I ' '
Chicago, Mayr 10. Several car loads
of femininity have reached this city the
past few days, from various portions of
the continent. They are not here to
v . nominate a president, but to attend the
. biennial meeting of the general federa
tion of Woinans' clubs, which is to meet
tomorrow for a three days' session.
This federation of Woinans' clubs, is a
club of clubs, being composed entirely
of social and literary clubs for women.
There were at first about 60 clubs in the
federation, but there are now nearly
thrice that number. Under the leader
ship of Mrs. Charlotte Emerson Brown
of Orange, N. J., the president of the
federation, the work is assuming a char
acter and proportions of which even its
most enthusiastic promoters did not
dream. Massachusetts has been from
the first the banner state in the fedora-
tlon in respect to the number and char
acter of its clubs, though Ohio is a very
close second. Among those here are,
Mrs. Kate Tannatt Woods, Mrs. Julia
Ward Howe, Mrs. Edna Dean Cheney,
Mrs. Thomas Mack and many others;
Some of these represent several clubs,
for instance : Mrs. Woods is the presi
dent of the Unique Thought and Work
club of Salem, Mass., besides holding
membership in the New. England
Womans' club, the Womens' Press asso
ciation, the Charity club, the Belief
corps, the Wintergreen club, the Na
tional Press association, the Unity Art
club- and others.. The New England
Womens' Press association, an organi
sation which ranks among the first of
Boston's clubs, is represented by Miss
-Alice Stone Blackwell,' and Mrs. Eliza
E. Whiting of the Springfield Republi--can.
Mrs. Harriet H. Robinson of Mal
den, a life long believer and worker in
; associations for women, represents the
Old and New of that city, and will be
. among the best known club women at
the convention. At 10:30 a.m., tomor
row an address of welcome is to be given
by the president of the Chicago AVoman'a
club, and the responsj will be made by
the president of the federation. After
the business routine of the day is over,
at 8 p. m., there is to be a social gather
ing at Chicago Womans' club rooms,
. Art Institute building. Address by
Miss Frances Willard, and also by Mrs.
Charles Henrotin, vice-president of the
"hoard of lady managers of the Worlds
Sent to Angel Island.
Denver, Col., May 9. The recruiting
officer at Fort Logan was surprised the
other day by the appearance of banker
C. H. Dow, and his son, Clarence L.
Dow, who married Mile. Price, the high
kicker. Mr. Dow intimated that if his
-son could pass the necessary physical
-examination he would like to enlist in
the United States army as a musician.
The recruiting officer sent Clarence with
an orderly to the post surgeon, who put
the young man through the usual course
and said he was qualified to serve Uncle
Sam. Mr. Clarence, in violation of good
military, discipline, here . offered Dr.
O'Reilly a cigar. It surprised the doc
tor, but he took it. Clarence, from that
hour, was a private soldier at $13 a
month. Mr. Dow explained that for
divers reasons he would prefer that his
son should not be stationed at Fort
Logan. It is too near the scene of his
former disgrace ; so he, the musician,
was assigned to the band of the First
United . States infantry, stationed on
Angel island, San Francisco harbor. His
instrument is the cornet, with which he
has already made quite a reputation.
Parochial School. .
New York May 9. Dr. McGlynn
lectured last evening in Cooper Union
on the school question. ; He denounced
parochial schools, and said . they had
been established by men who wanted to
see the old order of things revived, who
were out of sympathy with the progress
of the republic, who loved to see mon
archy established again, and who wanted
to make a living in that way. "In a
short time," he said, "the spirit'of free
dom will assert itself, and the liberal
. Catholic will then throw off the weight
he has been carrying, and support the
public school system." - -
Sandwich Islands Coming- In.
-. Washington,' May 9. It is said that
Representative Blount, chairman of the
bouse committee on foreign affairs, has
made - a - cautious . canvass among, the
leading memliers of the house to see
what congressional support canbeob-
tained for a scheme for the annexation
of the Hawaiian islands. . The matter
has as its origin the belief that it would
be more politic for the United States to
secure the possession of the islands than
to allow England to either seise them or
to establish a protectorate there. Dr.
Mott Smith, Hawaiian minister, when
asked about the matter, said he was not
in the confidence of those who are re
ported to be interested in the move, but
said he was not aware of any such plan.
He said further that if the United States
made Hawaii a fair proposition looking
toward annexation it would be well re
ceived. --. . '
Romantic Tragedy in Ajacclo. .
Ajaccio, May 9. A tragedy with a
strong color of romance has just been
enacted in this ancient city, the birth
place of Napoleon. For months a band
of smugglers and -bandits have preyed
upon the people of this. vicinity, but
always managed to elude thejauthorities.
