(Special Every thing at this point remains quiet No attempt has been made to-day to mov e any train, though the report early this morning that such an etfort would be made created much excitement and in terest. The striken as a rule, remain away from th railroad premises, tne main por tion of tbem being about the streets of the city. Thf re was a tendency whm it was reported that the trains were to be moved to go to the yards, but the leaders aud cooler heada among the strikers prevented it by advising the men to remain away, say in thre waa ''plenty of time when the whiatlea began to blow." Ordtrs w. re sent here to-day for the insertion in to-morrow's daily papers of an advertisement for hand on the Gould sysiem but what reception it will meet with seems to be an open )Ustion. The Bazoo jut now is in great demand at this point owing t ita full reports of the situation from all points as well as from Sedalia, the recognized head center of the strike. The late interview of Governor Martin, by the Kansas City Times r porter, ia the subject of mm h comment, and, while many regard it as a very diplomatic docu ment i non-committal, others see in it an outspoken sentiment which they interpret to suit their own peculiar views. It is pos itively asserted that an effort will be made all along the line to morrow to move trains, and - ne thing which gives color to the report ia peculiar aiitics of a Baptist goepei 1 ne fact tnat Du n conductors sharp, Ailing umler the name of J.

Hir m Swope was arraigned to answer to tne charge of assaulting Louis Jerrell. The parties live eignt miles north of the c ty and the trouble grew out of a quarrel be tween Swope and Jerrell about a debt ol $5 owed by the lax er to dwope, tbe defendant.

Judge Hide happen tug in on a social visit to his f riend, J ude Haistead, heard of the young man's sad pught, and in the goodness of big heart voluuteered to deiend him, and the cas was proceeded with. During the trial, Juuge Kiile, in questioning the prosecuting witness, asked the question : "Weu, you say you owed this young man $5, and you promised to pay it aud failed to do so, did you not r "1 object,' said County Attorney Lamm." "State your objection," remarked the court. 1 Weil," replied tbe county attorney, "he asks the young man if he is n t a liar. No prisoner is obliged to crim ina e himself. " The objection was sustained. "Well," asked Judge Kiife continu ing the examination, "you went out in the yaro to fight Swope T Yes, sir," answered the witness. "Ah, ha," remarked the defend- tool which he pawned in order to raise funds to gratify his unnatural appetite. Yesterday his crime was de ected and he w s placed under ar rest by Officer Kelly. Subsequently i e was turned over to the county authorities and taken before Justice Marvin to answer to the charge of petit larceny, to wiiich he pleaded guilty, and begged that his punish ment be made as light a possible. As Jones' family are entirely dependeut ! upon his efforts to- a living, and as he mrmmkmd fc.Uk fully u WaU m drink when released Justice Marvin, out of pity for tbe poor wife and chil dren, sentenced him to one day in tbe county jail and costs. The total term of imprisonment will be ten days. If he fails to keep his promise when released he should be given a long term on the rock pile. Horaford's Acid Phosphate.

The article concludes bv saying that the minister will have plenty o time to reflect on the error of his way in allowing his feet to wander from the path ot rectitude to his neighbor hog pen. For the publication of this article Mr. Morton says he is damaged to the amouut of $10,000, fr which sum he asks judgment and costs. The case is docketed for the May term of the circuit court.

One prominent leader, however, said to the Bazoo man, " 1 am satiti?d the out come of this strike rests with the people and busines men of the country. We are not loolihh enough to believe we can suc ceed without the aid, sympathy and en couragement, but if they are sincere in their long and loud complaint against the grinding railro d monopolies and es p nally the Gould sysieiu, they are bound to sustain us, and if they do we are cer tain to kill the evil they complain of and bi ing it to reason and u-rms. ' Of course like every issue ever yet brought up, this one has its two sides, and both sides has its adherent- here. Among business men there seems to prevail a disposition to stigm tize the strike as unnecessary, un called lor and an ira mitigated evil, both to the strikers and the public, and especially to ihe business interests, but on the othe hand ihe labar element, a hile admitting i s hard.-hips and ill effects, cla m that it is a necessary evil to eradicate a greater wrong.
