It was said on behalf of the railroads that they had not con futed to "mediation" but were con ferring" with Messrs. Neill and Knapp. a fine philological distinction being made. Instead of being satisfied with a board of three arbitrators, as provided fnr m the Krdman act for the settle ment of disputes between railroads and employees, it w.w said that the rail- rn.ui wanted a commission of nine mem br appointed, the commission to in- i Jin 1" a railroad shipper, a consumer n banker, a farmer, a manufacturer, an .vtny officer, a naval officer, a railroad manager and a railroad engineer. 'I here being nothing in theErdman law rr ering a commission of this character or s.e the railroads have no objection to President Taft naming the members of ti" hoard. Willie it was not admitted on behalf of (ho railroads that they wish tr. -how that if there is to lie an increase in wages for the engineers there should nn increase In freight rates Chief Warren S. Stone and his lieutenants in the brotherhood are convinced that this v hat the railroad managers are trying tiring about After the conference with the sub i immittee of the railroad managers l ommif.gioner Neill talked with the re porters last evening on what he and ludgn Ki.app hoped to accomplish. Mr, Neill liiitl not specify whether the railroad Men were mediating or simply confer ririg with him for the purpose of havinga commission of nine members appointed, "I cannot see why there should be a i ubble over words," Commissioner Neil mkI "You can call it anything you like. What we believe is that each side is mak ing a sincere effort for conciliation and a H't'Iement of the differences." ommit-sioner Neill admitted that it .i the first time that Government repre n r.tatives had volunteered their services .inler the Krdman law, thus establishing i. piece dent. Heretofore either side to tii" depute had asked the members of tJ.e Commerce- Court to mediate. i otumishioaer Neill Insisted that it m.ni" no difference whether or not he and .1 lge Knapp were acting under the ljdman act; they were acting as Federal (.fliciali and the expenses of conducting the conferences would be paid by the (overnment. Mr. Neill said politics had ' "'lung to do with the fact that he and 1 .dge Knapp had offered their services; nrti President Taft had not been con - iieii and that Secretary of Commerce a' 'I Labor Nagel did not know they were (r.ming to New York, although he had s.'ii them since they came here but had i.i t talked witli them on the subject of the Ihie.itoned engineers' strike. 1 1 i our practise," said Commissioner " . i "not to tell anything of the. negoti- iih until they have been completed. i-l. all follow this rule in this case, so ai not discusH what happened with the ..ci.id men to-day."

"On the other hand If there are no sympathetic strikes among trainmen nnd conductors public sentiment will soon scare the engineers Into submission to reason, because public sentiment tins in Its memorv the l.tiglish coal strike, our own coal strike situation, the French railroad strike and above all the McNa mara cases. There is a tremendous feeling agalnt the unions Just now. The public has come to understand that If we give the engineers what they ask on demand we shall go bankrupt. There isn't so much to that old argument about the danger of giving one class of men n raise liecnuse that will stimulate other strikes. Wn nre confronted with that situation all of the time anyway."

