RIGHT AND MONEYED MIGHT
State of Illinois Attacks the Octopus
Chicago Gas Trust.
CASE IN THE CIRCUIT COURT
Petitions to Institute Proceedings Filed After
the Close of the Stock Market Yesterday.
Pour Nominally Separate Companies Doing
Business Under a Single Head.
Chicaoo, 111., April 24. Tho war of tho
state ol Illinois against the Krcat Chicago gas
trust began to-day in the circuit court of Cook
Attorney General Malonoynndtwo brilliant
assistant attorneys general and a formidable
array of legal talent, rosprcscnting property
owners of tho city ol Chicago, are to prosecute
tho quo warranto proceedings, and if tho
etato Is ouccesstul the charter of the gas
trust will be revoked and tho valuable
franchises of tho various companies repre
senting tho association become worthless as
the proflt-bearing mediums which have for
so many years been favorably listed on the
great ttoelr exchanges of tho country.
The filing of the petition of tho Attorney
General for permission to institute tho pro
ceedings of quo warranto was made public
shortly after 3 o'clock this afternoon after
the closing of the stock exchanges of tho
country in order that the matter might not
be made a means of .influencing tho mnrket
so that tho effect on the exchanges will not
become apparent until to-morrow morning.
The interest on tho street and in commer
cial circles, however, havo been intenso, and
the office of tho Attorney General in this city
was besieged by anxiou3 inquirers immedi
ately after the news became public To a re
porter of tho Associated Press tho Attorney
General said: "I havo begun these proceed
ings after careful deliberation and painstak
ing incstlgntion, and because I think the
people 01 tno state of Illinois havo a just com
plaint against this trust. There has boon no
time in my career in which I have posed as
nn anti-corporation man, for I bellevo tho
corporations have rights under the constitu
tion and thu laws which should be respected.
But when they disregard tho laws of tho
stnto and combino their capital and their
franchises to oppress tho people it is tho duty
of tho law officers of the state to wage a war
for tho disintegration of the unlawful com
bination. "That is what I havo asked to do in tho
petition to-day, tiled in the circuit court of
Cook county, and, of course, the court will
open its doors to tho causo of tho peoplo. I
merely want to say that I havo begun this
suit upon my own responsibility and in utter
disregard of the strictures that havo been so
frequently made on various sides. If I lose
tho suit which I am about to wage to dissolve
this trust, I alone will take the responsibility;
if I win it and rescue the public from the ex
tortions to which I believe it has been unlaw
fully subjected, I desire whatever credit thn
people of the state of Illinois are willing to
accord one who has not been coerced into tho
performance of an official duty.
"I know what is at stake, and when this
warfare! is ended I will be willing to bo
weighed in tho balance of public opinion."
In tho preliminary statement of his petition
tho Attorney General says: "When the ieti
tion and evidence in this case was presented
to me I notified tho representative of the dif
ferent corporations of that fact. I felt it to
bo my duty to do so, for tho Teason that large
property interests were Involved and fair play
demanded that I g'iio these coqorations and
their representatives an opportunity to bo
heard before evoking tho aid of tho courts of
this stato to pass judgments on acts and con
duet. "For, if successful, it meant to them and
each of them corporate death: if not, then a
grievous and almost irreparable wrong would
have been done them by tho hasty and incon
siderate action of a stato officer, whose sworn
duty it is to protect etery legitimate property
interest in the State."
Alter detailing tho well-known facts of tho
organization ol tne -various companies, from
which tho trust was later created, the petition
"It is further charged in a verified petition,
supported by affidavits and other documen
tary ewdenco that these four corporations nro
in a trust: that all of said corporations have,
practically, a common board of directors, that
is to say, nil, or mostly all of tho directors
nre in one or tho other of the constituent cor
porations, and in somo instances, that the en
tiro body of directors of one company consti
tute, with a few additions, the board of direc
tors of another; that et cry act of tho consti
tuent corporations indicate a common under
standing and common purpoe.
"That the same hand and head, or hand3
and beads direct every movement of theso
artificial beings, and that tho directions is
toward a common end, and indicates n com
mon origin, n common purpose, a combina
tion for furthering their own interests, that
comjictition, or any Incentivo toward compe
tition, between them is entirely destrojed;
that tho promoters of this scheme ha o and
possess tho stock of the four constituent cor
porations to the extent already mentioned,
(that Is that they owned SSl'.Gll of tho 299.
SffS shares Issued and sold by them); that all
tho stock as obtained was cancelled by theso
four corporations and new stock for an equal
or llfco amount issued directly.to tho Chicago
Gas Trust Company."

