" London, February 16. John Boms, the organizer of the great dock strike and leader of the English protectarians, was inter Tiewed to-day with regard to his opinion on trades unionism and aristocratic concession. He said: "I am a Socialist to the bone and I look upon the concessions that the Em peror of Germany has been making to the democracy in the same light and yiew the charitable contributions of wealthy English men to the dock strikers as merely a sop to Cerberus." "But what do you believe will be the effect?" the reporter asked. THE ONLY ALTEBNATIVE. "The effect will be qnite different. In my opinion these concessions will but whet the appetite of the working classes, and in crease their discontent with the existing or der of things. Monarchy must either assimilate itself to the people or it must fall. I consider that no man has a right to use his individual liberty to the detriment of the standard of hit class. Therefore no man has a right to refuse to pay his trade union dues any more than to pay his taxes. I look upon orderly agitation as a challenge to the world. "What do you believe will be the result of the eight-hour agitation, asked the re porter, "The eight-hour agitation has al ready extended to Australia and will go further in time. "Working overtime is not favored by trade unionists who are strongly against A KADICAL BEMEDY, "Some unions even go so far as to propose to make their members forfeit their over time. Overtime means that some one is de prived of work and is liable to come on the sick fund. "What a man gains at overtime goes in at the spigot and out at the bung. Brain walk is not so monotonous as manual labor. For instance, the work of clerks is the hardest in the world, but not so physi cally exhausting, nor subject to such de grading discipline." "What do you expect to accomplish by the Maj-day meeting?" "The London Mav-day meeting will be the biggest demonstration ever seen. The Trades Council that controls the London meetings also governs Liver pool, Glasgow, Manchester, Dun dee, Birmingham and other large towns. X speak in London, but I have never made a penny by my words, written or spoken. Yet I am reproached with making capital for myself. NOT GETTING WEALTHY. "All I get is 2 a week and 1 for my ex penses in serving in the London County Council, much less than I earned when em ployed at Hoe's Printing Machine "Works." "What about Lord Headley's scheme?" "Lord Headley's gay society really means a lot of jail birds who go out in the morn ing to look for work and pray to God they may not find it." "What effect is it likely to have?" "None; it is nothing but an attempt to in troduce the Pinkerton detective system in England, and, effete as we may be here, England would not stand such a system for 12 hours without bloodshed." "But the Americans stand it." "Yes, but in America labor is not so well organized as in England. Americans allow wire pullers to boss them in the interest of one or other of the big parties. In five years from now American labor will be properly organized and then it will use politicians instead of being used by them." MAT COME TO AMEBICA. "Why don't you go to America yourself to give them your ideas?" "Well, I have an invitation from the Federation or Labor to lecture in the States, and I maybe able to accept it." "What effect had the great dock strike?" "A very great one. I estimate that the dock strike brought 300,000 recrnits to the labor unions, reduced the hours of work 40 per cent, and increased wages 30 per cent. The moral and political effect will be enor mous at the next election for Parliament, which will be determined by the labor ques tion." AH INTERESTING OLD NOBLEMAN. Qoeer Facts About the Earl of Sydney, Who Died Beceotlr. London, February 16 The title of Earl of Sydney becomes extinct by the death of one of the most interesting old noble men in England. He was 85, and began his career of service in the royal household during the reign of George I1L, being throughout his whole reign the Queen's trusted financial adviser. In per son he was the last surviving type of the elegant old gentleman in a blue frock coat, brass bnttons and reservedly pompons de meanor, and was the model from which Sickens drew the physical attributes of Sir Leicester Dedlock. This and his life-long intimate association with the inner court Bake It seem rather queer that he should to the last have been an ardent Home Kuler. His deep affection for Mr. Gladstone doubtless accounted for this, and the feeling was warmly recipro cated. He was twice Mr. Gladstone's Lord Chamberlain and made his tenure of the office memorable, the last time by a well meant but highly comical attempt to put long skirts on the ballet. AUSTRIA STIES DP A WAR CLOUD. The Bis Story Canted by a Dinner Russia M ny Quarrel. London, February 10. On