which was agreed to, directing the

the propriety of making such an

Senator Eustis offered a resolution
directing the Finance Committee to
inquire whether it bad been the cus
tom for the Assistant Treasurer at
New Orleans to receive deposits of
standard silver dUiars iroin shippers
of said co b, and to inane to their cor
lispoidenta at New Orleans receipts
for the silver, subject t count, and to
issue silver certificates alter the count
of said dollars so deposited had been
made, and whether raid custom, if it
had prevailed, had been changed by
instruction of the Treasurer of the
Uaited Statea and the reasons therefor ;
a io, whether such custom was now in
lorce at air other Hub-Treasury; also,
whether there was adequate clerical
force at tbe New Orleans Sub T-es-ury,
and, if not, why assistance was
nscessary there to enable the Sub
Treasurer to carry oat the law. The
New Orleans Sub-Treasury, Mr; Emtis
ia!.d, bad refused to receive a ship
ment of (15,000 of silver from the
Memphis, Tenn., Bank of Commerce
and tb Waco Slate Bank of Waco.
Tex. If that statement should
be substantiated, Mr. Eustis
continued, and if it should be proved
that custom of receiving silver had
prevailed at New Orleans, and it was
not violative of law, and that it now
prevailed in New York aad other
places, then, Mr. Eustis said, the otli
cial who had approved of the change
of custom in tbe city of New' Or
leans exposed himself to very grave
suspicions, to say the least of it, with
reference to a secret warfare against
tbe silver dollar. Mr. Eustis would
make no charge in the absence of
proof, but he warated to get at the

