THELU KUMBEES AUGMENTED.
Thousands of Men Inaugurate the Threat
ened Strikes in Chicago.
Chicago, 111., Way 2. The threatened
Btrikes in this city which may be said to
nave beguu on yesterday wlien organizeu
labor took its holiday, were made this
morning when the men failed to resume
work at many shops. The Black road in
the -vicinity of the McCormick reaper
works had much the same appearance tins
mc ruing as it had four years ago today.
None but strikers could be seen and they
had entire possession. Every man, boy
and girl employed in the malleable iron
works, corner Twenty-sixth and Rockwell
streets, is out. The total number of em
ployes is 1,200. At the great Mc
Cormick reaperworks about fifty moulders
went out, but work was progressing
ns usual. One hundred and fifty men in
the foundries of Barnum & Richardson and
a like number in that of the Ajax Forgo
company went out and these concerns are
closed. At the Chicago Car Wheel foun
dry and the Wells and French car shops,
every one of the 1,000 eniplojes went out
and the shops were closed. At Zebcer's it
was said that the men seemed anxious for
either a strike or a vacation, so the works
has been shut down till Monday next, to
accommodate them and to make repairs.
Over one hundred men are idle here.
Nearly all the molders at the Chicago Car
Wheel company's foundry are out.
The demands of the men in all the strikes
mentioned above were not made known to
the employers. The men struck without
notifying the employers or making any
demands on them. Their object, however,
is to atttain the eight hour dayv The en
tiro number of employes of the'X. K. Fair
bank company about 50 will go out Mon
day. The cooper, numbering thirty struck,
his morning. They want eight hours
work, and nino hours' pay. The coopers
are earnest in their demand for eight
hours and in all portions of the city the
men aro quitting work on a refusal of the
employers to surrender. From three to four
thousand sash, door and blind men walked
out of the various factories in the south
west lumber districts this morning. The
action was apparently without warning.
A rumor that the pinning null men
would quit tomorrow morning is" not
traced to anv reliable source. It was also
said that all wood workers in whatever
in whrtever brnnce of the business were
restless and might ;joiu in the strike at ady
moment. Everything remains quiet, not
withstanding the large number of men
idle and the police say they do not antici
pate any disturbance. Four hundred men
in Deman & Hurka's furniture factory
struck for eight hours this morning and 100
employes of the Chicago Cottage factory
did the samo for a like cause. Several
thousand lumber shovers in tho lumber
district along the Black road aro dissatis

The board of arbitration chosen to settle
the difference lictweeu the striking carpen
ters and the new bosses' association has
been in secret session all day, and it is un
derstood they have made satisfactory
progress. It wjis announced late this
afternoon that eight hours as a day's work
had been agreed on. At the first sesMon
today the letter from the old bosses' jlsso
. 'at ion was read. It claimed that the asso
ciation employed a majority of the carpen
ters of the city and that 110 effective settle
ment can be made without tho assent of
its secretary. It further says the mem
bers of the association aro ready to con
code the eight hours mid to treat with
t"ieir men as to wages and they
devhneto submit to arbitration or tho
proposition to recognize the union to tho
extent of preventing themselves from
1 inng or discharging whatever men they
maj choose to employ or discharge.
Chicago "Workmen of all Trades Quit
Chicago, 111., May 2. The signal was
chen thU morning and the iron moulders
in most of the large manufacturing estab
lishments went out on a strike this" morn
ing at 7 o'clock or rather they declined to
go t v ork at the old rates. They nunilwr
nbout .Vkt and were employed in the Malle
able iron works, the McCormick harvest
ing machine works, tho establishment of
Bowen c Richardson and Grilling iron
foundry. Unless their demands arc
granted it is probable that the strike will
c.pruul to tho otheremplovees of these con
cc rns, who employ all told alout 5000 men.
At the McCormick works the moulders
l.avo placed pickets prevent the euiphn
nunt of non-union men. The llli
m is Steel company granted 200 of
their molded the eight hour day and a
strike was aoided. The molders employ
ed at the Deenm: reaperworks and h num
ber of machinists struck this morning.
The Fairbank Canning company has refus
ed the demands of theaOO employes for the
eight hour day and a strike will "be inaug
urated Monday. Eighty coopers struck
this morning. Ten thousand employes in
the sash, door and blind factories, planing
mills and other sucu lines of business went
on a strike this morning forthe eight hour
work day. There are about 25,00 of them all
told in the city and it is understood
that the remaining 15,000 will strike before
night unless their demands are comphed
with. All the hands employed at tho C.
J. Myer company, manulacturers of sash,
doors and blinds struck this morning.
They number 400. The varus of the firm
are at tho north pier. The men demand
nine hours' work and nine hours' jmy a a
substitute for tho tea hour system. The
firm dechned to accede and offered eight
hours. This the men refused.
It was reported this morning that all the
employes at the sasn and blind factory of
Palmer & Fuller had struck this
morning. Palmer & Fuller employ
600 men. Their demands are mhut
Jar to those of tho employes of
the Meyer & Sons compauv. It is also said
that 300 men at II inley & ' Weass' factory
had gone on a strike. The strike of this
morning covers the southwest division, of
the city and the mills on the north pier.
The demand is for eight hours work and
eight hours pay. The move was decided
upon last night and around all the plan
ing mills this morning were collected idle
knots of men. In most instances the men
quit work without notifying their employ
ers. Among all the planing mills there
was but one where the men were at work
this morning and that was at Bennet's.
Trouble is feared at many of the establish
ments. Before night the strikers claim
every employe in the the city will strike.
The planing mill men number all the way
from 2i,W0 to 30,000 men.

