St. Louis Mo , March 26. "Ii there

Chairman Mania Irons, at East DL
Lonia, last nibt.
"Yea." answered Mr. lions, "the
etriko will probibly extend through

"Will it be oonfined to railroad em'
"No, eir; the move to-Wy ia but the
kprrmninv of the end. Not only the
railroad emplo)oi will be called out,
hut the omer will go out to ill the
Knighted Lihorof this countiy, re
gardless of their occupations."
Then it will be a general atrlke?
"Ye, sir: the order of the Knights
Labor baa got to be recocni.ed.

Aeaeral Master Workman Powder
Iv has leaned a secret circular to tbe
noble order of tbe Knights of Labor
of America, which haa lust been made
pnblio, i Mr. Powderly instructs the
secretary oi every assembly to call a
full meeting and reml before it the
sentiments which follows. The ad
dress opens with an order to the as
semblies to cease initiating new mem
ben nntil the relations of capital and
labor shall beeom let strained than
at the present time, and continues:
"To attempt to 'Win concessions or
rains with our present raw. nndiscl'
plined Membership would be like hurl
ing an unorganised mob against, a
we'.l drilled regular army. It is not
fair to tbe older assemblies to bring In
new members, pick np their quarrels
as soon as organised, and have thorn
to expeet ' pecuniary aid from those
who helped build the order np for a
noble purttoee.' '
After dwelling at some length upon
the inadviiwblllty of taking in new
members at present, the address con
tinues: "We must not fritter away our
strength and miss the opportunity of
present success in the struggle against
capitil by rushing headlong into use
less strikes. To thecardinal principles
of the order we moitadd another
patience. You have had patience for
years, and had not the Knights of
Labor 'appeared upon the scene you
would still be waiting. Your scales of
wages mini stand m they are for the
present. II you cannot raise them by
nay other process than a strike, you
must submit to injustice at the hands
oi the employer in imtieuce far a while
Inm-AF. RMm mftll voiirtiiiiA
Find out how much you are justly en
titled to, and tbe tribunal of arbitra
lion will settle tbe rest."
Mr. Powderly then cautions the as
euinbliea againtl receiving into their
ranks employers, and warns tbe
knights of Labor that the politician
ia planning night and day how ta
ra'vch the Knights of Labor for the
advantages of himself and party, and
adds that to use the name ot the order
in a political contest ia criminal, and
mr.H not occur again.
Keferring to the eight hour move
ment tbe circular rays: "Assemblies
of the Knights of Labor must not
strike for the eight hour system on
May 1st, nnder the impteesion that
they are obeying orders from head
quarters, for such an order was not
and will nit be given. Out
st the 60,000,000 of people in the
United States and Canada, our order
he, possibly, :00,OOD. Ctn we mould
tbe sentiment of the millions in favor
of the short hour plan before May 1st T
It is nonsense to fiink ot it."
After speaking ot the anilities
which ' the officers of aseembliee
should poesesi, and expecting the
Knights to elect horjeit men of even
tempsrament, Mr. Powderly con
tinuei: "While I write a die pitch is
handed me in which I read tiiese
words: 'They discharged our brother,
' and we struck, for you know our
motto is, 'An injury to one is the
concern of a 1." Yes, 'an injury to
one ia the concern of all.' But it u
net witt to injure all for Iht take of one
It would have, been or better to continue
el work and properly investigate the
uiAiter, bringing it before every known
tribunal, than to have struck,
r-peaking of the relitiooi between
the church and the Knights of Labor,
Mr. Powderly says: "I warn oar mem'
hers aeainst hatty, ill-considered ac-
lion. The church will net interfere
-with ns so long as we maintain the
lair. If the law is wrong it is our
duty to change it. I am ashamed to
meet with clergymen and others to
tell them that our order is composed
law-abiding, intelligent men, while
le n xt dispatch brings the news of
enn.e petty toycott or strike."
In conclusion, the Master Wori
rraa says: '! write this circular to lay
bt-inre the order the ex"t -ondition

A freight train, made up by the Mis-
soori PacilicoilicuM, was started out
of this city guarded by a etrong force
of seventy-five policeman. No excite

without any interference from tho

been received from raciHc, Mo , about

A committee of throe of tbe etriking

After dixcusaing at some length the
situation the men finally decided to
heed tbe advice of their chairman
and proceeded to the Wabash yards
and resumed work.
Specials to tbe Put-DiMateh from va
rious point in Kansas and Missouri
are to the effect that the Missouri Pa
cilia officials have succeeded in start'
ins out freight tiains in several in
stances withont interference from the
strikers. Acts of violence, however,
are reported from Atchison, Kas.,
where strikers boarded the train sent
out from that city, and despite the
presence of tbe United States marshal
and several of his deputies, succeeded
in killing the engine. At Little Rock
no trouble bas yet occurred, but
r ot is anticipated when the attempt
shall be made to run a freight train
this afternoon, the strikers having
made threa'A that they will interfere
with any such proseedlng, the otliuials
asserting that the attempt.will be made

made at Kansas City to move Miseouti

Asked of l is opinion of the future
of the Knighta of Labor, Mr. Aithur
said: "I will give you my views.
Strikes mean taxation, lor the
men whe are out of work must
be paid, or they desert the ordir.
Taxat on means an excessive bori'on
upon the ordtr. which mud he severe
ly felt, and prove ai unbearable leal.
It his been the history of every order
which went into strikes wildly, whose
sole purpose seemed to be to strike,
that they have gone to pieces aft?r a
lew years. Take the most powerful
unions which have for a time domi
nated affairs in New York and Pnn
svlvaniu. Where hava they gone?
You never bear of them now. They
bave all gine down because of rtrikes.
It seems to me that the Knights of
Labor will go the sime way."
Mr. Arthur is decidedly nproied to

Amonv tbe hills introduced was one
by Senator Hoar providing for in
quests under national authority. Re
ferred to the Judiciary Committee.
Tne Edmunda resolutions were then
p'aoed before the Senate and Senator
Infia'ls took the floor.
Henator Iogalls spoke at great length
in support of the resolution?, and at
tbe conclmiin of his remarks was ap
plauded by lbs Republicans.
Senator Logan tbn addressed the
Senate in support of tbe resolutions.
Henator Logan declared himself in
favor cf open seesionp, and in con
cluding said be respected the Presi
dent as a pleasant gentleman, dui tnai
gentleman waa mistaken in the idea
that he was anything more than an
American oitizen, pieced in his office
to execute the will of tbe people. A
Sdnator had said that in pissing these
resolutions tbe .Sinu'e could accom

papers. Well, that might be as things
were, but wo could at leatt bring to

tor Lr gin's speech was lutsned to
with marked attention, and excited
much favorable comment.
Senator Edmunda followed in sup
port of the mjority. The policy of
the present administration, he said,
had been without precedent, and
would be without sn imitator.
Seaator Edmunds, in closing tbe de
bate, reviewed the whole question
carefully, and contended that the two
houees oi Con tress had a right to see
tbe papers affecting the business of tl e
government. If, laid Senator Ed

ence at this moment, the influence of
Executive patronage to be given tt

not be five votes in this chamber

There is the "grip" and the "ox." I

Senator Logan said that be would

fact that it waa thought that it would

Senator Hoar raided the point that
the amendment was not in order, in
asmuch as it changed tbe rules of tbe
Senate, and no notice had been given
nf it.
