Antl-I tmloiilat lulltx. The announcement In The Dee that the populists of Pottawat amle county were In tending to put up a county ticket this fall , In splto of the fusion with the democrats on the congressional ticket , aroused considerable In'erest in local political circles. A well known populist , In conversation with a Bee reporter , unbosomed himself this way : "My reason for wanting to put up a county ticket Is that If we don't have a ticket It will look as though populism had died out In Po tawattamle county. Such men as Klnnchan. Gillette , Churchill , John Ahles , Mjers , and the rest of us , went Into the party originally as a matter of principle , and for us to llo down now. Just when everything Is looking our way , would be to acknowledge that principles didn't count for \ery much when olllces were to be had. There Is no reason why we should vo'e for democrats for county olllces , and there Is no reason for thinking that If we leave our county ticket blank we will vote for the democratic candl- dates any moro than for the republican. As many of us were republicans as democrats before vvo got to be populists , and to put up no ticket would probably result In dividing our forces between the two old parties , so that neither one would be particularly bene fited. No , populism Is growing In Polta- wat'arnle county. Wo can ECO that from the fact that we have our candidate for con gress supported by the democratic party. And now vvo want to go ahead and bhow the public that It Is growing , by polling Just as many votes as wo can In the county elec Ions. " Mldniiinmur Dencllt.

By far the largest audience which has yet been In attendance atu upon ] tli < rlko commission's sessions was present ] today , attracted by the appearance as a witness of President C. V. Debs of the American Hallway union. The court room where the comifllssloiitrs sit was crowdsd from the bench to the doorw.ijs when Presi dent Djln took the witness chair. "Now tell us , In your own way , Sir. Debs , " said Commissioner Wright , "what > ou know of the Pullman strike and Its resu.ts. " Leaning forward In his seat , the tall leader of the great strike begun In a low , clear voice , u recital , which gradually became more earnest and forUbl ; as he proceeded , until It developed Into almost un oration. He told of having received word that a strike In Pullman was Imminent and of his coming to Chicago to Investigate. "I found , " he said , "that the- men were working for the Pu Iman company at wages upon which thej could not live. I found that salailes hud been cut tlmo and aguln , until skilled mechanics were working their lives away for wages not sufficient for a day laborer. That the town of Pullman , with Its shops , Its houses und Its stoics , was so cch med that every penny the worklngmnn made found Its way back to the Tbmpuny. "In fact I found the worklngmen of Pull man In n pltablo condition , nnd determined I would do all In my power as president of the American Ilulhvay union to Improve the con ditions of these men. The stilke followed , ordered by the men themselves. Then came the boycott , ordered by duly elected delegates our convention , and then followed the rail road strikes , ordered by the various local union , each of which was authority In Itself. Otbs then told of the stilks , his account differing but little from that of the other American Hallway union olllclals who had preceded him on the witness stand. ALL. TUHNEI ) ON PULLMAN. "Would the raliroad strikes have occurred there had been no Pullman trouble ? " iisked Commissioner Wright. "No , the Pullman strike was the prime cause We desired ' to Eton Pullman's cars 3ml shut off his Income , thus forcing him arbitrate. "Hut the railroad men had grievances of their own. The 0-neral Managers associa tion had been organized with the avowed In tention of giving assistance' ' to railroads In labor troubles The evldctjt 41111 was to drlvo organized labor from cjclstfiice No sooner liad this association b.cn fqrmed than a sys- tumntlc reduction of railroad wages nil over the country began. Thci cuts were made on jno road at n time , ana lli"one department n tlmo , but the systematic regularity with tvhlch th y appeared wi/s / tntllclently slgnlfl- ant. The men weio reridy to strike , and fait they Im.l cause Hut theUrOublo would not liavo como when It did hod not It been for ho Pullman trouble. The tlnu was unpro- pltlous business was dip'rcs'sed and monej tvus scarce , ' "I did not order the qtrlke. I hod not the power The rnon did It themselves Hut I do not wish to shirk any responsi bility and am willing to day that I heartll ) runctirrcd In and approved of the action taken by the men As to violence , I hive ilwajs condemned It , I have written and spoken against It , bellcvclng and Kruwlng that a strike could not be won by violence to telegrams counseling violence , I know no Instances. " "How about tha 'Iuy | a gun' telegram ? " inked Mr. Kernin. "That Is easily explained The telegram . iwis sent by a private secrctarj to n friend Ilutte , and was merely a playful expres- ilon. It was dent ns such and was so un- Jerutod. " HAD TIIR IIAILHOADS IIUATUN. Mr. Debs then said that within five dayt iftcr the