OISA1 FFEC ION SPREAiii . Renewed Rioting in Berlin Last Night and the Spirit of Unrest Growing. The Better Class of Workingmen Now Take Part in the Disorders. Grave Apprehension as to the Events of Sunday-Soldiers Under Arms Bread Riots Elsewhere LCovyright. 1892, Now York Assoolated Prose.l BanRLT, Feb. 27.-Despite the qlnjet as pects of the streets this morning and after noon, apprehensions were felt for the even ing. The situation seemed to be under ab solute control of the police until nightfall, when rowdyism renewed its tussle with the authorities. The first encounter occurred at Heckesche market. A noisy mob as sembled, consisting of young workingmen, probably excited with beer, and largely, also, of the worst rowdy element in Ber lin. The patrols got so blocked in the masses of the crowd that they sent for re inforcements. Then they charged the crofvd with sabers drawn, driving them toward None Friederich strasse and Orain enburger strasse. Several thousand riot ers, thus split up by police tactics, reassem bled later on the streets in the northern quarter. liosenthal strasse became the next focus for rioting. The situation at nine o'clock appeared critical. A great mass of peopie assembled in groups listen ing to socialist speakers, who violently de nounced the government, police and every thing comprising the existing order of things. The police made another charge and repeated it again and again, but the crowd, after giving way a little at each charge, reclosed its ranks and fought the police with desperate energy, using as weapons sticks, stones, heavy billets of wood and anything they could lay their hands upon. When the police found the tide of battle turning against them they did not hesitate to use the edge of their sabres. A large number of rioters were badly hurt and taken to surgeries in the vicinity, where their injuries were attended to. By 10:30 the Rosenthal melee was over and a large num ber of rioters in the police stations. As on Thursday, some of the rioters took advan tage of the uproar to smash shop windows and seize upon goods displayed in them, or anything else that came within their reach. The feature of to-night's rows has been the large number of workingmen mixed up with the mob. Hitherto the greater part of the crowds consisted of men never known to work, professional agitators and the dregs of humanity. To-night, , however, there were many genuine workingmen in 'the crowds. '!his cn h. attrihntat i t. t.h. ,the crowdo. Thi. can be attributed to the fact that to-day was pay-day. The adviei given the socialists by their organ, the Vorwaerts, does not seem to have had mudt effect. The paper appealed to them to ael in an orderly manner and keep away from the shope. All the police available were concen trated to-night in the northeast district of the city. After the fight in Rosenthal strasse, serious collisions occurred in Blunnes and Frankfurter strasse. As the rioting increased the authorities issued an order calling upon the people to remain indoors. The order, however, did not suffice to keep the curious off the street and many spectators suffered with mem bere of the mob. At a late hour the cen tral authorities were warned that disolders were spreading to Tegal, an outlying su burb. Mounted gendarmes were also called out in another district. To-night closea with the worst p:ospects for to-morrow. The authorities believing a spread of the rioting likely, have taken extended precau tions to meet all trouble, All troops are ordered confined to the barracks and Sun day is anxiously awaited. It is believed that should I serious disturbance occur to morrow, it will be necessary to call on the military for aid. The origin of the riots is found in an appeal of unemployed masons to Burgo master Farckenbock for employment in municipal work. The under burgomaster declared that the municipal authorities could not give them work anc referred them to the superintendent of public works. The latter promised to use his in fluence with the contractors. It was doubted that this would be of much assist ance to the men, the families of many of whom were on the verge of starvation. The meeting at flriedrichshiin followed. One of the delegates told the men there was no immediate chance of thiemanicipalauthori ties furnishing them with work. The meet inm adopted a esolution declaring that in view of the