. The Wer Department will, of course,
Indorse tho prompt action of Col.
Mclntoab, who intervened his "regu
lators" to prevent further riot and
. bloodshed at Laredo, Tex., on Thurs
day. Fivo killed and ten wounded in
one day ought to bo enough to satisfy
eten Mexican cutthroats and cow
boys. It is rumored that Messrs. John
Overton, J. 0. Neeley and Napoleon
Hill, who are members of the Water
Committee, acting directly by virtue
of a commission' from the Tax
ing District government, now that they
are announced to the public as appli
cants with other citizens for a charter
for a new water company, will resign
from tho committee to-day.
Tin conduct of the Executive Com
mittee of the Knights of Labor in
East St. Louis yesterday was quite in
keeping with the good sense mani
fested by Mr. Powderly and his cor
laborers of tho national council. To
them it is wholly due that there was
not more bloodshed, and that to-night
the rioters are dispersed and at their
homes, and that peace prevails. It
should be constantly kept in view
that tho Knight of Labor are for
peace and the safety of property.
Watebino stock is bad enough, but
sometimes tho men who have the
greed of gold upon them, the craze for
wealth, issuo bonds besides, and thus
often make tho people pay dividends
three, fivo and even twenty times
over on the original cost of great en
terprises. This is the way the poor
man is kept poor, and this is the way
we' are making savages who, in the
large cities, are muttering the thunder
that, sorao day, unless a remedy is
applied, will break with destructive
effect to life and property. .
The Marquis of Salisbury is anx
ious to profit by the disaffection
among the English Liberals, and with
them form n coalition or hermaphro
dite Ministry, but neither the
Marquis of Hartington nor Mr.
Chamberlain w 11 consent to
it. The disaffected Liberals only dis
agree with Mr. Gladstone upon the
heme rule question, and do not pro
pose to give up theircherished princi
ples and make common cause with
their political enemies against their
political friends to an extent involving
a continuance) of the Gladstone min
istry and the life of their party.
Tue murder of six men and one
woman in East St. Lou's yesterday is
a most deplorable episode of the strikes
that have prevailed there and there
abouts for several weeksw .Xmm .'a.
result of want of patience and
the steadiness and nerve that
comes of discipline, and is found
only in well-drilled and regular
soldiers. There is nothing to pulliate
it, and tho deputy sheriffs who, obey
ing an impulse of mingled apprehen
sion and resentment, fired upon the
taunting and jeering mob, will find it
difficult to satisfy the law that they
are not responsible for the lives lost by
their very rash act.
The debate upon the measure for
home rule, introduced in the Houso
of Commons Thursday by Mr. Glad
stone, was continued yesterday
with . more or less of ran
corous bitterness, the Marquis of
Hartington and Mr. Chamberlain,
both of them disaffected Liberals,
being among tho conspicuous speak
ers. There was something like inter
est manifested in what the "noble
Marquis" had to say, but Mr. Cham
berlain was very coldly received. Mr.
Healy of tho Irish Nationalists made
a very fair speech in answer to
the latter, and successfully com
bated his scheme as impracticable.
The debate will be closed on Monday,
when the hill will pass to a second
reading. Mr. Gladstone seems to be
full of courage, as if he felt sure of a
To ttik prevalently dishonest prac
tice of watering stock much, if
not all, of the discontent among the
laborers of the country is directly due.
To pay required dividends upon such
stock the public is robbed in the form
of heavy tariffs on freight and passage
and the workingman is cut down to
starvation wagos. - To put a stop
to this every legislature should
make it a felony pun
ishable by line and imprisonment for
any corporation to issue a certificate of
stock or a bond that does not represent
actual labor, the vouchers for which
ought to be kept on file as part of the
assets of such company. It is simply
robbery for a man to put forth for cir
culation on the Exchanges a bond or
certificate of stock that really repre

Why should railroad or other com
panies? From a telegraphic dispatch from
New York in another' column it will
be seen that the law authorities of that
city have been put in possession of
evidence to convict all the Alder
men of tho present board of bar
gain and sale and corruption,
and District Attorney Martin says
those also of other years of bribery
and corruption. In view of this
avowal many of the aldermen and cx
aldermen have fled from the city,
and their whereabouts can only
be guessed at. The public
owes this information chiefly
to ei-Alderman Waite, formerly
owner of the Brevoort House.
