A Woman Burned to Death in
Simoxtown, Penn., May 4. Last night
superintendent Gray ' and a pit boss of
Leisingring No. 3, went to rescue two
men who had been working and were
being held as prisoners by strikers.
They were set upon and stoned. When
.the deputies came to their aid a shot was
fired by the strikers. Superintendent
Gray then-ordered the deputies to fire
and in a volley which followed, John
Mayan, a striker, fell dead and another
received a mortal wound. The situation
is now reported quiet.
Uniontown, May 4. Labor people are
in a state of excitement over what they
term the cold-blooded murder of one of
their number at Leisingring No. 3, last
John McSloy, a member of the execu
tive board, has just arrived from Dunbar
where he swore out warrants for the
arrest of Superintendent Gray, yard boss
and pit boss Callaghan and two Pin
kerton guards, charging them with the
murder of a man named Mahan.
Arrests will be made this afternoon.
McSloy said that the shooting was en
tirely uncalled for. Strikers were only
jeering Superintendent Gray and party
over their failure to get the men to re
turn to work, when the Pinkerton guards
opened fire on the strikers with Win
chester rifles, killing Mahan and wound
ing another man.
Labor people are swearing- vengeance
and more trouble may follow within the
next few' hours.

The coroner has been notified and
will investigate at Bradford.
Sheriff McCormick made twenty-eight
evictions this morning. . He reported
that there was trouble and ' that a num
ber of deputies were roughly handled.
At Leisingring No 8, the men are bet
ter armed than at any point in the re
gion. They have been drilled for three
weeks. Such preparations look war
like and further trouble is feared in the
Coke operators report an increased
number of men work at the various works
in the region.
A dispatch from Dunbar tells a dif
ferent story about last night's shooting.
It is in effect that Gray, Callaghan and
Agrew, all bosses, escorted Mahan to
work and the deputies mistaking them
for rioters opened fire upon them, killing
Mahan instantly. (

special says: "The outlook now is that
the close season will be declared "by the
United States government and the North
American Co. won't have any catch this
year. If it shuts out its own lessees, the
government may be counted to make
short work of the poachers regardless of
the feelings of the Canadians, but there
is no ground on which the British gov
ernment could refuse help in this work
and its co-operation will be offered with
a view to showing ' that the United
States is reallv in earnest."

