GOVERNOR ALTUKLO'S' Is TEST.
Some IVople at Clilrago Intel viewed and
What They any.
CniCAOO, Juno 4. Governor Altgold's
hot U tter fell on Chicago capitalists and
l'opulists like a bomb. So much hotter
is this prouunciamcnto than the weather
that soma men actually felt cool by con
trast after reudiug it. liut others didu't..
Others telt even hotter after perusing tho
epistle. Judge Woods, of tho United
States circuit court, is ono of tho victims
of Governor Altgold's w ith. He Is tho
jude who issued the injunction for tho
violation of which ho sentenced D.'bs and
tho latter' eight companions on tho di
rectornto of tho American Railway
Union to jail for six months. Jud-o
Woods was in his chambers when n re
porter asked htm what ho thought of tho
1 haven't any openlon to oxpress," re
plied tho judge. "I can only say that a
reporter from a morning paper called on
mo last night and nttomp ted to interview
mo fin the letter. 1 refused to talk. Alt
Held is governor. 1 am judge. It ho
wants to talk, let him; 1 don't." Judgo
Wixxls then n.-it proceeded to glvo soma
expert views on tho subjeci of injunc
tions "Yes, it ts true thut Governor Alt
' (reld say there is exeat danger of gov
ernment in the future by injunction. I
don't think so. I suppose, though, that
In spite of Governor Altgeld's opinions
on tho subject, whenever tho United
t-tatrs courts li il l that t hero ts a proper
caso for issuing an injunction ono will lie
'What Is a 'proper case' for an injunc
tion. Judgo Wood?"
AVoil," replied tho judgo slowly, as ho
hesitated for a moment, "the occasion
lutt summer when tho D.'lis Injunction
Was granted was a proper case."
l'resideut C. I. Hutchinson was ono of
tho hot men. Ho had not finished read
ing tho governor's remarks, because ho
crew so wroth. Ho said it was very bad
Lawyers are not at nil prepared to ad
mit tho proportion that trial by jury Is
nienuoed by tho decision. crank
Wnlker Mid In regard to this: "Thcro Is
no new principle set forth in the decision.
It has vxlMfd from the tlmo of K'.ng
John nnd tho Magna Charter. It hap
pened in this instaiico to bo applied on a
larger scnlo nnd to a new cose. Where
owners become Insolvent nnd tho court
takes possession of tho property it has a
right to uso its process: for tho protec
tion of tho interests of creditors. That
Is nil it did in this caso."
Clarence fc. Harrow, who was a Debs
attorney, talked as lollows: "It is re
freshing to see that ono man, occupying a
high ollieir.1 position, is still fearless
enough to give his convictions uiwn pub
lic questions. It is almost inconoelvablo
that tho American puople, with their tra
ditional love for liberty, should allow tho
courts of this country to destroy tho right
of trial by jury; to placo the great mass
of people of tbo United States wholly
within their power.
"Whntcver any lawyer or newspaper
may say to tho contrary, hereafter any
judge may issuo an order against any
man forlldding any unlawful act and
then this judge, without the aid of a
jury, may fend this man to prison. Ihe
ancient right of trial by jury lias oecn no
solutely abrogated in tbo United Mates
and tho peoolo of this country oro so
blindly given over to tho worship of gold
that they do not care'

1'ith of a Few Remarks by F. B. Condert
on the Silver Ourellon.
New YoiiK, Juno 4. I'rwlerlo K.
Coudert, tho legal representative in this
country of the govern meut of France,
keeps a sharp eyeni financial eruditions
both in this country and Kuropo. He
thinks the United Stains Is "boss" of the
situation ns to silver. Ho says the "l'op
tillstlc spirit which is abroad throughout
tho west and south is such that it cannot
be Ignored, ana it tho fset becomes evi
dent that the nations of Europe intend to
refuse any relief the Etorm will break.
The result would undoubtedly be fitian
cical revolution and loss to tho United
ijtotce, but it would bo ruin to Kutope."
This because, says Coudert, that if Eu
rope does not agree to "bimetallitin" it
will "have to face a certainty that tho
United States will do business on a silver
basis." "I tell you they are afraid to
tempt providence too long. They nro just
waking np to this fact, and the prudenco
of tho financiers of England and the con
tinent will force the conclusion that sil
ver must bo recognized as a currency or
Ley will bo forcl to recognixa it."

this decision and the largo number of
persons involved tho Harleyoung case
