RIOT AT JCOTTDALE
A Fierce Fisht Occurs Between Strik
ers and Deputies.
SIXTEEN PEOPLE REPORTED SHOT
Great Excitement Throughout the. En
tire Coke RegionFoul Air
Killed Three People.
Scottdalk, Pa., May 4. A riot oc
curred at the Painter works of the Mc
Clnre Coke Company, at 6 o'clock this
morning. The company made an effort
to start this and other plants Tuesday,
and today the women determined to
drive the "blacklegs" from work with
tin pau, clubs, coke forks and brooms.
They m ehed to the cokeyards.. San
ford White, the mine ' superintendent,
Ewing B. Roddy, a bookkeeper, and a
lot of deputies were on guard. A shot
was fired to scare the women and the
men rushed to the scene. White opened
fire on a crowd that numbered over 100.
At the first fire three men fell, wounded,
one shot through the thigh, one through
both legs and the third in the rock.
The women carried off the wound, .i and
the infuriated men set upon White und
Roddy, White was beaten over the
head, knocked down and kicked and
bruised about' the body. His recovery
is doubtful. A big Hungarian had
White down and was Btanding over him
with an ax, when he was knocked down
by James Tarr, a store clerk. Roddy
was at first thought to be badly injured,
but he escaped with only slight bruises.
While all this was going on the deputies
shot' one woman, who is said to be dy
ing. It is now believed at least sixteen
were shot. There is great excitement
throughout the entire region. The
strikers are becoming desperate and
mobs are assembling -at various points
to raid the plants.
Three Were Asphyxiated.
Plkasant Hill, Mo., May 4. Two
sons and a daughter of Samuel Gammon,
who lives near Cockrell, in Jackson
county, were killed yesterday by foul air
while cleaning a well. The eldest of the
boys went down in the well and was
asphyxiated. The younger brother went
to his rescue, and he, too, was poisoned.
Thelatter's wife became hysterical when
she saw that her husband was dead,
jumped into the well, and in a few min
utes was also dead.
Fight UTer Bnried Trea.sa.re.
City ok Mexico (via Galveston), May
4. The people of Toluca, in the state of
Mexico, have related for years a story to
the effect that a great treasure was
' buried on the Jalpa ranche, near the
town. Monday a laborer on the ranche
found just under the surface a large flat
stone, with . the inscription, "Five mil
lion dollars are buried here," and the
owner of the ranch began digging for
the money. - The people of Toluca
claimed the treasure was theirs, and the
town authorities forbade him to dig fur
ther. Both the town and the ranch
owner set watchers where the stone was
fonnd. The work of excavating has
been stopped and each side is ready to
fight. Troops have been sent to Toluca
to preserve peace.

ing, of this city, today , addressed a
letter to General Coxey,. stating that he
bad 60 acres of land at Columbia Park,
3i miles from the city, from which he
wished to have the trees and under
brush removed and streets 'opened up.
He offered the park as a camping place
and agreed to pay General Coxey $500 for
the useof the army for the desired work,
which would ' take several weeks "to
accomplish. ' The offer was made in good
faith and the industrial leader was in
clined to accept, but the crowd was un
willing to move their camp so far from
Washington, so the offer was declined.

