to discover the soldiers who participated
in the lynching of the citizen who killed
a fellow soldier at Fort Walla Walla,
Wash., last week. The acting secretary

WOST SEND ARMS.
A San Franciaeo Firm Denies that they
Will Send M munitions of War.
San Francisco, May 9. A statement
to the effect that the steamer Montzerrat
had been engaged by the firm of W. R.
Grace & Co., to transport a cargo of arms
and ammunitions of war from San Fran
cisco to some port in Chili, was denied
this morning by Wm. Halloway who is
connected with the firm. Said he, "Not
so much as a toy pistoL shall be put on
board the vessel. The cargo will consist
of wheat, barley, cracked wheat, potatoes,
wine and hay and nothing else.
Not Anilou to Catch the Itata.
Washington, May 9. It was not ap
parent this morning that the navy de
partment was exercising itself to recap
ture the Chilian steamer Itata. There
is reason to believe that there is some
hope entertained by the government
officials that the Itata did not start at
full .speed for Chili. There is a strong
suspicion that she is lurking somewhere
in the neighborhood of San Diego.
Ought to be Averaged ITp. .
Portland, May 9. The weekly bulle
tin of the Oregon weather bureau shows

in excess of the average of from one to

she has gone outside the heads to test

The Vessel Train Hopes to Catch.
Vancouver, B. C, May 9. The steam

and fourteen hundred ton's cargo. She
carried the first through English mail for
Japan and China, consisting of forty-six

AMOXO THE STBIKKItS.
The Importation of Labor Into the Coke
Regions Still Continues. j
Scottoale, Pa., May 7. The monot- !
ony was broken today by the burning of j
a coal tapple at the mutual plant of the
Frick company, which crippled its oper
ations. The officials charge the strikers !
with starting the fire. Tonight the re- I
port reached here that a deadly explo
sion occurred in the Adelaide shaft, but
this the company denied. The evictions
today were uneventful. The sensational
stories that the new men at Morewood,
who refused to work, were being impris
oned and guarded, was denied by the
officials of the company, and no verifica
tion can be had.
.MOKE FOREIGNERS ARRIVE.
Great numbers of foreigners, princi
pally Italians, continue to arrive every
day. It' is estimated there are nearly
4000 men working in the different; plants.
The strikers, however, still insist they
will win. The operators say they were
unwilling to use the last and most
deadly weapon against the strikers,
labor importation, but that once begun
they will carry it through, and unless
they return to work it looks as if the 14,
000 "men, still idle in the region, will be
forced from their work, homes, and even
the region. The aggregate loss of the
strike is estimated beween $2,500,000 and
$3,000,000 so far.
Said to be the Mainstay of the Insur
gents Against the ChilianlGoTerninent.
San Francisco, May 7. Senor F.
Cassanova, a former Chilian consul, said
It will be found that British monev is
the mainstay of the insurgents against
our government. The British wants to
fain control of the nitrate deposits, and
'resident Balmaeeda wishes them to be
worked for the benefit of Chilis
This statement is probably correct, so
far as the supply of money is concerned,
as advices received from San Diego yes
terday are to the effect that the money
used to purchase coal and provisions by
the captain of the Itata was obtained
from a local bank on presentation of
letters of credit on a London firm.
These documents were issued by the
Bank of London and Tarap&ca, limited,
an institution in which Colonel North,
the British nitrate king, is the principal
Advance Has Been Made as Tet In
the Rates 1'pon Wheat Cargoes.
San Francisco, May 7. The proposed
combination of English marine insurance
companies to raise rate? on wheat cargoes,
as, mentioned recently in these dispatches
has not been accomplished as yet. Sev
eral of the shippers have refused
to accede to the demands of the com
panies, which were active in the forma
tion of the pool. Yesterday's meeting
of all the English insurance companies
was held to settle matters, but the ship
pers flatly refused to concede the point.
The underwriters had not sufficient Dack
bone to push matters, and the shippers
had not sufficient consideration for their
opponents, so it was finally decided Vt
refer the mat ter to the home officers and
let them settle it to suit themselves.
Will Surpass the. Paris Exposition.
San Francisco, May 7. In regard to
the progress made and the- outlook for
the world's fair M. H. De Young speaks
in a most enthusiastic wav, and compar
ing it with the Paris exposition, which
he attended as one of the official repre
sentatives from the United States, ex
presses the view that it will surpass in
magnitude and beauty that of the French
ine r'aris exposition, he said, was-
the grandest thing ever seen up to that
time, but it will be so far surpassed that
no comparison can be attempted."
After describing the plans for buildings
and for the beautiiying of the exposition
grounds, he declared that when the peo
ple of the United States once were able
to study and comprehend the sxope of
the American exposition, they would
join in the enthusiasm felt by the com
missioners, and every American attend
ing the exposition could not but have
an increased pride in his nationality and
Secretary Blaine a Busy Man.
Washington, May 7. There is a vast
accumulation of matters - requiring at
tention from the state department just
now and Secretary Blaine will probably
be a very.busy man during the summer.
Recent events in the Chilian situation
have added to the complexity of affairs,
and there is now a long docket of un
solved diplomatic problems, as follows :
Italian and Behring sea complications ;
Canadian reciprocity ; Newfoundland
fisheries negotiations ; Chilian troubles ;
Spanish agreement; Venezuela treaty;
Haytian coaling station ; refusal of China
to receive our minister; trouble over the
failure of the consul at Victoria to toast
the qaeen, and quite a number of minor
matters, including the claim of the Bar
rundia family. o-
- The Charleston Ordered In Pursuit.
San Francisco, May 7. The Alta
California has positive information that
the United States ship Charleston will
sail for San Diego tomorrow in pursuit
of the Chilian ship Itata. Secretary
Tracy telegraphed special orders and the
Charleston left Mare Island today, and
anchored off San Francisco. Instead of
taking her usual anchorage, she went
behind Goat island, out of siht. Her
ostensible purpose in coming down is to
go outside and trv her euns. The officers
and men have been ordered to be on
board at 8 o clock tomorrow morning.