London, May 'J. Cardinal Manning
granted an interview to your correspond
ent on the subject of the forthcoming
papal encyclical on the labor question.
His eminence stated that the promulga
tion of the encyclical had been delayed
by the condition of the pope's health
and other impediments, and would
probably not be made before the end of
the present month. The cardinul ad
mitted that he he had been very inti
mately consulted by his holiness on the
subject treated of in the encyclical, and
he had been permitted to read in ad
vance a draft of the composition substan
tially as it will be laid before the public,
and he could confidently declare it to be
one most important documents ever is
sued from the Vatican. It is of great
length and discusses all phases of the
labor problem. The tone is sympathetic
and temperate. Cardinal Manning ex
presses his conviction that it will prove
to be a beacon of hope, not only to Cath
olic workingmen and their employers,
but to the masses at large, irrespective
of sect or creed. The cardinal, in allud
ing to the royal labor commission, which
held its first session today, rejoiced in
the opportunity afforded through this
body of obtaining the practical recom
mendations of the leading representa
tives of capital and labor, which could
not fail to result in benefit to all inter
ested in a satisfactory solution of the all
His Friends Think a Fresh Surprise is
London, May 2. Mr. Parnell, who
was at one time particularly frank as to
his views and plans, has of late become
extremelv- reticent, even in dealing with
his friends. He will give no informa
tion, either as to his future action on
the Irish land 'bill, or as to the campaign
in Ireland. The change in his demeanor
is so marked that it has caused an im
pression that he is contemplating some
fresh surprise. ,It is said Mr. Parnell
will only continue in anything like con
stant attendance in parliament until one
or two of the more important amend
ments to the land bill have been disposed
of, and will then leave the measure to
his friends in the house, and personally
re-commence his agitation in Ireland,
possibly to contest Cork against Maurice
Not Afraid of the Tariff.
London, May 2. One of the largest
makers of tin plate in Wales has refused
to join the proposed movement for a
general stoppage of production. He
alleges that the proposition is a fool
hardy one and declares that the recent
democratic victories in the United States
have shown that the new tariff is an un
stable thing. This being so, it is not
likely he thinks that capitalists will put
much money in American tin-plate
manufacture. Even should the Ameri-
! cane go into the business, he says they
wuuiu unu it lmpossiDie to mane oti,um.i
tons per annum, as had been claimed,
and would be doing well if they suc
ceeded in producing 60,000 boxes yearly.
The Welsh newspapers generally are
opposed to the shutting down.
Kobert Kajr Hamilton Again.
Cheybnnk, Wyo., May 2. Thos.
Cooper, a guide just in from Jackson's
Hole, revives the story of the suspicious
circumstances in connection with Robert
Ray Hamilton's death. - He says no
identification of the body has ever been
attempted, and that many people of that
vicinity believe a body from some
medical college was shipped there,
dressed in Hamilton's clothes and
dumped in the river, with the circum
stantial evidence carefully planned to
make it apparently a reliable story of
Left Oakland in a Huff.
' Oakland, Cal., May 2. President
Harrison left town in a 'huff. When he
got off the train at West Berkelev he
grumblinglv remarked that he "didn't"
propose to be hawked around through
every little one-horse town in the coun
try." Later, when he arrived at Lin
coln square and saw the path to the
platform blocked, he declared that if he
was chief or police he would see that
the streets were clear. Then turning to
the driver he commanded him to drive
to the pier as fast as possible, so that he
could catch the boat for San Francisco.
He Will Probably Die.
Oakland, Cal., May 2. Rev. George
W. Bothwell, of Brooklyn, N. Y., who
is likely to die with the cork of a medi
cine bottle in his lungs, was for some
time pastor of the Second Congregational
church, of West Oakland. Mr. - Both
well came to Oakland a little over two
years ago from New Orleans. About a
year ago, and after over a year's service
in Oakland, he resigned and went east,
and about the first of this year was
called to the position he now occupies.

Wheeling, W. Va., May 2. At Mar

He is Their Friend.
It is a' wretchedly mistaken notion
with some people that the local mer
chants is their enemy that he cares
nothing for their prosperity, and only
strives to fill his own coffers with money.
The local merchant should be, and is,
the friend of his customers. He should
be, and is, interested in their welfare
both socially and financially. This fact
is so self-evident that it needs no argu
ment. Upon the prosperity of his cus
tomers depends his own prosperity.
Those who are wont to imagine things of
this sort regarding the local merchant
ought to sit down and calculate about
how many times the local merchant has
befriended 'them when they were in
straightened circumstances ; how many
times they have asked said merchant to
sell them goods that they almost bad to
have on time, and then "ask themselves
if they paid for those goods strictly ac
cording to promise. Now, gentle read
er, we know of a merchant who reallj
and truly does not care one whit for
your prosperity. The store-keeper we
refer to lives in some distant city, and.
is in the habit of sending you sweetly
worded circulars about how cheap are
his goods, etc. That man don't want to
see you, never expects to see you, and
doesn't care whether or not you burn
out or die tonight. Better think better
of your home-dealer. He is a necessity,
and a very handy one to have around

We have it from the best authority
that the wizard of Wall street prays, and
when he prays at all, it is as follows :

Now comes the Portland Telegram
with an appeal that the new cruiser be
named Portland. It won't do. The
Oregon and Maine cities' would always
be disputing over the honor, and nobody
imagines for a moment' that the secre
tary of the navy would allow the vessel
to be dubbed the "Portland, Oregon."
In the name of euphony, and peace, The
Review repeats its suggestion that the
cruiser be named after this city. The
Spokane is a swift and beautiful river ;
the racer Spokane was a fleet and noble
horse ; the city of Spokane is always at
the front, and it would be beautifully
appropriate to name that swift cruiser
