An Old Communication Seemingly Writ
ten Under Prophetic Inspiration.
Attorney Jackson II. Knlston, of this city,
wrote the following to the Baltimore Critio
over Ave years ago. In tho light of recent
events its publication now Ehould provo
of great interest:
Messrs. EDITons: On July 2, 1850, tho
the President signed "an act to protect trade
and commerce against unlawful restraints
and monopolies." The people have been led
to believe that this act w as m some myster
ious way designed to put an end to "trusts,"
which, though the logical symptoms of a
diseased condition, are by many well-meaning
cersons considered the disease itself.
That" Congress really intended to attack, or
really has attacked, trado unions instead of
trusts, must bo mauifest to every patent
reader of the act.
Before reciting tho provisions of this law
1 must premise tnat many acts in fact most
of tho operations of trade unions are what
Is legally termed "in restraint of trade." It
only remained for Congress to give them an
unquestionable criminal character.
Section 1 provides that eery contract, com
bination in the form of trust, or otherwise, or
conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerco
among tho several states or with foreign na
tions, is illegal; and Axes a punishment for
every person entering such combination of
not exceeding $5,000 fine or ono 3 ear's im
prisonment, or both. Therefore, should rail
way omployes, engaged with or without their
knowledge in transporting interstate or
foreign commerce, engage in a strike, they
may be liable to severo punishment, such an
act being "in restraint of trade or commerce
among the several states or foreign nations."
Surely a railway attorney framed this sec
tion. Section 2 declares tbnt "any person who
hall monopolize or attempt to monopolize or
combine or conspire with any other jicrson or
persons to monopolize am part of the trade
or commerce among the several states or with
foreign nations shall be guilty of a misde
meanor, etc." This section wns evidently in
serted to glvo a speciousness to the title of
tho act. It says too much to mean anything,
ainco all interstate trade is, on tho part of all
engaged in it, nn attempt to monopolize some
part of such trade.
Tho third section strikes at tho foundation
of all trade unions in the District of Columbia
and tbe territories. It provides that"eery
contract, combination in form of trust or
otherwise, or conspiracy in restraint of trado
or commerce in any territory of tho United
States or of the District of Columbia, or in
restraint of trado or commerce between any
such territory or territories and any state or
states or the District of Columbia or with
foreign nations, or between the District of
Columbia and any state or states or foreign
cations," is illegal and provides tho samo
punlshmcntJor its violation as does tho first
It therefore appears that tho men who com
bine to striko for higherwagos, against scabs,
ngamst an oonoxious loreman, lor snorter
hours, etc, in tho District of Columbia or the
territories, aro to bo regarded ns engaged in
criminal acts and severely punished.
Section -1 concerns tho civil enforcement of
this law. and it is made tho duty of the sev
eral district attorneys, under tho direction of
the Attorney Genera!, to provont its violation
by petition for injunction, etc If, therefore,
the railroads fear ft strike the wholo legal
forcq of the United htates becomo their un
paid retainers and servitors, made so by tho
United States statute.
By section 5, upon petition for injunction
being filed, the process of the circuit courts
may run to any part of tho United States. If
the Knights of Labor are about to become en
gaged in a strike in California Mr. Towderly
may be made i party defendant in a civil suit
brought In that state upon tho suggestion of
tho district attorney that such courso should
bo taken. In this way it is unquestionably
designed to reach tho chiefs or all labor or
ganizations, tho subordinate branches of
which engage in so-called "conspiracies in
restraint of trade."
In moro than ono hundred years of con
gressional legislation it is safe to say that
nover before was it attempted to adjudicate
the personal rights and ehil privileges of a
man in n tribunal other than that under which
ho lived. For n century it has been thought
necessary to sue a man in bis home forum.
not perchance to force his appearance in a
court three thousand miles away to answer
what may be on unfounded action. Of course,
when courts have before them in their home
jurisdiction what they term tho "res" or
thing in controversy, in a sultablo maioer
they determine tho interests of individuals in
It, oven if the persons affected bo out of tho
jurisdiction. But never before has a United
States circuit court been given a control over
tho persons of defendants living in a jurisdic
tion foreign to that in which the court sits.