WOULD RATHER ROT IK JAIL,
Editor Edward Rosen nter Incarcerated for
Thirty Days for Contempt of Court.

tor of the Bee, was to-day sentenced for thirty
days and a fine of $500 for contempt of court.
Mr. Bosewater was ordered taken to jail, and

o'clock the state supremo court granted super
ccdas and Mr. Bosewater was released. '
Tho facts in tho article printed were not de
nied, but Judge C. B. Scott, who had dis
missed the case in question, felt aggrieved at
tho word "pull" used in it, and had the reportor
who wrote the matter brought before bim for
contempt. Tho reporter was sent up for
thirty days, and then Judgo Scott arraigned

with a demand that ho bo heard. This the
court refused to grant, but Mr. Bosewater,

"It is a monstrous doctrine. I bad rather
rot in forty jails and prisons than to surren
der what has been fought for by the fathers
of this Republic, tho liberty of the press to
criticiso publlo servants, and the courts are
public sen ants. I shall cheerfully subm.lt to
this ordeal. It will not hurt me. It there is

tho prisoner off to jail.
FRANK HATTON STRICKEN.

Frank Hatton, editor of the Washington
Post, was stricken with paralysis yestorday
in his office at tho Post building. He was
taken as promptly as possiblo to his homo in
Hillyer place, where he lies in a critical con
dition. Tho paralysis is only partial, how
over, and tho physicians express hopes that
ho may recover.
It was about ono o'clock In tho afternoon
when Mr. Hatton received the first warning
of tho attack. He immediately called down a
tubo, which runs from his offlco to that occu
piod by Mr. Wilkins, asking him to come to
him at once. Mr. Wilkins hastened to Mr.
Hatton's room on tho third floor. As ho en
tered Mr. Hatton told him that he felt very
strangely and that ho feared a stroke of pa
ralysis. He explained that there was no feel
ing in his right side and that he could not
raise his right hand to his head. Mr. Wil
kins tried to reassure him and said that it was
probably nothing more serious than an acuto
attack of indigestion.
"But you do not know how I feel," ho said.
Even then his articulation and the drawn
appearance of his right cheek showed that bis
fears woro realized. A physician was imme
diately called, but It was nearly half an hour
before he arrived. In tho meantimo, the suf
ferer had lost consciousness. Tho doctor
said that a clot of blood had formed on the
brain, and that tho case was a serious one.
An nmbulanco from tho Emergency hospital
was called nnd Mr. Hatton was taken home.
Three phjsicians wore soon in attendanco
nt tho bedside of tho sufforer. They reported
at 3 o'clock that ho was much improved, al
though his condition was still serious. Ho
had regained consciousness and was ablo to
recognizo those in tne room. The physicians
had been able to check tho hemorrhage of tho
At 9 o'clock in the evening Dr. Sowers said
that Mr. Hatton was resting without pain.
The paralysis was not total as was at first
feared, but was confined to the right side.
Ho appeared to bo wholly conscious, but was
unnblo to articulate. The physicians held
out more nope man tney did in the afternoon.
Mr. Hatton was resting comfortably at a
lato hour last night, and his physicians con
sidered his condition slightly Improved.
During the evening ho was able to speak a
few words. His son, Blchard Hatton, had
arrived from Princeton.

