Br.rr Mill In h City Visited la
Mad Rub of Hlutera and a Sera
of Devastation la Pre
tATERSON, N. J.. June IS. This city
was In the hands of a mob today and aa a
result of the riots a number of persons
were shot and two at least will die. The
police were so few In number that they
could make little headway against the mob.
Mills were wrecked with stones and bul
lets by the striking silk dyers' helpers or
roughs acting (or them and there were
threats to resort to the torch, but so far
the mayor hesitates about asking Got renor
Murphy for troops. There seems to be
every Indication that the riot was the re
sult of a prearranged plan to Involve the
would-be peaceable element In the affair
from the start. Among the leaders of the
trouble was a man named McQueen and
another named Oallaneo. the former an
Englishman and the latter an Italian.
Others, agents of anarchist circles have
been quietly fanning the flames. This
morning Chairman McOrath, who has heM
the strikers In leash since he first gained
control on the first day of the strike, was
on band. eH spoke, as did McQueen and
Galleano. Then McQueen leaped Into cob
trol of the meeting. He called for a vote
on the question of calling a general atrlke
of all branches of the silk trade. All voted
In favor and a committee was appointed to
consider means for bringing the silk work-
era out. Oallaneo was one of this com
mittee. It gathered amid a babel of
tongues and a scene of confusion.
Rash for Ike Mills.
Five minutes later Oallaneo emerged
from the, group, shouting something In Ital
ian. Instantly a mob had formed about
him. Into It rushed the Italians and the
oher foreigners and a moment later the
mob, led by Oallaneo, swept down Belmont
avenue. A qparter of a mile down Belmont
avenue stands the Columbia mill, a silk
ribbon factory. The doors had been locked
when the mob appeared, but they forced
them open and with the crash of the doora
came a volley of stones which riddled the
windows In the front of the building.
President Grossgebaner telephoned for
the police. Btones rained Into the office
and flew about his head. Twenty young
women on the first floor stood at bay and
threatened to fight and the weavers on the
recond floor ran down to ttelr aid. but all
were forced out of the mill. The mob then
wept on down Belmont avenue. BevernVi
members of the Oroup of Existence, Breed's
eld comrades, with Galleano at their head,
were In the, lead. A half mile march
brought the mob to the Cedar Cliff mill,
where they atayed until all the operatives
were out. Just beyond the Cedar Cliff Is
the Rhlnewarner mill.
The doors were burst open there and the
men and girls were found ready to go out.
The mill was closed. The next place vis
ited was a cotton braid factory. It seemed
to make no difference to the mob whether
It was In any way connected with the
Ilk trade or not.
Women Workers Hysterical.
The women became hysttrlcal as the
bowling rioters climbed in windows and
burst In the doors. Mr. Relnhart, the
owner, ordered his employes to quit tor
the day. The mob rushed through the cot
ton works and did much damage and then
poured on down the street to Bamford Bros.
mill. Here four policemen faced the mob
for five minutes, telling them that the era
ployes had gone out by the rear and the
works were closed down, but they were un
able to prevent serious damage being done
to the property and were themselves badly
beaten. A sign "Dyers' Helpers Wanted,
displayed at the mill entrance, particularly
enraged the rioters.
A section of the mob went to the Bam
ford home close by. The police sought to
bead them off, and did so, but a shot was
fired and a bullet went through Patrolman
Robinson's right arm. It staggered him
and as he was regaining his feet a Jagged
stone hit him on the bead, laying open the
scalp. Supported by bis comrades, Rob
inson was taken to the Bamford home
The remaining three drove back the mob
from the house and the attack on the mill
aa renewed. The young women In the
mill tried to get out and were driven back,
but escaped later by the rear.
Martha Huyser was struck by a stone
and one of her arms badly hurt. A
porter wno was in the mill was bit on
the bead with a atone and bis scalp laid
open. The mob swarmed into the mill and
It would have been wrecked, inside as well
as out, had not a patrol wagon loaded
with officers charged through the mob on
Cliff street. . Stones rained down on the
wagon and none of the officers escaped.
Officers Draw Revolvers.
