.Carrying 2u0,000 as a preliminary
appropriation for a site, the adminis

passed by the house. This action by

of the bill, sought to demonstrate that

MEET THE DEMANDS
Red Gross Hasn't Enoufji Funds
For Relief Work.
Columbus, O., April 10. Though the
aggregate of money received by the
Red Cros and Ohio flood relief com
mission Is above the $2,000,000 mark,
Red Cross officials declare It will not
meet the demands. The total In the
hands of the Red Cross Is about Jl,
300,000, and that In the flood relief
commission's charge Is a little more
than $543,000. Besides this Ohio flood
sufferers will have the $250,000 appro
priated by the legislature.
Just what share of the Red Cross
funds will be expended In rehabilitat
ing Ohio flood sufferers will .be deter
mined as tho work progresses. The
Red Cross funds must be used to alle
viate distress not only in Ohio, but
also in Indiana and other states. Th'e
greater share, no doubt, will be ex

The expenditure of the $230,000 is
wholly in the hands of dovernor Cox,
but he probably will act upon advice
of the flood commission. While sep
arate accounts are kept of the Red
Cross and commission funds, the Red
Cross will have general supervision of
both. It Is expected that first appro
priations for general rehabilitation
will be made soon after the commis

Buffalo, N. Y., April 10. Disorders
In the streetcar strike continue. In
spite of the urgent requests of Mayor
Fuhrmann and tho pleadings of the
chamber of commerce, which repre
nmts practically every business and
professional man In Buffalo, the offl
cere of the International Railway
company remain stubborn. They .re
fuse to abandon efforts to operate
cars until peace r-as been fully re
stored and to submit to arbitration.
As a result oMhls attitude of the com
pany it is clearly apparent .that It will
be necessary to summon additional
troops to guard the company's prop--erty.
There are 3,000 mlllflamen .now
The strikers have offered to return
to work at once' provided the company
will recognize their union and allow
the other differences to be settled by
arbitration later. Inasmuch as tho
strikers have-had decidedly the- beH
of the matter thus far, the authorities
believe that the company should take'
steps to meet the men half way.
The company claimed to havfe 1,500
trikebreakers ready for duty, and in
spite of th requests of the city offi
cials they attempted to move cars on
the Main street line. The result was
similar to that of the other days. The
mobs attacked the cars, drove off the
trikebreakers and beat them. The
troops charged the crowds and finally
drove them back.
Later another attempt was made,
and the result was more serious. A
mob attacked a car near the Niagara
street viaduct, and after stones had
been hurleu the militia charged. Soma
one began tiring, and the troops in
