New York, Aug. 11. "The strike
on the New York Central ia bound to
be a3 important in tbo political as in
the business "world," said "Win. Price,
ono of the most prominent labor
leaders in the city, to-night.
"Chauncey M. Depew -will mako him
self president or ruin all the chances of
his ever getting the nomination by
his action in this matter. It is be
lieved among all labor men that
Depew knew the strike was coming,
and for that reason fled to Europe,
knowing that while there political in
fluence could not bo brought to bear
upon him, which would force him into
conciliating with the Knights."
"What then should ho do under the
circumstances ? "
"He should either come home at
once and show Vanderbilt that his in
terest is to yield to these men, which
would simply prove these men were
discharged without cause, other than
they are members of the Knights. Mr.
Depew, failing in being able to make
Vanderbilt yield, should resign his po
sition as president If he settles the
strike the laboring men all over the
country would feel most kindly to
him. If he should make a martyr of
himself by resigning, they would wor
ship him, and no power on earth could
keep him from being nominated for
the presidency and probably being
Are Knights so powerful as to do
"Their membership is over 350,000,
and they are politically allied on the
closest terms with the Farmers' Alli
ance, which is strong in very many
states, where Depew, because of his
railroad connections, is weak. If
Depew does nothing but talk in this
matter he will be killed deader than
Hector as to all political ambitions."

Special to The AstoeiaxI
NewYoek, Aug. 1L All through
the night and early this morning it
looked as though the strike on the N.
Y. Central was slowly but surely pe
tering out, nevertheless, both parties,
so far as words went, at all events are
as stubborn as ever.
The Buffalo express and newspaper
train moved out on time at 5 a. m., and
before 7 o'clock two trains had been
sent out over the Harlem division.
Soon after the announcement was
made that all trains would be run to
day. Police arrangements remain the
same as yesterday, except the men are
told not to leave their posts an instant.
Vice-president Webb contradicted
the statement made hist evening that
the firemen had struck. He addod
that arrangements were being per
fected for moving freight to-day. The
first freight which has moved since
the strike, left yesterday for Albany at
1) a. 11. No opposition was made by
the strikers, sis a heavy guard of police
was on hand.
The G3ih street yard from which
the first shipment of freight was
made, is the most important in the
city. A freight train passed Spnyten
Duyvil at 10:30, and everything to that
point was all right At 11 o'clock
everything was in good shape at the
Grand Central depot. There is no
exci'emenl around the depot except

Oklahoma City, Aug. 1L The peo
ple of Oklahoma are preparing an
appeal to congress for relief from
famine. The country has not pro
duced sufficient food to keep people
from starvation, and in connection
with this fact citizens have been there
nearly two years without being able
to raise anything to live on. They
went in late the first season and barely
existed through the winter. Then
when they expected to make a crop
this year they were met with one of
the worst draughts ever known in this
country- Vegetation throughout the
whole territory was burned and there
was no possible show of even raising
fodder for stock. The people ex
hausted all their meanB and arc now
compelled to live on charity. The na
tion at largo are absolutely without
means and cannot get away. Tho
horrors of the situation cannot bo ap
preciated except by observation.
Whole families are on tho verge of
starvation. Some lived on what they
could glean from fields in the shape of
dried immature corn. Others were
compelled to kill domestic animals to
keep their families alive.

the young ones, aro developing their
ability and skill as swimmer?. Wo

more pupils than we had at this time
last year, and many of them aro turn

to find a timid young woman, or ono

thusiastic as thoy are vigorous, and
they quickly take to all the various
styles of swimming and floating. Yrou
must remember that'a girl has, in pro
portion to her size, a larger expanse of
chest than a man, which means in her
cess an increased buoyant capacity.
They have come to know this, which
perhaps accounts for their growing
fearlessness in the water. Just teach
a courageous girl tho proper motion of
tho arms and legs and you have in her
tho making of a good swimmer.

Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 11. Advices
have been received from South Al
berta, Northwest territory, to the ef
fect that the Mormons who came into
that country from Utah are corrupt
ing the Indians with their doctrines.
The government tried to impress on
the Indians the necessity of monog
amy and refused them supplies for
more than one wife, but the Mormons
aro teaching them many so-called ad
vantages in the multiplicity of wivesT
Thero is every indication that the
Mormon evil in the west is liable to
grow into a serious difficulty.

Wood as a Source of Unman Food.
In an address at Heidelberg by
Victor Meyer, it is announced ''that
Ave may reasonably hope that chem
istry will teach us to make the fibre of
wood a source ot human food." What
an enormous stock of food, then, will
bo found, if this becomes possible, in
tho woods of our forests or even in
grass and straw! Tho fibre of wood
consists essentially of cellnlin. Can
this be made to change into starch?
Staich has exactly the same percentage
composition, but, as every one knows,
it diners very much in it3 properties,
and tho natures of its molecule is
probably much more complex. Cel
lnlin is of little or no dietetic value,
and it is not altered, like starch, in
boiling water. It readily gives
glucose when treated with strong
snlphuric acid, as is easily shown
when cotton wool, which is practically
pure cellnlin, is merely immersed in it
Starch give3 the samo product when
boiled with weak acid. The author
further quotes tho researches of
Hellreigel, which go to show beyond
dispute that certain plants transform
atmospheric nitrogen into albumen,
and that this process can bo improved
by suitable treatment The produc
tion, therefore, of starch from cellnlin,
together with the enforced increase o
albumen in plants would, he adds, in
reality signify the abolition of the
bread question. It must be borne in
mind, however, that theory, fascinat
ing and promising though it may be,
is not alwaj s capable of being followed,
