The announcement In The Dee that the
populists of Pottawat amle county were In
tending to put up a county ticket this fall ,
In splto of the fusion with the democrats on
the congressional ticket , aroused considerable
In'erest in local political circles. A well
known populist , In conversation with a Bee
reporter , unbosomed himself this way :
"My reason for wanting to put up a county
ticket Is that If we don't have a ticket It
will look as though populism had died out
In Po tawattamle county. Such men as
Klnnchan. Gillette , Churchill , John Ahles ,
Mjers , and the rest of us , went Into the
party originally as a matter of principle , and
for us to llo down now. Just when everything
Is looking our way , would be to acknowledge
that principles didn't count for \ery much
when olllces were to be had. There Is no
reason why we should vo'e for democrats for
county olllces , and there Is no reason for
thinking that If we leave our county ticket
blank we will vote for the democratic candl-
dates any moro than for the republican. As
many of us were republicans as democrats
before vvo got to be populists , and to put up
no ticket would probably result In dividing
our forces between the two old parties , so
that neither one would be particularly bene
fited. No , populism Is growing In Polta-
wat'arnle county. Wo can ECO that from the
fact that we have our candidate for con
gress supported by the democratic party.
And now vvo want to go ahead and bhow
the public that It Is growing , by polling
Just as many votes as wo can In the county
elec Ions. "

CHICAGO , Aug. 20. By far the largest
audience which has yet been In attendance
upon ] tli < rlko commission's sessions was
present ] today , attracted by the appearance
as a witness of President C. V. Debs of the
American Hallway union. The court room
where the comifllssloiitrs sit was crowdsd
from the bench to the doorw.ijs when Presi
dent Djln took the witness chair.
"Now tell us , In your own way , Sir. Debs , "
said Commissioner Wright , "what > ou know
of the Pullman strike and Its resu.ts. "
Leaning forward In his seat , the tall leader
of the great strike begun In a low , clear
voice , u recital , which gradually became more
earnest and forUbl ; as he proceeded , until
It developed Into almost un oration. He told
of having received word that a strike In
Pullman was Imminent and of his coming to
Chicago to Investigate.
"I found , " he said , "that the- men were
working for the Pu Iman company at wages
upon which thej could not live. I found
that salailes hud been cut tlmo and aguln ,
until skilled mechanics were working their
lives away for wages not sufficient for a day
laborer. That the town of Pullman , with
Its shops , Its houses und Its stoics , was so
cch med that every penny the worklngmnn
made found Its way back to the Tbmpuny.
"In fact I found the worklngmen of Pull
man In n pltablo condition , nnd determined I
would do all In my power as president of the
American Ilulhvay union to Improve the con
ditions of these men. The stilke followed ,
ordered by the men themselves. Then came
the boycott , ordered by duly elected delegates
our convention , and then followed the rail
road strikes , ordered by the various local
union , each of which was authority In Itself.
Otbs then told of the stilks , his account
differing but little from that of the other
American Hallway union olllclals who had
preceded him on the witness stand.

"Would the raliroad strikes have occurred
there had been no Pullman trouble ? "
iisked Commissioner Wright.
"No , the Pullman strike was the prime
cause We desired '

"Hut the railroad men had grievances of
their own. The 0-neral Managers associa
tion had been organized with the avowed In
tention of giving assistance' ' to railroads In
labor troubles The evldctjt 41111 was to drlvo
organized labor from cjclstfiice No sooner
liad this association b.cn fqrmed than a sys-
tumntlc reduction of railroad wages nil over
the country began. Thci cuts were made on
jno road at n time , ana lli"one department

Hut I do not wish to shirk any responsi

spoken against It , bellcvclng and Kruwlng
that a strike could not be won by violence

no Instances. "
"How about tha 'Iuy | a gun' telegram ? "
inked Mr. Kernin.
"That Is easily explained The telegram .
iwis sent by a private secrctarj to n friend

ilon. It was dent ns such and was so un-

Mr. Debs then said that within five dayt
iftcr the strike was declared the union hit
"They were paralyzed , " he sa.d , "but Just
that tlmo Injunctions were sown broad
est , and shortly after the olllclals cf tht
II. U. were arrested ( or contempt ol
court. That beat us. It was not the rail
roads or the army , but the power of the
Un ted States courts that bat us. About
that time a thing occurred which I desire
to mention. General Miles came to Chicago
cage , called on the General Managers assc-
clatlon and the next day was quoted In an
Interview as sajlnp ; he had broken the bick-
bone of the strike. Now , I consider that
the call of General Miles was vulgarly out
of place. Ho had no more right to con
sult with the General Managers absoclat on
limn ho had to consult with the men of our
unions. I might say , too , that It seems
strange that all cf our letters and telegrams
were made public property while not a line
of the railroads correspondence was pub
lished. If It had been , I think we could
prove that the general managers nt one of
their secret meetings declared they would
stamp the A. H. U. out of existence. "
In reply to a question Debs said that the
union had taken every possible means to
prevent rioting and disorder.
"Wo objected to the presence of the
federal troops , but not to the state troops
and police. If I remember rightly no
serious outbreak occurred until the federal
troops arrived , as their presence Inflamed the
The witness then told of the trouble with
the railroad brotherhoods. "The brother
hoods have outlived their usefulness , " he
said , "and for that reason I left the fire

Jealous of the American Hallway union and
helped to defeat us. There Is now a move
ment on foot to form a grand and un'ted
railroad labor organization. Within three
days a proposition will be submitted to the
other railroad orders whereby all pre ent
olllccrs of the American Hallway union and
other unions shall resign with a possibility
of election to olHcc. The principal ciuso of

will bo effected which shall Include all rail
The commissioners have notified George M
Pullman to appear nnd testify. They will
nlso call for ECV ral members of the General
Managers association The date for Mr. Pull
man's testimony has not been set , but It Is
expected that he will appear Tuesday or
"What Is jour opinion as to the methods
of preventing strlk s ? " asked Mr. Worthlng-
ton of Debs.
"My own Idea , and It Is the Idea of the
American Hallway union , Is to unify all the
railroad men of the country. A power like
that , prudently managed , would mold
strikes. The railway managers would iccog-
nlz3 the vvlbdom of treating It fairly and
meeting * It In a conciliatory spirit. "
"Do you believe a strike Is Justifiable that
Interferes with public convenience ? "
"I believe striking Is justifiable no mat
ter what the result when It resists enslav
ing and degrading. "
"Do you bellevo In government ownership
of railroads ? " asked Mr. Keehan.
"Yes , sir. I believe the government owner
ship of railroads Is decidedly better than
railroad ownership of the government. "
Mr Debs was followed by Mr Morrlssoy
of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen
The broth rhood , ho said , did not bellevo In
