MAY - DAY CELEBRATIONS. Mild Demonstrations in the European Centers! No Disorders of Any Conse quence Took Place. A Few Bombs Were Exploded in Italy, Belgium and France. Nearly Half • Million Working-men March in a Procession In London. A Very Qolet Day In the Fat lie-land. 1 Associated Press Dispatches. ' . London, May 1. —May-day demonstra tions were held today in most of the large cities of Great Britain and the continent, and in the various manufac turing and mining districts. Advices thus far show that the day passed har moniously, if not quietly. A black bag containing gun cotton, dynamite and gunpowder, also a belt filled with cartridges, and several docu ments written in foreign languages, was found beside Woolrich aresenal today. Mo fuse was attached, aud it does not appear that an attempt was made to cause an explosion. A large procession formed on the Thames embankment and marched to Hyde park, where a monster meeting was held. Addresses were made by Cunningham, Graham, Tom Mann, Ben Tillett, and Stepriack, tbe Russian Ni hilist. Resolutions were adopted de claring in favor of an eight-rfour day, and calling upon parliament to paso an eight-hour bill. No disturbance oc curred, although tbe demonstration was the largest ever organized in this city. The workiogmen began to assemble on the bank at 10 o'clock, each contin gent headed by a band of music, and every contingent carried banners, while the men themselves were bedecked with rosettes and flowers. The proces sion inarched in perfect order and with almost military precision. It occupied nearly three hours in entering Hyde park, and it is estimated that from 300, --000 to 500,000 men participated. A large force of mounted and foot police and a contingent of the ambulance association were present. The assem blage dispersed quietly. Demonstrations were held in Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow and most of the large towns of Great Britain and Ireland. Xhey were modeled after the Hyde park meeting, but on a smaller scale; they were attended by no disturbance. MAY DAY IN FRANCE. Much Quieter Celabiattonx Than Had Been Anticipated. Paris, May 1. —May day was ushered in with the police on the gui vive, and the strongly enforced garrison of Paris were ready for instant service. At an early hour the proceaaion began to form for tbe march in the Salle Faire. In stead of 10,000 men taking part in the demonstration, only 2000 were present. A number of speeches were made, and Vaillant declared that this waa the last time that the claims oi the workingmen would ba argued in thia form. The workingmen this year here delivered an ultimatum to the government on the question of an eight hour day. If it did not result successfully, they would re sort to more energetic measures to secnre their demand. BOMII EXPLOSION AT TOURS. At 2 p.m. the report of a dynamite outrage was received from Tours, a bomb being exploded near tbe Guise barracks. The noise of the explosion was terrific, and it was thought the Anarchists had blown up the national powder works, which are situated near Tours. Soldiers from the barracks went to the place where tbe explosion occurred and found a man lying senseless in a pool of blood. One of his hands was blown off and he was otherwise badly injured. No doubt he was the victim of his own crime. He was taken to a hqspital under arrest, and at last reports had not regained consciousneaa. When it was learned that an attempt was not made on the national powder works the minds of the people were considerably eased. Le Petit Journal says an unknown man placed an iron pot filled with pow der and scrap iron in a china shop on the Boulevard Voltaire, but he was compelled to decamp before he was able to ignite the fuse attached to the im promptu bomb. PEACE IN THE PROVINCES. Reports thus far received from the provinces are reassuring. The Social ists at Fourmies held a monster meet ing, but everything was far more quiet than had been anticipated. The presence of the prince of Wales in the city had a great effect in allaying anxiety. He paid a viait to President Carnot, and the latter returned the visit. Altogether the city showed little evidence of the alarm that might justi fiably have been felt. Only a lew more shops than usual were closed. HARANGUES OF LABOR LEADERS. At the Salle Fairie meeting, Vaillant's remarks provoked dissent from Bastin, who denounced