First Reports of the Trouble.
Nashville, Tenn.. April 20. Reports of

military companies under arms and se
cured a special trnin -which is kept in readi
ness to leave on a moment's notice. Gov
ernor Turner is at 'Winchester at his home.
The trouble at the mines grew out of the
placing of a new warden and new guards
at Tracey City prison.
Authorities on the Qnl Vive.
The first information of the threatened
outbreak came in a telegram to X. Bax
ter, president of the Tennessee coal, iron
and railway company, the lessees of the
state'eonvtets, to the effect that the miners

they were well armed and have 2,000
rounds of ammunition. A telegram says

very demonstrative. Adjutant General
Fite says there will be no temporizing as
was witnessed last year.
DECIDES AGAINST THE FAIR.
The Attorney General on That Congress
"Washington, April 20. In reply to the
questions submitted to Secretary Carlisle
some weeks asb by Edwin Walker, of Chi
cago, concerning the status of tbe World's
fair appropriation, under the act of the
last session of congress. Attorney General
Olney has rendered an opinion in which he
holds that the expenses of the committee
of awards must be paid out of that appro
priation and not out of tbe $2,500,000 pro
vided by the act of Aug. 5, 1492, as some of
the friends of the fair have contended.
An amount tqual to this appropriation.
1570,880, he sys, may be retained in the
treasury of the United States as security
under the conditions imposed by congress
in its act of March 8 last. lie contends
that one congress may impose conditions
upon legislation enacted by its predecessor
if it choosey just as it may repeal or amend
a law. " Hence ' the contention that the
Fifty-second congress had no right to at
tach conditions to the use of money appro
priated by the Fifty-first congress or to
modify the terms of an agreement is erro

SUING FOfc MORE THAN A MILLION
A. Kew Development of the Recent Hicks
Toledo, April 20. That the recent de
cisions of Judges Ricks and Taft in the
Ann Arbor strike matter do not apply to
railroads alone is evidenced by the filing
in the United States court here of a sensa
tional suit against the members of the
Toledo produce exchange by the Union
Elevator company, which claims to have
suffered heavy damages in the past four
years by reason of a boycott or alleged
discrimination on the part of the defend
This consisted in publicly announcing
on the floors of the exchange that no grain
would be received from the Union com
pany's elevator. A. L. Backus, president
of the company, states that while the p res
ent action is simply to secure an injunction
restraining the defendants from refusing
to accept his gram and from inserting any
clause in their contracts excepting grain
delivered by the Union elevators and from
inducing others not to handle such grain.
that will not end it.
Because if the injunction is crranted he
will commence suit under the rulings
of Judge Kicks and the provisions of tbe
bherman anti-trust law to recover tbe
amount lost by him in the past four years.
The plaintiff estimates his yearly loss at
$100,000, and as the Sherman law provides
that in a case of unjust discrimination the
guilty parties shall pay three times the
amount of the damages sustained there
will be due the Union Elevator company
the sum of ft, 200,000.
RECIPROCITY NOT IN FAVOR.
Tbe Administration Inclined to Doubt Its
Washington, April 20. The president
and his secretaries of state and of the
treasury it is said do not look with favor
upon the reciprocity treaties made by the
last administration and statistics are be
ing collected of their effect upon trade and
business of the United States. These in
vestigations it is said have almost led to a
conclusion to terminate the arrangements
with Brazil, and with Spain in behalf of
Cuba and Porto Kico.
The Cuban treaty.it is thought, may per
haps depend upon concessions being made
to this country. Complaints have been
made that Cuba and Porto Kico are not
carrying out the reciprocity treaties in a
spirit of fairness and that the local offi
cials are violating the terms of the agree
ments. Flour it is said is one of tbe arti
cles as to which this country does not
think it is being fairly treated. The Bra
zilian treaty can only be abrogated after
three months' notice.
GOTHAM GARMENT WORKERS.
They Haul Their Ex-Employers Into Court
For a Lockout.
New Yoke, April 20. The warfare be
tween the United Garment workers and
the Clothing Manufacturers' association
has been carried to the Tombs police court,
wnere the examination of tbe six
manufacturers arrested on a charge of
criminal conspiracy was held before Judge
Ryan. They are jointly charged with con
spiring in preventing the complainents
from working at their chosen calling. The
ease in brief is this: The garment workers
demanded the discharge of a non-union
workman. The employers six firms
met this demand by locking out all the
union workmen, and the latter act is the
conspiracy charged. The absence of one of
the defendants sent the case over to next
SIGNED THE ANTI-SCALPER LAW.
A Measure That Was Opposed by the
Papers and Labor.
St Paul, April 20. Governor Nelson
has signed the anti-scalper bilL The meas
ure had been fought furiously by most of
the state newspapers and by the labor so
cieties on the ground that it was inter
fering with the personal liberty of the
people to purchase their tickets where they
please and at the same time driving men
from a business considered legitimate.
The law requires every one selling rail
way tickets to have a certificate from each
railway company whose tickets are sold,
which certificate must be hung where
everybody can see it. Heavy penalties are
prescribed for violation of the law. The
scalpers will pay no attention to the law.

