a il their aynijiathlzorH on the one
"tie, and the police and the nonunion
ncii on the other. There were rlotH
in nil parts of the city. Men were
tlnliliutl and stoned almost to death
vlthln a miunro or police hoadciuattcrs
and live mllcH aWay men were Hhot
sewn in the streets. At a hundred
places between these two extremes or
llstiirhaiice there woie assaults and
niihts in the streets, lllood was shed
'n State sticet, In the heart of the
loahlonnlilo shopping districl, and f ti
rlous riots tool; jilace almost In the
coorwnys or tho leailliiK hotel. Non
union men were pelted with stones,
l-richs and every other conceivable
utrt of missiles. They were dniBBcd
from their wagons, beaten, clubbed
mid stamped upon. The mobs that
billowed the wagons on which they
potle were ugly In the extreme. Hut for
the splendid service rendered by the
police force, the list of dead would be
twenty, Instead of one.
Nonunion Men Fight Desperately.
In return the nonunion men, although
hopelessly outnumbered In every
struggle, fought desperately. In sev
ernl Instances they drew their re
volvers nnd emptied them Into tho
ciowds that pressed around their
wagons, pelting them with stones and
th rcn tenlng their lives. The colored
drivers especially were iiulck with
their weapons. Large numbers of the
nonunion drivers cnrrled heavy clubs,
' and they Bwung them with terrlllc ef
fect thioughout the dny. As far as
can be ascertained, the list of In
jured numbers in the neighborhood of
Ufty, but It Is far short or being accu
tate. Many mon who were In the
mobs that attacked tho wagons went
down before the clubs of the police
und of the wngon guards, but they
were cnrrled nway by their friends.
Charles Reird was struck on tho
torohend In a fight near the Audltor-
Ivni hotel and died of a fractured
thull in tho hospital.
Four Shot In Riot.
Four men weio shot ai Polk street
1 tfid Cnllfornln avenue as the result of
in attempt of an expressman to de
liver goods on the far West side with
out police protection.
During a riot at Halstcad and Erlo
itreeth, which lasted for an hour, anil
in which fully 1,000 people were on
Alport, three policemen and three non
union men were injuicd, and twice as
many rioters were clubbed.
Men walking along the streets, who

hoodlums, who beat them lirst and lat

nr. A notable Instance of this kind
whf that of Rev. V. K. Wheeler,
pastor of the Ninth Presbyterlun
church, who while passing the corner
of UespIalneK and Adams streets on
fciK way to the Pennsylvania depot,
wiip attacked by three men, who
Knocked him down and beat him un
mercifully, until the timely arrlvnl of
the police saved him from critical In
jury. Mr. Wheeler managed to hoid
one of his assailants until the police
could arrest him.
Tho outlook Is for more lighting,
and there Is not the slightest evidence
of the approaching end of the strike.
The strike did not spiead In any
degree. No more men were called
cut and fiom present appeal auces
there Is no Immediate prospect that
ajiy more teamsters will strike.
First Round for Strikers.
The htrike assumed a peculiar aspect
nd the Interests which have been
opposing the striking teamsters aro
iot as united as heretolore. The
ctuif-e of this dissension Is the Team
Owners' association, which has con
tracts with the railroads and many ot
tho large Anns throughout the city, to
orunsfcr their merchandise. It was
supposed that the Employers' associa
tion and their allies were llrnily hound
together In the fight for supremacy
gainst the teamsters. The Team
Owners' association, which employs
none but union teamsters, tlatly re
tused to make deliveries to any of
the firms now Involved In the strike.
when ordered to do so by the Employ,
trs association. When the employers
tecelved this ultimatum they untitled
fine team owners that unless they
nocognlzed the request that no dis
crimination be made In deliveries an
effort would he mnde to have all ex
Utlng contracts between the team
owners and tho business houses nun
the railroads, amounting to millions
nf dollars annually, cancelled. Tho
ti'iim owners gave as reasons for their
wlusnl that their own men would be
nllod out and they would bo Involved
li the trouble, with which thoy con
bidet ed thoy had no direct concern.
The railroad mon took tho same stand,
declaring that tho fight was some
thing Into which tho rnllroadH did not
properly enter, that they had con
tracts with tho team ownerH which
were being fulfilled to their entire
Ratlsractlon, nnd they could boo no
jenson why the railroads should he
dragged Into the Htnikglo.

