CHICAGO, Fc'b.-^7. -i-Tho Chicago, Burlington & Q.iinry engineeni and Bremen went out on strike at -I o'clock Monday morninz. As is customary In such combats the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers will offer no objection to Uikinx out mail trains, furnishing an engineer and fireman for each mall car and engine the company chooses to' sond_out Nothlugelaan III be moved, howaver, unless by nod-bruthorliood men which the company may bo abla to employ. The Brotherhood of Locomotlvo Firemen Is linked with the engineers In this movement, and a long ami exasperating contest seems about to ensue. Itis also customary .for the brotherhood to give at least five hours' notice of an extended strikf, and Sunday afternoon a committee from boUi' brotherhoods waited on General Munngar Stone at the general offices of the > company on Adams street Thl», - consisted of 8. R Ho^e, chairman of the engineers' grievance committee, and 3. H. Murphy, chairman of a like committee from the firemen. The duty of this delegation was easily performed." Mr. Hoge acted «s spokesman on the start, and informed Mr. Stone that as he had refused to concede their requests as modified ' by Chief Arthur, the brotherhood, which he and his colleagues represented, would, at 4 o'clock Monday morning, 'enter upon a peaceful and orderly strikf. | "AH the engineers and firemen," he said, "have been ordered to quit work, and, ns you are aware, this is done with the consent and approval of Chiuf Arthur, and Qrand- Master Sargent, of the Firemen's Brotherhood." ' Mr. Stone, In a quiet, unconcerned way, informed them that he had discovered no rdasou to change his decision which he gave Mr. Arthur on Friday lost. Thus the interview emit*!. The delegates retired and ro- IKirtod to Moiwrs. Arthur and Sargent at the KIRK'S Grand Pacillc. The whole performance was a mere formality. It was not done for tho purpose ot reopening negotiations with the company, as Mr. Sargent afterward explained, but to give the company reasonable warning of the strike. The officials already knew, he said, that a strike would take place but they did not know the hour. The visit of the delegation was simply to notify them of tho exact hour. Chief Arthur was seen Sunday evening and asked as to bis In-, teiitious. "I may go ensl," he said, "for a short time any duy or hour, but you will understand this, wo have fathered this strike aud we will take cure of it to the end. It is not a fight between tho employes of the Burlington system and that company merely, but it involves every railway employe In the United States belonging to t|ie five brotherhoods connected with the railway service.'' "What about tho mall trainsF "Our policy is always the same on that jj&lnt The Burlington officials have already been 'duly notified that we«re ready and will coitlnue to las ready to furnish one engineer and one firemtu to taka out every mail car over tho road." "When you say mall car do you mean mail tralnisr freight runs which oeoupy more than ten hours to the 100 miles overtime shall be paid at the raw of 40 cents per hour for engineers, and 2\ wnU par hour for Bremen. There Is also a demand for free transportation for engineers and firemen and their families, and for msmb r» of the brotherhood, and no examinations or tests except such as are agreed upon by the general rifsnager and the brotherhood are to be permitted. In defense of these demands, B. E. HOR«, of the strikers' committee sayi: "The wag-si question Is the 'root of all evil' In this affair. We are dissatisfied with the present wage system and with the psv we g)t. In tho past a mnn has had to work ten years on the Chicago, Burlington & Quinoy road before be receivel the highest rale of piy thoy give their engineers. Eligible men, between 20 and 35 y<«ani of age only, are flrac pnt to work wiping engines at the round-house. They are kept at this work, tho hardest I know of, for two yearn, receiving from $ to $i.50 per day. They are then given a job firing, and are kept at this for flve years. Their pay for this service ranges from $l.M .to f?.i£ per day. After thin apprenticeship a man may get Ms engine, when his wages on an average are SJf cents for enrb mile he travels. Say a man starts at Ji50 t day for a lOO-mile trip. At the beginning of bis second year he will receive t'J 75 for the same service and t3 for the third and each succeeding year. This Is our chief cause ot eomplaiiiC The one year men are given ex actly the same work to do as the three year men, and are presnmably fully as capable. We offered Mr. Stone a compromise laa Thursday. We olTored to aewpt a rate tha would average 8X cents per mile for all en glneeri, firemen to receive 6) per cent o that sum, with the nooliihment of the classification rule. Tho Rock Island road pays lu engine men an average of 3«£ cente par mile; the Union Pacific road S.85, and the Northwestern road,8.70, so you see our 3}^ cents demand was uot excessive. It we go out we will have the switchmen anil brakemen with us, as well as all the engineers and firemen ot the country." To this the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad replied substantially as follows: "The Important change! which your committee suggest are as follows: "t Pay to be governed soleiy by the mllvi run without regard to other conditions or circumstances. ! "i. A Urge average Increase In existing rates of pay. "3. The abolition of any classification based upon length o; service, age, or experience. The answer thon goes on to say that thu basis now In Vogue Is the "beat one to fairly provide for differences in the amount of labor, time and responsibility required of on- glneors'upon dllforent runs and dlvUlont A branch passenger engine hauling two or three cars, where there are two trains each nay dully, is more easily handled than on Important main line passenger engine wheru there are twenty or more trains each way. A brauch freight engine hauling eight or ten cars, with euay and regular hours, and by daylight, demands less labor from engine- men than an engine on the main line with a heavy freight train, although the inileago may