    EAST ST. LOUIS DIET
' AFTERRACE RIOTS
Several Hundred Negroes Are
Driven Across River by
Mob; Troops Are Pa
troling Streets.
East St. Louis, III., May 29. With
wo companies o National Guards
men patroling tht street, quiet was
restored in tht city today after last
' night's rioting caused by attacks of a
mob open negroes. Many negroes
were beaten. The trouble was caused,
it u said, by the importation of negro
laborer.
Mayor Motlman today said 6,000
negroes had come into East St. Louis
in the last ix weeks and said he
would ask railroads to discontinue
hauling negroes here from the south.
Hundreds of negroes were driven
across the Mississippi river Into St.
Louis this, morning when a mob esti
mated from 2,000 to 3,000 started to
attack negroes in the streets, follow
ing a meeting of the city council,
, which was visited by members of the
Central Trades and Labor union to
ask that importations of negro labor
ers cease and on receiving word that
two white men had bees held up by
negroes. .
One Negro Wounded.
' Shots were fired at frequent in-,
' tervals, but only one negro has been
reported wounded in this manner.
William Taylor fled to St Louis, and
was found there unconscious with a
bullet wound in his head and three
ribs fractured.
The mob dispersed ahortly after 2
o'clock..
. Dozens of negroes were beaten, but
not more than twenty were hurt se-
- rionsly, it was estimated. All blacks
were seached and, if armed, they were
pummeled into unconsciousness.
Many negroes were given a refuge
' in jail. . About midnight a large crowd
surrounded the building and threat
ened to storm it The mob was dis
suaded, however, and rushed into the
'business sections, where street cars
were stopped and saloon searched.
' Several negro saloons were wrecked
and Mayor Hollman issued an order
for all bar in the city to shut down.
Police Unable to Check Mob.
'Riot talis brought out the entire
city police force, but the mob went
virtually unchecked. The Sixth Illi
nois infantry was called and put an-
' der arms, but took no active part to
quell the disturbance.
Many workmen here have been idle
on account of strikes and it is estimated
that at least 6,000 negroes have been
imported from tht south to take their
' place. .This influx has been going
on since January 1, but ha been es
pecially heavy in the last six weeks,

Kansas City, Hay 29. Every in-1
vestigaling agency of Hie federal gov
ernment in Kansas City was assigned
today to the task of learning if
i treasonable motives are responsible
. for injunction petitions seeking to
restrain operation of the army draft
registration law, which were filed in
the tate circuit court today. Hear
ing on the petition has been set for
Thursday at the request of J. D.
& Shewalter, attorney for the petition

state capital wa necessary tomorrov,
so he might prosecute mandamus
suit which he declared would ba filed
there against Governor F. D. Gardner
i and the state adjutant general, who,
hi petition asserts, "have been acting
m : in an oppressive manner."
As a result of anti-draft agitation

grand jury has been called for June

The injunction petition is signed by
Raymond I. Moor and Thomas R.

Tokk; May 29. "I am immensely
satisfied with conditions in Russia,

laid.
"Russia's war aims are similar to
America's," he continued. "A sister
democracies they are fighting hand-in-hand.
I am going to America with
complete diplomatic powers. I shall
take up questions of munitions, sup

was taken after he was shot, told the
court that he said to her, "Lady, I

Zurich, Switzerland, May 29. (Via

from Budapest says that Emperor
Charles has appointed Count Julius
Andrassy premier of Hungary,
There has been a vacancy in the
Hungarian premiership since May 23,
when Count Stephen Tissa, Austria
Hungary' "Iron man" and leader of
the pro-German party in the monar
chy, resigned his post.
Differencel with the throne over
the franchise reform measure were
assigned as a reason for the resigna
tion;. Count Tisza's proposal were
understood to be narrower in scope
than those which the monarchy fav
ored, Count Andrassy, a former premier
and long one of the most prominent
leaders uf the opposition to Count
Tissn's ministry, is regarded as a
liberal of the advanced type. With
Count Apponyi and other opposition

NEED MORE MEN FOR
PERSHING'S FORCE
War Department Figures Show
Volunteer System Weak;
Army and Guards Short
of War Strength.
Washington, May 29. War depart
ment officials are pointing to the daily
recruiting figures as proof anew that
that the volunteer system again rfas
broken down in time of national
emergency.
Yesterday's regular army recruiting
brought in 2,2.17 men, making a total
of 87,518 since April 1. Illinois was
first with 300 and New York second
with 295.
But army officers declare that a
great drive for: volunteers to fill the
army and National Guard to the new
war strength will be necessary unless
there is to. be serious delay in or
ganizing the newly authorized regi
ments. These, of course, are for the
regular army &nd quite apart from the
army to be raised by selective con
scription. Recruiting Slow. '
Despite the fact that the nation is
at war and American regulars are un
der orders for the fighting front in
France, less than 200,000 men have en
listed since April 1 in the regulars and
National Guard.
The present rate of enlistment
1,200 to 1,500 a day officials say,
must be increased to 10.000 or 20,000
a day if the forces "which in all prob
ability will be among the first to fol
low Major General Pershing's division
to Europe, are to go forward prompt
ly. Aft appeal to the country from
the president may be necessary to get
the men.
Guard Even Worse.
The National Guard is in even a
worse situation. The present total
strength of the force is less than
200,000, and raised to a war footing,
as has been ordered, should total 330,
000. In addition, the sixteen National
Guard division plan, on which the
War department is working, would re
quire nearly as many more to fill
necessary additional regiments.
The most striking fact in connec
tion with the recruiting rate for the
regulars, officers say, is that even the
announcement that General Pershing
would lead a division to France with
out delay failed utterly to stimulate
enlistment. The daily average recruit
ing has dwindled steadily.
If voluntary enlistment fails, despite
the recruiting campaigns that are in
prospect, the only recourse will be to
fill up the regulars and National Guard
with men selected for military service
under the draft.
