The Blacklist Was a Potent Weapon of the Railway Companies How Residents of Pullman Were Oppressed and, Wronged. Chicago, Aug. 16. The first national board of labor commissioners appointed under the O'NeilLlaw of 1888, convened at 10 o'clock yesterday morning', in the district court room of the federal build ing. Labor Commissioner Carroll D. Wright called the meeting to order and announced the course which would be pursued by the commissioners, declar ing that the employes of the roads and tfelr friends would be first examined and then then the men in charge of the roads. Mr. Wright then annouced that the commission was in session. George W. How ard, vice president of the American Railway union, was the first witness, lie appeared as a voluntary witness. Mr. Wright asked who was president of the A. R. U. When he was told that Eugene V. Debs was the Dresl- johh b. xbbnam. aeni ue bskbu u Debs was in court Mr. Howard re plied in the negative. "We should like very much to take his testimony," said Mr. Wright "Will he come here to-morrow?" Mr. Howard said he was 6ure he would. Howard then told in detail his career as a railroad man. In beginning he said that as he understood it, accord ing to the president's proclamation, this investigation would relate only to two ronds The Rock Island and the Illi nois Central. Mr. Wright said the proclamation so provided, but he thought the commis sion would be able to get at the bot tom of the strike trouble before it fin ished its work. Mr. Howard said that the cause of the general strike was that the Gen eral Managers' association made a declaration that they would back up George M. Pnllinan. According to Mr. Howard various parsons in prominent places called on Mr. rullman, and to all of them he re turned the same reply that he had nothing to arbitrate. All the minutes of the A. R. U. and all the documen tary evidence was proffered to the com mission by Mr. Howard and accepted. Mr. Howard went minutely into the extent and causes of the Btrike. He re lated how the general managers re fused, on Mayor Hopkins' request to arbitrate the strike. He said the first he had heard of rioting was when a re porter for a morning newspaper drew a pistol at Blue Island. Mr. Howard then testified that he had given information to oity detectives that certain persons had been paid large sums by General Manager gan, of the Rock Island road, to burn cars, thereby .arousing public sentiment against the strikers. Master Workman Sovereign testified next Mr. Sovereign thought the best way to settle strikes would be through the courts. lie believed that if a man was discharged the courts should fix the damage for such discharge, pro vided such discharge was unjust He warmly advocated the government ownership of railroads. At the conclu sion of Mr. Sovereign's testimony the convention adjourned until 10 o'clock to-day. Chicago, Aug. 17. The inner history of the Pullman company as seen from the Pullman strikers' standpoint, was told to the national labor commission yesterday by Thomas Heatheote, chair man of the Pullman strike committee. Tho story proved the most interest ing piece of testi mony yet submitted and was heard by a large number of persons, more than any so far seen at the sessions. The day was almost en tirely devoted to the Pullman end of the big strike. V. S. WOBTBIMOTOK. The commission devoted much time to questions bearing on the value of arbitration. The government owner ship of railroads does not seem to meet with aa much favor from them as the arbitration plan. At the opening of the afternoon session, Mr. , Heatheote took the stand. H hag been instru mental more than any other man in keeping the Pullman strikers from re turning to work. He testified that his wages varied , from $48 to W for two weeks' work; he ' warn amrAnrtmA ti 4Via mIaaa TTa 3 n clared that the Pullman employes did not strike until they were forced to do so by the conditions imposed by the company. Many were unable to keep their families provided with food on the wages they received. Just before the strike some of the men got nine cents an hour and worked only a few hours a. day, Out of this they were obliged to pay rent, taxes, water rates, gas and buy food. The prices on piece work were so low that even the best men were unable to make more than 92 a day. The witness said be paid 118.71 a month for a five room cottage which could be got at Kensington or Hyde Park for $7 to 9. This included the ' charge for water in Pullman. Mr. Heatheote could not af ford to pay for gas, for which he under stood the company charged 2.60 a thousand. The witness then created a mild sens ation by producing a piece of paper which he said was one of the Pullman "blacklists." His own name headed the. list He claimed that this was the original list copies of which had been sent to all the railroads. ' Several men, Mr. Heatheote said, had been dropped for belonging to labor unions. New men returning te work at Pullman now were obliged to sur render their A. R. U. cards and sign an agreement not to join any labor organ ization for five years. If they refused to abide by these conditions they were not given a position. He said Su perintendent Mlddleton was not a oar builder, but a mechanic, and that If a more experienced man had been In charge the men would