A DINNER FOR HER HUSBAND

the Woman— Minneapolis
Special to The Journal.
Cleveland, 0.. May 15.—Society here is
gasping at the trouble developed at an
exclusive little dinner party in Brookdale
street, just around the corner from Euclid
avenue, last night. An angry wife. Mrs.
Henry R. Adams, made a fight for her
husband such as few women ever at
With her husbands mother, his brother
and his coachman, she drove to the ele
gant home of Mrs. Harrison E. Gilniore,
a divorced woman. Seated at the dinner
table were Mrs. Gilmore, Henry R. Adams,
head of the Adams Bag company, who is
a former lieutenant in the regular army
and whose family is socially one of the
most prominent in the city; Walter D.
Meals, chairman of the republican county
committee; H. D. Davis, a young society
leader, now assistant prosecuting attor
ney, and Mrs. Gilmores sister, a Mrs.
Bennett of Minneapolis. Mrs. Adams
sent her coachman to the door with a note
addressed to Mrs. Gilmore. The servant
said Mrs. Gilmore did not live there.
Then the coachman thrust his arm
through the door and someone inside shut
it violently and cut the coachman's wrist.
Then the wife broke the bay window
and followed by her mother-in-law,
brother-in-law and the latter's wife,
climbed through it. There was consterna
tion at the dinner table. Mrs. Adams, in
honor of whose husband the dinner was
given, rushed to the hostess. They
clinched and struggled, scattering silver
and glassware. The hunted husband
aided the coachman in separating the
women and then stood back.
With a carving knife and a wine bottle
the wife began the destruction of every
thing in reach. She slashed the silken
hangings uniil they lay in strings on the
floor. She smashed the china and glass
ware with the bottle. All the thne she
upbraided her husband and called on hi?
mother to witness his disgrace. The re
publican county committee chairman and
the assistant prosecuting attorney started
to find a policeman, but they were re
called by Mrs. Gilmore, who insisted that
no outsiders be brought in, although
household treasures were being wrecked.
The battle began about 8 o'clock and at
10 o'clock the angry wife was still de
stroying things. She became hysterical
and finally fainted and was taken home
by her husband's relatives. Mrs. Adams
says Mrs. Gilmore has hypnotized her hus
band, and that he is less to blame than
she. There was to have been a hearing
to-day on a motion to give Mrs. Gilmore
the custody of her child, now in the pos
session of her divorced husband, but the
mother was prostrated and the hearing
■was continued. Mr. Meals and Mr. Davis
say they were at the dinner because they
■were attorneys for Mrs. Gilmore in the
trial. Mr. Adams, the husband, says
GAMBLERS' HUSH MONEY
Bis Checks Drawn by the Fraternity

Aetc York Sun Special Set-riv
New York, May 25.—One of the John

money from gamblers has been caught in
the meshes spread by the committee of

who are familiar with all the evidence
that has been secured in the recent raids
are keeping secret the name of the man.

The committee of fifteen is also in pos
session of evidence to prove that police
captains have paid as high as $20,000 for

