STATE JOURlSr All, MONDAY EVENING. APRIL 23, 1894.
TWO STATE TIED UP Work in Mines of Pennsylvania and Ohio, Is Almost CorapletelySuspended in Every Quarter. MINERS ARE QUIET. No Disturbances Have Yet Been Made. Colvmbcs, Oaio.April 23.-Chai-man McBride of the United Mine Workers was busy yesterday comparing' press dispatches and newspaper reports of the big strike with information at . hand. His revised estimate shows that more men have struck in the com petitive district and fewer in the outlying- districts than was an ticipated, but the total number of men remains about ' the same as given Sunday 125,tOJ. In Illinois he states there are 24,000 oat of 3.5,000 idle; Indiana 6,000 out of about 8,000, and in West Virginia 2,000 out of 9,000. Conventions are to be held in Illinois aad West Virginia Tuesday next, when efforts will be made to bring all the men into line.- There seems to be no doubt but that the suspension in Ohio and western Pennsylvania is about complete. The organizers are most active in West Virginia and Illi nois. No reports have been received of any disturbances, and none are ex pected, as a friendly feeling1 seems to prevail. QUIET AT HTT8BCRO. A Few Agitators Art Trying to Create Dlssentlon Among th Men. Pittsbcrq, Kan., April 23. Thus far there has been no strike among the miners here. A few agitators have made their appearance, headed by J. M. Lacy, ex-secretary of the local as sembly of the Union, who took such a prominent part in the strike here last year. He is followed by a few of the malcontents of last year's campaign. They, under the direction of T. B. McGregor, are working quietly among the miners, but with little success, however. . A meeting was held at shaft 2, Weir City, yesterday, the result of vjhich was unsatisfactory to the agitators. A meeting was held at Frontenac by the miners to discuss the strike Ques tion, and they decided that as they received no assistance from the na tional organization to win their strike last year, consequently do not feel under obligation to assist the national organization in their strike. They will not go out unless a pressure of some kind should be brought to bear later on. BEV1ER MINERS SUSPEND. Men Resolve to Stand by the General Order to Strike. Macon, Mo., April 23. The Bevier miners all suspended work in accord ance with the order from Columbus, Ohio. A meeting was held there, which was well attended by veteran workers and it was re solved to stand by the order. Vice president of district .No. 14, Thomas K. Jones, left Bevier for Higginsville, Mo., to confer with the general com mittee. .Nothing further will be done until his return. The men demand SO cents per ton for mining with picks, or 60 cents for blasting. Day men de mand a proportionate increase. The present price is 50 cents for pick work, no blasting being allowed. SUFFERIXU IN COLORADO. Great Distress Among the Poor People in the Eastern Part of the State. ' Dejjveb, Col., April 23. The com mittee appointed by the county com missioners to investigate the reports of suffering among the poor settlers in the eastern part of the state has re turned. By reason of the utter fail ure of last year's crops the ranchers have suffered greatly during the win ter because of their inability to secure fuel and other necessaries. A majority of these people are Danes and Rus sians and have gone through the win ter with almost nothing to eat, using roasted wheat for coffee, bare-footed and almost naked. The committee distributed food, clothing and seed among them and will send other sup plies when necessary. This condition of affairs - applies only to a limited section of the country along the Kan sas line. THEIR TROUBLES SETTLED Prince and Princess Coloona Kiss and , Make Up. New York, April 23.

Princess Colonna has reached an am icable understanding with her hus band, and their domestic differences bid fair to be settled to their mutual satisfaction unless some unforseen complication shall arise between now and the princess1 arrival in Paris.