To this extremity have tho railroads gone in
their preparations for tho next striko.
Tho threo remaining sections it is unneces
sary to consider, their purpose being merely
to more effectually enforce tbo sections al
ready referred to at large.
I do not now speak of the Interpretations,
qualifications, constructions, and limitations
which may be engrafted on tho law by ju
dicial action, nor of tho objections which
may be urged against It. It is enough for
the present that wo know its evident nlm, to
tho end that we may call on Congress to re
view Its action. Tho repeal of snch a law
would bo astly better than its judicial appli
cation. J. II. lliLSTOX.

CRISP SPORTING COMMENT
Senators Break Their Bad Luck Spell
for the Time Being.
IMPROVEMENT IN THE RACING
Alexander Island Officials Have Succeeded
in Bringing About a Better Condition of
Affairs Followers of the Local Team
Given a Sop by Saturday's Success.
It Is the unexpected tbnt always happens
and this was essentially true on Saturday
when the Senatorial aggregation journeyed
ocr to the Monumental City and gave the
high and lordly Orioles a call-down. The
Baltimorcans could hardly believe it possible
tbo Washingtonians could do it, but they
found out differently. Even tho Senators
wero astonished as in the last inning they
were so nervous and excited they camo very
near upsetting tho can of good luck and spoil
ing tho whole business by their misplays. If
they could only Held as well as tbey bat it
would bo a great improvement aud result in
moro games won.
This afternoon tho Senators will glvo tho
Orioles a chance to get revenge and tho gam
will bo plajed at National Park. Wnshlng
tonians will ha e nn opportunity to seo how
Sheibeck will size up at short. It Is in order
for the new man to fall sick or get hurt, us
this seems to 1k tho order of tbo day. Cam
pau had been batting homers and breaking
all base stealing records 'down South, but
just as soon as bo bocamo a Senator ho went
lamo and has been unnblo to piny. Stocks
dale and McMahon are still on the hospital
list and will not be able to play for some
Manager Schmelz lias lost cone of bis
abundant stock of whiskers, despite tho re
ports from tho West that Gus had been
plucking his "windies" by tho handful while
tho Senators wero dropping game after game.
no is "nil rignt, nil rignt, as "itoarlng Bill
Hnssamaer would whisper, and tbo manager
still is confident the local club will finish
better than twelfth. Gus is sanguine, if
nothing else, and his hard-iuck tnlo would
doubtless fill n book. Little Arthur Irwin
probnbly could glvo Schmelz a strong push
for a hard-luck story.
Tho record of the Senators is a bad one,
and it will be a bard matter for the team to
better its standing. Tho Colonels are not far
ahead, but then tho KcntucMans have brarod
up in their work, and ore liable to win a
game now and then.
Racing at tho Island track has improved
very much, and as a consequence the attend
ance bus picked up and the betting is moro
spirited. Flayers or form bin a but little cause
for complaint, as tho best horse wins iu the ma
jority of cases although not always a favorite.
The great trouble with manypersons is to
look for jobs and thereby lose their head nnd
also money. While tho officials should be
prompt in protecting the public from tho wiles
of tho shrewd and artful horseowner and tho
cunning jockey, yet when nn error is made it
is alwajs in order to correct it.
Several weeks ago Jockey Harry Lewis was
ruled off because of a suspicious rido on
Keime. On further Investigation it has teen
fully established that Lewis was not guilty of
any fraud and was punished for another's
sin. Accordingly tho truck officials have de
cided to reinstate Lewis and the boy will
again bo seen in the saddle nt the local track.
Ho is already here and was Yesterday ac
quainted withtbo good news. He is nn old
hand in the saddle nnd has many warm ad
mirers who will bo glad to hear of tho
Mr. Could said to an Associated Press rep
resentative that after the showing made by
the Vigilant on .Saturday he would not care
to prophesy what she was going to do. Tho
crew wero now working together and getting
used to tho British conditions and courses.
