Hopeful of Settlement Soon.
CHICAGO, Nov. 120. — Despite the
united efforts of Mayor Carter 11. Har
rison and the nldermanic mediation
committee lo bring about a peaceable
adjustment of the Chicago City rail
road strike there is little change In the
situation. Some progress was made,
but nothing definite was accomplished.
As to the prospects of a settlement
Mayor Harrison said:
“Well, I am more hopeful than I was
after our conference, when the outlook
was decidedly gloomy. Both shies
seem willing to continue negotiations,
and while there is life there is hope.”
A serious riot occurred at Thirty
eighth street and Wentworth avenue,
which was quelled by the vigorous
WUIlv Ul lin* juMirr. xnr,i
polled to charge the mob and use their
clubs freely. The trouble commenced
when a wrecking wagon manned by a
nonunion crew amly guarded by six
special policemen pass'll Thirty-sev
enth street. A crowd quickly gath
ered and followed it. When Thirty
eighth street was reached 200 men
were around the wagon, which they
were threatening to destroy and offer
ing violence to the men. Just in the
nick of time two cars carrying eighteen
regular policemen came up. Sts'* aft
er the wagon and cars carrying \
fleers had left Thirty-eighth strec\
cars came tip from the opposite <e
tloti. As they were crossing Thirty
eighth street the mob let fly a shower
of stones, demolishing tlie car windows
and causing four passengers on the
first car to flee for their lives. The
mob then swarmed upon the cars and
had begun to bent the train crows when
the two cars with the policemen and
the crew of the wrecking wagon came
hurrying back. The mol), which had
greatly increased by tills time, was in
an ugly temper and refused to move.
Tile police drew tbelr revolvers and
clubs and charged at once. The mob
used stones and epithets, while tlie po
lice swung their clubs with vigor.
There was a warm light which lasted
about two minutes, and then the mob
broke and fled In all directions. A
number of those engaged in the rioting
were arrested.

The Theatres.
If llic Now Yokr critics are to be be
lieved, another tremendous hit has been
s. ored at that home of big productl'in.
| the Broadway Theatre, New York. This
time it ii that incomparable artist,
FritxiSchaff, in a bright new comic opera
called “Babclte”. The eiitios unan
imous in the opinion that Miss Solicit' is
the one rial sensational success of the
season and declare with enthusiasm that
no such lir*t night has been seen in New
York in many years.

Charles 1J. Dillingham lured Miss SchefT
from the Metropolitan Opera House,
wh .re for three years she was the pet of
i lu patrons of grand opera, and instated
li ;r at the head of a largo company to
pro sent, a new romantic comic opera by
Victor Ileibert and Harry B. Smith.
Tlrs opera “Babetto” was presented in
New York for the first time on Mon bay
nii'li! and made an instant triumuh wi*h
public and critics. The Sun said “the at
tractions of “Babette” are many and
ciptivatiug.” Tlio world said ‘Fritzi
Sjbcft' sang like one possessed.” The
American said “the audience arose to
their feet shouting bravos, aud cheering.”
The News said “Fritzi Schell” and “Ba
b_*ttc” nredestined to a long and prosper
ous run-on Broadway”.
Mr. Dillingham has surrounded Miss
Schell with a com| any of unique dis
