A NEW ORLEANS RIOT
ONE POLICEMAN FATALLY HURT
AND MANY SERIOUSLY IN
JURED IN STREET CAR
Effort to Operate a Car Failed and
v No Further Attempts Will Be
Made Until Troops Are
New Orleans, Oct. 8. The first
attempt to run cars from the Canal
street barn, which was made at lo
o'clock this morning, resulted in a
serious riot, in which Policeman
Schlessinger was shot through the
head and probably fatally wound
ed; Conductor Kennedy was shot
in the hand; Motorman Ferguson,
a striker, was shot through the arm
and a number of policemen were
painfully wounded by nying mis
The first car which started from
the barns was in charge of Motor
man Fred Nintz, of Chicago, and
Conductor M. L. Kennedy. There
was on board a large force of po
licemen, and Peter Johnson and,
Alfred Clark, who arrived here last
night from Chicago with a force of
3o men to take the places of the
strikers. A large crowd was on the
street, members of the mob rushed
out, tore up' planking from either
side of the street and threw it a
cross the track. Then bricks and
stones flew through the air. Ob
structions brought the car to a
standstill, and a rush was made for
the nonunion men on board. There
was such a hail of missies that the
police and others on board had to
stoop to save themselves.
As the car stopped, a number of
policemen jumped on in an attempt
to press back the strikers. Imme
diately a shot was fired. Then a
perfect fusillade of shots came from
both sides, and the car was envel
oped in smoke. In the meantime
R. D. Kountz, a young man from
Luray, Va., who was on the car,
ran out and attempted to clear the
track of the planks and debris. He
was pelted with bricks and stones,
but was perfectly cool; and had
pretty well cleared the track when
the mob descended on him and ov
Clark and Johnson fell from the car
and was terribly beaten before the
police could fight off the mob and
rescue them. Police reinforcements
were rushed to ihe scene, and after
a long struggle the space immedi
ately around the car was cleared.
Motormau Nintz is charged with
having fired the first shot. Orders
for his -arrest have been issued. Af
ter the rioting, the car was run back
to the barn; and it is now said that
no further efforts to operate cars
will be made until the troops are
on the scene. The mayor is endeav
oiibg to reach Governor Heard.
All of the nonunion" men who
were on the car attacked today were
armed, and all of them are said to
have used their weapons during
the attack. Alexander Derbs a la
borer and bystander, was shot in
the leg during the rioting.
It is said warrants ;will be sworn
out in the Federal court against
many of the men who participated
in the rioting yesterday, on the
ground that the service of the mail
cars was interrupted. Secret service
agents from Washington are report
ed to be here and co-operating with
the local police officers.
One hundred, and twenty mem
bers of the poliae force guarded the
barns of the railroad company dur
ing the night. It was feared that
some attempt might be made to fire
A number of men who were all
from Chicago are reported to havfr
been captured by the strikers and
to have deserted to the union.
San Francisco, Oct. 8. The gun
boat Bogota, the vessel of the Co
lombia government, which has been
fitting out here for some time past,
sailed for southern waters yesterday
afternoon. She has an all-American
crew, and both officers and
men have "pasts" in which fighting
has been the dominating character
istics. Her officers have been train
ed in the science of modern warfare,
and her sailors nearly all hold dis
charges from the United States na
vy. Trie Bogota's cre,w i about 4o.
Twelve of her sailors were with
Dewey at Manila, and several of
them should now be serving Uncle
Sam on the battle ship Oregon. In
the Bogota's crew are three gradu
ates of the United States school of
Tbe Bogota before sailing, mount
ed a 14-pounder in her bows. She
has four rapid fire six-pounders on
her quarter deck, two Maxim-Nor-
denfeits amidships and two Col
automatic field guns mounted on
"We're Americans, every one of
us," was one sailor's farewell mes
sage. "We would not be much
credit to a Sunday school, and some
of us could not get jobs in banks,
but we can lick any bunch of our
weight and numbers in white, and
all the "niggers" Central America

A Typical South African Store.
O. R. Larson, of Bay Villa, Sundays
Riverr, Cape Colony, conducts a
store typical of South Africa, at
which can be purchased anything
from the proverbial "needle to an
anchor." This store is situated in
a valley nine miles from the near
est railway station and about twenty-five
miles irom the nearest town.
Mr. Larson says: "I am favored
with the custom of farmers within
a radius of thirty miles, to many of
whom I have supplied Chamber
lain's remedies. All testify to their
value in a household where a doc
tor's advice is almost out of the
question. Within one mile of my
store the population is perhaps six
ty. Of these, within the past i2
months, no less than fourteen have
been absolutely cured by Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. This must
surely be a record." For sale by
Graham & Wells.