Patrolman Irving Post saw a man burl
a rock and fired, the bullet striking the
rioter in the neck. Before the officers
could get to the man he was baulfd into
the mob and burred away. With revolvers
drawn the officers quickly deployed and the
mob fell back. A block away Galleano
again appeared and led the mob through
Tempi street to Pelgram Myers' mill
wner the employes were compelled to
Flushed with sucoess, the mob pushed
across the Main street bridge to the New
Jersey Silk company's establishment, where
the employes were driven out. At Levy's
mill. River and Bridge streets, the man
ager met the mob at the door and assured
the lesders that the employes were pre
paring t leave. When the mill was
emptied the strikers moved on,, passing on
through River street to the Laurel, the
Empire and tbs Augusta mills, where only
Patrolmen Fields and Titus were on guard
and were powerless against the mob. Tb
managers of the three mills had deter
mined to empty their mills, and two of
them did so, but the Augusta mill was
attll full, though shut down. The mo
found this out and burst In. They found
themselves face to face with the women
of the mill, led by Mrs. Parker, deter
sained to stand their ground. The women

... . ;
WASHINGTON, June 18. The near ap
proach of the end of the present session of
.ongress was slgnallxed by a general po
' speech by Mr. Richardson of Tenn
th leader of the minority. Taking
a. Jtage of th latitude allowed during
th debate, ha delivered a aet speerb of
over an hour and a half. He arraigned
the republican party for its failure to keep
Its platform promises, dwelling especially
on the question of trusts snd the necessity
for tariff reduction. Mr. Shallenberger
(dem.) of Nebraska also made a political
speech, condemning the administration for
removing Miss Taylor, a clerk In the War
department for criticising Its Philippine
policy, and for 'Justifying General Wood's
expenditures for the promotion of recipro
city legislation. Mr. Cannon, chairman of
the appropriation committee. In a brief
reply to both speeches, said he was ready
to go to the country on the record of the
republican party. He caused much merri
ment on his side of the bouse by describing
the republican party as pulling the wagon
while the democrats stood off and found
fault. Mr. Bartlett (dem.) of Georgia of
fered an amendment to the deficiency bill
to reimburse the Cuban revenues for the
salary allowed by Secretary Root to Gen
era! Wood out of the Island revenues. In
the course of some remarks early In the
session Mr. Cannon declared that If he
could have his way congress would adjourn
sin dla before July 4. The general de
ficiency appropriation bill, the last of the
supply bills, was passed. A night session
was held, at which the house considered
bills reported from the committee on In
Load Raises Opposition.
Mr. Underwood of Alabama, at the re
quest of Mr. Stephens of Texas, entered a
motion to reconsider the vote by which the
bill to open 480,000 acres In the Kiowa,
Comanche and Apache reservations In Ok
lahoma waa defeated at the session last
night. He said he would not press the
motion at this time.
The house then went Into committee of
the whole and entered upon the considera
tion of the general deficiency appropriation
While Mr. Cannon, who was In charge
of the bill, was trying to arrange for the
division of time he announced that If he
could have his way congress would adjourn
alnp die before July 4. The announcement
was greeted with applause on both sides
of the house. It was arranged that general
debate ahould extend for two and one-half
Mr. Loud of California, under the latitude
allowed In general debate, submitted some
remarks upon th question of salaries for
postal employes. He said that be believed
that the government should pay liberal
salaries as high aa private corporations,
but no higher. No . employment In th
government service, hi maintained, should
have advantage over private employment.
A government employ had liberal leaves of
absence. His employment was continuous
whether times were good or bad.
While there was, bo said, a steady agita
tion for the Increase of the pay of postal
clerks, railway mall clerks and letter car
Hers, the particular agitation was for the
increase of the pay of the latter clasa from
an average of $918 to $1,200 a year. He
declared that, all circumstances considered.
the pay of the letter carriers was the high
est for the service performed of that of any
branch of the government service. He
undertook to show, comparatively speaking,
that it the letter carriers ahould receive
$1,200 the railway mall clerks, whoss sala
ries average $1,020, should get $1,600.
