TTOBKOFAWILDMOB Days of the Commune Are Re* called in Paris. SCENE OF SERIOUS RIOTS OK SUNDAY Brealc Up aa Anarchist Meet* !·«·-- Crovrd Attack* and Despoil* a Church-- Many Persons Hurt. Taris, Aug. 21.-- Paris was on Sunday the scene of most serious disturbances, recalling some aspects of the commune. In response to an appeal of the Journal Le Peuple, and La Petite Kepublique, groups of anarchists and socialists gathered about three o'clock in the afternoon in the Place Be la Bepublique. The police had taken precautions, and there seemed no danger of disorders. Sebastion Faure and xfeberot, well-known revolutionary an- mrchists, were the ringleaders. Faure, Standing on the pedestal of the statue iwhich rises in the center of the Place Be la Bepublique, addressed the crowd. Among other things, he said that the anarchists should be masters of the streets. Police Take a Hand. The police then interfered and dislodged Faure and Faberot, making three arrests. The crowd at this point dispersed, but a column of demonstrators, headed by Faure and Henri D'Horr, made for the Place de la Nation. The police broke through the Column and a struggle for the mastery followed. Shots were fired and M. Goullier, commissary of police, was twice stabbed with a knife. This threw the police into moment- try confusion. The mob reassembled and ran toward the Place de la Kation. The police, reenforced by a squad that shad been held in reserve, made an- 1 Other attempt to stem the current, and fresh fierce fighting occurred, three j constables being wounded. Faure and D'Horr jumped into a passing street car that was going to the Place de la Ee- publique and the car drh er on arriving there gave a signal to the police, who Immediately arrested them both, together with two other anarchists, Joseph Ferrier and Jean Perrin. All were conTCjed to the Chateau d'Eau barracks. Only D'Horr was found in possession of firearms. Moli Attacks Churches. In the meantime the anarchist mob retraced its course to the Place de la Bepublique. smashing the windows of religious edifices on the way. Suddenly, either at the word of command or in obedience to impulse, the column made a loop and curved toward the church of St. Ambroise, -where the rioters smashed the windows. Proceeding thence toward the Faubourg du Temple, which reached at the corner of the Eue Darboy and the Rue St. Mauri-Popin court, they formed up into a compact body. Hatchets were sud- denlyproduced,with long knives stolen from the counters of shops, and a concerted rush was made upon the chuich of St. Joseph. The aged Sacristan, seeing the mob, hastily closed the outer gates, but these were soon forced with hatchets and bars of iron. The massive oaken doors were then attacked. Church Ransacked. According to the first account the ·wild horde burst into the charch. which instantlj became a scene of pillage and sacrilege. Altars and statues were hurled to the floor and smushed, pictures were rent, candlesticks, ornaments and hosts from high altars were thrown down and trampled under foot. The crucifix above was marie the target for missiles and the figure of the Saviour was fractured in several places. Then, while raucous voices sang the "Carmagnole," the chairs were carried outside, piled up and set on fire in the center of the square fronting the church. Crnclflx in the Flames. When this stage was reached the crucifix was pulled down and thrown into the flames. Suddenly the cry was raised that the statue of the Virgin had been forgotten and the crowd returned and tore this down also. Police and Mob Fight. Meanwhile the sacristan, who had been captured by the anarchists, escaped and called the police and republican guards, who promptly arrhed, with man^ constables. They w ere compelled to fall back in order to form up into line of defense, as the anarchists attacked them fearfully with knives. At length the officers began to gain the mastery. A score of anarchists took refuge in an adjacent house. Others intrenched themselves in the belfry and fiercely defended themselves by showering missiles on the republican guards, but finally these were dislodged. Twenty anarchists were arrested, taken to the police station, searched and found to be carrying revolvers, loaded sticks and knives. Pnlpit Fired. When the police entered the church the anarchists had just set fire to the pulpit. The interior of the edifice was a complete wreck. Several valuable old pictures that can never be replaced ·were ruined. After