A freight train of fifteen cara was
made od this morning at the anion
deoot and started over the Missouri
fad Do tracks in the direction of Be
enteenth street. Arriving at that
noint the crowd called npon tha en
gineer and fireman to leave thtlr
posts, which they did. The mob here
eoja became so dense that it was
deemed advisablo to clear the yards
and the police were summoned. Boan
a lores of about 150. commanded by
tha chief of police and the captains,
arrived at the scene. Tub crowd was
then ordered to disperse, and npon
their refusing to do si, the police made
a charge npon them, hoping to drive
them away without using their clubs,
The latter alternative, however, came
neoeasarv to resort to, the mob still
resisting. During the struggle which
ensued several ot the strikers were
bally beaten by the police, some
of whom were in turn badly
braised from roi-ka thrown by the
mob. After a brief fight the crowd
wae ' disptued and driven from
the yards. Another engine was then
- procured which, after being coupled
to the abandoned freight train, drew It
from the scene of the riot under I
gnard ol about fifty police who accom
panied it as far as the city limits, no
interference having been met with.
How far beyond this point the train
will t able to proceed cannot be con
jectnred, for the strikers may a', any
time vender Its progress impossible,

Jest after the freight train had got
ten away, rariying a large portion of
the pohce loroe, the mob, numbering
aooct ii) men, made a tusn lor toe
shop of the Missouri Pacifia to take
poestifisten of them. The courage, how
evr, ol a majority of them failed, and
only' aboat forty proceeded beyond
hall way, and they soon abandoned
the idea and dispersed.

Atouihon, Kas., March 24. The
Missouri Pacific railroad officials mads
two ft tempts this morning to send out
lraK'li: trains over uiir toads, buti
failed to succeed. The first train suc
ceeded without encountering any in
teritcence in running to a point about'
one m.le frjmtlie union depot, where
' a number of strikers boarded it and
set tbe biules. The engine was killed
and .he train brought back t.) the city
by the switch engine. A second at
tea.pt was then made, this time under
the p-jteution of the City Marshal,
the Sheriff and a number of police
met. The train succeeded in getting
as lar as the city lio.ita, but a short
distance from there the strikers took
control of it and brought it back to
the VAtds- There was considerable
excitement here during the attempts
w move these trains, but no serious
dlnnrbaace. All the Missouri Pacific

when talked with thia morning, said:

that tbe workmen ol the ooutowesi

if tbey bad contributed to the aid of
tha one man first discharged. We
mast use judgment in theee matters."

mauf gir ol tbe kock iaiaau route to

men mere, so none oi our employes
ars involved in the present troubles.
We are not taking perishable freight
for Kansas City, bat are accepting all
other kinds as nsual. Ho far as we can
learn oar men are neifactly satisfied.
An order was issued by tbe Chicago
and Alton road this morning infract
ing its freight agents not to accept
freight cf any kind to Kansas City."
"Tbe Illinois Cential la not involved

see Low Chicago can possibly be

Kansas Cirv, Mo., March 24 At
this boar (11:30 o'clock a.m.) every
thing remains in statu quo here. No
freight ia moving and all Is quiet in

chartered, and which will start for Bt.

A meeting ol the superintendents is
now in sen lion. Nothing hai trans-
spired aa to its action. No freight
trains have been moved as vet. It la
reported that tha vVaoaah will attempt
to Rend out a train to-day.
The rairoad superintendents did
nothing at their morning session ex
cept to discuss the situation. They
meet again this af ernoon, when they
will probably confer with the strikers.
A nromincnt official ex Dressed the
opinion that the railroad would grant
the switchmen s demand far tbe Chi
cago foala of wages, if tbey would guar
antee it should end the etrike as far as
Kanpiu City is concerned. Otborwiso
the domnii would pro ably be re

They stopped work for tbe noon hour,
a? usual, a ad at 1 o'clock did not re

the General Managers agree to pay

This raises the blockade from the city,'

