ers employed by Argus & Fielilman went
to work at Stewart Hros.'s dock unloading

borers nuniliereil ftliout twenty men. They
had scarcely lies?tui work when a mob of
thirty or more union men appeared on the
scene and lx-uan throwing stones and sticks
at them. The non-unionists returned the
fire with bricks and stones and a pitched
battle, in which several were hurt, was the
result The union men, it is alleged, were

The nollijrcr.-nts ;irew staves, scrap iron
iml other niissiies for a short time, and
then Mctiovern sent part of his men around
a pile of lv.mber with instructions to close
in on the non-union men. They did as dint-ted
and the non-unionists bciuht like
Hirers. Wilkes drew his revolver and
honied: "Come on, Ih'.vs. ff it cost every
one his life." His followers yelled and
Wilkes discharged his weapon. The bul
let did not st i ike any one. MclJovcrn then
rushed nt Wilkes and wrested the revolver
from his hands. Then he knocked him
flown with a club and got away before
Wilkes' men could come to the Yescue.
Policeman Kdward Haley heard the shots
mid soon appeaivd on the scene with a
drawn revolver. He at once took sides
with the laljorcis and tired three shots into
the air to frighten the cane of rioters,
(lathering the Wounded.
This dispersed them. They ran in all di
rections. The patrol wairrai was sent for.
but when it arrived the men had ilisai
pcared. Wilkes was severely pounded in

wound. Thomas 'lark was struck on the

Him at the Fair Indication.
Washington-, Sept. 30. Assistant Secre
tary of the Treasury Xettleton, who has
charge of the government exhibit at the
World's fair, announces that President
Harrison will not attend the dedicatory
exercises of the exposition in Chicago next
month. It has been arranged that Vice
President Morton will represent the presi
dent on that occasion, and that he will be
accompanied to the west by nearly all the
cabinet officer. Xo reason is publicly as
signed for the inability of the president to
attend the exercm, but it is well known
that the condition of Mrs. Harrison is so
precarious that he cannot leave the city
under any circumstances.
The Above Not Authentic.
It was stated at the White House last
night that the report that the president
had officially decided not to attend the
dedicatory exereises at the World's Col
umbian exposition is incorrect. The p res
dent has not authorized any one to make
such a statement. It was said, however,
that hisprojvosed visit was contingent upon
Mrs. Harrison's condition.
