Ciafm They Have Won « Victory Over the Promoters ol the Interchangeable Milenge—Railroad News. The friction which has arisen over tne interchangeable < mileage book causes the scalpers to rejoice. They perceive that a disagreement threatens to disrupt the plans prepared by the general passenger agents. The present interchangeable mileage ii the worst thing they have had to encounter, but the scalpers claim they have now won a victory In the position the Yanderbilt lines h»ve taken; they thick the new mileage will meet with disastrous defeat, and that in a short time the scalpers will be on good fighting ground. For some time past they have feared the interchangeable mileage more than any action that congress might take to wipe out tha scalpers.

RAILROAD NEWS. Frank Thomson, president of the Pennsylvania and the lines it controls, receives 1(50,000 a year, the largest salary paid any railroad official in the country. According to the review of the year's operations, prepared by the Railway Age, the mileage of track laid in the United States duaing 1897 is little more than in 1896, notwithstanding the increased earnings of the roads and better general business conditions. The total mileage reported for the year Is 1,864 miles. The Pennsylvania Is building at its Fort Wayne shops 200 cars especially adapted to the transportation of potatoes. The cars are constructed much similar to refrigerator cars, having double sides with sawdust between, it being the intention to keep the cold out, Instead of the heat in —the reverse of the refrigerator car. While there is yet' some rat/her rough track on the Chicago division of the Panhandle, passenger trains are making the trip on time.

Marion is agitated at present by a most remarkable boycott of the labor unions against Armour &Co., the meat packers. The cause of complaint was the discharge of a number of women employed at the packing house at Kansas City, Mo. The Kan sas City laoor union declared a boy cott and the Marlon union decided to uphold the western labor union They succeeded in Inducing every butcher and meat dealer In Marlon to quit handling Armour's meats Thl stirred up tne meat kite and last E'rlday he opened up a retail meat market In Marlon, at which prices were cut in two. The choicest porter house steaks were sold at 7 cents a pound and other cuts in proportion The result was tbat the people o Marion fell over each other in their efforts to buy meat at such unheard of prices. The butcher shop was as jammed and crowed as the space about the ticket wagon at a circus The crowd was there all day Friday and Saturday, and this encouraged Armour to open two more shops to day. He threatens also to sart retat groceries, as some of the grocery men who sell meat were among those who followed the demands of the la bor unions to boycott his meats. It is claimed that since Armour began to retail meats, the regular butchers have not sol* enough to pay rent. They held a meeting and showed signs of weakening, but the labor union leaders ara encouraging them to hold oat and promise to proceed with the boycott on different lines, that will prove more effective. The matter is attracting wide-spread attention by reason of the interests Involved . Later—The boycott against Armour & Co. by the union labor has been declared off. Yesterday a special meeting of the Central Trades and Labor council was held and an unconditional surrender made by that body. This means thit the boycott wnlch has been carried on by union labor against the Chicago firm is recalled and all local retail meat dealers will be allowed to purchase meats of Armour. The firm will [withdraw its retail stores from the city and prices of meats will be restored to those existing prior to Armour entering the field as a retail merchant.
