' ' Accident in Peoria, 111,
Accki-asd, New Zealand, March 30.
The Bteamsbip Alameda, from Samoa,
brings intelligence of a eerioua uprising
there. It appears Henry Ida., . the
American chief justice under the joint
protectorate exercised over the islands
by the United States, threat isruain ana
Germany, fined and" imprisoned- the
chiefs of the rival factions and compelled
them to work on the roads like ordinary
convict;?. This angered the natives, who
finally broke out in armed rebellion.
King M:lt3toa sided with the chief
. justice, and sent troops to put down the
insurrection. Several sharp encounters
followed, in which 30 were killed ana
50 wounded, the rebels being driven
into' the interior. It is claimed Malietoa's
troops indulged in all sorts of barbari
ties and atrocities, such as mutilating
prisoners, beheading the dead, s-'l out
raging the women. This so incensed
the natives that a general uprising
was threatened at .the . time the
Alameda left. The foreign population
are irreatlv . alarmed,' and - looking
anxiously for the appearance for a war
ship of one of the nations forming -the
. Death In the Waters. ;..
Peoria, - 111., March 30. Workmen
were engaged this morning repairing
one of the larcre stand Dines, of the Peoria
Water Company, on the bluff, which
had been leaking. Without warning the
bottom of $he section burst and the steel
structure at once collapsed. A number
of school children were playing close by,
' and they, with five workmen, were
hurled a distance of half a block by the
force of the large amount of water in the
standpipe suddenly let loose. franK
Hogan, aged 14, is known to be instantly
. ; killed. Two of the workmen are also
missing and it 'is believed two others
lost their lives, while a dozen or
more were injured.. yThere" is' the
wildest excitement throughout the city-,
the work of rescue being carried on by
the police 'and. fire departments and the
ambulance corps. It is a difficult task
to remove' the debris, and may not. be
accomplished tonight.. Two houses were
completely wrecked by the force of the
water, half a dozen more pushed from
their foundations, and barns and other
structures smashed to kindling wood.' -
Bland Scores Cleveland.
Washington, March 30. Representa
tive Bland said today : A president in
sympathy with the purposes of the bill
would have signed it. College protessors
may criticise its language, but a man
who sprung from the people, like
Abraham Lincoln, and representing, not
the money power,-but tne, interests oi
the masses, would have signed the bill
although college professors might have
stigmatized him as a railsplitter.
Concerning the future of the silver
movement Mr, Bland said : "It is evi
dent that under the single gold stand
ard nothing can be done on the cur-
rf.n-ir nnpctinn -without consulting the
few people who own thegold of the
world. These people have dictated the
veto of this "bill. The fieht from now
on will be whether the people of this
country will control the currency Dy
permitting gold and silver to come to
the mints free and thus supply them-
eelves with : constitutional money, or
whether we are to be mere slaves of
the owners of gold in Lombard street
and Wall street. The day is last ap
nroaehine when the people's president
will sisrn a coinage bill. I intend to do
pvM-vt.hlner in mv power to present to
the president a free., coinage bill and let
him exercise his rules oi i.maiey Mur
ray on that."

Several shots were fired, and the robbers

Continuing1, the genial agent described-a
case.of one of the ydung wid
ows from a neighboring town'.who he
had learned' was married on January 4,
probably immediately after getting
her quarter's pension.
She could have married at any, time
and drawn her pension down to the
day of her marriage. She evidently
wanted .the whole . amount, which
was $36, and delayed the happy day to
get it- She .would have had some dif
ficulty getting .her voucher certified
under a different name, and for a frac
tional amount of her quarter's pay, so
that it whs rirobablv on the whole
best to get married on pension day.
