One of Ue Msst Seisatlosal Peatnrej
la the HUtorj or tht
Chicago. III., Jan 2ft. In the
Superior Court this morning, Judge
sSkepard issael an injanctioa agaiaat
savant ol the Laks Shore striking
switchmen on an affidavit signed by
r. P. Wr'Kht, general superintendent.
In bis affidavit Mr. Wright charged
that on April 12, 1880, the defendants
made a request in writing which they
presented to (he company, asking (or
the ducharge of tight men. The com
rny refuted to grant tbe request on
the ground that, with one exception,
the eight men had been in the employ
o! the company from ten to eighteen
years. The only complaint made by
the defendant! against the objectiona
ble men was that they had remained
in the employ of the couipauy daring
the strike of 1871. The allidavit goes
on to say that the company cannot
discharge the eight men; they cannot
tike them ont of the employ of the
road as switchmen and yardmastera
without sending them out of the Slate ;
thoy are all meu who have families to
support and the company cannot pnt
them in any other lino of employment
inwhich they can make i much money.
It is then charged that the strikers are
interfering with tne business of the
company in its capacity of common
carii-r; tint the company is ready to
pay the strikers what money is due
them ; that they bava no right on the
premues of the company except to
collect what is due them, and th.t
they can get the amount through the
cashier in Chicago. The Couit is
asked to rest rain the striken from in
terfering with trains, pulling out
couplings, or trying to induce the men
now at work to quit the employ of the

oring to clear the tricks snuth of the
wrecked trains which remained there
over night. Nearly all tne tracks from
Forty-third to Filty-flth street were
blocked this morning with partially
overturned cars. All traflio on both
the Lake bhore and Hock Island roads
was delayed in consequonce of the
blockade. By 10 o'clock the tracks
had been pretty thoroughly cleared.
During the night the roundhouse and
other property ol the Like bhore road
were guardoa by I'iukerton'e police
and members ol the town of Lake po
lice force. It was the general expecta
tion that the company would make
another determined effoit to move a
train today, although in tbo opinion
of the oflicera of the town of Lake po
lice, the train, even if taken to the
town limits at Knglewood, would prob
ably stick there, as the strlkeis have a
-committee at that point, and the town
po'ice c Annotation! protsction beyond
the corner of bate and Sixty-third
streets. At this point there are at
least thirty trasks abreast, which are
connected by switches, and constitute
the principal yards of the Like Shore
Company. Even if a train should get
through Kiig ewoo 1, trouble la ex
pected in putsing the Sjuth Otiicago
yards, where the mrws of the people
are said to be in sympathy with the
. strikers.
Five men stood in Superintendent
AViight'eotlloe this morning. Two of
them were terribly battered np. One
bad a bad cut over his eye, his cheek
wis swollen and be bore bruises all
ovor his body. They were demanding
their transportation back home. " We
were taken into a rat hole yeeUrday,"
naid the worst used up of the men,
"and left to be killed. I was with
five or six others and left in the round
bouse yesterday afternoon. There
was a fellow left with ui who was
called a detective. About twenty ol
the strikers camo in and make a tush
at ns. The detective skedaddled the
first one. There wis no chance f jr cs.
The mob was around with monkey
wrenchos, iron bats, coupling pins and
Iron ore. They threw me down and
hammered ana nearly killed me. I
finally got away. I met a polioeman
who stopped mo, turned me around
and inked me if my throat wis cut. I
told him that I bad boon mobbed at
Forty-third street, lie linked me if I
had taken the place of the strikers. I
aaidyes. Ha kicked me, and said, 'I
wish they would kill you.' "
"I am going to my home twenty
' miles the other tide of Toledo."
1 P. M. Shortly alter 12 o'clock
tlio Lake flhors officials took an en
gine out of the roundhouse at Forty
third etrect, supplemented byalurge
number of idle men and boys. In the
caboose were a number o't town of
Lake police and l'iuktrlon's pjlice.
