As Chairman of the Railroaders' Commit
toe' lie Declares It Told .of Trntb, nnd
Says the Railroad Officials Forced the
Issno Chicago Printers Labor.
Pottsville, Pa., Jan. 28. Chairman
Issued his reply to President
Corbin, pf which tho
following is a copy:
"Mr. Corbin'8 state
ment of tbs railroad
trouble, and what he,
colls facts, i3 known
to bo an untrue state
ment, to mislead tho
public as he attomptcd
to do in tho minors'
case, but failed. Mr.
Corbin says tho em
ployes of his company
charge of tho switch
engines refused to transfer tho elevator com
pany's goods consigned to them, and for re
fusing were discharged.
"Now, wo ask Mr. Corbin: Was he not
aware that the general superintendent, Mr.
Sweigard, hod entered into an agreement
that none of tho employes of the company
should bo discharged without a fair and im
partial hearing! I will refer Mr, Corbin to
Article 13 of tho agreement signed by Mr.
Bwoigord. Whn tho committee waited upon
Mr. Sweigard ho refused to comply with tho
articles of agreement, and ho further rofusod
to hold any conference with the committoo.
Tho police and PInkerton men were sent to
Port Richmond, and were on tho company's
property, intimidating tho employes, before
any strike had taken place. This fact alone,
Mr. Corbin, justifies the people in saying that
this striko was premeditated by tho officials
of the Reading Railroad company. Boar in
mind, Mr. Corbin, your subordinates dis
charged tho men at Elizabothport without
acknowledging the agreement between tho
company and its employe.
"We now would like to call tho attention
of Mr. Corbin to the fact that the company,
or its representative, Mr. Sweigard, has
made'objectlons to labor organizations, and
stated that they would wipe out tho Knights
of Labor. 'Finally, on Saturday, the 24th
day of Docember, the general manager is
sued an order that the names of such em
ployes as did not report for duty on tho
morning of Tuesday, tho 27th day of Decem
ber, would bo stricken off tho rolls, and their
places filled by now men. That was done.'
"Right here, Mr. Corbin, we place our
tide of the case before the peoplo, and say
that was not done. When our committee
visited Mr. Swoigard on Monday, Decembor
tho 20th, tho committoo agreed with Mr.
Bweigard to make an unconditional sur
render to him for tho discharge of tho five
trows, together with Bernard Sharkey and
Ambrose Hede, and then agreed to obey the
order issued by General Manager McLood,
that tho men who did not report for duty
would be discharged.
"Now, right here, Mr. Corbin, wo would
like to ask you did tho company carry out
tho orders issued by tho general managor
when the subordinates under tho general
manager discharged all tho prominent meu
along tho entire lino of the road who com
plied with order of Saturday, December U4,
nnd did go into effect Tuesday, Decembor 271
Who is at fault in this difficulty tho men
who obeyed the ordor of the general man
ager or the officials who disrespected Mr.
McLeod and his ordor of Saturday, Decem
bor 24?
"Mr. Corbin says: 'No man shall be ostra
cized on tho rood because ho belongs to a
labor organisation. All that is expected
from our employes is to render faithful ser
vice and obey the management.'
"If Mr. Corbin means what be says, and
will act accordingly, there is no good reason
why be will not hear our side of tho case,
and when he gets the men's side of this cose,
he cannot say they refused to obey the ordor
t the general manager, and If his offloera
have lost their heads and caused the strike,
why not shoulder the responsibility where it
belongs, and start your mines and railroads,
and do not let tfee public suffer any loss and
Inconvenience on account of the action of a
few stubborn officials over whom you have
absolute control The trouble was caused by
them, and it is the opinion of the genoral
public that it is your duty to end the
trouble. John L. Lks,
"Chairman of Executlvo Committee."
Chicago Flintors Alarmed.
CniCAGO, Jan. 28, Tho Chicago printers
are alarmed over tho prospect of a big re
duction in v. ages. An officer of the Typo
graphical union says he has information that
tho job and book printing firms of this city
want to make Chicago a center for cheap
book publications and reprints, and for that
purpose intend to reduce tho scale to twenty
five cents per 1,000 cms. The union scale is
forty cents. If tho reduction is made the
union scalo will have to bo suspended, or tho
men must strike. After late striko the
union is now in no condition to go on 1t striko
again.
How the Striking Miners Stand.
Pottsvillk, Pa., Jan. 28. There booms to
be an impression that the striking miners
have cut loose from tho railroad" -s. Tho
following will explain how they stand: Sub
District No. 12, National District lfj5, Knights
of Labor, represents that part of the organ
ized miners who are Knights of Labor, and
Is entirely distinct from the Amalgamated
Association.
The sulwlistrict minors andtho railroadors
belong to a common brotherhood, the
Knights of Labor, and it is mainly through
their exertions that the contest between tho
railroadors and miners is made a joint one.
The sub-district miners and tho railroad
Knight of Labor assemblies have officially
declared tho causo a common ono. Tho
Amalgamated, wo bellevo, have not officially
so declared, but havo ulways docidod, act in
matters pertaining to the miners' strike con-
J junctivoly with their co-minors' organiza-
1 tlon, thus being tacitly held, though not ofll
dally, to the endorsement of tho common
contest for supremacy of labor and capital.
1 It is tho Knights of Labor miners which
havo passed the htringent order, that no coal
should 'bo ml nod for scab railroaders to
biuidle. And, as stated abovo the Amalga-
mated miners,' while not officially endorsing
this action, yet have all along tacitly agreed
1 to support it by renewing their allegiance at
each recurring meeting to tho Knighta of
Labor miners' organization, and continuing
the existence of tho joint committee, which
is composed of representatives of both these
miners' organizations, and which is the joint
official executive body or committee of the
two, that sees to the carrying out of all order-
emanating from either, or both, the
miners' union.
It should bo borne in mind hereafter,
' the status of the several organizations when
itissaidthoy are united. Tho Knights of
Labor members, at mines and on railroads,
are solidly so; tho Amalgamated are inferen
tially so. There are very few Knights of
Labor working anywhere in tho region,
either railroael or mine employes; the ma
jority of union men now working for indi
viduals at the adranco aro Amalgamated
members, who, at overy meeting of that
body, argrte the qmesMon of being permitted
to work wherever offered the advance, but
the leaders and active members have thus
far been able to held them pretty solid
against this contemplated general break in
the ranks, although there are isolated cases at
Herbine, William Penn and othor points
where Amalgamated men continue at work.
The Amalgamated association held an im
portant meeting kero on Wednesday and
Sub-division 13 was in session both Wednes
day and Thursday
Milwaukee Brewers.
Milwaukee. Wis.. Jan. 28. Tho walk-out
1 of brewery employe which was expected to
tako pls.ee this morning resulted in less than
sixty men leaving their work. At Jung &
Bcchsrte' brewery, where oighty men aro
employed, but seven agreed to forsake the
union and romaU ae work. The remaining
sevMoty-tbree were paid off and went their
way.'looking rather blue. At Folk's brewery,
which also employes about eighty men,
elevea decided to east their net with the
union. At Best's brewery a few men, Charles
Best, secretary of the company, said not
more than fifteen remained away from work.
At the Obermana, Ckttlemann, Miller and
the Cream City Brewing companies' estab
lishments all the men ore at work. AtSahtiU
Brewing company fourteen men left, and at
Blatz's fifteen quit work
Collieries Slowly Resuming Work.
RrADiNO, Pa., Jan. 28. Information from

