The Miners' Union, with upward of

More than 2,000 have refused to recog

leadership of agitators of the Indus

from the ibg organization this morning-
attacked the Miners' Union parade,
composed of more than half the union
bodies of the city. President Hert
Itiley of the X'nion and Parade Marshal
Michael Conway were knocked from
their horses by a volley of stones from
the rioters. Other officers of the
union were chased from the line of
march and took refuge in the sheriffs
The parade was broken up and the
speaking- exercises in the theater were
abandoned because of the stormy
street scenes. The rioters moved on

Every piece of furniture in the building-
was demolished and thrown out
into the street. The piano was thrown
down stairs and broken into splinters
and books and records and two safes

The mob did not cease its work of j
destruction until even the carpets in
the big- assembly hall had been torn
from the floors and thrown into the
street. A crowd of 10,000 persons
witnessed the demonstration. The po
lice and sheriffs deputies were power
loss. Sheriff Driscoll went to the
Miners' Union hall, but soon returned
to his office in the court house when
word came to him that union officers
had taken refuge there and were about
to be attacked by another section of
the ciowd.
Chief of Police Murphy, during the
midst of the turmoil, sent out a score
of officers to close all the saloons.
Half a dozen saloonkeepers who re
fused to obey were taken to jail. It
was also decided to call off a boxing
bout scheduled for this evening.
Tonight the disgruntled faction of
the miners held a meeting in the Au
ditorium to take steps toward the for
mation of a new miners' union under
the Industrial Workers of the World.
The trouble had its origin over the
dissatisfaction of the miners with the
heavy special assessments levied
against them by the officers of the
Western Federation of Miners and the
local officials as benefits for the Mich
igan copper mine strikers. Some of
mi- mint-in were saiu 10 oe paying as 1
nign as eight to ten dollars monthly in
assessments. More than $200,000 had
been sent fiom Butte to Michigan. Al

LONDON, June 3. Gambling on
the -derby recently won by an
American horse is believed to have
attracted more money this year than
ever. The first prize of the Calcutta
sweepstake lottery, which is the most
popular method of risking one's
money, amounted this year to about
$300,0u0. Ten years ago the invest
ments in this lottery warranted a
prize of only $100,000. The prize as
it now stands is probably the largest
offered by any reliable form of lot
terv in existence.
! The Calcutta Turf Cluh started this
lottery as a mere club affair many
years ago, but when the sale of
tickets was thrown open to all ap
plicants the investments rapidly grew
until this year saw them coming from
all paits of Europe, all the liritish
colonies, and the irient.
The London stock exchange had a
sweepstake this year 'which offered a
first prize of 12,r00. This also was
originally a friendly affair among
members but it has become almost a
puldic business. Members subscribe
for batches of tickets and sell them
to outsiders at a premium. At par
value of the tickets brought five
sixteenths premium this year.

44th and 46th congresses. From 1SS5
to 1883 he served as first assistant
postmaster general under President
His last appearance as a candiuatt;
for public office was in 1908 when he
was nominated for governor of Illinois
by the democratic party and was de
feated by Chas. S. Deneen, republican.
He was born in Christian county,
Kentucky, October 23, 1S3H of Scotch
Irish parentage. In 1853 his parents
tended the public schools and the Illi

1S68. During these ten years he held
the office of master in chancery four
years and district attorney for a simi
lar period.
In ISfiS he returned to Blnominglon
and formed a law partnership with his
cousin, James S. Ewing and for mam-
years the firm was one of the best

CHICAGO, June 13. Delegates to
the General Federation of Women's
Clubs had scarcely regained their
tranquility after approving woman's
suffrage m principle and settled back
into traditional lines when the calm
was again shattered. It took placo
when the news came from Springfield
that the supreme court had upheld
the constitutionality of the suffrage
liws of Illinois. The news was greeted
j with 'gt eater applause than that which
I greeted the passage of the suffrage
resolution earlier in the day.
The bulletin had a hard time reach
ing the delegates, and, like a bomb
with a faulty fuse, it smoldered 011 the
chairman's table for fifteen minutes
before the explosion. This was due
to the rigid regulations designed to
maintain quiet and protect the speak
ers. The corridors outside were siz
zling with the news. Inside the audi
torium the delegates sat in contented
ignorance. The speakers continued to
occupy the delegates. Finally the bul
letin was read and was immediately
followed In- a burst of applause.
Opinions of the women differed as
to the effect of the endorsement of
equal sufrage. Mrs. Lucretia Rlanken-
burg of Philadelphia, vice president of
the Federation, characterized it as a
"step forward." Grace Wilbur Trout,
