Labor Convulsions on the
President Gompers Publishes
The Carpenters and Joiners to be
Aided in Their Fight.
A Tremendous Uprising of Railroad Em
ployees at Pittsburg—Strike News
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Chicago, April 22. —Samuel Gompers,
president of the Federation of Labor, to
night issued an address to the "wage
workers and sympathizers with the
progress of America." He says: "In
accordance with, the resolution of the
Boston Convention of the American Fed
eration of Labor to select a trade to make
a demand for the enforcement of the
eight-hoar work-day, May Ist, the Exec
utive Council have decided that the
United Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners of America shall make the de
mand. It appears that the wealth,
power and influence of the employing
and corporate classes of the country are
to be concentrated to defeat the move
ment, which seeks not only to improve
the condition of the employed,
but which will find employment,
and consequently save from pov
erty, degradation and despair, hun
dreds and thousands of our idle fellow
men and women. In view of this situ
ation it will be necessary for the wage
workers and the friends of America to
rally with greater unanimity of purpose
than ever before. To concentrate all
their efforts to counteract and overcome
tlie action of our enemies, they must
voluntarily contribute their mite to
place at the disposal of the American
Federation of Labor a sum of money
sufficient to meet all contingencies."
This evening Gompers addressed a
mass meeting in Chicago. He de
nounced as lepers the non-unionists who
were now taking the places of the strik
ing carpenters of Chicago.
Some striking carpenters this morn
ing attacked some non-union men at
work, and handled a police sergeant
who interfered, roughly. Finally fifty
of the rioters were arrested by the po
All the brick-makers in the northern
and northwestern parts of the city, to
the number of 1,000 men, struck today
for a rate of 7,000 bricks for a day's

remain the same. The bosses are not
worried, as owing to the carpenters'
strike, everything is at a standstill in
the building line.
The Trouble at Pittsburg Assumes Tre
PrrrsßUßG, April 22. —The Brother
hood of Railway Trainmen has taken
up the cause of the switchmen. Various
meetings have been held throughout
the city, but the most important was
held by the Brotherhood of Trainmen,
which takes in the brakemen, firemen,
etc. They not only resolved to cling
to the switchmen in their demands, but
also presented grievances of their own
to be adjusted. In addition to
the trouble now on hand the
car-inspectors, freight-handlers, car
cleaners, clerks in the freight offices
and men employed in the transportation
department will present in the morning
a list of their grievances. The shopmen
employed in the numerous shops about
the city will also present certain de
mands. The situation tonight is all the
more grave in that the men have not
been idle, while the railway officials
have up to tonight treated the demands
of the men with something like indiffer
■ence. Grand Master Wilkeson says to
night they can call out 14,000 men if
necessary, and as the entire brotherhood
is involved, the strike will extend from
New York on the east to New Orleans on

How the Contract Labor Law is Violated
at New York.
New York, April 22.—The sub-com
mittee of the joint Congressional com
mittee on immigration continued its
inquiry here today. T. B. McGuire, of
the Knights of Labor, was further exam
ined. He said the contract labor law
does not work satisfactorily, owing to the
neglect of the District Attorney
to prosecute cases brought to his
attention. Immigration is being stimu
lated by the steamship companies
by misrepresentation. McGuire swore
that the padrone system was in opera
tion in New York; that the padrone got
places for Italian immigrants on public
works by paying the bosses, and in re
turn charging the men for getting them
Indianapolis Strike Settled.
Indianapolis, Ind., April 22. —A com
mittee from the striking carpenters' and
contractors' association met with Mayor
Sullivan this afternoon, and after a five
hours' conference, reached anjagreement
which settles the eight-hour strike.
The contractors ajjree to pay competent
.carpenters and joiners 30 cents per
hour, and concede the eight-hour day.
About 500 men resume work tomorrow.
More Imported Molders.
San Francisco, April 22.— Tonight
eight more Eastern iron-molders arrived
to take the places of the strikers. They
were brought from Rocklin in a special
train, and at Army Point transferred to
a tug which took them to the Union
Iron Works. Their arrival was a com
plete surprise to the strikers.
San Francisco, April 22. —Superin-
tendent Fillmore, of the Southern Pa
cific, returned today from a trip to the
scene of the recent accident at Te
hachapi. He made an investigation as
to the cause of the accident, but says
the result of his inquiries will not be

