Wallace Rice, the Iteportor, Gives Tes
timony. Chicaoo, Sept. 14. Counsel for the
government in the Debt contempt case
will call all the defendants to the witness
stand and interrogate them as to the part
they took in the strike and what they did
with regard to the in unction and it al
leged violation. This Intention was made
manifest, at tha opening of the proceed
ings, for Walker stated that such was the
purpose of the government and Erwin
promptly replied that the defense wou id
decline to produce Debs. The purpose of
the government seems to be to place the
deleudant in the position of declining to
testify for fear of incriminating himself
and thus in a manner admitting that he
has been guilty of the acts charged. This
would be effective before a jury, bnt hard
ly before a judge. Judge Woods did not
rule in the matter, letting it go over for
Got a Manifesto from Debs.
Ray Baker, a reporter for The Record,
was the first witness called. Mr. Walker
handed to him a clipping from The Record
containing a manifesto to the American
public, issued by Debs on July 24 Reply
ing to Mr. Walker, Mr. Baker said that
the manuscript to the article was handed
to him by Mr. Debs in the county jtiiL
Counsel for the defense objected to the in
troduction of the article, but Judge Woods
admitted it, and Mr. Baker read the arti
cle, which was an attack on the Pullman
company, denouncing the cruel treatment
of its employes and asking the American
people to refuse to ride in Pullman cars
till the company had done justice to its
employes. Dt-bs was one of the signers.
Wanted tp Show Debs' Authority.
J. H. Elhers. night rlerk at the Lelnnd
hotel, testified that many telegrams came
to Debs' address and were handed to him,
and that he opened and read them.
v alker offered a letter signed by Debs,
Howard, Keliher, and Rogers, written to
General Manager Whitman, of the North
western company, staling that John Doyle
was authorized to represent the American
Railway Union, and askma W hitman to
give Doyle a hearing. Gregory objected
to the letter on account of irrelevancy.
"o oiler it to show the power and
authority assumed and exercised in these
matters by these defendants,-' said Wa!ker,
and the court admitted the document.
The Celebrated Wallane Rice.
The next witness was Wallace Rice, a
nerald reporter. This witness is the one
who was charged by Debs and the direct
ors of the A. R. U. with having offered to
sell the influence of The Herald to the
strikers if they would deposit their funds
in a certain city bank. The charge was
sworn to, and Rice replied by an afnXt
vit declaring the charge talae. ' In view of
the fnct that a direct issue of veracity
was raised In the case on oath it is strati ire
that Rice is still a member of the A. H.
U. During the strike Rice wa both re
porter and delegate to the A. R U. con
vention, lie testified that D.ibs presided
at the convention and made the oieniug
address, in which he said the American
Railway Union was the first labor organi
sation that was perfect; that the others
had blow-holes in their armor; that the
American Railway Uuion was btult for
war and its armament was trustworthy.
Deba Made a Fiery Speech.
Rice doscribed the scene in the A. R. V.
convention when the Pullmau boycott
was ordered. Debs had made a fiery
speech iu favor of the boycott and of vigor
ous action, and said that be would rather
see the union go to wreck in such a right
eous cause than brag idly along. After
the report of the committee previously ap
pointed to investigate the Pullmau
trouble the convention passed a motion
referring the Pullman boycott and all
matters connected with it to the officers
and directors of the American Riilway
L uion, with full power to act. A commit
tee to wait on General Manager W ickea was
appointed by Debs and lloward. Witness
did not know what had passed between
ickes and the committee.
WliMt the A. R. C President Told lllca.
Witness related an interview with Debs,
in which the American Railway Union
president said that any railway which
employed men to take the places of strikers
would have the strike extended over the
entire system. Referring to another
interview witness s.iid: "Mr. DjIk told nie
be hud decided uot to make the boycott
operative the day origiuully set, for luck of
prep-iratiou, and he also said that he
would extend the strike to tne suburban
traius of the Illinois Central." The dny
the injunction w:ts issued Deb told witness
that he had done notliiug in violation of
law, and the iujuuctiou would make no
difference in liU actions. He had seen,
IK-bs sign a paper to be sent to outside
points promising protection to all who
would quit, whether they w-ro members
of the American lt.iilway Union or not.
The cross-examination of R ce by Greg
ory developed tiie fact that the govern
ment tried to find a "squealer" iu the
rank of the Americau Railway Union of
ficers and failed.
Your carried a communication to Mr.
lloward yesterday t" asked Mr. Gregory.
"I made a suggestion to him."
"What was it im "I weut to Mr. Howard
if be would go over to Mr. Walker's office
at iris convenience and tell what lie knew.
and then would come ou the stand and tes
tify and say that he was sorry for what he
had done, the judge might deal more liu
iently with him than otherwise."
"Did you talk to Howard of his having
been ignored by the other American Riil
way Uuion cflkersr" "1 said I understood
he had a pretty hard time with them."
Mr. Gregory questioned Mr. Rice at
some length as to his controversy with
Debs over the disposition of the funds of
the order, the purpose being to show that
the witness was hostile to Debs. At the
suggeati on of n alker the court permitted
the witness to relate the transaction at
ieBgtb. Rice charged Debs with breach
of confidence in making public private
matters ana with untruthlulnaas In
lug that the witness had claimed to be an.
thorix to make a proposition to the
American Railway Union. Howard was
willing. Rice said, to make a statement
that witness ead expl ained he bad no au
thority. but Debs refused to do this

curred with undecided results.
The floods in Cores still prevent the
Chinese troops from crossing the Imchin

here says that the Kirino division of the
Chinese army has crossed the Kulin river
and that it is now holding the city of
Suhning while awaiting the advance of
