Micek refused to file a complaint so

that he was mistaken. Mrs. Swullow
said John got drank every time he
came to town and that this time he
had been away from home on a two
days drank. She said she didn't care
if he did go to" jail fhe would never
pay any money for him.
John insisted that he was not drank
and therefore said "not guilty" to the
charge. He demonstrated that he was
not drank by showing that ho could
walk, with many staggerings to Le
sure, but witbont "lying down." And
here was where Chief Schack 's fun

Following the Hockonberger-Nich-ols
wedding yesterday, tho wedding
guests had a joyfnl time starting the
happy couple on their bridal journey.
Train No S was an hour late and Mr.
and Mrs. Nichols barricaded them
selves in a cab in the middle or the
muddy street whither the mob could
not go in their wedding finery. They
had to content themselves with heav
ing rice at long range at Clyde Scott
who was driving the cab.
When an opportunity was fouud tc
storm the fortifications, Mr. Nichols
put up such a gallant article of resis
tance that the glass door of the cab
was brocen and Mr. Nichols' hand was
slightly cut by -the glass. Dr Platz
was ready with first aid to tho injur
ed and the battle proceeded. Having
! spilt blood in defence of his bride, Mr.
Nichold boat a retreat from the cab
to the train which bad arrived mean
time. The fleeing couple were delug
ed with rine and pursued by the whole
company into tbe car. The colored
porter, who in his mine's eye saw
himself sweeping up a bushel or two
of rice the next morning, declaimed
eloquently against the foolishness of
wedding parties in general.
Another newly weddtil couplo were
at tho depot to take tho same train,

SOLDIERS BEGAN THE MASSACRZ
Many of the Victims, of Czar's Cos

Popular Irritation Not Concealed
and More Trouble is Expected.
Warsaw, May 3. Tho May day
death roll totaled sixty-two, including
ten persons who died in tho hospitals
during the night. Probably 200 were
Crowds gathered at the Tenth dis
trict police station, whero thirty vic
tims, men nnd women and three chil
oren, were awaiting identification.
Sonic minor disturbances occurred in
different sections of the city, but co
casualties have yet been reported.
All day long infantry and cavalry
patrolled the streets, which were
crowded with people, who did not
pare their criticism of what was gen
erally termed unnecessary slaughter.
The popular irritation could not be
concealed. The soldiers evidently
were nervous and open outbreaks, re
mitting in a repetition of Monday's
terrible scenes, were only averted by
the evident desire of tho authorities
to prevent a clash, coupled with the
ftnr inspired by the soldiers' bullets.
The population is most bitter against
tbe military and government officials
expect many attempts at revenge on
the officers, all of whom are known.
The workmen at all the factories
have -struck and great efforts are be
ing made to bring about a genera!
strike, but this is not likely to be suc
cessful. The people have not recov
ered from the exhaustion and losses
resulting from the last strike. Re
ports conflict regarding the beginning
of Monday's encounter In Jerusalem
street. According to the most gen
erally accepted version the authorities
had forbidden workingmen marching
in proccssicn to carry red flags, but
the workmen, however, decided to
ignore the order. When the proces
sion reached Jerusalem street tho po
lice ordered the workmen to stop, but
they refused to do so and a police of
ficer thereupon fired a revolver, giving
a signal for the infantry to fire. It
appears that in other cases the demon
strators were the aggressors, but that
in this instance the soldiers fired first.
The industrial population is deeply
exasperated over the sanguinary re
mits of tho encounters. The strikes
inaugurated on a large scale here, at
jtny. and in other cities are rapidly
spreading and 75.000 persons are on

kon played a part and was fined.
W. D. Benson, Al Duncan and C.
A. Beardsley appeared in person nnd
complained of tho two "houses"
south of tho track. They said that
the piano music and dancing at. all
hoars of tbe night, and the uso of
indecent language by tho people who
patronize those places as they pass
along the streets, exert an evil in
fluence on their families, which as
taxpayers they felt they had right to
resist. Councilman Chirk said that the
citizens of that part cfCoIumbns paid
taxes the same as other people and
that their homos should have the
same protection. No action was tafcon
on the complaint becausu it was not
made in writing. It was understood
that the complainants would file a
written complaint before the next
meeting of tho council asking to have
tbecse places closed.

Just before the council adjourned,
Councilman Gni-en got tho floor
and read a resolution naming the Co
lumbus Telegram as the official paper
of the city to be paid for advertising
50 per cent of th b-gal rate, and pro
poseing that the city job work be
awarded to the lowest local bidder.
The Jonrnal had called attention last
week to the fact that tho former Tele
gram resolution calied for not only
the legal advertising, but nlso the job
work of the city as a part of the
"spoils." The flreiten resolution
last night recognized the point raised
by the Jonrnal. by separating tho ad-
vertisng from tho job work. It wa?
evidently thought that this concession
would trap councilman Clark, who it
was known, favored placing the print
ing on a business basis. But u didn't
work. Clark. Gray and Galley stood
together and on motion of Galley,
amended the Greisen resolution so
that it required the soliciting of bids
for both the advertising and the job
work. Greisen, Dietrichs nnd
Zinnecker voted for the Telegram but
Mayor Dickinson decided against
them. Thus died the Telegram's