the mob had been driven away Abbe LaCour, the incumbent, collected the fragments of the sacrament and replaced them in the cibo- lium. As he did so he was heard bitterly lamenting. The people living in the houses near by extinguished the bonfire. Still Fighting-. Since eight o'clock the demonstrators, BO far as Gare de 1'Este, have been repeatedly driven back by police charges, the crowd crying "Vive 1'armee and "Vive la republique." The police also dispersed a crowd of gamins who were burning bundles of newspapers. About ten o'clock disorders occurred on the Boulevard de Magenta and the Boulevard de Strasbourg. Several revolver , shots were fired, but nobody was injured. Two newspaper kiosks were burned and several arrests were made In connection therewith. Gaerla Still Bealeffe*. There is no change in the situation at the building in the Rue de Chabrol, where M. Jules Guerin and his anti- Semitic companions are intrenched in a state of siege against the police, who have orders for their arrest* Shortly after midnight noisy crowds began demonstrating in the Rue de Chabrol, but they were soon dispersed by the police. 2. a. m.--Up to the present hour 56 persons have been reported injured, Including several policemen. No one, so far as known, was injured by firearms. Nearly all were hurt by being crushed or trodden under foot. A body of rioters who had taken refuge in the courtyard of the Gare de 1'Este was expelled by the police, who made 25 arrests. Quiet has now been restored. JIMINEZ RELEASED. Santo Domingo Leader Arrested at Clenfneffos, IB Set at Liberty by Gen. Brooke. Havana, Aug. 21.--It is asserted that the arrest of Gen. Juan Isidro Jiminez, the aspirant to the presidency of Santo Domingo, who was captured on board a steamer at Cienfuegos Friday, just as the steamer was about leaving that port, was not caused by orders from Havana, but was effected through the orders of Gen. James M. Wilson, governor of the department of Matanzas and Santa Clara. Immediately upon learning of the arrest Maj. Gen. Brooke, governor general of Cuba, gave orders for the release of the prisoner. The action of Gen. Wilson in ordering the arrest of Jiminez causes much comment. Jiminez left Cienftigos Sunday morning on board the Polaria, bound for Manzanillo and Santiago de Cuba. After his release he remained at the Union hotel until he left the city. He complained bitterly to his friends of the arrest. AT STATE EXPENSE. Fund Raised to Brinjs the First 3Se- braska Volunteers Home by Special Train. Omaha, !N T eb., Aug. 21.--The First Nebraska volunteers, which reached San Francisco from Manila three weeks ago, will be brought home on a special train at state expense. Twelve thousand dollars has been raised by the newspapers of the state, D. E. Thompson, a prominent citizen of Lincoln, has loaned the governor $20,000, and Sunday Edward Cudahy, the South Omaha meat packer, tendered the state executive $3,000 to make up the sum of $35,000 required for the purpose. The matter has been hanging fire for several days, and it was feared that the boys would have to pay their own way home, but through the persistent efforts of Gov. Poynter the sum has been raised and the gallant First regiment will soon be on its way to Nebraska, winch, was left a year ago last April to sustain the honor of the flag in the Philippines.

Patronize Home Industry. The Brick Mills at Iowa City, have been closed, or rather shut down for the last two weeks for repairs, and with the addition of new machinery which has been put in, is one of the best and most up-to-date mills in the country. The proprietor, Frank Tanner, has used great care in overhauling the same is now prepared to make any and all kinds of flour. "Splendid" and "Arbutus" are made of northern wheat; "Golden Rod" of Iowa wheat. Whole Wheat is a new process that is considered by all physicians to be the healthiest flour on the market. Some of the other Brands are "Brilliant Blend," "Economy," "Graham" and Rye flour. White and Yellow corn meal, and breakfast foods such as "Wheatine," "Crushed Wheat," and "Cracked Wheat." Give this flour a trial and you will use no other. Remember that we do all kinds of grist work, and exchange flour for wheat. Bring me your grain as I can pay you more for the same than the shippers. I also have feed of all kinds. Why not patronize home industry. Iowa City Brick Mills, FRANK TANNER. Proprietor. IOWA GFPY Electric Light COMPANY- D. F. SAWYFR, President and Gen.Mgr. E. F.
