t expect anything President Debs wee more
cast down than any of the others I was In the
c discretion of the Court sentence the menU

All of the defendants were In court with the
exception of Goodwin whose whereabouts Is not
known and who could not therefore b notified
The Injunction Issued on July 2 hy Judge
Woods and Orosscup forbade all the men to in <
terfere wlth > tralnsln any way whatsoever I
was claimed by the United States At
torney that Dcba and other officers and direc
tors of the American Hallway Union repeated
Tlolate this order of the court by Issuing direc
tions to their lieutenants all over the country
to call out the men and advising the crippling
of the complete railroad system of the United
tales If possible The defence was mae that
Dcba and his asslttnnts had a right to order
strikes and to continue to conduct their side ol
the Ihbt against the railroads
Judges Woods and Grosscup were both on the
bench when the decision was given They sat
a in the United States Court of Appeals and mv
several decisions of minor importance before
Judge Woods came to the decision for which the
crowd was waiting Judge Woodat decision
was of the Circuit Court however and the
Court of Appeals wa formally adjourned and
the Circuit Court convened before derision was
The question whether the court had jurisdic
tion was first discussed In the decision and this
question after citing numerous authorities the
Judge decided In the affirmative lie defended
the issuance of the Injunction on the ground
that eminent authorities had decided that the
court had I right to Intervene where Irreparable
4 damage might result before the tardiness of the
t law I could remedy matters Judge Woods de
clined to decide whether he had jurisdiction
under the InterState Commerce at and took
up the Shertnan AntiTrust law under which
the action against Deb chiefly based One
of the sections of this law male I an offence
to restrain commerce In anyway The Judge
decided that United States cur h full juris
diction under this act to punish all the offenders

precedent therb1
In his decision Judge Woods ealdi
Without going into the details of averment
the charge made against the defendants was
that they were engaged in conspiracy to hinder
and interrupt InterStat commerce and the
carriage of the mla upon the railroads can
tring in Chicago by means and in a manner t
constitute within the recognized definitions
a public nuisance
A nuisance I anything that unlawfully
worketh hurt Inconvenience or damage 3
Blackstones Commentaries 2101 A public
nuisance is such an Inconvenience or trouble
some offence as annoy the whol community
Combinations are condemned not only When
they takn the form of tnt but In whatever
1 I fOlm found if they be In restraint of trade That
la the effect of the words or otherwise I have
it I no doubt tnt thlattementln 1 far as It I di
rected against contracts or combinations In the
1 form of trust or In any fonn > of a contractual
character should b limited t contracts and
combinations such In their general character
istics a the courts have declared unlawful Hut
t put any such limitation upon the word con
spiracy Is neither necessary nor a I think per
missible To do e would deprive the word of
nil significance Any proposed restraint of trade
though It be In Itself Innocent I It Is t be accomplished
I com 1 he by conspiracy is unlawful
The fact of this case suggest Illustrations of
the Impropriety a well a Inconsistency of put
ting upon the statute the restrictive construc
tion proposed If for example the manufac
turer of other sleeping can In their own Inter
est should enlist the brakemen and switchmen
or other employees of the railroads either Indi
vidually or in associated bodies In a conspiracy
to prevent or restrain the use of Pullman sleep
ers by rtollnl to move them by secretly un
coupling them or by other elusive lecrt1 the
monopolistic character of the conspiracy would
be 1 evident that even on the theory that the
I statute Is I aimed at contracts or combinations In
tended to engrow or monopolize the market I
I punishable would ba agreed that the offence ought t b
Hut If In such a case the officers or agents of
the car companies who might or might not b
capitalists would be Individually responsible
clplllst b IndtTldnalr repnllbl
for violating the statute upon what principle
p could the firemen or switchmen b exempt T
Can worklngmen or If you will poor men act
ing by themselves upon their own motion and
for their own purposes whether vowed or
secret do things forbidden by the statute with
out criminal responsibility and yet be criminal
ly respoutlble for the same things don at the
InstAiir and to promote the purposm of others
The persistent effort of the defendant as
the proof shows Was to force the railroad corn
I pan fcs the largest capitalists of the country to
cooperate or at least to acquiesce in a scheme
to stop the Pullman sleepers and for a time
I they bed the agreement of a manager and other
officers of one t quit the use of the obnoxious
cars and perhaps a qualified submission of the
omur of another road or two to the same dicta
tion Does the r innocence of the defend
I I ants of the charge of conspiracy under this
statute depend on the proof there may b of
I their success In drawing to the support of their
design those who may b called capitalists or
does It depend on the character of the design it
sxlf and upon what has been done toward Its I
accomplishment by themseUm and by those In
voluntary cooperation with Ullm from what
ever employment or walk In life 1
I have not failed I think to appreciate the
just force of the argument t the contrary of
my opinion It has sometimes entangled me In
doubt but my conclusion Is clear that under
the act of 1HUO the court has jurisdiction of the
I cjuo presented tn the application and that the
Injunction granted was not without authority
of law nor for any reason Invalid
This brings me to the question of tact Did
the defendants violate this injunction V Their
conuuctonly Is In question all their admissions
are quoted because they confirm the inference
ar quote other evidence that no essential
voluntary modification of their course of action
either followed or was caused by the injunction
ii Their original inteption I la I true was only t
I prevent the use of Pullman cal but Undine as
FI they did Immediately that that aim would b
If thwarted by the discharge from service of men
ii who refused t handle thesa cars they began A
u early as June 37 the day after the boycott was
proclaimed to Issue orders t strike and from
that time to the end to the extent of their abil
ity they conducted and controlled the strike
with penlstent consistency of purpose and with
unvarying methods of action
As officers of the American Railway Union
i It Is I beyond question that the defendant had
I practical control of the strike guiding as they
chose the movements of the men actively en
giiged Ljvder the conditions of last I summer
when there were many Idle men seeking em
ployment It Wtf Impossible that strike t
I hat at a general cessation of business upon
the railroads if the country could succeed with
out violence and I is I not t b believed that the
Ia defendants entered upon the execution of their
scheme without appreciating the fact and with
out determining how to deal with It
I fie Inrrel therefore I a fair one aside
from direct evidence 10 the point that they ex
r pected and Intended that this strike should differ
r from other only In magnitude of design and
f I boldness of execution and that the accustomed
j accessories of Intimidation and violence so ta
at least as > found essential to success could not
I omitted For that much the striking work
I men aUDI on tho pruuipllnKSOf self Interest
without instigation or direct suggestion and
I even In spite of admonitions t the contrary
I may ordinarily b counted upon Buch admonl
is thins against violence were enl out occasional
i ly by the defendants but It doc not appear that
they were ever heeded and I am not eLla to be
ll > on Its evidence that lu the fullest Muse It

