Kkw Yohk, Aug. 10. The complete paralysis of all traffic on the New York Central B. B. eaneed by the Knights of Labor when they struck their first blow Friday night led them to believe that they conld maintain the stoppage of business; on the roads of the company. This they have not succeeded in doing, and It is evident that a general feeling of disappointment prevails among the strikers, though the will not admit this. They placed strong reliance upon the assistance of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers who, according to many of the Knights, were to have taken a hand In the fight last night. A prominent member of the Brotherhood said to-day that the locomotive engineers were not to be In this strike. It was not their fight, bat, of course, he added, should they be ordered out they would go. He did not think such an order would be given. To-day the regular schedule passenger rer-vioe of the Hudson Biver 4b N. T. Central and Harlem Boads was resumed, the only change being the consolidation of certain outgoing western trains. The Southwestern Limited and Chicago Limited were consolidated and left on the Bouthweetern's time at 10:20 a.m. The North Shore Vestibule Limited, which was to have left at 4:50 p. m., was consolidated with the fast Western express and left at 6 p. m. All other trains left on schedule time and local trains took passengers up the road as usual. The tie-up on the West Shots Boad, which was inaugurated last night, did not e fleet passenger traffic. The through Boston trains on the New Haven line left as usual. Police Captain Hollvaln, who Is on duty at the Grand Central depot, reported every thing exceedingly quiet. Not an arrest bad- been made and none of the strikers had been seen - around the depot or along the line the road, though all necessary precautions are taken to nip any demonstration in the bud.'' He said, "I dont anticipate any trouble. It looks very much to me as if the whole thing would be over by Tuesday morning." John J. Holland, a member of the Executive Board of the Knights to-day said he had nothing to impart and was very uneoom-munioative. During the afternoon General Manager TouceyAsslstant Manager Thomas Voothees, John H. Fi e, B. A. Loomls, J. J. Loftus, Henry Douglass and John 8. Green, the latter of whom are' prominent freight ofileialB of the New York Central B. It.. held a conference In the office of the Thiid Vice President Webb. At its conclusion it was announced that it had been decided to dispatch to-morrow all freight trains to their various destinations. The following notice was posted in a conspicuous place in the vicinity of the depot: "Persons seeklngemployment on the New York Central and Hudeon Blver Boad will please make application at the office of the Wagner Palace Car Company." It was eegned by Theo. Voorhees The result was that applications were received by the score. By one of the officials it was said 150 men had been taken on. i He also declared that ail the men engaged were experienced railroad men. Voorhees said that he had received a number of applications from railroad men living around New York, among whom were some employed on the elevated roads, others from Pittsburg, and from men employed in tne Erie yards. Some even came from as far west as Chicago. The company had not engaged them, as they found they could obtain all they required in this city. Tie PreaMeat Waa-b'a Vltfamtam. Late in the afternoon the following cirou'ar was Issued by Third Vice President Webb and was the result of the long deliberations of the conference held by the road's officials: "The position of the company is this: We shall select our own men, and we do not propose that they will be designated by tne knights of Labor or Its committees. When men are dismissed we shall get rid of the inefficient, the most vicious and those least in accord with our interests. When m omotions are to be made we will fnot be bound by the seniority rules promul gated by tne Knignts or juarjor. a. aue consideration will at wavs be given to length of service, but the first and most important rule will be the qualifications of the men for the place. If our men have grievances the proper officers will be willing to grant hearing and see that consideration is given, but we will not allow outsiders to lnteifere between employer and employs. For this reason alone I refused to allow Mr. Holland to discuss