CUTS DOWN SPEED
TO INSURE SAFETY!
PENNSYLVANIA AND NEW YORK
Cl.vriiAli T?> 1)?> AWAY WITH
I M.II I I I.N-HOl H TKA1NS.
NHW YORK.? Special.? Tho Penn
Sylvanla and the New York Central
Kallroada have deterncdnsd to sacri
lico speed to ?Mfety and to furnish
additional safeguards for the travel?
ing publie by length? iiing the running
time of tht ir elghteen-hoor trains to
Chicago lor the winter. Tho new
schedules, which will go into effect
on each road about November "Mth,
will make the running time of these
trains twenty hours instead of eigh?
One of the reasons for this change
is that during the winter months there
are many obstructions to traffic which
do not obtain In good weather. Hut
tho main reason Is that investigation
ftillowlng wrecks which have occurred
in winter have shown that frost so
acta on the rails as to make them un
sai'e when a heavy train is driven
over them at high speed. The slower
running time for th?ne fast trains, the
railroads say, will lessen the probabil?
ity of wrecks.
The Pennsylvania issued Its official
.?nnounccment of the change of time
Friday. The New York Central's an?
nouncement has not been made, pub?
lic yet. but Vice President C. F. Daly
said that the change would go Into
eff?-ct on that road at about the same
time as on the Pennsylvania.
"Tho eighteen-hour train will bo
the only one affc<*t???l." said Mr. Daly,
**as the other trains to Chicago make
the run in from twenty to twenty
four hours, and there is no necessity
for 'lengthening that time."
The new twenty-hour train on tho
Pennsylvania will he known as the
"Uroaiiway limited." It will leave
New York at l! : ?15 o'clock in tho af?
ternoon, arriving in Chicago at 9:45
o'clock the next morning. Easthound.
it will leave Chicago at 12:40 o'clock
an?! arrive In New York at 9:40
o'clock tho next morning.
The Pennsylvania road will not
change the time of its "twenty-four
rustir St. Louis" and "twenty-four
hour Now Y?>rk" trains, nor will tho
schedule of any of its other trains to
Chicago he altered.

NUTICK TO KNJOINKD PARTY.
WASHINGTON. D. C?9p?*?cial.---An
unusual announcement came trom the
Amt-rlcan Federation of Labor Friday
praising the Unite?! StRt?se Supreme
Court lor striking a blow at abuses of
the writ of injunction. This changing
of the rules in regard to the issuing of
preliminary Injunctions and temporary
restraining- order? Is Included In a re?
vision of the proceedings In equity
cases In Federal courts, announced by
Chief Justice White only a few days
ago. The new rules adopt???! by the
.Supreme Court restrict the Issuing- of
preliminary injunctions without notice
to the party enjoined.
Here ls the formal comrrt-ent that
came from the American Federation of
Labor on the action of tho Supreme
"That the Influence, attitude and re?
monstrances of the American Federa?
tion of Labor against the abus?- by the
Federal Judges el the injunctivo writ in
labor disputes hus finally had its effect
upon the highest legal tribunal of the
United States is evident. For many
month? the judges of the Supreme
Court of the United States have be? n
at work upon a now set of rules? gov
ernlng practice before the court.s of
equity In the United States. On No?
vember 4th the result of the con?
clusions of th?? judges was promiil- i
gate.l i-i a public document. While
the rule put forth by the United State.,
Supreme Court In preliminary injurio- '
tions and temporary restraining ord?-rs
?lots not meet with the approval of the
American Federation of Labor, yot the
action taken In prescribing the prac?
tice relative to these writs is a stop In
th?- right direction."
Here Is the new rule laitl down by
the Supremo Court on injuncti??ns:
"No preliminary injunction shall be
granted without notice to the opposite
party, nor ?hall any temporary re?
straining order be granted without no
ti<*?- t>> tin* opposite party unless it
?hall ebarly appear from specific facts
shown by aflidavit or by the verified
bill that immediate and Irreparable loss
or damage Will result to th?* applicant
before the matter can be heard on no
"ln case a temporary rostralni:
der shall be granted without notice in
the contingency spa-eilied. the matter
shall b?- made returnable at the earliest
possible time, and in In? event later
than ten days from tue date of the or?
der, and shall take precedent*? of all
matter*?, except older matter? <?i th?
sann? character. When th.- niatt.r
comes up for hearing th? party who
obtained th? temporary restraining or?
der shall j't.xee.l with bis application
for a preliminary Injunction and if be
doe? not do so, th? court shall dissolve
his temporary restraining order.
"Upon two days' notice to tin- party
obtaining such temporary restraining
order, tho opposite party may appear
and move the dissolution ami modiflca
tlon of the order, anil in that event th?
court or Judge shall proceed t<> har
and determln?* the motion as
pedltlously as the ends of Justi.*.* m.iv
require. Kvery temporary restraining
order shall be forthwith fil?d In th?

Formal acceptance <>f the resignation
of Dr. W. E. Evans, r??ctor of the
??hurch of the Advent, was the main
f.-atur?- of the last s??ssion of the war?
dens and vestry of that congregation.
Although Dr. Evans has been in
failing health for sometime, his rc
quest to be released from his local
?luties ??ame as a surprise to the otll
Of the ?hurch. He will go to his
farm. "Eastwood." at Dos.v.-ll, Va.,
near Richmond, February 1st.
Steps have not as yet been taken
towards obtaining s ?*uece*s*or for i>r.
Evans. Coming here from Richmond
six years ago. Dr. Evans has endeared
himself to his parishioners during that
t i in <?.
He will not nssume another charge
until his health p?*rmlts. Regret at
liis resignation has been expressed by
the wardens and vestrymen. Robert
Jemlaon, Rr.. Is senior warden and E.
if. Tutwlbr. junior warden.
The following is Dr. Evans' letter of
"To tho Wardens and Vestry of the
Church of the Advent, Birming?
"My I ?oar Erlends.?A necessity that
I have s.-.-n approaching for some?
time past, has at last reached me. I
have long felt my physical inability to
do the full work of this large parish.
and sine?- my illness of last spring, I
hav? known that I should lny down my
charge and let another take my place
[another who is physically able to at?
tend to all the duties that arise in so
larg?* a parish.
"My physical condition outwardly
aWems improved; but upon tho slight
eft exercise my old malady rises and
a**s?rts Itself, and manifests Its pres?
en.?? by excessive blood-throb In the
hoad ?an?l by pain In the heart. These
,ir?- symptoms that I dare not disre?
gard. Should I do so, in a sh?irt while
th? vestry will have a dead man to
"Ender th.se conditions I am under
the necessity of resigning my charge.
No one can know what this step costs
me. It means tho severing of warm
ties of friendship with my vestry and
my congregation that are most sacred.
Vet, I believe that I am doing right in
making this sacrifice. Not only do I
believe that I am doing right, but this
step is at last necessary.
"I have fixed upon the llrst of Feb?
ruary. 1 i> 1 :?. as the date when my
resignation shall take effect, as it was
tin* month of February that I came to
y..u six y*-ars ago. I shall beg the

ting the services of a r?t*ctor who
i bent carr> of the
s God has committed it to us.
"I am surs that if we bsgin at once
we ?hall be able to supply the parish
with a rector who will take up th*
! work as soon as I lay It down. Then
there will be no necessity for an in
incy. The work will be;
'Uninterrupted and proceed as usual.
"At another time 1 shall speak to
you of the universal eourtesy and