The original conspiracy anatntt the nseo
Pullman cars became a conspiracy attains
transportation and travel by railroads upon
their own authority wlthopt consulting the 10
ell 1 unions the defendants converted the boycott
Into a strike and with the aid of their follow
elrll tolu
crc come of whom slopped at no meant between
the drawing nt a coupling pin mid the under
mining of a bridge whereby men should lx
liUrlnFto death they tiassed the strike t the
conditions which prevailed when the Interven
tion of the court was asked and which In the
ton compelled the employment of military
force to reestablish peace and start again the
activities of commerce
Much hal been said bntwlthoutproofof
wrongs of the workmen at Pullman or an alliance
ance of the Pullman Company and the railroad
managers to depress walt and generally to co
operate In oppression and arrogance Hit I Is
evident that these things whatever tho facts
might have been proved or Imagined t be could
furnish neither Justification nor palliation for
giving up a city to disorder and for paralyrlng
the Industries and commerce of the country
The Court therefore finds the defendants
guilty of tho offences as cnarged In the Indict
ments In both cases and will llx the punish
ment the same in both cases but will not make
It cumulative I have not yet written down nny
punishment for these men I know only two of
hem by sight Ae this Is i criminal case I de
fire to give each one of the defendants a chance
to peak t me aud say what he will
Then Attorney Darrow spoke for the nine de
fendants I
These defendants have nothing today They
believe that they did right In ordering and
continuing this strike Two of these defendant
Mr McVean and Mr Elliott took no active part
In this strike although they were both directors
In the Hallway Union Their names were not
mentioned In the evidence
All of the defendants present then stood up so
that the Court could see them They did not
appear to b agitated There was considerable
argument between counsel on technical points
before the Court passed sentence as follows
I think I will suspend any sentence with re
gard t Mr McVean lam of the opinion that
Jr Elliott was actively engaged In this strike
PunIshment should not b vindictive Neither
should I b trivial The object of punishment
for contempt of court Is to prevent further con
tempt My conclusion Is that tho Injunction
was right Mr Deb Is more responsible than
anybody ele lie Is a man of marked ability
and of strong character and the leader of these
men I was In his power by merely lifting his
voice to stop all there disturbances I shall
therefore discriminate between him and the rest
of the defendants I will give Mr I Dab six
month In the county jail and the rest three
months this sentence to take effect ten days
from now
The convicted officers and directors of the
American Hallway Union had I conference with
their attorney Clarence t Darrow In the lat
tirs office this afternoon a to tho best way of
future proceeding Attorney Harrow mid he
did not think there was any doubt they bed the
right of appeal although an appeal Is not usual
in such cases Another plan and one that will
probably b adopted Is to ek the Supreme
Court for a habeas corpus This can b done
Mr Darrow Bld without going through the In
termediate Court of Appeals Uefore the ten
days have expired Attorney nArrow will have
mapped out some line of procedure
Deb said Until this decision Is I reversed
there I no use attempting to have another
strike The decision Is i a line Invitation t the
railroads to reduce wages and I dont believe
they will neglect to take advantage of It I
they shoul do so God help the poor employee
He will have no recourse but to peaceably quit
work and peaceably starve If he asks any
body else to join him he will probably bo con
fronted by an Injunction and put Into jail for a
year or s This will stop every sort of strike
The power of these United State Judges lent
the most autocratic character They have tho
right to try a man sentence him and Impose
any sentence they ere good and proper This
whole country Is ruled by the railroads and the
United States Judges only do the will I of the
Then growing jocnlar Deb added
There Is one consolation I suppose we will
have our choice of jails tuppse
Darrow assured him that they would a the
sentence says In the county Jail Debs will
go to jail at Terre Haute his home and the
other will b pretty well scattered over the
country Hogan will select Ogden Uth as a
place to spend his term

