Morning by a Notorious Local
And Before Midnight the Brutal
Assassin Was Hanging
From a Tree.
The Body Filled "With Bullets— Scenes
at tiie Storming of
Murder Followed by lynching.
Special to the Globe.
Detroit, Minn., June 23.— At 1 o'clock
this morning the inhabitants of the prosper
ous little city of Detroit were aroused by
the cry of murder, and it was soon learned
that the faithful chief of police, John
Convey, had been shot down by a ruffian
while performing his duty as an officer.
Some difficulty bad arisen between John
W. Kellibier, the murderer, and one Frank
Bonnet, both representing houses of ill
repute, and threats had been made. At the
hour stated both men chanced to meet at
the corner of the Masonic block and
were having a contest of words
when Officer Convey came up and requested
them to desist and leave for home. The
officer then started off a few paces, when
Kellehier, better known as Reddy, pulled a
revolver and shot Bennett, who dropped to
the ground unhurt. The officer sprung
toward Reddy only to meet his death by
A BULLET TIIKOUII THE HEART.
As soon as the two shots were fired
those who had witnessed the affray from
second story windows got to the scene as
quickly as psssible. Alarms were given
and men and teams were sent in every di
rection in search of the murderer, and at
3:30 he was captured in a grave three-quar
ters of a mile away by Johnny Boutell and
James Foster, both of whom were un
armed. He was immediately turned
over to Sheriff Pinney and his deputies,
who as quickly as possible, placed the
prisoner in a steel cell. All day long the
crowd though orderly has been crying for
revenge. Large crowds have already ar
rived from Perham, Frazee, Lake Park and
Audubon, and all adjoining country towns,
swelling the throng which at this hour is
calling for a rope.
THE MURDERED MAN
came from Rochester, Minn., about four
years ago, and was soon after elected chief
of police, a position which he has filled
most acceptedly and won the esteem of
every one in the place. At 7:30 p. in. the
tire bell began to ring, and the Lake Side
band with muffled drum followed by the
fire department in uniform soon marched
to Masonic hall where the remains under
charge of an undertaker were in keeping.
The first six of the fire company were ac
cepted as bearers and then with a dirge by
the band the column marched to the depot
with the remains which will leave for the
deceased's old home at Rochester at 3:30.
From early Jdusk the throng of people
kept growing larger and small groups might
be seen on every street corner and it was
evident that Reddy, the murderer of John
Convey, would not see the rising of another
sun. By taking position on the front steps
of the court house and looking down upon
the street there was seen but
A. BLACK MASS OF PEOPLE,
yet there was no noise or confusion. At 10
o'clock the city fire bell began to ring rap
idly and it was first thought a fire was rag
ing, but it was quickly noticeable that at
least 500 men, unmasked, » were marching
toward the court house and at 10:05 a ring
ing blow from a sledge descended upon
the rear door of the court house,
crushing the heavy panneled doors into
pieces. Then there was a rush into the
corridor, when' the mob was most forcibly
met by Sheriff Finney and his deputy,
George W. Taylor, who made a desperate
light for their prisoner. But the corridor
door was in the meantime crushed in and
the sheriff was carried in bodily to the room
next the jail apartments, where the keys to
the outer doors were secured, and an en
trance effected. Matches were lit and the
gleaming eyes of
THE WBETCH WITHIN
were plainly visible as he walked to and
fro with a face bleached to a death pallor.
He begged for the crowd to shoot him in
stead of putting that d — rope about
his neck. At this time a cry arose
from the mob that they did not have the
right key to the cell, and a raid was again
made on the sheriff and the cell keys de
manded, but lie said he did not know where
they were. Deputy Taylor was then
caught in the hall and carried in. Owing
to his resistance he was forced down and
all the keys in his possession taken from
him. The ones wanted being found, the
great doors were pulled open and one of
the party stepped into the cell and quickly
placed an inch-rope about the victim's neck,
and with a yell
THE ROPE WAS GRABBED
by about thirty men, who led the prisoner
at a terrible gate out of the building, when
a yell from 500 throats only frenzied the
crowd the more, and with shrieks
and cries the prisoner was taken
to the front of his own place
of abode, and in a twinkling one of the
men grabbed the end of the rope and
climbed the tree, placing the end over a
limb and throwing it down to the crowd
below, who quickly gave it a pull and in a
few seconds the body of Reddy, the noted
gambler and murderer, was hanging in the
air. The rope was then fastened to the
base of the large oak on which he hung, and
instantly shot after shot from large revolv
ers were fired into the then lifeless carcass.
The crowd then dispersed, except those who
went out to view the sight, which it is
hoped Detroit may never have occasion to
«f the people here is that justice has been
at last meted out to one of the most dan
gerous characters that has ever visited the
West. His coming to our midst has caused
tbe death of one of Detroit's most highly
respected citizens, whose - loss cannot.be
restored. He was a man with few, if any,
enemies, and his untimely death at the
hands of such a monster has caused the
(Treat excitement of to-day. John Convey
was 27 years old, fine looking, of a spot
less reputation, and was soon to be united
in marriage to a lady in the town of Como
rant. Reddy was 30 years of age, quite
tall, with a freckled face, red hair and
■lustache and weighed 230 pounds. He
claimed to have come fro m Brooklyn, N
V., where he has parents living.

