   Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1893, Olean, New York                               I Olean Democrat VOL. XIII. OLEAN. CATTARAUGUS CO. NEW YORK. TUES DAY, JANUARY 3 1. 1893- NO 96 TEOOPS ORPEHEP OUT THE STRIKE SITUATION AT DUNKIRK BECOMING ALARMING. CONG SESSIONAL FORECAST. Intense Excitement Prevails and Trouble of the Most Serioiii Character Autic- Eutertalned that Dunkirk j May be Turned Into a Second Home- stead Two of the New Men Are Roughly Handled by the Strikers. DUNKIRK, Jan. 1 o'clock yester- day morning Sheriff Jenner of Chautau- qua county came to the conclusion that strike at the Brooks Locomotive works had become so serious as to warrant his on Brigadier General Doyle for A telegram was accordingly sent Doyle asking Mm for military and a reply was received that the Thirteenth Separate company of Jamestown had been ordered under arms and -would proceed to Dunkirk in the morning. The message also stated that additional troops would be sent here from Buffalo. There is intense excitement here and trouble of the most serious character is anticipated. A VEET SERIOUS AFFAIR. The Brooks people evidently intend to bring in a force of men sufficient to run the works, and in view of the fact that the strikers have threatened to prevent the operations the troops have been asked lor. The streets were filled with people anx- iously awaiting the expected trouble. The depots swarm with men, while crossings In the suburbs are closely watched. The call ior state troops by Sheriff Jen- ner to protect the Brooks Locomotive Works makes the strike, which began one month ago. and which the Brooks officials then called an insignificant matter, now a Very serious affair.' The strike was caused by the riveters in the boiler department refusing to work under two contractors named Kane and McNamara, alleging in human treatment on the part of the two contractors. They left the works without Btating their grievances, which were after- ward presented. The lack of boilers made it necessary to lay off the men in the other departments, and now about 600 men are out of employment in consequence. APPEALED FOB PROTECTION. The Brooks people engaged Philadel- phia men to take the strikers' places and brought them here by special train. The new mea were hurried inside the gates at the works before the strikers could inter- fere. The new men are quartered inside the works and do not go outside the gates. President Hinman received private in- formation that threats had been made against the works and against the em- ployes and the protection of Sheriff Jen- ner was asked. That official at once appealed to General Doyle at Buffalo for state troops in case they were needed. President Hinman that this was done as a precautionary measure to guard against an emergency, but hopes it may not arise. Two of the new men ventured outside the enclosure of the works and were set upon and severely handled. The call for troops has caused much ex- citement and the people fear that Dun- kirk may be turned into a second Home- stead. At an early hour this morning it was stated by the deputy sheriff that Sheriff Jenner was satisfied that he could now get along without the assistance of the troops. The strikers waited on the sheriff and promised him that no act of violence would be countenanced by them and that nothing is further from their thoughts than violence. What Governor Flower Says. ALBANT, Jan. 10 o'clock last night Governor Flower said he had had no communication from General Doyle of Buffalo regarding the ordering out of the troops to Dunkirk. The governor added that General Doyle and the sheriff of Chautauqua county had all the authority necessary to call the troops in that section of the state to the scene of the strike if necessity demands such action. Adjutant General Porter is in New York, but will be here today. Assistant Adjutant Gen- eral Phisterer has not yet learned officially of the ordering out of the troops. Eight Sew Cases of Typhus.

IiAKEWOOD, Jan. an interview yesterday with a reporter Mr. Cleveland said: "The date is now at hand when I must have more time to myself than I have had since the election. Thus far the most of my time has been devoted to in- terviews which have been by no means unpleasant nor unprofitable, but other things are now pressing upon me which require my uninterrupted consideration. "I wish, therefore, you would say for me through the press that I shall be at my office in New York every day with per- haps one exception during the week com- mencing with Jan. 30, and that after Feb. 41 shall remain at Lakewood, where I hope to be undisturbed in the work which will imperatively demand my attention. I also especially desire it to oe understood that from now until March 4 letters should be addressed to me at the Mills building, New York." ________ Cabinet Speculation. LAKEWOOD, N. J., Jan. 30. It was learned yesterday that thus far Mr. Cleve- land had filled only two positions in his cabinet with any certainty; they were Mr. Carlisle for the treasury and Mr. Lament for the navy. From one who is in very close touch with Mr Cleveland it was learned that the president-elect would in all probability select his former law partner, Wilson S. Bissell of Buffalo, for the attorney generalship. Among others who it is said are being considered for cabinet positions by Mr. Cleveland are Governor Gray of Indiana, Senator Morgan of Alabama, Governor Russell of Massachusetts, Hoke Smith of Georgia, Patrick Collins of Massachusetts and Don M.

