NUMEROUS GUARDS. In the yards about twenty guards were on dutv, a majority of them wearing tin stars but little smaller than a pie plate. These were all ex tra men and had been sworn in on Friday night by Justice Halstcad. UriiiAir-r a striker would appear he If I I " i v a i a would be accoste l by a gusrd and re quested to leave the company s prem ises, aud in every iustance the request was heeded.

FREDS PREDICTION. "Is there anything new, Fred.?" asked the reporter. "No. not that I know of. A couple of engines are in bad order and we are fixing them up. . . i . "Are they ireignt or passenger cu gincs T "Well, they are not freight; you can rest assured of that." M Have you any idea how much longer this strike is goin to last ?" "Not a great while, in ray opinion. I would not be surprised if it was set tled to-dy or to-morrow." "What are your reasons for thus expressing yourself ? Have you any pointers that you can give the public?" "No, not at present," and before another question coutd be propounded the cool-headed committeeman had disappeared behind an engine and es caped. There were only three or four pas- the houee. hut several freights, none of which had team up. It was learned, nowever, that John Linderbury's engine, the 303, had been se ected for the afternoons work and that OHM Mvere wwe to run it, wi ile Will Voelkler would do the Br ing. ANOTHER MAN'S VIEWS. Returning to the general office, Hugh Fitzgerald, another member of the K. of L. executive committee, was found standing on the outside. He ws interrogated as to what was new, but was non-committal. "Fred. Page says he would not be surprised if the strike was at an end in forty-eight hours," remarked the reporter. 4 Well, it would surprise me it such was the case. If it is not settled by Sunday night, though, there is no telling when it will be. This tight has not yet fairly begun. If things move along as they are now until Monday there wdl be exciting limes in this section. There are five assemblies of Knights that are liable to be called out at any minute, an. if this is done the people will be gin to realise to a small extent the strength of the order." Have you any hope oi a com pro- raise ?" No. I have not. We have done everything in our power to bring one about, but Hoxie refuses to see our - m m I a ' . T committee.

There were several engineers within the buildiug, including Messrs. Vedder, Barker and ritz fwraid. and the probability ot getting a train out was ihe one subject ntf m vernation. There were none to v wj mm m w -. be found who entertained a belief that the attempt would prove success ful, and four or five of the engineers talk d with by the writer said that Friday's developments had convinced the engine was filled, aft r which it was run upon the turn-table again ana re main.! there until 2:05 o'clock.

Atthis juncture one of the The situation in Sedalia to-day is desperate. So other word in the English language fully expresses it. This is the eighth day of the Knights of Labor railway employes' strike,and the indications are that the trouble is no nearer solution than 4 was the day it was inaugurated, it as near Since 11:25 a. m. a week ago yesterday, but one freight train has departed from this city, and this siugle exception was owing to the fact that the strikers were caught napping, thus enabling the officials to steal a west-bound train out of 'he yards, The failure of the company to re sume freight traffic on Friday, on which occasion a striker captured an engine and carried with him a super intendent, an engineer and three Solicemen, did no cause Su erinten ents Sibley and Frey to lose hope entirely, and yesterday they determined to make a sec ond attempt to get a train mt of the yards. With this object in view, Mr. Sibley caused to be wniien the following communication', a copy of which was addressed to each of the gentlemen named therein : THE SUPERINTENDENT'S SIDE. To the Hon. J. B. RUJcman, Miyor of the City ofSeduLia, E. W. Sinclair, Mr. Hobo, W. D Hgenjritz, Mr. Motion, Peter Jefferson, J. D. Ruvxll, A. Farnham, B W.

Of this latter class quite a number visited h ast Sedali . between the hours of 9 and 10 o'clock a. m., and remained ot the a rftsomDtion ot freight trathc pend ing a settlement of the existing diffi culties. JAKE IN A NEW ROLE. It was 1:17 p. m. when Superin tendent Frey began the work of placing the turn-table in position, and at 1:21 by Pat Bratton's $3 Water bury watch the 4 oOiT'left its stall, with Master Mechanic Weller at the throttle.

He was faultleflv attired and sported a nair of buff-colored kid gloves. Not ..... 1 i.i l. : a word did he utter, aitnougn n was thought bv many that he was there for the purpose of requesting Myers and Voelkler to abandon the trip. "ALL ABOARD. The bell rang and the numerous guards fell into line, one-halt on either side of the engine. As the engine moved eastward the crowd followed, but it was with difficulty they kept up, as Myers made much better time in reaching the main line track than did Paul Smith on Friday. Trainmaster Lyon acted as pilot, walking in front of the eniriue. while Superintendent Frey was conspicuous on tne puoi, iue same posit on he occupied Friday. Chief Barnett was in command of the police, assisted by Officer Mason and Detective Ie Lone. When the en- rKad Npw York avenue the crowd veiled "Rats," but no intimida tion was offered. At Emmett avenue there was anoth r assemblage of strik ers and their friends, and some one veiled out, "Leave that cab, Mey rs."

Superintendent Frey waa standing in the cab when thereque t was made. To him Myers turned and said : "That man (pointing to Page) asks roe not to go out and 1 am going to obey him." Suiting his action to his words, Mvers left his seat, cast aside his over alls and Ktpnned from the cab. The crowd's delight is beyond description. Thev went almost wild, and when Fireman Voelkler follow-d, a minute or two later, the cheers that ascended were deafening. ENGINEKKfi in consultation. It was with difficulty that Myers made his way throuch the crowd, which now numbered not less than 2,000 people, many of whom were business men, and others laborers who had never been in the company s em ploy.

At the conclusion thereof, Myers returned to his engine and mounted it, t the dis gust of the strikers and their allies. The fireman also returned and it was evident that a second att-mpt was to be made to start. This evidently in censed a large portion of the multi tude, for they crowded about the en gine and cars, and elbow room waa at a premium. SIBLEY APFEARS. Up to this time Superintendent Frey had directed all the movements of the men. Superintendent oimey now appear d, however, and requested the officials to compel the 2,000 spec tators to leave the company's prem- ises. Mavor Rick man, Sheriff Mur rav with several deputies, Constable Carnes, the members of the board of uLiPpmpn and other omciais had arrived a short time previous y, and several of these gentlemen en deavored to assist Chief Barnett in dispersing the crowd, but to very lit tle purpose.

Section 1513 of the revised statutes of 1879 provides that if twenty or more persona armed or unarmed shall riotously assemble, it shall be the duty of the oeffiers to command them to disperse immediately, and if such com mand be not obeyed, to proceed to ar rest all oeraons refusing to disperse.

After several meetings and a tree dis cussion of the situation the board of direc tors of the Merchant's Exchange have finally concluded to take no formal action in regard to the strike. STOPPING PASSENGERS. A Olobe-Democrat special from Pacific, Mo, says: When the east-bound local passenger train on the Missouri Pacific road arrived about 4 o'clock this afternoon the engine was boarded by some Knights of Labor strikers, who enter d into earnest con versation with the engineer, a few minutes later the train waa sidetracked and the engine "killed." By dint of much persua sion the strikers permitted one of the coaches and the express and baggage ears to be attached to the East bound mail .rain and in this way the passengers of the local came on to St. Louis.
