Mr, to be sent to various collieries if their
presence shall be needed.
To-night the force is camped under its own
tents on a hill overlooking th» city, and the
only official force inside is the city's provost
guards Rigid discipline Is being enforced to
prevent stray soldiers having conflicts with the
Ftrikers. and all precautions are being taken to
prevent any outbreak. Eighty-five per cent of
the residents of this town and vicinity are for
eigners, mostly Slavs and Lithuanians, many of
them unable to speak English, and it is th
class whom th* strike leaders say are responsi
ble for th« rioting. This afternoon a committee
of the strikers' officials called on General Gobin
and placed their view of the situation before
him In the first place, they said, the shooting
occurred because the Sheriff did not send
enough deputies here, and secondly, they blamed
Deputy Sheriff Beddall for firing the first shot.
They believed the presence of troops unneces
sary, and expressed their faith in their power to
prevent any further outbreak and to maintain
order. General Gobin said the result of his
Investigations was that Deputy Beddall did not
fire the first shot, and that bullets were fired
from the strikers' revolvers before there was
any reply from Beddall's. He told the commit
tee it was wrong, too. in minimizing the condi
tion, assuring them that he regarded it as seri
ous and the troops necessary- They promised
;<-• do all they could to preserve order, and as
sured him their peace committees were effective.
To-night the situation remains unchanged,
there is no outbreak. The strike leaders, con
vinced that all violence is ended, are now cir
culating a petition atnon; the merchants and
jrominent citizens requesting the withdrawal of
th* troops, which will be sent to the Governor.
Many are signing it.
This morning two soldiers. Lieutenant Conner.
of Company K. and Sergeant Savior, of Com
pany E. Sth Regiment, while on their way to
join their companies at St. Clair, were attacked
■within half an hour of each other by bodies of
strikers. Conner was severely beaten, hut Say
lor thrashed two of the men who attacked him
and pot away unscratched. William Pasco, a
coal and iron policeman, was shot from ambush
while taking two non-union men over the moun
tain near Ashland. A load of buckshot pierced
his side and shoulder, inflicting serious wounds.
He -was carried to .he Ashland Hospital, and a
force of guards, searching the mountains, dis
covered John Depoe, a striker. He was ar
rested, a gun was taken from him and he was
sent to jail at Sunbury.
Aside from these three cases there was no
violence of any sort near Shenandoah. A num
ber of men made a threatening movement tow
ard a colliery at New-Philadelphia and Sheriff
Beddall was notified, but the disorder was

TO AVOID TROUBLE.
fBT TELEG3AFH TO THE TRIBUNE. 1
Wilkesbarre. Penru, July 31.— President Mitch
ell remained here all day, and will not go to
Shenandoah unless conditions change. He said
that he relied upon the local labor leaders to
prevent any more outbreaks. He thinks that
the militia Is unnecessary, and will be recalled
Eoon. Mr. Mitchell issued the following signed
statement as soon as he heard of the outbreak:
"While I am not informed of the causes of the
regrettable occurrence at Shenandoah. and am
consequently, not in a position to say whether
the miners or the deputies are responsible for
It, I am. nevertheless, much grieved to learn
that there has been a serious violation of the
law. I have repeatedly warned the miners that
the person who violates the law v.as the worst
enemy the strikers could have, and we have di
rected our local officers and committees to be
constantly on the alert to prevent any breach of
the peace. Our efforts in this direction will be
redoubled, and I trust that judgment will be
vithheld until the responsibility for the trouble
at Shenandoah has been properly located.
: Later he issued a second statement as follows:
Complete, and authentic reports furnished by
rational official? of our organization located at
Fhenandoah say that the stories of the riot
at Shenandoah were greatly exaggerated, and
that the fact was much distorted. It develops
■that no or.c was killed 01 fatally injured, and
that the entire trouble might have been averted
if the deputies had kept cool and used greater
discretion. While I greatly deprecate acts of
lawlessness by any one. and particularly by
those on strike. I am naturally pleased to learn
thai the trouble is not as serious as at first re
ported. 1 have repeatedly warned the strikers
that any violation of the law on their part would
militate against themselves alone, and I am
hopeful that there will not be a repetition of
trouble of this character.
The Citizens" Alliance has sent an open letter
to President Mitchell, urging him to declare
against unlawful action. It said in part:
We do not want what we have already re
ceived — the general asseveration of your regard
for law and order. We want your positive,
pointed and specific condemnation of boycotting,
rioting, unlawful assembly, violence, perpe
trated to prevent men from working.
Does the union condemn these specific things?
Do you condemn these specific things?
We know, of course, that in your heart you
must condemn them, but we urge you to pro
claim your condemnation, for the sake of justice

