TI12 Lowell Strike.
Lowell, Mass., Special. Acting un
der the law, the State board of arbi
tration and conciliation formally re
quested the mill agents and the Tex
tile Council of this city to submit the
question of a wage increase in the cot
ion mills in the city to arbitration, tc
avoid a strike next Monday. Both
sides have the request under consider
ation. Very slight hope, however, is
entertained by the citizens of Lowell
that the State board's request will be
granted. The mill agents repeatedly
have expressed their opinions that a
wage increase is impossible and the
textile council having in view last
years' result of a civic board of arbi
tration has said since receiving the re
quest that it did not care to be trap
ped as they say they were last year,
when after a strike was declared off
nothing was done to advance their in
terests. flay Be Hanged.
Roanoke, Va., Special. A special
from Bluefield to The Times says:
"Harvey Williams, a burly negro, to
day outraged Mary Jones, the 13-year-old
daughter of a respectable white
miner and left her for dead on the
mountain between Pocahontas. Va.,
and Cooper, V. Va. After regaining
consciousness, the child managed to
reach her home, where she told what
had happened. The story spread rap
idly and posses went in search of Wil
liams. He was located near Pocahon
tas and taken to Bramwell, where he
was lodged in jail. The jail is being
heavily guarded tonight, but informa
tion from Bramwell points to a lynch
ing and probably a burning before
daylight. Williams' victim will die."

int"; been reached previously with
Senators Iiustamente. Capote and
Doiz. comnosin-r the maioritv of the
fo'ei.sn relations committee with he
objectionable condition in the report
b. :ng eliminated. This was done by
the offering of amendments by other
ocrninistration Senators substituting
the unconditional adoption of the
amendments to the treat v by the Sen
ate. The final action was delayed for a
i u;ng lime uy tne discussion or an
intendment offered by Senators San
iiil!y, Tainayo and Iteeio, requiring
the public to pass upon the treaty.
This was voted down, 5 to 15.
An amendment to substitute for the
committee's report was then offered
by Senators Frias, Monteagudo and
Retaiicourt. This approved and rati
fied all the amendments cf the Senate
at "Washington and recommended
that the Cuban executive take action
conducive to obtaining effective re
ciprocity as soon as possible. To this
substitute waa added the following:
"This recommendation must not be
taken as an amendment or a modifi-cati-on
of the treaty."
Senator Bustamente announced
their satisfaction at the outcome. The
chief contention of the committee
was the action of the American Con
gress. Senator Sanguilly, in a long and
impassioned speech against the rati
fication of the treaty, impressively
pictured the gradual absorption of
Cuba by the United State, in which
he said the present action was one
step. He argued that it was disgrace
ful for Cuba to be a party to such a
scheme. Senator Bustamente, in a
brief and able final speech, cited
various incidents of history to show
that neither weak or wicked nations
n ake commercial treaties, and pre
dicted with certainty the results in
this case. The vote was taken separ
ately in each section of the substi
tute report. The vote on the uncon
ditional ratification of the treaty was
12 to 9; on the recommendation to
the. executive it was 11 to 9.
The present session of the Senate
then adjourned. The ratification will
be exchanged by cable.
St. Petersburg, By Cable. A great
strike riot, accompanied by much
bloodshed has occurred at the town
of Slatousk. in the government of
Oodfa. Twenty-eight persons were
killed and 50 others were wounded.
Tiie strike started in the State Iron
Works, where 500 men walked out,
demanding the release of three of
their comrades who had been ar
rested. The governor of the province,
who went to inquire into the affair,
was mobbed as he was entering the
house of the manager of the works.
The rioters stormed the house and
smashed in the doors and windows.
The mayor, with a force of gendar
mes and a detachment of troop3. then
arrived on the scene and ordered the
rioters to disperse. The latter, how
ever, stood their ground and the
mayor was wounded by a revolver
shot. The gendarmes and troops im
mediately replied with firing volleys
at the mob and killed or wounded 78

