NEW HAVEN CONN., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1894 THE CARRINGTON PUBLISHING CO. TESTIMONY AGAINST DEBS. ' JT.iT. VXXMT RECEIVED ORDERS TO TIB VP IBM BIO TOUR. Engineer and Fireman Testified They Ift Their TnlM at Instance or Striker Government to Have a Card la Dab rrlrsU Secretary. Chicago, Sept 7. When court opened to-day In the American Railway union cases Attorney Erwln objected to the tesUmony of the flrst witness, P. L. Krelger of Milwaukee, on the ground that he might be on of the men In dicted by a federal grand Jury for some offence during the strike. , "I understood," Mid Mr, Erwln, "that a number of men who have been In dicted have been lubpoenaed to testify In this case." The witness assured the court that he had not been Indicted and was al lowed to proceed. The court ruled, however, that men who were Indicted Bright be put on the stand, but could not be compelled to give testimony incriminating themselves. Among those who will testify are James Hogan and W.E. Burns. Both are defendants In this case. Mrs. Hogan will also be called. The government, however, expects to bring one of Its greatest cards In the witness L. P. Benedict, Mr. Debs' pri vate secretary, who has been sub poenaed. Mr. Benedlot signed many of the telegrams sent over the name of "E. V. Debs." The government expects to prove by, him that Ilebs sent at least some of the telegrams which have been read. Benedict is not under in didtment. Krelger testified that he had seen a telegram from Debs dated July 4 ask ing the switch-tenders to strike. Only ten of them did so. Krelger was con fused on cross-examination. He ac knowledged that he had been sent here as a witness by the Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul road. The de fence objected to every question asked of Krelger and finally moved to have all of his testimony stricken out The motions were all overruled. William Mackay, an engineer of Mil waukee, and Charles E. Mills, a fireman from the same place, both of the Chi cago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road, testified that they had left their trains at the instance of strikers, who intimi dated them. Mr. Mills said he was forced to join the American Railway union, after leaving his engine. - J. ; R. Trimar, a train-master on the Pan Handle road, testified to the-- removal from 'Chlcftso of a. train load nf AanA animate, inn Taxing away or, wnicn Jar. Debs issued an official order to those un der his control. W. I. Henry testified In regard to re ceiving telegrams signed R. V. Debs "calling him to tie up the Big Four road system." Mr. Henry "refused' to call out his men. H. E. Sarber of Gar rett, Ind., an employe of the Balti more and Ohio, told about receiving a telegram signed "E. V. Debs," which requested him to work among the men tin that road with a view to having them strike. Joseph Dillingham, also an employe of the Baltimore and Ohio at Garrett, Ind., was cross-examined with the object of proving the existence of a black list. Dillingham admitted that the com pany would not re-employ members of the American Railway union. Attorney Erwln Informed the court that sub poenas had been served on the defend ants to produce all the American Rail way union private documents and asked for a ruling, The court said it was lnollned to rule against the govern ment, but would hear from that side next Tuesday. Several witnesses testified as to at tacks by strikers on trainmen. Henry Swan, a Rock Island fireman, testified that when the federal Injunction was read at Blue Island the mob jeered all the time and hooted at Marshal Arnold and Deputy Allen, who read it. One man yelled "to hell with the United States government To hell with the United States courts." Another witness saw the injunction notice puiiea aown and torn In nieces. Attorney Erwln made an impassioned speech, objecting to the admission of testimony showing mob violence, show ing It would tend to create public sen timent against the defendants anil that this might influence the court to train a point and punish them, be cause of a publlo outcry. The court in -reply assumed all re sponsibility. Baee War In Bridgeport. Bridgeport, Sept 7. A race war that came nearly ending In a lynching oc curred this evening at Black Rock.

