Mt. PLEASANT, Ta., April 4 Gen. Wiley
yesterday detailed Private Keller, of the
Eighteenth regiment, who speaks seven
languages, to circulate among he Hunga
rian and other strikers. Last nignt when
Private Kellar returned to headquarters
he reported to Gen. Wiley as follows:
"There is going to be trouble between this
and Monday. The strikers are all Indig
nant because the soldiers have been sent
liere, but they don't seem to fear them. I
was in two houses this a f tern jon where
they threatened to attack me until I ad.
dressed them in their own tongne. In
one house I saw five guns and a number
of revolvers. In the other I saw three
guns and several revolvers. Five out of
every ten of these men have served in th6
armies of the old country, and they know
What soldiers are.
Not Afraid of State Militia.
"They say that The soldiers who have
baen brought here are simply working
men like themselves and will not inter
fere with their movements. In one of
their papers of to-day that I picked up
was an article saying they need not be
afraid of the militiamen, who were
novices and did not know any more about
warfare than the strikers themselves.
!hey also know about all the members of
je Tenth regiment, and I heard them
ridiculing tbem to-day. So far as I have
discovered there is going to bo trouble
and it will come within the next two
days. All of the Hungarians nra in a
dangerous mood over the killing of their
fellow-workmen at Morewood, which they
claim was entirely unjustifiable."
r A l'rlinc of Great Uneasiness.
I With the militia hurryiug through the
streets, and restless, nervous strikers
crowding about the sidewalks and cross
ings, Mt. Tieasnnt was a decidedly lively
f!ace yesterday. The presenca of the sol-
aiers nas, to an extent, driven away
the uneasy feeling. Still, there js too
much uncertainty for comfort. Another
ueadly conflict will not surprise aBy one
here. The striker are jn a sulleu mood.
JThe evidence before the coroner's jury,
given so far by strikers and their friends,
and tending, as it does, to show that the
firing was hasty, has enraged them, and
their suppressed wrath may take Are at
any time. Not less than 8,000 miners hung
around town all day, and the main street
In front of the armorv where thn tven mm.
panies are stationed was choked up from
morning until night.
Holdier and Strikers Fi&ht.
A collision betweeu two strikers and a
soldier occurred near the Baltimore and
Ohio station yesterday morning. The
guardsman was worsted in the fight, and
was taken off by friend. The fight tend
ed to unsettle the general feeling, and was
accepted as on alarming indication. At a
late hour last night the strikers weie
holding a big meeting, aud a feeling of
nervousness prevailed among the soldiers.
Instructions to Gen. Wiley.
Gen. Wiley is instructed from Harris,
burg to give strict orders to the troops
that no firing is to be resorted to unless
by order of the officer in command, and
said officer shall not give such order until
every other means of restoring order has
been exhausted. The commanding officer
will call upon the strikers to disperse in
cases before firing upon them. But if
they refuse he is empowered to order the
troops under his command to open fire
. and keep it up until the mob has fled.
MANAGER LYNCH GIVES BAIL.
Threats Against Caps. Loar Portentous
Talk or the Strike leaders.
General Manager Lynch and Superin
tendent Ramay appeared before inquire
McCaleb yesterday afternoon and ac
knowledged service of warrants issued by
the strikers' leaders, charging them with
being accessories before the fact to the
felonious shooting of the strikers. Thy
entered bail in the amount of $800 each
for a hearing next week. Fear are ex
pressed on all sides for the safety of Capt,
Loar, of this place, whose men, it is
claimed, shot the strikers. Threats are
being made on all side against him, aud
tie is going around with a bodyguard.
The captain himself has no fear, but his
fellow oflicers are very anxious that he
Thinks Strikers Sonld Be Armed.
Ex-Secretary Robert Watchorn and Vice
President Punna, of the United Mine
workers, returned here yesterday. "The
killing of these men," said Penna, "has
etregthened our position" tenfold. We
are determined not to lay down. If tae
operators are to le armed to pro
tect property, an 1 under that pre
tense shoot down men on the highways,
it is time the men were armed to protect
their own lives."
Strike Leaders Look for Trouble.
Thore will be an immense concourse at
tend the funerals of the dead men, and at
the cemetery the strike lenders will make
orations, the character of which may be
easily imagined. "The dirge of the bands
at the funeral will bethe knell of more peo
ple than the martyr-," was the remark of
m a,rH,tl tuere will be hell to-mor-
nrw," said Peter Wipe; "yon do not know
how terribly these men feel this thing;
they are now beyond control. We repu
diate any responsibility for the future ac
tion of the strikers."
In Defense of the Slav fclemant.
A prominent leader of the Slav element
aid yesterday that a majority of the
crowd out Thursday morning was there
npi'it protest; that the American, En
glish, and Irish leaders went to the
Standard works and forced the Sluvs
to join them under threats of punish
ment. Austria Thinks it a Good Riddance.
London, April 4. A Vienna dispatch
says that very little interest has been
aroused there by the reported slaughter
in America of a number of Hungarians
and Poles. The emigration of that kind
is from the lowest dregs of the empire
and the Austrian government Is the most
aristocratic in Europe, even the electors
being of most substantial and superior
class. No official information has been
given on the subject, but it was stated on
well-informed authority that there would
pot be an official inquiry into the matter.

