ROMS, April 8. The aspect of Rome
was completely changed early today. The
gay crowded city of yesterday seemed dead,

The shops were open but the shutters
were up as the proprietors Intended to be

apprehensive of rioting and feared, as on
other occasions that their windows would

The whole city was occupied by troops.
" Detachments of cavalry were posted on the
squares and special details of soldiers and
police were stationed around the Vatican
to prevent any attempt against the papal
Foreigners continue to leave Rome but
many of them cannot get away as they are
far from the railroad station, and no cabs
being obtainable the hotel omnibuses can
carry only a llhtted number of passepgers.
Perelanere May Leave.
If the strike continues and all the for
eigners leave the rlty It is said tho
boarding bousn keepers alone will lose on
an average $16,00d dally.
Unimportant eucouniers between the
strikers -and. troops took place during the
morning, the former wishing to hold meet

It failed. '
1 Five hundred French pilgrims arrived
here today and had. some "startling; experi
ences. They got off at a station on the out
skirts of Rome so as to avoid going through
the city, but there were no cabs and all
kinds of wagons and carts were hired to
take the pilgrims baggage.
The men and women of the party arrived
at the Garibaldi bridge Just as a detachment
of cavalry charged a mob and a scene of
indescribable confusion ensued. With
screams and 'shouts the pilgrims in their
efforts to 'escape were scattered in all
About the middle of the day the strikers
succeeded in gathering In threatening
numbers on the Corso Vlttorio Emanuele,

detachments of troops charged, fired

a dozen men were reported to have been
The officials reported that order had been
completely re-established since noon, but
Rome was still occupied by the military
forces and the general strike continued.
Many strikers were arrested during the
The government has determined to have
a sufficient force of troops on , hand to
maintain order under any circumstances
and haa issued instructions to send ten
more battalions to Rome.
The pope was much interested In the
particulars of the strike. He said: "It is
a sword with two edges."
He also expressed sorrow at the damage
done to the Interests of the city and also
because the strike Interfered with the re
ligious ceremonies of Easter. ,
Instructions were Issued to close the
churches wherever disturbance occurred
and the prelates of St. Peter's met during
the day to decide whether or not to suspend
the Easter services, fearing that the strik
ers may enter St. Peter's and provoke dis
order. The leader of the socialist has decided
to propose that the differences between the
typesetters and tbelr employers should be
settled by arbitration. This proposition is
likely to be accepted. In which case the
general strike will be over.
THE HAGUE, April 8 The proposed
bakers' strike in sympathy with the gen

phone, sanitary and water services, but
it is believed that only a third of the men
will respond to the strike call, and that the
military will be .employed to maintain the
public services. - , . . ,
In authoritative quarter it is believed
the- strike as an organized movement Is
doomed to failure and that the govern

COLUMBIA. S. C, April 8. Mr. Colonel

the murder of Editor Gonzales.- He asked
that the case be put back till June.
