More Troops Held in Readines*— Wholesale Wire Cutting—Linemen Go Back. BROOKLYN, Jan. 22.—A car was started out from Halscy street depot of the Putnam avenue line at 0:12 Tuesday morning. By 6 o'clock the company had a dozen cars running. The company's linemen before daylight found that the strikers had been getting revenge during the night by cutting- the wires in many places. On Myrtle avenue near Broadway t\vo sections of wire had been cut out, and on the Gates avenue line fourteen sections were, cut out It will require several hours to repair these. A nonunion motorman was attacked at the Halsey street .station about 5 o'clock in the morning and severely beaten. A policeman who stood no:ar by refused to interfere.

In pursuance of the agreement ar- rfvcd at Monday afternoon by the linemen that they would refuse to execute any repairs on the roads still tied up, twelve men struck work at 7:45 Tuesday morning. They were sent with a repair wagon to replace wires which had been cut during the night between Gates and Knickerbocker avenues. On reaching the soot where '•>:•" JOS. G. GRACE GEN.

It is said thh-t delegates from New York- city, Newark, N. J., and Jersey City will come to Brooklyn to confer with the strike leaders to consider the /advisability of ordering a strike among the motormen and conductors of tho trolley lines in those Cities. The executive committee will advise the delegates not to do so unless they lave independent grievances, as they fear that a sympathetic strike will deprive them of the public confidence which they claim they now have. The executive committee also deprecates any attempt of other workers to strike out of sympathy. Soldifrs Will Use Their Gnnn. Col. Apple ton. of the Seventh regiment, has issued an order to the men of his command that there shall be no nioro temporizing with rioters, and that when they are assaulted with missiles of any kind they must answer with a volley of lead.

"A Flatbush avenue car was brought to" a standstill early in the day at £ros- •pect park plaza, where some iron girders and other obstructions bad been placed upon the track. The motorman and conductor, who attempted to clear away the obstructions, were pelted with stones. Seventy-five men were received at the car house of the Third avenue line to-day, and it is expected that an attempt will soon be made to operate cars on this route, which, has not turned a wheel since the strike was ordered. A man stoned the power house of the Second avenue line at Second avenue and Fifty-second street Tuesday. Many windows were broken, but no serious damage was done. A pistol shot ;-was also fired through the windows during the night. L»w After Street Car Une.

Appears Before the House Judiciary Committee. . Tries to Explain Some of His Methods of Collecting Fees—Bailey Makes Some Curt Remark*. WASHINGTON, Jan. 22.—Judjre Augustus 3. Ricks, judtfe of the district court of the United States for the northern district of Ohio, appeared before the house judiciary committee Tuesday to reply to the charges made against him by the Central Labor union of Cleveland, 0., upon which the resolution of impeachment agreed to by the committee is based. Chairman Culberson stated to Judge Kicks, when the latter appeared, that the committee had decided to allow him to make any statement he mijrht wish. Mr. 'Culberson told him that lie was not here as a witness. The committee did not request any statement, bat were ready to hear anything- he might have to say. Judfre Ricks, in opening:, referred to thn n negation made in the memorial of the "Central Labor union, to the effect that he had fraudulently appropriated some S15.o:>8 in what was known as the Birdsa.ll patent cases. His Accounts Alw:iyn Sat.liif«rt»ry. He had fully accounted for these fees, he said. Judgments in. the cases were rendered while he was clerk of the court. 11 is accountings iu the matter were entirely satisfactory to the treasury and to the department of, justice." and he had never heard any f ault found until the labor union' memorial made the charge. Mr. Culberson asked him by what rule he split up the fees and put them in records for different years, and why he did not report all at .once. He had the privilege of acting as he did. he said. -Fees were estimated and collected before the record was made up. This was the custom of the o'flice, and fees were often collected before the final record was made. This had been done in the Birdsa.ll cases. Never Approved His Owu Account*. In reply to a question he said that as judg-e he had never approved accounts made by himself as clerk. Judge Ricks presented a memorandum regarding the Birdsall cases in 1SSS. It was for his own Information and was given to the committee when they went west. Bailey Sayn He Bid Not. '••Mr. Bailey said that this data was furnished when the committee was west. Kicks Tries to Explain. Mr. Bailey, of Texas, then asked Judge Ricks if he had not testified at Cleveland that the money received by him had not been completed or earned. Judge Ricks said that what he meant was that, though he had charged himself with moneys which could not bo completed, until after approval by the •master in chancery, that was the universal practice. Mr. Bailey wanted to know why (he witness took an oath- as clerk that certain fees had been earned and received whereas the fees had neither been earned or received. After some impatience had been exhibited by Mr. Jiailey because Judge Kicks attempted to explain this, the witness, in response to a direct question as to his motive for charging himself with fees iu the Uirdsall case which had not been earned and received, said he knew the parties in the case were solvent and that he was willing to take the risk that he could collect them. In answer to another question Judge Ricks said that he only collected fees which he was willing to guarantee to the government. If- he collected any in excess of the amount guaranteed by hira as clerk then he would lose the excess. JSaUoy'tt Curt Remarks. Mr. Bailey pressed the witness to know what law he had to authorize him to carry on such a practice. Judge Ricks said at first that there was a law, but on being pressed answered that his authority lay in the practice he had established, which led Mr. Bailey to remark that he supposed if court clerks were to establish the custom of stealing that would be sufficient authority. At"one point Judge Ricks met Mr. Bailey's questioning with the statement that-the government had made no charges against him that his accounts were not satisfactory. "But this branch of the government has," said Mr. Bailey, curtiy, "and there are certain gentlemen who hare not teen indicted -who have been taking what did not belong to them." At the 'conclusion, of Judge Kicks' testimony, he was excused from further attendance. Damaging Testimony. Martin TV. Sanders, formerly clerk in Judge Ricks' court in Cleveland, took the stand and testified that fees which, he supposed were Ms as clerk were turned over to Judge Ricks on. the latter's claioi that the •witness was only temporary clerk, while he (Ricks) was the real clerk. He also told of going 1 to Judge Hicks' house at the latter's request and of being accused there by the judge of having circulated stories that Ricks bad accepted fees and not accounted lor them. This was. in March, \7itness denied that, he had circulated such a story, but said to th« judge: "It is nevertheless true that you did get fees, but they have hot been accounted for." During the same conversation, said the witness. Jndg* Ricks told him: "You had better be my friend than my enemy." WITHIN OUffc. BORDERS. Telegrams from Towns and Citl»» in Indiana.
