His Actio.! Not Only Unwar ranted liut Revolutionary. Arbitrators Powerless to Deal With a Sympathy Strike. Saratoga, N. Y., Aug. 22. The Ameri can bar association of which Judge T. M. Cooiey of Ann Arbor, Mich., is it 17th abiiual president began meeting here this morning. The president being absent by reason of illness, lis address was read by the acting president, Judge Samuel F. Hunt of Cincinnati. It was very lengthy and communicated the most noteworthy changes iu utalutory law on points of general internal wtucu have been made in the several states and by congress during the preceding year. Judge Cooley's Address. "The year whicu has eiaped tjince the last meeting !s tu some very striking par ticulars one of the most uotable in the history of ti e country, and 1 thiuk I cannot more usefully occupy your time than by invi'-iug your consideration of Bouie of the j hases of social and public life, which iu a constitutional point of view appear to merit notice. "They have a bearing upon the vital principle of our political institutions and teem to indicate a necessity for re viewing the worn of those whom we have U en at customed to admire and re s' ect as the founders of liberty in the western wurli and for considering and judging for ourselves whether the struc ture tiity created and which has hitheito been tha uJ miration of the worid. is worth)- oi the praise it has received. "The experience of the year has taug'st us. if 'Vf noeded the lesson, that times may at.d will com when the fact that fur a eei.tury political institutions have had beneleerit operation and the excellence of their principles has seem el unquestionable to those who have en joyed them, tiay perhaps no longer be Kccepie.1 ai coiilusive evidence of their consistency, vitu true liberty or with the highest go-id of a free people. T;:e careless, or interested criticism of one whole political following seems tu be dUconte iLen with whatever of gov ernment now exists may sumce to put our constitutional structure under ti? picioa, and the outcry of persons who not unlikely are so new to our country that they spe i'i but imperfectly its lan guage and cannot read a clause of its constitution laay be enough to raije iu the mind of c no who couris their favor doubts, real or pre.o a id I, wm.jer the freedom we are supposed tu enjoy is mure than ncmiuaL 'When an ch a time comes the most fundamental principles may be in need, not merely of tacit acceptance, but of a defease that shall consist in active and aggressive warlare upon those who, iu disorderly or unconstitutional way, assail them. That Extraordiuarj- Spectacle. "I shall first refer to tnai extraordinary pectacle witnessed early in the year of considerable bodies of men collected in various sections of the country under the leadership of persons who assumed mili tary titles, aad who proposed to march upon Wathirgton. The thought actuat ing the movement was that the country of their birth, or which they had selected to live in, owed them the duty to see that the meui of support were provided them, and thit the government must per form this duty. ".No attotion seems to have been taken by then of the apportioning of the powers between the states and the gen eral governrr ent The state was passed unnoticed, though to one familiar with our institutioDs it was plain enough that the duty insHted upon, if it existed at all, must rent upon the states, and the artn.es marched directly upon the na tional capital tj demand the action of the general government. "These vagrant bands marched across the country 1o the great detriment of its industrial llf. While they pretended to represent the doctrine that the govern ment was unier obligation to provide for its people the means whereby a com fortable iivicg might be had, they found sympathizer among those temporarily out of employment and also among other well meanin g people who had of the true functions of government only vague and unsettled notious. They caused unrest everywhere as they represented notions which are at tagonistic to the existing social and political state they were everywhere public danarer. "During the summer jut passed, the eouatry wittened a great and disastrous boycott and strike of railroad workmen. The cause was not any coutrovesy over their own w.ges. or about their treat ment by their employers; it. was a sym pathetic movement, so-called. Tha Pullman Boycott. "One quettiou fairly arising, and which b.s hitherto received slight attention, concerns the rights legal and equitable of those w ho were to "be affected, and raises the question whether under prin ciples supposed to prevail wherever free governmeat exists, the strike as against them could be fully justified without careful consideration of its probable ef fect upon tMeir interests being first had, and if practicable, an opportunity given them to urge reasons from their own standpoint against it being entered upSa. T ondirstand very well that In the case of the ordinary strike or boycott entered upon for the purpose of redressing an existing wrong, or to prevent one which is threat ened, the cai is, to a considerable ex tern, such bf partakes of the nature of self-defense, and incidental iujdry to third partier, if it is unavoidable, is ex- cused on that ground. But there was nothing of the nature of eelf-defense here. 