poolrooms at $500—532,000; disorderly
bouses (150) at $60— $y,000; other per

$131,000. Of this he must give 65 per cent

NO GENERAL OUTBREAK OCCURS
Satiunul Uuardanien BeliiK Distrib

Are Moat Xeeded.
Albany, X. V., May 15.—The traction
Arlke was productive of no serious dis
order during the night. The company
made no further effort to operate cars or
repair its lines and will probably remain
inactive until the military force called by
the state is in a position to afford the full
est protecton. A strong effort was made
during the night to bring the contending
interests into conference, but it failed and
at this time the breach is as wide as ever.
The establishment of the militia patrol
began shortly before midnight when three
companies of the Tenth batallion were
quietly and quickly dispatched from the
Washington avenue armory. One com
pany was ordered to the traction power
house, another to the upper town barn and
the third to the northern barn. When
D company, which was ordered to the up
town barn, swung into Quail street, a
jeering crowd fell in on its flanks and rear
and followed it down to the barn. As it
halted in front of the barn a shower of
stones and other missies fell among the
men. It was thought for a time that
there would be a clash, but the police
drove the crowd back and the soldiers
made no menacing move. The police with
drew as soon as the National Guard picket
line was established around the traction
company's plant and as the night wore
on the crowd melted away.
As the new day came the crowd reas
sembled and at daylight it numbered
about 500. The sentries kept the street
clear. The women were particularly vin
dictive and howled out their choicest
epithets at the non-union men who
showed themselves at the upper windows
of the barn.
The first detachment of the Twenty
third infantry arrived here at 7:45 o'clock
this morning and its opening part in this
great industrial struggle came near being
a tragedy. Just after their train had
crossed the Xe*v York Central bridge
spanning the Hudson it struck a mis
placed switch. The powerful mogul en
gine drawing it jumped the track and
went tumbling over on its side. None of
the cars left the track, but they were
given a jolt that shook every man in the
train. There were 400 men in. the detach
ment under Litutenant Colonel Brady.
The entire second regiment under com
mand ot Colonel Lloyd of Troy and in
cluding 1,000 men from Troy, Cohoes,
Hoosic Falls, Schenectady and Saratoga,
have been ordered to report in this city
this afternoon. This will make the total
military strength about 2,200.
The first active step of the military
forces was taken shortly after 10 o'clock,
when the Third signal corps, mounted, and
r a detachment of mounted police cleared
I the streets around the Quail street barn.
A zone of four blocks was cleared and a
new picket line established at its outer
edge. This movement it is said, is pre
liminary to the repairing of the lines in
that vicinity and the clearing away of the
wrecked cars and obstruction on the
No Chance for Settlement.
W. D. Mahan. international president
of the Amalgamated Association of Street
Railway Employes of America, left the
city te-day. Before going away Mr. Ma
han gave out a statement in which it was
said that Chairman Dilworth and he had
come to Albany hoping to bring about an
adjustment of the difficulties between the
union traction company and its employes,
but that owing to the existing bitterness
there was no present prospect of bringing
the contending forces together.
It had therefore, been decided to leave
affairs here in the hands of two local or
ganizations until such time as they
deemed the presence of the international
officers might be of assistance to them.
Mr. Mahan added that the strikers had

Albany, N. V., May 15.—A thousand na
tional guardsmen and a hundred mounted
men will occupy Albany streets and at
tempt to force a riotous crowd to
let the cars oi the United Traction com
pany run with non-union men. The
Twentj-third regiment of Brooklyn, the
Tenth battalion of Albany and the Third
signal corps will make up the comple
ment of men. They will be reinforced
by 200 special deputies, 300 policemen
and over a hundred Pinkerton detectives.
It is feared that the bloodshed and riot
ous scenes yesterday will be repeated
with much greater fatality.
The results of yesterday were one man
dying, fully twenty injured, eighty men
brought here by the company induced to
desert, the trolley lines cut, cars demol

control the thousands of men patrolling
the streets. The company say they are
determined to run their cars and it is
said a trainload of men are waiting on
the train for the troops to make their

several thousand weary street car
strikers and sympathizers went to
their homes, but they were replaced
by as many more who took up the vigil

running their electric cars with non
union men. The darkness brought some
confidence that there would be no attempt
before morning to move cars, for two
attempts made in broad daylight had
brought bloodshed and riot upon such a
scale that the local police, aided by scores
of deputies and Pinkerton men, had been
unable to quell the disturbance.

wounded, one of the two cars the com

Germans Think One Chinese Propo
sition Will Be Accepted.
Berlin, May 15.—Officials here, discuss
ing the answer of the Chinese peace com
missioners, say the fact of prime signifi
cance therein is that the commissioners
agree to the indemnities as demanded and
the withdrawal of the troops can now
proceed forthwith, but that not all the
foreign forces will be withdrawn at once.
The Chinese propostion to raise the im
port and export duties will probably be
accepted, since the only other possibility
of increasing China's revenues Is the re
form of the liken duties, which the pow
ers particularly wish to avoid, because it
would require too much mixing in the
internal affairs of China. Further inter
national control over the customs will
be unnecessary, beyond Sir Robert Hart's.

BAD FOR VANCOUVER
Competitive Line to iCootenay Not
Wanted, Says the Government.
Special to The Journal.
Vancouver, B, C, May 15.—The gov- ••
ernment of British Columbia has declined
to accept the .: principle of a competitive ,
line to the" Kootenay country. It evi
dently means, if possible, to give the sub- :
sidy to the . Canadian Pacific railway., The ;
legislature. has ' sustained ■ the government
in the matter, but the people of Vancou
ver and Victoria are indignant,: and still
hope . that a competitive ; railway. may, be
secured by means -of a', good offer con
nected directly or Indirectly with the
Great Northern. It is felt here that Van- '
couver will never become a great city If
supplied -, with transit facilities by one
railroad company only.

denied the charge made 'by Mr. Maxwell,
M. P., that when at Ottawa he specially
pressed on ' the Canadian : v government's >
consideration the claims of his Vancouver
Island railway. / Sir Wilfrid , Laurier sup
ports T the ; premier, . and says - > that ; he
pleaded equally for railway, subsidies for
various parts of the . province,; and cer
tainly did not ' give preference to his own •
railroad r interests. Notwithstanding: these
denials of the two premiers, Mr. Maxwell
declines to retract > his assertions, and.
practically challenges an action for libel.
