Shanghai Scene of Greatest
Strife in the Chinese
Revolution
Washington, D. C, Jmly 25. The
American legation at Pekin reports to
the state department that in the tight
ing near, Shanghai remains loyal to
Yuan Shi K&i, while the merchants of
Canton also oppose the rebellion from
business considerations.
On the whole, the government troops
are successfully resisting the attacks of
the rebels at the Shanghai arsenal, wihile
the southern troops on the Pukow line
re reported to be retreating.
Shanghai, July 23. The government
forces Here nave been aided by guns.
Admiral Tbeng-'a warships to-day were
repelled by a fierce assault of rebels,
who had been reinforced during the
night. Foreign consuls lodged a com-
Flaint with Admiral Tseng that shells
rom the warships had fallen on foreign
concessions.
RESIDENTS ARE FLEEING.
Because of the Loottng of the City of
Shanghai.
- London, July 25. A Shanghai despatch
to the Daily Telegraph says:
"Looting ha begun in the city and
the residents are fleeing. Many fires
were caused by bursting shells, and sev
eral foreigners were wounded by stray
shots.
"Shanghai is so full of refugees from
Nanking and Kiu Kang that the people
are sleeping in the streets. A boatload
of southern deserters ws sunk by the
g-.mbnat fire. The northerners have oc
cupied a rebel fort near the arsenal."
The Shanghai correspondent of the
Morning Post expresses the opinion that
the southerners are not likely to repeat
their attacks on the arsenal, but will
abandon Shanghai, and that the revolu
tion will speedily end.
Shanghai, July 25. 2 a. m. During
ths past twenty-four hours the rebels
Jrnve made a series of spirited attacks
on the arsenal, but all of them have
been successfully repulsed, and the gov
ernment troops are so encouraged at
theiir continued success that they have
assumed the offensive and are forcing
the rebels back on Nantao, a southern
suburb of the Chinese native city.
Admiral Tsng litis formally warned
the Nantao Chamber of Commerce that
unless the rebels disperse, he will bom
bard their position and the forts at the
mouth of the river, which are also m
the hands of the southerners.
TURKS INVADE BULGARIA.
Sofia Threatened by Four Armies and
Ferdinand Appeals To Europe.
London, July 25. Without declaring
war and apparently trusting that the
jealousies of the powers will prevent
any European interference, Turkey has
begun an invasion of Bulgaria. The
Turks have occupied and burned the
villages on the Jamboil. road and it is
reported have pushed their reeonnais
sance a far as Philippopolis.
No information has yet been received
aa to the strength of the forces which
have crossed the frontier. Probably they
are only comparatively small bodies of
Enver Bey's cavalry. Some skirmishing
has occurred on the frontier, but seem
angly the Bulgarians have offered no
serious resistance.
In Vienna it is reported that the
Turks have crossed the Bulgarian fron
tier in three places, roughly coinciding
with the routes followed by the Bulgar
ians last October, namely by the Marit
za and Tundja valleys, as well as in
the direction of Jamboli. ,
King Ferdinand of Bulgaria has pro
tested to the powers and appealed for
European intervention, but there is no
sign that Europe will take action. Jt
appears doubtful whether any armistice
will be signed at Nih until peace pre
liminaries have been arranged. Greece
and Servia are both throwing obstacles
in the way of an armistice while, push
ing their attacks in the direction of Sofia.
Violence in Michigan Copper Mines Re
suits in Orders Being Issued to Send
Soldiers Strikers Urged to
Remain Loyal.
Calumet. Mich., July 25. Disregard'
ing orders of the Western Federation of
Miners against violence, many of the
15,000 striking miners of the copper belt
yesterday created enough disturbance to
result in the ordering out of troops. By
to-night there will be nearly 2,400 state
soldiers, including cavalry and artillery,
in the mining'nelds of tlie upper penin
sula of Michigan.
There were no concerted attacks on
mine property or persons about the
mines, but several persons were injured
in sporadic brawls. So menacing did the
situation appear to Sheriff Crime that
he asked Governor Fergus for militia
early in the day.
When the governor was convinced
that armed help was needed be ordered
Adjutant-General Vandercook to rush
soldiers to the strike zone. While there
were several outbreaks in various parts
of the country, the main disturbance
was an assault on the deputy sheriffs
stationed at the mines of the Calumet 4.
