IRON WORKERS' PAPER
ATTORNEY READS ATTACKS TO JURY
ASSAILS
Indianapolis. ImL, Nov. 23. Attack
on district attorney Charles W. Mil
ler and on the government's prosecu
tion of the "dynamite conspiracy"
cases, as published in the Iron Work
t rs union magazine since the trial be
lan, were read by Mr. Miller before
the jury today.
In an article as read to the jury, the
government's prosecution is referred
10 as follows:
"On the sixth of October these 45
defendants wolked into court and
pleaded 'not guilty' to the charges of
the steel trust. Then began the farce
trial, a trial in which money, pres
tige, power was the prosecutor of the
want and obscurity, a trial in which
the trust masquerades as the govern
ment." Fleas of XcXamarM'i.
Reference to the McNamara broth
ns' pleas of guilty at Los Angeles, as
read in evidence from the magazine,
"The pleas of 'guilty quickly fol
lowed the arrest. In the hands of an
all powerful enemy, with courts and
juries committed against them, with
Traitors as friends and friends as trai
tors, a trial was impossible. The Mc
Namaras stood bravely before the
v. oi-id and said: "Yes, we are war
riors. We fought as seemed to us
bet. We foujht force for force.
l-ower for power. Maybe we used the
w rong weapon. History will tell; but
we heard the cry, the anguishing ry
' f men and of women ground in the
firel yards, above the voice of cau
tion. We stand ready to take the con
sequences of our act without a whim-l
per. without an appeal for sympathy.
"But two victims were not enough
for the steel trust. The organisa
tion itself must be disrupted. Goaded
on with a desire for vengeance, they
stretched forth cruel' hands for moie
distinguished victims.
" 'Give us Gompers," they cried.
"i";:ve us Parrow." "

This Is to be a big fish story.
It is about a fisherman who
is so patient and so lucky that every
year he catches 200,000 tons of fish
that he sells for more than $60,000,000.
He has as much money as that in
vested in tackle. He is the biggest
fisherman on the world. His name is

Si!.' tor HB ft Includes only those
200,000 men who catch fish for a liv

the hungry millions.
No other nation in the world has
fisheries of such extent and value
the only reason one hears more of the
fisheries of certain other nations is
that an annual product of $10,000,000
is proportionately so much bigger in
Newfoundland than is $60,000,000 in the
United States. Nevertheless the fish
industry is a big thing with Americans,
and something that in one way or an
other affects every citizen of the
country.

Unless it be that of hunting, fishing

Rosary and Dies in Prayer.
Chicago, 111., Nov. 28. In a little
room on North Halstead street last
night, Mrs. Julia Miller and her six
months' old baby were found dead by
Mrs. Helen Weiss, a neighbor.
Mrs. Miller held her baby in her arm
and in her hand was clasped a. rosary.
Her attitude was that of prayer. Mrs.
Weiss told the police that the woman
and her babe died of starvation.
"Her husband left them." said Mrs.
Weiss. "She worked in a rag shop
She- could not earn enough at that to
provide for herself and the baby. I
tried to give her food. She was too

Every night she prayed like that, that

STILL EXISTS
WITHOUT MONEY
(By Winfleid Jones.)
Washington, D. C. Nov. 23. The last
session of congress tried to abolish the
court of commerce, but couldn't get paat
the presidential veto. Then it did the
next thing. It cut off all appropriation
for maintaining the court's establish
ment. After March 4 there still will be a
court of commerce. The judges on its
bench will be circuit judges, assigned
to that particular Denes, They will
continue to have jurisdiction of inter
state commerce matters. No other court 1
will have it.
The judges of this court will continue
to draw their salaries. But they will
have no money with which to rent
quarters; none with which to pax the
salaries of clerks, marshal, janitors or
stenographers. In short, there will be
left the membership and the jurisdic
tion of a court, kwc no wherewithal to
do business.
At the interstate eommiastoR offices
it s stated that3Jkere will he immedi
ate appeal from the cooHuuseaj chart's
decision in the sugar Ha, Barrage case,
which has causesl a new outburst of dis
affection with the commerce bench.
An Old Feud.
The old feud between the commission
and the court was fanned into new
flame when the lighterage decision

