Chicago, March ?.?A dispatch received at tho
headquarters of tlie Bu ri i nut on system this ufter
lioou from the General Manager of thc Burlingtou
ami Missouri Bailroad at Onutlia, anys:
"" Judge nundy, of the United States Court has
this doy irvsii.'d an order requiring the Union
Pacific Enilway Company to take our business in
accordance xvilh Um Interstate Commerce law and
restraining the engineers of thc Union P&cilic
Company from rclasing to take our business; also
rcs!raining the engineers from striking, combining
or confederating for the purpose of organization,
or advising a strike.*'
C. J. (ii-eitic. general attorney for the Burlington
and Missouri liailrond. obtained the restraining
order from Judge Huntly. Mr. llrecne proce-eds
upon the theory that, when they combino together
foran unlasvful purpose, and in^furtherance there?
of agree to strike, or to organize a -.trike, they
thereby place in the hands of such combination
thrir individual right to quit employment and
thereafter are the agents of such combination act?
ing lor the entire body. When the strike occurs,
each individual not only quita work for himself,
but fer every oilier member of the combination.
The order was served late this afte'rnoou und the
hearing for tx permanent injunction will begin on
Judge Gn-shain's court, room was crowded to
the doors this afternoon nt the hour set for hear?
ing the application of the Chicago, Burlington
and Quincy Bailroad for an order on the receiver

Chief Arthur has issued another statement pra
?tenting the strikers' side of the case, in which
he says, in part:
Tho real question at 1-.-110 ls wages. Mr. Stone snd
his assoclata managers of the Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy and Ita various leased Unas, In their letter to
the engineers and Aramaa, clearly recognise tba
main issues, and, in fact, tae only issues of Impor
taiiO* to bs "pay to be govsratd by Ihe mllss ran,
an increase of the existing rata, and tte abolition of
rlij*sitl(-ation baaed upon length of isrvlre." By con?
fining their reply to these thro- point* th* represent*
tire* of tbe company practically admit lbs Ju-tiee ot
the other (lemana- of the men. or oon-lder them of
trifling '. :n ports noe. It has boen said that the action
ul tho men sass lusty, arjd did not give the officials of
the road sn opportunity fully to ooiisldsi- their de?
mands, but tha fae* li, by their own adxnlislon tbe de?
mands ww** placed before tha oosaptany ob l>bniaiv
is. and seven days later wera replied to In writing by
Ihe general manager ot all ths lines comprising tbe
system of tho Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, and
that the strike did not occur until five days after that,
nor until President I'or'tins hal bean advised by
Messrs. Artli,ir and Fat-gent and had repllod, prac
lleally lhat Mr. tStone waa the man with whom they
wonul have to settle their grlsvanoes. Altar reoelv
lng Hr. I'rikinss telegram. Msssrs. Arthur and Bar
gent again railed on Mr. Stone and attempted to din?
nies* the grievances fo:- a second or third time. They
got along to Article .1. whieh deal* with the wages

could not acree Theist* ssa., tm (ath'<r course left fur
the men bal to -ul.nilt to the demands of the company
or sti-ilie. All lins ls practically admitted by tbe
company In tbfl circular Issued by them, and lt proves
conclusively tia' every means of settlement was ex?
hausted beloit- tho strike wa* ordered.
With ej-wgnrd to the statement of General Man?
ager Stone that the road is willing to pay as
much as i i.s neighbors, the document gives
tlie xtngea paul tty ie)U)|>eting roads and mainl-aimx
the avi iage nit.- paid l?r the Burlington is less
than three com* |>ei mile, which is a decidedly
lower rate tlmn tlint of thc other roads. The
claim of the Burlington that the mileage e*t~t*atetn
Would work unfairly to the men on branch lines,
is met hy the question :
"' Why docs tlie Milwaukee and St. Paul mad,
with as ninny or more bninches*mnke no com?
'Ile- former aiguments aj-n nst the gradin!* of
engineers an- laptated and. referring to the claim
ol thc company, that the placing ol all engineer*
on an equality would tend to produce " cas*cs',
the circular says:

Berlin, March 9,?The Reichsan-eig-cr gives
the following details of thc last hours of Emperor
On Wednesday when hi. strength began to fail,
the Km*, to. spoke repeatedly to I-"ince William
shout thc condition of the Crown I-rincc and about
political and military affairs.
On Thursday he talked with his dan si.*,, the
Grand Duchess of linden, about the death of her
son. Prince Louis.
At noon he asked for I--ince Bismarck, who
came and conversed with him on the political
situation. The Emperor spoke clearly, and thanked
the Chancellor for his services to tho country.
Increased feebleness soon followed, BttBBkdsd
with delirium. His voice became feebler and
feeble-*, finally sinking to a whisper.
At, 5 o'clock he was so weak that tho members
of the family, Prince Bismarck and Count von
Moltke, aud tho servants of the household gath?
ered around the bed. The Emperor, supported
by the doctors, held the hand of his wife on one
side and his dangin .r's hand on thc other. Prince
William stood alone at thc head of thc couch,
Chaplain Koegel spoke a few words of consola?
tion, to which the Emperor whispered occasional