Hecla company to protect property.
? one of the mines has attempted to op
erate but the strikers seemed to object
to the presence of the deputies.
About 300 strikers, armed with steel
drills, clubs and stones and a few with
firearms which they fired in the air,
marched to the No. 2 conglomerate shaft
and stripped the deputies of stars. The
victorious strikers proceeded to the
Heckla branch mine and divested the
deputies thehe of their insignia of authority.
1 he deputies could not offer much re
sistance as the strikers outnumber them,
but there were many fights after the
stars had been collected and several per
sons were severely beaten. A few men
were taken to hospitals.
the strikers then surrounded all the
surface plants of the Calumet & Heckla
company and forced suspension of aux
iliary operations m these plants.
hether the strikers yielded to the
advice of their leaders or were frighten
ed by the call for roops is not certain,
but they ceased tbeir violent demonstra
tions in the afternoon.
Several mass meetings were held
and great enthusiasm was shown when
the speakers exhorted the men to re
main faithful to the strike orders.
After a mass meeting in Calumet
strikers marched to the Red Jacket
shaft of the Calumet A Heckla company
and chased awav three watchmen.. Then
lovaltv meeting was held at which
orators begged the men not to use
violence, but to stand together in their
demands for more wages, beter working
conditions and recognition of the union.
At Hancock strikers went to the Park
Brewing company's plant, operated bv
non-union men since some time ago, and
closed the plant by driving away the
brewers. " , -

Vineyard Haven, Mass., July 25. The
steamer Millinocket, bound from Stock
ton, Me., to New York with a cargo of
paper, arrived here in a sinking condi
tion this morning as the result of a col
lision in the fog at midnight off Pollock
Kip Slue with the steamer Persian,
bound from Philadelphia for Boston
with passengers and freight.
A wireless message received from the
Persian said that her bow had been
damaged but gave no further details.
The Persian was expected to reach Bos
ton during the day. The Persian struck
the Millinocket a glancing blow aft of
amidship on the starboard side, ripping
the plating open to the waterline.
When the Millinocket reached here her
stern had settled to the harbor bottom,
but the bulkheads in the engine room
and the forward hold kept her bow
afloat.

INVESTIGATION STARTED.
Of Binghamton Fire Horror in Which 50
Lives Were Lost.
Binghamton, N. Y., July 25. Investi
gation of the causes of the Binghamton
Clothing Co. fire which Tuesday after
noon resulted in the loss of the lives of
forty-one garment workers, was begun
yesterday by Coroner Seymour. Repre
sentatives of several state boards were
present and were granted permission to
question the witnesses.
Ambrose Fuller, shipping clerk of the
burned factory, testified that he discov
ered the fire on the stairway between
the first and second floor, where old
books were stored. The exact cause of
the fire was not fixed. Wiithin five min
utes, Fuller testified, conditions inside
the factory were such that no one could
live inside the four walls.
It was brought out that the fire es
capes were never used in conducting fire
drills. According to witnesses, flames
fiom the windows made it impossible
to use them with safety.
James Whiskeman, an engineer expert
in the employ of the state Senate fac
tory investigating commission, who was
present during the inquest and who was
retained to investigate tihe Triangle fac
tory lire in New York, made a state
ment yesterday in which he claimed his
examination has indicated that a stair
way had been moved "to make more
, room for manufacturing."
"It is," he said, "another cae of dol
lars and cent being placed above human
Jile,"
Workmen in
Factory.
Brockton, Mass., July 25. Another
letter threatening death if he continued
to work in the tack factory of the W.
W. Cross company was received by an
employe yesterday, the letter being
passed to him through an open window
by a man who walked along Prospect
street. The man is unknown to the op
erative who received the note. It is be
lieved he comes from out of town as lie
was not recognized by any of the men
working in the .shop.
The letter was turned over to the
police by William B. Cross,, manager of
the plant. The writing was in Lithu
anian and was translated by John Ro
manus, the police court interpreter.
As yet there has been no serious dis
turbance about the factory when the
operatives go to work or leave, but the
police have more than doubled the
guard, five policemen being outside the
factory all day, while others guard the
building at night.
Organizer Caleb F. Howard of the I.