any differences alleged to exist between the company and its men and not lor the reason, as stated, that we objoos to our employes being members of labor organizations. These are my views and I am satined ttiat they are concurred In an approved every official of the company, by Its board of directors and by the gentlemen who are most Interested in Its securities. Tne strike is ill advised, cannot succeed and we will put it down and maintain the position we r ave taken." Master Workman Lee, of the Strikers District Assembly, arrived from Albany at noon to-day and attended a meeting of the Knights this afternoon. More than 3.0C0 were present. I se was most enthusiastically received. Reports were received from various local assemblies' along the line of be road. What they were could not be learned. L ae this afternoon orders were . Issued to the polioe made necessary by the attempt to run freight trains, which will be made tomorrow. Trouble Is yet anticipated, but Acting Supt. Byrnes considered precautionary measure shou'd be taken. As the West Shore depot and about the yards atWee-nawken everything during the day was quiet. The road is not.ia-Jy dtseoma 4ed by the absence of the nity switchmen, who went out on Saturday night. The fact Is that of the 100 men employed about the yard and depot tu; one-half were subject to the Knighte' truer. All pawsangertratna were dispatched ,each about half an hour behind the schedule time. Incoming trains were delayed abut the same time. TWs was caused by delay in s itching. None ot the strikers were to be seen in tne vicinity. Tee yards were understood to be well picketed by the strikers to dissuade new men from making application fox work. , CkMtai SnUuaatoMs. Nxw Yoax Aug. 10. J. J. Hollaed and Secretary Hayes, of. the Executive Board, Knights of Labor, left to-night for Detroit, Before their departure they ordered all the firemen on all the Vacderbilt roads here to quit work. At this nour the engines axe uwortea at the Grand Central Depot. Tie Chicago and North Shore limited due i t Grand Central depot at 4 p. m. was tied up by (titters at DeWltt, N. Y., and is not expected Uli 7 o'ctook to-mecrow morning. There is great trouble at DeWltt, and toe miiitift has been called out. The employ on the train that stopped at DeWltt took out and destroyed coupling pins and threatenei violence to any man who might go to work. Secretary Hayes of the Knights of Labor called on Vice President Webb this evening and left a letter from Father Doucey, favoring arbitration. Webb declined to treat with Hayes and said there was nothing to arbl-brate and the company would not take back the dlecharged men under any circumstances. District Master Workman Lee said that he arrived from Albany for the pHrpose of taking charge of affairs and will make his headquarters at the Grand Union Hotel, i He was questioned about the rumored strike on the New Jersey roads and said that he had not ordered It. He would neither affirm or deny anything relative to the rumor at 10 o'clock. I. J. Holland and Secretary' Hayes announced that affairs had taken such shape that they would not start for Detroit at present. i No Troabie an the PeanaylTanla or Erie : Reads. ; Jkbset City, Aug. 10. No trouble Is ex-, pec ted at the Pennsylvania or Erie depots. Neither company expects the strike to extend to its road. A meeting of the Knights of Labor employed on the New Jersey Central was held last night and they decided to strike in the event of their being asked to handle new xorx uentrai freight. Grand Master Sera-eat will eat Caaae East. Tebba Haute, Aug? 10. Grand Master Sergent of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen received many telegrams from the New York Central strikers to-day asking him to come East, but he declined to take official action in regard to the strike, saying that the board was not consulted In Its conception and was not called upon to use its usuai means oi settling Rrievances witn ran rt ad companies.

About 35 men, including assistant Daggagemasters, en gineers, bra k era en, switchmen, yardmen and warehousemen, went out to-day. Twa freight trains were delayed two hours this afternoon for want of switchmen at certain points, but were let out by station agent Weien. lie minks he can command help enough to avoid any delay to through trains. but there is likely to be some Interruption of local freight business.

