morning service John Alexander Dowie
announced to his followers another
crusade. He told his host to return
to Zion City and to save their money
against the expenses of another cru
sade, because "the good work of
spreading the restoration message
iwras going to be carried far and wide."
James M. Peters, in charge of the

ttat the departure would be made

gramme, the special trains returning
as they came.

Score.of Policemen and Many People
Are Wounded.
Paris, Oct.. 30.A serious riot oc
curred during the day in front of the
Bourse de Travail (labor exchange),
in the work.ngmen's district, In which
a score of policemen and a dozen riot
ers were seriously wounded and many
others were slightly injured.^ Numer
ous arrests were made. The trouble
followed a meeting of 6,000 persons,
who protested against the establish
ment of a municipal employment bu
reau. The authorities, in anticipation
of disorders, had occupied the Place
de la Republique and the nearby
streets with a strong force of military
and police. In the Bourse de Travail
were the organizations of the bakers,
employes of cafes and grocers. The
speakers made inflammatory speeches,
crying: "Down with the employment
officers." The crowd thereupon rushed
from the building and about 2,000
swept into the Rue du Chateau, -where
a formidable barrier of police had
been drawn up. The remainder crowd
ed to the Place de la Republique and
the Boulevard Magenta, singing revo
lutionary songs. A lieutenant of po
lice and six men advanced for the pur
pose of arresting the singers, who re
sisted and were supported by the
crowd. A free fight followed, but the.
rioters gave way before a charge of
the police. The manifestants then en-,
tered cafes and shops, seized glasses,
tables and chairs and renewed the
struggle with the police. Another
section of the rioters also attacked
the police.
As a result of the fighting between
the police and rioters twenty-three
policemen were injured, several of
them seriously, and a number of riot
ers were wounded.
Troops Have Difficulty in Coping With
Bilbao Strikers.
Bilbao. 0"t. 30.The garrison of
Bilbao has been reinforced, but the
troops still have difficulties in coping
with the rioting strikers, who con
stantly erect new barricades as the
old ones are torn down by the soldiers.
The city presents a sorry spectacle
owing to the widespread destruction
wrought by the mobs. The rioters
used dynamite in several instances to
blow in the doors of the Jesuits'
houses and to destroy the railroad
tracks with the object of preventing
trains from entering Bilbao.
Famine prices are already being
charged for provisions. Even bread
is so scarce that loaves are selling at
4 pesetos (about 78 cents) apiece.
Six persons were killed and a hun
dred injured during Wednesday's con
flicts. Hundreds of terror stricken
people have fled from the city.
The railroad employes now threaten
to join the strikers.
Acting under orders from Madrid
the governor of Bilbao has summoned
the mine owners to a conference.
The strikers are threatening to at
tack the Galdacano dynamite factory.
A large force has been sent to pro
tect the works.

Dowie did not stick very closely to his
published subject but paid his respects
to ministers also. Concerning Rev.
Charles H. Parkhurst Dowie said:
"There's that miserable Parkhurst.
He toils over his sermons and his
hearers toil while listening to them.
I have made up my mind that Park
hurst isn't worth powder and shot.
He never in his life addressed as
many people as I address in one week.
I never heard that Dr. Parkhurst had
to get the police to keep people out
of his church as they had to do at my

not exist much longer was made dur

In the course of an unusually out
spoken editorial on the recent Alaska
boundary award the Chronicle ex
presses what it claims to be unani
mous dissatisfaction of Canadians at
the action of the British government
In the matter. The paper says:
"This Alaska episode has made it
clear that our existing relations to
the empire cannot be continued much
longer. We are even now at the part
ing of the ways.
"Our subordinate position has been
so clearly and so humiliatingly re

utterly unendurable."

I commend the latter step in particular,
because it would free Canada from

I with the United States on account of
its European connection and at the
same time would secure for the Do
minion the benefit of the protection of
the Monroe doctrine.

St. Petersburg, Oct. 30.An official
dispatch from Mukden, Manchuria,
A detachment of Russian troops
has entered the town and reoccupted

consequence-of the weakness displayed
by the Chinese authorities, who do
not fulfill their promises, and owing"
to general ferment prevailing here.

Russian and French Ministers of For
eign Affairs.
Paris, Oct. :0.Th Russian foreign
minister. Count Lamsdorff, ami M. Del
cas.se, the minister for foreign affairs
of France, went to Versailles during
the morning and spent most of the
day there in conference. They re
turned here late in the afternoon and
attended the"grand dinner at the Ely
see palace given in honor of the Rus
sian statesman.
Although the general impression
continues that Count Lanisdorff's visit
relates to affairs in the East and Far
East the Associated Press has reason
to know that the autograph letter of
the czar which Count Lamsdorff pre
sented to President Loubet specifically
discloses that one of the chief causes
of the visit is to express the gratifica
tion of the czar at the recent course
of France in extending the cause of
international peace.
