It Enjoins Them From Interfering With All Trains Carrying .all-Wlen Mar snala Head H Thar Were Hooted Bud Hissed at by the Mob. Chloago, July 2. The striking railway employes within the Jurisdiction of the United Bute court for this circuit, whloh inolndea Illlnoif and the greater jKrtionof Indiana and Wlsoonsln, are confronted' to-night with the most weeping Injunction that hot ever been ' tattled from a federal court under simi lar conditions. All last night United etatee Attorney Mllohrlst, in accordance . -with instruction! from Washington, was engaged in preparing a bill covering the . entire situation. When completed it . twvered no less than forty pages of type written legal oap 1 Immediately upon their arrival In this oity to-day Judges Wood and Grossoup repaired to the government building and the bill was submitted for xneir consideration, iwiwiu yybibxt, ' who has been oommisgioned as special i counsel for the government, took part in the conference. When the bill bad been roughly reviewed be raised the ob jection that It was drawn entirely upon the grounds of a violation of the inter- : state commerce act, whereas, according I to his own views, interference with , trains carrying the United States mails noma lorm toe salient learure. - The judges were inclined to take the same view and so the bill was returned ,to the lawyers for amendment. When the attorneys submitted the amend ed result of their labors it proved ac ceptable and the restraining order was promptly issued. In part, it reads as xollowa: ' E. V. Debs, George W. Howard, K IW. Rogers and the American Railway union; Silvester Klleher, Lloyd Hocb king, A. P. Pysabok, H. Elflne, James Hannan, John Mastebrook, William Smith, Edward O'Neill, Charles Nailor, John Duffy, William McMullen, E Shelby, Fred Ketcham, John Doyle, and tall other persons combining and con spiring with them, and all other per sons whomsoever, are enjoined abso lutely to refrain from Interfering or Stopping any of the business of any of the railroads In Chicago engaged as common carriers of passengers and freight between states and from inter rfering with mail, express or other trains, ; whether freight or passenger - trains engaged in interstate com merce, or destroying the, property, of any of the railroads from entering their trrouuds Tor -the mtrDose of ston- ?T 'ping trains jr Interfering with proper ty; from .compelling or inducing by E threats, persuasion or violence any of the employes of said roads to refuse or Efall to perform any of their duties as ft employes, of such road in connection R with Interstate commerce of such ra'il- V roads or the carrying of mails, passen gers or freight or attempting by threats uor . .intimidation any or tne employes rV-of such roads engaged in Interstate business or operation of mail trains to leave the service of such roads or pre venting any persons from entering the service of such roads. The order goes on at length In such b wording as to prove a veritable drag -net, completely covering any ueniun stration of violence or Interference whatever with trains on the grounds that such interference would be a hin drance -of .United States malls and t violation of , privileges granted rail roads under "the ' interstate commerce laws. Every road entering the city and affected by the strike, to a total of twenty-three, is specifically named and the employes thereof specifically en joined. Referring to the -scope of the order Judge Orosscup said: '-'It enjoins all strikers, their friends, sympathizers and those whom they may incite, from interfering in any way in the United States district of Northern Illinois, with the United States ' mails or. with any interstate commerce traffic, either passenger or freight. ' ."Those arrested for violation of the order. will be brought before the court and required to show cause why they should not be punished for contempt of court. The general managers of the railroads profess to believe that the injunction will. prove to be worthy of the designa tion given it by one of th judges, "a Catling gun on paper." ' Even personal -service is not abso- ' lutely necessary : to its . legal enforce- l mnU According to the law as expound ed by United States Attorney Milchrist ; to-night the publication of the decree in a widely circulated paper.its post ing in' a public place; where If. Is cer- .taln. to be read and Its contents dis seminated or the formal reading to a demonstrative crowd by a deputy mar SnaTmay be ruled upon as constitu ting sufficient service to place those guilty of a breach Of Its provisions un der the ban of the taw. Under this in terpretation thouands Of strikers might be arrested day after day and. be ar raigned and summarily dealt with for ' contempt of court, and this,', it is re ported. Is the policy that it is, Intended to pursue. . . . If it Is carried out there will be no need. It la believed, for the employment Of either state mHltla or federal troops. : A goodly force of deputy marshals arm ed with power to make arbitrary ar tests, and the knowledge on the part of the strikers, that.once within the clutch es of the law-peremptory sentence to prison for contempt instead of a pre liminary hearing, bail and a trial months -hence, .when the echoes of. the - strike may hafe aiea away, will be their portion, shoull. So reason the jallroaoi men, create such .a