OPEN AIR COXEY MEETING
Smith, the "Unknown," Addresses
Commonwealcrs from a Box.
FIVE DETECTIVES PRESENT
They Anticipate Excitement, but Were Dis
appointed in This Line Seen Interest
Taken in the Mooting and Porfect Tran
quility Maintained Many Shake Hands.
There was in. audience of about 250 persons
assembled last night in tho stablo yard ad
joining the Tyson hotel, at tho corner of
Seventh and P streets northwest, to listen to
an address from Unknown Smith, tho mys
terious representative of tho Coxey army.
Tho speaker occupied a typical outdoor
platform constructed of a couple of large pine
boxes with a rough railing nnd dllapitated roof
and a gasolino light suspended at cither end.
All of the auditors occupied positions more or
less in' harmony with tho situation. Somo
were scatod on boxes, somo on wheels and
tho tops of wagons, but tho majority were
standing. Thero was not tho slightest demon
stration of hoodlumism or hooting, and tho
peace was broken only by frequent applause.
In contrast to the unfinished condition
of tho surroundings was notlceablo the
appearance and attira of tho speaker.
Ho is a refined and easy personage,
nearly six feet in height, solidly built,
and possesses a full-grown moustache Last
night ho was neatly drosscd, woro n well
polished pair of riding boots, buff trousers,
a dark browu corduroy coat and vest, with an
unoffending gold watch chain. A fresh whito
standing collar and shirt. light brown nocktlo
and riding cap topjed off bis appearance
For about an hour did ho interest his
listeners with tho tolls, troubles and woes
which tho people ore now suffering. Ho nar
rated at length us to what was going on in
the Coxey band, the many adventures they
had experienced, and the intentions for.which
they were marching on to Washington. Ho
sold that in tho present stntus of affairs it was
a difficulty for men to bo honest, and it w as
the desire of tho commonweal to alter things
so that men who wished to bo honest could
It is often the case, said the Unknown, that
a man coming into tho city wearing poor
clothes and with a countenance superinduced
by hard work and struggle, is classified as a
jay and has scorn heaped upon him for tbi
reason, and is dubbed a crank or arrested for
vagrancy. It is this condition that must bo
changed. Wbilo on tho road with his de
tachment number of men had coma to him
looking like tramps to all outward appear
ance, but when they wero given good clothes
they later returned looking very respectable.
Ho said that tho people who wero coming
were good citizens, without work, but needed
help and It was tho duty of the people as
American citizens and as man to man to ex
tend their aid to them.
When ho had finished speaking tho crowd
pressed about him to "shako his hand. Mr.
Smith is not Mr. Smith, and whoever ho is or
wnero ne naii3 irom ne keeps securely locked
up with his own generous convictions. Ho
appears to tako a great deal of delight In ob
scuring his Identity, but it was learned that be
comes from a much respected family in Ken
tucky. Last night Mr. Unknown stated to The
Times that he was not taking part in this
Coxey move for any personal gain, as ho was
possessed of sufficient income to keep him in
comfortable circumstances without implor
ing aid from Congress or any one else. His
motho was purely for tho relief of thousands
of persons whom he know w ero suffering all
over the country, and wa3 Inspired by his
sympathy for humanity. His nppearonco
nnd the earnest manner In which he spoko
did not belie his words. After his difficulty
with Browne he started toward Washington,
and at Rockville a large number of common
wealcrs. who preferred his authority to that
of any one else, joined bim, and ho now
claims to havo an army of 5S0 in that town
ready to moo toward tbo capital.
When Mr. Unknown left Frostburg ho had
stopped at various towns on the routo and
entirely changed tho sentiment of the poople.
Ho says that ho ha9 spent over $300 in pre
paring for tho reception of tho army in hd
vance. Ho had met Col. Bedstono at Rock
ville, and been in comersation with him the
greater part of Sunday.
It was rumored that there wero flvo de
tectives at the meeting last night to observe
the nature of his remarks to see if thero was
anything said that might arouse or excito tbo
public, and ono of tho detectives was the
lirst man to shako hands with Mr. Unknown
at the conclusion of his speech.
Whether Mr. Unknown is a crank or not he
certainly talks in n perfectly rational manner,
and firmly believes that ho is doing the best
thing in his power to benoflt mankind. He
will speak again to-night at 8 o'clock.
AK.MING THE TREASURY.
Officials will Take no Chances on the Com
ing Coxey itcs.
The Treasury officials, while disclaiming
any fears of trouble on nceount of tho pres
ence of tho crowds incident to the coming of
Coxey's army, havo taken the precaution of
adding fifty-five carbines and twenty revolv
ers to tho Treasury's supply of arms.
Tbo normal strength of the watch force of
Treasury 19 seventy men. divided into two re
liefs, and fn addition to two or threo dozen
revolvers thero has always been thirty-flvo
carbines in the racks In tho ofilco of tho cap

