bits and only one base on balls. Ilusle also fielded
h!a position beautifully, having seven assists in
all llavls and Van Ualtren each made four
safe hits, while Doyle and Tlernan also did welt

NgwponT. Aug. 21,-Tho third day of the
national championship tennis tournament wn
bad for the favorites at the start, l'nrkcr find
Hovcy being bowled over In rapid succession.
llobart, Stevens, Sands, and Chaco pullctl
through without difficulty. Heed and Thomson
were the other victors, but no one expects them
to cnt any figure In the fight, as they on e their
chances for the seml-flnsls to Parker' careless
ness. Parker waa the first victim, a stocky black
haired youngster named Thomson completely
tiring him out and winning In five sets. For
some reason or other Parker wa In poor con
dition and played like a man In the last stage
of spring fever. Carelessness lost tho first set.
and when Parker at last realized that ho had
caught a tartar, Thomson was pin) lug with
skill and confidence, doing brilliant work at the
net. Thomson's lobbing was capital, and ho had
everything his way toward tho end, Parker
being apparently unable to run after the balls.
While this match wa being played tho cham
pionship court wa walled In by excited tennis
cranks, who cllmbtd over each other to get a
view of the court on which Itovey and (lontl
body were fighting out tho great battle of tho
morning. Hotcy was a big tn orlto, as rumor
had It that tho Irishman was out of condition.
Uoodbody, however, beat the Dostonlan In n
splendid five-set match. Ilotoy failed to
play tils dashing net game, perhaiwi from
ovcrcautlon, perhaps because the foreigner was
shooting ball after hall along the side line with
an accuracy fatal to any but the liveliest kind
of network. Tho opening set wa compara
tively easy fur Hovcy, as Goodbodr failed to
place with hi wonted exactness. IIoty was
cautious throughout, and placd well back to
first, though when his lead wa well istabllstiiii
ho showed some of the beautiful ollcj I tig hlch
has placed him high In the tennis world. After
23 had been called ho ran out tho set.
The Irishman throw oft some of his an.
parent Indifference, and banged tho ball hard In
the next set, taking two love game to lit gin
with. Hovcy was mlslng easy kills, nnd Uood
body established n good lead of .11, Ihe re
mainder of tho set wa blttvrl) fought, ncnrli
all the games being deuce. Uoodbody returned
everything that could lio reached, and Hint
meant nearly every ball. Howy was kept
back by the Irishman's plays for tho
back-hand corner, and waa forced to lob
time and again. The curious spectacle was seen
of a net player forced way behind the hose lino
and the base-line plnjer dancing around the net.
Ooodbod) 's enormous stretching powers cnAblcd
him to volley Hovey's best shots, and, though
the American got In some passes nnd circus
half nlleys that brought down the gallery,
Uoodbody won, II 4.
The next set was a virtual walkner for Uood
body. Ho ey either volleyed Into the net or was
passed clean after chasing the ball vigorously
from corner to coriur. Only one gnme was
scored for the IlostonlAn. With two set to one
against him Hovey had to brace, and did it
in a way that drew forth cheer after cheer
from the grand stand. Ileautlful cross
court volleys by Hovey were In order, and
the Ilostonlan's points were won by the
cleanest kind of placing. Homcthlng of Hot cy's
old-time flashes of brilliancy wan seen, nnd,
though Uoodbody did not let up for a minute,
he was clearly outplayed. Hoey gut In a few
line lobs, and one rally that put the spectators on
tiptoe went to the Yankee by a pretty pass after
some bard drive at short range had lieen well
handled by both players. The set went to Hovey,
Hovey's supporters were doomed to disappoint
ment, as Uoodbody made a wonderful finish for
a player of Blight phyalaup. and, though Hovcy
waa volleying well, the Irishman kept hitting
the lines and scoring aco after aco. when hard
pressed by Hovey, wonderful hnck-hand lobs
pulled him out, and at every chance the Irish
man took a position at tho net from which he
was seldom dislodged. Hove) kept tho crowd
applauding by a gallant stand when theday wa
lost, but he weakened at last, an out and a shot
into the net making Uoodbody tho w Innur of
Larned hail the closest kind of a shave with O
NeeL The Westerner is the hardest man to
fas that has been seen hereabout In a long
Ime, and Larncd's tactics of pounding the ball
at his opponent panned out so poorly that. In
stead of tho expected three straight, the score
was a tie up to the sixth game of tho fifth set.
Larnsd played difficult shots brilliantly and
easy ones badly. A beautiful toss n ould be fol
lowed try an inexcusable smash Into tho crowd.
Neel pegged away silently, and kept Ihe crltlts
on pins and needles until a brilliant streak gate
Lamed the lead in the lost set. Kven then Neel
made some nervy shots, and nearly brought the
score to games all.
Stevens disposed of the once famous V. n.
Hall In hollow style, and Hnhart, after Indulging
Foots with the lead, w on three sets out of four.
Chaco had no opposition to speak of and (.'. K.
Bands kept Deane Miller down to flte games.

