Thoonly row over Third avenuo oars yos
terday happoned a long WAy off the llhe. Car
No. 8. with a groon driver and balky horses.
Started up town from tho Post Office at 11K
o'clock A. M.. missed tho swltoh In Chatham
tauaro. and cot on tho East Broadway track.
I t got up as far as Oliver streot A Wry Dock
driver hurried his car up behind, apparently
". wlththerurcoaoof getting tho Third avanuo
enrlnatrap. Car No. 3 eould not so back, and
tho balky team refusodtopull It up hill aeroie
the cobbles. There was a blook In tho square,
and a crowd began to gatbor.
The pollco finally lifted the Third avonue car
bodily and placed It on the down track of the
Becond avonue road and told tho driver to
i drive down the Mow Bowery to Peck slip and
I tnrn thero.
The car was now empty, and tho horses pulled
It at a lively rata down the New Dowery crude.
The strange eight of a boyoottod Third nvonuo
'" ear on tho Becond nrenue track created a sen
sation along tho lino, and boys purauod thocar.
Boundtman Michael F, Foody was In charge of
the Oak street police at Chatham square, and
be knew that when the onr reached Peck slip
there mlitht be trouble as It was noon, and the
worklngmen would be on the street. He ran to
the Oak streot station, oalled out the reserve,
i and hastened to the slip. ..... .
They were too late. Tho car had sot thore. and
men who were Idle about the streets had saluted
it with a shnwerof stones, which fell on the
roof and crashed through the i windows). The
i, trlshtonpd conductor took off his badgo and
escaped down a sldo struct Tho driver stood
at his post holding tho plunging horses, lie
sldo him was an old policeman, with a gray
beard. No. 441. Stonos cumo that way until tho
policeman drew his revolver and threatened to
shoot the next man that flung one.
A tremendous crowd had now gathored.
tonos continued to fall, and all of the car win
dows wore smashed. Matters wero beginning
to look sorlous for the driver and tho old polloo
man. whon Foody arrived with tho platoon and
L charged the crowd. Tho police did not strlkn
W for IioaiIs. but thor prodded nnd punched nnd
pushed until they hud cleared tho slip and sur
rounded tho car. . . ..
The driver tried to start tho car. but tho
J Tightened horses refused to pull. Polioeman
lo. 411 went to tho PoslOfflco terminus after
another team, and brought it bnck with an
other driver. By this time tho runaway con
ductor bad come back and the battered car was
started off In good shape and at Chatham
square It went on Its own track. Two police
men escorted tho old driver to tho Post Offlco.
Ofllcer 441 was August Browning of the
1 Prlnco street station, who has boon twenty-
four yours on tho force. The driver was Cbas.

Were run on the Third avenue line, and the
nsual complement on the cable road and 125th
street. The first car on yesterday's schedule
started from the Harlem atablea at 4:30 instead
of 3:58. This is attributed to a misunder
standing. Forty-four of the care ran at night
without molestation, Tbo strlkors kept In

any of them wero retained, and they maybe

" The reports of President Cleveland's mar
rlsge havo thus far not been confirmed by
any ono In tho White Houso, but tbe Times' a
correspondent was nble to obtain to-day a
practical admission from thn President thnt
the reports were truo. Mr. Cleveland said:
" I do not concede tho right of newspapers
to Inquire Into my prlvnto affairs. The news
papers, as a rule, have not treated me fairly,
andlballevo that a moro mention of a iloaire
on my part to have nothing said about Miss
Folsom would only Incite tho ruoottors to out
do their previous efforts.'
' 'Then you are going to marry her ?'
t I will not make nny statement about that,
but I think the newspapers are not acting right
about this matter,"
"In the course of further. conversation the
President refused to deny the reports of his
marriago, and practlcnlly admitted that the
reports were true. Ho said In effect that an
arrangement had boon made by which nothing
would bo said about the engagement until a
time which bad been decided upon by tbe per
sons directly Interested, The Impression given
wns tbat the President would like to confirm
tbe report, but thnt through conscientious
motives be did not fool that ho was at liberty
to Inlk about It.
"Buffalo men who are in Washington say
tbat tho wedding will tako place In June, and
most of thorn bellovo that It will occur In
Buffalo. It Is conceded thnt Miss Folsom
wishes to be married in the White House, but
Mr, Cleveland's desires will have to be consult
ed, and ho Is known to be avorso to a display
ot any kind on such an occasion."