police violence. The meeting applauded Bastin'a sentiments and refused to listen to the Marquis De Mores. The usual resolutions were car ried and the meeting dispersed in an orderly manner, singing the Carmag nole, and shouting: "Vive la revolution sociale!" A crowd of sight-Beers collected in the place de la Concorde this afternoon, were easily dispersed. In view of the quiet prevailing, the minister of the interior removed the in terdiction of public balls and concerts for tonight. NO ARRESTS IN PARIS. The prefrct of police stated late to night that he saw no further necessity for tbe further retention of the military, as the Republican guard and the police . sufficed to sustain order. He also stated that not a single arrest was made. The municipal elections absorbed LOS ANGELES HERALD. most of the feeling of the provincial pub lic. Polling proceeded quietly. At Lyons the police removed a num ber of inflammatory placards and fonnd cartridges in the police station and town hall, but no damage was done and no disturbance occurred. At Toulon but five militant Anarchists were arrested. A panic was caused among the people attending the cathedral at Gbarlois by an explosion in the nave. The con fusion was abated when it was found that the explosion was caused by a eqtiib placed in the nave by some mis chievous urchin. EXPLOSIONS IN BELGIUM. Serious Damage Dune at Liege—Peace ful Labor Demonstrations. Brussels, May 1. —A tin cylinder with a fuse attached was found between the colonnades of the foreign office tonight. The discovery created great alarm, which was intensified by news from Liege, where two dyna mite cartridges .were exploded, this evening, one in the residence of Jailor Deslys, and-the other in the resi dence of bis son. Tho explosion caused serious damage to property. Enormous crowds collected at the scenes of the ex plosion. Later, another explosion oc curred in the choir of St. Martin's church, by which the stained windows valued at $20,000, were shattered into fragments, and hundreds of panes of glass in the adjacent houses smashed. A fourth cartridge, with a spent fuse, was discovered later on. A feeling of wild panic prevails there. Reports from other parts of Belgium speak of the labor parades and meet ings as remarkable for the displny of the greatest good humor. The miners of the Mons, Boriuage and La Louviers districts assembled in strong force. PEACEFUL AUSTItIANS. Unique Features of tho May-Day Cele brution In Vienna. Vienna, May I.—During the afternoon workingmen to the number of 20,000 gathered on the Pater. No speeches were made, but at 5 o'clock, on giving a prearranged signal, the voices, of the vast assemblage broke forth .with grand effect, singing The WorkiDgman's Hymn, with wonder ful enthusiasm. No troops were visible throughout the day. Re ports from the Austrian provinces indicate that interest in May day cele brations is declining. The most re warkable meetings here were the gath erings of women at Meulerchenfeld, who listened intently for two hours to really eloquent speeches made by Fraulein Gretinger, a dressmaker, and Fraulein Dvorak, a cork-cutter. A Bomb Explosion In Slnlgaglla Wrecks the Casino. Romk, M»v I.—The day passed quietly here. Detachments of Italian troops guarded the Vatican. King Hnmbertat the accustomed hour set fourth on his daily drive through the crowded streets. He met with a continuous ovation. At Bologna and Riviera there were ecu files with the police. At Bologna the cavalry cleared the streets. A dispatch sent from Ancona at mid night says during the evening a bomb was thrown into the casino at Sinigag lia City. The missile exploded with great force. The windows of the build ing and all the furniture in tbe casino were demolished. Several arrests are made. Unbroken Peace In the Fatherland De- spite Socialistic meetings. Berlin, May 1. —11 p. m.