Pa., Aug. 93. An accident occurred on the gravity railroad which asce:id:i Mount l'enn, near here, nt 11 o'clock Friday morning. A well tilled car, on raiching the upper terminus of tho road, from somo reason or other said to have boon tho failure of a brake to work started down the five-inilo grade. At Horse-shoo Band, tho second curve from tiie city, the car jumped tho truck and was smashed into kindling wood on tho rocks. Several neerilo were killed and a largo number injured. Another Account. Later advices from Mount Penn say there are different storieB as to tho cause of the accident but it appears that when the tower waa reached, the point where the gravity portion of the road cum luciicoH, the engine was detached, when tlio car ran away while the passengers were riill on board. The distance to tho point of starting is five miles, and it is estimuted that tin's was covered by the rnnaway car in about three minutes, the car attaining a fearful spx-d, estimated at eighty miles an hour. It remained on the track to the foot of the piano, going around all the curves, while the passengers shrieked in their fright and several jumped off. When tho car reached the station at (lie foot of the plane it jumped the track and rolled down a lifty-foot em bankment, where it landed upside down with tho pasaoogers imprisoned inside. The greatest excitement prevailed, and soon a largo crowd gathered. ANOTHCFt MISSISSIPPI SCHEME. !'i'ons:tl ti (livo tho Kloctivo FrauchiHO to Women Who mm KiMll iCHlnte. Jackson. Mi.-., Aug. 21!.

As a class, ho said, they were tin; ni"st polite men he hud met with in any quarter of the globe. Wher ever his travels took him lie could always tell an American by his offabiu manner. It seemed, he said, ns though every one was a horn courtier, and nowhere was it. more noticeable tlian in the cilios of the old world, la Loudon t h Americans could be selected in any public hull or gallery, for they always took their hats off no mat ter what room they entered, or if it was too uncomfortable, to remove head gear it needed but the pre-seuco of a lady to cause the hats to lie immediately lifted. It was quite tho contrary with the I'.ritislieis; tHey never uncovered their heads except imder extraordinary circum stances. "1 was going ilmv.i the street in (his city but tin; other day," continued tho stranger, "when I saw a lady drop her purse. It had hardly readied the sidewalk before a little street arab grabbed it, touched the loser's arm and, with hat. in hand, said: 'Lady, here's your pocket book.' It is" not only to the opposite sex that this politeness extends, hut it is re freshing to observe the courtesy with which men treat each other. The Ameri cans are tho greatest handshakers in the world. Then 1 notice they touch their hats to each other when pr.ssing on the street. This certainly is a courteous, hos pitable nation."

Mr. Towderly, tn his address to tho Knights of Labor Mid to the public, indicates the cause of Ti:a::.CE v. powdekly. the discharge of the railroad employes, which discharge caused the strike. Mr. Powderly write-:: IMschareed Without Cnuse. "During the son don of the last state leg islature, the Knights of Labor, of New York, were active in the passaga of the weekly pay bill. The committor of the knights. lepreMm'ing tho employes of the New York Central, were " faced in the legislative committee room nt Albany by the aitorneys of the railways and brow-beaten, questioned raid terrorized.

"There exists not the shadow of a doubt in the mind of that committee that their tuilL..w rglei-ont for endeavoring to secure the passage of the nlwve-mentioned law.

Wolltd Not Do latino-. After declaring that he had offered to arbitrate or to investigate with fir. Webb the complaint of the discharged men and that both offers had been re fused, Mr. Powderly writes of the com ing struggle: A Struggloto Maintain Liberty. "The struggle is far more momentous than it was during t lie American revo lution. Then our fathers fought for lilierty; now we are lighting to maintain it. Then the enemy wa-i 8,001) miles away. To-day he U int.enched in our own dominion. lie has his fingers around our leni&intures. He stands at the dcors of congress to bar otit legisla tion in the interests of tho masses.

It is not liecauso a few cents more a day or somo paltry coneeadon to the men re quire that this strike was precipitated. Its origin lies way beyond those consid erations. Tho real fact lies in the fact that our order has been struggling with the (iiesti(.iis which concern the control of trusfg, corporations and syndicates by the government of the people. Knight nod rut-mem. "The allied forces of the Knights of Labor and the Farmers' AI aliance are marching on to Wash ington to secure legislation favor able to the whole jieoplc.

