Chicago. Aug. 20. The- president's
commission to inquire into the recent la
bor troubles resumed its sitting in the
district court room on the third floor of
the federal building. The room was well
filled with interested listeners, but there
was no crowd. The first witness called
was Thomas W. Ileathcote, chairman of
the Pullman strike committee. Chair
man Carroll D. Wright of the commis
sion asked Mr. Heathcote many ques
tions. Mr. Heathcote's answers
were to the effect that the
Pullman enmpauy's statement that the
company's books mip'it be looked over by
the employes was nu-nly a statement by
one of the clerks. When the employes
weut to investigate the books thev were
retused. He said that the Puilman brauch
of the American Railway union was
formed during the last of March and the
month of April. Nearly all of the 4.f:00
employes of the company joined the
union. Kach man paid 1 for the privileces

one else was delaying.
The next witness put on the stand was
Miss Mary A. Wood, 3t2 Stevenson street
"Have you been au empiove of the Full
man company?" was asked."
"Are you one of the strikers?"
Ml Wood trilil tin. ;.. .; -i
she had worked for the Pullman company
"ecemoer, 1-jj.j. to .M:iv, 1WH, m the
electrical department. Her f;uher had
died some time a;o in the company's em
ploy. She had to support her mother ou
the a day see received from the Pull
man comiuiny. She lived in one of the
l'uilman houses and paid $17.71 a month.
She bad worked for the company three
years ago, nt that time receiving from
il.75 to 42.25 a day in the upholstery de
partment. Notice or eviction.
Miss Wood showed the commission a
notice of eviction, dated May 3. she had
ved i rom Jhe egmpat.y .Shu ossified
thai Jlie had j.aid tier reat to April bu. The
company, by mistake, had credited the
reut to her sister. When she aked for a
rectification s he was refused. She had not
yet been eVicted.
Frank E. McDonald of 574 Hastings
street, a locomotive engineer and president
of local uniou Xa 3., A. Ii. L, recited
the history of several grievances
several men had against several rail
roads "under his jurisdiction as president
of the local union." These grievances had
trfven the members of his union, he said,
just cause to strike. When he came to
iuii 01 uie uiie birifce ne said bis union in
structed him to go to the convention and
vote for a strike. At first he opposed the
sympathetic strike because the American
Kailway union was not old euough and
strong enou.h to defeat the General Man
agers' association. But he did vote for
the strike because he was positively in
structed to do so.
Advised Against Violence.
Mr. MacDooald said be had at all times
tOld hiS men tO AVOid rinlur.n .n l
away from the railway tracks, nnd to
carry themselves like gentlemen. He had
taken it upon himself to threaten to fiue
any member of his union who snould get
drunk during the existence of the strike.
Tue witness himself bad not set foot in
the yards or offices since he left the cm
ploy of the Great Western railroad.
Asked what be knew about the stoppage
of mail trains the witness said that the
Chicago and Great Western mail train
No. 2 on June 28 last was "tilled" by the
management of that road and its crew
was used to take out an excursion train
to Su Claire. This mail train was oli
structed by the railway mnnauers and not
by the strikers or the members of the
American Railway union.
WILL APPEAL TO ALTGELD;
Actual Starvation Htara Pullman Strikers
in I he Fare.
Chicago, Aug. 2j. The Pullman strik
ers have appointed a committee to appeal
to Governor Altgeld for relief. The ladies'
auxiliary of tue American Kailway union
will send a committee to Mayor Hopkins
for the same purpose. The strikers have
been driven to this action by the presence
of actual starvation in their midst. The
committees will act at once. The men's
committee is composed of Frank A.
Pollons, L. W. Newell and Theodore
Ithode. The women's committee will con
sist ot three members of the auxiliary.
The suffering that prevails araong-strik-ers
is b.'yond calculation. Every hour
report are received that tell of families
that have been without food for thirty
six hours and of others that have bad
only dry crusts of bread and water for
three days. Tho former employes of the
Pullman company will ask for suite and
muuicipal aid. not as strikers, but as un
employed men willing to work, but un
able to obtain employment.
