COLl'MHIA , S. C. . April 1. ( Special Tele
gram to The Hue. ) To mo his own language ,
Governor Tlllman tonight received "the best
news yet. " It was a dlspatcli to the effect
that nlno fugitive constables boarded a train
at Lake City , on the Northwestern railway ,
and within n few hours will have arrived
*
Bafcly In Charleston. Their names are
Feliler , Murphy , Livingston , ( lalllard , Scott ,
McCanlK , llrison , Gardiner and Harllng. It
Is uncertain whether the Oalllard mentioned
Is the chief constable or his BOH , who has
been reported as found In n ditch wounded
by citizens and then killed. It will ho re
membered that when the fight occurred at
Darlington Chief Constable ( Jalllard and
three others escaped on outgoing trains. One
of the four reached Columbia. Tlio chief
constable Is said to have returned to the
r.ccno of the trouble and nothing definite has
.been heard of him or the other two since ,
unless ho Is one of those mentioned above.
Twenty-three constables were In Darlington
when the outbreak occurred. One of these
was killed , another wounded and Is in Jail
nt Darlington , five are In Columbia and
seven are still unaccounted for. Their
names arc : Swan , Mecklii , Drown. King ,
Holloway , Walker and Galllard. Governor
Tlllman thinks that the escape ot nlno to
Charleston will greatly relieve the tension.
Ho says that honors are about even between
. the two parties engaged In the killing nt
Darlington , and If the other spies escape
the trouble will bo over. He received a
. dispatch from Adjutant General I-'urley , now
in Darlington , saying that the cltl/.ens told
him that the wounded constable , Mcl.endon ,
had been delivered to his friends. McLan-
dcn , contrary to previous report , was not
seriously hurt. General Kurlcy does not
know where ho Is now.
REGIMENT OK MILITIA SENT Ol'T.
This afternoon thirteen companies went
from this place to Darlington on tlio gov
ernor's orders. These companies have been
massed at the state penitentiary , and all
came from the country towns in the north
ern portion of the state. A large crowd of
citizens wore present when the troops went
nway , but thtiro was no dlsotder. The sol
diers were hissed and hooted at , but that was
all. They left on the Atlantic Coast Line
train. This road has been sol/ed by the
state , and no specials can go out except on
the governor's orders , llefore the soldiers
left the penitentiary Governor Tlllman ap
peared. He mounted a gallery on one of the
'prison buildings , and addressed the men.
He said :
"As chief executive of South Carolina I
wish to say a few words to you previous
to. your departure. I thank you for the
promptness and zeal displayed by you In
responding to the call of duty. Many of you
have doubts as to the justice of the cause
for which you go. You are reform demo
crats and anils , but all South Carolinians ,
'thank God. The cause of your going Is the
defense of law and the dispensary. It is a
law so long as It stands on the statute book ,
and until repealed or declared unconstitu
tional by the supreme court. The news
papers have sown the seeds of discord by
teaching you that there are portions of tlio
"law which Invodo your private rights. They
'know ' when they say this they lie. The
right to search houses on a warrant Is as
old as law Itself. They know that they are
not telling thn truth when they try to makn
you believe that these men at Darlington
were defending their liberties. I said In my
message to the legislature that there would
bo no use of a large force of constables If
thn pollco of the cities would enforce the
Jaw , but they won't do It. The dispensary
law Is not the Issue now , hut so long as It
is on the statute books , so help mo God , I
Intend to enforce It. It Isn't a miestlon of
politics to bo fought out by ball and powder ,
but by the ballot. So much for tlio opinion
that you are going to uphold tyranny.
CENSURES THE RECALCITRANTS.
"When the news came of the trouble at
Darlington , God knows 1 was never moro
shocked. When the olllcers uf the law were
hot down , I was horrified. The sheriff tele
graphed mo that ho was powerless. My
first Impulse was to appeal to the military
of Columbia. What did they do ? They
surrendered Ingloriously thu honor of being
in the service ot the state , but , thank God ,
there are men left who will obey orders
and may not bo swayed from the path of
duty by biased political opinion. Two com
panies , at Florence and at Hiimlcr , did liku-
vdflo when the action of Columbia was known
to them. Wo then beheld the spectacle ot
the udjutant general of the stain running all
over It to try and get men to do their duty.
I then ordered out the Fourth brigade , that
crack Charleston company , and all they did
was to dicker with mo as to what was their
duly. Thcso cowards In Charleston
did just llko thusn In Columbia.
Being without a company at my command , I
cast about to seu what I could do to uphold
the dignity of the state. Thank God , I found
thu men In you. You are going on u dellcato
nml dangerous mission. You must renu'inber
that the Darlington people are your fellow
citizens , but they are In Insurrection , und It
Is necessary for you to go thuru to uphold
the law. 1 see they have gotiu to work and
destroyed a atuto dispensary. Nobody did
tills but the ex-whUky men and their hire
lings , You go as an arm of the law , but
you must treat the Darlington p ° oplu with
consideration , but It you are ordered to
shoot , you must do It , or anarchy will pre
vail In the slate. I hope to restore you to
your homes as early as possible , but the
law m.ll8t be upheld or the stutu government
will be the laughing stork of the world.
This ought to bo a proud day for you. In
otter years you can hand It down as a
heritage to your children that you went to
Darlington on Tlllman'a orders and you were
proud of It. "
AWAY TO DAIH.INGTON.
"When the governor ceased ho wan cheered
lor fully a minute by the soldiers. Ho then
Jumped Into a waiting carriage and went to
the mansion , The troops then took up the
inarch and boarded the waiting special.
They were under the command of General
JUchburg of this city mid Major Newnham ot
Ills staff , They number 400 In all. They will
nrrlvo In Darlington tonight about 8 o'clock.
Two more companies of countrymen arrived
Jierc this afternoon , They number about

