Ntw Vokk, July 17. A Washington
dispatch to a morning paper of pro
nounced anti-administration proclivities
says: The fact has just come to light
that the administration, through Secre
tary Gresham, has committed another
diplomatic blunder which ia considered
even more serious than the attempt to
restore Queen Liiiuokalani. which may
have more Important results. Members
of the diplomatic corps, among w hom
the facta have created something of a
aensution, tell another story of it. The
Chinese minister, who has been in fre
quent consultation of late with the sec
retary of state regarding the strained
relations between Japan and Corea, has
linnlly induced the secretary to send an
oflicial cable dispatch to the Japanese
government expressing the disHalit-fuc-tlon
of toe United States w ith the policy
which Japan baa followed with Corea,
and closing w ith the words :
"The United States viewe with regret
the levying of an unjust war by Japan
upon a weak and defenseless nation like
This is considered a greater diplomatic
blunder than the secretary's action in
the Hawaiian controversy, but there has
not been time to realize the full extent
of the message. The Japanese govern
ment has made no reply, and has proba
bly not yet recovered from its aetonit-b-ment.
At the Japanese legation here
the officials profess to know nothing
altnut the belligerent message, and ex
press grave doubts as to the accuracy ot
the atory. There is no doubt about the
existence of the dispatch. Secretary
Gresham has shown a copy of it to Sir
Julian Pauncefote. The Chinese and
Corean legations have copies of it, and
the fact of its existence Is known to
several memliera of the house and aenate
committee on foreign relations.
Allen Going Home,
Cuic.u.o, July 17. The Evening Jour
nal prluta the following: The Euro
pean low rates Inaugurated by the trad
ing ateaiuship lines may result in a
wholesule exodus from Chicugo of many
men connected with the late ptrike.
Never before in the history of steamship
rates has it been jiossible to go from
Chicago to an European port so cheaply.
Since the cut rates have been inaugu
rated, the exodus fron Chicago and the
Northwest to various points in Europe
haa figured up a third of the local traffic
to New York, according to estimates of
local steamship lines, and the announce
ment of the last cut in ratea has started
a real liegira of European-born jieople.
Dozens of men who said they were now
on strike have been milking inquiries nt
the local ateaiuship offices w ithin the
lust few days, expressing their intention
of going to the "old country" in case
the strike was a failure. There w as a
half-dozen interesting phases of the
present situation, and there is much
food for thought iu the depletion of the
standing army of unemployed in this
country by return of workers to their
homes abroad. It is estimated that
before long labor will be at a premium
instead of a discount, and there are not
a few who figure on a season of pros
perity aa a consequence of the return to
Europe of thousands who have been in
the past six months unsuccessful candi
dates for employment.
The Act of the r)jrinpatblr.r.
MisHut'LA, Mont., July 17. An east
bound Northern Pacitle train, the first
in sixteen daya, was wrecked today at a
point about two inilea east of bore by a
dynamite cartridge concealed in the
track. The engine had barely struck
the pot when a terrific explosion was
heard, the shock shattering the pilot
and right cylinder and piston rod. It
also broke the windowa of the tab and
the mail car. Had the engine gone
fairly over the cartridge, the result
would have been more disastrous, as
some eight coaches constituted the train,
which was loaded with troops and
passengers. The strikers denounce the
act In unmeasured terms. There iscon.
siderable feeling over the return to
work of some engineers and conductors,
and it ia believed that some one in sym
pathy with the atrikera adopted this
method of deterring further progress.

,M Any lam, Or.. July 17. One of the
most severe thundeistorma ever wit
nessed prevailed at thia place Saturday
night. Several large trees were struck,
but no damage to stock or property has
been reported. Aliout two milca north
of here the storm w as a regular tornado,
and did a great amount of damage to
property. A new bophouse, just com
pleted on the farm of W. A. Jackson,
waa completely demolished. A large
barn of George Biding was unroofed and
the roof carried into a field some dis
tance away. Out-buildings, fencing and
fruit trees were badly damaged, and in
several hopyards the vines were blown
down and sustained much damage.
The wind was from the northwest and
covered an area one mile wide.
The residence of E. P. Carter, about
five miles east of here, was struck by
lightning during the storm and Mrs.
Carter waa slightly injured. The house
was damaged to a considerable extent,
and a dog which waa under the house at
the time was killed.
New Men on the orthrrn I'nclfic.
Tacoma, July 17. Three hundred and
fifty-one new employes have been put
to work oil the Pacific division of the
Northern Pacific since the strike began.
Practically, all the old engineers have
returned to work. Many of the switch
men, conductors, freight clerks and fire
men who quit h:ive asked for their po
sitions, but not all could be taken back,
as new men bud been employed. The
road would be in operation as usual,
from end to end, tiie officials say, but
for the guerilla warfare that is being
continued. The force of deputy
marshals iu this state has been reduced
from 300 to 2li0. All bridges are being
guarded, but chiefly by regulars.

the supreme court of New York for the
purpose of being relieved of taxation in

Oklahoma, O. T., July 17. Jasper
Jennings, a reliable scout and cowboy,
just in from the Cheyenne and Arapahoe
country, reports serious trouble between
Indians and settlers. Ranchmen are pre
paring for a tight. The trouble has been
brew ing since April, when two Indiana
and a white man were killed in an affray.
The Indians claim sovereignty over the
ands, and permit their cattle and horses
to run at will to the damage of the set
tlers' crops. The settlera are wont to
shoot the trespassing animals. Men
posted in Indian affairs say in the event
of a fight blood will be shed, us the In
dians are well armed.

