St. Petersburg. Nov. 15. The latest advices from Vladivostok, re ceived at an early hour this morn ing, state that the mutiny there is now under semi-control, although the danger is by no means over. The Chinese quarter has been en tirely destroyed by fire, and the loss of life is reported to be very large, but, owing to the strict cen soiship, it is impossible to secure any adequate details. So far as can be learned the trou ble was similar to that at Cronstadt, although on a very much larger scale. The soldiers mutinied be cause of the unfit food served to them, 'and several of the regiments murdered their officers. They then ran amuck, acd for sev eral hours were absolutely in con trol of the city, parading through the streets and killing all who op posed them. The first news of the outbreak reached the minister of marine Mon day night, but he held it back, and so far has positively refused to per mit any portion of the information in his possession to become public, fearing the effect on the people in the present inflamed state of public opinion. The soldiers looted all of the stores in the town, and also the postoffice, where they seized all of the government funds. It is an nounced that fresh regiment are now on the way from Harbiu to quell the mutiny. It is not believed that any of the foreign residents have been killed. St, Petersburg, Nov. I4 The upheaval in Russia following the promulgation of the reform mani festo has now reached Vladivostok and Yeniseisk and other extreme points of the empire. Confirmation has been obtained from various sources of the reported uprising at Vladivostok, where the condition of affairs is critical. Many persons have been killed and the foreigners have taken lefuge on the ships in the harbor. Many public build ings, stores and houses have been pillaged and set fire to by the mob. The American Embassy has re ceived from Consul Greener at Vlad ivostok details of the outbreak, which began Sunday afternoon im mediately after the departure of the Russian armored cruisers Gromo boi and Rossia. The people, who had gathered in great crowds in the streets, became excited by inflam matory speeches. Many soldiers and sailors were also in an angry mood, having expected to go home with the squadron. The mob began to break windows and pillage, and iu the evening set fire to the theatre, the Golden Horn Hotel, to several blocks of Chinese buildings in the northern part of the city, and to the officers' resi dences and other buildings in the eastern quarter. . The firs burned all night. Seventy buildings were consumed. Troops were summoned to restore order and fired five vol leys, killing many persons. I Mr. Greener added that 24 mer chant vessels in tne car Dor were now crowded with inhabitants. The consul was on board a steamer when he sent his dispatch and expects to remain there. Bucharest. Nov. 15. Advices re ceived late last night from Bassara bia tell of terrible massacres of the Jews through out all of that section. The number of killed and wounded number thousands. . Not in many years have such tales ot terrible out rages reached here, and the feeling is general that every Jew in thedis trict will be killed before the month is out unless they are - furnished with funds to nee the country at once. At Danutzeri all of the houses iu the Jewish quarter were demolish ed, the men murdered and the .wo men outraged, afterwards being put to death. The leaders of the Jews and the rabbis were soaked with petroleum and burned to death in the streets in the presence of the enormous multitude. St. Petersburg, Nov. 15. Minis ter of Marine Admiral Birileff, it is reported upon excellent authority, has sent to the commander of the navy atKronstadt to have all who farticipited in the recent mutiny executed, if possible The sailors have sent word that for every one of their number killed they will sboot an officer, beginning with the minister " of the marine himself. St. Petersburg, Nov.' l4.---In view of the condemnation to death of many of the sailors who mutini ed at Kronst&dt, the delay in cariy ing out the reforms outlined in the imperial manifesto, the proclama tion of martial law in Poland and other repressive acts, the council of workmen's delegates has decided to proclaim a general, strike through out Ruseia today. ." ' YeniEeiek, Siberia, Nov. i4. The troops here were forced to in tervene today and scat' er a mob which was attacking the treasury, the police station and the residence of the, rich. The scarcity of food was one of the causes of the outbreak. Washington, Nov. 15. The long standing judgship controversy in Oregon will be settled within the next few weeks. It Eeems certain that the appointment will not be deferred beyond the first week in December, and it may be announc ed earlier. The department of justice, which has been in no hurry about filling the vacancy, is now of opinion that the appointment should be made, for jintil a judge is appointed it BINCER HERMANN GOVERNMENT DECIDES THAT HE WILL HAVE TO AN SWER PORTLAND IN DICTMENTS FIRST. District of Columbia Indictments Will Have to Wait Until Post al Fraud Cages Are Con cluded Three Cases Against Hermann. Washington, Nov. 14. It has been decided by the government to try Congressman Binger Herman firtt under the indictments brought against him ia Oregon. No speci fic date has been Bet for the trial, which will take nlace in Portland, but it is thought by Secretary Hitch cock and District-Attorney Francis J. Heney that the trial will be set during the early part of December. It was at first contemplated to try Hermann in Washington under tbe indictment found againet him alleging destruction of government records. The local district attorney however, has sev ral cases on hand growing out of the alleged frauds in the post ffice, which have prece dence, and mus,t b heard before Hermann's case can bs reached. So it has been decided to try Hermann under the Oregon indictments first. Attorney Hecey will leave Wash ington the latter part of the week for Portland. Three indictments are pending against Congressman Binger