The Strike on the w York

Grand Central Depot In New York unit
Trill lis Ilclllg Dispatched With reflect
KettulHrlty lollce Still on Duty.
New York, Aug. 19. Although the
strike on the Now York Central railroad
has not been declared chfny the Knights
of Labor it is virtually at an end. Tho
decision of the Brotherhood of Loeonio
tiue Engineers In refusing to come out
was its death knell.
About the Grand Central depot Tues
day morning everything was quiet and
trains were being dispatched with per
fect regularity. The police were about,
as strong as ever, but there was appar
ently no necessity for them to be there.
Mr. Webb was early at his office and
expressed himself as thoroughly satisfied
with the situation. He had just received
a dispatch from Dewitt which said that
all was quiet there and there were uo
strikers in sight. Westbound trains
were being moved over the Auburn
branch. Livestock was being loaded in
cars und pushed, forward.
At H o'clock nothing had been heard
as to what had been done at the Sixty
seventh street and Thirty-third street
yards. None of the leading lights of
the knights could be found.
The olice arrangements for the
strike differed in no way from those
which have existed since Friday night,
when the trouble began.
The only depredations reported during
Monday night were along the Tenth
avenue" freight tracks, where, in a mini
ler of instances, coupling phis were
pulled from the cms with the effect of
breaking up the trains. The neighbor
hood abounds with young toughs, wiio,
as likely us not, were the real mischief
Tho Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers and Firemen are laughing in
their sleeves at the terrible de
feat of the knights. The knights them
selves are very much disgruntled. '
At A lbiiiiy.
Albanv, Aug. 13, Despite tho asser
tion of the Central railroad that Tues
day morning they would move freight
and have twenty engines at work raising
the blockade, not an ounce of blockaded
freight had been moved up to noon, and
no utteinpt was made to n.'.ve a.iy.

An Interesting Talk With Mr. K.ruslin
New York, Aug. 13. Mr. Erastus
Wima'.i ha?, much to say concerning the
! report that he would try to become a
Canadian member of parliament at the
coming parliamentary elections. Four
Lilieral constituencies, he Kiid, had of
fe:ed him their nominations, but his
busines 1 interests jii; will as his prefer
ence to live in or ne-.r New York had
prevented him from accepting any of
Unrestricted reciprocity," he said, "is
the only way in which the interaad mat
transportation question can be settle J.
The crime of the Canadian roads is that
th ( carry f reighf ch -aply. So long as
this H their only i-i:i. the interests of the
fanners in tho west nre equally opposed
with the consumers of t'ii east to a sus
pension of these t'he;ip facilities by tho
aboli'iou of the bonding privileges.
"What is needed is the enactment in
Canada of regulations siuiil.ir to those
of the intei state commerce bill. These
regulations will iiever be enforced by
the existing Tory government, as they
hold their power largely throagh rail
road influence. But the Liberal gov
ernment, which can be elected after the
fourth coining parliamentary.. election,
will have different views.
"If the Canadian1 roads have a shorter
route, if they have been built by gov
ernment aid, and Can carry more cheap
ly than American roads, then why
should not American manufacturers in
the east and American producers in the
west have the' lienetit of cheap
ened transportation' If the result
of the passage of the McKinley bill
should be the defeat of the Canadian
government, as , it certainly will
be, and if following that defeat Sir
hich ird Cartwright come3 into favor a
the financial force in the greater half of
the continent to the north, then the
American people will have it in their
power to 'oatinua the existing accom-iu-xlati:;i

but at. the same time insist on the same
regulations as prevail 011 this side."

Want.-i to He.
Atlanta, Aivj, 13. Sam. Small is in
a quandary, lie wants u letter of mem
bership in some church, but his efforts
to get one have so far been un
availing. Although a preacher pf Na
tional reputation and president of a
flourishing voung institution of learn
ing in the land of Mormons, he finds
that he is a member of no church. Ten
years ago, liefore his reformation. Mr.
Small joined Trinity Methodirt church
during a revival.
He became a backslider and lived a
wild life, until again converted under
the preaching of Sam. Jones. No ac
tion was ever taken against Mr. Small
by Tiinity church when he strayed
awry. W hen ho came back into the
fold" he still kept his membership at
Trinity. But when he entered the

preaching that denomination the stew

When he announced his candidaey
for the legislature the Episcopal church
thought he could not consistently preach
and legislate at the same time, liefore
election, however, and while matters, no
far as Small was concerned, we.oin
statu quo ha went to Utah and was
offered the presidency of a new uni
versity of learning belonging to the
Methodists. The offer was too tempting
to refuse and Small accepted it, although
an Episcopaliap. This action severed
hisjcoiinection from that church.
A letter from Small to the stewards of
Trinity Methodist church revealed the
fact tliat lie was considered by the mem
bers an Episcopalian. He can get no
letter from Bishop Beckwi h, of the
Episcopal diocese, at, his treatment of
the Episcopalians, who had made every
preparation to ordain him into that
church when they heard of his return to
Methodism in exchange for a college
presidency, estranged his friend in that

London, Aug. 13. In the house of

tries south of Algeria and Tunis, and on
the same principle the English Niger
company could claim the tenitories le
liind its present sphere of operations.
It was obviously desirable to draw a
line separating the English and French
spheres of activity. The line agreed
upon gave a large part of the wedem
shore of Lake Tchad to tha Niger c ui
pany, including the empire of Rokoto.
The" country ih rlhwest of Lake Ti had

that the agreement would not affect the
