The Cabinet Discusses the Strike

This brief article from the July 30, 1877 issue of the Pittsburgh Daily Post notes the Cabinet's assurance of the end of the strike, with no further interference on railroad lines.



In Washington all is quiet as usual. The Cabinet session to-day was short, and all the advices received indicate a progressive improvement in the disturbed localities. It can be said with certainty that the Government is co-operating with the State authorities for the suppression of disturbance and for the prevention of lawless interference, and that there is a firm determination that traffic shall be resumed on all the roads, and that there shall be no further interference with the regular running of passenger and freight trains.
