will continue to do so is a question. From
oonespondence with Chicago members of the
KnlithLsot Liboi I am led to believe that tlie
question of the anarchists , who have been
sentenced to be hanged , will bo brought be
fore the convention bv a delegation fro u
that city. It will bo asked that the conven
tion Inquire Into the justness of the sen
tences. The anatchists w ill have plenty of

be advocated by men who are not dyna

An eftort will be made to get an expression
of sentiment In favor ot these men.

Dr.s MOIRES la. , Sept. 23. | Special Tele
gram to the Br.E.J The tight between the
rival street car lines took a new phase to-day.
Both companies had been granted the right
of way on Sixth street , but the old company ,
Ignoring the now. proceeded to lay Its track
down In the confer of the street. The track
of thn now company was torn up , when It
tried to parallel the other. Application was
at once made to the mayor , who issued an
order that the company should keep two and
one-half feet from the center of the street ,
but as the old company Ignored the order it
was evident that there would be a collision.
Shortly after noon the new company , with a
big force of brawny fellows , began laying
its track , ns the council had peimltteu.
Even thing betokvns a light as the old com-
] > my refused to budge , and It was evident
tint force would be rtviulrcd to move it. At
this juncture the sheri'r ' appealed vvltji a writ
of injunction from .luiluo Hendeison.
stopping both companies from laying any
track as stalled , and ordering the old com
pany to move its track to onti side as thu
mayoi had ordered. This pioduccd a cessa
tion of hostilities ami to-night both sides ate
resting on their arms' . The leial questions
involved are now belli ? argued in tint circuit

taKcn sick he had been poisoned.
AeeoidltiBly some of the water
contained iu his cell bucket was taken to the
hospital and kept then- tin examination. The
water was suspected , since It was the only
way In which the poison could bo coiuiuuni-

soni * of the wat'-r was taken to the labratorv

the motion fur a new trial for the seven con
demned anaiehlsts wcie Hied bj their attor
ney to-daj. The usual plea Is enteicd that
the verdict Is not supported by evidence , ami
It Is also urged that counsel foi the state cm-
plnjed a form of argument which was
calculated to prejudice the jttty. The
chief point urged , however , is the
story telegraphed fiom Indianapolis shortly
after the conclusion ot the trial , to the effect
that a man entered n drinking saloon In
that city one or two davs hoforo the llav nnr-
ket massacie and exhibited a satchel inti
mating that a slaiuhtei would occur In Chicago
cage in a few days. The theory of the de
fense Is that this mvstenoiis stranger hail a
quantltof dvn.imitc hmibs and lie Is the
person who in all likelihood threw the bomb
Into the midst of the police. The manner In
which the jury was summoned and before
whom the defendants weie tiled Is also ob
