Judge Jenkins Upholds His Fam ous Deoisioni He Refuses to Modify It in Any of It! Important Features— Bitter Condemnation of Strikes. JICNKIN8 IS FIRM MII.WAUKKI, April 7.—The decision of Judge Jenkins on the motion mado by tho chief of the railway organlza tions for a modification of the famous strike order, grants tne teehoica! modification of the supplemental order asked for by the petitioners, while it reiterates more strongly the real position taken in the injunctional order. In reality thero is not a point yielded. The order to strike out the offensive clause, in the supplemental injunction, taken in connection with what goes before, is a deli cately pointed rebuko to the counsel for petitioners for quibbling over the ambiguity of a clause the substance of which was clearly and strongly stated in preceding sentences. The decision rests upon two propositions, which elaborately elucidated. Those are the illegal purpose and character of the strike which the order wus to prevent; and the authority of the court to prevent and punish Illegal acts. Will Be Appenlad. The case will be appealed. Before adjourning Judge Jenkins said as the question Involved was a highly important one, and it was desirable that it should be reviewed by a court ol last resort, he would gladly cooperate with counsel in taking steps to secure an appeal. Justice Hat-Ian, he said, would sit with the appellate court In Chicago on May 81 and the appeal might be laken so as to have the caso decided at ,hat time. Labor Organisations Denounced. The decision Is made noticeable by ,he pronounced stand taken by the udge on what is generally known as ,he "labor question." The vehemence of the language used, coupled with ;he general denunciation of labor organ- zations and their methods, will cause ;he order to be discussed in every sec;ion of the country. The decision con- talus fully 19,000 words, 'a large por- ,ion, however, being made up of opin- ons quoted from various decisions of other judges. After reviewing the case he judge nays in his decision: Combined Capital and Combined Labor. "In thsdlfcusslon of tho Important Md Interesting questions presented by this motion it is ot within th* province of the court to assume art In ths contest between capital and labor which.

His body will be sent to his home at St. Joseph, Mich., where he has a wife and two children. Friday night at the supper given by the local press to Read and King one of party, after all had been seated, remarked that there were just thirteen at tha table. Mr. King, apparently very much excited, but evidently in jest, jumped up and declared he would not again seat himself until another guest was provided and the unlucky number broken. ALL FAIR BUILDINGS SOLD. Bought at Private Sain by L. C. Oarrett, of St. Louie, fur •76, BOO. CHICASO, April 7.— All the big world's fair buildings were sold at private sale by the south park commissioners Friday. L. C. Garrett, a St. Louis contractor, bought the lot for »75,5UO. This vaded, and that eaoh dreeied. tf danger to the «ttt« ezlats from the combination of either capital or labor, requiring additional restraint or modification of existing laws, It is within the peculiar province of the legislature to determine the neceiury remedy, and to declare the general policy of the state touching the relations between capital and labor. With that the Judicial power of the government Is not concerned. But it (• the duty of the courts to restrain those warring faction* so far as their action may Infringe the declared law of the land, that society may not be disrupted or lu peace Invaded and that Individual and eoiporate rights may not be Infringed. Injunction the Proper Remedy. "If the combination and conspiracy alleged and the acts threatened to be dune in pursuance thereof are unlawful, It cannot, I think, b« successfully denied that restraint by Injunction Is tne appropriate remedy. It may be true that a right of action at law would arise upon consummation of the threatened Injury, but manifestly such remedy would be Inadequate. The -threatened Interference with the operations of the railway. If carried Into effect, would result In paralysis of Its business, stopping the commerce ebbing and flowing through seven slates of the union, working Incalculable Injury to the property and causing great public privation. Pecuniary compen- satlon would be wholly Inadequate. The in- Jury would be Irreparable. Compensation could be obtained only through a multiplicity ot suits against 11,000 men scattered along the line of this railway for a distance of 4,400 miles.