each watchman on duty.
It has been thought best, however, to in
crease tho supply in view of tho crowds of
hangers on of Coxey's army that are expected
to nrrivo In the city during tho coming week.

local military organization composed entirely
of clerks in the Treasury Department, yester

COL. REDSTONE RETURNS.
Says a Posse of Frederick Deputies Apolo
gized for Their Official Presence.
Tho Washington representative of the
Coxey army, Col. A. E. Bedstone, returned
lata lost night from bis visit to the common
weal camp at Boonesboro, Md. A Times man
called upon him at his office shortly after his
return and found him well pleased with the
result of his visit.
Col. Bedstono said that he did not know
just how many the army numbered, but that
it was all right both as to quality and quan
tity. "Mr. Coxey." ho said, "returned from
New York yesterday, joining the army at
Frederick, and appears perfectly satisfied.
All along the routo the army wo3 received
with tho utmost enthusiasm, and at Frederick
tbo whole town turned out to meet tho pro
cession, and as it passed down the street,
flags floated from tho windows and handker
chiefs wero waved by the spectators lined up
along tho sidewalk.
"About four or flvo miles from Frederick
wo wero met by n sheriff's posse of forty men,
who apologized for their presence In their
official capacity, saying that they had been
sent out by a judge, whilo they themselves
heartily condemned tbo action. About two
miles from tho city we were met by the
Frederick Independent Drum Corps, which
took its position at the head of the column,
and escorted us into the city, through the
principal streets and to tho placo of meeting.

They denounce tho "unknown" for collecting
money under falso pretenses and assert that
Coxey's men nre orderly, law abiding citizens
from whom Washington has nothing to fear.
They believe that Glen Echo will bo selected
for tho Washington camping place of the
army, a spot on tho edge of the city whero
thero was an unsuccessful attempt by real es
tate men two years ago to establish a chau-
. tauqua assembly, nnd which had been offered

of nn unattached church here.
Ono of tho most prominent labor leaders
of tho city, M. F. Hobbs, whose name has
been connected with Coxey's crusade, repudi
ates it. Ho says, "so far as I know, labor
organizations intend to give no support to
this movement. As citizens they are inter