prevailing distress the state authorities might begin the erection of new buildings and thus furnish work for the destitute. There is no truth in the report that extreme socialist views were expressed and that the crowd demanded that the government furnish there with work or bread. Only a respectful suggestion was made that the condition of affairs required extraoldinarv erxeltious on the part of the authorities to alleviate distress. The truth of the whole matter is that workingmon at first had nothing to do with the demonstration. It was the lower strata stragglers on the edges of the meeting that began the demonstration. AP the excite ment growing out of the conflicts with the police expanded the ferment among the better oJass of workingmen has grown, The emperor's advice to thes malcontents to emigrate has added fuel to the flames and the end now cannot be told, thiough it is certain if the soldiery is called upon much bloodshed will follow. Berlin is not alone in her trouble. Dis tress is prevalent in every populous center of Germany, and the cry for bread is clam orous. During the week bread riots oc curred in D)antzio and Brunswick. Meet ings of suffering poor were held in Ham burg and Breslau. In scores of places strikes that occurred during the past few monthe, always resulting in the defeat of the men and the exhaustion of benefit funds, have nassisted employers to reduce work, causing further trouble for the men. Government members of the reichstag accuse the socialists of playing a double game, ostensibly restraining, but secretly inciting workingmen to violence. Oni tihe other hand, the socialists charge iolico agents with fomenting riots in order to on able the government to execute the grand coup of wholesale repression. Herr W\Vemuth, German imperial com muissionor of tIle Obicago (Colulnbian ex cosition, worries over tie luck of space for the German department. lie was promised noie and accepted offers from intending exhibitors sulfficent to fill all tie space offered. On receiving the plans he filnds hat nearly one-third of the available aproe is absorbed by promnenades and other binge. Ilt has written protesting against this. Herr Krupp, the great gun mann urel, notified Herr Wermuth that he iu ,ends to make an imtortanut exhibit that will involve the expenditure of fl0,000 narks. Col. Murphy has started to St. Peters eurg under orders from Socretary Rusk to attred to the distribution of food supplies lent from the United States to help the amine sufferers. IFREEC COINAGE, FRIEL~ SILVER, DieClusserl at the Annual DI)lner of the ChEleago ]Cankers. OCucAno, Feb. 27.-A notable affair to night was the annual dinner of the Chicago Bankers' club, a feature of which was ani address in advocacy of the free coinage of silver, by President William P. St. John, of the Mercantile National bank of Now York. Free coinage and free silver, he said. are common but misleading terms for the proposal to restore the coinage system of the United States founded nuder Washington, advised by Hamilton, recommended by Jefferson and ratified by Jackson; that the avetem of equally unrestricted coinage of gold and silver, which it is now proposed to reinstate, was maintained continuously for 80 years, until its overthrow unnoticeably in 1873, and yet no objections are now too paradoxical to hail from one and the same antagonist of silver coinage. President St. John analyzed the monetary condi tions of continental Europe as showing that there is a need of silver- amid the world's insufficiency of gold. If Europe should desire to discard her silver he said the statis tics of the world's consumption of silver at present, including our treasury adoption, would appear to be in excess of the world's present production of silver. This in spite of the fluctuations of the price, which reduced India's absorption by over $17,000,000 worth of silver dur ing nine months. He argued that the proposed fixity of price for silver at our mints would so enlarge India's absorption as to assure the permanency of our law successfully. In conclusion, he said the proposed re-opening of mints to gold and silver alike, besides main taining the party of the bullion value of our value will provide for the automatic issue of money limited hy the mine product of hard labor. The sole alternative suggested is the inestimably capricious issue of limitless legal tender notes. 