Chicago, Nov. 17. The crisis in
the strike is on today and great ex
cilement prevails in this city. Un
ion pickets this morning attempted
to intercept a wagonload of sap
plies and bedding which the rail
way company's agents were endeav
oring to land at the barns for the
use of non-union employes. - The
mob was fired upon by the wagon
drivers, and a number of the com
pany's detectives following the wag
on in carriages whipped out their
revolvers and joined in the chase.'
The pickets fled and are presuma
The police was again augmented

declared 'when full police protec

lines will be resumed. - Sympathiz

The police in all cases are quick to
arrest the drivers. ; - :v -- r
More excitement was caused here
this afternoon when from a hall

passing car .which was filled with
policemen, A : big bar of pigiron
was thrown through another car
following, which had the effect of
wounding an olhcer. ' ; - ?
Immediately after the shot was
fired a panic ensued, in which men,
women ana children were tram
pled. Police officers rushed from
the car and into the building from
which the shot was fired. ' The of
ficers were hindered by the closing
and lockin g of doors. After a thor

been made the cooclusion was reach

had any part in the assault.

sent to the children's hospital for
treatment for pneumonia, and was

absence of the nurse the ' bedding
caught fire and the baby was burn

1 Wasco, Or., Nov. 17. The peo
ple of this town are congratulating
themselves that the conflagration
that visited them this morning
luckily was ; overcome - before the
whole place was reduced to ashes.
As matters stand nearly $150,000
worth of pwrty was destroyed
and had not the high wind provi
dentially died out, the loes would
have reached to five times that a-
Fire started in the Oregon Trad
ing company's big store about 12:30
this morning and soon became un
manageable, there being nonorgan
ized fire department of any kind in
the town. ' The flames ' soon com
municated with the Wasco ; opera
house and the residence occupied
by James Venable and then other
small buildings. "
The Oregon Trading company
was the largest general merchandise
house m Sherman county and. is a
total loss. Mr. George Cro6field
was severely burned in attempting
to save some valuable papers.
The wind, which was high, chang
ed into the east, which was all that
saved the Wasco warehouse and
milling company, the band and
another large warehouee, situated
across the street from the Oregon
trading company store. ev
, Even under the change to the
favorable it was a hard fight to save
them with the meagre apparatus at
band. Had the wind continued
from any other direction the ' loss
would have reached several hun
dred thousand dollars.
New York, Nov. 17. The funer
al of Philanthropist - Green was
held today. After the services at
the Presbyterian" church . the body
Was forwarded on a funeral train to
Worcester, Mass., where it will be
interred. An immenee cortege of
hundreds of prominent people were
present at the i funeral, including
Mayor Low and a delegation from
all the departments of the municip

Denver, Nov. 18. Rev. Felix M.
Le pore, pastor of the Mount Car
mel Catholic church, and another
Italian named JoejSorici were fatal
ly wounded tonight in a duel which
was the result of a card game they
were playing in the priest's apart
ments in the church: building.
Father Lepore was shot twice in
the abdomen and once in the face,
and Sorici was shot once in the ab
domen. There seems to have been
no eyewitnesses to the affair, and
all those who were near the scene
are very reticent. Both - men were
taken to St. Joseph's hospital, where
it is said they cannot recover.
:" Reno, Nevr,' Nov," 18. Lying half
covered Jp' with brush in an irriga
fe&n . ditch a;ehort ? distance below
the town, was found at noon today
by, Italian laborers the body of a
man in an. advanced stage of - de
composition. His feet and hands
were, tied together with a heavy
rope, his skull appeared to have
been crushed, as if with a rock.
His body was not recognizable, and
nothing about the clothes revealed
his identity. y V'
From . appearances the murder
was committed a month ago. The
officers are entirely at sea with re
gard to the crime.
Redd ing, Cal., Nov. 17. The
war between the sheep and the cat
tlemen of Modoc county has passed
out of the talking stage, and e hoot
ing is now being done from am
bush.!' -----: :..r; .. . !
John Robinson last week lost
100 sheep from his band ranging at
Cougar neck, the shots -being from
men in hiding.' ; A shepherd dog
was shot almost at his feet, showing
that the man op the firing line were
not oyer particular as to human life.
Robinson has no idea who the guil
ty parties .are and is almost in de-.
spair that the authorities will be a
ble to do anything in the matter. V
Lynching of the culprits and law
breakers is openlv talked of and
the terrible lvncbing bee that dis
graced Lookout and Modoc counties
three 5 ears ago may be reproduced.
Even the newspapers speak with
approval of the people taking the
administration of the law into their
own hands.. . r: .
The Alturas Plaindealer, pointing
to the fact that in six years no one
has been convicted of crime in the
county, concludes with these words:
"Three years ago. we ascribed the
Lookout lynching to the maladmin
istration of justicein Modoc county.
livery word we uttered . then , was
true, and if we are to escape similar
outbursts in the future, justice must
be tneeted out to criminal?, no mat

