu rar feature of the strike, as noted this motnlng, is that the engineers, firemen nnd conductors claim th it no matter what their sympathies are they will be forced to ttrllee to protect their lives. They say that the few new switchmen engaged are Incompetent and Ignorant, and that they take their Uvea In their hands when they run n train. Two thirds of the switches have no attend ance whatever. They further assert that the trains of fifteen ttad seventeen cars sent out have but one trainman ami 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. Governor Hill was busy this morning semilog out telegrams and receiving delegations. Treasurer K J. Price and a committee from 1). A. 3 ia called at 0 o'clock. Mr. Price said they came to assure the Governor that the men would remain nulet nnd do no harm tn the railroad's property. Mr. Price said that one of the oflfcers of the order had gone to Dewltt to quiet any disturb ance existing. The Governor. In reply, said that no militia would he ordered out at the lequeet of the railroad com lieny. If there was trouble at any point a messenger from the Adjutant General's oltice would be seat, and no troops would go out unless he deemed it necessary. General Farnsworth had gone to De wltt and Syracuse, and was reporting things as quiet there this morning. Later Governor Hill admitted to a United Press reporter that Vlee Presi dent Webb had telegraphed this mora lag for troop to protect freight trains at various points where they expected to move them today. Governor Hill replied that troops would not be ordered out unlets there were good reasons of serious trouble. At 9 o'clock this morning a train of thirty rive freight cars was moved from West Albany to Karner's, a distance of two miles, but no attempt was wide to wove tbew farther. Detective Pinker -toa k massing his men near the freight bridge, and It is thought that an attempt will be wade to wove trains. If there l. serious trouble will ensue. A dis patch, dated New York, stating that tramc in its entirety had been resumed was received with howls and hisses by the assembled strikers this wuraiag. It is stated to-day that the engineers at a meeting decided to send a cowwu aicalloa to New York asking for four ceats a wile U place of three and a half, and saying that in case of refusal the wen would go out At the road yards, both here and at West Albany, everything is evtrewely quiet and the men are sot to be found near the rail road. This see to annoy both the railroad people and Detective Ptukerlon, both of whom are at a lo-s to know what it means. The coa&deavce of the wen seetus to say that the en gineers and nremea are with thew and a complete shut-down is evidently an ticipated by the railroad company. Ar. Bisaell, the general wperiuteadestt, tried to talk cheerfully of the outlook, but later adwitted that although trains were running the sUuattcw was sot im proved. At 1 o'clock this ajtentoo eipari leadcut Bisaell said: "The HiiAtmtmt thatnxvwen hete or at aVAstaectady have gosw o-tt is uatrue. Kot oe tw tua has salt the road and we ate m afraid they will." The strikes have appointed a cow adttee to wait upon the chief of police and sheriif awl ask that the Ptueetoat wen he driven out of the city. They claim that theme have ao right, under the osdiaaace. to cany weapons or do police duty. The arrival of the freight train shut out ftoat New York is aaxhwaly looked fur bete. The freight bridge is block aded aad the draw h opea. but it nay he the touwlon to take the tialu over the psiwnaTr bridge. MAtuaa at jmruae. giUAttrt, K Y, Aug. 11.

It was expected that three companies of soldiers would more to East Syracuse at midnight oratdaybreak. At 3 o'clock this morning one platoon of the Fifth Battery marched to East Syracuse, Intt dhl not remain, and not only they, but the Fortieth Separate Company, which had been there since Saturday night, were called back to the armory here by order of Adjutant General Porter, who snhl that he would hold the State forces till he could personally Investigate the situation.

There Is, however, a bad blockade of freight In the yards and mails nnd passengers are badly delayed. One or two trains only camo in from the East yesterday, but mot trains going oan and west were dispatched as usual. The travel ers were not numerous, for the deparW tire of trains was uncertain. An official In the Brotherhood of Locomotive En glnecrs Is reported as saying he did not think the strike would last very long, and that neither the engineers nor fire men will go out to aid the strikers.

