SANDERS' HEN CWGHT. Surrender Unconditionally to Marshall Neely. THE DARING DEEDS OP THE AEMY i«ti|h at All OtMtacleg Except Wltteh«gter« — Khronte to Topeku In Vunenger Conoheg— Onvcrnnr t^wetllng «a»e the Boad No Agslntnnce— Carload ; of Floor for Coxey'i Army. ' KANSAS Crrr, May 11. —Sanders' reckless army of comntonwealers defied pursuit, and laughed at obstacles again Thursday, Three times their stolen train was reported stalled before cars •md engines purposely run off the track ahead of them jftnd each time the rail- toad officials bel| ,/ed they were masters of the situation. '" But in less time .than It took the railroad, company to, jump their engines from the track at one place and tear .up the rails at another, the go ahead: weavers' had built a new track around the feeble obstructions and re- laid the torn up rails. . Attitude Of Governor towelling. The army sympathizers were hoping that the daredevil band might run the guantlet of United States Marshal Neely's Winchesters and reach Topeka without further molestation. Once at . the capital they believed the . train steal-. ers would be free from care and penalty. The , attitude of Governor Lewelling gave this idea encouragement. The executive said nothing sympathetic when addressed on the subject by interested parties, but neither did he say anything condemnatory. He was entirely noncommittal and abstained from interest- Ing himself in the matter beyond replying to communications sent him by railroad officials or petty peace officers. To One who applied for troops the governor sent the following: James Hart, Sheriff, Horace, Kan.: , Telegram asking for troops to arrest 503 men who. have stolen Missouri Pacific train received. Wus train stolen in Kansas? Have any depredations been committed in your county? Have warrants been issued and processes been resisted f Are the men still in your county r . L. D. LEWELLitfG, Governor. The railroad company found themselves in a peculiar fix; the state authority having declined to help them and the •county authorities not caring to do so, preferring to, let the wild train move on than to have several hundred men to arrest and place on trial, it took legal .ingenuity to get the- railroad in a position to apprehend the wild men and runaway train at all. -They; depended on their , general attorney, Bailey Waggenw, to drag them out of the difficulty . and- he . succeeded in pressing the 'United States. Into service by getting the oterk of -the United States circuit at Topeka to issue .write for the unknown common wealers, an action which Populist leaders con- as unlawful. Made an Exciting Rncn. With United States <Marshiu Neely and a force of 60 men,- each armed with a rifle or shotgun, Waggeher started west •on "a. special train, from Topeka, k The .fo^-ce and firearms were increased en:route and when tho.speclul reached Scott City], Kan-, 100 deputy marshals, each with a gun, were aboard. The special made an exciting race to that point, aa here it was determined to give battle to the foe; if battle there had to be; here the line was drawn, beypnd which the weal: •em with all their Mfjr« and industry Would not be permitted to pass. : Meanwhile the > wealers were reported ••flying eastward, having broken camp •at Gnivington, Oolo., where they peacefully spent the night rolled in their blankets in the open air, where their •train stood still on the main track, Formidable obstructions were reported as to be thrown up in front of them al Diston in the shape of three engines and boi oars and the supply of water for their engines was said to be cut off, : Appropriated a first Class Engine, But the first dispatch of their move- went* for the day showed them as having passed Sheridan Lake, Colo,, at 10:18 a. m., mountain time, and as crossing the state line into Kansas at II o'clock. .They were by the "ditch" and other barriers and their engine was •teaming all right. At different point* from there eastward the wealors' wild oat was reported as moving carefully and roaring by other places; at 40 miles M hour. The man at the throttle, it is •aid, was an old Missouri Pacific engt Beer and be knew every sag and curve of the road. The wild train reached Horace, pan., about fc o'clock. There they found an eastward bound passon< ger and inail that had been held by the company. The wealers commanded tho crew of this train to wove and after on exchange of dispatches with the superintendent, the train sped away. Regard- Ing thtt train as a safe pilot, the wual- ars kept close in its woke, Tbe wealeri bad now/a first class locomotive, having abandoned their rusty old switch v engine At Horace, 'Kan,, aud appropriated tho best pafaeuger engine they , could find ill Without mUbap the runaways reached .qoH: pity, which they ui>pro*ob,od warily.

To provide against surprises of any kind the eastbound mall train was held to obstruct the track and th* armed deputies <(fer% set to guard the special. Shortly " 'after supper, or about 0 o'clock, Sanders and his army decided to surrender unconditionally, and it was immediately arranged to take the entire number, 450 of them, to Topeka under arrest. The coal cars were sent to Pueblo and the engine on the Sanders train was hitched to ,the train of passenger coaches. Into these coaches the commonwealers were bundled, arid about midnight the train started, for Topeka. : . _ . 1 : Kelly's Army Well red.