the Continent there is a premonitory symptom of, a war scare to-day over the report that Austriais about to formally- recognize Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria. The report seems based on the fact that the Em peror and Count Kalnoky, who are botli in Pestb, dined on Thursday night witK Alexander ot Battenburg, qtherwise Count Hortenan, and that the next day the Pesth Lloyd, which is Kalnoky's private organ, contained two striking articles, one an nouncing that Alexander was to enter the Austrian army as a Colonel, with a view to a speedy promotion as Major General, the other declaring that Austria must promptly meet this last Bussian intrigue in Bulgaria by recognizing Ferdinand. Any action of this sort will, of course, stir up a hornet's nest and might as easily as not provoke the Czar to headstrong mea sures, but it must be done some time and this seems a rather better occasion than usual for it. The Bussian Minister at Bu charest, who has been a notorious agent of the Panslavists for years, is now de tected as the inspirer of the plot to murder Ferdinand and his Premier. An outrage of this grave natnre eives Austria a clear pre text for i counter demonstration of sym pathy. Of course, it is not certain that she will embrace it, and it is still less certain that Russia would take up the quarrel if she does, but as an element of anxiety and possible mischief the incident is worth attention. UNCLE SAlt MAT BE CALLED OX To Assist In Deciding the DIsputo Between England and Portugal. CBT DCKLAP'S CABLE COMPAXT.1 London, February 1G. Senhor Freitas, the new Portuguese Embassador, had his first meeting with Lord Salisbury. He ex presses himself as much pleased with the Prime Minister's cordial and satisfactory reception. Portugal proposed a commission of live to be appointed to fix the limitation of African territory, two delegates from England, two from Portugal, and one to be chosen by mutual consent Lord Salisbury is anxious that this fifth delegate should be an American, because American missionary interests in Africa are affected by the dispute. Portugal prefers the fifth delegate should be French, but will not oppose an American, provided the principal terms of arrangement be settled in London and Lisbon. BOULANGEE STILL IN THE FIELD.

Ju Shing Pong; the acting high priest of Joss, preached an off-hand sermon this afternoon at 16 Mott street The occasion was the dedication of the new shrine of the Chinese deity. The place was crowded with young Chinamen. The subject of the address was the success of the Chinese colony in New York, not withstanding the prevailing prejudice against the race in other parts of the United States. "New York," said Mr. Long, "is not only a great city, but a city filled with great men and superior brains, and that's why we are not persecuted here." Then the priest turned his attention to the financial condi tion of the temple, which he said had been prosperous until the community was blessed with a smart Christianized Chinaman called Chu Fong, who was taken to court for for gery." "If this is to be the conduct of a Chinaman who forsakes Confucius to follow Jesus," said Mr. Pong, "then I will beg of you to take warning and remain faitbtnl to Con fucius. Notwithstanding that the hades of the Christians is ten times warmer than that preached bv Confucius, yet its devotees are more ready to commit forgeries. Such crimes among us are unpardonable. The forger will be rolled up in a cheap mat and be made to stand on his head until every dollar is returned with compound interest instead of being allowed to brag of his abilities in a court of justice. I am glad that there is no other Christian merchant among us new who is as smart as Mr. Fong, and I beg you to stick to the church of Joss, the safest and best church now in New York."

Tho Guests Greeted With One Continued Bound of Plenanrc. New Orleans, February 16. To-day was the lost day virtually of the Saenger- fest and was dedicated to pleasure and en joyment alone. At noon the singers pro ceeded in a body to the West End depot where a special train was in waiting to con vey them to Lake Ponchartrain, where they, headed by a brass band of music, marched in the garden and at tables enjoyed themselves. After a sojourn of about an hour, the procession again formed and proceeded to the train, leaving West End at about 3 o'clock. They then took cars to Southern Park, where a picnic and shooting festival was given for their amusement. At night they returned to the city, and at 9 o'clock attended the grand ball, and a grand affair it was indeed. The spacious ball room was crowded with dancers, and it is safe to say that it was one of the most elegant events of the kind ever held. The attention of everybody is now directed to the approaching Carnival. FIRE IN AN ASILUM.