Immediately nfwr the engine slatted
tlif ttrikera made an attack on the
rl.ndliouse and drove awuy the law

ing was witnessed by a large crowd,
which mmli wild demon tuitions of
approval as tuo locomotives pu.Iod
-oat, Oa board the locomotives wers
forty or titty strikers or adherents.
The captuied locomotivts were
run at a high rale of speed and soon
oveitook tte train, the foicmost loco
motive running into the rear of the
caboose, nut not overturning it. The
deputies in the caboose when the loco
motive ran into Uiecaboote find some
obois from their revolvers, but ss near
as can bs learned injured no one. j
Tbo police then deserted from the
train and lltd toward Englewood. The
mob at onto took po Bcsiion of the
train and ditched it. The excitement
ovfr tbo enVr is very grtat. The
police npp'ar t3 have lent complete
control, and the stiikers sre in practi
. cal possession of the railway com
pany's shops and property outside of
tho city.
The Lake 8nore ecgine, in charge
of tue regular crew, left the round
house, shortly after 12 o'clock. Two
cabooses weie attached to it, instead of
one, as first announced. Oa e h ca
boose were about lilteen Town of Luke
police and twenty of 1'inkerton'smen.
Trie train proceeded at a r&'.o no
ias'.er than a alk until it anived in
Knglewood, when the olliceis mounted
the cowcatchers of botri engines and
ttie train started oil at the rats of two
miles in hour. A large crowd of the
striken had rushed ahead of tbo train
while it was proceeJiug at a flow rate,
and at a Utairuus3t out for Eog'o
woxl. As the train's speed was ac
celerated the crowd was soon passed,
and a s'o:m cf (tones aud cinderiweie
thtown ino the incu on the outvie o!
s rage went np foin the thrca's of 14 ;
ruoli at t tie engines dashed by.
Soon a CiAcil Milwaukee and
;t. raul el . and one be-
lwig-.n-j t III lilvkel I'late
road passed tba crowd of strikers. The
engine were on their way to tbe Ko
lewood yards to do some switching
lor the roads to which they belonged,
bntaa they pissed the crowd tbey
were boarded by one hundred furious
men, wno witnont ceremony took un
disputed posHoesion. Tbe engines
wers at first supposed t ' hare been
taken from the Lake dhore round
koase . Then began one of the most ex
citing raets oa record. Faster and
faster flew the Lake Shore train, and
faster and newer came its pursuer.
Thirty, forty, and then fully fifty
miles an hour were covered by the
puisued, and s'-ill the pursuers crept
np. M't Finkerton jumped to bis
feet on the hied platform cf the last
caboose, and a revolver flashed in his
band. "Back! back! "he died, but
was only answered by cries of derision
from tbe dense crowd which com
pletely covered tbe pursuing engine.
As it drew neaarer tbe faces of tbe
strikers could be seen tbrough tbe
dense volumes of smoke left behind by
tbe engines of the Lake bhore train
as they tore along. The pursuing en
gine arrived in a few fest of thu ca
boose at the town of Lake, when po
lice jumped inside end cicsed and
locked the door bobiod them, leaving
Matt I'inkerlon and three of bis men
and newspaper reporters on tbo rer
platform. A buge lump of coal sailed
through the air fo. lowed by tbreo or
four coupling pins, and a Plnkeiton
man fell Headlong from tbe platform.
(Jrevk, crack went Matt Finkeitoa'a
revolver, and a striker fell off the en
gine. Off tbey jumped like sheep,
with the exception of , dozunmunat
tbe first fire, l'oisibly the others gave
signals to the engineer to go ahead.
