Mr. N. VV. Ferguson, n contractor on
tho Ohio extension of tho Norfolk and
Wostorn railroad, was in Roanoko yes?
terday and was interviewed by a reporter
for TllK Timks.
"Tho stories about tho ill-treatniont
of tho Hungarian laborers aro without
foundation," said he. "and if tho publi?
cation of them is continued the contrac?
tors in this section will bo seriously

The Hungarians that have raised tho
row aro in tho camps on the contracts
in Logan, W. Va., about sixty-eight
miles from l'ocahontas. There aro
about five of them and they were car?
ried thoro from New York last Novem?
ber. They wero not whipped or driven
on the route from l'ocahontas and have
beon treated well. They claimed that
they must have light bread and cooks
, wero brought along to bako it to suit
"My camp is adjoining that of Pur
cell's, where the cruelties aro alleged to
have boon perpetrated, and to my own
knowledge tho Hungarians ha\o been
treated well. Nearly all of them owed
from ?12 to SIS for transportation, and
of course it is necessary under such cir?
cumstances to keep the laborers until
tho transportation is paid for. and to
keep them ii is necessary to treat them
well. They have been allowed to board
themselves or board at the commissary
with the foremon, elerks and walking
bosses at SI 1 per month.
"Ileis, the Bohemian who came down
to investigate the matter for a Hohem
ian paper in New York, has gone out to
tho camps, and if the natives got after
him ho may need the revolvers with
which he is said tobe armed.
"This is o pretty wild country," con?
tinued Mr. Ferguson. "Wo are in the
midst of the section well known as tho
scene of tho Hat?cld-McCoy vendetta,
and none except those who have spent
somo time in this region can fully
realize the situation. A few days be?
fore Hud McCoy was killed be went to a
camp and offered to sell some corn and
"The foreman wanted tho corn but
not tho cow, but was finally prevailed
upon to tako both. McCoy appeared tho
next day with tho cow, but saying that
ho had sold tho corn for a better price.
The foreman said tho corn was what bo
wanted, declining to tako the cow. Mc?
Coy leveled his riflo and said: Take tho
cow or tho contents of this gun. lie de?
cided to tako the cow.
"1 have been to the houses of tho
llatfield's and they always treat mo
kindly, If they suspect that a fellow is
a detective ho has to get. They live
very rudely, cultivating small patches
of corn and living in rough huts. Their
money is earned by floating timber
down tho river.
"Boats came up the river loaded with
whiskey, and with a transportation
license. Hundreds of gallons aro dis?
posed of among the railroad laborers in
the camps in tins way, and all efforts
to prevent it have proved failures.''
Referring to the work on tho road,
Mr. Ferguson said that it was moving
on smoothly and that all the contracts
for grading will be cleared up by tho
fall. "Elkhorn is tho present terminus
of the track and it is HKl miles from
there to Ironton, tho objective point.
1 suppose tracklaying will bo pushed
forward as rapidly as possible.
"Tho road strikes a corner of Kentucky
and runs tho entire distance through
this State under the ground, but it is
only a Short distance. 'The competition
of tho road will do much for this sec?

of immigrants that will make good
citizens. Already the reckless charact?
ers that have achieved notoriety for
this region, aro falling back on tho
streams and among the mountains."

Sir Charles Gavan Duffy ha? written
a letter to the Frooman's Journal, in
which he says that the policy of inde?
pendent opposition, which Parnell had
so far carriod successfully, originated in
1S47 with tbo Irish confederation.
Then, ho says, with the exception of
two bishops the whole Irish Catholic
Episcopate resisted the policy with all
their power and banished all priests to
penal parishes for supporting the Inde?
pendent party. Eventually, he adds,
the Independents became reduced by
intrigue and corruption, from fifty to
five members the bishops condoning or
approving every act of treachery.
In conclusion, Duffy declare*- that
"Until all this olerioal interference is
changed, there is no more hope for the
Irish cause than there is for a corpse on
the dissecting table." The National
l'ress. (lit! now MoCarthyitO paper, to?
