Wealthy Tutti-Frutti Maker Sued for
Breach of Promlae.
,- Among the most success! ul entertain
erg on the Eastern vaudeville gtage is
Miss Myrtle Thurlow, who though but
20 yskrs of age, haibeen somewhat of
a public favorite for gome five or six
years. Recently she commenced suit
' againit Thomas Adams, Jr., the chew
ing gum millionaire, for$100,000 dam
ages, charging him with having broken
his promise to marry her. The fact
that Mr. Adams already has a wife
does not aeem to have deterred Miss
Thurlow from instituting legal proceed
ings. The plaintiff, who Is a tiny per-:
. son, with fair hair, regular features,
and soft blue eyes, is reserved of man
ner and gentle of tone until she gets to
discussing what she calls the perfidy
. of the wealthy gum maker. The latter
asserts that the suit Is simply an at
tempt at blackmail. This Miss Thur
low and her -mother indignantly deny.
The young woman's eyes snap when
: she speak of this charge. Adams, she
says, visited her often and sent her a
great many letters full of endearing
, phrases. At length she discovered he
wag already married and had a fam
ily. He assured her, she says, that he
- would soon obtain a divorce. This he

RIOT AT LEADVILLfc.
threatened Aaaault of Striking Miner.
Leadville, Sept. 22. At 1 o'olook
this morning, three heavy explosions
aroused the sleepers in the eastern part
of the oity for blocks around the Coro
nado mine, wbioh is the one that first
resumed operations, and which was
heavily barrioaded, and well stocked
with provisions and arms.
The explosions were followed by a
fusilade of rifle shots, apparently from
within the barricade, and rapid but ir
regular shots from the outside, ap
parently from a widely soattered at
tacking foroe, who were on hand to
proteot the retreat of the dynamiters.
' The shooting lasted for ten minutes,
and all was silent for about five min
utes, when desultory firing was re
newed and kept up until daybreak.
: Ten minutes after the first explo
sion, a telephone message from the
'Uoronaau bjihwju wjuu uuuuuj uibiu.
ibarrioade had been injured.
The telegraph offloe is watonea Dy
several bands of men grouped in dark
corners and alleys, and this may mean
they propose to prevent any communi
cations. The oity is in a panio of fear.
County and oity offloials are out look
ing after the work of the polioe and
sheriffs. Bullets frequently whistle
over the offloe from whioh this message
is being sent. x
At 2 o'olook a fire has broken out
and is believed to be the oil tanks in
side the barrioade at the Coronado
shaf thouse. A telephone message just
received from the mine says that none
of the defenders have been hurt as yet.
1 2:10 A. M. The sights and sounds
beggar description. All the whistles
in the oity are blowing,' and two or
three steam sirens add disoord to the
dark night's alarming ohorus. The
sharp oraoks of rifles punctuate the
tooting at irregular intervals.
Citizens have gone to the soene with
whatever arms they oan gather, and a
militia oompany bas just marohed to
ward the Coronado under arms.
The whistle whioh calls out all citi
zens: in case of emergency , has just
sounded, and the, streets are full of
rushing men, crying women and chil
2:15 A. M. Another heavy explo
sion has just ooourred. Five minutes
ago, the Coronado telephone bore the
message that the defenders were too
busy to answer questions.
As soon as the fire broke out, the fire
department went to the soene and the
flames seem to be dying out, indicating
effeotive work by the firemen.
It is said that a fireman named
O'Keefe, when he started to turn on
water at the fire, was shot. Shots are
still heard at infrequent intervals.
8:00 A. M. The first Herald-Democrat
reporter to return from the fire
states that besides Fireman O'Keefe
two unknown men are dead. Be can
not tell as yet bow many have been
wounded, and is not sure that this is
the list of dead.
8:10 A. M. It is now reported that
John Mahoney, who works at the Big
Four, while on his way from the mine,
and near the Emmet mine, was shot
through tha stomach and is believed to
be - dead. Another man had all his
olothing torn from bis body, but es
caped with his life.