FIGHTING OTHER YELLOWS, One TuxIcnIi Company Unjoins Own er of Tun Orange I'nrs. 'Hie Yellow Taxlcali Company has begun a fight upon the twenty or moro individuals and concerns which it says have been deceiving the public by the operation of taxis filled up In imitation of those of the complaining concern. Yes terday the Yellow Taxlcab people secured from Justice Blschoff in the Supreme Court a temporary injunction restraining Alfred Riancherl of 231 West Fortieth street from operating a couple of yellow cars. Next Monday was set down for the argu ment as to whether the injunction should be made permanent. benedick M. Holden, attorney for the taxicab company, said last night that his clients had lost much through the in curslons of the "yellow fakers" Into the taxicab field. They had lmpoed upon tne regular patrons or tne company and had caused many complaints to come in because of the unfair treatment which he said they accorded to those who were misled. According to the lawyer a good Dart of the Yellow Taxicab Comtianv's assets consists In the publicity which had neen given to its cars ana service, and this was linked inseparably with theorange color of its cars. The company had suffe-ed a good deal, went on Mr. Holden, because its regular patrons were used to having the benefit j of a charge account. Numbers of people, some of them from out of town, had had unpleasant experiences while shopping or going to trains when they found that their credit cards were not accepted by the drivers of- yellow cars. Mr. Holden said "the.imposters" were in the habit of overcharging also. Altogether Mr. Holden thinks there arc about twenty different groups of yellow taxienbs operated with the view of "mis leading the public." The Yellow Taxicab Company recently bought out the entire stock and assets'of the Connecticut Cab Company. ' KNIFE MADE SUBWAY PANIC. Five ttondlea llnnK hhonscd the nrnnil Ontrnl I'lntforuis. Five youths singing and yelling nn the southbound platform of the (irand Centra subway M.ition during the rush hour last night attracted the notice of Guard Franklin Brico and he told them to be quiet. There was an argument right there. The five said that this is a free country and that they had a erfect right to make all tho noise they wanted. Brico reached for the noisiest, who brought a knife from his pocket' and lunged. A lot of excited passengers gathered and the youth with a knife was blocked off from the guard. There was a free fight for a while. Tho waving knife then urged a passage through the crowd and the five ran across the overhead bridge to the northlxnind platform. Urico, with an escort of the bravest in the crowded station, followed while women screamed and scampered aside. Tin live panted througli the north liound platform, flourishing the knife vigorously. Men and women pressed dangerously close to the platform's edge to avoid them, (itiard Hrlco, re enforced by two policemen wuo had come at the danger signals tooted by all the subway trains in the station, followed the live to the north end of the platform, (.'hosing between surrender and the tracks they gave themselves up He with the knife said he wa Tony Maola. 25 years, of 2:u Chrystie street.

The strike of 1877 was due largely to the dissatisfaction resulting from a cut of 10 per cent. In wages made by a number of tho ble roads. The commencement of the troubles was the strike of the trainmen I Many cattl on the July I all the Northern roads between the Missis sippi nnd New Kngland. The strikers took forcible possession of the tracks at all the principal junctions and pre vented the forwarding of any goods, preventing in many cases the passage of passenger trains. To rescue the railways from the lawless usurpation of the striking hands militia was called out, and in States where these were unable or unwilling to make a stand against lawbreakers I'nlted States troops were used. In the large cities and manu facturing towns of the West riotous dem onstrations and uprisings occurred and thero were manv conflicts between mobs and troops in which hundreds were killed or Injured. In the height of the strike at least 100,000 railroad employees wei out, nearly 7,000 miles of railroad were controlled by the strikers. Including four great trunk Hues, the New ork t entrai. the Erie system, the Pennsylvania and the Baltimore and Ohio, and their middle West branches, and the serious effects of the trouble were felt by tho roads west of tho Mississippi Itlver. The coal miners increased th gravity or the situation by going on a general strike which was more determined and prolonged than the railroad strike. The strikers had demanded of the Bal timore and Ohio 3.50 aud $3 a day for engineers. $2.50 for conductors and $2 for firemen and brakemen. Similar de mands were made on the other principal roads. There was considerable public sympathy for the strikers, which was reflected in sympathy strikes by coal miners, factory hands and other laborera whose wages were low To these were joined the dangerous classes, the unpro ductive, untaught multitude, which were responsible for much of the rioting and destruction of property. A battle between strikers and militia men at Martinsburg, W. Vo was followed rapidly by disorders in all directions. President Hayes issued a proclamation warning citlr-ens to oley the law and respect prosrty. It had little effect. There was bloody fighting in the streets of Baltimore. Pittsburg. Philadelphia and other cities. For a tune Pittsburg was in the grip of a mob, Regiments of Pennsylvania trootis were forced to fire valleys and were immediately at tacked by thousands who were not only well untied with stolen rille-s and shotguns but who had three cannon The soldiers were driven to u roundhouse and there besieged. Burn ing oil cars were shunted to the round house and finally the soldiers were driven to the streets, finally retreating across the Allechenv Biver ufter many had Um'II killed or wounded Then the mob sacked freight cars, carrying off a rich loot hv carloads and wagonloads, Bar rels of spirits were tapped and drunk on the spot That day, July 20. 