New York, August 22. —There was an enormous crowd of brokers in the stock exchange at the opening, arrang ing for a renewal of loans. Renewals were nearly all made at fi per cent per annum, with "a premium of one-fourth percent, added, but as loans were made today to carry brokers over until Monday, the premium does not make the rate nearly as high as yesterday. Toward noon three-eighths per cent, premium and interest \ was paid, but the urgent demand was easily supplied. In the afternoon money was com paratively easy and a hopeful feeling prevailed. London houses were liberal buyers of stock. It was reported thstt secretary Windom was in the city, and would confer with the bankers, but up to li.m. no conference was held. The general belief however is that the last circularooff f the treasury assured easy money after September Ist, and that the danger line is passed. Mistaken Identity. San Francisco, August 22. — The Chronicle this morning says, as the re sult of its investigations, General Miles has released Albert H. Munn from the Alcatraz military prison, where he was confined until yesterday, charged with being Frank Williams, a deserter from the United States army. Munn was arrested in this city July 9th, and after trial by a court-martial, August 2d, was ordered to Acatraz. Tne contention is that the matter was a case of mistaken identity. Colored Culprits Hanged. Danville, Va., August 22. —George Early and Bayard Woods (colored) were hanged at Rocky Mount, Franklin county, today for arson committed in October last. The negroes fired a large tobacco warehouse because the owners refused to allow General Mahone to speak there. SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 23, 1890. TOILERS' TROUBLES. Two Weeks' Strike on The New York Central. No Prospect of a Settlement Yet in View. Vice-President Webb Obstinately Re fuses to Arbitrate. Depew Coming Home to Assume Control of The Company's Affairs—Strikes in Chicago. Associated Press Dispatches. I New York, August 22. —With the close of today ends the second week of the strike. The men -who two weeks ago left their places with the confidence of re-instatement upon their own terms, are considering the situation tonight in their local assemblies, where they were joined in council by the members of the executive board. Undoubtedly it is true that the rank and file of the men feel at present strong in the near pres ence of their leaders, The heads have been considering their immediate inter ests, and the men are pleased. They feel reinforced and more hopeful. The state board of arbitration once more presented itself perfunctorily to aid in a settlement. Powderly has has tened to acceede, but the railroad has declined. There is a growing belief among persons who are following the course of events closely, that there will be no further strike. It was rumored that possibly the next move would be the ordering out of all mechanics along the lines of the' Central. On this point AVebb was questioned. "Anticipating," he Baid, "some ten days ago that by allowing the men em ployed in our various shops to remain, I was furnishing ammunition to the knights, lat once ordered the shops to be, closed and directed that only enough men be retained to perform the actual necessary repairs that are re quired each day. At the present time we have fully six thousand cars in course of construction at West Albany and 1200 men have been laid off." Efforts at Arbitration. State Arbitration Commissioner Dono van this afternoon sent a letter to Vice- President Webb, stating: It having come to the knowlenge of the state board of medation and arbitration, that another strike was seriously threatened on the lines of the road of your company, I am instructed by the board to again communicate with you and invite a joint conference in the offices of your company between you and representa tives of your employees, with tlie view of devising some means, either by arbi tration or such other method as may be mutually agreed upon, whereby the threatened strike may be averted and the abrupt interruption of travel and transportation of freight be prevented." A similar letter was sent to Powderly. Powderly in his reply stated that the general executive board of Knights of Labor is willing to comply with the re quest,and holds itself in readiness to re spond at a moments notice. Powderly says: "We hold ourselves in readiness to do any honorable thing to terminate the strike or avert another one, and sin cerely hope that either arbitration or such other method as may be agreed upon, will have the desired effect." Webb Refuses to Arbitrate. Webb responded thus: "The further strike referred to by you will not take place, as the efforts of the persons who have' left our service may or may not meet with success. I believe that such efforts will fail. lam not aware of any difference or grievance existing between the company and its employes, and I must assume that the conference sug gested by you was designed to be between officers of the company and officials of the Knights of Labor. These officials represent not our employees, but per sons who have left our service and have not asled to be re-employed, but who, through th" same officials of the Knights of Labor, have asked that the discharge by the company of certain persons, be submitted to their investigation, and to arbitrate by some tribunal to be selected. 