An Earthquake in Greece Destroys
, Whole Cities and Causes Great
Loss of Life.
CnicAGO, April 21. A summary of
the coalminers' strike tonight shows that
the officers of the Mine WorkerB Asso
ciation did not go far amiss in their cal
culation as to the number of men who
would obey the order to go out on strike.
From reports received up to midnight it
issafet-i say that over 120,000 are out,
and the probabilities are that all those
who are uot will be added during the
next week, when those who were luke
warm today are advised of the general
walkout'.- The miners of Illinois, Penn
sylvania, Ohio, Maryland, West Vir
ginia and a part of Indiana, struck work
to a man, but those of Iowa, Missouri,
Kansas and Colorado are still holding
back. The leaders of the strike p- very
Banguineof victory, notwithstancng the
claims of the operators that they have
enough coal to last until the workmen
are ptarved into again taking up pick

EARTHQUAKE IK GREECE.
The Shocks Continued Until Noon Sun
day. - .
Athens, April 22. Tne earthquake
shockB that begun at about 7 :30 o'clock
Friday evening continued with more or
less frequency until noon today. All
last night the oscillation of the earth
was noticeable and the people of this
city were in a state of semi-panic.
The villages . of Atalanta, Larymin,
Proskina, Malesinza, 'Mazi, rella and
Martino are in ruins- Serious damage
has been done at Chalis, and several
villages on the island of Euboa. At
Thebes 500 houses fell. The city is in a
state, of panic and ..destitution. The
terrified people rushed in crowds away
from Thebes, believing that the end of
the world had come. The government
has sent a warship to Thebes with 500
tents, a large number of surgeons, a de
tachment of engineers and supplies sf
food. In . three villages, Malesina,
Froskina and Martino, all in the prov
ince of Liocris, 129 persons were killed.
The mayor of Larymni telegraphs that
a heavy shock occurred at Froskina
while, vesper services were being held
in the parish church. The walls -of ' the
church fell, burying all the worshipers
in the ruins. Scarcely a person in the
church escaped without injury. Thirty
were taken out dead. Houses were
thrown down in other parts of the vil
lage and the money loss is great, some
of the villages being practically ruined.
At Malcoina houses tottered and fell, as
though built of cardboard. In this lit
tle village 60 persons were killed. ' In
some cases entire families fathers,
mothers and children were taken from
the ruins dead. At Martino 39 persons
were killed. Here, as at Proskina, the
parish church was the scene of a .great
number of fatalities. In the vicinity of
Athens the fatalities were less numer
ous, but the property damage is great.
THE TOTAL DEAD.'
The total number ' of deaths thus far
reported is 160, but there is scarcely
any question that this number will be
augmented when the more remote vil
lages are heard from. As this dispatch
was being sent from Athens, a sharp
shock was felt that for a time caused
consternation in the telegraph office. '
Dolph's Bill Defeated.
Washington, April 21. Dolph tried
to have called up in the senate his bill
to reimburse settlers $1.25 per acre on
lands within the forfeited railroad
grants. His motion was defeated 25 to
19, a party vote. All the republicans
voted for it, and all the democrats and
Pefl'er against it. This means the de
feat of the bill for this session, for the
democrats and populists are opposed to
the payment of any money to these set
tlers and placing them on an equality
with other settlers.

Gold Reserve Decreasing.
Washikgton, April 18. The net gold
in he treasury at the close of business
today was $103,673, 52S, and the cash bal
lance $131,348,741. Information re
ceived at the treasury indicates there
will bo another heavy payment of gold
next Saturday, which possibly may
reach last week's shipment of $4,200,000
It is expected,' however, that no more
than half of the amount will be' taken
from' the subtreasuries, the banks fur
nishing the rest. . Nevertheless, the
gold supply in the treasury is decreasing
week by week until " it- has reached a
point where the $100,000,000 reserve is
liable any day to be again encroached

Bishop Corrigmn to Be- Arraigned at
Rome on Most Serious Charges.
New York, April 20. The Herald
says : The trouble which began in this
diocese of the Roman Catholic church
several years ago and which originated
with the Rev, McGlynft's disobedience,
not yet ended. It is revived in a new
and more starting form. In fact, the
Herald has- been informed that the
Most Very Rev. Bishop Corrigan is to be
arraigned in Rome on most serious
charges. The substance of the charge is
conspiracy to destroy the influence of
Mgr. Satolli, the apostolic delegate.
Mgr. Satolli has for some time past been
working quietly but steadily to obtain
the evidence against the bead of the
diocese. - -
Conspiracy In Brazil's Revolt.
New Yokk, April 21. A 'Herald's
Rio special says the government has not
notified the diplomatic corps that the
republic is at peace. The action of
congress on the question of the state of
siege is awaited with anxiety. Some qf
Da "Gama'a personal papers recently
captured were found to contain docu
ments showing the complicity of British
and Portuguese officials with him to re
store monarchy and expressing full
sympathy with the rebel cause. The

