The men say that they think Chief Arthur

would present his statement in person.
Iike Shore engineers and firemen who re

tinued in the i'nited States circuit court
yesterday. The testimony of the various
officials and ii::dercfl!ei.!s showed thvt the

the men until after they had said that they
would not ha. idle the Ann Arbor cars. The
officials intend, d that the order should be

This point the defen lints' attorneys are

However, there w:-s cue thing brought
out that may cover the gronnd and prove
that the n.en did know the existence of

legal aspec t ot the matter of the case goos

Ceased To He "Ann Arbor Freight."
General Superintendent CannifT, of the
Lake Shore, testified that he had received
a telegram from .1. W. Watson, a Iake
Shore engineer, saying: "We ask you in
the interest- of peace and harmony not
to ask Lake Shore engineers to handle Ann
Arbor freight. "I answered, said Can
nifT, "that the request could not be grant
ed, inasmuch as the business of the Ann
Arbor when turned over to ns was our
business also, and as common carriers we
were obliged to handle it by law. I called
a meeting of some-thirty-five of our engin
eers and told them that it was our duty to
transact the business. I told them that
the law was plain and if it was violated it
would be a serious matter and that some
one would be held responsible."
'Watson Tat on the Stand.
CannifT later received a telegram from
Watson stating that the brotherhood laws
must be enforced. Then Watson was put
in the, witness box and asked what rule of
the brotherhood was it that must be en
forced. "The rule that allows every man
to do as he pleases as an individual," said
Watson. The attorneys laughingly stated
that it was a strange thing for a body to
enact laws to allow men to do as they
please. Watson was asked to produce the
rule. He did not have it. He was re
quested to repeat it from memory. He
could not remember it not even the sub
stance. Finally after being hard pressed
he stated that the rule he had in mind
was to the effect that brootherhood men
must not handle the freight of any road on
which brotherhood men are out on a strike.

ARTHUR PRODUCES THE RULE.
A Witness Who Didn't Want to Give a
Direct Answer to Leading Question.
Before taking a recess Watson was in
structed to bring the boycott rule with
him when he returned, and upon the re
assembling of the court it was
produced, but not by Watson.
An affidavit was received from Chief
Arthur contianing the text of the rule. In
effect, it provides that when there is a
"legal" strike on any railway in which
brotherhood men are involved it shall be
the duty of brotherhood men on all con
necting lines to refuse to handle freight de
livered from the railway on which the
strike exists. The rule is number 12 of the
brotherhood code. Watson said that he
ordered the men on the Lake Shore to re
fuse to handle freight from the Ann Arbor
on receipt of a telegram from Arthur, de
claring a legal strike on the Ann Arbor.
Ordered Off and on Again.
Then when Kirkby negotiated a compro
mise the boycott was declared off, but was
again declared on abont March 10. He
said that the boycott rule became opera
tive three or fuur years ago. There was
no oath taken to observe the rule, but an
obligation, the words of which he could not
give even in substance. Men could refuse
to quit work without violating the rules of
the order. Questions elicited the fact that
Watson had issued orders to the effect of
those contained in rule 12 after he had
been notified of Judge Kicks' decision.
The cross-examination of the witness
brought out nothing new, and at this point
the complainant rested its case.
A DlfBcnlt Man to Corner.
Leonard Clark, a Lake Shore engineer,
was first placed on the stand for the de
fense. The counsel ot the complainant
hoped to worm out of Clark that he had
resigned his position on the Lake Shore
immediately on learning that he would be
obliged to handle six cars of freight from
the Ann Arbor. Clark endeavored to avoid
a direct admission of his resignation nnder
these cirpuBuatancea, but eventually stated
-4 feat such had been the case.
Didn't Want to Die a "Scab."
Onite a dramatic scene ensued when

Men Forced to Quit. Work and a Killing
Ci.EDE, Colo., March 23. The New York
Chance mine, one of the biggest silver pro

night fifty men from the miners' union
compelled the night force to quit work lie
cause they were only getting 3 instead of

owners laid off the day force. One hun

Ihe other covered him with a gun.

The two men then went to their boarding

The House Seems "Mighty Onoartin"
SrniXGFIELD, March 23. There was a
full attendance in the house yesterday.
The resolution to abolish Chicago justices'
courts by a constitutional amendment
was rejected for lack of a constitutional
majority. The vote by which the adverse
report on the bill requiring railways to be
elevated at Chicago was adopted was re
considered and the bill ordered to first
reading. After an attempt to reconsider
the vote on the resolution Jin regard to
Chicago justices' courts, which failed for
lack of a quorum, the house adjourned.
Some Dusiness in the Senate.
The senate was more business like and
did a good deal of work. The bill to enable
cities and towns to supply their own elec
tric plants was sent to third reading as
were those to abolish the claims commis

Bills were possed to compel highway com

providing for the payment of the last bond
of the seri.-s of lsVJ fi.OJ, and ap

Crest Funeral for Jnles Ferry.
PAI:ls, March 23. Thousands of stran
gers came to the city yesterday to attend
funeral of Jules Ferry. The weather was
perfect and at an early hour the approaches
to the Luxembourg and the route from the
eastern railway station were so densely
crowded that several companies of mounted
police were kept busy clearing the thor
oughfares. Eulogies were -delivered by
Senator Bordaux and others. There were
present a throng of the highest officials,
civil and military, and the escort was a
large bo ly of military followed by an al
most endless procession.
A Wit Interviews a Lion.
MayeXCE, March 23. Jean Dremmel, a
well-known local wit and grand master
of the carnival, whose numerous songs
are sung by all German societies the world
over, made a bet that he would enter a
ion s cage at a local museum while the
bouse was crowded. He did so in company
with the trainer and remained there for
thirty seconds. When he withdrew the
trainer placed himself in front or tne door
just in time to preveut the lioness from
striking Dremmei with her paws.
Fast Time at the Boat Race.
London, March 23. The Oxford-Cam
bridge boat race, 4.14' miles on the Thomes,
took place yesterday in the presence of the
nsual multitude of people. Oxford won
by half a length amid tremendous cheering
for the winners and loud shouts of "Well

ever made, 1S:4? and beats the best Ameri
can time which is 20:10.

Chicago, March 23. William Johnson,
an engineer on the Wabash railway, was

Johnson opened a partially filled oil tank

A Double Murder So Far.
Mrs. Frazier was dead and the baby un
conscious. Mrs. Smith was able to speak n
few words concerning the tragedy, when
she lost consciousness and died a few
moments afterward. The news of the
crime spread rapidly, and half an hour

Frazier's body swung under the tree for
