Non-Union Men Are Attacked at Mines Near
Vincennes, Ind., Nov. 21. Four
hundred union coal miners from
Washington, Connelburg, Petersburg,
Princeton and Montgomery arrived
here at an early hour this morning
and at 5 o'clock made an attack upon
the non-union miners employed at
the Prospect Hill mines near this
city. As a result two men are fatally
hurt and a halfdozen more seriously
injured. ' ,-.7'
The union - miners formed at the
union station and marched to the
mines. - Just as the men on the day
shift were going on duty they were
attacked. The union men asked for
the foreman and when told that he
was in bed said : , "All right ; we
will get him." They started after
Scott, the foreman, and in the melee
that followed Scott and his family
defended themselves as best 'they
could but were powerless. Scott was
badly beaten and W. r. Collins, an
attorney of Washington, a brother-in-
law of Scott, who was visiting with
the family, sustained injuries that may
prove fatal. ,

HYDROGEN ; A COMPOUND.
Discovery of Harvard Professor Supports

Boston. Nov. 20. Professor E. C.

he regards as important. .1 In a state

ItsebV which chemical theorists have
thought to be one element of which
the others would sooner or later prove
to be compounds, seems to be of com
posite nature." S -
Other photographs made at about
the same time show the curious fact
that the spectrum of lightning is not
always the same. Some of the photo
graphs show a doubling of the bright
lines. Professor Pickering' was at
first Inclined to believe that this was
a sort of composite photo, but he now
concludes that the doubling looks as
though hydrogen, the- only : element
studied in the lightning spectrum, and
hitherto believed to be least likely
ever to be proved a compound body,
is made up of at least three compon
ents. This conclusion he bases upon
the fact that there were 30 lines in
the hydrogen spectrum on one photo,
three in another and one in the third,
the different flashes havnig been pho
tographed under ; different Ji circum
stances. ' -' - - - V; ;-?v
Another remarkable circumstance
in connection with the study of pic

: Worth at the Portland Hotel
Washington, Nov. 19. This treaty
is Intended to replace the first Hay
Pauncefote treaty. That convention
was amended so extensively by the
United States Senate at its last ses
sion that the British Government de
clined to ratify it. Within a few
weeks negotiations began afresh be
tween Secretary Hay and Lord
Pauncefote, which have just resulted
in the signature of the new treaty,
drawn with special reference to the
objections found by the Senate with
the first treaty.
From a due sense of the courtesy
which must be observed towards the
United States Senate wherever a
treaty is concerned, the State De
partment is estopped from making
public the text of the new conven
tion, and that will remain secret un
til the Senate itself shall break the
seal of confidence. It is said at the '
State Department that the various
publications which have been made
of the alleged text of the treaty are .
all erroneous and conjectural, though
in view of the rather free admissions
that have been made of the purpose
of the negotiations it has been possi
ble by use of the text of the first
treaty to construct one similar iu
general terms to the new conven
The principal point of difference be
tween the new and the failed treaty is
the withdrawal of Great Britain iioru
the joint guarantee of the neutrality
of the canal, thus leaving the United
States the sole guarantor. The ex
cision of the old provision respecting
the right to fortify the canal leaves
that right by inference outional with
the United States. All commerce of
whatever nationality passing through
the canal will fare alike; there will be
no discrimination in rates in favor of
United States shipping.
Otherwise the new treaty ' is m
scope similar to last year's treaty. It
replaces technically the Clayton-JBui-
wer treaty, concluded on April 13, .
1860. -By the terms of that old con-
vention the United States and Great '
Britain- agreed that . neither . should
seek any advantages In rights of tran

Convention, Great Britain yields her