At the conclusion of Mr. Loud's remarks,
Mr. Richardson of Tennessee, minority
leader, took the floor. The republican party
he said, bad absolute control of all branches
of the government for six years. He pro
posed to examine Into ita trusteeship.
When Mr. Richardson declared that the
democrata were willing to remain In ses
sion until the snow flew In order to glv
th people some relief from tariff taxa
tton his democratic colleagues gave him a
round of applause.
Mr. Shallenberger of Nebraska briefly
condemned the action of th secretary of
war In dismissing Miss Taylor,. a clerk In
the War department, for criticising th ad
Warm Word by Cannon.
Mr. Cannon made a brief reply to the
speeches of Mr. Richardson and Mr. Shal
lenberger and aroused great enthusiasm on
the republican side of the house.
J' listened with care, for almost an hour
and a half," said Mr. Cannon, "to the re
mark of tb gentleman from Tennessee,
the leader on the other side of the house
and after listening to blm I am here to
confess that on this side of tb house, and
I rather suspect on that side of th house
the mlllenlum haa not yet come. (Laugh
ter.) We are not perfect, and we do not
claim to be. We pull the wagon and we do
th work, and you find tha fault. You have
been at that now for over a generation, and
still we have pulled along. (Laughter and
applause.) It does you good and I do not
think It hurts us. (Laughter and applause.)
You had full power under Cleveland. You
come In power partially from time to time,
but then you bad full power. It la recent
from 1893 to 1887. Don't you wish you
could blot but the recollection of the man
ner In which you exercised It? (Laughter
and applause on the republican side.) And
for gall and cheek, with the recent per
formanc now when w are doing th best
w can, meeting every obligation, 'the coun
try prospering, paased through the war

of that war and solving them with courage
notwithstanding the criticism and opposl
tton. gentlemen or your party, still you
cold. It is ths way of the world. Go on
I do not think you can fool th people
The bill was then read for amendment
under the flve-mlnut rule.
Bartlett Offer Amendment.
Mr. Barueu or ueorgia onrered as an
amendment to appropriate $25,600 to relm

Mr. Cannon sarcastlcrlly, "I am compelled

S NEARING A FINAL VOTE
atereat In Isthmian Canal Qaestlon
Steadily laereaaea aa the
Days Go By,
WASHINGTON, June 18. Interest In the
Isthmian canal question Increases as the
time for a final vote in the senate ap
proaches. Tomorrow at 2 o'clock the vot
ing on the amendments to the pending
Nicaragua canal bill will begin and a final
Isposttlon of the matter is expected to be
reached soon afterward.
The senate today devoted Its entire ses
sion to the consideration of the canal ques
tion. Extended speeches were delivered by
Mr. Spooner of Wisconsin and Mr. Hanna
of Ohio In advocacy of the adoption of the
Panama route and Mr. Pettus of Alabama
advocated the selection of the Nicaragua
rout. Mr. Teller of Colorado briefly an
nounced hla support of the Panama project,
while Mr. Jones of Arkansas Indicated bis
leanings toward the same route.
Little that Is new waa developed by any
of the speakers.
Taylor Fase Called t'p.
When the senate convened Mr. Allison
called up the house resolution providing
that the conference committee on the sun
dry civil appropriation bill be authorized
to consider and recommend the Inclusion of
necessary appropriations to carry out the
several objects authorized in the omnibus
public buildings bill and it was agreed to.
A bill to restore to the active list of
the navy Surgeon John Walton Ross, as
medical director was passed.
A resolution offered aeveral days ago by
Mr. Carmack, directing the civil servtco
ommlttee to Inquire Into the discharge
from the War department of Miss Rebecca
Taylor (for tha publication of articles
In newspapers criticising the president)
waa called up and Mr. Carmack addressed
the senate In support of the resolution.
He maintained that the requirements of the
civil service lw had been flagrantly vio
lated In this case, inasmuch as he said Miss
Taylor had had no charges preferred
against her, nor had she been afforded op
portunity to make answer to any charges.
