THOSE ARRESTS IN NICARAGUA.
Our State Department Inclined to Think
Washinutox, Aug. 31. The state de
partment lias received no advices from
Milliliter Ilaker in reference to the arrest
of two American citizens at ISIuefields.
Three dispatches have been sent him by
the department, the first notifying him
that the report of the arrest hud Lecn
received and the second giving him in
structions. The instructions are intende:!
to cover all contingencies aud give the
miuUter authority . to take any action
which may protect Americans. It is stated
at the department that there is no neces
sity to supplement these instructions bv
uuythiug more, as liaker has full power
unuer in use already sent.
Secretary Gresham is at a loss to un
derstand why uothiug has Iieen received
from Uaker, aud a tuird lesmtch has bsen
sent which asks the minister for a full
report of the uflair aud what action he
has taken. It has been intimated very
strongly to the minister that the nvrest
seems to have been unjustifiable aud that
reports thus far received, though very
meacrc, conlirui this view. A response
is expected from Minister liaker very
Yield of Western Crops.
Chicago, Aug. St. Lyman J. Gage,
president of the First national bunk, lias
issued a crop report. The data is fur
uibhed bim by bankers throughout the
western stutes. It is asserted that the
report is impartial and correct. From it
is learned that the western erojis, as a
general thing, are about two-thirds the
uverage yield. Figures given as to prices,
however, show that the producer will
have more money than in the usual years.
The western parts of Kansas aud Ne
braska, be says, will Buffer severely, as
the crop failures are almost complete.
Many points iu Iowa report the same con
dition, though the baukers who collected
the figures declare that the farmers are
able to ataud the loss.
Southern Development Convention.
Washington, Aug. 31. The southern
delvelnpment c-ouveutiou has begun a two

outgrowth of the recent movement fos-t.-rd
by northern and southern business
men to provide means for facilitating
combinations of capital and energy to de
velop the great resources of the south.
An organized method for investigation
aud development has beeu felt by business
men to be the greut requisite for the
furtherance of southern interests. It is
iuteuded by means of this convention to
evolve a plan for united action by repre
sentatives of all the southern states.

HOWARD IS HEARD
In Explanation .of His Speech
DID APPLY AS EPITHET TO PULLIIAN
But It Was from Force of Habit aa. It
Were Did Not Tropeee to Help Han
the Baron A Mis ake as to the Subject
of Conrpllng- Tin Tactics Some Ques
tions Propounded Switchmaa Slooney
Gives His Experience.
Chicago, Aug. 81. The most interesting
testimony before the labor commission
was that given by Vice Presideut Howard,
of the A. K. U., and William li. Mooney,
a switchman. Howard was present to ex
plain his remarks to the meeting at Bine
Island, as stated by the witness Sanders
and others. Howard began by some com
ments on railway vernacular. He aaid
that the use of opprobrious epithets to one
another, even between ;the best of friends,
was common among railroad workmen,
and as no insult was meant no offense was
taken. By this custom Howard explained
his use of a vile name regarding Pullman
at the Blue Island meeting. "I did say
that Pullman was a and ought to
be hung. But I did mrt. say," continued
Howard, "that I would like to be oue to
pull on the rope. I did not use the term
against him out of any wish to degrade
him or bis family.
I'roper Use of Coupling PI as.
"As to the statement made by several
men that I advised in my speech that
coupling pins should be used on men who
took the places of strikers I was not cor
rectly quoted." Howard found it neces
sary to go iuto a rather extended discus
sion on labor organizations to explain his
remark about "tapping certain jteople on
the bead with coupling pins." "Perhaps
you may be surprised," said Howard, "but
I claim to lie a Christian gentleman, and
I lirnily believe tbut religious iiersecutiou
nas ueeu tue great cause ot labor's failure
in its contests with capital." Having this
religious matter iu view he advised that
the emissaries of aaid persecution be
watched, and that if they ever fonnd "one
of those sleuths of hell trying to inject
the poison of division on the ground of re
ligion I hope some one will have the nerve
to take a coupling pin aud tap that
snoozer on the head and put him to sleen
Wanted Some Questions Asked.
Howard then prouueed a series ot ques
tions that lie wanted the general mana
gers to reply to. They were: Did your
company have a contract with the govern
ment to haul the mails? Did this con
tract depend on your ability to haul Pull
man cars on your mail trains? Hid your
contract with the Pullnian companv
ohliizo vou to haul thr .tr. - -
traiut.? Were the two contracts iu any
- .. -
way de)ieudeut ou each other? He also
wanted George M. Pullman asked if he
hud beeu threatened with a boycott by
the railways if be listened to his striking
employes. As to all these questions Ker-
uan thought the replies were self-evident
or that they had been fully uuewered.