Another shower of a'.ones which
smanhed tbe windows of tbe caboose
without doing surioua damage ti any
one cn the platform, and more revol
ver shots, bIho apparently wi.hunt
effect, weie fired by tho oflicerr, and
just ttien the pursuing engine caught
up aud coup'td on to the Lake fclioio
train. Tbe stiikers' engines were re
versed and the coupling pins mapped
like to many pieces of glass. The
Lake bhore train was itoppad just as
the engine again approacbed at a full
head of steam, and stuck ths rear ca
boose a blow that threw the thorough
ly frightened policemen to tbe II jor
and shivered every pane of glass in the
cars. Tbe police left tbe dangerous
ground and held a parley with the
striken), the result ol which was that
tbe four engines and two cabooses
wore pulled back to tbe Kiot street
craning. On the cabooses besides tbe
Jiolice were Oenoral Freight Agont
llodgett, Superintendent Amsdcn and
Yatdmaster Jones. It is s'ated 'hat
three strikers were shot, but besides
these there are probably several killed
or woundtd by fal.ing from the rap
idly moving engines. None of the po
lice wers Injured.
The Lake bhore officials this fore
noon, anticipating trouble, served
written notice on the bherlff of Ojok
county of the condition of aflalrs ex
isting along the line of tho rosd, and
notifying him that he and bis suret.ei
would be held responsible for any
damage which raiuht be inflicted by
the strikers. Up to 2 o'clock tbis
afternoon "the railruad ollic.aU had
made no demand oa the Uoveraor for
protect;"", but are expected hourly to
do so. vTue crowd is tt.ll la pautossion
of the y,.rds at Forty-thiid eticet.
Koturnlsg with the ciptured caboo.e
end engine, ihs crowd overturned sjv
eral box cars on the tia.Ls, blocking
the two main tracks.
2 P.M.-Two strikers were shot
who were on the captured locomotive,
one Borioualy. The names have not
yet been atcertained,
Ai the Lake bhord traia wis being
nulled back to Foity (list street by tho
a rikers' engines, tbe ciowd slnng t ie
tncke threw rocks ana other Jimmies
through tbe windows of the cabooas.
Tbe pe-riona inside sought refuge
under tables and lienclieo, anuenrapeu
serious lniury. Tho arrival at Forty-
first street was hailed with cheers by
the great crowd of strikers aud their
sympathizers, who were assembled
there. Tbe eugine went into the
roundhouse, leaving the cabooeo on
the side track.
About 4::iU o'clock p.m. another
train was made up. A number of
Lake colics aud I'inkerton men, as
railroad officials, mounted it and
steamed down to Knglewood, followed
by about 10(H) strikers. At Knglenood
tho train pulled out fast, and it bad
not gone UHvond Grand Crossing when
an engine filled with strikers was seen
in the distance. The ttain pulled ont
faster, but the strikers were gaining
on it, but when they just had caught
up their steam went out and they lell
back lo the depot at South Chica-.
white the train cf four cars proceoded
to its destination. As tbe cars were
pawing South Chicago a lnrgi crowd
of Ktriaors there began throwing stobcs
at the pjiioe who were seated on tlm
car tops. The police lirttd at tU s
crowd, and it is reported that several
men were wounded.
Jm'ga Uresluuu did not return to

Sprlara Bill.
IcoaataroMDiaoa or tas appeal. t
Washwoto, June 23. Tbe speech
of Gen. Wheeler on ex Secretary
hitanton, which excited considerable
diicu:sion in tbe House and wide
comment throughout tbe country, is
thus alluded to in a recent editorial of
the New York Port, a Bepublicsn
caper: We cannot see that Gen.
W heeler has come abort of tbe due
meed of praise tj Mr. Stanton for his
great qualities. Nor doei it appear
that the Htanton debate in the 11 jom
waaof Gen. Wheeler's seeking. It
grew ont of a hasty and ill-considered
remark, which he almost immediately
apologised for and sought to have
omitted from the Concessional1 Record,
being nrevented "by tbe gentleman
from Pennsylvania," who insistsd that
tbe word should appear. Which gen
tleman from Penneylvoiiisput biinaelf
in tbe way of an act of docorum and
stirred np a rebel brigadier does not
appear from Mr. Wbeelet'a epeoch,
but if it was J udgs Kelley, hs is now in
the queer atttode of trying toex
pupgd twenty-four columns of Mr.