Ix-slioolorx and pistols , They were or-
panlred for the purpose ot atslatlng In pro-

( looil Adtlro from Senator Irby ,
WASHINGTON , April l.-To Senator Iroy
* f South Carolina la due much credit for
removing HIP editorship over press dis
patches established by Oovertior Tlllman
at Columbia. Tonight he visited thn olllne
of the Southern Associated press to learn
the latest developments. Them he ; learned
that ( lovernor Tlllman had placed ofllcers
In the Western fnlon otllco nt Columbia ,
who Inspected all mi-singe * Illed , and re
fused to forward any that did not meet
their approval. He wired ( lovornor Tlll
man , advising him against this course and
stating that It could have no other than
n detrimental effect. Hhortly afterward the
specials to the Associated press began tn
arrive In this city , 'hnd It Is believed that
Senator Irby's advice Influenced the gov
ernor to withdraw the ofllcers.
TROOPS ON TIM : soixn. :
Mllltla Sent Out by Tllliimn ICencli Darling-
Ion and ( ! Into I'niiip.
DARLINGTON , S. C. , April I. ( Special
Telegram to The Hoc. ) A special train
from Columbia , bearing over " 00 troops from
various parts of the stale , arrived here at 10
o'clock tonight. There was no crowd to meet
the soldiers , the streets being as quint as
they have been all day. The men were
under arms at Columbia as curly as day-
llglit this morning , the three last companies
arriving about that time. They were given
orders lo stack arms around the peniten
tiary , and remain there nil day waiting for
u special train to bring them here.
Tonight It was ( pilot In Darlington. Ilelng
BOtlslled that all the coiiMlables who took
part In thu shooting here Friday hail left the
country , the advisory committee at midnight
sent out Instructions to all the posses to re
turn. This being done , everything was ap
parently settled. At ono time Is was sug
gested that the oltl/.cns orgnnl/a to resist
tlio country troops that hud been mobilized
at Columbia , but upon the advice of Mayor
Dargan and Hie advisory committed no such
steps were taken.
The wounded spy , McLondon. was taken
from the Jail last night , where he had been
carried on Friday evening. Only the jailer
wus present , and he submitted very quietly.
After a bliort consultation with the friends
of the wounded man , he was given Into the
possession of a party who came to secure Ills
rt lease. They changed his clothing , cut off
his mii.sliic.he. put him In a covered wagon
and carried him Into the country , away from
any railroad station.
Tills morning when the news was received
that troops worn coming here from Columbia
there was general Indignation , and It would
not. havu taken much to start an open out
break. Tlie advisory committee met and ad
vised tlio people to offer no resistance.
Nothing Is known us to tlie plans of the vis
iting military , or of tlio purpose ot their
visit. Tlie Darlington company lias gone to
meet thu troops under the command- Gen
eral Rlchburg. The following telegram has
just been received by the advisory commlt-
tee :
COLVMIHA. April l.-A'in glad to have
your assurances of ciulet prevailing nt
Oaillngton , but armed hordes of Insur
gents are still In the country trvlng to
murder the state olllcers , so 1 am In
formed. As soon as life and limb are
safe In both counties I will Issue a procla
mation restoring thu civil statutes.
II. R. TILLMAN.
FLORENCE PEOPLE WAITING.
FLORENCE , S. C. . April L ( Special to
the Associated Press. ) Although there has
been no actual disturbance here today the
undercurrent of the feeling Is still very bit
ter , und It would only require an outbreak In
this vicinity or some" obnoxious act on the
part of the governor to again stir the citizens
to arms. During the morning hours the
town apparently recovered most of Its usual
quiet , and there was nothing on the surface
which would I ml lea to to a stranger that tlio
neighborhood was on thu verge of an upris
ing. The churches were all well attended ,
there were no disorderly assemblages on the
streets mid tlie cooler judgment of the citi
zens , after a night's rest , seemed to have
had Its effect , hut a strong feeling of re
sentment wan working behind a cloud Of ap
parent submission. The belief Is general
that even should thn ofllcers of tha gov
ernor , who arc responsible for the first out
break , bo convicted by the courts , they would