311LITAlRY INDIAN AGENTS. The House Takes Action on an Important Line or Policy. WASINGOTON, Feb. 27.-The house of rep resentatives to-day, in considering the In dian appropriation bill, authorized an ino vation which, if concurred in by the senate, will be of great interest to Indian agents end officers of the regular army. An amendment proposed by Bowers (Cal.) was adopted providing that the president may detail officers of the army tO act as Indian agents whenever vacancies occur. On mo lion of Holman it was amended to pro vide that such officers, while acting as In dian agents, be under the orders and direc tions of the secretary of the interior. In advocating his amendment Bowers said that sooner or later the people would com pel the adoption of the principle involved therein. Army officers are second to no people on earth in the matter of integrity and honor. If they performed the duties of Indian agents the Indians would be fairly dealt with and there would be no more wars. When the present Indian agents get into trouble army officers are called on to quell the disturbance. Hol man's amendment mentioned above was adopted. Simpson (Kan.) favored Bowers' amend- ment, and said it was the first time he had heard any excuse for the existence of the army in this country. Here was a proposi tion to put the army to some useful em ployment and take political strikers out of oflfice. Upon a standing vote the committee agreed to Bowers' amendment as amended, eighty-three to forty. Pickler (S. D.) raised the point of no qunorum. Wilson (Wash.) said evidently acre was a quorum. The chair (Bynum) replied that there was evidently a quorum present, but the chair could not vote them. Gentlemen must do their own voting. [Ap plause on the democratic side.] On a vote by members the amendment was adopted, 123 to forty-three. HINDERING PUBLIC BUSINESS. Dingley, a Republican frosm Maine, in a Senile Roll. WAsHrNTONs. Feb. 37.-In the hnnTnnTina. WAsenmOTON, Feb. 27.-in the house Ding. ley, (Me.), presented for reference a pre amble and resolution reciting that the democratic party, in order to avoid raising a direct issue on the principles which separate the republican .and democratic parties in the approaching presidential election, was trying to make the people be lieve that there is a question at issue be tween the two parties as to whether the appropriations and expenditures of the government shall be economical. The re solution then goes on to say that the so ealled leaders of the democratic party, in pursuance of this plan and in support of their unfounded charges of wicked extra vagarince against a republican congress, and their equally unfounded claims of sun:erior honesty and economy for the present democratic congress bird it noces sary to defer all appropriations until the second session of the present congress after the presidential election, in or der that they may be able to point, during the campaign, to an apparent reduction of appropriations in support of their charges and claims. IResolved, That in order to further this plan of campaign, it is inexuedient to pro vide for the constnuction of any of the numerous public buildings which congress intends to authorize until the second ses sion, after the presidential election shall have been decided and the necessity for which, as democratic muembers seemn to think, exists for pressing the false issue of economy in lieu of the real issues rnd prin ciples which shali divide parties have passed away. Silver Spiecial Order. WASnINrTOT, Feb. 27.-As a result of in formal talk between the three democratic members of the committee on rules, Crisp, Catchings and McMillin. the determina tion was reached to bring in it special order on the silver question. It was determined to make the Bland hill it special order for March 21 or 22, though this date may be changed. The purpose is to give the bill four days for consideration in the house. Within this time it is to be debated and brought to a voto. If necessary, because of filibustering, a iule will be brought in to bring the matter to a vote. It is the pur pose of the anti-silver men to fight the spe cial order of the rules columittee at the very outset and endeavor to defeat it. A large nullber of lumembers of congiress con ferred with the speaker during lie day and all gave opinions on the silver question. Irder tllhe MlcKinley Iaw.

