Olivia laughed scornfully and rode away, while Felix, preparing to follow, .uttered a last word: secure men enough through its agencies to take the places of all strikers—reductions were here and there made on the different roads, the tendency and effort apparently being to equalize the pay on all lines. It ia admitted the action of the association h«s great weight With outside lines and thus tends to establish one uniform scale throughout the conn- try. The further single step of admitting lines not running into Chicago to membership would certainly have the effect of combining all railroads in wage contentions against all employes thereon. The committee questions •whether any 'j! legal authority can be found to justify do not find comers from taking strikers places.

It is in evidence and ancontradicted, that no violence or destruction of property by strikers or sympathizers took place at Pullman and that until July 8 no extraordinary protection was had from the police or military against even anticipated disorder.

Nevertheless I determined for my own satisfaction to go to Paris and see if Fe* lix Briarfleld was at tho Hotel des Et- •hove svggMted and the proposed legali ' Mtion of "pooling" would result in an airRr»ar»t)on of power and capital dan- fnl and orderly redress of labor wrongs. To deny this is to forswear patriotism and to declare this government audits people a failure. As to tho great railroad strike proper the report says: It is apparent that the readiness to strike sympathetically was promoted by the disturbed and apprehensive condition of railroad employes resulting from wage reductions on different lines, blacklisting, etc., and from the recent growth of the General Managers' association which seemed to them a menace. Farther on the report says: It is ser- rangers. .If he were not, then my suspicions might prove to be correct, but if he were then I might believe that my adventure at the inn was a dream. [COOTISXJEO.] . • \i-o aolog back to J Felix, gttthorJugup t to *W« wUd gowo, Condemns Action of the General Managers' Association. THE ORGANIZATION ILLEGAL Committee Recommends a Permanent United States Strike Committee. _ iously questioned aud with much force geron* to the people a*d iheir liberties ' whether courts have jurisdiction to en- w well u to employes and their rights, i join citizens from "persuading" each The qnesUoa would then certainly arise | other in industrial or other matters o£ as to which shall control, the govern-, common interest. ment or the railways, and the end would inevitably be government ownership. Onlesa ready for that result the government must restrain corporations within the law. So l«ng as railroads are thus nermitteA to wmbiae to fix wages and tor L.wtr joint protection, it would be rank injustice to deny the right of all labor upon railroad* to units for similar purposes. It should be noted that until the railroads set the example a great union of railway employes was never attempted. The unions bad not gone beyond enlisting the men on different systems in _ separate trade organizations. These j and paid by the railroads and . acted in have no such scope or capacity for good I the doubly capacity of railroad employes The policy, the report says, of both the Pullman company aud railway managers' association iu reference to application to arbitrate closed the doors to uli attempts at conciliation ;nrl settlement of differences. The coiuuiitt^u is impressed, with the Belief tiua » diiier?Tit policy would have prevautcd' tho loss of life and a groqt loss of property and wages occasioned by the strike. A Bud Fr«re<lent.

They were armed isutfou to do so, Hor tot any such union or iucot pot ation to ftt tfer otfcouusel other* wise. Second—That chapter 867 of the United States statutes of 1885-86 be amended so as to require national trades unions to provide iu their articles of incorporation* and in their constitutions, rule» and bylaws, that a member shall «eas« to be snob and forfeit all right and privileges conferred ou htm by law as snca, by participating in, or by Instigating force of violence •gainst persona or property during itvlkes or boycotts, or by letklnit to prevent others from working through violence, threats or intimidations; alsfo, that members shall be no more personally liable for corporate acts than are stockholders' ID corporations. Third—The committee does not feel warrauttid.with the ttndjrit has been able to give the subject, to recommend positively the establishment of a license system by Which all the higher employes or others ot railways engaged in interstate commerce should be licensed under due and proper examination, but It would recommend, and most urgently, that this subject/ be carefully and fully considered by the propnr committee of congress. Fourth—The committee would suggest the consideration by the states of the adoption^ tome system of conciliation and arbitration like that for instance in Massachusetts. That system might be reinforced by additional provision* giving the board of arbitration to investigate all strikes, whether requested to do so or not, andtbe questions might be considered Kg to giving labor organizations a standing before the (aw o» heretofore suggested for trade unions. Contracts requiring .men to agree not to join labor organizations or 'to leave them as conditions of employment should .be made illegal, as ia already done iu some of our stfltes. Fifth—The commission urges employers to recognize labor organizations; that sucli organizations be dealt with through representatives with special reference to conciliation or arbitration wlicu difficulties* arise. It in satisfied that employers should come in closer touch with labor anil should recognize that white the in- teri'ste of capital and labor are identical they fire reclprocnttve. The committee is satisfied that if employers everywhere will agree to net in concert with labor; that if wages can be raised under economic con- tlitions, they be raised voluntarily and •. U \t when there are reductions reasons be i.ivon, much friction can be avoided. It 5d also satisfied that. It employers will consider employes as thoroughly essential to miustrial SUCCCHH I\H cK-.nt-ii nnd thus take labor iuto cunsnltnv.iuu at the. proper time, 'Tinch of the severity ot strikes can be and their number reduced.

Unselfishness is always ready to help others. The eagerness shown by hundreds of grateful, unselfish people to give their unsolicited testimonials to the value of Dr. Miles' remedies is not at all astonishing: Dear Sirs:— Seventeen years ago while engaged in writing ft sorrnon, instantly, I had an attack of congestion of the brain, which incapacitated me for nearly two years. I then resumed the duties ot my profession, but not -without more or less norva trouble. Five months since my nervous prostration became so severe and violent that at times I fell suddenly and unconsciously on the floor or ground. PreaohLuj,', reading aud writing, become impossible. I was confined to my room, aud my weight was reduced twenty-four pounds. I expected to die in a very short time. Providentially, as I firmly believe, I was induced to give Dr. Miles' nerve remedies a full and fair trial. Two bottles of "The Restorative Nervine," and one bottle of "The Restorative Tonic," together with one box of "The Nerve and Liver Pills," made a perfect cure. All nervousness is gone. I can eat, sleep, read, write and preach. In short. I could not wish to enjoy bettor health thaw that which I now enjoy. My youth ia renewed like the eaglo's. I regard It aa uiy imperative duty, doar sirs, to soucl you this testimonial, though unsolicited on your part, for the boueiit of the unfortunate thousands who are suffering ao keenly. And moreover, | should be glftd if you could arrange U> have tho same published. Very truly, A. H. LGM*. Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine is effective because it . quickly replaces the waste of the hard-worked nerve and brain tissues, and furnishes, direct, appropriate, and sufficient food for the nerve tissues all over the body.