be the same. The trip basis, in view of all the varying conditions, covers valu» received. An arbitrary mileage basli disregards the value ot the service rendered, and In thu long run, we fear, would be unsatisfactory to the men and to the com puny. . "For example: On the GaUsburg division of the Chicago, Burlington At. Quincy rail- .road an engineer on a light paawuger run of two cars .between Bulaaud Vermont, under present schedule, earug In twenty-six days HiioO, and the firemen $74.10; under thu schedule which you propose the engineer would receive $1.71.OS, and the fireman $102.64. Upon the first division of thu Cheyenne branch on the Burlington & Missouri River railroad a passenger train of three cars, requiring six hours and ten minutes dally, is paying under the existing schedule to engineers $144 pur month. Upon your schedule it - would pay $189 per month. On the Kansas City, St. Joe & Council Bluffs railroad, on the run from Villisca to St. Joseph aud return, under the this will probably leave for Chicago early weisk, with more to folljw. CHICAGO, Fob. 27.—The following has some significance apropos of the C. B. & Q., 'riko. "The Knights of Ijc.bor will tnke no land in the Burlington strike," said Grand Worthy Foreman Richard Griffiths to a reporter; "the brotherhood and the road can Ight it out botween themsilves. There Is no very good fooling existing between the tonights of L»bor and the Brotherhood of, [/ocorootive Engineers. Two years ago when the groat strike occurred on the Missouri Pacific road aud the engineers belonging to the Knights of Labor were ordered out, brotherhood engineers took their places and the backlioni of tho strike wai broken.* PHILADELPHIA, Feb. *7.—Capt George L. Eastman, national organlzner of the Knlghtsof Labor, Is authority for the statement that the executive committee of the Reading railroad strikers has notified General Manazor Stone, of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroad, that in the event of a strike on his road, and the failure of Chief Arthur to withdraw the brotherhood engineers who took the places ot strikers on the Reading road, they will send him M) engineers at once.

The whole flre department wai called out, but all the buildings were destroyed, together with 46 and Bit and the Wllllanu building on the opposite aide of tht street. The loss will be about 1375,000. cuwlon about the fishery treaty, and opposition which has been developed here, makes the following explanation ot Its terms by Secretary Bayard of general Interest. What the secretary says balow explains his understanding of sjmo ot tha provisions which have become subjects of discussion! "In the treaty Just concluded and submitted to the senate," said Secretary Bayard, "the United Slutos have sacured practically everything we have contended for. I don't hesitate to say that If Canada had conceded to American fishermen In IS8»1 one-fourth of the rights that are secured for them by this treaty there would have been no trouble at all Every difficulty that the American fljh- erman hns had to contend with has been re moved by this treaty. "The terms of the treaty explain themselves, and If any further explanation be needed It is provided In the accompanying message, which tbo president communicated to the senate. In th~at menage the changes which will be brought about from tho condition of affairs with which we hsve had to contend in the past are very plainly pointed out. • "Generally It can be itated that no fishing 'ground of any value whatever to American fishermen has been conceded tojCanada by this treaty. There has been some adverse comment upon the delimitations particularly specified In regard to some Canadian buys, but in these nothing has boon lost Egrnont bay, In Northumberland strait, Is perhaps the largest bay for which the lines of delimitation are specially stipulated in the treaty. But there is no fishing whatever In that bay. Experienced navigators say that during the past twenty-one fishing vessel has been tn that bay except in transit for some place else. "Of all the bays and creeks thus conoed»d to Canada The only one which contains any bait or fishing is Chalour bay. Americans do not want It, and could never use It for fish Ing purposos( and undor the treaty It will be at their disposil for all the use they will want to make of it. Thoy can enter it at any time, as thoy can enter all other Canadian ports and bays for water, wood, irhelter, or repairs. Chaleur boy is possibly about twelve miles wide at tho entrance, so that we give them a concession ovor and abova the ten-mile rule established for other bays." The correspondent callod the secretary's attention to article 8 uf the treaty, which says: "The three marine miles shall be measured from low-itater mark, but at every bay, creek, or harbor not otherwise specially provided for in the treaty, such three marine miles shall be measured seaward from a straight line drawn across the bay, creek, or harbor, in tho part nearest the entrance at the first point where the width does not exceed ton morino miles," and inquired if the drawing of the straight line at the ten- mile width wus not a retention of the bead- land theory of the Canadians. Tho secretary said it was not The headland theory of the Canadians, for Instance, would draw a slrsiglit line from on* end of Prince Ed ward's island to the other, enclosing a semi-circular piece of water forty or fifty milns In wldlh and many hundreds ill length, and many hundred square mllea In extent, or from one fork of Cape Breton to the other, which would have a similar effect The ten-mile width was simply a convenient extension of the nix-mile width, for, measuring three marine miles from each shore, no United Slates vonael could enter a bay all miles vtldoatthe entrance. One of the reasons for drawing I he' lino at ten miles Is that the American flsliormon lose nothing thereby, while the terms of the treaty are reciprocal. Th • Canadians are to have tho same privileges in our bays that we have lu theirs, and as we have perha'ps fifty largo She Wants to Tell III" Fortnue, Bat Ha Retires In Good Onler.

