When ooming out of the entrance

bruised. The dirver was injured in

A GALLANT ENGINEER.
rasseogers on the Seattle, T.ake Shore
& Eatttern Saved.
Seattle, June 8. As passenger train
No. 2 on' the Seattle, Lake Shore &
Eastern road, south-bound, was round
ing a curve ten miles north of McMur-
ray yesterday afternoon, the flange on
one of the engine wheels broke and the
engine turned a somersault down a
three-foot embankment, carrying the
tender and baggage car with it and
dragging both ooaches from the rails,
but not from the track. The train waE
running twenty-five miles an hour, but
the engineer, Qeorge Gabriel, stuck to
hia post, put on the airbrake and saved
the twenty-five passengers. His cour
age came near oosting him his life, for
he was buried in the overturned cab
whioh was at once filled with scalding
steam, fortunately one ol the big
driving wheels of the engine broke into
the tender tank ana released the water,
which flowed completely over the en
gineer's body till he was released by
Conduotor MoCaffey and Brakeman
Wilson. It was found that he had
been struck a severe blow on the right
thigh, which will lay him up for a
couple of weeks, and may result in ser
ious complications. Six months ago
the same heroio man, sitting in the
same engine cab, saved a Lake Shore
train in the same manner, paying the
penalty of a broken leg, from which he

THE MOSCOW CRUSH.

. Moscow, Jui'e 8. Eye witnesses of
the terrible crush on the Hodynsky

his own business and that) there was no
need of any further fear of aooident.
Popular feeling against Vlassovsky is
intense, and his name has become a

with bottles and stones, would have

It appears that during the orush a
number of Cossacks, finding themselves
surrounded, freely used their whips on

ants were drowned in the vats of beer
provided for the feast, in which they
plunged in order to scoure the liquor.

TO MAINTAIN SPANISH RULE
Spaniards Protest Against What They
Consider Unfriendly Utterances ef
the American People.
Havana, June 9. The Spanish news
papers teem with articles on the loyal
ty of Spaniards in the republics of
Mexico, Uruguay and Argentina. But
that ia too well known to require ex
tended notioe. Spaniards of Argentina
and Uruguay have enrolled aa volun
teers in Cuba, and today over 8,000 of
them are serving in this island to main
tain Spanish rule and Spanish suprem
acy. Spaniards in the United States
and all Spanish-America have initiated
a naval fund, the subscriptions extend
ing Jo ver three years.
The latest evidenoe of loyalty of the
Spaniards in Spanish -Amerioa has
taken a new form. What is deemed to
be a strong anti-American feeling has
been developed by the press in the
mother oountry, aa well aa in Spanish
Amerioa. It has led to the calling to
gether of Spanish merchants in the re
publics of Mexico, Uruguay and the
Argentine Republic They have pro
tested against what they regard as the

A Returned Prospector Brings a Dis
Oakland, Cal., June 9. Dr. R. K.
Dunn, of this city, has returned from
the Alaskan gold fields with anything
but a flattering report of the outlook
for the hundreds of prospectors scatter
ed through the Bnowy wastes of that
territory. Dr. Dunn declarea that the
truth has not been told concerning the
gold fields. He left Oakland in Febru
ary last with the Walker-Pennock
expedition. He has returned very
much disgusted and satisfied that gold
mining in Alaska is an elusive dream.
"There are probably not less than
1,200 men scattered about Ressurreo
tion and Six-Mile oreeks," said the
doctor, "and olaims have been taker
up everywhere. Why, some of them
are staked out on 50-foot snowbanks
and no one knows what ia beneath
them. Mining and prospecting ia im
possible, and it will be six weeks yet
before the snow will have left the
ground. So far as the outlook for gold
is concerned, it ia difficult to tell. A
prospector can find color anywhere
along the oreeks, but it is very hard, in
most cases impossible, to save the gold.
The experiments with gold machines
have proved failures. .
"The mining oountry is located along
the creeks. Both Ressurreotion and
Six-Mile oreeks have many tributaries
and upon these prospectors have locat
ed. The outlook is decidedly bad. At
Coal bay there are about twenty-five
men, and they are waiting the melting
of the snow to go to work. Some
color has already been found there, but
the next point is to save the gold."
Dr. Dunn stated the health of those
at the looation he visited was good. The
general situation waa very disoouragiikV
he believes, because of the hundreds at
the gold fields who were idle and un
able to accomplish anything because of
the snow. Under his calculation, the
season for aotual work on olaims will
not be longer than four months.
