According to this play er Hurst is entirely too free In distributing profanity and billingsgate.

Why, he's got the gang scared to death of him." • « • "None of the pitchers who have been drafted from the Western league by the big league are ln lt with Bill Phillips," said Mike Kahoe, the catcher of tho Indianapolis team, the other day. Mike has returned to his home ln this city, and will upend the winter JU -re. He fell to discussing Western league players ln the People's Variety theater yesterday, and ho gave the above enthusiastic Indorse ment of the 1 lousier club's best twirler.

If the Cincinnati club doesn't have Bill Phillips over hero next year they will miss it. He Is a wonderful pitcher, and I think he will do just as well ln the big league as in the Western league."

RACED TO BIHTT SKATS. Tiie Cold Aurilto-rtuiti Wan as Cold as I sual Last Xis»ht. All of the attaches cf the ladles' bicycle race at the Auditorium who expect to get anything out of the game attended the race last evening. The ticket seller dodged rain drops leaking through into his offlce and the boy with the score cards ran around talking to himself, while the ticket taker at the door had a regular snap, as he was seldom re quired to remove his hands from his pockets. A few people that held complimentary tickets last evening dropped in out of the wet with a true devotion to the spirit of getting something tor nothing, but the law of com pensation will probably get in its work on them with the colds and grip which they braved in the chill building without any fire. The girls were there, too. They had to be' but the chill of the evening enshrouded them also. None of them cared how fast the music played. Messier, who played walking matches from New York to San Francisco and back many times, made several announcements to the trainers and the boy with the score cards, but the echo from the four walls drowned his voice so that the tipekeepers had to guess at what he said. When the pistol was fired at 10 o'clock it sounded like the report of a cannon and the girls stopped riding. Mr. Messier told those connected with the race that for the four hours and a half of the race ridden so far the riders had covered ninety-four miles, all except Glaw, who Is credited with only ninety-three miles and > twelve laps. He said something about beat ing a world's record by three miles, but the trainers were in no mood to be joshed, and hurriedly took their charges away before the boy with the score cards could congratulate them. Llsette finished first, as usual, Farnsworth second. Peterson third and Williams fourth Glaw dropped out before the finish. The cyclodrome plays Sioux City next and then Kansas City.

There are about thirty-five bit* strong men stationed inside the stock ade tonight, each keeping watch through a loophole. The four tower-. have been deserted. Manager Lukens remained at hi 3 desk in the office tonight, issuing or ders to his men. Manager Lukens said tonight: "The blood of thetre men lies on the head of the governor. He 1b without justification whatever. He should have sent troops. If these troops had ar rived before the special train there would have been no bloodshed, as the men knew they were disobeying the law, and had exhibited an entirely dif ferent spirit than they did after the interview with the governor was pub lished. Mast of them affect to believe that they are right to do as the gov ernor said. His statement caused thetn to the action that they took today on firing upon this train as soon as It came into our town. At least 600 shots were fired into that train by the time lt reached the (shaft, and no shots were fired from the train until at least 150 shots were fired into it, I think, kill ing and wounding a great many of the people on the train. No shots were fired from the stockade until after sev eral of our men had been wounded. Several of the men came back without having fired their guns at all. Most of the shooting was done by the guards on the train, v.iio were author ized by the railway company." MINE OWNER DEFIANT. President Loucks, of the Chicago- Virden Com puny, Full of Fig-lit. CHICAGO, Oct. 12.— President C. F. Loucks, of the Chicago-Virden Coal company, who arrived at 9:15 o'clock tonight from the vicinity of the trouble, made the following statement to the Associated Press: "Our position has been defined right along by the press as uncertain, and we simply desire to state that our em ployes arrived at Virden at 12:40 o'clock today. We stopped the train outside our gates so the men could go Into our works, when Immediately the min ers fired from all directions, and very naturally our men defended them selves. The circumstances in full we do not positively know as yet. As to our future action we propose to follow in the future as in the past our efforts to maintain our legal rights, and wil» take steps to seek redress against all who aided or participated in the riots of today, whether they are mineis, miners' officials, state officials or others. "We shall determine before we are through Whether the government of this state can class our colored popu lation as ex-convicts, scallywags, etc., with impunity, and whether the col ored citizens of this country can have their rights under the constitution set aside at the Whim and pleasure of tne government of Illinois. We shall de termine for ourselves and others in this state just how far a governor can evadfe and annul the duties placed upon him by the constitution and statutes of this state." NO MORE FIGHTING. Gov. Tanner Cou.lienl He Can Con- trol tha Equation. SPRINGFIELD, 111., Oct. 12.