THE ELECTION, IN SLIGO. ? "5
Parnell Beaten by 80 British Literal!
Not at All Satisfied.
Lo-vdojt, April 4. After a campaign oi
the greatest excitement and tnrbnktiM
the election at Sligo came off Thursday
with comparatively little trouble. Thtre
were a few unimportant "scraps," aid
fierce exchanges of eomnliments. but
nothing calling for hard work by the ro-
iice.. .ne Jr'arneilities were defeated
the majority against them being SOG. T le
priests did not stop urging the voters na
til their ballots were deposited. , Thsy
made direct and personal appeals to the
voters as they stood in line, to vo;e
Majority One Thousand Too Little.
The result of the election. has not beo
received with satisfaction by the 'labeiul
leaders. Gladstone is'isaid to b e surprise d
as well as disappointed by the strength
which Parnell has shown, in face of tl e
united efforts of the English Libert.!
party, the Irish hierachy, and the ne
national federation. - Parnell isncknow -edged
now to bethe representative of a
formidable minority, which, while rut
strong; enough to have its own way, is toj
strong to be treated with anything liks
indifference. A leading member of par
liament said last evening that the major
ity was 1,000 short of being decisive.
Parnell Too BIr To Bo Ignored.
"Nothing could show," he said, "mort
strikingly the wonderful influence o!
Parnell than the fact that, almost single
handed, with most of his abler lieutenant
absent from the country, and with the
terrible weight of the O'Shea divorce upoi.
nim, he should be able to poll snch a vot
against a popular resident of Sligo, witl
a candidate almost unknown in Sligo, and
against other united interests making e
combination more powerful to all appear
ances than any ever before arrayed in an
Irish election." The Sligo election has
not tended to restore Liberal enthusiasm
for home rule, and the general sentiment
seems to be to make home rule a seoondarv
issue in English Liberal politics.
Baironr's Compliments to the Police.
. Balfour has telegraphed to the police
authorities at Sligo his appreciation of
their arduous and efficient services in pre
venting serious bloodshed. A dispatch
from Sligo says that there iu still some
apprehension of tronbb. and the police
are kept on extra duty, and will be until
affairs have assumed their normal condi
tion. It is considered fortunate for tUe

iomios, April 4. In a speeell at New
Castle, J.F. X. O'Brien, M. P., said that
"Parnell must never again be allowed to
handle the flag that he has disgraced. He
would rather submit to fifty years of Bal
fonrism than to home rule under Parnell.
If Ireland had home rule with a governor
like Parnell she would be disgraced."
DETECTIVE O'MALLEY APPEARS,

Give nim a "Fair Trial."
New Orleans, La., April 4. Much to
the surprise of the citizens here Detective
O'Malley rade to the court yesterday with
his counsel, surrendered himself and was
admitted to bail He then went out on
the streets and walked around, apparent

seem determined to "catch him both com.

