Barcelona, Feb. 20. The strikers to

A mob stormed the arsenal at Saba

The battle ship Pelayo has been or
dered to Barcelona.
A pitched battle occurred In the out
skirts of the city between the strikers
and the military escort attached to
several wagons that were bringing in
provisions. Tho contents of the wagons
were dragged out, and barricades were
built across the road. The rails have
been torn up to prevent trains from
entering the city.
The strike movement has begun to
spread seriously. At Castelloli de I.a
Plana, taking advantage of the night
and of the absence of the police, the
sti liters set fire to two factories with
the aid of petroleum. The factories
were burned. At a workmen's meeting
held at Castellon do la Plana, a general
strike was voted.
At Sarngossa most of tho factories
have already closed on the demands ot
the workmen, and the strikers are
bringing pressure to bear to compel the
factories still remaining open to close
their doors, The captain-general of
Saragossa has wired for reinforcements.
Martial law, it Is learned late to
night, lias been proclaimed at Manresa
(about 30 miles northwest of Barcelona)
nnd at Saragossa. At the latter place
the troops have occupied a strategic,
position In order to check tho distur
bance. Ofllciul telegrams received here de
scribe a slight improvement In the sit
uation at Barcelona, and ofllcials to
night seem more hopeful.
Owing to the strict censoishln over
news from Barcelona, it Is difficult to
ascertain the real state of affairs there.
It is quite certain, however, that all
the efforts of tho authorities to per
suade the labor leaders Into a concili
atory attitude have so far failed, and
the extension of the strike movement
is more likely than its restriction.
In addition to the labor movement,
the ever present Catalan home rule
agitation Is likely to prove a serious
factor in the situation. One hopeful
sign Is the fact that almost alone
among tho mlnisteis and the govern
ing authorities, General Weyler is In
sympathy with the Catalonian de
mands, and is inclined to study their
grievances. lie has held military
commands In Catalonia, speaks the
Catalan language and thoroughly un
derstands that situation.
The government declines to publish
the casualties in tho riots of Tuesday
and Wednesday. It is inferred from
private information received here that
forty persons weie killed and two hun
dred wounded during tho encounters of
those days, nnd that five hundred ar
rests have been made. All persons who
were slightly wounded were concealed
by their friends in order to avoid
"Women took a promjnent share In
the riots, and were more violent than
tho men. Among tho incidents related
of the disorders at Barcelona is tho
case of a polleenmn who fell a victim
to his resemblance to an inspector
named Ties-ols, who Is much hated by
the anarchists. Tho polleeninn mistak
en for the inspector was assassinated.

committee were in private conference
for three hours this afternoon on the
subject ot Cuban reciprocity, and al
though the conference went over with
out action until tomorrow, tho mem
bers found themselves for the first time
In possession of a proposition com
manding considerable strength and un
derstood to represent the attitude of
tho administration. This proposition
wns brought forward wy Representa
tive Long, of Kansas, and authorized
the president, when Cuba was pre
pared to grant forty per cent, reduc
tion on duties on United States exports
to the Island, to grant to Cuba a simi
lar reduction of forty per cent, on nil
the products of the Island coming to
the United States. This was a straight
reciprocity proposition, each side grant
ing forty per cent, reduction without
the complications appearing in some of
the other propositions, us to the method
of payment, etc.
Mr. Long's proposition drew out ex
tended discussion, in which Air. Payne,
the chairman, and Mr. McCall indicated
a disposition to support it.
Various cither suggestions weie put
forward nnd discussed, but none took
definite form, beyond that of Mr.
Long's, It Is understood Ahut the issue
is likely to be made on tills proposi
tion, since it is believed to represent
the concessions the administration be
lieves should be granted on each side.

