OLNEY'S VIEWS, GIVEN. Discusses the Reading Brother* hood Controversy. fAVORABLE TO tHE EMPLOYES, •Say* Unions Are the Only Snfrgnilri! of the Wnrklngmiitt In HIM rtRRllngt With- Or. (anlKai) Ci)|)linl—Aollon of tlic llennlvvm Wrong—Tinst. Morlfl Fnr Setilini; tnbor Trouble* In Arbltrntlun, PHtLA.DEi.rmA., Nov. 4».—The contro- rersy between the receivers of the Bead- Ing Railroad rompany and such employes as are members of tbe Brotherhood of R;iilroad Trainmen has prompted an expression of opinion by Attorney General Olney in tho form. ,of A letter to Judnte Dallas of tho United 8tnty» circuit* court, before whom the case is pending. The •difficulty between tho two ortfnuisi'itions reached a cri".:8 on Awg 15 last, when General Superintendent JSwo'igard summoned before him U employes and notified them they should abandon thn Brotherhood as a condition of retaining their places with the railroad company. Vigorous protests were made against this alternative and the Brotherhood urged the receivers to withdraw it, but they refused to do it. Only Safeguard of Worklngmen. Attorney General Olney's letter is an exhaustive discussion of the question preBwitrd. In substance he holds thflt labor unorganized is practically powerless, that in combinations such a*, this lies the only safeguard ot the working. meu in his dealings with organizeJ-oAp- • atal, and that his right to belong to such • union—beneficial in intent and pur- post—is a legal right which, he cannot be deprived of. The letter is as follows: ; . '.'Suggestions, lespecting questions raised by petition of Hyinag, Ryiey and other nrnnbers of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, the pendency of this petition having been incidentally brought tp my attention, the issues raise impressed me aa of great gravity aud importance, not only as between the parties immediately concerned, but as regards the country at large. It seemed to ne that the court would not object to a brief discussion of tkocaso from a public, point merely, and upon this suggestion being made to the court it was at once •cordially, assented to'. The considerations following, therefore, are submitted by me as a anaicus cnriaae merely and bjr express leaye of the court: The material facts may be very briefly stated. The puiiUuuera are members of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, Some of them have : bcen members for seven or eight yeare—have each year paid annual dues and assessments which now amount to cQusiderar bje.sums of money—and by continuing! their membership will, in case of death •or permanent disability,, becouto entitled by tbeinselrea or,representaUva;! to hrge pecuniary payments from the tmuls of the Brotherhood. And by ceasing to be members they lose all benefits .from the assessments and dues already paid and: forfeit all claims upon tbo Brotherhood treasury. Constitution utid rules of, tbo Brotherhood and ol tbe subordinate lodges are before the court at a part of the petition. No controversy or antagonism has ever arisen or existed between tbe Reading railroad aud tbe Brother: Aood. , Tbe Reading officers have uotifted the numbers of tho Brotherhood on its lines »,unless thuy c«a«o to be such members they 'will be discharged f-rotn their present employment on or before Oct. 8. Tbu receivers nuke no complaint of the manner in which tho Brotherhood em- ployes discharge their respective duties. Tbe notice haa been given simply, because of .such employes membership of, tho Brotherhood aa is conclusively shown by th« following telegram received by, Grand Muster Wilkinson in reply to bis remonstrance against tbe course proposed to be taken: The policy of this company Is well known to be that it will not oonnent tliat pontons In lUt Hurvluu shall owe alluvium:" to other organizations which may maku datum uprtn them which aroIncompatible with their duties to their umploycrs. This portion wa» takuu udvisodly au<i wt huye 110 iutontiou of drunj'tljnK from It, Jos. H. 11.Minis, PreHldi'iit and Receiver. Thus, if tbe re«elvtrn are right and their rule is to prevail, membership of the Brotherhood by'aud of itsulf incujji- cltixteu for swvioe» on tbo road. It Is wpeotfully submitted that tbe receivers are .wrong and that the action proposed by them ougbt not to bo gauotioutd by the court. Tbe court, it Is admitted, ougbt not and cannot law down any lucb rule on tho ground that until uitlW tbe purpose* aud object* of tbo Drotberhood, or tbe woaiiM by which they «re to bo attained, are shown to bo illegal. : Tbe general purpose* of tbe Brother, boon are stated iu tbe preamble to tlw constitution ai followoi "To ujiite thp railroad truiumum to promote their well- farejuid advance thttlr iutareate, woially and intellectually; to protect tbeir f«|itt» lit* by tu« wwofai of a iy.tetu.»tio Uau- ttvojeuue society, ueedful lu a calliug ap biaar«lon» a. oura, thin fraternity bap beeu organiKed; porauudw tbut it u for the iutemte both of our member* and their employers tuut» good understand- iiitc eliould ut all times exist between tbo two; it will be thy couitant endeavor of ibis otjjauiiwtiou (o ( o»tubli»b mutual coulMuno? and create «ud- majutuiu bar- luoniou* relations," Suoh are tbe aliui aud purpcww ot Uie Urothorliood of Rail way TnUiiuiiin.