SILLED HER IKADICER.
ft. Texas Woman Shoots a Deputy
Sheriff for Slander.
Special to th* Globe.
■y Denton, Tex,, June 23. — At 2:45 o'clock
yesterday afternoon five distinct pistol shots
: were heard on the square. N. B. Roberts,
r deputy sheriff, was sitting in front of Ball
& Poe's livery stable, when Mrs. Gid Liles
stepped up to him and said: "Mr. Roberts,;
you have i traduced : me and I want you to
retract, and if you don't you will be sorry
C_Q s^gg* \q^£z^^!^^^ j
for it." He answered that he could or j
would not do it, whereupon she drew a !
revolver and shot him live times, every shot
hitting him and three of them being fatal.
i It is rumored on the streets that Roberts
had openly stated that he had
criminal intercourse with her, which
she branded as a falsehood and several
weeks ago went in company with her hus
band to Roberts, asking him whether he had I
really said so. He did not deny having
said it at that time and the husband of the
woman that killed him then
ATTACKED HIM WITH A KNIFE,
intending to kill him, but was prevented by
bystanders. Since then the matter has
been brewing and growing worse, and when
the woman went to the stable to see him
yesterday, it seems that she wanted him to
sign papers to the effect that he bad
told falsehoods and he was not willing to
do this. Constable James Bill, who was
on the way to the stable, was stopped by
Gid Liles, the husband of the
woman, while she was talking to her victim
not over 100 yards distant, and when
she had done the deed she calmly handed
him the pistol and gave herself up. She
was asked why she did it, and she an
swered: "He traduced n:e and told lies
about me, and no man can do that and live.
1 tried to hit him about the region of the I
heart." She succeeded too effectually. The
coroner's verdict was that N. B. Roberts
came to his death by shots fired with a pis
tol in the hands of Leona Liles. The pre
liminary trial is set ",for next Wednesday.
In the meantime she is allowed to be at
home under guard.
Acted in Sclf-Defeusc.
New York, June 23.— the morning
of the 10th inst., when the brig Mary C.
Warner of Portland, Me., under command
of Capt. X. P. Wharton, was at sea, bound
for this port, a light occurred between the
first mate, James i\ Lewis, and a sailor
named Frank Yorkitcha. The litter stabbed
Lewis in the neck, killing him almost in
stantly. The man was at once put in irons
and a strong guard kept over him until the
arrival of the brig in this port this morning,
when he was banded over to the harbor
police. The remains of the mate were
buried at sea. The accused was arraigned
before United States Commissioner Shields,
where he testified in his own behalf that
the mate assaulted him first and after strik
ing him on the bead with a wooden belay
ing pin four times the pin broke and the
mate then went for an iron one, seeing
which defendant drew his knife and
stabbed Lewis under the right ear, killing
him instantly. Others of the seamen testi
fied as to the cruel conduct of the mate,
not only to the accused, but to all the
crew. They said that the vessel was short
handed, and that the accused acted with
great forbearance under the provocation
given and did not use the knife until he be
lieved his life to be in dancer. The com
missioner sent the accused before the grand
jury, and that body immediately discharged
him. : '-\~ '
Over 200 Poisoned.
Philadelphia, June 23. — A special
dispatch says: Exactly 214 people were
poisoned at last Thursday's picnic near
Flemington. N. J; Six of those persons
will probably die, and twenty are in a pre
carious condition. One of the physicians
in charge of the cases has examined the ice
cream cans and says there was not enough
sulphate of zinc about them to do any dam
age, that the symptoms are those of arsen
ical poisoning and from the fact that those
who first ate of the cream escaped, he is of
the opinion that the poison was put into
the cream by some one purposely. As a