— Gov. Tanner at 10 o'clock toniglit said ho had no word of further trouble at Vir den and he was confident there would be no more fighting. "I have asked tha secretary of wa* to place at my command the Fiftn Hjinois infantry, now at Springrfield, and have ordered four connpanies oi the Sons of Veterans' regiment tt_ leave for Virden early i n the morning. I In tend to have enough troopts on the scene to disarm the men who have caused this bloodshed, and, further more, I intend to take such action aa will prevent any further attempt to import labor Into this state. I don't intend to have any more trouble of this kind. My advices up to this hour In dicate tliat the first estimates Ln the number of killed and wounded were tot high. I do not believe that the list of dead will exceed fifteen, if It reaches that. The wounded will probably num ber less than thirty." ANOTHER VICTIM.

Tanner Ilium, * Mine Owners for All the Trouble. SPRINGFIELD, 111., Oct. 12.— 1n an Interview with Gov. Tanner this even ing regarding the Virden riot he said: "Mr. T. C. L#ouek, president, and Mr. Lutkin, superintendent of the Virden Coal company, at 12:30 today made good their threat to land a trainload of imported laborers from the South, and attempted to put them to work in their mines at the point of the bayonet and the muzzle of the Winchester, such laborers bt-ing drawn largely, if not en tirely, from the criminal class, ex-con victs who learned their trade while dcing terms in the penitentiaries of Alabama, after having been fully ad vised and having full knowledge that the landing of such imported laborers would precipitate a riot. "I had wired that, if they brought tlese imported laborers, they did so at their own peril, and Under the circum stances would be morally responsible and criminally liable for anything that might happen. As to what happened after the stopping of the train in front of the coal shed, my information is based on telegraphic and telephone communications, and from those coin ing from the scene of the conflict. Prom the information I can gather at this time, the very minute the train stopped in front of the coal shaft where the doors of the stockade were thrown open for the imported laborers to en ter, the firing began. As to who fired the first shot I am at this time unable to determine, but all reports agree that a general battle was precipitated with in just a few moments, and the firing became general from the gurads on the train, called deputies, estimated at fif ty or sixty, and was responded to by the idle miners lying back on the other side of the track. The battle lasted sev eral minutes, after which time the train pulled out. "The reports vary as to the num ber killed and wounded. The sheriff telegraphed that ICO were killed and the battle was still on. However from conservative estimate and from all the Information I can gather, I woudl esti mate the number of killed somewhere from nine to fifteen and possibly quite as many wounded. The killed and wounded are largely idle miners, who were on the outside. The others were the hired guards who were brought along by the coal company. Most, if not all of them, were non-residents' of Illinois. There is no means of learn ing their names or whereabouts, for the reason that they declined to give them out, knowing perhaps that they are criminally liable for murder, as they had no permission from any offi cer in Illinois authorizing or deputiz ing them to act as deputy marshals or deputy sheriffs. "Instantly on learning* of the trou ble I directed Adj.. Gen. Recce to or der Capt. Craig, of the Galesburg bat tery, and one company of the Sons of Veterans regiment, now stationed at Pana, to proceed at once by the quick est route to the scene of trouble. "I learned later that Capt. Craig met with serious difficulties in securing a train with coaches to bring his com mand, and I directed the adjutant gen eral to advise him to load his troops upon freight cars and come at once to Springfield by the B. & O. and Virden. These arrangements were made and Capt. Craig arrived here at 6:30 and at Virden by 7:00. Gen. Recce accom panied Capt. Craig, and I have Instruct ed Gen. Recce to select a camping ground, most suitable for the occasion, to quell the riot and maintaiin order, protect life and property, to disarm all persons bearing arms, making an inventory of such arms and taking the names of the Individual owner, his postoffice address, such arm to be held until further orders; and .rot to allow Imported laborers to unload from any train within the limits of the city, nor to march in a body. "These avaricious mine owners have bo far forgotten their duty to society as to bring about this blot upon the fair name of our state; have gone far enough, yes, too far, as they had fair warning from me, by wire and tele phone, that the Importation of labor which brings to our state an undesira ble class of citizens, had to stop. And I say now to such, and all others, that this thing is a thing of the past, that it shall not be tolerated in Illinois w*hi_e I am governor.