Female Friends Act as Seconds of the Fair Combatants. THE I0UNG MAN SKIPS FOE THE WEST, A Very Pecnllar Sunday Scene In a Prominent New Tort Hotel. Two fair members of an opera company fought with foils yesterday in a New York hotel for the affections of a Pittsburg young man. He had, wisely left town- with great alacricty. The duel-was a bitter one but did not result fatally. SPECIAL TELEGKAM TO THE DISPATCH. 1 New Yobk, February 16l Miss Louisa Hilliard and Miss Amelia Bell, both mem bers of the "King's Fool" Opera Com pany, met in a private room in the Metropolitan Hotel to-day and battled for 20 minntes with all the fury of Amazons for the affection of a mutual admirer. The weapons were fencing foils. Blood was drawn, gowns were torn, sharp adjectives were exchanged and altogether the affair was a feminine cyclone. It is said that the mutual admirer was ap prised of the approaching battle and left for the West on an early morning train. One ot the seconds at the "fencing bout" said that the name of the young man was Merrill, and that he was resident of Pitts burg. FIRST IN THE FIELD. Miss Hilliard was the first to arrive on the battle ground. She was accompanied by her sister. Miss Mollie Hilliard, and Miss Ada Walker, who acted as her seconds. 'Miss Hilliard was dressed in a maroon directoire costume, which later on suffered severely at the hands of her antagonist She picked np one of the foils lying on the center table, bent it nearly double, hummed French songs, and began to pace the floor in a nervous way that suggested gore and carnage. After abont half an hour's wait the bell rang, and Miss Bell sailed into the room with her seconds, bottle-holders and gen eral retinue, consisting of Miss Lou Nichols, Miss Mabel Nichols and a young man with an incipient mustache who evidently wished himself safely out of the whole business. The principals sized each other up in a cold, scrutinizing way. but said never a word. The seconds bowed in a stately, foreign fashion and preparations were at once made for the encounter. The services of Miss D. T. Engelhard had been enlisted as referee and general preventer of hair pulling. Miss Engelhard insisted that the combatants should wear wire masks, but the girls refused. THEY MEANT BUSINESS. They were not at all afraid of losing eyes and things. They wore no false bangs to" be strewn to1 the four winds of heaven by the foil of an adversary. Both girls are brunettes with black eyes and both are plump and pretty. Finally Miss Englehard bade the girls get ready. .Notwithstanding the cool, otic an a way in wmen 'he,Lr"&elf to pnt themselves on a war footing. The Dispatch man was constrained to -turn ..-!,;. .... J nnn.n,nn. ;, I?7ileZll5"?!itl.atn?!-Uqual mnTwinirl hnirnrn- thm'tlm nrcM may be said, however, that the fencers were no more decollette in costume than many of New fork's 400, who air their charms nightly at opera or ball. "Are youready?" asked Miss Engelhard. For reply the girls spring to the center ot the room and their foils swing together with a shrill ring. "Look out for the chandeliers," sings out the referee, but both girls are past all con sideration for the chandeliers. With tight pressed lips and flashing eyes they besin a struggle In which science and anger figure in about equal proportions. The few spec tators are watching the dangerous game with breathless interest, and nothing is heard but the thud of the girls' feet on the soft carpet THE BATTLE EAGES. Thrust and parry, attack and retreat fol low each other so quickly that it is almost impossible to follow ' the fencers' mo tions. Suddenly Miss Bell lunges forward with a vicious grunt. The end of her foil strikes