hopes (or a urttlenntnt of the strike
upon the Gould Southwest system, in
the near futu-e, erem nearer realize
tion thii morning than at any time
during the prmnt diilitultjr. The in
terest in the future developments is
equally divided betwwrn the conrae
which the dis harmed mPcfcanic, Hai,
at Marshill, lx , ehall pursuo, and
the reply of Col. Hoxie to Matir
Woikman Towderly, now at Kantai
City. Many f-l confident that the
mibraiss'o l nf II ill's grievances to the
United Kuteo Court will result in
ending the strike on the Tuns and
Pacific Kailnmd, whichever way the
indue of tbat court ihoald decide.
The announcement by the Missouri
Pacific employee, however, of griev
aorpa other than the difcharge of
Hall warrants the beliff "bat sepa
rate settlement of the dilHculty among
them must be arrived at before the
trike on that road can end Mr.
Uoxie's at h wkt, therefor, to Mr. Pow
deily' rfqnett for conference, is
waited with the greatett anxiety.
Dp to a very lato hour lait night Mr.
Hoxle had no', received the Master
Workman's telegiam, and in reply to
an inquiry at to lus p'ans, should ne
gotiations he opened between them,
replied that he could make bo state
ment in rnrd to his future Bourse.
that the men employed by the various
railroads in Kant W. Louis will strike
becomes less day by day. The men
are all at their posts this morning as
nsua', and, it Is a'a'ed, will remain
there until ordered to strike by Master
Workman Powderly. It Is quite well
nnderstiod tint the roads which have
not alrealy grant d the requested ad
vance in wiik will Co so when their
employes picmnt the i-chedula derireil
by Hum, providing their demands
thill not be excessive. Toe situation
in this city this morning shows abso
lutely no change. Buburtan pasn
gey traffic ta bsm resuind, and no
luither interference fromtlis Koights
of Labor to thii branch of the iail
joid's businers is auticipatdd. All
the suburban train loft and arrived
on time this morning. No at erupt
has been mide for somo days past to

company's pi ins are not generally
known, it is presumed that no attempt
to resume freight Irullic will bo made
until the strike is ended.

foreign to America, and tbat it can
only prove a detriment to ths entire
country; that we sincerely deplore

Eaufera Kailroads Alarmed,
Chicaoo, III., March 19 The state
ment is published here this morning
that the attitnde lately assumed by the
Knights of Labor has greatly alarmed
the railroads eat-t of the Missouri
river and they have arrived at the con-clui-ion
that it is only a question of
time when they will have to contend
asainst the same diflicolt'oi as are now
preventing the Missouri Pacific sys
tem from carrying on its buslnaai.
They find that at the present tbey are
not prepared to meet the combined
strength of the Knights of Labor or
resist their demands, and that in order
to protect themselves they would have
to effect a combination of the roads.
With this end in view, a meeting of
the superintendents of tbc various
roads within the torritory nf the
Central TmIIIc Association (al! roads
east cf the Mississippi river and west
ol the w-etern terminus if the trunk
lino) was held in Cincinnati lait Mon
day, and the pi eso nt situation regard
ing impending labor troubles was
fully diictssed. The opinion ws
iiiifininiouBly expressed that the
pris-nt situation is the moet critical
siuce railroads first came into existence
in this country, and that noit-d and
harmonious aition btteen the toad
could prevent serious results. An cr
ganlzatton was effected and stated
settings will be held reuularly in
order to bo able to meet any labor
troubles tbat might arise with the
Cential TrafUc Association tsrritory by
united action.

