The project has lieen under negotiation

lent on Roth Side and Truthful Ka
pnrts Hard to Obtain Editor Carroll's
Views Pullman Poverty.
CniCAGO. Aug. 1 Michnel J. Carroll,
editor of Tlie Eight Hour Herald, was the
first witness before the labor commission.
Being asked what, in his opinion, could
be done to prevent strikes, Carroll replied
that if good times could he maintained
there would be no strikes. Hard times
being present, thera should be some recog
nition of the rights of humanity ontsida
of the strictly business views of the mat
ter. V hen workingmcn were ground
down so that they could not live on the
pay they received thera were bound to lie
strikes. In mai uf.icturing establish
ments the first thin usually dane when
business becomes d -pressed was to reduce
wages, the reduction being followed by
strikes. Mr. Carroll thong'at trades
unions should be legalized and encour
aged, ns by their strength they would
make reference of disputes to arbitration
more frequent. He also favored govern
ment ownership of railroads.
What lie Saw of Rioting.
Malcolm McDowell a reporter for The
Record, was next called and testified to
what he saw of rioting during the strike.
He saw a mob of nbout twenty men upset
two cars at Bine Island. Xo one in the
crowd looked like a railway man. He
thought they were brickyard employes.
The men who righted the cars and cleared
the tracks were not interfered with by the
crowds beyond some chafiing remarks.
AVhen Marshal Arnold read the United
States court injunction the crowd jeered
and hooted. Among the crowd to which
Deputy Allen read the injunction at an
other point there were several intoxicated
men and these made most of the dtsturli
nnce. Many of the men did not seem to
understand the injunction. Several
American Uailway Union men mounted a
car and told the crowd the nature of the
injunction nnd advised them to leave rail
road property alone, boon after thecrowd
Ciive. the Marshals a Dad Name.
He also knew of an engine being thrown
from the track, but did not know who
did it. He rode on the pilot of the engine
pulling the first train tht passed through
I!lue Island under military escort. The
train was not attacked, but at Fifty first
street a crowd of about IV) men hml
gathered on the track. The train slowed
tin. the soldiers inniivd from iho r-m-a .,!
dispersed the trowd. At Thirty-eighth
RTT"wr, stones were thrown from the
back vards. One -miA -nB ti.nwn f.nn.
the crowd and struck a soldier, who dashed
into the crowd and thrashed tiie mm who
threw the stone and the crowd applauded.
Along the track at different poiuts there
were twenty-eight cars npset on the
tracks. This was done, Mr. McDowell
was informed, by a crowd from the stock
yards. In the crowds along the tracks
were ninny women aud children. Much
of the t rouble was caused by the deputy
United Slates marshals, who were aggres
sive, insulting, and always seeking to pro
voke trouble.
lti.th Sides Wonld Lie.
Keporters could not get correct accounts
of occurrences uuloss they saw them, as
both sides would lie.
Kev. M. L. Wickhnm, of the Swedish 3L
E. church, just outside of Pullman, said
that Pullman wages were cut so low that
the men could not live on what they
received. Hents were one-third higher iu
Pullman thau in Keusiugtou aud Kose
laud. The revereud gentleman gave two
reasons why the employes did not move
out of Pullman; one was that they would
lose their jobs if they did; the other was
that. "Kensington is a less aristocratic
looking place, and people who have lived
iu Pullman do not like to go there." Kose
laud was more moral thau Pullman, be
cause many of the lullmau tenants had to
take roomers to enable them to pay their
rent. The arrangement of the rooms iu
the Pulimau houses was such that room
ers had to passtbrough the family sleeping
room. This was conducive to immorality.
Stories of Violence, hut o liluter Identi
fied Had Kurshals.
A hatch of reporters followed and it
should be sa'd that each oue, including
McDowell, was asked as a preliminary
question whether he cad beeu instructed
to color his reports, or had done so with
out instructions, or whether his reports
had beeu altered by the editors, etc. Each
snd every ou replied '"no" to tiie question.