Miss Hillard squarely on the collar bone and glances upward like a streak of light Where the weapon has struck is a long streak of blood. ''Touched," pants Miss Hilliard, sav agely. Just at that moment the effeminate young man calls time and the first round is over. Miss Engelhard, the referee, refuses to allow the contest to proceed without the use of face masks. Both girls don them reluctantly and again step to the center of the room. The second round is much more vicious, than the first The foils hiss through the air like lightning, and the arms and shoul ders of the combatants aie streaked with red welts. In this bout Miss Bell scores three points and Miss Hilliard one. Both girls are on their mettle in the third bout, and neither scores a point Although they are tired and pant ing like pouter pigeons, they fight with all the strength and science known to art MISS BELL WINS. "Keep your distance." hisses Miss Bell, as her ODPonent forces her gradually to the wall. There is a sharp rally, and the time keeper saya: "Only .ten seconds more." Both girls make a gratia effort for a "touch," but in vain. Time is called, and Miss Bell is proclaimed the victor. "Now shake hands, girls," says Miss En gelhard to the tired Amazons. "No, I won't' exclaims Miss Hilliard. "Pooh," remarks Miss Bell. Then the respective seconds took the belligerent little mites of femininity overintoopposite corners and pumped fighting ethics Into their ears for ten minutes, and at the end of that time the two girls turned away their heads, shook hands and the dnel ended.

ISPECIAt TELEOEAJt TO THE PISFATCII. J Long Bbancii, February 16. For sev eral miles in a southeasterly direction from the highlands of Navesink lobster fisher men have plied their trade for years. Their lobster pots are ajl buoyed and in plain view from vessels passing up and down the coast, and it has become a common thing for a passing schooner or a Sandy Hook tug to haul a lobster pot on board, take out a couple or perhaps half a dozen lobsters and proceed. The fishermen did not mind that much, but of late the crew of an insignificant little black tug called the Invisible, which is said to belong up the Shrewsbury river, have been making aljus iness of stealing all the lobsters they could find. The fishermen opened fire on her at day break this morping from a steam launch called the Arrow, upon which a swivel gun had been mounted. The pirates were driven off. The war came to a temporary end to day. The Arrow lay off at Sandy Hook at daylight awaiting the appearance of the black tug. As nothing was seen of the tug Captain Joe Dennis put the Arrow around into Princess Bay in an endeavor to look her up. Captain Dennis believes the tug to be a Stat en Islander. Dennis denied that he fired the swivel gun to-day directly at the tug. He says he fired over he so as to trighten her. people. It is known, however, that in every fishing boat that puts off from here nowadays a rifle or sbot gun goes in the stern sheets. It is also saia that many fishermen would not hesitate to kill any lobster thief caught in the act of stealing. In the small boats that put to sea to-day there were rifles, and a fisherman assured a reporter that he was after big game. Many persons have patroled the beach to-day, half expecting to see a naval battle. Every outgoing tug has been closely watched through marine glasses, but not a tug had the temerity to tamper with a lobster pot. The Arrow will not be withdrawn from commission for a week or two, meantime boats with armed men will keep a watch on things at sea here abouts. The Arrow will protect the ocean from Seabright to Scotland lightship and along Sandy Hook.

