The Effect of the UonM SfriSe-
Prelght Traffic Coinplrldj Mint
Off-Labor Xutes.
fr. mmx, mo., Man-ii 10. jSot a
itonnd of freight has posctl over the
j;reat bridgo into or out of St. Louis
Hiiicc the cmployi-a of the Bridge and
Tunnel tympany struck at the com
mand of the Kmuhte of Labor, except
over the HI. Ixuin and San Franciwo
line, anil its trains ran penetrate the
rity only an far a the Grand Avenue
IVpot, for from thence to the Union
JViHit, a distance of about two miles,
they are obi itfed to use the Missouri
l'acitic tracks, if any, and this the
strikers will not allow. Outside
nierrliiintunir now beginning to under
stand the seriousness of the situation,
and at points all along the tiould sys
tem giiipiiirriia nave entirely eiosoa or,
in very urgent cases, the orders are
filled by express. All through freight
irom the West and South in also
diverted from the city, for it is impos
sible to transfer any of it from this to
the east side of the river, or vice versa.
The effect of all this upon the business
interests lias already become apparent,
and many prominent business men
express the opinion that the diverting
of trade from this city on account of
the strike is not only temporary, but
will ne permanent, me grocers com
iiHiii inai nicy are unaoie to nil one
half of their orders, and fear that if
the striko continues much longer their
eustomei-H will seek other markets, and
wuen once turned away from St.
Louis the majority of them will
stay away on account of their unwil
lingness to transfer their patronage so
often. Thcso same statements are
made by nearly all whoktsal odealers,
ami their estimates of the disastrous
ellects of this strike varies in Dronoi-'
tion as their customers are situated on
the Gould or ot her roads entering this
city, riuisenger tnillic has not been
interfered with, except the suburban
travel, which lias been almost entirely
suspended. All through passenger
trains are made up by the otlicials of
the dillerent roads end those of the
Jlndgo and Tunnel Company. The
Knights of Labor have oll'ered to fur-
jiisii men 10 uo mis worK, but their
oilers have been refused on account of
the unwillingness of the companies to
trust their property in. the hands of
green men.
Perfect ord r and quiet reigns at all
the yards and depots owned bv the
roads whose employes have struck.
All passenger trains left from their ae-
customed positions at the Union I).
pot this morning and most of them
on time. At the Iron Mountain vardH.
to force is on duty except that sulti-
cient to mane up the passenger trains.
All the engines there have lieen placed
in me. rouim-noiM except one which
is used for switching purposes. No
disturbance of any kihtf has occurred
at that place. At the Missouri Pari He
yards tho same quietness nrevails
Small groups of strikers assembled ear
ly this morning and these, together
with those guarding the property of
the company and the few yard masters
now employed as switchmen, are the
only ones to be seen there. Both sides
seem to bo waiting for the other to
show its hand and the situation is one
of expectancy, neither having made a
proposition to the other as yet and
in fact, have made no statements what
ever, except to give their versions of
now the present troubles irose, which
are diametrically opposite and flatly
contradictory one to the other. No
conference between the strikers and
their employers as far as known, has
as yet been proposed, and tho future
policy of neither side is knowu.
xuo situation remains about nn
changed in Kast St. Louis this morn
ing. I he Knights of Labor there
have not struck as vet. but lurw num
hers of that organization from this city
are there attempting, it is supposed, to
persuaou uiera to join ino movement.
The effect of the strike in East St.
Jxmis upon the cattle trade is esne
eially severe. No stock cars can crass
the bridge, and therefore the receipts
are materially lessened as tho strike
of the Missouri l'acitic railway this
morning issued an order expelling

to the strikers ordering them off the

action in withdrawing from the em
ployment of the Missouri Pacific Rail

donment of the service of the com

such who are mow about the com

but seem as confident and determined
as their striking employes.

Galvkktov, Trt., March 10. A sjio
cial from Marshall, Tex., to the Aim
says: Quiet prevails anions; the strikers
here. Kxtra police are detailed about
the yards. A report is current here
that all trains, freight and passenger,
are to bo stopped after to-day. The
Knights of Labor declare that if the
passenger trains are stopped it is no
fault of theirs. The Knights have sent
out circulars asking that lalsiring men
are not to go to any point on the Texas
I'acilic railway in search of employ
ment until the strike shall have been
ended. They have also k-ued a cir
cular to the laboring men of all classes
asking them to fall into line, stating
that the .Missouri Purine leased and
operated lines and the Texas Pacific
are now employing convict and Chi
nese labor to the detriment of honor
able labor, asserting that the said rail
ways are constantly violating their
contract of March 15, 18M, and declar
ing that thev are resolved to come to
the rescue of their down-trodden breth
ren. The Knights call upon all em
ployes connected with the railroads
mentioned to lenl their aid in driving
convict and Chinese labor from the

CmcAoo, In.., March 10. The
wholesale merchants here state that
the Southwestern railway strike lias
not had, as yet, any perceptible eflect
upon tho shipment of goods from this
city. 1 he wholesale grocery houses
state that the territory allected is
almost entirely included in that cov
ered by St. Louis firms, but the Chi
cago dry goods and boot and bIioc
bouses have a large trade in the af
fected district. As the latter ship
ments are not what are termed as
"perishable property," all orders have
been filled and forwarded by the Chi
cago roads thus far to St. Louis and
Kansas Citv and no refusal to accent
f'figlit have yet been made bv the
Chicago roads.
miners still working, but likely to
strike at any moment fur the advance.
The Cumberland, Irwin, Clearfield
and Huntingdon miners are nearly all
idle. As the Clearfield dicgors have
divided in favor of arbitration it is
thought the strike will lie settled in
that way.

