First in the History of Chicago
CHICAGO, Sept. 28, -After an all night
session, the operating employes of the
South Side Elevated railroad (the Alley
L) struck at 5 o'clock this morning, be
cause of the refusal of the company to
grant a horizontal increase of 25 cent.
per man for a 10-hour day. The deci
sion to strike came after a committee
ad failed to secure any satisfactory re
sponse to an ultimatum sent to Presi
dbft Leslie Carter's home at 3 o'clock
Over 800 meni are gut. The road, how
ever, is not tied up, for as soon as the
potce had been given to strike, the com
pany pressed into service all the extra
men they could get hold of, and the
trains are now running with a good deal
of regularity. -
The strike is the first in the history oi

Upon Reaching Auburn As

When Being Stripped of His Ciothes
For a Convict Giarb He Cried and
Yelled In the Most Abject 3anner.
Sends 3essage to His Father.
AUBURN, N. Y., Sept. 27.-Czolgosz,
President McKinley's murderer, in the
custody of Sherif' Caldwell of Erie
county and 21 deputies, arrived in Au
burn this morning. The prison is only
about 50 yards from the depot.
Awaiting the arrival of the train there
was a crowd of about 200 people. Either
for feer of the crowd, which was not
very demonstrative, or from sight of
the prison, Czolgosz's legs gave out and
two deputy sheriffs were compell'ed to
practically carry the man into prison.
Inside the gate his condition became
worse, and he was dragged up the stairs
and into the main hall. He was placed
in a sitting position on the bench while
the handcuffs were being removed, but
he fell over and moaned and groaned,
evincing the most abject terror. As
soon as the handcuffs were unlocked the
man was dragged into the principal
keeper's office. As in the case of all
prisoners the officers immediately pro
ceeded to strip him and put on a new
suit of clothes.
Daripg this operation Czolgosz cried
and yelled, making the prison corridors
echo with evidence of his terror. The
prison physician, Dr. John Gerin, ex
amined the man and ordered his re
moval to the cell in the condemned row,
which he will occupy until he is taken
to the electric chair. The doctor de
clared that the man wes suffering from
fright and terror, but said that he was
shamming to some extent.
The collapse of the murderer was a
surprise to every one. Enroute from
Buffalo he showed no indication of
breaking down. He ate neartily of
sandwicnes and smoked cigars when
not eating. He talked some and ex.
pressed regret for his crime. He said:
"I am especially sorry for Mrs. Mc.
He reiterated his former staterent
that he had had no accomplices and de
clared that he never had heard of the
man under arrest in St. Louis, who
claimed to have tied the handkerchief
over his hand, concealing the pistol
with which the president was shot. He
says the handkerchief was not tied.
He went behind the Temple of Music,
arranged the handkerchief so as to hide
the weapon, and then took his place in
the crowd. By Jailer Mitchell he sent
this message to his father:
"Tell him I am sorry I left such a bad
name for him."

NEW YORK, Sept. 25.-The new twin
screw steamer Kron Prinz Wilhelm ar
rived in port today. She left Bremen
on Sept. 17 and Southampton and Cher
bourg on Sept. 1l. From the time of
leaving Cherbourg harbor the huge
steamer plunged into head seas with
heavy southwesterly gales.
The sea broke over the steamer's bow,
smshng the forward sails, stove in the
dekhouses and let the water in the for

smashed also. The weather was so
rough the steamer was obliged to run
under reduced speed for three days and
a half. The screws were reduced to 50
revolutions. The great steamer was
unble under these conditions to make
any. attempt at record breaking and
mc.st of the time only 9,500 horsepower
However, the speed increased when
the weather moderated, and on Sept. 23
she made 564 knots and the next day 575
knots, which the chief engineer clagned
to be the best day's run ever made on an

TO SECEDE FROM SYNOD.
Movement ot English Evangelical
NEW YORK, Sept. 27.-The English
Evangelical Luthern ministers, the con
f erence of~ whioh has just come to a
close in Christ church, Brooklyn, have
taken decisive steps to form an English
synod of churches to secede from the
present synod. The action taken by
the conference will affect 35 churches in
this and neighboring states.
A communication, signed by all the
pastors represented in the ministertum,
is to be sent to the Ret, Dr. George 0.
Has, president of the New York synod,
asking for a letter of dismissal from
that body and a certificate of character.
From the arguments of some of the se
cders it appeared that, whatever ao
tion is taken with regard to the com
munication by the New York synod, it
will not affect the determination of the
English to form a synod of their own.