FnEDEBicK, April 24. Gen. Coxey returned
to the commonweal army to-day and was re
ceived with cheers on the very spot where
stood the houso of old Barbara Fritchie, who
bos done moro than anyono elso to make
Frederick town famous.
Mr. Coxey was well pleased with the result
of his New York expedition. He said that
tho trunk line roads bad not decided whether
or not thoy would give reduced rates to Wash
ington on May 1. Thero was to be a special
meeting of tbo trunk line managers to-day, he
said, and their decision would be telegraphed
In commenting on the manifesto of the
District Commissioners Mr. Coxey said that
it was just what might be expected under tho
circumstances. There was no need of any
preparatory proclamations by the District au
thorities as to tho order they were going to
preservo, and the whole thing was the same
sort of blester that had been made by Mayor
Fleming, of Froderick, when he declared that
tho commonweal should never parade his
town and then allowed the procession di
rectly under the noses of thirty deputy
Whilo in New York Mr. Coxey said ho had
been offered the uso of Woodley Park, out
side of Washington, as a campground for
tho nrmy. This be said Is one of the most
beautiful of tho suburban real estate divisions
about Washington, with good roads, wood,
grass, and close to Bock creek, and an abund
ant water supply. The offer was made by
Mrs. H. P. Wnggamon, one of the owners of
the tract, whom Mr. Coxey had mot at Tatter
sail's during the horso sales.
The offer has not yet been accepted, but a
conference between Browne and Coxoy on
the subject will be held to-morrow. During
his stay in New York, Mr. Coxey addressed a
largo meeting of tho industrial league, and
he is invited to return to New York on Satur
day to lecture at tho Grand Opera House, for
tho benefit of thj movement
To-night two other encouraging pieces of
news wero received by Mr. Coxey, one in the
form of n note from Congressman Coffeen, of
Wyoming, enclosing $50, with his blessing on
the commonweal movement.
The Massillon farmers who were opposed
to Coxey and the commonweal when the
start was made a month ago have also
changed their opinion, and written saying that
should Mr. Coxey be detained in Washington
beyond the timo of Spring plowing they would
see that nil nis crops were planted without
his returning to superintend the work.
The reception of the commonweal in Fred
erick was a complete surprise to the common
weaiers themselves. They were met near the
county line by a posse of thirty mountod
deputies under Sheriff Zimmerman' and es
corted into town.
But the people of the city were more dis
gusted over" calling out tho sheriffs deputies
than were tho Coxey men, for the deputies
were all being paid nt 3 a dav out of tbo
people's pockets, and it has already been de
nounced as a political job.
Tho deputies are anxious to prolong their
service as much as possible, and the orderhas
Deen that they shall stay with the common
weal night and day until it is out of tho
county. Therefore they have have been try
ing to-night to induce Coxey to camp hero

been better to appropriate S250 to buy food
for tho army than to pay 61,000 to tho ster
ifTs posso to proenttho nrmy from commit
ting depredations that they never contem
plated. The Coxeyltes are well satisfied to stand by
and see themselves fought over, while tho
prospects for a private subscription for pro
visions by tho merchants of the town is good.
It was decided at a lato meeting between
Coxey nnd Browne this evening to hold tho
commonweal in camp at the baseball park,
where they are very well provided for, and
move to Hyattsvillo on Thursday. But the
town authorities decided at the same time to
discharge the deputies, 60 they will not draw
$50 a day out of the county treasury during
tne stop over.
Tbo commonweal army is growing, nearly
3uu men marcneii out oi camp Aianiei Afoono
this morning. They wero joined by strag
glers along the road, nnd In Froderick thov
found another party of thirty-five men under
"Vindy" vnite, the trumpeter discharged at
Williamsport last week. Whito was not taken
ba:k Into tho fold, but his recruits wero ac
cepted and enrolled.
Tho party of thirty-five will be sent around
by tho old routo to liidgovillo, Damascus, and
Laytonsville, which wa3 to havo been
traveled by the main body on their
march. Mr. Coxey said that tnis was to
divide the foraging ground between tho two
parties, but tho general impression is that
thero are other bodies camped along tho route
awaiting tho coming of tho main body, and
the squad of thirty-flvo will net as n nucleus
to pick up to theso additional companies.
Tho stop of ono day in Frederick will not
mako any difference in tho timo of reaching
Rockyille. ns that distance can bo easily made
in three days and the nrmy is not due thero
till Saturday. Tho trip from Boonesboro to
Frederick to-day was sixteen miles, a long
day's march for tho men and devoid of any
especial Incident, aside from the meeting with
Sheriff Zimmerman and his posso at Bolivar.
To-night BrownS and Coxey addressed a
largo meeting in Junior hall, deferring to
the wish of Mayor Fleming that they should
not hold a meeting on the street as he had re
lented concerning his determination not to al
low tho nrmy to como into town at oil. While
camp will not be moved to-morrow its name
will be changed, as is the custom every day.
To-morrow it will bo camp Lafayette.

Owing to the exclusive orders given by
Miss Pollard that she should be guarded from
interviewers, it is as yet impossible to learn,
even approximately, of her future plans.
For the first time since the conclusion of

lard Monday made her appearance outside
tho Providence hospital.
She has gradually been recovering from the
nervous prostration which followed a relaxa

subjected during the trial, and has been
greatly benefited by rest and quiet. Each
day she has grown stronger.
Monday she went outside the bnilding and
was improved by the cool, fresh Spring air.
Yesterday was raw and a trifle too windy,
but hereafter it is probable that she will take
daily out-door exercise until her physical
health is completely restored.

