GRASS VALLET Or., Aug. 1. (Staff
Correspondence.) In spite of the In
junction Issued In the Circuit Court yes
terday. Porter Bros, today put 75 men.
armed with plckhandles, axhandles and
in a few Instances guns, on guard at
the locked entrance to the Gurtz ranch.
Again Twohy Bros, sent teams to the
front, and again they brought them
back with wagons loaded, but the re
' turn was not made until after one four-
mule freight wagon and a pack train
of three horses bad been forcibly eject
ed from the ranch by the 75 men. The
ejectment was accomplished without
the breaking of any heads or the injury
of any one, by unhitching the mules
from the first wagon through the gate
and the men pulling the wagon out
backward. Owing to being over
whelmed by numbers, the Twohy drtv.
ers had to submit.
Twohy Crew Outnumbered.
It Is the contention of Johnson Por
ter, who arrived on the scene this
morning by automobile from The
Dalles, that there has not been suffi
rlent service of the Injunction to put it
Into force. The Injunction was served
last night on Superintendent Griffin,
who Is the Grass Valley representative
of Porter Bros, and another copy was
also served on the regular gateman at
Griffin Immediately got Into commu
nication with Mr. rorter by telephone,

Each Italian Has Weapon.
The great percentage of Porter Bros.'
force was composed of Italians under
Tony 'Scarpelll. Every man had a
weapon of some kind. The men spent
the hours before daylight dozing before
sagebrush fires, while a few performed
picket duty. They had congregated
outside the ranch fence, but when
Johnson Porter appeared, about 11 A.
M.. he ordered them to "get back on
our own property." The men, there
after kept inside the Inclosure.
Porter went on through to the can
yon, and the automobile returned with
out him. It Is supposed he has re
turned another way to The Dalles to
avoid service of the injunction.
Sheriff Accompanies Teams.
The first of the Twohy outfit to
reach the guarded gate this morning
was a packer riding on a horse and
leading two others laden wlthsupplles
. for the camp of'Englneer Raven. (Thla
packer did not even enter into conver
sation with the men who were grouped
back of the gate on the TJurtz land, but
awaited the arrival of the freighting
The wagons, nine In number, and
each drawn by four mules, arrived at
- the gate in advance of Sheriff Freeman,
Attorney E. V. Llttlefleld and a Deputy
sheriff, who went out In an automobile.
The teamsters halted at the gate and
attempted to "josh" the Italians, but
could get little response. Two other
men connected with the Twohy work
rode out on horseback.
The force of the Harriman contract
ors was only eight or ten. counting the
Sheriff and Deputy Sheriff. Judge Lit
tlefield was the spokesman. He de
manded to know who was boss, of the
crowd, and Carleton stepped forward.
"I supose you are here to try to prevent
our passing over this road?" said Judge

"I have to inform you that an order of
court has been Issued ordering the open

it. I warn rou that I have the Sheriff

"Well." said Carleton. "We are not

instructions are rot to use any violence,

ten-year contract with Seymour to look
after the Fair estate In this city for
$300 a month. Seymour resigned as Chief

Seymour sued and got Judgment twice.
but finally the State Supreme Court

WIRELESS KILLS TERRORS
Warnings Now Save Vessels From
Sable Island's Shores.
OTTAWA, Ont. Aug. 1. (Special.) The
wireless telegraph has robbed Sable Is
land, the "graveyard of the Atlantic,"
of Its terrors. - Lying in the route of nav
igation of the North Atlantic pcean, this
island long ago earned Its dread title.
It Is a drear expanse of surf-beaten
shoals, being strewn thickly with pitiful
wreckage of splendid ships.
Last year, however, no wreck or ma
rine casualty of any bjnd occurred there,
and this remarkable Immunity is attrib
uted mainly to the utilization of wireless
telegraphy In communicating warning
signals to passing vessels.
In the comparatively short period In
which wireless telegraphy has been In
operation in Canada, it bas become one
of the most Important adjuncts to naviga
tion maintained by the Dominion government-
There are at present more than 30
wireless stations In Canada, of which
five are located on the Pacific Coast.
The coast service will soon be aug
mented by three additional stations.

With only four days of the period foJ
application for . registration on the
three Indian reservations left, notaries
and officials of the Land Office are pre
paring for a greater rush, than has been
seen since the work began et midnight
The average of daily applications for
the first 16 days has not been sufficient
to bring the total of applications to the
300,000 predicted for the three reserva
tions by James W. Witten, the superin
tendent of opening. The total received
at Coeur d'Alene is now a little more
A feature of the land rush reported
by the notaries is the class of people
from whom most of the applications
come. Many men and women holding
responsible salaried positions are seiz
ing the opportunity to try for 160 acres
of land on the Indian reservations.
Railroad officials with headquarters In
Chicago, St. Paul, Tacoma, Portland and
Seattle have turned In their names.
School teachers are largely represented,
and small professional men have ap
plied in numbers. The largest portion
of the applicants are men and women
who are living on ani working farms
in the East and Middle West, or who
have left farms and wish to return to
that manner of living.
At Missoula there is"- some one else
besides the notary who is going to
make isomethlng out of the land draw

Every time a landseeker buys a 2-cent
stamp It means an Increase in the total
receipts for the year, and on the total
receipts is based his salary. So far
this month Mr. Ross has seen his, next
year's salary go up $200, and It is still
going. .The salary of the Mlssouia
postmasteY is J3000 now; next year It
will be at least J3200. and probably
more. Mr. Ross says aireaay n is evi
dent that they will have receipts of
more than $50.000.