NewOrleans, Oct. 7. Niolence
started with the first attempt of the
railway company ,to carry out the
order of the mayor to run its cars
today. Just before 7 o'clock the
company star ten out three cars
from the barns on Canal street.
On each car, manned by a nonun
ion motorman, there was a police
force. Crowds of etrikers and sym
pathizcrp were on the streets.
When the cars reached Miro the
tracks were blockaded, and when
they came to a stop the crowd made
an attack. A pistol shot was fired
and the nonunion man attacked.
One of them, a conductor from Chi
cago, was badly beaten. .
When the rioting spent itself 3
cars were left standing upon the
track guarded by policemen. All
the windows were smashed. The
mob captured the conductor and
his motorman and both consented
to join the anion. Some of the po
licemen were hurt by flying stones.
When news of the rioting reached
the City hall the mayor issued a
call for a meeting of the police
board. It is understood that the
object is te swear in emergency po
licemen. Governor Heard will or
der out the militia when he i3 noti
fied by Mayor Capdeville that the
situation is beyond his control.
COLLEGE CLASS GIYES FOUNTAIN

The unveiling of a fountain on
the college grounds will be an in
cident of next Wednesdav's dedica
tion exercises at the college. The
fountain is to be located about 40
leet eastward 01 tbe snot where the
main walk forks at the east en
trance to the college campus. It is
the gift to the college of
the members of the
class of 1902, and is to. be
a monument of their gradua
tion. There are a dozen or more
of the members of the class in town,
and it is expected that a much larg
er number will be present and at
tend the unveiling.
Ihe fountain is the figure of a
female, pouring water from a pitch
er into an urn. When it strikes
the urn-the water flies off into a
circular spray. Around the base
are 33 small jets that play when
the fountain is in operation. The
figure stands six feet, two inches
high, and it is to ba placed onte.

ure is of metal, enamelled whiata
It weighs 450 pounds, and, its list
cost with base was $350.
. It looks now as though O. A. C
would put out a formidable foot
ball team this season. After sev
eral years of inocuous desuetude in
such matters there seems a revival
out on the hill of interest in the
game. Every evening from four to
half past five or six from 30 to 40
young men 01 bulging muscle and
hefty avoirdupois-line up against
each other on the gridiron and
work conclusions at a large outlay
of exertion. So far, there are but
two old O. A. C. men on the team.
These are Burnough at center and
Captain Gault, who plays now at
tackle. All the rest, barring such
as played more or less on last year's
team, have yet their spurs to win.
As a whole, the team is scarcely so
heavy as O. A. C. usually turns
out. Coach Herald expects, how
ever, to educate them to make up
in fastness of play whatever they
may lack in avordupois. As to the
new men, it is not yet determined
which of them will take places on
the first team. Pilkington at tack
le plays a formidable game, and it
is practically understood that he is
certain to be chosen for that posi
tion. Root, a big man from East
ern Oregon, who gets over the field
like a 11-second man and Wil
liams who played the position last
year, are candidates with fair show
of success for halves. Abram and
Bowers seem in a fair way to play
guard and Nash is playing a good
game at full. As to the other po
sitions, for all of which there is ,a
bundant material, but little can be
This afternoon on O. A. C. field,
the men will line up for an exhi
bition practice game, where those
who wish to know more of condi

for themselves. The play will, un

New York, Oct. 5. The "Ameri
can's proofs of theexistenceofa local
trust and petition for the prosecu
tion of the combination under the
Sherman anti-trust law are todav
before President Roosevelt and Attorney-General
Mr. Knox lately reported to the
president that he could find no ev
idence against the coal roads as a
trust to bring them within the scop 1
of the Sherman law.
"The "American" now supplies
the proof from documentary evi
dence. The Industrial Commissioners'
report, filed this year, after investi
gation of the trusts, expressed the
belief that only an illegal combina
tion f tbe coal roads existed. The
"American" is able to put into the
government's hands the actual facta
of the combination a formation and
unlawful operations. The very sig
natures of the officers of the com
panies in the coal trust to an agree
ment made for the illegal purpose
of monopolizing the anthracite trade
are a part of the evidence.
It is then shown that these com
panies, prior to 1901, mined and
sold 70 per cent, of the supply and
individual operators the remainder.
The railway, then by agreement,
charged as freight 40 per cent, of
the f. o. b. price of coal at tidewater.
Application was made to the New
York State Railroad Commission
ets for a charter for the D .-la ware
Valley and Kingston Railroad, to
run fron Kingston, on the Hudson
river, to Lackawanna, and connect
ing with the railroad owned by the
Pennsylvania Coal Company, which
has branches throughout the Wy
oming coal field. This new road
would' have broken the control of
the railroad trust over freight rates.
The railroads in the coal combine
took' steps to throttle this competi
tor. The Temple Iron Company was
a Pennsylvania corporation that
operated furnaces at Reading, Pa.
It had nothing to do with coal min
ing. The coal roads bought con
trol of the company's stock. It had
a capital stock issue of $24o,ooo.
These railroad companies executed
and signed an agreement with one
another and bad the Guaranty
Trust Company of New York to
guanantee the stocks and bonds of
the following companies: Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western Railroad
Company, Centrel Railioad of New
Jersey, Reading Company, Lehigh
Valley Railroad (Jompany, New
York, Susquehanna and Western.
The purpose of this increase of
capital was to buy up the principal
independent coal mine operators
who were behind the new rival rail
The "The "American" will also
prove, for the sake of furnishing
concrete act3 of the trusts in viola- '
tion of the Sherman anti-trust law. "
that in March, i901, a meeting of
the Iron lempie Company's direc
tors was held, at which it was a
greed to maintain a uniform price
for coal mined in Pennsylvania,
transported from Pennsylvania to
New York and sold within the state
of New York, during the month of
April, 1901, the price per ton to be:
Grate, $4; egg, $4.25; stove, $4.50,
and chestnut, $4.50. Coal was sold,
according to this agreement,
throughout the month of April.
19ol. Theee prices were higher
than would have prevailed but foi
the excellence of the combinatioi
described, and higher than in tht
year previous. Like action, takei.
in April of this year, is also shown.
