The "strik ing" jury in the McDermott will case has won, and established a precedent in American legal pro cedure. When Judge Withrow asked the twelve men yesterday after noon for the seventh time, if they had signed a verdict for the de fendant as directedby him, they answered once again that their verdict was for the plaintiff. And Judge Withrow accepted their verdict. He admitted that he could do nothing else under the law. He said the jury was justified in refusing to obey his instructions. To a certain extent, Judge Withrow softened his submis sion to the stubborn jurors by stating that he would grant either side a. new trial on appeal. - But that did not alter the fact that he had recognized the right of the jury to refuse to' obey his instructions and accepted a ver dict contrary to those i...

The young woman who "did the two-step" with me remarked that she was "awfully glad" she didn't have to go to the dance halls for an evening's recreation. "A girl never knows what sort of a place she is going to until she gets on the floor," my fair part ner of the waltz exclaimed. "Why, here we girls all know its right, and there can't anybody be rude to us." That seemed to be the spirit pervading the school dance. The boys, most of them graduates of the school or young fellows who have moved into the neighbor hood, tried to maintain a standard of conduct far above that exhibit ed in the dance halls of this sec- tion. While not Chesterfield'an in manner, they acted as decent, re spectable chaps. I didn't see one of them grab a girl by the arm and yell: 'Come on the floor, kid!' A girl could refuse to dance with a young man without being insulted. One girl told me as the 9:30 bell gave the pianist I notice begin "...

E. Murray, Financial secre tary of the Burnside system fed eration, asked the delegates' to make an appropriation for the strikers, declaring that with slight financial aid the shopmen would be able to stay out against the road, and force it to ask a set tlement.

''- iSVB . - ' " IMPORTANCE OF SYSTEM FEDERATION When every trades unionist understands that he is in fact his brother's keeper, labor will come into its own. The principle at issue in the Illinois Central strike means to - every working man what it means to one of the striking shopmen. Capital is organizing and federating much more rapidly than labor, and organization -must be met by organization, federation by fed eration. N The I. C. is not acting alone in this matter. Every railroad in the country is interested. If the I. C wins this fight, some other road will make the same fight The tactics will be to defeat labor in detail. All the strength' of the combined railroads will be massed against the employes on one road. If the federated railroad bosses win on one road, they'll mass their strength on another. The shopmen on other roads than the I. C. are as vitally inter ested in the outcome of the present strike as the I. C. shopmen , themselves. Their turn ifiay come at any momen...