An indictment of scandalous proportions was presented against the "B est Society" of St Louis, to day, by a Catholic priest and a host of wit nesses. At Alphonsus Catholic Church, James Hunt Lucas and Prudence M. Hunt were the contracting parties in the most fashionable wedding of the year. The wealthiest and most exclusive circles of St Louis were strongly represented, as the bride and groom are connected with the ultra-fashionables. No one was allowed in the church without a card of invitation. The people who attended the wedding showed themselves so devoid of respect, not to say common decency, that they were threatened with expulsion from the sacred edifice. They talked, laughed, joked, stood on seats, passed around candy, and even hung their wraps on images and the con fessionals. All this,, too, was done in the presence of the blessed sacrament. Father Brown denounced them from the altar. They laughed and talked and chewed gum. A witness says in the first place a great number of the ladies were in full dress, which, in itself, was shocking, for when they were all seated an observer was inclined to think they had come to wit ness a theatrical show and not the perform ance of a solemn ceremony in the house of God. They showed no respect whatever for the place they were in. Twice Bev. Father Brown came out and endeavored to effect quiet The -first time he exhorted, the second he threatened. Both bis threats and his exhortations were equally unavailing. In fact, some of the people, instead of being stung to the quick by his just rebukes, were highly offended at what he said and continued their disgrace ful conduct When the bridal party finally arrived the people abandoned all idea of propriety. They stood up on the seats of the pews and sat down on the backs in order to obtain a good view. BURNED THE BOX'S HAT To Keep Him in the House So That He Could Mot Talk. rSPECIAI.

Beed, an enterprising agent of the Ap pletons in this city, recently found himself in a very embarrassing although lucky situ ation, while innocently pursuing his daily labor. Soon after the delegates to the Pan American Congress reached Washington, Mr. Beed concluded that the gentlemen would be glad to invest in Appleton's new "Dictionary or American Biography." At the first opportunity the work, with the canvasser's card, attached, was laid before the delegates. While not particularly interested in the books, they concluded that it was policy to invest, and upward of 11,000 worth were purchased. But Beed was not yet satisfied and made another raid, this time on the delegates whom he had not met during his first visit Upon his second yentnre the canvasser encountered a Mexican, upon whose mind he endeavored to impress the great importance of the work for quick reference, etc. "Oh, yes," the delegate said, "I dare say it is a very important work, but the sales you made when you were here before were made under a misapprehension." "I don't understand yon, sir," said Mr. Beed. "Well, the facts are that the delegates who bought your books felt that it was in cumbent upon them to do so. They sup posed that you were Speaker Thomas B. Beed, of the House of Representatives, and so believing, construed their purchases to be not only a courtesy to that official but a compliment to the United States." FUNERAL OF TH01TA8 JAMES.

HEN WITH POLITICAL GEDDGES And Petty Spites Hide Behind Petticoats to Shield Themselves. ALL THE CRUSADERS TO BE ARRESTED. Their Social Sank Will 5ot Bate Then and Mors Trcnble is Anticipated. For the first time a true story of the tem perance crusade in Lathrop, Mo., is given to the public. The women are not altogether to blame, as men with political grudges and petty spites stood by and encouraged the women on in their work. Latheop, Mo., February 16. While the results of the temperance crusade that made such a furore in this little village have been spread broadcast, the truth of the matter has not yet been published. Men with political grudges and petty spites have; hidden behind petticoats and the- world has only heard of a woman's crusade, whereas, as a matter of fact, masculine enmity and local politicians inspired the whole affair. The topic is sill all-absorbing, for" the very good reason that three-fifths of the best women in the town are liable to be called before the grand Jury to answer a charge of trespass and riotous conduct. Their social rank will 'not save them, as the next grand jury will be'drawn by officials who are terribly incensed at the recent outbreak, and the law will be Invoked in aid of the injured parties regardless of consequences. But it is feared that this will not end the matter. "There will be bloodshed here yet," remarked one gentle man. "Just as soon as Prosecuting Attor ney Cross issnes the warrants the fun will commence, and any attempt to lay one of! those people under arrest will be met with a resistance that will terminate in riot. THEY SAT THEY 'WILL KILL. There are a large number connected with the temperance people who will kill any man who attempts to serve a warrant on their wives and daughters, and who have, already made threats to that