When the mob was seen outside the works a man was sent out to tell them that the shop would be closed and all the men let out within five minutes, but the rioters would not wait the five minutes. They Jiroke into the shop and turned the steam on. rjeorge Arnold, one of the owners, ran to turn the steam off. He had Just succeeded in doing this when he waa grappled by one of the strik ers.

The man who struck the blow raised the stic^: to hit the prostrate man again, when the stick was wrested from his hand by George Scola. a boss dyer. A number of assistants carried Mr. Arnold out of the shop, while the dyers were Wrecking the place. They broke windows, over turned dye tubs and chemicals, and then marched off with the men they had taken out of the Arnolds shop. THE GRAND JTRY CHARGED. In tiie attensaaa the strikers attended a meet lnp at Bunk'-r Hill to discuss their plans at the «ame time that Jud^e Dixon was charging the *rand jury at the courthouse to investigate the 'riots at once, in order that the lawlessness mlKht ho checked. He said: A number of men. several hundred in fact, .have been marching through the city and the ■suburbs making such demonstrations as to put ■*11 peaceable citizens in fear for their lives and :property. Such conduct is criminal, and the persons who participate in it are guilty of the crime of riot. If you find that this information if substantially true, you should indict all the persons you can find who have taken any part in these demonstrations. The officers of the law 'ought to do all they can to suppress disturb ances of that nature. In addition to riot, there are specific offences charged. These rioters have tone from one mill to another destroying prop erty. For that they are indictable for malicious snischief, and not only the person whose hands destroy the property, but all others who are •with him aiding In the common project. They have also been guilty of the specific offence of assault and battery. A mill owner and several policemen have been injured at the hands of these rioters. You should therefore exert the power the law intrusts you with to bring these persons to justice at once, as it Is the de eire of this court to enforce the law and pre eer\e peace and property in this community. The grand jury retired to its room and imme diately Took tip the strike cases. George Arnold was in attendance, and made a charge against the strikers for the assault upon him. At Bunker Hill the strikers heard reports from The various shop committees appointed to pre sent the demands of the men to the owners. Nearly all the reports were to the effect that each owner would be willing to grant the de mands of the men for increased pay if the others ' -would do so. Only four firms gave decided an swers, and these were in favor of conceding the claims of the strikers. These firms were TCnlpscher & Maas. who employ 350 men; ICeams Brothers, one hundred men; Robert • \,- fle. one hundred men. and the Paierson Dye ing Company, sixty men. Th" question was raised whether the men em ployed by the firms who yielded should be al lowed to return to work to-morrow. After a long and hot discussion it was decided that not *>. man should be allowed to return to work until all the owners had conceded the demands of the strikers. It must be a complete capitulation or the strike should continue. Th. demands of the strikers are that helpers, who form the great body of the strikers, shall receive I'O cents an hour and fifty-five hours shall constitute a week's work; machine men, dynamite day men and box fixers. 22 cents an hour. finishers. 24 cents an hour, no learners to receive less than 20 cents an hour; this schedule to hold for five years. The old prices were: Helpers. IGU cents an hour; machine men. SStV t cents; finishers. 22 cents; learners. H1;H 1 ; cents. The owners al=o held an informal meeting this afternoon and decided that they would not open their shops to-morrow under any circumstances, but that they would give the strikers time to cool down. They also decided that at present they would not yield to the demands of the men. ALO\K. HE DEFEATS THREE. POIJCLM" IN BEATS THREE MEN WHOM HE FOUND IN SHOE STORE INTO CSTOOMKfOOBBaV.

