Lokdow, Dec. 14. The success which bat
thus far attended the gas company's resist
ance of the strikers through the compara
tive eese w ith which they have lieen able to
obtain more than enough men to fill the
places of their old hands, has driven the lat
ter to an extreme of desperation, wbicb

They Had No Leader.
Their lack of a leader, too, is shown In
tbeir faulty organization and tha total ab
sence of discipline which characterizes tbeir
movements. There aeetns to be no man
among them upon whose directions tbey im
plicitly rely and the jealously existing anions
the would-be leaders is fatal to the little
order and unanimity of purpose remaining
in tueir ranks, in fact the movement is fast
losing tlie dignity ot a strike, and as rapidly
exhausting the patience of the police and the
Thieve and Rough employed.
It is stated that among the new men em
ployed by the company are a number of
thieves and roughs, whose sole object in bp-
flying for work was to seek oooortunitv
lor pillage. This is probably true, but this
element is not of sufficient strength to cause
me company much anxiety, or to eive real
izatiou to the hopes of the strikers that their
cbances will lie improved by disorder with
in the works. Those of the new men against
whom suspicion rests are being closely
watched, and toe likelihood of their resort
ing to unlawful acts is very remote.
A GERMAN SOCIAL SENSATION.
Arrest of a High-Toned Procure Whose
Victim Were Alio Hlgh-Toned.
London, Dec. 14. Great excitement has
been caused in high circles in Berlin by the
arrest of a woman occupying an exalted posi
tion in society on the well sustained charge
of Isiing a procuress. It is learned that ahe
haa been engaged in her nefarious pursuit
for several years, her operations being con
fined to pandering to the lubricity of uien of
high social standing, most of her victims
being also or the better class. Extraordinary
efforts are making to suppress the details
and prevent a public trial of the woman.
w hile on tbe other hand there is a strong
dispoaitionon the part of nianv. who see in a
public exposure of the scandal opportunities
to crusii rivals and revenge themselves upon
real or lancici enemies, to force a trial

Henry Crawford Charged with At

-Points la the Case.
Chicago, Dec. 14. For two daya past
two prominent Indiana lawyers Lew Wal
lace Jr , and A. W. Hatch have been at tbe
Grand Pacific hotel ou a secret mission, ex
traordinary measures having been taken to
prevent publicity. The object of the visit of
Mourn. Wallace and Hatch was manifested
yesterday afternoon when they nppeared in
Judge tire-ham's chamliersand laid before
the Jude charges of a seu-atinnal character
against Henry Crawford, the well-known
Chicago lawyer and railroad speculator.
Tlie accusations against Mr. Crawford are
in brier that in ls5 he bought tbe
Midland railway of Indiana for
40,000 at a foreclosure sale, and within a
short time thereafter originated a scheme
for floating bonds for lo,uo0,U00 upon a
road the value of whose rolling stock, right-of-way
and ail other assets is not to exceed
17.",0o,l. Fraud of a bold and ingenious
kind is charged against him, ami on a por

Messrs. Wallace and Hatch represent the
Loan and Investment company of New York,
which claims to 1 a victim of Mr. Craw
ford's railroad financiering to the extent of
$l"a),ouo, and is tlie first to complain. They
arrived here Wednesday with a bill in chan
cery filed in the United States district court
at Indianapolis, but suppressed and with
drawn from the files to lie secretly present
ed to .'udge GreshanL
Wanted the Hooks Seized.
They represented to the court Thursday
that Craw ford ha.l obtained the money from
the Loan and Investment comany by false
pretenses and fraudulent representations,
the road being in a rotten and demoralised
condition, and tbat to substantiate their
charges tbey must secure possession of the
Midland company's books. This could be
done only by an ex iai-te order for their
seizure, because it was feared that if the de
fendants were notified they would destroy or
secrete the books.
Had to Give Away Their Case.
Judge Gresham decided that notice must
be given to Henry Crawford, the lawyer
and president of the road, before any order
could lie made. Henry Crawford, president,
was found to lie out of Chicago, but his sou,
Henry Crawford, Jr., gcueral siieriutendent
of the road, was served and npoered in
court, securing a continuance of the hearing
until to-day, when Henry Crawford, Sr., is

consequence nothing was accomplished but
