Police Unable to Cope with the Mob —A Sheriffs Desperate Fight in the Coke Regions. DETEOITEBS STILL WALKING. DETROIT, Mich., April 24.—Wednesday the employes of the Michigan and Detroit stove works,to.the number of about S,000, #ave notice that they would not work. They are mingling with the strikers and encouraging the men in every way, in many instances showing more violence than the strikers themselves, The strikers have tho sympathy of the people, who in many instances when cars have been run since the beginning' of the trouble have refused to ride in them. A conference was held Thursday afternoon between the police department, sheriff and city railway officials, and it was decided to give the company the support of the whole police department and sheriff's force- to enable them to run the cars. Nearly the whole force was out in the afternoon to keep order during 1 a monster labor parade of shoemakers and stovemolders. Immediately after the .parade passed it was decided to start ten cars for the evening service on Woodward avenue. The first ear got away all riffht, followed by a patrol wagon containing 1 ten officers. A second car started immediately after, without the accompanying' protection, however, and the strikers threw it on its side and across the track. The attempt to start cars was then given up, A car which had been lying- at the river front all day was started up the hill. The word was quickly passed, and in a short time about 15,000 people packed the broad avenue from the north side of Jefferson avenue down to the river. The car started up the hill at breakneck speed, the mob closed about it, a man leaped from among the crowd and grasped the bridle of the team. The driver whipped his tiorses and the man was dragged from bis feet and pulled all the way across the street. But he held on, ran the tiorses into a bug-gy and stopped the 2ar. In the meantime a number of buggies, trucks, etc., had been run across the track. The dozen policemen on the car tried to remove them but could not Then the car was started back. The crowd pursued it and, unhitching the horses, tried to run the car into the river. A ferryboat coming into the dock 'just at that moment prevented them carrying out their design. At this point the crowd was charged by a force of police and clubbed unmercifully. Revolvers were drawn and for a few moments it looked as if there was to be bloodshed, but the police presented a sturdy front and effected some arrests which quickly quieted the crowd considerably. It began to rain shortly after, and as no more attempts were made to run cars the crowd gradually dispersed. DETBOIT, Mich., April'24.—There is a total suspension of hostilities in the street car strike. No effort has been made'by the company to move its cars, and thirteen, of the fourteen lings entering the business .center remain tied up. The strikers are quiet and orderly. Five thousand men from the iron-works and the stove factories have quit work out of sym-. pathy with the railway malcontents,. The mayor will ask the governor for militia protection in the event of further trouble. A SHERIFF AT BAY. SCOTTDALE, Pa., April 24.—Comparative, quiet reigned in the coke region up to noon. Evictions are being made at several ' places, but thus far there are no indications of trouble. The presence of the militia will probably prevent any outbreak. The operators continue ' to • give out that more men are gradually returning to work. A message received here at noon states that the Whitney and Lippincott works, on the Youngwood branch, are practically running full, ' a large number of the old men having- gone to work. The labor leaders are busily engaged in giving out the tents received Thursday. They will be distributed between Leisenring, Adelaide, Morgans and Painter. The leaders are confident they will be able to take care of all the evicted people. J^ABOR COMPLICATIONS IN PITTSBUKGH. PITTSBITH&H, Pa.,'April 24..— The hod carriers at work on the buildings where stonemasons were locked out have struck against the : lock-out. About 'one-third of the members are. out Some of the' building trade officials have made' an estimate of-the number of men in this city who will either be locked out or will strike May 1.. Their estimate is: . • : • : Carpenters,- 4,500; -stone cuttere, 800; hod- •barriers,' 1,000; .plasterers,, 450; painters anc paper bang«rs, l.COO; tinners and roofers, 360- marble cutters and;pol1sliers, 200; tils layers and helpers, 150; plumbers and g'aa fitters, 150 structural ironworkers, MSO; electricians, 75 bricklayers, 850; total, 10J475 men.. UNION-TOWN, Pa., April 24.