First Tragedy of the Coal
OCCURRED IN SHENANDOAH
Posse Opened Fire on a Mob,
Troops "Were Ordered fcOHt ay the
Governor .and Are On the Way
to the Scene.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept 21. The trag
edy that has ..been looked for since the
coal-workers' strike begun came suddenly
and unexpectedly at Shenandoah this aft
erseen. A posse, hurriedly gathered by
JKeriff Toole, of Schuylkill County, to
meet an emergency, was forced to Are on
a mob that was threatening' workmen
on their way home under escort. A man
and a little girl were Instantly killed
and several others fell more or less
wounded. Sheriff Toole lost no tune In
calling on the National Guard General "to '
send troops to aid him. After a consul
tation, the authorities decided to send
troops to the turbulent region tonight.
Shenandoah's trouble was precipitated
by the closing ,of six collieries there this J
morning through the efforts of strike
leaders. More will close tomorrow as a
voluntary act, it Is said, on the part of j
the Reading Company. This is done at
the request of Sheriff Toole, who hopes
In this manner to avoid further rioting.
The outlook at midnight, however, is du
bious," as the foreigners are in an ugly
mood after the daysv happenings.
Elsewhere the situation Is quiet, but
people are looking for an outbreak In
the Hazleton -dls'.rlct, and armed Sheriffs
deputies are. much in evidence there...

James and William Mitchell, of- Indian
Rldse Colliery, at 320 o'clock this after
noon were returning home from work
when they were met at th,e Lehigh Valley
station by a mob '"with sticks and stones.
The mine- officials drew revolvers and
fired. The mob became furious, after
one qf . ijs number -was shot, and at
tempted to close In on the officials. They
ran up Lloyd street to O'Harra's stable,
where they were Imprisoned for two
hours. ' The mob threatened to burn the
stable, and Sheriff Toole, with 25 depu-
ties, arrived and dispersed them, and the
mine officials went to their homes.
The Sheriff, took the posse to Indian
Ridge Colliery and-escorted some work
men up Centre street As they again
neared the Lehigh Valley station the men
hurled stones at the deputies and a shot
was also fired from a saloon. The dep
uties then opened fire. They hastened
tErward May street, in the meantime fir
ing over 500 shots, and the mob hurling
missiles of all kinds: One man and a
little girl were found lying dead after
the shooting. The crowd was finally dls-
persed and the Sheriff and the deputies'
retired fo the Ferguson House, the-most
prominent hotel, in Shenandoah. During1
the riot windows were broken, buildings
wrecked and a number of persons were

and more trouble Is feared unless the mil

Up to a late hour the Hungarian that
was killed -was permitted to Ho In fche '

this class say a dead man is of noyufie
and they refuse to care for the remains.
The Shenandoah Council held a meeting
and passed resolutions, calling on . tho
Governor for relief. They also desired to
enforce martial law. The Marshal was
'sent out to order saloons closed, and the
proprietors are to keep them closed. The
stores- were also ordered to prohibit the
stale of firearms and ammunition. The
Council also swore in the members of the.
fire companies and other citizens p aid
in keeping order.

