(SPECIAL TO TBI XTTXIKO WORLD.)
Philadelphia, Not. 14. Friouds of the
striking minors of tho Lehigh coal fields yes
terday decided to employ tho boycott as a
J weapon against the leading corporations and
firms in the Lehigh region -whom they regard
as the most dangerous adversaries in the
While the output of coal shlppod by the
Lehigh operators has heretofore been made
the objeot of the boycott, the measure will
from now on be directed against tho opera
' tors themselves and their business interests.
Yostprdny afternoon a secrot mooting of
leaders in railroad employees' organizations
was held down-town and at thiB mooting the
foregoing plan of action was adopted. There
Vere thirty-five persons presont, representa
tives of Pennsylvania Itailroad Employees'
District Assembly 313 1 Heading Railroad Em
ployees' Convention and employees of tho
Lehigh Valley Itailroad, with a number of
f representative, miners. The situation of the
V ttriko was discussed in detail and numerous
I schemes were advanced that were calculated
to aid the striking miners. The determina
tion to boycott tho Lehigh operators, how
ever, was the feature of the meeting and the
discussion that led to it ocoupied the greater
part of their time.
Rather than allow their organization to be
crushed, therefore, it was determined yester
day by the leaders in the conference to insti
tute a boycott on tho Lehigh Goal and
Navigation Company, tho Lehigh Valley
Railroad, A. Pardee. & Sons and Eckley 13.
Core & Co.
In this stop the Knights beliove thoy will
be aided by the leading business men of the
entire Lehigh region, and it is proposed that
immediate steps be taken to enforce the
boycott in Mahanoy City, Shenandoah, Potts
villo, Centralia, Ashland and in other towns
along tho line of tho Lehigh Valley road.
The business men and small merchants are
already organized in these and other
towns for tho purpose of contributing
moral and financial aid to tho
support of the miners, and these business
men will be asked to rofuso to patronize the
highways or products of the interdicted
roads and corporations. And if merchants,
for lnitanco, should patronize tho Lehigh
Valley road in tho transportation of their
goods the Knights in tho various towns will
refuse to deal with them. As a consequenoe
the merchants and business men will be ex
pected to withdraw their trafflo from the
Lehigh Valley rood. Tho boycott will be in
stituted, it is said, within tho coming week.
j Extensive arrangements havo been made
I for the benefit entertainment which will be
given in tho Academy of Muslo on Nov, 20 in
aid of tho Lehigh minors. Special trains
will brine delegations of Knights from ail
over the Rending Railroad, and at the close
of the performance, which will bo " Legar
dere ; or, the Hunchback of Paris," a pro
cession will bo formed of the visiting
Knights, who will be escorted to tho railroad
I station by several bands of music.

TODD PUT ON MS DEFENSE.
n Claim Ills (Shop DlOcra from the Stock
Exchange Only In Decree.
In the case of Elliott W. Todd, tho Broad
street bucket-shop keeper, indicted nndor
the gambling act, Judgo Cowing this morning
denied the motion to dlroot the jury to acquit.
He said in his decision that if it should turn
out that the contracts for tho pnrohaso of
stock wore mado as a cover to carry on gamb
ling transactions, and that no stock was
to bo delivorod or received, but the
whole matter to be determined by the fluctua
tions of the market, bets or wagers being
mado simply on the rising or falling of tho
prico of stock, then tho case came within tho
provisions of the codo. Tho Court
of Appeals has held that it has
no right to speculate as to whether this was
the caso or not. There was evidenoa in this
oase to the etToct that a customer had
demandod a delivery of stook, but
was told that Mr. Todd did not
deal in stocks. This evidence was not
denied, and was sufficient under the do
oisions of the Court of Appeals to put Mr.
Todd on his defenso.
Counsellor Preland II. Smith took an excep
tion to tho rulings of tho Court. Then his
assooiate, Luther Emmorson, opened for
Todd by savinon that tho caso ought
not to be entitled, "The People
against Todd." but "The New York Stock
Exchange against Todd." lie then went on
to argue that there was no more to indicate
that the business of Mr. Todd's office was of
n gambling character than that car
ried on in any brokor's office on
tho street. Taking advantage of the
term " bucket shop" as applied to his client's
business he said it was a nappy comparison a
buokatful as to tho great ocean of speculation
of tho Stock Exchange-, but the contents of
the ocean and tho bucket were the same.
Charles H. Garland, Todd's cashier, was
the first witness for the defense. He said
that customers would be accommodated with
stook if they paid and asked for it.
ONE ANTI-POVERTY METHOD.
S. C. W. Irwin Accused of Getting 8180 en
False Preteneee from Henry George.
A special despatch to Tnz 'Would an
nounced to-day that Henry Qeorgo accused
one S. O. W. Irwin of having obtained $125
from him on falso pretenses. At
Mr. Ooorgo's office it was said to
day that Irwin, who came from
Orowfordsvillo, Ind., appliod to Mr. George
for work in tho Standard office, and getting
employment, readily ingratiated himself into
tho good graces of Mr. George and others.
On the plea of having an invalid wife and
being sorely in noed of funds, Irwin obtained
from Mr. George a chook for $120, with the
understanding that ho was to send his
wifo to Boston and refund tho amount
in instalments. Irwin disappeared on Sun
day week and was ntt heard from
again until a few days ago, when a
letter came from aim announcing
that his love for his wife had prompted him
to accompany her, and that he hod obtained
employment in Boston.
A man called at Mr. George's office to-day
to say that Irwin owed him $S for addressing
wrappers which Irwin himself should .have
Tbk Wobld's despatch says that Irwin bor
rowed money and distinguished himself in
other ways at Glens Falls, in this
Stato. Mr. Georgo proposes to post him
all over tho United States and Canada. Irwin
is rather stout, smooth-faced, with brown
hair and eyes, and of medium height. Bis
age is about thirty-five years.