Tho yacht's bails were on Saturday handled
perfectly. In soino cases better than those
of the Britannia.
There is n difference of opinion regarding
tho alleged breaking of the bicyclo record be
tween Baltimore and this city by Prof. Harry
Parks. The latter is said to havo made tho
run over the short route via Laurel in three
hours and four minutes. L. C. Wahl claims
this route to bo eight miles shorter than that
covered by him, who rode via Clarksvillo and
Sandy Springs. Mr. Wahl made the run in
two hours and fortj--nino minutes, just fifteen
minutes better time than that claimed by
Parks. Card for To-day.

C0XEYITCS WERE MISERABLE.
Industrials .More Like Drowned Rnts Than
Unmans Down in the Dump3 from
Hunger and the Elements.
Tho members of tho Frye brigade wero
down in tho dumps yesterday. The day was
altogether tho most miserable they have spent
since they arrived here. The fine weather
which they havo luckily experienced during
tho past month changed and n drenching,
cold, nnd clammy fall ot rain soaked the half
clothed "industrial" soldiers to tiie skin. At
tho tos5lvn camp thcro is no protection for
tho men from tho rain, and they were conse
quently disconsolate nnd peevish.
Tho rainstorm seemed to superinduco their
misery. Tor the past two days the men havo
eaten barely enough to keen them alive, nnd
when tho rain set in they wero in nnything
but a happy frame of mind. Thev walked
utnong the trees and dodged in nooks trying
to keep as dry ns possible, but they murmured
loud and long that the pangs of hunger wero
knnwing snvngely and making them feel bad.
Some of the men have built themselves rude
tents, covered with leaves, but they wero
quickly made inhabitable by jesterday's
downpour, and their owners were forced to
join the larger body of men who are without
even the shelter of a crude hut.
One of the commonwealers expressed a
sentiment widely prevalent in the camp. Ho
said: "This is one of the days that makes us
feel how foolish it is to bo lingering here."
Notwithstanding tho growing discontent
among tho men, the leaders show no dispo
sition to abandon the reservation. As a mat
ter of fact, they earnestly assert that they
will hold on. Micawber like, until something
mrns up. inoyaro emooiaenert in tfieir in
tention by tho constant incoming of men
from tho West. All tho new comers aro im
poverished, forlorn, and homeless, and they
but ewell tho number of tho destitute,
nnd make the situation at Itosslya more men
acing and dangerous.
Withm tho past few dny3 tho camp has been
added to by several hundred men. and from
ndvices received by Trye, Salisbury, and
others tho camp will bo swollen into ab
normal size, nnd tho lllagers are f reo in ex
pressions of their opinion to the effect that it
is an nbsoluto plague spot. Tho mon aro con
stantly through tho village and surrouqding
country begging for food, and thair daily re
turns nro becoming less ami less, while tho
demand is increasing with great rapidity.
At the Bladensburg camp in Maryland tho
Coxcyites are havinc better times than their
neighbors across the l'otomno. They aro to
protected from tho elements.
Tho men sleep under canas, and they were
able yesterday to utilize the canvas to keep
off tbo rain. Again by the order of General
Coxb7 no moro men are being admitted to the
camp, tno store of provisions is running down
nnd very little is being received, so to pre
vent a possible collapso of tho camp through
hunger, no further men will bo received at
MEANT NO HARM TO GIBSON.
Ezckicl Charles, a Crank, Wanted to Call
Upon the Senator.
Tho vigilance of Policeman Lynch, yester
day afternoon, saved Senator Gibson from an
unwelcome "call from a "crank," named
Ezekiel Charles. Charles was bent upon
vi-iting the Senator when the policeman
nrrcsted him, in the park nt the corner of New
Jersey avenue and I street northwest, while
he was striving to learn tho location of the
Senator's residence. Ho said he did not
mean to barm the Senator.
