AGAIN BY A LONE HIGHWAYMAN There Wis Little Variation in the Ion. Highwayman's Usual Methods of Operating, . Ashland, Or., June 11. The regular monthly hold-op of the Kalamath Falls Ager stage occured last night about a half-mile north of the Topsy grade. It was a few minutes past 11 o'clock when the driver, Charles Barneburg, heard the same old order, "Halt and throw up out express box and mail pouches, and tell your passengers to get down" giyen hv the lone hiehwavman. There were two passengers aboard, one inside, Charles Swisler,- who was ton the seat with the driver, cut open the sacks, ac cording to orders. The driver and pas sengers were then ordered to remove their coats and vests and the driver was ordered to break'open the box, bat he told the robber the box was empty, and when he shook it, the robber seemed satisfied ane told the driver to but it back in the wagon, It was not opened. The robber ordered the . the driver to take out one of his lights and examine the inside of the wagon, and then to leave the light and move out of the way, and that, when he finished, they might come back and get " their coats. They moved on about 50 yards and could see the robber quite plainly 'as he went through the the registered mail and coats ; but he overlooked some registered letters and some $60 in cash that was in Zwisler's coat. After he had satis fies himself he called to the driver and passengers to come back and get their coats and what was left of the mail. While they were gathering the mall, the robber again went through the wagon to satisfy himself there was nothing held oat. He then bade - them good-night and they pulled out. The robber was a man of medium size and wore a dark overcoat and light straw hat. He had no mask on, but kept out of the light eo that his features could not be descried. He got only a few dollars from the passengers, and, it is thought, but Ititle from the mail pouches.

Three more negroes have been done to death by La fayette county citizens for that unpardon able sin, the a Beau It on a white woman, The press dispatches reported Monday that one negro, Bill Collins, had been lynched, but reliable information just re ceived makes it certain that the lynchers claimed three victims. The woman up on whom the outrage was attempted is Miss Jeanette Allen, 18 years old, and the belle of "Lafayette county. Friday morning about 3 o'clock Miss Allen was awakened by a noise in her room. As she moved her arm was clutched by a negro whom she recognized as Bill Collins, one of her father's employes. The negro threatened her with death if she made a noise, but Miss Allen, fear. ing a late worse than death, gave a scream which alarmed the household and caused the negro to flee. ' -The negro was chased all Friday, and at nightfall was captured. Collins was identified by Miss Allen, but while preparations were being made to lynch him he escaped. All Saturday and' Saturday night the negro was pursued. The chase led through the phosphate regions, where the negroes are numerous, and two of Collins' friends attempted to conceal him. These two were shot by the pur suers, and their bodies were placed on the railroad track, where they were cut to - pieces by passing trains. The mangled remains of these negroes were discovered Sunday morning. Several trains had passed over the bodies, and identification was impossible. Collins, the assailant of Miss Allen, was captured by the pursners early Sunday morning. He was taken to the scene of the at tempted outrage and notices sent out for people to gather and aid the lynchers. ' A great crowd assembled at noon Sun day. The negro was taken to the banks of the Swaunee river. There the negro was hanged and his body riddled with bullets. The corpse I was cut down, weighted with stones and thrown into the river. In eight months 14 negroes have been put to death in Lafayette county for assaults on white women. - In November last a young lady was assault ed. it was charged, by a band of profes sional ravishers. For this crime eight necroes were killed in the course of a few months. In May Miss Armstrong was assaulted and murdered, for which three negroes were put to death. These, with the three killed for the assault on MisB Allen, make 14. CUBAN INSURRECTION. Secretary Olney Taking a Hand in tbe -x Matter. . Washington, June 11. The determi nation to send the United States steam ship Raleigh in to the Florida coast for the purpose of co-operating with revenue cutters to prevent filibustering expedi tions starting from our shores, is one of the first acts of Mr. Onldy in his hew position. Secretary Herbert has deemed such a course advisable for some days past, and conferred with the president on the subject. He and Secretary Olney then had a futher conference, and as a result the formal orders to the Baleigh were issued. Written instructions carefully stating