EXCITEMENT IN BRUSSELS.
Workingmen Determined to Parade
Tronble In Germany.
London, May 13. Today's dispatches
state that great excitement exists in
Brussels. The workingmen are deter
mined to hold their parade in defiance of
the city authorities, and the burgomaster
is equally stubborn. The troops are in
readiness to suppress any outbreak, the
gendarmes having spent all night under
arms. The working people of Ghent are
out in force today, and similar demon
strations are reported in various cities of
Belgium. The troops on the Belgian
frontier adjoining France have captured
a large quantity of circulars, printed, it
is thought, in England. These circulars
appeal to the people to strike a blow for
liberty and not be any longer the slaves
of oligarchy. "
The leaders of the strike at the West
phalia mines, who were put under arrest
when the strike movement began, have
been released without a trial. The mines
are in such a dilapidated condition that
production In large quantities will not be
possible foi several days to come. Gov
ernment inspectors are busy examining
the mines and ascertaining what, if anv,
danger exists. The workingmen of Boch
um not engaged in coal mining have sub
scribed a sum of money for the benefit
of the poor miners who, in the midst of
plenty, are actually starving. The sur
render of the miners is due to this fact.
Dr. B.Rassert, who is charged with the
administration of the mines, is quoted as
saying that the safety of the miners is
here more carefully attended to than in
Germany, which is the reason that the
country is comparitively free from great
mining calamities. .
Indians Will Not Enlist Successor
Elected to the Late Chief.
Pendleton, May 13. The effort to en
list Umatilla Indians in the United
States army 'was a failure. Lieutenant
Hardman left the agency vesterday with
the troopers to return to Fort Sherman.
The Indians say that as their allotments
will soon be made they do not wish to
iniss their chance to secure land by be
coming soldiers. "We want to live on
our land among peaceable people, and
be at peace," said one chief.
chief homily's successor.
The "dead feast" held yesterday bv
Indians on the reservation 'fifteen miles
east of here, in memory of chief Homily,
recently deceased, was" largely attended
both by Indians and whites. Prepara
tions for the feast began at 9 o'clock in
the morning, an immense amount of
food being cooked in the old-fashioned
style to Batisfy the hunger of the mourn
ers. After these preliminaries an elec
tions was held which resulted In choos
ing "No Shirt" as the first chief to suc
ceed the late lamented. Umapine was
elected second chief. After this the
dead chief's property was distributed
among his relations and friends in the
Indian fashion by his daughter.
TOILER AND STRIKER.
Railroad Conductors Decide to Join the
Federation. Talk of Compulsory
St. Louis, May 13. Today's session
of the convention of the order of railroad
conductors was very important. Th
report of the committee appointed last
year to look into the question of joining
the federation of railway employes was
read. It was brief and heartily "favored
amalgamation. A ballot was then taken,
resulting in 293 in favor of federation
and seven opposed to it. This is the
most important act yet taken by the or
ganization. The report of the committee
on insurance strongly seconded Clark's
suggestion to make a change in tbe in
surance laws so that all members be
hereafter compelled to belong to the in
surance department instead of at their
option, as now. The report will prob
ably be adopted.
FAIKCHILD'S IDEAS ON SILVER.
The Ex-Secretary Tells How He Would
Solve a Vexatious Problem..
Providence, May 13. At a dinner
given in his honor ty the Young Men's
Democratic club' tonight, ex-Secretary of
the Treasury Fairchild, speaking on the
currency question, said that the secretary
of the treasury should be allowed to buy
silver bullion to an unlimited extent,
then issue silver certificates against it,
or coin certificates, but to have a safety
value, which wonld stop the process
when the business of the country demon
strated that the issue of silver certificates
had gone far enough. The mnximum of
silver beyond theoutstandingcertificates
might be held by the treasury. When
(10,000,000 had accumulated, it would be
a warning that the business of the
country was getting more silver than it
needed. Then let the purchase of bullion
cease until the surplus was dimished to
$5,000,000, when the purchase might be
THE TURTLE BACK BOAT.
The Northern Pacific and Steel Barge
West Superior. Wis.. Mav 13.
Spafford, the private secretary of Henry
"Villard, was in Superior today. Mr.
Spafford was questioned in regard to tfte
probable relationship between the
American Steel Barge company and the
Northern Pacific, in the matter of lake
and rail business and particularly- the
package freight and general merchandise
traffic. While not disposed to talk freelv
upon the subject, Mr. Spafford admitted
that the near future would probably
bring the two companies into closer busi
ness relationship, which appears- to be a
tacit admission that thid business ar
rangement, which has been much talked
of, is an extreme probable one. It is
thought that this relationship will exist
as regards ocean traffic, when the barge
company completes its coast plant.

REMOVING THE DL'TIES.
Peru Compelled to Relinquish Itevenue
Owing to Scarcity of Food.
Washington, May 13. The president
of Peru has issued a decree admitting
free of duty into that republic live stock
and cattle, dried meats, salt beef, dried,
smoked or pickled fish, wheat and corn,
potatoes and other vegetables, eggs,
cheese, chestnuts, peas, beans, rice, rape
seed, herbs and spices, and has decreed
an export duty of twenty soles silver per
head on cattle exported. f his-action is

, The Denver Poison Sensation.
Denver, May 13. Dr. Graves made a
statement today in which he most em

sending the bottle of whisky to Mrs.
Barnaby. He says he did not know that
he was accused of poisoning Mrs. Barn
aby until he reached Denver. He has
employed Judge Furman as his council
and under his advise has refused to ap
pear before the grand jury. Judge Bel
ford, one of the council in the famous
Millington case, has been employed by
the friends of Mrs. Barnaby. It is ex
tremely probable that the grand jury
will indict Dr. Graves, in which case
judge Furman says he will demand an
