Guests at the Palmer House were regaled with a nerce not at their doar,-arfti- a-t all points the an" gry conmcis; 'went rorwara me first skirmishes of the teamster's strike, which is destined to be the worst labor struggle .in Chicagors history. There are now 3526 teams idle through the strike. . Chicago now laces a new peril--? that of having to walk; Owing to the strike of all coal" teamsters, the traction companies are unable to se cure coal to operate power plants. At the utmost, there is but three days' supply of coal, and then the cars must stop. -.-'.In addition the strike leaders are lending every ef fort to spread to all the smaller con certs. mis, u successful, wm snut off the food supplies of the resident ces. Tomorrow all ihe drivers for concerns supplying. feed for horses are expected ta be ordered out- " - Early today, the Federal sgovern ment stepped into the BtriiVand is sued injunction against the strik ers interfering with traffic. At about the same time many soldieis began to appear on the streets without arms. Orders have been iEued by commanders of regiments of state troops to their men to bold themselves ready for immediate call. Express companies are bring ing in from Western points all their old, tried "penay riders' and: moun tain men, with rifles in their wag ons. ' " The great aim of the strike lead ers now is to embroil the railroad unions, in which event other cities will begin to feel the strike. "Wait until next Tuesday," is the omi nous warning of the labor leaders. "Sd far there has been child's play. Next Tuesday there will ba busi ness." No one appears to know what this means, although there is fear that some tremendous sensa tion will be sprung. The water and gas plants are be ing well guarded, and men constant ly patrol the lines of the great sub way, 40 feet under the (streets, to guard against possible dynamiting. Strike leaders today said they would permit, funerals? to pass the lineB unmolested, providing the drivers and carriages are unionized. As soon as the injunction was is sued, copies or it were printed on large cards and two 9 these were attacned to every wagon of the Employer's Teaming Company which went upon the streets today. Twelve arrests were made for in terference with injunction, all of them being made at one time and piace. At 1:30 0 clock thi3 after noon two wagons loaded with coal approached the Union League Club, on Jackson Boulevard, and when they attempted to drive into the narrow alley east of. the clubhouse to unload the nonunion teamsters were attacked by a crowd of strike sympathizers and a lively fight en sued. The wagons were plainly marked with copies of the -injunction, and the police in charging the mob, arrested 1 2 strikers, who are now confined in the Harrison po lice station. When news of the injunction reached President Shea, of the Teamster's Union, he issued the fol lowing order, "signed by "the com mittee of teamsters' business agents: 'To All Union Teamsters: Per mit no violation of the peace under any circumstances. Competent drivers cannot be secured to handle the teams in Chicago, and violence will not help us m this strike. Be DEATH IN ITS PATH WHOtE TOWN ON MEXICAN V BORDER BLOWN TO ATOMS.

Norman Williams and George Lauth will suffer death on the gallows lor the murder of women whom they pro fessed to love. Williams killed Al ma Nesbit in Wasco county in 1900. Lauth killed Leonora Jones in Clackamas county in 1904. : The supreme court today handed down opinions affirming the judg m?nt of death passed by the lower courts. Williams is at The Dalles, and will be hanged there, his crime having been committed prior to the passage of the act providing for ex ecutions at the penitentiary. Lauth i3 at the penitentiary, and will be hanged there. Norman Williams wa3 tried be fore Judge W, L. Bradshaw, of Wasco county. No evidence was offered in his behalf, his sole con tention being that the "prosecution had failed to prove that Alma Nes bitt "was dead. The jury found against himy however, end on ap peal the Bupreme court holds the same. ' The supreme court Says that at one time the rule prevailed that a conviction of murder or manslaugh ter could not be sustained without direct proof of the killing, unless the body ' of the supposed : victim had been found. Numerous cases are quoted to show how this rule has gradually been abandoned, and the better rule, that the corpus de licti may be proven by circumstan tial evidence, established. Blocks for chimneys at Whitney's. Laredo, Tex., April'29. At least 21 persons were killed and a score injured in Laredo and New Laredo by a tornado that tore through the city late last night. Sixteen were killed here. Rumors of many oth erB killed in places outside Laredo are heard, but as yet they lack con hrmation. f roperty damage is large.; Four of the dead are mem bers of one family and were work ing on the ranch of George Wood man; -Thev were all crushed " to death by the falling in of the heavy walls of the adobe house they occu pied, v" The others met