The Knights Propose the Following as a
Basis of Settlement:
St. Lovis, March 11 —Martin Irons,
chairman of the executive board of
District Assembly 101. Knights of Labor,
has prepared a statement of grievances
and demands of the striking employes of
the Gould Southwest system, and sent
It to Colonel Hoxie, first vice president
and general manager of the Missouri
I’acitio railroad. Irons denounces the
statements made in Colonel Hoxie's cir
cular, issued a few days ago, as wholly
false; considers it too insignificant to
reply to it in detail.,and expresses bis
surprise that railroad magnates who
have so long insulted the people by ap
plying to them the phrase “be damned, ’’
will fall upon their knees and cater to
them for sympathy.
The statement pr <• eds by setting
forth that it is th. f>< lie'of every Knight
upon the Gould bysu in that the roads
it embraces have inaugurated a sys
tematic method of breaking up
their organization, to check which
attempt the strike lias been commenced.
In order to bring about a speeay settle
ment of the difficulties now existing be
tween these roads and lueir former em
ployes. Irons makes a proposition that
a conference be arranged between the
management of the Gould Southwest
Co i panics and District Executive Board
Assembly 101 of the Knights of Labor,
and that they agree to the following pro
positions :
1. That all unskilled labor, including
section laborers, trrekmeo and orossir.g
watchmen be paid $1.50 per day.
2. The abolishment of convict labor.
3. That all bridgemeu be paid at th.
rates ef $2.00, 2.25, $2.50 and $2.75 per
day according to the nature of the work
performed by them.
4. I hat all house repair gangs be rated
ne bridgemen.
5. That nil boarding houses for bridge
gangs be entitled to half rules of freight
on all supplies for the use of bridge out
6. When outfit cars are moved at
night or on Sunday, bridgemen shall be
allowed one and one-halt time while so
7. That while bridge men are com
pelled to work in water at washouts,
etc., they shall be allowed double time
while so engaged.
8. That bridgemen be allowed one
and one-half time for extra service.
9. That bridgemen be allowed passes
to homes from places of employment
twice a month.
10. That better regulations of appren
tice service be inaugurated.
11. That when the services of any
employe are deemed unsatisfactory
by the Company, it shall be
made known to him in writing
that they may defend themselves
in the following manner: He, the ac
cused party, to select to
assist in conducting the defease, and the
officer of the company in immediate
charge of the department in which the
discharged man worked be allowed to
select two persons to assist in conduct
ing the prosecution; that accused be
tried before three disinterested parties,
to be selected in the following manner :
Parties assisting in the defense to select
one and parties assisting in the prosecu
tion one, and the two thus selected to
choose a third. The accused must be
allowed to remain at work until the
charges are either disproved or substan
12. That all men be paid the same
wages for the same work.
13. That all men unjustly discharged
be reinstated at the conclusion of this
strike. Respectfully submitted,

At Galveston,
Galveston, March IL—The situation
to-night presents no new features of im
portance. but indications all point to the
fact that the Mallory boycott is gradual
ly nearing an end. Three members of
the Executive Board of the Knights of
Labor, N. P. Hnux, of Austin, D. 11.
Black, of Fort Worth, and G. W. Smith,
of San Antonio, arrived in the city to
day. and have been in secret session
with local Knights during the the after
noon. Master Workman Farmer and
Master Workman Connelly, of Paris,
are expected to-morrow. The full board
will hold a very important session to
morrow afternoon, and probably finally
decide the Mallory boycott one way or
another. In the light of recent events
in North Texas and elsewhere. the
grievances of local Knights have under
gone an apparent change. Individual
grievances are lost eight ef. Your re
porter, in conversation with many
Knights, beard no individual grievances.
The matter has narrowed down to the
single issue, in their opinion, to-wit:
Will or will not the Mallory company
recognize and employ organized labor,
and as the great* strike on* the
Gould system is said to have been in
augurated by the discharge of one Knight
of Labor at Marshall, so the trouble of
the Mallory boycott could be adjusted
by the employment of a single Knight.