effect." The facts sent out from this place have been colored by local influence and the ladies have had the best of it. To-day John A. Cross, the Prosecuting Attorney, told the following story: The mistaken impression has gone abroad that this was a woman's crusade, when it was really started and en gineered bymen, and during all the dis turbance there was present a man for every woman. The names of these men have never been made public, as they have shielded themselves behind the women's petticoats. J. T. Carmichael, a Baptist minister; Jacob Bohart, Sr., Dr. F. Mun day, who had an ax, and wanted to smash the billiard tables; Editor McKee, of tha Lathrop Jbntfor; B. F. Cochran, an ex saloon keeper; E. G. Kinney, a former grand juryman, who never summoned a witness and never indicted a man; Charles P. Jones, cashier of the Lathrop bank, and SOotbers. The-edifrrof theJonftor is re sponsible for the outbreak as he incited the outrage on attacks on officials iu his paper. THE OTHEE SIDE OF THE STOBY. The Crusaders offer the following is hav ing formed the basis for their actions: The immediate cause of the outbreak was a stabbing affray January 27 last, when John T. Brooks, a resident of Lathrop, was se verely cut by Abe Scruggs, a farmer, while both were intoxicated. Mrs. Brooks, the wife ot the man who was stabbed, is perhaps more directly responsible for the outbreak than any one person. In discussing the affair one day she remarked to a neighbor that if she had anvone tohelpher she would break into every saloon in town and pour the liquor into the street. The neighbor replied: "I will go with you or get 25 other women to go." It wa? then that a pnblic meeting was called, and it was de cided to circulate a paper asking the women of Lathrop to pledge themselves to exter minate the liquor traffic in their town. The dav of their trouble the woman gath ered together at the Opera House and headed by the Bev. M. Carmichael, marched dowu street. When the women reached Ward's saloon they stopped on finding the door locked and a crowd gathered inside, and had tbey not been urged would have gone no further. But as they were ashamed to back out, they simply went wild, and smashing the glass in the door, unlocked it and went in. The crowd in the saloon had partially vanished, but Ward, the proprie tor, stood guard. He made a futile attempt to expostulate, but lie was swept from the fieldand the door which separated the back room, or barroom from the billiard room was burst. By this time the woman had provided themselves with various bombard ing instruments. Some had axes, others hatchets, and still more had etones. These had been furnished them by the admiring crowd without. The sight of the beer bottlesand whisky barrels incited the women to renewed action. The whole thing developed into a riot, each woman vieing with the other in seeing how much damage she could do. The stuff was brought to the edge of the sidewalk, where some difficulty was experienced in smashing the bottles, so the men were. called to carry up stones and lay them on the side walk to hit the bottles on. BEADY FOE ANY LAVfLESSNESS. After raiding Carroll's saloon the women had worked themselves up to a pitch where they were r"ady for any lawlessness, and marched into drug stores and grocery stores and searched the premises, and had almost made up their minds to go into private houses, but abandoned that idea. One of the women told the rest that she knew a house where they kept liquor all the time, and advised that it be raided. The lady who lived in that house was informed of what might take place, so going up to one of the leaders she said: "I understand that you think of raiding private houses to see "if you can find any more whisky. X want to tell you that wo keep whisky in our honse and always wilL I also have a double-barreled shotgun that is loaded, and the first man or woman that crosses my doorway with the intention of searching the house will get the contents of both barrels." The situation now may be said to be quiet, but it is the quiet before the storm. All concerned in the crusade have cooled down and are beginning to realize what they have done, and would be only too willing to have the matter dropped. But there is no likelihood of its being drooped. The prosecuting attorney was threatened time and again with violence if he attempt ed to perform his duty. Thomas Ward, one of the saloon keepers, has filed inrormatioc, making a criminal charge against every man and woman in the crowd, and they will be arrested. Ward has also begun suit on a claim for (1,000 for liquor destroyed. It has been openly charged that the city officers were bribed to not molest the saloon keepers. An examination of the record in the Mayor's office shows that an arrange ment was entered into between the saloon men and the officials, whereby the former were to go to the Mayor's office once a month, pleading guilty to selling liquor, and be fined. This arrangement has been carried out for the last six months, the men, being fined $10 each, which was divided be tween the Mayor, Prosecuting Attorney and. Marshal as fees. &b f. THREE