The Delaware & Hudson has refused to handle live stock detained at West Albany. ; What Pawderly Says. , ScKAXTOit, Aug. 10 "I have received no word whatever from the seat of the strike on the Vanderbilt system," said General Master Workman Powderly to a reporter this evtn-ing. "Asl eald befoie It Is purely in the hands of the local district until they ask for assistance. Then the Executive Board will meet In Detroit on Wednesday, necessitating my leaving for that place to-morrow evening. I presume that tbe strike will then be discussed and perhaps we will be asked to take some action. , TUB WELH RAILWAY STRIKE. It la Still Oa Fally 175,000 Bfea Affected Caaae af the Traahle. London, Aur. 10. The strike of the railroad men cf South Wales is still on and is Lone of the largest in the history of Princi pality. Fully 175,000 men are Involved. It ts said that if their demands are not soon complied with tbe Sailor's Union will give orders that not a pound of South Wales ,reight shall be handled by the London steamship lines. The following terms of service agreed upon by the Taff Vale, Bbymnsy, Bute Docks and Barry Dock and Railway Companies July 26, is the chief bone of contention: Time Trainmen (except for ballasting and shunting) will be paid for ordinary time at the rare of 10 hours per day, time to be taken when they come on duty (by order) and when they leave duty, according to the lnstauc-tlons of eaibh foreman respectively. Overtime Overtime to be reckoned as the excess over 60 hours per week of six days, and paid for at the rate of time and a quarter. Time off duty So far as the necessity of of the service will permit, nine hours at least oft duty to be arranged for between each day's working. ! ' '. Ballastit g and h"ring Time to be at the rate ot 13 hours per day, or 72 hoar per week of six days, but 1 hours to be allowed during each day for meals, or if not allowed the traffir inspector to Istue a ticket for same. In which ease the time will be paid for at overtime rate. Sunday time Sunday duty as all include only trains ordered out between 12 midnight Saturday and 13 midnight Sunday, to be paid for at time and a half. : ' ' . ! Tbe men having adopted the national manifesto, which was pot forward by the Amalgamated Society, are unwilling to relax the'r efforts towards securing its more important provisoes. The requisition which they are not willing to withdraw is that ten hours snail constitute a working day and eight hours a day's overtime; that each day ahaU stand by itsetf and that day shall be guaranteed a week's warn. The society's platform contained the important ptank that overtime, whenever worked, should be paid as snefc, and never counted in to make up the requisite number of hour at the end of tbe weak. - - " .

Taatparaaea Literature la the Seheala The Officers. I PrrTSBCBO, Aug. r10. The National Con vention of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America just closed at Pittsburg was marked by an incident that indicates the progress which the anti-saloon sentiment is making among the members of that organization. Quite abreezawas raised over the report of Bev. M. M. Sheedy, first vice presided of the union. Father Bheedv said that as the priests were kept btsy attending to various other duties they could not devote much attention to advancing the interests of the union. He recommend the appointment ot salaried organizers. for each district and a general lecturer for the whole union. Father McTigue of Pittsburg objected vigorously to the report and was 'called to order by the chairman. A stormy scene ensued, in which Father McTigue was brought to order a second time, after which J. P. Bennesy of Boston secured the floor. He moved that the Executive Committee be instructed to communicate with Catholic booksellers asking that at least five lessons on the evils of alcohol be printed In their school books. The debate on this motion was very warm, nearly every delegate In the hall' joining the discussion. Father McTigue again secured the floor and denounced the motion. He said that it was useless and that such Ideas could never be realised. Tbe church never sanctioned the movement and to force children to be total abstainers would Injure the cause. A glass of wine or beer, he said, would injure no one. This etatement wss greeted with groans and hisses, v. J. jicuartny oi Drifton sprang to his feet and made an eloquent speech, closing with an Intimation that heretofore the clergy bad been loth to assist the laymen in the fltrht against rum. This angered Father McTigue, who denounced the statement as an insult to tne ciergy oi tne united states. The excitement was Intense for- a while, and was only allayed when