Petition Raised to Co.npel (he Commiv

What the Lawmaker Are loing In ?h
National Legislature Army Officer Ie
tailed to Colleges The I'ublic Building
Washington, Oct. 6. The petition
raised by Judge Charlts D Long, of De
troit, Mich., a member of the Michigan
supreme court, for a mandamus upon the
commissioner of pensions to compel him
to ray a pension Illegally suspended states
that on Sept. 25 last he was Informed by
the pension agent at Detroit that pay
ments on his claim had been suspended
"pending special medical examination tc
determine his present degree of disabil
ity." He denies that he ever received no
tice of this suspension other than as
stated, althoush he was once ordered to
report to the examining board-at Detroit,
Judge Long then states that he believes
this order was not made by the secretary
of the interior, who is empowered by sec
tion 4,739 revised statues of tve United
States, to strike from the pension rolls
names put thereon bv fraudulent repre
sentations. But even this cannot be done,
he maintains in his petition, without due
notice to the pensioner, who shall have
full opportunity to be heard.
Fifth Amendment Violated.
Judge Long further objects that such A
proceedings is in violation of the fifth
amendment to the constitution, which
provides that no citizen shall be deprived
of "life, liberty, or property without due
process of law." Hi-, pension, he claims,
is valuable property, of which be has beea
deprived without such proce-s. Speaking
of the case wtiich. is to come on hearing
on the l'Jtu. iiu-t.. Cotmnis-sicner Lochren
says: "As to the question raised whether
the commissioner hs the power to sus
pend a pennon, I will kiv that this rule is
not a new one, b has been charged against
becrelary r-nuth and myself iu the news
papers, it is an olil rule ami Iihs been in
pract.ee iu the bureau from the lieginniug.
I he gvound is taken that the act ion is con
trary to the constitution in depriving
man of his life, liberty, property, etc. Now
a iension is not property until the pen
sioner gets the money. The mtre privilege
of drawing a pension does not construe
property. " If it is a property right, even
congress could not interfere with it and
yet nobody would question for a minute
that congress can repeal all the pension
laws, if desired.
Suspension and Withdrawing.
"Particular stress appears to be lain on
the word withdraw, c-uspension is mere
ly withholding payment; withdrawing is
taking it away. Suspension of pensions
is merely a precautionary measure. If
on inquiry the person is fouud to be eut
tied to his pension he gets it in full; if
not, the government is protected during
tnat time. t-; much tsvtii ana misrepre
sentation have appeared in the newspa
pers about pensions recently thai I ai:
really glad tne matter is to come before
court lor adjudication, ii I have no pow
er to suspend a ; elision, and it is in a ir.v
duty, then I sii.-ill le lad to be relieved
tut if the court cecities t tirt I have th
power, and that it :s my du:y, then it
incumbent on me to use that power and
perform that duly. 1 um also glad that
it is Judge Long ho is to test the mat
ter, for I presume he is a man of wealth
and will have the matter carefully exam
ined. He is a lawytr hlmsCif, and a vtiy
able one. However the court decides the
case I trust it will put an end to the
director or tne mint, were favorably re
ported to the senate in executive session.
The silver men look upon the latter as a
challenge and are preparing to combat it
as effec'. ually as possible.

Washington, Oct. 6. The open legisla
tive session of the senate lasted only fifteen
minutes, and then the senate, iu accordance
with a previous agreement, proceeded to

Indianapols, Oct. 6. The rioting which
has been in progress at the Big Four shops
in lndianola was continued in desultory
fashion until shortly after 5 o'clock, when
it resulted in a running battle, resulting
in the death tf one man, James Pitts, and
the serious injury of J. C. Riley, superin
tendent of the Peoria and Eastern divi
sion. The special police weie in place
with the exception of two. who refused to
go on duty aud turned in their badges.
The boilermakers were also at work.
When it became known that the police
were back the crowd soon gathered again.
It was composed principally o" boys of
20. If a guard appeared in front of a line
of cars he was at once assailed by a shower
cf rocks and was compelled to retire be
yonJ ratine. If he passed along behind
the ca-s the boys threw rocks over or
uuJer, or If" ween the cars. Anything to
harras the siu-iials. When they were
not in siul.t ;he crowd was quiet.
The First Shot.
The specials would advance behind the
cars and. for safety sake, stand or kneel
behind the tracks. The boys advanced to
the company's line and thus got within a
few feet of one of the specials as be stooped
behind the iron wheels. Rocks fell all
around him. Suddenly the spec.al pulled
his revolver, stuck it out past the end ot
the car and pulled the trigger. The bul
let struck a boy, Bennie Stamm, on the
knuckles of the fingers of the hand that
was hurling the rocks and imbedded itself
about h p-high in the side of Charlie
Taub's drug store across the street. Stamm
hastened back among the crowd and was
immediately surrounded. As he showed
his bleeding finger a young man named
Ellis raised his arms above his compan
ions and shouted. "Men, this is too much;
them devils is shooting bovs. Who'll fol
low me over and clean 'em out!
Nut a ltrave Crowd.
He started across the street, but as less
than twentv out of the hundred followed
him he haited. and the most exciting inci
dent of the mornini; euded. The specials
were not seen asaiu and the rock throwing
c-.-ased. There was no further trouble un
til 3:l.-i o'clock, when Superintendent Riley,
of the Peoria and Eastern division, arrived
wit'i an engine and one coach to bring the
workmen and the specials into thecitv.
After thev were on the train it was stoned
hy a crowd of boys but got away. However,
it met the outbound passeuger train and
had to back down to the shops again to
take a siding. The woj-d soon spread and
a great crowd assembled. After the pas
senger passed the special again backed
upon the main track and was met with a
shower of stones and clubs. Riley ani all
the rest took refuge in the coach, except
John Stoke, special policeman, who stood
on the rear platform and emptied his re
volver into the crowd.
Took Fatal Effect, a
One shot took fatal effect upon Jamea
Pitts, a Big Four fireman residing near
by, who was on bis way home. Immedi
ately there was a howl of indignation and
stones, clubs and bullets were showered
upon the coach from the crowd. The en
gineer and fireman lay upon the floor of
the cab, the throttle was opened and the
train shot into the city. The only one hurt
upon it was J. W . Riley, division superin
tendent, w ho was struck in the neck by a
stone and seriously hurt, 'A warrant is
out for Stokes for murder, but the police
have been unable to find him. I he com
pauy has dismissed the 140 blacksmith and
machinists employed at Brighton for sym
pathy with the strikers.
