Both the drainage men who firid on the

that two and possibl v t hree men fell into

injured are John Kliurer. a section liand

Coventor Altgeld was on tlie ground as
early as he could get there, lleprix-ecded to
gather evidence from everybody he could
get to talk, but he ltcgati with the strikers
and their sympathizers, for one re;uson
that thecontractors failed toresporid to his
numinous to go to lament and testify. He
also talked to the section men on the Santa
Fe who saw the battle, going down the line
on a hand-cur. himself helping to man the
brakes. The governor then issued a state
ment in which he declared that according
to hi-information there hud been no vio
lence for a week and. and that the shoot
ing was entirely wanton and unprovoked.
He also tired a broadside into the sheriffs
of Will and Cook counties, who he said
had no deputies on the ground until alter
the mischief hadU-en done.
Modilies His Viewo Somewhat.
He further said that the sheriffs had
tried to shift the resinmsibiUty of main
taining order from their own shoulders to
those of the governor, letter the governor
heard the other side of the story, the con
tractors taking hand in the talk. They
told him that no demands had tx-eri made
upon them for an increase of wages, and
that their men were anxious to work if
pjoteeted from violeiHt on the part of tlie
striking quarrymen. . Their story of Fri
day's riot was greatly at variance with the
reports given him by the strikers, and the
governor was forced to modify his views
somewhat as to the responsibility for the
bloodshed. The hearing took place at

JSejrro Canal Laborers Pursued by Molin
At Turnout the only exciting incidents
since Friday s tragedy were two assaults
by htrikers upon negro canal laliorers. Two
of these walked down the railway track
from Itomeo. A gang of strikers was
lounging around the station, and when
they spied the negroes a cry of "Kill them:
Kill them!" was raised. The negroes took
flight, and were pursued by the mob for
nearly a mile. Stones and elu)s were
hurled at the flying blacks, fait they es
caped without serious injury, and finally
found refuge in a militia camp.
Later in the afternoon three more
negroes ventured into town, but no sooner
were they seen than they were pursued
anil captured by a mob. Before any harm
could lie done them, however, they were
rescued by meml:rs of the local jiolice
force, and amis being found on them they

Washington, Junetl2. First Assistant
Postmaster General Jones has written to
Postmaster Donham, of Terre Haute, in
reply to the latter's certification to the de
lart ment of several appointment he had
made in the postomce there, this being the
case where Donham attempted to get pos
session of the office In-fore it passed into
the classified service in order to control
the appointments, but failed, as the re
quired examination was completed before
the office was turned over to him. He
however, changed the force and reported
his action to the department.
Mr. Jones tells the postmaster that he
Iteiieves he acted in good faith and with no
intention to arrogantly override the laws.
"Your zeal and activity," he continues "in
getting control of the office is no doulrt
commended by many of your jiolitical
friends, but under all the circumstances

Washington, June 12. It is generally
accepted us a fact that the government and
war department are resiKinsible for the
disaster at thw Ford theatre building. The
cont raet for the work in the cellar was
made with all necessary precautions and
the plans drawn with the same cure. The
men employed to do tlie work were experts
in that line and so far everything was cor
rect. But it was in the inspection that
the war department seems to have been
derelict. Those who did this work were
Colonel Alnsworth, who is an effi
cient man in his place that of surgeon
and head of the record and jicnsion di
vision, but never made any pretension to
knowledge of engineering; Captain Thorpe,
who is head of tlie supply branch, but who
has never had experience as an engineer,
and Mr. Sasse, engineer of the Imilding,
who, while a good mechanical engineer is
not up in such work as he was put at.
Hlame It ou the House.
Nearly every man who talks altout the
disaster blames it on the house, and thus is
the same as putting it on tlie shouklers of
Holman with his "I obiect." Many openly
charge him with niggardliness not true
economy and declare him primarily the
cause of the disaster. Senator Coekrell
savs he h;is made repeated efforts to re
build the old theatre or provide other
quarters for the clerks. The senate has
always assented and the house luis always
refused to concur. Othersdeclare that the
people of the United States are to blame;
They demand "economy" and seem to
think that the country should Ik-nm as
cheaply now jus fifty years ago.
A Couple More t'nsafe Huiiiiiiuis.
Talk is always cheap, and just now there
is a good deal of if going on with varying
degrees of wisdom devcloied in the utter
ances. There seems to be wisdom in the
strictures ngainst the Imilding used by the
department of justice; the winder building
occupied by the war department and the
Busch building, an annex of the post office.
None of these was built for the purpose
it is used for now. But even the patent
office building comes in for condemnation.
There are cracks in the walls and Secretary
Noble appealed in vain two years ago for
money to remedy the trouble.
The Correct List of I loud.
An exactly correct list of dead has at last

Condition of the Injured All the VirHma
Poor Men The Bnrlals.
Lewis W. Boody, of New York, and M.
M. Jarvis, of Michigan, were rejiorted
dead, but both are alive and unhurt. The
condition of the injured, except as to t-wo
of them, is encouraging in fact tlicy are
in a fair way to recover. Tlie two are J.
P. McCornack. of Wisconsin, and Frank
Metcalf. of Massachuseets. McCornack
will probably die and Metcalf has de
veloped pneumonia, and tlie result is In
doubt. F. W. Test, of Illinois, is getting
well rapidly. A. S. Ames, of Iowa, is im
proving, but is still in a serious condition.
J. B. Dowd. of Indiana, will recover.
Nearly all the dead have either been bur
ied or forwarded to their homes. The cap
ital city was in funeral garb all day. and
long lines of mourners were to lie s-cn in
every direction following the dead to their
last rest itig pkice. Every one knew what
the sad procession meant, and the sympa
thy of all was extended, alln-it unexpressed
in many cases, to the sorrowing, stricken
ones. Inquiry confirmed the statement
that none of the victims were men of prop
erty. Most of them lived on their salaries,
which furnished a means of livelihood, but
left little for a day like this. Most of them
were married, anil some had large families
who are now left, if not entirely dependent
upon friends and relatives, at least lacking
in funds for immediate use.
Tin- remains of ,T. Boyd .Tones were sent
to Evansville, Wis., where a widow and
three children await them. J. B.Gage was
buried among his comrudes at Arlington
by Kit Carson Post G. A. R. George M.
Arnold, a colored victim, was well known
in government employ and two colored
military companies followed his remains
to the grave. Otto F. W. Maeiler was
buried at Arlington. J)r. Burrows Nelson
at Olivet, and Frank M. Williams, of
Middlctown. Wis., in the Congressional
cemetory. The Iudejiendcnt Order of
Mechanics buried J. R. Fagan and Garfield
post interred at Arlington the body of J.
Much of the talk upon the disaster is
now of relief measures and the circulation
of subscription papers in t he departments
and the Washington newspapers in their
efforts to gather funds for the relief of
the victims and their families are
meeting with success to a degree that does
credit to the benevolence of the citizens.
