St. I '.'m, JTo.,' Marc h Tho con
dition of iWluirx in relation to the strike
ot cmi.l'Wi tiMn the Uoiild South
western Mystein is n follows : No
fn-iulit of any Uiitl is allowed to pans
over lliV tnu ks of the Missouri I'ueifie
railroml, anil eonnemionlly' the earn

Therein an abundance of train alreacly
iiWei twi and in the yank but not a
bushel tf it ran be Rotten to th ele
vator. The number of cars thus
locked within night is about 100, and
there tt enough more scattered alontf
tho trailm within n few miles of the
clcvnU r to dwell the total to ;.00can.
None of the pniin cm be moved until
thehtrike is over. In other lines of
Imsine the elicits of the strike are
also M-inp felt to a greater or less ex
tent, the wool and eotton trades being
the rented sull'erei-s. As regards a
Hetthnnent of the strike, neither side is
w illiiig 1o tnukeaiiy delinito statement.
The nfhrials of the railroads say that
their men have no grievanres with
th?m. nd that it U imnoHsibh) for
them V reinstate the dint-hurled fore
man, IJI, at Marshnll, Texan, as they
liave nr. authority there. The Knights
of Ijdur staU that they have no cause
to call a conference of the oHic-ein of
the rui'roads at this point, as they are
htriking now simply in support of the
action taken by their brethren in
Texas, and that matter must be set
tled w.th the receivers of the Texas

of the htrike i this jxiint, and that
which will result most disastrously to
the pasw-nger trallic.is its extension to
tho yard and switchmen of the liridge
and Tunnel Company. This move in
cludes nil the employes of the com
pany cxu'pt the engineers and lire
men, the superintendent of transfer
and three yardmasters, who will at
tempt to make the transfers as usual.
The significance of the' departure can
be better understood when it is
known that men arc employed in
tho handling of the t rutin- which
pasHesiiver the bridge, and that it is
not possible for four men at each end
of the bridge to "throw" the switches
anil perform the other duties inci
dental to the business. A labyrinth
of tnuks converge at the entrance to
tho bridge and tunnel on both sides of
the river, and the switches are worked
by an automatic and complicated sys
tem of levers, which can oidy be man
aged by men trained in their use. The
places of the laUu-ers about tin yards
might readily Is supplied, but switch
men skillful in the manipulation of
the switching contrivances now em
ployed, and possessing a knowledge
of the incoming and outgoing trains,
are made by cxcrience, and their
places cannot be supplied by green

having been indulged in and a good
deal of apprehension felt as to what
tho locomotive engineers would do or
what relation thev Vre likely to hold
to the strike, Mr. 1'. M. Arthur,
chief engineer of the ftrothcrhood
of EriRinecra was interviewed at
Cleveland last night. He said briefly
that the brotherhood of Knpineers
had nothing whatever to do with the
Knights of Labor; that no action has
been taken by them in relation to the
strike and that as far as he knew
none will be taken. .

all the (.witching necessary to bring
the trains into position nt'the Union
depot Each road is obliged to use its
own i (tgine In making un and trans
ferring its ears, as none ot the bridge
engines are in use. The bridge com
pany's engineers and llremen have
not as yet gone out hut thev refuse to
do any of the work which
has heretofore been done by
the shopmen, surh as repairing,
clearing, etc. Whenever an engine
beeoines injured, or its machinery
needs cleaning, there is no one to do
the work, and the engine is put aside.
All pivsengrr trains for the Kast and
West have succeeded in starting out
this morning, Ijnt all have been more
or less ili laved on account of the dilli
rulty the few men in the yards and
depot experience in making up the
trains. At the .Missouri 1'aeilie and
Iron .Mountain ards everything is
ijuiet and no disturbance has oc
curred nnd none is expected. Spuuls
of guards appointed by the Knights of
Uibor continually patrol the yards,
protecting the company's property
and dispersing the groups of men who
hero-neat all excited in discussing
the situation, and in this wuv perfect
order prevails. A rumor to the effect
that all Knights of l.uhor employed by
all the roads w hich have yards iii
Kast St. Ixmis will strike this evening

firmed l,y one of the sugicrintcndcnts
of the bridge and Tunnel Company,
who says that such a move is certain
ly in contemplation. The Knights of
Uibor. when iiiestioned about the af
fair, tiiiiintain strict silence, and will
make no statement in continuation or
denud ot tlie minor.
A Uril-OH tCI l. OK TUK Mlssm l!l CM I I'll1 1
said to a Reporter last night: "You!
arr.aw.tre that we aiv expected to say I
nothing and siw wood, hut I will miv j
to yon confidentially that from the in- '
side I know that the extent and mean- '
ing of this trouble is far more alarm-'