combination of cir cumstances, as to Induce the strikers to 'pause and reason-before proceeding fur tber In their present course. - , But the strikers themselves reason " differently. At their headquarters this . evening the interference of the federal I courts was denounced in vigorous lan ' SWe JX file Juutfreds fil rajraad that passed in and out.and the md, In telllKcnt -of the number voiced the en eral sentiment In the declaration nat the far reaching and dragnet character of the Injunction would tend toward de feating the very end to which it waa directed. Instead of induoing men return to work, it was contended, would result in driving thousands of members of railway organizations not afllllated with- the union nor apparent ly In sympathy with its present opera tlons, simply because these men would not tolerate to the orackling over their shoulders of their fellows of a government whip that some day or 'other, undec similar circumstances! might be used as a lash for their own shoulders. . The opinion was confidently expressed In the strikers' camp to-night that the engineers and firemen ,of every road that attempted to resume operations by virtue OT the injunction would Imme diately leave their posts. It was also asserted that it needed simply the for mal request of the officers of the union to bring out every man, woman and child In Chicago identified with organ Ised labor. Such a step, It was argued, could not result otherwise than in speedy and absolute victory for the la bor element. Such a situation and such an ending the leaders of the strike predict for the next twenty-four hours. Relative to the report that Debs is staking to compromise with Pullman John M. Eagau, manager of the General Managers' association, says: "The railroad companies donotreo- oituize in the strike the elements of 'Piillmanism' and will not have it inter jected into the question at any stage of any proposition. We have no compro mise to offer, and there is none that we mil accept. There is no Daonaown from our previously announced posi tion and we are filling the places of the strikers whom we no longer consider in our service." The Pullman oompany has also issued an official statement 'that the company has no compromise to offer and will not accept one. The managers say that ar rangements have been made for the im portation of from 1,600 to 2,000 men, mainly for railroad work in Chloago The plaoes of the men who struck and are striking are being tilled as last as possible, and the intent is to meet force with force. AU the roads are anxious fora display of military power. The following tele gram was sent to-day by Grand Master Workman Sovereign , of the K. of ii. to FresldentDebs of the American Rail way union: , ' "Have I left anything undone! Am willing to call a general strike." " ' The injunction issued by Judges Wood and Grossoup was brought : to Blue Is land on the 1 o'clock mail train by a posse "of deputy marshals. The order from the court' Waa handed to United Statei'ManUial Arnold who called upon the strikers to gather , around him and listen.' Three thousand men, -Wbmen and children quickly came wtthih1 hear ing' of .his voice. The marssral Stood on a car platform and read the iuiunotiou He was mtcrruptetl nfany times b de fiant and. profane language, hooting and derisive laughter. When he had finished Robert Mather, assistant counsel for the Rock Island road, made a speech explanatory of the injunction and the punishment . for contempt of it. He was shouted down and finally obeyed the frequent calls to "shut up." After this the strikers scattered ana officials of the rood went to dear the track. In an hour and a half the work was done. ' The moving cars swarmed with deputies inside and outside while being moved through the lines of ex cited strikers. The engine which was run by Superintendent of Motive Power Fitzsimmons was tilled with officers, The strikers were content to jeer and follow the oars into the yard. The only serious conflict which oc surred was when the first attempt was made to haul two cars on the street ;rossing. They were heavily guarded, -but the mob surged on the track in .'ornt of the engine and climbed on the platforms. Chief Deputy Marshal Lo an was caught by the arm and pulled to the ground.. He drew his pistol and attempted to arrest one of the men who pulled him off. The mob made a rush in .the direction of the marshal and someone struck him in the back with a knife, inflicting a slight wound. Mar- ral Arnold and several of his special deputies had their C.OatS torn by the 'strikers pulling them off the cars. - xne inuruimi ueciujea w aesist irom further efforts for the present, v Resist ance to the mob would have resulted in riot. After the mail train passed the strikers again , obstructed the track. When Marshal Arnold was informed of the block of the main track again he repeacea nis request lor troops by tele- rapnto wasnmgton. it is generally neiievea mat . tne ... miteenth united States infantry will be on hand to-mor row. At 13 o'clock to-night Marshal Ar nold's force was re-inforoed by 400 new cleputi js. Tb-hight the mob is in undis puted possession of vhe property of the Hock island railroad. , it is alleged that the mayor, the members ot the council, the local police, and private, citizens have done all that they could to ob- truot the traffic at Blue Island.

