Senator Cullom of 111., said he did not

The Northern Pacific Brings Snit Against
G. W. Sunt.
Tacoma. Jan. 22. Suit has been insti
tuted in the superior court by the North
ern Pacific against G. W. Hunt, the
railroad magnate, for the recovery of
$135,000 with interest due upon three
promissory notes. Messrs. Mitchell,
Ashton and Chapman, the attorneys for
the Northern Pacific, in their complaint,
state that the company first loaned $65,
000 on a promissory note made and ex
ecuted and dated April 2, 1889. The
second loan was made on a similar note
of the same date for $34,000. May 1, of
last year, the company advanced him
$20,381. The three notes were payable
on demand. The attorneys of the com
pany state that they know nothing about
the matter at present. They recieved
instructions from the headquarters of
the road in St. Paul to file the suit and
thus place it on record. .Hunt does not
own any property in this city, nor in
Pierce county, but he has extensive pos
sessions in the eastern part of the state.
Considered as Evidence That Hunt has
Made his Loan.
Centbaua, Wash'., Jan. 22. Thesher
iff of Lewis county today served a writ
of attachment on Hunt's grade within
the county and his stores of iron here at
the instance of the .Northern Pacific.
The amount involved is $135,000
and is believed to be the outcome of
some old unsettled matter. The matter
is regarded here as evidence that Hunt
has secured his loan, and that the pros
pect of an early completion has stirred
np the jealousy of his formidable rival
for the Gray's harbor trade.

Washington, Jan. 22. Representa

Farmers' Alliance, the National Farm
ers' Alliance, the Farmers' Union and
Citizens' Alliance began a meeting here
to-day in accordance with the mstrue

agreement - looking to a confederation
was drawn up. It provides for a joint
committee of five from each organization
to represent the confederation. The St.
Louis platform shall be the basis.
Each shall stand pledged to assist, when
possible, in all local efforts to better the
condition of the people. A joint com

Suffering In Chicago of Laborers Wait
Ing for World's Fair Work.
Chicago, Jan. 22. Delay in begin
n ing work on the world's fair grounds
and buildings is causing serious appie
hensions hee, bo the city is fairly over
run with men who have drifted in here
under the impression that work would
be plenty. There are 15,000 or 20,000
men unemployed here now; of whom at
least 5.000 aie comparatively recent ar
rivals. Chief of Police Marsh is receiv
in?? comnlaints almost daily that the
citv is ove.un with unemployed men
The disappointment of most of the un
employed is great, when they are brought
to realize that not even a posthole has
yet been made nor the sod turned, and
nobody has even the faintest idea when
there will be. The result of it is that !
thousands of men and their families are
starving, and, though willing to work,
can't get it. Chief Marsh says the situa
tion is a serious one, and the authorities
are asked to do something to relieve tne
suffering which is so prevalent.
Fears of Violence at Glasgow.
London, Jan. 22. Although the
Scotch railway strike is over, as far as
any delay to business of the company is
concerned, it is not over as to the strik
ers. It has left in several Scotch cities,
and especially in Glasgow, a throng of
discontented and desperate men, , who
may at any time break out into some
striking act of lawlessness. There is no
more dangerous mob than a Scottish mob,
as the history of Scotland has shown.
It is slow to begin, but sudden and res
olute in action. As to whether the
wharf strikers had anything to do with
the explosion of the two gasometers last
Thursday in Glapgow, there is no means
of ascertaining, but it is understood that
the Glasgow police are looking among
the unemployed and desperates of the
city for a clue to the cause of the dis
ester. The explosion went far toward
leaving the city iu darkness, which
would?have eminently favored a lawless

The Okanogan Trouble Over and a Blow-

Spokane Falls, Jan. 22. The follow
ing dispatch recording the termination
of the late scare in the Okanogan coun
try was received in this city to-day by
Colonel John I. Eocge, from Brigadier-
General A. P. Curry: "I held a council
on the reservation with about seventy
Indians including all the chiefs in this
locality. I have exacted from them
promises to stop dancin or carrying
arms except when hunting, and to stop
making threats against the men they
suppose took part in in the hanging of.
their, comrade, the (Indian Stephen.
They also promised to assist in ferreting
out the part ies who sell whiskey to the
Indians which is the prime cause of all
the trouble. I am satisfied this confer
ence has done much good, and think
there will be no more trouble at present.
I have been assisted by Father Derange
and Indian Farmer Thomas, who have
been very active in this matter, and
whose services have been of great value.
I will leave for home in the mornirg."

Alabama's Legislature l'rotests.
Montgomery, Ala., Jan. 24. Both

against the passage of the force bill by
A Moving Mountain.
A traveling monntian is found at the
Cascades oithe Columbia. It is a triple
peaked mass of dark brown basalt, six or
eight miles in length where it fronts the
river, and rises to a hightof almost2,000
feet above the water.
That it is in motion is the last thought
which would be likely to suggest itself to
the mind of any one passing it; yet it is
a well established fact that this entire
mountain is moving hIowIv but steadly
down the river, as if it had a deliberate
purpose some time in future to dam the
Columbia and form a great lake from the
Cascades to The Dalles.
The Indian traditions mdicate im
mense movement of the mountains here
abouts, long before white men came to
Oregon, and the early settlers, immi
grants, many of them from New Eng
land, gave the above described mountain
ous ridge tue name or traveling, or slid
ing mountain. In its forward and down
ward movement the forests along the
base of the ridge have become pubmerged
in the river. Large tree stubs can be
seen standing deep in the water on this
shore. The railway engineei-s and track
man find the line of the railroad which
skirts the foot of the mountain is Being
continually, forced out of place. At cer
tain points the roadbed and track har
been pushed eight or ten feet out of line
in course of a few years. Geoligists at
tribute this phenomenon to the fact that
the basalt, which constitutes the bulk of
the mountain, rests on a substratum of
conglomerate, or of soft, sandstone,
which the deep, swift current of the
mighty river is constantly wearing away
or that this softer subrock is of itself
yielding,' at great depths, to the enorm
ous weight of the harder material above.