Fifty Plnkerton men arrived this morn ing nnd arc tcattcrcel along tho tracks. There Is not the slightest necessity for their presence, nnd thev nro likely to excite trouble. Freight trains nre mo tionless In the yards of tho Central Hudson, but the Fllcbburg Corapiny Is meeting with no difficulty In moving freight nnd passenger Irnnic. Not more than half n hundred persons are hang ing around the depot, and the strikers ate not molesting any of the new hands. I'mptnyes f!o Out nt Homo. Komk. N.

Grand Master Sargeant of the Brother hood of Locomotive FIromen received many telegrams from tho New York Central strikers vesterday asking him to come East, but he declined to take any official action In regard to the strike, s tying that the Brotherhood was not consulted In Its Inception, and was not called upon to use Its usual means of settling grievances with railroad companies.

The firemen on me Yamlerullt lines running Into Chi cago had not been called out at mid night, but a spirit of uneasiness per vades the ranks of all employes of the Lake Shore and the Michigan Central. The Lake Shore announced last night that it had abandoned the fat waii from New York due to arrive at 1.30 this morning. No reason was assigned for this by the officials awl they could not say whether or not there was trouble on the east end of the Lake Shore or If it was on account of trouble on the New York Central. The postal authorities announced that no walls are being sent out over the Lake Shore awl Michigan Central. WIND, R41N, HAIL.; I.iC liluutt Suunil buroiit by TerriMc TtiuiHler Storm.

The House temmittee proceeded with the Investigation of civil service methods this morning, with Messrs. Hopkins, Grecnhnlge, and Stone. Mr. Lyman continued his statement of the manner In which the I'ostofllce Depart ment 1 conducted under civil service rules. Mr. Lyman said that the poslofllce In spectors were placed under civil service rules by Postmaslor-Genornt Dickinson. The applicants for postoillcc Inspectors arc examined on penmanship, copying, descriptions cf persons and buildings, atlthmetlc, bookkeeping nnd accounts. United Slates geography, postal laws and service. Tests nre tried for A MAN'S (IKNF.1IAI, tSTKM.tOKN'CB nnd ability to comprehend situations In which he Is placed. No special test Is used for his nblllty ns a detective. In spectors arc not only detectives, but have nlso n great deal to do with tho business management of tho service. The questions arc prepared under the dlrcctfon of the Chief Examiner. They arc bated on those prewtred by experts. Mr. Hopkins How "mnnv Inspectors havo been appointed under the civil service? Mr. Lyman Ycry few havo been ap pointed under the civil service rules, but n largo number have been appointed by non competitive examination for promotion. Tho examination and grad ing are the same as those of n compel! live examination for appointment. The names for promotion come VHOM THE fOSTMAKTHK OENKRW.. Mr. Hopkins Wo woidd like to know, Mr. Lyman, what are the dally duties of yourself and colleagues Mr. Lyman said that ho would quote from St. l'attl on that subject' "Ileslde all this the dally care of all the Judges." It Is rather difficult to give these, but of late the morning twill goes to Gov ernor Thompson. The Commission has not divided the work so that each Com missioner has a separate line of work. A dh Islnn of work would not lie to the benetlt of the Commission. The Im portant correspondence is of course signed by the president. Mr. Hopkins Why Is the Commis sion composed of representatives of two parties? Mr. Lyman In order that their action would be non irtlsan. I, myself, am not In favor of triumvirates, ami think that the service could UK I1K1TKK MANAGED HY OXK HK.M. Mr. Hopkins Is It not a fact that In previous commissions three members bae retarded its efficiency. Mr. Lyman It Is. There have lea times when one or more of the Com missioners dhl not attend to his duties and the Commission would have to wait, whereas If there had been a single Com missioner the matter would have been attewled to at once. In answer to Mr. Stone's question as to tue reason ot tue increase or. civil sen ice clerks, Mr. Lyman replied that It was due chleriy to the Increase of the postal service. The postorHce at Chicago has increased from 700 employes to 1,300 In seven years. The increase la departmental service its-, come largely tromtae classi fication of the service oa June 39, 1SSS. During Mr. Cleveland's administra tion nearly 1,800 clerks were added under eivil service rules to the Depart ments at Washington- About 00 per cent, of the clerks now In service were In set vice prior to l&Kl. In 1W0 there were 8,31'.' clerks In the Department service, 2,'.' in euetoms servke. l.',MI6 postal service. Mr. Stone If New York bad lea times as waay persons employed as the Stat? of Illinois would an appointment have gone to New York oa account of its population" Mr. Lywaa It would. The law pro vides that the appointments shall be ap pointed accordiag to populatioa. The Cowwissioa lake the Departmeais brought under the civil service law as they Had them without refereuce to their prior condition. It would aot be wise to wake appointments with reference to the coadilioo of the service prior to the time that it came uadef civil servke law. It would be batter to LET TUEhH lUTTKUe AWcT THEM WtlU. Oae effect to equalize the sppoiituets frow (Hates, would he to hasten re movals frow thorn State which hare aa excess ; tf , for iaataace, Kw York was wade to watt uatil llliaois caught up to it.

