This was the first day sinse the
fever appeared here in which there
was any apparent depression in the
community, and there were two rea
sons for it. One was the death of
Airchbishop Chappelle, who succumbed
to ah attack of the prevailing illness,
and the other was the general closing
of stores in accordance with the
mayor's proclamation urging every
body in the city to devote the day to
a general home cleaning-up. While
the death of the
is deplored because of the loss which
the community sustains, it is also re
gretted because of the effect It will
have upon the outside world. It is
feared that it will cause the belief to
spread that conditions here are real
ly much worse than they are.
The body of Archbishop Chappelle
was transferred from his residence at
Esplanade avenue to St. John's cathe

STRIKERS ARE RIOTOUS
New York Police Have Hard- Fights
New York, Aug. 11.—Frequent out
breaks of rioting, calling for drastic
action by the police, marked the
course of the strike of the Hebrew
bakers on the East side yesterday. In
an attack on a bakery in Allen street
fifty rioters broke into the place,
completely wrecked it, and upset bar
rels of flour and dough in the-street.
The police reserves had to be called
out before the rioters could be dis
persed. A committee of 100 sent
from strike headquarters last night
to a bakery in Orchard street to in
duce non-union workmen to quit, at
tacked the shop, hearing of which,
hundreds of strikers rushed from the
meeting to the scene of conflict. One
policeman who attempted to defend
the non-union men, was severely
beaten, but held his ground until res
cued. The patrol wagon, bringing a
squad of reserves, was furiously as
sailed by the mob, who stopped the
horses and even dragged some of the
men from their seats. The rest quick
ly alighted and charged the mob
through a rain of bottles and bricks
that poured from roofs and windows.
After ten minutes' hard fighting the
mob was dispersed and two men, both
severely injured, were arrested. The
shop in which the fighting began was

Cortelyou to Issue New Form of Pos
tal Money Order.
Washington, Aug. 11.—Before leav
ing for his vacation, Postmaster Gen
eral Cortelyou directed the issuance
of a new form of money order which,
it is believed, will be proof against
forgers. The department has been
greatly annoyed by the operations of
persons whp purchase orders for
small amounts and raise them, pass
ing them upon merchants after office
hours. Although the direct loss falls
entirely on those who accept the or
ders, there has been a heavy indirect
expense involved in' the pursuit, ar
rest and conviction of the offenders.
The form adopted will be issued as
soon as the new plates can be pre
pared and other necessary prelim
inaries in the way of
can be made.
