Chicago Carpenters Call Upon Englishmen
Chicago, 111., May 5. According to the
predictions of the Htockyard coopers, who
are now on a strike, there is a probability
of their cause being taken up by the
Jnglish dock laborers and tho strike be
coming international. At a meeting of
the Brotherhood of United Labor.held this
morning, a committee was appointed to
communicate with John Burns, the Eng
lihh leader, and to request him to order
the English longshoremen not to handle
any of the beef or other product shipped
there by the Chicago packing houses.
Tho committee wiy that Burns has
taken great interest in the cause
of the men at the yards and
that for the past few weeks they have re
ceived letters from him in which he ex
pressed tho hope of visiting the United
Mates this summer and investigating the
CAN'T WORK ANYHOW.
CHICAGO, 111., May 5. The striking car
penters read in tho afternoon papers of
Saturday and the morning papers of Sun
day that the arbitration committee had
come to an agreement and that work
was to be resumed for the new association
today. Without waiting for orders from
the strikers' headquarters, many of them
went to work this morning. "When this
fact was reported at tho headquarters,
runners were sent out to pull them off.
Secretary Howard, of the Carpenters'
council, says the men will not be allowed
to resume work till every point of differ
ence between tho men and the bosses have
been fully bettled, and this will, in all
probability, not be accomplished before
Thursday or Friday. Tho carpenters at
the stock yards had resolved to go on a
strike this morning, but evidently thought
better of it as they went to work as usual.
About three-fourths of the strikers of
the planing mills, box factories and sash,
door and blind factories have given in to
the terms of the bosses, the ten hour day,
and are at work. It is understood the re
mainder will go back to work tomorrow.

THE CRONIN OBSEQUIES.
Chicago, 111., May 5. All that is mortal
of Dr. Patrick Henry Cronin, who a year
ago Saturday night was lured to the den
oi death in the Carlson cottage, was yes
terday laid to rest in a grave on the cold
and desolate beach front of Calvary ceme
tery. Over 1,000 men and women who had
known him in life braved the bleak wind
and pelting rain to witness the final
obsequies. The Sheridan Guards acted
as guards or Honor ana tne Illi
nois Drum corps, with muffled
drums, the Ancient Order of Hibernians
in their green regalia and the Catholic For
est ere turned out to a large number.
When the casket had been placed on the
edce of the grave, tho brief offices for the
interment of the dead were read by Father
Muldoon, chancellor of tho discese, and
after it bad been sprinkled with holy
water, it was lowered into the tomb. Then
the members of the ladies' committee
began to strew flowers upon the coffin
lid and, before the two wagon loads
which they had brought with them had
been exhausted, the grave was filled to the
brim. The drum corps beat a tattoo as
the heavy stone was rolled over the tomb,
and sealed and cemented; the office for
commitment was read by the priest and
tho ceremony was at an end. It is intended
to erect a monument over the grave at a
cost of not less than 5,000, and also to
beautify the surroundings until tho pres
ent waste is converted into a garden.
THE CLANGOR OF AN ALARM BELL
Close by, in the stillness of the night,
could scarcely startlo the ordinary indi
vidual more than do triflng noises the
nervous invalid. But once the nerves are
braced and the system invigorated with
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, this abnormal
sensitiveness is succeeded by a tranquility
not to be disturbed by trivial causes. Im
paired digestion is a fertile cause of nerve
weakness and unnatural mental gloom,
and a vigorous renewal of the action of
the stomack is one of the surest means of
invigorating and quieting the nerves. In
somnia, or sleeplessness, a form of nervous
disease, is unquestionably benefitted by se
datives, when it is prolonged or of frequent
occurrence, but its permanent removal is
more effectually achieved with the Bitters.
This medicine is also signally efficacious
for malaria, rheumatism, constipation,
liver complaint and torpidity of the kid
neys and badder.