The miners' strike, of wbioh to
night's lawlessness is. the outcome, be
gan three months ago yesterday, when
at 11 o'olook at night the men in two
or three of the leading mines walked
out. The nnion scale of wages in
Leadville was $3 for everybody, but in
1898, when the prioa of silver dropped
below 60 oents an ounoe an agreement
was made that $2.50 should be.accept
ed for some olasses of work until sil
ver should return to 83 oents. Tins
agreement the miners afterward de
blared was nnfair, as many of the
mines paid, large dividends. It was to
enforoe the original scale of f 3 that the
men struck. About 8,000 men were
involved. Within the last two weeks
several mines have resumed work, and
this week the output has been 1,200
tons daily, against 2,000 tons before
A dipsacth from Denver states that

TRUNK FULL OF DYNAMITE.
A Startling Discovery Made in a Chi
cago Lodgiug-House. -
Chicago, Sept. 22. Joseph Bestman,
said by the police to be an anarchist,
left at 18 Sedgwiok court three years
ago this fall, a trunk oontaining suffi
cient dynamite to have destroyed an
acre of property in Chicago, and to
have killed hundreds of people. The
discovery was made by aooident. . Best
man was not found, but the polioe re
ceived information in the afternoon
that he is living in Dallas, Tex. , and
wired the ohief of police there to arrest
him at onoe. The discovery of this
enormous' quantity of explosive ma
terial and the story of Bestman him
telf, so far as now known to the polioe,
brings to light a tale of anachistio plot
tings suoh as Chioago has not revealed
sinoe the dark days of 1885, when
the existenoe of the oity was threat
ened, and Spies and his oomrades were
swung on the gallows for the bomb:
throwing at the Haymarket massacre.
Muoh correspondence with the con
demned anarchists was also found.
London and Liverpool are both at
the level of the sea.

Serious Times Ahead for Soma of the
' Western Lines.
Chicago, Sept, 23. Unless the stock
holders of the Western roads soon take
aotion similar to that which resulted
in the formation of the Joint Tariff
Association among tha trunk lines of
the East, there are serious times ahead
for some of the Western lines. The
situation among Western roads has
never been worse in their history than
it is today, and it is telling severely on
their revenues. Eaoh line is putting
in reduoed rates to seoure business as it
offers, and indications are that rates on
all commodities of oonsequence will
soon be down to bedrock. The daily
bulletins issued by the agent of the
roads in 'Washington show that the
tariffs issued are failing in their reve
nues to the roads, and in the opinion
of some of the conservative traffia offi
cials of the Western roads, the only
thing that will remedy the situation is
aotion by the owners and investors in
the road and a demand that the presi
dents take aciton that will, in a short
time, end the demoralization.
The Western Freight Association is
the latest oragnization of the roads in
freight matters, and Commissioner
Midgley, of that organization, found it
necessary to issue last week a personal
appeal to the roads to inform his office
at this same time the information is
sent out to the interstate pommerce
commission, of the proposed reduoed
rates. Numerous instances have oc
enrred where members of the association
have given the commissioner no notice
whatever of their intention to cut
rate and his information has come
from the agent at Washington. He
asked the roads, to notify him simul
taneously with the notiog sent tP the
commission, and to continue the prac
tice until better conditions can be in
augurated. One of the prominent
offloials of one of the great Western
lines said today: -
''I am eonvjnoed that if the stock
holders and investors do pot interest
themselves in this matter before Jong,
some of the lines will have great diffi
culty in avoiding bankruptcy."