BOSTON CARPENTERS' STRIKE.
Boston, Mass., May 2. The strike of the

orderly manner. Thursday there were 102
shops and jobs visited by union pickets,
principally those of members of the Car

lorty-seven men were at work at three
places. Twenty-eight of these men left

committee having under consideration the
differences between the journeymen car
penters and the Builders and Traders' as

Bosses' association and the manner in
which the old Bosses' association shall be
treated by tho union men in case the strike
is declared off.
RRICKLAYERS TAKE ACTION.
Philadelphia, Pa., May 2. There was
rejoicing among the carpenters at the
strike headquarters this morning when it
was announced that the bricklayers had
come to the aid of the striking carpenters
by ordering that no bricklayers should
work upon "scab" frames. In other words,
that they should refuse to set window and
door frames for bosses who refused to
grant the increase of the carpenters' wages
to 35 cents an hour.

A RIOT IN TOURCOING.
PAP.IS, May 2. A dispatch from Tourco
iug, an extensive manufacturing town in
the Department du I'Jord states that seri
ous trouble has broken out there. Tho
hands employed in twenty-six mills went
out out on a strike this morning and great
crowds of men gathered about tho streets
to discuss the situation. The crowd was
augmented by 5,000 strikers from Boubax,
another manufacturing town a short dis
tance from Tourcoing, who marched en
masse into the latter place and soon all
hands began to show an ugly feeling which
culminated in a serious rioting which was
in progress at noon, the time the dispatch
was sent. Military reinforcements have
been summoned to aid the authorities in
Toukcoing, May 2.-8:30 p. m. Twenty
thousand strikers are parading the streets,
committing many excesses. The cavalry
disperses all groups. Twenty persons
have been arrested.

An Ungrateful Egyptian.
Tho firt wounded man I attended to was
an Egyptian, whose moans were piteous, and
on examination I found him severely wounded
in tho belly. I poured some eau de cologne
down his throat aud used ray own surgical
bandage to bind up his wound so as to keep
the flies from it. Then I lit a cigarette, put
it in his mouth, placed more beside him, and
gave him a drink of water. lie kissed my
hand and muttered something about "Allah."
I had not left him far when I heard tho crack
of a rifle and a bullet whizzed by my ear.
Looking round, I saw the smoko of the shot
drifting away from where my wounded man
lay, aud noticed that he was quietly taking
aim at me agam.
Ho had time to fire a second shot, which
also missed mo, before I reached him, and I
had no compunction in driving tho life out of
him with my bayonet, remarking to myself
as I took the weapon out of him for tho last
time, "You won't come that game any more,
.you ungrateful brute!'' Many such iustancea
of this treacherous hate occurred. I myself
had to wipe out four more wounded Egyp
tians whom I caught in tho act of firing at
our men after they had passed. To run the
bayonet into a man who is down one feels to
be hardly tho thing, and it was done reluct
antly; but in such cases as I havo described
it was a clear act of compulsory duty.

Tho contrast between the rose leaf fairness