President Cleveland has forwarded the follow ing letter to Hon. Chauney F. Black, president of the National Association of Democratic clubs: Executive Mansion-, Washington; D. C, April 22, 1894. Dear Sir: I have carefully read the communication you lately placed in my hands, setting forth the future purposes and present needs of the National Association of Democratic clubs. The achievements of this organiza tion should be familiar to all who are in favor of the continuation of Demo cratic supremacy, and should enlist the encouragement of those who ap preciate the importance of any effect ire dissemination of political doctrine. Your association has done much by way of educating our people, touching the particular subjects which are rec ognized as belonging to the Demo cratic faith; but it seems to me its best service has been an enforcement and demonstration of the truth that our party is best organized and most powerful when it strives for princi ples instead of spoils, and that it I quickly responds to the stimulus sup- pi icu uy lx euiiabiucuv m Lilt; people a cause. This acknowledgment of true Democracy suggests that the national association of Democratic clubs, and every other Democratic organization, should labor unceasingly and earnest ly to save the party in its time of power and responsibility from the degradation and disgrace of a failure to redeem the pledges upon which our fellow countrymen intrusted us with the control of their goverment. Al) who are charged, on behalf of the Democratic party, with the re demption of these pledges should now be impressively reminded, that as we won our way to victory under the ban ner of tariff reform, so our insistence Upon that principle is the condition of our retention of the people's trust; and that fealty to party organization demands the subordination of our in dividual advantages and wishes, and the putting aside of ignoble jealousies and bickerings, when party principles and party integrity and party exist ence are at stake. I cheerfully inclose a contribution I iu iue x ulcus necessary io carry on me good work or your organization, with a hearty wish for' its continued suc cess:' and usefulness. Yours very truly, Gboveb Cleveland. TRIFLE LYNCHING. Three Men Hanged Prom n Hail way Bridge in Alabama. Birmingham, Ala., April 23. At Tus cumbia at midnight Saturday night Tom Black, John Willis and Tony Johnson, all negroes, were lynched. About a week ago these men were ar rested for the burning of the barns of Claude King. Their arrest was kept very quiet, for-fear of mob violence. Late Saturday night a masked mob of 200 men went to the jail and called the jailer out on a pretext that they had a prisoner. When he came out the mob took him in hand and carried him some distance from the place, where he was compelled to keep quiet. Thev then entered the place forci bly, taking the keps from the jailer's wife, and entering the cells took the three negroes out and led them to the Tennessee river bridge, which is in the corporate limits of the town. Ropes were placed about each of the negroes' necks, and with the end tied to the bridge timbers they were com pelled to jump off. The fall broke their necks, and the bodies, after be ing tilled, with bullets, were left dangling where they hung. 129 KILLED IN GREECE. Three Villages Partially Destroyed and 129 People Are Killed. AtheS8, April 23. The ea.rthquake shocks that began about 7:30 o'clock Friday night continued with more or less frequency until noon ye&terday. In three villages, Maiesina, Proski ca and Martino, all in the province of Locris, 159 persons were killed. The Larymni telegraphs that a heavy shock occurred at Proskina while vesper service was being held in the parish church. The walls of the church fell burying all the worship pers in the ruins. Hardly a person in the church escaped without injury. Thirty were taken out dead. Houses were thrown down in other parts of the village, and the money loss is great. Some of the villagers are practically ruined. At Maiesina houses tottered and fell as though built of cardboard. In this little village 60 persons were killed. In some cases entire families, fathers, mothers and children were taken out of the ruins dead. At Martino thirty-nine persons were killed. Here, as at Proskina, the parish church was the scene of the greatest number of fatalities. In the vicinity of Athens the fatalities were less numerous, but the property dam age is immense. The offices of the Australian-Lloyd and other steamship companies, were partially destroyed. WORK OF A TORNADO. Six Persons Killed in the Texas County Storm. West Plains, Ma, April 23. Late reports from Summerville, the scene of the recent tornado, make more serious the report sent out from here. The town itself was not injured very much, but in the country the damage was great. Mrs. Val Keel and three children, her hired girl and hired man. named Matsinger, were killed. . Five dwellings