EMPLOYES VISIT OAKES, THEY FEEL ENCOURAGED BY THE IN TER VIE RESENT PAYNE'S REMARK. Northern Pacific Employes Dis pleased With the Course of Manager Kendrick— They See Oakes and Gain Courage From His Remarks— Renounce Re ceiver Payne's Remarks. As has already been foreshadowed in these columns, the conference commit tee of the Northern Pacific trainmen did not like the manner in which they were used by the company's general manager. They considered it was cav alier treatment to keep them here dilly-dallying along waiting for the company's ultimatum, which action they considered but a means towards an end. That end was the coming of the restraining order, already fully ex plained. They felt that the company's answer might have been given them last Saturday, and that they should not have been kept waiting until Tuesday. Mr. Kendrick said yesterday that he could not consistently give any answer or know whether he could act in the premises until the men had formally presented their case. He feels that he was prompt in giving the ultimatum, as each statement re quired full consideration, which was brought about as rapidly as possibly. His position is, that the men first ar rived here a week ago Sunday. On the Monday and Tuesday following their representatives waited upon him and the general superintendent. That was to arrange for a definite day of hearing,' and to arrange for as large an attend ance as possible. Friday last was de termined on. At that time— ll a. m. two hours were consumed in talking over the matters at issue. A shorthand report of every statement made by the spokesmen of the brotherhoods was made. Then it was agreed to meet again on Saturday. At that time all the raport had not been transcribed, and some of the matters had not fully been looked into. Then the final hear ing was adjourned till Tuesday, since Christmas day occurred on Monday. That day the answer came. Mr. Ken drick feels that under the circumstances there has been no delay. The Northern Pacific trainmen them selves totally discredit the published rumor that representatives from other systems are here watching the outcome, and that they are ready lo lend financial and moral support. Mr. Johnston, ofthe Northern Pacific conductors' brother hood, said last night that it was untrue. The employes have decided to liter ally comply with the terms laid down in the restraining order issued from the United States court. The men were s! rew.l enough to be diplomatic. They resolved to go straight to the receivers, preferring not to injure their cause by going to the courts first. It was a few minutes after 11 o'clock yesterday morning before the subcommittee ot the conference committee met Receiver Oakes to make a final appeal. They wanted to sound his sentiments. They sought to ascertain whether he had the authority or desire to solve their prob lem, should their grievances be founded on facts. Receiver Oakes informed the subcommittee that he would, through Mr. Kendrick, accept from each broth erhood a formal statement in writing of its case. Last night the men were feeling much encouraged over the outlook. They like the way they were received by Mr. Oakes, and stated that they had agreed to his suggestion. The subcommittee of seven will jointly prepare their state ment, each member for the organization he represents will prepare his brother hood's case, and argue its merits with the eeueral manager. Receiver Oakes will receive from Mr. Kendrick these CjyE§§ RISING /.BREAST/. "MOTHER'S FRIEND" SJLfyS offered child-bearing woman.

X.lX_\ separately, after he has carefully con sidered it. Then the three receivers wili pass upon the whole matter and they will in turn present it to the courts. At yesterday's confab Receiver Oakes threshed over the same straw that Mr. Kendrick did, and went into the story of the necessity of cutting expenses of the road, enforced upon the receivers compulsorily. He also impressed upon the subcommittee that the receivers are hound to see that the men are reason ably compensated for . their services. The men seemed to have much faith that their cause is resting in good hands, since Receiver Oakes lias evinced so fair and conciliatory a maimer toward them. The supplementary restraining order which has been issued has reached St. Paul, and the men have copies of it in their possession. It is iv terms like the original, excepting that tne names of the urincipal men in all the brother hoods are mentioned as well as the grand masters. The published remarks accredited to Receiver Payne, that he did not expect the men to accede to the injunction, rather nettles the members of tho con ference. They do not like it that he should have stated that, in case of a strike, he could pick up plenty of men now waiting in St.Paul for a job. These statements they declare gross exaggera tions, charging them with evil intents they have not had. NORTHERN PACIFIC IXJUXC TIOX. The injunction was a foolish move to make. That is no reason why the em ployes should think it necessary to adopt a defiant tone. They don't have to be foolish also.— Duluth Common wealth. If such things are sanctioned by the courts of the United States it will not be long before a corporation may cut the wages of their employes to just what they like, and should they object to it would invoke the aid of these courts, aud make it a misdemeanor for them to strike.— Crookston Times. The injunction issued by the federal court is meant to restrain the employes from leaving the employ of the North ern Pacific in a body, on the ground that such a procedure would constitute a conspiracy, but there is nothing in the order that restrains any individual from quitting work if he so desires.— Fnrgo Republican. The issuance of a writ of injunction before a strike has been really declared or before some open demonstration of intention to strike is almost an unprece dented action on tne part of the court, and will doubtless add another phase of a very interesting character in the solu tion of labor problems involved in rela tive rights of employe, employer and public— Jamestown Alert. "I should be sorry to see a strike on the Northern Pacific railroad," said a gentleman who is closely identified with that road, "but I am afraid that some of the hotheads will precipitate a row. There are a good many men who have worked for the road for so long that they almost consider that they have vested interests in their positions, and as they have never known what it is to be hard up, they are difficult to handle at this crisis.*'— Duluth Herald. We do not understand that there is to be any order preventing men from call ing for time, or resigning as they may desire, but this order only prevents an organized and simultaneous quitting, which might delay traffic and prevent those depending upon the road for wood and coal and other necessaries from be ing served. We sincerely hope there will be no trouble for it can only result in disaster to the men, who will lose their situations and cause untold suffer ing to families and dependents.