make it a test case and carry it to the su
Agreed on World's Fair Kates.
Chicago, April 20. With the exception
of tbe Burlington all trans-Missouri and
trans-continental lines have agreed on
World's fair rates. They are tl 00 for the
round trip from California; $70 for the
round trip from Utah and $49 for the
round trio from Colorado. To the Mis
souri from the above common points 20
less is to be charged. One-way rates at
about half the above. The Burlington
wants higher rates all round and can de
feat the agreement by voting no when the
vote is taken. The Denver and Rio Grande
is not in the agreement, and it is doubtful
whether the negotiation Is not loss or time.
Had Fan About Tin Plate.
Washington, April 20. The English
journalists who are making a tour of
America with the World's fair as their i
nieces, called on President Cleveland. It
was suggested facetiously that the mem
bers of tbe party from Cardiff had come
over particularly to see ' some of the tin-
place factories that had been established
through the McKinley bilL "If you find
any or tbem, gentlemen," said Cleveland,
smiling, "1 wish you would let me know.

Sailors' Boat Races at the Na-
I O I
3AN FRANCISCO BLUE JACKETS WIS
And the 'Frisco Visitors Go Wild with
Joy, and Are "Long" on Shekels The
Cruise of the Philadelphia's Catamaran
A Craft That Was a Nautical Joke
An International Love Feast Arrival of
Fort Monroe, Va., April 20. The men
of the San Francisco are wildly rejoicing.
In every race in which their crews rowed
they came off victorious and the enthusi
asm of the San Franciscoans at Fort Mon
roe is of no low degree of hilarity. The
men were given "liberty, " the officers
were exultant and even the little boats
with the monogram S. F. upon their bows
seemed to dance with more than usual
lightness upon the waves. All Americans
are happy because in a contest with the
most athletic fellows of the English and
Russian fleets American boats carried off
The Water Covered with Craft.
The races were rowed in the quiet waters
of Elizabeth river. Boats were so thick
that a man might almost have walked dry
shod from the crowded wharves of Nor
folk on one side to the equally dense
throngs of people in Portsmouth on the
other. There were, of course, the usual
craft that make a regatta scene one of live
ly interest, but in addition to these the
launches and cutters and gigs of the vari
ous war vessels, flying both strange and
familiar colors, gave to the scene a touch
of international interest.
Order in Which the Itaces Were Run.
The first race was six-oared gigs, and
"Frisco was first, Philadelphia second and
Blake third; second race, twelve-oared
cutters, 'Frisco again first, Chicago second
and Atlanta third; third race, six-oared
whaleboata, 'Frisco first, Partridge second.
and Atlanta third; fourth race, four-oared
dingies, 'Frisco first, Baltimore second.
Chicago third. Although the money act
ually paid in prizes was not large, the
highest purse only being $50 to the first,
$30 to the second boat, a considerable
Bum of money changed hands, and San
Franciscoans got it all. They also have
all got sore throats, for they "lifted the
roof" when their ship's boats came in
ahead each race.
Was a Nautical Nonsuch.
A touch of humor was given to the scene
by the way in which the catamaran crew
of the Philadelphia appeared. A cata
maran is an ungainly thing, almost square
with high sides and is used to carry off per
sons from a sinking ship. This particular
catamaran contained as grotesque a crew
as ever walked a deck. There were seven
man-of-war's men aboard. One was a
dizzy blonde with a wig red enough to
light a pipe, and a pea green diess. An
other masqueraded as Uncle Sam, another
was a typical bumboat woman and all the
rest were as outre as the most rag-tag and
bob-tail attire could make them.
A Burlesque on the Flagship.
The boat was fitted up as a travesty of
their own ship. A barrel served as a boiler
and from a stove dense clouds of smoke
arose. The solitary mast was rigged with
single yard and from the bitter as well
as from the mast itself a string of wash
clothes floated gaily as signals. A slush
bucket did duty as a speed ball which all
ships display when in motion and was
run high in the air whenever the fancifully-dressed
crew began to work industrious
ly with the shovels which they used for
iars. Across tne stern trie name 01 tne
tunny little thing was painted. It was
timply the word "Soup."
Jolly Tars Are Fraternal.
The French flagship Arethuse has ar
rived and been given the regulation sa
lutes after she had opened the bombard
ment by saluting the American ensign.
The way the sailors fraternize is quite in
teresting. With men from six nationali
ses it is somewhat remarkable that there
save been no disturbances, but all the men
teem to be on their good behavior. There
!ias been no restraint on liberty and the
privileges have not been abused. The
British warship Partridge has slipped away
for Nassau, where it is said there is a diffi-
:ulty between the neeroes and whites
which she will endeavor to settle.