TERRIBLE RIOT AT L0.D0.
TIIE CUT IX THE HINDS OF A
Stores aiid lloises Sacked and Pil
lagedAttacks on Defense
London-, Febru vy 6. The "starving
mechanics" of London to-day held a
mass meeting in Trafalgar Square
around the Nelson monument and it
resulted in a riot. The proceedings
were opened with an assemblage of
10,000 men. Police were present in
large numbers. They at once saw that
the Socialistic element of London
greatly- predominated in the crowd,
which was aleo managed by well
known Socialists, and extraordinary
vigilance was ordered and to preserve
the peace atjll hrzards. Conspicuous
among the leaders of the multitude
was Mr. Burns, who ran as the Social
ist candidate in Nottingham in the re
cent election. He sneered at tbe po
lice and acted generally a iif be wished
to bring about a conflict between them
and tbe people. Finally, he ascended
the pedestal cf the Nelson column for
the purpose cf delivering a harangue.
He was well aware this act would not
be tolerated, and the police polite y
ordered him to get down. ' This be re
fased to do, appealing to the crowd
lo resitt ''interference with the
exercise of popular rights." The
cliicerp, however, were determined
and they pushed their way through
the excited and resting mass of hu
manity, and by force removed Mr.
Barns f om the pedestal. By this
time the crowd had vastly augmented,
and the streets adjacent were packed
.with surging mobs. Tbe stir in the
e'evatsd spot where tbe Burns inci
dent took place, was easily percepti
ble ; almost the entire area covered by
tbe concourse and the sight of helmiti
and uniforms into a struggle, was ac
cepted as visible proof of the com
mencement of the
"riOBT AGAINST TBI LAW."
The intelligence was responded to
with a general and fearful howl, and
an attempt sd rush from all directions
to tbe point of interest. Burus had
now been removed some distance
from the posit on he had attempted to
occupy. He became emboldened by
toe criea of tbe throng, and mads a
desperate effort to recover his lost
greund. He was so effectively helped
by the mob that the officers on the
spot were brushed out cf tbe way and
the orator wai soon pressed up against
the monument. He quickly re
ascended the monument, accompanied
by a number of ether t'ocialist
leaders. Burns bore a red 11 ig,
and he waved it to the assemblage as a
signal of his triumph over the authori
ties. He was greeted with deafening
shouts, repeated again and again.
Burns then leisurely finished his ad
dress. He thfip read a fiercely-woi (led
reBoiiflt'.,iIrisV tWjcanced the "au
thors of the present distress in Eng
land," and demanded that Parliament
start public works to give employment
and bread to the t:ns of thou'ands cf
deserving men wbo were oat of work
through no fault cf their own, but be
cause of bad government; to afford
every facility for the employment ot
British capital at home for tbe benefit
of British people, and to give Br t.sh
enterprise preference over foreign, and
assei ted that the time had arrived for
Parliament to earnestly legislate f)r
the relief of the depressed in the
ENGLISH AOEICULTCBAL INDUSTRY.
The revolutions demanded the im
mediate appointment of a minister of
commerce and a minister of agricul
ture, and concluded with the resolve
tbat copies should be forwarded to Mr.
Gladstone, Lord Salisbury, Mr. Parnell
and tbe Board of Public Works. Tbe
reading of the resolutions was accom
I anied by fierce comment aad short
explanatory speeches by tbe various
orators who stood with Burns. Some
of these orators went so far as (0 warn
the government tbat although the
"starving mechanics' of London are
now fct. erupting to draw attention to
their needs by quiet and peaceful agi
tation, they were bound to gat bread,
and would get it by attacking tbe
baker-ohops next, if J tbe 'government
did not come to their relitf. Boms
himself, in one of these side speeches,
denounced the present House of Com
mons as a body of landlords and capi
talists, for whom banging was too
good. He aleo declared that tbe peo
ple hadiasiembled to summon Parlia
ment to immediately relieve the dis
tress of Ihe British workingmen; tbat
the people wanted the question settled
at once and peacefully, if possible;
otherwise revolution was inevi
table. All this so aggravated tbe
excitement of the huge mob thet
the police reformed with increased
force and made another assault. They
succeeded in forcing their way up to
tbe pedettil. They reached this .olnt
just as the resolutions which bad
already been offered and seconded
were about to be submitted to the
mob for approval. The officers at oiice
ordered the proceedings to be discon
tinued on tbe pedestal and command
ded Burns and his colleagues to come
down. ThiB they refused to do, and
the clfisers thereupon
DRAGGED THEM DOWN BY FORCE
and drove them from tbe pedestal.
It was evident tbat Burns expected
that the application of force to him
would precipitate n riot, and it was
also apparent that the officers imme
diately engaged in removing the ora
tors feared an attack. But the men
composing tbe mob were not yet in
fighting humor, and the mob con
tOLted itself for the time by booting
tbe policoand smothering them with
flour, dirt and garbage. The officers
behaved admirably under this abuse
aid showed no resentment. After
their ejection neither Mr. Burns nor
any of his colleagues made any fur
ther attempts to get back. They at
once left the scene and proceeded to
tbe Reform Club building. They
mounted tbe steps, pointed to the
doors and windows, and bitterly de
nounced the inmates. This looked
like an attempt lo set tbe mob oa tbe
building. The mob was exciUd, but
not np to the point of violence vet.
Burns and bis colls agnee, seeing this,
vacated the Reform Club steps and
proceeded to the Carllora Club, where
they repeated their tactics. By this
MOB WAS TREMENDOUS
in numbers and verging on despera
tion. Stories of what the police had
said and done at the Nelson column
had been circulated from mouth to
mouth and exaggerated with every
repetition until tbe "starving me
chaaics" were convinced that the au
thorities had actually dared them to
a conflict. Such fire as was ready for
ignition and within touching distance
was inflamed by the speejhes deliv
ered on the Cailttju Club't steps. The
mob was split up into many di
visions by being forced do mi tbe dif
ferent streets by the prvrure from
Trafalgar Square to get nrer tbe oc
currences at the cluh-hon-es, and the
various divisions started otf hooting,
howline and challenging die authori
ties. The invaded etrtnts were at
once abandoned to tbe ricters, wbo,
finding themselves no longer opposed,
vented their ill will ayiiinpt well
housed people and rga'nst toe clubs
by stoning the dwellings and club
houses along tbe way.
At the time of closing these dis
patches all tbat part of tbe city in tbe
neighborhood of the National Gallery,
Carleton Club and Reform Club is in
possession c f the mob. Several faction
fights have already taken place among
the rioters and
A FVBI0US MO 11
is now (7 o'clock p.ra ) marching
through Su James street and Picca
dilly on its way to Hyde Park to botd
a meeting. Toe mob is cursing tbe
authorities, attacking shops, sacking
sn'oons, getting drunk and smashing
windows. On its way to Hyde Park
the front of the rn' b ivaia an etlott to
enter the War Office but turned away
when the sentinel at tbe entrance
confronted tbe intrudars with his bar
onet. Conspicuous among the build
ings attacked by the mob was tbat oc
supied by tbe Devonshire Club and
that occupied as a residence by Mr.
Arnold Morley, the newly appointed
Patronage Secretary. The police
along tbe route to Hyde Park were
brushed ont of the way by the rioters
as so many men ol staw, and many
of tbe cllicers were terribly whipped
f r their inter firence.
Tbe mob continued its work cf de
struction until a late hour. Hundreds
of shops were sacked and many pri
vate bouses were pillaged. The police
were powerless, and the mob held full
away unt l they dispersed of thei'own
accord. Tbe mob was thoroughly En
glish. It made frightful deiuonsirationp,
was not resisted, and went to bed at
the usual time. According 1 1 later
estimatsa 15,000 persons engaged in
the Trafalgar Square demonetratioa.
Two-thirds of tae crowd were bona
fide unemployed workingmen. The
remalder were Socialists. At midnight
quiet prevailed throughout the city.