The Trial of tlie Enterprise's Commander
New York, April 22. —Tlie court-mar
tial of Commander McCalla, of the En

noon at the Brooklyn navy " yard. The
charges are the ones reported by the re

Harmony is president of the court.
Lieut. Perry Garst is Judge-Advocate

Availing himself of the privilege
grunted by the court, Commander Mc-
Calla objected to Captain Beardslee, the
Commandant of the receiving ship Ver

objection was sustained.
McCalla entered a formal plea of not
guilty to all the charges and specifica

ernor Sends Boats to the Rescue.
New Orleans, April 22.—Governor
Nichols has received the following
message from Bayou Sara: "We have
been overwhelmed by the storm and
rain. Crevasses are numerous along the
front. The old Morganza levee is
broken. Send a boat at once to save the
people or there may be a great loss of
life. (Signed) Martin Glynn,

Relief Boats Dispatched.
Governor Nichola at once made ar
rangements with tlie owners of the
steamer Arthur Lambert, then at Baton
Rouge, and the boat started immedi
ately for Points Coupee, with barges,
to render assistance. Other boats will
be sent up tonight.
Governor Nichols was interview ed this
evening, and stated that Captain Jack
son, presidentof the International Trans
portation Company, has placed two
steamers with barges at his disposal. He
had accepted them, and they are now en
route for Morganza. He stated that he
had also telegraphed Colonel Wheelock
and Captain John A. Grant, of the Texas
and Pacific railroad, requesting them to
place the steamer Wheelock in the same
service. The Texas and Pacific railroad
officials in this city are in great fear of
the overflow; their lines traverse the

in Pomte Coupee is terrible. It is re

The situation in Bayou Sara is frightful.
No house in town is above the flood. The

MARKHAM IS THE MAN.
Judge Carpenter Says Waterman's With
drawal Gives Him the Nomination.
San Fkancisco, April 22.— Ex-Judge
R. B. Carpenter, of Los Angeles, was
seen at the Grand hotel tonight, and in
fesponse to a question as to what he
thought of the announcement that Gov
ernor Waterman had declined to permit
his name to go before the convention,
said: "It is definite and certain that
Governor Waterman is out of the race,
and such being the case, it makes the
nomination of Colonel H. H. Markham
for Governor a certainty, for while
there are other gentlemen in
California who have been named
by their friends favorably for
that office, it is conceded that
Southern California is entitled to
the candidate if the party there can
unite on one man. The withdrawal of
Governor Waterman accomplishes that
result, and the trend of public opinion
is so shown throughout the State toward
Markham, that it is impossible that
either of the gentlemen named will
make much headway against him, and
the entry of a dark horse will be
impossible. Markham will grow every
day from now until the date of the elec
tion. He has never been an office
seeker. He was a brave soldier in the
war, a good citizen in peace and is a
man of ability and affairs and of high
personal character and social standing.
He is possessed of a good address and
common sense, and will make a strong
candidate, and one of the best Gov
ernors the State has ever had."

ernor Waterman and staff, General
Alger, Mrs. Alger, Mrs. John A. Logan
and others. Mrs. Logan's appearance
was greeted with great applause.
In responding to the toast, "The
Grand Army," General Alger said: "In
reflecting on the prosperity of Califor
nia, it should not be forgotten that it is
all due to the sen-ices of the G. A. R.;
without the deeds of the boys in blue
the country would have been ruined and
the Pacific never would have been de

pay for its blood, but gratitude demands
that it should be cared for."

