- Sir: I forward herewith the report of Mr.
Morrison, the I'nlted Stales attorney nt
Chicago. Knowing that one of the counsel
for the defendants In the Indictment against
the beef packers ha given a sum of money
10 s reporter of the Chicago Inter Ocean
.-ngaged In reporting the proceedings In that
r(is, and unsuccessfully attempted to give
.1 sum of money to another reporter of the
City Press association of Chicago, who de
clined to receive It. In view of the fact that
ihe articles of the reporter or the Inter
ocean have been misleading, contain many
false statements of fact and have been cir
culated widely throughout the country, I
deem It proper to bring tbe subject to your
attentlotf, tinder the statute which rigidly
restricts the power of the federal courts to
Runlsh for contempt of court there seem to
a no remedy. I am advised by that dla
trlct attorney that proceeding for disbar
ment of the offending attorney would not be
likelv to prevail In the federal courts.
I await your Instructions with reference
to the si.htoct If you have any to give. Very
respectfully. WILLIAM If. MOODY.

waa accorded an exceedingly gracious re

although- he was opposing a strong com
mittee that of appropriations. Mr. Ken
nedy made himself felt by his eurnestness
and by his thorough knowledge of the sub
ject. He had hardly gotten well started
on his presentation of the reason why
tho committee amendment should be In
creased when notice from the chair was
given that hi time had expired.
Mr. Sullivan of Massachusetts secured
the floor Rnd, appreciating how futilo It
was for Mr. Kennedy to ask for an ex
tension of time to debate his amendment,
whispered across the aisle:
"Ask mo questions," and in reply to
these questions Mr. Kennedy was able tu
conclude hiu speech.
The debate brought out the strong men
of the appropriations committee, Tawney,
chairman; Llttaucr, in charge of the bill,
and Wadsworth, chairman of the agricul
tural committee, all In opposition to tho
amendments as offered by Kennedy and
Pollard. They hud the assistance, how

Scotleld, Shurmer & Teugle was for years
able to sell Its oils in competition with

This was because of the fact that many
dealers would not buy of the Standard
company at nny price, us they considered
It a monopoly and ucd .vmfulr methods in

A , sweeping antl-unlon injunction was
signed by Judge William G. Sear of the
district court of Douglaa county yester
day afternoon. It waa sued out by the
Omaha printing concerns, whose men have
been on a strike since October 6, last, when
the contract between the union and the
employing printers expired and the union
men were locked out of the Job offices.
The coatroversy Is chiefly over the eight
hour duy. At the St. Louis session of the
International Typographical L'nlon two
years ago, it was resolved that the Job
printer of Ihe Cnited State go to the
eight-hour day on January 1. 1!. The
newspaper printers have had the shorter
workday lor many years. Tho National
Typothctae resolved to resist the demand,
and to go to the open shop basis on Janu
ary 1, 1906. In Omaha thu contract ex
pired In October, and the local member
of tho typothetae then refused to make any
contract with the printers, but declared
hereafter they would adhere to the open
shop plan, and would work nine hours or
more a day.