W. w. said yesterday that a committee
of strikers had conferred with Mr. Cross
and that propositions coming from both
sides had been turned down. The con
ference resulted from a visit made by
Mr. Howard and the committee to the
Boston office of the United Shoo Ma
chinery company.
The committee conferred with M. B.
kaven of the Boston office. Mr. Kaven,
according to urgamzer Howard, told the
committee . that while the company
handles the product of the Cross factory
and is interested financially in the busi
ness, the company has no rights or di
recting power to the extent of having
any voice in the fixing of wages or
conditions.
When Steamer Persian Bumped into the
Millinocket.
Boston, July 25. The steamer Persian
of the Merchants & Miners line, reached
port to-day with her stem twisted and
her forepeak full of water, as the result
of a collision in a dense fog at midnight
with the steamer Millinocket, paper-laden
and bound from Stockton, Me., to
New York. No one was injured, but
the impact awakened the 51 passengers
of the Persian and caused excitement un
til the fears were allayed by the officers
of the vessel.
BLOOD TRANSFUSION
FOR MRS. PANKHURST
To Be Supplied When Huge Dam on Wi
nooski River Is Completed.
Burlington, July 25. When the Wi
nooski Valley Power Co. gets the dam
erected at Essex Junction there'will be
a new lake, a quarter of a mile wide
and two and a half miles in length, in
Chittenden county, and one ot the larg
est power plants in New England wi
be the result. At present a force of 250
men is engaged on the work, along with
about a dozen derricks, ten steam en
yines, a private railroad and many oth
er pieces of apparatus necessary to the
accomplishment of a large work by a
concern of the size of the Snare 4 Triest
Co., who are handling this contract. The
work will not be completed for more
than a year, just how long cannot be
determined. It depends upon too many
uncertainties, the nature ot the rock, th
weather, the water in the river, and
more than all, upon the ice, which tears
out dams all along the river s length in
some springs. About a mile and a half
below the site another dam is being
erected to replace the wooden one at
the gorge, and seventy-five men are at
work on this.
The Winooki Valley Power Co. as
organized tor the purpose ot building
this dam and is a branch ot the Amen
can Gas Co. It is therefore affiliated
with the Burlington Light & Power Co,
hen completed, between 0,000 and 10,
000 horse power will be developed and
the "juice will be sold to any factory
within the radius of fifty miles. Al
ready some of the granite concerns of
Barre have contracted for power, and
no concern is telt regarding the utilizing
of the power, f igures are not obtain
able, but it is supposed the cost of build
ing the dam and powerhouse will be in
the neighborhood of f200.000.
Militant Suffragette Is in Very Low

BURNED BY LIGHTNING.
Woburn, Mass., Woman Knocked Down
Yesterday Afternoon.
Woburn, Mass., July 25. Durng ' a
heavy electric storm yesterday after
noon, Wood's block, 0 Park street, was
struck by lightning and badlv damaged.
and one of the occupants, Mrs. Mary
Jane Muse, was knocked down and
burned on the hands.
Mrs. Muse had just drawn a dinner of
water when the wall over the sink was
shattered and the room filled with blind
ing light.
The woman was partially stunned, but
quickly recovered. Beyond the blisters
on her hands, she sustained no injury.
1 he Dolt entered the roof near the
chimney, ripped the attic floor into kind
ling wood, and then took a zig-zag course
to the cellar, tearing oil plastering,
breaking mirrors and melting picture
wires as it traveled.
In the kitchen of Mrs. Muse, the dam
age was greatest, nearly all the plaster
ing in that room being torn from the
walls. The woman's mother and daugh
ter were in the house but were not iu-1
jured.
Tenney .Corporation .Building .Trans
former House at Gramteville.
Manager C. F. Millar of the Consoli
dated Lighting Co. returned this after
noon from Gramteville, where he has
been inspecting the new transformer
house which the ('. H. Tenney corpora
tion is erecting for its quarry service.
Before operations now under way on the
site of the old transformer house are
completed the Tenney corporation will
have expended the sum of $2,000 in im
proving its power facilities at the quar
ries. Work on the transformer station
is being pushed rapidly forward.
The building is to have lateral dimen
sions of 27 feet, eight inches by 3rt
feet, eight inches, with an altitude of 32
feet. The foundations are of stone, the
walls of solid brick construction, with
cement floors and steel girders. Steel
window frames together with the other
inflammable material used in the con
struction will make the building abso
lutely fireproof in every detail.