Mr. Stoae Why ant aot the cu. of iHsmissal reported by the hc'iieU ef luxcaus to the Cornmlnina Mr. Lyman I think tt would gtcv .. beaeat the service if that causes wea reported. A utfggaUoa tothateffot however, had beea uaJavotably re celled by the PresitVa At pre eat, ao written etatetueat of the can; oi oaawiasal ia made.

The deck of the steamer was, how tvor, too weak to stand the strain of the great crowd, nnd a portion of it giving nwy, about 100 of the excursionists came crashing down on the deck below, ami so great was the confusion that the men at tho wheel secmotl to have lost their heads, for the next Instant after the crash all control of the boat was lost, and swlnglnr out of the regular channel It struck a rock and remained hard nnd fast on It. A panic Immediately onsuedon board. A tush was made for tho llfo-preeervers, women fainted, clothes were torn, and all on board were more or less cut and bmltctl. Finally order was restored nnd n boat sent ashore nnd word of the accident telegraphed to Montreal. Another boat was sent to the scene, but the terror stricken excursionists refused to go on her, and demanded they be brought to Montreal, which was done, nnd the excursionists reached here early ycttcrday morning.

Th Tim' Washington correspondent says: The Hoar resolution, that has been an nounced at the caucus resolution of the Ilepubllcans, has never been approved by the caucus, for It ia asserted by He publican Senators that the caucus has not seiopted any proposed change in the rule. The proposition, In the language of Mr. Hoar, doe not appear to be ai Ideal one. It does not overcome th; inlt'al dirtieully, which Is the reacbinz of a vote on the proposition to change the rule. The sugcestion that debate is to con clude In a "reasonable time" would be construed differently by different Sena tors. Mr. II., for example, would not regard It an unreasonable time for each St nator to occupy two or three days In speaking for the Exceptional bill, even It be tilled up a dozen pages of the llievnl eveiy day, but he would regard discussion of the tariff as superfluous, and any time consumed in opposing it as not "a reasonable time." An attempt now to pass the Hotr resolution before the Tariff bill is dis posed of would not only make the date of the passage of that bill very uncer tain, but it would make it almost abso lutely certain that the session would be continuous, awl that the rule would be under consideration when Congress was about to expire. As the only rea son for changing the rules ts to enable some of the old timers to get through the Kkctioa bill, it ! believed that it will stop in the Committee oa liules until the second half of the session. Senator Washburn of Minnesota has just returned from a visit to his home. He ha talked with people at St. Paul, Minn., Chicago aad other points, aad he says that he can Awl no general de mand for the passage of the Force bill, and that tt ought aot to he take up at this session. This wakes it appear that Meters. Plumb, Teller, Paddock. Ia galls, Waahbur.
