the New York Cntl romen havo not struck
and Grand Master Borgont ot the Firemans
Bfothsrhood aaya that the Central firemen
hue no grievance I Is quite true as THE
yesterday that Local Assembly
Bos stated futordlr Lcal ombl
170 E of L comprlslna the employees on
tho n rlom division of the Contial Ilnllroad
has disbanded nnd thnt Us members have
pltoed themselves at the disposal of tho rail
road company The employees tho yards of
the Delaware and Hudson Conal Companys
ItaUroad at Albany who struck on Wednesday
out of sympathy with the Central strikers re
turned to work at 6 oclock lat evening
A story published yesterday was the cause ot
a great deal ot merriment not only amone tho
officials at the Grand Central station but
among tha strikers themselves This was to
the effect tat the railroad officials In order to
fool the reporters were running dummy
trains out of the Grand Central and op as far
al Mott Haven thence back to tho deoot again
The dummy trains referred to were of
course the empty trains that a always run
back to Mot Haven after unloading at the
station or are run down to the depot from the
Mott Haven yard to receive their passengers
MWt then leavo on their regular trips
What is probably the lat word gl the strUe
was spoken by VlcoPresldent Webb to the
Wa sDken
newspaper men yeiterday afternoon In regard
mol
gard to the position the railroad company
wonld assume In the reinstatement ol the
strikers A1e Webbs statement In written
form was sent to every division superintendent
alone 11 Una of the road and will b controll
alol Ina roa
upon the imperlnt udents In tho matter of
IDg back the old men
tlnl
The statement was A follows
A larje number of men who have bun eat on strike
er maklnf application At different points on the road
fer reinstatement the applications tulnr coupled wild
Maraneee of loyalty and promises ot fowl behavior la
b fa tare
The question betnx continually aikeft at c whit the
company poiltloa I with retard to these men I will
asjaa follows
On earefnl Inquiry X find that mar of them ara joofl
employee having heen In tlmee put rallhlul servants
t tli company anil mar ot them hare been led Into
till illfflcalty through Intimidation misrepresentation
or Irnorance I appreolate their eltnatlou ToT folly
especially I tho < ca ea where th an havo wires
and children who are dependent on them for support
I have liven the matter very careful consideration
and have Instructed ear officials aa fellowai
That eaen caae ahall ha conildcred separately and on
II merits and where the party hai been a eatlitaetury
and f althrnl the
Iatblmploy and where auperlntendent
o official Immediately 1 charf e li eatUfled or can aat
bry tha eneral lopertntendent that the man ba left
pee be extenuating elrcnmitaneei above outlined
that Ibn 1C a vacancy exuts he thai b taken on at a
new amplojee that where no vacancy nlt the name
oftha applicant will b taken and a the business 1
eraaneduliii the autumn and winter and when addl
conalderatlon tl aal help li needed hU application will receln ait due
I la however dUtlnctly nnderitood and the rule
will brlfldly enforced that th new men who have
recently and on account of thli strfte come Into our
lervleeaball not b displaced nnleas their aervlcesare
IBUtlifactory and that thoie men who were formerly
I the company employ and lft In tbii itilke but
who nnder the abovo Instructions may be reinstated
will enter the eervlce Doal old men reinitated but aa
eatlraly new employee aDd hereafter with retard to
promotion discharge assignments of work Ac they
will b retarded aa new men
Those men who have bon tttrbalent Inimical and
CetrlmenUt lo thla company aDo Ita Internte will not
ttader any consideration h taken back Into the service
Mr Webb said further Taking a man back
as a new employes means that he will not be
credited on the books of the company with
lone service and that ho will not be entitled
t any of the special privilege which he might
otherwise enjoy I am certain from what I
bare heard that many ot the men struck
against their judgment or because of tbelr Ig
norance I dont want to b had on such men
who have otherwlso beon faithful to us Vie
dont mean to be revengeful In this matter but
only jnst
onlrJust thing that bothers as at all now Is
oar freight business We have plenty of men
a work In tho freight yards nnd have more
len applying to us for work than wo can em
ploy alp our freight yards are In 1 state ot
congestion or were up to last night W o werq
In a condition similar to thnt In wnioh wo would
belt a blizzard struck us We cant work more
than so many men la each i srd There ara In

Mr Webb hopes In regard to the Btxtyfirth
slreit yard were realized At 6 clock last
nlgut the superintendents in chargo of the
yard reported that eery particle of old
freight remaining thoro had boon cleared
Rway and that the yard was ready to do regu
diu business again Freight trains arrived and
pared hourly and were Irnot for the police
men standing around no one could have told
ttoat a strike won In progress
UThe police arraugomentR for the strike con

a ever and perhaps more so now bat tbo

until G oclock this morning Thoy carried out
their programme regardless ot protests and
arguments
Capt D I Tlllmtin who had repeatedly

police were In tho hotel apparently guarding
the farmers candidate for Governor Ho was
guarded from his arrival here on Tuesday un
til ho left hoio this moraine
The split occurred at 4 30 this morning when
tho Committee on Constitution consisting
largely of Tlllmnnltes reported Tho
very Inrlely Ttmnnlos reportod lho
majority offered a constitution for adoption
Tho minority ot tho committee protostod de
claring that tbo Convention had no right to
adopt I constitution whon it was called for an
other spoclQo purpose Tho scono was one of
wild confusion when tbe arguments wore be

