GREAT MASS MEETING.
More Than Five Thousand Strikers at
, ,, . , , McCrea Schoolhouse.
Pittsburg, Aug. 4. The mass meet
ing of : miners at the McCrea school
house today was the greatest during the
strike, and probably the largest gather
ing of the kind ever seen in Allegheny
county. . More , than 5,000 striking
miners were gathered for an all-day
session arid labor leaders harangued
them in , various tongues, while bands
of music served to stir up the' enthusi
asm to the highest pitch. From early
morning miners of every nationality
were gathering at the sohoolhouse.
They came in big bands and small ones,
but the. one that set the camp wild with
enthusiasm came from Turtle creek.
It had 1,600 miners from that camp,
and when they came in sight there was
such cheering as has not . been heard
since the Btrike started. 1
They came down, to the schoolhouae
with bands playing stirring airs and
banners waving in the breeze. Cheer
after cheer went up from thecawp, and
the marchers returned them with a
will. When the . miners of the two
parties , met there ' were some , wild
scenes. Men rushed around shaking
hands, shouting, and even embracing
each other. The crowd that had gath
ered was so much r larger than the men
had anticipated that they were , wild1
A few minutes after the arrival of
the Turtle Creek division the speakers
arrived in carriages. ' They were A. P.
Carrick, president of the Painters' and
Decorators' Unidn; W.t A. Carney, vice
president of the Amalgamated Associa
tion; Mrs. Jones, the female agitator,
of Chicago, and M. C. Monahan, of the
Painters' and ? Deoorators', Union. In
addition to, these, the leaders of, the
miners were lined up to speak as the
occasion demanded. " ".' ;', ' i '!. i '
.' J. T.f McCoy, a prominent member
of the typographical union, extended
the sympathy and financial support of
the printers of the country, and said
the organization tmade per capita
assessment for five weeks to be paid for
the benefit of the strikers.
f Two new camps' were instituted this
afternoon after the meeting.;) The one
at Plum Creek is Camp Resistance, 'and
the one at Sandy Cieek will be called
Camp Isolation. , Each camp ,in ithe
beseiged district will be kept, supplied
with guards. Headquarters, as hereto
fore, will beat Camp Determination,
at Turtle Creek. . - cr'"T
' ' The foroe of deputies was kept busy
during the entire night. Every move
was watched, and troubleseemed to be
in the air, . The condition is said to
hdfirbeen critical. Both sides feel
that there is a crisis near at hand.
The officials of the. New York & Cleve:
land Gas Coal Company gave out the
statement tonight that their forces were
increased in the .Turtle Creek and
Sandy Creek mines, and that more men
were at work at Plum Creek than since
the oampaign against the company
started.., . ,i, .. ?
The hearing of Patrick Dolan will be
held tomorrow before Justice Semmins,
of Turtle Creek. The miners' officials
have retained attorneys, and the case
will be fought to the end. 1 '
1 Whatever the immediate oulmination
of the strike situation may be, it is
evident that Sheriff Lowrey consider?
the time a critical one. Tonight he
telegraphed Governor Hastings fully
concerning the conditions existing here,
with the evident purpose of having the
governor prepared for any emergenoy
that may arise in the near future. It
is learned that , the governor has been
impressed witn the gravity of the situ
ation, and that he has instructed th
adjutantf-general to remain in his office
awaiting any requisition that may be
made on him for troops. '
While the ranks of the strikers at
Turtle Creek were being augmented,
parties of marchers were in the field to
induce miners not to go to work. About
250 gathered at Plum Creek, mines be
fore .the men started to work.; A line
was opened up and as the diggers neared
the pit mouth they psased between the
lines of strikers. :.- There was no attempt
at foce, but a number of diggers
stopped and talked with the strikers
and then passed into the mine. Some
were induced to come out. About an
hour later the strikers moved off in the
direction of the McCrea schoolhouse.
At Oak Hill mine a demonstration
was made, but no men were induced to
quit. At Sandy Creek mine, many
men are out. The company say 100
are at work, while ' the strikers say
only 22 went in. .. .

Tampa, Fla.:, , A"g- 3 The stories

about an attack by insurgents on the

passengers who left Havana on the
Plant steamer Mascot and arrived here
tonight. Among the number was Senor

fled from Havana.
The attack referred to was made on
the little village of Mariano, about 10
miles southwest of the city, and
the terminus of the antiquated and di
lapidated , Mariano railroad. ' Senor
Calbajer was an eye witness of the at
taok. Heays that the attack was led
by Juan Delgado and Hernandez. The
insurgent chiefs left 100 of their
troops outside the town and . carried
800 to the attack. They were well
armed with .dynamite and rapid-fire
guns, and met with . but, flight resist
ance.' ; The engagement, was1 short and
desperate. Forty -nine Spanish troops
were killed :and" 180 ? wounded; .1 'two
Cubans were killed and 40 wounded.
The inhabitants ,.of the town fled for
their lives, leaving the insurgents in
complete possession. They sacked the
place and secured $4000Q' in gold and
a large quantity of supplies that they
could not carry- away. v i i , .