The issues in Texas, therefore, are as
broad as they are long. President Sealy,
of the Santa Fe, arrived here yesterday,
but up to 5 o'clock this evening the
Knights had not called on him In refer
ence to any probable trouble on bis road.
It is even doubtful whether tbe boycott
committee of the Knights of Labor pro
pose to wait on Mr. Sealy at all. To
morrow’s meeting of the Executive
Board is awaited with a great deal of
curiosity and anxiety.
The Engineer's Position.
St. Loris, Msrch 11.—No attempt up
to this hour, as far as can be ascertained,
has been made to start freight trains
from tbe Missouri Pacific yards. A con
ference was held this morning between
the freight engineers and General Super
intendent Kerrigan and Master Mechan
ic Bartlett, at which the engineers stated
that they would stand at their posts
when it was decided to run the trains;
that when tbe engines are prepared in a
proper manner for work they would run
the trains according toorders,but further
than this they will do nothing. The en
gineers are holding a meeting this after
noon, at which they will take formal ac
tion in regard to tbe strike.
Met the Cut.
San Francisco, March 11.—The South
ern Pacific yesterday, made a rate from
here to Kansas City of $l5 and Chicago
$lO, for limited and emigrant tickets.
The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fernet
the cut. Four car loads of oranges,
wines and raisins produced in the Los
Angelos valley, were forwarded to Chi
cago to-day, to be exhibited at the fair
A Few Particulars Concerning the Uni
versa! Building Association.
Mr. George Waugh, the president of
the Loan nod Building As
sociation was once more arrested last
evening. After he had been surrender
ed by Messrs. The mas B. Johnson and
D. J. Kearney, he procured two others
who. however, quickly relinquished
their responsibility and George Waugh
was placed in tbe county jail. Mr.
McPhail, one of the bondsmen, states
that this was due to the fact that he had
received a letter from bis sister in Brit
ish Columbia, giving an interesting ac
count ot the prisoner's crooked charac
ter In that portion of the globe.
From Mr. Garza, the banker, it was
ascertained that he became acquainted
with him some time ago through the
medium of Mr. Tom Harrison. Mr. 1
Garza was informed that he was very
wealthy, and had about $40,000 in
ver. Colorado. Waugh drew check for
$350 on a man named Earnest, in Col
orado. Mr. Garza, before cashing i ba
check. Inquired of Messrs. O'Connor A
Sullivan as to the solvency of the man.
They replied that they knew Earnest,
but did not know if Waugh bad
any authority to draw on him.
It was then sent to Colorado !
and raturned. Harrison came and told
him that he had got some collateral and
asked him to let him have tbe money.
Garza received some vendor's lien notes
and Harrison gave him a check on an
Austin bank for $300; it was sent up
there and collected soon after. Harri
son gave Garza a check for $l5O and lie
cashed it. When sent for collection to
Austin it was returned. Garza was told
by Harrison then that Waugh hud neg
lected to have thia money transferred to
him. While Harrison had gone to Aus
tin, Waugh called on Garza and told
him that there were some men working
for Harrison, and he wanted monev to
pay them, ns they had stopped working.
Garza naked him about the check of Har
rison’s that had been paid, and the ex
planation given. Waugh replied that it
was a mistake on his part, and he would
give Garza a check for the $l5O on the
bank over nt Austin, and he gave him
another for S4SU. which Garza paid him
and they were both sent back.
Mr. Waugh has also victimized Mr.
Jeremiah Brown on the same principle,
giving a fictitious check on Earnest, of
Colorado, for work done.
Mr. Thomas B Johnson, of the
Light has been swindled out of nearly
$2lO by this slick < anadinn. among other
items there being a board bill at the
Maverick to the tune of $5O.
Regarding Mr. George Waugh's con
nection with tbe association of w hich lie
was president, lie was elected to the
position on representations made by
himself and others that he would invest
largely in tbe stock of the association,
placing it immediately on a secure finan
cial foundation. His explanations were
of so plausible a nature that he readily
secured the co-operation of some of our
most prominent citizens. In tbe
charter the following names were
given as the Board of Directors:
Theodore Roziene, George Waugh. T.
Hines Clark, D. J. Kearney, Joseph W.
Maddox, T. B. Johnson, Alexander L.
