yesterday morning far the purpose, it
is understood, of consulting with
leading Knights at that place.
by both the striking Missouri racific
railway employes and their employers

day by renewed activity of the com-
Sany, which will again make the at
imj:H renew its freight t-afric. Tbe
fleet of the injanction issued by the
Circuit Conrt Saturday, restraining
the strikers from trespass and intimi
dation, can already be seen fjr, the
suburban accommodation trains de
parted and arrived on time this morn
ing. The engineers in tbe employ of
the company have already expressed
their intention rf atanding at their
. pott when ao ordered and of remalc
ing there nntil they become convinced
that they do go oat at their peril.
Positive fnformition in regard to the
Uremens' intention hai until new been
wanting, bat yesterday morning,
Grand Master of tbe Brotherhood cf
Locomct've Fiiemen, arrived in this
city, and attended a meeting of the
firemen in the afternoon. This morn
ing be announced that he bad rd
vised them to report regularly tot
duty, to icnpond when called upon by
1 the railroad company and to go out
witn tbe engines unless they believe
they wil be ex pored to danger by so
doing. These facts, taken together
with Iho expectation that the injunc
tion will prove eflVctive, leads to the
Delist that! eigbt trailia will also be
rernlarly resumed to day unless tbe
strikers retort to violence, and this
they say they will cot do,
by the sirikers occurred this morning,
when a j a tr of five men approached
W. W. Ktautjn, a new switchman
hired by the Missouri Pacific Com
pany, who was tending a switch in
the company's yard, and asked him
wby be was occupying a place of one
of thes rikers. lie replied that be
was being paid the wages domanded
by the strikers, and that when the
"tnati whore position he was then fill
ing should return he would surrender
the place to bim. This served to snger
the men, and one of them struck Stan-
Ion on the tmple with a ra'r of braw
knacks, end anther burled a lock at
him. which also struck bim on the
bead and knocked him senseless. Tbe
aasalUnta then dispersed, but not be
fore one ot them, Pa to Horn, was ar
retted. Stanton, it is thought, is not
dangeroasly wounded.
Contrary ti general expectation, the
Mlscoarl Pacifii) lailway ofllcials have
not up to this hour (2:30 o'clock p.m.)
made any attempt to move freight
trains apon their road. Accommoda
tion trains, however, have bnen run
ning on taeir regular schedule t me,
aid have not bu-a interfered with in
tbe least.
It ia Oiwrted in railroad eindes that
n circular emanating from the Kiwt St.
Louis Assembly, knight of Ulmr,
was served this afternoon upon rvpre
wntativee of all roads centering in
Kant bit. Louis demanding an iiicreiifu
of wagee for all ehop and yardmen,
and elating that if the demand in not
complied with by 0 o'clock this even
ing the men will be ordered out.
lMn. - The report referred to above
proves to have been true. The circu
lar was aent as stated, but the time
given to the railroad companies to re
spond has been extended to Thurs
day next The demand is made l,
: switchmen only, no shopmen being

first time respecting the strike by the
Knighte of Libor on the Missouri Pa
's cific ant the remaining portion of the
Goold Son hwettun syetera, (a d to a
reporter ol the Asiociated l'rem: "I
fi'st ha n.d rf the etrike while at

was a co nn'ete surprise to me f ir two
i reatont: F.rt-t, we hud acceded to all
the demands which had been made
upon as by our emp'oym, and were
j supposed ' ba working in harmony
) -with them. Secood.thu pesentmrike
is made npoi en issue with which we
; have no hing to doand which wec-n-not
possibly arbitrate or control. The
4 present strike." co i t naed Mr. Gould.
"origint t-s to the discharge of an em
ploye eased Hall on the Texts and
l'aciflc. which rod is in the ands of
the Unite 1 8 res C iart. We have ro
wore right t atumt to control the
working i f tbat system than the work
logmen themselves, and coold be as
completely in-roatempttjdosoas any
other outsider."
Begirding anoher aepect rf the
strike, Mr. Uoul I eiid : "The pall o
may not be aware of it. battheMme
itus wssiaised when smemn were
discharged on the W'a rash ralwav t
s time when it ws in the e n rol f
i the United Stares C ur. Mr. Powder
f lv, chief f tbe Ex-cutive Ccmmi tee
of the Knights of Labor, called upon
metoe-' urhereinti.temerjt of these
men. Thesnbj t was then fullv dis
cussed, and I told Mr. Powdeily I had
no powtr ia the rxatter; not even an
advisory without a' nq iest from the
conrt At ihi-t interview I told Mr
I'owderly tiat if any grievances ex

bring th u in o ir attei tion, we would
enduavor to rgit thenrr. We rerog
nis'd the n-ceeeuy'if being on g'tod

oat notice and not in consequence of
any grievance cited against ns; an ' in
view of ray interview with Mr. row
derly. whrm I believed tj be a fair-
minded man. was a'l tbe more ear

