READY FOR THE MATCH
Only a Spark Needed to Pre
cipitate War in the East.
THE TURK CLEARED FOR ACTION
Awaiting the Word to Slaughter All
Christiana and Bombard the For
eign Colony of Constantinople.
London, Sept. 21. The Berlin corres
pondent of the Times quotes a Constan
tinople dispatch to the Vossische-Zei-tang
from an unusually well-informed
correspondent, which is said to have
evaded the censorship of the Tarkish
officials, and which says :
"Last Wednesday and Thursday,
everything was ready for a general mas
sacre of Christiana, and a bombardment
of the foreign quarter of Constantinople,
should the European, warships attempt
to pass the Dardanelles. There were 48
guns placed in position on the heights
above Para, and the Turkish fleet in the
harbor was cleared for action. The
street patrols were cleared for action.
The street patrols were composed ex
clusively of palace troops, while the
Bopatchis and Kurdish cavalry, although
apparently unarmed, loitered in the
streets, awaiting the word of command."
The Times has a dispatch from Sebas
topol, which declares that a portion of
the Russian Black sea fleet, consisting
of four ironclads, three gunboats and
several torpedo-boats, is cruising off
Otchicoakoff, at the mouth of theDneip
er, under orders. On receipt of a tele
gram from the Russian ambassador at
Constantinople, they will join the ad
miral, leaving Sebastopol with the re
maindervof the fleet, and go direct to the
Bosphorus.' The whole fleet ha3 been
placed on a war footing, and .has em
barked three battalions of infantry and
troops. The south of Russia has also
been placed on a war footing.
CUPIDITY JUSTLY KK WARDED.
Bad Investment Made by an Oakland
Oakland, Cal., Sept. 21. The very
natural desire of John Patton to be made
comfortable for the remainder of his
days and the hope of Mrs. A. F. Steele
'to increase her worldly store, already
ample, have furnished a sensation which
has to do with the peace and quiet of a
lady well-known and highly respected in
society's most exclusive circles.'
Patton,' who is an old soldier, said be
bad located a mining claim near Grant's
Pass, Or., bnt had no money with which
to work it. His story interested the
woman of wealth to such an extent that
she had the claim prospected and agreed
to support the old rfSan for the rest of
his life. The mine did not pan out to
the lady's expectations and now she is
trying to rid herself of her pensioner.
But the old man holds an agreement in
writing, and be refuses to abandon the
lead which he has struck late in life,
and which has thus far yielded more pay
dirt than anything he ever tumbled on
- to in the olden, if not golden days of his
- Mrs. Steele has invoked the aid of the
police to rid her of the drain on her
purse, but the officers of the law are
powerless to interfere, and the lady goes
paying Patton his pension', viewing with
alarm his rejuvenating health. When
she first saw him he was wellnigh
starved, and bis days on earth Beemed
, numbered. He has improved greatly
with the aid of her donations and
'threatens to livelong enough to make a
sad rent in her fortune. -

Desire for Freedom Infects Chinese of
.- America. .
TSiw York, Sept. 21. It is whispered
around the city that an influential and
far-ramifying conspiracy exists to over
throw the dynasty of China and estab
lish a republic. While the Chinese em
,pire jk in no imminent danger, there is
an, organization with headquarters in
Xew. Yurk which has for its ultimate ob
ject its overthrow, but will content itself
for the resent with an agitation looking
to the betterment of the Chinese people
This organization has its headqnartee

branches in every city where Chinese
abound. Its members are banded by
solemn oaths, and no Chinese are ad
mitted who are not intelligent and of
good moral character.
The president of the organization is
said to be Walter N. Fong, the first
Chinese graduate of Stanford university,
and his principal colleagues and ad
visers are the Chinese graduates of Yale,
Harvard and other American univer
sities. They propose an incursion of
school books and the Bible into China
and have secret emissaries well supplied
with literature and argument among
the Chinese to arouse them to the ne
cessity of a new order of things.
WORK OF TAE RIOTERS.
Five Lives Known to Have Been Sac
Leadviixe, Sept. 21. Five lives at
least were sacrificed in fighting and the
work of destruction at the Co ran ado
mine and the Emmet mine.
Bert Meir and James Benson, both
miners employed at the Coronado, were
killed by the explosion. They were
identified only by papers found on their
bodies. The dying are:, William
O'Keefe, foreman of hose company No.
2, shot through the stomach. '
Jas. Higgins, a miner, employed in
the Coronado mine, shot eight times in
the arms and stomach. r -
John Mahoney, a miner, shot 'through
Frank Telle and Martin.' Scott, Coro
nado miners; were shot but ' their in-
nuries are not fatal. ., -.
Today hundreds of miners 8ay they
will go to work at once. They bitterly
denounce the extremists and' say "their
action has lost the miners the strike,
The arrival of the militia is anxiously
awaited despite the apparent calm.
Local companies have been sent to the
hills and armed citizens are patroling
the streets. The city council today de
cided to aid the state officers in . appre
hending the rioters. At a mass meeting
this afternoon the lawless element will
be denounced and it will bi demanded
that troublesome men leave the camp.
It is the same old story and yet con
stantljr recurring that Simmons Liver
Regulator is the best family medicine.

eight years and find it the best medicine