Morgaii'a Speech.
I!eo
WashiKotjn, Much 2 .
The Chair laid before the Senate a pe
tition from BOO citisns of the Pa
cific coast protettiog against the cruel
treatment of unoffending Chinese. It
was referred to the Commiltse on For
eign Relations.
ibe Logan bill, to increase the effi
ciency of the army, was placed before
the benate. and esnator ixgtn ex
plained that under tbe 25,010 reguU-
tion there were but 23,02(3 effective
men in the armv: and under the pur
posed Increase to 30,000 there would
probably, owing to casoaliies, etc., be
only about 27,000 effective men.
benator Teller opposed the increase
He would not discuss in detail the In
dian policy, bnt saw no reason in the
Indian question for an increase of the
army. We could lake a number of
Indian children from the hostile
tribee, place them in Indian schools
snd Iodian wars wonld cease. Tbe
children would constitute hostages for
the good conduct tf the parents.
nenator Piatt favored an mcrosse ot
the army. We should be in a posi
tion to enforce Iba Monroe doctrine,
if necexsary. C implications might
arse at any time w th Cnada, Mtx o
or Ubma, nnd we should be pre) area
to meet emergencies. Besides, there
was domestic danger, rjanator Pia'.t
laid, which justified the maintenance
of troops. The danger did not a ruse
from the boocMt, industrious, sober
citizen of this country, did not arise
from any bodies of laborers associated
together for their orvn benefit to Letter
their condition. There was no danger
to be apprehended from them. But
there were people who came here
from abroad with no good intentiona
to our form of government men who
raised the red fl g of tbe commune,
who aaseited that their object was
revolution and their dseire blood.
Tbe moment that flag was raised here
tbe Communists would be joined by
the crimina's. (Senators should look
the situation squarely in tbe face. As
to the militia, Senator Piatt said it was
undoubtedly the atrength of tbe re
public, but it would be principally of
service aa an adjunct of a well organ
'lid, even though small stinding
army, which, in our position, was a
neneesity.
The hour of 2 o'clock arriving the
army bill went over, and the rnlu
tions repoit-d from the Judiciary
Committee were placed before the
Bena'e.
(Senator Morgan addressed the Sen
ate in opposition to the majority re
port. Referring to the determination
of the majority not to confirm nomi
nations when papers about the sus
peunions ars not furnishrd, Senator
Morgan said the Henate might as well,
in a fit of passion, declare at an end
all intercourse with the President.
The attitude of the Ssna'e could not
be just iti ad. The Senate had no power
to prevent tbe President from perform
ing hiB constitutional duty. It could
reject his nominations if it thought
fit, but could do no more.
Senator Morgan discussed at some
lergth tbe question of the constitu
tional limitations of the President's
powers to show that they did not af
fect his power of lemova', and that
his discretion in that rerpect was ab
solute. That it was purely an execu
tive function, Benator Morgan aaid.
was shown by the plain fact that it
implied the exercise of force when
tbut was necessary to dispossess an ob
jectionable officeholder. It was not
to be supposed that the constitution
gives Congress that power of impeach
ment by a two-third vote if that power
esuldbe amertea by a mere majority
o! one bouse, as was substantially at
tempted in this instance. If tbe Re
publican position was now correct, the
people, in order to effect a change of
administration, would not only have
to elect a lrendent but wait till
change could be e fleeted in the po
litical mtiorttv of the Henate.
Senator Mitchell I Ure. concurred la
the report ol the majority ol tbe com
mittee in so far as it aeaerted that it
was the duty ot the executive officers
to furnish, when called upon by the
Henate, papers relating it the adminis
tration of an office by a suspended of-
Uctal. lie would not be disposed to
insist, however, that the presence of
such papers in the Senate was abso-
lutelv necessary to the discbarge by
tbe Senate of its constitutional duty
in advising and consenting to proposed
removals from ollice. Wi'.hthat qua.
ideation he concurred in the report of
tbe minority.
At thin point considerable cross-tire
occurred in debate between Senators
Hoar, Gray, Edmunds, Butler and
Harris, and without action on the ret
olulion the (Senate adjourned.
The Hon.e.
Mr. BUnchard I La., from the Corn
mittee on Civil frervir Reform, re
ported a resolution calling on the va
rione Cabinet officers for information
aa to whether or not employes in their
departments are permitted to employ
substitutes to perform their 'duties.
whether such substitutes are employed
or appointed, and, if so, by whom and
whether tbey have passed the civil
service examination. Adopted.
Mr. Anderson K.as.1 asked unani
mous consent that an order should be
made allowing tbe Committee on Labor
to report for action at any time, not to
interfere with the revenue or appro
priation bills, legislation (or the pur
pose of providing for arbitration in

Mr. O'Neil INo.l thought that f
order ahould properly come from the
Committee on Labor.
. Mr. Randall Penn. snggtwted that
the subject waa the same, whether it
came from a committee or Irom an in

out its importance by stating that the

jection and tbe order waa made.