THE SMITH-CARKOLL PRIZE FIGHT
The Australian Knocked Out in the Four
teenth Round—The Brooklyn Boy Had
It All His Own Way.
San Francisco, April 22. —Billy Smith,
of Australia, and Jimmy Carroll, of
Brooklyn, fought to a finish at the Cali
fornia Athletic Club tonight, for a purse
of p ,600, $200 to go to the loser. Smith
weighed in at 161 pounds, and Carroll
Both men had the reputation of being
rushing fighters, and they at once com
menced landing hard blows at short
range. Carroll landed oftener, and be
fore the round was closed blood was
Mowing from Smith's nose. There was
little time wasted by either in sparring.
The heavy slogging was continued in the
third round, and though Carroll's at
tacks were the fiercer, Smith reached
the Brooklyn man's ribs in the most
dangerous manner, and caused him to
show the effects of his punishment.
In the fourth round the men stood at
close quarters and pounded away
at each other. Carroll seemed
to be getting winded. Towards the
close of the round there was a sharp
rally, in which Smith reached Carroll's
neck half a dozen times. The same
tactics were pursued in the fifth and
sixth rounds. Both men were evidently
trying to bring the fight to an end as
quickly as possible..
Both men had received heavy punish
ment during the first six rounds, and
their rushes in the seventh were not so
In the eighth there was more pound
ing, with honors about even,
but in the ninth Smith did
the most leading. But little was done
in the next round, but at the opening of
the eleventh, Carroll attacked Smith
fiercely, and rained half a dozen right
handers on his neck and body.
The thirteenth round opened with
Smith very weak, and Carroll tried hard
to finish him, reaching him with
his right and left in quick succession.
Smith staggered all around the ring, the
blood pouring from his nose, and when
the gong sounded the close of the round
Smith was almost gone.
When the men came to the center of
the ring for the fourteenth, Car
roll swung his left and reached Smith's
jaw, and Smith fell on his face,
and hardly made a move for eight sec
onds, when he made a feeble attempt to
rise. It was a complete knockout, how
ever, and the Australian's seconds had
to lift him from the floor and carry him
to his corner.

Horsethief Woodruff's Al
A Lie Manufactured Out of the
He Didn't Know Anything About the
That is Now Attorney Longenecker's Con
viction, Although He at First
Believed His Story.
Associated Press Dispatches.:
Chicago, April 22.—The sensational
"confession" of Frank Woodruff which
was so generally published last autumn,
and which, among other things, stated
that Alexander Sullivan, ex-president of
tlie Irish National League, in Woodruff's
presence, handed a sum of money to
Martin Burke, one of Cronin's murder
ers, has been entirely discredited by the
authorities here. It is stated that Attor
ney Longenecker, in dismissing the
charge of murder against Woodruff, thus
referred to this sensational confession:
"The State lias no evidence to
implicate this defendant in the
Cronin murder except the state
ment or confession of Woodruff
himself. We have, after a full investi
gation, come to the conclusion that the
confession was wholly fabricated by the
prisoner, and that he had no connection
whatever with the Cronin murder. The
State will therefore not prosecute Wood
ruff upon this indictment."
To an Associated Press representative
today, State's Attorney Longenecker
said: "lam satisfied that Woodruff's
confession was simply a lie from begin
ning to end. I will admit however,
tflat at the beginning we credited it so
much that it greatly misled and ham
pered us in working out the case. The
tact is we have now ascertained that
Woodruff simply manufactured this
whole story in the hope that his
professed knowledge of a greater crime
might secure him an immunity for the
lesser offense of horse-stealing." I am
satisfied now that he knew nothing
about, and had nothing to do with, the
Cronin murder in any connection. His
story was simply the cunning subter
fuge of an inveterate liar and amateur
horse-thief. We are going to send him
to the penitentiary for horse-stealing, if
we can. Woodruff's confession was
widely circulated at that time, and did
great injustice to Alexander Sullivan
and others whose names were freely

Stanford today sent a telegram to Presi

"It is reported that you think the ap
propriation for the public building at
San Jose too large. San Jose is an im
portant and beautiful city, the center of
a rich and prosperous section of our
State. It has over 20,000 inhabitants in
the city proper, and is rapidly and
surely growing. Its suburbs are exten
sive, and the whole country tributary to
it is thickly settled. I think the ap
propriation will not more than purchase
a lot and provide a building in harmony
with its surroundings. I hope you may
find it consistent to approve the bill."
