00 GEO Decision of Judge Quarles Ma? Work a Rev- olution. TRIUMPH FOR TRADES UNIONS No Temporary Restraining Or ders Without Hearings from Both Sides." Radical Change from the Usual Practice Will Hereafter Be in Force in the Court of Judge Quarles. Milwaukee, Jan. 4. Government by injunction was given -a body blow by Judge Joseph V.

Quarles of the United States district court for the eastern district of Wisconsin. Judge Quarles has announced his belief that the practice of granting restraining or- ders, which in effect are temporary Injunctions, on ex parte satements Is all wrong. His announcement to that effect, and his declaration in his court room that in future he will grant restraining orders only after both sider to a (Mutroversy have had a hearing, createwa sensation. May Work Revolution. Carried to Its logical conclusion, tlif stand taken by Judge Quarles will work a revolution in contemporaneous court pre ccdure.

It was learned, however, that the declaration was not result of any hastily formed opinion, but 1 hat tho conviction that restraining ordrs frequently mark a great injustice had been reached after much consideration of the subject Judge Quarles admitted that the plan determined upon for the guidance of his court in the future wfluld differ radically from the usual practice, but insisted there would be a new precedent.

The effect of Judge Quarles decision, should it have the influence which it Is expected to exert upon court procedure generally, wiil be felt most strongly In the labor world, where It will be received enthusiastically. The war of the trades unions against government by injunction has been waged long and 'bitterly, with little success. In many of the large strikes injunctions and temporary restraining orders have played aa important part. GALLANT KENTUCKY EDITOR.

Santo Domingo City, Jan. 4. After a three days' battle in which fighting was of the most desperate character, the insurgent army which lias been attacking Pi.orto riatav has been decisively defeated with heavy loss. Hundreds were killed or wounded in the battle, the government troops also suffering severely.

Aside from the defeat a staggering blow was dealt the cause of the rebels in the of their commander, General Pcmetrio Rodriguez, who was killed while valiantly leading an assault that came dangerously near overwhelming a strong government posi tion. His death disheartened the besiegers and was a large factor in their rr pulse and final defeat Chief Figure of Revolution. General Rcdriguez, next, to the fugitive president, Morales, was- the chief figure of the, revolution. In fact, he is said to have been its main insplrer, and is largely due to his ability and energy that the revolt was so well organised at, its inception. Had he lived in tliat last desperate charge 'his men would probably have taken-the position, which, with its battery, would have rendered the town untenable for the government troops.

Thus, one of the chief cities would have fallen into the rebels' hands.

General Cespedes, commander of the government troops in Puerot is the hero of the hour. Like the commander of his foes, he led his men in the thickest of the fighting and inspired them to the most heroic deeds by his personal valor. 1 General Does Heroic Deeds.

Battling hand-to-hand with the charging insurgents, he cut wide swaths around him with a heavy cavalry saber which he had snatched from the hand of a dead trooper. This was in the saihe assault in which Rodriguez was slain, and the two generals fought in the most desperate fashion for a time, within a few feet of each other. 1 The Insurgents' most savage and determined charges were made upon a battery of six guns defending the main approach to the town.