—Except for a few private fights, the day here was unbroken peace. The inclemency of tbe weather prevented outdoor fetes to any extent. The breweries used as places of meeting were profusely draped with red material and packed with aud itors. The Socialists held in all twenty four meetings in the city proper and suburbs. At Hamburg there was an immense parade, in which 33,000 persons participated, and a mon ster meeting. Throughout Saxony and Thuringia there was a marked falling off in attendance at the labor meetings, as compared with those last May day, because of drenching rain. At Munich, on this account, the celebration was postponed until next Sunday. NO DISORDERS IN SPAIN. But Bomb* Were Found and Many An archist* Arrested. Madrid, May 1. —No disorders are re ported from any part of Spain. At Se ville a priest found a bomb with a lighted fuse on the floor of the church confessional, but extinguished it. At Barcelona the police found a bomb in the streets and arrested seventeen per sons. After the bomb was found, the prefect closed the Anarchist cluba and placed policemen at the doors of tbe workingmen's clubs and then ordered 1 an immediate raid on the houses of a number of notorious Anarchists. As the result thirty arrests were made, and various proclamationa, flaga and letters seized, but not explo sives were found. Several Anarchists Arrested In Chicago for Carrying Bed Flags. Chicago, May 1. — Notwithstanding the order of the police officials prohibit ing the display of the red flag and other Anarchistic drapery in the parades which were the feature of the May-day celebration here, three sanguinary em blems appeared, and the bearers were promptly arrested and the offensive emblems confiscated. At the head of two dozen men from the Arbeiter Zeitung office, a red flag was carried. Debating clubs Nos. 1 and 2 also carried flags which were so red that they met the disapproval of Superintendent Hubbard. After watching the procession for some time, the Anarchistic emblems caught the eye of the superintendent, who immediately resolved to capture tbein. As the precession approached Madison street, on Clark, officers broke into the ranks and seized the men of the Debating club contingent carrying the forbidden flags. The prisoners were [Continued on Fifth Page.] THE DAY IN ITALY. QUIET IN GERMANY. MAY DAY IN AMERICA. MONDAY MORNING, MAY 2, 1892. WERE GOING TO FIGHT. Two California Congressmen Have a Difficulty. An Ugly Scene Between Messrs. Cutting and Geary. Henry Watterson Interceded and Pre- vented a Duel, General Catting Was the Aggressor and Being Convinced of His Folly Tendered an Ample Apology. By the Associated Press.] New York, May I.—A Washington correspondent in a story which he sends his paper affirms that a duel between Thomas J. Geary and- General Cutting, both congressmen from California, was prevented by Hon. Henry Watter son of Kentucky. A few nights ago, so the story runs, Geary was seated at Chamberlin's, in company with several New York congressmen and Colonel Watterson. General Cut ting, in a state of agitation, came into the room and addressed Geary and bis friends. (Jutting waß not acquainted with any one in the party except Geary, but he did not introduce him. This seemed to have annoyed Cutting, and he is said to have displayed a purpose to* mingle with the party anyhow. Geary, refusing to enter into conversation with his colleague. Cutting is said first to have sneered at Geary's Chinese exclusion bill and then to have called Geary a liar and finally to have applied to him a foul epithet. ' Then, white with anger, he is said to have risen and grasped a patent match safe and with it gave General Catting a stunning blow on his face and sent bim rolling several feet backward and drew blood. Recovering himself, Cutting advanced toward General Geary and as he did so he threw his band back ol him. This threw the company into a general state of excitement and everybody jumped to their feet. Col. Watterson rushed toward Cutting, while Geary put big hand into hi| rear trousers pocket and some one cried out: "Don't shoot!" but Geary was seized and Cutting was, it is said, got out and sent home. Mr. Geary proposed to have adequate satisfaction, but, the story runs, Watterson bestirred himself, and upon convincing General Cutting that he was wrong, and Geary tnat an apology should suffice, brought the men together on Saturday. General Cutting is said to have felt much aßnamed and apologized, and the men are now upon easy terms again. FIFTY-SECOND CONGRESS. Both Branches Seem Eager for an Early Adjournment. Washington, May 1. —The senate is disposing of business with a degree of rapidity in marked contrast with the conduct of affairs in the house. But two regular annual appropriation bills which passed the latter body remain to be acted upon by the senate. One of them, the naval appropriation bill, will doubtless be disposed of within ten