different cities met at Chicago lant February
and drafted a bill explaining their condi

Anortioerof the Brotherhood said last

If the ttrrus of our circular to the confer

It Is a mistaken Idea to believe thul the
companies have made us any concession",
and what they agreed to do is really to
work us hurdcr and closer than before.
They have prepared a code which Is more
obnoxious to the men than the old system
ever was. formerly they paid us a certain
salary' Pr month of thirty tUv, and de
ducted the diiy on which we were off, yet
often, lu slack time, we were allowed to go

full. Now they propose to keep account of
the uour a tutlly worked, and pay us at
tne rate of nine hours per dity. We have
choieu the licit time for a atrike, and if we
do stop nn one can teU how much we will
Injure the commercial world. Kirsily, we
will stop the cable and cut off Europe from
all communication with this country. Then
all the railroad station men will Hop, and

Chicauo, July 14. A decision was given
by Judge Blodgett in the United States Dis
trict court for the northern district of Illi
nois yesterday which provokes a wide Inter
est. In the early part of the year 187. the
electors of the towns of Utlca
and Deer Turk, Illinois, held
town meetings, at which It was vot
ed to borrow money with wbluh to build a
bridge across the Illinois river, which
formed the boundary Hue between the two
towns. In pursuance of this action the
Highway Commissioners at the two towns
entered Into s conuact with the Wrought
Iron Bridge company of Pitts
burg for the Iron superstructure of
the proposed bridge. Tbe bridge
was completed according to contract,
und tbe towns refused to itv. Suit was In.
stltuted against the towns, but the Supremo
ot aiunois decided that tho
wore not liable. A hill
by the bridge company In
the federal court
lowed to take down
asking to bo al
and remove the
bridge on the ground that the company had
erecled It tinder a mistake of law and het.
Judge Blodgett said they were eUltnlily en
titled to this relief, and entered a docree In
tbe company's favor to that effect, unless
the towns pay tho amount claimod In ninety
