dition. The train to which they were
attached passed through a cyclone and
hail storm near Tavrone, Mexico, Satur

that . the headlight of the engine and
every pane of glass on one side of the
train of cars ' was smashed. The roofs
were battered so hard that not a parti
cle of paint remained. ' Several persons
in the day coaches were injured and a
Mexican at Tavrone was killed. Pas

created great havoc.

"NEW YORK'S ITAtlAS PAPER.
It Comments Upon the Latent
patches From Komo.
New York, April 11. Le Cod Italia
has the following editorial :
"'It is now nearly i month since the
Italian government sent its first note to
the cabinet at Washington, asking for
equitable and immediate reparation for
tne Italian citizens cowardlv murdered
in New Orleans. Harrison and Blaine,
before our minister, who brought them
the formal and peremptory note of Mar
quis di Kudini, shed, in an admirable
duet of Americanized buffoonery, tears
of sorrow on the poor victims ; but they
Save no other satisfaction 'than presi
ential and ministerial tears. But the
treacherous tears, those of the American
ministers-included, are not current in
the Italian market. The most cunning
Blaine, havig.once dried up his obli
gatory tears, thought that the facts of
the New Orleans affair could be settled
in an easy and friendly manner. But
the New Orleans outrage could not be so
lightly put aside. The slaughter at New
Orleans and behavior of the Washington
government have raised "in all European
cabinets an awful question. The United
States signed treaties with us, but when
occasion came to put them into action
they said they were bound by private
engagements to their states. Can this
ambiguity and violation of government
last? All Europe has backed the note
of Marquis di Kudini. - A recent cable
dispatch has proved to the American
government that the Italian cabinet
is not joking, and that it is quite equal
to the occasion in this emergency. The
United btate must learn that to hold a
position amongst civilized nations it is
not enough to have millions of dollars,
but it is necessary as a first condition,
sine qua non, to be honest."
A LOCKOUT OBDEKED.
A Thousand Men, Women and Children
Thrown Out of Employment In '
San Francisco, April 11. -Seventy-five
contractors and builders met today to
consider what action should be taken in
regard to the proposed boycott of the
trades unions on the iron work 'manu
factured by non-union foundries. Reso
lutions were adopted protesting" against
the boycotts, and a committee was ap
pointed to effect a permanent organisa
tion of employers of labor to resist the
unreasonable demands ot trade unions
Besides this association of builders
another, combination of employers is be
ing tormed in tins city. Last week a
preliminary meeting was held at' which
over $100,000,000 capital was represented,
This association is being formed for the
Lpurpose of protecting employers against
the unjust demands ot labor unions, but
will .not touch the wage question. A
week ao the shoemakers in Buckingham
& Hecht's factory went on a strike be
cause the firm introduced a casting
machine. As no settlement could be
arrived at three other firms, Cahn, Mc
Keisburg & Co., Porter, Slessinger & Co.,
and Rosenthal, Feder & Co., comprising
the shoe manufacturers' association, to
night declared a lockout. One thousand
men, women and boys are thus thrown
out of employment. These, companies
comprise two-thirds of all the shoemakers
in the city. Factories will obtayi
necessary supplies from the east during
NEWS FKOM ASTORIA.
The Second Day's Salmon Catch In the
Astoria, Or., April 11. The second
day of the fishing season showed up a
little better than the first day, but the
result was far from satisfactory to most
of the fishermen. The boats in the bay
below the city came in about empty
handed, but those from up the river
sent in a very fair catch. The high boat
at Kinney's cannery had sixty-two fish,
but several of the boats came in without
a fish, and very few of them had more
than five or six. At Booth's high boat
they had forty-two fish, but the average
was less than five to the boat. Eighteen
and one-half salmon for high boat, with
one for low boat, was the record, at
George & Rarker's, and the other can
ners reported much the same success.
A prominent member of the Fisherman's
Union said that the reason for good
catches on the Oregon side above Astoria
was that the men had started out two or
three days before the beginning of the
season and had a supply on hand when
it started. It was hoped that the catch
es would be no heavier up above than
they were in the bay in front of the city
and down below as soon as the surplus
fish caught illegally were pent in. The
traps in Baker's bay are not catching
many fish, and the present indications
are that the April Vack will be a light
one. There was a big fleet of boats out
this morning and it looked like old times
as they all came scudding for home after
low water slack.
KELIGIOIIS ( MATTERS.
The Archbishop at St'. Louis to be Nom
inated for Cardinal.
St. Louis, Aprill. Within the next
four weeks the Rev. H. H. Brady, vicar
general, will issue a call for the Roman
Catholic archbishops and bishops of the
entire United States, together i with the
priesthood of the diocese, to assemble in
St. Louis primarily, to make arrange
ments for the golden jubilee of the Most
Rev. Peter Richards Kendrick, arch
bishop of St. Louis. But there is a still
more important action to be taken by
the high church officials upon this
occasion. It is understood that the for
mal nominating of the present venerable
archbishop for the . position of cardinal
will be made. Just in what way action
will be taken or the subject brought be
fore thedistinguished body is not yet
determined, but that it will come up for
consideration is' an acknowledged fact.

Tyranny of an Officer.
London. April 11. The renort of a
disturbance among the troops at Bresian
is confirmed, although denied officially.
The affair is said to have had its origin
in the outrageous tyranny of an officer of
the garrison, who cut a recruit down
with his sword , because he was not
prompt in saluting. This provoked mur
muring among the other recruits, and
the officer, seeing what he considered
signs of insubordination, ran among
them slashing right and left with his
sword. No one was fatally injffred, al
though several were hurt bad. enough to
be sent to the hospital. The officer was
not even put under arrest.
How the French Press Stands.
Paris, April llv In spite of the fact
that the French press for a few days dur
ing Italv-American imbroglio placed it
self uncfer the suspicion of favoring the
side of Italy in the hope that the Rome
government wonld injure itself and
of the. country by going to war with the
United States, Figaro prints a violent
article against England from the opposite
point ot view, llie article accuses Eng
land of being master of the art of egotist
ical and brutal policy in that she is now
covertly inciting Italy to war with
America in order that she may ascertain
the capacity of the Italian ironclads.

this often by ietsons of whom one would
expect-better tilings. For months after a
book is rend it is allowed to lie about the

turn it to its owner. That a book should
be returned as soon as read, just as partic
ularly as one would return a tool, after
using it or a garment after wearing it.
would appear to go without saying. Yet
it is not always the case.
And it is riht to insist that our children
shall be as exact in this respect; that they
shall, after borrowing a book, cover it
neatly if it lie a nicely bound one, treat it
carefully while in their possession and re
turn it promptly when finished. This is
not only simple justice to the owner, but
such teaching wilt go far toward making a

- Canine Fidelity.
We are wont to regard the dog as tha
perfect embodiment of fidelity, and on
the whole the good opinion of his char
acter1 has been justified. The saying of
the German pessimist that , he would
cease to believe in truth but for the as
surance of his dog's eye is a striking
tribute to the species. But even Ouida
herself, one supposes, would hardly
claim this excellence for every member
of the canine family. We are apt to
forget that the instinct of attachment
was developed comparatively late in the
history of the species. The dog is by
nature unattached and vagrant, and only
becomes attached and faithful by an in
fusion of human grace. Hence the comi
cal spectacle one 'sometimes sees in the
streets a well meaning bat misguided
youth attempting to keep a loosely in
clined pup close to his heels. And not
a few members of the species appear to
remain in this nnregenerate state in
mature years. Comhill Magazine,