their - fate in a similar manner. ." : , . The damage wrought at the La redo Seminary is severe. - wot one of the group of buildings that go to make up the. institution escaped damage. "The , escape "from ' death of the teachers at present quartered m the institution is considered mi raculous; as the walls of some of the buildings : that they - occupied were demolished. Mrs. Early, one of the teachers, ; was heroically re ecued by several young cadets, etu dents of the institution, they lower ing her by a' rope from ' a second' story window. She was badly bruised. , ' - The-Msxican I National Hospita building roof was lifted, and it will require much time to repair the building., " e ' A trip through the town, fails to show a locality that has not suffer ed from the storm, ielegjaph and Telephone poleB, corrugated " roofs, chimneys and walls: in fact, debris of all imaginable kinds "strew th streets. The city authorities are at work clearing away the wreckage! of the storm, and tonight trie city began to assume its tranquil ap pearance. Linemen , are at work trying to straighten outthe tangled wires, and it is believed that within two days the electric light service can ba resumed. It is hoped to re establish telegraphic communica tion at least partially within two days. '-. Conditions at New Laredo, across the river, are similar to those on this side. It is not known how many dead or injured there are, but a city official of that . place, stated that there are at least five dead. The etorm made its appearance from the southwest in the neigh borhood of Lampas, Mexico, 72 miles from this city, and it is saH that great havoc was wrought in that locality, although it is not thought any loss of life resulted. When the etorm struck the city the houses occupied by the poorer classes were the first to be leveled to the around, but, as the wind in-4 creased in lorce, the more substan tial buildings were unroofed, and In many cases : wsre demolished The lighting flashed vividly and continually, adding to the feais of the people. The storm lasted about an hour. The Mexican National railroad has temporarily abandoned its trains on account of the lack of wires, over which to arrange meet irig pointB. ' " Pbveicians are busy attending the injured and it is thought no deaths will result. Dr. H. J. Ham ilton, oi the United States Marine Hospital service, has placed 150 tents with bedding, etc., at the dis posal of the homeless. - - The weather on Friday was sul trv, and shortly alter ? o clock in the evening a dark low rain-cloud appeared in the southwest. A short time later and with hardly any warning rain began falling in tor rents, accompanied occasionally by hall. The conditions previous to the storm were so remarkable that a vast majority of-the citizens lock ed themselves in their houses, the entire Mexican population being terror-strick6n and becoming im pressed with the idea that the world was coming to an end. Suddenly a flash of lightning lit up the scene, showing clouds hang ing low over the housetops. A wind began to blow, the lightning in a few minutes played almost con- ' tinuously, and thunder roared over the city like ; a thousand batteries pounding out a mighty : chorus. -Trees begaa to bend under the- , strengthening wind.' Over the.heart," of the city was carried the roof of a negro's but from the 1 suburbs. - A group of men saw the roof beings spun along as" if by a giant hand, ' and the lightning and thunder seemed.to combine in a magnificent ; climax, . - . - Houses were swept away ae if they were structures of pasteboard. Substantial stone structures " were . razed, frame houses were caught up , in the swirling storm and torn to : pieces. Koois were carried , away. trees were torn out ; by the roots.," Telephone poles were snapped, wag- v ons were picked out of the streets and. carried beyond the city limit?. 1 ihe huts occupied by negroes and the poorer Mexicans first were de stroyed.. Nearly all of them were blown flat, but many of them : were -lifted like huge beehives and carri- ed miles, ihe wind whipped - the roof off the telephone building and, reaching down into the structure, . caught the big exchange and whirl ed it around the - operating room.' The exchange was found ; upside ; down and in ruins. The telephone - . officials report that it will be neces sary to install a new sjstem. . " The business firms in the center hef the city have suffered great los- sss. 1 he roofs were taken off half -. a dozen buildings occupied by gro cery and drygoods firms and enorr mous damage waa done to stocks, , The roofs of the Hamilton and Ross - hotels, two of the most pretentious -buildings in the city, were torn to pieces and 51) patrons ned into the city streets in fright. The rooms in the hotels were covered, with many inches of water. Gov. Lanham was appealed to by Mayor Sanchez, of Laredo, for aid. In response he issued a gen-, eral appeal for help, expressing the : wish that Texas in general would be liberal-and prompt in its help. At KihgsVaney. . - , : ; ,.