of the commerce court establishment
after March 4, that court still retains
the power to issue injunctions and or
ders, and no other court has been given
that power. The general impression has
got abroad that the court was prac
tically condemned to death when its
supplies were cut off. On. the contrary,
it will be just as much a court as ever:
a court, moreover, with a very big and
important exclusive jurisdiction; and
yet it will have no money with which
to carry on the physical details of its
business.
Court "Without Funds.
Interstate commerce authorities are
wondering what the court will do un
der these strange circumstances. There
has been a suggestion that, in order to
obviate great embarrassments, the short
session should either give the court
the needed money or else pass the leg
islation to abolish its Jurisdiction en
tirely and transfer it to other federal
courts.
But all that is easier suggested than
enacted. Congress is deadlocked. The
house. It is believed, would never con
sent to give the commerce court the
money it needs, and the president would
never recede from his position of main
taining the existence of tbe court. Con
gress can't abolish the court unless the
president assents, and the president
can't get money to support it unless
congress agrees.
To Abolish Court.
Nobody doubts that the court will be
abolished very soon after the Wilson
administration gets around to that task.
But whether anything of-the sort will
be taken up at the extra session is
doubted. The last special tariff session
undertook to suppress all extraneous
legislation, and it is likely that will be
the program of the special session that
will open five months hence.
The matter of stralgtening out the
tangle of commerce jurisdiction may
be called especially to president-elect
Wilson's attention, in order to get
something done as soon as possible.
Without doubt, according to Demo
cratic leaders and interstate -commerce
authorities, the outcome of -such spe
cial attention would be abolition of the
court.

Over 200,000 Professional Fishermen Fishing

tut means wiimn nis reacu. -a.i tiic
beginning he derived nourishment from
those which were cast upon the shore
or were easily within his reach In the
shallow water. As his intelligence in
creased, he built boats and devised
fishing implements that enabled him
to capture larger, finer fish from
deeper waters. With this progress came
also a taste for the adventure and j
part in the lives of fishermen.
In the United States fishing was
probably the earliest industry put into
operation by the settlers. The rivers
in colonial times 'were full of fish
which could be snared or caught even
at times when the nearness of Indians
rendered the noise of the hunter's rifle
inadvisable. As far back as 1624 the
American colonists sent back to Eng
land ships laden with choicest fish and
the earlier Dutch traders dealt in fish
from their first settlement of the
country. The indians themselves had
depended largely upon the streams for
their fish supply, but it was the early
settlers who brought with them the
knowledge of the value of the deep sea
food products.

Burn Bridges and Attack a
Train on rMexican Central
South of Here.
COMBINING TO
ATTACK JUAREZ?
Refugees arriving last night on a
marooned passenger train reported
farther destruction of the Mexican
Central railway below Juarez by reb
els, who fired into the train on which
200 persons were riding, among them
many American women and children.
The bullets struck high on the coach
es, injuring none, but causing a panic
among the women passengers. Bridges
were burned ahead and behind the
train and it was necessary to build
temporary track before proceeding to
the border.
The rebel general, Marcelo Carraveo.
Is operating below Juarez with SH
men. He apparently is awaiting a
junction with Gen. Antonio Rojas, who
nas aDout tne same number, and with
In Salazar. who Thursday took the
port or. .raiomas on tne Mew Mexico
border. After this mobilization of
forces, the rebels are expected to move
on Jnarex. defended by leas than 600
federal troops, with only two machine
gum).
Passenger Starts Trouble.
The shooting into the Central train
should hardly be blamed on the rebels,
tbe passengers say. Some misguided
American railwaymen perched in the
"lookout" of the caboose sighted the
rebels and fired in their direction.
There was a small guard of federal
troops on the train and this naturally
drew the rebel fire. The federals final
ly jumped from the train and fired
into, the prairie, but did not hit any
rebels.
It was at the station of San Jose
that the first burned bridge was
Sighted. The fire was put out by the