Arnold, Charles Smith and Charles Wer ner, three convicts in Sing Sing prison had a desperate fight in the mess room. The three men were waiters. Just before the convicts entered for dinner Smith told Werner to put bread on the tables for the prisoners. AVerner refused, and when the dispute was referred to Keeper Rogers he told Werner to do the work. Smith then taunted Werner by saying: "You wil[ have to do it after all." Werner became infuriated and began slashing Smith with a bread knife. The knife stiuck Smith on the wrist, nearly severing it. Arnold jumped to Smith's as- sistance a id was also cut on the shoulder, head and face. When Werner saw what he had done he ran out of the building in Principal Keeper Counanghton's office and surrendered himself. He was placed in a dark cell and the other men were taken to the hospital. The Mohican Sails for Honolulu. SAX FEASCISCO, Jan. United States flagship Mohican, Admiral Sker- ritt, sailed yesterday for Honolulu. The Ranger is expected to leave at any mo- ment and the Adams will leave tomorrow.

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. the steamer City of Pekin changed to alarm among: the friends of the gers. The steamer was due from Hong Kong and Yokohama last Tuesday. It is suggested as one reason for her delay that she may have been met by a vessel from Honolulu and asked to stop there to aid Boston in maintaining order, but this theory is not regarded as very probable.

EVIDENCES OF DEEP AND SINCERE GRIEF SHOWN BY ALL CLASSES. rhe Services Simple and Unostentatious, In Accordance with the Expressed De- sire of the Great Statesman The Re- mains Laid to Rest In Oak Hill Cem- etery Where His Son aud Daughter Sleep. WASHINGTON, Jan. today's sad event one of the most striking figures in Ihe history of our country becomes a memory. On every hand are seen evi- dences of the deep gloom which has sefc- bled on the country, and here in particu- lar, where the dead statesman was a fa- miliar figure to all. the deep grief of the community is strikingly apparent. The streets along which the cortege moved were filled with an orderly mass of men, women and children, who stood in the chilly air with uncovered heads as the body was slowly born by. SIMPLE AND UNOSTENTATIOUS. In accordance with the expressed desire of Mr. Elaine, the funeral was unostenta- tious and of the most simple character. Only the members of the family and most intimate friends were present at the ser- vices at the Blaine residence, which were very simple. In a few well-chosen words Rev. Teunis S. Hamlin, D. D., paid a graceful tribute to the memory of the deceased, and offered prayer. The body reposed in a casket very similar to the one in which the re- mains of Mrs. Harrison were conveyed to their last resting place. Plain and simple in appearance, and devoid of any show or ostentation. It was constructed of red cedar and was covered with black cloth, suxrouneed on the outside with extension silver bar handles, and on the inside the casket was lined with full tufted satin. The solid silver plate on the top contained the following inscription: JAMES GILLESPIE BLAI2JE, BORN JAJOJARY 31, 1830. DIED JANUARY 2T, 1893. The face of the dead ex-secretary ap- peared natural, although the marks of patient suffering were stamped on the thin arid attenuated features. Immedi- ately after the services at the house were concluded the body was borne to the Church of the Covenant, rhe honorary pallbearers being: "Senators W. P. Frye and Eugene Hale of Maine and John T. Morgan of Alabama, Representatives Thomas B. Reed and C.. A. Boutelle of Maine, Robert R. Hitt of Illinois and Henry H. Bingham of Penn- sylvania, General Thomas Ewing of Ohio, John Hay of Washington, Joseph H. Manley of Maine, Almet F. Jenks of Brooklyn and P. V. F. Fly of Boston. HEADS UNCOVERED AND VOICES STILLED. The in the vicinity of the church were lit packed with a struggling mass of humanity. The scene as the cas- ket was borne into the church was of a most impressive character. With heads uncovered and voices stilled the vast crowd paid their sileat tribute to the dead. The floral decorations at the church were under the charge of George H. Brown, public gardener. There was. palms and ferns from the agricultural department and botanical gardens i.nd cut flowers from the propagating gardens in the de- partment of the engineer in charge of public buildings and grounds of the Dis- trict of Columbia. The floral tributes were magnificent in the extreme. Many of them being sent from a distance. The family, pall-bearers, President Har- rison and cabiuet, Vice President Morton, Governor Cleaves of Maine and the more intimate friends of the deceased occupied seats in the center of the church. The diplomatic corps and the judges of the supreme court were seated on the right of the pulpit, and senators and representa- tives on the left. Personal friends to the number lof sixty- five were present from various parts of the country. Mrs. Garfield was present and others from cities as widely separated as Portland, Me., and Omaha. The state of M.'ine had a delegation of fourteen, the Union League club of New York were represented by twenty-five members, as was aKo the Union League club of Phil- adelphia, who a deli of twenty. Altogether 10'> or more of the representa- tives were present. The services here, as at the home, which consisted of the reading of the Presbyte- rian burial ritual and prayer by Dr. Ham- lin, were br.ef and srnple. No one wai admitted who had not received an invita- tion. Tbe family re.zrettt-d that this bad to be so. tb'-y appreciated ihe desire ind the motives; of the penp'e who wanted to pay a tribute of re.-peci by their ence to one wlio-e lift; has been so closely id-ntifie'ii with history of the country. But the lirnit-ed seating capacity of the Dhurch ai'rt the larjre nnmber of delera- tjon'- and us to be provided for left no rot m fn: the urTi> rnl public, who nn- fwun.m-lv cnnld not accommodated. From Church the funeral procession proceeded tn Oak Hill cemetery, where the la-4 that the career of one of America's greatest were performed.

