/all periods. Temporary restraint is, there
fore, as intolerable as permanent, and
:=; practical restraint by actual physical inter
; :.feT|?nce as criminal as that wMCh flows from
> : r.faneeni(?nts and organization. Any
••!j?iijßical interference, therefore, which has
Uib 6" effect of restraining any passenger, car
; : iVr thing constituting an element of inter
gJtate commerce forms the foundation for
..t.Kis offense. But to complete this offense,
as r. Iso that of conspiracy to obstruct the
: mails, tnere must exist in addition to the
resolve, a purpose of intent of criminal
pi racy. If it shall appear that two or
• m-ore persons wrongly agreed with each
; Atiier that trains carrying the malls and
...interstate commerce should be forcibly
• 'airested, obstructed and restrained, such
C >j\buld clearly constitute a conspiracy.
. •■:. "If it shall appear to you that two or
.': jnare persons corruptly or wrongfully
'."/agreed with each other that the employes
.-.-,; of .the several railroads carryirg the mails
... and interstate commerce should quit, and
..that successors should by threats, intimi
, .Ration or influence be prevented from tak
ing their places, such would constitute a
: :cpnspiificy. I recognize, however, the
right of labor to organize. Each man in
■ America is a free man, and, so long as he
:': does. not interfere with the rights of others.
: be/ha* the richt to do with that which is
;; ; hrs what he pleases. In the highest sense
.': a man's arm is his own ; ana aside from
.■■'. contract relations no one but he can di
".. rect when it shall be raised to work or
: shall be dropped to rest. The individual
option to work or to quit is the imperish
'. *ble right of a free man. But the raising
or dropping of tae arm is the
■ fesuh of a will that resides in
-■the brains. Much as we may desire that
..Such will should rerrain entirely inde
pendent, there is no mandate of law which
prevents their association with others and
response to a higher will. .The individual
jaiay feel himself alone unequal to cope
• With the conditions that confront him, or
■■enable to comprehend the myriad of con
siderations that ought to control his con
duct. : . He is entitled to the highest wage
this strategy of work or cessation from
; work may bring and the limitations upon
his intelligence and opportunities may be
such that he does not choose to stand upon
' hii own perception of strategic or other
conditions. His right to choose a leader,
. :Vhp observes, thinks and wills for him, a
: brain skilled to observe his interest— is no
; greater pretension than that which is
.^recognized in every other department of
industry. So far, and within reasonable
limits, associations of this character are not
; lawful only but are In my judgment benen
rial when they do not restrain individual
liberty and are under enlightened and con
scientious leadership.
"But they are subject to the same laws
as other associations. The leaders to
whom are given the vast power of judgine
and acting for the members are simply
within that respect their trustees. Their
conduct must be judgad like that of other
trustees, by the extent of their lawful
. authority and the good faith with which
they have executed it. No man in bis in
dividual right can lawfully demand and
insist upon conduct by others which will
. lead to injury to a third person's lawful
rights. The railroad carrying the mails
and interstate commerce has a right to
.-"the servicfl of each of its employes until
'each lawfully chooses to quit, and any
': concerted action upon the part of others to
• demand or insist, under any effective
penalty, upon their quitting, to the
injury of the mail service or the complete
transportation of interstate commerce, i
a- conspiracy, unless such demand or in
•■•' sistence is in pursuance of a lawful
authority conferred upon them by the
: men themselves and Is made in pood faith
in the" execution of sucn authority. Th**
demand or insistence, under effective
-•' penalty or threat, and injury to the
transportation of the ma Is or interstate
; commerce being proven, the burden falls
upon those making the demand or insist
■.. to show lawful authority and good faith
, In its execution.
.. "Let me illustrate : Twelve carpenters
; are engaged in building a bouse. Aside
from contract regulations, they each can
quit at pleasure. A thirteenth and four
.. teenth man, strangers to them, by con
; certed threats of holding them up to pub
. lie odium or private malice, induce them
-to. quit and leave the house unfinished.
The latter in no sense represent the former
'er their wishes but are simply interlopers
for mischief and are guilty of conspiracy
against the employer of the carpenters.
■' But if upon a trial lor such results they
■ prove that Instead of being strangers they
are the trustees, agents or leaders of the
• twelve, with full power to determine for
- them whether their wage is such that they
-ought to continue or quit, they have in
good faith determined that question, and
are not then, so far as the law goes, con
: spirators. But if it should further appear
the supposed authority was used not in
: . the Interests of the twelve, but to further
a personal ambition or malice of the two,
it would no longer justify their conduct.