Port-au-Prii. . ital. is-by
consent of all wi i' ia.l opportuni

the filthiest place in the world. The
town was laid out by the French, and
the streets are wide. It is only their
great width that makes them passa

dogs perform all the sanitary offices
for the town of Port-au-Prince save in
the rainy season, when a heavier storm
than usual comes to flush the open

live in an atmosphere of combined

laws of hygiene should produce chronic
The free and independent negro leads
the life that most nearly approaches
his ideal. They have a proverb in the
country that "only white men, black
women and asses work," and there is
truth in it. The black man lies around
all day sleeping in the sun. His utmost
effort Is to play dice or watch a cock
fight, but sleep Is his favorite occupa
tion, and he can do that better than
anything else. In the country dis
tricts the old plantations have long
since slipped back into the luxuriant
overgrowth of the forest. In town
any trading done is by the womeu and
by foreigners. Undisturbed by the
white man, to whom he is Insolent, the
town bred negro is pacific enough. The
only exertion demanded of him is to
avoid the attentions of the police.
Uncle Mingo and the Waiter.
Uncle Mingo was in town a day or
two ago. It had been a long time since
the old man had been to Savannah. and
be rambled over the streets all the
morning, impressed with the wonder
ful things he saw.
Naturally toward the midday be be

the eating houses for colored people, of
which there are several in the neigh
borhood of the Plant system depot, the
succulent piles of edibles in the win
dows offered too great a temptation to
be resisted. He entered the restaurant
and sat down to a table.
"All right, sab," said the affable
waiter, coming up. "Wot'll it be?"

A Tutor Who Maintained Ills Dignity.
Dr. Chilmers always had a high
sense of personal dignity. When a
young man, he was engaged as tutor in
a private family. His young lady pu
pils resented his strictness, and the
mother foolishly took sides with her
daughters. In petty spite whei com
pany was invited to the house young
Chalmers was shut out from the table,
and dinner was sent to his room.
He made no protest against the
treatment, but when it was attempted
again he told the servant he had order
ed a dinner at a neighboring town and
should need nothing. When this had
been done a few times, an explosion
came. The master of the house called
Chalmers to account for insulting his
family. Chalmers replied that he had
been insulted by banishment from the
table. The young teacher conquered
and ever after held his place as one of
the family at all social gatherings.
No Apparent Cause F~or Offense.
It was the third day out on an ocean

just getting acquainted. A lady who
bad made the trip many times lay com
fortably in her steamer chair, when
the pretty and stylishly clad daughter
of a newly rich family stopped near
her, and they drifted Into conversation.
Presently the lady bowed to a pale
faced man who walked by.
"Whc was that?" inquired the girl.
"That was Signor Slambangski, the
famous pianist," replied the lady, who
then went on to speak of the probable
performers at the inevitable concert at
the journey's end.
"Oh, are there any musicianers on

A VERY CURIOUS BIRD.
The One Young Mark Twain Sprung
Upon the Selentist.
Mark Twain's father was an ornithol
ogist. He had several friends who
were also enthusiasts on the subject of
birds. Whenever any one of them dis
covered a rara avis it was the custom
to have a consultation. Mark had been
a witness of several of these bird in
quests and had noted the delight the
old men .took in discussing a new
found specimen. One day it occurred
to him to provide the Uinnnibal orni
thologists with a real ciryas in the
form of a bird. Ile killed -, crow and
also a barnyard rooster. Plucking out
the tail feathers of both the crow and
the rooster, he substituted the rooster's
tail feathers for those of the crow, pro
ducing a unique effect. Wheni he had
the specimen nicely prepared. he went
to his father and, banding it to him.
"Here, father, is a very curious bird
I shot. I thought you would be inter
ested in it."
The old gentleman gazed upon the
specimen with astonishment. That
evening the ornithologists of Hannibal
were assembled in Mr. Clemens' par
lor. The rare specimen was put before
them. The discussion was long and
learned. The opinions expressed were
various. One thought the bird was an
offshoot of the bird of paradise fam
ily; others had equally ridiculous no
tions as to its ancestry. But there was
one who refused to be swerved by the
peculiarity of the bird's tail from the
judgment that it was of the crow fam
"Why,' just look here," he said, lift
Ing the bird by its tail feathers. He
got no further. The feathers came
out. There was a quick closing of a
door. Mr. Clemens started to leave
"Gentlemen," he said, "please excuse
me a few moments. I will see Samuel
fLrst and explain later."