FAYOK ANNEXATION Deroulcde and Fichcm Fight Dael In Which Both Are Injured. PARIS, Jan, 31. Deputies Deroulede and Pichon fought duel with swordM yesterday. The duel was the result of an insult offered by Deroulede to Pichon in the chamber of deputies on Saturday when Deroulede called out to Pichon: "You are M. Herz's sleeping partner." Afterward in the lobby Deroulede re- peated the words. A challenge was the result. The two men fought with consid- erable vindictiveness, Pichon, who is a co- laborator with M. Clemenceau on La Jus- tice, being evidently anxious to injure Deroulede. The latter succeeded in wounding Pich- on seriously in the ribs while Deroulede received a scratch from Pichon's sword in the face. The seconds then declared hon- or satisfied and Pichon's wound received immediate attention. Deroulede was warmly congratulated by his friends. Their Efforts Successful, BUDAPEST, Jan. 31. The efforts of Prussian socialists to foment trouble in the governmeut small arms factory in this city have culminated in the strike of men. The men first made a demand upon Colonel Kuehn, the manager, for an increase of wages, which he refused to consider. They were already better paid, j he said, than men doing similar work in private concerns. Some of tiiem had earned regularly or a Archbishop Kenrick Sick. ST. Louis, Jau. transpired yes- terday that Archbishop Kenrick has been quite sick with chills and fever since Fri- day, and there seems to have been some apprehension that the attack might prove fatal, but the latest advices from his phy- sician and fro-n his confessor, Father Rankin, are to the effect that his grace is much better and that there is now no dan- ger of serious results.

