MILL WORKERS AT PATERSON, N.
J., BREAK INTO TWO OF
THE PLANTS.
MOB DAMAGES THE GOODS
Manager of One of the Mills Hit on*
the Head While Defending the Prop-
erty and Is in a Critical Condition*.
Proprietor of the Other Thrown Into
a Silk Vat and Severely Burned by
the Acids. i
Paterson, N. J., April 23.A strike
riot took place in the Rjverside sec
tion of Paterson. The police reserves
were called out. Hundreds of dyers'
helpers in the Auger & Simon works
and the Weidmann dyeing works went
out during the day. The men have
been receiving $9 a week and ask $11
Those working by the hour demand
20 cents instead of 16%.
A number of employes in other silk
plants went on strike, bringing the
total number of strikers up to between
1,500 and ^1,600. Violentce began at
once. One band went to the Dexter
& Lambert mills and forced an en
trance into the works, doing much
damage. Charles M. Sterrett, man
ager of the works, was hit on the head
with a club while defending the prop
erty and is now in the hospital un
conscious. The police were called, but
by the time the reserves reached the
scene the mob had disappeared. No
arrests occurred.
Another mob gathered at the Astley
& Bailey mill. Mr. Bailey was thrown
into a vat filled with silk and dye. He
was somewhat burned by the acids.
Vats were overturned and the stock
ruined. Here again the mob melted
away before the police arrived.
The strike is serious owing to the
fact that the silk trade was never bet
ter than it is today. Every loom in the
city is running, all the weavers mak
ing overtime and some are even work
ing Sundays. The strike does not
meet with favor from other branches
of the trade.

St. Paul, April 23.Inasmuch as the
passenger departments of the roads
operating in the state declared at the

given that time to prepare, and a hear
ing was set for June 24.
With the exception of one or two

ing of the gross and passenger earn
ings and expenses.

men, wrecking crew and others have
been investigating the ruins of the

WOOD PARDONS REEVES.
One of the Cuban Postoffice Conspira
tors Set at Liberty.
Havana, April 23.Governor General
Wood has issued an order pardoning
W. H. Reeves, who was recently sen
tenced to 10 years imprisonment and
lo pay a fine of $35,516 for complicity
In the Cuban postal frauds. Reeves
was liberated at once.
General Wood says he pardoned
Reeves because he was a witness for
the state. The order pardoning him
did not come as a surprise, for it has
been generally understood^ ever since
Estes G. Rathbone was first accused
of connection with the postal frauds
that Reeves had been promised im
munity by the military government.
This had been denied, as well as the
fact that the government had been us
ing Reeves as a witness for the state.
The matter was referred to by counsel
for Rathbone in summing up their
client's case. Rathbone's lawyers de
clared that this promise of immunity
had influenced Reeves to make
statements against Rathbone.
WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE.
President, Attorney General and Oth
ers Discuss Crowder's Report
Washington, April 23.There was a
conference at the White House for the
consideration of Colonel Crowder's re

ment of the result of the conference
was made, those present refusing to
discuss the question. It is said the
report of the attorney general giving
his views as to whether the mainte
nance of the camp at Port Chalmette,
etc., is a violation of the neutrality
laws, has not been completed. Some
announcement from the president,
however, is expected very soon. He is
anxious that the matter shall have the
fullest consideration before a decision
is made, as the questions involved are
of far-reaching consequence, not alone
at this time, but as affecting similar
exportations in the future.
BRITISH CAMP TO REMAIN.
President Will Not Molest the Depot
at Chalmette, La.
Washington, April 23.The report
of Colonel Crowder, who investigated
the shipment of horses and mules to
South Africa from the port of Chal
mette, La., was laid before the cabinet
by the president. While the report is
incomplete it developed that the con
clusion was reached by the president
from what he had seen of it ,lhat there
is not sufficient evidence to show past
or present violation of neutrality and
consequently there is no warrant for
intervention. Colonel Crowder will
make some additions to his report dur
ing the afternoon and later will go
over the matter very thoroughly with
the president and the attorney general.
In addition to Colonel Crowder's re
port the cabinet disposed of a number
of departmental matters.

Confederate reunion officially 12 hours
old, it is estimated that there are
125,000 visitors in Dallas. From morn