The lloj?e imuiedia'ely went into
commi'tee of t ie whole (Mr. lla-ii-ipnnd
Ga in fie chair) on the poat
cilioe Ki'prupria'ion bill.
Mr. B oant i , chairmiu of the
Comm'ttee ou Port fficea and I'jtt

cf the hi 1. It upproptiates, be SkiJ,
114 32H 694 as rgtintt an estimate ol
"l,8sn.ltH, and an appropriation of
1 53, 700,990 for the current year.
The committee Ihsn rose, and Mr,
Bloun aeked that all genei al debate on
the bill be limited to six hoars. This
waa not considered a sufficient length
of time by the Republican aide, and
Mr. Burrows Mich. moved to amend
by making tbe time ten boon.
Tbe amendment was fi st, 79 to 91,
snd Mr. Blount's motion was rejected,
the committee returning its session.
Mr. Dockery Mo. said the appro
priation bill which bad been reported
ttia session showed that the assertions
made that the distribution cf tbeap
piopiiation bills would resuit in in
creased expenditures lad been without
founda'ion.
Mr. Burrows Mich called thea'
tentim of tbs committee to the fact
that the estima'e for the pay cf railway
postal clerks was too low. At the last
session Congress had appropriated
$81,0. 0 for the purpoce of rt-citablitb-ing
tbtir salaries, though it had net
been specifically i tiled in the bill.
The PoitaioBier-Geneial had refused
to execute tbe law because this pur
pose was not direcily specified. If
that officer had examined the esti
mates he could have there discovered
that the sum utimatedcsuld not bave
been reached in anv other way tbaa
by allowing $81,000 fcr tbe pay
of postal clerks at tbe rate
allowed by law. There waa another
instance wheia the law was perfectly
plain, yet fjr the purpose cf making
that law a nullity thei'octmasteruan-
al bad lound no difficulty in looking
beyond tbe law and outside of it f r a
naion on which he could bta his te
f ui al to execute it. This bill appropri
ated $375,000 for tha transportation of
foreign malls. The conditional esti
mate of tbe der artment bad been $:50,-
000, bnt the I'0:tmattir-Ueneral had
tttted that if it wai tbe will of Con-
giess to pay American veestli tbe sum
of sea and inland postage, it wonld be
necessary to increiHS the appropria
tion to $425,000. By reason of the fai i'
uro ot tbe i'oetmaster-utneral t) ex
ecute tbe law parsed by Congress at
its laft session, tbe department bad
ean thrown hack on the nil statute.
which provided that the Postmaster
General should, in bis diccretion, pay
to American veesels the sea and inland
poatnze. Ue would at the proper time
move to amend this bill so as to rnnke
the appropriation equal to the fall
amount of the sea and inland pcs'a?e,
nd regretted, under tbe roles of the
House, be could net do more.
After qucting Irom statu tics tOBhow
the small sums allowed to American
veesels for carrying the mails Mr. Bur-1
rows cited the law of last year, au
thorizing the Postmaster General to
enter into contracts with the vessels at
rate not exceeding 50 cents per nau
tical mile. It was known to all and
conceded by all that the law remained
a de&d letter. It was not executed and
the law of Congress in this regard was
entirely and wholly nullified. The
rottnaster General had never moved
a hand or taken a itsoin the direction
of its execution. The Postmatter
General had given as an excuse that
on only two lines was there any com
petition. What right had he to as
sume that the adveitisement for pro
posals would not Invite competit on?
In tbe next breath the Postmaster
General said that it waa impossible to
execute tbe law because there was
no competition be' ween 4:an Francisco
and China and New York and Cuba.
Having given these reasons the Post
master General supplemented his
argument with a tabulation showing
if the government paid steamship
lints the sea postage it was paying
them more than tbey received for
transporting wheat or pork. It
was tbe , business oi the . rost-
mater General when Ikmgress had
determined to let the servics to the
lowest bidder to make an effort to ex
ecute the law instead of sitting down
and declining to make the slightest
move toward its execution. But tbe
administration of the Postolfice De
partment was subject to jnst criticism,
not only in regard to there matters,
but in cither particulars cf no little
fiublio concern. It had not only nul
ihd the law touching the aJmiuis
tration of the post il sirvice, bcth do
mestic and f jrelpo, but with uncom
mon effrontjry had defied not only
the spirit, but the letter of the civil
service law. Reaching, as the Post
ctfke Department did, icto every
State, town and hamlet in tbe broad
land, there was bo department ot tne
public service where the administra
tion could have given more convincing
proof of its sincerity in the matter of
reform ' in - the public service. Yet
there had been no branch of the pub
lic service where this law bud been
mare w antonly and openly defied from
tbe besinmns until this hour.
Ur. Burrows rominued his speech,
in which the administration waa se
verely criticised, and at the conclusion
of hie remarks the House adjourned.