The series uf defalcations In the banks has IK
t many informal conferences or talks among
bank officers In New York city and elsewhere
In very many banks new and more modern s
terns of bookkeeping have been establIshed I

cipline yet undertaken and to Insist on Its em
ployees living according t a rule laid down by

VicePresident Kuctne H Pnllen by and with
the consent ot President Oliver 8 Carter has
announced to the clerks just what they must
do Mr Pollen has had frequent talks with the
clerks which they considered lectures and he
gave them another lecture yesterday afternoon
He declares that the clerks must not be seen In
barrooms and mutt not drink In public places
day or evening 10 a SUM reporter Mr Pullen
explained his new Ideas
There are ilftyfive clerks In this bank he
said and up tn date I have talked with seven
teen of them I will talk with the others day by
day There Is I no disposition tn I > harsh with
them but I have Informed them that this Is a
time when bank officers and clerks are being
watched 1 do not bollevo that the clerks In
this bank should be seen In barrooms In the
evening drinking I do lot object to a mans
taking a drink I he wants I but let him takolt
at home One little chap in this bank was ap
parently getting luto bail habits My talk with
him was calculated t save him
There Were reports tn the effect that some of
the clerks demurred t Mr Pullens strictures
on their personal conduct and that they had
been told II obey or travel the bank Mr Pullen
said that the reports wcrn not true U was fur
ther saul that thn clerks In the bank had been
told that they must quit the bon ling club which
Is i organized among tim clerks of the old Hank
Clerk Association Mr Pullen said this also
was not true In fact he added that hn wasnt
aware that there fat a bowling club
Hut never mind about all reports or that
lut relrtR
character continued Mr Pollen I do not
believe that our clerks should bo around nights
drinking In barrooms It will not make them
good clerks This affair though I one which
concerns the domestic workings of the bank
and can have no nubllo Interest
Mr James A Blair one of the directors I of the
bank said
The Hank of the Republic is I not a Young
Mens Christian Association or a Sunday school
to train voting men In the ways of righteous
ness I any such rule has been made It has
been dons without this directors knowledge I
am Chairman of the Hank Committee and I
know nothing about It In common with all
bank and trust companies when we hire I young
man we warn him to leave Honor and gambling
and pool l rooms alone and If we find him dis
obeying why we tIre him Hut I dont think we
object to them going tn bowling alleys or into a
saloon once ina while
