A QUEEN LOSES HER JOB.
The Servian Ministers Expel Queen
Belgrade, May,. 19. After a consul

THE MUSKEGON FIRE.
The Loss Will, It Is Estimated, Reach
a Half Million Dollars.
Muskegon, Mich.. May 17. Firemen
continued to battle the flames till day
light, when they were practically extin
guished. Men, women and children
continued the search in the neighbor
hood of their recent homes for what
might have escaped the flames. The
people whose homes were saved wel
comed the rich and poor alike, providing
quarters until others could be secured.
There was an open-hearted svmpathy on
every hand, and nearly all the homeless
ones are provided with shelter. In a
few cases the homeless people slept out
of doors in tents. Some of the most
costly buildings burned were the court
house, valued at $50,000. The large
vaults, containing all the important
documents, are supposed to have stood
the ordeal. The Daily Chronicle started
a rslief fund for the destitute, and sums
forwarded will be acknowledged and
turned over to the.relief committee to be
expended among the" destitute. One
thing over which all the people rejoice is
that no human lives were lost. A large
number of horses, cows, etc., which
were in barns cquld not be saved. . Sev
eral explosions occurred in the burning
buildings, but no one was injured, al
though several firemen had their hands
and faces so seriously scorched that they
had to be removed. It is impossible as
yet to give any accurate figures on i he
losses and insurance. The total loss, in
surance men say, will be $500,000, and
the insurance about $300,000.

Heppner, Or., May 16. Levi Shaner,
the discoverer of Sorrow's opal mines,
which are now creating so much excite
ment in this locality, arrived from Spok
ane last evening." His team and outfit,
in charge of Otis and John Shaner, re
spectively, son and brother of Levi, pre
ceded him- overland, and they are now
ready to fully develop their claims. The
entire mountain -in - the vicinity of the
Shaner prospect is now taken - up, and
many-nice specimens of opal have been
found at some distance from the original
discovery. It is believed that the field
is an-extensive one, as parties claim to
have discovered opals in sections of the
country, fully thirty miles distant from
the 'Slianer claims. .These stones are
finer than the average worn so much
nowadays, many of which have cost,
heir owners from $16 to $50, and in

NEW ORLEANS MAYOR
Mr. Shakexpeare Writes (iovernor Nlch
old Asking the Recall of Consul
New Orleans, May 17. Mayor
Shakespeare yesterday addressed a letter
to Governor Nichols, in which he calls
attention to the course of Consul Corte,
since the lynching of the Italians, and
asks that the consul's exequatur be re
called. The letter concludes as follows:
"If t ie Italian consul, Mr. Corte, has
ever had any usefulness here, he has
outlived it, and has become, through his
own acts, not only an unacceptable per
son, but an element of dauger to this
community, in that by his utterances he
incites his inflammable people o riot or
sullen opposition to the laws and cus
toms of a country they have sought as
an asylum. Being the depository, as he
confesses himself to be, of criminal
secrets, relating to individuals of his
race, residing among us, he refuses to
give to the department of police and
justice the information he has, and
thereby increases the danger to the com
munity from these criminals. For these
reasons I have the honor to request that
you ask of the honorable secretary at
Washington the recall of Consul Corte's
exequatur by the president."
HAPPENED BY ACCIDENT.
A Montana Man Struck by Lightning
and Frightfully Injured Marks
on His Wife.
Helena, Mav 17. From a sky but
slightly clouded several vivid flashes of
lightning sprang this afternoon. George
Walker, county assessor, was driving in
the suburbs with his wife and baby. A
flash struck him on the left temple,
frightfully disfiguring his1 face, passing
across his breast and off at the right arm.
It knocked him from the burgy. His
writhings and cries were heartrendinu.
Mrs. Walker felt a tingling sensation on
her right lower limb though ; -xperienc-ing
no inconvenience. The lightning
traced on her person an almost perfect
representation of a small branch or twig,
the figures of the leaves being nearly perr
feet. The' baby was not injured. The
horse attached to the buggy fell dead in
his tracks as did also a cow fifteen feet
away. Mr. Walker is alive, with small
chance of recovery. A house in town
was also struck, a as pipe broken, and
the building set on fire at about the
same time. The flames were soon extin
guished, ; ,
A PECULIAR EXTRADITION CASE.
Squabble Over the Sister of a Man Who
Murdered the Former's Husband. ,
Washington, May 17. Barrister J. H.
Pillit, of Montreal, was at the state de
partment yesterday in conference with
Assistant Secretary : Moore on a very
peculiar-extradition case.. Some time
ago the husband of Leda Lamontaigne
was murdered by her brother, and Ieda
was an eye witness of the crime. When
her brother was on trial, Leda refused to
testify.- .She was acquitted of any com
plicity, in the.crime and went to Boston,
where she secured employment. Last
August a warrant for ; arson- was issued
for Leda, under whtch she was extra-'
dited and placed in , jail at Sherbrooke,
Quebec. . The brother -was . convicted
without the woman's evidence and was
hanged. The lawyer claims that the
woman, instead of being tried for arson,
was sentenced to a year's imprisonment
for contempt of court in refusing 'to
testify against her brother, and there
fore her imprisonment is illegal and she
should be liberated. Mr. Fillet is also
in consultation with Sir Julian Paiince
fote on the case.
A Conundrum to the Bugllxli.
London, May 17. The diplomatic
world doe not understand why the
United. States government - keeps its
ministers on the banks of the.-Tiber after
not only the recall of Baron, Fava, but
after the Italian secretary of legation in
Washington has been directed, in a pub
lished dispatch, to confine himself strictly
to the transaction of indiepensible rou
tine business. It is equivalent to saying
that Italy baa broken off, so far us she
can, diplomatic intercourse with America
but nevertheless America persists in
keeping up a diplomatic intercourse with
Prominent Los Angeles Man Missing.
Chicago, May 17. H. J. Hanchette,
secretary of the Los Angeles chamber of
commerce and manager of t:e California
orange carnival, recently exhibited here,
is said to be . missing in Chicago. The
matter has been reported to the police,
who have been notified to look for the
missing man. C. D. Hanchette, a
brother who lives here, is of the opinion
that he has fallen a victim of foul play.
When lat seen, Hanchette was in "a
Clark street ticket broker's office at 7
o'clock the night of the 8th iust.