have made more money and business would have been better with the company. When asked if the men in the different departments of the car building works were willing to testify before the commission and why more of them were not present, Mr. Heatheote answered: "Some of them have not got money enough to come down town. Some of them have not got ten cents to their names." Chairman Heathcote's views as to preventing strikes were first, : the gov ernment ownership of railroads, and second, arbitration when it could be justly applied. . , . Miss Jennie Curtis, president of the women's union at Pullman, was the next witness. She testified that the women by working just as hard as they could were able to make only ninety cents a day at the most and some of them only forty cents. Chicaoo, Aug. 18. There was a dearth of witnesses at the third session of .the national labor commission yes terday morning. , 1 . . Leroy M. Goodwin, a director of the A. R. U., was the first- to testify. Mr. Goodwin thought in a "co-operative commonwealth" lay the solution of all the troubles of labor. He meant by this, he said, a government by the people only. He claimed that ,he gov ernment as now conducted was One for the corporations only. He was succeeded by Prof. L. W. Be mis, professor of social eoouomy in the University of Chicago. As a deep stu dent of the labor question Prof. Bemis was listened to with the closest atten tion. He did not believe in compulsory arbitration. He cited the Massachusetts law, which provides for a state court of three men which shall arbitrate labor differences, One of these shall be from the ranks of organized labor, one from the employers and a third to be chosen by these two, or in the event nobody can be agreed upon, the governor shall appoint the third. Prof. Bemis stated that this board had been very success ful in settling labor difficulties. The only times when tho board had failed were cases where one side or the other had refused to arbitrate. In this event the board had a right to make an in quiry, publish the result broadcast and lay the blame where it belongs. The board does not have the right, as Prof. Bemis thought it should have, of . in quiring into the employers' profits. "I think such a board should have the right to examine witnesses," said Prof. Bemis, "and to make a separate report on each case, publishing fully who is in the wrong. ' ' 'I think the time is coming when the experiment of government ownership will be tried. But in view of the fact that this time is not likely to be in the near future, I suppose the commission wants to know a plan which ; will be. more quickly available. I favor Mr. Day's suggestion made Thursday,1 that competent men be licensed. - If they violated an agreement, 'thair license could be forfeited. Employers could: be reached by being forced by the laws to forfeit their charters if they broke the agreement" Chicago, Aug. 20. Thomas W. Heath-, cote, chairman of the Pullman strike committee, resumed the stand at the opening of Saturday's sitting of the national labor commission. He told of the peremptory discharge of (several members of the strike committee. Only three lost their places. To forty-six members nothing was done. It cost the Pullman employes, Mr. Heatheote said, $4,000 to join the American Rail way union. Each of the 4,000 employes paid $1 -each for a membership card. Miss May Wood, an ex-employe of Pullman, next took the stand. She tes tified as to the cut in wages among the girls. Miss Wood received $1 a day and paid $17.71 a month for rent Although she had paid up her rent, she declared she received a notice of eviction and was refused any satisfaction on the point by the Pullman company. F. P. McDonald, a locomotive engi neer, formerly in the employ of the Chicago & Great Western railway, told how he had been discharged beoause of his connection with the strike. He said it was the policy of the Chicago & Great Western, as well as other roads, to dismiss from its service all men who served on committees asking an adjust ment of grievances. He instanced the case of thirteen men who were blacklisted but afterward re instated. Aa chairman of the board of mediation for several roads, Mr. Mo Donald told muoh of the inner history of the methods of employment and dis charge of men by railroads. ' He was opposed to strikes as a rule; but be lieved that If there never had been a' strike by railroad men they would not be getting more than half as much wages as they are " now receiving. Strikes, he said, were not generally won, bnt they entailed a heavy loss on the railroads and this insured certain wncesslons from the reads ' In order that a repetition of these losses mlgkt be avoided. He said many railroad em ployes were afraid to testify before the commission because they feared being blacklisted : by the General Managers' associations He himself, he asserted, had been unable to find work on any railroad on account of being black listed. - ..''' " !". Miss Meta J. West, who was em ployed in the upholstery department at Pullman, corroborated the testimony of Mr. Wilson and ethers regarding the eut in wages, H. W. Pearson, a real estate dealer, testified that the houses in Pullman were , Inferior in' accommodations to those In the surrounding towns. He aid the accommodations, in Pullman were very bad. When he was a tenant he noticed that his house was often full of sewer gas from a valve iu the basement The water also he claimed was bad. As good houses as rented In Pullman for $17 could be got in adjoin ing towns for $10 a month. BUSINESS BAROMETER. R. G. Dan ift Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade Bays that Great Improvement la Bast ' ness Must Result from the Settlement of the Tariff Question. . ; - Nkw York, Aug. 18. R. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: The new tariff bill, if signed by the president as expected, provides a defi nite basis for business. No supple mental legislation is thought possible until next year at least Large improvement has been ex pected from any settlement, the more because of a vast amount of business deferred from week to week in the hope of more definite conditions. The rush of such business, or even a part of it, might easily double transactions for a time. It is not to be overlooked that the effect , of new duties upon many branches of industry and trade is prob lematical and can be determined only after some months of experience, and meanwhile the serious injury to corn and some other conditions exercisea restraining influence. While it is not wise to look for a great "boom," there is warrant for a reasonable and prudent hopefulness. It is too early to look for effects of the new situation in the great industries, but the gradual recovery which has ap peared for some time is seen in a bet ter demand fo products. Speculation in wool has been stopped and the sales, which have been 6,929, 750 pounds for the week and 14,553,150 for two weeks of "August, against 8, 997,400 last year and 10,385,300 in 1893, naturally diminished on Wednesday and Thursday, as it is expected that the recent advance may be lost, though no change yet appears. As woolen man ufacture has the old duties with free wool until January 1, orders are ex pected to be governed by the consum ing power of the people, with the ac cumulated business so long deferred. Cotton manufacturers have been car rying extraordinary stocks of goods for the country and the strike threatened at New Bedford will not alarm them, but the reduction of wages seems likely to be accepted at Fall River. A smart increase in transactions is reported, buyers and sellers having at last a com mon basis for judgment Resumption by iron and steel works which were stopped by the strikers continues to de press prices of some finished products, but with more furnaces operating, prices of pig iron are not lower. The boot and shoe industry leads all others ia recovery from depression and shipments from Boston are 47 per cent larger than last year, orders for low priced goods pressing shops that pro duce certain qualities, although most manufacturers are working on orders covering only a week or two. PLUCKY WELLMAN. After Enduring Many Hardships, the Ex plorer's Party Arrives at Tromsoc Will Try Again to Reach the Fole. Tbomsoe, Norway, Aug. 18. Walter Wellman and his companions with the crew of the wrecked steamer Ragnvald Jarl have arrived here from Spits bergen, aboard the fishing yacht Ber tine. Wellman says the expedition had almost reached the 81st parallel of latitude when forced to turn back on May 13. ,The weather had suddenly become intensely severe and northward from the Seven Isles broken Ice made progress Impossible. The expedition then traversed the coast of Northeast land, most of which was explored. Prof. O. B. French surveyed much of the coast, adding to the map Capes Gresham, Whitney, Armour and Scott and Walsh Island. Wellman and seven others started on July 1 with an alum inum boat to force a way northward over the ice pack. After a severe struggle they were forced to return. They started on July 4 to return to Walden island. In crossing Dove bay they often had to wade through water up to their waists. Many other hard ships were suffered. The aluminum boat rendered excellent service, resist ing pressure which certainly would have destroyed ordinary boats. One of the party, Almy, broke his leg and had to be carried to Walden island, where they arrived on July 22. After waiting two weeks it was de cided, on August 4, to push southward. It was risky work, but all succeeded in reaching low islands safely. On Au gust 6, the Bertine was sighted. They sailed on August 7, calling at Danes Island, for Oyen and Heyerdahl and provisions. Wellman declares that he will make another attempt in 1890 to reach the pole by the Spitzbergen route. TIN PLATE INDUSTRY. A Decided Impetus Is Given to Its De velopment by Settlement of the Tariff. Pittsbtjbg, Aug. 18. The settlement of the tariff has given an immediate Impetus to the development of the black plate and tin plate industry. Plans that have been held in abeyance for months are now being put into e ect and considerable eagerness is dis played to invest money in this direc tion. Bi Goldsmith, a tin plate im porter of New York and Portland, Ore., Is in Pittsburg, and proposes to invest 1300,000 to the-business in this vicinity.

I Norton Bros., tin plate manufactur ers of Chicago,' are said to be negoti ating for the purchase of Oliver's Fif teenth street mills,' the intention being to convert the plant into black plate j and tin plate works.