THE SAINT PAUL *D4.ILT GLOBE: FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 29, JED3. year, and they are looking for the long end early in tne proceedings. B.IWTXK IW^IGNS. Cleland, of the .vut'ißm Pacific, HI. Successor. The St. Paul Local Passenger associa tion held a called meeting at the union depot, in the directors' room, yesterday morning. The meeting was called by Secretary W. G. Sawyer. To the sur prise of the members of the association it was learned that the secretary had called tho meeting for the purpose of resigning his position. Mr. Sawyer, when he first took theoffice, understood that its discharge would cover matters of a clerical nature largely. He subse quently found that this was not all there was in it. There are continually aris ing matters which require decisive action on the part of the secretary. As so many railroads are in interest,' and as h eir ideas of certain matters often con flict, Mr. Sawyer felt that he could not, consistently, nor in justice to his other position— that of union depot ticket agent— hold the place. The re tiring secretary was tendered a unani mous vote of thanks by the members of the association for the' able manner in which he has discharged the duties of the oflice, and a resolution embodying this sentiment was ordered engrossed upon the records of the association. Mr. Sawyer was elected to the secre taryship at the time of the formation of the association, on June 24, 1893. He was made union depot ticket agent in the fall of IS'J2, succeeding Brown and Knebel. A. M. Cleland. of the Northern Pa cific passenger department, was chosen unanimously as Mr. Sawyer's successor, and will take his new position on Jan. 1, 1894. In the interests of economy, the salary ot the secretary was cue in two, and reduced from §50 to $25. Mr. Cleland was certainly a happy selection, employed as he is by the Northern Pa cific, as he can never be charged with partiality in rulings for or agaiust any of the Chicago-St. Paul lines. . Official Appointment. The Great Northern has issued a cir cular to the effect that on and after Jan. 1, 1894, F. E. Draper, assistant auditor of freight receipts, will assume the ad ditional duties and title of freight claim agent, vice \V. J. Evans, transferred to the freight department to assist Mr. Somers in that office. These two will perform the work of the general freight agent. H. E. Danz, who leaves the serv ice of the company.

London, Dec. 23.— Admiral Algernon de Horsey has written a letter, to the Times, enclosing a letter which he has received from an officer on board the British battleship Resolution, describing the terrific experience of that vessel during the recent gale in the Bay of Biscay. The officer says that he never, before went through such a terrifying time. The Resolution, even in moderate weather, rolled forty-five degrees each way directly she entered the Bay of Biscay. Continuing, he writes: , ?.' "We steamed slowly, keeping the vessel's head to the sea, knowing full well that any deviation of the helm would break down the engines and we should broach to and capsize. The en gine room had five feet of water in it, and we ran the chance of the fires being quenched. Everything was closed ex cept one small hatchway amidships, which was well protected, and through this for eighteen hours seven hundred people had to go. The atmosphere below became filthy and poisonous. The next day. the gale moderating and coal running short, the question arose what it was best to do. We dared not turn for fear of going over. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon of Dec. 21 the weather allowed us to alter our course a couple of points and make for Queenstown. The ship behaved splendidly, as far as she could, but the evident absence of stability makes every man of mature experience aboard feel thoroughly un safe." Admiral De Horsey, in commenting upon this letter, says: "The Resolution may be a good design for fighting. It isapossible, though I do not admit it. that the exigencies of war necessitate top-heavy and unseaworthy ships. But nothing is an excuse for a new iron ship so constructively weak as to become dangerously strained and leaky iv one gale." In the house of commons today, the Right Hon. Sir U. Kay-Shuttleworth. secretary of the admiralty, replying to a question regarding the recent severe experience of the battleship Resolution, in the Bay of Biscay, said that the structure of the Resolution was not damaged, and that the cost of the re pairs to her would only be 51,750. EFFORT Or' rtis LIFE. Congressman Breckinridge Re- ceives an Ovation. Lexington. Ky., Dec. 28. — Hon. George C. Lockhart will not make the race for congress in Col. Breckinridge's district. He said this morning that he had finally decided not to run. »This will leave the fight between Breckin ridge and W. C. Owens. Congressman Breckinridge made his first public ad dress since the institution of the Pollard suit this