KEEPS HIS POLITICS A SECRET.
The Prince of Wales Treats Ail Classes
with the Same Tact.
Of all tactful royal personages there
is no one that shines more brilliantly
in this particular than the prince of
Wales, whose unquestioned power and
predominant influence in English so
ciety and over English life are entirely
owing to the delicate tact with which
they are exercised.- How exquisite is
this tact may be gathered, says a writ
er in the New York Tribune, from the
circumstance that, although the prince
is approaching, his sixtieth year and
has been the most conspicuous public
figure in English life for the past four
decades always in full glare of the
prying gaze of the people, and without
scarcely a day's privacy yet up to the
present moment no one, not even
among his dearest friends, possesses
any inkling as to the true character of
his political sympathies. He is equally
courteous and gracious to honl Salis
bury and to Mr. Gladstone. He has
both tory and liberal statesmen to
stay with him in the country at Sand-'
ring-ham; he has even shown marked
civility to Irish home rulers, so much
so,, indeed that, there are some people
on both sides of' the Atlantic who
fondly imagine that the prince, is al
most a fenianNoone, however, knows
anything on the subject "for sure;'
and hence, when the prince comes to
the throne, he may be expected to fig
ure as a model of all constitutional
monarchs, holding an impartial bal
ance between the two great political
parties, and being absolutely free from
any suspicion of inclining more to the
one than to the other. And were the
prince to die before succeeding to the
throne he will be remembered both in
England and on the continent as the
man of the present era who was dis
tinguished among all his contempor
aries for possessing in the highest de
gree that most indispensable of all vir
tues, namely, tact.

SHOT AMD BOBBKD.
The Boldest Crime Ever Committed In
Charles B. Malarkey, an assistant in
the office of his father, Charles Mal
arkey, county treasurer, was shot' down
Saturday afternoon in Portland by a
murderous assailant, the vault robbed-of
all its valuable contents, and two honrs
before the atrocious crime was discov
ered, the thief and wonld-be murderer
The time of . the shooting-was about
1 :30 p. m. after the young man had
come from dinner. A stranger came in
while- he was alone in the office and
asked to haye a $20 gold piece changed.
Malarkey went to the vault, opened it;
got $15 in gold and $5 in silver, and had
turned around to walk -back' to the
counter, when be was surprised to see
the man inside the railing, close behind
him, and he was ordered to throw vup
his bands. The boy tried to rush past
the robber wben he was shot. The
bullet entered his right breast above the
nipple and ranged outside'of the ribs to
the front of the shoulder blade.
It was nearly two hours after the shot
before -thedeed was discovered. No one
entered the treasurer's office until about
3 :10 ' o'clock wben the boy's father ar
rived, and not knowing anything about
the tragedy, almost, stumbled over the
body of his son. The yonng man lay on
his back in front of the vault, his feet
toward the .open doors. Ilia father
thought that he had fainted, and hastily
kneeling by his side said : .
"What is the matter, my son??'
"I'm shot, papa," was the reply.
Scarcely believing what he heard, Mr.
Malarkey said, "Oh, I guess not but
who shot you?" v
"I don't know who he was," said
Charley, "but he robbed the vault."
Meantime Mr. Malarkey had opened
the oung man's coat, and found his
clothing saturated with blood. Jle
shouted . for assistance, and in a very
short time the whole building was in an
uproar of excitement. Surgeons were
sent for, and-the wounded youth was re
moved to his father's residence.
Charley briefly related to his father
the facts of the case, and gave him a
description of the robber. Mr. Malarkey
made a hasty examination of the vault,
and almost at a glance could see that all
of the. cash tills had been emptied, but
none of the checks or valuable papers
had been removed. The . robber , evi
dently knew his business, for he care
fully avoided taking anything that might
lead to his identity. - ...
The amount stolen is not exactly
known, bat is somewhere between $1,000
and $2,000. The wound is not thought
to be fatal. - :

The Pacific Coast Steamship Com
pany's steamer Los Angeles, bound
north from Newport, Cal., and way ports
to San Francisco, ran on the rocks at
Point Sur lighthouse, 30 miles south of
Monterey, between 9 and 10 Saturday
night. The passengers and crew took to
the boats, and the steamer sank within
a few minutes. . So far as known four
lives were lost. The captain, who had
retired, had given orders to. the third
mate to call him when a certain number
of revolutions of the wheel had been
noted. The mate failed to do bo, and
the steamer went upon the rocks at' 9:15,
and in 10 minutes she sank.'
' Idolatrous Arlxonlans-
' There is. a small tribe of Indians in
southern Arizona who are idolaters.
They are in reality sun -worshipers, but
make small images out of clay with
faces supposed to represent the sun,
although bearing- little if any resem
blance, to it. They do not associate
with other tribes, and are very rarely
seen by .white men.' - The idols have
large round bodies and heads, with eyes
and mouth and ears, beams radiating
from the eyes over the face. The In
dians have -these in their rude houses
or wigwams, and at certain seasons
they hold a sun dance, which is with
them a religious ceremony. They have
no other form of worship, although a
few of them were at one time induced
to abandon their idols by the works of
Imperial bicycle, lightest and best to
date. See J. M. Huntington & Co.
