HARMONY IS COUNSELED Distinguished Speakers Ad dress the New England Democratic League BRYAN THE MAIN ONE But He Fails to Point the Way to Thorough Harmony in • the Party TALKS OF THOSE WHO DESERTED IN 1896 Declares That Democrats Must Meet Present Issues Unflinchingly and With a Determination to Win— Points Out Patches of Weakness in The Armor of the Republican Party. BOSTON, July Nearly 4,000 Democrats gathered at Nantasket to day and participated in the "harmony" meeting, arranged by the New Eng land Democratic league, the new polit ical organization which is expected to develop its strength in the fall cam paign. Mayor P. A. Collins, of this city, acted as "moderator," as he ex pressed it, and presented Edward M. Shepard, of New York; Senator Ed ward W. Carmack, of Tennessee, and William J. Bryan, of Nebraska, who expounded and discussed the issues of this campaign to the marked satisfac tion of the audience. Col. W. A. Gaston and Charles S. Hamlin, rival candidates for the Demo cratic gubernatorial nomination in Massachusetts, were present, while Lewis Nixon, of New York, and Con gressman Wilson, of that state, and John R. Thayer, of Massachusetts, were , conspicuous among the guests. Hon. Henry F. Hollls, secretary of the league, who was the active spirit in arranging the meeting, marshaled his forces at the boat, leaving for Nantasket shortly after 11 o'clock, the party including all the organization's guests. It took an hour to make the run down the harbor and on arrival the party was escorted to the Rockland house, where a meeting of the league was held. A r jeption by Mr. Bryan, Mr. Shep ard and Mr. Carmack followed, and then at 1:15 three hundred members of the league sat down to a banquet in the great dining room of the hotel. Among those at the dinner was Miss Ruth Bryan, who is accompanying her lather on this trip. Then the Speaking. At the conclusion of the dinner the #rowd repaired to the mammoth tent en the lawn in front of the hotel. In a few minutes every seat was taken and the canvas at the sides was removed an order that hundreds who were un able to get in might see and hear. The speakers' appearance on the platform was the signal for loud and continued applause. Mayor Collins introduced Edward M. Shepard, of New York, who said in his address: "The American people are today thoroughly ready to deprive the great monopolistic interests of the country of the special tariff privileges which they enjoy. If the Democratic party in selecting its issue defer, as it is bound to do to the popular will, it has no choice. The issue of tariff reform is Irrevocably at the foremost." Senator Carmack followed, and for nearly an hour and a half held the at tention of his hearers. Amonj^ other _*ings, he said: "The president is now engaged in a terrific lingual assault upon the trusts. He demands that there shall be more and stronger laws to curb the power. I have always understood it to be the duty of the president to advise con gress by message of such legislation as he thinks will promote the general welfare. But he waits until congress has adjourned and then tells the peo ple what he intends to have enacted by some other congress at some other time. If you wish to deal effectively *tfith monopoly, if you want to sup press the trusts, you must put a party In power that means to do it. We know that the Republican party will not even try." , Bailey Writes. ' Senator Bailey's letter contained the following: "All Democrats agree with each oth er upon the main and permanent prin ciples of our government, and they ought to be willing to submit theii differences over issues, however im portant to the assembled wisdom .of our party, and abide by the decision when fairly reached. Upon no other. •fcasis can any organization be main tained and there is no organization to which this best can be so easily ap plied as the Democratic party. A Democrat's party affiliation ought to be determined upon what we have been pleased to call the fundamental principles to the government and sure ly it ought to be easy for men who agree upon those * principles to su bordinate their differences upon issues of a day or of a decade, and' act cor dially and harmoniously together." Now Comes Bryan's Turn. The presentation of Mr. Bryan de veloped great enthusiasm. Cheers greeted him as he stepped to the front of the platform, and he was several times interrupted by demonstrations of approval. He said: "There can always be harmony among Democrats who have the pur pose that Jefferson had and are will ing to employ the methods that Jeffer son employed. There can always be harmony among Democrats who be lieve ln a government of the people and are willing that all the depart ments of the government shall be op erated by the people and for the bene fit of the people. Differences of the mind can be reconciled; differences of purpose cannot. Between one who is Continued on Fourth Paae.