NEW-YORK STATE DAY CELEBRATED AT THE CHARLESTON EXHIBITION Charleston. S. C. April 23.— This was New- York State Day at Charleston Exposition, and it was notable for the large number of New-York ers who came here to participate in the exer cises. Governor Odell. a dozen New-York legis lators, a large number of members of the Mer chants' Association of New-York City and the New- York State Monument Commission, head ed by General Daniel E. Sickles, who was once military governor of the two Carolina*, were among those who took part. Governor McSwee ney. of South Carolina, was unable to attend, owing to the illness of his daughter. The New-York State Building was formally turned over to the exposition by S. C. Mead, president of the New-York Commission, and Governor Odell delivered an address. GOVERNOR ODELLS ADDRESS. The Governor said: New-York is called the Empire State because, in the. language of one of her most eloquent sons, "".-ithin its vast domain of mountain and forest, city and town teeming field and humming valle> and waste seashore, its romance* its resources and its power are blended. From the ocean to Lake Erie is a chain of cities and towns like a girdle of glittering jewels, with their happy homes. bus> workshops, schools and skyward pointing *!>»*•■ From all this opulence and intelligence tne Adi rondacks joyously nod to the Catsklils and Niagara caeselessly thunders to Monta.uk: This la New- York: this is the Empire State:" It is from such a State that I bring you cordial greetings and felicitations. Great as New-Tor* is in it« resources, powerful as it is in its influence. we all recognize that we are dependent upon our sister State? north, oast, south and west of us. and that without their prosperity disaster and ruin would be ours. It is particularly pleasant to bear this commission to the State of South Carolina, bo cause at the foundation of our government New- York and South Carolina marched shoulder to shoulder in the Revolutionary strife, and upon the fields of battle the blood of our forefathers com mingled. In the pride that you have for your Moultrles. your Lincolns. your Rut Indues and your Laurenses we join you, while we cherish the mem ory of our Hamiltons, our Clintons and our Senuy lerr. In th*» recent developments that have been brought " about in the upbuilding of our country and the enjoyment of the priceless gifts which have been left to us by our forefathers, you have united with us and we share with you in the pride, affec tion and love for our common country. Citizenship which has been so dearly bought, sanctified by suf fering and hardships, is a heritage of untold value. of far more worth than the fruits of labor or the Joy of personal success. It is our duty as citizens of the various States of our Union, therefore, to earnestly, patriotically and without prejudice or partisanship, support our gov ernment and show to the people of the world that while we may differ upon the features of govern mental policy, our respect for our flag and our love for our native land are greater than partisanship and broader than State lines. NEW-YORKER IS PRESIDENT. New-York is proud of the fact that there sits at the head of our national government to-day one of her citizens, who. though suddenly called to assume those great duties is discharging them with dignity and courage, and whose early training in the affairs of state within our 'orders fits him for his great responsibilities. "We know him to be honest, cour ageous and upright, and we ask from you the same kindly consideration, the same support, that is ac corded by those who know him and respect him for his worth We are glad to recognize that through his energy. the perseverance and the determination of your citizens, this exposition has been made possible, be cause there la no form of teaching or learning which Impresses Itself so forcibly upon the mind as the study of the works which have resulted through the ingenuity of man; the application of science or machinery, or the knowledge of agriculture, which makes two blades of grass sxpw where but one has grown before It is an education that cannot be ob tained from books, but rather of that kind that s*es "sermons in stones, books In running brooks and good in everything." , While to the t«neral government has been dele rated the right to govern our intercourse with other countries, to regulate our interstate commerce and to protect our manufacturers and our farmers from undue and unwise competition, to build our har bors to equip our armies and perform other func tions which ar» necessary for our national pros perity, yet there remains to us as a result of me wisdom of the features of our constitution many thii.es which it Is the- Inherent and Deeeaajan dut> of the- State to perform. Th* prosperity and good fame of the State depend upon its equity Me and just treatment of fill classes and all individuals. And the desire of the most humble to contribute to. the wellbelng of the State should be as cordially welcomed and his interests .be a* thoroughly pro tected as thore of the most learned scholar or tne multi-millionaire Taxation without representation. which fired the blood of our forefathers-, is a prin ciple which .iep dormant in the minds of our citi zens, and unequal or unjust taxation will be just as strongly resented to-day— not. perhaps, with