Th-telegraokfrs' strike has affected the newspapers and
every Associated Press operator in the country went out last
night at 7:j$f or shortly before, This action by this branch of
operators leaves the newspapers without any means of gath
ering the news of the world and they must depend upon local
news for supplying the public with reading, The strike in
cludes only commercial operators, and the railroads are not
affected, However, there are numerous oilier operators that
may yet go out, such as brokers' men and those who work on
private leased wires, There is no telling how long the condi
tion will continue, but The Times' readers can have this con
solation; they will get the outside news as soon as any of the
In the local field, the strike is a one man affair, Will Malloy
being the only union operator in the city, He was called out
ct 7:30, and he will leave this morning for Portland, where he
will observe the strike from a union man's standpoint, Malloy
would' as well be in Portland as in Marshfield so far as service
is concerned, as there are no operators working, and there is
noinmgio receive, -....
In connection with the strike, a slam Is-told on Ottd Schetter,
who is interested in the line from here to Roseburg, He Was
tiying to talk to Portland early-last night and the operator at
the other end called him a scab, What he answered is another
story, but he believes it is a peculiar country where'a man can't
telegraph over his own line without being insulted,
Malloy gave The Times some information respecting the
strike which he caught on the wires yesterday before the strike
was called, The plan for the general strike was to have it com
mence at nine o'clock today, but the telegraph companies got
wise to the proposed walkout and commenced to discharge
men here an3 there, and this precipitated the general walkout
about fifteen hours before it was scheduled,
Oakland went out yesterday at 2i30,
Spokane and Seattle operators quit early yesterday after
noon, refusing to work with Helena operators who' were not
Portland was tied up at about 7:20 last night, both Postal
and Western'Union operators going out.
New York has 4,000 operators idle, and business is prac
tically tied up there.
The following telegrams were received by Malloy yesterday
before the full force of the trouble was felt:

Chicago, Aug. 12. Both Western

"Western Union claimed more than

the season. By winning over Marsh

this year's pennant, and tho Coqullle
boys were accordingly elated at their
success. There remain two more
games to play before tho season
The great Interest from now on

place between North Bend and
Marshfield. Marshfield has a game

but the neighbors feel confident of

Marshfield vs. Coqullle.
Both pitchers were at their best,
and the game bad the appearance of
a close contest from the opening
shot. Marshfield went out in one,
two, three order for three Innings,
and Coqullle for two. Not a score
was recordod until the fifth inning,

when Coqullle bunched four hits af
ter an error had been made in right
field and ran In three counts. Marsh
field had men on bases in the fourth,
sixth, seventh and eighth, and seem
ed likely to score, but the Coqullle
team gathered themselves and saved
the score card clean. The game was
a pitcher's battle, and Wright had
the better of the argument in num
ber of hits. But the leaders bunched
their blngles and thus made them
count, while the Marshfield hits were
scattered. The , strike-outs were
numerous, Collier having twelve and
Wright nine. There was a large
crowd out to see the contest and the
Coqullle backers had plenty of
money to bet on the game. A'ery
little of it was taken, however, and
the Coqullle backers were disap
pointed. Outside the pitching the
jchlef feature was the playing and
batting of Towe.

The game was a pitchers' battle
and North Bend's support wa3 the
poorer, thus giving tho Bandon
players tho game. There were but
two hits scored for Bandon and threo
for North Bond. Gaffney, for North
Bend, played a star game and made
a difficult running catch of a fly ball,
and afterwards distinguished himself
by making a phenomenal stop of a
grounder and throwing his man out
while lying on the ground. North
Bend failed to score, and Bandon
made four runs on errors by tho
homo team. The tabulated score
will be printed tomorrow.

