f the sUte of , trade says: The move
ment of Keneral merchandise throughout
the country is smaller in volume. Spring
trade is finished and orders for fall deliv
ery are, with few exceptions, not meeting
expectation. Jobbers in leading lines at
almost all tho larger cities report sales
almost without exception as of a hand-to-mouth
description. The extension of the
coal and coke strike, accompanied by
riots at Cleveland and Mesalia, has enipha
itd the depression. The industrial situ
Ition, therefor, has not improved.
strikes of iron-ore miners, amonir build

Judge Coolrjr Telia Jut What Uncle Sam's
Government Is.
ASS AltBOU, Mich., May 5. Judge
Thomas M. Cooley delivered an address to
the university students on "Free Institu
tions." which was virtually a discussion of
the Coxey movement from a constitutional
standpoint. The judge spoke first of the
nature of our institutions and govern
ment. It is a representative nud not dem
ocratic government The duty of the citi
zen is to vote for a representative and
when be has done thnt lie almost ontirelv
ceases to be a political power.
Suppose a large class of people heco me
dRsuiistied with the conduct of the gov
ernment and 10,000 arise iu each state and
march on Washington to demand that
eight hours be a day's lab r. or that the
uationttl government improve tho roads
or issue more money. They claim to voice
the demands of the people; but they repre
sent but a fraction of the tieotl Tim
function of the citizen is to vote. The so
called army has no power to coerce a
single representative at the seat of govern
ment. The petitioner cannot go to congress in
liersou with his petition. Accoriliug to
the principles of our government it must
he preseuted by tho representative of the
people. When each man attempts to de
termine the law there is a state of an
archy. There is one law which tiie people
created, and that is the constitution. The
presetit Coxey movement, said the judge,
may be a f arce, but it looks to a revolu
tion which cannot be accomplished short
of civil war.
Flf-hting the Elght-IIonr Law.
MofXT Vkunon. Ills., May 5. The cases
involving the constitutionality of ths Illi
nois eight-hour law which was passed by
the general assembly June 17, Ik-jj, were
argued before the supreme court. The piain
tills iuenor were prosecuted and convicted
iu a Chicago criminal court for the viola
tion in section 5 of the act of the general
assembly which provides that "no female
shall be employed iu any factory or work
shop more than eight hours iu any one dav
or forty-eight hours iu any one week." Iu
each case it was asserted that that act was
unconstitutional because it places un
warranted restrictions upou the Individ
ual', right to coutract.

Wasiiinxtos. May 5. Congressional
salaries for the moot h of April became
due yesterday, so that members had their
Erst experience with the new procedure cl
"locking ' for absenteeism. Up to Thurs
dny night S13 members had filed their
certificates showing the number of days,
if any, they had been absent. Yesterday
about fifty more certificates wore put in,
leaving al out, lO members unncccunted
fir. In the certificates thas far receive'l
s:x day is the greatest nnmber cf absent
days admittel by any member. The
"dockage" for this ut $13 C'JS per day is
13. Th great majority of the mem
bers certify that they have not been ab
sent at all. and the most of those who
certify absence limit the period to cno or
twjdays. At this rate the total deduc
tions will be small.
I'utt Them on Their Honor.
Tiie congressmen are showicg much uu-c-asiness
iu ::iaking out the certificates, as
there is nothing beyond their word of
honor to show how many days they have
been absent. They feel reluctant to sur
render a part of their silary and yet are
bound in h.nior to report the days for
which deduction should lie made. Some
of the certificates were written over on
both sides with apologies and excuses for
absence, niemliers hoping in that way to
secure their full pay and yet admit ab
sence. The sergeaut-at-ar:ns notes only
the sp-.'cifirr statements of ulwcnce and does
not. attempt to pass judicially 6a the long
nnd lab i-ed excuses. The ouly excuse
r.-coguized by law is sickness, -
Not Going llrhind the Tirtorna.
It is said that the certificates of one en
tire state delegation show not a day ol
absence, although three of the delegation
have been ulistut a considerable part of the
entire month, and none of them claimed to
b3 sick. Care is licing takeu to keep
from publication the individual names ol
mem 1i:ts dorke'd, as it might cane ques
tions to be raised as to the accuracy of the
amount deducted. Sjicaker Crisp nnd
Sirgeant-at Anns Snow are riot going
back of the face of the returns made by
each member. Many of the certificates
with. the doubtful excuses were submitted
to the first comptroller of the treasury, r
Law Itrpi-alod by Implication.
Representative Wono, of Pennsylvania,
has submit ted to the house a minority re
port ou the questiou submitted by the ju
diciary committee as to the "docking" of
salaries of members. The majority re
port upheld the old law under which de
ductions for absenteeism ure now being
made. Hut Stone's report, concurred in
by Childs nud Updegraff, reviews the
laws bearing on congressional salaries and
concludes that section 40, under which de
ductions are uiade, has been repealed by
rrruliar View of the Case.
It is further contended that even if sec
tion 40 is still in force the deductions shall
be on n basis of a congressional salary of
$3,0U0 per year which was the amount paid
when section -iO was enacted. In conclu
sion the report says: "We, therefore, re
spectfully submit that the sergeant-alarms
has no legal authority to withhold
from the members any portion of their sal
ary on account of absence."
The Fight To I5e Made on the
I'eacenble Assembly.'
'Kight ol
Washington, -May 5. The commonweal
leaders were bt-forj the public once more
yesterday when they were before Judge
Miller's police court for violating the
District laws. "Marshal" Browne was a
little uplifted by his pro'mincucc aud at
onetiuiu put, in a word of comment re
garding the proceedings. Jud;;e .Miller,
who is a bardheaded magistrate, exhibits
a tendency to treat the titled common
wealers like other defendants and threat
ened to have the marshal consigned to the
dock. There was an audieuce gathered
which filled the court room nud included
most of the Populist leaders as well as
other uiemliers of congress.
Senator Allen, while disclaiming sympa
thy with what he called the visionary ideas
of Coxey, made a strong plea for the con
stitutional rights of citizens to peaceably
assemble uud petition cougress. Judge
Miller refused a separate trial for Coxey,
so the three defendants are iu o:;e boat.
Tho plea of "ri-htot peaceable assem
bly" will be the one the case will be
fought over, and if Coxey is as good as his"
reported word he will lake the mutter to
the mpreme court to find whether there is
a piece of public property iu the country
that can be shut to a popular nstcinbluge.
The trial is coutiuuing today.