FIlTEEN TONS OF ROCK, Under This Enormous Weight the Lives of Two Miners Are Crushed Out. Another Poor Fellow Suffocated From an Aoaident of a Very Similar Nature. Three Lives Lont in One Day in the Ana conda-The Company Exoner ated From lilamne. BoTrx, Feb. 27.--Speocial. I--Three men were killed in the mines of the Anaconda company here this afternoon. On the 300 foot level of the High Ore mine, at about two o'clock, fifteen tons of earth and rock fgll from the hanging wall. At the time of the acoident Thomas Carroll, C. Frank and E. Doyle were stoping together on the 300-foot level in what is known among the miners as the Belle mine, which is in re ality a part of the High Ore and reached by the same shaft. The place was one whico has always been considered safe. Withoul a second's warning, about fifteen tons oj rook and earth tore loose from the over hanging wall'and buried the poor fellows beneath its ponderous weight, crushing their lives out almost instantly. One cry. which reached the innermost recesses of the levels, alarmed the other men who were working near, and who rushed to the spot, but all that they could do was to re move the weight of ore ani1 earth from the bodies and carefully convey them to the surface. They were then carried into the engine room. A physician was summoned as soon as possible, and an examination re vealed the fact that Carroll's neck had been broken, while Doyle had received fractures of the skull, either one of whict would have been sufficient to cause alinosl instantaneous death. Carroll came to Butteabout a month ago from Lake Sun perioef, nd had no relations nor intimate iriends living here so far as known. He was about 30 years of age. Doyle had al ways lived here and numbered friends b3 the hundred. He lived with his widowed mother. Jeffrey Kane was the victim of the casu alty at the St. Lawrence. The accident oc ourred in the 800-foot level, west. at about 2:30 o'clock p. m. Kane had been at work during the day on the third floor' of the level, cleaning up some ore that had broken through the floor above, while two of the other members of the set, Thos. Lannon and Mjke Sullivan, were blasting upon the fifth floor. Pete Curran, the fourth man, ,was engaged in passing the timbers at the time oi the accident. At 11 o'clock Lan non awn ullivan had made a blast; at two o'clock the shift boss came along and told them to timber the place up immediately. One of the men started off for some tim frera, but he had been gone only a few min utes when a big lump of rock and ore passed through the fifth and fourth floors, crushing Kane against the wall and killing him almost instantly. When found he was in a partly upright position, with his right arm raised as though to shield himself from the awful weight which no power could have checked. His right arm was broken at the wrist, but he sustained no other apparent injuries and probably died from suffocation. Kane was 25 years of age and unmarried. The coroner's inquest re lieved the company from blame in the matter. BUTTE JAIL BREAKERS. They Are Discovered Before the Bars Were All Cut. BUTTE, Feb. 27.-i-Special.]--Another well planned attempt to break out of the county jail has been mode by the prisoners in the cells opening into the lower east corner. The first intimation Sheriff Lloyd had of the contemplated break came from a pris oner in the jail the day before yesterday, who selt word that a number of bars had again been sawed off in the coridor. The sheriff decided to give the men an oppor turnity to continue their sawing with the hope of discovering the men who did the work, Yesterday afternoon the prisoner who gave the first information sent the sheriff a note running as follows: "The intention is to go through the elevator to night, but whether the new prisoner put in there to-day will make any difference, I cannot find out." Mr. Lloyd's first im pulse was to allow the men to break out and shoot them in their tracks, and his deputies were of the same mind, but seo ond thought probably saved the expense of seoverail funoerals. It was, however, decided to let the prisoners make the attempt, and to assist them an extra supper was sent up through the elevator for a late prisoner anmd to give the jailer an excuso for "acciden tally" leavino the elevator unloclked. Evorylhing went well so far. but the shor ilfls watched and waited until after miid night and no attempt was made. 'Tlhe iheriffs climbed up to mooet the prisoners. who theroupon gave theci the laugh and claimed they had boon onto them all night. The bars were found sawed so that a wrench would break them. Sparks and Cosgrove, two of the former escaped pris oners, were also concerned in this attempt. llr ssoula Ionrd of Trade. Mr2sour A, Feb. 27.-[Special.]-An en thnsiastio meeting of the board of tranl was held in the office of Walter M. Bick ford. Various committees reported.