morning at the Turf club, be fore the Masonic lodges, who were giv ng their annual banquet. He had been invited to speak, and knew that his future depended on the success which attended his effort before a body that had been reported to be his deadly enemy. Miss Pollard's father was at one time grand master Mason, which is supposed to have given rise to the ru mor. The congressman was on his met tle and was heartily applauded. The reception he received when he closed amounted to an ovation, and proves that Breckinridge has lost none of his influence 'with Fayette county people. The speech is pronounced the effort of his life. . l mSSm- AND 'BLOOD PLOWED. Editor and Merchant Fight on; a Train. Special to the Globe. , >' y St. Paul Pakk, Dec. 28.— An excit ing little scrimmage took place this evening on the (5:30 motor train of the Burlington between E. E. Cowell,editor of the St. Paul Park Times, and Alex ander Frazer, a merchant of this v place? in which the editor had his nasal appendage badly disfigured, and the merchant received a bad cut on the head. There has been bad * blood be tween them for some time. Both have undertaken to lead the political arena for this part of Washington county, and nothing but blood would settle the trouble. More Trouble lor Foster. Tiffin, 0., Dec. 23.— A few weeks ago. after ex-Gov. Charles Foster had completed his negotiations to secure the funds, arrangements were made with the creditors' committee to settle at fifty cents on the dollar, but since that time, J. B. Gormley, assignee, says that errors have been discovered in the work of the appraisers, which upset the whole arrangement, and which will re quire Mr. Foster to raise a much larger sum than he was led to believe would be required. Rather Rough on Arthur. Chicago,Dcc. 28. — Arthur A. Winter, a traveling salesman from Muscatine, 10., was arrested today on the eve of his marriage to a Muscatine belle, and the nuptials postponed at the demand of J. T. Dougherty, a druggist, who has secured a judgment of 8750 against the prospective bridegroom. The judgment is the result of a suit for false arrest, growing out of an old-time dtspute be tween the men, who were formerly business partners. Winter's pretty fian cee. Miss Rosa McLeod, accompanied her prospective Jiusbaud when he was placed under the sheriff's charge. Miss Pollard Home. Fraxkfort, Ky.. Dec. 28.— There is every reason to be'.ive that Miss Made line V. Pollard passed through this city last evening and is now at the home of her relations. Her mother resides about nine miles out in the country from Frankfort. Miss Pollard was traced to Lexington by Col. Sears, of the New York World, and it is most certain that she came from Lexington to this city and from here to her home. Col. W. C. P. Breckinridge is now in Lexington, only thirty miles away, and it appears as if both left Washington ou the same day. Jewish Historical Society. . New York, Dec. 28.— Tho American j Jewish Historical society continued its annual meeting today in Columbia col lege. An address was delivered by .

MICHAEL DAVITT IS MAD. HE DENIES ALL CONNECTION WITH THE CRONIN CASE. IT IS A .HEiIE FABRICATION. The Noted Irishman Takes Occa sion to Say That Such Ruffian ly Attempts at the Moral As sassination of Public Men Through Newspapers Can Co Made Only in America. .[Copyrighted. 1893, by the Associated Press. 1 ** London, Dec. 28.— 1n reply to a dis patch sent to Michael Davitt. the dis tinguished Irish Nationalist, on Dec. 24, addressed to the Land League Cottage the following letter was received today, dated from Ballybrach, County Dublin, Doc. 27:77? , "I am obliged to Melville F. Stone, general manager of the Associated Press, for asking me to rep'y, through the Associated Press, to statements made in some of the Chicago papers, alleging that I had advised the removal of Dr. Cronin. I cau only answer that it would be just as true to charge me with having advised the removal of Julius Ccesar or Abraham Lincoln. I never even heard of Dr. Cronin's name or existence uutil tho spy L*** Caron SDoke of him at the Parnell commission hearings, and the news of his murder came to Europe. The further alle gations that I wrote a letter to Detective Coughlin at that or any other time, is without the shadow of founda tion, as I neither knew him or of him. wrote to him directly or indirectly, nor have I been written to by him or by any body on his behalf in my life. The whole story is a monstrous fabrication from beginning to end, and must ema nate from some madman or perhaps from some interested knave who wishes to satisfy some feeling of malignity in coupling my name with the commission of so foul and cowardly a crime. lam reluctantly compelled to say, in connec tion with this infamous slander, that the press of America is the only press iv the civilized world today through which ruffianly attempts like this, at the moral assassination of public men can be made with impunity.
