Trying to Work a Compromise Plant
er with the Merchants.
Kiw Orj.Baks, Nov. 8 The general
strike is more general than ever. The de
cision of the Typographical union to join
the striking phalanx nerved the other
bodies which were neutral in the matter
and ail of the labor unions which signed
the eall for the general strike are now out
except the cotton labon-i-s. The latter are
a most Important part of the Amalgamated
Council, bnt in the Nee of an idle summer,
the low of labor which a strike would en
tail and the opposition of the powerful cot
ton exshange which would be aroused, the
cot ton unions have been allowed to remain
at work. It ia understood, however that
the men are readj to quit work when the
committee gives the word, although the in
structions are that evea if the order comes
the men must ta.UA aor work which
they have began.
Merchant Will Close Therr SKope.
Vol a nreet car is running, bo work is
being done and the only sign of activity is
in the wholesale grocery district against
which the strike is principally directed.
The new men there are willing to remain
at woTk nntil violence is so general as to
make it unsafe for them to continua The
topping of their labor would lead to the
eloMQK of the wholesale groceries till the
strike is well over, the merchants saying
that tb-y are ready to close from thirty to
ninety days and fill their country orders di
rect from the west. The strike of the print
ers has the effect of closing all the news
papers except The Daily States, which the
printers have been fighting for several
yennt. There were reports that attempts
wonld be made to stop the paper from ap
pearing, but tha place has been well guard
ed ami the pnper will he issued as usual.
Fighting Labor rronerlptlon.
Tbe proposition made through the gov
ernor, to arbitrate the question of hours
and wares, but to leave the question of
unionism entirely alone, has not yet been
responded to by the labor side, but it is
hardly thought thnt it will be accepted,
as tbe ery unionism is made the rallying
canse of the labor bodies. The merchants
also say that they will not recede further.
Said I'resident Odi ndahl, of the board of
trade: "It is not unionism we are fighting,
but the abuse of unionism and the dicta
torial demand that none but union men be
employed." The governor is keeping his
staff within call and the militia is ready to
come out at short notice.
Fears A boat the Gas and Wat.
Ooverncr Foster said at noon yesterday
that there hai been no change in the strike
situation. In the event of a serious clash,
resulting in rioting, the governor will be
on band to cope with the situation. He re
realizes the danger that is menacing all
classes of the community and will prevent
lose of life if i. is within his power to do so.
There is a widespread feeling as a result
of a statement of the gas people tha. unless
the utmost care is exercised dangerous ex
plosions may follow tha cutting off of the
gas supply. People are also great.
worried at tbe prospect of a cutting oil of
the water supply, which would place toe
ity at the mercy of the fire fiend.
THE MILITIA IN READINESS.
laflae-nee of the Strike on Politic KfTort
for a Settlement.
Governor Foster has his militia in read
iness for immediate action, but the belief
is well grounded that no decisive steps will
be taken until tomorrow, as any serious
trouble yesterday or today would not only
have complicated the election here, but in
other sections as wlL The idleness of
such a large body of negroes and the des
peration ensuing because of over two weeks'
loss of earnings in feared now, and the
Democracy will have a hard time to main
tain its supremacy in consequence, as the
crowds of strikers and the abrence of
street cars will serve to keep many of the
better element away from the polls. In the
meantime the governor is using ever7
rrenns to bring about an amicable termina
tion. Employers Make a Ooncesiiion.
At his request the merchants made a con
cession and agreed to waive the demand
that the strikers return to work before any
arbitration takes place. Tbey had already
agreed to arbitrate upon the question of
boors and wages, declining, however, to
argue the demand that they employ nore
but onion men, although they are willing
to agree not to discriminate against onion
men. The governor then referred the agree
ment to the labor onions and they said it
was too late to consider the matter Sunday
night, but promised to meet yesterday
morning and to give an answer by noon.
Up to last niKht be bad not received any
answer. The merchants did not do any
thing yesterday bnt carry on their business
as well as tney could, and determine to
stand firm upon their last proposition.
Tbey received strong promisee of support
Bona ine inmnermen, miners ana outers.
Planters Oppose the Strikers.
Some of tbe largest planters of the state
were in the city yesterday and said that the
Strike meant so much to them that they
were willing to answer the first call tor
i and money sent oat by the merchants.

