The Strike of Shopmen on the
KNIGHTS OF, LABOR NOT IN LINE.
Tbe Walk-Oat ' Also Fails To Be Complete
as to tbe Other lolons Cause of K. of
L. Opposition ProEreii of the Move
Those Lake Shore Knglneers An Ohio
Labor Law To Be Tested la the Courts.
Omaha, April IS The strike ordered in
the shops of the Union Pacific is a mixeil
up affair, and the men are to go out in
sections apparently At any rate th ey did
not all quit at noon . yesterday. There is
also a complication by which the K. of Ia.
men are in opposition to the strike The
strikers here cUim that fully $00 mt n are out
nd that the machinists and boiler makers
are out in all the shops on the system. The
Union Pacific company asserts that the
men out do not number over 500 and that
most of those who are alleged to have quit
will be hack to work soon. The railroad
officials are reticent, hoping that a little
time will serve to their advantage and ex
pecting that tho men Till soon be more in
clined to yield. The striker declare that
they have no "compromise to make, wiil
appoint no committee to seek a eenference
with the railway officials and that the first
overtures must be made by the latter.
Where the E. of L. Comes In.
The unioiis also claim that tbey have
promises that eugineers and trainmen will
not handle engines or cirs repaired by
"scab" labor. The Knights of Iabor remain
firm in their opposition to the strike, de
claring that an eight-hour day is what they
want, and avowing their hostility to the
policy of doinir more work by increasing
the day from eis;ht to nine Lours rather
than by employing more men. An agree
ment, they say, such as that asked for by
the unions is in direct coLilict with an
advantageous understanding reached bj
the kniehts -.vith the railroad company last
falL The knights, though smiewhat
strong in the other departments, are wesk
among the machinists an boilermakers.
Signifirant Official Action.
Union Pacific shop officials yesterday
tore down the framed agreement made last
fall and posted in the shops, which is inter
preted to signify that this agreement had
been broken by the strike and that thee
trades had no. longer auy standing wilh
the company. ' Reports from Denver say
that the meu did not go ont but will go to
day. Should the strike so into effect there,
about fifteen trades unious wiil waik
out of the Denver shops while about 200 of
the men who belong to the Knights of
Labor will probably remain at their posts.
At the Union Pacific shops at Armstrong,
near Kansas City, in Kansas, about 140
men quit. The strikers went to the ottice
of the division master mechanic, Iloberts,
to see what ho was going to do about it,
but Mr. Roberts could not do anything.
Many of the strikers went to their homes,
while some lingered .about tbe shops.
Jiot a 'Welcoiae Order at Cheyenne.
A dispatch from Cheyenne says that tha
shopmen went out.execpt the blacksmiths,
but that many of the striking mechanic
are dissatisfied with the order which com
pels them to quit work. At the meeting
yesterday afternoon this element gave ex
pression to views antagonistie to the
course that has been pursued. The black
smiths and woodworkers refused to be
come a party to the arbitrary action of
the men who have struck. At Salt Lake
City fifty men quit work in obedience to
Denver Will Send a Committee.
Denver, April IS. At a meeting of the
Union Pacific shop men it was decided to
send a committee to Omaha to see if some
arrangements couid not be made to avoid
a strike here. Until this committee is
heard from it is probable no strike will oc
cur in this city.
ENGINEERS WHO WERE "LEFT."
Lake Shore Men to Wait for the Supreme
Court Itefore Action.
CLEVELAND. April 18. The Lake Shore
engineers and firemen are dissatisfied with
th .f iisid of the officials to take back iuto
the service of the company the men who
quit work in March in preference to hand
ling trains partly composed of Ann Arbor
cars. They have decided, however, that
they will not take action at present, but
will wait until the questions now at issue
are decided in the supreme court, to which
the Toledo case has been appealed. Should
the decision be adverse an appeal is to be
made to William K., Cornelius, and Fred
erick W. Vanderbilt, who are directors and
principal stockholders in the company.
William K. Vanderbilt is chairman of the
board, and the only man authorized to
Issue instructions to President John New
ell, to whom the refusal to reinstate is
credited by the meu.
Testing an Ohio Labor Law.
CiKCUiKATl, April IS. In 18SJ the legis