Harrisburg:. Venn.. July 31. — Governor Stone

Paul Smith's ;n the Adirondack Mountains.
Thp Governor had a conference with Adjutant
General Stewart and Major General Miller and
subsequently made th? following statement:
Being satisfied by Information from reliable
sources that riot and mob violence existed in
Shenandoah. two regiments and a troop of cav
alry were sent there early this morning. Ad
vices to-day indicate that matters are quieting
down and no further serious trouble is ex

occurred in Shenadoah yesterday was caused
by the turbul«nl outburst of the foreign ele
ment. I do not believe that the leaders of the
labor organizations countenance these disturb
ance?, and I look to them to do all In their
power to prevent their recurrence.
Unless there is another outbreak In the strike

asking the president of the Board of Trade to
indorse down margins deposited by the com
plainants. Waite. Thorburne & Co. to secure
55,00 bushels of short sales. The court held ses
sion before the opening hour of the Board of
Trade, in order that a decision might be arrived
at before business was begun. So important,
hov-ever, did the court consider the precedent
of the case that the motion for a dissolution
of the temporary injunction was not consid
ered, and the case will come up for further
adjudication next week.
The effect of the action of the court is, for
the time being, to protect th* complainants
against any alleged corner, and is construed
as working against the bull clique of operators
on the board.

ABOLITION OF' SUGAR BOUNTIES.
London. July 31.— In an explanatory state
ment, in the House of Commons to-day, of the
grant of £250.000 f 51,250,000) for the relief of
sugar planters in the British West Indies,
Colonial Secretary Chamberlain said he took a
hopeful view of the future of the islands. When
he took office grave apprehension existed that
the islands would be thrown on the hands of the
government, and it was that state of affairs that
led to the appointment in 1806 of a royal com
mission to investigate the West Indian sugar
industry. As a result of the Brussels conven
tion's abolition of sugar bounties, which were
ruining the West Indies, the situation had much
improved and was now much brighter, especial
ly as a direct line of fruit steamen was de
veloping an Important trade.
It was promised also that enormous coal de
posits which had been found in Trinidad would
materially help the island, and British Guiana,
vhich hnd been largely dependent on sugar, was
now developing diamond and gold fields which
promised to have considerable commercial value.
However the period till the promised abolition
of bounties in 1903 must be bridged over, and
P>soooo C.<l 230.00© was the smallest sum tnar
would suffice. The government would see that
the relief fund was so distributed that the neea

Port Jefferson, Lo.ig Island, July 31.— Nothing
definite has been learned here of the vessel that
was said to have been on tire off this place last

vessel was seen it was said she was working her
way to the north shore, of the Sound.
The Park City arrived her.- this morning on her

been no fire on his vessel nor had he seen any In
the night at any place on the Sound. Now the

Berlin, July 31.— An official of the Foreign
Office informs The Associated Press that the
reason for the rather short list of decorations in
connection with Prince Henry visit to the
United States Is that many persons on whom
Emperor William desired to confer orders de

some small souvenir from Prince Henry be
A Boston newspaper telegraphed the Court
Marshal to-day to inquire why Boston was left
out of the decorations, and the Foreign Office
calls attention to the fact that to Professor
Hugo Muensterberg. of Harvard University,
was given the Red Eagle of the Third Class.
This decoration, however, was not announced
In the American list, because Professor Muen

foreign ruler within the prohibition of the constitu

Berlin. July 31.— Emperor William has par
doned Lieutenant Hildebrand. who was sen
tenced to two years' imprisonment in a fortress
for the killing of Lieutenant Blaskowltx in a
duel, last November. The affair attracted in
ternational attention, because Blaskowitz wa«
shot and killed on the morning of the day set
for his wedding.
The duel, which took place at Intersburg. East
Prussia, followed an episode in which Lieuten
ant Blaskowitz. while intoxicated at his bachelor
dinner, struck Lieutenant Hildebrand. A regi
mental court of honor decided that the duel was
unavoidable. An investigation developed the
fact that Lieutenant Blmakowlta awoke the day
after his bachelor dinner without any recollec
tion of th.- altercation, and went to visit his
tlancee, whence he was recalled to fight the
Lieutenant Hildebrand served only seven
months of his sentence. Military men explain
the pardon by saying that Lieutenant Hilde
brand acted simply as the laws of honor re
quired: that he had to fight and kill his op
ponent if he could.
There was considerable criticism of the Mates?*
of two years' imprisonment imposed on Lieuten
ant Ulldebrand by the court martial, on the ground
that it was Inadequate. Comment was caused also
by the fact that the trial was held behind closed
dbors and that newspaper correspondents were
forbidden to report arvthing concerning the meet
ing which brought about the duel.

I paid $5.00") to Emanuel Friend, my attorney, and
JS.UO to pawnbrokers. Strong's story that he paid
me back anything Is another lie.
"1 do not know until I get my mail whether I
will go to France or not. I know he Is there, but I
do not want to have anything 1 to do with him. I
have suffered all this outrageous treatment to save
his mother and my own. I am anxious to get to
Genoa, where I have tickets for a tiara, diamond
heart and other things he pawned. I have no
means whatever. I may land in Kamchatka be

When a statement of Lord Hope's bankruptcy
case was shown to her. mentioning that Hopes