Lucas, L. Garza, John H. Bolton, T. P.
McCall, Walter Scott, D. S. Burus and
William B. Hamilton, and the following
officers of tbe association were appoint
ed : George Waugh, President; Theo
dore Roziene, First Vice-President; Wal
ter Scott, Second Vice-President; D. J.
Kearney. Secretary; George T. Howard,
Treasurer; Tom Harrison. Attorney.
The organization of the association
was completed simultaneously with tbe
removal of the “Light” Publishing Com
pany to its present location, and
they rented the east side of tbe
front office, which they fitted up witli
elegant office furniture, the greater pat t
of which was purchased of J. W. Hm nig.
and still remains unpaid for. This re
mark can also be applied to the rent due
the Light Publishing Company.
Mr. Roziene stated to a Light reporter
this morning that bis name was used
totally without his consent, and that
was the reason he compelled
the association to accept his
resignation. He niso said that the orig
inal intention of tbe parties concerned
was to open a land office and to make a
complete abstract of Southwestern
Texas. The Company was to be incor
porated and for this purpose Mr.
Tom Harrison was sent to Aus
tin to procure tbe charter. This
be found he could not do nnd he changed
the original plan into tbe Universal
Loan and Building Association, drawing
on Mr. Garza for tbe amount required
to pay the fees and also Ids board bill
during his stay in the Capitol city.
Mr. George T. Howard, who was
treasurer, save that bis name
being used without authority, and be
never qualified for tbe position
nor handled any of the funds of the asso
ciation. Certain amounts have been
paid into the association, $196 of which
Waugh was allowed to gain possession
of fer some inexplicable purpose.
A general meeting of the members
will be held to-morrow evening when
the books and vouchers of the associa
tion will be strictly investigated and a
definite statement of tbe status of aflairs
ean then be ascertained.
Stopped by the Knights.
St. Lotfis, March IL—Without the
knowledge of the strikers, this miming
tbe Missouri Pacific Railway officials
succeeded in starting from this city over
the Iron Mountain track, a freight train
consisting of a caboose and 17 cars.
When it reached Carondelet, a short dis
tance from the city, it was going at ex
press train speed, but met with no oppo
sition until it reached Desoto, where it
whs boarded by Knights of Labor, who
site-tracked it and afterwards killed tbe
engine. Tbe Knights ef Labor say that
they will oppose, to their utmost ability,
any attempt to resume freight traffic by
the road.

"Blunt" Reviews the Municipal Battle
field, With Some Advice.
Editor Sun Antonio Light.
I take it. from an item in your paper,
that MayorCallsgban is not pleased with
my plea In Ids bebaif. I hope you are
mistaken, as it would lessen ray good
opinion ef the good sense of that worthy
young gentleman. When tbe surgeon
finds the bone crushed beyond redemp
tion, he takes ofl the limb. It would be
neither just or generous for the unfortu
nate cripple to look upon the surgeon as
his enemy. A just criticism may leave
the patient shorn of some of bis beauty,
but it should not be looked upon as an
unmixed evil. There is a rule w inch is
generally applicable in such cases, to
wit: The public officer or admin
istration that can't stand criticism
had better step down and out. The
man who occupies a high place of trust
must be able to look over the beads of
the toadies and flatterers who surround
him to the great crowd upon whose
shoulders he has been borne to his high
position, or else he is lost.
When .Mayor Callaghan cainc into of
fice his friends were hopeful that hit
career would lead to u higher place in
tbe esteem ot the people than occupied
tty bis predecessor, especially was this
the case with bls Republican support
ers. The yen ng Mayor promised relorui
in city aflairs and a progressive adminis
tration in the way of public improve
ments. How has he fulfilled this expec
tation? If we are to judge from the ex
pressed public opinion on every hand,
irrespective ef party, lie baa failed,
signally failed. Yet, Ins failure is
due largely to the City Council
who have shared with him the responsi
bility of tbe city government; bis great
trouble came from tils inability to ap
preciate the fact that our city is no
longer a Mexican village, that the
methods of ward politics would not be
popular with the great muss of intelli
gent. people, for the inaugura
tion of a progressive, independent ad
ministration of their atlHirs. Had the
young Mayor thrown aside all his preju
dices, and acted entirely with a view to
tbe public benefit instead ot trying to
strengthen his political position, be
would be the strongest mau of bis party
in the city to-day.