lature passed a law making it a misde
meanor for an agent of any company to
coerce or threaten to discharge any employe
because of his membership in any lawful
labor organization. The Cincinnati Edison
Electric company, through Superintendent
Davis, last week notified tbe employes of
the plant that they must choose between
the union and their jobs. They stuck to
the union and were locked out. - Seven of
the men have sworn out a warrant against
Davis under the statute referred to. The
result of tbe case will decide tha validity of
British View of tbe Toledo Decision.
LONDON, April 18. In a leader concern
ing the decision of Judge Ricks in the case
of the Ann Arbor boycott the Daily Chron
icle says: "The Toledo decision gives a
great stimulus to railway nationalization.
The American railway monopolists, anx
ious to eecCpV tha Scylla of working-man's
dictation, have fallen into tha Chary bdis of
public control; for tha decision can ba de
feuded only on the principla that tha rail
' ways are practically public property.
AWFUL SEISMIC DISTURBANCE.
The Island of Zante Shaken to Pieces and
Zante. April 18. Cable to the New
York Herald. An earthquake of terrific
force has occurred on this island, and the
ground has since been in constant move
ment. The island is entirely ruined. When
the shock struck this city the air rang with
the shrieks of people buried beneath the
rnins. The streets present a terrible spec
tacle. Entire blocks of bouses are lost. The
theatre and club, forming a big building,
were thrown down. Tbe killed in the town
number fourteen and in the villages six
teen. The injured nuiiiber about 200.
The victims are less numerous than
might have been expected owing to the
hour of the shock. In the villages the de
struction is incalculable. Not one stone
is left upon another. The whole island
must be rebuilt. Poverty is so general
and the future so obscure that the emigra
tion of half the population will be neces
sary to save the rest.
CARLISLE'S FINANCIAL COURSE.
An Indication Thereof Gathered from
Some Remarks lie Made.
Washington, April 13. The question
that is on the continual "go" in this city
now is with reference to the gold situa
tion what will Carlisle do about itf
Some time ago Carlisle intimated what his
views were when the gold in the treasury
wa.- at about as low an ebb as at present.
He said then that be thought the gold ex
ports would cease before a great while and
that if it became necessary he would use
part of the gold reserve and replenish it by
a bond issue if the treasury did not regain
gold naturally. This probably indicates
the secretary's present views. It is said
that the president is more favorably in
clined to a bond issue than is tha secre
tary. It is understood that the department
now has under consideration the redemp
tion of treasury notes issued under the
silver law of 1S90 in silver alone. Hereto
fore they have been redeemed in coin. It
is believed that this would tend to ease the
situation somewhat and aid in keeping
gold in the treasury.
GREAT DEAL IN IRON AND STEEL-
Thirteen Plants Combine with a Capital
of SI 8,000,000.
Cincinnati, April 18. The announce
ment is made of an immense iron and steel
combine that includes thirteen of the most
extensive companies in Ohio and Pennsyl
vania. They are organized under one man
agement, with a capital stock of $12,000,
000, and Cincinnati is to be a distributing
point. All t'ae preliminaries to the com
bine have been finally arranged. May 1
has been settled upon as the day on which to
elect officei s and incorporate the company,
besides sc-ttling ujkjd. its name.
The first move after organization will be
to shut down many of the lesser plants and
run the larger ones to the full limit. The
companies that have signed the agreement
are the Ohio Steel company; Andrews
Hitchcock company; Union Iron and Steel
company, which controls the Cartwright
mill, Yonuifstown, Warren, Girard &
Poineroy mills; Youngs town Steel com
pany; Brown Bunnell Iron company. Brier
Iron and Coke company, Andrews Bros.
company, and the Mahoning Valley Iron
Coney Island. April IS. All the sports
from Xew York, Brooklyn, Jersey City,
and the vicii-ity, and many from Boston
came to the Coney Island Athletic club last
night to see Tom Williams, of Australia,
and Billy Smith, of Boston, fight two
rounds for a purse of &3,0u0, the loser to
take $1,000, and the welterweight cham
pionship of the world. It was a rough-and-tumble
fight and a hurricane ona while it
lasted, both men beiug severely punished.
Williams, however, threw up his own