'But in this case innocent parties who must necessarily sutler, cot only had no opportunity to protest but their losses were not taken into account as reasons against the boycott and strike. On the contrary they were looted upon as favor able features since they rendered suc cess more probable. But a sympathetic strike is bad in morals and must be quite as bad in policy, when the probable in jury to innocent parties will exced the probable beneit to the parties it aims to assist." Referring to state aad federal rights and the protest of Governor Altgeld, he said: Gov. Altg-eltl MTaa lTrong, "There are national duties to be per formed in Illinois, national officers, agents and courts to whom in part the performance was intrusted and disor derly parties were interfering and ren dering performance difficult, often times impossible. But the position of the gov ernor was that the maintenance of peace and the repression of disorder was a state duty and the president was guilty of usurpation when he thus, without re quest, moved troops into the etate for the purpose. 'We cannot admit that the position taken is even plausible. It has no war rant whatever in the federal constitution, which is, on the contrary, distinctly against it. The president is to take care that the federal laws be faithfully exe cuted, and his doing so is not made to depend upon the will or conjnt of any one state. The duty is specially, and in the plainest terms, imposed upon him, and iu the performance of it he is subor dinate to no state authority. "Yet, if the views of the governor were accepted as sound, the mails might be stopped at Chicago, in terstate commerce broken up and the process of United States courts refused service unless the gover nor wbeu disorder was djiniuatit saw fit to suppress it, or call upon the presideut to d so. If tile protest was yielded to, it was a concession that tho governor and not the president was to take care that the laws of the United States were faithfully executed in his state and if he failed to do so, a mob might at pleasure defy them. "The action taken by the two houses of cougress iti approving in emphatic terms what had been dona by the presi dent was equivalent to an expressionj of their opinion that the protest of the gov ernor was Dot only unwarranted, but revolutionary. Tub sentiment of tho ciMii'.r as expressed in its public journ als and otherwise, was to tne same ef fect and the question of constitutional law may be considered practically set tled." Yliut Could Arbllintlo i Ua.vi J J o n 3 In speaking of arb.tr ition he asked: "Suppose a national law for compulsory arbitration had existai and the strikers had demanded u.a. intervention of the ur bi iaiion Jjoard, wiiat must have been tiie result? Obviously after the board had looked into the cis! it wo-rid li4ve been compelled to say that under the law. they couid give uo remedy for it had no application wiiaiever. 'The strike was by railroad employes and ihey and their employers were only the parties to it. But the cause of com plauit which led to the strike was a con troversy between other parties alto gether, parties who stood indeed in hostile attitude to each other, but were not parties to this stride, and couid not be brought in to take part iu the arbitration demanded. The bo ird summoned to consider thi3 would be wholly without jurisd.ction to determine, or even to looc into the merits of the con troversy, which was the excuse for the one now brought to its H teation. "If, therefore, the board could take any action whatever it would be merely to report that the Btrike wusnot based upon any complaint made against the railroad companies, that there was no contro versy between the parties to it to be in vestigated and passed upon, and conse quently the board had no jurisdiction and must dismiss the ease. "The personal liberty of both the em ployer and the laborer is necessarily to be respected and every man must be left to determine for himself whether he will observe and perform such moral, or sentimental obligations, or recop-nize such claims as the state has never deemed it wise to convert into lethal duties or legal rights. The legal ditliculties in tho way of a complete remedy will remain and will be serious At almost every point, but the very Knowledge of their existence will emphasize the need of precautions to prevent a resort to violent measures when arbitration is inadequate to give additional force to the public opinion which will look with emphatic disfavor upon refusal of arbitration when that seems a suitable ani sufficient rem edy for alleged wrongs. Sympathetic Strikes Can't lie Arbitrated. "Our statesmen leaders wjil never over look the fact that there is one class of btrike that can never be settlhd by arbi tration. That is the sympathetic strike, and the reason i plain; the parties to the strike are iot the parties to the con troversy that needs to bo settled, and if the sympathizers are held justified the original quarrel still ramaini undeter mined. "A finding made by a given number of arbitrators as to the merits of the orig inal controversy in such cases wonld be idle fulminalion of opinion, having be hind it no force of law and going no far thertotlxe moral obligation upon any party concerned than would a like ex pression by any other equal number of equally intelligent raettbers of the com munity."