New York Putt: Tin tdlkers of the
loual branches of the Koights ol Labor
in New York say that they know
rothlng about the railroad strike In
the Ho ithwefct. If culled upon to aid
tin etnkcra thov will do everything
that in ordered JBO far, co'.hlng bai
been said about Eioturn co-operation.
The olllcers if fie New York Central

Knights of Labor, btlieve that they
will I ave rnongh to do in this neigh

who are preparing tor a geneiai en

Nsw York altar ths 1st of next May,
re a'so working hard to induci the
unions to strike together for shorter
hours. One ol the leadersin both thisa
movements said to-day:
"Any one wbo roei amorg the poor
workers of New Yo k, tsiwolally in
the (onement-hru e du t ilts, knows

It Is an ex etonce which ofTers no hopo

gauia id labor must come to the help
of these people too wi ak and ignorant
to help themstlvee. For iusta'ice, I
know tbat wom-n w io wo k sixteen

own rent and provide thiir own ma

ninm's can be made to work, and
live in bir.iblrt tin4merit; decent
living ii out of the quti' n. Now
he Central La'ior Union amis tbls
con d t ion of th, Otis, and no matte-
how little rich p.ople mavympathis4
with the unions, they will admit that

I believe tliit the unions oitutit to in

their t'tiemtnts, it in unt po-sible f tr
the unions to contrul or even to kiow
wht an employer pays Ids people;
but if all labor a done in large
shops we could say to the employer:
'You must pay thii woman H a week
or you must not employ ber at all
O'.herwine the whole power nf O'gan-

The same argutuuul may be used with

'ion of lenemeiit-him-a lhor keeps
wsites down: that is rni'hr icasoi
why we propose to put au end to the
system. The moment people are em
ployed In large shops we can attempt
three things for their benefit: tbat
their hours aball be reasonable; their
pay sufficient to support them in de
cency; their workshops fit for men
and women to work in.
"It is the lowstt grade of work
people, those who will work for the
least pay, that makes the rate for
whole trade. To illustrate, suproae
we have 50,000 shoo girls in New
York, waiting behind counters in re
tail shops; a certain number of these
girs are glad, thanks to circum
stances, to take lesi wages than others;
some may live at home, consequents
they work for three or four dollars a
week in competition to the girl who
has her board to pay. Ten thousand
of theee girls who live at home d alte
the standard of wagea for the 40,000
who do not, and much eufljring re
sults. Tho 40,000 cart live on thesi
wages, but what kind of a lifa is it?
Ws want to establish for the shop
girls a minimum rata of pay below
which an employer shall not have the
light to go. Ths car drivers have a
minimum rate of $2 a day for twelve
hours' walk. Hi far so good. All
trades ought to have a minimum late.
We are not holding the good workman
down to the level of his incompetent
fellow, because employers may pay any
wages tbey like above the minimum
' Yoa aik me where employers are
to find the extra money demanded?
By eharglng higher prices. We have
no quarrel with employeis; we know
erfdctly well that competition is
fierce among them and that the hu
mane employer goes to the wall. Tke
tendency in prices has always been
downward at ths expinss o' the work
man. It Is time for the tide to torn.
Well-to-do people can pay more f.ir
the clothes they wear and the meat
they fa', Tninua are sot equitably
distributed. When I a man in
Dclmonico's restaurant paying as anunh
for one meal as would suffice for a
Ludlow street tailor's family for a
month, I say to mvself, 'Thtt fallow
euiht t ) pay more f ir his coat, undo
partly by. the Ludlow rtreet tailor,
perhaps, and less lor liia breakfast.
The tailor would be a little richer and
Drlmonico would be a lit tits poorer
the distribution would ba more equita
ble. ' For the present, therefore, we want
to iton tenement-house manufacture
of all kinds, in order to get at the em
pi ijers of these poor wretches. And
Lou will notice tbat the Knigblfr of
,ahor refuse t allow any cigar-makers
wbo employ tanoment-hotue labor to
use the union label. That will break
np that branch of business. As every
thing In the future is to have a label,
other trades can be attended to in

Sidalia, Mo., March 19. The strik

Haline counties among a class of labor

The demand was at first refused, when
no less than fifty men quit work. The
employers have coaced-'d to their de
