that the latter change involves a decided
increase of interest on the part of the pub
lic or that European precipitation has
snmed any real proiiortions. Commission
bouses have been somewhut more ac
tive. The essential diHerence between
tho condition of speculation during
tbo last few days and the market as it
was for some weeks before is that the
traditur. instead of being confined to a few
stocks iu which manipulative influences
are supreme, has extended to securities in
different parts of the list and that railroad
shares in particular have been rescued from
the neglect to which they have been sub
jected. The movement of prices, while not
rapid, has been more general, ana would
apiMtrently indicate that ieadiug operators

McNaaght of New York occupied the at

the consequences of a stride must be
taken into consideration in (determining
when or not a set of men bad a lawful
privilege to strike; and inasmuch as the
majority of the strikes have been accom
panied by lawlessness and destruction of

nition or the Word "Striae" Argument
Made by Spence for the Employes.
Milwaukee, March 5. The arguments
on the motion to modify the Northern Pay
fie injiinctional order case are concluded
and Judge Jenkinshos taken the matter un
der advisement. John C. Spooner, for the re
ceivers, and I W. Spence, for the labor
organizations, ocertpicd an entire after
noon with their arguments. The impor
tant feature of the proceedings was the
admission made by Spooner that the in
junctions! writ ought to he modified.
Spooner said: "So far as this order re
strains men from conferring with the em
ployes or advising, recommending or sanc
tioning their qnitting the service of the
receivers it is perhaps too broad, as yonr
honor bos suggested, and is liable to be
misconstrued. In this particular, perhaps,
it ought to be modi Bed."
A Modification Looked for.
It is expected that Judse Jenkins will
modify his order because of this likelihood
of misconstruction. It was never intend
ed, both Attorneys McNaught and Spooner
said in their arguments, to prevent the
mployes of the Northern ltic'.Cc com
pany from quitting, as is generally report
ed, but was intend --d, they said, to pre
vent a conspiracy cripj-ling the property
of the road. Speaking of t he rights of the
court to issue the orders McNaught. gave
an exhaustive resume of the Jndse Pardee
decision and took np the ruling :f Judge
Dundy. Here, he said, was neother in
stance where the course of Judge Jenkins

Definition of the Word "Strike."
Referring to the meaning of tlioword
'strike," McNaught said that tlie oppos
ing attorneys were wrong. His definition,
and the one that shoukl to rightly applied
to the case, was given by Anderson and
recoguized by the-iHiUreme court of ap
peals 01 .ew lofK, aa,ioiioKs: A strike
is a combination aJnonV; laliorers, or those
m ployed by others! to compel an in
crease in wages, a chalice in the hours of
labor, a change iu th Jmnner of conduct
ing the business of tie proiierty, or to
enforce some particular policy in the chnr-
lactoror number ef-ti employed, or the
Would Consent til Mndifiratloti.
Jndge Jenkins wana-d to know if the
language of the restral ;ng order couid be
so construed as to prev.nit the chiefs from
advising the men to ictve the service qui
tly and peaceably. McNaught replied
that it was not so intended, but he wanted
the men to net as they wanted to in the
matter without the advice of anyoue. If
thct. rmsof the preset t writs were too
comprehensive he was rriiiiiig that a modi-
ucallou be granted.
AS. IO THE RIGHT TO QUIT.
Spooner Asserts That It Is Limited by
the Equities of the Case.
Ex-Senator Spooner, of counsel for the
receivers, followed McNaught. In opening
he said he agreed with McNaught that it
there was anything in the injunctional or
der which was suscept ible of misconstruc
tion or invaded Lny body's riglits the court
would strike it out. No document is to be
const ru-d ui.!e,ss by reading it all, and it
is unfair to ask fur a c u Aruction on on
isolated sentence. He asserted that no
where in the writ is there anything which
prevents the men from qr.ittiu;? the service
f the company, lbe rhzht to quit lias its
U;n:laliou which are roouguized the world
over, it bos limitations which anse out of
the equities of the case. -
Trainmen cannot abandon a train or
leave it in dancer or w here it will endanger
the lives of others. Continuing. Stxxmcr
said: "Your honor did not stute it too
broadly w hen you said every one of tl-.cm
could quit and go to Texas. Von tnicht
have added or stay where you are." The
injunction, Spooner m.-tiutained, merely
restrained a conspiracy for the purpose of
crippling the roK-rty-of the road, and no
men or set of men not engaged in such a
conspiracy fall within tbk meaning of the
IUJIIUCIIOU. . . f
'The idea that a eonrtwl equity lias not
the power to restrain a sjonspiracy to crip-
pic tue property in the nhnds of the court
is startling. It is also strange to say that
there is no difference between men quit-
tuig aud a strike. In this case it would
mean a cessation of work on the part of
l'J.OOO employes for thei purpose of crip
pling lbe proierty ands forcing acquies
cence to the demands fat modification of
the schedules and rules approved by the
court without any apneauto the court."
J . n . e-pcuce,forthe peUtioner.discoursed
of the meaning of "oonspirac," saying
mat its esseutial clement was criminal in
tent. The petition on which the injunc
tion was granted did not show- that the
men had any criminvl latent iu leaving
the road. If the men left the road it was
only because of a reduction in wages. He
maintained that the iden had as much
right to conspire as the stockholders of the
Northern Iltcilic hud. V hat they wanted
to know was whether the men had a risht
to strike on the legitimate liuesof what
Mivjf i-vuniueruu a striice.
Spence said the men were as much op
posed to violence as were the receivers.
They wanted to settle ttttir differences by
arbitration. "They do not do. continued

present it to your bonor for approval am
tbeu come to the wen, shove it in their
laces and say: 'Now, you have to take
your medicine.'" Spence said the contract
relations between the receivers and the
men were destroyed whan lacy changed
the schedule, - .
Continuing, Spence said that it had not
been shown that the injunction was in one
way nceeeaory and it was only secured to
help a reduction in wanes. It was purely
and simply a matter of dollars and cents.
The injunction had been granted without
giving the men a hearing; it was not
brought properly before tbacourt; and had
the men been given a Inatriugcortain parts
of it would hare been exmuueed by Uia
