"That the said failure to pay the said
fees and file or present a receipt to obtain

that said primary Is In fact separate and

"That tne non-payment of said feea In
aald attempts at multiplying nominations

DETROIT, Mich., July 21.-A committee
of striking Grand Trunk trainmen and
members of the Detroit Federation of La
bor called on Mayor Brletmeyer today to
protest against the alleged arming of
strike-breakers by the railroad company.
The mayor satisfied the men that the law
would be enforced In this respect and re
ferred the matter to the commissioner of
police. The strikers assert that forty cars
of meat spoiled In transit was buried near
Sarnla today. f
MONTREAL. July 2L "Freight" contin
ued to be the slogan and the problem' in
the Grand Trunk railway strike today. .
The 6,000 striking conductors and train
men continued to be conspicuous by their
absence not only from their posts which
they left Monday night,' but from publlo
view anywhere. Their leaders, speaking
for them, reaffirmed that all are quietly
awaiting an expected time when the rail
road will find resumption of Its freight
business Impossible and will make such
wage overtures to the strikers aa will in
duce them to return.
At company headquarters, however, It
was stated that the strikers had been elim
inated from the situation. A blrdsey view
of the Grand Trunk's 4,000-mile system from
Portland, Me., to Detroit and In New Eng
land, showed a distinct improvement In
conditions, It was said. It was predicted
that many Important essentials toward re
sumption of shipping would be worked out
during the day.
From the viewpoint of many cities and
towna affected, the freight situation la in
creasingly serious. Ice companies are un
able to get Ice. The Canadian Pacific is
avoiding possible trouble by refusing to
run ice cars on Grand Trunk sidings, and
much perishable freight seems doomed to
destruction. At Stratford, Ont., 200 men
have been thrown out of work by the clos
ing down of packing and nulling companies
deprived of supplies. Owing to a shortage
of coal the electric light company hers baa
put out .street lights.
The Wabash railroad affected as to Its
section over Grand Trunk from Niagara
Falls, Ont., to Windsor, Ont., Is giving
nearly compute passenger service, but
there is no freight moving.
Reports have been received at company
headquarters here which indicate restless
ness on the part of strike sympathizers.
Statements that attempts were made dur
ing the night to intimidate Grand Trunk
crews at the Bonaventure yards led the
company to send out special police squads
early today, and strong detachments have
been sent to Richmond and Sherbrook.
Statements current last night that' the
engineers would strike In sympathy, which
for a time caused apprehension, were evi
dently based on telegrams from Chief Stone
of the Brotherhood of Locomotive En
gineers urging his men to remain neutral
and giving specific Instructions that no en
gineer act as pilot tor green conductors.
Beef Train for Portland.
BOSTON, July 21. With the passenger
service restored on practically every line
In New England the officials of the Grand

turned their attention to the moving of
freight tralna and the relieving of the con
gestion which the ttetip has caused.
One freight train of twenty cars loaded
with beef is on its way to Portland, where
the stopping of freight traffic threatened
a meat famine.

CHICAGO. July 2L-TJia Chicago ipollce
have dropped the Investigation Into the
death Of Ira G. Rawu, president of the
Chicago, Indianapolis A . Louisville rail
road (Monon route), and Herman Sohuett
ler. acting chief of police, said today that
he was satisfied that Mr. Rawn had com
mitted aulclde. Acting ohief Schuettler an
nounced his decision after a long confer
ence with the detectives who had
Investigated the Wlnnetka tragedy. They
declared ail the details pointed to suicide.
Despite the withdrawal of the Chicago
police, the private detectives employed by
the Rawn family continued their Invstl
gation and steadfastly declared that Mr.
Rawn was killed by a burglar.
Tho suicide thory is believed to have been
strengthened by the results of an Inves
tigation by Coronor, Hoffman.
Th bullet hole In Mr. Rawn's night gar
ment had been carefully examined and its
appearance leads to the suicide belief. The
hole Is surrounded by blood stains In which
there are what are believed to be powder
While the private dstectlves announced
yesterday that they expected to make an
arrest today, no one was taken into cus
tody. What the Police Say.
As a basis for their suicide theory the
police advance the following reasons:
They point to the fact that Mr. Rawn
was operating vice president of the Illi
nois Central railroad at the time fraudu
lent car repair contracts were found there,
and' that recently he has been drawn Into
the Illinois Central graft Investigation as
a chief witness. They say that the action
of Mr. Rawn's relatives In refusing to
aid the Chicago detective department to
search for the alleged murderer Is sus
picious. They declare that there exists a lack of
convincing evidence that an intruder had
actually been In the Rawn residence.