j One center of at-tiv ity yesterday in the
' city was the oity hall, where the mayor and
! his advisors ?mU the day. During the
! morning a prurlamation was issued caLin '
upe n a!l persons to preserve the peace, and
warning thos present.that any disordt r or
violence woui.i be repressed by the sttr iest
measures. The mobt serious feature of
. the situation was the suspension of the two
, lisbting systems gas and electricity and
some alarm was felt when the officers of
' the two electric light companies called on
: the mayen ind said they thought thiy
could furni.tli light if granted protection
for men engaged to take the place of the
btrikers. This was readily promised,
j Look Mnch I.Ike a Holiday,
j The city had a holiday appearance nearly
everywhere. Merchants say that a n'im
' ber of union men are wiling to return, but
the merchants did not propose to be made
targets of by the unions nntil they were
! ready for a vigorous defense and so de
, elined to take them back for the pre-nt.
j The strike also failed to affect the nm
: papers to tbe extent expected, and the enly
paper which has so far failed to appear is
The Item, which is the official organ of the
strikers, although that is also expected to
appear this evening.

New York, Xot. 8. Chief of Tolice
George C. Tenney, of Elizabeth, was not
born when Mary Doyle began her remark
able criminal career, and was a school xiy

town, so Mary was considerably surprised
when, after an absence of thirty years, -she
was arrested in Elizabeth aod, hav.ng

She confessed her identity and talked a lit

Lord Clanriearde Refutes to Testify
Foreign New Item.
Dublin, Nov. 8. The scene in the hear
ing of the evicted tenants' commission yes
terday when Justice Mathews refused to
allow Lord Clanricarde's lawyer, Mr. Car
son, to cross-examine the witnesses called
by the commission was quite a sensational
one, though brief. The purpose of Justice
Mathews in ruling ont crot,s examination at
this time is to expedite the proceedings and
enable the commission to make at least a
preliminary report by the end of January.
The Nationalists present were so delighted
at Carson's defeat that they could hardly
be restrained from openly jeering at him,
O'Brien Couldn't Keep Quiet.
William O'Brien did remark in a tone
loud enough to be heard all over the room:
"Now you know the difference between a
court of justice and a court of coercion."
The joy of the Nationalists will be better
understood when it is explained that Car
son h.-us been known for years as one of
the most skillful and successful agents of
thft landlord. He has also been the lead
ii.g crown lawyer in the prosecution of
."cost of the trials of Nationalists and has
been so accustomed to having his way with
the judges that yesterday's experience
was as novel as it wasex.isperating for him.
Lord Clanriearde It-fused to Talk.
When Lord Clanriearde was called as a
witness he declined to give any information.
This is regarded as an judication that the
Tory landlords mean to stand aloof and
give tbe commission no assistance in its
labors. J. Roche, M. P. for East Galway,
testified before the commission as to the
history of Lord Clanricarde's struggle with
his tenants and the pnwent position of the
contest. Lawyer Carson, on behalf of Lord
Clanriearde, wished tocrowvexamine Roche,
but Justice . Matthews, chairman of the
commission, refused to pern.it him to do
so, saying that witnesses for the tenants
would be first examined, and then wit
nesses for to landlords, and that ques
tions must fv put through the commis
sion. Th en It AVa ttie Row Took Plfice.
Lawyer Carson then retorted that the in
quiry was a fart and a sham, and that he
would not prostitute his position as an ad
vocate by taking any further action in it.
Justice Mathews replied that Mr. Carson's
remarks were impertinent and a disgnice
to the Irish bar. William Kenny, M. P.,
who appeared for Smith Barry, the Tippe
rary landlord indorsed what Mr. Carson
bad said, and Justice Matthews retorted
hotly that Knny was impertinent. Messrs.
Carson and Kenny then retired.

A Society that Wanted to Take Chance
for a Riot.
Lokdok, Nov. 8. The Anti-Popery asso
ciation has applied to the police authori
ties for permission to have two floats fol
low the lord mayor's procession. One float
was to illustrate the methods claimed to be
used by the Roman Catholic church in the
conversion of heretics. The other was a
scene emblematic of the triumphs of Pro
testantism over the alleged tyranny of
Rome. Tbe police declined to allow any
such demonstration, as the possibilities of
a row are at present sufficient without
adding an exhibition which would certain