Kuows There Ik a DlavklisU
Witness knew the railways kept a black
list for he had helped to beat it, the only,
but sure, way being for the men to change
his name and apply for work. The A. li.
U. had secured the all iniportaut arrests
of rioters aid the railways had done little
or nothing iu thutliue. He could bring
buudreds of witnesses to prove the ex
istence of a blacklist and its use by the
roads; he could also show that the rail
road compauies had conspired to cause
trouble to givo them a pretext to crush
the American Railway Uniou. He would
prove the service of the A. 1L V. in hav
ing rioters arrested by Mayor Hopkins,
Inspector Shea and other officials.
Deputy Marshal Wade's Experience.
Stewart Charles Wade, au employe of
the legal department of the Rock Island
road, said that at the beginning of the
strike he was a newspaper reporter. Sub
sequently he was a captain of deputy-
uuited States marshals engaged by tue
Rock Island road. Wade told how he
went aioug the Rock Island tracks with
Mayor Hopkius and other officials on July
5, and related what be saw of obstruc
tions on the tracks. His opinion was that
the blocked condition of the tracks was
caused by persons thoroughly familiar
with railroading. The police, in Wade's
opinion, were entirely inefficient until
after Mayor (Hopkin's special orders bad
REPORTED BLUE ISLAND MEETING.
Switchman Mooney Tells What He Knows
of the Turbulence.
W. R. Mooney is a switchman, and the
man wiio reparted the doings at the Blue
Isl ai d meeting to General Manager St.
John. His testimony as to the meeting
did not differ materially frem that of the
other witnesses. He voted to strike ba
cause the others did. Witness was work
ing for the Rock Island road at the time
the strike began. He was discharged for
alleged activity iu the strike aud was ar
rested ou the cburge of having assaulted
a man at the 11. uo Island robin! liouse, of
which , offense witneg-s .declared he was in
nocent. Replying to orthi.igtou wit
ntss said he iiad made a statement to a
Hock Island detective of what he knew of
the trouble at Blue Island because by
doing so he. might save bis family from
"Do you know J. Tnyloi ?'' asked Worth
ington. "I do."
"What is his occupation?" "B.-fore the
strike be was a switchman, but since then,
I Ues, bis occupation is laying 'round
looking for a job."
Witness detailed the iucidents of the
fight at Blue Island on June 30, when
some 400 deputy marshals stood by and
saw their chief, Logau, beaten by the mob
without attempting to rescue him. Wit
ness went iuto the crowd aud saved Logan.
Moouey told of several attacks on work
men, one of whona named Malooey bad
beeu covered with whitewash by the
strikers. Tbeu be said: ' I was sitting in
a saloon down at Blue Island, playing
cards with two strikers named Norton
and Davidson. They were pretty full and
talked rather freely. We made reference
to the burning of cars the uight before
aud Norton said Davidson started it.
'Yes, and I'll start another,' said David
son. 'If the fire last night had just got
around to that car of oil it would hav
ROCK ISLAND, ILL,, F ID AY, AUGUST
raised consuierahie trouble
for about gvc minutes.'
" If you lellows dou't win the strike ft
won't be my fault,' said Norton. 'While
you fellows have been asleep I've been
working. I take a United b;ates mar
shal's star nnd commission aud go wbere
ever I please among tlio cars and get all
the tobacco aud beer 1 want.. I'n take
yoa fellows along and we can do what we
piease and aot get caught.' "
One Hurley, a fireman, told witness that
there wotlil be a fire in the cars at West
PiillniNn, nl that night there were many
cars burned at West Pullman. Hurley
also iidvi-wd the crowd to pav no a Item ion
to the United States court's injunction.
Mooney admitted that Detective Mc.da
hon, of the Rock Island, had promised, to
secure bis release from jail i ho wrulu
testify to what he knew. He was under
"iOO bonds ou the charge referred to above,
of which he suid be was uot guilty and
could prove an alibi.
He said that Deputy United States Mar
shal Bull had takeu his force from the
round house to permit the strikers to get
into the liouse. The striker embraced
the opportunity and beat the new men.
W. F. Guyou, a former Uuited Press re
porter, test i lied to the burning of cars at
the work of rioters who were not str.k era.
All the talk of the strikers was for pi-ace
and tliey did yoeman service iu keeping
the peace when they could.
The ditching of the train at Blue Island
was caused, in Giiiun's opinion, by the iu
compriency of the master mechanic, whe
was running the locomotive, which he
could not control. Tue strikers at Blue
Island prevented a crowd of brickmakert
from overturning a box car, and advised
the mob uot to interfere with the train, ai
no Pullmans were attached.
