Men Raise Cain on General Principles
Socialists at Work.
London, April ST. The aprehension of
trouble among tbe workingmea of the
continent increases as May Day draws
nearer. Here ia England, where the
trades anions are led by men of moderate
Tiews, everything will pass off as quietly
as an ordinary holiday. In some of the
continental industrial centers, where the
labor movement is controlled by men of
extreme Socialistic views and where the
conditions of labor are harder, the case is
different. Many of the extremists favor
a general strike for an eight-honr day,
but the great mans of the workingmen
are not prepared for the severe struggle
which such a movemert would entail.
But it wilf not be the fault of the hot
heads if strikes are not inaugurated in
many parts of Europe within the next
German Working-men Divided.
In Germany, as a peneral rule, the
vrorkingriien are divided as to their
course. They had resolved to observe the
first Monday in May as May Day, but this
programme has been changed indefei
ence to the wishes of the workiugmen in
other parts of western Europe, and May 1
will be celebrated in an orderly manner
in Berlin and other leading cities and
manufacturing center. For various res
sons there is little danger of an aggres
sive demonstration among the intelligent
workmen of the cities. Eut among tbe
Weitphalian miner there is a different
and dangerout spirit, which the moderate
Socialists are striving , so far in vain, to
keep down. TLe police and military are
guarding liocbuiu and other points in the
mining district in treat force.
Likely To Be Tronble In $pain.
Spain, although not so well provided
with trades unions as tbe rest of Europe,
is more like'y to have serious trouble
than other continental countries. Disor
der is feare-1 in Barceloua and other in
dustrial centers. Tbe Barcelona labor
agitator is fa-t acquiring a reputation as
the most dangerous of his type in Europe.
What Spanish workmen most want is an
increase of wages rather than a shorten
ing of hours. Tbe Barcelona garrison
has been largely reinforced within the
past few days, and if there should be a
rising it will be vigorously met.
In France and Belgium.
The French government has made
thorough preparations to deal with any
disorder, and is resolved Dot to make
half-way work of it. The best assurances
of tbe peace of Paris, Lyons, and Lille
and other labor centers is that the n
arcbists and Socialists understand the
resolute attitude of the government. The
probability of dangerous labor agitation
in Brussels on May 1 is somewhat les
sened by tbe action of the central com
mittee of tbe chamber of deputies in
adopting for recommendation a radical
extension of tbe franchise, which
amounts to household suffrage and takes
in nearly all the workmen who have set
, May Day Preparations at C liica;o.
Chicago, April 27. Considerable activ
ity is slioirn by the labor unions, and
meetings are being held for the purpose
of strengthening the organizations prep
aratory to ranking demands for shorter
hours or more pny, and in some instances
for both. The American Federation of
Labor and the laUir conventions of Eu
rope having named May 1 as the day on
which, from year to year, the struggle for
a reduction of the hours of labor shall I
renewed, thi Chic.iyo unions intend show
ing their strength by na immense parade
WILL PARALYZE THE INDUSTRIES.
Tbe Strike for Eight Honrs in Contem
plation by Coal Miners.
CoLV.visUS, O., April ST. The executive
board of the United Mine Workers is in
session here considering the matter of tha
demand made by the miners for an eight
hour day on May L By arrangement the
presidents of local assembles in Illinois, In
diana, Ohio and Pennsylvania appeared
before the board and made reports as to
the attitude and feeliug of the miners
they represent as to tbe matter.
A Mist Stupendous Lay-Off.
The reports indicated Srmuess on the
part of the miners for the eight hour dav,
evea to a general strike o enforca it. If
the reports continue as unanimously in
favor of the eight-hour day and a strike
to secure it. President Rue will issue an
orde.-to this effect early this week. The
strike, if it occurs, will be stupendous,
stopping all coal mining in the eastern
part of the L'nited States. If it should
continue n wet-lc it is estimated that our
whole industrial system would ba para
lyzsd. Another View of the Matter.
FiTTsJsc.'i:(;, April 27. The ngreomcnt
tif the Hocking Valley, Ohio, miners to
work this ycurat the present rates and
nine. hours a ,dny will break the b:ic!t of
the eight-hour movement of the miners
this year. It is expected that this settle
ment will compel tiie remaining miners to
accept similur terms. All the officers ot
the United Miue Workers association,
who represent all the bituminous coal
miners in tbe United States, after a care
ful survey of the Geld, will busy them
selves now to secure a continuance of
work at present rates and with such hours
as can be agre.-d upon without a strike.
This conclusiou was only arrived at after
careful surrey of the whole field.
ANOTHER STRIKE AT DETROIT.
Michigan Car Works Employes Take s
Wild Day Off.
DETROIT, Mich., April 27. Saturday aft
ernoon 2,600 employes of the Michigan Car
works struck without notice, apparently
incited thereto by tha street car strike.
The first thin after walking out they
smashed nearly every window in tbe
building, and then proceeded to raise
caiu elsewhere. Proceeding to tha works
of the Detroit Iron and Steel company
they called on tbe men there to strike,
but were driven out et the building by
the private police of the company.
Some More Windows Smashed.
A shower of brick and stones shortly
after crashed through the windows of the
molding department of the works, injur
ing one of the men in charge and driving
the others away temporarily. Two patrol
wagons arrived at this juncture and the
