THE CHEAT STRIKE.
The Strikers Destroy Many Coke Ovens
and Railroad Track.
PiTrsBCKG, March 30. Nearly a thou
sand strikers attacked Frick's coke works
at Moorewoqd at two o'clock this morn
ing, and destroyed the coke oven and
railway track. The mob broke in the
windows of several houses. Several of
the raiders have been arrested . Riots are
also reported at Leisenring and Leith.
A considerable property has been des
troyed. There is great excitement
throughout the coke country, and. ser
ious trouble is apprehended. The
troublers assumed a new phase ahd now
threaten to develop into a war between
operators and labor organizations.
Frick stated today as heretofore, that he
has not antagonized labor, but in the fu
ture h did not propose to stand idly by
and see his property destroyed.
Dispatches from Scottdale says there
is rioting at large. A large number of
the coke plant mob of 1500 infuriated
strikers swept down on the Jimtown
plant today and routed the workmen
assaulted several men and threatened
the superintendent's life.
A bomb was set off at the west Leis
senring mine and the men are notified
not to go to work.
The Leith works near Uniontown were
also raided and workmen put to flight.
Labor leaders are trying to allay the ex
citement as other raids are feared. Frick
coke company officials here have notified
the sheriffs to increase their forces.

EVOltTIOS OF MODERN ARMS.
A New Gun Fzperlrnented Upon Which
Proves to be a Superior Weapon.
New Yobk, March 28. A new wire
gun, invented by John Hamilton Brown,
in this city, was tested today at Fort
Wadsworth by navy and armv officials.
All present expressed themselves satis
fied that ths new gnn was an improve
ment on others that have been produced
iu this country. The new invention is
essentially a wire in an inner tube, made
up of numerous steel segments, which is
wound with steel wire at a tention of
276,000 pounds to the square inch. This
so compresses the segments that no pos
sible power or pressure will open the
inner surface of the tube. In winding
the wire a tension regulator is employed
by means of which the tension at which
the wire is wound is brought to one
tenth of an ounce of uniformity
throughout the entire mass. Finally
completed, the gun is bored out to re
ceive the lining tube. This tube is only
inserted to protect the cone. At the
first discharge the gun was charged with
two pounds and eight ounces of powder,
the result of the pressure being 4500
pounds to the square inch. For the sec
ond test three pounds and an ounce of
powder was used. Close calculation
placed the pressure at 10,000 pounds to
the square inch. This places the capac
ity of the Brown gun far above any of
the big guns now in use.
THE NEW FOUNDI.AND QUESTION.
The London Papers Denounce the Affair
as a. Paltry Lobster Row.
London, March 28. The New Found
lond question grows hotter and hotter
as each new controversialist enters the
scene. Sir Charles Dilke's article in the
Spectator supporting the claims of New
Foundland and upholding the acts of
the colonists has created a real sensa
tion and raised a storm of opposition.
The majority of the morning papers pro
test vigorously against it, as making too
mncn oi a minor issue, ana needlessly
weakening the government in its deal
ings with France. They denounce the
whole affair as a paltry lobster row, and
advise the government to pursue its
course regardless of the claims and pro
tests of the colonists. They want to
know if Sir Charles is prepared to follow
the consequences of his article and face
a war with France? The Spectator
calmly reviews the situation. It admits
that the colonists have cause for anger.
Suffering nnder a grievance of 200 years
standing, the iron has entered their
souls. England must do something to
satisfy their just demands.
VICTIMS OF LA GRIPPE.
The Weekly Death-Roll of Chicago Will
Show Nearly One Thousand Persons
Chicago, March 28. The grippe
appears to be on the increase in the city,
being favored by the extremely disagree
able weather prevailing for some time
past. The death-roll for the six days of
this week ended tonight reached a total
of 920, and the figures for the week will
be higher than ever known in the history
of Chicago. - Last week the total was 809,
and that was looked upon as abnormally
large. All branches of business are in
convenienced by illness among the em
ployes. The police and fire departments
and street car lines also have many men
laid up. By far the larger portion of
deaths reported are due to pulmon
ary trouble, for the most part result
ing from the grippe. Several physicians
have died within a few days. This
morning Dr. Charles T. Parks, a physi
cian and surgeon widely known, and
who for years has been prominently con
nected with medical colleges and hos
