Helena, Mont., March 1. A spe
cial from Dillon cays: This city
haa been simply agog with excite
ment over toe "tar and feather'1 par
ty given to C. W. Bridewell, evan
gelist ot the "Holin?es People,"
Sunday night by a mob of several
hundred angry men. No other hap
pening in recent years has caused
as much talk, and public sentiment
is almost unanimous in upholding
the work of the f'tar party." '
' Many rumors have been circulat
ed, one b the effect that if tbV'Ho-
ly Rollers'' are subjtct to more at
tacks, they will retaliate and burn
every saloon in the city.. ;A weal
thy woman of this city, who has al
ways been a -prominent member of
the "Holy People," and who is a
relative of i the gospel : exhorter,
swore out warrants today- for ix
well-known young men of the city,
charging malicious mischief. , She
is quoted .as saying ...that she will
spend $10,000, if necessary, in pros
ecuting members of the mob, and
confidentially hopes to fill the state
prison with residents of bad Dillon.
Ibe mob s victim, w he a seen
early this morning showed' no ill ef
fects of hi9 ' trying experience, and
he staled that lie bad ireoonsidered
his promise given id the thob -that
he would leave towri,- as that prom
ise was given under compulsion.
and that many of the beBt people of
Dillon . promised him protection.
and therefore be would not leave
until panothe evasgelUitrd4to
lake up his work. Nevertheless he
was seen leaving the city in -closr
ed carriage" this afternoon. His re
turn will probably mean a repeti
tion of Sunday night's afiair and
will probably be. accompanied by
violence or even bloodshed. . ; , y

take part in the deliberations re
garding the conduct of the war, and
incidentally. to aid in the prepara
tion of the plan of campaign. . ..
..This, step on the part of the czar,
is regarded as highly significant, in
view of the fact that .General Dra
gomiroff has severely csiticised Ad
miral AlexfefPs policy, .and ha in
sisted that the sensible posicy would
have been to direct botn the army
and navy to evacuate Port , Arthur,
and not to have permitted the Jap

tained, would have been a sensible
policy, and ' wold have . pie vented

Port Arthur should be abandoned
has been criticised in severe terms
by General Kouropatkin and other

a fact that there is a general feeling

followed the beginning of hostilities.

Oregon "City, March 1. Maud
Russel and Clara Young, two young
ladies- residing : .-near :, Wilboit
Springs, were attacked bne evening
recently near their homes : by a
band of . half-starved, coyotes and
narrowly escaped. : ; Mies , Russel
fortunately was - armed with a
rifle, ; with which she dispatched
the leader of tbe animals and tbe
other quadrupeds were put to night
by tbe noise of tbe explosion.
The coyotes in the interior of the
country have become uuusually
troublesome of late, tbe excessive
snow in the mountains having de
prived them of a source of food sup
ply, and they are now foraging to a
considerable, extent on the flocks
and herds of the farmers, but this
is the first instance reported in
which they have attacked human
beings. . - -
Arthur fleeet; and possibly the bl
berian squadron now penned up in
Vladivostok harbor, must inevita
bly be lost io Russia. '
The feeling through Russia is so
strong mat tne czar nas . tell con
strained to order -Count von Plehve
to represB even the patriotic street
manifestations. It is held that these
demonstrations are not only very
often inappropriate, ' inasmuch as
they celebrate only imaginary vic
tories, but that they are likely , to
produce counter manifestations
from the revolutionists, especially
from the students, who are mem
bers of the secret societies than are
planning an uprising.
it is an acknowledged fact that
the police pay rough characters to
turn out and shout for the czar and
tbe government in order tbat they
may call the attention of the higher
officials to the "patriotism" of the
people, and this fact has aroused
the indignation of manv of the
more enlightened class.- Many cit
izens are not only . disgusted with
such artificial and more or lesa -
drunken exhibitions, but they ate
also opposed to the war, and some
of them feel so. strongly i that they
have even: ventured to protest, r
The. students of the high schools
and universities have protested em
phatically, against the "royal ad
dresees".iB regard to the war, drawn
up by the professors who : desire to
curry favor with the authorities.
Similar protests have been made
by the students in the St. , Peters-
burg polytechnic snchools and Um
engineering institutions. -:
Tbe attitude of the pupils of tha
nurses school for . women in St. Pe
tersburg has caused tbe authorities
to close the institution, owing to tha
itrength of the anti-war feeling.
"tRome, March 3.-The . Aagenzia
Liberia has ' received a , dispatch
from its correspondent; . at Harbin '
in which the latter states the con
ditions are frightful. . .: There is &
scarcely of supplies lor the Russian
troops already in Manchuria, and
those arriving daily carry but scant
commissary scores,,,, Many of the
troops he declares, are actually suf
fering with hunger. . .. ,f..-,
The correspondent states that the.
Arcric cold is increasing the death.
rate1 among the troops until it ie ap
proaching ' alarming . proportions.
.The officers in charge of the com
missary arrangements are. grossly,
incompetent, and the "eonfusion ,is.
incredible. . ' -,
Vladivostok, the correspondent
declares, will prove an easy prey to
the Japanese. The country between
it and Harbin is filled with Chun
cbuzes, who are in such force that
it would require aa army division
to dislodge then). , j The officials
knew this,' and will make no at-
aempt at present to sepd . reinforce
jnente to the. beleaguered peit.
- Vienna, March 3. At one of the
largest meeti ngs ever held here of
Christian Socialists,- a resolution
was adopted praying heaven's bless
ing upon the Russian arms, and
wishing Russia brilliant victory
over tbe yellow race. Several mu
nicipal councillors and one priest
explained to the meeting that the
Japanese cause was identical with
that of the Jews, aqd consequently
all good "Christians",, must, - wish
that neiteer the Japanese nor the
Jews shall come out of the war with
a whole skin.
Ruesla they declared, deserves
the sympathies of all nations, be-,
cause she has been nearest the
hearts of tho3e who bate the Jews.
Tokio, March 3. It is report
ed, that a mile and a quarter of the
branch line of the Trans-Siberian
railway connecting Vladivostok and
Harbin has been deotroyed at a
point outside of Min Guma, a town
midway between the two terminals.
Tbe Japanese agents who per
formed this feat also removed the
telegraph wire along the line, thus
effectively isolating Vladivostok.
Drain, Or., Feb. 27. A shooting
affray occurred here last eve
ning 'in which Frank Hill, a
schoolboy, was 6hot in the left
thigh " by -Lee " Cannon, - another
schoolboy, . tbe ball taking -effect
near the base of - the tbigh, and
making an ugly and painful, though
not necessarily dangerous, wound.
The attending surgeon was unable
to locate the- bullet. ' -
The affair is the culmination of
an attempt on the part of several
young women, accompanied by a
few-young 'men, to punish young
Cannon with rotten eggs for alleged
defamatory ' ' remarks concerning
some of the young women.
