They invaded the open stairways and, dazed by the electric lights, tried to get into the stores by flying through tbe plate glass windows. It was an unusual phenomenon and where the grasshoppers came from was a matter of much speculation. Although thousands of them were to be seen last night but few could be found this morning. Edith M. Haines and H.

Haines Not wishing to marry under asanmed names, the license was properly made ont and they were duly married according to law and this makes them Mr. and Mrs, H. J. Steinkey. They are in a quandary how to proceed to change their names and may ask a court to do so for them. Leading lawyers say tbat it is a very unusual proceeding for a married couple to change their names jointly. It they wished to protect tbe legacy It is said tbat that the proper may would have been for tbe young man to assume legally tbe name of Haines, and then have the ceremony performed. The names cannot be changed jointly, and the separate changing, it Is claimed, would not make .them Mr. and Mrs. Haines, but separate individuals with such names. MARCHING MINER?.

He had been in Ill-health for some time, but tbe serious nature of bis ailment was not known outside of bis family.and immediate associates. He was born in 1834 ID St. Louis, lived for some years in Alton when he began tbe tobacco business and later removed to tise city of bis birth. He was one of St, Lonis' foremost and wealthiest citizens. His second wife was Miss Bethia Handle, daughter of Judge I. B. Handle, formerly of Edwardsville. He leaves foor children, Han I., James T., Charles R. and^BacSel, tbe oldest, Harrison I., wbo Hphe bead of tbe big tobacco factory, haying married Miss Macie Frickett, daughter^ Maj. V. R. Prickett, of tbls city, tbe w^K-knowa baater. Tbe funeral will take days; eight, Fridays,- fl.£0 per year, ante/ afternoon at 2 o'clock at Altai. Tbe situation of tbe striking miners took a serious turn Thursday morning. Since Saturday in the neighborhood of bnadred strikers have made tbls city Headquarters. Morning and evening tbey nave witnessed fifteen or twenty men who have been working ID the Madison Coal Co. mine, go to and from work, under guard of tun deputy sheriff! and he police officers Tbey offered no re-Istance, and caused no disturbance until Thursday morning. Wednesday afternoon word was sent to Glen Carbon and Troy that re-inforcements of striken ·vere needed. 4. hundred or more from Glen Carbon including abont twenty-five women, wives of men In idleness, left coat place at three o'clock in tbe morning and reached bere at daybreak. Tbls delegation in (addition to tbe one hundred or more already on the grounds, assembled near the county farm on tbe ·ilnkey track leading to the mine. They awaited tbe coming of tbe men ID charge of the officers. The latter arrived at tbcut a quarter to seven o'clock. Deputy Sheriff John Dillon and Marshal Wm. Baird, who were in the lead bad passed 'he waiting crowd, when tbe clash came. The strikers and women closed In on tbe workmen and the deputies. The conflict was an ugly one. The strikers were armed with clubs, and used them freely. A tierce encounter took place at abort range Men were pommelled and tbeir dinner buckets were buttered and emptied. Five or six succeeded in free- Ing themselves from tbeir aggressors and went to work. The officials seemed utterly powerless to cope witb the strong forces of tbe strikers. It is fortunate that the officials were discreet enough co refrain from using tbeir firearms, and oy their conduct averted more serious trouble Among the injured are "Scotty" Mc- Ouiloagh, one of the workmen He was struck several blows on the bead witb clubs The scalp was laid open,- requiring several stitches. Caleb Bartlett, clerk at the mine, was treated to a handful of red pepper thrown by one of the women in ais face, but he closed his eyes and -scaped injury. Deputies T. W. HcCnne and Jos. A Barnett were struck wltn clubs, but neither was badly bnrt Others were more or less bruised, as a result the encounter. After the battle, the strikers with tbe women in the lead marched down Mam street and returned to camp in tbe southern part of the city. Breakfast was served there and shortly afterward tbe women were taken to Glen Carbon in conveyances. The early morning scene was the talk of the town all day. Interested gatherings on every hand discussed tbe afitlr. The descriptions of tbe enconnter by some of the deputies reminded one of the incident of war days as depicted by some enthusiastic veteran. Tbe strikers congregated In groups' about tbe camp and talked over the experiences. A number of themes wbo were prevented from going to work, expressed their intention of remaining ont for tbe present. General Manager A. J. Moonhead, * the Coal Company, arrived on the morning and busied himself looking alter the Company's Interests. No developments occurred tbls morn- Ing. Strikers to the number of a hundred gathered at the scene of yesterday's demonstration. None of tbe workingmen showed np for work, and bat few the deputies were on band. The coal company claims tbat It is impossible for them to pay tbe scale adopted by tbe miners; tbat they have · contracts based on tbe old wages: and under which tbey cannot meet tbe new price. So long as tbe strike continues the contracts are not binding, and coal is purchased from other concerns and pat in market figures. Should tbey operate tbe mines, tbe contracts witb tbe low prices again go Into effect. Tbe miners claim tbat the Madison Cjal Company has been operating tbeir mine in Edwardaville witb a few men ·daring the strike at a great losp flw»- ctally in the bope of forcing .'the en-' plojesof the other mines to again go to work at tbe old scale.
