THE IBIUEB1 AID JtTMrL. The strike; in ant) about St. LouU . ha grown In aeriooBneea since yester-. day. Jajr Gould's impolitic and bous " ' bastic card, with the threats of civil and criminal suits againrt members of the Knights of Utbor, has been met with a card f om the strikers, who characterise his "silly emanations" as "mi' insult to the intelligence of our school boys and challenge to the courage of our grandmothers." This is word for word. His declaration of a determination to make no com promise but to fight it out has been met in a moat terrible way by a strike by the switchmen of East St. Louis, embracing the ferrymen, which ef fectually blocks all traffic except by tin- MiftBifippi river. This, too, is an answer to the insolently partial reso lutions of the Bt. Louis Merchants' Kxchange, which sided with the rail road monopolists and had no word for the workingmen either of advice or counsel. But this, had as it is, is not the womt. There is reason to fear that the strike may extend eastward with still more disastrous, if not actually destructive, effects to traffic and trade. Thus "bad begins and worse remains behind." The workingmen have made every overture possible to them for compromise and arbitration, but Mr. Gould, in tho pride, plenitude and pomp, of his millions, and backed by the eagerly-given opinions of his rail road lawyers hired to construe his will and wiah in every law, refuses, and declares war, hoping, no doubt, that the exasperated men may be driven to acts sub versive of law and that may put them in the power of the courts. But past experience, that of Wednes day especially, ought to warn the workingmen that destruction of prop- erty i not the means they should em ploy if they desire the help of a favor ing public sentiment, such as has generally suutained them in their en counters with power. Strong in their intrenched position, as stated in the dispatch from Fort Worth, Tex.,whicb we publish on tho second page, an act of violence would be an act of folly. Self-restraint must characterize them if they would win. In silent selt'-containedncHS they munt' await the issue. The result cannot long be delayed. Their power, man aged with discretion, will insure them the continued respect of the people everywhere, and increase the sympa tic)' their conduct has aroused. They must bear in mind that if they make a misstep now they will not oidy en danger their present position and the prospect of a triumphant vindication, but may postpone or delay the coming of the day now hastening apace when lalxir will be elevated to a plane with capital and its claims be considered not from the basis of degradation which it has so long occupied, but as a quantity without which -human . movement ' and growth were' impossible. The present contest should have this as its greatest outcome. The immediate gain of money or time, or both, is a boon worth contending for, but tho ultimate of the elevation of labor must not be lost sight of. As Mr. An drew Carnegie says in a paper which we publish on our sixth page, we must make a rapid advance from strikes and lockouts, just as civ ilized nations are getting farthor and farther away from war. They are, as he says, " mere exhibitions of strength and endurance " that are ex cusable because they are the only present means to the end desired. But they must be put away as bar barous and tending to help as low wages and long hours do, to the brutal izing of the race. Strikes must be left far behind, and the more civilized and civilizing plan of arbitration, and ulti mately a sliding scale of wages or co opera ion be adopted as the only ra tional and reasonable way of guaran teeing capital and labor in anything near to continuous and profitable em ployment. This ought to be kept steadily in view by the managers of the strike in St. Louis and in Texas and Arkansas. They must be itrong now to be strong hereafter. Every gain made of time or of wages is an ad mission of the justice of the working man's cause, and every strike like the present when conducted with dignity and in peace an argument for the necessity for arbitration that has weight, especially with freighters and other? whose interests are most immediately affected. Interstate com merce and trade cannot stand any more strains like that which has al most paralysed St Louis, and threat ens the whole country. The money loss already sustained . would more than meet, for many years to come, any demand for lessened hours of la bor or increase of wages. As a mat- ter of economy, therefore, this strike h's its lesson, and it is one that is not likely soon to be forgotten. It proves that strikes are agencies of loss and must give way to arbitration, which will conserve labor and capital and the public peace, and prevent the disarrangement of commerce and trai1 that is now menacing the whole etnifUry north of the Ohio river. Where labor ami capital are con cerned, as in everything else in life, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." MR. UHIIG'S CONDITIO WRITE FEABS ENTERTAINED FOR . THE SECRETARY.

