THE DALLES, OREGON. WEDNESDAY. SEPTEMBER 8, 1897
Serious Clash at Orahgeville,
in Pittsburg District.
EFFORT TO EVICT STRIKERS FAILS
Morning; Battle In Which tha Deputies
Are Itadly Worsted and Com
pelled to Leave for
Pittsburg, Sept. 7. Efforts to evict
the striking miners of the Pittsburg &
Chicago Coal Company,, at Orangeville,
one and a half miles from' Gastonville,
resulted in a riot of no mean propor
tions, and the utter- failure of the com
pany to accomplish its object.
A boat 9 o'clock last night twenty dep
uties from Washington, Pa., in charge
of Chief Deputy Wetherill, reached Fin
ley ville, where they were met by a large
crowd of strikers. Each deputy was
armed with Winchester and revolver,
but in spite of this the strikers, beaded
by 100- Polieh women closed in on them
and they were forced back and finally
retreated to Gastonville, followed by
about 200 men and women.
At Gastonville the deputies took, re
fuge in the office of the company, where
they were kept all night, during which
time the building was bombarded -with
stones and bricks and an occassional
shot was fired.
At 7 o'clock this morning the trouble
of the night reached a climax, when the
deputies sallied out from their besieged
quarters and started to march to Orange
ville. Headed by women, the strikers
rushed on the deputies with stones and
clubs and pick handles and the blows
fell thick and fast. One big woman
wrested a rifle from a deputy's bands
and struck him on the head with it, in
flicting a serious injury. By this time
1000 men, women and children had
joined the crowd. They came ' from
Venetia, Snowden, Calamity and Fin
leyville. The deputies made their way to
Orangeville and took refuge in a vacant
house, closely followed by the mob,
which surrounded the building and
threatened to burn it. One of the strik
ers approached the house with a flag of
truce and a conference was held. The
deputies were ordered to leave town
After a short parley it was decided to do
so. They emerged Irom tne bouse a
badlv scared lot of men and walking be
tween the opened ranks of The strikers,
started for Gastonville. Almost every
man in the posse was cut and bleeding
and several were badly hurt.
' As the defeated deputies ran the
gauntlet, they were greeted with hisses,
curses and ridicule. The strikers then
closed behind them and marched them
to the station, where they took the train
for Washington. After their departare

farmers to make anything of their ce
reals this year, as they are quickly
rotting. In the churches a prayer , for
fine weather was recited, and if a change
does not come immediately, the crop
might as well be left to manure the
From country Wexford, noted as one
of the richest in the country, the tidings
"The green crop may be described as
a gigantic failure in county Wexford
this -year. The greater part of the
potato crop is only fit for cattle feed
ing." From Fermanagh, a correspondent
"At a meeting held here to ask for a
reduction in rents, the parish priest pre
siding declared that not since Black 1847
has the prospect for farmers in this dis
trict been so bad. In several places the
potatoes have been a failure. Hundreds
of tons of hay have been ruined by the
heavy rains and floods."
From Carlow, known as 'tbe model
county," comes the following dispatch:
There is before our farmers an outlook
as disastrous as it is possible to con
ceive, owing to the frightful weather. A
great deal of corn cut earlv remains in
the etacks injured beyond repair. In
many districts the farmers have been
unable to cut their crops, which present
the saddening spectacle of being leveled
to the earth by the persistent rains. Ap
prehensions concerning potatoes also
have been dismally realized.
These evidences of the widespread
character of the ruin wrought by the
inclement season are merely samples
from numerous reports received. The
Irish government has adopted no meae

AUSTRALIAN CABLE NOW ASSURED
Report That Sagasta Will be Premier
New Yokk, Sept. 7. A Herald spe
cial from Barcelona says that it is stated
on the highest diplomatic authority that
the present Spanish government will go
out within a fortnight, and that the lib
era a" will come in. The Herald's corre
spondent in Washington, commenting
on the above, says :
The officials of the state department
have not received any information of a
change in" the Spanish -ministry, but
they have believed ever, since the death
of Canovas that it is quite probable the
conservative ministry would be succeed
ed by one headed by Sagasta.
Such a change has been hoped for by
the administration, for .the reason that
it.is believed that the liberals would
pursue a coarse in regard to . Cuba very
different from that followed by the con
servatives, both before and since the
death of Canovas, and that if Senor Sa
gasta should come into power be would
receive with favor the new offers of the
United States, to bring about an end of
the insurrection, which Minister Wood
ford is to make.
Condition of the Irish People Becoming
Nkw Yoek, Sept. 7. A dispatch to
the World from London says :
The World's special inquiries through
out Ireland fully corroborate the alarm
ing predictions cabled Saturday of the
failure of the harvest and a consequent
impending famine. Crises of warning to
the government are rising in a crescendo
scale from all parts of Ireland. They
are not confined, as in. former years of
distress, to the congested districts on
the western seaboard. .

After the meeting no news of a direct

made that inside information obtained
warranted the announcement that a
Canadian Pacific cable from Vancouver
to Australia would be an assured fact
at a comparatively early date, and that

LIBERALS COMB INTO POWER.
From Chicago to the Taken.
Chicago, Sept. 7.-r-'Klondike or sink"
is the motto of the members of an expe
dition which purposes to navigate from
Chicago to the mouth of the Yukon river
in the schooner George Sturges. The
Sturges will sail from Chicago in about
a month, manned and provisioned for a
trip of six months' 'duration. At the
end of that time, if all goes well, the
craft will be among the icebergs in
Behring sea and the doughty mariners i
will be getting ready to ascend the Yukon
n the spring.
The George Sturges has been purchas
ed by a party of men headed by . Adolph
Freitscb, captain of the little yacht Nina,
which crossed the Atlantic. The vessel
will sail down the great lakes and the
St. Lawrence river to the Atlantic and
thence south, rounding Cape Horn and
up the Pacific coast to the Yuokon.
At the mouth of the river the Sturges
will be left while the crew starts for the
gold fields, and when the crew cares to
return she will serve as a treasure-ship
to bring back the nuggets.