Father Conaty ot Worcester announced that the committee would report on Fenneasey's resolution at the afternoon session. When tbe matter came up In the afternoon Father McTigue again oreated an uproar by attacking the report, and asserting that the saloon could not, must not go. Father Sheedy demanded that Father McTigue withdraw his remarks, which that gentleman refused to do, although he stood alone in opposition to tbe resolution. Tbe convention finally endorsed Father Sheedy 's report, with the recommendations regarldng tbe school books, and Father McTigue left the hall in a pout. The resolutions can upon saloon keepers to abandon tbe liquor, business, and urge legislation in all the States to stop the traffic, urge tbe clergy to organ lze total abstinence societies oi boys and gins, recommend the extension of the women's societies, and noticing the objence of total abstinence literature In Catholic school readers, recommend that the Catholic Board of Government communicate with Catholic publishers and urge them to select for publi cation therein some of the classic utterances ot the leaders of the total abstinence movement end thus familiarize tbe youth with the best thought of the day on the subject of Catholic totalabstinence. The following officers were chosen for the ensuing year: Pi est dent, Bishop Cotter; vice presidents, Bev. M. M. Sheedy, ot Pit i -burg, and W. A. Manning, of Cleveland; treasurer, ttev. w. ueaianan, oi tJieveiana; secretary, iJ. A. noian, i r niiaoeipnia. MANY MEMBERS ABSENT. Little er mm Baelaeae la the Heaae Uattl tie Iatter Part af the Week. Washington, Aug. 10. Owing to the fact that many members nave gone to uosiou to attend the Grand Army encampment It is probable that 11 tile, or no business will be transacted in the House before tbe latter part of the week. The proceedings will pro bably be confined to action upon the confer ence reports upon the Fortification and Sundry Civil Appropriation bills, possibly interspersed with a recess for a day or more. In the Senate the Tarlfl bill will be discussed until Friday, when It is expected, that the Blver and Harbor bill will be taken up. But this is not altogether certain, as several Senators are opposed to the Tariff bill being displaced by any Mil. The discussion of the Tariff bill will probably be interrupted by the present action of tbe conference reports on tne Sundry Civil Appropriation bill and Land Grand Forfeiture bilL INTERNATIONAL.

THE DISTINGUISHED POET AND JOURNALIST VE AD. A SUDDEN ENDING Ta a Pielareaqaa Career An Oier Jeae af Chl.ral Takea for IaaentBta the Sap-peaed Caaae Brief Sketch mt Bla LUa. Boston, July 10. John Boyle O'Bellly, the poet and editor of the Boston Pilot, died this afternoon at Hull. His death is supposed to have been caused by an overdose ot chloral taken for Insomnia. I The career of John Boyle O'Bellly. poet. patriot and llterateur, was one of the mon picturesque oi moaern times, ills lire iur-nlshes a fitting theme -for the pen of a romancer and his death at what might be called the threshold of a brilliant career will be deeply deplored by every admirer of genius. i . Horn in Ireland about forty yeors ago, ne early studied the tear stained hlttory of that unhappy country and imbibed the lessons of patriotism taught by the men who fought and died for her freedom. He grew up an ardent patriot and soon became involved in the Fenian uprising of '67. For tbis he was arrested and sentenced to death. His sentence was afterward commuted to transportation for life and he was sent to the prisons of Australia. After years of Intense suffering he effected, his escape and came to America. ' An escaped felon, in the eyes of the English law, his brilliant attainments soon secured fori him In this country an honored place among men of letters. His knowledge of the antipodes prompted that rare collection of melodies, "Songs of the Southern Seas," which stamped him as a poet oi no mean i order, utner poems 101-lowed,eome of them of unusual merit, until at last he secured entrance Into the best periodicals of the day. A few years ago he purchased tbe -Boston Pilot from Patrick Donohue, and since that time has labored hard and succeeded, too. in making it one: of tbe best papers of Its una in tne united states. He was an enthusiastic canoeist and lover of athletic sports. his trip years down the Buequthwna a few ago and his . lecture at Music Hall a short time afterwards being still fresh in the memory of our readers. Mr. O'Bellly was a ripe scholar, a polished Ktntleman and a true patriot, and hli untimely dea'h creates a void among American' journalists tnat cannot easily oe nued.j SEIKINO ORIGINAL, PACKAGES, i BUCKALRW DEFEATED.
