there were 10,000 Polish Jews in this city,

swung like banners across the principal
streets. The formal festivities were
opened last evening at the Richmond
theater with a military ball. The theater
had lioen decorated for the occasion with
an elalmrate display of flags and bunting.
From the center of the high ceiling was
swung a canopv of streamers in the colors
of Maryland and Virginia. The same col

embracing nearly, if not quite all, the ex
Confederates in congress, was present.

crowd, when the roustabouts employed by
the circus made an attack on them, mow
ing the lioys down with their cudgels as
fast as t hey could reach them. The boys
ran to a safe distance, when the circus
men lieiran shooting revolvers. This
aroused the ire of the boys and they de

themselves with clubs, stones, bricks and
several had revolvers. When the circus
employes made another assault the stu
dents did not run, but gave them battle
and a free fight ensued. This kind of
work lasted some time. (

IMPORTANT LABOR CASE DECIDED.
Employers Must Keep Their Contracts
with Non-l'ulon Men.
Albany, X. Y., May 29. A decision of
Importance of every labor union in the
country was handed down in the supreme
court here Tuesday in Luke Cox vs. the
Albany lirewing company. The appeal
was by defendant from a judgment of the
eounty court for plaintiff. In April, 188H,
during a si rike of the defendant's regular
employes the plaintiff and others were en
gaged to take the place of the strikers, the
plaintiff being under verbal agreement to
work for one year. When the strike was
settled a few weeks later plaintiff was dis
charged, and then brought suit to recover
wages for the balance of the year he was
unemployed. The judgment in his favor
is now affirmed, with costs. It is said that
the labor unions will pay the expenses of
the trial and also the man s salary.

tain that the flight of Hroker E. J. Cattell
was due to au unfortunate love affair,
which drove him to desperation. He was
engaged a short while since to a wealthy
belle residing near Central park, but the
day for the wedding had never teu set,
as L.ttttell s convivial nabtta were a per
petual bar. Finally, as he proved that he
bad no control over his passion for drink,
the lady broke the engagement From
that time Cattell plunged into dissipation
and speculation and went rapidly to ruin.

London, May 29. The strike of the 300
timber-handlers on the Liverpool docks,
which began Tuesday, to enforce thejr de
mand for an increase of wages to 6 slal

procure men to take their places, the de
mands of the men were conceded, and
work was resumed.
Give It to Him on the Balance.
Waterburt, Conn., May 29. An inves
tigation of the books of the Smith &
Griggs company shows that George Rob
erts, the chief bookkeeier, who was ar
rested several days ago for embezzlement,
