Spokane, Dec. 9 A terrible riot oc
curred at Wenatcbee last night, and for
three hours the town was in the control
of a mob of frenzied graders and Italians
Wenatchee is a town about 100 miles
west ol here, on the Great Northern. The
trouble was started by a drnnken rail
road man and gambler, named Tom
Guiliand. He has worked on the'' road at
different times during the year, coming
to town to carouse every pav day. Oa
these occasions be stopped with a woman
known as busetle mis woman ttrr a
month pust ha- been living with Guis
euDe Vaco, u faro dea er, who is a sort ot
boss among the Italians, of whom there
are a great number on the road A week
a?o Guiliand came to town, and attrrlwo
days bis money was all gone. Yesterday
he" was pid a small sum ot money which
was coming to him, ana, starting at a
crap gumr, wound up in the evening by
breaking the taro bank, being over $5000
winner ousette beard toe news, and
started for the place, saying she would
go with the man who had luck..
Vaco stopped her, threatening to kill
her. Guil'and knocked him dowu and
started off with the woman. Before they
had gone a block Yaco and a dozen other
Italians set upon them and a tierce tight
eusned. 1 be screams ot . toe woman and
the shouts of Guiliand brought a gang of
graders to the rescue. 1 hereupon Vaco
summoned more Italians and a pitched
battle ensued. The railway men gathered
in a group, with Guiliand and the
woman in the center, and began to re.
treat slowly, firing as they went and call
ing for belp as they fell back. Others
joined them and finally the; made a
stand. The Italians pressed fhem closely
and it seemed for a time as though the
railroad men would be wiped out, but
eventually their superior armament, most
of them having revolvers, saved them.
Many, however, were badly cut by
knives and wounded by stones and other
missiles thrown by the Italians Both
pai ties gradually broke up into small
bands and scattered through the town.
Guiliand and' the woman were spirited
away to a place of safety. Fighting1 be
tween small parties continued in different
parts of the town until daylight. No
definite statement as to the number of
wounded in the fight has yet been obtained.

La. Quash, at Olequa, November 27. The
trial lasted several days, the prosecution
being very ably conducted by Prosecut

murder trial at Kaiama in a little over i

would Dot say what he thought of the

D. Barnes accidently shot himself in the
leg. inflicting a painful wound Barnes
was preparing to take a band ot cattle
Tip the country. After mounting bis
horse he thought he would fire his pistol
to scare the animals and set them
started. He had his gloves on and un
consciously touched the weapon off as he

Npokane A Northern Extension.
Spokane. Dec. 10 A contract was let
to day for the extension of the Spokane
& Northern railroad from Nortbport to
the international boundary, a distance of
10 miles. The work will be completed
by April 1, and will give employment to
600 or 800 men. N xt summer the road
will be pushed to a connection with the
aim JIaybrirk' Case.
London, Dec. 11 There is a general
feeling here, especially among statesmen
and lawyers, that the home secretary
should not go out of his way to release
MrS'Maybrick just to oblige the United
States government. The only explana
tion is that they feel that England has
been treated cavalierly in many ways by
the Uni'ed States. A politician to-day
pointed ont that at heart Englishmen are
not pleased with the manner in wbtcb the
British lion's tail was twisted during the
recent presidential campaign. He said
"EngNnd is constantly held up tn ridi
cule and contempt to please the Irish, yet
your people ask us to release legally con
victed criminals for no other reason than
that they are Americans."
The question is one dealing with cmn
ioals only, but most people prefer to look
at it ns a political one. In the meantime
Lord Rosebery has been asked to inter
cede for Mrs. May brick, but it will re
quire all the eloquence at the command
of Secretary White to win him over, for
he has already shown that be regards

Fbesno, Cal., Dec. 9 A report has
reached here, by way of Leoioore, that
Evans and Sou tap- have been seen in
White Deer valley, a secluded region
lying several miles back of Sampson's
flat. Very few persons live in that lo
cality, it being merely a stock range. It
was suspected that Evans and Sontae; had
a winter camp among the hi Da some
where near this plane, and an enort was
made to trace them to it. Among those
owninci cactle in that region is Edwin
Dooley, woo had an exciting adventure
witb the train roobers Some sportsmen,
among whom was Kev. JLeOtord. ot Lie-
moore, were bunting in the White Deer
valley, and left their horses with Dooley,
who turned them into the pasture with
bis own animals. One of the horses eg
caped and Dooley was searching tor it.
While following a trail a short distance
from the bouse, be beard a shot and , felt
a bullet whistle past Dim. He turned
around and, looking up, saw Sontag and
Evans standing not more than 30 yaids
away. They accosted htm in a harsh
manner and atked what he was doing
'there, and whether or not he was taking
care of pack horses belonging to the de
tectives. Dooley assured the bandits
that be bad nothing at all to do witb the
detectives, but ir4be meantime be put a

Brussels, D-c. 9 The bimetallist
delegates to the international monetary
conference are discussing whether or oot
they shall unite in signing a memoran
dum on the obstruction offered by Great
Britain to a determination of the qaes
tions before the conference. If the con
ference resumes its sittings after a pro
longed adjourn mt n t, such a protest, it is
conceived, is likely to induce the British
government to present to the conference
a decided policy through its delegates
acting in unitnn thereon. The present
British delegatioo appears to have been
sent ' purposely to muddle the proceed
ings There is do cohesion among the
British representatives either as to pno
ci pie or procedure. Each delegate ap
pears to act as an individual agent, ez
ccpt. Sir C. Rivers Wilson and Sir Fre
mantle, deputy master of the British
mint, the latter of whom used his official
position to declaim any responsibility
for the proposals presented by Roths
child. Bertram Carrie and Sir William
Hon Ida worth have oot a single idea in
common, and have a strong mutual coo
tempt for eacb other's views. Neither
General Strachy nor Sir Guilford Moles
worth, the Indian delegates, have official
orders as to the course to take. It has
been made clear the British government
has purposely avoided giving any in
structions tending to the common action
of its.delegates upon any point whatever.
It is now obvious this course was de
signed to fool the conference in coisiog
to any general or special solution ot the
The Diamond Excitement.
Boise City, Idaho, Dec. 11 The dia
mood excitement is growing more in
tense. The New York lapidary, to whom
specimens of the stones found on the
south bank of the Snake river, in Owy
hee county, were submitted, reported tbat
they were closely allied 4o the diamond,
adding that a little search in the soil
whence the specimens came might result
in UDeartbing genuine stones of real
worth. In 1888 severat geologists re
ported tbat tbey bad found upon the
shores of a low, vanished sea, that once
rolled over the valley of the Snake, stones
that were iu every particular similar to
diamonds, and these almost forgotten
statements have led even conservative
people to belieye that diamond fields
may exist within 80 miles ot Boise.