BEN THOMPSON OF TEXAS.
Polite and Courteous, Tet the Slayer
Forty Odd Men.
All over Texas Ben Thompson's note was
negotiable paper, and no man who ever pre
sented him with a bill was treated with any
thing but polite business courtesy.
I was introduced to Thompson at Austin,
Tex., and the meeting was not in a saloon, a
gambling hous, not even a hotel. The place
was a quiet, orderly ice cream parlor, and
Ben Thompson and his wife were eating
strawberry cream at a table near by to a co
terie of high school girls, one of them being a
daughter of ex-Governor Ireland, of Texas.
Thompson was a small sized man, yet not
slender. Ho was elegantly, yet not showily
dressed; his clothes indicated a correct taste,
a diamond stud and a thread of gold watch
chain comprising all his personal jewelry. He
was a handsome man of 45, with small, black
mustache and hazel eyes.
Yet this man had a record of having killed
thirteen white men and twice that number of
Mexicans and Indians. A few months later
he was himself killed in San Antonio, along
with Kingfisher, in a hand-to-hand conflict
with two other men iu the Vaudeville theatre.
He was never known to take an unfair ad
vantage of an enemy, a number of his victims
having had the first shot at him. Onco in a
store ho ordered a man with whom ho was en
gaged in a lively dispute to go outside and
pass around the block to the right; he would
pass around to the left, and meet him. They
did 60, the man blazed away at Thompson
with a shotgun loaded with buckshot, missed,
went into tho air at tho crack of Ben's re
volver, and fell a corpse.
And thustvith every case of Thompson's
numerous killings, the preliminaries were al
ways flavored with a dash of dramatic sen
sationalism. As Thompson and his wife passed out of the
ice cream bazaar I noticed that hhe had but
one arm. Tbo other had been shattered by a
Winchester ball in Denver, when she threw
it across Ben's head upon discovering a crouch
ing form drawing a bead on him. At tho
time of his death Thompson was city marshal
of Austin. St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Electric Wght from. Gas.
A highly interesting fact has been brought
out by Mr. O. Ttrrill, of New York, in some
practical tests in producing electric light by
using illuminating gas for driving a gas en
gine and a Perret dynamo. Naturally one
would suppose that tho loss due to tho double
transformation of energy in producing the
electric light from illuminating gas by this
means would place the cost of tho electric
light far above that of gas. On the contrary,
however, Mr. Tirrill has found to his surprise
that a given amount of gas will produce far
greater illuminating effects wheu used to
drive the dynamo than when burned direct.
The gasoline gas is p-oduced by his machine
for SI per 1,000 feet. The engine, it Is found,
consumes four feet of this gas per -ixteen can
dle power lamp per hour when driving the
dynaino under full load, making the cct per
lamp two-fifths of a cent per hour, to that
the luxury of the electric light by this mean,
instead of being exponsivo, he finds in reality
to be a great economy. Mr. Tirriil explains
the phenomenon by the fact that his gasoline
gas contains SO per cent, of air when deliv
ered at the explosion chamber of the eugine,
and he gets the benefit of the expansion of
tais large volume of air by the heat of thf
explosion. Philadelphia Record.

restricted area than at present. The south
ern states were largely under water, and
Florida was but a shoal beneath the waves.
In tho immediate vicinity of Charleston, S.
C, from the bottom of the river bed have
been taken the remains of some sharks so Bug
gestivo of gigantic size that tho modern man
eater 13 dwarfed in comparison. The remains
consist of teeth, huge deviated specimens, in
jome instances almost as large as a woman's
band, many times larger than those found in
large sharks of today. The writer onco had
the curiosity to arrange a number of these
teeth after the model of a modern shark, aud
tho result gavo a fish largo enough to swallow
ahorseentire; and as for length, 125 feet must
have been the dimensions of these monsters.
If a shark fourteen feet long is sufficient at
the present day to terrify any one, what must
have been the effect of tho appearance of this
tertiary giant? Like tbo groat whales, it re
quired deep water to float it, and doubtless
was only attacked when by accident it be-
3ame stranded on the shoals.

At such a time the fishermen may have put
tff in their rude crafts and aided in its cap
tore perhaps fastening it with cables ic
driving logs of wood into its vulnerable parte.
To capture such monsters by any other means
must have been impossible. The largest boats
would hardly have withstood tho struggles
that must have ensued after an attempt at
japture by spear or harpoon, a'suming even
that such weapons were known. Once en
trapped in shallow water we can imagine that
the sight must have been a rtriking one; tho
normous fish, far more active in this condi
;fon than a whale, beating the water with
blows of itspowerful tail, making frantic and
mighty rushes this way and that, snapping
the great cables like threads, capsizing the
rude boats and spreading terror and destruc
A man to ono of these mighty sharks would
be almost unnoticeable, and we can imagine
that such a huge creature must have been
apoa a continual forage to apposeo its appe
tite. A moderate sized whale would have
oeen legitimate prey, a our ordinary man
saters of today have been known to swallow
aearly an entire hore. At this time many
strange creatures thronged the ocean, and
doubtless animal life was made much more
profuse than at present.
Any one who has seen a shark of large size
moving along beneath the surface can realize
tho terror they produce in nil observers,
