Strikes Must Not Be Ordered
THE NORTHERN CUTTING WAGES
The Receivers Invoke the Aid of
the Courts to Prevent a
Milwaukee, Dec. 2C The receivers of
the Northern Pacific are preparing to:
a strike of all the employes. They .ap
plied some time ago to Judge Perkins
of the United States court, for an or
der restraining them from declaring an
Instantaneous strike and doing any
damage to the property and Interfering
with the operation of the road. The
receivers had ordered a general reduc
tion of wages from five to eight per
cent, to which the employes objected.
Negotiations between representatives of
the employes and the receivers have
been In progress three weeks. Today
the negotiations were broken off, and e
strike .being Imminent, the receivers
have decided to make use of the In
junction issued by Judge Perkins, which
they hope will enable them to operate
the- road immediately with new men.
The legal documents now in the handi
of the receivers contain neaily
10,000 words. The lnjunctional order
will be served tonight and torn -ii..v tn
all leaders of the Northern Pacific rail
road employes by United States mar-
shals of the districts through which
the Northern Pacific passes.
PREPARED TO QtTIT WORK..
Milwaukee, Dec. 25. The prospect Ie
that 3,500 men employed by the Nor
thern Pacific will quit work January 1
when the reduced schedule of wages
goes Into effect. When the receivers
found it Impossible to arrive at an
agreement with the employes, they tel
egraphed tonight to all agents and at
torneys along the line of road to have
injunctions served. The Injunction i:
said to be -the Urst order of the kind
issued in the United States. A some
what similar Injunction was issued dur
ing the Big Four labor troubles, but
not until the strike was In progress. It
appears from the Northern Pacific in
junction that the receivers ordered a
reduction in all salaries exceeding $1200
This was cheerfully accepted. A week
later the receivers ordered a further
reduction of five per cent on all wages
nf tr.H In 17K anil nn 7r. '
$100 per month. It is this reduction
which the employes refuse to accept.
The petitioners say the employes can
not carry on a strike without pecuniary
assistance of the different, national or
ganizations to which they belong. They
therefore pray that these organizations,
through their chief officers, such as P.
M. Arthur, E. C. Clark, E. P. Sargent
D. G. Ramsey, S. E. Wilkinson, and
ethers, be enjoined from ordering and
sanctioning the strike. The court
SOUTHERN PACIFIC'S EARNINGS.
San Francisco, Dec. 28. Judging from
the statement of the earnings of the
Southern Pacific railroad, the wave of
depression that swept over the country
appears to have done lees injury to the
Pacific coast than to any other sectior
of the United States. The gross earn
ings of the road up to the end of
October amounted to $10,137,000. This J
$2C1,000 less than for Uie tame time laitt
year. Although there will be a de
crease In the net earnings of the road
this year. It will be less than that ex
perienced by railroada in other section.

Mr. Pennoyer Politely Informed that
He Is Untruthful.
Portland, Or., Dec. 26. The Oregonlar
will tomorrow print an open, letter from
Richard H. Thornton, of the State Uni
versity Law School, to Governor Pen
noyer. Mr. Thornton Bays: "The ex
traordinary circumstance of fourChrlat
mas letters to the president of the
United States must be my excuse for
writing to you. You therein state that
more than two-thirds of the people of
Oregon are without employment, and
wore than one-third are without suffi
cient means of support. Consider for
a moment what this means. At least
240,000 people, according to your letter
have no employment; and at least 120,-
000 have no sufficient means of support.
In so writing you have stamped your
self as a disseminator of Inaccuracy
and llbellor of the commonwealth which
haa made you its chief magistrate. You
also are a father, and you doubtless feel
grateful to the Supreme Being for thh
and that. Allow me to suggest that you
enlarge . your scope nf vision and see
what a bad example In point of verac
ity you are setting your offspring."
V. A BATTLE PROMISED. .
The Nlctheroy Said to be Waiting for

Pernambuco, Dec. 26. The Brazilian
dynamite cruiser Nlctheroy, which put
to sea yesterday for the purpose, It is
said, of engaging In battle with the
rebel war ship Republica and Aqutd
aban, returned Ajere this morning, re
porting that shl, had been unable to
find the rebel ships. It is now said
the Nlctheroy will await the jcoming of
the- rebel ships here, and will fight
them in these waters. News from Rio
de Janeiro brings little that Is fresh.
Both sides cldim their opponents are
driven to the, last extremity, and must
soon give In. "The government party
declares that foreign governments are
supporting Mello, but that as soon as
the United States gets a strong naval
force hero that will be stopped, because
the United States must compel a strict
observance of the Monroe doctrine, and
that If this Is done, the collapse of the
rebellion Is only a matter of a short

JUDGE FULLERTON'S DECISION
Irregularities in tlio pjpeceu'ings
Alleged by those Moil;
Iuterestcd. Associated Press.
Corvallls, Or., Dec. 25. Special trains
this morning brought about 400 of the
Oregon Pacific's creditors to town to
witness the court proceedings relative
to the confirmation of the sale of the
road. They divided on the question of
the appointment of a successor to Re
ceiver Hadley. The matter comes up
In court this afternoon. The failure of
the proof of publication of the no' l-e cf
sale in the New York papers to arrive
here until yesterday renders the con
firmation of the sale Impossible for live
days, should 'the court be so Inclined.
The attorneys for the purchasers stat
ed In court that the refusal to confirm
the sale would end the matter so far as
the people they represented were con
cerned. . . '
Judge Fullerton this afternoon set
aside the sale of the property made on
the 15th Inst. Objections to the confir
mation were made by various creditors
en the grounds of Inadequacy of the
price, and Irregularity deprocedure. In
rendering -his decision, which meets
with general approval, Judge Fullerton
said that those most Interested In the
confirmation . or rejection of the sale
were labor and supply creditors, and
that they seemed toQpp.oset.tha confir
mation. Also, that there appeared , tt
have been some irregularities In the
proceedings. In the morning will be
heard the argument for the removal of
Receiver Hadley and the appointment
of hla successor, a petition forwhich
has been circulated among the em
ployes. The latter propose that until
such time as a sale of the property may
be effected, to operate the road, guaran
teeing not to entail additional expense
upon the receivership. t

of about $37,000,000.
