Philadbltuia, April 13. With an
emphasis that did not permit of any
misunderstanding, C. A. Sprockets, of
the big sugar refinery, has placed a
sealed denial npon the latest story
relative to a restriction in the output of
sugar from the local establishment.
The report was to the effect that the
Philadelphia sugar king had entered
Into an agreement with the American
Sugar refinery company, whereby the
home production was to be limited to
2000 barrels per day, In return (or
which concession the Havemeyer A
Elder combination in San Francisco
was to be closed, thereby leaving
Spreckels in undisputed possession of

Chicago April, 13. Special Immigra-
lt T..- .1 . O il
uon agent iesier, oi ppnngneiu, arrivea
here today. He is preparing a volum
inous report for Secretary Foster. '"I've
just returned from Omaha," said he,
''and I can promise you a sensation in
the course of ten days. I have keen
making an investigation there, and have
evidence that the contract alien labor
law haa been and Is being grossly
violated. I am certain large concerns
there employ large numbers of men,
and have been importing alien laborers
in direct defiance of the law. It will be
a big surprise, as the concerns implicated
are known all over the world, and their
reputation for honesty has been un
questioned There are also several
other cities where an investigation has
proved the law is being violated, but in
no places are the rases so flagrant as in
The World' Fair.
Chicago, April 15. The war between
the executive committee of the lady
managers of the world's fair and Secre
tary Phoebe Cour.ins was brought to a
close today by the positive refusal of
Miss Cousins to' recognise the authority
of the sub-committee headed by Mrs.
Potter Palmer. Miss Cousins said she
would neither retire nor appear before
the committee ; that she was legally a
member of the board of lady managers,
and wss not amenable to discipline from
the executive committee. She also de
clared if this committee undertook to
dispose her, she should appeal to the
courts. A fear is quite generally ex
pressed this evening that the fend may
entirely disrupt the huly managers, as
Mis. Palmer, It is pointed out, is a wom
an of great ability and determination ot
chnractor, and Miss Cousins hits a legal
education and a remarkable record us a
plucky and successful lighter.

the labor demonstration were the first

a powerful lever,' and the rank and

The Dallis, April 15. The vote of
the taxpayers on the question of a fur
ther bonded indebtedness of $25,000 to
complete the city water works, was taien
yesterday. Very little interest was
evinced, and the vote was light. Out of
137 votes polled, only eleven were in the
negative. It is to be regretted that legal
nroviBions as to advertising for bids,
etc., will render this additional $25,000
unavailable for at least three months.
The work under contracts for reservoir
and distributing mains will be completed
this week, but the laying of supply pipes
will have to be postponed until the sale
of the bonds now authorized. .