Upon his confession Mr. Rich
mond, president of tliu Broadway

day. It looks as if a worse than
Tweed ring will in time be uncovered,
and many now honorable names be
covered with indelible disgrace. The
greed of gain is at the bottom of it all ;

SCENES OF THE WILDEST EX
CITEMENT AND CONFUSION.

Details of One of the Most Unfor
tunate Incidents of the
8t. L'f is, Mo., April 9 Ever eince
the railroad employes in Eat-t bt.
Louis craved work, io support of the
rriking Knight cf Labor on the
Gould Southwestern system, rumors
of i iota and bloodshed have daily
gai ed circnlation, but until to-day no
tenons conflict has occurred between
thfm and the repnty theriffs and
U cited fttatea Marsha's stationed in
the yards to protect the companies'
employes and property. The County
Sheriff has sworn in numerous depu
ties, and upon a veral occasions has
brought to that city bodies of armed
men to eupprejs an anticipated attack
upon the ia lrcad-yaids and their pro
tectors. Upon one occasion only, how
ever, has the presence of these men
been reilly needed, and the railroad a
have, with some few exceptions, but
generally with e i(?ht interference,
done their usual busites'. To-day
opened with but lit;le prospect of seri
ous trouble, a'lhough some of the
strikers intimated that the roado
would tied it lets easy to tun their
trains than they had 'anticipated, and
early in the morning the yardd pie
aimed AN ANIM TKD ICE.NK.
Switch engints were running back
ward and forward making up trains,
the platform men were busy loading
and unloading frtight, and trains were
arriving and departing without any
interference from the tt'ikers. This
conditirn of affairs continued until
noon, and it was thought taut the day
would pass without any demonstra
tion by tha striker.', and that it would
be recorded as one of the quittist
since the strike was begun. At that
hour, however, the trouble which
afterwards grew to such alarming pro
portions beuan. A number of strikers,
without apparently having formed any
preconceit:d p'ai, congregated at the
relay depot, and began a discussioD of
the general situation. As time passed
their number was augmented until
the original knot of men increased to
fully 200. The discussion became
mora animated and the crowd more
demonstrative, until same one pro
posed that they go to the Louisville
and Nashville yards and drive out the
men employed there. The cry of
"on to the sashvillb yabds I"
was caught by tee crowd and they
alvanded; ai they proceeded their
numbers apa'n increased, some join
ii g the mob simply as spectators,
while others were in fall tympathy
with the movement, until from 3 0 to
400 were advancing UiVFttlftbe y4n'.
Arriving tbeie they swarmed into the
jards and persuaded the men at work
to dsrt their pojte. The crowd re
main d in .the yards for some time,
and although considerable excitement
prevailed no violence was re-oited to.
Just at this time, however, a Louis
ville and Nashville freight train was
slowly passing, guarded by eight Deputy-Sheriffs
aimed with Winchester
rifles. In the meantime, crowds of
men, women and children had congre
gated on Broadway, where the Louis
ville and Nashville tracks cross tbe
street, and upon the Broadway bridge,
which spanu the Cahokia creek, and
in the open space to the east of
(he bridge. Just as tbe train reached
the Broadway crossing, tbe trouble
began. The crowd on the bridge began
to yell and jeer at the officers and it is
averted stones were thrown which
(truck two or thrtte of them, and it ia
also said that a pistol was discharged.
The denudes immediately leveled
thtir rifles and fired two volleys into
the crowd on the bridge with fatal
FOUR HEN BEING KILLED
and one woman mortally wounded.