Her mann in this state. The sudden decision of Secretary Hitchcock and the department of j astice to bring the Oregon indictments to tri, I in advance of that found in the Die- STUDENT BUILDING. will be difficult to resume the land fraud trials at Po-tland. Judge Hunt is fully occupied in Montana and cannot conveniently return to Portland, and Judge De Haven is just as busi at San Francisco. No federal judges can be spared at this time to conduct trials iu Portland, and for this reason the department of justice is anxious that the vacan cy shall be filled. But .President Uoosevelt promis ed to make no apoeintment uotil Senator Fulton's return to Wash ington, and this promise will carry the appointment over until next week. A? soon as Mr. Fulton ar rives, he will go over the question with tbe president and the attorney general, and it is likely that a se lection will promptly ba made, ev en though the actual appointment may be deferred until congress con venes, to obviate the necessity of making two appointments. When Mr. Fulton was here, the first of the month, it was announc ed by department officials that no selection had been made, and it was repeatedly declared that the presi dent nad not determined upon any particular man for judge. As far aB known the attorney-general has not withdrawn his strong indorse mnent of Judge Bean, of Salem, nor has Mr. Fulton withdrawn his support of Judge McBrlde. At the same time, other influences have been at work in bebalf of other can didates, Judge Wolverton being particularly mentioned. But in spite of what has transpired, it is still declared that the president has made no seleotiou and will not make a choice until he has consult ed Mr. Fulton and Mr. Moody. for his services in expediting the patenting of fraudulent claims. Tha other defendants besides Hermann are Senator Mitchell, S. A. D. Pa ter, Horace G. McKinley, Emma L. Watson, Din Tarpley, E. K. Brown, Mrs. Nellie Brown, Henry A. Young, Frank H. Waigamot, Clark E. Loomis and S. B. Ormsby. All of the defendants are alleged to have been parties to a conspiracy to defraud the government of its lands and tbe indictment sets forth the alleged payment of $2000 by Puter to Senator Mitchell at Washington on March 9, 1902. As District Attorney Heney will leave Washington by the end of this week he may be here next week, though he may go first to Sin Fran cisco. In any event it would seem certain that the first trial of Con gressman Hermann will begin be fore the holidays.

Sold by Graham s .VVortliam. 1 trict of Columbia will .cause some ,surprise, as it was Deiievea in ma ny quarters that Hermann would be tried first at Washington. Tbe three indictments pending in this state are known respectfully as the "Butte Creek Case," the "Blue Mountain conspiracy" and the "11-7 case." In the first nam ed Congressman Hermann wa? in dicted jointly W. W. C.tLvci', Franklin Pierce Mays, Edwin Mays, Joho H. Hall, C. E. Loomis, H. H. Hendricks and others, on tbe charge of fencing government lands. It is generally supposed that this case will not be the first one to be tried, though District Attorney He ney has as yet given no indication as to the order of trials. The Blue Mountain case is one of the most famous of all the indict ments returned in the course of the Oregon land fraud investigations. Senator John H. Mitchell, Con gressman Hermann, Congressman Williamson, State Senator F. P. Mays, Willard-N. Jones and George Sorenson were indicted on the charge of conspiring to defraud the government of 200,000 acres of land within the boundaries of the Blue Mountain forest reserve. The in dictment alleges that the fraud was to Jje accomplished largely by means of fraudulent purchases of state school lands in Crook, Grant, Harney, Malheur, Baker, Union, Umatilla and Wallowa counties, such la-nds found within the bound aries of the proposed reserve. In cidentally the case involves the o erations of the ring which was rob bing the state of its school lands by means of torged applications and dummy applicants. The third indictments in which Congressman Hermann is named as a defendant has to do with the transactions of the Puter ring in township "11-7," and also brings In ruter s tamous story or tne pay ment of $2000 to Senator Mitchell Seattle, Nov. 15. S. Kampe, preident of the Independent Mining Company of Nome, a well-known Alaska Mining operator, a money lender in SanFrancisco and reputed to be worth $300,000, went to the county jail rather than pay a judg ment of $4oo found against him some years ago. Although he wears much jewelry and many diamonds Kampe did not have no any when he went into court. He said that he qad sold them but did not know to whom. Kampe's salary of $5000 a year from the mining company, he stat ed bad been drawn for. three years in advance. He declared he was penniless, butradmitted he lived at the best hotels. After the hearing, Superior Judge Yakey ordered him to go to jail or furnish $600 bonds for his appearance in court wheu wanted. The judgment is held by W. C. Rutter and is an old one. Kampe was in Seattle after a trip from Nome. Leattle, Nov. 15. A Jury was se cured yesterday in the trial of Bart Conner, alleged land swindler and said to be a member of an organ ized band operating extensively in this city and stat9. The charge against Connor, if proved, will send him to the peni tentiary. Bogus deeds and spuri ous mortgages on land in thia state, Tennessee, Michigan and Wiscon sin figure in the dozen or more transactions in which Connor and his associates are involved. The victims are mostly women. Henry Clough, Secretary of the Odessa University, which has only a paper existence to date, is said to be implicated .and is one of thechief witnesses. Revelations more sen sational than those already mads are anticipated as the Conner trial proceeds. New York, Nov. 16. Five per sons were killed, several injured and 50 rescued by the heroic efforts of Firemen in a speclacutar blaza that destroyed a tenement situated at the corner of Seventy-fourth street and Second avenue at 3:30 o'clock this morning.