and many other buildings were blown away, and a large number of people more or less injured, some, it is thought, fatally. The damage to house, crops and fencing amounts to thousands of dol lars. The houses destroyed belonged to al Keel, John McCaskill, Parrott, William Dyer and George Kirkman. Summerville is in a remote region, making it nearly impossible to get news from there quickly, No Strike in the Nevada District. Nkvada, Ma, April 22. Advices from the coal district of this section of country, and adjacent fields in Kansas, are to the effect that coal will con tinue to be mined regardless of the strike ordered by .the United Mine Workers of America - THEY WAfIT JUSTICE Boston Common is Thro'ngred With 35,000 People, To Witness the Start of the Industrial Army. BY A ROARING "YES A Letter to President Cleveland Was Adopted. Boston, Mass., April ' 22. Seldom has Boston Common been the scene of such a vast gathering as that assem bled there yesterday afternoon to wit ness the departure of the Boston dele gation of the unemployed for Wash ington, where they hope to join Cox ey's army and assist in the appeal to congress for "justice." By the time Morrison I. Swift stepped on to the improvised platform there were fully 25,000 persons present, and soon after the meeting got into working order, fully 35,000 were gathered around the band stand. During the meeting Mr. Swift submitted the following letter to be sent to President Cleveland, which was adopted by a "yes" that could easily have been heard a mile away: President Cleveland, Executive Man sion, Washington. Boston, Mass., April 22. At first thought it may seem to the national authorities the simplest way of deal ing with those penniless, unemployed persons, who are pressing their way across the country to the capitol, would be to employ some form of 'strict and stern repression." This is the opinion of the Aamy and Navy Reg-ister, which calls upon you to gather in the regular army to protect yourself, the congress and the na tional buildings against your less for tunate fellow-citizens. The custom is an old one of resort ing to a liberal use of bullets to check the rising desire of starving persona for food and work. No republic can follow this custom and live long. We are sending a delegation to represent the unemployed thousands in iNevv England in the days of calamity. We should be very sorry to have our deputation thrown into prison or slain by the official edict while exercising their constitutional liberty to petition. .The truth is, before tranquility is restored, there will have to be a re adjustment of the conditions of wealth. You may not realize that the case is grave. When have American citizens been treated in this manner before? Is there not wealth enough.? Let us not be children in this matter any longer. Wealth must be better distributed. This is not the time to prate about senate dignity. It is the time for those who make laws to listen to the commands of those who make them law makers. You can en deavor to have the people provided with proper food while in Washing ton. We who remain at home will await your action attentively. Morkison I. Swift. MARCHING ON FREDEBICK. Coxey Cohorts Leave Their Camp at Ha gerstown, Md. Hagerstown, Md., April 23. After a three days' stop in this place, the Coxey cohorts marched on Frederick this morning. Browne last night in speaking of the proposed camp in the arsenal grounds, said he had concluded that the grounds around the foot of the Wash ington monument would be more con venient and appropriate, and an nounced that he would telegraph Col onel Redstone to make a request for the grounds on the secretary of war. Mayor Fleming of Frederick is pre paring a frosty reception for the army. ie has announced that no public meeting would be allowsd unless in a hall, and that there shall be no pa rade on the street. Browne says he would like to see the mayor stop a procession of American citizens with the American flag at its head. The Sunday services in Camp Naz areth were attended by a crowd of 150 persons. Fifty dollars in all were taken in at the gate. Browne doffed his boot and sombrero in honor of his appearance as a minister and put on a suit of store clothes of clerical black. His sermon was on his own ideas of theosophy. In the afternoon another meeting was held at which Browne lectured on finance. The general order for the night stated the start would be made at 10 a. m. and the camp named Dan iel Boone. Coxey in New York. New York, April 23. General Jacob S. Coxey spent yesterday in the city quietly and unobstrusively. Few per sons who met him knew him to be the Coxey who is about to invade Wash ington with his army to demand the issue of non-interest bearing bonds for the building of roads, and the giv-i ing of work to the idle. No repre-' sentatives of labor organizations called to see him. LOST ON THE KOCKS. The Steamer Los Angeles Goes Down and Poor Lives Lost.