Thus, by the Brotherhood constitution and rules, a strike does not take effoct till approved. First — By the local grievance committee. Second— By the general grievance committee. . THird — By a board of adjustment. Fourth— By the grand muster with the consent of two-thirds of the members involved, while striking or inciting to strike, except In accordance witti the above rules, is punished by expulsion from tho Brotherhood. Nevortueless, nnioni? the moans o.f accomplishing the ends of tho Brotherhood Is the bringing about of a stake. As what a "strike" is is not defined by tho Brotherhood constitution and rules, its precise nature must be determined by the court. And as the Brotherhood ia entitled to the ordinary presumption of lawfulness for 'its methods as well as its objects until the contrary is shown the court will hold the thing termed "strike" in the Brotherhood consUVution and rules to bo something lawful unless there c.annot be such a thing as a lawful "strike." Element* of • Strike. But whatever may the eustomnry or probable incidents of accomplishment* of a strike, it cannot be ruled that there is no such thing as a legal strike, that every strike must be unlawful. The necessary elements of a strike are only three: The. quitting of. work by concert between two or more simultaneously— • aud in and of themselves involve no taint of illegality.^ A strike becomes illegal' when to these necessary features are added others, such as a malicious intent followed by actual injury, intimidating, violence, {he creation of a public nuisance or a breach of the peace of any sort. RIskR of, Strike* No* ObvlntaA. It should be remembered in the first place, th« risks of strikes are not obviated by excluding the members of the Brotherhood' from the receivers' service. Men, deeming themselves aggrieved and seeking relief or redress, though not iis- •ociated »» any formal way or for any general purpose, may easily unite for (ho •ingle purpose of a strike. In thajj view the Brotherhood constitution and rules may be wejl regarded as operating in restraint of strikes. By compelling the question of strike or no strike to be acted upon af&rmutively by four or five different and independent tribunals they certainly tend to prohibit a strike that is rash or reckless or for other than weighty cause. .-. .-. .....-, ..-,,. :. : NO better mode for the settlement, of contests .between capitaj, and , labor bus yet been deyjse4^r,trjwj.tbaij artyJraUpo, The court, by. appointing repeiyors, con-, •titutes Itself not only au employe of labor but the arbitrator of all disputes between it and the receiirere who't&ay 'justly 'be regarded as representatives -ot capital. : It occupies tbe dual capacity of. employer and arbitrator naturally awli inevitably.

Mr. Babcock also says that from present indications the Republicans will have at least 44 members in the senate and in this number is Included Senator Jones of Nevada. Among the telegrams received at headquarters was the following from Settle, Greetfsboro, S. C: "It is conceded at Democratic headquarters that we have elected seven congressmen in this state; Third and Sixth districts doubtful. Sixty counties heard from. We have 65 members; Democrats, 2H. This gives us control of the house if we can hold them, and the Democrats concede us the senate." John Wilson, Spokane, Wash., also telegraphed: "We have elected the two members of congress and have about 30 majority in the legislature. Congratulations on the great victory." MISSOURI — In the congressional fight Dockery of the Third, Tarsney of the Fifth and Cobb of the Twelfth, are tbe OJily Democrats that have been elected on the face of tbe returns. Hatch, in tbe First district, is clearly beaten by Clark. .Hall, in the Second, for whom there were strong hopes until now, has surely gone down; Ellison, in the Fourth and Heard in the Seventh, are buried. In the Eighth, "Silver Dick" .Eland's rural constituency, has tiveu the go-by to him in favor of Joel made at the torpedo station, but tbo foreign powders are not satisfactory. Thsro is an increased temptation to evade specifications and deceive inspectors in passing upon material.