Efforts were made by tie ntrnlghtouts to ad

lain A P ot England who hal just arrived on
American shores for a rosplto of throe months
before the autumn eetslon of Parliament Is
just now resting R tho homo ot his wifes
father tbo oxBecretsrv ot War William P
Endloott He was found there by THK SUN
correspondent today and the latter
corresDoudelt Ilter enloyed I
pleasant chat with him retpecttua the Bohrlng
Sea controversy tho Canadian fisheries dis
pute and the reciprocity treaty proposed by
Secretary ot Btato Blnlno Mr Chamberlain
has como to this country solely on private
business nnd for a brlot rest but notwith
standing his desire to forget politics and pub
lic affairs In general ho spoko freely on those
threo Important subjects
On being asked how tbo Deb ril Boa controversy
versy concerning the seal fisheries was regard
ed In England he rOlled tbat when ho loft
homo there had been but D brief telegraphic
report of the correspondence between Secre
tary lilalne and Lord Salisbury and on that
account the public mind had not beon ablo to
form an opinion or rocoho any very definite
impression
Bo far A I myself understand the case
said he there seems to bo two loadlnc fea
tures First that the people of tho United States
demand somo arrangement for the protection
of the seals which they allego will bedostroyed
to I point dangerously near extermination I
unrestrained fishing I allowed and second
that thero appear to be some doubt in tholr
minds whether tu set up a claim for 1 mare
olsusum
As to tho demand thnt tho seals should be
protected Mr Chamberlain said Thero
cannot possibly bo any difference between the
two nations England Is not only perfectly
willing to preserve the seal fisheries and is
ready at all tlmoft to accord every necessary
protection but she has In fact an especial In
terest to do so since more than 8000 people In
London are omployed In curing and dyeing
the sealskins This Is an open and plain fact
and it sooms to mo Btrango that It has been
left out of account by tha American Government
mont In Its consideration of the case There
cannot possibly be any ground not only for 1
Quarrol it sooms wrong to USD that word but
even for difference of opinion If
Inrdllerehco I now orat
any ttmo thoro occurs any misunderstanding
though it b tho ellehtest England Is ever
ready to moot tho United States In
Unlod Btnlelin any reason
able war
A to the claim that has been set up b tho
Unltod States for a mare cmtuuru Mr ham
borlain declared such I position t bo < lb eo
to
lutely unparalleled llehrlng Uea Is no estu
ary or lake said boearnestly It is an Im
mense open sea and cannot by any construc
tion bo claimed as a mar ciatuum and It bo
longs not to one country but to all the nations
ot the world Tho claim which has partially
been net up by the United States Is especially
surprising slnca her eminent eSI clll
International law have always Insisted with
particular emphasis upon tho complete and
universal freedom of the high sea
Tho following excerpt from I loiter of Sec

After reading tbo abovo very carefully Mr
Chamborlaln thought a moment before reply
Ing Then referring flrst to tho latter portion
of the quotation he said porton
Why the consideration which Mr lilalne
makes here regarding the attltttdo which
Ureat Britain would take I any attempt woro
made to Interfere with tho rcarl fl > horles of
Ceylon Is based upon 1 puroly hypothetical as
sumption The fact thnt Iho poarl fisheries of
C eylou bavo been enjoyed by England without
molestation ever since tholt acquisition does
not by any mans slcnlfy that sbo either
regardslnow or In an event similar tn that of
the present llohrlng Boa difficulty would re
gard the waters of thnt place O her mr
annum and the amo In trno of the llsnerloa
on the Grand Banks I think It would bo more
proper for such I consideration to be made
when tho question should arfie An to tho ex
tent of tbo Injury which IB hare unld to bave
been done to the seal fisheries by Canadian
vossols It seenin to mo tnt since ns I have
already said both tho Unltod States end Eng
land are alike Interested to preserve and pro
tect the llnberles tbo question Is onn not
to much for Kecrotary Ulalno and Lord Balls
bury to decide n It is for solontlflo experts In
tbe matter
I was suggested to Mr Chamborlaln that
besides tho righu of International law thero
was the argument of bmlS rnotrt which bad
boen c Insisted on as applicable to the present
les certainly replied Mr Chamberlain
but thero the Issue hingns upon 1 quite dif
ferent term There are national and Inter
national courtesies and concessions are of ton
and rightly mado to preserve amity but to
demand as a rlelu dllTerA very materially from
requesting ns a fftvor and an olTunce oeMnsta
legal rUht Is far from being tho sale as
an offence rimtra amintiain Canada In bar
fisheries difficulty whlcu was of not dlesluillur
nature to tbat of the llehrlnc Hen did not pre