".s to the results of the meeting, I

fact that thirty out of thirty-six mem

closer to an understanding. Among
those present, the greatest enthusiasm
prevailed and all seemed imbued with
the same purpose.
"As to permanent results'.' "Well, I
am not able to say anything as to that.
All I can do is to hope. The repeatedly
futile efforts to bring labor and capi
tal to an understanding make one
doubt any new plan. Individually,
hovevor,( I have every confidence in
the efforts of the National Civic Fed

should discourage me."
The sub-committee authorized by the

STORM AT PITTSBURG.
Threatened Flood Causes Consterna
tion Along the River Banks.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Pittsburg, Fob. 20. A sleet storm to
night with rapidly moderating weather
and two clays of rain predicted promises
to bring about what river men and cit
izens generally have feared for some
time. Tho obstructions of ice In the
river are of the most serious character
and liable to do almost incalculable
damage to river tralllc between this
point and Wheeling, and should the
moderate weather and rains bring
down the Ice the heavy floes from up
river points, the flood which will result
Is likely to be n. record breaking one.
Tho coal companies are taking every
precaution for the protection of their
property along the rivers, and all resi
dents in the lowlands and valleys are
making ready for the expected flood.
The river from Wheeling to Park
ersburg is gorged almost solid and the
rlvermen fear this almost as much as
they do the gorge In the Allegheny, for
the rrnson that many, boats are frozen
to tho bank at various places and these
have no way to protect themselves or
their tows from the Ice when It breaks.
It is feared that In addition to losing
their tows, many of the boats them
selves will bo lost on account of heavy

Washington, Feb. 20. With the ex
ception of a few minutes given to rout
ine! business, the senate, today devoted
Its entire session to the Philippine
question. Jlr. Patterson, of Colorado,
one of tiio minority members of the
Philippine committee, delivered his
first extended speech In the senate and
was given a most attentive nnd care
ful hearing. lie discussed principally
the sedition laws enacted by tho Phil
ippine commission, vigorously attack
ing the authority of tho commission to
enact and enforce such laws. lie
maintained that concress alone hnd
the power to put In force enactments
of that character. He contoured infor
mation furnished by the executive de
partments of the government with soma
of the statements of Governor Taft, lit
his testimony before the Philippine
committee, with respect to the capa
bilities of the Philippine people, and
declared, with some heat, his belief
that Governor Taft misrepresented the
true situation in the islands for mo
lives unknown. He asserted that if tho
G.000,000 of Christians in tho Philippines
Were Protestant Christians, the cruel
ties practiced on them by (be Ameri
can authorities would have to ston, as
no member of congress would be able
to withstand the wrath of the Metho
dists, Baptists and Presbyterians.
Jlr. Nelson, of Minnesota, presented a
legal and con'slitutioual argument In
support of tills government's action in
the Philippine archipelago and sharply
criticised Jlr. Patterson for Inlectlng
Into the controversy the eiuestiou of
Mr. JlcCumber, of North Dakota,
urged that congress should not bind
tile future now by a declaration of tt
definite policy reg.uu.ng the Philip
pines, as It was desballe that all pos
sible information should be In hand
before n permanent policy was deter
He said the commercial advantages
of the Philippine islands should bo
considered, but they were overshad
owed by three great duties duty to
the people of the Philippines, to the
people of the woild and to the ucotilo
of the United States. When then)
duties hnd been performed, and when
all had been done for the bettctment
ot the Philippines, that could be dono
by the United Rtntes, then it would bu
lime to determine what should be tho
final disposition of the islands so fur
ns this country was concerned.
Indian's Condition Considered.
The houso spent tho day working
on tho Indian appropriation bill, Forty-two
of the sixty-two pages worn
disposed of. Several umeutlmcut.s
were adopted, but none of much im
portance. The appropriation for pre
liminary work on the reservoir for the
tllln river vulley wont out on a point
of order, Jlr, Smith, of Arizona, of
fered nn amendment to strike out lho
appropriation for tho Carlisle school
and it became tho text fcfr a. general
onslaught on the practice of educating
Indians In Eastern schools. His
amendment was defeated, .lust be
fore tho close of the session. Jlr.
Fitzgerald, of New York, made an at
tack on tlto superintendent of thn
school at Mount Pleasant, Mich., who,
ho said, was charged with permitting
tho debauching ot Indiun girls, Jlr.
Sherman, chairman of the Indian com
mittee, promised to make an investiga
tion at tho Indian oilicci tomorrow.
Jlr. Smith, tho delegate from Arlzonn,
in moving to strike out tho appro
priation for the Carlisle Indian school,
declared that experience showed these
schools, distant from tho Indian reser
vation, hud dono more harm than good
Tho policy was a mistaken one, In hli
opinion, Tho children wero educated
made n, show of by well-disposed peo.
pie, after which they went back to the
dirt nnd squalor in which they had
boon brought up. Ho Insisted that the
Indian should bo educated In tho en
vironment in which he must live. These
