Toledo, M:irch 1. The powers of the
United States court have a train been called
into exercise in the trouble between the
Ann Arior railway atul its striking em
ployes. At IVtrri: .Tiulge Taft, on appli
cation of II. W. Abiiiey, manager of the
Ann Arbor, grantfi a temporary injunc
tion restraining OLiieN Arthur and Sargent
from ordering :i nem-itl strike of railroad
employes or in any way :nciting a boycott
afiaint the Ana Arb.T.
Nurpri.-ieil the ltr-tlierhoo'l.
This order was scivc.l Tut night on the
brotherhooii lenders atui created no small
surprise anions she strikers. It is made
returnable on March iT, when Arthur and
Sfarirer.t will W- oblicd to appear before
the federal court in this city to show cause
why they should not be 3 restrained.
Snin;r hlff Arthur for Damages.
A set-r-nd surprise wa sprang upon Chief
ArthiK-'when iw was served with the pa
pers in a suit tiled by the Ann Arbor com
pany whereby it seeks to recover in a sum
of $3i,(M .!;i:i;::s :i'!reed to have been
sustained by ceriain .V'eeil acts of Ar
thur. That cerit'.t-::: in when seen last
night had or.ly to say ti.at he proposed t'j
oliey the laws.
Kreielit lluiiilleit and Ignored.
The commercial feature of the strike is
nrichan;:ed. Freight was offered by the
Ann Arlnir to the Pennsylvania and
Wheeling and Ijike Krie roads yesterday,
the foriutr taking sixty-five cars without
any objection n the ;;irt of any of its em
ployes. The Whei-Liu- did not move any
of its consi jnr.ifnt and it is reported that
the enninee rs ou that mad will refuse to
handle it. Chiefs Arthrr and Sargent have
left the city, leaving the manipulation of
the strike in the bancs jf a local committee.
Statement by Arthnr and Sargent.
A statement was issued yesterday signed
by Arthnr and Sargent in which the
charge of betraying the men is distinctly
made against Labor Commissioner Kirkby.
They say that he was plainly told that the
agreement must include the retnrn of all
the strikers to work, and that he gave
them to understand that it would be all
right, and then went to work and accepted
a compromise, leaving the matter to the
master mechanic, a man he himself said
he would not trust. The statement con
cludes with the proposition to submit the
question in dispute to any three general
managers in the city of Toledo or else
where, and abide by their decision.
CHICAGO RAILWAY TROUBLES.
The Law's Vengeanee on One Who Got His
WAsnLvros. March 15. Howard J.
Schneider, the miscreant who forced a girl
to marry idni, ill-treated her until she left
him, and then, meeting her and her brother
on the street shot and killed both of them,
was taken eowerinsc and craven to his
justly merited reward at the prison here
yesterday morning. His friends were rich
and powerful and exhausted every means
in the attempt to save his life, but failed
signally, although the plea of iusanity was
made. The opinion, however, on this
point was that the insanity was shammed.
Fraud as Well a Oastard.
There may also Lave been a general con
viction that death is the best thing for
those people whose insanity leads them to
such brutal and bloody criu.es like it is
best for a mad dog. At any rate he wai
hanged yesterday and few peop: whi
know what his Scrims wa? will feel that
any injustice was done. It was also de
veloped after he knew that he must die
that he had be?n shamminsz madness, for
there was no doubt in anybody's mind
who saw him jesterJ.ty that he was per
What Ha Il.n;e.l For.
The crime he committed took place Jan.
31, IS'. '2. The victims were Amanda 3.
Schneider, his young wife, and her brother,
Frank Hamiink. Schneider forced Miss
Hamlink to marry him. The marriage wat
kept secret for three months. The union
was an unhappy one and the wife tied from
her husband's cruelty and sought refuge
in her father's house. n the night of the
murder Schneider met his wife and her
brother on the street returning from
church. He accosted her and the two mcu
had some words. Schneider drew a re
volver and fired five shots. Frack Ham
link was killed instantly and Mrs. Schnei
der received three bullets in her body and
died three days later. The murderer threw
a revolver at the foot cf Hamlink to con
vey the idea that the killing was done in
DEATH OF JULES FERRY.
Meeting of Managers to Consider Another
Demand for Wages.
Chicago, March IS. Another importnit
session oi the General Managers' associa
tion was held yesterday for the purpose of
considering the demands of the locomotive
engineers of the Santa Fe and those of the
conductors and trainmen of the Grand
Trunk for an increase of pay. When these
demands were made of the officials of the
roads immediately concerned they were
immediately referred to the General Man
agers' association, the agreement being
that common action is to be taken on all
Sent to a Special Commtttee.