days, and tbe other, tbe pension appropria tion bill, is'purposely withheld in com mittee in order to obtain a clearer in sight into the needs of the pension bureau. The resolution in relation to the Choc taw claims is unfinished business, and may be further debated tomorrow, When it is out of the way the bill for the protection of aliens will be taken up. The discussion under this head promises to be interesting, because it will doubtless touch upon the killing of the Italians at New Orleans, and will also involve a free expression of opinion upon the proper definition of the func tions of national and state governments. The revenue marine transfer will be called up Thursday. There are now four measures pressing upon the attention of the house, early consideration of which is urged on various Bpecial grounds. The measures are the Bryan free binding twine bill, the Hatch anti-option bill, the sundry civil appropriation bill, and the river and harbor appropriation bill. An early adjournment is one of the things earnestly desired by the majority party in the house, and in order to at tain it, the policy is to pass the appro priation bills aB speedily as possible, and Bend them to the senate so that on that body may be fixed the responsi bility for any possible prolongation of the session. The promptness with which the senate has passed the appro priation bills thus far sent to it, shows the interest it has for an early adjourn ment, and also gives increased belief in the possibility of its accomplishment. If the house does its part, the appro priation bills will, therefore, generally continue to be accorded right of way in the house. Tomorrow is suspension day, and per haps the Walker expunging resolution will be disposed of by a two-thirds vote under the special rule relating to sus pensions. The diplomatic appropriation bill will bs pressed to a final vote after one or two more days' consideration, and then may begin a struggle for precedence be tween the sundry civil and river and harbor appropriation bills. An effort will be made to quietly reconcile the conflict, but unless this can be done, the matter of precedence must be de cided by a struggle on the floor of the house. The chances are that the binding twine bill and the anti-option bill will have to wait on the two appropriation bills named. Reciprocity With Honduras. Washington, May I.—The president made public today a proclamation of reciprocity with Honduras. The sched ule of products and manufactures from the United States which the republic of Honduras will admit free of duty, is similar to those embraced in the reci procity proclamations previously made public. California Vinegar Works, 655 Banning street, opposite soap factory, pear Alameda and First streets, one-half block from electric light works. INDEPENDENT LAYMEN. A Snag That the Methodist General Con- ference Will Strike. Omaha, May I.—The Methodist gen eral conference will strike a snag in the shape of a declaration of independence on the part of the lay delegates, when the conference opens tomorrow. About one hundred lay delegates met tonight, and, after the election of a chairman and secretary, proceeded to the discus sion of the question of securing more power and influence in the general con ference than laymen usually exercise, and to ask equal representation with ministers at the general conference; also to aek the privilege of being seated in a body, separate from the ministers, at the conference. Shinkle, of Kentucky, opposed the pro positions, but T. M. Murphy, of Penn sylvania, favored them,' and his argu ment had considerable weight. After several speeches, pro and con, a resolution requesting the conference seat lay delegates separately, was put and carried, by a vote of 74 to 24. The meeting then adjourned to meet at the call of the chairman. THIS BROOKLYN lELA/.K, One Life Lost as the Resnlt of Sunday Morning's Fire. New York, May I.