As to the future. Mr. Gould said
"I am advised tbat grtat numbers of
the ttrikers are not in sympathy with
tbe movement, end will return to
work as roan as aesured protection by
tbe civil authorities. It is our inten
tion to rtHume operations as fait and

In conclusion, he declared that he did
not care to discuss tbe other features
cf the strike beyond tbestatemen
that the company conld not poeeibly
join bauds with the Knights o( Labor
againat the United fctates Supreme'
Uourt in tneir war on another system
which lis asserted tbe present strike
involved. Mr. Gould farther asserted
tbat tbe Knights of Laror bad evi
dently discovered alrtady through
public sentiment that they were xer-
cising their power in favor of an issue
ttrictly against law, and order, and
tnat it was moie of a war against tb
general public than the road. It was
closing manufactories along tbe lines
of tbe railrraJs. and was stop
ping tbe sbi tment of ccal and
other commoditiei to points where
tbe people were liable to sutler gret
deprivation. It was more a fight o
the public than the company, but the
latter, in protection ol its own lawful
rights, would exercise every lawful
energy to meet tbe demands of its
patrons in opening tbe road in all itj

Tbe committee is now wa'ting for the
return of Vice-President Potter, who
is aaily expected from tbe West.
What the men chiefly want !s a re
vision of the schedule of wages. Tbe
claim is not so much for an advance
of wages as for the better clatsiflcttion
ol them. Tbe men who make over
time want a more defliolte statement

of the committee do not expect that

Washidotow, March 13 As there
are quite a number of claims pending
in voogrns in wnicQ boutbern inter-
eats are involved, many of them com
ing from Tennessee, it may be well to
s'ate that the Committee on War
Claims have laid down a rule of pro
cedure which secures tbedisallowaace
of many of them, even befire re-ex
amination ia made. Tbe class to which
rt f arence is made are those in which
Congress is asked to pay for the occa
parion and damage ta propeity by
United States troops during tbe war.
in many instances, as is well-known,
cnurcn propeity was tiken for hojpl'
tai purposes sua otber army pur
poses. The committee, however,
broadly pa upon all claims for the
use and occupation of and damage to
real estate and declare :
"It appears to be the settled policy
of Congress not t allow this class of
claims, and this committee feels dis
posed to follow tbat policy in the con
aideiation of cacei. Numerous caws
have been considered, and many more
are still pending, involving this same
prineiple, and every principle of ius-
ticeand equity demands that they
should be treat sd al.ke."
From this declaration of oolicv lo
be pursued itcn be lean that such
claimants in the State as have hoped
for liberal and equitable treatment
from Congress are doomed to disap
pointment. Tbe fact ia that the spec
ter of Southern claims, no matter how
Just, ttill continues to frighten tbe
statesmen who control the national
legislation, and little can be expected
from them so long as rolitics over
powers rrghtj.

line as are necessary f ir the railway

that such bridges shall not in trie re

In the Committee on Commerce
there is a measure awaiting considers'
tion that was proposed by Mr. Zich
Taylor "to modify and re-enact an ait

There are in the Committee on War

pared by Mr. Taylor: To pay the

and to pay Mrs. F. A. Lea, of Madison

of deeertion be removed from Thomas

Siah Friedman wants $75,000 for

A more liberal sentiment prevails
in the Senate than ia the House in
the waiter of Southern climi. This
is readily apparent from the action of
the Senate Committee on Claims on a
lennessee matter of a'moit identical
import with that roledinthe first
paragraph ubove. Tue Senate com
mittee has drawn up a favorable re
port on the hill to p. v the c'a:ms of

"Under the act ot 1807," Ihn com
mittee say, ",he departments have de
clined t) pay any claims originating in
the insurrect onary States from the be
ginning of tbe insurrect on to tbe date

claring the insurrection at an end.
And thus all peraois whose just
claims are based upon an express con
tract between themselves and the
proper officers of the lovernment,
made within tbe limits of the insur
rectionary States, are forced to appeal
to Congress for relief."
