EUGENE DEB'S TEIAL!
IN THE UNITED STATES COURT i "TODAYI Bafaa Hearing ArcamanU In th Case of 'Dabs, rmldent of the American Kall '' way Union Dick ChaM Will Stay ' Awhile. Washington, March 25. The United States supreme court today began hearing arguments In the caBe of Debs, president of the Ameilcan Railway union, and others who participated .with him in the Chicago strike. The case comes, up on appeal from the Chi cago district court. Mr. Trumbull, for the defense, took Issue with the contention that the con stitutional provision for the regulation of commerce between the states gave authority for such proceedings as this 4n equity, but declared that this was entirely contrary to the holding of the courts. In support of which position he quoted various authorities. But even if this was correct, the present case was on confined entirely to the state of Illinois. Continuing, Mr. Trumbull declared that the supreme court of the United States had been overwhelmed with cases growing out of a strained con struction of the constitution and he thought it time to call a halt. He con tended tliat the anti-trust bill had no bearing upon the case of an association of railroad employes, but was intended to prevent combinations, corporations and trusts, as was made evident by the fact that provision was made for the seizure of property. He asserted that the injunction In the case had been Is sued without notice except In the news- roraa "It Vi t o Tirca trlla tt waa In H rt Dance of congress, and it was not to be supposed mat everyooay wan compell ed to read the newspapers. He urged In Artnnli.alftn that Tlnha n nil hla aaan. elates were Illegally Imprisoned and asKea ior uieir release. FOR THE GOVERNMENT.

He referred brief ly to the condition of affairs In Chicago when the appeal was made to the cir cuit court, which was. he said, for the protection of the malls and lnlerstate commerce and for the Issuance of the writs to enjoin sucn lnienerance. ne defended the right of the government to invoke protection of these interests in a court of equity, asserting that such a course Is authorized both by the statutes and the decision of the courts. He based his argument largely upon the provisions of the interstate com merce act and upon the right of the government to protect malls. Mr. Walker concluded with the ad journment of the court, at 4 o'clock, leaving only two arguments still to be made that of Attorney General OI ney for the government and of Mr. Darrow for the petitioners.

RANDOM FIGURES ILLUSTRATE THE PRESENT SITUATION. The Increase of Landlordism Presents Dark Future for This Conntry That Baa for a Century Boaited Its Liberty and Free Homes. Final and complete statistics of farms, homes and mortgages have been Issued from the census office and the figures offer an Inviting fleld for study. The report contains many striking Il lustrations and the growth of landlord Ism is one of the most vividly evident facts brought out It Is not in one por tion of the country only, but east and west, north and south alike bear tne same testimony, of a tendency toward European conditions. A few figures taken at random illustrate the situa tion: ' In Rhode Island not quite 20 per cent of the farms were occupied by tenants In 1880, while in 1890 over 25 per cent were so occupied. In Vermont during the same period the increase is from 13 per cent to 17 per cent, while in Massa chusetts in 1880 8.18 per cent of farms were occupied by tenants, in 1890 over 15 per cent In the south, land mort gages are not so common as in the west and the hulk of debt is represented by crop liens, as cotton is more readily turned into money. The per cent of ten ant farmers in Georgia increased from 188& to 1890 from 44 per cent to 58 per cent In Tennessee during the same period the increase is from 34 per cent to 41 per cent. As a fair index of the west: In Minnesota in 1880, 9 per cent of the farms were hired and in 1890, 15 per cent, while over 39 per cent of the farms are mortgaged, making 54 per cent that are virtually tenants, as the occupant of a mortgaged home pays Interest to the mortgagee amounting to a rent, not unfrequently greater than the tenant neighbor who makes no pretense of ownership. - The mortgage statistics present a sit uation that cannot but be viewed with alarm. In the state of Kansas the number of mortgages in force in 1890 was 298,880 aggregating the amount of $243,000,000, and proving a per capita debt of $170 or an average of $350 for 9ach family. We have reason to believe that conditions since 1880 have im proved in Kansas while becoming worse In other localities. In Iowa the mort gage indebtedness amounted to $199, 774,171, being a per capita debt of $104. In Illinois the per capita mortgage debt Is $100 or $500 for each family. These figures illustrate the situation in the center of the great agricultural regions of the west. The aggregate for the United States June 1, 1890, shows that there were 12, 690,552 families; of these 2,250,000 occu pied mortgaged homes and farms.whlle S.250.000 were tenants occupying hired homes, leaving the number of 2,190,152 occupying their own homos free from encumbrance. The average amount of indebtedness on each motgage Is $1, 257 and the average interest on each ono is $73.50 annually. Figuring to gethor those who are in mortgaged homes paying Interest, and tenants pay ing rent, we have a total of 84 per cent of the families who are virtually ten ants, while only 16 per cent of our peo ple are free home owners. The mort gaged indebtedness amounted in the aggregate to almost three biuion oi dollars, or a little over $14.00 each for every man, woman and child in the United States. It Is useless to go far ther wlta the figures, what we have given is a fair Illustration of the whole report Is it not humiliating that such con dltlons exist? A mortgaged Indebted ness of double