As to article 15 of the treaty, which stipulates for larger privileges In Canadian waters' on condition tbut the United States remove the duty from Canadian Osb and fish oils, Secretary Bayard aays the treaty is complete without it. The British .and Canadian plenipotentiaries were eager to have the duty removed and to give a quid pro quo. But the American negotiators firmly declined all along to stipulate for any change lu the tariff, or even for any recommendation to congress to make any change In the tariff. And while this hypothetical provision Is Inserted in the treaty where it can do no barm, but where it insures a quid pro quo should congress make the 'change- referred to, no communication, no recommendation will be made to congress on the subject. It Is for congress to do'just what it pleases about the matter without 'any suggestion from the exocutivoj for tho modus Vivendi, which is to endure for two years. Secretary Bayard takes no responsibility. It wu» freely given by the other side and nothing is asked in relurn. It calls for no legislation on our part, an! no executive action on our part. It Is entirely for the benefit of our people aud to be executed entirely by the other side. v- - ' The secretary, however, believes that many of tho United States fishermen might find it very prolltubla to pay $1.50 per ton for the advantages offered them.

Shipments and receipts bava more than doubled during the past wtiok, and the railroads have lost la St. Paul and Minneapolis business alone $31,0* In seven day*. Tho loss in St. Paul and Minneapolis business alone since the war began has been $15H,(XX), and over the whole territory affected the loss has not boon less than $4,500,000. very valuable, and tho average tonnage of the vessels, he mya, Is not over seventy tons. All the waters secured exclusively to Canada by the treaty,. the secretary says, do not contain as much as one per cent of the fishing open to the United States fishermen, and he refers to the testimony ot the late Professor Spencer F. Balrd that these same exclusive waters of Canada have no value whatever for the fishermen of the United States. For fishermen with the puna seine used by the United States fishermen it would be pronttes* and positively dangerous to nib in the shallow waters, and among the rocks of the Canadian harbors. Secretary Bayjird will transmit to congress in a few days some additional correspondence which will shed more light upon the diplomacy of the whole affair. Iu the meantime the secretary is very well satisfied with Missouri made a persistsnt flght In the house Saturday agamst public building bills. He appealed to the bouse to ooasa Its waste of money on these public buildings, and come down to the Democratic doctrine of economy and reduction of taxation. He referred to the president's message (a reference which was received wltb applause on the Democratic side) and as a Democrat denounced every attempt to take the people's money from the treasury by Ihe Blair educational bill, public building' measures, and other squandering proposition* No Boom For New Naval Offlo«n.

Vernon—Mayor Varnell'l Visit. CHICAGO, Fob. 27.— May or Varnell, of Mti Veruon, Ills., was tn this city Saturday to; present the needs of his community to the: citizens here. He drew a distressing picture, ot the rendition of the town, and said that If $100,000 was not ssnt there at once the suffering would be terrible. It was, In fact,* terrible now. The needs comprise every-! thing that enters Into the construction of a town—building material of all kinds.: Besides that, clothing and provisions were indispensable, as many of the unfortunates had lost everything they had. Ho gave instances: Capt. & T. Btrattoo, a man; 73 years old, bad become absolutely penniless, losing the accumulations of a lifetime— $25,000; R E. Ryan, merchant, Is now a beggar, losing $20,0(K); Dr. A. C. Johnson, had started to California a rich man, was called back by a telegrara,and now has not a dollar. '. Poor people who had homes costing from $200 to $300 are living In the streets, their bonus being kindling wood, and that even swept away. Hr. Varnell wants to give the latter olass $150 and $3)0 respectively, to rebuild with.; The people are doing their best, They went to work bravely when they got over the dated eondltion'in which the terrible calam-: ity left them, but outsido help is abso- 1 lutely necessary; and It must b* prompt and geuerous. Mr. Varnell was evidently disappointed with the way Chicago was moving In the matter. He expected $50,i 000 at least from a city that would be very much did -rout from what it Is if the nation, bad been as niggardly ID Its time of need aa Chicago Is proving Itself now, with barely $10,000 to give to the relief of suffering Mt. Vcrnon. He did .not put bis feelings into words, but went home with a heavy, heart Bald be: "Only think of It—$1,000,000 In property destroyed, wiped out! How can w» be restored within ourselvesl It can not be done except by outside help. The county Is injured by loss of property; the school district is inv poreriahed. . The city has no money and will get no taxes for 1887—no, not enough to bury the dead. Our horses, cow» and even toe, dogs were killed by the storm. Everybody has been more or less Injured, and those who have anything left are dividing' with those who have nothing." What? Cared sroonj clhen tha following.
