the rase that when Simpson & Wat-
kins, an independent coal mining com- 2
pany. led a movement to build an in
dependent coal road to New York in
order to get their coal to market
cheaper, the six coal-carrying railroads
named formed a combination and pur
chased the Temple Iron Company,
which had a blanket oharter permit
ting it to mine or sell coal. The pres
idents of a majority of the anthracite
coal roads are directors of the com
pany which purchased the Interests of
Simpson a: Watklns and thereby killed
the new railroad project.
Avowed Purpose Disclosed.
Of this transaction. Judge Cray says:
"I cannot escape the conclusion that
the decree of this court should de.

If a decree for an injunction under the

Opposition Unionists. 193.
The fifth day of the election ended
with the parties still running neck and
neck, with the prospect that they will
come under the wire in almost pre
cisely the same relative position they
held at the start. Returns had been
received up to midnight from the vot
ing for 419 members, and the result Is
a Unionist gain of two seats in that
number over those held by that party
In the last Parliament.
This amazing result is as unprece
dented In English history as It Is em
barrassing to politicians of all fac
tions. Both parties went Into the elec
tion predicting great gains. Both are
now convinced that the new House of
Commons will be virtually identical
with the old.
Kffect of Verdict Debated.
- Discussion now Is concentrated upon
the question what the people's verdict
means: what course stall be followed
under such unexpected circumstances.
The Conservatives argue that Pre
mier Asqulth's bid for a sweeping In
dorsement from the country haa not
been obtained; therefore, he cannot be
justified In fastening upon the nation
such radical changea aa Home Rule and
the disarming of the House of Lords.
The Coalitionists Insist that the vo
ters, by returning them to power, in
dorse their policies and direct them to
carry out their programme In its en
tirety. Forty-four seats were balloted for to
day. Returns were received from 21
of these, and from 44 which were bal
loted for yesterday. In these 65. the
Liberals gained Radnorshire and Bed
ford, while the Unionists gained Esk
dale. The contests were close nearly
everywhere. The Unionists continue to
cut down the Liberal majority and to
make numerical gains all along the
line, but Insufficient to turn out the
Liberal members.
Churchill Attacked Personally.
Winston Bpencer Churchill. Home
Secretary, was returned by Dundee, but
about 1500 votes shifted to the Unionist
column, largely as the result of attacks
upon his personality.
Heavy rains tonight, coupled with a
delay In the reports, decreased the gen
eral enthusiasm.
Premier Asqulth. spesklng In East
Fife, was questioned on Home Rule. He
replied that he could not give details
regarding this measure at this stage.
John Redmond, speaking In Dublin,
"The election has already killed the
veto power of the Lords and the aboli
tion of the veto means the establish
ment of Home Rule."
In Belfast rioting followed the clos
ing of the polls. There was much stone
throwing and marly windows were
broken. Police quelled the trouble.-
