IL HL y U OFlUBBB LEADERS VIOLATES THE TWELVE BALLOTS OUT OF MILLS CAIRO & THEBES KEEP CHILDREN REFORM WANTED CONSTITUTION SOT I ION MAKE STATEMENT AIIO I SENATOR III CALIFORNIA SAYS FRISCO COMPANY LIKELY 'TO BECOME iPURCHASER OF PROPERTY. WAS SMARTED BY L&N. To Force Illinois Central to Terms at Nashville Most Valuable Railroad Terminal Prop erty In Cairo. Speaking of the reports co.ioo.iu..g the. Cairo & Thebes railroad which lmve been in the air during the lust several ila.vi) a railroail man said yesterday ho thought he could explain why so little had hem done during tin? last year to prsh it to completion' said he realized that the financial depression may have had something to de with the cessation or work, hut this could have been only temporary. He called attention to the fact that the stopping of operations on th Cairo & Thebes here came about the name time that the Illinois Central CV. imllcfd out of Nashville. .1 This company-had gained access to that citv and had started to bui'd cost'v terminals there In competition with (lie Louisville it- Nashville ral'ro'd. 'As a set-oft to this stroke the latter company started t lie Cairo & Thebes railroad started it. through a local organization because a local organiza tion can always get more, from the people in the way of franchises than a foreign organization. This Cairo & Thebes road was started by the L. V N. Co. to compete with the Illinois Central for Cairo business, in retalia tion for the Illinois Central's In vasion of Nashville. It appears that the latter company saw Its mis-take, abandoned Nashville, turned its busi ness back to the L. & N. and that ended the fight. Now the question arises, what is the Louisville & Nashville going to do with the Cairo & Thebes? It has ncuulred Valuable terminal property here worth many hrndreds of thou sands of dollars given to It free ot charge by the people of Cairo. And (his property is steadily growing in value. The grading has been fin ished from Cairo to Carson Martin's place, anil from Santa Fe to Thebes, having a stretch of about fift:en miles between iMartin's place and Santa Fee which remains to b graded. It is a settled Tact that the Cairo & Thebes is not going to get th" right-of-way to the Thebes bridge which it wants; it will have to go over the way th" Hrldje Co. wants it to go or not go at all, and the Illinois Hoard of Railroad and Warehouse commissioner can't betp them much. But the officials of the TsHiisville & Nashville Co. are not .in a hurry ahout this matter, since they have gottfi! together with the Illinois Cen tral over the Nashville business, and of late we hear talk of negotiations pending for the sale of the Cairo ft Thebes. There was some dickering with the Cotton Hdt and Iron Moun tain people, but the latest Hiid most likely prospective purchaser is the Frisco which owns the C. & K I. and which can use the Cairo & Thebes for a direct line from Cairo to St. Louis, going over the Thebes bridge (of which it is one of the owners) and en to St. I mis over Its line on the weft side of (he river. "I saw in The Bulletin the other day that one of the officials of the Cairo & Thebes bad sai.l the road would stop at Santa Ke for the time being and cross (he bridge over that line. If that is done It can be set down that the Frisco has In-coine the owner of tlto C. &. T. proorty. and (he U & N. is out of it. "The Cairo & Thebes terminal prop erty in Cairo in my opinion and by long odds Is the most valuable rail road property in Cairo," said the gen tleman. "I do not see how they ever rot. it. President Smith certainly worked a 'rabbit's foot' on the people of Cairo, and the L. & N. eop!e owe him a heavy debt of gratin.de anil other things, even though now they ii't not seem to have any use fur (he rnprty. Hut that property will not go begging for a buyer very long, and the L. & N. will g t their money back with good interest." LANDSLIDE WRECKS VILLAGES. Tangier. Jan. 21.

GOMPERS, MITCHELL AND MOR- RISON THINK SENTENCE , MOST UNJUST. DENIAL OF FREE SPEECH In Decision cf Ji'stice Wrght in Issu ing Injunction in Buck Stove Care Labor Men Ark no Pardon. Washington, Jan. 21. "We have not asked," and will not ask, for clemency, and wc hope our friends will not iirgfj us to pursue 'such a course.'. . Loving liberty as five men do as we do it cannot, be difficult, to appreciate what Incarceration in prison would mean to us. To ask pardon would render useless all Jtrlal and , saciiifice which our men of labor and our fricudi; in all walks of life have endured, that the rights and liberties of our people, might, be restored. Such a pardon would only leave the whole race in confusion and It would have to be fought over again from the beginning." This is some of the language used n the remarkable statement signed by Gompers, Mttchel and Morrison in the current, number, of the American cd erationisl, in formal protest against the action of Justice Wright: in sen tencing them to imprisonment for con tempt of court in the Buck Stove and Hange. case, December 2'.). Denial of Free Speech. Gompers heads ills statement "Judge Wright's denial of free speech and free press,"' and he declares, "we will not 'bate' a single word nor take a single letter back". Gompers refers to the "Intemperate and -vindictive spirit displayed by the justice" in a separate statement but. be joins with Mitchell 'and Morrison in declariu,'! they woitM not-,, "enter tnta- euiMpeu. Hon with the honorable court In the use ef Invectives, rancor and scathing denuiiciaiiim", and that they should protest "against the court's unprece dented and unwarranted flaggalalior. of the cause of the people we have the honor to represent." Necessary to Disobey. That the trio of labor leaders fully understand the rsponsibility they as sume In tusking their statements Is shown by their declaration Hint even though they may be held In additional contempt, "we are willing to accept the consequences. It may he neces sary to the preservation of the liber ties of the people that a judge should be disobeyed. Judges sometimes usurp power and become tyrants Disobedience to a tyrant is obedience to law." lb-re Is another statement "where a judge Issues an injunction like th.it in the Buck's Stove and Kango com pany case, it is the judge who defies the law and not the citizens who re fuse obedience to his injunction man dates, which would deprive men of their constitutional rights." The statement enters in a close analysis of (he famous njiinction eas and it is asserted that Mitchell wa not present at the labor meetings which directed the circular letters a! lacking the Buck Stove and Range company; that be dd not sign or hao knowledge of its circulation. It Is asserted that Gompers removed the name of the firm from the "We don't patronize" list as s-sm as the iiijuno iton became operative ami had no In tent to defy the order of (he eon it by Its discussion. Finally, in conclii ion It is said, "we are not disrespect ful to the courts when we protest against a wrong decision, rather arc we helping the courts to mainlal i their proer dignity by ioniing out when a judge st ps from the path of dignity and right and justice.