strikers dispersed. The officers insist
that the trouble is only the result ot the
friskiness of some of the younger men
who wanted a half holiday, and that all
hands will resume work. Some of the
men, however, declare that this is but the
prelude to a big strike involving all the
departments of the Michigan Car works,
and possibly some of the other large
establishments in this neighborhood.
Socialists In the Coke Regions.
Scottdale, Pa., April 27. The strikers
in this section were addressed here yes
terday by the Socialist leader Jonas, who
urged persistence in the effort to do away
with "white slavery." He said the time
was near at hand when laborers would
throw of the yoke. In speaking of the
coming revolution he said: "Bloodshed is
not neoessary, but should the Pinkertons
of the bosses attack you on the streets
with guns, you know what to do." So
cialism is rapidly growing in the coke re
gions. SAN FRANCISCO'S WELCOME.
The Occidental Metropolis Warmly
Greets President Harrison.
Sax Francisco, April 27. President
Harrison was welcomed to San Francisco
Saturday night by a great display of en
thusiasm. The presidential train arrived
at Oakland about 7 o'clock and the party
was met by a reception committee of citi
zens. General Ruger and staff of the regu
lar army, and General Dimond and staff,
of tbe state trtxips. an I escorted to the
large ferry steamer Piedmont. The presi -dent
occupied a position on the upper
deck, where he obtained a full view ot
tha magnificent display made in his
The City Brilliantly Illuminated.
The Piedmont did not cross to San
Francisco at once, but steamed around
the l ay slowly to enable the president tc
witness the brilliant illuminations on tbe
bay and on the hills in tbe city. The
Piedmont arrived at the foot of Market
street nt 6 o'clock and the crowd which
had collected there was a great one. Upon
landing, the president was welcomed by
Maj. Sanderson and tbe party at once en
tered carriaces and went to Mechanics'
pavilion. Tbe illuminations along the
water front, near the ferry landing, and,
in fact, ail along the iine of march were
the most brilliant ever seen in this city.
A Thnnderons Greeting.
As the Piedmont steamed around the
bay tbe cruiser Charleston and the for
tifications at Alcatraz thundered forth a
welcome that shook the city. All the ves
sels in the harbor were elaborately
trimmed with bunting. When the land
ing was made a mighty shout from the
assembled thousands went up, and the
route to the Pavilion was packed with
people, who kept up one continuous ova
tion of swelling cheers. Everywhere along
the line 'Welcome"' and similar legends
appeared, while the buildings were brill
iant with the national colors.
Reception at the Pavilion.
At tbe pavilion in this city the presi
dent was received by Governor Markbam,
Mayor Sanderson, Senator Stanford, and
others. The crowd was very large,
thousands of people pressing in after the
presidential party. While the people
were gathering Gen. Harrison held an in
formal reception on the small stage.
After tbe president had entered the stand
the military formed in long lines, be
tween which a steady stream of people
passed for over an hour. As they passed
the president the men raised their hats.
The chief executive responded by bowing
and waving his hand. The president
made no speech, but it was 11 o clock be
fore he could get awny to the Palace
hotel and retire for tbe niht.
Another Ouiet SnndtT.
Tbe president spent a quiet Snnday in
San Francisco. In company with Mayor
Sanderson and ex-Congressman .Morrow
he attended the first Presbvterian
church. Mrs. Harrison, Mrs. McKee and
Mrs. Diminick went to another church.
In the afternoon Postmaster General
Wanamaker addressed a great concourse
of Sunday-school children at the Calvary
Presbyterian church, and later he talked
to nearly t.COC men at a meeting held un
der the auspicies of the Young Men's
Christian association at the Republican
MYSTERIOUS CASE OF POISONING.
The Widow or a Khode I.laml Million
aire the Victim of a DitstarJlr Crime.
Denver, Colo., April 27. Of all the
dastardly crimes perpetrated in the west
probably the worst came to liUt Friday
night. A short time ago Mrs. Jereoth
mel B. Barnaby, the widow of the late
millionaire merchant of Providence, R. L .
and who had also enormous emporiums in
Boston and Kansas City, came west tt
visit Mrs. Edward Worrell, of this city.
Drank Deadly Dose.
A few days after she arrived here a
small package postmarked Boston, Mass.,
was received by her, which, when opened,
was found to contain a small bottle ol
whisky with a card bearing tbe words
"Fine old whisky from your friend in the
woods." Mrs. Barnaby laughed a great
deal over the matter, and thought no
more of it until April i:;li, when feeliug
fatigued f lie thought she would like some
of the whisky. She and Mrs. Worrell
took a small drink each. Soon afterward
they were both taken very ill.
The Whisky Fall or Arwnio.
Doctors were called, but could do noth
ing to relieve Mrs. Barnaby, although the
other lady recovered in a day or so. Mrs.
Barnaby kept sinking until April 19,
when she died in great ngony. Tbe
whisky was analyzed and found to con
tain arsenic in large quantities. The re
mains of Mrs. Barnaby was sent east
Friday night. The facts have been kept
quiet because tbe friends thought it
would facilitate the discovery of the pois
oner. Mot Whisky After AIL
The poisonons liquid which caused tbe
death of Mrs. Barnaby has been
found to be simply water colored witu
some organic matter, and containing two
grains of arsenic to tbe ounce, instead of
whisky, as was at first supposed.
The Town Darning Up.
Minneapolis, Minn., April 27. A Trio
one special from St. Charles, Minn., says:
Tbe whole town is burning up. High
winds are blowing, and there is practical
ly no water supply. A dozen business
houses are already destroyed, and the fir