He maintained that a letter Inquiring
whether Miss Taylor was the author of a
certain newspaper article, and her admis
sion that she had written the article, did
not constitute a charge against her within
the meaning of the civil service law. He
intimated that she was discharged "be
cause she took the wrong side of the
Philippine question from the administra
tion point of view."
At the conclusion of Mr. Carmack's re
marks the Isthmian canal question was laid
before the senate.
Mr. Jones of Arkansaa believed It to be
the duty of every senator to vote for the
canal at the best location. Personally, ha
said, he would not vote for the proposition
that yould Impede the progress of the ca
nal's construction. He was not willing to
brush aside the unanimous report of the
Isthmian commission In favor of the
Panama rout, unless It be for substantial
reasons. He favored th Panama route,
but would not vote for It If there were any
doubt of the good faith of th offer.
He desired Mr. Spooner, who wss about
to address the senate, to explain the charge
that the adoption of the. Panama route waa
to have no canal at ail.
Spooner on Canal BUI.
In beginning hla speech la support of
bis own proposition, Mr. Spooner aald the
construction of an Isthmian canal war a
colossal enterprise and one which be be
lieved the American people with notably
little division of sentiment, desired should
be inaugurated and carried forward. No
higher or more solemn duty ever tested
upon men in publlo life than to determine
this question rightfully.
Mr. Spooner eulogized the Isthmian canal
commission, declaring that nobody would
attempt to impeach its integrity, ability or
engineering skill. All knew that the ob
ject of appointing the commission was to
afford congress the data and expert opinion
which would enable It to proceed conserve
ttvely and wisely. He declared that th
eyes of the American people had not been
focused simply upon the Nicaragua route,
From the time the commission was ap
pointed, it had not been a question of a
canal (as all favored that), but merely a
question of route.
Mr. Teller of Colorado maintained that
practically there was no authority for the
building of a canal by either the Nicaragua
or Panama routes.
Mr. Hanna then began bis closing argu
ment In support of the adoption of the
Panama route. Tbe member of the
Isthmian Canal commission, be said, had
been appointed because of their ability,
integrity and engineering skill and he pre
sented answers to questions be had pro
pounded to them, tha answers being par
ticularly In favor of the Panama route.
He maintained that both the Panama and
Nicaragua routes were perfectly feasible
and practicable, but aald the preponder
ance of ths evidence In band was in favor
Mr. Hawley read from a document to
show that the climate at Panama waa i
deadly one and insisted that on that ac
count th United States should not select
In advocating the adoption of the Nlca
rauga rout Mr. Pettua declared that th
American people wanted and would have
an isthmian canal to be built, owned and
controlled by tbe United State. '
Th District of Columbia appropriation
bill -was sent to conference, and Mr,
Spooner offered aome amendments Intended
to perfect hla substitute. At o'clock th

NORBECK IS STILL MISSING
Alleged Minneapolis Briber Oavaaot
Be Foaad and Detective Is Sup
posed to Hav Been Kidnaped.
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., June 18. Chris
topher Norbeck, whose trial for bribery
was brought to a pause yesterday by his
disappearance. Is still missing. The opin
ion that Norbeck la In Minneapolis or St.
Paul gains ground. Tbe fact that ha was
seen Intoxicated aa late as 5 o'clock yes
terday morning aupports this theory. The
newspapera hav received mysterious of
fers by telephone to turn up Norbeck for
$500 In addition to the 1100 offered by his
bondsmen, but tb .person telephoning
hangs up the instrument before terms cap
be com to. Thla has led to the theory
that tb detective waa kidnaped and is
being held by some on for reward or
ransom. The organized labor friends of
Detective Harvey. In jail charged with per
Jury and bribery, hav banded together and
promise to raise bis 15,000 ball. Maryor

LINCOLN, June 18. (Special Telegram.)
This ticket 'was nominated by th repub
licans of Nebraska In one of the most nu
merously attended, most enthusiastic, most
stubbornly contested and most protracted
state conventlona in the history of ths
party. There was the most extreme ten
sion and at several polnta In tb proceed
ings it seemed that the chief prli. th
governorship, waa about to be snatched,
now by this candidate, now by another,
until Anally the award was made with al
most unanimity. Tbe contest for the gov
ernorship gave room for a display of po
litical maneuvering and finesse that called
Into requisition all the shrewdness of th
most astute and experienced politicians In
Nebraska. It waa a battle royal, waged
for mor than seven hours, in which- th
forces were marshaled and deployed under
skilled generalship that seemed almost
equally maicnea on Dotn aides.