warned his nudlonco thnt the tlmo would como
whon tho brutal oppression ot tbe capitalists
would drive every ono Havo thcmsclvos Into tho

for it, for they kopt up tho porpetual pnnlo In

Bamuot Fiolden, a grlm-vlsoged Anarchist
wearing a black slouch hat, then leaped upon a
barrel. He said the newspapers of tho city
charged tbo Socialists with cowardice, saying
thoy would sneak awny from real danger.
They were there to-night to ropol tho llo and
provo that they were willing to risk their

death to die like a horo ratbor than be starved

produced by labor tho laboror rocoivod flftoon
cents for every dollar ho oarnod, whllo the cap
italists who did nothing, abeorbsd tho remain
ing clglity-flvo coats of profit.
Whllo tho Anarchist was talking a dark oloud
rollod out of tho northorn horizou. It swept to
zenith, nnd had tbo appearnnoo of a tornado.
A fierce, cold blast of wind roarod down tbo
street, signs croaked violently, and bits ot pa
per filled the air. Tho great crowd of Social
ists, fearlnRfthnt a tornado was approaching,
began to seek sboltor. Tbo Anarchist loadors
urged tho mon to adjourn to Solp's Hall, which
Is only about half a block away. Tho ominous
oloud had now passed over the crowd.aud north
of Lako streot tho sturs shone out neatn. Tbo
vast nudlonco was now encotitnged to remain
by Flelden, who said he would detain thom but

As tho Anarchist spoko these words the
crowd surged closer to tho row of barrels on
whloh tho spoakors stood. A most singular
feeling appoarud to pervade the vast nudlsnce.
South 'of Randolph and Dosplnlnes stroots
a body of men wore dimly seen approaching
In measurod tread It appeared like a phalanx
of Masons returning from n private assombly
or drill. Tho stillness of tbolr approach was
omnious and appalling. The silent marchers
camo ncaror until the eas lamps on Randolph
street threw tholr flickering light upon them.
Then a hundred stars and a thousand brass
buttons flashed at the street Intersections. The
silent marchers were 400 police ofllcors ar
ranged la platoons and choking tho stroet
from gutter to gutter. As ther crossed
tbe car trackB on Randolph street tho officers
clutohed their clubs with a firmer grasp, and
than hurried forward, thus compelling tbe
2.000 Anarchists still massed In tbe street to
fall baok before tbe measured advance.
Just as tho officers roachod tho barrols upon
which Spiers, Parsons, and Fiolden wero stand
ing a sorpontlne stream of flro burst from u
window on tho roof of Crone Brotbors'

appoared to be dylntr. He swooned nway on
the floor. Tho fourth victim was a young man
who was shot In tho calf of tho leg.
While tho battlo was at Its height patrol
wagons filled with ofllcors with drawn ro
volvors rattled down the stroots from all tho
outlying preolnct. They lenped out of the
vehiolos and hurried to the assistance of tholr
comrades, who hnd by this time succeeded in
dispersing tho mob as far as Fulton street
The officers, nearly 1.000 strong, now formed
In six platoons and oloarod all the stroots with

Chioaoo, May 4 Great wero tho expecta

muotlng horo called for to-night. As early as

speaking and excttemont would begin. Tho
place chosen was tho old Hnymarkat on Ran

distrlot densely populated by Germans nnd
Poles. Surrounding tho square on every hand
are ton-cont lodging housos, saloons, and many
of tbe lowest dives in the city.
It was after 0 P. II. before the stolid group of
anarchists wero choorod by tbo presence of any
londors. August Splos finally arrived, and.
cllmbim: a wngon In front of Crane Brotbors'
factory, bogan an nddross denouncing cnpltnl
nnd assorting that he was not tho causa of es
torclay's riot, but Hint It was a natural rosult ot

gradually dwindle away.
Within halt a block of tho spoakors could bn

Tbe utterances of tbo spoakers woro still of
amobt Inflammatory character, bowover. and
tbo hearers who btlll romalnod grew riotous In
tholr demeanor. Tbo police concluded to put
an end to thu disturbance, nnd advancing, or
dered the crowd to disperse. At first tho So
cialists foil back slowly, ono of tho sneakers
still urging them to stand Urm. Suddenly threo
bombs were thrown. Tbo police rotorted In
stantly with a volloy from tholr revolvers. Tho
rlotors answered with theirs, which the bouuo!
proved they wero well provided with.
The mob appoared crnzod with a frantic de
slro for blood, and, holding its ground, poured

The lattor fought gallantly, and at last dis
persed tho mob nnd cleared tbn markot place.
Thoy aro now gunrdlng every approach to the
place, and no ono Is allowed mere.
Immediately after tho first explosion tho
officers who were left standing drew their re
volvers and fired round after round Into tbe
mob. Large numbers of the mob fell, and as
they dropped woro immediately carrlod to thn

