dent today made the following ap
pointments in Oregon:
To be United states district at

at Roseburg Benjamin L. Eddy,
of Tillamook, Or., vice Joseph T.
To be receiver of public moneys
at Rosebnrg James M. Lawrence,
of Bend, Or., vice James H. Booth,,
Mr. Heney 's resignation is the
result of the conclusion of his work
in investigating the land frauds,' on
which he has been engaged as dis
trict attorney since he superseded
John H. Hall to facilitate ' his in
veetigatioD. Mf. Hall 'was sum
marily removed.' Mr. Heney took
charge of the office a few days later,
and- has bad charge of the investi
gations - and ' prosecutions which
haveledNitp to the numerous J land
cases in the courts of that state. Mr.
Hall's removal occurred last winter,
following charges of obstruction of
evidence in the late cases. "
Mr.1 Heney was : at the White
House some nights ago with Secre
tary Hitchcock and, it is under
stood, conferred with the president
regarding the changes as well as on

tigations. Receiver Booth was indicted last
summer for alleged participation in
The appointment of W. C. Bristol
as United States dietrict attorney
and J. M. Lawrence as receiver of
the land office at Roseburg, is the
result of the crisis which has been
pending between President Roose
velt and Secretary Hitchcock, on
the one hand, and Senator Fulton
on the other. The news contained
in the foregoing Washington dis
patch was received at Portland
shortly before 11 P. M., and was
evidently given out to th Associat
ed Press direct from the White
House by the President's secretary,
instead of following the ordinary
routine of announcing appointments
from the departments the following
rooming, it is possible that the
appointments were the result of a
night s conference.

St. Petersburg, Dec. 1.- It is re
ported here thai one of the grand
dukes plotted to arrest the czar at
Tsorskoe-Selo, his object being to
proclaim himself "dictator, relyin
on bis promises to complete reform
to secure the support of the social
ists and working men.' .':.-.
Owing to the discretion of one of
tbe grand duke's agents, the plot!
was disclosed to one of the czar's
aid-de-camps, who promptly order
ed the arrest of 20,( officers and 25
men in various regiments.
The discovery of : this plot has
caused great consternation in court
circles, more than any revolutiona
ry movement throughout the em
pire. ; .

confidence can be placed even in
the guard regiments. Arrested sol
diers are seen every day, escorted
by comrades with drawn swords.

CITY OF MOSCOW
Forest Grove, Or., Dec. 2. A
wrecked and empty vault, with sur
rounding floor piled with debris,
greeted the officers of the Farmers'
& Mechanics' bank of this city, when
they appeared for duty at that in
stitution this morniDg.- Investiga
tion showed that , the robbers had
made a complete haul, not a cent
being left. "The sum of $6,000 Is
said to have . been secured. The
burglary was committed between 1
and 2 o'clock this morning. En
trance was gained through the front
door of the office, which bad been
broken open with a crowbar. The
robbers then dug out the left side
of the back vault, which was com
posed of brick, making a hole about
the size of a small washtub, giving
access to the safe within. This had
been appsrantly surrounded with
nitroglycerine, and the charge blew
the safe almost to pieces. .
Between 1 arid 2 o'clock
morning people living near
building heard the reports
thought they emanated from
office of the News Printing
pany and no at'tention was given to
them. Mrs. D. Parsons beard the
noise made by the pick used in dig
ging the wall an ay from the safe,
as it struck tbe brick, but thinking
it was the patter of rain on tin gut
ters nearby gave no farther thought
to it. ; . ..
The sledgehammer and some of
tbe other tools have been identified
by a local blacksmith. The pick
bears the label "Section 64' and
the crowbar is marked "S. P."
The robbed institution is- operat
ed by R: M. Dooley. While the
exact amount stolen is not made
known the rumors afloat place-it at
$6,ooo. The- depositors will lose
nothing, as the bank is covered ful
ly with insurance. Sheriff Connell
is here and with1 local ' authority is
making every effort to locate the
burglars. No clues are to be found
so far, as the robbers left 1 absolute

