The Fighting at Halepa.
London, Feb. 16. A Canea dispatch
dated Sunday to the Times says the
village of Halepa, the residence of the
consuls, was in a state of great trepida
tion Sunday in , consequence of the ap
proach of the insurgents, who, joined,
it is stated, by the Greek volunteers,
assmebled in force on A,krotari penin
sula, made an advance in the neighbor
hood. The Hellenic flag hoisted on the
arrival of the .Greek warships was dis
played on the summit of an adjoining
hill. All of the members of the fam
ilies of the consular agents were trans
ferred to the warships. ' The Greek
consulate was garrisoned with an im
pressive show of force by native Chris
tian sailors in anticipation of an attack
from the Mohammedans from the vicin
ity of Canea.
, The insurgents advanced yesterday
toward the isthmus connecting the pen
insula with the mainland, and engaged
the Turkish artillery throughout the
afternoon. ; The Mohammedans at
Canea were in a state of great excite
ment, and, owing to rumors of . an in
tended attack on the consulates at
Canea, special precautions were taken
at the -offices of the British consul.
About 400 bashi-bazouks and a company
of regulars hurried out from Canea and
attacked the Christians, who were
finally -: attacked and pursued into the
interior of the peninsula. .. ,; ' ; '' '
It is reported tonight that the Chris

stand, and that they now maintain their
position. . ......
Heraklion is more quiet, as a large
part of the Chirstian population has

The governor has demanded a written
assuarnce from the consuls that the
Greek fleet is not to molest the trans
port conveying troops to Sitia.; This
transport was compelled to return Fri
day by the firing from a Greek w,arship.
This assurance was given by the British
vice-consul, and by Captain Grenfell,

The Governor's Resignation.
London, Feb. 16. A Times dispatoh
from Canea dated Sunday night' says
that the resignation of Prince Georgi
Berovitch as governor of Crete has al
ready been accepted, and he departed
Sunday afternoon for Trieste. : Despite
the official statements, there is reason
to believe he left his post without the
sultan's permission. In his letter to
the consulate representing the ' powers,
he only stated that he bad tendered his
' Although well intentioned, Bero
vitch Pasha has shown a lamentable
lack of courage during the recent trou
bles, according to the correspondent.
He practically abandoned the direction
of affairs at a critical moment. It
must, in fairness, be said that the task
imposed upon him was one of extraor
dinary difficulty. . Without gendarm
erie, without law courts, opposed by
military subordinates, thwarted in
Constantinople, and harrassed by his
administrative council, he , had no
means to make his authority respected.
It must be also borne in mind that the
sudden disappearance of Turkish ' offi
cials is often due to occult influences.
The position of the next governor will
not be envihble. .
Athens, Feb. 16. It is evident the
Grecian government has taken a seri

special from Jacksont
ville, Fla., says: Colonel Frederioo
Perez Carbo, late dispatch chief gen
eral to Maceo, received a letter from
General Ruis Rivera from the Pinar
del Rio section today. It spoke in the
highest terms of his men, their enthus
iasm in the cause, and denied in strong
terms that that province was pacified.
i "The Spanish do not come out of
their' entrenched camps," wrote the
general, "and when we want to fight
them, we have got to go to them. We
have full control of all the open coun

General Maoeo, they are full of patriot

look for Cuban independence. ......

The Spanish Mode of Warfare in Ma.
Cincinnati,. Feb. 16. The Commercial-Tribune's
special from Key West
says: A letter from Matanzas today
tells of the cruel butchery of a camp of
pacifioos by a band of Spanish guerril
las under. Major Consartez. The pa
cificos were encamped near a lake ten
miles south of Matanzas. They were
afraid to come - into the city because
small pox and other diseases were so
prevalent. Major Consartez was sent
to bring them in. Surrounding the
camp, his soldiers burst in upon them
with wild yells, shooting as they ad
vanced. Five fell at the first fire, two
being women. Alarmed and scarcely
knowing what to do, the others rushed
into the shallow water of the lake, en
deavoring to hide under the leaves of
the big lilypads and other large-leaved
plants. The troops selected their hu
man targets and began shooting them,
and only ceased when not a head was
visible. Major Consartez's official , re
port says that his detachment had been
attacked at the lake, and that they
killed ten insurgents in the fight that
followed.- Twenty paciflcos, men,
women and children, were killed. '
A Spanish Outrage.
Washington, Feb. 16. Representa
tive ' Cummings, of . New York, has
offered a resolution requesting the
president to give the house any in
formation concerning the , incident of
the stripping of two lady passengers on
board the steamer Olivette in the har
bor of Havana by Spanish soldiers and
detectives. The resolution reoites that
the alleged occurrence was described in
a New York . paper. The resolution
was referred to the committee on for
eign affairs, and a report is . expected
next week. Mr. Cummings said as
to the resolution: . . '
''If. an Englishwoman on an English
vessel had been stripped by Spanish
officials, as it has been alleged that an
American woman was stripped, within
forty-eight hours Morro castle would
come down, or some apology would be
made for it. I doubt if even Japan
would have stood it Furthermore, if
the American government stands it, in
my opinion it indicates a total loss of
manhood and the keenest sympathy
with savage inhumanity. " . ' , .