The dead are Patrick Driecoll, a Wa
bash section band, not a striker; Oh
car Washington, a painter, not a
striker; John Bonner, coal miner, nr t
a striker, aid Major Kychman, a mill
employe, not a striker. Mrs. Ffeiffer,
said to be the wife of a itriker, was
shot in the back and mortally wound
ed. The greatest excitement imme
diately prevailed and pandemonium
reigned. The crowd fled in every di
rection, and when tbe deputies real
ize 1 how feaiful was the result, of their
fire sought means of escape
by rushing for the bridge, with a
view of fleeing to this city. At the ap
proach and just at the bridge tower on
the EaBt Side they were met by Mayor
Joyce, City Clerk Canty and a third
man who seized the deputiet',gans and
endeavoied to turn them back. One
of the deputies, in bis terror, fi-ed
npon the trio, ki ling a man named C.
E. Thompson, who stood between
Joyce and Canty. Some fh'jtj were
fired by'the remaining depu iesat the
approaching strikers, and all started
over the bridg). Tbe tcane on the
bridge was one of
WILDEST CONFUSION AND EXCITEMENT.
Coal teams loaded mid other teams
with wagons were gallopirg westward
an 1 shouting to all pedes rians aid
ttamttersto turn back. Women and
men on foot were running toward the
city and waving back all they met,
while immediately behind came the
deputies, pursued by the vaDguard of
the crowd from East St. Louise One of
the frightened guards threw bis gun
into the river, while another hid his
weapon in a waon that was in full
retreat. On arriving in this city tbe
deputies went at once to the Chest
nut Street Police FUtion, where, a'ter
statins the lac's cf the shooting, they
surrendered to tbe sergeant, and were
taken to th9 Feur Court?, where they
were placed in custody, aftir giving
the following names: P.O. Hewlett,
John liogue, Sam Jones, John F.
Williams, G. Luster, Stewart Martin,
Georga Marnell and W. F. Laird.
Some of the deputies who failed to
escape with those who fled to this
city were chased by the crowd itt
the freight warehouse and e (Hoes of
the Louisville and Na hville. The
warehouse, was surrouuded by an ira
mi nss crowd, who hooted and yell"',
and ored the men t attack the
stronghold and drive the deputies
out. Men went amoDg the crowdi
urging othtrs to procure arms and
shoot all tbe deputies they oonld find.
Some of the deputies, watching their
opportunity, slipped out and worked
their way among the freight car? nn
observed. A Louisville and Nash
ville fnight car backed dewn along
side tbe platfcrm and took away tbe
other 1 1 a plate of safety. Two were
sighted by the strikers, who na 1 pro
cured arms, and were chased under
tbe bridge. One of them was canght
in front of Tony's bouss on the levee
and waa beaten to death by tbe mob.
Another waa reported to have been
shot as be was escaping nnder the ap
proach to the bridge. The other dep
uties escaped unharmed.
THE IXCITID MOB.
About half an hour after the ehoo'.
ing ao excited, angry mob gathered in
the square between the City Hall at d
the police station. A man named
r Dwyer, a gambler, and in no way con
nected with tbe strike, became ti e
center of a crowd, whi loudly cheered
incendiary statements which' he utter
ed. He urged the men to "bang and
kill, and I was in the midst of an ap
peal to the mob to follow him to the
Ohio and Miesiis'ppi depot to ''hunt
for deputy Bber.ffa," when John
W. Hays, a member of the General
Executive Committee of tbe Knight
of Labor; Martin O'Neil.and Knights
cf Labor Brown arrived upon the
scene from this side. Mr. Brown,
who tiavels with the general board in
the ca ac:ty of Knights of Labor
orator and lecturer, mounted the stairs
leading to the police station nod
yelled to the mob for attention, but
the infuriated men answered .him
with, "Hang the cures," "Kill them."