lie pardoned by the governor , as Elliott , ono
ot the spies , who slapped the face of a
woman In Charleston some time ago , wus par
doned by telegraph by Governor Tlllman ,
The people have lost faith In the efficiency
ot the law to protect their life and liberties ,
Darlington assorts her Independence of Gov
ernor Tlllman and his laws , Florence Is
ready to follow her lead , and It Is believed
that other towns stand ready to take the
cue from Darlington. McLcidon. | who was
first thought to bo seriously wounded , proves
to have been shamming and was detained In
jail by a deputy until arrangements for his
escape could bo made. The guns of the
Florence Rifles are still In the possession of
thu citizens and no attempt has thus far been
made to recover them. Even should such
an effort be made by state troops no arms
will be found , as they have bseii secreted.
The citizens are not disposed to surrender ,
but propose that being outlawed they will
proceed to restore law and order themselves.

lie Talk * with Reporters About IhoTronulo
at Darlington and Other 1'liireH.
COLUMBIA , S. C' . , April 1. The Asso-
elated press representative had a lengthy
Interview with Oovernor Tlllman at the
executive mansion this evening. The
governor granted the requested Interview
without hesitation and spoke freely about
the situation. There was some Indication
of nervousness In Ids manner , but alto
gether he was collected under thu circum
stances. The governor stated that In his
opinion thn worst of the danger was over.
He said that Inasmuch as Darlington and
Florence were In a state of Insurrection
he full It his duty to exert himself'to the
utmost to uphold the dignity and preserve
the pence of the state. At thn time of the
Interview the . " " 0 militiamen had left on a
special train for IJurllngton. In view of
thu number of companies which had re
sponded to his call he was greatly grati
fied at having finally placed the troops en-
route to the scene of the trouble.
"Hut will they shootV" was asked.
"Will they shoot"exclnlmed the governor ,
with emphasis. "Well , yon ought to have
hoard them cheer when I told them to
shoot. "
When asked how soon he expected to
restore civil law ho said hu could not
tell , there was much at stake. Darlington
and the community were In Insurrection ,
defying the authority of the state , and the
InsurreutlonlstH must be put down. The
property ot the state (1110.1111117 ( dispensa
ries ) hud been destroyed. The guilty par
ties imiHt bo discovered and brought lo
Justice. The dispensary constables were
being pursued ami In danger of their lives.
He would not permit them to be hounded
down and shot llko dogs. Pending develop
ments In these matters , hu will keep the
militia under arms.
A few minutes previous to this Interview
It was reported that the censorship of
the tetcgrnphti had been withdrawn. He
was questioned us to the accuracy of tno
rumor , and denied It very emphatically.
He said he did not wish to have anything
sent out which would Inlluim1 the passions
of the people , and for that reason , with a
view of securing accurate reports , he would
continue the censorship.
"Now , 1 will play editor for yon fellows , "
said thu governor , with a laugh. "Just
write out your reports , bring them lo me
and I will look over them. If they are not
sensational or Incendiary I will let them
go. "
He spoke confidently of the strength of
his sympathizers , "I can assemble from
1,000 to 1,000 men hero to support me , " he
said , "Why , I have received telegrams
from all over the state offering assistance ,
and I can get ns many men as I can
furnish with transportation. "
The governor poke feelingly of the dis
banding of the Governor's guards. "The
company Is tlftyono years old , " he said ,
"and this Is the first time Its members
have ever refused to obey orders. " Ho
says that Captain llatteman shed tears
over thu action of the company.
"What effect will the present disturb
ances have upon the dispensary lawsV"
"It will strengthen them. " hu Bald
nrompjly. "These continued disturbances
have been brought on by the low down ele
ment and by the violent opposition to the
measure which the cities have made. Tlie
Issue Is whether the state U to bo turned
over to hoodlums and toughs or bo gov
erned by Its Intelligent citizenship , The
result will bo In favor of the dispensary. "

