WARM FOUND GUILTY Jury Return Verdict of MnnsliuiRhter itKlntmt Soldier Murdered M-Yenr-Old filrl Now York, May 1. Comparatively llttlo bloodshed mnrked radical celebrations In lhe United States of International lnbor day. Tho most serious rioting occurred In Cleveland, where one man was killed nnd mora than 100 persons, Including 11 policemen, wero Injured. Next In Im Jiortnnco was a battle between tho polloo Jmd paradere In Boston, during wnicn two patrol men -were shot and many ar rests made. Tho riot call wan sounded In Chicago when radicals attemntcd to hold a tinrado which had been forbidden. Sev eral ncrsons were arrested, but thcro Wero no casualties. Soldiers and Bailors In this city broke lip several meetings at which ultra-llb-ral sentiments woro expressed and also raided the olllces of tho Call, a socialist labor newspaper. They made no attempt to wreck tho publishing plant, but de stroyed a largo quantity of socialist liter ature and roughly handled a dozen em ployes of the paper. A small army of service men tried persistently to-night to break up a meeting at Madison Square Garden, but wero' beaten off by 1,300 patrolmen mobilized around the building. Scores of men In uniform were beaten with night sticks. Tied plans for tho most gruesome May day tragedy In history miscarried be-, cause of the accidental discovery of tho bomb plot which had nation-wide rami fications. None of the score and moro of Infernal machines entrusted to the malls has claimed its intended victim. Explosive experts contend that tho bombs were powerful enough to blow a man to pieces, but only one person has been seriously injured by the deadly de vices. That was a negro maid em ployed by former Senator Hardwlck. Thrco moro dynamite filled packages were found In the malls to-day. These tvero addressed to Senator Overman, who conducted the Senate Investigation Into disloyalty; to Senator AVllliam H. King of Ctah and to Frank IC. Knebecker of Salt Lako City, assistant attorr.ty gcnernl, who was a special prosecutor iuring the I. W. W. trial In Chicago. Another addressed to Senator Sraoot of Utah Is known to have lieen mailed, but aa not been traced. Now York apparently was the center of iho plot, but no arrests havo been mado Ihus far, although scores of agents of lhe department of Justice, postotllce in spectors and detectives have scoured tho rlty for sumo promising claw. Tho haunt of reds and radicals have been carefully watched, but the chief hope of success in tho chase rests in the pos sibility of finding on tho bombs finger printa which may correspond with thoso of anarchists and radicals who have been arrested at some time or other.

"Are you rcrtnln you havo rendered a Just verdict?" asked County Clerk G. C. Stevens. "Wo certainly are," re plied Foreman Wood. Former State's Attorney W. R.

Austin, Warm's official counsel, said that they did not want this motion acted upon at the present time ns they desired to file some motions In the case, especially for arrest of Judgment on tho evidence.' Mr. McFeetcrs said they had no objections to this, but asked that they bo notified of tho tlmo fixed ns both he and It. E. Brown, his nssoclate, ex pected to be busy at least a part of next week. There was no action on the motion. Warm was taken back to the county Jail to await sentence. With Judge Stanley C.

PARIS SO M ROTS Mobs Attack and Police with Soldiers Resist Much Blood Is Shed Washington, May 1. Belief was ex pressed by postnfflce officials to-night that most, if not all of tho bombs mailed from New York as part of an anarchist tlay day plot ugalnst tho lives of public men had been found. Checking of reports from postal in spectors hi various parts of the country showed only one Infernal machine, ad dressed to Senator Leo S. Overman of North Carolina, got through during tho past 24 hours although press dispatches said two bombs, addressed to Senator William II. King of Utah and Frank K. Nebeker, an attorney, had been Inter cepted in Salt Lako City postofflco. Tho department to-night had received no re port from Salt Lako City. Tho alertness of a postal clerk at Salisbury S. C, Senator Overman's home town, prevented tho delivery of tho ma chine to the senator. The motive was thought to be the fact that as chairman of the Senate committeo Investigating anti-American activities and disloyal propaganda. Senator Overman had won the enmity of the radical element. Unusual precautions were taken In Washington to-day to protect cabinet members and court officials from bomb at tacks. There wero similar precautions In other cities and meanwhllo the entire pos tal service was working and watching to pick up stray infernal machines, lying about llko so many floating mines, but apparently dangerous only to those per eons with curiosity enougn to break the seals. Reports from inspectors nt Now York and Atlanta, Ga., gave no Information not already revealed In press despatches. Officials here wero greatly relieved upon learning late to-day that thcro was no foundation for reports of the seizure of 14 bombs In postofflces along tho Pacific coast. All divisional Inspectors It wan stated, had been Instructed to forward prompt roports of bomb finds and while j. come may liavo been delayed, there was a Jmore hopeful feeling that tho greatest danger was over and that any bombs still In tho malls would fall Into the hands of operatives, detailed to get them.