ST. PAUt, May 11.4-The: Metropolitan Opera house was handsomely dresseo With flowers when the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers met' Thursday 'afternoon, and every one of the 3,000 •eats was filled. Tile address of Arch :bishop Ireland was'.-the feature of the meeting.contatniilg some talb!|on the labor question. -Welcoming addresses were made by Mayor Wright for the city, Attorney General Guilds for the" state o: Minnesota, Archbishop Ireland, and others. Grand Chief Arthur closed'the session with, his biennial address. After some general remarks on the prosperity of •the Brotherhood Mr. Arthur referred .to ; the depressed condition of business anc ; regretted many of th'e people would fail 'to learn the lesson of individual economy that should be taught by their experiences of the parft year. . " "'. ' . Heartily ilndonied Arbitration., • Dnring-ihe paaft t\vb years the brotherhood haB IJ paid'405 insurance benefits, to the amount of f948,SSOO, making a total of $4,721,869 paid to the widows and orphans since the brotherhood was organized in 1807., Thirty-eight subdivi- sions'have been added since the last con vention, making a total of 685 subdivisions, ': representing 85,000 members. A) differences of opinion with railroad companies were adjusted^ satisfactorily, save in the case' of the 'Ann Arbor and .the Lehigh roads, a report of which was made at that time. He heartily indorsed arbitration, which should be compulsory, rather than to allow the labor troubles to go top.far. : Archbishop Ireland, in the course ol his speech said: "The interests and rights of labor, often have I pleaded for them, and lovingly do I plead for them anew. I hate that view of labor which makes of it a mechanical force purchase- able at mere'market value. 1 1 "I demand for. the laborer and his family, so far as .through just and rational laws we can reach thereto, the means of decent livelihood, the opportunities to de- yelope intellect, to care for. bodily, health and moral and religious growth, to receive, a due portion of the joys of human existence, in recompense of the toils which will not fail to press upon them. Brief Me* For Capital. "Let me now enter my brief plea for capital Property'is the very foundation of the social fabric; it is the incentive and reward pf industry and energy. Qe who .menaces property, is an anarchist and the anarchist ia the deadly foe of order, of right or society. He, is the wild beast, solely bent on destruction from which security ' and civilization never can 'drift;'.Without capital the millions of willing' workingmen are idle and the factory • doors remained closed, fields are nntilled, mines hold their treasures hi concealment, no ships plough teas, no railroads span continent*. Without capital labor is a latent,., unproductive energy. Why, today, are there among.wlegioni qf unemployed? Because .capital hies away from us. It is an ea»y matter in ojub room and 011 pub- Ii9 square to discuss capital aud its obligations. As a matter of fact capital is timid of its lift; make it insecure and it will shun yon and leave yon to beat' the air with your idle'arms. , i > •'Thelawsof the financial world .are ai inflexible aa those of the four: seasons of the year, the state or the country ;,in which, through mob riots, or oppressive statutes, property ia endangered and made unproductive, will be surely abandoned to their sterile resources. 1 ' , Strikes Likened toW^rs. "lam not afraid to mention the word •trike, Nor will I say that it never should be counselled. I say this much, however, of, strikes; They- are in thei industrial world what wars are between popple—to be dreaded for tbe /ruin they caus^-and never..,to. be .urged .except when all Qtber council* have failed. and wbe,re, great interests are at stak«;,and when strikes do take place,. they must be liVe wars between civilised notions, conducted under the dictates of justice and humanity. > ."Amid tbe utmost fury of strikee property must be held .sacred and the liberty 1 ofpther jn#u allowed, as we deuuud that our ^ibaricy be allowed, , Thaw are the imperious taw of social justice and of God'i religion, This is an age of reason, as distinguished from previous ages pf and brute force. Why, then, cannot nations cease putting their prido in their power to murder men and arbitrate their differences? Aud why cannot employer* and employe* equally avoid discord by peaceful arbitration."

UmdNTOWN, Pa., May 11.—Not since the beginning of the strike, not even in connection with the wild scenes attending the killing of Paddock, has there been such excitement as developed Thursday in this region, particularly in the south- era end, or Fayette county section. The introduction of outsiders to take ttu places of the striking coke workers has been commenced. The striken, especially the Slavs and Poles, are simply furious. They are startled and enraged by the actual appearance of an advanci guard of workmen consisting of two carloads of strangers who have been run into the Morewood plant of the H. C. Frick Coke company, where they wen engaged to go to work at the , old rate* and most of them are reported inexperienced men.

During the banquet President Cleveland entered the hall quietly and was standing in the center of the stage with the members of his cabinet and their ladies before he was recogniz- •d. The house shook with yella when Judge James P.

The president responded: "lam a good deal embarrassed by the mention of my two distinguished, predecessors and by the fact they were'both members "of the society tinder whose auspices this banquet is given. I con* gratnlate the members of the fraternity represented : here. I am obliged to acknowledge my own shortcoming in not being a member of it. Perhaps it is my fanlt; certainly it ia my misfortune. I, too, have the honor to belong to a great fraternity, one of which George Wash ington and Andrew Washington were prominent ! members. A fraternity whose 'grip means a united stand for American interests, whose pas* word is •The Peopls'g Cause' • under all circum stances; whose temple is not as old as the temple of Solomon, but as old as American institutions; a fraternity that never can die, for its rules will always be before the world. Would yon know the name of this fraternity? It is the broth* efhood of free and accepted and patriotic American citizens."