the bullet, but by that more potent weapon in the hands of freemen, the ballot. .Tnßtiep should be measured out equally to all. Rights should not be accorded to corporations that are denied to the Individual. T'.oth should be permitted to pursue their proper functions within the limitations of our laws and both should be protected in doing so. Labor is king, the producer is the sovereign and labor does not require nor does it perk paternalism. but it does demand and should be accorded such protection as will safeguard the lives, the health and th* property of tho=" who build our great com mercial enterprises. Th<-s*» are functions of the Stat<>. * Education which teaches the mind by bringing the eye in range with the fauna and flora of the earth! in the public parks and in the public zoologi cal gardens, is as important as any courso laid down in the curriculum of our colleges. It lies with!" 1 the generosity of the cities within our bor ders to accord the worklntrman this opportunity •while enjoying the greensward of our parks and the wonders of the earth. EDUCATION JUSTIFIES EXPENSE. If expositions were presumed to have no other ob ject than the strengthening »nd cementing of th« bonds between e,ur States, while bringing into our lives examples that lea ■'. us to renewed activity and to view the wonders and possibilities of the various recl<->ns of our country— if. I say. there should be no corresponding commercial advantages to he sained, this educational feature would alone suffice and he a Justification for this vast expendi ture of money: but wh«>n we look back upon the exposition celebrating the anniversary of our birth as a nation, when we observe the wonderful prog ress that has been made in the arts, in manu factures and in science, we wonder at our mar vellous growth and are impress.-d with the belief that America and her people are justly entitled to the encomiums tint have been showered upon h»r by the world, which has viewed her success with amazement a^d her progress with surprise.

CHARLES M. JESUP'S ADDRESS. At the banquet this evening given to the New- York State Commission Charles M. Jesup spoke for the New-York Chamber of Commerce. His remarks were, in part, as follows: All who are loyal to the best interest of this na tion are watching the advanced development of the industrial activities or the Southern and bouth western States. It i* a fitting time to give ex pression to iMs. standing: as we do in the shadow of an exposition created to emphasize this substan "condltlons" which embody industrial develop ment and secure prosperity for any one section . re act as a stimulus to other portions of our land to Increase their efforts for further improvement, in the industrial development of the nat.on there no North. South. East or West This fact^ te evi denced by the interest of the State of New-York in its sNt~r State of South Carolina, as shown by the presence here to-night of so many men well known in the activities of New- York. I> Is the privilege of the Chamber of <_ommi»rco of the State of New- fork, through your .speaker. to congratulate the -ltlzcns of this historic city on the marked progress in the State of which it is so important a part. It is the fact that not mans years have passed since practically all the cotton products of South Caroll i were exported. How different the present conditions! Nearly all that product is now absorbed by the ever increasing and prosperous manufacturing interests of the State South Carolina's output to-day is not mere ly the raw material, but the f nished product. The era of warfare physical Is passing and Is rapidly becoming a matter for the historian The struggle to-day between nations is for commercial and financial sunremaey. As In the recent conflict with Spain. South Carolina was among the first of tho States to secure tre supremacy of the United States so in the struggle for commercial suprem acy South Carolina i* sure to bft found among the foremost of our States. It is not Inappropriate for me to say at this time. that the Chamber of Commerce of the State of New-York occupies a unique position. It la true as a matter of history that the Chamber of Com merce has always stood for the advancement ana prosperity of this country as a ration rather than tor local aggrandizement and sectional advances. From the point of view of the Chamber of Com merce calamity to the city of Charleston, should such ever arise, would be a calamity to th*> < ham ber of Commerce of the State of New-York Conversely the advancing prosperity of the State of South Carolina is a matter for congrat ulation and rejoicing to the Chamber of Commerce of the State of New-York, and I so voice its sentiments to you.

A MAY TRAM TO MAIXE RESORTS. Lack of night train service has always been a drawback to the summer resort in Maine, such as Poland Springs. Bar Harbor, Mount Desert and Mooschcad Lake, as well as places in the White Mountains. President Hall of the New-York, New- Haven and Hartford Railroad announces that such service will be established this summer. A special sleeping car train will leave the Grand Central Station about 9 p. m.. with through sleep ing cars for Fabyan, in the White Mountains, which point will be reached in time for breakfast the next morning, and another through sleeping car- to Portland and Far Harbor, Me.