the line of policy which the administra tion desires to pursue in regard to the interference with filibusters will be sent to Captain Miller, commanding the Ra leigh, and it is probable be will be called to Washington for a conference with Acting Secretary McAdoo before his ves sel leaves New York. These instruc tions are not available, but it is known be will be directed to use the utmost care in preventing any vessel from leav ing our coast destined for Cuba with the object of rendering aid to the revolution ists. The mere shipment of arms is not regarded as a violation of tbe neutrality laws, and before any vessel is over hauled by the Raleigh tbe officers must be thoroughly convinced the suspected craft is fitted out as a fighting machine to operate against Spain. It is the de sire of the authorities that proper steps shall be displayed not only by the Raleigh, but by revenue eutters, to pre vent illegal expeditions from leaving shores, and treasury officials are serious ly considering the advisability of further augmenting the force of revenue cutters in southern waters. JSx-ftaperlBtendent Snowden of the Mint, Assaulted. Philadelphia, June 11. Colonel A. Louqon Snowden, ex-United States min ister to Greece, ex-superintendent of the United States mint, at Philadelphia, and a member of the Union League, was assaulted on the street last night by Col onel W. M. Rankle, an officer of the Third Pennsylvania artillery, during tbe war. Runkle without warning, struck Snowden with a cane. The latter de fended himself with an - umbrella until Runkle's cane was broken. Rankle was arrested, and held in bail for court. He alleges that Snowden was instru mental in having him discharged from the mint 20 years ago, and he bad a grievance against him ever since. Imitating Jessie Pomeroy. " Lapoete, Ind;, June 11. Indiana has a youthful murderer in Gilbert Bowslier, 4 years old, who killed Bernice Collins at Monticello, his victim being a tod dling infant of 2 years. Bowsher, who was in company with two other boys, passed Bernice on the street. The latter spoke to' Bowsher's companians, but re fused to notice him. This angered young Bowsher, and laying in wait for the Collins child, he attacked her with stones, and before her piteous cries for help brought relief, she was dead. The authorities are puzzled as to what steps are to be taken in dealing with the boy, the annals of the state failng to record a parallel case. Both families are prom inent. .

PASSENGERS AT LAST BEACH HER UaproToked and Fatal Assault Made Upon a Fishing- Party by Tough, Near Stuttgart, Arkansas. - . St. Malo, June 12. Particulars have been received here of the desertion of the passengers on the British vessel Whynot, by the crew after fire broke out on the ship on tbe way to the-island of Jersey. It appears that a fire was dis covered in the Whyuot's hold Saturday, und while the sailors were attempting to quench the flames a bucket dropped overboard. A boat was lowered to re cover it. The captain jumped into the boat, followed by the crew. One pas senger jumped overboard and swam after tbe boat, into which ne was reluctantly taken. The passengers were greatly alarmed, and the excitement among them increased when the small boat was seen pulling for Erquay, where the crew eventually landed. Taking advantage of a breeze, the passengers succeeded in beaching the Whynot near Erquay. The matter is being thoroughly investi gated by the local authorities. The captain of the Whynot, although not under arrest, is closely wa'tched by the police. TBI MOSLEM BARBARITIES Frightful Condition Existing In Eastern Turkey. Boston, Jane 12. A reliable Ameri can resident in Turkey, in a letter about the situation in Eastern Turkey, says : "The question now pending, holds within it the life or - death of , Oriental Christianity. Are these wicked and Godless fanatics to be permitted to dip their swords further in the blood of in nocent Christians? Day after day tbe pitiful story is told over and over again of pillage, burning, torture, murder, violence, rape, abduction, confiscation, desecration of churches, etc. - Mere human aid is entirely insufficient ; the intricacies ot the political question in volved, puts the solution of the problem far beyond our reach." The letter gives a new story concern ing the state of Tarkish prisons. In the Bitlis prison there are seven cells, each one large enough for 10 or 12 persons. There are between 20 and 30 crowded in to each one. . There are no sanitary arrangements. Armenians often have to drink the "knu litch" water. This is the water of the tank where Turks perform ablutions for prayer. Many specific cases are de scribed wherin the Turks inflicted the most horrible tortures npon the Arme nian prisoners, frequently beating them to death, and inflicting every conceiv able mode of punishment upon the help' less Christians.

