V. Fowderly, the leader cf the

that the strike, on account of the
discharge of Ha'l. was cause

two years ago Mr. Gould was as inno

It every trouble with his employ as he

it not surprising that everybody
shoald endeaver to shirk the respond

been precipitated, as alleged by Fow
derly, by unwise counsels, the leaders
deserve the severest condemnation,
and U forced by the harsh evictions of
a hearties corporation which has no
symiathy with labor, the public will
eeecrat such niggardly parsimony.
Toe loss occasioned by the
strike Is incalculable. Thousands
of men have voluntarily thrown
tbemselvM out of employment
and forced thousands of others into
idleness against their will. Women
sd children fire suffering for bread.
And the loss is not confined to the idle
workingmen. It extends through all
branches of business. The interrup
tion oi freight traffic causes millions
of dollars in 'properly to stand still

this property is perishable, and the
value of some of it will be destroyed
by delay. The suspension of trade in
the regions penetrated by the rsilroads
will cauie as much loss to the innocent
as to the obnoxious railrculs. The
cos: will be greater to those engaged in
the strike than any coaipuncation
which will result by the most liberal
conceteiion of the railroads. But the
Knights of Ubor Uke the high posi

American constrictor, that particular
monster known as "the Western

the Kanras City Jmtrnal exposed its
ravage before the Congressional com

investigation. The "Union" has in
folded its diHgnating length around the
press there, and proceeded with its
work of constriction. The papers
there are at its mercy, and for five
years have groaned under its piti
less pressure. The newspapers were
compelled, by threats of being left de
void of the news telegraphed to their
contemporaries, to sign contracts tin

Union dispatches. The papers pro

various parts of West Tennessee and
all the lHMiiocrats, wiliiout an excep

will understand why West Tennessee
is so unanimous for Ioney. This

It is wrone that there should be any
