In this telegram, Kansas Governor John Martin asks Missouri Governor John Marmaduke to join him in being a mediator in ending the railroad strike. In February 1885, railroad shop workers walked off the job because of a cut in pay and reduced hours of work. Governor Martin was able to negotiate a settlement to the strike but problems continued throughout Kansas, Missouri, and Texas.
