that the fire department indicated in as

Pakis. May 5 The slauchter of rioters
1 at Fourmies on May 2 created a scene iu
the chamber of deputies yesterday. The
deputies vho are Socialists and Boulan
gists proposed to demand a vote of censure
on the government, on the ground that
. Constant, minister of the interior, was re-
sponsible for the bloodshed. Constans,
after replying in explanatory terms to a
question hs to the Fourmies affair, and
giving his version of the matter, holding
that neither the governor nor the troops
were to blame for the disaster, was aston
ished to see M. Roche, the deputy repre
senting the Seventeenth electoral district
of the Seine, spring to his feet and shout
Roche Would Have His Say.
A tremendous sensation followed. Mem
bers shouted at and threatened each other
vigorously. Finally order was restored,
and Roche ordered expelled for tho day
Xo sooner was this action decided upou
than M. Roche again sprang to his feet,
and, shaking his list at those of his asso
ciates who had been most active in bring
ing about his proposed expulsion and cen
sure, the anry deputy yelied: "You are
a lot of varlets worthy o your master."
This was more than the presiding officer
could Mibmit to, o he ordered M. Rocne
to be removed hy force from the chamber.
This was eventually done amid one of the
wildest seer-s every witnessed in the
chambt-i of deputies. Then the govern
ment was sustained by a vote of 50
Constatm to t lush Anarchy.
Coustar.s, sustained by this overwhelm
ing vote of confidence, lias taken vigorous
measures to stamp out the anarchist
troubles at Fourmies. He has approved
the act iou of the commauder of the troops
in firing upou the mob, and ordered an
additional force of cavalry to the scene,
with instructions to pursue tbe same
vigorous course as on Saturday, should
there be another outbreak, which is prob
able. A Woman's Gory Oath.
The women o! Fourmies and the ad
joining villages are more excited than the
men, aud last evening a number of them
rushed about from house to house, calling
upon husbands and brothers to avenge
the dead. One woman whose husbai.d
was shot in the massacre, as it is called,
dipped her hand in the blood that welled
from his side and swore vengeance
against the -bourgois" republic The ex
citement has not subsided, although the
people appear to be somewhat cowed by
the overwhelming number of the troops.
SAYS CONSUMPTION IS CONTAGIOUS.
And That There Is Hunger to Human
ity from Cnnnnm ptive Cattle.
Tf ASHINUTOX Cur, May 5. The confer
ence of the state boards of health met
here yesterday. The principal speaker of
the day was Dr. V. II. Uryce, of Toronto,
Ont., who maintained that consumption
was contagious in its nature, aud the more
the disease is understood the less credence
is placed in thedangers from heredity and
more from contact. Dr. Dryce also found
a connection oetweeu consumption in the
human species and iu cattle, ami held
that the rate of increase and decrease be
tween tne two is proportionate. He advo
cated partial isolation of cousumptire pa
tients, aud proper supervision and sanita
tion by health officer where the disease is
known to exist. Dr. V'aughu. of Ann Ar
bor, Mich., agreeu with Dr. Uryce in the
main, but doubted the extreme danger
from infected cattle. Tbe same views
were held by several other speakers.
