Danger in Colorado.
The Union'. Threat.
Washington, May 31. A. L. Randall,
chairman of the International Typo
graphical Union committee on govern
ment ownership of telegraphs, haa writ
ten a letter to Postmaster-General Bia
BelI,y8C3asing him of never reading the
postal telegraph bill on which hereport
ep adversely to Chairman Wise, of the
house committee on commerce.' Mr.
Randall says Mr. Bisdell evidently took
it for granted the bill before him was the
Wanamaker bill of the Fifty-first con
gress. He: then calls attention to the
government ownership of . telegraphs in
other countries, and asks, "Are not the
people of this coantiy as capable of con
ducting a government telegraph s hose
of European nations?" This is iuiuwed
np with this threat: "The Interna
tional Typographical Union has inaugu
rated this movement. It will do its ut
most' to defeat any man found working
or voting against the. great reform, re
gardless of party affiliations." '
A Scbism In toe Army. ' ' "
St. Louis, May 31. Kelly's common
weal army divided today,' and 600 of the
men, under Colonel George Speed of
California, will hereafter march or float
by themselves. The schism was empha
sized late this afternoon by the appear
ance of Speed, .with J. D. Jones, the
agent of the Chicago publishers, and
several officers of rebellous staff before
Judge Lubke of the circuit court. ' They
charged Kelly with the illegal retention
of the entire commissary stores and
equipment of the fleet, and they wanted
the court to compel a division of the
property and to compel Kelly to give an
account of the receipts ,and disburse
ments of money contributions. Judge
Lubke told Colonel Speed he had a per
fect right to surround the commissary
boats and prevent their removal and
then apply for a receiver. A division
of the property and funds will be sought
thronght the courts tomorrow.
No Longer Question of Wage.
Colorado Springs, May 31. The
authorities today notified the mine-owners
who have properties at Cripple Creek
that the trouble in that district has gone
beyond the question of wages or of ar
bitration of wages. It is now, they say,
-entirely one of putting down the law
lessness and insurrection existing in the
district, and this they propose to make
every effort to do. For this purpose a
special session of the grand jury haa
been called, and the Cripple Creek cases
will at once be taken up. People who
live and do business in Cripple Creek
are coming to Colorado Springs in large
numbers, for they state they no longer
dare remain at home. The majority
have been ordered to leave by the strik
ing miners. They tell stories of out
rageous treatment and of innumerable
threats from the strikers.
. . . Alone the Northern Pacific.
TACOMA.'May 31. Assistant Superin
tendent Dickinson , of the Northern.
Pacific, wired early this evening that
the break had been repaired across
Clark's Fork, near Hope, Idaho,-and
that Friday's overland would arrive on
time. The trains of two previous
days will be combined, also arriving to
morrow afternoon. East-bound trains
are now passing the break. There
have been small washoutsnear Garrison,
Mont., and one between Pasco and Wal
lula. These will be repaired by to
morrow. The Great Northern is still
tied up. The arrival of the. Northern
. Pacific trains will relieve the mail fam
ine on Paget sound. . . ,

' The Cruiser Colombia. . "
Washington, May 31. The official re
port of the naval board which conducted
the recent trial of the Colnmbia was sub
mitted to Secretary McAdoo.- It makes
it evident that the Columbia is one of
the finest vessels afloat. On 'her way
down the Delaware today she struck
some drift logs, and as a result several
of her plates were dented. The-ehip has
gone into the dock to permit of exami
nation. Mr. McAdoo says Captain
Sumner was free from blame, as the
vessel was in the hands of a competent
pilot, and the damage was trifling.
, '. The Injunction Refused.
Denver, . May' .31. In : the United
States court, Judges Riner and Hallett,
concurring, refused to grant the injunc-
tion to restrain, the Miners' Union from
interfering with' working the Raven Gold
Mining Company of Cripple Creek, for
lack of iurisdiction. An injunction ' was
asked for on the ground, that the gov
ernment still has an interest in - mining
claims which the company is acquiring
under the mineral land laws.
The1 Colombia Rising at Marcus.
Marcus, Wash. May 31. The Colum
bia is at high-water mark, and is rising
a foot a day. High water is two weeks
earlier, than before. Snow in the moun
tains of British Columbia is still from 7
to 20 feet deep.
;je JUPITER'S RED POT.
tt Can. Be Easily Seen Through a Small
Telescope by Amateur Astronomers.
All owners of telescopes, and their
number has become very large within
the past Jew years, will be glad to hear
that the strange red spot on Jupiter, .
which was so much obscured last sum
mer as, at times, to be invisible even
with the huge Lick telescope, is slowly
brightening1 again. The appearance,
says the Youth's Companion, is as if a
veil of clouds which had been drawn I
over it was being fO"dually remove'. . J
This is by no means ' the only time '
that this singular spot on the giant .
planet has behaved in a similar way j
since it first made its appearance in
1878. Just what the spot is, and what
the changes in its aspect mean, astrouo
iners do not yet know. But that it is a
tremendous phenomenon upon the sur-"
face of the great world of Jupiter is ev
ident when a few figures concerning its
dimensions are recalled.
' The spot is not less than thirty thou- j
sand miles long and at least seven thou-
sand miles wide. In other words, it cov
ers an area more than equal to the.
whole surface of the earth.
The fiery hue which it sometimes
presents for months together teems
very suggestive in view of the proba-
bility that Jupiter is a planet yet in an
intensely heated condition, whose con- '
tinents and oceans, if it is ever to pos
sess any, have not yet been formed.
When at its brightest the red spot can
be well seen with a telescope of only
three or four inches' aperture, so that it
then forms a suitable object for obser
vation by amateurs.
This year Jupiter is particularly in
teresting on account of the distinctness
of its great system of belts, lying par
allel with its equator. , Small tele
scopes show the principal belts easily,
and it is very interesting to watch the
changes that take place in them from
time to time, particularly when it is re
membered that what one is looking at is
probably vast masses of swirling clouds
in the heated atmosphere of a world
that may be said to be in the process of
creation. . "