WASHINGTON nUREAU OF TUB I1EE ,
filS Fourteenth Street ,
WASHINGTON' , April 1.
It will bo recalled tlmt wlien tlio court
trying tlio Pollard-Ilrccklnrldge case ad-
Joiimed Monday , March 12 , Shelby , of de
fendant's counsel , assaulted Johnson , of
plaintiff's , and that Judge Uradlcy , after
severely characterizing this affair next morn
ing , referred to reports tlmt had come to
him tlmt plalntlff'H counsel were coming Into
court armed with deadly weapons , and that
these gentlemen , one after another , arose
and disclaimed having brought weapons Into
court. It was noticed at the time , and re
garded in some quarters ar. significant , thu
neither Colonel Hrecklnrldge nor Ills son
Deslia joined In these disclaimers. It was
whispered about the court then that one of
the bailiffs felt pistols In Desha's pocket
and taking him to be ono of the counsel
Hindu the representations to Judge Dradley
which led to the disclaimers In which youns
Hrecklnrldge did not take part.
These Incidents have led to a feeling ol
apprehension In legal circles that another
and more serious affray , possibly tragedy ,
may yet mark the proceedings. It Is salil
tlmt both court and counsel have been con
sidering the possibility of such result. This
feeling Is not allayed by the story that has
been put In circulation since tlio defendant
took the stand that Deslm Hrecklnrldge , who
is standing loyally by hit ) father , has threat
ened that he would personally resent any
Insult offered his father by plaintiff's coun
sel , when the latter shall crosvexainlno the
defendant. These threats arc said to have
been made In reply to some one's sugges
tion that Jmlgu Wilson Is u skilled and piti
less cross-examiner.
HIS LAWYERS ARE ANXIOUS.
It Is also reported that some of the de
fendant's counsel are annoyed over Dcsha'.s
constant presence In the court , hometlmex
accompanied by young friends , fearful lest he
may be goaded by some fancied Insult to
his father to an act which would prejudice
the case. It Is said liuttcrworth , especially ,
feels anxious In this respect , and has so ex
pressed himself.
Mrs. Oovei nor Illackburn , who was Indig
nant at having bceiv placed In what she
deemed in equivocal position by the defend
ant , ami who significantly said on the stand
that If her husband was alive there would
bo no necessity for her to appear In court ,
is said to bo very angry over that part of the
defendant's testimony which qualifies her
own or Impugns the correctness of her recol
lection of the events to which she testified.
It Is understood she will be recalled by the
prosecution In rebuttal of certain purls of
the defendant's story.
The relations between the Dlackburns and
Ureckinrldges , It Is Mid , have become very
strained since this suit began. If the differ
ence In the testimony of defendant and her
self amounts or seems to amouut to an Im
peachment of her veracity , she will'look to
her kinsmen here , among them Senator Joe
Ular.kburn , for vindication , and It Is not
likely they will be alow to respond. Not to
go with alacrity to their kinswoman's rescue
would make them recusant to the chlvalrlc
customs of their state.
Judge llradley appreciates the situation
and Is prepared , should the occasion arifcc ,
to exercise his judicial authority with
promptness and resolution , as ho did three
weeks ago. Still affairs of the kind appre
hended are frequently precipitated without
warning , and evade every precaution to pre
vent them. Whether or not there be an out
break In court , this trial has seen the be.
ginning of ono of those family feuds which ,
cruel and bloody as n Corslcan vendetta ,
have given Kentucky a sinister reputation.
IN ANTICIPATION.
Court Lounger * Kxpect Murli from the
llrccklnrldgo-Pollurd Cane thin Wi > ok.
WASHINGTON , April 1. Although the
Hrecklnrldgc-l'ollaril scandal IIIIH dragged
through the circuit court for three weeks * ,
to the exclusion of other cases which arc
