OCCURRED IN SHENANDOAH Posse Opened Fire on a Mob, Killing Twolfersons. OVER 500,. SHOTS WERE FIRED 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...

Superintendent Adam Boyd,' Inside fore man, for the railway, and Breaker Bosses 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 injured. Sheriff Toole telephoned to Harrisburg and asked that a detachment of troops be sent here. It was learned that Aa- jutant-General Stewart was 'In Philadel phia ana a, Ksienruju was txsnt iv iiiiii there. l Following Is a list of the killed: . Mike Yukavage, shot in the eye.

To night it (ls raining and the mob has scattered. , , Up to a late hour the Hungarian that was killed -was permitted to Ho In fche ' gutter where he dropped. Foreigners bf 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.

TH' FIRST BOAT'PASSED THROUGH Captain Langfltt, V. S. Engineers, Pi lots His Lasnch Up the River to McMinnville. The dam and lock built by the Govern ment in the Yamhill River at an ex pense of about $70,000 to extend steamboat navigation to McMinnville has been com pleted and a long-cherished dream of the" people of that town is at last real ized. The structure was inspected and 3Mi'fr v ZR3 THE KEW LOCKS IN THE YAMHD-Ii RIVER EXCAVATING FOR FOUNDA TION OF DAM. informally opened yesterday by Captain W. C. Langfitt, United States Engineers, who has had charge of the work. Every thing worked to perfection, tho lock be ing filled In six and one-half minutes and emptied in three and one-half min utes. A number of residents of the surround ing country, men, women and children, were present to witness the passage of the first steamer through the lock and watched the proceeding with great In terest.

M the Engineers' launch, Captain Langfitt at the wheel, the Stars and Stripes flying, from the stern and the ,Unlted States Engineers' flag bearing the trlpleTtowered castle at 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 "Z . 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 sion on some steamer from Portland to that town.

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. r OTS 'TE-m-raDRAWNf National 'Pitriy Cannot Find Snbsti tntea torCaffery and Ho-tre.
