VOLUME X..VI.* GRIEAT FALLS, MONTANA, FRIDAY , AUGUST 24, 1894. DEBS HAS A SAY And tives H tSteLory of the 8trike to the loeeral Ivtestigatlng Committee. DID INT BINEI THE STRIKE It Was lirenght Abeut by time Pitiable Co.ditite of the Imployec at Pullman. CIncAGO, Aug. 21.-The A. R. U. president, 3. V. Debe, was a witness be. fore the strike committee today. The court room was crowded from bench to doorways. "Now, tell us in your own way, Mr. Debs," said Oommiestoner Wright,"what you know of the Pullman strike and its results." Leaning forward in his seat the tall leader of the great strike began in a low, clear voice a recital which gradually be came more earnest and forcible as he proceeded until it developed into almost an oration. He told of having received word that a strike in Pullman was immi nent and of his coming to Chicago to in. vestigate. "I found that salaries had been out time and again until skilled mechanles were working their lives away for wages not suffcient for a day laborer; that the men were working for wages upon which they could not live; that the town of Pullman was so schemed that every penny a workingman made found its way back to the company. In fact, I found the workingmen of Pullman in a PITIABLE CONDITION, and I determined that I would do all in rmy power as president of the A. I. U. to improve the condition of these men. The strike followed, ordered by the men themselves. Then came the boycott, or dored by duly elected delegates to our convention, and then followed the rail road strikes, ordered by the various local unions, each of which had a grievance of its own." "What about the 'buy a gun' tele gram?" asked the commissioner. "That is easily explained. The tele gram was sent by my private secretary to a friend in Butte and was merely s playful expression, it was sent as such and was so understood." "Would the railroad strike have oc curred it there had been no I'ullmaa trouble?" asked the commissioner. "No; the Pullman strike was thi prune cause. We desired to STOP PL'I..MAN (CAR and shut off his income, thus forcing f him to arbitrate, but the railroad men Y made the Pullman employee grievance r their own. The General Managers' areo elation had been organized with the avowed intention of giving assistance to railroads in labor troubles. The evident c aim was to drive organized labor from I existence. No sooner had this associa tion been formed than a systematic re- I duction of railroad wages all over the I country began. The men were ready to I strike and felt they had a cause, but the I trouble would not have come when it I did had it not been for the Pullman matter. The time wau unpropitious. I did not order the strike. I had not the I power. The men did that themselves, but I do not wish to shirk any re sponsibility and am willing to say 1 heartily concurred in and approved the action taken by the men. As to violence, I always condemned it, I have written and spoken against it, believing and knowlag that a strike cannot be won by violence, as to the telegrams sent from our onks, counselling violence, I know of no such epistles. "l)ebs then said within five days after the strike was de declared the union WAD T?3 RAILROAD BEATEN. They wor paralysed he said' but in junctions were sown broadcast and shortly after the olcials of the A. RI U. were arrested for contempt of court. That beat us. About this time Gen. Miles came to Chicago, called on the General Manager' association and the asat day he was quoted in an interview esylag he had broken the backbone of the strike. Now I consider that call of Gen. Miles as vulgarly out of place. He had no more right to consult with the (Geeral Maagers' association than he had to conault with our unions. I might Nay too, its seema strange that all our lkttel and telegrams wera.. made publie property, while not a line of the railreads oerespondence was published. f it t d been I think we could prove that the General Managers' aseoolation at a secret meeting declared that they would stamp the A. R. U. out of existeneo _ enver eselationes.

Judge DuBose ordered him to stand up and then said: "Black, on an occasion like this, when we are almost in the presence of death itself, it seems to the court that what ever it might say regarding the enormity of your crime would have no effect. It might seemingly degenerate only into the abuse of a helpless man, and it would certainly lessen the force of that climax which the law has incorporated into its penal code when it says that any man who maliciously, wilfully and premedi tately takes the life of another shall suffer death." After a few other re. marks the judge pronounLed the sen tence that Black be hanged on Friday, September 28, between the hours of 9 a. m. and 5 p. m. On being taken back to jail Black asked the jailor to feed him chicken while he staid on earth. SMALL LOE8. Reported Killing of Chief snaehee in Arizona. DE~vr., Aug. 21.-News reached (en.