Tbe town has about 2300 inhabitants.

ders A Day of "Recuperation.
SAX Fraxcieco, April 27. Sarah Bern
hardt did a star piece of acting Saturday
night, but it was behind the scenes and
only professionals witnessed it. She had
just come off the
stage after the great
third act in "La Tos

rushed up to her

HTiiii handled by several
Grand opera house scene shifters because
he persisted in comiDg upon the stage
against orders of Manager Bouvier. The
scene shifters promptly knocked him out
when he became insolent.
The Turk Went a-How line for Sara.
Bernhardt was in her dressing room
when she heard her favorite servant's call
for aid. She descended upon the four
scene-shifters like a living fury and
poured forth a storm of French exple
tives that would have withered them had
they understood the Gallic tongue. As it
was the only thing they caught was her
demand for a revolver, and as she looked
as she does when fingering the dagger be
fore killing E-icarpia they all fell back in
fright. Then the members of the com
pany rushed to Sarah's assistance and
ranged themselves beside her on the
Meant Every Word of It
The scene-shifters also assembled ia all
-heir strength, and for three-quarters of
.n hour there was just as pretty a row at
he opera house as ever occurred at a Don
nybrook fair. More French was hurled
iind more 'tar fat" patois was heard
l ban tbe flies ever listened to before.
Meanwhile the audience was wailing and
'vondering why the performance did tot
c;o on. Sarah refused to continue unless
t very man jack of the scene snifters was
relegated to the deepest pits of oblivion
iind tied there. "Je leur arracberais les
Tens," she cried and she meant it.
Couldn't Scare Bernhardt.
The scene shifters threatened to drop
I alf a ton of scenery, which was hung up
ia the flies, upon the great Frenchwoman
t nless she subsided, but she refused to
subside and dared them to do their worst.
I'inally, after several minor engagements

eyes and a loss of French blood, the diva

sne insisted, however, that tbe men
who had beaten Augelo should be re
moved, and they were taken away by a
special policeman. After the perform
ance Sarah demanded police protection
a ad, accompanied by two officers, she and
Angelo and one of the company retired to
tiieir hotel in a carriage. She passed out
through a big crc-wd, but there was no
demonstration. Her wrath may have
b -en sharpened by the fact that she played
to a half bouse at the Sat nrday matin-1
and Saturday night. Ticket speculatc-s
bought seats by the score, but had them
left on their bands.