The demands were referred by the meet
ing to a special committee which acted
upon them yesterday afternoon, but their
decision will not be announced until tue
next meeting of the association, probably
some time next week. Railroad oflicials as
sert they have no fear of a strike although
there is little doubt that the decision will
be against the men. They say also that
they are refusing an increase for the reason
that it is impossible to pay it under present
Xotiee of Reduction of Wages.
Pittsbl'KO. March 13. The management
of the Elba Iron works, Fran kst own, has
served notice of reductions in all depart
ments, to go into effect next week. Last
June the firm refused to recognize the
Amalgamated association and since that
time have operated the plant with non
union men, although paying union prices
for labor. The price of puddling has bean
reduced to f3 per ton. The non-unionists
are decidedly indignant and threaten to
quit work should the order be enforced.
Of No Tolitlcal Significance.
Rome. March 18. A bomb was exploded
by some, one unknown in the Mattei pal
ace, where the United States minister lives.
It was felt that the incident might be taken
as an insult to the United States and the
minister of foreign affair immediately
called on Minister Potter to assure him
that no political significance should be at
tached to the occurrence and to express the
government's profound regret thereat.
Minister Porter replied that he felt certain
that the bomb was not intended as an in
sult to the United States and that he
should take no notice of the matter. Little
damage was done.
Popular Sentiment with Harris.
New YoKK.March 1. Recorder Smyth's
adverse decision may not mean death for
Carlyle V. Harris. A mass meeting is to
be held in Madison Square Garden next
week and a popular demand will be made
on Governor Flower for a full and free par
don. One of the most famous lawyers in
New York it may be Joseph Choate will
preside. Howe & Hummell have already
received letters from hundreds of the lead
ing lawyers, politician and philanthropists
of the city.

I The Krainrnt Frenchman Passes Suddenly
to the Other Shore.
Pahis, March IS. Never since the death
of Gambetta has Paris been so impressed
as at the news of the sudden decease of M.
Jules Ferry, president of the senate, which
I took place last evening. Only three even
ings ago he was at the opera and Thursday
he presided over the senate. Hundreds of
politicians called at thehouseaad inscribed
their names in the visitor's book. He was
attacked before midnight Thursday with
suffocating spell, but was relieved by phy
sicians and slept until 9 a. m. yesterday.
Later the attacks came on again and con
tinued until a few moments liefore death,
which was apparently painless.
Cansed by an Old Wound.
M. Ferry's death was caused by heart
disease. The affection of the heart from
which M. Ferrv suffered was due to the
effects of a bullet striking a rib near the
base of the heart at the time he was attack
ed by Aubertin in 1S37. He was born at
Saint Die in 1?32, and was a lawyer by pro
fession. He took an active part in the stir
ring events that closed the last empire and
those of the establishment of the republic.
He was chief of the ministry in 17?. but in
was retired and until his election to
the chair of the senate two weeks ajjo had
been in the back-ground politically.
BRIGGS AND SMITH SNOWEO UNDER.
A Qallot Taken on Their Heresy Cues
by a Cincinnati Falter.
Cincinnati, March : The ballot of
the Presbyterian ministers on the Briggs
and Smith heresy cases an.l on the doctrine
of biblical inerrancy, inaugurated some
time ago by The Cincinnati Pit. is prac
tically complete. I3ricc:s and rrmith are
overwhclmipgly defeated -y a majority
equal to that in the last Fresbyterian gen
eral assembly at PortJaud. The Eible is
also indorsed as a bock practically without
errer and containing the true messages
God to man. Higher criticism as expi lined
by Professo- Hriggs is condemned as de
structive and as an aid to infidelity.
How the Vote Was Taken.
Blank ballots were sent to every twelfth
Presbyterian minister whose name was
found upon the church roll in the general
assembly's minutes fjr ls9i Of the ?-j bl
lots received 2:J9 endorse the deliverance u.
the general assembly at Portland on the
inerrancy of the scriptures. Acainst Jthi
vote stand eighty ballots from ministers
who do not approve of tiie deliverance, and
are mostly on the side of Professors
Briggs and Smith. A dozen or more of
the dissenters declare, however, their faith
in the Bible as an inerrant book, but claim
that the genera! assembly at Portland
overstepped its rightful powers.
Hills Passed at Madison.
Madipox, Wis., March l4 The sen

idays a year in the state prisons, and mak
