St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 13. Dis
patches received from Cloquet show
that the strike of the 150 to 2K) mill
vaands at that place is becoming more
serious every hour and it is thought it
will be impossible to avoid bloodshed.
The sheriff, unable to cope with the
mob, swore in all the deputies he
could get hold of, and late in the after
noon telegraphed Governor Merriam
that he was entirely unable to do any
thing with the strikers, and called for
the aid of sito troops,

Train llobbers ou the Jnmp.
Charlotte, N C, Aug. 13. As pas
senger train No. 53, northbound, on the
Richmond and Danville road reached a
point six miles north of Lexington, two
strange looking men, who had got on
the cars at Lexington, pulled, the- hell
cord, and Conductor Morris saw the act
and demanded an explanation. " ou 11
see," was the only answer he could get,
The conductor hurried into the next
car, signaled the engineer to go on, and
then appealed to R. P. Dick, a federal
judge; to arrest the m'en. Judge Dick
summoned a posse, but tne two strangers
seeing them coming ran to the platform
and jumped off the train, which was
going at a good speed. It is supposed
that the object of the men was robbery.
Tky were heavily armed.
n Shot His trlfe's Sedneer.
ihicago, Aug. 13. Dr. Edward P.
Sawyer, one of the oldest and best
known physicians in this city, was shot
and probably fatally wounded at 1 :20
yesterday afternoon. TTjs assailant was
J. Dal ton Fancher, a traveling corre
spondent of The Chicago Horseman. It
is said that Mrs. Fancher confessed to
her husb.-nd, who had just returned
from a trip on the road, that she had
sustained illicit relations with the phy
sician for tnree ye,ara. Fancher went
to the doctor's residence, where during
& quarrel Fancher was knocked down
. by a chair in the hands of the doctor.
Fancher then drew a revolver and shot
the doctor through the neck. Fancher
is under arrest.

telegram from Rat Portage, Ont., says
that Canadian and American Indians
have taken possession of Garden
Island, sixty-five miles from Rat Por

and ordered the fishing companies to
vacate within four days. The principal
company is the ' Baltimore Packing

in reaching here and the four days
expire Thursday. Governor Merriam
has been asked for assistance. A mas
sacre is feared.
Phelps Perrln's Trial.
Ashland, Wis., Aug. 13. The state
closed its direct testimony in the trial
of Phelps Perrin. It is not likely the
case will go to the Jury before the end
of the week. W. S. Rejsnolds, cashier
of the robbed bank, was on the stand
all afternoon and a part of the forenoon
as well. So far the sensational new

"CHAMPION DAT" AT MON.MOCTJI.
Salvator Again Defeats Terry A
Unknown at Rochester.
New York, Aug. 13. It was "cham
pion day" at Monmouth. This speaks
ftfr itself, as race-goers regard it as the
mast important of the meeting and they
always, turn out in full force. Over
twenty thousand people were in attend
ance. All of the nineteen youngsters
entered in the Junior Champion started,
with Ambulance the favorite at 3 to 1.
It was a grand race all the way down
the stretch, but in the last furlong
fcitrathsmeatb, Potomac and Sallie Mc
Clelland drew away from the field and
in an exciting finish they were so close
that nobody could pick the winner till
the numbers were hung out. The
judges put Strathmeath first, Sallie
McClelland second and Potomac third.
Scarcely had the boys weighed-in for
the Junior Champion when the crowd
surged to the betting ring to play Sal
vat or against Tenny. Salvator was the
favorite at 4 to 5 or while 6 to 5 against
Tenny could be had all over the ring.
Both got away to a very even 6tart.
but in a few jumps Salvator's blazed
nose showed in front on the outtide.
For five furlongs they ran in thir order.
Then, as they struck the turn for home.
Garrison let out a link on Tenny and he
shot to the front, getting a lead of half
a length. Murphy, on Salvator, how
ever, did not let him get any further
iiwny. He at once sent Salvator after
the little black, and was soon at Tenny's
neck. From this point to within three
furlongs of home it was a pretty race.
Th'-n Murphy lxgan to ride, and the
shout went up, "Tenny is beaten." It
was true. Tenny had .to acknowledge
defeat. When Murphy found that he
had Tenny beaten he eased" up, and, as
Garrisou did the same thing, it was a
'tame finish, Salvator winning by four
good lengths. This victory settles de
cisively the relative merits of Salvator
and Tenny. The fractional time of the
race is es follows : Quarter at 20; half
at 50J-, three-quarters at 1:17, mile at
1:33, mile and a quarter at 2:09 and mile
and a half in 2:35.
A Fuzzle to the Gamesters.
RooHKStra, N. Y., Aug. 13.'
sreat feature of day was the Flower
City $10,000 guarantee r stake, to which
the followers of the circuit had been
lookintr forward for some time. It
proved a great race. There were six
teen entries and twelve starters, and it
took six heats to finish it. Leopard
Rose, the "phenom," who did a mile m
this class m 2:10 in Cleveland, was a
hot favorite in the pools before the race
opened . but she only took" 6Se heat. She
was speedy, nut unsteady. Pixley, Budd
Doble s mare, took two heats, but the
race was won by Keno F, a compara
tive stranarer. whose dam is unknown.
This horse is owned by Bob Stewart of
Kansas (.Jitv. and is a remarkablv
steady trotter. Three of the heats were
inade in 2:17. which is the fastest ever
made hero in 2:30 class. Ine race was
a puzzle to the gamesters, and the bet-
ing was heavy.