Mr. Hays, who waa standing at
Biown's side, turned to a prominent
kaigbtand aeked himto introduce Mr.
Brown to the mob as tbe representa
tive of tbe General Executive Coin
mitte. The men replied, io a frightened
"if i do they'll hano me."
Brown turned oa him and said:
"Yes; if you don't they ou.bt ti
hang you." Tiler, turning to the mob,
which kept up toe cry to kill, lian
and burn, Brown began an impaa
eionel appeal for tew and order, and
by the sheer force of bis ea'Destnu-s
rivett-d the attention of tbe crowd, but
only f ir a few nomeuts at a time, f jr
ihey would break away from the spi ll
cf bis eU queues and take up their r -volutionary
yells. He laid: "Men
and brothers, f r God's sake keep
quiet; I implore you, in the name if
humanity, in the name of the grent
orde-r of the Knights of Labor, in the
name of every .'aw, both of your order
and your country, restrain yourselves;
do no vidence; remember tnai you
are our sworn brothers; do not forget
that you are knights and that vou are
pledged to obey tl e law of the order
and tbe command of your commit
tees." At this point Dwyer broke in,
"Yes; why don't you talk for Jay
Gould and be done with it. They
shot our men down in cold blood, aud
you 88 It us to be quint. I lay nacg
them, harg them." The crowd took
up the word, crying
"BURN, KILL AND 8IIOOT."
Brown pointed his floger at Dwyer
and asked him: "Are you a Knight
of Labor?" Dwyer drdired the ques
tion and yelled on, "Kill the brut e!"
"Are yon a Knight of Labor,
Jack?" said Brown.
"No," answered Dwyer, "but I tin
with them in everything, you can
"I knew that you were rot a knight,"
said Brdwn. . "I know that no knight
would talk as jou do. Again, broth
ers, I appeal to you be calm and dis
perse to your homes. If you will not
obey our laws, remember that you
are foriworn ; that yon are no
longer Knights of Labor. Brothers,
I beg of you do nothing rash.
What, oh, what will tbe knights of
the country thing of you? Ob, what
will the whole world think of our
great order? Don't forget bow hard
we worked to build up our organiza
tion. Ob, do not tear it down in ruins
by one rash act. Men who inci'e you
to strife are not true Knights of Labor.
: hey are worse than the delect ves of
the railroads, who are trying to bunt
you down. Shun them, shun them as
you wcu'd a murderer."
WHILE BBOWH WAS SPEAKING
Committeeman Hays walked excitedly
np and down the p'a'f orm, exclaiming
in a despairing manner: "Oh, my
God, my God, I would this had not
happened." His eyes were watery
he waa almost crying and when he
addressed the mob after Brown's
harangue his emotions choked him
sevarel times, and he was obliged to
pause for utterance. Hays's speech
was of the same tenor as Brown's, as
was aleo that of Martin O'Neill, who
followed Havs. Casper Heep, another
prominent Knight of Labor, who had
arrived ia the meantime, was busy in
the crowd trying upon the more ex
cited individuals the arguments which
the committeemen were urging fiora
the platform. After a while tbe tem
per of the mob cooled down some
what and they dispersed, not, however,
wholly pacified, many of them threat
ening to avenge the deaths caused by
after his encounter with the depu i"8
on the bridge, when he attempted Io
sne t them in their flight, went
through tbe excited crowds to his
office. He attempted to calm
the men, but found it useless
Tbe streets and sidewalks were
b'ocked with men, women and
children, who rushed in every direc
tion at tvery indicatioa of trouble.
Reaching bis office about an hour
after the shooting, he at once issued a
proclamation to clofe all ealojns and
warning women aid minors to keep
off the streets. Hewajseen in com
pany with Messrs. Bailey and Hays
of the Executive- Committae of the
Knights of Labor, who were urging
him to do all in his power to calm the
men. He said that he had notified
the Governor two weeks ago that he
could do nothing and that he was

after arming themselves, announced
tbuir intention of attackiut the depu

QUIET AT EAST BT. LOUIS.