" FRIDAY MORNING, JUI,Y 25, 1902. -TEN PAGES AS TO INJUNCTIONS JUDGE JACKSON EXHAUSTIVELY EXPLAINS THE WHOLE PHI LOSOPHY THEREOF "MOTHER"JONES AND OTHERS FOUND GUILTY Nobody Has a Right to Prevent a Man . From Working for Wages He Is Sat isfied With—lnjunctions Have Been in Use for Thousands of Years. PARKERSBURG, W. Va., July 24.— Judge Jackson rendered his decision in the "Mother" Jones contempt cases to day. It reviewed the evidence careful ly. The conclusion reached was that all the defendants had violated the in junction and were guilty of contempt of court. Sentence in the case of "Mother" Jones was postponed. In the case of the,four foreigners, who cannot speak English, sentence was postponed until the arrival of their interpreter. Thomas Haggerty was given ninety days in jail and the other five defend ants sixty days each. The opinion supported the right of the courts to use injunction and the right of labor ers to work when they wish to do so without interference from organized labor or any other source. Judge Jack son said: "What is an injunction? Is it the ex ercise of an arbitrary power by the courts of the country, or is it a power that has been recognized from a very early date as one of the branches of administrative justice? I answer this question by affirming that the ordinary use of the writ of injunction is to pre vent wrongs and.* injuries to' persons and their property, or to reinstate the rights of persons, to their property when they have been deprived of it. It is the most efficient if not the only remedy to stay irreparable injury and to punish those who disobey the order of a court granting the writ. In Use in Roman Empire. "In the language of the text writers it is prohibitory and restitutory.7 A similar writ to this was in use in the days of the Roman empire and has al ways been in use in England from the foundation of the common law. It has been in use in this country since the organization of the government. It is a mistaken idea to* suppose that the courts of this country ill-use this writ. In my long experience on the bench I cannot recall a single occasion When: any court, either federal of state, ever abused it in what is known as strike questions. It is true , that our courts have been criticised severely by per sons who are inimical to the use of it and have denounced the courts for governing by injunction, but this crit icism is so obviously unjust to the, courts that it is unnecessary to enter tain into a denfense of them. "I do not question the right of the employes of this company to quit work at any time they desire to do so, unless there is a contract . relation between them and the employer, which should control their right to quit. At the same time I do not recognize the right of an employer to coerce the employes to continue their i work when they desire to quit. - l/v. Employes Must Not Be Coerced. "While I recognize the right of all laborers to combine for the purpose of protecting all their lawful rights, I do not recognize the right of laborers to conspire together to compel employes, who are not dissatisfied with their work in the mines, to lay down their picks and to quit their work without a just or proper reason therefor, merely to gratify a professional set of agita tors, organizers and walking delegates, who roam all over the country as agents for some combination, who are vampires that live and fatten on the honest labor of the coal miners of the country and who are busybodies, creat ing dissatisfaction among a class of people who are quiet, well disposed and Who do not want to be disturbed by the unceasing agitation of this class of people. I "In the case we have under consid eration these defendants are known as professional agitators, organizers and walking delegates.. They have nothing in common with the people who are employed in the mines of the Clarks burg Fuel company. The strong arm of the. court of equity is invoked in this case,- not to suppress the right of free speech, but to restrain and inhibit these defendants, whose only purpose is to bring about strikes by trying to coerce people who are not dissatisfied with the terms of their employment, which results in inflicting injury and damage to their employers as well as the employes. . . • Right to Work for What He Will. "The right of a citizen to labor for wages that he is satisfied with is a right protected by law and is entitled to the same protection as free speech and should be better protected than the abuse of free speech in which the or ganizers and agitators indulge in try ing to proddce strikes." The court then referred to "Mother" Jones' speech near the Kinnikinnick mines, saying her utterances were the outgrowth of the sentiments of those who believe in communism and an archy. . , "The evidence showed that 'Mother* Jones haa called the miners slaves;; said she did not care anything for in junctions; that it was a duty to urge the men at work to lay down their tools and advise the men to strike; that the, judge was a hireling of the coal company, and the coal operators were all robbers. She said in her speech to pay no attention to Judge Jackson or to the court, but just make the miners lay down their tools and come out.. . "It is true," says the court, "that 'Mother' Jones denied some- of the statements of | the witnesses, but her denial was not positive, but equiv ocal." The court, after reciting other 'acts in violation of the injunction, conclud ed: "I reach the conclusion that the defendants in this case who .were serv ed with notice of injunction have vio lated it, and so have treated with con tempt the order of this court." 7 7;Judgment Suspended. Judge Jackson suspended judgment in the case of "Mother" Jones. He stated that she had been found guilty of contempt, "but as she was posing as a martyr he would not send her to jail or allow her to force . her. way into jail." He said he would hold convic tion over her, and if she again violated the injunction he would sentence her heavily. Thomas Haggerty got ninety Cantinuad on Third Pane. AIMED AT SOCIALISM AMONG THE RUSSIANS Secret Rescript From the St. Peters burg Ministry Falls Into ' Hos tile Hands. BERLIN, July 24.—A secret rescript of the Russian ministry of the interior, dated June 11 and addressed to the heads of the provincial police 'of the government of Saratov, has come into the hands of socialists here. -The re script calls attention to the present risings and directs the police to sup press any disturbances among the peasants unsparingly. It then enters into an analysis of how what are call ed "undesirable .phenomena," . among the peasants, are%icited, saying: ' "Evil-minded men are trying to or ganize propaganda committees among the country population. For this pur pose the brightest and most energetic peasants are selected , and : taught a smattering, of history and sociology of the labor movement, all tending chiefly to agitation purposes by means of in struction by forbidden bfoks. Not only are the people harmed by the circula tion of illegal writings^ but even through the circulation/of legally per missible books. Unreliable men come in contact with the country population and systematically J seek out the most excellent peasants tof educate as lead ers of the movement.*. 7 V "Also much popular literature is in circulation, painting the darker sides of peasant life and the misery and poverty of the people, thus strengthen ing the elements of discontent among the peasants. Moreover, it is observed that politically, untrustworthy men put themselves into relations with the country districts through students of clerical works and teachers in semi naries and in surveyors' and garden ers' schools. ' "..;". Hi ,7y' y '-.-7 :* "Furthermore, the agitators having selected a village where they intend sowing anti-governmental .ideas send thither peasants ;as i servants, book agents and peddlers. | In making known the above I regard if as necessary to add that in all cases where disturb ances occur the local officials are re sponsible for preventing the 'same and will be held to the strictest accounta bility."

Train No. 2 was flying eastward at limited speed when the engine struck a loaded coal car which in the darkness had escaped from the siding in Xenia and had run down grade to the danger point. The engine struck it at full speed and was turned over with Engineer Clarke underneath. The postal car, combination car and day coach, im pelled by the heavy sleepers behind, piled over the engine. Two Pullmans followed and were laid across the track at right angles. A gas tank under one of the cars exploded, setting fire to the wreck, and the postal car, the coaches and two sleepers were entirely destroyed.
