tell the committee every thin he knew,
but deemed it proper to say that the

of his interview with Mr. Powdmly
and the committee prior to the West

the KniRht declared that the Mis

voice exhibiting traces of str.irig agi

not run a train, and were deprived of
the power to earn their wage. That
was what followed the strike forcible

would hesitate to do with bis millions
of soldiers behind him."
Mr. Uoiio's statement ol tbe posi
tion assumed by the Missouri Paiifl",
in which it is stated that the strike
had grown out of the discharge f Hall
by the receiver of the Texas Pacific,
was read by lien. Swayne.
The chairman Inquired why Hall
bad been discharged; be would like
to know what the man had done.
In answer Mr. Gould requoeUd Gen.
Swayne to read Receiver Brown's
statement to the effect that liall bad
been guilty of abseoling himself from

The letters of Govs. Marmaduke and

was to continue for some years waa
used by the companies in selling lands