"We suggest to the honorable mem

A Rossland Miner's Unpre
AT THE RISK OF HIS OWN LIFE
Prevented an Ore Bucket From Fall
ing Upon Two Men by Throwing
Himself Upon a Whirring Windlass.
Spokane, Feb. 15. A rare act of
heroism, such as deserves to be recorded
in history and song, was performed at
Rossland, B. C, today, which saved the
lives of two miners and proved plain
Jim Hemsworth to be one of nature's
noblemeni . ' '
Jem Smith and Frank Conson were'
working at the bottom . of ,a narrow
shelf of the Young America mine, at a
depth of nearly 150 feet, engaged in
loading ore into an iron-bound bucket,
while Jim Hemsworth's duty consisted
in hauling the bucket to the surface by
means of a windlass. The heavy bucket
filled with ore, had almost reached the
top of the shelf, when the iron orank of
the windlass snapped in two like a bit
of pine, hurling Hemsworth to the
ground. , ,
Springing to his feet half, dazed by
the blow, Hemsworth saw the windlass
whirring around at a frightful rate of
speed as the loaded buoket shot down
the shaft upon the men below. He had
not a second to lose. There was just
one chanoe to save them, and he took
that chance. Jumping forward, he
threw his body upon the cogs of the
whirring windlass, thrusting ;his arms
and shoudler between the swiftly re
volving wheels. Their iron Jaws
ornnched and tore the . flesh, crushed
nerves, bone and sinews, tore ghastly
wounds from finger-tip to shoulder, but
the windlass stood still. With aa
awful jerk the buoket stopped just
above the heads of the two . men far
down the shaft. : .
Pale as death, with the blood flowing
in streams and suffering intense agony,
Hemsworth never uttered a cry nor
even a sound, as the jaws of the wheels
pinioned him fast as in a vice. Super
intendent Shields, who "Witnessed the
accident from a short distance away,
rushed to Hemsworth's aid and blocked
the machinery. '
As Hemsworth staggered back and
was about to fall, Shields oaught him
in his arms, at the same time exclaim
ing: "My God, Jim! This is awful!"
"Oh, what's the difference?" replied
the plucky fellow, "so long as I saved
the boys?" , .,
His wounds were dressed and the in
jured man made as comfortable as
could be under the circumstances. The
attending physicians are at this time
unable to state how serious Hems
worth's . injuries are likely to result,
but unless he is hurt internally they
hope to save his life. His arm, how
ever, in all likelihood will have to be
amputated at the shoulder. ; ' ;
ANNEXATION OF HAWAII.
Thurston on a Missionary Visit to
This Country. '
San Francisco, Feb. 15. Lorin A.
Thurston, ex-minister of Hawaii to the
United States, arrived from the islands
today. Thurston, as president of the
Annexation Club of Honolulu, expects
to accomplish considerable missionary
work in aid of the annexation move
ment before his return home. His mis
sion is not an official one, he says, and
he has not been sent here either by the
government or by the Annexation Club.
He says, however, that if the opportu
nity presents itself, he proposes to exert
his best efforts to aid the annexation
movement. He says:
"The all absorbing theme of discus
sion in the islands just now in annexa
tion. As $he day for the inauguration
of McKinley approaches, interest in the
annexation question is becoming in
tensified and widespread. The Annex
ation , Club has been reorganized, and
now has a membership of 6,000. ' Of
this number, a third or a fourth are
natives. The natives are. ' joining the
movement with the idea that the an
nexation of the islands to the United
States' is their only salvation from, the
Japapese, who are elbowing them in
various fields of labor.
. "The census of the islands has just
been completed.. The census shows a
population of 81,000 natives 8,000 half
castes and mixed races, 24,000 Japa
nese, 21,000 Chinese, and 25,000
whites, including Americans and Eu
ropeans. The official Veturns have oc
casioned some surprise. It was gener
ally ' presumed that the Japanese
population was greatly in excess of the
figures given. "
Hnndreds of Mohammedans Killed.
London, Feb. 15. A late dispatch to
the Times from Canea says the entire
Mohammedan population of Malevsi,
Temenos, Pirgiotiga and Monofastl en
tered Heraklion, attacking and assault
ing the Christians in the streets and
pillaging the shops and houses. . It Is
stated the soldiers assisted in this, work
of plundering. The local prefect at
Sitia reports 800 Mohammedans killed
in that district, and he is afraid the
Mohammedans in the town of Aitia
will massacre the Christians out Of revenge.
A German Farmer Murdered by His
j . Partner. . , .
Seattle, Feb. 16. In the outskirts
of Eliot, a sparsely settled community
sixteen miles, from . Seattle, Edward
Folzke, a German farmer, was killed
with an ax Friday . evening, about 7
o'clock, and the perpetrator of the -crime
attempted to cover up his work
by dragging his victim's body into the
house, to which he applied the torch. .
The cabin was entirely destroyed, and
the dead man's fate is told by a large ,
pool of blood outside the door and an
ax whioh shows blood stains and black
hair on it- The sheriff and coroner
investigated ' the case this afternoon,
with the result that Andrew 8. Kraus,
Folzke's partner, is locked up in the
county jail, charged with murder and
arson.. No one saw the orime commit
ted, but circumstantial evidence is
strong against Kraus. The two men
had lived together for eight years, and
when sober were close friends, but i
when drunk they frequently quarreled.
Kraus . denies all knowledge of the
orime, , claiming he slept in ka cabin
some distance from the scene of the
murder. Blood spots were ' found on
his overalls. ' , '
