With All Bands.
ALPEKA. Mich., June 3. The steel
steamer Corsica collided with an unknown
schooner fifteen miles off Thunder Bay
Island in a fog. The schooner was cut
In two and went to the bottom instantly.
Her entire crew were lost. The Corsica
had no time to wait for the rescue of any
survivors who might be floating around
in the mass of wreckage, as her bow was
stove in and the water was pouring in
faster than her pumps would throw it out.
The Corsica was run on the beach in
Thunder Bay just below Ossinlkee. Her
bows are all smashed in for a considerable

VIEWS OF THE BRIGGS CASE.
What Some .Prominent "Liberals" Think
of the Decision.
Washington. June 3. In the absence
of political topics the Briggs casa is the
principal subject of conversation here.even
among politicians. The churchmen are
full of it. Professor Brown, Briggs' faith
ful lieutenant, says the verdict will tend
to spread the doctrines it condemns.' Dr.
Alexander agrees with this and goes fur
ther, saying that the prosecuting commit
tee has done more to disseminate the
views of Protessor Briggs in two years
than he could have done in a lifetime.
"There will be no schism, " said Dr. Her-
rick Johnson of Chicago, "there may be
a few withdrawals. But there will be con
tinued discussion with disquiet and unrest,
and, perhaps, in time the verdict may be
modified. By a large section of the church
it will be disapproved. I do not think it
will discourage scholarly investigation, al
though the world may think so. On the
contrary, the discussion is likely to stimu
late study. As for that declaration upon
the inspiration of the Scriptures, that will
be repudiated by the church. It is formu
lating a new doctrine, which the assembly
has no right to du."

RIOT ON THE CANAL
Furious Strikers Attack Chicago

CUT DOWN IN QUAEEYMEN'S WAGES
Results in Mob Operations and Bloodshed
Five Hen Brutally Beaten and ' a
Pitched Battle Fought in Which the
Rioters Are Victorious and Ieave a
Foreman Fatally Hurt Men In Seven
Canal Camps' Stampeded.
Chicago, June 3. There is a reign of
terror along the route of the drain
age canal between Lemout and Romeo.
Four hundred quarrymen struck for an
Increase of wages, and assembled with
clubs and revolvers, marched from one
ttone quarry to another, gaining additions
lo their ranks and stopping at many of the
saloons on their way until almost crazed
with liquor they taft the quarries and
rushed upon the nearest camp of contrac
tors on the drainage canal line. Camp
after camp was visited and in each the men
were driven from their work and where
they had the temerity to resist were as
saulted by the strikers. Many men were
severely injured and it is thought that one,
James Powderly, will die.
A Sharp Fight at Gilford.
At Gilfords rumors of the trouble had
preceded the march of the rioters. The
foreman had organized a resistance and
the strikers were met by a body of men
hastily armed with such weapons as bars
of iron and pick handles. The sight of an
armed force seemed to enrage the strikers,
who without hesitation made aTcharge.
Though equal in numbers the defenders
of the camp were lacking in courage and
made but little resistance, though a few
clustered around the foreman, James Pow
derly, and with him made a stand against
Left Powderly for Dead.
The little band was overwhelmed by the
numbers arrayed against it and in a mo
ment Powderly was stretched insensible on
the ground, while the men were steadily
beaten back and finally, bruised and bleed
ing, were forced to take refuge in night.
The infuriated rioters swept on, leaving
Powderly apparently dead behind them,
He was subsequently found by his men
and cared for.
FOUR OTHER MEN INJURED.
Seven Camps Visited and All the Men
Others who were seriously injured in
conflicts with the mob at different camps
were Superintendent Burns, of Agnew &
Co's. camp; Foreman Frank McDonald,
of Sniitlf"& Co's. camp; Foreman McCarty,
of Campbell & Co's. camp, and Mr. King,
of the firm of Mason, Hogue & Co. Alto
gether the rioters visited seven camps on
the drainage canal and drove off the men.
The strikers returned to Lemont about
dusk. They took possession of the station
and lined the railroad tracks on either side,
oarefully scrutinizing every one who
alighted from the trains.
Lamont Citizens Terrorized.
The ieople of Lamont are terrorized and
scarcely know what to expect. The devel
opments of to-day are looked for with fear,
the people being apprehensive that the
strikers being encouraged by their actions
will attempt to repeat them. In this event
it is said the contractors will be prepared
for them and bloodshed will surely result.
Caused by a Cut In Wages.
Some days ago the wages of the quarry
men were cut from $1.75 to $1.50 per day.
This immediately caused trouble and a
strike was ordered. The men held meet
ings in the vicinity of Romeo and decided
to force a general strihe of every man in
the district. The cut in wages was attrib
uted to the influx of nieu imported by
drainage canal con tractors, hence the bit
terness against these men.
Grant Locomotive Works Troubled.
Chicago, June 3. A call has been issued
for a meeting of the stockholders of the
Grant Locomotive Works, to devise means
to tide over a temporary financial embar
rassment which confronts the concern.
The trouble is caused partly by the ma
chinists' strike which has tied up a large
amount of unfinished work, and partly by
the stringency in money. The company
has assets largely it excess of its liabili
ties, but would be unable to meet the latter
on demand. The difficulty, it is confi
dently expected, will be bridged over..
Ives Quits at S.OOO Points.
London, June 3. Ives began his "can
nonade" with the balls at the billiard

then broke his "cinch." This, it is proba
ble, was owing to the adverse comments
made on his way of playing. He plays for
cannons, while the English game is lor

and Roberts will begin to night.,

The Tbin That Worries Kx-Ciov. Chase.
Indianapolis, June 3. Ex-Governor
Chase, in speaking of his connection with
the financial schemes of Dwiggins, Star
buck & Co. and Faris and Xave, said: "I
know that I am not guilty of any wrong
doing, but the fact that men have been
made to suffer through my instrumental
ity worries me. I was asked to become
president of the Greentown bank, but de
clined. The vice presidency was then of
fered to me, and after consulting with
Mr. Roberts I consented to take the posi
tion. I haven't any doubt but that people
at Greentown were induced to become de
positors in the bank because my name was
connected with it and that is what wor
ries me. I never received any money from
any of the banks that I assisted in estab
lishing. In case the banks established bad
flourished I was to have a one-tenth inter
est in them."
