chargu of violating the feduial laws regard
ing this tiansportalion of high explosives
'ihu men wciu airalgned In Ihe same couit
room where the famous b icolt case
of the Hurllngton eompiny against
the Wabash for rufusing to
accept "Q" freight was decided by Judge
Gieshiun. Thu loom was crowded with
business and railroad men , p irtieiilarly Ihe
laller class. The most intense interest was
manifested In the proceedings and sensa
tional developments for Iho brolheihood men
vvero not lacking Not the least notable of
Ihcso incidents was thu action of the
"squeuloi , " Aleck Smith , in loftising tone
ccpt the services of Iho brothci hood's coun
sel. Smith was separated from the others
before the couit opened , having sat with
them only n moment Attorney Donahue
then at the very oulsct demanded that Smith
Hit with Iho other men. Mi Donahue do
elaied himself Smith's attorney , retained hi
S'lilth's hi other , and askol yyltj ho should
not bo permitted to consult with him
After much pulleying the couit asked
Smith Himself to stum ! up mid say whether
hu desired to rceopt the sarvices of llio
biolhuihood and nit with his foimcr com
rndcH When the bitin Iho court was
hushed , Alex Smith stood up and

Hofoio the conclusion of all tlio damaging

to those in the loom Ihat thu ease