Tho crank was locked up in the Sixth pre
cinct station-houso. He stated that he was
from Cambridge, Md., and that he had a
brother named Simon Feter Charles there,
who is in good circumstances. He said he
was connected with lending families on tho
Eastern Shore. He wanted Senator Gibson
to aid him in compelling Jim Lone and Jim
Higgins to give him the back pension money
whicn he claims they had gotten for him, but
which they would not surrender.
Charles stated that he was the founder of a
church with a very long name, and that all of
the people of Dorchester county, Md., wero
members of it He said that ho did not know
Senator Gibson, but had heard ot him.
Ezekiel claims to havo been a member of the
First neglment ot Eastern Shore Volunteers
during the war. He is about 0 years ot age.

London, July 22. Aside from Sarah Bern
hardt, tho week has been devoid of noveltlea
in theatricals. Operatie and dramatic per
formances before the court are so frequent
as to no longer attract much attention. For
instance, on Wednesday lost, the two Do
Rcszkcs were commanded to appear at
Windsor Castle during the afternoon. Tbey
obeyed, naturally, and sang a selection of
solos and duets from varions operas, Tosti
presided at the piano. Tho same evening
Slegrid, Arnoldson, Ben Savies, and SIgnor
Arcona sang before the Queon. the Czar
wlch, and other members of royalty and 'hoir
guests, selections from Cowen's "Slgna."

Tho Princess of Wales, accompanied by a
briliant suite, was present on Thursday last
at Sarah Bernhardt's performance of "La

Fmaie de Claude," The nudienco npplauded
vigorously, ana Mme. Bernhardt was recalled
repeatedly. But tho enthusiasm displayed
was called forth by the wonderful art of tho
great actress, nnd not by the play.

Twenty years ago managers would as soon
have thought of flying as of undertaking a
tour round tho whole English-spenklng
world. Now such enterprises aro of quite
common- occurrence. Early in September
George Edwards sends to America a power
lul burlesque company, whoso tour will open
with a ten weeks' season in Now York.
Their principal piece is "A Gaiety Girl,"
which has had such great success at the
1'rineo of Wales', but "In Town" will also be
rlayed. After visiting tho chlei towns in the
United Htates tho company will sail from San
Francisco for Australia and will not return to
England until July, 1895. so that the tour will
last altogether ten months.
Several interesting engagements have been
made by George Edwards in connection with
'tho English touring company of "A Gaiety
Girl." Nina Martlno, of "La Petito Parisi
enno" fame, will play tho important part of
Miua, and two sons of Nellie Farren will also
be in the cast. Miss Martino la now taking
cnncing and fencing lessons at tho expense
of tho management.
As an instance of nineteenth century pre
cocity it may bo mentioned that Sydney El
lison, tho stage manager nt tho Princo of
Wales', is barely out of his teens.
Maud Hobsou, who played tho pnrt of the
Gaiety Girl in London, but who will not co to
America, has just bad her portrait painted by
Markham Skipworth. She is seated in a gilt
chair, bobind which Is a background of hang
ing tapestry. Her dress, which is cut low. is
of white and yellow satin, embroidered with
gold and edged with sable. The jewels she Is
wearing are nil turquoises, tho comb in her
hair, her necklace, and bracelets consisting of
most handsome and valuable stones. Maud
Hobson is worshiped by tho "Jeunesso
doree" of London and scarcely a day passes
but she receives extravagant presents of jew
elry, many of them sent by anonymous donors.
Edward Terry, who. by his performance in
"King Kodak," showed that despite long dis
use his burlesque bad lost nouo of Its cunning,
starts on n provincial tour with bis own com
pany on tho 13th proximo. He will return to
town in December with two new plays, and
after their production it is not unlikely that
he will set forth on a prolonged tour in
America, Australia, and India.
rr was. it was the cat.
Even In tho best reguiatod theaters ludi
crous stago mishap3 aro not unknown. A
most amusing instance of disillusioning, duo
to the theatrical superstition that it is neces
sary to have a cat "behind," is reported from
tho pnninces. Tho great scene In "Tho
Middleman" is. of coarse, In tho third act,
when Cyrus Blenkorn breaks open his oven
and finds that be has discovered the long-lost
secret of making u certain old ware. In the
lccinning of the act Blenknrn dwells nt
length'upon the excesslvo hent to which the
clay has been subjected, nnd ho has to wait a
long time before the oven has sufficiently
cooled to ennblo him to pull down the bricks.