An approximate reckoning of the cost
divides the expense into $,,000 tor the
equipment. In each instance, if the cost
deviates at all from these figures it will
exceed rather than fall short of the es
timate, it was stated by the Tenney of
ficials to-day. The interior-of the sta
tion is to be divided into two rooms,
one of which, to measure 20x27 feet, will
be used for the transformer equipment,
while the other, to be utilized as a.
switchboard room, will have dimensions
of 13x27 feet. Provisions have been
made for adding an annex to the station
when occasion arises. When completed
the transformers located at the new sta
tion will furnish power for every patron
of the Consolidated Co. on either side of
the hill. The construction work is car
ried on under the direction of the Ten
ney corporation, although its comple
tion will see the structure turned over
to the Consolidated Co.

GREETED BY HOOTS.
Touring Suffragettes Asked for Police
Protection in Rutland.
Rutland. July 25. The Boston suffra
gists, touring Vermont in the interests
of their "cause, have abandoned their
original intention of visiting Governor
Allen M. Fletcher at Ins home in Caven'
dish on the ground that the trip would
take them too far out of their way.
The women, wIk are touring "New Eng
land and will later go to W ashington to
present a petition in favor of votes for
women, are Mrs. Susan Fitzgerald, Dr.
Eliza Ransom, Mm. George Morris, Miss
Matilda Eraser and Miss Margaret F.
Murphy of the Political Equality union
of Boston. They are accompanied by
C. S. Rickcr, the representative of a
Boston newspaper.
They arrived here from Burlington at
eight o'clock by automobile, and spoke
in Main street park last night after
the band concert. The first attempt of
the suffragists to speak met with little
success, certain obstreperous members of
the large audience hooting and cat call
ing the speakers who were compelled to
ask for police protection in order to
obtain an opportunity to make them
selves heard.
After the first demonstration the
crowd permitted the sufftagists to talk,
the discussion being punctuated from
time to time, however, by outcries. All
the visitors spoke briefly and earnestly,
making strong pleas for the privilege of
the Via Hot for their sex. Suffragist lit
erature was distributed among the
crowd.

TEN CLAIMANTS TO FARM.
LEFT SING SING TO-DAY
FOR AUBURN PRISON
Meanwhile Company of Na
val. Militia Stood Ready
to Protect Ossining
Ossining, N. Y., July 25. .Sixty con
vict, the dregs of the New York City
criminal class, were taken from their
cells in Sing Sing prison to-day and
placed aboard a train for the state pris
on at Auburn. Because of the recent
prison riots, each convict was heavily
handcuffed and shackled and chained to
his place in the railroad car, which had
been brought inside the prison enclosure.
One hundred guards of the prison did
this work while in the state armory
nearby a company of naval militia
awaited the call to protect the town in
case the transfer of the convicts re
sulted in mutiny in the prison. The
train was heavily guarded to prevent
possinie uenvrry 01 me prisoners nv
their friends. A second detachment of
the convicts will be removed to Auburn
to-morrow.
The second fire of the week in build-
ngs of the prison yesterday was fol
lowed by strike of loo convicts.
Threats that extreme measures would be
adopted induced the malcontents to re
turn to their cells; but when darkness
fell last night the hoots and jeers of
hundreds of convicts could be heard all
over Ossining.
j he spirit of insurrection that has
been evidenced for several days was in
spired from the outside, the warden ex
pressed the opinion. He believed that
isitors have told the convicts that Gov
ernor Sulzer's removal of John S. Ken
nedy, since indicted for alleged malfeas-
nee in office, as warden, was due to
politics. Kennedy was personally popu
lar among the men. For a week or more,
lancy said, he had expected a strike

Relative to the discussion at Quincy,
Mass., concerning Barre's plan for en
tertainment of the delegates to the Na
tional Retail Monument Dealers' Asso
ciation of America in Boston next month
and as to the charge that Barre was
trying to take Quincy's date, the follow
ing statement was issued from the officd
of the Barre Granite Manufaeurers' as
sociation to-day.