After the close of his address in Steinway

him if it were true that he was going abroad.
" I have recoived from friends of Mr.
George in England and Scotland," Dr. Mo
Glynn replied, " pressing invitations to go to
those- countries and address the people on tho
land tax doctrine, and I contemplate making
the journey in January or February, but
there is nothing definitely sottlod about it
" Will you visit Ireland ?"
" I do not consider it wise to do so in tho
presont state of affairs. I do believe that the
land tax remedy is best for that country, but
its advocacy would be met at tho present time
with a strong opposition on the part of tho
leaders of tho proprietary system, and I think
I could accomplish more among tho people
in England ana Scotland. Mr. Goorge made
but two addresses in Ireland during his
sojourn, and then, I understand, he was
threatened with suppression by some of Mr.
"Then you do not think the proprietary
system is good one for Ireland?"
" It is not. I think that it would be even
worse than the present landlordism. It has
been tried in Belgium, and the people are
worso off to-day than ever. I think I con ac
complish more among tho working olasses in
England and Scotland than I can by going
into Ireland and inviting opposition and a
controversy. I shall not remain away more
than a few weeks if I go abroad as I oxpect."

Byron II. Bird, the druggist who took two
cents' worth of prussio acid in Boom 21G, at
the Grand Union Hotel, last evening, with
suicidal intent, was reported as out of danger
in Bollovuo Hospital tills morning. Ho will

