TOO PROSPEROUS FOR A PANIC Hardman Says He Has No Fear of Hard Times Chieag 0 , Oot. 18—"Money is like a liquid. The moment you place an obstruction in front of It, it causes a diminution of the flow." This is one of the new financial aphorsima to which Ewdard H. Har riman, who came to Chioago to battle with Stuyvesant Fish, gave utterance when aked to express his ideas upon the future of the country. "This obstruction," he said, "has been plaoed in front of the liquid stream of money and it has already caused a serious oheck in its flow. This obstruction is the apprehension which has run like a prairie fire through the land and has permeated the minds of the people. It has been caused partially, if not entirely, by the agitation against eorporations in general and railroads in particular, and it will last until the people awaken to the faot that we must have a saner comprehension upon these important subjects." Asked if he looked for any serious effect from the rapidly changing con ditions in the financial and railroad world, Mr. Harriman replied: "Mo, I do not. I think the coun try is too great and too prosperous to have a money panic." Mr. Harriman was asked if he really thought that the alleged diffi culty in raising capital was not largely in the imagination of those who gave expression to the thought. "By no means," he replied. "The difficulty in raising money, not only fot railway enterprises, but In all lines of business, is a real and not a fancied one. Ask any merchant whom you should ohanoe to meet why it is that he is not carrying such a large stock of goods as was his cus tom, and he will reply that it is be cause of his inability to raise suffic ient capital to carry a larger stock. There is a general lack of accommo dations everywhere in the United States and it is not confined to this country. "I do not fear any serious result, however, because it is claimed that liquidation practically has taken place on Wall street and people after a time will realize that a large part of their apprehension is groundless OPERATORS AT WORK Chicago, Oct. 18.—Samuel J. Small, ousted president of the strik ing telegraphers' union, led an armed attack upon the union yesterday, took possession of the rooms and then turned them into a veiitable fortress. When tbe other officials of the rrganiznation attepmted to force their way into the office they were met by detectives whom Small had posted by the door.

Unable to secure an injunction, Small had engaged two private deteo tlves, and with a detective sergeant detailed from the city police, the -foroe went to the Monon building before any of tbo other officers and posted detectives with instructions to allow no one to enter without Small's sanction. The executive officer had accused his executive board of seeking to de throne him in order that they might have control of tbe union funds, aDd M. K. Reidy, who with Konnkamp and Sullivan, voted to oust him from o(Boe, retorted with a challenge that "Small's a liar." OPEN IN CLEVELAND.

Such laws have always been deemed benetloiul and merciful laws, especially to the poor aud depeudsot, to the laborers in our factories and workshops, and in the heated rooms of our cities; and their validity has been sustained by tbe higliaet courts of the states."
