XavenMirt goes on to tell about the cruel
ty practiced by Mahone against a man who
bail been m the hospital for twenty daya
When the sick man was discharged from the
hospital Mubone put him at work for which
bis condition was not fit. He objected and
Mahone took him by the neck, shook him
severely and took him hick to jail, when
Jones triced him up. About 11:30 the doc
tor let him down, hut Mahone triced him up
again and took away tba keys of the baud
cuffs. But Dr. Smith bad bim taken down
again and bad the hand-cuffs cut off. Dr.
Smith was generally reooxnisid by the men
as superintendent, but, in fact, everybody
was bisn, for tha men had orders written by
Koty and Or. Smith and others as superin
tendent. The Labors rs Quit Work.
Next morning Moby bad a conflict with
two men named Phillips and Francis. Fif
teen minutes after that tba carmen came
down, and Hobinson, who was their spokes
man, demanded to sea tba superintendent
Tbey said to Smith, who claimed to be su
perintendent: "We want to see you with
regard to the treatment of this man the
man who was tried by Mahone. Wa are
Americiu citizens, and not slaves." Smith
made the men go to their quarters at tha
point or a gun. Half an hour later all tha
white men bad their revolv rs and guns in
their bands. They called on the men to coins
up. Jones was foreiuost,and the men filed out
and cam over, and they were cslled off, man
by man. Dr. Smith was the oflljors' spokes
man, and he and they had ci eked revolvers
and guna As each man filed past be was
asked: "Are you willing to wnrkr "Yea"
"Then pass on."
Outbreak nf the Riot.
When James Phillip came along he said:
"Yea, if I am properly treated" Mr. Jones
immediately jumped nut at bim and put a
pistol to his head. "Don't move," he said,
"or I'll blow your brains out" He shot
with the last word, and Phillips fell, shot
through the jaw. Well, there was about a
doien guns, and immediately they were fired
simultaneously. The men about 100 in all
then picked tip stones from tha road and
threw at the officers. The latter retreated
and got under cover, while the laborers
picked up the pistols that fell The white
men began firing upon tba men again.
About 2 o'clock tbey ceased firiug. Dr.
Smith then ennw out and said: "Men, there
is a vessel in the harbor. You can go to
Kingston or England in it Wa won't xer
erciae any further controljover you." Tha
men said: "No, wa want all the ammunition
so you cau't harm us any mora. Stones be
gan to be thrown again, and soma ran to

Tne Marder of the Whites.
"What occurred then I don't know, for I
went to my shanty. That was about 4
o'clock, and about 5 I heard dynamite ex
plosions, and from so ne of the men who
came up I learned that the officers had sur
rendered. After the officers surrendered
three of them were murdered. Foster was
killed by Henry Jom-a, and Mahone and
Falea were also shot, b it I did not see these
deeds. It would have gone bard with the
remainder had not Ht ca and 1 stood guard
over them. They got wroper treatment, but
because of this action f ours, and the feeling

wa thought it best to joma away from the

lives if we remained."

New York, Oct 1 1. Tbe Herald's Wor
cester correspondent says: "I interviewed
tbe South Americau delegates Wednesday
on the persistent attacks made by European,
and especially E iglish. paper on this inter
national congrcs. Not one of the gentle
men considered tbe utterances of the hostile
journals to have any weight, at any rate
Senor Jeronimo Zdaya, of Honduras said:
"Tbe government of Honduras has taken tbe
liveliest interest in this congress, and has
gone into it with high hoiea. We desire to
develop the natural resources of our coun
tries. We are very near to the United States,
and have better means of communication
with it than we have with Europe. This is
a matter simply of commercial interest. We
have already several North American com
panies dealing with us, and we may find it
more advantageous to trade still more ex
tensively with the United States."
Henor Jacinio Castellanos, one of the dde
gate from Salvador, Slid: "Oh, wo are not
to be influenced in tbe least by what the
Briti-h bii 1 other journals say of us. We
naturally desire to bj prosperous and rich,
and therefore this conference with the
United Sli.t should not be considered an
attack upon E iglnn I or any other Euro
Senor N. Itolrt l'eraz i, dclegut from Ven
ezuela, sni.i: "All the iowers of Europe are
interested in increasing their commerce and
in op.ning up markets by conquest, and
placing their productions, which are very
large. They see that this con zrass will re
duce so-ne of their markets, and Hint the op
portunities will be transferred to th? United
Stab's. The political interests in America
and in the United States have developed a
favorable policy toward other peoples on
this continent, w hereas the Europeans have

fcI desire to Impress this point upon your
readers that the English are now on the
luniks of the Orinoco, that they have a part
oi our mining terntory and that they want
to have tho navigation of that river. We
are at the mouth of the gate to those coun
tries in South America, and we lead to the
Amazon and other great rivers. Columbia.
Ecuador, all are exposed if we open this
gate to the European powers. U e believe
that Knglund is not at alt scrupulous about
taking possession of land. She pretends to
have wine such right in our country, and if
she were allowed to carry out her projects
it would endanger all the other South Amer
ican countries. This congress will bo a bar
rier to all such purposes. That is the reason
England is attack lug us."
Other Delegates' View.
Senor Aiberio Nin, oOV Uruguay, said:
"The Englib hava one-third of our com
merce. If tbe United States can do better
for us we are not obliged to go on trading
with England. Tbe attacks made l.y the
r.nglish rcss on the congress are out of
place, and are not warranted."
Senor F. C, C Z-garra, the delegate
from Peru, said: "We have come together
with the most friendly feelines. We have
no other obj-x-t but to enlarge our markets
and keep them open to fruitful compttitioa
It is not fair for Europeans to attac' us.
This conference does not mean an inter