Luigi Betano, the head of the band, dur
ing one of his daylight rambles met
Marietta Pagua, the pretty daughter of
a wealthy merchant. In the course 'of
time he made her acquaintance, and
made violent love to her. The girl recip
rocated his feelings and afterwards they
met at night. He soon abducted her and
imprisoned her in a cave, where she was
held for ransom. The girl's father bus
pected that she had been secreted at the
headquarters of the band, and instituted
a search. The whole gang was arrested
but the girl was not found. A peculiar
feature of the arrest was the frantic
manner in which Betano resisted the of
ficers. Some days afterward the author
ities found a cave in a dense forest.
where it proved the robbers had their
headquarters. - A further search revealed
an adjoining cave, entrance to which
was obstructed by a door. On breaking
it open, they entered a spacious chamber
filled with valuable booty, and in the
center of the apartment was unfortunate
Marietta, with her head fallen on her
knees, and her hands clasped in un-
availing prayer. On examination, it was
found that she had died of starvation.
The bandits has fastened her in their
lair, and being all placed in prison were
powerless to rescue her. - ..
The Fifteen Acre Fire.'
Detroit, Mich., May 10. On the
night of April 27th a fire started in
Chase, Lake county, this state which
consumed fully fifteen acres of the town,
and there was no insurance, except upon
the drug stock of Zeb Ross, in whose
store the fire started. He was charged
with incendiarism and arrested,' and
now in jail awaiting trial. His clerk
swore that Boss intimidated him and
said that if he, the clerk would burn the
store be could have a pot of money. He
also swore that Ross showed him how to
fire it by means of a tallow candle fuse,
and showed him the best place to put it.
The citizens threaten to hang Ross if the
law releases him. '-
A Strange' Case of Lnnaoy.
Atlanta, Ga., May 9. One of the
strangest cases of lunacy ever developed
was removed from the Atlanta jail to the
state asylum at Milledgeville today. The
case was that of Tom Wilson, a negro
preacher, who has been in jail for the
last three months, having been taken
there by order of Judge Calhoun on a
charge ol lunacy- Wilson is a very in
telligent negro. About four months ago,
Wilson's son was arrested on a charge of
burglary. Wilson signed a bond for his
son's release, and as soon as the boy was
out of jail he disappeared, and this drove
his lather insane.
Chutch and State Divorce.
Omaha, May 10. At the session of the
M. E. Conference yesterday Dr. King
offered a resolution for an amendment to
the constitution of the United States,
looking to the protection of public
schools against religious encroachments,
and to define the attitude of churches
toward the schools; he asked conference
to indorse a bill on' the subject, which
had been prepared upon the complete
divorcement of church and state. The
resolution was Adopted with applause.
. Incendiary Fire.
Haywaeds, Cal., May 10. An incen
diary fire yesterday destroyed $100,000
worth of property in this city, upon
which there was no insurance. The fire
started in the - Haywards agricultural
works adjoining the electric light plant,
completely destroying both establish
ments. r When the : hose companies
reached the scene of the conflagration
the fire was under good headway, but
they did good work in saving the build
ings near by. . .. -

Chicago, May 10. Reports are con
firmed that It is the purpose of the em
peror of Japan to personally visit . the
Chicago exhibition next year, 'the in
formation having been furnished to all
the native papers. Such a visit would
be unprecedented in the annals of this
country, and could not fail to have the
most beneficial results for Japan. The
Chicago exhibition will be the fourth at
which Japan will be represented. The
articles : exhibited : at Philadelphia
weighed 42o tons, and it is estimated by
the official dealing with this matter that
twice that amount ought to suffice for
Chicago. The applications to exhibit
become more and . more numerous, and
the number of articles manufacturers
desire to send is already more than seven
times the limit estimated. Of course it
will be impossible for all those articles
to go nnder government auspices, and
the department has limited the amount
to be sent to 1750 tons. The decision to
do this was arrived at . after a consulta
tion with local governors, and a fixed
scale of the amount to be sent from each
district will be published shortly.
A Fallen Pretender.
London, May 9. Dr. John Homfaldt,
who claimed to be a German baron, was
caught in the act of robbing a till in
Fleet street on the night of March 27th,
and was convicted and sentenced to
three weeks' imprisonment at hard labor,
He had been employed as tutor in the
family of an Englishman of wealth,' but
had lost his occupation and resorted to
theft to obtain money. It transpired at
his trial on Saturday that he was form
erly a tutor at Eastbourne, where he had
been dismissed for inducing the pupils
under him to pawn articles of - their
clothing in order to buy him drink, and
was guilty of other base misconduct. It
was also proven that he was not a baron,
though he was a man of highest educa
tion, and at one time enioved a hieh. do-
sition in cultured and intellectual circles.