W heeler from the lUenrd, in conse
quence of refusing to let Mr. Wheeler
expunge himself to tbe extent of oce
line. Mr. Wheeler in butarenty-four-oolumn
rpee:b says that Mr. htanton
was a msn cf great abilities, trained
intellect, and nnuring energy, one of
ti oss remarkable men who have their
impress upon tbe opinions and tc'inn
of the time in which tbey live. "My
accidental and unpremeditated asser
tion," he continues, "that these taleols
bad been sometimes uaid to disparage
and even to destroy those who did not
conform to his views, is tbe extent of
my offending." If this is the remark
wbich Mr. W cooler apologized for and
offered to expungs Horn tbe official
record of the do bale, we have fo say
tbat a great msny men on the Union
tide and in the Union army, whoee
patriotism was equal to Mr. Stanton's.
agree with him. It is beet to leave
these questions to the judgment of
history in 83 far as we are not called
upon to overhaul them now for the
sake of justice to the living. Mr.
btauton's fame rests npon the secure
foundation of great labors performed
with the high purpose to serve his
country in a fearful crisis. Mo
victim ot Mr. Stanton's prejudices,
if there were such victims, suf
fered more cruelly from oniuet
aspersion and suspicion (ban bluuelL
NooLe bad greater need of courace
and the power of endurance. We
agree entirely with Mr. Wheeier that
Btanton would have preferred, as
Cromwell did, to be painted witu all
his warts and blemishes rather than
to be tui jothed and po ished aud
ironed out of his own individuality.
It would be more conductive to
rational peace and prosperity if the
rebel brifcaoiors would spare, us any
criticism on thoie whom tho Union
cause bus canonized. These occa
sional outbreaks of hot wcrds seivo
only the iuterrs s ot politicians of the
"bloody sbirt" pstsuasien. But id the
prrsvnt cute it urns', be edtmtied that
Mr. Wheeler showed a manly spirit
when be withdrew a remark let full
in ill. hlitra iA i.lint.k an. I ainnkt f
expunge it fiom tbe Jiecord, and we
are Hire that this disposi
tion to avuid wounding the
feeiirjgs of his fellow mombcrs
will tiave a Boothing effect unon
all fair niindod r aders of the debate.
Dot ween Senators Logan and Berrv
the following colloquy ensued in the
Sonata on Monday last, in the d scus
bioa on tLe bill to provide for the con
trol of ilia reservation of public lands
and the distribution of hot water at
Hot Springs, Ark. fcenatar Beiry en
deavored lo have ths bill made a spe
cial order a certain day, to which Sena
tor Logan objected. The latter said:
I do not desire tod) an nngracioue
thing, and Iamalwavs willing to sc
commodate my friend, for he is very
kind ; but I must object tj the bill be
ing made a spocial order, and I will
state tbe tesson why. Of couise, with
out any reduction in any way, I think
the bill is such aone as ought not lobe
onactsd into a law, and f jr that rea
son, by every means I possibly can
that is proper, I shall object to Us be-
comirgalHW. His, in my judgment.
a bill to connscato the property of
private individuals. Tbat is tueeliect
of it, and I shall certainly object to it
in evdrv way l can.
Mr. Kerry I appeal tJ tho Senator
from Illinois that he will allow the
bill to come up aud be discmstsd, and
if it is not a proparbill tbon he will
have an opportunity to amend it.
The slate of nlliiirsat tho Iiot Springs
at this time is bucU that the passage of
no law is worte, in my opinion, than
ilauBt any law which could bo passed.
