The lynchers. having finished their work. had cvi;lently scatterel in all directions. as the marks of fresh hoof prints were found on all tle streets leading from the place where the bodt was found. As soon as the mob bad left the jail pursuit was in-tituted by the sheriff and jallor and an olmeer whom they had met. but tlew went tiue south on Third street and missed their men. On Walnut street near the jail a three-f,urths Inch rope twenty feet In length was found. and on Third street, between Spruce and Pine. the coat of the negro, torn to tatters from contact with the frosen ground. Fitz Maurice ran to the nearest telephone and cave a general alarm to the tilice. but long ere any offices had reachd Prospect street Wood" was dead and the lynchers had dispersed. Tr LTv.cnaas OCsTurTIy . Fitz Maurice declares that the men were all trom toe country as was evu:enced by the fact that all were mounted and were dressed in the manner affected by farmers. The hamnmers used were large sledigee aeh as are employed in heavy blacksmithing and quarrying. From the fact that it was rumored yesterday that men in ScBmeehevllle were bent upon a lynching here, it is supposed that the mob was organized in that section. It is not likely however, that any strong efforts will be made to bring the men to justice-if ineh It ean be called-for evey one here thinks that the brute met the death that he deserved. During the fore part of the evening City Marshal Walters and Offieer Powell were at the jail with a uumtwr of others, who remain ed until quite a late hour. and everything being quiet, left for their homes fearing no trouble. Officer Powell was quite sure that the people from the country, who were slow to arouse, would certainly take Wood from the jail and hang him. Succeeding events proved that he was correct in his views. This is the first lvnching that has ever taken place frin the county jail and the second in the count. for the oast twenty years. Queat and Deteramined. New Yonx, Jan. 2--Business on the river front this naloing was almost completely paralysed aE with the exception of a small amount of t dght being moved by green hands on oa oru two piers, very little work was done on tk, docks of the principal steam ship companies. The strikers are confident that they will succeed. The next move will be to get the pilots on the ocean steamer serv Ice to come out. They are organized and should the order go out for them to quit work the striker hope to prevent all trans-Atlantic steamers from sailing In or out of this port. This the union men claim will compel the steamehip companies to come to terms. Only one steamer the Brittanie of the White Star line, cold sail this morning. The oth r were either unable to load coal or their car goes. Several announced, however, that they wioui be able to get away to-morrow. Every thing was quiet at all of the docks all morn ing, and as the striers as a general thing staved at home no rotus outbreak was an ticipated. A unloo pmeentative sai the trike was one of the quietest ever knows. The union was reeivig reports from all pints that the strikLe was pueressig favorahly. A conferene o the union was held this morning. They now demand 40 cents per hour an ocea ste s for day work and 0 cents for night work. Pollee SuperIntendent Gary established an other relief depot on North river front to-day, and a suad o about fifty men were stationed them. Other preparations were kept quiet. Upto noon reports had been reeieved that ev rything was quiet, though the indications were that the strike was spreading. JdlUnr the inditions t-nlght, 1l, Mg coal handlers, etc., will be est on a strike to-ma.row, while the freight handlers who unload ears at the railroad docks ympathl withl the strikers, and will also pbbly qut wmork.

One of the leaders of the strike, when asked as to the position of ffairs to-day, said: "The outlook ir more threatening to-day than at ay time snce the beginning of the strike Uiless a settlement Is arrived at before the end of the week there is a strong chance of the trouble extenadfag mch more rapidly. We have no doubt of or ltimate success." A Thset us a Warntng. Nw TYa. Jan. 1.-All was quiet along the decks today. A rumor in eireulation cntaited both a threat and a warnlng.

Nearly il50. 0t men will be more or less involved. They will include longshoremen, grain handlers, coal heaven, grain trimmers, bag sewers, h canal tallinen, tug boatmen, lighter men and every delsription of workingmen. If this war is .lciared no vessel will be able to leave port, it as the pilots will be drawn into the strudgle. s TheI lr interests are with the workmen and it is ý alleged that out of sympathy, if for no other reason, they will refuse to take out the ships. a A rea:lv steam-hip companies have begun to fel ti-'- effects of tlhe trouble and now that the Ssrit;k .; made generai the difficulty will be mnulch 1ree:t er. I he idea of the executive board of dl trl.ht assembly No. 49 is that only bh l general action can the demands of the men be IIenf r.ed. The Laltter has been referred to ithe general exeeutive board of Knights of La bo Ir :ad hlet with their sancuon. Twenty thousand men are now on a strike, 1s coal shovelers, iounslhoremen, freight handlers d and aien einp!ored on the river front in almost every ca;pacirvy sml the number is augmented to clu-, on 40.tkll b, strikers on the Brooklyn U and .Jers.ev .i-res.

Other la'r organizations who are de d pendent on the coal supply will be compelled to quit work. The ferry boats are serously inconvenienced on account of the lack of coal. No disturbance occurred up to noon. The strikers believe the dispute will be settled be fore the end of the third day. s The strike along the riverfront of Brooklyn also went into effect this morning. All the s men went out quietly, peaceably and deter mlaedI. Freight accumulated on the docks ready for shipment, while several vessels wre r wating to discharge cargoes. s At the Morgan company's dock, pier 6, the mea went to work this morning, as the com p.gy agreed not to handle any boycotted I Iedocinaster had bard work to keep pane with the demand, as much freight that had been delayed in consequence of the boycott a end trike is now being moved.

Ther were a number of foreigners, supposed to be Portuguese, and with deek han some eargo a was removed. In the oce of the dockmaster I It was stated that the company had got all the coal it required for use of its steamers, and ai Sso the men it needed to unload the Pequot. On the dock were about twenty men at work, but the scene was dull to that usually present ed on the arrival of a Provildence boat and when there are 0 or 400 men at work on a vessel which is usually unloaded and loaded Sgain, ready to sail again in a few hours. Sev ) eral canal boats laden with coal were laid up at the bulkheads, but there was no one to un load them. An Anchor line steamer was docked. but no attempt was made to unload her after the passengers had deberked. Both piers 20 and 21, belonging to this company. were guarded by the police. At pier 8, North river, there were vessels waiting to have their freight moved, hut no men could be procurred to do I the work. It is expected that the 'ransatlantle steam rs due out Saturday will not be able to sail on sccount of their having no means of get ting the vessel's coal supply aboard. The White Star liner Brittanic was to have left port this morning, but she was unable to get I her complement of coal and was detained. The State of Gergas. of the State line. and I the Suevla, of the Hamburg line, the Inde-s pendent. of the Florlo Rubotino line to Italy, were all deta!ned by the strike. The Gallia, - of the Cunard line, the Devonia, of the Anchor line, the La Bourgoyne for Havre, the W.