York, Pa., June — John Hood, a
desperate colored character residing here,
came home drunk to-day and brutally abused
his wife. He was beating her with a chair
when Policeman George Powell, attracted
by the woman's cries, came to hand and
endeavored to arrest the negro. The latter
turned on the officer, who drew his revol
ver. A desperate hand to hand struggle
ensued and the officer gaining the mastery
over his assailant, shot him through the
heart. Officer Powell gave himself up.
They Mole a Yacht. '• , V,>-
Milwatjkee, June 23. — The case against
Charles Reed, John Maloney and Curtis
Reed, who stole the yacht Mamie from Ke
nosha while on a spree, and were over
hauled by the revenue cutter Andy Johnson
at Grand Haven, is exciting considerable at
tention in court circles. As the punish
ment for piracy is death, the district at
torney wants to prosecute the prisoners
under the state law for larceny, but the
owner of the yacht objects, as he thinks
the punishment for the latter crime is not
severe enough. District Attorney Will
iams has the case under consideration.

the vetoed measures being private pension
bills which originated in the senate. Among
the bills vetoed was one granting a pension
to Alfred Denny, whose record showed no

"Washington, June 23. — Mr. Morrison

upon which the debate occurred yesterday.
Mr. Reefl raised the question of considera

THE FIGHT FOR FEES.
Tbe Senate Send* the Anii-Attornev
Bill Back to Committee.
Washington, June 23. — In the senate
the Hawley motion was taken up to recon
sider the vote by which the senate passed
the bill prohibiting members of congress
from acting as attorneys of land grant rail
Mr. Beet resumed the floor and continued
his remarks against reconsideration. He de
nied that he had intended to injure anybody
by the introduction of the bill. If the senate
should agree to the motion to reconsider,
that would be the last of the bill. Mr. Beck
read Mr. Mitchell's amendments proposing- to
forbid members of congress from doing law
business for men who were managers of
banks or importers of foreign goods, or who
manufactured butter or oleomargarine, to
baoco or whisky. "If that is not taking a
lick at creation!" exclaimed Mr. Bsek.
He deprecated that sort of amendment,
but added that he bad often heard the
fable of the advice given 'to all
foxes by the fox whose tail had been cut off.
That ad-ice was that they should all have
their their tails cut off because his had been.
He thought the fable illustrated the case of
this amendment. It would be as reasonable
to say that because a man was punished for
criminally killing another man, therefore he
should be punished for killing a mouse or for
taking life of any kind. Mr. Beck did not
know whether Mr. Mitchell was the attorney
of the Northern Pacific road or not. Mr.
Beck had been informed that he was. He be
lieved that Mr. Mitchell bad a right to be
such. Railroad companies sought iho best
lawyers and had a right to them. Mr.
Mitchell warmly replied that he was
THE ATTORNEY OF NO RAILROAD.
He desired the senator from Kentucky (Mr.
Beck) to understand that he (Mr. Mitchell)
had never while in the senate been employed
by any railroad company to argue any case in
court or out. Ho was not now and had
not been for over a year the attorney of any
corporation whatever. He was representing
no corporation here. If a bill were to be
passed on the idea that every member of con
gress who was a lawyer was dishonest, with
the view of making him honest, then the bill
should be made to include matter indicated in
Mr. Mitchell's suggested amendment. Mr.
Mitchell asked Mr. Beck when anybody had
told him that he (Mr. Mitchell) had been at
torney for the Northern Pacific railroad. Mr.
Beck said he had been so told. The time did
not matter. He was glad to hear the senator
confess that he had resigned as attorney when
elected to the senate. Mr. Mitchell said he
was not in the confessional, but he had re
signed eight mouths before his election. He
(Mr. Mitchell) remembered a time when it had
been said in the newspapers that certain
members of congress were very zealous in
regard to certain whisky matters.
Mr. Beck— Oh, well, that was just simply a
lie, that's all there is about that. [Laughter.]
Mr. Mitchell had no doubt of that. Mr.
Evarts noticed that no disability had been
applied by Mr. Beck to any other profession
than the law. \ Ho characterized as
. "UNILATERAL" LAWYERS
who would be discriminated against. They
could only take a case from the side opposite
to the railroad. Mr. Beck said he was him
self a lawyer and would not place any indig
nity on the profession of the law. When
elected to congress, however, be found that
his public duties required all his time, not
being possessed of the transcendant abilities
that the senator from New York perhaps
possessed. The country believed that the
$5,000 a year derived by senators and repre
sentatives in congress entitled the peole to
their whole services, and if senators or rep
resentatives could not live on that
compensation they had no right to supple
ment it by taking fees from corporations,
whose interests wero adverse to those ;of
the people. Mr. Beck did not know what a
"unilateral lawyer was. He supposed that it
was a one-sided lawyer, not a "quadrilateral"
lawyer such as the senator from New York
supposed himself to be. * Mr. Sherman, taking
the floor, said the universal rule of the senate
was to grant reconsideration aimost as a mat
ter of course whenever asked for. Even
when the senate was almost a unit against a !
bill the vote for its reconsideration bad after
been unanimous. This bill met his hearty
approval. The criticisms made against it
jrere rather too toe. The motion to recon
sider having been brought to ; a vote was
agreed to yeas 31, nays 21. The only Repub
lican voting in the negative was Mr. Van
Wyck.' The Democrats voting in the affirma
tive were Messrs. Call, Gray, Payne, P uP h
and Hansom. Mr. Hawley then moved to
refer the bill to the judiciary committee Mr.
Vance called for the reading of the bill by
way of a final "farewell" to it. . : . [Laughter.]
Tho bill having been read Mr. Edmunds as
sured Mr. Vanco that ho should have the
pleasure of seeing the bill back in the senate
within eight days. Mr. Ma.\ey (sotto voco)—
With an adverse report. The bill was then
referred to the judiciary comuiitte by a vote
of 30 to 21.