Jt is with tho hope of turning our at tention aw,v from these matters that this warfare is mode a art of t lie iiliied forces.

Orderly Kinl Law-Abiding. "The orderly and law-abiilinir conduct of tlx." men on strike has won the admiration of the public, and yet the best feelings of the community have been destroyed by the introduction of an armed force under eciiunund of Uolx-rt Iinliorton, a man who holds no commission from the state or nation to recrnit or arm men for military duties.

The conduct of the man since tho rtiilre begun has Iweu most orderly and commendable, and until it close no Knight of Labor will be found in an un lawful act of any kind. We are pledged to maintain the law. We will obey the legal commands of the state but not of the corKration which defies public opiu ion and has no regard for justice when dealing with its employes." POWDERLY TO ARTHUR. His Letter to the Chief of the llrotliei hnod of Engineer. Mr. Powderly has written the follow ing letter to Mr. Arthur, grand chief en gineer of the Brotherhood of Locomo tive Engineers: There is at present a strike iu progress on the New York Central and Hudson Hiver railroad. Iu this strike is Involved a principle which we cannot afford to ig nore, and tho principle Is that of fair play. Mirny of the men on strike are firemen, and belong not only to the Knights of Labor but to the brotherhood of Locomo tive Firemen. They are manfully eon tending tho right to maintain their or ganization. They are now at a standstill, and in some instances their places are 1m ing filled by members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, who have stepped down from the foot-hoard to pick up the shovels which were dropped by the firemen. Ara you willing that this should con tinue? Are we to understand that this action is to receive the sanction of the organization you represent f The Knights of Labor desire to know how you stand on this question, for you are authorized to voice the sentiment of your order. The members of vaiilous Brotherhoods of Kail way Employes are desirous of knowing where you stand, for on your answer, we desire that it be a public one, depends Ihe fut lire of your organization. We desire to know where to place it. Shall it be classed among the organizations of industry ot among the allies of capital f If your members continue to do the work of firemen we shall know that it is wilh your consent, and the futurj will bo plain before us. We do not ask for your official sanction of the. strike. We only ask for fair treatment at your hands, and that we havo u right to expect. Tne ma i who takes the place of another iu this con test is untrue to the cause of organized labor. The organization which approves of such conduct must be regarded in the Batne light, and we want to know fro.n your own lips where to assign the Broth erhood of Locomotive Engineers in thi-t roster of organizations. V'e have asked of the other organizatiou.,oJlilw!j -employe tOi take sides with us. They are responding nobly, and the future of labor seems to indicate that between us alt there will he a far better understanding tliun ever before, but, your voice must be heard either on the side of the railway or Ihe men. Which will it he? I remain, very repcctfully yours. T. V. Powi)Ei:i.y, Grand Master Workman of Knights of Labor. Why I'owdorly Wrote to 91 r. Arthur. Telegram! received in Albany locate the cause of M. Powderly s letter to Chief Arthur us occurring iu that sec tion. Tne charge is that the striking Knights of Labor firemen's places in that city were tano.i by tho relief force of en gineers thus giving practical aid to the road iu tilli ig vacancies. The inference" drawn was that the firemen are hos.ilo to the strike:'. lnvestiga io l shows that on the Sat urday following the first day of the strike about thirty liroinen between Al bany and Syracuse left their engines. The blockade not yet being raised lias precluded the need of filling all of these places, but such oiiginojas were needed Jiave been supplied by other engineers taking the places of the strikers and working as firemen. It is safe to say that in and about Albany are at least ten Brotherhood men doing the work of the strikers. The Knights of Lilxir men there claim that Chief Arthur knows nothing of tnis, and that it will now be stopped. IN THEIR OWN COIN Will the KiiKliieer nnd Firemen I ay Mm k the Knight or Labor. Several engineers and firemen were seen by a -reporter, and one and nil as sented emphatically that there was no intention on their part of going on strike out of sympathy with the Knights of Labor. One of the engineers said: "We are going to pay back the Knight-i of Lalxor in their own coin. They went back on us when we were in trouble, and now we intend to get square." In other words the engineers