LIVERPOOL RIOT HAS TAKEN SERIOUS TURN Light Plant Furnished Little Power and Many Public Places Shut Down, LIVERPOOL, Aug. riots have been begun here. A mob of men and women today stormed the bakeries and grocer- ies carrying away food. Money and other valuable articles were untouched. Serious rioting is in progress today.. Women, mad- dened by thought of their starv- ing babies, are leading many of the riots and cared little for the bayonets of the soldiers. The situ- ation took another serious turn today the scavengers struck. The garbage is not be- ing removed and an epidemic is threatened. Liverpool homes business house and theatres which depend on electricity for illuminating purposes were cast in- to darkness last night. Meanwhile the flrSt conflicts in the greatest labor war the world has known were tak- inf-pteefr-throughout the United King- dom. Great bodies of troops are moving across the country in every direction. All efforts to effect a settlement of the gigantic strike have failed, and tba island has been converted into a vast military camp. Until 8 o'clock Thursday night the lighting company maintained only a limited supply of current for illumin- ating purposes, but at that time the street car service was suspended and additional power was diverted to lighting the streets and hotels. The latter previously had been deprived of all electric lights. It was necessary to close theatres, because of-their use-of electric cur- rent; and use it for street lighting, Jt being feared that if the streets were in darkness, hooligans again might give serious trouble.

The inducement to have Diegle confess is said to have been made through the attorney general's office, and the promise of a fine and short jail sentence is held out for him whereas a term in the penitentiary confronts him if he fails to accept of After Lively Over Suffrage Question, to Admit Women.

I The storm bioke early and involved HERE'S INSIDE STORY OF KERN'S AMENDMENT STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU Munsey Building WASHINGTON. Aug. is an interesting inside story as to the genesis of Senator Kern's famous "bread and meat" amendment to the farmer's free list bill. It is one of the most unusual stories in congressional story of an amendment whose legislative parent never believed in it, who was anxious to secure its rejection from the time of its adoption and who unquest- ionably feels chagrined because the conferees refused to throw it out of the bill in conference. Piobably there never has been a case exactly parallel to this. And yet. even though Senator Kern's championship of this amendment seems to give the horse lauch to his laugh to fervid opposition to "forty-cent bacon" in the last cam- paign he "has no apoligies to offer for presenting it to the consideration of tae senate of the United States, which grabbed like a bass going after a mir'-ow.' He thinks that he did right and under the same given set of cir- cumstances he would do it again. If there was any lingering doubt in his own -mind 6s to whether or not I be had made a mistake, that doubt has been solved in the relative by his fnend, William Jennings Bryan, who has applauded Mr. Kern's act Kern thinks Mr. Bryan comes to being exactly j right on all public questions than any i other man flight might not be attempted, owing to the wind. In any event Atwood planned to rest considerably, possibly giving an exhibition flight at the Club, and not starting east befoie 4 p. m. After leaving San dusky Thursday afternoon. Atwood had an'uneventful trip until he approached Cleveland, i.nd then untoward incidents were fre- quent. To begin with, he did not lo- cate his landing place, mistaking EOgenater Park for Eiiclid Beachi and alighting theie at Discover- ing that he had made a mistake, he again sailed into the air and went onr to Euclid Beach. Here, in landing, dropped so close to the beach as he sailed over the heads of people some- thing of a panic resulted in the people fearing that they wonld be struck. There was a wild scramble for safety and scores fell flat. One big fat man tried to crawl under an over- turned rowboat. No one was feurt, however. No sooner had Atwood landed than a waiting constable seized his ma- chine. This was on a -claim of Standard Oil Co.. of New York, for for gasoline furnished. Arrange-" ments were quickly made to guarantee the payment of the bill and the ma- chine was released. Meantime Atwood was having troubles with the crowd which pressed about him. Women and girls tried to kiss him and it required the of policemen to rescue him. Atwood and his manager, Leo Ste- vens, were guests at the Country Club night and today. While he'seem- unconcerned, he could not conceal oiue nervousness, the result of -con- tinued flying. The uncertainty of landing places seems to have bothered! him most, his experiences having beea unfoitunate in Toledo, Sandusky and Cleveland. Atwood said: "Onb one tiling happened to nter the last part 01 my trip from San- dusky here, and that really didnt mar the trip, it only delayed me a while. That was the mistake I in alighting at Edgewater Park. Tha machine acted splendidly all the way through and I expect it will still b9 in good shape when I reach. New York.