In fact, had our Mayor been a
stronger man with a ripe experience
and knowledge of aflairs lie might have
overturned bis watchful, crafty enemies
in tbe city council and driviug them
against tbe wall ot public opinion, be
came their masters, and forced upon
them a policy of his own. In tbe dis
tribution of the spoils the council were
content to take the crumbs th At fell from
tbe executive table, but in ail other
matters the ambitious counciltoen have
had their way and left his honor the
doubtful advantage of an undisturbed
use of patronage.
There is certainly a power in or
garized public pap. but it inust be in
accord with tbe sentiment of a large
body ot the people who do not feed at
the public crib, or it will bn swept
like toe chaff before the gale
Of the public wrath. Hence it is that
tbe solid, substantial voters have de
termined to the sewer propo
sition in order that tbe present adminis
tration shall not have the chance to use
that expenditure Io feed its hungry sup
porters, Tbe Mayor has hitherto op
posed sewers, but he must now fall into
line, as it lias developed into a conspir
acy to secure control of our city govern
ment at the next election.
If Mayor Callaghan will openly and
resolutely oppose the present sewer
proposition, such action would go far to
restore him to public favor. Bi.i nt.
The Trades Assembly
St. Lovis, March 11.—The Trades As
sembly of this city, which is composed
of regularly appointed delegates from
all trades unions, have held a meeting
and adopted resolutions recognizing tbe
railroad strike as a struggle for the right
yf workingmen to organize; that the po
sition taken by tbe railroad managers is
inimical to tbe rights of the working
men and the public good and should be
denounced, and expressing hearty sym
pathy with tbe strikers.
Preliminary steps were taken by the
business men of merchants and mechan

to devise means to bring about a settle

say that we have no diiliculties with
Texas and Pacific employes, and should
any arise, we are most willing now, as
in tbe past, to confer with them and
right any grievances shown by them to
exist. Tbe issue between former em
ployes, who are now strikers and not
now in our employ, and ourselves is that
they have committed depredations upon
tbe property in our possession, by dis
abling and killing engines and inter
fering. by intimidation and otherwise,
with meritorious and honest men now
in our service, desirous to perform tbe
duties abandoned by the strikers. This
matter we have remitted to the United
States Court, and the United States
Marshals, under writ of assistance from
the courts are settling the trouble for us,
so I do not see any good that arbitration
with a committee of the Knights of La

Mr. Moody and the Negroes.
Evangelist Moody bus more tbun tbe
average amount of common sense in his
■nuke-up. This is one of bis chief char
ucteristics, mid he has never shown it
more plainly than during bis present
series of meetings in tbe cities of the far
South. Tbe question at once arose when
he wus in New Orleans and Galveston
and Houston and other cities, ••What
shall we do with the negroes?” There
was no doubt they needed converting
quite as much as their white brethren ;
but what should be done about inviting
them to tbe meetings? Mr. Moody re
fused to do anything. He insisted
upon leaving the arrangements to tbe
local committees In the cities be visited,
and the result was that in some places a
certain part of the hall was reserved for
tbe eolored people, In others they bad
exclusive use ot the hall at certain hours,
and in others tbe Evangelist went to tbe
negro churches.
There was some complaint because
the meetings were not thrown open to
black and white alike, and because the
colored ministers were not Invited to sit
oa tbe platform with the white preachers.
Tbe Evangelist paid no attention to this.
He said be was iust as glad to preach
tbe gospel to a black man as to a white
man, hut be did not feel that it was any
part of bis mission to go to Southern
cities and try to settle the great race
question. He did not go as a reformer,
but to preach tbe gospel
“I never Interfere with the customs of
a place,’ said Mr. Moody. “This ques
tion of race bas been discussed north
and south for many years, and it is hot
possible for me to settle in two or three
days what bas been agitated and dis
cussed so many years without being
settled harmoniously.”—[Exchange.
