An Angry Mob of Allen Strikers !)-
troys Prop-irty and Peace.
McKeespokt, Pa,, Juno 0. An
anu'rv mob of 2,000 foreigners, natiou-
1 tube worm striu -rs, returned ti) Mc
Keesport just nfter noon, having iu
their morning rai 1 destroyed two of
tho largest coal tipples on the river.
Ide raiders hrst Halted at David
Moore's tipple at Point View. The
structure was soou razed to the
ground. The rioters theu tore down tho
tipple owned by John P. Mclutyre.
i no ud nrst tore down the platform
at the railroad si linsr, but was stoned
on tho hill by Mr. Cony, superintend
ent of the company, who had a re
volver. A half dozjn mou rushed upon
turn una quickly disarmed luui. Hi
lenied that any men wero at work, but
the infuriated foreigners would not
listen to him und a committee was ap
pointed to inspect the miue. They re
turned shortly uft?rward with twenty
fiv' men.
Mclntyre arrived and ordered the
nun oil the place. The mob seeing a
revolver in bit band shouted: "Tench
him a lesson." This was followed bv
an attack on the tipple, the men using
picks and axes aud in less than fifteen
minutes tbe structure was iu ruins.
During the riutiug s.-veral men wero
trampled upon and u Pittsburg news
paper man wns seriously injured. Up
ou returuiug to tae city the mob
took possession of tho streets iu
ttie vicinity of th lube works, shout
ing' enrsiug und creating the greatest
excitement. Finally the marchers dis
appeared. Trouble and bloodshed is
feared before the day is out, as there
are no doputies here to contend the
rioters. The situation is much the
same as prevailed at Homestead before
the big battle. The men ure in com
plete possession of the town.
The National Tube works tonight is
surrounded by u crowd of at least 5 000
strikers and sympathizers. The men
are nervous and anxious, but in no way
desperate. No trouble is looked for
unless an attempt is male to start the
works. All trains are closely watched
by the strikers for d-puttes, but as yet
no denudes liHve arrived ou the scene.
At 7 o'clock tonight Mayor Andre,
City Solicitor Rankin, ex-Mayor Till
brook aud Councilman A B O'Neil,
of this city, and Siieriff Jatn-s Rich
ards aud Deputy Sheriff Arch Macroll,
of Ailegheuy county, discussed tho
situation iu the office of City Solicitor
Rankin, After too meeting " was over
Mayor Andre told a reporter tbnt he
anticipated no ttouliu tor tho present
at least.
Only four citiz -iis respoudod to the
mayor's proclamation to act ns dopu
ties. As the majority of the people of
this city are wuge earners, it is readily
seen with Whom they sympathizt. Tho
Tube works officials had intended to
try and start up in tbe mornlug, bni
as tho strikers aro in full control of the
large plant there is not much likelihood
of an attempt being imide to start tbe
works until some plan of protection is
arranged for men willing to work.
CBIPPIiI ObBBX, Col., Jane 0 The
deputies have taken up a fortified po
sition at the Summit mill just below
Gillette and have placed their cannon
in position. The strikers have all re
treated to Bull Hill and ure fortified
and have also boeu largely reinforced.
A demand on them to surrender was
r-fused, although thoy stated tbev
would luy down their arms to the
militia. The deputies will remain
where thsy are nil nignt and attack iu
tbe morning.

Columbus, O., Juno 0 When ex

throughout wue harmonious and en
thusiastic. The platform declares that tbo "pec
pie of Ohio delight to honor their able,
distinguished and patriotic public ser
vant, the Hon. William McKiuley,"
and the convention '"most heartily in
dorses his present clean, honorable,
able and etlicient administration, and
we assure bun of our highest couii lonco
and estuem."
It commends the general assembly
and the conrseof "our illustrious senu
tor, Johu Sherman."
It declares the McKiuley act to be
"tho ablest expression of the patriotic
principle of protection yot enacted,"
aud denounces "the unjust and inequit
able tariff meusuro kuown as the Wil
son bill, und tbe senate substitutes
therefor and amendments proposed
thereto, as unpatriotic, favorable to
trusts, and sectional."
Tho currency plank is as follows:
Wo favor bimetallism. Silver as well as
gold is one of the groat products of the
United States. Its coinage and uso as a
circulating medium f-hould bo steadily
maintained and consequently encouraged
by tho national goverutuontj and we ad
vocate such a policy as will, by discrimi
nating legislation, or otherwise, most
speedily restore to silver its rightful place
as a money motnl.
Wo denounce tho avowed purpose of the
Democratic leaders to restoro the era of
"wild-cat" nnd "red dog" money by ro
pooling the prohibitory 10 per cent, tax on
state bank issue?. All money of whutover
kind should be under national und not