Cruicw.o, Aug. 21.-A. J. Carroll, ed- Mi itor of the Eight Hour Herald, was the ag first witness before the strike con.mie ab sloners today. He told of the efforts of ab the civic federation to settle the Pull ag man strike. lie was informed by Pull- El man officials that they had nothing to mi arbitrate. He believed that compulsory be arbitration applied to quasi public in. TI dustries would be beneficial, and read a aa letter from a friend in New Zealand th showing the beneficial results of govern- Is ment ownership of railroads and tele- to graphs. Malcom Mcl)owell, a newspaper re- at porter, told of the overturning and de- d. railment of the cars at Pullman. He said there were no railroad strikers In the mob. Rev. L. M. Wlckham, pastor of the Swedish Methodist church at Pullman. was emphatic in denunciation of the a' methods of the Pullman company. "When business gets slack," he said, n "The company's employes living outside of Pullman are ordered to move into the e company's houses on the peril of losing $i their positions. Men who have attempt- t ed to buy homes on the installment plan are first laid off when the force s is reduced. One man, injured in o the shops, was taken to the hospital A e Later I saw a sworn statement purport t ing to be signed by him, in which he n said the accident was entirely unavoid j able. I know the paper was a forgery, e for at the date on which it was made *, the man was unable to write his name. One of the worst features of the Pull I man system of home renting is the im a morality it encourages. Many workmen , are compelled to rent rooms. The houses n are so arranged that the roomers must I d pass through the family sleeping apart y ments, and as a result the morality in m Pullman is much below that of sur. w rounding towns." Pullnan Called For. CatcAao, Aug. 21.-The strike com mittee have notified Geo. M.Pullman to appear and testify and will also call for i several members of the General Man agers' association. rt.

Three Men Meet with Sudden Death I in the Depths of the (lieagary c Mine in Butte. p NO WARNING COULD BE GIVEN Unlooked For Flood from Adjoining Mines the Cause of the Terrible Tragedy. a B.Trr:, Aug. 2L1.-The Glengary mine, near the Parrot smelter, was the scene of a deplorable accident about noon to day, and three miners who started to work this morning in the full vigor of manhood are believed to have met a watery death in the levels below. The ] precise manner in which the accident ] was caused will not be known until an z investigation of the upper level of the ] Glengary is made, but it is supposed that the large bodies of water which had accumulated in the adjoining claims the Monitor and the Chipmunk, in some way found an opening to the workings I of the Glengary, and once started, car i rieS everything before it. The first in- i timation that anything was wrong was when about 11:30 o'clock this forenoon the miners employed on the west drift of the 100-toot level heard the sound of rushing waters, which came pouring in from the west side. The water came in with a noise like a hurricane and quick ly filed up the level. THE FRIHIITENIID 11MIN.R. started at once for a place of safety, and began climbing through the stopes to the surface, which they reached in safety. It was in the levels in the stolpe below the 100-foot level, however, that the water got in its deadly work. Michael Brady. a man about 30 years of age was working in a stops; a few feet above the 200-foot level James Morgan, about 20 years of age, and Joseph Curry, aged 24, two rugged sons of the north of England, who had been employed at the Imine about four months, were stoping between the 300 and 100-toot levels. - The water poured through the drifts I and down the stopes and shaft until I the mine was filled to near the 100 foot level. When the water ceased it shrank to the 200 toot station and at once set about to see what could be done to save the men below. While all V the men were willing and ready to re- . spend a crew of four was selected. These men got as far as the s2() toot station where they hoped to tind Brady. They I searched the stope from top to bottom c and called out in hopes that he might be within hearing distance, but received no response. As to the fate of the two I men below there was but one opinion I expressed. They had met death in the stope and no human aid could avail them after being so long submerged. Considering the fact that about sixty miners are employed on a shift it is re markable that no others were caught. At 2 o'clock preparations were being made to hoist the water out, by means of a large tank. It is believed that it will take until tomorrow morning to pump the mine out and it is not likely that the bodies of the two men below will be found until that work is ac complished.

A strong rise in home railway securities was the feature of the week. But for the unfortunate Atchison das olosures, which are denounced here as the worst specimen seen in many years, there would probably have been large buying of American se curities. As it was, the proes pect of a settlement of the American tariff question tempted many buyers and strengthened prices, the belief being that the commercial crlsie in the United States had reached its turning point. i'oreign securities, including South Americans, were all firm. The next set tlement promises to be active. Brokers are thankful because of the prospect of a revival of business. The European boursee are equally animated.

ARE DISCOUNTING THE FUTURE Sugar Bounty Men Still Hope to Se cute the Passage of Tlheir Measure By Flecting Repunlican in iMontana. Washington, and Wyoming to Vacant Seats. WAS~nlN .tro.i, Aug. 21.-Senator White the new member of the finance commit tee, is not in favor of free silver-lead ores and as all the republicans hold the same opinion it has been decided that the senate need not take into consideration the house free lead ore bill. The sugar men have taken a great deal of comfort P over the vote recently had on the motion of Senator Manderson, to instruct the senate finance committee to report an amendment to the free sugafbill re establishing the McKinley sugar bounty. It was shown that a majority of the sen ate was for a bounty. When the senate meets in December Stewart may not vote, which would leave the vice presi dent to decide against the bounty on a tie. lut it is thought by some who ad- I vocate a bounty that before a vote on the free sugar bill or an amended bill can he had, there will be three more republican votes in the senate. There are vacancies from Montana, Washing ton and Wyoming, and it is claimed by the republicans that the legislatures elected this fall will be all republican. Wants to Get A. way. Wo.sm.tSu;roN.