1 shall take every means in my power to prevent the interrup".ion of passenger and freight traffic, and if the constituted authorities will prevent lawless interference with our operatives, I do not anticipate any interruption. For the above reasons it seems to me in appropriate and unnecessary to have the conference suggested by you. Webb Issues a Manifesto. Webb comes forward tonight with a prepared statement, evidently prompted by Powderly's manifesto. Webb starts out with the statement that no man had been discharged by his company because he was a Knight of Labor or member of any other organization. Then for the first time since the beginning of the controversy, Webb names a list of offenses, among which are those because of which Knights of Labor are said to have been discharged. Webb continues : The company dis charge the men, irrespective of their membership in the order of the Knights of Labor, for drunkenness, incapacity, breach of duty, insubordination and for lack of sufficient work to employ them, and it will continue to do so whenever the proper occasion arises. It would be moral and criminal neglect of duty forme to omit to to discharge a man for drunkenness only whose sobriety and fidelity to duty de pends the safety of life and limb of mil lions of passengers transported annually by this company. What private or public business can be carried on sub ject to dictation from the workmen thatthere shall be performed only this or that amount of work? What em ployer can tolerate insolence and in subordiation, based upon the belief that the offenders will be supported therein by the secret organization to which he beltfngs, by any agency by which the employer's business can be damaged or stopped. The foregoing gives, without setting forth the name or place of employment the causes which called for the discharge of the men referred to in Mr. Powderly's appeal. For these discharges and to avert a threatened strike, I had been called upon by Mr. Powderly and his associates to consent to the monstrous absurdity of satisfying them by some kind of arbi tration or investigation by persons others than the constituted author ities of the company, that these causes existed—a demand which so long as I occupy the position with which I am intrusted, I feel it my duty to firmly decline, and to this Webb attaches his signature. Depew Coming Home. New York, August 23.—The Herald says this morning that it was given out at the Grand Central depot last night that President Depew had left Hamburg for home, and would take charge of New York Central affairs. SARGENT'S VIEWS. The Vaster Firemen Speaks About The Existing Difficulties. TivititE Hai ti;, Ind.f August 22.— F. P. Sargent, grand master of the brother hood of locomotive firemen arrived here this evening from New York. In an interview with an Associated Press rep resentative, Sargent said the first thing when the council gets together tomor row, would be the hearing of his own re port of what he learned on his visit to New York, in interviews with the exe cutive board of Knights of Labor, com ppsedof Powderly, Hayes, Wright, How ard and Devlin. Then in the course of tl)3 interview sargent struck out from the shoulder. He desired, however, to be quoted not as in the position of president of the council, but as a member of the Federation of Railway Employees. He said he was individually entirely in accord with Powderly. Powderly and his rep resentative had gone to Webb and asked the reason for the discharge of three men from the New York Central road. Webb had flatly refused to have anything to do with Powderly, and the latter had called in the federation. Continuing, Sargent said: "Asamem ber of the Federation, I do not think Powderly was treated right. When in New York, I was sent for by Webb. I should not have cailed on him other wise. I asked him why he did not treat with Powderly. He said he did not want any third party to interfere. I then said: 'Suppose you had discharged cer tain firemen and I came to you as grand master fireman to ask your reason for their discharge, would you refuse to talk to me?' To this he made an evasive reply, and I left." Sargent went on to say there was no disposition on the part of the employees to force matters, ill they wanted was a chance to present their grievances to the officials of the Vanderbilt system, and have a just arbitration of the exist ing difficulties. As to the final result of thesessiom if the supreme council.Sargent declared the public need have no appre hensions. Sargent hoped no extended strike would ensue, but his words were that he was ready to stand as the cham pion of organized labor, and he wanted the whole country to know it. ANOTHER BIG STRIKE. Engineers and Firemen at the Chicago Stock Yards Go Out. Chicago, August 2:2. —All of the fire men and engineers employed by the Union Stock Yards Switching Associa tion went on a strike for higher wages this morning. In consequence, 120 switchmen are idle. This switching or transfer system is the largest in the country. The association does all the work for the packing houses at the yards, consequently all work at the packing bouses is at a standstill. The tracks are filled with immense trains of fresh meat destined for outside points. CHICAGO CARPENTERS. Another General Strike Imminent — The Bosses Refuse to Arbitrate. Chicago, August 23. —At the execu tive commitee meeting of the master builders tonight, they refused to arbitrate the existing differences with the journey men carpenters, as asked for by the latter in an address to the builders Thursday. As the new bosses associa tion has also refused to arbitrate there is apparently no recourse for the Car penters union except to surrender or renew a general strike. Should the 0,000 members of the union quit it is figured that within two weeks 31,000 other workmen in the building trades of Chicago would be thrown out of work. Disappointed "Scabs." Bi'Fi ai,o, August 22.—Men to take the strikers places are constantly arriving. A number of firemen reached here this morning, but on learning that that they were expected to take the switchmen's places, refused to work and were dis missed without pay or transportation home. Some of the men swear there are 150 of them in town, brought here by the railroad company and left here without the means of sub sistence, or means of transportation to their homes in the west. No Hope of Arbitration. New York, August22.—Commissioner Donovan, of the state board of arbitra tion, reached here this morning and had a short interview with Webb. Although neither would tell anything in regard to the interview, Donovan said there was very little hope of a settle ment being arrived at by means of arbi tration. Ontario Grain Crops. Toronto, Ont., August 22.—The Onta rio agricultural department has issued a bulletin dealirrg with crops. The area of fall wheat is 102,000 acres less than last year, and barley 174,000 less.
