TIIE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNING.' DECEMBER
DEBS CETS SIX
The Great Labor Agitator TaKes
COMPANIONS FARE BETTER
They Receive Three Months In the County
Jail, While Sentence Is Suspended
In the Case of Mr, McVcan.
Debs Is Cast Down.
By the United Press.
Chicago, Dec. 14 Judge Woods today
sentenced Eugene V. Debs, the leader
of the American Railway union strike,
to six months in the county jail, as a
punishment for violating the Injunction
Issued by himself and Judge Grosscup
July 2 last. To the rest of the men,
with the exception of McVean, he gave
three months. In the case of McVean
sentence Is suspended. Sentence Is not
cumulative, covering the cases of the
government and the Santa Fe railroad
against the men. The same sentence Is
Imposed in each case, but both sentences
begin and end at the same time, begin
ning Dec. 24.
The defendants are: E. V. Debs,
president; Q. V. Howard, vice presi
dent; Sllverton Kelllher, secretary; L.
W. Rogers, M. J. Elliott, James Hogan,
William Burns, J. D. McVean, Leroy M.
Goodwin. The sentence Is generally
considered a light one. The case will
Debs' utterances not to commit viol
ence were doubted by tlie court. He did
not bellpve they were sincere. "With
all that has been said about the Ameri
can Railway union keeping guard over
property and being the first to arrest
offenders, not one has been arrested,"
continued the court. "By Mr. Debs' ftd
mUsion, he waa out among the men
urging 'them to Join the strike after this
Injunction was Issued. Howard did the
name. They both had committed no
violence, but advised that Pullman cars
be topped at all hazards. All the out
rages committed at Blue Island after
the speeches of Debs and Howard were
directly attributable to these people and
they are responsible for them."
The court then reviewed the mass of
telegrams In Which Debs ordered men
out and declared these were utterly at
variance with the statement made In
Debs' answer that he took no part In
continuing the strike. After thus con
cluding that there was no doubt that
the men as individuals were guilty,
Judge Woods said:
"But the point under the Sherman
law is whether these men were In con
spiracy. If they were, I believe there
Is no way by which they can escape the
moral and legal responsibility for their
No Feature In Doubt.
He then gave It as his opinion that
they were and that therefore the men
allied with them were also guilty. The
evidence left no feature of the case In
doubt. Then he said: "The court
therefore finds the defendants guilty
as charged In the indictments In both
cases and will fix the punishment the
same In both cases, but will not make
it cumulative. I have not yet written
down any punishment for these men.
I know only two of them by sight. As
this Is a criminal case, I desire to give
each one of the defendants a chance to
speak to me and say what he will."
Deep silence followed this declaration
of the court. Then a mighty hum arose
and soon the defendants were on their
feet and engaged In conversation with
counsel. Then Attorney Darrow spoke
for the nine defendants as follows:
"These defendants have nothing to say.
They believe that they did right In
ordering and continuing th'ls strike.
Two of these defendants Mr. McVean
and Mr. Elliott took no active part in
this strike, although they were both di
rectors In the Railway union. Their
names were not mentioned In the evi
dence." All of the defendants present then
stood up so the court could see them.
They did not appear to be agitated, and
several smiled from time to time.
Light Sentence Imposed.
The court passed sentence as follows:
"I think I will suspend any sentence
with regard to Mr. McVean. I am of
opinion that Mr. Elliot was actively en
gaged In this strike. Punishment should
not be vlndidtive. Neither should It be
trivial. The object of punishment for
contempt of court Is to prevent future
contempt. My conclusion 4s that the
Injunction was right. Mr. Debs Is more
responsible than anybody else. He is a
man of marked ability and of strong
character and the leader of these men.
It was in his power by merely lifting
his voice to stop all this disturbance. I
shall therefore discriminate between
him and the rest of the defendants. I
will give Mr. Debs six months in the
county jail and the rest three months.
This sentence to take effect ten days
In speaking of the decision, Attorney
Harrow, who represented the defend
"The decision is bad law, but the sen
tence Is remarkably lenient."
Vice-President Howard said he was
prepared to expect anything. Presl-

years he chose within constitutional
limits and to Impose any fine he thought
IIOWGATE TO BE TRIED.
Application for Appeal on Demurrer Is
Denied by Court.
By the United Press.
Washington, Dec. 14. The court of
appeals today denied the application
for appeal on demurrer of Captain
Howgate, the ex-United States service
officer Indicted for embezzling a large
sum of money fifteen years ago.
As the indictments for forgery,
brought against Howgate at the same
time as those for embezzlement, were
recently thrown out by Judge Mc
ComuB as being defective, the grand
Jury today returned a new forgery
indictment, which is considered by the
district attorney to .be stronger In
substance than the former ones.
Howgate's trial win probably begin
about Dec. 20.

