Pag-e KcPherson, a Well

Other Casualties and Crimes
Reported From All
Scottdai k. Pa., April 14. — The
dreaded evictions that have threatened
here for a long time began to-day in a
most determined way. The Ager and
McEnerney families at Morgan's were
thrown out of their houses and their
poor furniture piled in tlie road, while
a great crowd of strikers silently
watched the proceedings. The two men
who were evicted have been con
spicuous as taking an active
part in all labor demonstra
tions. Evictions were, also carried
out at Summit and Adelaide, and the
scenes on the roads to-day are likely to
be repeated in the future a hundred
fold, as the manaeers of the great Flick
linns say strikers cannot live in com
pany houses. To-night the operators
say the sinkers are wavering and break
ing at a number of plants, and eviction
notices have been fairly showered at
the Painter and otiier works. This
is a powerful weapon in the hands
of the operator.-., and it looks as
if they are now playing their
Jast and winning game against the men.
An infuriated crowd of foreign strikers
attacked the houses of several men who
had returned to work at tiie Trotter
plant, windows and doorf were smashed
and the inmates were obliged to appeal
to the deputy sheriff for protection. A
woman was badly injured, but the
crowd withdrew before doing other
damage. Over thirty warrants have
been issued, and the rioters
were being arrested to-night.
The strikers say women led the mob.
The bankers here say a steady run has
been going on ever since the strike.
The llunsarians are drawing out their
money and going home. Some, have as
high as $'2,500 to their credit, aud say
they will be considered wealthy in their

A St. Louis Broker Skips Away
From His Creditors.
St, Louis, Mo., April 14.— 1t became
known this morning that Page McPher
6on, of the firm of MePherson, Switzer
& Co., general brokers on Third street,
has been missing from the city since
last Friday. It was at first rumored
that he committed suicide, but it de
veloped later that his disappearance
was caused by financial trouble and
that he left debts behind amounting to
fully §20,000. The exact condition of
his affairs cannot be stated, as he has
been, it is alleged, borrowine money
right and left from whoever he could
iret it. and it will take some time before
a clear statement of his standing can be
made. The firm ol which he is a mem
ber is St. Louis correspondent for Mc-
Cormick & Co., of Chicago and New
York. It is believed that his operations
have also involved the firm, but how
iieeply is not yet known. lie is said to
have told a friend last Thursday that he
was going to Chicago the next day. Mc-
Pherson is a leading society man and
one of the best known young men in the
Charles M. Switzer, McPherson's
partner, says there is not tho slightest
doubt in his mind that he has suicided.
As to the amount of money McPherson
owed Mr. Switzer had no idea. He did
know, however, that McPherson was
embarrassed financially, it was all
borrowed money and money due on
speculations. The speculations were
all personal, and do not affect the firm.
William McPherson Jr., a nephew of
the missing man, said that the theory
of suicide was not credited by the fami
ly, bin that Mr. McPherson had gone to
Chicago for a week, as he had often
done before. The police are working
upon the case.

BAXTIMORE, Me!., April 14.— The de
tectives have made two arrests with the
Richards tragedy. The prisoners arc
George Brain ana his son, George A.
Brain. The former is fifty years of age,
the latter'about twenty-lour. The son

fession, but, failing, he eneaeed, it is

through the left and one through the
outer edge of his left side.

PoKTXAKD, Or., April 14.— Word has
been received here from Lacenter,
Washington, of a terrible accident
which occurred near the latter place
yesteiday. A farmei named Holcomb
had placed some giant powder in a
stove. The powder exploded, demol

