Ten thousand Socialists met in Clerkenwell last evening for the fur pose of holding a meeting and subsequently marching in procession in defiance of the government : prohibition.' - Hundreds ' of mounted police were on the spot, but their presence did not prevent 'the speakers from giving utterance to most incendiary speeches. An attempt on the part of the Socialists was made to light torches preparatory to forming a procession, but the police interfered and the mob dispersed,- breaking into three parties and taking throe different routes. This piece-' of ; ; strategy:; rendered the -force of police on the ' - -ground -. wholly- inadequate to 'control the entire, number of Socialists,' corapelli ug " the former to also divide itself into three parts. The Socialist contingent which inarched in the direction of the city armed themsulTes with pieces of . granite which were lying loosa in the street where they . were needed to repair the - pavement, : and " began smashing the windows of shops and bouses en route. Tbe crowd; attempted to loot a butcher's shop, but were met at the door by the owner; who emptied a revolver into the mob, driving them away, but doing nobody injury. The rioters were; met at Hewgate by a strong force, . of ". police and -t quickly X dispersed. Several of the mob were arrested. The sections of the . original mob which started westward from - Clerkem veil -- sustained " a gradual depletfon of numbers, before any damage Wi I done and disappeared, thanks to the extremely cold, weather, and . the absence of organization or., leadership in their ranks. f; MI3S-RANDAU.L MARRIED. hs 'ltlest Daughter of the' Keysteaa " ' - :',," Cangressman.'"

The pure, manufactured only of the beet materials and by the most approved processes,' beer is acknowledged to possess efficacious medicinal properties and is recommended by tho best (hysicians as a remedy for cases of debility and for many forms of disease. At tbe same time cultivated bastes differ in preference, and to meet all requirements of the case, the "Philip Best Brewing Co." manufacture different varieties of beer, each marked by peeuliar characteristics, and each made of the purest materials and by the best processes known to science. They are as follows. SELECT, BOHEMIAN, BAVARIAN, EXPORT, STANDARD. All these varieties can be purchased from George At Lohmann, wholesale and retail dealer. He gets these beers direct from the brewery, and consequently are the straight goods. All bottles have G. A. Lohmann on the peek label, so you cannot make a mis-taka.