A Manitoba Farmer Believes That He

Winnipeg, Aug. 8. A Whitemouth,
Man., dispatoh' to the Free Press says:
Inquiries , regarding, a large balloon
whioh was seen passing in a northeast

29th,' , three miles from Whitemouth,
have elicited the faot that 'the evening
was remarkably calm and cool. . Farmer
Henderson was standing at the door of
his barn, and jvas taking a glance
around the sky when he saw a large
oblong object sailing slowly across the
horizon. ! Gradually he made out the
car, and then he1 saw a large sail swing
into view, Astonishment held him

the balloon drifted slowly out of ' sight
in the twilight.". Henderson, on re

THE YELLOW FEVER GERM.
Dr. Senaril'li's Account of His Recent
' ' Discovery.
i Washington, ' Aug. 8. Surgeon-Gen-eraj
Wyman, of the marine, hospital
service, has had translated the account
written by Dr. Seuarilli, of Montevideo,
of his discovery of what he claims to
be the yellow fever germ, and which he
calls the icteroid bacillus. He says the
bacillus . was discovered in the second
case examined. The dootor dwells upon
the difficulty of making sure of results
because of the numerous microbes to be
found in yellow fever. The germ which
he holds to be responsible-for yellow
fever, Dr. Senarellr'says, is found in
the blood or , tissues,' and not in the
gastro-intestinal cavities. He notes
the fact, however, that in yellow fever,
as in typhoid, the digestive tract is the
seat of abundant bacilli coli, but does
not ' associate these with real yellow
fever microbes. ; He concludes, there
'fore, that the virus of yellow fever does
not reside in the intestinal tube, and
"that is toxine, instead of being ab
sorbed by the intestinal walls, is elabor
ated in the interior of the organs and
in the blood." .i , ,

MASSACRED BY NATIVES.
Tragic ' Fate of a' Party of Australian
' ' Goldseekers. '. v
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 4. -The
steamship , Miowera, from Sydney,
brings information that news of still
another massacre has been . received at
Sydney. Not long ago a number of
Australia's army of unemployed were
attracted by stories of fabulous gold
panning at Papua and other interior
New Guinea points. ' Their ranks have
been terribly thinned by murder, star
vation and fatal swamp , fevers. . To
make matters worse, every native who
helped a white was marked for the
tomahawk. ; '
...The remnant of these white pioneers
went to Vanapa for a final effort to
make their fortunes. Their stores gave
out and ' for months they lived on
"damper" and tea." .Natives in the vi
oinity claimed to be iU-treated by the
government in the way of scant stores, ,
and decided to teach the govenrment a
lesson' by killing all the whites within
reach. The whites were raided at
night and put to death , with toma
hawks, being easy victims. After lorig
suffering they Were weak and emaci-'
ated, and, could not defend themselves.
Mny massacres had occurred in the
same place previously, but the govern-,
ment has never attempted .., to , punish
the murderers. ; , .
Later . news confirms the massacres
whioh occurred 85 miles from Port
Moresby. The entire settlement of na
tives and whites had their heads split
open by a large band of savages. ' The

