Cleveland, July 25. Yesterday failed
to bring any relief to the strike situa
tion, which is regarded as more seri
ous. The state board of arbitration
has practically abandoned its efforts
to conciliate the strikers and their
former employers. The resentment of
the conductors and motormen who quit
work and the more turbulent spirit
of their sympathizers is held in check
to a degree by the presence of the po
lice and the militia, members of which
ride in the cars or are held in readiness
at the barns and terminals.
First Fatality of the Strike.
Small riots occurred during the day,
but with one exception they were with
out sprious results. In the death of
Henry Cornweit, slain by a bullet fired
by Ralph P. Hawley, a conductor on
the Broadway line, is recorded the first
fatality of the strike. Shortly after
noon Hawley's car approached Orange
street and was beset by a crowd of
men nnd boys. Cornweit. the 19-year-old
son of a butcher, was astride a
horse and rode at the side of the car,
keeping pace with it for some distance.
Various stories are told as to what
passed between the conductor and the
boy, but the mob was suddenly called
to its senses by the sight of Hawley,
who jumped to the street and started
in pursuit of Cornweit.
Firss a Fatal Bullet.
The latter, closely followed by his
pursuer, turned up Perry street. At
Woodland avenue the latter pulled his
revolver and fired. His victim fell,
fatally wounded with a ghastly wound
in the left temple, and died soon after
being removed to the hospital. The
crowd which before the incident had
been so violent was awed by the seri
ousness of the affair and permitted the
conductor to walk back to his car. He
was arrested and taken to the station,
where a charge of murder was entered
against him. When the car returned in
charge of another man and laden with
police thousands of people were crowd
ed round the fatal spot. The track was
blockaded and the stalled cars were
bombarded with stones, pieces of brick,
and sticks of wood. The police man
aged by dint of using their clubs to
clear the way after a delay of about
half an hour.
Clue to the Nltro-Olyrerlne Fiend.
The police believe they have a clew
to the man who placed nitro-glycerine
which Sunday night blew up a Euclid
avenue car and injured four passen
gers. Mathew Robison. who was seen
at 2 o'clock yesterday morning driving
a horse and buggy said to resemble the
one in which the mysterious wrecker
rode, has been placed in a cell. Robi
son claims that he found the rig mas
terless and took possession, intending
to aenver it to unaries steimetz, a
liveryman by whom Robison is em
ployed.. Steimetz informed the officers
that he rented the outfit Sunday night
to a man whom he identified vaguely
as having a dark mustache.
RIOTING CONTINUES AT CLEVELAND.
Another Nltro-GIycerine Outrage, but No
One Is Hurt Pistols Fsed.
Rioting broke out afresh Jast night,
and a second attempt to wreck a car
was made. A Pearl street car, speed
ing south near Holmden avenue, carry
ing beside the mo tor man and conductor
a guard, successfully ran a gauntlet of
missiles thrown from the roofs of
houses only to run into a can of nitro
glycerine, which exploded with terrific
force. The rear platform was torn off
and the flooring wrenched from its
fastenings. The crew was not injured.
but emerged from the shattered ruin
with pistols drawn and began firing at
what was thought to be a couple of
men crouching as if to hide themselves
behind a small bill board. The explo
sion was the signal for renewing the
attack from the bouse tops and alleys.
Troop A, hurrying on horseback to
the scene, was bombarded with giant
firecrackers. One of these exploded
with such force that the mount of one
of the troopers was knocked over, In
bis fall carrying with him two other
horses and their riders. Several ar
rests were made. Pistol shots were fre
quently heard, and one man was slight
ly wounded in the arm. it is said.

Interfering with Workers.
Evansville. Ind., July 25.--The' John

cuit court last Saturday night for a
supplemental injunction . directed
against the striking miners and oth
ers who were clustering in the neigh
borhood of the Ingle mine and intimi
dating the non-tmionista. Special Judge
Hawkins issued the order yesterday
morning. Chief Detective .Brennecke
called on John Ingle, saying that the
city would guarantee protection if he
would disarm his colored miners. This
was agreed to and theCGiored miners
will be releived of their armsT- The un
ion men are disposed to regard ti. 8
move with suspicion, saying that the
negroes will surrender the rifles, but
their revolvers will still be carried, -
National Committeeman Fred Ditch
er says that if the colored miners are
not disarmed something serious will
happen, as the strikers will not per
mit the negroes to parade the streets
with Winchesters. Every mine in the
southern Indiana coal field not signing
the scale is idle, except the Ingle and
First Avenue mines. An attempt was
made to start the Hartwell mine, in
Pike county, yesterday morning, but
the union miners interposedand threat
ened the negroes if they attempted to
enter the shaft. The negroes there
upon decided to remain out until tbe
strike is settled.
Indianapolis, July 25. The governor
yesterday had a conference with D. D.
Houston, president of the Sunnyside
Coal Mining company, the state labor
commissioners and others relative to
the strike of coal miners In the Evans
ville district. The governor said he
wanted to get all sides together and
have the difficulties settled. He said
there was no longer any doubt but that
each side had to make some conces
sions and that a peaceful termination
could be brought about without any
sacrifice of principles.

Illinois have given the state branch ot

until today to carry out the' agreement
made by them last January regarding

received instructions yesterday from
his father, George V. Penwell, of Chi
cago, president of the Penwell com
pany, to have all fires drawn from un
der the boilers at the shaft and to close
down the mine immediately. Secretary
Penwell obeyed orders by instructing
fhe engineer to extinguish all fireB and
close the mine. It is Operator Pen
well's intention to indefinitely abandon
his mines and mining interests in
Pana, claiming that under present con
ditions granting the miners' demands
would prove a greater loss to him than
the abandonment of his mines.

Cincinnati, July 25. The strike of
messenger boys that started last Sat

missiles, and many slugged with clubs.
The street urchins congregated about
the Western Union and Postal offices
last night, about 1,000 at each place.
When a new boy or man went out

with epithets, clubs and stones. When
these working messengers took street

peatedly and scattered them, but the
disturbers would soon rally again.
Later at night the mob concentrated
around the Postal office. The compa

the newly formed union, and at a
meeting last night tbe boys voted to
continue the strike. At this meeting
the newsboys and some tobacco strip