! crowd would be treated to some pretty fast
trotting. There were but two events on

fill up if time would admit, ? but time did
! not admit, and it was only through a con
j siderable scratching of ? he elastic rule that \
! races can go on all the time '.there is light
J that the races were brought to a decision.
, From the first heat . to » the last in both
j events it was anybody's race, and more un
i certain and more hotly contested- races
were never run on this course, it anywhere
in the state. There was some little jockey
! ing, but each heat seemed to be for ? , blood.
The judges were H. D. McKenney, lied
Pillsbury and G. M. Seymour,; Mr. Mc
j Keuuey acted as starter awl Messrs. Castle,
| Oswald and Anderson kept the time. The
] first race was for the three-minute class for
a purse of 8400. Ten horses entered, two
withdrew, leaving eight ' starters. Two
o clock was the scheduled time for the race
but owing to considerable jockeying it was
three before McKeuney could give the
word go. The horses got off fairly well in
place. Before the quarter was reached
Dr. L. drew away from the ruck and with
the exception of a short term nearing the
half kept the lead -.- throughout,
winning the heat in 2:34>£, with
Sherwoods Cricket a good second.
In the second heat Letiie Watterson took
the lead and kept it to the wire. At the
half, Koss' Cricket closed' up the distance,
but the gray soon drew away again and fin
ished fully four lengths ahead of the Litch
field horse. Third heat— The Litchfield
Cricket took the lead, followed by The Doc
tor, Cora C, Kobert Palmer and Watter
son. At the half mile Lettie crept up to
third place, and nearing the three-quarter
ran neck-and-neck with The Doctor.

out between herselfTLlio'tLro' 1 insect, when
Burge used the whip judiciously, the pace
became too fast and the mare broke,
giving the heat to the Cricket. Fourth
heat — Cricket again got the lead, fol
lowed by Watterson, Palmer and The
Doctor, keeping these positions till the
half was passed; the gray here began to
forge ahead, giving the Cricket a good lead.
Fifth heat — Koss' Cricket again led out to
the quarter, followed closely byThe Doctor,
Robert Palmer and Watterson. The gray
broke badly and ran fully a quarter of the
distance to hold her position, and the
opinion prevailed that she should have
been sent to the stable. The insect made
the heat with Cora C a good second. Sixth
— Three horses started. Cricket led
The Doctor and Lettie to the quarter mile.
Watterson then changed places with The
Doctor, and nearing the three-quarter post
closed on Cricket, and came down the home
stretch at a jog, winning the race.