Tho actor had just reached the final point in
tho scene, and the bricks wero beginning to
crash upon the floor, when a largo black cat
appeared at the oriflco and leaped upon the
stage. The result produced on the audience
by this unrehearsed effect can readily be Im
agined. Mr. Oscar Beringer has written a two-act
piny, "The Plot of His Story," founded on a
6tory by Morley Roberts, who started life by
running away from on uncongenial home and
serving for many months before the mast.
Morley Boberts is a great favorite at tho
Author's Club, to whose members ho often
relates his manifold adventures. He is too
much of a rolling stono, however, ever to
make a great name. At present he is believed
to be In Ban Francisco, employed as a de
tective, but his friends have received no news
of him for months past.
Tho Misses Sutro, of Baltimore, have bean
so successful in their private performances
hern as pianists that tbey were induced to
give a concert yesterday at Steinway Hall and
achieved great success. Tho newspapers
comment favorably upon the performance,
and chronicle their ensemble playing as be
ing as complete in every respect as the most
exacting critio could desire.
At her hotel in Jermyn street Mrs. Frank
Leslie recently entertained at breakfast Sarah
Bernhardt, Loxton Hunter, editor ot the
Bybsrlte, and Charles Alvin GUIig, president
ol tb United States exchange In London.
-31 me. Bernhardt and Mrs. Frank Leslie soon
became friends nnd unbosomed to each other
their weals and woes. The French tragedian
next expressed her profound admiration for
Americans' and "Cosas d'America."
"The Americans," she said, "havo soul,
wit. nnd a keen appreciation of art in its
highest form. In ' America you find the true
chivalry, tbo chivalry which gives to woman
her proper place. London to mo Is sad. so
sad. American cities give me life. Look- at

Sermon rather McGco Dilates on
These Important Subjects.
St. Patrick's Roman Catbolio Church at
Tenth, near F street, was fairly crowded yes
terday at the 10.30 o'clock mass. The regu
lar high mass, which usually occurs at this
hour, has been abandoned for the summer,
and tho muslo was of a very simplo charac
ter. Tho sermon was preached by Rev. Father
McUee, who took as his text the g03pel of tho
Tho reverend priest, In a few thoughtful re
marks, contrasted the lifo and action of men
who ate moied by pride, haughtiness and
self-sufficiency, and the men who put humil
ity, genueness anu a reunnco on super-natural
power above all canhly ambitions. He
demonstrated tbo superiority of tbo latter
class of men, and said that the worcs ot holy
Scripture always como true, especially where
It says that "He that exalteth himself shall be
cast down, but be who is of an humblo and
lowly spirit Bball be exalted."
Tho preacher was very bitter in his denunci
ation ot tho pharisaic breed in humanity, and
excoriated that peculiarly offensive individual
who, having a smattering ot knowledge, natu
ral, or supernatural, sets himself up as a dic
tator and director of other men's nctions. He
laid tho following principles down as a rule
to determine tbo goodness or greatness of a
man: "Above all things a good man is abso
lutely unconscious of any interior or exterior
finality which favorably commends itself to
God or man, and the truly great man sinks
his personality in his thought, and thoroughly
eliminates any trait which offensively im
presses those around him that 'ho knows it
HOYJ ST. PAUL WAS CONVERTED.
Famous as a Persecutor and a Teacher of
Notwithstanding tho wot weather yesterday
morning, quite a large gathering of worship
ers was present in the First Congregational
church, at Tenth and G streets. The choir,
which is one of the best in the city, rendered
some beautiful, soul-stirring mtfiie.