V- j-.x-ocimior i. it. uruce and ex- longressman John K. Lynch of Mis sissinpi calbd on the President yester day in reference to the massacre of inirteen negroes at Carrollton, Miss., on the 17th instant, stating that they had received numbers of letters from colored people in that section who are almost paralyzed with fear bv the out rage. A number of them had fled tn tne woods, tnd it was to-day unknown now many were Killed and had died ot the wounds. The attention of the President was directed to the fact that tne uovernorof Mississippi had taken official action in the premises. The President expressed himself in decided terms against such affairs as a hlio-ht to civilization and expressed himself as surprised that the State authorities had taken no steps to have the out rage investigated and the guilty parties brought to justice. TUB EDUCATION BILL. About fifty members of Congress held an indignation meeting in the House Rivers and Harbors Committee room yesterday to protest nioiinst tho action of thetommittee on Kducation in pocketing the educational bill. They passed resolutions expressive of their feelings, and instructed Mr. Willis to introduco a new bill and nsk to have it referred to another commit tee, lliey directed, also, that two members from each . delegation be selected to work, up a sentiment far me Dili. year ended the 10th day f January last. The exhibit thus made of tho operations of the commission account thus presented of the results follow ing the execution of the civil service law cannot fail to demonstrate its usefulness and strengthen the conviction inai mis scliemo lor a reform in the methods of administer ing the government is no longer an experiment. Wherever this reform has gained a foothohl it hassteadilV advanced in the esteem of those charged with public administrative duties, while the people who desire good government have constantly been confirmed in their high estimates of ita valus and etliciencv. With the benefit it has already secured to the public service plainly apparent, and with its promise of increased useful ness easily appreciated, this cause is commended to the liberal care and jealous protection of Congress. GROVKR CLEVELAND. The report says applicants huve been examined within the vear from every State of the Union and every Territory, except Utah. The whole number of persons examined during the year has been 7602, of whom 8S7 were males and ".SO were females. The whole number thus far examined since the act was passed has been 17, 491. Of those examined a trifle less than two-thirds succeeded. The I whole number of appointments made during the past year from those exam ined has been 1876. each for the nm- bationary period of six months. If to these we add 2200, the number made during the previous eighteen months under the rules, it shows that 4176 have been appointed in two years. Every one of the examinations has been open to all alike, without regard to political or religious opinions. About 2OC0 Republicans and alout 2000 Democrats have secured places In the public service under the civil service act. The report states many particu lars of the evils that were to be re moved, and how far thev have been remedied under the new svstem, based upon free and open competition of merit. Political assessments hnvn oeen in a considerable measure Bit ihvhimsu, anu solicitation and pressure for appointments have been great ly umuea. fliemoers ot Congress u"ve oeen relieved ironi much annoyance. Those administer'ng the government have had their time much less taxed by office-Bookers than for merly, and have conseoiientlv Imd much more time for doing the public work. The ability to dictate appoint ments and enforce assessments, which has been the strength and the profit of partisan manipulators and dema gogues, has, the report says, been diminished in the same degree that faithful study in the schools and good character and reputation in private life have been encouraged and re warded.

The ex pectation, which grew into a serious apprehension alvout h.m to-day, that the switchmen in tin- y:irdsot till the railroads centering ib 1 :1t St. oiiis would go out this afternoon, crystal lized into a solid fact til:: o'clock p.m., when all the ciijrim in ihe yards set uptBhrill mid prolong d whistling, and all the men nulled nut Ik-tniim 11 o'clock a.m. ami I pjn. aenmmittec ; of District Assembly Knights of j ioor, went iiirotin nil the y an Is and served an order Wall Knights to quit work at 3 o'clock p.m. This oruer was coupled wiUi a request ad dressed to tV-ntchmca w ho were not Miignta ot labor, aikng them to joirf their fellow-workmen, and also go out. How well this order teas obeyed and the request complied frith, was shown when, on the soundiiK of the whistles at 8 o clock p.m., all tins yardmen in the place quietly walked out and left the yards deserted. , NO )( tKTION w wis was involved In the nmement, and it is freely stated, but not on the au thority of any Knight of Labor offi cial, that tbe order nt to the men was simply an extension and enlarge ment of the strike on tho Qua Id sys tem and the initiative of a general strike on all roads east of the Missis sippi river.