Terrorize a Neighborhood and
Then Escapo Arrest.
New Yokk, April 14j— A reign of
terror prevailed for several hours this
afternoon and early evening in those
portions of the Eighth and Ninth wards
bordering on the river - front. This
is the camping ground for tiie notori
ous "Ate Ward Gang."' and when it, or
any portion of it, goes on the warpath
they practically control tilings in. that
locality. Residents shut up shop and
either svatch the idiosyncracies of the
gang or seek their own and
their property's safety. "Patsy"
Judge, an ex-prize fighter; Jack
Clancy, Dave Reid, Mike Glea- "
son,' ana two others equally tough,
were the prime movers in to-day's out
ing. Many of the big ocean steamers
dock in this vicinity and there are al
ways foreisrn tars loitering about the
neighborhood. These are usually very
circumspect in their behavior, as
they entertain a wholesome fear
of . the ganir. To-day, however, a
sailor, said to belong to a Cunard
crew, becoming emboldened by drink,
while swinging along the street, de
clared that he could "lick the best
American ever born." His remark was
overheard by one of the gang,
Jack Clancy, who chanced to be
near, and was taken up at once.
He summoned his aides, and at
once proceeded to "do up" the brag
ginc seaman, who was accompanied by
two others. In the first place the gang
drew knives and slashed the the sailors'
clothing into ribbons. Then grabbiug
the one who had boasted of his prowess,
they literally wiped up the street with
him. The others fared little better,
but managed to elude their tar
mentors and ran away. The gang
then directed their attention to
the remaining sailor. First they took
turns in kuocking him down and, on his
attempting to rise, would knock him
down again. The poor fellow, with his
face beaten all out of shape, begged
piteously for mercy, but in vain.
At last a stalwart longshoreman
stepped from the crowd of spectators
and demanded fair play. The gang
made ominous advances in his direc
tion, and his courage oozed out, and he
ile«l. Meanwhile the sailor lay moan
ing, half-conscious, in the mud, when
Clancy jumped squarely upon his face,
smashing his nose and scattering his
teeth on the ground. The gang now
left the sailor and started up
Houston street. They espied an
old man seated upon the steps
of a church reading a newspaper. They
quickly seized and stripped him of his
clothing, leaving him almost entirely
nude. He was a respectable-looking
man fully sixty years old. Upwards of
an hour had elapsed since the gang be
gan operations, but, it is firmly as
serted by the eye witnesses that
not an officer was seen throughout
it all. None of the citizens dared inter
fere, being in mortal terror of the gang,
which practically rules the neighbor
hood. Even after the rumpus was
over, one of the gang, Reid, remained
in a saloon close by tha scene
of operations, but he was not arrested.
Up to a late hour to-night not one of
the participators in the broil had been
taken, although every one is known to
the police. Citizens of the neighbor
hood claim that the officers dare- not
make any arrests.

Sailors on the Great Lakes May
Chicago, April 14.— Chicago vessel
owners have thrown down the gauntlet
to the seamen's union, and will establish
an independent shipping office, where
sailors will be engaged regardless of the
rules laid down by the Lake Seamen's
Benevolent association. This decision
was reached yesterday at a meetingjof
the Lake Michigan Vessel Owners' as
sociation held in the Lumbermen's ex
change. Ship owners made a proposi
tion to base wages on freights. The
rate to Menominee and Manistee
was to be taken as the basis.
When the rate to either one
of these places was §150 a thousand feet
of lumber, wages were to beSl.5O a day.
This was a minimum rate. When. the
rate for lumber advanced to these
places, wages advanced in the same
ratio. The seamen's union met this with
a point blank refusal. The sailors would
have nothing to do with such an uncer
tain scale. They demanded 52 a day
and the employment of none but union
men. Negotiations came to an abrupt
end, aud both sides began to organize
for a struggle. Marine engineers in
Chicago are organizing in anticipation
of a general strike. Many of the vessel
owners at Cleveland, Buffalo and De
troit have declared their intention to re
duce wages the coming season. Thus
far but few attempts have been made at
reduction as only a small proportion, of
the steam vessels in the different ports
have been put In commission. It is
barely possible that with the general
opening of navigation an all-around cut
may be made in the salaries of the en
gineers. The engineers are prepared
to resist this to the extent of ordering a
general strike. The wages paid last
year to first-class engineers was 5125 a
month; second-class received ITS, and
third $65. The reduction to be made in
each case amounts to 10 per cent.

DIED ON A TRAIN.
Sudden Demise of a St. Paul Man
Coming Home From Denver.
A very mysterious death occurred on
the Kansas City train due from the
west at 11:30 last evening. Shortly
after midnight tiie police at head
quarters were notified by the
officials of the Kansas City road
that a passenger had died on
Denver Train No. 3. and that the train
would arrive in St.l'aulat lin the morn
ing. The police patio! wagon was dis
patched from police headquarters, and
McCarthy it Donnelly were also noti
fied, as was' Coronor Quinn. When
the train arrived, the man's body
was lying across a double section
of a passenger car, where he had died.
From cards found in his pockets and
from statements made to Conductor C
li. Shields, it was learned that the
man's name was William Kacerovsky,
manufacturer of cigars, C<>2 Randolph
street, St. Paul. Conductor- Shields
stated that when he took charge of the
train at Dubuque the dead man had told
him that he had been to Den
ver during ihe past ten days in
order to try and better bis condition.
He stated that he had a wife and three
children in St. Paul, and was on his way
home. Complainiug of pains in his
stomach, he lay down, but soon alarmed
all the passengers by his groans. At
West Concord a doctor boarded the train
and endeavored to relieve him, but did
not succeed. At Kenyon another doctor
was called, who administered an iujec
tion of morphine, but this seemed to
have, uo effect, and at 11:30, soon after
leaving Dennison, Minn., the man sud
Robert Elder, of Fairbanks, Morse &
Co., of St. Paul, who was a passenger
on the train, together with W. W. Har
vey and wife, of Portland, Or., did all
they could for the dying man, but
failed to relieve his acute sufferings.
The body, which was that of
a man about forty years of
ase, was conveyed by the" orders of Dr.
Quinn to the establishment of McCarthy
«te Donnelly. Nothing of value was
found in the pockets, his pocketbook
only containing 45 cents and a tele
trraph form addressed to Vaclav
Picha, Seventh street west and
Michigan street, St. Paul. Dr. Quinn,
the coroner, will hold an inquest this
morning to determine the cause of the
death of Kacerovsky. whose relatives
were notified of his demise at an early
hour by the police.