PirrsBi mi, Pa., March 10. The in
dications are that there will be no
strike among the street-car company's
employes. The men, who are thor
oughly organized, are now engaged in
formulating their demands uiHin the
different companies, which will em
brace twelve hours jmt day and 12 for
wages. It is generally 'understood
that the directors will yield to these
demands but cannot do anything until
formally notilied.

CoM' Mill's, O., March 10. The prom
inence the labor problem has attained
by the strikes now in progress at
Springfield and numerous other points
in the country is evinced in the pro
ceedings of the Ohio legislature, the
whole ot tuesday being taken mi in
the discussion of bills in the interest
of toilers. Iloth bills had been intro
duced by the Hon. John McPride,
president of the Ohio Miners' Union.
The first provided against the pay
ment of wages of workmen in scno
orders payable otherwise, than iu
money, and requiring tho prosecuting
attorney to enforce the sane. After
long debate it was defeated, but after
ward reconsidered and nostnoned
until next Tuesday. The second pro
vided that it shall be unlawful for any
person firm, company or corpora
tion doing business in this State to
extort from any person seeking cm-
filoyment any contract or contracts
or labor, containing any pledge, stip
ulation or agreement other than stipu
lations and agreements in reference to
kind of work to bo performed, the
price and times of payment therefor,
tin; place and manner of performing
said labor and the term of employ
ment. Any jierson, firm, company
or corporation who shall require any
person seeking employment to enter
into any contract containing any
agreement or stipulation not herein
authorized shall be guilty of misde-
nicHiior, una upon conviction snail DO
fined not less than $100 nor more than
100, and be imprisoned not less than
twenty nor more than sixty days in
It is understood that the bill had
especial reference to the action of the
Champion Machine Company at
Springfield which, it is alleged.' is re

ance to tno Knights of J-abor. The
consideration of the measure brought
on a bitter debate, resulting in its
postponement until March lNih.

Although the officials will make no
statement concerning the aflair, it is
; generally believed that Uiey are now
employing new men to take the places
of the strikers, and that the movement
of freight trams will be attempted to
night, (should tlus prove true the
Knighte of labor will undoubtedly
oner resistance.
It 's now authoritatively stated that
the Missouri Pacific liuilroad Company
will attempt to-morrow instead of to
night, as stated in a previous dispatch,
to resume freight trallic upon its road.
The order issued this morning by Sup
.erintendent Kerrigan applies not only
-to the men formerly in its employ in
this city, but to all the strikers oh the
.system, and they have all i-long .the
line of .tho road witbdrawu quiotly
from the company's premises.

curred this morning when the new
mea employed by the railroad to run
the engines were attacked while per
forming their duty and forced to va
cate their cab. The strikers then
"killed" the engines. Quiet now pre
vails, but it is thought there that (kit
is the beginning of serious trouble.
Dispatches received in this city this
afternoon from point on the Missouri
and Kansas are to the effect that the
striking Knightsof Labor are observing
periect quiet, and no disturbances
have occurred. They remain firm in
their determination to force the rail
road company to accept their de
mands, but as the strike proceeds do
not express mich great confidence that

Chicago, III., March 10. Mr. M
Farland of M. I). Wells A Co., boot
anu shoe manufacturers, wiia asked
what action his house would ta- e in
view of the raising of the boycott
against the three firms mentioned in
these dispatches last evening. He said
he was greatly surprised at the turn
matters had taken. He was not Pre
pared to express an opinion on the
matter, or to say what bis house would
do. No one had approached him on
the subject, and he had, threfore, no
uppuriuniiy to agree or uisagree Wllu
the Kingliis.
Mr. C M. Henderson of Henderson
& Co. said: "We would willingly
have gone in with the others in this
thing, but nothing wits said to us
about it. We were not invited to the
conference. I do not know the reason.
We always had a prejudice against
convict labor, and diet not beirin to
employ it until about three years ago.
One of our convict lalwr contracts
expires in a year and a half, and we
have ne intention of renewing it. We
cannot throw up our contracts at once
without tho consent of the Pennsyl
vania and Missouri State authorities,
with whom they are made. If we can
cancel them before they expire we are
willing to do so.",
Oeorge Kodgers, chairman of the
Knights of Labor Executive Com

said that a circular to all the assemblies
in the country would bo is.ed, niisiug

way to ii li do w lint had been done. To
that circular wo dd be added a post

PiTMmiRO, Pa., March 10. A con
ventioB of the Miners' and Laborer'
Amalgamated Association of ihe fourth
district is now in session at Dubois,
Pa., considering a proposal to demand
an advance in wages of 12J cents per
ton, and to adopt measures to intro-duc-j
the eight hour ier day system.
The delegates generally favor nuking
the demand, and assert that if it is re
fused they wilf'strike. They w ill iisa
every means in their power, however,
before resorting to this method, and
have addressed a circular to tho oper
ators, inviting them to meet the Ex
ecutive Committee of the miners at
Dubois on the 18th instant, to arrange
nutters satisfactorily to all parties.
About 4000 miners are employed in
the fourth district. A telegram from
the Meyeradalo district reports tlie
