THE M'KEKSPORT RIOTERS
McKeespout, Pa., June 7. Early
this morning the tube works strikers,
refreshed by a good night's rest, began
to assemble in groups in thi streets de
spite the numerous proclamations of
Sheriff Richards and the mayor of the
city. The largest gatherings were
about the works and depots, the stri
kers still fearing that the firm would
attempt to operate the plant, or that
new mju cr d.puttes would be brought
Tbe leidoni say there will be no fur
thur trouble aulesa this is done. A
co'icosiiou was made by them today in
allowiug a for OS of men to untor tbe
tube works to tike care of the artificial
gas furnaces, which were In dangor of
d structiou tor laek of attention.
Great excitement was caused about
midnight by tbe booming of a cannon
on the opposite side of the river. The
people ruhed out of their bouses to
the river front, believing that deputies
or new workmen had arrived. No
cause for firing the cannon could be
leprned, and tbe men returned to thoir
koine. This wus tbe only exciting
event of the night.
TheDuquesne Tube company, whose
pjant was raided yesterday by the Mc
Keesport strikers, has decided to sue
tend operations until tbe trouble at
Me Keesport is settled, the orders on
hand not being sufficient to justify the
risk of running the works.

were reported lost.
The Bear is a three-masted steam
vessel, of not particularly graceful
lines. Her services in rescuing Lieu

Vancouver, B. C, June 7 The
Ftnzor river is still rising at West

hours ended this morning the flood
gained one inch. Tne worst hns un

ports from up river points say the river
is steadily recoiling.
A correspondent who returned this
morning from a trip to Fort Huuoy on
a rescue steamer, reports a torrihlu
state of affairs on the upper purt of tbe
river. Herds of half starved cattle
tied on rafts, with no one to
guide the journey of the in
secure raft, were seen. Just above
Ham y some desperate ranger had sent
all his live stock adrift at the
mercy of the tide. Two houses tied to
swaying rafts were Been. Families
were at the doors with excited faces
and apparently safe. A red hundlrnr.
chief was furiously waved a short die
tunee off, and the steamer hands were
soon lifting out of tbe boat an exhaust
ed furmer and his wife. The woman
had fainted for waut of food.
It is now claimed by many that the
destruction of farms in the Frnzsr Val