S. Loris, July 18. The republic to
morrow w ill publish a page article to de
monstrate that the stockholders of the
Union Pacific are liable for the debt of
he road to the government. A state
ment of a nnmtr of supposititious facts
is made, which the republic says, con
tain so much of plausibility, as they ap
pear on the records of the government,
that to ignore them and proceed to a
final settlement d'uadvautageoua to the
public, without the most exhaustive
scrutiny of the" rights of the government
against the stockholders, would neg
ligence on the part of the executive and
legislative branches of the government,
the suppositions are printed as follows:
"By the terms of the contract offered
by the United States government and
agreed to by the Union Pacific railway,
a trusteeship was created for certain
great purposes, above and beyond which
was the mere commercial act of con
structing a highway for common car
riage; that the company built the road
for $86,000,000, and pretends thut itcost
93,000,000 accepting from the govern
ment about f 38,000,000 in bonds and land
grants, when its stock was suffcient to
build and completely equip the road;
that the stockholders did not pay cash
money into the company's treasury for
their stock, as explicitly required by the
terms of the contract and the law of
their franchise, but built the road w ith
the proceeds of the government subsid
ies and pocketed the stock, the first
mortgage bonds and the coal profits,
without rendering any account of these
proceeds to the government; that by
these and other acts, before the date of
the redemption of the subsidy bonds,
the company haa beome bankrupt,
meanwhile having averted the payment
of interest to the government, as origin
ally contemplated in the acts of congress;
the government, finds itself by this
series of fraudulent acts and fraudulent
concealments deprived of the money
due it from the company, and finds
itself charged with the payment of
bonds it issued in aid of construction ;
that the government finds it has the
right of action against the stockholders,
as trustees, who who have violated their
trust, and further (in lj th.it the
stockholders who are living, and the es
tates of those deeeaseil, are sufficient to
read'ly meet the obligation created by
the trust and its gross violation."
The Republic then proceeds as fol
" Is there not enough in these state
ments to compel congress and theexecu
tive to ask imperatively these questions :
Was a trusteeship created by the acts of
1802 and 1804 and their acceptance by
the company? Wus the trust violated
by concealments and frauds? Does any
equity require indulgence toward these
stockholders and their beneficial ie?;
Why a funding arrangement should be
concluded which w ill continue for a cen
tury the?e entanglement j until the
powers and rights of the government to
collect its debts are exhausted?"

Washington, July IS. Speaker
Crisp says there will be no report from
the tariff conference committee today.
The house democratic leaders evidently
think it might prove independent to
carry out the plan of reporting a total
disagreement and asking for instructions,
as such a report would only emphasize
the character of the difference, and
should the aenate ami house instruct
their conferees to stand by their respec
tive positions it would precipitate a
deadlock. One of Mr. Crisp's closest ad
advisers said one report would probably
come in tomorrow. The house conferees
desire to'make a partial report of such
agreements as are possible and ask for
instructions on is, subject to disagree
ment. The senate conferees have stood
for agreement or disagreement iu toto.
The democratic confereea today made
another ineffectual effort to reach an
agreement, and adjourned with the un
derstanding the full committee to meet
at 2 o'clock was to report disagreement.
One of the house conferees said the re
port would be a disagreemcet in toto.
It is expected to be the first business
taken up by the liuiise tomorrow. The
republican conferees could caue delay,
but such action is not anticipated.

To Coin Silver Dollar..
Philadelphia, July 18. Mr. Pres
ton, the director of the mint, today, by
direction of the secretary of the treasury,
issued orders to the mint authorities at
San Francisco and New Orleans to begin
at once the coinage of silver dollars, and
during the present month, to coin up to
the ordinary capacities of the mints.
The silver to be first coined will be-
blanks and ingots, of which there is suf
ficient to coin, about 1,500,000 at these
mints and at Philadelphia. As soon
as this supply is exhausted, work will
probably begin on the silver bars, of
which there ia a year's supply at San
Francisco and New Orleans, and prob
ably five years' supply at Philadelphia.
So far as can be learned, it is not the
purpose of the government to extend
the coinage of the seigniorage beyond a
few millions, but it is stated that, after
the coinage of what gold may be nec
essary, and coining the abraded frac
tional silver, each of tho three mints
probably w ill be worked at their, nor
mal capacity on silver dollars for the
next few months at least, and perhaps
to the end of the present year.
Whether treasury notes will be retired
as fas', as received by silver, so far a
known, has not been determined.

Cheyenne, July 18. The ultimatum
has gone forth that the railway shops
on the Wyoming und Idaho divisions of
the Union Pacific, which were closed
July 2, will not be opened for teneral
repair work until business revives and
there is a demand for motive power.
The decision is a great disappointment
to hundreds of employes and will para
lyze business in ull divisions tow i9 on
the system between Cheyenne and Port
laud. The men fully realize the trouble
which has been brought upon them by
Debs and his onion. Hundreds of men
will endeavor to secure employment
elsewhere, many having availed them
selves already of the free transportation
offered by officials to enable them to
reach terminal points.