GOOD WORDS FOR TI1E CAUSE;
Senators and Representatives in Favor
of Bimetal Ism.
Washington, May 4. Senators and
representatives who assisted in the
repeal of the Sherman act express them
selves in hearty sympathy with the bi
metallic movement in England. Sena
tor Hill said : "I joined in the dispatch
to the bimetalists in England because I
desired to encourage them in an earnest
effort to promote the cause of a double
standard. The best thinkers and the
best writers, the best statesmen and the
best financiers, are gradually but surely
realizing the fact that a single standard
of gold means the impoverishment of
the people everywhere, and some inade
quate relief from the present conditions
is essential. There are some indications
that English sentiment is now drifting
toward bimetaliero. It is the duty of
this government to pursue a course
which will hasten the day when bimetal
ism will be an accomplished fact. If the
present administration does not shape
its ruling in that direction, the people
will select one that will. Bimetalisrn by
international agreement, or independ
ently if necessary, is to be the great issue
of the future."
Senator Allison said: "The confer
ence in London is significant as respects
the membership and the strong utter
ances favoring the full use of silver as
money. I have faith the growing senti
ment in favor of the lull use of silver
will find expression at the election in
England, Scotland and Ireland when
dissolution takes place.'- -m
Senator Voorhecs and Representative j
Bland also -express hearty sympathy
with the movement.
COINED BY BRIG HAM YOUNG.
Five-Dollar Gold Pieces Which Are Son
Rarities Too Soft for Use.
County Commissioner Ballard, of San
Francisco, is the possessor of a rare and
curious gold coin which fell into hif
hands in California in 1849. It is t
Mormon five-dollar piece, and for many
years has been employed as a charm di
bangle on Mr. Ballard's fob chain. Th
owner himself . was a '49er, and took
part in the early gold excitement :
California. He told a New York Re
corder man that the Mormons, whe
were among the earliest in the gold
fields, returned to Salt Lake with great
quantities of the precious yellow dust.
Much gold also found its way to Utah
through other avenues. Brighom Young,
who was at that time running a little
government on his own account, estab
lished a mint and 'coined probably one
million dollars in five-dollar gold pieces.
These coins very soon . found their way
to California and passed current. At
that early date, Mr. Ballard says, the
coins were welcomed ' as a great
convenience in matters of exchange.
The metal in the coins was unalloyed
so soft and pure, in fact, that it wore
away very rapidly. On this account
they soon disappeared from circulation
almost as rapidly as they had appeared.
On one side of Mr. Ballard's relic are
two clasped hands, probably symbolic
of brotherly love, while around the
margin are the letters, "G. S. L. C. P.
G.,n standing for "Great Salt Lake Cal
ifornia Pure Gold." Below the clasped
hands are the words, "five dollars," and
the date "1849." On the other side, in
the center of the coin ia the all-seeing
eye, and below that a bet-hive, while
around the margin are these words,
"Holiness to the Lord." Mr. Ballard
has had some trouble in keeping his coin.
Once he accidentally lost the keepsake,
but was lucky enough to find it again.
Another time a thief got into his house
and took all the money from his pocket
book except this odd-looking coin,
which, at a glance, resembles a trunk
check. This was more than twenty years
ago. Mry Ballard then attached it to
his moroeep fob chain, which is anchored
to an old-fashioned silver watch the
movement of which is also dated 1849.
Another of these rare coins is preserved
in the National museum at Washington.

lie "Was Something of a Liar Himself M
His Story Proved.
He was a quiet-looking, elderly man
in a pastoral sort of black bloadclotb
suit and a broad brim, such as are worn
by "colonels" and "majors.". Next to
him in the car sat two young men who
were telling stories about personal
experiences on the road. One of them
related with much gusto an encounter
which he had recently had with a des
perate western man, the weapons being
cards, says the Pittsburgh Dispatch. ;
- The game was poker, the special oc
casion was that old familiar "big jack
pot" wliich so often figures in profane
history and two principals were armed

"and we lct sixty-seven times and then
I called him. He had a sequence flush,
queen high, and I had one king high.
You should have heard him swear." I
noticed that the old man listened with
great attention to the story and at itf
conclusion he exclaimed with much as
tonishment: "You called him!" Th
youngster blushed and acknowledged

"Well, well:" said the old man, shak

. riPctrU'lty i:t Warfare. "-" -,
A clever piece of work wes recently
done by the telegraph battalion of an
English regiment in the course' of some
night experiments. Vn extensive cable
was rapidly laid over the roughest pos
sible ground, anil that, tbo, without
the slimiest rissistanee from search
lights, and the lieutenant general was
thus enabled not only to find a lost
brigade, but to control th-j simulta
neous advance and s..ia-k of three sep
arated brigades oa .:va. earthwork - at
midnight. The telegraph, in fact, ren
dered a most difficult and doubtful op
eration comparatively easy and certain..
At some late maneuvers, too, a highly
useful attempt was rjade to produce on
a map at headquarters a plan of battle,
step by stop, as it progressed many
miles away, by means of reports wired
from the field. The attempt did not
succeed because tho maps tjvailable
were not on a sufficient scale; but the
feasibility of the plan was demonstra
ted, while its value to a perioral direct
ing operations over a wide field is ob
vious. With large soale maps, i bal
loon and increased observing staff, it is
likely to be made a most important aid
to the strategist and the tactician.
