THE DALLES, OREGON, FRIDAY. JULY 30. 1897
STORM MAY BURST
Armed Strikers Surrounded
the De Armitt Mines.
DEPUTIES HOLD THE MEN IN CHECK
The Latter Declared That De Armltt's
Men Will Be Compelled to Quit
Pittsbchg, July 29. At 2 o'clock this
morning Sheriff Harry Lowrey, was
called from bis bed and asked to send
deputies to the mines of the New York
& Cleveland Gas Goal Company. The
request came from W. P. De Armitt.
Oak Hill was invaded at midnight by
a email army from the Robbing mines
at Willock. They marched into the
village, 450 strong, to the tune of a fife
and drum. Most of them were armed
with revolvers or clubs. They said
that at least as many more of theFinley
ville, Gastonville and other mines in the
Wheeling district were on their way to
Oak Hill and would arrive eoon.
The littie town is in a great state of
excitement. Only a few deputies, about
eight or ten, were on hand, but when
' the miners arrived Superintendent
Thomas De Armit telephones at once to
A. P. De Armitt at Allegheny to send
The Robbing men say that the De
Armitt men will be forced to go out.
They are determined, but no violence is
looked for yet. They left Willock at 6
o'clock and marched steadily for nearly
six hours. De Armitt has an injunction
out restraining every one from trespass
iog on his property, and if his deputies
try to enforce this order there may be
It is estimated that bv daylight there
were several thousand miners encamped
upon the hills surrounding the property
of the New York & Cleveland Gas Com
pany. They came from every direction,
headed by a brass band. Nearly all of
them carried heavy walking sticks and
some were armed. There were no scenes
of violence, however, and no indications
of drinking. Immediately upon reach
ing Oak Hill, the strikers prepared for
The scenes around Turtle Creek, after
midnight were strange. Miners stretch
ed themselves out under any shelter
they could find. The detachment was
in charge of men selected before the
march was begun. Orders were im
In the valley, leading up from Turtle
Creek to No. 33. of the New York &
Cleveland mines, the company had a
powerful searchlight. It was kept shift
ing about in hopes of flanking any move
ments of the strikers to creep within
range of the mine unknown to the depu
ties who guarded every approach.
Long before daylight the strikers were
up, and after eating their frugal meal,
prepared for a day's work. The inten
tion was to see as many of De Armitt's
men before they got into the pits this
morning as possible. At about 4 o'clock
100 strikers assembled at Turtle Creek
and beaded by three brass bands, with
flags and banners flying, marched by
the houses occupied by De Armitt's
miners. The strikers hooted and yelled
and then marched to the mines, where
they planted themselves before the pits,
thus compelling De Armitt's men to run
the gauntlet to work.
A short time later Sheriff Lowry, who
had been asked for assistance, arrived
from Pitsbnrg with 50 deputies armed
with Winchesters. The strikers quietly
withdrew and the new deputies were
placed on guard.
When the strikers reached Plum creek
and started on a run aown the road to

fore they entered the mine, five shots
were fired from the Winchesters held by
the deputies. In reply to this the drum
corps struck up a lively air, but no re
turn shots were fired The miners who
were hurrying into pits were overtaken
and asked not to go to work. Most of
the men said they were afraid they
would lose their jobs if they stayed
away from work to attend the meeting.
They decided after a parley to go into
the mine. The miners were carrying
dinner buckets. As they turned to leave
the strikers their dinner buckets were
taken from them. Frightened, the
miners ran for the pit and did not stop
until they were behind the shelter of the
deputies' Winchesters. The mine is in
full operation. Previous to the meeting,
Mr. Debs, District President Dolan, and
Secretary Warner and M. P. Carrick
went among the strikers and counseled
them to keep within the bounds of the
When the mass meeting was cailed to
order at 10 o'clock this morning there
were 5000 striking miners in the vicinity
and before it was well under way there
were 5000 people in the vicinity of the
school house. At about 9 :30 o'clock 250
miners from the Sandy Creek mines
marched to the meeting, and quite a
large number came from Turtle Creek.
The meeting is without doubt the largest
held during a strike in Western Penn
sylvania, and the leaders are hopeful of
its effects upon the men.
TO PROTECT THE CARGO.
Steamer Portland to Be Convoyed Out
of Behring Sea.
