The consul general ears: "The cloud
Which overshadows American railway sew
rurltiea In ttcrmanv has been raised main
ly by the revelation of the past two yean
concerning the management of sereral
landing railway properties. German in
vectors were heavy losers, and their losses
served to call the attention of the peoplo
and press more sharply than ever before
to the usurpation of power and evaMoni
of responsiliillry which. It is claimed, have
become so frequent in American railway
management. European bond and share
holders have lieen informed that the power
of the president anil directors In many im
portant railway companies has become
practically omnipotent and irresponsible.
'That the accounts of an entire railway
system my he fnlsllled and Irs securities

. Chicago, Xov. 17. In the United
States district court were many labor
leaders whose names were familiar during
the strike troubles last summer. Eugene
V. Debs' Mil form was conspicuous among
the number. He and the other directors
of the American Railway union, together
with sixty other men, had been called into
court to plead to the indictments for con
spiracy and overt acts charged against
them during the great strike. When their
eases were reached, however, their counsel
gave notice that a motion to quash the in
dictments would be mode. The labor men
were represented by Messrs. Darrow.
Wade and Geeting of this city, and Judge
T. W. Harper of Terre Haute, who ap

several other defendants.

Bancroft was on hand in the Interests of
the Atchison, Tnpeka and Santa Fe rail
road. W hen the cases came up Mr. Mil
chrlst spoke for the government, stating
that the defendants had been served with
notice to plead. Mr. Darrow said that
before this was done counsel desired to
interpose a motion to quah. All the de
fendants would file such a motion and
arguments would be made on one case
only. Judge Harper asked that tbe argu
ment be sot for the first week in Decem
ber and after some discussion this was
done, the date fixed being Tuesday, Dec. 4.
Will Selrct One Indictment.
In case the motion to quash be overruled

Counsel for the government stated that
one indictment would be selected against

Kellihcr, L. W. Rogers, William Burns,
Leroy Goodwin. M. J. Elliot, John F.

formerly a fruit tree agent, who for about
two years made Grand Lodge bis home
and headquarters, while on a trip to Alma
a little over a year ago, was taken ill and,
supposedly, died suddenly. He was buried
by strangers. A few days ago his friends
decided to take up the body and removed
it to Williaiuston. When they opened tho
coffin they found that the body had turned
over, and that the hands were clutching
the hair, handfuls of which had been torn
out. The face was terribly lacerated and
torn, giving evidence of the desperate
struggle he had made to free himself from

The Diverred Woman Did Not Feel Ci
fortable Abont Her Children.
The conversation took place at a ta
ble in a Chicago restaurant within ear
shot of half a dozen persons, so it is to
be presumed that it is not to be consid
ered particularly sacred. The woman
in the brown dress had evidently just
come in from Denver. Tho one in black
had met her at the depot. There was an
animated description of the details of
the journey; what rinieshe started, how
tired she got, what a terrible draft there
was and so forth, interspersed with ex
clamation of sympathy from her hear
er. Then she leaned forward and asked
with more than ordinary intercut:. . .
"Have you seen George since?"
Her compaciou's face took on an ex
pression that seemed to betoken resigna
tion to all the evils the human race is
destined to come in contact with.
"Yea, twice." she answered.
"And tho children?"

afraid I couldn't bear it It makes no
difference how good George's new wife
is, she won't bo like an own mother to
the poor little things. It's against all
reason, you know that. "
The woman in black admitted that
tho argument was indisputable.
"And I'd never feel right again, " the
speaker continued, apparently giving
her conscience a few affectionate little
pats and lulling it to rest "When I
left George, I tried to get the children
for myself; but, yon see, I had no idea
what I should do. I knew it would be
out of the question for me to try to
straggle along with all three of them.
I had faith enough in him to believe
that he would do the right thing by
them, even though my own .life .with
him had been a perpetual martyrdom.

The Oale Dignity of m Man Wka Was Ua-

Wrlttea la the English XoveUst's Iniml
1 1 new aim for several yean before
his death. When I first made his ac
quaintance, ho was already an old man.
Ho was also, as was evident from tbe
first, a very poor man. He went abont
shabbily dressed. He carried biscuit
in his pocket to the reading room on
which he lunched or took snacks at in
tervals during the day. Perhaps be had
dinner afterward, bnt I always suspect
ed his dinner to be an uncertain and a
movable feast It was understood that
he was something in the literary way.
I got to know him by sitting next to
him day after day. We exchanged the
amenities of the reading room, apolo
gized for crowding each other with
books, abused the talkers, remarked on
the impudence of those who go to tbe
room in order to flirt and so forth.
When I got to know him better, I
made little discoveries about him, as.
for instance, that he liked a glass of
beer in the middle of the day and that
he could not afford the twopence. I may
say, not boastfully, that I was able to
offer him this little luxury. We used
to go out together for the purpose. He
was good enough to take an interest in
my work. He proved to have a consider
able knowledge of books and gave me
considerable help in this way.
One Sunday I met him in the street
We stopped to speak. He lamented the
closing of the museum on Sunday. Fot
his own part, he said, he would have
the reading room open every day in the
week. hv close the avenues of knowl
edge? Why damn the fountains and
springs of wisdom? So we walked and
talked. He was perfectly dignified in
hu manner, though his great coat was
so thin and shabby that one might be
ashamed to be seen with him. Ho stop
ped presently at the door of a house in
High street, Holborn.
"I lodge here," he said. "Will you
come up stairs and se9 my hermitage?"
I remember that he called it grandly
his hermitage. Ho led the way; the
stairs were dark and dirty; he took me
to the fifth, or fifty-fifth, floor. He liv
ed in the back attic.
"This," he said, "is the cell of the
recluse. I live here quite retired. There
are other lodgers, I believe, but I do
not know them. I live here with my
library in simplicity. The tar is whole
some at this height. "
Ho threw open the window and sniff
ed the fragrance of the neighboring
chimneys. The room was clean; the
furniture was scanty; there was no fire
in the grate; on a shelf were aliout 25
books his library. The man looked per
fectly contented with his hermitage.
There were no pajcrs ou the table,
nothing to show that he was a writer.
I do not know how he lived certain
ly he did no work at the museum bnt
he never borrowed. In ono corner stood
a wooden chest He lifted the lid and
nodded nnd laughed.
"Aha!" he said, "now I am going to
reveal a secret 1 ou didn t know, no
body at the museum knows, the people
in the house don't know, that I am
what do you think? a poet It is 30
years since I paid for the publication
of my collected poetical works. Yes,
sir, and I am going not only to commu
nicate this secret to your honor in safe
keeping but to present vou with
copy. Then, my young friend!" He pro
duced a thin volume. "I am Paul the
Wanderer." In fact, the title page bore
the legend, "Collected Poetical Work
of Paul the Wanderer."
"Thirty years," he repeated. "There
were 500 copies. The press received 50,
the public bought four; there remained
446. I have now given you one. There
now remain H't. I have bequeathed
these to the public libraries of the na
tion. Sir, you are young. You will'
yourself perhaps publish your poems.
Remember for your comfort that it
takes 00 years, or two generations,
for the noblest poets to take their
proper place. Greatness true, stable,
solid greatness, not the empty applause
given to an ephemeral favorite re
