CHICAGO, Aug. 23. There were a few

labor commission yesterday, but they ran
abort for some reason. Pullman wag not
one of them, however, and it cannot be
stated that he will be, as the commission

Miles I.enles a Statement.
To make this history complete it
should be said that army headauarters
has given given out a statement relating
to some things that have been testified to
in this inquiry. When on the stand
Debs referred to a report that General
Miles, on his return to tlie city to take
charge of the United States troops, imme
diately went to the headquarters of the
general managers. The general says that
this is not correct; that he not ouly did
not go to the headquarters of the general
managers, bit- did not even know where
those headquarters were; t hat he did not
need the advice of the general managers
as to his duty. Tbe ouly intercourse he
had with the managers was an appeal
from them fur protection, which he sup
Testifies as to the Rents.
Frank AV. E. Glover, a real estate ogent
living at 3JC Michigan avenue, said he
had been asked to appear and give his
views ly a gentleman who was not con
nected with the Pullman company, but
Glover did not know that he was uot act
ing for that company. Ua could give
facts only as regarded Kensington. He
owned a subdivision there aud rented
houses iu that suburb. Jit knew nothing
about the Pullmau houses except from
the exterior. Said he: "I would con
sider from these observations that the
Pullman houses which rent for from f JM
to $ a mouth were cheaper than my
houses at Keusiugtou, which I rent for
r!i In my houses lucre are no conven
iences except ruunmg water in 9ie room.
For a decent workingman they are not in
viting. We make no repairs; the ten
ants make whatever repairs they wish.
When Pullmnn tenants have come to us
to rent our houses they invariably t.-iln
about the beaut iiul homes they left. The
surroundings of the Pullman houses are
much more desirable than mine."
Workmen Only Got Half Time.
Glover knew something of the conditions
of wages at Pullman, because some forty
men who were paving him for houses on
the installment plan had come to him at
various times aud told him that owing to
reduction of wages or scarcity of work lliey
could not pay as much us t hey had agreed
to pay. Ti.ere was but little work, they
said, but the Pullman company gave them
three days work a week aud then gave
another set of men a chance.
In his letter to Governor Altgeld de
clining the governor's Miggestiou to put
the men ou half tune so as to give more
men work, Pullmau said the company had
ttied that last winter, and the result was
to show such a small amount weekly to
each man as to give an erroneous impres
sion of tlie scale of wages. Hereafter the
policy of the company would be to employ
no more men thau it could employ stead
ily. Quite In Lave with Tnllman.
Glover did not consider the feet that
houses wera detached aud stood alone on
lots preferable to those in a block. lie
thought the six-room brick houses iu Pull
mau would cost Irom f.i,(H0 to$4,u0U, while
his owu frame cottage cost about. $i,2U0.
He thought the Pullman houses worth
much more than his. "As you go by iu
t he cars and see the beautiful grass plots
and the pleasant sttrrouudings," he said.
'1 think if 1 were a poor man 1 would sac
rifice almost anything to live iu such a de
siruble place." He added that for his
houses he was dependent on Pullmau em
ployes for tenants. The witness also said
that rents iu Keusiugtou hud uot been re
duced; he was gettiug tbe tame rent for
his houses as lor several years past.
SAYS PULLMAN MEN DRINK BEER,
Aud Inclined to the Itelief Tlmt Ueuts Are
Kot Kxot-bitant There.
Paul E. Hermes, a news aud stationery
dealer in Pullmnn, who hud worked for
six years in the Pullman tbops, was the
nexA witness. Mr. Hermes said that he.
personally, had no fault to find with the
Pullman. He left the town when the ISVj
strike occurred and did uot go b ick until
it was over. Witness has a niue-room
house iu Pullmau for which he pays !o
a liioniu. tie uiu not tniuK a similar
house could be had iu Chicago, Keusiug
tou or Koselaud for the same rent. ' I
think if many of tho men would leave
beer uud whisky aluue they would bj bet
ter off," said Mr. Hermes. The Keu
siugtou lieer wagous are passing through
1'uliuiau in a st ream all tiie t ime.
This was especially the case ou pay days.
He continued: "The Kensington saloon
keepers, K or more, have nearly all be
come rich, and all the money comes from
the Puilmau employes. Ou the otner
hand, many of the nu n are saving. When
I was working iu the Pullmau shops at ii
a day I could put away t a mouth. Y hen
1 got a little more I could save i.M a
mouth." Witness thought the Pullmnn
employes would compnra favorably with
tbe same number of men in Chicago. As
to the complaints of the foremen, this was
always the case; whether wages were high
or low there were some who would always
I grumble ut somethius.

Pullman, was questioned very closely by
otie of the commissioners concerning his
lease. He stated that his is the onlr hard-
w.tre store iu Pullman, Out says iie has no
agreement with tbe Pullmau company by
which competition in his line of business
is kept out. He tias a written lease of his
store building, b.tt there is a clause in it
by which the company can oust him on
ten days' notice. The company had re
duced his store rent voluntarily, but not
tus house rent, lie did not know any
thing about comparative routs.' lie
thought the absence of a sewer system in
Kensington made a material difference as
to desirability of residence.
W. K. McKay, a Mail reporter, and Ii.
H. At well, a News reporter, testilied as to
rioting, but added nothing new. The
News man charged much of the tnrtm
lence to the deputy msrshals. Axel
Lundgren said that in all his thirteen
years' service for the Pullman company he
had no complaiut as to wages or treat