Doing a thing under cloak of authority is
r not doing it with authority. The injury of
■' the two to the employer is such an instance
as would only be aggravated by their
treachery to the associated twelve, and
! both employes and employer should with
: equal insistence ask the vindication of the
law.
-', ;.. "If It appears, therefore, applying the
' illustration to the occurrences that will be
! brought to our attention, that any two or
• more persons by concert insisted or de
:;. manded under effective penalties and
• threats upon men quitting their employ
: ment to the obstruction of the mails or
'Interstate commerce, you may inquire
whether they did these act 3as strangers
'._■ it.o these men or whether they did them
> tinder the guise of trustees and leaders of
.in association to which these men be
■longed. And If the latter appears you
:.: "may inquire whether their acts and con
; duct In that respect were in faithful and
;. conscientious execution of their supposed
: ; authority or were simply a ruse of that
;■ authority as a guise to advance personal
: .-ambition or satisfy private malice. There
is. honest leadership among these, cur
-/laboring fellow-citizens, and there is
.. doubtless dishonest leadership. You
■ should Dot brand any action of leadership
;■; as done dishonestly or in bad faith unless
: it clearly so appears; but if it does so ap
-'pear, if any person is shown to have be
trayed the trust of these tolling men and
. their acts fail within the definition of
crime as 1 have given it to you, it is alike
. the interest, the pleasure and the duty of
every citizen to bring them to swift and
• heavy punishment.
"I wish again, in conclusion, to impress
, on you the fact that the present emergency
; is to vindicate law. If no one has violated
the law under the rules I have laid down,
..it needs no vindication; but if there has
been such violation, there should be quick,
■' prompt and adequate indictment.
;. "I confess that the problems which are
■ made the occasion or pretext for the pres
ent disturbances have not received the
■ consideration they deserve. It is our duty
: fts citizens to take them up, ami by candid
.• »nd courageous discussion ascertain what
Wongs exist and what remedies can be
ipplied, But neither the existence of such
problems nor the neglect of the public hith
■ trto to adequately consider them justifies
*' tie -violation of law or the bringing on of
general lawlessness. Let us first restore
peace aud punish the offenders of the law,
and then the atmosphere will be clear to
think over the claims of those who have
real grievances. First vindicate tv« law.
Until that is done no other questions are
in order."
At the conclusion of the lengthy charge,
Judge Gmsscup said : "Since I have pre
pared these instructions I have been in
formed that a Deputy United Slates Mar
shal was shot while in the discharge of his
duty. I will read the section of the Uuited
States statute! that covers offen?eß of this
nature. • • Any person, offending under
the law in a similar manner can be indicted.
Remember, gentlemen, you have been
called here under exciting circumstances
to discharge a grave public duty."
The jury retired to the jury-room aud
after organizing went to dinner. Deputy
United States Marshal Jones aud a force
of marshals are detailed to keep unwel
come intruders from the sceue of the jury's
labors. The railroad attorneys have filed
information against the rioters in the Dis
trict Attorney's oftice aud several clerks
have been rut to woik at filing it for the
convenience of the jury. To Oliver Pagen,
Assistant United States Attorney, will fall
the duty of drawing the indictments. Mr.
Pagen said to-day that the jury would have
to make baste slowly.
"We have an appalling lot of informa
tlon," said Mr. l'agen. "but indictments
for conspiracy and inciting to riot are seri
ous things and must be drnwn up pre
cisely. It has been suggested that the
jurors receive the testimony in a practical
way, keeping the proper memoranda and
finding true bills from time to time, as the
information warrants the indictment of
men for conspiracy ag&inst the Govern
ment."
TO COMPEL SETTLEMENT.
Pullman Stockholders Weary of the
Long Struggle.
Chicago, July 10.— A movement origi
nated to-day among a coterfe of Pullman
stockholders on the Board of Trade to in
duce the resident direciors of the Pullman
Company to bring their influence to bear
on Mr. Pullman to yield to demands for
arbitration, or if necessary to call an
emergency meeting of the executive com
mittee of directors to act independently of
the president in the interests of the
majority of the ownership.
"It is labor lost; not 150 Mayors would
have the slightest effect on the
Company," said Mayor Hopkins when
asked if Mayor Pingree of Detroit had
nsked him to become one of the fifty
Mayors to join in an appeal to Genrge M.