equally Important , from a financial point ,
It promises to hold the boards for two
weekH more. Judge nrndley has lengthened
the dally session of the court by sitting
until I o'clock In the afternoon , thus break
ing the time-honored custom under which
the local courts have nlwuyn finished work
at 3 p. m. Hut , despite this addition , the
lawyers do not expect to be able to deliver
their valedictories to the jury hefoi-o the
last of next week. Congressman Uu-rkln-
ridge will continue on Monday the recital
of his version of thu nine years' Intrli'i o
with Madeline Pollard , and he nuiy 1011-
Hume the entire day In roundInji out hli
storv , lifter which hevlll pass Into the
hands of ex-Judge Jere Wilson for cross-
examination. From this Inquisition the fol-
loweis of thu tilnl are antVlp.itlmr their
choicest entertainment , for tlio jurist iincl
cx-eongiossinnn from Indiana has ae \ \
earned reputation us the most Irjlng man
who could be selected from tins local bur
to rake a witness. He IN no rejecter of
persons In the court room , following lallh-
Inlly the axiom that all men are equal In
the eyes of the law , and be has an unusual
faculty .it planning traps fur a witness ,
leading him along different lines of inquiry ,
which seem liuimloss , considered singly ,
and then combining the cone'ti-ilnmi ' there *
I'rom Into one question which putt ) the vic
tim on record In another light.
Miss Pollard and her lawyer * have busied
themselves In taking notes throughout the
colonel's testimony , from which they ex
pect to draw material for the crosa-oxa in
itiation.
The Kentucky colony here tins been
keyed up to a frenzy of anticipation re
garding the course that Colonel Hreokln-
rldge would take In attempting to refute
the testimony of Mrs. Illackburn. Had he
ace-used the widow of the ex-governor of
Kentucky of misstating fiictH trouble would
have been likely to have followed , for
that lady bun frlendH of her own family
and state who were expected to resent
any reflections upon her veracity by other
than legal methods. No Hitch complica
tions have arisen HO fur and no provocation
has appeared for a broach of the pence.
In the most part , Colonel Ilroeklnrklge's
account of the episodes to which Mrs.
lllaekbiirn was a witness has agreed with
her statements , only he mild regarding
the representations of an engagement
formed a part of a preconcerted plan
between him and Miss I'ollnrd by which
the youmr woman could preserve her repu
tation. Of those passages of the Interviews
of which he has given nn account differing
from Mrn. Hlnckbnrn's ho IIIIH nald , diplo
matically , that his recollection differed
from berH.
No trouble Is expected by the Ilrockln-
rldge forces from the warrant Issued by
Speaker Crisp , summoning him to appear
at the house to help make n quorum for
the Joy-O'Neill election case. A formal
statement to the house of exceedingly Im
portant business which demands his pres
ence will probably lead the house to make
an exception In his cuso from the order
revoking ull leaves of absences , which wus
passed last week.
There will be little testimony for the tje-
fenso after Colonel Drccklnrldge leaves the
stand , and most of that Will bo In the
form of depositions. The rebuttal for the
plaintiff will come In , when Miss Pollard
herself will probably take the stand again ,
and the old principal of the Wesleyun col
lege will be culled to refute the testimony
of Itankln Moselle , to whom Miss Pollard
was engaged In 1S8I , Or. Urnwn will testify
that Roselle could not have called to pee
her two or three times u week , ns he Hold ,
because the rules of the school , which
were Htrlclly enforced , prohibited visitor * ) ,
except on Friday nights , and then only ad
mitted them In the prcsnce of the teachers ,
and will deny that Miss Pollard had pre
pared to go with htm to Chicago , as she
was only permitted to kiss him eoodbve
under the searchlight of a teachers gaze.
After the rebuttal there may he wit

