BALDWIN MAKES STATEMENT!
Tells glory of Trnnsaetloas Leaning
Is to Arrest of President
John N. Baldwin, general attorney of the
Union Pacific Railroad company, gives out
the following prepared atatement relative
to the arrest of Mr. Burt:
"The arrest of Mr. Burt was nothing more
or less thsn an act of maliciousness. There
was not the slightest warrant for It, and
the evidence In the case will show that It
la abaolutely foolish, without foundation,
and made simply for the purpose of keep
ing the public agitated with reference to
the atrlke difficulties. The charge that he
la guilty of depriving these men of their
liberties Is preposterous and absurd. Tbess
men were never deprived of their liberties
for one part of a second and President
Burt bad no more to do with the trans
action than the man In the moon.

August 24. eighteen men arrived over the
Illinois Central for . work In the Union
