Chicago, March L—McCormick’s reaper works resumed operations this morning, 150 men reporting for duty. Great crowds were in the vicinity of the works early in the morning, and to their presence is ascribed the fact that a larger number did not apply for work through fear or intimidation. A large force was on hand to preserve order, and arrested three or four men who were aggressive. The looked out men are to hold a mass meeting this morning near the works. In live minutes after the gates opened there were, according to Mr. McCor mick's count. 350 men at work in the va rious departments. Superintendent Averill says a number of men had re frained from returning owing to having received threatening notes last night. By to-morrow he expected the works would be in full operation. Mr. McCor mick opened the doors in person and de clared that he would not shut dow n now if he had but a dozen men to do the work Just previous to opening the gates those not intending to apply for work made a slight opposition to those about to enter the works, but dispersed pre cipitately upon a movement in their di rection of the police. After the first dis persal of men, they began assembling again in little groups in the neighboring streets. When requested to “move on” they refused, and about 20 were put into a patrol wagon and taken to the Hinman street station, where they were lined $5 each. Fifty men bad gathered in front of 10(17 Blue Island Ave nue. None were very belligerent, ex cept Stanifoft Gender, who is described as a ring-leader. He got upon a door step aud shouted in Bolish: "Now is the time to act. Every man get out bis pis tol and let us live or die for the cause.” Officer Marks was standing by. He is familiar with the Polish language, and when he heard the incendiary outburst, lie grabbed Gender and took him to the station. When searched there was a 48-calibre revolver found in Genc’er's possession. The reaper works are dis tant from the court-house live miles, but the police headquarters were kept fully advised of the situation. Chief of Police Ebersold was seen this morning, and said: “Although not ap prehensive of any serious trouble, still I am prepared for the receipt of the verv worst of news from the McCormick quarters, and from reports, 1 am con strained to believe that the day will not pass quietly by without an outbreak or disturbance of some nature. 1 have ade quate force on the ground for immediate necessities, and have arranged matters so that within an hour from the time an alarm is given I can cover the McCor mick possessions with policemen.” At 10 o’clock about 500 of the locked out men formed a procession, headed by a brass band, and started for Working men’s Hall, at the corner of Twelfth and Walker streets, to attend the meeting there. Corpus Christi Collector Sustained. Washington, March L—The Treasury Department has sustained the action of the Collector of Customs at Corpus Chris ti, in assessing duty at the rate of 10 cents per pound on certain wool im ported at Laredo and classified as wool of class 1, costing under 40 cents per pound. The importer appealed from the deci sion. He claimed that the wool in ques tion was carpet wool, or wool of the third class, valued at less than 12 cents per pound, and dutiable at the rate of -s cents per pound. Examination showed it to be composed of a very poor quality of Mexican wool, mived with tirst-class or merino wool, the proportion of me rino wool being 24 per cent. While the presence of wool .of the first-class ren ders the importation liable to the duty assessed, it is believed to be unjust to assess that rate on such poor material. The Department decides that tqe wool in the present mixed condition is liable to duty at the rate assessed, but authori zes the Collector to have importations of this charter sorted for the purpose of correct classification and to assess the duty on respective quantities of wool of the several classet, which course may be followed in the preseat case, provided the merchandiso remains in the custody of the collector. Recorder's Court. W. H. Loeden, insulting language, dismissed. Jesus Delgado, drunk and disorderly, fined $5. G. P. Karnes, drunk, $5. W. J. Thomas, drunk, $5. Paul Martin, vagrant, $lO or 30 days. Walks About Town. To look at the varions fellow-beings we meet in the streets is an interesting study. Queer people some of them are. Some are proud of their clothes, while some shutlie along in tatters. Some are cheerful, others are melancholy. Some have a light and happy step, others plod on as if marching to the grave. What a good think it would betogive each of tbe sad and weary ones a bottle of Brown’s Iron Bitters! How it would nerve them up and make them know the blessing of hearty health! Mr. Schutt, of Kiel, Wis., says : “Brown’s Iron Bit tars cured me of general ill health.” —The only cigarettes which Jo not (tick to the lips are Opera Puffs. A WATERY GRAVE. A Swiss Immigrant, Qottheb Brandel, Finds One. This morning after daybreak, between 6 and 7 o'clock, a boy named Kline, who is employed by County Assessor D. M. Poor at his rancli four miles south of the city, on coming to the city, discovered the body of a dead man, lying face downward in the water of the San Pedro creek at the race track or Nogal itos crossing on South Flores street. The boy did not touch the remains, but told Antonio Esquivel, an assistant to Pound master Cassiano, and they visited the spot. The coroner, Justice J. C. Craw ford. was informed immediately by Offi cer Martinez and summoned a jury nod viewed tbe remains. Tbe iurv found a young man of 24 or 25 years of age, of decidedly German or Swiss features, heavy set frame, low stature, dressed in common working clothes, white shirt, a gold collar button and shirt stud, lying at the edge of tbe creek bank, where a Mr. Hamilton, a passer-bye, had carried the body from the water. A sliver case Swiss watch, silver chain and watch key,' with jeweled head, a pocket memorandum book and several letters, a pencil, a purse containing $1.30 in sliver were found on the remains, which were taken In charge of by tbe jury. The body was ordered taken care of by Justice Crawford, and with the personal effects of the dead man the jury returned to the city and examined the papers of the dead man. A railway ticket, second class, evi dently used by a foreign railway com pany, was drst examined, which dis closed the name of tbe dead man to be Gottlieb Brandel, from Wadenseil, Switzerland. Letters from bis mother, dated from Norgan, and from another not his mother evidently, dated from the same town, which expressed for him the tenderest affection and truest love. The writer hoped soon to be with him, snd never would be separated from him again. Two congratulator}- birth-day cards were found inscribed to "My love Gottlieb,” evidently sent by his young brothers or sisters,'a photograph, dis closing a group; a pretty girl of 1G or 17 years, and two boys, evidently his brothers and sisters; a letter full of kind words and loving messages from from his old mother, and letters evidently sent to him addressed to an other person for him, were found one addressed to John Bosshcrdt, No. 201 Commerce street, and another to Mrs. B. E. Horton, America. An account of tbe inclement . weather, and the trouble to procure tbe witnesses living near the spot where the corpse was found, the inquest was adjourned after inspecting those effects until to morrow morning at 10 o'clock. A Light reporter visited Mr. Boss hardt’s saloon at No. 201 Commerce street this mornlngand learned from Mr. Robert Hunziker, the barkeeper and a well-known Switzer, that Gottlieb Bran del was well-known by him and was a countryman of bis. He said be. Gott lieb, had been iu this country about one year, and had worked for a farmer liv ing about 15 miles from San Antonio. Lately however, Gottlieb told him he had had seme trouble with bis(mployer and had quit and was then looking for work. The waiter boy at this saloon says the deceased was in the saloon last night between 7 and 8 o'clock and took a glass of beer for which he paid 5 cents out of his pocket. He then drank another glass and gave the boy 50 cents and received 45 cents change. He complained of being sick and said he did not feel well and had been sick for two weeks. He had been steadily losing flesh and was not as heavy as he had been, t hat is the last time he was seen in the saloon. His watch, a common Swiss watch, had stopped at 2:55, bni was not run down, and bad evidently been stopped by its immersion in the water, probably at that hour this morning. While the man was evidently downhearted and discouraged and may have committed suicide, tbe evidence of the young men at tbe saloon may go to prove he was 111, and having fallen intothe water, was unable to he'p him.