Chicago, Aug. 2J. General Manager fit, John
of the Chicago, Hock Island and Paclflu rood ap
peared a a voluntary witness before the Na
tional Labor Commission this morning. Mr. Ht.
John testified that tho Rock Island rcnd hail
13,17 employees. Ho read a serlc of briefs
covering tho atrlko on the Hock Island road
from day to day,
"Our flrst trouble," he ald, "occurred on
June SO, At this time a meeting of a few Hock
Island employees nnd man) outsiders was held
on Blue Island avenue. A motion was passed to
strike. Everybody voted, whether railroad em
ployee or not. This meeting was addressed by
Debs, Howard, and others, nnd It was tho lie
ginning of the strike on our mad. No official
notice was eer given to any officer of tho Hock
Island road that the employees Intended to
strike, and no notice wa eer given tho road to
discontinue hauling Pullman cars."
Manager Ht, John read a list of men, giving
their employment, who were at the Blue island
meeting nnd who voted for a strike, though lint
employed by any nmd. Among theso wero
tailors, plumber, bartenders, and others.
" I'ully two-third of these men were not em
ployce of railroads," said Manager Ht. John.
He related Incidents of tiro strike. He told
how trains were slopped, how engines were re
peatedly cut tiff nnd snitches thrown by men
alleged to lie strikers, and how men who wished
to work were Intimidated nnd forced to stop
work. Tho witness declared that tho local an
thorltlesat Bluo Island wero In sympathy with
tho strikers, and Interfered with the oftltcrs of
the Hock Island mad on several occasion Ho
said the police of Blue Island on soternl occa
sions nrrcsted officers of tho road nnd once tried
to arrest Marshal Arnold himself.
"Deputy United States marshals," continued
Mr. Bt. Jiilin, "a n rule rendtrrd good service
at Bluo Island, bnt It was tllscm ered that twen-ty-sctcn
of them niro striking switchmen,
sworn In by tho order of tho President of tho
American Hallway Union,"
Manager St. John scored the Chicago polite,
and declared the j often stood Idly by anil per
mitted ocrt acts. Ho cited fires hy the score,
nnd declnred that In some cases those w ho tried
to put them out were shot at. New men wero
waylaid on the streets nnd beaten, nnd the rood
on July 8 deemed It inexpedient to send out new
employees, tearing they would lie kllltd. By
July 12 the trouble begun to abate, and by July
IU even thing was quiet.
"The total number of men w ho actually struck
wa A22, the rest being Intimidated," said Mr.
Ht. John. "Tho total numlier reinstated wo
74. About B.OOf) men wero out nltogithcr. All
men have lieen recmplo) cd against whom there
wero no charges."
When asked about tho relations between the
Pullman Company and the Hock Island mad
Mr. St. John ollurcd the Commission the con
tract, but asked that It he ki pi from the general
public. After conferring, the Commission re
fused to take It nn tliCM terms. Tho Hock
Island Company owns a half Interest In all Its
Pullman cars. By the contract tho Hock Island
Is obliged to operate Pullman cars strike or no
Manager St. John fixed the losses of the mm-
8 any during the strike at from $800,000 to $1,
00,000. Including dnmage to propert).
" Wo have had many idle Pullman cars slnco
the closo of the World Fair," sold the w itness,
" and I think this was tho case on all tho roods.
A consequent cessation of car building ensued."
He gave figures to nliow that tho Hock Island
earned only $200,000 during the World's Fair,
and said this did not cmer the cost of the ad
ditional equipment necessary for World's Fair
When asked whether the Hock Island recog
nised the American Hallway Union, Mr. bt.
John said the company had never hail an appli
cation from that body.
Mr. Ht. John said that about 47A men engaged
In the strike hoii applied for work nn the Hock
Island road, and had been Informed the com
pany could not use them. He said the company
f aid tho deputy marshals who protected Hock
stand property. Engineers and firemen were
sworn In as deputy marshals.
"These latter bore the star of the United
Htate T" asked Commissioner Kernan.
"Yes, sir," tho witness replied, and he con
tinued: "I wish to say In regard to a statement
made hy a witness to the effect that thero are
loO.OOO member of the American Hallway
Union, that It is my conviction that 120,000 of
this number do not work for any railroad at all.
nor have they been connected with any rood."
" Is It fair to presumo that a largo proportion
of the riot lug and burning of cars was done by
hoodlums and not by railroad men ?" asked Mr.
" We believe that the strikers did nearly all of
It," answered Mr. M. John. " Wo hove no doubt
thntwo will bo able to substantiate this state
All knowledge of a honk containing a black
list and distributed among thu arl0ti1 roads
was denied by the witness. Ho denied that snl.
master Lot ejoy was discharged for being a mem
ber of tho A. it. I". The witness thin
entered Into a history of the Gen
eral Managers' Association. It was. ho
satd, a oluntary and not nn Incorporated
association with a constitution nnd by-laws. It
included twcnt)-four lines, all with terminals
In Chicago, and Its object was to sole problems
presented to tho general manngers It seemed
to be the idea that the (iencrul Managers'
Association was formed solely to crush lalior or
ganizations, he said. That was one of Its re
motest objects. Tile Itnesa read a list of bind
noss discussed lost jear. "We hate only con
sidered strikes onco or twice during the exist
ence of the association since lHHil," said tho wit
ncsri. "That Is the smallest part of ourbusU
In reply to the question, "What hao jou to
offeras o solution of the labor problem V" Mr. St
John read nu answer. Arbitration was the only
thing he fat tired at all, hut as a general prupo
sltton he could offer no solution. He condi mucd
the sympathetic strike a cne that could never
bo nettled b) arbitration. Ho thought the li
censing of emplojeeshad som" good points. The
witness told how the general managers had re
jected the overture of thu A. It. V. to declare the
"Why did you refuse to consider this com
munication?" asked Mr, Kernan.
Mr. Rt. John said it was because the associa
tion did net want to recognize the A. H V.
Isit not true," asked Mr. Kernan, "that If a
strike occurred on a lino lielonglng to the as

" Yes. sir."
"Well, then, why did not the General Man.

the body of a man In tho Kast Hit cr about 200
feet from the Island shore on Tuesday afternoon.
The body, which hail bicn in the water about

dark hair nnd moustache, and weighing 180
pounds. It was dressed In the costume worn by
tho Ward's Island Hospital patients.
Half an hour later a second body was found
near the shore of the Island about n quarter of
