Ohicago, Nov. 18. Zero weather here
is tne record today and such a condi
tion haa largely interfered with the
usual crowds of strikers and their sym
pathizers, although thia afternoon
throngB are gathering.
The railway company, despite its
half promised intention of arbitrating
made late yesterday to Mayor Harrison,
is attempting to break the strike by
every mans available. Early this morn-'
ing officials of the company asked the
mayor to send 500 policemen to points
along the Indiana avenue electric line,
as an attempt would be made to open
that thoroughfare to traffic. The mayor
responded by sending 100 officers to the
A car was started on the Indiana ave
nue line at 8 o'clock, with a dozen po
1 icemen aboard. Its running waa not
interfered with, owing to the absence
of a crowd, which waa probably due to
the frigid weather.
' On the Wentworth avenue line three
cars were run under difficulty, as the
non-union men were afraid to proceed
because of the scarcity of the police.
Thia afternoon there was an attempt
to move three cars over the Indiana ave
nue line, but ueither one had cone a
quarter of a mile before they were
blocked by trucks driven by sympathiz
ing teamsters. The police seem to have
grown apathetic, owing to the nerve of
the company in demanding unusual
protection . Three teamsters were ar
rested at 1 o'clock.
As the day progressed great crowds
began to gather along Indiana avenue,
and at one point showers of stones were
thrown at a passing car. Then the trol
ley wires were cut, and all traffic ceased
Repair crews were sent out under heavy
protcstion, but so soon as a repair would
be accomplished at one point the wires
wonld be cut at another. At 3 o clock
the company decided to give up the at
tempt to operate this line.
Mayor Harrison was in consultation
with Governor ates this afternoon,
and it was decided to call a conference
of the railway officials and the alder
manic peace board this evening. At the
meeting the strike leaders will be pre

At 3 o'clock this af'prnoon three wo
men attacked a non-union motorman
who had left his car near the Wentworth
avenue barn. Tbev clnbbed the man .and
It waa with difficulty that be was rescued
irom the hands ot the assailants.
As matters stand this afternoon, those
in a position to know, say that by to
morrow the crisis must come, as the
power houses are almost out of fuel, and
that the employment of non-union
teamsters to haul coat will result in
The follo-ving story is taken from the
Evening Telegram of Tuesday. The
Ma rgarite Fisher Company is filling a
week's engagement at Shively's opera
house, and will close tomorrow evening.
The Telegram story of the pirated play
"Tennessee's Partner," which was the
offering at Cordray'a last week, has been
pirated by a Chicago manuscript house
and sold to the Margarita Fisher com
pany, now playing Oregon towns, under
the name of "A Southern Girl." Mana
ger Aiston, who owns "Tennessee's
Partner," went to Oregon City yesterday
where he met Manager C. C. Kyle, of
the Margarita Fisher company, and
demanded an explanation. An under,
standing was arrived at between the
theatrical men , and no lawsuit whl re
sult, although when he left Portland
awton was considering such a step It
appears that the Fisher people were
made the vtctims of the Chicago con
cern, just as was the Weid'man com
pany a lew mouths ago, which also
bought "Tennessee's Partner" and
played it in Eastern Oregon under the
uaiuoui in uregon.

months ago Manager Aieton discovered
that the Weidem.au company had played
the piece in Baker City under the title of
"In Oregon." Aiston wrote to the
manager, and the latter explained that
be had bought the play from a Chicago
piay oroaer in good laith, not knowiug
mat it waa "Tennessee's Partner."
Manager Weideman explained, further.
that as soon as he learned that "In Ore

of "Tennessee's Partner." he canceled
It from his repertoire and sent it back to

Alston, as the result of correBDondence

by weideman securing the play from
the owner, paying Aiston $100 for the
privilege of producing "Tennessee's Part

