THE HUGE RAFT GONE
It Went to Pieces Off Tilla
. WILL PROBABLY BE A TOTAL LOSS
Kept JTatt to tfce Tow Until It Became
Necessary to Sire toe Tug-Bough
San F2ANCISCO, Oct. 18. The tug
Monarch, which towed the mammoth
log raft out over the Columbia river bar
on Friday last and started with it for
this port, arrived here this morning and
reports that the raft is a total loss. The
raft went to pieces the second day out.
Captain Thompson states he never be
fore experienced Buch heavy weather.
He safely crossed the Columbia bar with
" his tow, but after proceeding southward
a short distance he encountered terrific
seas. The Monarch could not budge the
raft an inch. She hung on, however,
and did not lose ground. It was off
Tillamook head that the raft began
breaking up. Once started, the huge
mass was not long in going to pieces.
When the final collapse came, 125
fathoms of heavy chain with which the
raft had been bound, and to which the
tow line was attached, went to the bot
tom. This served to anchor the tug,
which, tossed in the heavy seas, was for
a time in a perilous position. After the
. tug had hang there for an hour, the line
was finally cut and the chain and haw
ser allowed to go to the bottom. The
Monarch then steamed ahead for this
port. Captain Thompson believes that
in ordinary weather he could have
brought the raft into port, but in the
storm which prevailed off the Oregon
coast it was an impossibility. Seas
broke over the raft with such force that
all the lights were extinguished the first
night out, and in the darkness it was
impossible for the tagmen to tell any
thing about the condition of their tow.
The raft contained 10,000 spars and piles,
and was valued at about $33,000." Cap
tain Thompson says that the Monarch
encountered no wreckage which might
have been from the missing ship Ivan
hoe or any other vessel.
Dolby Behind the Penitentiary Walls.
Columbus, O., Oct. 18. Jasper Dolby,
the negro sentenced at Washington
Courthouse to twenty years imprison
ment for criminal asBault on Mrs. Mary
C. Boyd, an old white woman, was
landed in the penitentiary at 7 o'clock
this morning. He was escorted by
Sheriff Cook and Deputy Basick, ac
companied on the train by troops. The
"prisoner was taken from the train at
Dennison avenue and walked to prison.
All the troops have left Washington
Courthouse. A Columbus Dispatch re
porter, who came with the train, says
after midnight things quieted down.
- The citizens had nearly all gone home,
yet many persons stood on the neigh
- boring corner's until a much later hour
discussing the affair, as may be readily
imagined in connection with such a ter
rible sensation as the killing of two men
and the wounding of eleven others by
the militia. ; The military until . 3 :30
numbered lees than' 100 men. Against
the hundreds of men crowded into or
" about the courthouse this small band
" kept up a determined front for twelve or
fifteen hours. Finally, when the First
regiment from Cincinnati and two com
panies of the Fourteenth at Columbus,
arrived about 3 :30 a. m., a square was
formed by the men of the Fourteenth,
and escorted by the First, the line of
march from the cars was taken up, the
. negro being in the square.
The prisoner was in the courthouse
about twelve hours, the officers not dar
ing to attempt to return him to jail
after sentence had been passed. Just
before the troops left, the death of G.
W. Johnson, or "Mac" Johnson, was
announced, making three deaths. He
lived at Kyle's, Bntler county, O. Frank
Niederhouse, aged 70, shot in the leg
ana Buttering amputation, cannot but
vive. He was the only prominent citv
aen injured. Theodore Ammerman,
aged 22, at last accounts was still in a
critical condition. Tke reinforcements
, called for by Sheriff Cook at 4 p. m., did
Highest of all in Leavening
rr a r n. rm
not arrive until 3 :30 this morning. The
shooting of the citizens occurred about 7
p. m. It is only 39 miles to Washing
ton Courthouse. It is claimed greater
promptness on the part of somebody
might have saved the loss of life. ;
The prisoner stated to the prison offi
cials that he was not guilty, but entered
a plea of fguilty because he bad been in
formed he was to be mobbed. He was
clearly identified by his victim.
Governor McKinley, being asked
about the affair, said: "The act speaks
for itself. The troops wera sent to act
in aid of the tcivil authorities, who were
powerless to quell the mob that was
seeking to overthrow the law and its
orderly administration." The gover
nor say 8 he will not leave Ohio as
long as there is a possibility of trouble.
He has canceled his engagements at
Louisville and Nashville, and the meet
ing at New Orleans will depend upon
the developments of today. ,
Feeling Against the Militia.
Washington Courthouse, O., Oct.
18. The feeling against Colonel Colt
and his troops was so intense this morn
ing that had they remained in town far
ther rioting and - bloodshed could not
have been avoided. The indignation
against Sheriff Cook is as fierce as
against Colt. Leading republicans are
circulating petitions asking for Cook's
removal from the republican ticket,
upon which he is a candidate for re
election. It is believed there would
haye been no trouble whatever had the
militia not leen called out. No word of
defense of the guards who fired last
night can be heard. They shot without
warning into the public street crowded
with people, most of whom had been
called out by an alarm of fire, and were
returning home. When the fire broke
out the streets were comparatively de
serted, and not more than 150. were
about the courthouse. The fronts of the
buildings facing south from the court
house show the effects of the fusilade in
broken glass and shattered masonry.
Twenty-four people were wounded,
among them two women. . One boy was
killed outright, two'-men have since
died of their injuries, and three more
are fatally hurt.
Governor McKinley was appealed to
this morning to remove the troops still
remaining, and at 10 :30 he ordered the
First regiment to return to Cincinnati,
which they did at 11:30. There are
now no guards at the jail or courthouse.
The latter is filled with curious people,
but there is no danger of further vio
The Czar Is Doomed.
London, Oct. 18. Anxiety regarding
the health of the czar was increased to
day by a dispatch from St. Petersburg
distinctly announcing that the condition
of the czar has perceptibly changed for
the woree. The Official Messenger, at
St. Petersburg on Tuesday, in a special
edition, published the following bulletin,
signed by the physicians in attendance
on the czar :
"After consultation, we find the dis
ease of the kidneys shows no improve
ment. His majesty's strength has
diminished, but the physicians in at
tendance hope the climate of the south
coast of the Crimea will have a benefi
cial effect upon the health of the czar."
An official dispatch indicating the
sudden gravity of tha czar's condition
was sent to Darmstadt yesterday, and a
reply received today, saying the Grand
Duke of Hesse-Darmstadt and the Grand
Duchess Sergius, his sister, had started
for St. Petersburg. The news from Liv
idia caused consternation in St. Peters
burg, and there is a general feeling the
end may be expected any day. . Conse
quently great anxiety is experienced re
garding the consequences of the czar's
St. Peteesbueg, Oct, 18. It is an

A. Big Batlle Reported.
Tien-Tsn, Oct. 18. A dispatch from
Port Arthur, dated October 16, states

Thornton haven and proceeded to Ping
Yang inlet, which they are strongly for

here that a big battle had been fought
between Chinese and Japanese forces
north of the Yalu river Monday, October