A despatch was rccoivod by Tux Evening)
Would this morning from Foughkoepslo
saying that it is not believed there that Byron
Bird attempted suicide, but feigned it. He
did the same thing about two or three yoars
ago in Dutchess County. His fathor was
lessee of the old Forbes House twenty years
ago. Byron has boen a vory erratic son.
The Widow Bird, mother of Byron, livos
with another son at 239 East Eighty-first
street. She said this morning : " Tho
wholo trouble with Byronwould make along
story. He never before attempted his
life. His father, Milo Bird, kept the
Forbes House, now tho Nelson House,
in Poughkeepsle. I owned tho property, and
at the death of my husband I had an income
of $8,000 a year from my property. But by
a technicality in two mortgages, one hold by
me and one given by me, i lost it all. Byron
became a druggist and ohemiat. He has always
commanded a good salary. Ho saved money
and in 1880, having oome to the conclusion
that he did not lovo his wife, who was his
oousin, Ada Herbert, of Bridgeport, he left
her and the situation which he had held
for nine years with G. O. Hamilton
in Bridgeport. He went to Lake City, Idaho,
and established himself in business. He
finally sold out and went to Gunnison, Col.
In 1883 he sold out there and startod for
homo. In Denver a hackdrlver found
him in a demonted condition and
robbed him of some thousands of dollars. A
draft was loft in his pocket, and this paid the
oxpenses of bringing him home, a doator ac
companying him. He was demented for
somo timo, but was finally pronounced
" Then ho fell in love with another cousin,
and as his first wifo obtained a divorce, ho
beoame her suitor. She was Nellie Arnold,
of Bridgeport. Sho lilted Byron and mar
ried another man. This and my poverty has
undoubtedly temporarily unseated his reason
again, and he has attempted his life Ho has
been employed as a druggiBt in a Brooklyn
store lately and had a good place. Undoubt
edly his financial losses and domestlo or love
troubles have affected his mind."
JOHN BHEEHAN'S SKULL BROKEN.
The Discovery Made Three Days After an
Election Night Fight.
John Heponstal, a bartender in McCoy's
saloon at Seventy-sixth street and Third
avenue-, was taken under arrest to tho
Coroner's office to-day, charged with having
fatally clubbed John Sheehan, a young
coachman of 1729 First avenue.
The trouble oocurred election night, when
there was a large crowd in McCoy's saloon.
Sheehan was there with bis friend, Thomas
Mullane, of 1591 First avenue. A well-known
Republican politician was treating tho boys
and Mullane says that he and Sheehan were
invited to namo their drinks.
They kept on ordering after their host left,
and Heponstal put in a claim for forty .five
cents. Neither Shcohan nor Mullano would
pay, and high words ensued.
Hepenstal, it is alleged, camo from behind
the bar with a club and fiercely attacked tho
men. Both went home with broken heads,
but neither thought he was dangorously hurt.
Sheehan acted in a dazed way all Wednes
day and Thursday, and on Friday night
began to bleed at the ears. Then his wifo
sent for a physician. Dr. H. L. Gibson
treated the patient for two days
and lost evening informed Coroner
Eidman that Sheehan bad received
a fracture of tho base of tho skull and was
likely to die. The Corouer tried to take
Sheelian's ante-mortem statement early this
morning, but the man was unconscious.
Hepenstal was committed to the Tombs,
ne says that Sheehan and Mullano were
drunk and abusive and throw a glass at nim
whed ho asked for payment for tho drink.
He admits having a stick in his hand, but
says that Sheehan got his injuries by fulling
against the edge of the bar.

Bin Fbinoibco, Nov. 14. The MoDonald
case has taken an unexpected turn.
It will bo recalled that Clara Belle MoDon
ald attempted to shoot her father-iu.law, Dr.
It. H. MoDonald, in Baldwin's Hotel, Oct.
21. She Is the defendant in a divorce suit in
which her husband acouBos hor of too great
intimaoy with Seneca Augustus Swain, a
sporting man with whom sho becaiao infatu
ated. On Friday the was arrestod on fivo
charges of forgery on complaint of Sonator
Stanford, through au agont, who accusos her
of selling to Mr. Stanford for $10,000 Botno
Central Pacific stock to which the indorse
ment was forged. In default of $15,000 ball
sho and her littlo girl wero locked up.
The littlo girl was taken seriously ill yester
day in prison. The poor ohild lay moaning
and imploring her mother to take her from
tho dark, damp cellar, known as the city
prison. Filially tho Chief of Police con
sented that mother and child should take a
drive and afterward on tho certificate of a
physician allowed Clara Belle to go homo
and stay under surveillance. The baby got
worse as tho carriage neared tho homo and
the mother also became qulto ill. The
Doctor says sho was taken with successive
hciuhorrages which have lnorcasod in violence-,
and her condition is now critical.
Last evening Swain, her paramour, who is
supposed to have been the, real forger of hor
certificates left suddenly for Council Bluffs
carrying several trunks.
The police have tho theory that Clara
Belle would have ioined him in his flight if
it had been possible. Undoubtedly she will
obtain boll to-day.
LABOR LEADERS AT ODDS.