and Hancock came in collision, the drivers
were thrown and the horses bolted, Capi

he could be stopped, doing very little dam
age to his sulky. ; Both horses were con
siderably hurt, but more partic

Team--Sportlng; Notes from All
Over the Field.
Minneapolis Downed Affain.
Jennison should never umpire another
game in Minneapolis, and doubtless he
never will. By some mysterious dispensa
tion he was appointed a league umuire. He
is a weloncholy failure. In yesterday's
game between Minneapolis and buluth he
was the feature and was certainly the best
man the Duluth had. Some of his decisions
were so outrageously rank that the very
grass laughed at him, while the crowd
hooted In derison. In the eighth inning
Baldwin knocked the ball over the left
field fence. It was so palpable foul that
Baiwin did not run until shouted at by his
captain, but Jennison called it fair and two
runs resulted. In the next inning Crooks
poppedjustsuchaballover the right field
fence, but it was promptly ruled a foul.
Strikes were called on Minneapolis without
provocation and runners called out who
were so evidently safe the basemen had
drawn back. In a word, he disgusted even
the Duluth men, especially as the game was
theirs, anyhow. TJp to the third inning
THE GAME WAS A BEAUTY,
but bad errors by Rhue and Caniillion let
in three runs. Baldwin had disabled two
men by careless pitching, and the umpire
had disheartened the rest. Bates was
pounded for ten hits, with a total of four
teen, Minneapolis getting seven and a total
of nine. One of these was a three-bagger
by FoJey, which would have been a home run
but for the long grass. A beautiful eatcli
by O'Kouke ot McMillan's long iiy against
left held fence and Legsfs clumsy throw
ing to second were features of "a game
which Duluth otherwise practically played
without errors. Scheffers play behind the
bat was the best yet seen on the grounds,
seven put-outs and two assists going to his
credit. Cantillion's second base piay was
wretched and he should be replaced at
once. He caught a fine fly from Baldwin's
bat, but buth of ins errors were in critical
places, one letting in one and the other two
runs. Fole;' and Lynch carried their fields
well. The general play of Duluth was fine.

Oshkosh, Wis., June 23.— Milwaukee
lost the game to-day by errors at critical
points, but Oshkosh obtained its lead by
batting Kelly for five earned runs in the
ninth inning. Oshkosh's errors, though
numerous, were not costly. Hallstrom and
Ingraham, Oshkosh's new battery, did
finely, Ingraham's throwing to second being
especially good. Williams and Pope, late
of Oshkosh, played with the Cream City

Barnes' Team Won. •
Yesterday afternoon the St. Paul league
team played an exhibition game with the
Ked Caps on the grounds of the latter, in
West St. Paul, which resulted in a score of
12 to 4in favor of the league team . Not
withstanding the size of the score the game
was not without a good deal of interest.
The Ked Caps played a sharp game up to
the seventh inning, after which they weak
ened, and for a few minutes in the eighth
inning they were badly broken up and piled
up errors in a very unfortunate manner. At
the same time the league men batted the
Ked Cap pitcher very hard. Fitzsimmons
struck out fourteen Red Caps, while but
one league man went out that way. At the
end of the seventh inning the West St. Paul
men had shut out the league ciub four times
and were doing very good work. Their
playing was exceedingly creditable, and the
audience, which numbered several hundred,
largely West St. Paul people, did not hesitate
to signify in loud tones their approval.

Detroit 8, Philadelphia S.
Detroit, June 23. — For the opening
game with the Detroits. the Philadelphias
put Casey In the box, and that young man
was probably never more severely punished.
Ilis support was very good, but the way
Detroit bunched hits was discouraging.
Three hits and a passed ball gave the home
club one run in the first. Four hits gave
two more in the sixth. But in the seventh
most of the work was done, an out at first
with three singles, a double and a triple
giving Detroit five earned runs. Philadel
phia scored first on a single, a -put cut and
a poor throw to second. In the fourth, a
double and a single gave them one more.
In the eighth, three singles and a double
netted three earned runs. Both nines
fielded closely at critical points. Baldwin
was very effective, and eleven Quakers
struck out. Andrews and McGuire led in
the batting for tho visitors with three hits
apiece. Brouthers was satisfied with" four
hits for five times at the bat. Score:

his right arm. Ryan, who was substituted

BEATEN AND KICKING.
Chicago Lays Its Defeat to. tue Uni
. pire—Spalding's Views.
Special to the Globe.
Chicago, June 23.— Chicagos re
turned from Detroit this morning in any
thing but a pleasant frame of mind. The
cause of their wrath was the fining of
Capt, Ansou in yesterday's game and the
umpire's strong partisan feeling in favor of
the Wolverine club. The . boys say that
while they made some mistakes, their em>rs
would not have lost them the two last
games had Gaffney ruled as an impartial
umpire should have done. They complain
bitterly of his discrimination on balls and
strikes, and assert that had he been fair
the results would have been different.
Gaffney, they say, has umpired in all the
games played on the Detroit grounds
thus far, and has favored the home
team in every contest. .He has been
wined and dined, given carriage rides and
been presented with flowers ■by friends of
the Detroits until he has become biased in
their favor. Concerning the fining of Capt.
Auson, they say that when the big first
baseman left his position to ask about a
ruling at second base, and before he had
opened his mouth, Gaffnsy said: 'Til fine
you $10." The captain then
ASKED FOR AX EXPLANATION
when Gaffuey, without answering said:
"Fifty dollars more." Then Anson talked
very plainly to him, when he was fined an
additional §50. Kelly was also fined §10
for standing too near the coaching line. To
this procedure Mike objected, .when Gaffney
told him that if he repeated the act the fine
would stand. Kelly is assistant captain
aiid'bad a perfect right to stand on the line
and coach the basemen, while Anson
as j captain of the club had an
unquestionable right to ask why
Gaffney had declared a man safe at second
when Pfeffer and the runner himself says
he was touched four feet from the base.
The matter will be reported to President
frankly admitted that the Detroit sluggers
They outplayed us in the three games.'
Why, we only won the first through excellent
management and team work. The Detroits
were playing on their own grounds and had
the eclat of success and played ball from the
word go. The few of the boys whom I have
seen since their return say that Gaffney's de
cisions favored the Detroits; that ho has um
pired all the games on the Detroit grounds
this season and has become a local favorite,
being the recipient of flowers and such truck.
Well, I don't know anything about that. I
saw Saturday's game and I thought the um
piring very fair. He may have erred in
calling balls and strikes, but he made no
really obnoxious decisions. The boys were
outplayed; that's about the size of it.
Oarsmen in the City.,
Gaudaur and llamm, who will take part
in the race at White Bear lake on Saturday,
are at the lake taking their regular exer
cise. Both were in the city yesterday and
appear to be in splendid condition. Gaud

six feet high and as hard as a bone. Both
of these men appear very much pleased
with the lake and anticipate a big crowd.
Teemer will arrive in St. Paul this morn
ing from Pittsburg ' and go directly to the
lake, where he will remain till the race is
over. At 10 o'clock Gaudaur and Hamra
take their morning exercise and at 3 in the
afternoon they have another turn at the
oars. Possibly Teemer will exercise with
them this afternoon. The proposed ama