WASHINGTON CMVERSITV MltDDLE.
A Commissioner Will Go East to straight
en out the Affairs.
Olykpia, May 7.-John Arthur, an at
torney of Seattle, and one of the building
commissioners of the state university,
will leave for Washington city in a few
days to look over all of the papers hav
ing reference to the land grant of tho
university, which are on file in the gen
eral land office of the government. It
is now said that many of the sales of
university land made by Bagley, one oi
the earlier regents, are null and void,
inasmuch as thev were made after Bag
ley had ceased to be a regent If this is
the case, it will affect the title to consid
erable land in King county. Mr. Arthur
is familiar with the routine work in the
government departments. He held a
responsible position some years ago in
the department of justice in Washington
city. There is still outstanding upwards
of $2000 in notes due the university by
citizens of King county. Mr. Arthur
will endeavor to straighten out the land
matters and give the exact status of the
-Citizen Train. at His Starting Point.

to demonstrate that this city is the
nearest to Asiatic markets.
JOHNATHAJt BOURNE OF POKTLND.

Boston. Mass., May. 9. A case has
been brought against John Stetson, pro
prietor of the Globe theatre here by

is to recover $4S,000, three times the
amount alleged to have been lost by
Jonathan Bourne, Jr., of Portland, Or.,

Stetson. Stetson denies that he ever
received any money from Bourne in
gambling and says the money paid
him in question was for a stock trans
action. SHE TALKER TOO MUCH."

How the Russian czar must feel when
he reads of the president's 9,000 mile
tour through the country without a single
soldier, guard, or even a policeman, just
the same as any private citizen, and with,
no more liklihood of danger than any
other traveler ! But it is only in this
country that such a sight is possible.
