OLYM PI A. Wash.. March 28. Thn

by the legislature toward tho closo of

that they aro favorably Impressed with
It. The bill amends tbo state school
codo In several Important particulars.
nnd went Into effect Immediately upon
us approval uy the governor.
Prior to that tlmo school elections
were held on the first Saturday In
May. Tho new law provides that thev
shall occur on tho first Saturday In
June. It also provides that tho newly
elected officers shall tako their posi
tions tno nrst Monday in Juno, and
that they aro to employ the teachers
for the ensuing year. Tho old law cavo
tho retiring board tho right to employ
tho teachers for the coming year, and
this Is where tho "howl" will bo raised.
It has been tho custom to employ
teachers as early In tho year as possi
ble sometimes In February. In tho
event that a teacher was not success
ful in securing a position from one
board, tho early re-election mado it
possiblo for him to look elsewhere.
rsow all this win be changed, because
tho Juno election will force boards
of directors to mako their selections at
about tho same time. Already com
plaint of tho Injustice worked by the
new law has begun to be made to the
state superintendent's office, but thnt
oitlclal Is powerless to remedy matters.

ENGLAND CALL8 A HALT.
Warns China Agalnit 8lgnlng Any
WASHINGTON, March 29. Tho
British govornmont has protested
against China mnklng a convention
with any power touching territorial or
financial matters until tho present
troubles in that country aro conclud
ed. Tho fact of tho Drltlsh nrotcst
was mado known horo for thn flrt
tlmo today by a dtanatch from ono of
tho foreign officers of Europe It says
tho protest was mado through Sir
Ernest Satow, tho British mlnlstor at
Pekln. It does not stato whon tho rep
resentations woro made, but from tho
fact that tho dispatch was received In
Washington today. It la taken that tho
protest occurred within tho last ilar
or two. Although tho Russian agree
ment Is not specifically referred to. It
Is said to bo clear that tho British
action Is directed against tho Russian
agreement. Tho language appears to
be similar to that used by Secretary
Hay, In tho American nrotest. Tho
effect of tho British action is to placo
tho United Stafes, Japan and Groat
Britain in formal onnosltlnn to thn
signing of a convention by China with,
any power pending tho settlement of
tho Chinese troubles. Tho course of
Great Drltaln Is tho moro significant
from tho fact that tnat govornmont
and Germany havo a written alliance
relating to Chinese affairs.
The concurrence of tnesn nrntnntn
probably explains why tho Manchur
lan agreement has not been signed.
There was no definite information re
ceived here today at the stato depart
ment or at any of tho foreign em
bassies as to whether tho agreement
had been signed or rjected. There
was something of a stir In diplomatic
quarters over tho report coming from
official sources that the United States
was considering tho advlsabllltv of ml.
dressing Russia directly on tho sub

havo been addressed to China. Copies

that this step was contemplated by

Serious Accident In a New Pennsyl
CONNELLSVILLE. Pa.. March 28.-
Tho first mlno explosion to occur In
the now Klondike region of Fayetto
county happened today. One man was
killed Instantly, five will die, and 10
aro burned and crushed bo terribly
that It Is doubtful If they will recover.
Tho body of the dead man Is miss
ing. Tho Injured men have been
brought to the Cottage stato hospital.
As a result of the explosion, tho mine
Is on lire. The cause of the explosion
was an accumulation of gas In the
heading of the Gates mlno, ono of tho
now mines opened up this winter by
tho American Steel & WIro Company.
Tho Gates plant Is located Just
across the Monongahela river from
Mnsonjown. When the explosion oc
curred nt 9 o'clock this forenoon a
group of 1G miners had gathered In a
cross entry about GOO feet from the
bottom of tho shaft and 50 feet from
the face, awaiting tho discharge of a
blast. Tho chargo of powder was put
Into tho blast ns usual and touched off
by MIchaol Goble, the blaster. In tho
meantime a pocket of gas had accumu
lated at tho faco and gradually drifted
out toward tho heading. Tho same In
stant tho fuso was touched off thero
was a blinding flash which suddenly
filled tho entry In which tho miners
had taken rofuge. Thero woro two ex
plosions. The first was so terrific that
it left tho men dazed and stiffened :
then thero was another rush of nlr,

LONDON, March 29. A dispatch
from Manila says that several mem
bers of Agulnaldo's staff wero cap-
uirea witn nim and brought to Manila,
mo insurgent, leader anu nis men
were captured near Caslguran, north
Where the Capture Was Made.
Tho province of Isabela, where tho
capture of Agulnaldo occurred, is on
tho Island of Luzon, about 200 miles
northeast of Manila, and about 75
miles north of Daler, on the eastern
coast, which place was made memora
ble by tho capture of Lieutenant Gill
more and his party from tho gunboat
lormown, in April, 1899. Isabela
province Is wild and mountainous, es
pecially along tho coast, whero the
high range known as Gran Cordillera
oriental extends for 100 miles or moro
from north to south, the highest nolnts
of tho range being but a few miles
from the shore. Rugged trails. In somo
places being but a foot or two In width,
lead across the mountains, frequently
crossed uy rusnmg streams, and where
theso overflow their banks, the trails
aro waist deep In mud. It was to this