THE SENTIMENT RAPIDLY EXTEND- JNG THAT WAY. Several of the Cabinet JExpreM Being In Faror of Ac- cepting: the an Inter- view with the Hawaiian Minister He Queen Will Not Up Without a Struggle, "WASHINGTON, Jan. are some important developments in the Hawaiian situation. First it is pretty clearly indi cated that the administration is not in any way lukewarm in the matter, as was at first supposed. Second, the action of the commander of the Boston, against which Great Britain is about to file or has filed a formal protest, has received the official approval of the president and his cabinet. The sentiment in favor of annexing is rapidly extending. Several members of the cabinet have expressed themselves as being in favor of accepting the proposi- tion, but as the action necessary to ac- complish annexation must come as well from the legislative as executive branch of ths. government, these declarations do not in themselves amount to more than the expression of opinion of private citi- zens. The matter will doubtless be con- sidered at the cabinet meeting today, but of course nothing will be decided upon then except probably to arrange for the reception of the Hawaiian annexation commissioners upon their arrival in this city next Friday. It has been reported that President Har- rison is in favor of the annexation of Hawaii. T here is in support of this state- ment the president's well known policy of Americanism, which has for its object the enlargement of the sphere of usefulness and activity of this nation. His action on the part taken in the rev- olution by the United States officials and forces may also be regarded as proof of the correctness of the report. Although the course pursued by Minister Stevens in ordering the Boston's marines on shore was without explicit instructions from his government, his action has been fully ap- proved by the president. In an interview upon the Hawaiian sit- uation Dr. Mott Smith said he thought a dual protectorate by the "United States and Great Britain over the islands would be the-natural outcome. "There will be a great amount of diplo- matic conferences and negotiations over the matter. One thing is certain. The queen and Hawaii are not to be wiped out without a struggle to keep going. The government has been organized for over fifty years and has always been able to take care of itself." "If the United States refused to annex the islands, do you think England would seize "I do hot think England would do any- thing in a forceful way. The Hawaiian government, however, would have to seek an alliance somewhere. If refused annex- ation it would probably have to ask the protection of America or England, and if the former turned a cold shoulder one can eee no reason why England should refuse to assume such. If the population was of a homogenous people they could sustain themselves under the new form of govern- meut. But there are so many nationali- ties that divisions, disputes and conten- tions would arise that would result in bloodshed. As to the queen, if the United States annexes the islands, she would be treated in a way worthy of her station and probably granted an allowance." In the senate there is a distinctively American feeling on the Hawaiian ques- tion which is not confined to any party. There can be no doubt that the majority of the members of the foreign relations committee look with favor upon the estab- lishment of American domination on the islands, but in just what shape is a mat- ter of detail that has not yet been con- sidered, The general sentiment among the mem- bers of the to be that the United States should annex the Hawaiian islands now that it has been invited to do so, but there are exceptions to this view. The News ConGrmed in England. LONDON, Jan. charge d'affaires of the Hawaiian legation, has received official news confirming the re- port of a revolution in the Hawaiian islands and the dethronement of Queen lalliuoaklani. The Hawaiian representa- tive visited Lord Rosebery at the foreign office to discuss the situation with him. The correspondent is reliably informed that Lord Kosebery intimated that Great Britain wouid not be likely to inter- vene at present. Lord Rosebery also hinted that England, France and Ger- many would not be likely to consent to the Annexation of the Hawaiian islands by the United The Princess Victoria Kavekiu Kaiulani Lamalilo Kalaninuiabilpaltapa, heiress to the Hawaiian throne, has also received dispatches from her aunt containing a record of recent events- Waat a German Paper Saya. BERLIN, Jan. Zei- tung. Radical, sajs of the revolution in Hawaii: "The restoration of the queen certainly -would preferable to a tripar- tite coatrol of the country. Our experi- ment with Samoa by no means recom- mends a repetition of such an experiment. Germany ha? no reason to meddle further with South affairs. America and Gre-at Britain might better be left by to Fettle their relations as they think proper." ________ HJHTC ynt RocsiTCd Anj- N FRANCISCO, Jan. dispatch Tin-placed switch was the cau-e THE STATE LEGISLATURE.

He said that Mr. Blaine was not only the idol of his party, but the admired of all the people of the union. He was one of the- greatest men of the time. He would take- a prominent place in history, to the mak- ing of which he had contributed so much. Mr. Malby seconded the resolution. Mr. Blaine, he said, was the greatest states- man of modern times. He left behind him a monument that would stand while time endures and the gratitude of a people lasts. He was the greatest commoner this country ever knew. The resolution was unanimously adopt- ed by a rising vote and the house ad- journed. ________ Fennsylranla'g tawmnkera.