WASHINGTON , April 1. The tariff bill
will be taken up for consideration In the
senate tomorrow at 2 o'clock , In accord
ance with the agreement arrived at In the
committee on finance and with the notice
of Chairman Voorlicoa to that effect , and
will In all probability be the prominent
topic of debate during the entire week.
There are other measures which may claim
attention , none of them being likely to re
ceive consideration without the consent ot
the managers of the tariff bill. Senator
Hansbrough's bill for the extermination of
the Russian thistle appears upon the cal
endar as the unfinished business , and but
for the tariff bill would be railed up on
Monday , and It Is In u position where It
could be legitimately pressed , If Its author
should feel so disposed , but It Is fair to
presume that It will be quietly laid aside
tor the tariff bill.r"
Other questions wljleli may press for con
sideration during the week are the Chinese-
treaty and the proposed bill for the regu
lation of the Herlng sea sen ! fisheries.
Senator Morgan has stated that he will
probably ask the sVnute to consider the
treaty the latter port ot the week , and
there Is a probability that the Hcrlncf sea
bill will bo consldeivd ns of mitllclent Im
portance to call for prompt action. There
will be little dllllcnlty In securing an under
standing whereby these questions can be
taken up for temporary displacement ot
the tariff If expedience should be consid
ered Important. The- pension and fortifica
tions appropriations tire also on the calen
dar ami can be considered at any time ,
but they will not bo1 pressed for the present.
The tariff bill will be the order after
2 o'clock each day ot the week , or until
tlie morning bnslne" ' ' shall be disposed of ,
and there will be 'i\f > i hours each day for
the consideration of miscellaneous ques
tions , which properly belong to that hour.
Several amendments to the tnilff bill will
be ottered on Monday by the committee on
finance , after which the speaking will
begin , In which Senator Voorhees , ns chair
man of the finance committee , will lead off.
He will be' replied to'by Senator Allison ,
but beyond the speeches It Is not known
in what order the ; senators will be heard.
It Is said that Senators McPherson and
Hill on the democratic side , will speak
early In the week , aid It Is known that
on the republican hide of the chamber
Senators Hale , Lodge. Cullom , Hoar , Haw-
lev , Morrlll and Mltchull of Oregon are pre-
them will , it Is IlKelj ; that for the present
not more than one will be heard In n day.