Anarchists and pollco ofllcer a fought In A
rnln storm this afternoon. At 1 o'olook 709
strikers marched upon tho paint works of
Carv. Osilon V Parker, on West Eigh
teenth street When they reached the shops
tboy polted the four speolnl poilcomen on duty
with stones nnd bricks. Thon thoy toll upo
them with clubs. The ofllcors shouted lustily ,
for help, nnd thon tried to oscapo punishment
by running. Ono of thom stumbled and foil.
Fearing that he would bo stoned to dosth br
tho yelling mob. ho drew n rovolvor from his
brenst oockot and llred flvo shots as ho was
lying on the ground into tho rapidly approach
ing rubble The Ringing of tho bullets as tbay
whizzed over tbolr heads cheeked therlotertL '
Thon n mnn with a red feather sticking out ot
tbo crown of n black toll bat waved a rusty
sabro over his head, and urged his companion ,
to kill the nrostrato ofllcer. ,'
Just ns thn mob was about to dash forward :
Again the Hlnmnn street nnd Twelfth street 1
patrol wagons, filled with ofllcors, rattled dowa
thertroet The drlyor of each wagon atooel
upon his foot nnd lashed tbo horsos. whlofc
were flecked with foam. When the bluo vehi
cles nenred tbo rioters the oflflcers massed
themsolves against tho drivers' seats and, tak
ing aim over ouch others' shoulders, fired vol- i
ley aftor volloy over the beads of the crowd.
The effect was amusing. Mnn with their pock,
ou filled with stones huddled boblnd barricade
no moro substantial than a picket fenoe. They i
started down Eighteenth stroet to Centre Ave- '
nue, a sort of rendezvous for tbe thousands of
foreign strikers In tbo neighborhood. Here the)
Polloemnn Small of the Hlnmnn Streot statloA
leaped out of bis wngon nnd startod alter one
of tbo leaders of the riot, who was yelling to
his comrades to blow up tbo pollco with dyna- '
mlto. Ho ran Into tho crowd nnd grabbed lbs
Anarchist liy tbo nook. Tho latter screamed
for holp. The rlotors surgsd nbout thn officer
and his struggling prisoner, nnd then fell upoa
tho former with stonos nnd clubs. Small to
defend blmsolf fired Bovernl shots Into the
orowd. but without effect The shooting the a
becatuo hot nnd indiscriminate. Small's com
rnden ran to his assistance, but before he was
rescued from his perilous position ho wna shot
through the bund. Tho prisoner escaped. Re
ports ot axplodlng cartridges camo from every
quartor. and tho air was filled with smoke.
Kill tho hlrolings," bawled a man with
red whiskers as he polntod nn nnclent
revolver nt Ofllcer Small. Before hs
could null tho trigger Detectlvo Michael
Granger struck his hand, and tho weapon fell
to the ground, Tho mob then pounced upon
GrnrrRor nnd drncgod him into the muddy
stroet. A rock as largo ob a coooanut whizzed
past his loft cheek, and n brick hit him In the
forehead. Thn dotecttvo fell to the ground,
with a stream of blood pouring from tho wound.
Tho remainder of tho officers fired a seore of
shots Into tbo surging, howling mob. One man ;
wns seen to drop, but his comrades picked hint
up and hurried through a neighboring alley.
Tho sight of Anarchist blood scorned to fill the
rioters with fear, for as soon ns they learned
that ono of their number hnd been shot they
fled proclpltctely. Tho ofllcors then charged
upon thom nnd capturod seven of tho lenders.
Thor wore taken to tho Twelfth street and Uln
msn struct statlous.
The non-union mon nt work In tho MeCor

but no blood wns shod. Many of the scabs wera
escorted to their homes by tho ofllcors, Th
strikers nro boasting that thoy will yet drive
tho scabs from tho neighborhood nnd apply tha -torch

It Booms tho hnll hnd bean occupied as a drill
room by a company ot zouaves, which was chief

fow Americans In tbo organization withdrew
yesterday on account ot the socialistic vlows of

contemplated some movement which oamo to
tho knowledge of tbe pollco nnd Induced them
to make the raid. No Information concerning

TUE MAK WHO INCITED ULOODHIIED.
The ArbeUer Zeituna, a German paper edited "
by Spies, the Socialist who was one ot tha
spcakors who incited yesterday's riot at Mo-
Cormlck's, announces this afternoon that A
great mooting of "the people" will bo held to- i
night on Dosplninosstrnet, and "whoever con
demns the horrible brutality of yesterday must
be there." Tbe paper further says:
WorMneinen. tile tinted poliro jesterday tmirderet

nothing but tone to defend tneuuelte. been armed

domand for olght hours' work and ten hour'
nay, Tbe reply Is substantially as follows:

niunlcstlon, as committee for Lumbermen's Union Mo. t.
It is beuii carefully considered by tho committee chosea
by tlio lumber dealers and planing mill companies ef

stats why tbe lumber trade of Chicago cannot meet
your wishes as expressed lu yeur communication under

The reply then shows that tho volume, of
lumbar business lu Chicago has steadily de

compared to Chicago, and the result has be
largo shipments to consumers direct from saw
mills by railway. Th wages paid by Chicago
lumbor dealers and pinning mill owners are
larger for tho ssmngradoot mon than are paid
by any other Chicago Industry. Tbe majority
ot thn men are wholly unskilled, aud not even
any knowlodgoof the hngllth language Is re
quired: but II par day bus beau paid men
newly arrived, with a chance of early promo