Pullman to allow the differences between
him and hit men to be submitted to ar
bitration.
"Mayor Pingree probably thought there
was no need of asking me to j>in with him'
in such an appeal," said the Mayor. "My
position is pretty well known. But fifty
Mayors will have no effect on the Puilman
Company; no, nor 150 or 500. Every one
is ignored by this company. However it
will take Pullman years to recover from
this trouble. He will find he is boycotted
without anyunity in action or effort by the
American people. The business will go to
Pullman's competitors. Then he will
realize the mistake of his position to-day."
The blockade at the stockyards was
raised to-day. A train of fifty-five cars
with meat went through the yards without
obstruction, being the first to leave since
July 4. The receipts to-day were fifty
cattle and three sheep.

cars this morning, in spite of a mob along
L,onmis aod Forty-seventh streets. Stones
were thrown and the crowd hooted, but

resumed suburban service. The number
of freight trains has largely increased

way companies have nothing to say as to
the prosecuting of individuals who have
violated the laws. That matter is left in
the bands of the Government.

HARRISON ON CLEVELAND.
He Believes That the President Has
Done His Whole Duty.
Indianatulis, Ind., July 10. — Ex-
President Benjamin Harrison having been
quoted as saying that President Cleveland
has established a new precedent In send
ing Federal troops into a State, without a
request from the Governor of the State
and over his rrotest. s.iid to-day:
"1 have never said what I am quoted as
saying as to the use of United States troops
by the President, nor do I think the Presi
dent has transcended his powers. On the
other hand, I believe there is no spot in
the United States where the United States
may not go u:ider such orders without ask
ing anybody's consent, and that the en
forcement of the laws of the United States
is the sworn dutvot the President, and the
army an appropriate instrument to use in
the enforcement of these laws where they
are violently resisted aud the civil officers
are unable to deal with the situation. If
the posse cnmliatus law limits the Presi
dent's constitutional power at all, which
is very doubtful, it only requires the procla
mation to precede the us* of troops."

Serious Danger.

office, where the special officers who
guarded the building quietly took his
bundle away.
It was found to bs a glass bottle, with a
fuse attached, filled with cartridge--, scraps
of iron and a substance unknown to the
officers. The man was taken out of the
building. To-day an analysis or tne sub
stance in the bottle was madi», and it was
found tn bp a dangerous explosive, which
would explcdi! witb great violence upon
the application of a gentle heat.
PEFFER'S IDEA.
He Has a Scheme to Settle the
Strike.
Washington. July 10.— When the Sen
ate met to-day, and after the transaction
of some routine business, the resolution
introduced by Senator Peffer yesterday
was laid before the body.
Pfffer discussed his resolution, which
looks to the Government control of rail
ways and roal-fie.lds and the adoption of
the doctrine of single tax. He appealed
to Senators to listen, far while he was not
a prophet nor the son of a prophet, nor an
alarmist, yet ho had time and time again
called the attention of the country to what
seemed to him to be within the ordinary
ruin's vision— the public danger. All his
propositions related to one fundamental
error wnicn the country bad fallen into,
the danger of allowing a few men here
and a few men there to usurp the gover
mental functions. All public functions
should be exercised by Government! fficers.
He re'erred to Debs as a iran of whom
the country had heard a great deal Utely,
but of whom it was likely to hear very
much more before long. Mr. Peffer said
that when the Pullman Comcany estab
lished what the people of«tbe world be
lieved to bo an ideal community, in which
all should have equa.l rights and none spe
cial privileges every one commended it
lor its philanthropy. But the charges for
rent and for the uecessari»s of life were
deducted from the men's monthly pay, and
when their wages weie reduced the men
submitted, but a:-ked that their rents and
taxes be reduced. They found they were
in the powpr of a con oration without a
soul, until, finally, they came to the con
clusion they might as well starve in sup
port of their rights as in filling the coffers
of Pullman. He lelerred to the arrogant
attitude of Pullmnn acd ot the Pullman
officials, and read from this morning's pa
pers dispatches of the interview of the
Chicago Aldermen with Vice-President
Wifkes, during which the latter iterated
and reiterated that "the Pullman Com
pany had nothing to arbitrate."
Whether it was right for ttie A. R. U. to
strike in sympathy and refuse to haul
Pullman cars it was not his purpose lo
trgue, but the ominous situation con
fronted the country and it was our duty to
deal with it.
Mr. Hawlev inquired whether Mr.