ies there will be in oporation by next Tues
day. The Reading company has five collier
ies in oporation to-day. The report that the
miners struck at William Penn last evening
is denied. Tho breaker was compelled to

derstood that Joneway & Company, ono of
the largest wall paper manufacturing firms
in tho country, have notified tholr employes
that they will bo obliged to reduce wages 40
per cent, for the present owing to dull trade.
If the employes striko they will have to close

WASHINGTON NEWS.
Mr. Thoeba Still looking After His Inter
estsA Monster Tetltion.
Washington, Jan. 2S. Mr. George H.
Thoebo Is still horo looking after his interests
and will not likely return home for several
woeku. It is understood that a formidable
effort is now being made by every industrial
organization throughout the country to ob
tain signatures from tho labor classes pro
testing against the action of congress in de
nying an investigation in the Thoobe-Carllsle
contest.
It is believod that in a few weeks probably
the largest petition to congress on any sub
ject will be forwarded. It is claimed by
those who are thoroughly posted that it will
cover no less than. 1,000,000 signatures. It
takes in the Knights of Labor, George party,
ttrados unions and other co-ordinate organ
izationa. This doeumeat will not ask for a
reopening of toe ease, but is simply in tho
shape of a solemn protest by workingmen
against the action of what they bel ieve to be
a monopolistle eeospirosy against the iater
esta of labor.