Trouble Spreads and Situation Is
Regarded as More Critical
From Bay to Day.
London, August 11. A special dis
patch from Tangier says the greater
part of Mazugau was destroyed by a
bombardment of Fiench ships, but
the Consulates weie not injured. It
Is reported that during the shelling
of Muzngun, the Moors attacked tho
Jewish quarters of the town and kill
ed many persons.
Paris, August 11. Special "dis
patches from Tangier it-present the
situation as being alarming on the
coast and hi the interior. Caid
Caile, the administrator of customs,
at Rabat, is said to be openly preach
ing a holy war among the Mussul
mans as a result of which the French
Counsiil distributed arms to the
Tangier, August 11. The Angers
tribesman were camping two miles
fiom Tangier at 11:30 tonight. The
European residents, including the
British Minister, Gerard A. Lnwther,
and his family, have left their moun
tain dwelling and returned to the
Advices from Rabat say that the
Raybles havd given the Governor a
fortnight in which to withdraw the
French Controller of Customs. Other
wise they say they will attack .-the
town. .,;. 1 r
London, Augustll. The. horrors
of the looting of lCasa i.Blanca by
native tribemen are becoming known
today, and their recital is inflaming
the minds of the native against- all
Europeans. Yt Is noSv known that for
two days' and nights Arabs looted and
murdered 'In Casa Blanca where the
French vere powerless to protect the
people. Shops and houses were raid
ed, men were -killed In their homes
and on the stl-edt and women wore
The situation In various coast
towii3 is worse. The natives are ex
cited. A holy war Is being preached
at Rabat. Anti-foreign sentiment is
growing as a result of the activities
of fanatical agitators. There Is fear
of a general outbreak. A number of
European families are preparing to
flee from Tangier. The Angera trib
esmen in the Immediate vicinity of
Tangier are restless and may get out
of control. The Moorish authorities
have practlcaly no control of the situ
Blunder Cuuscs Looting.
There are many complaints among
the Europeans that France acted Ill-
advised at Casa Blanca In bombard
ing that town before the Jews and
Europeans there and elsewhere on
the coast and in the Interior.
The- news from Casa Blanca, while
conflicting as to Its situation there to
day, uhitel in showing that the bom
bardment was continued for longer
than was first supposed, and that the
lack of an adequate French force to
afford protection resulted In an op
portunity for barbarlous looting
rapine and pllage, with all the ac
companiment of murder and horror.
The first French landing parties
could not control the situation.
Moorish authority vanished with the
first French gun shot and lawlessness
It Is now reported however, that
between 2,000 and 3,000 French and
Spanish bluejackets aro ashore at
Casa Blanca and that order has been
restored. The Europeans there are
all safe. Tho loss of llfo among the
Moors resulting from tho bombard
ment appears to bo much greater
than was first Indicated.
More Troops Lauded,
France and Spain, tho two powers
responsible for tho maintenance of
order, are sending In re-onforcoments
and cruisers and transports aro pro
ceeding with ull speed for Casa
Blanca and other coast points.
Franoo, In order to restoro security
and order, may be forced to occupy a
munber of Moorish ports and perhaps
even send a punitive expedition to
Fer. , . .,

Bartender Inteifcres AVifh Oillcer.
Albert Hanson, bartender at tho
Castlowood, was ha'led before Judgo
Upton' yestreday morning and charg
ed with interfering with an oillcer In
discharge of hlo duties. Night Officer
Condron went into tho Castlowood
Sunday night to quiet a crowd who
was making more noise than Cpn
dron thought proper on tho Sabbath.
Hanson made It unpleasant for Con
dron, and the trial wag the result.
Judge Upton, in passing judgment on
Hanson, said it was a common be
lief among Marshfield saloon keepers
that no officer bad authority to enter
a saloon and quell disturbances, but
he would disabuse their minds of tho
noton, and so fined Hanson ten dol
lars and costs, which was paid.
Lost Truck of Himself,
A "holdover" drunk was discover
ed pasturing himself with the cows
and horses In the range between
Sheridan and Broadway early Men
day morning. When first seen he
was chumming with several of the
tamer horses and trying to remem
ber how he camo there and what had
become of an associate he wn? wltb
the previous evening. Ho did not
tell his name, and probably had for
gotten It. Ho said he had been In
tho bay, and his clothes bore out the
statement. But ho had no kick com
ing, since he had obliged his partner
of tho night to Bwlm tho channel near
Marshfield. When ho was shown tho
way out of his unwilling imprison
ment, ho started away, vowing ho
would keep nearer to shore next
week, particularly In tho way of
AViih Short of Funds.
Bud Holland relates an incident
which occurred In tho Nutwood Mon
day morning. From Saturday night
to Monday morning Is a long Upio
with some people, and it often oc
curs that funds aro low, A thiisty
man camo In and after tho usual
greetings, said he would take a drink.
Bud shoved out tho whiskey bottlo
and tho man handed out five two
cent stamps and walked out. Bud
was too badly beaten to make any
remonstrance and allowed the sale
I to stand. .