against him, as well as the one found re

"The Law to Take Its Conrse."
The news that he had surrendered to

a call for a meeting was issued. The meet

street, and at it the question of hanging
O'Malley was taken tip, and some favored
stringing him up to the nearest lamp

resolved to allow the law to take its

est from Rodin! Not Given Out,
WASHINGTON CITT, April 4, At 10
o clock yesterday morning Secretary
-Maine walked from his house in Lafay
ette square to the state department, as is
his wont. His face was wreathed in
smiles. So great was his satisfaction at
the latest phase of the Italian situation
that he made no effort to conceal his good
iiumor. iiui ne was given a shock: by a
wag of a newspaper man, who met him in
Lafayette square and in tones of well
feigned excitement said to him;
"Mr. Blaine, our next row will be
w-ith France. Have you. heard the newsf "
"No," was the reply.
"Then look to the corner of the park. A
gang of American citizens are hanging a
Frenchman within twenty rods of your
It Was a Bronse Frenchman.
Mr. Biaine looked, despite his suspicion
that a belated April fool joke was being
played on him. Sure enough, at the cor
ner of the square, but a few feet from the
secretary's residence and within plain
view of tho White House, tho figure of
a Frenchman was seen dangling in the
air with a rope around his neck. But it
was only the bronze figure of one of the
compatriots of Lafayette, which the work
men engaged in erecting the Lafayette
memorial statue were lifting into place by
means of a derrick. Mr. Blaine evident
ly appreciated the joke, for he laughed
good-humoredly and walked on to the
state department with the air of a man at
peace with himself and all the world. He
repeated the joke at the cabinet meeting,
and Jerry Husk, who is fond of jokes,
told it to all his callers at the department
That States Bights Question Again.
Authorities 'on international law are
still discussing what is called the weak
place in the-.merican system. Many of
these men Ik Id that the state department
has esbumed a ridiculous attitude in at-
tempting to evade the responsibility for
the punishment of the Xew Orleans riot
ers. These claim that the constitution
gives the federal government the power
to make treaties and it is natural to as
sume that it confers cpoh it the power of
conforming to them in disregard of state
authority. The constitution is the su
preme law of the land and thus higher
than the state law.
A Western Statesman's Tiew.
A western congressman, who is one of
the best authorities on international law,
takes the position that the state depart
ment has acted in strict conformity to our
constitution. "It is true," says this au
thority, "that the constitution gives the
federal government a right to live up to
its treaties, but where is the statute by
which these alleged criminals can be pun
ished? It will be necessary for congress
to point to the statute for the punishment
of the alleged crime. At present we have
none such, this power being delegated to
the states. Whenever this question of en
acting a law for this special case is raised
in congress, the old hue and cry will go
up about governmental interference witn
states' rights, and it will be impossible to
pass such a piece of legislation."
The Action of the State Final.
Continuing, he said that snch a law
could not be passed because it would be
ex post facto, "and," said he, "if this state
of Louisana, in the regular course of law,
docs not punish these alleged ofTendei-s
there is no way by which the offense can
possibly be condoned by the federal gov
ernment. Mr. Blaine has grasped the sit
uation exactly. If the state of Louisana
fails to punish, the only remedy that will
be left for the Italian government will be
to seek an indemnity through the doubt
fnl process of congress, and congress has
demonstrated more than once with what
iipathy it acts in such matters."
A IHspatrh That Came Too Late.
A report is current that after Baron
Pava had received his .instructions to de
mand his passports, another telegram ar
lived countermanding the instructions.
Minister Porter having made a satisfac
tory explanation to tho Italian govern
ment. But Fava had already presented
the first cable message, aud it was too
1 ite. The date of this inoperative tele
tram shows that it was decided upon im
mediately after the return of Premier
Kudini to Rome, and after his interview
vith Minister Porter. Rudini was absent
f-om Home two or three days during the
pendency of negotiations between Baron
lava aud Secretary Blaine, nnd whil
Minister Porter was attempting to have
Minister Fava's . uppcals for delay lis

A CERTAIN BBIItr.
Many aged people Buffer
greatly with a dry, hard cough,
a painful feeling of .tightness
and oppression across the
chest and a sense of a dull un
comfortable pain in the side.
They carry this about year
after year, sometimes feeling
better and sometimes worse,
but never being able to tbrow
it entirely off. They fancy
that it is one of he accompani
ments of old age which they
must perforce put up with as
best as they can. This need
not be the case, all of these
symptoms are simply the result
of inflammation more or less
pronounced of the air passages
of the lungs, and of the thin
membrane thatcontftutes their
1 hing. They cat. be relieved
by taking Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Care. It is
the best remedy for old age
that was ever discovered be
cause it is in itself stimulating
and nutritious and aids the en
feebled digestive organs to re
gain their former tone.