To the Editor of the Globe.
A prominent feature of legislation is
the local acts regulating the catching of
iish in various lakes and streams within
this state, leaving one to infer that fish
are becoming scarce. In looking at a
map of this state, one would suppose
there are lakes and streams enough to
supply the whole population with all
the fish food needed. As it is, I don't
believe there is one-half the fresh fish
used in this stale, were proper at
tention given to protecting our edible
fish from being destroyed by deep
freezing of the lakes and the attacks of
such iish as gars and dogfish, with no
measures being taken to destroy those
worthless fish and means being pro
vided to furnish air to fish in the
smaller lakes during severe winters, it
strikes me our fish hatcheries are sim
ply furnishing food to those worthless
tigh, arid our fish supply decreasing
every year. If the fish commissioners
have spare time it seems to me it mLht
be profitably employed in studying the
habits of those destroying fish and adopt
some plan to exterminate them.

Chicago, April 14.— Mis9 Maria
Krampa, of 150 Poplar street, Philadel
phia, applied to Mayor (Jregier today
for assistance to reach her' home. She
says that in February last she was em
ployed by Miss Maggie Mitchell, tha
actress, as a tutor in German. She says
that Miss Mitchell made very severe
terms witii her; that she was an exact
ing mistress, and that, finally, when
Miss Krampa, unable to stand the
strain, broke down with nervous pros
tration at Burlington, 10., Miss Mitchell
abandoned her without money. Through
the kindness of some railroad men she
was enabled to come to Chicago and she
wanted assistance to get to Philadel
phia. The mayor referred her to the
visitation and aid society.

A SYNDICATE FOOLED.
Englishmen Bring Suit to Annul
; a Syndicate Transaction.
Nf.w York, April 14.— The London
Contract company and the London and
Chicago Contract corporation, limited,
English corporations, formed a syndi
cate some time aeo to purchase certain
American enterprises, one of which was
the Boneblack Carbon and Fertilizer
manufacture. They entered into a con
tract to buy the three largest concerns
in the country— The Lister Agricultural
Chemical Works, of Newark, N. J.;
the Michigan Carbon Works, of Detroit,
Mich., and the Northwest Fertilizing
company, of Chicago. Now they
claim to have been swindled and
j desire that the contract shall be set
I aside, and have brought suit to this end
in. tbe supreme court. The defendants
are Henry M. Bigelow, James M. Glf
l'ord, Edwin Lister, Ebenezer C. Day,
Henry -.Russell, Denning Jarvis and
Henry M. Kalston, of the three bone
black companies. Jt Is stated that Bige
low, representing these companies, of
fered their entire stock to the English
men for $3,133,610. The plaintiffs agreed
to buy at that price and to pay $1,335,000
I in first mortgage bonds and §242,000 in
j preferred stock.. They were to form an
English eoirpany with a capital of
§-,400,000. It was never incorpo
rated, although the syndicate paid a
deposit of §330,000. Bisrelow, it is
claimed, represented that tiie three com
panies had material on hand valued at
51,354,355, which, with the profits on
hand, would be sufficient to carry on
the business. He also represented, the
Englishmen say, the business would
pay 8 per cent ou the investment. These
representations, they claim, were gross-
I ly fraudulent and false. Judgment is
I therefore demanded that the contract be
set aside, the deposit returned, and the
Central Trust company, which had
been agreed on as a depository, be en
joined from disposing of any money.
The Sugar Trust.
New York, April — Willett and
Gray and other prominent brokers in

has undoubtedly been entered into by
the independent refiners and the trust,
and joint action of selling refined sngars