STORY OF THE STRIKE. T»e=Wc- Grew Oat of the Importa- tion ot Negro Miners. CHICAGO, Oct. 12.— The difficulty at the Virden mines originated April 1, 1898, when the miners of the Fourth district of Illinois went out on a strike Instituted by the United States Mine Workers. Trouble followed at once at Pana, but the Virden mines remained quiet throughout the summer. The strikers had asked for 40 cents an hour and were of fered ;>8 cents. Actual disturbances at Virden began Sept. 26, when the Chicago-Virden company, the prlncipel mine owners at that point, imported 100 negroes from Birming ham, Ala. When the train arrived with them on board it was met by a large budy of armed union miners, who threatened to shoot tho first negro that stepped from the oars. The negroes were finally prevailed on to re turn to the South, and the mines were not operated. President T. C. Loucks, of the Chicago- Virden company, then proceeded to maae preparations to get other miners. Oct. 9 Sheriff Davenport notified Gov. Tanner that there would certainly be trouble and that state troops were needed to preserve the peace. The governor asked if it waa the purpose of the coal company, in the event of troops being sent to import miners irom other states to take the place of the strikers. Supt. Hlkens. who was with the sheriff at the time the request was made by telephone for the militia, said that the company pro posed to .operate its mines in ita own way and that they expected to Import labor, both white and colored, from the Southern states. The governor told him that the best class of miners got employment at home and only the criminal class would came— men who would soon quit work and get Into tho poor hours, jails and penitentiaries, and become burdens to the taxpayers of the state; that be was opposed to the system; that while there was no law to keep them out of Illi nois, he did not feel it to be his dtuy as governor to use the arms of the state to give protection to mine owners in operating their mines With this class of employes. Lukens, according to Gov. Tanner, replied that th. mines would be run at all hazards; that the company would employ such iabor as they saw fit; that they would import this labor and operate the mines with it, even if they had to do it at the point of the bayonet and the muzzle of the Winchester. No troops were sent. The next day Mr. Louckjs notified the gov ernor that his mines would be operated and demanded the protection of the state. The matter had been brought before the state board of arbitration and that board decided in favor of the miners, but also held that an injustice had been done the Chlcago- Virden company. From this point the trou ble has been a dispute between Gov. Tanner and the mine operators, carried on by tele grams and other communications. The gov ernor steadily refused to call out the state troops, and charged the operators with Im porting ex-convicts and an undesirable class of workmen. The operators declared that the men they desired to bring to their mines had been chosen for their ability and their capacity to become good citizens. They also said they were willing to take back the strik ers at the scale of 23 cents a ton, but that they could not open their mines at the ex orbitant demand of 40 cents. The mines, it is claimed, are all operated in accordance with the s.ate law. Sheriff Davenport has been in sympathy with the governor and says ha does not want to enforce laws that will bring negro labor into the state, and offered to resign raun>r than undertake tha task. Five hun dred Springfield miners reinforced tha Virden strikers Oct. 10, armed and determined to prevent the negroes from going to work. Armed men have since been practically ln possession cf the town. A rumor was cir culated the day before yes:erday