MASO.VKY ATTACKED
Iz a linpttut Conference and Ilov. Mr.
Cleveland Withdraw*.
Boston, June 22.?During the regular
Monday meeting of Baptist ministers In
Chapel Hall this forenoon, Itev. J. B.
Stoddard addressed the conference, at
its suggestion, upon tho inlluenco of
secret societies upon the church, and
in the courso of his remarks strongly
denounced Masonry, declaring that
wltmi n mnn uu-onru nIloi'innre hp fiweiirn
allegiance to a code antagonistic to U6d.
Kev. Mr. Cleveland, of Melrose, who
was in the audience, arose to a point of
order and with suppressed emotion said:
"I am a Mason und have listened to this
scathing stigmatisin of tho order in
patience, but I can'tlisten to this unjust
und uncullod for abuse."
Chairman Moxan put the question to
tho meeting on sustaining the point of
order and it was defeated. .
Instantly Sir. Cleveland rose and addressing
tfie secretary, said: "I request
that you drop my name from the roll of
membership of this conference. 1 do
not care to he a member of any body
that refuses to sustain any decent point
of order."
Then taking his lmt, he left tho hall
and Mr. Stoddard finished his address.
A MIXTURE OP EMOTIONS
Among the OUlcer* of tho First Regiment
Ohio National Guard.
Cincinnati, Juno t2.?1There is a mixture
of emotions among the otlicers of
tho First Hegimont, Ohio National
Guard, caused by the report of a court
of inquiry made at Columbus to-day.
Tlie court was organized to investigate
charges made by Captain Beclit against
Colonel Smith. Tho court finds such a
state of tilings in tlio regiment that ill
the opinion of the court tho only remedy
is to request the resignation of tho
otllcors, one nnd all, and order a new
election. Officers against whom no
charges vero mado are indignant at
being required to resign. Colonel Smith
will call a mooting of tho officers to consult
upon tho situation.

RAIDED THE ITALIANS.
A Bloody Riot at a Labor Camp

Cause of It?A Serious Situation at
| tho Cuinj).
St. I/xtis, Juno 22.?A. party of Italiau
laborers employed on tho new wkter
works at tho chain of roots some distance
up tho rivor reached tho city yesterday
and rcportod that a reign of terror
existed at that point. It appears
that there arc two factions employed at
tho works, 0110 of which has n man
named Jfentinia at iln head, whiJo the
other is led by Juan Jluntiliuo. A
deadly feud has existed botween these
| two factions, which early yesterday
morning culminated in a general conflict.
After playing cards until late the
Italians laid down lo rest Detween 1
and 2 o'clock Mantanllo heard some one
going through his clothes and asked
who it was. A hand was placed on his
face and n voico whispered in Italian for
him to keop quiet. At that very moment
somu one stabbed him in tho
right side, indicting! a dangerous
wound. Later tho Mnntalino crowd
was warned to leave the camp, or they
would bo killed. Mnntnlino and his
party immediately left and came to St.
Lotus, where tho injured man's wound
" no /Imoo/wJ 'J'liii n/ilirui nfraa+jii) ??
number of Italians last uight, and an
investigation is being held.
A LATER ACCOUNT.
A later dispatch says: A raco riot between
laborers employed by Contractor
Workloy, at Ileiaan's cauip, at the
Chain of Rocks, a point about flvo miles
up tho river, where thu now water
works arc boing constructed, occurred
between 1 and 2 o'clock Sunday morning,
in which one Italian was dangerously
stabbed, twenty-two of his fellow
countrymen driven from the camp,
their valuables and money confiscated
by tho gang of American and other
laborers, making thu attack, and a raco
panic inaugurated. Tho riot was primarily
caused by (lie admittance in
camp of a lot of Italian laborers and the
report that Contractor Workloy had
gono to Chicago for lnoro.
All Saturday a feeling of revolt against
tho employment of Italian laborers had
boen gaining in strength and bitterness.
As soon as the laborers wore paid off in
the evening, they congregated as usual
at a saloon iust outside tho city limits,
whero bad whisky is dealt out to the
men who pass the time in gambling
away their nard earned money. About
4 o'clock Sunday morning tho eambling
party broke upi and tho sixty or moro
men, crazy chunk, started for their
sleeping quarters. ??
RAIDED THE DAGOS.
On the way over a man named William
P. Blair, it is alleged, sprang tho
idea of "driving out tho dagos." It
took liko wild lire, and with muttered
curses against tho Italians, the drunken
mob hurried toward tho camp. "D?n
tho dagos." This was the cry with
which tho attack was Begun on tho
sleeping Italians. Tho drunken crowd
sprang into tho tent amidst tho foreigners,
armed with sticks, clulis,
knives and whatever clso they could
lay their hands on. Tho fight did not
last long. Tho Italians were at too great
disadvantage, and alter a brief resistance
they lied in terror, leaving behind
all their belongings.
Thoy carried awav one of their comrades,
named Catmizo Francisco, dangerously
wounded. Tho Italians niado
their way to this city, where thoy reported
tno matter to the police. At tho
camp their departure was followed by
ascencof pillugo. Thcirvalises,bundles
and packages were broken open and tho
contents taken possession of.
4KJIE8TO MADE.
The police at once began a rigld'lnvcstigatlon
anil tho following arrests
were mado: Edward Manley, John H.
Jones, Micliael Cassell, William It.
Blair, William 0. Brooks, Fred 1/mder
and John Slilllcr. These men profess
ignorance of tlio attack on the Italians,
and Ray they were awakened by a commotion
and inorcly aided iii driving
from camp the disturbers of their
slumbors. One of the assuulted party,
however, lias identified two of tho men
arrested.
" Tho Italian Consul, Dominlco Ginnochio,
is indignant over the attack on
his countrymen and will doubtless enter
into a preliminary correspondence
w ith his government on tho subject. He
has demanded of thu Chief of l'olice
protection for the Italians, and also an
immediate official investigation of tlio

