in the democratic gain is main

Denver, 'Nov. 3. With nearly
full returns from the election in
this city and scattering returns
from various parts of the state,
there seems to be little doubt of the
San Francisco Examiner: The
American flag, which for thirteen
years floated above four palmy ieles
in the South Seas, known as the
St. David Group, was recently
hauled down and the emblem of
Holland hoisted in its place. The
Dutch colonial government sent a
gunboat to the islands to enforce
their demand that the flag of the
United States should come down.
The story of the affair reached this
.country for the first time on Octo
ber 28, the news being brought by
the German trading schooner Di
ana, which arrived from the Caro
line islands. Captain James Zaoh-
ary formerly master of Millionaire
Fithian's yacht Rover, was a pas
senger on tne Uiana, and. to him
the natives on the St. David's Isl
ands told the story of the insult to
the Americau flag.
The St. David Islands are four
incumber and lie near the equator,
close to New Guinea. The isles are
small, but , exceeding fertile, and
yield an abundsnce of copra. Thir
teen years ago David O'Keefe, an
American known as the "Copra
King of the Caroline Islands,"
came there and hoisted the Ameri
can flag. This fact has remained
unknown until now. Captain
Zachary tells the following story;- .
"in trading among the Caroline
Islands I visited the islands of St.
David, and there learned of the U-
surpation of them by the Dutch.
O Keefe who was a trader , well
known in this city and who recent
ly perished at sea, secured the right
to the islands from the native
kings and placed the isles under
the American flag. H ; married a
native, woman. . borne time ago a
Dutch gupboat visited this group
and ordered the natives . to haul
down the flag. , Olsen refused to
obey the command and a , number
of marines were landed from , the
warship, the flag was hauled down
and the, flag of The Netherlands
hoisted in its stead." ' - ' .
Detonations Plainly Heard in City

Peekakill, N. Y., Nov. 4. Six
teen men are reported dead and a
number wounded as a. result of a
series of explosions today on . Iona
Island, in the Hudson, used by the
government as a storehouse for dy
namite and powder. The first ex
plosion occurred shortly before 1
o'clock, and was followed by others
for more than an hour, the detona
tions being heard in this city until
2:3 o. A telephone call was sent
here for everv physician, available.
and all that could be found respond
ed to the call. Beyond the fact that
16 men were killed and manv
wounded, no details of the disaster
was obtainable at 2 :2o,
The explosion was heard
more than ten miles. The uland
is five hundred yards from the west
shore of the Hudson, but rocks
and dirt were hurled to the banks,
falling on the tracks of the West
Shore Railroad. A large amount
of the explosives of the North At
lantic Squadron was stored on the
island and several hundred men
were stationed there. The blaze of
buisting explosives made a terrify
ing spectacle, which was watched
by hundreds of persons on this side
of the river.
Four years ago the government
purchased the entire island for the
purpose of converting it. into a na
val magazine'. The work wbs, be

have done for me. You deserve all
the praise that's been given you in

Lake Village, Ark., Nov. 3.
Two people '. are dead and three
wounded as the result of a trouble
between whites and blacks here to
day, which was not settled until
a lynching had quieted the excited
people. ' 1
A" riot occurred between -some
negroes and whites early in the day.
It is alleged that during the alter
cation, Ed Coleman, colored, pull
ed a pistol and began shooting. A
fusillade . followed, and when it
ceased, it was found that Frank
Anderson, one of those in the crowd
was dead. Vinson was shot in two
places, Joseph Frame wounded in
the foot, and Ella McDowell, color
ed, shot in the back.
Coleman fled, and a posse at
once started in pursuit. Johnson,
one of the negroes, was arrested.
At noon, the mob gathered at the
Sledge-hammers and railroad
irons were quickly found and in
thirty minutes four doors at the
jail had been broken down. The
mob quickly secured the nrgro,
took him to the center of the town,
and hanged him at noon.

cannot be prosicuted as a criminal
because the offenses charged dat9

in the Post-Omce department tra

seemed to implicate Heath, as the
executive officer of the department,
but it was thought - impossible to
prosecute him owing to the "statu ti

Bure of this after it happens.