dor any ircuinslaneoK. The men who
are participating in this strike are bet
ter ublo now than ever liefore to light
to the bitter end and the company
cannot refuse to resjHind to the ap-H-nlsof
the shippers very long. 1 do
not sav the strite is just or warniiited,
but 1 do say, and emphatica'ly, that it
cannot Ik1 put down as ipiietly and
iiiicklv as could be wished. It will
not stop whero it is. There is not a
freight wheel turning now, and wen
it not for the I'nitisl States mails it is
uiy opinion that passenger trains
would Is1 stopped as well. Unless a
compromise is cHi-ctoil the strike ot
lssii will ho more bitterly contested
than the one in 1ST"."
Spcciul ilis-patches received here to

struck last night
llmM m Trlloa Threatened at
I'jrrsiiuiui, I'A., March '.). There '
every indication that serious trouble
between the stnet car employes and
their employers is imminent and that
a strike may be inaugurated any day.
Recently a number of employes of the
Birmingham linn were discharged. A
committee of the Knights of Uibor,
who claim the men were relieved
from duty because they were members
of that organisation, called upon the
ollicers of the roiul and made a re
quest that the men he reinstated,
which wrh refused. The committee
then withdrew to convene an execu
tive committee of the order as soon as
possible. 1-ast night an all night ses
sion of tho employes of the Alleghany
lines waa held in that city. Tho pur
poses of the meeting or the action
taken is not known. In speaking of
the trouble a prominent Knight of
Ijihor said to-day that no orders to
strike had been issued. Kverything
was in readiness, however, to stop the
ram at a minute's notice. "You can
depend upon it," said he, "the strike
w ill come, and when it is ordered it
will bo for twelve hours' work a day
with forty minutes for dinner." It is
estimated that l.'itM) men are now em
ployed on the various lines.
It has just been learned that at the
secret meeting of the street railway
employes last night ISO conductors
and drivers, representing all the lines
in the two cities but two, were pres
ent. Nodeflnite action waa taken, but
it was decided to hold another meet
ing in a few days, when it is expected
the employes of the two companies
still out will join the organization.

great strike. Inaugurated in tho soft
coal district yesterday. This after
noon, however, a convention will be
held at w hich a plan for general ac

an ndvaneti, while others favor an itn-.
mediate strike. What Khali bo dono
will be determined to-day. The min
ers are quiet, and m fear of any dis
turbance in entertained. As stated in
yesterday's dispatches, tho men are
nearly all out in the Cumberland,

Cmioaoo, Ii.i.., March 0, A strike of
about forty men and boys out of N00
employes is in progress at tho Chicago
Malleable Iron Works, a few block
west of tint McCormick Factory. It
hits been the custom of the company
every spring to voluntarily advance
the wages of its laborers. They pro

would be paid for. The men have
boon working fifteen hours per day
without ativ extra compensation. The
action of the brewers -n reducing the
hours of labor and allowing pay for
overtime was voluntary.

I have had a cancer on my fare for flome
year, extending from one rheek bone acrota
the none to the other. It haa given me a
rreat deal of pain, at timea burning and
itching to unh an extent that it waa almiitt
unbearable. I commenced using Swift's Spe
cific in May, lsbo. and have used eight bot
tle. It ha given tbe greuteat relief by re
moving the inflammation and restoring my
I general health. W. UAKNlia.

Fer many year I waa a uffcrerwith can
cer of the noie, nnd having been cured by
the ue of S. S. S., I feel conatralned by a
aense of duty to suffering humanity to make
thia etatetnent of my caae. With the four
teenth bottle the eanrer began to heal rap
idly and aoon diaappeared. and for aeveral
month there haa been no appearance of a
ore of any kind on ray nose or face, neither
is my none at all tender to the tooeh. I
have taken about two doren bottle of S. S. S.
I am soundly cured, and 1 know that 8- S..8.
effected the cure after every known remedy
waa tried and had failed.

I had heard ot the wonderful cures of
Swilt'l Specific, nnd resolved to try it. I
commenced taking it in April, My
general health wa much improved, but the
eanoer which wa in my bren-t continued to
grow slowly but urely. Tbe bunch grew
and became quite heavy. I fcit that I must
either have it cut or die. But it commenced
diK'harging quantities of almost black,
thick blood. It continued healing around
the edge until February, when it wa en
tirely healed np and well. n
