RIOTING IS RESUMED
Chicago Police Resort to Clubs
to Preserve Peace.
BUILDING TRADES ARE INVOLVED
N o Prospect o f Immediate Settlement
and Mayor and Peace Com
mittee Give Up Hope.
Chicago, May 27.— Rioting broke out
afresh today in the teamsters’ strike,
and although nobody was seriously
hurt, there were a number of vicious
tights in the lumber district, during
which the police were compelled to use
th eir clubs, and in one instance revolv
ers, in order to disperse the mob.
The strike today spread in a small
degree throughout the building trades.
There were a number of instances
where woodworkers refused to receive
th e material delivered by non-union
teamsters and walked out. This move
in every instance was made by the men
as individuals only. No official action
was taken by any of the trades unions
looking to the active sympathetic sup
port of the teamsters’ Btrike.
o f the labor leaders in the ranks of the
material trades have declared within
the last 24 hours that there is no pros
pect in their opinion, of any complete
tie ni of the building trades by a strike
of the men.
There is no movement at present
looking towards a settlement of the
strike. Mayor Dunne today for the
first time since the commencement of
the teamsters’ strike declared that he
knew of no contemplated plans for
peace. The mayor talked as though he
had abandoned hopes of a settlement.
Dever, chairman of the City Council
Peace committee, appointed a week ago,
said tonight that he had practically
ceased work, as the committees could
see no avenue in the controversy look
ing toward an adjustment of the differ
ences between the teamsters and the

Panama, May 27. — Hezekiah A.
Gudger, judge of the canal zone, this
morning administered the oath of office

canal zone, in the Ancon district. The
ceremony took place in the presence of
President Amador and the cabinet, the
diplomatic and consular corps and
prominent native and foreign residents.
Governor Magoon, in his inaugural
speech, said the reorganization of the
canal commission had resulted in the
centralization of authority and transfer
of power from Washington to Panama,
permitting the putting of more energy
into the work.
Regarding the work

effort and no expense would be spared
to make the zone healthy.

San Francisco, Cal., May 26.— E. G.

where he is to start the enormous re

for which the sum of $4,400,000 has

There is to be little delay in the be

Mr. Perkins is going north to look over
the ground and commence operations.
According to estimates of engineers
there is embraced in Klamath basin 5,-
505 acres of public lands and 42,825
acres of private lands, making a total
of 48,330 acres. The valleys of I.angell,

It is only within the past few years
that the cattlemen have attempted to
cultivate that land. For years it was
given over to the pasturing of stock and
the only feed that was given the cattle
during the winter months was from the

Chairman o f Commission Says Sup

Chicago, May 25. — Paul Morton,
secretary of the navy, and Theodore P.
Shonts, chairman of the Panama Canal
commission, were the guests of the
Chicago Bankers’ club at a banquet
Mr. Morton was asked to respond to
the toast of “ The President,” and after
expressing his pleasure at dc ing able
to meet the members of the Bankers’
club, he said of President Roosevelt:
“ He is, taken all in all, one of the
most remarkable of all the great men
who have occupied the W hite house.
As earnest in his love of country as
Washington, as far-seeing as Jefferson,
as courageous as Jackson, and as much
opposed to human slavery in all forms
as Abe Lincoln, he stands robust in
his integrity and sturdy in his deter
mination that there shall Ire a ‘ square
deal all around.’ ”
Mr. Shonts said:
“ Congress, for
some reason unknown to us, although
twice asked to declare its wishes, failed
to lim it the purchase of materials and
supplies entering into the construction
of the canal to the American markets.
Whatever the absence of the instruc
tions from congress, the commission
feels it is its duty to make its pur
chases in whatever markets of the
world it can buy cheapest.
icy it is pursuing, and, inasmuch as it
is getting the great mass of its sup
plies in American markets, the infer
ence is plain that, notwithstanding our
protective laws and notwithstanding
our high wages to labor, the American
markets are in the main the cheapest
markets in the world.”