TIDAL WAVE ADDS MISERY
Farmers Fear to Bring In Produce

Plans Relief Measures Rains
Add Much to ' Discomfort.
MEXICO CITY, Aug. 1. A dispatch
from Acpulco today states that 73 dis.
tinct shocks of earthquake have been
felt there since the first shake Friday.
The city has been destroyed and the In
habitants face a famine. During one of
the shocks a tidal wave engulfed the
harbor and a number of lives were lost.
Chilpancingo also has been practically
destroyed. What the earthquake of Fri
day failed to do was accomplished by
the stronger one Saturday, which either
leveled or rendered uninhabitable every
building in the two places.
No Food Brought to City.
All the markets at Acapulco were de
stroyed in the shocks of Saturday and
the country people are afraid to take in
more produce to the town. People are
camping in the public squares and have
no food. The buildings standing are
being leveled by dynamite, as they are
little more than tottering walls.
Tidal Wave Adds to Misery.
During the heavy shock yesterday the
water in the harbor receded 33 feet and
then rushed back, covering the docks and
piers, causing considerable damage. The
people are suffering from exposure. The
tents in the public squares and streets do
not serve t keep off the heavy rains
that fall at this season of the year..
Funds are being raised in Mexico City
to relieve the distress . of Guerre. In
Mexico City. Saturday the shock as
heavier than any other yet experienced.
So far as known no lives were lost In
the last tremor.
Disastrous Shock Predicted.
Thousands of people are thronging the
streets and plazas tonight, afraid to'enter
their houses and hotels because it is
predicted a quake more severe than any
of the past 48 hours, will occur at 3
o'clock Monday morning. Should the
shock occur. It isv feared it may cause
the eruption of Popocatapetl.
Indians are constantly praying, as they
Insist the catastrophe will be the great
est In .the history of the Republic. Wire
communication has been established with
Iguala, one of the cities from which an
operator flashed the report that the city
had beeri entirely demolished by the
quake Saturday. It Is now reported from
there that a considerable part of the city
was destroyed, but not the entire place.
Thus far no communication has been
established over the federal lines with
Chilpancingo, Chilapa .or Acapulco, and
their fate is unknown here, although it Is
believed the Carnage could not have been
as great as was reported by the terrified
operators as they deserted their keys.

ST. LOUIS, Mo., Aug. 'l. (Special.)
Morris A. Heimann almost went up in a
balloon today. Instead ef actually flying,
he stood on terra tlrma and watched Miss
Julia Hoerner, whom he was to take
for a sail in the clouds and the pilot,
John Berry, soaring above him, as he
shouted for them to wait.
" Just as the balloon "was ready, Miss
Hoerner had a bystander call Heimann
to the telephone. Heimann had just dis
covered the joke and started to return
to the balloon when he heard a shou
and saw the big balloon slowly sailing
over his head, Miss Hoerner waving at
him, while Berry dumped out ballast to
make sure of getting away.
The balloon landed at Barnhart, Mo
29 miles from the starting point at 3
o'clock. The bag dropped in a clover
field, making a safe and easy landing.
Having plenty of gas and ballast left,
Miss Hoerner tied the drag rope to a tree
and made several ascensions in the cap
tive balloon with several natives, who
drawn by curiosity, came to where the
balloon was anchored. m
Incidentally, the runaways took Hel
mann's coat, with them, and in it was all
his money. He walked home. Miss
Hoerner said she . could not resist the
temptation to steal the balloon.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 1. (Special.)-
Following closely on the theft Of Miss
Jennie Crocker's $50,000 pearl necklaceat
the St. Francis Hotel, comes the report
of the disappearance of tlO.OOO of the
hotel's costly silverware. Miss Crocker's
necklace was stolen in the supper-room
on the night of a big ball and no clew
has yet been found. Last week the
checking clerks reported to Manager
Woods the loss of a considerable quan
tity of silver plate in one day.
Woods had an 'nventory taken and the
result showed $10,000 of large and small
articles missing. Detectives placed on
the case have thus far recovered nothing
except a few small pieces secreted by the
Chinese potato peelers. Many of the
missing articles are massive salvers and
serswig dishes which could not be car

ers. It 19 believed a coiene oi expen

that the fortress Montjunich is con

cupied by them.
LONDON. Aug. 1. (Special.) Quick
ly following messages received here
early today that the Spanish troops had
been repulsed In a collision with revo
lutionaries at Barcelona, came a report
that the insurgents in that city had
proclaimed a republic.
Color is lent to the report by other
dispatches emanating from Cerbere on
the Franco-Spanish frontier. These
tell of a continuance of fighting be
tween the troops and revolutionaries 'in
Barcelona, showing the government has
not gained control of the Insurgents,
as censored dispatches stated.
Carlists to Head Rebellion.
Officials of the Spanish government
at' Madrid and other points have con
tended for several days that the rioting
was the work of anarchists and social
ists. These claims are challenged by
message received yesterday from
Barcelona by way of Cerbere, stating:
"Nine thousand armed revolutionaries.
have formed a committee of publlo
safety. A meeting of Carlist leaders
has beei held at Figueras and the ar
rival is expected of the pretender, Don
Jaime de Bourbon, In order to place
himself at the head of the rebellion."
That so large a force Is engaged In
the uprising would seem to Indicate
that malcontents of all classes in Spain
had joined In the movement against
Rebels Shot Without Trial.
With 3000 dead and wounded in Bar
celona, as previously reported, the
government is taking drastic steps to
check the rebellion. In messages Fri
day and Saturday it was stated that .
ten courts were at work trying rebels
who had been captured and persons
suspected of sympathizing with the
movement. Today a message was re
