Is this the quote you are referring to? I see no evidence in the text of the quote you used......
"There are some would say it was war," said McMurdo, "a war of two classes with all in, so that each struck as best it could."
The Valley of Fear
he says that this war will tell what the scowers are up to?he wants to knows the real face of the scowers and discover it
McMurdo means that it was a fight between the lower and the higher class. It signifies that good is good and the bad is bad.