Foots have been brought to light to-day In the case of Mr. Mitchell Baker, who murdered her four children nt Montgomery last Saturday, tending to show that the crime was premeditated and- not com mitted while crazed by morphine, m Mrs. Bukor claims. The woman's bus baud declares thajt be believes - she killed the children and then took mor phine to kill herself. The children were strangled with strips of cttlloo. Mr. Baker discovered his wife outting out the strips the day before the murder, and asked what they were for. She tried to conceal the cloth, but finally said she wanted it to tie the children's little bundles of clothes. Several times Mrs. Baker has said to her nearest neighbor that she would kill the children If her husband attempted to take them from her. Mr. Baker was warned, but says he paid no attention to It for, although he knew his wife was a bad woman he did not believe she would do it. Mrs. Baker attended the Episcopal church In Montgomery, when she went anywhere, and admitted' to day to Rev. A. B. Flenders that she killed the baby first. She declares, however, that she remembers nothing after this. , . - - Mrs. Baker's story of what took place Friday night and her husband's story do not agree. She claims ahe took mor phine in the night, that It made her sick and she walked the floor all night Mr. Baker occupied a' room be neath his wlfe's.and says she was asleep when he came in, and that he heard no noise in the night. ' Mrs. Baker comes from a family to which crime is no stranger. When ar rested after the murder her hair looked as if it had not been combed for months, and was so matted together that It was necessary to cut off a portion. Her. per son waa very filthy. Mrs. Baker says she will never be tried, for, if all other means of suicide fail, she will starve herself to death, THE riNAX, TOTE TO-DAY. managers of the Tariff Bill ias Hoaa of a ; Decisive Vote on the Measure.

Tbe Investigation Into Garbage Con t motor Walter 8. Sway no's charges of tualfeeanoe In offloe against Health Officer T. W. Wright und Clerk Ward Bailey, was resumed In tbe oounoll manic chamber last evening before the members of the board of health, Tbe hearing waa unusually Interesting and was listened to with rapt attention by a large number of oitlzens. Although the meeting, was cauea tor :owolock, it was considerably later thuu that wbon the hearing commenced, owing to the absence of the mayor, who was at tho meeting of tho board of aldermen on tbe floor below. Finally Mayor Sargent put In ah appearance and the bearing began. Judge Cable was tho first wit ness of tho evening. He testified: "I am acquainted with Ward Bailey. Have known him about thirteen years. One afternoon during Juno he came to the judge's room In the city court and we had a talk about this case. Prior to that time I had ruoeivod a communication from him wjilch he presented to me whtlo I was on the bench trying a case. This was on June 12. The note rend: 'Will you step up stairs after tbe ad journment of court I wont to see you on important business. ' The same af ternoon, about an hour later, Mr.Butlcy came to the judge's oftice and asked if Swayne had told me what be wanted of the money which he got from me. told him no. Then followed a conver sation about Williams of Bridgeport and some harness. I also think he said something about it being lucky for him that be had said something to Inspector Jackson about receiving the check and money. I think Bailey appeared down oast when he oame to see me. I have never seen him since." "You may imagine," said Attorney Hamilton to the counsel for the other side. ''We don't oare to," replied At torney Ely. "Thank you, judge. Judge Cable then left the stand. Mrs. Swayne, wife of the contractor, was tbe next witness. She said: "My name is Sarah Swayne. I am the wife of Walter 8. Swayne. On the morning of May 23rd 1 was driving on Orange street with my husband. As we were driving along my husband said 'there is Dr. Wright.' He immediately got out of the carriage and walked over to Dr. wright s oarriage. They engaged in conversation, but I did not hear any of tt until about the time that I heard money mentioned. '' I distinctly beard the conversation about the money. J heard my husband promise to give Dr, Wrlgh't $200 on the: next, pay day and heard Dr. Wright say that will be all right.' Attorney Asher cross examined the witness. The witness said that she had never., seen ' Dr. Wright before. Dr. Wright was pointed out to her by Attor ney Asher, but. she failed to recognize him. In explanation of this circum stance she sold that she was very near sighted and did not have her glasses on when the carriage stopped and the conversation took place- between her husband and Dr. . Wright.. She said that as well as she could recollect it was between 9 and 10 o'clock when they met Dr. Wright, but could not tell how she fixed the time. To the ma jority of questions, put to her by At torney Asher she replied "I don't know. I don't recollect." "Attorney Asher attempted in every way possi ble to refresh her