Proscription of Non-Union Men the De
mand The Movement General Through
out Chicago Other 'Windy City Kewi
Kidnaped on the Street Protest Against
the Russian Extradition Treaty Meet
ing of the Clan-na-Gae).
Chicago, April 24. Another misfortune
is in store for the World's fair officials.
Last week it was old Boreas who brought
grief to the managers of the White City.
This week it is a strike of carpenters.
When the carpenters employed at Jackson
park went to work this morning they
found the gates of the exposition grounds
guarded by a cordon of union delegates.
These delegates had strict orders to allow
no union carpenter working for the exposi-
on company or those contractors who
have not signed the agreement of the car
penters' council to enter within the grounds.
The scenes of two weeks ago were re
peated. Struck All Over the City. '
Not only did the union carpenters strike
at the World's fair grounds, but all over
the city. By order of President J. B. Cogs
well all uniou carpenters working for con
tractors who had not signed the agree
ment quit work. This order threw over
4.000 men out of employment to uphold
the union's demand th:it non-uuion labor
shall be proscribed and thereby forced to
join the unions. The strike was resolved
anon at a mass meeting of carpenters held
at Battery D. Fifteen hundred men were
present and the vote to strike was unan
imous. Of the 3,000 carpenters now at
work in Jackson park, it is estimated thjtt
400 to 4S0 men were affected by the walk
out order. This comprises the men work
ing for the exposition company and those
in the employ of , less than half a dozen
contractors, the great majority of con
tractors having complied with the union s
The Carpenters Are Alone.
It is only the carpenters of this city who
make this demand for proscription, and it
is said that this time they will have no help
from the other trades. When they struck
two weeks ago the Building Trades' Coun
cil went in with them and called out every
member of any union at work on the
World's fair. The demand for proscrip
tion of non-union men was made then, but
the fair directory showed that such a de
mand was a repudiation of the agreement
entered into at the commencement of the
work on the fair two years ago. It was de
manded at that time that only union la
bor should, be employed, but The demand
was waived after the directory bad taken
a firm stand against it.
Facta About the Recent Settlement.
When the affair was discussed by the
committee of the Building Trades Council
and the World's fair committee
the carpenters had a representative there,
but he left (it was Cogswell) before the con
clusion was reached. One of the other
members of the building trades
committee said that Cogswell was
taken ill and told the committee that
whatever they acreed upon would be all
right. He denied this as soon as his at
tention was called to it, and now the
claim is made that the settlement was
reached without consulting the carpenters.
The Director General Still Hopeful.
Director General Davis says that the
strike will be a serious matter for the fair,
as the slightest delay at this time could
could not fail to interfere with the plans of
the managers. He had no doubt that the
difficulty would be surmounted, as many
more serious ones bid been. He thought
the course of the union carpenters was en
tirely unwarrantable and indefensible.
The World s fair could not discriminate
against any class of workmen.
DETAILS OF OPENING THE FAIR.
Reception of the President and Other
Chicago, April 24. The World's fair
ceremonies committee has completed the

tlon, and have a similar escort to the Au
ditorium, a salute of seventeen guns being
fired in their honor. After the freedom of
the city has been formally tendered to both
parties the mayor, the omcers of the na
tional commission, and the Chicago direc
tory will pay their respects.

INCIDENT OF LIFE IN CHINA.
Capture of a Band of Pirates by an Old
Trick Buddhist Monks.
San Francisco, April 24. The Belgic
from China brings ah interesting account
of the capture in Chinese waters by a war
junk disguised as a merchantman of a
formidable band of pirates, who for the
past eight or nine months had made them
selves by their forocity ana Diooatnirst-
iness the terror of all junks trading be
tween Ningpo, Taichow and anchow.
Of the fifty-oue pirates on board the buC'
caneering craft only eleven men were cap

in a desperate attempt to repulse the at
tack of the sailors on board the war junk.
who lost twenty-five of their forty fight
ing men on board, including the captain
and the second officer of the war junk.
A curious incident in connection with
the case is the capture or death of thirteen
Buddhist monks, who were found fighting
side by side with the pirates, and proved to
be the most desperate men in the lot. These
monks are very probably the same Dana
that made a raid upon a nunnery near
Tingpai in December last, and carried
away the youngest and prettiest of the
votaries, gagging the ugly ones in a cruel
manner and throwing them under the
great altar, where the poor creatures were