—A serious •tiot occurred at Monarch Thursday morning which resulted in -the fata, wounding of one man and the seripus injury of a woman. The. sheriff of e county,' with his deputies, ha* been defied, and the sheriff himself assaulted, shot in the ankle and beaten and cut with an ax in the hands of an .nfnriated -Hungarian woman. Since the ugly Morewood affair the women have taken the principal part in defying deputies, the men either ^referring to obey the orders of their .eaders and remain inactive or think- ng the sheriff and troops will not be so severe where women lead the attacks, Thursday morning Sheriff McCormick and his deputies went to Leisenring No. 3 to evict ten families of striking Slavs, and as was their experience at Adelaide Wednesday they had a bloody battle with an infuriated mob of men and women. It was about 11 o'clock when the sheriff and his deputies reached house S'o. 105, occupied by Thomas Tarr. The sheriff at once read the writ of eviction, to Tarr, and by the time ae was through .with it a crowd of three or four hundred men and women had collected in front of the premises. Tarr, with an oath, declined to evacuate the domicile, and seizing an ax stood in the doorway and defied the sheriff to enter. Andy Clash- ko's wife, who lived in the other half of the house and who had given birth to a child only two days before, hearing the tumult rushed out, and spying the sheriff made a dive for him, pistol in hand. The sheriff saw her coming, and just as she was about to fire at his breast he struck the pistol a downward blow with his left hand and at the same time fired the revolver he had in his right hand at her. The two pistols went off simultaneously and both took effect. • The sheriff had shot the woman in the fleshy part of the left thigh, and she had shot him in the left ankle. The bail, however, struck him only a glancing lick and did not do him much injury. The shot in the woman's thigh seemed to infuriate her the more and she made a second dash at the sheriff, who shoved her back. She fell to the ground and was carried into the house in a half- unconscious condition by friends. Andy Blashko, seeing that his wife was being roughly handled, made a dash at the sheriff with a club, but the nervy little officer was too quick for him, and, taking deliberate aim, shot Blashko in the left ankle, the bullet making an ugly hole in the flesh and shattering the bone. By this time the sheriff's blood was up, and, with a cocked revolver, 44- caliber, in either hand, he stood with his back against the end of the house and informed the mob that the first man who made a move towards him he would shoot, and shoot to kill. For a moment the crowd held back; then Martin Scroupka, who lives at tieisenring No. 1, left the crowd and rushed at the sheriff with a large club uplifted. The sheriff waited until Scroupka got within 5 feet of him and then fired. The shot took effect, the bullet striking Scroupka in the mouth, knocking out two of his teeth - and lodging somewhere in the back part of his mouth. The wounded Slav wheeled and started to run along the end of the house and the sheriff followed him, firing as rapidly as he could. Someone shouted to the sheriff to look out, and turning he saw Tarr, the man on whom he had served the writ, coming toward him with an ax. The sheriff pointed both his revolvers at him and Tarr retreated. By this time Capt. Frasher, of Company C, had brought the soldiers up the road on double quick, and their presence at once quelled the rioters, and the sheriff and his deputies proceeded to the work of evicting, and in. a very short time the household effects of thirteen strikers were piled in front of so many houses. The Huns or Slavs are loud in their denunciations of Sheriff McCormick and threats of having him arrested for. shooting with intent to kill are rife.,- UNIOXTOIVN, Pa,, April 24.—Constable Campbell, of Connellsville, brought twenty-five of the Trotter rioters for a hearing before Squire Dawson. Eleven of the number are women. After hearing the evidence Justice Dawson held twenty of them , in 8500 bail each. They . said they would not give -bail- and Squire Dawson handed the .sheriff a commitment. There are now fifty-seven prisoners r in the jail and the sheriff does not want to commit these twenty and is trying to get them to give ba.il. They claim to be unable to give bail and seem to want to go to jail as the easiest way to live during the strike. A WONDERFUL WELLv Water Struck at a Depth of Nearly 1,000 Feet JFurnigheB a Groat JTlo,w. ~HX7BO*, S. D., April 24.—The largest flowing well in the world was struck Thursday afternoon on the farm of H, •Bisdon, 2 miles west of Huron. The ; flow is through an 8-inch pipe and so strong that a solid column of water 8 inches in diameter shoots 10 feet in. the air and makes a tremendous noise. The'well is 935 feet deep, but will be put lower still if possible. The : now is estimated at. 10,000 gallons per minute. It flooded the ground so rapidly that .great ditches were cut to carry it into the Missouri river. '' William Lewis, charged with.stealing $1,150 from George Scott, of Chicago, was arrested at Cincinnati Thursday. He gave up.S3HO.of the money and will be brought back to Chicago.