Every mi!i in the city is silent and the streets are tilled with idle operatives. It is esti mated that over 11,000 persons stopped work. Mill officials and Secretary Roess of the Spinners union will hold a con- t ference today and it is hoped an under standing will be reached. Secretary Ross says the members of the union ex. pect the strike to be of six months r duration. The Howland corporations will resume within a few days, as an agreement has been reached. The Spinners executive committee are today I devoting their efforts toward getting the Bennett and Columbus mills, which make the same lice of goods, as the Howland into line. The outcome of the strike now depends upon the cloth mills. Some treasurers assert that the mills will be indefinetely locked up, but others are quoted as saying that they look for a way out of the trouble quickly. The Bristol mill prosecuted recently for running Saturday afternoons is loaded with orders. The operatives at a mass meeting today voted not to return to work until the law is complied with. .

Ilerms, a newsdealer who formerly worked in the Pullman shope, said the trouble of the men was largely due to their fondness for beer. All the saloonkeepers in sur rounding towns had grown rich. lie did not believe the Pullman rents un usually high. L. H.

Aug. 22.--. special cable pi to the World says: The Irish leaders th are extremely anxious about the outlook di in Ireland for the coming winter, owing m to the rejection of the evicted tenants tc bill by the house of lords. The Paris le funds will be available for the support of ei the evicted, but the danger arises from ta the feeling throughout Ireland against tl the lords and the conviction that they are determined not to paus any evicted t+nants bill, either compulsory or vplun tary, in this parliament. The resentment of the evicted may drive them to commit crime in some places. lecretary Morely might then a be compelled to take such action as ] would render him so unpopular that the Irish party could no longer sup port the government. To increase the tension and to add to the troubles of Mr. Morley's position, the landlords are ar rangingan eviction camnaign when the winter sets in. If this is carried out dis order will be sure to follow, despite all efforts of the Irish leaders to pacify the people. The chief hope of avoiding a danger ous situation lies in the effect of a report agreed upon today by a parliamentary I select committee, declaring that the in- I tentions of parliament in passing Mr. Gladstone's land act in 1881 have been frustrated by the decisions of the land commission and recommending the passage of an amending bill rectifying the defects of the furmer measure and giving clear effect to the intentions of the commons, so that the courts cannot defeat them.

The drift of opinion on Wall stret is that up to the present time, the demand for silver has come y from speculators. They profess to know e of no direct buying for China and say in making prices, they entirely follow the London market. One prominent bullion broker said today's risn was probably assisted by the introduction in the house yesterday by Johnson of North Dakota, of a bill for the unlimited coin age of silver. The demand has not been very heavy during the pest few days and there was a disposition on the part of 'g London for dealing in futures on silver, from which it was concluded that the purchasing was not for immediate ship. nyunt on buying orders from China, but rather in expectation of an advance. At the New York agency of a Hong Kong and Sheaghal banking oueporation it was said that after the rise isilowing the a outbreak of the China-Japan war, t.e holders of silver ia this osuntry did ·ol r display any anxiety to sell and the oter ' ia by smelters were vqry light until a- .Lr-:v-~c WHICH IS RIGHT? Report that There Is No Appropria tion to Secure Collection of the Income Tax FOLLOWEO WITH A DENIAL The Senate's Seision Yesterday Was Very Far Short of a Quorum of Members. N.w YORK, Aug. ..--A special from Washington says: In addition to a long list of errors found in the Gorman tariff bill, the surprising discovery has been made by treasury department officials that no appropriation has been made for putting into effect the income tax pro. vision. Collectors of internal revenue can do nothing under the circumstances in the direction of preparing to col lect the tax. Treasury officials claim to be blameless for they forwarded a re quest to the appropriation committee more than a month ago for an initial ap propriation of .dO.O000 to be used during the current fiscal year in carrying out the income tax provision of the tariff bill it it should become a law. Whether by accident or design neither the house nor sedate appropriations committee paid any attention to Secretary O.lielo's estimate. Commissioner of Internal Revenue Miller is hopeful that when the two houses reassemble in December the amount of his estimate will be included in the urgent deticiency appropriations bill, so that the administration of the new law will be made possible. hayT' It', a Lie. WASmIlNTOs, Aug. 22. -- Pepresenta tive Sayers, chairman of the house ap propriation committee, brands as false the story printed today of the startling discovery that the appropriation com mittee had neglected or by design failed to allow the sum necessary for the aol Iecting of the income tax.
