THE STATUS OF THE RAILROAD STRIKE.
Recfuct'on Felt at Milwaukee—Santa Fe Men
Reiume at Kansas City—Denounced
Chicago, 111., April 3.—Not a wheel has
been turned in the Michigan Central yards
since 7 o'clock this morning, and while no
strike has been declared, the Chicago end
of the road at least is lor the present com-
pletely tied np, the engineers, firemen and
swl'chmen all having deserted their posts.
The canee of the present state of affairs in
the Michigan Central yards ia the presence
there cf Q freight, which wa3 delivered
there yesterday, and the announcement by
the Michigan Central that they would
handle all freight delivered.
An afternoon paper published th9 ad-
vance sheets from the report of the grand
secretary of the Order of Railway Con-
ductors which will be sent out to the man-
agers of the various railroads. The report
is made up almost entirely o£ bitter denun-
ciations of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers. The following are extracts:
"It is unnecessary to do more than call
the attention of the members of the order
to the fact that divisions of the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers have passed reso-
lutions that after their trouble with the
Chicago, Burlington and Qaincy should
have been settled no member of the order
should be permitted to run a train where
members of the Brotherhood of Railway
Conductors are employed. And why? Be-
cause, forsooth, members of the order have
not been willing to make of themselves
stepping-stones lor the engineers to mount
higher. Because they have not joined in
the fight against their own interests to ac-
commodate the engineers. Because, in a
word, they have dared to ba men and
to attend to their duties. I say
with emphasis the time has come when
the conductors should in every lnstauoe
oppose this organization in its demand of
railway companies, because every time you
aid engineers yon injure your own stand-
ing, prospects and probable increase of re-
muneration. Where Is the instance on
record where engineers have ever aided in
the slightest degree any other tuan them-
selves? They apply to switchmen, brake
men, firemen, conductors, any one and
eveiy one they think they can persuade to
aid them, and an soon as the trouble is over
commence to prate of their organization
that keeps Itself from alliance with any
other. Its member?, who are all skilled
laborers, can not afford to place their skill
on a par with the unskilled labor of other
organizations by assisting them. Be-
hold them now on their knees to
the switchmen's and brakemen's asso-
ciations. It is time for conductors
to teach railway officers what the engineers
themselves already well know, and are
anxious to conceal—that nine-tenths of the
conductors of the United States are ca-
pable end trustworthy engineers. The con-
anctorw ca fcfeo Ohicago, Uarlingttua ttflU
Quiney have already demonstrated this,
»nd they are ready to do it on other road3.
I hope sincerely that the time is close at
haDd when they will not only be ready, but
willing to do so all over the United Bcates.
Tr-day en engineer receives pay for the in-
telligence, knowledge, skill, experience and
re:f possibility of the conductor. They have
l etuable to accomplish this result only
through the aid, or at least the sympathy, of
the conductors themselves."
RETURNED TO WOBK.
The Michigan Central yard employes re-
turned to work at 2 p. m. Upon what
terms the strike was declared off they
would not say.
✓ ADVISORY COMMITTEE.
AUTIlUn to be consulted,
Chicago, 111., April 8.—A local paper
says: The general advisory committee of
tlie Brotherhood of Locomotive Eagiueers
held a meetirg last night for the purpose of
coEsidctitg what steps were necessary to
pre vent radicals pnrsulpg a course that it
is feared will end in the disintegration of
the brotherhood. Conservative members
have become greatly alarmed over the law-
less actions of switchmen, as blame for the
actions of the latter is placed ou the
shoulders of the engineers. Switchmen
sided by radicals in the brotherhood, it is
c!a!ired, have assumed the management of
tho strike, and the officers of the brother-
herd are no longer consnlted as to the steps
necessary to be takfin. Most membars of
the committee strongly urged the adoption
of the resolution declaring that the Brother-
hood of Engineers had nothing in common
with the switchmen andisln no way respon-
sible for their action. Mr. Ho^e, chairman
of the Burlington grievance committee,
and two or three others were the only one3
who opposed such action, claiming that the
aid of the switchmen was needed to help
the engineers to gain their fight against tliB
Bcrlington. After a long and animated
disct5(--Bion it was decided that the advisory
committee depart atones for Cleveland and
consult with Chief Arthnr as to the best
course to be pursued hereafter. As a result
of 11 fcterday'a notice that the Rock Island
will iot handle Q freight, the Burlington
t-ss reinstated its complaint against the
Rrck Ie?Bnrt in the United States circuit
coort. Judge Gresham will hear the argu-
MANAGER STONE'S REPLY.
Chicago, 111,, April 3—When the Bur-
lington railway asked Judge Oresham for
an order to compel Rock Island to handle
Q freight, Rock Island answered by charg-
ing that the preeent stiika was simply a
part of the Baillngton programme to force
otter lines into joining the railway trust,
which it was said the Burlington desired. HI.
B, 8toce, general manager ot the Caicago,
Burlington and Qaincy, makes answer to
fteee charges in an affidavit, which was
filed this afternoon. The affidavit denies in
detail all the charges of Rock lalaad, which
it pronounces scandalous and false.
It says a rate war was initiated by Rock
Iei&nd and other lines against the moat
earnest efforts of the Burlington. The trust
story is pronounced utterly false. Mr.