JURY GETS WARM CASE Newly DUcovered Evidence In Kxclnd ed by Judge Wilson fit. Albans, May 1. Tho caso of State vs. Robert Wnrm for tho alleged murder of Jennie Hemmlngway, 14 years old. In this city August 12, 1317, went to the Jury in Franklin county court at 2:40 o'clock this afternoon. Judge Stanley C. Wilson delivered his charge when court came In at two o'clock and ap pointed B. II, Wood of Georgia foreman. Court was delayed an hour In opening this morning by nn attempt of counsel for tho respondent to Introduce somo newly-discovered evidence. After con ference on tho matter Judge Wilson ruled that U lirau'.d net bo admitted, saying that even had It been presented during the regular course of the trial It would not have been admissible, aa It was too disconnected to be relevant to the case, The proceedings took place In the Judges' room and not In open court. The matter brought to tho attention of the court was an affidavit from Stephen Young of Alburg, a young man who In August, 1917, was on tho Van Warner farm three-quarters of a mile northwest of the placo where Jcnnlu Hemming way's body was found, On the Warner farm was a cornfield and on tho Sunday night In question the corn wns stand Ing in proper order. Monday when Mr. Warner went to tho field to look for a monkey wrench he had left there ho found automobile tracks, tho tracks of several people, tho corn badly broken down and an empty cigarette case. The iudies .at tho edgo of the field wero Paris, May 1. (By the Associated Press), Serious disorders occurred to-day In Paris on the occasion of the celebration of "May day." French blood flowed in the streets of Paris and weapons that so lately had been used against the foe were turned against friends, brothers and sis, ters. It is providential indeed that numerous deaths did not follow the attacks and counter attacks by the mobs on the one hand and the police and cavalry on tho other. Particular efforts wero mado by tho mobs to invade the Place Do La Con corde and reach the Chamber of Deputies and tho war ministry where demonstra tions had been planned. It was In these attempts that the casualties occuricd. "Long live the I'oilu!" tho crowd shouted at the Madolelno and in the Place De La Concorde us they surged towaid the soldiers and with pale, drawn faces the infantry withdrew and allowed the inob to reach the Place Do La Concorde against a wall of pitiless policemen and determined cavalry. Then shotn rang out. One policemen fell moaning, slightly wounded, but trembling with fear. The cavalry charged, and along the Hue Roynlo tho mob wavered back toward tho Madeleine church. Here and there a man or woman staggered, fell and remained motionless hordes trampling eight or ten outstretched forms littering the street from the Ruo St. Honore to the Madeleine church. Ono policeman said to the Associated Press correspondent as shots wero hoard a hundred yards distant: "They are fir ing at us, and I havo a gun (producing a loaded weapon from his coat pocket) But I cannot fire upon my brothers." ' Others were less scrupulous, however, and the behavior of some of the police men Beemed like an Invitation to rioting. One big policeman knocked down a muti lated war veteran In sight of the corro spondent, who reproved him mildly. Tho pollcemnn enraged, hissed, "You shut up. You will never again see America s shore unless you mind your own businoss." Finding that tho attempts to reach tho Chamber of Deputies and tho war mln Isfry were futile speakers begged tho crowd to turn to the Places Do La Re- publlque and De La Bastllo. The crowd obeyed, singing tho "Marseillaise," At tho Place Do La Republlque, the most populous quarter In Paris, nil accesses to tho squares wero strongly guarded, cavalry charging repeatedly and tho firemen using their hose In spraying tho crowds, already wet from the rain, until Ingenuous youngsters turned off the water of the nearest hydrant and leaving tho useless hose In tho hands of bewildered firemen. Here a blind soldier wearing the war cross with two palms entered a stalled automobile. The crowd was silenced and tho soldier delivered a speech. "We are the weakest," he said. "Let us not shed French blood. I cannot see you, but I feel that you are honest working men and women. Let us dis perse. "Don't mind tho police The soidiors wont hurt you. I'm one of them and for 15 months I havo been fighting for you. I have lost my Bight, but am not sorry, for it has served my country and youraelveu. But I would regret eternally If French blood flowed to-day," The crowd followed the blind soldier, who was borne on the shoulders of the enthusiastic crowd. who attempted to parado after a May day meeting. Two men who were arrested are In a hospital and others were treated by physicians before being placed In colls. Early to-night 112 arrests had been mado, 1G being women, and the police were combing tho section for groups which were raid to bo planning further demonstrations. Following n meeting In Uie Dudley street Opera house, the radicals filed Into the street carrying red flags, wearing red buttons and flaunting rndlcal literature. A number of women woro red dresses. Leaders could not produco a parado per mit nnd policemen ordered them to disperse. Ho was greeted with hoots and pushed aside. Other officers remonstrated with the crowd but It continued to surgo up tho street. Police reserves wero called and as a wagon approached shots wero fired at It. A patrolman was hit. Tho police fired Into the air not wishing to hit bystanders. Radicals defied police, who arrived In large numbers. Moro shots were fired stones were hurled and the police waded Into the rioters, swinging their clubs on radicals heads and shoulders. Tho crowd wns gavo and even women march ers fought with tho police. The pollco were outnumbered and sailors and civil ians went to tbolr assistance. For several minutes a serious street battle was waged. The police succeeded In breaking up tho crowd and began taking nut prison ers. These were loaded Into patrol wagons and taken to station houses. Tlin policemen held their guns to the radicals, who threatened to rescue tho prisoners. Ono officer held a gun on five men nnd said he would shoot the first ono who attempted to escape. The iwllcemen ordered civilians with automobiles to help them carry off the prisoners. The radicals slashed the tires of one machine, but Its driver pulled out for tho station house on flat tires. Superintendent of Police Crowley be came alarmed and notified the ndjirtant general's department that he might havo to call on the State guard for help. An olllcer from 'the adjutant-general's office wont to Dudley street nnd found that tho police had tho rioters subdued. Of those arrested 10 women wero charged with inciting to riot; 61 men with rioting; 32 men with taking part In an affray or with assault. Wants Her Freedom Montpoller, May 1.

An effort was made during the noon hour to get a set tlement of the caso, but the petitioner objected, saying that tho only reason she had lived with her husband ns long as she did was that the children might bo brought up and now that they wero old enough to look after themselves there was no reason why Bho should llvo with the man.