Peffor did not Lnow that the railroads
were under obligations to hnul the cars.
Mr. prffer replied that the railroad com
panies wero under no more obligations to
the Pullman Company than Pullman wa*
to the railways but this was no lime to
talk of contracts between Pullman and
the railway cotuDaniea, and be was sur
prised that a Senator who had so often
championed Ihe cause of the workingmen
sthould tak of such thii gs.
Mr. PHler proceeded to arraign Congress
for its defense of monopolies and its stand
ugninst the people. He did not wonder
sometimes that there was a prowing Jeel
ing against the Congress at Washington,
and thui men wi>hrd to abolish the Sen
ate, lie would go a step farther, how
ever, and besides seconding an effort to
abolish the Semite he would also abolish
tbe House of Representatives and have the
country governed by one man from each
State.
Senator Davis, speaking of the Kvle
rcoluti' n, said it was put in at r. time
when the troubles in the West were in
progress for the pur ose of making the
Uuited States a pHrtn»T in the lawlessness.
The striKe grew from n strike to a boycott
ana now to an insurrection. He described
thevaiious lawlessness and said Kyle's
resolution was. to take away the power of
the United Stutes to punUh such gross
acts of violence. If the acts «f violeuce
had been committed upon the Great Lakes
or the high seas it would have been piracy
and punish .ble by death. The Senator
from K«nsashad said the troops 6hould be
withdrawn, but he had not given a sugges
tion of what would protect life and prop
erty. Debs could not do so if he were
given full power, no more than he could
restore the cars burned by his men. The
shipof state, which two weeks ago was
floating proudly without trouble, was now
uuon troubled waters. lie would not
sueak of parties, but Democrats, Repub
licans and Populists should unite iv re
storing peace.
General Gordon of Georgia followed in a
brief speech, saying that when a great city
was threatened with bloodshed and fire
any Senator descended very low when he
talked of party as did the Senator from
Kansas. The war which threatened was
not sectional and he spoke not from a
southern standpoint but as a citizen of
this great nation, and he ureed that the
lnw be enforced. Senator Gordon finished
by saving that his heart felt for tbe blood
that had been shed, but that was as noth
ing compared to the pride of the republic.
Tie sons of those who made it would save
it.cost what it miclit. Loud applauseon the
floor and in the'galleries graeted the Sena
tor as he took l>is seat, unchecked for sev
eral seconds by the Vice-President's
gavel.
Daniel then offered a substitute for
the resolution of lVffer indorsing the
action of the President declaring that
the United States had the power to enforce
the laws respecting tba mail routes and
interstate commerce and to put down riots
iitul actions of treason.
There were many calls for a vote on
the Daniels resolution, but Gallinger
asked to have it go over, and this was
equivalent to an objection.
The Postoftice appropriation bill was
then taken up and passed.
The Senate tu^n took up the diplomatic
appropriation bill on motion of Black
burn. He yielded to Faulkner to
move to take tin tbe bill for the admission
of Utah as a State. The bill was passed
with the Senate committee amendments
and without debate or division.
The Se ate went into exocutive session,
and at 5:45 o'clock adjourned.
Tbe President and his advisors were
again In session to-night. They have been
in communication with Chicago by tele
phone and teloeraph and they feel satisfied
with the situation there. General Scho
lieid had received no word from General
Ruzer up to 10 o'clock to-night, aud this is
taken as an indication that no trouble
occurred at Oakland or Saeram&nto to-day.
WILL SUPPRESS TROUBLE.
Regulars Sent to the Cceur d'Alene
Mines.
Spokane, Wash., July 10.— United
Sates troops have been sent into the
Coeur d'Alene mines to suppress the
threatened trouble. Company C and a
part of Company E, Fourteenth Infantry,
from Vancouver, under command of
Major Burke, left here for Wallace to
day. The troops are equipped for field
service.

Court has rejected the appeal of R<ctor

against the sentence of three months'
imprisonment Imposed upon him for
liDellns Prussian ofliciials.
TURNING UGLY.
Work of a Mob at Los
Angeles.
BLOCKED THE TRACKS.
Southern Pacific Cars
Wrecked.
TRAINS WERE SENT OUT.
But There Will Be Trouble There
To-Day.
THE TROOPS WERE ALL ASLEfcP.
When a Mob Stole Into the Yards
and Did Its Work
Undisturbed.