I am wedaed to no par.icular system,
but the present system is unjust. It
iB a monopoly of tbat witter in tho
hands of a few individuals. Two
tliirJs of the wa'er escapes and is not
being used and utili.d,and hundreds
of cit.spns there, and invalids, want to
use it, II tins Is not a correct bill let ua
pass a correct bill, and 1 appeal to the
Senator from Illinois to give it an op
partunity to bo heard, llo can sug
gest an amendment, if he thinks tbis
is confiscating property, aud tbe
amendment tan be considered, and
the whole matter will be before the
Senate: but I aide bim not to defeat
action by objecting Is tho consideia
tea of the bid.
Mr. Log lit Because I objected
to the bill the Senator regards me per
baus as tbe individual who is in
charge of the opposition to the bill.
tie is mistaken in that. I merely ex
amined the bill for the reason tbat at
one time I was connected with the
es'ablmhraent of a hospital at tbat
filace, and I examined very thorough
y into the laws w hich related thereto.
When this bill came np my attention
was called to it, and on reading it I
regarded it as 1 have said. But the
Sinntor is mistaken if be supposes
tbat I have any interest in gnardiog
the Hot Springs in any way, shape or
form, except the interest 1 have ss a
Senator in any law that may be passed
where property is affected by the pas
page of tbe law. I do not care when
tbe bill is taken up. As I laid, I shall
object to its being taken up next
Wednesday, because it would inter
fare with other matters which are on
the calendar. - It is a bill which can
not paa the Senate without consider
able diicus-ion; I am very sura no
bill of tbat character could, having tbe
provisious in it tbat It has. So 1 will
say to the Senator tbat my objection
will cn'y tend t) pass It over inform
ally, it I may me that term, so that it
wid come up again on the calendar.
It may be taken np tomorrow by a
nmjo ity veto.
Mr. lierry I will detain the Senate
but a moment. 1 bad net intended to
use any langnngo that wou'd accuse
the S.nator from Illinois of bring tne
special champion ot tbo bath-house in
terests there. X did not mean tbat at
all. I simply intended to say that
whether this is a just or an unjust
Din, it u a diii reportea DytneUom
mittee on Pabl'o Lsndv. It did net
meet my views, bnt still I rjr ded It
as better than the present condition of
affairs. As I understand it, the hot
water there is monopolized bv m few
individuals, and two-tbirda of it
allowed ti escape when it is needed
lor the Invalids of the conn'.ry. I sp
peal to the Senator ta give an oppor
tunity V, bava a hearing upon the bill,
and if !s is not a ju;t bill give ns one
that is iu't, but do not defeat th s pro
posed legis'atlnn, which is absolutely
neceseary for the interest of tbe Gov
ernment, tor the interest of tbe in
valids of tbe country, and tbe interest
of the people of the Hot Springs, by
an objection which will lesalt in no
consideration et all.
The matter went over, without ob
jection, ths bill holding its present
place on the calendar.
In a recent speech in the Senate in
support of Senator Frye's bill to pro
mote ! lie po'iical progress and com
mercial property of the American
nations, and to provide for tbe assem
bling in Washington cf a Congress
with this object in view, Ssnitar Wtit
tborne stated in forcible Utms his rea
sons for advocating this important
measure. A' tor submitting a mass of
statistical facta, reckoning the great
amount ot our agricultural and manu
facturing product, and in considering
the immense increase in our popula
tion and tbe demands of our vast in-
du. trial wealth for ommcrcial outlets,
Senator Whitthorne said:
We are brought directly and imme
diate'y to tire conclusion that our do
mestic legiHla ion aud foreign diplo
macy should, nay, must, become re
sponsive to tbo demands and necessi
ties, and tbat cur state stranship,
whether in legislative ball or in the
Cabinet, must keep psce with Ameri
can progre-s. The American btates
maa elnuld not otly lcok to the
growth of the trade and power of his
own cotiuiry, but a'ao to that of our
competi'ors and customers.
