BBKSASDOAH, Pa., Feb. 0. —Rioting broke out afrtsli on Saturday afternoon In consequence of the miners' trouble, and resulted In the Bupp-Hinl shooting of a special pollcoMiaii. As quitting time drew near" fte strikers begun UNembling in tbe vicinity of Kehluy Run colliery. : Trouble 'was antld- pstod at this po.nt, and Dtatrlct Attorney Whltebouaa went there, and addressing the men, advised them to preserve order and disperse. No Attention was paid to this request, and as Ibe hrotiker boys came out they were set upou and unmercifully beaten. The boys bad been permitted to start home unprotected, because it was not expected that the strikers would attack more boys. Tbe police hurrlod to the rescue and succeeded In getting tbe boy I to their Homes, and then retired to their barracks. . Tbe Hugry crowd bad now grown Into several thousand and advanced on tbe police, armed with clubs, stones and revolvers, and mistaking a rotreat for cowardice^ flred, 'seriously, perhaps fatally, wouridiug Officer Wltmer, of Pottsvllle. Tbe police returned the flre, stopping the crowd, but with what result was unknown. The city burgbens and some prominent strikers, wltb tbe advisory board, aided In finally dispersing the crowd. A special train arrived over the Beading rond }ust as trouble was ended, bringing In over 100 special company officers and a oar- load of carbines, and tha vicinity of Indian Ridge soon colliery preseuted a warlike aspect, bkirmlsh lines were thrown out .and camp routine inaugurated. Up to 11 o'clock p. Of. no new trouble bad arisen, but the officers were en tbe alert for action, as it was reported by detectives tnafthe mob intended- to attack the "scabs" at their homes after midnight. The mob was composed mainly of Poles and Hungarians, the same, as on the previous evening. Sunday passed off quietly, the strents were unusually crowded, with no external Indications of renewal of hostilities, but this may come if an effort Is made to . start the collieries again. Of tbe victims of tbe trouble thus far, Base Boll Player Heferon, shot in Friday night's riot, is In bad shape, and has been taken to the Miners' hospital at Ashland. Policeman. Williams, shot in the tblzb on Saturday, was taken to his .Pottsvllle home. The others are out of danger. Quiet inquiry of the various drug stores and physicians discloses the fact that over a doon cases of gun-shot wounds are being treated about town. Tbe borough aud county officials have at last awakened to a full sense of their duties, which, It is said, has been hastened by tho delivery of Manager Mclieod's message tbat If they did not act the state - would be appealed to for military aid, and have sworn In several scores of special officers, but have not yet ordered thorn on duty. Sheriff Duffy was In Potts vi lie all Sunday «onsulting with bis own and Reading's counsel, resulting in the organization of a posse comltatus of 100 men to start with, tiro number to bo Increased If needed. This force is now being recruited at Pottsvllle, Bheuaniloab and other points. Tbe company guarantees wages and expenses of .these deputies,, Theaa men will bo concentrated about tbe town and bandied separately from tbe 093! and iron 'police, 1» order io increase the power of tbo latter. , At District Attorney .Wbitehouse's suggestion they will also be appointed sheriffs deputies. i: • •'Bnerlff Duffy has Issued a proclamation in tbe unual terms, cautioning all persona to desist from unlawful sets such al 'Friday's and Saturday's rlotu, and . from congregating where such acts are being or Intending to be committed. •'•> Additions to tbe coal and iroa special poljce force about here eoptlnu* to be made.

Ther^ are several , hundred men on duty at the company's property here, and •ny further attempt at violence will be summarily dealt with. • ' Tbe Roman Catbollo priests spoke strongly against rioting,"tn and oat of the church, Sunday, and counseled all to go fo, work and thus end the" strike.' ' Prominent citizens were numerously urging strikeri to prevalLon-tha Hungarians and Poles to dasist \ breaking peace. --Strike- leaders,' who too well ris- oognUe. tba bad efteot , tbe»a troubles ha on their cause, are in constant consults trying to d&viso main* to prevent furl trouble. : Company officials say; that more effort is to be made to 'operate the lieries about BhenaniloBh, . , an*i if troubles are repeated they will close d all their w.orks there indefinitely, w would soou depopulate this, coal city ol 000 Inhabitants, and bankrupt all bu men. ; : .: ..-•'. » '• '• • ' SIMILAR SCENES IN PITTSBUR others fell to tbe ground, btrt who th«y wore or the nature of their Injuries bos not as yet been learned. The frvntMC excitement prevailed. The poline offloors were momentarily paralysed by tbe sudden and ttl»zpACt«d tnrn of affairs. Finally tho officers drew their revolvers, advanced upon tbe negroes who bald revolvers In ench hand and compelled thorn to put away their weapons. Officer Shaffer di»- armal tbe negro who flred upon Ktanay after a struggle with him, but did not place him under arrant The crowd having dU- peraad, tbe negroes were escorted by tbe policemen to their homes on Thirtieth street and tbe officers returned to tbe works. Tbe Injured boys were quickly removed by thfcir friends. Talk of Extending the Strike. POTSBUBO, Pa., Feb. 8—The possibility ot a strike in the Lackawanna and Wyoming regions as a result of the action taken by Dlutrict afsambly Na Id, causes a feeling of •erlqus apprehension among tha business men throughout this section. The opinion is largely entertained, however, that the knights aro playiug a bold game ot bluff, and will not rmort totbeoxtrema measure of forcing their demand by a strike. Representatives of , tbe , large poal companies who have expressed any opinions in regard to the matter, generally Incline to the belief tbat tha advance will not be granted. Miners outilda of,tbe organization, who are fully as strong numerically as the knights, are emphatically opposed to tha strike, and will not join such movement If it is ordered. General Master Workman Pow- darly is quoted as having said that It would be a great mistake to order tha strike at this time.' . - ' Fighting Their Own City.