Los Angeles, July 10.— For the first
time since the strike was proclaimed in
Los Anjieles, ugly worn began to-nigbt.
At the conclusion of a singularly peaceful
day this unexpected outbreak of hostilities
oou place, and the people who boasted of
the city's good record are sorely disap
pointed. The police say it is only the be
ginning of trouble, and, acting on this
opinion, have detailed a special guard at
the station and extra force in the railroad
yards.
Some time after dark, when the watc!)
ou the railroad property was relaxed on
account o( the good conduct of the striker-,
a gang of forty ot fifty men went to the
yards at the San Fernando street depot.
They overturned an empty freightcarso
that the top fell across one rail of the main
track of the road leading out of the oily to
Yum a. From appearances, planks were
placed under the car and the crowd leaned
on the finds and tilted it over.
The purpose of this act appears to be a
fiendish attempt to wreck an incoming
train. Those who planned it were aware
that watchfulness had been relaxed and
the gu rds weie not considered necessary
on all trains, so a march could be stolen
on the railroad officials when they least
expected it.
After this was done the gang moved two
cars about 100 yards to aswitch connecting
the Yuma main line with a side truck.
At that point they opened the switch and
ran the boxcars back, letting one truck
run on the side track and the other on the
main line and then closed the switch. By
thus complicating things the line is
blocked, and will need some hours' work
to clear it. The third car was turned up
acainst the car entrapped in the switch.
Strange to say, no dpputy marshals or
sheriffs or police heard or saw the crowd.
The witnesses are alt sympathizers and
refuse to speak about it. Il is known that
the gang committing the deed wore white
ribbons and buttons, but whether they are
A. R. U. men or merely sympathizers can
not be ascertained. The scene of the oc
currence is on Alhanibra avenue, about
tiiree blocks from the A. R U. head
quarters, where the strikers gatder dailr.
The soldiers were in camp, the police
in their barracks and the deputies at home
wiipn the mob began its first night's work.
Immediately the news cnnie into town
officers hurried to the Sau Fernando street
yards and to-nieht there are 75 to 100
men, Including police and deputies, guard
ing the roundhouse and railroad property.
Detectives ate out investigating the case,
but all they know so far is that the crowd
stole out quietly and after venting its
aneer on the company hurriedly dispersed.
It is believed that the making up of
freight trains and successfully dispatching
one to-day opposite the A. R. U. nead
quart^rs incited the mob to commit the
deed.
MR. MUIR'S ABILITY.
He Has Kept Part of the Southern
Pacific Open.
Los Angeles, July 10.— The Southern
Pacific raised the blockade to-day over its
Sunset route to New Orleans. All local
trains an n running on the Southern Pacific
and Santa Fe roads, ana the latter will
send out freight trains to-night. Overland
trains with Pullniiios and mails have left
both depots. A freight train went east to
day on the Southern Pacific toad.
The strikers mako no demonstrations
nor do any mobs gather, and railroad busi
ness is falling back into its customary
groove slowly but surely. The United
States troops find less to do every day.
The average citizeu will say he is glad the
country is open again for commerce, mails
and passenger travel, while he sympathizes
with the strikers and wishes to see them
win their fi^ht.
Sucb, in brief, is the situation in
Southern California ibis evening. Super
intendent Muir, who controls the South
ern Pacific south of Tehachapi Moun
tains, is losing the troubled look which he
has worn for so many days past, and now
be is pardonably proud of bis accomplish
ment in opening bis department to all
classes of railroad business while not an
engine moved elsewhere. In his ca.se
beinre the Federal courts there are two
sides, but so far only the United States
attorneys have been heard lv full.
Mr. Muir spent several hour* In the
United States Grand Jury room here
answering questions about his delaying
mails and interstate commerce, and he was
reindicted with the rest of the railroad
official*.
He -told his story to The Call cor
respondent this afternoon, and it proves
quite interesting, inasmuch as it shows
what determination and pluck can accom
plish. The fact is .if Muir was superin
tendent at Oakland alt the ferries and
locals, and possibly overland trains, would
be running without interruption,
"The United States officials don't know
anything about railroading." said he while
rushing about the depot. "They don'uiu
derstand the difficulties we have bad to
contend against here. It is claimed that
I've interferred with interstate commerce
and the movement of mails. That is sheer
nonsense. I have worked for twenty, yes,
twenty-two hours out of twenty-four to
start trains out and I don't think the
United States officials would do so
much. All our engines were cold
and dead. The roundhouse turntable