In so doing, no timidity should mirk
h s action or saoserrient deference to
the equanimity of tils adversary con
trol his ooudssI. Knowing the lights
aud interests of his own country, he
should dare malotiim tbem.
It is an accepted axiom tbat the ex
tension of commerce by any country
attest si ke its intelligence, wealth
and progress. When, therefore, the
American salesman studies the
growth and develpoment of his coun
try in its industries, trade and com
merce, and reflects that in the lt-gic of
all history it is atUs'ed that in the race
of intelligence and wealth there is "no
pause," he must, it faithful to the trust
of his position, take such steps as will
promote and secure this growth and
development. Indeed, Mr. President,
tbe present status cf our domestio
trado and foreign commerce, ss well as
the products of our farms, our fields,
our mines and manufacture, all de
mand th s thou.ht and attention npon
the part of our stitesmsn, no matter
whether tboir sphere oi labor is in
tbe Senate, Cabinet, or the field of
actual struggle. " European
diploma-y and capital seek in the
building of the lsthmui canal to
"head off" the efortssnd enterpriss
of Ameiican citizj.it, aad to place a
limit to Amoiican power and Ameri
can progr,si. Is it not stngolur, Mr.
r.esident, that (0 stupendous an un
der aking, and one to l.kely to aQxct
eeiiously the commerce, if not the
peace of the United States, es tbe
building of an intoroceanic cannl by
European capital tmi Kiropean enter
prise under a Europe charter and
this project inaugurated and promoted
by those who, lor years, t gt trier with
oi her d tenuis of the family (Na
poleon's), dreamed of a Latin empire
on tbis continent flhoukl apparently
have arrested so little attention npon
the part of tho e charged with the
conduct of our foreign relations?
Who tbat studies a mooieiit does not
see that, in a military and naval point
of view, it will bacome necessary upon
the completion of such a canal that
the United States shou.d increase its
naval armament and multiply its
works of military fortification? Snould
not this fact, or probability of it, in
duce the United Stitts, if not other
American States, to regard the con
struction of such a canal as a menace
to their power and s curity? Mr.
President, all the indications point to
a straggle over the empire of wealth
tbat lies in the present and faiure
commerce of these States in South
Amsrici, the islands of tbe Pacific,
and the countries bounded by
its waters, in all of which "the
balance sheet of frade" Bhows
us , occupying an infe.ior posi-'
tionj American progress will
not tolerate an abandonment of tho
struggle. Can it be won by domestic
protective tariffs? Can it be gninod
and iheld by subsidized ships? Can
it be reached and secured by intsr
Oceania canals? The proposition con
tained in these queries have each their
adveca'es. Without arguing either
npon the prossnt occasion 1 content
myself with saying tl at neither, in
my opinion, would provo elllcac'.cui
and satisfactory. Either one would
provo illusory and futile, unless diplo
macy hud lit Bt entered the Hold and
secured respect acd ptoiection for
American capital and enterprise in
vested in the struggle bjing made.
The Kxrcaiive department should in
its olllcp obtain the friendship, good
will, and kindly disposition of tbe
countries with .whom commercial in
tercourse and trade development is
songht And beyond ail this
let tbe American citizen know and
recoguiie that wherever tbe hon
est pursuit of his business may call
him he carries with him tbe as
surance that all the power of bis Gov
ernment will see that "wherever it is
dasirod to open markets for our sur
plus wealth, we shall find volunteer
pioneers for our trade and willing
missionaries of our commerce." It is
because we have not been willing to
incur hazards for the protection ot our
citizens who may have the conrage to
embark capital and labor in commer
cial enterprises in foreign countries,
and prompt to give them relief when
oppressed, that the "balance of trade"
is often found against us. Let the
Kxecutive part of the Government do
its duty in this regard and the people
and their Congreee will not be s ow to
pupport such an administration.
The shadow of Wall sheet, with the
timidity and selfishness of its capital,
cannot longer dictate tbe law and
limit oi American pragma,
