recalling some aspects of the commune.
In response to an appeal of thejournala
Le Peuple and La Petite Republique,
groups- of anarchists and socialists
gathered about S o'clock in the after
noon in the Place de la Republique.
The police had taken precautions and
there seemed no danger of disorders.
Sebastion Faure and Faberot, well
known revolutionary anarchists, were

other things be said that the anarch
ists should be masters of the streets.
The . police then Interfered and dis
lodged Faure and Fa be rot. making
Pistols and Knives Come Into Action.
The crowd at this point dispersed,
but a column of demonstrators headed
by Faure and Henri D'Horr made for
the Place de la Nation. The police
broke through the column and a strug
gle for the mastery followed. Shots
were fired, and M. Goullier, commis
sary of police, was twice stabbed with
a knife. This threw tbe police into
momentary confusion. Tbe mob reas
pembled and ran toward tbe Place de la
Nation. The police, reinforced by
squad that bad been beld in reserve,
made another attempt to stem the cur
rent, and fresh, fierce fighting occurred
three constables being wounded.
t'sare nnd D'Horr Arrested.
Fanre and D'Horr jumped into
passing street car that was going to the
Place de la Republique, and tbe car
driver on arriving there gave a signal
to the police, who immediately arrest
ed them both, together with two other
anarchists, Joseph Ferrler and Jean
Perrln. All were conveyed to the
Chateau d'Eau barracks. Only D'Horr
was found in possession of firearms. In
the meantime tbe anarchist mob re
traced its course to the Place de la Re
publique, smashing the windows of re
ligious edifices on the way. Suddenly
either at tbe word of command or in
obedience to Impulse tbecolumnmade
a loop and curved toward the Church
of St. Ambrois", where the rioters
smashed the windows.

Mob TV recks tbe Interior of tbe Charch of
Proceeding thence toward the Fau
bourg du Temple, which it reached at
tbe corner of tbe Rue Darboy and
the Rue St. Maurl-Popincourt. the mob
formed up into a compact body
Hatchets were suddenly produced, with
long knives stolen from tbe couriers
of shops, and a concerted rush was
made upon tbe church of St. Joseph.
Tbe aged sacristan, seeing the mob.
hastily closed the outer gates, but these
were soon forced with hatchets and
bars of iron. The massive oaken doors
were then attacked. Tbe wild horde
burst Into the church, which instantly
became a scene of pillage and sacrilege.
Altars and statues were hurled to the
floor and smashed, pictures were rent,
candlesticks, ornaments, and hosts
from the high altars were thrown down
and trampled under foot.
The crucifix above was made the
target for missiles, and the figure of
the Saviour was fractured in several
places. Then, while raucous voices
sang the Carmagnole, tbe chairs
were carried outside, piled up and set
on fire in tbe center 01 tne square
front in spring- church. Wbao-lbis stage
was reached the crucifix was pulled
down and thrown into tbe flames. Sud
denly the cry was raised that the
statue of the Virgin had been forgotten
and the crowd returned and tore this
Meanwhile tba sacristan, who bad
been captured by the anarchists, es
caped and called the police and Repub
lican Hoards, who promptly arrived
with many constables. They were com
pelled to fall back in order to form up
into line of defense, -as tbe anarchists
attacked them viciously with knives.
At length tbe officers began to gain
the mastery. A score of anarchists took
refuge In an adjacent bouse. Others
entrenched themselves In the belfry
and fiercely defended themselves by
showering missiles on the Republican
Guards; but finally these were dis
lodged. Twenty anarchists were arrested,
taken to the police station, searched,
and found to be carrying revolvers,
loaded sticks and knives.
When the police entered the church
the anarchists had just set fire to the
pulpit. The interior of the edifice was
a complete wreck. Several valuable old
pictures that can never be replaced
were mined. . - . .

Pittsburg, Aug. 21. The Post says:
A salient feature of the fight of the
window glass workers against the trust
of manufacturers now in process of
formation will develop in a few days.
The building trades are expected to
join hands with the glass workers' in
the contest. Craftsmen will use only
window glass manufactured in inde

means a strong alliance of labor against
a proposed combination of capital.