Day In South Carolina The Mississippi
Washington, Aug. 13. In the senate
Mr. Quay introduced the following
KeHolved, That during the present session of
congress the senate will not take up for con
bideration any legislative business other than
the pending bill (the tariff bill) and general
appropriation bills: bills relating to publio

Resolved, That the consideration of all bills
other than such as are mentioned in the fore

session of congress to he held on the first Mon
day in December. ltfX).
Resolved, That the vote on the pending bill
and all amendments thereto shall be taken on
the 30th day d August, instant, at 2 o'clock p.
ra.. the voting to continue without further de
bate until the consideration of the bill and
the amendments is completed.
This is the first action on the Repub
lican side of the senate chamber against
the consideration of the federal election
bill at this session of congress. The
adoption of the resolution would be a
sitecific agreement to shelve the election
bill. While Mr. Quay's resolution may
not lw adopted, there seems little doubt
that the Republican senators, as stated
in the United Press dispatches on the
day the tariff bill was reported from
the finance committee, will agree to set
aside the election bill that the tariff bill
may be passed.
IT LOOKS LIKE A SPLIT.
' .jw It Seems In South Carolina on Con
Charleston, S. C, Aug. 13. The
state Democratic convention, which
meets at Columbia to-day, will decide
whether there will be a split in the
party or not. Tillman has 253 out of
the 3-0 delegates, and it is generally
thought he will try to get the nomina
tion, although the convention is called
to decide whotlr the state officers
shall be no?i;wited by the primary or
convention plau. If the primary plan
is not adopted a sltt will doubtless fol
low, for many A the county dela
tions are elected for both the present
convention and the coiivetitiou in Sep
tember, which i.-: to nominate omcnri.
These election are declarer ui-ai by
the Democratic executive committee,
and such delegates will not be recog
nized in September by the regullr
Democracy. Since Tillman's canvass of
the state the regular Democrats have
perfected org iuiiotions in almost every
county, and are prepared to fight to a
finish. There will be, in fact, two
Democratic conventions in session in
Columbia, for the straight-out Democ
racy will be there in full fprc, in $act,
they are already on the ground, A good
deal has been said about the negro vote.
Prominent Republican leaders now
openly say that there will be no Repub
lican state ticket in the field, but the
neerroes, if they take any part in the
election, will certainly not vote with the
Tulmanites. It is "raown that the negroes
have tieen used by the Tillmanites in
making up their Democratic rolls, upon
which representation in the county con
vention is based, but if it comes to a
split the majority of the negroes will
vote against lillman with tne more con
servative white voters of the state. On
the whole, it looks like a split whichever
way the cat jumps.
Dover, Del., Aug. 13. Col. W. H.
Stevens, chairman of the Democratic
state central committee, called the state
convention to order in the court house
hall at 12:45. The usual committees
were appointed. There were no con
tests. - Dr. E. W. Cooper was chosen
temporary chairman, and the commit
tees retired to consult. Before the con

New York, Aug. 13. Although the

Des Moines, An g. 13. The call is

meeting of the Head Camp of Modern
Woodmen, brought 1,500 delegates, rep
resenting ever' state where the order
exists. It was deemed advisable, how
ever, to respect the injunction issued by
Judge Tuthill of Chicago, forbidding
a meeting of the Head Camp, so the
delegations held a mass convention.
After a spirited session, the convention
adopted resolutions denouncing the
Illinois parties who secured the injunc
tion, fnrging the head officers to secure
its dissolution, and declaring in favor of
state insurance jurisdictions in states
having upwards of 4,000 members.