Andrews on "Tainted Money."
Lincoln, May 3. In an address to
the students of the University of Ne
braska, Chancellor E. Henjninin Au
di ows decried the spirit which pro-
Cnptaln Rnlbourn hud been di inking motei, people to refuse gilts of "taint
heavily, and tho tragedy was an out
growth of his arrest on Tuesday last
on a churge of drunkenness and ab
sence without leave.
Worry over the probability of a dis
honorable discharge fiom the army
and dissipation are believed to havo
unbalanced his mind. Captain Hal-
bourn enlisted In tho army in 1891 ns
a private anil had worked his way up
from the ranks. Captain Haibourn i
and Lieutenant Point had served to- !
gother In the Philippines and were
firm friends. Lieutenant Point en
tered the army as captain of the Fifty-first
Iowa volunteers and later was
appointed to the regular service. He
has passed the examination and qual
ified for piomotlon to a captaincy. J

Defendant Still Feels Confident of Ver
dict of Acquittal. i
New York. May 3. The fate or Nan
Patterson, in her third trial for the
murder or "Caesar" Young, Is In tho
hands or tho Jury. Recorder Ooff de
livered the charge to the jury at the
opening of court today and it retired
to consider a verdict.
At the close of the argument, after
Prosecutor Hand had arraigned her in
the most scathing terms, had asserted
that her silence In this trial was a
confession of her guilt, had declared
that her sister had lied on the stand
ami that her counsel had based his
plea for her lire on a foundation of
ftbrlcntlons, Nan Patterson said she
still felt confident the jury will bring
In an early verdict of acquittal.
"Mr. Hand Is a line orator," she de
clared, "hut I know those twelve men
will not hang a girl on oratory." I
Mr. Hand devoted a large part of
1.1s speech to a defense of himself
and his methods in the present trial.
He declared the charges mnde against
him by Abraham Levy, attorney for
the defense, were unjust nnd mislead
ing. He denied that he had been ,
guilty of suppressing evidence that .
might have helped the Patterson girl. '

Rains of the Past Week Delay Farm
Work, but Some Corn is Planted.
Lincoln, May 3. Tho ruins of the
week were beneficial to vegetation
generally. The wet condition of the
soil prevented work In tho fields for
nearly half or the week. Plowing for
corn is nearly finished in central and
southern counties and Is well ad
vanced In northern. A llttlo corn was
r hinted in southern counties, but tho
cold, wet condition of the soil pre
vented much progress even In south
ern counties. Winter wheat continues
in excellent condition. Oats have
grown rather slowly, but are recover
ing nicely from the effects or the
lreozing weather. Grass continues to
grow slowly and is backward In north
cm nnd northwestern counties. Fruit
generally is less damaged than was
at first supposed.

Defaulting Bank President Files a Vol

Milwaukee, April 28. Frank G.
Illgelow, the defaulting bank presi
dent, has confessed an Indebtedness
to banks, commercial institutions and
estates of which he had charge, which
will aggregate $3,277,000, and, based
on his confession a voluntary petition
in bankruptcy has been filed in the
United States district court, which
contains the names or as many or Mr.
Rigelow's creditors as he can remem
ber, together with a list of assets oi
which Mr. Rigelow's valuation Is $1,-
Ry his own admission his creditors
extend all over the United States.
Ono estate has been looted, his In
debtedness to the Hrondhead estate
being $100,000. The debt Is unse
cured. It Is also believed other trusts
held by the former blinker havo suf
fered. Those familiar with the situa
tion and with what Information they
can glean from tho former banker,
fear Ills liabilities will run up to con
siderably more than his recent esti
mate, as they believe subsequent
levelatlons will show transactions of
even a more startling nature. I

Evidence Against Johann Hoch.