The speech of Dr. McGlynn at the Anil

organized labor leaders to such an extent
that a split betweon tho Antl-Povertyltea and

ents is imminont.
A meeting of the County General Commit

Thursday ovening next in Clarendon Hall,
when tho matter will bo disaussod and a

The Georgo men attributo tho blame for
the great foiling off in their vote partly to
the leaders of tho Knights of Labor. They
acenso thorn of using their positions
as officers of District and Local
Assemblies to influence the labor
vote in behalf of tho Doinocraay in general
and Col. Fellows in particular. T. B. Mo

injured in tho scrimmage.
Tho'only probably fatal case, so far as re

Primarily One or Honor Delnreon Gen. 'fl

One Of the Opinion That Connect Hfaeuld ,JH
lie Allowed to Appear fur the Defense. 'fH
Judge llarrett gave a decision to-day In wU
Col. Edwnrd Gebhard's suit to enjoin' the ill
New York Club from expelling him. The 'J3B
permanent injunction is denied and the tern- Sfl
porary stuy dissolved with costs. SjH
In his decision, Judge llarrett says : J
1 he injunction Is asked upon an Inaccurate con- js9
ccptlon of the real dltput 3 between the pUlntlff aud VaM
the club. It Is not a question of the character or "
propriety of thu plalaitlTa bill, but one of honor Jf9
between gt-ntleincn. The charge, In substance. Is -Vfl
that the plaintiff having obtained a favorable audit fl
of his ai'couuta upon a distinct promise that he '
would eutseqnemlv recast It so aa to tnttt tfl
the appro al ot ths Hoard, has violated his pledge,
refusal cither to recast the bill or to restore ths iSM
orlrlnal status, and haa retained the money, even MB
after trie iioord'a reclaiton of the audit. -WH
It Is also charged that tMs repudiation of an hon- V?M
orablc understanding: wai anxravated by evasion -19
with regard to the pledge Itself and by the recall, yJM
In nn unseemly munncf, of a letter upon the sub- -'-
Ject addrctad by the plaintiff to the president of the AS
club. ItaurelynecdanoexteudcddUcuaslontopoInt 3-KHn
oat that trie fane raised by the plaintiff's earnest
deulal of these charuca is an appropriate on to be joa!
beard by the club Itself under Its constitution ahd .,-fl
these are questions of honor between gentle- il
men, with which the courts have primarily nothing 4H
to do. Now, aurely the board uuy lawfully say 'Vfli
that It considers the conduct of the pliintltf, ,9H
a-ould the charges be proved, as dangerous to -ivU
the welfare of the club. It certainly iyH
would be dangerous to the character of thy Sato- 1H
elation otaentleruea to have among them a map- iS
ber who has secured money, however honestly -!
earned by dishonorable meana. and who retains ft 3M
even legally, by discrediting a fellow member's
word and repudiating his ow n. 'ASM
A Court or Equity will undoubtedly see to It that M
the accused member has a fair hearing and that 'JM
tne eluti proceeds In accordance with ths YMt
pnnclplea of natural Justice. What the plaintiff via
aaka la that there shall be no hear fag at ail. and , wM
that he snail retain his membership ontned, by :Sm
mere force of our Injunction. 9I
It will not do to say that because the original $7lM
dispute was with tne club Itself, the Board ot
Directors Is incompetent to try a question of honor H
and veracity gruwtmr out or that dispute. S
Nor can the plaintiff disqualify his conitltu- JXS
tlonal Judaea by sratuiloualy or without ")
specific proof assailing tlielr Impartiality. It Is una vU
ciubirlbunal and this alone that he contracted "SB
for upon questions of club discipline When he hfl
alined tho constitution. Hut the plaintiff's charges Jaal
aro fully met by the opposing papers. Further,

sufficient reasons for his ehaiieage are "$Bl

remains the i eaison can subsequently be weighed
when the Conrt busked to reinstate, Upon the '&BJ
claim that the ordinary principles of natural Juatlco J!mu
have been violated. The jurors provided tbr , i?M

So as to the denial ot counsel, the President Dad Vmm
ao more authority In this matter than aay other "Bjl
member of the board, , The plaintiff, If he desired i'-ima
toral'e th's point effectually, should hive ap- 'Vfli

still do so. If It la denied, lhe question will then- ?,?
be properly tip for decision. I may say, however, )i1U
that my Impression favors the plaintiff's con- vJSl
rentlou in thla regard, anil I should deeply regret -.O
to learn that the assistance ot coanael nad been iftaai

When Col. Qcbhard obtained ah injunction M
restraining thu New York Club from expel- ' 9
lingghini, one of his principal charges was ?l
that a member of the Governing Committee Km
was opposed to him because ho had caught SH
him cheating at cards. In his complaint he JSm
Charged Nut Whitman with the offense. Mr. Cm
Whitman, who is a reputable business mart M
of the linn of Iiesser, Whitman & Co., &M
became very much incensed at the , t?al
