Tlree Handrei am Fifty of tte Rioters
Three Charges Rioting, Destroying
Property, Stopping"" the Mail In
quest May Last a Week.
Wardner, Idaho, May 5. Three hun
and fifty miners accused of participating
In Saturday's riot are now confined here
tinder guard of United States troope.
With today's arrivals, 500 United States
troops are now in the Cceur d'Alene dis
trict, and all fear of further outbreaks is
There will be three charges against
the prisoners, namely, rioting,' destroy
ing property and stopping the United
States mails. It is unlikely that all of
the prisoners will be tried, but they will
be held antil evidence is collected
against the leaders.
General Merriam has his headquarters
here, but a special train is held in readi
ness to carry him to any part of the dis
trict whenever he is needed. A majority
of the troops are held in the vicinity of
Wallace, Burke, Gem and Mullan, ow
ing to the fact that most of the alleged
rioters are in that district.
The inquest over the bodies of Smith
and Cheyne will probably last for at
least a week, as about 100 witnesses are
to be examined. Coroner France, in
peaking of the inquest today, eaid:
"The inquest is in the nature of a grand
jury investigation. I have been author
ized by Attorney-General Hayes, of
Idaho, to make the investigation a?
searching as possible. We desire to
punish the guilty and release the inno
cent as soon as possible."
The Leaders Have Escaped.
Washington, May 5. The war de
partment has received the following die
patch from General Merriam:
"Wardner, Idaho, May 5. Adjutant
General, Washington: The inquest is
still in progress with closed doors. One
hundred and twenty-eight arrests have
been made by state officers under mill
tary support. No signs of resistance
are visible, bat indications are that most
of the leaders of the mob have escaped
by going east and west into Montana
and Washington. Others are hiding in
the mountains. The Bheriff at Thomp
son Falls, Mont., reports many arriving
on foot oyer the mountain trails. The
governors of Idaho and Montana are
corresponding to effect arrests in!Mon
tana. The troops are in a position to do
all that is possible. There is now no
appearance of organized resistance.

Yukon Fleet Doomed.
San Francisco, May 5. Advices from
the Northwest confirm previous reports
that nearly half of the Yukon Beet is
fast in the ice, and will probably be de

New Fruit Pest.
Salem, May 4. A new fruit pest baa
made its appearance in eeveral orchards
in the vicinity of Salem. It is a small
bug, eimilar to what is known as the pea
weevil, and works "on the buds of new
grafts. S. P. Kimball, a Polk county
orchardist, says the insect seems to be
tho same as one that made its appear
ance several years ago, and after alarm
ing fruitgrowers disappeared without do
in any damage.
I consider it not only a pleasure but a
duty I owe to my neighbors to tell about
the wonderful cure effected in my case
by the timely nre of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
I was taken very badly with flux and
procured a bottle of this remedy. A few
doses of it effected a permanent cure. I
take pleasure in recommending it to
others suffering from that dreadful dis
ease. J. W. Lynch, Dorr, W. Va. This
remedy is sold by Blakeley & Houghton,
never been claimed that Chamberlain's
Pain Balm would cast out demons, but
it will cure rheumatism, and hundreds
bear testimony to the truth of this
statement. One application relieves
the pain and this quick relief which it
affords is alone worth many time sits
cost. For sale by Blakeley & Houghton.
READY TO CUT
Productiveness of Soil in Klickitat
Goldkndale, Wash., May 4. It is rc
ported that the gardeners about Colum
bus are putting in cultivation an un
usual supply of truck this year, and they
say they have been given some pointers
as to the sure building of a railway on
the north side of the Columbia river
this summer. Yesterday Charles Tupper,
a Yakima man, closed the sale for the
Marvin property at Columbus, and it is
currently reported that he has a deal on
for some of Amos Stark's town lots,
located at that point. On the Marvin
place there is alfalfa now about ready to
cut for the first crop of hay. Mr. Tupper
says without the aid of irrigation be ex
pects to cut three crops of alfalfa during
the year, and the subirrigation frqm the
riee of the Columbia in June will be
sufficient to assume tbe second and third
crops. He is of the opinion that when
alfalfa is once started on the Columbia
river, . tbe industry will rival that of
Yukon country, from the fact that the
great expense of irrigation will be

Last winter during an " epidemic of

and effected a complete cure. John E.

Tbe Best In the World.
We believe Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is the best in the world. A few
weeks ago we suffered with a eevere cold
and a troublesome cough, and having
read their advertisements in our own

bottle to see if it would ' effect us. It
cured us before tbe bottle was more than
half used. It is tbe best medicine out
for colds and coughs. The Herald,

Manila, May 5.--4:55 p. m. Major-
General MacArtbur's division advanced
to San Fernando today and found that
that place had been evacuated by the
rebels, who left a detachment to cover
their trail by train. General MacArtbur
occupied the burning town without loss.
Tbe rebels south- of Manila attempted to
rush through General Ovensbine'a line
last night. The attempt failed, but the
rebels maintained a fusilade of musketry
on tbe Fonrth infantry regiment for
several hours. Tbe demonstration . was
ineffectual beyond scaring the inhabit
ants of Malate. The outposts of the
Idaho and California regiments beyond
San Pedro Macati were also attacked
during tbe night. General Lawton is
still quartered at Balinag.
Lawton's Hard Campaign.
Manila, May 5. 12 :25 p.m. Detailed
reports of the work of General Lawton's
expedition show that harder fighting
took place during the early part of this
week than earlier accounts indicated.
In the attack upon San Rafeal the
American forces were met with heavy
fire from a large number of rebels who
were concealed In the jungle on all sides
It was only the adoption of tactics fol
lowed in Indian fighting in the United
States every man for himself that
saved the division from greatloes. Gen
eral Lawton, as usual, was at the bead
of his line with his etaff. Scott's battery
General Lawton, when attacking in
force outside ot Balinag, saw women and
children in the rebel trenches, and sent
Captain Case in advance with a white
nag to warn the insurgents to remove
tbe noncombatants. When within 500
yards of the trenches two volleys were
fired at Captain Case's party.
On Wednesday, April 3, the men en
countered some Filipinos beyond Balinag
and drove them nntil their 150 rounds of
ammunition had been reduced to fifteen.
They were about to retire when Lieut
enant Boyd with a troop of the Fourth
cavalry came up with them, and chased
the enemy into San Meguel.
There are 2000 Spanish prisoners in
the hands of the Filipinos at San Miguel.
They are served with five cents' worth
of rice daily, and are compelled to work
hard on the rebel defenses. Several hun
dred of tbe Filipino wounded are at San
Miguel. The insurgents are sending the
women and children to the Bianaona-
batto mountains. A Bolo chief and one
of his men were captured at Balinag
General Lawton has released many of
General Luna Reported Wounded.
