Before leaving he explained the
strike was brought about by the dis

the recently formed Stockton lodge of
machinists. When asked for a reason
for discharging the men the manage

The officials of the International

strike in case the California wage
scale is not paid. It is believed In this
city that no drastic measures will be
necessary in Portland.
The local brewery workers have jiTst
learned that in the settlement of the
Rochester, N. V., strike the new con
tracts reduce working time for driv
ers, helpers and stablemen from ten to
nine hours, and for brewers and bot
tlers from nine to eight hours. Sun
day and holiday work is to be paid for

"The extraordinary expenses recently
incurred," said President Kruger of the
Philadelphia rapid transit company,
speaking of the corporation's losses in

HOLOCAUST OF OCKREIT
ONE OF WORST IN WORLD
Fear Maddened Crowd Finds
Only Door Nailed Up
The holocaust In the village of Ock
reit, Hungary, will stand as one of the
great disasters in the history of the
world. In point of loss of life it does
not rank with the Ring theater fire in
Vienna, December 8, 1881, when nearly
1,000 persons lost their lives. Many
were burned to death in the disaster of
29 years ago, but the larger number
were suffocated and some died in the
crush at the exits, says the Washington
Star. The doors were built so that they
opened inward, and when the people
jammed against them they could not be
opened, and the firemen coming to their
rescue were compelled to chop into the
crowd, and thus several persons were
slain in the very act of loosing those
behind them. \u25a0 .
The Hungarian catastrophe was more
like the charity bazaar fire in Paris,
May 4, 1897, in that the structure was
decorated with dried branches of trees
and other light, • tinderlike trimmings.
At the charity bazaar fire, in which 150'
people were killed, the hall .became a
mass of flames, almost instantly after
the first flash, being filled with the thin
nest of draperies festooned in a manner
to invite disaster.: The blockade at the
exits cost many lives.
A peculiar, element of horror enters
into the Hungarian catastrophe. The
single door which afforded entrance and
exit had been nailed up after the hall
was filled in order to prevent the ad
mission of any of those who were left
clamoring outside.: .Thus when the
flames started there . was no way out
for the fear maddened people. Conse
quently the percentage of death was
probably/ greater in this instance than
In any other known catastrophe of mod