A Report That Income Tax is Made Ineffective. Congress Fails to Provide Means for Its Collection. THEY CAN DO NOTHING. Internal Revenue Collectors Helpless Till Congress Acts, Congress is Without a Quorum and Can't Act This Session. Chairman Sayers Declares the Report is False. New York, Aug. 22. A special from Washington says: In addition to the long, list of errors found in the Gorman tarifl bill, the surprising discovery has beea made by. the treasury department officials that no appropriation has been made for putting into effect the income provisions. The collectors of internal revenue can do nothing under these circumstances iu the direction of preparing to collect tho tax. The treasury officials claim to b blameless; for they forwarded to the ap propriation committee more than a month ago an estimate for an initial ap propriation of $500,000 to be used dur ing the current riacal year in carrying out the income tax provisions of tho tariff bill, if it should become a law. Tha secretary through the commissioner of internal revenue estimates that the appointment of 25J deputy collectors and eighteen or twenty addi tional clerks in the Washington ofiice would be necessary 'to begin the prelimi nary work. Whether by accident or design, neither the house nor the senate appropriations committee paid any attention to Secre tary Carlisle's esiimate, and the internal revenue collectors are therefore helpless and must therefore defer all arrange ments until congress provides the neces sary money. This will not be done at the present session as owing to the lack of a quorum in either house, no business cau be trans acted except by unanimous consent, wh.ch of course cannot be obtained for the purpose of saving the unpopular in come tax law from disaster. Commissioner of Internal I!v-nu Miller adin ts that congress strangely failed to provide the necessary money, but is hopeful that when the two houses reassemble in December the amount of his estimate will be included in an urgeut detic.ency appropriation bill, so that the administration of the new law will be uoado possible. SAYS THE REPORT IS FALSE. 3Ir. Sayers Says Treasury Department Was Given All It A.k.d For. WiiiHl.NOiuN, Aug. 22. Representa tive layers, chairman of the house com mittee on appropriations, brands a false aud sensational the story printed today to the effect that the startling discovery had been made that the appropriation committee had neglected or by design failed to allow the sum necessary to col lect, the income tax. "Every allowance for the collection of the tax has been made in accordance with the wishes of the treasury depart ment," said -nr. Sa3-res. "The commis sioner of internal revenue conferred with me last week on the subject and I asked him to talk with Secretary Carlisle and then submit a resolution covering just what he wanted. 'This was sent to me on Saturday. It called for an additional $9,000 for cleri cal help in the internal revenue depart ment. I introduced the resolution on Monday last and it was passed. It is just as the treasury department authori ties want it" IT IS WORSE FOR WHEAT. The Siberian Railway Will Let a ew Rival Into Market. Washington, Aug. 22. U. S. Consul Jonas at St. Petersburg, in a report to the department of state points to 'the fact that the early completion of the Siber ian railroad is likely to have a depressing effect upon the prices of grain throughout the world. No reliable estimate can be formed of the probable export of Siberian grain to Europe by this road and one rough esti mate placing it at 6,000,000 bushels f or the West Siberian aide is regarded as decidedly too low. Moreover the completion of the road is expected to greatly stimulate the plant ing of crain in the black soil belt, famous for Its fertility. In 1SS9, the Siberian governments produced a surplus of 30, 000,000 bushels or grain. To lei sen the depressing effect upon tho local St. Petersburg market of the expected in-rush of Siberian wheat, a new outlet is being provided by a line of railroad from Perm, already connected with Western Siberia to Kot las, on the Dvinar river, offering an easy outlet to Archangel, on the White sea, whence the wheat can be exported to other European countries.

Prof. George Byer, curator of Tulnne university mu seum in this city, allowed himself to be bitten by a rattlesnake, iu order to deter mine If a person can be Inoculated with the venom of serpents. He selected a young rattler that had been caught a few days ago. Teasing the snake be maddened it, and in a few minutes it directed its fangs toward Professor Byer's little finger and bit him. The professor says he did not use any antidote and awaited develop ments. In the course of a few hours the finger became swollen to twice its normal size. The professor said that during the week he would allow himself to be bitten again. He does not think the bite will prove fatal, because a young snake can not emit as much poison as an old one. The sensation was much like the sting of a bee; the pain became intense and the linger became swollen. Professor Byer's object In xperiment lng ia to try and establish that by the gradual absorption of a snake's venom, the system will become inoculated and a person in that condition can be bitten without results proving fatal.