Donnelly was the plaintiff in a case against

BATTLE TO BEGIN TO-DAY
Tariff Bill Is Now to Be Steadily
Pushed By Democrats.
Probable That Hours of Daily Sessions Will
Be Lengthened and 'Quorums Insisted oa
By Bepuhlicans Gorman "Writes Each
Democratic Senator to Be Present
According to tho agreement entered into
between tho Democrats and Republican Sen
ators, tho reading of tho tariff bill by para
graphs for amendment will probably begin at
1 o'clock to-dny.
Tho programme now docs not Include any
prepared speech, but if thero should be oppor
tunity for one, either Senator Dolph or Sen
ator Quay will probably proceed, as both have
unfinished speeches on hnnd.
It is considered as qcito probable that the
day will bo largely taken up in settling details,
one of the most important of which will be
as to tho limitation of hours of debate.
Tho Republican steering committee and
Senator Gorman held a conference yesterday
on tho course ot action on the tariff bill.
Among the Republicans were Senators Aid
rich, Allison, Hale, Washburn. Carey and
Mitchell. Propositions and counter proposi
tions wero made, but no agreement was
reached, and it was understood when the con
ference broke up that no agreement would be
attempted in the Senate, but that the consid
eration of the bill would be begun at 1 o'clock,
and the Republicans informed Mr. Gorman
that their side of the chamber would insist on
a quorum when any voto was taken on the
amendments to the bill.
Senator Gorman wanted the Republicans to
agrco that the consideration of the bill should
continue until C o'clock each evening, but to
this ho did not receive a favorable response, a
counter proposition being mado that a meet
ing of tho Senate at 11 o'clock would be more
This matter remains in the nir, to be Eettled
as affairs progress. The Republicans had
been informed by Senator Harris that only for
this week could any arrangement be made
looking to closing each day s session at 6
o'clock, intimating that after that time the
hours might be further lengthened. .
It 13 probable tbat the Republicans wil( do
bate the bill each day until there is a lack of
a quorum apparent, when they will allow a
voto to come upon somo amendment to show
the absence of a quorum.
Senator Gorman, who i3 chairman of the
Democratic caucus, has written a letter to
every Democratic Senator in or out of the
city, asking tbem to attend the session of the
Senate for tho purpose ot pushing the tariff
bill. He reminds them that unanimous con
sent under which tho tariff bill has been con
sidered will end to-day at noon. He says
the members of the Ftnonce Committee hav
ing Immediate chargo of the bill intend to
push its consideration as rapidly as pos
sible, and to enable them to do so, it will be
necessary for every Democratic Senator to be
present to-day at 1 o'clock and remain

The Democratic Senators continued their
conferences yesterday with a view to reach
ing an agreement upon tbo tariff bill, whereby
it can be so amended as to make sure ot tho
solid Democratic vote In the Senate. The
friends of the bill feel that it is important to

and they also waot the hearty support of tho

Among the Senatorsconsulted were Messrs.
Hill. Murphy, Smith, Gorman. Gibson, and
Brice. They find theso six to bo opposed to
the incomo tax and to the present sugar duty.
They will probably mako one or two ex
ceptions in granting the demands of tho dis
contented Senators. They asked, for instance,
that tho income tax be stricken out entirely.
This request will hardly bo conceded, but
this part of the bill will be materially modi-
Not only will the committee be found will
ing to reduce the limit of income to be taxed
and tho rate ot taxation, but they will also
more than likely be agreeable to fixing a time
when the tax shall ceaso to bo imposed.
This they wlil bo willing to do on the theory
that a few years' test would provo the popu
larity or unpopularity ot the tax, and they
think tbat if it should prove popular it can
be continued at tho pleasure of the voters
and of Congress. It is not probable now,
however, that tho champions of tho bill will
consent to tho striking out of this paragraph.