All over the world, therefore, we seek new mark, -ts- -seek to incr.-ase existing markets One mark.t for part of our surplus is at our doors, ana •to seize that market the Republican party will establish reciprocity with our wards in < aba. mis Island which we have made anew, bought from all the world even under the pHralyzlng rule of Spain moro than SfiKnoo..** worth of products every year. Absolutely everything the people of Cuba neert is produced in American factories and farms. Cuba s purchases in thf future will Increase in ever ac cumulating volume. American administration has opened modern schools throughout the island, and where only a few thousand Cuban children were being poorly taught when we took charge a quarter of a, million now are given modern education. American administration has established a system of postofllces and post roads, and the Cuban planter i« in daily touch with the American farmer, manu facturer 'and laborer. Congress has decreed per petual American guardianship to Cuba's foreigu relations, finance sanitation, naval stations, ana. over all. the right of the United States to send its soldiers th«re at any time to preserve order, prop erty life and law; and this American suzerainty has been adopted in the constitution of Cuba Itselr. These condition* have already started streams of American investment and American citizens them selves flowing into Cuha: and Cuba, capable of supporting twenty millions of people. has now scarcely more than a. million and a hair. And therefor* where Cuba under Spain annually bought more than J65.n00.000 worth of products from the world, Americanized Cuba in ten years will a-im;ally buy J200.000.0n0 worth of products. The Republican party proposes that Cuba shall be per mitted »o spend that 13W.000.0C0 in the I'nited States^ And that Is what the first Republican measure of reciprocity means. If it Is said that our reciprocity with Cuba is not broad enough. ■»••* answer that ther«> must be h beginning, and from its results we can extend the policy if successful— modify it where defective; abandon 'it If advisable. The problem of reciprocity with the world is as delicate ss th«* problem of Mip«*r\ Wing th<- commercial and Industrial de velopments within the Republic itse'f All hnsin^ss is adiusted to our sy«t<rn of protection. But pro tection exists for business, not business for pro tection And. as It ceases to aid and begins to fetter the nations Industry, our tariff must he modified, but the change must be made with kr...w!.dge. caution. Judgment. The Republican party proposes to rearrange our protective tariJT only' where change* will continue or increase American prosperity, and not otherwise But th<* opposition would annihilate protection with one •Ingle, sudden, violent act. And business does not thrive on violence. PHILIFFINE EXPENSES Philippine expenses ar« mentioned. Who feels their burden?

II- grasped the hand of Senator Ueverldge and shook it warmly. Hi- spoke as fellows: We are met under circumstances that are promis ing to our country, for they promise the continued supremacy of the Republican party. My distin guished colleague has spoken of the capacity of thi> Republican party to rule. I echo and re-echo hln sentiment in that regard I think It Is an unde niable fa.t that the. Republican party Is as nm splcuoua In Its ability to rul«- as the Democratic party Is conspicuous in its Inability to govern this country We require in this country of ours men wh.> are trained and able to govern its great af fairs We want no political experimentalists. In the national administration we are progressing successfully to-day, under the leadership Of MM who succeeded to the Presidency under tragic cir ctlinstances. a loyal Republican, a statesman of commanding ability-Theodore Roosevelt. And our Btitei administration is so goo.l and so successful as to challenge Democratic criticism. It. rlosinc his address Senator Fairbanks paid a warm tribute to the memory of William Mc- Kinley, recounting at considerable length the circumstances of the tragedy at Huffalo. He closed with a confident prediction of Republican success. The committee on credentials reported that there were contests in the counties of Orange and Clark and the Seventh Ward, in Indianap olis. It reported in favor of the regular dele gates in all the contests, and the report was unanimously adopted. Following the adoption of the. report, ad d r p Sse j, were made by Congressmen James E. Watson and James A. Memenway and Frederick Lamlls, of Wahash, who roused loud cheers by his assertion that he believed "in the party of Mark Hanna. who had never lost a fight, and never would lose one."