The Wife Murderer Getting Keudy for the
By the United Press.
Lebanon, Pa., Dec. 14. During the
trial of Charles Garrett, this afternoon,
for the murder of his wife, the prisoner
was placed on the stand. During his
examination he became very abusive
and the district attorney wanted him
handcuffed, but Judge Meily refused to
comply, directing that an officer stand
by his side.
When Garrett left the stand the ex
citement was so great that a number
of people rushed from the court room.

The Dominion Coal company has de

The Delaware and Hudson in the
month of November earned of 1 per

up to date, including estimates, It is
considered certain by the management
that the regular dividend will be more
than earned this year. (
The other night, near Montana, In
SchuylkHlcounty.the old Reno breaker,
familiarly known as the "Red Tavern,"
was destroyed by fire. It had not been
in use for a number of years and the
loss was slight to Its owners, the Mor
ris Ridge Coal company.
Superintendent Lawall, of the Le
high and WJlkes-Barre Coal company.
Superintendent Chase, of the Lehigh
Valley Coal company, and officials rep
resenting the Reading Coal and Iron
company all deny the report that re
striction for the remainder of Decem
ber would be ordered.
The fight against the Lehigh Valley
management is said by the Stockholder
to be the outgrowth of the personal an
tagonism of John N. Hutchinson, and
later of the hostility of Dick Bros. &
Co. The latter's motive has yet to be
developed; the former's dates back over
a long period of years, probably since
he retired as secretary and treasury of
A deal has been consummated whereby
the Crystal Oil company of Toledo has
been absorbed by the Sun Oil company
of Toledo and the Merrlam & Morgan

understood that the Paragon Refining
oompany and the Craig Oil company
will also go Into the combine, thus
making the strongest competitor the
Standard Oil company ever had.
A paragraph under a Pittsburg date
says the Impression there is that the
Vanderbllts are preparing to complete
the Beach Creek railway to Pittsburg.
That impression is not confirmed by In
quiries made in New York. The Beach
Creek railway Is controlled by the
West Shore system, and Is of very great
importance to It, not only as a feeder,
but as giving It an Independent control
of coal mines. The belief in New York
Is that the West Shore people do not
care to see the road extended to Pitts
burg. A reliable estimate of this year's pig
Iron production in the United States
shows that the output Is about 500,000
tons less than that of last year. This
year's prductlon will be about 6,600,000
tons. The Increase In production which
began In July last Is still manifest. The
production Dec. 1 was at the rate of
178,325 tons a week, or 9,300,000 tons a
year. It Is predicted by the American
Manufacturer In its issue of this week
that the production' next year will be
one of the largest in the history of the
Iron trade in the United States.
Saward's Coal Trade Journal says:
"The restriction agreed upon for the
month of December has been pretty
well adhered to during the first week,
but It Is yet rather early to claim that
this restriction has had any particular
effect upon the price list. At the next
meeting of the sales agents it would be
a good Idea for them to make a pro
gramme for January and February, at
least. Production should not be any
greater for each of these months than
the amount alloted for December. This
would give the opportunity for supply
ing all the demand which Is lltaly to
arise, and of getting rid of some of the
surplus coal on hand at the stocking
"It Is always within the province of
the shareholders to vote as they
please." This was the terse comment
made by Vice President Garrett upon
the movement to oust tho present man
agement of the Lehigh Valley railroad.
"The election on Jan. 15," he added,
"will determine to what extent they are
dissatisfied with the present regime.
Further than this lb ere Is nothing to
say." Another official said: "We are
going through a period of depression.
Few, if any, roads have earned their
expenses within thi past year, let alone
dividends. You can't get blood out of
a turnip. The management has been
careful and economical. That It has
not paid a dividend during the year is
because it iwas not earned."