pitals here, died of the pneumonia fol
lowing an attack of the grippe.
Nothing Yet Definitely Arranged as to
What Time he Will Come.
Sas Francisco, March 28. W. W.
Stone, who has charge of the Grand
Army May day excercises, has received
the "following letter, dated March 21,
from President Harrison's private secre
'The president directs me to acknowl
edge the receipt of your letter of the 15th
inst. He contemplates making a trip to
the Pacific coast, but has not yet ar
ranged any of the details, and cannot say
now whether he will be in San Francisco
May 1, or not. The trip will necessarily
be a hurried one, and his movements
during his stay at San Francisco will be
governed largely by the local committees.
As soon as anything definite is decided
upon it will be made public through the
Betrayed By a Friend.
Tacoma, March 28. George E. Par
sons, of San Franoisco, came to this city
last fall at the solicitation of Frank
Athel, an old schoolmate, in the hope
that he could get some employment to
support himself and two little children.
Athel took him to his home,' where he
remained for several months. In Athel's
home lived his mother and young step
sister, Grace West. Parsons was a
Soung, pleasant fellow, and Grace a
andsome girl of 17, full of life. The
two soon became companions at evening
amusements. Grace knew that Parsons
was a married man with two children,
but nevertheless she fell in love with
him and he presumably her. George is
now in the county jail, charged with the
seduction of the girl, and she is reported
to be in a delicate condition. The war
rant for Parsons' arrest was sworn out
by the step-brother, but without the
knowledge or consent of the girl, as she
claims that he promises her to get a
divorce from his wife in California and
marry her. In default of $1000 bail he
was connnea in tne county jail to await
trial before Justice Sharp on Tuesday
afternoon next. "
Snow in March a Phenomenon.
San Francisco, March 28. The crest
of Mount .Diablo, 3850 feet above tne sea,
was covered with snow this morning.
This is a phenomenal occurrence.
A Murderer Said to Re Liable to
Fargo, N. D., March 28. It is pos
sible that the trial of Joseph Remington
for the murder of J. T. Flett, may be
come one of the most famous in the
United States. As the case at present
stands it will be almost impossible to
convince any jurv of his innocence on
the ground of insanity, or any of the
common pleas. Hence", it is almost a
settled fact that the defense will be on
the same line as that in the trial of
Gabrielle Bompard in Paris last year,
Where it was claimed, and so clearly
proven a case of hypnotism, that her
accomplice was sentenced to death and
she received a term' of imprisonment.
The theorv in Remington's case, it is
understood, will be that he was hvpno-
tized by the Minneapolis woman, whose
name has been so freqently mentioned.
Since the murder of Acent Flett compet
ent authorities, who have visited Rem
ington in jail with this theorv in view.
are of the opinion that he is so consti
tuted as to be liable to mesmeric influ
ence. Should this line of defence be
adopted it will probably be the first of
the kind in the United States.
Wholesale Arrest of Indians.
Wilcox, Arizona, March 30. Nine
prominent Apaches were arrested during
the last forty-eight hours and placed in
irons at San Carlos. Among the prison
ers is old Chief Eskimizene, called "Skill
niy'! for short. The first five prisoners
were arrested for the murder of a white
man years ago, but Eskimizene and the
other three were apprehended for giving
help to "Tokio" the notorious renegade
and murderer, who has thus far defied
and eluded the authorities and for whose
capture the government has expended
thousands of dollars.
Japanese Laborers for Guatemala.
San Francisco, March 28. It was re
cently stated that Japanese were flocking
away from their native island, and that
California was receiving more than her
share of them. Advices from Guatema
la just received report a scarcity of labor
ers there and that an agent of the Guate
malan government had been sent to
Japan to obtain 1500 Japanese to work on
the coffee plantations.
The Supreme Court Decides on an Impor
Washington, March 30. The supreme

A passenger car left the track this

little delay and the track was again clear
for the west-bound passenger which ar

The sheep-raising industry, with all
its risks, has never before had such a
promising future. But it is harder to go
into it now, because of the high price of
the animal. To procure a sufficient band
would take a large sum but those who
are in the' business must be careful to
stay in, for they have before them a
rapid fortune by the certain increase of
the price not only of the meat but also
the wool of their animals. Grant Coun