are not only not in sympathy witli thn strikers, but are anxious to see them lieaton, us it, means a Brotherhood engineer in the place of everv striking engineer belong ing to the Knights of Lalsir. Several engineers and firemen said, relative to the assertion that there was an agree ment between the Brotherhoods of En gineers and Firemen . by which the en gineers are pledged n it to work with green firemen, that there was no such agreement. Said one of the firemen: "I do not think m my firemen would strike even if ordered to do b. The Central llailroad company has never done anything to antagonize its Knights of Labor workmen." Don't Think of lOtt-lklng. Another fireman, who is a memlier of the brotherhood, said: "During my last few triiis between hero and Albany I have seen and talked u ith nearly every fireman on the road Wt ween this city and Buffalo, and wilh only a few ex ceptions all of them said they had no thought of going on a stiike. but, on the contrary they vere pe.fectly satisfied and would stick to tln-ir engines." OPENING THEIR PURSES. Money Mill lie PorthroinliiB Aitlil the Ntrlker. Said a nroininent Knight of LaW: "I have Isvn told by dozens of mesi that ! they would respond liberally to Pow deily's apical for funds. The ossein- I blii-s iu this city will hold a meeting! mxm to arrange for the receipt and for- j wsrding of money to support the i strikers. Powderly's letter has pro duced a good impression." NO ALLIANCE WITH KNIGHTS. Rrrrrlnry Dibs nl the Itrot herhoml of I irritien. Talk. TniKE Hunt:, Ind., Aug. 2.1. Grand rVvreinry Delis, of the Brotherhood of Lin am -live Firemen, talked freely re girdiug the itui -uding strike on the New York Cmtr.il road. Ho snvs that when tho stiike began the local mem hers of the supreme council. Grand Mas ter Sargent, Grand Chief Howard and himself discussed tho situation fully snd divided to to take no part in the strike. These members of the supreme coun cil at once communicated with other member of the council, i:U of whom, except Grand Master Sweeney, of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid association, acquiesced in their decision. Mr. Debs says the absence of Grand Master Sweeney in the east at the time these communications were sent out is the probable cause of his failure to respond. Soon after this Grand Master Sargent received a request from General Master Workman Powderly to go to New York nnd consider the grievances of the Btri k ing knights, many of whom are also members of one or another of the rail road men's associations. Knell Independent. "It is true," said Mr. Debs,"that while the Federation does not favor a dual membership in a Brotherhood organiza tion and tiie Knights of Labor, holding that a member of the Federation should owe allegiance alone to it, it neverthe less is a fact that many railroad men are also Ktugiits ot Labor. "Too much significance should not be attached to tho meeting of the supremo council to lie held here Saturday, No meeting of the supreme council can bo held unless there is a full representa tion of the members. F.ach organiza tion represented in the supreme council must act for itself. For instance, when tl"i supreme council meets tho three representatives of the Switchmen's asso ciation will vote in private on the ques tion of ordering a strike. "The result of tl sse several votes is then laid before Toe full council. Should there be t ne negative vote in any one organization the strike cannot be ordered. It will lie seen, therefore, that the members of the supreme coun cil must be a unit on the question or the stiike cannot be ordered." Mr. Debs pointed" out tho fact that while perhaps a third of the railway employes were not meml era of the fed eration, yet, as in tho (juincy strike, the employes of that road were almost a unit, whether belonging to the federa tion or not. RAILWAY TRAINMEN. Interview With the Secretary of the lli-ot lierliood. G i.i:snriifi, 111.. Aug. 2:). In an in terview W. A. Sheehan. the secretary and treasurer of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, said: "I regard the meeting at Terre Haute as one of great significance. 1 cannot say what the outcome of tho meeting will be. If the grievance is unanimous ly sustained by tun council, the council will then decide upon the final proposi tion of settlement, ."front which there can be tin deviation.' "This will lie presented to the com pany, probably by the four chiefs. If the com any refuses to accept the pro position the strike follows. It will prob ably lie Monday or Tuesday before tho outcome is reached. If tho strike should come, I believe that the tie np would lie complete. I have every reason to believe that a majority of the engineers would stand by us. They have been loyal to us whenever they "have been asked." AT ALBANY.