"The annual meeting of the National
Retail Monument Dealers' Association of
America, Incorporated, will be held in
Hoston, Mass., Aug. 19, 20 and 21. The
1012 con vent ion-was held in Detroit and
at that time the Barre manufacturers
and representatives from several small
er New England granite centers invited
the N. R. M. D. A. to hold their 1613
convention in the East. The majority
of the dealers expressed themselves as
being desirous of making a visit to the
quarries, and Boston was the choice of
the convention.
"For the purpose of carrying out plana
for the convention program, the New
England Memorial convention bureau
was organized, with a Bane man as
secretary, and for the past four months
representatives from Barre have been
working in conjunction with representa
tives from other smaller gTanite centers
to make the Boston convention a how
ling success from every standpoint. It
is already assured that their efforts will
be rewarded. The exhibit feature of
the convention promises to exceed all
previous efforts and already over 13,000
feet of floor space has been sold to ex
hibitors. The exhibition will be held
in the Boston Arena, which is especially
fitted for exhibitions of this kind.
"The Granite Manufacturers' associa
tion, the Quarry Owners' association,
the Merchants' association and the Barre
Board of Trade have made extensive ar
rnngwmentrfrir the entertainment of aft
dealers who want to come to Barre at
the close of the convention Thursday
afternoon. Friday, Aug. 22. will be
known as 'Barre day' and already ths
dealers are looking forward to a visit '
to the largest granite center in the
world the home of Barre granite.
"On July 17 a communication was
received from Quincy, suggesting that
they would like to have Friday in which
to entertain the dealers and asked how
that would miit the Barre people. The
communication was laid before the com
mittee from the above-named organiza
tions and Quinery was advised tliat ar
rangements had already been completed
and invitations issued for Friday as
Barre day.' The committee regretted
the fact that Quincy had not completed
its arrangements and presented its re
quests sjtoner, as they would have been
disposed to help out Quincy even though
they were somewhat behind time.
"From articles published in the Quincy
papers. 1t appears that some Quincy peo
ple are somewhat peeved to think that
Barre would not wait till they hart
waked to the fact that there was really
to be a convention in Boston; but Barre
is too busy getting out monuments for
dead ones to seriously consider the criti
cism of it smaller competitors, and if
Iiarre has erected a Barre granite monu
ment in Quincy. whose fault is it?
"It appears that a Quincy representa
tive wis in Barre recently and heard of
the preparations which a real live gran
ite center was making to entertain the
granite dealers, and in order to stimu
late Quincy to emulate the largest gran
ite center in the world, the followed ap
peared soon after in a Quincy paper:
" 'Mr. Miller informs us that the Barre
Manufacturers' and the Quarrymen's as
sociations have appointed committees to
raie funds and make arrangements for
a special vestibule train to run from
Boston to Barre after the convention,
which will be free to fill dealers who
will go. They expect the citv council
to armronriate $500 towards tne enter
tainment. Every manufacturer will
keep open house. They propose to dec
orate their main street beyond anything
ever attempted there before, and so im
press on the dealers' minds the hospital
ity of Barre, that when these dealers
want to buy a monument they will
think of no place but Barre. They are
also preparing some splendid specimens
of memorial art to show at the Boston
exhibition.
"'We are informed by Mr. Miller that
the Quincy manufacturers are awakening
to their opportunity. He only got his
plans made of the Arena floor epac one
day before he left for Baire, and had '
oniy time to see six manufaeturera, but
they took eight spaces in the exhibition
hali. and six pages of advertising in the
souvenir program. That is fine, but he
says they will have to go somo to keep
up with their competitor in Barre. The
manufacturers will not have auch a
chance to show their goods to the deal
ers of the country at large for the next
twenty-five years. Space has already
been sold in Missouri, South Carolina,
Rhode Island. Vermont, Massachusetts
and other states.'
"Here we have pictured to us. Barre,
Vermont, alive to its opportunities, en
ergetic and hospitable and over here,
Quim v, just awakening. But then, this
is not the first time that Barre enter
prise has been used as an example to
others, and we are pleased to have an
other demonstration of 'Y lead; others
follow.'
"Yes. Friday, Aug. 22, will be 'Barre
day,' and indications are that it will
be" 'some' day. Barre manufacturers,
quarry owners and business men are all
co-operat;ng and the key of the citv wi'l
be delivered to the N. R. L i. A.
on the above date. Details of all ar
rangements will bo published later."