two of Great Britain, and a fifth member
to be selected by the first four.
The United States forbids any authorised
person to be upon a reserved tract
without authority and it is thereforo
necessary for the .British government
to obtain the consent of this government
before agents can land on the

serve as representatives of the British
government upon the expert commission
which the two nations aro bound
to send to Alaska this Summer, but It
is altogether improbable they will bo

to act judicially in a matter where they
had formerly acted as partisan experts.

SENSATIONAL SUIT
Uocun By rornell'i Privnto Secretary
Agninst the Cork Herald,
cork, June Z?.?mo ncuuu lor uuux
brought by Mr. Henry Campbell, M. P.
for South Fermanagh, and privato secretary
to Mr. Farnell, against the Cork
Herald for stating that while other members
of Parliament were attending to
their duties, ho, Mr. Campbell, was hiring
houses for immoral purposes for
Mr. Farnoll, was cymmonced to-day.
The suit attracts considerable interest
bere from tho fact that it was expected
that some lively testimony would be
extracted from tlieso witnesses. Mr.
Cttuipboll, during tho early stoges of
tho day's proceedings, made
statements to tho cffiSct that ho had
never in any way interested himself in
or performed any duties in connection
with Mr. Parnell b private affairs. Asked
why he did not at an earlier date investigate
the charges brought by tho Cork
Iferald, Mr. Campbell replied that his
delay in action was caused by tho fact
that thero wore at that timo so many
false statements dying about that
which is popularly referred to as tho

April 2a. When within 200 Yards of
tho insurgent shin the Comlell fired
two tArpedoos, at a aistanco ot 100 yurds,
which ulso went wide of the mark. For
nearly an hour the vessels kept up on
incessant cnnnonnado without using
any more torpedoes, and tho government
vessels got the worst of it. Curing
this period tho insurgent transport.
Aconcagua entered tho harbor and-joined
in tho light. It looked as if tho two
torpedo boats would be defeated, when
finally tho Lynch made a rush for tho
Kncufada. When 40 yards distant sho
fired a torpedo which* struch the insurgent
ship amidships. A terrible ex
plosion followed, and tho Escahida immediately
began to sink, but her guns
kept on tiring, and one of the last shots
domolished the Lynch's smokestack.
At least five or six shots were fired from
tho vessel after the torpedo struck her.
Tho officers attempted to got oilt tho
boats, but in five minutes tho ship sank
and 171 of tho crow wore drowned.
The Condell and Lynch next attacked
tho AcQncagnn, when the Imperial?,
which was stationed outsfde, signalled
the approach of another war ship and
the torpedo boats immediately steamed
out of the harbor and made preparations
to attack tho now arrival. She
proved to bo H. Jf. S. Warsi?site, bnt ths
Ccmdell did not discover it and fired a
gun to call tho stranger to account. Tlid
Condell soon discovered tho mistake
and put about with the Lynch and proceeded
to Valparaiso for repairs. "Tho