—Fire occurred at 2 o'clock this morning in a three story brick building at 199 Broadway, Brooklyn. Mrs. Mildred Tufft and nine children lived on the third floor. Before the fire department arrived the house was so full of smoke that Mrs. Tufft and five of the children were rescued with difficulty. Of the other children Mil dred, aged 8, was rescued badly burned; Benjamin, aged 11, wrb rescued, also terribly burned, and died this afternoou : Maude and Jennie, aged 16, escaped slightly injured. The house was dam aged to the amount of $3500. AN INCENDIARY'S WORK. The Famous Fair Lawn Stables Burned. Eleven Horses Perish. Lexington, Ky., May 1. —The cele brated Fair Lawn stables, the property of Smith McCann, were entirely de stroyed by fire tonight. They werf among the finest stock stables in the United States, and it cost over $15,000 to erect them. Of nineteen horses in the sta bles, eleven were burned to death, among the number being two full sisters of Phil Thompson, valued at $5000 each; two Red Wilkes fillies and a Robert McGregor colt. There was no insurance on the horses. The property is insured for half its value. The total loss will amount to $35,000. The fire was the work of incendiaries. AN INDIAN OROIE Remits In the Murder of a Half-Breed Near Madera. | Madera, Cal., May 1. —Early this [morning the body of Tom Brown, a half-breed Indian, was found in the county road near Roll's station, twenty three miles east of here. The body was slashed in a horrifying manner. Just above the nose was a cut an inch in depth, showing where a powerful blow had sent the knife. From meager facts obtained it is learned that a band of Indiana had been on a drunken spree in that vicinity the evening previous, and it is surmised that this caused the trouble. This morning a justice of the peace left to hold an inquest. Con stables from Madera and Fresno Flats are scouring the mountains for the In dians engaged in the spree, and for the persons who sold them the whisky. FELL WITH A LAMP. A Young Lady's Frlghtfnl Death at Napa. Napa, Cal., May I.—Miss Lucy Hull, daughter of Mark Hull, met a frightful death at a late hour last night. She was carrying a lamp, stumbled, and fell. Her clothing caught fire and she was so horribly burned that she died soon after. She was 30 years old. Murdered Over Curds. Caldwell, Kan., May I.—Charles Smith, a prominent young man of this place, was shot and killed this afternoon over a game of cards, by Bert Wil liams, a bartender. Williams was soon arrested by the sheriff, who thus far has been able to keep him self and prisoner in hiding for fear of lynching. A mob has formed and is making every endeavor to find the murderer. A Pickpocket Killed. Chicago, May I.—Joseph La Mon tange, an ex-convict, was detected in the act of pocket-picking in the crowds watching the labor day parade. He was pursued by Policeman Michael Raferty. La Montange ran into a yard on Boston avenue, and after a desperate struggle got the drop on the officer. Policeman Thomas Howard arrived in the nick of time and shot La Montange through the head, causing his instant death. Let Go Her Tow. Duluth, May I.—The steamer A. Everett arrived today without in tow the steamer Sophia Minch. The schooner let go the tow 'me about mid night Wednesday in one of the worst gales ever known on the lakes, and fears are entertained for the safety of her crew of nine men. Beginning of the Carlisle Boom. Louisville, May 1. —A call has been issued for a meeting of the friends of Senator Carlisle at Frankfort, next Thursday, to determine upon the line of action in pushing his candidacy for nomination for president. Every con gressional precinct will be represented. Death of a Methodist Patriarch. Somerset, Pa.. May I.—Rev. M. L.

UNCLE REMUS MADE A MISTAKE when he tied his mule's halter around his leg while he reached for his bridle; he afterwards re marked that "he done gone seed his mistake before dat mewel had dragged him a rod.'' Seeing your mistake will not alter the fact, if you make a bad bargain. Yesterday an elderly gentleman, accompanied by his wife, after purchasing of us a nice, genteel suit for $20.00, remarked to our salesman, "I see you do as you advertise in this store.'' "To what do you refer ?" said the salesman. "Why," said he, "you don't worry a man to buy, and you let him take his time. We were in a store down the street, and the sales man pestered us so much to buy what we didn't want, that we soon found we had made a mistake. You folks seem to have just what people want, and there is no occasion to try to force customers to buy what does not please them." There you have it. That's our position exactly; that's our success. Just what the gentleman remarked, in a nutshell. RIGHT GOODS! RIGHT PRICES! RIGHT TREA.TMEN T ! Corner Spring and Temple Sts. -* GRAND OPERA HOUSE. £~ Under the direction of AL HAYMAN.