His downfall was wrought by indulgence
in drink, and bv the chloral habit. He
was sentenced to a years' imprisonment
at bard labor. .

Benton, May 9. Joseph Hamilton,
who spent the . last seventeen years of
his life in chains, is dead. He had a
terrible . mania a thurst for human
blood, which nothing could appease.
He had to be kept-in irons all the time,
When 25 years ot age Hamilton acquired
the appetite by tasting blood in a fight.
He was at a sparring match when he
saw blood -flow from the nose of one of
the boxers, and went wild instantly,
Drawing a knife, he plunged it into the
heart of a bystander and drank his blood
as it flowed. He lulled another man
before he was arrested. ' '

Poland Jealous of tie Increasing Num
ber of Jews,
THE MALIGNANT HATERS OF LODZ.
A Place Where Ignorance and Supersti
tion is Above Par.
MERCILESS WAR UPON HEBREWS.
Poland at Nat With Herself and
Ignorant That she Does no Know
it Minor Mention.
New York, May 12. Details from
Vienna have been received of the attack
on the Jews by a mob of strikers at Lodz,
a town of Poland, seventy-five mile from
Warsaw. It appears that the Polish
people of Lodz have been for some time
jealous of the increasing number of Jews
in the woolen and linen mills. . Many of
these were from the interior of Bussia,
having been driven from their former
homes bv persecution, and they were
willing to work for very low wages
This was one of the causes that led to
the strike at Lodz. During Passover
week some enemies of the Jews circu
lated the report that they had stolen
and murdered a Christian child in the
course of the Passover ceremonies. ' This
report was not believed by the intelligent,
but it created great excitement among
the ignorant. When the strike began
the Jews continued at work, and this in
creased the irritation against them. For
a long time it has been customary for
the more malignant of the Jew haters in
Lodz and other towns to go about- pull
ing the beards and noses of the Jews.
Many of the Jews submitted meekly un
less the pulling was too severe, when they
retaliated, and an incident of this kind
is said to have been the immediate
cause of the riot at Lodz. One of the
strikers, meeting a Jew with an unusually
developed nose, gave It an extra twist,
which provoked the Hebrew to madness,
and he resented by making a desperate
attack on his persecutor. The latter
raised a cry that the Jews were attacking
the Christians, and then the strikers to
the number of thousands started . to
make merciless war on the Hebrews.
The latter defended themselves with the
energy of despair, but the strikers had the
best of the conflict and a number of the
Hebrews were killed, as well as several
of their assailants. The BusBian troops,
who were called to the scene, favored
the rioters, and the latter continued to
carry on the attack until wearied out.
Much property was. destroyed. The
number of lives 'lost is not stated. In
consequence of the socialistic labor riots
at Lodz, the authorities have expelled
300 foreign workmen from Lodz. , Forty
of the leading rioters, including a' num
ber of socialistic agitators, were sen
tenced to long terms in prison.

ROSLYN MINE HORROR
Half a ' Hnnflrea Miners Instantly
, ''KiM.liy Eiplosion. .. ,
NO ONE LEFT TO TELL THE TALE.
The Worst Disaster That has Been
Chronicled on the Coast.
BKLIEF FORCES SET TO WORK.
Three Levels Affected.- JEvery
Probably Instantly Killed. '
Of her News.
Boslyn, W!jh., May 10. At 1 :45 this'
afternoon a terrible gas explosion oc
curred in the slope of mine No. 2 of the
Northern Pacific coal company at this
point, in which the loss of life exceeded
in number that of any other disaster
that has ever been chronicled in
the northwest or on the Pacific slope.
The exact nature of .the explosion or the
circumstances which led to it will prob
ably never be known, since at this writ
ing it is believed that every miner who
was at work in the slope at the time has
perished. - The accident occurred just
after the afternoon shift had gone on
duty. . A driver had just come out of the
elope when a tremendous explosion oc
curred Which upset his cars, knocked the
mules and driver down and bruised a
man a hundred feet away. ' The report
was heard all over the town, and the
mouth of the slope was soon surrounded
Dy an anxious crowd, which grew in
size every minute. It is not definitely
known as to the number of men who
were in the vicinity of the disaster, but
it is believed that between forty-five and
fifty were on the three levels affected by
the explosion. Large relief forces are
at work, and at this time two bodies
have been recovered." These men were
working nearest the opening and at
some distance from the point where it
it is supposed the explosion occurred.