FISHY WISE VIRGINS.
They Have Marvelous Blucflsh at Iliirne
gat, So Says the Captain.
"I -iiave fished all along the coast,
from the St. John's to the Hudson,"
said the irrepressible Capt. Lund, who
minus notmng of taking his river
steamboat, City of Jacksonville, out to
sea when it is blowing rifled thousand
pounders, "but the fattest bluefish I
ever saw were those I , caught off
Barnegut" in the merry month of
August. I ran out in a Barnegat sneak
boat with a friend and we had . a fine
run of luok. The blues were running
very large in the wake of a school of
menhaden, and as for fat, oh! myM tell
you, butter was lean in Comparison!
They fairly shone with oleaginous os
culescenscy?' (this - is a . word found
only in Florida dictionaries), says the
New York Herald.
"Well, sir, what do you think? We
got so interested in fishing that we did
not notice where we were going, and
when darkness came down we found
ourselves far out of sig-ht of land and
without wind enonsrh to knock a St.
J ohns river cow in other words, a .dead
calm. Ve did not mind that so much,
sor we were on a bank and able to
anchor, but when .my friend went to
light his anchor lights he found to his
horror that the oil had run out and the
oil can was empty.
"There we were right in the track of

" 'Tap a blue,'-1 suggested. . -
" 'Just the thing,' shouted myl friend,

"In less time than it takes to tell it
he had picked up one of the largest and
fattest of our captives and tapped it
with his penknife, and, will you be
lieve it, we got four gallons of pure
menhaden oil for our lamps but of that

in the St. John's river." said the cap
tain, with a far-away, homesick look in
his starboard eye, "but when it comes

APAD PLACE FOR WIDOWS,
In India They Are Treated as If They
. Were Outcast.
" "The practice of treating- widows as
quasi-criminals, outcasts or slaves is
among- Hindus of high antiquity. It is
probably a substitute for a still older
custom once universal among the con
quering' tribes of the Asiatic world,
slaying the wives of chieftains on the
burial places of their lords;
As manners grew milder and men less
desperate, and new religious ideas
were born, that practice was abolished
and widows were, permitted to live,
but only as persons whose . right to
survive must be regarded as imperfect.
Their -position became 'that of house
hold slaves, or, rather, family out
casts, entitled to- tio honor, bound to
servile offices, dressed in the meanest
clothes', fed with the cheapest food
and regarded by friends as persons who
ought to consider themselves incurably
degraded. Had not the -very - gods
themselves, or the fates, pronounced
them deserving of heavy suffering? ;
Of course, natural laws are not
wholly suspended ' even by supersti
tion,' and thousands of widows pro
tected by personal affection, .'or their
own abilities, or by thesir weslth for
widowhood does not cancel rights of
property lead deeently happy and
contented lives. The majority, how
ever, suffer under the ban typified by
the shaving 'of their heads, that is,
they are regarded till death as fallen
from all title to respect,and are treated
with a habitual indignity which, even
when they are exempt from actual op
pression, makes . he position of unof
fending women no better than that of
slaves or convicts.
So severe is their lot that it excites
pity even among those who believe
that it is sanctioned by religion, and it
would probably have been ameliorated
long since but that it fits in with one
of the principal Hindu arrangements .
that of early marriage.