it was said that prices were largely

AN IRISH LAND BILL
A Musere Introduced That Will It
of Vast Benefit
P 10 POSES A LAEGE MONEY GRAM.
The Irish Secretary Introduces the
Government Land Bill Into PrilUh
House of Commons.
London. Uy Cable Th Irish S ro
tary. Mr. Wyndham. introdu..-d the
government'-s long-antic! pat -d IrUh
land bill in the House of Commons
Wednesday afternoon. It proposes a
grant of JGO.OOO.GOO for the puriosa
of the bill. Tenants ar to pay 3 pr
cent, interest on loans from tb gov
ernment. Mr. WynJham taij he
thought the scheme would not involve
over $300,000,000. but that $730.00) ('0
could be safely advanced on Irish lan I.
Advances to tenants are limited to $2.-
500 in the congested districts and $5.-
000 elsewhere. The bill also provides i
that untenanted farms and grazing
land shall be sold to neighboring ten
ants and that thiee commissioners to
be known as estate commissioners thall
supervise the sales. The name of tte
three commissiontrs are Michael Fin
aune, secretary to the government's
Bengal general and statistical depart
ment; Frederick S. French, one of the
Irish land commissioners, and William
F. Bailey, one of the assistant-commis
sioners on the Irish land commission.
They will be under the general control
of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.
They will become effective November
The keen interest felt in this new
legislation, which it is hoped will pro
mote peace and contentment in Ire
land, was shown by the crowded House.
The peers gallery and the distinguish
ed strangers' gallery were filled and
there has been no such gathering of
members of Parliament since the open
ing of the session. In the diplomatic
gallery sat United States Secretary
Henry White, an interested spectator,
while almost every Irish peer listened
to Mr. WTyndham's exposition of the
bill. From an early hour this morning,
the stone benches from the Honse of
Commons entrance to the doors of the
lobby, were packed with impatient
irisnmen, among whom were many
presidents. Most of there went away
without even seeing the inside of the
legislative chamber, the galleries of
which were crowded as has not been
the case for many a day. Michael
Davitt, the "father" of the Land
League, celebrated his 57th birthday by
re-entering the House for the first time
since he ceased to be a member, in or
der to hear the Chief Secretary for Ire
land unfold his plans.
For the most, part the Liberal mem
bers sat glum, the applause coming
from the Irish benches. A hush of ex
pectation fell on the assembly as Joha
Redmond, the Irish leader, rose to
speak. If he refused to countenance
the bill, its death and perhaps even
the government'3 downfall, was de
creed. When the galleries of the House
found him sympathetic and non-committal,
a feeling of relief pervaded all
sides. What Sir Henry Campbell
Banncrman, the Liberal leader, and the
others said had little effect. T. W.
Russell, who with others criticised the
details and various omissions In Mr.
Wyandham's plan, wound up with a
guttural and reluctant admission that
"it is a great bill."
The passage of the first reading of
the bill was followed by the rush td
the lobby, where ensued scenes that
might well make the ghost of farnell
turn in his grave. The tall form of
Lord Dudley, Lord Lieutenant of Ire
land, could be seen amidst a crowd of
Nationalists, who scarcely a year ago
would rather have suffered anything
than discussed with the official head of
the Irish party any question. Beside
Lord Dudley stood the grizzled little
Sir Anthony McDonnell, the First Na
tional Assistant Irish Secretary.
Mr. Wyandham, who was heartily
cheered when he arose to speak in the
House, announced at the outset that
the government thought cash aid was
necessary for the fulfillment of the pro
posed scheme, but it attached greater
importance to the credit operation
than to the cash operation. He then
unfolded the scheme, which provides
for advances of money for the pur
chase of land by the tenants. The ad
vances will be in the shape of cash and
not of stock, but in order to enable
the cash to be raised a new stock is to
be floated. It will be called "guaran
teed" 2 per cent, stock and will be
redeemable for 30 years. Mr. Wynd
ham doubted if $300,000,000 of the stock
would be needed. It will be issued at
the rate of $25,000,000 yearly for the
first three years and afterwards possi
bly in larger sums. In addition to this
the government proposed a free grant
of $60,000,000 to be saised by additions
to the stock, the interest and sinking
fund which will be borne by the
Treasury, and the maximum annual
charge of which will not exceed $1,
950,000. Against this charge on the
British Treasury the Irish government
proposes rortnwitn to commence re-