A HARD FIGHT FOR LIFE
FIR E MENACES MAGAZINE ON
Lieut. Curtin and Five Seamen
'Overcome in Heroic Fight to
Prevent Explosion in Midst
of Torpedo Flotilla at
Norfolk, Va., Nov. 15. The he
roism of Lieutenant Curtin and sev
eral seamen on board the : torpedo
boat Destroyer Lawrence today
saved that- craft from destruction.
A light candle left by a workman
on a wooden box in the vessel's for
ward compartment caused a fire
which burned much of the Law
rence's woodwork before it was ex
tinguished by : Lieut. Curtin and
and some seamen, just before the
flames reached the magazine, in
which a large quantity of explosives
were stored. "
In their "battle against the flames
Lieut. Curtin and five seamen were
so overcome by the smoke that they
lost consciousness after the fight
was won, . and were hurried on
board the cruiser Olympia for treat
ment. The fire occurred in a stuffy com
partment directly adjoining the
magazine and had gained consider
able headway when it was discov
ered. The place was filled with a
derjBe smoke that baffled the efforts
of the crew and caused them to fall
helpless to the steel floor.
Time and again Lieut Curtin
dived into the fire chamber and e
merged with the unconscious form
01 a searran in his grasp. , Alter a
hurried resuscitation the seaman
and his officer would return to the
fight only to again succumb to the
Fnally the names were extin
guished, and then the lieutenant
was missed; A tailor plunged into
toe compartment, and a second la
ter came put with the limp hody of
the olhcer in his arms.
Five seamen in a similar condi
tion were stretched out on the deck.
All were hurried on. board of the
Olympia in dry-dock, and the sur
geons soon brought them to con
sciousness. The damage to the
Lawrence was trifling. ; '
Ihe Lawrence is a steel craft with
a displacement of 470 tons, r She is
246 feet and 3 inches long over all,
and her locomotive force is 8,400
horse, power. She was launched

Mass., being christened, by Mies
Rulh Lawrence, ef New York,
daughter of Supreme Court Judge
Lawrence, and a descendent of Cap
tain James Lawrence, for whom the
boat is named. The 'Don't Give
Up the Ship" of Captain Lawrence
is historic- ' . ;; ,

Daly last night, "I am a member
of the state senate; certainly. Why
Mr. Daly last year was re-elected
to the senate from iseoton county
and eooo after that body adjourned
last winter was appointed .surveyor-general
"And," went on Mr. Daly, "I'll
occupy my seat in the legislature
unless the senate throws me out.
- "Have I resigned from the senate?
No. .Nor will I resign before the
extra session. I wish to save Brn
ton county the expense of a special
election. Besides, in the hatte and
jumble of a special election tome
body might be chosen who ain't fit
for the place.- And he'd hold over
to the next regular session."
"But this isn't for . publication;
. "Not even for the people of Bin
ton county?", was asked, -r
"Go ahead. Print all you like; I
don't care." '
"Why can't 1 retain my seat lrf
the legislature when Senator Mulkey
has been drawing down $1600 or
$2000 a year as president of the
State Normal at Ashland? And
mine's only a 10-cent job, too." .
Just then State Senator Booth,
of Lane, hove in sight, , After a
brief interchane of "good evenings,"
and .''howare-yous," Senator Da
ly launched forth on his discourse
But," questioned Senator Booth,
"will you sit also in the next regu
lar session in 1905?" v ,
,(Oh no," protested Mr.Daly, "oh
no, indeed. By that time my sue
ceesor will be eleoted without extrft ..
expense to the people of Benton. .1
"And if you should be caafr
out" ; , ' -'
"Well, Benton wouldn't havela.
bear the cost of a special election.
Besides, Benton's representation its.
the House would be sufficient fo the .
short session. My county's inter
ests are common with those of the
whole state in this tax matter."
Mr. Daly regarded an extra ses
slon as supremely necessary. "Be
cause, otherwise, taxpayers would -be
sorely distressed next year witX
two tax payments." f
"And," added Mr. Daly, there'
pretty good indication that money's
going to be tight next year anyhow.
Isn't that so, Senator Baoth?"
"Our part of the statr," respond
ed Mr. Booth, "coull probably get
along, No, I don't regard an extra
session as absolutely-'" necessary;
however, it is probably advisable. -