ELL THREE HUNDRED FEET
LHis Body Was Found Boon After by a
.. Searching; Party and Taken From
There to Taooma. ,
Tacoma, ' Aug. 2. Porfessor S. cE
McClure, of Eugene, a member of the
Mazamas' society that made the ascent
of Mount Rainier Tuesday, lost his foot
ing while .descending the mountain
Wednesday, and fell 800 feet. He
struck on a pile of rocks and was m
stantly killed, . His body was'reoovered
several hours later by a searching party,
and was brought to Tacoma tonight.
The Mazamas encamped in Paradise
valley Monday, and about 80 of the
party began the acsent to the peak that
day,, arriving at Gibraltar rock that
night, where they camped.
,;. Early Wednesday morning Professor
McClure, Professor' Baillie, Professor
Mitchell, of New York, and Dr. E.
Dewitt Connell, ' of ' Portland, started
ahead of the main party, and arrived
at the mountain top about noon. , Pro
fessor McClure carried a barometej for
the purpose of taking observations on
the top of the mountain. - '
Returning, they met 'the remainder
of the party near the summit, and, ar
riving at Gibraltar rock, awaited their
return. r . , ....
They arrived at Camp Muir about
9:30, on their ; way to Paradise valley,
and soon after 1 leaving that point, lost
their, way. The leader and, the vari
ous ' members of the party began cau
tiously' to search for the trail. The
lights of the camp in Paradise valley
were ' plainly visible, and, although it
was a tramp of nearly four hours, the
way. to this camp seemed so plain that
nobody felt the least alarmed. ;,
, Professor McClure ventured toward
the edge of a cliff, and announced that
he saw a large pile of rocks a. few hunt
dred feet .distant, and thought he had
discovered 1 the trail; ' Dr. Connell
stood within 60 feet of him, keeping
Up a conversation, and attempting to
direct hiB movements.
Darkness had fallen, and the only
light came from ' the snow, which ren
derd the members' of the party only
half visible. 'Dr.' Connell says he had
just answered Porfessor McClure's ball,
and was peering intemtiyin another
direction, . when he ' heard a sudden
crash, ' like the ' falling of rock. Ha
looked in the direction where Professor
McClure had stood a moment before,
but he was not to be seen. He at once
called t to him, but reoeived no re
sponse, and the members of ' the party
began a systematic search, but, failing
to find McClure, concluded that he had
fallen off the cliff. : . ,
It was nearly an hour before the
trail to camp was found, and the mem
bers of the party, with the exoeption oi
Dr. Connell and a lady and gentleman
from Oregon, started to come to report
A searching party was' instantly or
ganized, and under the direction of Dr.
Nunn, of, Portland, began the search
for Dr. McClure's body. -. The place ol
the accident was so closely described
hy the members of the party who had
been with Dr McClure that the search
ers were soon able to reach the point
on the side of the mountain directly
underneath. ( ! ,-, , ,
' Daylight b'roke about 8:30, and the
body of Dr. McClure was found lying
on a great pile of boulders, forming a
great.i forbidding shelf . . . v ,
' Professor McClure's body fell a sheer
800 feet, and bounded about 40 feet out
ward toward the' edge of the cliff. It
lay within 12 feet of the face of the
mountain, and, , had it Ifallan over,
would have dropped two or three miles,
and in all probability would have dis
appeared into one of the huge crexifaBet
whioh seam the mountain there. '',","'.'
Professor , McClure carried a heavy
roll of blankets and his barometer,
strapped upon his back. The barometei
was broken, but all of his papers and
notes of observation were found in his
pockets intact. "''; ,'"--v
Dr. Connell had remained on the
mountain all night, to enable the
searching party to locate the spot where
the acoident occurred by. shouting to
them through the darkness. The lady
who remained at this point was put
into a sleeping bag, and passed a fairly
comfortable night. .
' -. The Sun's Eclipse. .
' ' St. Louis, Aug.' 2. A partial eolipse
of the sun was observed here this forer
noon: ! Ira R. Hicks, an astronomer,
said: "It was' a peculiarly beautiful
exhibition, my telescope showing Vio
lent perturbations. To the southwest
appeared an enormous spot with a
black ohasm in its center into which,
like nodding plumes, waves of fire
seemed to fall. Toward the northeast
of the giant spot and just ' above the
line of, ths moon's pathway were two
smaller spots of similar description.
These. indicated unusual activity in the
aun due to a season of storms on that
planet. ' The earth always feels the
effect of extradordinary sun perturba
tions, and I predict we shall have
storms and eleotrioal displays as the re
mit of the solar disturbance."'
ELDER ON THE OCEAN.
The Portland Steamer Clears fur the
: '' . New Eldorado.
Astoria, Or., Aug. 8. A 4:15 o'clock .
this morning, the O. R. & N., steamer
Elder, with 883 passengers from Port
land and 25 from Astoria, bound for
theClondyke, slowly left her dock, and,
in the dim light of the early day, set
her nose towards the far north, the land
of promise to the goldhunters. t . .
Hundreds were on the docks even at
that hour, and every passenger was on
deck to bid a last farewell to friends
and civilization. As the steamer got
under way, a mighty shout was given
by those on shore, which echoed from
the distant hills and was answered by
those on board. Last words of warning
and advice .were spoken, and soon the
big ship was but a shadow in the dis
tance. ...:..' !. I: J.,', ;
'.Several joined the ship here at the
last moment. , One man traded a dia
mond and $500 gold watch for another's
outfit; and one man bought half in
terest in the outfit of another whose
partner left him, and. a man from Port
land, who jumped on the steamer at
the last moment, found an outfit here
all packed, which the person who or-,
dered it failed to call for.' - Without
question, he paid the invoice price and
had it loaded on the steamer. ,.A
During the day; the passengers of the
steamer ; were entertained, by the citi?
zens, and a jolly time was had while,
the ship's machinery, which was slight
ly damamged on the trip down the
river, was repaired.
The Shooting: in Scottdale. ., , ,
; Scottdale, Pa.t, Aug. 3. Coroner
Qwens today held an inquest on the re-
mains of William Cummings, the non
union mill worker who was killed last
night in a quarrel with strikers. A
large number of witnesses were ex
amined, but the only one who gave
positive testimony was Constable Long
neoker, who testified that he was stand
ing within a few feet of the parties
when the shooting ' took place,' and
plainly saw the flash from the revolver
in the' hands of William G, Hubba.
The jury found Hubbs guilty, and he.
was arrested. Hubbs was a roller in
the employ of the- Scottdale Iron &
Steel Company before the strike, and is
one of the best known men in town.
While opinions differ as to the effect of
Cumming's death, it is believed that
the trouble last night will end the riot
ing and bloodshed, and the strikers
will be more moderate in their actions. .
The town tonight is quiet.