Warsaw, Poland, Dec. 3. A rail
Way telegraph dispatch just receiv
ed here from Moscow states that a
great incendiary fire is raging there
and that already hundreds of build
ings have been destroyed.
A few seconds after this informa
tion bad been received here, the
wife failed, so that no particulars
could be ascertained.
Berlin, Dec. 2. The Imperial
Telegraph .department announces
that the only Russian point still
accessible by wire is Kieff. Com
munication with St. Petersburg via
Copenhagen has been interrupted
since tms morning. Messages via
Eydtluhlen continue to be forward
ed from there by mail.
Paris, Dec. 3. The Journal this
morning publishes a St. Petersburg
dispatch, : which '.was' carried to
Eydtkuhnen (Eastern Prussia) by
courier, which repeats the recent
reports relative to a violent scene
in. tbe palace at TsarskoeSelo.
'. The. Journal says' that the trouble
was" between ' Emperor Nicholas
and Grand Duke Vladimir,' and
was relative to Grand Duke Cyril.
The paper adds:
"It is oeitain that something ex
traordinary occurred ( there besides
the disaffection of the guard, and
that the whole domestic staff at the
palace is now preparing to strike.
Warsaw, Dec. 2. As tbe effect
ot tne czar s edict suspending mar
tial law throughout Poland, alLpa
trolsof troops have disappeared
f.om the streets, although dragoons
are still in reserve in the oourtyards
and police stations. Here in War
saw conditions are very quiet on
the surface, although there is no
certainty that they will long remain
so, as the revolutionists are inclin
ed to hold meetings, at which the
most incendiary speeches are made
and the people urged to rise against
tbe czar. "
Nearly every Russian establish
ment and public structure in South
ern Poland has been damaged by
stones thrown through the windows
while town pictures of the czar have
been stolen and publicly burned by
the ,,reds." -
The reservists at Sembro, in the
province of Lomza, revolted and de
manded that they be returned to
their homes, declaring that they
would no longer act as police. The
battalions of infantry were sent to
suppress the trouble, but the officer
in command, after approaching tbe
barracks, marched his men back
and told the colonel of the regi
ment that the men would not 'fire
on their comrades in the service.
Disorders are reported among, the
troops at the fortress at Ossowice,
but no details are available. - . .
The fact that tbe. postal - system
is demoralized 'and the-, operators
are on Btrike makes it impossible to
learn how matters are going outside
of the city. While the; experts ; of
the signal cor ps have been, detailed
to take 'the places - of the striking
telegraph operators,' they, refuse to
handle anything but official - mes
sages, and even these are refused
when they refer to rioting.
: It is reported upon the - best au
thority that revolutionists are ship
ping bombs into the country from
the Austrian frontier and. are arm
ing all of their members,! so tbey

Through an explosion in mine No.
1 of the Kemmerer Coal & Coke Co.,
at Diamondville, in Western Wy
oming, shortly after midnight, 21
men are known to have lost their
lives and 33 others are entombed.
Relief parties are working heroic
ally to reach the entombed men be
fore the after damp claims them.
The scene about the mouth of the
shaft beggars description, wives,
mothers, sisters and brothers being
frantic in their appeals to . the res
cuers to bring cut their loved ones.
Many workmen near the entrance
to the mine were injured by flying
debris and a large force of physi
cians is attending them. The cause
of the disaster is unknown.
It is reported that the mine is
burning and that there is little hope
of saving those entombed. Rescue
gangs are making slow headway on
account of gas and fire. Many . of
the dead ate Americans.
The explosion, it appears, was
caused by a "windy" shot.
Four years ago '62 miners were
lost in this mine and their bodies
buried for wteks.
Five bodies were taken out by
noon today. All five are those of
Englishmen who came here recent
ly from England.
The full shift was . not at work.
Immediately following, the explor

The vicinity was illuminated for ; a
quarter of a mile, then darkness and
great clouds of.smoke followed. ,
In less than half an hour rescue
gangs had been organized and start
ed to work - systematically. The
men working on the surface near
the shaft were badly injured. - and
given the first relief. As daylight
approached the rescuers were able
to work to better advantage. Slow