1877. in cendiarism was widespread Hundreds of cars and other railroad property were burned. Tim direct loss ot railroad prortv was estimated at liu.nuu.timi. Armed 'kinds of aroused citizens, not the militia, finally quelled the mobs and brought a measure ot order to tne citv Toward the end of July the strikers began to waver, having lost public sym- painv,ano oy.iugusi wumi-uutu ireiin and pnssenger had been resumed on most of the roads. A sequel to the railroad strike was the coal strike centring in Pennsylvania which lasted through most of A neust and occupied thousands of troops. It was ended by an advance of 10 per cent in wages. In t he int r venlng years there were minor disturbances and occasional threats of general strikes, but it was not until Slay, 1WM, that a strike was inaugurated at the works of the Cullman Palace Car Com panv, nt Pullman, nerx Chicago, which nt length developed into the greatest contest between labor and capital ever undertaken in this country. It originated in a movement by the Pullman employees for higher wugc, which tho car company claimed to be unable to grant. After the strike had extended for several weeks at the Pullman works with no prospect of success, it was decided to extend it to Die railroads, which on demand had refused to cease running Pullman cars with their trains. With the exception of the engineers, who had a brotherhood of their own, neatly all the railroad employees of tho West had already been organized into an association culled tho American Hallway Union of which r.ugene , uebs was president This association come to the front and took charge of tho strike. The whole trouble becumo a test of strength between me American nuiiwuy union and tho association nf railwuv officials known as the Hallway General Managers Association. 'I hu Hist step by the union was on June 20, when it ordered out an us men em nlovecl on the Illinois Central Kailroad, This was quickly followed by orders affecting other roads, so that by June 2H eleven railroads centring at Chicago had been ufTected besides a large numlier of roads extending throughout tne west, including the Southern Pacific. Northern Pucifio and Santa !'' systems. Bofore July I. railroad traflio had almost entirely been suspended throughout the West and South. 'I ho greatest trouble was at Hammond, Ind.. near Chicago, beginning July 7. A riotous mob ussembled there, nulled train crews from their engines ana beat them. During the night they burned cars, disabled engines and blocked the tracks. The sheriff's deputies and the police were powerless to restrain tho mob and as there was no hoie of the Indiana inllitlu arriving in time an apjieal was sent to the Federal authorities In Chicago for o force of regulars. A company of tiiiriy-iive men were sent out at once and went attacked with sticks and stones At length the rioters rushed tho soldiers llrcd on, tine man was killed were hurt. President Clevo- laud announced that the I'nlted States mails must not lie Interfered with and to protect the mails he sent an ample force of regulars to Chicago under Gen. Nelson A. Allies. His action was bitterly criticised by strike sympathizers ,ut generally nppiot ed by the country.

Detectives Tell nf Itomnntle II la It Finance and Frnnd. Chicago, April 24. James Lawrence Huston, president of half a doyen legiti mate corporations, member of many clubs, and possessed of property worth nearly $1,000,000, was arrested to-day In Cincinnati, when he called to close n $25,000 deal. Huston will be brought back to Chi cago to-morrow to answer to six chirges of forgery and seven charges of note lilting, by which It Is alleged he victimized as many banks out of 110.000. The arrest of Huston, sayn William K. Webster, assistant superintendent of the Plnkerton National Detective Agency, means the conclusion of a ro mantic career in high financing in which the legitimate was hopelessly in volved with the criminal. Huston lias a luxurious home at n6SS South Park nvenue. where his wife, Mrs. Susan Sutton Huston, tins been the hostess at many social affairs the put nenson. Hustons method, the detectives say, was to find business men whose credit was slightly Impaired nnd give them an opportunity to exchange J25.000 of their own notes for nn equnl amount of his notes. They believed that their notes would be carried as collateral by him, while the use of their own names per mitted them to negotiate the valueless notes signed by Huston. Huston, they say. would Immediately discount the business man's notes nnd leave the vicinity. When the business man's notes fell due an accomplice Is said to have visited the victim, told him that Huston's notes were worthless and advise compromising the case with the holders of the paper rather than face criminal prosecution. This usually was done. NAVAL MILITIA REVIEW. IT SOMETIMES HAPPENS that a great master like Stevenson can stir the heart of the public with the, simplest of words.