Rev. Ross Fishburn based his sermon on
St. Paul's words to the Corinthians, "The
lovo of Christ constrnineth us." The preacher
dwelt on St. Paul's lite before and after his
conversion, and Enid that the great apostle of
the Gentiles was equally famous as a perse
cutor of Christians and a preacher and
teacher of Chr.'stlan dogma. "In both roles."
ho said, "ho showed nn irresistible, almost
reckless energy." He traced the early life ot
St. Paul, when ho went around with unre
strained hatred nnd laid low the first teachers
of the new religion.
3Ir. Fishburn opened up to his congrega
tion n dramatic picture of tho teirible scenes
which were enacted on Jewish soil under tho
direction of this man. and said that though
tho unbridled fury of Saul of Tarsus wrecked
itself in death and desolation, yet he was
moved by a sincere spirit for the preservation
of what he believed to be truth.
He then portrayed tho conversion of tho
persecutor, and told how his energy was
translus.'d into advancing tho doctrines of
Christ, and said that tbo marvelous change
wrought In tho man was found in tho words
of hii text, that "The love of Christ con
STORM HAD NO TERRORS.
Calvary Itaptlst Crowded to Hear Rev. C.
r. Winbliglcr, or nioominston, HI.
Rev. C. T. Winbllgler, of Eloomincton,
111., occupied tho pulpit of Calvary Baptist
Church yesterday morning. Tho church was
crowded by a large congregation notwith
standing tho heavy down pour of rain.
Tho sermon wns founded on the text
Isaiah G, 3: "Thou will keep him ia perfect
ptaco whoso mind is staj ed on Thee, because
ho trustnh in Thee." Tho main idea pre
sented by the preacher was that Godgavo
pence to tho troubled soul ot man. lie said
in part: "The soul is encompassed in life with
many enemies from without, and it is only by
tho help of God that tbo soul is protected
from the dangers that surrounded it."
Ho spoke nlso of a spirit of disquietude
that existed in tho breast of man. This, he
believed, aroused a feeling in man's soul of
the necessity for n closer relation with God.
"The consciousness of quiet that is often
awakened iu man makes him realize that ho
be is a creature and that God Is his creator."
Tho preacher then pased from this point
and discussed tho thought tnat every man had
difficulties to encounter through life. Ho
mentioned the troubles that befell us in child
hood, youth, manhood, nnd old age, of tho
perils that befell every ono in the various
stages ot life.
"Sickness, poverty, perplexities of business,
social cares, domestic worries, sorrows, and
many other ills that visit the soul of man are
enemies of the soul. They bring with them
much disquietude, said the preacher. After
looking upon the many things that environed
human existence with darknessjand gloom tho
preacher turned to tho brighter side of life
that was promised to the believer. Tho pos
sibility of peace to the human soul was real
ized, ho held, by true faith in Christ. In tho
resurrection of Christ was tho hopo of salva
tion, nnd tno soul that trusted in God would
find tho peace that brings with it comfort aud

Gen. Casey Asked to Remit Tines Imposed
by Arm j- Engineers.
Gen. Casey, chief engineerof tho nrmy.who
has control of river and harbor works of this
city, has been appealed to by Senator Mitchell
to remit tho fines imposed by the army en
gineers on John Kiernan, the sub-contractor,
who furnished 150.000 tons of rock for tho
jetty nt tbe mouth of tho Columbia river.
Fines for non-delivery of stated quantities of
rock in time ns called for by the engineer in
charge of tho wirfcs wero imposed on Kier
nun, who has raised the point that tho delays
occurred in the months of May and June of
last year and was due to floods.
There is also n question between tho super
vising engineer and the contractor as to tho
right of tho latter to perform a part of his
contract by delivering rock weighing not
more than trom SO to 1,000 pounds.
Rev. Howard Wilbur Ennls Indisposed.
Eev. Howard Wilbur Ennis, pastor of tho
Wester 1'resbyterian church, was unable to
preach yesterday on acccunt of sickness. He
conducted the morning service to the time
when tho sermon should have begun nnd then
announced that he was too ill to continue nnd
dismissed the congregation. He whs attended
by a doctor yesterday afternoon and although
confined to his bed. his case was not pro
nounced serious and it is expected he will bo
out in a few days.