CHICAGO LIVE SYOCK EXCHANGE
ALLEGES UNJUST DIS-
CRIMINATION.
FORMAL CHARGES FILED
Attention of the Interstate Commerce
Commission Is Called to the Alleged
Unreasonable Tariffs on Live Stock
From the West by Twenty-six Rail-
roads as Compared With Rates on
Live Stock Products.
Chicago, April 23.Formal com
plaint has been ma*de by the Chicago
Live Stock Exchange charging the 26
railroads composing the Western
Trunk Line committee with making
unjust and discriminating rates on live
stock shipped from Iowa, Minnesota,
Missouri and Wisconsin to Chicago.
The document has been filed with
the interstate commerce commission
and is signed by T. W. Tomlinson, sec
retary of the exchange. The commis
sion has sent copies of the complaint
to the traffic officials of the lines inter
ested demanding answers under oath
to the questions asked. The answer
in nearly every case is essentially the
same and denies the allegations.
Summarized, the charges are that
the roads mentioned are making rates
on live stock to Chicago which are un
reasonable and unjust when compared
with the rates published on live stock
products.
These rates, it is claimed, are in
violation of the interstate commerce
act, which prohibits rate discrimina
tion. It is further charged that the
rates complained of operate to the
Disadvantage and Prejudice
of the live stock raisers in the states
named, when transporting from Kan
sas City, South St. Joseph, South Oma
ha, Sioux City, South St. Paul and
other points to Chicago. Lastly, it is
charged that the rates now in force
militate against the Chicago Live
Stock Exchange and against Chicago
as a market for live stock. The prin
cipal contended for by the Live Stock
Exchange, according to traffic offi
cials, would become impossible of car
rying out if applied to the entire coun
try. It is claimed by the exchange
that live stock coming to Chicago
should bear the same rate as the Chi
cago proportion of the through rate
on live stock destined for the seaboard.
For example, the rate on live stock
for Chicago from Missouri river points
is 23% cents. The proportion of the
through rate taken by Chicago roads
on live stock destined from Missouri
river points to the seaboard is 18%
cents. If the rates were made the same
it would mean that all through rates
would have to be combinations of the
local rates, and under such a regime
the seaboard raises would be prohibited
to all the country west of the Missouri
river.
TORNADO IN WISCONSIN.
Blows Down Two Barns and Kills at
Farmer and Six Cattle.
Hebron, Wis., April 23.A tornado
passed over this village at 3 o'clock p.

eating lunch in a schoolhouse and in
stantly killed.

Two and a Half Feet of Snow at
Deadwood,

a half feet of snow has fallen in Dead
wood since Monday noon and is still
falling. A high wind accompanies the
storm and all trains are delayed.

ranges until nearly morning, when it
turned to snow.
The storm is general over the Hills.
The deepest snow is in the higher
ranges.
DISASTROUS FOR CATTLE.
Heavy, Wet Snow Falling Throughout
Nebraska.
Chardon, Neb., April 23.A wet,
heavy snow has been falling for 12
hours and there is now about a foot
of snow on the level. This is the most
disastrous storm for the cattle that has
fallen this winter, as grass has not yet
grown enough for feed on the ranges.
Many of the poorer cattle will diifc
but a small number are of this class,
as the winter has been mild and has
left the most of them in good condi
tion.
NINE INCHES OF SNOW.
Severe Blizzard in Portions of North
Dakota and Minnesota.
Grand Forks, N. D., April 23.A
snow storm 100 miles wide passed
over the southeast corner of the state,
taking in a portion of Northern Minne
sota and reaching 20 miles north of
Grand Forks. The ground is now cov
ered by nine inches of heavy, wet
snow and seeding is off for at least a
week.
Treasury Department Improves Meth
ods of Endorsing Checks.
Washington, April 23.One of the
mtt important decisions made! in
years in the treasury department has
been announced and will be welcomed
by the business men of the country
as abolishing an annoyance that had
persisted in connection with govern
ment business. Heretofore the gov
ernment has insisted, through the sub
treasuries, that all government checks
and warrants not only must be fully
and completely endorsed in the regu
lar way, but also must be accompanied
by a certificate showing the authority
of the endorser to so endorse the
check. This has frequently given rise
to vexatious delay and a sort of red
tape which has annoyed bankers and
business men everywhere. The gov
ernment heretofore has not deemed
ordinary endorsements accepted by
banks as sufficient unless accompa
nied by this certificate of authority
to endorse. By a ruling of the depart
ment sub-treasurers throughout the
country will hereafter pay government
warrants and checks when endorsed,
and endorsement guaranteed by the
banks presenting the same for pay
ment. This reduces the proposition
to one of simple business caution, and
hereafter the government will pay
warrants much as a cautious business
man or banker would pay similarly
endorsed paper.
LARGEST EVER AUTHORIZED.
Two 16,000-TomBattleships Decided on
by House Naval Committee.
Washington, April 23.The house
committee on naval affairs has com
pleted the naval appropriation bill.
The most important item, as to new
ships, was left until the last and was
finally determined upon as follows:
Two battleships of about 16,000 tons
displacement, to cost exclusive of ar
mor and armament, $4,212,000 each
two armored cruisers of about 14,500
tons displacement each, to cost ex
clusive of armor and armament, $4,-
659,000 each two gunboats of 1,000
tons each, to cost $382,000 each.
Provision also is made for building
one of each class of ships on the Pa
cific coast, and that no contractor shall
build more than one battleship, cruiser
or gunboat.
The 16,000-ton battleships will be
the largest ever authorized for the
American navy and among the largest
warships afloat. The armored cruis
ers will also be exceptionally large
for their class, considerably exceeding
the New York and Brooklyn in tonn
age. The amount carried by the bill
is slightly above $76,000,000.
IMPORTANT CONFERENCE.
Republican Senators Discuss Cuban
Reciprocity.
Washington, April 23.The question
of Cuban reciprocity formed the sub
ject of an important preliminary con
ference on the part of a majority of the
Republican senators. The meeting
was called largely as the result of a
general exchange of ideas on the floor
of the senate. In the main the sena
tors invited to participate were those
friendly to reciprocity legislation, but
some of the opposition Republican
members were present.
The result of the meeting may be
summed up as follows: There will be
an early meeting of the senate commit
tee on relations with Cuba to take up
the question on the basis of the house
bill, which is before the committee
the Republican members of the com
mittee will act together in formulating
a substitute for the house bill, and
none of them is to cooperate with the
Democratic members of the commit
tee the bill thus agreed upon by the
Republican members is to be submit
ted to a Republican caucus of the sen
ate and made a party measure.
A FOLK. OLIGARCHY.
Senator Rawlins Discusses Results cf
the Philippine Bill.
Washington, April 23.Formal dis
cussion of the bill temporarily to pro
vide a government for the Philippine
islands was begun in the senate, Mr.
Rawlins of Utah, the leading minority
member of the Philippine committee,
opening the debate. He denounced the
bill as an unwarranted imposition on
the Filipinos, declaring that it would
establish one of the foulest oligar
chies in the history of the world. He
maintained that the Philippine com
mission was given too great power
by the bill and asserted that under its
provisions the islands would be ex
ploited for private gain. While he
was speaking two efforts were made to
maintain a quorum, the second re
sulting in a lively tilt among several
senators, Mr. Scott (W. Va.) intimat
ing that argument could not influence
any senator.
WEST POINT IMPROVEMENTS.
House Passes Military Academy Bill
After Reducing Schedules.
Washington, April 23.The house

