A RENT QUESTIDN OF OUR OWN.
With a Iierision aid an Appeal 1 here
from to Mart With.
New Youk, Sept. it Steinhardt sg Co.
are proprietors ol a si,t mill, and a num
ber of their eaipl .jes occupied apartments
in tenements owned 'jy the firm. Recently
the mill shut down, and the worku.en, re
ceiving no wages, w re unable to pay rent.
The firm applied for dispossess warrants,
but tenants contested their right to evict
them. The first of t lie cases, tiiat of John
Jingbeuse, a weaver, came up iu the Sec
ond district civil conrt before Judge Mur
ray. Jinghouse claimed that he entered into
a verbal agreement with Steinhardt s:
Co. to become a tena it iu their house on
condition that he rec.-ived steady employ
ment at their mil!, the rent to lie deducted
from bis wages. They had failed to keep
their agreement and had no right to evict
him. Tue justice lecided in favor of
Jinghouse. Theo.htr ttnants make the
same craim. Steinhardt oj Co. will appeal
the case. 1

Cincinnati, Sept. '-T.-Big Four train
men will canvass the vete in their federa

Information is to the effect that the train
men cl .im that there will be sufficient
rotes to declare a strike. Big Four offi
cials say they do uot fear it now hi cause
there has to be a two-third vote in each
of the six organization of the federation,
and not a two-thirds of the whole. And
not only that, but the vote must lj two
thirds of tbe full membership of each or
ganization and not a two-thirds of those
voting iu each. They conceded that
the firemen and switchmen w.ll probably
vote for a strike, but they pin their faith
to the engineers and conductors. .
Keport That it I Against striking.
The brotlierhood chiefs .ave arrived
here and are now canvassing the vote of
the firemen on the strike question. The
votes of engineers and conductors will be
canvassed next. J. W. Underbill, of
Cleveland, came here With the ballots in
charge and Grau 1 Master S irgent, is
here superintending the count, though he
has so far kept himself secreted from pub
lic view. The Indianapolis representa
tives here say that their men will give a
big majority against the strike, audit is
stated on the autho: ity of several visiting
trainmen that the firemen's aggregate
vote w ill be against the str.ke. This will
be a surprise to the r.iad officials, who
have found the tin men the most persist
ent in their demands for restoration.

Minnpaivlis. Sept. gt. It is reported
that the Big Four has engaged some 2a)
men in tiiLs city to take the places of the
men who are expected to strike at Chicago
and Cincinnati. At any rate something
over -go" men of almost every trade were
engaged f.r out of town work at a Wash

I-ol isVil.LK, Sept. -; The labor situa

road is more serious than it has been at
at any since tbe strike of the shopmen
against the reduction of 10 per cent, in
their wages. All the switchmen employed
in the IVcal yards of the road have struck.
The atiiitatcd ortlers of conductors, engin
eers, firemen, brakemen, and switchmen
held an animated union meeting at the
Fall City ball. 1 he strike of the switch
men was claimed to be on account of a new
rule reiniiring them.to carrv passes to be
submit ted to the deputy sheriff guarding
the shops and grounds before they could
It is generally lieiievel, however, to
have been caused by sympathy with the
striking shopmen. The strikers have been
active in endeavoring to prevent new men
being introduced into tiie shop. The
strikers are on the alert watching for a
train load of men said to ie coming from
the east. The rail way co-n;any lias erect
ed a high board fence around its shops
and yards and has a for -e of 1'VJ guards
sworn in as deputy sheriff. No violence
has been attempted by the strikers since
The meeting of the trainmen has ad
journed. All tiie men present were
pledged to secrecy, but it l learned that
no definite action was taken. Resolu
tions expressing sympathy with the strik
ing shopmen were passed and inflamma
tory speeches advocating a general strike
were made. Committees were appointed
to act for each order represented in case
of any emerger ty. It is conceded that the
employes have made every preparation
for a general strike if it be ordered. The
strike is a direct violation of the agreement
made last month.
A committee of the engineers at 2:1') a.
in. closed a conference with Master Me
chanic Pike, after which it was an
uouueed that they bad pledged the engi
neers not to strike. It was also said
that the striking switchmen w ill probably
return to work.