PLAN PARADE FOR
RAISIN DAY FETE
Fresno Workers Arrange for
New Carnival Feature on ,
Night of Celebration
Fraternal Orders, Militia, Police
and Fire.men to March
LSpecial Dispatch to The Call]
FRESXO, April 21. — The carnival
committee held its second meeting this
morning at Raisin day . headquarters
and formulated more plans for the cele
bration in this city April 30.
In addition to having large repre
sentations from the various fraternal
orders in the parade on thatn ight, the
two local militia companies will.be in
line, a battalion of police and the fire
department. There will also be a big
representation from the Chinese and
Japanese residing in this city. Many
automobile owners have already signi
fied their willingness to decorate. their
machines for theparade. \ >
Owing to the fact that the majority
of the stores will not close until 9
o'clock the parade will not be held un
til after- that hour, but before and after
that time the merry makers will revel,
care free, in the streets of the city.
VOTIXG FOR CARNIVAL QUEEN'
The voting contest for the carnival
queen has started, but' as the ballots
were issued only this evening no can
didate has yet entered the race. The
voting will start in earnest tomorrow
and will be brought to a close Tuesday
Alden Anderson, Mayor Rowell and M.
F. Tarpey. have been asked to deliver
addresses in this city on Raisin day,
and it is probable that they will do so.
An effrt is also being made by A.
G. Wahlberg, sperintendent of music
in the Fresno schools, to have a mon
ster chorus of school children sing in
the Courthouse park on- the afternoon
of Raisin day.
The Japanese have expressed their
willingness to donate fireworks for
Raisin day, and in addition to day
and night displays at the park they
will have a quantity of night fireworks
in the parade.
RANCHERS TO PROVIDE FLOATS
The carnival committee has ad
dressed letters to ranchers living in
the vicinity of Fresno asking them to
prepare floats symbolical of the raisin
industry for the parade. One will rep
resent a hauling of raisins to the
packing- houses, while others will rep
resent raisins in different stages of
preparation for the market.
Fred Shoup of the Southern Pacific,
who is in Fresno to assist the Raisin
day celebration, received a letter today
from J. R. Wilson of the Illinois Cen
tral, in which he stated that J. P.
Gillette of the New York Herald, who
was in San Francisco on a pleasure
trip, would come to Fresno and send
a number of articles on Raisin day
to his paper. _ '
Reports have been received from the
two boosting" committees .which were
sent to San Francisco and Los Angeles,
and both have had great success. The
Los Angeles committee was obliged
to telegraph this afternoon for more
literature, having distributed 25,000
folders in 24 hours.
Boosters Visit Stores
Never was a day more diligently
spent than yesterday when the five
members" of the Raisin day boosters'
committee waged their campaign
through th 3 city. Early in the morning
the committee met at the ferry build
ing and set out for the different por
tions of the city assigned to them in
automobiles, which were provided by
business firms. East, west, north and
south thi machines sped, stopping every
few minutes while a store was invaded
and a grocer or a baker added to the
list of Raisin day boosters.
Noon time came and the committee
men paused at the most convenient
restaurant in their particular district
just long enough for a meager lunch
eon. The work was resumed and until
darkness the committee visited store
after store. Raisin day posters, raisin
bread stickers and pamphlets telling of
the raisin industry were .distributed.
When the tired workers from Fresno
gathered at the Manx hotel before din
ner it was estimated that more than
300 retail stores had been visited. The
supply of literature" and lithographs
was sadly diminished and the members
of the committee, though extremely
weary, were happy. The day was a
Chairman H. H: Holland, in telling of
the hours of toil, remarked that every
one had seemed to appreciate the ef
forts of the boosters^
Holland said that the only objection
met with was the fact that the com
mittee had not made the rounds a little
sooner so as to give the merchants a
chance to lay in a stock of raisins.
Today the committee will be in Oak
land at 10-o'clock. An automobile tour
of tha bay cities will be made,- and in
the evening the boosters will return to
Fresno :to report the success of the
work that has been done.
MEXICOOWES EAGLE ON
FLAG TO AZTEC TRIBES
Capital Located for Wanderers
by-Monarch of Air
The meaning and origin of the eagle
device on the Mexican flag is explained
as follows by Jose Dosal, Mexican con
sul to Kansas City, says the' St. Louis
"Only a few hundred years after the
Christian era the Aztec tribes started
on a long Journey south from some
point, probably now In the United
States. They traveled year after year,
stopping a season at a time to cultivate
crops. Finally they arrived in the beau
tiful valley of Mexico.
"At a spot' not far from : the present
site of the capital the Aztec emperor
consulted the : astrologers and was j told
to follow the flight of the first eagle
seen from the camp to its first resting
place and there build the city. , v y
"One day an eagle was sighted, scouts
were detailed to. follow the bird. and. in
the middle of Lake Texcoco they saw it
light on a* cactus growing on an island.
When the scouts approached they, saw
it held' in its^talons a snake, which it
was devouring. v ...
"The "device yof an eagle eating a
snake, profile, was adopted as the Aztec
coat of arms; by; Montezuma : 11. The
"Mexican ';; republic } likewise adopted the
eagle and the "snake to use on its flag,
making the picture' face view.; The
present flag of Mexico was adopted by
the ; Cura Miguel Hidalgo y; Costello at
11 o'clock sp. m., September, 15.. 1810.
There ls;a story told to the effect;that
the colors were suggested by an Italian
in the rebel; army,: who made: them: the
same as those of his native country." \u25a0 |

"FIRING" WITH FIRE
In a desperate effort to take the life
of'his foreman to avenge his discharge
of the day before, Cardinale Simone, a
Sicilian, last night emptied the five
chambers of his revolver at Rafael
Balza at the corner of Powell street
and Broadway, two or the shots finding
lodgment in the leg and groin of Anto

sought to save his brother from death.
The wounded youth -was hurried to
the emergency hospital. He will prob
ably recover. '
Following his unsuccessful attempt
to kill Balza, Simone fled the scene. •
The two brothers were on their way
to night school when the attack was
made. . They had left their home at 53
Vernon place and as they approached
the corner of Powell street and Broad
way they met Simone. .Rafael recog
nized the man and greeted him. For
answer Simone drew a revolver.
"I'll show you- how a Sicilian avenges

U.S. DOGS CALLED
OFF COTTON RING
NEW YORK. April 21.— The sudden
adjournment today of the federal in
quiry board into the alleged cotton
pool sent a thrill of hope to certain
quarters of the financial district that
perhaps the government had decided to
calloff the investigation.
Clark McKercher. assistant attorney
general, soon dispelled that hope by an
nouncing that other witnesses were to
be called at further grand jury ses
James Patten of Chicago banged his
fist on an old -table of a downtown
brokerage office this afternoon and said
he. was not in "this game to squeeze
any one" and further that there would
be no corner in cotton. Patten said:
"A great deal has been printed to the
effect that Frank Hayne, W. P. Brown,
F. Scales and myself. are engaged in a
conspiracy to corner, the May crop of
cotton. No more ridiculous statement
was ever made. Why, there are 2,000,000
bales of May cotton in sight. At $75 a
bale it would require $150,000,000 to
maintain a corner. It is a matter of
history that no man has ever succeeded
in cornering a cotton crop."