strike was declared the union hit railroads beaten. "They were paralyzed , " he sa.d , "but Just that tlmo Injunctions were sown broad est , and shortly after the olllclals cf tht II. U. were arrested ( or contempt ol court. That beat us. It was not the rail roads or the army , but the power of the Un ted States courts that bat us. About that time a thing occurred which I desire to mention. General Miles came to Chicago cage , called on the General Managers assc- clatlon and the next day was quoted In an Interview as sajlnp ; he had broken the bick- bone of the strike. Now , I consider that the call of General Miles was vulgarly out of place. Ho had no more right to con sult with the General Managers absoclat on limn ho had to consult with the men of our unions. I might say , too , that It seems strange that all cf our letters and telegrams were made public property while not a line of the railroads correspondence was pub lished. If It had been , I think we could prove that the general managers nt one of their secret meetings declared they would stamp the A. H. U. out of existence. " In reply to a question Debs said that the union had taken every possible means to prevent rioting and disorder. "Wo objected to the presence of the federal troops , but not to the state troops and police. If I remember rightly no serious outbreak occurred until the federal troops arrived , as their presence Inflamed the men. " The witness then told of the trouble with the railroad brotherhoods. "The brother hoods have outlived their usefulness , " he said , "and for that reason I left the fire men's organization. They are fearfully Jealous of the American Hallway union and helped to defeat us. There Is now a move ment on foot to form a grand and un'ted railroad labor organization. Within three days a proposition will be submitted to the other railroad orders whereby all pre ent olllccrs of the American Hallway union and other unions shall resign with a possibility of election to olHcc. The principal ciuso of strife then being removed an organization will bo effected which shall Include all rail road employes. The commissioners have notified George M Pullman to appear nnd testify. They will nlso call for ECV ral members of the General Managers association The date for Mr. Pull man's testimony has not been set , but It Is expected that he will appear Tuesday or Wednesday. "What Is jour opinion as to the methods of preventing strlk s ? " asked Mr. Worthlng- ton of Debs. "My own Idea , and It Is the Idea of the American Hallway union , Is to unify all the railroad men of the country. A power like that , prudently managed , would mold strikes. The railway managers would iccog- nlz3 the vvlbdom of treating It fairly and meeting * It In a conciliatory spirit. " "Do you believe a strike Is Justifiable that Interferes with public convenience ? " "I believe striking Is justifiable no mat ter what the result when It resists enslav ing and degrading. " "Do you bellevo In government ownership of railroads ? " asked Mr. Keehan. "Yes , sir. I believe the government owner ship of railroads Is decidedly better than railroad ownership of the government. " Mr Debs was followed by Mr Morrlssoy of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen The broth rhood , ho said , did not bellevo In sympathetic strikes , but Individually the wltnosN believed In government ownership of lallroads. 13 B.

Ills visit was the result of a communication sent to him from the strikers stating that l.COO families nre near the starvation point The governor , previous to bin visit , re fused to fay what action ho should take , but It was generally bcl evcd by the strikers that they would receive Immediate assist ance. Vlco President WUkes of the Pullman company culled upon Governor Altgcld at the lattcr's olllco and offered to accompany the executive on hU trip to Pullman The governor received Mr Wlckes very coldly und In a manner wli ch was con- .itrued as a direct snub Informed the latter that he did riot wish to go with him "I prefer to go alone , " said the governor. "I think I can find my way about the town " Mr Wlckes then departed , apparently highly Indignant The governor Is making a personal Investi gation of several caees of destitution and found that the story of practical starvation had not be = n overdrawn After the Investi gation the governor asked Manager Middle- ton of the Pullman company If ho had any solution to the condition of destitution tad starvation , the existence of which all the resident olllclals had admitted. "Th ? only thing we can do , " was the an swer , "Is to put the old men bick as fast as there ar' vacancies In the shops " "But this Is slow nnd uncertain , " icplled Governor Altgcld , "and the question Is one of Immediate starvation. Can't jou put on a few hundred of the men and let them alter nate until this condition of misery Is re lieved' " Mr. Mlddleton eald he did not see how the company could change Its pr sent plans. The goevrnor will iccclve the relief com mittee of the Pullman strikers tomorrow nnd means for relieving the starving people will be devised. soviitiit : : > N Unruly Knights of I.nlxir Meeting In riilln- ( lelihl.i | I'ollcu ( 'ill It'll In.