WASIHNOTOK CITT, Feb. 5.—An official report to tbe war department on tbe use of dynamite shells In a demonstration made last December at Bandy Hook, but which was withheld from the pnblla nntll a few days ago. Is attracting a great deal of attention here among army and navy officer*, and others; and some go so far as to say that the saooen attending this last and other prior demonstrations and successful experiments of a similar character, lays the foundation for a complete revolution In. tbe system ot modern warfare. Shells charged with ordinary powder, such as it was supr^wed could only be used heretofore, are to be laid aside, and dynamite shells arc to bo used In tbe annihilation ot armies, the reduction ot forts or the crippling of fleets. Tbe thin; accomplished at Sandy Hook, as shown by tbe report of the board of ordnance officers—Lieut. CoL Mordecal, Maj. Farley, and Capfc. Greer —was the total wreckage of a wrought iron semi-circular turret IU feet wUlo, 10 feet high, and 14 inches thick, made by two seven-Inch plate.i, by three 'dynamite shells flred from a seven-inch Amos rifled gun. The shells were of steel, weighed 132 ponnds, and were charged with 2.60 pounds of dynamite. This was accomplished by a method ot charging shells with dynamite, the Invention of J. W. Graydon, of Indianapolis, formerly a lieutenant In tha navy. His invention con- •IsU not only in firing dynamite shells from modern guns or cannon, with a full service charge of powder and with no danger of premature explosion of tha shell from heat br shock, but also securing the entire range desired and penetration Into tbe object struck before the dynamite explodes—penetration being absolutely necessary In order to obtain the full destructive power of the explosive. Three demonstrations of this Invention have thus far been made by order of Gen. Sheridan—two at San Francisco In tbo summer of 1880, and tbo third at Sandy Hook. The experiments at Ban Francisco were conducted by Gen. O. 0. Howard, and were Intended merely to demonstrate tbat shells chfirged with dynamite.could be flred from cannon without premature explosion. "After fifty-eight dynamite shells had been successfully flred out of a S-inoh and a 4%-lnch siege gun from tbe Presidio grounds into the hills across the Golden gate, the board of officers conducting the experiment expressed the opinion In their" report that the twu principal causes or apprehension of , danger, beat and shock, bad been completely guarded against Gen. Howard then recommended further experiments with larger guns, and out ot this recammendation grow the Sandy Hook demonstration with a 7-lnoh Ames gun and lK3-pouad shells. Tbe San Francisco experiment* had proven tbat dynamite.shells could be fired from cannon with safety, and at Bandy Hook it was Intended to' prove that Gray don's method of charging dynamite shells possessed still another important merit—that of obtaining penetration before explosion. Tbe effect of tbe three shots flred there is minutely described by,the board In their report. Two of the shot* were glancing shots and not "point on" shots, as was dealrsd to test penetration, but they penetrated the front plate several Inches, and caused marked wreckage, the .first tearing oft tba Iron root weighing fifteen tons, and throwing at a distrance ot twenty-five feet, as well as bunting bolt- beads and separating tbe plates several inches. A third shot—a "point on" shot— completely wrecked on* side of the turret, penetration through tbe front plate being effected before the shell exploded.* Apiece of the front plate weighing nearly two tons was blown a distance of 18 feet, tbe platen were still further separated, whUo both were badly cracked. i The board, in their report, substantiate the two main point* claimed tor tbe Invention by saying: "Shells charged with dynamite by Lieut, Gray don were successfully fired from the gun, and serious damage was inflicted on the lurret, this being especially the case In the third round, when penetration and dl»- rnptlve effact were combined." Other experiments will soon be made with tha largest guns in the service, ,and with twelve-Inch .rifled mortars, throwing 625- pound shells, and with. tbe Hotcbklss revolving cannon, to still further teat the merits of this new method of charging shells with dynamite. ; « unworthy of b-lUf oa ace mnt of so .ie utterances upon the stump.

Coubran's eloquence Is a matter of national reputation. He will be remembered as an active participant In the debates in the national Democratic convention ol 1684, and be ranks high In the New Tork bar. After Moore of Texas and O'Ferrall of Virginia had spoken against White, Rowoll of Illinois mode a short argument In his favor, but yielded part of hli time to Ccobran, who, as ha rose to speak for the coiitestee, was watched by every eye and attentively listened to. He said tbe question was whether White was eligible to a seat to which he bad undoubtedly been elected. White stood before the house upon his oath, declaring that in 1063 he I went before' the court In Allen county, Indiana, accompanied by witnesses, and compiled with all the provisions, ot law, and that a certificate of naturalisation was issued to him. Holding the views be [Cockran] did there was nothing left for him to decide but whether he would believe tbe sworn statement of a member of the house, corroborated by.s character against which not one word hail been uttered In this debate. [Ap- plaute.] White was a lawful member of tbe bouse, or his place was at tbe bar 6f> a criminal court on tbe charge ot perjury. This man oamo here with thirty years ot honorable life to g^ye weight to his statement. He bad held Important offices and had i shed his blood for his country [applause], ,afad Cockran's voice would not cast a vote which would make tbe wounds he* receive*) In ..honorable service bleed afresh. [Applansa^ After Cochrau had concluded the; temper of a portion of tba Democratic majority was further shown by the support given White by Wilson of Minnesota, who declared that men would be moral perjurer* if ifcoy did not vote their honest convictions irrespective of every party consideration. Rowoll, during his speech niada what might be called an odious comparison." He u b; wy lug that there war* 3u,(XX) own in Chicago to-day exactly la tbe same position at White.