the house to consider. the president's veto

objections of the president , there Is little
hope that Mr. Hlund's motion can be car

that the debate will be of an exceedingly
lively character. The sliver men are In a
state of revolt and they avow their pur

all week If the silver men are so disposed ,

to prevent a limit being placed upon it.
When the veto inCf-siige Is disposed of the

nUDA-1'ESTH , April 1. An Immense
crowd of people from all parts of Hungary
and many from Austria are In the city. The
great center of attraction was the Natloua
museum , In which the body of Kossuth is
lying In state. It Is estimated that at least
160,000 people of all classes viewed the re
mains.
Several Impressive Incidents marked the
day. One was the visit of a large number
of maidens from Transylvania. Clad whollj
In white , they deposited many wreaths of
flowers on the casket. The visit of the
veteran Honved Hussars also attrncted iiuicli
attention. The t',000 Inhabitants of Czcglcd ,
who walked in a body the long distance from
there to Iltida-l'csth in order to pay the last
token of love and respect to the great Hun
garian , arrived safely , and their visit to the
hall was one of the noteworthy Incidents of
the day. The streets were thronged the
whole night with constantly arriving depu
tations.
Tlie funeral services were held In the
vestibule of the National museum In the
presence of the Lutheran bishops , members
of the Hungarian Diet and the Hungarian
Magnates. After the singing of the national
anthem , In which all present joined , Illshop
sarkany delivered an oration , In which he
eloquently extolled the patriotic services of
Kossuth ,
Maurice Jokat , one of the leading Hungar
ian writers , and a member of the Diet , fol
lowed , speaking on behalf of the lower house.
Ho dwelt at length upon the self-sacrldee
Kossuth had made for his country , conclud
ing with a touching farewell to the dead
patriot. Ills words moved many of his
audience to tears. The burgomaster of Huda-
Pesth said tlio grave of Kossuth would be
come a placj of pilgrimage for Hungarians ,
every one of whom felt the deepest gratitude
for the services Kossuth had rendered his
country.
When the funeral services at the museum
had been concluded the collln was conveyed
to the funeral car , to which were attached
eight horses covered with mourning capari
son. In the procession were twenty special
cars , hearing between 2,000 and ,1,000 funeral
wreaths. Then followed GOO Houveds. All
wore medals. Firemen formed a guard on
each side. The cortegu occupied two hours In
reaching the cemetery , the streets through
which it passed being densely crowded.
Not a window nor a roof along the route
was unoccupied. Uiihlness , much .ot which
Is done In Huda-Pcsth on Sunday , was at a
complete standstill , all the business houses
being closed. Everybody wore mourning ,
and the city presented a scene that wus
never witnessed here. The members ot a
thousand deputations , carrying wreaths and
banners , followed the Honveds. as the pro
cession choirs sang national airs and KoKsntli
hymns.
As R pabbed the opera liouso thou
sands of persons massed upon 1lio'Steps'
suddenly joined In tjie Kcssuth-hymn. From
the opera houseon there was an Intermit
tent rising of patriotic songs from tlie popu
lace. There was no disorder ; no pollco were
visible along the route , except at the crossIng -
Ing : ! .
Tho. final ceremonies at the cemetery ,
though simple , were very Impressive. Sev
eral speeches were made by represent atives
of tlio Independent party and by Honveds
who served under Kossnth. After these
and the singing of a choral the coffin was
laid Into a temporary vault. At this mo
ment a touching spectacle presented llself.
The Immense assembly gathered outside the
cemetery fell .upon Its knees and offered a
silent prayer. The ceremonies concluded ,
the crowd dispersed quietly.

HONOM'I.r , March 2i ( ( via Steamer
China to San Franclf-co , April l.--lly ) far
the most serious problem that confronts
the provisional government at present is
the attitude of the Japanese laborers and
their representatives here. The Nunlwu ,
the Japanese warship , which bus been
stationed here for some months , left port
for a few days , ostensibly to go to Hawaii
for target practice. J. Fully , the Japanese
consul general , went with the warship.
The Nnulwa returned on the 2lst. and
either by coincidence or prearranged plan
she was met about twenty miles away by
another Japanese warship , the Takaublho.
During Fully's absence the Japanese on
several plantations had struck.
Tlie government brought all the strikers ,
to the number of seventy , to this city , and
they are now In Jail. The Japanese are
against thu provisional government , and
their consul and other otllclnls have done
all that they could to further a feeling of
antagonism.
At the last meeting of the councils , the
executive was asked whether Minister Wil
lis was still carrying out his plan of lutur-
vpntlon for the purposeof restoring Queen

natives understand just how the matter of
restoration stood. In reply President Pole

dents of that section of the city Is bitter
against the A. 1' . A. Jn order to create
discord among these people and lo divide
their strength , the A. P. A. leaders have
encouraged the labor movement known as
the co-operative party , ami given It sub
stantial encouragement. They have partly
succeeded , and of late there has l ) on moro
or less friction between members of tlio
co-operative party and the members of the
Columbian league. This feeling culminated
tonight In the bloody riot , which was pre
cipitated by the members uf the cooperative
tive party.