While playing at Cordrav'a Theatre
at Albany two weeka ago, the Margarita
rlsher Company produced a "A South
ern Girl." This was nothing else than
a garbled version of "Tit n usee's Part
ner," such as "In Oregou" had been,
and it also had coma from the shop of
the Chicago play pirate. A few days
after the Albany engagement, members
of the Fisher company attended a per
formance of "Tennessee's Partner" at
Cordray'a in thia city, and immediately
recognized the resemblance between "A
Southern Girl," which they had put on,
and the show at Coraray's. Following
this came the discovery bv Manager
Weideman, and he informed the owner,

Salem, Or., Nov. 18. The holding of
a special session of the Legislatnre ie still
one oLtheuncertainties,so far as Govern
or Chamberlain's determination is con
cerned. The Governor returned today
from a three days' visit i to Portland,
and thia evening he went through the(
mail that haa arrived during his ab
sence. He finds that out of 60 members of the
House of Representatives, 43 have re
sponded to his letter of inquiry regard
ing their opinion of the need of a special
seasion and their attitude toward legisla
tion. Of these 43 Representatives, 21
have given unqualified assurance that
they will oppose all legislation other
than that correcting the tax law, and 10
have given aqualined assurance favoring
a short session and no other legislation,
but expressing a readiness t J take up
other legislation If it be of great import
ance. The . other 12 Representatives
heard from give no assurance as to their
course regarding other legislation. There
are 17 uepresentauves to be heard tram.
Uut ot 3D Senators, 16 have respond-
ed. OI these nine have given unqualifi
ed assurances, two have given assurance
with the proviso that other urgent mat
ters may be attended to, three have
merely advocated a short session, and
two havefiiven no assurance whatever.
There are 14 Senators to be heard from.
r will be seen from this, that i.1 mem
bers of the Legislature have given un
qualified assurance that they will op
pose all other legislation than that cor
recting tte tax law, 11 have given , e
qualified assurance, and three merely ex
preseel the desire that tbe session be
No, I have not decided to call a spe
cial session," said Governor Chamber
lain tonight. "I have decided that I
wou't call it unless I get the assurance I
have asked for that there iwill be no
other legislation than that correcting the
tax law. That is all there is about that.
I am in earnest in thia matter, and
those who thiuk I am not, are mistak
en. "Opinion regarding a special sesslqn
is ot all on one side, by any means. A
great many lettera have been received,
and many people have called upon me,
urging that no special session be called.
I etand right where I did at first, and
will not call a session unless I get the as
suance for which I have asked."
Governor Chamberlain hat already
said he does not ask an absolute pledge
from the legislators not to take up other
legislation under any circumtantces,
He has said that ha expects them to
dispose of the vetoes held over from the
last regular session, aa the constitution
requires, and also expects that in case a
serious emergency should arise they will
give it their attention. The qualified
assurances he has received are various
ly expressed, and no one but the Govern
or himself knows how that miscellaneous
legislation will not he taken up. The
members opposing other leglsktinn, or
opposing all except very important legis
lation, number 42, which is only lour
less than a majority, It is generall)
believed that Irom the 31 members yet
to be heard from there will be received
assurances enough to' satisfy the Govern
or that no other legislation than tax law
to be taken up The belief that these
assurances will he received has made
many people confldeiit that a special ses
sion will be held. There is one thing
of which all are satiaQad that the Gov
ernor will not recede from the position
he has taken.

at that time braking on a special
freight train which left the rails near
the town of Oswego. Hartigau jumped!
and sustained a compound fracture of.
both bones io the right leg which ren
dered an amputation necessary.
In his suit for damages he aiiegss thar
the roadbed of the West Side riuoad is

it wa9 this condition that was responsi
ble for the wreck. Hartigau alleges-'
that he has tnen a cripple as the result .
of the accident ever since and that lift
is unable to do any kind of work.
The railroad company, as defendant in
the case, claims that Hartigau is an ex
perienced railroad man and that d ring
the time of his Bervice with the com
pany he was aware of the condition of ,
the roadbed, that he accepted employ
ment with the company knowing the
conditions ot the roadaed, and assu.ned

him with contributory negligence be- '
