Union Men Barred.
Spokane, May 8. The mines of Sho
shone counly, Idaho, that propose to
operate during the reign of martial law
may Ho to tnly on condition that they
do rot errpby members of the Ooeur
d'Alene Miners' Union. This is the
martial law as laid down by General
Merriam and Attorney-General Ha) es,
At a meeting of the mineowners in
this eily this morning Mr. Hayes pre
sented this mandate, and the owners
cheerfully promised to obey.
"We're going to clean up the Cceur
d'Alenes," said Attorney-General Hayes
prior to hit departure for Boise. "I have
teen some of the mineowners today, and
they have been inform d by the proper
authorities that they cannot employ
any one connected with a criminal or
ganization in the county. The miners'
union in Shoshone county contains many
desperadoes and criminals, who have,
under the protection of the union, per
petrated crimes and outrage". Twice
has it been necessary because of these
men and tbeir organization, to put the
country under martial law. We want
to put a stop to tbat sort of thing.
"The owners living in Spokane allow
the union to run things, and when prop
erty is threatened or riots occur as a re
sult, they wire to the governor of Idaho
to send troops to protect their property.
Some of these owners know who the
men are who left their mines to go up
to Wardner for the purpose of blowing
up the Banker Hill and Sullivan mill.
They allowed the men to go out of the
mines to destroy the property of an
other and then to return to work."

Washington, May 9. The postnaster
gmeral has directed the postmaster at
San Francisco to tako out of the mails
for Manila three pamphlets iesued by
Edwar.i Atkinson, of Boston, vice-pres
ident of the Anti-imperialistic League.
This order does not apply to the circula
tion of pamphlets by mail in this country
but bars the dispatch to the Philippines,
discontent and even mutiny among the
soldiers being stated by the department
m being the design of these publications.
The three pamphlets are especially de
scribed, and in no circumstances are
they to be forwarded to the Philippines.

Aguinaldo was terrified by the situa

begged Luna and Mascardo not to plunge
tho Filipino forces into civil strife at
such a time.
His entreaties prevailed, Luna re
turned to the (rout with reinforcements,

insubordination. The battle of San

wounds in the shoulder and groin that

Secrettiru Mjer Whitewashed,
General Egan Censured and
Washington, May 8. By diieciion of
the president, who approves the find
ings, Acting Secretary of War Meikle
johu today made public the report and
findiiiKS of the military court appointed
to investigate the charges made by
Major Unnoral Miles, commanding the
army, that the beef supplied to the
army during the war with Spain was not
fit lor the use of the troops. Tbe most
Important fe.ttures of thd report are:
The finding that the general's findings
that the ref: iterated boef was treated
witli chemic.ls were not established;
that his al elation concern in.' the
cau tied fresh or canned roast beef were

eral Miles for "eiror ' in . failing to
promptly notify the secretary of war
vtln n he Ant formed the opinion that
the food was unfit; censure of the com
missi ry-general (then Cuneral Egan)
for the too extensive purchase i f the
canned beef an an untried ration ; cen
sure of Colonel Man, of General Miles'
staff; the finding thar the packers were
not at fault, and that the meats supplied
to'ttt army were of the same quality as
those Bupphed to the trade generally,
and the recoinuienda ion that no further
proceedings will ' be taken in the premi
ses. The conclusion of the court adverse to
further proceedings based upon the
charges is as follows : .
' It has been developed in the course
of the inquiry, as recited in this report,
that in some instances some individuals
failed to perform the full measure of
duty or to ob erve the proprieties which
dignified military laws command; but
the court is of tho opinion tint the me e
statement of ollicial facts develop d
mfets the end f discipline and that the
interests o:' the service ill be bst sub

There is more or lees criticism of Gen
eral Miles in various parts of the report.
Probably the most direct instance is the
one which states that beyond the criti
cifin of officers found thewhero ia the
"The court finds that against none of
the officers eommaudingcorps, divisions,
brigades and regiments and their staff
officers should a charge of guiltv be
"The court also finds that the major-
general commanding the army had not
sufficient justification for alleging that
the refrigerated beef was embalmed or
was unfit for issue to troops, ft also
finds that he committed an error in that,
having belief or knowledge, as claimed,
that the food was unfit, that it caused
sickness and distress, that some of it
was supplied under the pretense of ex
periment, that if the beef was embalmed
he did not immediately communicate
such knowledge or belief to the secre
tary of war, to the end that a proper
remedy might be promptly applied."
The censure of Colonel Maus, inspetor-
general d"h General Miles' staff, is based
upon bis failure to call attention to
charges concerning the beef at Chicka-
magua contained in a report of inspec
tion made by Dr. or Major Daly on the
26ih of October last, in which he stated
his belief that the beef was cbemicully
"Tbe silence of Colonel Maus," says
the court, "on so' important a matter as
the chemicalized beef report by Major
Daly and personally known to himself,
is most remarkable."
Tbe remark is also made that General
Miles' failure to draw special attention
to this report is "unexplained." Com
menting upon General Miles' testimony
that he had first formed the opinion last
August that the the refrigerated beef
bad been processed.
Tbe court is of tbe opinion tbat the
canned roast beef is not suitable ass

tbe absence of cooking facilities and tbe
absence from that ration of fresh vegeta