mission authorizing Launou to serve as

Cincinnati, April 19. A fire broke out
last night in the Home Steam laundry,
opposite the Arcade on Ilace street, and
skimmed alonir on the top floors of the

keeping the lower floors flooded in their
efforts to reach the running flames. The
loss will reacu $10,000, mostly water dam

Foreign Musicians Not Uarred.
New YoitK, April IS. The Morning Ad
vertiser says that despite the efforts of the
Musical Mutual Protection union the 100
German musicians now on their way to
this country as passengers aboard tha
steamship Trave will not be debarred from
landing. This is Secretary Carlisle's de
cision, aud it was given on Friday, but was

The Situation as It Looks in
FIEEOE FIGHT WITH A 1I03T3 MOB.
Don't Trills With tbe Teeth.
If our teeth were renewed as are
our nails, they might not need con
stant care. But teeth don't repeat
themselves after childhood. The
proper thing t do is to use Sozodont,
which preserves their health and
beauty. It never fails.
Fourteen of the Civic Guard Wounded,
Three of Them Fatally, and Four of tbe
Mob Known To Be Killed Government
Taking- Extraordinary Measures Des
perate Struffgie at Antwerp.
Brussels, April 18. Extraordinary mili
tary measures have been adopted to pre
serve ordei in this city. Strong enforce
ments of chasseurs and carbiners are ar
riving with every train. The government
has issued a decree calling out all the mili
tia for the defense of the state. This means
the mobilization of 45,000 troops against
the workingmen. The turbulence of the
working classes amounts to little less than
a revolution, and it is not known how soon
Prussian and Austrian troops may be seen
on the stteets, if order is not restored.
These power? have tbe right according to
treaty to help put down rebellion, but
France would look with jealous and angry
eyes on the execution of that right.
Fierce Fight at Moos.
A fierce fight has taken place at Mons.
There the turbulence began with an ex
plosion of dynamite and the noise of the
explosion seemed to be a signal for the out
break of violence. The strikers at once
proceeded to take possession of the town,
and collected in large crowds. They pa
raded the streets singing the "Carmagnole"
and the "Marseillaise." An attempt to dis
perse them aith the civic guards was paid
no attention to and tbe order was given to
Bullets Did Deadly Work.
The mob defied the guards to fire upon
them and threw heavy stones, bottles and
other missiles at them. The guard fired
upon the crowd, but this did not effect their
dispersal. On the contrary, it only infuri
ated them and a charge en masse was made
upon the guard. A desperate hand-to-hand
conflict ensued. The main body of the
strikers was broken up, but groups of
struggling men could be seen in the s!de
streets leading from the main thorough
fare. Tho battle was long and bitterly con
tested, but finally the civic guards were
victorious. It is known that four of the
miners were killed. Many of the rioters
were wounded as were fourteen of the
guards, three fatally.
Barricades at Antwerp.
At Antwerp the police with drawn
swords attacked the mob and were re
pulsed. Reinforcemeuts were called for
and meantime the mob threw up barricades
and women and children hastened from
the houses with firearms. When another
squadron of police supported by a detach
ment of the civic guard tried half an hour
later to drive back the mob they were met
with volleys from the revolvers and rifles
of the men behind the barricades.
Many of the soldiers were wounded.
More military was summoned and after
two charges carried the barricades. The
strikers retreated, firing.
GREAT STRIKE IN ENGLAND.
All Union Men on the Docks Agree to
London, April IS. The union sailors and
firemen at the London docks handed in a
notice to the employers yesterday in which
it is announced that they are about to cease
work. At a meeting held early yesterday
morning a leader said "40,000 men are ready
to stop work at any general movement,"
and that "we will be able to completely
paralyze the shipping trade. The men
should not 6 work, but prepare to
demonstrate to the employers that they
are thoroughly in earnest." Some of the
seamen and firemen did not stop work
yesterday morning, as they have an agree
ment with their employers to give them
twenty-four hours notice.
Brussels Printers Will Strike.
Brussels, April J8. The Brussels Asso
ciation of Compositors has decided by a
vote of 490 to 3U0 to strike, and the Associ
ation of Printers' Apprentices has unani
mously decided to go out, too. Brussels
consequently will have no newspapers, ex
cept such as are printed by non-union com
positors, Shipowners Resolve to Fight.
London, April 18. At a meeting of ship
owners of London and provincial ports
they resolved to make a united fight
against dictation on the part of union
workingmen, whether the latter should at
tempt to enforce their dictation by a gen
eral 6trike or by strikes in detail. The
speakers at the meeting strongly denounced
the unions for their interference with free
labor and with commerce.