Lake Shore Switchmen.
Chicago, June 23.— Sixty-six of the
switchmen employed by the Lake Shore
road in the Forty-third street yards went
on a strike this afternoon by order of the
union. Business is practically at a stand
still. The matter at issue between the
road and its switchmen have apparently
been satisfactorily settled half a dozen times
within the last few days, but are in bad
shape again. Just how bad it is is difficult
to hnd out. At the stock yards the dressed
beef shippers were all notified that trouble
was pending and that they had best send
their goods East by some other line. A
heavy down town shipper who wanted to
make arrangements to send goods East to
morrow was advised to try some other route
as the company were expecting its men to
go out. The real question at issue now is
the terms of settlement made two months
ago on the occasion of that strike. The
settlement was made by the intervention of
Sheriff Hauchettand Commissioner Mc-
Carthy. The company vow holds that its
managers did not make the provisions
which the men have supposed, but con
sented only that the strikers should return
to work. About the time the sixty-six men
quit work, the committee which had been
in session down town during the greater
part of the forenoon, decided to order the
men to go on with their work. Messages
were drafted and sent to all the stations.
At Forty-third street, for gome reason or
other the switching crews either did not re
ceive their messages or did not understand
them and all but two of the crews quit
work. At the other points the men kept on
at work. The switching engines at the
stock yards ran around and gave notice to
the different crews there and they began to
leave work. At the central office the com
mitteemen and the officials could not under
stand this. It was assumed, however, that
these men had not got their messages to go
on with their work or else did not under
stand them. Division Superintendent Ains
den said that the men at Forty-third street
had certainly gone on a strike. He could
not explain it, he said, for it was altogether
contrary to the agreement made by the com
The switchmen at Englewood and all
along the line in the city joined the
strikers. No trains were allowed to move.
About 3 o'clock an effort was made to
move a train at Forty-third street. Sud
A MOB APPEASED
on the scene, the members of •which tried,
by throwing a switch, to ditch the engine
and train and did succeed in getting the
caboose off the track. Separate sections of
the mob attacked the train men, throwing
coupline pins at them and kicking and
pounding them. The conductor, CharleS
Pease, of Elkhart, was badly injured being
knocked down and kicked by a half dozen
of the assailants. John Berger, the switch^
man, was also hurt, but how seriously could
not be learned. The engineer and fireman
escaped entirely. No arrests were made.
The night switchmen unanimously failed
to put in an appearance for duty.
The switchmen held a meeting to-night
and afterwards said they had decided to
STAND BY EACH OTHEB
and fight the issue through, now that they
had committed themselves. They declare
that there will be no compromise, and that
they propose to make the company come to
terms. Their temporary executive com
mittee was continued permanently, con
sisting of D. O'Keilly, chairman, William
Fritch and Edward Dike. A squad of
twenty police will be sent to Forty-third
street early in the morning, and a special
night force kept patrolling the track. The
opinion is expressed by the strikers thai
the company must either discharge tha
eight non-union men or all the strikers.
Tlie officials declare positively that they
will not do the former, and in the latter
event it is stated that the freight handler*
may become involved.
The Iron .Moulders.
Pittsburg, June 23.— The movement
reported several months ago with a view to
consolidate the Iron Moulders' union with
the Knights of Labor is rapidly taking
shape. The executive board of the Knights
of Labor has issued a circular to the meuld
ers and a series of resolutions instructing
delegates to the next moulders' convention
to vote for the consolidation, is now in tha
hands of every lodge of moulders in tha
country, and will be acted upon soon. Tha
Moulders' union is claimed to have a mem
bership of 100,000 men. The circular cites
substantially identical reasons for joining
the Knights as were lately submitted to
the conventions of the Typographical union
and the Amalgamated association.
A Boycotter Convicted.
New York, June 23.— The first trial
under the conspiracy law for boycotting
was held to-day. Paul Wilzig was the ac
cused. The specific act charged against
him was that he. in connection with others,
had put a boycott upon the concert saloon
of one George Thiess, and not satisfied
with bringing him to terms in the matter
of employing only union men and of pay
ing union wages, had extorted $1,000 from
him to pay the expenses of the boycott.
All of these points were proved and the
jury brought in a verdict of guilty. The
extreme penalty is five years imprison
The Plasterers' Strike.
Pittsburg, June 23. — The plasterers of
the two cities, some 700 in number, have
gone out on another strike. This will close
building operations for some time unless
the trouble is settled. The Contractors'
union has filed a new scale, which stipu
lates that ten hours constitute a day's work,
at 30 cents an hour. At this rate, it is
averred, the men would earn more money,
but they positively refuse to work more
than eight hours a day.
The Plumbers Compromise.
St. scorns, June 23. — The conference
to-day between the striking and master
plumbers resulted in the adoption of a
compromise which ends the strike which
began May 1. The bosses have agreed to
pay and the journeymen to accept nine
hours pay for eight Uours work instead of
ten hours pay for the shorter hours.
Hnrd in the Field.
Special to the Globe.
Toledo. 0., June 23. — The announce
ment is made to-night that Hon. Frank
Hurd will be tl.o Fourth of July orator.
There is more in this than appears on the
surface. It has been settled that Mr. Hurd
shall run for congress from this district this
fall, and his Fourth of July speech will be
the introduction and his first appearance
since he left for Washington to contest the
seat of Hon. Jacob Romeis, in which he
was defeated. Mr. Hurd has many friends
in this city, who will take up his case and
make the campaign hot from then oh.
The Hurd Democrats are very jubilant to
night over their success in having Hurd
[ accepted as the orator of the day.
