St. Locis, June 23. A race riot between
laljorers employed by Contractor Workley
at the Chain of Rocks, where the new
waterworks are being constructed, oc
curred at 2 o'clock Sunday niorniiy; ia
which one Italian was dangerously
stabbed, over twenty of his fellow-countrymen
driven from the camp, aad their val
uables aad money confiscated by the gang
of Americans, and other laborers making
the attack. The riot was primarily
caused by the admittance into camp of a
lot of Italian laborers, and the report that
Contractor Workley had gone to Chicago
for more. All Saturday a feeling of revolt
against the employment of Italian labor
had been gaining in strength and bitter
ness. Proceeded to Fill Cp with Whisky.
As soon as the laborers were paid oE in
the evening they congregated at a saloon
Just outside the city limits, whew they re
mained gambling aad drinking bad whis
ky until the entire party was crazy drunk.
About 1 o'clock Sunday morning he party
broke up asd started for their sleeping
quarters. On the way over some one sug
gested that they "drive out the d d Da

drunken crowd rushed into the tents of
the sleeping foreigners armed with sticks,
clubs, knives whatever else they could
lay their hands on.

The fight did not last long. The Ital
ians were at too great a dudvantage and
after a brief resistance they fled in terror,
leaving behind all their belongings. They
carried away CataJize Francisco, one of
their comrades, fatally Wounded by a st; j

way to this city, where they reported tbe
matter to the police. Francisco was

THE M03 WAS ON HAND,
Rut the Sheriff Saved His l'ri-oner by
I'ottiai; liim in Jail.
MoSTfcOSE, Minn.. June 23. John
Mazue. 15 years old. was arrested yester
day morning on suspicion of having mur
dered the 13-year-old girl. Annie Brunden.
Mazue lives at Montrose. but
had leen fishing at Waver'y lake oa
Thursday, the day the girl was miss
ing. He has acknowlwiirwi foitowinu her
down the track from hc1kwI. but claims
that he turned uS when LiUf way to Mont
rose and went to a house near by. He did
not. however, reach home until S o'clock
and gives a very unsatisfactory account of
A TrII-Tale ltloody Handkerchief.
A coroner's inquest was held yesterday
afternoon and the jury held Mazue for the
murder. An infuriated mob impatiently
awaited the decision of tbe jury, intending
to lynch the prisoner, but before the de
cision was handed in the deputy sheriff
took him from the room and Imiged hiL.
in the counts jail, where he will remain
and await further developments. The
general opinion is that he is guilty and his
actions and appearance justify the e'usjii
cian. The sheriff, in searching his person,
discovered a bldy lmndlverchief iu his
possession, vviuch he doubtless Intd used at
the time of the murder.

GOV. FIFER SIGNS THE LAW.
The Australian Ballot Act Put In Proper
Shape and Signed.
Spbingfield, Ills., June 23. Governor
Fifer yesterday signed house bill 591,
known as the Australian ballot bill, sent
it to the office of the secretary of hum,
and on the 1st of J u!y next k will lecome
a law. Sect ion 2S, which was omited
from the enralhed bill as originally laid
before the governor, was inserted in iu
proper place When the error was discov
ered Speaker Crafts, Lieutenant Governor
Ray and Enrolling and Engrossing Clerk
Wagoner were duly notified and request
ed to come to the capital Sir. Wagoner
got in Sunday night and was followed by
Speaker Crafts and Lieutenant Governor
Ray yasterday afternoon.
How the Section was Left Out.
The officers examined the record and
found that the section was in the bill as
it passed the legislature. The clerk en
rolled the section on a separate page and
inserted it between the pages ending with
section 27 and commencing with section
29. The presiding officers certified the
correctly enrolled bill to the governor
and the latter immedia' affixed his
signature on the last da$"ftowed him by
law for action. The theory of all who
examiaed the incorrectly enrolled bill is
that an entire page containing section is
had been inadvertently dropped by the
clerk in putting the bill together. All
other bills remaining ia the governor's
hands were disposed of during the day.