the actual amount of money In the country, even though we accept as true the treasury report of circulation which make no allowance for losses or any other cause by which the amount in actual circulation falls far below the reports. The increase In landlordism presents a dark future for a country that for a century has boasted its liberty, its free homes and free in stltutions. It portrays plainly the trend of events which will result In a land of slaves, the most pitiable the world has ever known, for In our history will lin ger the glittering promises of freedom and In the crushed and broken body of a once hopeful, buoyant nationality will remain a slumbering spark of the spirit of liberty, subdued, conquered and repressed. A nation of crushed and bleeding hearts, of lost and burled hopes, of cruel disappointment; dismal despair. NEW YORK ACITATED. Department Store Agxreuloni Alarming the General Trade Association. New York paper: The Retail Butch re' association Is the first to take de cisive action against the encroachments on general trade of the department stores. The association has ordered a general boycott on the big dry goods 1S70. Alt stores by families of the members of the association. Wives and daughters have been told to purchase nothing from these stores, no matter what bar gains are offered. The wholesale deal ers in meat have also been notified that if they continue to furnish sup plies to these dry goods establish ments the trade of the members of the Butchers' association will be dis continued. A member of the associa tion said to-night nearly all of the wholesale dealers have granted the butchers' demand, and that some of the dry goods dealers are now com pelled to get their meat supply from out of the city. A wholesale dealer in a certain brand of hams, he said, had been detected furnishing one of the "pirate" dry goods houses and that a boycott of that brand was ordered. The ham has had a Bale In nearly every state in the Union, but when the dealer intimated that he could live without the trade of the New York butchers, the butchers' associations in other cities were notified. The result, he says, is a boycott of that particular brand wherever it has heretofore been sold. The grocers last week followed the ex ample of the butchers. The Retail Grocers' union is one of the strongest trade organizations in the city, having an active membership of over 1,200. There are as many more retail dealers in the city who do not belong to the union, but they are almost as a unit in favor of the action taken. The grocers have notified members of their families to boycott all dry goods stores which sell groceries and have also expressed a desire to the wholesale grocers that they refuse to furnish dry goods houses with supplies. Wholesale dealers in canned goods have been notified that if they wish to retain the trade of the members of the union they will signify it by discontinuing their relations with the dry goods firms. The butchers and grocers confidently expect the aid of the liquor dealers of the city in the boycott they have started. They con tend that the dry goods houses are sell lng liquors the same as groceries and meats. The Age, Chicago. A BLACKM A1LINQ SCHEME. What a Great Democratic) Taper Baxi of the Bond Swindle. We presume that the cuckoos who, against their own convictions, may feel themselves compelled to defend Mr. Cleveland's gold bond scheme, will claim that if the scheme had been in dorsed by congress, it would have re sulted In a saving to the people of $16,000,000 during the next thirty years. The answer to this is that the whoia scheme, in its Intention and concep tion, was in the nature of a blackmail' lng operation in. the interest of the ele. ment that Is growing rich out of the Increased purchasing power that the single gold standard is conferring on the money they are hoarding, ine representatives of the people refused to permit their constituents to be black mailed, and that Is the end of the mat ter so far as this congress is concerned. The alternative proposed to congress by Mr. Cleveland may be very simply stated. In effect he said: "You gentle men seem to be opposed to the single gold standard. Very well. If you don t accept it for at least thirty years, 1 propose to levy an additional tax ol $16,000,000 on the people that tney would not have to pay If you would ac cept gold monometallism for thirty years." That was the ultimatum, ana it con- sress had accepted it, that body would have gone down to history as the most Infamous assembly of representatives that ever protended to represent the people. To save $16,000,000 In the course oi thirty years, the people's representa tives were asked to Indorse a scheme that would have tied tho country to gold monometallism. The country has already lost untold billions by the op erations of th'3 system, and while $16,- 000,000 might have been saved by ac cepting the blackmailing condition proposed to congress, the people would have lost billions In the lurtner snnnK age of values and prices and in thf general depression of business occa sioned by making gold the only unit ol account and measure of value. The Constitution regrets that there wa even one Georgia congressman ready to indorse this scandalous propo sition, and. at the same time, thanki heaven that there was only ono. With the sole exception of Mr. Turner th representatives of the people of Georgia In congress stood by the Interests oi their constituents and by the prln clples of their party. This fact showi that all the efforts that have been madf to induce Georgia's representatives tc indorse the financial views of John qherman and the republicans, havt been futile. The leaders of the two old partlei seem to agree upon one thing that Is, that the last bond deal buncoed the peo ple out of about seven or eight million dollars. American Steam Laundry.