Most of the men were -1,500 to 2,000 feel
further in the slope and in the immedi
ate vicinity of the accident. There is no
doubt, either in the minds of the miners
or the company officials, but what every
man was instantly killed by the explo
sion. As soon as it was possible to
enter, the relief forces set to work, bnt
their progress was impeded by the
smoke and damp, which' continued
to roll from the tunnel. At 7 :30
o'clock four bodies' were reached. A
pi ogress was made the frightful execu
tion of the explosion became more man
ifest. The timbers were torn- out for
hundreds of feet and the whole interior
was fearfully .wrecked. The scene Bur-
rounding the entrance to the mine was
of a distressing character. The wives
and children of many of the imprisoned
men gathered around, and their distress
was heartrending. In several instances
the deceased miners- will leave their
families in comfortable circumstances,
but in many cases the death of the hus
band, father, or son, removes their, only
support. The city hall was then turned
into a morgue, and when a body is re
covered it is laid in the ball to await
identification and the action of the cor
oner. . From the fearful wreckage of the
slope interior, and the doubt as to the
existence of fire in the lower level, there
is no way of determining how soon the
bodies can be recovered. Several of the
miners who have been taken out are
badly mutilated ; in one instance the
head being completely severed from the
body. . At midnight, . about the only
sound that breaks the stillness of the
night air is the footsteps of pedestrians
tramping to and from the mine, and
rumble of the dead wagon as it brings
its ghastly loads into the morgue, where
lie fourteen maimed pieces of what was
once humanity. It is the opinion of
Supt. Harrison that the explosion oc
curred either in the sixth level, west, or
in the seventh level, east, and his theory
is that some of the miners struck a drill
in a hole full of gas and water, the former
forcirg the latter out and bringing it in
contact with the miner's lamps. He is
convinced every miner who was working
on either of the three levels at the time
of the explosion is dead. ..-
Should Have Secured Rooms. 7
Portland, May 11. A dispatch from
Astoria says that passengers to the cele
bration . are disembarked in a cold,
drizzling rain and started on a tour of
exploration about the town in search of
lodgings. No regular headquarters or
reception rooms have been provided,
the only semblance being an informa
tion bureau where one can find the ad
dress of houses willing to accommodate
a single gentleman for $2 a night, or two
gentlemen for $2.50. Messenger boys
will show you a house for four bits. The
city hotels have not had any unengaged
rooms for several days.

Flg-hting Looked For.
Venezuela, May 11. The situation
in Venezuela is not materially changed.
Desertions continue from the govern
ment army. The deserters are princi
pally peasants and laborers recently
conscripted. Several skirmishes have
taken place between the advance posts
of the revolutionists and the govern
ment forces, but there has been no im
portant fighting reported since the bat
tle at Palito, in which the troops sent
out from Puerto Cabello by Palacio's
general were defeated. At Laguayra
and Puerto Cabello all is quiet at pres
ent, and there is no longer any difficulty
in discharging or loading cargoes. The
normal condition of affairs is largely
restored. Ko definite news has been
received from the seat of the revolution.
It is generally supposed, however, Vhat
the cause of rebellion is progressing
favorably. In all liklihood the next big
battle will be fought at La Victoria.
The revolutionists surround that town
on all sides, preventing communication
between It and Caracas." Palacio's
troops cannot render any aid to the
besieged town. Crespo's men occupy
all the commanding heights around La
Victoria. ,. The lull now existing cannot
last long, t Creppo continues to receive
arms and ammunition. When a full
supply shall have been obtained, he will
assume the offensive. Until now he has
been content to maintain his jjosition
around Valencia and La Victoria.
Idaho Miners' Strike.
Spokane, Wash., May 12. The trou
ble between the miners' union and the
mine owners' association in Coeur
d'AIene is assuming a decidedly serious
aspect. United States Marshal Pink
ham, of Boise City, has arrived at
Spokane on his way to the scene of trou
ble with warrants for the leaders and in
junctions against the miners from the
United States district court. The miners
have received several hundred rifles and
a quantity of ammunition. A gentle
man who arrived from C-oeur d'AIene
City tonight, saw the rifles being trans
ferred to the steamer on the lake. They
were addressed to the president of the
miners' union. This leaves little room
for doubt that there will eventually be a
conflict between the anion miners and
the non-union men, who are soon to be
shipped there, or their guards.
Measly Talk. .
New Mexico, May 12. Jay Gould,
with all bis millions, cannot purchase
health, and that is about all he wishes
to purchase, at present, notwithstanding
which a press telegram says : "It trans
pires that Jay Gould's protracted visit
was not solely for health. The annual
meeting of the Pecos Valley railroad
stockholders was held here, and Jt is
currently . reported that the road has
passed into Gould's control. The offi
cers refuse to talk upon the subject, but
no doubt a deal of some kind is on. This
road is in operation from Pecos, to Eddy,
heading for Albuquerque, where it will
meet the road to Durango, and thus
make a through line from Galveston to
Santa Fe. Possession of this road will
give Gould control of all the trade in
southeastern New Mexico."