The situation in East St. Louis, so
f ir is can be ascertained at midnight,
baa been pretty quiet. Coinpirnlively
f'W people were on the streets after
dark, and ottly here and there stntll
knots of men congregated and dis
cussed the events of the day. Later
n the evening two companies of mi
litia, ' one from Decatur and
one from Nashville, ID., catne
in and weie assigned to quarters.
Still later a good dod of excitement
wa caused by the discovery of fire in
a car loided with hay in the Louisville
and Najhville yards, but no damage
was done beyond tbe burning of the
cir. About 11 o'clock y fiie bioke
out in the Cairo Short Linn yard at
tbe lower end of the inland, and
meiiger reports from that locality at
midu ght says three or four cars were
burned, but no other damage was
ione. Two fire engines ami a
Babcock extinguisher were pent
over from here soon after
the fire in the Louisville and Nssb
vijle yards, and it was through their
assistance that no more property was
destroyed. ' Three more miliiia com
panies from Springfield and one f mm
Carlinville came in about midnight.
The Louisville and Nashville freight
Louse is now guaded by troops, and
a company wid no doubt be sent to
the Ctiro Shdrt Lin.
FFKIOUT CARS BURNED.
Three Cairo Short Line and four
Louisville and Nashville freight cars
were burned in the rai'rosd yards in
Ea t St. Louis to-night. It is thought
they Wc-ro set on fire by the strikers
in revenge for to-day's troubles. It is
row stated tbat the Lonsville and
Nashville depot is burning. Tlire
fire engines have been sent from this
city to aid in tubduing the fire.
A third fire started in the Cairo
Short Line premises about 1 o'clock,
and a report suva the murium' mid car
,phops are burning, but noietiiiite in-
lorniatiou as io tins mis yet reae-iieu
here. There is also a report that the
Little Rolling Mill, a mile or more
south of tbe Cairo Short Line, is on
fire, but this is not verified at 2 o'clock
ANOTHER MOVE IN TBE STRIKE.
From certain signs and symptom!
it has been evident that during the
last few days another move iu tbe
great et'iks was 1 eiDg planned by tbe
General Executive Board ad its as
sociates. 'I t a', the key of this move is
the alre.tdy much raro'cd question of
the coal supply is terribly ceitoin now
that the bulk of the Knights employed
by the Gould system are out snd tl.at
the-e ia littls hope cf securing co
operation from the engineers. A blow
it the source of supply 'that furnish
the nio'ivd power itself is suggested.
The shutting off of the coal supply
that caused so much com ter nation in
St. Loni" a short tin.e azo was pr b
ab'y an incident of tho strike rather
ihan the result c f a preconcerted ide a,
fur an attempt was not on'y made to
stop coal, but everything ehe as well,
from ere sing the river. The reason
why the embargo on coal was raised
was in the shapo of the following,
which aa ganeial'y circulated among
tbe strike ra at St. Louis:
"STRIKERS BOOMING GOULD'S COAL COM
PANY." By shutting off the East St. Louis
coal supply lio n all routes except the
Wabasb, which is protected by United
States marshals, and stopping team
steis from haiilinir coal f'Oiu other
yards, the strikers have driven an im
mense trade to the Wabasb tracks,
wher Jay Gould's company is reap
ing a harvest."
Tbe Executive Committees then or
dered the Knights cot to interfere
with the moveme-nt of coal, and the
blockade waa raised. The present
plan of the strikers which has been
decided npon aims firet at t'ie Eds
worth mine, owned by Jay Gould's
company, and employs a very large
number of rninrs at . MouU Olive,
Staunton and Warden, where tbe
shads are located. A great portion of
these are Knights of Labor. To their
assembly word has been sent to make,
upon application, a demand upon the
company to cease to 1 ad coal fur the