the prow, with Assistant Engineer David
B. Ogden, Mra.' Ogden and' an, Oregonlan
representative on board, approached the
look, and, the whistle having given the
long and short blastsi prescribed in the
Government rules and 'regulations, passed
through the gates Into the basin.
The lower gates were closed and the
culverts at the upper'.end of the 'basin
opened. The basin filled rapidly and in
side of 10 minutes "the launch had passed
out of the lock and was speeding away
up the- river to McMinnville. .
The "ride was a delightful one,, the
water like a sheet of glass and the sun
shining brightly. The closing of the' lock
RIVER LOOKING DOWN STREAM.
had raised the water some 16 feet at that
jPoInt, and four teet at McMinnville, and
the river between these two points pre
sented a, very peculiar appearance. It
was not that the brush grew down to
the water's edge, but the water had sub
merged the brush so far that it extended
many feet from the shore, and it was
almost Impossible to tell where the land
and the water met. The high, tree-clad
banks od either side and the blue sky
were mirrored in the depths till one
could almost Imagine that the launch was
sailing on the air among the tree tops.
The distance by river from the lock
to McMinnville, owing to the windings
"of the stream, is about 10 miles, twice
as far as by land. Owing to the high
banks nothing of the surrounding coun
try could be seen, and the launch seemed
to be making a voyage on unknown wat
ers. A shingle, rigged with a mast and
sail, launched by some youthful-, Yam
hlller, and a. plank manned by a turtle,
floating lazlljr In the sun, were the only
craft met on the trip, and the only signs
of life were a flock of wild ducks
scuttling around the the bends ahead, a
muskrat swimming across the stream,
and occasionally sheep and pigs feeding
on the top3 of the banks.
McMinnville was reached a few minutes
before the train for Portland came along,
and after receivfng a hearty greeting
from and exchanging congratulations
with a number ot prominent citizens,
who were waiting to welcome the first
boat through the lock. Captain Langfitt
and The Oregonlan representative board
ed the train for home.
Assistant Engineer Ogden, who has. su
perintended the construction of the dam
and Jock, and has been connected with
-the work since the first pencil was put to
vthe pians some Ave years ago, and who
was feeling very happy over the success
ful completion of the work, returned to
the lock with the launch, to see to the
final closing up and getting tjverythlng
in shape for the Government taking over
the work from the contractors, Messrs.
Normlle, Fastaband & McGregor, which
will be done on 'October 1, when the lock
will be formally opened for navigation.
The citizens of McMinnville will celebrate
the completion of the lock next Friday,
on which occasion there will be an excur

GERMANS NOT AGAINST THE PARTY
No Disastrous Rearalts Feared Front
Imperialism Campaism Issues in.
the Several States.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 31. Recent re
ports received at Republican headquar
ters In this city picture brilliant success
for the Republican party in Maryland,
Nebraska and Kentucky this Fall. From
each of these states come assurances that
the Germans, as a class, are not arrayed
against Republicanism, and take no stock
in the false cry of "Imperialism." On
the other hand, they are, as a rule. Arm
believers in the policy of expansion, aa
advanced by the present Administration,
and are good sound-money men.
The Democrats are straining every
nerve to make "imperialism" the "rara
mount" Issue in Maryland, and are bank
ing much on the effect of Wellington's
flop, and the following he will take with
him into the Democratic camp. It Is gen
erally believed, however, that the votew
who will follow Wellington will be but
a very small portion of those who voted
the Republican ticket four years ago.
Republicans of that state do not fear any
disastrous effects from the Democratic
campaign on the basis of "Imperialism.'
In Kentucky National Issues do not
seem to hold the boards. There. Goebel
ism Is without doubt the "paramount Is
sue." and In fact practically the only is
sue. It is declared that until the election
methods of that state have been perma
nently Improved, National Issues will be
of little moment. The talk about a con
spiracy among the Republican leaders to
assassinate Mr. Goebel Is not credited,
but has helped rather than Injured tha
Republican cause. All In all, the Re
publicans probably have the best of the
Goebel situation in the state, especially
in view of the conviction of Powers,
which does not meet with popular ap
proval. Kentucky Republicans expect to
elect a Republican Governor, and give
the electoral vote of the state to Mc
Klnley, as they hae no fears now but
what a fair count will be had.
Reports from Nebraska say that tha
best Democrats, those who are not out
for office, are going to vote for McKln
ley. Nebraska needs an average of about
three and a half converts from each elec
tion district, and some Republicans esti
mate that hey have all the way from
five to 21 in a precinct. A red-hot cam
paign In that state from now on until
election Is assured, and if that is all thac
is necessary, as generally believed, Bry
an will be defeated in his own state.
Aside from giving the electoral vote to
McKinley, Nebraska Republicans expect
to carry the Legislature, which means
the erection of two United States Sena
tors and sending Republicans to Con
gress from.,every district save one.