All of them had seeu violence, but uoue
of them kuew who committed it; the riot
ers were uukuowu toughs. Tlie crowds
were also sprinkled with women and chil
drtu and in some instances the rioters
were women and children; but iu uo in
stance was any I oily identified.
Kay linker, a reporter for The Record,
told of the firing ou the crowd by
the United Slates troops at ilumuioud. A
small crowd of men, led by u tough lrom
Chicago known as "Pat," attempted to
overturn a Pullman car. Around tlieui a
great crowd ot w oiueu and children aud
a few iueu had gathered when the L'uited
States troops urrived aud beyau iiring
without warning. Several men and wom
en were shot. Not one of them had any
thing to do with the attempt to overturn
tbe car. Xoue of the men who attacked
the rr.r belonged to the Americ m Kail way
I'uiou. If the police at Hammond had
done their duty there would uot have been
any trouble. The deputy marshals were
no better than the police.
This crowd at Hammond overturned
sixty cars. An engiue was turned loose
nnd run into a freight car. Keporters
couldn t get facts because both sides lied.
Deputy marshals were uo good.
IL T. Cleveland, a Herald reporter, saw
men, women, aud children overturn cars:
saw no railway men; most of the rioters
wore white rtbbous, but this the reporter
said did not indicate that the rioters sym
pathized with the strikers. Deputy luar-
snais, i. ieveianu said, were - a low, con-
tiuniitiLle lot of men." He saw a lone
policemaii try to prevent tiie overturning
of a car, aud a ooten cocked pistols were
pointed at bim in a minute. He was told
to go aud he weut.
At Kcot street Cleveland saw a train
stopped by strikers. At the time many
strikers were near the roundhouse, but
took no part in the trouble. Among these
witness saw only one drunken man.
rhere was only a very small percentage of
railroad men in the rioting, and if the po-li.-e
had kept the tracks clear from the be
ginning there would have la-en no trouble.
Nat C. Hut ton, a reporter for The
Tribune, was the next witness, lie told
if the scenes at Blue I-dand when the in
junction was read, lis related how the
strikers' committee hnd threatened news
paper reporters and hnd assaulted one or
two of them. He saw the attacks on the
rar and roundhouse and knew III at they
had beaten s.-veral men who had not quit
Work. Most of this violence was done hy
men not strikers nor railway employes.
The depiuy marshals tliJ little or uothiug
to preserve order.
Strikers' Itellt-f Committee Makes Oat a
tad Slate of A ft aim.
Governor Altgeld heard the strikers' re
lief committee f ell the extent ot the desti
tution in Pullman. They showed that
they had given aid to 2.4fi3 families duriu g
the strike. T.'ie total amount spent on re
lief had been f 19,00.1. Hut subscriptions
hat-e now ceased. The committee thought
that 1,01)0 families had been made self
supporting by the opening of the shops,
leaving J. 2 0 to lie provided for aud noth
ing to provide with.
The grocers .of Pullman trusted the
strikers unt il it was impossible to do so
longer without bankruptcy. As a contri
bution tHthe question of enforced pay
ment of Pullman rents tlie committee
stated tha originally nlioit half strikers
result d in Pullman and half in Koseland
and Kensington, the latter half compris
ing most ot the common laborers and the
Pullman half most of the skilled work
men. The men who have returned to
wo-k are principally the laborers from
Koscland and Kensington.
The talk about evictions seems to have
beeu premature, Xo one has been evicted,
although a number are moving out. Iu
ueurly all these cases they owe considera
ble rent, but are going wit hout settling;
they cannot settle, having no money. The
company is not mterferring in any way.
Most of those who would fro have not
enough money to get away. There is talk
of asking Puilmau to provide free trans
portation. Pimples, boils anil other humors
of the blood are liable to break out
in the warm weather. Prevent it by
taking H nod's Sarsaparilla.