that a small body of negroes had been landed from a train just outside Virden, and, under cov er of darkness, conveyed to the stockade. They were supposed to be making the shaft ready for the miners who were to come. This made the strikers more than ever vig ilant Manager Lukens. of the Chicago- Virden company, swore out a writ of injunction against thiriy-four of the leading strikers. These men had run out of town four ex policcmen who had been hired by the opera tors. The strikers had not displayed violence against others until they began to suspect that more negroes were to be brought. HAD EIGHT WOUNDED. Train That Was Fired I pon Brings Injured to Sp-rlng-Held. SPRINGFIELD, 111., Oct. 12.— The special train on the Chicago & Alton, which brought the Alabama negroes to this city, had eight wounded, only one a n*gro. Of these one died tonight, Carroll, a deputy sheriff. He was shot three times, one bullet passing through his neck from the right side, another pas--ed into the temple on the r:ght side and tha third entered the brain over the eye, crossing the skull. Another train which arrived at 9 o'clock tonight brought up six wound d men, who are at St. John's hospital. Those at the Springfield hospital are: William H. Clarkson, an Inmate of the old soldiers' home at Leaven-worth, Kan., deputy skull crushed, will die. H. A. Tigar, of Bloomington, engineer on train, shot through arm. William Massey, of St. Louis, deouty, shot through head, shoulder and hands,' will probably recover. James Palmer, deputy, shot in left side of face, arm and side, will recover. Palmer has just been mustered out or the Third Nebraska regiment. He refuses to give his home. Patrick Mack, of, Virden, employed by the operators of the Chlcago-Virden shaft, bullet went through his thigh, will recover. Ernest Ryan, a colored man from Alabama. A bullet went through his head; will re cover. J. Allen Hunter, tbe president of the Illinois district of United Minors, lies ln a critical condition. Mr. Hunter got on the train which bore the colored miners to Vir den. He began talking to tbe men. Some of the deputy sheriffs saw Hunter and when the train was between North Grand avenue and the north shaft and was going at the rate of eighteen miles an hour, the deputies attacked Hunter and pushed him off the train. A nr-n who happened along later, in a buggy, saw Hunter lying near tha track in an uncon scious condition and placed him in his buggy and took him to the Collins house, whore a physician dressed his wounds. He is terrtbly cut about the face, and his ribs ard Injured. He is still unconscious. Gov. Tanner tonight wired the war depart ment asking if the Fifth Illinois infantry could not be placed at Ms disposal for u&e at Virden. Col. Culver, the commander ot the Fifth, has tendered his services, and those of tho regiment to tho governor. Chief Deputy William York, who brought the train of negroes from Birmingham, Ala., was im posed to the flre of the miners during the battle, but was uninjured, though the bullets rained around hlra. The following wo* miners are In St. John's hospital: Albert Smith, Mount Alive; Gustave Weispera, Mourn Olive; Joseph Tongue, Mount Oiive; John P.aston, Mount Olive; Joseph Jennings, Springfield; John Haines, Girard; Joe Runk, Girard; William Hecker, Girard. Tho miners are gathered in little knots on the streets of the city tonight, but thcra have been no demonstrations. They say they recognise some of the negroes who ar rived here from Virden. this afternoon, as some of those who came up three weeks ago from Alabama, and refused to go to work at Virden, and who were sent home at the expense of the minors' uuion. o a s_> «r o xt. x _a. , Bears th. #^* Rind Yoo Has Ahwys Bought Signature /^ , Z/^^Z^T of U^/V^/^.^^^ lline Workers' Pre-*!d«*pt Arrevted.

