Uniontown, Peon., May 24. A ter
rific riot occurred at Stickle Hollow, in
the coke region this morning, possibly
one of the worst In the history of the
trouble. Shortly before midnight, two
thnusaud rioters assembled attheBtick
ley Hollow plants of the Washington
Company. Some were armed, but the
majority were not. They went into
camp near the plant. At 3 o'clock they
adjourned to the public road, over
which the workmen would have to
pass. They stopped the tlrst delegation
of miners, who.after a little persuasion,
turned back. At this moment the dep
uties were ordered to shoot, at a range
of about fifty yards. At the first vol
ley the strikers ran in every direction.
The deputies fired two more volleys
and were shooting wtien the last striker
disappeared. The officials of the com
pany say, four strikers were picked up
dead and about half a dozen wounded
were carried away by their comrades.
Other reports say six were killed and
The company officials say the strikers
served notice on them that they ex
pected to assault the works and the
deputies considered the interference
with the workmen the beginning of
the assault. The strikers had made a
demonstration all night, even threaten
ing to visit the houses of the workmen
and give them the choice to quit work
The latest news from the scene of the
trouble is that the strikers are all gone.
A battle was narrowly averted at Fair
Chance last night.
Today the situation at the Hill Farm
mines, where the company has been
running a full force, is decidedly alarm
ing. The plants are guarded by 60
deputies, and a conflict would result
seriously. The strikers are determined
to force all the plants to shut down, re
gardless of the loss of life.
Later reports eay the shooting was
not all on one side. The workmen were
about to comply with the command to
"go home," when the deputies rushed
Into the midst of the strikers, got pos
session of the workmen and marched
thimto a pit. A deputy sheriff fired
the shot which opened the battle. Vol
ley after volley was fired by each side
at close range. The strikers' ammuni
tion giwe out, and they were forced to

J. H. Settlemier & Son,
Centralia. 111., May 2-1. Five hun
dred striking miners from the Duquen
and St Johns mines arrived here today
on a freight train and at the Big Four
mine demolished machinery, filled the
shaft with about fifteen feet of debris,
and smashed eleven cars of glass and
sash. The total damage is estimated
at $2,000. The strikers left the city on
foot for Odin, eight miles north of here,
to shut down the mine there. The
sheriff swore in fifty deputies, all
equipped with Winchesters, and left for
Odin on a special train. The miners
are also armed.

A Convent Scandal.
Chicago, May 24. Attorney-General
Maloney this afternoon filed a bill in
the circuit court against Sister Francis,
mother superior of the community of
Servile slsters.who conducts St. Mury's
seminary, Van Buren street and Al
bany avenue. Thesultlsto recover real
estate and property valued at $500,000.
Sister Veronica, formerly a member of
the community, and others, who claim
they were instrumental in soliciting
the funds for the purchase of the land
and erection of the convent, claim
the mother superior has conveyed to
herself the title of tho property and
that when asked by Archbishop
Feehan to reconvey It to the Servile
sisters she promised to do so, but has
not compiled with the request. The
attorney-general declares it is clearly
within the scope of the functions
of his office to inquire into al
leged trusts and especially charities.
Daring the day a sensational
scene occurred when Sister Gertude,
one of the mother superior's supporters,
was recognized by the clerks and al
lowed to read the bill that the attorney
general intends to file. She says it con
tains allegations of immorality against
the mother superior. Attorney General
Maloney bappeued in and seeing the
sister reading the bill in advance of its
filing, became greatly excited and
ordered her out.

Auckland.Now Zealand, May 24.
The steamship Mouowol, from Samoa,
May 17th, brings Important news.
When she sailed a large proportion of
tho government army had been sent to
the front and the rebels were massed at
Atua, the battlefield of 88. A con
flict between the rebolsand the govern
ment troops was thou probable at any
hour. The king, when tho stoamshlp
arrived, had given tho Aana party un
til May 19th to submit. In event of
their failure to do so, the Savaii natives
and a portion of the Tuamasaga natives
were to attack them. The British war
ship Curaco and the German warships
Buzzard and Falko were at Apia. It
was understood, however, the com
manders of these vessels wero without
orders from their governments as how
to act in case of emergency. The atti
tude of the rebels was defiant, and it is
expected un engagement ill as been
fought before now.
How the Goldbug Sees It.
London, May 24. Tho Times iu its
financial article says: "Indlflerent as
the American publio appears to the
great flux of gold from the ttreasury, it
is hardly too much to say that nothing
but the confidence of tho people In
Cleveland's sagaolty prevents a prem
ium on gold. A vote In congress would
bo necessary before a gold loan could bo
negotiated by the government, and we
cannot learn that auy steps have been
taken to drag In gold by the ears from
Europe In that manner. The public
here will certainly require a definite
announcement that the principle and
interest would be payable in gold be
fore subscribing for a now Isuuo of
bonds, and if that condition were com
plied with, it would bo unnecessary to
come to this country at all, for tho na
tional banks would then be prepared to
take tho bonds.
Little Bettor Than a Sowor.
London, May 24. Truth, In an artl
clo indorsing the Lancet's views on the
Manchester ship canal, makes un un
measured onslaught upon tho work. It
says: "The canal is little better than
an open sewer. The water Is In a filthy
condition, receiying, as It does, the
sewago of tho city and a number of
towns, thus endangering tho lives of
thousands employed in its vicinity.
Owing to the filthy stato of the canal,
the queen's voyago from Ham to Man
chester had to be abandoned."
