Recent Riots
SHENANDOAH Pa Aug 4 It was
stated thia evening that several for
eigners will be placed under arrest to
morrow morning on a charge of taking
part In the rioting at the Eighth Regi
ment camp Saturday night
General Gobln announced this even
ing that the first practice march of the

made publU
In anticipation of another attack this
evening the guard of the Eighth Regi
ment has been strengthened AH the
ixntrlos have been instructed to shoot
to kill In case they are molested in any
nay
Tonight a prominent operator said
that no effort will be made to work any
of the mines at present He refused to
py whether any of the striisers had in
formed any of the companies of their
willingness to return to work
Fully 1200 people attended the funeral

General Gobln prepared for possible
disturbances by stationing a company ot
cldlcrs hero and there along Ihp road to
tho cemetery The strikers lined the
eireels as the funeral procession passed
tut there was not the slightest attempt
at any disturbance and many raised
their hats respectfully as the hearrc
passed
The attitude of the striking foreigners
Is much different from that manifested
when the troops were In the town dur
ing the strike of 1900 Then the strik
ers became orderly and peaceable at
ouzc l d from that time on there was
so more trouble at Shenandoah
On this occasion the English-speaking
agitators among the strikers have
been telling them that thn soldiers were
only tin soldiers and that they were
cot woith heeding This combined with
the sullen temper of the strikers has
Inspired the foreigners to a defiant in
solent nttltude which during the past
twenty four hours has hovered on the

Continues to Probe Into the Identity of
Those Taking Part in the Leesburg
Tragedy Local People Assert There
Will Be No Prosecution
Citizens of Leesburg and others who
participated in the lynching of Charles
Craven the negro who is supposed to
have murdered William II Wilson of
Fairfax count Va are beginning to
realize the seriousness ot the affair and
the probabilities are that before night
fall more trouble will ensue as a result
of the people taking the law Into their
own hands
The Indications are that some time to
Jay the jury appointed by Coroner H
O Claggett to hold an Inquest over the
lemans of Craven will bring in a ver
dict in which a number of residents of
Fiirfa c Loudoun and other counties ad
joining the scene of the ljnchlng will
Le named as the parties responsible for
tbe death of the negro
Since the ljnching last Thursday the
town has been In a turmoil and every
one is apprehtnsive of the consequences
While the negros body was still hang
ing o the tree Coroner Claggett ap
pointed a Jury of six reputable citizens
of Loudoun county to Investigate the
matter Directions were given that the
body be interred in the public burying
ground wherein stood the tree to which
tbe man was hanged An adjournment
was then taken by the Jury until Friday
morning
Farce Grows Serious
It might be said that the investiga
tion as started was in the nature of a
farce but it has been so thorough and
far reaching that ten or twelve men
have been named by witnesses as having
been implicated in the tragedy
Scott Bradley who was locked uo on
Thursday night charged with being
drunk and disorderly was recognized bj
cveral witnesses as having been at the
forefront of the Ij nchlng He is still
in the tolls Harry Nipple of Frederick
Md Is in the custody of Maryland of

one cf the men who led Craven from the
Jail while a young man named Summers
Is sald to have carried the rope with

Half a dozen other men will probably

HAVANA Aug 4 The senate today
discussed a bill empowering the execu

minimum price of SO The maximum In-
tercst will be 5 per cent
The loan is redeemable in thiry years
The republic will have the right to take
up the bonds whenever it pleases The
proceeds will be applied to the assist
ance of the sugar growers and to aid
other agricultural Interests Tho money
is to be paid to the sugar planters at
the rate of o0 cents for ery 100 ar
robas of cane ground In 1302
It Is to be repaid to me state in in
stallments next year The executive 1
authorized to offer the customs receipts
as security for repayment of the cap
ital and interest As a further guar
antee that the money will be received t
meet this additional expenditure the
executive is authorized to Increase the
duties on certain articles to be speci
fied
Executive Given Power
The executive is also empowered to
raise within a term of six months a loan
of 3000CCO under the same conditions
as to time price of Issue and Interest
Four million bonds ot this issue will be
used to take up tbe first loan and 23
000000 will be used to pay the army
The balance will be used to pay other
debts of the revolution according to tho
first transity disposition of the- constitu
tion Before the end of the session the
congress will vote tho necessary Income
to provide a sinking fund and for the
Interest of tbe loan in accordance with
article 59 of the constitution and clause
2 of the Piatt law
The bill was approved with the ex
ception of two small clauses at the end
and that part of It referring to raising
the tariffs on certain articles and ap
plying the proceeds to meet the cost
of the loan
It Is claimed mat a majority ot the
senate is opposed to a bid loan but
forced by public opinion it agreed upon
the bill above referred to
v Army Must Be Paid
Scnor Sangulliy the principal sup
porter of the bill said it was most im
portant to pay tbe army and to glvo
assistance to the sugar planters These
were the two most Important matters
before the government
He referred to the Jamaica planters
who were asking for annexation to the
United States and said that Cuba should
prevent her planters from doing tho
same He added that the army might
get tired waiting of Its money The
pajment of the wa3 more Impor
tant than reciprocity
Some say that the plan outlined above
is really one to shell e the payment of
the bv nlowing the first loan to
be raided and leaving the other to drag
along Indefinitely
A similar plan was presented In the
house of representatives where it is
cliimed it has a majority This plan
also divides the loan into two parts one
of jOOOOOO nnd the other of 30000000
to be raised separately The house at
first refused to entertain any plan but
one to raise all the money at once
