In tho absence of jojr proclamation,
your telegram to Secietary Pearson,

"Illinois eiuarantined against Pcnnsvl
vania cattlo on aecotint of foot and

Whllo you may not intend to totally o

you do neveitheless place an obstacle In

"No cattle, sheep or other luminants,

practically nono aro shipped and tho In

by a distance of over two bundled miles
to tho territory actually Infected, and be

to seo why j on should ibsuo any auarnu

tho Injury which our proclamation to

Miners Promise to Have Their Dlr

Discussion Concerning Boycotting1
Between Commissioner Giay and
Rev. rather O'Donnell, of Oly
phant J. L. Crawfoid, -President
of the People's Coal Company, Whs
Called to the Stand Yesterday by
the Mineis Witnesses Told of!
Conditions in the Mines of A. Par
dee at Hnzletou.
It now begins to look as if the mini
stilko commission would be able to con
clude' the taking ot testimony In three
weeks, not taking Into account tho
Chiistinas icccss.
Attorney Clarence Daiinvv, of counsel
for the mineis, said esteida, to the
commission, that his side would in all
piobablllty llni-di its piesentation of dl
leet testimony this week. D. J. Mc
Caithy, another of tho mineis' attoi
noyp, said nttet winds, that his side was
about ready to cpilt at any time, now
that the comtnissionoi will indicate
they have hail enough ot such Informa
tion as the mineis aie piesentlng.
One of the most prominent of the op
eiatois' attorneys said his side would
likely take not more than two weeks In
the piesentation of testimony. This in
cludes allowance for a liberal ctoss-ex-amlnatlon.
"We feel," said he, "that tho minetss
have not made out such a case as re
quires any considerable amount of oral
testimony from our side. The main
questions at issue are wages and hours
of employment. Our statistics will
speak for us on these subjects, both
volumnioi.sly and etiaueniiju. Some
oral testimony will be required from the
companies paying by the car or meas
urement to show the inexpediency and
impiactlcabillty ol paying by weight,
and explanations will have to be made
of why a miner is required to mine
L',800 pounds for a ton, and why, under
the existing working agreements, ' a
miner has no legal or equitable claim
for compensation for washery product
and other small sizes. He might go
into details about the union's responsi
bility for strike violence, but recogni
tion of the union is not before the com
mission, and, at all events, the cont
missioneis havo inducted, immcasurc
ablv, that strike violence to their mind
has little beuuing on the case in hand "
About Boycotting.
An inteiesting colloquy took place at
tho afternoon sc-sion between Judge
Giay and Rev. Father O'Dotinoll, ot
Olyphant, on tho matter of bojeottitiR.
Rev. Father O'Donnell concluded ills
testimony on eio-,s-oxiiminaUon by an
admission that he Knew of a case ot a
hoi el keeper in his parish being com
pelled to go out of business because of
a boveott plated on hliu by tlio miners.
"You don't nppioio of boj col ting, ilo
yiiu, lAUhci?" said Judge Giay.
"I would differentiate," said tho wit
ness. "I would favor boycotting of bad
lltoiatuie or imnioial pluv houses."
"Yes, yes," said Judge Gia.
"If I belonged to an otganlz.ltlon,''
continued the witno-s, "and 1 folt it
was to my Interests or to tho Inteiests
of my oig.inization to lofinlu fiom put
nmUIng soiiio tnoi chant, I would loci
justified In doing to "
"Of ouuo, I ague with vou so fat,"
sulci tho Judge, "v temperance society,
fin instance, has for Its primal pin po-o
tho ln) cutting of snlcinns, and no ono
will accuse a toiupoiauce society of
being an tvir institution. Hut. Kuthei,
how much further would you go.1"
"I would udviso niy friends not to
pationi.e that nici chant," said the wlt-
"Just so," said tho judge, "hut you
would not bojeott mo if I trliised to
bojeott the moicluint, would jiiu'.'"
"Oh, no, X would not," answeied the
"That's wheie 1 diaw the Hue," the
commissioner lelolned.
Nothing that the hearing evoked was
listened to with moie intense inteiet
than this exposition of the legal and
uuiml view of the boycott.
Mr. Dm tow, by declaratory "Inten li
gations," inttodticed the Boston ten
patty and the refusal of colonial women
tn wear BUtlsh goods In the i evolu
tionary period as Instances of boycot
ting which no one In lheo paits and
