Judge Craite's political enemies are
■esorting to shady tricks to defeat him
n his candidacy for the office of muni
ipal judge. They are circulating a
tory that when he released Novak who
tilled Rathsiicl it the Half-way House,
t was a •■job" and that he should have
teld him fur manslaughter. The judge
vas seen by a Pilot representative re
tarding his connection with the case.
!nd he said emphatically that when the
videuce was submitted to him. there
ras only one thing to do and that was
jo discharge Novak.
IJulge Craite says that Novak had
one to the Half-way House and had
sere encountered Kathsack and a half
dozen of his companions. Rathsack
Ind his chums abused Novak and the
itter made several attempts to dee j
rom his persecutors but was unable to
lude them. He was chased through
le house, into a room, and not until
lis tormentors had driven him to to the
ergeof madness by their cruelty did he
raw the knife and slash it about indis
criminately. Rathsack came within
le zone of the knife's activity and paid
Ue penalty with his life. When the
ase was brought before Judge Craite

Ictated by law and fact, and despite of
riticism he did his duty.
It was subsequently that Former Dis

FOR THE SEASON.
It W ill Not Open as Well as Last
VESSEL REPAIRS SOMEWHAT TARDY•
Trouble is in Sight With the Dock
AS TO PROBVBI.E FREIGHT RATES.
Strike in the Anthracite Coal Regions Will
Have a Depressing Influence on
l ake Tonnage.
The shipping season is now close at
hand, hence the following excerpt as to
the seas ni's prospects will make vain
"At this time a year ago men were at
work in all parts of the great lakes get
ting ships in readiness to move upon an
nouncement that the Straits of Macki
naw were free of ice. as all arrange
limits have been made for a very active
season at freights highly profitable for
the vessels. Tims far nothing has been
done towards preparing vessels for the
coming season, as conditions arc the
opposite of what they were a year ago.
and even if the question of freights was
settled, it seems almost impossible to
avoid labor troubles in some lines.
Everything still points to delay, and a
light movement of freight in the early
part of the season. Sonic progress has
been made, however, during the past
few day-- With the the I'nited
States Steel corporation settled, a move
has been made towards fixing prices of
ore for the interests that are not pro
ducers of their own raw material, and
it is expected that the Bessemer < ire
association will make an announcement
on this score within the coming week,
it is fortunate for the or interests that
the steel combination caused delay, as j
the advance in pig iron, and other con
ditions that have arisen of late, have
all tended to strengthen the ore situa
"Representatives of longshoremen em-!
ployed on the ore and coal docks of Lake
Erie have been in conference with the
dock managers, and it is expected that
they will conclude an agreement with
the close ~f the present week. The
workmens’ representatives started in
with a demand for m ten instead of a
twelve hour day. and with a schedule of |
wages even higher than last year, j
Tin y asked, for instance, for 154 cents
a- i shoveling charge for unloading iron ■
ore, as against 14 cents hist season. 11l
is understood that the demand for a
shorter clay has been abandoned, and it
is the general opinion that in the final
compromise tne shoveling charge for
ore will be b! cents, as compared with
the 11 cent charge of last season, with
the coal shoveling schedule and day
labor charges cut down in proportion
to tit** 'light reduction for ore shoveling.
"Tlie railroads hauling coal from the
West Virginia and Pittsburg districts to
Lake Eric ports have made a small redne
tion in rates and it is expected that prices
of c >al which will soon be announced,
will be somewhat lower than they were
a year ago. but the reduction in steam
boat fuel will not be sufficient to cut
much of a figure in operating expenses
of the vessels. If is quite evident,
therefore, that the ships are to be con
fronted with costs very little below
those of last year and the additional
disadvantage of about (i,(Kill,(Mill 'oii>
more capacity than last year.
"Furthermore, it is quite probable
that a strike in the Anthracite coal
region will cut out this branch of the
lake trade for a long pern si, and there
are no signs of a grain movement from
the head o' Lake Superior, while the
shipments from Chicago are not ex pee
ted to equal an average season. For all
these reasons the owners of ships, aside
from those that have business on account
of ore or railroad connections, are idle
and have made no move tow ards meet
ing the engineers' strike or any other
condition that they may encounter
when the time has finally arrived for
starting their vessels.
