The master plumbers claim that thestrikers are intimidating the men who refuse to strike, hence they request Pinkerton's men. The strikers deny this and claim the hir ing of special police is simply a game of bluff. 15oth sides are firm in their determination to hold out, and the fight promises to be a long one. The master carpenters association has decided in view of the threatened strike to make S hours adaj's work and the pay 35 cents per hour, and the men will be informed of this on pay dfiy which is Friday. The car penters demand 40 cents per hour and 8 hours. If the advice of conservative men be taken, these terms will be ac cepted and no strike will occur. The probabilities of a general cigar makers' strike are gradually foiling away. The manager of the Phrcnis factory sent for his men to-day, and nf ter a brief talk with them regarding their mutual interests acceded to their terms. and the men will return to work on Monday.

The executive committee of the new association have prepared addresses to the joint Republican caucus of the senate and house which were sub mitted lo-night Among other things it says the situation of the largest and most important cities of the state and indeed of many other communities is deplorable in the extreme. To leave them as they are, subject to all tho evils which absolute free whiskey can inllict, is little less than treason. There never -was a time when whiskey was so openly sold, as at the present time in large cities.

The latest returns from Providence show no member of the legislative ticket elected there. The complexion of the legislature depends on that dis trict, as well as the choice of the governor in the assembly. News from various parts of the state, fully confirm the earlier reports that the outlook and that tho legisla ture will be Republican, and that Governor Ladd will be elected hi3 own successor. The vote for Ladd shows that with a very little more work ho would have had a plurality instead of Davis. In 1889 Davis had 4,419 more votes than Ladd, but this time he lacks 573 of be ing even with him, as the following shews: Votes for governor, 1890, Davis, 19,659; Ladd, 19,086; A. B. Chase, 690; J. H. Larry, 1,829. The total vote of the state "Wednes day was 41,361. Davis made losses well nigh all over the state. One sen ator was gained to the Republicans in Warren, and a representative in Bar rington. Newport's delegation is al most solidly Democratic.

Special by Tho California As3ocivted Pbess-AhKN-EAroLis, April 3. The flour output improved slightly last week, the average daily manufacture being 22,900 barrels; the aggregate produc tion, 137,450 barrels; against 133,720 barrels the week before and 90,870 barrels for the corresponding time in 1SS9. The mills so far have not suf fered any special inconvenience from the coopers' strike. Most of the firms have conceded to the demands of the men and for a while at least will pay 33 cents for barrels, instead of 32 and 33 cents as for some time past The inactivity of the flour market is the same. There is very little de mand except for small lots, for prompt shipment, and the current output will be reduced at it is exceeding tho cur rent sales. Prices are rather easy and have a downward tendency. The lease of the present operators of the C. C. Washburn Mill company, is con tinuous, and unless the firm is notified to tho contrary by July 1, will remain in force for another year. The Pillsbury-Washburn company desires to lease this property, and i3 in competition with the present lessees for its futnro control. The directors prefer to sell rather than lease, but have refused to dispose of the plant on a basis of 2o per cent. cash. Twenty Thoaand Dollars for a FIchf.

In regarnd to the Sullivan matter, it is certain that the champion will agree to meet Jackson, but may not bo ready to do so now. There seems to be no prospect of a go between John L. and Corbett, a3 the latter wants to return to California in a few weeks. Eastern Sports Surprised. Special to The Astokian.

Bradley & Co., who had drawn on the Fourth National bank, of Hew York for amounts of S400 and $1,200 respectively, were safe and responsible. No such firm has existed here, and from the tone of the dispatches it is evident that western people are being badly swindled, and quite exten sively too. AVILL XOT RETIRE. The Alaska Commercial Company Will Not Abandon Alaska. San Fjuncisco, April 1. Louis Schloss, of tho Alaska Commercial company, who returned last night from a trip east, said to-day: "A large number of people erroneously suppose that the loss of the sealing lease means to its an absolute retirement from all our interests in Alaska There could be no greater mistake. Our trading posts and many other interests are in no wise affected by the success of the Tevis-Liebs syndicate in securing the lease. Furthermore, the firm of Hutchison, Kohl, Philips & Co. still retains the Russian lease, and will hold it nearly twenty years more, and some of those who are in terested in the Alaska company are members of that firm. Some of us are also heavy stock holders in salmon canneries in Alaska, and altogether there is plenty to do for us as well as for others. A movement is on foot among salmon canners, and agents to come to some understanding where by the production of the com ing season will not be as large as it was last year. Most careful estimates show that there is still a stock rang ing from 200,000 to 250,000 cases of 1889 salmon in the hands of producers. Prices have not the firm tendency which agents would like to observe, nor is there any immediate prospect of the disposal of the carry-over stock. Packers are now on the threshold of a new season, and naturally some of them are debating what shall be done to prevent a recurrence of the over production. The best authorities agree that a pack ranging from 1,250,000 to 1,300,000 cases this year will be ample for all purposes, and a few of tho canners are thinking of limiting things, so that more than this quantity may not be put up. As far as possible, cauning of white sal mon will also be prevented. They are a3 good as red, but consumers cannot be said to be used to them, and those that have been sold have acted to the detriment of the market for red fish."

The city was thrown into a state of excitement this morning by the news of a murder which lacks little of being as atrocious and horrible as the reported deeds of Jack the Ripper. At 5 o'clock this morning two men entered the house of Julia Dowd or Julia Gifford and found the nudo body of a woman lying in tne reception room witn a dozen cuts on her head and body, each of which would have been sufficient to have caused her death. A trail of blood led from the bed room to the spot where the body was lying and a pool of blood covering half of the bed was found and signs which indicated that a desperate struggle had taken place. In the new fall of snow tracks were seen leading to a den on Bridge street A pair of Chinese shoes half filled with blood were found beside the bed. In half an hour a dozen Chinamen were lodged in jail and an investiga tion commenced. Thero are fears to night th.it a mob may take the China men and lynch them.

About 1 o'clock this morning the guests at the Los Angeles house on Washington street, were awakened by the breaking of walls, falling of plaster and frightened shouts. Those who had retired rushed from their rooms, with just what clothes they could lay their hands on, and fled to the street On investiga tion, it was found that there was an approach to a disastrous calamity, as the appearance of the building indi cated that the foundation under its center, hail given away. All the rooms of the lousnmr liouso were more or less knocked out of shape, the plaster was cracked and had fallen off, and the doors had so settled down that in some cases, the frightened occupants of the rooms could not get egress, un til they had received assistance from the hook and lailuer company.