memory, but about all-he could succeed in getting out of her were the two brief phrases above reported.. We rest," said Attorney Hamilton, The defense asked for a few minutes in which to decide upon the manner, in which to put up their defense. After a very , brief 'interval the hearing was re sumed. Miss Alice Brown of 395 Temple street was the first witness for the defense. She testified that about June 11 she went to the office of the board of health with Mayor Sargent and heard a con versation between Clerk Bailey and Mayor Sargent. The conversation was in conneotion with - the letter sent by Ulerk Uniley to Contractor Swayne. Attorney Hamilton . ob.ieotcd to the witness giving the conversation anft At torney Ely claimed it. After a lone and at times heated argument, at tbe conclusion of which tbe board decided to admit the evidence, the witness re sumed. ' i I went into the office and took a seat. The mayor asked some question about a cliurt that was ou the wall. I don't know what reply was made- He then asked something about whether I had made any complaint to which the clerk replied that I had. The mayor asked -the clerk to tell the contractor to come and sec him ' and the clerk told him that he would do so." On cross- examination she said that her garbage badmot been ooileotea properly and she was there to make complaint. She did not see any letter to Swayne nor did she know anything About its contents. William Russell, Clark, a reporter on the Register, was the next witness. In reply to questions by Attorney Asher, Mr. Clark stated that he had had sev eral interviews with' Mr. Swayne1 and that he had written the artiole in ques tion in the Register. He then said: "I don't care to say much of anything in connection with this case, but to the best of my. knowledge and belief tho statements made in that artiole are true as I received them from Mr. Swayne." V ' r.vM.t; , Attorney Hamilton objeoted to the admission of this evidence, but the board decided to" admit it, Mayor Sar gent saying: "We will aooept it as a newspaper statement. We'll . take - It for what it's worth, a reporter's re port. - , ',-f v -v. - I didn't come bere to be insulted." indignantly replied Mr. Dark. "I take that statement as an insult to the nro fession of a reporter." , , "Well, you needn't," replied the mayor. .-. , - . a. I most ocrtalnlv do." answered Mr. , Attoruoy Axhur defended the ejacula tion of Mr. Ulurk by stating that Mr. Clark's statement as to bis Interview with Swayne was entitled to hs much oredlt as tho testimony of Judge Cable or any other witness who might give testimony In reference to' an Interview On cross-examination by Attorney Hamilton, Mr. Clark stated tbut be had snvoral Interviews with Mr. Swayne at Swayne's residence, and that Mr. gwayuo bad called at tho Register oftlre and read the proof of tbe story before it appeared in the paper. In reply to a request for tbe orluluul notes from Commissioner Mauulug, Re porter Clark stated that ho bad the original notes, but declined to give them up. "You did not uk quostions of Mr. Swayne In the samo way thut 1 did, did you, Mr. Clarkr" queried Attorney Hamlltou. "I don't kuow how you questioned him," replied Mr. Clark, "but if you conduoted it as you usually do, I cer tainly did nut." This sally was pro ductive of considerable suppressed latKhler. Tho wltnoss then stated that when he showed Mr. Swayne the proof of the ar tiole he asked III in if it was all right und Mr. Swayne replied, "It Is all right." Mr, Clark then read brief extraots from his original notes, which In every in stance were exactly as printed in the paper. On cross-exninluallon by Attorney Ely tbe witness stated that be had had an lutorvlew with Clerk Bailey In refer ence to the ohargos prior to the appear auoe of the artiole iu the Register. His testimony on this point was in reference to Mr. Bailey's denial of the oharges, substantially as was printed in the Reg ister. In reply to questions ' by Attorney Hamilton Reporter Clark stated that he hud heard the intimation that tome thing wue wrong in the board of health, or as he expressed it, "got bis tip from a man occupying an official position in the oity." He also stated that as he re membered it, Bailey told him that Swayne had said that he owed a man named Williams of Bridgeport 125 for a harness and he was going to come up and attaoh his pay. In order to ward this off he, Swayne, had left tbe CIS with him. Bailey, and asked him to give it to Williams when be oame for It. He also testified that to the best of his knowledge and belief Bailey bad told him that there was no one present when tho check was given him. Attorney S.Harrison Wagner testified that on the afternoon ot June 12 he. was in the offlco of the board of health about 2:30, when Clark was telling Bailey about the charge. He heard Clark say, 'that's a pretty serious charge," and Bailey 'replied,-"well, I should say it wss. That man Swaynl must be craay, if be says anything of that kind. Why, here's the check and money which Swayne left -with me foe,4 man named