Scott, national republican committeeman, in an interview, has de clared himself for S. B. Elkins for pres ident. . "We are eoina to name Elkins for president," said he. "He will be named on tbe second ballot. . I have been in the West tecently and found the senti ment everywhere for him. I believe West Virginia will-send a solid delega tion for Elkins. I predict that on the first ballot at the next convention Elkins will have the solid delegations of Cali fornia, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Ne vada, Wyoming, Washington and Colo rado, and a strong following in Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas. For the second place I favor a way ' out West man. ElkLns and a Western man will win." r Senator Scott favors a platform which shall be in keeping with Elkins' recently expressed silver sentiments, recognizing tbe white metal folly, but not declaring unqualifiedly for free coinage. -.- . ' Debs In Jail. Chicago, June 12. President Debs presented himself at the United States marshal's office at 11 a. m., after having been lost to the authorities since noon yesterday. 1 Debs came in shortly after tbe entire force of federal deputy mar shals in Chicago had been sent to search for him. -' He explained his absence by 8ayinghe was ill yesterday. He was to the office of a friend in the afternoon and fell asleep, be said, not awakening until 7 o'clock today. Aside from a bad head- j ache, he seemed' to be in good health when he arrived at the marshal's office, He deeply regretted, he added, that be bad failed to keep his appointment with the marshal, who was to have taken him to jail last night, and was surprised to hear of the'search for him. - He was em phitic in bis denial of the story that his tardy surrender was the result of a too- free indulgence in liquor. This after noon at 5, he was taken to the Wood' stock jail, and Howard was taken to the Will county jail at Joliet an hour later. BIB DESTINATION REACHED Fine Trip Made by tbe Mew Bt earner St. Louis. Southampton, June 13. The St, Louis, the new palatial steamer, which nas just maae a soccessiul maiden vov- age across tbe ocean, was docked at o clock: tnis morning. 1 be passage was a delightful one. Tbe daily runs to the Scilly islands were 314, 443,379, 441,444 432 and 416 milbs. - On a first trip this is considered excellent. The program of the entertainment on board included re citations by John Drew, Roland Buck' ston and others. It was remarked that but few St. Louis people were on board eight certainly not being a good, repre sentation. The passengers join in speak ing well of the new ocean flyer, and pre dict that she will be one of tbe fastest and safest steamers plying between New York and European ports. Mr. Towne, the representatives of the Cramps, says "I am thoroughly satisfied that the vessel is in e ry way as good as we could wish to build, and the trip has proved that we have carried out our contract." Mr. f. Uovecci, of San Francisco, in speaking of the steamer, said : "I do not want any better boat until America has one named San Francico." Captain Bland said : "Yes, we bad an uneventful trip. The St. Louis was designed for comfort rather than speed, We are not trying to break record. Still, we can go fast as necessary The chief engineer tells me the engines are the best adjusted and the best bal anced be has ever seen or had anytning to do with. He could easily have brought the chip into port last night, but really we were not in a hurry." 'Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British am bassador to Washington, who alo was a passenger, said to the Associated Press correspondent: "My boy, 1 sbould Jiice to tell you about Behring straits and seal fisheries, but my lips are sealed until I have com municated with the English foreign of fice." . Asked whether his trip had any import with the question regarding Canada and America or Newfoundland, he said : v .. ' "No; all American matters are quiet, I deeply deplore tbe death of my friend, Secretary Gresham." Among the second-cabin passengers there was much complaint regarding the table. Tne library donation by the city of St. Louis is a good one, but tbe donors ought to complain of the bookbinding, loose leaves being found in many books, Un Wednesday, when tbe passengers filed in to dinner, they found bouquets of carnations and souvenir badges at their plates. A set of resolutions was then drawn op and signed by all the passengers. The Durrant Trial. ' Santa Roba, Cal., June 12. It is re ported here today that the famous Dur rant murder case may be tried in the superior court here. It is rumored that a change of venue from the San Francisco superior court will be asked for on the ground that tbe" publicity given the case there makes it almost impossible to se cure an impartial jury. If tbe case is tried here it will not be the first time that important cases have been trans ferred from San Francisco to Sonoma county. The famous Colton railway case, the most voluminous in the history of the state, was tiied here,' as was also the famous Morrow bribery case. Three More Collma Passengers BaTed. San Francisco, June 12. An Exam iner special from Manzanillo, says that a letter received by the agents of tbe Pa cific Mail, here, states that two women and one man, Americans, t and ' Collma passengers, landed at Narangastilla, 50 miles southeast from Manzanillo, on May 29, and have been nursed by the Indians there.' They are now on mules on tbe way here. This story is corroborated by Duana Martima, the customs collector at Man zanillo.

Miss Julia A, Phillips read a paper entitled, "Tbe Experience of a Silver Dollar," which was well composed. O. K. Butler gave an address on "Free Coinage," which did credit to himself and showed careful study and good knowledge of the present environments. One feature of the even ing was a clarionet solo and piano ac companiment, by Prof. Helfritz and Miss Anna Heisler. Superintendent Shelley addressed the class and was followed by Prof. Frazler, who presented the diplomas with a few well chosen words of good cheer. Con gratulations were offered, after which the class adjourned to the Central House, where a sumptuous feast was spread in honor of the alumni of Dufur. A merry crowd of twenty young people were gnthered around the board, all of which did credit to themselves in the way of assisting in the disappearance of goodies Several good papers were read during the ' pauses, interspersed with appro, priate toasts, which were heartily res ponded to. May success and long life attend the class of 1895. " The crowd broke np at a late boar and dispersed to their respective homes, each well pleased with the evening, that will remain a pleasant memory in the hearts of all who attended and none will forget the year of '95.
