THEY FEAR RUSSIA
Czar's Illness Affects Euro
HIS DEATH MAY . BRING ON WAR
Expresses Regret fOP the Death of Gen
eral Tsu Japanese Officer Killed
at Tula RlTer.
London, Sept. 25. The European
bourses are affected by the news of the
czar'a health, as he is recognized as one
of the strongest supporters of peace, and
it is feared in the event of his death his
successor would seize the opportunity to
secure naval ports on the Pacific and en
large boundaries in the direction of the
Pamir at the expense of China, either of
which steps, it is believed, would easily
precipitate a war. On the other hand, a
dispatch from St. Petersburg today de
nies the Russian troops have gone to
Corea or that Russia has any intention
of doing anything calculated to disturb
the peace of Europe.
Two .Thousand Escaped.
San Francisco, Sept. 25. By the
steamer Rio Janeiro, which arrived from
the Orient, news was received of the
escape of 2,000 prisoners from Siberia.
The men were employed in the construc
tion of the Siberian railway, and had, as
late developments proved, been planning
escape for several months. Meager ad
vices received at Yokohama are that the
men overpowered the Russian soldiers,
who were guarding them, and securing
all the arms they could, fled. When last
heard of they were making their way
towards Corea, and it is believed they
are now safely within the borders of
that country, trying to secure passage to
more distant parts. The Russian gov
ernment has forwarded a request to the
Corean officials to assist in the capture
of the refugees, and to hand them over
as fast as apprehended to Russian au

; Fbesno, Cal., Sept. 25. H. V. Lind
sey. superintendent of the New Citizen
mine, has been arrested and taken to
Madera on a charge of neriarv. made in
connection with the character of the
mine. According to the report, Lindsey
and Charles A. Lee, of Plainfield, N. J.,
were partners in the New Citizen mine
at Deadwood, near Coarse Gold. Lind
sey sent to Lee, at Plaintield, a state
ment made before a notary public that
rock taken from the mine went $43 per
ton. It is claimed that no ore has been
taken from the mine and worked, as
alleged in the affidavit, and that Lind
sey made the statement to defraud the
foreign stockholders. Lindsey refused
to make any statement until the matter
was brought up in court. There are a
number of other allegations against him
among them of raising pay checks and
of becoming engaged to a young lady at
Wawona, while he has a family in Phila
delphia. Town Threatened by Kaffirs.
Loubenzo Marques, Delagoa Bay,
Sept. 25. Several thousand Kaffirs are
threatening, to attack this town. The
government has distributed arms among
the white population for defense.
(Lourenzo Marques is a walled Portu
guese town in Africa on the north side
of Delagoa Bay. It has a population of
about 3,000, and is protected by a roughly-constructed
old fort. Transvaal
leaders have long been anxious to secure
control of the Delagoa Bay railroad and
to have the seaport, Lourenzo Marques
preferred. With this object the Boers
recently sent $250,000 to London to pur
chase the bonds which Portugal is ex
pected to issue as soon as the Berne ar
bitrators have decided the question of
boundaries. September - 15th advices
from Pretoria said the Transvaal gov
ernment had acquired prior rights in
Delagoa Bay, including control of port
dues, thus giving the Transvaal a com
manding position and free access to the
A Marder Mystery.
. Cleveland, Sept. 25. James B. Co
ven, general freight . agent of the Valley
railroad Ctbe Baltimore A Ohio), was
shot and killed in the street by an un
known person last night. Five bullets
pierced the body. Parties living near
the scene of the murder heard shots and
a woman scream. The police have not
secured ihe slightest clew. Coven was a
widower, 50 years eld, and resided with
a daughter in Kennard street. He was
a man of exemplary habits as far as is
The coroner decided that robbery was
the motive for the murder, as everything
of value had been taken from the dead
man's pockets. .

Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U.S. Gov't Report
Her Ensbaad Denies the Story.
Stocktow, Cal., Sept. 25. The man
Janeiro, who is accused by his wife of
having bound her hands and feet in her
house, and then, having set the building
on fire, returned to this city today from
Fresno. He was at once placed under
arrest. It is highly probable, however,
that Janerro had nothing to do with the
fire, and the supposition that the woman
tied herself and fired her house seems to
have gained confirmation by the appear
ance of Janerro. He declares he knew
nothing of the matter until informed by
the arresting officer, and gives a good
account of his whereabouts. He claims
he was working in the vineyard of Mr.
Grady, in Fresno county. Today the
woman was brought face to face with
the man whom she accuses, but she
stuck to her story in every particular.
She is probably actuated by hatred of
the man she once loved.
The Axle Broke and He Stopped a
Cheney, Wash., Sept. 24. Governor
McGraw was thrown from a carriage here
today and his arm was severely bruised.
He was riding with D. F. Percival and
the Rev. Mr. Marker, and in turning a
corner sharply, the axle of the vehicle
broke. Governor McGraw sprang to
the horses1 heads and stopped a runaway.
The governor addressed an audience of
several hundred people on the subject of
his veto of the appropriation for the
Cheney normal school. He eaid he felt
that one normal school was sufficient for
the state, but in the future he would
leave that question to the legislature.
He will go to Walla Walla tomorrow to
inspect the penitentiary.
Chinese Imperial Edict.
London, Sept. 25. A dispatch from
Tien Ssin says an imperial edict has
been issued by the emperor of China
expressing regret at the death of Gen
eral Tso, killed while leading the Chi
nese at the battle of Ping Yang. The
emperor has ordered that posthumous
honors be paid the dead general, and
imperial favors have been bestowed
upon his family. Lieutenant . Ching,
first lieutenant of the Chin Yuen, the
Chinese war vessel sunk at the battle of
the Yalu river, has reached the Chinese
camp on the bank of the Yalu river.
He reported the captain of the Chin
Yuen bad escaped drowning, but died
of his wounds.
