y'XEtv Yor.K.June 11. "L'Onire," a Port-au-Prince
paper, devoted to the povernient
of Hippolyte, published in its number of
May 3(i a raiher threatening paragraph in
regard .to the conduct of the foreign con
suls during and since the recent bloody
occurrence iu the llaytiaa capital. It is
Usual in such circumstances for the de
feated belligerents to find refuse in the
consulates, which enjoy iu llayti and in
the Spanish American countries the an
r.cient "ritiht of asylum," recognized in the
lfliddle ujjes as belonging to church build
ings. Invaded the Consulate.
It apfti that the soldiers of lien. Hip
polyt tulve not respected that right this
time, and that they have forcibly taken
from the Dominican and other consulates
at Port-au-I'riuce political refugees, who
weresdiet immediately. The paper L'Or
tlre, without alluding to those executions
or to t"he violation of consular residences,
speaks as follows: '-There are people who
imagine that they are safe because they
are iu the consulates. Very good: Hut
how is it that persons who went out from
a consulate, in order to attack the jail,
have entered there again, after the flight
of their accomplices? What is the right
such people make use of, and under
what right do the consuls act as they do?
Will Have It Questions Answered.
"Are llie consulates a kind of fortress
from which they sally forth when they ex
pect ii win. and to which they return as
8oon,iLs Uy have lost the fight f And
L'tlrdre add.-.: "That will make the sub
ject of another article." It is evident that
this p&miised article will lie an arraign
ment of the a-sylum privileges en
joyed by the consulates, which
are so useful in mitigating the
horrors attending the frequent revolu
tions, especially in llayti. In case the
government of Gen. Hippolyte should dare
to claim diplomatically, or not to respect
practically, the consular privilege of asy
lum, which was always recoguized, the
foreign powers of Europe and America
cannot fail to unite and to assert by an
ultimatum of an international character
the rijrht of their consuls to protect polit
Jnstifies the Slaughter.
The same paper attacks the defeated in
surgents in a ferocious manner. "The
affair J it says, "did not last long; but its
ffchsefjutjnces have Keen bloody. They
wire what they ought to have lieen; we
Pay noiviore about it, and it is urgent that
they should continue some time longer.
The actual government is on the defen
sive. What is true for the private citizen
is true for the government. When you
kill in defending yourself, you kill well
that is, you kill according to all legal
forms. The rebels must le annihilated,
and also the party which they represent."
Want Some More Itloodshed.
fcIt is sufficient,'' says L.'l)rdre, to give
the name of the secret chief of the insur
gents to convince the republic that the
revolutionists of Port-au-Prince are ban
dits of the worst kind. Iveiritiniists, Pi
quantists. Projihatists, Canalists, Nation
als, and Liberals, even former II ippolytists,
have unanimously p-nutted themselves un
der the lianner of St. Surin Francois Mau
igat. lint the name of Manigat has killed
them. We say kill, because those who are
not killed will soon lie. Any other can
didacy, actually supported, would also
haTe killed them."
WILL DIVIDE THE CHURCH.
Several Secessions from the Krformed
l"reliyterian Communion. .
PlTTSCri:G, Pa., June 11. The trouble
in the Reformed Pi-e-liyterian church
came to a crisis ye-tenl; y. when the synod,

libel and devisive courses in advocating
the exercise of the elective frauchise by
memliers which latter is forbidden by the
laws of the church the following mem
liers: lievs. E. M. Milligan, J. K. J. Milli
gmi. W. II. Keed, W. L C. Sampson, and
J. C. K. Milligan. The scenes while the
vote wh.- !eing taken were very exciting
and there is every iudicat ion of a big se
cession from the chun h. Indeed, the se
cession began during the vote.
Men Who Will Leave the Sect.
Pevs. J. F. Carson, John Feaze, and E.
M. Smith refused to vote, and announced
Iheir wiLbdrawal from the church. Kev.
S. K. TUofnpson told the syuoil that the
action was illegal, and that it would hear
from the people later. The expelled min
isters spoke, and said they would appeal
to their presbyteries. All those who voted
no presented a protest, and asked that it
lie spread upon the minutes.

other officer received a bullet through his
helmet. John Highstetter, one of the

exciting disturbance in the history of the
strike and it gave rise to the first pitched
battle the police of the city have ever
A Regularly Organized A flair.
The strkers held a meeting Tuesday
night, which continued until nearly mid
night. Messengers were sent out to vari
ous other unions,including the teamsters,
common laborers, and brewers, that there
was work to be done, and naming the rail
road bridge in the extreme northern part
of the city as the rendezvous. The strik
ers repaired to the bridge in small squads
by various routes so as not to attract at
tention, and there they were joinad by
many others until there were over 2tn
men on the ground. At 3 o'clock the mob
moved on the Sweet Street station of the
cable road, intending to blow up the wheel
pit with dynamite and destroy the track.
The Police Had Information,
The police received early information of
the impending attack, and a squad of
thirty officers was sent to the station and
concealed in-hind fences, trees, and in the
grass to await developments. Two of the
mob who were sent forward as scouts to
see if the field was clear were captured
and sent as prisoners to town. The mob
was but a short distance liehind the scouts,
and when they appeared over the embank
ment and began the attack on the tracts
the police came out from ambush and or
dered the men to disperse. The mob re
sponded with a volley of stones, and after
the first surprise, continued to advance.
The police again ordered them to disperse,
and this time the response war. a score of
Cold Lead for the Rioters.
The police then attacked the mob with
clubs. The shooting became faster and
more alarming, and the officers fired a
volley in the air. Half of the mob scat
tered at this, but the rest made a rush
forward for close fighting. The police
then fired directly in the face of the mob
and by a vigorous use of t heir clubs scat
tered the last of the rioters, who left thir
teen of their number behind as prisoners.
It is known that several of the rioters
were wounded, but they were helped
away by their friends. Later in the day
the police learned that John Highstetter,
a teamster, with a wife and two children
and a comfortable home of his own, was

Kirers. Two of the prisoners 'have made
confessions, giving full details of the con
spiracy and the names of the participants,
i nd more arrests will follow. Detective

was one of the early morning squad, and

and is lielieved to lie dangerously hurt.
Wonnded Men in Hiding.
It is also known positively that another
man was shot in the arm, but he ha not
l-en found yet, his friends keeping him
uader cover to save him from arrest. It is
reported that others were hurt, but they
a:-e keeping out of the way until the
trouble blows over. Three of the thirteen
prisoners were hurt in the fight, but all
will recover. None of the others was
w junded, but several had narrow escapes.
Six More Rioters Arrcstei.

yesterday, but it was quickly over. Six of
thj crowd were arrested, ami three of the
prisoner" were found armed with revolvers
and with more cartridges in their pockets.

the trouble. Four hundred extra police