A. | OLD TIMES REVIVED GOOD OLD DAYS OF STRAMHOAT RACING OH THK OHIO HRC ALLKD THE CONTEST ENDED IN A TIE Ghost of Jim Illudsoe Called luto lie lnaj as a Feature of the Street Fair at Cairo No u NlM§Mmw on the Valve," bat That Was the Only Thinu- Luekliig In the Af fair. CAIRO, 111., Oct. 12.— Jim Bludsoe's ghost came back from the wreck of the Prairie Belle and danced along the yellow Ohio. There was a steamboat race on the river, a real race, th e kind they used to have when steamboats carried the commerce of the co«a try when steamboats werr- fljatu and steamboat men were kiiu-s, and when the fact that the Kate Adsmi had beaten tne Jim Leo Into Memphis was a bigger news item "down South" th.ii the assasslna tiou of a czar. Cairo revived the glories of the past as one of the features cf its street fair. The Dick Fowler and the Georgia Lee raced down the Ohio river from Cache .nek to Cairo. The white-haired old citizens of Cairo ran along the bank of the river and almost whooped their heads off with excitement. The younger generation caught the infection a_.d shrieked and yelled. There was only one trouble with the rac» tnat kept it from b- ing just like, old times. It waa a draw. Time was when ra'i^g steamboats either won or blew up Twenty years ago It was 100 bales of cotton to a jewsharp that if the Dick Fowlar hadn't beat en the Georgia I^e if would have been bo cause the boilers of the Fowler were at the bottom of the river and the deckhands and passengers who were stiil alive were swim ming to shore on the loose furniture. And if the Georgia Lee hadn't won it would have been because the man at the wheel was burned up before the race was over. But considering that as far as s.eamb mtlng is concerned this is a degenerate age the race of the Georgia Lee and the Dick Fowler was a success. Of course the boats burnt consid erable coal instead of nothing but resin and pine as they used to do, and. worst of all neither one had a large, fat colored individual sublimely perched on the safety valve That was the sad part of the race to the old citi zens of Cairo. NO "NIGCER" PERCH ED. "They air a-burnln' of coal, sah," said on* wire-bearded colonel from Kentucky regret fully, "and the spectatahs of those boats sah don't look as if they expected to swim' sah' Bu ..v. the wor3t part of ll »H I', eah, that neither one of thoso steamahs, sah, ha* gi>t a nigger a-settln' on the safety valve They most certainly ought to have a nigger a-set tin on that safety valve." At fifteen minutes after 2 the Dick Fowler pulled out from the wharf boat and dropped down stream and then headed up to a pom opposite the head of the wharf. The Georgia Lee cast off its line and dropped down stream Then it headed up stream again under a full head of steam and passed the Fowler which had stood quir-tly in the river, waiting The two boats, side by side, started for the month of Cache creek, where they were to come about and race back to Cairo. As they passed along the , rowds on the banks cheered, and the cheers must have reached Jim Blud.oe. The Fowler waa *ay!y decked out in flags and bunting, and had a big crowd of spectators on board. The Judges of the race, ('apt. Fred Bennett, Capt H O Brazee, and Reed Green, also stood on ' the deck of the Fowler. These committeemen were selected because of their great no_»ular /'„• they co ' jldn 't t>e elected constables of Cairo tonight, because they didn't make tne captains of the boat put darkies on the safety valves. Up the river went the beats with th» black smoke pouring out of the smokestacks and the bands playing their liveliest airs The steamers reached the mouth of Cache c e-k ■leaded about, started down stream and the race had begun. The stacks belched Bmoke and the flrr-men worked like the firemen used to do when the captains would promise "very man a gold watch if their boat was the first :nto Memphis. They worked at a disad vantage. They had to shovel coal Instead of jamming in pine knots and sides of bacon. And, besides, when they got the steam up it blew off in a moat distressing manner. There certainly ought to have been some colored person sitting on those safety valves. CAME WITH A RUSH. Down the river the beats came. *he indi cator showed a pressure that made the pas sengers turn white, and clutch all the loos© furniture they could find. Hy rights those indicators ought to have had paper pasted over them so that no one c mid have seen the arrow jigglmg around. Besides, if there had been. .somebody of African descent sittl- g on those safety valves the Indicators— but there wasn't The water churned furiously in the wakes of the two boats as they _p d along. The crowds ran alon* the banks and how led. First it looked as If the Dick Fowler would win, and then the Georgia l>»e was seen to be leading. The firemen Jammed coal and then more coal into the furnaces, and when they had the flre boxes so full that the live coals rolled out at their feet the- frantically shook their shovels at the furnaces and yeJled. The bands played for awhile, but finally the pounding engines and th? exolte j ment was too much for the bornblowers, a; d some of them went down to help tha fti Tho others thought of Jim Bludeoe, who wmt J up with the Prairie Belle, and « the pilots on tho Dick Fowler Lee like Jim Bludsoe. would stand by the wheel "till the last galoot waa ashoxa " Faster ar.d faster went the boats, but Just when they were moving like the old boats did ln the old days a spurt i from the Fowl r. and then from the G 1 Loo.
