New Oi leans, Oct. 19.—The recent

withdrawn the ban and many more
have modified restrictions to the de

Two Men are 8hot by a Contractor
at the Brickmatont’ Union.
Tampa, Oct. 17.—Two men were
shot, one fatally, in a fight that oc
curred at a meeting of the local
brlckmason’s union tonight.
The trouble resulted from the im
portation by McGucken Brothers,
contractors, of negro brlckmasons
from Jacksonville several weeks ago
to take the places of whites who
were on a strike.
The negroes are union men, draw
ing the same pay as the whites, and
have been working regularly, while
the white strikers have been giving
them all the trouble possible.
Tonight Tom McGucken, one of
the contracting firm, was in confer
ence with the union, and hot words
led to a general melee In which Mc
Gucken used his pistol, shooting
Charlie Potter through the head and
John Pollard In the breast.
Potter will die. McGucken is In
Jail. Ho claims self defense.