On bv one wesker ruiilMaf
forced off tbe Held, one column advance
and another pulled back, taxing the stay lor
qualities of the supporters of th different
spirant to tns very utmoiL
Th first ballot for aovernor disclosed tha .
different candidates about th relative po
sitions which bad been Indicated by Th
Bee In Ita forecast or tb conventon. Rob
ertson of Madison led with 2SJ votes with
Black of Franklin a close second, with 102,
mostly from the Fifth district Wilson of
Lancaster, Mickey of Polk, Jessen of Otoe.
Sears of Burt and Dlnsmore of Clav nn ail
bunched close together between 100 and 150.
only three scattering votes were recorded,
two of them for Governor Savaee.
which came from his home county, Custer,
sna in otner from Nemaha. The plan of
action was readily visible. In th North
Piatt Robertson and Sears stood to the
front, but while Robertson had hi reserve
strength massed. Sears was unable to draw
in recruits and gradually fell behind. In
the South Platte, while Black was In th
lead, all the others continued to grow snd
Dlnsmore soon took sn Impetus that made
him the leader over all.
Van Dusen Pull Oat.
The second ballot eliminated Van Dusen.
whose name was nestly withdrawn by a few
words by Judge Baxter. Sears remained
In th race until after the ninth ballot, and
Wilson made bis exit at tbe same time.
Dlnsmor reached hla maximum on tb
sixth ballot, when he went up to 419, al
though he regained most of his strength
again ater tbe supper recess, when be
reached 414 on tb eleventh ballot. Rob
ertson's maximum, Strang to say, was
also reached on th sixth ballot, when he
registered 382. from which he gradually
fell off until ha finally withdrew In favor
of Mickey when Madison waa reached oa
the twelfth roll call.
It had been seen by th men behind Rob
ertson that he could not make th goal
from the time that ha began to lose, and
all their ffort were directed to prevent
ing the success of Dlnsmor, who waa hla
chief opponent. To do this a feeler waa
put out for a rally behind Jeasen. Vote
known to belong to tha Robertson contin
gent were sent to Jessen, beginning with
the seventh ballot, and a few straggler'
from the aara camp war planted with '
Wilson, the Lancaster county candidate, to
make sure that no Junction waa formed
between Wilson and Dlnsmor. The earn
tactic were pursued with Black and
Mickey, the plan being plainly apparent
and well supported with organised rooter
In the gallery. Jessen stock. waa on tb
boom without question, on th eighth and
ninth ballots, Just previous to tb recess.
It turned out, however, that th old soldier
element outweighed th new soldier cle
ment in tht convention. Finding thslr ad
vances not sufficiently encouraged when
the delegates reconvened after supper, tb
Robertson line suddenly broke on th
twelfth ballot and sent a flying squadron
htat Included nearly ita entire fore to
Mickey as a second choice, t'nder tht
attack the Dlnsmore forces wavrd, but
they did not break. A number of counties
changed their votes to Mickey, after th
roll had been completed, but befor th
roll waa announcod.
For a moment It waa thought that Mickey
bad th necessary majority and cheer upon
cheer rent th air, but it was a falae alarm.
When tbe figures were added it waa found
that he had atopped short at 475 and neaded
another fifty votea to insure a nomination.
Strang to aay, it waa ths thirteenth ballot
that proved lucky for Mickey and unlucky
for hla competitors. Hla nomination area
Inevitable as soon as tb roll call pro
ceeded, after Douglaa county had swung
Into tbe Mickey line with Its entire ninety
flv votes, which had previously been
thrown practically solid to Dlnsmore, th
rest would have been a mere formality. Th
chairman cf Dlnsmore'. Clay county, dele
gation managed, amidst wild excitement, to
secure recognition from the chairman and
to more suspension ef th nil. Baking
