The Authorities Fear Another Outbreak
This Afternoon-Miners Go Out
Cleveland, May 3. -Nine hundred
meu slept in the armories last night,
with bayoneted pen tries watching ready
to arouse them. There was no renewal
of rioting. The authorities fear an out
break today.' Three of the largest motor
' cars Imvebeen placed under orders of
the dim-tor of police.-" At It :30 a squad
of police under Captain Gates was sent
to NewLc;?, where large iron mills are
located, and where disorder was threat
ened. The Poles of that district met
last night and determined to raid the
.wire mills today. The military are in
readiness to go to the aid of the police,
should that force be inadequate to handle
the mob. The foreigners who compose
the disorderly element live in Kevrberg

dnriDg the winter made a large number
of converts among them.
Long before the earliest risers started
down town today the police had taken
possession of the public square. Little
knots of yesterday's rioters gathered
here and there, but were dispersed by
the police. The first trouble today was
at the Cleveland Spring Bed Company's,
where a gang attempted to drive out the
workmen. Patrol wagons full of officers
were dispatched to the scene, but the
crowd had already dispersed. While
Superintendent Allen, of the Standard
- foundry, and friends were driving to the
works, a volley of stones was thrown at
the carriage, which was badly battered.
A shot was fired from Casey bridge. A
crowd assembled about the works, com

different kinds of money shown him.

May day at this place -was observed
with due ceremony ' and enthusiasm.
The day - was one of those lovely May
days, marred only by being somewhat
cool, and the event was a signal success
for social enjoyment. The exercises
were opened by Rev. Brigham in a very
appropriate manner. An excellent pro
gram was rendered, consisting of recita
tions and readings, interspersed with
singing and music furnished by Miss
Annie Patterson, who acted as organist.
At the noon hoar a bountitul lunch was
spread, which all partook of with a
hearty good will. The 8-Mile school
children, under the supervision of their
teacher, Miss Hattie Hill, filled a prom

bearing and manner showed that they
were thoroughly drilled for the event.

NEGROES AS SOLDIERS.
General Lord Wolseley Pay the African
a High Compliment.
I do not think Europeans learn drill as
quickly as the Basuto or the Zulu. It is as
tonishing to see the zeal, the undisguised
interest and application these savages bring
to bear upon all military lessons Riven to
them, writes Lord Wolseley in the Fort
nightly Review. They take the utmost pride
in being soldiers-and in acquiring any art or
drill or exercise connected with the man
agement and handling of arms, or the move
ment of armed bodies. There seems to be
something in the disposition and genius of
ihe common stock from which thev come,
some nereaitary oias in tbeir Drain, in tneir
very blood, which fits them for the easy ac
quisition of a soldier's duties. And yet
many of these races who thus quickly ac
quire an excellence in drill, etc., can not be
taught any mechanical handicraft; indeed,'
many caa never even learn to draw a

who treated him well, which is so marked a
feature in the character of the negro slave.
Sis obedience to orders, especially when a
ientry, was remarkable. Many amusing
stories on this point were current at Gov
2rnment House when I was at Cape Coast
Castle. A previous Governor, finding that
ais native servants were given to robbing
aim by daily carrying away bundles of
things from his kitchen, had, orders given
a the sentry before his door that no one
was to be allowed out cariymg any parcel
auth him. JVery shortly afterward thoGov
3rnor, in a hurry to consult his Chief Jus
ice, put some papers into a dispatch-box to
:ako -with him to the judge's house. He
eckoned without his host, however, for the
ientry, standing in front of him with bayo
letatthe charge, would not allow him to
ass with the offending dispatch-box. The
Sovernor remonstrated, and urged that it
.vas he himself who had given the order,
ut all to no purpose, for in the quaint and
imusing gibberish which those men speak,
aid emphasizing bis words- in a very deter
nined fashion with his bayonet, the sentry
' aid that his "eopral" bad told him not to
. 'low any one with a bundle to pass, and