Washington, July 29. The steamer
Portland, which is expected to leave St.
Michaels about September 15, will, it is
said, have on board gold from the Alas
kan gold fields valued at $2,000,000.
P. B. Weare. of Chicago, president of
the North American Transportation &
Trading Company, has advised the
treasury department that he fears an
attempt will be made by pirates to cap
ture this cargo and has asked that the
government detail a revenue cutter to
convoy the Portland out of Behring sea.
This request has been granted. The
revenue cutter Bear and possibly one or
two others will convoy the Portland.
WHY WEARE FEARED TROUBLE.
Chinese Pirates Were Reported as
Watching for the Treasure Ship.
Washington, July 20. More trouble
is feared in the Clondyke region, judg
ing from the telegram received at the
treasury department asking that a
revenue cutter be ordered to convoy a
vessel, of the Alaska Transportation
Company from St. Michaels down to the
Yukon river a"hd through Behring sea.
It has been intimated that a band of
Chineee pirates has been organized for
the purpose of intercepting and looting
one of the treasure crafts which are ex
pected to leave the gold regions about
August 5 and September 15. this year.
P. B. Weare, who represents the
Alaska company at Chicago, says in his
'We fear trouble, and want you to
convoy us out of Behring sea."
This message put everybody about the
treasury department on the move with a
view to granting the request for a
One of the vessels to start during the
danger period between August and Sep
tember is the Portland, but it is not
known whether this will be the treasure
craft or not. This vessel is a stanch one
and has a good-sized crew, who could
give an excellent account of themselves
in case of an emergency.
United State Has a Valid Claim Upon
New York, July 28. A Herald special
from Washington Bays:
In support of their claim to Palmyra
island, which has been taken possession
of by the British government, the Lon
don authorities refer to the fact that the
British flag was hoisted over this terri
tory in 1889. Even if the official records
of the Hawaiian government fail to show
the title of the Dole regime to the island,
the United States Is in a position to
raise the claim that the island belongs
to this government by virtue of discovery
by an American citizen. This fact is
recognized by the British authorities in
an official publication which contains a
reference to its discovery .and the action
of the British in placing their flag over
it. The publication is tbe official direc
tions of the bydrographic office of Great
Britain issued by the admiralty. In re
gard to Palmyra island, the volume
"Palmyra was discovered by Captain
Saule, of the American ship Palmyra, in
1802, and was formally annexed to Great
Britan by Commander Nicholas, of H.
M. S. Cormorant, May 18, 1889. There
was no inhabitants on the island at the
time of its annexation, although Messrs.
Henderson and McFarlane, of New
Zealand, contemplated cultivating It."
A high official of the state department
said last night that an investigation re
garding the rights of Hawaii and Great
Britain to Palmyra island is now being
Senator Morgan, of Alabama, said he
had not examined into the question of
the validity of the Hawaiian title to
Palmyra island, and was not prepared
to express a definite opinion of the sub
ject, though he was inclined to think it
a matter of comparatively small im
portance to the United States whether
Great Britain bad the island or not, on
account of its distance from the United
States and Hawaii.
The action of Great Britain in taking
possession of Palmyra at this time is
generally regarded here as a step in her
jubilee year policy of strengthening her
military line. Another step in this
policy has been brought to the attention
of the state department i.n the report of
Consul Miller, at Port Stanley, Falkland
isles, who reports the surveys are in
progress at that point under the direc
tion of Colonel Lewis, of the royal
engineers, for the establishment of a
naval station and hospital, Such a
station at this point, with repair shops
and fortifications would be of the utmost
importance to the British fleet operating
in the Southern Pacific.
BACK DOWN, WILL WE?
Figaro, Your Reputation as a Prophet
Will Suffer for This.
New Yokk, July 20. The Herald's
European edition publishes the follow
Figaro has an article on the Hawaiian
question which concludes as follows :
It is very probable that amicable ar
rangements wili be affected between the
Japanese and United States, and this
arrangement will recognize tbe previous
rights of Japan in archipelago. The
United States will undoubtedly back
down on the most important points.
But what are these to the sacrifices the
Americans would have to make if it
should ever happen that the rating of
their jingoes of the calculations of their
speculators should give raise to a real
conflict with a European power, even of
the second rank?"
