Cleveland, July 26.--Citizens of Cleve land, almong whom the street car strike is the chief topic of conversation, to day added their commeNtts to the ad dress Issued by the Right Rev. Ignatius F. Horstannrm, bishop of the diocese of Cleveland. The utterances of the Cath olic divine, a n,.n of great influence among the people of his denomination throughout Ohl.,. are regarded as viv Idly expressive of the sIturation here, and It is expetld his message, plead ing that law swill be observed and the civic digniy upheld, will result in the subduing of mtut of the violence which has made the past week an epoch In local history. The address follows: "To Our BelRed Chlldren of the Laity in the City of Cleveland-Gretr ing: As the times are so perilous in our beloved city of Cleveland we are forced to publicly commlunicate our sorrow over the frightful events of the last few days. No matiter what may have been the grie\van' s of the employes of the Cleveland Fletrlc Railway com pany; no matter what may have been your sympathy fir the strikers, after the outrages that have been committed: Litter the terrorizing of the inhabitants of Clevelndnd dan its suburbs; after the danger to life 'a,ltl property which has followed: after the vlolent resistance to the constltuted civil authority, it is our sacred duty to remind you all cf all of your solemn obligations to Al 'mighty God as Christians and to your city and country as citizens In this em ergency. It has atl ays been our proud est boast as Amerlcans that we have shown the world that we are capable of self govlermlnltitr: that nowhere on earth are la\ a:nd order so well re spected and obey,'d: thait here, at least, true Liberty reinrs, and that every guaratnty is givti n for the full pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. "But now. alas, \\hat do we witness? Anarchy reigns' tiot and rebellion pre vails! The c.lvil at!:horlties and military are openly ras;s.td' The citizens are terrorized by the nob, and the militia must be called iut to preserve order. The fair nane isf our city as a law abiding communilty is in danger. Busi ness has been paralyzed. Visitors fear to enter our portals: citizens are in con stant danger of their lives. "What then is your duty to God, your duty in consciien, to your churchl and your country? It a to uphold the civil authorky ito obey the laws; to give no countenance to nlob violence: to shtow no sytpasthy for those who are in .r bellion against law and order. Avoid all croa'ds. 1wt no idle curiosity lead you to mingle with those who are thus disturbing the public peace. Remember the words of the apostle: 'Let every soul be subject to) higher powers, for there is no p.wo r but from Gol: and those that are ,r'ila ned of (God. There fore he that re.-,etth the power, resist - eth the ordinamu e of GCod. And they ,that resisteth. purchase to themselves damnation. Tihtrefore be subject of necessity, not only for wrath, but for conscience sake' lRomans xli. "Pray therefre' brethren that peace may be restored nlld dwell permanently In our midst, and that brotherly charity may once more reign amongst all. Prayer is powerful, and if offered up for peace and un::ty, it must be pleasing to God. For the reverend clergy, we here by direct the coillect 'pro quacunque tri bulatione' to be recited in the rlasss pro re gravi until the present dangers have through G(od's mercy been avert ed. In the words of that collect. brethren, pray earne.o:ly: 'Almigh:y God. despise not thy people crying olt to thee in thelr affliction: 'but for the glory of thy name being appeased re lieve us in our necessities. Look down mercifully, we beseech thee, O Lord. on our tribulations and turn away the wrath of thy indignation, wihich we Justly deserve. "'Through our Lord Jesus Christ, thy son who with thee and the Holy Ghost livest and reignest forever and ever. Amen.' "Brethren and dear children. in jus tice we exhort, we entreat, we admon slb. nay, we command you in the name our Divine Master to hearken to this instruction and as good children to cheerfully obey. May the peace of God, which surpasseth all understanding. keep your hearts and mind In Jesus Christ. Amen. "IG. F. HORSTMANN. "Bishop of Cleveland." VICTORY FOR STRIKERS Brooklyn Men Saerifted Themselves for the Benefit of Others. New York. July 25.-District Master Workman James Pines of district as sembly No. 75, Knights of Labor, leader in the Brooklyn street oar strike, issued the following statement to-day: "'tlhis strike was forced upon the men by the president of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit company. lit 1ill be continued for the reason that it has the sympathy of all the labor organizations, not only in New York, but in the entire coun try. The unions in Greater New York have shown their sympathy and sup port by their willingness to contribute to those who were compelled 'to sacrihice themselves for their fellow creatures. It matters not who the men are who will man the cars in Brooklyn here ftter, they must receive the benefit of the effort, and 'therefore will be much easier 'to organize than were those who have been driven out. "In their homes they will be shown the benefits they have received trom the sacrifice of those who have autil cdent courage to insist on their rights. "The injustice of the number of hours they are compelled to work each day is so thoroughly advertised that neith,'r the governor nor the mayor can longer sit idly by and not recognize the jus tice of the men's claim, and the man agers on these railroads must seel that if the modest request of the men had been granted, it would !have been a thousand ttlies less expensive than the thing they have forced on themselves. "As evidence of this I point to the Coney Island and Brooklyn railroad, which was run with-out interruption 'through two ritrikes. I mention this to show that laboring men are not unrea wonabie and only ask fair treatment, and when fair treatment is given, those giving it reap the reward. "I will do alfrtys -gwhatever is in my power to assist the men who have been courageous enough Ito sacrifice them selves for 'their fellow employes. and no one can make me believe but that the fellow employes who have received the benefits will forever remember those who made such sacrifices. "The newspapers can claim the strike to be a failure. but no argument that they or anyone can use will satisfy me that this strike has been anything but a victory for the men, as the future will prove. "In justice to Albert Johnson and the pubic. I want to say that Mr. Johnson was opposed to this strike. He rea soned with them and pointed out to them why they could not win. and he advised them to go to the mayor, and 'told them that if the mayor would act he could settle the matter in one hour without a strike. He also eaid to me that he had no motive other ,than a friendly feeling for the men who helped him to make his money, and I am con vinced that it is the truth." STRIKING GAINING HEADWAY. FI se Assorted Varieties Are On In New York. New York. July 25.-The clothing workers'. freight handlers', newsboys' and messenger boys' strikes gained headway to-night.

This poem Colonel In gersoll had read and altered in some of its parts only a few hours before he was stricken down." Maj. O. J.

'My Religion.' Dr. John Elliott of New York read the funeral soratlon delivered by C1ol onel Ingersoll over his brotther's dead body. This concluded t'he short and inr1 pio services. Nearly all present then t:ok a parting look at the dead andli I a.'ed out. After they had gone Mr. It suss arose from his chair, and. as he is to 'tally blind, passed his hand over the face of his departed friend and said: "Perhaps he Is better now. No one can understand it." Mrs. Ingersoll said to him: "The colonel wanted you to put y our hand upon his heart." and suiting the action to the word, she .fiected his hand to the left breast of the de ceased. Mr. Rouss asked what she was: go. ing to do with the remains. "I can't give him up." she .,:'d. "I can't put him in the ground. I car't bear to think of it. We're 5'-uing to bring him back 'home." The body will prohbably be taken: to Fresh Pond Thursday for cremation, but this arrangenment is subject to chdnge. During the morning there .\oas many visitors to look upon the face of the deceased.