It was at first thought that Watklns was fatally woHnded, and fourteen colored men who were employed as laborers at the resort rushed for Cunningham and tried to hang him. He was rescued by Proprietor Smith of the hotel, and the police sent for from this city. They ar rived there in the middle, of the excite ment and arrested Cunningham. Burglar In Bank. Randolph, N. Y Sept 7. Robbers en tered the state bank at Randolph at an early hour this morning and made' an attempt to rob the safe. They burst oft the lock to the vault with a sledge ham mer and punch, and then tried to blow open the safe with dynamite. They suc ceeded in drilling through two plates of chilled steel,' but were unable to pene trate the third, and left without secur ing any booty. The vault Is a complete wreck, ; There is no. clue to the robbers. CARLISLE ISHVES A CIRCULAR. Re Explain, the Marking of Good. Under the New Law. Washington, Sept 7. Secretary Car lisle to-day Issued an official circular regarding the marking, etc.. of goods under section 5 of the new tariff law in regard to which much uncertainty of construction has existed. The sec retary quotes the section and says: This section differs from section I of the act of October 1, 1890, (McKlnley law) In requiring a statement of the quantity of contents and In withholding delivery of goods until they shall be duly marked, etc la order to afford a reasonable time for compliance with the above section It will be enforced, so far as relates to the statement of quantities merely upon merchandise shipped from abroad after August 28, 1894. The department holds that the Indi cation of the country of origin under this section need not necessarily be restricted to the declaration of the name of such country, but may be accepted under whatever form, provided the goods containing unmistakable evidence of their origin without misleading marics or signs. It Is held that the requirement in respect to quantity or contents applies to packages and not to separate ar ticles. To Interpret the description oterwlse would involve the measure ment of every spool of cotton and gaug ing of every bottle of wine. It may be inferred that the purpose of this enact ment was the protection of the con sumer from loss by fraudulent over- sepriUBnb jo jaqinnu eqi jo )uauia)Y)g contained In any imported package of fered for sale. Certain classes of goods are, respec tively, put up In jackages of recognized and uniform quantities. A mere in spectlon of such packages will suffice to determine the fact of their conform ity, or non-conformity as the case may be with the established practice of the trade. As, for example, ordinary bags of coffee and barrels of flour have regular sizes and capacities and do not require explicit statements In order to indicate the quantities of contents. It is the purpose of the department so to construe the section that without an examination unnecessary obstruc tion and hardship to importers may be avoided. Chief officers of the customs are hereby authorized to decide in accord ance with the above instructions with out reference to the department ques tions, arising under the administration of the section above specified.

Masonlo hall on Webster street was not half large enough last night to ac commodate the Ninth ward republicans. There were several conflicting elements represented and each was out In full force. During the contest the hand of ex-Councilman John F. Moore was plainly discernible and he worked most assiduously against some of the noml nees put on the slate. The contest commenced at the very outset of the caucus. Promptly at o'clock the meeting was called to order by Ward Chairman Joseph P. Peaker. Nominations for chairman were called for and the fun began In earnest At torney Edwin C. Dow and ex-Judge Joseph Sheldon were nominated. The result of the vote was announced as follows: E. C. Dow 131 votes and ex- Judge Sheldon 74, with one scattering. A few minutes later Councilman Geo. F. Booth was unanimously chosen sec retary. It was then unanimously voted that all the delegates, sixty In number, should be elected by ballot and the nomination of delegates was called for. Some eight or ten names had been placed in nomination when ex-Judge Sheldon arose and endeavored to Intro duce a resolution, stating that he want ed to know whether or not the delegates named were In favor of the nomination of General Merwln for governor. "You will find that out later on," was shouted by someone from the floor, and as Chairman Dow decided that the judge was not speaking on the motion before the house he was ruled out of order. The ex-Judge Immediately took an appeal from the decision of the chair but his appeal was not sustained and he took his seat. The balloting for delegates was then commencea ana resuuea as ioiiows: State George K. Rose, George F. Booth, J. H. Wilklns, George P. Butler. T. J. Griffin, R. H. Brown, Frank E.

It was the first time that they have been held under the ne,w republican rules, and the bal lot iboxes were opem from 6 o'clock until 9.

A. captured four of the delegates, while in other wards there were shown an A. P. A. movement that has never been seen before. There were from two to four tickets In each of the wards.

Depew Will Not Ron for Gov ernor or New York. London, Sept. 7. Mr. Chauncey M. Depew was seen at the Hotel Savoy this afternoon by a press representa tive who asked him whether he would accept the republican nomination for governor of the state of New York. Mr. Depew said : "I am not a candidate for the nomination. Before I left New York leading men of the different fac tions of the republican party called on me and said that If I would accept no other name would be put In nomina tion. I at that time positively declined. Since then I have received a large num ber of letters and cablegrams on the subject' "Much as I like politics my business interests are too great and the respon sibility of my different trusts cannot be resigned which, If I accepted the nomination would be necessary. I will not say that under no circumstances would I accept the nomination, because there are circumstances under which I might, but It Is hardly possible that they will arise. My relations have al ways been friendly with Mr. Morton, but It does not matter who may be the nominee of the party, he will have my heartiest support. "The coming election will decide the next presidential contest, and I have no doubt of the success of our party. I do not mean that we will have a walk-over. I expect a good fight, and believe that the element of factions will be eliminated from this election by both parties. Tammany Hall will sur render to Cleveland In order to retain Its hold on the offices. "As for the financial condition, I think we have reached the bottom." Short in Hia Accounts. Canton, O., Sept. 7.

New York, Sept. 7. The big clothing workers' strike here Is not settled, aswas reported this morning. In fact the sit uation Is worse than ever, notwith standing the contractors have adopted the strikers' terms. A. Harrison, a prominent member of the United Broth erhood Tailors' union, said to-day: "The strike Is only beginning, and the reported settlement is a false statement by someone who wishes to Injure us. A number of contractors signed our agreements.but we discovered that they were signed through the influence of the manufacturers for the purpose of filling their orders and then compel the men to return to the old 'sweating' system.