I-Charhie Actave, a 'Pen d'Oreille Indian, was to-day brought in from the reservation charged with breaking the look of a switch about two weeks ago and throwing a traln from the track. The crime was committed a short distance east of l'aradise, Mont. A number of men were brought up as wit nesses, accompanied by Agent Itonan. The arrest was made through the efforts of Detective Noble, sent out by the Northern Paciflc from St. Paul. The Indian did not seem to realize the enormity of the crime. The Knlfe Raised. MIrsonre, Feb. 27.--Special.1-About 10 o'clock this evening the denizens of the Bad bands were startled by cries of mur der issuing from one of the houses. Mrs. Gleim, who keers the Star lodging house, arrived there in time to grasp the knife in the hands of Henry tBlanchen as he was choking a French woman and and about to cut her throat. Mrs. Gleim's hand was badly cut, but she retained the knife, and others coming Blanchen escaped, but wnas captured an hour afterward in a room back of the (Ofice saloon. The house where the murder was attempted proved to he nearly as full of tray doors and secret exits as the stage of a theater. SOME PECULIAR. FACTS. Revealed Since the Adjournment of the Idualstral (Confrerence. ST. Lours, Feb. 27--Now that the indus trial conference is over some peculiar facts are being revealed. It is said that the en tire affair, from the issuing of the call by the Ocaln convention to the present day, was planned and executed by J. hI. Weaver, ignatius Donnelly, 1Herman K. Tauber neck, G. F. Wash~burne, J. If. Davis, C(. C. Post, of Georgai, and J. L. Norton, of Chicago. It becance evident that the southern element was strongly opposed to independent political action, and that the leaders in this line were I)r. Macune and Ben Terrill, of Texas, and Livingston, of Georgia. Those in favor of such action saw that something de cided had to be done, and quickly. After the convention was called to meet at St. Louis, so it would be near Kan eas and Nebraska, two strong alliance and third party states, matters were so shaping themselves that it was becoming necessary to destroy the influence of the southern leaders opposed to third party action. Here the Washburne-Taubeneck party showed its finesse with the aid of Post, of Georgia, and J. H. Davis, of Texas. The alliance men of those two states were so w6rked upon as to come to the support of the third party. The anti-third party feel ing having thus been practically stamped out, steerers came to St. Louis and began their work here to control the convention. With what success they met the result of the convention shows. AMUSEMENTS. The announcement that the celebrated mind-reader, Carl King, and the famous musical artists, the Spanish Trobadours will give two of their unique and highly interesting entertainments in this city next Wednesday and Thursday evenings will, no doubt be hailed with pleasure by all lovers of first-class amusement. The myslery of mind-readin~i is little understood even by the very few who are gifted with the faculty by the ignorant, or those who have never seen its remarkable manifestations. It is often confounded with spiritualism and second sight; but it is a totally different thing. Mr. King, since the death, of Bishop, has been regarded as the foremost mind-reader of the day. Young, vigorous, with a bright mind and a flow of wit and humor, he never fails to interest an and ience. He performs the most difficult feats with ease and rapidity. Blindfolded, lie seems to penetrate his subject like a flash. An attractive feature of the entertainment is the music of the Spanish Troubadours, on the mandolin and guitar. All the gems from well known operas, such as "Sermira mnide," "Favorite," etc., as well as such popular airs as "Mary Green," "Biogie Man," and others are given by them with equal facility. Tuesday Evenings at Ming's. The dramatic entertainment at Ming's opera house, to be given for the benefit of St. Peter's hospital, will be one of the most enjoyable attractions seen at the opera St. Peter's hospital, will be one of the most enjoyable attractions seen at the onera house this season. As an elocutionist, Mrs. F. H. Carter has few superiors, and the selections for which she is on the pro gralnme for Tuesday evening are such as will give her full opportunity to display her powers. 'lhe second part of the pro gramme, in which Mrs. Carter will be as sisted by her class in physical culture, will be the first entertainment of the kind given in Helena. While the entertainment in itself will be worth thi admission, the ob ject for which it is given should appeal to the generosity of every one. 'lheo urice of tickets is $1, a.d seats may be reserved at Pope & O'Connor's to-morrow morning without extra charge. The T. M1. C. A. ('ourse. Major G. W. Baird will lecture next Tuesday evening, in the Y. M. C. A. hall, his subject being "Indian Campaigning in Montana with Gen. Miles." The sub ject is one with which Major Baird is en tirely familiar, and the major will tell the story in such a way that it cannot help but be inte.esting. Old-timers and new-tinmers will alike find it interesting, and those is no doubt the major will have no overflowing house. lilzel Kirke. The Catholic Literary society will pro duoo this splendid emotional play Monday oveuine. The sum realized from the sale of seats will be devoted largely to titting up the club rooms of the society. No oir ganization is deserving ilore from the pub lic than this, as all their work heretofore has been for charity. MONTANA MINE [jRAL ENl 111lllT.