Casey oung was atrain examined bv the Telephone Investigating Committee to day. Speaking of the resolution rovidmg for the appointment of J. rns Rogers as House electrician. Mr. Young said it was probable that he had suggested to Dr. Rogers that the resolution should be referred to -his (Young's) committee, Public Buildings and Grounds. Mr. Ranney inquired if the Pan Electric officiate had not abstained fr m taking an active part in the In terior Department proceedings be cause they did not want it to go up to the Department of Justice as a pro ceeding in which the Attorney-General was interested. The witness replied that of course that was an object. Mr. Ranney asked why the Attorney General had not been informed of the agreement letween the two compa nies, but had been allowed to proceed under the assumption that lie was not interested in the matter. The witness replied that if ho was under trial for committing a fraud on the Attorney-General, he was pre pared to answer it; he did not see that there was any impropriety in the Pan-Electric or any other comimnv asking the Attorney-Geceral to bring BIllli.

T.vnr nv me condition oi ainurs preci itnted by the strike which has causci uie 8tisiension oi ireignt iralllc over the St. Louis, Iron Mountain am! Southern railroad throughout Arkan sas. lie says the people have waite patiently two weeks for an amicable settlement. They have un interest in the regular r-iniiing of trains, am commerce and good onler and the peace of the country should not jeopardized lv a longer suspen ion oi business on the great public highways by a common carrier whose duty it is to regularly operate trains for the convenience and welfnr of the country. Therefore, the rail' way is requ red to proceed at once to regularly run trams over the road un der tno penalty of liemir nroceede against at law for further failure to do so. In order that the corporation may freely and without hindrance discharge its duty to the public, all persons are not i lied to refrain from any interference with trains, tracks, motive power ami appliances und penany oi law, and Nientls in coun ties penetrated by the railway are charged specially with the execution ot tliese commands, and all good citi zens are expected to preserve onler ami retrain irora acts calculated to lead to breaches of the peace, and from all tresspassers on or interference with the railway or the operations tnereoi. bridges have been burned, spikes have been withdrawn and trains derailed to tho great detriment of commerce and travel, and the placing of life in great peril. It is said that this condition of affairs has been brought about by the organisation known us the Knights of I-abor, and tlmt persons engageil in these lawless deeds are members of that order. Whether this is truo or not it is hardly creditable tbat this order, or the licst elemeuta in it, can countenance the violations of law mentioned. Emidoves have the un questionable moral mil legal right to quit the service of their employers w henever their employment is not remunerative and satisfactory, provid ed such action does not violate their contract ; but when they quit and sever their relations, ' it is the duty of those quitting to get out of the way and allow any others who may wish to take the service abandoned free to do so. In timidation or interference is a gross violation of the right of freemen, and cannot be tolerated in a free gov ernment. Now, therefore, I, John Ireland, Governor of Texas, do hereby issue this, my proclamation. warning all persons, whosoever they may be, engaged in any of the said unlawful acts that they ant entailing on themselves disaster and ruin, and that offended and outraged justice mnv sooner or later overtake and punish them unless they promptly cease their lawlessness. I do not undertake to say who these lawless persons are, or who is right in the controversy, but violations of the law and disregard for the rights of the peopleeaniiothe j lint: lied or exercised. I aplieal to the law-abiding people throughout the State to aid the civil ollicers in restoring onler and in executing the laws, ami in liscountenancinir in verv wav this abnormal condition. I appeal to all civil ollicers, judges,' shenlls, consta bles und city ollicials to make use of all tbe means given them by the law to restore order, with tho assurance that every power of the State, if law fully invoked, will be uaed to enforce the laws.