FAIR OPEN IN GLORY. ,
Tha Public Throngs the Great Expo
Portland, Or. , Sept. 22.The Ore
gon Industrial Exposition was opened
Saturday night amid a blaze of splen
dor and glory that more than insured
its snooess, and the verdict of the pub
lio which attended, 8,000 strong, was
that it merited the claim of being the
greatest and most attractive exposition
ever held in the Northwest. This ver
dict was not difficult to arrive at, as
the marvelous transformation that the
big building ,has undergone has made
it a hundred fold more attractive than
the bleak, barrack-like struoture, light
ed by "glarish aro lamps, that is remem
bered of former years, The people
weie surprised; the new music hall
and the new promenade surprised them
exceedingly, but it was , an agreeable
and happy surprise, and they went
away delighted. Mayor Pennoyer for
mally opened the exposition with a
brief address,, and pressed the button
which started the machinery in motion.
The fair will oontinue until October
17, and the various nights will be re
plete with attractions.

A SOARING MACHINE TESTED.
Octave Chanute's Int ention Has Proven
a Great Success.
Chicago. Sept. 21. The first free
test of . Ootave Chanute's albatross
soaring machine, invented and oon
straoted by William Paul, was made
ac Miller, Ind., last evening under fa
vorable conditions, while the machine
was heavily loaded with ballast, so as
to prevent it from flying any great dis
tance, and was anchored by four ropes,
each 200 feet long. The three points
whioh the trial was to deoide, first, as
to whether it would leave the chute
-ivenly; second, whether it would right
itself in the air; third, whether, when
it commenced to desoend, it . would
move downward slowly, and alight
easily, were all determined in a manner
gratifying both to the inventor and
owner. The flight was less than 100
feet, hut the descent and final alight
ing on the sand were as graceful and
even as though the bird from whioh
the machine was patterened.
The trial proved the maohine perfect
ly safe, a proof which was the more
acceptable, inasmuch as it has been
asserted that the maohine was danger
ous, and that an attempt to fly would
be sure to result in death to the operat
or. Another test will be made soon
MICHAEL, THE IRISH WONDER.
Broke the World's Record for a One
Hour C orapetition. Paced Race.
New York, Sept. 21. James
Michael, the Irish wonder, smashed all
the American reoords for one-hour com
petition (paced) raoe this afternoon at
the first annual national circuit meet
ing of the Quill Wheelmen at Manhat
tan beaoh. Twenty-seven miles and
1,690 yards stands to the oredit of the
foreigner for one hour, but Frank Star
buck, of Philadelphia, was only thirty
yards behind him at the finish, And
only for some bad blundering on the
part of his pacemakers shortly after
the fifth mile,' would have given
Miohael the race of his life. Starbuok
lost a little more than a half mile in
the early part of the contest by having
no pacemakers, but in the last twenty
minutes even at the terrino gait both
were traveling, snooeeded in ,not only
passing his competitor as they spun
around the track, but had nearly caught
him at the finish, having gained over a
lap and a half. " Some of the credit of
this wonderful exhibition of enduranoe
and speed was due to Starbuck's paoe
makers, who. evidently tried to make
up for their early blundering, and in a
gieat part succeeded.
THREE FASTEST HEATS.
Remarkable Performance of Star Pointer
at Mystic Point. .
Medford, Mass., Sept. 21. - Star
Pointer, at Mystio Point,' this after
noon, not only beat two aooredited
faster borsesKobert J. (2:01 and
Frank Agan (2:03) but paced the
three fastest heats ever made in compe
tition, the time being 2:02 , 2:03 13
and 2:03, an average of 2:03. He
also lowered the world's reoord for the
fastest heat ever paced 2:02 3
well as the reoords for the fastest quar
ter and half 29 and 59, respec
tively. The race between the three
pacers was phenomenal, for, while in
the first heat Robert J. was beaten by
ten lengths, in the next two he was
close on the leaders, coming in second
in the third heat. Frank Agan in the
whole raqe was never a length behind,
and at one time was a nose to the
good. Star Pointer, however, man
aged to go under the wire first in every
heat, and must have had something in
reserve, for MoCarthy never raised bif
whip in the three timea,