Williams." Clerk Bailey was apparently very much excited and indignant, and told Clark' that he did not rfean to dictate the poIicyuntter; wmcn the Register should be run,, but that it was a serious charge, and there was not the slightest foundation for any such charges. Then Clark went out and Bajley and Wagner engag'bd in a conversation about the case. At torney Hamilton objected to the ad mission of this evidence but it was ruled in. - ' Continuing, the witness said: "Mr, Bailey excused himself for! his being excited, but said that he had just learned of the serious charges and that it came upon him all at once. Bailey said that Swayne had left tbe money with him for some Williams of Bridge port. I understood, also, from Mr. Bai ley that Mr. Swayne had told him that he had made arrangements with Wil liams to get his money from Clerk Bailey. George Jefferson testified that he re sided on Day street, and was a special constable and janitor of Warner ball. He testified that he wss acquainted with Dr. Wright. He swofs that he had seen Dr. Wright at the medical conven tion held in Warner half on the morn ing of May 23. Wright arrived, at the hall at 8:45. and remained there until 10:45. "I know it was-that time as a telegram came for another doctor to the hall at that time, and- I got Dr. Wright to sign for it. I know that Dr. Wright remained in the hall all -the time from 8:45 o'clock until 10:45 o'clock." This testimony was introduced to re but the testimony given by Contractor Swayne to the effect that he met Dr. Wrfght on Orange street on the morn ing of May 23. between 9 and 10 6'olock, when the S200 deal is alleged to have been made. On cross examination by Attorney Hamilton the witness stated that he had not spoken upon the sub ject to anyone, but later acknowledged that he had sDOken about it tn ri- Wright and Attorney Asher last Satur ray night. ,i Health Inspector Eldridge testified that he was at a meeting of the board of health on the evening of May 22. He saw Swayne leave the meeting that night shortly before it adjourned, but Health Officer Wright did not leave with him. This was Introduced to disprove tbe statement of Swayne's that he and Wright came out of the meeting together and held a whispered conversation in the hall. The witness waa subjected to a rigid cross examina tion by Attorney. Hamilton, but his evi dence in chief remained practically un shaken. Martin Conlan, an employe of the board of health, testified that he saw Dr. Wright and Mr. Swayns at the meet ing of the board May 22. The witness corroborated Mr. Eldrldge's statement in reference to Swayne's leaving the room prior to the adjournment of the meeting and the fact that Health Officer Wright remained until the close of the meeting some time later. . - At the conclusion of . Mr. Conhin's evidence the meeting adjourned until Friday evening, July 13, at 8 o'olock. The long continuance is due to the fact that Attorney Hamilton leaves the city to-morrow for a week's trip with his family. It was within a few minutes of midnight when last night's meeting I .adjourned '..j.t l:Y -t -V DOWN INTO A ROCKY GORGE.

Bangor, Me., July 2 About 7 S, m. terrible wreck occurred to the Montreal express going east on the Canada Paelflo road on a trestle over the west outlet t Moutehcad lake, some twelve miles from Greenville. The train was pro. ceedlng at it ordinary rate of speed wben it struck the trestle. Tbe engine, baggage car, mail, seoond-olai and smoking cars went over tbe trestle Into a rocky gorge some twenty-five feet below. It was a wooden trestle, with an Iron hridge in the centre. About) forty feet of the western end of the trestle collupsed. The sleep Ing our was tbe only one that did not go into tbe gorge, but wad throwu on its side in the gulley. A scene of indescribable confusion followed. The first three cars were tele scoped, the tops torn off, timbers ware wrenched to pieces, great rails were twisted like twigs, and baggage and boxes were mixed up and broken. The passengers numbered twenty-three. They were terribly frightened and few escaped without bruises ot some sort, A wrecking train was sent- from Brownville Junction as soon as pos sible. The wounded were extricated form the wreck, a hospital was Impro vised and wounds were attended to as well as possible. The dead and Injured were aferwards put aboard a car and taken to Greenville Junction, where they were carried to Moosehead Inn, Coroner W. H. Hanson of Jackman was notified. He soon arrived on the scene and started an inquest. It was found that nine had been killed. Opinions as to the cause of the wreck differ. Some claim it was caused by the giving way. of the western end of the trestle, while others olaim that a; sleeper was placed on the track on the-i trestle, with the intent of wrecking the ; train. Certain, It is, that a new sleeper was found with marks of wheels on It and many firmly believe it was the cause. The fireman jumped from the train, which would give color to the theory of an obstruction which he must have seen as the train was about to strike It.
