MILITARY CALLED OUT. CONFLICT WITH THE STKIKBKS. PARIS, April 12. Riotous scenes occurred yesterday at Mem, Prance, where 12,000 button-mak-ers are on strike, owing to their demand for uniform wages not having been conceded.

Last evening 600 of the strikers attacked and wrecked two of the factories, and stormed one of the manufacturer's dwelling-houses. The owner and his wife, with their servants, were compelled to flee from the mob in their night attire, making their escape by way of a back door.

Next morning 200 dragoons had a serious conflict with the strikers, several of the troops being wounded. A body of cavalry, numbering 1000, has now been sent to Meru.