claims attached to the omnibus claims
bill by the senate aggregating $1,800,-
000, and on the heels of that action
non-concurred in the whole senate
amendment (the various items having
been ruled to constitute a single
amendment) and sent the bill to confer
ence.
The military academy appropriation
bill was passed after the limit of cost
of the improvements at West Point
had been reduced from $6,500,000 to
$5,500,000 and the amount of the ap
propriation in the bill from $3,000,000
to $2,000,000.

BOCAS DEL TORO TAKEN
Detalis Have Just Been Received of
the Capture of the Town by the
Liberal ForcesGunboat Machias
Fails to Secure the Release of the
United Fruit Company's Steam
Launches.
Washington, April 23.The state de
partment has received information by
cable to the effect that General Uribe
Tjribe, the insurrectionary leader, has
been completely overwhelmed by the
government troops at a place called
Medina, and has been compelled to
beat a retreat to Venezuelan territory.
It is believed in Bogota that the war
is now practically over.

hundred government troops, to rein
force the present garrison at Colon,
have arrived here from Panama.
No further news of conditions at Bo
cas del Toro has reached here. The
German steamer Hercynia, which left
here for Bocas two days ago with gov

not yet returned.
CAPTURE OF BOCAS DEL TORO.
Liberals Take the Town From the
Colombian Troops.
Mobile, Ala., April 23.The surren
der of Bocas del Toro on April 17 has
been reported by cable. The fruit
steamers Hispania and Mount Vernon
bring news of the battle and also of the
unsuccessful effort to secure the re
turn of the American launches seized
by the Liberals.
The excitement the day before in
Bocas was intense, upon receipt of
the report that Liberals were march
ing upon the city in overwhelming
numbers. The American residents
were greatly alarmed and appealed to
the commander of the United States
gunboat Machias for protection. The
women and children were speedily
taken aboard the gunboat, but the men
preferred to remain and look after
their places of business.
At daybreak, the battle began with
the Liberals and for hours it raged
without any signs of weakening. The
smoke could be seen from the deck of
the Mount Vernon and the rattle of
the musketry, even the cries of those
who were wounded were heard. After
that the fire became scattering and the
Conservatives were in retreat. Before
the Mount Vernd 'left the battle was
over and but an bccasional shot was
heard.
Liberals Attacked Uunexpectedly.
An incident that hastened the at
tack on Bocas was the attempt of the
Machias to recover the launches which
the Liberals had taken from the United
Fruit company. The Machias did not
get the launches. The Liberals were
on an island near the lagoon and re
ceived the demand of the Machias with
great courtesy, but set forth that the
Liberal army was in a desperate state,
located on the island and unable to es
cape if the launches were given back.
The Conservatives would pounce upon
them, and not a man would be left
alive. The request was made that the
launches might be returned to the
owner the next morning. It is said
that the commander of the Machias
consented. The Liberals embarked on
two flat boats towed by the launches,
but instead of moving away they de
scended immediately upon Bocas. It
is believed that the demand for the
launches caused the Liberals to at
tack Bocas sooner than was planned.
So far as known, the launches have
not yet been returned.
FIGHTING STILL CONTINUES.