WHEELING, W. Va., April 7.— In the United States court Mrs. Margaret Moore was convicted of obtaining a fraudulent pension of IB, 000 and sen-. tenced to one year in the penitentiary and $1,000 fine. This is the woman who conducted a deputy marshal to a field in the southern part of the state where she had buried the money and the treasure was found. A petition to the president asking for her pardon was signed by all the court officials and attorneys. assailable ground. troversy that a court of equity may restrain threatened trespass Involving tho Immediate or ultimate dosu-ucHon of property, working Irre- | parable Injury, and for which there would be no adequate compensation at law. It will In extreme onsen, where the peril Is Imminent and the dangler gruut, Issue mandatory Injunctions requiring u particular service to bo performed, or a particular direction to be given, or a particular order to be revoked, In prevention of a threatened trespass upon properly or upon public rights. "1 need not enlarge upon tho subject. The Jurisdiction Is beyond question; 1« plenary and comprehensive." FunlihmeDt for Contempt Not Enough. The judge them cited several author- ISo night to Quit When Ha I'l»a«ei The judge then reviews the conditions that gave rise to the issuance of the writ Continuing he says: "There would teem to exist In some minds a lamentable misrepresentation of the terms 'lib- arty' and 'right' It would seem by some to be supposed that In this land one bus tha constitutional right to do as one may pleane, and that any restraint upon the will is an Infringement upon freedom of action. Rights are not. absolute, but are relative. Bights grow out ot duty and are limited by duty. One hat not the right arbitrarily to quit servloa without regard to tbe necessities of that service. Hii right of abandonment Is limited by the assumption of that service, and the conditions and exigencies attaching thereto. "Ordinarily tho abandonment of service by an Individual Is accompanied with to little of Inconvenience, and with such slight resulting loss, thin It IK u mutter of but little moment a'hon or how he may quit the service. But for all thiit the principle remains, recognized by every Just mlud, that the quitting must be timely and decent, In view of existing conditions. » • • If what I have stated be correct a» to Individual action tho principle applies with greater force to tho cano of a combination or a, large number of employes to abandon service suddenly and without reasonable notice, with the result of crippling tho operation of the railway and Injuring the public. The effect In this particular instance would havo proven disastrous. Tlio labor organizations are said to represent three-fourths of all the employes upon the niliiviiys within tho United States—an army of many Hundred thousands of men. The skilled labor necessary to the safe operation of a railway could not be readily Supplied along 4,000 miles of railway. Could Not Fill Their Plac«w. "Tho difficulty of obtaining substitutes in the place of those who should leave the service would be Intensified by the fact assorted and conceded at the argument that no member of these largo organizations would dare to accept service In the place of those who should leave, became such acceptance would be followed by expulsion from their order and by social ostracism by their fellows. If this conspiracy bad proven effective by failure on tho part of the court to issue Its preventive writ, this vast property would have been paralyzed In Its operation, tbe wheels of an active commerce would have ceased to revolve, many portions of soYon mates would have been shut off In tho midst of winter from the necessary supply of clothing, food and fuel, the malls of the United States would lave been stopped, and the general business ot seven states and the commerce of the whole country passing over this railway would have been suspended for an Indefinite time. All these hardships and Inconveniences It Is said must be submitted to that certain of these men, discontented with the conditions of their service, m»y combliw and conspire with the object and intent of crippling the iroporty, to suddenly cease the performance of heir duties, It Is said that to restrain them 'rotn so doing Is abrldgmoni of liberty and In- 'rtngemeni of constitutional right I do not so ipprehend the law. I freely concede the right if the Individual to abandon service at a proper time and In a doount manner. I concede the Ight of all the employes of this road, acting In concert, to abandon tbelr tervlco at a proper Ime and In a decent manner, but I do not coo- ede their right to abandon such service sud- lenly without reasonable notice. btrlx*rs Bitterly Condemned. "The second branch of the action has reference to the writ of Injunction issued upon the- upplemental petition of tho receivers ra training any combination or conspiracy rom having for Its purpose the Inagu ration of a strike upon tbe lines of lie railway operated by the receivers and rom orderinr, advising or approving by communication or Instruction or otherwise the em- iloyss of tbe receivers to Join In a strike. This part of the motion presents the issue whether a strike Is lawful. The answer must largely depend upon tho proper definition of the term." The judge then cited the various definitions of tli« Word strike and dwelt upon strikes in general. He said be knew of no peaceful btrike, and that no strike was ever heard of that was or could be successful unaccompanied by intimidation or violence. He continued: ••A strike without violence would equal the representation of the tragedy of Hamlet, with ,=, m ,,n n ,, the part of Hamlet omitted. The moment that ] Ine flrst, mutiny violence becomes an essential part of a scheme, : or a necessary means of effecting the purpose of a combination, that moment the combination otherwise legal becomes Illegal.

Terrible Result of an Explosion of Dynamite at Brinton, Pa, Three Men Torn »nd Mangled Beyond Recognition and Four Other* Badly Hurt. VICTIMS Of PITTSBURGH, Pa., April t.—A premature explosion of a blast of dynamite at the new Westing-house electric works at Brinton, Pa., instantly killed three laborers and seriously injured four more.

Twenty tons or more of rock fell upon the laborers, while an equal quantity of earth was scattered in all directions. When the men were extricated, half an hour later, three were dead and four were n a critical condition. Of the injured, Michael Crofar, aged 23, unmarried, was the most seriously hurt.

The proposed tramp to Monongahela city, over 18 miles of rough road, with a short stop at Elizabeth for lunch was tbe cause of it all. The march Thursday from Homestead to this city was over one of the worst pieces of road yet tramped, and frequent rests were demanded by the members of the commonweal. The short rations and the seven days'continuous marching in a week over all sorts of roads and lu all kinds of weather is having a marked effect upon the members of the army.