At ;>::i0 o'clock thc patient manifested extreme
weakness, and death seemed imminent.
Suddenly tlie Emperor rallied, and asked for
Count von Moltke and I-"ince William with both
of whom he talked about thc state of the Army
und '.lu- Prussiiin people, entering into minute
[lartieulars when speaking of military matter;,
to thc astonishment of both his UfltCMIB. Ho then
referred to Germany's alliances with various coun?
tries and the possibility of war. But doling the
lattas portion of his remarks the fantasies of de?
lirium were mingled with coherent utterances.
This temporary recovery of strength lasted un?
til IO o.clock. At frequent intervals hs BMIVSBBed

passim; p_i_n____n_r away.
At about 2 o'clock it was observed that a serious
change was beginning to take place in thc Em?
peror's face, although there was again a slight
improvement in his condition. But at 7 o'clock it,
was seen that the Emperor's last moments were
near, the members of his family were, again sum?
moned to his bedside, and at 8:30 thc doctors
declared that he was dead.
Thc Emperor died holding tho Empress's hand.
He had liecn in a stupor sinoe three o'clock, dur?
ing which ho is reported to have exclaimed: " 1
nm n man of peace, but if Russia forces mn to war
I shall faithfully side with my ally, Austria.-'
Eye-witnesses of thc scone stato that during
tlie last few hours of his life, though partly con?
scious, he suffered no pain. The Em|_-ror was
in a half sitting position on a camp bedstead.
All the members ol the royal family took places
at tho bedside.
Tho room was crowded.
Prince William stood nearest the Emperor,
half bonding over the couch. Ho earnestly
watched thu face of the dying monarch until he
During the last thirty-six hours, says ono ac?
count, tJic E__i_-ror was drowsy, delirious and
conscious alternately, starting at times ex?
citedly to make remarks relative to family or
political mattots. Oneo he mistook Prince Bia*
marok for the Crown I_"incc, and taking his
hand, pleaded that he would always bo kind to
the Czar. Ho afterward recognized Prince Bis?
marck und expressed in broken sentences his
.-tet isl ii et ion With the Aunt nv<_ mian ullin nee.
During the last moments the I.mpirrur did nut,
suffer. His face wort- a tram-nil, almost smiling
expression. A few minutes before his death the
Emperor exclaimed:
" Fritz! dear Fritz!"
The evening papers contain what are reported
to be the last words spoken by the Emperor.
They are:
" Alexander has promised mo thnt he will
not make war against us."
It is reported that the Emperor also said:
" I am convinced that, we oiiRht, not to go lo
war with l.iissia, toward whom the most friendly
attitude ought to bs adopted."
The Emperor's body lies covered with a white
cloth on the bedstead on which ho died in tiie
Imperial Chamber. It is surrounded with cau?
dle*. The expression of the (Bee is extremely
peneeful and placid

Ono of those who were present tu the sink

the heavy BWOan into whloh he had fallen. Chap?
lain Koegel offered up a prayer, which i o:i*iste.t
mostly of BBitet-Oni from tlie Bible. The Em?
peror Interrupted him frequently with ths words
" That's right" and "Good I* When the Duchess
of Baden asked him if hs hsd heard the words
of tho clergyman he said " Yrs."
After tli- Emperor had partaken of a little
food he seemed very talkative and spoke with
Prince William, probably renewing a con versa ti on
which he had had with him In ths last few days.
Ile spoke in a Qlcar voice about the political situ?
ation and the military arrangameata of Oermany.
He mentioned that the reforms he had carried out
In the Army had been oopied in Fra noe. Ho
talked abott. Basal*, and expressed a strong
opinion that Oermany would not beeome Involved
In a war with that oountry. He spoke ia the
most friendly terms of tha AuBtrO-Jfrman rela?
tions, but lt ls nos certain whether ho wns con?
scious or wandering. The Duchess of Baden
begged him not to Ure himaelf.
He answered: ? I havo no time to be tired "
After a while, however, he fell asleep again,
aud awoks at about A u'dack. Um thea left bis

again and passed several quiet hours. During
the night he asked for champagne, which was given
him. Toward 4 o'clock he became weaker and
Prinoe Bismarck, Count von Moltke and Dr.
Koegel were again sent for. Tho two former te ft
the Palace about 7 o'clock.
Toward 11 o'clock lbs painter, Herr Anton vou
Werner, and the soulptor, Herr von Odis, jr., were
admitted to the death chamber. Tho body in tbs
meantiim; had been arranged and placed in a hall
sitting posture, while the Grund Duchess of Baden
had strewed flowers over the bed. Heir Werner
made a sketch of thc body and its surroundings
and Professor Ile gos cume later on to take au im?
pression of tho dead El_l>er(ir's face. A pln.t.? ,?
rapher was also admitted to the chambeS
and took a photograph of the decca*, al
