Compelled to Strike to Protect their Lives. Albany, N. , Aug. 11. A peculiar feature of the striko as noted this morn ing i that tho engineers, firemen and conductors claim that no matter what their sympathies are, they will be forced to strike to protect their lives. They iy that the few now switchmen engaged uro incompetent and ignorant and that thev take their lives in their hands when they run a train. Two-thirds of iiio Hwitcht'M have no attendance what ever. They further assert that the train t liftovn or seventeen cars sent out have but one trainmen and in case of danger could not ba stopped. Tho men claim tfi.U they are thus forced to the wall. It is thought that tho men will make their excuse. Train All Behind Time. Home, N. Y Aug. 11. The Knights of Labor employed by tho Central in this city have all gone out. No work is loing done here.

From account of Grand Odd Fellows Celebration in Chicago Inter-Ocean. (Special Cor. State Chronicle.) Goldsboro, N. C, Aug. 8. In the last volume of the Lawyers' Edition of the Supreme Courts Reportsjis published an address of Justice Harlan, of the United States Supreme, Court, delivered at the Centennial celebration of the or ganization of the Federal Judiciary, held at New Yrork, February 4th, 1890, in response to the toast, "The Supreme Court of the United States," from which I make a few extracts, thinkiDg them not inappropriate: Upon the integrity, learning and cour age of the bar largely depends the wel fare of the country of which they are citizens ; for, of all mem bers of society, the lawyers are best qualified by education and training to devise the methods necessary to pro tect the rights of the people against the aggressions of power. But they are also, in the best sense, ministers of jus tice. It is not true, as a famous lawyer once said, that an advocate, in the dis charge of his duty, mu3t know only his client. He owes a duty to the court of which he is au officer, and to the com munity, of which he is a member. Above all, he owes a duty to his own con science. He misconceives his high call ing if he fails to recognize the fact that fidelity to the court is not inconsistent with truth and honor, or with a fearless discharge of duty to his client. It need scarcely be said in this presence that the American bar have met alljthe demands that the most scrupulous integrity has exacted from gentlemen in their po sition. In the addresses to-day n:uch was said of the Supreme Court of ILe United States that was gratifying as v. til to those now members of that tribunal as to all who take pride in its histcvy. But, Mr. President, whatever of honor has come to that court for the manner in which it has discharged the momtntous trust committed to it by the constitution must be shared by the bar of America. "Justice Sir' (I use the words of Dan iel Webster) "is the great interest of man on earth. It is the ligament which holds civilized beings and civilized na tions together. Wherever his temple stands, and so long as it is du ly honored, there is a founda tion for social security, general happiness and the improvement and progress of our race. And whoever la bors on this edifice with usefulness and distinction, whoever clears its founda tions, straightens its pillars, adorns its entablatures, or contributes to raise its august dome still higher in the skies, commits himself in name and fame and character, with that which is and must be as durable as the frame of human so ciety! The temple or Justice which has been reared in this fair land is largely the work of our lawyers. If there be se curity for life, liberty and prosperity, it is because the lawyers of America have not been unmindful of their obligations as ministers of justice. Search the history of every State in the Union, and it will be found that they have been foremost in all move ments having for their object the main tenance of the law, against violence and anarchy ; the preservation of the just rights both of the government and of the people. I read recently a brief speech of Mr. Gladstone, at a banquet given many years ago in honoring the great French advocate, Berryer. He had visited the south of Europe, and witnessed there much crime and oppression of the peo ple. The executive power, he said, not only had. broken the law, but had estab lished in its place a system of arbitrary will. He found, to use his own words, that the audacity of tyranny, which had put down chambers and municipalities and extinguished the press, had not been able to do one thing--to silence the bar. He, himself, heard lawyers in courts of justice, undismayed by the presence of soldiers, and and in defiance of despotic power, defend the cause of the accused with a fearlessness that could not have been surpassed. He was moved, on that occasion, to saying of the English bar, what may truly be said of the American bar, that its members are inseparable from our national life, from the security of our national institutions, W.