Store oonounces as false and reckless the
charges of the Rock Island that the strike
vtas allowed in order to coerce the Burling-
ton's competitors to acquiesce in a rati-
way trust, and calls attention to the iaei-
cusable falsity of Rock Island's charge.
That complainant has been In bad faith
crowding traffic exchange ou defendant
with the purpose of disabling it in the op-
eration of Its road. Affidavits are on file
and bills of lading accompanying the sev-
eral blockaded shipments, whereby it fully
appears that they wore ail ship-
ic;nts rcado by private consignors,
em that cumplainant had nothing to do
with the origin or routing thereof, la con-
clusion, Mr. Stone declares that contrary to
the Ro;;k Island's assertion m^de ia their

a khighl's opinion.
amsterdam, n. Y., April 3.—Thomas
McGulre of the genoral executive board of
the Knights of Labor, who has been In
town for the past week, was interviewed
by a reporter to day. He was asked:
"What do you think of the railroad
troubles in the westf"
"The Chicago, Burlington and Qaincy en
gineers are virtually beaten," Mr.eMcGI uire
replied, "and there is no use in their pro-
longed conflict. It is the Knights ot Labor
who have beaten them. Onr people have
been getting even with the brotherhood for
its course in the southwest and Reading
"Do you not think their defeat in this
strike will be a fatal blow to the brother-
"O, this may be a good thing for the
brotherhood. It may toach them a useful
lesson. I think that the end will be that the
brotherhood will either como into the
ICnighis of Labor, or will enter into some
aicd ot contract with them."
the santa fe.
Kansas City, Mo., April 3.—At a general
and secret meeting of the switchmen in the
yards here, held late last night, reliable In-
iormation was presented to the effect that
the Santa Fe company would not force the
men to handle Q freight. The meeting there-
upon ordered that if tuch be the case the
yardmen on thut road who went out last
evening shonid resume work this morning.
Ia accordance with this the men alltook
their places again this morning. The Santa
Fe has posted a notice that that road will
receive no freight whatever of any kind to-
day. All the other roads are working ail
right excepting the Burlington.
the reduction felt.
Milwaukee, Wis., April 3.—The reduc-
tion of the working force on the St. Paul
rood in this city was felt most at the West
Milwaukee Rbops, where the number of men
laid off is enid to have been between 800
aEd SCO, making the total number out of
woikinthls city considerably larger than
was at first stated. In the West Milwaukee
yards there was rather more activity to day
than yesterday, and more was received at
the fre ight houses then on any day sluce
the trouble began. General Manager Dat
ton denied the report received from Green
Bay stating that the Milwaukee and North-
ern shops at that city had bsen closed.
"Part (f the employes of the shops have
been laid off, and that Is ail there is of it,"
THE FINAL STRUGGLE.
an advance to-day,
Chicago, 111., April 3.—Tho Burlington
cffioials aunnutlfced this H-o<■ cm.
other general advance would be made by
them tc-morrow. The delivery of cars will
be attempted to a large number of roads,
and the final struggle Jin the great strike
will in all likelihood then take place. At
police headquarters special officers were
being sworn in all day from reserve lists of
the department. Information as to what
roads cars would be sent by the Burlington
was refused at the Burlington offices.
No attempt to do business was
made by tho Burlington to-day, the plea
being that tho police were needed at the
polls throughout the city, where a munici-
pal election was In progress. An inkling
of how the Burlington general advance to
morrow may be mat in some quarters iles
In the fact that in order to reach the Grove
street sard the Q trains are obliged to paaa
over a portion of the Alton tracks, and
pays that road mileage on every train it
tends to Grove street, where connection
fs mnde with the yards oi at
least six other roads. Same live or
six (twitches are the fcev to the situation.
If these are spliced or spiked the Q
can not deltver cars to those roads, and ail
the king's horcas anil all the kin^'c, men
would be powerless to get a train through.
This le an Imminent danger, and one tnat
the Q pec pie evidently fear. The
switches of the Rock Island yards connect-
it g with the Burlington tracks are locked
and securely spiked, so that no Burlington
cars can be run Into the Rack Island yards.
Officials of the St. Panl road discovered
to-day that the switches communicating
with Northwestern track at Western ave-
nue, whereby all freight is transferred
from one road to another, had been spiked
during the night. The first conclusion ar-
rived at in the matter was that the
brotherhood men had done it, bat the
St. Paul officials took a different
view ot the matter after considering the
case,and now bold that tho spiking wai
dene at the Instigation of the Northwestern
cfiicials themselves. The St. Paul people
say tho Northwestern probably thinks this
the best way by which to avoid trouble, as
the spiking of tho switches precludes the
vossiblllty of any freight being tendered to
the Northwestern by tho St. Paul.

Washington, April 3.—The house com-
mittee on commerce has agreed to Mr. An
dersem's substitute to Mr. White's resolu-
tion providing for tho investigation of the
Chicago, Burlington and Q line? railroad
strike by a special committee of fiyetoba
appointed by the speaker. The resolution
declares that tho locomotive engineers now
employed are Incompetent, sad that tho
claim of a resumption of public duties by
the Burlingtcn is a fraudulent pretence and
gross Imposition upon the public, placing
vo. imminent peril both life and property.
