Closing Arguments in the
Hatch Trial.
Damaging Testimony Against A.
R. U. Strikers.
Wild Htampeda of Boreas on an Oak
land Ferryboat—Several People
Serloatly Injared — Camp
bell's Stale Train.
By tbe AUuclkted l'ren.
Woodland, Dbo. 6.—At no time dur
ing tbe trial ol Hatch bas tha atten
dance been so large as last night and
today. Many people were unable to
tain admission to the court room. Mr.
Head's opening address for the prosecu
tion ooonpied an hour and a halt in
delivery. He began by reminding tha
jrry tbat tbey bad a sworn duty to per
oral and thoy sbonld discharge tbeir
obligation to tbe people uninfluenced
by eentiment or prejudice, but with an
earnest desire to be governed wholly
by tbe law and the facts in tbe case.
He made a very close analysis of tbe
testimony for the prosecution, present
ing it in a logical and forcible manner.
He a'ao pointed ont many inconsistencies
and apparent contradictious in the
testimony for tbe defense.
Mr. Gaddia, in bis opening argument
ior tbe defense, made an .earnest plea
for the purpose of impressing tbe jury
with a full sense ol the responsibility
reit'ng npon tbem. He made an ex
haustive review oi the testimony. The
evidence ol every witnesa for tbe prose
cution was dissected and tbe apparent
weak points held np before the jury.
Then the teatimony tending to establish
an alibi was carefblly marshaled and
every corroborating oircamatanoe dwelt
upon at aome length.
At 1:30 General Hart began tbe clos
ing argument for the delenee. He waa
in splendid voice and spoke with im
passioned earnestneaa that frequently
rose to the height of eloqnenoe. His
denunciation of the railroad company
was very bitter. He waa especially
severe on tbe detectives aod railroad
ettumors, branding them aa alavee
and tools of a eoulleaa corporation tbat
ia using its mighty power and influence
to bound Melviu Hatch to tbe gallows.
He charged tbat the proaecution waa
nut by the people but by the Southern
Pacific company, with not only hired
lawyers but suborned perjury to swear
away the life of an innocent man. He
charged that the object is to make a
Vie im of Hatch in order to terrorize the
railto,id ercployeea and lessen the
dangor of auotber strike.
At 4 o'clock General Hart had not
Concluded his argument anil tlte court
ordered a receaa until 7 o'clock, when he
Mr. Cook of the prosecution will not
begin his argument until tomorrow.
The case will not probably be given to
tbe jury until late in the afternoon.
Arrested for Manslaughter.

tripman of tbe cable oar whioh collided
Witb a train last nigbt were arrested to

San Francisco, Deo. s.—During to
day'a proceedings in the trial of Mayne
and Oaaaidy, tha A. R. U. atrikera from

etriters wbo rode from Redding to
Sacramento on the apecial train whioh

waa detained by a guard nntil ba gave
the A. R. U. password. Then he-crossed
the bridge to the atrikera' oamp, where
he found a acore of A. R. TJ. men. They
were armed. He asked tbem what they
were going to do.
"We are going to atop the first train
tbat cornea along," waa tbe answer.
Heed aaked bow tbey were going to do
it. One man replied tbat they were go
ing to pop the engineer, whereupon
Reed replied that he wao not in it, and
was curaed for hie refusal to atay. Reed
then atarted baok toward Sacramento,
and after going a little way threw bia
gun over a fence into a paatnre.
Reed, who Is again in the employ of
tbe Sontbern Paoifio, gave similar teati
mony againat Worden in tbe trial at

lows :
"I went out to tbe new olty ball," he
aaid, "and had a talk with several mem
bers of the board of supervisors in re
gard to granting permission for the
erection or trolley polea and wiree on
Kearney etreet. A majority expressed
themselves in favor of a such resolution
or ordinance and one or two were so hot
for it that they aaid tbey thought they
could convert others to their views. Well,
I auppoaed it was all right and expected
tha reaolution to go through without
any material opposition. Yon can
judge of my surprise and indignation
wben I wae informed that tbe resolu
tion whicb I had prepared and that had
been actually placed on the file had
been withdrawn. The moment I heard
of that I put on my bat went atraigbt to
the corner of Fonrrh and Townsend
streets and offered my resignation. I
told them I never wanted to go near the
supervisors again."

Ono Pacific Ooait Dnlon Diiropttd.
ltate Outtlns Will Follow.
San Francisco, Dec. 6.—The Pacifio
Insurance union, through, which the
inanrance business of tbe Pacific coaat
bas long been controlled, is again in
danger of disruption. Arthur E. Ma
gill, general agent of the Phoenix and
the Home companies, wiUdrtw from
the asaociation beoauee of what be called
ita lax and lenient methods in treating
members who have openly violated
the rules of tbe union and defied ita
power to regulate their busineaa in any
way. Two secret meetings, botb of
whioh were largely attended, were held
today. It is understood committees
were appointed to wait upon Mngill and
endeavor to bring the two influential
companies which he represents back
into the fold. Magill is eaid to be de
termined to remain out unless some
action ahall be taken to discipline the
violators of the nnion'a bylaws.
Magill'o resignation means a very bit
ter light, consequent upon his deter
mination to cut ratea. The "non-inter
couree" rule waa put Into effect against
him at once. This rule ia in the nature
of a boycott, and prevents all other in
surance oompanios on the Pacific OOSII
from accepting bUßineas through Ma
gill's companies or sharing business in
the lino of reinanrance witb either of
his compauiee. Thia doea not cut the
Home and the Phccoix off entirely, aa
they can etill do buaineae direct with
the inaured, but in the case of long
linea, which are always broken up by
reinsurance, the company will bave
hard luck placing tbeir riske. Being
untrammelod, Mr. Magill may now cut
rates, and there may be a lively scram
ble for business.
In the matter of rate cutting, union
members can take a hand, as one of the
rules adopted only a few months ago
permits a union member to cut tatea in
order to secure a riat written by a non
union number. In such caae the risk
secured is divided up among the nnion
members, thereby decreasing the indi
vidual risk.