BALFOUR'S UNEASINESS.
MR. O'BRIEN'S RECEPTION AT MAL
LOW TENDS TO INCREASE IT.
jf-jl Bz-r gSrafgnbB
The Irish Editor Is Presented With a
Medallion of Bullet His Spirit Still
Unbroken Donegal Tenants Arming
Themselves Steamer Founders.
London, Jan. 35. The reception accordod
Mr. O'Brien lost night, at Mallow, has made
Mr. Balfour's sal
low face to grow
more yellow still,
and has set the
chief secretary and
his able custlo as
sistants at work
tryirg to deriso
some plan by
which, even such
demonstrations as
the Mallow ban
quet may be sup
pressed. It is ox
oeedingly galling
Hon. william oBnmzn to Balfour to find
that after a season of imprisonment of tho
strictest nature, tho Irish patriot and editor,
nothing daunted, Is again ready to enter tho
lists against him.
Tho proud spirit is still unbroken and the
mind not swerved an inch from its original
purpose. It is very
galling, especially
because the Irish
secretary had se
lected Mr. O'Brien
as the one upon
whom close confine
ment and rigid
treatment would
tell the most and
would the soonest
break. It was not
surprising to hear
from Dublin this
morning that the
casuo was aiui-urixu j jaltoub.
or that new councils were being hold. One
significant feature of the banquet last night
was the presentation to Mr. O'Brien of a me
dallion composed of the bullets taken from
the bodies of the Mltchellstown martyrs.
This means that Irish patriots will never
forgot that sod occurrence, and that every
effort will bo made to perpotuate the mem
ory of thoso who were shot down in cold
blood by the government soldiers, and for
which act no redress was given, not even the
poor satisfaction of a reprimand to the men
who committed tho deed.
Mr. Balfour is fast discovering the spirit
of patriotism which burns brightly in the
heart of every true Irishman, and that hun
dreds of evictions and imprisonmenta oannot
subduo the people ho has so confidently un
dertaken to bring to his own terms.
Mr. O'Brien will not appear at many more
public receptions, but it is his Intention to
got away somowhero and rest until parlia
ment opens, so that ho can meet atid con
demn to his face tho man who has so success
fully gained the hatred of Ireland.

Berlin, Jan. 28. The minister of war an

A $10,000 NOTE.
Fair Prospects of n Long and Much Con
tested Suit Begun at Chicago.
Chicago, Jon. 38. Daniel O'Keofo, who
owns a nice house and lot in the suburban
town of Cummings, received information
about a, year ago of tho death of anothor
O'Keofo in India, and a romantic story camo
along with the norcs of his death that a for
tune of 11,000,000 had been left, which
awaited claimants. Tho Chicago colony of
O'Keefes was very much oHcited about tho
business, and Daniol confided to Richard
Bransford, n constable, tho good news.
Bransford promptly volunteered to go to
India and bring buck Daniel's slice at once,
if Daniel would give him a note for
$10,000 to secure Bransford for the ex
pensos of the trip. Daniel gave the note
and nothing was over heard of Bransford,
the Indian fortune or the (10,000 note until
yesterday, when tho note turned up safe and
sound In Judge Tuthlll's court in the posses
sion of Mrs. Martha C. King. She had
brought suit on it against 0' Kecfo, and tho
latter not being presont, a verdict of $10,000
was given on tho famous note against him
and hi favor of Mrs. King. t
An hour later a breathless and exoited
lawyor appeared in JudgoTutli ill's court and
moved to set tho finding onidu upon tho
ground that tho note was without considera
tion, and hence void, and was procured on
false representation. Tho motion was en
tered, and will be argued next week. After
Bransford got tho noto from tho credulous
O'Keofo it is asserted that he disposed of it
to Edwin B. King, a young attorney, and
upon his his death it camo into the hands of
his mother, Martha King.
